Answer for Cancer: 9 Keys

Answer for Cancer: 9 Keys

 

God healed me from stage 4 inoperable cancer (lymphoma) through spiritual and natural intervention. He used my meditation on His amazing, divine Word and natural elements to heal me. Originally, I took chemotherapy treatments which perhaps saved my life at the time. But the cancer came roaring back. Here’s my story in Answer for Cancer: 9 Keys.

Beginning January 1, 2018 we will no longer update our health info. Health concerns are important; in fact, good health is one of the growing trends of the church 2018. We are not minimizing health; rather, we want to emphasize it by moving our health section to the B Mark Anderson Facebook Page. By doing so, we are focusing this blog on two areas of significant need in the church: evangelism and apostleship.

Again, we do not plan to post further updates about my remarkable cancer healing story on this blog. As time goes on you will find helpful and life-saving health information on the B Mark Anderson facebook page, info such as:

You have cancer! What’s the first thing you should do?

How to prevent cancer?

How to find healing from cancer if you or a loved one are diagnosed with cancer?

Is faith all that God expects of us in order to get healed?

How does apostolic healing differ from individual or local church healing?

Is cancer a death sentence?

How does the Budwig Protocol cure cancer?

What websites do I recommend for cancer patients and cancer caregivers?

What books do I recommend if someone has cancer?

What should you say to someone diagnosed with cancer?

Is cancer curable?

What are the best cancer treatments?

Can Meditation Cure Cancer?

Can Meditation Cure Cancer?

For me, it sure did help! No doubt about it. I did a lot of other things too, but meditation on God and His Word, brought the healing Presence of Jesus Christ into my disease-ridden body. I knew when it happened.


Can meditation cure cancer? Or for that matter, any other disease? According to the vast and increasing amount of science based research from many sources, meditation plays a role in physical, emotional and spiritual health and well-being.

During my experience of healing from stage 4 inoperable cancer, I wrote my story Answer for Cancer:9 Keys. Meditation is one of the keys.

Chicken Evangelism-21

Chicken Evangelism

Chicken Evangelism

Chicken evangelism — share Christ before you “chicken out!”

David works at a local hardware outlet. He has waited on me before and has always shown himself polite and helpful. Currently, I needed someone to help me load 2 sheets of 5 x 8 drywall. David was the first worker I spotted so I asked him to come help.

While loading, I asked David my favorite starter question, “Have you received Jesus Christ into your life?” David was quiet and pensive for a moment.

“Not yet” he replied, “but I’m getting closer.” (I thought I had talked with David earlier about his relationship with the Savior, but I couldn’t remember for sure.) Most likely, God had been preparing him in a variety of ways.

I told David that I had received Christ into my life, that He had forgiven my sins for all eternity, and was really helping me in my life. I also noted that my life didn’t change right away, but Jesus had come inside me and gradually began to change me.

Then I remembered that while a testimony helps people trust in God, it doesn’t save. The gospel alone is God’s power for salvation. So I gave David a brief gospel message: “Jesus Christ died on the cross for our sins. He gave His blood for us. Then He rose from the dead as proof that He was God’s Son. Now He’s offering a free gift of salvation which we can accept in child-like faith — just like a child receives a gift from his father.”

“Do you understand what I’m saying?”

“Yes, I do,” responded David both verbally and with an affirmative nod.

“Is there anything stopping you from receiving Jesus into your life right now?” I asked.

“I want to go to church, but I have to work on Sundays,” he returned. “I want to go to Calvary.”

”That’s a good church. I know the pastor there. But you don’t have to go to church to receive Jesus Christ into your life. You can do it right here in the shade at Menards. If you understand what I’m saying and you want to, you can pray right here and ask Jesus into your life. Do you want to receive Him now?”

David nodded affirmatively.

Go ahead and pray. Ask Jesus into your life. Use your own words. When you’re done let me know.”

No one was around, David bowed his head and I could tell he was sincerely praying. We could hear men talking in another part of the building, but no one with us at the moment. David prayed quite a long silent prayer. Actually, a very long prayer. I began to wonder if he had misunderstood me. Finally, he looked up and nodded.

“Did you ask Jesus Christ to come into your life?”

“Yes, I did,” he replied.

“Sometimes we feel differently, sometimes we don’t. The feeling doesn’t matter. The fact that Jesus Christ came into your life is what matters. Jesus said, ‘I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door – as you just did – I will come into him and fellowship with him.”

David smiled and thanked me twice. He then reached out his hand for a handshake. “It’s nice to see you again,” he said as he walked away.

Chicken evangelism works because God has already prepared many people to receive salvation. The fields are actually white for harvest!

 

Benjamin Follows God

Benjamin Follows God

Benjamin Follows God

Benjamin is  a young man from the Czech Republic who recently visited in the United States. He gave his life to Jesus Christ the first or second time our son Matthew met him. (That’s Chicken Evangelism — share Christ before you “chicken out!“) Shortly after, Benjamin received the fullness of the Holy Spirit including speaking in tongues. By that time he was already witnessing and sharing his faith. He is a new convert actively making disciples.

We continue to keep in touch. Following are a couple of emails we have received from Benjamin. They are printed exactly as he wrote them.

