Hodgkin’s Disease and Leukemia. Part 10 of the Healing Articles called ” The Doctor Says – The Bible Says” By Dr. Michelle Strydom MD –
Please make sure that you have read the background of cancer in general in Part 1
which has essential background knowledge. Please also read through the section on “Separation From God’s Love”.
Leukemia which is cancer of the blood and Hodgkin’s Disease which is cancer of the lymphatic system have the same roots behind them. According to Henry Wright, behind these cancers is deep rooted bitterness coming from un-resolved rejection by a father. He has dealt with numerous patients with these cancers over the years and has always found a breach between the person who has the cancer and their father.
He has never found a mother involved in the breach. Abandonment by a father, literally or emotionally is also implicated. I am not able to explain these spiritual roots on a medical level.
A weakened immune system, inherited genetic defects and possibly retroviruses play an important role in the development of leukemia. These issues were discussed in the background to cancer in general.
Separation From God’s Love:
I gained this knowledge and insight concerning separation from God’s love from the teaching of Henry Wright in a conference in South Africa.
There are people who are separated from God in that they are unable to receive His love. There are so many people who are serving God who are not even sure that He loves them. Often these are the people that had an earthly father who was harsh and abusive and now God the Father is guilty by association. Because in their hurt, God has that same horrible name “Father”, they think that He is like the other one.
Then when I start talking about God as Abba Father or Daddy or Pappa, if they
have not been healed, there is something inside them that gets as irritated as it
can be because they have never experienced that and it irritates them because
they want it. Pastor Henry Wright holds conferences all over the world where
he teaches these principles. At his conferences he asks the audience this question,
“How many of you growing up as children do not remember your earthly father saying to you these words, “I love you”? Would you raise your hands.”
What he has almost always found is that 80 to 95% of people raise their hands
because they never heard their earthly father say, “I love you.” In one audience, there were 26 different nations present and 95% of them raised their hands because they had never heard their earthly father say those words. I held a conference at Revival Centre, Bulawayo, Zimbabwe. Between 120 and 150 people attended and over 90% of them raised their hands in response to that question. This is in every church in
the world. You can walk into any church and statistically over 90% will raise their hands.
One Zimbabwean girl said to Henry Wright, “In all my entire life, even as a Christian, you are the first human being to look me in the eye and say those words, “I Love you”. I’ve never heard those words in my entire life.” If you have
a breach in your relationship with God because of the failure of your earthly father to represent Him, you may think that you are the only one. I want you to know that you are not alone in the void and the pain that runs so deep. You are not alone in the fear and rejection that has been there from your childhood.
This is in epidemic proportions in our society.
In his book called “Bringing Up Boys” James Dobson told the true story of a greeting card company who went into a prison. On mother’s day they decided to bring the men in prison cards to send out to their mothers. There was such a response from the men that they had to go back to the factory and get more cards just to keep up with the demand. Due to the success of this effort, on father’s day, they came back
to the prison with cards for the inmates to send to their fathers. Not even one man came to get a father’s day card. Many of them had no idea who their fathers were. This is a tragedy. The voice of God the Father is only recorded 3 times in the New Testament and that is at the baptism of Jesus with John (Matthew 3 v 17), at the time when Jesus was praying to the Father about being re-glorified after the resurrection and the Father’s voice is heard, “I have glorified it and I will glorify it again” and at the mount of transfigu- This one issue of an unloving earthly father accounts for well over 70 different incurable diseases.
Essential background knowledge of disease from a Biblical Perspective
(Matthew 17 v 5). Two of three times where God the Father’s voice is heard audibly, here is what is recorded about Jesus: “This is My Son, My Beloved, with Whom I am [and have always been delighted].” Other translations say, “This is my Beloved Son in Whom I am well pleased.” Ladies, forget about the fact that you didn’t hear your father say “I love you”, if you had just heard your father say these words to you, “You are my beloved daughter in whom I am well pleased,” your heart would be singing forever.
If the men had heard their father say to them, “You are my beloved son in whom I am well pleased,” their hearts would be singing forever.
