SID: Hello. Sid Roth here. Welcome to my world where it’s naturally supernatural. My guest heard the audible voice of God and this is what God told him: “Teach my people how to operate in the supernatural.” And he has done this all over the world. But the last time I picked up the phone and I spoke with him there was an increase, I mean a tangible increase in the presence of God. And I said, “What is going on with you? Why has the presence of God just so dramatically increased?” And he said, “I’ve been teaching a revelation that very few of God’s people understand that will catapult you into doing the same things and even greater than what Jesus did.” Do you want to hear that? Now most people that have been taught of what the Bible says about Jesus’ death understand the cross and they must understand the cross. Why? Because your sins were atoned for. But my guest has been emphasizing a different aspect and he’s been seeing so many miracles happen. For instance, Apostle Maldonado, your wife heard the teaching, the revelation you received, and prayed for a woman that had her breast removed. Tell me about that.
APOSTLE MALDONADO: This woman came to one of her conferences in Argentina and actually, my wife was coming out of the meeting. She was in a hurry and this woman, one of her breasts had been removed because of cancer. So my wife said, “Be healed in Jesus name” and left. And the woman said, “Well, I need a longer prayer.”
SID: Where’s the religious…?
APOSTLE MALDONADO: As a matter of fact, she got mad. She got mad. She went home. Her husband was praying and saying, “God, I want my wife to have a new breast.” And one time she got up, and she was changing her bra, and suddenly her husband saw it first. And her husband said, “Watch! You got a new breast!” So the Lord grew back her breast.
SID: Listen, when you get this revelation, what Jesus said is going to be true in your life when you capture this revelation, there will be nothing impossible for you. Tell me the revelation that God explained to you.
APOSTLE MALDONADO: This is what it is. The majority of the church has gone into the cross. The cross is where we receive forgiveness of sin. Now that’s what the church is now, the majority of the church. Now they have not made the transition from the cross to the resurrection. And the resurrection, the cross is where you receive forgiveness of sin. The resurrection is where you enter into power. The cross is a historical fact. The cross is a historical fact. The resurrection must be revealed in the now. The cross—
SID: The Gospel is not in word only, but in power. And he’s giving you the revelation for the power.
APOSTLE MALDONADO: The cross is the demonstration of love. The resurrection is the demonstration of his power. So we must go into demonstration of his power. So that explains why the church doesn’t have power, because we got beautiful Christians. They love God. They have received forgiveness of sin. But what is the power if we talk about a risen Christ, we’re taking about risen Christ, it takes the Holy Spirit to reveal that historical fact. It is a fact. Jesus died on the cross. Everybody knows that. Most of the religious understand and they know, oh yeah, Jesus died. They know that. But getting into the power we must have the revelation in the now. And that is the Holy Spirit that wants to speak to those people that are watching right now. If you want to get into demonstration of the power of the resurrection, everything will come alive. Your dreams will come alive. Your vision will come alive. Your marriage will come alive. Everything what you do. In other words, the power of the resurrection is not only words, is not only something well for the physical body. Even though we see miracles, creative miracles where there’s no organs, God will create one, but it’s beyond that. It can be your marriage. It can be your business. Something will come alive when you get into that revelation. And what do I need? You need to be hungry. You need to be thirsty. God’s power is here now and it can be demonstrated for any believer that believes.
SID: Now why is the supernatural so important?
APOSTLE MALDONADO: The supernatural is so important because there is impossible things that will come into our life.
SID: Especially the age we’re living in now.
APOSTLE MALDONADO: Right. You know, one of these days I was praying and the Lord said, “I want you to tell the church to pray for national miracles.” And I said, “God, why?” And He said, “The national crisis that is coming upon this nation will take national miracles.” And supernatural in America we got many options. And when you got many options, you don’t commit to anything to believe anything because you got different options. The supernatural is so important because there are so many things, impossible circumstances of men that will never overcome it. You will never overcome it by natural means. You need supernatural means. Second, the Bible says when you bring the Kingdom, the people of Israel was established in the land by supernatural means, every miracle. It took miracles to stay in the land. If you want to advance the Kingdom, if you want to expand the Kingdom, if you want to do something for God, we need to establish by supernatural means.
SID: What has the church substituted for the supernatural?
APOSTLE MALDONADO: There is substitution. Entertainment substituted worship, charisma substituting the anointing. And I can give you a list. Faith has been supplanted by reason. Today we don’t do anything unless we have understanding. If you go to the scripture, every act of miracle of God, it cannot be explained. That’s what supernatural means, something that cannot be explained. It is beyond your head. It is beyond your reason. If you want to receive your miracle now you need to disconnect your head. And your reason has its place. I’m not saying you’re stupid, that we have to be stupid. That’s not what I’m saying. But you can’t get into the supernatural, you cannot move in the supernatural by the reason.
SID: Okay. I am going to turn Apostle Maldonado loose to teach you the revelation of the resurrection. Do you want that?
