Sid Roth - People Get Healed When She Sings
Sid Roth: Hello. I'm Sid Roth, your investigative reporter. My guest, Vicki Jamison-Peterson is a woman, that when she sings, people have just a great desire to laugh, and whereas in the natural, we have found that there, wonderful things that happen when you laugh. In the supernatural, it's even better. People are instantly healed of, well you told me, cancer. Tell me about that.
Vicki Jamison-Peterson: Yes. It happened three years ago in Birmingham, Alabama. And you see, I have had a healing ministry. I have been singing healings for many years.
Sid Roth: I know, and as a matter of fact, I can't let this program finish without saying that several years ago, you laid hands on my wife, and my wife literally says she left her body and touched Heaven. And she always had a fear, even though she knew that she would go to Heaven someday, she had a fear of death. Well you know after she had that experience, she has zero fear of death.
Vicki Jamison-Peterson: Isn't that wonderful.
Sid Roth: As a matter of fact, she was trying, between you and me, she was trying to figure out how we both can get to Heaven together.
Vicki Jamison-Peterson: Together. People who love each other want to do that.
Sid Roth: But seriously.
Vicki Jamison-Peterson: All the sting was removed.
Sid Roth: No fear of death.
Vicki Jamison-Peterson: No fear. Isn't that, when we know and are sure where we're going, and we know the one who will take us there, then we understand there's no fear. But this woman who was healed three years ago, was healed through laughter and singing. I sing healings, have for years, but it goes back to four years before today when this began to occur. As I would sing healings, the laughter came, and we can talk about that in a moment. But this woman in the service was healed of cancer. She was distended. She says she was about the size of a seven-month pregnancy and I know her.
Sid Roth: Was this like a tumor that caused it?
Vicki Jamison-Peterson: Yes, yes. And it was in her uterus, and she had been doctors, and I knew that she needed to be healed. I had known her through the years. I said, "Come to the service". And she came and I began to sing healings, and I began to sing, cancer is healed. And when I did, the power of God came upon her and her skirt all started to fall off because the size began to diminish, and the tumor disappeared. And she came up and I said, "Come up to the front". And when she did, the glory and power of God was wonderful, upon her. And when I reached out to touch her, his presence just caused her to go back quite a distance and all the ushers who were with her, and they hit a plant and that all fell. She stayed on the platform, laughing. She laughed maybe for an hour to two hours, and she'd go "phew". It felt like fire to her. And laughed, and laughed. And she came to my services for one to two years. Now she's traveling around the world, taking the same laughter with healing.
Sid Roth: No cancer.
Vicki Jamison-Peterson: No cancer.
Sid Roth: None.
Vicki Jamison-Peterson: Absolutely totally healed.
Sid Roth: Was it an instant healing or gradual?
Vicki Jamison-Peterson: Yes, it was instant. It was instant like that.
Sid Roth: Is this, now I know for years, when you sing songs, you speak, actually you sing words.
Vicki Jamison-Peterson: Specific words and specific healings. People are healed.
Sid Roth: And when did this first start? I mean, I know you're a singer.
Vicki Jamison-Peterson: Twenty-six years ago, when I was called to minister, I didn't know what that meant. It was very unusual to me. And I, not being a theologian and not understanding any of that, I just wouldn't do, I wouldn't go in ministry. I wouldn't do it because I said to God, you know, I'm a woman. Of course, he knew that. I don't have any education and I don't have any doors, none of those things. And so he said, "Will you go where I want you to go, will you do what I want you to do and will you be what I want you to be"? And when I said yes, I was gradually restored. I was invited to speak for ladies luncheon and the ladies there, 600 of them in Dallas, Texas, had many of them prayed that I would live. And so I stood as their speaker.
Sid Roth: What was wrong with you?
Vicki Jamison-Peterson: Blood clots were hitting my lungs and I was surviving it, and having had surgery, very serious.
Sid Roth: That sounds pretty serious.
Vicki Jamison-Peterson: Yes it was. And so when I stood to speak, I said, "Don't blame God for what happened to me". And a cloud showed up, and I don't know if anyone else saw it, I was intrigued.
Sid Roth: Did you see this cloud?
