Sid Roth - My Guardian Angels Came to Me with an Important Message with Joshua Mills
Sid Roth: Hello, Sid Roth here. Welcome to my world, where it's naturally supernatural. Joshua Mills is known as "the golden preacher", because of being coated frequently in, Heavenly gold dust. And I mean I've just never seen something like this! He has every square inch of his body is coated! But God's expanding his knowledge of the Glory. Now he's traveling to foreign countries without airplanes. He calls it "being transported in the Glory"!
Sid Roth: Now Joshua, I can't wait to kind of pick your brain on the Glory, because you're one of these people that were a forerunner in this. But you said the Glory came with 3 progressive supernatural experiences. Tell me about them.
Joshua Mills: There were 3 very specific signs that began to take place. The first one was the fragrance of Heaven would come, and actually fill the atmosphere. When that began to happen, people began to run to the altars. The second sign that happened was the oil, the supernatural oil began flowing. I would get it a little bit, but it was happening for more of my worship team, the different he explain to me flowing...
Sid Roth: Now when you say flowing, from your hands?
Joshua Mills: You know what, the supernatural oil's literally flowing from our hands. Some would get it on the backs of their necks, some would get it from their foreheads, others would have it flowing from their feet.
Sid Roth: Do you find it's contagious? That it spreads from one person to another?
Joshua Mills: There's always an impartation in the Spirit of God, and so there is an impartation in these things. And it seems
Sid Roth: So people watching us right now, they could start having oil on their palms, or their forehead?
Joshua Mills: Actually I feel right now the Spirit of God, just even as you said that, that there are people at home that are watching this program, right now, and the Glory is beginning to manifest for you. There's supernatural oil, I believe, even beginning to come in your hands right now, as you're watching. Just thank God that His healing oil, His oil of peace, His oil of joy, His oil of goodness is coming, to bring you miracles right now!
Sid Roth: Then this is what, from my viewpoint, you're known as. I mean I would see pictures of you, at the piano, and I've seen a little gold dust on someone's face, etc.
Joshua Mills: Right.
Sid Roth: But you get, I mean you really go for it! I've seen you coated in that gold dust!
Joshua Mills: Well, you know what, when the more you get into the Glory, the more the Glory gets on you, and in you, and around you. And there's times when we go into that Glory, and that was the third sign that God gave us, was the golden Glory began to manifest. It's an awesome and glorious thing. Sometimes it's hard for people to believe it at first when they hear about it, because it seems so unusual. But the truth is, when you get it yourself, you know that it's God, you know that it's the Glory.
Sid Roth: Now Glory causes everything in the Bible to get unstuck for you! For instance, Glory causes creative miracles. I have not seen this, but I have heard of this before. In India, you prayed for someone's eye. What happened?
Joshua Mills: Right. I was praying for a young woman, and as I laid my hands on her eyes, where there are the sockets of her eyes where there were no eyeballs as I laid my hands upon...
Sid Roth: ...and by the way, it's one thing to pray for someone to get rid of their glasses, it's another level to pray for someone that is blind and has eyeballs, but did you hear what he said? No eyeballs! Go ahead!
Joshua Mills: As I laid my hands upon the sockets of her eyes, literally underneath my fingers as I was praying for her, I could feel eyeballs beginning to form under her eyelids. And it was a there's no other way to explain it, but it's a supernatural creative miracle of God. And we've seen these things happen time after time. I've prayed for people that had no muscle in their arm, or very little muscle in their arm, and muscle began to come. I mean, these are the things that God is doing in His Glory. He's taking nothing, and He's making something. He's taking the what looks so impossible, and He's making it supernaturally possible.
Sid Roth: This is probably why you're saying that now, more than any other time, is the time to press in for the Glory!
Joshua Mills: This is the time when God is wanting us to go further in His Glory than ever before, because there's so much new that's available for us. As Believers, sometimes we've been stuck in a rut, or we've been just used to the same old thing. But God's wanting to take us out of what's been familiar or what's been known, and lead us into the dimensions of all that He has for us in the Promises of God.
Sid Roth: Now, you say that God's Glory is always progressive. Explain that.
