JAMES: Okay, you have my permission. Go ahead and do it. Well you have permission of the word of God to look and see the open heaven. Well Daniel saw the open heaven. He saw thrones being set up. Well you know where those thrones are. They’re in heaven! And he saw the “Ancient of Days” coming to sit on the throne. Hallelujah, I want to see that. How about you?

AUDIENCE: Yes!

JAMES: Yes, Lord, send that anointing! Well you know in Mark chapter 1 it says that when Jesus got baptized as He was coming up out of the water God literally ripped heaven open. And I looked, I searched. I can’t find any place in the Bible where God sewed it back up. Amen?

AUDIENCE: Yes! Amen.

JAMES: When He ripped the heaven open He meant for it to stay open. He didn’t open a little window that might shut later. He didn’t open a door that someone might close later. He ripped it open so it would be open for you and for me right now!

AUDIENCE: (CLAPPING)

JAMES: And I receive that. Amen? Do you receive it? Hallelujah. Yes! Well very shortly after Jesus started ministering He had a new disciple named Nathaniel. And He said to Nathaniel you shall see heaven open and angels ascending and descending on the Son of Man. Well now I personally believe that every promise in the Bible was written just for me— and for you. Amen?

AUDIENCE: Amen?

JAMES: Can you receive that?

AUDIENCE: Amen.

JAMES: Maybe say it. “The promises of the Bible are for me.”

AUDIENCE: The promises of the Bible are for me.

JAMES: I claim all of them

AUDIENCE: I claim all of them.

JAMES: So receive this promise from Jesus. YOU shall see!  Amen? Say “I shall see.”

AUDIENCE: I shall see.

JAMES: Heaven open.

AUDIENCE: Heaven open.

JAMES: I’ll see angels.

AUDIENCE: I’ll see angels.

JAMES: Ascending.

AUDIENCE: Ascending.

JAMES: And descending.

AUDIENCE: And descending.

JAMES: On the Son of Man.

AUDIENCE: On the Son of Man.

JAMES: That means I’m going to see Jesus, right. Hallelujah!

AUDIENCE: Whooo! (CLAPPING)

JAMES: Oh I love it when Jesus shows up in a meeting. The ministry gets really easy when Jesus shows up. (laughing) All I need to do is get outa the way and let Him do what He wants to do. Amen? So receive that as a promise from God. YOU shall see! And you know I believe God wants every one of us to have our spiritual senses activated and open. He wants you to have your spiritual eyes open! So you can see. I think that everything in the natural realm is a reflection of what God has already done in the spiritual realm. The difference is in the spiritual realm it’s more powerful and it’s going to last forever. And just as God gave us five senses in the natural, God has given us five senses in the spiritual and God want us to activate those senses. Well I had an angel come to me at one time and the angel grabbed me by the shirt and pulled me nose to nose and he said gently to me: Wake up! (laughs) Wake up right now! There are things that you need to see in the spiritual realm so wake up your “see-er anointing” right now! 

AUDIENCE: Hallelujah! Whooo! Whooo! JAMES. Well you know that’s what God is saying. You can wake up your “see-er anointing.” It says in Corinthians that the spirit of the prophets are subject to the prophets. Your spirit is subject to you and you can command your spirit. I do that all the time cause sometimes I think I may have a lazy spirit. It tends to slide off to sleep and I say Hey spirit, wake up! There are things you need to see. There are things you need to know. Things you need to be doing. So wake up! And you need to begin to speak to your spirit too! Well why not start right now.  How about say “Spirit!”

TIM: People from around the towns came and sat in the presence of God. You know how you text today? Everybody’s coming and they’re worshipping God and the Cloud didn’t leave!

JAMIE: Now you’re of the mindset that Acts 2, and I see it, but that the tongues of fire that were above those present when they’re baptized in the Holy Spirit, had those tongues of fire, are really representations of the angelic beings. I mean Hebrews tells us He makes His angels winds. His ministers flames of fire.

TIM: Flames of fire.

