Sid Roth - Witches Who Come Against Him Are Struck Dead
When a witch doctor came against my guest, the witch was struck dead. Next on this edition of It's Supernatural!
Sid Roth: Hello. Sid Roth your investigative reporter. There is going to be a power encounter between you and the invisible realm sometime during this telecast. This will be interactive. You will literally feel the presence of the Creator of the universe come right through your television set. My guest is from Uganda. His name is Robert Kayanja. Now Robert, when was the first time you can remember seeing a miracle based on you praying?
Robert Kayanja: The first time I saw the power of God coming was through the situation we had of Idi Amin. Idi Amin was a tyrant who killed over a million people, over a thousand ministers of the Gospel, and several other people, and he had an encounter with the Nation of Israel itself. In fact, a brother of the former president of Israel, Prime Minister Netanyahu, was killed in Uganda in that raid.
Sid Roth: Yes.
Robert Kayanja: So we were going through a lot of fear a lot of time. I was a little boy; we had to jump some dead bodies going to school, and they had no heads because Amin's henchmen had cut their heads off to disguise their identity. And so later on to find out, it was a professor, it was a doctor, it was a politician. And so at that particular time my first encounter was when Jesus Christ appeared to me and He said, "Go bring my people back to me". I was just 17 years old, and I grew up in a kind of a Christian family. My father was an Anglican priest, which we call Episcopalian.
Sid Roth: Yes.
Robert Kayanja: And when He came, it was three p.m. in the evening, in 1979, and He told me, He said, "Don't even worry. Idi Amin is on the way out". And I said, "No, why do You talk to me? Why don't You talk to my dad? He’s right in your business". I didn't want to be a preacher. I didn't want to be a minister of the Gospel.
Sid Roth: Who told you?
Robert Kayanja: Jesus.
Sid Roth: God told you that Idi Amin was on his way out.
Robert Kayanja: Yes.
Sid Roth: Before - he would be - everyone knew.
Robert Kayanja: Before everybody knew. It lasted for seconds, but it was like ages. When I woke up, I moved where my parents were; I told them Idi Amin is going. I could see the picture of Jesus. I had seen some pictures of Jesus in the Bible and in, you know, in our living room, but it was nothing like I saw in that vision.
Sid Roth: What did He look like in that vision?
Robert Kayanja: He was light. He was hope. He was faith. He was what you hope to have. He had a frame of a human being, but it was more glorious than what we see in pictures today, in the artistical pictures we look at. He was real. He speaks in the inside of you. It's like once you look at Him, it's like everything around you is non-existent. And He - I told them, and my parents said, "You are crazy. Shut up. You'll get us all killed". I told them, "On the 11th of April, Idi Amin will be out of this country", and exactly 11th of April, Idi Amin was out of the country.
Sid Roth: In other words, you were told by Jesus the exact day that he would leave.
Robert Kayanja: The exact day, the exact year, the exact season when Idi Amin will go. And even though that happened, I just couldn't believe it. I knew I had seen it, but I didn't know the power that was behind it. And from that moment on I began to - I began to see great miracles happening. Now I see and I know them; they were great miracles by the power of the supernatural. But by then, I didn't know that Jesus was behind it.
Sid Roth: Give me an example of what you saw.
Robert Kayanja: One of it was rain. We didn't have rain during that time for about six months. Everything was drying. The northeast of Kampala where my father was a parish priest, everything was dying. Famine was setting in the country. Food had come from the U.N. to help, you know, supplement, what the people were having. And then that day we walked outside - it was so hot - and I turned around; I told my siblings and my mom, and my dad, and everybody who was there that "Tonight at seven p.m. it will be raining", so everything will be removed outside the house. And there was no sign of rain in the air, but the voice spoke to me and said "Tonight at seven it's going to be raining". And the cloud was very clear; the clouds were very clear. There was nothing you could think that rain was coming, and at seven p.m. it was raining.
Sid Roth: Tell me about the person - you looked in their ear, and the parts of the ear were not even there, and Jesus healed him.
