SID: Jane, you teach something that I wish more people understood. If you have an unsaved friend, an unsaved family member, you have a new way to pray for them. Explain that.
JANE: Well, if God is going to pour out His spirit on all flesh, then I think that we can start praying and asking God to give that individual a dream. Because a dream bypasses all of the walls of defense that people would put up even to just coming and trying to evangelize them. But when God Himself starts to speak to them in dreams, it’s amazing. Job chapter 33 actually says God may speak one way or in another, but many times man doesn’t perceive it. Then at night in a vision while a man sleeps upon his bed, then He begins to remove pride from man so that He begins to speak into his heart. I have actually been able to sit next to somebody and interpret their dream. See, sometimes I can tell people that I’m a pastor or that I’m a prophet, but if I just tell people, you know, I interpret dreams, then that atheist will say, Oh, well, really? I had this dream. And they’ll tell me a dream, and God will open up their heart and use the prophetic word as a key through that dream.
SID: Speaking of dreams, what do you tell someone that says, I don’t dream or I don’t understand my dreams or I don’t remember my dreams, any of the above? I have an idea that the devil really tries to sabotage this wonderful vehicle God has given us.
JANE: He does. You know, because I think if you really even look at scripture you know that people even receive impartation at night when they sleep in dreams. So it’s such an important thing. And so scientists actually say that everybody dreams, it is just a matter of do we remember our dreams. And so I like to train people how to capture their dreams if they’re not remembering them, how to take the dream and interpret it if it’s actually something that’s symbolic, and how to take the message that God is bringing to us through the dream and actually apply it to our lives or to our circumstance, or how to pray even for our nation, and how to bring that forth so that we’re not just being hearers but actually doers of what God is speaking to us.
SID: Now, you’ve put together such a simplistic plan for understanding the symbols. Give us a little bit of this understanding of symbols, because a dream, you might think it is a literal thing but it really is a symbolic thing of something else.
JANE: That’s right. And I think that what we have to understand, first of all, is that there’s no just book of symbols that we can go run and look it up and say, Well, if you dream this it means this, because God will speak to individuals through their own personal language of symbolism.
SID: Right. It’s different for each person.
JANE: Exactly. If I love dogs and you don’t like dogs, that symbol is going to mean something different to different people.
JANE: And so there’s a personal language that the Holy Spirit will teach us, but I believe that there’s very basic simple, step‑by‑step ways of understanding what the symbols mean. And we’ve got to remember, we have the mind of Christ, we have the Holy Spirit inside of us, and God’s not giving us something that’s too hard to do. It is actually quite easy when we open ourselves up and ask the Holy Spirit to lead us in that process.
SID: Give me one symbol to get an idea.
JANE: Okay. How about the symbol of a house. Jesus, you know, you see something happening inside your house. Jesus said that a house actually is not really about the house, it is about the man’s life. Okay. A man that built his house on the sand versus a man that built his house on a rock. So when I have a dream, I look at where it’s taking place. If it’s taking place in a house I know what’s happening in the house is something that’s happening inside my life. If I can give you a quick example.
JANE: We were remodeling our kitchen a few years ago, and I wanted to take the wallpaper out of my kitchen and just paint it yellow. But the problem was somebody that had put the wallpaper up originally put it there to last until Jesus returned because I could not get it off the wall. And so I went back and forth, and the paint store finally said, well, prime over the wallpaper and just paint. So I did exactly that. That night I had a beautiful yellow kitchen. Well, that night I had a dream. Because my previous wallpaper had fruit along the border and vines coming down the walls, and I was so done with the vines.
JANE: I just wanted a yellow kitchen. And so that night when I dreamed though, I was sitting in my beautiful new yellow kitchen when all of a sudden the vines started growing out from under the paint. And I said, oh, my God, what’s happening. Oh, my goodness. And the voice of the Lord said to me in the dream, He said, this is what happens when you just cover up the things that are too difficult for you to deal with, they grow back. Can you see how God used the symbol of the vine to represent, the scripture talks about the root of bitterness or the things that spring up and trouble you and defile many. And things perhaps in my life that maybe I just kind of pushed to the side, covered it up, pushed to the side when God said, listen, I need to go back and deal with those issues in your heart, otherwise they’re going to spring up and they’re going to trouble you and probably defile many. So God had me look at what was happening there and knew that it was something that God needed to deal with my heart about.
