Sid: I’ve got a young man that’s red hot for the Messiah on the phone his name if Rick Taylor and he’s the head of the healing rooms of Santa Maria Valley, California where there’s literally an outbreak of the miraculous. And I would say of all…the people are being healed of everything but of all the conditions that people are being healed of cancer seems to be the most dominate. What other conditions seem to be real dominate Rick as far as healings?
Rick: Well gosh we’re just seeing so much! Well we’ve seen well we had one lady healed of Parkinson’s disease which there’s no cure for. We have people healed of diabetes, Hepatitis C healed. This week alone we had a woman who came in who had a broken leg; she had a brace on her leg and lots of pain and the Lord just healed her. She took the brace off and she’s walking normally so it’s just amazing what we’re seeing. We had another woman that you just mentioned cancer another, woman came in this week who let us know that she was healed of cancer just another one. And the power of God hit her she had breast cancer and it actually went into her liver and the Lord has totally healed her. So we’re just seeing you name it we’ve had people healed of all sorts of allergies.
Sid: And the doctors are beginning to send their patients and even coming in themselves?
Rick: We have tremendous favor with doctors, doctors are scratching their heads they can’t figure out what’s happening all they can say is “There’s miracles happening.” The doctors when they can’t do anything with their patients when they’ve tried all they can do we’ve had clinics call us and doctors ask “Can we send you patients?” Because they’ve heard what’s happening here the supernatural things God is doing here.
Sid: You’ve got to tell me about that hip that was recreated.
Rick: We had a man who came in who could not walk his entire hip was disintegrated it had caused him just tremendous pain. They would allow him 1 Cortisone shot a month and he said that “That would ease the pain for about a day and half.” But he was in tremendous pain, doctors could do nothing for him. Well they heard about us, the wife brings him in and team’s praying for him. You know our team their bold they just ask God to give this man a brand new hip. We believe God has a parts store in heaven full of body parts and we just down load a hip for this man. And the team asked “Well how do you feel?” And the man said “Well you know the pains a little bit better but to tell you the truth there’s no difference.” Well this man goes home and while he was sleeping God was creating a hip. God did a miracle overnight. When he woke up the next morning he had absolutely no pain he goes “Man this is unusual.” So he thought he’d stand up and so he stood up and he began to walk around the room and he began to walk normally. He went to his doctor, his doctor x-rayed him he’s got a brand new hip.
Sid: Now many of the miracles that happen in your healing rooms to be quite candid with you there’s a lot of healing evangelists and they stand up and someone comes forward and says I’ve been healed of this and I’ve been healed of that, but have you had these healings medically verified?
Rick: Definitely see we’re not like evangelists that go to a city and they’re there for a couple of days and they leave, we’re here we’re not going anywhere. So we definitely hear of the documented healings not only from the person but they bring in the documented proof from their doctors x-rays and things like that.
Sid: Okay on yesterday’s broadcast your wife Lori this was in ’96 had an angelic visitation, lights came on in the room but you’re out in the country and there are no lights. And then you started having a series of visitations it looked like a lion went right through you. Well why would God do this?
