SID: Hello. Sid Roth here. Welcome. Welcome to my world where it’s naturally supernatural. If I was to ask you how many of you know for certain what your destiny is, what you’re supposed to be doing with your life, and I don’t care if you’re 70 years old or seven years old, here’s the truth, most of you would say I’m not sure. How many of you would like to be sure? You see, your destiny is like your fingerprint. No one that has ever lived has the same fingerprint like you have. You have a destiny. How many of you want to know for sure, for certain, what your destiny is? All right, you’re about ready to have it supernaturally unfolded. Now James Durham was a spirit-filled Army chaplain for 30 years. But I asked you last night, there was a specific time when you had your breakthrough in the supernatural because believe it or not, just because your spirit-filled doesn’t mean you’re really moving in the supernatural and all that God has available to you. Tell me what caused your breakthrough.

 

JAMES: Immediately after getting the baptism of the Holy Spirit in 1969, I began to have a lot of visions, words of knowledge, words of wisdom, and I operated in that a lot. But it was much later than that, I was in a revival and someone stood up and said, “I visited Heaven last night,” and described the visit. And I thought, hey, that sounds pretty cool. And that night, I went home. It was very, very late. I got back to my room. And as I was getting ready to get into bed I said, you know, it would be really neat to be able to have a visit in Heaven. That was the extent of my prayer for this to happen. I laid down on the bed and as soon as my head hit the bed, the pillow, I was standing in Heaven, standing before the throne of Jesus, and I was just completely awestruck. But as I looked at Jesus, I couldn’t think, I couldn’t speak, but I just fell in love. And something happened in my heart. It was like a transformation came to me when that happened. And from that time on it became a very regular thing to visit with the Lord in Heaven and very often to go to a training room where he was training me on how to activate some of the things that he was releasing to me. And he told me very clearly, “These are not just for you. I want these to be testimonies for other people so that they will also be activated in those things.”

 

SID: Now you had a vision recently and Jesus himself said that everyone has to hear this vision. Well I’m everyone. Tell me.

 

JAMES: Well it was a very, I guess it was kind of a startling vision, I would say, and I was suddenly lifted up into the presence of the Lord and I saw myself, it was like I was outside of myself looking at myself, and I was kneeling before the Lord with the left knee on the floor and my right on the floor, kind of like a knight kneeling before his king. And I was kneeling before Jesus, and I had this, what I call my cloak of humility. It’s a really, old worn out kind of brownish cover, and I really liked that, because you got to be humble before the Lord. And I was kneeling before him, worshiping the Lord. And suddenly the Lord said, “Hey, would you like to see how I see you?” Well I wasn’t sure because just like everyone else I began to think of past mistakes, things that I should have done that I didn’t do, and I wasn’t sure if I really wanted to see that. But if the Lord asks I’ve learned you say yes. So I said yes. And when I did, the Lord sort of stepped over to the left side and he had a rod in his hand, a staff, and he began to pull that cloak back slowly from the staff, and I was absolutely stunned at what I saw. When the cloak began to come off of me I was wearing a helmet and full armor like a knight in the Round Table. But the armor was gold and it was pure gold, and it was shining, and I realized it was the light of the Glory of Yeshua that was reflecting off of that armor. And has he pulled more and more back, I really got into kind of fear because I do not want to get into pride, because I think pride will block you from really encountering the Lord. And this, I thought if I keep seeing this I might get into pride.

 

SID: Proverbs says, “Pride comes before a fall.” I don’t want to fall.

 

JAMES: Be humble before the Lord and he will lift you up. So I actually asked the Lord, “Don’t show me anymore and to put the cloak back.” And the Lord did what I asked. And this was so startling, and I thought I can’t tell anyone this vision because it will sound to prideful. I didn’t even tell my wife that I had this experience. But then the Lord began to press on me that I needed to share this vision with other people because he wants other people to see how he sees them. He doesn’t see you for past mistakes, failures or whatever. He sees what you are created to be. He sees you as if you’ve already reached your destiny and accomplished your purpose for the Kingdom on Earth. That’s how he sees you right now. Right now he’s seeing you as someone who has already completed that and he wants you to understand that.

 

SID: Wait. If that’s true, my experience and I know your experience is, most people go their whole life and they say, well I’m not in the Bible ministry. I’m just supposed to be a parent, a spouse, make money and die. But you maintain that God has his fingerprint that is so unique, a destiny so unique. Why is it most people, if you ask them, do you really know your purpose, do you really know your destiny, and they’re honest, they usually say no?

 

JAMES: That’s been my experience. And I think that’s why the Lord wants to activate this in people right now, is we have been, unfortunately, we’ve been taught in the church that for a long time, didn’t see the possibilities, but they kind of focused on limitations. And a lot of things were taught that just really aren’t biblical. They’re not in accordance with what God intends for us, and as a result, many of us are filled with self-doubt. Some of us are into self-condemnation and we just can’t see or grasp how far the Lord wants us to go or how high he wants to elevate us to his anointing. But in this season, because we’re in these last days and because it’s a time for the End Time harvest, I believe, that everybody who is a believer and is spirit-filled needs to be activated to accomplish their purpose for the Kingdom. God chose you to live in this generation for his purpose.

 

SID: And I’ll tell you what, I wouldn’t want to live in any other generation. This is the generation of the wrap-up. Why would you want to live in any other generation than this? And everyone counts. Everyone must fulfill their destiny. And according to James and according to the Bible, God wants to activate your spiritual senses, your sealed gifting, and I want to find some practical ways on how you can do it. Be right back.
