Sid Roth - Manifesting Miracles from the Unseen Realm
My guest sees miracles before they actually take place. Then he just acts them out. Next on this edition of It's Supernatural.
Sid Roth: Hello. I'm Sid Roth your investigative reporter here with John Carver. So what happens when you're an alcoholic, you have to have a drink every day to just go on and you're minding your own business so to speak, and you didn't know whether you were in a dream state or you had a vision. But what happened to you?
John Carver: Literally, I had a visitation from God and he pretty much showed me that he loved me. Up to that point I always thought religion was that you were going to go to Hell and when you died if you didn't know Christ as your savior, nobody told me that God cared for me. They always told me that God was a punishing God, a God that didn't have any mercy. That's all I ever heard. The Pentecostal type preaching was all fire and brimstone. This was new to me to have a savior come to me, Jesus Christ, and say that he loved me, just was too much for me to comprehend.
Sid Roth: Did you feel his love?
John Carver: Oh yeah.
Sid Roth: What did it feel like?
John Carver: You cannot look at the noon day sun, but the light from him that, it didn't shine through him, it came from him and that, there was such a warmth, and I couldn't take my eyes off him. And he just, through his eyes and his nail-scarred hand that he stretched out to me, and when I touched it I was totally set free from all the demonic powers that held me bound.
Sid Roth: What about having a drink every day?
John Carver: Didn't need it.
Sid Roth: You mean, just totally.
John Carver: Totally.
Sid Roth: What replaced it? You say you didn't need it.
John Carver: Just a peace. That's all I can tell you. Just a total tranquility. I was a, my brother-in-law told me I was a nervous wreck. Barbers are either gamblers, alcoholics or a nervous wreck, and I was all three. That's what they generally say.
Sid Roth: The next time you had a visitation you were reading a magazine about a famous healing evangelist by the name of A. A. Allen and what happened?
John Carver: I had pretty much the same experience where the presence and the power of God came to me and said, "I will use you like this if you pass your test".
Sid Roth: Use like this, in what way?
John Carver: There were all kinds of healings on there, people who had tumors, wheelchair, stretcher cases, people who had all kinds of ailments, diseases, crippling diseases, back troubles, all kinds of different things that depicted on the front of that magazine was called "Miracle Magazine" and it had A. A. Allen praying for these people. And when I looked at it, it was just a phenomenal experience that took place. It's hard to put in words.
Sid Roth: How many years ago was that?
John Carver: This was over 32 years ago.
Sid Roth: Well have you passed the test?
John Carver: Well I would like to think I have because I see those things in my own ministry.
Sid Roth: Tell me a little bit about A. A. Allen.
John Carver: A. A. Allen was a very controversial minister. His ministry started 1950, went through 1970, June of 1970 when he passed away. But he had one of the most outstanding ministries of all the ministries that I've ever studied. It seemed that he had tremendous variety of gifts, working spiritual gifts, working in his life and he had a charisma about him that I don't think I've actually seen in anybody else. Everybody pretty much has their, a personality that's depicted in one way or another. But he had one that would just surpass all those men that I've studied.
Sid Roth: He knew things before they would happen.
John Carver: Yes. Actually, he was very prophetic. He would have visions in advance of his meetings and from listening to, we had 10,000 radio tapes. So listening to those tapes kind of gives us a window into his ministry. And what would happen, it would be like a TV set would come on and he would see certain events. It would be like, as a kid setting in a theater. When I was eight years old they used to have previews of coming attractions and you would get little clips of what the movies were going to be in the weeks to come. Well that's how I understand it to what happened in his ministry and he would see events, and then when he would go into the tent meeting.
Sid Roth: He would act it out.
John Carver: All he did was literally act it out.
Sid Roth: Now John Carver has the best collection of archives. We have a video clip of A. A. Allen and John said that what you're about ready to see doesn't exist right now on Planet Earth to this level because we have a generation that have not understood the ways of God. But it's about ready to change. Let's look at A. A. Allen.
Sid Roth: Wow. That A. A. Allen, I understand he was phenomenal with cancers.
John Carver: Yes. My understanding is I've talked to physicians and they viewed some of these tapes, and they said for people to get up like that and being prayed for is almost impossible because of their condition.
Sid Roth: They don't have the energy.
John Carver: They don't have any strength. And he just had a supernatural ministry when it came to dealing with cancer.
Sid Roth: Almost automatic?
John Carver: I would say so, yes.
Sid Roth: That's, he also knew what would happen in the future. Now he died in 1970, but he saw what's going on in the world today. What did he see, briefly?
John Carver: A terrorist attack on America.
Sid Roth: He saw that. Anything after the terrorist attack did he see?
