Mike Popovich, Radical Gospel, Supernatural Prayer

Enjoy this interview with Mike Popovich of Freedom Ministries as he shares about the beauty of the radical inclusive Gospel of Jesus Christ and the power of supernatural prayer. The truth of who Christ is and who you are in him changes everything! Subscribe to Freedom Ministry Youtube Channel Here.

I was shocked at how deep we went in this interview. We talk about some scandalous things that our scandalous Savior spoke about that could get you kicked out of church if you were to repeat it. There are so many Scriptures regarding the power and supernatural nature of prayer. Here is one example from the Lord’s own natural brother James:

The Power of Prayer

13 Are any of you suffering hardships? You should pray. Are any of you happy? You should sing praises. 14 Are any of you sick? You should call for the elders of the church to come and pray over you, anointing you with oil in the name of the Lord.15 Such a prayer offered in faith will heal the sick, and the Lord will make you well. And if you have committed any sins, you will be forgiven.

16 Confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power and produces wonderful results. 17 Elijah was as human as we are, and yet when he prayed earnestly that no rain would fall, none fell for three and a half years! 18 Then, when he prayed again, the sky sent down rain and the earth began to yield its crops.

James 5

Mike has been teaching recently on this exact passage of Scripture. Check out the host of teachings Mike has on the topic here!

How can we lay hold of these promises? I believe many in this next Great Awakening will finally get this and start walking it out. We will soon be doing exactly what Jesus said we would:

“I tell you the truth, anyone who believes in me will do the same works I have done, and even greater works, because I am going to be with the Father. 13 You can ask for anything in my name, and I will do it, so that the Son can bring glory to the Father. 14 Yes, ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it!”

John 14:12-14 NLT

Quantum Theory Relates to Prayer and Healing?

How closely does quantum theory interact with prayer? You’d be surprised! Mike and I discuss how the world is getting this and often walking in this reality of quantum prayer. Of course many in the church are now claiming their birthright and walking in this Kingdom reality and power.

Check this out:

How does what Mel Robbins presents in the following video relate to prayer?

Can you see the similarities with what she is talking about here and Philippians 4 which Mike Popovich references a great deal:

Always be full of joy in the Lord. I say it again—rejoice! Let everyone see that you are considerate in all you do. Remember, the Lord is coming soon.[c

Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.

And now, dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise. Keep putting into practice all you learned and received from me—everything you heard from me and saw me doing. Then the God of peace will be with you.

Philippians 4:4-9 NLT

Springs Of Living Water!

Recently Holy Spirit woke me with the following Scriptures. Only later did I realize that in our talk Mike also shared the one from Proverbs:

“Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.”

Proverbs 4:23 NIV

Another translation speaks of the Springs of Life:

“Watch over your heart with all diligence, For from it flow the springs of life.”

This revelation was paired with John 4:14

“But those who drink the water I give will never be thirsty again. It becomes a fresh, bubbling spring within them, giving them eternal life.”


And John 7:37-39

“Anyone who is thirsty may come to me! Anyone who believes in me may come and drink! For the Scriptures declare, ‘Rivers of living water will flow from his heart.’” (When he said “living water,” he was speaking of the Spirit, who would be given to everyone believing in him. But the Spirit had not yet been given, because Jesus had not yet entered into his glory.)

Kenneth Tanner, On the Incarnation

I love how Jesus is so central to Kenneth Tanner’s message. I asked Kenneth right away in our conversation about what he sees would be a vital point of reformation in the church. He talked about refocusing the centrality of Jesus Christ. Awesome!

Jesus Christ is the full revelation of who God the Father is. Jesus is the disclosure to us of who God is and also, what it means to be human. Yes, in Christ there is a new way to be human and participate in the Divine Life!

Partakers of the Divine Nature

Imagine that! We are partakers of the Divine Nature! And how? Through the promises of God! His assurance that this is so!

May God give you more and more grace and peace as you grow in your knowledge of God and Jesus our Lord.
By his divine power, God has given us everything we need for living a godly life. We have received all of this by coming to know him, the one who called us to himself by means of his marvelous glory and excellence. And because of his glory and excellence, he has given us great and precious promises. These are the promises that enable you to share his divine nature and escape the world’s corruption caused by human desires.

