Sid Roth - I Saw an Angel with These 4 Names Written on Him
Sid Roth: Hello. I'm here with Keith Miller. Keith was raised in a non-Christian, a nothing home. He had no foundation, and no interest in Jesus. He found himself married, and his wife critically ill. He's driving his car; he thinks he's alone. But he's not. What happened?
Keith Miller: Well, I started praying, because we had received bad news for my wife, and that she had a disease that could not be cured. There was no cure for it. And at that time, I mean, my wife and my boys were the most important thing to me.
Sid Roth: So why did you pray?
Keith Miller: You know, that's kind of crazy. I didn't know, really, a reason why, I just knew to pray. And I just said a simple prayer. I just went, "Hey God, how about healing my wife"?
Sid Roth: That's simple.
Keith Miller: Yeah. But what happened next was amazing because I heard audibly, "Okay, I will"! And it just...
Sid Roth: I bet you were scared.
Keith Miller: I actually slammed on the brakes, pulled over on the side of the highway, jumped out of my pickup, and looked around and, I had an extended cab... I wanted to see if somebody was in the back. Nobody there. I was shaking, got back in, and then I heard this statement, "But where am I the rest of the time in your life"? And at that point, I just begin to see my life, how hurt and bitter and empty I was, and I just begin to cry. And I hadn't cried in years and cried all the way home. Got home, called my wife. She was already at the doctor to go in for treatments. Called her at the doctor, got her on the phone. I say, "Babe, what's going on"? She said, "You're not going to believe it. They said it was a mistake. I'm just fine"! And so, I right there hung up the phone, fell down to my knees, and said, "Okay, Jesus, I don't know how to do this thing, but if You're real, here I am. I give You my life". And I got born again.
Sid Roth: And from there after, you got a little bit more.
Keith Miller: I did. I was open to the Scripture. One of the things I read about was, somebody named Holy Spirit.
Sid Roth: Now when you asked to be filled with the Holy Spirit, did you have any sort of experience?
Keith Miller: I did. It was amazing. And it was so awesome, I didn't raise my voice. I talked in the soft whisper for three weeks after that, because it was such a profound encounter. I didn't want to lose what I had received.
Sid Roth: So, in 1994, you're minding your own business, watching television, and you saw something that really attracted you.
Keith Miller: I did. Because during that time when I received the Holy Spirit, I had recurring visions. And one of the things I kept seeing myself is praying for the sick. And I didn't have anything for that, I mean, I just saw myself praying for the sick. And these are just from the early days of when I'm raw, first born again. And so, several years passed, and I had not seen that. And I'm watching TV, and I see this little boy. I'll never forget. Because this little boy said, "They made fun of me at school, they laughed at me because I couldn't run. But look, God just healed me"! And he went running across a platform. And the mom was crying, the dad was crying, the minister was crying, and I was crying. I was going, "That's what I want, right there, Lord".
Sid Roth: And then shortly thereafter, you found yourself in the back of a church, and you had a God encounter.
Keith Miller: I did. It was amazing. I actually said, "Lord, I come for an impartation. I want the anointing". And Sid, you know, I want to see, I'm tired of people coming to the altar and leaving the same way they came. We see people respond, but they leave the same way they come. Something's got to change. "You promised us power in Acts 1:8. I want that power, precious Lord". And all of a sudden, I felt, first of all, somebody touched the back of my neck. I said, "What"? You know, I turned around, but I was in the last row. There was nobody behind me. So, I immediately closed my eyes. And all of a sudden, just like a drenching of oil came upon me, and I knew the Lord had granted me an anointing of the Holy Spirit.
Sid Roth: And after this impartation of oil, everything dramatically changed. Tell me about an area you went to in Albuquerque, New Mexico, called the "war zone"?
Keith Miller: That's right, yes. The invited me to come into this little church, they had a real small congregation in what they called the "war zone". In fact, the pastor actually carried a gun with him, because he had had several people killed in his parking lot. So, I went there and started preaching and ministering, and the Lord, I literally healed this man. It was amazing, because the man had been in this head-on collision, literally crushed one whole side of his face. And he literally hit the floor, let out a sound, and when he jumped up, his face had been completely rearranged, and he was completely one hundred percent healed.
Sid Roth: And for some reason, a lot of the new agers are in that area of the country.
Keith Miller: Yes.
Sid Roth: And they came to your meetings. What effect did it have on them?
