Angels In Our Midst

Journal Entry: Angels in Our Midst

Date: 11/20/2010

angel at doorDuring quiet time I was re-reading portions from the book by H. A. Baker “Visions of Heaven” where the children were caught up in the spirit to heaven and experienced the immeasurable joy and laughter while playing with angels. The kids rolling, laughing and playing with angels painted a picture so wonderful to me. I meditated on how the Bible speaks of angels in our midst and how the kids described seeing angels during the out pouring of the Holy Spirit. Right then, I asked the Lord to let me experience the same joy and laughter as the Abdullam orphans did, I asked the Lord to send an angel to me since He has myriads of them just sitting around waiting for an assignment; I have faith for that kind of prayer and in fact,  I’ve prayed it many times before ministering and have seen God deliver the answer ever time.

Later in the afternoon, after finishing a long walk in the park, I came into our home and sat down on the sofa with my dear wife. Suddenly, we heard the front glass storm door open and quickly close. We were sitting where we could look down the hall towards the front door and  both leaned forward looking in the direction of the sound we both heard and said together, “Did you hear that? It sounded like someone opened and closed the storm door.”

Immediately, my wife got up and walked to the front door and opened it looking to see if anyone was there or nearby. No one was to be seen nor was there a package left at the door by someone.

She returned back to the den where I was sitting and then I sensed the presence of an angel just to my right standing next to me.  As soon as I said, “I sense an angel here” I broke into a deep weeping, I mean I just melted and I couldn’t stop it. I wept for a short period of time and then the sobbing turned into laughter. I would begin to weep and end up with laughter and it continued for some time. I felt the joy of the Lord flooding into my soul bringing with it healing and a refreshing supernatural strength. This must be what the kids felt as described in the book “Vision of Heaven”. This was indeed a piece of heaven ministered to me by an angel of the Lord.

Then as soon as the angel came, the angel left, but somehow I will never be the same. I told my wife of my prayer to receive the same joy and laughter that the kids felt and that this was the Lord answering my prayer. She said, “He really loves you,” her words were so beautiful and timely. My Lord indeed loves me and when He manifests His love to me in such a personable way, I can’t help but fall in love with Him all the more.  After all it is about growing in relationship with the Father that matters more than any other thing on this earth.

Know Him and be known of Him. (Matthew 7)

  • Seasons in the Word Lead to Victories in the Spirit

    waveI have noticed that God gives us seasons where He leads us into studying His Word. During this season, we seem to have a greater desire to read the Word more than at other times. The Word seems to be more alive to us and the mysteries of God seem to jump off the page. Holy Spirit is illuminating new revelation to us as our faith is being built up in the truths of God.

    These Word seasons last for however long God has determined and then we begin to notice a transition in our walk. Often the change is first noticed during our prayer and Bible study time.

    During “dry” times, the scripture doesn’t seem to be flowing off the page as it was before and can seem difficult to get anything out of the Word at all; the Teacher is silent during the test. God’s silence is a good indicator that the waves now crashing a shore have changed from the Word season of growth and learning waves to spiritual waves and a season of trial and testing.

    Holy Spirit shifts our lives into spiritual seasons so we can walk out what He has been teaching us in the Word. Perhaps you’ve heard the saying, “A man with an experience is not at the mercy of a man with an argument.” A spiritual season is to give us experiential knowledge of God’s Word and the applied knowledge truly gives us true understanding of God. Our faith isn’t faith at all until it has been tested under fire. The military knows that a battle hardened soldier is much more effective than a soldier in basic training because they’ve been in battle after battle and have endured because of the training they have received.

    Jesus taught and demonstrated the Kingdom to His disciples before He commissioned them to go out and demonstrate it. Jesus repeated the process of Word seasons and spiritual wave seasons time and time again.

     In Luke 8:1, Jesus is going from one village to another proclaiming and preaching the kingdom of God with the twelve disciples following Him. In verse 10, the disciples are told that it has been granted for them to know the mysteries of the kingdom of God meaning that they would begin to understand the Word of God and the Spirit of God and how it must work together to demonstrate the Kingdom of God.  And in Luke 9:1, the disciples are commissioned with the power and authority of Jesus to go out with demonstration and proclaim the kingdom of God. So you see, the disciples had to go and get experiential knowledge for themselves.

    These Word seasons are to build us up in our faith so we can stand strong during the spiritual seasons. Years ago during the night I heard the Father say to me, “For I know the plans that I have for you, plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope.” (Jeremiah. 29:11). Then He said, “God is not a man, that He should lie, nor a son of man that He should repent; has He said, and will He not do it? Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good?” (Num. 23:19)

    genesis manThe Lord repeated Jeremiah 29:11 and Numbers 23:19 all night long in this order. Twice in the night I got up out of bed, once to adjust the thermostat and once to go the bathroom and immediately afterwards, I went back to bed only to hear Him repeat the verses over and over again. This continued all night long, even as I was beginning to wake up and dozing in and out of sleep, I would hear Him cycle through these verses over and over again. The verses were waves and waves of the Word that came to me all night in order to build my faith for the spiritual season which lay ahead.

