Sid RothComments Off on Our Guest Coach Bill McCartney
Sid: Well my guest is red hot the Messiah he’s the founder of Promise Keepers; Coach Bill McCartney. I’m speaking to him at this home in Denver, Colorado. Those that are football fans know what he has done in the football world. Those that are Jesus fans knows fans know what he’s done in the Kingdom of Heaven. He literally was used by God as a catalyst to draw 1.4 Million men together to worship God. This event Coach you were telling me yesterday was the first one that included Messianic Jews, explain.
Coach: Well we were in the Mall in Washington DC.
Sid: Excuse me there must have been Messianic Jews as individuals but not in large numbers, but go ahead.
Coach: In other words, we didn’t acknowledge them; we didn’t honor them; we didn’t give them their rightful place at the front where they belong. So what happened in the Mall in Washington DC in 1997 when we had 1.4 Million men, was that we blew the shofar, and as you know that’s a call to God. As you know that’s a call to God and as we called out to God it was an extraordinary time. And I need to take you to what God did with me most recently to help you to see how all of this kind of came together for me. I went into the waiting room. The waiting room Isaiah 31 says “Those that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength.” I felt led by the Lord to step back out of Promise Keepers. I felt like what had happened in Promise Keepers God had really blessed it and would continue to bless it. But that the primary reason that He called me to be a part of birthing the ministry was still unfulfilled. So I had a sense that I just needed to retreat. So what I did was on March 12, 2003 I stepped back and I went into the waiting room. And for me the waiting room was every day and getting up and spending at least a couple of hours with the Lord unhurried time where I could just ask God all the necessary questions. And I felt like God said to me “If you’ll step back and connect the spiritual dots in your life you’ll discover there’s a divine order to them.” And so I started to go back over everything that had happened prior to Promise Keepers; through Promise Keepers; what was God doing as I’ve heard you say, “You’ll find that everything is a stepping stone to what God wants to do next.” It was with that in mind that I did this, and I got to tell you that I was in that waiting room 9 months. Now ladies know what happens in 9 months you give birth. Sure enough I didn’t realize it at that time but on December the 12th I flew to San Diego at the urging of some brothers at the prompting of some of the Messianic Community. I flew to San Diego because over the phone I had been saying things to a friend of mine and he was jumping out of his socks trying to get me to say these things out loud. So I basically connected the dots and I said “Based on all the ways that God has worked in my life and what He did in Promise Keepers and what not here’s what I believe God is saying He wants to do.” And I explained in the room in San Diego there was 16 guys, 2 were Messianic Rabbi’s. To others were Messianic Jews and all the others were men but it was ethnically diverse. When I shared with them and I connected the dots I’m telling you the room just took on a profound aura. And it was obvious that these guys every one of them felt like what I was saying they were validating that you got to pursue this.
Sid: I can’t wait, what were you saying?
Coach: Well, I got to tell you one more football story so that you’ll understand. I was praying in July one year. I was in the book of Isaiah and I came across I know you know this but whenever the word of God is spoken, read, or heard and the Spirit of God takes the word of God and strikes fire that’s where there’s change. So with that in mind I would read the Bible through every year; some in the Old Testament, some in the New Testament on the program that I was on. And this particular day in July in the book of Isaiah I read Isaiah 11:11 “And the Lord will return a second time to recover the remnant of His people.” When I read that it just jumped off the Bible at me; I’m telling you that it just lit up my heart and so I stayed there; I mediated on it. Well, what happened was the Lord… we had the year before had an extraordinary season and I in my own football way I was asking God, “God are You saying You’re going to do it again a second time what You did last year with our football team? Now that’s not what the verse was saying.
Coach: But that’s what I was asking him. And the Lord affirmed that He was going to do again what He had did the year before. Well at the time that I’m reading this I said, it was in July but actually I was wrong it was in September. Our team was 1 – l and 1. We had won 1 game; we had lost 1 game and we had tied 1 game. We were ranked 20th in the nation. And the Lord showed me that your final season record will be Isaiah 11:11, meaning 11 – 1 and 1. The record was 1– 1 and 1, our final record would be 11– 1– 1. Sid as God as my witness I gathered these guys together that had been a part of the golden season and I said to them “You’re not going to believe this, but God showed me that here’s our final season record.” So sure enough we win the next 10 games; we gain a share of the national championship. You know when God tell you that He’s going to do something before He does it you don’t get any credit for it.
