Sudden Healing Of Cancer

Marianne is a friend and was also with me during my illness!

Dear D’Vorah,

A long time ago, you asked me to put on paper my memories of the night when we thought you would be taken away from us. I felt it was the right time to do it.​

I was reminded of a night when I was sitting at the bedside of my (cancer-dying girlfriend).
Death had already made its appearance in the house; you could even smell it!
That smell has stayed with me for a long time. But in the middle of the night, there was a turnaround.
The smell went away; my girlfriend got warm, and the color returned.
Her husband and I could hardly believe what was happening!
A few hours later, she sat up in bed and even asked for food!

When I went home in the morning, I got an image in which I clearly saw that she would not die but remain on earth. Her task was not over yet!
I was also told to call her husband and encourage him. Now, that was scary!! Did I dare? Death had (been) so close; she had already arranged her funeral herself and the dress she wanted to be buried in; I had personally washed it for her and was already ‘ready.’ Medically, it was unthinkable that she would survive. Nevertheless, I called him up in obedience to the Lord.


(I once did not do what I got on my heart once before and regret it to this day, so I did not dare to do that again).

I passed on my vision to her husband and told him honestly that I did it with great trepidation! But the image was not a deception; Sometime later, the doctors declared her cured. She doesn’t even have any “residual damage” from cancer. Photos and examinations also showed no trace of the heavy radiation treatments. What a miracle, huh!!!

We are now a few years further, and it is clear that she still had a big task to do.

She has her own radio, television, and internet programs, in which she encourages, inspires, teaches, and prays with women who come to her. Even internationally!

” The way to The Light is through a detour.”

The words that emerge further from that night: “The way to The Light is through a detour.”

* ( On the way to my house Marianne got this word when she literally had to drive another route because of a roadblock.)

I saw you standing in front of a kind of gate (heaven gate) where your beautiful daughter stood waiting for you, with her red curls.

But I also saw that the path arched again, and you would come back to that gate much later after a big detour.

It was evident that you would still be here for a long, long time before you entered heaven. This is my memory of that night, and I thought it would be good to email this to you now!

Lots of love, Marianne

D’Vorah’s reply

Against the morning after the miracle happened, an acquaintance walked in, her name is Marrie, who cried out:“What happened to you last night?”

Yochanan and I were silent… We only said, “You tell us!”
This woman then told us the following: In the middle of the night, I saw a vision, I did not dream, I was wide awake. I was driving with you in a car, and we were on our way to a cemetery! Once I arrived, in a sinister dark cemetery, I was looking for an open grave… Just when I found that and knew I had to put you into it, the whole cemetery lit up, and a loud voice said,” Get away from here, not the right place and certainly not the right time. “When I looked at my alarm clock, it was around the clock of 5.30

How accurate is this story that Marrie told to us.

Somewhere in the morning, around half-past five, I sat up and asked for food!

After that miracle, I am still irradiated, but it did not help.
Cancer was still there at the end of the treatment; it had not changed a bit.
But the vision that I have seen myself (Yeshua was covering my body while I was lying on the table) has come true.

The week after the treatments, where they decided to start a new therapy against all expectations, the cancer was suddenly gone, from one day to the next.

Not even any residual symptoms of the irradiation!
For THE LORD had covered me with His body, as He promised.
This testimony happened in the summer of 2000

My Testimony About Finding My Jewish Roots

star of david2_edited.jpg

We Can Trust Our LORD! 


Being a Jew is about being set apart. Being HIS and leaning on HIM only.
The firstborn blessing also means suffering, because we need to learn the concept of LECH LECHA which G-d told Avraham!

Meaning leave everything behind and follow ME! Coming to the point that you can say I want YOU G-d no matter what they say think do AND whatever YOU chose to happen, I will follow YOU and OBEY YOU. I said that to Him in 2000 on my deathbed! ( cancer) I surrendered! Totally.

And Abba healed me all of a sudden instantly after the treatments which did not work. We need to live a set-apart holy life. Rest in HIM as He circumcises the heart. He will write the LAW ( of love) upon your heart.
It is as being a salmon swimming against the stream.

But you will be fruitful! Now think about those who say they support Israel but call our G-d nonsense.
You strip US from the essence of being a JEW!



