Sid Roth on May 7th, 2020

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.

REBECCA: So everyone knew their name, right? But when I asked you what is your name, maybe some of you heard your name, your mom calling your name, right? Or you heard your name in your head. Like the conversation you have in your head, that voice, that’s probably your own, maybe, voice. Some people saw their name like a handwriting, saw their name or read their name like when you read it on the envelope of your mail. Some people didn’t hear or see anything you just, you knew this is who I am. Right? And some of you are confused because you’re thinking you had none of those, but you still knew your name, right? If you didn’t see a picture and you didn’t hear a sound, you probably just knew, you just had that inner knowing.

REBECCA: Well that was a natural exercise, that was not a supernatural exercise. But me triggering, asking you the question triggered a thought to come to your mind. Correct? And that’s how your mind works. So what’s going to happen? Now we’re going to pray and we’re going to ask the Lord. Everyone is going to hear from the Lord now and I want you to just ask the Lord whatever you’re comfortable with. Ask the Lord to give you a picture or ask the Lord to give you a sound such as a word or ask Lord to give you a feeling or an impression or just a knowing like some of you are like, “Yes, I just know.” Ask the Lord to give you one of those, whatever’s more comfortable for you about you for the next 24 hours. The scripture tells us that prophecy is for edification, exhortation, and comfort. Some good thought. His heart, as Jermaine said so well earlier, his heart towards us for the next 24 hours and we’re going to believe that God’s going to do it. So as believers, everyone will be equipped.

JERMAINE:  Yeah. So those of you that are watching at home, those of you that are in the studio audience, just go ahead and close your eyes right now and I’m just going to pray this prayer of impartation, of just a releasing of that prophetic spirit and that prophetic heart to you.

JERMAINE:  So Father, right now we just declare an opening of their spiritual senses right now, their ears to hear from you, their eyes in the spirit to begin to see you. So Lord, we just break off every hindrance right now and we just released the impartation of your prophetic spirit. So we just release that, you’re speaking, that you’re releasing right now, Lord, in Jesus name.

REBECCA: And so now just let a picture or a thought, a feeling, a word, a simple, subtle, still small voice that is positive, that is God’s heart toward you just for today, for the rest of today, for the next 24 hours. And by now something has hit our spirits. Just as quickly as you knew your name, that’s how quickly something has hit your spirit and so you can go ahead and open your eyes and you may have found that it was vague and you want to spend some time. Journal that, write it out, pray a little more into it, but I promise you that something came. Usually it’s just that first impression that comes, just grab it and let God unfold it. As long as it doesn’t go contrary to the Bible and as long as it fits with what the scripture says, edification, exhortation and comfort. Then let the word release and sort of marinate on that a little longer.

SID: Now, you usually teach long seminars on this, but how many people have you activated over the years approximately?

JERMAINE:  We’ve activated thousands and over thousands of people that we’ve done seminars and teaching with.SID: Okay. I heard a word and the word that I heard was whole. In Messiah, you are whole.

SID: Hello, Sid Roth here. Welcome to my world where it’s naturally supernatural. My guest, John Veal. At six [you] had an experience that no one should have. What happened to you?

JOHN: Well, at six years old, I lived with my mother and my aunt and my grandparents in a home in Chicago and they acquired a Ouija board. Now, Ouija board is something that people use to contact the dead, but it was marketed as a regular board game. So they bought it innocently and so one night they were playing. My mom and my aunt were playing the Ouija board and I never played it, but I was around it and I had watched them and all of a sudden they got something on the board.

JOHN: Now, some of the understanding about Ouija boards is that they believe the dearly departed comes through the board and the people put their hands on what’s called a planchette, the triangular object.

SID: So, this is almost like a séance?

JOHN: Yes, yes, yes. Very much.

SID: It’s the same thing?

JOHN: Yes, very much. And so they placed their hands on it and it moves the planchette around to different letters and symbols that was on the board.

SID: And spells things out.

JOHN: Spells things out, yes. And so they are doing this on this particular night and they got something on the board and it was particularly drawn to my mother. And it said it hated my mother, spelled out that it hated my mother. And then my mother asked it a question, she said, “when will I die?” And it spelled out in the next 10 years. And so that frightened her to no end.

SID: I would imagine so.

JOHN: Yes. And so they kind of continue. My aunt went on and she played with the board and she got something on there and then they went on to doing something else and saying all this foul language and all kinds of stuff. It was really, really bad.