Sid: Of course.
Coach: And so we’re now in the waiting room connecting those dots; remembering how God supernaturally orchestrated that and brought that to bear. Why did He do that; why did God start Promise Keepers; why did God providentially do all of these extraordinary things? We had one event in Atlanta where 40,000 Pastors came to the event. And for about 45 minutes on one of those days there was a euphoric spirit that came over the place that was unlike anything that most of us had ever experienced. And so why did God do all of the these things? Well, for me in connecting the dots it’s back to Isaiah 11:11 and the Lord will return a second time. In other words what God wants to do through the One New Man; what is in God’s heart for the harvest that He wants to bring in is so extraordinary. But I couldn’t had ever gotten there without going into the waiting room without just meditating and chewing on scripture. When I read your book “The Race to Save the World” where you explain the power of the One New Man; I couldn’t contain myself because it was so clear. You were helping me to see things that I was coming to understand but not fully grasping. Now I began to realize what God has been doing all along through all of these football experiences. What He did in football is that He gave me favor; unmerited favor. What He did was He allowed me to have favor across the Body of Christ. I’ve got to tell you with ethic men of all colors I have favor, I have favor with the Jewish believer, it’s unmerited favor. And what God has done He has prepared me to join guys that He’s raised up like you and being part of ushering in the One New Man. There is a revival coming; there’s a move of the Spirit of God coming and I just know it. And my role in it is to ask God to do it; my role in it is daily regularly petition Him; call upon Him. Jeremiah 33: 3 says “Call upon Me and I will show you great and unsearchable things which you do not know.” I believe that what’s in God’s heart is so extraordinary and so powerful and it’s going to be realized; it’s going to be evidenced as… picture this if you can get this picture in your heart you got it. Picture a Gentile Believer who’s emptied of self and free of the fear of man. And then picture a Jewish Believer who’s selfless and fearless. In other words both of them have fresh fire and they have real fear of God. That is the component that God’s going to use to explode this revival as we go after the Jew first and then the Gentile. Listen to what it says here, it’s talking about Noah in Hebrews 11:7 it says “By faith Noah being divinely warned of things not yet seen moved with Godly fear.” See he prepared an ark for the saving of his household by which he condemned the world and he became heir of the righteousness which is according to faith. He was able to see what was going to happen before it happened. What I believe that God has done with you; what I believe that He’s speaking into others is this One New Man. What’s in God’s heart for that is of such proportions; it’s going to bring in the peace that surpasses all human understanding. In other words, there’s a peace; you know who has that peace? The guy that’s empty of self and free of fear. Jesus said “Whoever would come after Me must deny himself, take up his cross daily and follow Me.” Look there’s two things there.
Sid: Coach we’re going to pick up right here on tomorrows broadcast.
SID: So Kynan Bridges had no chance. I mean, he was told that he’ll never get out of the second grade. What made the difference, Kynan?
KYNAN: You know, I had a praying mother, but I also had a mother who read the Bible. And one of the things that revolutionized my life was a simple, ancient, biblical principle called meditation. Let me explain what that means. The Bible says in Psalms, the first chapter, which is the first chapter I ever memorized in the Bible, it says, “Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, but stands in the way of sinners, nor sit in the seat of the scornful, but is delighted in God’s law,” His Torah. In in His law, as you meditate day and night, he’ll be like a tree planted by the riverbank. So I began to meditate in the Bible. And people don’t believe me when I tell them this, but God literally gave me supernatural intelligence. All of a sudden, through meditating the scriptures, that the Hebrew word, “haggah”, it means to speak out loud, it means to mutter, it means to moan. I would take my Bible, I would walk around my house and I would begin to quote the scriptures, speak them over myself, over my mind: “I’m a blessed man.” All of a sudden, I can understand math, I can understand English, I can understand reading and science. And God took me from being, spending more time in in-school suspension than in the classroom, having more behavioral problems than you would believe, to not only graduating high school, which they thought I would never do, to getting a scholarship to college. And now the thing, I’m actually working on toward my doctorate degree, and it’s amazing thing. That only happens through the power of God’s Word.
