Healed When the Dominoes of Revelation Fell

Teresa Houghteling (left)“My dominant emotion was fear. The disease that was in my body was slowly killing me from the inside out, and there was nothing I could do about it.”

Every six months, Teresa Houghteling had to get her bloodwork checked to see if her organs were still functioning properly. She was suffering from the deadly and incurable Sjögren’s syndrome. After dealing with the disease for several years, it had become something she just had to live with. However, in 2007, Teresa had an encounter with God and rededicated herself to Him, beginning a new journey.

Unfortunately, Teresa’s body did not immediately line up with her inner transformation. In fact, her physical symptoms worsened. “In 2011, I was diagnosed with lupus, degenerative disk disease in my back, a bulged disk, and carpal tunnel in my right arm,” shares Teresa. “The emotion that followed was pure confusion.”

It wasn’t long, though, before some friends gave her Andrew’s You’ve Already Got It! teaching. In 2012, Teresa’s husband, Patrick, started Charis Bible College; Teresa herself enrolled a year later.

Sitting under the Word of God, Teresa began to understand the importance of revelation knowledge and how words are powerless without it. “I remember Andrew making the statement that one of the reasons we don’t get healed is because our physical bodies are more real to us than our spirit man.” For Teresa, this transformation was well on its way, and everything she had been meditating on for six months culminated at Healing School in March 2014.

“Somebody spoke a word from the stage, and immediately the dominoes of revelation I had received just fell. I got it. I began to speak to the diseases in my body and told them to get out. On my way home I heard God say, ‘So, if you’re healed, doesn’t that include your thyroid gland?’” Fear tried to creep back in as Teresa thought about what would happen if she stopped her medication. However, she determined not to allow fear to dominate her
life again!

Teresa’s journey brought her to a place of complete health and freedom. However, she will be the first one to tell you that it was not overnight. “It was a process for me. I had emotional healing that took place before the physical healing…. I became so focused on my relationship with God that I honestly couldn’t say when symptoms began to leave my body…. I know that no matter what comes my way, His Word is true, and no one will ever be able to take that away
from me.”

A Moment of Clarity 

“I was just a Christian on cruise control, rolling along with whatever came my way. I loved God and knew He loved me, but I thought I was here to just work on myself, always trying to live up to His expectations.”

Ever since she was a little girl, Melanie Davis struggled with severe allergies to all sorts of things—dust, weeds, dog dander…you name it! Even with a daily routine of capsules, Melanie found it difficult just to breathe and sleep. “I kept everyone awake at night,” recalls Melanie, “and that June [2007], it was particularly bad. The whites of my eyes were swollen, so much so that they covered part of my pupils. I spent my days in a fog because of how bad the allergies were, and it didn’t seem like things would ever change.”

Sitting in the back of the room with her tissue box in hand, Melanie spent the first night of the 2007 Summer Family Bible Conference trying not to fall asleep. Miserable and full of antihistamine, she listened as Andrew began telling a story about a very young girl who was laying her hands on people and seeing them healed.

“Andrew then said that someone there was struggling with breathing and seasonal-type things, giving them trouble sleeping. He asked them to stand up. At that moment, it felt like there were arms under mine, lifting me up to my feet. There I stood, along with a few others around the room, when Andrew yelled, ‘Well, there’s Melanie Davis! Good to see you!’ I know I turned every shade of red there was.”

Andrew then directed those nearby to lay hands on those who were standing. With her eyes closed, Melanie could feel the warmth as hands were laid on her shoulders, surrounding her in prayer.

“I don’t remember what Andrew said or did,” remarks Melanie, “but at the end of the prayer, my eyes popped wide open. I could clearly see everything around me. My eyes didn’t itch at all, and I could feel the swelling leave. I was stunned and started crying. Then I looked to my left, and there was that young girl Andrew was telling us about. She had prayed for me! I was healed, head to toe, as quickly as the snap of my fingers.

“I knew that night that God was real. I figured He probably was before, but now I knew He was alive and that I was healed! Don’t be discouraged. You don’t need to work for it; it’s already there, just waiting for you to believe it. I may not have all the answers, but I do know that God wants us to be like 3 John 2—in good health.”

Melanie knew her healing had stuck like glue when she went on a bike ride in the same area where she had struggled to breathe before, and had no problems of any kind—except maybe keeping up with her kids! She can walk through a pasture, rub her face in a bed of weeds, mow, camp, fish, and cuddle with a dog without one single sniffle or sneeze. In the past eight years, she has not sneezed, and her eyes have not swelled.

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

Philippians 4:13, New King James Version

The Pirated Gospel

On a recent trip to England for the annual Grace and Faith Conference, Andrew Wommack reunited with a couple from Buncrana, Ireland. Mike and Aster Mullins had previously shared the testimony of their young son’s healing with him. “When our eighteen-month-old son was diagnosed with stage 4 neuroblastoma cancer, it shook us to the core,” Mike said. “Thanks to Andrew Wommack and his free teaching material, we were able to rebuild our faith on the truth of God’s Word instead of man’s tradition.”

When Mike and Aster’s son Andrew began displaying unusual symptoms and losing weight, they took him to their family physician for a checkup. “The doctors examined him but couldn’t find anything wrong,” Aster said. “But I knew something wasn’t right. When I found the lump on his back, the cold hand of fear gripped my heart.” The discovery of that lump would initiate a storm of tests and a final diagnosis of stage 4 neuroblastoma.

The Mullins soon discovered that the cancer in Andrew’s body had affected nearly every bone, including his spinal column. In the midst of the battle for their son’s life, Mike and Aster struggled to hold on to their faith. “I’d been told all my life that God was in control, that He had a purpose for everything we experienced in life, but my heart was confused. I couldn’t understand how I, as an imperfect parent, could have more compassion for my son than God did. Did I have to beg God for mercy? At one point, I remember thinking, Maybe if we got 10,000 people praying, God would respond,” Mike recalled. “I just couldn’t figure out why we were still praying at all,” Aster added. “I mean if everything in our lives was set in stone, if God controlled everything, then why bother?” “We were in survival mode,” Mike commented.

Then one day, the Mullins received a care package in the mail that included a pirated CD series from Andrew Wommack Ministries, entitled God Wants You Well. “When we got the handwritten copies of Andrew Wommack’s CDs, I was so raw, I couldn’t listen,” Aster explained. “But when we finally took it off the shelf, what I heard was like water to my parched soul. Could it be true? I thought. Does God really want to heal everyone, every time?” Soon the Mullins were searching the Word for themselves, and what they found boosted their faith! “We discovered that healing is a part of our salvation and that we could lay hands on the sick and see them recover.”

The Mullins immediately laid hands on their son’s legs and arms and commanded health into his bones. Several days later, new test results came in, and Andrew’s bones were completely cancer-free! As they continued to learn more about healing and their authority as believers, the Mullins prayed for their son again. “We commanded cancer to leave his body in the name of Jesus and stood on God’s promise that no poison or other deadly thing would harm Andrew, despite the progressive treatment he was undergoing (Mark 16:18).” Then the doctors called to confirm that Andrew’s whole body was cancer-free and that all his organs were healthy and functioning normally!

Thanks to the faithfulness of Andrew Wommack Ministries’ partners, anyone can access this nearly-too-good-to-be-true news from anywhere in the world—completely free of charge. “All of my materials are copyrighted,” Andrew said during the Grace and Faith Conference in England. “So, if you’re going to copy them [like the person who sent the Mullins his CD series], do it right, and use them to boost someone’s faith!”
