SID: Hello. Sid Roth here. Welcome. Welcome to my world where it’s naturally supernatural. My next guest goes out among people that do not know the Messiah and he carries such a strong presence of God that people that do not know the Messiah feel, actually feel the presence of God. They get physically healed, these are people that do not know the Messiah, they get physically healed and then they want to know who the healer is and come to know the Messiah. Now he says his greatest desire is to equip you to do everything he can and even greater. Are you interested? Robbie Dawkins had a life-defining moment at nine, and I believe it could very well be a life-defining moment for you. You see, his parents were pastors and they had a heart for the young kids that were drugs addicts, and they brought a young man in that had nowhere to go. But guess where they put him? In your bedroom.

ROBBY: That’s right.

SID: Tell me about that.

ROBBY: Right beside me in my bedroom, and I don’t recommend that necessarily. But yeah, my dad had a huge heart for people. So he went out one night and found this young man who was a heroin addict and had run away from home. His dad was beating him every day and it was just horrible situation, brought him home, and was helping him get off drugs. In fact, there were less programs for people like that. And so he was helping him get off drugs, and he was really sick in a really bad way, I mean, every day went through DTs and detoxing in his system. And so it was about the third day and I was seeing, I literally had seen my dad have to hold this guy even from hurting himself, you know. And about the third day I woke up and he was had his arm up on the window sill. I had a really high window sill in my bedroom, and he was looking out in the back yard, and his back was faced to me. And I jumped back when I woke up and I saw him, and I said, “Hey, are you okay?” And he turned, and he looked at me, and when he turned and he looked at me I just saw tears streaming down his face, tears all over his t-shirt. And I said, “Are you all right?” And he said, “Robbie,” he goes, “This morning I woke up and I was really sick.” And he said, “I’m going through withdrawal,” and he said, “and Jesus was standing at the end of my bed after I had said, who would want somebody like me, who would want me? You know, I’m messed up. I’m, you know, so sick and so, you know, I’ve done so many horrible things. And then Jesus standing at the end of the bed said, ‘I’ll take you.'” And he got up out of his bed and he ran to him, and Jesus just wrapped his arms around him, and just began to rock him. And his father would beat him every day and, you know, say these horrible things about him, and he just began, Jesus began to whisper in his ear all these things he never heard his father say about him, affirming things, encouraging things, loving things. And with that he, you know, he just said, he totally took away all the addiction. He took away all the shame of all the horrible that he had been doing, you know, and just in an instant just took it all away. And he said, “He just took everything away, Robbie.” And I got up, and I ran to my parents’ bedroom, and I sort of burst in the room, and it was early in the morning, and I woke my parents up, and I startled my dad, and he thought, and he jumped up and he said, “What did he do?” You know, he had thought of me or that something had scared me.

SID: Nine years old.

ROBBY: Yeah, nine. And I looked him and I told him what I saw, and through tears, I was crying by this time. And I looked at my parents, and I said, “That’s what I want to see the rest of my life. I want to see Jesus do that in people’s lives. I want to see Jesus change people like that.” And I’ve been addicted to that ever since.

SID: I want you to have a heart like that. We have a world of people that are falling apart at the seams. So Robbie understands this and he becomes a youth pastor, and he starts praying for people. The only problem is they start getting worse, not better. Really?

ROBBY: That’s true. Every, I mean, it was a running joke at the church that they said, don’t get Dawkins to pray for you. He can turn paper cuts into cancer.

SID: Oy.

ROBBY: I mean, that’s how bad. It was like people, if I prayed for you, you got worse, things got worse. Nobody ever got better, I mean, not even the slightest, you know, easements of condition. Nobody got better.

SID: Okay. With that in mind, he gets a phone call and there’s a woman on the other end of the line and what does she say?

ROBBY: She calls and she says, “You know, I need somebody to do something for my father.” She says, “He’s going in for his third heart bypass surgery. He’s in really bad condition.” She said, “My mom and I had to talk the doctors into doing the surgery. They didn’t want to do it because he’s in such bad shape.” And she said, “You know, there’s not much hope here.” And she goes, “I need somebody to burn a candle, rub some beads, whatever you guys do,” she goes, “I need somebody to do that.” “You know, at this church, we don’t really burn candles or rub beads,” I said, “but I can pray for him.” And of course, in my mind I’m thinking, this poor lady. She got the wrong guy on the phone right now, you know. And so I started praying and I was just like, Lord, thank you for this day. I was just doing what I call a one, two, three prayer. There I was, I just wanted to get off the phone. And all of a sudden I’m in the middle of the prayer, and I’m just saying, Lord, thank you for this day. I even say this, I even say this, Lord, I pray that he put all his affairs in order, I pray that he has the right insurance.

SID: I don’t want you praying for me.

ROBBY: Exactly. Exactly. And I’m like, I pray that he’s, I mean, because I’m doing this guy’s eulogy over the phone. I’m digging a hole, I’m burying him, I’m shoving him in the ground. He’s dead as far as I’m concerned. And so in the midst of this, all of a sudden, I just heard, I heard the Holy Spirit just speak to me, and I just heard him say, “Get out on a limb.” And I was like, that’s weird. I said, I don’t like heights. What does that mean? I don’t want to get out on a limb. And then he spoke to me and said, “Take a risk.” And I had never heard anybody say that phrase in relationship to prayer, faith or anything. I didn’t know what that meant. And then he said, “Open your mouth and I’ll fill it.” And that comes from the Psalms. All of a sudden it occurred to me and he was saying, “I want you to say something you normally wouldn’t say. Open your mouth, let it say something you normally wouldn’t say.” And so I just said, “You know, God is about to,” and I didn’t know what I was going to say next. I had no idea what I was going to say next. And it just kind of flew out of my mouth, “Completely heal your father.” I said, “As a matter of fact, God is going to give your father a brand new heart and he’s going to give him brand new lungs to go with it.” Now she had said nothing about lungs. She had not even mentioned lungs.

SID: I’ll tell you what, hold that thought. And this is so amazing. When we come back you’re going to hear the punchline.
