Josiah Lamb: Hearing God's Voice

A 12-year-old boy survived a tragic jet ski accident and was miraculously saved by doing what the Lord told him to do. Read Transcript


MY NAME IS JOSIAH LAMB

AND I'M 12 YEARS OLD.

I GOT INTO THIS TRAGIC

JETSKI ACCIDENT.

I HEARD GOD'S VOICE AND HE

SAID PUT YOUR HAND UP,

JOSIAH.

ON THAT FOURTH OF JULY

WEEKEND, THEY WERE HAVING A

GREAT TIME.

HE AND MY SON-IN-LAW WERE ON

THE JETSKI TOGETHER.

AND I WAS DRIVING IT, SO I

WAS IN THE FRONT.

I JUST STARTED GUNNING IT,

LIKE I WAS GOING TO WHIP IT

AND SPIN.

THERE WAS THIS BLUE BOAT

LINE, WHERE YOU TIE YOUR

BOAT UP TO.

AND WE WERE GOING BACK AND

WE JUST WENT STRAIGHT INTO

IT.

I WAS UPSTAIRS IN THE

HOUSE, AND ALL OF A SUDDEN I

JUST HEAR A LOT OF

COMMOTION.

A FEW SECONDS BEFORE WE

HIT IT, LIKE THE SKY JUST

LIT UP, AND THE TIME JUST

FROZE.

IT WAS AMAZING.

AND THIS SKY JUST LIT UP

WITH ANGELS.

THE ANGELS WERE NOT NO CUPID

LITTLE ATHLETES ANGELS WITH

BOW AND ARROWS.

THEY HAD FLAMING SWORDS.

THEY WERE HUMONGOUS.

THEY WERE LIKE SOME BRUTE

STRENGTH GUYS.

I HEARD GOD'S VOICE, AND HE

SAID PUT YOUR HAND UP,

JOSIAH.

I SEE MY SON-IN-LAW

LIFTING MY SON OUT OF THE

WATER.

AND HE WAS JUST VERY LIMP.

YOU COULD TELL IT WAS

SERIOUS.

MY HUSBAND WAS OVER THERE AT

THAT POINT, AND HE JUST HAD

JOSIAH, YOU KNOW, WITH HIS

HEAD ON HIS LAP.

HIS NECK WAS TORN OPEN, AND

YOU COULD TELL IT WAS REALLY

DEEP, AND THERE WERE BUBBLES

COMING OUT, AND YOU COULD

HEAR THE AIR, AND THERE WAS

BLOOD.

IT WAS JUST REALLY, REALLY

SCARY RIGHT AT THAT MOMENT.

AND MY HUSBAND WAS JUST

REAS REASSURING HIM THE

WHOLE TIME.

HE SAID, JOSIAH, DON'T

WORRY ABOUT IT.

EVERYTHING WILL BE OKAY.

IT WAS VERY CHAOTIC, AND FOR

HIM TO SPEAK THAT PEACE AT

THAT MOMENT WAS JUST REALLY

NIGHT.

THEY HAD TO PUT HIM IN,

YOU KNOW, A COMA FOR 24

HOURS UNTIL THE SWELLING

CAME DOWN.

BECAUSE IF THEY DIDN'T, HIS

AIRWAY WAS SHOT.

I BROKE TWO FEMURS.

THIS IS ALL SCAR TISSUE.

JOSIAH HAD LIFTED HIS

HAND AT THE LAST SECOND, AND

IF HE WOULDN'T HAVE LIFTED

HIS HAND, IT WOULD HAVE GONE

RIGHT INTO HIS NECK AND IT

WOULD HAVE DECAPITATED HIM.

EVEN THOUGH THIS WAS CUT

OPEN, AND I BROKE A COUPLE

OF FINGERS, I'M HAPPY THAT

I'M STILL ALIVE.

WELL, FOR THE FIRST FOUR

DAYS AND THE HOSPITAL, HE

COULDN'T SPEAK.

WHEN THEY CAME IN ONE

DAY, MY MOM WAS WITH ME, AND

I WAS LIKE, MOM.

AND SHE WAS LIKE, YOU CAN

TALK NOW.

AND I'M LIKE, YEAH, HEY, I

SAW ANGELS.

AND I KNEW RIGHT THEN

WHEN HE SAID THAT, HE

STARTED TELLING ME HE HEARD

GOD'S VOICE.

WHEN HE TOLD ME THAT, I WAS

JUST, LIKE, WOW.

GOD WAS THERE.

THAT WAS THE FIRST TIME I

HAD EVER HEARD GOD'S VOICE.

THAT SAVED MY LIFE.

WHEN I GOT OUT OF THE

HOSPITAL, I MEAN, I WAS JUST

TELLING EVERYBODY MY STORY.

FROM THAT MOMENT ON, PEOPLE

WANTED ME TO PRAY FOR THEM.

HE WOULD JUST LAY HANDS

ON THE KIDS, AND HE WAS VERY

BOLD IN HIS PRAYER.

AND HE WAS SPEAKING THINGS

THAT GOD WAS SHOWING HIM.

THERE WAS A MISSION TRIP

COMING UP TO BALTIMORE, AND

I GO.

I SAW THIS GUY IN A

WHEELCHAIR, AND HE WAS JUST

WHEELING BY IN HIS

WHEELCHAIR.

AND HE WAS HOMELESS.

I WALKED OVER TO HIM, AND I

WAS LIKE, WE HAVE TO PRAY

FOR HIM.

SO I WALKED OVER TO HIM, AND

I JUST STARTED PRAYING.

IT WAS THE FIRST TIME HE

COULD MOVE HIS LEGS.

I MEAN, THAT'S COOL, I LIKE

THAT, BUT CAN WE MAKE HIM

WALK.

LET'S JUST MAKE HIM WALK.

THE THIRD TIME I PRAYED FOR

HIM, HE GOT OUT OF THE CHAIR

AND HE COULD WALK.

I WAS LIKE, OH!

AND MY HUSBAND EVEN WENT

TO THE YOUTH PASTOR AND

SAID, YOU KNOW, WE DON'T

UNDERSTAND WHAT'S GOING ON.

AND HE SAID, PEOPLE ARE

GETTING HEALED, WHEN HE GOES

UP THERE AND PRAYS FOR

PEOPLE, PEOPLE ARE GETTING

TOUCHED AND MOVED ON BY

GOD.

AND HE SAID, THIS IS REAL.

BEFORE I GOT INTO THE

JETSKI ACCIDENT, I KNEW

THERE WAS A GOD UP THERE.

I THOUGHT GOD WAS LIKE A

JUDGE.

YOU'RE DONE, GO TO HELL.

THAT'S ALL I THOUGHT GOD

WAS.

AND HE WASN'T THAT VERY

NICE.

HE IS MORE THAN THAT.

GOD LOVES ME SO MUCH, AND HE

DOESN'T WANT HIS CHILDREN TO

DIE, SO HE CAME DOWN AND HE

SAVED ME.

IT'S BEEN REALLY COOL, AS

HIS MOM, TO SEE THAT, YOU

KNOW, GOD CAME OFF THE PAGES

OF THE BIBLE AND BECAME

REALLY REAL IN HIS LIFE.

AND IS INTERACTIVE.