SID: You told me you used to go around wherever you would go with a Bible and speak it out loud. Did you really do that?
KYNAN: I was crazy, Sid. I had nothing to lose. I might as well speak God’s Word. Now this is so important to understand. God’s Word has creative power. Now what I didn’t know then as a teenager was that the favor of God is actually released through the words that we speak. The Bible says that, “a word fitly spoken are like apples of gold and pictures of silver”. In other words, when we speak God’s Word over our life, we set things in motion. We align our lives with God’s heavenly agenda. I call it heavenly alignment, and coincidently it begins in our mouth. And when we learn to say what Heaven is saying, our life begins to look how Heaven wants it to look. And that’s what happened to me.
SID: Now when you teach this, that’s what happened to Keenan. That’s wonderful for Keenan. But he said, according to the Word of God, that God is not a respecter of persons. What God did for Keenan, He wants to even do more for you. Tell me about the musician that heard your teaching and what happened to him.
KYNAN: So there was a guy, he was a musician by trade, but he wasn’t really doing well, Sid. Having problems in his family, problems in his relationships, couldn’t find work, nothing was happening. Well he got a hold of this teaching and he began to declare the promises of God over his life, over his family. And this is what happened. As he declared of promises of God over his family, all of a sudden, a record label calls him and says, “Where have you been?” He says, “I’ve been right here.” They said, “We heard some of your music. We want to offer you a record deal.” And guess what? “Tell us what you want. We’ll do it for you.” And here it is out of the blue something begins to happen in his life and we’re seeing this all the time. There was another lady that was a part of our ministry. Her son couldn’t find work. He couldn’t even get a job. He had a criminal record. And all of a sudden, she was so desperate, she says, “God, I have to do something.” She gets a hold of favor and she begins to declare favor over her life. And she says, in my family, she grabbed her husband’s and her son’s hand, and they prayed in the living room, she says, “We are blessed with Abraham. Abraham was our father and we are the children of Abraham.” Guess what happens?
KYNAN: The same day, the son gets a job for the first time in months. He passes a background check supernaturally. The court case he had about six months later, the judge looks at him in the courtroom and he says, “Something different about you.” He says, “Are you tired of seeing me, son?” He says, “Yeah.” And the judge throws out his case. Had no jail time at all. And that’s the power of the favor of God.
SID: Tell me, you know what it’s like to walk in favor and you know what it’s like to walk when you just got married.
KYNAN: Oh my goodness.
SID: Briefly, what happened?
KYNAN: So we’re coming back from the honeymoon. We’re smiling, our faces are shining. And we get home and I found out I lost my job. And I wish that was a temporary thing, but it actually got from bad to worse. We ended up losing the place we were living in. We lost our car and now we’re living in this little apartment, no doors. And I’m saying, God, there has to be more than this. I’m frustrated. And all of a sudden, God begins to deal with my heart and He spoke to me almost in an audible voice out of Jeremiah 29:11. I’m walking outside, I’m looking at the stars. He says, “I know the plans I have for you, plans of good and not of evil.” I’m saying, “God, but this is pretty evil to me.” God says, “No, I know the plans I have for you, plans to prosper you.” And guess what God did, Sid?
KYNAN: And I think he meant this for someone else. He started telling me to give. I’m thinking, maybe that’s for my neighbor.
SID: I’ll tell you what. Hold that thought. But when we come back I’m going to have Kynan tell you what happened to him, but even more important, I’m going to have him pray a supernatural proclamation over you that will rattle every cell in your body and you are going to start your walk into God’s supernatural, not natural, not charisma, supernatural favor when we get back.
Sid: My guest by way of telephone is Debra Alderman; I’m speaking to her at her office Stafford, TX a suburb of Houston, Texas. I’m interviewing her on a visitation that she had from the Lord in which He equipped her literally to a ban overnight soul winner. She has written a book called “You Can Be an Overnight Soul Winner” which pacts an anointing; a transferable anointing. And remember the word of God says “He who wins souls is wise.” Debra you said something a little earlier in the week that sparked a major interest on my part; you talked about such a key word compassion. Now when you were in West Africa that’s when this really broke on you; tell me about that.
