Healing from Cancer
Is anything too difficult for God? (Genesis 18:14, Jeremiah 32:17-27) He watches over his word to perform it, and nothing shall be impossible for him. (Jer. 1:12, Luke 1:37) When God makes a promise to us, he is telling us how it is, and we have to believe him all the way. We must renew our minds and walk this out in faith. Read these scriptural affirmations before continuing:I purpose to Love the Lord with all my heart, mind, and strength.
I bless those who curse me and pray for those who mistreat me. I bless and do not curse.
Luke 6:28, Romans 12:14
I count myself dead to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus.
I present myself to God as one who has been brought from death to life.
I present my body and all its parts to God as instruments of righteousness.
I sow to my spirit and no longer sow to my flesh.
I know that God saved me according to his mercy at the cross, and it’s not my righteous deeds. I am called to inherit eternal life.
I am a jar of clay and God’s treasure is inside of me. God called me to reveal the life of Jesus in my mortal body. I am called to walk in thanksgiving despite the trials of life and the any afflictions.
2 Corinthians 4:6Though my outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day. For my light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for me a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory, While I look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen; for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.
2 Corinthians 4:7-18
I am an heir with Christ. His spirit testifies with my spirit that I am God’s child. My present sufferings are not comparable to the glory that will be revealed in me.
I will obey the leading of the Holy Spirit for the care of my body. I may have to change what I eat, my lifestyle, how I take care of myself. I may have to change my spiritual and physical disciplines! God loves me. Jesus Christ is Lord! I will not grumble or complain! And I will trust in him and rest in him knowing he is with me through this, working his will and good pleasure.
Philippians 2:13I will be thankful in everything for this is the will of God. I will humble myself, and cast all my worries, cares, and anxieties on the Lord because he cares for me!
1 Thessalonians 5:18, 1 Peter 5:7
Role of Medicine in healing
Doctors trained in medical science are responsible to work with their patients to decide on a course of treatment for cancer. This may include combinations of surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, immunotherapy, or other courses of treatment. God can and will use medicine and medical science to achieve his purpose.
Search the web for testimonies where God instructed believers to proceed with traditional treatments. You may see they obtained healing, not leaving out the most important element – seeking God faithfully throughout their illness, expecting to be healed. Seek the support and testimony of others to build your faith.Jesus is the door; by Jesus if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture. The thief cometh not but to steal and to kill and to destroy. Jesus is come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous. He that committeth sin is of the devil, for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil. Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.
1 John 3:7-9
In any disease, it may not be the body alone needing healing. Cancer can be a symptom of spiritual disease afflicting the body. The soul/mind and body can be bound by Satan through sin, but it can be turned for the glory of God and the salvation of your soul. Repent! Change your mind and direction. Come back to the things of God.
Perhaps your child is stricken. Parents, seek the Lord because you are the spiritual covering for your children. What is God saying to you? What will God accomplish through all of this? I pray you look hopefully and expectantly on God and elevate him and his promises above the appearance of disease!
What course of action is God giving you? Please don’t get caught up in beliefs which would deny you a medical course of action. There are testimonies where God clearly instructed believers to use doctors and medicine and were subsequently healed.Hear the Word of God. Is God giving you a specific word about your present situation? The reward of faith is obeying that word, seeing it by faith until it comes. Your healing may be an issue where you just need to get right with God. You might pray, command, and stand until you are worn out but that will not change your situation until the purpose of God is accomplished.
Others have sought out the prayer of agreement from their brothers and sisters and got miraculous results combined with medical treatment. They did it in faith, in obedience, in expectation before God and were rewarded.
God is eager to forgive (Psalm 83) and is merciful and gracious, able to forgive all sins and heal all disease (Psalm 103). It’s time to clean up and restore order! Come to him in faith and let him establish the life of Jesus in you and your family. Forgive those who have offended you. If you have hidden sins and iniquities, confess them. If you want to hold onto them, God will let you, but God is saying humble yourself and come to Him seeking his face.
Are you seeking healing from Cancer? Let’s make some renunciations and confessions:
I renounce all medical and scientific risk factors for cancer
I renounce all ungodly inheritance including diseases, infirmities, and cancers of all kinds
I renounce the sins of the forefathers and I forgive my parents, grandparents, and ancestors for their choices which may have influenced me or affected me in any way
I renounce all personal choices, activities or substances (name them if they come to mind) that may have opened the door to cancer and any other syndrome or diseaseI confess the sins of my ancestors and forgive my ancestors for opening the door to any ungodly inheritance including cancer, and I trust God to forgive me and heal my blood line.
