Sid: Sid Roth hear with Michelle Gold and Michelle I’m still thinking about the miracle that happened when you had the surgery that many people would never be able to sing or talk again after a surgery like that. It not only was successful but what happened to your voice?
Michelle: The amazing is that when after my dad was all worried about me; would I ever be able to sing would I ever be able to sing, would I ever be able to sing every night? We first of all Joe and I got married he mentored me in my faith as a Jewish believer. Even though he was in the church he was a kosher hearted Gentile.
Sid: This was the Youth Pastor that you met when you first went to the church go ahead.
Michelle: Yes and Joe and I fell in love with each other the whole another story in itself but the miracle was I went on a tour after that singing like 6 nights a week it was amazing. I mean that’s unheard of after I spent 13 years I could lose my voice on a cough prior to that you know. I went from losing my voice on one conversation to being able to sing every night and 2 on Sunday.
Sid: And you told me how many notes higher you could sing.
Michelle: I would say at least 8 notes higher if not 12 my voice therapist was in shock, she was amazed.
Sid: Okay you join Jews for Jesus and you go on tour with them tell me about that.
Michelle: So after the Lord healed my voice miracles of miracles. I get invited to go a tour with Jews for Jesus traveling music group called “The Liberated Wailing Wall.” And I’m thinking “This will be great because I could use everything God’s done for me and I could use my voice to sing every night on that tour and 2 times on Sunday was pretty miraculous. It was just amazing how hundreds of people came to the Lord through that tour every night when we sang we would do an altar call and the people would re-dedicate their hearts to the Lord. Even one night pastors were saved; one of them we shared the gospel on college campuses. It was amazing to see what the Lord could do when I was weak in the past and now the Lord restored everything to me and I was able to strong.
Sid: Now did you actually go out on the street with Jews for Jesus and witness?
Michelle: Yes I did, we were required you know that was one of the beautiful requirements of the tour. That they didn’t want us to be so focused on the business of music they want us to know that it’s a ministry, that we love people that we want to serve people and bring salvation and so part of that training was go out on the streets share through talking to people and interviewing people. And we always had to ask people who do you think Jesus is?
Sid: Tell me one experience on the streets.
Michelle: Gosh the best experience I had on the streets was at a college campus singing about the Lord and people coming up to me one by one just staring at me wanting and then asking me about the Lord immediately after singing. These people never would have talked to me if I hadn’t been standing there making a fool of myself singing in the middle of the sidewalk on the college campus.
Sid: Okay tell me about the vision God has put in your heart the urgency to reach Jewish people.
Michelle: Now over the years I… when I first started singing for the Lord it was a contemporary Christian kind of sound and I just thought I’m not going to talk to my own people about the Lord because frankly Sid it was so hard for me to be rejected and I didn’t like that not being liked. But when I shared my faith with Jewish people sometimes they would turn from me and I would lose the friendship. But you know the Lord started convicting me that sharing the good news is way more important than keeping a friendship intact that what good is it if I become their friends and then they don’t know about heaven and they don’t know about a better place. What if today is their last day they need to know that heavens real but forget everything else. But the Lord convicted me I had to share my faith with Jewish people one day when I was sitting down for dinner with some friends. And I said “Why do you need to go to the Jewish people so what can’t you just shard your faith with anybody everybody needs to hear the good news you know Jesus came for everyone?” And I was thinking maybe I don’t know and I got up and I started to talk to the Lord about it and He gave me He spoke to my heart very clearly and God said “If you don’t reach my Jewish people who else will, who else will go?” And I said “But Lord why are we the chosen people are we so special why are we so chosen.” And the Lord spoke to my heart “You have to reach the chosen people because we are the forgotten people.” not forgotten by God but forgotten by men nobody wants to reach the Jewish people. It was then and there I knew that I have to go and it was confirmed with the scripture of Isaiah 6 where he’s told he says “Here I am send me.” And also Romans 10:14 I love that scripture where it says “But how can they call on Him to save them unless they believe and how can they believe if they’ve never heard about Him and how can they hear unless someone tells them and how can anyone go without being sent; beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news.” So I knew Sid I had to go, I had to be the one to share my faith and I then wrote a beautiful album’s worth of music where I could share my faith in a way that Jewish would understand where I’m coming from.
