Working on my "Revelation picture"
Camping with family.
Along with working on my "Revelation picture" I was building a couple of pine shelves,
for my sister, while fighting a 'full out' battle with the Devil...
(the Devil) was flashing image after, perverted, image into my mind and
filling my head with all kinds of ideas, it was, almost, unbearable.
In an act of reaching out to God for help (and in an act of defying the
Devil, at the same time) I uncovered a book of (KJV) Bible verses entitled,
"God's Answers For Your Life" that I had "hidden away"
eight months earlier (while defying God).
took the book and entered my Study. I sat in my chair and tilted the
chair back and with the book closed, in my hands, I raised my hands toward
Heaven (to God) and said, "Guide me Lord, right from the start.
Speak to me again."
brought the book down and "randomly" opened the book to pages
118 & 119; which contained these verses:
Corinthians 4:8 - 10
are troubled on every side, yet not distressed;
are perplexed, but not in despair;
but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed;
bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus,
the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body.
I Peter 5: 10 & 11
the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ
that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen,
him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.
Peter 2: 20 & 21
what glory is it, if, when ye be buffeted for your faults,
shall take it patiently? but if, when ye do well, and suffer for it,
take it patiently, this is acceptable with God.
even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us,
us an example, that ye should follow his steps:
8:17 & 18
if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ;
so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.
I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy
be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.
therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ.
2:9 & 10
we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the
suffering of death,
with glory and honour; that he by the grace of God should taste death for
it became him, for whom are all things, and by whom are all things,
bringing many sons unto glory, to make the captain of their salvation
perfect through sufferings.
is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried,
shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that
God filled (flooded would probably be more correct) me with His Holy Spirit.
this time... I spoke the words that came into my head.
the Devil, immediately, showed up and said, "Now just because you're
feeling like that and crying and saying those words don't mean that its
the Holy Spirit.", to which I, immediately, replied, "Shut up,
Devil, go back to hell..." And he did... with his proverbial
tail between his proverbial legs... And he never came back until the
for twelve days (August 12th
to August 23rd)
God's Holy Spirit was with me from 4 to 10 hours a day and I spent that
whole time weeping, and weeping, and weeping, and praising God in the
language on men and of angels.
this day, I have not studied much about Bible prophesy. I'm sure
that I'll be led back to it, sometime in the future but, now it has been,
mainly, the Holy Spirit leading me through the Bible for spiritual growth
and who am I to argue... I certainly need it... I have always
dreamed about studying under some great university professor and now, the
Holy Spirit, my teacher be... What more could I, really, possibly, ask for?
The longest time 'infilled' with the Holy Spirit...
spent, around, two hours, in the Spirit, sometime, before supper.
ate supper, cleaned up, and put another eight-hour VHS "audio
tape" (which contained spiritual music) in my player, at 7:30 pm, and
I sat down in my chair and started praising God; He, immediately, filled
me with His Holy Spirit, again.
came (somewhat) to my "earthly" senses, for a moment and noticed
the display on the VHS player read, exactly, 4:00 (meaning that four hours
had gone by and that there were four hours left; to this tape).
felt God's presence so much that I felt the need to knell down, I did, and
the next thing I knew, the tape was over, it was now 3:30 am and I was, laid
out, on the floor.
felt as if every cell in my body was vibrating, my sinuses were blocked
solid (which meant I had to breath through my mouth) and with every breath
that I breathed down it was as if the very air was vibrating and it
stimulated my mouth, my windpipe and my lungs (my whole body).
did not, nor, do not, deserve experiences like this. Yes, I did
overcome the Devil, but that was ONLY with God's help, and what, must have
been, 'oodles' of prayers (by other Christians). In the past I
have been THE WORST SINNER and, up until 07/07/07, THE WORST
