SID: Hello. Sid Roth here. Welcome. Welcome to my world where it’s naturally supernatural. My guest has found an amazing secret for miracles. Do you know what it is? Chutzpah. Do you know what chutzpah is? It’s a Hebrew word and means “boldness, nerve”. He has hundreds of miracles right in his own little congregation he’s a pastor over. I mean, a hundred people stood up and they said, “I just had a recent miracle.” But these are not just miracles. These are medically documented miracles. Get ready. I was speaking to Pastor Don Nordin and what he just told me is outrageous. At one of his services, he just asked a simple question and the question was, how many of you in the congregation have had recent miracles. Now that’s kind of a risk on your part. But you know, how many people would you estimate stood up in your church that said they had recent miracles?

DON: I would estimate about a hundred.

SID: Did you get that? I mean, how many churches in America could you say, stand up if you just had a recent miracle and have a hundred people stand up. And then you had them actually testify their miracles.

DON: I did. I asked them to give a one-sentence testimony, which is difficult for some people. But a one-sentence testimony of the miracle that God had done in their life. We actually took about 50 of those on that Sunday morning. We didn’t have time to take all of them. But it was amazing.

SID: Let me take you back. Second grade, you’re minding your own business. You’re riding your bicycle and you hear the audible voice of God. What did he tell you?

DON: He told me that He wanted me to preach his word and you got to bear in mind that I’m a second grader and it really, at first, struck fear in my heart. But then I felt this calm peace over me, and from that day, I never had any doubt about what God wanted to do with my life.

SID: Now you say it was an audible voice. You really mean that? I mean, it wasn’t just a thought. I mean, you’re a little kid.

DON: I absolutely heard the audible voice of God. I was actually riding my bicycle and I had stopped, and I heard this voice say, “I want you to preach my word.” And I was by myself, and I actually got off the bicycle and looked around to see who was there, and no one was there except God.

SID: Now at seven, you had already seen three miracles. One was your dad. Tell me briefly about what happened.

DON: My father worked in northern California in the logging woods. He cut timber for a living. And one afternoon, he was about to finish up his day and he felled a tree, and the tree went over and hit another tree and bounced back, and struck my dad across the midsection just below the ribs. And of course, in northern California the trees are very large, and it pinned him to the ground, just crushed him. And he cried out to God, and this tree actually bounced up for a split second. My dad’s testimony is that something grabbed him and just jerked out from under that tree.

SID: Now how does he know it wasn’t just another logger that did that?

DON: Well there were no other loggers around. Everybody was on the other side of the hill. He was the only one in that area. When you’re cutting trees, they don’t work right together because of the danger.

SID: So if I’m understanding you right, it fell down, it struck him really badly. I mean, he’s incapacitated. It swings up, it’s ready to fall down again and just before it falls down again, someone, though no one else was there, pulls him out.

DON: Yes, head first.

SID: So it had to be an angel.

DON: Had to be an angel, and moved him at least six feet, maybe more.

SID: What would have happened if he hadn’t been pulled out that split second?

DON: Well no doubt he would have died if the tree had come back down and rested on him.

SID: How serious was he they took him to the hospital?

DON: Well no one thought my dad would live, including the loggers that were working with him. They put him on a gurney, a cot, and put him in the back of the jeep, and had a long drive over rough terrain to get to the hospital. And when he got to the hospital, the doctors just, they didn’t have any hope for him at all. The person that was in the hospital at that time, it was a small town hospital and the surgeon, the local surgeon was on a seven-day vacation. And so they just allowed my dad to lay on the hospital bed and they did nothing for him for seven days because they were convinced that he was going to die.

SID: Right.

DON: And when the surgeon came back, my dad can remember that the surgeon walked into the room, took a look at him and said, “Well I guess this guy is not going to die after all. We need to do something for him.” His intestines had already set up, gangrene and the whole thing. And they did surgery on my father and three weeks from the day of his accident, he walked out of the hospital on crutches, and God had completely, God completely healed him, completely restored him. My dad is 82 years old today, pastoring a church, and still working a second job in construction, and he’s probably healthier than I am.

SID: Now I notice you use a word, I want you to get it. It’s the audacity, the audacity of faith, the audacity to pray. What does the word “audacity” mean?

DON: The word “audacity” is boldness, confidence, going beyond the map in your life with regard to faith. The Bible says that, “We are to boldly approach the throne of grace to obtain help and mercy in the time of need.” And I believe that when we pray, we should be risking when we pray, pray prayers of risk.

SID: You know, I looked the word up, “audacity” in Webster’s dictionary and I couldn’t believe what I found. One of the definitions of audacity is a Hebrew word, chutzpah. And you know what chutzpah means? It means nerve. Now talking about nerve, I want you to see a doctor in a medically verified miracle, genuine miracle. Don’t you ever say this is faith. We’ll even give you his name, his hospital, everything about him. Don’t go away. We’ll be right back.
