“Healing Is Coming” is an outreach of Beachside Fellowship in Panama City Beach, Florida. Ramon and Marsha Duvall are the pastors of Beachside Fellowship. You might see a website HealingIsComing.life associated with them.
This outreach and church is just another word of faith, health and wealth, and prosperity gospel church. Their resource page links to some of the worst money-grubbing prosperity gospel ministries.
They teach the false teaching that healing and prosperity are dependent on the words you speak. You can be healthy and wealthy if you speak the right words. They believe our words have the same creative power as the words of God. They grossly mishandle and overextend Proverbs 18:21.
Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.
The tongue and what you do with it, determines whether you have life or death in your life. Whether you have blessing or cursing. Whether you have sickness or health. Whether you have poverty or prosperity, it’s all determined by what you do with your tongue. We choose every day the kind of life we live.
Hear the above quote in the video below.
Yes our words can influence the course of our life, but they can’t create things the same way God’s words can.
This teaching was not practiced by the early church. Timothy had a stomach illness, and Paul didn’t tell him to speak a healing into existence. Paul had to visit Galatia because of an illness. If this was a practice of the early church, surely Paul, a man who wrote a significant amount of the new testament, would have taught it. He did have a lot of revelation after all. Paul told Christians to expect weakness and participation in the groaning pains of the fallen creation. This inspired man of God didn’t say it could be spoken away with faith filled words.
1 Timothy 5:23
23 (No longer drink only water, but use a little wine for the sake of your stomach and your frequent ailments.)
13 You know it was because of a bodily ailment that I preached the gospel to you at first,
22 For we know that the whole creation has been groaning together in the pains of childbirth until now. 23 And not only the creation, but we ourselves, who have the first fruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for adoption as sons, the redemption of our bodies. 24 For in this hope we were saved. Now hope that is seen is not hope. For who hopes for what he sees? 25 But if we hope for what we do not see, we wait for it with patience.
26 Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words.
A great way to beat God’s sheep, and cause them to despair is to tell them they’re poor and sick because they aren’t speaking the right words, or aren’t exercising the right level of faith. As you saw above that wasn’t something taught by Paul.
Paul clearly didn’t have the expectations of these false prosperity teachers.
1 Corinthians 4:11
11 Even unto this present hour we both hunger, and thirst, and are naked, and are buffeted, and have no certain dwelling place;
Please don’t let these doctrines of demons cause you to despair. They’re lies of Satan.
