Sid Roth - I Talked to Jesus for 1 Hour (He Answered My Hardest Question)

Sid Roth: Welcome Rauch HaKodesh Welcome, Spirit of the Living God. I'm reminded of my friend Kathryn Kuhlman. She would say, "Don't grieve the Holy Spirit. He's all that I have," and I tell you He is all that I have, and He's more than enough. My guest, Freddy Ramirez, encountered supernatural evil as a young child. Tell me about it.

Freddy Ramirez: Sid, I wish I could tell you that the first experience I had was with Heaven, but unfortunately it wasn't. But there's something I want to say. I had a supernatural encounter with the darkness at a young age at 5 years old. But even as preparation, and even now, I'm just hearing the Holy Spirit tell me that there are people that are watching that are being tormented by demonic spirits even as I was from the ages of 5 years old all the way to 18, 19 years old. I was born in the Dominican Republic, and I was living there. And my parents left me off at my grandmother's house, and one day there was a heavy thunderstorm. And I remember that I go out to the backyard to go pick up my dog to bring her back inside. And as I do that, there is this strong lightning that strikes almost right in front of me. And the best that I can describe how this happened is it felt like I was absorbed into the lightning. And as a 5-year-old kid, Sid, I saw 12 shadows. I couldn't see their faces, and they just stood there and just looked at me. Now, I'm spooked out as a 5-year-old, and I go inside. My aunt, I tell my aunt what's happening. She tries to close all of the windows and the doors, but the winds are blowing so strongly in the house that she's struggling. So I'm scared even more, so I go to my safe space, which was my grandmother. I saw something that I, it took me a while to really get over. My grandmother's eyes started rolling back to, It was just pure white. And she started saying this name out loud, and I remembered it because it traumatized me so much. She started saying, [Santa Ba'rbara- saint of lightning] [Sounds like]: "Santa Varvada, Santa Varvada, Santa Varvada," which, later I found out that this is associated with santeria or voodoo as well. She grabs me by the hand, and she takes me to the front door. And the moment that the door opens, another lightning strikes right in front of me. But this time, there is a shadow of a woman that comes in. I let go of my grandmother's hand, and I run to her room, and I hide under her bed. And for years, I kept this completely secret. I remember it was until the age of 13 that I told my father, which this is his mother. But my dad was just like, "Well, come on, Freddy. No. My mom was a Christian". So, okay, I'm not going to bring it up again. And when I tell my mother, she tells me, "That makes sense". And I'm like, "Wait, what? What do you mean, 'That makes sense'"? And she begins to explain to me, "Freddy, what you don't know is that your grandmother was associated with a family friend that was practicing voodoo, and she hated my mother so much so that she told my mother, 'I went to Haiti, and I spend a whole weekend there doing a voodoo ritual to curse your son and to give him over to Satan.'" I asked her, "Well, where is she now?" because in my heart, I wanted to, as weird as this may sound, I wanted to bless her. I wanted to preach to her. But I also wanted to thank her as well because what the enemy meant for evil, God had turned it around for His good. She had a mysterious brain tumor. The doctors could not explain, and she tragically passed away a couple years after that. So one of the things that we need to understand is that when you mess with the demonic, the demonic will start to mess back with you.

Sid Roth: When you moved to the U.S., it even got worse. Some of the things you were involved in are called sleep paralysis. How did you get out of that?

Freddy Ramirez: It was very difficult, Sid. For many years even after 5 years old, when I came to this country there were moments where I was suffering from sleep paralysis every single night.

Sid Roth: What is sleep paralysis?

Freddy Ramirez: Sleep paralysis is the technical term that they give, but it's totally a demonic spirit. It's when you're sleeping, and you're awake. Your mind is awake. Your eyes are open, but your body is completely asleep. You're frozen.

Sid Roth: Hmm.

Freddy Ramirez: And so you are literally paralyzed. That's why they call it sleep paralysis. There's one moment where I remember that I was just praying and just hoping that God would come and rescue me, and I was just scared. And so I remember one day that I whispered the name Jesus, and every demon just completely left. But the victory truly happened when I gave my life to the Lord. That's really when it began to happen because when I started to build a relationship with God, and I'll tell you this, even when I started coming to the Lord, I still suffered from these demonic visitations. But one day in prayer, the Lord told me, "Freddy, I want you to take authority over what's happening to you. I want you to command my angels to stand watch over you". And so I did exactly what the Holy Spirit told me to do. I said, "In the Name of Jesus, I command angels to stand guard in my room, and I command all demonic spirits to never visit me ever again".

Sid Roth: So what happened?

Freddy Ramirez: In the moment, Sid, I will tell you, I was so excited. At that time, I was scared of going to sleep, but not... I was excited to go to sleep because I would literally see angels standing in my room. And I've never suffered a sleep paralysis ever since that one time.

Sid Roth: Great. Pray. Pray for people, not just sleep paralysis but sleep problems right now.

