Sid: We want everyone everywhere walking in these miracles because when you walk in these miracles you provoke Jews to jealousy. Why, because when Jews get saved it opens up a supernatural door; it’s a pattern I mean who is the first person that God went to to form a faith race? Abraham the father of the Jewish people. Who is the first person that Jesus went to to reach the whole world? He said “I go only to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.” Who was the first person that Paul went to? Paul said “I’m not ashamed of the gospel because it’s the power of God unto salvation to everyone who believes to the Jew first. It’s a pattern and when you follow God’s pattern you get God’s result, when you go to the Jew first with your miracle because it says “The Jew requires a sign, a miracle it opens up; it’s not an end in its self it opens up a supernatural door for more Gentiles to be saved then if you went to a Gentile first. Follow God’s pattern, follow God’s Bible; His word is truth. I have a man on the telephone that for the past 30 years has been walking in an uncontrollable gift, how would you like that and uncontrollable gift of miracles wherever he goes. People get out of wheelchairs, blind eye open, but that’s normal according to the Bible. He says “We all should be walking in these miracles.” Bill Prankard tell me about that man that had, was he from Ireland, that had all those problems?
Bill: Yes, well Sid it’s been delightful to be with you all week I’m thrilled to be here again and I just totally agree I mean I totally agree with what you’re saying. You know the Bible says in Acts chapter 8 they believe Philip’s message in Samaria because of the miracles. We’ve expected people to believe our message just because we appeal to the intellect and you’re not going to see a nation turned around just by trying to convince some; it’s going to take more than that for the Muslim, for the Hindu, for the atheist to believe. And notable miracles are happening; it will be 5 years ago this coming March that a man named George McMurtry came to Toronto. He came with a group from his church to Toronto Airport Christian Fellowship to a healing conference; he was part of the ELIM church in Bangor, Ireland. They were started Jeffrey Brothers who in a healing revival, that whole ELIM Church. So they said “We need to get back to our roots we need to understand healing more.” Well George came he had had 5 strokes and the 5 strokes had left him paralyzed in his left side. His leg his left leg was withered to have the size of the other one. His arm was withered and just kind of curved up absolutely no use to it. He had a brace on his leg that kept his leg straight so he could drag it; with canes and the help of people he could get around. He had trouble with his balance; he couldn’t work and Jesus said “I have come that you might have life and have it more abundantly.” And this man wasn’t having abundant life; he was enduring life. And the doctors said “It’s not going to get any better than this you should be grateful you’re alive.” He had to have his home changed; so he had his bedroom on the main floor a hospital bed that he slept in. He couldn’t get upstairs and bathroom put in the whole thing. He came, and the night before the healing conference John Arnott the pastor who I know is a friend of yours asked me if I would take the service that night because so many people had come from all over the world. And in that night I was part way through my message and God just broke in and I said “People are getting healed.” And when I had because I wanted everybody to get healed; I asked them to do something. I said “If you need healing put your hand where you need healing; if you need healing all over your body put your hand on top of your head. Now George McMurtry was sitting about ¾ of the way back with his group and he wasn’t well and he was tired from the trip from Ireland and he wasn’t in a great mood. What he heard me say was not put your hand on top of your head. He heard me say “Put your left hand on top of your head; to this day he says that’s what I said.” And so he thought one pastor’s here; a nurse was there with him from his church and others they thought if I don’t do it they’re going to think you know that I’m rebellious. And so he braced himself; he straddled his legs to get his balance and with his good arm he pushed his crippled arm up on top of his head and he said “I was thinking just hurry up and get through this.” God gave me a word in that meeting “Someone’s hand is being healed.” The instant I said that he said ¾ of the way back in the service his hand and arm fell off of head; he thought it just slipped off but it didn’t go back to its crippled curved position it straightened out and his hand opened up; this had been 5 years