GRACE: [singing] The atmosphere of Heaven is touching you right now. The atmosphere of Heaven is hearing you right now. Touching you, changing you, making all things new. Fresh oil flowing from Heaven. Fresh oil flowing from Heaven. Lift your hands and receive it. Whoa. The atmosphere of Heaven is touching you right now. The atmosphere of Heaven is healing you right now, restoring you, changing you, make you all things new. It’s fresh oil flowing from Heaven. It’s fresh oil flowing from Heaven. It’s fresh oil flowing from Heaven. Lift your hands and receive right now. Oh. ‘Cause your past over. Your future is bright. So step on in. Come on in. Feel the breath of Heaven. Everything you need is here. Everything, everything, everything you need is here, everything, everything, ooo. It’s fresh oil flowing from Heaven, flowing to you. It’s fresh oil flowing from Heaven. It’s flowing to you. It’s flowing to you right now. Lift your hands and receive the fresh oil, fresh oil, flowing to you. It’s flowing to you right now. It’s flowing to you. It’s flowing to you. Ooo.
SID: Everything you need, Grace Williams, everything you need is yours in the atmosphere.
GRACE: Everything, everything.
SID: Tell me some of the things that are going on when people hear your music.
GRACE: Just an amazing thing. One woman healed of scoliosis. We’ve had people set free of just emotional pain, past hurts. There’s been so much deep inner healing that the Lord has done. We had a young woman set free. She was what they call a cutter, and that’s where you self-mutilate, and it’s a very demonic dark thing. And she said, “When I heard your music I have not wanted to harm myself again.” She said, “I am totally free.” Just from the sound, Sid, the sound of freedom brings freedom to others.
SID: Everything is yours. Everything in that atmosphere, God releases everything. What is God releasing right now?
GRACE: You know what, Sid? I just believe by the spirit, the Spirit of the Lord right now is setting many women free in the name of Jesus. I’m just sensing that there’s many women who have been scared emotionally. And the Holy Spirit right now is reaching in to those deep places of your heart and He is restoring. He is making all things brand new. And the Lord says, “This is a new time and a new season for you.” And I also believe there’s many people set free of depression and oppression, and almost like a spirit of fear has gripped so many of you because you’ve gone through some very difficult things and the enemy has come in and preyed upon that, and it’s like an overwhelming spirit of fear. But God is releasing you today. He’s setting you free. He’s setting you free. Just lift your hands right now wherever you are in your living, just wherever you are, lift your hands and be free, and lift your hands right now [singing] and be healed. Lift your hands and be free. Lift your hands and be healed. [speaking] Just receive that mighty anointing today, today. And the Lord is also healing someone of severe migraine headaches. They’ve been incapacitating where you’re laid out for days. And God is touching that part in your brain right now and He’s bringing total healing and perfect alignment to someone else’s spine, and back and neck problems. You’ve been in an injury and God is bringing perfect alignment right now. And the blood of Jesus is flowing from the top of your head to the soles to your feet. Perfect DNA because you have Jesus’ DNA.
SID: You are special. God told Jeremiah, “Before you were conceived in your mother’s womb I knew you and I called you.” There’s a holy call. You hold on to God. He’s holding on to you right now.
SID: Hello. Sid Roth here. I hope you’re feeling that same peace. That’s what it is. Peace that is just coming across the air waves right now. Now Grace, I said to you, do you see angels often? And you said just a couple of days ago you had a visitation. Tell me about that.
GRACE: You know what? It was just amazing. Just a few days ago I was in my room just worshiping and soaking, and praying, and just seeking the Lord, and I had kind of just gotten to this really peaceful place. And I felt this amazing presence in my room and I opened my eyes, and it was an angel. And I said, “What is your name?” And it said, “Angel of comfort.” And it was this amazing literally like a blanket just surrounded me. And it was like being hugged with the heavenly embrace. It was the most amazing feeling. And I stayed there for probably several hours. I don’t know. I was just totally taken away. It’s funny because we’re talking about this CD, but taken away into this peace place of comfort and deep abiding rest. And I believe the Lord was saying it wasn’t just for me. It was being released in the earth for His people to receive that peace and that comfort, because so many people are going through distressing times and turbulent times, and you know, going through very difficult situations. But the Lord wants to release ministering angels right now to bring that peace and know that everything is gonna be all right.
SID: One of the things I love is that you get your songs from Heaven. And I’ve actually interviewed people that have gone to Heaven, and then many years later after they’ve come back to Earth, they hear the music that’s being released. Tell me, quickly, one song on the album and the story behind it.
GRACE: Well this song called “Holding On” was amazing because I was in my studio playing the piano just singing unto the Lord. And there’s one line of that song that says, “I need your hand in mine.” And I’m just playing and singing, and as I sang that line, Sid, I literally felt and saw the hand of the Lord come down like drop right in front of me. And He pulled me up. He pulled me up into the heavens. And His arm was so strong and so mighty. And in His arms I was safe, and in His arms all fear was gone. And I knew that that was the only place to be, was in His mighty arms.
SID: You know, I’d like you to go to the music set right now and I want you to hear Grace Williams. She’s literally singing a love song to the Messiah. And she’s singing, “I want to hold on to you. I don’t want to ever let go of you.” But guess what? The Messiah is singing back to her and singing back to you.
SID: “I want to hold on to you. I want to hold.” God wants to hold on to you. Grace Williams, “Holding On.”
GRACE: [singing] You are my everlasting love. You’re all I ever need and I’m holding on to you. You will never let me go. I’m holding on to you. I’m holding to you. I’m holding on to you. I live with you my life long beyond the span of time and the sign of you stands still mystified by what we feel. I’m holding on to you. I’m holding on to you. I’m holding on to you. Been dreaming of a love like this. Been waiting oh so long…. I’m in your arms shouldered by your love so strong. I’m holding on to you. I’m holding on to you. I’m holding on to you. I’m holding on to you. I’m holding on to you. Holding on to you. Gonna catch me when I fall right here in your loving arms. Whoa I need your hand in mine. Yeah, yeah, yeah. Holding on to you. I’m holding on to you, to you, yeah. You will never let me go, Lord. ‘Cause you got me in the palm of your hand, right there in the palm of your hand. Whoa your love has been in the palm of your hand. Whoa. Holding on.
SID: Hello. Sid Roth here. Welcome to my world where it’s naturally supernatural. My guest is Grace Williams and she’s been a guest before, and I have to tell you something. My favorite music to just worship God with was Grace’s first CD. But then all of a sudden she sent me a second CD and my experience, Grace, I have to tell you is when there’s a great CD the next one kind of lets me down usually. Well this one did not let me down. This one is called “Take Me Away”. Where did that title come from?
GRACE: You know what? The Lord really named this CD, and I believe it is a musical revelation and a prophetic impartation of Psalm 91, “Being hidden in the secret place.” Being taken to the secret place.