Rick: You know what I don’t know God is a supernatural God and His ways are not our ways, you know His thoughts are not our thoughts. You know at the time I did not tell a person because no one would have believed me. And so we kind of kept it to ourselves but this was so real it scared me to death. Now after this lion ran right through me and right out my back wall a couple of nights later we were at a church visiting and there was a prophetic minister there and he stood me up and he prophesied over me. He said “I see the Lion of the Tribe of Judah entering into you.” And I didn’t know what the meant at the time. Then you know a few night later again it all happened at night when you’re sleeping. A few nights later I’m asleep I’m laying on my back all of a sudden and all of a sudden I have an encounter. And again I don’t know if it was the Lord Jesus Himself or if it was an angel but I was literally grabbed by the shoulders and set up in bed while this person was talking to me. Now you got to understand that I was sound asleep and I didn’t know at the time if this is really happening or if this is a dream but all of a sudden the reality of “This is happening.” I’m feeling hands on me, I’m hearing voice speak to me. And the only thing that I could remember Him saying was “I told you I was going to raise you up suddenly didn’t I.” And I remember Him talking to me and said “Yes, You told me that because that was prophesied over us.” And then all of a sudden He just left. And I just sat up in bed I think for an hour or 2 just shaking trembling and going “Did this really happen?” Yeah it was a powerful encounter with the Lord. The interesting thing about this Lori and I were talking about these visitations and we thought this is 1996 we thought “Man this is going to be a power year.” But it just so happened that right after those visitations we began to…the Lord began to really cause us a cutting in our life. What I mean by that is that our lives were turned upside down. We went through major trials, you know I had a wonderful job with a high position and our company was taking over and I found myself on the bottom of the ladder again. All sorts of things begin to happen in our church and our marriage and things just started falling apart. Looking back at it we understood that God first had to kill us, He can’t use us unless we’re completely dead. When he calls us and He wants to raise us up there’s a death period. He has to kill our pride, he has to kill who we are…
Sid: Isn’t it amazing here you have these prophesies, these angelic types of visitation and you think “Boy now you’re ready to be like a Kathryn Kuhlman or a Benny Hinn and all of a sudden rather than what you were expecting all hell broke loose.
Rick: That’s right. For about 18 months I didn’t sense God’s presence, in worship I couldn’t sense Him, the word just dried up and I felt like God totally left me. But again looking back on it He had to do that He had to…
Sid: What was the first breakthrough you had then?
Rick: Well you know it was January of 1998 I believe it was the Lord said and I haven’t heard His voice in almost 18 months and all of a sudden He spoke to me and He said “This is going to be a year of change.” Then a few weeks after that the Lord began to speak to me and I could hear His voice again and He began to tell me “I want you to quit your job.” And at the same time He was talking to my wife Lori and telling her “Quit your job I have something else for you.” And we were afraid to talk to each other about it because you know we didn’t know if we were crazy or what. I overheard her speaking to someone on the phone about this and I said “We need to talk.” And it was just shortly after that we gave our notice to our jobs and we stepped out in faith and God began to open the nations to us. And we began to do itinerant ministry and God just began to launch us in the things that He had for us. But it took a death experience but what the Lord showed us that after the death experience comes the resurrection. And we’re different people than we were before that experience.
Sid: You probably couldn’t handle it or no I’ll go a step further if you hadn’t had what you call this death to self experience I don’t think you’d have the outbreak of the miraculous in your healing rooms.
Rick: I think you’re right and I probably wouldn’t have all of the compassion for those that are experiencing some of the things that I experienced then, I can relate to them
Sid: Did you out of curiosity go to any of these great revivals that were going on anywhere in the world?
Rick: Well yes in you know in 1994 my life was a majorly impacted by the Toronto Outpouring. I had a power encounter that radically changed my life. You know I knew Jesus as my Lord and Savior, I knew God as my Heavenly Father, but I never really had an experience with the power of the Holy Spirit and the person of the Holy Spirit. But I had such an amazing power encounter.
Sid: We’re you spirit filled Charismatic at the time?
Rick: I actually was I did…
Sid: Did you speak in tongues?
Rick: I did I spoke in tongues but this was totally completely different than anything that I’ve ever experienced in my life.
Sid: When you see a power encounter I know that it’s hard to put it in words but please.
Rick: Well what happened is the power of God came on me and I fell down on the floor and I was glued to the floor probably for about an hour I could not get up.
Sid: If you had pushed do you think you could have?
Rick: No I could not get up whatsoever. The amazing thing is I didn’t even want to get up it was like I can’t explain the feeling. All I know is I was in the power and the presence of a person and such a closeness that I never experienced before. And I remember just laying there in the power and just waves of energy was going through my body. Something was taking place inside of me which I didn’t understand at the time. For…
Sid: This anointing Mishpochah that Rick picked up he’s found it’s transferable to all the people in his healing room and as he teaches people get healed, the anointing is transferred…