This one issue of an unloving earthly father accounts for well over 70 different incurable diseases. Type 1 diabetes, multiple sclerosis, leukaemia and Non-Hodgkins lymphoma are 4 examples. When there is verbal, emotional, physical or sexual abuse attached to it or performance, perfectionism, legalism, control and force involved, the diseases that manifest are even worse. This is what is behind most cases of a severe allergy disorder called multiple chemical sensitivity and environmental illness and certain pain disorders such as fibromyalgia and irritable bowel syndrome. Statistically from the secular medical community, 75% of people with irritable bowel syndrome are females who were physically or sexually abused by their
The Bible says that pure and unblemished religion in the sight of God the Father is to take care of the widows and orphans and to keep oneself unspotted and uncontaminated from the world (James 1 v 27).
While we are talking about separation from God as the basis of many diseases, let’s define who is fatherless and who is a widow. We always think of this as the father or husband having died. However, that is not everything that there is to the fatherless and the widow. You can have the father at home and he may as well be dead for all that he brings into the spiritual wellbeing of that family. In that family, those children are fatherless. A woman can be married to a man and be a spiritual widow for all that he brings into that relationship. He doesn’t represent the Lord as a husband. He is a roommate at best, if that. I haven’t mentioned the verbal abuse and control that comes and then he commands her to submit sexually because he
has an urge.
There are many sicknesses that are over 80% female. The women are not doing too well and the problem is the husband and fathers on this planet that are not representing God the Father to their families as they should.
The Bible says that the man was not created for the woman but the woman was created for the man.
That is a horrible scripture in today’s society because the men have not taken care of the women like God intended them to. When the Bible says that the woman was created for the man, it is not in the chauvinistic sense of legalism, control, damage and victimization.
It means that the woman was created for the man as a helpmate. It doesn’t mean that the men are greater than their wives or the wives are greater than the men. It means there is an order of government. That government has been misunderstood. That government is protection, safety and love. That government is where the wife feels like she is the queen because the Bible says that the man who finds a wife, finds a good thing (Proverbs 18 v 22). The men have not treated the females like the prize that they really are.
Women were created by God to be nurtured, loved, covered, cared for, protected and made to feel safe so that she can be a helpmate and mother without fear. When the Bible says that the woman is the weaker vessel, it is not a derogatory statement that says that she is inferior. It simply means that there is something stronger than her to protect her namely a loving male and the men haven’t always done a good job of that. Part of the problem in the home is that the man doesn’t love himself. The Bible says that a man who loves his wife loves himself (Ephesians 5 v 28).
That means that if the man is not loving his wife, he doesn’t love himself – he has self-hatred.
When the men finally decide to represent God the father to their children and
represent the Lord Jesus as husband to their wives, revival is about to begin.
You see, many of the men weren’t loved by their fathers either. They didn’t have fathers that were proper role models to show them what a man of God looks like. For most of you the dinner table on Sundays was guillotine night. You came to the table with “Sit down, shut up, it’s time for judgment.” No wonder you have gastrointestinal problems such as stomach ulcers and irritable bowel syndrome because you couldn’t even sit down and have dinner in peace. The men learned to be hard from their earthly fathers.
However, God can take the hardness of your heart and give you a soft one if you ask Him to and if you allow Him to (Ezekiel 36 v 26).
It is the men who hold the keys to this planet. When the men finally decide to represent God the father to their children and represent the Lord Jesus as husband to their wives, revival is about to begin. Until the men decide to be a mirror image of heaven, as a father and a husband, we are stuck in every generation with over 70 incurable diseases. why genetically inherited diseases run through the father. To eradicate genetically inherited diseases from this planet, it would have to start with salvation and sanctification of the men. Some of the husbands and fathers need to get onto their knees before their wives and children and repent for their ways – for having opened the door for the enemy to oppress their wives and children and for their hardness of heart. If you would just do that, you would get rid of many of the diseases in your family and you would be spending less of your hard earned money on
doctors. When a father repents to his children and when a husband repents to his wife… the destiny of mankind is about to be changed.
