"Mark, come fully out of agreement with all demonic forces who send you physical symptoms saying you still have these infirmities, which I have said you are healed from. "You overcome the demons, the symptoms and the infirmity by believing, speaking and envisioning that which I have spoken to you. Thus recovery comes. Recovery moves forward. Healing light and healing processes are turned on in your body which continue the recovery process. As long as you are believing, speaking and envisioning that which I speak to you, recovery is continuing. If you quit believing, speaking and envisioning that which I say, then recovery goes into remission. "So, keep recovery moving forward by continuously believing, speaking and envisioning that which I have spoken. As you are well aware, clear envisioning produces the kingdom emotions of gratefulness, thankfulness and compassion." -- Mark Virkler
This teaching is just evil. Not all illness is demonic in nature. Some of it comes from aging, injury, or exposure. It is all a result of our sin nature but there is not a demon behind every cough. The notion of envisioning your healing is nothing short of the visualization method found in eastern mysticism. Also, how weak is the healing of God? Yes we must have faith in who He is but where in the Gospel accounts does Jesus say His healing will stop or reverse if the healed does not visualize it correctly moving forward? Clear envisioning is not of God beloved so it cannot produce godly thankfulness or compassion. Who does this theology leave the true work of healing to. To you of course. It is a self-centered, narcissistic, and unbiblical presentation of healing.
"So now you have combined hearing, believing, speaking, seeing, feeling and acting. Together these activities move recovery forward to victory. So stand firm in what I have spoken and full victory shall be yours. You recall in the wilderness, the Israelites would not believe, speak, see, feel or act on my promise that I had given them the promised land, so they aborted this miracle I had planned for them. Learn from their mistakes. Receive your miracle." Lord, why is it so hard to confess I am healed, when the symptoms are still present? "Mark, it is because you are looking primarily at the physical world rather than the spiritual world. You need to change your gaze and gaze longer in the spiritual world and then the confession, 'I am healed' will no longer be hard to make. This is true because you see the reality of the healing in the spiritual world, and whatever you gaze upon becomes your reality. Abraham gazed at the stars in the sky, and faith grew for My promise to him that he would be the father of many nations (Gen. 15:1-6; Rom. 4:16-22). Follow the steps of Abraham, the father of faith." -- Mark Virkler
This is just vile. To compare someone not being healed to the disobedient Israelites who ended up dying in the wilderness is beyond disgusting. Did you notice at the start Virkler admitted to having open-heart surgery? Where was his visualization and gazing into the spirit world then? Please. This teaching browbeats sick believers until they doubt their own faith or maybe even doubt the God they serve. It all stems from valuing the wrong life. God is sovereign and sometimes His answer is no. When Paul writes that he can do all things he is speaking about godly contentment regardless of the situation. Paul knew he was going to be killed by the Romans but objected not. When Timothy had a stomach ailment Paul did not tell him to visualize but rather have a glass of wine with dinner. Let us check in now on Kathy DeGraw whose reliance on word faith theology knows no bounds.
"There is power in the words we speak. Proverbs instructs us, "Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit" (Prov. 18:21). Our words have power in the spiritual realm. Therefore, we need to be careful about the words we speak out.
Instead of saying ... Say instead ...
"I have cancer." ... "The doctor has diagnosed me with cancer, but I am taking my authority and claiming the word that by Jesus' stripes, I am healed."
"I have a headache." ... "A headache is attacking my body."
"I am a diabetic." ... "I am watching my sugar intake and how it affects my body."
