Waking up to the sound of His voice

waking-up-to-the-sound-of-his-voice

‘I’m fully satisfied as with a rich dinner, my mouth speaks praise with joy on my lips – whenever I ponder you on my bed, whenever I meditate on you in the middle of the night’ Psalm 63. 4-6

I had an interesting dream the other night – it was about Lonnie Frisbie of the Jesus People Movement. Although he died in 1993, in the dream he was still alive today, but had been totally forgotten about. God showed me the legacy he had left in terms of the impact he had on John Wimber and the Vineyard movement, yet he is largely unknown and not really honoured. He was holding very small gatherings with 5/6 people and I had this intense desire to go and hang out with him in these meetings with the remnant of revival that he was carrying. I woke up thinking that the revivals of old are not dead, they’re just forgotten and dormant, hidden by a spiritual amnesia and blanket of slumber.

There’s something about remembering what God once did, holding it within your heart and allowing that fire to awaken something new today. The day after I had that dream I was on the train passing through Bradford, the city where Smith Wigglesworth lived. As the train pulled in, sitting on the platform was the spitting image of Smith Wigglesworth; an old Yorkshire gent, moustache and all just looking at me. For a split second as I looked at him Smith Wigglesworth stared right back at me and God said to me “Smith Wigglesworth isn’t dead either.” The anointing that Smith carried is alive today. It isn’t dead, although so many churches act like it, it is just forgotten and dormant. We might remember the person but the church has forgotten the anointing he carried, the Presence, the Fire on his life.

Wakey wakey

Several years ago while we were youth workers in Antioch Church in Llanelli, we were holding our usual Wednesday night youth meeting. We had just had a conference where the youth had been particularly impacted about revival and God had started to really stir something on their hearts. I asked the youth group whether God had spoken to them anything that week. I had given them a word the previous week that they were going to be given new shields of faith and I was interested if anything had happened. Most shrugged “no…” but a young 15 year old girl looked and said “Yes… actually… In the middle of the night God woke me up and I heard him say “Go to Moriah Chapel, (the place where the 1904 Welsh revival started) and say ‘Wakey wakey’ to the angel there…”

Louise told me and the rest of the youth group what had happened that week; that she had gone to the chapel the next day after she had been woken up in the middle of the night by God. The chapel happened to be next to her sixth form college. When she got there she stood looking at Moriah Chapel deliberating about what to do. There was a bus stop filled with people next to it. She looked at the bus stop and back at Moriah Chapel and whispered “wakey wakey”. God spoke to her in that moment and said “Is that how much you want revival??” so challenged and even while people in the bus stop watched, she yelled “WAKEY WAKEY!!”

The story of what happened next has spread like a wild fire around the world. Louise watched as a  15 /20 foot angel yawned and stepped out of the chapel. It then spoke to her. It said “I am the angel of the 1904 revival and you’ve just woken me up” Louise stood there thinking ‘what on earth…!!!’ and the angel said “I fell asleep because people stopped calling out for revival”. The angel then wandered away up the road while Louise stood there gob smacked.

Several prophets have met the angel since. One prophet bumped into the angel unaware of what had happened, and asked the angel what it was doing. The angel replied “a 15 year old girl just woke me up.”

God woke Louise up with the sound of His voice in the middle of the night and brought her into a supernatural encounter which awoke something that had been dormant since 1904.

I don’t believe we have seen the full manifestation of what that angel is about today but in the months that followed the angelic experience our youth group went through an amazing time of encounter with the Holy Spirit. We experienced physical healings for the first time, we were opened up to the supernatural; gold and silver dust became common and other angelic encounters happened quite frequently. Some kids from the local community came along and were saved. It got to the point where teenagers who had never been to the prayer room before, came in and were falling out under the Presence of God as soon as they were prayed for. One kid screamed and ran out the room we met in as his eyes opened to the angels there. He physically saw them. Amazing events that opened up my life to a whole new world. It has marked the last 10 years of my life.

