Sid Roth - What's Ahead in These End Times and How to Prepare
TOPICS: End times

My guest was shown that our technology and our electricity will be wiped out. No TV, no cell phones, no GPS, not even cars.

Sid Roth: I'm here with Colonel James Durham, and, James, you've spent a career in the military, over 30 years. Your faith has been so stretched by your supernatural stories of what happened to you in the military. You had visions. You've visited Heaven many times. Tell me what you saw about our power grid going down?

James Durham: This was actually a two-part series of visions. In the first one, I was, well, suddenly I found out myself translating the spirit to a place, and it looked like an ancient factory. Everything was made out of wood. There was very little metal there, but in the middle of this open bay, there was an absolutely huge machine, and as I looked at it, I had never seen anything like that in my life, and my thoughts were, "There's probably no one on Earth alive today who knows how to operate that machine, but at one time, people knew how to make that machine work," and it had long leather belts on it that I thought were probably attached to a water wheel or something to make the power for the machine, and the Lord said to me, "There's a time coming when people are going to have to learn again how to build and operate machines that don't require electricity or fossil fuels," and wow, so then I suddenly went into a different place in a vision, and I was walking through this large area, and it looked really desolate, and I saw tools that had been just discarded there, and there were many, many different kinds of tools, and it looked like some kind of, really, raging fire had swept through the area, and some of those big metal tools had actually melted together and become totally useless. As I continued to walk, there was a pile of computers, totally useless, no electricity, no grid, no Internet, and then I saw cell phones on the ground, and I heard the Lord say again, "A day is coming when all of these things that you've become accustomed to are going to go away because of the power grid, and you will have to learn to trust in Me, and you will have to learn to do things in different ways".

Sid Roth: You also had a vision in which Jesus said to you, "I'm coming soon, and My people are not ready". Is this why you wrote your book on prepping because the world just doesn't need another book on prepping?

James Durham: Absolutely right. In a series of visions, and in two of them, that's when the Lord spoke to me this way, and I saw the Lord coming with a white-robed army of heaven, and they were on horses. They're coming my way, and I'm excited about seeing them, but just as they got to me, Jesus stopped, and He looked right into my eyes, and He said, "Behold, I'm coming very soon, and My people are not ready," and there was a sadness in His voice on that last part, and then a few days later, I was in Heaven again and the same kind of experience, and Jesus rode right up to me, and He said something a little different this time. This time, He said, "Behold I'm coming very quickly, and My people are not prepared," and I felt this strong urging in my spirit that the Lord was telling me, "You and others need to begin to prepare, and you need to teach other people how to prepare and not to do some of the typical things that people do when they're thinking about this".

Sid Roth: You're not talking about storing up food or water. What are you talking about?

James Durham: I'm talking about that we need to become mentally tough so that whatever circumstance comes, we can stand, and as Paul said, "When you've done everything to stand". We're going to become that kind of resilient followers of Jesus when we're really prepared. The second part of that was that we need to have spiritual resilience because things are going to happen in the spirit so quickly that if we can't move with the Lord, we're going to be left behind. We're going to be lost, so we need to right now build that kind of resilience that we can stand no matter, keep the spirit strong, stand on faith and believe in the Lord and trust Him that He will be with us and take care of us.

Sid Roth: And what would you say to someone that says, "Well, all that is true, but we've got 50, 100 years. I'm not going to fool with that right now"?

James Durham: Mm-hmm. There are people who say that, and my concern is that they're not discerning well enough in the spirit, and they need the gift of spiritual discernment because everything that I see in Jesus' teachings about the last days is they could come right now. It could happen today. It could happen tomorrow, and it may be 100 years. If so, hallelujah, we'll live with it, and we'll expect another day, but it could be today, and if I really believe and understand that, and I do, then I need to be ready every day, every moment of every day, to meet Him when He does return, and so I believe that it's imperative that we must prepare, and a lot of people have gotten tired, tired of the messages about it. They've heard things over and over again, and it seemed like nothing manifested. I'm just believing, and Jesus told me, "Tell people don't give up. Don't get tired. Don't waiver but hold to what I have taught you and hold to the notion that it might happen any minute".

Sid Roth: Jesus says, "No man knows the day or hour".

James Durham: Right.

Sid Roth: Jesus told you, "You better tell people to be prepared". James says, "Special doors to heaven are being demonically blocked to prevent answers to your prayers". When we come back, James will share how you can have heaven open for your prayers, for all of them.

Sid Roth: James, recently you had an open-heaven vision.

