Sid Roth - Supernatural Peace
Sid Roth: Hello. I'm Sid Roth. Welcome to my world where it's naturally supernatural. Now in the natural realm, we deal with specialists. Someone has a heart problem, they go to a cardiologist. Well in the supernatural there are specialists. Most people don't realize this, but there are. For instance, there are certain people that operate in gifts of healings that if you have a tumor they pray for that to go. If you have a friend, that if you're deaf, almost everyone he prays for gets their hearing back.
Well in the psalmist and the singing, the same is true. There are specialists. It's as if when you're turning on the radio, you can go to one type of station or another type of station in the natural. It's called the frequency. Well my guest has got a frequency for relieving stress and transmitting supernatural peace. It's like her voice is at that frequency. And you'll see what I know, because I've been listening to her worship, stress can't stand in the presence of that frequency. You know, when someone has an extraordinary supernatural gift, many times there's a price to pay. And I'm thinking of Julie, when you and your husband moved to a little farm area, you were going through a lot of challenges. What was going on in your life?
Julie: Well we had three small children and I was home schooling them, and my husband was in the process of kind of reinventing himself and his career. And we decided to move out to the country and renovate this little farmhouse. And so we were living in it while we were renovating it. There were financial difficulties, and we were basically living on a small farm where we had lots of animals to take care of that, and all that.
Sid Roth: So would it be kind to say your name was Julie Stress True? Was that true?
Julie: Well there was definitely a lot of burdens and weights at that time. It just was kind of a difficult time of our lives.
Sid Roth: Now why did you have your piano in your barn?
Julie: Well we had scaffolding in our front room. We didn't have a place for it, and that's just where it ended up so that I could play it.
Sid Roth: Okay. You got this difficult life, I mean, a mother, a wife. You're away from everything. You had financial worries. And you slip out to the barn at night, except for one thing. How cold was it?
Julie: Well lots of times it was very cold. Sometimes I was sitting in my winter coat while I was playing the piano.
Sid Roth: Why would you do that? I mean, why would you go out in that freezing cold?
Julie: Well my desperation led me to pursue a relationship with God and also just wanting to get to know Him better, and also just learning to lose myself in worship. And when I would do that, I mean, He's the one that has all the answers, you know. And I would get revelation in that time.
Sid Roth: As I understand it, you would ask questions and you would sing. Would you sing the questions?
Julie: Yes. Sometimes I would sing questions to God while I was playing and singing and He would answer me back real time while I was singing to Him, just in a flow.
Sid Roth: Well tell me about the song, "O My Soul".
Julie: Well "O My Soul" is based on Psalm 62. It was a song that, it's learning to speak to your soul and say, find rest in God alone. And that was just a real comfort to me then.
Sid Roth: Julie, would you play that song for me. Would you go to the piano right now.
Sid Roth: I promise it won't be freezing like it was in the barn. Now I love this song because Julie is speaking to her soul, and King David spoke to his soul. In the 103rd Psalm, King David said, "Bless the Lord, o my soul". It's almost like a commandment: "Bless the Lord, o my soul and forget not all His benefits". You see, sometimes your soul can forget the benefits that God has for you because He's forgiven all of my sins. It's so wonderful. He's healed all of my diseases, all. Someone's neck has just been healed. Julie True.
Julie: "You are my love, my life, my longing heart fulfilled. You are my quiet place where all is safe and still. You are my gentle Father and my loving Lord You are my savior and my king forever more. And I will not fear the storms of life, but I'll ride upon the waves 'Cause you are my rock, the sure foundation of my faith. O my soul, o my soul, find rest in God alone. O my soul, O my soul, find rest in God alone Find rest in God alone".
Sid Roth: Julie, what is your purpose?
Julie: Well God told, I asked Him, what is my purpose in music and in worship, and He said, to infiltrate the earth with sounds of healing, which to me means going behind enemy lines. He recently was just showing me that it was kind of more clarification about that, that it's going to places you wouldn't ordinarily think of where music would go. And He said that it would actually, that my music actually could change the cellular structure of sickness and disease, and that it could actually help reshape the brains of people who had been afflicted with trauma. And so He's not called me to be like a praise and worship leader. He didn't say songs of praise, or whatever. He said sounds of healing.
Sid Roth: Now when these sounds go out some amazing things are going on. Tell me about that woman that had the child where what happened with the chin and with the woman. Tell me about that.
