January 2015 Newsletter
Introduction by Sid Roth
I expect 2015 to be the most supernatural year yet! Revival is coming. But for you to participate in the way God intended, you may need to change some things. A wise man once said, “If you keep doing things the same way and expect different results, you’re crazy.” One of those changes may be your diet. What we eat and how we eat can have a direct impact on our ability to stay healthy and full of energy, hear from God, and accomplish our destiny. I asked Jordan Rubin to write the following article for our Mishpochah (Family) with practical advice for eating, based on his supernatural revelation from the Bible. These insights can transform your health in body, mind and spirit. May you enjoy a blessed, healthy and supernatural new year!
Supernatural New Year!
By Jordan Rubin
Imagine embarking on a 10-day journey that will help you lose weight and detoxify your body, mind and spirit. Imagine supercharging your energy, boosting your immune system, jump starting your digestion, and powering your brain with a supernaturally inspired health plan based on health secrets from the Bible dating back over 2,600 years. These Bible health secrets enabled ordinary men to experience 10 times the wisdom, favor and understanding compared to their peers, and now for the first time, you can have access to these secrets as well.
It all started on my way home from an evangelistic campaign in Srikakulam, India when my greatest nutritional revelation occurred. During a long drive back from a remote city in the state of Andhra Pradesh, the Lord spoke to me in a vision and laid out the diet plan that would become the centerpiece to the revolutionary new health plan I call The Maker’s Diet Revolution.
This 10-day nutrition and detoxification plan embraces the body’s natural cycles by employing the ancient strategy of regular cleansing and building, consisting of the biblically-inspired foods similar to those consumed by the great prophet Daniel and his three Jewish friends more than 2,600 years ago. God gave us a great body. When we detox — or get the bad stuff out — and then put the right stuff in, the body operates the way God intended.
When Daniel was faced with consuming the king’s rich foods, which likely consisted of biblically detestable items, he responded by saying this:
Prove thy servants, I beseech thee, ten days; and let them give us pulse to eat, and water to drink (Daniel 1:12 ASV).
Then compare our appearance with that of the young men who eat the royal food, and treat your servants in accordance with what you see (Daniel 1:13 NIV).
After 10 days of consuming foods that God created, Daniel and his three friends experienced incredible results. Their features appeared better and healthier than all the young men who ate a portion of the king’s delicacies. As for these four youths, God gave them learning and skill in all literature and wisdom, and Daniel had understanding in all visions and dreams.
After the 10-day diet, Daniel and his three friends continued on their God-inspired health plan with amazing results:
And the king communed with them; and among them all was found none like Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah: therefore stood they before the king (Daniel 1:19 ASV).
And in all matters of wisdom and understanding, about which the king examined them, he found them ten times better than all the magicians and astrologers who were in all his realm (Daniel 1:20).
As if Daniel’s initial health transformation wasn’t enough proof that God’s health plan trumps that of man’s, we can take it even further and see that Daniel outlived the king and was alert and coherent enough to advise the king’s grandson, Belshazzar, roughly 70 years after the reign of Nebuchadnezzar began. Now that is a telling piece of information!
It seems like such a silly thing for Daniel to have requested a different diet, especially considering his circumstances. How many of us would happily have enjoyed the delicacies of the king? But, we see that the four young men who ate the diet of pulse and water were given knowledge and skill in all learning and wisdom by God.
Daniel risked his life for a diet that later provided him a cutting edge above all of the counselors in the kingdom. We can see that diet is not a silly thing. Our intellectual ability and health are dependent on our choice of diet. Why not give the way of eating, inspired by Daniel’s own 10-day diet, a chance to help you?
So what would be Daniel’s challenge to you? Follow the instructions laid out in The Maker’s Diet Revolution: Your Transformation Kit and see if your countenance will be fairer and your health better. Let me make clear, the vegetarian portion of the diet is just for ten days. Personally, I am not a vegetarian. The amazing thing is, during these ten days, you have all the benefits of a spiritual fast but you could lose much more weight than fasting, and you eat healthy food that can be obtained from any grocery store.
