SID: James Goll, over the years obviously we know each other, but I’ve followed what’s been going on, and you’ve going through more testing than most people I know. You almost died a few times.
SID: You get cancers multiple times. But you recently had a heavenly visitation.
SID: What happened?
JAMES: I got caught up into a heavenly experience and in this I was invited to a hill. And I went in this visitation, and I was invited to sit down at a table, and across from me is sitting an important person from Heaven, and they’re looking right at me. Again, I went through cancer three times over nine years. I’ve had my kidneys virtually almost shut down and I’ve had four near-death encounters. I sit down in this heavenly encounter at the table of the Lord, and across from me is a messenger from Heaven. And this messenger from Heaven, very important person, looks right at me and with fierceness and philosophy, it’s like called Faith that Fights, looks right into my soul, and says to me, “For the next 20 years of your life, I want you to terrorize the devil, terrorize the devil.”
SID: Now, I don’t know if you caught this, he now no longer is living day to day, each week, month to month, he’s got a minimum, minimum of 20 years, from Heaven. Okay, you say every believer needs discernment. So for starters, I know what the word “discernment” means, most people do, but what does discernment mean biblically, spiritually.
JAMES: One of the devil’s greatest tricks is deception and one of the church’s greatest needs is discernment. Now in the different gifts of the Holy Spirit, there is the gift of discernings of spirits. They’re both in the plural. And there are five different classifications of spirits. So the person who moves in, and it can move in many different levels, in many different ways, but that will perceive, distinguish, differentiate the different motivating spirits behind an activity, they then can see the angelic. They can know the Holy Spirit. They can discern the demonic. And when you are moving in this realm it will sharpen and clarify, and help enhance and bring all the other gifts that are in operation in your life to another level.
SID: When this gift really increases will a believer know the difference between their thoughts, demonic thoughts and God’s thoughts? That’s really critical these days.
JAMES: It’s really critical because Jesus said, “My sheep will hear my voice. I know them and they will follow me.”
SID: All right
JAMES: So we, as a believer, we know them by faith, we hear God’s voice. Right, Sid?
JAMES: But we hear more than one voice. I hear my voice, I hear the voice of the world. At times, I get bombarded and I hear the voice of the enemy, but we also hear the Holy Spirit. So we don’t only need to hear, we need to learn to discern the voice of the Holy Spirit from the voice of the stranger.
SID: That is so critical. Can you imagine all the mistakes you’ve made that you don’t have to make because this gift of discernment, which you’re entitled to if you’re a believer in the Messiah, will sharpen all the other gifts.
JAMES: I remember one of the times, I was ministering in Anaheim, California at a vineyard conference. I’m standing on the platform with the seer prophet John Paul Jackson, and if you bring somebody prophetically to me and I can lay hands upon them, I can prophesy. And that night, the Holy Spirit gave me a dream, and in this dream I saw tongues of fire that would sit on people. And I’m like, are you kidding me? Is that the way these guys do that? So the next day, I’m ministering there with John Wimber and all these people, and I had to touch people. And John Paul turns to me in front of thousands of people, and says, “It’s your turn to go first.” And I go, ahhh! And I’m praying my word of faith, “Help, help, help!” And so then all of a sudden, my spiritual eyes were open and I saw tongues of fire sitting on different people’s heads, like in Acts, Chapter 2. And so all I had to do was, “You, right there.” And the Holy Spirit fell on that person. They actually fell out in the Spirit. They got sovereignly delivered. They got miraculously healed of scoliosis just by identifying the Holy Spirit through discernment that was resting upon their life.
SID: I believe what James just described is going to be normal for him and normal for others.
SID: Because this discernment will grow and grow like loaves and fishes.
JAMES: Yes, multiply.
SID: Just keep growing, multiply. Now, we have natural senses, everyone knows, see, hear, taste, smell, etc. But we also have supernatural senses and most people don’t know about this common fact.
JAMES: That’s right. Hebrews, Chapter 5, Verse 14 talks about solid food. So how many of you want to actually have a solid food, not just a baby diet? Okay. Solid food is for the mature who practice their senses to discern good and evil. So as you said, five senses: sight, hear, smell, taste, touch. As we surrender our five natural senses unto the Holy Spirit and as we declare freedom and it’s a speech-activated kingdom, we surrender our members, our eyes, our ears, our heart, unto the Lord. We declare freedom over them, and then we pray and we receive the anointing of the Holy Spirit upon our natural senses. Then we become naturally supernatural.
SID: Okay. I need a little bit more. I want to have all of my spiritual senses activated and come alive.
SID: And I want to ask him how I can do it. But guess what, you come along. We’ll find out how you can, too. We’ll be right back.