Vicki Jamison-Peterson: Oh yes, I did. And then the next time, I said, "Don't blame God for what happened to me". Because people blame God for their sickness. He doesn't make us sick. He isn't schizophrenic. And so the cloud came down lower. And the third time I said, "Don't blame God for what happened to me". I was in the cloud. So then I said, "If you want to know Jesus, if you want to be healed, come to the front". And these women ran to the front, and they stood two, three and four deep. And I went to lay hands upon them. Never had done that, but that seemed natural. And I reached out to touch the first woman, and when I did, she fell back. And it was the power of God. I was amazed. And I extended my arm, and when I did, every person in the line that I pointed to fell down, too. It was just like corn wood, and then I fell on them. And we didn't have a script. I had never witnessed anything like this. I was still in this cloud of his presence. And my mother and another lady came, they picked me up, and they just directed through the room. And this was a chandeliered ballroom of the Hilton Hotel, and this was an elegant lunch and it turned into a brawl. And women were draped over the tables, they were under the tables, and they were laughing. And I, there would be up to a hundred people on the floor experiencing God's power. And the waitresses and waiters came out because they heard, this was noisy, and they would fall under the power of God. And you say, well what is the purpose? It's when something greater than you comes into your presence, something is going to give, and it's not going to be God.
Sid Roth: What happened to these women?
Vicki Jamison-Peterson: They were healed and they were refreshed, and they were amazed. And when I left the auditorium, everyone I passed fell, and it was, I thought I'm dangerous, I can't be let out of my room again. And when I went out in public, I thought, how can this be? But then I learned it was the discretion of God that it was, as he would will, but there would be little tiny spurts of laughter through these many years of ministry. But it was four years ago when the laughter became so obvious.
Sid Roth: Tell me what happened at that point.
Vicki Jamison-Peterson: At that point, I was praying, and I was looking to God to change situations in my life.
Sid Roth: By the way, whatever happened to the physical condition that you had, remember, when you first healed?
Vicki Jamison-Peterson: Healed of blood clots perfectly, absolutely, totally. And when I got in the plan of God, my health began to great, and it was great for many years. I was healed of cancer later, many years later, and that's still another story.
Sid Roth: Oh that's just incidental. I mean, there are people that are watching us right and they say, I want to grab hold of this type of healing. But tell me, about four years ago, what happened?
Vicki Jamison-Peterson: Four years ago, I was praying and I was fasting, two hours, three hours, four hours a day. Some days I would skip. And when I came from that extended period of time back to minister, you reminded of a story and I had forgotten that. But I was on a lady's retreat in the Pocono, in the mountains. It was an elegant time. Women were dressed beautifully and everything was in order. And I was speaking the final night at the banquet. And the night before when I spoke, I noticed I felt a little giddy, a little, this is not a nice thing, but I like it, light in my loafers. And I just felt just a little percolating humor. And this night is the banquet was being held I walked back behind the podium to present my speech and to minister to the sick. When I did, the power of God came upon me and I was knocked to the floor, where I lay laughing. I, chickens lay. I wasn't laying. I was rolling actually, if you really want to know the truth. I was laughing so hysterically that I couldn't get up. I had fallen and I couldn't get up.
Sid Roth: Doesn't this embarrass you?
Vicki Jamison-Peterson: No it felt so good. I couldn't get up anyway. So what is the deal? I mean, if I'm embarrassed, I'm embarrassed. When you're under the power of God and you experience God in that full dimension, everyone fades away. They're insignificant. You're not considering that.
Sid Roth: You're no longer a man pleaser.
Vicki Jamison-Peterson: No. So then my friend, who is married to a doctor also, I'm married to a psychiatrist. Can you imagine God's sense of humor that I'm married to a psychiatrist and this happens to me. It has stretched him, I can tell you. My friend is married to a physician and she was a speaker. She thought she had never seen me do this, and she thought she needed to help cover for my humiliation. She walked up to the podium and says, "Do any of you know, 'This is That'"? It's a song. Well they all laughed. And she said, "Do you know, 'This is That'"? And they all laughed even hard. And when she said it a third time, the power of God came upon her and hit her, and knocked her backwards. There was a wall, but we didn't know there was a door in the wall, and she fell out the door and disappeared. Didn't hurt her.
Sid Roth: I was going to ask you.
Vicki Jamison-Peterson: She wasn't injured. It was the same level floor. And I still couldn't get up. So the pastor's wife comes now, because all of our speakers are falling out. And she is going to bring order back to this meeting, and she falls in the floor. And the women laugh even more. And so I could observe everything going on, and I laughed as hard as the ladies laughed. Her husband came, too, he's the pastor, and he took of his coat, laying hands on ladies to be healed. And I, on the floor, I could see the ladies. They were flying through the air. No one was injured. That was the demonstration of great power coming from God. And you know, in the natural it would injure people. And many would say, well what is the purpose? Why would this be? Well we can look at Exodus. We can look into the Old Testament and see that when Moses went into the tent in Exodus 40, he could not stand, for the cloud of the glory of God. And so when we come into his presence and it is the fullness of his presence, the Proverbs tells us that, "A merry heart is food like a medicine". We also see in the psalms, "In his presence is fullness of joy". And so when we come into fullness of God's presence, there is a great fullness of joy.