Robert Kayanja: One of the things - the miracle - that happened which is in Denmark, I'm ministering, and there is a little boy comes and he can't hear, He can't speak. And his ears, when we looked inside, I put my fingers there, they were going deeper and deeper. There was nothing stopping my fingers. And the first thing I did was I was scared because it would - I felt I was going to touch his brain. So I pulled out my fingers and there was nothing in there. So I turned to his parents and I said, "What is happening? What's wrong"? And they said, "Well he was born with nothing inside, no ear drum, no three bones of the ears, nothing on the inside of his ear". And so they brought him to be prayed for. And the power of the supernatural, I felt like electricity in my hand. The boy went down.
Sid Roth: Out of curiosity, more than right now, because right now I feel the power of God. Was it even stronger?
Robert Kayanja: It was stronger. I felt the power of God in my hands and all over me. He fell down and as a result he, we picked him up. He can hear. He began to speak.
Sid Roth: Instantly?
Robert Kayanja: Instantly. We looked in his ears and everything is in there. I tried to put my finger and my fingers couldn't go back where they were before.
Sid Roth: That's got to be one of the greatest miracles you've seen.
Robert Kayanja: No.
Sid Roth: No? Hold that thought. That's one of the greatest miracles I've heard of, and he said "No". How about when it happens to you? Don't go away. We'll be right back.
Sid Roth: Hello. Sid Roth your investigative reporter. I'm in awe. I mean, did you hear what Robert Kayanja said, from Uganda? He said he looked in the ear; he put his finger in. He was afraid to put it in because he might touch the brain, because there were no parts of the ear. There was nothing for medical science to heal. And he prayed for this young boy. So he was born that way. Right?
Robert Kayanja: He was born that way.
Sid Roth: And so he never heard.
Robert Kayanja: He never heard. He never spoke. It reminds me like a little boy 11 years old from Russia. I met him in Brownsville, Pensacola revival, and Pastor Kilpatrick brought him on the stage. The boy was deaf and dumb, and he had never spoke. But one of the pastors in the area had adopted him and brought him to the meeting. And when he saw what God was doing on the platform, and the boy was crying, he said, "I'm ready". He was sign reading his speech. And he said, "I'm ready". He came forward. We prayed for him, and he began to speak and to hear as I'm talking to you right now.
Sid Roth: When you see someone that maybe an eyeball was missing, and that person says, "I believe Jesus is going to heal me," do you have faith that that person would be healed?
Robert Kayanja: Yes, and sometimes not.
Sid Roth: How does that work?
Robert Kayanja: Jesus - everybody whom He healed in the Bible, He said, "Your faith has healed you". And He was the Son of God. But one thing happens about faith, that when Jesus comes, even those who didn't have faith will have faith. That's what happened to me at the age of 17, when He came.
Sid Roth: You didn't have faith.
Robert Kayanja: I didn't have faith. I didn't know that miracles would happen; I didn't know. I grew up in Africa where witchcraft is very strong.
Sid Roth: So you're used to the supernatural.
Robert Kayanja: When a witch tells you in Africa you're going die - and you don't have God - you die. It's not like the western witchcraft we talk about, someone running with a broom and shouting, and saying, "Hey, I'm a witch". We're talking about high levels of witchcraft. We are talking about people who have the supernatural powers to turn things around, in a negative sense.
Sid Roth: Give me an example.
Robert Kayanja: I remember after three years after I got my encounter with God, I went to an area where God wants me to start a ministry in the work of God. And there was a strong witch in the area, and he had killed many people. He would send them snakes. He could send the killer bees. He would appear and disappear in many kinds of form. And when he heard I was preaching and we were binding witchcraft, because one of the things God told me is whenever you go, tell the people to surrender their witchcraft potions, their witchcraft traumas, and pieces, and whatever mediums they use, and idols. And what happened, when the man heard about it, he confronted me. He said, "You better leave or you'll die in three days". And everybody told me, "You better do what the man is telling you to do".
Sid Roth: What did you say to him?
Robert Kayanja: At first, as a human being, I was scared. I was raised not to confront my elders, you know.
Sid Roth: Yes.
Robert Kayanja: I was told not to cause trouble. So I went back. But then something rose up inside of me, and I said, "I'm not going to die in three days. It's you who is going to die in three days if you don't repent, if you don't turn to God".
Sid Roth: So it's sort of like a contest now between two powers: the power of God and the power of the witchcraft.
