“The food for your spirit is the Bible. Why should you walk around starving everyday?” – Sid Roth
“I believe with every fiber of my being that the dividing line of the true church and the counterfeit church in the last days will be your position on the Jew and Israel.” – Sid Roth
Pastor Jim and Lori Bakker welcomed Sid Roth, host of the TV program “It’s Supernatural” and author of “They Thought for Themselves.” Pastor Jim shared how he wanted to use the title “Rabbi” but Mr. Roth refused to accept it explaining the word “Rabbi” means exalted teacher and Jesus, not he, was the exalted teacher. Pastor Jim then stated how humble his guest was and very different from other famous people who turn out not to be as marvelous in person as portrayed in their public image. He then said he finds his friend Sid Roth truly amazing and added that he loves his television program.
The two discussed “The Harbinger” and the fact that author Rabbi Jonathan Cahn appeared on “It’s Supernatural” long before the release of his book. Mr. Roth wanted him on the show because he truly believed the message came from God. In line with divine warnings, Sid told of a dream in which he spoke the words “Jesus is coming back soon” three times just prior to waking up. He took it as a sign that God gave him a passion to spread that message far and wide, particularly to Jewish people.
He travels the world targeting cities with large Jewish populations and places ads in Jewish newspapers explaining that he, an Israeli-American citizen, has studied the paranormal for more than 30 years and will present findings in a public lecture. By design, the sales pitches do not mention his Christian faith or Jesus since most Jews would be turned off by that and not attend. He was unsure how his first meeting would go, but more than 400 people showed up and many of them, after listening and hearing his message, accepted Jesus afterward.
Mr. Roth has a great love for his people who face punishment because of their rejection of Jesus, but he firmly believes the Bible’s prophecies that, even in their rebellion, his people serve as blessings to the rest of the nations. Once they submit to, and accept, Jesus as the Messiah, he said, more favor will come to them and through them, to the rest of the world. Pastor Jim noted that Jews are coming to Jesus by the thousands. Mr. Roth agreed and added that many of them are having life changing dreams about Jesus.
The host of “It’s Supernatural” explained that those who want to escape deception at this time must comprehend the plan God has for the Jewish people and Israel. They must also recognize and act on the Biblical command found in Romans 11:11 to “provoke Jews to jealousy” and find ways to make them yearn to walk in God’s presence.