since his hand had been moved. He started moving his hand and his fingers and his arm; it was perfectly normal. And the one pastor with him said “George your hand is healed you need to go up.” And so he said “Yes I guess I do.” He’s now about half way past… he’s more than half way up to the front and he hears them calling him. They’re waving his canes; he forgot his canes he couldn’t walk without his cane and he’s walking up the front without his canes and he’s having trouble because the brace held with velcro on his leg to keep his leg stiff to drag it. The velcro is coming off and so he thinks I’ll just get to the front and I’ll fix it; he pulled his trouser leg up to fix it and he realized the reason the brace was coming apart was his leg that had been half the size of the other was perfectly normal. We’ve got it all on tape when he hit the platform this man form Northern Ireland he was laughing, crying, jumping; I mean it was hard to get out of him what happened but the amazing thing was when he went back home to Northern Ireland his medical doctor said “This is a miracle of God there’s no other explanation.” The local newspaper; secular newspaper, did the front page ¾ of the paper of the front page the story of this miracle. And he’s back to work, he’s a picture of health; it’s been 5 years now. When we go to Ireland he meets us at the airport; he carries our luggage, he’s the catcher in our meetings. He drives us around to the services and he has traveled to almost every ELIM church in Ireland giving his testimony and laying that hand on the sick and the sick are getting healed.
Sid: Bill the same thing is happening again on this show the healing anointing is so strong. I believe if you tell people to lay their hands on the part of their body that they need healing that they will be healed.
Bill: I do too; because you see there is an anointing there’s an anointing on these stories, there’s an anointing on God’s Word; there’s an anointing on the book that we wrote about breakthrough and there’s an anointing right now going through the radio. And I just encourage you if you need healing it may sound simple or silly to you but you’ve got nothing to lose. Take your hand and place where you need healing; someone’s lungs are being healed; you feel heat coming from your lungs; you smoked for years and the doctors said “You destroyed your lungs and there was nothing that could be done.” I want you to start taking a deep breather; God is healing lungs. There are breathing conditions being healed all over the nation right now; if you need healing for breathing just right now grab a hold of this and start breathing. Take a deep breath; you’re literally breathing in God’s anointing; I believe as Holy Spirit came to me in Pittsburgh years ago He’s coming to you now; I believe He’s closer to you than anybody else could ever be. And someone’s right hand is being healed; the arthritis in that hand is leaving in Jesus Name. Start moving those fingers; start moving that hand. The power of God is going through this and there’s a real anointing Sid for feet right now. A lot of people that thought well I could live with this this is not a big thing but it’s affected them and God’s healing feet. I want you to believe God to heal your feet right now, they toe in Jesus Name; that foot condition in Jesus Name. And I take authority over pain and I command it to go in the Name of Jesus we send it back to hell where it came from. And in Jesus mighty Name I speak an anointing by faith, I lay hands on every sick body and I command healing to flow. We speak to mountains and say mountains be removed, there is a cancer tumor right now being healed. You can literally put your hand there; you can feel it going right now. And someone else with a lump just under the arm on the side put your hand there and you’ll not feel that lump God’s healing people Sid.
Sid: I’ll tell you you want this anointing to continue… I would have to believe in your 30 plus years in ministering in the miraculous these are the major areas that stop people from having their breakthrough. You talk and we don’t have time to go into about your own marriage. I know that this year the devil is going to come against marriage in a very horrible fashion and I believe just reading your testimony Bill in this book is going to make a major impact on people’s marriages. But more important than that they’re going to be laying hands on the sick, seeing them recover and leading people to the Lord. Thank you so much for being my guest Bill. This is the Shabbat broadcast:
The Lord bless you and keep you;
The Lord cause His countenance to shine upon you and be gracious to you;
The Lord grant you his shalom in the name of the Sar Shalom the Prince of Peace Yeshua haMashiach Tzedkanu, Jesus the Messiah our Righteousness.