I believe that the angel from Moriah Chapel was commissioned for Awakening in 1904 and it still is today. It hasn’t abandoned its position (Jude 1.6). A well known minister in the US encountered the angel recently and it said to him “Wakey Wakey is my name, that is what I was commissioned for – awakening”. In the lead up to the 1904 revival Evan Roberts had a season of intense visitation in the night. Such a heavy presence of God would rest in his room and would wake him up night after night. God would wake him up with an intensity of His Presence, enough that could shake the nation and would speak with this General of the future.

Remember

It is funny how quickly we forget what God did for a nation. Spiritual amnesia causes us to forget what He did. In the dream about Lonnie, spiritual amnesia caused people to forget the anointing Lonnie walked in. Spiritual amnesia is like a toxic fog of hopelessness, confusion and doubt which comes to put out the fire and abort the promises of God over our lives. Spiritual amnesia ultimately leads to deception. It happened in the Garden “Did God really say…?” 

The Israelites were constantly reminded in the Old Testament- ‘Do not forget the Lord, remember what I have done for you…’ King David would lie awake in the night hours and remember the stories of old. It would stir his heart and awaken something new within him. 

Why am I talking about this now? Because I believe that God wants to bring us into fulfilment and awakening. There is a significant connection between remembering and Awakening – One of the jobs of the Holy Spirit is to help us remember what Jesus said (John 14.6). Why? because we have been given every Spiritual Blessing in the Heavenly places, we have been given Fullness in Christ. We are New Creation beings but have forgotten where we came from. This truth can get shrouded in an amnesia which chains up our inheritance and stops us from being able to walk out fulfilment… “Did God really say…?” But when we begin to remember, when we begin to honour what God once said, God can ignite this with a fire that burns away amnesia’s toxic fog of doubt, confusion and deception. Remembering the sound of His voice awakens us to a new reality of Heaven today.

In the remembering God’s voice wakens us to a door of the supernatural where we begin to understand things which Heaven has never forgotten. Heaven can’t forget because they are in the present reality of it now. It is not a dead memory, it is a present reality, a fire that constantly burns.

The angels remember the day when the Presence of awe and wonder began to fall on the meetings Evan Roberts lead. But more than that they rest in the present reality of it at the feet of Jesus today. They know what Evan Roberts tapped into. Heaven remembers, it has a record of what it was like when Wesley began to stir himself with the fire and watch as the people began to gather around him in a realm of Heaven. But it is more than a story it is a living fire, accessible through an open door today which Jesus opened through his life and death. God remembers the Might which Smith Wigglesworth operated in and the desire that exploded out of him to see people free from infirmity, that Gift of Faith is freely available today.

Visit encounters of old, remember what God once did and let him awaken you with His voice to fire today, fresh fire, fire we have never experienced before, fire that the revivalists and saints of old walked in; Apostolic Fire, that has been dormant since the days of Cuthbert’s wild fire revival. But its not just an old fire, it’s alive today, birthing something new, something for our day, something not been seen before on the earth; something unique. This anointing is not dead. His voice is whispering “wake up to reality”.

The Winds of Change are ringing the Wild Bells

13254238_10154139910235883_7380716280858498045_n

‘Love is a dangerous word to those who fear losing control. Love is a wild wind and no one knows which way it blows’ Jason Upton 

Big Ben

The wild winds of change are rattling through the UK once more, silencing the old religious answers and ways of doing stuff. Wild bells of fulfilment are ringing again.

A few weeks ago at the last Northern Glory I prophesied that we are in the season of ‘fulfilment’. I prophesied that as a sign of this Big Ben would be on the main news within a couple of weeks.

Sure enough a few weeks later Big Ben was in the main news because the bell is being silenced for several months for repair work. (Obviously I didn’t know this when I prophesied it). It is first time repair work like this is to be done on it in 160 years. Read about it here.

So what’s the significance of all this then? God’s voice rings louder than the noise from the age old traditions of man. God is interrupting business as usual to challenge the ways we have done stuff before. We love relying on our trusted and traditional formulas so we import the models, the programs, the things that seem to work in revivals all around the world, we get the books and listen to the podcasts, whatever works elsewhere, we’ll try it! Everything except the actual whack.  We love to rely on the manmade instead of the mystical. It can hide our unbelief!

All the noise made by our striving is being silenced. In the space the sound of the voice of God at rest, in fulfilment and living in Grace is being heard. It’s the sound of the Wild Bells from Heaven. It is time for us to get whacked, get a bit of the anointing and pioneer something new which will have global impact.

