Sid: I have on the telephone I’m so excited because maybe about 6 months ago I read a book by Carlos Annacondia. The title is “Listen to Me Satan” the subtitle “Exercising Authority Over the Devil in Jesus Name.” Now the longest standing revival I believe in the history of the world is going on in Argentina it’s been going strong for at least 17 years. And this Carlos Annacondia is the one attributed to the one that God used to start this. And I have one the telephone and we will be speaking later this week with Carlos by faith. But I have on the telephone, and see he only speaks Spanish so you can see why it will be a little difficult. I have on the telephone Rebecca Macchi. Now Rebecca is a close friend of Carlos and she has witnessed with her very eyes some of the greatest miracles of the century. And because she speaks English I have her on the telephone. Rebecca so we can got to know you just a little bit your parents were missionaries to South America and you actually began preaching at age 13. But before we went on the air you were telling me about how your father really moved in the supernatural. He prayed for 2 dead people that came back to life tell me about that.
Rebecca: Yes very exciting. When I was about 7 years old I saw…witnessed my first miracle. There was a child of a pastor in a village that died and so we went to this village for the funeral and anyway when one knows God and knows the power and the presence of God over a person’s life you can sense that some things going to happen at certain times. And so we went into this church at the village we arrived in. He stood at the door praying for and talking with this pastor and I’m curious you know how children are I went to see the little baby and it was not in the casket they had it couldn’t afford at that point a casket apparently but any way it was on the table wrapped in sheets and you know they had candles and flowers all around the baby and it was dead. And so everybody was on the front rows crying and you know and I just looked at the baby because I had never seen a dead child before so I was just looking at it. And all of a sudden I sense the presence of God and at that age I had already experienced you know tremendous revivals and tremendous meetings in the tents where God’s presence would show up. So immediately I related that to my dad because you know God used him in that area so I knew something was going to happen. So I turned around and looked he was still speaking with the minister at the door and all of a sudden he turned around and began to walk toward the table where this baby was. He walked straight to the table grabbed the baby literally and picked it up and said “In the Name of Jesus I command the spirit of death to leave and I command in the Name of Jesus life to come into this child.” Kind of the words of what he spoke and immediately the baby began to scream and cry (Laughing). Of course it was shocking for everyone and he said “This baby is not dead this baby is alive!” You know but that was one of my first exciting moments of my life you know. And it gave me a deep hunger in my heart and in my spirit to see God do things like this because I believe in a God of miracles, signs and wonders.
Sid: Now you literally saw when your parents needed money and they prayed money comes from heaven. What do you mean about that?
Rebecca: Most missionaries go through at that point in time but thank God it’s different nowadays but the founding missionaries they went through a lot of times of testing….financial testing as you call it (Laughing). And at this point we had been like a week our food was giving out and you know my mother kept on asking my father you know “Have we gotten any mail, has anyone sent something? You know kept on asking and he says “It’s coming it’s coming he’d say that every day and soon she said “You better do something you know.” And He said “Oh yes I’ll get some in fact I’ll go get some groceries. And so in fact I said “Dad can I go with you?” And so we went out and he closed the door and he stood on the steps of the house where we lived and looked up in the sky and I guess he was praying at this point. And I said “Dad are we going to the store?” He said “Yeah just wait a minute.” The next thing I know there’s this whirlwind that you know I had to close my eyes because there’s a lot of dust so I closed my eyes because of these whirlwind was coming, dust wind basically. And the next thing I know there’s this “Look up there Rebecca.” And so I looked up and floating toward us was this bunch of paper you know it looked like paper but anyway when it fell and the wind totally went away it was totally calm it was money. And it was 500 pesos at that time and so it was a tremendous miracle financial miracle at that point.
Sid: So you’ve seen the dead raise, money come from heaven that must have really stretched your faith as a young child coming from a heritage like that. But when you were on the platform with Carlos Annacondia, which you do quite often and you hear him stand up and say the title of his book “Listen to Me Satan.” I mean he speaks with such authority over the devil. What have you witnessed happening to people with your very eyes?