If you are a man and you are reading this book, I’d like to take a moment to impart something to your life. As a doctor, I’d like to give you a picture of how you can change and undo the devastation of your generations. Before your wife is ever your wife, she is a daughter of God the Father. Therefore she is entitled to the honor that any daughter of God the Father deserves. If you don’t treat her right, do you really want her Father on your case? Trust me, you don’t. Before she is ever your wife, she is the betrothed wife of Christ and she is entitled to all the respect that the betrothed wife of Christ deserves. If you don’t treat her right, do you want her Husband to be on your case? Before she is ever your wife, she should be your best friend and therefore you shouldn’t need a night out with the boys. I encourage you to think this way because the Father and the Son can see you and hear you.
1 Peter 3 v 7 commands husbands to love their wives – when a man treats his wife badly, his prayers are cut off from God and nothing really works out well for him in life.
1 Peter 3 v 7: “In the same way you married men should live considerably with [your wives], with an intelligent recognition [of the marriage relation], honoring the woman as [physically] the weaker, but [realizing that you] are joint heirs of the grace (God’s unmerited favor) of life, in order that your prayers may not be hindered and cut off [Otherwise you cannot pray effectively.]”
You men are wives too you know – you are wives to Jesus. You can learn how to be a better wife to Jesus by being a better husband to your wives. Your homes need to be an oasis of peace and a safe haven for your wife and children. Your home should be your first church. Women were designed to follow a loving spiritual leader who demonstrates the Father heart of God to his family. God’s design and order for
families is that the man is the head of the woman, Christ is the Head of the man and the head of Christ is the Father.
1 Corinthians 11 v 3: “But I want you to know and realize that Christ is the Head of every man,
the head of a woman is her husband and the Head of Christ is God.”
So we have the Father, and then we have Jesus, then the man, then the wife and then the children – that is God’s divine order. If the man is passive and does not rule the home in love, the woman has no choice but to take the reins. The minute she does, Satan’s entire kingdom comes to help her and all hell is about to come in because the government and the protection is shattered. God did not create the females to hold the burden of the planet. The women are not doing too well and their diseases are many because Essential background knowledge of disease from a Biblical Perspective they have been asked to do something that God never intended them to do. He never intended the women to hold things together, He intended them to be held together by something stronger than her which is a loving male who is the king and priest of his home.
When there is a role reversal where the woman is the domineering ruler of the home and the man does not take his place as the spiritual head, you have an ungodly order and satan has every legal right to come in with confusion and all kinds of disease such as ADHD, dyslexia, colour blindness, learning disabilities, homosexuality, epilepsy and autism. These are diseases that specifically follow ungodly order in the home generationally. This has been found every single time 31. Until there is a restoration of Godly order in our homes, we are stuck with these diseases in our generations.
This is not just about healing, it is about re-establishing the kingdom of God on
the earth. This is about reordering society one person and family at a time.
This area of separation from God the Father, because of the failure of an earthly father to represent Him is big in disease. We have got to deal with it and move on and be vulnerable again without fear. We need to get our warped image of God the Father sorted out and get to know His character for Who He is as described in His Word.
Man made religion paints the image of a condemning God who is a mean old man sitting on the edge of His throne waiting to teach us a lesson as soon as we step out of line. However, that is not the image and character of God that the Bible portrays. God is a loving God. He is full of compassion, slow to anger and abounding in loving kindness. His mercy is new every morning and His mercy endures forever. His faithfulness reaches to the skies! God is not sitting on the edge of His Throne waiting for an opportunity to punish you – He is earnestly waiting for an opportunity to bless you and to be gracious to you.
This is a word for those of you who are struggling with a breach in relationship between you and God the Father: Isaiah 30 v 18: “And therefore the Lord [earnestly] waits [expecting, looking and longing] to be gracious to you; and therefore He lifts Himself up, that He may have mercy on you and show loving kindness to you. For the Lord is a God of justice. Blessed (happy, fortunate, to be envied) are all those who [earnestly] wait for Him, who expect and look and long for Him [for His victory, His favor, His love, His peace, His joy, and His matchless, unbroken companionship!]”
That is one of my favorite scriptures. If you will take a moment to think about it, it will bring you tremendous hope. This scripture reveals a lot to you about the character of your God. For those of you who have difficulty in identifying with the Father, I hope that this will increase your faith and enable you to approach Him as your Daddy. God is literally sitting on the edge of His seat, looking for an opportunity to bless you, to be gracious to you, to show you mercy and loving kindness.
