Sid: My guest is Bill Morford I’m speaking to him at his home Lexington, South Carolina. Several years ago I got ahold of his Bible translation it is called “The Power New Testament” subtitled “Revealing Jewish Roots.” When I saw that he had an explanation for such things as the Jewish roots, the Jewish idioms, the Jewish customs, even the tenses of the language that I had never seen in any other Bible before. It is like when the New Testament was written it was written in a Jewish land for Jewish people, and there was no need for explanation of these idioms; no need for explanation of these customs because all of the Jewish people that heard these letters that were read to them from congregation to congregation they understood it. Today a lot of the culture of Christianity has distorted the original meaning of the words in the New Testament. So Bill I am so grateful to the Lord that you invested your life in this “Power New Testament.” Out of curiosity what do you mean by the “Power New Testament?”
Bill: When I was translating Greek, when I was studying Greek, I saw that in the New Testament that the Greek had a lot of power. It was actually a good language for the Jewish authors to use, not as good as Hebrew but it could be just as powerful as Hebrew. But the power was not translated by the scholars that do our ordinary translation. I had no idea that I would eventually publish, but it just irritated me whenever I ministered. I would use the power and bring out the power that the authors had put into the New Testament. So when the Lord told me to get serious with it, and I knew I was going to publish I just translated literally what the authors had written. They often said things like “You must do this immediately,” or “You must continually do this.” Jesus gave stern rebukes at times. It’s just awesome the power that’s in there that’s just missed.
Sid: There are so many things we want to discuss that each one of these things… This is the amazing thing to me Bill, each one of the points that we’ll be discussing this week is enough to change someone’s destiny. For instance, one of my favorite words that you translate, and the way you translate it is the Greek word for “sickness.” Why did you translate that “evil” and perhaps you can give me a scripture where it is used?
Bill: Here’s an example of it in Matthew 4:24, “And His reputation spread through all Syria, and they brought to Him all those having various evils and various diseases, and being tormented and possessed by demons, and being moonstruck, and paralytics, and He healed them.” The word there translated “evils” is translated “sickness” in most translations.
Sid: Okay this is a good point to find out the revelation that God gave you personally about healings some 25 or more years ago. Tell me about that.
Bill: Well it was interesting He forced it on me, of course I believed in it, but it was night at 3:00 in the morning. One of my sons and I were driving back from New England to South Carolina at 3:00 in the morning on a Pennsylvania interstate that was really torn up, and it was shaking the car. The right lane was blocked off for resurfacing, my son was asleep in the backseat. A semi came up right on my back bumper with those big headlights shining and I had a pounding headache that wouldn’t quit. Nowhere to go couldn’t even slow down, so I cried out to Jesus and the headache vanished on the spot. Within a minute it came back and I just said “Oh no, oh no Jesus come back” and the headache left, and I haven’t had a headache since.
Sid: What about other sickness with you?
Bill: None, I haven’t had a sore throat, upset stomach…
Sid: Bill how old are you?
Bill: I’m 75.
Sid: And you’re telling me that you have not had to battle even diseases, and headaches, and stomachaches for how many years?
Bill: Well more than 25 even for headaches. My last prescription was given in 1956.
Sid: Hmm. So you must have some great insight into healing, but to me once you realize that sickness and disease is evil, and evil doesn’t come from God, I imagine that alone helps you resist.
Bill: It sure does.
Sid: Is there any other insight that comes to mind about healing that has helped you remain in divine health?
Bill: No I’m just determined that he’s not gonna do it. If I get sniffles or something before I went to bed I rebuke it. Haven’t had any discomfort and no problem at night with a stuffy nose in the winter, or whatever.
Sid: Now I love your translation. I’m looking here at Matthew 5:1 many call it the Beatitudes, and you say “Blessed.” Your footnote here says “The Greek word translated “blessed” throughout the Beatitudes is “makarios,” and it means ‘Blessed and happy, or the repentant.’” Where did you get the word repentant?
Bill: That’s a Hebrew idiom that’s in there. That’s the poor in spirit.
Sid: I’ve heard so many people try to explain what that means, but it’s impossible to explain what that means if you don’t know the Hebrew idiom.
Bill: That’s right. I don’t know of any translation that translates the Hebrew idioms in there.
Sid: Okay, we were talking earlier about the title of your New Testament called “The Power New Testament.” Give me an example of that.
Bill: Okay, Mark 11:23 is one of my favorites.
