Jesus Christ Heals a Tooth

It's been two years now since I was so sick I was close to death. Two long, hard years of rebuilding my body. Let me give you a piece of advice – don't wait till you're nearly dead to change your lifestyle. It's hard and expensive coming back from the dead! Each morning for the last month I have been waking up feeling overwhelmed.

Overwhelmed with
joy
gratefulness
thankfulness
peace
praise
for my Jesus
for all He has done for me.

Yesterday, while at the dentist, I got the icing on the cake, so to speak.

Two years ago, when I was very sick, I went to a holistic dentist with a toothache. Following an x-ray, he found a decent sized hole in my back bottom tooth. it was visible on both ex-ray and in the mirror. I asked the dentist if my body could heal it naturally and he said no. I scheduled an appointment for the repair but was unable to do it as I became too unwell. The repair has never been done because the tooth stopped aching and I didn't get around to it.
Fast forward 2 years. I went to the dentist yesterday, a different one, also holistic in his thinking, and told him about this tooth. He too told me there was no way my body could re-heal it. He said sometimes people can heal the bacteria causing the decay but the tooth can never re-enamel. Personally, I had heard otherwise on the internet, of people re-enameling teeth and they all ate like us, but I didn't tell him this. So the dentist yesterday had a good look at my teeth. They are all in excellent condition. He couldn't see the hole I was talking about so he decided to take an x-ray.
On seeing the x-ray it showed that not only did I no longer have a hole in my back tooth, but as you may have already guessed, I had completely re-enameled the tooth! His words were,
"I just can't explain it. It's impossible! I don't know what you did, but it worked."
My reply to him was that I asked Jesus to show me how to heal it and then did what He said, (which is the truth).
When Jesus promised me healing 2.5 years ago He meant it.
God fulfils His promises.
Ex 15:26 “for I am the Lord who heals you”
Psalm 103:1-5 “Praise the Lord oh my soul; all my innermost being, praise his holy name. Praise the Lord O my soul and forget not all his benefits – who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion, who satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagles.”
There is a very strong theme on healing in scripture. I used to ignore it and not ask for healing. It nearly cost me my life. Don't follow my bad example there.
Ask and keep on asking and it will be given to you” as the old song goes is a strong theme in scripture. For me I determined that I would keep asking for healing until God told me “No”. He hasn't told me no yet.

So I say, ask. And then “do whatever he tells you.” (John 2:5).
