"It's Supernatural"

Sid Roth welcomes Michael Galiga

without comments

Sid: It’s a matter of fact we want everyone everywhere to win every battle, sound outrageous all you have to do is conquer fear, that’s really the obstacle to faith.  Every time you hear the Messiah talking about areas of the supernatural, He says, “Fear not or your fear has stopped you.  You know I believe that if we could get rid of fear and understand the victory, I mean really understand the victory we have in the invisible world with God’s word, we could win every battle.  My guest, Michael Galiga has lived a lifetime of learning from God, on how to win personally every battle; how to personally conquer fear; how to personally walk in the victory for success in every arena of his life and he’s been called by God to raise you up to that level.  When you look at the circumstances in life, he pointed out to me that the debt situation in the United States is now worse than 1921, were living in the most perilous times in history and fear is epidemic.  We have broken relationships, unemployment, foreclosures, sickness, and yet I say in spite of all of that this is the greatest time to be alive.  Michael Galiga, I want to take you all the way to the age five, I mean at age five I didn’t know the difference between my left and hand my right hand, and you find yourself being translated; tell me about that.

Michael: Well, Sid, yeah I was five year old and it was a very kind of an unusual a scary time for me.  I was in second grade, in Altivus Elementary School, in Phoenix.  My mother had put me in first grade when I was four and I was smaller than the other kids, I was three months premature when I was born, so I was mentally much slower than them and in some of them were eight nine years old.  So I was intimidated almost anywhere I looked but it was about a twenty minute walk to school each day from my house to the school; and I’m walking to school and I just feel this presence of God.  I knew who He was, I did not know any of His names, I just knew that He was God it was completely clear and I just want to tell your listeners that I’m not better than anybody else, but this happened and I reached out to Him and so as I walked to school, as I played on the playground on recess and when I would walk home, I would worship him in every way that a five year old kid could.  Talk to Him, thank Him, thank Him that He was there and wouldn’t let bad things happen to me and would protect me and help me at least, make my grades and pass, but I loved Him.

Sid: But, did you have any real knowledge of God, I was just kind of curious?

Michael: No, Sid my parents were very good people, but there like most people, what little they knew about God, which was very little, they certainly didn’t know him.  They knew something’s about Him, but we didn’t go to church; we didn’t go to Sunday school; they weren’t anti-religion or anti-Jesus, but they just didn’t know; good people though.

Sid: Okay, so one day at age five, you’re playing marbles, I use to play marbles with the other boys and all of a sudden, as you put it time stood still.

Michael: Yeah, and I mean I’m fifty-four years old and a bunch of folks men and women actually played marbles in the day.  And so I’m playing marbles on this huge sidewalk on this second grade classroom and I’m standing up bit watching my buddies play marbles and as you recall, you probably had all your marbles in a sock.  So I’m holding my sock and all the guys are down shooting all there marbles and cat eyes and steles, it’s like when you’ve had surgery and the anesthesiologist looks at you and says, “Okay, count from ten to one, you got ten, nine and it’s all over and your gone.”  And that’s the way it was; one second I was there and another second I was just not there anymore.  The thing that you would call Mike Galiga was gone and then it felt like seven or eight minutes and I was back and I was standing right where I was before and I Iooked around at my buddies and them to go  “Wow, were have you been and what happened?”  And they didn’t say anything, but I felt strangely stronger, much older, in fact I felt like, I didn’t know what I felt until I turned about fifty-three years old and we can get to that story in a minute.  The loop closes at fifty-three, but I felt much stronger, much wiser, still five years old though, but you know I went somewhere Sid, and I knew I went somewhere.

Sid: At that time did you know where you went; did you have any clues where you were going?

Michael: No Sir, I knew that I was gone.  I knew that I went with God somewhere, I knew that I had been gone a lot longer than…

Sid: How did you know? I would have thought, well maybe I imagined it.

Michael: Well, one of the things that happened Sid, is about every six months, for about the time I was five until I was fifty-three, about every six months, God would show up, a few times audibly, and I know that sounds crazy to some people but it happened almost always in my heart enough to write down and this is the word’s He would say, every six months for all those years.  Mike, “Don’t forget that day,” that’s all He would say.  Sometimes I would weep, and go, “Oh Lord, I could never forget that day!”  But every six month’s He would show up and say that.

Sid: And then briefly at age fourteen, you had a very unusual experience with your dog, Dobie.