Sid Roth: Well even in the natural realm, doctors are finding that when you see comedies, something happens in your body to help the body heal itself.
Vicki Jamison-Peterson: Yes. We were created to be self-healing. That is true. And I collect research and information on laughter therapy, because the world has learned and they are learning that so much laughter can produce a painkiller that is a hundred times more potent than morphine, and that when we laugh until we weep, there is an anti, there is a killer for bacteria in our tears. However, it only lasts for a limited amount of time.
Sid Roth: That's what I was going to ask you. What is the difference between this natural laughter and what you're talking about?
Vicki Jamison-Peterson: Well the natural laughter was created of God and it does a great work. And it certainly does cause the brain to do unusual jobs that it was created to do. And it does last for a period of time. Norman Cousins did research because of his own pain, and he discovered that if he would watch a film such as the Marx Brothers, that ten minutes of laughter would produce a certain amount of time of release from pain, but it was in a timeframe. But now this that we are encountering, where we see that God is involved so very dramatically and so dynamically, that when his presence comes in we will see healings such as this woman who was healed of cancer, who is today ministering.
Sid Roth: Vicki, I've got an idea.
Vicki Jamison-Peterson: What?
Sid Roth: I want Vicki to sing when we come right back. Get ready to laugh, to cry, to experience God and to be healed. We will return to It's Supernatural right after this.
Sid Roth: Hello. We're back. I know you could hardly wait because Vicki Jamison-Peterson, four years ago, walked in to another level with the Spirit of God. You were talking a bit about it. Your husband, who is a psychiatrist, was there. What happened?
Vicki Jamison-Peterson: Well I was in Manhattan in New York City and I wasó
Sid Roth: If you got to be anywhere, that's the place to be.
Vicki Jamison-Peterson: That's the place to be. I love Manhattan. And I was speaking for a conference, women's conference. There were several speakers. My husband, when he can, goes with me when he isn't practicing medicine, and he was with me on this trip. And I walked into the auditorium for the first afternoon speaker, she got up to speak, a dynamic woman of God, and when she did, the power of God came upon me in such a strong way, I fell on the floor. And my husband was standing there and I could not get up. I was laughing so hard and I was the only one in the auditorium laughing, to make it even more strange.
Sid Roth: I would say that the focus was on Vicki.
Vicki Jamison-Peterson: And I couldn't get up and it felt so good. You know this laughter of God, it is so beyond what we humans can experience. But you could imagine, my husband had never seen me behave like this. And so when the meeting was over, the speaker, my husband and I were in the limousine going back to the hotel, and I said to her, "Can you tell me what's happening to me"? I said, "For the last few meetings that I've been speaking in, I'm in the floor laughing". And I said, "This has never happened before and people are not going to invite to speak to come fall on the floor and laugh". And she said, "Oh dear," she said, "you're coming into a new level of anointing in God. You will be able to stand". My husband said, "I'm so relieved to hear that". He said, "I thought she had a brain tumor".
Sid Roth: Of course, you know he was kidding.
Vicki Jamison-Peterson: No, he was serious. No, he was as serious as he could be. And he said, "I was going to have a"...
Sid Roth: That's why you were falling.
Vicki Jamison-Peterson: "going to have a CAT scan of her brain. I thought she had a tumor in her brain". And I have to tell you, it stretched him, because he is a very logical, intellectual scholar and magnificent physician, and a great diagnostician of the brain. I mean, his specialty is the brain. And so to suddenly see his companion who has always been sensible, always logical. I mean, things were fun and unusual, but never far out. It has stretched him, but he is a changed man because of it.
Sid Roth: Now when you sing or speak, sometimes this laughter jumps off of you and goes on everyone?
Vicki Jamison-Peterson: Not everyone, no.
Sid Roth: Most people?
Vicki Jamison-Peterson: Many, most. That's why I enjoy going and staying in several services because I have discovered that those who are the most weary and need joy and laughter, the very most.
Sid Roth: They're the first.
Vicki Jamison-Peterson: They are the first. The most weary, the most ill.
Sid Roth: Tell me what's happening. Just give me a few things of what's happening to people when the spirit of God comes on them and they start laughing.
Vicki Jamison-Peterson: Yes, I have seen a lady in a church where I was for an extended meeting for ten months.
Sid Roth: That's extended.
