SID: Hello Sid Roth your investigative reporter here with Dale and Pearl Raatz and February 15, 1997 the same thing happened but a different part of your body. Pearl you and your husband were in church of all places…
SID: And what do you remember?
PEARL: I remember I walked in the church and I had a sensation in my head that I never had before. And I though I was going to pass out so I said to Dale, honey I think I an going to pass out and I sat down in the pew and that is the last thing that I remember until March 21.
SID: What do you remember?
DALE: When she sat down in the pew she said oh my head. And I knew something was not right, and as I started walking towards her she said oh my head, and I knew that is as serious and then she said my head just blew off, she screamed, see she didn’t know she was talking but her spirit man did. And in the meantime she went into convolutions and a comma and she laid there, and everybody thought that she was dead and the first thing that I said that came out of my inner being if you don’t believe the word you will never store it. I said Pearl you will not die you will live declared the works of God, I spoke it out of the spirit and the second thing that came out of me was Exodus 12:13 again I apply the blood to you in the name of Jesus I command the death angle to leave in Jesus name. But it looked like nothing was happening and she laid there with no life in her. And a couple of pastors came in and began to greave with the word of God and a couple of young nurses aid came by and grabbed her by both of her palms and began to shook her head and looked at me and I remember I looked at them and said she can’t die in the mighty man in the name of Jesus.
SID: You were sure?
DALE: I was sure.
SID: Did anyone here you?
DALE: Oh yes, they heard me say that.
SID: Okay what happened next?
DALE: And um.
SID: I mean they were probably thinking oh yah,
DALE: Yes and so finally because nothing happened they called the ambulance and the paramedics came and they worked on her for quite a while and then took her over to the hospital and I followed the ambulance from behind and they finally got her to the hospital it was only about a mile away and the doctor met the ambulance right outside that emergency ward that evening and he took a look at her and he said oh my God she is totally paralyzed. And the paramedics said to the doctor that this is her husband, and he said to me “Sir I am sorry” and I said I understand doc, but I knew that was only temporal.
SID: Okay what happened next?
DALE: And um they took her in and they said that they could not do nothing. Well I walked into that room, the emergency room another pastor and I and the minute I walked into that room I lifted my hands I began to coat the word of God out of my inner belly began to roll the healing scripture of the authority and who we are and what we have in Christ I was speaking life over her, even in that situation. And they couldn’t do nothing for her, so they had to transfer her from Iron Mountain Michigan to Green bay Wisconsin, that is over a hundred miles, in ambulance usually they do that with flight for life, but they knew that was no use they had to get her out of city limits so they didn’t have to haul her back. But she got down there and the evening it was about 10 o’clock, before we got to the hospital, this doc that met me he was a brain surgeon and he told me what they told him in the hospital he said I don’t know what we are going to do with your wife.
PEARL: What he had told us or told him, is that 97% of people who have an aneurisms like I did die instantly. Of the three percent that are left 95% of them will die very shortly, and whatever is left of them is a vegetable they will never they will never be alive except for a vegetable.
SID: Well what did he say was going on inside of your wife’s brain?
DALE: Well because of the damage, that the x-ray showed that there was no use in operating, that is pretty sad; he was expecting her to just die. But 24 hours later and she didn’t die and he said well we see your wife didn’t die so we will see what we can do. But this brain surgeon is the best brain surgeon…
SID: Are you convinced that she did not die because of you speaking gods word over her and believing God?
DALE: Yes I believe in the word of God is alive and powerful but we don’t speak it, we need to realize that God is the supernatural; he wants to show up through his body.
SID: Well what happened next?
DALE: The next they operated on her and it was a four hour operation. They got her back to her room and I stood by her bed and I said Holy Spirit how do I pray over her? And the Holy Spirit through the triune of God spoke to my heart and the first thing that he said was second Corinthians 5:17, if any man be in cross and I said lord I don’t get it. And he says Genesis 1, I turn to genesis 1 and I began to read and it says in the beginning God created the heaven and the earth, the earth will not form in void, but God spoke those things darkness out light come, and as I was reading that immediately the book of Genesis it was good and everything else was wiped out and all I could see was it was good. All of the other words were gone, and I heard the Holy Spirit said to me does Pearl have a brain, the doctors said it was dead. And he says my words are creative, call the dead brain cells live again. So literally I had to either believe what his word says or doubt it, I believe gods word and I laid my hands on her and I began I said in the name of Jesus I speak creative word over your brain cells I command brain cells to be restored in the name of Jesus, and the natural looks foolish I did this for ten days, no change one day two days and when I went to the tenth day the doctor came that morning as I was speaking over her and he looked at the gage and he said to me “Sir” and he said “sir your wife is dying today she is closing down” and walked out. And I heard the word that the spirit speaks to me again Hebrew 10:35, cast not away your confidence which has great recompense and reward. And immediately Mathew 18:19 came to my spirit, if any two agree touching anything they’ve asked. I said father in Jesus name I call on somebody that has my faith in Jesus name. And I walked out of that room, and immediately the phone was ringing in the room I went and somebody said I believe that if for you. And my wife two sisters from Western Minnesota called and they always call my wife Pearly, they said how is Pearly doing today? And I said according to the word of God she is doing great. I already forget what the doctors had said because if we focus on the negatives we will never hear what the spirit of God is saying. Many times we as Christians…
SID: But Dale, Dale, her brain cells are dead,
SID: They have written her off.
SID: There is no hope, but Dale believes if he speaks gods word, a greasing prayer and he does not back off of the integrity of gods word, his wife will live and not die and declare the works of the lord, well you already know the ending because you have seen her, we will be right back to find out what God did, it is outstanding, be right back.© Copyright 2010 sidroth, All rights Reserved.