God is speaking and it’s the sound of fulfilment that is ringing out. It is calling the wild fire prophets to attention and the crazy apostles to wake up. It is sounding to those who have dared to believe there’s a different way, to those have believed in promises. The sound of the Father’s faithfulness to fulfil his promises can be heard again. The bells of fulfilment are ringing out to the prophetic promises that are hanging over the UK.

Simeon

Simeon is a symbol for our time. God started to speak to me about Simeon and I messaged a prophet friend of mine who said they too had been thinking about Simeon that same day.

Simeon was a prophet waiting on the fulfilment of God’s promises in Luke 2. His name means ‘he has heard’.  He was a man the Spirit was on. He lived in the anointing. He had heard and seen something different, something wild from Heaven which had stirred his soul to believe; he was filled with a Joy and anticipation that got him whacked. He had experienced something powerful enough to determine his life and lived to see the fulfilment of it. When the baby Jesus turned up in the temple Simeon announced ‘Sovereign Lord as you have promised… My eyes have seen your salvation…which you have prepared for in the sight of all nations.’ Simeon lived to see fulfilment and the faithfulness of God.

It is interesting to compare him to Zechariah, John the Baptist’s father. Both men eventually saw the fulfilment of prophecies. Both men saw something, Zechariah had an angelic visitation from Gabriel about the same events but responded in unbelief.  Zechariah couldn’t believe there was something different to business as usual and like Big Ben was silenced. Simeon however, lived in the Spirit and caught a glimpse of something which would affect nations, he met Jesus.

Jesus was and is fulfilment, he embodies fulfilment. He wasn’t just a Prophet but was the fulfilment of the Prophetic Word.  Jesus says of himself in Matthew that He came to fulfil the Law and the Prophets. Galatians 4 says ‘But when the fulfilment of the time came, God sent his Son.’ Hebrews describes it as being the ‘culmination of the ages’. So in the incarnation you have God coming, bringing fulfilment, answers, breakthrough. He is the Manifestation of Fulfilment. It is in the Father’s very nature that He is faithful to fulfil His Promises and so Jesus is God’s answer, Jesus embodies God’s faithfulness. He is the embodiment of fulfilment.

Jesus is the sound spoken from the Father’s lips. He is the sound of the wild fire of God’s love. He is the sound of fulfilment.

Emmaus

Fulfilment is walking next to you. But you won’t believe it until you see it. I love the story of the guys on the road to Emmaus in Luke 24. They were walking filled with disappointment, downcast, thinking the promises they had believed in were over, Jesus had failed, it was all a lie. Yet Jesus, having overcome death, resurrected and living in the fulfilment of all things and was standing right next to them. Jesus began to speak and they started to hear a different sound from Heaven. As they listened to his voice their eyes opened to see Jesus face to face – the Manifestation of their desires right before them. The Fire on the voice of God burned in their hearts. It burned fulfilment and the breakthrough of Jesus into them. It burned through the dark clouds of their disappointment to bring breakthrough to their hearts. This caused them to enter into fulfilment.

There’s a different sound from Heaven ringing out. God is speaking and His voice carries the wild Fire of His love that will burn in your heart. It manifests fulfilment to the promises He has spoken. It brings the Wild Fire of breakthrough to rest in our lives so that we can say like Simeon, ‘As you have promised… now my eyes have seen…’ The face of Jesus is being revealed and is being branded into our hearts. This is causing the manifestation and release of fulfilment to the promises over our lives. Promises are going to be fulfilled right in front of our eyes.

The manifestation of fulfilment

Wesley is a guy who walked in fulfilment, a true prophet, when he walked around he brought the Wild Fire of breakthrough. He embodied fulfilment in that he walked in the accomplishments of Jesus; authority, power and lived in Christ’s breakthrough. He had an encounter with Jesus which ignited his heart with a Wild Fire – this lead him to say his now famous phrase ‘my heart was strangely warmed’. It was this fire that people gathered to see in the thousands. They climbed trees to catch a glimpse of this guy to be warned by other people that they would fall out under the power of God. Thousands would be gathered, shaking under the shadow of the Fire that Wesley carried. He truly impacted this nation. He said ‘catch on fire and others will come to see you burn’.

