Sid: I’ve been speaking all of this week with Dave Roberson Senior Pastor of Family Prayer Center in Tulsa, Oklahoma. He has been teaching on the basics of fasting that’s been revolutionizing people all over the world. On yesterday’s broadcast we’ve were talking about a simple fisherman. Dave and he was locate where the Amazon?
Dave: Yes Sid I believe the Amazon State along the Amazon River.
Sid: Before we even go to him to do this teaching why do you need to get these cassettes out to as many people as possible?
Dave: Sid in my walk with God as I discovered praying in tongues as a revelation gift and my life began to increase and the anointing on it. Then I found out there was ceilings of flesh that were destroyed through fasting and a combination of prayer and fasting a Jesus said caused devils to come out and destroy unbelief and all of these kinds of things. Well it builds with indifference and complacency and causes, you know that love Jesus’s is talking about which is compassion. And it does away with that old flesh that competition spirit. You know who’s got….who’s doing a greater work who’s more anointed who has more people. See those things of the flesh that if Jesus taught through prophecy in Isaiah 58 that fasting you deal your bread to the hungry and that you hide not yourself from your own flesh that whatever it is that’s in me that just didn’t care the day that you decide to fast is the day that you’re not going to hide anymore from whatever is in you that just doesn’t care. Well through fasting the Lord is able to destroy indifference and complacency and build compassion in me. And I lost that old competition spirit now there’s a principal the word has called the sower overtakes the reaper. I’ve been in ministry 27 years and it was a fisherman that fisherman along the Amazon and the Amazon State in Brazil I had the privilege of teaching him for 5 years. I would go for twice a year to Brazil and teach them 6 hours a day for a week a gathering of preachers. So this particular one I was able to sow 27 years of my life making of mistakes finding the right path keeping, praying, edifying him growing in fasting. And I was able to sow into his life in 5 years what took me 27 to produce. So now this fisherman whose only 5 years old in the teaching that got the tapes that I taught, in Portuguese of course translated, in 5 years Sid what’s taken me 27 he’s overtaking my harvest in 5 years. And he’s such a simple fisherman that he just throws his net and fishes. But now they come in by the groves and lay their sick at his feet and he pays for them and there’s miracles and people are being swept into the kingdom of God.
Sid: Could he have just been one of those warehouse pastors that they talk about they’re just warehouse Christians that though they stay saved so they can go to heaven could he just have been one of those warehouse pastors that had maybe 50 maybe a 100 people in his church if he hadn’t moved into breaking the ceiling in his life?
Dave: Sid he could. No I’ve blazed a trail through most of the countries through America preached in so many churches like that you know. And if the devil will come sometimes and give the pastor such a beating that he’ll begin to gravitate towards the flesh and finally create a comfort zone for people and kind of babysit them through their life and doesn’t cause any waves there kind of a user friendly church you know just to keep them all happy in the flesh and babysit them until they go to heaven. Thank God for His mercy and grace you know for those that are saved that He is able to take to heaven. But I can tell you this Sid especially in that fasting series we’ve been talking about, that if you are caught in a trap like and you’re hungry to feed your spirit and you want to know how to break out of it. You know this is what’s taking me 27 years to learn and I’m in prime now I rejoice when somebody shows me their destiny when in a short time they take the harvest. I just rejoice absolutely and to answer your question yes this pastor Sid he could have stayed there but because he was hungry I believe that God had him cross our path because he wanted more just like that everyone that’s listening to the broadcast is crossing our path Sid because they’re hungry.
Sid: What about someone that’s been working most of their life that’s been a believer going to church know that there’s something more but has never got beyond the milk stage. And most of his life is almost over is it too late for that person?
Dave: You know I asked God that question and He answered me back and said “Are they still breathing?” (Laughing) And I said “Yes.” And then He said “Then there is hope.” As you get into this you start walking in the Spirit like we’ve been teaching it takes a very short time Sid to redeem what you’ve lost and begin to walk in His power. In fact He’s had me tell several people you know up in their 60’s some in their 70’s even that if they get into this and some of them have that they can do more in the few years that’s left than all of the years that they’ve thrown away. Yes there’s great hope, great great hope.
Sid: Dave in your own ministry.
Dave: Yes Sir.
Sid: As a result of learning how to move in the Spirit and not be held to those ceiling levels by the flesh have you’ve seen an increase of the miraculous?
Dave: (Laughing) Oh yes the meeting that I just had not long ago in India had half a million people present and Sid one last prayer 5,000 peoples teeth was filled with gold at the moment of prayer. Not counting the blind and the lame that walked that night and 200,000 people were born again because when the teeth started filling up with gold and silver where big rotten cavities were seconds before. Many of them began to scream and so these lost people began to gather around them and look into their mouths and they could see what was happening. And so it resulted in 200,000 being born again.
Sid: If that…if you have reports like this outside of the United States are you seeing anything in the United States as far as the miraculous?
Dave: (Laughing) Just 6 months ago in Palm Springs I was there with Norvel Hayes and Tim Story and there was a doctor there too Dr. Shaw. And a woman’s teeth was filled with silver and gold just right there on the spot and so Brother Norvel said “Let me see it” and he went over and looked into their mouth and Tim Story said “Let me see it.” And he ran over and looked and then the doctor examined her. And then we went on to Seattle and we went on television there and a woman’s teeth were filled and they zoomed in on her with the camera and not only those kind of miracles. And the last meeting I had last week 30 or 40 people’s eyes were healed Sid just 1 move of the Spirit.
Sid: Dave right at this moment would you pray for miracles for our listeners?
Dave: Oh yes, heavenly Father everyone that is hearing this right now any kind of pain that’s in their body I take absolute authority over it now. And Jesus that same life that’s in You I think that it’s in me and it’s in them and Father every pain causing disease I speak to it in the name of Jesus to be healed. And Father any hurts, any inner healing where people’s emotions have been destroyed I thank You for the flood gates opening of your grace and mercy and healings. I speak peace Father and I command all torment to leave. Move by the power of Your Holy Spirit for it. I give You all the praise, the honor and the glory be healed in Jesus name.
Sid: And Dave was praying I heard cancer I command in the name of Jesus spirits of cancer to cease and desist there work and to get off of God’s people now in Yeshua’s name. I just feel it lifting off of people right now. And would you pray for gold teeth?
Dave: Oh yes, Father thank You for the workings of absolute miracles. Every rotten cavity, every crooked teeth, every tender nerve, every gum, every TMJ Jaw in Jesus mighty name I speak a creative miracle. I command those teeth to be filled with silver and gold to be restored within them. All gum diseases to be healed and all bone related problems in Jesus mighty name.