     Shortly after this wonderful night of soaking in the waves of God’s Word, I entered into the hardest and darkest spiritual battle of my Christian walk. As it got closer I could see it coming yet I couldn’t do anything to get out of the way…the spiritual season was upon me and what a spiritual test it would be!

    The company where I was working was bought out by another company in a merger that placed me under new management with the new owners. I could discern evil coming, but I couldn’t put a name on it, I just knew the spiritual atmosphere had changed and it had changed for the worse. I pressed into God like never before sensing the danger which was coming upon my life and I too wanted this cup to pass from me.

    I wasn’t alone in sensing the danger of the hour as other Christian co-workers agreed that there was an evil and demonic presence in our building which was thick, heavy and intimidating. I knew God had assigned me in the work place ministry and that I couldn’t be fired, layed-off or quit until He released me from my assignment no matter what was going to happen to me.  

     Months passed as the new management transferred me out of my position into another location farther away, making my daily commute two hours round trip thus removing me from where God has placed me to minister. Instead of complaining, I just used that extra commute time to listen to preaching tapes and to meditate on the Word. My pastor at the time, had no information of my work conditions but when he would pass me in the fellowship meetings he would say, “When you come out of this you will be promoted and much stronger.”

    The spiritual attacks got worse but I kept pressing into prayer, studying and petitioning God to teach me what He wanted me to learn through this experience. We’re ultimately tested in order to learn that God is able to bring us through anything the enemy can throw at us if we won’t give up, give in and quit.

    On Sunday, July 7, 2002, Holy Spirit gave me a verse, “His left hand [is] under my head, and His right hand doth embrace me.” (Songs 2:6) This was my rhema word, I read it over and over and meditated on it all week long.

    I knew in the Spirit that evil darkness in the earth and the demonic kingdom was trying everything in its power to take my life this week. On Thursday, July 11th while driving back from lunch, an out of control driver raced out of a parking lot headed right at the driver’s side door of my vehicle. There just happened to be a side street where I was able to take evasive actions and I wasn’t even hit. It was so miraculous, that I couldn’t even get mad at the kamikaze driver that was used as a pawn by the devil’s kingdom.

    That same night, I walked out the front door of my house and was praying to God and said, “I present my body to You as a living sacrifice and I trust You with my life, use my body for Your glory.” 

    The very next day, I was riding my motorcycle home after work, a car came rushing out of a side street right in front of me. The driver stopped in front of me as my motorcycle sped toward certain collision at over forty-five miles per hour. I had always heard everything slows down when in a death situation like this and it’s true. It just appears to slow down when in fact the human mind races with thoughts and the adrenal gland kicks in and pumps like crazy.

    cautionThe first thought that came to me was that this wasn’t God’s plan for my life because He had told me all night long that He didn’t bring calamity into my life and that He would give me a future and a hope. It didn’t take a “rocket scientist” to figure out a speeding motorcycle about to T-bone a car isn’t God’s plan for me. I said, “This isn’t God’s plan for me and I shall live and not die, I’m going over this car Lord!”

    As I pressed hard on the front and rear brake levers, my speed didn’t slow down due to the short closing distance to the vehicle. Then “bam” I heard a loud crash as the front wheel of my motorcycle impacted the vehicle and I was airborne flying high over the car in the center lane. I wasn’t wearing a helmet and I was thought I wished I had it on for the impending impact to come. I said, “Lord if I hit my head I’m dead.” All I could see was the concrete road and thinking how much this was going to hurt.

    Suddenly, I noticed that my forward direction traveling down the center lane was being changed. Some external force was moving me from the center lane over to the left lane even though I couldn’t feel anything touching me. I landed on my right shoulder and head in the middle of the far left lane. I tumbled over and over as I could hear the impact of my head on the concrete. Amazingly, I didn’t feel any pain as I thumped along the concrete. Truly His left hand [is] under my head and His right hand doth embrace me.

    After I stopped tumbling, I lay there a few seconds completing my injury inventory. I was awaiting the message of “horrendous pain” to be sent through my body notifying every member that we’re hurt really bad, but it didn’t come.

    I got up to my knees and saw the people in the passing cars starring at me. In every direction people were just as though they had been frozen where they stopped their vehicles. They didn’t know if they had just seen a person die or at best seriously injured. All but two stayed in their cars and watched as a few came rushing to my aid.

     One man ran up to me and said he used to be a paramedic and he instructed me to stay down but I just couldn’t let the enemy have a moment of satisfaction in this. What the enemy had meant for my harm had failed and he needed to see me stand up, and stand up I did! Right in the middle of the devil’s snare, I rose in victory. In some ways this was no different from Daniel in the lion’s den, he was kept safe in the midst of death and so was I.

