Sid Roth - See the Manifest Glory of God
Sid Roth: Hello. Sid Roth here. Welcome to my world where it's naturally supernatural. My guest was supernaturally taught how to play the piano and when he plays the piano the atmosphere of Heaven comes on the scene and people are healed, they're given supernatural peace, and sometimes very unique signs occur, amazing signs. For instance he was doing a segment for us at the School of the Supernatural yesterday and gold dust appeared all over his clothing. Would you like to hear some of this supernatural music? Sid Roth here with Joshua Mills. And Joshua, you are, and this is quite a heritage, you're a fifth generation Pentecostal.
Joshua Mills: I am.
Sid Roth: But you said, you didn't see many miracles.
Joshua Mills: Well you know, I grew up in a Pentecostal church and it was a really nice church, and I'm thankful for a loving family and all that kind of stuff. But the truth is we were Pentecostal by name, but much more conservative by practice. We believed in a lot of spirit-filled things. We believed healing, we believed in prophecy, we believed in those things. But it was very rare for us to actually go after them by faith and actually see them manifest in the Sunday service.
Sid Roth: But things changed.
Joshua Mills: They did.
Sid Roth: When you were 16, what happened?
Joshua Mills: When I was 16 years old, my parents took me to special church anniversary services, and when I walked in the church things were happening that I had never, ever seen anywhere in my life. People were manifesting. I now understand people were manifesting in the Holy Spirit, but I actually didn't really like what I was seeing. I thought it was weird, it was unusual. And I actually sat down.
Sid Roth: I don't know if anyone can see this, but you're beginning to get gold dust all over.
Joshua Mills: I can see. It's come on my arm now.
Sid Roth: All over.
Joshua Mills: These are some of things that happen when the Holy Spirit shows up.
Sid Roth: Now you behave yourself.
Joshua Mills: Yeah. This is going to be good. This is going to be good.
Sid Roth: I could, okay, we're back to, you're age 16, you're seeing all these things and you don't understand.
Joshua Mills: The Holy Spirit is showing up. I don't understand it. I sit down in the church. The next thing I know, the Holy Spirit comes upon me in a very personal way, literally catapults me out of my church. I end up on the floor, rolling and laughing hysterically like the loudest laughter you could ever think of. And I'm rolling on the floor.
Sid Roth: Was that the kind of person you were?
Joshua Mills: I was conservative. I mean, I was a good Christian boy. I was, you know, I sat down and did what I was told. I was just a nice, quiet, young boy. And the next thing I know I am loud and hysterical, and I'm laughing for one hour, two hours, for hours I'm laughing until the end of the church service, and I'm still glued to the floor.
Sid Roth: Glued to the floor?
Joshua Mills: I can't get up. I can't bring myself to get up, to stand up. And my parents were there and so my parents ended up taking me, putting me into the back of their car, and I laughed the whole way home. And it's amazing, when we got home, my parents put me in the basement because my bedroom was upstairs and they wanted to sleep. And so they put me downstairs, and I ended up literally laughing my way to sleep. The Bible says, "The joy of the Lord is your strength". And that's what God was doing. He was literally strengthening me and giving me something that I had never had before in my life. The Holy Spirit was becoming so real to me. It's like the lights came on and everything was different. The next morning, I had more of a love for God. I had a desire to spend time with God. It was no longer just a Bible story now. This was living, breathing, I mean God is real, Jesus is real, he's alive, he's the same yesterday, today and forever. And I got so excited about this reality that I just wanted to be with him.
Sid Roth: So what he's saying is he went from a professional Pentecostal to normal.
Joshua Mills: I was.
Sid Roth: Normal as defined the Bible.
Joshua Mills: Thank God.
Sid Roth: So then you have to understand, when he was a young kid, he had piano lessons, a few.
Joshua Mills: A few, yeah.
Sid Roth: What did the teacher say about your piano?
Joshua Mills: The teacher told my mother to stop wasting her money. She said, "Don't bring Joshua back. He will never, ever learn how to play piano". That's what she told my mother.
Sid Roth: But after this encounter with God, he had an insatiable desire to worship God. So he goes to the piano and what happens?
Joshua Mills: I end up sitting at the piano and the Holy Spirit begins to teach me. The Holy Spirit begins to train me. The Holy Spirit begins instructing me. The Bible says, "The Holy Spirit will teach you in all things". And that means all things.
Sid Roth: How many songs have you written?
Joshua Mills: Oh gosh. The last they officially counted, it was over 600 songs and that was, Sid, about ten years ago that that number had come up. So it's been thousands because every time I'm in the presence of God he's giving me new songs, and I'm writing new songs constantly. Anybody who's ever been in my meetings knows that generally in that meeting, we're going to have two or three brand new spontaneous songs that come down from Heaven in to the atmosphere.