JAMIE: So when Acts 2 the outpouring of the Holy Spirit there was a release not only of the Holy Spirit but of a partnership with the angelic realm. Is that what you’re saying?

TIM: Yeah. The Holy Spirit came with angel armies and they were ministering fresh fire off the altars of God and when they minister that fresh fire or glory it says the angels looked like fire torches and they flash back and forth like lightning. Well that’s what was happening over the heads of the people. The angels were ministering God’s glory, fire off the altar under Holy Spirit supervision as He was coming to empower the church for a new move! That’s what He’s doing now only at greater levels. 

JAMIE: Yeah. There’s so many people that are listening to this right now and saying I want to partner with Holy Spirit! I want to invite angelic help assistance into my life under the supervision of the Holy Spirit. 

TIM: Uh-huh.

JAMIE: And they need an impartation. Is that something, Tim, that you can pray and ask the Holy Spirit to help download, impart to those listening right now?

TIM: Absolutely! Psalms 103, verse 20 says to us that angels hearken to the voice of God’s Word. And so we will pray for the releasing of the Holy Spirit to you but also your responsibility would then be to declare what God says. Because that’s when angels hearken and obey. They obey – they don’t obey my word. They obey God’s Word! And so we’re going to pray and activate the Holy Spirit’s ministry in people’s lives today because that’s why He’s here. Jesus sent Him to be a comforter with us. And then I would encourage you let’s decree the word of the Lord and as you decree the word of the Lord we release the angels to work. So Father we pray that all around the world, those that are listening today would have a fresh impartation of the Holy Spirit. Holy Spirit, come to them.

Jesus, You said of Holy Spirit that He is a Wonderful Teacher. Come and teach us! Teach those listening today concerning their life and the strategy You have in mind for them and for their situation. Fill them with fresh power! Fill them with fresh peace today! And as they activate Your Word we’re asking You to activate angel armies, all 7 companies, Lord, that are out there. There are also angels that are available to us individually to come and assist. Assist their ministry! Assist and protect them! And strengthen them to get to the next level! We decree in the name of Jesus Christ everything accelerates! That’s what Your Word says and that includes every individual watching! May the ministry and power of Jesus Christ accelerate in your life!

JAMIE: Tim, that’s amazing, man! Thank you so much for coming on!

TIM: Bless you!JAMIE: Listen! We’ve been with Tim sheets and I believe there’s Something More for you! Just ask the Holy Spirit to activate this in your life! [music begins] This is not just taught. It’s caught! So receive what it is that He’s pouring out on you today! Until next time God bless!

ART: That’s exciting! It means that you can truly fulfill Matthew 10:8 which says “Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse the leper, drive out demons. Freely you have received, now freely give.” Jesus said in John 5 just as the Father gives life to the dead and raises them up even so the Son gives life to whom He is pleased to give it. Sometimes we’re sitting here thinking people aren’t being healed because of all these different reasons. Maybe God doesn’t want it. I think sometimes people aren’t healed because we don’t want it. Because you can give it away to whomever you choose. Now that’s a tough thought. Now it’s a tough one. It’s a challenging one. But me? I carry this thought. I let it spur me on toward love and good works.

I let it challenge me. I let it push me forward in the ministry. And I’m telling you God’s going to do great things through you if you’ll remember I know I can do this because His nature’s been put in me. He is the Lord our Healer. He’s put His Spirit in me. I’m a new creation. See that’s the beauty of salvation. You know like under the Old Covenant it was work, work, work. I have to prove myself. And the proof of the Old Covenant was nobody could obey everything. You know if you break just one of these things you’re guilty of all of it. Like I mean you could say I deserve hell because I’ve broken Ten Commandments but the truth is I deserve hell cause I shaved the hair on the sides of my heads. You know like that’s one of the commandments. You know you could go to the slightest little thing and we’ve broken it. You’re guilty of all of it.     

