SID: Hello. Sid Roth here. Welcome to my world where it’s naturally supernatural. I just love breathing in the rarified air of Heaven. You know, in the 1940s and 1950s, God touched men and women by the Spirit of God, and they had tent meetings all over the United States, major miracles happening. But they made a mistake. They did not teach their generation how they can do what these miracle ministries were doing. They were kind of on a pedestal. But you see, anything they can do, if they had taught their generation, anyone could do, because it’s God that does the miracles. So my guest was a teenager and was mentored by some of the great healing evangelists of the ’40s and ’50s. And I can tell you he wants to mentor you so you can do anything these great miracle ministries did. Could you picture going into a restaurant and seeing a waitress limp a little bit and say, “Can I pray for you?” And seeing her leg straighten out and everyone in the restaurant is listening more than they listen to that advertisement for a stockbroker. And then you stand on the table, well maybe you might not, stand on the table and proclaim the Gospel. How would you like to be able to do that? Well you’re going to be equipped. My guest was born and raised in a home where his parents did not know God. But as a young man, he had an encounter with God. Then at 17, he had an all-night visitation from God in which he was called to proclaim the Gospel throughout the whole world. So he goes to his dad who’s a non-believer, and he says, “Dad, have I got good news.” Remember, his father doesn’t believe in God. And he really put cold water on you, Don, and he said, “You can’t preach the Gospel. You stutter.” And Don found out, first of all, he knew God told him to do it. And so he stood on scriptures and God took the stuttering away from him. That was probably his first miracle. But what about his parents? Now your mom was an invalid. What was wrong with her?

DON: She had a series of terrible conditions that had gripped her body and she had surgery without success, and it released her into being what I call a semi-invalid, where she had limitations in walking and being free from pain and distress.

SID: Okay. So Don convinces his mother to get healed because she heard about one of these men that had a great miracle ministry, William Freeman. As a matter of fact, Freeman had a visitation from an angel. Tell me about that.

DON: Yes he did. He was pastor of a church. He had a great hunger for God. He had worked on the railroad. He was a brakeman and he resigned that to become a full time pastor. And he made a commitment to God, “Lord, when I worked on the railroad eight hours a day I was there. But now that I’m not on the railroad, I want to devote those eight hours to prayer.” And I’ve known very few people who ever had such a commitment. Now I don’t know entirely how long he maintained that, but it was a very vital part of his life. And then one evening as he was in his church study, he just lay himself on the floor meeting God and suddenly the room illumined. It was partly dark and illumined with bright light, and he looked up and there stood a man. And the man said, “I am an angel of the Lord sent by God to give you a gift of healing. You are to go and stretch forth your hands to bring healing to the people. If you can get them to only believe not one thing will stand before you, not even cancer. There’s a great sweeping suffering in the land. There must be an awakening because Jesus is coming soon.”

SID: Okay. Your mother went to this meeting. What happened to her?

DON: When she saw what the Lord was doing and hearing the testimony of the people who had been healed, she received Christ of course as her savior. It was the first great miracle. And then she got in that prayer line and we waited for him to lay her hands on her, “In the name of Jesus, I rebuke the spirits of infirmity that bind your life.” My mother was instantaneously healed. It was a miracle of great delight. And when she came off the platform, I as an 18-year-old young man, I raced down the aisle to meet her and embraced her, and tears were pouring down her face. And she said, “Don, I’m healed. I’m free of pain.” And that was a witness that was to affect, not only my alcoholic dad, but all of my family. They saw the reality of Jesus. He’s alive today. And one by one, every member of my family became a born-again Christian.

SID: Well you know something? I believe, we Jewish people have a Hebrew word, mishpochah, means family. And I believe it’s God’s intent that the Passover blood is over the door post, and it says in Exodus, “A lamb for a house.” Now Don was mentored by Freeman. He traveled with him and he said, “I wonder if I see God if maybe an angel will come to me and then I can have these great miracles.” We’ll find out what happened to him. Be right back.
