"Was I Translated?"


I share this account reluctantly, primarily because I anticipate it will draw criticism. The level of faith in which many walk simply makes believing this prohibitive. But it is nonetheless a true and correct account of what was told to me by a reliable source. 

Back in the second half of the 1970’s, not sure of the exact year, someone called me to go to North Miami General Hospital to pray for a patient there. She had already been there for several few days. The lady was in serious condition.

One of her daughters, a registered nurse, flew in from the northeast to attend to her. I spoke with the patient privately-briefly, and then we prayed. I commanded satan to turn her loose, and asked the Lord to heal her and bring her home quickly. There was no dramatic experience, "no fireworks", no supernatural manifestations. Just a quiet simple prayer.

Either the next day, or the day after she was released, came home, and went on with her life. To the best of my knowledge, she never had any reccurence of that problem in nearly forty years. 

A year or so after, she told another lady about an unusual experience that transpired that same night we prayed. She said in the middle of the night, I came into her room and either told her she was healed and would be released or something like that. 

Let me be clear, I was not (and still am not) aware by any physical faculty of going into her room while I would have been sleeping at that time. But that does disqualify this woman's claim. When Philip was translated, no details are mentioned, nor are details mentioned about Enoch's translation. Moses knew not that his face shone. Many times God spoke from heaven and some heard it, while others said it thundered. When Jesus spoke to Paul on the Damascus Road, not everyone saw or heard what transpired. The fact is, we don't know everything about the manifestations of God. I'm confident that most who would not find this account to be plausible would also find an Angel speaking through a donkey impossible to believe. Yet scripture states emphatically that it did on fact happen with Baalam.

For years, I didn’t think much about this. It was something we read about in the Bible, e.g., Acts 8:39. Had I been more forward thinking, I would have documented the event with signed affidavits. But that always seemed too much like self-promotion. Nothing will drive away God’s presence quicker than pride and arrogance. The scriptures are clear that he who humbles himself will be exalted and, he who exalts himself shall be abased. I don't like being abased, so I'll humble myself.

Again, what kind of fool would make such an outlandish claim if it could be easily disproven? The patient who got healed is still alive at the time of this writing. While I will not release names, she free to come forth if she chooses to bear witness. But no one can prove this wrong! No one could pass a polygraph affirmatively disputing that this woman stated the aforementioned. The patient's medical record would confirm she was released abnormally early considering her condition when admitted. History would show whether she has ever experienced any recurrence. 

The purpose for sharing this is not to boast or to celebritize me, but to testify of Him! Further, it is to show yet another reason why I am willing to follow Him into the lion's den; because I know He has not changed! As it is written "...Jesus Christ the same yesterday, today, and forever...." The extraordinary miraculous works He did in AD 30, He will do in AD 2015. The "Cessation" theory is just that, a theory. Though many good men embrace it (some who I love and respect), it is scripturally infirm and therefore error, and an untenable doctrinal posture. He has proven to me by supernatural manifestations that I can trust Him to keep His word; that His word never fails; and that He watches over His word to perform it!


Why I did not Share the Supernatural Signs, Photos, and Experiences

Thirty-two years ago


Sometimes people ask me, “why didn't you share these photos, and tell the people about these supernatural signs and experiences when you first came here?The obvious inference is that it would have enhanced my ministry here. That is probably correct. Had I exploited the sacred gifts, experiences, and signs God has given me, I probably could have avoided those 32-years of poverty, shame, and humiliation. But at what cost?

He did not give them to me to be merchandised. I should not be forced to choose between exploiting holy gifts, and poverty. No one should have to defile sacred things to get the church to do the right thing! What's the difference in that and prostitution?

God did not tell me I was allowed to make these things public, until recently. For me, it is better to be in obedience and endure the abject poverty, than to deliberately go out of His will in order to prosper. I can honestly say, there were times I thought of giving up; but never once was I tempted to exploit the signs, experiences, and photographs. Perhaps the following two part explanation will help.


