Prophetic minister James Goll says his eight-year battle with cancer is over.
The founder of Encounters Network near Nashville, Tenn., said doctors at the Cancer Treatment Center of America in Zion, Ill., said there is no trace of the non-Hodgkin's lymphoma he has battled since 2001, and that several cancerous growths have melted away.
"I was stunned when I heard the news," Goll said in an online newsletter. "I asked the oncologist to tell me at least five times. The PET and CT scan and all three doctors confirmed the good report-I am free of cancer!"
Goll, whose wife, Michal Ann Goll, died of cancer on Sept. 15, 2008, said the intercessors worldwide had been praying for him, and he received the best medical treatment the world has to offer. But he still can't explain what happened.
"I ate right, drank right, did this and did that ... but you know what? When we have done all, we are left in a desperate place, because we cannot do it all," he wrote.
"Then God ... then God... then God. I threw myself these past few months in a place of abandoned desperation once again. I had no other place to go."
He said he grew discouraged after the death of his wife, which came as doctors told him the cancer activity in his own body had increased.
"This was the third or fourth time in eight years I had heard this," Goll wrote. "What was I to do? I could only trust while I was in this dark place of my life. ... Either God had to act on my behalf, or in a matter of time I knew I would be joining the great cloud of witnesses myself."
He said he fought to keep from giving up but also trusted God's sovereignty. "I was torn between the polar opposites of the free will of man and the sovereignty of God," he said.
Then he received news that the cancer was gone.
He said he is still working to strengthen his system but is expecting complete restoration.
"I am grateful. I am broken. I am stunned. I am undone," Goll wrote
"God's ways are so amazing! His ways are a mystery. But praise the Lord!"