John Carver: Not that I've been told or recall except for the ways it was coming, the biological warfare.
Sid Roth: He saw biological warfare. Anything else?
John Carver: Missile attack, whatever we want to define as.
Sid Roth: Imagine that. In 1970, he saw these things. Well we're going to see two more people, a man by the name of Branham that really intrigues me because he knew who had the faith to be healed. And I believe in Yeshua's name that many of you, that's Jesus' name, many of you are going to be healed as you see Branham. We'll be right back with an actual clip of this great man of God. Don't go away.
Sid Roth: Hello. Sid Roth your investigative reporter here with John Carver. Did you see that video clip of A. A. Allen? And this man knew things before they happened. For instance, John Carver, you told me that he knew about certain attacks in America, and this was in what year?
John Carver: Actually, 1954, he had this vision.
Sid Roth: What did he say?
John Carver: He saw the invasion of America through terrorism, and germ warfare and gas warfare coming like a huge cloud coming down from Canada.
Sid Roth: And that's where some of them came from.
John Carver: Actually, yes sir.
Sid Roth: That is amazing. But the one, as you know, you're an Allen fan.
John Carver: Right.
Sid Roth: I'm a Branham fan.
John Carver: Right.
Sid Roth: Tell me about Branham.
John Carver: William Branham had a tremendous visitation from God. That's the best I can explain him. God gifted him with a word of knowledge that everybody else has tried to pattern. He just...
Sid Roth: You can't pattern this. It's from God.
John Carver: But he's the watermark on word of knowledge.
Sid Roth: But for those who don't know, for those that don't know what a word of knowledge is, explain that.
John Carver: A word of knowledge basically is that you get a word, not total knowledge from God, but a portion of knowledge, information that comes from God about certain things and then the person who God is using conveys that. That's called prophecy.
Sid Roth: Now actually God operates that way through you, also.
John Carver: Yes he does, sir.
Sid Roth: Tell me about one thing that comes to mind where God either used a word of knowledge or seeing an event before it happens.
John Carver: When I first was beginning to be used by God, a word of knowledge came through a vision and showed me my meeting that I was going to go into, my first revival meeting. And as I went there exactly the people were there who he said. And the thing that really topped it off, there was a man blind there that came in the prayer line who was healed, and I saw that in advance. So it gave me faith.
Sid Roth: The first time that you prayed for someone.
John Carver: The very first time.
Sid Roth: But you don't need faith if you see it in advance and you know it's going to happen.
John Carver: Well I can't speak for everybody. But if I had to pray for somebody without God dealing with me about it, I'd be scared to death.
Sid Roth: What was it when they took pictures of Branham one picture had something over his head. What was that?
John Carver: Well they considered it a supernatural sign from God, putting more or less God's seal on him, and it was like a halo in a sense.
Sid Roth: Almost like a fire.
John Carver: Right. Actually on this, prior to the video clip, he actually talked about that. I wish I would have left it in. And it's like, yeah, like a fire.
Sid Roth: You know, this was a photographer that was paid by someone that wanted to prove Branham was a fake. He took his picture and when he saw what was on it, because he took it. He knew no one touched it up. He saw this almost like a halo, like a fire, a flame over his head. But forget that. Take a look at how this fellow Branham operated. Let's go to the clip.
Sid Roth: That's amazing. John, would he know something about every single person that he had no way of knowing that was in that particular line?
John Carver: I've done interviews on ministers who have been in his meeting and there was no way that knew. They tried to trick him. They brought people up that tried to deceive him and he knew. He would just automatically know. The gift just worked in him so phenomenal.
Sid Roth: Was everyone healed in that line?
John Carver: Pretty much. Pretty much. And he didn't pray for a lot of people at one time. They gave out prayer cards and they numbered them, and he would only take a few. And by that time he would be so exhausted because of this power on him. It just drained him and he would literally collapse at times.
Sid Roth: Listen, you think Branham is something. Wait until you see Coe, the wild man. We'll be back right after this.
Sid Roth: Hello. Sid Roth your investigative reporter here with John Carver who has archived some of the greatest healing ministers the world has ever known. And there was a wild man, literally, that's a polite way of describing Jack Coe. Tell me a little bit about him.
John Carver: Jack Coe was a man who had simple faith in God. And if God told him to do something he would do it, and by him doing that created such controversy that people criticized his very bold and courageous faith, actually dangerous faith.
Sid Roth: Give me an example.
John Carver: Well he would pray for people and put his knee in their back, and he would literally reach up and grab a hold of tumors and squash them, and just pull people out of their wheelchairs, take their canes away and break them, and just, he had a whole faith. It's hard to describe this man. You got to see it to believe it.