SID: You know, I was recently in Israel and I talked to parents of people in the Israeli army and they said to me that when they meditate on Psalm 91 it gives them such supernatural protection. This one young man’s entire unit had no injuries whatsoever during a time of war. It’s the most supernatural psalm in the Bible. It’s like a musical impartation. I’ll tell you something else I found, Grace. Is that when someone has a prophetic destiny on their life, such as you have, that it’s like the devil tries to snuff out their life before they even get started. That happened to you.
GRACE: Absolutely. It did, Sid. You know, he tried to take me out as just an infant. And I was born premature, had water on my lungs. I was in ICU for over 10 days. The doctors had given up all hope. They told my parents make arrangements. Your daughter is not gonna pull throw. I had gotten so tiny. I was hooked up to all kinds of breathing machines. And they said all hope is gone. And my parents actually cried out to the Lord at that point not even knowing if the Lord was real. And it was a last stitch effort saying, “I don’t know if you’re up there, God, but we’re gonna give it one last shot and pray because our daughter is losing her life.” And God did a miracle and even the doctors said, “We cannot explain this sudden turnaround.” And it was such really a sign and a wonder to my parents that God was real and they ended up finding Jesus soon after that because of that amazing miracle that God did in my life and the Holy Spirit’s touch on my life as a little baby.
SID: Now you can answer my question, but I don’t get this. At age three you started speaking supernatural languages?
GRACE: Yes. It’s amazing because it’s my very first memory, you know, and they say that all your formative years from like zero to four are where all your memories are stored, and really how you’re formed, and those things that are very important are really secured in your mind. So it was interesting that that happened to me at three years of age, because it really is the first memory I had. And I literally remember as if it were yesterday the room upstairs in our house and my mom was in the rocking chair with my older sister, and they had been talking about the Holy Spirit. And all of a sudden she tells the story. I just began to pray in tongues and actually sing in tongues. And she looked over at me and thought, “How does she know what’s going on?” And it was literally like a heavenly language. My spirit was just resounding with the heavenly song, you know, and resounding and singing. And she said it was the most precious thing. And I remember my little heart being so happy and so fulfilled knowing this is what I was called to do, to sing that new song like it says in the psalm, “sing that new song”.
SID: And then at four she just walks up to a piano and starts playing like a little child. What caused you to go to that piano?
GRACE: I just think it was the Holy Spirit unction, because I had never seen a piano before. We were at neighbor’s house and I literally was just so drawn to it. I gravitated toward it. I just went over and I put my little hands up there, and I looked at my mom and I said, “Mom, I want one of these.” So she knew it was something very special because it wasn’t just clunking around like a little toddler. It was a real desire to learn to play the piano.
SID: And then at seven you have an angelic visitation.
GRACE: That was amazing. Still, like I was saying about the other story, so fresh. It was as if it were yesterday. You know, when the Spirit of God speaks to you and gives you what I like to say a destiny dreamer or destiny vision, it’s something that is imprinted on your heart and your spirit forever, and nothing can take that away. Nothing. Nothing can take that away.
SID: And that’s the way I feel. You know, it’s so many years ago that I as a Jewish person had an encounter with the Messiah. But the peace that came into my room at that moment, no one can ever take away. But what’s even better than that, I have that peace right now, you know. It’s not just something that happened 30-plus years ago. I have it now.
SID: But tell me what that angel said to you.
GRACE: So I was caught up in a vision really and I saw music notes encircling the earth and this beautiful like ribbon going around and around, and singing and circling the earth, and piano keys also, and I knew at that moment it was destiny. God was saying, “I’ve called you to sing my song”, His song over the earth. And that’s a song of comfort and peace, and like you said, that undeniable peace, peace that nobody can take away from you. Joy, unspeakable and full of glory, you know. That’s a good thing.
SID: I don’t know about you, but I’m feeling that peace now. I’m feeling that glory now. Wait ‘til you hear her sing. Be right back after this word.
SID: Hello, Sid Roth, your investigative reporter here with Isaiah Reed. Isaiah, what’s going on in your life – how long did it take them to just fix your face with all the stab wounds and bullet wounds?
ISAIAH: Well my total recovery took about two years of therapy, first the plastic surgery then because the gunshot was so close, this was powder burn and my eyes were full of you know the gunpowder I suffered from the explosion. And so I had a lot of trauma in my eye, and then my hearing, and you know my spine and just the whole thing. But my mother said when my God heals He made whole. If I could just take a moment for any parent, any family member once again, you must be tenacious about your home and your family and hold on to a promise that is found in the holy scripture and you have to receive it, you have to go further than your belief, but actually receive that it is done, receive that you have a promise, and I feel as though right now not only in America, but across this land and across the world that if families come together and begin to intercede for their family we would have a revival that would join in a revival of nations, of cities, and of communities. So never stop praying and never stop seeking the truth that is found in the word. And I just feel like the Holy Spirit is touching someone right now that has a son or daughter in drugs, or even murdered or have some kind of crippling disease, believe me, prayer works.
SID: Isaiah three years, we fast forward three years, you are at a long, three day Christmas party and all of a sudden one of your prostitutes, this is a Christmas party by the way, with his prostitutes, one of the prostitutes is having a problem. What happened?
ISAIAH: One of the prostitutes was tired of the lifestyle, and so she wanted basically to commit suicide. Now here we are using drugs, smoking crack, heroin, the syringes, you know the full blown atmosphere of our sin, and all of a sudden she is tired, she’s finished, and the only way that she can see to end this madness is to end her life. And so she wants to jump off the balcony. I didn’t care basically, I wanted to continue, she was just interrupting…
SID: The party.
ISAIAH: The party. And I had already stuck a syringe in my throat to shoot the heroin in my system. And Paul, the other drug dealer that was there says you know what, you need to deal with this situation because if she jumps off of the balcony naturally the police is going to come and we’re all going to go to jail so to speak. So I offered Lisa some money. She didn’t want the money, she said money doesn’t answer everything, you don’t love me and I’m tired of being a piece of meat. And she slapped the money out of my hand. That was a clue, because normally no prostitute will slap money out of your hand, so I asked Sheila, the other prostitute that was there to take Lisa into the bathroom to kind of, maybe two women could talk, or whatever. Sheila didn’t want to have nothing to do with her. So then I said what I’ll do maybe she wants some more drugs, so I gave her a whole thing of crack cocaine, just for herself, she could indulge in, you know, do whatever she wanted with it. She slapped the drugs out of my hand. By this time, rage came on me and I wanted to just knock her unconscious. And as I drew back to punch her in her face, I drew back my fist, and I was getting ready to punch her, all of a sudden out of my, out of me, the crook, the pimp, the drug addict came, let me pray for you. And Paul says pray, who you gonna pray to? He said it must be the drugs, give me some of what you’re using, because I want some drugs that make you pray. And so anyway, Lisa calmed down. And of course I didn’t know anything supernatural at that particular time.
SID: I mean that is the last thing you should have been doing.
