Sid Roth welcomes Bruce Van Natta

without comments

Sid:  My guest Bruce Van Natta, speaking to him at his home in Rudolph, Wisconsin. Just an everyday guy trying to make a living, trying to take care of his family is doing his job, he’s a heavy equipment mechanic, and did you have a premonition something like this horrible accident would happen to you that day Bruce?

Bruce:  That day, no, but the previous months going into this the Lord had spoken to me several times asking a question actually if I would die for the advancement of the kingdom.

Sid:  You must have thought that it was happening at that moment because this truck, well explain again what happened when the truck fell on you.

Bruce:  Well, the front axle of the truck is about two or three inches wide and you know four or five inches deep, and so it fell off of a jack and came down the only thing between it and the concrete was my body.  And so it came across me like a blunt guillotine across my midsection just below my ribs.  It just clipped a couple ribs on the left hand side and crushed me into the thickness of my spine because it went all the way through me, and even cracked two vertebrae in my spine.

Sid:  So you should have bleed to death internally.

Bruce:  Yeah.

Sid:  And the next thing you remember is you’re outside of your body looking at yourself, explain that.

Bruce:  Yeah, well I’m up in the ceiling and I’m just looking down and it was like I tell people that it was like watching a movie because that’s what it was like. It was just like a third party unassociated just watching a movie play out.  And I saw the man working with above me, I could hear him, he was running his fingers through my hair and crying and patting me on the head. He was talking to me and I could see clearly because I was right above and behind this just watching this.  But the you know the amazing thing this was the first image that’s burned in my mind, the amazing thing wasn’t that I’m having this out of body experience, but that on each side of myself is a large angel, and I mean these were big guys, they were also on their knees just like the man that I was working with, they were on their knees. I was looking from the back so they were facing my body.

Sid:  Now, why were they on their knees?

Bruce:  Well, they were on their knees and they had their arms… Now picture now my body still underneath this truck with just my heard sticking out from the front bumper.   They were on their knees on each side of my body with their arms angled in towards my body, and so the truck was already jacked up and so they weren’t holding the truck up, I’m still laying underneath the truck, they didn’t want to move me because of the injuries that I had and so I could see up to their elbows and I could tell that their arms were angled in towards my body.  And that’s was what I watching and seeing. So the angels were incredible, the man that I was working with a little over six feet tall, he was on his knees and on each side of him are these angels also on their knees and their heads stuck up at least a foot and a half taller than his head.  So now you factor in the longer femur because they’re on their knees. You know these angels had to be at least probably eight feet tall.

Sid:  And in your opinion what were they doing?

Bruce:  Well, I think what they were doing was keeping me alive because when the truck fell on me it severed my mesenteric artery along with a bunch of other veins. The doctors say that when you have an artery like that one of your main arteries severed along with these other veins I should have bleed to death in eight to ten minutes period.  Everybody else comes in dead on arrival in fact I was med flighted to the largest trauma center in our state, the state of Wisconsin. They told me there they had never had one other person ever live that has come in there with an injury like that because their always coming on dead on arrival because they bleed to death.  And so the angels had to be you know pinching those veins off, whatever they’re doing they were keeping me alive.

Sid:  So here you are, you’re flown to this trauma center; the doctors are amazed that you’re still alive.  What did they decide to do to you?

Bruce:  Well the first doctors, the guys in you know basically the night shift guys that were working when I came in there, they were taking CAT scans. Later on they told us that they were amazed because I ended up coming back, somebody called me back into my body. The Lord sent this EMT worker at the scene of the accident so I came back. My spirit went back into my body. She was referring and saying you’re going to half to fight, keep your eyes open and so I did.  I get to the trauma center, these guys are taking CAT scans and they can’t believe that my eyes are open and that I’m coherent because now almost two hours has passed, and this was something that the Lord did just to make a statement.  I should have bled to death in eight to ten minutes, and yet two hours passed from the point of the accident until they started operating.  These guys are checking me out and all of sudden everything started to get dim for me and they had been asking me two questions, what’s your name, what’s your birth date.  I was not able to respond, I couldn’t open my mouth and say anything, the Lord, everything started to get dim and all of sudden I blurted out, it just came out of me the Lord give me the strength to say it, if you don’t do something right now I’m going to die.  And they told me month later that when I said that, after I said that my blood pressure dropped to zero, and they were really low already and they’d been putting you know I don’t know how many, I can’t remember how many units of blood they put in me but it would just leak out internally into my stomach cavity.  After I said that, they pulled me out of the cat scan machine and ran me to the you know next store to the operating room, but it was just amazing to them that I blurted that out after not being able to say my name.

Sid:  And then immediately your blood pressure goes down.

Bruce:  Exactly.

Sid:  Okay, they rush you to the emergency surgery.

