Sid Roth - Angelic Encounters and Supernatural Protection with Dawn Tallent and Joseph Morris
Sid Roth: Can angels bring people new hearts? My guest says he knows it's true.
Sid Roth: Hello. I'm Sid Roth, investigative reporter, and have you seen an angel? I have some guests that have not only seen angels, but they would not even be alive if it wasn't for angels. Dawn, in 1976, you're living in a trailer park in Sedalia, Missouri and what happened?
Dawn Tallent: Well I had woke up at about 3:00 in the morning with almost like the bed shaking and the wind howling outside the window. And I was terrified of storms, so I felt like maybe I needed to get up and check on things. But I was so scared; I was afraid to move out of my bed. So I looked out the window and opened the curtains, and sure enough, the wind was knocking the trees down to the floor, to the ground. And I remember crawling back underneath the bed thinking, “if God doesn't spare us, it's not going to be a pretty sight when it's done”. And I felt like the Lord had told me, "Get up and look out the window again". I don't want to look out the window again, you know.
Sid Roth: Pretty foolish. You don't want to see that. It's bad enough that it's happening.
Dawn Tallent: Right. Right. Am I going to look at it again? And I just felt like I needed to do what God had told me. I was obedient, and I looked out the window; and to my astonishment, I looked out and saw these huge, absolutey massive, white-robed beings; and their faces were so bright that I couldn't see them. But they had a hood on the top of their head, and they had a tie around their waist, and they were standing there holding hands. You could almost see their hands gripping. And they were - their backs were faced to the wind and their front was faced to me. I laid back down again in the bed and I thought, “did I just see that?” And the Lord spoke to me again and told me, "Look again. I still want to show you something". And this time when I looked up I saw the entire mobile home being encompassed by all these angels. Every one of them were holding hands, and they were 8 feet - 10 feet tall, somewhere around in there. They looked like basketball players, but their shoulders were as broad as football players. They were massive in size.
Sid Roth: How did you feel when you saw this?
Dawn Tallent: Just - I was absolutely amazed, and I was like, “am I seeing what I'm seeing?”
Sid Roth: Had you ever seen angels before?
Dawn Tallent: No, I don't recall seeing an angel before.
Sid Roth: So what happened to all that fear?
Dawn Tallent: It absolutely left and I just - I just felt such a peace; an overwhelming peace that there was no more fear; that I didn't need to be scared of what the wind and the storm would do because God had sent beings to protect me, and He loved me enough to do that for me.
Sid Roth: How much damage occurred to your trailer?
Dawn Tallent: Absolutely none. There was no damage whatsoever.
Sid Roth: Now if the angels were not there, what do you think would have happened?
Dawn Tallent: Well there were trees around us and there was - we lived on a gravel road. So the gravel was, you know, before I looked, when I looked out the window the first time, the trees were bending over touching the ground. So they wouldn't have lasted very long. They could have come through the windows of the mobile home. That's why actually I didn't want to look out the window because I was afraid that one of the tree limbs was going to go flying through the window. And we were - the mobile home was secured and tied down. But you could feel the mobile home moving and the wind outside was making this freight train sound. And I was just - but God sent his protection in the form that I could see it so that I would never be afraid of storms again.
Sid Roth: Wow. But you ran into something actually even, I think, worse than the storm. Tell me about that.
Dawn Tallent: Well probably around 4 or 5 years ago I was faced with some demonic activity going on in my home, and I wasn't quite for sure what I was supposed to do about it.
Sid Roth: You were an abused wife.
Dawn Tallent: Yes, I was, for many years, and it seemed to get worse as the years go on with the abuse growing and the violence getting worse. And I remember that during that time there was never any way for us to know what we were going to deal with when he came home at night. One night it would be fine, the next night it would be horrible. Well after many, many times of abuse he got up one morning, couldn't find the keys to the car and got irate. And when he got irate I saw his eyes literally turn red. The pupils of his eyes turned red and the fear that overwhelmed me was horrible. He got so angry that he wound up choking me, making a concussion, knocking me out. I remember trying to get out of the house at the time, and it was as if he would translate from one place to another place so quickly that I couldn't get out. And I remember him coming after me at the last minute and I looked over and saw the Word of God, and something inside me told me to pick up the Word. And I picked it up.