But Jesus comes and He sets us free from all of that. He says I will fulfill the Law on your behalf. Wow. He pays the price for our sin. He takes the wages of sin which was death so that we can live. And then it doesn’t stop there. He doesn’t just save you. He puts His Spirit in you. The same Spirit who raised Jesus from the dead. The Holy Spirit of God. And you’d better believe if God is with you— What does Acts 10:38 say? “Jesus went about doing good, healing all because God was with Him.” With Him. So, I wish I could just expound on this stuff but we’re going to run out of time. I just want to make sure you’re clear. I know that in scripture there are times when God made people sick. It happens. But the issue of whether God makes someone sick is separate from the issue of does God always want to heal. We have a New Testament example.

There’s only one person in the entire Bible who Jesus specifically made sick. That was the man Saul who became the Apostle Paul. When he was on the road to Damascus he had a vision of Jesus and he wound up blinded by this experience. He was on his way to go persecute Christians. Right? Now three days he stays blind until Jesus appears in a vision to a normal ordinary disciple like you or me named Ananias. And He says to Ananias go to this man named Saul at this place and this location. Tells him what to do and what to say and to lay hands on him because Saul’s seen a vision of a man named Ananias coming and laying hands on him and restoring his sight.

Now Ananias knows who this Saul is. He knows about the persecution against Christians and everything. He’s terrified. He says Lord send somebody else. Right? I probably would have too. I’ve heard about this guy, Saul. But instead the Lord encourages him. He goes. He lays hands on Saul and heals him. Now think about that. The one and only case where Jesus made someone sick the prescription was as soon as a Christian could get there they ministered healing. God’s will was healing. He just wanted to stop Saul from persecuting Christians. So you think God made you sick? Well are you on your way to murder Christians? If not, it probably wasn’t Him. Okay?

ART: There’s no scripture verse that says he limped for the rest of his life. You see every one of these questions we have can be brought to the scripture. You can study it out and you’ll find out none of ‘em are true. All these arguments we’ve had you can wipe ‘em away. Paul leaving Timothy— or leaving Trophimus sick in Miletus. Well guess what? Paul had a mission. I’ve got friends who I’ve prayed for hundreds of times. They’re still not healed and I have a mission and I’ve got to leave them where they are and go minister at a church somewhere and it’s heart breaking but it has to happen. It doesn’t mean God doesn’t want to heal them. Just cause someone’s not healed doesn’t mean God doesn’t want it.

In fact Second Peter 3: 9, I believe it is, says that God wills that none should perish and that all would come to repentance. But we know from scripture that some people perish in hell and don’t repent. So God’s will is not always done. God’s will is that none should perish yet some people perish. Jesus taught us to pray “Your kingdom come. Your will be done on earth just like it is in heaven.” Why would we have to pray that His will would be done if it’s always done? Romans 12:2: “Be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you’ll be able to test and approve what God’s will is. His good, pleasing and perfect will.” Why would you need to test and approve what His will is if everything that happens is His will? You just kind of take it for granted. But if you’ve got to say umm, is that His will? Yup. Yup. Yup. He does want to heal people. Is that is His will?

Like you’re walking across some rope bridge in a movie that always falls. Right? We know how this goes. But you’re testing and approving every board. See? Jesus wants you to know His will. That’s why you have to be transformed by the renewing of your mind. That’s why we’re doing this teaching. So that the Holy Spirit can get into your brain and take out those arguments and you can just rise up with faith and say no, no, no. Jesus wants this! The reason I’m so convinced that He wants it is that He paid the price for it. You don’t pay for something you don’t want. If you were to go to Walmart and buy the biggest big screen TV they have and they deliver it to your house cause it’s too big to fit in your car and you open up that box and it’s empty? You’re going back to Walmart. You know like give me my money or give me my TV! Right? There’s no way you’re settling for that. If you paid for it you want it!  

AUDIENCE: That’s right!

ART: Did Jesus pay a high price for healing?  

AUDIENCE: Yes, He did!