SID: Okay. The presence of God is so strong.
JANE: Yes, it is.
SID: Will you pray to stir up these gifts that we start dreaming?
SID: And just as a special favor, would you also pray that we have a lot of literal dreams?
JANE: I’ll see what I can do about that one. Okay. Well, Father, we thank You, Lord, that Your people are so hungry and so desirous to hear Your voice, Lord, whether it is in prophecy, in dreams or in visions where You speak to us in pictures. And, Lord, I pray right now, God, that you would begin to bring us to an awareness of what we’re dreaming. Help us remember our dreams. Help us record our dreams. Help us to receive the impartation and the revelation that comes to us in dreams. Activate our spirit man so that we can hear You clearly, Lord, and so that we understand that when You speak literally how we’re supposed to apply those messages and how we are to be doers of what You’re speaking. Lord, if it’s something symbolic, then I pray, Lord, that through the mind of Christ, through the Holy Spirit inside of us, Lord, that You will bring clarity to each and every single and that, Lord, You will blend the symbols together into a very clear message that will touch our hearts, but, more than that, Lord, that will change the world. I thank You, Father, that you’re raising up world changers, and if You said to the early church we needed the baptism of the Holy Spirit and the mantle of revelation with dreams, visions and prophecy, then, Lord, how much more do we need it today? And so, Lord, we cry out for that. Lord, we cry out for the revival that comes when we hear Your voice. We cry out for the harvest of souls, Lord, as You pour out Your spirit on all flesh. And I thank you, Lord, for raising up those, Lord, that don’t just hear You for themselves but also hear You so that many, many can be led to Christ. In Jesus’ name.
SID: And I had a vision as Jane was praying. There is someone that has joint problems anywhere in your body, I mean it started at the head, anything you need. There’s even someone that every joint is hurting them. If you will just kind of shake and say, Jesus, thank you, all of the joint problems, fingers, elbow, every joint that you need, you’re free in Yeshua’s name.
SID: I kind of like this idea. When you sleep the gifts of the spirit operate. Tell me about someone that was healed while they were sleeping.
JANE: Well, I have a friend that actually had a dream. When he went to bed he had actually had a torn Achilles, and that night he dreamed that he was in a healing meeting, that somebody called out a word of knowledge and prayed for him, and in the dream he was healed. And when he woke up the next day he was 100% whole.
SID: And you know what? You don’t even have to have any faith. It is all done for you in the dream. I like that deal. All right. What if I’ve had this, you’ve had this, you’ve had this, you have something bad happening to yourself or a family member, does it have to happen if you’ve had this dream?
JANE: Absolutely not. I believe that God gives warning dreams. That’s where my whole journey with dreams started, because I had a dream about my brother that he got very sick and died. And in my dream it seemed so real that I thought that it had actually happened. And when I woke up I laid there thinking, was that real or was that a dream. And I realized that it had been a dream and I began to comfort myself saying, oh, it was only a dream, it was only a dream. And I heard the voice of God say to me loudly, it is not just a dream, get up and pray. And so as I got up and I prayed for my brother, eventually I felt a peace and went back to bed. The next morning my mother called me to say that my brother the night before was on a deep woods camping trip when his appendix ruptured, and by the time they got him in from the woods he actually almost died but he was going to live, and I believe it’s because God woke me up to intercede for him.
SID: Well, you know.
JANE: One of many stories.
SID: There are different sources of dreams, types of dreams. Do you ever deal with children that have nightmares?
JANE: Yes. I was a child that had nightmare, and my children had nightmares. And a nightmare can either be God trying to get your attention, because not every dream is from God, but neither is every nightmare from the devil because God gave Abimelech a dream in Genesis chapter 20 when he had taken Abraham’s wife Sarah as he’d said, she’s my sister. Okay. And it says in that verse God came to him at night in a dream and said, Abimelech, you’re a dead man. Okay. This is not a happy dream. Okay. This is probably a nightmare.
