SID: Welcome to my world, where it’s naturally supernatural. You know, these  organizations that take a child that is dying; terminal, no hope, and they say “What would you like to do? You certainly have one request.” And some say they want to go to Disney World… Well what happens when a young girl, her whole body is so riddled with cancer she’s got just weeks to live, and she has one request. She said, “I want to go to a place where I hear miracles happen.” Well, the organization was staggered; I mean they’d never had a request like that. She goes to this place where miracles take place, and she is no longer terminal from cancer. Cancer is no longer riddling her entire body. She goes on to live a great life. Well, what happened at this place where so many miracles are going on?

What happened to the man who is the lightning rod for these miracles to happen? I want you to take a look at this man, Steve Hill.

Growing up in northern Alabama, Steve Hill was bad news. Steve was ruthless, ok. When I say that, I mean ruthless. He was a guy that was just like she said. He had long hair, he was just oozing attitude. We were down and out drug addicts. We had tracks in our arms from shooting dope, we were selling our blood at blood banks, there were some crimes that involved guns. We were just not very good people. The thing is, if there were drugs involved and we wanted it, we’d find a way to get the money, and it didn’t matter at who’s expense it was.

Arrested numerous times, and facing a lifetime of drug addiction, burglary, and prison,

God led a man into Steve’s path. I get a phone call from his mother, and she says “Victor, you’ve got to get over here right away.” And I said, “What’s wrong?” She said “Steve’s having convulsions. You need to come right now.” His eyeballs… I mean I’ve never seen anything like it, but his eyeballs were just like jumping inside the sockets. He was in convulsions. He was scared. From the first time I’d met him, he was all attitude, but this time when I met him, he was absolutely scared to death. And as soon as we prayed, it was like [snap] it stopped, just like that. He looked up at me, he said “What happened? What happened?” And the words came out of my mouth, they weren’t even my own words, but the words came out of my mouth that said, “The kingdom of God has come upon you.”

At a court hearing in which the police expected Steve to be sent away for years, an astonishing thing happened. He was sentenced into the custody of a caring Christian man at a drug rehab center. That first day that Steve walked onto that property as a teenager in 1969, it was a divine appointment. I didn’t know what it was going to come to, and I never dreamed that I would see this man again in 1975 in the county jail behind bars, and then stand in a court room before a judge and say “God, what are You going to do? What are You going to do for this man?” I don’t know. I know that there’s something changed in his life. And I remember when the judge said “Steve, beyond my better judgment – and if you don’t complete this program you’re going to spend many years in the penitentiary – I’m going to probate you to this ministry outreach.”

Steve went from being a druggie in a rehab center to being a missionary in Argentina,

and an evangelist around the world. Ministering with his prayer partner and wife, Jerry,

and blessed with a loving family, Steve has focused on seeing the lost meet Jesus.

SID: This is Sid Roth here, and I have that man who was the lightening rod for the miracle I told you about, and many, many other miracles. But Steve, here you are a drug addict, out of control, I’ve never been a drug addict. It must be the worst thing in the world to be living that kind of life. And there’s a simple prayer, and you said, “What happened?” Take me to that moment. What happened?

STEVE: Sid, this is all about the supernatural. As I was watching that, tears welled up in my eyes, because I experienced an encounter with God. I’m not talking about religion, I’m talking about an encounter with God. And there’s people watching right now, that’s all you need. You need to have a connection with the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords; Messiah; Jesus. And so, I prayed. I hardly had any belief in God, ok. I’d been on drugs, and I was one of those, I’d wake up in the morning, go into convulsions, I’d wake up in the morning at 3 or 4 o’clock and go get a bottle of whiskey to calm my body down. And this went on for years. I was a mainliner, running up narcotics. A thief; I’d been arrested 13 times. I wanted out but didn’t know how. And there’s somebody watching right now, it’s not a drug addict, but you’re parents, and you’re watching your son and your daughter going down that same road. I just want to let you know that there’s hope. My mom prayed for me. When everyone else had given up, she got on her face and she prayed for me. When I called out on that day, when I called out to Jesus, all I said was “Jesus! Jesus! Jesus! Jesus!” And it was the heart of a drug addict going “Please, release me from this prison! If You’re out there; if You’re somewhere out there, Jesus, God, speak to me!” And the presence of God invaded that room, came into my body, and after three days of  violent convulsions, [snap] it was as if I’d never eaten an aspirin, I’d never done a drug, I’d never smoked pot, never done LSD, never done heroin – I was brand new. I got up from my bed, I went outside, and it was a beautiful October day in northern Alabama. The breeze was blowing, it was cool, the trees were swaying in the breeze…

SID: Listen! You think it’s too good to be true? You don’t even know what truth is! Then he gets hepatitis and he’s dying, and guess what? Miracle! We’ll be right back.