I believe fulfilment looks different for different people, obviously we each have promises from God that are different and will be for different areas of life.

But I believe that one of the things that is coming is the same Fire that affected Wesley. The sound of Heaven, wild bells ringing out is releasing this Wild Fire. Two guys on the road to Emmaus had an encounter with the embodiment of fulfilment and it burned a breakthrough in to their hearts. Jesus spoke and it warmed their hearts like Wesley.

So to try and summarise what God is saying here:

  • God is challenging the traditional religious ways of doing stuff that come from the business as usual type mindset.
  • Zechariah and Simeon are symbolic of this time. Zechariah responded to the new with unbelief and was silenced. Simeon lived in the anointing and responded with faith… ‘as you have promised… now my eyes have seen… which you have prepared in the sight of all nations…’ He was privileged to see something in advance of nations.
  • We are in a time of fulfilment.
  • The voice of God will speak like a fire into disappointment and discouragement.
  • Jesus is the embodiment of fulfilment and He is causing the fulfilment of promises to appear in our lives.
  • Fulfilment will burn like a wild fire in our hearts so we can walk in it.
  • Fulfilment looks like different things but one aspect of it is the fresh manifesation of the John Wesley fire.

Fulfilment is not far off, His name is Jesus and He is standing next to you. He is upholding and sustaining your life.  His Fire will encounter you with resurrection reality. God is faithful to fulfil His promises. Listen to his voice, the sound of fulfilment will burn away your disappointment and discouragement. Be one ‘who has heard’ so that you can live in fulfilment. His Words will brand your heart with breakthrough.

 

God in the World

GLORY IN THE MIDSTIsaiah 6.3 says that ‘The earth is filled with Glory.’ Jesus came to bring the revelation of how close God really is to us- Emmanuel came into the world and walked among us with an Open Heaven above Him. He is still with us now and I love the fact that the Heavens are still open.  

It was a very strange experience moving from Wales to England after experiencing something very special in Wales from 2005- 2007. God was restoring a revelation of His Glory and Presence and it was life changing. We were with Church leaders who said ‘what ever the cost, we want the Presence’ and this is what broke out- it was full of the Wild Fire, it was totally Fun and filled with Life. It broke out on the streets with healings, signs and wonders. On one occasion we were on a trip to Ireland and had a tent at a psychic fair, giving prophecies, that sort of thing, and a realm of Glory manifested like a bomb going off which encircled the tent and everything in it for about 100 metres. As you walked towards it, in the middle of the street you could feel the intensity of the Glory and random passers by could feel the Presence of God- they actually stopped and said “what ever this is I want it.” I had heard of people doing prophetic stalls in psychic fairs before but I had never heard or seen anything like this. God was showing us something new that was totally about His Presence and His Glory manifesting in the world.

Moving back to England we realised that the church was in a totally different place here. God spoke to me from Proverbs 13.12- that disappointment from the unfulfilled prophecies about revival in the 90’s had made Hope Deferred come over the Church and had made its heart ‘sick’.  People were sick of the word ‘revival’ and wanted nothing to do with it. They were sick and disillusioned with the idea of a ‘move of the Spirit’ and so many people dismissed what was happening in Wales as just a ‘Welsh thing’. I heard numerous Prophets say that England had a Spirit of Infirmity over it because of Hope Deferred which confirmed what the Lord had spoken to me about. 

Over the last few years the Lord has been speaking about there being ‘a longing fulfilled’ – and of 2012/13 being about Hope Restored and I prophesied this at the start of this year. The testimony of Jesus is the Spirit of Prophecy. There are events that happen in the natural that are truly prophetic because they reflect in the natural a Spiritual Truth about what Christ has done – and so I Prophesied in Oct last year that Andy Murray would win Wimbledon this year – as a sign of Hope Restored and a longing fulfilled. On Facebook I prophesied again at the start of Wimbledon this year that Andy Murray would win and break a 77 year ‘curse’ of Hope Deferred in Tennis. And he Won!

