I am still on the topic of people dying before their time. I promised last week that I would share with you an example of someone that we fought for. You may have already heard the testimony, but I’d like to repeat it again. Georgia Marshall is one of my prayer generals. She has been with me on my intercessory team for many years. She’s one of the most powerful women of God I’ve ever met and she has been diagnosed with chronic lymphoma leukemia (CLL). One lung was completely impacted by CLL, and the other lung was filled with fungus. Georgia went to expert after expert, until the sixth doctor finally figured out what she had. They had to drill a hole in her side and go into her lung to find out what it was. She developed huge lumps on her neck from this disease, and she was dying.
Every day for 60 or more days someone from my team, either myself or my other generals, (Roxie Priscilla or Tsion) soaked her soul. We simply released the revelation on soul healing by putting the blood from the cross on her sins and traumas, and by applying the resurrection power (Dunamis), on her soul. Daily God would show us a different wound on her soul that was allowing CLL to be there.
People that are dying of chronic diseases could have hundreds of wounds in their soul that are allowing diseases to afflict them. People pray and pray for them, but they are not praying for their souls. They’re praying for their physical bodies to be healed. We must begin praying for people’s souls, because people are dying out of God’s time, due to wounds in their souls. This is what we did every day. We prayed for her soul to be healed, so that she would prosper and be in health even as her soul is prospered.
The doctor told her, “We want to start treatment.” (Which is what Georgia had been avoiding.)
When they administered her very first dose of treatment, she had a bad reaction! There was too much Benadryl in the mixture, and as soon as they began the treatment they had to stop it. So, she never received treatment, but when she went home, because we had been faithful to continue to contend for the healing of her soul, suddenly the lumps in her neck began to disappear. Then she began gaining weight because she was able to eat. Next, the pain started leaving and they took her off of oxygen because she could now breathe. She was no longer hacking and coughing up stuff because what was in her lungs was dying. She was being prospered in her health even as her soul is prospered.
How do we heal these wounds that are killing people before their time? Simply two things, the blood from the cross of Jesus Christ, and a power called Dunamis that comes through the resurrection, because sin and trauma make wounds on your soul.
The first step you need to take to get these wounds healed is to plead the blood. You need to repent and forgive people that you’re angry with. You also need to repent for your ancestors because wounds can be passed down through the generations. The blood is for the sin, and you need to apply it, and that blood will wash away the sin that wounded you. Many time we do not even realize that sin and trauma have left wounds on our soul, which is why we need the blood. What would we do without the cross of Jesus Christ? The blood has a specific job, which is for the washing away of sin. Whenever you read about the blood in the Bible, the Old Testament and the New Testament, it always refers to the shedding of blood for the atonement or the washing of sin, but sin and trauma have made wounds on our soul. There is a special power for healing those wounds and the good news is that power is still Christ!
This power, called Dunamis, comes from Christs’ resurrection. There are many Scriptures that connect Dunamis with the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Paul says in Philippians 3:10 (KJV) “That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection…” That word “power” is the word “Dunamis.” (Strong’s G1411 dynamis) It’s saying there’s a power called Dunamis that comes from the resurrection. Romans 1:3-4 (KJV) “Concerning his Son Jesus Christ our Lord, which was made the seed of David according to the flesh; and declared to be the Son of God with power, according to the spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead…” and again in 1 Corinthians 6:14 (KJV), “And God hath both raised up the Lord, and will also raise up us by his own power…” Again, “power” in those verses is the Greek word “Dunamis,” and it comes to us through the resurrection of Christ and actually raises us up!
I have much more to tell you about this amazing gift called Dunamis, but alas, once again I am out of space and time! Tune in next week (same Bat time, same Bat channel…am I showing my age?)! You will not want to miss out on learning about this gift of the Holy Spirit!