ART: He wants it. And He paid a much higher price than a measly few thousand dollars for a stinking TV. You know? Our Jesus is amazing. He wants it. In fact First John 2:2 tells us that He paid not only for our sins as believers but also for the sins of the whole world. That doesn’t mean every single person on the planet is saved but it means every person’s paid for. You pay for what you want. You see? God wills that none should perish. You pay for what you want. He paid for all. Do you see how that works? You can go to even someone who doesn’t believe in Jesus and minister healing to them. He wants it. He wants it. He wants it. Now I want to just look at a few more things. He’s the Lord our Healer. That’s proof that it’s His nature to heal. I mean He’s called “Jehovah Shalom.” The Lord our Peace. Does His peace have limits? You know? Is He ever not peaceful? “Jehovah Tsidkenu,” He is Righteous. Is He ever not righteous? No. So “Jehovah Rapha,” the Lord our healer.

Is there ever a time when He is not offering healing? It’s His nature. It’s who He is. You can’t separate Him from His nature. Now, since this is part of His nature it is something that naturally flows from Him. Healing’s been purchased for everyone once and for all. Therefore it should come as no surprise that absolutely anyone can be healed by the Lord our Healer. It’s His nature and we’ve been given access to His nature through knowing Jesus Christ. So Second Peter 1:4 says that “Through God’s glory and goodness He has given us His very great and precious promises so that through them YOU may participate in the divine nature and escape the corruption in the world caused by evil desires.” In other words not only is healing part of God’s nature, but through knowing Christ His healing power naturally becomes part of your own nature. Because you’ve been given to participate in the divine nature!

KYLE: Just a prompting of the Holy Spirit.

BRUCE: Yeah. And so here’s the thing with Tim. This is the most important part of the story. Tim would say that God did not talk to him. Tim would say this all the time. Oh, you’re so lucky. You get words of knowledge. You’re so lucky you get dreams. You get visions. I wish God would talk to me! God doesn’t talk to me. So he calls me right before I’m about to get high with this guy. And it had been days since and so I got off the phone. I thought that was strange. A few days go by. A week goes by. I haven’t been – I hadn’t gotten high. I’m in another place. Someday after work at this guy’s house I’m about to smoke a little pot with him. My phone rings. It’s Tim again. And I’m like wow, that’s the second time now. And the third time it happened it was on a Saturday. The same thing out of the blue he calls me right before I’m about to do it. So now it’s Sunday morning. We’re at church. I avoid Tim like he’s got leprosy. 

KYLE: [Laughs]

BRUCE: Like I don’t want to. He’s just like –

KYLE: Yeah, yeah!

BRUCE: Right? In fact, the third time I didn’t even answer the phone because I was so convicted that I knew it was God calling through him, and so I didn’t even want to. So Sunday morning I’m staying away from him! Well after church the Lord convicts me and He says Tim doesn’t think he hears My voice. Tim doesn’t think he’s hearing Me. And He said unless you tell him what’s happened these last three times He’s not going to know he hears Me! But then I had to admit that I had lied to him on the phone three times and so I fought with it all Sunday. Monday morning I picked up the phone and called him and I said Tim, like three weeks ago on such and such a day why did you call me? And he said I was just driving down the road and you just popped in my mind and I thought oh, I’d better give, you know I’ll give Bruce a call. And he said why? And I said well like a week ago why did you call me? And he said the same thing.

He said you just – you know I just had a thought come to my mind. See how Bruce is doing so I thought I’d give you a call. And I said well Saturday, just a couple of days ago why did you call me? He said actually that was different. He said I was taking a nap. He said and I sat right up from that nap and I thought I just need to give Bruce a call. And he said and you didn’t answer the phone. He said I called Lori and she said she just talked to you. He said why didn’t you answer the phone? And then I admitted to him that I had all three times he called seconds before I was about to smoke marijuana! And he’s like well that’s so strange! He said what a coincidence!

KYLE: Yeah!

BRUCE: [Laughs]

KYLE: And it was God talking to him the whole time! And I think.

BRUCE: But he didn’t realize it!

KYLE: And he didn’t realize it!

BRUCE: He didn’t. 

KYLE: And I think so many people can relate to that! [Music] God is talking to us and we don’t realize it’s Him! And I want us to pick up on that when we come back after the break! Stay with us!

The person who fears God says I want to be so far away, so close to Dad, so close to my Daddy, that I’m so close to Him I can’t even see that line of sin. Okay? That’s the attitude they have. You understand what I’m saying, they’re not saying how close can I get and not, and not fall in. What is it to fear God? It is to venerate Him. That’s a big word which means to honor, to respect, to esteem, to value, to reverence, to stand in awe of Him more than anything or anyone else. We firmly embrace God’s heart so we love what He loves, we hate what He hates, what is important to Him becomes important to us, what is not so important to Him is not so important to us. Remember Jesus said there are weightier matters. Are you with me? What is the evidence that somebody truly has the fear of God in their life? Okay? Now remember, the Holy Spirit, one of His manifestations is the fear of the Lord.

Remember He’s the Spirit of wisdom, the Spirit of counsel, the Spirit of might, the Spirit of understanding, the Spirit of knowledge, and the Spirit of the dear of the Lord and Jesus delighted in the fear of the Lord. What is the evidence that somebody truly has the fear of the Lord in their life? Okay? Well, number one, they reverence His presence. I talked about that in Brazil. But the second thing that you see in their life is they tremble at His Word. Do you know how the Bible talks about trembling at His word? What does it means to tremble at His word. Number one it means that you’ll obey Him instantly. Okay? Huh— I, I still see some looks and I want to make sure you’re really clear, [and] you who are watching this video. When I say what is the evidence of the fear of the Lord, let’s put it to you like this way: let’s say I’ve got an outlet and I want to know is there, is that outlet is it live or is it dead? Well if I put a brand new blow dryer in and it’s a working blow dryer in that outlet and I turn the switch on and hot air starts blowing, that’s evidence that that is a good outlet. Correct?

AUDIENCE: Yes. That’s right.

JOHN: So what I’m asking is what is the evidence, what is the outward evidence in somebody’s life that they truly have the fear of the Lord? Number One: they’ll obey God instantly. Number Two: they’ll obey God even if it doesn’t make sense. See has God ever told you to do something that didn’t really make a lot of sense to you?

AUDIENCE: Yes, he has!

JOHN: Number Three: it means you’ll obey God even if it hurts. Number Four: means you’ll obey God even if you don’t see a benefit. Okay, let’s look at Esther. She’s queen to the Persian king. And her cousin says you got to go before the king. And you got to remember even though she’s wife to the king, she can’t walk in that, that court room because she wasn’t scheduled. And if she walks in and he doesn’t point that scepter her head comes off. She had everything to lose and she had nothing to gain. She had nothing to gain by going in there. What, what good would it do her? I mean yeah, all the Jews were going to be destroyed on a certain day. But nobody knew she was a Jew, she’s queen, she’s not going to be destroyed. So she has everything to lose including her head and nothing to gain but she still obeyed God, she feared God. And Number 5: it means you’ll obey Him to completion. Saul did 99.9 percent of what God asked him to do. Yet Samuel still looked at him and said you disobeyed God, you rebelled against God.

Think about it, he killed every Amalekite except one person. Now here’s the scripture I wanted to bring you to “cause this is the, I think, this is the jugular vein scripture in the Bible on the fear of the Lord. Psalm 25:14. It says “The secret of the Lord is with those who fear Him, and He will show them His covenant.” Now I want you to listen to that: The secret of the Lord, or the secrets of the Lord are with those who fear Him. Now I want to ask you a question to all my audience, if you’re watching by video answer me. How many of you have secrets in your life, let me see a show of your hands, show your hands. Okay, what do I do with the rest of you? Pray with for your lying now or later?

sidroth on January 1st, 2021

SID: Hello. Sid Roth here with Ivan Tuttle. Ivan, you’ve had some encounters that few people on Earth have had in the invisible realm. You were raised in a Christian home.

