Sid: My guest has to be red hot for the Messiah because she had a disease that is a death sentence and she is one of the testimonies in the book that we are featuring this week called “Anointing for Healing.” And the thing that I love about this book is that all of these testimonies are so well documented and researched. All of these miracles and it’s the type of book that if you need a faith injection, I mean I’m amazed that how these authors got such unusual testimonies, I mean a child with autism was totally healed. A pianist with Multiple Sclerosis totally healed, a young man with one of rarest and the deadliest forms of Leukemia, actually it is so rare it comes from Africa totally healed. And my guest right now is Wendy Moore, I’m speaking to her at home in Flint, Michigan. And Wendy, “You were a paramedic so that means you had to be a pretty active person, why did you feel that you had to go to a neurologist?”
Wendy: Well Sid, I started experiencing some weakness in my legs that for a twenty-seven year old young active woman, wife & mother that I was was just not normal. And I could sense that something wasn’t right with me, I was having trouble lifting patients; I was tripping, falling a lot and so after a battery of tests from a neurologist locally here in Flint they sent me down to the University of Michigan a hospital in Anne Arbor. And the University of Michigan is one of the only fourteen ALS centers in the country so they specialize in this disease and after they ruled out several other neurological diseases they did an EMT on me and it actually had showed nerve death within fourteen days that the tests were performed. So that is how they make the diagnosis of ALS.
Sid: So when you found out what you had wrong, Lou Gehrig’s disease or ALS what did the doctor prepare you for?
Wendy: Well, I was with my husband and my Mom and Dad and they came into the room and I wasn’t expecting to be told that I had any kind of disease. You know I thought be something that they could go in and fix, maybe I had something wrong with my back you know, I wasn’t sure. But they come in and she “Wendy, the disease that you have is ALS or you may better know it as Lou Gehrig’s disease. Then, I just broke down crying because they were telling me I had a disease and I asked them, I said, “Can you tell me, you know am I going to die?” And she said, “Do you really, you know do you really want to know?” I said “Yes, I do.” I had a baby that was four weeks old; I had my son four weeks earlier. My son was born March 15th of 2001 and I was diagnosed April 17th of 2001 and a two year old. And she said, “Well 50% of people live two to five years” and the whole family just broke down bawling and you’re just in disbelief; total shock, just overwhelmed with just sadness, a burden, heaviness I just can’t describe it to you unless you’ve actually been through something like that.
Sid: Beyond it being a death sentence, it’s a horrible death sentence, what happens to someone with Lou Gehrig’s disease?
Wendy: When somebody has Lou Gehrig’s disease you know typically they start falling, and your muscle, which I started to do, I obviously had nerve damage happening throughout my body but in my legs in particular and my muscles were not operating the way they were supposed to. Lou Gehrig’s is a debilitating disease where the muscles actually waste away and a person becomes paralyzed. You just get weaker and weaker and weaker until you’re in a wheelchair and eventually bed ridden. And then death usually incurs when the diaphragm, you know you no longer can breathe, so basically you suffocate to death.
Sid: Now, you were a Christian, but you didn’t understand anything about healing so I imagine you had literally no shred of hope and you started getting a lot of understandably so dark thoughts.
Wendy: Absolutely your mind, you know you are totally controlled by what your mind thinks and my mind was just, I had nothing positive in my mind at all. But I had an Aunt, my Aunt Jan that came along and told me “Windy, this is, this is not going to happen, you are going to get into God’s Word and were going to see and we’re going to agree together as a family for your healing and stand on God’s healing promises. And she said, “You need to get into this Bible College that I went to and go see what God’s word has to say about healing. So my family, my Mom and my Dad and Husband and my Brothers, we all went together and went to Bible school and learned what God’s promises were about healing. And eventually when you start putting that into your heart and into your soul and you start mediating on God’s word, you know the Bible says that that faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God. And eventually your faith starts to rise up as that goes on.
Sid: Well, you began to do things like posting scriptures all over your house.
Wendy: Absolutely, we took scriptures and because, I had negative thoughts Sid, you know the devil comes to rob, kill and destroy you know and he came as often as he could. And I would call my Mom and Dad crying and cried on my Husband and whenever I would trip and fall and I was having a bad day and not feeling well, and we would cast my thoughts down and replace it with the Word of God. And I would put, we had scriptures posted in my bathroom, it was on the refrigerator, in the bedroom, anywhere you could go, so I couldn’t get a spare second without mediating on God’s Word.
Sid: But then you were taught that you had to mediate, but sort of a faith without a corresponding action is really dead faith; so you wanted your faith to be alive so what did you do?
Wendy: Well, I decided that faith without works is dead, exactly like the scriptures says and if I was going to believe that God healed me and that He took care of it on the cross back when he died for our sins and our healing. It wasn’t just for sins you know He died for our physical healing as well, and I think that’s where Christians you know the Bible says “That My people perish daily for lack of knowledge.” So that was a… you know, because I always use to wonder this other person was a Christian and they died of something. You know my people, I think that there are a lot of good Christian people out there that just believe that God died on the cross for our salvation and there are tons of things in the Bible that talk about physical healing that Jesus still heals today. And when you stand on those healing promises and your faith rises up manifestations of that physically start to happen. So I decided that if I was going to act on my faith, I went back to work fulltime, I’m a dispatch supervisor at the 911.
Sid: But how could you do that, you don’t even have your balance, how would they even take you back?
Wendy: Yeah, my boss told be you come back however you can come back you come back to work; we want you here we support, they had faith with me and we support whatever your decision is. And I went back to work full time and you know what I had my days Sid; I had my days, but eventually as I kept just flooding myself with the Word of God and there’s power in agreement and I had every member of my family and friends agreeing for my total healing with me you know there’s power in agreement. And I wouldn’t listen to any… I wouldn’t read any negative articles, I wouldn’t watch any negative programs as far as death and dying and all that type of thing; I only put in my mind positive, life filled, healing scriptures. Eventually the manifestations of what I was doing started coming to pass.
Sid: When was the first time you saw something little happen that was positive in your body?
Wendy: We had a baptismal service for my son and one of the woman in the church got a Word of Knowledge and she came up in front of the church and she said…basically when I was up there with my son she said, the Spirit was moving her to come up and tell me that everything was going to be okay and that this disease was going to be eradicated. And she didn’t do it; she said “Lord if it’s meant to be that I tell Wendy this, let me see her face again.” Well, a few weeks later I went up to the front of the church for everybody to lay hands on me, and she saw my face again and she came up and gave me a Word of Knowledge. And she said, “Dolores told me that this disease will be eradicated within your body within thirty days.” I don’t understand what the thirty days was because it was about two years later that I was told and it was confirmed by doctors that I didn’t have this anymore, but I think that God requires us to stand…
Sid: How did the doctors respond to you being healed if you’re not supposed to be healed of Lou Gehrig’s!
Wendy: No, I went down to the doctor I started out going every three months and you know I would see a team of doctors, a respiratory therapist, a social worker and I was doing so well and we told them how I believe. We told them how we were going to cooperate with them and that we wanted them to treat me or you know to keep track of my strength or whatever, but that we told them we believe that God is going to heal me; that’s how we’re believing and they’d never looked at us funny they never; they supported us 100%. But really why wouldn’t you when this is a death sentence and there was nothing they could do to help me.
Sid Roth: Well, listen there are people listening to us right now and they’ve been given death sentences or they know people that have or they want to be able to pray for the sick…© Copyright 2012 sidroth, All rights Reserved. Written For: Sid Roth
