Sid Roth - NDE and Meeting Jesus at Heaven's Gates
Sid Roth - NDE and Meeting Jesus at Heaven's Gates

I've read of burning books on magic arts in the Bible. But! For my guest, new age and occultic books to disappear into thin air when she accepted Jesus, Oi-vey! Interested?

Sid Roth: I have Carlie Terradez here and, Carlie, you were not raised in a Christian home. But at 14, you went to Heaven!

Carlie Terradez: I did. I did.

Sid Roth: Tell me about it.

Carlie Terradez: Well, at the time I had just chronic asthma and I'd had a really serious asthma attack and landed myself in intensive care and during, during that time there I actually died and had an out of body experience. Now, I wasn't raised in a Christian home so I didn't have the language for it. But in that moment, I remember looking down on myself, looking at the doctors working on me, shining their torches in my eyes, their flashlights, and, and um, just just being moved, um, kind of like I was floating really, just kind of floating through a doorway in the hospital room there. And then just really entered a long, long, bright light and just felt, just love and peace. But as I was traveling down that, that hall, like that hallway into the light I felt drawn to the side, to some large gates and as I was standing in front of these huge golden gates and a figure appeared in front of me. And that was the first time when I noticed that I had on a white robe. It wasn't, it wasn't a hospital robe. It was, it was a white robe with my bare feet and standing in front of me, was a figure that put, He just put His finger on my chin and lifted my head up to His face and um, His face just shone so bright and I didn't realize then that I was meeting Jesus. I didn't have the words to describe that. I just, He just, He knew me like, He knew everything about me. And He said to me, "It's not time. It's not your time". And, and I woke up and I was, I was back in the hospital bed.

Sid Roth: And this, she now has just a passionate, something inside of her just to find this One that exuded such love. But she started looking because she had no paradigm on Christianity, She started looking into the new age and got deeper and deeper into not that same thing. And so she cries a desperate prayer. What happened?

Carlie Terradez: I just said, "God, if you're real, I need to know. I need to know. I need you to, I need to know you're real". And the doorbell rang and I ran downstairs and I opened the door and there was, there was a vicar standing there with his black shirt and the white neck collar and,

Sid Roth: A vicar is like, like a priest.

Carlie Terradez: A minister, a priest, yeah, from the Anglican Church. And he was standing there with a, with a track in his hand. And it had a big red question mark on it, it said, "Why Jesus"? And he didn't even get a word out. I just snatched that booklet from his hand and slammed the door in his face. I just knew that was my answer. And I ran upstairs to my bedroom and I read all the way through it and I accepted Christ, prayed the prayer salvation on the back and I just felt the presence of God.

Sid Roth: What a wonderful testimony!

Carlie Terradez: That was the easiest doorstop conversion ever.

Sid Roth: Now, what happened to your collection of new age and occultic books?

Carlie Terradez: Right. Well, after I was born again those books just disappeared from the bookshelf. No one touched them and no one threw them out. They were gone.

Sid Roth: Now, for the first, the first time when you recognize God was speaking to you. You were at a woman's Bible study.

Carlie Terradez: I was.

Sid Roth: And you, you told me that you were suffering from epilepsy. How bad was it?

Carlie Terradez: Yep. I had three or four seizures every day and it wasn't, it wasn't safe, sometimes my husband would come home from work and find me collapsed or he'd get a call from the hospital from intensive care. It nearly killed me several times.

Sid Roth: So, for the first time you recognized God was speaking to you at this Bible study. What did He say?

Carlie Terradez: You know, during that Bible study it was with a different kind of Bible study than my, than my usual church and my friend was, my friend was leading the Bible study and she, she actually just left time in the Bible study for, for kind of a time of meditation. Where, in a sense, we would just listen and hear God and I'd never really done that before. And in that time was the first time I really remember hearing God on the inside of me, said to me, "In two weeks time you can be healed from this if you choose to be". And He set before me in my mind, I saw a vision of a light switch and He said, "I set before you life and death. Choose life! When you're ready just turn, flip the switch, and turn the epilepsy off". I went home from there and I'm just like, "Lord, you know, I need to see, I need to understand what you're saying in the Word of God". And for the next two weeks the Lord showed me in the Word of God how Jesus had a healing ministry and He went around healing all who are oppressed. Went back to that Bible study and in that Bible study my friend said, "I just, I just feel that the Lord is telling me I need to pray for you". So she prays a quick prayer and I just know in my mind I turned that switch, I turned epilepsy off. I went from taking 13 different medications a day and having three or four seizures every day to never having another one of them. And that was 15 years ago.