IVAN: Yes.

SID: You even went down the altar and accepted Jesus, but you quickly left the things of God. It had a lot to do with a difficult childhood. Tell me a little bit about it.

IVAN: Well, Sid, I was diagnosed with ADHD at a much later age, but what we didn’t know is as a child, I had ADHD. So I was constantly on the move. I had a father that had a very angry streak to him, an angry side to him. My father would beat me with a belt. In fact, if you look at X-rays, you’ll see ribs in my back had been broken from my dad actually hitting me with a belt.

SID: That’s really hitting.

IVAN: Yeah. That’s really hitting. That’s beyond a normal hit. So yeah, I went through a lot of things like that. I spent most of my time alone as a child playing in the woods, et cetera, things like that.

SID: At 26, you had a blood clot that resulted in his death. As a matter of fact, this was a while ago, this was in 1978. I’m going to take you back to the time. You’d just gotten out of the hospital. It’s 9:20 PM. Something woke you by grabbing you. What was that?

IVAN: Yeah, Sid. I got home from the hospital and finally I went to sleep around 9:20. Something grabbed a hold of my left wrist. When it did this, it pulled me right up out of the bed. I mean, it just jerked me out of the bed like I was nothing, like I was a ragdoll. I tried to fight it. That’s the first instinct you have.

SID: Of course.

IVAN: I was trying to do this, and this thing, I realized all of a sudden that, hey, this is a demon. I knew instantly I was going to Hell, and I knew that’s where I was heading. This demon took me, and I started hearing these screams. I started smelling this awful smell, and this demon just kept taking me. It just kept traveling. You feel you were going. This demon took me to Hell. I’m in Hell and I’m looking around in Hell, and I’m seeing all these different people, even people I recognize. Even some from my childhood that I saw. I saw former pastors. I saw—

SID: You saw people that you felt were Christians.

IVAN: Oh yes. Yes. You see, one of the things that happens is when you’re in the spirit after you pass on, when you look at somebody else, you instantly know everything about them. There doesn’t have to be communication because you know everything about them. So what happens is that you’re looking at these people and you’re kind of speaking to them and they’re telling you, and you just read everything that’s happening in their life. So you know exactly what they did. It’s amazing because these are not people you would expect to see there. You just wouldn’t. But yet these people are in Hell and they’re tortured. The torturing that goes on there, Sid, is unbelievable. But the thing that I think is the lasting impression on me was the hopelessness. Sid, when you’re in Hell, there’s no hope. I mean, you’re done. Once that happens, you’re done.

There’s no hope because when you try to pray, it’s like an iron ceiling or iron dome over you. Goes nowhere. You’re done. You had your chance when you were here on Earth, and now you’re down there and I’m watching these people as they’re being tortured. They can’t move. They’re solid. They’re put in a place. I don’t see an actual chain, but it’s as if there’s a chain around them and they can’t move. They can swing their hands around and move their feet around, but they’re not going anywhere. These demons are attacking them and attaching to them. I saw a young lady that was 18 years of age when she died. She was hit by a drunk driver, and she couldn’t understand why she was in Hell, but she never accepted Jesus as her savior. And that’s why she was there.

sidroth on December 27th, 2020

ART:  God with us. Amen. Wow. So He’s with you. This agrees 100% with the nature of God, the life and ministry of Jesus, the fullness of the Bible and here’s one of my favorites here to make this just a little bit brighter for you. It wasn’t only Jesus. In Acts chapter 5, verses 12, or verse 12 first, it says that the believers, the Church, was all meeting together in a place called Solomon’s Colonnade and in verse 16 it says that the people— “Crowds gathered also from the towns around Jerusalem bringing their sick and those tormented by evil spirits and all of them were healed.” Jesus had ascended into heaven. He was gone. And now this was the Church ministering in Jesus” name. Everybody healed. Now some of these objections we have one of my favorites is John chapter 5, the Pool of Bethesda. All right?