Debra: Well, the first time I went to Africa Sid I didn’t really realize that when I was there in Africa that Jesus was really changing my life. And whenever I came back home after I returned home from Africa I just kept myself locked up in my house for 24 hours. Because I was just weeping uncontrollably because the African people had such an impact on my life. Because they love Jesus so much; they’re so on fire for God and the very first time that I left my house and went to a Wal-Mart Store a young man ended up having his life totally touched and transformed because of that fresh anointing that God had placed on my life on foreign soil.
Sid: And now we haven’t said this all week but it would be helpful; I’m going to do a little role playing. I’m unsaved and the Holy Spirit has just told you to walk up to me what would you say?
Debra: Normally I would just come up and say “You know, you may not understand this but I just want you to know how special you are today and how much Jesus Christ loves you.”
Sid: Well, thank you goodbye.
Debra: (Laughing) And I would say “You have a good day.”
Sid: “Oh, you wouldn’t run after me?”
Debra: Most of the time I don’t because the way that I pray Sid is I asked God to put hungry sinners in my pathway.
Sid: How often does this happen?
Debra: It happens almost on a daily basis.
Sid: Now could this happen for everyone that’s listening to us right now that knows the Lord?
Debra: Absolutely and you know Sid the most encouraging story in the entire Bible to me is in John Chapter 4 the woman at the well. And if a woman who had 5 husbands who was living with a man that she was not married to could have her life so changed by one touch from Jesus that she went and called the whole city to turn out Samaria and to hear Jesus. And the Bible says that many believed on Him that day. If God could change the woman at the well then God can change any of us at any time Sid and God can use a normal person to be a soul winner.
Sid: Now I don’t want to go in much detail on this but part of soul winning as I understand the Bible is signs and wonders to grab attention. Do you have sign and wonders and if so what?
Debra: Oh, absolutely and every believer should have signs and wonders.
Sid: I mean that was the norm for the first believers but somehow with the seeker sensitive mentality and the entertainment sport mentality we’ve kind of lost the supernatural of God.
Debra: Well, that is so true and but I just believe Sid that God is wanting every believer to you know get back to the Bible and just I’m reminded that there is so many things I could share but just one quick thing. A teenager in a Midwestern state came to one of our retreats and said “She’d been diagnosed with AIDS.” We prayed and we believed God for a miracle and a year later I saw that same girl and she was absolutely had no trace or the HIV or the AIDS disease in her bloodstream. And so that is a testimony; miracles are a testimony. We see Jesus opening up deaf ears; opening up blind eyes. I mean God is a miracle working God.
Sid: Now one of the keys in your book when you talk about is having your own personal intimacy with God.
Debra: That’s it.
Sid: What’s the best advice you could give us to have this intimacy?
Debra: The best advice that I can give Sid is for every single believer to spend time with God every day.
Sid: When someone spends time give some suggestions; what do you do?
Debra: Well what you do is you can buy all types of devotions that you can read a scripture a day; that’s a great start especially for a new believer. And read your Bible and just pray. And praying is talking directly to God just like you were sitting in a room talking with your best friend. And that is what I started out doing when I first got saved. That is what I continue to do today; you know if you’re a Mom with small children God knows where you’re at maybe you only have 2 or 3 minutes to spend with God. If you’re a single living by yourself you may have more time than that.
Sid: Debra the anointing of God is starting to really increase right now; I want you to pray what you receive from the Messiah will be freely given to those that are hungering and thirsting to fulfill their destiny. And if God moves you into words of knowledge of healing wonderful. And or anything else He wants you to pray.
