A CALL FROM CHRIST TO JOIN THE ARMIES OF HEAVEN
On 10/24/82, while curled in a fetal position on the shower floor, the Holy Spirit entered me, and I experienced a second birth as John the Apostle. See John 3:5. After my spiritual birth , I knew that I must relinquish total control of my life to God and since that day, I start each morning with a devotional time that includes meditation, Bible study, and prayer.
During my devotions on 11/16/82, the Holy Spirit led me outside, where I saw the fiery cloud that Moses and the Israelites saw in the desert. See Exodus 13:21. Inside the cloud, a swarming mixture of orange, red, and yellow fire illuminated the predawn sky. Then from the fiery cloud, God said these Words loud and clear: “Make it simple. Get it right.” During the next few months, the Holy Spirit interpreted these Words to mean; simplify life, seek righteousness, accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, and put God first.
During my devotions on 12/10/82, I confessed my belief in Jesus Christ and accepted Him as my Savior and Lord.
During my devotions on 1/7/83, the Holy Spirit led me outside, where I saw reflected colors of purple and orange illuminated off thin gray clouds. I hadn’t fully recovered from hearing God’s roaring voice speak from the fiery cloud and feared what the Holy Spirit might show me next. We walked down my front steps to the middle of the front yard, turned north, and saw a formation of dark clouds come rolling through the sky. Then, suddenly, from between two of the cylinders, a glorious yellow light appeared and descended toward me. This beautiful glowing radiance looked like four huge diamonds, each with four sides and connected at their right and left corners. As the Dazzling Light flew toward me, I dropped facedown onto the ground in absolute terror. Just before the light overwhelmed me, I looked up to see the dazzling yellow diamonds transform into an iridescent white Moravian star and fly into a dogwood tree. Filled with fear and a high fever, I went back inside to finish my devotions and asked God, “What did I see?” The Holy Spirit then instructed me to hold the spine of my Good News Bible, to watch for the parting of the pages, to open the Bible to the parted page, and receive the answer to my question. I opened my Bible to where the pages parted to page 380 in the Old Testament and read: “As the priests were leaving the temple, it was suddenly filled with a cloud shinning with the dazzling light of the Lord’s presence.” 1 Kings 8:10-11a. See also Ezekiel 43:1-4. (Below is a painting of this scene with the dark clouds and the dazzling light)
In my first dream of Jesus’ Second Coming on 10/19/83, Jesus stood on a solid gray cloud and descended through a cloudless blue sky as the sun shone off His white clothes. The dazzling reflection of the sun’s yellow light off His white clothes filled me with the same fear as when I saw the Dazzling Light. And I awoke in a cold sweat.
In my second dream of Jesus’ Second Coming on 6/21/84, I waited in the front yard and looked into a cloudless blue sky to see Jesus, dazzling white, riding on a gray cloud. Again, I was afraid and knelt trembling on the ground beside the dogwood tree. As I gazed into His face, which glowed with the dazzling lights of heaven, Jesus walked to my side, placed His right hand on my shoulder, and said, “Do not be afraid! I have work for you to do.” See Revelation 1:17-19.
In my third dream of Jesus’ Second Coming on 10/19/84, I stood waiting by a green Hyundai at the earth and stone stage in the northeast corner of the Sea of Galilee. A large crowd of church leaders gazed into a cloudless blue sky and watched Jesus ride toward us on a white cloud. Jesus landed and talked to the church leaders. Then, He walked to where I waited by the green Hyundai. He took a seat in the back and when I looked at Him in the rearview mirror, Jesus said, “I am ready.” We pulled onto Highway 92 and I woke up.
During my devotions on 4/6/85, the Holy Spirit gave me specific instructions to drive to Frank Liske Park and pick up Jesus on 4/12/85. After I arrived on the 12th, Jesus’ Spirit entered the backseat. I looked in the rearview mirror, and the voice of Jesus said, “I am ready.” As I drove out of the park, Jesus’ Spirit overwhelmed me and my body shook with nervous excitement. I drove us to my home in silence and when we pulled into the driveway and drove past the dogwood tree, Jesus’ Spirit exited the backseat and indwelled me. My body felt light as a feather. My mind was free of the burdens of my life. And for the first and only time, I felt that with Jesus indwelling me that I was without sin. My spirit felt fully alive and in total harmony with God. I felt perfect. At church that Sunday 4/14/85, Jesus consumed my whole being with His eternal love for His Father and His deep concern for His Church. This spiritual experience reached its crescendo, when we stood in worship to sing Eternal God, Whose Power Upholds. As Jesus told me during devotions, when I opened my mouth to sing, Jesus’ voice proclaimed the words of this hymn. After the worship service that fateful Sunday, my church’s minister, who stood at the pulpit a few feet away from where Jesus sang in the second pew, said, “I heard Jesus sing through you today!”
