MY INVISIBLE ILLNESS OF CONCUSSION INJURY IS MORE REAL THAN YOUR IMAGINARY MEDICAL EXPERTISE OF HEALING.
Meet four members of the Concussion Injury Group, a band of advocates so determined they risk taxing their personal health, short-term, for the end game of better care for others.
Three of the four lost top career positions due to sudden, and freak brain injury. A fourth had her career path altered but is about to graduate, thanks to home-schooling and the online courses of Carleton University.
Jane Clark, 55, was a leading patent litigation lawyer. She kept company with scientists from around the globe, held senior management positions, did volunteer work in the community and sang in the office band. Five years ago, her life was forever altered by a simple slip on ice.
“I lived life large,” Clark says. “Now it’s very much about living small.”
Friday, Clark leaned heavily on the arm of her grown son, Alex, as she left the building.
Natalia Rybczynski, 46, holds a PhD in biological anthropology and anatomy from Duke University. She was a researcher at the Museum of Nature and a professor at Carleton University. Her passion was leading paleontology expeditions to the High Arctic. Along the trail she blazed, Natalia discovered new fossil mammals and was featured in scientific journals, including the journal Nature. In 2015 she was named one of Canada’s top explorers.

Jesus was known to perform miracles.
FROM A NON-CHRISTIAN SOURCE:
Celsus was a 2nd-century Greek philosopher and a fierce opponent of Christianity. In what is known to be the first comprehensive intellectual attack on Christianity, he tried to resolve why Jesus was able to perform miracles. The story is wild—but the main point is that by trying to explain away the miracles of Jesus, he is actually affirming that they happened:
Jesus, on account of his poverty, was hired out to go to Egypt. While there he acquired certain powers which Egyptians pride them on possessing. He returned home highly elated at possessing these powers, and on the strength of them gave himself out to be a god. Origen, Contra Celsum, 1.28
People who experience healing learn that their healing was possible because of what happened 2000 years ago: that by Jesus’ stripes (flogging) and according to the Word, they have been healed. “He took up our infirmities and bore our diseases.” Matthew 8:14 They acted upon this Word and ignored what the body was telling them that the symptoms and pain was still there. They learned to walk by Bible faith.
They would continue to say,” I am healed”, even though every symptom was still present. They would continue to praise and thank God for their healing until the healing took place. This type of faith that disregards the symptoms and other people’s cynicism is a precondition to one’s healing.
Faith leaves no doubts about God’s power to heal and about His desire to heal. In some cases, a person without faith is healed; God may wish to help these people to receive faith, which they don’t have.
In some cases, a cure comes more slowly. This was evident in cases where someone possessed a strong faith. The slower cure presented that person with an opportunity to grow closer to God by sharing His Passion on the Cross.
We are not worried about your present behavior. It is more important to change your beliefs about who God is and who you are in Christ.
Some don’t understand the dramatic changes which occur in themselves the moment they trust in God. Because you are in Christ, every one of these characteristics are true of you:
I have been rescued from the domain of Satan’s rule and transferred to the kingdom of Christ. Colossians 1:13
I am firmly rooted in Christ and am now being built up in Him. Colossians 2:7
I have been given a Spirit of power, love, and self-discipline. 2 Timothy 1:7
I have been given precious and magnificent promises by God, by which I am a partaker of God’s divine nature. 2 Peter 1:4
I have the right to come boldly before the throne of God to receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need. Hebrews 4:16
I am chosen and appointed by Christ to bear His fruit. John 15:16
I am a member of Christ’s body. 1 Corinthians 12:27
I am united to the Lord and am one spirit with Him. 1 Corinthians 6:17
I am a new creation. 2 Corinthians 5:17
I am a saint. 1 Corinthians 1:2
I am an heir of God since I am a son (daughter) of God. Galatians 4:6,7
I am a fellow citizen with the rest of God’s family. Ephesians 2:19
I am chosen of God, holy and dearly loved. Colossians 3:12
I am member of the chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for God’s own possession. 1 Peter 2:9,10
I am born of God, and the evil one — the devil– cannot touch me. 1 John 5:18
I have received the Spirit of God into my life that I might know the things freely given to me by God. 1 Corinthians 2:12
Since I have died, I no longer live for myself, but for Christ. 2 Corinthians 5:14,15
I have been crucified with Christ, and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me. The life I am now living is Christ’s life. Galatians 2:20
I have been chosen in Christ before the foundation of the world to be holy, and I am without blame before Him. Ephesians 1:4
I have been redeemed and forgiven, and I am a recipient of His lavish grace. Ephesians 1:6-8
I have direct access to God through the Spirit. Ephesians 2:18
I have to say I have never felt closer to God than when I am going through a hard time. His love never fails. He has truly gone above and beyond in His provision for us. I feel like He has picked us up from where we were in life and, although we have had scary times, He has now set us upon a rock and given us more than we deserve. God is good ALL the time. Sometimes you have to look for the blessing in the situation but it IS there!! TRUST HIM ALWAYS!!
