Sid Roth - Spiritual Avalanche
Sid Roth: My guest, Steve Hill is so hungry for God, he went to the various moves of God throughout the world and he received the same thing these great men and women of God had. And he went to a church, a single church in Pensacola, Florida, and from all over the world, because the word got out, the power of God was there, four million people came to that one single church.
Well the devil tried to knock him out. He was on his deathbed. He was preparing the funeral arrangements. And a great miracle happened and he also was given, at that time, a vision. It was like he could see it happening, and it is what is about ready to happen to Planet Earth that he literally feels everyone must understand this vision. Hello. I'm here with Steve Hill, and I'm looking at almost like his rap sheet. At age 10, his dad starts him drinking beer, alcohol. By 12, 13, he's into hard drugs, injecting drugs into his veins, arrested 13 times. You know, when I read about myself I can't believe that that was me. You must feel the same way about yourself. That's not even you.
Steve: It's a miracle that all of us are alive and that we made it through it. You know, one of my favorite things to do when I'm in my hometown area, when I would witness to like young men and women that are involved in drugs and alcohol, I would take them, of course if it was a girl, I would take them to somebody else to the graves of my dead friends. And I would talk to them about Carlos. I'd talk to them about Billy. I'd say Billy was 19. You'll meet a similar fate if you do the same by using those drugs. And I would witness because no one ever believes it's going to happen to them. No one ever believes. The devil comes to steal, kill and destroy. But he's patient. He'll take you on a journey. If he can finally get you there and drop into Hell, that's his final goal, and it's a goal he had for my life.
Sid Roth: He had a total transformation, and as a result, he had, first of all, there was a key that I noticed. You were mentored by some of the best men of God: David Wilkerson, Leonard Raven-Hill.
Steve: David Wilkerson, Leonard Raven-Hill are two of the men, to me, they're my spiritual fathers. And people ask me, they say, why are you the way you are. Well we're all products of who we've been hanging around. And that's why I say, pick your friends carefully. Okay. And David Wilkerson put me through Bible school, met Leonard Raven-Hill. Nicky Cruz taught us on evangelism. So I was raised around, Raven-Hill was friends with Smith-Wigglesworth.
Sid Roth: So it goes on and on. It's all connected. But another thing I noticed about, you were hungry for God. Whatever he heard there was a move of God. He was there. I mean, a lot of people say, if God wants to do something to me, He'll come to me. Well he can and will. But I'm so hungry for God. If I hear He's somewhere, I'm out there. That's the way Steve was.
Steve: See, it's so non-biblical for people to say if God's going to move, He's got to come to me. Who do we think we are to say to God. He's already come. He's already come down. Okay. And He set it up. We celebrate Christmas Day. He set up the whole pattern. The baby Jesus was there. The shepherds had to come to him. Later on, the wise men had to come to him. And I always tell people, God gave the first altar call. He sets it up to where we got to go to Him. And so I have pursued the Lord all my life.
Sid Roth: Let's take you to Argentina, the revival. You went there. They've been in revival more years than I can even remember. But tell me, when you saw Carlos Annacondia.
Steve: We lived there for seven years during the peak of the Argentine revival, and it's still moving on. God is still moving. We saw churches go from 500 to 20,000. Just amazing. Started, my wife and I planted 13 churches, built an orphanage. But Carlos Annacondia, when I got around him and..., and those that speak Spanish, I speak Spanish fluently, my wife and I lived there seven years. But Carlos was insane, and if you're watching Carlos, that's a respectful word for you. Okay. He was insane for the things of God. And he's a man that owns a nuts and bolts factory. And so anyone that feels like you're common, okay, look at this man.
And I went to one of his crusades, in a nutshell, because we talk all day about this man. Went to his crusade, 20, 30,000 out there in an open field, a bunch of just hanging, naked light bulbs hanging everywhere. No big fanfare. Just this man that had authority. He had authority over darkness. And I would watch him in front of tens of thousands of people, and he would go, in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, I bind you, Satan. And as far as the eye can see, people were hit by the power and thrown the ground. People that were walking down the sidewalks not even paying attention to him would be thrown to the ground, start shaking under the power. And I saw this, and I went, Jesus, whatever this man has, Jesus, Peter, shall heal the sick. And this is the closest thing I've ever seen to that. I want what he has, and you'd better get hungry, my friend. If you want to be used of God, you got to have a hunger. You got to have a craving for that. And I got that.
