A few weeks ago, I shared an awesome testimony of a woman who was healed and delivered of mental illness. Today, I want to share about what has happened in the last few days – my first ever angelic encounter.
Have you ever had an angelic encounter? Maybe you have a gift to see angels ministering to people or had an angel give you a message?
Fifteen years ago during a prayer time I saw a bright light in the corner of the room and assumed it was an angel but nothing really happened. A few days ago, I had my first angelic encounter – I’m not able articulate the experience but trust you will be filled with faith reading what I can share.
Recently, our youngest, Malachi ended up getting a staph infection – we have no idea how he got it. We saw four doctors in seven days because he had a strand that is resistant to most known treatments (MRSA).
We were praying for a miracle!
On the morning of the sixth day I woke up at 2:58am and was able to look through our bedroom wall and saw a huge angel standing over Malachi.
The angel looked at me, raised his hands and put them on Malachi’s forearm. I knew instantly Malachi was healed.
Throughout scripture you see angels are servant created to do the will of God – ministering to fulfill His word.
Bless the Lord, you His angels, who are mighty, and do His commands, and obey the voice of His word.(Psalm 103:20)
Even Jesus had angels minister to Him – how much more do we need them to minister to us.
Then Jesus said to him, “Get away from here, Satan! For it is written, ‘You shall worship the Lord your God, and Him only shall you serve. Then the devil left Him, and immediately angels came and ministered to Him.(Matthew 4:10-11)
Next, I was flooded with revelation about the coming revival getting ready to hit Oklahoma City and the world.
Revival reawakens spiritual passion for the reality of the kingdom of God to be fully manifested in every area of life. Another way to think about revival is an outpouring of the Holy Spirit to turn dead religious monuments into living powerful movements.
The revelation played before me as if a movie and included two key elements.
The first was the distinction coming between those who know and believe in the Holy Spirit and those who don’t. People were given an opportunity to decide between publicly acknowledging the Holy Spirit is God and embracing Him or choosing to please those around them whom they didn’t want to offend.
Those who chose to try pleasing people ended up losing everything – everything they thought denying the Holy Spirit would help them to keep.
Whoever will confess Me before men, him will I confess also before My Father who is in heaven. But whoever will deny Me before men, him will I also deny before My Father who is in heaven.(Matthew 10:32-33)
The second element of the revival was miraculous power was released that we have never seen before – anchor and atmospheric miracles.
Citywide anchor miracles are when such a notable, remarkable miracle happens – everyone in a city knows about it and it anchors people’s faith into a supernatural God.
John G. Lake, a healing evangelist from the early 1900s, is the person in most recent history who is known to have walked in anchor miracles where an entire city would hear about miracles performed and believe in Jesus.
Atmospheric miracles were also common. One of the most distinct atmospheric miracles I saw was all glass eyes in a city being supernaturally turned into natural eyes.
Maria Woodworth-Etter, a worldwide hearling revivalist from 1885 to 1924, has many testimonies of shifting the atmosphere of entire cities when she arrived. People miles away from her meeting were supernaturally healed and would come to testify of the message she preached the day before, but they had an open vision of it while plowing in a field.
Imagine the same way that people line the streets for a 4th of July parade, they will line the streets waiting for men and women of God to pass by because they know they will be healed.
Believers were increasingly added to the Lord, crowds of both men and women, so that they even brought the sick out into the streets and placed them on beds and mats, that at least the shadow of Peter passing by might touch some of them.(Acts 5:14-15)
Let’s be a people who set our focus on Jesus, our passion on God’s presence and experience His miraculous power!
