“But I will restore you to health and heal your wounds, declares the Lord.”
The biggest problem with a long-standing chronic illness is that it chips away at the faith one might have that he can be healed. The longer it takes, the weaker our faith might become.
Avraham has suffered from severe chronic eczema since 1981. For 40 years he endured the pain and despair of not being able to receive any help, despite attempts to get treated in Germany, as well as Israel — nothing seemed to help. Turning to religion also didn’t seem to produce any results, despite Avraham’s frequent visits to local synagogues. There just didn’t seem to be a power strong enough to heal him… until he came to Beit Hallel.
When Avraham first came to Beit Hallel, he wasn’t actively seeking healing. It was simply a condition he conformed to live with for the rest of his life. But when you suffer from something painful, regardless of how long it’s been and how used to it you might have become, you’ll always keep some hope that one day you might be free from pain.
Praying for healing is a big part of our ministry. We never let an opportunity pass where we can be a vessel of God’s mercy and love while praying for the sick.
When Avraham came forward and asked for prayer for his condition, I laid my hands on him and wholeheartedly believed that Yeshua took his eczema on the cross, it is no longer Avraham’s sickness to carry.
Nothing visible happened, and Avraham thanked me for the prayer and went home.
A few days later I got a call from him, he was shocked: he woke up one morning completely healed! No trace of eczema at all, after having endured it for 40 years and knowing exactly what it feels and looks like.
Avraham couldn’t wait for us to meet so he can show me his skin! He was completely healed!
Healing is a reality in Yeshua! He paid the price so we can all have access to it. Regardless of how long it takes; a week or 40 years like in Avraham’s case, it’s a reality and it’s ours in Yeshua!
