UPDATE AND PRAISE REPORT!
FROM HIGH GRADE, TO LOW GRADE TO NO GRADE!
Cast your burden on the Lord and He shall sustain you; He shall never permit the righteous to be moved. (shaken) Psalm 55:22
As you all know I was diagnosed with a high grade bladder cancer about six months ago and the doctor who found it said it looked like an angry beast. For someone who hasn't been sick nor been to a doctor in 45 years it has been a harrowing experience to say the least.
I believe cancer is not only demonic but fear based and I also believe we have all power and authority over it. The grace of God covered me through this trial and there were few times fear tried to attack me, but I will say that you have to pray without ceasing in order to gain the advantage and defeat the beast.
Throughout this ordeal God taught me to appropriate His promises of healing and deliverance and had me write a devotional teaching on the subject, "Appropriating the Promises of God" which is on our website under messages. He also reinforced in me who we are in Christ as "Joint Heirs" seated with Him in heavenly realms as His chosen people.
The Lord had given me a word a couple of months ago that I would receive a clean bill of health and that I would be healed and yesterday at my doctors appointment it came to pass. Mary Ann and I waited three hours to see the doctor and finally they called my name and we went in. My doctor is an Italian/Russian Professor and an expert on bladder and kidney cancer and he told me at the outset that I had a 70% chance of saving my bladder, even though the first urologist wanted to take it out!
The doctor's PA came in first, explaining my pathology and telling me that they might do chemo or immunotherapy called BCG, but it would be up to the doctor. Finally the Doc came in with a big smile on his face and told us there would be no need to treat something that wasn't there! It was really strange since the pathology had been in for 6 weeks and I had been told there would be more treatment when I healed up.
We had been praying against any form of chemo or anything that would ultimately destroy my immune system and God came through and performed a miracle right in front of us. The doctor then told me, "I'll see you in 3 months for a checkup to make sure it hasn't returned," Praise be to God! Needless to say, Mary Ann and I left praising God and giving Him all the glory!
I want to sincerely thank all of you who prayed us through this trial and praise God for your faithfulness. Please continue to pray that the cancer does not return and that this testimony will encourage those who are sick to trust God and appropriate His promise to heal them! May God bless you all!
