Sid: My guest Dr. Susan Jacob is as red hot as they come. She’s a Jewish believer in Messiah and I want you to capture what would happen Mishpochah if a couple hundred thousand American Jews become like Dr. Susan Jacob? What would happen when these red hot Jewish believers come into the congregation and the anointing that ancient Jewish anointing splashes on the lukewarm American Christians? I say these lukewarm American Christians are going to get red hot and the two together are what Paul was talking about in that one new man of the book of Ephesians; where Jesus came to breakdown that middle wall of separations between Jews and Gentiles to form one new man. And the one new man is the true Body of Messiah; and we’re about ready to have the greatest outpouring of God’s Spirit in history. And the catalyst is reaching the Jew; and that’s why even in the scriptures God says in Romans 11:11 “Salvation has come the Gentile to provoke the Jew to jealousy.” And it also says in Roman’s 11 “Partial blindness is on the eyes of the Jewish people until a set time in history occurs.” It’s called the fullness of the Gentiles Age. And as far as I’m concerned when the spiritual scales come off of the eyes of Gentile Christians and they see their God called destiny. And they see they’re something more to life than just going to church on Sunday and acting like the world the rest of the time we’re going to have what Paul calls the glorious Church. And that’s why God instructed me to write a book called “They Thought for Themselves.” It’s 10 testimonies of Jewish people that dared to confront the forbidden. They’re Jewish people from every possible walk of life. Jewish People involved in the New Age; Jewish people that are PhD’s; there’s Jewish people that are from an atheist to an Orthodox Jewish background. All had one thing in common; they came to know the Messiah. And the book is written in such a readable easy fashion that a Jewish person will start reading it and even though scripture is worked into the story line they will not be able to put it down until they finish these stories. And there’s enough information coated with your prayers that these Jewish people will be red hot for the Messiah. So what are you doing about Roman’s 11:11 “Salvation has come to you to provoke the Jew to jealousy.” Do you think it’s an accident that the Jewish doctor that you know; the Jewish former classmate that you know; the Jewish neighbor that you know; the Jewish attorney that you know; the Jewish dentist that you know? No, it’s not an accident… Now I hope you’ve been listening all this week to Dr. Susan Jacob as the two of us have been finding out what is normal Christianity; I’m not talking about 21st century American version of Christianity; I’m talking about Bible Christianity. Susan your life has been threatened so many times. Why you’re such a nice person; why do people want to kill you?
Susan: Because of the good news; because of Jesus Christ! Many of these Hindu Militants worship the 333 million gods and Muslims worship Allah. So when the good news is being proclaimed and lives are being changed when people get saved and healed they are being provoked and they are being infuriated and filled with rage and fury because lives are being changed and transformed.
Sid: Tell me about the time that they tried to poison you.
Susan: One time they thought that this is strange that all the time that we are happy; miracles are taking place in our home. So the neighbor who is a Hindu militant and also Muslims they did witchcraft and poisoned my water. God very clearly spoke to us to pray over the water and pour it back into the well; that’s all we knew how to do. And whatever evil power was in there dissipated and those who were trying to kill us saw what God did and we were still alive and not dead because Jesus is alive!
Sid: And what happened to the ones that saw that?
Susan: They had many questions; the Lord began touching many of them who did this to us. And while we were praying and worshiping a lot of witchcraft popped out from the ground and those who harmed us they turned around and gave their hearts to Jesus Christ! And they saw that they cannot touch God’s anointed because “The one that is in us is greater than the one that is in the world.”
Sid: Out of curiosity your family did not get sick but happened to them? Did they get sick?
Susan: They got very sick; the harm went back to them; they were deteriorating and then they asked us to pray for them. So the Lord would send us there and we prayed and we said “Don’t hurt God’s people and led them to the Lord.” And many of them accepted Jesus Christ as their personal Savior.
Sid: Now if that’s not enough Mishpochah; tell me the time the militant threw you into the ocean to kill you.
Susan: Yeah, I began to evangelize and we were stoned. I was not afraid I’m reminded of 2nd Timothy 1:7 “For I have not given you a spirit of fear; but of power and of love and of sound mind.” Psalm 91 says “He has given us authority to trample over serpents and scorpions.” So I went door knocking and shared the good news about Jesus Christ and…
Sid: Are you telling me you were literally stoned?
Sid: What did they do just pick up stones and throw rocks.
Susan: Picked up rocks and kicked us out of the place.
Susan: When we went door knocking to evangelize.
Sid: Okay, go ahead.
Susan: And they were so furious filled with anger that they said “We have to get rid of this people. Grabbed us came about midnight to our home and threw me in the ocean. And I did not know how to swim but I knew that there’s a God who can save me. As I was sinking and drowning I said “Lord, if you’re alive please save my life and I will serve You for the rest of my life.” I felt a hand pull me out of the ocean and threw me on the shore; the angel of the Lord encamps around those that fear Him. He sent His angels. I memorized scriptures so in times of danger and persecution these scriptures come into my heart and then I proclaim it; I receive it and I believe in Jesus. And He saved my life; He sends angels and I was pulled out of the ocean in the middle of the night God saved me.
Sid: Susan I have to ask you something. It’s exciting when God saves you but this has happened many times to you. Why do you… you’ve done more than most people why don’t you just keep quiet about Jesus?
Susan: Oh, I will never keep quiet. He gave His life; He gave everything for me and that is why I live, I live I live because He lives and my life is for Him; my very existence; my heartbeat is in His hands. I can dry any minute now but I will proclaim about my Messiah Jesus Christ that He died, He’s risen; He is alive forevermore till my last breath! Because He gave me all and I need to do something for this Savior who died on Calvary.
Sid: Susan do you have any spiritual discernment as to when Jesus is going to return?
Susan: No, I don’t know when He’s coming but I do know He is coming.
Sid: You had a heavenly visitation; tell me about that.
Susan: Yes, I prayed to Lord “What will happen to my body?” I was lifted up from this place and He took me to heaven. And I saw the angels singing and worshiping and I saw my body being transformed; gloried. My body is not like what I see now; it’s different. And…
Sid: How would it be different? I see the way your body is now because we met in person; how will it be different?
Susan: I was neither a male or female it was gloried; it was all like glory shining!
Sid: But your shining quite a bit now; but you were saying you were shinning more?
Susan: It was just like seeing the sunlight; it was so glorified; it was so beautiful and I was flying to heaven it was so beautiful. Some of these you can’t even you know they’re not like diamonds and pearls and precious stones that you see here. They are so precious and beautiful I’m looking forward to that day.
Sid: When you were in heaven did the Lord tell you anything else?
Susan: No, I was just having a good time there and I was just standing there in awe. And you know spellbound to see the beauty like I asked the Lord “What is it like to be there?” So that is why He took me up there to see what it is like to out there.
Sid: Now I’ve been told that many people that have these heavenly visitations don’t want to come back to earth. What about you?
Susan: Yes I really definitely didn’t want to come back it was beautiful.
Sid: (Laughing) Well, Mishpochah Susan came back and you’re here for a purpose, He who wins souls is wise. The only things that you’re going to take to heaven with you is the crowns for those that came to know the Messiah for the result of your life. We’re living in the fullness of the Gentle age right now; another definition to the word fullness from the Greek is “The Maturity.” And it’s time this is God’s moment in history to have mercy on Israel. God has destined you in a country that is filled with Jewish people; that as Jonah says they don’t know their left hand from their right hand when it comes to the Messiah.