Robert Kayanja: Exactly. But I didn't know it had come to that level; I felt I was speaking back. You know, when Jesus appears, when God appears, when the supernatural ability of God appears, it will help even the weakest people to become the strongest.
Sid Roth: "In my weakness is His strength".
Robert Kayanja: Exactly. Because there's no way you can tell me that David could kill Goliath. The weak David killing Goliath was an act of the supernatural empowering this little boy to destroy a giant, to make the whole story short.
Sid Roth: What happened in three days? Obviously you're here.
Robert Kayanja: What happened was we began to experience situations that we had never experienced before.
Sid Roth: Like what?
Robert Kayanja: I had gone to town, and three of my co-workers, we were going to town to witness on the street. We came back, and there were killer bees on our house; they were everywhere. You couldn't even turn the knob; it was everywhere. And killer bees in Africa, once they come to your house, you don't come back because what they do, they come survey the house. The first thing the bees in Africa do, they come to survey the houses before they bring the queen in. And so what you do once they come in that multitude, they're surveying the house, and then they go and they bring the queen. So they can come any time while you're sleeping, and your entire house or your entire tent or hut will become a beehive in seconds, and you are dead. There's no way to get out.
Sid Roth: Sounds terrible.
Robert Kayanja: It's terrible. So what happened was it was everywhere. And then all of a sudden I said, "God, what are we going to do"? And something - the wind began to blow from every angle, and it blew the bees away. Now the neighbors - we were next to a barracks - they said, "You'd better get out because they're coming back". We thought they're coming back because we know how they operate, but what happened was that day they never came back. So two days passed, and I was scared for my life because the man said I'm going to die in three days.
Sid Roth: And you knew that he could back it up.
Robert Kayanja: I knew he could back it up. There were examples he had already done that supernaturally. I mean, I began to fast and pray, and wait upon God and praise God. So that Sunday, I ate nothing. I stayed in the house with my co-workers, three of them, and we were just worshiping God and praising God. At three p.m. exactly, when that man came to challenge me, on Thursday, three p.m.
Sid Roth: The third day.
Robert Kayanja: That's when he came. But on Sunday, three p.m., when three p.m. came we had a - like a car had crashed on the main street of the road, which comes from Kampala to Masaka - and it was like it knocked somebody. There was a heavy knock. Everybody run down to hear this great noise, and this body of this man - Masaki, who was a great witch in that area who had bewitched everybody - his head was lying in the middle of the road. His body was lying in the middle of the road, but the head was on the side of the road.
Sid Roth: How did that happen?
Robert Kayanja: It was like something came and cut his head off. We don't know what happened. There was no car that knocked him. We heard a great noise and something...
Sid Roth: I know what happened. What happened is the greatest power, Jesus, showed He was real. Don't go away. You think this is good? Wait until you hear what happens next. Be right back.
Sid Roth: Hello. Sid Roth your investigative reporter here with Robert Kayanja from Uganda. And let me tell you something. They know how to raise men and women that can get in touch with God, in Uganda. I want to know something. You see, the Bible says that "…the non-Jew is to provoke the Jew to jealousy". I'm Jewish. You're provoking me to jealously. Why did God pick you for these miracles?
Robert Kayanja: God loves people, and God chose the Jewish people to bring in the seed of Jesus Christ. Jesus was for the whole world. Now I always ask myself, "Why did God choose the Jewish people to bring in the Messiah"? That's the question I have.
Sid Roth: I could - why not someone from Uganda? I could understand.
Robert Kayanja: Yes. I said, "Why did God chose these people, for all these years; that from Abraham - our grandfather Abraham after Jesus Christ - God used no other people on the face of the earth. It was a supernatural work that He preserved a remnant through which a Messiah will be born, so that the hope of the whole world will come. You see, it was not so difficult to get the Gentiles to believe on the Messiah, than to get the Jewish people to believe in the Messiah. Isn't it amazing? It's not so difficult to believe on Jesus Christ, because the whole world around the Jewish community was involved in the supernatural, in the negative sense. People in Africa, people in Asia, they all know the power of the supernatural in the negative sense. They have seen the devil work in their lives. And when Jesus brings that hope to the people - when He brings that message, when they see the cripple walk, the blind eyes open, something triggers; they run; they run. But I tell you, God is about to do a great work in the Jewish nation, and He's going to bring His people to Himself.
