Question:

I took seriously ill six and more years ago and found the sickness and its diagnosis a mystery. The doctor I attended is a Christian and as such up until I got this sick was guilty of having prescribed to me not once but twice the wrong medication, the result of which was horrific, painful and life threatening. When she diagnosed the blood six years ago and my husband and I went to get the results, this same doctor ran from the surgery and got into her car and drove away. This happened twice and on the third time after she drove away a young doctor came and read the report and closed it and told us that the more senior doctor needed to tell us and to explain these results and then she left the surgery.

God told me a few days later to go to a certain church building somewhere we had never been before in a city we had never been to before and my husband got me into the car and I lay down and he drove me to the church and left me there and went off to park the car. I got to the front of the church and sat down and waited and when the service started it was explained that the guest speaker was still on his way from the airport, his plane having been delayed. He got there and immediately it seemed he came looking for me and told me to stand up which I did. God spoke to this man who was visiting this side of Australia for the first time and through him God told us exactly how the doctors had spoken over me and He had healed me. He then went on to say what He had done to my body, how He had touched the blood, this part and that part and how he was returning iron to the body and healing me. Everyone including the guest speaker was amazed at what the Lord said.

I have never had full benefit of this healing in my body. I think it is because our daughter emotionally and spiritually beats on me without ceasing and my husband tells her to stop. However, she keeps on keeping on until I stopped going near her and stopped her coming near me. I have just had enough. My body is sore, my feet and hands are the sorest I have ever known, in fact I didn't know I could have sore hands particularly sore as these of mine.


Answer:

This is just a portion of a much longer note. I decided to publish it to show how true Paul's words were. "For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables" (II Timothy 4:3-4).

Portions of this woman's story rings of falsehoods. Doctors don't run from giving patients the results of their tests. But notice the claim that by a leading of God this woman visited a faith healer who told her that God had healed her, but it didn't happen. Does that make this woman sit up and take notice that she seen a false prophet? "And if you say in your heart, 'How shall we know the word which the LORD has not spoken?' - when a prophet speaks in the name of the LORD, if the thing does not happen or come to pass, that is the thing which the LORD has not spoken; the prophet has spoken it presumptuously; you shall not be afraid of him" (Deuteronomy 18:21-22). No, she finds an excuse that it didn't work because she doesn't get along with her daughter.

In other words, she has no difficulty that God's word can be be made void by people acting sinfully. Obviously this woman does not hear the voice of God or receives visions from Him. Obviously the man she saw was not a prophet of God and does not have the power to heal. "The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness" (II Thessalonians 2:9-12).
