“The greatest doctor of all people is and will always be our Lord!”
(24th Sept 1949)
“Who did give life to you? Only God! And He wants to give you health!”
(September 1949)Bruno Gröning avouched with insistence that there is no incurable disease.
“There is a lot that cannot be explained but nothing that cannot happen.”
(4th Sept 1950) was one of his many wise sayings. Health he saw as the divine order in man, illness as disorder. This disorder would always happen if man did not act according to the laws of God what would mostly happen unaware. Thus the evil (the disease) is able to enter man.
“Jesus Christ knew that every disease comes through sin. Therefore He admonished the ill one after the healing: “Sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee.”
Unfortunately, according to Bruno Gröning, many had lost the belief that God could heal them on a spiritual way.
“Many people know how to brush aside by claiming then and now about themselves to be a believing person, (…) and they always believed, and they did pray to God, and He did not answer their prayers, and they were not freed from the evil. (…) I know (…) that they have fallen for a power, that is the power of habit and that they do only comfort themselves with the word ‘belief’ but cannot believe in reality because they did not yet take the word “belief” to their hearts, they did not put it into action yet!” (4th Dec 1958)
This belief in God’s help Bruno Gröning emphasizes as a basic condition to experience a healing by the spiritual way.
“If you just believe that you will experience the salvation then you already got help. Just believe!” (5th Oct 1958)
“Who believes in his health believes in God.” (handwritten)
Out of this reason he also said:
“It is wrong if you ask: ‘What can he heal?’ No, you have to ask the question: ‘Who can he heal?’ You can also balk at it. (…) But then it is not my fault!” (5th Sept 1950)
“Should I lie to you, should I say that someone like me counts here? No, friends, it is you who counts, how you absorb the good.” (5th Oct 1958)
Additionally he clarified:
“I do not ask any help-seeker to which religion or nation he belongs. Human is human, we people are all only children of God, there is no difference then (…)” (5th Sept 1950)
For Bruno Gröning the origin, the status, the title, the skin colour etc. was totally unimportant to help someone in the name of God.
But one condition he expressed very clearly, again and again:
“Help and healing comes only to the people who have the strong belief in our Lord. But (…) who did lost him and is willing now to accept him again, also help shall be bestowed to him.” (27th Aug 1949)
“Here the person itself counts, how he did free himself to receive the healing, that means he has to be pure. He must know that he is no blasphemer. He must know that he feels obliged and connected to live with the Lord. Then he is pure.” (27th Aug 1949) “Do have trust and strengthen your belief!” (11th Sept 1949)
“It should not be like people did imagine it to date that they go once in a week and that is the Sunday to the Lord’s house and pray there and that it would be done for the week again, (…). That is wrong! If I say ‘I believe in the Lord’ so I must be the person accordingly, must be a role model (…) and must also show that I am a good person.” (17th Oct 1949)
“Go to the Lord’s house, pray devoutly there (but) not like before, that single ones, maybe many, also have gone there only to see what one or the other person is wearing and to talk about him and many other dirty things (…). This one should not do if one goes to church! There one should pray piously and devotionally and thank the Lord for all what He has done good to man.” (17th Oct 1949)
“Do believe that you are not alone, do believe that you are a divine creature, do believe that you are a child of God! Do believe that God gives you everything what He has destined for you, for every creature.” (5th Oct 1958)
Bruno Gröning also pointed out that no one is allowed to demand something from God.
“The main part did expect to get healthy immediately. That is a demand. (…) You are only to get, to receive!” (22nd Sept 1950)
“Most of the time it is fast but who insists that it will be fast, that right no man has to demand suchlike. Don’t push and demand but ask the Lord (…)” (10th Sept 1949)
Also the gift of health no one could buy from Bruno Gröning. He rejected such intention strictly and admonished these people partially very gruff.
“The good, the divine you can not buy with money, with gold, also brilliants, with whatever you have. (…) Money is might, health is almightiness!” (3rd Oct 1958)
For him health was the most precious belonging and he named a healing even sanctification. Out of this reason he often said: “To be rich means to be healthy!”
