SID: Hello. Sid Roth here. Welcome. Welcome to my world where it’s naturally supernatural. I have a friend that is a renowned prophet that is now in Heaven, and this is what I heard him say. A billion souls are going to come to the Lord. It won’t be when I’m here, but I’ll see it from Heaven and there will be millions, especially young people, that will need deliverance. Why will they need deliverance? It’s going to be because so many forbidden doors have been opened because of sin and especially sexual sin, pornography, so many open doors that need to be closed. And the average pastor isn’t even equipped to handle these people that are going to need these things. But my guest had a revelation from God on how to do it and it’s so simple. It’s unbelievably simple and you can do it for yourself, and you can do it for the thousands, and I say thousands that are going to be lined up at your door. You know, we humans are such complex people and you read the Bible. However, sometimes it’s not working the way the simple truth says. So if there’s nothing wrong with God it gives us only one other person to ask a question about. And that’s why so many believers get stuck and never go forward with God because they’ve got these doors that are closed over problems that are never opened, and they go five years, ten years, 20 years. Give me an example of some of the areas that might be symptomatic of problems.
DENNIS: Trauma, people, low grade anxiety where they feel like I know I’m a spirit-filled believer. I’ve moved in the gifts of the Spirit, but I feel anxious most of the time. There’s a serious door that needs to be shut there because anxiety is not walking with the Lord. There’s also apprehension about making decisions. There’s pet peeves even, believe it or not, can be an indication of a door that needs shut, over-reaction to mild stimulation. Something goes wrong and you just blow up.
SID: You know, a statement you made that I know is so true, Dennis, is 80 percent of the people, if they can just close those doors, if they just close it they don’t have to do the classic I command this demon to leave. The demons don’t want to stay. They just leave on their own, 80 percent.
DENNIS: Eighty percent. When we taught people how to close the doors, that was the first indication. All of a sudden, and in some cases they didn’t even know it was demonic, but they would say, “I feel lighter, something lifted, wow, that was great ministry. I don’t understand it, but I know I’m better,” and they will see the residual fruit of freedom after the ministry session. That’s the significance of closing a door.
SID: Okay. How did you first learn, because it’s so simple. But you know what, Jesus said you have to become like a little child to enter the Kingdom of Heaven. So if it’s not simple, it’s not God.
DENNIS: Well I was a baby Christian with a dramatic baptism in the Holy Spirit. They wanted to put me on TV and radio and just talk about my baptism in the Holy Spirit. Well I got my first opportunity to speak to a small group. And they said, “Dennis, just share your testimony.” I walked up there knowing that I was called to preach. I knew that from the time that I was saved that that was my calling. And I looked out and there probably weren’t any more than 40 people, and I felt ashamed, had what they would probably call stage fright, and I actually walked off the stage, and the worship leader had to do her testimony because they didn’t know what to do now that Dennis walked off.
SID: They had a peace, such a stronghold. So what did you do about it?
DENNIS: I went home.
SID: You know what a lot of people do? They’ll just never speak again and miss their destiny.
DENNIS: Exactly. I went home and I said, I’m just a young Christian, maybe six months old in the Lord, eight months old. I knelt down by the side of a couch and I said, “God, what is wrong with me? If I’m called to preach I can’t do that. What just happened to me, I don’t understand.” And I closed my eyes and the first thing I saw in my mind’s eye, I saw myself when I was a nine-year-old bed-wetter and I pictured myself with clenched fists, hating myself, and I was enough of a Christian to know, gee, you don’t hate people, you certainly aren’t allowed to hate yourself. And I saw that I received down in my belly, down in the gut, I received forgiveness for self-hatred and instantly there was in my mind’s eye and simultaneously what was going on in my mind’s eye, I felt a lifting and it was in my mind’s eye a slimy stocking mask. I don’t know how else to explain it, like a burglar would wear in a stick-up, and it was a slimy stocking mask, and its name was “Shame”, and it was lifting off of me. And while I was watching it lift off me in my mind’s eye I felt the lightness of it. And the shame literally had the open door of self-hatred in my life. I didn’t know it was there. That was something that I had as a kid.
SID: When it was gone, how did you change?
DENNIS: Oh this is remarkable. From walking off the stage, would you know God had orchestrated so that the very next day they said, “Dennis, we want you to speak in front of the whole church your testimony.” And I’m going, haven’t you heard? I have a track record here. But anyway, I walked up there and I stood by a pulpit and it was, I felt like a cowboy in a saddle. It was like this where I belong. I like me, but it was a God confidence.
SID: Okay. You, too, had equipped literally thousands of people to be free from insomnia, so many different areas. And it’s so simple and so easy. As a matter of fact, Dr. Jennifer Clark actually got physically healed when she learned how to close these doors. I want to find out about it. Be right back.
