Sid Roth - What God Told This Prisoner Will Wreck You

Forty-five arrests, the biggest drug operation in U.S. history, in prison, ravaged by addiction but on a cold jail cell floor, my guest found the unfair advantage.

Sid Roth: My guest, Robby Eddy, was arrested 45 times. Then indicted for partnering in a $30 million illegal pain pill operation, out of control, enslaved to drugs, should have died of five overdoses, facing 25 years in federal prison for racketeering, mail and wire fraud. Robby, how does a nice Catholic man coming from a good family get into such a mess?

Robby Eddy: Well, man, I started, you know, my dad was a military guy, a Golden Glove boxer. I was raised by a really good mom and dad. All that was fine. I like to always share that because it doesn't matter what kind of upbringing. You can have a bad upbringing or a good upbringing. Once the enemy gets ahold of you, whatever stronghold that you have in your life, it's over with. So I was counting on this football scholarship. I had a 75 percent scholarship. My parents couldn't afford the other 25 percent. I played football my whole life. It's all I knew. I didn't know anything else. I wasn't good in school, so when I didn't go play college football, I didn't do very good in school, and I didn't know what I was going to be, so I literally started picking up alcohol and drugs at that time, and from that point on, man, it just was fast. It was really fast. This obsession took over me quick. And I started breaking the law. I just turned into a completely person. It was like Dr. Jekyll, Mr. Hyde.

Sid Roth: Now, just before you got that big federal indictment, you're in jail on previous crimes, and how do you get high in jail? You can't get drugs in jail.

Robby Eddy: Oh, man, there's, anybody who's been to prison or been to jail before, you'd be surprised. There's more drugs and alcohol in prisons and jails than there is on the streets. It's pretty nuts.

Sid Roth: Okay. It's your birthday.

Robby Eddy: Yeah.

Sid Roth: You're in jail.

Robby Eddy: Yeah.

Sid Roth: And, boy, did you get an amazing birthday gift. Tell me about that gift.

Robby Eddy: So when I hit, it was March 25th, 2011, which is coming up 11 years, when I was standing there in the jail cell and it hit me, I was mentally, physically, spiritually bankrupt. I can't take it here. I just got off the phone with my father. I know! All right? Dad, listen. Listen.

Robby Eddy: My father said, "Son, I can't stop you from killing yourself, but I can stop you from killing your mother. We're done". I'm sorry! I was just in so much pain, so much anguish after my father telling me that, I was completely just broken, and when you're broken and you're beaten down bad enough and you cry out to God, I had anguish, true anguish, I can't take it here. Which anguish is sorrow and deep pain, and out of that burst of passion, I had this anguish because I was just in so much pain, and I cried out to God. It was for real. All the other times, it was like a foxhole prayer. I got to do something. This was real. It was from my heart and soul, and I cried to God, and the obsession to drink or drug was lifted. I felt the presence of God. I felt Him saying to me, "Have you had enough"? It was just like that. And I dropped to my knees. Yes, God! Yes!

Sid Roth: What happened to your addiction?

Robby Eddy: It was lifted from me immediately. It was snatched right out of me.

Sid Roth: Did you ask Him to take it away?

Robby Eddy: I did. I said, "Father God, please take this from me". If there's a God, I didn't even know, I didn't even know if there was a real God. I didn't believe in Jesus. I said, "If You're real and You're out there, please take this from me. Please help me".

Sid Roth: But the thing I don't understand is He set you simply, set free from impossible years of ravaging your body and addiction. Instantly He set you free, and you still don't believe in Jesus.

