Our Guest Robby Dawkins

SID:  I want everyone that is with us right now to become normal! And so we’re making available Robbie’s book “Do What Jesus Did.” It’s actually a full package. It includes 4 CD’s. And the thing that I want toget into actually on when we come back has to do with the “chutzpah” that you operate under but you’re not the only one in your family that operates under “holy chutzpah.”

ROBBY:  That’s right.

SID:  Your wife did something that astounds me more than the story you just told me but we’ll talk about that when we come back. But this whole series “Do What Jesus Did” package you have these amazing true stories but you have the teaching worked right in along with it. And many people say that you’ll become spiritual giants. You’ll actually emerge as a spiritual giant from this material! What kind of feedback are you getting from ordinary Christians that start harnessing this power?

ROBBY:  Well it’s incredible reports of people coming back that are, that are going out and praying the same way and seeing the same results. And you know I mean they’re tapping into the reality of Christ in them. You know they’re, they’re people who have been praying for change in their community and transformation in their family. I mean the answer is Christ in you and if we have relationship with Jesus Christ then, then it’s there. And the ingredients to do all the things Jesus did lives in us if we have relationship and we’ve been filled with the Holy Spirit.

SID:  And you teach the prophetic, you teach how to heal—

ROBBY:  Absolutely.

SID:  But you teach something that so few believers understand and ministering the presence of God! I want totalk about that also when we come— I’ve got too much to talk to Robby about. For an investment of 39 dollars I’d love to send you the “Do What Jesus Did” package, the 4 CD’s and the Book. And I’ll be back with “Something More!”

SID:  Sid Roth with “Something More!” Our brand new digital show. And I’m talking to Robby Dawkins and I’m having a good time. I hope you’re having as good a time. Robby, you told me something during our break.  

ROBBY:  Yeah. You know with the book “Do What Jesus Did” that I wrote, it came out a couple of years ago, that we have affidavits. It was really important to me because some of the stories are just hard you know I think for people’s heads to get wrapped around. And so we decided, my wife and I prayed about it, and decided that with each one of the stories that were told that we would have affidavits from eyewitnesses or the people that were you know were receiving the miracle or the healing themselves. And so we did that just as an extra step you know just to make sure that we had you know just that validation behind it.

SID:  I know but this book’s been out about 2 years and the things are outrageous of what God’s doing with you right now. Speaking of affidavits, you’ve got something better. You actually had a medical doctor in England when someone actually died on you.

ROBBY:  Yeah.  

SID:  But this time he came back to life. And I am so glad I have the doctor’s testimony right here. And I’ll tell you why. Because the guy that came back to life has a sister that’s a non-believer (laughing) and she wasn’t even there. The guy’s mother was there (laughing) and she’s very upset that this miracle took place. What happened in England?

ROBBY:  Well it was, it was incredible. We had— I love to go to these little, I’ve got quite a following in England and I love the, I love to go to these little churches and just sort of give visions to the pastors and leaders by you know because the Lord’s really blessed me you know to have a good bit of people you know show up and so we had had this pastor had been writing for some time asking me to come and it’s a little you know town, a population of only 180 people and you know the church was far less than that in attendance and you know I just wanted to help give vision and so went there and spent the first part of the day, it was amazing. We went to an area where there was a children’s training area and ministered to some kids and you know saw all the kids. Had the kids pray for each other. Had one kid pray for an instructor who got healed and then you know prayed for one child who had had a burn on her arm, that she’d just come back from the hospital. Had, had a five year old boy pray for her and you know the pain of the burn completely left. It was just amazing.

Our Guest Dr. LaDonna Osborn

SID: You realize LaDonna, that is a creative Miracle and any scientifically minded person would have said to you, “Impossible.” But it’s too late for you LaDonna, you’ve seen too much.

LADONNA: Too late for me.

SID: Too late for you [laughs], too late for me too.