Michael: Yes, I did of course a lot of families can relate your animals are like family members and Dobie was no exception of that rule.  And he just one day ran off as he did sometimes and just didn’t come back and so I fired up my little Honda trail, my little minibike and tank after tank of gas would search for him.  And I had this elaborate plan and I had a grid sector and I searched everywhere, but the point of the story is that after I think it was after four or five days I just cried out to God.  I was in this field, not far from our house and I cried out with every cell of my body and I just said, “God please help me find my dog.”  I was exhausted and it had been so long that he’s probably dead or run over by a car and not coming back and so as soon as those words came out of my mouth, I had completely surrendered and given up, that was it.  And then there was this voice and it was audible Sid and it was one word, “Stop.”  And it was crystal clear and it was extremely powerful, so much so it shocked me and my hand went off the gas and I gently put the break on an I stopped and as soon as I did about twenty-five feet away there was this giant bush, kind of like a tree type bush, but it was probably twelve, thirteen foot tall, ten foot wide and I heard this whimpering coming from inside the bush.  Now if I hadn’t stopped, I would have never heard it.  So I threw the minibike down, ran over inside the bush and there was Dobie inside the bush; I fought my way inside the bush and he had run away with his leach on, his leach had wrapped around the trunk of this bush.  And I let him loose and he ran home and we had this big party because you know, he had come home.  But I never have forgotten that day.

Sid: So, it’s almost like God’s fingerprint was on everything going on in your life, yet you really did not know Him until you were sixteen and you literally went to a Fellow of Christian Athletes Meeting and got a hold of a track.  Anything supernatural happen or just you finally found the God that’s been dealing with you and you received Him.

Michael: Well, you know the tragedy in all this is and it ends in triumph that when I was sixteen years old and I had never heard about Jesus.  I never heard that He was our Savior and He His blood washed away all your sins, I had never heard that in the United State of America and sixteen year old kid and not at school, didn’t go to church, nice parents, wonderful home.  I had never heard it and this O.U. football player named, Joe Weily came to my high School one night with eleven other O.U. football players and he was everything that I would ever want to be.  He was handsome, he was a four point, CPA student dating a beautiful girl getting ready to get married, and was an All American Football player for O.U.  So he explained to me that night all of this and I accepted Jesus that night.  There were no lightning bolts or anything, there was just total assurance, I had found what I had been looking for.

Sid: You found the God that helped you find your dog when you were fourteen!

Michael: I did, he saved my dog and then He saved me.

Sid: And you’ve had quite a successful career in real estate.  You worked for some of the top corporations in the world.  You consulted for over twenty-five years at the highest levels of corporate real estate nationally and internationally.  Tell me who a few of your clients are of people that you work for.

Michael: Well, out of law school I went to work for Sam Walton and Bud Walton, the founders of Wal-Mart Stores and they and they have passed away now but they and some other people trained me and took me under their wings; and what I didn’t learn in law school, they taught me at Wal-Mart and I bought land bought Wal-Mart stores around the country.

Sid: I bet Sam Walton taught you a lot of good things!

Michael: He did and you know he taught me to pay attention to the little things and the big things take care of themselves.  That was one of the first lessons that he taught me.  And it really served me well, but he was a wonderful man and he treated me very, very well.

Sid: Well, you talked about when you were age five you were translated; you had this vision, you went, time stood still; you went to places you didn’t know what happened, you didn’t know why, but you had constantly think about this event that happened at age five.  And then one day, God explained to you what occurred, tell me.

Michael: Yeah, He did you know I’m fifty-three years old and in fact I’m standing in the same office where this occurred at the moment and one minute I’m working on a real estate here by myself, there is no one else in the office and Sid, it happened the way, that I’m about to describe it.  God’s presence showed up in my office, now I’m a businessman Sid, I’m not a preacher, I’m not an evangelist, I never went to seminary, I’m a normal businessman, pretty good at it and God’s presence shows up in my office, it filled up my office, you couldn’t see it but it was just heavy and it just filled it.  And I just went on the other side of my desk, I got on the floor with my hands out and my face on the floor and His presence just came upon me and I cried out to Him.  And I’d never asked Him, not one time what happened when I was five and it was just the words that were pushed out of my mouth.  And I said, God if you don’t tell me what you landed and what you put on me that day when I was five, I am going to die on the carpet right now.  And then His response was; “Now you’re ready.”

Sid: I’ll tell you what, hold that thought, I recommend, I tell you I’ve read this book on the plane going to Israel and I couldn’t put the book down…
