A Visitation Of The Holy Spirit

The Church's first service was held on Sunday, November 19, 1995. It was
a time of great and thankful praises and glory to our dear Lord. The
Presence of the wonderful Holy Spirit was so real. I was still marveling at the goodness of our great God, and thinking how blessed I
am to have come to know our Lord Jesus. I was in a state of extreme
thankfulness. Monday went by, and all day I sensed His amazing grace
over me. I felt my Father's love in a very special way.
When you know that you have been pulled from the pit, you cannot help
but be grateful!
When it was time to go to sleep, I seemed to be most bright-eyed! I
tried playing a cassette by Pastor Bob Phillips, but the tape recorder
seemed to gurgle. As I was lying on my bed, I noticed the clock's
large, red digital numbers glowing in the dark; it read, “1:03 AM”. What
happened next was one of the most extraordinary experiences I have ever
I was suddenly put into a very deep sleep, in a trance-like state. This
is what I saw and experienced. I saw myself sitting on the couch in our
living room. The couch was facing the door to the balcony. Coming from
the direction of the balcony was the most awesome Person. The Person of
God the Holy Spirit! Walking behind the Spirit of the Living God was an
angel, not more than four feet tall. God the Holy Spirit came directly
towards me. As He slowly walked to me, His head held high, His shoulders
thrust out, all Majesty, Authority and Power, the thought was imparted
to my spirit, “This is God the Holy Ghost!” Because the Lord Jesus has
appeared to me over twenty-one times, one of the first things I remember
thinking was that the Holy Spirit looks so much like the Lord Jesus. He
looks like His Twin! But, I seemed to also notice the difference between
Them. In the visions granted to me of our Lord Jesus, His hair is down
close to His shoulders. The Holy Spirit's hair was not down, but
sticking out with power. Thinking about His hair afterwards, it reminded
me of someone sticking his finger in a live electrical outlet.
This Mighty Holy Spirit, this very beautiful Third Person of the
Godhead, strode toward me and I stood up. The Spirit of God stood about
fifteen inches in front of me. I looked into the very penetrating, deep,
serious, serene and very holy eyes of God the Holy Ghost, and I felt I
was looking into Eternity! At that moment, I found myself looking down
on the carpet where I was standing. I trembled in the Presence of this
Holy One with an awesome reverence. As this Holy Wonder of the Lord
stood before me, I put out both my hands before Him, palms facing
upwards, and I spoke these words, “Would You please pray that Jesus
would always keep me?” When I spoke these words, God's Holy Spirit
placed both His Palms on my palms. I felt the sensation of electricity
surging through my entire body.
Next, with His eyes still staring into my very soul, the Spirit of God
began to rub my palms with His Palms, one at a time. He slowly rubbed
one palm after the other, in a striding type of way. By this time, my
eyes were staring at both His Hands. I believe the Lord Holy Spirit
rubbed my palms about eight times. As He did so, I was amazed to see Oil
gushing out of the middle of His Palms over mine! The Oil which flowed
freely from the Holy Spirit's Palms was bearably hot, and as it
overflowed my palms, it went to the back of my hands. As I stood there
before the Lord, I found myself rubbing my hands with the Oil still
overflowing and dripping on the carpet. I found myself saying these
words, “These hands shall be laid on the sick and they shall recover.”
With that, God the Holy Spirit and the angel both turned and walked back
the way they came.
My eyes opened. The first thing I noticed was the time on the clock. It
read, “1:17 AM”. I believe God arranged it so that I would see the time
before and after this holy experience. For fourteen unforgettable
minutes, I was in the Presence of God the Holy Spirit. I could hardly
lift my elbow to nudge my sleeping husband. After many attempts, I
stuttered, “I, I, I looked into the eyes of the Holy Ghost and I saw
Eternity!” I was so shaken up, I could hardly speak.
A couple of days later, when I tried to play the cassette which had
previously gurgled, it played fine. The message was timely. Pastor Bob
Phillips spoke about the Holy Spirit, and the last line in his message
was that, “he that believes, out of his belly shall flow RIVERS OF
People have asked me how I know that I saw God the Holy Spirit. Some say
that the Holy Spirit cannot be seen because He is a Spirit.
My answer is that whether we believe in Heaven or Hell, they still
exist. Furthermore, in my first vision of our Lord Jesus as a twelve
year old Hindu child, the thought was imparted to my heart, “This is
Jesus,” even though I did not know Him.
