Sid Roth - Prepare for the Return of Jesus
Jesus taught my guest how to pray, and now she expects God to answer every prayer. She says, "This is your finest hour, and you called to be a glory carrier".
Sid Roth: Well, I just found out my guest, Tracy Eckert, has a special anointing to heal people with coronavirus, and later I will have her pray that. And whatever else God shows her. She will also pray for you to hear God clearly. I know you want that. In 1995, Tracy escaped her abusive husband in Mexico, fled to the US with her two daughters. She remarried, had a blended family of six teenagers. Listen to this, as a non-Christian, having never read the Bible, she began hearing the audible voice of God. What did God say?
Tracy Eckert: Well, I was getting ready for work one day. And again, like you said, I had never read the Bible. In fact, I did not even know where the Bible was located in my house. I had one that someone gave me 10 years prior to that, but I did not even know where it was. And so I was not pursuing God. I was not pursuing the Lord. And one day I am getting ready for work, and I hear this breaking in of this audible voice and He said, "Rebuild my temple". And to me, I was, like, I was thinking to myself, "What? I'm not Jewish". But I could not believe what I was hearing because I knew it was God. I knew that it was my Father. And so it was almost like something like an arrow broke into the atmosphere and opened everything up, and there I was. I just sat there for 2 hours. I was supposed to be on a conference call, and I could not believe what I heard. And so then after that, for 7 days after that, I heard the same thing. Every morning when I woke up, "Rebuild my temple. Rebuild my temple. Rebuild my temple". And again, not ever having read the Bible, not knowing the Lord, not pursuing the Lord, I had no idea what he meant by that.
Sid Roth: But you knew it was Him. So you actually, not just that, I mean, you began seeing in the invisible world.
Tracy Eckert: Yeah. It was really crazy because, you know, I was living this worldly life. And when I say worldly life, I mean, you know, my husband and I, John, I mean, we both had these huge careers. We had these six kids. You know, living this incredibly abundant life, and this right here was not anything that I expected. And so I did not have a grid for it. So on the seventh day, I started going into this opened-eyed trancelike vision. And again, I did not know anybody that ever heard from God. I would say I was not even a Christian. I would go to church on Christmas, and then rarely, I would take my children to church. Really, if you have six teenagers, you really need some help. And so I was looking for some behavioral management, really. So the Holy Spirit broke in on me on the seventh day. I was laying in my bed, and I was getting ready to go to sleep. Something came upon me, and today I know it was the Holy Spirit. And I could not move. It was truly, physically frozen. And all of a sudden, this scene appeared, like, everything in front of my disappeared in my bedroom, and this scene appeared, and I could see that I was in New York. And this was back in 1999. So I am in this scene where I am in New York, and I can see angels and demons over the city, and they are warring over the city. I see these planes. I see explosions. This man walks up to me, and he is closer to me than you are. He is about right here. And I can see the skin on his face is melting off of his face, and I can see inside the cavities of his eyes. And he was so sad, and he knew he was dying. And his skin and his whole body was covered with, I did not even know how to define it, but it looked like an ash or a soot or even maybe chemical warfare. And he looked to his left, and I looked to see what he was looking at. And, Sid, I saw this huge pile of dead bodies that had the same kind of ash all over them. And then I was taken out of it. And then I was able to move. And I literally thought, "What I just I saw is a real event, and it's going to happen. We're going to be attacked in New York". And I wrote down in my journal, "There's something about 9/11. There's something about nine, one, one". And again, not knowing, never having experienced anything like this, but I knew this was real.
Sid Roth: You had a prophecy in a dream.
Tracy Eckert: Yeah. I mean, it was,
Sid Roth: I mean, you are hearing God's voice. You had a prophecy in a dream.
Tracy Eckert: Yeah.
Sid Roth: How did you get saved?
