When I was in China, I was sitting on a metal chair playing a video game when the telephone rang. I turned quickly and bumped my elbow against the steel chair. The pain was intense because I hit the funny bone, but I thought the problem would go away soon. The initial discomfort went away but there was a painful tingling feeling that got worse as the days went by. With my elbow still bothering me, I went to a conference in Hong Kong about the Holy Spirit. There, someone was praying for the healing of the people in the audience. I thought it was nice that people were praying, but I didn’t think it had anything to do with my problem. Suddenly, I realized the tingling that had been constant in my elbow was gone. My elbow was healed and the tingling never came back.
Often people are healed but they don’t stay healed. There are many different possible reasons for this.
Dave, a friend of mine told me about something that happened to him. He began coughing up blood. It was disturbing to him and he was a bit fearful so he got on the Internet to find out what the problem could be. He began praying and the coughing went away and he didn’t spit up any more blood. But the next day he began coughing again and a little bit of blood came up. But he said out loud “In Jesus name I am healed I will not accept defeat in this matter, I know I am healed.” But he began to feel a little fearful again, so he called his pastor. His pastor has seen many miraculous healings and said he would pray for Dave, but he felt he should see a doctor. Dave believed he was already healed and did not want to see a doctor. As the pastor prayed for him over the phone that day felt the anointing of the Holy Spirit. The fear was completely gone now, and he knew he was completely healed. Later on that day he coughed up a tiny bit of blood and again he said “I won’t accept this Jesus has healed me!” The next day the problem was completely gone and he hasn’t had a problem since.
