Mrs. C. Nuzum

Many lose the manifestation of healing already in operation,
by turning their attention from Christ and the Word of God to
their feelings. Before taking the step of faith for healing, get this
matter fully settled: After taking the step, you are going to see
nothing but God and what He says. From that moment doubt
should be regarded as out of the question and unreasonable. The
evidence upon which you have planted your feet is the Word of
God. To watch your feelings or symptoms would be like a
farmer digging up his seed to see if it is growing. This would kill
the seed at the root. When the true farmer gets his seed into the
ground, he says with satisfaction, "I am glad that is settled." He
believes that the seed has begun its work before he sees it grow.
Why not have the same faith in the "Imperishable Seed," the
Word of God? Believe that it is already doing its work without
waiting to see.

In receiving supernatural healing, the first thing to learn is to
cease to be anxious about the condition of the body. You have
committed it to the Lord and He has taken the responsibility for
your healing. You are to be happy and restful in the matter. You
know from His own Word that He takes the responsibility of
every case committed to Him. When receiving healing by faith,
the body and its sensations are lost sight of, and only the Lord
and His promises are in view. Before being conscious of any
physical change, faith rejoices and says, "It is written." Jesus won
His great victories by saying, "It is written," and believing what
was written. Any unfavorable feeling should be regarded as a
warning. We should not consider the body, but consider all the
more the Lord's promise and be occupied with Him. How much
better to be in communion with God and rejoicing in His
faithfulness, than to be occupied with a sick body. In this way we
have seen multitudes make great spiritual advancement. Others
have forfeited sweet communion with God by being occupied
with their feelings and symptoms.


In Mark 9:24 we read that the father seeking healing for his

In 1958 Fred Bosworth returned from a year of meetings up
and down the mountains of Japan. In January he turned eighty-
one. His family was surprised to see him retire to his bed. When
asked what he was doing, he explained that God had shown him
that he had "finished his course," his ministry was finished, and
it was time to go Home. He said, "I sure don't want to hang
around down here!" All the children came home, for the first
time in sixteen years, and there was a great final reunion.

My father, F. F. Bosworth, had prayed, asking God to help
him glorify God in his death as he had in his life—to die without
sickness. About three weeks after he took to his bed, we were
around the bed talking, laughing, singing. Suddenly Dad looked
up; he never saw us again. He saw what was invisible to us. He
began to greet people and hug people—he was enraptured.
Every once in a while he would break off and look around
saying, "Oh, it is so beautiful."

He did this for several hours. Finally, with a smile on his
face, he put his head back and slept. We took turns sitting with
him. My wife, Stella, was sitting with him when she suddenly
realized that he had stopped breathing. There had been no
struggle, no pain, no sound, no death rattle. The psalmist had
described it correctly—God had simply removed his breath and
he was home! "O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy
victory?" This is the testimony and ultimate triumph of F. F.
Bosworth and CHRIST, THE HEALER.
