SID: Hello, Sid Roth your investigative reporter here with Dr. David Remedios. And we’re hearing something. This is the way every doctor should operate. Literally, David knows the best medical science has. He’s a vascular surgeon, but he has learned to hear and to trust God’s voice. Tell me about another one of your patients, Lynn Bearden.
DAVID: Oh absolutely. Had Crohns disease; had communication between her small bowel and the abdominal wall and the skin for many years. And it was a very difficult case. Long story short, we began non-operatory treatment to see if we could close her fissure with medications. And her gall bladder all of a sudden went terribly bad, it became an emergency situation. I was forced to go in and operate. Normally a gall bladder would take me somewhere between 30 and 45 minutes, which is about standard or average. About six hours
DAVID: Bleeding, I had to call in another colleague of mine. And all her organ systems shut down, multiple organ system failure. About 24 to 26 days in an intensive care unit, still in an intensive care unit. And what happened at that point, I had to address surgically of course the Crohns disease which I had not even touched. And my plan was, if she ever survives this, it’s going to be at least a year or more before I address this. Well she began to bleed in her bowels.
SID: So you had to do something.
DAVID: So I was being forced to go in, much against my judgment or what I wanted to do. And if she had barely survived the gall bladder, imagine an intervention of this magnitude. Long story short, we were praying, the family was praying of course, the pastor’s wife, the whole church interceding, many churches praying and I had a dream. I had a dream that I was doing the surgery, I saw what the organs looked like from the inside, I saw myself doing the procedure. And I was supposed to have a gynecologist assisting me on another part because she also had a problem in another part of her body. And in the dream I didn’t see the gynecologist. And so I told the family, I said “Look, this is extremely high risk,” “I don’t see how she could survive this but we have to go in.” And sure enough, when I went in, much to my surprise honestly, it was exactly what I had seen in my dream. As a matter of fact, at the last minute the gynecologist who was supposed to be in with me decided he would come in after I would be done with my part of the procedure. She survived, she came out of the ICU she went home. She’s leading a normal life with her family. Again, it’s hard for me to even convey the magnitude of actually what has happened here. After her bone marrow had shut down, her kidneys shut down, her heart was failing, lung failure, congestive heart failure; everything was shutting down. I mean her chance of survival was next to none. And she made it through two huge surgeries. Again, the hand of the Lord and prayer
SID: David, I’ve gotten to know you. I even asked him about my daughter’s condition and he started praying for her and he literally saw what was going on inside of her. I believe that if you pray for people right now, and I am putting a demand on the gift God has given you, some miracles are going to take place. Someone’s back was just healed, I know that. If you would, pray right now David.
DAVID: Heavenly Father, in the name of Jesus, I pray right now that wherever someone is right now, with even a carpal tunnel condition where you’re having tingling, that God is totally releasing that. Some lady, in the left breast right now you have a lump that is literally disappearing. Someone with a lung condition right now having trouble breathing, it’s been literally healed. Lord Jesus, you went about healing all those who were hurting, who were pressed and sick and Lord God I just pray that right now that you send out your healing power in Jesus’ name, amen.
SID: Have you ever prayed for someone that has had breast cancer?
DAVID: Oh absolutely.
SID: And they’ve been healed?
DAVID: Oh yeah.
SID: One person, quickly.
DAVID: A lady as a matter of fact came to my office, a dear friend of mine that lived in New Mexico. And a very suspicious mammogram, I sent her to a radiologist, did a needle biopsy, came back totally full of cancer cells. I was going to do a modified radical mastectomy. They said “We want to go and pray.” Long story short, they came back, said “Brother David, we feel like she’s been healed.” I said “Ok, well let me do a biopsy.” So I did an excisional biopsy after localizing the area with a needle and there was no cancer on the specimen.