SID: I would call it a nightmare.
JANE: So sometimes God will give us a nightmare get our attention, I believe, like He did with my brother. Okay. He gave me a nightmare to get my attention so that I would pray. But when it’s a demonic dream, I believe that we can stand against the demonic force. We can believe that the blood of Jesus breaks the power of every demonic thing. As a matter of fact, I’m going to pray right now that if you’re being tormented by demonic dreams, I just declare to you right now that the Lord Himself is rising up. And it declares in the scripture that He gives His beloved sweet sleep, and I break the power of every demonic assignment to torment you, to harass you and to afflict you at night in your dreams. In Jesus’ name I break the power of it and I decree sweet sleep, in Jesus’ name.
SID: Do you know what I want? I want Jane to pray to activate you into dreams from God where He’s going to show you the things you’re questioning. He has such marvelous, good plans for you. I don’t want you to miss one. I’ll have her pray when we come back. Don’t go away.
SID: What happens if you’re speaking and you think you hear a word? No, you do hear a word. It’s “coffee”. What do you do with this word? What did you do with that word, Joan?
JOAN: It’s so fun prophesying and hearing the voice of God, and trying to determine exactly where you go from here on this word. And I’m in the pulpit, and I’m like, God, you want me to say “coffee”? I mean, come on, coffee, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah.
SID: You could talk yourself out of that very easily.
JOAN: Easy. I mean, come on, I’m right in the middle of a healing service and you’re telling me to do coffee? And so, I’ve got to give this word, because sometimes you just get a word. But if you step out and say the word, God will give you the rest. And so I get up in the pulpit and I say, I literally said the word. I said, “I have a word for somebody. It’s coffee.” And then kind of in the back, this couple breaks out wailing and crying, “Oh my God!” And then at that point, they go, right after that I said, then God gives me more, ‘The coffee has been stolen and God is getting ready to restore something to do with coffee.” In their inheritance, they received all these coffee plantations that had just been taken away from them, and I prophesied it was going to be coming back. And before the weekend was over they had full ownership of the plantations again.
SID: I imagine everyone was listening intently to your words after that.
SID: But here’s the amazing thing. Heaven is drawing so close to Earth right now, that if people would just begin to prophesy, I think many people, everyone can prophesy, many people that will start prophesying will move like prophets just because of where we are in history. That’s my thought.
JOAN: Everything is on acceleration, which is true. And the thing is, is like the word “coffee” really didn’t mean anything to me. But just remember, the word is not for you, it’s for you to give it to somebody else.
SID: Now one of the things that you teach is if you want to start somewhere prophesying, start with Scripture. Explain that.
JOAN: Just get in front of the mirror and start prophesying. What areas of your life do you need more help? Do you need help in the area of finances? Deuteronomy 1:11, “Today God is going to make you a thousand times more numerous than he already blessed you just like he promised you.” That’s awesome.
SID: Excuse me. I don’t think people caught that right now. Do you know what she is doing? She’s prophesying from the most certain prophesy the world has ever known, the written Word of the Living God. No wonder she has such confidence. I just want to make sure they’re catching it because what she’s doing it’s easy for you to do.
JOAN: That’s right. God wants to point to you as an example of his incredible wealth, of his favor and kindness in all he’s done for you through Christ Jesus. Everybody wants to hear that word. Number one, you just heard it. Number 2, it’s Ephesians 2, Verse 7. See, and God points to me as an example of his incredible wealth. Broke, I’m not broke. Praise God. Not because of the quarters on the ground either. But God once pointed to me and said, incredible wealth, favor. I have favor. I have favor with the supernatural. I have favor wherever I go. And he wants to point to me because everything that he has done for me, he has healed me from the top of my head, soles of my feet, healed me in my heart, given me a brand new heart, had an echocardiogram earlier this year. The doctor was absolutely amazed. He says, “I have never seen such a strong heart and strong heartbeat, especially somebody your age.” I have a new heart.
