Sid: We want everyone everywhere to walk in the supernatural. It should be natural as breathing to walk in the supernatural. And that’s why after thirty-five years of investigating the supernatural I picked out the ten best testimonies with prayers of impartation. You know when the first apostles walked with Jesus they caught something. I believe when you read these stories, you are going to catch something. We were doing the interview with Earthquake Kelley and Earthquake at age four got into drugs, his father beat him daily. He was groomed to be a Voodoo priest for the top president of Haiti, Poppa Doc. And he died, he went to Hell, his life was transformed, he died again, he went to Heaven, his life was even more transformed and boy is your life going to be transformed when you read his story. Let’s go to that excerpt.
Sid: When I interviewed Earthquake Kelley I mean, this man should have been dead multiple times he comes from generations of Voodoo priests. He was groomed to be a Voodoo priest under the President of Haiti, he was involved in crime, he was involved in drugs, he was involved in prostitution, at a young age he was carrying a gun, he tapped into the spirit world and they had him all set up to kill as many young people as possible. But he had an encounter with Jesus. He said, Jesus if you can use me, I’ll make a deal with you, use me more for your kingdom than the devil used me for his kingdom. And he is doing that with a vengeance and the devil was pretty upset with him. Tell me about the day before the accident, your son Scott. You were horsing around in the kitchen. Tell me about that.
Earthquake: Yes, me being a professional fighter and had three sons and they always try to take shots at me to see if they can hit me. And they had a hard time and he had a hard time hitting me and I would tap them a little bit.
Sid: Well were doing this by phone but I’ve seen you and I wouldn’t want to be fighting you at all Earthquake and no why you got your name, but go ahead.
Earthquake: My wife told me, she always tell me to take it easy on our sons you know because a couple of times there I would box with them and stuff like that, and I think I might have tapped them a little bit too hard. She says, oh you are hitting them too hard baby. You are hitting them too hard. Well, I’m just trying to make them tough baby a little bit, you know. But this particular time we were boxing around. My older son Scott and I and having a good time at it and he said, I’m going to get you Pops; I’m going to get you. I said, no you are still smooth, your still smooth, oh yea, oh yea but he stopped laughing and playing then he grabbed me and he grabbed me real tight and started squeezing me real tight and I said, what’s the matter, what’s the matter? He said, Dad I want you to make me a promise, I said what’s the matter something happening at work or something? Boss say something to you or something? He said no, he said I want you to promise me that you would never stop preaching deliverance, never stop helping people. You and Mom have helped people for years and you help people get on their feet, you take people in and Dad I just love you and Mom for what you are doing. He said but promise me that you won’t stop. Now this is difficult for me Sid, to tell it so bear with me you know, but.
Sid: I understand.
Earthquake: He held me and he said Dad, don’t you stop helping people, don’t you stop preaching deliverance. He said Dad you are having an effect on people. You are making lives better, he said don’t let nothing stop you and he was squeezing and said you promise me, I’m not going to turn you loose until you do. Now he was pretty big size too and he had a big grip on me. And I said, okay Son I’m not, I’m not I promise you that nothing’s going to stop me. He let me go and he ran out the room crying. And for him to cry something really has to bother him you know and to cry like that. And when I was trying to catch my breath I was so emotionally drained myself from him squeezing me so tight I tried to go behind him but he went out the door. My wife said, what’s the matter what’s wrong? What’s wrong with him? I said I don’t know, I don’t know he…I asked him if it was something wrong at work and he told me no. He told me to never stop preaching. I told him I wouldn’t. Well the next day I was called to go down, which was the 7th of December 1998 I was called to go into Vegas to preach down there. And while there I got the worse call Sid that anybody would ever want. My wife called me and she was just hysterical. She told me that some of the people that we usually help down the street car jacked him and shot him in the chest at point blank. And killed him and it’s the hardest thing man. To go through that and…
Sid: It’s almost as if he had a premonition something was going to happen.
Earthquake: Excuse me, yea excuse me. But yea, that’s exactly right Sid, exactly right. He, as if him loving Jesus and that the Lord spoke to him, I really believe that God spoke to him to speak to me.