Sid: That’s one of my favorites too. I’m so glad you’re gonna read that. Here by the way I’ve got a copy, and those that are listening will have one very soon, but until you do I’m gonna turn to follow you that because I mean I have preached from your translation of this. Would you read that for our audience?
Bill: I surely will. “Truly I say to you that whoever would say to this mountain. ‘You must immediately be removed and you must immediately be cast into the sea,’ and would not doubt in his heart but would believe that what he is say is happening, it will be to him. Because of this I say to you, you must continually pray for everything, then for whatever you are asking, believe that you have taken it, and it will be there for you.”
Sid: You know the word that really gets me is when you say “believe that you have taken it.” I have actually preached in healing meetings I want you to reach into that invisible world for your healing, for whatever you need and just take it, grab it. I mean is that the way the Greek expresses it?
Bill: It is. It’s take and our polite translators say “receive” instead of “take.” See Jesus said, He didn’t say “Receive the Holy Spirit,” He said “Take the Holy Spirit.” We’re are supposed to be eager for all of the things of God, and just reach out and take it.
Sid: Let me tell you, I mean there’s just so much were gonnahave to talk about this week. I’ll tell you another favorite in your translation of mine that has opened… Every one of these nuggets Mishpochah open up a whole new realm of understanding from the idioms to the power behind these words, to the tenses, to the Hebrew roots, but in Matthew 18:18 let me read Bill’s translation “Truly I say to you: whatever you would bind upon” then in the footnote you explain “To bind is a Hebrew idiom meaning to forbid. Binding and losing refer specifically to the dietary, Sabbath, and other regulations, including civil law, as well as to spiritual things.” So “Truly I say to you: whatever you forbid upon the Earth will already have been forbidden in heaven with ongoing effect.” In other words, when the Lord prayed “Thy kingdom come thy will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven” it’s already been done in Heaven, that’s what this translation is telling me Bill.
SID: Hello. Welcome to my world where it’s naturally supernatural. Last week we found out about these amazing prophecies buried in the Vatican, 900 years ago, what would happen to each pope all the way up to the last pope. On this show we’re going to continue and we’re going to talk about the Vatican’s secret plans for welcoming an alien god with a small “g” under the last pope. Last week talked about St. Malachy. And Cris, I have to ask you, does the pope know about these prophecies? Do the cardinals know about the prophecies and what do they think of them?
CRIS: Well Sid, there’s actually a lot of evidence that they do take it seriously. In fact, Pope Pius XII, who was the pope during the World War II, he actually produced a documentary film about himself, and the title of the film is the Malachy motto for his papacy, “Angelic Shepherd.” He actually entitled the film after the Malachy Prophecy’s prediction for him. So he not only endorsed it, he claimed it.
SID: Okay. Tom, as just a short review, what, based on the prophecies out of the Vatican that were hidden for all these generations, are they anticipating with the final pope?
TOM: Well the idea among both Catholics and Protestant scholars is that he will be the final pope. He is the one who is going to be residing over the Vatican as it enters into the great tribulation period, and there’s also the belief among even some of the Catholic mystics that he might be a false pope, an anti-pope, somebody who gives rise to the Antichrist.
SID: Let me tell you something, Judaism, Christianity and other religions have focused on the year 2012. You know, you remember, the Mayan prediction, the end of the world in 2012. So everyone has discounted all of that. But that’s not exactly what the prediction said. What did it say?
TOM: In the conferences where I spoke last year, I kept telling people, don’t say it’s the end of the world. That’s not what the Maya said, that’s not what the Aztec, that’s not what the Cherokee Indians said, all of whose calendar rolled over at the end of 2012. What was it that they were saying? They were saying 2012 was the end of an era and 2013 marks a new dispensation. Now the Maya said some things that were very interesting. They said it would be marked by the emergence of two great male figures that would emerge upon the earth. That doesn’t sound very much like they’re talking the false prophet and the Antichrist. They talked about their god, Bolon Yakte-K’uh, the spirit of it coming up from out of the underworld. Now what does this god do? He guards the bones and the seed of the giants that are in the underworld, and that that spirit would begin to rise in the year 2013, giving birth even to a new form of humanity.
SID: You’re talking about what I’ve read about and pondered about so many times in the Bible. Maybe you’ve read about this where the Nephilim, where the sons of god cohabitated with the daughters of humans and produced great giants. That’s what it sounds like to me.
