How we, “The Chosen Ones” are able to do the things we are able to do, just as God said it would.

How we, “The Chosen Ones” are able to do the things we are able to do, just as God said it would..

How we, “The Chosen Ones” are able to do the things we are able to do, just as God said it would.

Many have asked me to tell them this true story, so I too thought it was important to share this as well with everyone that I could. Knowing God as well as I do and all the supernatural events that have and are taking place within my life I added this to the book I have written to share with the world. Everyone reading these stories once they understand what must be done in order to do these things written, will learn just how true and powerful God really is and how much He loves His Children who Love Him. “The Chosen Ones” by John Paul Continues. . .

A Birthday Gift from God

John 16.24 Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full.

Matt. 6.6 But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.

John 13.13-14 And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.

Matt. 21.22 And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive

Now many people reading this will find this hard to believe as well, yet those who understand God will also understand how this is able to work as well as it does. I knew that if I was going to ask God for His help, that I had to first make sure that things were right between God and me. I started talking to God more than I was doing at the time by telling Him what my situation was and what I needed His help with. It may sound strange to hear this, but God already knows what the problem is that you are facing in your life and He knows how to fix things before you even begin to ask Him for His help. He’s just waiting for us humans to open our hearts and share with Him our lives. This is also how we learn to build our Trust in Him. We come to Him and communicate with Him what we are thinking and what we are feeling in our hearts. If you come to God first with all of your situations that come your way in life, it shows to God that He really is first and that you understand the “Rules”, therefore He answers. Remember, that it is the spoken words that will come from the heart that God answers when you come to Him.

I found myself a peaceful quiet place, where I wouldn’t be disturbed just as I did out in the orchard. I then started to tell God what my situation was and why I needed His help. I reminded Him of what He had said to me years earlier, “Love Me, Believe in Me, Trust Me.” and then I said to God, “Love me, Forgive me, take Care of me with guidance all the days of my life.”. So, I asked God for His Forgiveness because I was so busy with my new job and that I didn’t feel that I was spending the required amount of time with Him that was needed like we use to do. Each day I made it a point to take time out to talk to God.

I asked God if He would send someone in to my life that would love me for who I was, and who would be happy with me. My 30th birthday was soon coming up towards the end of the next month. You see it’s one thing to think your problems out in your own head, but it’s a total different story when you physically acknowledge and talk to God. The spoken word is what God hears when it’s what’s in your heart that tells Him that you’re serious about your situation that is at hand. It is simple faith and trust that helps it work as well. God will be there with you no matter what the situation that you are in and listening to what is in your heart. Someone asked me what if the person cannot speak, I told them however they communicated with others is the same when you communicate with God. The importance is that it is coming from deep within your heart.

That following week I spent it down in Florida working and I had decided that I would stay over for the weekend. When I returned back home from my trip, I went to visit my ex-girlfriend’s best friend whose name is Sue to see how she was doing. She was a very nice person, and someone who anyone could just sit and talked to. When I walked into the Merle Normans beauty salon to say hi to Sue and to see how she has been doing, Sue was already in the process of working with a client and that the young lady had just told Sue just before I had entered, “I hope nobody comes in and sees me looking like this.” For her face was now covered with a green-like mud mask. Just then is when I came walking into the salon and saw them both, we all started to laugh. The young lady who was sitting with the green mud mask on said, “How embarrassing this is.” I sat down in a chair near the window and I started talking to Sue while she was still working on the young lady with the green mud all over her face.

After we had all finished with our laughing, I then started to talk about how my trip went for me down in Florida. After a while all three of us were laughing and talking together as if we were all best of friends. When the young lady had finished with her facial, she then paid and left the salon. I went out the door just behind her to take another look at her as she was walking down the street.  I then went back into the salon to asked Sue, “Who was that hot chick!”  Sue said to me, “Her name is Brenda and she works somewhere in Michigan City at some bank.”  “Wow! I said, “She’s nice and really friendly.” After Sue and I had finished talking, I went and took care of all my personnel stuff and I soon was back off to Florida again for another week of appointments.

Soon afterwards, about a few weeks had passed, I returned back home. When I saw Sue again, I just had to ask her, “What was that girls name and where did you say that she worked at again?”  Sue said, “All I know was that her name was Brenda and that she worked at some bank in Michigan City.” I tried to see if Sue could remember anything else about her, but that was all the information that she was able to tell me about this lady. Sue had never seen her before or had any other information about her to be able to share with me.

About another week later while I was back at my apartment and I was talking to God.  I said to Him that my thirtieth birthday is coming up at the end of this week and as I am getting older, I still haven’t found someone that would love me for who I am and that I would be happy with sharing my life. The next thing that happened was that I was side track, right out of the blue, that young lady that I had met now almost a month or so ago, popped up into my mind. Brenda! I said to God, “Brenda, all I know is that her first name is Brenda, and that she works at some bank in Michigan City.” Then I heard the voice, the same one that I would always hear speak to me had commanded me to pick up the phone book and to open it. So I did, and I went through the yellow pages to find “banks”, when I realized just how many banks that I now saw listed, I said to God, “There’s a lot of banks listed in the Phone Book.” (As if God doesn’t already know this.)