Freddy Ramirez: Yes. I want to pray for everyone that is watching at home. If you're having problems having to sleep, you may not be even seeing demons, but I'm just even hearing that there's people that you suffer from migraines, even when you're trying to sleep. Your mind is just running wild, and you have no peace. Father, in the Name of Jesus, in the same way that You spoke to me and told me, "Take authority over the demonic spirits that are coming after you," Lord, right now in the Name of Jesus, in the authority that You have given to us because of what You did on the Cross, we command every spirit to leave Your people alone, and we speak Your peace into the minds of Your sons and Your daughters. Father, we declare every single person that is being robbed of their rest, I declare it, God, You give them supernatural rest in Jesus' mighty Name.

Sid Roth: You walked into a church, a real church. What happened?

Freddy Ramirez: This was such an amazing time in my life because I was new in the Lord, and I was so hungry. I was having so many experiences growing up seeing angels and demons. But I felt the Lord beginning to call me. I didn't really know who God was. I grew up Catholic. I've heard about God. I've heard about the Pope. I've heard about the saints. But I didn't really know who Jesus was. But I was hungry. And so I remember one day I got up early in the morning to pray, and I got to this church building. And I start walking towards the front, and all of a sudden I see this tall man in a white robe. I couldn't see His face. He walked, but He walked in a speed that just not make sense. It was like He was walking, but He was running at the same time. He walks right through me...

Sid Roth: Through you?

Freddy Ramirez: ...literally right through me.

Sid Roth: Hmm.

Freddy Ramirez: I was completely amazed. So I remember I turned around, and when I turn around, I just see a sizzling smoke just appear. And I see Him walk into the back and just disappear. But the beautiful thing, Sid, is that when I see Him walk away and disappear, I could see countless of angels in the back room. So intercessors are praying in the front. But I see angels praising God and dancing in the back. And after the prayer is over, I see this, a friend of mine that I recognize, and I explain to him exactly what just happened to me. He began to tell me, was just like, "Oh, my God, you saw Jesus. That was Jesus. He was coming after you". I'm like, "Jesus"? And I can tell you, Sid, I didn't understand what happened to me in my life in that moment. But something changed. Something really changed inside of me. It's almost the best way that I can describe it is I felt like God took me. God took my heart, and He's kept it really ever since.

Sid Roth: Now comes the most amazing 1-hour visitation with the same Jesus that gifted Freddy with the supernatural gift of prophecy, healing and deliverance and commissioned him to teach God's priority. You'll be surprised. It's not souls. Be right back.

Sid Roth: Freddy, tell me about that 1-hour visitation with Jesus.

Freddy Ramirez: So at this point in my life, I'm walking with the Lord, but I'm still trying to understand Him. And so I remember one morning I wake up to pray at 5 a.m., and I get out from my room, and I go to my living room, and I sit down in a chair to pray, and as I'm praying, now this is going to sound crazy, but I guess it's the right show to talk about...

Sid Roth: It's going to sound normal to me. Normal is defined by the Bible, that is.

Freddy Ramirez: Absolutely. So as I'm praying, I see a light from across me. And when I look towards the light, I see this sizzling light kind of similar to the same one I saw in the church building. But now, it began to open up, and it began to consume the entire room, my entire living room. And so everything began to change. Now, understand it's 5 a.m. It's dark. I'm in my living room, and now everything is changing to this beautiful forest with this light and all of these beautiful trees and grass and flowers. And the only thing that remains the same is the chair that I'm sitting on and the chair right next to me. And I'm wondering, "Am I hallucinating? What's really going on here"? And then from that same sizzling, fiery light comes out a man, and immediately I knew that it was Jesus. And Jesus comes out, and He sits on the chair right next to me. And I remember so clearly that I thought in my mind, "Oh, my God, I have had so many questions that I wanted to ask You. But I've completely forgotten them all," because I'm just amazed that Jesus is sitting right next to me. And as He looked at me, He understood everything that I thought. I was surprised. It was like He responded...

Sid Roth: In thoughts.

Freddy Ramirez: thoughts.

Sid Roth: And you heard His response.

Freddy Ramirez: And He just put me at ease. And the best way that I can describe what I felt when I was sitting next to Jesus is I felt that majesty. Listen, when Jesus appears, it's not, "Am I going to worship"? No. Your body just knows to worship the Creator that made it. And so I remember, I was just in full worship. But what put me at ease is that I felt like I was sitting next to a friend. And I remember that... This is probably the most memorable thing of seeing Jesus. I looked into His eyes. And now the Bible talks in Book of Revelations of how Jesus has an eyes of fire, but the truth that I have learned about Jesus, that Jesus can do whatever He wants. I looked into His eyes, and it's not just that they were blue. But I could see the ocean in His eyes. They were alive, Sid. It wasn't just a picture. As I looked into His eyes, it's almost like I was getting absorbed by oceans of love.

Sid Roth: Hmm.