Sid Roth: Speaking of atmosphere, when we come back, I'm going to have Joshua teach you how you can be in the atmosphere of Heaven 24/7 in your marriage, in your job, in your worship, in your finances. It is the most phenomenal thing because in his presence is fullness of joy, fullness. Be right back.
Sid Roth: You know, Joshua is just sitting on the set, and I saw happen before my eyes, the gold dust started materializing. But this gold dust, it's a biblical thing. Just give me a couple of passages.
Joshua Mills: The Bible says that, "The silver and the gold is mine, says the Lord". That's in Haggai. So it all belongs to God. Another thing is, you know, in the Old Testament, Solomon was given instruction to build the Temple using overlaying with gold, ornamenting with gold. And we know that in this day, it's not, the Temple of God is not a temple that's made by the hands of man, but we are the Temple of the Holy Ghost. We are the Temple of God. And I believe that God is choosing to pour out his Glory and assign his Glory upon his people, just like Acts 2 says, "In the last days I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh". He's choosing to pour out his Glory on us.
Sid Roth: Yeah, but in an elevator? Tell me about that.
Joshua Mills: Well you know, quite a few years ago I was ministering in Toronto and I was getting ready for the meeting, and I went, I was going to go downstairs. And when I got to the elevator, the door opened. I didn't have any gold on me. I mean, just looked plain as day, whatever. I go to walk in the elevator. As soon as I walked in that elevator it was like some kind of supernatural dump truck from Heaven opened up over my head and literally the gold of Heaven poured from the top of my head all the way right down to my feet, and I was covered in gold, not just a few specks, like millions. It wouldn't be an exaggeration to say millions because I looked like I was painted with gold.
Sid Roth: I was in that elevator, but I have seen you like that.
Joshua Mills: Right.
Sid Roth: It is a sign and a wonder.
Joshua Mills: It happens on occasions, just God's Glory. And there was three people standing on that elevator, and they were watching me. I mean, they literally saw me come on the elevator, no gold. The next thing they know, I'm covered with gold. They don't know what's happening, but they start freaking out, and they're shouting and screaming, making all these sounds. And I'm standing there like thinking, what am I going to say. And the next thing I know, the elevator door closes behind me and I realize these people are on for the ride whether they like it or not. And you know, God has a way of setting people up and getting them into a place of encountering his Glory and that's what he did. And in a moment, God spoke to me and gave me the words to say. I said, "This is a miracle from God because Jesus loves you". And that's all I had to say. I didn't realize, later on I found out that there was someone in downtown Toronto that was telling, had been telling them that afternoon the Gospel message and trying to preach the Gospel to them, and they just continued to walk. But the Bible says in Mark 16, Verse 20, "Signs will come from the word that's been preached". And you know what, they walked right onto that elevator into that place where God was about to manifest a sign to confirm his Word, and when that sign came, and I said, "This is a miracle from God because Jesus loves you", tears began to well up in the one lady's eyes, and all three of them ended up giving their hearts to Jesus as Lord and Savior by the time we got to the lobby of that hotel. It was that easy. It was simple.
Sid Roth: You know, this gift that Joshua has, when he plays the piano, I've been listening to it lately, it brings such supernatural peace. Tell me about the woman in the hospital who started listening to your music. She was in a coma, I believe.
Joshua Mills: Well you know what happened, was she ended up, they found out, she didn't realize it, she had a tumor on the back of her head. And they took her to the hospital, they found the tumor. They thought this is going to be a routine surgery, no problem. They went to take the tumor out and the next thing they knew, they cut an artery and she started bleeding. All of a sudden, the surgery, instead of being simple, it got very complicated and one thing led to the next, she ended up in a coma. They had to remove a portion of her skull. They ended up putting it in her stomach. She ended up on life support. They called her sister, said, come in because it was a very serious situation. And I thank God that the one sister had been in my meetings and actually had one of my CDs, and she brought it up with her to the hospital. And when all hope was gone and the doctors wanted to take her off life support, the sister began playing this CD all night to her in her ears, and just over and over, and over, just soaking within the atmosphere of the Glory. And Sid, the next day when the doctor came in, this was, this lady's name was Mary Jo, and she was able to move her pinky. By that night she was beginning to walk. The doctors said, even if she came to, that most likely she would be disabled her entire life, that she wouldn't be able to walk she wouldn't be able to talk properly, that she wouldn't be able to move. The second day, she was moving around the hospital room so much that they had to put her in what's called a butterfly bed because they didn't want her to get out. They needed to contain her for the healing process. And it's amazing. God did this supernatural miracle with her by her being in the right atmosphere of Glory, by just soaking in the atmosphere of Heaven, Heaven literally was released onto her into her physical body. It's awesome.
Sid Roth: Tell me a few ideas, like you mentioned one right now to have the atmosphere of Heaven.
Joshua Mills: Right.
Sid Roth: You told me in your house you have speakers in every room and you're playing music such as yours and other people. What difference is it making?