TOM: That’s exactly what I’m talking about. And furthermore, turn of the century preachers, including Jonathan Edwards, marked the year 2012 to 2016 as the date when the false prophet and the Antichrist would appear. Dozens of Protestant reformers marked these years hundreds of years ago. Not only that, and you appreciate this with your Jewish ministries, the Zohar, one of the most important books of Jewish Kabbalah ever written.
SID: It is accepted in traditional Judaism as coming from God. It’s not all from God, I can tell you, as a fact. But it’s an interesting situation that it talks about.
TOM: In a section of the Zohar called “Signs Heralding the Mashiach”, the coming of the Messiah, they marked the year 5773, which in the Jewish calendar began in September 2012, and comes through into this year, 2013, and said that was the time, in fact, much of the prophecies are almost identical to the prophecy of the pope’s. It is a time that will lead to the destruction of Rome, and more importantly, they said at time Messiah will begin making himself known to the nations of the world. This 700 years ago prophesied that between 2012 to 2013, the emergence of the Messiah would appear on Earth, almost an identical parallel to cultures around world, that for thousands of years saw these dates specifically as the time when the End Times would begin.
SID: Speaking of End Times, many of you are familiar with the apparitions of Mary in Fatima, and people going there and being healed. But it’s not exactly the way we’ve been told, is it Cris?
CRIS: No it’s not. What would happen if there was a massive UFO sighting? Well what happened in Fatima, Portugal in 1917 was really just that, in my opinion. Now up to 70,000 people gathered in a field supposedly to see an apparition of the Virgin Mary. But if you go and read the descriptions of what people call “the miracle of the sun”, they actually describe seeing a gray silvery disk rotating around the sky and kind of putting a cascade of colors, like a rainbow of colors. So really in 1917, no one had the vocabulary of words like “flying saucer”. That’s exactly what it sounds like they’re describing to me.
SID: I’ve always thought Mary just appeared in the sky.
CRIS: It really wasn’t Mary at all. They’re talking about a sphere or a silver disk.
SID: And that same flying saucer, let’s call it for what it is, demonic, according to my notes here, in 1950, Pope Pius XII saw the same thing. Explain that.
CRIS: Well what’s interesting about the Marian dogma and all these things that we don’t see in the Bible, the theology has sort of escalated over time. Now in 1950, Pope Pius saw a sphere over the Vatican gardens, the same sort of thing that you hear about at Fatima. Now this sighting of this opaque sphere, flying saucer, UFO, inspired him to define a new doctrine that all Catholics have to believe, and that is that Mary ascended into Heaven, just like Jesus does in Acts, Chapter 1.
SID: Wait until you find their research of what the Vatican is ready to announce in reference to End Time Bible prophecy and in reference to aliens coming to Planet Earth. We’ll be right back.
SID: My guest Rich Vera went to Heaven and had so much revelation downloaded to the Word of God. One of my favorite passages of all the Bible is the prophet Isaiah, the 53rd Chapter. Why? Because it is a perfect description of the Messiah, Jesus. And it was written eight to 900 years before Jesus came to Earth. What did Isaiah teach you about that, Isaiah 53?
RICH: You see, I was able to see in a vision. You know, when Isaiah talked to me it was the voice of the Lord talking, but it was him talking. And that’s when I realized that when we read the Word of God it’s not just somebody’s opinion. It is literally the Lord talking through the prophets. And when I saw Isaiah 53, I saw the cross, and I saw Jesus’ crucifixion. And the power of that event that Jesus did not die just to forgive our sins, even though that’s a main thing. But there’s wholeness. There’s the healing of the spirit of the soul and the body that happened on that cross, that happened to shed the blood of Jesus. You know, many times we have forgotten about the cross and we have forgotten about the blood. But really, it was on the cross, in the Old Testament when they looked at the serpents on the pole. You know, Moses said, “Whosoever looks shall live.” Well there was a shadow of the crucifixion, and in the cross our sins were there, our sicknesses. So when he spoke this to me his voice came out with such a power. And I realized, we emphasize on the cure of the body. Most people that talk about healing talk about cures. But in reality when you get the spirit inside of a person well and whole, then the healing of the body will following automatically.
SID: And that’s the missing link. That’s why a lot of people even, they get healed and then it seems like the symptoms come back so easily. It’s because those same wounds are still there.
