Sid Roth — Sing Your Way to Victory
SID: Hello. Sid Roth here. Welcome. Welcome to my world where it’s naturally supernatural. Are you interested in a breakthrough in one or more areas of your life? I am. Well my guest has been shown a way for breakthrough that I believe is an ancient way that God is restoring right now, because when she prays this way that God instructed her, she has 100 percent breakthrough, 100 percent of the time.
I want to find out about this. How about you? I have to tell you, there is such a presence of tranquility as Julie Meyer plays the piano and sings. I have felt peace, but this is almost a different level of peace. The only word I can come up with is tranquility. And Julie, I think it has to do with your beginnings.
You see, she had an alcoholic mom and the only peace Julie could find is to go to her piano and just sing. And she wasn't even a believer in Jesus, but she knew hymns that would bring her such peace. And then, believe it or not, she met a pair of twins, the Roth, R-O-T-H, twins, no relation. And the Roth twins kept pestering her, "You got to come to our Bible study."
She didn't want anything to do with it. But she said, "If I win this state piano competition I'll go." She did awful, but she won. She went, age 17, she becomes a believer and she hasn't been the same since. But like a lot of 17-year-olds, she didn't like the way she looked, she didn't like the way she played the piano. You were pretty negative, period.
JULIE: I was very negative, yes, towards myself.
SID: I know, I understand.
SID: But you found something that supernaturally broke you through to be the person God wanted you to be. Tell me about it.
JULIE: Yeah. And that was in my 30s. So I spent a lot of time from 17 to 30 not liking me.
SID: You had a lot of practice.
JULIE: Yes. I began to sing the Word. I began to, I would take a psalm, I love the Psalms, I would take a scripture, maybe just one or two and I would just sing the Bible, and I would sing it three ways. I would sing it word for word and then I would take the same two scriptures, it doesn't have to be a whole chapter, and I would turn it into a prayer. So it was just my prayer. And then I would sing it as if God were singing to me.
SID: That's a hundred percent breakthrough, a hundred percent of the time when you did this.
JULIE: It is my testimony.
SID: Can I hear like 30 seconds of you demonstrating this.
JULIE: Yes. I would take a scripture, you know, Psalm 116, verses 1 and 2, [singing] "I love the Lord because He hears my voice and my cry. You've been down and listen, every time I sing…" [talking] If I'm going to turn it into a prayer, I'm singing, [singing] I love you Jesus. You hear my cry. You see me right here, right now and you've been down to listen." [talking] And the best part is you prophesy it. So I'm putting me in it and I'm singing it as if God were singing it to me. [singing] Julie, I hear your voice, I hear your cry and I'm not too busy. I love your song. Just hold on. Just hold on. I'm going to answer you. You're going to hear my voice. Just hold on. Things are gonna change. Just listen, listen, listen. [talking] Hallelujah. That is a prophetic word for somebody today.
SID: I agree. But I’m going to tell you something. I cannot carry a tune except if I pray in tongues. Then I can carry a tune. But I can't. And I'm doing the same thing now. So if I can do it, you can do it. Now Julie, there is a song that you sing called, "Healing Oil". I want to release you now to the piano to sing that song, and minister to us. But I'm going to tell you something. That healing oil, you get ready. You get prepared to have it just drip upon you and wherever that oil goes, healing is going to go deep, deep inside of you, physical, spiritual, emotional, anything you need. "Healing Oil".
JULIE: Let your oil flow down. Let your oil flow down just as a river flows into the sea oil flow into me. Right here, right now into me. It's sweet like honey as it tenderly flows washing over me dripping into my soul. I'll stay in your presence, I'll never let you go. I'll just get letting your oil flow. Let your oil flow down. Let your oil flow down just as a river flows into the sea oil flow into me. Right here, right now let it flow into me.
SID: So Julie, they see you sing at the piano and they say, oh, she has got this glamourous life. But Julie is a soccer mom. Her kids, she has identical twins. Talk about--
JULIE: Very busy.
SID: Sure. And even that busyness, for four years she heard about people that had dreams and visions, but she wasn't having much. So she wanted it. So she prayed for four years in between soccer games. Why did you keep up? Why didn't you just give up?
JULIE: Well in 2000, I just remember the day I was sitting at my piano and I was singing scripture. It was when my kids are at school, I was singing Revelations 4:1, you know, "There was a door open in Heaven," you know, "Come up here and I will show you things that must take place after this." And I knew it was from John, but something hit my heart, and I just said, I want this. I want it and I won't stop until I get it. And it was just a groan. It was just, it consumed me. I read, I knew Acts 2:17, "It's a personal promise", and I just began to ask for it over and over, I want to see you this side, you know. I get to on the next side, but this side.
SID: You know, I'm reminded with you of the promise in Ephesians that you will get exceedingly, abundantly beyond anything you ever asked or thought according to the power that dwells within you. That's what happened with you. She didn't just have dreams and visions. She actually was there. She was taken to these places. She felt it. She experienced it. But I recently had guest on, one of my favorite people, Heidi Baker.
SID: And you had the privilege of going to Mozambique to be with Heidi, and you were ministering there like you minister for us, and what happened?
SID: It was amazing. I simply, again, because I love the Word, I began to sing, I just opened my Bible and I started singing from Revelation 1, where John sees, he turns around and he sees Jesus, and he begins to describe, you know, what he looked like. I simply began to sing this portion of scripture, starting in verse 12 to 18. And suddenly, I mean, 100 percent, not just to some people, the whole room, it was the Harvest School, every single person was caught up in dreams and visions.
SID: About how many people approximately?