SID: You know David, that’s even better than God showing you how to do surgery. I mean that’s kind of, that is where we’re supposed to be. Because the same Jesus that died for your sins, died for your diseases. But this life is just a vapor. What counts is fulfilling your destiny. Haven’t you felt there’s something that you’re supposed to do that you just haven’t touched yet? Haven’t you felt that there must be something more? Haven’t you felt that there’s a destiny on your life? I tell you, there is. I tell you, it’s not finished. I tell you, stop looking behind, and look upon Jesus. Repent of your sins. He knows what they are and He loves you, but you are separating yourself from your destiny. Tell God you’re sorry for your sins, believe the blood of Jesus washed them away, and then with your mouth, say “Jesus, I make you my Lord.” And then, get happy, because this is the most important purpose of your life. Dr. David Remedios says he wouldn’t even be alive today if he didn’t know how to hear God’s voice. And since God is not a respecter of persons, what He did for David, He’ll do for you. Now get right with God. This is your moment. Not later, now.
SID: Hello, Sid Roth your investigative reporter here with Dr. David Remedios who is a vascular surgeon. I asked him for the toughest surgery of his life and he knew exactly what it was, it was a dear friend. And he worked in the operating room for seven hours. And it looked like there was no way that he could survive. I mean you told me that his organs were just being destroyed.
SID: And so you went home. And what did you find out?
DAVID: Well I found out that the same time I was in the operating room that a prayer meeting was going on in my house and different people saw me and then a miracle happened.
SID: Wait. While you were doing surgery people saw you in your own house?
DAVID: Yes they did; about three different people, yes.
SID: Well that’s not without precedent. If you remember Peter, there was a prayer meeting and they thought it was his spirit when he was knocking at the door. But what happened next?
DAVID: He went home within a week.
SID: But that’s, medically speaking…
DAVID: That doesn’t make any sense to me. It doesn’t make any sense; medically speaking
SID: But you know Dr. Remedios has literally prayed for people that have gotten new organs. I want you to see a home video of one of his patients: Dee and Gary Sapp. Let’s go to that – cut now.
Gary: We’re Gary and Dee Sapp of Alexandria Louisiana. We’ve come today to tell you about Dee’s creative miracle and give you an update.
Dee: November of 1995, on the Saturday following Thanksgiving, I found myself in a lot of pain with a very distended abdomen and I asked my husband to please get me some help.
Gary: Being on the weekend the only thing I knew to do was go to the emergency room and so en route the Holy Spirit instructed me to call our good friend Dr. David Remedios. And after talking to him he instructed me he would meet us in the emergency room. And after arriving at the emergency room Dee’s stomach was so swollen, while I was parking my car they took her to delivery for a baby.
Dee: Dr. Remedios did examine me. He found that I needed something for the pain. He did give me that. I was very happy. I wouldn’t know anything else for that18 hours until the surgery was done.
Gary: A few minutes late David came in with the X-rays and showed me that everywhere on the X-rays that was black was blockage. He couldn’t do anything that evening but the next morning he would do a more extensive CAT scan, which he did and found out at that point that emergency surgery had to be done or Dee would possibly die. And so at that point David took both my hands and prayed a very simple prayer saying to the Lord “I want you to be with me in the operating room” “and have angels attend to me while I’m there.”
Dee: Without knowing about that prayer, I did encounter angels in the operating room. They appeared as small children but they were actually inside my stomach area. I could see them, I could hear them laughing, I could see them running around and jumping up and down. There was a lot of love, a lot of warmth, and they left me with the message to be at peace, for all was well.
Gary: David removed a golf ball sized tumor from Dee’s colon but before that he took out her appendix at her gall bladder. Not knowing what to do, the Lord instructed him to go through her colon inch by inch where he found the golf ball sized tumor. After removing it he found out it was malignant and it also spread into her lymph nodes. Gangrene had set into her stomach and David third stage cancer was the report from the tumor. So at that point God just really gave David some very super instructions because as he took out her colon, part of her colon, 36 inches, he was to attach a colostomy and an eliostomy bag to her for the rest of her life. But the Holy Spirit intervened and said for him not to do it, to stretch her colon together, clamp it off, sew it up, that it would work.
Dee: And it did work. Day two, all my bowel function worked. Day four, I went home from the hospital. I didn’t even need pain medication. Day six, I was actually up doing laundry.