Debra: Father right now in Jesus Name Father I want to thank You for every man, every woman; every child; every teenager that desires to win souls for Your kingdom. And Father today I thank You for a special anointing of the special Holy Spirit that will come upon their lives. And Father, I thank You for Divine appointments that they’ll have in their schools, that they’ll have in their neighborhoods; at the grocery stores, at the gas stations; on their jobs. Father everywhere where they go I thank You that they will literally have Divine appointments and that they will be bold to share the gospel to share the love of Jesus with every single person that they come into contact with. And Father I thank You today that I take authority over spirit of fear. I just thank You my Father that they’ll be no fear operating in their lives but they’ll operate in the boldness of Jesus. They’ll operate in the boldness of the Holy Spirit witnessing and winning souls across the land. And Father we’re thankful for that today in Jesus Name. And right now I just want to speak to those of you that possibly you have a broken-heart, possibly the enemy the devil has lied to you saying that your life has no purpose; that your life has no meaning you’ll never be used by God in a big way. Well right now in the Name of Jesus I just take authority over all of those lies. And I say “You will step into your purpose; you will step into your God dream; you will step into your God destiny; God is raising you up your life has great purpose; great value; great meaning and God wants to use you today to win souls to pray your entire family into the kingdom of God.” Right now in Jesus Name I just thank You my Father that wives are seeing their husbands saved, husbands are seeing their wives saved. I thank You My Father that Your seeing their children on fire; they’re seeing their parents saved; their grandparents saved. And Father I thank You that there’s no one to hard or too difficult for your to turn around and turn into the Kingdom of God. And Father we give You the glory for that today. And Father I thank You that every person can be an overnight soul winner. And that Father that You are using us and anointing every single one of us to reach out and to touch that we come into contact with. And Father I thank You that we are winning souls for Your glory in Jesus Name.
Sid: Debra, what would you say to the one listening to us right now that is so crushed that they’re contemplating suicide.
Debra: I would say to you today that don’t you dare do it your life has value; your life has purpose. And I want to say to you today I’ve been in your shoes; I’ve nearly commited suicide when I was a 15 year old teenager over some goofy boy that broke off a relationship with me. And it doesn’t matter how dark things may look right now Jesus loves you and He can turn this situation around. There is hope for your life; God wants to turn this around. In fact he wants to spare your life and He wants to use you to touch other people’s lives and to impact them in such a way that they’ll not commit suicide that they’ll grab a hold of that anointing that God’s placed on your life and that you’ll be able to share your experience and help someone else out with that.
Sid: Debra, very briefly July of ’92 when Jesus walked into your living room what did He say to you?
Debra: He said “Debra, I called you to be a soul winner and from this day forward the anointing that I’ve placed on your life is about to intensify.” And Sid that’s exactly what God has done for me and what God wants to do for every person who so desires the anointing to win souls.
Sid: What kind of feedback in reference to that are you getting from your book “You Can be an Overnight Soul Winner” as far as the anointing they receive that’s transferable?
Debra: I’ve had people say “I’ve read the book and as soon as I’ve closed the book I’ve got down down on my face before God; I just begin to cry out before the Lord.” I’ve had people say to me Sid I could not stop weeping; I’ve left my home that day I immediately began to witness to people;Jesus immediately began to use me to win souls like never before.” So I know Sid that this anointing is transferable just like I read Aimee Semple McPherson’s book my life was changed. You can read “You Can be An Overnight Soul Winner” that their lives can be changed as well.
Sid: Debra, thank you so much for being my guest. Mishpochah I want you take Debra home with you.
Sid: My guest Alice Crisswell is red hot for the Messiah. She says that 90% of the non-believers that come into her shop for prayer. Because she has a sign in her shop come in if you want us to pray for you; the get healed. That is normal; that is normal as far as the Bible is concerned and it’s contagious it’s going to rub off on you. Aliss you told me that you wanted to tell me a story about a wood pecker; what is that story.
Aliss: (Laughing) It’s a great story it’s got…it’s good for teaching you know; it has to do with deliverance. But one of those you know we say that 90% of people that don’t know Jesus are getting healed immediately. But also we’re seeing so many people that know Jesus they get healed too. But one of the keys to that to the people that know Jesus getting healed is the fact that a lot of…we’ve discovered that a lot of sicknesses are caused by demons. And often I’ll be talking to somebody whose been prayed for so many times that nothing’s happened. And once that they realize that it’s just an evil spirit causing the problem and the evil spirit leaves they get completely healed instantly. So I’ll tell you this story that happens that something that happened to me. A friend of mine came around for coffee and we were chatting away and we both got up at the same time and instantly we both had the same symptoms. So we both had a really bad headache at the same time instantly. Both of us had blurred vision our ears went deaf and we felt really dizzy and disorientated but if was just me I thought I would have thought that I was coming down with a virus and had gotten under something. But actually because we both had the same thing we thought that it was an evil spirit that’s causing it. And so we prayed together and we told the evil spirit to leave. All the symptoms left apart from we both had a headache still. Now after awhile she went home and I was just sitting there and I was thinking “This headache; this is definitely an evil spirit and it’s still not completely gone.” So I said “In the Name of Jesus this evil spirit that is causing this headache you leave now!” And as soon as I said that there was a loud bang and what happened was I was standing in my living room near the french windows and outside in the garden there was a woodpecker flying towards our house; it was about to go over our house. And woodpeckers are very unusual but as soon as I told the evil spirit to leave me; you know demons like to be in a body and the nearest body to me was this woodpecker. So the evil spirit must have entered the woodpecker and it crushed it’s head on the upstairs window and fell to the ground completely dead outside the french windows a few feet from where I was standing.
