SID: Hello. Sid Roth here. Welcome to my world where it’s naturally supernatural. My guest has tapped into a frequency from Heaven that causes demons of depression, demons of fear, demons of worry, demons of anxiety to flee as in terror. Now my guest is John Waller. You’re probably familiar with John because he sang and wrote the lead song for the movie, “Fireproof.” But what you don’t know about John is when he was 12 years of age, he broke up with a girlfriend and it crushed him. And his mother and his grandmother suffered from horrific depression. I mean, your mom was in bed. You have memories of long periods of time she was so disabled by depression.

JOHN: Days at a time she’d be in bed. She was up and down, and that was the normal in our home.

SID: So he gets a little depressed. He breaks up with a girl and his mother ships him off to the doctor. In 30 minutes or less, the doctor gives him a lifetime diagnosis. He has to take medicines, four or five medicines. What was the diagnosis he gave you in 30 minutes or so?

JOHN: Bipolar disorder based on family history, based on just what I told him as to how I was feeling. Having experienced rejection for the first time from a girl obviously I was feeling a lot of natural things. But based on those feelings and family history he was quick to diagnose me.

SID: Okay. You have a desire to write songs, worship. You’re married, you’re 32 years of age and a deal, a record deal that was going to be, a man with a big cigar was going to make you a star, a movie star. What was his name, Colonel something or other. But it didn’t quite work out that way and you went into a tailspin. You had been on medicine for most of your life now for this condition that was diagnosed. It was actually a word curse is what occurred, because his mother said, when she saw him depressed, what were her exact words?

JOHN: She said, “He’s got it.” She said, my father heard her in the other room. She said, “He’s got it, I can just tell.”

SID: That curse, 20 years of medication. So he doesn’t get the deal. He goes into a tailspin and a couple sent by God comes into his house and prays for him. What happened?

JOHN: Well I had been prayed for before, but not like this. When this couple prayed over me, they anointed me, my head with oil. They said, “We want to pray for your deliverance.” And so I had never even really heard that term before. People had said they wanted to pray for my healing before. But this was a different kind of thing. It was deliverance. When they prayed for me I felt the power of the Holy Spirit come upon me and I felt heat in my body. And when they were done praying I knew something had happened. I knew something had broken. I didn’t even understand what had happened, but I knew something had changed.

SID: Twenty years of this addiction and something changed. But he continued with the medication. But five months later, funny thing, he ran out of medication and he just didn’t buy any. So what happened, John?

JOHN: Well we had moved to Colorado. You know, my band, after the record deal fell through the band broke up. I didn’t know where I was going to go with my life. But I got an opportunity to move to Colorado and we took it, and we moved to Colorado. That’s where I ran out of medication. And I didn’t tell my wife. I just stopped taking it. I weaned myself. And probably six months later I just all of a sudden realized, you know what, God really did set me free. I really am healed. I really am delivered. And I turned to my wife and I said, “Guess what, I’m delivered.” She was like, what do you mean? I was like, “I’m delivered from depression. I haven’t taken medication in six months.” And she was like, you know!

SID: I think that isn’t even an exaggeration of what his wife… but listen to this. He had five children. One year later, he had nine children. Do you know what that took? It took crazy faith. And John, I want you to go to the music set because I love this song, because there’s another word for crazy faith. It’s called normal, as defined by the Bible or there’s a Hebrew word I like to use, meshugganah faith. John Waller, “Crazy Faith.”

JOHN [music, singing]: Oh God, I hear you. You really want me to walk up to that mountain… This is crazy. But her face in that picture, I said that’s our daughter. But we can’t swim this ocean, but you’re telling us to move. This is crazy, yeah. Lord, this scares me, yeah. But it’s gonna take crazy faith. So what if it costs everything. I’m stepping out. I’m taking the leap of crazy faith. Crazy faith. Wherever you may lead I’ll go. Lead me Lord. I’ll follow you. It’s gonna take crazy faith. It’s gonna take crazy faith. So what if it costs everything. I’m stepping out. I’m taking a leap of crazy faith.