Robby Eddy: Yeah, that's how you see, the thing is about God, what's so powerful, and that at that time is when the unfair advantage anointing hit me. That's when it hit me. Yes, God. And even God, God doesn't love us for who we are. He loves us for who we're going to be, so He knew. He knew exactly. He knows when we're in the womb. He already knows. It was planned. He knew exactly what was going to happen to me, and that's why when I got out of jail and I didn't know Jesus yet, but I hit my knees and the anointing fell on me and God was there for me already, when I got out, after I got indicted. I got indicted 20 days later by the FBI, but I still didn't find Jesus until after I got out of federal prison. So I went to federal prison, and when I was in federal prison, God continued to follow me all throughout there. I was supernaturally taken out of prison years early. I was sentenced to 25 years. I get snatched out of prison. It's impossible for that to happen. I didn't pray for it. I didn't go to the law library. The power of God, the glory of God snatched me out of prison. That's the only way, it was supernatural! Now, when I got out of prison, I still didn't, out of federal prison, I still didn't know Jesus. That's when my wife, I went the first time with her. She said, "Let's go to church". I was going to go just to... my wife's going. Let me support her. I go. And as I'm there, they're passing baskets and they're doing all that stuff, and I'm like, "Man, I'm out of here," and as I was walking outside, a voice said to me, "Don't miss the beauty of the forest because of some of the ugliness of its trees". And I said, "Wow," and it hit me hard. I felt God's presence. So I came back the next weekend, and that next weekend is when I accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior and literally learned the seed principle.

Sid Roth: What's the seed principle?

Robby Eddy: Well, to me, the seed principle is huge to me. It's tithing. Tithing, giving, it's all to God, and this unfair advantage is the whole Bible, it's not some of it. It's not the New Testament. It's the Old Testament, the New Testament. It's the Word of God, and when you stand on God's Word, all of it, the anointing will fall on you. You get this unfair advantage. So I learned right away, tithing is huge to me because when you give God your money, you're giving God your heart. So you're trusting God because a man who gives God his money is saying, "I trust you God".

Sid Roth: It's because money had been a stronghold for you, and when you found out the law of sowing and reaping, you took to it like a duck to water.

Robby Eddy: A hundred percent. Like God says, what the enemy meant for evil, He will turn to good, and that's exactly what He did. He took the same thing, what the enemy meant to take me down, and used it, and I've used that in my life now.

Sid Roth: Okay. They gave an altar call at the service. What happened?

Robby Eddy: At this altar, I stood up. They asked me if I wanted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior. I did. I grabbed the piece of paper. I call it tipping God. I wasn't tithing yet. I pulled out a little bit of money. I put it inside the thing. They said "Bring the full tithe into the storehouse, If I will not open up the windows of Heaven for you and pour blessings, you can't contain them. Test Me". And it was the only spot that God was saying to test Him. I tested Him, and I'll tell you what, and at this time, that's how graceful and how powerful God is and how, to me tithing is a thing, I watched tithing quadruple my income. Tithing is not a money thing. It's a spiritual thing, and God showed me that.

Sid Roth: Now. All right. Jesus is definitely your Lord now. You get filled with the Holy Spirit. What was that like?

Robby Eddy: Honestly, when I got filled with the Holy Spirit, that changed my whole entire life. It went from, I call it, not a, not a weak a Christian, but I didn't have a boldness. When I got baptized in the Holy Spirit and the fire rained upon me, I was crying my eyes out, bawling, and I felt fire all over me that immediately from that day on. And I spoke in tongues the very first time. I prayed in tongues, and from that day on is when the powerful stuff happened. It's the same thing with Jesus. When Jesus got baptized in water, He was right there with John. After that, the dove came down. He got baptized in the Holy Ghost, and that's when His ministry started. That's when He started casting out devils, raising the dead, healing the sick.

Sid Roth: I am so amazed when I watch you, of the transformation that has occurred in your life, Robby. It is, you say that about me, but I was nothing compared to what you are right now. Still facing a potential of 25 years in federal prison, good time for the unfair advantage to explode in his life. You're about to find out how outrageously unfair it really is, and even better, Robby will impart the outrageously unfair advantage to you when we return.

Sid Roth: Robby, all the way back, when you were in that jail cell, you received an anointing of the unfair advantage. Would you define, in fact, look in the camera and tell the people what the unfair advantage is.

Robby Eddy: The unfair advantage is completely giving yourself to God, surrendering yourself and being obedient to God's Word completely. And when you get this unfair advantage, the unfair advantage is an anointing, and the anointing breaks the yoke. I feel like there's someone right now watching this show that feels like they don't have the boldness, they don't feel worthy enough for God. God is yearning for you. All you got to do is praise. Open your arms and seek Him, and you will find Him.

