Brother Raj's Testimony on Healing

Beloved brothers and sisters, it is with great joy that I write onto you once again about the wonders God has done in my life. I remember so well the time one of my friends was telling me how he thought he had caught an incurable disease. Stressed and depressed, he was watching TBN channel all day long hoping that God would heal him of something he was not even sure of. Did I mention that he was my drinking and partying buddy? I wanted to help him but as a matter of fact, he helped me instead to know the one and true living God, Jesus Christ.

I loved reading books. Books were very expensive in those days and were treated with great respect and care regardless of what type of book it was. My friend gave me a Good News Bible and advised me to read it like a story book. I thought well what harm reading a religious book can do, I might learn some good stuff. On my friend’s advice, I started reading from the Gospels. Before I proceed, I want to take this opportunity to thanks God for the people and ministries which distribute the Bible for free all around the word.

I also want to mention that I had no prior knowledge of the Bible or its teachings whatsoever. In those days I used to get frequent headaches. These were not normal headaches but carried symptoms that of migraines. Pain killers did not seem to work. I did not like going to the doctor because the health centers were very crowded and took a while before someone would see me. One day while doing work, I hurt my left arm but I did not feel much pain until the next morning. The pain was too much for me to bear. I took some pain relievers but did not help as much. While I was taking my shower to go to work, I remembered reading in the Gospel of John that Jesus said if you ask anything in His name, He will do it for you. Another important thing I remembered was that I had to believe in Him and receive my healing before I would see the miracle. Who knew, this day would change my life forever.

My friends I remember very well praying to Jesus and seeking healing. I told Jesus what His word said and I believed it. It is amazing how desperate we can get when we are in need. It seems we would believe in anything. Thank God I did not believe just in anything but in the wonderful name of Jesus. As I prayed, tears flowed out of my eyes and I literally felt the spirit of the Lord go right through the arm that was paining. The area that was paining suddenly heated up and I could feel the pain going away. In less than a minute, the entire pain was gone. Thank God for His healing power in these days. The Bible says that Jesus Christ never changes; He is the same yesterday, today and forever.

Often times when I got headaches, I would often pray for Jesus to deliver me and instantly I would feel His presence come all over my head like heat and the pain would be gone. Sometimes the pain will not go away and I knew that I had to check my life and ask God to forgive me for known and unknown sins. Finally one day, I got so frustrated of headaches, I told God to please take it away once and for all and in His mercy and love, He did. I cried a lot that day, not from the pain but because the Lord healed me permanently. Yes my friends, the frequent headaches disappeared. I will not lie to anyone, once in a while I do get a headache but not like I used to. The Lord is still healing His people free of charge. There is so much power in His blood. It not only cleanses our sins but also heals us. The Bible says in Isaiah 53:5

But he was pierced for our transgressions,
    he was crushed for our iniquities; 
the punishment that brought us peace was on him,
    and by his wounds we are healed.

My friends, God still heals. I stand today as a witness to His healing power. I encourage you to put your faith in Him and He will surely deliver you. Sometimes there are hindrances to our healing. Check your lifestyle and make sure that you are living a life pleasing to the Lord. Remember holy living requires effort, time and obedience. The Bible says: 

Be Holy for He Is Holy. 

Brethren, there are many more miracles and healing I have seen in my life and in other people’s lives, but time permits me only to share this much with you for right now. 

God bless you all.