RICH: Exactly. There are some [unintelligible] that have not dealt with [unintelligible] that we spoke about inequity. You know, there are so many things that we don’t allow, and then we want things from God. And then when they don’t work the enemy comes to deceive us. Well maybe God don’t want to heal, it’s not your time or so many things. But I found that in the presence of the Glory of God there’s wholeness. You see, Heaven was all about the Glory. Heaven, there is not an ounce of anointing in Heaven. There is no anointing in Heaven. The anointing is for the Earth. But Heaven is all about the Glory because Heaven is all about God. In Heaven, no one is insignificant. Isaiah, all these people that I saw and I was able to converse, they had one message to me. I asked them a thousand questions and their message was the Glory, and the Glory is God. So Heaven is full of His glory. God fills Heaven. Worship is directed. Everything is directed towards a person of God. I was able to see up on a hill the palace of God, and I said a palace because it looked to me like a palace covered by a shot, by a cloud. But it was a dark cloud like a cloud that’s about to pour rain. And that dark cloud, it covered half of the palace. And the palace was up on the mountain. I was trying to run up to catch it, because my mind is still at work. So I’m thinking, I’m going to go up there real quick and just touch it a little bit. And the more I ran up, the higher it went. I understood when it says, “I saw the Lord and He was high and lifted up.” So not only He is high, but He’s in a continuous state of going higher. And the worship of the people is what exalts, the word “exalt” is to bring high. So God is on continuous exultation. And the way we connect with God, really I learned, is to worship, is to finding that connection. And then I saw suddenly that a door opened up and this river came down from the palace. When this river came down it looked like if it was as thick as liquid chocolate. But it was the water that came out, it was gold, it was like gold liquid. And the water would curl and would come down. It looks almost like a cartoon. And suddenly I hear a voice as the water is coming down, that that was the river of life, and anything that it touches it turns it back into life. And I could see the grass and some of the flowers that it would go right through, and it would come alive. They were alive.
SID: So that river is available today. And I’m going to ask you to pray, especially people that have these inequities, these wounds in their souls that are preventing them from activating the promises of God. I believe if you pray for them right now there is going to be a supernatural river of life.
RICH: I believe that. You know, most of us we deal with transgressions. You know, transgressions is the act of what we do wrong. You know, but there’s a thing in the Bible that’s called inequity, which is that inner cause that makes you do the other sins. Most of us, we’re clean. We say we don’t do smoke, we don’t drink, we don’t do this. But yet if we don’t deal with what’s in our heart, the wickedness of our heart, the things that was inherited, then eventually that scene will come back again causing you to fall. And that’s why so many good people, maybe you’re watching us and you are a good believer, and you don’t know why you fell into a sin, into a thing, it is because you never dealt with the issue of the heart. And I pray right now in the name of Jesus there are many ministers, people called to minister right now and you fell away, and you felt God is done with me. But no, the Lord wants to restore your life. He did it for me, and it was His presence, it was His voice, His word that completely delivered me. And I know God wants to restore you. And I pray in the name of the Lord Jesus that this will be the day and the hour where the Lord restores your life, heals you, remove every generation or curse out of your life and brings the presence of the Holy Spirit into every compartment of your heart and of your soul, and heals you in the name of Jesus.
SID: You know, I feel, as you’re talking right now I am hearing words of knowledge. I am hearing that people with arthritis in their fingers, if you will move your fingers the arthritis is gone. And others, right there, I’m speaking to you. If you have a pain in your neck or your back, if you’ll just stand up, stretch, touch the ceiling, you know what I’m saying, move your head, you’ll see that that pain is totally gone, is very strong, and fingers. Is God showing you anything?
RICH: Yeah. You know, definitely arthritis. There is somebody with a back problem and you had an accident, and you have been in extreme pain for many years because of your back. Some of your discs were damaged. The Lord is healing you right now. There’s a great healing in your body. There’s also somebody else with a blockage on your ear, on your hearing right now that the Lord is delivering you from that stuff. There is people with depression, heavy depression, and the Lord is lifting that veil of depression out of your life and you’re being free right now by the power of the Holy Spirit.
SID: And I can say this to you right now. This show was designed for you. Remember when I said, come home? That was for you. God is not angry with you. He sent his son to die for you. And I tell you, you would not be watching this show if there wasn’t time to come home. Turn from your sin, turn to God, believe Jesus died and is your Lord and lives inside of you, and rose from the dead.