Keith Miller: It did because they heard of the signs and wonders. It was a draw. So, when they heard about the different people that were being healed and so forth, one of the main teachers came. And when I prayed for her, she hit the floor, and was completely set free. Stood her up, led her to Jesus, and she got wonderfully born again.
Sid Roth: Did that have an impact in other new agers?
Keith Miller: It did. Every night, it was amazing, because the meetings were growing and growing and growing. And I was thinking, where else do these people come from? Well, she had gone back, and she started inviting all her classes every night to come. In fact, even after the revival stopped, for five years, she taught Bible there in the new age community, leading people to Jesus. I still, to this day, 30 years later, pinch myself because of the goodness of God. It's like the best of the best. And what He did in my life, and even receiving the anointing, I realized that it wasn't who I was, but it's who He is. And as the Bible said, He's no respector or people, he can do the same thing for anyone.
Sid Roth: Well, Keith received a revelation from God through three supernatural encounters. But it wasn't just for him. You see, God commissioned him to release it to you. Next.
Sid Roth: So, Keith has operated in what I consider a major miracle, strong anointing. And one day, God's speaks to you. Was it audible, or in your spirit? What did He say?
Keith Miller: Well, it was interesting, because the Lord has started creating a deep hunger within me. Before, when I won the anointing, when I saw on TV, that was out of desperation. I wanted to see people change and transform, as what the Scripture said, just like anybody that's watching right now, He's no respecter of persons. Maybe your hearts filled with wanting to see signs and wonders and miracles. You can receive that anointing right now. You can just ask, just like I did right there in my front room for that anointing, He'll do it.
Sid Roth: Lead a prayer right now.
Keith Miller: Yeah, I just, I felt that. Father, I just pray for that person right now. Father, I thank You that there's no distance between me, You, and them right now. And I thank You for that fresh oil. I thank You for that anointing from the head to toes, toes to head, that anointing to bring honor and glory to Jesus, that He's the same today, He'll be the same tomorrow, and He'll be the same the next day. And He's still doing miracles, He's still setting people free. He's still healing. And I thank You right now for that kind of anointing to be poured out for that one watching right now. Praise be the Lord, just receive that in faith in Jesus Name, amen. Amen!
Sid Roth: Now you provoke me to jealousy, Keith, because he hasn't had one angelic visitation. He hasn't had two angelic visitations. But he's had three major angelic visitations. Tell me about the first one.
Keith Miller: Well, it started with the Lord asked me a question. And I was hungry. And it was a different kind of hungry. It wasn't desperation, it was a supernatural hunger that the Lord initiated. And He actually said to me, "Do you want to know the Holy Spirit like I know Him"? Of course, that caused me to say, "Well, how do you know Him," and dived in the Scripture and started going into the Scripture and studying everything there is. So, I'm in a revival meeting, and during worship, I'm caught up in this encounter. And I see this busting, big, huge, angel in the vision. Now I'm not used to these types of visions. I'm going, "What is going on"? And all of a sudden, He says, "Open your mouth," and He threw this book, like, scroll thing to me, and I ate that scroll book. And I sat down, and even my staff and my wife said, "What just happened to you"? And I said, "I ate a book, or something". And so that was the first encounter. Of course, immediately I went in the Scripture to see, what is this? What has taken place? And then the next encounter was, I get up early in the morning, and felt to go to the office. I walk into the front door, into the foyer of our office, we have a long hallway, and the office is filled with the tangible, fiery, electrical presence of the Lord. I kicked off my shoes...
Sid Roth: And by the way, as you're speaking, I can feel it's almost like you live it when you say it.
Keith Miller: Yes, that's right.
Sid Roth: But you relive it experientially. But go ahead.
Keith Miller: That's right. And as I'm walking, I look down the hallway, and there the big angel was, not in a vision, I wasn't having a vision, he was there. Now you'd think I'd stay cool, no, I was undone. I mean, I was shaking. I dove into my office.
Sid Roth: I'm sorry, I have to ask you something. What did he look like? Did he look like a real person? Was he... could you see through the angel?
Keith Miller: No, I couldn't see through him. He looked like a person, but he was extremely huge, like he was probably at least seven to eight-foot tall, really strong in his physique. But...
Sid Roth: That's a little intimidating!