Gary: What’s so amazing is the creative part of this miracle. That in 1996, one year later, we went back to the hospital to do a colonoscopy. David was checking for lesions, tumors, anything that could be there. And so after checking all of that, he found absolutely not anything there but came down to the waiting room where I was to give me a good report and to give me a great report. The great report was that the 36 inches of colon that he had cut out of her body was back in her body and colons do not regenerate themselves. Of course I asked him how did he know this, and he said “I used the entire scope on her and the scope is over 70 inches long.” So God did perform a creative miracle for us.
SID: Now if you have to have surgery, that’s the right kind of surgery. David, what I want to know is, you had told me that God was speaking to you while you were doing this surgery and telling you to do something fairly unorthodox, that literally, to your knowledge, had never been done before. What happened?
DAVID: Well frankly, what I normally would do is take out the colon, which was unprepared obviously, uncleansed, and just bring in a colostomy and eliostomy; take out the gall bladder which was also gangrenous concomitantly. So at that point I felt in my heart the voice of the Lord speaking to me “Just put the colon back together, close the skin, I have done the work.” And so this is contrary to what I would normally do and I want to say this with the utmost of seriousness, this is something I would not normally violate, the principles of what I know to be true and correct. But I know the voice of my Lord. And so after deliberation and prompting two or three times, I just did what I felt in my heart the Holy Spirit was speaking to me. So I did it.
SID: But there was a risk on your part doing something unorthodox that had never been done before David.
DAVID: Oh absolutely.
SID: How did you have the chutzpa, that’s a Hebrew word, how did you have the chutzpa to do that?
DAVID: It’s all about relationship. When you live a life of relationship with God, you hear His voice. And this is not to be taken flippantly or to be taken casually, this is very serious.
SID: But what about the fact that half of her colon, you cut out and now it’s there? I don’t understand this.
DAVID: I don’t either. That’s why it’s… There’s a God.
SID: Is there any way medically speaking it could regenerate.
DAVID: No, absolutely not.
SID: Listen, we’ll be right back. I believe when David prays for you, some creative miracles will happen in your life. Don’t go away.
SID: Hello, Sid Roth your investigative reporter here with Dr. David Remedios. What happens when a medical doctor hears God’s voice so clearly and combines the best of medical surgery and the best of hearing God’s voice? David, that is natural. I think everything else is a stab in the dark.
DAVID: Thank you.
SID: Every time I look at you David, I think about where you are right now and where you came from. Tell us exactly your education from medical school on.
DAVID: Well I went to New York University School of Medicine and then I went after that to Mayo College of Medicine and then to University of South Florida and after that I joined the military and participated in the first Gulf War. So I was stationed in Alexandria Louisiana.
SID: And you also, he lectures on vascular surgery. This man is a very prominent vascular surgeon. But the greatest miracle, as far as I’m concerned, is as a teenager he found himself homeless on the streets of New York City. Why were you homeless?
DAVID: Well it was actually secondary to my parents having split, and certainly at that point, with my father in particular. I was the oldest of six children, there was obviously a case of spousal abuse going on, and it was one of the most difficult things, particularly being the oldest child. And there’s a protective instinct to protect your mother and obviously I honored my parents regardless of what happened so I’m not one of those parent bashers. I say this truly because this is a fact and with some pain in my heart. But still the facts are the facts. And so, caught in the middle of them obviously, there was one point where I thought my father literally was going to kill me so at that point I ran and I ran and I ran. And after I ran, I don’t know, 15 or 20 blocks, probably more, I collapsed on the pavement and I began to laugh and cry at the same time because I realized my dad was not after me to kill me after all. And that’s where it all began.
SID: But how do you survive on the streets of New York City? How much money did you have?
DAVID: I just had my shoes and pants and shirt.
SID: But you had something more valuable than money. You had a relationship with God. You literally at that point began to hear God’s voice. Tell me how you survived on those streets.
DAVID: Literally, it was a life of prayer. I would go to all night prayer meetings. It was also, literally there were times when literally my life depended on it. In particular there was one time when these two huge guys, they seemed like eight or nine feet tall when in fact they probably were, I was short I guess. But I was literally held up and they put a knife right here on my throat, which that is not that infrequent in that part of New York City so I’m not saying anything extraordinary. This happens to a lot of people and a lot of people do lose their life under these conditions. And I said “Well Lord, what do I do now?” I just looked and there were hundreds of people walking down the street as if nothing’s happening. And the Lord said “Just yell out ‘Dad!’” So I looked and I just said “Dad!” As soon as I said that they dropped me and I ran and I ran and I hid in a store and I was shaking and shivering. And the Lord saved my life.