Sid: My guest Barbara Yoder is red hot for theMessiah. Barbara you told me that God has shown you that we are on the verge of one of the most massive worldwide revivals in history. Tell me what you see is about ready to break loose.
Barbara: You know I just met with 17 leaders from China. They are having 10 million people a year saved so it’s already happening in some places. But I believe in the United States God is allowing us to get more and more desperate. I believe that we are going to enter a season of desperation because I believe desperation births revival. I don’t believe it’s necessarily prayer or anything else but a desperation only God can answer. God can bring the pattern the architectural pattern the plan to breakthrough. Israel was in Egypt and they had gain mightily but Egypt didn’t like them and Egypt wanted it to make it more and more difficult for them. What was it that created a cry in Israel that said “Get me out of here” because Israel’s destiny wasn’t Egypt. Israel’s destiny was Canaan which is the promise land which is Israel today. So that cry of desperation that wasn’t just a complaining cry, a murmuring cry, but there was a genuine that Israel came to grips with their destiny which was Canaan. And as they realized that no longer was Egypt their destiny so they began to cry out to God for supernatural deliverance and then God raised up Moses and released him and used Moses to deliver them to break them out of the confinements. That’s the breaker-anointing of Egypt, he broke open the Red Sea so they could get across and into the wilderness territory so they could breakthrough into Canaan. What took them 40 years should have taken 11 days but never the less that’s a picture I believe that it is going to get worse in America. I believe the true church is going to get happier and happier because I believe like the New Testament Church the real church today is the New Testament Church. The New Testament Church has great joy even in the midst of trouble, prosecution, tribulation. And people are so worried about all of these things in America and Sid I hate to say this but I’m holding up my hand and saying hallelujah because something has got to move the church beyond the comfort level. Why is the church crying today? I think it’s because they’re like Israel because they can’t have the houses and lands like they used to; they can’t afford this, they can’t afford that. They’re complaining about a comfort level when God is interested in far more than comfort He’s interested in a people who change the world.
Sid: And speaking about changing the world I cannot believe before my very eyes how the debts of depravity in the morality of this country. Just when I think it’s going down as far as it can go it goes down further. Something somewhere somehow has got to reverse this cycle that’s going on.
Barbara: I know and I think that it’s all these things that are literally pressing in upon the church. Will the church stand up and be the church and will it breakthrough? I believe that we have got to breakthrough. We have not got to be afraid of this stuff; I’m not homophobic but we’ve got to have a power that breaks the power of homosexuality. We’ve got to have a power that breaks people through drug addiction. We’ve got to have power to break people through the sexual addictions today. When I go out among my friends who aren’t saved it’s like the hair on the back of my neck stands up when I find out what’s going on today.
Sid: Now on the flip side of it there have been times in history where entire cities have had all their bars close down. Tell me one that you’re aware of.
Barbara: Well I do know that you know John Calvin was thrown out of France. He went to Geneva, Switzerland in what was it the 1500’s. And Geneva, Switzerland was the worse city in all of Europe it had the most alcoholics; the streets smelled like urine. It was known as the dirtiest awfulist city in all of Europe. John Calvin went there and began to preach the gospel mightily. And Geneva, Switzerland turned to God; now today it’s not like it was in John Calvin’s time but yet you can see the results of Christianity in what Geneva is in that it became one of the wealthiest, most prosperous cities in all of Europe because of what John Calvin did. And then his teachings began to spread to other places in Europe; I believe that that’s what’s happening today; you look at people like Reinhard Bonnke. I go to a place in South Africa where Reinhard Bonnke preached mightily the gospel in the 70’s had a huge tent meeting. And Sid one day when he was preaching he waved his hand across the thousands that were there and I don’t know but they said thousands went down in the area of Venda, South Africa under the power of the Holy Spirit. They were just slain in the Spirit thousands of them. These people were so slain the Spirit that they had to carry them home on stretchers. Well what happened was and then not only did they carry them home on stretchers, but the people didn’t come to for a few days.