Sid: I have a good friend on the telephone. I can’t say I know him that well, but I can consider him a good friend, primarily because I was a friend of his grandfather’s and I see a lot of similarity. My guest is Dr. Peter Wyns, his grandfather is Dr. Derek Prince whose been promoted to heaven. When I got ahold of his latest book it’s called… It’s quite a title Peter…
Peter: Yes it is.
Sid: “Fighting Death and Other Desperate Battles.” In your own words why did you write this book?
Peter: Well I came in contact with a couple, Ronnie & Clarice Holden who by all natural means should have died, but they learned to pray and they fought a spiritual battle and they lived, and he lived. I believe that there are so many people across the country who are fighting spiritual battles and some of them as though they are losing those battles, and they need to know how to fight, they need to know how to pray and put their faith in God.
Sid: Not only losing, but giving up because they’re not seeing victory around them. It is a spiritual fight it’s not dealing with flesh and blood.
Peter: Yeah that’s right. In fact the Bible says “That death is our last enemy.” You have to fight enemies, but were not always trained to fight. People don’t like conflict, they don’t live for conflict. Humanity wasn’t brought into a life of conflict, we love peace. So when conflict comes before us, often we don’t know how to fight, we don’t know how to standup, but we need to learn when we’re faced with trauma and difficulty. That’s what spiritual warfare is all about, and that’s what the book is all about.
Sid: Now this story is basically about a man that stood no chance of survival. In fact, didn’t the doctor tell his wife he only had hours or days to live?
Peter: Yes actually many times. They had 14 different doctors working on him. At one point they gave him 3 hours to live.
Sid: Just for those that haven’t read the book…
Sid: Tell me just briefly his story, what happened to him.
Peter: He was riding home late at night in his truck from his business; he owns a restaurant just north of Myrtle Beach. A drunk driver going about 80 MPH t-boned him, and he went flying through the passengers window and rolled on the ground. The truck came rolling behind him and took out a fire hydrant, and he was a real mess. His back was broken in 2 places, his pelvis is broken, his leg was shattered, and all his insides were bruised and tore up; his kidneys, and his intestines, and his liver and such. They got him to the hospital, and then a short time after he became very septic. He had peritonitis, and they had to rush him to an operation. He went into a coma, and they opened him up and they couldn’t close him for 12 days because he was so swollen, and he was such a mess. The doctor’s just said “He cannot live, he cannot live.” That’s where Clarice, his wife, stepped forward and said “Doctor I need you to come into agreement with me for the life of my husband.” For a long time the doctor said “I can’t he’s just not going to live mam I’m very sorry,” but she insisted. Finally the doctor he said “Alright we’ll agree with you as much as we can.” They prayed and they prayed, and they won the battle. He’s alive today, 6 years later and doing fabulous.
Sid: If his wife had not understood, what actually I consider your book a manual for desperate situations. If his wife did not do what she did I happen to believe he would be in heaven right now.
Peter: Yeah there’s no doubt about it in my mind. It was just the wife it was also the whole church. You know she stay in the hospital for 52 days; slept on the couch in the waiting room, and every day, all day long and all night, the church had somebody with her, and they prayed. They just stayed, they stayed in faith and they listened to the Holy Spirit and they prayed, and they gave thanks to the Lord, and they did what the Lord told them to do through this whole thing. They saw miracle, after miracle, after miracle.
Sid: Just as a matter of review, I personally considered your grandfather one of the best Bible teachers of anyone I’ve known or studied. What was his spin on healing, what did he believe?
Peter: Grandpa Derek believed that if we met God’s conditions we would get God’s blessings. The more we lined up with God the more we would get of His blessings. Because we don’t get of his blessings it means that in some way we’re missing out on what the Lord has for us. So he believed with all of his heart in absolute healing in every situation if we could find the heart of God and press through in agreement with Him.
Sid: You know I listened to a cassette this past weekend of a friend of mine who’s battling cancer. He’s a tremendous Bible teacher his name is Jack Frost. He said “This last year has been the best of times, and the worst of times.” The worst of times because of the pain, etcetera, but the best of times because finally he’s learned what the book of Hebrews talks about the Shabbat, the Sabbath rest, he’s learned what it is to rest in God.
Sid: It was so wonderful, but your book has… I have to call it a manual for those are close to giving up, or have hopeless situations in any arena.
Sid: Now you talk about a word we hear a lot, but I don’t think we really understand. It’s called prayers of supplication. What does that mean?