Sid Roth: Now, this woman is as bold as a lion with the Word of God. She knows! Carlie was bold when she needed healing for herself. But I wonder how bold she was when her 3 year old daughter had days to live. Be right back!

Sid Roth: Carlie, tell me about your daughter, Hannah.

Carlie Terradez: Yeah. When our daughter Hannah was born she had an auto-immune disease and it's called Inocencia Enteropathy. Basically means that her body couldn't take any protein and digest it.

Sid Roth: It sounds awful.

Carlie Terradez: It was horrible and she was three years old but she was the size of a nine month old baby. Her growth was severely stunted. All of her hair fell out. She wasn't able to eat literally any food, she was allergic to absolutely everything. And so we had, we had a feeding, had to have a feeding tube inserted directly, surgically, into the stomach to pump it 23 hours a day within synthetic formula. Not that it would cure her. But in the hope that it could prolong her life. And, and really at three years old, she was sent home to die with a week to live. So when Hannah was diagnosed we thought, "Well, we know that God can heal but does He want to"? We didn't, we had a misconception about the character and the nature of God, that God is really good and He only has good gifts and His will for us is always healing and because we didn't really have that foundation we prayed for Hannah. We were we were pastoring at the time, we loved God. We were fanatic about God but we really didn't understand that God is a good God and He and the depths of which He loves us.

Sid Roth: But He, a CD or a tape got into your hands.

Carlie Terradez: Exactly.

Sid Roth: That kind of, your brain went, tilt! "Oh, I see"!

Carlie Terradez: Yeah. It was a message by Andrew Wommack, and, um, we came across a cassette tape and it was perfect timing. My mom had it in her desk drawer and a chest of drawers, moved her several times, but, she pulled it out. We just said to her we were hungry for the Word of God. We were in a desperate situation and we said, "You know, do you have anything, you have anything at all that can encourage us? We need, We need to get the Word in us". And she said, "Well, I've got this old drawer full of dusty tapes," and she pulled this guy out. We didn't know who he was and um, and that was the first time that we've really heard the gospel of power.

Sid Roth: But the power of imagination came in because you saw something and held on to it tenaciously.

Carlie Terradez: Yes.

Sid Roth: About your daughter.

Carlie Terradez: You know she was, ah, she was 3 years old. She was laying in the hospital bed every day. the doctors would come in and just had, just a horrible report, always negative. And I just asked the Lord, "I need to see it. I need to see what you're saying about Hannah. I know it's your will now for her to be well but I need to see it, gave me a vision, Give me a picture on the inside". And the Lord is so gracious. He gave me three visions and two of those we've seen come to pass but right, right away, I saw her about 4 years old, so about 6 months in the future then, riding a little red tricycle and the next one,

Sid Roth: When she was given a death sentence of two or three days!

Carlie Terradez: She was in a vegetative state at this point. And the next picture was when she was 5 years old, walking in a green school uniform through the school gates on her first day of school. And the third one was Ashley, my husband, walking down the aisle on her wedding day.

Sid Roth: Alright. You listened to this tape of Andrew Wommack, which built your expectation. Then you found out he was speaking near you, right, in England. And, you took her to the meeting and he prayed for her.

Carlie Terradez: Yeah it was, it was totally a God set up. We found out that he was only in the UK one day and it happened to be the very next day. So we got permission from the hospital to take Hannah out of the hospital and we went straight to the conference. And Andrew Wommack laid hands on Hannah and prayed for her and she was instantly healed. Two out of those three things we've seen.

Sid Roth: But I have to ask you this. When you saw those pictures, did you tenaciously hold on to them or did you say, "I hope"! What happened?

