You say that you are a believer. You say that you love the Lord with all your heart. You say that you believe in healing. You even say that by His stripes you were healed.
However you are still in pain or discomfort and desperately seeking relief. But you are not willing to wait on the Lord and exercise what you already have, to receive and manifest it, either because you don’t know how or are in unbelief.
So rather than trusting the Lord for His deliverance and against your better judgement you wavered and went to the doctor anyway, to be treated by them for relief of your symptoms. Or to go through with that surgery, radiation or chemo therapy or some other treatment that they prescribed for you to take.
Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience. But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing. — If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord. James 1:3-7
So you basically believed their evil report that you have what they claim you have rather than believing the report of the Lord that “by His stripes you were healed.” (Isaiah 53:5, Matthew 8:17, 1 Peter 2:24).
You have willingly believed their evil report that their treatment will cure you and relieve of your symptoms. You willingly believed their evil report that they can heal you and make you better, or at least feel better.
They sound so confident of themselves. Like the blind leading the blind, they sound so convincing selling you on their report with everything they have because they are devoid of true knowledge and have nothing else to offer and, in reality, are spiritually broke.
They only allow questions as to procedure but will not tolerate dissent or second guessing of their highly fallible and many times fake, false and often fatal diagnosis and prescribed treatments with all physical scans and diagnostics to back them up and rub your nose in it making you question everything and willingly surrender to them in fear, anxiety and despair.
The enemy is not called the prince of the power of the air for nothing and has been proven to often manipulate the outcomes of these so-called tests as long as he has your consent which you gave him when you discounted the report of the Lord and were willing to believe his evil report instead. Yes, you are being lied to by the father of lies. Surprised? Well, you shouldn’t be. What did you expect if you are so willingly gullible to believe his evil reports over the good report of the Lord his arch enemy.
In other words, they will not pray for you but prey on you as fair game because you voluntarily walked into their office consenting to their ungodly advice. Again willingly.
This is called contracting. Whether verbal or written, according to the Constitution, “The right to contract shall not be impaired.”, even to your own hurt. This is how they get away with it with no fear of repercussion or prosecution. Because you were not forced or mandated to come to them — you volunteered and agreed with them. In other words, you threw your hat into the ring with them and took part in their schemes.
They have on a white coat with a stethoscope draped around their neck to look professional and to intimidate you that their judgments are the final authority and not to be questioned in any way. They have initials behind their name that took them years of study and hundreds of thousands of dollars to achieve. Who are you to dare question them?
You think for a moment; could they be motivated by the money they will make from this? But you dismiss it right away because you do not want to believe that someone in such an ‘honorable’ profession would be motivated by money in order to deceive you.
They speak sternly and though they may appear civilized on the surface, they are intimidating and bullying you into their methods and will denigrate you if you dare to disagree.
But you only got worse.
Now you are in even more pain and discomfort and have new side effects you did not have before. Now you are on more medication (Pharmakeia which literally means witchcraft) and they even prescribed you to have more treatment or even more surgery. They did not tell you the whole truth and gradually turn you into a lifer.
You are very disappointed to discover that their reports were not true after all. Their proposed magic tricks did not work for you. More than this, you are upset with yourself for even listening to them. They lied to you. They deceived you. But you willingly swallowed their lies.
Finally they will kick you out and send you home to die because they came to the end of their remedies and you are now worse off than when you stared.
Oh, you may experience some relief on the way and claim that God healed you through the doctors, but this is not true because it is not devine healing.
About a year ago a woman sent me a prayer request with all of her symptoms. She joined us on one of our online training sessions and declared to the group that God had miraculously healed her from cancer through the doctors. She must have forgotten that she had sent her prayer request which stated that she was on a plethora of medications. When I challenged her she got very defensive. I did not want to make a scene or call her out to the group so I simply told her: “You may believe that you were healed by doctors but please do not call it divine healing because it is not.”
There is an old saying that says:
It is easier to deceive someone then it is to convince them that they have been deceived – Mark Twain
It is called dissonance. This is the opposite of harmony. You do not want to believe that you have been deceived so it does not harmonize with the truth or your belief that you cannot be deceived so you do not want to believe it. You believe after all that you are smarter than that. You are educated. You have knowledge. You are sophisticated. How could they possible pull the wool over your eyes? This is also know as the pride of life.
