Because Becky is a word faith adherent and thinks nothing of usurping that which belongs to God alone, it is not surprising that she would believe the typical false teaching regarding the power of words. What the Proverb is stressing is a general statement of the power of words. What word faith false teachers turn it into is a lesson on self-talk, which it is not referring to. The only one whose words can actually produce life or death in reality is God. Notice here the depth of deception Dvorak is willing to sink to. Ephesians 6:17 says nothing about the "spoken" word of God. The helmet of salvation is the word of God, period. Wanting to turn this into a word faith text however, Becky mangles the verse and claims it means the spoken word. It does not.
"If you receive a bad medical report filled with death and doom, override it with spoken words of faith. Say aloud, "I shall not die, but I shall live and declare the works of the Lord" (Ps. 118:17). If they say, "There is no hope." You turn the situation around and speak forth, "Then I am in right standing for a miracle. According to Matthew 19:26, "With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible." Is this craziness? No, it's faith talk, and it is pleasing to the Father. And if you will work it, it will produce life and healing every time. But you must be consistent. And only speak God's healing promises over yourself. Do not speak about the death report. Speak God's report that decrees, "But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit that lives in you" (Rom. 8:11)." -- Becky Dvorak
Is this craziness? No, it is wickedness. This is how evil this teaching is. Someone gets a death sentence report from the doctor and Becky Dvorak instructs them to override it? With what? Psalm 118:17? Has she even read the context? This verse is David speaking as the Nation of Israel. It is the nation of Israel declaring that it will not die. It is not meant as prescriptive text for us to wield to dismiss legitimate medical reports. Matthew 19:26? This verse is dealing with how a rich man will ever enter the kingdom of heaven. Also realize that with God all things are possible -- not guaranteed. This is not faith talk nor is it pleasing to God. Why would God be pleased by a petulant child declaring and decreeing things He never said? Do not even speak about the death report? We have all read horror stories of people who never even sought treatment for themselves or their children because they were relying on evil teaching such as this. Can God heal? Absolutely and one should pray in faith that He would but realize that He is sovereign. To then take Romans 8:11, which deals with the promises of salvation and turn them into a carnal emergency room is just spiritually criminal. Dvorak concludes:
"The vocabulary of faith defies the natural realm of understanding. And it is a supernatural weapon given to us to use for God's glory in our lives. And if and when we do wield this weapon of faith and decree life in place of death, healing instead of sickness and strength over weakness, the manifestation of our much desired miracle will manifest." -- Becky Dvorak
Yeah, we have zero power to declare and decree anything other than we are a sinner saved by the grace of almighty God. The arrogance of this position is breathtaking and only overshadowed by the scope of Scripture mutilation. Becky Dvorak referenced10 Scriptures between these two articles and not one was understood, explained, or handled correctly. They were all mangled beyond recognition, revealing all you need to know about Becky Dvorak and the theology of mandatory healing. Neither is biblical.
