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.



  • 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.
