I promised you, dear Lord,
After you healed me,
To tell the story around the world.
“If you tell it around the world,”
“I’ll heal them around the world too!!”
Here’s the story Lord.
Do the rest!
Wildfire Divine Favour
To all of you who have been diagnosed of an incurable disease.
Don’t lose hope.
Rise and be healed!
I wrote this book for you.
I don’t know how the disease started.
I was too small when it manifested in my body, too small to know when or how it began. All I knew was that I had a kind of Asthma which the doctors described as acute and which grew worse as I grew older.
My grandfather, it was said, died at a relatively young age of asthma and I believe that the asthma in my life was an ancestral spirit transferred genetically down the line to me. However, or whenever it came, the fact was that I had a very terrible, torturing disease that made my childhood, adolescent and teenage years very miserable and intolerable.
Besides, when I was barely 1 year and 6 months, my parents took me to an open air evangelistic rally and one of those nights it rained so heavily and having no place to run into, the rain beat down so heavily upon my frail and yet tender body. The result was that I developed a form of bronchi pneumonia that was classified as chronic.
So I grew up very sick and as often happens in such cases, other ailments found their way into my body – like the intestinal problem; they called it intestinal obstruction.
Then my joints became infected and it became increasingly difficult to kneel for long periods of time without getting cramps in my legs and knees. This experience was so painful I would scream again and again. My mother who was ever so close would become overwhelmed with sorrow and I could see her eyes well up with tears. Most of those periods, it would take some time, prayer, and effort to get me to move normally again and be free from the pains. At other times I would simply have to be rushed to the hospital where I would be admitted for days.
Then there was the acute form of malaria that necessitated my taking anti-malaria drugs every other week.
As I look back over those years of pain and suffering, I wonder which one of the ailments I dreaded and feared the most. It is very difficult to determine as each of them came with its own peculiar pain, torture, and misery. The stomach ailment caused me so much pain that I took more drugs than I can remember. Most of the times I had to open the capsules and drink the powdery contents, or chew it if it was a tablet so as to hasten its operation. I would be in such pain and be screaming. Sometimes I just passed out into unconsciousness because of the pain and screaming. Then my parents would rush me to the hospital where I would be admitted.
Once, when I was in the Junior Seminary, the pains in the stomach erupted so suddenly that our English teacher – God bless his soul – had to rush me to the hospital in his car. I screamed all through and vomited all over his car. Of course, I was instantly admitted and my parents had to be brought in. Such incidents, matter of fact, were very regular. In fact, the emergency ward of the hospital became like a second home!
Life was so unbearable. It was a story of pains, sickness, and agony. It was a history of hospitals, drugs, admissions, x-rays, and so on.
Yet I cannot think of any of those infirmities that tortured and terrified me more than that asthma. I dreaded because it often attacked without warning and viciously; I still wonder how I managed to live through it all.
The experience was horrible. It was as though some invisible suction tube was used to suck all the air out of the world. Imagine being in a place where there was no air. I would struggle to breathe, desperately gasping for breath, clasping to life, struggling to survive. At such moments every air I succeed in taking into my lungs caused so much pain and suffering I wondered if it were not better that I just stopped breathing and die. It was as if a comb made of tiny and sharp metal pricks was being used to scratch my heart; the pain was as though coals of fire were burning my heart. I still can’t describe it in details. Those around me could hear the wheezing sound as I struggled to breathe, every air that passes through making as it were a whistling sound.
It was simply horrible.
The doctors that were treating me placed me under so much restriction that I hated life. I was eventually stopped from riding my bicycle which I loved riding so much and which my dad bought for me as a reward for my obedience.
There were two special medical reports regulating everything from my diet to my activities. It was just like being in a prison, cut off from all the fun and tortured by pain and agony, harassed by diseases described by doctors as incurable.
I remember, once, after a very terrible asthmatic attack, one in which I had nearly lost my life, I was admitted in the hospital. My mother sat by my bedside and watched as I took my drugs so dutifully, faithfully, and obediently. Her eyes were filled with tears as she watched me. She was later to sit like that for years to come both in hospital wards and in the dining table watching me take drugs and shedding tears as she did so. In fact, I often wondered what was going through her mind at such times. She told me later that as she watched me take those drugs – and I took quite some plenty, an average of ten tablets per meal – she would silently ask God in her heart, “How long, O God? How long would this boy suffer like this? How long will he continue to take hundreds of drugs like he’s doing?” What gave her much heartache, as she said later, was the faithfulness and loyalty with which I took those drugs. She said the sight of it broke her heart and moved her to tears.
