July 2018 Newsletter - "When Lightning Strikes" by Dr. Roni Burton

Shalom everyone!

Greetings of peace can be a loaded statement depending on who is giving the greeting, because the intention of the heart and the words from the mouth may not match.  The Word says at the end of the age there will be a collective cry saying, “Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them… and they shall not escape.” (1 Thes 5:3).

A brother recently asked about multiple sclerosis (MS), because one his family members was diagnosed with this neurological disorder.  It is an autoimmune disease where the body attacks itself.  Specifically, the myelin sheaths, which is the insulation so to speak around the nerve roots (similar to the insulation of rubber around an electrical cord) is eroded by one’s own immune system.  The manifested symptoms include blurry vision, weakness, fatigue, bladder dysfunction, etc.

The function of the nerves is to bring the message of the mind (the brain being the physical housing that manifest the mystery that is the mind).  If there are “holes” in the myelin sheath, then the signal is scattered, the message is distorted, and the symptoms manifest as the diagnosis called multiple sclerosis.

In his book A More Excellent Way, Dr. Henry Wright sheds light on the spiritual root of this disease, which is due to an “unloving spirit producing feelings of not being loved, not being accepted, self-rejection, self-hatred and self-bitterness coupled with guilt.” (1)  So, without the life-giving revelation of the Word, as we have experienced under pastor Michael Petro here at Forerunner Ministries International, there are distorted messages and mindsets; a mixture of truth with lies.  And like MS, the ‘body of Christ’ is weakened, vision is distorted, there is spiritual fatigue and instead of unity of the faith based on the Truth.  There are now some forty thousand different divisions of Christ claiming to be the true one.  What’s the cure?  What’s the solution?

MS in the natural is not curable by man’s standard.  But praise Yah we have access to the supernatural.  Behind the veil is the revelation to remove the limitations of disease, whether in spirit, soul, or body.  We, Yahuha’s sons of Light, are to destroy all the works of the devil. Yahusha/Jesus tell us the cure when He says, “Elijah truly shall first come, and restore all things” (Mat 17:11) and before the “great and dreadful day of the Lord” He will send Elijah (Mal 4:5).  The spirit of Elijah is released for those with “an ear, let him heart what the Spirit saith unto the churches,” (Rev 2:7).

Under the leadership of pastor Michael Petro, the miraculous is manifesting through Forerunner Ministries International. The crippled are rising up out of wheelchairs, stage four cancers are vanishing, the demon oppressed are being set free (3-5 deliverances per week), and not to mention all the God appointments and confirmation of prophetic words as Christian media networks are aligning to broadcast the last move of Yahweh, the manifestation of His glory back into the earth.

Yahusha/Jesus said, “For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall the coming of the son of man be,”  (Mat 24:27).  Lightning represents the revelation of the Word, i.e. the book of Revelation.  Yahusha also said, “I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven,” (Luke 10:18). Notice the lightning from east to west bisects the “as lightning” which fall to the ground, i.e. carnality, false religion, MS.

So, when the lightning strikes the darkness of sin, we have to be in the position to receive the signal (the TRUTH) and transmit Him faithfully.  The sins, the “holes” in the myelin sheath in our souls must be healed, and only Christ the Great Physician can heal us, which is through revelation.  As His manifesting sons, we are to destroy the works of the devil (1John 3:8).  The signs (Mark 16:17-18) are following the revelation of the mystery of Christ.  It is my confident trust that as we are illuminated through the revelation of Christ, the “greater works than these” (John 14:12) will cause MS and every other so called incurable disease to vanish in Yahusha’s name.

Prosper and be in health of spirit, soul, and body.  Blessings!