Sid Roth: Picked up the Bible.
Dawn Tallent: I picked up the Word of God and put it up in front of me so that the Holy Bible read outward, and that's just the way I picked it up. I picked it up and held it in front of me, and I just prayed in the Spirit, saying, "God, please spare my life". Because I knew that I was not dealing with a human being. I was dealing with legions of demons inside this man.
Sid Roth: Possessed human being.
Dawn Tallent: Yes. And so it was if - when I started praying, God stopped him in his tracks. He froze. He didn't move.
Sid Roth: You mean, he's coming towards you; you hold up the Bible facing him.
Dawn Tallent: Yes.
Sid Roth: And he froze.
Dawn Tallent: And he froze.
Sid Roth: You're not exaggerating.
Dawn Tallent: No, I'm not exaggerating.
Sid Roth: He froze.
Dawn Tallent: He didn't move. I don't think he breathed, you know. He just stopped, and he didn't do anything. And his eyes got really big as if he was seeing something behind me, and I don't know what it actually was. But as soon as that happened, after he froze, and he looked, he wound up collapsing in the chair right beside me. He just collapsed.
Sid Roth: What do you think that he saw behind her? I think he saw some of those same angels that protected her in the trailer park. I want to go to Janie in the control room. Janie, you saw an angel also. Tell me about that.
Janie:Sid, I used to be a school teacher in the Greek Orthodox school. And all the children during the summer would go to Greece and they would come back with bugs. So I was teaching them, and I hate to say it, but I ended up having bugs and I couldn't get rid of these bugs. So I was trying to sleep one night and thinking, “how am I going to get rid of it.” And I thought of 4 scriptures. I thought, "God has not given me the spirit of fear, but of power, love and a sound mind". "When I lay down I'll have a sweet sleep". "By Jesus' stripes I was healed". And “The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear him". I said those 4 scriptures, but I didn't really feel anything. I started lying down, and all of a sudden, I felt this hand grab my arm, and my body filled up with the most intense fear, and I knew that that was not an angel, but that was a demon. I looked over but I couldn't see anything, but my body was so full of fear. But all of a sudden, I looked up on my ceiling, and I saw a big man, and he was an angel, and he was just floating on my ceiling. And I wanted to keep looking at him, but I felt completely asleep. And the next morning when I woke up, all the bugs were gone.
Sid Roth: We'll be back right after this. But do angels smile? Do angels smile at you? I have a man that says they do. Be right back after this.
Sid Roth: Hello. I'm Sid Roth your investigative reporter, and I asked you a question. Have you ever seen an angel smile? Do you believe angels smile? My guest says they do. Joseph Morris, tell me about the smiling angel.
Joseph Morris: Well I was in a meeting in Seekonk, Mass, and working for an evangelist. And all of a sudden I looked up, and there was an angel standing there.
Sid Roth: Was that the first time you ever saw an angel?
Joseph Morris: Yes, sir, first time. I was just as shocked as anybody else would be. I was brought up in a normal home not to think of anything weird or religious.
Sid Roth: What did the angel look like?
Joseph Morris: He had long brown hair, looked like a real strong man, about 8 feet tall; actually had his head bent over a little bit. Even though there was a dropped ceiling I assumed he could go through it, but he was bent over a little bit like that. It just shocked me, and he turned and smiled at me. I was going to make a new exit door because it so scared me, because I was brought up not to ask for visions or anything weird like that. But I saw him around these other ministers helping them in a service. Like every move they would make, he would move, make the same move almost as though he was like a guardian-type angel, I guess, and real, big, tall, strong.
Sid Roth: And he smiled?
Joseph Morris: Yes, smiled. Scared me so bad. I was like, “oh my word”, because it just shocked me.
Sid Roth: So he knew that you knew that you were seeing him.
Joseph Morris: That's how it seemed. As though it was almost just as neat to him that it was freaking me out. And it was totally freaking me out because I was like, oh my word, I'm seeing– You know, I started looking around thinking, “I’m seeing something”. Then I looked down again; I looked up, and they were still there. And so I was trying to make sure I hadn't lost my mind, and I realized they were there; yeah.
Sid Roth: And then another time an angel actually told you something about your family.
