Prophetic teacher and anointed healing minister Joan Hunter shares insights on how you can be healed supernaturally from the spirit of trauma. It goes deeper than that, according to Hunter and her books, Freedom Beyond Comprehension and Healing the Heart. Traumatic events influence more than our emotions; it becomes engrained into our cells and can damage our physical health.
How can we get free?
We say “I’m the one that was divorced”, “I’m the one that is always broke” and “I’m the one that is always depressed.” We got to get rid of those labels—we got to move onto a whole new area in our lives and really, really, get free. So many people are heavy laden because of their past and that God can’t use them because of the past. How about God using you because of your past? Paul (Apostle) said “forgetting the things which are far behind me and pressing for the prize that mark thy calling (Philippians 3:14).” We got to sever the past. It’s like a dog going back to its vomit (Proverbs 26:11).
Do you have practical tips for our readers on how to do this?
I have prayers in the book [to repeat]. You just repeat the prayers and miracles are happening. What I learned is from revelation and through experience and through what works. Some of the stuff has happened to me. Not all of it, but I deal with [being set free from the past] abortions, satanic ritual abuse, and dissociative identity disorder.
Have we been ignorant when it comes to the spiritual realm?
Absolutely. Doctors are now studying what brings [sickness] on. If you go to a doctor and say that your insulin has shot up. He might ask you if you’ve been under a lot of stress. I am like “Hallelujah” we’re finally making headway here. They just released 35 billion dollars last year to study how trauma affects the body. I talk about trauma and stress in my book. I talk about cellular memory. Your body remembers the trauma it had. I have a testimony of lady name Nancy, she came to my service and I had people measure their arms and [the length of her arm was off and grew back]. Later I found out that when she was younger she would raise her arm so her dad wouldn’t hit her face. It destroyed here growth plate and it never grew past six-seven years old until that day. When God healed in that service-God took all the cellular memory all over her body. Nancy is in full-time ministry today.
Tell us more about your book.
It talks about erasing the pain of your past. For example, my ex-husband was a homosexual and when my daughter was 17, she showed me his favorites on his computer and male porn showed up, she’s 29 now. I was sharing this story the other day and in my mind I looked into the room where the computer was, and the computer screen was blank. God totally took it from my mind, that visual. That’s what God wants to do, erase the pain of your past.
Isn’t this still a process?
Nancy [was] instantly healed, boom, no more. Yes sometimes it can be a process like an onion. Sometimes it can be instantaneous. Sometimes the process starts, whether you specifically ask or not. I haven’t thought of that computer screen in probably 10 years. It was blank, blank. I didn’t even ask for it. I remember a pastor that hurt me and I have a phenomenal, incredible, unbelievable, memory and for me not to remember was amazing. I can write from experience and how He’s [God] wiped it away.
You talked about confessing “Let there be light” in a dark situation.
Yes. That was in Healing the Heart. “Father what was revealed in darkness, let be revealed in the light.” Once it’s revealed, What are you going to do with it? Confront it.
