SID: I have Carlie Terradez here. Carlie, you were not raised in a Christian home, but at 14 you went to heaven.

CARLIE: I did. I did.

SID: Tell me about it.

CARLIE: Well, at the time I had just chronic asthma and I’d had a really serious asthma attack and landed myself in intensive care. And during that time there I actually died and had an out of body experience. Now I wasn’t raised in a Christian home so I didn’t have the language for it. But in that moment I remember looking down on myself, looking at the doctors working on me, shining their torches in my eyes, their flashlights and just being moved, kind of like I was floating, really. Just kind of floated through a doorway in the hospital room there and just really entered a long, long, bright light and just felt just love and peace.
But as I was traveling down that hallway in then, in towards the light, I felt drawn to the side to some large gates. And as I was standing in front of these huge golden gates and a figure appeared in front of me. And that was the first time when I noticed that I had on a white robe. It wasn’t a hospital robe, it was a white robe with my bare feet and standing in front of me, it was a figure that put his… he just put his finger on my chin and lifted my head up to his face. And his face just shines so bright. And I didn’t realize then that I was meeting Jesus. I didn’t have the words to describe that. He just, he knew me. He knew everything about me and he said to me, “It’s not time. It’s not your time.” And I woke up and I was back in the hospital bed.

SID: And this, she now has just a passionate, something inside of her just to find this one that exuded such love. But she started looking because she had no paradigm on Christianity. She started looking into the new age and got deeper and deeper into…not the same thing. And so she cries a desperate prayer. What happened?

CARLIE: I just said, “God, if you’re real, I need to know and I need to know you’re real.” And the doorbell rang and I ran downstairs and opened the door and there was a vicar standing there with his black shirt and the white dog collar on.

SID: A vicar is like a priest.

CARLIE: A priest. Yeah, priest from the Anglican church. And he was standing there with a tract in his hand and it had a big red question mark on it. It said, “Why Jesus?” And he didn’t even get a word out. I just snatched that booklet from his hand and slammed the door in face. I just knew that was my answer. And I ran upstairs to my bedroom and I read all the way through it and I accepted Christ, prayed the prayer salvation on the back and just felt the presence of God.

SID: What a wonderful testimony.

CARLIE: That was the easiest doorstep conversion ever.

SID: Now, what happens to your collection or new age and occultic books?

CARLIE: Right after I was born again, those books just disappeared from the bookshelf. No one touched them. No one threw them out, they were gone.

SID: Now, for the first time, when you recognize God was speaking to you, you were at a woman’s Bible study and you told me that you were suffering from epilepsy. How bad was it?

CARLIE: I had three or four seizures every day and it wasn’t safe. Sometimes my husband will come home from work and find me collapsed or he’d get a call from the hospital from intensive care. It nearly killed me several times.

SID: So for the first time you recognize God was speaking to you at this Bible study. And what did he say?

CARLIE: During that Bible study it was with a different kind of Bible study than my usual church. And my friend was leading the Bible study and she actually just left time in the Bible study for kind of a time of meditation where in a sense where we would just listen and hear God and I’d never really done that before. And in that time was the first time I really remember hearing God on the inside of me. He said to me, “In two weeks time, you can be healed from this if you choose to be.” And he set before me in my mind, I saw a vision of a light switch and he said, “I set before you life and death, choose life. When you’re ready, just flip the switch and turn the epilepsy off.”

I went home from there and I’m just like, “Lord, you know, I need to see, I need to understand what you’re saying in the word of God.” And for the next two weeks, the Lord showed me in the word of God how Jesus had a healing ministry and he went around healing all who were oppressed. I went back to that Bible study and in that Bible study my friend said, “I just feel like the Lord telling me I need to pray for you.” So she prays a quick prayer and I just know in my mind I turned that switch. I turned epilepsy off. I went from taking 13 different medications a day and having three or four seizures every day to never having another one of them and that was 15 years ago.

SID: Now, this woman is as bold as a lion with the word of God. She knows. Carlie was bold when she needed healing for herself, but I wonder how bold she was when her three-year-old daughter had days to live. Be right back.
