Sid Roth - The Bride MUST Make Ready
My guest is a Celtic warrior with a pioneering spirit that will help you unlock the muzzled lion's roar living inside of you.
Sid Roth: Emma Stark was born in Ireland. And she became a believer in the Messiah at age 6; in fact, she came from a long line of pastors that had no grid whatsoever of anything supernatural. But as a child, the supernatural started operating in her life. Emma, how did you handle this supernatural that was going on when you never saw anything like that in your parents, your grandparents, in church, et cetera?
Emma Stark: I mean, we loved Jesus as a family. But you're right, there was no grid for the supernatural. But when I was a child, I would see in the Spirit, but we wouldn't know that that's what it was called. We wouldn't call it a prophetic gift, we didn't know that existed. And I would see faces the whole time, in the supernatural, in the realm of the Spirit. But they were very black and white. And it wasn't until I was baptized in the Spirit that suddenly, open visions, color, immediate understanding of who is God, and those are angels, and that's a demon, and that's the face of Christ with the eyes of fire.
Sid Roth: At 18...
Emma Stark: Yes.
Sid Roth: ...that's when everything exploded in your life.
Emma Stark: Absolutely.
Sid Roth: What happened?
Emma Stark: Absolutely. It was the time where John Wimber was actually doing a tour in the United Kingdom, and I saw him prophesy, and I was, like, "I can do that! What's that called? He knows things! I know things". And of course, I mean, I'd lived nearly 20 years without any terminology. But here's the deal, Sid. We can talk about my story, but I really believe that it's going to happen for other people who are watching, that actually, you are not just watching me talk about my story. Oh my family, wherever you are in the world, I believe that the veil between the natural and the spiritual is going to drop for you as it did for me all those years ago, when I was 18, and that actually, God is moving us as a body of believers to be a Revelation 11, prophetic revelatory church. Sid, this has gripped my insides. You and I get to live in the days where the entire people of God are going to become a prophetic people. And you can feel the eagerness of Heaven to make this your and my norm, and you who are watching's norm. And you and I are living in the days where the prophetic revelatory church is being birthed. And every one of us is going to have visions and dreams and encounters, and see Jesus. We have diluted Yeshua, we have diluted Jesus Christ to be, oh, just my wee, tiny, little, personal Savior, there, there, pat me on the back, make me feel good. But in this monstrous shaking, what we're not able to see in people's hearts is, those who say, "I don't just need a wee Savior occasionally. I need a King. I need somebody who's on a throne. I need a Kingdom that I can be a member of, because nothing on this earth works the way it should. It's only Your Kingdom, Your ways, Your government that is secure. So we understand that the shaking my family, is not just an unkindness, it's a necessity to make us all go, "Jesus, You are King! And I need Your Kingdom and Your government, because I see what is in the earth doesn't actually work".
Sid Roth: So many people, and I'm amazed, even people that are Christians, are fearful.
Emma Stark: Yes.
Sid Roth: Are fearful.
Emma Stark: Yes.
Sid Roth: They're fearful of COVID, they're fearful of finances, they're fearful of politics, they're fearful of race relationships.
Emma Stark: Yeah.
Sid Roth: But you actually pray for people that are fearful. You've had thousand set free from fear.
Emma Stark: Yes.
Sid Roth: Explain.
Emma Stark: Oh, I love how the Name of Jesus terrifies demons. I just love it! And actually, I think the fear is fear of failure, fear of the future, fear of dying young, fear of sickness, there's an awful lot of that around. Fear of man is massive, Sid. I mean, most of us at some point touch that. But the Name of Jesus is so powerful, you do not need to live like that. And I actually believe that the shaking, Jesus is saying to His remnant, to you and I, who are the Bride of Christ, "Guys," He's saying to us, "Church, Bride," He's saying to us, "I need you faith-filled, because you and I are about to have to take some decisions that are the riskiest we've ever taken". I actually believe that God is saying to His people, "Come on now, I love you, but you need to leap. And you need to leap not presumptuously, but you need to leap". And actually, to leap, you need faith, not fear. And I feel like the Lord has got me on this. And my friends and my family watching this, I love you, and I want to say to you, you do not need to live with that emotional turbulence. You do not need to live blown by every wind of change. And God wants to give you a gift of faith. Do you remember in Corinthians, it's actually a gift. There is a gift of faith that God wants to put in you that will so richly dwell in you that your fear will dissipate and disappear, because God now says, "Come have My faith gift that you may leap and take the risky decisions, and that fear may be gone". Look, if we don't deal with this fear, Sid, we're not going to be able to see the miracles, signs, and wonders.