HYPOCRITE. So, if God would do all of this for me... He will do it
for anyone... anyone, that is, who seeks Him.
After eight days of being 'flooded' with the Holy Spirit I felt God
telling me to go up in my bedroom, lay on my bed and praise Him up there.
had enough wire on one of my speakers to reach so I took the speaker up to
will not go into the details, on this one but, the Devil, then, tried
something to discourage me... It did not work.
went back, downstairs (in my bare feet) and put in an eight-hour audio
tape and hit play.
I was thinking about fasting again but, I was a little
hungry and I opened the refrigerator door and, immediately, the cold air
sank down around my bare feet. I said, "Lord, is that sign,
that I should fast? and then I said, "Ah, with what you've done for
me, already, I will anyway." and I shut the refrigerator door and went back up stairs.
I laid down on the bed I decided to knell down, by the bed, and pray, and
read some more of this little book of Bible verses.
was getting dark and, instead of turning on the big light, I took a small
LED flashlight (which had a nylon strap) and, with a thumbtack, stuck the
flashlight into the ceiling directly above the book (that was now laid on
the bed), turned it on and got down to read and pray.
of the things I prayed was, "Lord, don't ever let
me forget these days with you." For I knew that this experience (being filled with the Holy
Spirit, 4 to 10 hours a day) could not continue for very much longer.
I wanted it to, though; mentally and, especially, spiritually I was
feeling ALIVE and I had a sense of ultimate peace but physically... I was exhausted...
later I really felt God telling me to get up on the bed... so I got up
and laid in the middle of the bed where I noticed that the light was
shining down in the center of my chest. That was okay, and I left it
there as I raised my hands and 'sang' along with the music and praised
a very short while I heard a voice telling me to, "Move down under
the light" that is all the voice said but, I, somehow, knew
what it meant... 'Move down until my eyes were directly under the light.'
I had a little trouble
request, "why would God tell me to move
down under an LED flashlight?" And besides, they are intense
and hurt your eyes if you look directly into them. So I just
continued to praise God where I was at...
was still feeling, however, that I should move down under this
light. But then the Devil was there disguising his voice as my
'internal logical' voice again and I did not.
a short time later, I heard the voice again (this time stronger and repeatedly),
"MOVE DOWN UNDER THE LIGHT, MOVE DOWN UNDER THE LIGHT, MOVE DOWN
UNDER THE LIGHT" so I did...
was hurting my eyes but I stared at that light; trying to figure out why
God was telling me to look at this light???
I'll tell ya, the Devil (now, I know it was, I only suspected back then)
tried so hard to get me from staying there under that light... He
tried everything, even, disguising his voice as God's voice, telling me
that, "looking at that light is something that the Devil would
have you do, trying to hypnotize you, or something"
by now, I was catching on and I put my hands back up, in the air, and
said, again, "Nope, I'm going to trust you... Lord, I'm going to
trust you Jesus" and BAM, God filled with the Holy Spirit, again.
then forgot about the light and was weeping and praising God (in the
Spirit) with my eyes closed.
must have been about two, or three, minutes later when I heard 'the
voice', God's voice, say, "Open your eyes, now..." I opened
my (now, tear filled) eyes and because of these tears, that
little light, now, seamed ten times brighter than before and I went to
look away and close my eyes, at the same time. Before I could do
either, out of my speaker came... "MY JESUS SHINES BRIGHTER"
saw all of the little variables leading up to this point... I saw
how, if I had not followed the Holy Spirit I would not have experienced
this blessing from God. I saw the "Devil's work" to
prevent this "illumination" and I saw God's, INFINITE, wisdom, power and
presence and I continued to be filled with His Holy Spirit for several hours...
is God's Holy Spirit that leads you to God, it is God's Holy Spirit that
draws you closer to Him and it is, also, (in this flesh existence) how God reveals Himself to
you... If you do not have the Holy Spirit living within you - you cannot, truly, and
FULLY know God.
I do not know, exactly, how long I was, 'in the Spirit' this day
(somewhere around five hours) but after this day it started to drop off...
during this day, I took that little book of Bible verses again and done
the same thing, as on the 12th.
Sitting in my chair, book in my hands, hands and book raised toward Heaven
I, again, ask God to speak to me.
Here's what He said...
that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High