SID: There is such an explosion in this place and in your home of the miraculous. I don’t know what’s wrong with the muzzle. But there’s a muzzle about right here that is something is wrong with it, it’s being healed right now. Here’s a truth that Dr. Derrick Prince, who now is in Heaven, taught me. And once you understand this, you understand a lot of the Bible and lot of current events. God Himself will judge Israel for sin. But God uses Israel to judge the nations for sin. “He that touches Israel,” the Living Bible says in Zachariah, “is the same as someone that pokes their finger in God’s eye.” No, don’t be stupid, nations. God says, in Genesis 12:3, same thing I just said, “I, God, will bless those who bless the Jewish people. I, God, will curse those who curse the Jewish people.” It couldn’t have been plainer. Yes it is. Obadiah 1:15 is even plainer. Listen to this. “As you have done to Israel, so it will be done to you.” But Sid, that’s Old Testament. Ha! It’s the only Bible the first church had. Give me a break. They did pretty good. They got you here. They got you here, you know. So I’m going to give you a New Testament reference. That was to set you up for this. Matthew 25:40, “And the King will answer and say to them, ‘Assuredly I say to you, in as much as you did it to one of the least of these my brethren,'” this is Jesus speaking, “As you have done unto one of the least of these my brethren.” I looked the word up in the Greek. “Brethren”, it means “from the womb,” the Jewish people. “As you’ve done unto one of the least of the Jewish people, you did it to me.” Let’s get this straight. We’re about ready to see the devil’s worst nightmare. You want to see that? I do. I want to see it. Ephesians, Chapter 2, Verse 14 and 15, “For he himself is our peace who has made both,” that’s Jew and Gentile, “both one and has broken down the middle wall of separation so as to create in himself one new man from the two, thus making peace.” I told you “peace” is shalom, thus making completeness. As if to say, without the Jew and gentle together to make completeness there’s an incompleteness. As if to say, the Jewish person that believes in the Messiah is incomplete without the Gentile person that believes in the Messiah. And when the two come together as one new man, one new humanity. This is what Paul says, he is beside himself in that same second chapter of Ephesians, the 18th Verse, “In whom you are built together into a habitation of God by the spirit.” In other words, a full habitation. Maybe this is what the Messiah meant when he said, “When this one new man occurs,” he didn’t use that terminology, but he said, “Time is occurring that you will do the same works that I have done and even greater.” And even greater. When that one new man comes together it will be the devil’s worst nightmare. Jesus said it this way. I love it. You’ve never heard it this way, but this is the way the Messiah says it. John, Chapter 17, Verse 21 and 22, he’s praying and he says, “I pray that they…” Who’s they? There were only two people groups there at that time, Jews and Gentiles. “I pray,” oh you said Baptist? No, they didn’t exist. I’m sorry, ma’am. My goodness. “I pray that they,” Jew and Gentile, “might be one so the world may believe.” So what is at stake on the one new man? So the world will believe. You’re beginning to understand what the devil understands, that the church is just beginning to have the light bulbs come off. And then it goes in the next verse, he says, by the way, “When that happens, the same glory that is on me will be on them.” You got that? Anyone interested? Anyone interested in the same glory that’s on Jesus to be on you? You see what will happen when these two people groups come together? It gets better. You think it can’t? It gets better. You’re going to get it. Okay. Amos, the 9th Chapter, 11th through the 13th Verse, so misunderstood, it says, “On that day I will raise up the Tabernacle of David.” The word “tabernacle” in the Hebrew means “the house” or “the family” of David. “On that day I will raise up the family of David and they will become true Jews.” The word “Jew” comes from a Hebrew word that means “a worshipper of the Living God”, not just a worshipper of history, but a virgin birth of reality. “And in that day,” Amos goes on to describe a revival that the world has never, ever seen. He says that, “The farmers will go out for the harvest. There will be a lush harvest and they will not be able to gather all the fruit until the next harvest is already started.” And there’s never been a harvest like that. You will not be able to contain what’s going to happen when the Tabernacle of David, the family of David, the House of David, is restored through a personal intimacy with the Living God. And the highest calling at this moment is a Gentile Christian, and they do not even know their high calling. Romans 11:11 says, “Salvation has come to the Gentile to provoke the Jew to jealousy.” So you know how you’re going to do it? You get mentored in the supernatural. You do the same works as Jesus and even greater. Did you see what just happened in this studio? Only God knows what happened in the homes throughout the world. So many of you were healed instantly. The End Time book to the church, my favorite book in the Bible. No ma’am, it’s not Revelation. Esther, Hagasa. Let me tell you about Esther. She is a type of the End Time church. Esther was an orphan. Esther or the Church was young and beautiful. Esther was a virgin. I’m going to tell you something, Esther Church, you can have been the biggest streetwalker, prostitute in town. But when Jesus cleansed you he made you a virgin. I want you to know Esther had favor. Esther hid the fact that if you are the Messiah, you are the same as Abraham. See, she hid her Jewish roots. Esther soaked in oil and myrrh for a year to smell nice for the king. Esther equipped the Jewish people with the sword, the word of the Living God. Esther, when she reached out to spare the Jewish people, opened up the door for the greatest Gentile revival in history. That’s why Paul said, “To the Jew first opens a great door to evangelize the Gentile.” Go do it!