Sid Roth: Do you pray for people that say, "I hear what she's saying, I wish I was like her, but I'm not"!
Emma Stark: Uh-huh. Yes.
Sid Roth: Pray for those people.
Emma Stark: Okay, when you're watching, you can raise your hands, if it helps. I'm going to raise my hands to you, my family. In the Name of Jesus, I bind that spirit of fear, and I burn it with the fire of God, that that which is in you that owns you to do you harm may be incinerated by the Glory, and in Jesus' Name, I pull it off you, and I loose to you rich deposits of faith, that gift of faith that we read about as a Holy Spirit gift, I loose it to you. Oh, come on, it's yours. I'm releasing it as a seed form. It's going to grow. It's going to be established. There's going to be a tree of faith that holds you on the inside. And I speak over you that you may no longer be mentally and emotionally tossed around by every passing wind or fear, in Jesus' Name.
Sid Roth: I'm going to tell you something, Emma, that was not a cosmetic prayer.
Emma Stark: Oh, no.
Sid Roth: That is, lives are being transformed. Most people say, "Shh, don't talk about the devil, he's listening"! What do you say?
Emma Stark: Oh, I'm super excited for the devil to hear. I'm super excited for demons to hear. I'm, like, bring it on, because they're going to hear their demise around me. They're going to hear the Name of Jesus. They're going to hear me decree a thing that it becomes established. They're going to hear about what God is going to do in my life. So when I'm walking the dog, when I'm chatting to people, when I'm out in the park, I like the enemy to hear because I like him to be utterly terrified.
Sid Roth: We were talking about being weaponized by heaven. You use that phrase a lot.
Emma Stark: I do.
Sid Roth: What do you mean by that?
Emma Stark: I see in the Spirit realm as many of you are just about to do, so don't worry if you don't yet, you will.
Sid Roth: But you're saying everyone will be able to see in the Spirit?
Emma Stark: Oh, totally, because it's not just an Old Testament concept where it was relegated to the seers. When we read Scripture and it says, this is New Testament, "Fix your eyes on the unseen," that's one of the New Testament commands. So when Jesus says, "Fix your eyes," it's because He has that capability for everybody. So when we talk about "weaponized by heaven," as we were saying, I actually think that we give off in this Spirit realm, and I can see it, and you guys will see it, we give off the anointings of God. We exude that in the Spirit realm. It's easy to see in the Spirit realm the anointings, the gifts, the callings. They shine in different colors, they actually are intimidating. So let me give you an example. I was in a shoe shop, I love shoe shopping, and I'm standing there, looking at all the blingy, glitzy shoes. And a woman walks in, she's completely deranged. Sid, she's totally out of her mind, so much so that there was a mirrored wall at the end of the shop. And this woman is walking into the wall. She's walking into the mirror glaze, saying, "Why can't I get through? Why can't I get through"? So the staff actually were quite scared, because they're, like, "What do we do" She's really unhinged. And I stand up, and I know that I'm weaponized by heaven. And just knowing that changes the atmosphere, she spots me, she pivots on the spot, comes towards me. And as soon as she stands in the atmosphere of heaven that I carry, and this is not just for me to do, this is for all of you to do, she came immediately into her right mind. And that woman, suddenly from being deranged and walking into a wall, is saying, "I'm so glad you're here. I feel safe. I feel like I can think clearly". And it reminds me of that Scripture when King Saul comes into Samuel's company, and he came into his right mind, that's being weaponized by heaven. It's not just to build your own ego. It's that you actually become a weaponized liberation force for anybody who needs saved in your circle.
