Sid: You’re not going to believe what I’m about ready to tell you. I met a man in Alexandria, Louisiana, Dr. David Remedios. He’s a vascular surgeon; so I got a bad report from my daughter. She needed heart surgery; we prayed and she actually had a dream and the Lord said to submit to the surgery. So she hasn’t done it yet and she’s about ready to have that surgery. So I had met Dr. Remedios in Louisiana and he told me that many times he’ll see what’s going on and God will show him how to perform surgery. Now this is my kind of doctor. My daughter’s about ready to have this heart surgery and I decided I would call him. Well as I’m talking to him I said that would you pray for my daughter? And I have on the line right now Dr. David Remedios. David do you remember what you said to me, if you don’t I remember?
David: Yes sir; I remember that; I saw a vision I saw that she was undergoing that surgery and that she was supposed to have the surgery; I believe that that was about it. And that God was doing some other things in her life at the same time if I’m not mistaken.
Sid: Very good memory; I’ll tell you you’re my kind of doctor. But you’re whole life really got tremendously transformed when one of the leaders of the revival from Argentina Claudo Freidzon, another Jewish man that’s red hot for Jesus, laid hands on you. How did your life change after he did that?
David: Well, there was an incredible increase in signs, wonders, miracles and a greater passion in my life. It literally took a different turn; it was as if God literally turned up the tiles several notches. And it’s been the most exciting walk I’ve had ever since; in ministry; with my family with my children. Even in my practice so it’s just so awesome.
Sid: Just out of curiosity did you have these like these… for instance when you were talking to me on the telephone did you see what you were describing or was it just an impression?
David: I literally saw what I was describing; I saw the inside of the heart; I saw the myocardium; the endocardium. I just saw it; that’s all I can say and I just felt “Lord what does this mean?” And the Lord just gave me what that meant and what was supposed to happen.
Sid: I am in awe of what’s supposed to happen in many different arenas, but one in particular which we’ll deal with people where their organs have grown back. I imagine that you have to be in greater awe than me; as a medical doctor.
David: Well, absolutely; there’s several things Sid that a couple of things when I face things like this. Number 1 this is totally; God is the healer. He’s the God that healeth us. And I believe that God is speaking to someone here is someone right now that he turning your situation around. Even as we speak. Brother Sid I believe with all my heart that there’s a healing anointing hearing the radio waves going everywhere. And that you’re going to get reports back and we’re going to hear about the signs; wonders ad miracles. You cannot but talk about what He does and He begins; He begin to do what we’re talking about.
Sid: Now I know what we see God doing in your ministry but what by the Spirit… paint me a picture of what God is going to be doing in the next few years in the miraculous in the United States.
David: I feel that the miraculous is going to be more common than we’ve ever seen before. It is going to become almost common place for a lack of a better term. But it’s going to be so frequent because I believe that God is about to showcase His people; His true church. Those that are walking with Him in obedience and that the heartbeat of God is souls. So people from all parts of the world from all races; from all nations; all languages He’s drawing them unto Himself. He came to heal; He came to seek and save that that was lost. He came to heal the sick; you know that’s exactly what Jesus did when He was on earth. He went about and He healed; everywhere He went and He healed. Everywhere He went He just had a ministry of healing; of restoration of building people up. I believe that the church; His children will begin to walk again in the character and the works of Jesus.
Sid: David I wanted you to just talk with me a little bit so that people would get an idea of who you were. Now I’m going to go all the way back to age 13 Bronx, New York. What was going on in your life?
David: Well, it’s a very difficult part of my life and obviously I was the oldest of 6 children, the son of Cuban immigrants. We were living up on the 6th floor in the South Bronx. And as you can well imagine Jimmy Carter declared it at that time Federal disaster zone with buildings burning up and drug abuse and all kinds of alcoholism. You name it. Everything was rampant crime; was being rampant and obviously at that same time… and within my parents there was a great battle. My mother and father obviously were undergoing a great stretch in their marriage. So as a result there was frequent violence in our home. For me as the oldest child obviously it was quite difficult; for me I was trying to help any way I could. To make a long story short my life literally came to a point where one day I literally I literally ran away from home.
Sid: Listen a 13 year old in the streets of Bronx; how did you survive, I mean on your own?
David: Were ever the night would catch me different people would take me in here and there. In the subway; in church wherever I mean. I survived the best I could; I still kept going to school, which is another miraculous thing.
Sid: Did you know the Lord at that time?
David: Yes sir I sure did and that was the place of refuge. All night prayer meetings became a common thing for me.
Sid: What was it a double duty thing; in other words it was prayer but it was also a place to stay warm.
David: Absolutely and to get fed and people would call me. They would see me walking thru and say “Won’t you come up and eat?” And I would ask that; people literally I believe God moved on the. And they knew that I was hungry and they would just feed me.
Sid: Did you find that you were even at that young age 13 in the streets directed by God to spare your life?
David: Oh, definitely. So many times I would be walking through one street and the Holy Spirit would say “Don’t walk through there.” And sure enough there would be a shootout and there would be dead people. So I had to… I had to learn to hear the voice of God because my very life depended on it. It was not about being super spiritual; it’s literally a matter of survival. And scripture says that His sheep hear His voice. And I believe that that’s about to become more common place. It’s what the Word talks about. I had to learn to live by it; but of course at a very young age. So to me it has been nothing really extraordinary but living by what the Word of God says. So my life depended on it and so it’s really been so instrumental of the rest of my life.
Sid: So how in the world does a 13 year old whose heritage is Cuban… so obviously your parents probably came with just the clothing on their back. Am I right from Cuba?
David: Yes Sir.
Sid: And now you’re on your own in the streets; just turned 13. How do you become a vascular surgeon out on the streets?
David: (Laughing) God is so awesome; that’s just a testimony. See it’s not by might; it’s not by power but by His Spirit. I thank God that He does not call the equipped but He equips whom He calls. If we receive Him and we do believe Him He’s said that He’ll done it for me. He’s no respecter of persons; that’s the beauty of this whole thing. I’m not anyone special or extraordinary. I have an extraordinary God. I was a very vulnerable young man and very common young man if anything young man. Blend in the fabric of the streets of New York but I’ve had an extraordinary awesome wonderful God who saw the desire in my heart. I always had the desire in my heart to become a doctor; I always knew that I was going to become one. It’s just at that point in time it seemed anything but possible for me to become. But yet God; I stayed in school. I was able to have the grades and I moved on. And that’s the whole… the keeping power of God because I should have been dead. I should have been…
Sid: For sure.
David: I should have been a drug addict.
Sid: David let’s hold that thought we’ll pick up here on this tomorrow’s broadcast.