Sid Roth: Well it says in the Bible that "… the Jew, that's me, "requires a sign". Have you ever prayed for dead people and they've come back to life?
Robert Kayanja: We have seen over seven dead people come back to life. I have seen it.
Sid Roth: Tell me about one.
Robert Kayanja: One was a little boy in our service, when I was beginning the ministry to get the place where we were, and this boy had been dead for two days. He was nine years old. And when I walked to his house - that place where we set our ministry, where we set our church - and the dead body was in the living room. When people die in Africa, we don't have morgues, we don't have funeral homes, so people, their dead are in the houses; that's where people come for mourning. And this little boy was lying down on a mat covered with a little torn blanket. It was in the middle of the wall; he was dead. And the Spirit of the Lord told me, "Tell everybody to leave the house except the mother". So everybody left the house except me and the mother. And the Spirit of the Lord said to me, He said, "Pick up this boy". Now I felt a cold - drop of cold water dropping on my head down in my body. And what I felt was such a strong force that I could carry this entire building by my own hands. It has happened on me three or four times ever since that. But it was supernatural power of God. And then I picked up this dead boy with his blanket, and I pressed him against the wall, and the boy sneezed. And what happened, I ran out of the room.
Sid Roth: Why?
Robert Kayanja: I wasn't ready for that; I was so scared. And the mother followed me, and the boy followed us as well. And as a result...
Sid Roth: Great man of faith.
Robert Kayanja: I'm not running. And as a result, what happened was the work of God started. And out of that, we've seen a thousand churches planted in the country, and over 3.5 million people come to the Lord in the nation.
Sid Roth: Quickly, because we only have a moment. I want you to pray a fast, supernatural prayer for people to be healed right now.
Robert Kayanja: Dear Heavenly Father, we thank You, because in the name of Jesus, you are a God of hope, and You are a God of mercy. There are those who are sick; there are those who are blind; there are those who are deaf; there are those who are struggling financially. I want you to place your hands where you feel the pain. If you are deaf, put your finger in that deaf ear. If you are blind, touch your blind eye. Or if you have got any sickness, Heavenly Father, we rebuke the sickness and the disease, in Jesus' mighty name. You say in Your Word, that Jesus is working, and the Father is working. And Father, we are not asking You for these little miracles. We are asking for the supernatural power of God to go in every home and every life of everyone, in Jesus' mighty name. Father, we thank You, for You've answered our prayer. And we give Jesus the glory and God the glory, in Jesus' name. Amen.
Sid Roth: There is such a tangible - Robert - presence of God. It's kind of changed; right now it's very peaceful. Why? Do you have any idea?
Robert Kayanja: Yeah, because Jesus has stepped on the stage. And it's not only we are feeling the peace; they, too, are feeling the peace. They, too, are feeling the peace. They, too, are having breakthroughs now, because Jesus is the Prince of Peace. Every time Jesus comes, there will be peace, no matter what the time or the storm has been.
Sid Roth: It's "shalom" in Hebrew. It's the "salam" in Arabic, and it's "peace y'all" in the South - United States. But right now, that peace you're experiencing is so you can have the faith to reach out to know God for yourself. That's what you want. You want to know Him for yourself. It's wonderful that Robert knows God. It's wonderful that I know God. But God wants you to know Him. "There is no other name given unto men in which we must [have our sins washed away] but the name of Jesus" - "Yeshua", the Anointed One - the Messiah. If you believe that the blood of Yeshua washed away all of your sins, you tell God that you're sorry for your sins. He will pour out His love to the point where your sins will be washed away, and you'll have the power to overcome those sins, and you'll be clean in His sight. King David said, "Make a clean heart within me". God wants to make a clean heart within you, and Jesus wants to live inside of you. With your mouth, say, "Jesus, I make you my Lord. Jesus, come inside of me. I want to know God. I want to know His power, His love, His mercy, His shalom, His peace, His completeness". Now, right now, is the time. Go for it! He wants - He's right in your room! Go for it right now, right this second.