Julie: Oh yeah. A lady wrote me and said that she keeps children in her home, and that she had been playing my music for two years, two hours a day, when she would put the children to sleep. And she said that they would just instantly be able to rest. And one little girl would get dreams of God on a regular basis. And this other child had half a chin. She was born with half a chin, and she said that she had possible learning disabilities. And after the two years of doing this, she said this child's chin grew out normal, and that she was one of the smartest children there.
Sid Roth: Now that's my kind of worship. How about you? Julie, you love what is called spontaneous music. What is that?
Julie: It's where there's no agenda and like you just sing from your heart to God. You sing what the Spirit is doing in the atmosphere at that moment, and there's no framework for it. There's no boundaries.
Sid Roth: But isn't it easier to do a rehearsed song out of a hymnal.
Julie: Not for me it's not. It is very challenging now. I mean, I occasionally will sing a song, just a normal song that comes up in my spirit during worship. For the most part it's like buying a greeting card that doesn't say what you want it to say from your heart. And so I love to be able to sing what's in my heart to God.
Sid Roth: Okay. I want you to sing right now, "Healing in My Presence". Do you realize in the presence of the Lord all things are possible. All is pretty inclusive. Did you hear what I just said? All things are possible in His presence.
Julie: "There's healing in your presence. There's healing in your presence. There's healing in your presence, oh Jesus. There's healing in your presence. There's healing in your presence. There's healing in your presence, oh Jesus. There's healing in your name. There's healing in your name. There's healing in your name, oh Jesus. There's healing in your name. There's healing in your name. There's healing in your name, oh Jesus".
Sid Roth: I don't know what's going on with you, but I can tell you the presence of God is just penetrating me when Julie sings. It's almost like in the invisible world your music is going into people. Your words are going into people. You told me, in the barn years you learned to lose yourself in the Spirit. What is that? What does that mean to you, lose yourself in the Spirit? What goes on?
Julie: Well as soon as I sit down at the keyboard and begin to sing, it's like I enter another realm and everything else in the world that I'm worried about just falls away. And I love that place. It's like there's no place like being in God's presence. It's peace. It's rest. It's freedom.
Sid Roth: Doesn't it amaze you that you get all of these reports in of what's going with people, and all you're doing is letting them know what you do when you lose yourself in His presence.
Julie: Yeah, I know. It is incredible.
Sid Roth: Tell me about one person's marriage that was healed.
Julie: Well there was a couple that they had, there had been betrayal on both parts. And the husband decided to start soaking, and he just played my music day and night. And he said that it just softened his heart, and he was able to forgive, and ultimately there was reconciliation. But I think that's a lot of what soaking does. It just, it soaks off all of the hard places on your heart when you soak in the presence of God, and you know, you go into a different realm that is outside of what your mind might tell you to do, and it gives the Spirit of God time to work.
Sid Roth: Tell me briefly about that salesman.
Julie: Oh yeah. That was cool.
Sid Roth: This music takes care of every problem, it seems. Tell me about it.
Julie: Yeah. This lady was telling about her husband who had taken a part time sales job, and he was really uncomfortable and intimidated by what he was asked to do. And so he started playing my music while he went out on sales calls, and started having incredible sales. He ultimately was hired full time, and he became the top salesperson in their business. And when people would ask him, what's your secret, he would say, "I played Julie True's music". And they were like, who? And so it was pretty amazing.
Sid Roth: Your heart is to go deeper into God's love. Is that really what you're goal is?
Julie: Yeah, because I feel like the core, the thing, the anchor to our whole soul is knowing that we're loved by God. And if we don't spend time with Him we don't know how much he loves us. And the more that you get to know Him and understand how much He loves you, the more that you want to worship Him, and the more time you want to spend with Him. And so, I love that.
Sid Roth: Well I want you to lose yourself in the spirit right now. And I want you to hear Julie True, "Where the Waters Flow". And my Bible says, in Ezekiel, "Wherever the waters flow there's healing".
Julie: "I want to go deeper, Lord into your love tonight. I want to go deeper, Father, into your love tonight. I want to go deeper, Father, into your love tonight. I want to go down to where the waters flow, go to where the waters flow. I want to go deeper, deeper, deeper where the waters flow, where the water seeps into every crack and crevice of my heart. I want to go deeper. I want to go deeper, Lord, into the heart of love, my Father's love for me. I want to live out of your love for me. Deeper, Lord, deeper Lord, deeper Lord. Oh let the water rise, let the water rise. Let the river rise up in thee".
