Sid Roth - How You Can Hear God Like Never Before
- Buy this sermon
Sid Roth: Hello. Sid Roth here. Welcome to my world where it's naturally supernatural. You know, most of us, we have this vision of God speaking to us with an audible voice like the Ten Commandments, and we can hear that booming voice. Well my guests say that we all should hear from God, but there are unexpected ways, it's like we're on AM and God's on FM, and but it's happening all around us. Like for instance, do you ever see a pattern of numbers, the same number over and over, and over? Do you hear the same name? Do you hear a scripture? Did you see an event that's not supposed to be, but it was there? That could be God speaking to you. And do you know what else? Once you become aware of this you're going to open up your hearing God like never before.
Sid Roth: A couple of years ago you came to the United States, both of you, to do a show for us, and I invited both of you to be at our prayer meeting. And Holy Spirit picked one particular person out, it happened to be a manager in our office, and you started by asking a question: Do you have any children? She said, "Yes, I have one". And then you said, "But I see another child". And she turned a color. Let me tell you why. Because it's not that she was ashamed that she was having a child, it was because she hadn't told anyone, especially her boss. She wanted her to be the first, but you were the first.
Adam Beale: Yes, I put my foot in it.
Sid Roth: Now, I asked you at dinner last night about how you know these things and you told me there's an angel that accompanies you, and sometimes he like leans on your shoulder. Explain that. What does that mean?
Adam Beale: That's right. When I'm ministering at the pulpit, it can even happen when I'm having dinner as well, an angel leans on me, and what happens is that he leans on me and I can get pictures and images, moving pictures sometimes. I could spell out details about someone's life, about their condition, their sickness, even their child, perhaps even the child's name and the condition. And what happens is faith just crashes into the meeting and pretty much God releases the miraculous.
Sid Roth: Tell me about that. So that's you. That's good. You're a prophet. You're, the Bible says there's fivefold ministers and you are a prophet. But what about me? What about you, just average people know our destiny, know our purpose, our function, our calling, what we're supposed to do?
Adam Beale: I believe everybody can have it if you're hungry enough. We can all be prophetic and hear from God. But for me, God didn't just wave a wand and I had this. I had to carve it out. There's one thing to have the grace of God over your life and that's free, but to fulfill the destiny can come with a price, and just got to be hungry and passionate to fulfill the destiny of God, and if you ask, you receive.
Sid Roth: Adrian, you have opened up my world and I want you to open the world of those that are watching. Tell me some of the ways God speaks to us, and he doesn't speak to us, he's speaking to us all the time, and once the light bulb goes on you're going to know. Tell me some of the ways.
Adrian Beale: Before I tell you some of the ways, Sid, I believe that we're all prophetic. We may not all be fivefold like Adam, but we all have a prophetic edge, otherwise we wouldn't be able to enter the Kingdom, because it's through revelation that we enter the Kingdom. But God speaks to us every day through numbers and sometimes those numbers may repeat themselves through names that we may see on a sign, on a bus or a truck, through a song that might bubble up within us, or through a line that's coming as someone is speaking the news out. You know, there are so many ways. It might be a movie title or it might be a photograph in front of you, or a magazine that you're reading, an article might jump out at you. There are so many words that God can speak. It may be a plant in your garden or a bird that comes and lands on that tree, but it does something that's unusual, and you go, well that was unusual, it got my attention. What could God be speaking in that situation?
Sid Roth: But for most of us it, it's like we're on AM and the sign God is giving us is on FM, and we just, I think that if we're just aware of this it's going to make a profound difference.
Adrian Beale: I believe that's true. I believe that is true.
Sid Roth: This is so unusual. It would attract your attention. Tell me about, on the Russian beaches, there were thousands of giant snowballs. Some of them, I mean, they went from the size of a tennis ball to three feet in diameter. It covered 11 miles of beach. Now, there you go. That's another, this never happened there before. I guess that's one way God can get our attention when we see something that's never happened before.
Adrian Beale: Exactly. And that's what drew my attention, Sid. As soon as I saw that at that moment, that is so unusual, that has be the voice of God, and particularly the time when it took place. It was the day after the United States Presidential Election. And so we understand from Scripture, Adam and I, that a ball is a projectile, and as a projectile, it's something you can throw and you can catch. It's a picture of words and a snowball can be code words. And so a beach is an interface. We believe that God is speaking through this incidence and saying we need to pray. It's a warning that cold words don't take place or cross over between America and Russia.
Sid Roth: I have seen the number of, in particular, you talk about seeing the same numbers reoccur. Since I've been a believer, I have seen the number "777". Even on my Israeli passport it says "777". When we come back, I want you guys to tell me what that means. Be right back.
Sid Roth: Adrian, you touched on it a little bit in the first segment. Tell me about why we should pay attention to numbers and names, and things like that.
Adrian Beale: Sid, I believe that encoded in those numbers is a key that God wants us to open. You know, it's just like you said before, when a number repeats itself and you see it all over the place, particularly in those situations, because the Bible says "By the mouth of two or three witnesses let every word be established".
Sid Roth: And you talked about even names that keep coming up. Explain that.