SID: A number of people don’t realize this, but the Torah is clear. And it says there are judgments for sin. And we Jewish people have been under a judgment by God according to Torah, and this is the judgment by God according to Torah. It tells us the judgment has come, why, what will happen and when it will end. And guess what? You’re going to find when it’s going to end. The first judgment is we would lose our land, the land of Israel. Second judgment was we would be scattered to the four corners of the earth. We were. The third judgment was we would be persecuted in whatever country we went to. And the fourth judgment, and this is a judgment, was we would have spiritual blindness. In fact, in Isaiah, Chapter 6, Verse 10, it says, “Harden the hearts of these people. Plug their ears and shut their eyes. That way they will not see with their eyes nor hear with their ears. They’ll understand with their hearts and turn to me for healing.” But I have good news. Oh, do I have good news. The judgment is over. The judgment is over! The key is found in a phrase that’s so important for non-Jewish believers in Jesus to understand, the phrase, “the fullness of the Gentiles”. It’s mentioned two places in the New Testament. First, Luke, Chapter 21, Verse 24, it says, “This is how you’ll know the fullness of the Gentile has come and the curse has ended. And they,” that’s the Jewish people, “will fall by the edge of the sword, be led away captive into all nations and Jerusalem will be trampled by the Gentiles until the fullness of the Gentiles be come in.” 1967, Jerusalem in Jewish possession, the first sign that we are the fullness of the Gentile age. Then Romans 11:25, “For I do not desire, brethren, that you should be ignorant of this mystery.” Look, we can’t be ignorant. God’s children cannot be ignorant of mysteries. I mean, look around. He’s getting ready to return. “Lest you should be wise in your own opinion that blindness in part has happened to Israel until,” when’s that curse going to be removed, “the fullness of the Gentiles.” I can tell you that wherever I go and hold meetings for Jewish people in the United States, I’ve been in Russia for, you know, a decade or so, almost two decades, and most Jewish people are very open to the Gospel in Russia, and that’s why I’ve been there. But now with the fullness of the Gentile age, I go to, if you parachute me in any city in the United States, several hundred Jewish people will come to my lecture on the supernatural, and anywhere from 70 percent to 99 percent will boldly stand up and proclaim Jesus is the Messiah. You see, why is that? Because the Jews require a sign. And when they see miracles, when I see miracles that shouts, God is in the room. And when God is in the room, anything is possible. Romans 11:15 says, “But if their,” it’s talking about the Jewish people. “If their being cast away is the reconciling of the world, what will their acceptance be but life from the dead?” I’m going to tell you what that means to me. There is coming, and I’m going to talk about it when I come back, there is coming what Paul is beside himself and he calls it the one new man. Actually, in the Greek it says, “the one new humanity”. This one new humanity is coming, which is going to be such an explosion of the, someone was just healed. Someone was just healed. I can tell you that right now, someone that had a pain in their back and a pain. Another person had a pain in their neck. If you’ll test your back at home and right here, if you have a backache you stand up and you bend over right now if you have a backache or if you want to keep it, sit down. Whatever you want. If you have a neck ache, move your head. Now come on. Look, we’re mishpucha. We’re family. Come on. Test your back. Test your neck. Okay. Look, I won’t tell you what else God is doing if you’re not going to do this. Some of you have arthritis in your fingers and pain in your fingers. Watch what happens, wrists, carpal tunnel. Hey, hey, hey, take it. It’s yours. It’s yours right now. Just grab it. All right. If you had a pain in your body and the pain is gone now, would you raise your hand so I can see it. Hi. Look at it. Turn around some of you. Look! You should see what’s going on in people’s homes right now. This is what happens in my Jewish meetings. I am going to teach you about the emergence of the one new man and how it’s going to change history forever.
SID: Hello. Sid Roth here. Welcome to my world where it’s naturally supernatural. I have a question for you. Why throughout every generation is the Jew persecuted wherever we go, wherever we live? Now I can understand why that occurred before the Messiah of Israel came, because it was from the seed of a Jew that the Messiah would come. But why after? I know why. And I say this to you, you will not understand End Times. You will not understand End Times unless you understand the Jew, Israel and the one new man. And I tell you one more thing, as I share this significant End Time word, healing is going to flow like a river.
Is there a supernatural dimension, a world beyond the one we know? Is there life after death? Do angels exist? Can our dreams contain messages from Heaven? Can we tap into ancient secrets of the supernatural? Are healing miracles real? Sid Roth has spent over 35 years researching the strange world of the supernatural. Join Sid for this edition of It’s Supernatural.
SID: You know, there is this ancient hatred for the Jew that very few people including us Jewish people don’t understand. But there are reasons. The genesis of it begins in The Book of Genesis, Chapter 3, Verse 15. God is speaking, “And I will put enmity,” that’s hatred, “between you and the woman and between your seed and her seed. He will bruise your head.” Who is he? The Messiah is going to crush the head of the devil. Now do you understand the devil does not want his head crushed? But there’s something so much bigger, so much bigger that he’s afraid of, even than that, and you’re about ready to find this out. Let’s find out more about this seed. Isaiah, the 7th Chapter, the 14th Verse, “Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign.” Now in the Hebrew, the word “sign” means a miraculous sign. What will this miraculous sign be? “Behold the virgin shall conceive and bear a son.” That would be a miraculous sign. Now some translations say, “young woman” and not “virgin”. So I’m so glad I have the One New Man Bible because in the study notes it says, at that time, an unmarried woman of marriageable age had to be a virgin. Why? Because according to Torah, she’d be stoned if she wasn’t a virgin. It goes on to say that this miracle sign not only will be because a virgin will conceive and bear a child, but this child will have a most unusual name, Emanuel, which means “God is with us”. Now the most significant description of this seed is found in a prophet by the name of Isaiah, who penned this, hearing from God, over 800 years before the Messiah even came to Earth. I have read this for orthodox Jewish people, my own father, and he said, “Stop. You’re reading from the New Testament.” “No, Dad, I am reading from approved Jewish scripture.” Let me read this to you. Isaiah 53:1. This is a Jewish scripture because it’s the One New Man Bible, which uses the Old Testament is the approved Jewish Scriptures. “Who would have believed our report?” In other words, the report of the prophets. “And to whom is the arm of the Lord revealed?” Now we find out the arm of the Lord is Isaiah 59:16 says, “God saw there was no man. Therefore, His own arm brought salvation.” In Hebrew, the word, the root of the Hebrew for “salvation” here is “Yeshua”, Jesus. “For he grew up before him as a tender plant in a root out of dry ground.” That’s the miraculous birth. “He had no form or splendor and when we,” that’s the Jewish people, “see him there will be no beauty that we should even desire him. He will be despised and rejected by men, a man of pains and having known about sickness, disease and is one from whom men hide their face. He was despised. And we Jewish people esteem to not. Surely he has born our sicknesses.” The word “born” in the Hebrew, “nasa” is when the high priest put his hand on the scapegoat of all the sins of Israel and that they would then be on the scapegoat and lead that scapegoat to a place never to be seen again. Same word is there. “Surely he has born nasa,” or sicknesses or pains. “He carried them. We have seen them stricken of God and afflicted. But he was wounded because of our transgressions, bruised because of our inequities. The chastisement,” or the punishment, “of our peace. The word “peace” is shalom, which means completeness. In other words, “He was upon him and we have been healed by his wounds. We’ve been made complete. All we like sheep have gone astray. We’ve turned each one to his own way and the Lord has caused the inequity of us all to fall on him.” It just can’t get any clearer. So the question is, why doesn’t every Jew in the world know that Jesus is the Messiah of Israel? I’m going to tell you three reasons. One, the scriptures say we have spiritual scales on our eyes. Two, we have been taught that you can’t be Jewish and believe in Jesus. It’s a lie. If Jesus isn’t the Jewish Messiah, I don’t think you could be a good Jew and not believe in Jesus. And three, we’ve been taught by the rabbis there will be peace on Earth when Messiah comes. That’s in Torah. That is true. But that same Torah is Isaiah 53, which says, “He’ll die for our sins.” So how about, rather than about the ancient rabbis said, two messiahs, that’s what ancient rabbis said, what about one Messiah, two appearances. Now there’s a mystery. It’s called the “fullness of the Gentiles” and very Gentile believers in the Messiah understand this mystery. But I tell you we’re right there now and I’m going to explain it to you.
