Sid Roth - God Changes X-Ray and Baffles Doctor
Sid Roth: Hello. Sid Roth. Welcome to my world where it's naturally supernatural. My guest is such an amazing teacher on healing. Thousands have been healed listening to this woman. But I have to tell you, some of the things that have happened to her they can even stretch you. For instance, she had supernatural plastic surgery. Now, I know most of you women aren't interested in that and some of you men even aren't. But you know what I'm talking about. Anyway, that was a funny line. You should have laughed. But if you thought that stretched you, listen to this one. She had a woman sit under her teaching that had an incurable disease. This woman got healed. She went back to the doctor. The doctor pulled the original x-ray that proved she had this disease. It was an incurable disease. The power of God was so strong on her that it went on, I don't know how this happened, it went on the original x-ray and the x-ray shows there's no problem either. I'm going to have this woman teach from our brand new Supernatural Bible, and devil, your days are numbered.
Sid Roth: Hello. I'm here with my guest, Dr. Sandra Kennedy. And Sandra, you see thousands of people healed. What's your secret? How do you get so many healed?
Sandra Kennedy: You know, just in all honesty it has to do with simplicity of the Word, teaching the Word so simple and holding on to one of my favorite scriptures, which is, "Let God be true and let man be a liar". Trusting the Word of the Lord, falling in love with Jesus, making up my mind that if he said it he will do it and I can trust him, and taking that Word, and breaking it down, and teaching it to you, so that you end up believing and loving the Lord, and you just take it.
Sid Roth: You know what's so wonderful, what she teaches not only works for thousands of other people, it works for her.
Sandra Kennedy: Yes it does.
Sid Roth: Tell me about the time your nice little dog bit off part of your lip.
Sandra Kennedy: Yes, it bit off from right here to right here, about a quarter, a nickel size of m lip. And the doctor told me the upper lip could not regrow itself and the bottom lip would. But anyway, I go to the hospital, they do surgery, they tell me I've got to have all these surgeries again and I said, no, I'm never going to have another surgery, and I said, because God is going to heal it. Then of course, they wanted me to look at this book showing all these cleft lips and how I would never be able to speak and never be able to say anything.
Sid Roth: I bet you drove the plastic surgeon nuts.
Sandra Kennedy: I absolutely did.
Sid Roth: For saying you did not want this plastic surgery.
Sandra Kennedy: I did. I drove him absolutely nuts. And when I'd go in, he'd go to show me a book. I wouldn't look at it. I said, "No, I'm going to get pictures of me looking really good with a big smile". Because he said I'd never have a smile again.
Sid Roth: And instead of mirrors, you wouldn't look in a mirror while God was doing his miracle.
Sandra Kennedy: Yes. I put a picture of me looking really good and a big smile, you know. And then I'd look in the mirror and I'd talk to it. I'd said, "You hear me. I command you in the name of Jesus, you straighten yourself out," just like that.
Sid Roth: Now after God healed you.
Sandra Kennedy: Yes.
Sid Roth: You saw the plastic surgeon. What did he say to you?
Sandra Kennedy: Listen, I saw him back then, but I just recently, Sid, saw him. After about 14 years, I saw him and he said to me, "What have you done to your lip"? And I said, "Nothing. I've never had another thing done to it except what you did 14 years ago on the operating table, and all you did was slice, cut out some of the bad spots and pull it together, and tie together with cat gut. But I've never had anything else done. My God did this". And he said, "He did a really good job".
Sid Roth: Well in addition to plastic surgery, tell me about someone that you taught this person that had an incurable disease. It was Crohn's disease.
Sandra Kennedy: Crohn's disease, yes.
Sid Roth: What I want to know is it's wonderful that this woman was healed of an incurable disease. But explain to me what happened with the diagnostic x-rays that proved she had Crohn's disease.
Sandra Kennedy: Well she took them and went to another state to a specialist to try to get some, took her old x-rays with her and went to another state to get some input from them, I think to have surgery done or something. Anyway, when she delivered her x-rays, in the meantime, she took a Bible, turned the Bible upside down on top of her x-rays and kept believing the Word of God to go into those, you know, it matters what you believe. It truly matters what you believe. It matters what you think. And she put that Bible on top of those x-rays and by the time she got to a specialist and he picked up the old x-rays, they were perfect. Nothing, ne could find nothing.
Sid Roth: That's impossible. You're telling me the x-rays changed?
Sandra Kennedy: I'm telling you.
Sid Roth: That the original diagnostic x-ray, I mean, I understand she was healed, but you're stretching me.
Sandra Kennedy: I know. I said the x-rays are healed.