Sid Roth: Give me a Biblical example of the unfair advantage.

Robby Eddy: Moses. Moses was a normal guy just like all of us. When he picked up that rod, or the snake that became the rod, the rod of God, that became an unfair advantage anointing. He literally cracked the rock, and water was coming out of it, and then he could tell that it's transferable because he gave it to Aaron. Aaron took it when it was transferred, and then he went to the river and turned it to blood. That right there shows that even back then, they had an unfair advantage.

Sid Roth: Wait until you see what happens with the unfair advantage to Robby because it's about ready to happen to you, especially when he prays for you. Robby, you're facing 25 years in prison, but it got reduced and reduced and reduced. To what?

Robby Eddy: To 5 years. I had a 25-year sentence is what I was getting, what I was facing. The federal prosecutors said that they were going to give me 10 years, and that's lenient due to my extensive criminal history, and they were right. They were 100 percent right, and the judge, this is supernatural right here. A federal judge, judges listen to prosecutors. They don't do anything different. The federal judge sentenced me to 5 years under all of them. That never happens, so right there was the first, one of the first supernatural things that happened to that, and they give me 90 days to turn myself in. And then they give me 90 days to turn myself in. During that time, I continued to seek God. I didn't stop. I kept seeking Him, seeking Him no matter what because the obsession to drink or drug was lifted from me. It was gone. Never has, and it has never returned as a matter of fact to this day. Period. It's gone. And as I went into prison, instead of going in there, I was mentally and physically, spiritually in good shape, but I told myself, "I'm going in this place, and I'm coming out better". And when I went in there, I started helping people. I started moving. I was mentoring people. I was bringing people to God, and I still didn't even have Yeshua yet. If things get powerful later, I'm in it. As I'm in there, that's exactly what happened, and then out of nowhere, nowhere, nowhere, they say, "John Eddy, you got legal mail". Now, this guy, my case worker, he loved Jesus. Now, at this time, I was scared of... You talked about Jesus, I might have gotten in a fight with you, man. I just wasn't there. I had the veil over my eyes. I had, he had me, this guy had Jesus everywhere, and he said, "You know what"? He goes, "There's a different man than I'm looking at right now on these papers, a completely different man from this book". He had my whole, everything I'd been through. He said, "You got legal mail". It was from the judge that cut my time from 5 years to 3 years. He read it with me, and the guy started weeping, and after he said that, he goes, "That's not even all. I just got a thing on my desk today that says you get another year off". So I did 2 years on a 25-year sentence! Only God can do that!

Sid Roth: That's the unfair advantage! Okay. So you're out of prison, and that didn't stop, the unfair advantage from increasing.

Robby Eddy: I want to share this real fast. I lost my driver's license for the rest of my life. I got that back. I have 45 arrests and been to prison twice, and I have a contractor's license, the highest air conditioner and contractor's license you can probably get. Only God can do that.

Sid Roth: Now, I see so many people with the wrong motivation in giving. They give to get.

Robby Eddy: Yeah.

Sid Roth: You give because you love God. Is that a fair assessment?

Robby Eddy: One hundred percent.

Sid Roth: Okay. You are literally told many times who to give, the name of the person, the amount of money, when to give.

Robby Eddy: Yeah.

Sid Roth: Give me one example.

Robby Eddy: I'll give you an example. I was at this place. I'm, the Lord gave me the spirit of discernment. We all have it. These things are in the Bible you know. That's one of my big gifts. I was discerning this lady. She looked really sad and down, and I could tell that she was hurting financially, and I'm in this building. Before I walked up to her, the Holy Spirit said, "Pay two months of her rent," exact number. I walked up to this lady after, and I said, "Hey. How are you doing"? She goes, "Oh. Hi, Rob". She'd heard me before. I go, "Are you guys doing all right? Are you hurting here"? She goes, "Yeah, it's just, we're hurting. Ever since COVID, we're hurting financially bad right now". She was like, "It's just 2 months. If we could just get 2 months," and my heart started pounding. So I went out to my truck. I found out what she pays monthly, and I wrote her a check, and I closed it. And she didn't realize what it was, and she just said, "If you could just come here and help this place a little bit". Well, right now, I said, "I'm too busy to come do that, but I hope that helps you". And she didn't realize what it was, and she opened it up, and she started to weep and cry. And she said, "Thank you". I said, "Don't thank me. You thank Jesus. You thank God because He's the One who told me to give you that". And she hugged me, and she started weeping and crying, man. And these things happen all the time, all week long.

