Healed from Sinusitis!

Hello everyone,

My name is Gerhard, and I live in St. Petersburg, in North-Western Russia. St. Petersburg is well known for its beautiful architecture and historical sites, but also for its very tough, damp climate. People who live here are ill quite frequently, and flu epidemics are common; of course, this is also due to the mass of people living so close together in one place. A ride on any kind of public transport during times of flu epidemics gives you a very good chance of getting sick!

Besides flu there are quite a number of other nasty illnesses you can catch here very easily, and one of them is sinusitis (inflammation of the sinus). I am not quite sure what doctors do about it in the West, but here they don’t mess around for too long; if they see you have it, they take a long needle and ram it up your nose to release the pus which has been building up in your sinuses. Of course, they also prescribe you antibiotics to kill off the attacking germs.

They went inside a room, and two minutes later you could hear them screaming with pain.

Once I took my wife, who was suffering with symptoms of sinusitis, to a clinic for treatment and we ended up in a big queue of people who were all treated in the same way. They went inside a room, and two minutes later you could hear them screaming with pain. Three minutes later they were released, with handfuls of antibiotics to take over the next couple of days.

My wife had experienced this procedure in the past; she suffered sinusitis a couple of times, and once, when the pus was not released in time, she even suffered meningitis – a life-threatening illness! Praise the Lord, my wife was healed from all her illnesses when she became a born-again Christian and the doctors still can’t believe that she is completely healthy.

One day I caught the bug, and started to feel enormous pressure around my nose and in my forehead. Blowing my nose would not release any mucus or puss, so we knew it was sinusitis! I definitely did not want to suffer this procedure with the needle, so I prayed, but the pressure did not decrease!

Of course, the longer you wait the more mucus builds up, and you run the risk of developing meningitis. So ‘my back was against the wall’, and I can tell you, I was praying fervently! During this time of prayer I remembered a book I had read, which we have in our church library. The book is in two parts, “How To Heal The Sick” and “Handbook For Healing”, and is by Charles and Frances Hunter, a couple who have been mightily used by the Lord in healing ministries for many years. One of the main messages in their books is that you need to pray specifically according to the sickness you are suffering from. “Handbook For Healing” contains a list of all the main sicknesses, and how to pray specifically to get rid of them. So I took that book, found “sinusitis” in the list, and asked a Christian friend in our Assembly to pray as it was explained there, namely:

Rebuke the infection of the sinuses.
Lay hands on your face and order the sinuses to open, and the pus to flow out. Order the sinuses to heal.
Pray for the arms to become the same length (this corrects any twists in the spine) and order the swelling of the sinuses to disappear.
Avoid nicotine (no problem after I became a Christian) and caffeine.
Drinking at least 8 glasses of water will help.
A few hours after this prayer and drinking lots of water, the pus started to stream down my nose and the pressure was released! Praise the Lord – He did it without any needles!

Since having become a Christian several years ago I have experienced many testimonies and miracles of people being healed from very serious illnesses, drug addictions, etc. You can read many of them on this website! They will give you faith and lead you to the Healer and Physician, Jesus, Who can “…heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease among the people.MATTHEW 4:23

Getting healed by God is great, but what you really have to worry about is getting your soul healed, freed from sin, and prepared for eternity! Start reading the Bible NOW and you will find the answers there; it is a handbook for salvation and healing!

MARK 16:15-20 “And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned. And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover. So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God. And they went forth, and preached every where, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following. Amen.”

Love in the Lord, Gerhard