will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress:
God; in him will I trust.
he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler,
from the noisome pestilence.

truth shall be thy shield and buckler.
shalt not be afraid for the terror by night;
for the arrow that flieth by day;
for the pestilence that walketh in darkness;
for the destruction that wasteth at noonday.
thousand shall fall at thy side,
ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.
with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked.
thou hast made the LORD, which is my refuge,

shall call upon me, and I will answer him:
will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him.
long life will I satisfy him, and shew (show) him my salvation.
27:1 & 5
LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear?
LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion:
the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a

shall they fear the name of the LORD from the west,
his glory from the rising of the sun.
the enemy shall come in like a flood,

5:11 & 12
let all those that put their trust in thee rejoice:
them ever shout for joy, because thou defendest them:
them also that love thy name be joyful in thee.
thou, LORD, wilt bless the righteous;
favour wilt thou compass him as with a shield.
passages done more for me than anything else could have; to my God...
Jesus be the glory.
to this day (the 28th)
I had not gone outside, at all... and it had been the most beautiful
weather you could have ever wanted (sunny and hot every day) just the way I like
it. But God told me to stay inside, so I did...
this day, however, I felt as if, God was telling me it was okay to go out
and get some sun. So I took my 'little book of Bible verses' and my mountain
bike and went to a secluded beach area to read this book, praise God and enjoy
the wondrous beauty of His nature.
there, on the beach, I noticed a path, through the trees, and decided to
check it out. I walked, about ten feet, into the trees when all of a
sudden chickadees (one of my favorite song birds) started to swarm in
around me. There must have been, at least, 30 to 50 little
chickadees that landed in the branches around me; many of them from, only,
1 to 3
feet away from my face. They were all chirping like crazy, not like
they usually sing (chick-a-dee-dee-dee-dee) but a different song (I can't
remember that one, exactly ;).
just stood there for a while with my mouth opened and with tears filling
my eyes, to afraid to speak (as to scare them away) but after a very short
while I started to say, "Praise you Jesus, praise you Jesus" and
it did not even affect them, they just kept coming in and chirping...
Praise you Jesus...
about 10 or 15 minutes they started to move on; and so did I, in total
amazement of God's power, sovereignty, beauty and loving kindness...
Praise you Jesus.
tell ya... a lot of people are missing out on God; even some of the
"Christians" do not know God. He is there for anyone, and
everyone, who calls upon Him, and who seeks Him.
are more Scripture that the Holy Spirit led me to between August 12th
and the 31st.
2:17 - 21
it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God,
will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your
daughters shall prophesy,
your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams:
on my servants and on my handmaidens
will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy:
I will shew wonders in heaven above,
signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke:
sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood,
the great and notable day of the Lord come:
it shall come to pass,
whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.
40:1 - 3
waited patiently for the LORD; and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry.
brought me up also out of an horrible pit,
of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings.
he hath put a new song in my mouth,
praise unto our God: many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the
shall they fear the name of the LORD from the west,
his glory from the rising of the sun.
the enemy shall come in like a flood,
Spirit of the LORD shall lift up a standard against him.
Timothy 1:7 -9
God hath not given us the spirit of fear;
of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
not thou therefore ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me his
be thou partaker of the afflictions of the gospel according to the power

according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace,

15: 14 - 16
are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you.
I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth:
I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I
have made known unto you.
have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you,
ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain:
whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.
5:22 - 25
the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness,
temperance: against such there is no law.
they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and
we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.
Corinthians 2:9 - 14
as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered
into the heart of man,
things which God hath prepared for them that love him.
God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit:
the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.
what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in
so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God.
we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of

things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth,
which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.
the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God:
they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are
14: 14 - 18, 26

I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter,

1:19 & 20
ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land:
if ye refuse and rebel, ye shall be devoured with the sword:
the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it.
Samuel said, Hath the LORD as great delight in burnt offerings and
in obeying the voice of the LORD?
to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams.
ye forsake the LORD, and serve strange gods, then he will turn and do you
consume you, after that he hath done you good.
rend your heart, and not your garments, and turn unto the LORD your God:
he is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and
repenteth him of the evil.

make me to know wisdom.

knowledge of God,
bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ
that is faithful in that which is least is faithful also in much:
he that is unjust in the least is unjust also in much.
be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.

it shall be said in that day, Lo, this is our God; we have waited for him,
he will save us: this is the LORD; we have waited for him, we will be glad
and rejoice in his salvation.
24:4 - 14
Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.
many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.
ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars:
that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the
end is not yet.
nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom:
there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers
these are the beginning of sorrows.
shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you:
ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake.
then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate
many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.
because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.
he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.
this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world
a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.
Timothy 3:1 - 5
know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud,
disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers,
fierce, despisers of those that are good,
heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;
a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
Timothy 4:1 - 3
the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart
from the faith,
heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;
lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;
to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats,
God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe
and know the truth.
Timothy 4:3 & 4
the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine;
after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having

the LORD shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee.

the ends of the world shall remember and turn unto the LORD:
all the kindreds of the nations shall worship before thee.
the kingdom is the LORD's: and he is the governor among the nations.
patient therefore, brethren, unto the coming of the Lord.

16:8 - 15
when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness,
and of judgment:
sin, because they believe not on me;
righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see me no more;
judgment, because the prince of this world is judged.

things that the Father hath are mine:
