Sid Roth - She Had Just 10 Minutes to Live. This Is What Saved Her Life
Doctors gave Joy Maloney ten minutes to live. Learn how supernatural languages literally saved her live. Next on this edition of It's Supernatural.
Sid Roth: Hello. Sid Roth your investigative reporter here with Jim and Joy Maloney and I want you to know something. When you hear a supernatural voice from the invisible realm you better listen because the truth of the matter is you started moving in hearing supernatural voices and you gave this woman here a prophecy. What did you tell her back in college?
Jim Maloney: Well Sid, what it was I just felt that the Lord wanted to use me to hear his voice and to share to individuals words of encouragement, comfort and edification. And so one afternoon as I began to step out and minister to various students at Christ of the nations where she and I were attending, I just felt that this word rose up within my spirit and I went up to her, and I prophesied. I said, 'truly the Lord saw you this morning underneath the tree by the picnic table, and I was getting a vision of this.
Sid Roth: Joy, was that true? Were you under a picnic table?
Joy Maloney: Yes. It was about six in the morning when the sun came up I went to a little private park behind our dorm and I was seeking the Lord about our ministry, just as he said.
Sid Roth: Okay. So what else?
Jim Maloney: And then I said, 'you are crying out to God for understanding concerning your life and your ministry'. And I went to say, 'the Lord would say to you, daughter, that truly you will have a ministry among my people'. And the Lord would further say, 'you will marry a traveling minister and have two children'. And tears streamed down her eyes, and I looked at her I never met her before and I said, 'isn't that a great word, sister, God bless you. Hallelujah'.
Sid Roth: Now so everything he was saying, you were saying this was true. What else did you say?
Jim Maloney: Well that was basically it but I married her nine weeks later.
Sid Roth: Nine weeks? You're not impulsive, are you?
Jim Maloney: No, not a bit.
Joy Maloney: We had to fulfill that word.
Sid Roth: But where do you come in on this? Did you know you were going to get married?
Joy Maloney: The Lord had already shown me when I was 17 that I would marry a traveling minister. Yes, I knew that.
Sid Roth: But I'm going to elaborate on that word that you were given way back then and I want you to ponder this. I believe that what God was saying when he said 'my people' he was not talking about Christians per se. I believe that he was talking about Jewish people and I believe it hasn't even started yet, but I believe that you are going to find that you are going to be doing something with Jewish people but by the way, I have found many people that have a supernatural call from God on their life it's almost like the devil doesn't know what it is, but he tries to snuff their life out. That's exactly what happened to you. Tell me, Jim, about the first time God tried to, the devil tried to kill your wife.
Jim Maloney: Well we had just been married about a year or so and she had a cyst that developed within her body and one afternoon it burst and she just began to internally bleed to death. And three or four hours went by and just knew something was wrong and so I rushed her to the emergency ward and it took about a seven-hour process of getting through to the specialist. Well in the meantime, they take her to back room, the various doctors and interns.
Sid Roth: Joy, were you conscious of anything going on at this point or were you out?
Joy Maloney: No, I was very conscious and very much in pain.
Sid Roth: But you were like, how much blood left?
Joy Maloney: Half. Half the blood left.
Sid Roth: Half of your blood left. I don't know a whole lot about that, but it doesn't sound good to me.
Joy Maloney: My whole abdomen had swollen up, just filled with blood.
Sid Roth: That, I mean, are you exaggerating?
Joy Maloney: Well it was quite large. I mean, just very noticeable how much it had swollen up.
Sid Roth: Okay. What happened?
Jim Maloney: Well I was hearing her screaming in the back because they were testing and prodding her, and pushing, and trying to find out what was wrong. And I'm hearing in the back room and I'm in the foyer of the hospital, and I just felt utterly just inadequate, and what do I do, you know. So I just began to pray. Well we believe scripturally that the Lord has blessed us with what's termed the baptism in the Holy Spirit and the heavenly language that is used to help stand in the gap and pray in the spirit, and the Holy Spirit gives us that ability. And so I just began to activate my faith and I prayed like I never prayed before in my life.
Sid Roth: It's a language that your mind did not understand and were you praying this out loud?
Jim Maloney: Well I was in the foyer. Of course they probably thought I was a little strange, but it didn't make any difference what anybody thought, they were sitting around, because this was my young bride and I just kept praying in the spirit and there was tremendous comfort.
Sid Roth: Was this life-critical?