ISAIAH: At all. I mean it so…
SID: It’s crazy.
ISAIAH: Yeah, it’s out of the…
SID: But you’re crazy anyway.
ISAIAH: Yeah. And so when I said prayer, the Holy Spirit intervened, and I didn’t know, touched the heart of Lisa, submerged her in His presence, and she was at peace. So I went back, it didn’t even touch me, it didn’t even move me, I went back to what I was doing. And so Paul thought that maybe she was running a scam. He said you know what, you know really make sure she’s okay. I said look at her, she looks like a little angel or something. He says, Nah. I says, Okay, the word prayer worked; let’s pray. He says no, no, I don’t want to pray. I said well whose dope is it? If we don’t pray you don’t get no more drugs. He said, okay, lets pray.
SID: You’re in control.
ISAIAH: Yeah. Its amazing people will rally around marijuana and cocaine, but they won’t rally around Jesus. So anyway, he submitted to that, and so I hadn’t prayed since I was a young person, a teenager, and I was asking you know one of the prostitutes and another dope dealer, I said, throw in some suggestions, what should I do? And so Paul says, why don’t you close your eyes? I said close my eyes, I’m not going to close my eyes, the last time I closed my eyes I got shot in the head twice. The Bible says watch and pray, you know I’m in a room full of drug addicts. So anyway I said I do remember one thing, we used to hold hands. And so I said let us hold hands. And Paul, he was kind of resistant. He said, hold hands, you mean you got queer on me too. I said if you don’t hold my hand you don’t get no more drugs. So he says okay, and we hold hands. So anyway I don’t have no religious format, I just talked like a pimp, like a drug dealer, so I just began to kick it with the man upstairs. I said check this out home boy, you know Lisa’s down here, she’s tripping, you know. I don’t know what her deal is but you know I’m asking you as you know Jingle Bells time, you know Christmas and that kind of thing. Why don’t you give her a chill pill, so she can chill? And signing off, you know. You’re the man, talk to you later kind of thing. Really nice you know, I mean it had no substance to it as far as I knew. But the Lord answered me back.
SID: He spoke to you?
ISAIAH: He said Isaiah. And I thought somebody was play a trick on me, so I looked, but I could hear Him, resonating in my heart, Isaiah; and not only just my name, but challenging me. Posing a question; if I had an opportunity to change my life would I take it? Would I stop being a heroin addict for 30 years? Would I, could I, would I take an opportunity to be forgiven for all the blood and violence that I had shed? Could I take an opportunity to be a loving person instead of abusing and destroying young women’s lives? Do I, would I take a chance if it were offered me? And I said this is the hand that I was dealt, can’t nobody deal me another hand, I’ve got to play this hand out. He says, but I’m offering you, would you take it? I said don’t you know I deserve aids, I deserve hepatitis C; I deserve to be a drug addict? He said you won’t get what you deserve, you get what you negotiate. If I give you an opportunity would you change? I told him I can’t change; nobody loves the pimp, the prostitute, the homosexual, the gang member. Nobody loves us. It’s all a lie, and you can’t help them and I can’t myself. Even if I wanted to change I don’t know how to change. I’ve been at this almost 30 years of my life and I said I hope to die a dope fiend. How in the world can you change me? And He said it once again, Isaiah. And the little boy that had been trapped in this wicked, ignorant body wanted to change and I cried out. And I said if there is a light, and you show it to me, I’ll follow You for the rest of my life. And what took me thirty years to be, He cleaned me up in a nanosecond. And everybody in that room got saved.
ISAIAH: Everybody, that night.
SID: Listen, if God could rescue Isaiah based on a mother’s prayer, what could God do in your family? You know coming from Judaism I understand that at the Passover, the premise is, a lamb, not for an individual, a lamb for a mishpochah – for a family. A lamb for a house; and those of you that are watching right now that don’t know the Messiah, you just plain don’t know – would you trade where you are right now for all those millions you were making?
ISAIAH: No, I’d die for this.
SID: Well you heard that. He would die for this. Choose this day who you shall serve, but as for me and my house, we’re serving the living God.
SID: Hello, Sid Roth, your investigative reporter here with Isaiah Reed. He was known as the most vicious pimp in Hawaii. Isaiah, you were doing a drug deal that went bad with some Colombians. Tell me about that?
ISAIAH: I was living in Tokyo, Japan, just to kind of give you a little background and a friend of mine was taking care of the drug operation out of Denver, Colorado. And he wanted to retire. He felt as though, because we had made so much money that year, he felt as though we were very fortunate. We had all this money; we really didn’t have any disease, because I was also a drug user, sleeping with the prostitutes. I sold flesh, but I also indulged in the flesh that I sold. So he feels that because we had got away so long, no really, no incarceration, been arrested but never convicted of anything. He thought it would have been a wise choice if we quit. I didn’t know no other life style to live. I was living out of Japan, also operating out of Amsterdam where prostitution and drugs is legal, I said you know we have finally got our foundation, we don’t need to quit. We have places where authorities really can’t do anything to us; we aren’t touchable at this point. But he was very adamant about it. He had picked up a Bible and he didn’t want his mother to die with him still living this lifestyle.
ISAIAH: And she was getting up in years. And anyway, the long and short of it is, I flew to Denver, first class, to convince him to stay in the lifestyle, so I bought a first class ticket to run into a bullet. And once again, he had the word, and he was going on. I said you’ve been talking to my father, you stay away from that woman, you know, she’s, you know she’s contagious. And he said no, no, this has just been, and it was just a Gideon Bible out of the hotel. I didn’t want to hear, I was just so adamant about living my lifestyle, so I said, well I’ll go do the drug deal since I’m here. And we had done the drug deal with these Colombian associates of mine for many years. So it was nothing to be unusual, you know I was on my guard, I had my guns with me, you know the usual kind of a setting…
ISAIAH: Anyway, at the conclusion of the deal, we get in the back seat of the car, I’m going to get them to take me to the airport so I can go back to Tokyo and as we were driving along, one of my friends took out a 38 automatic, put it to the base of my head, and shot me. The bullet went you know into my brain, through my ear canal. And I still have the bullet in my brain today, disintegrated my jawbone, cracked my skull, and then he shot me again, went through my nose, through the roof of my mouth down my throat, and landed in the top vertebrae of my spine. And then they began to stab me and stab me and stab me, and they stabbed me 16 times. And after I was murdered, after I was dead, they hid my body in an alley, and I stayed there a little over two and a half hours where I died. And how I got found, a car ran over me, and that’s how they discovered…
SID: So you’re shot twice, you’re stabbed, you’re bleeding to death and now a car runs over you for good measure. Someone really wants to see you dead. Okay.
ISAIAH: And you see I had already bled to death, I mean I was already dead, but when you die you don’t go to sleep, the real you is on the inside. This is just an earth suit that you can survive in this atmosphere; you know you can destroy the earth suit, but you can’t destroy your essence, the soul. Bullets can’t kill it, knives, drugs; disease cannot touch who you are on the inside.