Joshua Mills: You know what, it cost a lot of money for those speakers in my home, but the right atmosphere is priceless. And what the right atmosphere creates, money can't even buy. And so we ended up outfitting our house with these speakers that we could just fill the home with the sounds of praise, which changes the atmosphere, and then worship, which sustains the realm. And day in and day out, we have this atmosphere just releasing the Glory of God within our home. We just had a baby two weeks and so I'm really excited about that. Her name is Legacy.
Sid Roth: That's a great name.
Joshua Mills: It is an awesome name.
Sid Roth: Was your wife pregnant, the whole time that she was, your wife, she was hearing that worship music.
Joshua Mills: She was. We kept them incubated, if you will, within the atmosphere of Glory. And when Legacy was born, she was born so healthy and beautiful, and we actually played worship music even in the hospital. And my wife was able to give a pain-free, natural, I believe supernatural childbirth in the Glory because of the atmosphere of Heaven being present.
Sid Roth: How about your marriage? How does the atmosphere of Heaven affect your marriage?
Joshua Mills: The Glory of Heaven infiltrates our marriage with the atmosphere of unity. It brings the atmosphere of healing. It brings the atmosphere of reconciliation. It releases the atmosphere of peace within our home. It's amazing what the Glory of God does. It even comes to give creative ideas and solutions.
Sid Roth: I tell you what. You businessman that's worried about whether you're going to continue getting money in your job, you businessman that has a problem that you can't figure out how to solve, do you realize you student that's doing a special term paper, how would you like an idea from Heaven for your term paper. When we come back, I'm going to have Joshua tell you of some amazing things that have happened to people by just being in the atmosphere of Heaven. I want to find out a few more ways of getting in that atmosphere. We'll be right back.
Sid Roth: I tell you what, I need a miracle. This atmosphere of Heaven affects everything in your life, everything. If you can operate in that atmosphere, for instance, tell me about how the atmosphere Heaven affects ideas.
Joshua Mills: We were in Singapore several years ago and I saw God releasing packages upon people, giving gifts. And they were coming down in just little tiny presents upon people. And in that atmosphere I asked people to lift up their hands and just receive what God was doing. Well there was a businessman from California who owned a bakery and he began to receive these gifts from Heaven. And as he was receiving them, God began to give him a download, literally a blueprint for the plan that he needed to follow in his business in order to do a gourmet line of pastries, gave him the whole detail how to roll it how, how to make it functional, and God blessed it. And I ended up getting pastries on my doorstop for quite a while after that because God blessed him such a wonderful way.
Sid Roth: But it is amazing when you do things God's way how you prosper. For instance, did you know you could be in the atmosphere of Heaven for evangelism. Joshua and I both had good friends that are in Heaven now, the happy Hunters. And I never knew this, but they had a visitation from an angel telling people.
Joshua Mills: Right.
Sid Roth: To teach people the simplest, easy way, easiest way, I personally had ever seen for evangelism. Tell me what this angel instructed them.
Joshua Mills: This angel came to Francis as she was sitting in a restaurant, and said, "Would you like a new tool for sewing"? And of course, Francis was very excited to receive it. At that time she didn't realize it was an angel. She thought it was just a man in the restaurant. So she said, "Yes, I'd like it". And he said, "Okay, I'll tell you how to do it". And so he instructed her. And then, and she said, "Wow, that's amazing. I never heard anything like that". And he said, "Let me do it. I'll show you how this works". And she said, "No, no, no, let me do it because you've told me how to do it".
Sid Roth: That sounds like Francis.
Joshua Mills: It was Francis. I mean, she was just a go-getter. And the waitress came to the table, and Francis asked the waitress and said, "Did you realize that there's only two kinds of waitresses that work at this restaurant, those who are saved and those who are about to be. Which one are you"? And the next thing Francis knew this waitress was crying, tears just coming out of her eyes, tears streaming down her eyes. She said, "I need to be saved. I'm about to be saved". And when she said that, Francis just led her in the sinner's prayer, and she accepted the Lord. And Francis said that she had to back behind the scenes for at least ten minutes to kind of get herself together before she could even come back out again, because God had done such a transforming work in her life.
Sid Roth: This is the difference between life and death. This is the difference between living and just living the way you are, living in the oxygen of Heaven. If you like things the way they are, then don't say this prayer. But you know, a very wise man said, if you keep doing the same things, the same way and expect different results, you're meshuga, you're crazy. Say this prayer with me: Dear God, please forgive me of all of my sins. I'm so sorry. I believe the blood of Jesus washes away my sins and I'm clean. And now that I'm clean I make Jesus my Messiah and Lord. Amen. Joshua, get to the piano right now and I want you to play supernatural music. And that you that said that prayer, I want you to know what God says: Though your sins be a scarlet they're as white as snow and you are righteous. And get ready for the simple supernatural through Joshua's music.
