Sid: On yesterday’s broadcast I was speaking to my good friend Jonathan Bernis. You’re familiar with him perhaps you’ve seen him on television “Jewish Voice with Jonathan Bernis.” We were talking about when… how many years ago was that we used to pray in tongues and supernatural languages Jonathan?

Jonathan: Sid we’re coming up on 30 years; it was 1984, 85, 86 so…

Sid: So we used to get together for days of prayer and fasting and praying in tongues. And you started doing things that frankly you didn’t understand and I didn’t understand. As we got deeper into praying in tongues you started travailing like a woman in childbirth and we didn’t even know what was going on. But when you pray in supernatural languages you are prophesying your future. And by the way the devil doesn’t have a clue. And I’m reminded of another experience Jonathan we had. We both went to a camp meeting with Kenneth Hagin, and he called us forward and he prophesied over me in English. And then he prophesied over you but what happened to you when he started to prophesy?

Jonathan: Well the power of God came all over me and He began to speak in other tongues, in other languages. I believe that he was prophesying directly to my spirit. And it could have been about the call to Russia; the Jewish people in Russia in the Soviet Union. But I knew that something was going on it was bypassing my mind. Frankly Sid maybe what he was saying if I had processed it with my mind I would have been in unbelief but because it came out in other tongues it went directly into my spirit and released faith.

Sid: But I found it interesting; he did that because he did not want the devil to even hear this word. I’m convinced of that and the presence of God I mean you were out; you didn’t even… I had to tell you what happened because you didn’t even know what was going on.

Jonathan: I know.

Sid: And actually, I’ll tell you when it was; it was January 26, 1995. Let me read to you and mine was in English. And this is what he prophesied over me. “Earnest sincere desires, hungry in your spirit will be satisfied. Fulness, fulness, fulness ability imparted on to you.” And then he began to laugh (Ha, ha, ha, ha) “Stand the test, win the battle, do the work, great work. Many will be gathered, many, many, many, many.” And you know what? I have found since that point when he started doing (Ha, ha, ha, ha) that when I pray in supernatural languages when the prayer has gotten to heaven and it really has gotten through I start speaking ha, ha, ha, ha. And I know that I’m laughing at the devil you don’t have a clue of what I’m saying Mr. devil you must be going mashuga, you must be going crazy. (Laughing)

Jonathan: That’s right and I begin to laugh hysterically sometimes when something’s been broken in the spirit. And then it materializes in the flesh; it’s an amazing thing. First in the spirit and then in the natural.

Sid: And you had to raise ridiculous sums of money to bring all the people from the United States to the former Soviet Union and do these big Jewish concerts and dance festivals and outreaches. I’m convinced again you were even prophesying the money that would come in for it. And you had it come in in a very supernatural fashion.

Jonathan: Absolutely true and I’m sure that that was the case. Sid when we had our first outreach. You remember that big beautiful hall like the Carnegie Hall of St. Petersburg? When I rented that hall I had no money; no money at all. No money for the hall rental, no money for the advertising, no money for the plan tickets, no money for the hotel, no money for the sound and lights; nothing, nada. And through prayer, and I belive much of it supernatural and other tongues, I got a call from someone that I’d never met that ended up paying for 80% of the entire event. One person; never met him and he heard about me and called me right before I left for Russia.

Sid: But I got to impress on those that we’re mentoring right now if you and I some 30 years ago did not spend days praying and fasting and speaking in supernatural languages I don’t believe these things would have happened. I mean when I walk around It’s Supernatural Ministry and I realize that we have state of the art and the buildings all paid for and we’re all over the world and we’re going now into the Spanish language and we’re in the Russian language all over the former Soviet Union. And we’re in the Farsi language and I say “Who could possibly have believed that?” But Jonathan you said that there was a second key in addition to speaking in tongues that triggered your faith. What was that?

