HISTORY & RESTORATION
These rooms are considered to be the first healing rooms ever recorded to have been used for the specific purpose of receiving divine healing.
Upstairs are the 14 healing rooms which provided living space for both the Parhams and their patients.
Divine healing was, and still is preached here.
Charles Parham clearly expected all diseases to be cured by the patient’s faith. The home provided an environment which, along with his teaching, encouraged recipients of the healing ministry to exercise their faith and claim their answer…..God’s will is that all should be healed.
Charles Parham and his healing ministry at the Bethel Healing Home speaks of such testimonies of healing for: heart disease, appendicitis, cancer, tumors, rheumatism, epilepsy, fevers, nervous disorders, spinal meningitis, deliverance from addictions, arms and legs shorter than their counterparts growing out to match in length, and many other diseases and afflictions that were healed.
Visits from patients would last anywhere from several days to a full month. During peak periods the six bedrooms were full, and other guests were placed in temporary sleeping quarters in the parlors and attic.
Tree of Life Fellowship intends to restore these rooms to their original conditions and reopen them to the public once again for the purpose of divine healing that they were used for in the late 1800’s.
Pastor Joy is a licensed physician and will direct the facility for these purposes.
At Tree of Life we whole-heartedly
believe Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever.
His Words are forever true…..
1 Peter 2:24 who Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, having died to sins, might live for righteousness—by whose stripes you were healed.
Proverbs 4:20-22 My son, give attention to my words; Incline your ear to my sayings. Do not let them depart from your eyes; Keep them in the midst of your heart; For they are life to those who find them, and health to all their flesh.
The words of God are life to those “WHO FIND THEM”
When we do as we are told in scripture His Words are made “health to all our flesh”
When God says health to all their flesh we say whose flesh? Those who find and attend to the Words of God on that subject – HEALING
The Word must be as a seed that you plant in your heart (soil) and when it goes into good ground it effectually works in you.
Three Essential Things To Divine Healing:
Incline your ear to My sayings
Let them not depart from my eyes
Keep them in the midst of my heart
All of heaven is behind God's Word. The people who have come to Tree of Life to have Jesus heal them believe with all their heart, in faith, that they will receive their healing, and they have.
Some of the healings we have witnessed have come instantly, some have taken days weeks or months, but God was faithful to them all as they declared His Word over their body and over their lives.
