CALEB: Does it not occur to you that there are two people living in this house and both of them need to eat?
FEMALE1: You know what, Caleb? If you would communicate with me, maybe I can have something for you. You care more about saving for your stupid gun and pleasing yourself than you ever did about me.
CALEB: Shut up! I’m sick of you! You disrespectful, ungrateful, selfish woman! How dare you say that to me! You constantly nag me and you blame the life out of me! I’m tired of it. If you can’t give me the respect I deserve, look at me, then what’s the point of this marriage!
FEMALE2: Make him respect you. If there’s one thing a man understands–
CALEB: It’s respect. That’s the issue. That’s the reason our marriage is failing. She shows me no respect at all. I don’t understand her. She’s emotional about everything. She’s easily offended and way too sensitive.
FEMALE1: [crying] He’s so insensitive. He doesn’t truly care how I feel. He doesn’t listen to me, even if I say it over and over, and over again.
CALEB: And then starts nagging me and saying I don’t listen to her or something like that. It drives me crazy. I feel like I’m going–
FEMALE1: Insane. You know, he doesn’t understand my needs. I feel like we are completely and totally–
CALEB: Incompatible. She’s probably whining to her friends making me sound like a criminal. I can see them all right now, crying and having some sort of group hug.
FEMALE2: It’s gonna be okay, sweetie. It’s gonna be all right.
FEMALE3: You’ll get through this.
FEMALE4: Whatever you need.
SID: Hello. Sid Roth here. Welcome to my world where it’s naturally supernatural. That was an excerpt from the movie, “Fireproofed”. Did you recognize something there? I believe there is supernatural help to miscommunicate. And there is also supernatural help to communicate, not just in marriages, in all of life. There is someone egging you on to divide relationships. And my guest, Craig Hill, has uncovered what I believe to be biblical supernatural keys for supernatural relationships. Now Craig, I find it fascinating and almost outrageous that one out of two marriages end up in divorce, and that’s true among those that are Christians and non-Christians alike. It shouldn’t happen with Christians.
CRAIG: No, that’s absolutely right. You would think that we would understand something, or people that have a relationship with God would access the supernatural power of God and would learn the things that would cause their marriages not to break up. But as you said, Sid, that frequently is not true. And many times without that understanding and that knowledge people live just like people who have no relationship with God and their marriages are destroyed as well.
SID: And the thing that’s so overwhelming to me is your marriage, I mean, I know your background. I know your wife’s background. And you went through seven years of turmoil until these keys were revealed to you. But I want to take you back to 1975. You’re a nice young pilot.
SID: And you ran into what almost cost you your life. Tell me about it.
CRAIG: That was true. I was flying for a living out of Grand Rapids, Michigan, flying the mail at night. And one night on our way back from Chicago across Lake Michigan back to Grand Rapids, the air traffic control called us and said. “It’s getting really foggy in Michigan. We suggest you turn back to Chicago.” Well being young and sort of arrogant, you know, the other pilot and I decided not to, and we decided, no, we can be beat the fog in. And to make a long story short, we made two instrument approaches at Grand Rapids and it was too foggy for us to land, and we saw runway, no lights, nothing. So we went to Lansing, shot two approaches there and missed them both again, no visibility there. And, you know, the thing that happened is the low fuel red lights came on in Grand Rapids and I knew we were in trouble.
SID: Now when you’re driving a car and that happens that’s bad. When you’re up in the air, oy vey.
CRAIG: That’s exactly right. So after Lansing, you know, we had used up a huge amount of fuel trying to make these instrument approaches. We were really low. We said, “What else is opened?” They said Detroit. So we blasted over to Detroit and we were the second to the last airplane to land with just minutes of fuel left. And so that was sort of a harrowing experience. I was praying all the way, you now, “Oh God save my life.”
SID: But with just minutes of fuel it could have gone the other way.
CRAIG: Well that’s exactly right, yeah. We could have ended up not making it and ended up running out of fuel.
SID: But briefly, explain what was going on in the invisible world.
CRAIG: In the invisible world what I found out about six or seven months later, Sid, was really an amazing thing. I met a young woman in Europe who had been at a mission school in Germany at the same that this event was taking place. Every morning their habit was to get up and in a small group pray, not just their shopping list of things they wanted to pray, but they would ask God, “What is on your heart today, Father?” And then they would pray those various things. One day the group, they had a list everyday of things that they felt like the Spirit of God was giving them, and one day one thing on the list was “airplane”. They didn’t know what to pray for exactly, so they began asking. And the group of them together got pieces like a puzzle. And one person said, “Well the airplane we’re to pray for is fast like you United, but it’s small.” Someone else said, “I see two people on board and that’s all, just the crew, and one is older, one is young. They’re wearing light blue jumpsuits, they’re flight suits, and they’re carrying the U.S. mail.” Somebody else said, “I see a map like the Great Lakes area of the United States.” And these people were in Germany when they were praying. And they said. “The problem is this airplane is having difficulty finding a place to land. We need to pray for the safety of the crew and a place to land.” So they had all these details. Well about in July of that year, I met this young woman on this team and I began to recognize that God was doing something between us and that she might end up being my wife. So as time progressed I was telling her all the harrowing stories and experiences of my life. I began to tell her this one. And as I shared these details she said, “We prayed for you.” I said, “What do you mean you prayed for me?” And she said, “Were you both wearing light blue one-piece flight suits?” I said, “Yeah.” She said, “Was the other pilot quite a bit older than you?” I said, “Yeah.” She said, “We prayed for you.” And she told me what was happening is that at the very time that we were having the problem at about four in the morning in Michigan, they were, at nine in the morning over in Germany, praying these prayers and releasing something in the supernatural. I believe, Sid, had my wife not prayed with that small group we well could have died.
SID: And of course, at that time she wasn’t his wife. But she had a prophetic word at that time. What did someone tell her?
CRAIG: There was another young woman in the group that came up to her after this prayer time and said to her, “Jan, you know that airplane we prayed for this morning? I believe that has something to do with you, maybe a relative or somebody you know. And Jan was thinking, “I don’t know anybody who flies. I don’t know who, well I have a cousin, you know, who’s on an aircraft carrier.”
SID: Of course it had something to do with her because they ended up getting married. She described exactly at the exact time she was praying for the man that would be her husband. You would think they would have a marriage made in heaven, but they had seven years of the type of turmoil that many of you have had. And it’s about time that you have supernatural help to have a marriage made in Heaven and relationships that are pleasing to God. You see, the Messiah said, “This is my commandment that you love one another.” And there’s someone trying to disrupt that so you can’t accomplish your destiny. Don’t go away. You’re going to find out some tremendous supernatural keys to supernatural relationships. Be right back.