After the particular asthmatic attack that I was narrating earlier on, my mum asked the doctor, “Is there no hope for this boy? Is there no permanent cure for this sickness? When will this end?” The doctor made a statement which I overheard and which haunted me for years and which was the basis of the feelings of hopelessness and depression that afflicted me in my adolescent and teenage years; feelings that led to seven attempted suicides. He said, “Once an asthmatic patient, always an asthmatic patient.” I was like a man stabbed through the chest. I felt doomed, and hopeless.
That doctor said they were doing the best they could and if I only followed their regulations and prescriptions, the problems would be fairly contained. So here I was sentenced to a life of pain and agony. I had nothing much to look forward to, other than painful asthmatic attacks, intestinal obstructions, knee cramps, drugs, admissions and their likes.
I loved that doctor because he was caring and really did his best. As a matter of fact, I’m yet to see over all these years another doctor like him. And he seemed to know how to bring temporary relief to me each time I was rushed to the hospital and I was ever so grateful. He was an expert on children and such afflictions as I had and I believe that if anyone could have cured me, it would have been him.
He did his best, but it was not enough, and I became discouraged, depressed, and hopeless.
The Change Begins
After I gave my heart to Jesus and experienced the new birth, I was so excited about it all that for some time I didn’t really mind the asthma. It still came and went. I still took my drugs dutifully and faithfully. I knew that God had power to heal but strangely enough, it simply didn’t occur to me to ask Him to heal me or that He would even heal me. It just didn’t seem to be my priority at that time. I was simply too excited to be born-again that every other thing just faded into insignificance.
But, as I studied the bible on that fateful day, August 25th 1991, I came to that particular verse which was destined to alter my life so dramatically especially in the area of my health. I read that,
“If anyone is IN CHRIST, he is a NEW CREATION; the OLD has GONE, the NEW has COME!” – 2 Corinthians 5:17
I was inextricably glued to that verse and I couldn’t help but ask in my heart if this newness only applied to the area of my morality, that is, my lifestyle, behaviour, desires, and appetites. “What of the area of my health?” I mused. In my life, the OLD included asthma, pneumonia, intestinal infirmity, acute malaria, and knee cramps. I wondered if they were among the things that were GONE.
Try as much as I could, I couldn’t push those thoughts out of my mind and somewhere from deep within me, the answer came – YES! That inner voice which I now know to be the Holy Spirit told me that my sicknesses have all gone. The asthma was gone and so were the rest.
I wouldn’t say that I prayed for healing, yet in a profound and inexplicable, yet very simple way, I KNEW that I was healed. I KNEW that I was never going to have another attack of asthma or be admitted in any hospital again.
The covenant with sickness was broken.
I was healed!
I was overwhelmed and deeply moved. It was a consciousness that was joyful but very sober and solemn. Tears of joy and gratitude filled my heart and flowed profusely. I was actually healed. There was no shadow of doubt anywhere. I went to my room, to the place where my drugs were kept and put them all into a polythene bag. I was alone in the house. I also got hold of my two medical reports. The former I threw away while I burnt the later. I just knew I was never going to need them again. The OLD has GONE! The NEW has COME!
I never told my parents or any other person what I did. I watched myself as days turned into weeks and weeks into months. I ate everything I had been forbidden to eat and did everything I was forbidden to do. It was actually like another new birth experience.
No more drugs, no more hospitals, and no more pains.
I was free!
Five months later, I told my parents what had happened. I told them that I wasn’t taking any more drugs and that I was violating the doctors’ regulations. First, they were alarmed and shocked. But as I narrated the experience and mentioned the fact that it had occurred five months earlier, they became amazed and were filled with joy.
It’s been sixteen years now as I write.
Till date, my mum still pauses to stare at me puzzled. Many times she will express her amazement, “Just to think,” she would say at such times, “that you no longer take drugs.”
What a mighty God we serve.
Heaven and earth adore Him.
Angels bow before Him.
He is faithful and true to His word.
What He says He is well able to perform.
Truly, if anyone, anyone at all, regardless of experiences, background, or race, is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come.
Things are different now and I’m no longer who I used to be.
Blessed be the Name of the Lord.
SECTION 2: YOU TOO CAN BE HEALED!
Maybe, you too are afflicted in one way or another. May be you are right now lying down on some hospital bed wondering where your help is going to come from.
Maybe, the experts have told you that your case is incurable and that there is nothing medical science can do for you.
Well, they maybe right in saying that medical science cannot do much for you at this point. And that is why this book is in your hands!
To link you with the greatest doctor of all times!!
His name is Dr. Jesus Christ!
He is the greatest physician and with Him, nothing is impossible.
With Him, no disease is incurable!
Please, realize that in Jesus Christ, no case is hopeless.
Yes, in Him we find newness and freshness.
In Him there is real and lasting freedom.
Don’t give up!
Believe in God’s word and His power to heal you of any afflictions.
Is it AIDS?
Is it cancer?
Is it diabetes?
Is it asthma?