Sid Roth: Well I'm going to tell you, I don't think any of us have comprehended how important the Word of God is. It's living. It's alive. It's like taking Jesus into you. And we have a brand new Bible. It's the Supernatural Bible. I have Dr. Sandra Kennedy's notes in here on healing. I have a section on tongues that when you read that you will, if you're praying an hour a day, you'll be praying two hours. If you're not praying, you'll be praying in tongues. It motivates you to pray in tongues. I have the hidden meaning that the devil has hidden from us about the blood of Jesus. And what I so love is your notes. I had Sandra pick out her favorite scriptures, they're highlighted in the Bible with a great portion and then she explains these notes. And I have to tell you, all I know about healing, my faith went zoom as I read it. Any time I'm struggling with something, I want to read your notes. You told me when you wrote the notes, what happened.
Sandra Kennedy: I mean, faith just arose in the room. It was unbelievable. Sid, it was fun, it was exciting, it was like Jesus was right there in the room with us. I mean, it was probably one of the most exciting things I've ever done. It just poured out of me as I would begin to do it. It would just pour out stories. It was thrilling.
Sid Roth: Well we'll have Sandra back. But in the next segment, I'm going to have my friend Dr. Michael Brown. And Dr. Brown was a rock musician, into drugs. He finds Jesus. He immediately goes to rabbis and starts telling them how wonderful our Messiah is, and did he get the shock of his life. It totally changed his destiny. Be right back.
Sid Roth: So my friend Dr. Michael Brown, before he was a doctor, of course, he's into drugs, he's into rock music, he's a musician. And you think his parents would be so happy, his nice Jewish parents, that now he's off of drugs and he's become as we Jews call a real mensch. But they weren't happy because of Jesus.
Dr. Michael Brown: I mean, listen, they were thrilled that I was off drugs. But my dad sat me down and he said, "Michael, it's good you're off drugs, but we're Jews. We don't believe in this". So here, I'm saved in just a matter of weeks. I'm shooting heroin, using LSD, cocaine, stealing money from my own father, just a decadent, wicked kid, 16 years old, brand new believer. Dad said, "Great, you're off drugs. We're happy for you, but we're Jews. You have to talk to the rabbi". So within weeks, literally within weeks of me being born again, I have my first appointment to meet the local rabbi who's now going to begin to lovingly challenge me about everything I believe. You're talking about a brilliant guy, just graduated from Jewish theological seminary, studying Hebrew all his life. He knows objections I don't even know exist and now I'm going to get challenged. So literally, right out of the spiritual womb I get challenged.
Sid Roth: And one of the things he said to you is how well do you speak Hebrew or understand Hebrew. What did you say?
Dr. Michael Brown: Look, when I was Bar Mitzvahed I learned enough Hebrew to chant a passage from the Torah, the Prophets, but I didn't even know what I was reading. I just chanted the Hebrew.
Sid Roth: Me, too.
Dr. Michael Brown: So the little I remembered was just a few letters, a few words. So I said to him, "Look, I don't know Hebrew now, but I can use it in concordance in the back of Strong's, there's a dictionary i'll use that". I said, in the meantime, I remember he said to me, "Meantime, shmeen time, it doesn't mean a thing". So once I started college, I thought, okay, I got to learn Hebrew, but they were teaching modern Hebrew. So I thought, all right, I get a textbook. I taught myself biblical Hebrew, and then I thought, you know, I could learn maybe some of the related languages like Arabic, but you know, the New Testament is in Greek and Latin is important, and the scholars write in German. So I ended up in college studying six different languages and then going on to NYU to do my Master's and Ph.D. there and then learning the other ancient Semitic languages. Look, I loved the study. I enjoyed that. But I was determined I don't want to have to rely on a dictionary. I don't want to have to rely on the commentary. The rabbi says that. I want to be able to think for myself and understand what the text says.
Sid Roth: The big question is, Mike, I know you. I know that you have a healthy fear of God within you. I know this. Between you and me, has there anything been told to you by rabbis with these 2000 years of study and knowing Hebrew well that has rocked your faith?
Dr. Michael Brown: I'll be totally honest with you.
Sid Roth: Yes.
Dr. Michael Brown: When I got hit with some of the objections in the early days, okay, I knew that Jesus had changed my life, but I also said these are serious questions. I need to dig. And I determined before God, I prayed with all my heart. I said, "God, I'm going to follow you as a Jew and I'm going to be loyal. If Jesus is not the Messiah and I have to renounce him and lose all my friends and say I'm wrong, I'll do it. But if everything I believe is true, I don't care of the whole Jewish care rejects me, I'm going to follow". And I said, "God, you've just got to help me to know that I know, that I know". And Sid, the scriptures opened up to me like never before. Words came jumping off the page. I remember telling God, if Yeshua, if Jesus is not the Messiah then you intentionally deceived me because it could not be any more clear. So it had the reverse effect from what the rabbis wanted. The more I got challenged, the more I learned, and I did it with an open heart. I said, "God, I'm not just trying to come up with a cheap answer". When I look at some of the answers others had, I thought, no, that's a cheap answer. I don't like that. And I would dig and I would wrestle, and out of that, two or three times of really having my faith rocked, I came so much clear in my understanding. And I can say, shout it to the whole world to any rabbi, any time, day or night, with all respect, for a sincere man, Jesus, Yeshua is the Messiah of Israel. If he's not the Messiah of Israel then the Hebrew Scriptures are lying to us.