Jonathan: Sid let me just say this “Without faith it’s impossible to please God.” And I don’t think that anything of lasting value; I’m talking about that which remains after the wood, hay, and stubble is burned away happens any other way than through faith. Unless the Lord build the house those who labor labor in vane; and that is built through faith. The second way that we can build faith and hear from God and release things prophetically and see creative miracles is through the word of God. Confession of the Word of God Roman’s 1:17 tells us that “Faith comes from hearing and that hearing by the word of God.” Now that verse has the hearing twice in it. And that’s not by accident; I don’t want people to miss this. There’s two kinds of hearing everyone; there’s hearing with the natural ear and there’s hearing secondly with the ear of the Spirit. And the gateway to the ear of the Spirit is the natural ear; we confess the word of God; we confess the word of God; and eventually we hear it with the inner ear of our spirit. And when it gets into our spirit it releases faith; faith is built up. And when we confess it again it’s creative it has force. And it becomes what we decree drops into the natural realm when we see it come to pass.

Sid: Let me read a prophesy from Malachi chapter 3 verse 16 & 17. It blew me out of the water when I read this the other day. “Then those who feared the Lord spoke to one another and the Lord listened and heard them. So a book of remembrance was written before him; for those who fear the Lord and who mediate on His Name they shall be Mine.” There’s that meditating again.

Jonathan: Yeah, that mediate; that word mediation is different than the Christian concept of meditation. The Christian concept of meditation is to reflect with the mind. But the Hebrew which is Haga and that should be familiar to Jewish people listening we have the Haggadah which is to tell the story of Passover. It’s to confess; it’s to confess; it’s to groan; it’s to sigh to mutter; to speak forth. And when God exhorted Joshua to be strong and to take the land. He said “To mediate confess; speak forth on my word day and night and if you do that you’ll be successful and you’ll take the land.”

Sid: Now, let’s go to this beautiful coffee table book “Confessing the Hebrew Scriptures with a CD inside and it’s called “The Lord is Peace.” Take me through this.

Jonathan: Okay Sid this is a work book that’s what I call these; these series on confessing the Hebrew workbook. It is a beautiful bound book that would be a great coffee table book; with beautiful restful pictures. And so on the back there’s a CD; you put the CD in and you begin to follow along in the English and then the Hebrew. And then I employ a technique a system I learned growing up in synagogue called “Transliteration.” Very few Jewish people can actually read Hebrew anymore so our prayer books have this transliteration which is phonetically sounding out the Hebrew in English so we can read along and be part of the prayers in the synagogue. Well I’ve employed that method to this workbook; so without any study; without any knowledge of Hebrew in 5 minutes you can be confessing scriptures related to this name of God, Jehovah Shalom, or Adonai Shalom. Peace, rest, breaking through anxiety, fear and so on. And you’re actually confessing the word of God in the Hebrew language along with a Hebrew speaker on the CD with beautiful music in the background. And Sid by doing that you’re speaking in the tongue of the prophets; scriptures that directly combat anxiety, fear, tension, depression. And the word shalom is related to completion, the wholeness and it actually drops into your spirit eventually. You’re building faith, it actually changes you; I promise anyone that will actually put this to work will be changed in a week.

Sid: This is brand new but you’ve had a similar one out on healing; but you know what this combines both of them because as you explained the word shalom completeness. Complete in your spirit, in your soul and in your body. So every area of life and this day and age we’re living in many feel as the Orthodox Jews do that we’re in the footsteps of Messiah. And everything that can shake is going to be shaken and if you have built into your spirit the shalom, the completeness of God no weapon formed against you can prosper. But what types of feedback did you get when you did this several years ago? What types of healings and testimonies did you get?

Jonathan: Well, we had some great testimonies Sid; we had people that were completely delivered; supernaturally delivered. I had a very touching letter from a pastor who actually heard about this resource on your program and they ordered the workbook “Jehovah Rophek, the Lord our healer.” And he gave it to a woman in his church who was dying of Leukemia and she began to play it. In fact the doctors gave her 10 to 12 days to live. He gave her the CD and the workbook, she listened to it continually; she confessed these scriptures and she was completely healed. The doctors declared that she was completely healed that she didn’t even have Leukemia cells in her body at all. And then her body began to produce blood cells again. And she has lived to declare the works of the Lord; amazing testimony it’s just one of many that we’ve received through people that have received this and put it to work in their life.
