Sid: My guest is red hot for the Messiah; you must be on the edge of your seat wanting to find out the rest of this story, you see Delores Winder was a strong strong Bible believing Christian but she believe miracles had ceased. But she had her youngest son who was, she didn’t want to die until she knew that he’d be taken care of, you see she had a disease in which all of her bones were deteriorating and she was in such unbearable pain. And they only do this for people that are terminal; they gave her two operations in which they burned out the nerve centers in her brain so that she would not experience pain. It’s not a reversible operation; they only do it if they know that you’re going to die. And her body organs started closing down and she reached a point where they sent her home to die. But there was a woman that she was told about and of course she had heard of this woman, and she thought that she was a big fake, Kathryn Kulman because she would see these miracles and she would see people falling over in the Spirit and she just couldn’t stand it. But she had the distinct impression that if she went to this meeting, not to be healed, but she would find out what to do with her youngest son, Chris and how he’d be taken care of. She literally said to God, she had the chutzpa; she had the nerve to say to God, “I’m not leaving this earth until I know my son is going to be taken care of.” So she went to the Kathryn Kulman meeting. They carried her out of the car, took her in, she couldn’t stand what she was seeing, so she literally closed her eyes, but the Holy Spirit started talking to her and explaining, in fact you had a vision Delores Winder of what would happen to your son. Because the Holy Spirit would be with him where he would go, after you had that vision did that bring you comfort?
Delores: Oh, the peace was so great and I knew I could go home and it wasn’t only for Chris, but for Bill also and that they would be at peace.
Sid: Even though you had that peace you were wrestling with a headache too.
Delores: Oh, I had a horrible headache, yes. But that didn’t bother me because I knew I had my answer for Chris.
Sid: But all of a sudden your legs start there like on fire.
Delores: Yes, and as Dale prepared me to get me out of there my legs were burning and I also knew somebody else existed that night, satan the devil spoke to me and said, “Aren’t you glad you only wear your cast one hour a day now?” Because I only needed it on when I was up and I would sit up for an hour a day with Bill and Chris and I agreed with that voice. And I thought “Oh, I can’t wait to get the cast off.” Because that voice said, “That bone that is sticking out, see he makes it very logical, the bone that is sticking out is putting pressure and that cast is putting pressure on that bone and it’s making your legs burn and it was almost unbearable.” And just as I was ready for Dale to pick me a man was down by my chair and he said to me, “Something’s happening to you.” And I said “My legs are on fire.” And he said, “Would you walk with me, and I said “Get me out of here.” And he helped me up and realized I couldn’t walk and he said, “How can I help you?” And I said, “Put one arm around me and take my other arm and with my cane I can shuffle.” And we started out and he said to me “Have you ever had any surgery?” Well, anyone in my condition you would almost know they had surgery and I said to him, “I have had four spinal fusions and two percutaneous cordotomies.” Now, nobody knew what percutaneous cordotomies were and so they wouldn’t ask any more questions, they would say, “Oh.”
Sid: That’s your way of dismissing this man.
Delores: Yes, and this man turned me to face him and he said, “You’ve had two percutaneous cordotomies and your legs are burning, isn’t that rather strange?”
Sid: Well that’s right you have no feeling in your legs, how could they burn?
Delores: Yeah, and I just looked at him and I thought, “He knows what I’m talking about and nobody ever did” but I wouldn’t respond to him and then he started me walking back out again. We got to the doors to go out the lobby, and he said, “You don’t know what’s happening to you, but you can take your cast off if you want to.” And my instant reaction was, “Dear God, these people are dangerous, this man telling me I could take my cast off who knew nothing about me.” And I looked at him, but I saw something in him that I knew that he knew something I didn’t know and he said to me again, “Would you want to take it off?” And you know Sid, I found out a lot of people don’t want to come out of the illness, but I said to him, “I have been in one of these things for over fifteen years and I’m dying.” And he shook his head and I knew he knew and I said, “Of course I want to take it off.” The next thing I knew he had me in the woman’s restroom and I’m leaning against the wall and Dale’s there and she says, “Get her cast off of her and get her out to me.” But when he walked out that restroom anything that I sensed with him in the present was gone and I’m trying to take my cast off and Dale said, “Delores, this isn’t like you, is something different?” And I said, “No.” She said, “This isn’t like you,” and I started fastening the cast back up and that man came back in. And as soon as he walked through that door I knew, “Get me to him, get me out of this and get me to him.” And he was a doctor from Johns Hopkins Hospital that the Lord sent in there that day, and he came off platform because he had the word of knowledge of my healing.
Sid: So, he picked you out of how many people were in the audience?
Delores: Three thousand.
Sid: And he walks right up to you?
Sid: Because God sent him off the platform with a Word of Knowledge to walk right up to you. Okay, so you got this cast off, what happened next?
Delores: Then an usher carried me in and Kathryn was waiting for him and turned and said, “What do you have their doctor?” And as she said, that was the first I knew that he was a doctor and he said, a spine. She said, “Bring her here immediately.” And they took me up on platform. And Sid, I was so in my traditional way, and I thought, “Oh, I’m being put in that side show, and all I could think was, “Well at least nobody here knows me but Dale.” Kathryn made me give my name and where I lived before I left the platform and later she said to me, “You know why I did that don’t you, pride.” And they got me up on platform and she said to the doctor, Richard O’Ellen, “Tell the people what’s wrong.” And he said, “All I know is that she has had four spinal fusions and percutaneous cordotomies and her legs are on fire and that’s not possible.” And he had two other men on stage hold me up while he went to the mike and they had me in an awkward position and I thought if they let go of me I’m going to fall and I’ll fall flat on my face. And so I had to push my one foot out to kind of get a balance and she I did it came up off the floor and when it came down I thought, “I feel the floor, no, you can’t feel the floor.” But again I had to get the other foot out because the right leg went out too far, and I pulled my left leg up and it came off the floor and I felt the floor. And I said, “I can’t feel the floor.” But all of a sudden the feeling came in my finger tips, my right side, my arm and hands was also free of any feeling. And feeling started in my finger tips in my right hand and started coming up and when it got up to my waist, they said I started screaming, “I can feel, I can feel.” And that didn’t mean anything to her because she had no idea what he was talking about. And she said to me, “Walk.” And I told her, I can’t. And she said again, “Walk.” And as I started walking they said, “I ran, came back and she said…
Sid: You had to be carried into the meeting, and you ran?
Delores: Yes, yes, and when I got back to where she was she said, “Bend over.” And all the further the doctors bend me was a very short ways and they couldn’t bend me anymore. And I started bending over realizing I had no pain, I had feeling and I bent over and she said, “Do it again, and the second time I did it, I touched the floor with my hands and from then on it was very difficult for me because I didn’t really, I was in such a fog by that time.
Sid: Did she pray for you?
Delores: No, no and then she said to me, “Just turn around.” And I turned around and when I did one of the doctors who were sitting on platform, who did not like any of this at all and thought it was a plant and this was a show, and he said, “He happened to look because just a real hush fell.” And when it fell, he said, “He looked up and he said he saw my body straightening.” And he introduced me the next year at the Methodist conference and said, “You know, I saw it happen, no one can say it doesn’t.” But anyway, she touched me and I went down and when they got me up she said…
Sid: But wait a second, you didn’t believe, you thought that was all fake when people were falling down when she touched them.
Delores: In my world this is what I believed.
Sid: I’ll tell you what, I just hate to do it, but we have to stop right now, but wait until you read the full story…© Copyright 2011 sidroth, All rights Reserved. Written For: Sid Roth