Psalm 36 v 5: “Your mercy and loving kindness O Lord, extend to the skies, and Your faithfulness to the clouds.”
Psalm 103 v 8 – 9: “The Lord is merciful and gracious, slow to anger and plenteous in mercy and loving-kindness. He will not always chide or be contending, neither will He keep His anger forever or hold a grudge”
Psalm 136 v 1: “Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; For His mercy and loving kindness endures forever!” The rest of this Psalm goes on to say that “God’s mercy endures forever” 26 times. If God tells you that His mercy endures forever 26 times, are you going to finally get the message?
This next scripture reveals another aspect of God’s character and that is that He is love. 1 John 4 v 15 – 19: “15Anyone who confesses (acknowledges, owns) that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides (lives, makes His home) in him and he [abides, lives, makes his home] in God. 16 And we know (understand, recognize, are conscious of, by observation and by experience) and believe (ad- This is not just about
healing, it is about re-establishing the kingdom of God on the earth.
here to and put faith in and rely on) the love God cherishes for us. God is love, and he who dwells and continues in love dwells and continues in God, God dwells and continues in him. 17In this [union and communion with Him] love is brought to completion and attains perfection with us, that we may have confidence for the day of judgment [with assurance and boldness to face Him], because as He is, so are we in this world. 18There is no fear in love [dread does not exist], but full grown
(complete, perfect) love turns fear out of the doors and expels every trace of terror! For fear brings with it the thought of punishment, and [so] he who is afraid has not reached the full maturity of love [is not yet grown into love’s complete perfection]. 19We love Him, because He first loved us.”
If you want to know more about God’s character, go and study Jesus in the Bible because Jesus said “If you have seen Me, you have seen the Father” (John 12 v 45). Jesus said I’ve come to show you the Father.
When Jesus died on the cross the veil was torn in two and now you can fearlessly and confidently and boldly approach the Father’s Throne!
Hebrews 4 v 16: “Let us then fearlessly and confidently and boldly draw near to His throne of grace (the throne of God’s unmerited favor to us sinners), that we may receive mercy [for our failures] and find grace to help in good time for every need [appropriate help and well-timed help, coming just when we need it].”
This is an important teaching for some of you because you have been avoiding the Father like the plague. And if you do ever speak to Him in prayer, you approach Him as though He is about to strike you with a lightning bolt. Here is a question for you – Where is the Father? He is in Heaven. Where is Jesus? At the Father’s right hand. Where is Heaven? Up! So why do you look down when you pray? You may say “Well
that is just respect” – no man made religion taught you that. I want to reintroduce you to your Father. I want you to stop avoiding Him. I want you to come boldly before His Throne.
Do you know what boldly is? You crash on in because He’s your Daddy and you
want to talk to Him! Barge in! You are a son or daughter of God by faith and
you can boldly approach His throne in time of need! He’s your Father – go bug
Him! Talk to Him! All prayer is, is conversation with your heavenly Father. You
don’t have to make it so super-spiritual. I have been in prayer meetings where a
person has prayed and I have heard every name of God, Father, Lord, Lord Jesus,
God, Father, Father God, God, God, Jesus after every second or third word…it’s time to just be real and just be you with your Daddy. When you approach your Pappa when you pray, you can say, “Hello Father, I know You – You are love, You are full of compassion, abounding in mercy and loving kindness. Your mercy is new every morning and Your mercy endures forever. You sent Your Son to die for My sins. I love you Daddy – You’re my Pappa…I want to ask You something…” And away you go!
Romans 8 v 15 – 16; “For [the Spirit which] you have now received [is] not a spirit of slavery to put you once more into the bondage of fear, You have received the Spirit of adoption [the Spirit producing son-ship] in [the bliss of] which we cry, Abba (Father)! Father! The Spirit Himself [thus] testifies together with our own spirit [assuring us] that we are children of God.”
There are three main aspects of contact with God by faith and that is petition, worship and fellowship.
You can fellowship with God the Father, Jesus and the Holy Spirit but when it comes to petition, you need to speak to the Father and that is where the breakdown comes. Many people just pray to God. Well, Who is God? They say, “Just God”. Are you talking to God the Father, Jesus or the Holy Spirit? Does it matter?
