SID:  Hello, Sid Roth, your investigative reporter here with Isaiah Reed. He was known as the most vicious pimp in Hawaii. Isaiah, you were doing a drug deal that went bad with some Colombians. Tell me about that? 

ISAIAH:  I was living in Tokyo, Japan, just to kind of give you a little background and a friend of mine was taking care of the drug operation out of Denver, Colorado. And he wanted to retire. He felt as though, because we had made so much money that year, he felt as though we were very fortunate. We had all this money; we really didn’t have any disease, because I was also a drug user, sleeping with the prostitutes. I sold flesh, but I also indulged in the flesh that I sold.  So he feels that because we had got away so long, no really, no incarceration, been arrested but never convicted of anything. He thought it would have been a wise choice if we quit. I didn’t know no other life style to live. I was living out of Japan, also operating out of Amsterdam where prostitution and drugs is legal, I said you know we have finally got our foundation, we don’t need to quit. We have places where authorities really can’t do anything to us; we aren’t touchable at this point. But he was very adamant about it. He had picked up a Bible and he didn’t want his mother to die with him still living this lifestyle. 

SID:  Right. 

ISAIAH:  And she was getting up in years. And anyway, the long and short of it is, I flew to Denver, first class, to convince him to stay in the lifestyle, so I bought a first class ticket to run into a bullet. And once again, he had the word, and he was going on. I said you’ve been talking to my father, you stay away from that woman, you know, she’s, you know she’s contagious. And he said no, no, this has just been, and it was just a Gideon Bible out of the hotel. I didn’t want to hear, I was just so adamant about living my lifestyle, so I said, well I’ll go do the drug deal since I’m here. And we had done the drug deal with these Colombian associates of mine for many years. So it was nothing to be unusual, you know I was on my guard, I had my guns with me, you know the usual kind of a setting… 

SID:  Right. 

ISAIAH:  Anyway, at the conclusion of the deal, we get in the back seat of the car, I’m going to get them to take me to the airport so I can go back to Tokyo and as we were driving along, one of my friends took out a 38 automatic, put it to the base of my head, and shot me. The bullet went you know into my brain, through my ear canal. And I still have the bullet in my brain today, disintegrated my jawbone, cracked my skull, and then he shot me again, went through my nose, through the roof of my mouth down my throat, and landed in the top vertebrae of my spine. And then they began to stab me and stab me and stab me, and they stabbed me 16 times. And after I was murdered, after I was dead, they hid my body in an alley, and I stayed there a little over two and a half hours where I died. And how I got found, a car ran over me, and that’s how they discovered… 

SID:  So you’re shot twice, you’re stabbed, you’re bleeding to death and now a car runs over you for good measure.  Someone really wants to see you dead.  Okay. 

ISAIAH:  And you see I had already bled to death, I mean I was already dead, but when you die you don’t go to sleep, the real you is on the inside. This is just an earth suit that you can survive in this atmosphere; you know you can destroy the earth suit, but you can’t destroy your essence, the soul. Bullets can’t kill it, knives, drugs; disease cannot touch who you are on the inside. 

SID:  So, Isaiah, here’s the question I have. They take you to the hospital, or they took you to the morgue – where did they take you? 

ISAIAH:  Well, they took me to, you see when the paramedics came, they call back and they say dead on arrival, or you know he’s dead…   

SID:  I see. 

ISAIAH:  And then they bring you back where the, I guess the chief of surgery, or staff, whoever signs the death certificate has to look at it and certify that it is a death. 

SID:  All right listen.  You remember that tenacious mother of Isaiah. She gets a phone call that her son is dead.   Let’s see how she reacts because she is so sure that her son will not be a pimp, but he’ll be a preacher. Let’s go to Isaiah’s mother.    

MOTHER:  The doctor says, we have you son here in the autopsy room, he was pronounced dead of arrival here at Denver General Hospital and he began to describe some of the things that he was seeing inside of Isaiah. He was attempting to do the autopsy, and he said he had bled to death due to gun wounds, and he had been stabbed.  And he began to talk, and I say, well I need to make contact with him, I need to make contact with him. At that time I didn’t know they were monitoring me where I could be heard over the hospital, so I asked him if he would put the phone to Isaiah’s ear… 

SID:  Okay.  So now she knows what’s going on, what the deal is. Isaiah, question: would you be in this chair today, alive, if it wasn’t for what your mother did? 

ISAIAH:  No, definitely. 

SID:  All right, let’s hear her prayer right now.  Let’s go back to that telephone call.  Mother:  Lord you promised.  You promised me that my son would be saved.  You promised that I would see him saved.  I cannot accept this phone call that he is dead, that is not my son because my son is saved and full of the Holy Ghost. Lord, you promised me a prophet and not a pimp. And I begin to call life, life, life, life back into that body. And I understand that as I began to call life back into his body, he began to breathe again. 

SID:  Now Isaiah, after your mother prayed, you came to life. 

ISAIAH:  Yes. 

SID:  I mean they literally put it so you could hear, your spirit man, your dead body could hear, and is it true that you had the nerve to compliment the doctor that you came back to life? Did you do that? 

ISAIAH: Yes, well I didn’t you know I didn’t want to be saved, and so when my mother started telling me about the power of God, and how the Holy Spirit raised me from the dead, and how she prayed and interceded and stood in the gap for me, I had heard that, you know all my young life, and here she goes again badgering me, and Bible beating me again, and so I didn’t want to hear it, so I was looking for man’s opinion and man’s authority. So I asked the doctor, and the doctor basically said we didn’t have anything to do with any… 

SID:  Well now, if he didn’t have anything to do with it and you were dead, you had to come to the conclusion that your mother prayed and God performed a miracle.  So did you immediately turn to Jesus? 

ISAIAH:  Oh no, uh uh … 

SID:  No! 

ISAIAH:  No, because that wasn’t a good enough explanation for me, I couldn’t, in order for me to turn to Jesus I had to admit that my life was a lie, and Jesus is the truth. And it’s hard for any individual to admit that they are in error in any way, because of our pride and our arrogance, you know, Frank Sinatra, ‘I Did It My Way’ kind of attitude. And so I would rather be dogmatic going the wrong way than humble myself and submit to the truth. But thank God, my mother was even more dogmatic to the truth. 

SID:  She was tenacious.  I’ll tell you everyone needs a mother like Isaiah had. So he finds himself at a Christmas party, it was a long Christmas party, and this was what, about three years later? 

ISAIAH:  Yeah. 

SID:  And something highly unusual occurs.   Don’t go away, we’ll be right back.