Sid: I think we need a vision of the power of God and not the power of the devil. You look at the news, you read the newspapers all you read about is the power of the devil. We need a vision for the power of God. Tell me about this breaker-anointing; what is this going to accomplish in a church, in a city, in a family?
Barbara: Well, it’s gonna breakthrough the powers that are holding that city, that church, that family captive that’s what happened in Vanda it broke the power of the snake god. They had no churches there or if they did they were very tiny churches. After Reinhard Bonnke broke that power what happened was that churches began to proliferate; now it’s the ordinary church of a thousand. I’ve spoken there at a church that had 5,000; this is ordinary for that territory. I believe that when we get people that are totally committed to God and totally committed to His purposes that we’re literally going to see hell move out of the way and Heaven come in.
Sid: You know I believe that were in a period of history called the great wealth transfer. When it comes to the breaker-anointing how does this affect finances not so much to consume it on the lust of the flesh but to live in a decent comfort level and to be able to proclaim the gospel and to do humanitarian work. How would the breaker-anointing apply there?
Barbara: Well I believe that there’s a… the New Testament speaks about the god of mammon; so there’s actually a demonic structure that is holding mammon captive but God wants to release it into the righteous hands so we can administrate it for humanitarian and philanthropic effort. So what we are going to need people who know how to pray and get the revelation what exactly it is that’s holding that money in captivity, and then that wealth gets through to the righteous. You know that you can see it in some businesses now. I was just in another nation I’m not free to speak in detail about it but because it’s in a non-Christian nation, but this person has built a business that has 9 offices and over 500 employees. How did this person do it; they did it through prayer and declaration believing that God wanted to release money so that this person could literally minister to the orphans in that nation; the poverty stricken people. That’s what this person has done. And I just went to that business that had both Christian and Muslim employees; preached to anybody who wanted to and prophesied to over 100 of them. Why did I do that? Why did I make that investment? Because I believe that this person understands what God wants to do with wealth and business today. I wanted to go in and preach a breakthrough message to that business and then prophecy to them and that’s what I did. And I said that in a very short period of time you’re going to double. Now it’s been too short a period of time to see that happen. But they did hear that they were going to get a contract a new contract equal to the one that they already had that would double the business.
Sid: Whoops we’re out of time; I have a question? Are there spiritual strongholds blocking your breakthrough in your healing, your breakthrough with your family, your marriage; the salvation of your family; your finances your whole destiny. The anointing is so strong of this that in fact on tomorrows broadcast we’re going to pray for you for that anointing. In fact I believe that it’s time for the devil to not be doing to what he’s doing in your life and your family.
Sid: And it’s good to be pure; it’s a good feeling to be pure. First of all because God says “Be ye holy for I am holy;” second of all because it’s going to make you be at peace with yourself. Third of all it’ll stop having a divorce; fourth of all it’ll stop messing up your children. Fifth of all it’ll stop messing up your grandchildren. Dr. Doug Weiss do you agree with that?
Doug: Absolutely Sid, and I think that if men could see the positive side of being clean; we would have a stampede of men signing up because so many men are spiritually you know not where they want to be financially, emotionally where they want to be. Their marriages aren’t where they want to be and they think that this thing they do on the side has nothing to do with it when it has everything to do with it. You get men clean and their entire life becomes an adventure.
Sid: Okay, what advice would you give the man or the woman that’s listening to us right now that’s having a flirtation affair with someone in their office? It maybe just in their mind and it maybe just kind of joking back and forth, but what advice would you give them; how can they stop it or it may have been that they’ve actually had an affair.