Joshua Mills: Well, I believe that revelation's always progressive. God takes us from the realms of faith into the realms of anointing, and gives us faith and anointing to lead us into the realms of Glory. Those 3 realms together faith, anointing, and Glory those 3 sides, spiritually speaking, create a new dimension, where we access the more of God, the greater of God, the fullness of God, in all of His goodness and all of His Glory.
Sid Roth: Now that's good that you operate that way! But what about what about you? What about the person that's looking at you right now, and is saying, "Well that's wonderful for Joshua, but can I"? "I haven't been to Bible school", "I'm a housewife", "I don't have enough time to pray like I want to", "Can I move in this"?
Joshua Mills: I want to tell you this right now, that no matter what you've been through, no matter what you've been going through, God wants you to move in His Glory to a place where you begin to live in this realm. There is so much more available, for you. As you begin to press in under the anointing, there's going to be a flow of Glory that begins to take over, and ushers you into the newness of God.
Sid Roth: and the thing that you share, talk, and teach about is in this Glory, it's it just happens! We don't have to do anything like that!
Joshua Mills: Right. There's an ease! There’s a rest in the Glory. It's flowing, in the Glory. It's not working, it's not laboring. "We labor" "to enter into the rest", that's what the Scriptures say. But when we're in the rest, it's in that place we just get to flow, in the goodness of Who God is.
Sid Roth: Now, you have an Angel. As a matter of fact, he has 3 angels that travel with him, but one, in particular, intrigues me! He's an Angel that causes miracles. Joshua has found there is a way to co everyone has an Angel, there is a way to cooperate with your Angels, and a way to muzzle your Angels. We'll talk about that when we come back.
Sid Roth: Joshua, what is your best description of the Glory? What is the Glory?
Joshua Mills: Well, the Glory is God, God is the Glory. It's His essence, it's His nature, His character. All that He is, all that He has that's the Glory. And when we speak about the Glory, the Glory is a person, the Glory, is also a place.
Sid Roth: Now, you did a study that I haven't heard actually I haven't heard anyone do. From the Hebrew and the Greek, there are 3 different words for Glory, and they give you an understanding, when you understand the Hebrew and the Greek of really what the Glory is, and how it manifests. Let's start with "doxa".
Joshua Mills: So "doxa" is a realm of Glory. It's a Greek word, but it's a realm of Glory that literally means "the majesty", "the honor", "the renown of God".
Sid Roth: Give God the Glory.
Joshua Mills: Exactly. And when the doxa Glory comes into an atmosphere, it brings a revelation of Who He is, so it brings the revelation that Yeshua is Messiah! It brings the revelation that He is the King of Kings, and the Lord of Lords! When I was in Natchez, Mississippi several years ago, we were doing a healing meeting, and I was on the keyboard leading worship. And I should have only been leading that worship for about half an hour, 45 minutes, but somewhere in the midst of worship, I felt the whole atmosphere shift. I can feel I can feel that same atmosphere when I talk about it, because my eyes were closed, and yet I knew, that I knew, that I knew that Jesus Christ, the person, and presence of Jesus Christ walked in, from the left side of the room. And He literally walked into the auditorium and began ministering to us.
Sid Roth: Why didn't you open your eyes to look at Him? I would have!
Joshua Mills: Sid, I wish I could have opened my eyes, I don't know what to tell you. I could I couldn't open my eyes. That moment was so holy. It was so awesome that I just couldn't do anything but just be in His presence, knowing that He was ministering, directly to me and to every other person that was in the room.
Sid Roth: How many hours were you there?
Joshua Mills: So, the amazing thing is we were supposed to only be there for a couple of hours of the meeting. But it was all the way from the morning meeting, until that when the evening meeting was supposed to start. That's when we began to notice that we had been in the atmosphere of Glory, all day long.
Sid Roth: Do you think you were changed by just being in that atmosphere?
Joshua Mills: I know that I was changed, because the first meetings that I went to do after that encounter with Jesus, healing miracles began to explode everywhere! There was a whole impartation for creative miracles, healing miracles. The explosion happened because that's what happens when you get into the Glory, something begins to change.
Sid Roth: you know, the Hebrew word for Glory is my favorite word for Glory, "Shekinah"! Tell me about the Shekinah Glory!
