Sid: Well, I just got a hold of a CD that was done for us exclusively for a period of time and it’s by Julie Meyer. And she is a Worship Leader at IHOP International House of Prayer, not pancakes. And Julie I have to tell you I’m a feeling kind of person and I feel something on your music. I have felt peace on other artist’s music before but yours is a different type of peace the most calming peace that I’ve ever…it’s almost like a Psalmist is on a frequency and I’m trying to come up with words in English to describe the frequency that you’re on. What would you describe the frequency you’re on from heaven.

Julie: I don’t know I think part of it is I love to sing the word and when you sing the word those words are alive I mean, they’re alive on the inside. And it has to bring about peace and it has to bring hope because that’s what His word does.

Sid: Well I have to believe and you must have reports of people that have said to you how much peace your music brings them.

Julie: Absolutely, absolutely I have that happen frequently. In fact I started getting emails from counselors that and I love this they said that they put on my CD and they put it on in their waiting room and they made their clients just set there in the presence. Because a CD can carry presence, it’s the word with music and there were several of the counselors. And I get these 2 or 3 times a year and they said that the anger, the offense, the bitterness, it was as if it was washed away when they were setting in this room just listening to the music because it’s the word being sung.

Sid: Well, I have to tell you I’m personally using it for my own soaking music and I am loving it. Now for those that don’t know you I’ll tell a little bit about your background. You had an alcoholic mom and you had a piano and your only peace and solace you could find when you were sad is to retreat and to play that piano. Did it bring you peace when you did that?

Julie: It did I didn’t know the Lord you know when I was young but I ran to the piano and I loved to sing old hymns. And the one hymn that I would sing over and over was “Sweet hour of Prayer, sweet hour of prayer” and I don’t know I just loved the hymn and that became my shelter, the piano it became my refuge and my shelter until many years later when I ran into Jesus.

Sid: Well first you ran into and I can’t I’ll never forget this because it’s the same last name as mine but we’re not related the Roth twins. And you were in a competition of music statewide music competition and they were really begging you to come to Bible studies and they wanted you saved. And you said “If I win this contest I will go.” Did you think you have a chance of winning?

Julie: No. They were Lynette and Jeanette Roth and we all took piano lessons from the same teacher Mrs. Wilson in Wamego, Kansas.

Sid: Hm.

Julie: And we went to these competitions every year and I kind of thought the twins were weird you know, they were identical I could never tell them apart and they both loved music. And I was actually it was third year to go, each year you would either pass and go on to the next year or you would get eliminated. And it was my third year and whoever won like would go to the State. And I remember they were bugging me the whole trip, “Come to Bible study.” And really to get them off of my case I said “You know what if I win I will go to your Bible study” because I knew that I wouldn’t. I was a Junior in High School and there were Musical Majors that were at a Sophomore in college that were there and it was the whole state of Kansas. And I didn’t play that well, I mean I played okay and I went and I sat down by my music teacher and she was nice but she patted my leg and she goes “Well, you could have done better.”

Sid: Hm.

Julie: Because I used to get so nervous when I played the piano you know, I used to make my mother I’d say “Please make fried chicken.” And I would get my hands all greasy and then I would practice my Beethoven and my Bach and my Brahms because if I could play it with greasy fingers then if I got nervous and my fingers sweat I knew that I could play it for the competition. But the funny thing is is that I won the musical division and I remember they said “The first certificate award goes to Julie Soupy” that was my maiden name. And then I won the whole competition I mean of every single musician that was at this I won and I knew I didn’t play that well. And I set there going “I think I think God wants me to go to Bible study and I went.”

Sid: And how long after that did you get saved?

Julie: I got saved that night I mean when I went to Bible I always believed in Jesus I just didn’t know that I needed a personal relationship with Him. My prayers were mostly “God, if you will answer this I promise I’ll never pray again, I’ll never bug you again.” And that was my prayer life and of course He loves the sound of our voice. He loves when we pray, He loves when we talk to Him. But I went right home and I asked Him to come into my life and you know it’s been great, I mean I never backslid, I just was in, I was in in the whole commitment and I love Him more today gosh years later than I would have ever thought imaginable.

Sid: Now you were in a historic meeting some one that is now in heaven right now a Prophet by the name of Bob Jones prophesied a 24 hour House of Prayer which later became known as IHOP International House of Prayer. And you were at that historic first meeting but the thing that intrigues me even more than that is you cried out for about 4 years for God to give you dreams and visions. Why did you even have that prayer?

Julie: You know I just wanted to know Him I mean I just wanted to see Him. I have amazing friends and they were always telling me about their encounters and their dreams and I was just hungry to know Him. And I just remember sitting down one day saying “I don’t just don’t want to sign up that after I die I meet You, I want to meet You on this side.” And it was just a hunger that I just wanted to know Him.

