How To Fight Cancer And Other Disease With God On Your Side
By Tony McCleary
Cancer is the number two killer of humans in the U.S., and it stands second only to heart disease. Cancer normally comes uninvited, and it spares no one. Lung cancer is highest with males, and breast cancer for females. But you have the strongest enemy of cancer and disease on your side, and that's with God.
In most cases, cancer patients have options to take. These include surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation treatments.
When the body is young, the chances are good of fighting the disease, and be able to absorb the severe medical treatments. When the person is older, and the cancer is detected late, the body might already be devastated from the disease. It simply becomes a tougher journey to take.
My brother's cancer, for instance, was detected at the age of 59, and by 61 he passed away. They did nine surgical operations to remove his cancerous stomach. He had no more energy and determination left to live in him. Unfortunately his connection with God was never there, by his own choice.
What are some options to consider, other than medical, given that your life is presently in the hands of the doctors and hospitals, and you are battling cancer for your life?
You have alternatives, and these are: prayers, holy water, spiritual healing, and visual healing. Getting back to God is a huge step forward for many, if you are presently away from Him. Christians follow Jesus Christ, while Catholics follow Jesus, His Mother the Virgin Mary, and many other saints. Two very popular saints are St Therese of Lisieux and St Mary Faustina: both in the healing family of saints.
These are avenues for you to consider in order to fight your cancer, and every single one is based totally on proven experience over the centuries, and on actual and current cases:
a) Prayers day and night are extremely effective for God does listen; and the Bible is filled with examples of many famous people, like King David and Jesus Christ, who prayed daily during their lifetimes. Evangelist Billy Graham said it beautifully, "Prayer unlocks the doors of heaven and releases the power of God."
b) Holy water is a consecrated element which is used for baptismal and other Christian functions. Oil may also be anointed by a representative of the clergy for healing of the patient.
c) The elders of the church may get together on your behalf and pray for your life. This is a highly recommended method for you will find it in the Bible. Jesus Christ left these words to remember, "When two or more gather in my name, I will be there amongst you."
d) Spiritual healing is a form of healing invoked by the requester to God to heal either one self or another person. In this case God himself intervenes to produce a "miracle of healing." Many people who believe in God, don't necessarily believe in Jesus Christ, and because of their religious beliefs want to work with God only.
e) "Visual Healing" is again a form of spiritual healing for the physical recovery of a person suffering from cancer or any other type of disease. In this case the requester makes his plea directly with Jesus Christ. This can be done at a church at any time of day and night, or even at your home. In visual healing you try to experience the actual healing taking effect by Jesus Christ Himself. This experience of healing is best recommended to be done at an adoration chapel, for it is here that Jesus is present in the form of the Host.
All of the healing methods noted above are religious in nature, and based on a firm belief in God. Someone once said that it is difficult to ask God for a miracle, and yet not believe in Him.
The main objective in any situation is to experiment with everything in your hands to save your life or that of a loved one. When doctors have tried everything, go spiritual 100%. You are leaving your life to God to take care of you. Medicine has tried, now it's time to let God take over your life.
Best recommendation is to stay with God early in your life, so when you need Him the most He is close by. Cancer, or any form of disease, is no one's friend, and it is a real shame that something could have been done early to save a life.
No life should die prematurely from disease of any form, regardless of their age; if it can be prevented or fought for in its early stages of development. Perhaps religion is not something that you practice, but someone very close to you shouldn't have to suffer for that decision.
Thousands of people die every day without ever having felt the presence of God in their lives. Don't let this opportunity pass by you.
Medicine can do so much for you, but with God and His Son Jesus Christ on your side, you can do so much more!