SID: So, Isaiah, here’s the question I have. They take you to the hospital, or they took you to the morgue – where did they take you?
ISAIAH: Well, they took me to, you see when the paramedics came, they call back and they say dead on arrival, or you know he’s dead…
SID: I see.
ISAIAH: And then they bring you back where the, I guess the chief of surgery, or staff, whoever signs the death certificate has to look at it and certify that it is a death.
SID: All right listen. You remember that tenacious mother of Isaiah. She gets a phone call that her son is dead. Let’s see how she reacts because she is so sure that her son will not be a pimp, but he’ll be a preacher. Let’s go to Isaiah’s mother.
MOTHER: The doctor says, we have you son here in the autopsy room, he was pronounced dead of arrival here at Denver General Hospital and he began to describe some of the things that he was seeing inside of Isaiah. He was attempting to do the autopsy, and he said he had bled to death due to gun wounds, and he had been stabbed. And he began to talk, and I say, well I need to make contact with him, I need to make contact with him. At that time I didn’t know they were monitoring me where I could be heard over the hospital, so I asked him if he would put the phone to Isaiah’s ear…
SID: Okay. So now she knows what’s going on, what the deal is. Isaiah, question: would you be in this chair today, alive, if it wasn’t for what your mother did?
ISAIAH: No, definitely.
SID: All right, let’s hear her prayer right now. Let’s go back to that telephone call. Mother: Lord you promised. You promised me that my son would be saved. You promised that I would see him saved. I cannot accept this phone call that he is dead, that is not my son because my son is saved and full of the Holy Ghost. Lord, you promised me a prophet and not a pimp. And I begin to call life, life, life, life back into that body. And I understand that as I began to call life back into his body, he began to breathe again.
SID: Now Isaiah, after your mother prayed, you came to life.
SID: I mean they literally put it so you could hear, your spirit man, your dead body could hear, and is it true that you had the nerve to compliment the doctor that you came back to life? Did you do that?
ISAIAH: Yes, well I didn’t you know I didn’t want to be saved, and so when my mother started telling me about the power of God, and how the Holy Spirit raised me from the dead, and how she prayed and interceded and stood in the gap for me, I had heard that, you know all my young life, and here she goes again badgering me, and Bible beating me again, and so I didn’t want to hear it, so I was looking for man’s opinion and man’s authority. So I asked the doctor, and the doctor basically said we didn’t have anything to do with any…
SID: Well now, if he didn’t have anything to do with it and you were dead, you had to come to the conclusion that your mother prayed and God performed a miracle. So did you immediately turn to Jesus?
ISAIAH: Oh no, uh uh …
ISAIAH: No, because that wasn’t a good enough explanation for me, I couldn’t, in order for me to turn to Jesus I had to admit that my life was a lie, and Jesus is the truth. And it’s hard for any individual to admit that they are in error in any way, because of our pride and our arrogance, you know, Frank Sinatra, ‘I Did It My Way’ kind of attitude. And so I would rather be dogmatic going the wrong way than humble myself and submit to the truth. But thank God, my mother was even more dogmatic to the truth.
SID: She was tenacious. I’ll tell you everyone needs a mother like Isaiah had. So he finds himself at a Christmas party, it was a long Christmas party, and this was what, about three years later?
SID: And something highly unusual occurs. Don’t go away, we’ll be right back.
SID: Hello, Sid Roth, your investigative reporter here with Isaiah Reed. Isaiah, according to my notes, a newspaper said you were the most vicious pimp in Hawaii.
ISAIAH: that’s true.
SID: How – you don’t look that way now.
ISAIAH: Thank you Jesus.
SID: For sure. I want to take you back; you were raised with a Godly mother.
ISAIAH: Yes Sir.
SID: But you kind of liked using violence, even as a youngster, and fighting, and gangs.
ISAIAH: Well, it was contrary to the lifestyle that I was brought up into and really it was a challenge to me to make a decision. I was kind of in a fork of the road in my life; we didn’t practice, we practiced non-violence in our home. My father preached, and my mother preached still.
SID: How many generations of ministers were in your family?
ISAIAH: Five, five generations of preachers. And it was prophesized when my mother was 17 years old that I would minister the gospel. Of course nobody asked me if that was going to be my choice but growing up in that environment and kind of being indoctrinated into that kind of Christian lifestyle, I even went to Catholic school and attended a Baptist church. So the community that I was aware of, not only in my family, but the community that I was aware of as a child concerning my boundaries was all in a religious format. I didn’t know any other environment or lifestyle or culture at that particular time. But the long and short of it is, my sister was being bullied at a school and I asked the bully to leave her alone, and he wanted to beat me so I ran. You know, I ran for my life and he began to chase me, because I was fearful, I never had been in a physical altercation.
ISAIAH: And I was about maybe twelve or so, and you know how young people are if they see you run you’re going to get beat up, everybody wants to watch, so a crowd kind of was running after me, instigating and so on and so forth. Anyway I made it home but I had a cousin there who says no, you know, we don’t run from nobody, you need to you know stand up and be a man and that kind of thing you know that macho thing and I was very afraid, very afraid. And I was more afraid of my older cousin than of the bully that was chasing me so I kind of stood my ground, and I just lunged at him really, and closed my eyes, and I guess out of the fear and out of terror I just grabbed a hold of him as tight as I could and I was strangling him. We ended up on the ground, but I was holding on, basically so he couldn’t get up and hurt me, but I had overpowered him and strangled him and he was you know crying out “uncle” let me go you know, enough, it’s enough already. And they pulled me off but what took place, it changed me inside, with the accolades. Everybody was happy, everybody was proud of me, and I had never experienced that before where all the attention and all the praise came upon me for something that I had done, and that was the pride of life. And so when the pride of life came on me I had an appetite for it. And I’m not saying that my parents never praised me, or never encouraged me…
SID: No, no, I understand. But let me ask you Isaiah; then you went in the military. Did you get straightened out?
ISAIAH: Well, the military came from being involved in crime. I was doing drive by shootings, because I had an appetite for it so I got involved in gangs. And during that time, during the Vietnam era, they were taking you know incorrigibles, gang members, and that sort and giving us a choice, either go to prison or go to war.
SID: Oh, I see, you went in reluctantly.
ISAIAH: Yeah. And since I was under age, my father said send him somewhere as long as he don’t come back home, because I had just become just too unbearable for my family. I mean by that time I had two young ladies and I’m living with my parents, pregnant, you know out of wedlock, that kind of thing, drive by shoots, already dabbling in narcotics, selling drugs.
SID: Your parents must have gone through a lot of grief with you.
ISAIAH: Oh yeah, a lot of grief. But one thing my parents did do, they stood on the promises of God.
SID: Yeah, I talked to your mother. She would really get in your face and say, my son is not a pimp, he’s a preacher.