On 1/16/05, I traveled to Galilee to find the site of Jesus’ Second Coming that I saw in my third dream and to answer Christ’s Call to reissue His Seven Messages to the Seven Churches. On my first day, I needed to find Jesus’ return site, the earth and stone stage that I saw in my dream. Led by the Holy Spirit, I drove north along the shore of the Sea of Galilee searching for the spotlights. On a Father’s Day visit to Frank Likse Park in 2003, the Holy Spirit told me that I would see outside spotlights beside the earth and stone stage in Galilee. After turning right onto Highway 92, I knew the return site was close. It was the stones. Large, dark stones lined the northeast corner of the Sea of Galilee. As I drove past these stones, Jesus’ Spirit entered me. Just as I had before, I shook with nervous excitement. I pulled off the road at the next overlook to adjust to Jesus’ presence. After a few minutes of walking outside the green Hyundai that I had rented at the Tel Aviv Airport and reminding myself that I had experienced this spiritual indwelling before, I continued down Highway 92 in search of the return site seen in my third dream of Jesus’ Second Coming. In the distance, I saw the spotlights. And at 9 o’clock, I turned left at the road side sign marked Daliyyot and parked the green Hyundai beside the earth and stone stage to begin my wait for Jesus’ return. Overcome by Jesus’ Spirit within me and the emotion of my dream coming true, I fell to my knees and prayed out loud, “Come, Lord Jesus. Come!” I prayed out loud continuously for 19 minutes and at 9:19 am closed my prayers with the words, “Come, Lord Jesus Come! The Spirit and the bride say come, Lord Jesus. Come!” See Revelation 22:17, 20. (Below is the picture I took of the earth and stone stage beside the Sea of Galilee)
On 1/25/05, I made my last trip to the earth and stone stage. A spectacular full moon illuminated the northern sky over the hills of Golan. I opened the windows, turned on the interior lights, and began reading in Revelation. “Then I saw heaven open, and there was a white horse. Its rider is called Faithful and True; it is with justice that he judges and fights his battles. His eyes were like a flame of fire, and he wore many crowns on his head. He had a name written on him, but no one except himself knows what it is. The robe he wore was covered in blood. His name is The Word of God. The armies of heaven followed him, riding on white horses and dressed in clean white linen. Out of his mouth came a sharp sword, with which he will defeat the nations. He will rule over them with a rod of iron and he will trample out the wine in the winepress of the furious anger of the Almighty God. On his robe and on his thigh is written the name: King of kings and Lord of lords.” Revelation 19:11-16. The car’s interior became the site of a furious windstorm and at 6:21 pm, the alarm sounded on my wrist watch for 19 seconds. I had not set the alarm, so I considered it as Jesus’ farewell to me in Galilee. In that instant, I realized that every moment in my life had prepared me for this moment and that every moment for the rest of my life would be lived to make this message from the King of kings known to the world. At that time, Jesus’ Spirit left me and returned to heaven. I then prayed, “Christ in me. Christ in the world. Amen.”
During a Bible Study Class of John 21:22 at Hollands Church on 11/16/16, Jesus answered my prayer by confirming my identity as John the Apostle and my call to prepare the Way for His Second Coming on 9/19/22.
On 8/19/17, God revealed to me in a dream at my mother’s house on Lake Norman that Jesus was born on 9/19/03 BC.
On 1/28/18, Jesus woke me at 2:19 am and instructed me to write down Seven Messages and send them to the Churches in America.
As a physical sign of Christ in me, I have a stigmata represented by scars on both wrist. And on Father’s Day 6/17/18, I bleed from both wrists as a physical sign of Christ in the world.
During my devotional study of Psalm 25:22 at Hope Valley on 8/21/18, the Lord instructed to stand on the earth and stone stage beside the Sea of Galilee and await Jesus’ Return at 3:51 pm on 9/19/22.
On Thursday 1/20/05, I made my first trip to the Chapel on the Mount of Beatitudes tourist site in Galilee (pictured above). As I entered the church, the sanctuary’s striking interior design and immaculate cleanliness brought me to a state of reverence and respect. I knelt at a prayer station, bowed my head, and then noticed a paper bag on the floor near my knees. I picked up the bag and saw written:
Open Doors – Ezekiel 7:12 – Isa. 29
Then during Holy Week in 2019, Jesus instructed me to send these Words of warning to Christian Churches:
“The time is coming. The day is near when the business of Christianity will come to an end. And God’s punishment will fall upon all Christians.” Ezekiel 7:12
“Christ’s Holy City in Rome is doomed! There will be weeping and wailing, and the whole city will be like an altar covered in blood.” Isaiah 29:1
“You claim to worship me, but your words are meaningless and your hearts are in your bank accounts.” Isaiah 29:13
“When I return, the light will shine into your darkness and The Word of God will once again bring happiness to poor and humble people.” Isaiah 29:18-19.