Joseph Morris: Yes. I was traveling on the road at that time, away from my wife. And we had some financial needs, and I was trying to work up thinking, “how am I gonna take care of this?” Actually, I was taking a bath in a hotel in Virginia, and I sensed something. I looked up, and there's this huge angel standing right there. This so shocked me I didn't know what to do. Then I quoted scripture to him, that “God supplies all my needs”, and he disappeared. But I thought, it would have been neat if he had waited a few minutes.
Sid Roth: How did this particular angel look?
Joseph Morris: Similar.
Sid Roth: Was he the same one or different?
Joseph Morris: No, I don't think so. He looked totally different but similar as far as a man, long hair, almost kind of a darker brown hair. I didn't really get caught up in the features. I was just shocked at the - I was in the bathtub and I wasn't - I was thinking, “if you'd wait a couple of minutes". You think of all the cool things you'd want to say.
Sid Roth: Of course.
Joseph Morris: And it just doesn't happen like that; you're too shocked. So I just quoted scripture to him.
Sid Roth: Were you afraid?
Joseph Morris: No, I really wasn't. I was shocked; a moment of afraid, and then a peace. And then after I quoted the scripture, about 3 days later, our finances were met, and everything was fine.
Sid Roth: So tell me how you think that dimension worked. Do you think that you said a scripture about your finances?
Joseph Morris: Yes, sir.
Sid Roth: From the Bible. And so what did this angel do with this scripture?
Joseph Morris: I believe he went and brought it to pass. I think he was waiting for my words as far as the scripture says, waiting for me to speak what is rightfully mine. And I think they're here all the time waiting for that. We just don't see them.
Sid Roth: So you think like right now on this set we're surrounded with angels.
Joseph Morris: I believe we are, yes, even though we don't see them.
Sid Roth: How come you see them and most people don't?
Joseph Morris: That's a good question. It would be what we call discerning the Spirit, one of those gifts of the Spirit in the scriptures. I never prayed for it, never thought about it. It just began to happen. One of the men that I was around as far as working had that happen at times, but I never wanted that. And just all of a sudden in 1986, that began to happen. And I think it was leading me to when I was in the service, a miracle would happen, and I would want to leave the service, or freak out. I would get used to that happening, so it didn't scare me so bad. I think the Lord was trying to train me a little bit to get used to it.
Sid Roth: Well I don't know about you, but there was a time that I saw an angel, and that's why I can believe about the smiling angel. I was on my way to St. Petersburg, Russia, and I was making a telephone call, and the man at the next booth, I was a little concerned about because sometimes people try to steal your, you know, your code number that you're calling.
Joseph Morris: Sure, sure.
Sid Roth: And so I'm looking at him and he's smiling at me. And I'm thinking, “are you a thief or something”, you know. And so I kept my eye on him. And finally he walks away, and I look, you know, is he around my back -
Joseph Morris: Right.
Sid Roth: Looking for my number, my code that I'm using?
Joseph Morris: Sure.
Sid Roth: And he's not behind my back. And there was a long corridor. There was nowhere for him to go. He was gone.
Joseph Morris: He disappeared. Wow.
Sid Roth: But he had the nicest smile, and I had the best meetings.
Joseph Morris: Oh, isn't that great.
Sid Roth: In St. Petersburg. Tell me another angel story.
Joseph Morris: Several different ones. I saw an angel stand by this woman in a meeting in Pennsylvania, and I was praying for her back. Words of knowledge that I have in a service, I knew the woman had been in a car wreck. She came down. I'm getting ready to pray for her. All of a sudden I realized to back away from her a little bit just to wait a moment. And as I did, I looked up and there was an angel just like those other times standing beside her, messing with the side of her head. But I was on the other side of her, so I really couldn't see. So I said, "What's going on with your head"? So I'm just asking her, and her eyes looked up like that, and she goes, "I can hear". And I didn't know that she had been deaf in this left ear. So the fruit of it was she got her hearing back. And I really don't care how it happened, I just saw the angel stand there and really didn't see what he did, but she was fine after that. So it was neat.
Sid Roth: Well I think neat is too mild a word. It wasn't just neat. But did you hear what Joseph Morris said? That there are angels around us all the time, waiting to do what God's Word from the Bible tells us. So I have a favorite word from the Bible: "All things are possible to those who believe". So I'm believing angels are about ready to move on that word. What do you need in your life? We'll be right back after this.
