You need to know who’s talking.

     For some reason after making a decision not to have surgery, a scene from the movie, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade kept playing in my mind… If you saw the movie it’s where the villain points a gun at Indy and then swings it over and shoots Indy’s dad right in the gut.  He then looks at Indy and says, “It’s time to ask yourself what you really believe.”  After making a tough phone call to let the doctor know I wouldn’t be having the surgery I got started meditating all that I believed about healing as I understood it from the years of teaching I had received from the Word of God.  Two days after the surgery date I heard the Lord say to me, “curse that cancer like I did the fig tree”.  Well that seems easy enough and if this is gonna turn out like the fig tree episode I’ll be healed by morning, right? As a matter of fact, months of mornings passed from that day and the growth in my body showed no signs of withering.  In fact it was appearing to grow larger.  I was doing everything I knew to do as a faith person, to watch my confession, and even began to watch my diet,  staying clear of foods that medical science has declared to cause or grow cancer.  During thanksgiving of that year as is my custom,  I spent time with the Lord during the time off work, and I looked at the year in review.  It’s usually a time to see what I haven’t finished of any assignments the Lord gave me; where I missed anything and try to get it done or changed before December 31st.  That year He told me two things that encouraged me. First, He told me that I wasn’t Kingdom minded enough, which implied that I had better start getting more Kingdom minded. The second thing was that He was going to increase my teaching ministry. I interpreted that as meaning… I’m still going to be around, right?  Always remember that as soon as the Lord speaks, the enemy comes and starts talking also, ask Eve.  I soon realized that there are certain pains that speak louder that others…