SID: But that wasn’t an exception. I mean I would think you would probably, every day…
DAVID: Yeah every day. It’s just things at that point, I took for granted. I was just in a survival mode.
SID: How did you eat?
DAVID: There were different people in the church that would call me up to eat; they would share with me what they had. Wherever I ended up God always provided food. There was an uncle that sometimes provided for me. There was a period of time where a lady from the church who has seven kids took me in for a while. There was another lady. I was actually going to Bible school at this young age, believe it or not.
SID: My goodness.
DAVID: God always provided.
SID: Listen: homeless, penniless, no food, and he ends up being a renowned vascular surgeon. But you learned something. As bad as it was, you learned something. You learned that you can trust God. You can trust His voice. Tell me about the very worst time that you were practicing surgery, the worst case you can remember. Now I don’t think anyone’s ever asked you that.
DAVID: Not really, but honestly, professionally, emotionally, it’s something I’d rather not remember. But it seems that in that point of greatest vulnerability is where God seems to do His best work. And in our weakness we’re made strong. So I recall there was a patient I had operated on, a very prominent man in my city, and I had done a colon anastomosis and within two and a half weeks he had gone into shock, septic shock, and he was dying. And it was about 10 o’clock that night and there were two pastors in my house and several people. We were just having a prayer meeting. I get called into the emergency room and so I go in and I looked and his pressure’s dropping. I know that he’s dying. I need to go in and to explore him. And obviously I don’t want to go back into that abdomen because the first surgery was very difficult to begin with. Well, long story short, I begin and I’m operating. I begin about 10 or 11 o’clock that night; I’m operating the whole night straight.
SID: My goodness.
DAVID: Until 6 o’clock. And I’m sure, surgeons listening to me out there, you’ve probably had a similar case and this is no exception. We’ve all had cases like that if you’re in surgery long enough. So the more I operated, the bowel was literally falling apart, it’s difficult for me to talk about obviously, and the more I try to put things together, the bowel was so fragile it was literally falling apart and there was puss everywhere. And it got to the point literally the anesthesiologist gave up, they were humming, you know, even the other surgeon across the table from me had given up and he was like “Ok, well…” It was like people were going through the motions and that’s a very disheartening thing. It’s very disheartening.
SID: Sure, you want your patient to live.
DAVID: Absolutely. And I love this man. I love my patients. It’s a calling. It’s much more than a profession. You want your patients to do well. I don’t know any doctor that doesn’t. And so at that point I kept praying but everybody around me seemed to be giving up and I remember on my way home, as soon as I finished, I did what I could do, I finished the case, and it literally did not look good at all; say probably 95 percent chance of not surviving or better. And so I went home and I’ve never wept like this Sid, never in my life have I wept like this. I wept and wept. I don’t know how I even saw the road after not sleeping all night. I got home, my wife was making coffee, and she looked at me and I threw myself in her arms and I wept and I wept.
SID: So I guess he died?
SID: No? What happened?
DAVID: He didn’t die. Well, he survived.
SID: He survived? We’ll be right back after this word. I know you’re not going anywhere.
SID: Hello. Sid Roth here and I’m on the edge of my seat. I want to find out what God has shown Hank Kunneman in reference, you saw President Obama signing legislation and what happened then?
HANK: Well a wind came through. It was a spiritual wind that blew through.
SID: This was bad legislation.