JULIE: Oh maybe a couple hundred. It was full. And I remember I could, it lasted like three hours and I was just singing the Word, and like the spirit of prophesy fell on the room, and people just began, would begin prophesying over different people. But everyone was having dreams and visions, and encounters, and they were laying out on the floor, and I can hear moans and screams, and laughter, and all these different sounds. And I mean, the Spirit of the Lord was there. It was an encounter. And the next day, the reports that I started getting in were, you know, people taken to Heaven. The one that impacted me was a young girl and she had been taken to Hell.
SID: To Hell.
JULIE: People were having, they were having dreams, they were having visions of Heaven and Hell, both. But this young girl was taken to Hell and she saw her family in Hell. And then she came, I mean, then she was out of it and they brought her to me the next day. But what happened is what I felt from the Spirit of the Lord. I said, I believe that the Lord is putting His burden on you. Have you been praying for your family? Have you been praying? No, she said, she really hasn't, but she said, "Ever since I saw them in Hell," she said, "I am gripped. I can't stop praying for their salvation." And I said, "That's the purpose. It's not, your family isn't going. I don't believe that." But her heart got gripped with the burden of God to pray for salvation for her family. And when I said that, I said, this is the purpose. This is the point of the vision that hope, the grief left her, but the burden stayed.
SID: Julie, you have so many songs that, I think it's unfair to even call it when you minister and sing at the piano, "songs". Something, it's a dimension beyond that. Would you go to the piano right now, because one of my favorite is, "Beautiful Healer". I'm going to believe that the beautiful healer is going to visit you right now. Many, many, many people will be healed while Julie plays and sings.
JULIE: Wonderful savior, kind-hearted God, beautiful healer, merciful one. Wonderful savior, kind-hearted God, beautiful healer, merciful one. You are the fountain of life. You are the essence of healing, living water in abundance, rushing, rushing, rushing, flowing, flowing, flowing to me. Right here, right now. You are the fountain of life. You are the essence of healing, living water in abundance, rushing, rushing, rushing, flowing, flowing, flowing to me.
SID: Julie, I heard you share about, "gotta get higher". I have to tell you, I've been a believer many, many years, but it impacted, it convicted me, and it is necessary for you. Tell me briefly about it.
JULIE: Yeah. I had an encounter with the Lord. It was during our renewal services in Kansas City, and I was actually out for four hours. This was not a dream. It was an encounter. But I went down and all of a sudden, two angels picked me up by my arms, and I could hear their wings. These had wings. And I could hear their wings going [grrrr]. And both of them, they were saying, "Gotta get higher, gotta get higher, gotta get higher". And I could see like this open portal, like I could see what I would have thought Jacob might have saw. And but I was hanging there, and I was hanging there for a long time, and they kept saying, "Gotta get higher, gotta get higher". And in a dream or an encounter you're still you. I don't know any more. And in this, I turned around and I said, "What's the problem? You're an angel. I'm not that big." I just didn't get it, you know. And suddenly, this very large, like 30-foot grabbed me from the back of my collar and pulled me up, so I'm dangling right in front of his face. And he said, "It's not them, it's you. You've got too many gates open. Your mouth gate, your eye gate, your ear gate, what you say, what you listen to, what you watch. If you want to go up, you gotta close the gates." And suddenly I heard, "Bam! Bam! Bam!" And I shot straight up into this portal, and that's where these angels were just having me eat the scroll, eat the scroll, eat the scroll, eat the scroll.
SID: You know, can you see why I got convicted. And you know what? To be convicted, that's not the purpose, but to repent and change, that is the purpose.
JULIE: And it's daily.
JULIE: I mean, it is a daily thing.
SID: Now Julie, you didn't have a particular burden for the Jewish people and the nation Israel. But something happened to you that changed it all. Tell us about it.
JULIE: I had a dream and in the dream, Jesus took me, and he said, "I want you to meet my friends. If you know my friends, you'll pray for my friends." And I knew suddenly, as I looked around, I was in Jerusalem, and I was walking with Jesus, and I could see. I could see Yeshua. I could see his heart, his passion, his love for the Jewish people, but I could see at this time that they didn't care and the brokenness of his heart. And suddenly in the dream, as we were walking, he began to look at certain people, and he would simply nod like that. And suddenly, that nod, it was appearing in my glory eye to eye and flesh to flesh. Suddenly, they saw him and I could see this awakening that they didn't believe in Yeshua, but suddenly they did. He revealed himself. And they, there was a large group of rabbis. They were praying at the Wall. And he went up to this group and he looked at the rabbis one by one, and suddenly they saw him. Suddenly, they knew this is Yeshua. [People chanting "Yeshua"]
JULIE: And they went up to their room, in this dream, and I was following them. In this dream, they went up to a high room and they were saying, "This changes everything! This changes everything!" And I knew that the day was coming, the hour was coming when the rabbis of Jerusalem would go up to the mountain of the Lord and shout out, "Yeshua is Messiah! Yeshua is Messiah! Yeshua is Messiah!" And that is the dream and I believe it.
SID: And I believe that now is that time. And in his name every knee will bow and every tongue will confess that Jesus is the Messiah and Lord. And if you have not bowed your knee to the King of Kings, the Messiah of Israel, the King of the Jews, the Lord of Lords, now is that time. You make Jesus your Lord. You confess with your mouth, I believe that Jesus died and rose from the dead, and because of his wounds, my sins are totally washed away. I am righteous. I am clean and now that I am clean, Lord Jesus, come inside of me. Take over my life. I make you Lord of my life. I want to know you better. I want to love you more. I want my life to count. I don't want to be like that girl saw her parents in Hell. I want to be in Heaven, but I want to walk in Heaven on Earth. And the only way I can do that is to know you, make you my Lord, read the Bible, and be true to you, and Love God, and love my neighbor as myself, and I can't even do that without your help. Help Jesus!