It’s amazing that 2000 years ago Jesus broke a curse of Hope Deferred – a hope in a coming Messiah and brought fulfillment to every blessing, every prophecy, every Hope. Jesus is Fulfillment and in His Perfect and complete timing 2000 years ago Hope came, the Heavens were Opened, and humanity experienced a visitation of Revival: He has a name- Emmanuel- God is with us. Not only did God come but we were united with Him and His victory, His Breakthrough so that we have become the fulfillment of every prophecy of Revival! Revival has been some carrot on a stick for so long and people have not realised that they have got the carrot, they’ve got the stick! The win in Wimbledon is a Sign to the UK of Christ being a Longing Fulfilled to us and that He is the fulfillment of the true Prophecies over the UK.

And so all over England now there are people who are starting to believe that God can really impact the UK and do something special for us.

Jesus was born in the middle of the world, not a palace or church building cut off from everyone else. Something was born in Wales a few years – a revelation of the Glory in the world- a manifestation of His Presence – not in a conference or church meeting but in the world. In Bethel there was an incredible manifestation of the Glory Cloud in a conference and straight after this people starting prophesying that this would happen out in the world – in schools, in the mall etc. Imagine it happening in the midst of the world here, in the market place, in the schools, in the shopping malls, before it happens in a conference. There is something about the Hebredean Revival being a forerunner; an example for this- the Glory manifesting in the middle of a community, in the middle of the world; the Glory in the midst of the people. This is what we have considered revival to be in the UK- not a conference, not a meeting but something that actually brings a real change to a community. 

But it’s not about chasing after some pie in the sky dream- it is about realising who is already with us and what we have already got. It is not about trying to twist God’s arm, its about realising and believing what He has already done and what we have got right now- that is why there is No more Delay. The Glory is already Here. Emmanuel has already come, in the midst of the people, in the market place, in the home.

On Saturday we were invited to a Muslim’s family home to pray blessing and healing over them. So we went with a revelation that the Glory of the Lord covers the whole earth and that God is with us. And so in the midst of a Muslim household, in the middle of Ramadan we released a revelation of the Glory and watched as Jesus healed the mum and moved her to tears as we prayed blessing, favour and honour over her.

God spoke to me through a dream a couple of nights ago. In the dream I was at a party in Hyde Park – the student area of Leeds and a person was telling me about something that kept occurring in their parties. He said ‘suddenly everything stops and we all feel this Presence of Love and start hugging each other because we just become aware of Love. We don’t really know why or how it happens or what it is’. And then I saw the party- suddenly everything stopped, the Presence of Love and friendship filled the room and everyone started hugging each other!  In the dream God had supernaturally brought me to the party to show me that He was moving in the world.

I read this from Martin Scott and it really resonated with what I have been seeing:

This now is the phase that has been released in this Pentecost season. It is the time for the ‘afar off’. It is not to bring them in, the conversion is for the church as much as it is for the ‘afar off’ ones. Years ago a friend from Argentina who lived through the revival there put it this way. In one of their gatherings the outpouring was so strong that a bus was ‘hit’ by the presence of God. Driver and occupants became inebriated and he could not get the bus on the right route. Round and round the building he drove. Eventually they stopped the bus and pulled them in the meeting. Salvation and great rejoicing followed. Years later, my friend, says that was the day they misunderstood the shift. God was saying loudly that he was not in the building, he was on the bus, it was time to get the bus-ticket and get on the bus!! That event puts in story-form the shift. This is not just about ‘now for mission’. It is about a total shift of sight, and the beginning of a move among the ‘afar off’ ones.

Mystical Miracles

flyting saint

When we think about the supernatural we usually think of a miracle breaking the laws of physics. But when we consider that the laws of physics are based on the human observation of the world and are actually continually changing, as our understanding of areas like Quantum Physics expands we begin to see a God who works within the world without breaking any laws but does things we have no grid or understanding for at the moment.

I said in a previous post that when we get the mystical obsession of the Cross we will be able to handle some of the craziest miracles ever because our focus is right. As we understand Grace we begin to tap into what Jesus actually accomplished in re-creating us from the corrupt nature to restoring His image, the God Image within us- ‘For you have been born again, not of perishable seed, but of imperishable’ 1 Peter 1.23.

Is it possible that having been born from above as New Creations we are able to interact with the world from God’s perspective, rather than our limited human understanding of nature?

