Warning: This is quite possibly the most demonic video program I have ever seen, and I don’t say this lightly.
I was scrolling through my news feed and saw this “By His Stripes We Are Healed” headline on WND, where It’s Supernatural’s host Sid Roth airs a popular video report. Today Roth introduces us to a seer and prophet James Goll, who claims Jesus Himself taught Goll how to heal.
“The first prophecy I ever heard came out of my own mouth,” Goll begins, as Roth excitedly probes him about his own testimony before asking about Goll’s latest vision.
Goll reminds the audience that he first healed himself of cancer a few years back after the “Holy Spirit” told him in a vision to keep the month of October free, because a surprise would come his way. (Does the Holy Spirit sound like a Chinese fortune cookie here? Isn’t the Spirit’s job to point us to Christ? But I digress.)
So sure enough, that October a pastor from Africa whose name is Surprise meets Goll and lays hands on him, unleashing a fiery sensation through his blood stream and all up and down his body.
“I saw a vision of Jesus in the fire, and He said to me, “I want you to step into the fire of My presence with Me.’”
And then this “Jesus” told Goll to look at the 39 stripes on his back. Goll claims he could see a word spelled out in each wound: Scoliosis, liver disease, etc. And that’s when Jesus personally showed Goll how to heal people with those diseases.
“Right now I believe the Holy Spirit wants to touch some of you! I speak to leukemia. I speak to someone on kidney dialysis right now. Someone with a hole in his heart. The Lord is going to come by to visit your house, and healing is coming to your house today,” says Goll, looking directly at Roth’s captivated audience – and of course into the camera. This is a call-in show, after all.
As Sid Roth’s audience oohs and ahhs, Roth cuts to his commercial ad, hawking Goll’s Living In The Supernatural Course, along his “anointed” 4-part teaching series on DVD and his I CD, all available for a mere $49.
The ad continues:
Through this 4 part series, you will begin to experience rivers of living water flowing through you to others. Understand that the main purpose of the baptism of the Holy Spirit is so that you can walk in supernatural Power!
But wait! Order today and…
Receive the double anointing! You’ll learn how to operate in all nine gifts of the Holy Spirit.
Wait for it…

Goll’s book has over 200 Scriptural references, so what could possibly be unbiblical about this?
Goll’s Angel visions and Orbs of Glory
Roth: “For nine weeks you had angelic visitations. Tell us about that.”
Goll: “It happened on the Day of atonement,” he started. “A lightening bolt crashes into the bedroom and a man - an angel is at the end of my bed. ‘Watch your wife. I’m about to speak to her,’ he tells me. The angel put his hands on her, and then The Lord called her to be a teacher and a prophetess that very night.”
He then described a huge ball of light dancing over their dresser that illuminated the whole room with the Glory of God, which Goll says opened the door of nine straight weeks of visitations that would go from midnight to 5 a.m. it was supernatural encounters of a supernatural God. Other nights there would be dozens of glory orbs floating around their room.
“And we would just say, ‘hit us with the glory of God!’ And we were getting empowered with the holy spirit with new levels of authority and power over demonic activity and new faith bursting in us for visitations!”
Sid Roth leaning close in an excited voice asks Goll what changed after the angelic visitations ended.
“Well one of the things that changed was my view of women in leadership and women in ministry. Because now all of a sudden I was married to a lioness who roared.”
Roth prompts Goll for one more stunning announcement of Jesus speaking a new prophecy to Goll: I want to whet our appetite here. You heard an audible voice. What did He say?”
Goll leans forward and tells the audience about a direct, audible voice of “Jesus” Himself who allegedly said:
“The seeds that the seers and prophets sowed generations ago have come to fruition, and therefore there will be an increase in the gift of the word of knowledge and an increase of the Holy Spirit.”
Roth: “How close are we to the manifestation of that word?”
Goll: “I believe it’s already started.”
Sid concludes: “I wish I had this course (Goll’s DVD series), on the Holy Spirit when I was a brand new believer. Yes, I had a course at the beginning of the Charismatic movement, however, nothing like this! You will be able to do the works Jesus did. He even says that this last great move, even greater! “
To WND, Where is your discernment for exposing thousands of Christians to this wolf, this demon? You allow this false teacher to infect God's sheep, even after you were warned back in September that Sid Roth was promoting the contemplative Soaking Prayer with a video tutorial billed as a WND exclusive - which is still on your website in spite of protests from hundreds of listeners.
Who is James Goll?
Dr. James W. Goll is the President of Encounters Network, the International Director of Prayer Storm, and the Founder of God Encounters Training. He is a member of the Harvest International Ministries apostolic team and an instructor in the C. Peter Wagner Leadership Institute. He is involved in the so-called Third Awakening with the likes of his friends Patricia King, Mike Bickel (of I.H.O.P) and Bethel’s Bill Johnson.
If you need any further proof that this is not of Christ our Holy King, take a listen to the person whom God spoke audibly to Goll about. Whom do you suppose God is raising up to be His new ‘champion?” Hint: his name starts with a T.
From “God’s” mouth to your ear?