ISAIAH: Oh yeah, often and much, much as she could. And I really thank her, and thank God for that tenacity and that tenaciousness. And I think every parent, whatever your family situation, whether you’re a parent, whether you’re a spouse, whether you’re a sibling, if you are the only one that has a promise or has something strong inside of you, a strong faith that you can stand on, on the confidence that is found in the word of God, then you need to stand, because what it looks like is not what it is. And that’s what mother- and the more she stood and the more she believed the worse I got. It seemed like the situation wouldn’t change, but it would grow. I mean the military, you know I could put on a uniform, I could be a chameleon so to speak, I could do the military thing. Of course violence, during that time was what they were promoting to defend this nation, but I liked the violence on a more personal level as far as promoting my own, being more intimidating, you know learning how to shoot, learning how to operate in weapons, learning hand to hand combat.
SID: So that actually enhanced your desire. At the top of your career as a pimp, how much money were you making?
ISAIAH: Oh, I think if I was to just average it out, 27 million.
SID: What does someone do with 27 million dollars?
ISAIAH: Well, there’s maintenance in that kind of lifestyle.
SID: You’re talking about a year.
ISAIAH: Yeah. If you have a high
SID: Did you hear that? 27 million dollars a year! I mean it would take a genius to figure out I think how to spend it. But give me a try; I’ll be able to do it, Isaiah. We’ll be right back after this word.
SID: Hello, Sid Roth your investigative reporter here with Bill Prankard and I am, Bill I have to tell you something, I’m just getting to know you. But for an individual that has seen so many miracles by just showing up, how do you, and I don’t mean this in a bad way, I mean this in a probing way, how do you stay humble?
BILL: It’s the most humbling thing I’ve ever been a part of.
SID: I mean people would want to kiss your feet that are healed of incurable cancer. I know this must happen to you. How do you stay humble?
BILL: You would remember C. M. Ward. Years and years ago, this great old preacher from Canada
BILL: He said to me one time, when I’m being announced and they were giving me all these accolades, he said “Remember the woodpecker.” And later he told me this little woodpecker lands on this tree, hits its beak to get some bugs. The moment it does, instant it does, a lightening bolt comes out of the sky, hits the tree, splits it in half, one over here, one over here, and knocks the woodpecker unconscious. Woodpecker wakes up, shakes his head and says “Wow, look what I did!” You know, I remember the woodpecker.
SID: I got you, I got you. That’s a good message for you to have. Bill I want to know, what is God doing in your life, just in the last few years?
BILL: This is the most exciting time we’ve ever had. We’re just beginning to see. God is giving us revival in Canada. And by the way, thank you for your ministry. You broadcast across our nation and you’re touching people, bringing people the supernatural, so we bless you for that. I believe God’s going to give us a nationwide revival. Out of what happened in Pittsburgh in 1972, we’re now establishing this year a healing center in our nations capitol where people can come and be healed, a walk-in healing clinic. It’s taken us literally to the ends of the earth. To Arctic Russia, to the most forgotten and neglected mission field in the world. We’re going right across the top of Russia to nomadic Eskimos and the power of God is hitting. People are being healed out on the tundra where there are reindeer. And they’re like you were when you got touched; they don’t know anything but they just make sense. If there is a God and he loves them then… I said to this one family “He wants to heal you” and this old guy limps up. They have no medicine, they have no support. He says basically “Ok. How?” I said “Well we normally just put our hands on you and you get healed.” And he smiles and says “Ok.” And you saw this man, I mean hundreds of miles away from anything that would remotely look like civilization, totally healed by the power of God.
SID: You know, if you were to go into someone’s living room or wherever they’re watching right now and pray for them and perhaps tell them to put their hand, as you said you did where they’re believing God for a miracle. And if they’ve got too many problems, like most people do, just to go like this. Would you do that?
BILL: I would love to. You know, this is a wonderful thing about what we’re talking about. You don’t have to be in a meeting, you don’t have to have an evangelist come in contact with you. He is right there with you. The One who came to me in that church in Pittsburgh is right there with you. And why don’t you do that? If you possibly can, why don’t you take your hand and you with that heart condition, put your hand right there on the heart, or the lungs, or the ear, you that have lost the hearing in that one ear, why don’t you put your hands there. It doesn’t matter what the doctors have said. You see, when anybody tells you things are hopeless or impossible, they’re wrong. They forgot about Jesus. I believe there’s a nail-scarred hand on top or your hand right now. And in Jesus’ name we just declare a wave of healing coming through that television. Just start to receive right now. This is your time of receiving from head to toe right now. That rheumatoid arthritis; in Jesus’ name start moving, start moving those joints and muscles.
God’s healing you. That pinched nerve in the lower part of the spine causing problems down that leg, stand up in Jesus’ name. God’s healing you. And there’s someone right now, you’re watching and this is a divine appointment; you had to watch, you weren’t planning on watching this. You don’t know me, you don’t know SID, but the doctors are talking to you about replacing the knee. Surgery on the knee; in Jesus’ name I speak healing in that knee right now. All pain go, all limitation go. Stand up and start moving it. There’s healing flowing right now and someone with a skin condition, you can literally watch your skin change because God’s healing you. It’s got nothing to do with me but Jesus is there healing you. There is a release of miracles right now, and I speak to you who had that stroke and you’ve just said “Well I guess this is it.” But you’ve heard that there’s hope today. You see, and that’s what I want to do. I want to build your hope up because faith is the substance of things hoped for. And all of a sudden you’ve started to feel a flicker of something saying “Maybe, yes maybe.” And in Jesus’ name by faith I lay hands on you and I claim every symptom of that stroke to go. I speak restoration
right now. And Sid, there’s a mother watching. You’ve had a broken heart because of your daughter. Jesus wants to heal your broken heart. He wants to give you joy that has nothing to do with anything around you. Just receive Him right now would you? Father, thank you for healing. Whatever your situation is, whether I mentioned it or not, whether you felt anything or not, I claim healing for you. Start checking it. Start checking it. And please, the moment you know anything’s happening, get in touch with Sid and this ministry. Would you do that? Because you know, when God starts something, He intends to finish it. And people need to praise Him.