Sid: I have to tell you I am so red hot for the Messiah. Let me tell you what happened to me at lunch. I befriended a 97 year old Jewish man that doesn’t hear too well. So I said “Do you read the newspaper?” And he said “Yes every day.” So I gave him my book but he refused to read it. So I would ask him every once in a while “Have you read the book?” “No, no, no; this time I said “And see if you read my book you would understand more about God,” I said it must louder because he can’t hear. And in fact I think everyone in the restaurant hears me witness to this guy and he says “Well, how do you know I haven’t been reading the book, I have been.” So you know you just never can tell, look his name is Abe and I don’t how much more time he has, he’s 97 and he’s on his own. I want you to agree with me right now that Abe will have a visitation of Messiah Jesus in Jesus Name, that he will know you before he leaves this earth. Amen. My guest Mike Shreve and talk about faith; when you understand what he understands some of those impossible situations you children and your grandchildren, and some of you even your great grandchildren they’re going to change. Why are they going to change? Because God has 65 promises Mike Shreve has researched and teaches upon and as you speak these promises you’re not pleading with God but you’re absolutely affirming His word. Mike God prepared you for this because first the doctor’s said you could not have a child. You contended with the prophetic word you’ve heard, scriptures and a miracle happened you had a child. But then they said “Oh your first born, your son, is going to be mentally impaired and you said “Absolutely not.” As a matter of fact besides God saying that you were going to have a child did He say anything else to you at that time?
Mike: He told me I was to marry my wife that we would have a son; the word for some reason God used was that he would be an attractive son. And…
Sid: See attractive today is, if you weren’t listening yesterday a miracle occurred and he not only is smart he has a college degree but he has a photographic memory. Would you say he’s attractive?
Mike: Well, yes he is and he’s a miracle. My daughter’s a miracle too.
Sid: Tell me about your daughter because you ran into a serious problem with her. You know how to contend with the promises of God against the devil, but you’ve gone beyond contention you have gone absolute supernatural belief. Tell me about your daughter.
Mike: It was definitely a spiritual warfare over her, my wife was about four months pregnant, four or five months pregnant when we went to the doctor and he came in with a very sad look on his face and troubled look on his face. He said “Your daughter has Spinal Bifida” and because of certain chemical things going on in my wife’s body he said “She’s got cretinism which is a severe form of retardation.” After he showed us the dark spot on her spine to prove that she had Spinal Bifida on ultra sound he leaned across his desk and said “There is an alternative,” and we knew what he meant, he was implying that we should go the right of abortion which was absolutely unthinkable to us. But I tell people that we’ve taken an alternative we made up our minds right then and there never to go back to him again.
Mike: And as we left his office Sid, this is the powerful thing, the Holy Spirit fell on my wife and she heard the audible voice of God she sensed a little child dancing before her and she heard the audible voice of God “Your daughter will dance on the streets of Jerusalem.” And we just heard that she wouldn’t even walk but God said “She’ll dance.” And so from that day forward every day we kept claim and confess that promise over her womb, and she would confess Psalm 138:8 very adamantly that verse says “The Lord will perfect that which concerns me.” And she would say “Baby, daughter you concern me,” and so God said “You’re perfect, I declare that you’re perfect and we decree that you’re perfect.” Four months later when she was born the first thing this new attending doctor said was “She’s perfect.” The very word that we had spoken over her for 4 months, and she is.
Sid: But what about this dancing business? Does she dance, tell me about what happened.
Mike: From a very early age she showed this talent and this proclivity towards dance; she would dance for hours in front of the television with these videos where children sing Christian songs and Biblical songs. And then she would dance along with them and it was the most joyous thing for her to do. And then she joined dance groups where most of the members were twice as old as she was and she did just as good as they did; she’s got a very marked talent in that area.
Sid: Well, you’ve seen what God has done with your children and you know you hadn’t been a believer number one you would not have been married to the same woman you’re married to right now. But number two if you were married to her you would not have had two normal children; as a matter of fact if you hadn’t been a believer you probably would have aborted the second child and the first would have been born severe brain damage. You must be one grateful father.