HANK: Yeah, bad legislation. In fact, the Lord is saying, too, and I want people in the United States, and really those around the world because what a lot of things happen in the United States affects the world. It’s gonna look like we’re going backwards for the next 12 to 24 months. And it will look like what is going on. Lord, are you answering our prayers? What’s happening? What is up with this legislation? And all of a sudden God is going to do something. There’s a wind that’s gonna begin to blow. This window is beginning to open up. God is literally reaching towards President Obama’s heart, and we need to pray that he reaches back to do what’s honorable, to do what’s right in the sight of Almighty God. God is gonna hold this man accountable with his relationship and knowledge of Jesus, and we need to pray that God will continue to surround this man with godly counsel. Now with the legislation, the Lord showed a wind and this wind, Sid, with such force, came in and blew literally the paperwork and began to overturn the legislation. And the Lord said, “What has been done in the open,” I mean such blatant legislation that many of us are looking at it going, what is going on? The Lord said, “As blatant as it’s been in public I’m gonna do a public display to overturn it.” And I’m telling you, there’s something with this 2010, a generation of youth, that is going to rise up and they’re gonna be part of a generation that is going to take back some of the things that was pushed out, like in the baby boomer generation, and the Lord is even gonna get a harvest of the baby boomers and begin to cause them to rise up like never before and take back certain things in our nation.
SID: What do you see for the Supreme Court?
HANK: Well there’s another shift that’s getting ready to take place. In fact, I remember when the Lord first prophesied that there would be two Supreme Court justices, we haven’t had a shift in the court for years, and I remember prophesying that. And the Lord said the exact month that the first one would happen, and it happened, of course, a few years ago. And then He said there would be a total of three Supreme Court justices, which we did. But then He said there would come another shift and we would see a retiring take place. But He said this. He said, “One will fall from their seat.” And there would be a particular seat that has been held and it will look again like the court is gonna go in an opposite direction. But the Lord is getting to shift the courts in a way, once again, towards this legislation. Here’s the thing we have to remember.
SID: Shift the court in a godly way?
HANK: Towards what is right, and I’m gonna tell you why. Now to some people they may think, sure, right. We have to remember, God can change the heart of any man, and that’s really what we need to be praying for, is that God gets a hold of the heart of every man. Do you know that if they’re voted in and they believe a certain way and they stand in their judgment as the Supreme Court justice, do you know if God touches their heart they could change?
HANK: And that’s what the Lord is getting ready to do. There’s coming a shift on the courts again, and it will look like we’re going backwards. But the Lord is gonna begin to literally become the judge over the courts and we’re gonna see a lot of this legislation get overturned.
SID: So we could see America’s greatest days. You know, if you’re like many Bible believers and you see all the negative things and all you speak is the negative things rather than what you want to see happen, you’re actually helping. It says, “Can two walk together unless they be agreed.” Start agreeing that America’s greatest days are ahead. So Hank, you have these great prophetic words that have proven, I’ve research them, you have them on tape, you’ve said them on national television. I know you hear from God, but what about the person that’s watching right now? Are they Swiss cheese? Can they hear from God?
HANK: Yes because, first of all, there is a man in the Bible named Ananias. He ministered one of the most simple words to one of the greatest leaders, a guy named Apostle Paul, and all he heard was, “Go to a street called Straight.” That’s all he heard.
SID: So he changed the destiny of the world by going to the street called Straight.
HANK: Yeah. And in the Bible he was called a brother. You never hear of him again. And so yes. In fact, the Bible gives us a wonderful promise of the Holy Spirit, and I love it because it talks about the supernatural days that you and I are living, and that our sons and daughters will prophecy. Young men shall see visions and dreams, old men. And so, yeah, common people, common people hearing and doing the uncommon things. That’s gonna become more prevalent because of the supernatural day that we’re in.
SID: See, I believe that there’s going to be such a move on young people and it will be natural for them. They’re not gonna be like us going so many years and just being involved in religion. They’re gonna, like a rocket, they’re gonna take off. It will be normal for them to hear God’s voice. And for those of you that it’s not normal, I believe it’s about ready to get normal. Hank, what is God telling you about my favorite country, Israel?