    Right beside me in the middle lane next to where I had landed was my motorcycle, all 800 pounds of it. It had obviously flipped end over end after colliding with the car and had been in the air flying right behind me. If an angel of the Lord hadn’t moved me out of the way, I would have been crushed to death by that motorcycle.

    I walked away from the accident with a quarter sized road rash on my left elbow, a slightly separated right clavicle and a pulled groin muscle, that was it.  The groin injury was miraculously healed the following Monday night when a minister called out a word knowledge saying that someone had a groin injury.  When I heard him say that word out loud I said, “That for me!” I immediately felt the power of God heal my groin injury.

    doublemanThe traffic officer who investigated the accident asked me three times what had happened, I’d tell him and each time he would respond with, “You shouldn’t be alive! You need to go home and thank God you’re still alive!”  He went on to say that he had been investigating traffic accidents for many years and he had been in a motorcycle wreck himself and he knew this is a miracle.

     The following Saturday morning, while in prayer, the Lord said in an audible voice, “It’s the spirit of Jezebel!” Now I knew what had been the driving force behind all the evil at work and the cause of the attacks on my life for the Jezebel spirit opposes the prophet as it did with Elijah. The light had come and shined in on the darkness to reveal it and how bright the light was, I knew I had the victory!

     Early one morning, before anyone was at work, I went to the office of the person the Jezebel spirit was operating through, and I bound the spirit from manifesting in their lives at work. Always remember that our battle isn’t with flesh and blood (people) but against rulers, against powers, against the world forces of darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places. (Eph. 6:12)  We are still required to pray for those who oppose us and love them regardless of what they are saying or doing to us at the time.

    The individual the spirit of Jezebel was operating through, was on vacation at this time and didn’t return until the next day. When I saw them, they were refreshed, happy and free and they thought it was all due to being on vacation – but I knew different.

    God had built me up in the Word by sending wave after wave of His wonderful Word to sustain me in the coming spiritual battle of my life and He will do the same for you. When you have done all to stand…stand!

  • Prayer and Speaking Against the Enemy

    How the events unfolded:

    Sunday Morning: 4:00 AM –  My Wife’s Dream

    angel1Early Sunday morning, my wife had a dream that a thief had broken into our house and was in her childhood bedroom.  In the dream, she entered the bedroom, grabbed the thief by the nape of his neck, had his face pinned to the floor, her knee in the middle of his back as she called 911 on her cell phone.  As she awoke, the dream seemed real and troubled her, so she began to speak against any thief, robber or attack of the enemy in our spiritual, emotional, physical or natural lives.  

    Monday Morning 12:44 AM – Bill Heard in the Spirit

    Last night at 12:44 AM,  In the Spirit, I heard the sound of very heavy footsteps traveling at a fast pace from the corner of our upstairs bedroom, across the room then out the bedroom door. The steps thundered inside of me like a base drum beating to a march, much like the energizer bunny commercials. I rose up in bed but didn’t see anything.  

    The next morning while in prayer I asked the Father why the angel was in our home and what was his name?  He said, “Patrolling the property, he doesn’t leave. I have appointed him to relieve Jae’s fear of robbery. His name is “Inconus”, which means “Bright Gallant One”. You will both hear him from time to time as he patrols the property. Oh, by the way I will add to your properties this year, indeed I will add too.” 

    That’s our comforting Father!

  • Three Point Nine Zero Years To Go

    In the early morning about 6:00 AM on January 2, 2005, while still lying in bed an angel of the Lord was dispatched to me and I heard in an announcing voice, “Three point nine years to go!”

    The voice wasn’t the Father, Jesus or Holy Spirit but an angel. I’ve never heard before then or since anyone counting years as how the angel had just stated them to me. Immediately I got up out of bed and went to my computer and counted out three point nine years. The date I came up with was November 25, 2008.