Sid Roth: Not just in this area is God blessing him, but because money doesn't have him, God has entrusted him with money.

Robby Eddy: Yes.

Sid Roth: He went into the air conditioning business. Where at one point he couldn't even get a driver's license, he went from four trucks in a 3-year period, span...

Robby Eddy: Yeah.

Sid Roth: 23 trucks.

Robby Eddy: Yeah.

Sid Roth: And he grew it to a $5 million year business.

Robby Eddy: Hallelujah!

Sid Roth: Only God, only the unfair advantage.

Robby Eddy: The power of God, that's the unfair advantage, man.

Sid Roth: I mean, you're minding your own business. You're taking a shower, and God tells you to do something, and he doesn't even know what the word means. What did He tell you to do?

Robby Eddy: When I'm sitting in that shower, see, God, the Spirit of the Lord is upon me. So when people ask me to do something, I do it. If God tells me to move, I move. All right? So when I'm in the shower because someone called, I got prophesied over at my church 3 weeks ago, "You're going to go somewhere with your wife, and it's going to be all muddy and dirty". We walk into this place, and it was about my book. Someone asked me, "Hey, come up here and share". It wasn't, I didn't want no money or nothing. If God tells me to move, I move. I've been blessed with a big air conditioning company. I go. So I go up there to pass on this testimony because we overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and the word of our testimony. So I go in this place, and as I'm in the shower getting scared because I got to talk in front of all these people, I'm nervous. All of a sudden, I get, the Lord tells me, you need to do an altar call. I didn't even know what it was. I never even been, I had no idea what it even was, and then my heart starts beating more because I knew I had to do it. I'm going to obey God.

Sid Roth: You thought you'd become a carpenter and build altars as God called.

Robby Eddy: And that's how God uses normal people. So my wife walks in and goes, I'm in the shower, she can't see me. She goes, "Honey, you need to do an altar call. The Holy Spirit just told me". Man, my heart starts pounding. I go, I didn't even say anything to her, and when I shared about my story up there, at the end, I called everybody, come up here for an altar call if you want to pray, and it was all dead silent. I walked back to my chair, and one guy stood up, and he walked over. He started playing the guitar, and he started playing music, and the Holy Spirit's presence just came in strong, man. I almost started weeping because that happens to me a lot when the Holy Spirit comes around. Sure enough, I go up there, and people just start, he goes, he said, "Dude, let's do an altar call. Let's do one". I found out later they've never even done one there.

Sid Roth: No wonder your wife and God had to tell you.

Robby Eddy: So people lined up. The whole church lined up outside, and Jesus baptized 10 people in the Holy Spirit. Nine of them prayed in tongues. People were healed, Yeshua moved.

Sid Roth: I'll tell you what, you could go on, and on, and on, on this unfair advantage, but tell me a little bit very quickly about your mother and your father.

