    Club Meth to Christ

    Club Meth to Christ

    Rodney miraculously survived an explosion that was ignited when he was cooking meth. He emerged covered in flames, sought help from strangers, and ultimately found himself in an ambulance headed for a burn unit. After approximately 15 close calls with drug overdose, and multiple car accidents, this event was the catalyst for his full and complete surrender to Jesus Christ. Today Rodney is a full time Evangelist who travels the country speaking and ministering to the prison population, youth, and anyone who will listen to his miraculous testimony of redemption, deliverance, and healing. His heart's mission is for others to find the same freedom and a new life with Jesus Christ. Regardless of what type of bondage you are in, there is HOPE for you in Christ!
    In this episode Rodney shares:
    -the traumatic experience of being molested at the early age of 3 and some of the effects
    -hearing God's voice and promise at a young that Rodney would serve in ministry
    -the path that led to meth, the heart aching losses of friends and too many close calls
    -the explosion, critical injuries, and the path to a new identity in Christ
    -how God has led him into ministry after the most unexpected journey
    -how he has helped other children who have been violated to find healing and comfort by sharing his story of hope and healing
    -a praise report of another ministry that was sparked by his testimony (fruit!)
    -an invitation to accept Jesus Christ and begin your own journey of healing and a new life
    John 10:10 NIV "The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full."

    Urgent Message from Jesus - with John Carter

    Urgent Message from Jesus - with John Carter

    John died twice while in the hospital being treated for sepsis in 2020. The second time his heart stopped he had a profound experience and found himself in the arms of Jesus Christ. Jesus baptized him and explained that John was not going to be staying, but that he would be sent back with an important message. He also heard scripture from Jesus and was not aware it was scripture until his return. Also in his experience he had a life review, he saw the Archangel Michael, visited with many of his old family members, saw some well known saints, and enjoyed the beauty of heaven. Upon his return, John is filled with the love of Jesus and has been blessed with a gfit to see when people are dealing with demonic oppression.  He shares two experiences where he was able to address those presences directly and help the person find freedom.
    "He said, 'I am sending you back.  There's too much hate in the world right now, way too much. I'm not very happy about that and I'm gonna send you back and I want you to teach people how to love one another, as I love them.'" - John Carter
    This is my commandment: Love each other in the same way I have loved you. John 15:12 NLT
    So those who are last now will be first then, and those who are first will be last. Matthew 20:16 NLT

    John says he has been forever changed by his experience and is passionate about serving others and loving people, and sharing his message from Jesus. He has established a website where he shares a painting of Jesus that he feels is exactly what he saw.  www.john-carter.org
    John worked for 22 years as a corrections officer and then as a Federal Air Marshall following 9/11. The portion of John's testimony around the health part of this journey was arduous and life threatening. It included times where he was close to multisystem organ failure. After having a section of his aorta and heart replaced, he reports that he is now nearly 90% and hopeful to make a full recovery.
    Thank you, John, for sharing your testimony! You are certainly a light for Jesus!

    A Mother's Worst Nightmare Sparks New Calling

    A Mother's Worst Nightmare Sparks New Calling

    Susan's 15 year old son Josh was crushed in an ATV accident just days before Christmas. Medical help may have been far away, but God was not. Susan shares how God prepared her for this event, how her family was prompted to pray, the miracles that would follow, and how it led her to get involved with Moms in Prayer, and ultimately, with the Open Eyes ministry.
    A former Registered Nurse, Susan Younis has been an Area Coordinator for Moms in Prayer for 3 years and leading Moms in Prayer groups for 7 years. She is also working with a beautiful ministry called Open Eyes as a Donor Ambassador.
    Susan shares as she reflects back to attending her first prayer group solo as Josh was healing:
    "The takeaway is to say yes when He (God) calls you to something. I love what Charles Stanley says, 'Obedience always brings blessings.' It's scary but I want to be where God wants me to be. On our journey He writes our story, He loves us, and has good plans for us. Sometimes it is hard to step out of that boat, but when you do, it honors God. It will bless you and you'll be a blessing to other people." - Susan Younis
    1 John 5:13-15
    I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life. This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. And if we know that he hears us—whatever we ask—we know that we have what we asked of him.

    Thank you Susan, for sharing this beautiful testimony with us, and for your service with Moms in Prayer and with Open Eyes as well!  You are a blessing to me and to so many others!

    One Foot in Heaven

    One Foot in Heaven

    What can the dying teach us about living?  What do their experiences teach us about the afterlife?  What is a deathbed vision?
    Heidi Barr shares from her 14 years of experience as a hospice nurse. In this episode Heidi defines hospice, shares her journey to hospice work, her variety of patients and situations (patient names are changed to protect confidentiality), insights she has gained through her work, deathbed visions commonly witnessed near the last days, the common occurrence of a patient passing as family steps away, vicarious glimpses of heaven, how we can be helpful to our loved ones while in hospice care, and so much more.
    I LOVE this one.  Heidi, thank you for sharing your beautiful experiences with us!

    Forensic Detective Given Evidence for Heaven - with Randy Schiefer

    Forensic Detective Given Evidence for Heaven - with Randy Schiefer

    In March 2020, Randy contracted COVID-19 and spent six weeks in the hospital.  Three and a half weeks were spent in a medically induced coma on a ventilator, on dialysis, and finally on an Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation (ECMO) machine.  As Randy's heart and organs began to fail, he was given a 3% chance of survival.  While in the coma, Randy experienced three near-death experiences.  He traveled twice through a dark tunnel.  His first trip exited into a beautiful building resembling a great hall and his second into a magnificent city.  He was privileged with the ability to see several deceased relatives and was honored when an unknown deceased veteran chose him to deliver a message to his granddaughter.  Randy was able to validate this experience (evidence!) by locating the granddaughter and passing her grandfather’s message to her (54:00).   These experiences have inspired in Randy a love for Jesus and for the Bible.
    "God has a plan.  He is real.  There is a heaven and it's beautiful."  -Randy Schiefer
    "Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me. My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you?  And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. You know the way to the place where I am going.” Jesus's words from John 14:1-4 NIV
    Randy holds a Bachelor of Science Degree in Psychology and a Master of Forensics Science Degree.  He spent 20 years in the United States Air Force as a Security Policeman and as a Special Agent in the Office of Special Investigations. He retired in 1992.  From the Air Force Randy started teaching at the collegiate level, entering as an adjunct instructor and working his way to Department Chair and finally as the college campus Director.  He retired (again) in 2014 and moved to Florida in 2015.
    Randy married his high school sweetheart in 1972. They have three marvelous daughters, two grandchildren, and a third due in August.

    Randy's book "To the Veil and Back, Surviving COVID-19" is coming soon!  Check it out for more detail as he continues to process and share his journey and revelation.

Hoping through hopelessness ,


I listened to “God speaks and reveals His plan” and it was extremely encouraging to me and God used it to confirm adoption to me again. My story is very similar to the guest who was on that day except I’m still in the waiting process. Is there any way I could speak to the guest who was on that episode just for some encouragement? God promised me my husband would adopt my daughter but it seems impossible right now. Please keep us in your prayers—court is Aug 17th.

Much needed

I came here because I needed to be reminded how big God is . I come here when I’m feeling down or just hopeless hearing victory after victory gives me victory in my battles it reminds me who I am in Christ and how mindful God is. Thank you for doing this God bless you.

Forever listener from Nebraska!