Sid: Okay, so time goes by and you develop a headache, your wife insists you go to the hospital but it turns out to be brain aneurism, tell what you remember.
Earthquake: I remember when I got to the hospital; they put me in the examination room. They start working on me, but I still wasn’t out of the danger with the brain aneurism. They put me in intensive care right by the nurses’ station. They put me on fifteen minute bed watch. Every fifteen minutes around the clock they would come in and check my blood pressure. But I’m not a doctor or anything like that but I do know this after being in the hospital that your blood pressure should not be 200 over 200. And my blood pressure went up that high and they said I was going to die again and one day I slipped away. I did die and this time I found myself in the most beautiful place. Oh, it was so awesome I found myself in paradise standing next to an angel and I’m six five and the angel is at least a foot taller than me. It was so beautiful, I saw the blades of grass, each blade of grass had a jewel or a diamond or emblem in it and it was swaying back and forth. I heard a choir singing. The choir was better than any choir I’ve ever heard and I’ve heard some great choirs. I saw the crystal river it looked like liquid diamonds, Sid as it moved it looked like it was simmering and dancing to the music that was coming from the choir and the praises of the Lord. I saw these giant trees. It looked like big giant weeping willow trees they just swayed like they were praising God. Hallelujah, oh man I still remember it. It is awesome and oh God forgive me. Oh…
Sid: I feel such a presence of God as you’re sharing this and it’s almost like the angels that have been in my office for the last few weeks are bringing that same presence in the studio. Is Heaven what you expected or more?
Earthquake: It’s more, as a Christian and I know this sounds a little funny but, a little corny but in the back of some Bibles’ they try their best to draw Heaven, you know what I mean and you can get those pictures and you get so excited about it. But the artist didn’t even; his paint brush couldn’t even touch what I saw. Glory to God, they did the best they could but I’m telling you unless you have been there and actually seen it for yourself, the awesome radiance the power and the presence. The presence of God, you think that it’s strong in the church service when we really go forth in praising God, all with one accord. You ought to feel it there. Oh, thank you Jesus humph it is so awesome it goes beyond words how to explain the presence of God there. It’s like its fresh, uncut, just straight right off the assembly room floor so to speak. Right there you are right with it and it’s with you and you’re face to face with the blessings of God with the angels. Oh my, oh my God.
Sid: Did you see any people there?
Earthquake: Yes, I did there was an angel there and he said walk around and as I started to walk around I saw that river. And I was there next to the river and I looked to the other side and I saw some of the saints of God that I went to there home going services their memorials and they were there and I was so happy to see one in particular was a former pastor of mine in 2002. He went to be with the Lord and I was there in the home going service and I saw him on the other side. And I saw some to other saints that I knew that went on and I saw my son over there and he saw me.
Sid: You’re talking about the son that was shot point blank and during the carjacking?
Earthquake: Yes, I saw him.
Sid: I can imagine what went on inside of you when you realized that it was your son.
Earthquake: Thank you Jesus, you know why I was so happy Sid, because I did for my children what my mother did for me. I taught them the word. I told them, their others were real stressful but ours upbringing to the word, paid off because to here my son was, had not been shot and killed like so many people have but here my son was with the Lord. Oh that blessed me, so I guess I wanted to get over on the side of the river and hug him and squeeze him and have him show me around the section around the other side of the river which I could not see all of but he said you have to go back Dad. You have to go back and finish the things that you and I talked about. And I was like; no I want to stay here with you. He said, no Dad you remember you gave me your word. You promised me that you would go back and finish teaching deliverance and ministering and helping the people to get here Dad. And that’s what he told me. Oh, thank you Jesus.
Sid: That was just a little bit from Earthquake Kelly story and Earthquake has become a friend of mine. And he has so changed from that man that was going to be the top Voodoo priest for Poppa Doc of Haiti. Do you know when Haiti had the earthquake he called me on the phone and he said, Sid I have got to go there. I must help those people. He walks in such love today. I want him and so many of the others to mentor you. How about Todd White? He’s one of the ten in the book. What compassion that Todd White has. This is what he says. I love it; my faith trumps your unbelief. How would you like to be able to say this? I want to get this book “Supernatural Experiences” in your hand.© Copyright 2011 sidroth, All rights Reserved.