Jim Maloney: This was life-threatening because she was internally bleeding and they couldn't find out what was wrong. There was approximately about four and half to five hours of testing. They couldn't find anything, they didn't know what was wrong. And I'm hearing her, as I said, and I'm praying, and I'm just repeating to the Lord, Lord, this is the young lady that you gave me for a life and lifetime of ministry together. And I kept reminding him, you know, Lord, I gave that prophecy. I'm not yet a traveling minister. We don't have two children. And so I kept reminding the Lord of the promise and standing, and warring, as the Bible says, with the word that God had given me earlier, a warfare, and God just really did intervene very powerfully.
Sid Roth: Well obviously, you're here today.
Jim Maloney: Yes.
Sid Roth: Okay. So that was the first time. Second time, briefly, what happened to her?
Jim Maloney: Well not too far after that season of time, what about a year later, in her lineage or her hereditary, you know, makeup, she had a propensity towards heart issues. Family members had died at an early age because of heart conditions. And so one evening she had taken some medication, had an adverse reaction and it just virtually stopped her heart. She just had a heart attack at 23. And I just rushed into the bedroom and the scripture came to me, Sid. The scripture came to me that in the Old Testament the prophet of the Lord, when the little boy had died had stretched out on the little boy three times and life came back into the little boy. My wife, she was having a heart attack, flush, white.
Sid Roth: So what did you do?
Jim Maloney: I virtually picked her up.
Joy Maloney: I was on the floor.
Jim Maloney: On the floor. She was on the floor, laying on the floor having a heart attack. I picked her up, threw her on the bed. I mean, this boldness just rose up within me and threw her on the bed, and stretched out, and began to, once again, pray in that heavenly language, you see, because I needed the help of the Holy Spirit, his intervention. And as I was praying underneath, she said, what did you say?
Joy Maloney: Well it already felt like a piano was on my chest.
Sid Roth: I don't know if you were that big back then.
Joy Maloney: With him on top on me, yes.
Sid Roth: Not really.
Joy Maloney: No.
Sid Roth: You mean, it had nothing to do with him, that weight that you had.
Joy Maloney: No, but the crushing when you're going into cardiac arrest.
Sid Roth: Could you feel any power coming from him?
Joy Maloney: Oh yes. Oh yes and the severe pain and the knotting of the heart. This power started emanating from his body to mine as a channel of the Lord to me and the anointing of God, which is the supernatural power of God, began to go directly right into my heart. It was like a muscle spasm, so tight, and it began to feel it just start to loosen up, loosen up, and something warm like oil was flowing over my heart.
Sid Roth: Whoa. That warmth, it's starting to pour out right now. We'll be right back after this. But interactive time, get ready to have that warmth come right into you. Be right back after this word.
Sid Roth: Hello. Sid Roth your investigative reporter here with Dr. Jim and Joy Maloney. Three times she almost died, but a supernatural language and supernatural power spared her life. This supernatural language, it intrigues me. Joy, you came from a background that didn't even believe in this. How did you start speaking in this supernatural language?
Joy Maloney: When I was 14, my older brother David received this unusual experience with the Lord and God's presence filled his heart, and he began to speak in another language that he had not learned, and he found that language so useful in prayer and worship.
Sid Roth: Why is this? I mean, to my mind, to speak a language that he had never learned, why is this good? I mean, it's interesting. But why is it beneficial?
Joy Maloney: Well I think our human minds are somewhat limited and we can only dream up certain amount of words and expressions to express ourselves. And we are trying to express yourself to the Lord because that's what prayer is. You're talking to him and he can talk back to you. And you sometimes feel a lack, like I'm just not able to fully express myself like I would like to and in times of worship. You know, there are just so many words in the English language that we have to express ourselves to the Lord. Also I think the Holy Spirit knows how to pray the best way better than we do with our own minds.
Sid Roth: So tell me how this happened to you.
Joy Maloney: Okay. I was 14 and my older brother David had received this experience. I was very confused about it because my family didn't go along with it and I had a habit of going over to my father's empty church every morning. My father was a pastor and I would go pray every morning for my own time with the Lord. One morning I came back to my bedroom and the house was empty. I was all alone and I just began to weep and cry. I said, 'Lord, if this experience that my brother received from you that he says he received from you, if it's real, if it's really from you, I'm just going to ask you to do something unusual right now. I'm going to ask you to tell my brother to come right back home, come in my bedroom, lay his hands on me and pray for me that I can also speak in a supernatural language. Well at that very moment, little known to me, my brother who was walking to the post office, heard an audible voice out of the sky and it said, 'David stop. Go back home. You will find your little sister Joy in her bedroom and she will want you to pray with her to receive the same gift'.
Sid Roth: So when he walked in what did you think?
Joy Maloney: He obeyed the Lord. He came back and sure enough found me in my bedroom crying and he said, 'the Lord has sent me to pray for you to receive the same gift'.