    Now the years have came and went and allot of things have changed in the earth. I have pondered over this so much over the years just quietly listen to see if the Lord would reveal anything else about this date.
    During this period another angel was dispatched to me early one morning. I saw him in the spirit coming up the alley behind our house pushing a buggy used for delivering packages. He was dressed as a postman in an old wool uniform. He stopped his buggy, reached in and selected a manila envelope. Then he turned and came through the back gate and walk up to the back door and knocked. I opened the door and he handed me the manila envelope and said, “Special delivery!”
    Then I awoke and got up out of bed and went downstairs to my secret place to seek what the Father had just delivered to me. I opened my bible to Daniel 8:19 He said, “Behold, I am going to let you know what will occur at the final period of the indignation, for {it} pertains to the appointed time of the end 
    Immediately, I understood how to map out the Leviticus feast and unravel the mystery of the timeline give in Daniel. I will release that revelation in another blog in the near future.  The main thing I want to share in this blog is that Jesus said, “For the coming of the Son of Man will be just like the days of Noah. Mt. 24:37
    When you study the timeline of the flood the bible says the flood began on the seventeenth day of the second month. Since this is pre-levitical this is the secular calendar and not the Jewish religious calendar. This occurs in the month or Heshvan, which begins this year, is the 15th November in the Julian calendar. 
    This past Wednesday morning, October 22, 2008, while lying in bed, I heard in the spirit one “click”.  It sounded like a latch had closed. I awoke and rose up in bed and listened in the natural but heard nothing but the stillness of the night. 
    I was very puzzled and began to seek the Father as to what it meant. Then later during the day I felt like I should look at the countdown calendar to see if this “click” could be of any significance to the three point nine year countdown. 
    There is was, thirty-six days to go to November 25, 2008. A tenth of a year is 36 days. The click was the last click before in the countdown the angel had given me. Also, October 22, 2008 was the first day after the last day of the Feast of Booths. Then the “click” I heard in the spirit and 36 days later will conclude the three point nine year countdown.  

     

    All the years I’ve wondered about this and told only a handful of people and now we are so close to something, which will initiate natural and spiritual events spoken of in Daniel. 

     

    If you watch any news you couldn’t help but notice that the world economy is in a desperate death spiral. What could be next? There are so many things we could speculate about but the most likely could be Israel attacks Iran. Think about it, if Obama is elected president Israel will certainly feel pressure to do something before he takes office. Currently the Israeli government is in chaos. The world economy is poised to crash. Iran continues to threaten Israel, United Kingdom and the US as well as the many terrorists who would like nothing better than strike the free world countries.

    In the near future I will begin to share with you other mysteries God has given me for these times. The only delay has been due to the church’s unwillingness to listen. When I’m released by the Father I will show you the mysteries in the scriptures of the timeline of Christ return. 

    Keeping watching, be vigilant, pray always, and make preparation as the Bride of Christ, for we are entering into dangerous times…indeed, like the earth has never known.

     In Christ Service, 

     Bro. Bill

     



  • When God Tells You To Go

    Today is September 26, 2008, exactly five years since I resigned my position with a communication company in Dallas, Texas. In June of 2005, the Lord gave me a dream and the dream forevehandr changed the course of my walk with the Lord.

    Dream:

    I was sitting in my office at work when an angel came and stood looking over the high cubicle wall. He was tall but had no facial features other than a green Gumby-looking shaped head. The angel was wearing a green blazer; I could see that he had another green blazer in his left hand and draped over his left shoulder.

    The angel said, “It’s time to go!” I said, “Am I being fired?” The angel said, “It’s time to go!” I said, “What about all my stuff?” He said, “You don’t need that anymore.” I got up from my desk, walked down a long hallway with the angel to my left.  I was staring at the blazer knowing that it represented a mantel. This was the same long hallway that security walked employees out as they were being laid off.  The angel escorted me out the door and the dream ended.

    My wife and I knew this dream confirmed other words and dreams we had received from Holy Spirit, that we were to quit our jobs and move back home to where we are currently living. 

    trailWe both had great paying jobs.  We owned a five bedroom home with a three car garage situated on a lake in a very quiet and secluded area in the city. It would seem like allot to give up but we just wanted to follow God’s plan for our lives no matter what we had to give up.  I knew I had to pursue Him in this journey to obtain the mantel.

    We put our home on the market and waited for it to sell. We waited and waited but nothing came of it. As September rolled around I re-read a prophecy that a man of God had given me; it said that if we would step out in faith, God would come in behind us like never before. Therefore, even without our home being sold, we decided to jump out in faith.  No matter how much faith we had or how clearly we had heard God’s word to us, the house payments keep coming in month after month.

    On September, 26, 2005 I left my job, my work place ministry, some friends, our beloved home, church, city, lifestyle and everything that we loved in order to follow Him. God doesn’t ask everyone to follow this path, because few are willing to go the far with Him. It takes an extreme measure of faith and the honor of God to follow Him wherever He asks us to go.

    Before moving to our new location we had been supernaturally yoked with our new Pastors. They shared many accounts where they had left great wealth, homes and cities to go where He had asked them. It truly helped to strengthen our faith and resolve because it seemed to us that they had been through much worse than what we were facing.  Read Elisha Followed Elijah…

    desertJust as Elisha followed Elijah through hard places, when you’re truly yoked with a ministry, you may find that you go through many of the same things they went through. Elisha followed Elijah to Gilgal, Bethel, Jericho and finally to Jordan. 

    The word Gilgal actually means “rolling away our reproach,” Bethel means, “making our approach to God, Jericho and fighting the battle for God” and Jordan means, “entering into death in Christ.”