LADONNA: Yes Sir, Yes, Sir—Yes, Sir—[laughs]. See if people can only just trust God, they will see these kind, of Miracles also. These are not just isolated phenomenon; No, Miracles are the manifestation or the proof of God’s Word. And it’s just very clear; All we have to do is believe, not experiment, not test, not just check it out, just believe.

SID: And how do you believe if you haven’t seen what LaDonna has seen? What T.L. Osborn has seen? You know, you’ve never seen stuff like that. How do you just cold turkey; just start believing? [laughs]

LADONNA: [laughs] I think it begins with a real experience with Jesus Christ. Because when you have that real experience, then you know as well as I, that something in your heart has changed. And God in His mercy, He actually gives a capacity, to believe in what we have not yet seen. But once we experience Jesus, and we learn to walk with Him, and trust Him, we let Him come and be involved in our daily lives. Then we study His Words, and we listen to His Words, we see His actions. And as we’re acquainted with Him, that capacity to believe becomes very powerful. The Apostle Paul says it simply, “Faith comes by hearing, and hearing the Word of God.” But in my vernacular, I would just say, “You get to know Him, and trust Him.” Then whatever He says, you know is absolute truth.

SID: And what I believe, is when they get a hold of your Parents book, “Biblical Healing” and get hold of your 3 CD series about the best teaching you have on Miracles, and then the bonus CD, “Jesus Visited Our House” in which you’ll hear T.L. and Daisy go back and forth and sharing in which more Miracles occur than anything they’ve ever done when people just listen to this teaching. Here are the 3 words that I love; the book and the teaching of LaDonna, the 3 CDs and Bonus, simple, proven, powerful. You see, LaDonna is building on the shoulders of her Pioneer Parents, and I want to get this entire healing package in your hands for an investment of $45. This is such and an amazing time that we are living in right now. If I could choose any time on the planet to be alive, it would be ‘now’! This is the wrap-up. We are going to see one of the, greatest harvest, of souls in history. We’re going to see, not just a ‘revival’ as we were talking about yesterday in our prayer meeting. We’re not going to see a ‘revival’; we’re going to see an ‘Awakening’. Entire countries are going to come to the Lord, and I have to believe LaDonna got it. God has positioned you, but I believe there are people that are watching me right now, LaDonna. That when they get a hold of this book, what is the feedback? And we asked you, which of all the books is the most important? What’s the feedback you get on “Biblical Healing” by your dad?

LADONNA: This is the book that produces so many Miracles. It’s not just information about healing, it’s for sick people. And it’s to train Christians, believers in how to minister healing to others. So people are writing us all the time, every country I go to saying, “My life was changed.” Now we know how to see the power of God. I’m telling you, these are such practical not only faith building but life changing materials. I’m just so delighted that your friends and listeners are going to be able to have access to this great treasure.

Our Guest Jonathan Bernis

JAMIE: Tell me about this village in northern Ethiopia.

JONATHAN: Oh my goodness.

JAMIE: This is a miracle story!

JONATHAN: Yeah. Last year, we were doing a medical clinic outreach in northern Ethiopia, near a city called Dundore, which is, historically, where the Jewish community of Ethiopia is from. And we had a lot of opposition from the Orthodox Christian community; in fact, they shut down the prayer room. What do you do when they shut down the prayer room? Is this an attack from the enemy? Well, as a result, our team started to go out into the highways and the byways, into remote villages, to proclaim the Gospel. And one team traveled about two kilometers up this mountain, to this isolated village, where they met the chief of the village who said, “I’ve been waiting for you. I had a dream that one would come and tell me about the sun,” S U N, but it turned out to be the Son, S O N, and the entire village came to faith, all Jews.

JAMIE: Oh my goodness. So they’re waiting for your arrival. It’s like they were warned in advance.

JONATHAN: They were. It’s like right out of the Book of Acts being fulfilled before our very eyes. That’s how I feel sometimes.

JAMIE: So this is now, this discovery of the lost tribes, you’re saying that that is the fundamental part of the restoration of Israel?