Sid: Tell me about the song “Who Will God?”
Michelle: Well that’s just it I just realized I’ve got to share my faith with my own people there’s just no excuse times running out. I don’t know if these is going to be my last day. Sure I’m 38 but I don’t know and what about what about my friends what about my father and people in my life that need the Lord. This just can’t be it this earth can’t be it there’s more than this there’s so much more there’s another place where they’ll be no more tears and no more pain; I want them to go with them I what to go with them to that place one day I want to share my faith. I constantly pray Sid every day “Lord fill me with urgency, fill me with urgency let not disaster strike before I have an urgency to reach my people; they need to hear the good news and the church needs to know about their Jewish roots so little Jewish girls like me who walk in will know the Jewish Messiah that they need to know and they will be revival in the land. So I am hoping that if you are listening today that you’re catching my contagious compassion; my contagious passion for sharing my faith and sharing the hope I have.
Sid: Michelle Gold “Who Will Go.”
Excerpt “Who Will Go.”
Sid: Now Michelle I’ve been in Jewish ministry for over 40 years and I can tell you I know what it’s like when there’s a move of God’s Spirit on Jewish people and I know what it’s like when there’s not a move of God’s Spirit on Jewish people. When I first got saved in the early 70’s there was an amazing move on Jewish people and many of the leaders today in the movement came to the Lord, but since that time outside of the Russian Jews there has been no big openness among Jewish people but things have changed we are hitting a major move and outpouring of God’s Spirit in Israel. And as I said that God just told me someone’s neck and back was just healed in Jesus name, and someone’s muscles in their arm. There had been a pain in your muscles you don’t have it anymore in Jesus name. What I have found is the combination of the set time to favor Zion that’s where we are right now plus understanding the supernatural. You see when I spoke almost a month ago in Jerusalem we had 550 unsaved Jewish people and they did not know I was going to talk about Jesus. They knew they were coming for a lecture on the supernatural and the minute I started speaking there was a swoosh of the Holy Spirit and many of them got instantly healed they stood up testified to the fact that they were physically healed and then listened to a full presentation of the gospel. The Bible says the Jew requires a sign the Jew requires a miracle and that’s why so many Jewish people are being swept into the New Age are being swept into the occult because no one is telling them my people about Jesus. I am all in favor or having rallies for Israel I happen to have dual citizenship I’m very pro-Israel I am all in favor of bless Israel nights and humanitarian activities towards the Jewish people. And I’ll tell you what God’s in favor and God’s going to bless you for it and I have to tell you there is an urgency to proclaim the gospel to Jewish people right now. There is a window that God has opened and woe is me if we don’t at this moment in history. But you must be mentored in moving in the supernatural…. It’s a phenomenal thing when Jewish people see the supernatural in things like Buddhism and New Age they flock. Michelle I was in Boca Raton and they have a New Age Buddhism Center just for Jewish people there and I drove by the place was filled with cars of Jewish people.
Michelle: Yeshua would be crying.
Sid: But this is the set time I want you listening right now I want you equipped to move in the supernatural we’re about ready to see the greatest miracles the world has ever seen. And I’m going to tell you one more thing when you reach out to a Jewish person… look when you are pro-Israel when you got to a bless Israel rally, when you give money for Jewish humanitarian activities you have already found out God will bless you. But how much more is God going to bless you when give a Jewish person the most important thing they could ever have. Michelle do you know about the increase in anti-Semitism that is going on throughout the world right now in Paris, France and in Ukraine Jewish people can’t wait to get out and come to Israel.
Michelle: My goodness I’m praying and you know they say the greatest defense the greatest way to offend the Jewish person is to not share about heaven and not share about Yeshua that He’s the way, the truth and the life you know. Everybody is so politically correct it just breaks my heart, it breaks my heart that we would hold back on great news like that there’s a better place.
