Don't Be a Fool!

June 19, 2018

Fools because of their transgression, and because of their iniquities, are afflicted. Their soul abhorreth all manner of meat; and they draw near unto the gates of death. Then they cry unto the Lord in their trouble, and he saveth them out of their distresses.
(Ps. 107:17-19)
I remember praying for a sixteen-year-old girl who had a venereal disease. Now when she came up to the prayer line, I didn't know anything about her. I found out later that at the age of fifteen, she got involved with a gang.

Now she was saved and filled with the Holy Ghost, but she had gotten involved in all kinds of sin and sexual immorality. At sixteen, the doctors wanted to take out all her female organs. They were damaged. Of course, if those organs were removed, she could never become a mother.

As she stood in the prayer line, the Spirit of God said to me, "Fools, because of their iniquities, because of their transgressions, are afflicted. Say to her, 'Confess, "I'm that fool," and you'll be healed.'"

So I just spoke that out to her. I said, "The Bible says that fools, because of their iniquities and transgression, are afflicted. Confess that you are that fool and you'll be healed."

I never laid hands on her. She threw her hands up and said, "I'm that fool," over and over again. She was instantly healed and never had to have that operation. In the process of time, she got married and became a mother.

Even since I've been saved, I've had to go to God and say, "I've been a fool. I acted foolishly. Forgive me." And, thank God, He did. If you've never done that, you probably need to start right now.

Father God, I have acted foolishly. I ask You to forgive me and cleanse me from all unrighteousness. Thank You.