Doug: If you can stop it; stop it before it becomes an affair; there is really damage there. But you need to be accountable, get a friend and say “Listen I’m talking to this girl; it’s in appropriate and it’s wrong; I’ll call you every day and I’ll tell you what I’m saying and what I’m not saying.” Set profession boundaries with her and say “You know what this is unprofessional and I feel uncomfortable and I really don’t want these emails or text. Block her from your tech, block her from emails if you can; if it’s appropriate to do that and you definitely should be blocking her from your techs.
Sid: But how do you do that if they’re I the next desk to you?
Doug: Well, if it’s communicating professionally she should be calling you on your office line not your cellphone. You can call your company and have them blocked their cell to your cell.
Sid: Okay, what does a wife do whose suspects her husband is into pornography or into having some sort of an affair; is there anything a wife can do?
Doug: Well, I mean he can set up his emails so that their all automatically sent to her; he can easily give her his call logs to see if there’s any problems that he’s calling a number or getting a call from a lot of numbers. He can set things up to protect himself. Okay, he can have a porn blocker on his computer at work and at home that gives her report; those are things that he can do. She can ask him direct questions okay, what about self- behavior, what about pornography, what about…
Sid: No, she just suspects it; what can she do?
Doug: She should ask.
Sid: Okay and what if he lies; do people lie a lot that are into pornography?
Doug: I know, I hate that Sid; in my office people come they do intenses and we actually do polygraph to verify that their telling us the truth every week.So I know people lie so there is nothing she can do about that. I wish there was; if we had that man I wish I had some kind of oil I could slap on some guys head and it would turn green if he lied. She’s kind of powerless but I can tell you what a lot of woman have done and it’s dangerous. “Lord Jesus if he’s doing anything at any cost at any expense expose it. I’m ready to deal with it.”
Sid: That is a great prayer.
Doug: You talk to the Father and He will deal with it. You just have to tell Him you’re ready to know. And Sid I can tell you in the book we actually talk about this several guys getting caught by you know their cell phone calling their lover and connecting it to their wife and they’re talking at the same time. I mean crazy stuff and this happened when guys have gotten caught, guys have down loaded pornography stopped at the printer and then it printed it an hour or two later; they got fired; they got exposed. There’s all kinds of things but ladies you really need to be one 100% willing to go down that road and say “Lord whatever it takes expose it.” And I can tell you woman who have prayed that dangerous prayer often times within days things happen that supernaturally God exposes sin.
Sid: Now you’re the expert in this but I have to believe that when a man touches a little fire it’s not going to go out until it’s a forest fire unless he puts it out.
Doug: And that’s right, so you don’t want to have inappropriate conversations with women; if you are starting down that road there is something really wrong in your heart and in your marriage go get help. Talk to your pastor, go talk to a counselor get help now; you are already in trouble. And it maybe that you’re setting up a marriage that’s not fun to be in and your blaming your wife for that. Work with the marriage God gave you because there will be favor in working in that marriage.Working trying to work another relationship to get out of the one that you’re already lazy in; do you think that will help you? It’s not going to help you.
Sid: Tell me about the holy hologram.
Doug: You know this is a revelation Sid that our bodies are created holy and a lot of women will email me and say “Why is my husband looking at pornography I thought I was supposed to be enough?” And then I explain this to them the body was created holy and what men are attracted to is not pornography and it’s not beauty even; it’s holiness. The more of the body that you see the more of the holiness you see. Now we see this in scripture in Genesis in two occasions. One with Noah’s son when his father was exposed two of them covered him, one exposed him. In the situation with the Lord and the angels coming down and talking to Abraham before they destroy Sodom and Gomorrah. Abraham bows down he’s sees the holiness and he bows down. The two angels go off to Sodom and Gomorrah; lot bows down and then he tells the angels “Hey listen you need to come to my house okay.” Then the Sodomites saw the holiness but they wanted to consume it. See holiness exposes who we are as men; we are either protectors of holiness or we are consumers of lust. And that nakedness exposes our heart. Women are holy; their bodies are holy and when you see women as holy it’s really hard to lust after them.
Sid: Tell me about James and John.
