Tonsils? What tonsils?
Tonsils? What tonsils?
by Priscilla Gruendler
In November of 2019, I went for a wellness check-up. I usually ask my doctor if her assistant could clean my ears. However, this time she told me no because she was behind on her schedule and that I would need to see my ENT.
I put off going to the ENT until January of 2020. When the doctor finished cleaning my ears, he said, “Open your mouth and say, ‘Ahhhh!’” He then said, “Your tonsils are so swollen you need to have surgery ASAP!” He proceeded to ask me if I live with anyone and I said, “No”. “Your tonsils are so swollen that you could suffocate and die, and you wouldn’t have anyone to help you. We need to schedule you for surgery ASAP,” he said.
I came into work the following week and showed my tonsils to Nancy, an RN who works with me at the ministry. She has worked with doctors who remove tonsils and is quite aware of what tonsils should look like. Well, she was very shocked when she looked into my mouth. Nancy agreeing with my ENT said, “You need to get them removed immediately.” So, I went ahead and did the pre-op requirements. I called the doctor’s office many times, leaving messages on each call. However, I heard nothing back!
I was also told that once I had the surgery, I would have a month-long recovery period because of my young age of 77. I informed them that I was scheduled to move to Maricopa from Goodyear, AZ on the 29th of February. I was not supposed to be packing boxes and lifting for a month after having surgery. Because of the move, I had to get a new insurance card and new doctors. February 29th came and I still had no word from my ENT office.
Meanwhile at work, our team began taking communion at least twice a day. I always decreed the following scripture out loud:
“…and when he had given thanks, he broke it, and said, ‘This is my
body, which is for you. Do this in remembrance of me.’”
1 Corinthians 11:24 (ESV)
Then I said the meaning of the word “body”, which is sozo in the Greek, meaning, “to save, keep safe and sound, to rescue from danger or destruction, to save a suffering one (from perishing), i.e. one suffering from disease, to make well, heal, restore to health.” (G4982)
I decreed my healing every time I took communion as I spoke the meaning above out loud.
Then in May, I was sitting at my desk at the office and the Holy Spirit said to me, “Go to the bathroom and look at your tonsils.”
I obeyed and went to look at my tonsils that had been pretty nasty looking. Not only were they not nasty looking any more, but there were NO tonsils!
So, I went running out to the first staff member I saw and said, “Do you know what tonsils look like? She said, “Yes, my 12-year-old grandson just had his taken out.”
“OK, then see if you can see mine” I said.
“There is nothing there!” She exclaimed.
I asked our RN, Nancy, to come in the next day and she confirmed that I had no tonsils!
Well, I just happened to have a dentist appointment the following day and I asked the dentist, “Do you see my tonsils?” He said, “Your left one is completely gone and right one is normal.”
“There is no fear in
love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in
1 John 4:18 (NKJV)
The above scripture was given to me by the Lord when I had a family member who had a spirit of alcohol addiction to the point of death. This spirit afflicted him many, many, times over a long 10-year period.
During this process, not one time did I have those thoughts of fear that I would die in my sleep came to my mind, because I know God’s word is exactly as He says it is; I know that we have power in our tongue to speak life (or death) into our bodies. (Proverbs 18:21). Below are more scriptures I use often:
“Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and
bringing into captivity every thought
to the obedience of Christ.”
2 Corinthians 10:5 (KJV)
anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with
thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of
God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds
through Christ Jesus. Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever
things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever
things are lovely, whatever things are of good report if there is any virtue
and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things.”
Philippians 4:6-8 NKJV
with man is possible with GOD.”
Matthew 19:26 (ESV)
What healing do you need today? I highly recommend that you listen to Katie’s teachings, take communion, and begin decreeing the Word of God over yourself. Be healed, like me!
When you get your healing, we would love to hear your testimony.
