years old with Heart Disease - DOCTORS SAY THERE IS NO CURE
CHRIST HEALED ME OF HEART DISEASE
night at the age of 17, while watching TV at our neighbor's house I had a
traumatic experience. As I rose to leave, suddenly I had difficulty
to breathe and collapsed on the floor, unconscious.
soon revived and
seemed okay, but I did not understand what had happened. Being young,
however, and then having no further symptoms, I never thought about going
to a doctor.
started my first day on a job in Nelson, B.C. at the age of 22. While
climbing a slight incline I started to faint, so I sat down immediately
until I felt better.
1976, at the age of 30, I was visiting a Christian friend in Kamloops,
B.C. After a 2 hour visit, I stood up to leave when all of a sudden I felt
faint and sat down immediately. After a few minutes, I felt fine.
the first time in my life however, I was now becoming suspicious that I
had a heart problem. I then called the Royal Inland Hospital in Kamloops
and scheduled a stress test for the following week.
I took the stress test, I went as hard and as long as I possibly could. I
wanted to find the source of my problems.
30 YEARS OF AGE I HAD A MAJOR HEART ATTACK
I got off the treadmill, the technician laughed and said that there was
certainly nothing wrong with my heart. Just as he was about to disconnect
the electrodes from my chest, I experienced shortness of breath and had a
major heart attack.
heart slowed up and I went into unconsciousness. Doctor Dennis
Karpiak happened to be going by and I was rushed to the intensive care. In
the meantime, I regained consciousness, but the heart attack had left me
weak as a kitten, with almost no strength at all.
x-rayed me and determined I had some form of a heart defect. My
understanding is that the flesh was out of proper position in my heart. I
had heart disease.
HAD AN ABNORMAL HEART AND THERE WAS NO TREATMENT & NO CURE
the hospital they were kind to me, but I received no medical attention in
the form of pills or surgery. After a few days I was sent home. There was
no hope for me! I was diagnosed with an abnormal heart, heart
disease and there was no cure.

While in the hospital, an older man occupying the bed across from me,

represent life and not death and I refuse to allow this man to die in my
Holy Spirit anointed me and I prayed quietly in tongues. God gave me the
interpretation stating that by the resurrection power of Jesus Christ this
man would be raised from the dead and healed from all brain damage
suffered from heart attacks in the past.
SAT UP IMMEDIATELY AND SHOCKED THE STAFF. When I was taken to another room
he waved to me and his face glowed with the Holy Spirit. After being home
from the hospital about 4 Ĺ weeks, I was still very, very weak
physically. I could do almost nothing.
morning while I was all alone in my bedroom, I prayed and asked Jesus
Christ to heal me the way he healed people when he walked on the earth!
The prayer came from my heart and lips and divine faith came from God, the
Holy Spirit and I was healed instantly! Praise the Name of Jesus Christ
forever, for His love.

Paulís Hospital in Vancouver had my heart completely checked out. He
gave me a complete clean bill of health. I told Dr. Peres that hearts
don't just heal themselves, so would he please tell me what happened. He
said, "I don't know. All I know is that you can do anything you want

DOCTOR ANSWERS QUESTIONS ON FAITH HEALING
Dr. A. Wagenaar of Hilversum, Holland
Dr. Wagenaar, will you tell us what your position is in the field of
"I have been medical superintendent in the
Orchidee Hospital, Hilversum, for the last six years. Before that I was a
family doctor for 23 years in Dordrecht."
Do you believe in
miracles of healing?
"Of course! In my practice as a family doctor I have seen many
miracles take place."
When is healing
"When it is not the result of medical
Can a miracle not be
explained away psychologically?
"No, that is not to be thought of. Just
as you cannot explain away the miracles of the New Testament.
physician knows that spontaneous miracles do occur. You will be interested
to know that spontaneous hearings have even been reported in patients who
suffer from cancer. This has been publicized several times in medical
journals. Medical science has admitted that miracles do occur after the
prayer of faith."
You said that you have
seen miracles occur in your practice. Could you give us an example?
"Yes, in Dordrecht I had a very busy practice.
A family doctor in the course of his practice meets many people who are in
urgent need of medical help and he does all he can to help them.
will tell you about one patient. He used to play music in bars and was
inclined to treat life lightly. He needed an operation and I gave him a
card for the hospital. But before he was to be operated on I asked him to
go with me to one of Ev. Johan Maasbach's big meetings. He agreed and,
during the meeting, concentrated on God. When he went later to check in
for the operation the surgeon said, You can go home, we are not going to
operate on you, you are totally healed!"
Have you advised other
people too to go to Johan Maasbach's meetings?
"Yes, many! Generally after an
introductory talk and often after I have spoken to one of the elders of
the church; I asked the elder to visit my patient and, so to speak, break
the ice. I know that Br. Maasbach sends the patient on to the Heavenly
Doctor who can do more than all the branches of science combined.
and above those I have mentioned I have sent many others to Br. Maasbach
after they had been to consult me. I have seen them saved in the meeting
and healed as well. I am so glad that in this time when one church after
another is being broken down there are still people who let their voices
be heard more than ever. We urgently need more men like Johan Maasbach.
is a man who has preached for many years that sickness usually comes from
within - from the heart of man - and is often the result of hate, envy,
grudges and bitterness. Now medical science too admits that many diseases
are a result of inner tensions!"
You believe then that
Br. Maasbach is not being medically irresponsible in what he preaches?
"No indeed! He preaches that people who come
forward for healing must bring not only their sins but also their cares
and all their inner problems to God. That is a healing truth. That is
How did you yourself
come to faith in Christ?
"I will tell you! When I was a young man of 23
1 almost drowned. I was trying to save a woman who had fallen into the
water and it nearly resulted in my own death. However, after fighting for
my life and finally reaching dry land, I was a new man. I knew that I had
reached a spiritual turning point. God had let me live!"
What do you think about
certain doctors who have seen miracles with their own eyes and still
refuse to believe?
"I have met people who have had their healing
confirmed by many people and who afterwards went to various doctors to
demonstrate their hea5;ng only to be rejected. I must assume that these
doctors are totally blind to God's existence..
is not however a problem peculiar to medical science; you know as well as
I do that many ministers, preachers and priests; are just as blind to the
message of divine heating."
Doctor, do you often
speak to your patients about faith in Jesus Christ?
"I always do so when I feel so guided. When you
know that, medically speaking, there is no cure possible then - at least
this is how it is for me - you can only speak a positive word, the Word of

tensions to the Lord. Only He, Jesus Christ, can give that desperately
Do you think that later
a medical cure may be found for certain illnesses which can now only be
cured by a miracle?
"If I think of cancer, I know that man is hard
at work to find a cure. This is the prediction and hope of everyone
working in that field. However they have not yet found a cure. And should
a medical cure be found there will still be other incurable
Finally doctor, do you
consider that personal faith in Jesus Christ is of importance to science?
"Very important!! You know that science has
gone out on a limb in believing that man is descended from apes. Science
is still trying to find the missing link!! The friction between faith and
science is that when man comes to faith he can no longer accept such
theories as that of evolution.
in Jesus Christ is of the utmost importance for all, including those
engaged in the pursuit of scientific knowledge."