SID: You know what, Joan, right at this moment, I know some people that need some new hearts.
JOAN: New hearts, yes.
SID: That are watching us right now. I believe that Joan is going to prophesy, and this is a whosoever. If you’re a whosoever that needs this word from the written words of the Living God, it is yours. Do you need a new heart? Do you need your blood pressure reduced? Do you need your arteries unclogged? Time for Roto-Rooter.
JOAN: That’s right.
JOAN: Okay. Father, right now in the name of Jesus, I send the word of healing as the people are putting their hand on their heart. I send the word of healing for not only physical hearts, but emotional hearts. As mine has been completely healed, broken heart syndrome, gone. Father, I speak all the trauma to go, the stress to go, all the heartache, betrayal, every bit of it to go right now in Jesus’ name. And Father, right now, in the name of Jesus, we send the word of healing into every single physical heart. I command the blood pressure to return to normal, all the arteries to open up, Holy Ghost Roto-Rooter treatment. And Father, I speak, there’s somebody that’s got a problem in the left side of your heart that it’s actually currently painful. Father, right now in the name of Jesus, I speak that side of the heart to be released. Some of you have had strokes and heart attacks. Father, right now in the name of Jesus, I command the effect of all of that to go in Jesus’ name. There’s a lot of stress that has brought a lot of this on, even stress over finances. So Father, right now in the name of Jesus, the effect of stress on these bodies, I command it to be gone in Jesus’ name, I speak peace over their finances. I speak supernatural breakthrough in every area of their lives in Jesus’ name. Amen.
SID: Now I just heard two words as you were speaking. I heard there were people with back problems, you are healed. Neck problems, you are healed. And there’s some growths under your hair, they’re gone in Jesus’ name. Pray for an impartation, freely you’ve received, freely give a prophesy.
JOAN: Father, right now in the name of Jesus, I send the Word and the Anointing through the cameras right now Jesus’ name that they’re going to receive the knowledge, the wisdom, the revelation that has gone forth today, that they can prophesy. So Father, in the name of Jesus, we send a supernatural anointing and impartation of the prophetic in Jesus’ name.
SID: I believe your ears are open to a new level of anointing, a new place in the Spirit. Stop looking back. Press on. It’s a new beginning. It’s a breakthrough for you right now. Go for it. Go for the gold.
SID: The year 2000 was one over thick year for you. I mean, Joan went through a devastating divorce. Her husband went into the gay life. She’s responsible for her children. In 2000, she hit bottom, financially. Nothing. In addition to everything else, she develops cancer. Tell me about that.
JOAN: That’s a lot to put in about a minute. But yes, it was an absolutely horrible time in my life. Two days after the divorce, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. It taught me how to get healed and whole. And I went after God because the doctors gave me no hope. The CPA gave me no hope. The counselors gave me no hope. They said there’s no way you’re going to recover. And it was such a devastating time in my life. And so I would go before God and just say, “God, I can live without a breast, but I can’t live with a broken heart.” So I went after God to heal my heart and heal me of broken heart syndrome. And long story short, God healed me of worry, betrayal, abandonment, worry, I know I said it more than once, but it needs to be repeated ten times because I was worried what was going on. How would I ever make it if anything ever happened? And when I got free of all of that in my heart, I went back to talk to the oncologist, now what do we do? And so in the process of two hours on the examining table, they looked everywhere, left side, right side, everywhere, up, down, in between, on my back, everywhere that they could look and the cancer was gone.
SID: If God had not revealed to you what to do, how to handle it, do you believe you’d be here today?
SID: Give me an example of how you prophesied to yourself.
JOAN: I’m laying on the table and I’m thinking, I have four good reasons to live: Charity, Spice, Melody and Abigail, my girls. And as I’m laying there and I’m like, no, I’m going to live and not die, and I’m going to share the works of the Lord, today I choose life. And I started prophesying over my life that I’m going to live and not die, and declare the works of the Lord. I am healed.
SID: Do you say it with a vengeance or do you say, I’m going to live and not die. How do you say it? Give me an example of how you said it to yourself.