Tracy Eckert: Well, it was really crazy because I told my husband about this, and he said, "Wow. Okay. Well, I know somebody that might know something about this". And so he knew somebody that had had these kinds of encounters, and she prayed in tongues, and so he invited her over to the house. And she told, you know, what I was experiencing was supernatural, and it was, you know, a vision, that I had a vision. And so she said, "Have you ever said the Sinner's Prayer"? And so she led me through it. I got saved. I invited Jesus to come into my life and be Lord of my life. And then she asked me if I wanted to be baptized in the Holy Spirit. And I did not know what that was, but I said, "I want everything that God has for me". And so she prayed, and about a month later I was at a Chuck Pierce conference, and I got my prayer language in worship. He said, "Everybody start praying with your prayer language". And I really did not have one, but I had gotten baptized in fire. So I started just saying, "ba, ba, ba, ba, ba". And the Lord took my one syllable, and air went flying out of my mouth and this language, this new language come out. And, I mean, ever since then, you know, I have been a woman with hair on fire, pretty much. In fact, my kids say I went from zero to shofar overnight.
Sid Roth: But with this thing about "Build the temple". You had more dream in revelation about that.
Tracy Eckert: Yeah.
Sid Roth: Tell me about it.
Tracy Eckert: Well, he said rebuild the temple and, again, not understanding what that meant. And then he began to over several months, he began to build something line upon line, precept upon precept. And so I went into another trance and he, I ask him why we are going to be attacked in New York, and he said, on 9/11, he said, "It's about Babylon". And then after that, which I was, like, I did not even know what Babylon was. Then he gave me a prophetic dream, and in that prophetic dream, I was pregnant. And I asked the Lord, or my husband was with me, and we were at the doctor in the dream, and John asked the Lord, "Who's the father"? which is interesting, you know? And I heard audibly in the dream, "The father is Zerubbabel. The father is Zerubbabel. The father is Zerubbabel".
Sid Roth: Did you know who Zerubbabel was?
Tracy Eckert: No. And I woke up the next morning and I thought, "Oh. I hope that is not a demon. I hope I'm not having a baby demon or something". And, you know, God is so good. That next day I was doing a prayer, a 30-day prayer thing from Chuck Pierce, and that day I was praying out of where the Lord said, "To Zerubbabel rebuild my temple". And I am, like, my mind is blown. I said, "That's the baby that I'm having". And he said to rebuild the temple. So Zerubbabel rebuilt the temple. And they came out of Babylon. They were coming out of Babylonian captivity, and so all of this started to make a story. But again, I was not quite sure what the significance was, what it was at that time.
Sid Roth: So what did this all mean? I mean, build the temple, having a baby like Zerubbabel. What does it all mean?
Tracy Eckert: Well, basically what the Lord showed me, I spent several years, 9, 10 years, in Ezra and the Book of Haggai and in Zechariah, and I was just engrossed in this story of this second temple. You know, Zerubbabel was such a fascinating character, but yet not very many Christians even know who he is. I mean, we know about Moses, who led the first Exodus, and we know about David and Solomon, who built the first temple, but nobody knows who Zerubbabel is, and he actually led the second Exodus and built the second temple. So he is a fascinating character. And he is in the line of Judah. He is in the line of Kings. And then he partners with this man named Joshua, who is a priest. And so you have got this situation where you have got this new temple that is being rebuilt. And so what the Lord showed me, that this temple was a symbol of the rebuilt tabernacle of David or, which is 9:11, Amos 9:11, right? So the shift came on 9/11 in the world, and so on that day, something shifted, right? So also, it is Hebrews 9:11. We are the temple of the Lord that is not made with human hands, and so we are the fleshly temples. We are the rebuilt tabernacle of David. So when Jesus came, what he did is, he laid the foundation of the temple, and right now what is happening for the rebuilding of the temple is, there is a shift going on in the Body of Christ right now, where God is saying, "I'm bringing my capstone and my finishing work to the foundation of the temple". And so in Zechariah 4, you can see where the rebuilt temple is. And he said this, "Now this rebuilt temple or the capstone is going to come, not my might, nor by power. It's not going to come from the work of our hands, but it is going to come from the power of the Holy Spirit". And then he goes on to say, "And I am going to give you a double portion of grace for this work". And then he goes on to say that "The hand of Zerubbabel laid the foundation of the temple," which happened when Jesus came. He laid the foundation, but his hand and the same dispensation will also finish it. So as it was in the former reign, so it will be in the latter reign, even much more so because we will be partnering with Heaven, with a double grace anointing, on this last capstone generation. And so we know when there is a rebuilt temple, there has got to be the priesthood that fills that temple.