Yes it does. I want you to stop avoiding the Father in your prayer time. I’m going to show you why it is important Who you pray to when you ask for something, including healing.
John 16 v 23 – 27: “23And when that time comes (Jesus was talking about the time when He would go back to the Father in Heaven after His resurrection), you will ask nothing of Me [you will need to ask Me no questions]. I assure you, most solemnly I tell you, that my Father will grant you whatever Come boldly before His Throne…
crash on in because He’s your Daddy.
Essential background knowledge of disease from a Biblical Perspective you ask in My Name…24Up to this time you have not asked a [single] thing in My Name [as presenting
all that I AM]; but now ask and keep on asking and you will receive, so that your joy (gladness, delight) may be full and complete. 25…but I shall tell you about the Father in plain words and openly (without reserve). 26At that time you will ask (pray) in my Name; and I am not saying that I will ask the Father on your behalf [for it will be unnecessary].”
Please note in this next verse what it says – the Great, Almighty, Awesome, Indescribable God Who is your Father says that He loves you! “27For the Father Himself [tenderly] loves you because you have loved Me and have believed that I came from the Father.”
In a nutshell, John 16 v 23 – 27 is telling you to pray to the Father in Jesus’ Name. So quit praying to Jesus because He is not going to answer you – He is not going to be in rebellion to His own Word. You can fellowship with Jesus but when you want something, including healing – you go to your Father. If you read Acts 2 v 22 and Acts 4 v 24 – 30 you will see that it was actually the Father that healed through Jesus and through the disciples.
I need to point this out to you because I need to teach you that when you pray,
you ask the Father to heal and deliver you in the Name of Jesus.
The next level of separation that we’re going to discuss where disease is
given the opportunity to come in is separation from yourself through a poor
self-image, low self-esteem and self-hatred. Developing a healthy self-image
starts with knowing who we are in Christ and learning to see ourselves as God
sees us. Therefore, it is necessary to get our image of God straightened out because how can you develop a good self-image if your image of God is that He is harsh, mean and condemning? Until this issue of the father is dealt with, it just sits there and simmers and keeps us breached from God the Father, it keeps us breached from ourselves and from others because we find it so difficult to give and receive love.
If you are separated from God and unable to identify with Him as your Father because of a harsh and abusive earthly father, you need ministry. At conferences where I teach this material, I deal with it in a way that I have learnt from Henry Wright. I get the pastors and elders in church (who are elderly men or father figures) to minister to each of the women and men at the conference individually who needed healing in this area. These men stand in the place of their earthly fathers and say to them these words:
“On behalf of the father that did not, could not, would not or maybe didn’t know how to tell you that he loved you, I your brother will take responsibility for your heart this day. On behalf of that father will you forgive me for not telling you that I love you? I’m so sorry for the silence and the junk that would’ve injured you and confused you and left you stranded and afraid on the inside when you needed him so much. So in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ I release you from this fear and this confusion and this pain. This day you are going to hear these words for your heart, “I love you. I’m so glad you were born. I’m proud of you and you’re a good daughter (or son). Let that pain go in Jesus Name.” After that the men hugged the person if he/she was comfortable with that and God did the rest as the
fountains of the deep broke forth and the tears flowed as healing began. During ministry on this level, it is very moving and overwhelming to see how these people cry and sob in the grief and hurt because of the loss of the love of a father.
Ultimately healing in this area has to begin with learning to receive God the Father’s love. As you begin your journey of healing, I recommend that you spend as much time with God as you can. Sit at His feet and enjoy fellowship in His presence. You need to get to know the Father more.
Exodus 33 v 13 – 14: “Father show me Your ways, that I may know You [progressively become more deeply and intimately acquainted with You, perceiving and recognizing and understanding You more strongly and clearly]. And the Lord said, My Presence shall go with you and I will give you rest.”
When you pray, you ask the Father to heal and deliver you in the Name of Jesus.