Carlie Terradez: I meditated on those. That's really what kept me going. Because when you we have to learn to develop spiritual sight. We have to learn to see by faith. We walk by faith, and not by sight and faith sees the unseen. The imagination is so important. It's linked to ah, to hope. And hope doesn't disappoint. Biblical hope doesn't disappoint. In fact the word, "mind," in the scriptures is, it is also translated, "imagination". Our imagination. We need to start seeing ourselves the way God sees us. He sees us as the healed of the Lord. He sees as walking in health and in wholeness and in His power, And by His Spirit. That's how He sees us. And when we start to agree with His picture on the inside of us it's not gonna be long before we start seeing it on the outside because miracles start in the heart.

Sid Roth: You know, when we return, Carlie will pray for you to flip the switch for your miracle. Be right back.

Sid Roth: Carlie, how important was praying in tongues or in a supernatural language to that woman that was healed.

Carlie Terradez: As I was ministering to that lady, um, she didn't actually, her heart was so broken. She'd been sick for such a long time and hope deferred will make the heart sick. She was so disappointed about just struggling and not being able to receive. Then when she came and met me for ministry she'd didn't actually want to tell me what it was even wrong with her. And she said to me, I'm not going to tell you what's wrong with me. And I just believe the Lord is going to show you. And, and so in that moment I, I just knew that I could only understand that by, the by the power of the Holy Spirit. So I just, I just spent just 30 seconds just praying in the Spirit. And as I did that you know one of the jobs of the Holy Spirit as we pray in the Spirit, He gives us wisdom and revelation, He reveals to us hidden mysteries, things that we couldn't otherwise have known. And as I was listening to the to the, to the Holy Spirit talking to me I just heard the word, liver. I just said, "I don't know if this means anything to you but I just hear the word, I think it's from the Lord, saying the word, 'liver.'" And at that moment, the woman just kind of broke down crying. I thought, "Oh no, I've broken her". Right, I'm supposed to be helping her, I've messed this up. But she was crying because she, she had liver, she had liver failure. And in that moment as we prayed faith rose on the inside of that woman, just as a result of me starting out by praying in the Spirit but one, one word of knowledge was all, was all it took to raise that woman's faith to the point where she could receive and she walked away from that encounter completely healed.

Sid Roth: There's a phrase you use. And I like it. "Do not give a lie permission to land".

Carlie Terradez: Amen. You know, sometimes we hear things and the world is always speaking to us. We live in a world where we're constantly bombarded with information. Some of that information is good. Some of that is just, just lies. It's not true. And we need to be careful what we allow to, to stand in our heart, to land in our mind. You know we cannot stop thoughts coming to us but we don't have to give them permission to land. And when it comes to, when it comes to our experience or even symptoms in our body, they are not the truth. There is a truth that trumps that, that fact, amen?

Sid Roth: James 4:7. You say it makes you bold as a lion.

Carlie Terradez: Amen! "Submit to God, resist the enemy, and He'll flee from us". You know Sid,

Sid Roth: Say that again slowly.

Carlie Terradez: "Submit to God, resist the enemy and he'll flee".

Sid Roth: That's God's Word!

Carlie Terradez: Right? That God's Word, that's James 4:7! You know Sid, I meet a lot, a lot of believers actually that have gotten the submitting to God bit down. They were okay with that. They submitted to God but they don't realize when it comes to sickness and disease that we need to resist the devil.

Carlie Terradez: We need to stand against him.

Sid Roth: And you know, that word resist, that's a strong word.

Carlie Terradez: It is.

Sid Roth: It isn't, ignore. It's resist!

Carlie Terradez: That's right. And, and passivity is like giving the enemy permission. Can't just lay passive and hope he's going to run away from you. And so many Christians just think well, God's just going to take care of it. No. God already did two thousand ago.

Carlie Terradez: Amen! Amen!

Sid Roth: You enforce it! You resist! Okay! Deception is the only weapon the devil's got.