JONATHAN: Here’s what I’m saying, Jamie. I think that there’s a number of different prophecies that are directly connected to the last days, (I’m talking about preceding the return of Jesus), that are often overlooked. We’re focused over here on the antichrist, on Gog and Magog, on the revelation of the beast, and a ten-nation confederacy, and so on. And my book is saying, “Wait. Okay, but here’s a whole bunch of things that are being fulfilled, right now, that are off the radar. And one of them is the regathering of the Jewish people back to their land and back to their God.” There’s blindness coming off of the eyes of the Jewish people.

JAMIE: I feel like we can just go into this for days.

JONATHAN: We could.

JAMIE: Okay, if you’re tuning in right now, I’m with the Jewish Indiana Jones. This is amazing, so fascinating to me. I have more questions. Stay tuned for this next part [music]. We’re on “Something More”, I’m Jamie Galloway. Get ready because we’re going to learn some major things about the end times.

JAMIE: Welcome back to “Something More”, I’m Jamie Galloway. Jonathan Bernis is with us today and we’re unlocking the prophetic mysteries of Israel. We have some fascinating subject material, specifically about the end times. I mean, this is your lane, the end times. I’m so intrigued. There’s so much material—

JONATHAN: There is and we can only scratch the surface today.

JAMIE: Yeah. So tell me, you know, with the lost tribes and the connection to the end times, make the connection point there. What does that mean to me? I’m a selfish Gentile, you know. I want something for me. I want a breakthrough for me. Why am I praying for the lost tribes to be restored?

JONATHAN: Well, first of all, Psalms 122:6 connects praying for the Jewish people, the peace of Jerusalem. Which the word shalom there, doesn’t mean peace really; it means the completion of God’s plan and purpose. So it’s to bring to fullness the plan that God has for people and for a land. And then it says those who love thee, those that are on board with this, will prosper. So I tell people if you want to prosper, here’s a clear link to prosper. Pray for God’s plan for the Jewish people to come to pass, to come to completion, both the land and the people, because our salvation, and the salvation of the world, is linked to Israel and the Jewish people. And I make that case in the book over and over and over again. Why do you bless the Jewish people? Because their salvation brings life from the dead.

Our Guest Brian Blount

BRIAN: It was almost like a great cloud of witnesses cheering me on! “Go for it!” And now just something breaks deep in my heart that I think really kept me going to press into Jesus!

DONNA: Wow! And you know I think it’s great that you had an opportunity as soon as that wonderful thing happened in your life you had an opportunity to give testimony.


DONNA: Which I think is a great thing for advice for anybody. Anytime something happens, God does something wonderful in your life, it’s so important to give testimony.

BRIAN: Right.

DONNA: So you went back home now a born again believer. Years passed. You were serving. You’re a Christian. You were wanting to do as much as you could do.

BRIAN: Yeah.

DONNA: And you got invited back to, of all places, a youth camp!

BRIAN: I did! And you know I had been serving at some different youth camps and I was excited to come. And this is a little interesting. Before I actually went to the camp, probably a week before, I literally found myself in the middle of the night waking up and I was just crying and travailing and speaking in tongues which I never had done something like that before. And I kept hearing this thing. “Oh, but the love of God for camp! Oh, but the love of God for camp!”


BRIAN: And I didn’t know how critical that thing was going to be until later. So we show up at the camp and you know it was just a regular camp. In fact, honestly it was my buddy and I were, the only ones, that were, doing a Bible study in a Christian camp. And we did a thing called “The Cross and the Flame.”  

DONNA: Yes. So it’s like a class. 

BRIAN: It was a class we were doing. Yeah.

DONNA: A class you offered. 

BRIAN: And we had about 7 people show up out of 300 so it wasn’t really that great, right?

DONNA: It wasn’t that popular! [Laughs]

BRIAN: So we just taught a little bit about what we knew about Jesus and the Holy Spirit. Well, something incredible happened that evening that was remarkable. All of a sudden these kids just start to worship! And as they’re worshipping God I mean just the presence gets really, really thick! And I hadn’t seen these kids at all do this. They hadn’t been in an environment for that. They had never been taught that. 

DONNA: Uh-huh.

BRIAN: And they were praying prayers like, “Lord, let Your kingdom come!” And all of a sudden – it made some of the leaders there a little bit nervous. [Laughs] And they stopped it and said, “Okay, we’re going to move on.” And so we move on and we go outside and they were going to have this little thing where they actually wrote their sins on a card and threw it in the fire and you know just one of those camp things. 

DONNA: Yeah. Yeah.

BRIAN: And all of a sudden again they start worshipping, these kids! And again a nervousness comes to the leaders and they go up and they say “Hey, it’s time to stop. It’s time to go eat some s’mores.

DONNA: [Laughs]

BRIAN: Right? I mean literally just stops the thing. Right? We’re in the presence of God.

DONNA: When you don’t know what to do, just go eat s’mores! Right?

BRIAN: Exactly right! And so this 7th-grade boy comes up to me and tugs me on the shirt and says, “Brian.” He said, “How come every time the Holy Spirit comes, these pastors tell Him to go away?”  You know my mouth just dropped. I’m like, “I don’t know.” At that moment this girl comes running up and says to the young man is there something wrong with your sister? You know I thought maybe she had a heat stroke? She had an asthma attack? Whatever. Anyway, I walked over and she’s shaking on the ground speaking in tongues!   

DONNA: Whoa! [Laughs]

Our Guest David Hernandez

DAVID: And so as I’m ministering, I’m preaching my message. And I like to use, what’s called spirit-led structure. You set it up and then the Holy Spirit can knock it down if he wants. So I’m over there ministering. And I remember hearing the words coming out of my mouth, but it was as if I was a listener with those in the congregation, listening to me speak. I remember hearing myself interrupting my own sermon. And it was as if the Holy Spirit had taken hold of me. I understand that we have self control. It is a fruit of the spirit, but this was not a loss of control. This was an overtaking, being controlled from the deepest part of who I am.

SID: You were operating out of the spirit, not within the brain and the flesh.

DAVID: Right. It was a different function. And I remember when that anointing comes on me, I become a different person. And so I remember in the middle of my sermon, I start calling this woman up and I knew that I knew that I knew that she would be healed. And so she comes to the front I very gently took her cane, set it aside. And I told her to receive her miracle. Right there in front of everyone. She began to move her right arm, her right hand and lift her right leg. She hadn’t been able to do that for years, move like that. And there was a collective gasp and sense of awe that came over the congregation. By the end of that revival weekend, she was dancing on the platform during the worship and the people’s faith was stirred. But that’s what comes, things like that, they’re a manifestation of living in that inner reality with the spirit

SID: The oneness you talk about, that’s what you’re explaining right now. When people read your book and you explain how to pray in the Spirit in the book. Can every true believer enter this oneness, this surrender that God has directed you to?

DAVID: Absolutely. First John 2:27 says we’ve all received that anointing within. We’ve all received that stirring within us, the Holy Spirit residing. Now, some people want to know, “Well, how do I activate that? Because I know I’ve had that deposit.” Well, think about this, first Thessalonians 5:23 alludes to the fact that I am a spirit who has a soul that lives in a body. My body is my earth suit, my soul, my mind, my will, my emotions. And my spirit is my connection with God. So the key then is surrendering the outer shells of who you are to that inner reality. John 7:38, out of your innermost being shall flow rivers of living water.

DAVID: Surrendering to that innermost reality is the essence of the Christian life. It’s not something special for people who sit on Sid Roth’s program. It’s not something special for the guy who stands at the pulpit with a microphone. This is to be, the early church understood this. This is why the gospel exploded onto the scene in the face of persecution, because they grabbed ahold of the reality that all believers get their identity from deep within, not judging themselves based upon the outer shells, but pulling from that inner reality and recognizing, “I am one with the Holy Spirit, I am one with God. I fellowship with him already. And it’s just a matter of releasing that through surrender.”

SID: The most amazing thing is some of you may have tuned in late, or you take a look at David and you say, “Well, he’s a pretty young guy. I don’t know if he can teach me anything.” How many years have you walked with the Holy Spirit?

Our Guest Katie Souza

SID: Yeah. You know, Katie has researched these scriptures, but this is something I’ve always wondered. Moses, Caleb, they were elderly men, and their strength wasn’t abated. Even their eyesight didn’t even fade. They somehow knew this secret.

KATIE: Yes, they did. The devil even fought over Moses’s body. Think about that. Why did he want to do that? Probably wanted to look into how he stayed so young.

Caleb gives us the answer. Remember it says that when they went into the Promised Land, that Caleb went to Joshua and said, “Okay, I’m 85 years old. I want my inheritance. Because 45 years ago, Moses told me that my inheritance was the hill country of Hebron,” which is where the Anakim, the giants lived. Okay? He told Joshua, he said, “I’m 85 now, but I’m just as strong as I was back then 45 years ago. In fact, I’m just as strong going into battle as I am coming out of battle.”

Now, what was his secret? He’s an 85-year-old in a 45-year-old’s body. What’s his secret? He was from the tribe of Judah. It’s praise. See, when we praise, when we worship, it brings in the glory.

SID: Okay. Now, tell me, very briefly, and this is outrageous, the woman with the dead bones.

KATIE: Okay. There was a woman named Terry Woods. I’m in Oregon with Steve Schultz. I’m doing a conference. The power shows up. I’m walking in this revelation already over the spirit of death. I say, “Whoever got a miracle now,” because I started operating in miracles, I said, “Come up to the front.” You can watch this on YouTube. Every video, every miracle we’ve ever had is on YouTube. Okay.

She comes up. Her name is Terry. She had what’s called a dead bone. An MRI and an X-ray proved that the ball at the top of her arm was completely dead. But even though it was dead, it caused her excruciating pain, like 10 level plus pain. She was scheduled to have a surgery to try to do something to fix it. Even though she had that pain, she could bend her elbow here, but she couldn’t raise her arm.

I come up and I said, “Whoever’s 100% healed, come up.” She walks up to the stage, looks at me and goes, “100%.” She’s bawling. I call her up. She tells the story. I said, “How’s the pain now, girl?” She goes, “No pain.” I go, “Can you move your arm?” She proceeds to throw her arms up and down…. a victory stance, and a thousand people going crazy.

SID: But she can’t do that with this—

KATIE: No, no. In fact, she canceled the surgery that she was scheduled to have.

SID: Sounds good to me. When we return, Katie will break off the spirit of death on your health, mind, family and finances. Be right back

SID: Hello. Sid Roth here talking with Katie Souza. This is ridiculous, Katie.

KATIE: Yeah.

SID: A lady shook off the spirit of death?

KATIE: Oh yeah.

SID: Tell me….

KATIE: I actually shook it off her through the power of God. Her name was Marilyn. I’m in a meeting. I’m taking questions from people afterwards. She stands in back of me, waiting in line. She tugs on my shirt, finally, to get my attention. I turned around and I said, “What can I do for you?” She said, “I am dying.”

I looked at her, and she was right. Sid, she looked just like the man in Job 33. Her bones were sticking out. Her flesh was clinging to her body. She was gray. Her hair was sparse. She did look like she was literally at death’s door.

Then she began to explain how she had radon poisoning and also mold poisoning, and how the doctors had treated her, but she could never recover. She said, “I’m weak. I can’t drive. I can’t get myself ready. I barely want to eat. Nothing satisfies me.” She goes, “I know I’m dying.”

As she’s telling me the story, Sid, I see a vision in my mind. I see a vision of me grabbing hold of her and violently shaking her, while commanding the spirit of death to come out. Now, I don’t recommend this for the audience. Okay. They have to have a word of knowledge before they do it.

Our Guest Natasha Schedrivaya

DONNA: Natasha. Natasha. I want you to stay with us. We’re going to take a quick break, but we’ll be back in just a moment.


DONNA: Welcome back to “Something More.” I’m here with Natasha. And she has a wonderful story that she wants to tell.

NATASHA: Yes. Just not long ago I was up in the, above the [inaudible] circle area where we have mission work and churches. And during the Sunday service I was talking about God’s goodness, and telling the stories from the Bible, and giving testimonies, stories from the people who have experienced God’s miraculous power. After that, And I prayed for their healing. A general prayer. I didn’t lay hands on everybody. So, after the service, a lady runs to me, and she says, She’s doing this; she’s shaking her hand, her arm. And she says, “Can you imagine when you said that God is so good, and you were talking about how He is loving, and how He is kind, and how He wants to heal me, Here I am for 15 years having this arthritis and swollen – uh?

DONNA: Knuckles? [laughs]

NATASHA: Knuckles. Knuckles. She says she lived with the pain and took a lot of medicine. And she said, “Suddenly I saw that why in the world I’m carrying this sickness if God loved me so much that He already took, Jesus took upon Himself all the symptoms and all the pain?” And she said, “And here I am standing during general prayer while you are praying for everybody. And I’m shaking off this sickness.” And she says, “It doesn’t belong to me. It doesn’t belong to me.” And she comes to me and she shows me, and I don’t see any swollenness. And I asked the pastor to come. And I said, “Pastor. Look at this lady.” And the pastor starts praising God. And he says, “Well, the church has been praying for this lady,” because she had, you know, pain and arthritis. And so he saw, he confirmed that the healing took place, the miracle took place. And this is how unique each person’s response is to God’s goodness. If I would just preach the whole sermon about what you need to do, what steps everybody needs to take, it’s almost like giving the same pill to everybody.

DONNA: Yeah. Yeah.

NATASHA: But once you give them the revelation of God’s goodness people know what to do. You know, they immediately, when they trust God, they know in their heart how to respond, and how to shake out that sickness and make this healing a reality for them.

DONNA: Yes. Yes. And as you said, you take it upon yourself. Your task is to make Him irresistible.


DONNA: And then they trust Him, and miracles follow. What did you say? A chaos of miracles? [laughs]

NATASHA: A chaos of miracles takes place.

DONNA: I love it. I love it.

NATASHA: We are so focused on order, you know, especially in Russia. You know it’s a country of law and order. So we just want order during the service. But once you really bring the revelation of God you cannot control that, when people get their revelation, and when they start responding in faith. The miracles start happening during, before the prayer.

DONNA: Yes. And something so important, You know how when you want something it’s different than when you long for something.

NATASHA: That’s true. Mm-hmm.

Our Guest Ron Phillips

RON: I’m going to stop right here for just a minute. The Lord’s revealed to me that there’s some of you who have been left by a man or a woman. You have been hurt deeply and you’ve not forgiven them. And some of you are saying they made me depressed. It’s their fault. If somebody hurt you and that’s created this in your life or even if you’re angry at God because you’ve lost a loved one say right now Lord, I forgive. Say it out.

AUDIENCE: Lord, I forgive.

RON: Those who hurt me.

AUDIENCE: Those who hurt me.

RON: I just saw chains fall off some of you. Some of you will feel a lightness coming off your chest. There a heaviness leaving your chest right now in the name of Jesus. Now say Lord, forgive me.

AUDIENCE: Lord, forgive me.

RON: Put me under the blood.

AUDIENCE: Put me under the blood.

RON: Now!


RON: I want you to release authority. Say I release authority.

AUDIENCE: I release authority.

RON: To Pastor Ron.