 

Hi Mark

We are reading bible daily and that

 enlights our steps.
As the song says ‘There is power in the
name of Jesus.’ – I totally agree.
I’am glad You doing well . . . .
I have actually baptised many souls by fire and a little evangelism.
So far I’am planing to start bible readings at my flat on Prague.
The very testment for me is to live on place where people are smoking, drinking, turning to rebelion against God’s law and I do not feel able to just leave them, because somebody should show them some way. So on it’s testing my faith daily. I had to make some missleading steps with faith to help others so those who belief are now hesitating and it’s hard to rebuild such faith… especially because it seems that I have been helping those who were just lazy.
On the other hand there are at least few guys seriously on my side or better just on their way to Jesus and it’s awesome to see. 🙂
Love in Christ

NEXT UPDATE RECEIVED APRIL 14, 2017

Hi Mark,

I’m thanking God he cured my addiction on cigarets and thanking You for prayers.
It’s one week I’m out of such circle and can live without such limitation.
God is good.
Have a good time! 🙂
Benjamin Samson
As you can see, Chicken Evangelism works to bring people to salvation. Some of those converts, like Benjamin, will become disciples who will make other disciples.
Chicken Evangelism means to share Christ befor you chicken out. I’m writing a book to tell the stories of men and women who have received salvation through personal evangelism. Currently, there is a revival of personal evangelism rising. Have you tapped in and led someone to eternal salvation through Christ Jesus lately? Tell your story to encourage others.

Praise God with me. Dr. James Feeley, my oncologist from Mercy Medical Clinic at the Cancer Care Center in Iowa City confirmed my good health again today. Dr. Feeley, who wrote the forward in my book, found no trace of cancer by either physical examination or blood tests.

This is, of course, good news. It is also what we expected.

 

My book, Answer for Cancer: 9 Keys, is helping lots of people. It is available on Amazon right here.

The book has practical and spiritual information that can help people get healed and stay healed.

 

 

I led my niece to the Lord.

 

Roy Meyers shared this story.

 

I led my niece to the Lord. She asked me how to be saved.

I explained to her the ABC’s of salvation. A all have sinned. B believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and you shall be saved. C for whosoever shall call on the name of Lord shall be saved.

After explaining those 3 scriptures she invited Jesus into her heart.

The following Sunday she was baptized. Thanks for letting me share this.

 

Here’s what I replied to Roy.

 

Hi Roy, What an inspiring story! I’m so thankful. Just imagine with me how thankful Jesus is that His suffering and shame did not go to waste. Rather, it brought eternal salvation to your niece.

Thanks for sharing. If you are willing, please send a picture of yourself. I would like to publish it as a way to encourage others.

May God keep blessing and using you. Sincerely, Mark

Demonized Man Speaks “Jesus!”

Demonized Man Speaks "Jesus!"

Demonized Man Speaks “Jesus!”

Demonized Man Speaks “Jesus!”

A demonized man came and sat down at the table beyond us. He was young, cropped with black hair, and dark in complexion. In fact, darkness seemed the aura around him. With face contorted, he appeared angry and slightly unkempt. He walked uprightly supported by a cane. An older man, who we later learned was his father, accompanied the demonized man.

Before the Demonized Man Entered the Restaurant

We were seated at a table in an open door restaurant in Bernal, Mexico. My wife and I, along with our friends, Lino and Cathy Padilla, were enjoying a meal and catching up on the news when the man and his father appeared. Something tugged on my mind to go over and pray for this man. As I continued to discreetly observe his dark demeanor, I became increasingly convinced he was oppressed by demons.

Being rather quiet and reserved by nature, I resisted the impulse to minister with the fellow. We kept visiting with our friends, but the prompting to pray with the demonized man didn’t leave.

I was Scared

To say I was scared is accurate. It is not my nature do do what I kept thinking God wanted me to do. Further, I didn’t know what would happen. Hesitation prevailed, and that was OK with me. At least for a while. But the Holy Spirit is relentless . . . .

The Tipping Point

Our meal was over. I knew I had to go one way or the other: Get up and get out — or get up and go over and talk with the demonized man. The tipping point came when I realized our friend Lino was a native-born Spanish-speaker. He is also a gifted evangelist who may have even seen someone rise from the dead as he prayed for a girl on a street. With Lino around, I decided to go for it.

What Happened as We Began to Pray for the Demonized Man

“May we pray with you?” (That’s a common question for Chicken Evangelists.) I addressed him, more as an announcement than a question. He looked startled, but something in his response suggested openness. We immediately began to proclaim the blood of Jesus over the demonized man.

The War

Some might say, “All hell broke loose.” I prefer to say, “All heaven broke loose!”  I was loud. The neighboring tables emptied quickly. We said to the man, “Say, ‘Jesus!’” The demonized man began to say “Jesus!” as best he could. The young man contorted his mouth and began to try with utmost effort to speak. His one word sounded like, “Jash-sus.” But he was smiling, shouting this one word loudly with mighty effort.

What Happened with the Man?

I don’t altogether know what actually happened with the young man. Was he  delivered in total or in part?  I’m not sure. He spoke only the one word — the name of Jesus. What I do know is a major change took place. He became jubilant! He was happy and excited!

God was glorified in at least 3 ways. I obeyed God. The man became grateful and exuberantly joyful. God chased away a demon.  Moreover, the young man spoke “Jesus!”

I wish we could follow up on this young man. There’s more, but he had made a start. Better, God had made a start.

Why talk with strangers? Why practice chicken evangelism? Because Jesus did. As a matter of fact, nearly all of Jesus’ outreach was with strangers. Check it out. How many times can you think of where Jesus evangelized His friends? Christ is in us, and we’re in Him. By His grace (and it takes grace) we do what He does.