Carlie Terradez: He is! He's the accuser of the brethren. He is the father of lies and there are so many people today that is, that are sick because the devil has deceived them into maybe thinking it's even from God that God's trying to put a sickness on them to teach them something. That's a lie from the pit of hell. Jesus had a healing ministry. He went around healing the sick, casting out devils, raising the dead. Amen?! Everyone that came into contact with Jesus, every single time was healed. But we need to understand that the devil only comes with deception and with lies. And if he could, but he needs our buy-in Sid, he needs us to agree with him in order for him to have any power in our lives and the minute we resist him we cut off his power source.

Sid Roth: You say, you say faith is like a muscle and we should not despise small beginnings and you illustrate it through the life of David.

Carlie Terradez: The reason that David had that, you know, we know David being, for being famous for chopping off Goliath's head.

Sid Roth: Right.

Carlie Terradez: But he faced a giant, many people today are facing giants. They may be called different things, maybe called poverty or sickness or depression or whatever is, you know, your giants have different names. The reason that he was able to run after Goliath with such boldness, and such confidence was because he'd fought the lion and the bear, first. He'd exercised his faith based on some smaller things. And I just want, I just encourage people today Sid, because sometimes people been hearing programs like this and thinking, "Well where do I even start, where do I even begin"? And you know we can start exercising our faith on everyday things. Let's start, let's start exercising our faith muscles, not despising small beginnings. But next time we get a headache rather than popping a Tylenol, let's pray.

Sid Roth: But I'm reminded of this young girl, Carlie, that had, had a little touch of the reality of God. But couldn't put it all together. Well, the truth is, you'll never put it all together because you're not God but I can tell you this, if you'll take that first step, He will run to you. And He will put His arms around you and there's some that are watching right now. You need the love of God to put His arms around you. I want you to say this prayer so that God won't be just on the outside of you but will live big inside of you: "Dear God, I've made many mistakes in my life. And I'm truly sorry. I believe the blood of Jesus has washed away every mistake, And I have a new beginning. And now that I am clean, because of what you did Jesus, I ask you now to come and live inside of me. Take over my life. I make you Lord of my life. Amen". Now, it's time to flip the switch in reference to your healing. Anyone ready to have the light switch come on?! Pray.

Carlie Terradez: Father God, I just thank you for everyone that's watching this broadcast, for everyone that's listening to the sound of my voice. Right now in the Name of Jesus we take authority over every sickness, over every disease, over all pain. Right now, we command sickness and disease to leave your body in Jesus Name. I'm seeing brains becoming whole. Neurological function returning to people right now in Jesus Name. Alzheimer's is leaving, Parkinson's is leaving, right now. There's arthritic conditions, right now, we release the power of God in your body, we drive out arthritic conditions, every bit of pain, every bit of inflammation we command in Jesus Name, limbs to move. Joints to move right now in the Name of Jesus. Lord, I thank you that your healing power is flooding through our brothers and sisters right now from the top of their head to the very soles of their feet, that every ounce, every ounce of sickness, every ounce of disease is draining away from them, pain is leaving. There is, there is, there is bound joints that are becoming loose there. We speak life back into organs that have ceased to function. I declare every organ in your body, full capacity, full capacity, right now, every, every symptom, every lying symptom from the pit of hell, we command it to leave right now. Woman be loosed of your infirmity, be loosed of your infirmity. Right now, Sid, I'm seeing a lady and she has a spine, she has scoliosis of the spine and those vertebrates are lining up, they're lining up, there's straightening coming, there's bones that are growing. Somebody has holes, there's a weakness in your bones, like an osteoporosis, but right now those bones are becoming strong. There is, there is, there is bones where there was space between. Someone has knees, someone's getting new knees, right now, where your bones were rubbing together, new knees are being created, this is Holy Spirit knee replacement! Lord, thank you, thank you, that your power is, is flooding through us. Eyes, eyes see, ears hear, right now in the Name of Jesus. Right now, I want, I want to declare an end to infertility. There are women out here, there, there are married couples that have been trying for a baby for, for years with nothing. You've had parts of your body removed, you have things that don't function, but God is doing a creative miracle inside of you right now. There's ovaries that are coming back to life, right now. We declare health and wholeness over your reproductive system and we declare the fruit of your womb, blessed in Jesus Name.

Sid Roth: Repeat after me, "I have flipped the switch"!