JOAN: I said it, I said, actually I went, “Bam! Bam! Bam! Bam! Wake up!”
SID: So you did it with an attitude.
JOAN: I had attitude in my faith and my mouth into alignment. No, I’m going to live and not die and do the works of the Lord. Now when I’m praying for people with cancer and they say, [mumbling], I say, oh no. I want you to say this: “I’m going to live. I choose life until I believe it.”
SID: Tell someone with cancer right now to do that, right now.
JOAN: Right now, I am prophesying over you that today is your day of turnaround. Today is your day for giving your cancer an eviction notice. It’s trespassing on God’s property and you are going to live and not die, and live to declare the works of the Lord. Hallelujah. Say, I receive. I receive. Repeat. I’m going to live and not die and declare the works of the Lord. I choose life. God is speaking to you. He’s speaking it to you in church services, as you’re listening. God, what should I give, whether in church, whether it’s supernatural. God is speaking to you and you can hear him say whatever amount he tells you.
SID: And you know what? When I think it’s God, I do it just in case. I don’t want to miss God. Do you? Tell me about the quarter you found.
JOAN: This is so exciting. I love this. And God speaks to natural things and he’ll give you a prophetic word. So when you have something happen in the natural, say, God, you want to speak to me about this. And but the other day I’m going through the security, and I’m on my way to Haiti and there’s a TSA agent like right there fully loaded with everything, all the badges and everything. And she’s right there. And so I look down. Right behind her is a quarter and I’m like, argh, there’s a quarter. It’s not a penny, it’s a quarter. I don’t need a quarter. I’m not broke by any means. But it’s just a fun thing to do. So I go down a little bit further and then there’s a penny. I thought, well at least I got a penny. It’s not a quarter, but at least I got a penny. I wasn’t going to mess with her. Can you see that I want to get the quarter? I’m not going to do that. So in a few minutes, literally in a matter of moments, they say, “Everybody stop.” Well if somebody says that and they’re an authority at the airport, your hands go up, yes, okay, I’m good. I’m not reaching for anything. Yes. They said, “All of you have to go back through.” So we went back through and she had moved. And I walked there and I thought, that quarter is mine. I was so excited that the quarter was mine. So I of course picked it up for fun, which is once again for fun. So I’m walking to the gate and I said, “God, what are you telling me?” Now this is for you, too. What are you telling me with that quarter and with the situation? He says, “There are many things that are hid from you, many things that you can’t get because of barriers, because sometimes you can’t even see them. There’s a blockage. There’s a dam, so to speak. But some of you could see, maybe an inheritance that had been stolen, inheritances that have been withheld from you.” He says, “But I’m clearing the way so that anything that you have lost, whether you know it or not, is going to come back to you. Inheritances are going to come to you.”
SID: If you will only believe all things including inheritances are yours. One word from God could result in a million dollars. In fact, Joan did this at a meeting and it resulted in many millions of dollars. We’ll be right back.
SID: Hello. Sid Roth here. Welcome to my world where it’s naturally supernatural. My guest Joan Hunter has opened her mouth and said one word and this one word has resulted in millions of dollars. Can I have her open her mouth for you now? I always love to have Joan Hunter as a guest because I go beyond Joan. I knew the Happy Hunters. Your parents literally had over a million healing miracles. They had, they used to call it healing explosions.
JOAN: Healing explosions.
SID: All over the world. I mean, it almost seemed the older they got, the more hunger they had to see the miraculous, and you had that same. You’re building on their shoulders. You’ve been in ministry, what, 45 years?
JOAN: Forty-five years now. Hard to believe.
SID: So for those that don’t know you and your parents, tell me one miracle that comes to mind.
JOAN: Oh that’s really hard. But in regards to the overseas trips, I remember being with them in Bogota, Colombia, and all of a sudden, all these wheelchairs started coming up to the platform. To see all these coming it’s like, it was just like they kept passing them forward and there would be another row of them being passed forward. It was like, these people need their wheelchairs. No they don’t. I mean, just so many incredible things have happened and to see the millions of people that got the baptism of the Holy Spirit, millions of people that got saved.