HANK: Israel. Well let me tell you what is gonna happen, not only in Israel, but I feel something happening. Real quick, I just want to speak to you right now those watching by this camera, and I see in the name of Jesus of Nazareth, I see a spirit that is trying to speak to those that are watching in the area of suicide, and I break the power right now that’s trying to speak into your mind, and I break it in Jesus’ name. I say that that will not cause you to take your life in the name of Jesus. Now there’s others that are watching, in fact, the young. There’s some young people. I see tremendous audience of young. And I declare that the anointing of the Lord shall touch your eyes, shall touch your ears, that you will begin to see and hear, and know the plans and the secrets of God. For it was a prophet that opened the eyes of a young man to see in the spirit, and I decree that now over you to begin to have visions and dreams, and to see. And I even see a leader. There’s someone, a political leader. You’re watching. You don’t think anybody knows, but God does. And you’re asking about what to do. I declare over you now the spirit of wisdom rest upon you and I declare in the night hour that you shall be visited by the Lord and you will have the answer. Get a piece of paper and a pencil. Write down what will be said, and I tell you it will be the answer that you’re searching for. Israel, Sid, America, the United States is getting ready. I mean, it’s already in process. It’s kind of like the domino. All it takes is one domino and the rest of the dominos fall. Something is happening. A Jewish revival like we’ve never seen before is hitting the United States.
SID: You know, I feel a fire in my bones that this is God’s moment to have mercy on Israel and the Jewish people.
HANK: It is. It’s their window, too. Yes. Now one thing with Israel, and we really need to pray, and of course, we know this. They’re trying to push Israel into signing certain things. And I saw them literally getting pushed to a table. And the United States basically was threatening and saying that they were gonna pull out and they were gonna cut certain ties. And this was very real when I had this vision. And all of a sudden, Israel is being pushed to the table and there was tremendous tension between Israel and the United States. And at the last moment they pushed away and said, “No, we’re not gonna do this.” And I just really believe that we really need to be praying for Israel, not only because of the visitation of God coming, but because the Lord wants them not to be pushed into something politically.
SID: Quickly, Iran. What do you see?
HANK: There’s gonna be a regime change still in Iran. I thought it was gonna happen a few years ago. But watch. The youth are rumbling in that nation. God is visiting the youth and the youth are going to lead and begin to rise up, and there will be a regime change to protect Israel.
SID: Did you hear what Hank said? God is rearranging this whole world for the greatest move of His spirit in history. Literally, spiritual scales are coming off the eyes of Jewish people and they’re having experiences with Jesus. Spiritual scales are coming off the eyes of Muslims and they’re having experiences with Jesus. And I say that spiritual scales are coming off of your eyes right now. They’re coming off of your eyes right now. And if you will say, “I believe that Jesus died for my sins and I make him my Lord,” just say it with your mouth, your words, “and come and live inside of me,” you are ready to have the greatest adventure of your life. There is not a close second. Knowing God is everything. Knowing about Him, nothing.
SID: Hello. Sid Roth here with Hank Kunneman and God has entrusted to Hank to hear his secrets about countries, about people in high authority. And Hank, before the break we were talking about for some reason you prophesied a lot about weather, but it has meanings beneath the meanings.
SID: For instance, snow.
HANK: Okay. The Lord prophesied specifically what year that these blizzards would come that we’ve seen all across the nation. And the reason why is, for example, Miriam in the Bible had what was called leprosy and it was compared to be as white as snow. Now leprosy, many times is like sin. And so God is saying over the United States is there is sin. There’s lawlessness, darkness like never before. People are turning away from the Lord. We’re in danger of bringing in a lot of false Gods and false images that are–
SID: I just can’t believe what is going on so rapidly. I mean, anyone can see with their eyes. The sin is almost taking over in some areas.
HANK: But the beautiful part of it, and this is what snow represents. When David sinned he said, “Lord, cleanse me. Wash me whiter than snow.” And it was after he sinned before the whole nation. So it was a national affecting sin that he did. And we have seen sins that are affecting our nation. The elements are responding to it. And what happened is with this cleansing is, always remember, impurities come first to the top. So a lot of what we’re seeing is impurities. Sometimes with the elements like snow and the rain, and hail, and different things is a response to God’s glory or God’s presence coming. And in the Bible, and for those that are watching, anytime that God came in the scripture, many times there was hail, there was lightening, there was earthquakes. It was always when God’s presence was coming. Sometimes when Jesus was coming into a city there would be a great storm that would try to stop him or the disciples, which those storms were not God doing it. It was the devil trying to stop the glory from going. So I think we’ve seen some of this with, for example, the snow and the weather elements.
SID: I mean, it was so amazing how many states had snow.
