SID: The Spirit of God came into this studio just now. And I asked Norvel to worship God, and he said, “Sid, God is in this studio. God has something to say people. God wants to change your life.”

NORVEL: The two main things I learned. I learned to feed the poor. I learned to worship Him, which the church I went to, they didn’t worship God. They just simply sung songs and loved the Lord. They sung songs, but we had no worshiping classes. Nobody would worship. Nobody lifted their hands to worship the Lord. And God says, [unintelligible]. God says, “If you return to me, bow down before me, lift up your hands and worship me,” God says, “I will heal your land. You can have anything you want. You’re supposed to be living all the time, you and all the other Christians, in the abundant life. Jesus paid the price, my son paid the price that you live an abundant life.”

SID: Norvel, I want you to worship God the way you normally worship Him at home. Would you do that right now.

NORVEL: [crying] Thank you, Jesus. Thank you, Father. I worship you, Lord. I praise you. I worship you, Jesus. Oh God, there is no other. Thank you, Jesus. I hold your name above all names on the earth, Jesus. I hold your name above all names on Earth. Thank you Jesus for loving us. Oh God, thank you for loving us, Jesus. He was so good to us. So good to us. I worship you, Lord and praise you. Thank you Lord for loving us in Heaven. Thank you for saving me. Thank you Lord for my being in your presence. Someday I want to be in your presence all the time. Oh God, in Jesus’ name. Worship me, son, worship. You worship me and I’ll show you how God, blessed be His holy name. Lord, I worship you forever and I promise you, Lord, I will never serve any other God. I’ll never worship any other God because I believe and I know that you are the true and living God, and there is no other. He suffered so long on the cross for me.

SID: Norvel, I’m seeing something right now. Norvel, I want you to pray for people with cancer and heart trouble. Would you do that?

NORVEL: Thank you Jesus. Lord, you know the gift that you put in my ministry for people that had bad hearts, everybody that’s looking on the screen, Lord, stretch your hands out to the screen. And pray this prayer, Lord, thank you, Lord. I remember the first time in [unintelligible] that you did this and you said, “I want to pump a new heart in the chest right now in different parts of the world. As they stretch their hand out to the TV screen, if they’re watching you, I ask you Heavenly Father in Jesus’ name to pump a new heart into the chest of everyone who has bad hearts. Thousands of them, pump a new heart in their chest that have a bad heart. Now Lord, those, there are hundreds and hundreds, and hundreds of people that have cancer and don’t know what to do. They think they have to die. Those that don’t know any better, they don’t have to die young. But Lord, you know better and I know better. I curse it. I know what you taught me in Heaven. You talked to me. I curse the roots of every cancer in Jesus’ name. The person that has cancer looking in on this TV program, I curse the roots of that cancer and I command the roots of it to die. Die, I said, in Jesus’ name. Just like the fig tree did when Jesus cursed it, die, roots. I command every cancer cell to die and disappear from that body. Thank you, Lord, for your Divine healing power flowing through the body from the top of the head to the soles of their feet, in Jesus’ name. Thank you, Lord.

SID: Now Norvel, you said that you have no down days. And if depression tries to hit you, what do you do?

NORVEL: Oh, I throw my hands up like this and say, thank you, Jesus, take a hold of me, Lord. The joy of the Lord is my strength. Oh, how I love Jesus because he first loved me.

SID: Do you force yourself to dance, too?

NORVEL: Oh yeah. Oh yeah. I get up and dance a little bit and I sit back down and I’ll sing some more, sing some more until all depression leaves. Because the devil, the devil is not dead. He’ll try and put all kinds of things on you. But you’ll have to accept nothing he puts. You or me, nobody else has the power, the love that Jesus does. We don’t have to accept evil things that destroy us from the devil. We don’t have to accept that.

SID: I have an invitation for you, and that is don’t you ever forget that God says, you have to help people that are less fortunate than you. God says, worship me. Worship Him, not just for a few minutes on Sunday morning, but make it a lifestyle, because anything God has done for Norvel, He’ll do for you.

NORVEL: That’s right.

SID: He’ll even do it better, Norvel. I believe that. Don’t you.

NORVEL: Yeah. And Sid, there’s a third part to that while we’re on that subject.

SID: What’s that?

NORVEL: Make sure you pray for people because God says, if you pray for people you’ll be healed yourself. That’s in the scripture. Pray for people so you’ll be healed yourself. God likes for you to pray for people. Pray for people. Lord, I pray for people all over the world to be shown that your holy presence, Lord, that your healing power, Lord is [unintelligible] to cause all afflictions to disappear, bones straighten out, everything, blind eyes, [unintelligible] mind, total mind, [unintelligible] Jesus, you give it to them. I ask you to give it to them, Father, in Jesus’ name. Thank you, Lord, for doing it for them, because they need you, Lord. They’re just like me. You know I need you every day. Every day. I’d like for you to bless me every day. Thank you, Lord, for doing it for those that need help, look in the screen right now in Jesus’ name. I thank you for it, Lord. I praise you for it all the days I shall live. I praise you for it. Thank you, Lord, for letting me live. I’m 86 years old. I’ve told you I’d like to come home now, but I don’t have to come home now because you remember, Jesus, I tell you all the time, I haven’t forgotten what you did for me on the cross. Why would I want to go home now? If I can get a few more people to you, Lord, if I can get a few more people healed.

SID: Let me tell you a reason you don’t want to go home right now, Norvel. I can tell you a good reason. We’re about ready to see the greatest move of God’s spirit on Planet Earth and I want to see Norvel involved. I want to see him mentoring you and discipling you, and I want to see you involved. It’s time to get out of the chair in the entertainment sport called church and go out in the highways and byways, and compel them to come in. I compel you in Jesus’ name to make Jesus your Lord.

SID: Hello. Sid Roth here with Dr. Norvel Hayes. And I’m on the edge of my seat because he’s been to Heaven and I want him to tell me what he saw. But before that, Norvel, I’m reminded of May Stafford. You said, “God, I want to see some miracles like I read in the Bible.” And according to my notes, May had six deadly diseases.

NORVEL: That’s right.

SID: Tell me what was wrong with her and what happened.

NORVEL: She was blind. Her mind was gone. She had been in an old people’s home for 11 years with palsy.

SID: She was in a wheelchair.

NORVEL: Yes. She would go to church in a wheelchair. She would sit in a wheelchair. She couldn’t walk. The Lord said to me, “Pray for that lady. Go lay your hands on that lady. Lay your hands on that lady.”

SID: So you laid hands on May Stafford and what happens?