First of all, the signs were for me, not for them. The “Burning Bush” was for Moses, not for Israel. Moses' “Hand” becoming leprous then being healed, Moses' “Rod” becoming a snake and again becoming a rod, and pouring water on the ground and it turning into "Blood", each were initially for Moses, not for Israel. Moses revealed these things to Israel much later, during the "Wilderness Experience". But they were initially given to Moses to help him believe enough to accept his commission from God; and to withstand when satan would test his faith to the extreme. Until recently, I was not given permission to share these experiences publicly.


Secondly, before I came here, the Lord gave me instructions on how I would know who has His Holy Spirit in them. He had placed His Spirit in me and confirmed that with supernatural signs. He did that for me, to confirm these things to me and in me. It was not for them, at that time.

He assured me that if they have His Holy Spirit in them, that Spirit will recognize who I am by the Spirit He placed in me. His Spirit will not repel His Spirit.

Those who know how the spirit operates understand what I'm saying here. This was demonstrated in Brother Branham's ministry, every time he ministered in the Spirit.

The Lord showed me if they repel me, never accept me, reject me, shun me, never allow me to get close, push me away, or any of those kinds of conduct, then His Holy Spirit is not in them; regardless of what they may claim, feel, or do.

That's another spirit in them that hates the Spirit He placed in me.

So that is how I'll know who they are, by how they respond to me; not by how they respond to seeing Him manifest supernatural signs through me. There's always a multitude ready to follow after the fishes and loaves. As throughout scripture, the signs were to be shown to the elect, in the wilderness.


Now I can just hear some critic arise, citing for example Paul's bitter dissension with Barnabas over Mark. I would say to Mr. or Mrs. Critic, remember in your current role that's all you are, is a critic. Contrary to what you may believe, the Holy Spirit did not prompt you with your criticism. He knows the truth. He's the One who revealed this to me. He's the One who confirmed it countless times with signs. Had “...the Spirit of Truth come....” to prompt you, that would have been to “...guide you into all truth....” My recommendation is to first get deliverance from all evils spirits, then seek the infilling of the Holy Spirit, and then ask “...the Comforter....”, and “...He will teach you all things....”


A few months after we moved here, the Lord gave me Ezekiel 33:30-33 as a pattern of what was to come. All these years later, He has vindicated me unquestionably as His servant, and as one of His prophets, just as promised. Over these three-plus decades, those verses He gave me in Ezekiel have unfolded like a blossom opens in spring. And just as that passage states, they “heard my words”, but would not do them; they made a “show of love”, but chased after covetousness; and I was to them as a “...song of one that hath a pleasant voice, and can play well on an instrument....” And just as He promised me, “...when this cometh to pass, (lo it will come,) then shall they know that a prophet hath been among them....” As they always have, those things I have prophesied over this place, and these people, will come to pass. Woe unto them who have not repented in that day!


The purpose for sharing these supernatural signs and experiences is not to boast, but to testify of Him! These signs and experiences are not to celebritize me, but to magnify Him! He gave them, and continues to give them, to vindicate me as His servant. Further, it is to show yet another reason why I am willing to repeatedly follow Him into the lion's den; and why I've been willing to endure the decades of extreme adversity, abject poverty, insults, humiliation, and public shame. I love Him!

Sixty years ago, He revealed Himself to me by His power and marked me as "His Property" with "His Stigmata". Forty years ago, He revealed Himself to me by snatching me away ("Caught Away") and engulfing me into His glorious Shekinah Presence, and similar to the Mount of Transfiguration account. Twenty years ago, He gave me a conditional promise of my full ministry and confirmed it by the "Hands of Fire" sign, which remains to this day. He has made me know experientially that ALL power and authority is in Him; and that nothing and no one can stand in His presence; no demon, no principality, no angel, no disease, no military force, nor satan, and not even death can stand against Him! Everyone and everything is subject to Him! He’s been with me, even in me all my life! He has always delivered me! I am His property! He defends me extravagantly! Woe unto me if I preach not the gospel....