Adrian Beale: Names are so important. They're not just a label on a person. And normally they call the root of the name or the etymology of the name has some significance in a person's life. And so often God will speak to you through street names, company names, trucking names, and so on. And so when those things occur, I like to dabble and go deeper to find out what the root of that name means so it can become more powerful in what God is saying to us.
Sid Roth: And Adam, I mean, since I've been a baby believer all these years, every time I look around I'll see a license, and I'm not looking for it, it just happens, 777, sometimes four sevens, but usually three sevens. And even on my Israeli passport, I couldn't believe it, I opened it up, it said "777". I'm glad you did this book with symbols. If I had your book I'd just look it up, but I don't have it yet. What would you say God is trying to tell me.
Adam Beale: It can mean, for you personally, it could mean that you're coming into a greater level of heavenly counsel of wisdom, so, that's what 777 can mean. But I do also believe, and recently I had a dream of the spirit of Elijah. I believe that God is calling you into that realm, Sid, where there is that spirit of Elijah. You're going to be a part of that where it's going to prepare the platform for the Second Coming.
Sid Roth: You know Adam, there are even small things that are signs from God. Tell me the story about the ladybug.
Adam Beale: There was this unusual sign of this ladybug walking up and down my left thigh. I'm driving along and I was pretty exhausted. In Australia there's a saying, "Like a stung mullet". So the Lord said to me, "What do you see"? And I'm looking at this ladybug, and ladybugs actually preserve fruit. They protect the fruit from aphids. And pretty much what this was, the Lord was sending me a sign that he is strengthening me with an angel. I had this revelation that God was sending me an angel. See, on the left thigh, it means, symbolically, it means physical strength. The right thigh means spiritual strength. I had to just pray in the Holy Ghost and call in. See prayer is actually prophetic and I had to pull it in from the unseen world and agree, and he sent his angels, and strengthen me. All of a sudden, I felt completely charged. I felt like the Energizer bunny. I felt completely full of energy ready for the next meeting, because I had to go to the next meeting as soon as I came home.
Sid Roth: Now, were you asking for that or did it just happen?
Adam Beale: It just came from left field. It was like, it was an unusual incident. And that's how we can discern these things. It's something that you, it's not something that's common. It's something that's unusual that happens, and you go, I haven't seen that for years, or it might be a rare occurring thing, and you go, that's too much of a coincidence.
Sid Roth: Well speaking of things that are kind of out of the ordinary, even God will even use sounds on a cell phone. Adrian, explain.
Adrian Beale: I was traveling to minister in two churches, one morning, very early start, 5:00 in the morning, traveling in the car. And I heard the sound that my phone, the alert that my phone makes when it gets a text. I looked into my phone and there was no text there, so I knew instinctively that perhaps God was going to speak to me. At that point in time, playing on the MP3 or the iPod in the car, playing in the car was the testimony of Smith Wigglesworth. And what it revealed was that Smith Wigglesworth had once backslidden and that he used to tease his wife Polly when she came home from her meetings, and that was something that I never heard before. It was a revelation to me. I Tweet, because I had a phone call earlier that week from the pastor of the second church I was speaking in, and she told me that her son-in-law hadn't been to church for six months, and in some sense he was backslidden. And so I went, ah, I think God is asking me to make reference to this story of Smith Wigglesworth that I shared at the second church. And as I shared, I wove Smith Wigglesworth's testimony to what I shared in the second church.
Sid Roth: That takes boldness to do that.
Adrian Beale: Exactly right. Adam describes it like you're walking the plank and suddenly you get to the end of the plank, and then suddenly Jesus comes and does what he does. And so as I shared, I closed the meeting with rounding out. I said, "Anybody that what I shared, if you got to come forward I'd love to pray with you". And there would have been at least a dozen people that came forward. I was expecting the pastor's son-in-law to be the one who would respond. And so when the first person was a woman, quite a tall woman with long gray hair, I was shocked when she said, "I'm the one". So I said to her, "You're the one what"? She said, "I'm the one who wants to rededicate my life to the Lord. Let me tell you a story. I was nun defrocked by my order and I want to rededicate my life to the Lord". The next person I came to was a lady with all different colors in her hair: purple, green, yellow, red, and so on. She said, "I've just come out of a lesbian relationship. I want to dedicate my life to the Lord". And as I went down the line through to the pastor's son-in-law, each person was rededicating their lives to the Lord.
Sid Roth: Aren't you glad you took that risk?
Adrian Beale: Oh I'm so glad I took that risk and incorporated what I felt what God was saying into my message. Incredible what God did that night.
Sid Roth: You know, when we come back, all of us have had bad dreams. Some of us think, well it was pizza. But some is from God. So what do you do with a bad, I mean a bad, I had one, a bad dream? We'll be right back.
Sid Roth: Okay, Adrian, I had one awful dream and I don't want to empower it by even talking about it on the air. But I believe it was from God. What do I do with it?
Adrian Beale: What we need to realize is that as believers, Jesus has ascended and he's raised us up to be ascended as well. We've seen it in heavenly places, which means that we have authority. And when we see a negative, we can speak of positive into being. So if we see death in a situation, if we see sickness or if we see a family breakup, we have the authority through receiving that revelation to speak the opposite into being, to speak life.