Knowing that there are at least 70 if not more phone numbers listed for the banks and all of their branch offices that I could be calling, and out of all the banks that were listed, how many of them would have someone working there with the name Brenda that could be working there. I then asked God, “Which one should I call?” God then said to me, “Place your finger at the top and move it down the page slowly.” With my finger now at the top corner of the page, I then started to move my finger down the phone listings slowly. I then heard, “Stop.”  I then asked God making sure, “You want me to call this bank’s phone number here?” I then heard His voice and He said, “Call”.

As I was dialing, I asked God, “What am I going to say?” All I have is just a first name and I knew that she worked at some unknown bank in Michigan City. This is going to be weird for me to make this phone call not knowing what I was even going to say when the other person answered my phone call. As I started dialing, I said to God that I don’t even know what I’m going to say when the person answered the phone. Being able to listen to God as He speaks is truly a special gift that I have been given.

As I was instructed to do by God when the receptionist answered my phone call, the first thing that came out of my mouth was, “I don’t want you to think that I’m crazy, but hear me out first please, and I will explain. I met this girl about four or five weeks ago and all I know is that her name is Brenda.” The receptionist then being very friendly at this point said to me, “Sure we have two Brenda’s working here at this location do you have her last name?” I replied being now somewhat even more nervous and embarrassed, “No, and I know how crazy this may seem to you, I don’t even know what her last name is.”

The receptionist said, “Well, we have two Brenda’s here at this bank location and their last names are . . .” I then said to receptionist, can we try the second name that you just gave me?” The receptionist then said, “We sure can, hold on please, and I’ll transfer you.” When the operator switched me over to the second name that I had selected, the lady picked up the phone and she said, “Brenda may I help you?” The very first words again that then came out of my mouth to her was, “You may not be the right person. . .”, Brenda then suddenly interrupted me as I was trying to find out even if she was who I was looking for and she said to me, “John, is that you?” I was floored and then I said, “How did you know that it was me?” Brenda then said, “I was just thinking about you also.”   “Wow, Really?” I said. Not totally understanding what was happening just then, I asked Brenda, “You’re the girl that I met about a month or so ago at Merle Normans right?” Brenda said, “Yea that was me.” We talked for a few moments and then I said to her, “My thirtieth birthday is this coming Friday, would you like to go out and get something to eat?” Brenda replied, “I would love to.” That same Friday we went out to eat and have been together now for over twenty four years.

    So I ask you, is this what you would still call just a coincidence or is this what really happens when we learn to open our hearts and share what our true feelings are with God? After all, it was God who said, “Love Me, Believe in Me, Trust Me.”

          God answered prayers when the rules are being followed. There are no such things as human instincts, only His Angels working behind the scenes, making sure that your prayers are being answered by God. Everything works to those who understand what the “Rules” are.

Gifts are acts of Love

When Sadness, emptiness, and problems find you, this is what you need to do to make things right within your life.

When Sadness, emptiness, and problems find you, this is what you need to do to make thing right within your life..

When Sadness, emptiness, and problems find you, this is what you need to do to make thing right within your life.

You would be amazed how many people forget who their first love really is and what happens when you forget Him. This is when you are in Sin and how you find yourself in the situations that you are in. I was beginning to put the missing pieces together that would unlock the doors to heaven.

Losing your way in Life

 

            I soon quit my job at the factory to now go to college full time to finish with my degree. I was just a few classes away from getting my Associates degree as an Electrical Engineer Tech. I really wanted to become a park ranger at first, but when I had learned from my conciliar that the government will only take the top two percent of the nation’s highest grads, I knew that I would never be able to make it. Even thou I loved the great outdoors as much as I did, I knew that I wasn’t the smartest. After finishing with my Chemistry and a few other courses, I then changed my degree over to an E.E.T., because at least it would now open more doors for me.

My parents soon once more tried to make my life as miserable as they could. My dad started with his dead line date once again, just like he had done to my younger brother. You would think that people would change, but old habits are too hard to break for many. My dad was now laid off from work due to the Steel Mills closing their doors for good, and it really did bothered him to see that I was trying to make something of my own life. With him being at home in Indiana everyday made everything even harder for me.

I could not do anything right in his eyes and all that he wanted to do was just sit in the garage and drink his beer.  I told him that I had two more weeks left at school with my finals and that I would be gone out from his house. He tried to con me into doing something so that he would not have to do it. He told me that he would let me stay an extra week if I would cut a giant tree that had just fallen from a storm next to our house. I couldn’t because I already started studying for my final examines which were starting the next week. I refused to cut the wood and tried to finish my semester at school, but now I was forced to find a new place to live. To say the least I did poor on some of my final exams, but I still managed to pass all of them. When I returned home that night from my last test, I went straight into my bedroom and packed all of my personal belongings and I then loaded them into my car and drove off. That was over twenty some years ago, and I only once returned because of my younger sister who asked me to come to her graduation.

