Healing of the Pain in the Rib Bone
Immediately after finishing the healing worship last month (June 17), I felt the Lord urging me saying, “There is one more thing to say.” So I decided to share Emi Fukuda’s testimony right there though the worship was already over. That was about the healing of pain in the rib bone that took place in her.
She has a terminal thymic cancer. The day before the Pentecost worship on May 20, due to the pain in the body she couldn’t sleep at night.
Then in the Pentecost worship, she heard the healing prayer, “The Lord said to the one with cancer, ‘Cancer praises together. Cancer has been healed. So I will liberate you from the fear and pain.’” The moment she heard it, she thought, “That’s for me!” and accepted the healing. Then, the pain of cancer was completely gone.
Let me share the testimony she wrote:
In this way my pain was taken away and I was delighted. However, on the evening of June 12, the day of the US-North Korea summit, a severe pain attacked me as if my left breast was thrust by a broken rib bone. I agonized with excruciating pain.
Since the pain lasted long, I thought of putting on a CD of Isaiah 53. The beginning of the CD was Pastor Peter’s scripture reading.
Who has believed our message? And to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed? . . .
The gentle and warm resounding of the scripture enveloped me, and I felt as if floating in the air. I had never had such an experience. Before I knew, I found myself coming back to the actual world from the cosmic space of love. When I came back to my senses, I noticed that the terrible pain was gone somewhere. I was stunned and motionless for a while, but when I experimentally moved my body a little, there was no pain. What an amazing healing! I could not stop my tears with my nose running.
I was reminded that the Lord had kept on pouring tremendous healing on me!
I am grateful from all my heart for the love of the cross. The Lord Jesus loves us so much that He gave up His own life for us. I will never forget or nullify His love.
(from “Cancer Praises Together” by Emi Fukuda in the July issue of "The Vision")
“I will never forget or nullify His love.”
I believe this is nothing but Emi’s confession that she loves the Lord. Whatever may happen, I will never forget to give thanks to the Lord.
There must have been someone who had the same pain, and He wanted me to tell the person that the healing was done on him. I thought that was why the Lord urged me saying, “There is one more thing to say.”
And indeed there was such a person, I later knew.
Hearing Emi’s testimony, Yumiko Tanaka, who joined our on-line worship in Gifu, received an amazing healing. Here I would like to share with you a testimony I received from her after that worship.
I Love the Lord!
I was surprised at the healing of the pain in the rib bone mentioned when the healing worship was finished, and in gratitude I prayed from the bottom of my heart, “I love the Lord.”
On the night of June 16, when the date was about to turn from Saturday to Sunday, I had pain in the lower back, so I asked my husband to give me a massage. Then during the massage I heard two cracking sounds. A rib bone near the collarbone seemed to have been broken. I felt a shooting pain, and just moving my left hand or turning my neck to the left caused a severe pain. The pain was unbearable whether I lied or sat. I could not even sing praise.
So I decided to play the praise CD “Christe Eleison” and lied down. Then before I knew, I fell asleep and got a good night’s sleep.
When I woke up, however, the pain came back. My granddaughter applied a compress on my back, which eased the pain a little. I expected that it would be healed in the healing worship of the following day, though I was far from the Church of the Wind, worshipping through the on-line broadcasting.
In the worship Mitsuko said, “The pain in the lower back comes from sorrow,” and I thought it was about me. I desperately prayed in my heart, “Please make her mention the healing of the pain in the rib bone near the collarbone.”
Then as if Mitsuko had heard my prayer, she said, “Healing is done in all things even if I didn’t mention,” and the healing prayer was over.
Although I understood it well, I was disappointed. Still I wished her to speak something about it after the worship.
Then to my great amazement, after the worship Mitsuko indeed started speaking the healing of the pain in the rib bone. Surprisingly the message of God was just for me!
Mitsuko further said, “There must be someone who has the same pain. I believe the Lord told me, ‘There is one more thing to say,’ because He wanted me to tell the person that the healing is surely done.”
Last March, the Lord said to me, “Live, Yumiko,” and I decided to live for the sake of the Lord. Nevertheless, I was using all my time and energy for my family and unable to respond to His will. In such a situation, thinking it was not good, I was agonized and captured in sorrow.
Now I confess, “I love the Lord. I love the Lord.”
I used to play the CD of Isaiah 53 every day, but I was so busy that I did not even do it. The Lord again saved me out of the awful state. The Holy Spirit kept pouring praise on me. I am so grateful! The pain in my rib bone was healed and completely gone.