Sid Roth: Steve went to these various moves of God. I was hungry. I was overwhelmed with what I saw. Obviously, a lot of other people worldwide were overwhelmed. Four million to that little church in Pensacola, Florida because the power of God was there. Tell me about that girl that had cancer.
Steve: There are so many stories. I want to talk about this vision that God has just given me, because many, you're looking for these peaks in your life. The peak in your life is in front of you, not behind you. Okay. There's more to God than what you have. But the Brownsville revival, we saw millions of people come through. I preached there for five years, saw four million people come through. But they would come in jets. They would come in private jets. They'd some on trains. They'd hitchhike. They came from all over because we had the news, CNN and all these guys covered it. And so they brought the lost in. But this one little girl, 15 years old, came in. She couldn't have weighed 80 pounds, had a little baseball cap on, dying of cancer.
A long story in a nutshell, we did something we never did. We brought her on the platform, thousands of people there that night, and I just felt of the Lord that we needed to lay hands on her. She was going to die. She was sent there as a last request. She wanted to go to Brownsville, not Disney. She didn't want to go anywhere else but the Brownsville revival. Laid hands on her.
Two weeks later, this is before Internet and all this kind of stuff, Internet was out, but it wasn't Facebook and all, her father sends us a letter, "Just did the PET scans, just did all the scans. All the cancer is gone". And now years later, we just contacted her and she's graduated from University. She's doing fantastic. All the cancer is gone. Now remember, she was given up for dead. And so we've just seen so many miracles. I believe, that's why I love your program, It's Supernatural. If you don't believe in the supernatural, you don't believe in Jesus. I want to say that again. If you don't believe in the supernatural, you don't believe in Jesus.
Sid Roth: Now you see why the devil tried to take him out. And let me tell you. Something happened to him. I observed him before he developed cancer and it was terminal. There was no chance of him surviving. He was preparing for his funeral, making arrangements with his wife. He is literally on his deathbed. And he cries out to Jesus, and he says, "Jesus, if you want to take me, take me. But if you leave me here and give me my strength back I will win a million souls for you". And guess what? God answered his prayer. God gave him a vision for the last days. You'd better listen to this.
Steve: I recently had a supernatural visitation from the Lord. I am under mandate to share with everyone. It's tearing me up even as we talk right now, because God, I was in Heaven devotions and I was sitting on my couch. I could take you to the exact place. I was sitting on my couch and the Lord, it was early in the morning. No one else was awake in the house. And I closed my eyes and I began to see this color vision come down and just, a vision is just a supernatural experience from God. And He began to download this in my spirit. And I saw this resort, an incredible ski resort, and I opened my eyes because it was so real, Sid. And I opened my eyes and it disappeared. So I closed them again and I began to shake because it was like watching a movie. And I looked up, and I saw above the ski resort, I saw this mountain of snow.
Now I'm a skier. I saw this mountain of snow, but it was piled up. It was more than what we needed to ski. And the Lord began to speak to me about the End Times, that this mountain of snow is all the false teaching that is falling on the church right now. And if we don't do something about it, if we don't destroy these layers and layers, and layers of snow then it's going to come crashing down on innocent Christians. And in this vision, the resort was the church. These were people that just came. They came, they paid to be at the resort. We give tithes to be at church. Innocent people are going to die if we don't do something about this. I can't believe it's happening in my lifetime. My daughter, who was in Bible school, one of the teachers stood up and said to the students, said that "Once you're a Christian you are free to do anything you want. You can do anything you want. You're free to sin".