Vicki Jamison-Peterson: That's extended. And so when you're ten months with people, you really do know them and know the validity of their story. It isn't just a little quick fix kind of a thing. But you see a sustained change in their lives. And the laughter seems to be a very great therapy of the Holy Spirit. This lady, after she had been in my services laughing for months, I'd be there two weeks and then would take a break and come back, she wrote a letter to me, and I had her stand and tell the church, she said, "I was one of the meanest women you have ever met in your life. People didn't dare cross me because I made their lives miserable". And she began to laugh in front of this audience. And she said, "People in my work cannot believe how I have changed". God had so rearranged her that she had softened and she was a joy to be around, and it was a witness. When she went to work people in her workplace would begin to laugh. The joy of the Lord would get off on them.
Sid Roth: Not just in a church, she would just go to work.
Vicki Jamison-Peterson: She was just a conduit from God. And I've seen that happen.
Sid Roth: You're a conduit and when you sing it's going to double your conduit for the laughing. But you're a conduit for physical healing when youó
Vicki Jamison-Peterson: Absolutely.
Sid Roth: Now when you sing specific words, are they just words, are they words that God is telling you? Where do these words come from?
Vicki Jamison-Peterson: Well it's a multi-faceted thing. It is from God. It is from his guidance within me. And when I first began I would sometime feel the pain in my body. And so I would sing out. I just learned that many years ago, singing, and I found out that David the psalmist sang.
Sid Roth: So as you sang about the pain in your body, other people were healed?
Vicki Jamison-Peterson: Yeah, and the pain would leave me.
Sid Roth: Leave you, but were other people healed?
Vicki Jamison-Peterson: They would be healed of that pain. That's the way I would know. But now I just know that I know. It's a knowing from God.
Sid Roth: Vicki, I'm going to get some people upset with me if you don't start singing.
Vicki Jamison-Peterson: Well let us do it.
Sid Roth: Okay.
Vicki Jamison-Peterson: Would you like to be healed? Would you like to be whole? Would you like to receive joy that you've never known. This is your day to receive joy and blessings from God. You're healed in your eyes right now. Cataracts dissolve. You're healed. You're healed in your throat right now. Goiters disappear. Your thyroid is restored. You're healed now, healed now by our Lord. Your shoulder is restored. You're healed in your arm. Your bones are mended now. Disease is gone. Your back is healed. Discs and vertebrae are restored now. You're healed now, you're healed now from the Lord. Kidneys are healed now. Kidneys are healed now. The liver is cleansed of disease. You're healed now, so healed now. The breast is healed. Tumors dissolve. You're whole. Cancer leaves you now. Your intestines are cleansed right now. Your colon is healed right now. Laughter comes upon you right now and your knees are restored. You didn't think He knew that one, did you? But they are whole. You thought He forgot? No, He didn't forget you. Your feet are healed, even your toe is healed. Insomnia is healed. Your neck is whole now. You can move your neck, try it, you can do it by His power. He's not only restoring, but He's recreating in this hour. You're healed in your gums right now. Oh yes, receding gums are healed. You had a problem with a tooth, just one, but He wants you to know how involved He is in your life. The abscess leaves, absolutely. Leaves you now, migraine headaches leave, totally. It's instant by His power, and you're healed of a skin disease. Check it. You will see that you are healed. A sports injury in the hip, totally healed. I promise you, you're healed if you'll just check yourself you'll see, by His power. Then arthritis bows. It bows as joy comes upon you right now. You see, it is His plan to make you every whit whole from the top of your head to the sole of your foot. Not only is He healing you, but He is restoring you. There is an injury that wouldn't heal, an incision. But now, you can check it out. It's healed by His power, healed by His glory, healed in this hour.
Sid Roth: Vicki, I feel like singing right now.
Vicki Jamison-Peterson: Sing with me.
Sid Roth: But I'm not a singer. But I will tell you, I heard about ears.
Vicki Jamison-Peterson: Did you?
Sid Roth: Ears are being opened right now.
Vicki Jamison-Peterson: Yes.
Sid Roth: And the prostate is being healed
Vicki Jamison-Peterson: Oh yes.
Sid Roth: It's almost as Vicki was singing, the windows of Heaven were opened up. And when the windows opened up, I'll tell you a secret. Once they open, whether we say the word, whether Vicki sings the word or not, it's yours. If you'll only believe, and there are people that need to know Jesus, you need to open your heart up to Jesus right now. Make Him your Lord. Repent and believe that He loves you. Believe in His love greater than anything else in the world. And remember, there is a love of God. There's nothing to compare.