    This is the path you will certainly take if you’re going to follow God’s plan for your life. We lived for four years and eleven months on some savings we had tucked away and virtually no other income what-so-ever, and our house didn’t sell for nineteen months!  We were living for God and pursuing Him with everything in us while still making large house payments during those months.  God did sustain us through it all and spiritually we have been transformed in so many ways that we hardly really relate to our old selves while back in “Egypt.”

    dry groundMy advice to anyone who believes they are to move or to do something for God, is being totally sure and unequivocally confident that you have heard God in the matter and not just in your soul. I believe a key that is often neglected in following God’s plan, is the failure to journal their dreams, their visions and the words they hear from the Father.  It’s impossible to remember in detail everything you are hearing and seeing to any great degree. In fact, if you will be faithful to journal, God will give you more and more things because you are honoring Him and listening carefully to Him. Perhaps journaling will be the subject of one of my blogs in the future.

    Now, both my wife and myself are employed, we’re actually working together for an awesome company, with an awesome boss in work place ministry.  We mentor drug and alcohol addicts with love and the word of God.  We now have regular income once again and are we’re beginning to get our life back, but we’re different, so different!

    We look back on our five years in the wilderness as a holy and precious time with God.  He led us through a slow death in Him yet at the same time a new life in Christ.  

    God is faithful! If you will continue to be faithful to Him and to His house, He will prove Himself faithful to you and your house!

    Go and be blessed in Him,

    Bro. Bill



  • I’ve Come For Your Words (Angelic Visitation)

    On January 11, 2008, I heard the Father say, “In the coming days you will see a light in your house from time to time. When you see this light, it is the time of the descending angel’s arrival, he comes for your prayer requests, give him your prayer requests for an express delivery to Me”.I told my wife about what I had heard in my quiet time and that we needed to get a mental list of prayer requests ready for the angel’s arrival.

    On January 14, 2008, while my wife and I were sitting on the front porch engaged in a wonderful intimate conversation, I said to her ”Years ago when I saw the vision of the second coming I was in the Spirit.” When I said that, I was suddenly shot in the heart by what felt like an arrow or perhaps pierced by a sword. My body rocked back in the chair and I became weak and tearful as I began to experience the passion that Jesus has for me. When I looked at my wife, I saw an open vision of her naked before me and I felt the highest level of passion a man could possibly have or understand for a woman. The passion I was feeling for her was a God-kind of passion that burned in me. Jesus was portraying to me that what I was feeling towards my wife, was actually how he feels towards his bride, Jesus the passionate lover of our souls.

    On January 15, 2008, at 3:23 AM I awoke and said to myself, “Ten minutes until 3:33 AM” and went back to sleep. Often through the years, God has awakened me at 3:33 AM and I know many other saints who will tell you the same thing. Indeed my wife woke me at 3:33 AM and the following is an excerpt from her journal of an angel sent by God.

    Journal Entry January 15, 2008 “Rayneous”

    “At 3:33am I was awakened and I knew there was an angel downstairs in the hall in front of the door, in just moments, the angel was at the foot of our bed and facing us.

    At first I felt afraid and couldn’t open my eyes, and during the entire time he was at our bed, Bill and I both felt our insides melt like wax, I had tears, we felt heat, cold, nausea and weakness. The large, very gentle angel was half man and half horse, (a centaur) he was completely flesh colored, he wore a small, silver helmet, had blonde hair and had a bow and arrow pulled in his hands.

    The angel lowered the bow and arrow and placed them into a holder on his left side, he took out a gold writing instrument and a scroll of paper and was poised ready to write and said to me, “I am Rayneous, you may call me Ray, I’ve come for your words.” After I whispered to him all my goals, desires and prayers, I tapped Bill on the shoulder and said, “Bill, there’s an angel at the foot of our bed, his name is Rayneous and he’s come for our words. I told him my prayers and desires now you do the same.” Rayneous gently walked over to Bill’s side of the bed and was ready to write as Bill spoke softly.

    I have a knowing that this angel walked through every room of our home before leaving. Bill and I lay in bed until 4:34am unable to return to sleep and with the symptoms as described above. When we were able to do so, we got up out of bed and went on to our regularly scheduled morning prayer early. The hour seemed to go by as fast as 10 minutes!”

    Later that morning when when we recalled the event of the night, we knew that the angel that had shot me in the heart only hours before was the same angel that came for our prayers. Often, when we know that an angel has arrived hours or a days before they actually reveal to us their assignment.

    Scripture Reference:
    Daniel 10:12 Then he said to me, “Do not be afraid, Daniel, for from the first day that you set your heart on understanding {this} and on humbling yourself before your God, your words were heard, and I have come in response to your words.