Sid Roth: All right. Let's make something up. An elderly woman sees her son and daughter-in-law in a dream splitting up, getting a divorce. What should she do?
Adrian Beale: She should speak about the unity of the marriage and she should bind anything that's causing distraction or division between the two of them.
Adam Beale: Can I say that it's a blessing for God to give us the heads up, a warning. So we get a warning. A nightmare can be a warning. It all depends what we're focusing on. But this is different with you, Sid, where it's a warning. You shared the dream with us and they're blessings because it gives us, God gives us a heads up like the Magi in the Book of Matthew when the Lord gave them a warning and a dream to go back to Herod.
Sid Roth: What I'm hearing you say, Adam, that it's when you're a believer, in other words, even if the devil is up to something, you can stop him in your tracks.
Adam Beale: Absolutely.
Sid Roth: And that wasn't a bad dream, that was a good dream. I mean, you're going to give the devil a nervous breakdown.
Adam Beale: Amen.
Sid Roth: Adrian, you had something happen in real life. You thought you were going to die.
Adrian Beale: I did.
Sid Roth: Tell me about that.
Adrian Beale: You know, I was getting chest pains. I could hear the pulse of my blood going through my head as I laid my head on the pillow. I used to stay up studying in the Word to try to get focused and to bring my focus back on the Lord. What I did is I went into the bush. I took, I was fasting at the time. I would take a chair out into the Australian bush, my Bible and a notepad, and I was seeking God about breaking this thing. But I was also seeking God about a ministry tour that I was about to go under, go on. And so, I was reading the Bible and the Word jumped out at me. It says, "He who finds his life will lose it and he who loses his life will find it for my sake". The last part of that jumped out at me, and I went, God, even if I lose my life, I'm going to find it in you. And I don't care if I die. I'm going to hand my life out to you preaching the Gospel. That very moment, in the sky above me..
Sid Roth: Excuse me. You just game us another clue. As you're just reading your Bible that could be a sign of God speaking to you. That's what you're telling me.
Adam Beale: Yes. But at that very moment as I made that declaration and that decision in my heart, in the sky above me the cloud formations were abnormal that day. I saw a black cloud in the middle of my vista and it was in the shape of a dragon. And as I looked up, I went, well that is a dragon, and I went, is this any coincidence? Maybe it's not. And I started to rebuke this cloud. Nobody else around me. I'm miles away from anybody. And so I started to rebuke, and I started to get louder and louder. And it was almost like the other clouds were morphing and changing as this cloud stood there in defiance of what I was saying. But I stood my ground and I went, "In the name of Jesus, I rebuke you. The blood of Christ rebukes you, and so on. And it did eventually break up, and in its place a man, as God as my witness, a man on a cross, a cloud shaped as a man on a cross came into its place. God witnessed through the shape of those clouds with me, that day, and the decision that I made.
Sid Roth: Okay, but in the meantime, you're dying from a heart condition. What happened?
Adrian Beale: Things got better. My blood pressure went down, the whole thing abated and I went on tour, and we came into America at that time.
Adam Beale: It was a miracle.
Sid Roth: So you're saying to me, when the scripture jumped out at you and you saw something that you knew was a story in a cloud, it triggered a healing in you.
Adrian Beale: It did. And you know, I've been reluctant to tell it in churches because I believe that most people would think I'm coo-coo, but really that's what took place. Adam will verify. I'm probably the most logical person in this room.
Adam Beale: He's very conservative.
Adrian Beale: Very conservative, very cerebral-based, and that's what took place that day.
Sid Roth: Adam, there was a shift in the Spirit just a few minutes ago. You're a seer. What's going on?
Adam Beale: I actually do sense angels here right now. When you start talking about Yeshua and start talking about the One New Man, and you start talking about angels, it does actually, even testimonies, it does open a realm. It opens a realm.
Sid Roth: Even the atmosphere changed.
Adam Beale: Yes. It opens up a realm and I can see there's a lot more beings in this room than there is in the physical.
Sid Roth: So, would both of you pray right now.
Adam Beale: Heavenly Father, we just decree right now whoever is watching this, whoever is the audience out there, Lord, we thank you that the eyes of understanding are opening up. We thank you that the spiritual senses are opening and we prophesy in Jesus's name you giving the spirit of wisdom and revelation, spirit of wisdom and revelatory knowledge, and the understanding for them to discern what the Spirit is saying, discern the mysteries of Heaven. As they become intimate, Lord, with you, we thank you for revealing the mysteries of the Kingdom in Jesus's name.
Adrian Beale: Father, I thank you that for those that are being sensitized to the things of the Spirit right now, I pray that you would indeed open the eyes of their understanding, Lord, and that you would give them wisdom what to do with that. Holy Spirit, I pray they would become sensitive to your voice so that they can develop and become stronger in that prophetic gifting that you've given them, in Jesus's name.
Sid Roth: The Bible says, Jesus says, "My sheep, hear my voice". You're his sheep and you, hear me now, you hear his voice.