And so my daughter is sitting out there and he's saying, "You're free to jump in bed with your boyfriend, you're free to drink, you're free to do anything you want because the blood covers it all". And then the deification of man, that is the worship of man. Look at this world today. We're putting on pedestals all these ministers and all these politicians. It's a set up for the Antichrist, because in the last days, we are going to worship man, and we're going to look to him for all the answers. I'm going to tell you right now, Sid, you see it. I see it. It's clear as day. I can't believe other people cannot see what's going on in the world. But we got to get back to something.
Sid Roth: And what is that?
Steve: And that is what we've got to do with this avalanche, the spiritual avalanche that could kill millions. We are responsible as leaders, as generals to destroy. And what I saw in the vision, I saw helicopters, I saw snowmobiles and I saw anti-tank weapons blowing up these mountains. And it was as clear as watching a television program. Snow was crumbling down. It was under control because these generals were blowing it up themselves before it blew up and came down, and killed people. I got on the phone, soaked already with tears. My phone was sticking and I talked to the Colorado Ski Patrol and I shared with them my vision. And he said, "Everything you saw, Mr. Hill, is exactly what we do. You saw the ski patrol in action. We're trying to save their lives". And he said, "I personally man an anti-tank weapon and my shells shoot five miles, seven, eight kilometers into the mountains to blow them up".
And I'm listening. And this just happened. This is not five, 10, 20 years ago. Then he said this and I close. He lifted his voice like an evangelist and he said, "Can I say something to you, Mr. Hill"? And I said, "Yes sir". And his voice began to crack like mine is cracking. He said, "Do you want to know why they die"? And I said, "Yes, why do they die"? He said, "Because they don't listen to me". He said, "They refused to listen to me. I tell them don't go up to that mountain, but the go anyway. They go on their snowmobiles. They go on their helicopters". And he said, "They're dropped off onto the mountains". And then he said, "An hour later, I'm digging their corpse out of the snow". And I told him, I said, "Thank you very much". And I said, "I do the same thing. I spend my life trying to save lives".
And I bought an avalanche probe, which is a long, long, long, long pole that you drive in the snow. It's the most wicked device I've ever owned in my life. It's to find dead bodies. It's to find dead bodies and hopefully find one that's got just an ounce of breath left, a backslider, spiritually speaking, a prodigal, spiritually speaking, of someone who's been covered by all this false teaching. And many of you that are watching this you know exactly what I'm talking about. You know what you're doing is wrong. You know what you're listening to is wrong. It's feel good teaching. I am warning you right now, if you are in a church that is allowing you to be free to do anything you want, run for your life. If you're not in a church that is preaching the whole Gospel, all the words in red, run for your life. If you've fallen away from the traditional teachings of your Christian life, get back. Get back to what you used to believe in when you were first a child of God.
Sid Roth: I've been very burdened over this. I didn't have a vision. But many godly men and women are burdened over, I'll call it what it is, what Steve did, it's false teaching that is flooding the airways, flooding Christianity. But I'm going to tell you something else. I'm going to turn Steve loose to pray for the same power that was on Jesus that rose, Messiah Jesus from the dead that rests on him, that's about ready to rest on you. Don't go away.
Sid Roth: I've been thinking about so many people are going through so many problems, and they look at God as their genie, as their servant. They have it absolutely backwards. Well my guest Steve Hill doesn't have it backwards. And let me tell you, something happened to him. I observed him before he developed cancer, and it was terminal. There's no chance of him surviving. He was preparing for his funeral, making arrangements with his wife. And God through a great miracle spared his life. But the compassion that he has now, he's exuding compassion. And I'll tell you, if I have one prayer for myself and if you have one prayer for yourself, that is to have the compassion of God for a dying society. In addition to that, boy did this guy have power. I watched him out at Brownsville and he prayed for someone, and they would go flying through the air. What people that have observed him now say the power is even stronger. We'll get to that.