Sid: That reminds me in the Bible that’s when Jesus said that the demons could go into the pigs and then the pigs ran over the cliff and committed suicide.
Aliss: That’s right so they like to be in a body either an animal or a bird. So this bird was completely dead, it’s neck looked broken it was on it’s back with it’s legs in the air and it’s neck was twisted. And I thought “Oh no I’ve killed the woodpecker.”
Aliss: My headache had completely gone; I knew that it was a demon. I thought that it must be a spirit of death or some kind of curse to deal with death that entered this bird and killed it. And I thought you know there’s not much teaching on how to raise the dead. And so I was thinking do I need to lay hands on it or do I just speak to it and it must have been 5 or 10 minutes looking at this bird thinking “I don’t want to touch it but you know. So I just spoke out very clearly and I said “In the Name of Jesus I command this demon, the spirit of death leave the bird now!” And as soon as I said it the bird turned around; it sat up and opened it’s eyes and it just looked at me and it was sitting there for about I don’t know for about 5 or 10 minutes. And I thought “Wouldn’t it be ironic if a cat came around the corner and just scooped up.” But I thought that was my first resurrection; and it was like….
Sid: (Laughing) but you know even before you went on the air the Holy Spirit is almost like bursting through me. I believe that God wants you to pray for people; there are some desperate situations.
Sid: And people have had; everyone in town lay hands on them and pray for them and they’re still not healed. Would you pray for those people?
Aliss: First of all I’m going to speak to the people; I want to pray for the people if you’ve got any symptoms that you don’t know where the symptoms are coming from. It might be something that I’ve described already today or any of these shows this week. Or it might be something like a migraine or stroke symptoms a lot of these are caused by evil spirits. So just put your hands on your head or put your hand across the part of the body. In fact I’m going to pray for anybody who needs healing at all; just put your hands on the part of the body that needs healing or put it on your head. But if there is a demon first of all it’s good if you just pray out and just repeat after me just say Father God.
Sid: Father God.
Aliss: Please will you for give me.
Sid: Please will you for give me.
Aliss: For allowing this evil spirit a place in my life.
Sid: For allowing this evil spirit a place in my life.
Aliss: And I renounce every evil spirit that is affecting me.
Sid: And I renounce every evil spirit that is affecting me.
Aliss: And I command it to leave me now.
Sid: And I command it to leave me now in Jesus Name.
Aliss: In Jesus Name. And just if you want to breath in the Holy Spirit and I’ll tell the evil spirit to leave so breath in the Holy Spirit and on the count of three every evil spirit has got to leave now; 1, 2, 3 breathe it out now. In Jesus Name. And I just release the healing power of Jesus. So breathe in the healing power of Jesus and just speak to the part of your body that’s been affected and tell it to be healed. Tell every disease to leave your body now; every pain to leave your body; I command it to go in the Name of Jesus. Every illness has to go; every infirmity has to go. I release creative miracles in the Name of Jesus, brand new body parts come now. I command every cancerous cell to leave these bodies in Jesus Name; become completely healed through the Mighty Name of Jesus. Just receive that healing into your body; you can receive it now; He’s done it all He’s paid the price you can just have it just be healed. And then test out that part of your body; you should find that the symptoms are leaving right now. Just start testing things out. Thank You Jesus. Now there is somebody that’s listening who has been bitten by a dog; I don’t know when this happened but you had some kind of serious injury because you were bitten by a dog. So I release healing into your body now in Jesus Name. And I also I just go the name Jack; and I don’t know if that’s connected, maybe the name of the dog; maybe the person’s name is Jack or maybe it’s a Jack Russel that bit you I don’t know. But we just speak complete healing for that person; anybody whose been injured be healed now in Jesus Name. I also I’m seeing somebody that’s playing a mandolin which is quite an unusual instrument and I don’t know if you’re playing it right now or if you just put it down but you need healing in your body. And just be healed now in Jesus Name. And I also declare that you have a much needed breakthrough in another situation in your life; and I’m declaring that that breakthrough is coming now in the Name of Jesus. Thank You Father.