NORVEL: My hands touched her like this and it was so strong. And when I touched her like this and all of a sudden, I never saw this before. All of a sudden, like that, and I looked down and she’s not in the wheelchair. The wheelchair is empty. And about a thousand people screamed out all at once [scream]. I looked around and this woman came walking, blind and everything. She’s on the other side of the church. I turned to her on the other side of the church. She’s running around in a circle screaming, “Jesus! Jesus! Jesus! Jesus! Jesus! Jesus!” And all of a sudden, there she was, 20/20 vision. All of a sudden, her mind came back to her.

SID: Her mind was totally gone.

NORVEL: Totally gone. She took to her wheelchair. She needed help getting this wheelchair and she pushed it around. I mean, the healing just about took the church over. [unintelligible]

SID: Well, I mean, you provoke me to jealousy. You tell me about all the people that get new hearts and all the people that get healed of cancer when you pray. And God has blessed your health. God has blessed you, everything about you, your finances, your family. Tell me what you saw in Heaven. What did it look like? What did you experience?

NORVEL: This world came from Heaven. You understand that? They have lakes. They have grass. They have flowers. They have fruit trees. The difference here, you go over to a peach tree, you pull a peach off. That’s it, you know, and you pull it and it falls on the ground. Where in Heaven, you go over to a peach tree or apple tree, you pull a rotten peach off and the moment you pull it off, another ripe peach comes on the tree all ready to eat. The thing that impressed me more than everything in the world in Heaven was my breathing. In Heaven, every time you breathe, you feel the presence of God. Every breath I’d take I breathe in the presence of God. Oh, it feels so good going all the way down to body to my feet. It feels so good. The next breath feels better.

SID: Heaven sounds perfect.

NORVEL: And the main thing I saw was a big building. And He let me walk through the building and in all the different rooms. And all the different rooms had little furniture, small furniture. And I couldn’t figure, what is this? Is this a dollhouse or what?

SID: Okay. Then many years later after that experience in Heaven, you’re in a car and all of a sudden the drive disappears and you have a vision about your life work.

NORVEL:  That’s right.

SID: Tell me the vision.

NORVEL: I was riding a car, you know. All of a sudden, God came in real strong and everything disappeared. I couldn’t see the driver. I couldn’t see the palm trees [unintelligible] in West Florida. I couldn’t see nothing. And then it’s just like, whoosh. And I was taken up to a higher level. And I looked down like this and the only thing I could see, I could see the palm trees, I could see little bitty, teeny kids that needed help. That’s all I could see. A whole circle around like this, you know, and I’m in the middle of them. And I looked around me and they’re all looking at me. All of them are looking at me like this right here. Help me. Help me. Help me, please help me. I don’t want to die. I don’t want to die. Help me! Help me! Help me! And so God said to me, “I haven’t forgotten about the little children and what you saw in Heaven, would they live. I haven’t forgotten about them.” He said, “And I want you to get me a building. Help me, son,” God said to me, “help me, son. Help me save the little children.”

SID: What did it do to your children when you saw those little children going like this, help, help, help! I could just picture these aborted babies going, help, help, help! What did it to you?

NORVEL: It made me want to take every one of them into my arms and find them a place to live and give them food. That was probably some 35 years ago. Now the older I got, I’m 86 now, and I’ve never lost the vision, seeing, trying to do what God wants you to do. The older you get, the [unintelligible] it gets.

SID: The two things that Norvel learned in Heaven, one, help people that are in need. You see, God is love and He’s concerned about the homeless. He’s concerned about the aborted babies. He’s concerned about the hungry. And the second thing is worship God, not just for a few minutes on a Sunday morning, but as a lifestyle. And I’m going to ask Norvel to worship God the way he does in his home. But most people, they don’t do this in their home. They just do it for a few minutes on a Sunday morning. And I tell you, the favor that Norvel operates under, you are going to operate under because this is a change in your destiny. Don’t go away.

TVBackground_Hayes_SHOW716

SID: Hello. Sid Roth here with Dr. Norvel Hayes. He is going to answer a question that I believe every single one of you have asked at one time or another. You see, Norvel was just a young boy, 10 years of age, and his mother who was a faithful Baptist, went around witnessing to people, she gets cancer and at age 37, she dies. And Norvel, that crushed you. You were, what, about 10 years of age. Your mother dies.

NORVEL: I cried for four years.

SID: Four years you cried.

NORVEL: Yeah. I cried for four years. My mother died. Every time I thought about my mother I’d have to leave the room and I went out the house and cried my eyes out.

SID: And you got to the point where you said, okay God, I need an answer.

NORVEL: Yes I did.

SID: Tell me the question you asked God.

NORVEL: I asked God why didn’t He heal her? I said, “Because I know you’re a healer, Jesus, but I don’t understand why you didn’t heal her. She has a soul in her and you say that one soul is worth more than the whole world. Well you let my mother die rather than live, and she could save a number of souls for you, worth more than the world. And you are a healer. Now why didn’t you heal her?” He said, “I didn’t kill your mother with cancer.” God said, “I had nothing to do with it. Nothing.” He said, “I couldn’t heal her.” I said, “That makes no sense to me for you to say that because I read Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, and you healed everybody in town on this earth. You’re the same as you were then.”

SID: So why couldn’t He heal her?

NORVEL: He said, “The church she went to, they failed to teach her about my divine healing power. So therefore, she didn’t know a thing about it. If they had taught her correctly she could have got healed.”

SID: You know what comes to me Norvel, the scripture that says, “My people die for the lack of knowledge.”

NORVEL: That’s exactly right. He said, “My people,” that’s Christians, “my people for the lack of knowledge. You have a church out here. But just because you have a church with a bunch of people, that’s no sign you’re doing anything much.

SID: You know Norvel, even today most churches fail to teach about the divine healing power. But Norvel has a passion for people to understand Bible faith, for people to be healed. And cancer and heart conditions, forget it. You stand no chance when Dr. Norvel stands up. Now Norvel was a successful businessman. He had 14 businesses at one time.

NORVEL: And 14 secretaries.

SID: And 14 secretaries.

NORVEL: One for each business.

SID: Many of them were million-dollar businesses. And all of a sudden, as he likes to say, he was minding his own business and God speaks to him. What did God tell you?

NORVEL: I was saying a little prayer in my heart one night. And I couldn’t understand and I began to weep. And He said, “You’re killing yourself. You’re working so hard. You’re killing yourself and you’re not doing anything for me.”

SID: Okay. I want to jump forward now. You go to a dump and you see a little girl there that had a major, profound impact on your life. Tell me about that.

