My name is Hal Weeks. This is the story of my healing of cancer without medical intervention, except for diagnosis and an initial radiation treatment which did not cure me.
In July 1971, at the age of 58, I discovered a lump in my left groin about the size of a large olive. This was diagnosed to be a lymphoma or cancer of the lymphatic system. It was treated with cobalt for a period of 21 days. I continued to have periodic check-ups until early in 1975. As time went on I discovered several nodes in my neck and under my right arm that seemed to be growing. In August, 1977, at the age of 64, a large node was removed from my right armpit. It was diagnosed as a poorly differentiated nodular lymphoma. I was then referred to an oncologist for treatment. However, he agreed to defer any treatment on the basis of my belief that I had been divinely healed. I was scheduled to return in three months. When I returned, he could find no evidence of the cancer. He said, "If I were examining you for the first time, I would have diagnosed you as not having the disease." I continued having periodic check-ups until August, 1982, at age 69, at which time he transferred me back to my family doctor. Then in 1995 I discovered two large lumps over the right collarbone. It was determined to be lymphoma that had apparently returned. I did not have a biopsy since I did not plan to have medical intervention and the surgeon said there would therefore be no point in it. Again, I turned it over to the Lord. After six months during which time the tumors increased in size and number, I began to have second thoughts about medical treatment. As clear as I have ever heard the Lord speak, He said "I thought you had turned it over to me." I repented of my concerns and again trusted God for a healing. It stopped getting worse for two months, at which time the Lord said it would be gone in three months and it was. Since then I have had many other conditions healed, again without medical intervention. There has been no further reoccurance of the cancer.
I do go to a skin doctor and the dentist although in both I have seen divine intervention. I am now 88 years old.
Having always believed in prayer, I had been asking God to heal me all during the course of this disease. However, since I had not revealed my condition to more than a couple of friends, I had not received much -- if any -- general prayer. For several years, I did believe I had been healed and I did receive what the doctors called a marvelous remission. But with the recurrence in August, 1977, and a diagnosis that the condition was now serious, I became deeply troubled. At that time, a friend of mine invited me to attend a Full Gospel Businessmen's Fellowship dinner. Their emotional behavior turned me off so I decided to "lay a fleece" before the Lord. I said, "Lord, if this is something you want me to get involved in, heal my back." (I had a back problem that was causing me pain at the time) Immediately the pain left and my back was healed. I now believe this was the deciding factor in my seeking the experience known in charismatic and Pentecostal circles as the baptism in the Holy Spirit. I was prayed for to receive this at a Full Gospel Businessmen's Fellowship meeting on August 18, 1977, at the age of 64. Nothing seemed to happen at the time, but I was assured I had received this baptism and I thanked God for His gift. At about 10:30 the following Saturday evening, while in bed reading some charismatic testimonies and reflecting on them, my attention was drawn to a strange tingling sensation in my right arm. This subsided but shortly I noticed the same sensation on the side of my face. As I began to rub my face and neck, I felt a sort of electrifying of my right arm. I remember exclaiming, "Lord, your hand is holding my hand." Immediately, waves of an indescribable sense of the power of God began to sweep through my entire body. I have had similar sensations since but never again with that intensity or duration. For several days afterwards, the power of God was so strong on me that I finally had to ask God to "lead me beside the still waters." I did then experience some abatement for a time of rest, but this was the beginning of a whole new way of life and the beginning of a new relationship with Jesus that I had never known before. At the time it was impressed on my mind that I had received three prizes. The third prize was the healing of cancer; the second prize was the deliverance from spirits of fear and doubt; and the first prize was going from knowing about Jesus to knowing Jesus in a personal way as my Lord.
Although medical science classifies this as a spontaneous remission, I claim it as a divine healing.