Robby Eddy: So my mom and my dad, they were believers, but my dad was a Catholic, and they had a little bit of a spirit of religion on them. But my dad, you know, the shoes of peace of the gospel. I've been able to walk, and I've been able to minister and let my feet do the talking, and it's changed, people's lives have changed just by watching my actions because that's one of the unfair advantage anointings, your actions. You're not just running your mouth. Your feet are showing the way you're living. Anyone can run their mouth. So sure enough, my dad calls me. My dad has shingles, and he's about to lose his eye, all right, from shingles. My mom has anxiety for literally 20 years to the point she can't even leave the house because of anxiety and depression. My dad says, "Something is telling me to come to your office, Robby". Because my office is just anointed, it's Jesus everywhere, man. We've prayed over people. We've anointed the doors. We break bread. We pray over stuff. We play worship music. So my dad drove from Jacksonville, came up here. Now right when we started to go into my office, when he got here on a Saturday, we're walking in. When my dad walked in the door, now this is a military man, a boxer, Golden Gloves, not the crying type. He starts to fall over and starts to bawl his eyes out because he felt the presence of God. I was trying not to cry. The Holy Spirit told me, "I'm about to heal your mom and dad, and I'm going to build their faith". That's exactly what He said, and I'm getting real emotional. We walk in. He had me put on an exact song. I put the song on, "Holy Spirit" by Jesus Culture. I play it. Never heard of it in my life. My dad sits down, and I put my hands on my dad's face, and I said, "Father God, in the Name of Jesus," I asked him first, "What do you need healing for, dad"? He's weeping, and he said, "My eye". I said, "Father God, in the Name of Jesus, I'm standing on your Word right now. Your Word says that we can heal the sick, cast out devils and raise the dead". And I said, "Please heal my father in Jesus' Name". And he starts to shake and cry Father God, I pray right now that you fill him with the Holy Spirit! And Jesus baptized my dad in the Holy Spirit there. He gets up, and I sit down my mom. My mom is crying. My wife is praying in tongues. She's crying. I look at my mom, and I say,

Robby Eddy: Mom, repeat after me. "I call out the spirit of anxiety. I call out the spirit of fear. I call out the spirit of oppression. And I cast it to the pits of hell". I baptize my mom in the Holy Ghost. She starts crying her eyes' out. The Holy Spirit said, "Now look your mom in the eyes and say Jesus forgives her". I look my mom in the eye. I said, "Jesus forgives you, mom". She goes, "He does"? He does! And I just found out a few weeks ago, this is last week, that my mom held, was holding something for 40 years, for 40 years, and I just found out that I had a completely different dad. He died of colon cancer, and I went last weekend and met my brother and my sisters that I never even knew I had. You see, Jesus, literally, my mom was, I seen her the other day. She's completely free. My dad, they sent me a text message. They go to the doctor the next day. The doctor says your eye is healed. My father's eye is completely healed. You see, Jesus said that He left us to do greater things than He did. He healed the sick.

Sid Roth: Well, how is your mom's depression?

Robby Eddy: Gone. My mom is around glowing. My mom is glowing like a...

Sid Roth: Okay. Real quick. I need you to pray two things: the unfair advantage,

Robby Eddy: Yeah.

Sid Roth: And I need you to pray for whatever God tells you to pray for, and I believe every word coming out of his mouth is going to happen. Let every man be a liar, but God's Word is true. I need you to make sure you're prepared for this prayer. I want you to repeat this prayer with me and mean it to the best of your ability out loud. Repeat after me. "Dear God, I've made many mistakes. And I'm so sorry. I believe in the blood of Jesus paid the price for all of my mistakes. And they're not just forgiven they no longer exist. I'm starting fresh. And now that I'm starting fresh, Jesus, come and live inside of me. I make You, my Savior. And my Lord. Amen". Robby, pray.

Robby Eddy: Father God, Lord, I come to You in the Name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, Father, I'm crying out to You right now, Father. Father God, I pray that You get these people. You fill them and receive this unfair advantage anointing, Father God. I pray that people right now that have bad backs, cancer, anything, that You would heal them in the Name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, Father. I pray the blood of Jesus over these people, Father. I'm crying out because Your word says that we can do it, Lord. So I'm asking You right now, and I'm asking the people that are watching that You receive this anointing, that You walk in boldness, that You walk like Jesus did, the same way that He did, that you lay hands on people, you heal the sick, you raise the dead and put this unfair advantage anointing on everything in your life. Father God, I pray that someone's back is hurting, and their neck is hurting, that immediately the pain is gone in the Name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth. I feel someone's arm is hurting. Someone's got bad legs. Some people can't even walk. Someone is looking at this right now weeping, and I'm saying it right now, in the Name of Jesus Christ, to Yeshua, shed blood, that You heal them, Father, in Jesus' Name!

Sid Roth: And one more thing, people's fingers are being healed in Jesus' Name. Walk in the unfair advantage!