NORVEL: Yeah I did. This little girl walked up to me, just holding a glass bottle, she said, “This is all the milk I’ve got.” Well when she said that, the Holy Ghost jumped in me and rose up like this, and I couldn’t even talk. I turned my face toward Heaven and I said, “God, is this the kind of ministry you’ve given me for leaving the church?” And the Lord said to me just as plain, “My son, be faithful to me here and I will promote you. I am going to set you on a high hill and the light of God will shine from you to many men. Now you go in peace in Jesus’ name. Go in peace. Go in peace and trust me. Go in peace. Love thy neighbor as thyself.”

SID: I want to find out what Norvel Hayes saw in Heaven. He’s been there several times. I’ve never been there. I’ve read about it in the Bible. But I want to find out why it was so wonderful he didn’t even want to come back. But you come back.

TVBackground_HayesMrw_SHOW715

SID: Sid Roth here with Zona Hayes-Morrow. Zona, you’ve been attacked with life-threatening things and you have won each time. In ’94, you had what the doctors diagnosed as kidney failure. Tell me about that.

ZONA: They diagnosed me to be put on dialysis and I got down to 64 pounds, and I was getting tired. That’s how people die, is when they get tired.

SID: I’ve seen people get so tired that they give up.

ZONA: That’s exactly right.

SID: That’s when the devil hits you.

ZONA: But any disease, anything, any kind of a disease or high blood pressure, or diabetes is a name that a doctor put on the devil, period.

SID: I like that. I like that.

ZONA: And it’s not normal, you know. And so I asked the Lord, I said, “What do I do, Lord?” I mean, I was talking to Him. I never said it out loud. I never, I talked very little when I was on dialysis. Because you start talking symptoms, and symptoms are, they’re not real and they’re symptoms. And so I asked the Lord what to do, and He said, “I want you to go on the dialysis center and there’s 50 dialysis recliners in there. I want you to take a blanket and I want you to put the blanket over your head because you cannot watch and see what that machine is doing. It’s taking all of your blood out of your body and cleansing it, and putting it back in your body. Don’t watch that or you’ll get more tired and that’s when you’ll die.” I said, okay.

SID: So did you really pull the blanket over your head?

ZONA: I sure did.

SID: What did other people think? They thought, I just went in automatically and I put the blanket on me, and stuck my arm out. I had a fistula and they put needles in my arm, and they all of course, they were hollering at me, “Zona, Zona, Zona,” and they said, “put the blanket down.” And I thought, no, I’m not doing it. I’m not going to look at the machine. So for three months I never looked at the machine again.

SID: You know, Zona, you told me something else that impressed me. You see, as a young girl she would go around with her father, but really wouldn’t listen to a word he was teaching. She had it memorized, but she really didn’t have it in her heart, wasn’t really comprehending, you know, she was tuning him out. Then God tells you to read his books.

ZONA: When I read my father’s book, see, this was two years before I was attacked again. He said, “I want you to read my book through seven times. Then I want you to read it through once a month until I tell you to quit because you’re going to need it.” I had to keep, I had to start building myself up for, when they diagnosed me with dialysis the second time, they gave me 24 hours to live if I did not go on dialysis the second time. And when I did that, the Lord, I mean, He just miraculously, when I didn’t react, I did not react when they said, you’re going to have to  go back on dialysis. All I said was, to myself, not again. And so I got, I just started praying and just kept real quiet except when speaking to the Lord. And it’s just, you know, I saw myself healed. I’d stand in the bathroom and I’d close the door, and I’d take a glass of water. I poured it in the commode. I’d tear toilet tissue off. I’d flush the commode and I’d say, “Thank you Lord for a miracle in my kidneys.” I’d flush the commode. I’d go to the sink, put the cup down, wash my hands, straighten my clothes. I did that about five or six times a day because faith comes by hearing and hearing the Word of God.

SID: So you were seeing yourself as a healed person using the toilet normal, flushing the commode. You picture what she’s doing? I mean, that is such a stubborn faith. If you hadn’t exercised that stubborn faith, do you think you’d be here right now

ZONA: I would not. I would not. If I didn’t remember how my dad stood in the gap for me, how he stood in the gap for the growths, I was a six-month baby, a six and a half, seven-month baby, and I weighed four pounds, 10 ounces when I was born. Got a blood disease, got ran over by the car and the car drug me under and dropped me off. Different things that happened and the devil, the first time that Spirit of Death came to me he said, “I am going to kill you because you’re the closest thing I can get to Norvel Hayes to make him stop.” That’s exactly.

SID: But he missed. He made a mistake.

ZONA: That’s right.

SID: He picked on this little lady that says, devil, that’s enough. I believe that you can pray right now and people are going to be healed all over the audience. Would you do that?

ZONA: Yes I will. Father, in Jesus’ name I pray for all these people, Lord, the viewers, the people in the audience here, and I thank you Lord for your healing power, your authoritative power, death and life, for the power of love, not when your afraid. In the power of love, I thank you Lord that your healing power flows from the top of their head to the souls of their feet, driving out everything that’s not victory in their minds, in their bodies, in their families, in their finances, every single thing. Satan, you’re a liar. You take your hands. Diabetes, you go in Jesus’ name. High blood pressure, you go in Jesus’ name. Kidney stones, go in Jesus’ name. Liver problems, go. I speak to every person’s body right now that’s viewing this program, and I thank you Lord. All they have to do is start thanking you, Jesus, for your miracle working power, for your healing power flowing through my body, in your delivering power in Jesus’ name. Amen.

SID: Zona, tell me something good that has happened to you, something good, very quickly, because this was a staggering dream you had of people in Hell. Very quickly, tell me about that.

ZONA: Well I’ve seen a lot of flaky people. I’ve seen, you can’t compromise. Your ministry is, your success in ministry in serving God is in your character and integrity, not how good you preach, in your character and integrity first. And I had a dream of Hell, and I saw, I was on a cliff. I saw a cliff and I saw people falling into Hell with bibles. That’s what I saw.

SID: So the outside isn’t what counts. It’s the inside. Do you have the Word of God, the Messiah of Israel inside of you? Well if you have sin inside of you, he can’t be inside of you. This is the good news. If you repent of your sins, turn from those sins and turn to God, He’ll give you the power to overcome. He’ll cause your sins to be wiped away and then you ask Him to live inside of you and be Lord of your life, and then you read the Bible and you serve Him. It’s so simple. You need help to be confused, but where we’re living right now in the times we’re living right now, if you do not turn to God, you’re meshuggah. That’s a Hebrew word and it means “crazy”. Stop being meshuggah. Make Jesus your Lord. Let me tell you something. There is no greater peace, purpose, meaning than making Jesus Lord in your life.

sidroth on October 10th, 2013

TVBackground_Weiss_SHOW713

SID: Sid Roth here with Doug Weiss. Dr. Weiss, there are so many people that are addicted to things like pornography and they seem as though they’re stuck.