Sid: Now God is really expanding your gifting and I believe that you could sing a song that God is going to give you right now with a word from God no music, would you do that right now?
Michelle: Amen. (Michelle worshiping) Oh Father God bless your people use them, use us Lord God because mighty vessels Lord God. And I just feel that somebody’s out there you need to be dipped in the waters of God; you’ve been like Naman you’ve been saying “No” but God is saying “Yes.” Dip yourself in the water of God there is healing there and you’re going to be touched right now thank You Lord for healing that person listening thank You Father God.
Sid: And I’m hearing that God is healing joints whether it’s your elbow or your hip any joint area, fingers the pain is gone it’s being removed in Jesus Name. Michelle I know that Yeshua is your life tell me about the time someone tried to assault you on a train in New York City.
Michelle: I was on the F train in New York City at 4:13 in the afternoon. I happened to be reading 2 Corinthians 4:13 about professing your faith in the Lord. Well I had been doubting Yeshua once again was He really the Messiah and I needed to know. And I had been falling asleep reading my Bible and heard this voice say “Wake up, wake up!” And I kept waking up and all of a sudden I stood up from my seat and a man that looked like something like 6’3” wrapped his arm around my neck and started to proceed to kill me. And my whole life flashed before my very eyes and the authority of the Lord that I had just received from reading that word came over me. It was amazing the voice I didn’t even recognize the voice that came out of me as he was pinching against my neck. And I said “In the name of Jesus back off.” And the man completely backed off. I was in my 20’s I had a lot of expensive things on me I was completely untouched the man did not touch me he completely let me go I walked.. the train happened to stop at that moment you know it had just gone through a tunnel I could have been with the man a long time it just stopped and it opened up and he watched me walk off. And you know what I was so filled with the faith of the Lord I then turned around and proceeded to rebuke him in the name of the Father the Son and the Holy Spirit (Laughing). I was so shaken up with praise I immediately fell down to the platform and started praising God. (Laughing) That night we didn’t cancel our Bible study we told all the youth in our youth group about what the Lord had done and their faith we increased. It was pretty awesome and not only that I saw God heal my relationship with my mom I saw Him heal her bipolar. He did an amazing miracle on her and she’s been an awesome Mom to me the most positive person in my life. Gosh I had a car accident I spun around 3 times hit a wall came out saying “Hallelujah praise the Lord” stood up no pain. God’s done so much for me it’s amazing.
Sid: Michelle I want you to give us one last thought what is God telling you to tell us right now?
Michelle: I feel the Lord is telling us to actually you know I was reading your book recently and I’m not saying this to bring glory to anybody Sid but I’m with you 100%. I think it is time for the Body of Messiah to receive and to be blessed with the supernatural move of God. We have to embrace it it cannot be life as usual it cannot be church as usual we need the supernatural move of God even if you’re not going to jump up and down scream kind of person, you can experience the supernatural in the peacefulness in your seat right now in your congregations. And we need to embrace those Biblical feasts because we need to provoke the Jewish people to jealousy it is time for such a time as this let’s not waste anymore time. We need to get on board with the Spirit of the living God people are hungry, they’re thirsty let us go into God’s presence and let us move in the supernatural and draw close to Him and bring His people home to Him.
Sid: Now I don’t know if those listening can feel what I can feel right now but there is an overwhelming presence of God in this studio. I believe that as I proclaim the name of Yeshua as I’m going to do in one moment whatever condition you have put your hand if you have a heart problem put your hand on your heart. If you have a pain like on your neck or wherever your pain is whether you have diabetes or whatever put your hand on your body and this is what the Bible says “Those that believe will lay hands on the sick,” you believe your laying hands on the sick and it says “They will recover.” So when I count to three I’m going to say “Yeshua” and your receive it 1, 2, 3 Yeshua be whole in Yeshua’s name.