Sid Roth: Let's go to the control room and find out from Janie who our guest next week is. Janie?
Janie:Sid, you'll be interviewing a man by the name of Dave Roberson, and this man has spoken languages such as French, Spanish, Aramaic, German, but no one ever taught it to him. He spoke those languages supernaturally. And that's happened to me, and I know it's happened to you, Sid. And when it happens, I mean, I've been with people who would speak French and then all of a sudden when I would pray, it would come out in French. It would be something like this. It's a supernatural language.
Sid Roth: Listen, Janie, I studied German in high school and I sure wish I had learned it supernaturally. I had a rough time with German. But one of these days, I believe that all things are possible to who? Those who believe. As a matter of fact, have you ever spoken in a language that you've never been taught, that someone has recognized?
Joseph Morris: Sure, yes.
Sid Roth: What was that?
Joseph Morris: It was like Japanese. In a time, in Tulsa, Oklahoma I was speaking in tongues and somebody said, "That's Japanese". I said, "How do you know this"? "Well I speak Japanese". And I was speaking of the wonderful works of God and didn't even know what I was saying.
Sid Roth: But I'm interested in this woman and the new heart. How did you even know about that?
Joseph Morris: Well I was in a service and I looked up and these two angels were standing there, and I was shocked once again. So I looked down and I thought, you know...
Sid Roth: You're shocked a lot. I've noticed.
Joseph Morris: Well you know, I wasn't anticipating that. So and they were - they looked so intently. like they were looking at me for such a purpose. They weren't just to, you know, hang out. They were there for a purpose. So I ducked my head. I was waiting for my friend to come in and preach, and he came and started preaching. And then I had a word of knowledge: the Holy Spirit told me on the inside that those angels had come to deliver a woman a new heart. I still didn't think I was going to do that. I thought maybe my friend preaching was going to do that. At the end of the service he didn't call it out. So I got up and said, "There's a lady here that needs a heart - has heart trouble". I wasn't quite as bold as I should have been. This lady got up and I said, "As a matter of fact, you need a brand new heart". I got real bold once she came down, and she said, yes. I was thinking, “Lord, heal this woman before she dies”. She looked like she was going to drop dead right there. Well I told her these angels had “come”, I said, "But Jesus is your Healer; you're redeemed from the curse," and that kind of stuff. And she fell out; went back to her seat.
Sid Roth: When you say she “fell out”, the Spirit of God put her over backwards.
Joseph Morris: Yes, sir. She laid there for a moment. You could see light come back into her, color come back into her; went back to her seat. The wonderful thing was they gave the altar call. She came down, gave her life to the Lord, and her family did. Well she goes back to the doctor. The doctor does an EKG. He goes, "Wait a minute, wait; what's going on with you"? Her heart muscle was so damaged, she needed a transplant. He said, "You've got a brand new heart muscle". You know, it doesn't even read the same. So the newspaper people found out about it. They came on Wednesday. We didn't know they were newspaper people. We were just preaching the Bible, and so they wrote down things, “redeemed from the curse”, quoted scriptures that we had quoted in that service. Well come Friday night, we came to the service and the entry of the church was filled with people, with candles, incense, all kinds of interesting things. But they had heard an article came out that afternoon that, "Angels Bring Woman New Heart". So all these people came to hear about the angels, but they got the Good News preached to them that night. And I saw all these people come forward to give their life to the Lord. So that's what that demonstration was for, I believe.
Sid Roth: I mean, and this woman was literally given a brand new heart.
Joseph Morris: Yes. That's what the doctor said. He was shocked. He said, "Where did you go"? She said, "I went to a Gospel meeting and a man preached and laid hands on me". And she was healed.
Sid Roth: In Italy, there was someone with cancer and a tumor?
Joseph Morris: Yes. Three weeks ago, I was in Rome, Italy a suburb right outside of Rome called Ladispoli; I may not be pronouncing it right. But I had a word of knowledge: the Holy Spirit told me that somebody there had a cancerous growth. Some people came down, and a little girl had her head wrapped around; and I didn't know at the time, they had given her two weeks to live. I said, "I command you to be healed in the name of Jesus". And I said, "You can go back to your seat". And her parents just stood there waiting for me to do something radical or whatever. I said, "No, she's fine. She's healed according to the Word of God". Well, she goes back the doctor. The doctor checks her. He goes, "It's completely disappeared". It was inside her head like that.