Sid Roth: And guess what I've had Dr. Michael Brown do? You will be fascinated with this. We took the modern English version of the Bible and I had him chain reference the most important predictions proving Jesus is the Messiah from the Old and the New Covenant, and then write a commentary. And I'm going to tell you, he did something you've probably never seen before. He not only wrote it as to why Jesus is the Messiah, but he wrote why the rabbis say he's not, 2000 years to prove this, and why the rabbis are wrong. It will be one of the most intriguing studies and that combined with the healing and the supernatural. And then there are articles that I have written on the End Time book to the church. You know what that is? Not Revelation. Esther, on God's heart for the Jews and Israel, on how to communicate the Gospel with Jewish people, on the feasts and the cycle of the feasts, and I'm not saying to do these things, because you have to. But God has a blessing in everything in this Bible, and it's one of the freshest translations because even many of the words that were originally from the Greek are from the Hebrew now. Like instead of Mary, how about "Miriam". She sounds a little Jewish, Mike. Now when we come back, I'm going to have Dr. Sandra Kennedy and Dr. Michael Brown, and we're going to just be so free in the Holy Spirit. I believe people are going to be healed and I believe some of you are going to fall madly in love with Jesus. Be right back.
Sid Roth: I can't tell you how excited I am to finally have this Bible. In fact, Mike, you said to me that this, tell me about when you did these notes for this Bible.
Dr. Michael Brown: For years, people have wanted me to take all these volumes I've written, a lot for someone read, take the highlights and put them in a Bible: Messianic prophecies, why these point to Yeshua, why the rabbis' objections are wrong. And for years I've been asked. For years I said I wanted to do it, but you asked me I finally had grace, in the midst of all the other writing projects, I had this window and I felt God, I felt like I was running this race and being carried along. The notes just flowed. So finally after decades we're able to put this stuff in the Bible, literally for the first time.
Sid Roth: The truth of the matter is that with this new Bible you are going to have the revelation of what is so dear to God's heart right now, so special to him at this moment because it says in Romans 9, and I've just been dwelling on this, Mike and Sandra, of the Jewish people, of them is the Glory. What is the next great move on Planet Earth? The Glory. And I believe the catalyst for the Glory will come from Jewish people. There are millennials all over the world that are, recognize that there is nothing worthwhile in this earth. But once they hear the Good News, once they understand Jeremiah 31:31, which says, "There will be a New Covenant for you and the Word will not just be on the outside, it will be on the inside of you and you will know God for yourself, not because someone preaches a good message. You'll know God for yourself and all of your sins I won't just cover as we did in the Old Covenant. I will remember them no more". That's in the Jewish Scriptures. Mike, Isaiah 53, I don't think it's an accident that Isaiah 53 is the most graphic description in the Jewish Scriptures about Jesus. And Sandra, I don't think it's an accident, but I believe the major foundation for healing is found when you understand the Hebrew in Isaiah 53. You did a Ph.D. on that subject. What does the Hebrew say about healing, in the 53rd Chapter of Isaiah?
Dr. Michael Brown: This is the view of the prophets. The whole man, holy healed. By getting healed on the inside, we're healed on the outside. They did not look at it just spiritual healing while Israel dies and languishes in exile or just physical restoration without the inside. So where it says, "The cost of his wounds, there is healing for us," it's inside, it's outside. That's the vision of the prophets. By Jesus dying for our sins he thereby provides healing for the whole man. That's what's there. It's a glorious text and it's one that we can never dive into too deeply.
Sid Roth: And Sandra, if I was to force you to comment on Isaiah 53 in healing, after that brilliant description, what would you say?
Sandra Kennedy: I'd start off with Verse 1. I'd say you've got to believe the report in order to see the power of God. You've got to believe the report of what Isaiah 53 said. You have to believe that he is the Messiah. You have to believe that he is the Coming One. You have to believe that the Lord has done what he said he would do and you have to understand that he really did take for us, in our place. In other words, he carried our sins. He carried our grief. He took, he bore them. If he bore them and he carried them, I don't need to be bearing anything nor carrying anything. He took care of everything for me, but I got to believe the report first. I got to believe the report.
Sid Roth: And the Messiah said, when the spirit left his body, hanging on the tree for you, "It is finished".
Sandra Kennedy: Yes.
Sid Roth: That means stop your stinking thinking and start thinking like God. According to Isaiah 53, from my Hebrew scholar and a scholar of healing in the scriptures, by his stripes you were healed. Finished. It is finished.