A few years ago my good friend Dave Vaughan from The New Ecstatics prophesied that the mystic realm was coming- a realm of the supernatural, which the Christian Mystics of old walked in that would carry with it extraordinary miracles, signs and wonders. The Christian Mystics walked in some crazy stuff- they tapped into a realm of the supernatural that was unprecedented – there is lots of documented evidence throughout church history describing saints whose bodies’ physically lit up and glowed in the Glory like St. Columba; many saints defied gravity, St John of the Cross and St. Theresa of Avila were known for this. On one occasion it is well documented that St.Theresa was lifted off the ground in front of 30 people! We actually found the church where this miracle happened in Avila in Spain and there is a lot of Glory there! Other saints caused objects to levitate and even others still changed weather patterns, raised the dead, or defied death themselves.

Recently prophets like William Branham have moved in this realm- he was praying for a girl who was close to death and she was struggling with faith to be healed. He commanded the cord for the light to spin around in a circle without touching it and the girl screamed out “I believe! I believe!” and was healed!

I love the Catholic Church. They have preserved the stories and documentation of countless unbelievable miracles for many hundreds of years. They don’t actually take miracle claims lightly. They are very thorough in their research and do not claim a miracle has happened until there has been an in depth investigation with medical reports if need be. To be called a Saint in the Catholic Church you have to do at least 3 miracles- 2 alive and 1 when your dead. The most recent person to be recognised as a Saint is Padre Pio who lived the most extraordinary life of the supernatural. He was alive during WW2 and was known to have levitated, bi-located, gone invisible and he was the priest who made famous the stigmata. When he had been dead for 30 or more years, priests dug his body up to find that it had not decomposed – he has now become known as an incorruptible. There is a documentary about it on Youtube, where it was filmed happening and you can even see his body. There are many incorruptibles in the Church and you can find a list of the top 10 incorruptible bodies with pictures here.

I recently watched an interview with Bobby Conner and Paul Keith Davis talking about some of the crazy supernatural things they have experienced- things like the cloud of witnesses showing up at their meetings and commanding the snow to fall in the middle of summer. I love that stuff.

For a few years we pursued the Supernatural but it’s amazing that as we have focused more on the Gospel and Christ’s Finished Work over the last few years, this ‘realm’ has become more and more a part of our normal lives. It has become accessible and has invaded the every day with a sense of wonder. Many years ago the Supernatural would have been too much to handle, because it would have taken our focus of the Cross, but now having got the Cross centralised in everything and gazing upon Him there is an effortless explosions of this Mystic Realm all around as the natural overflow of LIFE! The more we focus on the cross, the more it happens!

So here are some of the crazy miracles we have seen lately!

Objects defying gravity

pennies on wall 1When Karen and Mark Lowe stayed with us a few weeks ago they told us about some guys in Bethel commanding objects to defy gravity and stick to the wall. They had been doing it in Antioch and so we gave it a go. There is a lot of anointing on doing this and it is very fun. I commanded three pennies to stick to the wall, and my friend Dave Vaughan walked in and commanded a £1 coin to stick to the wall first time. They stayed up there for a long time and there was nothing in the natural which could have held them in place on their own. It’s a crazy thing to do in the natural but a lot of fun!

pennies on wall 2

Glowing

Countless saints have glowed when the Glory has shone out of them. Isaiah 60.2 says ‘See, darkness covers the earth and thick darkness is over the peoples, but the Lord rises upon you and his glory appears over you.’ Isn’t it amazing that this has literally happened? There have been times where the Glory has become visible on me and glowed, so much so people have seen it! It has freaked me out but been really cool. All that is happening is that the darkness of our ignorance about the Gospel is being dispelled by the light of Truth about Christ.

Supernatural winds

My wife and I have felt the winds of God physically when praying for healing many times. Hebrews 1.7 says he makes ‘Angels like the winds’. When they show up often we can feel a wind on our hands or arms. The people we have prayed for can usually feel the cold wind too and then heat on their body and then are healed! Glory!