It was the Father, my Abba, Who told me about my Jewish roots. It was the Father, who led others, into my life, to give me a prophecy, to give me gifts, to confirm, and to encourage. Teus Schep ⁺ (May his memory be a blessing) my dearest brother and friend, wrote a foreword in my book, in which he spoke boldly about my roots. When I asked him why? He said plain and simple: " Because the Father said so." 
For a long time, I had to keep my mouth, sometimes I was allowed to share some things to someone, but this is the first time I may, no I must share it in the open. For I`m born for such a time as this. Too much has happened, to share all His signs and wonders and confirmations, all at once. But one thing is for sure, HE calls us back and HE decides when we need to make aliyah! 
Follow His lead, and do not lean upon your own understandings! 


My mom had a near-death experience after giving birth to me; G-d spoke to her that He would give her extra time, up to thirty years.
In June 1967 I received a word: "He Who Promised Is Faithful," and someone wrote it in my poetry album. I did not know anything about my roots; little did I know about the six-day war. The Six-Day War (Hebrew: מִלְחֶמֶת שֵׁשֶׁת הַיָּמִים, Milhemet Sheshet Ha Yamim; Arabic: النكسة, an-Naksah, "The Setback" or حرب 1967, Ḥarb 1967, "War of 1967"), also known as the June War, 1967 Arab–Israeli War, or Third Arab–Israeli War, was fought between 5 and 10 June 1967 by Israel and the neighboring states of Egypt (known at the time as the United Arab Republic), Jordan, and Syria.

Then some years later, I received a word that I kept in my heart without sharing it with anyone.
I'm raised in the Christian faith, (Up to the present day I still do not know if my parents knew about their roots, or for some reason kept it silent, ( I remember certain things that give me the idea they did know it, but it is possible that I am the first to know it) but the words which I carried in my heart since childhood are coming to pass in front of my eyes. 

In the 70s, while I was watching ***Corrie ten Boom's movie "The Hiding Place" with my mother, I experienced as if I was in a vision. While looking at the images of Westerbork Vucht and Ravens Bruck, I suddenly knew for sure that I was connected to the Jewish people and that I would have a task in connection with and for them in the future.

When G-d took my mom home, after my 30th birthday,  I inherited her Bible, and in it, I found a piece of paper, where Hannah gives her child back to G-d. 
But I had drifted away from G-d. 
I won a ticket to Spain. -  I could visit Spain for ten days for free included a hotel and touring car. - 
I met Yochanan in that bus. Although the spark of love was there immediately, we both built walls around our hearts, because of things we both had experienced as it turned out later.
Some weeks after that trip, I heard my father was dying, and I cried out to G-d. 


At the same moment the phone rang, and I heard a voice saying: "This is Yochanan, the guy you met on the bus to Spain. I am standing in my parent's living room. I was taking a shower when I heard a voice, "Call the lady you met on the bus to Spain, call her now." And I could dial your number instantly." Without realizing how special and miraculously this was, I told him my father was dying, and I was desperate. He came, he was there for me, brought me to my father's sickbed, brought me to my father's funeral, and then we started to talk about what had happened. I cried out to G-d, and he heard a voice telling him to contact me. To make a long story short, we married, and soon after we converted and were baptized in water and Spirit. 


In 1995 Abba gave me a task. Which has been confirmed through several Jewish men. Years later a Jewish guy we interviewed for our TV program The Seven Pillars Of Wisdom, looked at me, while we were preparing for the program, and he was talking about the situation in Israel, and the persecution Jews had to face, his eyes almost fell out of their eye sockets, as he stuttered several times while pointing his finger to me, "you know, you know it, you know all about it," Yochanan who was busy preparing the camera's calmly turned his face towards him, and said: " But of course her maiden name is Meijer ;) 

G-d gave me a foundation that He wanted me to call Teshuva. A Christian Lady who worked for Israel products gave me a Messianic Magazine, and she said that G-d had told her to do so. In that magazine on the very last page, the word TESHUVA jumped off the page so to speak. This very same lady also gave me a scripture, some years later. And confirmed my Jewish roots.  - (The foundation is still called Teshuva but G-d wanted us to use Dezertofloro as our trade name. Desert Flower) -Since that moment, different people, were called by G-d, to tell me things or confirm things. But it was all about Jewish roots.
And all prophecies I received directly from G-d or through others were always connected to Yerushalayim.  
I received crystal coasters, engraved with the star of David, from a dear friend, who bought them for herself, but G-d spoke to her and said: "They once belonged to a Jewish family, and now they need to go back to their roots



















After G-d healed me miraculously from cancer in the blink of an eye, I heard the voice of G-d, and He told me that I would find a Jewish cemetery and then I would meet a guy who had something to do with Jewish graves.