Peter: Supplication is one of the 7 types of prayer that I’ve discovered in the scriptures. In supplication itself it means a desperate cry to God for help for a miracle in a time of great trauma and crisis. It means a bowing of the heart; a taking ahold of God; it means to wrestle with Him like Jacob wrestled with the angel and he won the battle and was blessed because of it.
Sid: Now speaking of desperate prayer you’ve prayed for a lot of people that have been sick that God has healed. Tell me about someone dead that you prayed for.
Peter: Yes it was just a couple of years ago we were in a ministry time in Shallotte, NC. The meeting was going on quite late because we had hundreds, and hundreds of people that we were praying for. I was kneeling down on the ground beside somebody who was, you know receiving some ministry. This man came up behind me, he’s a good friend now, his name is Marvin Rollins. He came up behind me and he said “Peter I’m not feeling well.” I turned around and saw him and his whole body was covered in perspiration. The church was air conditioned, it was cool in there, but he had perspiration on his neck, on the back of his hands. He was having a heart attack I had seen this before. We actually had a nurse there, a heart ward nurse there who verified all of these things later. I immediately stood up and had him sit down on the side of the platform and I got a cloth and started wiping his brow, and at the same time I was just rebuking the demon spirits that I could see were attacking him and wanting to take his life. While I had one hand behind him because he was swooning, and you could see he was losing the battle and he died. His pulse stopped, the nurse was there she took his vital signs. I just rebuked the spirit of death and I said “You spirit of death I rebuke you in the name of Jesus. I command life to come into you,” and he just took a gasp like (sound of quick inhaling) like that. Immediately his eyes had life in them, and his heart started again, and he started to breathe again. Within a minute he just sat up and he just got better and better. He stayed for the next 2 days; he never went to intensive care at the hospital. When the conference was over I talked with, I said “Marvin when you get home would you go see a doctor and let us know what has happened.” He did, and 2 weeks later we got the report, and he said “My doctor said it’s amazing the condition of my heart has changed, my physical heart.” He said “I no longer have any high blood pressure, I don’t have any cholesterol problems,” and he said on top of all that “My back that was severely full of pain and had a lot of problems with it” he said it’s totally been healed as well. It was amazing. I’ve seen him several times since then over the last couple of years, and he’s just rejoicing in the Lord.
Sid: Peter what is the biggest lesson, and there’s so many lessons we can learn as you wrote about the great miracle of Ron Holden. What is the biggest lesson you’ve learned from that?
Peter: Well there’s a story Jesus tells concerning prayer. He said “There was a widow lady who felt like she was unjustly treated. She went to the judge and the judge didn’t pay any attention, but she kept nagging and nagging and pressing in and asking. Finally the judge, who was not a great judge, but he said because the woman was nagging him he finally acquiesced and said ‘Okay I am going to help you.’ He brought justice to her situation.” Jesus told this strange story and then He said “I want you to pray like that. I want you to continue to come knocking on the door like this woman did to a God who is just.” I think what happens is that when we push into God, we do it with faith in our hearts and with thanksgiving in our hearts, then even though we might not begin having the keys to unlock the doors that need to unlock. I think God will many times give us those keys as we walk with Him, and amazing things can happen.
Sid: Briefly, because it’s a new book, tell me one person and the affect it had on them when they read your book “Fighting Death and Other Desperate Battles.”
Peter: Yeah, many people have been blessed, but one in particular is a story of a man up in the Pittsburgh area whose life was hanging in the valence and somebody in his family, or one of his friends got ahold of this book and read it. Because of that they decided to go into 5th gear in their prayer, they decided to fight for his life in a whole new way. They gained faith, and they prayed, and prayed. Within a week his whole situation turned around and he was brought back from the brink of death.
SID: Can you imagine a woman speaking in a mosque about Jesus, Muslims present and miracles take place? How did you do that, Marilyn?
MARILYN: It’s the favor of God, really, Psalms 5:12, because I wanted to have a healing meeting in a mosque and break this barrier. Because once you break it, a lot of other people, it has a domino effect. So I met an imam in Detroit, asked him about doing this. He said, “No, we would never do that.” But then, you don’t give up until you win. The game is not over until you win.
SID: You talk about, “I can”. What do you mean by that?
MARILYN: I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. You don’t say, I can’t, because everybody said you can’t. It’s never been done, it’s not gonna happen with you. But it happened, because when I was getting ready to leave, and I wasn’t discouraged, he said to me, the next time you’re in Detroit, why don’t you come to my house for dinner. Six months later I’m in Detroit. He said, “Now what is it you want to do?” I said, “I want to have a healing meeting in a mosque, and I want to pray for the sick and believe for the miraculous.” He said, “We can do that.”
