Hello, Sid Roth here. Welcome to my world where it’s naturally supernatural. My guest got a phone call no parent wants. Her youngest daughter was brutally murdered. Then, believe it or not, then it really got difficult. God told her to embrace the murderer as her son. Next on It’s Supernatural.

Sid Roth has spent over 40 years researching the strange world of the supernatural. Join Sid for this edition of It’s Supernatural.

SID: My guest, Linda Markowitz, is Jewish, but she didn’t know that. Most of her life she was raised Catholic. She got married, had a couple of children, unfortunately got divorced, and she wants to make sure these children are raised right and the best school that she knew in this small community was a church school. So she put them in the church school. They’re having a concert and she’s a good mother and she’s helping to sell the tickets. And so she goes to the concert and she got a lot more than music. What happened?

LINDA: I certainly got much more than music. The church was hosting a conference with the Happy Goodman Family and they had this powerful concert and at the end of the concert, Vestal had an altar call. Now, I wasn’t saved and wasn’t interested in salvation at all, but as she just presented the offer, the invitation to come to the altar, for whatever reason, I just got out of my seat and walked down to that aisle and got in line at the front of the church. And at that altar, Sid, I met Jesus in the most remarkable way. I met him so face-to-face—

SID: What is the difference between what you’re describing? You knew about Jesus being raised Catholic. What is the difference?

LINDA: Relationship. Relationship. It was no longer just an ethereal thought, there was a presence of living reality in front of me, inviting me to do something much more than just read. And I was saved that night and filled with the Holy Ghost. I was baptized in the Holy Spirit and I prayed in tongues fluently that very moment and nobody ever told me to shut up. So I just assumed I could continue to do that. That was my only point of reference.

SID: Don’t you wish everyone that received the Holy Spirit in a supernatural prayer language was never told to stop? What did Paul say? “I pray without ceasing.” Only way you can pray without ceasing is to pray in tongues. Praying in tongues edifies, it builds up your spirit, man. And her spirit was growing and growing and growing. Her life was going good. She remarried. She was a Bible teacher. She has an amazing relationship with the Holy Spirit and she’s out of town on Mother’s Day, speaking, pay attention to that part, we’re going to come back to it, speaking on Mother’s Day—and you receive a phone call from your husband.

LINDA: I do. I live in the Orlando area and I was in Port St. Lucie visiting a church that was pastored by friends of mine and I was actually staying in their home. And I received a call and it was my husband. And he said to me, he said, “Linney”, he calls me Linney. He said, “Linney, what I have to tell you is the most difficult thing I’ll have to say.” And I thought maybe something happened to his mother because she had been ill and was actually staying with us, but that is not what came out of his mouth, Sid.

LINDA: What he said to me is, “Michelle”, who is my youngest daughter, “Michelle is dead. Ray shot her to death.” And Ray was her boyfriend. I’d only met him twice. And I was beyond shocked. The unbelief was unbelievable. Here I am a minister of the gospel of Christ. I had just ministered and now I hear this horrible, horrible report from my husband. It was not anything any parent would ever, ever want to hear.

SID: You must have almost gone into shock.

LINDA: I think I did for a few seconds, but it wasn’t very long though, Sid, because the Holy Spirit that I already had this wonderful relationship with, the Holy Spirit just began to just well up within me and just give me this assurance, “Okay. It’s okay. It’s okay. It’s okay.” Well, I didn’t see okay. There was no okay. There was no okay, but I could hear and sense and know this voice that I was so familiar with.