Bruce:  Yeah, they open me up and it was all so mangled, everything was so mangled that all they did was they hooked up the veins and the arteries and that’s it. They didn’t touch anything else and they came out and they told my mom and my wife and some of the other people that had gathered at the hospital that they didn’t expect me to live.  And because they didn’t expect me to live they weren’t going to do all these other operations, they just hooked up my veins, my arteries, the mesenteric artery they put back together and other vein that were severed.  They hooked up and said, you know what if he’s alive in six hours then we’ll go and do some more operation.  Well, I was alive in six hours, they still didn’t think I was going to live so they waited eight hours and then it stretched out.  And then it was ten hours and then after ten hours the doctor came and told my wife, “Well, his heart is beating like a twenty year old kid that’s running a marathon, and we’re going to in there and we’re going go in there and we’re going to do some work.”  So they over the next period of a week they did you know multiple operations. They put me in an induced coma and they did these operations just one at a time as my body was able to handle it I guess.

Sid:  Now they cut out of your body a portion of your small intestine, explain that.

Bruce:  They told me that an adult has eighteen to twenty feet of small intestine, and when they got done all that was left in me was roughly a hundred and six, they wrote down in the records.  A hundred and six centimeters of small intestines so roughly…

Sid:  Can someone live with that?

Bruce:  Well, at they see that a hundred centimeters is the breakpoint when you read the studies and you check into it a hundred centimeters if the breakpoint, below a hundred centimeters you starve to death slowly.

Sid:  So you should have starved to death slowly.

Bruce:  Well, I was at 106, so they were happy, they made sure to tell me look you got more than a 100 so they were happy about that, but after a few months a chunk died, they have to do another operation and they removed roughly a 25 centimeter portion of my small intestine. Now at that point I had 75 centimeters, 80 centimeters is what the range of what they said I had left.  Now at that point you’re going to starve to death eventually, you are going to die even with shots and what they call prental feeding through IV which I did have for like months.

Sid:  Now God spoke to a man in New York by the name of Bruce Carlson about you, did you know this man previously?

Bruce:  I had met him one time on vacation a year before this. He’s a friend of a friend is what he is.

Sid:  What did God tell him and what did he do?

Bruce:  Well, he woke up one morning, the Lord woke him up one morning and told him that he was to fly to Wisconsin and pray for me and so he did.  He bought a ticket and you know how short term quick tickets are, they’re expensive and so it was like $900 ticket. He paid for it, he flies out and came to the hospital after I just had another section of small intestine removed.  And he came into the room with another friend of mine from church and actually two friends of mine from church.  They drove him down there and this hospital is a ways from my house here you know our way or whatever.  And he sang some praise and worship songs after that, he just put his palm on my forehead and he started praying and he said, “Lord, I pray today that all of the prayers for all the people that have been praying for Bruce over the last you know months, period of time I pray answer all of those prayers today Lord God.”  And I was on prayer chains all over the country, I mean there were hundreds if not thousands of people for me to live and so he just prayed that the Lord would answer all those prayers.  And after he said that, then he spoke to the mountains you know per say and he said, “Small intestine I command you to grow supernaturally in the name of Jesus Christ.

Sid:  Because if your small intestine did not grow medically speaking you would have starved to death.

Bruce:  Correct, yes.

Sid:  Is it possible for in the natural for a small intestine to grow out again?

Bruce:  No.  I’ve been told there is no such thing, it does not happen, there’s no they can’t record any.

Sid:  So the million dollar question is how big is your small intestine now?

Bruce:  Well, it went from two and a half feet to over six feet. When he prayed over me as soon as he said, “That I command it in the name of Jesus Christ,” and he was praying about all those prayers being answered. I felt like what seemed like electrity is the only way I could describe it come out of his palm into my forehead into my body and I turned to Brian a guy from my church that was on the left side of my bed.  I turned to him and said, “Man it feels like a snake just came uncoiled inside of my stomach.”  But I just put it up on the shelf.

Sid:  So what did the doctor’s say about this thing that’s impossible.

Bruce:  Yeah, I put that up on the shelf and I didn’t think much of it accept a couple of months went by and I had to go in and have some pretests done for another operation. It was during those pretests at the radiologist that they did that they found that the intestine had grown from two and a half fee to over six feet.  And so keep in mind the doctor that performed my operations that the majority of my operations is the chief resident surgeon, he’s the head of the whole hospital, the head of the trauma center.  And so when the radiologist did the test and then he went and got his supervisor and he did a test. Then I realized that they did the test over and what they were doing was they were inspecting my small intestine.  Well I’m listening to them talk and their going and checking paper for records, they’re checking my records and paper. They’re going to computer and checking and they kept saying well, there must be a mistake.  And what they were having a hard time figuring out was why the chief, the head guy the top dog how he could make multiple mistakes because he’s not the kind of guy that makes mistakes at all.  And they couldn’t figure out why in one spot he wore 106 and then the next spot he puts 75 or 80.

Sid:  I’ll tell you what were out of time right now we can figure why.