DOUG: Yes, yes.

SID: Why are they so stuck?

DOUG: Well, Westerners like to talk to Jesus, talk to God, but they don’t want to talk another person because of pride. Okay. James says, if we confess our faults, Jesus will forgive us and cleanse us. But in James 5:16 it says, “If I confess my faults to my brother, to another, then I may be healed and my prayers will be effective.” So I can be forgiven, but not healed. That’s why they’re stuck. They’re forgiven, but not healed. They’re using that verse backwards. If Doug keeps his secrets to himself, he’s guaranteed to stay sick and his prayers will be ineffective. That’s why they’re not working. So they’re stuck.

SID: You know, someone heard Doug’s teaching and he’s an usher in a church. And he said, “I’m going to do something about it.” Tell me about that.

DOUG: Well he got tired of men being stuck, because he was hearing about it. So when I came, I did a men’s conference. And he said, “I’m going to start talking to guys.” So he knew all the guys at church. He would grab them by the hand and hold their hands, Sid, and he would say, “When was the last time you were inappropriate with yourself or inappropriate with images?” He’d look them right in the eye. And the guy did that looked down, he said, “We’re going to talk about and then if it’s real serious you can go huddle up. I am not going to stay watching you stay sick anymore.” He was just tired of it in his church. And just one guy changed so many men’s lives because he changed the rules of engagement. I’m going to ask and they’re going to tell me. And he was old enough that he could get away with it. It was great.

SID: We handle a little bit of this. But tell me some practical steps that you can do.

DOUG: Sure. Real practical like getting rid of thoughts of lust. Get a rubber band, put it on your wrist. Any time you lust or scan a woman, snap it.

SID: That hurts.

DOUG: It hurts. Ring the bell, spank the dog. Right.

SID: Pavlov. Okay.

DOUG: Yeah. Eighty percent of your lust life will shut down in one month. Okay. Get the porn blocker on your cell phone, on your computer. Stop that stuff from going on. If you’re engaged in any kind of Internet inappropriate texting or Facebooking, shut those things off. Most of us don’t need social media. We just don’t need it. Shut those things off if they’re dangerous for you. And women need to get engaged by asking intelligent questions and making sure the porn blocker is on, and making sure that your husband is actually taking some responsibility for his son’s sexual development. And there’s a lots of teaching on that. Any guy can become an expert even though his dad failed him like my dad failed me.

SID: Tell me about a real life person. Tell me about Dwayne.

DOUG: Dwayne is a sad case because Dwayne kind of was like me. He had a pornography problem, but he had a secret, right. He met a good Christian girl, married her, but never told her.

SID: Okay. I’ve heard the phrase, “Our secrets make us crazy.” Is that true?

DOUG: Yeah. Our secrets make us sick. They show up. First lust, then sin, then death. They show up. So what happens is he kept the secret. Then he meets somebody. He has an affair. Okay. Now he’s a successful business guy at this point. He’s 15 years into the marriage. Right. Has an affair, gets the girl pregnant. Now he not only has to tell his wife he had an affair, now he has another child. See, he didn’t have to have that happen. No man needs to have that happen. No woman married to a man needs to have this happen to her. If they clean up first, they don’t have to go through this process. But if we don’t clean up, what happens is then our sin will eventually expose us, because God loves us and He wants us to have a supernatural clean life in which these things are not a part of life, these consequences are not happening, and that will prevent some of that [trouble].

SID: You talk about, in the last days, these Jezebel spirits will be raised up. Explain.

DOUG: Well that’s already all over the world. And it basically says, no matter what your spiritual belief, you can be sexually immoral, that sex and spirituality are separate. That’s not true. That’s a lie. And what happens is when you believe that lie, you start getting seduced and once you get seduced, your destiny gets reduced. Does that make sense? So if the enemy can seduce you, he can reduce you.

SID: Do you realize that one indiscretion will, could possibly ruin your entire life? So some of you already know this the hard way. But if you are battling right now, right at this moment, there’s so many wonderful steps that you can take. But they’re not just psychological steps. They are supernatural steps. For instance, you at this point, how many years have you been free?

DOUG: Over 25 years, Sid.

SID: Okay. I want every one of you say a prayer. I would like, would you like to know that prayer that Doug himself says every single morning? I’d like to hear it.

DOUG: Yeah. When I wake up, I’ll say, Lord, I hate the lust of all women. I commend my mind, my will, my emotions to instantly reflectively cast them down. Lord, I am a thousand percent satisfied with my wife, my family, my life and business. And I just declare those things because, I mean, gosh, you can’t travel anywhere or be anywhere where things can’t hit you. But I make a commitment before I hit the floor that I’m going to cast that thing down. Because it’s not going to take away my destiny. My destiny is to set the nations free, and that’s mine. And God gave it and God wants to see it happen. Amen. So every man has a destiny. Every woman has a destiny. But like the people in Israel, we have to fight for our promised land. Do you know what I’m saying?

SID: I understand that. Where is God in this? I don’t understand how a man, I understand how a man could be addicted. But I don’t understand how a man would not do everything possible to be free if they know God. But people just don’t do it. Why?

DOUG: Well sometimes they don’t know how to do it, like I didn’t. I did not know. I was quoting scripture, memorizing, fasting and praying. That’s what I knew, but it wasn’t enough. I didn’t know to confess my faults. Now when God told me to I started to do that.

SID: Okay

DOUG: Principles.

SID: Someone watching right now, they have their secret sin. What they can do about it as far accountability? What would you recommend? Who should they go to?

DOUG: Go to your spiritual leader. That’s what they’re there for. And you say, what? They’ve heard it before. I mean, since the Internet we hear it almost every day. I mean, Sid, so many pastors call me and say, you know, “A friend of mine or someone in my congregation, or one of my people on staff they’re struggling, Doug. Can we send them to you?” And we say, sure, that’s great. And they get well and they get free. And what’s happening, what’s really exciting, Sid, is that when this man or woman gets clean and free, their incomes can often double, their ministries return back to their life, their destinies are taken up. And here’s what’s also exciting. I had a couple who flew in from Canada to do intensives in my office, and their children’s destiny have been relit. You know what I’m saying?

SID: The Bible talks about generational sin.

DOUG: Yes.

SID: In other words, you’re not just protecting yourself, you’re not just protecting your marriage, you’re protecting your children, your grandchildren, you’re great-grandchildren, you’re great-great-grandchildren, and the gifts and calling of God are without repentance, which means, wherever you’re at, you will not miss your destiny, but stop now, right now.

DOUG: Amen.