The name doesn’t matter at all.
What matters is this – Jesus Christ has the power and wants to deliver you out of that condition.
I look back over the years of pain and I do realize that though satan afflicted me with painful infirmities, God allowed it because He knew He would turn it around into a testimony to His glory. He performed that miracle in my body sixteen years ago to bring glory to Himself. And that is the primary reason I’m writing this book – to bring glory to God.
I want the world to behold the power, the love, the mercy, and the glory of God.
He is great. Our God is awesome and He does great, mighty, and marvelous things. There is no one like Him, no other God besides Him.
Beyond that, however, I want you to know that if He did it for me, He can and will also do the same for you if you believe. This is also why this book is written – to duplicate my testimonies in countless other lives throughout the world and through all succeeding generations.
I have now traveled far and wide. I have conducted more crusades, healing and miracle services than I can remember. I have seen all manners of miracles happen through the name of Jesus Christ as I shared my testimony and spoke about the name of Jesus Christ.
Blind eyes have opened! The lame have walked! The deaf have heard!
I have seen cancer disappear!
I have watched in amazement as AIDS vanished from their victims!
I have seen diabetes lose its evil grip on its victims!
I have seen literally hundreds of healings and miracles!
And I am convinced of one thing, GOD HAS NOT CHANGED!
He’s still the same today as He’s always been.
I wrote this book to tell you that you too can be healed!
In the following section, I will outline to you steps from God’s word that will enable you tap into the healing power of Jesus Christ and experience freedom from all diseases and sicknesses.
SECTION 3: THE WORD WORKS
I believe you will understand me now when I say that 2Corinthians 5:17 has become a very significant and cardinal scripture in my life.
It’s like a part of me, as though those words flow in my blood stream. It has become a kind of anchor rock for my life.
And it’s a very powerful scripture – a miracle verse!
Read it again.
“If anyone is IN CHRIST, he is a NEW CREATION; the OLD has GONE, the NEW has COME!” – 2 Corinthians 5:17
I continually meditate on that scripture as well as the miraculous healing that God performed in my life. I can’t get over it. I can’t forget it. I’m forever grateful to God for delivering me. What amazes me the most, however, are the higher, and I believe, more enduring results of that miracle. Yes, I’m free from pain, I’m strong, healthy and so I can do my work more effectively and with greater joy. Yet the greatest benefits of that miracle are spiritual.
First of all, it has strengthened my faith in the word of God.
Many people seem to have no problem accepting whatever they read in the bible. They simply believe it is God speaking and that settles it. For others like me, however, it has not always been that easy. I must confess that as my mental faculties developed and my reasoning abilities increased, it became very difficult to accept what is written in the bible as the word of God.
Maybe this has happened to you.
Perhaps, it is still happening to you.
You might even be too ‘super-spiritual’ to admit it, so you repress it. But it is a very real feeling and satan can capitalize on it to haunt you with guilt. Yet, you must face it and allow God to minister His grace to you to overcome every form of intellectual doubt, everything that contradicts the knowledge of God in your life.
In spite of my very religious background, I found myself being assailed by doubts regarding the divinity of the Holy Scriptures. At such moments, however, I would reflect over the miraculous healing that occurred in my body and how the miracle took place. How could the mere reading of and acceptance of a simple statement in the pages of the bible produce such a wonderful transformation in my body? How could 2Corinthians 5:17 completely and permanently remove five terrible diseases which several doctors had labored to remove for seventeen years without any real success? What is it about that passage that cured diseases said to be incurable?
If that verse is true – and I know it is because its validity manifested in the total healing of my body – then every other statement of God’s Holy Scriptures is true. I can accept it. I can stake my entire life on the integrity of the word of God.
And so can you.
You can read any passage in the bible, and if you will accept it with all of your heart and act upon it, it will deliver its promises to you.
Daily, as I meditate on 2Corinthians 5:17 and the healing of my body, my faith in God’s word grows in leaps and bounds. The speed and completeness with which I accept scriptural statements has also been on the increase and consequently, I am experiencing manifestations of God’s promises in increasing measures in various aspects of my life.
I may not know you in person and we may never meet here on earth, but if I am allowed to give you just one message, I will tell you God’s Word is true. Believe it!
Don’t allow the philosophies and logic of men to rob you of the vibrant, life-giving, miracle-working power of the simple word of God. I feel like standing on the tallest skyscraper and screaming to the inhabitants of the earth that God’s word works! I wish I were standing in the pulpit of every Church, in the privacy of every home and telling all men and women everywhere, God’s word really, really works!
SECTION 4: HOW TO RECEIVE YOUR HEALING
1. Don’t focus on being healed.
Focus on the Healer – Jesus Christ. A lot of people make a god out of their condition, unwittingly worshipping it. This is very wrong. You are transformed by focus. You become what you behold. So rather than focusing on the pain and trying to remove it, focus on Jesus Christ, the Healer.