  • Fall On Me (Angelic Visitation)

    policemanIn the night of January 27, 2008, during the fourth watch (3:00 AM -6:00 AM), I was awakened by the presence of an angel standing at the foot of the bed. I rose up and said, “Lord open my eyes to see” and then I saw the angel with my spiritual eyes. He was dressed in dark blue police uniform. I waited for a few moments and sensed that there was nothing required of me at that moment and went back to sleep.

    Our daughter, Wendy was dropped off at our house by her husband that same morning. We asked her when we needed to give her a ride to work and she said she was going to hang around for a while. Wendy is a great employee and really loves her job so this struck me as very odd for her.

    I went upstairs to pray for wisdom and thought about the angelic visitor, which came to me early that morning. I asked the Father, “What does a policeman angel come to do? “ He said, “Arrest!” Then He gave me the song, “Fall On Me” performed by the “Shekinah Glory Ministry”. It had to be that song performed by that choir. I knew I had to find this CD immediately and play it. I grabbed it and ran downstairs and as I breezed past Wendy I said, “All I know is that I’ve got to play “Fall On Me” and I’ve got to play it now“!

    As the music began to play and the words came forth:
    Fall on meFall on me Let your manifested glory fall on me…
    The holy presence of God began to fall on me. I now was in the arms of the “policeman angel” right there in the den. I was being arrested by an angel sent by God, while I bowed at the sofa.

    The spirit of travail fell on me and I began to go into levels of travail I didn’t know existed. I felt a powerful squeezing sensation all over my body, but mostly on my head. I was in a head lock by an angel of God, an arresting angel.

    As the songs on the CD played one by one and the intensity of the music would rise and fall, the intensity of the travail followed. At the end of the tenth song the spirit of travail lifted. When I rose up ad looked for Wendy, I saw her laying in tears on the kitchen floor. She had been overcome by the His presence and power also.

    Young Choir Members SingingI believe the spirit of travail is one of the most holy things of God and so powerful when He moves on the human spirit man to intercede on behalf of a soul in need. As the words in the song say, “Some soul is depending on you Lord”, “Someone one is looking to mend a broken heart”, “Someone is lonely and they need you to comfort them”, “Someone’s lost and they need your guidance”.

    As soon as the spirit of travail came it lifted after the tenth song finished on the CD titled “Holy of Holies”. The glorious manifestation lasted about fifty minutes.

    My dear saints of God, may we never forget what a compassionate God we serve. My prayer is that we all come to the knowledge of Him. Will you we seek to know who He is, His nature, and His character and to know the depths of His love beyond all understanding?

  • An Angel Came in the Window Today

    Jupiter and IoOn numerous occasions through out the years, I have received major revelations in the mysteries and secrets of God during a certain planetary alignment in regards to the end-times. I first recognized this when I reviewed my journals and compared the dates to the celestial alignments at the time that I received revelation and noticed that Venus & Mercury were in conjunction during these times. During these events I also noticed an increase in angelic visitations, dreams and visions. However, angelic activity isn’t limited to only this celestial event in any way. (Conjunction means when two celestial bodies appear near one another in the sky.)

    Angelic Visitation Today:
    On Wednesday 3/19/08 at 4:20 PM, I was sitting in my quiet-time chair with my kitty in my lap, suddenly the vertical blinds in the window behind my head began to spread open and close.
    The blinds moved as the wings of the angel flapped. This occurred 4-5 times and needless to say, it got my attention.Jae, my wife, came downstairs a few minutes later and sat in the chair to my right. I told her that an angel had just come in the house through the window behind my head. Our cat moved to a new vantage point on the top of the love seat, staring at the blinds for a longest of time as we just sat still in the presence of holiness. Jae began to weep and felt the angel pass over and through her body as it moved deeper into the house. Then our cat hopped down and cautiously crawled into the window to snoop around behind the blinds to see what caused this strange activity.

    Many times over the years our cat would walk into our bedroom at night as the boards under her feet creaked. The first time I heard this the kitty was only 6 months old, weighing about 7 pounds. I’ve walked on the same areas of the floor that the cat does and I can’t make the boards creak, even to this day. Perhaps I discuss this subject in more detail in another blog some day soon.Note: I’m writing this blog at 12:30 AM and an angel just came down the hall and apparently its left wing bumped into the sliding folding door in the den entrance. Immediately I sensed an extreme holy presence come upon me. I said out loud, “Uh Oh!”

    A very strong anointing settled on my head and the back of my head began to throb. It seemed like the blood vessels in my head and neck were as big as my fist. I reached back to feel my head to see if it was bulging out and there wasn’t grotesque shapes going on.

    12:40 AM – I few minutes later I went and reclined in my quiet-time chair and began seeking the presence of the Lord again. An angel came up to me and put what felt like a blanket of holiness over me. As I began praise the Lord by saying “Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord”. Then I heard a tapping sound on the wall on the opposite side of the room.