For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. 1 John 2:16
The word pride is only mentioned 2 times in the NT, here and James 4:16. According to Strong’s, it means the following:
AV (2) – boasting 1, pride 1;
- empty, braggart talk
- an insolent and empty assurance, which trusts in its own power and resources and shamefully despises and violates divine laws and human rights
- an impious and empty presumption which trusts in the stability of earthy things
Doctors do this all the time. As if they know more than God Himself, acting as gods to deceive you and decide your fate and in the meantime make the most money off of you and your insurance company that they can.
COI or Conflict Of Interest perhaps? Just like if a judge rules on your court case while having a vested monetary interest in the outcome of your case which is considered an ethics violation when caught.
Doctors no longer honor their Hippocratic Oath to “Do no harm”. They have all cashed that in a long time ago for a Hypocritic Oath which they abide by for every patient to line their pockets. Sure there are some exceptions like doctor’s who no longer accept insurance money but only cash to not have to jump through their hoops, but these are far and few between. Most of them are now on the take to make their Mercedes payments and you are their willing victim if you go along with their schemes. Like Stockholm syndrome.
A woman I know always takes her husband with her to take their homeschooled kids for their “required physicals” to stay off the radar for CPS, because it is always a fight to keep them unvaccinated. The nurses are always surprised that their kids have no medical issues whatsoever. But they pull up their noses the minute they give them the reason being “No vaccines”.
You see a doctor makes better than 2/3 of their income from vaccine injections. This right here is a huge COI. Of course it has now come out that vaccines are not at all what they claim to be, since to date, not one safety study has ever been performed on any vaccine. Most vaccines create the very disease they claim to eradicate. It was all just rubber stamped by the FDA who is completely in bed with the pharmaceutical industry.
I get many prayer requests and calls for prayer from people whom the doctors gave up on and sent them home to die. “Well, the doctors couldn’t do anything for me anymore so Jesus is my only hope now.” No, Jesus has become your hope of last resort, not your first resort.
One of our team members asked if I would come and pray for Anthony who the doctors had abandoned with fourth stage cancer and sent him home to die. He was only 24 years old. He was laying on the couch when we came in because he could not get up. We prayed and after an hour he was standing on his feet praising the Lord with his hands raised to the sky. A week later I got a report that he had gained 17 pounds. It was a great report.
Then a month and a half later, she called and asked if I could come to the hospital to pray for Anthony again. “What? He was completely healed, What happened?” I asked. She explained that he went to the doctor and got a completely clean bill of health which they could not explain but instead recommended that he finish his treatments just to be sure it would not come back.
He did not want to but his wife pushed him to do it. He relented and they killed him with their “finishing” treatments. His wife’s fear and believing the evil report and not trusting the report of the Lord, is really what killed him.
Did she want to kill him? Of course not! She only wanted to secure his healing. But she gave in to the the spirit of fear which opened the door to the enemy taking full advantage. Do you see the enemy and his lies behind this scheme? If he and his wife had only trusted Jesus who had already totally healed him, he would have lived and not died.
Curry Blake has an excellent allegory of you taking your child to the playground and sitting down on a bench to watch them play. All of a sudden they fall off the swing and start crying and are running towards you and you get off the bench and kneel down to collect them in your arms to comfort them. But your child runs right past you into the arms of a total stranger with a white coat and a stethoscope. How would this make you feel as a parent if this happened to you?
Now put this into perspective with you running right past your heavenly Father and His provision of healing by the stripes of Jesus and into the arms of a non-believing stranger in a white coat who claims they can heal you when they are merely practicing on you with no knowledge of how sickness originates because it is always an attack from the enemy that they have no clue about and are only trained in pharmaceuticals (witchcraft – so they are basically witch doctors).
The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. John 10:10
Now how do you think that makes your heavenly Father feel? Disappointed to say the least when He specially sent His only begotten Son 2,000 years ago as your provision and payment for all of your sins and for all of your healing. But you have free will to choose for or against Him.
Nevertheless He will not condemn you for your lack of faith in Jesus’ payment for your healing which is also in the atonement. You just won’t receive your healing.
So it is you and not Him who is at fault for not receiving your healing. This does not mean that God is not giving it since He has already given it in Jesus. You are just not taking it (receiving means taking in the Greek). But only if you believe it for we walk by faith and not by sight (2 Corinthians 5:7).