Mike: Oh, I am every day I’m grateful. One primary scriptures we chose to quote over my daughter also is one of the promises; one of the 65 promises God’s given our children specifically is in the Psalm 139 where David said “I am wonderfully made.” And then it goes on to talk about how God created his inward parts before they existed, and that He mapped out his days before hand before he was even born. So we began to claim Psalm where in verse 13 and 14 it says “For You formed my inward parts, you covered me in my mother’s womb. I will praise you for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Marvelous are your works and that my soul knows very well.” And so we would speak over her and we gave her the name Destiny Hope in advance because the doctors said she “Had no destiny or hope.” And so we counteracted that with a prophetic name. We would say “Destiny Hope you are fearfully and wonderfully made and God forming your inward parts and He’s covering your mother’s womb and you will be a marvelous work of God.” And that’s actually what happened. I believe the spoken word will make all the difference. And I know there’s many parents out there that need to hear this revelation; I got an email this week from a woman that I shared this revelation with like 5 years ago. I shared this insight and these promises with her at the time all 3 of her children were heroin addicts, every single one of them or all 3 of them were in jail too at the same time. She was desperate to begin, and she’d been praying in desperation for them for years, but she learned some of these promises and the ones she really began to focus on Isaiah 54:13 the Bible said “All your children shall be taught by the Lord, and great shall be the peace of your children.” And Isaiah 49:25 where God said “I will contend with him who contends with you and I will save your children.” And then Deuteronomy 30:19 where “I call Heaven and earth as witnesses against you I set before you life and death therefore choose life that both you and your offspring may live.” And so she began to say “Choose life, choose the life of God for my own life and for my children and I believe God will contend with the demons that are trying to snare them and that He will save my children; all my children shall be taught by the Lord.” Well, within the last couple of years that she began praying that over her children two of them were delivered from drugs and are saved and serving God. One of them the daughter has prayed and accepted Yeshua as her Messiah Savior and she’s in the process of really being delivered. And so all 3 children got a miracle when she began to confess.
Sid: Mike I have a burden I have seen what’s going on in the school system in America, in the universities; children of Christians, families that go to the universities will be talked out of their faith, they have atheistic professors, homosexuality is taught as a normal lifestyle; they mock God, and the peer pressure overwhelming. In the past it was vital someone understand what you’re teaching, now it’s life or death because there’s such darkness in the school system right now. I mean your book is literally just off the press, I have a copy in my hand “Sixty-Five Promises of God for Your Child.”
Sid: My guest Mick Shreve has got a new book; now you may be familiar with Mike he spent 42 years as a prophetic evangelist, teacher. But the thing that excites me about Mike is his testimony. As a young man conducting Yoga institutes at 4 different universities; he had something like 400 students and someone decides to run an ad in the newspaper about him, and a prayer group sees this ad and decides “We’re going to make our project; we are going to pray this young man into the kingdom.” So he’s hitchhiking one day and a guy picks him up that was a former student that is in the prayer group. He has a supernatural encounter with God, and then the best part of it Mike to me, is you go back to 400 students at the different universities and you tell everyone what God did in your life and then almost all of them receive the Lord. Do I have that story right?
Mike: Yes sir, almost all of them became Christians; in fact just a couple of years ago I got an email from a young woman that was in the first class where I announced my salvation and 2 years later she got saved and then 38 years after that she email me and said “Thank you for your testimony.” (Laughing)
Sid: People can’t even comprehend the value of prayer; I might not be talking to you right now except God knew you were going to receive Him if that group hadn’t bonded together and prayed you into the kingdom. But I’m very excited about your bank new book it’s literally just off the press; “Sixty-Five Promises from God for Your Child.” How in the world did you come up with this book?
Mike: I began searching the world of God for promises for my children because from the beginning Sid we were told my wife and I were told that we would not have children. But when God told me to marry; he also told me we’d have a son. And so from the beginning I had to reject the report of man and claim and confess that the God of Sarah, the God of Rachael, the God of Hannah, the God that opens barren wombs is still God and that He would do the same for my wife. It happened just like God said and so I claimed promises in that particular area; as my children began to grow they were facing different problems in life. And so I decided to search through the word to find if there were any promises that were applicable to our children. And much to my surprise I found 65 promises where God definitely pledges to do certain things for our children if we’re in a covenant relationship. So I was just ecstatic and I began to claim those promises and saw changes.
Sid: I have to ask you a personal question, I know the amazing things that God did with your children; we’ll talk about them in just a little while. How did you develop such faith, it’s beyond faith it’s like you believe God’s word that all you do is say it and you’re affirming out loud what God is saying? How did you get this kind of faith?
Mike: Through all the battles and trials of life; I like what Paul said, he said, “He was fully persuaded that God was able to keep that committed into His hands.” I often wondered what fully persuaded Paul and it must have been all the many, many hundreds of trials that he went through and God came through for him every time one way or the other. And so it that built in him a confidence to fight the good fight of faith and the same things happened with me.
Sid: Well, I believe that the same thing is going to happen to the people listening; now we have people listening now their children don’t love them, their children are into drugs, they’re children are rebellious, they’re children go to church but on the inside they don’t even want to be there they don’t have a heart for God. How sure are you if someone starts praying these 65 promises that they’ll have a change in their children?
Mike: I am absolutely sure that God keeps His promises. Sometimes they don’t come to fulfillment overnight, so I can’t promises immediate results, but I believe it’s far more powerful to confess what God has already promised to do and to come into agreement with God’s word in a spoken word confession than to plead with Him in desperation. Because desperation is partial faith and partial unbelief mixed together and certainly that kind of prayer doesn’t touch the heart of God as much as someone who is declaring, and decreeing that God said it in His word there for it has to come to past.
Sid: Well, let’s go back you told me God spoke to you to marry your wife in an audible voice?
Mike: It was in a dream and I heard an audible voice in the dream. I had made a covenant when I was 20 years old not to date, not to consider marriage until God told me that it was time to marry. He had given me a dream and told me to set that on the backburner of my life and not concern myself with it. I was 39 years old after many years of evangelism in missionary work God told me who to marry and when He spoke to me that I was to marry Elizabeth He also said that we’d have a son. And that became very important to know when the doctors told us that we’d never have children.
Sid: Well, even having a son it wasn’t an easy situation. I can see why God told you you were going to have a son because if you didn’t know how to war on the prophecy God gave you and on the scriptures, you might have just rolled over and played dead when the doctors told you what was going on.