2 Peter 1:2-4

About Kenneth Tanner

Kenneth Tanner pastors at Holy Redeemer in Rochester Hills Michigan. You can connect with Kenneth and follow him at his facebook page!

I first heard of Kenneth through John MacMurray. Kenneth will be speaking at a conference with John MacMurray, Paul Young Young, Brad Jersak, C. Baxter Kruger and more at The Open Table Conference in Portland in June. We talked about him in our interview and there are a few quotes in MacMurray’s book, A Spiritual Evolution. The one I bring up in this conversation is this:

“When we read the Bible with the church we learn that not every line of Scripture has equal weight in answering the question, “Who is God and what is God like?””

pg 284 A Spiritual Evolution by John MacMurray

Quotes from Kenneth

Kenneth has a way of sharing happy theology in a way that makes you think. Just today I spent a good hour or more wondering what he was getting at and if Jesus had something in it for me. He highlights in our talk a beautiful point about why Jesus was baptized and we touch on the vicarious nature of Christ’s life, death, burial, resurrection, and ascension. Enjoy these Kenneth quotes:

On Behalf Of ALL

“Christ has taken all humanity down with him into the Jordan, into the waters of repentance, washing all who bear human identify because by Mary and the Spirit he partakes of the one nature shared by every human,

and Christ has likewise taken all humanity up onto the hard wood of the cross, dying a death that causes death to disappear from our shared human nature like straw from fire, and though some may choose to live in denial of their reconciliation to God in the flesh of Jesus, though some may choose to exist apart from Love

—which is to live hell, in this life and in the life of the age to come—

the reconciling work of God in Christ on behalf of all who bear human nature is accomplished, the union between God and human nature is in the flesh of Jesus irrevocable, permanent.

We can, it seems, make a most improbable choice to reject participation in this union but this is not God’s desire, nor the desire of any who love the God Jesus reveals. It is reasonable to hope and pray that no one makes that choice.

This is my earnest hope and prayer.” – Kenneth Tanner

“…the incarnation of God in human flesh, and that co-suffering love—God become this particular human, sinless yet slain, molecular Lord of every cosmic particle executed beyond human semblance—redeems the creation and all living things.”

And here is where Kenneth starts out by quoting someone else and offering some commentary:

On Being Human

“Only near-sighted people can suppose that Christianity has seen its time. Christianity has only taken its first, I would say timid, steps in human history. To this day many of Christ’s words are incomprehensible because we are still moral and spiritual neanderthal men. The gospel arrow is aimed towards eternity, and that which we call Christian history is in many ways a series of clumsy and unsuccessful attempts to bring Christianity about.” — Father Alexander Men

I think this is true.

Humanity does not understand that humans are made in the image of a tri-personal God, so that being in communion, being in relationship, is the way everything is meant to flourish.

Humanity does not yet understand that this divine community is not the origin of evil or death but goodness and life.

Humanity does not yet understand that everyone is already related to this community because the one tri-personal God has made every human in their image.

Humanity does not yet understand that one of the persons of God became human, that the Son took on the *one human nature* all humans share, and so this person who is God become human, Jesus Christ, is now the brother of every man or women who ever has lived, is living, or ever will live.

Humanity does not yet understand that this means that God has already related Godself to every human as their creator, as the invisible image that each one bear, and as the human sibling of Jesus Christ.

This is true whether or not we are indifferent to this person who embodies this truth, hostile toward him, apathetic about him, skeptical about him, or welcoming him.

And I could quite literally go on and on and on.

We are not human until we are human as God is human in Jesus Christ.

Now by the infinite grace of the incarnation—because God comes to share the one human nature all humans share—our flesh too can be transfigured as the flesh of Jesus is transfigured.

This is not merely a reflection of the uncreated light, like that which shone from the face of Moses. Here now is someone greater than Moses. This person on Tabor is God become man. The Light from Light has made his light to shine in our hearts.

“You are the light of the world.” We are being transfigured from glory to glory.

Much love and grace.

I actually share a brand new song (I finished it moments before recording it at the end of the podcast. It is also at my patreon site for a free download. If you would like to connect to this blessed stream of consciousness that is Kenneth Tanner, Follow him on his facebook page!