Joshua Mills: Shekinah is the visible realm of God. it actually means a "settling" or "dwelling", and so that's when the Glory comes and tangibly, visibly presents itself whether to a person or an atmosphere or situation. In the Shekinah Glory, we see manifestations of all different kinds! The burning bush with Moses was Shekinah Glory. we're seeing this today. I was in Budapest, Hungary last year, and the Shekinah Glory literally began to open up upon a woman, and her feet began to glow like lightbulbs. I'm not talking about just a tiny speck of gold dust.
Sid Roth: Could besides you, could anyone else see this?
Joshua Mills: There were many people that saw this happen. And not only that, they took pictures of her feet shining like light bulbs, through her shoes! It was remarkable!
Sid Roth: And there's a third word for Glory!
Joshua Mills: The third word for Glory is "kavod". The kavod is the "weighty, heavy Glory of God". And when the heavy Glory moves in, you can feel the goodness of His blessing. You can feel the goodness of His strength, His might. You can feel the weight of His favor upon your life. I was in Pensacola, Florida, and the cloud of Glory literally moved into the atmosphere. We could feel that weight. Miracles began to happen of all kinds, people began to give their hearts to Jesus Christ, it was awesome! But something that was so unusual that happened in that moment of the kavod coming. There was a golden handprint that came on my jacket. Now, somebody said to me, "That must be the", "the hand of God". I told them later, "God's hands are a lot bigger than that"! I I think it was my miracle Angel that travels with me. I think that was the handprint that was on my jacket!
Sid Roth: Speaking of Angels, when you were a child, you saw Angels, and you had no handle, no, your parents didn't tell you about it, you didn't know anything. What did you see as a child?
Joshua Mills: I guess I just expected that when I would go to church, that's where Angels would be, because that's where I would see them. Every time when I was in the church in the worship service, I would see the Angels literally flying around the sanctuary of the church. I don't remember them having any wings. They were dressed in beautiful, sparkling, shimmering robes. But they just seemed to fly with ease, and it seemed like their movement was worship to the Lord! I know that the more that we praise and worship, the more it ushers in the Glory. In the presence of God's Glory, is the presence of Angels. In the presence of God's Angels, is the presence of Glory.
Sid Roth: But then when you were older, you were shown exactly your Angels, and they have different distinct functions.
Joshua Mills: I had a dream when I was in my early 20's, and I met my 3 Guardian Angels that had been assigned to my life. They actually came to me, and they told me their names. They told me their very specific assignments. The first Angel, he was assigned to work miracles, creative signs, and wonders in my life. The Second Angel is the Angel of the new song. He brings, He watches over the sounds and the songs of Heaven. In my life, he brings them just like scrolls. He will bring them from Heaven and deposit them into my life, and I'll just begin to sing the new song and the new sounds. The third Angel that God's given me is the Angel of boldness and supernatural strength, and I can feel when he comes. Actually the funny thing is before I met him, I could oftentimes feel his presence, although I didn't realize that's what it was, because there will be times when I'd feel timid in the natural, but when the Angel comes, I can just feel that supernatural boldness, and strength to move into what I'm supposed to move into.
Sid Roth: But the Glory, as you said, is progressive! And the Glory is increasing, to points beyond your wildest imagination, and your wildest imagination, because Joshua found himself in one country, and in a split second, he's in another country! And he didn't share this for many, many years, because frankly, it scared him, and also, he was afraid that many of you wouldn't like the something so biblical! Yeah, that's biblical! It's called "translation". I'll have him explain when we come back.
Sid Roth: Now how would you like to be in the country you're in right now just close your eyes for a second and find yourself in another country? You say, "Oh, that's too outrageous, Sid"! No, it's in the Bible! Tell me a place, Joshua!
Joshua Mills: In Acts chapter 8, verses 39 and 40, it actually tells us that Philip was baptizing an Ethiopian eunuch. And in a moment's notice, the Greek word is "harpazo" the Spirit of God came upon Philip, and literally plucked or caught him away in an instant, so that he could no longer be seen, and he was carried about 20 miles down the road to Azotus.
Sid Roth: Why have you waited so long to talk about this experience, in your heart of hearts?
Joshua Mills: To be quite honest with you, Sid, I think for most Believers, this testimony stretches them, because it seems so absolutely unbelievable that this, this could even be possible!
Sid Roth: But you know what, with the Glory that is coming, Joshua...
Joshua Mills: It's a...
Sid Roth: ...get ready to be. This is minor league compared to what's coming! But go ahead.
Joshua Mills: The Glory that God's bringing us into is a realm of acceleration, supernatural a dimension of transport, and translation in the spirit. God's taking us from one place to another place, out of our past, into the Promises that He has for us. And quite a few years ago I was ministering in a church in Pensacola, Florida, and at the very end of the meeting I'd preached a nice message at the end of the meeting, I had lifted up my hands, and I was declaring different words of knowledge, and just praying over other people, and the Lord had me declare this: "Translation, and Heaven's transportation to the Third Heavens, into the nations". I'd never said that before! And I was thinking about everybody else at the moment, and in an instant, I was taken from that church in Florida. Suddenly I was standing in a whole other location that I was not aware of, an unfamiliar setting, and I'm telling you, I was right there, just like I'm here right now.
Sid Roth: And what was? I have to ask you this. What were your first thoughts when you open your eyes, and you're there? What was going on in here?
Joshua Mills: Well, first of all, I was in an elevator, a little tiny elevator, crowded, full of people, and the thoughts going through my head is, "This is crazy"! I felt a pang of fear hit me! how am I going to get back to Florida? How am I going to get back to my family? What's going on? I mean it's so disorienting when that happens, and yet it was totally God, and I had to, in that moment, learn to rest in what God wanted to do. And so the elevator doors open, I walked out of the elevator into an open lobby, and I walked all the way through, right out onto the street. And at that moment I had to trust that God would lead me and direct me, and that's exactly what He did!
Sid Roth: Now what did, did you hear them speaking a language different than English?
Joshua Mills: Well, I could hear them speaking a foreign language, I had no idea what it was exactly. I didn't understand it, which boggles my mind, because it was a supernatural encounter, and yet I didn't get the language! So I started praying in tongues, and um as I walked down the street, I started seeing different things that looked somewhat familiar from books and postcards that I had seen. And I ended up walking down the street into another building that looked like an office building. And when I walked into that building, I wasn't bothered by anybody, I walked right back into it. I felt the leading of the Lord to go back into an office section past the reception area, and when I walked back there, there was actually what I believe was a church gathering. It was a prayer meeting, and people were praying. And I could feel the Spirit of God in there, and so I joined with them and I started praying. And I prayed in tongues, while they prayed in their language, and I believe some of them were probably praying in tongues as well. But that was all that really happened! And at the very end of you know the prayer meeting, what was happening the craziest thing is I had business cards in my pocket, which I generally don't carry business cards. So I pulled the business cards out of my pocket and I started handing them out, and I handed it to one particular businessman. The way that my faith connected was to go back to the elevator, where I had come in. I know that sounds funny, but the Bible says, "so be it"...
Sid Roth: I think I would have done that!
Joshua Mills: "...so be it", "according to your faith", and that's where my faith was. And so I went back to that elevator, and lifted my hands up, and just began to worship the Lord, and as I did, I was literally back in the church in Florida, where I had started. And the whole thing was so crazy and bizarre, and I was shaking under the presence of God's Glory. I had a hard time thinking about, you know, if I could even communicate it, s speak it, I I couldn't really explain what had happened to me exactly, but the strangest thing happened about 2 weeks following that encounter.
Sid Roth: What happened?
Joshua Mills: Our office literally got an email, from that man that I'd handed my business card to. He wrote to me, thanked me for coming, and invited me to come back anytime. And that just that blew my mind. That was just that just topped the whole thing, you know.
Sid Roth: God is saying to you, "I Am that I Am. All things are possible". Would you I'll tell you what, would you just pray, that we either experience, or be all just open for this Glory? I know you carry an impartation!
Joshua Mills: Absolutely. I would love to. Just lift up your hands right now. Father, in the name of Jesus, God I thank You, that You are releasing Your manifest Glory the doxa, the Shekinah, the kavod in the lives of those that are watching. Lord, I thank You for unfolding accelerated miracles, favor, blessing, increase on each and every one's life, in Jesus' mighty name, Amen.