And the revelation doesn’t stop there! In my research of the biblical way of eating, I uncovered an amazing health strategy I call “daily cleansing.” By narrowing your daily eating time window, and thus lengthening your cleansing time, your health will greatly improve in many ways. As a nation, we’ve spent decades feeding our bodies the wrong foods. We’ve become so far removed from what real food actually is that many of us don’t even know how to start eating properly. But the human body is remarkable in its ability to heal itself — especially when fed food that truly fuels nutrition. I believe this new plan, which expands upon the principles found in the original Maker’s Diet, will create a health and wellness revolution in the lives of millions of people. By the way, you will learn the breakfast food manufacturers have lied to us. Breakfast is the least important meal of the day!
For the last 19 years, I have devoted my life to coaching people to overcome “incurable” diseases. This mission stems from my own miraculous healing from Crohn’s disease and 18 other health problems. In the midst of my two-year battle during unspeakable pain and suffering, while describing myself as “being trapped in a prison that was my body,” I made God a promise. Finally understanding how devastating physical illness can be, I came to the realization that if God heals me and I can help just one person overcome disease, or better yet avoid it, then this living hell will have all been worth it!

I am bursting with expectancy.
I know 2015 will be the best year ever! Now I can just hear many of you asking, “Sid, don’t you know prophets are predicting gloom and doom?” Yes, but I am bursting with the greatest expectancy I have ever had at the start of a new year! The raindrops are beginning to fall signifying the beginning of the great awakening!
Jesus’ first miracle was turning water into wine at the wedding in Cana. Afterward, the master of the wedding feast exclaimed to the bridegroom: “You have kept the best [wine] until now!” (John 2:10 NLT). God has reserved the best outpouring of His Spirit until now.
Jesus not only promised us we would do the same works as Him, but that we would do even greater works (John 14:12). He has reserved the greater works for now.
This is why I am passionate about mentoring you in the supernatural. Only the supernatural of God will reverse the direction of America and other nations of the world. Most of the young people today have no moral compass. Yet it will be the young who will become so on fire for God they will impact their parents and force churches to be normal — normal in the supernatural according to the Bible. Not part of the younger generation? Not to worry — God has an important role for you to play too. Just look at me!
The days are coming quickly that my friend Kathryn Kuhlman prophesied about. She said hospitals would be cleared out because of the anointing. Everyone will be healed.
I believe the population of entire cities will become on-fire believers in Messiah Jesus. I see amputated limbs and missing eyes restored. I see miracles reported on the six o’clock television news. I see football stadiums being used not for sports, but for meetings to host the glory of God. Every seat will be taken. Standing room only!
The beginning of this revival will start this year. I want you to be part of it. Please consider allowing me to be your mentor in the supernatural of God. Between our television show, new radio program, It’s Supernatural! TV Network (ISN), mentoring clubs and our books, we are mentoring tens of thousands worldwide.
As we head into this new season of revival, I am still excited over what God did during the most recent Feast of Tabernacles. Over 500 unsaved Jewish people (almost all had never heard the Gospel) stood up together to publicly confess Jesus as Messiah. This would have been amazing anywhere. But it happened in Jerusalem, Israel! This was truly historic — unprecedented in modern-day Israel.
Because I have been faithful in reaching the one, God has multiplied the harvest to over 500. Wherever I go, I find that people are hungry for an experiential knowledge of God. Two days ago, I witnessed to a college-age waitress who then said a prayer of salvation with me. After she prayed, she was teary-eyed and said, “You are making me cry.” She said, “Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!” in front of all the customers.
I believe millions of Jews will be in heaven because of what you and others have invested in this ministry. But I also see thousands of you operating in signs and wonders greater than my TV guests and leading multitudes to Jesus.
Catch God’s vision and catch God’s heart. All Israel will be saved.