Sid Roth: Well, God went a step further. He said, "We have to live as priests and Kings".
Tracy Eckert: Yes.
Sid Roth: What does that mean?
Tracy Eckert: Well, so it is a new kind of priesthood. You know, you see the Old Testament model of the priesthood.
Sid Roth: Right.
Tracy Eckert: But we are under the New Covenant, and so we are under the new priesthood, which is the priesthood of Melchizedek. It is the priesthood that Jesus walked in. And if you look in the Book of Hebrews, which is my favorite book in the Bible because it really equips us how to live as these priests. So if you look at that, you will see that the Melchizedek priesthood was the priesthood of the priest and the King. So this is the priesthood that actually Zerubbabel's temple had because you had the two branches, right, that were beside the olive tree. Well, these two branches are governmental. These are the two sons of oil or the anointed ones that carry this authority. And just like it is like the government of America, we have three branches of government. Well, in the government of God, there are two branches of government. And it is the government of the priest, which signifies Joshua, who rebuilt this temple, and the King, which is Zerubbabel, which rebuilt this temple. And the two of them together pour the spontaneous oil into the seven churches so that we can walk in power and authority and bring Heaven to the Earth.
Sid Roth: When we return, Tracy will pray for you to hear God's voice clearly.
Sid Roth: Well, I am here again with Tracy Eckert, and, Tracy, everyone wants to hear God clearly. How do we hear God clearly like you do? Give us some nuggets.
Tracy Eckert: Well, Sid, you know, I have heard that from a lot of people. I have heard, "I don't think I can hear God's voice," especially from people in the marketplace who are so busy. But the truth is, everybody can hear God's voice, and God wants to speak to all of us. His desire is to be near to us. And so really, the first thing that I tell people to do is, number one, you have got to believe that God is speaking to you. You have got to believe that God wants to speak to you, and you have got to believe that you can hear God, just like everybody.
Sid Roth: And anyone that disbelieves that, is believing a lie.
Tracy Eckert: Right.
Sid Roth: So we are exposing the lie right now because Jesus himself said, "My sheep hear my voice," period.
Tracy Eckert: Exactly. And so you have really got to repent. I mean, if you have been believing that you have got to repent, which means you have got to change your mind about the things that you thought because it is wrong, and you have got to line up with the Lord. And then after that, you know, you have really got to be baptized in the Holy Spirit. You know, the baptism of the Holy Spirit enables us to prophecize, and we see that in Acts 19. And I will not go into that, but it is very clearly there that that is there is two baptisms, the baptism of John and the baptism of fire. You have got to have the baptism of fire to hear, and so you can do that. You know, have somebody lay hands on you and pray in the Name of Jesus that you be baptized in the Holy Spirit. And so then, next, and here is the thing, you have got to clear your schedule. You have got to clear your schedule and you have to have an appointment with God. And you have got to ask Him, "First of all, how do you want to meet with me"? Because God gets to say because he knows what your life looks like. And so we have got to say, "Okay. God, what does this look like for me"? And so he is going to tell you when to meet with him, and then you have got to go and meet with him because you have got an appointment. And guess what? God is already there. He is waiting for you to show up because he knows that you are going to be there, so he is waiting for you to come. It would be just like if I was working out, and I had a personal trainer. You have got a personal trainer in the Lord, and he wants to exercise your ears and your eyes in that place. And so next, you have got to clear your soul. And this is something that I did not realize when I first started because,
Sid Roth: What do you mean by clear your soul?