Sid Roth: Okay. Your new book on "Lion Bites".
Emma Stark: Yes.
Sid Roth: What are "Lion Bites"?
Emma Stark: Well, "Lion Bites," are daily words with an activation attached to them that you read and digest, a page a day, that will absolutely write God's truth. In fact, Sid, they're going to tattoo God's truth on the inside of you. And "Lion Bites," day to day will hold your hand and take you to a place where you see in the Spirit, you're fear-free in the Spirit, and you are bolder in the Name of Jesus than you've ever been.
Sid Roth: Okay. Let's give an example.
Emma Stark: Yes.
Sid Roth: There's just one page for one day of the year. What if you read the one said, "Release the roar within you". What is that?
Emma Stark: Okay, I actually saw people with taped mouths. I actually think Satan has done an amazingly successful job at muting the church, that we actually have lost our voice. And I really, this is one day, you're right, it's only one day, where actually you'll work with us, that tape will come off your mouth, and that sign of the roar of freedom, and actually the ability to speak your future and walk into it will come. And that's just in one day.
Sid Roth: Are you talking about literally someone roaring from time to time?
Emma Stark: Yes.
Sid Roth: That's what I thought you...
Emma Stark: Oh, I am. Oh, can I tell you, so exciting! Sometimes we do run out of English. Now the Word of God talks like that, that we've grown sometimes in prayer.
Sid Roth: Yes.
Emma Stark: So we understand that. But in the days of Joshua, they roared, and a wall came down. I have had somebody with a heroin addiction walk into our offices, we laid hands on them, and we thought, oh, we'll probably pray a nice prayer, we actually roared, and the spirit of addiction popped off them, and they were free from an anointed roar. Not even savvy words in English, but the anointing of a lion roar totally terrified the demons right out of them.
Sid Roth: "It's not by man's might".
Emma Stark: No.
Sid Roth: "It is not by man's power. But it is by My Spirit," sayeth the Lord. And when you follow God, you get God's results. When you follow religion, you get man's results. Choose this day whom you want to follow. Do you feel there's an invisible ceiling over your walk with the Lord? Emma says we can blast ourselves into a higher level of Glory with a spiritual hammer. Be right back.
Sid Roth: You know, Emma Stark, you have so many amazing concepts you teach in your book, and books, as a matter of fact, we're making two available right now. But let me quote you. "We can choose to hear, see and activate encounters with God in our life. These are the days of the experiential gospel".
Emma Stark: Yes, yes, and yes.
Sid Roth: Comment on that.
Emma Stark: Yes, absolutely. Do you know what? We are too robotic. And when you and I walk down that aisle with the rest of us who love Jesus, and when we marry Him at the end of time, Jesus does not want us walking down the aisle, you know, like an automated robot. He wants us knowing Him and experiencing Him. He wants us to have already encountered Him. When I married my husband, David, it wasn't just on our wedding day that I experienced him. I had a dating, you know, and a hand-holding and a lingering love before the wedding. And I feel like the Lord is saying, now, "Come on, you're getting closer to the day where you're going to marry Me, and I want you to experience Me now". And that's why I think we're quite happy to say that there's a real shift, because the Bride is being made ready. And that's just not in our holiness or our purity, it is also in God saying, "Experience Me now. I'm so hungry for you. I'm so jealous to know you and you to know Me. I want all hindrances to go". So I think we get very weird, Sid, about no, no, no, no, we don't want to become too emotional... Jesus is highly emotional about you and I.
Sid Roth: Give us some tips on hearing and seeing and encountering God.
Emma Stark: I actually think, do you know what, I can sit here with you and be aware of this table, this chair, you know, the glass.
Sid Roth: Right.
Emma Stark: But at the same time, here's the deal, Sid. I'm also in the Glory, and the Kingdom of God is not some ethereal thing, it's not like, oh my goodness, where is it, right there. It's right here. And so as much as I am here, I am also bi-located. I am also seated in heavenly places. That's what Ephesians tells us. That's not sometimes true. That's always true. That's the Word of God. So right now...
