After strong praying on October 13, 2008, I broke through the socialism spirit in our government. Terre Brown was delivered at about the same time. She had been sick several days; I was unaware of her healing until later that day.
Terre Brown’s Testimony:
In October 2008, I became very sick on Saturday afternoon, the 11th. For three days I was mostly passed out asleep with fever, horrible aching pain and nausea. What little time I could stay awake I would try to read Psalms, but I was very ill, dizzy, barely able to eat or walk around. In a conversation with Doyle, he said that he was overcoming socialism and was praying me through that as well. On Monday afternoon at 4:15, I suddenly knew that the spirit of this sickness was broken. I tried calling Doyle but he did not answer his phone. Within fifteen minutes all my symptoms were gone, and I was healed. At church that night, Doyle spoke that he had broken through and overcome at 4:00 that afternoon!
The following Saturday I was eating dinner at a restaurant with my family, and I saw an old friend from high school that I had not seen since college. I asked her about an older woman that I had known before coming to Water of Life church. I had attended this woman’s bible study for several years. She taught the same Dallas Theological Seminary (DTS) doctrines that I adhered to. This woman was also the unofficial leader in North Texas for the study of Homeopathy, an alternative system of medicine. My family had begun studying and using homeopathy just a couple of years before. So this woman became very influential in my life at that point. Since she was older, I didn’t even know if she was still alive. To my surprise, my friend told me that she had just died the previous Saturday, the day that I became severely ill.
Then, on the following Monday, we learned that the previous day a man died who I had known most of my life from my dad’s employment. This man was the first person hired by Ross Perot in forming EDS in 1962 and was a familiar household name to me while growing up. He remained on the EDS board of directors until it sold to GM in 1984. A few years later, in 1987, this man invested a large sum in the company that my husband, Steve, worked for. I was greatly surprised when Steve came home and told me who their newest investor was! Within a few years he became the CEO and largest stockholder in the company. Needless to say, it was shocking to hear that this man had also died right at this same time period in October 2008.
The spirits of DTS, Homeopathy and EDS were major influences in my life. I had no clue how much they had me bound – especially since I had not participated in any of those things since 1985 and believed that they were false doctrines and contrary to the gospel. Being delivered of those strongholds brought a dramatic change in my heart and my ability to believe the gospel. I thank God for His mercy to deliver me!
