Song-Eli Eli Lama Sabachthani (A True Story In my Life!)
I remember the overwhelming sorrow and fear and emotion That I felt when the Doctor told me I had cancer. I called my wife from the Hospital and we just started weeping. We just kept weeping. My son Caleb was just born, I had plans for him, but they seemed to be crushed. All the thoughts were overwhelming. I began to pray like never before. I searched the Scriptures for answers, but was being attacked daily with thoughts that I was going to die. As I read the Words Of Jesus I Saw That He was my Healer! But I also saw my sin. I wanted to make sure my life was right so I could come to Jesus For Help. I was in the youth ministry and prison ministry at the time. Yet I struggled with worldly things.
As I read the Word I began to repent and I went before the Elders of Church, and I also stood publically before the church and confessed my struggles.(1 John 1:8-10) I then ask the Elders of the church for prayer just as it says in James 5:14-15. They anointed me with oil, and prayed the Prayer of faith for me. I left the church believing that I was going to be ok.
I went back to the doctor and he said that the cancer that I had was throughout my whole body, and he said I need to come in for chemo treatments. My thoughts were being attacked everyday, but I began to cast down the imaginations as the Bible says.(2 Corinthians 10:3-6)
People in the church that saw me said that I needed to do the chemo, and I lovingly tried to ask them to mind their business. I was on my way to do a Bible study, and I heard a voice in my car, it was loud and I heard it twice, it was ELI ELI LAMA SABACHTHANI, then I heard it in English, MY GOD MY GOD WHY HAST THOU FORSAKEN ME? Then I heard the Lord Speaking to me, He Asked me If I Knew Why Jesus Said These Words, I said I didn't, I was crying so hysterically I had to pull over and stop. Lord why did Jesus Say These Words, He Said So you would never have to say them. I knew at that moment that Jesus Christ Had Healed me. (Praise His Name!!!!!) He After I went back to the doctor and told him I was not going to do the chemo, he said that was a bad choice even though I believed in Jesus. he asked me to come into the hospital so that they could do all the tests to show me where the cancer was and then if I did not want the chemo, that was my choice. I said no I wont do that. I said you really don't believe that Jesus can heal do you? He did not answer, as I began to walk out the door of the office I heard the Lord saying, the doctor needed to know. I turned to him and said I will come in for the test on one condition, and he said what is that, I said that when you find out the cancer is gone you believe that Jesus Christ Is The Healer, and You have to say Hallelujah, he agreed! Of course you no the rest of the story by now. NO CANCER Praise Jesus Christ The Lord!
1 Peter 2: 24 Is Absolutely Certain!!!!!
Lord Bless you All
