Paralyzed Twice - Healed Twice! 

(By: Caroline Macby)

It is my pleasure to send in this amazing testimony. This testimony is unique because it is one in its kind - having been paralyzed twice and twice healed less than three months by God miraculously.  

I am sending in this testimony because this was part of the covenant I made with God - if He ever heals me and makes me live a normal life again, I promise to tell the whole world testifying and telling others what the Lord can do for them, if only they surrender to Him. 

Many Christians have abandoned their faith for something that is not permanent. Some even think that miracles have ceased. What we see today is Christians compromising their faith, not knowing what to believe in, and because of this act, they fail to experience the miracle working power of God. God cannot be mocked! The bible says that what a man soweth, he will reap. You will not plant corn expecting to reap apples; you reap what you sow.

What I am trying to say is that miracles have not ceased. The miracles we read about in the bible days are still happening in our midst! I received twice a miraculous healing because I surrendered totally to God. Our God is not a one-time healer. No matter how many times you are struck with illness, don't give up. I am testifying to the glory of God - having been twice paralyzed and twice healed by God. I stand to testify that God is the same yesterday, today, and forever.

On December 9, 1996 I was struck by a high fever - from fever to headache, headache to stiff neck. The following four days my condition drastically deteriorated. Finally on the fifth day I had a stroke. One side of my body became paralyzed. I was then rushed to a hospital; being in the hospital made me sicker. On the third day I requested that I should be discharged. The doctor was so afraid and my husband felt the same way. They never knew if they were running a risk by letting me go home, but I insisted and finally I was discharged and driven home. When we got home, I was laid on my bed in my room. So we as a family got down on our knees while I was still lying on the bed. My husband took authority over the paralysis. He confessed every spirit of death after which I was anointed with oil.

We remained in faith, confessing that I was healed and thanking God for the healing. I believe that I was healed from that day, though no physical change on my body had manifested yet. I kept on confessing that I am healed. On the third of January 1997 at 10:00 AM I took my first walk - Hallelujah to Jesus - He kept His promise! After about one month I was fully okay and I went back to work.

But on the 7th of March 1997, the worst happened. I started to experience the same symptoms I had the first time. I was wondering what this could be again. To my greatest surprise on the fifth day I was completely down, every muscle cell in my body collapsed. I became a plump - where my bones went only God can tell. The enemy had struck again. This time the condition was so much worse that we could not afford any medical bills. I was left alone to die. The few doctors who came to the house to see me left disappointed because of what they saw. Medically I was a living corpse. For no one has seen this type before, but even in my state I refused to give up.

I knew that God who healed me the first time is still alive. I know it is not His wish that I should die. Having gone through this before and coming out unhurt, I knew that Jehovah-Jireh is still there. I trusted God to heal me. So we as a family surrendered to Him completely for my healing. There were many suggestions that I be taken to a shrine home where I could receive my healing. We refused. I prefer to die believing God than compromise my faith.

Our home became a chapel; brethren from different denominations came at different intervals to pray with me, and as they came, fasting was declared. I find this peaceful in my heart. I remained firm in my faith. I made sure that every word that came out of my mouth was God's promises to my healing. I refused to let the enemy ruin my life for me just as he had ruined my mother's life. She also died of paralysis. I fought to the end!

On the third week God spoke through His angel in my dream. He told me He was going to heal me. He gave me Daniel 3:27. That was the scripture I kept on reminding Him of His promises. I never one day wavered for I knew that since God had spoken He would do it. I kept on confessing that I am healed until 90 days when finally God's promise manifested itself physically for people to see. We all need to patiently wait for the appointed time of God. God did not just heal me without my making a commitment to Him. 

I need sponsors to help me run a life documentary of this unique healing. My book is ready for publication. I am still believing God to provide sponsors to assist me in carrying this testimony around the world and for me to show myself to the world. I go to churches testifying to them what the Lord has done in my life. I am a healthy, hard working woman, mother of three, age 37, whom the enemy wanted to ruin. I refuse to let him. To God be all the Glory! If He can do this for me, He can do it for whoever believes that He, our God, is no respecter of any person. 

I thank God for the spirit of unity he planted in my family during my ordeal. I think that was the key to the miracle, for the power of God cannot manifest where there is disunity. My husband and my children remained in faith with me.

I learned to do everything afresh just like a newborn baby. Today is 18 months since I am healed. I am living a normal life with no deformity on any part of my body just as the Lord had said. To God be all the Glory! Our God is faithful and He is worthy to be trusted.

I can be reached by fax, phone, or by mail. God bless you all!

Dear Reader - are you at peace with God?  If not, you can be. Do you know what awaits you when you die? You can have the assurance from God that heaven will be your home, if you would like to be certain. You can even have that assurance RIGHT NOW!  Either Jesus Christ died for your sins, or He didn't (He did!). Are you prepared to stand before God on the Judgment Day and tell Him that you didn't need the shed blood of Jesus Christ on the Cross to have your sins forgiven and get in right-standing with God? We plead with you...please don't make such a tragic mistake. 

To get to know God, to be at peace with God, to have your sins forgiven, to make certain heaven will be your home for eternity, to make certain that you are in right-standing with God right now ... please click here to help you understand the importance of being reconciled to God. What you do about being reconciled to God will determine where you will spend eternity, precious one. Your decision to be reconciled to God is the most important decision you'll ever make in this life, because in Christ, it is impossible to put a value on the worth of your soul in light of eternity.


JESUS DID IT! and...


Remember:  All that we do in this life comes back to our God-given purpose which is to serve and glorify God. The money and assets we accumulate, the fame and power we've attained or seek to attain - all of the things of this nature will one day pass away, but those lives of others we impact for Jesus Christ will last for eternity, and we will be rewarded for the part we helped play by impacting those lives ... for eternity. (Matthew 6:19-20 is our assurance)