There was this angel who would come down and trouble the waters. And when that happened, the New King James version says that whoever got in the pool first was healed of whatever condition they had. Now there’s a few things important about that. Because Number One, God would not give more authority to an angel than He would give to His son. So if that angel is authorized to heal whoever of whatever you’d better believe Jesus can heal whoever of whatever. He wasn’t just led to some people and not to others. But that’s what some people bring up as an argument about this passage because it says here a number of sick, diseased and injured people used to lie. And Jesus shows up on the scene. He sees this man who’s been crippled for I think it was 38 years and He has compassion on him when He finds out how long he’s been in this condition. And He goes up to him and asks him do you want to be made well? Of course I do. Lays hands on him. Get up. Take your mat. I don’t remember what He did but He told him to get up. The guy gets up and he’s healed.     Jesus slips away into the crowd. Now this guy is walking through the Temple courts carrying His mat and the people that are there, the religious folk look at him and they say what are you doing on the Sabbath carrying a mat?

AUDIENCE: (LAUGHTER) ART: And this guy goes the guy who healed me told me to carry my mat. You know I think that’s a little good authority. Right? You know? They said who was it? He said I don’t know because Jesus had slipped away into the crowd. So that gives us a clue that at this point in Jesus” ministry John chapter 5 it’s early. He’s still flying under the radar. Remember He’s in Jerusalem. If He’d come out and healed every single person there He might have been crucified early instead of at the fullness of time after He had done everything He was sent here to do. Now there’s another aspect to this. He comes back to the man and He says do you believe in the Son of Man? Do you believe in the Messiah? And He has this conversation with him. Introduces Himself to him.

This was a guy who had no faith. He didn’t know who Jesus was. He didn’t believe in Jesus being the Messiah. You know? Yet he was healed anyway because Jesus ministered to him. Now why didn’t Jesus heal all the other sick people who were there at the Pool of Bethesda? Number One, like we said, flying under the radar. But Number Two. I think this is really interesting. Just because He didn’t lay hands on everyone doesn’t mean He didn’t want everyone healed. I have people come to me and ask me if you really believe God wants to heal all and you’re seeing all these results like you say you’re seeing, which personally one on one I see a majority healed. I don’t see 100%.

SID: I’m here with Colonel James Durham. James, you’ve spent a career in the military, over 30 years, but your faith has been so stretched by your supernatural stories of what happened to you in the military. You had visions, you visited heaven many times. Tell me what you saw about our power grid going down.

JAMES: This was actually a two part series of visions. In the first one, suddenly, I found myself translated in the spirit to a place and it looked like an ancient factory. Everything was made out of wood. There was very little metal there. But in the middle of this open bay, there was an absolutely huge machine. And as I looked at it, I had never seen anything like that in my life. And my thoughts were, there’s probably no one on earth alive today who knows how to operate that machine, but at one time, people knew how to make that machine work.

It had long leather belts on it that I thought were probably attached to a water wheel, or something, to make the power for the machine. And the Lord said to me, “There’s a time coming when people are going to have to learn, again, how to build and operate machines that don’t require electricity or fossil fuels, in a while.” So then, I suddenly went into a different place in a vision. I was walking through this large area and it looked really desolate.

I saw tools that had been just discarded there, and there were many, many different kinds of tools, and it looked like some kind of really raging fire had swept through the area, and some of those big metal tools had actually melted together and become totally useless. As I continued to walk, there was a pile of computers, totally useless. No electricity, no grid, no internet. And then I saw cell phones on the ground. And I heard the Lord say again, “A day is coming when all of these things that you’ve become accustomed to, are going to go away because of the power grid, and you will have to learn to trust in me, and you will have to learn to do things in different ways.”

SID: You also had a vision in which Jesus said to you, “I’m coming soon, and my people are not ready.” Is this why you wrote your book on prepping? Because the world just doesn’t need another book on prepping.

