SID: Hello. Sid Roth here. Welcome. Welcome to my world where it’s naturally supernatural. My guest has trained thousands of Bible believers that never prayed for the sick, never saw miracles and they’re starting to see miracles. I mean, not minor miracles, I mean blind eyes opened, deaf ears hearing, people in wheelchairs getting out, and he says he can equip anyone to do that. Anyone interested? Me, too. You know, Steve, one of the things that I really appreciate about you is you’re saying that you don’t need to be a TV star. You don’t need to have a great gift from God of healing. All you need is the teaching of the Word and doing it. Really, people see blind eyes opened, deaf ears opened, the crippled walking, the dead raised, and they don’t have any special gifts?

 

STEVE: And they don’t have any special gifts, Sid. You know, even in the last few weeks as I’ve been to five or six nations, I’ve watched [people] who have come with me from all over the developed world with no training. I spend a day with them and we get out, and in the last few weeks I can’t even tell you how many blind eyes open, how many deaf ears open, mutes speaking because it’s our inheritance.

 

SID: I understand what you’re saying, but I’ve always been told you have to work up your faith. You start with a headache then you work for five or six years to get deaf ears open. You don’t see that as a necessity, do you?

 

STEVE: Absolutely not. You know, I think of a guy Rick, who we did some training in Africa and we finished early. I said, “Why don’t you guys just go up and pray for somebody.” And he went up, and he only made it about 300 yards, and he found a kid who was born completely deaf, and the Lord opened his ears. He didn’t have any track record. He just had discovered by spending the day together that this is part of his inheritance.

 

SID: Now you’re a spiritual father. You mentored a gentleman that has work in India.

 

STEVE: Yes.

 

SID: What did he do?

 

STEVE: Oh, he’s done wonderful things. He started with just him and his wife and he now has over 600,000 in his church.

 

SID: Did you get that, 600,000, starting with just him and his wife? Now that is growth.

 

STEVE: That is serious growth and it’s all about multiplication, not addition. You know, just in the last three and a half months, and I checked with him just before this show, he has started another 5,020 churches, over 200,000 people in the last three and a half months. So God is moving in a remarkable, remarkable way. Last year, he baptized 150,000 people and this year it will be more than that.

 

SID: There is a story you tell that it got to me. You talk about praying for a deaf mute and God speaking to you.

 

STEVE: I’ve seen the Lord do that so many times. But when I prayed for that man, here’s what happened. I took a team. We were in Mexico, actually. I took a team and the first night there was a word of knowledge and an 11-year-old boy was brought forward who had been mute his entire life. And one of the team prayed for him, not me, and he instantly spoke. Sid, it was like flicking a light switch. He just spoke fluently. The next night I was in another town. After we preached the Gospel, people came forward, a lot of people came forward and I began to pray and ask the Holy Spirit to just come and fill them. And it was a 13-year-old girl who had been deaf since she was three when she got meningitis, and suddenly her ears were open. She was crying. Her mother was crying. Everybody was just excited. I felt this sadness come over me and couldn’t understand it. So I stepped back. Nobody was looking at me, they were looking at what was going on there and I said, “Why do I feel sad?” And he said something I’ll never forget. It was one of those markers in life. He said to me, “Remember the boy last night who couldn’t speak and then he could?” I said, “Sure.” He said, “You see that girl who was deaf and now she could hear?” I said, “Yes, Papa.” He said to me, “I have been waiting for years to do that, but nobody would release it.”

 

SID: That was the statement that got to me.

 

STEVE: Sid, how much is Heaven waiting to release in all our towns and all our cities just waiting for us to release it?

 

SID: You do seminars where you teach people how to release the power of God and there was a young boy in the seminar, just nine years old. He was there just because he was waiting to go to school. That was in India, but something dramatic happened to him. He picked up a lot more than most people would have thought.

 

STEVE: It was interesting. He actually, we thought he was sleeping on the back, on the pew and but he had been learning. The next day after school, he burst in the front door and he said to his mother, “It works! It works! I did what Uncle said!” And he prayed for a friend who had been chronically sick and he was healed. Two days later, I took him, little nine-year-old Abasheik [sp] and some other young people to a very remote Indian village and I started to tell him about Jesus. A crowd gathered and then I had these young people start to pray for the sick, and nine-year-old Abasheik prayed for a 35-year-old man who had been deaf his whole life, and his ears opened, and it caused a move of God in that whole village.

 

SID: I would like to know the very first person you prayed [for] that was sick, what happened?

 

STEVE: It was in 1977, and I was a new believer. I got a phone call. My friend’s sister had been in a car accident. She had broken vertebrae, crushed discs, would I please come and pray for her. I had never prayed for anyone. I prayed for supper, that’s about it. I went to the house. I was nervous, trying to pretend I wasn’t. They’re all looking at me and I went to pray for her, and someone said, “Aren’t you going to anoint her with oil?” And I’m thinking, what is that? But on the outside, I said, “Oh yes, of course, of course.” And somebody got me a bottle of Crisco and I just let her have it because I didn’t know any different. So I prayed what might have been one of the slipperiest prayers, and I prayed and it was rather a pathetic prayer. I just kind of mumbled. I was so nervous. And when I was done they all looked at me like, that’s it? And the Lord instantly healed her. And in fact, there was a series.

 

SID: Were you shocked?

 

STEVE: You bet. I was really shocked.

 

Woman: Praise the Lord! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you, Jesus. Thank you.

 

SID: He doesn’t pray for someone else for another six years. But there was a dramatic change in his life when he was challenged. If you will pray for 200 people you’ll kick right into that gear. He did it, it worked. And when we come back I want to find out what that nine-year-old Indian learned that caused him to walk instantly in miracles. Be right back.