Tracy Eckert: Well, I have a very loud soul life, which means my mind goes a mile a minute. I am a very busy person. I have seven children. I have 13 grandchildren. My husband has three businesses, and I have a church, so very busy person. So when I come before the Lord, I am coming with a very active life and today even more so. I think people's attention span these days are, what, a minute? So when you sit down to be quiet, it is not something that we are accustomed to and we have to train ourselves to do it. And so I keep a journal next to me, and as I sit before the Lord, all of a sudden, my mind will get really busy with everything I have not done or everything I need to do. So I will just list all of my to-dos and my laundry list of people I need to e-mail or whatever and I do a brain flush. You know, David commanded his soul to worship the Lord. And so what I am doing is, I am commanding my soul to come into alignment with my spirit, and so my soul will come down and get quiet, and my spirit man rises up to connect with the Holy Spirit. And so in that time, I just, then after I have done that, it usually takes me about 15 minutes. Some people it would take longer if they have not been if they are not used to doing this. God started showing up, and he would, he came to me. You know when you go to a conference or you are in a worship experience with a corporate body? You are feeling the presence of God so thick and strongly. He started coming like that during my prayer time sit. And I would be just weeping before the Lord, and He was just washing over my soul and taking things out of me, like pride and idolatry and jealousy and envy, and all of the stuff that was so dirty, and He was washing me with His word. You know, I am reading the Bible. He is washing me with His Rhema word. And so during those times, I get so close to Him and I would hear His voice. It was training my ears to hear that still, small voice, not that booming external voice, but the witness of the Holy Spirit. And so I became so sensitive to the witness of the Holy Spirit now that wherever I go out in the world, I am yielded to that and I can hear Him or an impression that He's giving me, and I will follow it right away. So again, it is that worship of obedience and sacrifice.
Sid Roth: Can you pray right now, look into the camera, and pray that we hear God's voice, we become true worshipers of God and pray that people with coronavirus will get healed?
Tracy Eckert: Okay. Yes. So for everyone that is listening out there, I just thank you, Father, for everyone. Father, I thank you for all of the viewers today. Father, I pray that you will send your Holy Spirit in now. And I ask, God, that you would anoint their ears and their eyes, God, that they can see, and they can hear what the Spirit is saying. Father, I ask now that you would anoint them for dreams and visions, that they would have dreams in the night and visions during the day. God, I pray that you would take them into these encounters, that you would lead them in this way. God, would you teach them to how to pray? Would you teach them how to understand what it is that you are showing them? And, God, I pray for them, that they would operate in the authority, the governmental authority of God, both as priests and King, and they would partner with you in the days ahead. God, I thank you that this is their finest hour. Lord, and that you are taking them into your beauty realm, God, that you are giving them power and authority over sickness and disease. And, Father, I thank you that there is no fear that can come near them as they operate in this authority and in this priesthood. So, Lord, I ask now for anybody out there that hears my voice, if you have coronavirus, if you are sick in your body, right now, in the Name of Jesus, I bind up that fear that has attached itself to this virus and I command you to leave them now, in the Name of Jesus. And, Holy Spirit, I just ask that you would release, right now, release your peace into their lungs and into their cellular structure. And I ask right now that strength would come back to their cells, strength, and vitality. I ask that the wind of God and the breath of God would hit your lungs right now, in Jesus Name, and that your lungs would be filled with the healing power and anointing of the Holy Spirit, and that you can breathe again. And I command all pain to leave your body, fever to leave your body now. And I just say, resurrection life, I declare resurrection life over you, and I declare that you are rising up out of this, in Jesus' mighty Name. Amen.
Sid Roth: So be it.
Tracy Eckert: Amen.
