John Paul Jackson, perhaps best known for his prophetic dream interpretations, has been diagnosed with cancer. Doctors found a large, aggressive cancerous growth in his leg that needs immediate treatment. (NOTE: Here is a follow up story. Good news: Jackson has recovered. This was his initial announcement, which went massively viral among intercessors.)
"I have said on many occasions that I do not always understand God's ways, especially in the heat of a test, but I do always trust Him, in good times and in difficult times," Jackson writes. He called the cancer his "greatest personal test."
In the face of the cancer diagnoses, Jackson has canceled his upcoming speaking engagements to prepare for what he calls a "rigorous treatment protocol."
"I have not ruled out any and all forms of treatment paths, but at the top of that list is prayer. I know that God can heal me in one instant or through the hands of doctors over time," Jackson says. "We are focusing our faith for a miracle, while following doctor's advice until my healing is complete."
During his treatment, Jackson vows to do what God has called him to do as best he can. But he will not include travel in the mix.
"I am pursuing the kingdom of God and equipping people to do the same as vigorously as I am able. I refuse to allow the enemy a stronghold in my thoughts. God is great and all-powerful," Jackson says. "I believe He will take me through this battle. In the process, God will gain a great victory and His name will be glorified."
Jackson has asked believers everywhere to join in the battle with him by offering two minutes a day to ask God to heal him and destroy the works of the evil one.
"Just two minutes will make a huge difference in separating light from darkness and health from disease," Jackson says. "Please pray for Diane and me. With your prayers, we will see God glorified, and what Satan meant for evil will be seen as the glory of God being displayed."
