Sid: My guest by way of telephone is Pastor Henry Wright, Pastor of Pleasant Valley Church in Thomaston, Georgia. He has invested his life in understanding healing; and he’s written a manual it’s called “A More Excellant Way” subtitled “Spiritual Roots of Disease, Pathways to Wholeness.” And he has just the most unusual teaching that so few Christians understand. We were sharing a scripture yesterday, “My people are destroyed for a lack of knowledge” and then he alphabetically lists the major diseases. I’m just thumbing through acne, Crone’s disease, diabetes, ADD. Then he has testimonies of people that have been healed and so many people are getting healed by just reading this manual coming to grips with what the cause of their problems are; repenting and that’s what’s necessary changing behavior and they’re getting healed. Henry before we went on the air you told me about a survey of woman’s top health threats; explain.
Henry: This is Shah Mayo Clinic actually this year in April 13th of this year. The number 1 is heart disease; number 2 is cancer; number 3 are strokes; number 4. is chronic obstructive pulmonary disease; number 5 is Alzheimer’s disease; number 6 is diabetes; number 7 is accidents. Six of the seven are spiritual rooted; what’s really interesting here in this article is that the solutions have nothing to do with our spirituality or even how we think. The only thing that Mayo Clinic is offering in this article is avoid smoking, amount of alcohol you drink, eating and diet rich in fruits and vegetables, exercise and control other health conditions such as high blood pressure, diabetes, and high cholesterol, which are all spiritual diseases. Not one thing Mayo Clinic is saying is really involved in heart diseases at all to speak of and that is love.
Henry: And the other is fear.
Sid: Let’s focus on love because this is a problem in our society. A wife goes to her husband or a husband goes to his wife and says “I don’t love you” and they’re devastated. Is that what you’re talking about?
Henry: Well, I’ve been dealing with female diseases for over 22 years and I will tell you that to the bulk of female disorders are a lack of covering and loved by fathers and husbands. Boy that will get me some applause out there in the audience out there I’m sure. But it’s true; the females were designed by God according to scriptures to be covered by someone and something stronger than them who are able to give them a place of love, acceptance and safety. And the females were created for us by God to help us serve as a helpmate. And I don’t think we’ve treated these girls like we should have because if we had they wouldn’t be in such goofy shape when it comes to disease. Let’s talk about love and fear; the Bible says in the last days men’s hearts shall fail them because of fear. I don’t even see that listed here in Mayo Clinic’s article however in the Journal of American Medicine there’s probably about 30 different disease that are listed that are the product of fear, anxiety and stress. Now let’s talk about fear. 1st John 4:18 says “There is no fear in love.” Oh boy, right there in the Bible in 1st John chapter 4 verse 18 is a tremendous open door to conversation. Could it be that if we have not experienced love correctly; maybe we don’t think God loves us; maybe we don’t love ourselves. Maybe we don’t love others or maybe we don’t feel others love us. Could it be then that fear comes because we don’t feel loved? Absolutely because if there is no fear in love, if you have not been loved perfectly then fear comes. And so right here we have a tremendous article; can I read something to you it’s an article called “The mind heart connection.” by Dr. Dean Ornish. I think just about everybody in the world knows Dr. Dean Ornish is. Can I just read you something?
Henry: I’m not aware of any other factor in medicine not diet, not smoking, not exercise, not stress, not genetics, not drugs, not surgery that has a greater impact on our quality of life, incidents of illness and premature death says Dr. Dean Ornish MD than does the healing power of love. Dr. Ornish and growing number of other scientists the real epidemic in the America culture is not heart disease but rather emotional and spiritual diseases once associated with the heart; alienation, depression and loneliness.
Sid: Okay this begs the question the woman knows she’s in that boat there is no guess work on her part, what does she do about it?
Henry: Well, this opens up the big issue is that maybe there can be activity between her and her husband to restore the difficulties. This is easy for me to say apart from God it’s almost impossible to bring peace because we’re into trying to move the pieces around without resolving what’s behind it.
Sid: Alright, what if the husband stays with the wife but literally doesn’t love the wife there is not a change; does the woman have to then suffer these diseases as a result of the fear that’s coming from this lack of love?
Henry: We’re assuming that he is not abusing her.
Sid: Assuming he’s not abusing her yes.
Henry: Assuming it’s just a lack of well, they’ve grown cold; that’s assuming that. In Christian marriages when we do Christian marriage and we have this we take the person back to an understanding that teaching them on separation that they cannot take that husband’s sin into their bodies. And that’s what they’re doing, they are taking another person’s sin into their bodies and then repaying…
Sid: Wait a second, what do mean taking another person’s sins into their bodies?
Henry: Well, if a person is not loving you we take that as rejection; we take that personally as if we were the problem. And then we repay that rejection by the husband with our own rejection of bitterness and fear and shame and as if they’re issues were our problem. I may have my problems; you may have your problems, they may have their problems but we don’t have the right to take other people’s problems into our lives to produce disease and we do. We take people inside all the things they say and do against us we take it personal, we go down under it; we go down in guilt, we go down in shame; we go down in bitterness; we go down in fear and that’s what I mean by taking other peoples’ stuff into you.
Sid: Okay someone’s listening to us that really identifying what could they do, obviously their praying for their spouse to change, maybe he’s not even a Christian, but what can they do in the mean time for themselves.
Henry: Well, first of all they need to pick back up their righteousness. Your righteousness is of God I lead people in a prayer to restore to me Father the joy of your salvation. The next thing is that the Bible says that they had an unbelieving husband at that level even in the area of love that they’re to win him by their chase conversation and behavior which means they are going to have pick back up their own spirituality no matter what he does or doesn’t do. The thing that we do in ministry and this powerful I know even in Christianity we always say that the Lord is your husband yet church you’re just betrothed. The marriage supper of the lamb is when you become you take on that role. Right now church and anybody listening if you’re a believer and you’re having these problems with your husband is that you’re in your Father’s house. God the Father is your Father and I think this is a missing link in ministry and our being helped programs we bring the people back into contact with God the Father in the Name of Jesus so that they may be reconciled to the Father of all spirits. And if you’re here you’re in your Father’s house. I mean did you get that? What a powerful concept. See you’re not alone anymore. The problem that we do is this because God is invisible, because we haven’t seen the fulfillment of prophetic timeline and we should be joined with Messiah; we should be joined with the Father and in our generation we here suffering and struggling with all these problems it has to be by revelation; it has to be that work of the Holy Spirit that we can take our peace concerning ourself and God. And in this there is a protection for the healing the prevention of disease.
Sid: Can we take one of these top diseases and woman’s health and have actual quick testimony of someone that did something about it and got healed.
Henry: Oh, my goodness where do I start with this one. We have a number of people that have come especially with fibromyalgia, I mean right at the top of the list fibromyalgia is easily healed when a woman which is 99% female disorder. Besides to not let the failure of men be the problem to her safety and her peace. The issue of heart disease we’ve had many people who have been healed of atrial fibrillation, they’ve been healed of mitral valve prolapse; they’ve been healed of even gird and reflux and alternative colitis, and they’ve been healed of all of these peripheral diseases coming out of one thing not feeling loved or accepted. I mean there’s probably 20 different disease testimonies that we can give you Sid from people who are healed just by taking their peace and failure of a man not to cover them and love them correctly and let God be their source.
Sid: You know as you’re speaking I’m feeling such an outpouring of God’s peace and love…