Sid Roth: So what did he do?
Joy Maloney: Well as soon as we began to pray for this gift suddenly my parents came home, the back door screen door closed and he said, 'i know some place we can go, some friends of mine, we'll go to their house'. So we began to walk about a mile up and down streets. I had never met these people before and I was holding hands with my brother. We were very close. And I went into a trance-like state, an altered state where I was disconnected from my surroundings and I thought I was walking with Jesus holding his hand.
Sid Roth: You're holding your brother's hand.
Joy Maloney: I'm holding my brother's hand. My brother had to fill me in later on a lot of details when this happened because I was not coherent of my natural surroundings as we walked. And in fact when we did arrive at the home, he said, even though I was very shy. He said, I just went right between this couple, went between them, didn't say hi, just walked straight down the hall, turned left, went to their couch, knelt down before their couch, lifted my hands to the Lord,' and suddenly the whole wall behind their couch disappeared. It was like billowy clouds all around that I could just put my hands through.
Sid Roth: I must ask you a question. Did you take drugs?
Joy Maloney: I've never taken any drugs in my life and I never drank.
Sid Roth: Were you an alcoholic?
Joy Maloney: I never drank. I don't know what alcohol tastes like.
Sid Roth: Okay. So tell me what's, all right. Go ahead.
Joy Maloney: Okay. And so I was completely unaware of my natural surroundings. It was as though I was caught up in another sphere, another realm and just me and the Lord. And I saw Jesus. I saw his face and his eyes were like the love of the whole universe of all of creation. All the love there ever had been was all embodied in his eyes just him looking at me. He didn't speak a word. And I prayed, I said, 'Lord, I do love you so much'.
Sid Roth: Stop for a second. I want you to look into the camera and I want you to pray that people experience that same love that you experienced at that moment. Would you do that?
Joy Maloney: Yes. Yes. The love of Jesus is so real. It's for every person no matter what your background may be. I may have been raised in a pastor's home. Other people were not. The love of Jesus reaches out to anyone anywhere, anyone who opens their heart and thank you Jesus that that's your will to reach down to everyone who just opens and says, I receive from you because he's real. And that love that I felt, I said, Lord, I wish I had a way to express that love more to you. I wish I had a way to worship you. And in our church we sang this old hymn. It said, 'o for a thousand tongues, 'to sing my great redeemer's praise'. I thought how wonderful that would be to have a thousand languages at my disposal that I could worship the Lord inexhaustibly. And so suddenly I began to sing in this other language. People that know me know that I can't sing. My range is about this long, really little raspy voice. Suddenly this loud beautiful like angelic song poured forth from me and it was in this other beautiful language, and I was just there was just complete freedom to worship him how I wanted the release to worship him.
Sid Roth: Would you do that for one second right now.
Joy Maloney: Sing?
Sid Roth: For a few seconds, yes, right now.
Joy Maloney: Sing?
Sid Roth: Yes, in unknown languages, right now.
Joy Maloney: Well thank you Lord.
Sid Roth: Do you know that as she sings that language, this is what happened. All of a sudden she was praying for hours and hours in this language. And how much of the Bible were you reading after that experience?
Joy Maloney: I did want to finish this one encounter with you if I could. When I began to sing in that language for the first time ever, Jesus, I was seeing Jesus. He didn't speak a word, but he smiled, and I began to sing in that other language and he nodded approval to me. That answered my question forever. I was raised with theologians who combated and said, we don't know if this can be from God, and he answered my question directly that, yes, this is a gift from me.
Sid Roth: And the change in your life afterwards, what was it?
Joy Maloney: Yes. I just couldn't get enough of the presence of God and instead of just going over to the empty church building in the mornings to pray I just wanted to go over there all the time and spend my time in the word and in prayer. And six days later, my dad accosted me about my strange behavior, on the back steps of our house. He said, 'joy, did your brother David give you those tongues'?
Sid Roth: And what did you say?
Joy Maloney: I said, 'no, daddy, David didn't give me the tongues'. And he said, 'oh good. I'm so relieved'.
Sid Roth: So who gave them to you?
Joy Maloney: Well he said, 'I'm so relieved. You've been acting so strange. You just want to stay at the church all the time and you won't watch TV with the family. I was just real worried about you'. I said, 'dad, David didn't give me the tongues, but Jesus did'.
Sid Roth: How would you like Jesus to give you this supernatural gift? Don't go away. We'll be right back after this.