SID: By the way, we need that again. You told me there is an increase of the supernatural all around you.
JOAN: All around, all around. Okay. Yes, where I’m concerned, I’m going into, I mean, incredible, incredible miracles are happening. I’m like shocked if somebody is not healed, and it’s like—
SID: Did you hear that?
JOAN: And what’s so awesome is that I pray and God has given me so many incredible words in regards to the area of healing that I lock the healings.
SID: That’s all part of prophecy.
JOAN: Yes it is. And it’s like I prophesy everybody in the room is going to get healed, and pretty much 99 percent of everybody, everybody in the room, are immediately they get healed. It’s absolutely amazing. Fibromyalgia, doctors can’t treat it. Cancer, cancers are falling off, all kinds of important things.
SID: Tell me something fresh. Tell me a miracle that’s recently happened.
JOAN: We’re going to dance all over the platform, on this one here. But I was recently in Arizona, and this lady came up to me, she had a 3000-pound piece of equipment fall on her head over 20 years ago. I can’t believe she’s alive. But what happened is this fell on her, it crushed all of the discs in her neck, busted a bunch of her vertebrae, then it went down in her neck, then it went down and destroyed a lot of her vertebrae and discs in her back. In addition to that, there was so much pain and pressure that it caused her head to actually compress. I don’t know how she survived. I really have no clue how she survived. And so I prayed for her and I put my hands on her neck. She didn’t have a C-curve, which is a natural thing you’re supposed to have. So I put my hands on her neck and I said, “In the name of Jesus, I command her C-curve to come back. I command all of the vertebrae in the neck and discs to be restored, and in the back, height to be restored.” Because if you get compressed you shrink. So she grew like three inches in front of me. Everybody around was going, wow! But her head had compressed. So I said, “In the name of Jesus, I command this head to return to the proper size.” And it went [brrr] right in my hands. That was awesome. That was, you can’t describe what happened to me.
SID: And you know what? That’s just the beginning.
JOAN: I know.
SID: We’re moving, I believe we’re moving into such creative miracles. Everyone knows about Joan Hunter’s healing ministry and miracle ministry. But when did this prophesying start?
JOAN: I’ve been actually prophesying for probably 15, 20 years, maybe even longer than that, not really knowing what it was. I would just hear something and I’m like, do you have a shoulder problem, which, yes, is the word of knowledge, but it’s still hearing, and all these different things, and it was just developing hearing the voice of God.
SID: You told me that your parents, as much as they knew, as experienced as they were, were in awe over the gift that God had given you.
JOAN: That’s because they have experienced the abuse of the prophetic. Like somebody walks up to you and says, “God told me that you’re to give me a computer.” No. No.
SID: I’ve had that happen.
JOAN: I have, too. And I go, “When God tells me to give you the computer, I’ll give you the computer.”
SID: The first few times I didn’t know that, and I just gave it.
JOAN: I’ve had, I don’t care. But it’s kind of funny. But 30, 40 years ago, people were really abusing it. And so it kind of got put on the shelf in the Christian world. And now God, over the last ten years, is bringing it back up, recognizing the prophets, recognizing the apostles, recognizing just plain, not just prophecy from the prophets, but honoring prophecy one on one.
SID: Well the fact is the average believer thinks that’s just for the fivefold gifted people, the people on TV, the superstars. But you say it’s not only for everyone, but it’s simple.
JOAN: And see, and that’s the prophet rather than prophesying. There’s a difference. A prophet is called to the nations. It’s called to the churches, whereas coming to prophesying, longing, desiring to prophesy is going to the grocery store and prophesying over that. And it’s like, I prayed, God, if you’re real, send somebody to give me a Word today, and that’s you. And that’s you. What an amazing opportunity we have here to speak on behalf of God, to share.
SID: You get pretty excited about that, don’t you?
JOAN: I get excited.
SID: I can’t think of anything more exciting than hearing God’s voice and being used by him. And the fact is it’s for everyone. Now when we come back, you’re going to find out how by understanding how to prophesy, which is for everyone, not only saved Joan’s life, but someday may save a loved one’s life. We’ll be right back.
