The second Saturday of every month at Lifechanger Church in Claremore is Manna Ministry Saturday. We provide a hot meal and a box full of groceries to people in need. Between the meal and passing out groceries they receive a message from a member of our pastoral staff. Today the message was delivered by Associate Youth Pastor Chris Wofford. He spoke about the Israelites being on the verge of entering the Promised Land and how Moses sent 12 spies into the land to scope out the situation and report back. All of them came back with glowing reports of the fertility of the land and the amount and size of crops. The land was inhabited by what the spies called giants. Ten of them were fearful and said the Israelites could not defeat them but the other two, Caleb and Joshua, said they could win because God was with them and reminded the people of all the things God had brought them through, from leaving Egypt when it looked impossible to water coming from a rock, clouds covering the sun in a hot desert wilderness, the Red Sea being opened for them and then crashing back to destroy the army of the Pharoah that was chasing them, to manna falling from Heaven each day, enough to sustain them for a day. I was able to hear this very clearly from my position at the outer door because the inner door had been left open, something that isn't a usual occurrence. This is very encouraging to me because I believe this situation is another sign from God to me. I am not usually able to hear the message but I believe God intended for me to hear this one to help me deal with my situation. I have been saying all along that I would completely recover from the stroke I had, especially since the dream of recovery I had in May 2016. The prognoses from the stroke are giants that I shouldn't be able to overcome but since God is with me those giants are nothing and they will be defeated, God told me so in a dream and the dream He sent me WILL come to pass.

Confirmation of what you are saying, Bob, is that in the Hebrew calendar, we are in the year of the open doorway or gate. According to prophesy currently, we are being positioned and promoted for His purposes in readying America for a great awakening. (Tim Sheets, Dutch Sheets and others on Elijah List)
The year is 5778, which is "Ayin" (70) and Chet (8).
"Ayin" means, "to see, to discern" and "Chet" (pronounced "heth") means "resurrection" or "new life" and is pictured as an open doorway or gateway. So, this is the year to go through your new doorway or gate, as is true for those paying attention.
So, you should expect everything and stand on His promise, and never say anything (power of the tongue is life or death), again, never say anything that even acknowledges your stroke. Acknowledge only His promises and "By His stripes, you are healed. Thank you, Lord" Amen.
Jea, thanks very much for the info, I am standing on the dream sent by God that I would be restored because I AM healed by His stripes!!!!! The only thing in question is WHEN I am going to see the manifestation of it!!!!!
And I am waiting on His promise to me. He is faithful, Amen.
The fervent effectual prayer of the righteous availeth much... often, our healing is predicated on confessing of our sins and is received with prayer and the anointing of Oil by the Elders...
See: James 5:14-16 King James Version (KJV)
"14 Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord:
15 And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him.
16 Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much."
Our healing was manifested in Christ some 2000 plus years ago... on the cross at Calvary. However, sin and our lack of faith can hinder receiving that provision of our salvation. That is why it sometimes takes more than our personal faith and prayer to manifest our healing.
St. James calls on those who are sick... and unable to receive their healing, to summon the elders of the Church ... those of strong faith... to receive their confession, too pray and anoint them with oil, that they may be healed.