AUDIENCE: To Pastor Ron.

RON: To deal with this spirit.

AUDIENCE: To deal with this spirit.

RON: I say to the spirit of heaviness on all these who are standing you’re a liar, a murderer and a thief! You have no standing in their life and you can’t stay. I expose you to the light and the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ! I cancel your right! You have no standing! They have confessed that stronghold that allowed you there and at my word and by their breath you will leave now! I want you to say this after me three times. Be gone!

AUDIENCE: Be gone!

RON: Be gone!

AUDIENCE: Be gone!

RON: Be gone!

AUDIENCE: Be gone!

RON: In the name of Jesus!

AUDIENCE: In the name of Jesus!

RON: Now take a deep breath. Take another one. [laughs] Take another breath. Take another breath. Now He said He’d, look at me now, He said He’d give you a garment of praise.


RON: How many of you – you know I got dressed I’m not a morning person, I didn’t feel like getting dressed when I got dressed.


RON: That’s why I didn’t say get happy – He said put on, you have to get dressed whether you want to or not.

AUDIENCE: Amen. That’s right.

RON: So right now you got to decide. I think I’m just going to praise God right now.


RON: So go ahead and give Him a hand clap, give Him a shout!


RON: Come up. I want you to come up here. You. Come right up here. Everybody else sit down but her. Come up here, darling. Where’s my oil? This is Ken Wilkerson. As long as you don’t approach me suddenly you’ll be all right.


RON: This is Noble, the angel. This is my armor-bearer from Chattanooga. You know we weren’t finished, didn’t you? There’s so much hurt in you. Is there anything physically wrong with you?

WOMAN #1: No.

RON: I didn’t think so. The Lord’s going to restore your beauty. The beauty of the Lord will be upon you. This old stress is about to kill you.

WOMAN #1: Uh-huh.

RON: Somebody hurt you.

WOMAN #1: Uh-huh.

RON: And the enemy told you you weren’t anything and you may have even done a few things wrong but you know God doesn’t even remember those.

WOMAN #1: Uh-huh.

RON: So who’s reminding you? The one who wants to kill you.

WOMAN #1 :Uh-huh.

Our Guest Ron Phillips


RON PHILLIPS: I want to talk to you for a few minutes. And I’m going to get to James 5 and we’re going to talk about anointing with oil. But I want to talk to you about the Latter Rain. It was one of the segments on the program we taped today but you didn’t hear that so it’s going to be some repetition for some of the staff. But I want to talk you about the Latter Rain and what it is and what its promise is for the Last Days. Now the first mention of the Latter Rain in the Bible is in the Book of Deuteronomy, chapter 11, verse 11 and following. But the land which you cross over to possess is a land of hills and valleys which drinks water from the rain of heaven, a land for which the Lord your God cares, now that’s Israel, a land for which the Lord your God cares. The eyes of the Lord your God are always on it from the beginning of the year to the very end of the year. And it shall be that if you earnestly obey My commandments which I command you today to love the Lord your God and serve Him with all your heart and with all your soul I will give you the rain for your land in its season, the early rain and the latter rain, that you may gather in your grain, your new wine and your oil. This is the first mention of the Latter Rain and one of the principles of understanding God’s Word is The Law of First Mention. When something is first mentioned in the Bible that will be its primary meaning all the way through the Word of God to the very end. And here God is talking about their possessing their land, going in, possessing that land, becoming fruitful in that land. So understand that the Latter Rain itself has to do with Israel, the people of God, and their possession of the land. So when you hear someone talking about well the latter rain’s about to fall always know that if they’re rightly interpreting what’s happening it has something to do with what’s going on in Israel. Now let me give you a little bit of history. The land of Israel, the Jews have just been back there since 1948 but the movement’s been going on longer than that and I’m going to show you a little comparison real quick with history and Israel. There have already been two Latter Rain movements in our history and because there are two of them people say well neither none of them are real cause Jesus didn’t come back. But I’m about to show you something if you’ll stay with me for about a half an hour. The first Latter Rain movement started about the 1880’s. Went to Azusa in the early 1900’s and it was powerful. The evangelists that came along and that were raised up in those days, I think of Richard Spurling, A.J. Tomlinson who founded the Church of God in Cleveland, the Baptists, the disaffected Baptists, the Methodists that were even before Azusa were speaking in tongues, the early Pentecostals in Kentucky and Arkansas and even some Baptists in the areas of Arkansas it was going on. At the very moment in 1898 that Latter Rain, they were calling it Latter Rain, a man named Theodore Herzl wrote a book, Der Judenstat or The Jewish State to come and so that was the beginning of Zionism. Latter Rain Number One. I could spend an hour talking about that history. It happened. And remember those of you who may be people of color that, that Azusa was an African-American movement but it’s connected with Zion. Unfortunately many people in some of the communities of faith whether they’re White Anglo, predominantly white, predominantly African-American or whatever, I believe we’re just one church now by itself by the way.