Florian Encounters Jesus, Father Heart Germany – SOZO EP0031

Florian Berndt from Germany shares his amazing testimony of meeting Jesus. He then shares a time when Jesus comes to him as his “Rabbi” (Teacher) and gives him supernatural downloads about our mystical union with God! This seems to be a major theme of this next Great Awakening! God is waking us up to who he is and who we are in him and being united with him.

I had a very similar experience which I share in a Youtube video called Oneness With God (Mystical Union with Christ)!

Florian also shares about how some other saints visited him like St. Francis of Assisi. He reminds us that Elijah and Moses visited with Jesus on the Mount of Transfiguration, so why couldn’t other saints visit us? BTW: Thomas Merton visited Howard Storm who I have interviewed right here on this website.

Enjoy getting to know our amazing brother Florian Berndt. Please connect with him at: https://www.facebook.com/FatherheartGermany

Howard Storm #NDE Befriend God SOZO EP0029

Part 2 of an Interview with Howard Storm

The long anticipated second part of an interview I did with Howard Storm. I kind of forgot about posting this. Truth is, I got discouraged by the lack of support and then got sick with walking pneumonia. And then there was the jail time I had to serve, then the stint in rehab, and my dog ate my homework and… okay fine, no more excuses. I failed you. I’m sorry.

Tricia Barker, Near Death Experience #NDE – SOZO EP0028

Tricia and I start off by talking about her Feb 15th 2019 appearance on the Dr Oz Show and her book about her NDE, Angels in the OR. I was shocked to learn that I had interviewed both the guests from this Dr. Oz episode right here on Sozo Talk Radio, Tricia and Sharon Milliman!

What Can We Learn From NDE’s?

The biggest message I have learned from my extensive research into NDE’s is exactly what the Bible teaches: God is Love. Infinite, Unconditional Love that Never Fails. No one can ever be separated from this love according to Romans 8.

Can anything ever separate us from Christ’s love? Does it mean he no longer loves us if we have trouble or calamity, or are persecuted, or hungry, or destitute, or in danger, or threatened with death?  (As the Scriptures say, “For your sake we are killed every day; we are being slaughtered like sheep.”) No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us.

And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.

What does Unconditional Love mean to you?

“We have come to know and have believed the love which God has for us. God is love, and the one who abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him.” 1 John 4:16

Finding Your Mision

I talked with a lady the other day at a nursing home who had a near death experience. When she died she was embraced by SO much love and desperately wanted to stay. She was brought back and when she woke in the hospital she was so mad she said she could have slapped someone.

I told her, You are still here for a purpose, you are on mission.

Everyone has a mission, first, to bring more love and kindness into this world. All else is secondary but also important. What path does God have for you to partner with him in? Where do you find flow?

The theologian C. Baxter Kruger has a great deal to say about the value of every persons mission. A botanist is partnering with God in his passion to preserve, study, and care for plants. The farmer partners with God to bring food from the dirt!

Everything is sacred!

I asked Tricia what she would tell others that might help them to partner with God and the angels to find purpose and their mission?

Encounter With Jesus

I was delighted when Tricia shared a very profound encounter with Jesus. He brought her so much healing in his affirming and loving words. It’s worth the listen.

ps. I am continuing to work on my book, The Christian Mystic – Encounters With Jesus. Stay tuned and subscribe if you haven’t already.

A Spiritual Evolution, John MacMurray – SOZO EP0027

“This is the story of a journey towards spiritual change. We invite you to join a conversation that is discovering God is better than we have ever imagined.”

John MacMurray, A Spiritual Evolution

When I was recently introduced to John MacMurray I thought, “Wait a minute. I know that name. Donald Miller!” Indeed John MacMurray cowrote a book originally called To Own a Dragon with one of my favorite authors Donald Miller. I learned that Don even lived at the MacMurray home for about four years!

In this first part of my interview with John, we discuss John’s connection to Donald Miller and his connection to Wm Paul Young, the author of The Shack. (Listen to my interview with Wm Paul Young here)

Open Table Conference

For several years now John MacMurray, Wm Paul Young, and C. Baxter Kruger have been hosting the Open Table Conference (www.opentableconference.com). They discuss radical orthodox happy theology, which is basically what his book A Spiritual Evolution is all about.