SID: Let me tell you one other thing. I don’t understand people that willfully continue sinning after becoming believers. Why? Because when I became a believer, I had an encounter with evil. I know the reality of the dark side, of the demonic, of the devil, and I wouldn’t want to play footsy with the devil for all the money in the world. Where is the healthy fear of the Living God?

DOUG: Amen.

SID: Here’s what the Bible says: “Those that die,” Daniel says, “Some will rise to everlasting life,” that’s with God, “and others to everlasting condemnation. Why would you die, O house of Israel?” Choose life.

DOUG: Yes.

SID: Repent of your sins. Believe the blood of Jesus washes it away.

DOUG: Yes, yes.

SID: And make Jesus Lord of your life.

DOUG: Yes.

SID: Say it with your mouth right now. Get right with God now.

DOUG: Yes, yes.

SID: So Zona Hayes-Morrow had seen miracles her whole life. But she gets married young. Her husband goes off to war, divorces her and she goes out having fun, clubbing. But a couple by the name of the Goodwin’s, gave your father a prophetic word. What was that?

ZONA: The Goodwin’s gave my father a word. The word said, “The thing that you want the most in the world is not going to happen. She’s gone too far. She can’t come back on her own. When she comes in at two or three o’clock in the morning you tell her you love her and you tell her I love her, and then you shut up, because she doesn’t believe anybody loves her.” And that’s what my dad did. He created an atmosphere of love. He’d stopped loving me because he was frustrated, because I was a backslid and I wasn’t raised that way. And he created an atmosphere of the love of God in our home.

SID: Now one day after that atmosphere of love, he puts his hands and prays for Zona on the bed. She’s not there. She’s out clubbing. She gets home. What happened, Zona?

ZONA: When I got, right before he put his hands on the bed, Sid, he asked me, he said, “What is He going to have to do, what is God going to have to do bring you back to me.” I said, “He’ll have to knock me in the head.” I said, “Dad, the church members haven’t even come to see me in three years and I see them at the club.” I said, “So why would I want to serve their God?” And so he said, “Well.” So when I left he said, he put his hands on the bed. He said, “God, you heard her. You do what you have to bring her back.” Four o’clock in the morning I came in. I lay down on the bed. I was on my right side and turned over, and my eyes were on a belt buckle.

SID: Who’s belt buckle.

ZONA: My angel. He was as big as three men. And so his belt buckle was even with the edge of my bed. Well you can imagine how big it was.

SID: Must have been pretty intimidating. You’re a short woman.

ZONA: And he was sitting Indian style and put his right leg over his left, and he got up, and he just stood there and looked at me. I tried to scream but nothing would come out. And he walked out of the room. I heard him walk down the hall. And I walked down the hall, and he was waiting at the back door, and he walked through the wall. Well that just, I ran to my dad’s room and he said, “Do you know who that was?” And I said, “Who?” He said, “Your angel.” I said, “I don’t want him. He’s too big.” I said, “I want a little one with wings.” But he said, “No, it takes a big one for you. You’re so flaky.”

SID: How would you like to pray for your backslidden children and have an angel that big come in. It was very intimidating to you.

ZONA: It was very intimidating.

SID: And then of course, she very quickly became a believer in the Messiah. Why, you saw the Spirit of Death three times in your life. Tell me what the Spirit of Death looks like. I can’t even comprehend.

ZONA: I saw the Spirit of Death the first time in Sheffield, Alabama. It walked through the wall and it said to me, he looked, he pointed his finger at me. He said, “I’m going to kill you because you’re the closest thing I can get to Norvel Hayes.” I wasn’t even in ministry then. He said, “Because you,” but he knew that eventually I would take the torch and be mentored by my father, which he’s my mentor, and because it works. What he teaches works and I’m going to teach it, and I teach it now.

SID: He has such passion against cancer, heart trouble. You have that same passion.

ZONA: I have that same passion. And let me tell you, I had an appointment at the doctor’s office and I had a sore on my foot. And the devil tries to sneak in any way he can. And I told him I was confirming my appointment, and something inside me, I had been doctoring a sore on my foot, and something inside of me said, it was the Holy Spirit, said, “Oh, I need for you to look at a place on my foot.” I went in and the doctor said, I wasn’t going tell him. I wasn’t going say anything. He said, “You want me to look at a place on your foot?” I said, “Yes, sir.” He looked at it and he said, “Surgery in the morning at eight o’clock.” It was three malignant cancer cells inside of my foot, I mean a micro inch, just micro from the bone. And they of course, and what did I do? I had to, God met me where my faith was because I didn’t even know anything was going on. But the devil meant to sneak in. But the Holy Spirit will speak through you when you give your life to Him, and He knows everything.

SID: Tell me about, I’m curious, what does the Spirit of Death look like?

ZONA: It looks like it just exactly, it’s black and it had, it pointed its finger. It has a hood. When I was in Birmingham, Alabama, the last time the Spirit of Death appeared to me, he stood right by my bed. I stood up out of my bed and I looked at him face to face. He said, “I’m going to kill you because you’re not carrying this message on how to make the devil leave you alone.” He said, “I’m not going to leave people alone.” I said, “Oh yeah, you’re going to leave. I bind you and I command you to go from me never to return again.” And you have to say it with authority because the devil works with authority. You don’t have to scream. It’s all in the way you say it. Because he’s under your feet and you have to tell the devil to go. The Spirit of Death, and he left in a split second and he’s never been back.

SID: Well you know, she has insight into how to fight in the invisible world. Most people, they get the doctor’s report. They have the symptoms inside of them and they don’t understand that the battle of faith is based on the Word of God in the invisible world, and they pray one prayer, they mean it and nothing happens. But you prayed over and over again. When we come back, I want you to talk to me about a couple of the life-threatening conditions you had and how you got rid of them in the power of Jesus. It’s different. You know, I was talking to her dad, Norvel Hayes, and he said to me, “Most Christians, even spirit-filled Christians, don’t understand how faith operates.” We’ll be right back.

TVBackground_Weiss_SHOW713

SID: I’m so excited about what’s going to happen when you are cured and you are clean, and the changes that are going to happen in your marriage, in your family, in your community. But I am equally amazed at the research that you have, Dr. Weiss, on the brain. Tell me some of the things you found out.

DOUG: You know, you think this is new. But thousands of years ago, it says, when you sin sexually you sin against your own body, but I couldn’t have a theology professor or philosophy professor explain that to me. Now when I became a researcher in the field of sexuality, what happens is when we have a sexual encounter, we have the highest level of endorphins and [unintelligible]. These are brain chemicals. It’s the excitement center of the brain and boom, you literally attach and glue to whatever you’re looking at, whether it’s real or imaginary. So some of these teenagers at home looking at pornography are setting themselves up for failure later. You can attach to certain things. Like I know a guy, when he was a boy, he attached to brunettes or a certain body type and that’s what he did. And he married someone not like that. Right? Well one day he’s at work and a girl exactly like that walks into his life.