James Durham: Yes, I have, and it's a vision similar to some I've had in the past, but this was very recent, and when I talk about open heaven, I'm not seeing something like rectangular shaped doors or windows, but I see, like, a round opening almost like it goes through the clouds, and then heaven is opened up, and in this vision, I was kind of hovering in space and looking at the- there was several of these, I call them portal instead of doors. There were several portals that were open into Heaven, and it was my desire to go through one of those portals and spend some time with Jesus. That's one my favorite past times is to spend time with Jesus, but as I looked up at these portals, dark clouds start covering over the openings of almost all of them, and the clouds would move, but then another dark cloud would come in and cover them up.

Sid Roth: In other words, if you knew where they were, you could get your prayers answered. You could accomplish everything the Bible says you're supposed, but you have to know where it is, but so what did you see?

James Durham: So I saw that covering, and I prayed to the Lord to break the power of the enemy to cover the open portals, and it was then that I came to understand that these were portals for prayer, and as soon as I asked the Lord, and I stood with Him to rebuke them, all the dark clouds went away. All the portals were suddenly open. Now these were not tiny little openings. They were huge, and immediately the prayers of the people were going through. Now the Lord told me that He was showing it to me that way, but actually the prayers were never stopped. It's a delusion that the enemy has to try to bring doubt into our lives, to make us afraid and think, "Well, Heaven is closed. My prayers are not being heard," and I hear that from people all the time. "The Lord is not hearing my prayers". Yes, He is. He's hearing your prayers, and even if you're seeing the dark cloud, that's something that's dark within us, and what we need to do is to rebuke that, to get rid of that so that we can see it and have the confidence to know our prayers are getting through to the Lord.

Sid Roth: You wrote an entire book on spiritual preparation, and if I was God, I would have picked a colonel to a manual on how to survive in the last days. Give me a couple of the steps. I happen to really like the step called let go of excessive baggage.

James Durham: Yes. Well, that one also began with a vision. That's a surprise, right, but anyway, I was walking on this really beautiful road of a mountain, and the road was going around the mountain, so you're constantly getting closer and closer to the top. It was smooth. It was easy, which was a little unusual, but that's what I was experiencing, and I suddenly came to a barrier, and the barrier blocked the whole road, and there was a sign there that said to, "To proceed, leave all unnecessary baggage behind," and I saw several bags there that other people had left behind, so I dropped everything I had. It opened and I moved up, and so I began to pray for understanding about those bags. What is it that we really need to drop? And the Lord showed me that there are some spiritual baggage that we need to get rid of. You know, it's hard enough to carry physical stuff, but if you're also weighed down by spiritual things, and the Lord was saying that one of the things we need to get rid of is all unresolved sin, and He's already created a process to do that. All we have to do is repent and ask Jesus to forgive us and to come into our hearts again. He also said, "Get rid of all the doctrines of man. Get back to My doctrine," but unload all of that baggage, stuff that you learned all through your life that's just really not Biblical. He said, "Get rid of false guilt". Now false guilt is when we feel guilty about something, we had absolutely no control over. That's false guilt. You're not guilty for what you couldn't do or couldn't have control over, but a lot of people carry that baggage, and we see it across the country now. We're being told to feel guilty about things that happened in the past that we had no control over. We weren't even alive when some of these things happened.

Sid Roth: But even beyond that, things that we have done that we know according to the Bible were forgiven, as long as the Devil knows that there's still shame and guilt, he will come and torment a person.

James Durham: And we need to get rid of that.

Sid Roth: How do you get rid of that?

James Durham: Well, I think it's a special way, but it's very hard for us to conceptualize. We know that the Lord says that when He forgives our sin, He chooses to forget it.

Sid Roth: Right.

James Durham: And He doesn't bring it up to His memory ever again. Now you and I and anyone watching this were created in God's image, so a part of who you are is someone who has the ability to forget. The problem we have is we've been taught to bring it up and bring it up and bring it up, and what we need to do is learn how to forget, how to do like our Father does, like Jesus does and forget these things, and we have that ability if we'll exercise it and use it, so a part of becoming prepared is to activate the gifts that God has put into us and to be able to forget the things that are holding us back.

Sid Roth: My goodness, once that happens, it'll be nothing Jesus inside of us? Wouldn't that be wonderful? James was taken to heaven and saw rooms in heaven that are available to us like the heavenly healing room and the glory room. The gifts he saw are available now. Next!

Sid Roth: Well, I tell you what, you are provoking me to jealousy, Colonel.

James Durham: Good.

Sid Roth: Tell me about some of these rooms you've seen. I know you've seen many of them but tell me about the healing room.

