Sid Roth - God Shows Her the Future
Sid Roth: Hello. I'm Sid Roth your investigative reporter. My guest Janet Morgan is a school teacher, Jewish and she begins hearing the audible voice of God all the time. She has a tumor in the brain, supernaturally healed. Janet Morgan, what's a nice Jewish school teacher from Brooklyn going to a Bible study?
Janet Morgan: Well I was invited to go by a young Jewish man who lived in my building. And looking back, I know I was compelled to go because the day that the Bible study came up, I asked my girlfriend should I pick her up, she said she wasn't going, and I said, but we have to go. And I went to this strange house with strange people that I didn't know. And I got in there and it was a little strange, and then people start singing, then they stand up, then they raise their hands. And I'm like, oh my God, what did I get myself into.
Sid Roth: How can I get out of here?
Janet Morgan: Fast and I couldn't. And then somebody whips out a tambourine and I was sure I had come into some kind of, I don't know, holy roller meeting or something. It was very strange. But I waited. Somebody sat down, I sat down. And then a friend of the boy that lived in my building began to do a Bible study, began teaching the Bible, and it was very interesting to me. I had never really studied it. And then finally the meeting was over and this other young Jewish boy started to talk to me. But we were sitting in this house in August with this little fluffy dog that shed all over this big fluffy carpet and I had horrible allergies. My whole family had them, hay fever, rose fever, grass fever, all fur-bearing animals. And by the time this meeting was over my eyes were puffed out, my nose was stuffed, I couldn't breathe and I was itching to get out. So I said to him, "Could we go outside and talk".
Sid Roth: Not because of the meeting, but because of the allergies.
Janet Morgan: Well the beginning of the meeting was a little strange.
Sid Roth: Fifty-fifty.
Janet Morgan: Yeah. The teaching was interesting. So then we went out and we're sitting like this but on a picnic table under the black August sky. And he begins telling me about God and about Jesus being his son, and I'm listening. But all of a sudden, Sid, his voice began to fade out. His mouth kept moving like on tv, but I heard nothing, which I thought was very strange. But then up in the sky, way up above his head a flash of light like the fireworks, the big chandeliers, and out of that came a streaming fire that went through the sky and lit in my ear, and this beautiful mellifluous baritone said to me, "Listen to what he's telling you. It's the truth and it's for your life". And then the fire came up out of my ear like a comet's trail through the sky and then another big burst of fireworks, and it was gone. I suppose my face looked like...
Sid Roth: Janet, had this ever happened to you before?
Janet Morgan: No. I had never seen anything like that in my life.
Sid Roth: I have to ask you a question. Were you drinking at this party? Jane: I was not drinking. There was nothing going on.
Sid Roth: Did you have drugs?
Janet Morgan: No, nothing at all. It was just amazing. And he didn't even know it, because I could see from his face he hadn't seen a thing.
Sid Roth: Okay, you were supposed to listen to what he was telling you. What was he telling you?
Janet Morgan: Well his voice faded back in and he was telling me about God and the fact that Jesus was his son, and yes they were Jewish, and the Bible is the Word of God, and I need to be reading it and live my life that way. And then he asked me if I had a Bible, and I said I didn't, and he said he'd give me one if I drove him home. So I ended up driving he and this other young man home. And when I went to drop him off at the subway station the other young man says to me, "I can see you're suffering with these allergies, sister". And I was like, uh-huh. And he said, "You know, the Bible says that God wants you well". I'm like, that's nice, okay. And he says, "You know, and Jesus says that if believers will lay hands on them, on the sick, they will recover". And I'm like, that's nice. And he said, "Can we pray for you"? And i, you know, through my head went, who would say no to prayer. Of course, go ahead, pray for me. So they put my hands on my head and they prayed, and nothing happens. And he goes, and I drop the other one off. He hands me a Bible and he says, "Starting reading at the book of John". So I go home to my apartment, I get undress, I get into bed. I'm looking at the Bible and I say, oh, Old Testament, New Testament, Jewish part, gentile part. Makes sense. And I skimmed the beginning and then I went looking for the book of John, but it was not at the beginning of the New Testament. Matthew was. So I was, um-hmm, already they're trying to pull the wool over my eyes.
Sid Roth: No one is going to do that to a school teacher.