JAMES: Absolutely right. And in a series of visions, and in two of them, that’s when the Lord spoke to me this way. And I saw the Lord coming with the white robed army of heaven. They were on horses, they’re coming my way, and I’m excited about seeing them. But just as they got to me, Jesus stopped, and he looked right into my eyes and he said, “Behold, I’m coming very soon, and my people are not ready.” And there was a sadness in his voice on that last part.

And then a few days later, I was in heaven again. The same kind of experience. Jesus rode right up to me and he said something a little different this time. This time, he said, “Behold, I’m coming very quickly and my people are not prepared.” And I felt this strong urging in my spirit that the Lord was telling me, “You and others need to begin to prepare, and you need to teach other people how to prepare.” And not to do some of the typical things that people do when they’re thinking about this—

When I say what is the evidence of the fear of the Lord, let’s put it to you like this way: let’s say I’ve got an outlet and I want to know is there, is that outlet is it live or is it dead? Well if I put a brand new blow dryer in and it’s a working blow dryer in that outlet and I turn the switch on and hot air starts blowing, that’s evidence that that is a good outlet. Correct?

AUDIENCE: Yes. That’s right.

JOHN: So what I’m asking is what is the evidence, what is the outward evidence in somebody’s life that they truly have the fear of the Lord? Number One: they’ll obey God instantly. Number Two: they’ll obey God even if it doesn’t make sense. See has God ever told you to do something that didn’t really make a lot of sense to you?

AUDIENCE: Yes he has!

JOHN: Number Three: it means you’ll obey God even if it hurts. Number Four: means you’ll obey God even if you don’t see a benefit. Okay, let’s look at Esther. She’s queen to the Persian king. And her cousin says you got to go before the king. And you got to remember even though she’s wife to the king, she can’t walk in that, that court room because she wasn’t scheduled. And if she walks in and he doesn’t point that scepter her head comes off. She had everything to lose and she had nothing to gain. She had nothing to gain by going in there. What, what good would it do her? I mean yeah, all the Jews were going to be destroyed on a certain day. But nobody knew she was a Jew, she’s queen, she’s not going to be destroyed.

So she has everything to lose including her head and nothing to gain but she still obeyed God, she feared God. And Number 5: it means you’ll obey Him to completion. Saul did 99.9 percent of what God asked him to do. Yet Samuel still looked at him and said you disobeyed God, you rebelled against God. Think about it, he killed every Amalekite except one person. Now here’s the scripture I wanted to bring you to “cause this is the, I think, this is the jugular vein scripture in the Bible on the fear of the Lord. Psalm 25:14. It says “The secret of the Lord is with those who fear Him, and He will show them His covenant.” Now I want you to listen to that: The secret of the Lord, or the secrets of the Lord are with those who fear Him. Now I want to ask you a question to all my audience, if you’re watching by video answer me. How many of you have secrets in your life, let me see a show of your hands, show your hands. Okay, what do I do with the rest of you? Pray with for your lying now or later?

AUDIENCE: (LAUGHTER)

JOHN:  Everybody has secrets in their life. How many of you know all secrets aren’t bad? Okay? So your mind went to the negative on that one. Okay?

AUDIENCE: (LAUGHTER)

 JOHN: All right, so let me ask again how many of you got secrets in your life? Everybody’s got secrets. All right. Now this is, this is, I want you to honestly answer this question: Who do you share your secrets with and I’m going to give you two choices. Choice Number One, okay: acquaintances? Choice Number Two: intimate close friends? 

AUDIENCE: Close friend, intimate close friends.

JOHN: Intimate close friends. God’s no different. God says I share My secrets with My intimate close friends and by the way My intimate close friends are those who fear Me. Now let me show you I’m not taking this out of context. I’m going to read Psalm 25:14 same psalm out of the New Living Translation: “Friendship with the Lord is reserved for those who fear Him.” So you know what God is saying right there? Not everybody is My friend. Let me be more specific: not everybody in the church is My friend.