If I want to give a $100 bill and hold it out to you, There is no way that you are going to receive it if you don’t take it from me. Jesus is holding out the healing He has accomplished by taking the stripes on His back as payment for your healing every day and all day long. But if you don’t take it as being yours, you will never receive it. (Read Mark 11:24).
Personally, I have not been to a doctor or any medical practitioner in over 25 years other than to donate blood. The last doctor I went to claimed he was a Christian and was very active in the non-denominational (read Baptist) church we both attended at the time. Yet he did not pray with me but took my BP and said it was elevated (EBP or Elevated Blood Pressure is NOT high blood pressure) and prescribed me blood pressure medication.
After taking it for a few days, The Lord convicted me that this was not right and not His will for me. So I dumped the rest and never went back to him again. 25 years later, I am still here and have not had one EBP related symptom ever. I did however check my blood pressure for about a year afterwards and if I tested it long enough, it would be elevated at first but then would gradually come down to the normal range. So the Lord convicted me again, why did I trust this machine and not trust Him? So I stopped testing altogether and only trusted Him and Jesus’ stripes that I am already healed. It is finished. It is done.
So now if I am attacked in any way, I run to Doctor Jesus, The Great Physician for all my needs and He gives me the balm of Gilead which is Jesus Himself.
Is there no balm in Gilead; is there no physician there? why then is not the health of the daughter of my people recovered? Jeremiah 8:22
You are free to believe Him for your healing or not, just like you are free to believe Him for your salvation or not. They are both received the same way. By faith. Not by unbelief. The choice is yours.
Now, I need to tell you that if you cannot get the job done yourself, if your faith is not there yet, submit yourself to a disciple who can. Swallow your pride so they can set you free. Then keep pursuing the Lord and His word and don’t stop until you’ve got it. You will know you’ve got it when you pray for others and see them be healed right in front of your eyes. It’s called the working of miracles. It is also the law of sowing and reaping. You sow healing to others and you will bountifully reap healing for others and for your self as well.
You can start here with the basics of ministering healing:
I cannot tell you to not seek the physicians. That is completely your decision and yours alone. But remember King Asa and that “the heart of Asa was perfect all his days.” 2 Chronicles 15:17. This means that he obeyed God all his life until rebellion arose in his heart and he made 4 big mistakes:
- He relied on the king of Aram (Syria) rather than on YHWH His God,
- Mistreating God’s prophet and putting him in prison and,
- Oppressing his people.
But his 4th and biggest sin was that when he was diseased in his feet, he did not seek the Lord but sought the physicians for his healing.
And Asa in the thirty and ninth year of his reign was diseased in his feet, until his disease was exceeding great: yet in his disease he sought not to the LORD, but to the physicians. 2 Chronicles 16:12
Seeking the physicians and not the Lord is what killed him. Most people would be better off today if they had not gone to a doctor in the first place but trusted God for their healing instead.
Most people who do not get results for their own healing are the ones who watch television. It is not called programming for nothing. Just the endless barrage of pharmaceutical commercials alone is enough to fill them with fear and will turn anyone into an unbeliever in divine healing. Just like all the medical shows and movies always push an ungodly, antichrist narrative against divine healing to promote their pharmaceutical remedies instead.
Some people actually believe that God uses doctors to heal. Wrong! Show me one place in scripture where God used a doctor or a physician to heal anyone. You will not find any.
Even Luke, the beloved physician as Paul called him, never mentions at any time that he continued practicing medicine nor is their any example of this mentioned. And he wrote both the gospel of Luke and the book of Acts. Now why in heaven’s name would he use pharmakeia (witchcraft – which is forbidden – it is even translated as sorceries) when he had the authority of Jesus name and the power of the Holy Spirit to heal anyone from every illness and disease?
I have not sought any physician for over 25 years now. Why would I, if they are only practicing on people like guinea pigs, only give you evil reports that contradict the report of the Lord when I can get my full and complete healing direct from God according to the report of the Lord?
By refusing to seek the physicians, I have experienced 2 major healings directly from God with no doctors in between, the testimonies of which are here:

All very true and insightful. How to Heal the Sick download by Charles and Frances Hunter that you made available describes a scenario she herself went through in having to go to the doctor in Ch 13. But the Doctor was her last resort, not Jesus.
Thank you, Julia.
Amen from a repentant physician. See https://thelordiswithus.com/2018/07/30/gods-way-of-healing-and-deliverance-vs-administering-pharmaceuticals/ . Love to you dear brother in Christ.
Thank you, Deanna. Love to you too!