    As I praised God it would continue…tap, tap, tap and when I stop praising, the tapping stopped. I started praising again and the tapping started up just like before. It sounded like it was coming from the outside of the house to the inside. After awhile I then retired to bed and slept like a baby all night.

    Major prophets have prophesied that this year the body of Christ will witness an increase of angelic activity like they have never known before.

    Man First Heard Faith in the Constellations

    In Gen:1:14 Then God said, “Let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night, and let them be for signs and for seasons and for days and years;

    Seasons is the Hebrew word: mow`ed which means “appointed place, appointed time, meeting” I don’t want to fill your head with allot of celestial jargon here in this blog, but I do want you to stretch your thinking a bit to take hold of some Biblical truth. Now before we move into the meaning of the current alignment I want to show you one more series of verses so you will be open to what I’m saying.

    Rom. 10:17-18 So faith {comes} from hearing, and hearing by the word of Christ. v18 But I say, surely they have never heard, have they? Indeed they have; “THEIR VOICE HAS GONE OUT INTO ALL THE EARTH, AND THEIR WORDS TO THE ENDS OF THE WORLD.”

    Their voice in verse 18 is the heavens as given in Psalms 19:1-4: The heavens are telling of the glory of God; And their expanse is declaring the work of His hands. Day to day pours forth speech, And night to night reveals knowledge. There is no speech, nor are there words; Their voice is not heard. Their line has gone out through all the earth, And their utterances to the end of the world. In them He has placed a tent for the sun.

    See the gospel preached below in the planets

    Mercury Venus Occult 3/19-24/08

    Mercury: Coming and coming again(traveler)or coming and returning (Mercury, the consoling prospect that He should return with intensified luster) (Think ascending & descending as in angels)

    Venus: Like those, an emblem of the Church of the faithful under all dispensations, The star of beauty, As above all others splendid (Venus, the beauty of His sister-spouse (Song 4:9,10) the Church)

    Aquarius: The pouring forth of spiritual blessings.

    Summary: Basically, the celestial alignment means that Mercury represents angelic (Gabriel) activity and Venus represents the church (ekklesia), and in the constellation Aquarius is the “pouring forth”. Boil it down we are going to see the out pouring of gifts to the church marked by an increase angelic activity.
    It’s kind of hard to see in the picture below but if you look right where the spout of water is being poured out in Aquarius you can vaguely make out the two planets in occult. I tried everything I know to do with graphics and still couldn’t get a better picture.


  • When God Fills the Well

     

    I can’t help myself, I believe my God to be an extreme God! I believe He is a God who wants to manifest Himself to His children in an intimate and glorious relationship.

    I want to share some supernatural manifestations of God we have experienced while living at Durham. Durham is what we call our house due to its location in our town. When God directed us to move from the Dallas area in 2003, we bought my wife’s childhood home and moved into it October 3, 2003
    We left behind our home, church, income, friends and a lifestyle in the Dallas area we had flourished in for many years. Upon arriving and inspecting this house, we found it to be in shambles from years of neglect, we could do nothing but cry and feel sorry for ourselves. We sometimes think of the first night we spent in the house, it had 7 window panes broken out, un-level floors, and a bathroom that we hated to use.

    As we sat there in a small upstairs bedroom on a Saturday night, we couldn’t help but stare at the pitiful condition of the room. The people who had rented the house before us bought it had allowed their kids to paint the room in an awful green and blue.

    We were sitting side by side in two lawn chairs, with our feet propped up on a milk crate and a 5 gallon bucket, staring at the wall. We couldn’t help but think of what we had left back in Egypt. We had all but fallen off the edge of the earth, only our pastors, and family had a clue what we were going through. I knew then, in order to survive in the wilderness, we would have to go to extreme levels of faith.

    In my quiet time one morning, Holy Spirit showed me that when Abraham left the familiar land to go fulfill God’s plan, he must first dig a well in each new place he journeyed. Abraham understood that without a reliable source of water, it would be impossible to survive in the harsh land. (Gen. 21:30).
    In desperation, I pressed into God and imagined as I prayed to Him that I was digging a well each time I prayed in my secret place. Day after day I would visualize digging a well with every confession and profession of faith.

    As with any well being dug, you must dig and dig, not knowing when or if you’re going to strike water. I continued to petition God to give us a well in which to drink, just as He gave unto Abraham. Abraham said in Genesis 21:30, “You shall take these seven ewe lambs from my hand so that it may be a witness to me, that I dug this well.”

    The Well Filled Overnight
    One morning, in November of 2003, when I walked down the stairs, I walked into the tangible presence of God. It filled the lower story of our one-hundred year old house. I called to my wife Jae, who was still upstairs, and said, “You had better get down here; the presence of God has filled this place!” She came down and joined me in the living room and we just set there in the heavenly presence of God, soaking in this glorious manifestation. I had felt this presence before on several occasions, but this time it was in our home, from our feet to above our heads, over flowing, flooding our entire being was His glorious presence. This holy manifestation remained for an hour or more and then it lifted.

