Diagnosed with throat cancer in 1964, I faced a crisis in my life. I found myself constantly praying the same thing: "O God, I know You can heal, because of all the evidence of Your Word, as well as the other miracles which I have seen with my own eyes. But ... the problem is ... You can ... if You want to ... Is it Your will to heal me? All I am asking for is a positive yes or no." I picked up my Bible and read from Romans 8 verse 26, "We know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit himself maketh intercession for us ... according to the will of God." That was it! It came with certainty to me that God had said yes. I would be healed by a miracle.
In March 2013, Anton, who had experienced a dramatic miracle ten years prior in Perm, Russia, stood on the platform with David Hathaway in Israel and gave his amazing testimony: how when he was living in Russia he was dying in hospital from gangrene in his leg and hepatitis; how his grandmother insisted David prayed with him; how David visited him in the hospital and told him not to allow the doctors to cut his leg off - although this would mean certain death. Yet, Anton believed God and the healing came.
I believe that in this time of crisis in Britain, God is calling the church to pray for the nation. The Bible is clear in Psalm 133 that where there is unity, ‘the Lord commands the blessing’. That is why I am asking you and your church to support our major prayer event on Saturday 8 September 2018 at Central Hall Westminster.
I know Jesus is alive, I talked with Him this morning. The reality of our relationship with Christ is in knowing Him. I talk to Him, He talks to me. Receiving my healing from throat cancer many years ago led me into a more positive experience in my Christian life: the realisation that if God says it in His Word then He will always do it!
The Scripture teaches that Jesus healed all who came to Him. Jesus is not only able to heal you, but He also has the desire to heal you. He wants you to be well and live a healthy life. In 2003, I was diagnosed with Lung Cancer, and God worked a miracle; this is my testimony and encouragement for you.
When I was praying over my lung cancer in 2003, one passage was such an encouragement. In Jeremiah 33 God speaks to the prophet: at the time Jeremiah was locked in a prison – He wasn’t sitting in luxury watching a televangelist, he was in a prison! – And God says, “Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know.”
