October 2018 Newsletter - "Straighten Up" by Dr. Roni Burton

Hello family,

It is so wonderful to begin to see what Yeshua/Jesus alluded to when He said greater works than these you will do.

There is a Power beyond our logic which says to “them that believe; in My name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; they shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick and they shall recover,” (Mark 16:17&18).

Often the thought of the “sick” person is usually in the physical sense, i.e. there is a diagnosis or trauma resulting in physical or emotional injury.  The common options are pharmaceutical, procedural, or even psychological with the hope of resolution of symptoms.  None of them are just calling on The Name.  The key to the efficacy of The Name is in verse 16 above.  Yeshua says, “He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved…”  The healing in these words was hidden from me all my life until about four years ago when the mystery of Christ, the Word, was revealed to me by pastor Michael Petro.  First, to be baptized with water is only a symbol of being baptized with the revelation of Christ: the Rain (Deut 32:2).  John tells us at the beginning of his gospel that the Word is Yah (God) and as many as received Him, He gave them power to become sons of Yah; to them that believe on His name (John 1:12).  All of creation was made by Him (John 1:3) and if His Rhema Word is ingrafted into our being (James 1:21) through the process of revelation; the Word that spoke creation is able to restore all of it! (Matt 17:11)  The process of laying on of hands is what the High Priest did to transfer the sins committed by the people, symbolically, onto the Lamb (John 1:29 & 36) to spiritually clean them.  Because we are sons (Gal 4:6), we get to do what our brother YHVH (Rom 8:29) does.  He declared it in Psalms 82:6, “Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the “Most High.”

So, straighten up!  It was the declaration that our sister Deidra made when she changed her declaration from agreement with a 20º scoliosis that she had for years with neck and back pain and spasms, only placated with medication. In addition to stress, she had lots of chiropractor visits with no lasting results.  She came into alignment with the creative, prophetic Word from “in the Beginning,” and it manifested with complete straightening of her spine and resolution of pain.

This is only one example of what’s happening here at Forerunner Ministries International.  It’s the reason why Yeshua/Jesus came here and took on flesh: to manifest the character and function of Yah (John 1:14, 1John 3:8), which is to destroy the works of the devil; this includes all disease.  It’s not the poisonous medication of dead letter religion, which kills (2 Cor 3:6); it’s the Mystery of the Word revealed and engrafted into the DNA of the believer that reverses the curse of sin (ignorance of Truth) with the attending manifestation of health in spirit, soul, and body.

And again, those persons who are not bringing forth the fruits of righteousness, and are, as it were, covered over and lost among brambles, if they use diligence, and receive the word of God as a graft, (Jam 1:21) arrive at the pristine nature of man — that which was created after the image and likeness of God. (2)

Now is the season for that restoration in The Name of Yeshua; let it be so, amen!

Blessings, Dr Roni