Sid Roth: Hello. Sid Roth your investigative reporter here with dr. James and Joy Maloney. I'm going to tell you something. This supernatural language that bubbles up from within allows you to get into the invisible world. Your peanut brain doesn't know what's going on, but God knows everything. And by being able to pray in this supernatural language, you can literally bypass a lot of junk that goes in your life. But in order to have this gift, you must have an experience with the living God. To have an experience you must tell the living God that you're sorry for the sins that you have committed and believe that Jesus died for your sins. It sounds simple. It sounds clichè-ish, but it will change your life. It's better than religion. It's intimacy with God, what you were created for. If you will say this prayer with me and mean it to the best of your ability, God will give you a gift that is better than anything you ever imagined, his life within you, his peace within you, his purpose within you. Say this prayer out loud: dear God, say it right now with me, dear God, I'm a sinner. Against you and you alone have I sinned and I'm so sorry. I believe that Jesus died for my sins and I believe his blood washes them away, and now that I am clean, say it with me, and now that I am clean, Jesus come inside of me, take over my life. I make you Lord of my life. Now Joy Maloney, I want you to look into the camera and pray that they receive a power encounter with God where they praise God in that same unknown language, not the identical one, the one that God will give them that you received.
Joy Maloney: Thank you, Lord. Father, I thank you that you're the Creator of the universe and that you, just as you extend this free gift of salvation to every creature, every man, every woman and child, just as you extend this gift of knowing that we have eternal life in you so you also extend this free gift of a supernatural language, the empowerment of your spirit to dwell in us and speak through us, Lord, I thank you that it's a free gift for all of God's children. And Lord, I pray that now the power of your spirit will go into these homes wherever anybody is that is praying this prayer along with me right now, saying, Lord, I receive in faith this free gift, this baptism of the Holy Spirit and this prayer language any language you want to give me, Lord, tongues of men and angels, Lord, that I would have the freedom to pray in your spirit. And I receive that gift in faith in Jesus' name. Amen. I believe it.
Sid Roth: Right now there's a sweetness of God just pouring into you right now. If you will, as a form of surrender, you know someone puts a gun in your ribs, what do you do? How about to God? But to God as a form of surrender, tell him how much you love him with the language you speak and then tell him how much you love him. Just go right into a language you've never been instructed in your mind. Tell me one more time, Jim, that you use this language.
Jim Maloney: Well there's been, over the years, many, many accounts where I've had to rely on the intervention of Gods in protection, ministry. But for my lovely wife we've got a great son, he's 25 years of age, but when we were pastoring in the commonwealth of Kentucky, we had some complications at his birth and she just could not deliver my great big, you know, son. And as the doctor was working with her there was something that had torn in her body, and so when the baby came out they could not shut off the membrane that was pumping blood. And so I just watched, just instantly just, you know, her body just began to hemorrhage and the doctor was screaming and saying, 'get him out! Get him out! Run him out! Get him out'! And as I was going out, I just sensed a boldness rise up within me and I began to pray in the spirit, and I just stopped before they pushed me through the door, the nurses pushed me through the door, and I just took authority over that blood flow, and I just proclaimed and decreed that it would stop. And I remember as I was going out the door the doctor was saying, this is the truth no exaggeration the doctor was saying, Sid, 'I'm experiencing something here'. I remember that. 'I'm seeing a miracle'. And right there what had been torn out of her body, the hemorrhaging stopped right in front of him and everything was put into place before his eyes and I remember hearing saying, 'I'm seeing a miracle'.
Sid Roth: What do you mean everything was put into place? What do you mean?
Jim Maloney: Explain it.
Joy Maloney: Well there's a large artery that supplies blood to the baby and it's supposed to shut down right at the time of birth. Instead, it kept pumping, spraying the doctor with blood. There again, I lost half of my blood in just a few moments of time. So there had been a lot of complications. I need not go into all those details what caused all of this, medically speaking. But anyway, there was nothing. We were in a little tiny town of about 3000, way back in the hills with no medical things that they have now. And so it was matter of life and death once again, and the emergency language that the Lord gave my husband to pray over me and to take authority over that situation...
Sid Roth: If you hadn't prayed, would she have lived?
Jim Maloney: Personally, in my observation, no. I was the priest of our home. I had to take responsibility as the priest to stand in the gap for her because she was battling with the situation before her, losing half of her blood in a matter of just a few seconds. And when I took authority in the mighty name of Jesus, it just subsided. In other words, he just watched everything.
Sid Roth: Well I take authority right now and I tell you this. I tell you God is real. I tell you God loves you and I tell you whether you ever speak in a language or not isn't that you've not been instructed. It doesn't mean anything. What counts is intimacy with God. I tell you that if you will reach for God, reach into that visible realm, this is your moment. This is your second in history. Your life will never be the same. God, I must know you. Jesus, I make you my Savior and Lord. Jesus, come inside of me. Become real. I need you.
