With your host Sid Roth

Our Guest Steven Zarit

without comments

Sid:  My guest by way of telephone is another Jewish man that is red hot for Jesus. The more I hear about him the more I see myself and the more I see myself and the more that you hear about Steven Zarit the more you’re going to understand Jewish people.  Because we are at the set time to favor Zion; we are at the moment where spiritual scales are coming being removed from the eyes of Jewish people.  Why?  So that God can once more have mercy on Jewish people.  Why?  So that ancient Jewish anointing will merge with the New Covenant Christian Anointing to form the One New Man to reach the rest of the Gentiles.  It’s so wonderful God’s master plan and this is the moment in History in which Jewish people are more open to the gospel than ever before.  And that’s why you must listen to how God dealt with Steven Zarit.  Steven you were born and raised in Los Angeles; you come from a reformed Jewish background.  I have to tell you though Steven my father said, “Reformed wasn’t even Jewish, we came from an Orthodox Jewish background.  And then when I became a believer in Jesus he said, “Reformed looks pretty good, why don’t you consider being reformed.”  Ha-ha.

Steven:  [Laughing]

Sid:  But any way you like myself you gravitated to the supernatural not knowing the difference between God and the devil and you were into the metaphysical and reading books.  I understand you were into Edgar Casey; I was into him too.

Steven:  I was very much into Edgar Casey and I even tried laying on a couch and leaving my body and seeing if I could go somewhere else the way that Edgar Casey did it.  I read the teaching of Don Juan by Carlos Castaneda.  I had long hair, I was a hippy; had a long beard, I smoked a lot of marijuana; I even smoked marijuana and read these books by Edgar Casey. There was something in me there was a driving force in me that wanted to know that there had to be something more to life.

Sid:  What didn’t make sense to me is that you were into the New Age but at the same time you started watching people like Ernest Ansley on television. What did you see and what did you think when you saw these various Christians that were praying for the sick?

Steven:  Yes, I saw Ernest Ansley, I saw Leroy Jenkins, as a matter of fact I just went on the internet last night and Leroy Jenkins is still out there praying for the sick and the Lord’s using him to heal the sick.  It was like the devil put blinders on my eyes not to even consider Yeshua haMashiach; not to consider Jesus as my Savior; not to consider Jesus as the one that…

Sid:  Yeah but didn’t it bother you that these people were praying in the name of Jesus and getting healings and miracles?

Steven:    Yes, it bothered me, and then I started getting… I think the Lord felt that I needed an extra kick in the rump because he started bringing a baby Christian in my office.

Sid:  What were you doing for a living at that time?

Steven:  I was the Vice President of a big publishing, direct mail publishing house called the South Coast Shopper.  And that was 1965, and I had this salesman who was brand new in the Lord, a baby Christian. He came in my office and told me he was driving around Anaheim his territory and God literally spoke to him audibly in his mind and said, “I want you to go back to the Art Department and I want you to pray for Steven Zarit.”  And I told him I said, “Come on, the God who spoke the world into existence you mean the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the God of Moses, the God of David, the God of Solomon.”  Because I had read parts of the Bible and I had gone to Hebrew school, but it never clicked, nothing ever clicked in my life. So he said, “Yes, that God.”  What? He wants you to pray for me?  And he said, “Yeah.”  So I said, “No, I don’t think so, I don’t think so, I know what you’re going to tell me Jim that you were an alcoholic six months you told me that.  You told me that you walked forward at a Christian non-denominational Christian Church called Calvary Chapel in Costa Mesa, California and God delivered you of your addiction to alcohol.”  I said, “You know to be honest with you I happen to like smoking marijuana I don’t want to be delivered from smoking marijuana.?  And he said, “Well, just let me pray for you,” I said “No, that’s all right.” So about the third or forth time he came into my office I kicked him out of the office and I saw him leave and as he was leaving outside in the parking lot he was raising his hands in the air and he was talking.  He looked like he was talking to himself, I realize now that he was praying and he was probably praying “Oh God I got a Jewish man on the line here; Lord please bring this guy into the kingdom.”  I didn’t know what he was praying but he was praying something.  And I tooked at him and he was smiling and he was laughing, and even though I was making a lot of money I was miserable. I said, “You know God, if you really are there, if you really are God Jehovah, then I want what that guys got.  Well, about three or four days later he came into my office again and he said, “I was in Anaheim again and God is adamant He wants me to pray for you, I said, “Okay, I give up pray for me, what do you want me to do?”  He said, “I want you to take your chair and I want you to put it in the middle of your office, I had a very large office and I had a sofa in there and a loveseat.  And I put my chair in the middle of my office and he starts praying in tongues. Now I didn’t really know too much about tongues, but I had been watching TV a lot lately and watching these healers on TV and seeing them speaking in tongues.  Didn’t know at all what it meant but I thought it was a little bizarre but anyway I let him speak in tongues. Then he touched my left foot and as he touched my left foot this power that I could only describe as like a rocket jet taking off, and this heat this massive heat I started to perspire, and this massive heat went up my left leg and down my right leg into the trunk of my body and into my arms and my face.  And to be honest with you I was frightened because doing drugs over the counter drugs, and smoking marijuana I was always in control and I like to be a person that was in control.  And here he was just touching my foot and all of a sudden I’m not in control and all of a sudden it scared me, I started just perspiring all over the place. Then the next thing that happened within five or six seconds the heat dissipated and this joy that I can’t even put into the English language this joy just went right through my body and I started to laugh hysterically.  And the next thing I know I found myself on the floor face down and I was laughing so hard I was getting cramps in my cheeks.  I was saying, “Do you realize what you are saying?”  I was saying, “Thank you Jesus, I love You Jesus, thank You Jesus, I love You Jesus.”  And the next thing I know I see a visible hand in front of my face and it held up it’s thumb and it’s fore finger, and I heard an audible voice in my head and the voice said, “This is all the love that I’m giving you right now because if I were to give you any more you would surely die.”  And I was just, I was dumb founded, I was so happy and to be honest with you the first thing I thought was this is phenomenal and it doesn’t cost me anything, it’s free!!

Sid:  [Laughing]

Steven:  And the next thing I know I look up at Jim and I say “Jim, what’s happening to me?”  And I’m with the belly laughing and the sweating, and everything.”  And he said, “You just got baptized in the Holy Spirit.”  And I said, “I got baptized in the Holy what?”

Sid:   [Laughing]

Steven:  He said, “You just got baptized in the Holy Spirit.”  Do you have a Bible at home?  And I said, “Yes, I have a Bible at home.”  He said, “Then go ahead and read the Gospel of John and the Book of Acts.”  And I went home and I was like 2:00 in the afternoon, I had a lot of work to do but I was so in love with humanity.  I can’t even, I can’t put it into words, I loved everybody on the face of the earth; the Lord just gave me this incredible love for everyone.  And all I wanted to do was to tell everybody that Jesus was the Son of God and that He died for my sins.

Sid:  Now, I want you to pay attention Mishpochah Steven has now just become normal. Are you normal, are you in a congregation of normal people?  I tell you what Steven is describing is exactly what the scriptures say happened at Shavuot or Pentecost.