And then I would see what the great "I Am" would do further. It happened exactly as I heard.
And the guy I met turned out to be a leader of a group who repairs and cleanses Jewish graves which are damaged by those who hate us. He invited me to a Synagogue. As my husband and I entered the building,
I almost fainted. I came HOME! 


In 2005 I met a Jewish woman who came to our studio for an interview for our radio program "Shammah" 
Before she left, she told me, " G-d will take you to Israel!"  I did not tell anyone. But out of the blue we received money on our bank account with the message: " For your trip to Israel." 
It came from a Dutch Christian lady, who was surprised when we told her how G-d had revealed to a Jewish woman that I had to visit Israel. 
To make a long story short, we wanted to make sure if this all truly came from G-d. 
So we asked Him several things, which would be impossible IF WE WOULD NOT TAKE CARE OF THINGS OURSELVES, but of course, nothing is impossible for our G-d!
We asked Him for someone to take care of all the animals. We asked Him for a place to sleep, but please Abba, not a hotel.
We have asked Him so much, but we have not shared it with anyone.
People came to tell us they would take care of the kittens!  And the same lady who send us money, for the trip, 
also said that she wanted to take care of the dogs, without us asking her.
How is that possible, you might think, The King was in the field!

It was HIS plan and HIS doing! 
We were invited to stay in Israel with our friend Paul Sherbow from IFBN where we broadcasted our radio program Shammah. Paul said, when we were going back home,

"Next time you visit Israel, it will be total different."
Later on, he explained that G-d already showed him, back then, I am Jewish, and Paul knew, I would have found my roots for 100% when I would visit again. ***

We were able to rent a car for a cheap price almost a new one. 
All things we prayed about, miraculously were available. And we had not told people anything! 


When Abba brought me to Israel I learned about Shabbat and since then, I learned more about His feasts about Torah and my Jewish roots.
The story is all about signs and wonders, and most of all about HIS faithfulness. In His time, He will bring me home.
It is all about Elohey Av'raham, Yitz'chak Ya'acov!  

Abba led me to a family tree of my Mamme, a friend of the family made it. 

Due to (forced) conversions and well-kept family secrets we lost track of our roots.***

Thanks to my LORD I am the one who can proudly and unashamed tell everyone who wants to know I am a Jewess!

אלוהי אברהם יצחק ויעקב
Blessed Be HIS Name. 

In the 80th's I had a large plant in the hall of my home. I got a dream that a leaf was detached from the original plant.
But no matter how far away it was from the main vein, blood flowed between the leaf and the natural branch.

So many years later I was allowed to know the meaning. Jew in Diaspora, no matter how far away, still Jewish. G-d made sure that I found photos of my deceased family.

The Jewish faces with black hair, are staring at me. I started to understand some things which I never understood before.

The freesias, bought by my father, for Saturday.  (Shabbat) The words that were spoken and which I now discovered turned out to be Yiddish. And things that I keep for myself, but which are a huge confirmation and blessing. And given by G-d. Pieces of the jigsaw puzzle fall into place. And G-d gave me a house in an area that, after Amsterdam, had one of the largest populations of Jews. All taken away, all gassed. But my maiden name is on the synagogues and on the war memorials. And then grandmother who in retrospect clearly spoke Yiddish. Wow, how big is our G-d! " More is to come,” He said. " But you need to trust me! Allow ME to finish what I started."

*** Cornelia Johanna Arnolda ten Boom (or just Corrie ten Boom) (April 15, 1892 – April 15, 1983) was a Dutch evangelist and Christian Holocaust survivor. She helped nearly 800 Jews escape the Nazis during World War II. Ten Boom co-wrote her autobiographyThe Hiding Place. It was later made into a movie of the same name. In December 1967, Ten Boom was given the award of "Righteous Among the Nations"' by the State of Israel.



Yechezkel 28:25 Orthodox Jewish Bible (OJB)

25 Thus saith Adonoi Hashem: When I shall have gathered the Bais Yisroel from the people among whom they are scattered, and I shall show Myself as set apart as kodesh in them in the sight of the Goyim, then shall they dwell in their adamah (land) that I have given to Avdi Ya’akov (My servant Jacob).