As I share a testimony with you it’s a spirit of prophecy for God to release those things in you. Begin to sense the sweet fragrance of the Holy Spirit. And then suddenly there were fragrances in the room that smelled like, I don’t know if you like these things or not, but like you know when you open the oven and there’s a chocolate cake in there cooking (laughing) and that “shooo” (breathing in) oooh, chocolate! (laughing) You know what I’m talking about? There’s angels that came in the room that smell like that chocolate. I said oh, angel, come over here, come over here. You can sit next to me. And some of them smell like cookies and all kinds of sweet things. You know when we used to sing “There’s a Sweet, Sweet Spirit in This Place” and I think the writer of the song knew what he was talking about, or she, I’m not sure who wrote it.

But there is a sweetness of the spirit that God wants you to experience. A sweet, sweet spirit in this place and the Spirit is bringing to you all of the things that God releases from the kingdom of heaven. Amen? You know the Bible says that the Lord tastes good. Right? Taste and see that the Lord is good. And the word of God tastes sweet on our lips like honey. And I think God wants to activate that sense of taste that we begin to taste more and more of His presence and know God is here! I can taste it! You know in the Seder Meal at Passover at one point you’re told to break off a big piece of matzah. Well when I first started eating matzah I thought this tastes like cardboard. (laughing) Yeah, I had to develop a little bit of a taste for it.

But it says in that service that you’re supposed to take this big piece and you’re supposed to savor the flavor of the matzah. And so I started chewing that and I was doing my best to savor the flavor of cardboard. Hahahahaha! (starts imitating chewing) You know I’m working on this big piece of matzah and I’m working on it and all of a sudden it tasted sweet. It was like it changed in my mouth and it became such a sweet, sweet flavor. And I love to do that now. I love to have matzah for communion    and I always take a big chunk of that you know and I start chewing on it and I’m going to chew on it until it gets sweet because it represents the bread of heaven, it represents the word of God. And those are sweet, sweet things that we need to take into us and savor the flavor. Well I believe God is trying to wake up our spiritual senses that we’ll begin to feel that way about the word of God. You know I love the word of God.

I can’t wait when I go to bed at night I’m thinking oh man, first thing in the morning I’m going to get up and I’m going to get the Bible open I’m going to start reading the word of God. And sometimes it’s hard to sleep I’m getting too excited. Too excited because in just a little while I’m going to be back in the word of God and I’m going to savor the flavor and let the sweetness of God just fill my whole body. Amen? Well God wants you to also feel the things of the kingdom. And God has so many different kinds of anointing for “feelers.” For you to feel the presence of angels. For you to feel the kind of gifts that He’s releasing. In fact before I came in here I started feeling something. God has given me this place on my body. It’s right here. That when I begin to feel something moving there, some kind of energy there, it means that healing angels have been sent. And they have been sent into this room. And I began to see in the Spirit many, many healing angels. And when I see angels I speak to the angel.