Sid Roth: You're in two places at one time?
Emma Stark: Oh, in two places at one time, always. And I don't need to move to do that. I don't need to beg, you know, I don't need to fast, I mean, do that as well, but you know what I'm saying, it's my continuing reality. It's your continual reality. So really, there's a sense of God saying, "Just tune in, My family. Just tune in". Actually, where's the angels, what anointing are you wearing? Now I'm starting to see your angel, Sid, behind you. I'm starting to see the colors that you are in the Spirit. I'm starting to see the hindrances. I'm starting to be aware of where Jesus is in the room. And I'm doing it right now live; as much as I'm here, I'm also in the spirit realm. It is that simple.
Sid Roth: But the important point that you're making is, it's not that you have an extraordinary gift.
Emma Stark: Totally.
Sid Roth: It's not that you have an extraordinary calling. You are normal, and you want the whole world to be normal.
Emma Stark: Yes! Oh, I am so fed up, Sid... can we just be honest and authentic?
Sid Roth: Please.
Emma Stark: I am so fed up of that divide, you know, oh, the prophets, or oh, the church leaders, and oh, the rest, that's just nonsense. We are the family of God together. And Jesus has died for all of us. He's saying, "Come on, you're all going to marry Me. You're all going to walk up that aisle together. I want you all encountering". And this ugly lie that somehow I'm disqualified, or I'm not good enough, or I'm not Bible college-trained enough, we have got to break that and stop that low-grade thinking that we may be those who richly encounter in the spirit realm right now. Do you know what? I think church has got boring. I hope that's not rude. Can I say...
Sid Roth: No, it's not, but you're just saying how people feel.
Emma Stark: Can I...
Sid Roth: But let me go one step further.
Emma Stark: Yeah.
Sid Roth: They're either boring, or they're entertainment.
Emma Stark: Yes!
Sid Roth: And they're Hollywood.
Emma Stark: Yes!
Sid Roth: And big productions, big worship.
Emma Stark: Yes.
Sid Roth: But God doesn't need any of that! He just needs your heart.
Emma Stark: Yes. Yes. And I think they hurt us accidentally because we want authenticity, but we come in either to performance or to boredom, either-or. And I actually really feel like God is not just shaking the world, but He's shaking the church and He's saying, "I am going to get that tedious boredom out of you. I am going to put you in a place where you encounter Me". I didn't come to faith for logic, and neither did you. We didn't agree to Jesus, out of some logic rationality. We agreed to Jesus for the depth of relational encounter.
Sid Roth: Emma, there are people watching us right now that have never received the Lord. There are people that are watching us right now that have received the Lord, but they've never received the experiential aspect of the Lord.
Emma Stark: Ah, yes.
Sid Roth: And there are people right now that have a mental ascent to salvation, but never had that experience. Pray for them right now.
Emma Stark: I hear you. Oh, this is my joy. Okay. In the Name of Jesus... I'm not playing games. This is right for you, and you're going to receive something right now. In the Name of Jesus, where there has been an emotional disconnect, where you have known something in your head but you have never known it in your heart, I break the blockages in Jesus' Name, where there is an emotional shut-downness and a numbness. Right now the Fire of God is landing on you, and that is being dealt with in Jesus' Name. And in the Name of Jesus, I loose the ability to feel, see, taste, hear, experience and encounter your God in Jesus' Name. And I call you up to experience Him right now. Come on. Come with me. Come with me into the higher places. Right now you are coming from Glory to Glory, and these prayers are going into wherever you are, watching this. And they are grabbing you, that you may know your God in your heart, in your mind, in your flesh, in your emotions. I liberate you into that place, in Jesus' Name.
Sid Roth: Say this out loud with me, and mean it to the best of your ability. Dear Jesus, I've made many mistakes. I'm so sorry. Today I publicly say You are my Messiah and Lord. I ask You to live inside of me. Let me experience Your presence, Your goodness, Your Glory, Your shalom. The word "shalom" means completeness, complete in your spirit, in your soul and in your body. Amen.
