Hello, I’m Sid Roth and welcome to “my supernatural world”
If you do signs and wonders, if you think you had a visitation from God or an angel, if you went to another realm you think is heaven, if you received a new revelation, had any type of experience Sid Roth will more than happy to welcome you on his show. If you teach the Bible correctly, never mind, stay home. Sid Roth’s show is called “it’s Supernatural” for a reason, it is a public illustration of everything that is wrong with the Church and Christianity today.
First; I do believe God does supernatural things, He still heals, He does the miraculous. But Sid Roth’s programming is all about experiences of departing from Scripture and focusing on trips to heaven and hell expanding the errors of going beyond Scripture to make them believable to the church. What you hear are a few biblical words or phrases as skeletons to hold up the edifice the person is building that is not to be found in the Bible.
It’s so shameful to hear what these people are speaking of by experiences, when there has been no biblical test applied, just believe it. Why? Because it’s Supernatural and Sid Roth is enraptured and approves it. Apparently only God can do the supernatural, the Devil can’t! Wrong! (read 2 Thess. 2) This is especially something to be aware of the in the last days we are living in.
The Bible says to test all things, especially the supernatural but he runs his presentation as believe all things and test nothing. And he also gives promises in his programs that this can happen to you too.
Chasing after signs (and wonders) and the story tellers of such tales is
exactly what Jesus said not to do. In fact Jesus addressed this numerous
times, he said to his own people who were seeking after a sign "An
evil and adulterous generation seeks after a sign, (Matt 8:11; 12:39;
A utter lack of discernment is exhibited by Roth with nearly every guest he has on, as he is excited to tell you of the next ear tickling story he has come across.
The audience claps and smiles as they ingest the extra biblical poison he distributes by his Gnostic/Mystic guests tales.
But what does the Bible actually say? Does it matter to anyone anymore?
You will hear some of the strangest descriptions of God and his activity like liquid honey came and baptized a person and it just came out of his toes.
In fact you will often hear of people having the spirit come on them from the head and they feel him down in their toes. Which is more aligned with a Kundalini experience found in Hinduism. Does any of this matter? No, not to Roth and apparently not to his audience
Sid is infatuated by the supernatural and just moves on squeezing more and more out no matter what kind of story is said. Nothing is actually questioned because it is the person’s experience. And experience is superior to doctrine that is written.
Clearly he does not exercise any Biblical discernment in fact his discernment is like buried treasure he has never dug up to use. He doies not distinguish the obvious contradictions he is all about a supernatural experience.
Story after story teller challenges the Bible, clearly this is doing far more damage than it is doing good. So many have gone to heaven that one would think its like taking an elevator on how many go there. It makes others feel inferior and jealous, that they want to have a similar experience, and this is one of the dangers. One sees body parts in one of the rooms in heaven that are just waiting for people to claim them for there own, another sees books not in the Bible that will soon be given when we are ready. There seems to be nothing off limits to the peoples imagination in their experiences.
2 Thess 2:9-11 The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs , and lying wonders , and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
Notice these lying signs and wonders precede the lawless ones coming and it is working among those who do not really believe the truth. What is the truth, those who keep the Word, allow the Word to instruct them. On spiritual matters, experiences this is most imnportant.
Jesus also said For false christs and false prophets will rise and show signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect. But take heed; see, I have told you all things beforehand. “(Mark 13:22-23)
Jesus told us ahead of time, now we are in that time.
Sid Roth’s audience are those who like their ears tinkled by new supernatural stories. Like those on Mars Hill who wanted to hear the newest spirituality, the show must go on.
Eccl 12:9-10 And moreover, because the Preacher was wise, he still taught the people knowledge; yes, he pondered and sought out and set in order many proverbs. The Preacher sought to find acceptable words; and what was written was upright--words of truth .”
What is written is what the wisest man in the world at the time pointed to. and Jesus did the same instructing believers to be set apart not by any experience but the truth which is written.
Heb 5:14 solid food belongs to those who are of full age, that is, those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.”
The mature in the Word recognize the truth from false, lighjt from darkness, good from evil.
Eph 6:14 having girded your waist with truth,
we are to have a belt of truth which upholds the other armor we wear.
2 Peter 2:1-3 B ut there were also false prophets among the people, even as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Lord who bought them, and bring on themselves swift destruction. And many will follow their destructive ways, because of whom the way of truth will be blasphemed. ”
The truth will be maligned by false teachers. Let me ask this question to you, are the false teaching from the Word in context, explaining what it means (expository preaching) or would they be teaching of their supernatural experiences that are divorced from the Word? selah.