The LORD said to Moses, “Make a snake and put it up on a pole; anyone who is bitten can look at it and live. So Moses made a bronze snake and put it up on a pole. Then when anyone was bitten by a snake and looked at the bronze snake, he lived.
Just as Moses lifted up the snake in the desert, so the son of Man must be lifted up, that everyone who believes in him may have eternal life.
When the people were bitten by the snake, they were not to look at their symptoms or complain about how bad the pain was. They were not to look at Moses either. They were rather to look at the bronze serpent mounted in the desert – which symbolizes Jesus Christ in His work on the cross.
4Surely he took up our infirmities
and carried our sorrows,
yet we considered him stricken by God,
smitten by him, and afflicted.
5But he was pierced for our transgression,
he was crushed for our iniquities;
the punishment that brought us
peace was upon him,
and by his wounds we are healed.
– Isaiah 51: 4,5.
Jesus Christ is the Healer.
So remove your focus from the pain and the sickness. Focus it on the Lord Jesus Christ. Believe in Him and trust that He has power and that He is willing to heal you. And He will.
2. Mind your atmosphere.
Surround yourself with a positive environment.
(i) Surround yourself with people who believe in miracles, who are full of faith, and who have a positive mind.
Often times, people’s conditions are worsened and many have eventually died as a result of pessimistic doctors and medical personnel. I don’t care how good or skillful a doctor is, if he or she is not positive minded, look for another if you can afford it.
The same applies to relations, and any other person for that matter. If they do not believe in a bright future for you, if they are confessing doom and death, then politely request them to stay away until you recover!
(ii) Surround yourself with pictures, and words, which build your faith.
You become what you behold.
Get pictures that represent and express positive faith. Hang it in the walls around you. Get scripture verses on healing and memorize them and keep confessing them to yourself every now and then. (I included some in No. 4 below. Memorize them and confess them daily.)
(iii) Surround yourself with books, tapes, and teachings on faith and healing.
This includes testimonies from magazines and other writings of men of God. It may not necessarily be on the subject of healing, but if must be on faith building subjects. It will also be good to get worship and praise tapes and be listening to them. All of these create a positive atmosphere that is conducive for healing and speedy recovery.
3. Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ as your Lord and Personal Saviour.
Healing is one of the benefits of salvation and the new birth.
If you haven’t consciously surrendered your life to Jesus Christ and submitted to His Lordship over you, then follow the outlined steps below.
Repent of your sins.
21I have declared to both Jews and Greeks that they must turn to God in repentance and have faith in our Lord Jesus.
Believe in the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
30And many other signs truly did Jesus in the presence of his disciples, which are not written in this book:
31But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name.
31And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.
Surrender your life totally to Jesus Christ.
21Submit to God and be at peace with him; in this way prosperity will come to you.
9That if you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.
10For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved.
11As the Scripture says, “Anyone who trusts in him will never be put to shame.”
12For there is no difference between Jew and Gentile – the same Lord is Lord of all and richly blesses all who call on him,
13for, “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”
Be baptized in water into the name of Jesus Christ.
38Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.
Live in accordance with His word and commands.
19“So then, King Agrippa, I was not disobedient to the vision from heaven.
20First to those in Damascus, then to those in Jerusalem and in all Judea, and to the Gentiles also, I preached that they should repent and turn to God and prove their repentance by their deeds.
If you have met these conditions, Jesus Christ is the Lord of your life.
If not, then make sure you do it immediately.
4. Meditate on these promises of God.
He said, “If you listen carefully to the voice of the LORD your God and do what is right in his eyes, if you pay attention to his commands and keep all his decrees, I will not bring on you any of the diseases I brought on the Egyptians, for I am the LORD, who heals you.”
2 Kings 20:5
This is what the LORD, the God of your father David, says: I have heard your prayer and seen your tears; I will heal you.
Who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases.
He heals the broken hearted and binds up their wounds.
But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.
Then your light will break forth like the dawn, and your healing will quickly appear; then your righteousness will go before you, and the glory of the LORD will be your rear guard.
Heal me, O LORD, and I will be healed; save me and I will be saved, for you are the one I praise.
Jeremiah 30: 27
‘But I will restore you to health and heal your wounds,’ declares the LORD
But for you who revere my name, the sun of righteousness will rise with healing in its wings. And you will go out and leap like calves released from the stall.
III John 1:2:
Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth
5. Make these confessions daily.
By His wounds, I AM HEALED!
I shall not die. I shall live to declare the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living!
6. Appreciate God for what blessings you already have in your life.
I believe that a grateful heart and a grateful mouth is one of the most powerful means of unlocking and releasing God’s healing into our lives.