Doug: (Laughing) You know I’m a Christian Sid and when I was first… you know I was still struggling with lust and pornography and self-behavior and stuff like that when I got saved.I would use 1st John 1:9.
Sid: You know I just think everyone listening has to have an experience with the fear of the Lord, because I don’t even get it how people can flirt with fire.
Doug: I get that but let me answer your question. You know we go to Jesus and we want Jesus to forgive us and so many believers are forgiven but they’re not healed. Okay that is James 5:16. “If” and that’s conditional promise “If we confess our faults one to another we can be healed” right. The reverse of that right is if Doug keeps his secrets to himself he’s guaranteed to stay sick. So many men and some woman are trapped because of pride they won’t tell somebody what’s going on. As soon as you tell somebody; as soon as I told my roommate 25 years ago I was struggling; God started to heal me because that’s the principal. “Confess your faults one to another so that you can be healed.” That humility releases healing and that accountability releases healing. So many people want just a relationship with Jesus. If you’re struggling right now Jesus loves you and he is in the body of Christ and if you will confess your faults to a trustworthy believer of the same sex of the same gender you can start to begin to experience clean in a totally different than the way you’re failing month, after mouth year after year by yourself.
Sid: Tell me about a condition that I’ve never even heard of before but you talk about it called intimacy anorexia.
Doug: Sid intimacy anorexia I deal with a lot of people with addictions and sexual addictions. This shows up within the marriage. And intimacy anorexic will blame the spouse for all the problems. They’ll be so busy they have no time to date them or have time for just them. Withhold love, without pride, without physically intimacy; withhold spiritually will not pay with them; not connect with them will not worship with them. Will not talk about their feelings; use anger or silence as a way to control the relationship; sometimes they control with money.They have a heart that withholds the spouse feels alone disconnected and they feel like their roommates. A lot of times these intimacy anorexic have a sexual issue going on as well. That’s why we call it the two sided problem in the book “Clean” because sometimes they’re acting out but in their marriage like I have a couple in this week you know they weren’t physically intimate for almost an entire year. But he was entertaining himself with pornography and self-pleasure regularly so she has the intimacy anorexia, and in his case the sexual addiction stuff. So that’s a double-edged sword so if you’re living that you only want to get more information.
Sid: I have to believe that the world that we’re living in right now; the soon return of Jesus that everyone would want to be clean; everyone would want to be pure; everyone would want not be sabotaged in their destiny. The people listening to us right now men, women, single people, married people they value their children. They value their relationship with God. Tell me about one person that’s gone through this and what’s happened to them very quickly.
Doug: Oh, these principals have been used for over 20 years; this book wasn’t written on a weekend this was 20 years of stories of marriages being restored; men being restored, men returning to their calling in their life. Men being able to say “I am clean, I am clean.” And also leading other men down the path of cleanness and freedom and holiness; this works and it’s been working for over two decades.
Sid: Tell me one quick testimony that comes to mind.
Doug: Well I can think of you know we’ll say Bob. Bob who was struggling self- behavior; he was into pornography; he was anorexic at home. Came in and he started working the clean principals; got accountable and got into an accountability group; got accountable to a friend of his. And he’s been sober for 15 years now; okay and now is involved in ministry and touching lives and it’s awesome.
Sid: Well, that’s an example of someone that’s sabotaged because they had a wonderful destiny and the devil wanted to abort it. And of course if there’s no accountability group in your congregation then one person is your accountability group. You can do it.
SID: Not man, but God taught Richard Mull step by step how to hear God’s voice, how to operate in the supernatural. For instance, you’re teaching a Baptist college retreat and all of a sudden what happened?