Sid Roth: But wait a second. The doctor said 2 weeks to live.
Joseph Morris: That's what he said.
Sid Roth: Two weeks to live, and then instantly healed. You see, when I say “All things are possible to those who believe”, they really are. Joseph, if this were speaking, as a matter of fact, would you pray for people to be healed?
Joseph Morris: Yes.
Sid Roth: And see if you move into supernatural words of knowledge. Would you do that now?
Joseph Morris: Yes, yes, yes, yes. Father, we thank You for this audience hearing the words about ”All things are possible to him that believeth”. We thank You, Lord, that this is a year that You will be Almighty to us. I thank You for healing chronic asthma right now. Father, we command lungs to be whole in the name of Jesus. Lenses in people's eyes, we thank You, Father, for repairing damaged lenses. I command a carotid artery right now that is blocked, I command that artery to be open right now in the name of Jesus. Father, we thank You for demonstrations of the resurrection in this day. We thank you for a digestive tract problem being restored right now, Father, cancer, cancerous growths in the colon, cancer, you die right now in the name of Jesus. Father, we thank You for these folks that are whole. We thank You for revelation about what we have, Father, that “All things are possible to him that believeth”. Lord, we thank You for it, we thank You for deafness to be gone, ears to be open right now, perfect hearing in Jesus' name. We thank You for taste to come back to somebody's mouth, that they'll be able to taste their food, Father. We thank You for that in Jesus' name.
Sid Roth: That was very specific. Have you ever had a word like that before about the taste?
Joseph Morris: Yes, I've had several about that, yes. I've had one where I saw a gash on a person's tongue. I said, “There's a person, you've got a gash on your tongue. A child came down, was playing with a snapping turtle, and the turtle put a big old rip on his tongue. I saw a woman get poked in the eye with a fork one time and I called it out. An elderly woman came down, her sister had poked her in the eye with a fork, so she was healed. Just unusual things like that, but thank God, He knows everything.
Sid Roth: Now you also know almost warnings about accidents. Explain that.
Joseph Morris: At different times I've had the Holy Ghost warn me ahead of time about things like that. I also had a vision of a brother in a plane crash, and at the time he didn't even have a plane. Six years later, he ended up getting a plane and he was rescued from that. And supernaturally was taking off on this runway, had engine failure and came to a stop at the end. I believe people in his church began to pray. The Lord warned me that way. That's called a word of wisdom, technically, but it was to get me to pray so that wouldn't happen.
Sid Roth: What happened in Pittsburgh?
Joseph Morris: Several things. A child had leukemia got healed; a young lady.
Sid Roth: My goodness.
Joseph Morris: A friend of mine is a doctor. He said, “no, it just went into remission”. I said, “well one minute they had leukemia, the next minute they didn’t”. So I gave him a hard time. He's a Believer, but it still shocked him, too. But it was a young, about 10-year-old girl who was healed of leukemia there.
Sid Roth: What about you? There is something that is wrong with you that is beyond something physical. You see, you are separated from a vital relationship with God. I'm not talking about religion. I'm not talking about saying a prayer with Billy. I'm talking about knowing God. I'm talking about not knowing because some man tells you know. I'm talking about knowing God because you know him. I'm talking about a purpose for your life, a destiny for your life. And I want you pray with me because there's a presence of God right now that is going to change your life. Someone's back was just healed in Jesus' name. Say this prayer right now. Out loud. "Dear God, I'm a sinner. Please forgive me for all the horrible things I've done in my life. I'm so sorry. I believe that Jesus died for my sins, and by his blood I'm forgiven. And now that I am clean, I make Jesus my Lord and savior. Lord Jesus, come inside of me, take over my life. I make You Lord over every area of my life in Jesus' name. Amen". If you said that prayer and you meant it, God heard it. And I pray Spirit of the Living God becomes so real to everyone that prayed that prayer that no one could ever take that relationship away. I speak shalom to you, great shalom, great peace in Jesus' name. Now it's yours. Amen.