Steve: Sid, I got to jump on that right there, because two weeks ago, a man came up to me and I was leaving the church, I was going home. He comes up to me and he stands taller than I am, handsome man, dressed to the max, dressed nicer than you are today, and that's hard to do, Brother. You need to run your own clothing line. But this guy, he goes, I said, "Who are you"? And he gave me his name. And I said, "What are you here for"? He said, "You're Steve Hill". I said, "Yeah". He goes, "I want what you have". And I said, "What do you mean"? He goes, "I just know who you are and I want what you have". And I have never done this before. I said, "Let me have your hand".
And he put his hand like that. And I took my hand I just rubbed it across. I've never done this. I've been ministering for 37 years. Went across like that. And when I got to the tip of his fingers, the power of God shot down my arm. You don't have to believe it. That doesn't bother me. Shot down my arm and when my fingers touched his fingertips, it was like a break-dancer. His hand went like this. His arm went like this. His shoulders, and then he went flying backwards, hit the tile. I thought he was going to break the tile or break his neck. And he just laid there staring up like what on God's green earth just happened to me. And I looked at him and I said, "Get him up, get him up, get him up, pick him up". And then I went like this, I rubbed his cheek. Never done that before. Just rubbed his cheek. Wham! Hit by the power of God. Do you want to know that was?
Sid Roth: I do know, but you tell me.
Steve: I don't know what was.
Sid Roth: Yeah, I do know what it was. It was the power of the Lord God.
Steve: You and I both know what I'm talking about. But I don't know what's going to happen with him. What on earth? Because he got like a double, triple, whatever you want to call it. I don't know.
Sid Roth: This anointing can even be transferred through the airwaves, like on a cell phone. Tell me about one.
Steve: Don't get me started on cell phones. We'll get people on cell phones. One man was in the Grand Canyon. I've been to the Grand Canyon. If you're from other parts of the world, it's big hole. It's seven miles deep. And so this man calls from the Grand Canyon and wants me to pray for him. I'm like 3000 miles away. And I said, "Where are you standing"? Because if he's on the edge I' don't want to pray for him, you know.
Sid Roth: Good thinking.
Steve: He said, I'm in a ranger station. So he's inside. And I've been to the bottom of the Grand Canyon. I knew exactly where he was. And I said, "Okay, I'm going to pray for you". I said, "Are you ready"? He goes, "Yeah". And I said, I went, "Fire! Fire! Power of God, touch him, hit him! Hello? Hello"? His wife came up to me two hours later. He was out, man. He was still out. And she said, "The power of God hit my husband. He's shaking under the power thousands of miles away". Why not? If Jesus is omnipresent, if you're in Siberia right now, he's in Siberia. Wherever you're watching this from, he's there with you.
Sid Roth: I want you to look in the camera and pray for the people watching right now to receive the power, same type of power that fellow on the cell phone received.
Steve: There's no doubt in my mind that you are about to receive. If you are hungry for things of God then God is hungry for you. If you're serious about Him, He's serious about you. And I want you to look at me right now, sir, ma'am, what do you want to see? Now if you want me to pray for you that you get a million dollars in the mail, I'm sorry, you're looking at the wrong person. But if you want to pray for the anointing, the power of God to heal the sick, to raise the dead, to see the power of God come down in our city, to see people touched by the power, in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, I pray God for the power of God to come down right now into that living room, into that house, into that home. Flow through that computer. Flow through that TV set. Flow through that apparatus right now. Touch, touch, touch. May the fire of the Holy Ghost envelop, envelop and touch this man, touch this woman and use them for your glory and honor in Jesus' name.
And don't you take a drop of God's glory. When He uses you, you give all the credit to the Lord. That's one of the secrets of my longevity. I see miracle after miracle, after miracle because I don't take one drop of His glory. It's all Jesus. And none of you, you're a vessel. Man, if it wasn't for God you couldn't heal a sick hummingbird. It's Jesus flowing through you. Right now there's somebody, let me tell you, right now there's somebody in a cloud. You were in a dark cloud and God is going to bring you out of that dark cloud. But once you get out, here's what the Lord is saying to you: Move, keep moving. The Lord is saying to you, I cannot steer a car that is not sitting still. You need to move forward in the things of God. Quit sitting still. Go after God. Worship the Lord. Read the Word, not for others, but for you.
