SID: Hello. Sid Roth here. Welcome to my world where it’s naturally supernatural. My guest Eddie James says if you are fascinated with God you will have a Jesus encounter. He just got back from Heaven and there is an anointing that will cause you to be fascinated with God and have your own Jesus encounter. You know, Eddie James, every time I meet someone that has known the Lord from a very young age, you provoke me to jealousy because you didn’t have to go through all the junk. I didn’t even know who Jesus was until I was 30. But you’re singing for the Lord, you’re singing in church. But one thing I’ve observed about you, yes, I love your worship ministry because you sing to God, and there’s something very special about it, but there’s something else that intrigues me. You have such a broken heart for the hurting and the lost. Obviously it came from God, but how did you get such a broken heart for the hurting?


EDDIE: I come from a great family. The Lord has really used our family. Our family fell on some hard times and eventually my mother and father were broken apart, and there was a definite wound that happened in my heart as a result of that. And it’s interesting how you could be ministering in church and [are] still bleeding. But the Lord has done a work in my life and I believe that that sense of brokenness plays a huge role into why my heart has been tender. I’ll never forget when I began to work with Teen Challenge, which wass my first worship leading job, which was when I did Assembly of God Church with the Teen Challenge program, they began to take in these people that would come in from the streets, and I was blown away by that. I can remember like it was yesterday, I am watching this father who had two sons that had just begin to, you know, one was nine and one was like seven, and they had just shared a scripture in front of a couple thousand people, and I’m on the keyboard. And it was great. The whole church stood up and clapped as we were kind of doing that. And as I looked to my right, the father comes to these boys, and says, “I’m so proud of you. I’m so just moved by what you did.” And I saw a picture of what I had longed for, and I began to break. I just began to weep. And I could remember that like yesterday, just that moment for some reason triggered and unlocked this deep pain that I had been carrying for so long. And it was through that experience that the people—


SID: There is something that happens for a true worshiper.




SID: That whatever the world has done to you, you can be free.


EDDIE: That’s exactly right.


SID: You take people off the streets that are hardened, drug addicts.




SID: But something just happened to you. You actually had a portal come down from Heaven. Tell me briefly about that.


EDDIE: The Holy Spirit just met us. We were in this extended time of seeking, fasting and prayer. The Holy Spirit hits me and I am on the floor, and I’m not just one prone to fall out. But I am on the floor and my spirit begins to go up into what I can only describe as this portal that opens up over Heaven and this, what seems to be a beam of light that connects where I’m at to the heavenly place. And my spirit begins to go into that place of glory and that place of the presence of the Lord, and there I am getting books from Heaven beginning to be put into my spirit, filled with songs or filled with just new creative writings that I would be doing in the earth. And so I would go back and forth and my spirit would go into Heaven, grab these books and then come back into my spirit, and I could feel my body responding to what the Holy Spirit is doing in me at that time. It changed my life.


SID: Since this visitation to Heaven, just in your worship, miracles are breaking out. Tell me a few recent miracles.


EDDIE: Okay. This has been awesome. So we were in the Philippines and just conducting an amazing meeting. And there was a woman in a wheelchair, she comes up to be healed, and the Lord miraculously heals this woman. She is running around the stadium. I pick up the wheelchair and I’m running around with the wheelchair behind this woman who actually is magnifying the Lord. We’re also in the streets of Manilla and there’s a, we’re doing an outreach and there’s a lady there who the doctor said that her baby was dead. There’s no heartbeat and they’re getting ready to take the baby out. And we begin to pray to release healing into this woman, and the baby begins to kick as our hands were on the lady’s stomach. Crazy stuff.


SID: I have to tell you, I love the pop-up miracles in Haifa, Israel.


EDDIE: Oh Jesus. Okay, so we were there for the Feast of Tabernacles and I’m telling you, it was an amazing moment. I’m there really just leading worship. I’m standing there getting ready to do a teaching, and as I’m doing that, they just begin to pop up and say, “I just want you to know my knees got healed.” Somebody says, “I just want you to know God just healed my back and my shoulders.” And somebody else gets up and begins to declare how God is healing them of something in their ear, something in their eye. It just pops, people just popping up sharing how God, I’m sitting here like, wow. I’m just teaching and people are celebrating.


SID: You’re an observer. You get to that piano, because when he plays, “Be Healed” and sings those words, watch out, pop-up miracles.


Eddie James [music, singing]: If your heart is broken and your spirit wounded, and you see when the one is there for you, have your troubles your tears, pain and fear, and you don’t know what to do, I have a word from Heaven today. Be healed, be healed. He said rise take your bed and go on to do his will. Be healed, be healed. Let his blood make you better ’cause Jesus breaks every fetter. You don’t have to stay the same. O Lord, be healed.