Oil and Gold dust

A couple of weeks ago I was with a friend of mine called Kris Goudie, listening to Darrell Stott speak. Darrell is a guy who has seen genuine revival in Indonesia – and moves in the supernatural like no other.  In the worship time the tips of Kris’ fingers were covered in oil! I couldn’t believe my eyes! Kris has seen some of the craziest healings in shops as he goes about his daily business.

We’ve had the Gold dust appearing on our hands, and over people we have been talking to about it for a number of years. On one occasion I was talking to a group of teenagers who were non-believers. I told them the story of when we had had Gold dust appear on my hands in our youth group in Wales. Instantly about 4 or 5 of the girls’ hands were covered in Gold and one girl had gold dust completely cover her jacket to the point she had to dust it off! They got blinged up and were freaked out!

Wheelchair Healing

Physical healing is the most common supernatural things my wife and I see. My friend Dave Vaughan and I were reminiscing about some of the crazy supernatural things we have seen together over the years. In Sheffield city centre a number of years ago, A man in a wheel chair  went passed us who couldn’t walk. Compassion hit me and I grabbed Dave to pray for this guy. His friends and family that were with him said they had not seen him walk properly for 15 years, some of them had never seen him walk. We layed hands on him and commanded strength to enter his body. We stood him up and he was very weak, his legs could not hold his weight properly. As we prayed we could feel strength and virtue enter his body and suddenly from nowhere he started pacing up and down the street, striding back and forth. His friends and family could literally not believe it!! The man selling cigarette lighters next to us said “I have never seen anything like that before!!”

Knowing information and conversations

William Branham said when he got words of knowledge it was like peering over the top of a wall. I have certainly striven to see this happen to me but recently it has just happened naturally. I’ve looked at people and supernaturally known information about them. A couple of weeks ago I looked at a woman in a worship time in our house and instantly knew she had a foot infection on her right foot! She later came and embarrassingly asked for prayer for it and I told her I already knew!

It’s interesting that Jesus knew the intention of people’s hearts and the conversations people had about Him. Sometimes when I have talked to people who have issues with gossip and slander a horrible smell has manifested and I’ve known what they’ve been up to!

A number of years ago I was with James Mayers, and we asked God to speak to us the same thing at the same time. Instantly we both looked at each other and knew before we even said anything that God had spoken the same thing to the both of us. It was really strange we both just knew it. Then at the same time we both shouted out the exact same thing. We were totally amazed and were laughing for ages about it!

Rainbow comes out of hand and appears in the sky!

I was meditating on Hope and the promises of God and how the rainbow is the sign of promise; that Jesus walked in the fulfillment of God’s promises and prophecies, under the 7 fold Spirit of God (Isaiah 11) and that the Throne of God that is within us is surrounded by a rainbow (Rev 4.3 + Ezek 1.28). I was thinking that Jesus is the fulfillment of our Hope, and thinking about this being restored over the UK. As I was looking up at the sky I went into a trance, was lifted up in the sky and in a vision saw a rainbow come out of my hand like a river. As I saw it in the vision it instantly physically appeared in the sky next to the sun! Jesus is sat at the right hand side of the Father and we are seated in Christ – where did the rainbow physically appear? On the right hand side of the sun!

Translation

A leader in our church in S. Wales was in Bulgaria on a mission trip. For a few nights in a row he was woken up at the exact same time in the night. One night he was taken into a vision where suddenly he was back in the church building in Llanelli. He was walking around, and saw that there was a gathering happening, saw what people were wearing and even saw some visitors from a church in North Wales there. When he phoned his wife back in Wales and described the scene she was freaked out! They had all had a meal in the building that night wearing those clothes with the visitors from North Wales!

Crazy Dreams

God speaks through dreams. At the top of our street in our old house in Sheffield there was a derelict building. My wife had a dream one night that she was inside the building and it had become a cafe. She saw the unusual shape of the rooms, and was inside a particular room upstairs, saw the furniture, and strange multi-coloured stair case. A few weeks later we could see that work was being done on the building and low and behold it had become a cafe! When we went for a coffee she could not believe what she was seeing- it was exactly like her dream – furniture, room layout and even the multi-coloured stairs. She had never even been in that building before! When we went to pay, on the counter was a book entitled “Customer dreams- write your dreams in this book”!! I wrote in the book and talked to the owner about mystical Christianity – he was Very interested!