Recently, I was privileged for the second time to meet with Dr. Gwen
Shaw, President of End-Time Handmaidens and Servants Ministry (www.eth-s.org).
This beautiful, anointed and respected Bible Teacher and
End-Time General in the Lord's Army shared some real insight into my experience
as she related it to a group having lunch with her and her dear husband,
Papa Jim (who has since gone Home to be with the Lord).
As Sister Gwen so rightly pointed out, “The Lord is quite able to
remove the veil of the natural eyes, and allow whomsoever He chooses to
look into the things of the supernatural. He is Sovereign! In Heaven,
the saints are all in spirit forms. Yet, they are seen and recognized by
So, dear ones, if you have a difficult time believing my
experience with the Holy Spirit, it still happened. I am simply sharing
my experience as it was given to me by my wonderful Lord!
I asked the Lord to give me Scripture to back up my experience. He gave
me Romans 8:26-27 -- “Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities:
for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit
Himself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be
uttered. And He that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of
the Spirit, because He maketh intercession for the saints according to
the will of God.”
The Journey continues . . .
Many things continue to happen since that wonderful visitation by the
Holy Ghost. People have been healed and continue to be healed, to the
glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.
On a daily basis, I experience the Golden Oil of the Holy Spirit running
down my head. I actually feel the physical sensation of this happening.
Psalm 23:5 -- “Thou anointest my head with Oil; my cup runneth over.” See also Psalm 89:20.
During my fellowship and prayer time with the Lord, the Shadow of
Almighty God falls over me. I know when He comes and I see when His
Shadow falls, whether my eyes are open or closed, whether it is daytime
or nighttime. Psalm 91:1 -- ”He that dwelleth in the secret place of the
Most High shall abide under the Shadow of the Almighty.”
Many times, a spiritual Mantle is thrown over my shoulders. It is like
someone standing behind me and throwing a cloak over my shoulders. I
know Who that Someone is! Praise the Lord.
In the early hours of the morning, I am awakened by the Holy Wind of the
Spirit of the Living God. The Wind of the Holy Spirit is blown into my
ear, usually my left ear. Isaiah 50:4 -- ”He wakeneth (me) morning by
morning, He wakeneth mine ear to hear as the learned.”
Sometimes I experience the Rain and the Dew of the Holy Spirit falling
over me. At times it is cold and at times I could only describe it as
Liquid Fire. When the Dew falls over me, it is like a light sprinkle
compared to the Rain. Isaiah 44:3 -- ”For I will pour Water upon him
that is thirsty, and Floods upon the dry ground: I will pour My Spirit
upon thy seed, and My blessing upon thine offspring.”
Every one of my finger tips have become raised. Our Church family calls
them “fire blisters”. They are most pronounced when I speak about our
Lord Jesus Christ and the Anointing of the Holy Spirit. These fire
blisters, which are on all my fingers, are visible to the eyes. I asked
the Lord what this means. He laid upon my heart that He had left His
mark on my hands. To our lovely Lord Jesus Christ be all the glory,
honour, praise and credit. I lift HIM up.
When God anoints a vessel, it is for service. I thank the Lord for this
great privilege He has given each one of us to serve Him.
A couple of years ago, our family doctor scheduled me for an
electrocardiogram as part of an annual check-up. As I lay down on the
bed, the nurse cautioned me not to touch the wall. While I was lying on
the bed, the anointing of the Lord came upon me. I could physically feel
the Oil of the Holy Spirit leaking down my head. As the nurse was watching
the needle on the graph, it took an unusual jump up and down. “I told
you not to touch the wall!” she exclaimed, somewhat aggravated. “I'm not
touching the wall,” I answered. When the electrocardiogram was finished,
I explained to her what had happened, and showed her my fingertips which
were still raised up. She was stunned.
When the anointing is on me in an increased way, I literally hear the
sound of it. The best way that I can describe it is that it sounds like
very dry firesticks burning briskly. It is like a crackling sound. It is
the anointing of the Holy Ghost and Fire! Praise the Lord!!
I believe God is preparing this vessel for a time such as this. I vow to
give Him all the glory, honour, praise, and all the credit. I don't
understand all that is happening, but I know it is of God and so my
heart is at rest. I love my Lord with every ounce of my being. May the
Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit of the Living God be glorified!
Jesus Christ is Lord. Amen.