Mike: It would have been very detrimental to my faith. When my son was born, as you know Sid he laid in the birth canal a very long time to the point where the doctors came in with a very glum look on their faces and they said “Your son suffered oxygen deportation the umbilical cord was wrapped three times around his neck as well.” And they said “There’s no way that he can go through that without suffering severe brain damage.” And they said “You just need to prepare yourself that he may be almost a vegetable, he will definitely be severely retarded.” But just a few years ago he entered Lee University in Cleveland, Tennessee; the Church of God University and he was placed in the highest honor society in that school that is available.
Sid: Well, hey hey it’s beyond that I understand your son who was deprived of oxygen the doctors said “He would be a vegetable almost has a near photographic memory.”
Mike: He is he’s amazing and he doesn’t have to even read a book hardly if her hears it he remembers it forever. And God’s been exceptionally good to him, but see when we got that report on the basis of the Rhema word the Living Word that I received from God told me that I would have an attractive son. And I just confessed the Name of Jesus, in the Name of Yeshua his mind would be alert and that he would be very intelligent, that he would not suffer brain damage; God is our healer, He is the Lord our healer and He promised to intervene for us that way. And God honored His word and miraculously He turned the thing around. I think you brought up something very important though Sid a while ago that there are many parents out there who have very difficult strained relationships with their children. And they don’t really know how to pray, they don’t know how to seek God because they’re so desperate inside often just plead with God and beg God on behalf of their children. But I believe it’s so much more powerful to claim like for instance Isaiah 49:25 God said “I will contend with him who contends with you and I will save your children.” That’s as definite as you can get. In fact…
Sid: But let me ask you this question; what about children that are no longer children they’re adults now and parents are estranged from their adult children; would it help praying these promises?
Mike: Absolutely, in fact if they’re grandchildren or great grandchildren or adult children as you mentioned we still by virtue of the relationship in the natural in the physical we have with them we have a right to consecrate them to God. In fact Hannah consecrated Samuel to God before he had any knowledge of it or any willful involvement in it and she was very right in doing so and God accepted that. And I believe God honors a parent who will consecrate that child; in fact in 1st Corinthians 7:14 it talks about how the unbelieving husband is sanctified by the believing wife and the unbelieving wife is sanctified by the believing husband. And then it goes on to promise that therefore your children are holy; they are not unclean. The implication is that both parents are in rebellion with God and living in sin there’s an uncleanness that passes to the child but if just one member of that marriage is serving God in a covenant relationship with God then God says “I accept your children as being holy to the Lord.” Now that simply means that God accepts them in an act of consecration to Him. That they are separated from the world and consecrated to Him and I believe that releases Him to deal with them more profoundly as a result.
Sid: Mike our time is slipping away.
SID: Sid Roth here with Jean Blasi. I’ll tell you something, the rejection this woman went through, she now has come to know the Messiah, she is filled with the Holy Spirit, begins to speak in a language her brain had never been instructed, worship words to God. And then what happened to you, Jean?
JEAN: It was like floodgates opened, I prayed and prayed. It was like I couldn’t stop. Just as fast as I had started, all of a sudden, I just came to a stop. I slid back a little. There was a chair against the wall, and I slid back there. I saw the hand of Jesus go inside me, and come back out, just lift His hand back out. And these are the words I said: “You’ve healed every hurt and rejection and wound I’ve ever had.” I felt like I had never been wounded in my whole life. I felt so clean, I felt so healed. I knew He had sovereignly gone in, from the time even when I was in my mother’s womb, and healed.
SID: He healed you and took all that out, as only God can do. Took all of the hurt, and all of that rejection. But she still had a demonic interference. Someone said there’s more. What happened?
JEAN: Thank God for people who are honest. This lady in my life immediately after me receiving Jesus, she said “Jeani, we can see you’ve been touched by God, and we know that you know Him now and that you’re so full of His love. But honey, you need deliverance.” And I said “Is that more of Jesus?” That was always my question. She said yes, and I said “Let’s do this.” She sat down, she did not know me, she was new in my life, and she delivered me from a spirit of death that was in the generations.
SID: Isn’t it interesting, you told me that she asked you about death; about you dying.
JEAN: Yes. She delivered me from that spirit of death, but she turned blanched white when the Lord showed her to get a spirit of death out of me. Her mouth fell open. She said “Did you die when you were 3?” I said yes.
SID: Isn’t that amazing that God spoke through her. You knew it was God.
JEAN: Yes I did. Well then, my rejections had rejections, my fear had fear. So then she got a spirit of rejection out of me, and a spirit of fear. I didn’t tell you this Sid, but before I met Jesus,
I would not allow my children to ride even in my best friend’s cars. They always had to be with me. I said “If they’re going to get killed, I want to die with them.” Isn’t that a bleak outlook on life?
SID: Listen, if you hadn’t been set free by Jesus, there’s no way you could’ve flown to Charlotte, North Carolina and done an international TV show. In a million years would you have done that?
JEAN: No, no way. In fact, I told my deceased husband, before I met the Lord, “Norm, you will never get me on an airplane.” I know I would’ve died. You can literally have a heart attack if the fear is bad enough, and I know I would’ve died. I said “You will never get me on a plane.” Then I met Jesus, and the next thing I know, I’ve lived on one the last 28 years. I love it.
SID: Jean, there are people who have so much hurt, so much rejection, so much fear. Would you pray for them right now?
JEAN: Yes, I would love to. I want you to listen in your heart, not your head. You can’t do anything but reach out to the Lord with your heart. Lord Jesus, I ask You to reach in and touch these hearts. Lord, today You’ve shown me there’s people who fear constantly, every day, all day long, about their children and their neighborhoods. Lord, I want to right now pray for the safety of these children in the neighborhoods and some of these schools. I appropriate Your 91st Psalm,
which is a divine hedge of protection. I ask You to establish angels, Father, around these children.