The only way you get to know somebody is to spend time with them. In getting to know Him, His love for you will become more than just a mental concept – you will come to know Him and His overwhelming and intense love for you through experience. I encourage you to take a hold of this scripture and make it a prayer of your heart: Ephesians 3 v 14 – 20: “Father, I ask You to grant me out of the rich treasury of
Your glory to be strengthened and reinforced with mighty power in my inner man by the Holy Spirit [Himself indwelling in my innermost being and personality]. May Christ through my faith [actually] dwell (settle down, abide, make His permanent home) in my heart! May I be rooted deep in love and founded securely on love, that I may have the power and be strong to apprehend and grasp with all the saints [God’s devoted people, the experience of that love], what is the breadth and length
and height and depth [of it]; [That I may really come] to know [practically through experience for myself] the love of Christ, which far surpasses mere knowledge [without experience]; that I may be filled [through all my being] with all the fullness of God [may have the richest measure of the divine Presence, and become a body wholly filled and flooded with God Himself]! Father, You by Your power that is at work within me are able to [carry out Your purpose and] do superabundantly,
far over and above all that I [dare] ask or think [infinitely beyond my highest prayers, desires, thoughts, hopes or dreams].”
Each of these chapters that I refer you to bring to light an issue that needs to be dealt with in order to defeat cancer. I recommend that you just deal with it one issue at a time. It is like peeling an onion – remove one layer at a time and when you get to the centre, the flavor (your healing) will be released.
1. The Bible says that when we hate our brother, even when we speak against our brother with our tongue, we are a murderer (1 John 3 v 15). Under the law the penalty of murder was death. Now we can understand why the spirit of death is on the loose in cancer. If you want to get rid of cancer, it is essential that you get rid of the un-forgiveness and bitterness in your life.
2. You have got to get fear, anxiety and stress out of your life – and that includes strife!
3. There are many types of cancer associated with varying degrees of self-hatred and guilt. Building a healthy self-esteem comes from knowing who you are in Christ and placing your identity and sense of self worth in Him. You need to see yourself as God sees you.
4. In getting rid of bitterness, fear, anxiety, stress and/or a low self-esteem, guilt and self-hatred out of your thought life, you need to apply the 10 principles in the chapter on page 544. These principles are critically important in dealing with cancer – please pay very close attention to them.
5. Remember that you also need to deal with the genetically inherited component of cancer by repenting for the sins of your fathers.
6. Sometimes with cancer you need to be prepared to remove viruses (spirits of infirmity), the spirit of death and the spirit of fear.
recommend that you deal with this issue with the help of a Pastor or somebody who is in spiritual authority over you. The spirit of fear, the spirit of infirmity and the spirit of death needs to be cast out.
7. There are some organs and body tissue that are irreversibly damaged by cancer. This damaged tissue and the genetic defects causing cancer need to be ministered to by operating in the gift of miracles.
You need to speak a creative miracle into being where in Jesus’ Name you need to command that body tissue and the genes to be made whole and perfect just as God created it from the foundation of the world. This is explained in more detail on page 123 under the heading “You Can’t Always Do It Alone”.
8. It is also important for you to read through the chapter called “When It’s Time To Kick The Bucket”. This is because a limited life span is associated with the diagnosis of cancer and you need to understand why your time on earth is not yet up and even if it is, God does not need a disease to get you to heaven.
Finally – Pray with Me
After reading these chapters that I have referred you to, I encourage you to speak out the following in faith and with authority:
“In Jesus Name I take authority over the spirit of fear that came in through a breech in my relationships, I take authority over the spirits of bitterness, the spirit of infirmity and the spirit of death. I break your power and I command you to go and to be cast out of my life and the generations in my family in the Name of Jesus! I sever the lifeline to this tumor which is the blood vessels that it’s feeding on to supply itself – I command it to dry up and dissolve in the Name of Jesus! I release myself from sadness and despair. I take authority over the spirit of heaviness that has attached itself to me and break its power, in the Name of Jesus – be gone! Father I ask you to heal my broken heart (Isaiah 61 v 1) and I open my heart to receive your joy and perfect love which casts out all fear (1 John 4 v 18). All the insecurities and the fears that are causing cortisol to be released – be gone in Jesus Name! I speak a blood transfusion into my bone marrow. I command my immune system and interleukin 2 to be restored and come back to full strength. I give my immune system and interleukin 2 an assignment to identify every single cancer cell and go eat it and do not stop until you’re done. In Jesus Name, Amen!”
