A little over a week ago, I developed an ache in my jaw, at the rear, around one of my three remaining wisdom teeth. About a year ago, I had one of my wisdom teeth removed because of the pain it caused. Part of it had broken, causing severe pain, especially when eating, and the tooth became very sensitive to the temperature of the food I ate. At that time in my life, I was almost clueless about divine healing or divine health and my first recourse was to go the dentist and have it removed.
Shortly after that, God led me to the UBM website. I listened to the Hidden Manna for The End Times series and I also listened to several of David's audio Bible study teachings. I learned a lot about faith healing, holding to my confessions and the promises of God. God directed me to many other faith healing sources also but what I learned from UBM, I put into immediate practice.
Several times a year, usually up to three or more, I caught severe colds that lasted for over a week, accompanied with laryngitis. One of my favorite boasts to family and friends was, "I never catch the flu but I always catch the cold, every year!" And you guessed it, I caught a cold every year up until last year. Last year is the first year, that I remember, in which I did not catch a cold. Nothing would stick. I would develop very minor symptoms but within a day or so, they were gone. What changed? My confession changed. Where once I boasted, "I catch a cold every year!" Now I boast in the Lord and in what He has done for me on the cross: "By Jesus' stripes I am healed" and "He forgives all my iniquities and heals all my diseases". Praise God!
The devil attacked me several times last year, trying to get me to change my confession, like he did Job, but I would not change my confession. Many strange viruses attacked me, but were never too severe and within a day (if my memory serves) they were gone. I had my brother pray over me during those times. My brother contracted the flu many times during his life. It was something he would contract frequently, but last year when those symptoms reared up in him, we prayed and saw the flu depart overnight. Again, praise the power of God. Greater is He that is in us than anything in this world!
I have so many testimonies in this area with healing. I saw just last year and this year, people healed of cancer, bad infections departing within days, diabetes symptoms reducing to minor levels and missing persons being found. And this is nothing I have done, but all through the power of God alone.
Recently, as mentioned in the first paragraph, I developed another wisdom tooth problem. The pain grew so bad that I could hardly eat and my jaw swelled to a point where it hurt to open it. I prayed the prayer of faith, rebuked the devil and held to my confession of Jesus. I also asked people to pray for me, including the UBM prayer team. They prayed over me and within three or four days the pain and swelling had reduced about 90% and within a week I was healed. Praise the Lord. May God bless everyone at UBM.