Janet Morgan: No. No, this was not happening. So I turn to Matthew and I start reading down the book of Matthew, and it says, "These are the generations of Jesus Christ". So and so begat so and so, begat so and so begat. And as I'm halfway down the page and everybody begetting, and I'm hysterical laughing. I crack up. I'm laughing. I close the Bible. I'm still laughing. And then I stop and I say, "Okay God, tell you what, I've always believed in you. I thought anybody that was intelligent had to believe there was a God". I said, "Now they're telling me that Jesus is your son and he was Jewish, and it's all a Jewish thing, and I need to read the read the Bible and study it". So I said, "I'll tell you what I'll do, God. I will read the Bible. I will study your Bible word by word, and I will take it at face value. I will believe it unless somebody can prove to me that it's not true".
Sid Roth: That's a pretty fair thought.
Janet Morgan: I thought so. I said, "Do we got a deal, God"? And instantly, my head drained. Did you ever see the drano commercial where it goes?
Sid Roth: Sure.
Janet Morgan: That's what happened to my head. My eyes literally unpuffed. I felt my face unswell. My nose cleared up, my sinuses emptied.
Sid Roth: Did this happen once in a while anyway?
Janet Morgan: Never, not in August. Anybody with those allergies knows it never clears up and you never feel your sinuses empty and drain. And I could breathe, and it was August, and I was so proud of myself. I was like, what do you know, there really is a God in heaven. And that was it. And I went on from there studying and reading the Word of God. I believed and I was healed.
Sid Roth: But then God spoke to you again.
Janet Morgan: About two weeks later, I was sitting on the subway, I was reading the Bible and I hear this same mellifluous baritone, and it says to me, "Isn't it time you made a commitment"? So I look around, but nobody is talking to me. It's a crowded subway, so I ignore it and I go on reading. And then I hear, "I said, isn't it time you made a commitment"? I'm like, what do you want? What?
Sid Roth: Janet, hold that thought. We're going to find out how she begins to hear the audible voice of God, has an actual vision in which she sees her future. Don't go away.
Sid Roth: Hello. Sid Roth your investigative reporter. I'm speaking to Janet Morgan. And this Jewish woman literally heard God's voice and God says, "When are you going to make a commitment"? What happened next, Janet?
Janet Morgan: He told me to turn to Mark 16:16. So I turned to it and it's like the great commission, you know, "Go ye into all the world and believe and be baptized". So I said, "You want me to get baptized"? And the voice said, "It would be a good idea". I said, "All right, fine". So I went to the Bible study that night and I told them, I said, "Listen, God said I have to get baptized". They said, "Fine, bring something you can wet in on Sunday". And so I did. And on Sunday after the meeting they baptized me.
Sid Roth: But didn't this bother you? I mean, you're Jewish and Jewish people, we don't know our history. We don't know that baptism started, the whole thing was Jewish and it was a mikvah. But we Jewish people usually don't like that idea. Didn't it bother you a little?
Janet Morgan: It didn't bother you simply because at this point I knew I was hearing the voice of God.
Sid Roth: Okay. So you go to the baptism and then what?
Janet Morgan: From the moment I was baptized I began hearing God's voice all the time, like he lived my apartment with me.
Sid Roth: How good was that?
Janet Morgan: It was unbelievable. It was, if I had a question I asked. When I got dressed I would stand there and wait to hear, "Don't wear that, I don't like that". And occasionally he would say, "Get rid of that dress. Get rid of this". I had like, I was instantly being, I felt like somebody had come and stamped on my bottom, "Rush for Christmas" because it was one thing after another. My life was being changed. And I was willing. Wasn't that, that was incredible. You didn't know me back then. But whenever I heard the Lord speak to me I was willing to do it.
Sid Roth: Give me one supernatural example of something he said to you.
Janet Morgan: The morning of October 2nd, I got, went to get out of bed to go to work and this invisible hand like pushed me back into my bed, and I literally watched a movie screen drop down from the ceiling, and I was sitting there watching this movie. To make a long story short, my mother is in the hospital in a coma, she's dying. I'm standing there praying.
Sid Roth: This is what you see on the television screen.