SID: I want you to say, “I can do all things in Messiah Jesus.” Do you hear that, devil? You’re not saying it for anyone else’s benefit but the devil, and we’re to release the angels to even have a healing meeting and presentation of Jesus in a mosque. What happened?
MARILYN: Well I spoke, first time in history, and we had an agreement. I could teach the Bible. I taught one miracle of Jesus and then prayed for the sick.
SID: Was anyone healed?
MARILYN: Oh yes. We had people healed of back problems. The boy who opened the meeting who read from the Koran, couldn’t see, they had no distance sight, and God healed him. A lot of people were healed, though it wasn’t a big crowd. But afterwards, they always have refreshments, and they had like 11 imams and maybe a hundred people. And so I just decided to go from table to table, and they would say, would you pray for my family, would you pray for my back, would you pray, whatever, and pray for the sick. And then the imam invited me back. I prayed for him and his wife. They couldn’t have babies. And now they have two.
SID: That’s normal. I wish the whole world was normal like you, Marilyn. Now Marilyn, one thing I noticed is many people like you that operate in the miraculous, when you get sick, what happens? Like the time you discovered a lump in your breast, not someone else’s.
MARILYN: Right. And that was many years ago. But I took that scripture, because you take the promise to the problem. You don’t take the problem to God. Take the promise that goes with the problem because the promise doesn’t return void. So it says, “The Word will be health to your flesh.” And health in some places it says “medicine”. So I thought, you know, you usually take medicine three times a day, but I got to get rid of this thing fast, because it was growing fast. So I stayed up for 24 hours and sent the Word into that lump. I said, this word, I read it out loud, “This Word is health to my flesh.”
SID: Over the 24 hours, how often did you say that?
MARILYN: Okay, every hour. I did it for 24 times and it was gone. It was gone.
SID: I love it. I love being normal.
MARILYN: I do, too.
SID: Okay, Marilyn, I got a little confession to make. I find it difficult to memorize, and I think there’s a few people watching that find it difficult to memorize. Tell us some tips on memory, and also, you told me something about what happens the last thing you look upon or speak about before you go to bed. Start with that.
MARILYN: Alright. Proverbs 6:22 says, “When you sleep the Word will keep you, when you wake up the Word will talk to you, and when you walk the Word will guide you.” So three times a day I take a verse, you may want to take just one week, and I say that verse first thing in the morning, because it’s not just you reading the Bible. The Bible starts reading you. And I speak that verse 10 times out loud. Now don’t ask me why it’s 10. I just know this works for me. Then at lunch time I speak that promise again, because the Word guides me in my day. But before I go to sleep I speak it because, this is what I read, that whatever you see last goes through your mind seven times through the night. So the Word is working in me while I’m sleeping.
SID: So what is the last thing that you see before you go to bed? I think you got the message. What if we put on our Twitter account and Facebook account one scripture every week, and all of us do it together. I think that would be just a phenomenal mentoring for us.
MARILYN: Oh yes. I would suggest John 8:12. It says, “Jesus said, ‘I am the light of the world. He that follows me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.’” So speak that when you get up in the morning. You’re not going to have a dark day. Why? Because you’re following Jesus, and he’s the light for this life, as well as eternal life.
SID: I want you to pray for supernatural favor for our viewers right now.
MARILYN: Oh I love this. I love to do this. Every one of you are to have supernatural favor. Don’t look at anything about yourself. Look at who he is, and you are in him. Father, I pray for everyone watching this program that Psalms 5:12 says, “You surround the righteous with favor like a shield.” And we are the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus. It’s his righteousness and we are surrounded with favor. Every place we go people love us. Every place we go we love them. We walk down an aisle in a store and we smile, Jesus, and people smile back at us because they know there is a favor around us in Jesus’ name. Amen.
SID: There’s not just a favor around us. The presence of God is around us.
SID: And I tell you, if God is for you, who can be against you. I tell you, worry for nothing. I tell you that you have a peace that is beyond comprehension. I tell you, you can do exceedingly abundantly beyond anything, anything you’ve ever asked or thought, according to the power that dwells within you. I tell you all things are possible to those who believe. I tell you God loves you and has a destiny and a plan for your life, and Jesus is the only way to know God, only way.