Rebecca: Well what happens a lot of times God can be totally clear like a sunny day I’ve seen this happen a couple of times. A sunny day and when that happens all of a sudden clouds, dark clouds, appear and it becomes very apparent that He is dealing with the darkness over that city and the principalities that are over that city. And it’s very real if any one…out there don’t believe in the supernatural you know in one of his meetings or in evil manifestations.
Sid: So you can see.
Rebecca: You can see it.
Sid: It’s like a fight that’s going on between the powers of darkness and God.
Sid: And so what happens when those storm clouds gather and it becomes that encounter?
Rebecca: A lot of people begin to fall out in the Spirit but basically people from all over thousands and thousands of people at his meetings. People who are have been possessed or tormented by evil spirits and immediately begin to scream, begin to manifest fall out and basically various you know manifestations of evil appear. And so to have a team of usually 500 in that country but in other countries less but they pick these people up literally and they call them camareros. They pick them up and put them over their heads and take them straight to the tent. They have a tent on one side for woman and they another side for the men and they have 3 people that for each person that gets each people delivered by the scriptures you know by casting out the evil forces the evil spirits in the person.
Sid: Now here like in the United States and Canada we don’t see a whole lot of that have the demons just gone to Argentina (Laughing) or do we have them here? How come we don’t see that here that much?
Rebecca: No here our demons are very nice and very cultured (Laughing).
Rebecca: And very composed the rest of them that are not and do not know how to behave nicely are basically in institutions.
Rebecca: Here the demons are very intelligent demons they’re very conniving and very smart. They attack in a different way.
Sid: Now after Carlos prays and the people with demons manifest and they go to a tent and they’re set free I understand that the whole spiritual atmosphere over the meeting changes and it’s so easy for them to throw the net out and for people to come to the Lord.
Rebecca: Oh yes in Mar del Plata this was one of his first largest meetings that he had. He had 50,000 people saved in one night.
Sid: My goodness 50,000 in one night.
Rebecca: Like a month after his ministry began.
Sid: But after he gets rid of evil so to speak through his authority people want to come to the Lord.
Rebecca: Oh yes people run to the Lord! (Laughing)
Sid: What about creative miracles I understand a lot of babies with say Down Syndrome?
Rebecca: Oh yes.
Sid: They get healed but it’s not so much a gradual healing have you actually seen the features of the baby’s faces change before your very eyes?
Rebecca: Well what happens is they fall under the power of God and it’s like for example there little tongues their little tongues usually the Down Syndrome children are kind of hanging out sort of so to speak you know.
Rebecca: It’s like somebody’s grabs their tongue and stretches it like you stretch a rubber band and then you let it loose the rubber band you let it loose.
Sid: Hm hm.
Rebecca: That will actually kind of like their tongue is stretched and it pops back into their mouth its incredible (Laughing) you know to see and the little eyes they totally change.
Sid: What happens to their eyes?
Rebecca: Well they have you know the special little eyes they have a change comes over their eye features that’s very apparent.
Sid: Well what happens to their thinking ability because you know many are not able to think at a level of a normal person?
Rebecca: That’s what happens they come to a normal IQ level.
Sid: Instantly or gradually?
Rebecca: Once I’ve seen it instantly but there’s some…
Sid: What about the shapes of their heads sometimes the shapes of their head are not correct?
Rebecca: (Laughing) God just does it it’s supernatural.
Sid: Have you seen the shapes of their head change before your eyes, their eyes change before your eyes?
Rebecca: Yes but it’s unexplainable to the natural to one naturally you know you can’t explain it.
Sid: How many have you see like this?
Rebecca: Well this was in one meeting that I saw this and there was at least 6 children went up and they called out of the whole meeting. Now this has happened a lot in Japan where he’s been an incredible Down Syndrome…
Sid: Rebecca unfortunately we’re out of time right now I mean I want to talk about these people that instantly that are bald and they get hair back. I mean this is hard for us to believe here in the United States but we’ll have you back on tomorrow’s broadcast.