Janet Morgan: I'm watching in the movie. It's like a movie I'm watching. And I'm kind of angry at God because she's dying and he promised, you know, his promise is your family would get saved and everything. And I called for prayer and the elders come, and they're kind of praying in the corner. And then all of a sudden above the bed, Jesus appears and light is emanating out of him. And he turns to my mother and addresses her. And he says, you know, "Linda, get up and rise. You know who I am". And she does and she's healed, and she goes walking out. Then he turns to me and he says, "Janet, I want you to know that my words are always true. Every promise I've ever made you and any promise in my word is real and true, and will always be for your life". And then he turns past me to the two men in the corner that are praying and he says, "Reverend Morgan, rise and come forward". Nobody ever called howie reverend Morgan, certainly not in the '70s. You know, he was like howie. But he got up and he came forward with his knees knocking and the Lord said, "And you will cleave this man, this woman unto you as wife. Together you will grow and prosper. You'll have many children. Your ministry will go from Brooklyn to Manhattan, to queens, to the world". End of thing. Up goes the screen. I thought I had been there 25 minutes. I looked at my clock, maybe 30 seconds.
Sid Roth: How well did you know this Howard?
Janet Morgan: I didn't know him at all. He was the one that was running the meeting, the Bible study. He was teaching them. I had never spent any time...
Sid Roth: So you have this vision that you're going to...
Janet Morgan: Marry him.
Sid Roth: Marry this man who is going to be a minister and go all over the world and you barely even know who he is. What did you think about that?
Janet Morgan: I said to God, "Lord, he's not my type at all. You don't know him". The Lord says, "What is your type"? Because God always dealt with me this way, so he knew what he was dealing with. I said, "Well he doesn't wear brooks brothers suits and he's not a doctor or a lawyer".
Sid Roth: Well that's the type your mother trained you for.
Janet Morgan: Absolutely. And so I let that go. The next day I had the same type of thing, only this time I was in the hospital bed and it went up. And afterwards I said, "God, you're trying to tell me something". He said, "Yes". I said, "No". And then I noticed that the Lord got very quiet because he wasn't discussing everything with me. We weren't talking as I was walking to the subway. He just, and by the second day I really noticed it. And that night we had been to the Bible study, now we were out having coffee. A whole bunch of believers, we were all having coffee and talking. And I said to them, I said, "Did you notice how quiet the Lord got today"? And they said, "What do you mean"? I said, "You know, like he wasn't talking a lot". And they're like, "What do you mean talking, Janet"? I said, "Don't you hear him talk"? And they're all looking at me like, okay. And they said, "Well what do you mean hear"? I said, "Like I hear you, you hear his voice". And they go, "No, we just sense it".
Sid Roth: It dawned on you that not everyone hears God all the time.
Janet Morgan: And everybody was saying, the Lord said this and the Lord said that, but they weren't hearing his voice.
Sid Roth: They were sensing, but not hearing an audible voice.
Janet Morgan: Right. And all of a sudden they wanted, they kept, they had a thousand questions, what about this and what about that. I said, "All I know is what I know. He's just talking to me, and he did that on and on, and on. I heard his voice all the time". But at the end of that night when I was saying how quiet he is, one of the young men said to me, "What did you do wrong"? I said, "What do you mean what did I do wrong"? He said, "If God stopped talking to you, you did something. Did you say no"?
Sid Roth: Yes, you did.
Janet Morgan: Yes I did. I said no to him. So I went home that night and I said, "All right God, what do you want"? And I said, and he wouldn't answer me. I said, "What, what did I do wrong"? And I started thinking back to the two days. And I got back in the thing with marrying howie. So I finally said, "All right, I'll marry howie. Are you happy"? And God said, "Yes". I said, "Okay, fine. What do you want from me"? And the Lord said, "Obedience, simple obedience". And he said, "And for you if it isn't immediate it isn't obedience". I said, "Well that's kind of strict. I'm so sure I like that".
Sid Roth: You said that to God?
Janet Morgan: I did. I did.
Sid Roth: Janet, hold that thought. I want to find out about this dr. Howard Morgan that evidently God said was supposed to be Janet's husband and he wasn't even her type. We'll be right back.
