Last month Ashers dad told him about hezikiah who in Isaiah 38 was told he had 15 more years after first being given a proclamation of death.
Asher said 'lets hold on to that'.
Then on friday my stepfather read 2 Kings 20 which is the same story. Later he went to church and the Big Bible was open at Isaiah 38 which he had not known of. he was suprised to see the same story and wanted to check it when he got home but forgot which chapters it was. he opened the Bible and Isaiah 38 fell open.
He prayed about this and really felt God was speaking to us through these verses and so he phoned us. I was glad to be able to tell him ashers dad had also held onto these verses.
my stepfather felt it was in the asking and the way Hezikiah had asked for healing. I did not feel this was true but that the verses were for Asher I hoped and wondered in what way.
Then came another call. My mum had been praying also and they felt it was important to follow up on the action that Isaiah had given Hezekiah to do. He was told to wear a garland of figs. well we have not made a garland of figs but they came over and we prayed and opened a bottle of 'syrup of figs'. Mum and Chris thought this was a symbolic gesture But I felt often the Bible tells us of the things people did that were medical treatments and so we put the syrup on a tissue and put it directly on the newest tumor that we can see which has been growing really steadily over the last week or two.
So far since last night I can say I think it really has worked. It is less red and less swollen. i looked online and found that figs are roasted, blended and then placed on blisters and tumors in many counties. How amazing. It is also used as a mouth wash for alcers. I should not be amazed but I am excited.