Sid: Now in addition to being a Worship Leader in addition to this hunger you also were a soccer mom with 3 boys. And out of curiosity they’re people listening to us right now and they’re being pulled apart as soccer moms and housewives and they got so much to do how were you able to carve out that time?

Julie: You know I have 3 boys my husband and myself. My husband and I have 3 boys we have Isaac and then we have identical twins also.

Sid: Double trouble, oh double blessing (Laughing.)

Julie: Double blessings, the blessings of the Lord can be hard sometimes though. And when I had my twins I couldn’t go anywhere for 2 years. Everything shut down and there was no web stream and no any…you know nothing then. But you know what really helped me I love this because ever since 1983 that’s when I was at the prayer meeting with Bob Jones and Mike Bickle and Bob began to prophesy about the day where the Lord would raise up 24-7 Houses of Prayer. But what I always did is I would take scripture and maybe it was just 2 scriptures and I would take it and I would pray it, I would, and then I would sing it.

Sid: You know I just thought when I read that in your book I just started doing that I would never sing scripture. But the reason that really clicked with me was because as an evangelist years ago I used to have long healing lines I don’t do that now I operate primarily through words of knowledge and I found something amazing when I would sing over someone they would…the anointing would go into them stronger then when I would speak over someone. I don’t understand it and then if you’re singing scripture you can’t get any stronger than that.

Julie: No, that’s right.

Sid: But you understand that maybe you can help me, why is it singing of scripture seems to be more powerful than speaking of scripture?

Julie: It is powerful and when I studied the life of David, King David that I love and the most dire of circumstances he would always write “I will sing to the Lord a new song.” And when you study him it is said of King David that he went to war with a sword in his hand and a song on his lips and I love that. There is something about singing and the reason is your ears have to hear your sound too that’s when it just gets written upon your heart.

Sid: I have good news for everyone listening can’t carry a tune so if I can do it you have no excuses okay.

Julie: Exactly, we’re all supposed to make a joyful noise unto the Lord anyway.

Sid: Julie, tell me about the song “God is Alive” I want to start with that from you’re a…we have the 2 CD albums one is brand new and we have it on exclusive basis. And your brand new book “Dreams and Supernatural Encounters.” And I don’t know what feedback you’re getting but I can tell you that I know what happened to me. And this is what my staff is telling me they are telling me that they actually feel that there in your dreams and visions and the messages you have from God there not just for you they’re for them. It’s just like God was giving it just to them, have you heard that before?

Julie: That’s the main testimony that I hear from every single person that they will email me or write me just personal letters and say “I felt like I was in the dream when I was reading it.” And “The emotional pain that I was walking through as I began to read the dream and just see a new facet and understand the love that Jesus has for us that suddenly it was as if that pain and that sting was washed away because they saw the truth of who Jesus is.”

Sid: Tell me about the song “God is Alive.”

Julie: “God is Alive” I wrote when I was with my friend Joshua Mills.

Sid: I’ve interviewed Joshua, he’s the one that has all of that gold dust and plays the piano.

Julie: He does and it happens all the time! And he was preaching a sermon and he was going “God is alive” and he was saying “Hallelujah I must praise Yah.” And it was almost coming out of his mouth. His sermon was as if it was coming out like a song. And I just began to write down his words but as I’m writing them I can hear a melody. And I literally and Joshua will probably remember this when he was done with his message I went up and I sang the song.

Sid: Let’s hear it right now! “God is Alive.” (0.14.53 – 0.19:24)

God is alive, it’s too late to tell me God is not alive, it’s too late to tell me Jesus isn’t the Messiah I know Him! “This is eternal life that you might have experiential knowledge of God through Jesus, this is eternal life.” I want everyone everywhere to know Him. And I recently got back from a trip to Israel and I had this is unprecedented 500 unsaved Jewish people came out to a lecture on the supernatural. And I’m going to tell you miracles occurred and the majority of them stood up and made professions of faith, unprecedented, unheard of in Israel. Don’t you tell me God isn’t alive, it’s too late! And I’m going to tell you something else we’re coming into something pretty trying times on planet earth but God is alive and this book “Dreams and Supernatural Encounters” by Julie Meyer is going to change your understanding of the invisible realm. I believe that her dreams and visions are messages from God on how to have intimacy with Him no matter what is going on in your life and if you have intimacy with God you have everything. And then the 2 CD’s trust me the peace, the tranquility that it’s going to bring in your life. The 2 CD’s one of them is a brand new exclusive soaking CD….When we come back I want to find out a lot more about singing scripture.