SID: Bill, we are going to have, you know we’ve started this new thing where you send in a home video of your miracle and we’ll put it right on the air. Because I agree with
BILL: there are going to be miracles happening all over the place. And it’s not going to be about people ministering like Bill Prankard or Benny Hinn. It’s going to be average people with an extraordinary God and an extraordinary relationship with the Holy Spirit. You know, God is telling me someone’s hip has just been healed. And do exactly what Bill said: you stand up and start walking. Also there is someone’s back, spine. It just went “snap.” That’s you. You are healed. Test it. Just bend over, you’ll see that. But you know there’s a greater miracle than that and I know it because I experienced it. A greater miracle than anything that Bill Prankard talked about. I know it because I experienced it. I know what my life would be like if I had not… I used to say I found God 30 years ago. No no no, it was just like Bill Prankard. When that healing gift came he wasn’t looking for it, he didn’t know anything about it. I didn’t know anything. All I knew was my life was a mess. I knew that. I knew that I walked away from a wonderful job, I walked away from a wonderful wife, I walked away from a wonderful daughter; and I got involved in the new age and I almost lost my mind and I lost in every possible arena of life. I was a loser, loser, loser. And then, the worst day of my life: some Christians told me that if I would pray to God; because of my Jewish background I was a little resistant but you know what? When you come to your senses, and you don’t have to go through all the hell I went through to come to your senses. Just come to your senses. When I came to my senses I didn’t know about this Jesus. I just know they said He was stronger than what was happening to me and I had a two word prayer. It was that simple. I mean some
Bible school graduate might take issue with it but I said “Jesus help!” I was by myself and I tell you, I went to sleep. And the next morning I was a different person. I had a peace inside of me. God restored my marriage, my mind, my job, everything. You don’t understand this Jesus. You don’t understand. How could the Son of God die on a cross and rise from the dead and pay the price for your sins? Well you don’t have to understand it all, you just have to understand that there’s something more to life than you’re experiencing. That’s what you have to understand. And you have to reach out for the Creator. The fool says in his heart “There is no God.” You know there’s a Creator. Reach out to God and say “Jesus, become real in my life.” “Jesus, I’m sorry for my sins. Jesus, I believe your blood washes away my sins.” “Come inside of me. Holy Spirit, I want to get to know you.” And then celebrate, because I tell you God isn’t a respecter of persons. What He did for me, He’s going to do for you because He loves you. And if you’ve never heard this before, I tell you God is love. And God’s love is pouring into you right now. I know it. That’s what you’re experiencing. And some aren’t feeling something, some are. It’s God.
SID: Hello, Sid Roth your investigative reporter here with Bill Prankard and we’re hearing about a very notable miracle. This man had a withered leg and before Bill Prankard’s very eyes that little scrawny, withered leg became normal. What does that do to you when you see that? Even though you’ve seen millions of miracles now, what does it do to you?
BILL: You never get used to seeing God touch people. You never get used to it. It’s always like the first time. I mean it’s so exciting.
SID: Well what about the rest of his health? I mean did he get totally healed? He had all those strokes.
BILL: He felt great. He called home that night. It was the middle of the night still in Northern Ireland, gets his wife out of bed, “Betty I’ve been healed!” “Oh really, George? What do you mean healed?” Because George had had touches before, people had prayed for him but he felt no change. Anyway, the long and short of it, he went back to the doctor, the doctor did every test, every blood test and said “George, this is a miracle of God.” That’s what the doctor said. He said “There is no other explanation.” “Not only are you totally restored, you have no physical problems.” It was so significant the newspaper, the secular newspaper, the front page, three-quarters of the front page, a picture about this miracle man.
SID: Bill, I must ask you this question. I know that you reluctantly went to a friend of mine’s meeting, thirty-plus years ago, on a bus from Canada to Pittsburgh. You did not want to go. Her name was Kathryn Kuhlman.
BILL: Yes, I remember her.
SID: You’re sitting there you’re amazed at the miracles. You know about the Spirit of God, you know The Lord, but all of a sudden something happened to you at that meeting that never happened before. What was it?
BILL: Sid, I was an ordained Assembly of God preacher. In Canada we’re called Pentecostal Assemblies of Canada. And I thought I knew it all. I thought I had it all. But all my life I felt if God is God, He should be touching people, we should be seeing miracles, and I didn’t see it. I’d preach on healing and nobody would get healed. Preach on people coming to Jesus, nobody would come to Jesus. In that meeting I saw everything I thought should be happening. The problem was I’d been warned about her. I had an attitude about her. And I thought, really honestly I thought “What could this lady possibly have to give to me? I’m a Pentecostal minister.” Catholic lady sitting beside me; who I’m supposed to be helping because I know all about it. When people started falling under the power she grabbed my arm and said “What’s she doing to them?” And I said “Oh, it’s the power of God, it’s ok.” And she got excited and got her healing. If I could have been honest, I would’ve grabbed the Catholic lady’s arm and said “What’s she doing to them?” I’d never seen this. I was being overwhelmed by
God’s presence and power. I’d never felt this before. When I said that Sid, all I can tell you is He came. I had an encounter with the third Person of the Trinity that I never knew was possible. Up until that time I thought He was a force, power, experience, even though my doctor had said He was a Person. He came. I felt His fingers saying “Yes, this is My power and you’ve never seen it.” “You’ve had a form of godliness and you’ve denied My power.” That moment I made up my mind, through tears, I will never deny
Your power again and I’ll spend the rest of my life, not pursuing healing ministry as I was, pursuing You. Everything I’ve seen in 33 years has come out of pursuit of a relationship with the Holy Spirit. Because Jesus said “You can know Him.” And I want to know Him today more than I’ve wanted to know Him 33 years ago.
SID: Now here’s the thing that is so amazing to me: Bill Prankard wasn’t fasting, he wasn’t praying, he went reluctantly, and the presence of God fell on him to the point, on the bus ride back, there wasn’t one person from that entire bus from Canada that was ill. And they were kind of disappointed. And the bus driver says to him “Huh. What about your God? Look at that young crippled girl.” And what did God do for that young crippled girl?
BILL: You know how did I start the ministry? I put my seat back and went to sleep. They woke me up and one after another after another was being healed. A little crippled girl who had never walked, never walked, her doctor said it was impossible for her to walk. A Greek Orthodox mother and daughter came, started running up the aisle. Not only did it change my life but it changed the bus driver’s life.
SID: What happened to him?
BILL: His whole family came to Christ. I got an e-mail from his son last year saying “I just want you to know, what happened on that bus in 1972 is still happening.” “I’m now the head of a Pentecostal denomination in western Canada” “and in every service we pray for the sick.”
SID: Ok. When did it dawn on you? Now it dawned on you something happened on that bus but when did it dawn on you that when you would just have a meeting it would be like popcorn. People would be healed all over the place. When did you first find this out?
BILL: Well you know, that first trip I was in a daze, almost like the healings and all of that was a distraction because I wanted to pursue the Holy Spirit. And I thought “I’m not going to lose focus here, I’m going to pursue you.”
SID: And that little girl, by the way, the reason the bus driver became a believer was she was totally healed right before everyone’s eyes.
BILL: She was totally healed, absolutely.
SID: And everyone knew she was bad off.
BILL: We all knew it, yes, exactly. So we came back to our little church in Canada and that Sunday morning I stood at the edge of the platform, I wouldn’t stand behind the pulpit. I’d been gone way too long. I was always so concerned about my image; I just blubbered through the meeting. I said “You know what, I’ve failed you, I’ve failed God, I’ve had a form of godliness.” So that was the meeting basically, I blubbered through. And people at the end of the service, on the way out, said “Pastor, I was healed this morning.” Sid, I didn’t talk about healing! I didn’t pray for them. These are people I prayed for so many times that I’m sure I had my fingerprints in their forehead. We poured oil upon oil on them.
