As Eve Taylor lay in bed losing her battle with cancer, a disease which her pastor erroneously told her was God's will for her life, she began to wrestle with who she believed God to be and the words her pastor had spoken. "The preacher said it was God’s will, and He had a reason for allowing this cancer to be in me. I was weak physically and spiritually, and as I lay in bed all alone, I was sad to think that God wanted me to die," said Eve. That is when she turned the channel and saw Andrew as he shook his head and said, "You don't need to live with cancer; you can be healed from cancer. Cancer does not need to stay in your body; cancer is not hard to get healed from.”
Eve thought Andrew was speaking directly to her. "I was shocked to hear what he preached and in the way he said the truth. For once I heard someone make sense, and it was like the lights inside this Jewish woman turned on," said Eve. Her insides jumped and her spirit instantly bore witness that what Andrew was saying was true. Eve continued to watch the program as Andrew shared the testimony of a woman who had been healed of cancer. Eve prayed, "Yes! I too will believe and I receive what I just heard and saw."
Eve continued watching and listening to Andrew's Gospel Truth program and the messages, They Wouldn't Bend, Budge, Bow, or Burn, A Sure Foundationand Discovering the Keys to Staying Full of God began to transform Eve's life. Andrew's words cut through the years of religion from Eve's past. She couldn't wait to hear more. As she did, her faith was rebuilt, she regained her strength, and she couldn't wait to share the revelation she'd received. "It [Andrew's teaching] changed me, illuminated my heart and mind to the truth of the word like I had never heard it before—it was revolutionary. I became excited again. I was rejuvenated to beyond when I was first saved," declared Eve.
Andrew’s teaching sparked Eve's spirit back to life, and she boldly told her doctors that she knew she was healed and that the cancer was gone. Of course the doctors treated Eve as though she had lost her mind, and based on the pathology reports insisted on operating to remove cancer (ductal carcinoma invasive and in situ) from her lymph nodes. Eve consented to having surgery, but only as a means of proving to herself and to the doctors that she was healed. When the surgeon went in and removed her lymph nodes, she found no trace of cancer. Eve was quick to tell the surgeon that now they both had proof that God had healed her!
While Eve would prefer to be left alone to enjoy her cancer-free life, due to insurance regulations for medical bill payment, she remains under the supervision of her doctors. While her medical team is upset with her and insists the only way to insure her health is through more surgery, she keeps standing on God's Word and her healing. "They say, I'm being stubborn headed and can't realize the seriousness of my cancer. 'Praise God,' I said, 'By his stripes I'm healed'." In early April, two of Eve's doctors said that if she didn't have a complete mastectomy, followed by other treatments, Eve would have one year left. Eve's response, "I told them that when the year is up, I will either see them at the office or they can see me at the morgue, but either way I will live for the Lord."
Eve said she feels great, she has lost weight and she even looks younger. She has stepped out and started a group she calls, Families Against Big Bullies (FABB). She does public poetry reading and has begun to do her own writing. Eve also dreams of one day attending Charis Bible College in Colorado Springs. While life has not always gone Eve's way, nothing is going to hold her back now—not even cancer.
"I will stand for what Andrew teaches, and be an example of what God can do, and that's that. I'm not going to bend, budge, bow, or burn. I will live and not die. I told my doctors, 'No more cutting on me. You did all your going to do—now it's all up to God to show his power through me.' I receive it, I believe it, I'm living it, and without any doubt, at all cost, to live is to be with Christ and to die is to see Christ. Hallelujah. Either way I've already won, for through this ministry I've heard the truth and it set me free—Amen."