    A few months later, when I came downstairs in the early morning for quiet time, I opened the door to the living room and again, felt the tangible presence of God, yet even stronger than the time before. It was holy, it was electric, it was heavenly and my body tingled in the glorious presence of God.  Read Portals of Heaven, Ancient Gates

    I sat down in my “quiet time” chair and suddenly I felt an intense, powerful sword, slowly being pushed down into me, from the top of my head down into my abdomen. As it moved downward through my body I could feel every centimeter of its travel. My body shook as I was compressed under this extreme, penetrating power of God, I could do nothing but surrender to what God was doing in me.

    I can’t tell you how long this manifestation lasted but when my wife, Jae came downstairs from her quiet time that morning, the anointing rested upon me and it still lingered in the room. When I laid my left hand on her forehead, she could feel the anointing flow over her head as well. Truly, I had just experienced a divine encounter at the well.

    A Well Is a Place of Divine Appointment
    In Genesis, chapter 24, Rebekah’s destiny was at the well, she had gone there many times but on this particular day, her life changed forever for she was about to meet her Isaac.

    Blue Water Swirling in a WhirlpoolIn John 4: 6-7 “Now, Jacob’s well was there. Jesus therefore, being wearied with [his] journey, sat thus on the well: [and] it was about the sixth hour. There cometh a woman of Samaria to draw water: Jesus saith unto her, Give me to drink.” The Samaritan woman’s life was about to change forever. God doesn’t manifest Himself to us just to give us a thrill but to change us eternally. The effects of our change can impact our family, our city, our region and our nation.

    How many divine encounters have we missed due to our busy undisciplined lives in which we don’t come to the well or when we do come, we don’t allow time to sit and wait for Him at His well?

    In John 7:27 “Now on the last day, the great {day} of the feast, Jesus stood and cried out, saying, “If anyone is thirsty, let him come to Me and drink.”

    God will meet you at the well. Come to His well and come often for you never know which day He will be waiting for you there. Come, Come to His well!

  • Wise Men Still Travel To See Him

    Young Couple at Beach at DuskOne thing I have learned is that getting away from the familiar can stimulate your hearing of what the Spirit of God is saying. Sometimes when your driving and your flesh is occupied, your spirit man will hear God say things that you may not have be available for otherwise. And He said to them, “Come away by yourselves to a secluded place and rest a while.” Mark 6:31
    My wife Jae and I like to get away for a time of prayer and relaxation at least once a year and this year we decided to travel to Moravian Falls, NC for our sabbatical. Each time we have gone on a trip to specifically seek God in an intimate way, we have experienced hearing His voice, many dreams, visions and supernatural events, and this trip had plenty. We only wished we had allowed ourselves more time for our divine get away.
    Moravian Falls is located in the heart of Wilkes County, North Carolina. The town derives its name from a 35-foot waterfall and also from the Moravian brothers who settled there in 1753.
    Moravian Falls is known to be an open portal or gate, which was established when the Moravian religious group held prayer on the mountain tops 24 hours a day for 100 years! Numerous ministries such as Rick Joyner, Gary Oates, Larry Randolph, Bob Jones and others all report that this is indeed a special place.

     

    From my journal – Feb. 22-24, 2008
    Journal Entry – 2/22/08
    Angelic Manifestation -I felt about 7 or 8 gentle puffs of air being blown in my right ear. As each puff of air entered my ear canal, my right ear drum would pop in sync with the puffs. I looked around and saw no one there blowing my ear. (That was comforting to know. Ears represent spiritual hearing. This manifestation is related to an opening of my right spiritual ear.)

    -Vision-
    Journal Entry – 2/23/08
    “I saw a massive army marching down a road, they were dressed like Roman guards during the time period Jesus walked on earth. They marched by me shoulder to shoulder, step for step, in a powerful moving synchronized force. I watched in awe as they marched past me with their shields, swords, spears and shiny helmets. As I looked to the front to see who the person in command was, I saw Jesus, dressed in a brilliant white robe, He walked like a man on a mission.

    In the next scene of the vision, I was also marching in the ranks of this great army. Together, we made a thunderous sound as every man marched in cadence. I looked as far ahead as I could and saw Jesus at the front, He was riding on a white horse as He was leading us over the rolling hills apparently into battle.”

    Journal entry 2/24/08 – I heard the Father say to me in the night, “There will be an increase of violence in the California prison system this year“. (Please join me in prayer to speak what God’s word says about the heathen’s rage against authority. There’s over a 177,000 prisoners in California)

    After returning home from our trip, I had four dreams which God gave me during the night that showed me our sabbatical was indeed fruitful and that we would never be the same again.