SID: So you’re saying the brain can’t distinguish between fantasy on the computer, the imagination, and the real life situation.

DOUG: Right.

SID: So it was a time bomb.

DOUG: It was bang, you know. And so he instantly was attracted to her and instantly had an affair with her within a couple of weeks. Okay. Because she capitalized on his neurochemical reinforcement towards her, you know, ring the bell, feed the dog. Okay. So when he saw her, he salivated. And that’s why your husband is kind of doing this when he looks at that kind of thing. And so, and he’s been clean for now 15 years or so. All right. So there is healing and there’s hope. But we can actually prevent this stuff. There are teachings that can help our young men, and men, get involved. Get in the war. This is a war and every man needs to be in battle. Every wife needs to be asking the questions and helping your sons. This is time to do war back so that we don’t have these problems 30 years down the road.

SID: Now you used the phrase that I’ve used since then, that I love. And that is, every husband that I’m talking to right now, you have a different father-in-law than you think. Let me tell you who our father-in-law is. God is your father-in-law. You better watch what you do to your wife. That is powerful.

DOUG: Oh yeah. Marriage is three people. It’s you, your spouse and God. Even Christians define marriage between a man and a woman. That’s not biblical and it’s not supernatural. Supernatural is God, a man and a woman. Now that marriage, that tri-unity, that trinity on Earth as it is in Heaven is power, but it needs to have purity. Okay.

SID: Okay. When a family is walking in purity and you talked earlier about the secret sins that no one knows. But when a family is walking in purity, what changes usually occur in that family?

DOUG: Well in that family, it’s usually the environment. Where there’s no secrets there’s going to be honesty. You can be flawed and loved. You can be celebrated and cared for. Okay. But they’re going to be mature. What happens is, Sid, when someone gets into this kind of sexual sin, it robs them of emotional, spiritual and moral development. That’s why you have people who are like men of God going down and seeing prostitutes. Like, how do they get there? Because their moral and spiritual development erodes when the sexual sin comes into your life, and it robs you of the ability to make some of those choices clearly.

SID: I’m reminded of the scripture, a little leaven. “A little leaven will leaven the whole loaf.” A little bit of sin, you get away with it. You think no one knows. It’s your little secret. So what would you say to a man that’s watching us right now and they’re saying, “Well that’s me, I do it, but I can’t tell my wife these secrets, because if I do, she might leave.”

DOUG: Well what I would say to you sir is, I love you, I’ve been there, reading my Bible and having sexual sin. I know your pain. You don’t believe you’re lovable. Go find a man and get accountable. Tell somebody. Get out of your secret world. You deserve a clean heart, a clean life. But you will not get by just talking to Jesus. You’re going to have to talk to another man and get free. That’s what I would tell him. And he can get free. He really can.

SID: Now you found this out when you were struggling with your sin.

DOUG: I had a supernatural thing happen.

SID: I mean, going to Bible school and struggling with pornography. But the statistics say that so many ministers are struggling with pornography.

DOUG: Yeah, because good ministers are men and they’re chained by the world sexually. But here’s what happened to me. I had a supernatural encounter with the Lord. I was in seminary and the Lord said, “I want you to tell a man every time you sin sexually.” I’m like, Jesus, are you crazy? But what was my deal? A hundred percent of what you tell me to do. I said, okay. So I talked to my roommate and I said, because he knew I heard from the Lord. I said, “God told me if I act out sexually with myself or pornography I need to tell you.” He was like, whatever, okay. And then the first time I told him I felt really bad. The second time I told him I felt so bad because now I was, the humility of that was starting to heal me and I started to get free, Sid. I mean, I take a polygraph to verify I haven’t done anything sexually with myself, pornography or others in over 25 years.

SID: So if God could say, go free, I mean, coming from an illicit affair, he didn’t go into detail, shuffled around with foster parents, at a young age being given a book that’s pornographic, suicidal. If God could set Doug free, God will set you free. Give me one more tip besides accountability that people can hang on to.

DOUG: Well I think, first of all, you want to be accountable. But that’s an ongoing process. That’s why I’m encouraging churches to get involved in helping guys talk to each other. Let this be an open conversation. Instead of the rules of engagement being don’t ask, don’t tell, I say, switch the rules. Ask and tell, and we can be free.

SID: You know, wouldn’t it be wonderful for you to be free? I mean, yes, God forgives you, but once you, you know, your wife, your husband, because it works both ways, you know, they may not know what you’re doing, but they feel it. They sense it. Let’s get that wall down. Let’s get free.

DOUG: Amen.

SID: Let’s accomplish our destiny.

DOUG: Yes.

SID: We’ll be right back.

DOUG: Amen.

TVBackground_HayesMrw_SHOW715

SID: Hello. Thank you. Welcome. Welcome to my world where it’s naturally supernatural. My guest is a daughter of one of the generals of the faith. And I guess the devil felt if he could take her out he could kind of take away some of wonderful things her father Norvel Hayes did. Thirteen times, listen to me, 13 times, she had life-threatening disease from kidney failure to heart disease to cancer. And this young woman is moving higher than her father moved because this young woman represents and will teach you the most stubborn faith I’ve ever encountered. You know Zona, those people that don’t know you, think, oh, what a glamorous life. Your buddies were your father’s friends, Kenneth Hagin, Lester Sumrall, Joel Osteen’s father. It just, I mean, it must have been wonderful for you. But it attracted you at a young age. You haven’t even, you didn’t see your mother since 10 years of age because your folks got a divorce. It must have been very crushing when they got the divorce just as a 10 year old.

ZONA: It was a crushing. With my dad being a businessman and I had, my dad had prayed and told the Lord, said, “I don’t believe that her mother is going to raise her to serve you. And Lord, I want you to deal with her. I would love to raise her and to teach her to serve God.” And so one night I came in after visiting my dad in the hotel and I told my mother, I said, “It’s not that I don’t love you, but my dad needs me.” And she said, “What do you mean?” I said, “I want to live with my dad because I want him to take me to Cleveland, Tennessee and raise me so I can play with my cousin.” And so the next day she had my clothes ready and we left.

SID: Now as a teenager, she had something awful happen to her. She had 42 growths all over her body. And she would go to the doctor, the doctor would cut it off and then they’d grow right back. So her father being a pragmatic businessman, Norvel Hayes, he said, “I’m not taking you to the doctor any more.” That made you even angrier. Then Kenneth Hagin gave him a thought. What did Kenneth Hagin tell him?