RICHARD: Well I had been speaking from the Book of Acts about normal Christianity. The problem is I had never experienced any of it. I was calling it extreme Christianity, but that was my spin, this is what I believed the normal Christian life was to be. And I asked, how many of you want this? I stood up and I decided to do something against normal for a Baptist speaker, and then began to lay hands on everybody as I went around the room. And one of the girls sat down and she began to pull her hair and she began to lift her shirt to the point where I thought she was going to tear her shirt. She was rocking back and forth and making a hissing sound. And my first thought was, where’s the door, I’m out of here. And but I was like brand new at hearing God’s voice. And I said, “God, would you show me what to do.” I was still in that phase learning to hear God, is this God, is this me, is this God? But I didn’t have the luxury of time to figure out what is God. So I’m going to do whatever I sense the Holy Spirit leads me to do. And I knew at the time to pray something about the name of Jesus. And I’m going, is this coming from my head, my theological background or by the Holy Spirit? I’m not going to argue. I’m just going to pray something about the name of Jesus, because I know there’s power in the name. And prayed something about the authority and the blood of Jesus. I felt impressed to pray in tongues, which is something I had never done publically.
SID: At a Baptist college.
RICHARD: Yeah. And so I began to under my breath, kind of my hand over the front of my face, pray in tongues. And then I felt impressed to shout, “Freedom in Jesus’ name.” At that point, I was pretty sure I had picked something up watching televangelists or something. But I was not going to stop. And so I shouted, “Freedom in Jesus’ name.” And the girl all of a sudden looked at me, very embarrassed, put her head down, covered her face, and all the torment stopped. I turned around and I began to explain to this college group what had just happened. I knew that what I was saying was not coming from myself. And I was thinking, I hope somebody takes really good notes because this is pretty amazing stuff. I really have no idea what I’m talking about. And it was the beginning of the next six months, everywhere I spoke or worshiped, someone would manifest demons.
SID: Okay. There are life-threatening situations by being human. And it seems as though the closer we get to the return of Jesus, the more this late great Planet Earth is being shaken. What happened in a life-threatening situation when your baby son died?
RICHARD: Nathaniel was almost two years old. We had been strongly urged by doctors to put him on steroids and antibiotics. We tried to resist but felt that it was a pretty severe encouragement by them that they would write us up for non-compliance if we didn’t. So we allowed them to put him on steroids and antibiotics. Thirty-six hours later, I was headed back the hospital. I pulled him off my chest and the words that came out of my mouth were, “He’s gone.” You can’t prepare for a moment like that, but I had been preparing for a year believing I would see the dead raised. I had seen most of the miracles of the Bible. But I sit him on that table and I began to pray. And I said, “God, I don’t know what to do to his body, but I know what to do spiritually.” I continued to pray and I watched the minutes inch away, eight minutes, 10 minute, 15 minutes, 20 minutes. And during that time, I was answering their questions, but I was commanding Nathaniel to come back because I knew his spirit was gone. I said, “Nathaniel, you listen to your daddy. Right now, I want you to come back here.” I was rebuking spirits of death from the room. I was repenting of every sin I had ever thought of doing, every sin my family had ever done generationally. I was taking away every right that the enemy had to attack my family and my son. And in about 22 minutes I had a vision. In the middle of that hospital room, the doctors were still working on him. You could see them looking at each other. But I saw in the middle of that room a boat being tossed by the waves and I could see Jesus on the boat, and I knew that was my promise, that the Lord was going to raise my son back up. I knew we had passed the barriers where brain damage begins and all those things.
SID: How long had he been dead?
RICHARD: At that point it was about 22 minutes.
RICHARD: It ended up 40 minutes before they found a heartbeat and blood pressure. And they told us that he wouldn’t have the strength to make it through an operation, that he needed an operation. He had an ulcer related to the medicine, we found out later. And the ulcer had ruptured. And so he had been pouring toxins throughout his system into his bloodstream. They said he would be too weak to make it through an operation, that he was gone too long, that he would be brain damaged. And for people that were here this evening, they got see him first hand, running around, full of life, no brain damage, and raised, and, oh God.