BILL: Now they sit there, I’m blubbering talking about “I’m giving my life to pursuing the Holy Spirit…”
SID: Wait a second. Why you? Why you?
BILL: Well do you know Kathryn Kuhlman, your friend, said in that service “What’s happening here should be happening everywhere.” I believe it’s for everybody.
SID: You know what? It is going to happen everywhere. That’s music to my ears because I know, as a matter of fact, we have to leave right now and we’ll be right back after this break. But you’re going to see, like popcorn, people being healed. Don’t go away. I know you’ll be back.
SID: Hello, Sid Roth your investigative reporter here with Bill Prankard. And Bill has probably seen more miracles, or as many miracles, as anyone on the face of this earth. And Bill, one notable miracle that you’ve seen that is
SID: I mean there is no such thing as a miracle that is not notable.
SID: But pull one out of the millions that have occurred.
BILL: Ok and I could tell you, I get probably more excited about the little things, thinking that God Almighty cares when I’ve got a sore finger or a sore toe. I mean that’s phenomenal.
SID: You too! Did I ever tell you about my thumb? Let me tell you something. My thumb, when I would bend it, it hurt. And I was in a meeting, like right now. There is a presence of God just in our conversation. You know we’re having fun because we have a wonderful God and we’re excited about him. But I was just minding my own business in a meeting, much like what you’re watching right now, and when I left, my thumb by the way, before that meeting, when I would bend it, it would hurt. But you know what? It’s a little part of my body and if don’t bend it it’s not going to hurt.
BILL: And most people think “I can live with this.”
SID: And you know what? The presence of God was so strong at that meeting that when I left I thought “Oh, I can bend my thumb.”
BILL: It just happens. Miracles just happen. And you know, I really feel people watching, they’re going to have the same experience, that same anointing.
SID: Oh I know it!
BILL: But one of the ones I love, miracles I love, because I was there, I witnessed this thing from beginning to end. We’ve got it all documented on tape. This man named George McMurtry, he was from Northern Ireland, church administrator in a very large church for Northern Ireland and he was doing well. He had a stroke. And then he had another stroke. Then he had another stroke. He ended up having five strokes. The last stroke the doctors said “George, you’re lucky to be alive.” He couldn’t work, couldn’t function, he was bedridden; they had to put a hospital bed in the dining room and make that his bedroom. Now what’s wrong with that picture? Jesus said “I’ve come that you might have life and have it more abundantly.”
SID: And that’s not cliché, it’s truth, it’s truth.
BILL: And he’s not having abundant life.
BILL: Now he had a promise of healing right at the very beginning. Somebody prophesied at the beginning of this “God’s going to heal you.” He hung onto that but it got harder and harder. And even his church leaders, when George would say something like “I really still believe God’s going to heal me.” They told me later “You know, good George, but look at…” Twice he came to church in the midst of all these strokes and collapsed in church; ended up in the hospital with another stroke. It was getting worse. Elam Fellowship in Northern Ireland was sparked by healing revival. That’s where they come from.
SID: I know.
BILL: And they believed it but they weren’t seeing it. We were involved in Toronto Airport doing a healing conference and they caught wind of it and said “You know, we need to go and learn about healing.” One of the pastors was coming, a nurse was coming, some other people, and George said “Can I go?” And they didn’t want him to come. They thought “What if he dies?”
SID: Of course.
BILL: The doctor said “But who’s going?”
SID: That would sure mess up your miracle meeting.
BILL: Well we have one rule in our meetings: nobody’s allowed to die.
SID: Well I’m glad of that.
BILL: If you want to die, go outside. Anyway, he came. The doctor said “If the nurse is going with you, if the pastor’s going with you, why not? But you’re not going to get any better.” He didn’t come expecting to be healed. He came wanting to learn about healing. The first night, it was actually the night before the healing conference started, I was doing the service and a lot of people had come in from all over the world. I don’t know how many people were there but Toronto Airport was nicely filled. And so we have our worship and apparently George is there, three-quarters of the way back, bad mood, doesn’t want to be there, he’s tired, he’s sick. His leg was withered, his left leg was withered, half the size. He had a brace on keeping it straight. It was paralyzed so he’d drag it. His arm was down like this, all withered and gnarled and he had no use of it. So apparently George, he thinks the worship was ok, message was ok. At the end of the message I said “God’s healing people, and if you need healing, stand.”
SID: When you say that, do you know that’s going to happen
BILL: I know.
SID: Or do you do it at every meeting, “God’s healing people?”
BILL: No, no. I do it when He tells me.
SID: You don’t say it until when He tells you.
BILL: So this is… I’ve done this thousands of times. If you need healing in your body, take your hand and put it where you need healing. If you need healing all over your body, take your hand and put it on top of your head. What George says he heard so clearly was “Take your left hand and put it on top of your head.”
SID: Yeah, but it’s paralyzed.
BILL: And he can’t walk without a cane. Without help he can’t balance. But his pastor’s there, one of his pastors, his nurse is there, and he thinks “If I don’t…” So he and I don’t know that I said that. If I said “Left hand” that’s the only time I’ve ever said it. He thinks “Ok.” He’s in a bad mood anyway, not feeling well. He takes this gnarled hand, and he pushes it up with his good arm and just gets it up as far as he can and he’s basically saying “Prankard, hurry, hurry.” I mean he’s not praying the prayer of faith. God gave me a word SID. It was as clear as if I’m sitting here with you. “Someone’s hand is being healed.” The thought went through my mind “That’s not that big of a deal.” But it is if it’s your hand of course.
SID: Of course.
BILL: When I said that, George’s hand fell loose. Now he thought it had just slipped, because it was very uncomfortable and painful. But it didn’t go back. It went out and his hand started moving, an arm that for a few years he hadn’t had use of. Hand started moving. And his pastor beside him said “George, your hand is moving!” And he said “I know it.” And so of course the good pastor said “Get up there and tell him.” Well George starts up the aisle.
SID: With the crutches?
BILL: No, no. That’s the thing. They call him. He’s halfway up or more. It’s a big auditorium; you’ve been there, Toronto. And they call him and they’ve got his canes. He forgot his canes. And he’s halfway up so he thinks “Well I’m not going back to get them.” He’s having difficulty walking because his brace is coming off; the Velcro is coming off that normally held his brace. And so he thinks “Oh great. When I get up to the front I’ll fix it.” When he got up to the front he pulled his pant leg up to fix it. The Velcro was coming loose because his leg was not withered. The doctor had said it was half the size of the other. It was normal.
SID: In that split second! In a split second you can get your miracle too. We’ll be right back after this word.
SID: Hello. Sid Roth here with Michael Hinson What happens to a woman whose husband runs off with a secretary, devastation, coupled with a bad back, so she goes to everyone and everyone that “who’s who” that has a healing ministry, and they pray for her, nothing. So this woman comes to one of your meetings. What happened, Michael?
