On October 11, 2018, the Holy Spirit woke me up at 3:00 a.m. There was such a stirring of life of God’s power and presence coming to this earth. He led me to the book of Revelation. The Lord brought back to me a time 15 years ago when a childhood friend of my daughter’s committed suicide. We went to the funeral home and I saw what appeared to be his right eye twitch. I looked away thinking that was my eye twitching. I looked back and saw his eye twitch again. I was so perplexed. I didn’t really understand what I was seeing. That night, I had a dream. This young man was walking down the street I lived on. There was no one stirring about, no cars driving down the otherwise busy street or walking about. He came to my house and knocked on my door. I’ve often thought of that time and wondered had I had an inkling of what was going on, could I have done something to have helped that young man choose to live? The devastation of the family and his classmates were overwhelming and indescribable. I spent many hours listening, loving and encouraging my daughter and her friends through this devastating time. So many unanswered questions with no real understanding why this young man felt so hopeless in disparity. I remember the stories his friends told of how he would take the phone to his room so he could reach out to his friends at night. Why didn’t he reach out to his friends that night?? What happened?? Such a difficult time.
That morning on October 11, 2018, the Lord spoke to me and said, “You ask me to give you signs, wonders and miracles that will raise the dead to life, but you have doubt in your heart.”
Then the Lord moved me forward to another time about 11 years ago when I was at a church and the Lord kept bringing back the time of this boy’s death. So much so, I told a few ladies at the church about my experience and I said, “It looked real to me.” I noted I had learned about the experience of a man named Smith Wigglesworth who is noted for God using him to bring life back into a person after they died and had been dead for a while. The women said they knew who he was. But regarding my experience noting the twitching of his eye, one woman said, “No. It couldn’t have been.” I left it at that, still not fully understanding what God was telling me.
The Lord showed me how a seed of doubt was planted in me at that time, without me even realizing what was happening. The Lord spoke to me again and said, “Get rid of that seed of doubt.” I did so immediately and confessed that I know nothing is impossible with God.
Later that morning, at Victory Christian Center, I attend early morning prayer. There is a time of worship and devotion before we start intercessory prayer. During that time of meditation and worship, the Holy Spirit brought back to me that a couple weeks earlier I saw in the spirit angles around about us in the room and they touched people with their wings. The Word of God tells us in Malachi chapter 4 that “For you who revere my name, the sun of righteousness will rise with healing in its wings.” He heals us and he gives us the anointing to lay hands on others so they too will be healed. He does all of this and keeps angles around us to guard us and watch over us–even when we are unaware.
This same morning, as the Lord was speaking and revealing so much to me, he reminded me of a few days earlier while I was sitting at my desk at work, the devil was doing his normal and taunting and bringing back garbage in my past, from which I know I have long since been forgiven, delivered, healed, redeemed and long since transformed into newness in my life. I took authority, looked up from my computer and said, “Devil, you’re such a liar.” I heard in the spirit “Humph. We’ll see.” I said, “Back atcha!” Instantly, I saw the heavens open up. I saw trumpets blowing, angles singing “Hosanna, Glory to God in the Highest.” The heavens rejoice when we stand in our authority and take dominion over the enemy who attacks us and when we triumph over the ill-effects of this world.
At the end of prayer that morning on October 11, Pastor Sharon allowed me to share what God had been telling me, the dreams, the trumpets and the angles and that I saw Jesus standing in front of me with his arms held out from front of him, saying “Come to me, I will give you rest. When you ask, I will give it to you. Do not doubt.”
God is pouring out his spirit on all men and signs, wonders and miracles will follow. God is drawing us out, separating us with preparation for such a time as this and the time to come. God is drawing people out of the darkness into the light of his salvation. We are God’s chosen vessels to share the love and light of Christ that we know is the truth that sets us free. God is calling us to a higher level of trust and faith to believe him for the power that will raise the dead to life and bring healing in the lives of people around the world. God says, “You say nothing is impossible for me, yet you decide you want to pick and choose what you think I will and will not do. Will you not believe? I Am That I Am.”
My encounter with God was so profound. It was so remarkable. His presence was so strong and every word that was spoken and every prayer that was prayed that Thursday morning in prayer was led by the Holy Spirit, centered around those words. God’s power is coming forth. It is coming in fire and the fire of his love. A great revival is breaking forth. A great harvest of souls is coming into the Kingdom of Heaven. We are God’s chosen few. He has called us out and within us he is building up an army that will go forth and take back the lands God has given us and take dominion over this earth. He will cause us to triumph and prosper. All for the purpose of salvation. All for the purpose of setting captives free. All to show the world that God is God and he is all powerful. The last days are upon us. Remove the doubt!