I confess that exposure to certain substances may have opened the door to cancer, but I serve the God who heals. I forgive anybody including companies or governments who knowingly or unknowingly exposed me and others to harmful or cancer-causing substances.
I bless all doctors, all medical professionals and any treatments they have prescribed or administered. I bless the very drugs to their intended purposes, and I trust the Lord to give me life and sustain me as I undergo treatment.
I am sorry for not walking in Godly wisdom for the care of my earthly vessel my body. I may be reaping what I have sowed, but I am asking forgiveness and I’m willing to make a change. I choose life, not just in word but in action.
I am facing a trial, but I choose to submit to God and seek him faithfully. I am willing to repent, forgive, submit, and surrender. I will agree with my adversary quickly and always appeal to the judge who is merciful. The blood of Jesus cleanses me from all sin. I will trust God through this. I will not hear the voice of fear or accusation. I will not be turned aside but will meditate on His word and stand in faith on His word. I am thankful for all those who are praying for me. I do not forget my Lord Jesus Christ who lives forever and is able to save completely all those who draw near to God through him!
Most importantly of all, I again forgive EVERYBODY and I choose to walk it out daily in releasing them to God. I let go of all bitterness, offenses, hatred towards others, and hatred towards self. I choose to see myself as God sees me and I trust him to reveal that to me. I forgive myself and choose to receive God’s forgiveness through the blood of Jesus Christ!
Praying with the faith of God – Withering the fig tree
Jesus taught some keys of prayer in Mark 11:
And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God. For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith. Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive [them], and ye shall have [them]. And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against any: that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses. But if ye do not forgive, neither will your Father which is in heaven forgive your trespasses.
And the Apostle John in 1 John Chapter 5:
And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us: And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him.
Bringing that out into key points:
Have faith in God (what is His word to you, whose word do you stand on, He cannot lie)
Command it (stand on His word by faith)
Do not doubt (the double minded should not expect to receive)
Whatsoever things you desire (you must want your healing)
What you say shall come to pass (his word does not return void)
Believe that you receive it (you already have it by faith)
And you shall have it (it’s on its way. rest in the Lord. seek the Lord. God knows your need)
Forgive everybody else, release them completely! (if you want to be loosed from your sin, you must loose others)
Have confidence in God
Ask according to his will
God hears our prayers
We have the petitions we desired
It’s not up to you. It’s about God fulfilling his word. God is working out your salvation. You be faithful to pray.
Do not be anxious about anything. Instead, in every situation, through prayer and petition with thanksgiving, tell your requests to God. And the peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.
Command healing from cancer!
Will you speak to your mountain? You may be praying for yourself or someone else. Speak directly to cancer and infirmity. This is the method of ministering healing in Jesus name. You are not praying to God, but rather exercising your faith in God:
Cancer, I rebuke you in Jesus name! Infirmity come out in Jesus name!Spirit of cancer, you are bound! Come out now and GO NOW to the place Jesus has appointed!
Tumors, I curse you at the roots, shrivel up and die in Jesus name! Come Out!
Body obey the will of God! Everything that is out of order come to order in Jesus name! Be straightened in Jesus name!
In Jesus name I command strength to the immune system. I remove all impairment to the immune system. Immunity be restored to normal function. Destroy and consume all threats in this body including cancer!
In Jesus name I replace all diseased tissue with normal tissue! I bless the body through and through!
All corruption and death come out! I restore life and Godly order to this vessel in Jesus name! Be healed in Jesus name!
When Giving up is not giving up – Surrender the matter to God!
Have you obeyed God already in matters of forgiveness? Is your mind renewed? One aspect of repentance is relinquishing self-will and putting the matter fully in God’s hands. Faith puts God as in control as we take our hands off the matter and choose to trust and obey Him. The frustrated may strive and grasp in prayer for their need or their healing, but God wants them to lay it down and surrender their matters before God, even as Jesus in the garden.
As Catherine Marshall states, “What is the spiritual law implicit in this Prayer of Relinquishment? Fear is like a screen erected between us and God, so that his power cannot get through to us. So, how does one get rid of fear?… At such times, every emotion, every passion, is tied up in the dread that what we fear is about to come upon us. Obviously, only drastic measures can deal with such a gigantic fear and the demanding spirit that usually goes along with it. Trying to deal with it by repeating faith affirmations is not drastic enough.” (Catherine Marshall, Guideposts, http://www.guideposts.org/faith-and-prayer/prayer-stories/the-prayer-of-relinquishment
Catherine prayed for months for healing from a lung condition but progressively declined in health. It was not until she relinquished the matter to God did she receive healing.
