This is a brief record of an experience with God that I had early
Wednesday morning, August 18, 1999.
It was Tuesday night and I was concerned about the finances for
the ministry and some other things that left me frustrated. In that
frustration, I cried out to God, "Do any of your promises or laws
work?" I went to bed that night thinking, I am going to figure out a
way to generate the finances to finish the new administration building
that we have started and I might as well seek to find a wife without God's
help, because I have somehow put myself in a position where I have
missed the blessings of God. (Not praying enough, or maybe I haven't
been going to church enough - either it's something about me or His
promises don't work for all.)
While in bed asleep, I was suddenly awakened and told to get a sheet
of paper and a pen; I am going to tell you something. I knew it was
God. I could sense His presence in the small trailer, otherwise I don't
think I would have gotten up, for it was three o'clock in the morning.
The following is what I wrote from the inspiration of God.
God does not bless or give to us according to what we deserve or
what we may think is good, but by spiritual laws that He set into
existence. Many of these laws we became partakers in by just being
born again. (No effort on our part, it was paid for at Calvary.) There are
other spiritual laws that it doesn't matter if a person is a born again
Christian or not, they will work. One that came to my mind was, "Give,
and it shall be given unto you..." (Luke 6:38) Another was Mark 11:23,
"That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be
thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe
that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have
whatsoever he saith."
These laws are powerful, so powerful and active that they will keep a
born again Christian from receiving anthing that God wants us to have.
They will work in the positive as well as in the negative. For instance,
go back to Mark 11:23; if we say the wrong or negative thing and
believe it in our hearts, it will come to pass.
God also showed me Peter and reminded me of how He had denied