James Durham: Okay. In a vision, I was carried in the Spirit. Now people sometimes don't understand what you're talking about. I think it's something the Lord does for us so it'll make it real, but in my perception, my spirit, soul and body were taken to just to an open do0or into Heaven, and I was there with this huge crowd of people. I don't know how many there were because it was dark outside of where we were, but there hundreds of people standing there, and just in front, I saw this room, and the door was not like a rectangular -shaped door, but it was like an long arch, and it looked like maybe 20 or 30 people could go in at one time side-by-side, so it was a huge opening. I think when God opens something, He does a big job with it, and so I was in , I just felt like I was invited into the room, and I was hoping that some of the other people would go, but they wouldn't. They just stood there, and I couldn't understand that, but I pushed my way through the crowd, and I entered into that, and the first thing I did was to look back. Was anyone following me? They weren't. No, they were still standing there, seemingly not knowing what to do, so I just felt like the Lord was calling me into that room, and that room was filled with, like, an amber-colored glow, and it was warm. It was powerful, and I just knew that was the glory of the Lord that was shining in that room, and as I moved into the room. I heard the Holy Spirit say to me, "This is a healing room," and it was explained to me then it was for my healing, but it was also for healing other people, and it was to release anointings of the gifts of healings, and as I stood there, I began to receive words of knowledge about healing, and it was not just healing the physical body but also gifts for healing the spirit and for healing the soul, and I suddenly had this sense that somebody had really been hurt, been betrayed, that somebody had done something to them that had caused such a scar in their spirit that it had hampered their ability to move in the Spirit, and so I don't know who was hearing, but I released that word. I spoke that word in faith that someone would hear, "The Lord is healing your hurt right now," and I believe that even as we talk about it, that healing power still goes out, and I'm believing that as we speak of this, someone who is listening right now who has been through that kind of a hurt, been betrayed, been left behind, been abandoned, that God right now wants to heal that hurt and to set you free from the limitations of that hurt, free to move with Him into the power of these last days, and then I began to get words of knowledge for spiritual healing, and one that I received was about people who had pain in their necks and that it was so uncomfortable. They suffered pain, and it seemed like no medicine that's made by man would heal that pain, and the Lord is saying, "I am healing that pain right now," and I believe that someone who is listening to this is going to get healed of neck pain because I'm still feeling that anointing. I feel it flowing right now, and then I began to sense that somebody who had great pain in their ankles, had difficulty moving, was just about to be released from not only the limit to moving, but also the pain, and so just release a word of knowledge that God will take away your pain, take your limitations, that you will no longer be held back from your purpose in the Kingdom because of those ankles. Then I heard and I hear again now that someone with a problem in their right knee, have a lot of pain and difficulty in the right knee, the Lord is healing that right now, and suddenly I saw this huge pitcher of oil, and this was an oil of healing, and like in the last chapter of the book of James, it says that they'll pray for you and anoint you with oil, and I just watched as the Lord poured this oil that I could see in distant places, and I believe that this was not just for me, but it's for you. It's for anybody who is willing to be led by the Lord, to be carried into the healing room, receive that anointing, receive that healing, and then the oil not only for healing but an oil of anointing for you to reach out to and minister this same thing to other people, and as I was really enjoying this and wanted to stay a lot longer, my attention was directed to a door on the other side of the room, and it was another one of those arched doors, and in that room, there was a blue glory light, and I moved into that other room as I felt the Lord was leading me, and there were a couple of things that were being released in that room. One was revelation knowledge about things to come, and a second one was that the Lord was releasing a kind of a preparation, that he's pouring over us an oil that will help us to prepare ourselves for what's coming in the future for the perilous times and an oil of protection so that we don't have to worry about what's coming from the world because we're protected by the Lord.

Sid Roth: I believe a lot of what you wrote in your book came from the revelation in the glory room.

James Durham: Mm-hmm.

Sid Roth: I also believe that if you will look in the camera and pray right now, you can release the glory on people.

James Durham: Yeah, amen. Whoa. Whoo! Sorry, I just got hit by it.

Sid Roth: Don't apologize. Tell it to hit me.

James Durham: Lord, I just pray that You'll release this power of your presence, this heavy, weighty presence and that it will go to whoever is listening, wherever you are. The Spirit is not limited by time or space and that the Lord will release to you this same anointing of the glory and the same power of His presence and that you will experience the things that I've been experiencing and even more as the Lord uses you to be a key part of his army in the last days, that the Lord will just fill you full of that glory, and so I release it now to you. "Freely you've received," Jesus said, "Freely give". I freely received. Now I freely give it to you in the name of Yeshua Hamashiach. Amen and amen.

Sid Roth: And there are so many of you that have never had experiential knowledge with God through the Messiah of Israel, Yeshua, Jesus. Tell him you're sorry for your sins and believe that His blood washes away your sins and tell Him to come and be your Savior and your Lord; that simple.