Are there any physical signs to know you are being healed?
Father Francis MacNutt stated in his book Healing that “Some people experience the same electrical transfer of power, sometimes a like a gentle electric current, sometimes like a flow of warmth. Whatever it is, it is sometimes connected with healing. It is almost like a transfer of life”. (182)
The first way of appropriating faith is the laying on of hands by a “faith healer”. Immediately after prayers the healer who is very connected with Jesus, will usually ask one to check out the healing by doing something that one was not able to do before. If there are few signs of healing, a Prayer of Deliverance is needed in order to eliminate any obstacles.
An accompanying prayer of deliverance, said by a sinless Born Again Christian, usually results with a feeling of a complete sense of peace. This gives assurance that God is working.

BILLIONS OF CHRISTIANS CAN’ T ALL BE WRONG!
Christianity is not a philosophy, but it is a relationship with God, your Creator, in Christ TODAY. It is not knowledge of abstract principles.
HOW DO WE KNOW THIS?
Some Christian disciples use deliverance to deliver away evil spirits influencing people. These evil spirits cause depression, addictions and illness through all forms of stress.
2. COMPLETE SENSE OF PEACE?
After you have been delivered from evil influences, you will have a definite physical experience of a complete sense of peace.
Once you experience a physical sense of peace because of deliverance, you know that you will be healed. This helps you build up your faith, which is very crucial: No faith! No healing!
Some Christian disciples have the gift of healing. Only the Name of Jesus Christ makes healing and deliverance possible.
THE WHOLE FAMILY BENEFITS
In the end, one Christian conversion will benefit the whole family. The gifts of the Holy Spirit of healing and deliverance will help the whole family. A prayer of deliverance of evil spirits will leave any member of the family with a complete sense of peace immediately. A prayer of healing from a Christian disciple produces 80% healing. The remaining healing comes from continued prayer of praise and thanksgiving until all the healing is complete. This healing comes from the Holy Spirit through the power in the Name of Jesus Christ. No other god or deity or doctor uses this power. This proves the TRUTH OF CHRISTIANITY.
God divinely inspired the BIBLE . How do we know? Each of eight accurate predictions shows a high probability mathematically. The probability of one individual fulfilling eight prophecies have odds of 1 in 10 17 (1 in 100,000,000,000,000,000). Jesus Christ fulfilled all prophecies, therefore the Bible MUST BE TRUE.
The Old Testament indicates another 40 astonishing predictions.
Christianity experiences stunning growth—from approximately 3.8 million adherents in China in 1956 to an estimated 87 to 100 million Christians today.
HOW IS JESUS STILL ALIVE TODAY?
Jesus is alive today! He heals today (through His followers) and in many cases it is realized immediately. How else can you explain the explosion of Christianity, the world’s largest religion, on earth: 2.2 billion adherents, nearly a third (31 percent) of all 6.9 billion people on Earth.
Christians know and feel His Presence; they communicate with Him personally; Christian prayers are always answered.
This author has been given the Gift of Healing only because he is a Christian Lay Missionary, who travels two to three places every year. On his last trip to Columbia he successfully transferred his Gift to his Spanish translators, who were able to heal as he did. He has healed Muslims to their great surprise.
He also delivers away evil spirits along with their healing. All those who are delivered from evil spirits feel a complete physical sense of peace.
DREAMS AND VISIONS
God can give a message to those non-Christians to change their heart. God knows faith will be developed eventually. God will come to you in the form of dreams or visions. So be sensitive to any dreams or visions, when you ask God for it earnestly.