Freddy Ramirez: And I just completely just felt the presence and the love of God that He had for me. But before even I asked them, He told me, "You have questions for me. Ask me". I was just like, "Okay". So I asked Him, "Why did you allow all of those things to happen to me when I was 5 years old"? I was just like, "I went through so much suffering, Lord. Where were you"? And I'll never forget. Jesus looked at me with sadness in His eyes. And it was in that moment that I understood that He felt the pain more than I did. He felt much more compassion and much more sorrow than what I did. But Jesus looked at me. He told me, "Freddy, even though you didn't see me and even though you didn't feel me, I was there. I protected you, and I brought you out of this darkness so that I can meet with you and because I have a purpose and a call for your life". And so we began to have conversations for about an hour, and it was amazing. And then there came a point where Jesus got up, and He said, "I've got to go". I'm like, "Will we do this again"? And He told me, "I'm going to teach you how to encounter Me". And He said, "Freddy, you need to understand, it's not about you. I want to train you to encounter Me so that you can teach My people how to encounter Me because I want to have an intimate relationship with My people".

Sid Roth: And that actually leads you to this question. When Freddy said our major priority is not souls...

Freddy Ramirez: Yes.

Sid Roth: I live for people to come to know the Messiah. What did Jesus mean?

Freddy Ramirez: Yes. I'm sure a lot of people are wondering the same thing, that if it's not souls, what is it about? And listen. Souls is the top priority for God, and it is a top priority for us. But the Holy Spirit one day told me this. He told me, "Freddy, I don't need you to advance My Kingdom. I can advance the Kingdom on My own. I choose to use you. But My priority, our priority, is to have relationship with our Father". Everything flows from that place. If we don't have relationship with God, what power do we have to save? We don't even have the power to bring anyone to Christ if it's not through the Holy Spirit. See, sometimes we think that if we want them to be convicted, we have to see it. But the truth though that Jesus really began to teach me is if we just learn to plant the seed, if we just learn to preach the Gospel, if we just learn to bring the Good News of Jesus, the Holy Spirit will do His job of convicting them of their sin. And all we have to do is collect the harvest that is coming for us.

Sid Roth: Some people think that their ministry is their purpose, but you say there's a higher purpose.

Freddy Ramirez: Absolutely. It's not a pastor. It's not a prophet. It's not an evangelist, but it's a son. It's a daughter. It's higher than being an apostle or a prophet because a son and a daughter, it means that you have a close, intimate relationship with the Spirit of God. And when you begin to flow out of that place of sonship, when you just learn to be a son and a daughter first, then everything just begins to flow. Ministry flows out of the place of sonship. Ministry flows out of the place of intimate relationship with the Holy Spirit. I love what you said earlier when you were quoting Kathryn Kuhlman, which is, "Don't grieve the Holy Spirit because He is all that I have". And I've learned that's what Jesus wants to lead us all to, where we come to a point and we can say, "You know what? I may have a ministry. I may have all of these wonderful things that's happening in my life, but nothing means more than my relationship with the Holy Spirit. He is everything to me".

Sid Roth: How about you? Do you have a relationship with God? Is that your highest purpose? Do you even know for sure your sins are forgiven? Repeat this prayer out loud with me. Mean it to the best of your ability. "Dear God, I've made so many mistakes. I'm so sorry. I believe Your blood washes me clean. And now that I'm clean, I ask Jesus to live inside of me, and be my Lord and Savior. Amen". Freddy, what is God about ready to do in America?

Freddy Ramirez: I had a vision where I was standing in front of this traditional Southern church building. And I see the devil and an army of demons, and they came armed with bows and arrows filled with fire. And the devil gave his orders, and they all just began to shoot at the church building. And eventually the church building just collapsed. There was so much smoke. It was just completely obliterated to the point of ashes. I saw the devil see the church destroyed, and he began to rejoice. All the demons began to just shout and just get happy because they really thought they destroyed the church. And then all of a sudden, the devil stopped, and he says, "Wait a minute. Something is wrong". And he looks towards the side, and Jesus is there, and He whispers to the devil, "Thank you".

Sid Roth: "Thank you"?

Freddy Ramirez: Yeah. Jesus said, "Thank you," you see, because the Lord told me this, that many people are going to think that because of the dark times that we're living in, the church is being destroyed. Churches are closing down, and we see this happening after COVID. Churches are closing down at a rapid rate. People are leaving the church. It looks like right now like the church is losing, but what God is actually doing, He's using the devil to destroy the systems of the church because He's about to bring in a new move of the Spirit that's going to bring us back to the glory days, the same days that we experienced back in the Old Testament and in the Book of Acts where we just saw the move of God with Elijah, with Paul, with Peter. Those are the days that we are coming into now that God wants to bring us back into.

Sid Roth: Freddy, pray for the people.

Freddy Ramirez: I want to pray that in the same way the Holy Spirit came and visited me and brought me into encounters that it will happen to you as well. Just lift up your hands right now. Even in this audience, just begin to lift up your hands. Father, right now in Jesus' Name, we say we are hungry. Come on. Can we just say that right now?

Sid Roth: We are hungry.

Freddy Ramirez: We are hungry for more of You.

Sid Roth: We are hungry for more of You.

Freddy Ramirez: Spirit of God, come and release Your fire. Come and release Your anointing. Let us know You in a deeper way. Let us hunger You. Let us hunger for more of You now. We receive the Holy Spirit in a fresh way. Baptize us now, Lord, in a new wave of the Spirit of God in Jesus' Mighty Name. And everybody says...

Sid Roth: Amen.

Freddy Ramirez: Amen.