Sid Roth: There was another Jewish man that could look into the future and know what happened. His name, the prophet Isaiah. And in the Jewish scriptures Isaiah says, in the 7th chapter, the 14th verse, "Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign. Behold the young woman shall conceive and bear a son and shall call his name emanuel, God with us". A young woman will have a sign and this one will be called, this child will be called God is with us. Now many Christian translations, this is the approved Jewish scriptures, but many Christian translations say "Virgin", not young woman. Big difference. Who's right, the Christians or the Jews? We have to go back to the ancient rabbis. Two hundred years before Jesus came to earth we had a translation of the best rabbis that were around. It was called the septuagint, translating from Hebrew to Greek. And they took the only Greek word in this verse that means exclusively "Virgin". So back then the ancient rabbis knew that it should be translated this way: "Therefore the Lord himself will give you a miracle sign. Behold a virgin shall conceive and bear a son and shall call his name emanuel, God with us". His name today, Yeshua, the moshiach.
Sid Roth: So God tells Hanet Morgan that she's supposed to marry this Howard Morgan. Now she says, "God, he's not my type". But she finally comes to her senses and says, "I'll do it, God". Howard Morgan, what about you? You had something to say about it. She didn't tell you anything. How did you find out?
Howard Morgan: She didn't tell me a thing about it. On December 17th, excuse me, 1976 this was, which coincidentally was five years exactly to the day that I met the Lord Jesus myself, Janet and I had spent a little time in the afternoon. We went out to eat with some friends. I went home. It was about 10 or 11:00 at night. And when I walked into my apartment, I closed the door behind me, just opened it up, normally walked in, and sid, my apartment was filled with a cloud. The presence of God was supernaturally in manifestation. I felt like there was a thick cloud in my apartment.
Sid Roth: Had you ever seen this before?
Howard Morgan: No, never had an encounter like this before, not on this level.
Sid Roth: Literally you could feel it and see it?
Howard Morgan: Feel it, see it. It was like a mist was in my apartment and I could feel it. And I stopped. I mean, as soon as I opened my apartment door it was there greeting me. And I stopped and I said, "Lord, you're here in a special way. You must want to tell me something". And he said these words to me, "Howie, you're going to marry Janet". And it was like something inside of me just started welling up. And being the great man of faith that I was, I immediately started doubting this. I said, this can't be God, you know. And all that night I was up, actually stamping little Gospel booklets, the title of which was, "An unbeliever convinced", and the Lord kind of spoke to me, that I'm trying to convince you of this. And because I understood the seriousness of what the Lord was saying to me, I wanted to make sure that I was really hearing God speak to me.
Sid Roth: What were your thoughts about this? What did you think that this really was God?
Howard Morgan: Yeah, I did believe that God had really spoken it because it was such a powerful encounter. But I just, as a pastor of a congregation I had people that I was responsible for. I knew I didn't want to make the wrong decision and marry the wrong woman because after coming to the Lord I knew that was the most important decision I could ever make, and this after that was the most important decision I could make. And I asked the Lord to confirm it. Maybe some of our viewers need to understand that it's okay to ask God to confirm his words so that we don't make mistakes, especially about really important decisions. And God began to confirm these words. One of the men that I was working with in the congregation, he said to me, when I told him about this, he said to me, "You know, I was praying for you and the Lord told me that you're going to marry a new believer and it was going to happen soon". And when he told me this I almost literally dropped the phone. Janet was a new believer and God had said that I was going to marry her. And then other events, things began to happen, and I started developing feelings for Janet. So I went to her one evening. I said to her, "I need to talk to you". I went in to her apartment and because if this was not the Lord, if I was missing it in some way I didn't want to let my feelings start going.
Sid Roth: I mean, what is she going to say?
Howard Morgan: Yeah really. I'm thinking, you know, and I said to her, "Listen, I'm beginning to develop these feelings for you and if it's really not the Lord I have to drop it now because I don't want to hurt you, I don't want to hurt me, I don't want to jeopardize anybody in the fellowship".
Sid Roth: Janet, you said he's not your type. You finally said, "Okay, God, I'll down what you're saying". Now he comes to you. A cloud comes into his apartment. A voice says to marry you. How did you respond?