MICHAEL: Actually, this is one of the first meetings that we ever had, so I had been in the healing ministry for zero amount of time, so everything was new to me, and this woman came, had a severe back, took her a couple of minutes to even get seated in the chair, was in a tremendous amount of pain. Her husband had abandoned her, and this was after multiple affairs and different situations, he just took everything and for three years she was in devastation, a Christian believer who has gone from place to place to place to get healed. So I went to pray for her and in the process of praying for her I heard real clearly that she was hurting here, and so instead of taking time to pray for her back, ministered and led her in forgiveness and in the betrayal and other things, some simple prayers where she released these things, she was saying them so sincerely I was crying, I couldn’t help but cry, I had never seen anybody so open, I was new in the ministry at the time, and I thought you know she looks ten years younger through tears, and she was crying, when I dried my eyes and looked at here, she was ten years younger. She sprung up out of that chair and started jumping up and down, praising God, and God just miraculously touched and healed her when the root cause of this pain was removed from her.
JOAN: The back was never prayed for, just the root cause
MICHAEL: We could have treated the symptom all day long, along with other people, who prayed for the symptom but not the root cause.
SID: Joan why do you have such a passion that the sick be healed?
JOAN: Because I was sick and I’m healed, and I was hurting and I am healed, and my heart was broken and God has restored my heart, my finances were destroyed and God has healed the finances, every area of my like was totally destroyed, I have been healed actually multiple times throughout my life with the doctors giving me no hope. When I was pregnant with my first one, and at this point 29 years ago, they said that we’re going to try to save the baby but there is no hope for her. And I went on to have three more and you know she’s 29 and we’re doing great, and
SID: Is there any such thing as a hopeless physical condition?
JOAN: In Jeremiah, it says, God says, “Is there anything too hard for me?” The answer to that question is no.
SID: Michael, there is a sweet presence of God here right now I want either of you or both of you to pray for the sick as God directs.
MICHAEL: This is real easy, let me do this, this is simple. I know that you are sitting there somewhat skeptical about what’s going on here, I can relate a hundred percent, and others know exactly what’s happening, but I can tell you that there is some here that if you are hurting in your heart, you can feel the pain and you can feel the pressure you are not broken. God made you so that your heart would hurt to let you know there is a problem there, that it needs attention. It’s the simplest of all things; search your heart even now. If there is anyone in your life that would come sit down beside you right now where you are sitting, and would affect the comfort zone while you are in that room, my question to you is why? Why? Is there anybody from your past, if that is the case then you may need to consider releasing them, forgiving them, releasing the debt that they owe you. Unforgiveness is the poison we drink hoping the other person will get sick. All you have to do is release the debt.’ Jesus told the people that we are like the tax collectors, the tax collectors used to sit outside the city gate and they would collect the taxes, the debt that was owed before the people could go into the temple and worship, before they cold go in the market place and trade, they had to pay the debt that was due before they could get past that wall. Jesus said cancel the debt that these people owe you; open the wall back up to your heart. I know the fears that you are feeling that you will be hurt again, things will change, it’s not working for you now. Open your heart back up it’s how God originally made you and when you do you will see the life and the fullness and the joy that you have not been experiencing ever since you let that wall go up. So let me just lead you in a simple prayer and just repeat this, Father in the name of Jesus I release, (name the name of the person). What they did to me was sin; take the sin from them and put it on the cross of Jesus Christ. Father, forgive them and release them of this sin and on the day of judgment I will hold no accusation against them. They will be free of this sin. Father, bless them even now. For those who are doing that you are going to feel a lightness in your heart, you are going to feel life come back into your body, physically many changes will take place in you, even now.
SID: Would you pray Joan?
SID: Yes, and many of these prayers that we have talked about today are in this book.
SID: I’ve noticed where you ministered to me, you were just following the book.
SID: So anyone could do that.
JOAN: We wrote the book following us actually, but what happens is, it’s subtitled ‘Effective prayers for the body, soul and spirit,’ and we teach people the unforgiveness prayer and how to be released and you know, the word curses and generational curses and so forth, all of those are in here.
MICHAEL: Ungodly covenants and it goes on and on and on of very simple things the Bible talks about that we can make changes in, and when we do we literally change. See we believe that all sickness has a spiritual root to it, and that when you correct the things in the spirit that everything else lines up, but it’s all tied together. Your marriage changes, your finance changes, your whole life changes and the joy that Jesus talks about just floods your soul and you start to have that life abundant. It’s not something that you have to go run down or hunt down, it is right here, it sis so easy to get it back. That’s the part we get, people, people, we get email after email and letter after letter I didn’t believe you, you said it was so easy, and they call us back, it is so easy.
JOAN: It is.
MICHAEL: So much so that these people are taking this and now they are going into the market place and into the churches and they are praying for other people and seeing them healed just like we are.
SID: I noticed that they’re buying multiple ones of these, pray for the people Joan.
JOAN: I’m going to pray for the heart because there is so much heartache in America and all around the world. We’ve seen it as we have literally the world this year. Father, right now I the name of Jesus, touch their hearts, make their heart whole again. Father, as mine was just run through a meat grinder and you just picked it up and just, you know, symbolically you put it back into my heart and into my chest so I could love again and be whole. Father, right now in the name of Jesus, restore their hearts, restore their life; give them joy. In Jesus name Father, lift that depression from them, lift the oppression from them. Father, give them hope, hope in Jesus name.
SID: While Joan was praying God spoke to me, actually it was a little before Joan was praying, that there are people watching right now that know about God but do not know Him, believe in God but have not taken that next step to know Him, it’s not religion that I’m talking about, it’s not tradition, it’s for you, it’s for you, it’s for me, it’s for Michael, it’s for Joan. God’s got enough; I mean you have tried everything this world has to offer and there is nothing there. It’s bankrupt. Now’s your chance, now is your invitation. I’m not saying tomorrow you won’t have one, but this is all you have this moment. You don’t know whether that last breath was your last breath or not. This is your moment, repent of your sins, it’s no big word. Tell God, because you’ve offended Him, that’s who you have offended according to His word; you have offended God, that’s what David said, “Against me, against me,” God says “You’ve offended, you’ve hurt me, God’s too good to hurt, tell Him you’re sorry and ask Him for the power to turn from your sins, you can’t do it by yourself, but ask Him in Jesus name, believe that your sins are totally washed away, and then ask Him to live inside of you. See I heard about you, because God knows your name. I say your ears are open now in Jesus name, ears open in Jesus name. You don’t have to be religious. I had a two-word prayer, “Jesus, help!”, and He showed up! It’s the heart He’s looking for; you broke it, now you can either cause that brokenness to cause meaning to come into your life or just keep feeling bad for yourself. Choose this day whom you shall serve, but as for me and my house, we’re serving the Lord.