Sid Roth: But you kind of picked a lot of this up yourself by hanging around these videos and audios, and books. For instance, there was someone with scoliosis.
John Carver: Right.
Sid Roth: Tell me about that person that you prayed for.
John Carver: Right. There was a lady who came into our meeting. There was about 125 people in that meeting and she was the first person, and the pastor was very skeptical of miracles. And a boldness just came over me, and I just picked her, her face was actually laying on her shoulder and I...
Sid Roth: Like frozen?
John Carver: Yeah, like frozen. She came up like this and her back was all twisted, and I just grabbed her head and put it back in place.
Sid Roth: But wait. What if you would have cracked her neck when you did that?
John Carver: I didn't think about that.
Sid Roth: Why did you do that?
John Carver: Because it was such a boldness on me. I mean, there was just a power of God that was on me, a supernatural grace. And it doesn't happen all the time, but when it does happen I know it, and I'm not afraid to move on it. The fear is gone.
Sid Roth: You pulled her neck on, like this, which was frozen, probably for many years, I would think.
John Carver: She was probably in her 70s.
Sid Roth: And you pulled it straight.
John Carver: She straightened right up.
Sid Roth: What did she say? What did she do?
John Carver: Oh she screamed and yelled, and ran all over the place.
Sid Roth: Okay. What are we going to see with Jack Coe in this video?
John Carver: Jack Coe is praying for two people who have tumors. One is a growth in the neck and another lady has one on her arm. And he just reaches and grabs it, and squeezes it.
Sid Roth: I mean, can you imagine someone that would just grab a tumor with their hand and just squeeze it? Cancer, squeeze it. The power of God is so strong. Let's go to that clip right now with Jack Coe.
Sid Roth: John Carver, I mean, you've been hanging around these videos. You've been hanging around these books, these cassette tapes. What went on inside of you hours and, you literally, that was your Bible school watching these things. What happened to you?
John Carver: Well just in Jack Coe's films we did this. It took us one year, one month and one day, eight hours a day to transfer, to save them. And it built faith in my heart that if God can use those people he can use me. And that's what God did.
Sid Roth: Can he use right now? Would you look in that camera and pray for someone that is saying, why not me? Why can't I be healed?
John Carver: Sure. It's just a point of contact.
Sid Roth: Right now.
John Carver: Right now, Father, in the name of Jesus, with everybody that's in the television audience, put your hand on the TV, or if you can't do that just raise your hands towards the picture and agree in prayer with me that if any two of us shall agree as touching anything, that means your disease, your disability or whatever your problem may be, Jesus Christ can set you free right now. Father, in the name of Jesus, I call for the healing power of Jesus Christ to come alive in everybody that's crippled, diseased, blind, cancer. In the name of Jesus Christ, be made whole right now for the love of God is there to help you through your situation. So be healed right now in Jesus' name and turn your faith loose.
Sid Roth: When you say turn your faith loose, what do you mean by that?
John Carver: There's a point of contact. Oral Roberts used to say it years ago. There's a place where you make contact with God through is Word. His Word tells us that he loves us and that he's there to minister to us. And releasing your faith, everybody's got faith, but we just don't use it.
Sid Roth: Are you going to use your faith right now? There's an old expression: use it or lose it. He sent his Word and healed you. Someone's spine, I mean, I see it right now. Someone's spine, and I'm wondering if you saw that, too.
John Carver: Yes.
Sid Roth: I almost feel like you did. Someone's spine was just straightened.
John Carver: Right. Right. People who are with back problems, because that's why we use that example. The Holy Spirit knew that. And so people are being set free from that now.
Sid Roth: Anyone with a back problem, you heard what John said, reach towards it. How do you reach towards it? Well what I would do is I'd stand up and I'd bend over, and you are healed. I mean, you are healed.
John Carver: Yes.
Sid Roth: I can't see it, but I see it. It's happening all over the world people are being healed. And once someone is healed of one thing, ha, all things are possible. See, it was demonic stuff that was stopping you from being able to walk pain-free. In the name of Jesus, I bind every spirit of infirmity that is, there's a spirit that is blindness, that is blinding you, deafness affecting your hearing, pain, arthritis. All spirits of pain, I bind you. Spirits of nervousness, I bind you. Spirits of fear I bind you in Jesus' name. Backs are healed in Jesus' name. I command all these spirits of infirmity be gone now in Jesus' name. And let, oh, here it comes, it's literally, John do you feel it?
John Carver: Yes.
Sid Roth: It's coming right through the television. It's coming. Just receive it. Whatever your need, do something you could not do because this is your moment now, right this second. Now reach out. Not tomorrow, not yesterday, now, now, now, now, now, now, now!
John Carver: Amen.
Sid Roth: I'm getting excited over this. How about you?