Keith Miller: Well, not only that, he exerted authority. It wasn't just his size. And what was, he didn't have a look like, "Hi, how are you doing"? He had his arms crossed, just like that. Looked at me like that. It was undoing. I mean, it wasn't like, "Oh, wow, an angel", no. I dove into my office, and immediately went into a series of visions from the Holy Spirit about the counsel of God. And then after the Holy Spirit...
Sid Roth: What's the counsel of God?
Keith Miller: Well, I had been praying, "Lord, when I go into cities and regions, I don't want to just preach a message. I want to preach that builds the kingdom in that area, in that group of people. So, I need Your counsel". So, I had been really asking for that. And when I was in my office, amazing, it was like the Lord pulled down these screens in heaven, and I could see it. And He said, "From this point on, you will have my counsel". That is what He told me. And I asked the Holy Spirit, I felt the Holy Spirit lift it from me. And I said, "What about the guy in the hallway"? He said, "Well, you need to see, because He has names written on each shoulder, and his legs". So, I'm sure all of heaven's laughing at me. It's wasn't like, let me just check it out. I kind of peeked around the door to see if He was there. Sure enough, He was still there. And so, I jumped out there, and I looked at that angel, and sure enough he had Strength, Stature, Kingdom, Dominion. And as soon as I saw the names, he was gone. But I knew that was an invitation, the Lord, for me to begin to study, what is His Strength and Stature? And what the Lord showed me what was coming, we could not, and I could not, facilitate this out of my own strength, out of my stature, to see Kingdom Dominion. So that began the study of the Scripture and ask for the tremendous impact on the strength of God in my life, and how to live out of that strength, and then of course to grow in the stature of Christ in me. And then after this, Sid, I had already had a set of meetings set up to do a seven-day revival. Went to that meeting, and I said, okay, I'm going to ask for the counsel of God. It's one month later, so I lay out on the floor, and immediately I'm in the Throne Room. Now when I'm in the Throne Room, the Lord's just blazing light, blew like that. My hair is just, my fibers of my being are literally, like, undone, if you would. It's just, like, I mean, first of all, I can't believe this is happening to me. And so, the hand of the Lord come out, His right hand, and He had an envelope. And He handed that to the same angel, this is the third time I've seen this angel, same one, and He handed it to the angel, and He handed it to me. And it was funny because I was shaking. I dropped the envelope. He picks it back up and hands it to me. And I open up the envelope. There's no letter in there, there's no piece of paper. It's living, and it has two passages of Scripture. And the two passages of Scripture are Revelation 4:5 and Isaiah 11:2.
Sid Roth: Which says...?
Keith Miller: Well, from the throne, proceeds lightning, thunders, and voices. And around the throne are seven lamps, which are the seven Spirits of God, Revelation 4:5. And then Isaiah 11:2 says, "The Spirit of the Lord shall rest upon Him, the Spirit of wisdom and understanding, the Spirit of counsel and might, the Spirit of knowledge and the fear of the Lord". And that was the two passages.
Sid Roth: And what did that mean to you?
Keith Miller: Well, at first I had no idea. But I know the next seven days' meetings were some of the most incredible meetings. I was getting names of people on another stage; titanium bars and people's backs were disappearing. Healings took place. It was amazing because of the encounter. So, I started studying. And I had no idea what these passages, Scriptures meant. And I just, "Our identity as kings," the Scripture says we are to search out a matter, which means dive into the Scripture. And immediately I began to study, and of course that's started the wonderful life study for me on the Seven-Fold Flow of the Holy Spirit. And I had prayed and asked to know the Holy Spirit, why Jesus knows Him. And in Revelation 3:1, it actually says, "Jesus has the seven Spirits of God".
Sid Roth: Well, if someone's filled with the Spirit, why is it necessary for them to understand the seven flows of the Holy Spirit?
Keith Miller: Great question. And it's for every believer. Well, the dynamics of the river are different than the gifts. We're grateful for the gifts, the power of the Holy Spirit, the fruit of the Holy Spirit. But the rivers, according to Jesus, he said in John 7:37, 38, that "Out of our innermost beings shall flow these rivers of the Holy Spirit". The rivers is what Paul prayed in the apostolic prayers of Ephesians 1:17, "May the spirit of wisdom and revelation"...
Sid Roth: Though each one is like a separate river.