I say “radical” because this means “roots”. MacMurray, Baxter, and Young are returning to the glorious roots of the Christian faith. Besides good and happy theology is rad dude!

I say “orthodox” because this means conforming to established doctrine. Doctrine is another word for the solid teachings of Jesus Christ Himself.

I say “happy theology” because this is God we are talking about. Can you imagine a more joyful Being in all the universes than God? He is the very definition of pure, exquisite, ‘bursting at the seams’, joy inexpressible and FULL of glory!

Bill Vanderbush, Reckless Grace – SOZO EP0026

I remember well when I said “Yes” to forgiveness. Bitterness had tormented for years. It contributed to depression and anxiety as I rehearsed all the negative and hurtful things a certain someone had done to me. I didn’t see my condition as bitterness or unforgiveness – I saw it as self-defense. I thought I was protecting myself from future wounds. So I reminded myself often of what they had done so I wouldn’t let myself get too close and be wounded again.

But this was all challenged when I watched a video produced by Rob Bell called “Luggage”.

“I forgive them from my heart”, I said, after watching this short film. It worked like magic.

All of a sudden that person became human again. They were no longer demonized in my mind. I recognized that they were a broken person in need of grace and forgiveness just like me. What I perceived as a mountain of offense suddenly became a mole hill. I began to see how they were suffering and because of their own pain and dysfunction they ended up wounding others. As the saying goes, “Hurt people, hurt people.”

What is Forgiveness?

Here is a quote I brought up in my interview with Wm Paul Young:

“Nobody gets away with anything. Everything bears consequences. I’m not asking you to excuse what he did. Im asking you to trust me to do whats right and know what’s best. Forgiveness doesn’t establish relationship. It is about letting go of his throat.”

The Shack

Forgiving others means letting go of our resentment and surrendering our thought for revenge. As pointed out in an article from the Mayo clinic, “Forgiveness can even lead to feelings of understanding, empathy and compassion for the one who hurt you.”

Forgiving actually set the forgiver free.

Here’s the miracle: I found that when I forgave, it not only healed my heart, but it also protected my heart from future wounds! The person didn’t change. They still said hurtful things and treated me the same way but now it was like water off a ducks back.

In conclusion, if you are looking for a solid book about forgiveness then I would recommend picking up Reckless Grace by Bill Vanderbush and Brit Eaton.

Receiving forgiveness that heals you heart and heals the world

Will Stone Meets Jesus Face to Face, SOZO EP0024

Will Stone Meets Jesus

Will Stone’s Testimony is by far one of the most amazing things on the internet! Jesus visited Will Stone as he prayed in his room. His testimony video was one of those I have revisited from time to time. I shared his story with my daughters and part of his testimony became a thing we say around the house from time to time. Jesus said to Will when he met him:

“Will, What’s up my dude?”

It’s pretty cute hearing my three old say, “What’s up my dude?”

Some of the comments in his video comments included:

  • “Best thing on the internet”
  • “I can see the joy of Jesus in your heart”
  • “Your testimony moved me”.

Will Stone’s Testimony

Will was an atheist as a teenager. He thought those Christians were crazy and had nothing to do with them. And then God showed up in his life. God spoke quite clearly to him, “Will, I want you to follow me.”

Will knew that this was God and said, “Bad timing dude. I’m just about to go to college and live the party life.” God respectfully left.

Will then pursued drugs and girls and made a complete mess of his life and broke his own heart with his sin.

When he was at a very low point Will prayed, “Lord, heal my mind, heal my soul heal my body, heal this place.”

After praying this for a short time he looked out the window and saw a peculiar light. A being floated in on a beam of light right into Will’s room.

“Will, What’s up my dude?” Jesus said.

And he was like, “Woah, it’s Jesus!”

“Yea Will, it’s me, and I am the great problem solver.”

He was shown a vision of rubics cubes all lined up on a table that stretched out as far as the eye can see and as soon as a stopwatch was pressed, Jesus was at your side saying, “Done!”

“I can solve all the problems in your life. Just give them to me.”

Pretty awesome right?

Unless we are new wine skins we will burst and be ruined when God pours out the new wine… and he is pouring it out. Are you ready for it?
