April 2018 Newsletter - "X Marks the Soul" By Dr. Roni Burton, MD

Shalom saints. There are several passages in the Bible, which if interpreted from the literal reading, the dead letter (2 Cor 3:6), causes death; it kills. For example, when Paul says he does not permit a woman to teach (1 Tim 2:12) was not referring to gender but to the soul. The female gender has suffered cruel oppression over millennia from religious ignorance due to carnal (i.e. literal) interpretation of the scriptures. The prophetic understanding of the scriptures is what opens our eyes and ears to the spiritual meaning.

Yeshua/Jesus’s disciples asked him why He only spoke in parables (Mark 4:34, Matt 13:10) and He answered them, “Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven…” (Matt 13:11). The mysteries are in the parables. Given this understanding of the symbolism, the reference of the natural things unveiling the spiritual things (1 Cor 15:46) allows one to see spiritually, if the Holy Spirit opens the eyes.

One such apocalypse (unveiling) for me recently is the condition of Rett syndrome. I met Melinda and her dad Fred recently at a local mall. She has Rett syndrome, which is a “neurodevelopmental disorder that occurs almost exclusively in females”. (1) Due to sporadic mutations in the paternal (father’s) X chromosome, “nearly all cases (99%) are due to de novo mutations in the MCEP2 gene”. (2) The typical manifestations of RTT include loss of purposeful hand skills, gait and motor abnormalities, loss of spoken language, stereotypic hand movements as well as other features including growth failure, epilepsy, cardiac abnormalities, bone mineral deficit and fractures, disorganized breathing and sleep patterns, etc. (3) Genetic studies have identified over “250 known pathologic MECP2 mutations associated with RTT”. (4)

In Luke 8:11, Yeshua says, “Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God.” Whether plant or animal, it starts with a seed. The DNA is in the seed. The DNA of the Father is in the seed (sperm/Word) of the Father. In the case of RTT syndrome, “broken DNA” is transmitted to the soul (the feminine) of man, resulting in a manifestation of the “fall,” i.e. Rett syndrome. The primary area affected by this diagnosis (a medical term) is the mind (neurologic) which affects several functions in the body. As we are the body of Christ (1 Cor 12:12), then the manifestations of this demonic (a spiritual term) break in the DNA affects the works of our hands (ministry), the speech (to declare the words of life), the walk (to walk out or manifest the transformed, spiritual life) are examples of first the natural, then the spiritual (1 Cor 15:46). The technical components of this condition are far more complex than the skeletal information I’ve given, but I believe it serves to open a different view, that is to raise levels of faith and ask in Yeshua’s name that He fix it.

I was given the opportunity to pray for Melinda and her dad that RTT will be removed from Melinda and she’ll be restored to health. Yeshua did all kinds of miracles, and He said we would do “greater” (John 14:12). I am believing Him because He said it. The apostle John said of his spiritual kids, “Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospers” (3 John 1:2). So X marks the soul. Through the revelation of the mysteries of Christ, we are being washed in the “washing of regeneration” (Titus 3:5) by the laver. Pastor Michael Petro has been unveiling the prophetic word for over fifteen years. This Word is not only able to restore the soul (Psalm 23:3) but to heal us completely in spirit, soul, and body (1 Tess 5:23). Until next time, Blessings!