Keith Miller: Is perpetual. The gift's one-time, it's operation for that moment. But the river is perpetual, it's constant, and it's ever-increasing. And it's for the believer's life, but not only for the believer's life, but also through the life, for the life, for the glory of the Lord. He wants to see the activity of those dynamic flows in every believer's life. He wants to see the well uncapped, to see those rivers flowing.
Sid Roth: Are you ready for Keith's biggest revelation? I mean the biggest of all, the majestic Glory of God, and he's going to demonstrate and impart. Be right back.
Sid Roth: I have to tell you, Keith, I am thrilled over this next revelation you had about the majestic glory. Tell me how that happened.
Keith Miller: Yeah, I was at a cowboy church up on a mountain, actually preaching. And the Lord told me to stay the night there in that town, because it was Rosh Hashanah, and I'm going to meet with Him. Right at 4:00 a.m., I walked through the door, and since I walked through the door, I heard the voice of the Lord, audible voice of the Lord, say, "Welcome to the majestic glory". And immediately, it's like this expanse just opened up, and all of a sudden, I could just see the vastness of God, the magnificent, which is over, I actually was so overwhelmed, I actually lost my breath for a moment. But for the next 90 minutes, I just saw scene after scene after scene. Right over here, I watched, He was showing me what it looked like when the angels were dispatched, because I actually saw a myriad of angels, thousands of angels coming down. And over here I actually saw the rolling glory. And I believe it was some majestic glory. It wasn't like just a cloud, but it was literally rolling, red, orange- beautiful. I mean, really, words don't adequately describe what happened. Then I saw four flashes, and it just went, "sheew, sheew," which I know Ezekiel 1 says that those are like cherubim in the flashes, like lightning. And I kept watching all these scenes. And then I begin to hear about the creativity of God, about how new writings are going to come forth, new innovations going to come forth, that new things were breaking through. And, this is a key thing, too, as Mark 6:2 says of Jesus, that "He moved with such wisdom, with dunamis". It said, "mighty works were performed by His hand". And the Lord told me, "I'm looking for those who I can release power to with My wisdom, to see those mighty works performed". And so I believe right now, even as people are watching, even in their homes, because the Blood of Jesus made this available for every believer, it says in second Peter that actually, when they heard the voice on the mountain, they described the voice as the "majestic glory". It says that Jesus said, "This day, I'm going to sit on the right-hand side of Majesty". In Psalms 145, Verse 5 is a verse the Lord gave me, it says, "I will meditate on this glorious splendor of His Majesty". And that word there literally means, set your mind, set your heart, ponder, chew, study everything you can about the majestic glory, because He wants to release His majestic glory in a great way. Jesus has now made this available to you. You have access to the majestic glory, who is the Father. You have access to the presence of the Father, His splendor, His magnificence, His excellence. And guess what it's going to release for you? The awe of God. When that presence of that tangible, weighty, majestic glory comes in, listen, what takes place is called awe. Oh, my goodness, how mighty, how glorious, how awesome He is. It begins to transform you inward, so you live out the fullness of what Jesus Christ has done for you. So, I'm about to pray for you. It doesn't matter where you are. This wonderful blessing of the majestic glory, I believe you're going to literally have your front rooms, wherever you are, filled with His glory. Get ready. Father, Father, we thank You. You are the majestic One. You are majesty. And we thank You because of the precious and the holy and the glorious Name of Jesus, that we can now come into your majestic glory. Oh, Lord, Father, thank You for Your glory to fill our homes, fill our lives. Let Your glory be known through our life. Let Your splendor, Your glorious, Your magnificence, and Father, we thank You. That is not a one-time thing, but we abide in Your majestic glory. So, I take authority over every disease, every sickness. I take the authority over cancer. You are made whole now in the might Name of Jesus. You are literally created to thrive because of the presence of the Lord. And because you have access to the majestic glory, you will thrive, you will flourish. And every bit of sickness and disease must now go in the holy and mighty Name of Jesus. I'm praying for you that are tired, a weariness, the forerunners, the trail blazers, the pioneers. Oh, my goodness, I feel that anointing right now. I pray for His majestic glory to bring new strength to revive, rejuvenate, repair. And one of the words for "repair" in Psalms 103 is to "Sharpen your sword". He's going to sharpen your cutting edge. New level, new level, new level. Everything goes to another level in the majestic glory of His presence. And thank you for activation of the seven-fold flow. Let those rivers flow in the Name of Jesus. Amen. Hallelujah!