Sid: And I believe that God’s given someone a new hip right now in Jesus Name. That’s a new hip you’re getting; you may have already have a metal hip; a hip replacement. But it’s becoming bone right now in Jesus Name. Now just out of curiosity Aliss when you go about your business; you’re in a supermarket or something are the gifts as active as it is in our Cafe?
Aliss: Oh yes.
Sid: Tell me about that man with the hearing aids at the supermarket.
Aliss: Oh well, I was doing my shopping in a different supermarket actually than the last one. And I was just going through down with my groceries and first of all I saw a lady coming towards me and she had a broken foot and it was a big thing; it was a big boot on her foot; obviously broken. She had lots of children and groceries and sticks and she was obviously in a lot of pain so I approached her and I was very scared to approach her but I said “Excuse me, may I pray for you and Jesus will heal your foot.” Well she says, oh I don’t have time and she sort of hobbled or half hobbled half ran away as fast as she could. And I was feeling so down; I thought I hope nobody saw that I was feeling rejected. And then this elderly gentleman walks up to me and he says “Excuse me,” he says “I love your hair.” And I said “Thank you.” And I was thinking isn’t God good He sends somebody to cheer me up. But I noticed that this gentleman had 2 hearing aids in his ears. And so I said “Oh, can I pray for your ears?” Well, he was so deaf he couldn’t even hear me with his hearing aid turned up full. And so I said “Never mind I’m going to to for it and so I put my hands on his ears and I said “Be healed in the Name of Jesus ears be opened now.” And as soon as I said it I mean he didn’t know what was going on but he had all of this whistling going on in his ears. He pulled his hearing aids out and he realizes that he can hear every single word that I’m saying. And then I notice that he’s got a stick. So he told me that…
Sid: Like a walking stick.
Aliss: A walking stick, and he said “He couldn’t walk properly” and all he had was like muscle that was wasted in his leg. And so I said “Will you put your hand where the problem is and I’ll put my hand on top of your hand.” So I’m in the supermarket and with my hand on this man’s leg (Laughing) and who would come around the corner but his wife.” She says “What’s going on, whose that?”
Aliss: And I said “Oh, I’m a Christian Minister and I was trying to look as much as a Christian Minister as I possibly could. So I grabbed his stick and I said “Walk in the Name of Jesus.” Well, he starts running up and down the supermarket aisle. His wife realizes that he can hear every word that he’s saying and so they start crying and hugging and I’m joining in. And it was just incredible and they said that they already knew Jesus; but they said that “They didn’t know that He stilled healed today.”
Sid: I’ll tell you right now that there are people listening to us right now that want that outrageous faith that you have.
SID: Hello. Welcome. Welcome to my world where it’s naturally supernatural. You know, there are professional singers and then there are psalmists that are anointed by God. Now when a professional singer sings, sometimes they can even break a glass. When an anointed psalmist sings, Stage 4 cancer cannot stand in their presence. You’re about ready to hear someone that is an anointed psalmist and God is the one that called her. Now Judy was the youngest of 12 children. And Judy it’s hard for me to believe you were shy. And she was so shy until age 12 when the presence of God came on her in such a profound way, she was filled with the Holy Spirit. I want to take you back to that day, Judy. Tell me what was going on inside of you, what was happening.
JUDY: When the Holy Spirit came on me that night, on Sunday night, I remember my mom was with me, and he literally took over my body, Sid. I remember being just overwhelmed with the presence and the joy of the Holy Spirit. It was something that was almost like an out of body experience. I’ve never experienced anything like that. And of course, I was 12 years old. But I remember people picking me up, putting me in a car, taking me home.
SID: Why did they have to pick you up?
JUDY: I couldn’t walk.
SID: That’s a good reason. You couldn’t walk.
JUDY: I couldn’t walk, I couldn’t talk.