And Lord, I thank You. Lift off, and Lord we cast away that spirit of fear. We bind it and break it’s power. Lord, we say these mothers will not fear any longer. We bind up the forces that cause it. And Lord, we thank You now. We trust in You. We ask in Your name, Lord Jesus. We trust in You, and we trust in Your Word. And I thank You Lord, You’ve already shown me today the multitudes of mothers who are finally going to take a deep breath and rest. So we just say be free in Jesus Christ’s name.
SID: Jean, I believe some wonderful things just happened, but what is normal for you is walking in miracles. In fact, God said a statement to you that is so wonderful. He said “We reason away more of God’s kingdom than we walk in.” Is that you? Well say “Devil, no more. I’m going to follow these inclinations of the Holy Spirit.” And my inclination of the Holy Spirit is that you are primed for miracles, and we are going to pray for you when we come back. Don’t go away. Be right back.
SID: You know, when the Messiah came to Earth some 2000 years ago, the world was a little simpler than it is today. The world was divided into two people groups. There were Jewish people, who lived in the Land of Israel, and then there were gentiles. The word “gentile” means nations. There were people that lived in all the other nations and there were people that lived in Israel. It was fairly simple. But I want you to understand there is a call by God for people that are from the gentile nations and it’s different than the call by God for people that are from Israel. Let me explain this from Scripture. Romans 11:11 says, “The call for those from the nations.” And you know what? I find very few people from the nations that know what God Himself has called you to do. So this alone is worth your watching me. Romans 11:11: “To provoke them,” that’s the Jewish people, “to jealousy salvation has come to the gentiles.” In other words, the call of the gentile is to provoke the Jew to jealousy. Meaning you’ve got something that we Jewish people want and it’s time to show it. If not now, when? Now the call of the Jew, very different. The call of the Jew is found in John, Chapter 4, Verse 22: “Salvation is of the Jews.” A gentile, someone from the nations, that believes in Jesus owes a debt of gratitude to the Jewish people because some Jewish person somewhere on a chain of people was truthful to share the Good News with gentiles. “Salvation is of the Jew.” Now if you get, if the gentiles do their job and reach the Jews, if the Jewish people do their job and reach the gentiles, guess what you got, the whole world. Oh God, you’re so marvelous. You make it so simple. We make it complex. Now the key, and very few people know this, there is a key for the judgment on nations. It’s always been, but especially in the last days, it’s increasing with intensity. You see, the judgment of God is contingent on what you do with Israel. God will punish Israel for sin, but God uses Israel to punish the nations for sin. Let me share a couple scriptures. Genesis 12:3: “I God will bless those who bless you,” that’s the Jewish people, “and curse those who treat you with contempt. All the families on Earth will be blessed through you.” Or the reverse is true. All the families of the earth if they come against you will be cursed. Again, this is so simple, but so basic. Now nine out of the 10 worst economic disasters in the history of America since the records were kept by FEMA occurred, nine out of 10, within days, hours of the United States coming against Israel. Nine out of 10 of the worst economic disasters. Obadiah 1:15: “The day is near when I the Lord will judge all godless nations. As you have done to Israel, so it will be done to you.” You say, Sid, that’s Old Testament. No. That was just the only book that the first church had, the Old Testament. They didn’t even have the New Testament. You know that. But let me give you the same thing in the New Testament for those that don’t understand it’s all God’s word. Matthew 25:40 is the separation of goat nations and sheep nations separated on one issue. Here’s the one issue: “And the king will answer and say to them, ‘Assuredly I say to you, in as much you did it to one of the least of these my brethren,'” Jesus says, “You did it to me.” That’s the issue between the goat nation or sheep nation. A goat has a mind of its own. A sheep nation follows the shepherd. “As you have done to one of the least of these my brethren.” I looked up the word “brethren” in the Greek. Do you know what it means? “From the womb.” His physical brethren. Jewish people. Jesus is saying this. You see, I believe the dividing line between the true body of believers and the counterfeited will be on this single issue. And I promise you this, if you don’t understand the Jew in Israel from God’s perspective then you will go into further heresy. I promise you that. But if you do, what’s the favor of God?
SID: Hello. Sid Roth here. Welcome to my world where it’s naturally supernatural. I love the rarified air of Heaven. Did you ever see the movie, “Chariots of Fire”? Did any of you see that? It’s a true story about a Christian runner and he had a line. It was so wonderful. He said, “I feel the pleasure of God when I run.” Do you remember that line? Well my guest could have a line like that, except it would be a little different. He would say, “I feel the pleasure of God when I worship God.” I told you that certain psalmists tap into certain frequencies of Heaven. We’ve had people like Julie True tap into the frequency of supernatural peace. My guest Roy Fields taps into a God hunger frequency. You, if you think you’re hungry for God now, wait until you hear this supernatural frequency that will move you into a—because it’s from the heart of God. Then everything opens up to the supernatural realm. Do you want that? Do you want that? You know, my guest has led revivals throughout the world. He’s been with Reinhart Bonnke, with Rodney Howard Brown. But I want to take you back, Roy Fields. Age 11, for the first time in your life you experienced the presence of God. What was that like?
ROY: I’ll never forget it. It was a bunch of people that were hungry for God, that had gone to church from different churches. We were at a house and they had a traditional, you know, I guess it’s a traditional Bible study. Everybody was together and there were about 40 of us packed in this living room. And these five acoustic guitar players were across the front, and they were all singing the song, “I Lift my Hands.” And I’ll never forget, Sid, I remember them singing, [singing] I lift my hands to the coming king, to the great I Am to you I sing. For you’re the one who reigns within my heart. [talking] And I was melting. I never felt anything like the warm feeling as I did that day. And I remembered in the middle of that I said, “Lord, if this is what it’s like to feel your presence, if this is what it’s like when people lead worship, I want to do this the rest of my life. I’m addicted.”
SID: Now in the midst of your revivals, you have songs downloaded to you. Tell me about the song, “Unto You.”