SID: And so you kind of grew up with this sort of thing happening. But tell me about the time you just went into your bathroom and what did you see?

JOHN: Yeah, I was on the back porch at the same house and just have to use the washroom. So, I went to the washroom and as a little guy, I had to reach up to turn the light on. I saw a figure that was darker than how dark it was in the bathroom, and I thought it was my Aunt Helen. And so I reached down to try to touch it. And so it seemed like the figure turned away from me and just disappeared. Now what was so amazing is that I wasn’t fearful at first, I was just in awe because I couldn’t believe what I was seeing. And then fear hit me when it disappeared. And I ran out and I told my aunt what I’d seen. She said, “I’ve seen it too.” Very, very calmly. So, it was commonplace within the house.

SID: By the way, did your mother live in real fear for the next 10 years?

JOHN: Yes, she did. She did. This worried her. This upset her as she was 26 at the time. So as she approached her 36th birthday, which was 10 years later, she started talking about the brevity of life. How short life is, telling me to take care of my little brother. So I started to pray with all my might. I said, “Lord, please don’t let my mother die. Don’t let her pass.” And thankfully she did not die. She lived another 27 years.

And there’s movies about ghosts. Are there such things as ghosts?

JOHN: No. No. Hebrews 9 and 27 says, “it’s appointed unto man once to die. But after this, the judgment”. So there is no staying on earth. There’s no purgatory where you’re on the earth and just walking around aimlessly. You either go into heaven or hell. And so ghosts are demons. They’re demons. So if someone sees their grandmother and they appear, that’s not your grandmother, that’s a demon.

SID: You spent long times with God pursuing him.

DONNA: Oh, I did. Every day I did.

SID: You finally found your friend, but you—

DONNA: I wanted more. I wanted that same encounter like I had when I was seven. And so I did… And I think God was using that to train me and to teach me. And I also felt that the more we hunger for him, the deeper the hunger is, the more he has to give us to fill that hunger. He satisfies the hungry. So if we’re only a little bit hungry, he only has to pour a little bit in to satisfy the hunger. But if we have an enormous hunger for him, he’s going to pour an enormous amount of his spirit and to satisfy the hunger.

SID: And as she was doing this, the presence of God started getting tangibly stronger and stronger and stronger.

DONNA: Yes. And eventually I began to recognize that I was always hearing from him, but I just didn’t recognize it was his voice. I expected to hear his voice outside me. So I got to learn that when… There’s a scripture that when Jesus was… After he had arose from the dead, he was walking down the road on the road to Emmaus and the disciples were walking with him, and they invited him to come for dinner. And he walked. During the breaking of the bread, they recognized him. And after Jesus disappeared, they said, “Weren’t our hearts burning within us when he was talking to us on the road?” And I knew the Holy Spirit was giving me a key, “This is how you’re going to recognize my voice. Your heart will burn within you. You will feel my love.”

DONNA: So I began to see that whenever I was reading scripture, the sentences that would just jump out and touched my heart was Jesus talking directly to me through the word. If I was at a church service, the pastor, the words he said that touched my heart like that was Jesus talking to me. So I began to satisfy that hunger. I wanted that personal word from God every day. I would not leave my prayer time alone with him until I heard him speak to me personally, every day. If it was two or three hours, I would stay there until I heard him tell talk to me.

SID: But as she was seeking God deeper and deeper, she started having this vistation to hell and to heaven. There was one place in hell you talk about that kind of really explains hell. It’s called the Chamber of Despair. Describe that to me.

DONNA: This was a place that people who are tormented by demons in their minds are sent to. These demons already were tormenting these people on the earth, causing them, even some people, to commit suicide, and rather than turn to Jesus for help, they didn’t. They denied Jesus, got mad at Jesus, and the enemy was able to bring them there. These people were tortured daily. While I was going to get to this place, walking down this tunnel, this avenue with Jesus, I could hear this loud clanging noise and what it sounded like, it sounded like somebody with a sledge hammer banging on chains. Bang, bang, bang, like that all the time, constantly. And so I was wondering, “What is this noise?”

DONNA: So finally we get to this chamber and I see this big clock hanging over the top of the chamber. And this clock represented to the people that they were going to be there forever. And the demons would chant to the clock. Every time the clock would chime, they would chant, “Forever, forever. You will be here. Forever you will be unloved. Unloved, unloved, forever unloved. Never, never, will you ever feel loved. Never, never will you leave here.” Things like that over and over and constantly. When one demon got tired of saying it, another one would pick up the chant. Continually these people were tortured like that.