ZONA: Well Kenneth Hagin told him, he said, “I hear that Zona has got back problems.” And my dad looked at me and my dad said, “She wants me to take her and get those growths cut off and they all come back and bring their cousins with them.” And so there was 42 growths on my body and Kenneth Hagin said, “Oh Norvel, I can curse those growths just like Jesus did the fig tree and they’ll die and disappear.”

SID: But he then went to a meeting. He didn’t curse the growths and your father is getting desperate. He’s praying for all he’s worth and he gets taken to Heaven. What happened in Heaven?

ZONA: God spoke to him in an audible voice and He said, “How long are you going to put up with those growths on your daughter’s body?” My dad said, “What do you mean? They’re not on my body. They’re on her body.” He said, “You’re the head of your house. What goes on in your house if it’s not victory is your fault.” And so He said, “You curse those growths in my name just like I did the fig tree and they’ll die and disappear if you will believe and not doubt, son.” So my dad came back in his body, came in the living room. I was sitting with my boyfriend on the couch and he put his hands on my knees, and he cursed those growths at the root in Jesus’ name, and commanded them to disappear. He asked my boyfriend, he said, “Do you believe and not doubt, son?” And he went, “Yeah, whatever you say, Mr. Hayes, whatever you say.”

SID: I don’t blame him.

ZONA: What are you going to say? And so anyway, my dad liked to drive me nuts for about six months.

SID: What was he doing for six months? How was he praying for you and how often?

ZONA: He wasn’t praying for me at all. He was confessing a hundred times a day and they weren’t going anywhere. And he was driving me out of my mind. So I met him in the hall one day and I said, “Look, Dad, you’re about to drive me nuts.” I said, “Look at these growths. They have not disappeared.” He said, “I don’t see nothing. I don’t see nothing.” He danced around like my dad could. He snapped his fingers, made a twirl and he said, “They don’t have no choice. They have to die and disappear. Thank you Lord for removing the growths off my daughter’s body.”

SID: And at the end of 90 days, what happens?

ZONA: I was a sophomore in high school. And I came in and I was changing out my dresses. Sister Hagin had taught me how to sort my clothes out, as I didn’t have a mother and she did. And so I was putting my spring, winter, summer and fall clothes together. And so I’d reach up and get a dress, and I’d see those growths, and I’d put the dress on the bed, and I’d reach up and I’d put the dress on the bed. About the sixth time of me reaching up, they were gone. That scared me.

SID: Forty-two?

ZONA: All of them were gone.

SID: What affect did that have on you when they were all gone?

ZONA: Well I like about passed out. I looked everywhere for them. And I ran out of the room and my dad met me, and I said, “Dad! Dad! Look! Look! Look! The growths are gone! They’re gone! They’re gone!” I said, “Dad, I don’t even let anybody know I’m a Christian in school because I want to be popular.” I said, “But you work for God. I don’t do nothing and you mean He loves me this much to remove 42 growths and I don’t even work for Him?” And the Spirit of God came on us and I’m telling you it was a glorious time.

SID: Now you would think someone like that would serve God with every fiber of their being the rest of their life. But Zona gets married at 17. Her husband goes off to war, sends her, not a Dear John letter.

ZONA: Yeah, it was a Dear John letter.

SID: A Dear Jane letter. He wants a divorce and she goes berserk. Don’t go away. We’ll pick up right here.

TVBackground_Weiss_SHOW713

SID: Hello. Sid Roth here. Welcome to my world where it’s naturally supernatural. I wouldn’t want it any other way. A few years ago, a top man of God had a revelation from God that there were thousands and thousands of demons, evil spirits that were released on Planet Earth that had never been here before, to cause the institution of marriage to be destroyed, to cause sexual immorality. Well we know what’s happened over the last few years. What you have in your home on the Internet, on television, on the Smart Phones, it seems as though pornography is at epidemic. It seems as though the institution of marriage is under the worst assault. It seems as though divorce is cheap. But my guest has been given a supernatural proactive way to maintain the purity, the sexual purity of your family, of your house. And if any have fallen to the addiction of things like pornography, they can be free because he has a supernatural way of setting you free. You know, I am absolutely blown away by the statistics that Doug Weiss has told me. Dr. Weiss, tell me those statistics again about pornography and people addicted to it.

DOUG: I mean, billions of dollars are being spent regularly on pornography on a monthly basis. America is number one at producing pornography. The average age of looking at pornography has dropped to under 11 to nine. I mean, we are in a battle, the enemy has declared, you talked about a spiritual battle being released on Earth. Pornography is that battle and if we don’t wake up we can eaten by it. And it’s not just the people out there in the culture, the TV and all that, it’s also, like you said, the cell phones in Christian homes. I mean, Sid, I talk to Christian schools. I say, “How many of you kids have a porn blocker at home?” Only about five or 10 percent. That means 80, 90 percent of Christian homes are having porn poured into their cell phones and their computers. That’s crazy.

SID: It’s epidemic. Here’s what I found. God has a plan for your life and the devil wants to abort it. Doug, God had a wonderful plan for your life. You were supposed to be knocked down dead for a 10-count. Tell me briefly your story.

DOUG: My story, I was conceived in adultery. My mom got divorced, married an alcoholic. They got divorced. I was put in foster homes. I was sexually abused. I was abandoned. And accepted Christ when I was probably about 12 years old at the Salvation Army. But I grew up in a world of alcoholism, drug addiction, acting out immorally constantly. I came to the end of my rope, Sid, and I said, in a camp, there was no speaking, no choir, nothing. I said, “Jesus, I know you’re God, kind of and I get that. So here’s the deal, I want to die tonight. But I will give you 30 days. I will do a hundred percent of what you tell me to do to make it fair. At the end of 30 days if my life is not different, I will die then.” That was over 30 years ago. My life has been supernatural ever since and the enemy has been losing battles constantly.

SID: Okay. When you say you will die, you’re talking about you were going commit suicide.

DOUG: I was going to kill myself, absolutely. Since I was drinking and drugging, and having sex with all kinds of people all the time, I couldn’t see that for 60 years of my life.

SID: Okay. You’re a real sport. He gives God 30 days. What happened at the end of 30 days?

DOUG: Well amazingly, a pastor came into my life and I was in Bible school about a couple months after that, four years of that. Then he put me in seminary. I mean God just supernaturally came into my life.

SID: Wait. You were addicted to alcohol, drugs, pornography.