ROY: I was in Muskegon, Michigan in 2010, just recently. We were in a 54-day revival, and the worship would last sometimes two hours. Nobody wants to leave the room, and I love that. And in the middle of that I heard this melody. Now I’m not really a writer. I really try to hear. I try to hear what’s being sung in Heaven. I’ve never been to Heaven yet, but I try to hear that sound that I felt when I first was touched. And “Unto You”, I heard that melody. That melody was [singing] da, da, da, da, da, da, da, da, da, da. [talking] I just could hear it over and over. Well two hours later, we’re all singing this thing. There weren’t even any words. It was just worshiping the Lord.
SID: You know what? I’m moved from these songs that you get from Heaven, they’re all about God as opposed to us or all the other things. I want to release you right now. I want to hear, “Unto You”, because I want you to know something is going to be downloaded as you hear Roy Fields, “Unto You.”
ROY: [music, singing] Your creation lies within, falling down before your throne. With a mighty hand unto you, Lord. There is no greater God than our king. There is no greater song we could sing. For you are holy. Lord, you are worthy. Unto you glory in the highest. All the kingdoms of this world will surrender to you, God. Forever you ascend, reign victorious. There is no greater God than our king. There is no greater song we could sing. For you are holy. Lord, you are worthy. Unto you glory in the highest. Every creature great and small, saints and angels one and all bow in reverence at your feet. Every creature great and small, saints and angels one and all bow in reverence at your feet. For you are holy, Lord, you are worthy. Unto you glory in the highest. For you are holy, Lord, you are worthy. Unto you glory in the highest. For you are holy, Lord, you are worthy. Unto you glory in the highest.
SID: Hello. Sid Roth here. Welcome. Welcome to my world where it’s naturally supernatural. I want to live in the presence of God 24/. And more important I want you to live. It’s actually more important to me I want you to live in the supernatural of God 24/7. My guest went to Heaven and was taught by Moses, Jeremiah, Isaiah, the Word of God with the revelation of what they understood now that they’re in Heaven. And he’s been sent back here to teach you. Can you imagine how quickly you’re going to grow when you get these revelations? I can’t wait because the more I hear him share this, the deeper and deeper it gets. And as I like to say, anything my guests can do, you can do better. So you’re 18 years old. You’re Catholic. You get a free trip to Disney. You want to go Orlando. You’re 18. You want to go to the clubs. And so you need a room, not too expensive, and you rent a room, and the woman happens to be a very strong Christian that goes to a church that Benny Hinn is the pastor of, and she nags you to go. So you go to this church. What did you see?
RICH: You know, I thought it was going to be a traditional mass, you know, hour and a half.
SID: Of course.
RICH: Walk in the place. The worship was going on and there was a presence, an atmosphere of the Holy Spirit, which I didn’t know at that time. But I went up on the balcony, sat in there and instantly the presence of God came on me, and I started weeping and crying. But it was something I could not stop. So I forgot the message, I don’t know what Benny Hinn preached about. All I know is the presence of the Holy Spirit came on me. I wept. I felt like tingling going throughout my body, and I was captured in the atmosphere of God.
SID: And I mean, God is so good. He’s getting ready to go home and he hears the audible voice of God, “Do not go home. Stay in that church. Get mentored. Get discipled.” And then after that he literally, tell me about when you heard God’s voice, about the helmet.
RICH: Yes. Actually I never ended up going to Disney. I went to the church, Orlando Christian Center just about every single day, any event that was in church. Sunday night, Pastor Hinn used to have a healing service every Sunday night. I was in the healing service, touched by the presence of God. On the way back to the house a guys, “You want a ride?” I said, sure. I’m on motorcycle, wearing the helmet. I’m leaving the church. About two blocks away from the church I hear the voice of the Lord from inside of my helmet. It sounded like rain. And He said to me, “You’re not going back.” So I took the helmet out and I looked in the helmet, and I told my friend, “The Lord spoke to me.” And he goes, “What do you mean?” And I go, “He’s in the helmet.” So he stopped on the side, and he goes, “Dude, God is not inside the helmet.” And I said, “God is inside the helmet.” I had no idea how the Lord functioned. I was just saved days. And I knew right away that it was God talking to me. And the Lord says, “Don’t go back.” I stop at a pay phone and call my house and tell my father, “I’m not going back. I’m staying.” Mother says, “What?” I said, “Dad, Jesus talked to me.” And he goes, “Really?” And I said, “Yeah.” “What did he say?” I go, “He says I need to stay here.” And he goes, “Well if you don’t get on the plane tomorrow I’m going to,” and he said some really bad words, “and I’ll go get you myself and drag you back to Hawaii.” So I said to him, guess what, “I’m not going.” Hang up the phone and I stay in Florida for the next nine years.
SID: You know what? He saw so many miracles. I mean, he had visitations and just so many things. It’s hard for me to comprehend that he backslid. I guess his gifts were beyond his knowledge of how to use them and people talked, and he got hurt. And he went into business. How could you backslide after all that you saw?
RICH: You see, that’s something that I was wondering myself. I went through some things, oppositions and some trials. And you know, it’s interesting to see how little by little, you know, it’s not something that you get up in the morning and say, I’m going back, I don’t want God. You find yourself compromising. You find yourself hanging out with the people that don’t carry that same fire and passion for God. You hang out with Christians that are churchgoers, but they live in the Word, living the church. And little by little, the devil is so sneaky, little by little down the road you find yourself completely backing the things that you say you’ll never go back, you know. And that’s what happened to me.
SID: And you know, he felt he was going to have a heart attack. I mean, to him, it was a heart attack And he had a visitation from Jesus, and he went to Heaven. And when he shares about his understanding of the Glory, his understanding of the Word that was downloaded to him in Heaven, you must get closer to God. You must grow. And even those that are backslidden and they’re watching right now, come home. Be right back.
