SID: Yes. You heard me right. A baby that had been dead for a year comes back to life? What are you talking about, James?

JAMES: It was amazing, man. It was a few years ago now. It was 2000, I believe in '12. It was unbelievable. We went on a missions trip to Ghana. We were doing crusades at night, and we were going in the villages in the day. And this one morning I woke up. As soon as I sat up in my bed, I just felt this fire surging through my body. And I actually went to the people that came on the trip, and I said, "Look, we're all going into villages today, asking for the sickest person we could find to just believe that God would heal him."I took a couple of pastors from the church there in Ghana with me. We went up about the new—

SID: Now, this was a big church.

JAMES: Yeah. Royalhouse Chapel, huge church in Ghana, West Africa. And I asked the pastor with me, "Can you take the meto the hardest area?"Everybody wants to run from... I'm like bring it on. And it was noon hour. All the Muslims were washing their hands, getting ready to pray and chant. And as I walked up, many times, John 5 says, "Jesus said to the father, 'I do what I see my father do.'" So many times. I'll prophetically ask God, what are you doing here? I want to know where you are in the room so I can go there. I see a woman off to the side laying on a bench. And I see Jesus kneeling next to her holding like almost her midsection. And I said to the pastors, "I don't know what's going on with, Jesus is over there. That's where we need to be."And it was amazing. And when we walked up, we asked her to stand up. She woke up from her nap, and when she stood up, she had a purple dress on and the gown flowed, and you could tell she was very pregnant, like last trimester, easy. And I said through the interpreter, "Here's the vision I saw over you. I saw a man, Jesus." She didn't know the Lord. I'm not sure if she was Muslim or whatever. And then we asked her, "What do you want the Lord to do for you?" She told me that the baby that she had had been dead for one year, that witch doctors performed a ceremony and literally cursed her womb never to open again. And she said that it's been the biggest pain in her life and caused the deepest sorrow. And I said, "Look, we're going to pray right now." To be honest with you! wanted to just curse the curse that was on her womb. I wasn't even thinking like, resurrection. I was just thinking, let's just curse what the devil tried to do. And we prayed in the power of God. I cursed the curse on that womb as we laid hands. And her stomach was hard as a rock. And all of a sudden when I said, "I curse the curse on this woman, I command a life in her womb," and I yelled, "Now in Jesus' name." And I'm going to tell you something, the whole stomach started moving. She started jumping. It was unbelievable.

SID: This child had been dead. By the way, I have to tell you, James, I checked [on]this story with a doctor. And he said, "Well, that would be highly unusual, but it is possible."

JAMES: Wow. Yeah.

SID: Now do you know if she eventually had the baby?

JAMES: Yes. When I got home, the pastors... Well, we led her to the Lord. And the pastors—

SID: Well, that's good.

JAMES: Yeah. Number one. And then the pastors brought her back to the main sanctuary and started working with her, and about two months after I came home, I got an email from one of the pastors saying she sure enough delivered a healthy baby boy. And it was just a miracle from God.

SID:16 years old, your first experience with what you call, and the Bible calls the fire of God.

JAMES: Wow. No one in my family has ever been saved. I was never raised in church. And my mom was in... Still nobody. I mean, it's unbelievable. I got invited to a service. I was actually on drugs one night with my friend, and I was passing out on his couch. And his mom looked over to me and said, "Do you know who Jesus is?" And I had no clue. I needed a ride to Six Flags. She invited me to church if I wanted a ride. I went to church that night. I heard a testimony of a gang member that got completely set free. And she kept telling me that Jesus did this. I came home that night, the woman hands me a Bible. I never opened it up. I walked in my mom's house. She was drunk, passed out in front of me. I turned to the left in the kitchen. I had the Bible in front of me, and I just started thinking, is he real? Did he really set that gang member free? And if he's real, I want to know. And so without any understanding of the gospel, never reading the Bible in my life, I put my hand on the Bible. I looked up to heaven and I said, "Jesus, if you're real, reveal yourself to me." And right at that moment, I saw a lightning bolt come out of heaven, and it just hit me right here. And I fell on the floor, and I was screaming in the power. And I just felt so empty. I felt like—

SID: Why were you screaming?

JAMES: Because I could feel the surge in my body. It was like a feeling I've never felt. I was powerless. I was on the floor yelling as I felt this fire inside of my heart. And I started crying. I started saying, "Jesus, you're real. Jesus, you're real." And I just knew that he was real. And he was telling me, because my whole thing I said to him was, "If you're real, then I'm going to give the rest of my life to tell people who you are. Show me if you're real. I don't want to live on this Earth if you're not."

SID: You teach and demonstrate the fire of God. You've been baptized in water and fire, in the spirit in fire. What is the fire of God? And what are the benefits of it?