Janet Morgan: Well after I agreed to marry him, I told the Lord that he'd better have the qualities that I wanted in a husband. And so God said, make a list. So I took out a legal pad and I made a list of all the qualities, little things like great infinitesimal fortitude, integrity, strength, honesty, little qualities. But then over the next month or so the Lord would allow me to watch Howard in these situations where I would see these characteristics coming forth. So that by the time he came to me there was a check next to each one of them on the list. So when he came and said this to me, and also when I had that initial vision, I said to the Lord, "Well should I go and tell him"? And the Lord said to me, "No, but when he comes to tell you it will come to pass". So here he was coming to tell me. I walked into my room, picked up the pad, threw it down on the table.
Howard Morgan: Let me tell you, this is funny because I'm talking to her in her kitchen, and I said to her, "I'm developing these feelings, I had this experience". And she got up, Sid. She didn't say a word to me. She just got up and walked out of the room and I thought, oh my God, I really offended this girl. And I watched her. I distinctly remember I watched her walked down the hall.
Sid Roth: I wish I had a tv camera.
Janet Morgan: This was so funny.
Howard Morgan: Maybe in heaven we'll all watch this and everybody else is like, I remember watching her walk down the hall and going to get a legal pad, didn't say a word to me, and just put the legal pad down with this long list of qualities and check marks next to them. And I said to her, "What's this"? And then she told me about the vision, and she told me about watching these qualities. And Sid, at that moment when we looked, we were looking at each other across the kitchen table it was like the ground opened up and we fell in love with each other supernaturally.
Sid Roth: Wait. Did you fall in love with him?
Janet Morgan: Right then and there. I had no feelings for him up until that time. I had grown respectful of him as I saw these qualities, but nothing else.
Sid Roth: Okay. You're happily married and you have a tumor on the brain.
Janet Morgan: Yes.
Sid Roth: Tell me about it.
Janet Morgan: This was with my third child. I had bad pregnancies, but this was the worst and they couldn't do anything for me. After I gave birth I never got better. The pediatrician said, "You need to see an endocrinologist". I went. He set me for all the tests that were available then. I had cat scans, I had polytomography. And they came out of it and said...
Howard Morgan: That's brain x-rays.
Sid Roth: Thank you.
Janet Morgan: And they came out of it saying, "Well it looks like there's a micro adenoma on your pituitary, but we have to wait for it to grow bigger so we can go in if we're going to operate.
Sid Roth: Sounds pretty bad to me.
Janet Morgan: It was because as we waited I got tunnel vision until I was only seeing like this. I had pounding in my head. I couldn't walk. I was bed ridden. I had a five year old, a two and a half year old and an infant. We had a big congregation at that point. My life was shut down. And everybody was praying. We had people pray. We tried everything. My Jewish doctor had us try one medication, didn't work.
Sid Roth: Bottom line, what happened?
Janet Morgan: One night somebody came and prayed for me who had prayed for me before. I went to sleep that night. Nothing. Got up the next morning and I was fine. I woke up. I didn't hear banging in my head. I didn't have tunnel vision. I could see. I woke him. I said, "Howie, howie, I can see, I can hear".
Sid Roth: What did the doctor say?
Janet Morgan: We went back to see Dr. Spigel (Spig-Al) my Jewish doctor. You do a good imitation of him.
Howard Morgan: You see him walking with us through this and all the things he said to us, "Listen, we can't do anything". He had a long beard. He stroked his beard as he looked over his desk, and said to me, "Laying on of hands, huh"? Because he had heard about, you know, this gift.
Sid Roth: But a few years later, you had the x-ray. What did it show?
Janet Morgan: First he asked me to go for another cat scan right then and there. He paid for it. He said it looks fine. Several years later I was having another problem. They sent me for an mri. After they took it, the technologist comes out and said, "You have a brain tumor sometime"? He was Japanese.
Sid Roth: He could tell you had one and you didn't have one?
Janet Morgan: This is what we said. And we came inside and we said, "How do you know this"? And he showed us where it was, but wasn't, without scarring, without signs from any drugs.
Sid Roth: It's true. It's true. God is real and God is not a respecter of persons. And he, I can tell you, I can feel his love for you right now. He's actually going through right through your television set and the love of God, this is really, this isn't an actual thing, this is a supernatural thing. The love of God, you ask God, say, who is Jesus, and reach out and hug him. He's going to hug you back. You watch. You watch. It's true, he really does love you.