HANK: Yes. Well I was in Washington, D.C. and when I was in Washington, D.C. there’s a legislation that they were getting ready to sign into law. And the Lord said to them, “They will sign this into law and watch what happens when they sign it into law. There will be another blizzard that will come because I will not only bring a cleansing, but I’m also going to reveal the sin that has taken place in this land.” And God is really looking to the prayers of the righteous. He’s looking to a few people who will really cry out to Him. And if Moses to cry out for his nation and change the destiny of a nation, how much more can you and I, if we’re willing to cry out and really ask God to touch our nation in an incredible way. God will listen and He is listening. And so the snow marked, I believe, not only revealing the sin that the Lord is looking at in our nation, but it’s also revealing the glory, His presence, His power that is colliding with Planet Earth. It also reveals the convulsion and the weight of sin that is in our nation that the elements are responding, the earth is growing and convulsing at the weight of sin. It also represents the enemy who is trying to stop what God wants to do in this day. Sid, there is something that’s happening though that I think is very important. We are entering into a season. This snow was kind of a pre-warning, just like Methuselah’s name in the Bible meant that there was a flood coming. God is saying with this snow and this cleansing that there’s a window now, a prophetic window that’s being opened over the United States specifically, where God is reaching towards this nation, giving this nation an opportunity to reach back to Him, and he specifically, we mentioned in a prior part of the show about President Obama. And there some people–
SID: Yes. What is God showing you about him? Because he’s such an intriguing person.
SID: You’re either for him or against him. I’ve never seen such a division in the United States.
HANK: Well I was in Chicago back in 2006. There was a church there. And I was just prophesying and the spirit of God said, He yelled and He said, “Listen, Chicago.” He said, “Shall you,” talking about Chicago and He said, “In America, shall you have an African-American president. Shall he be raised up in this day and age.” God gave conditions and said that we really needed to pray for the president that would arise. And that is always our responsibility. Listen, we should always pray of our leaders. And God specifically is reaching right now towards President Obama. There’s a window being open where God is gonna reach to the heart of this man and we have got to be positioned to pray for him that he will reach back. And this window is very, very important because it’s not just God reaching towards President Obama. It’s really God reaching towards our nation. There’s a scripture and maybe you don’t read the Bible, but I want to encourage you. There is a powerful scripture that I want to encourage you where the Lord gave a nation a test and it’s in Jeremiah, Chapter 18, where God said, “Listen, if desire to pluck up and to root out, and if the people will choose to do good,” even though God intended one thing, then the Lord will retract and He’ll do good. But then he says this: “If I the Lord desires to do good but the people don’t respond,” okay, in the opportunity that God gives, then God has no choice. And so we really are in a place right now.
SID: So America is at a crossroads.
HANK: We’re in a crossroads. We’re in a window.
SID: President Obama is in a crossroads.
HANK: Yes, yes. And I believe this. You know, Nicodemus came to Jesus at night. And I have a prophesied this a few times because I don’t care what president rises. Now, I mean, obviously I care because you want them to uphold the things of the Lord. You want them to stand righteous. But what I’m saying is it’s not a political thing for me. My responsibility is to prophesy the heart and the will of the Lord, whether people agree with that, whether they like that or not. And one of the things that Lord is trying to say to us is, listen, if he can visit a man in a Bible named Nebuchadnezzar in a dream, okay, if God can visit Pontius Pilot’s wife to where Pontius Pilot started backing away from this Jesus, I’m gonna tell you, God can visit this president. And I believe that the Lord can do something in this nation. Let me give you an encouragement. We were praying in a particular service and all of a sudden I heard this loud wind, and again, the snow was a sign of sin cleansing, glory getting read to come, and now this wind. And the Lord said, “Watch what begins to take place.” They’re gonna report even in the natural, first the natural then the spirit, they’re gonna start reporting about the wind and the wind being a sign to this nation. And I saw this wind blowing very strong, Sid, in the White House, and it began to blow through where President Obama was. I saw his desk and there was certain legislations that were being signed into law that you and I would go, what is going on? And there was things that were grievous to the Lord, that they were being literally signed.
SID: Into law.
HANK: Into law.
SID: I’ll tell you what. Hold that thought. We’ll be back right after this word. I know you’re not going to go away.