SID: They had to pick you up. Okay.
JUDY: I couldn’t walk. I couldn’t do anything. I was just like, just so limp. And so they picked me up. They put me to bed. The next three days I could not talk in anything except the language of the Holy Spirit. Barely eat, just sleep. It was like I was overwhelmed with the presence of God as a 12-year-old. I remember even my parents and my family talking about what is going on here, what’s happening. But my mom had had the same experience when she received the baptism of the Holy Spirit. For three days, she spoke in tongues and could not even communicate with my dad. Of course, me being the baby, she said every time that I would cry, I wouldn’t say, “wah, wah!” I’d say, “Hallelujah! Hallelujah!”
SID: My goodness. That’s my kind of baby. But let me tell you what happened. Fast forward. God speaks to Judy audibly and tells her to study voice. And she starts singing with a group and then God called her to sing by herself. Do you remember the first time you did your first solo? What was that like?
JUDY: I will never forget it. It was my very first service. I was in the service and I was introduced. And when I was introduced, I came up and I would begin to do what I would naturally do, and that is to sing. When I began to sing the power of God came into that room. It was the very first song. People started running to the altar and I just said, “If you have a need in your heart, just come on down. God is moving.” There was one young lady that came down. She fell down right at the foot of the altar where I was standing. There was no pulpit at the time because I was going to speak later. When she fell down, the power of God was moving. I mean, people were just worshiping. People were filling the altar. All of a sudden, this young girl rose up and her face began to, I mean, just began to contort. I mean, it was just like I could see demonic spirits come over her. And then all of a sudden she starts screaming at me and I can see the demonic. And she’s like, “I’m going to kill you, Judy Jacobs!” So she starts to—
SID: Now wait a second. How would you like to be singing your first solo and a girl comes up and says, “I’m going to kill you.” I mean, that’s not the way Hollywood does it.
JUDY: No. And then the first thing I thought about is where is the back door. Where is the back door. And so she’s trying to get to my feet. There’s three ushers that are holding this young girl back. She looked like she weighed maybe a hundred pounds. And so now she can’t get to me. So now she’s beginning to spit at me. And I thought—
SID: From bad to worse.
JUDY: Yes. And I’m up on the stage and I’m dodging. I’m trying to dodge this girl. And then all of a sudden, Sid, in my mind, in the natural, my mind says, turn the service over to the pastor. Go to the back of the choir and just start to pray. The devil says, “This is too big. You can’t do this. Just give in. Let the pastor take care of this. This is too hard for you to handle.” And then I heard the Holy Spirit say, “No. You were created for this. You were anointed to do this. You take authority over this spirit in the name of Jesus.” So something came up the back of my legs, came up my back. My shoulders went back. My head went up and I said, “I want the church to stand up and we’re going to begin to pray in the spirit.” The church began to pray in the spirit. And I walked off that stage and I went down to where that was young girl, and I said, “Baby, I’m not talking to you.” I began to talk to her. I said, “I’m not talking to you, but I’m talking to that spirit, demonic spirit that is in you and I tell you who I am. I am the anointed child of God. I’ve been called. I’ve been picked out. I’ve been chosen and I command you in the name of Jesus, come out of her!” Her body went limp, just went limp. I was able to lead her to Jesus. Several minutes later, she confessed to me that she had been involved in rock and roll, rock and roll music, and she had been involved in the occult. But that was my first experience being involved in taking authority in the name of the Lord.
SID: But you know what? It gets stronger and stronger. The Bible says, we go from glory to glory. If you’re standing still, you’re going backwards. You’re deceived. You go from glory to glory. So one of my favorite songs by Judy Jacobs is “Days of Elijah.” Do you like that song? And the first time she sang it was at a Benny Hinn campaign. What happened?
JUDY: The power of God came into that room. Pastor Benny had to be convinced for me to sing the song because he didn’t know the song. So I had never sang the song. I took my words up, put them on the pulpit because I just recorded it. But it wasn’t even released yet. But when I got up to sing, the track began, boom, I started singing. The place comes to their feet. The Glory of God begins. And I guess I sang that song that night eight or ten times in one night.
SID: You know what, Judy? We’re going to sing that song in a little bit and the same thing is going to happen here. You want it to happen? You want that song here? I want that song. We’ll be right back.