DOUG: Alcohol and drugs left instantly, supernaturally gone. Now the pornography thing and the sexual addiction stuff, that stayed in my life for several years in Bible school until I started to use some of the principles they teach in seminary. Then I started to get free from the pornography. That’s supernatural, too. I’m clean 25 years.

SID: But here’s the thing that is so amazing. If God had taken away all three of these addictions instantly, Doug wouldn’t be seated here right now. Doug would not be responsible for thousands of people getting free from addictions of all kinds because God showed him step by step, supernaturally, how he could be free and now he teaches it to others. Give me an example of someone like you that got trapped.

DOUG: Joe.

SID: Tell me about Joe.

DOUG: Thousands of examples of people who have seen me all over. But Joe was in a situation where he had a secret life. He cheated on his wife, got caught. She forgave him. Not the end of the story. He began to go into pornography and he was attracted to a certain type of hair color and then that kind of person shows up at his work where he’s the boss. He engages in another affair. That woman turns around and sues him for malpractice, almost destroying, not only his marriage, but his business. See, you can’t have a secret. That’s one of the rules. You can’t have a secret and be successful with this thing.

SID: But [the devil] seems to sow the secret sins. It’s sort of like a time bomb.

DOUG: It is a time bomb.

SID: And it will go off at some time. And you get away with these secret sins, but you’re really not getting away with it. You’re just being set up. But there is freedom. However, there is a couple of words that I want you to think about that is the problem in many of your lives. You do not have a healthy fear of God. I’ll be right back.

sidroth on September 4th, 2013

TVBackground_Roth_SHOW6ZZ

SID: So I’m talking to my orthodox Jewish father. I’m telling him why the Bible is really from God. And then I’m saying to him, “Did you know, Dad, the Torah says clearly that the animal sacrifices will not stop until the Messiah comes.” Yeah, in Daniel 9:26, the Messiah, where it says, “the Anointed One,” that’s what “moshiach” means, “shall be cut off,” that’s die, “but not for himself,” very important, “and the people of the prince who is to come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary.” In 70 A.D. the prince, Titus, and his Roman legions did exactly what Daniel prophesied. And this would inaugurate what Jeremiah 31, Verse 31 through 34 says, “The New Covenant.” This New Covenant is an amazing covenant in which God says, “I’m going to put the Torah inside of you and you will know God, not know about God, KNOW God. It’s the most wonderful thing. Jeremiah says, “Under this [Hebrew], this New Covenant, because the Temple is destroyed you either have to say your sins are not atoned for, because without the shedding of blood there’s no forgiveness of sin, or you have to say Messiah has come. Those are your only two options. And the Messiah not only will allow you to know God, but he says, “I will not just cover your sins under this new covenant. My God,” This is what it says in Jeremiah, “will remember your sins no more.” Pretty cool. I like that. I might remember them, but God says, they don’t exist in my realm. That’s why I can live inside of you and I can come to know you. Well how can you know who the Messiah is? Big question. Ancient rabbis had a good thought. Modern rabbis, I don’t know too much about. The ancient rabbis, they saw predictions that when the Messiah comes there will be peace on Earth. They called the Messiah Ben David. Then they saw other predictions that said when the Messiah comes, he’ll be like Joseph. They called the Ben Joseph. Joseph was betrayed by his own Jewish brothers. Joseph was sold for a few pieces of silver. Joseph was put in a pit and left for dead. Everyone thought he was dead. His father thought he was dead. But he really rose to power to be the savior of the Jewish people. So they said two Messiahs. They were almost right. How about one Messiah, two appearances. How can we have peace on Earth, because that’s what the Messiah is supposed to bring, if there’s a Messiah for the Jews, a Messiah for the Muslims, a Messiah for the Christians? We’re not going to make it with three Messiahs. How about one God, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob for the whole world. And how about one Messiah, the Jew, Jesus, for the whole world. I want applause on that, too. Come on, give me a break. Moses said, since we Jewish people wouldn’t follow him, God would raise up another leader who would be greater than him. Why greater? Because the Torah says, we must follow this one, because God’s word will be inside his human body. That’s what it says in Deuteronomy, Chapter 18, Verse 17 and 18. He says, “And the Lord said to me, ‘What they have spoken is good. I will raise up for them a prophet like you,'” like Moses, “‘from among their brethren and I will put my words in his mouth and he shall speak to them all I command, and it shall be that whoever will not hear my words, which he speaks in my name, I will require it of him.'” There are over 300 specific predictions of Messiah. Let me just tell you a couple. Every one, every one, every one has come true. Every one. You know, I don’t think it’s possible to not believe Jesus is the Jewish Messiah if you think for yourself and have all the facts. It’s not possible to not realize that he is the Messiah. Not possible. Micah said he’d be born in Bethlehem of Judea. Five Bethlehems at the time Jesus was born. He just had happened to be born in Bethlehem of Judea. Isaiah said there would be a miracle sign on the world, 7:14: “A virgin shall conceive.” It was a young woman. That wouldn’t be a miracle. That’s normal. “And this child would be called Emmanuel, God is with us.” Now this Messiah would be from the ancestry of King David and the gentiles would follow him. Isaiah said, “In that day there shall be a root of Jesse,” that’s David’s father, “who shall stand as a banner to the people and the gentiles will see him.” Well what Messiah did the gentiles follow? Jesus. It’s pretty clear. Zachariah 11:13 says, “He’d be betrayed for 30 pieces of silver.” You know how many pieces of silver he was betrayed for? Thirty pieces of silver. Listen to this, the silver, Zachariah said, would be thrown into the House of the Lord, the Temple and it would be for potters. It would be, let me read this exact. He says, “And the Lord said to me, ‘Throw it to the potter.'” Guess where he was buried? Potter’s Field. He would die by crucifixion before they even knew about crucifixion. This is Psalm 22: “My life is poured out like water. All my bones are out of joint. My heart is like wax, melting within me. My strength is dried up like a sun baked plague. My tongue sticks to the room of my mouth.” It says in Psalm 22, “They would divide his garments by gambling.” That’s exactly what happened. He would come before the destruction of the second temple. In Isaiah 53, “Who’s going to believe the report of the prophets? All we like sheep have gone astray. We’ve all turned everyone to his own way and the Lord has laid on him the iniquity of us all. He was oppressed and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth.” You read that sometime. Dad, it’s so important. I was talking to my dad. It’s so important you believe in Messiah. Why? Because Daniel, the 12th Chapter says, “Those that are buried in the dust, some shall rise to everlasting life and some to everlasting condemnation.” Everlasting is a pretty long time, you know. So choose. This is what I want you to do. I want you to ask God if Jesus is the Jewish Messiah, and say this prayer with me out loud. Do this right now, out loud. Dear God.