I started a new job with a company that mfg. packaging equipment, and for the next two-three years while I was with this company, it managed to get listed in INC. 500 as one of the fastest growing companies. I was very seldom ever home or at my apartment. I was traveling all across North American. Day after day and week after week, I was somewhere else working while meeting other people. Some were new startup companies, but for the most of them, they were well known corporations. I enjoyed helping and being with other people so much that my customers would not purchase any other new machinery unless I was the one who oversaw the installations on their new production lines.

The company that I worked for was now being forced because of the many requests for me by their customers that they now had to fly me everywhere from one part of the country to the next to meet the trucks delivering their equipment. All of the other installers working still had to drive their own equipment to the jobs sites, but not me, I flew everywhere.

One day the owner of my company pulled me over to the side and asked me if I had ever thought about going into sales. I knew that he was now spending more money on having me fly from job to job and that he was losing profits because of me. I said to him after he had asked me, “Not really, I enjoy what I’m doing now” He asked me to give it a try and that I would be a real natural at it, so I did. He was right, I was a real natural. The pay was great and life was good. I kept on traveling and with each paycheck that I had gotten I would buy myself a new piece of furniture for my once empty apartment. At first, I just had my sleeping bag in the middle of the floor. From there I would add more furniture with each commission paycheck.

As I traveled the country side, I would see all of these beautiful sights, Lake Tahoe, Seattle’s Mt Rainer, Mt. Hood, Idaho, Michigan, Vermont, on and on. As I would explore all the sights and meet all these people from around the country, I would sometimes sit upon a mountain top and say to God, I wish that I just had someone to able to share all of these sights and experiences with. Being on the road more than twenty days a month can get to be a very lonely job. Whenever I had any spare time to myself, I would explore the surrounding area or just walk the streets sightseeing. I didn’t drink and I still loved the outdoors and exploring all of the new places that I was now visiting.

When I would return back to my apartment, the place was quiet and empty. I would take my large paychecks and just put them all in the bank. It was then that I saw a beautiful gal at my local bank. The other tellers edge me over to meet her. I told them really, what makes you think I would have even a chance. They told me to go on over and say hi to her, so I did. We started talking and one day just for the heck of it, I decided to ask her out for a date. I figured I didn’t have much of a chance, because she was that good looking and I wasn’t. She said, “Sure”. She must have known how much money I had in my bank account. It was the only other logical reason that made any sense for her wanting to go out on a date with me.

We went out and something in the back of my mind just wasn’t right. That feeling you get, uneasy, something is wrong.  It was like I kept asking myself she’s too pretty of a person to find someone like me attractive. A few months had passed and one day one of her friends told me that she was out with some others guys while I was out of town on one of my business trips. To make things worse, she was also seeing a fellow co-worker from my company that she had just met while we were at our company Christmas party. Seems my hunch was right after all. I knew that this was too good to be true and I could feel it. To make a long story short I had to break up with her. It didn’t even phase her one bit when I did. She didn’t care about me she only cared about having a good time. How can I say this, because one day I asked her what do you want to do with your life? She replied, “Sit home, watch T.V. entertain, and eat bon-bon ice cream”.

A few months had past and again I was thinking, why can’t I ever find someone, anyone, who would just love me for who I really am? Someone who didn’t have an ex or someone else that I would have to deal with like all of those other issues that they seem to bring with them into a new relationship. I was soon coming up to my 30th birthday, and I was beginning to feel like there was something wrong with me once again, just like when I was a child, when I was told that everything was my fault for being born.

Then one day the light bulb came back on again, I said, “I know what to do, I’ll asked God!” He’ll know what to do.” You see, I was so busy with working and with making money that I wasn’t spending enough time with my Father in Heaven like I was use to do each day out in the orchard. When you stop talking to God, it’s just a matter of time before things in your life begin to fall apart all around you. It happens all the time, and every time I was beginning to notice, talking to God a few times in a week wasn’t working like it used to work for me.

    There will always going to be people in your life that if you do not become as evil as they are, and feed off of each other’s misery and sickness, evil will do all that evil can and turn against you. The best thing that you can ever do is to be able to walk away just like Jesus did. Let the dead bury the dead. Do not look back and become like Lot’s wife did. There are so many people that you will meet on your way through life’s journey. If you insist on wasting your time trying to change someone whose heart is as black as the night, you will be missing out on all the others who are seeking the love that you have and being able to help them to find God.

          The more time that you spend on advancing your own career or tying to better yourself within a corrupted system, the less time that you will find to spent on building a stronger relationship with God and learning how to love others as Jesus showed us. Is not life more than just flesh, but Spirit as well? Jesus didn’t stay in one place trying to convince all the others to accept Him. He went out to make a difference in the lives of as many as would listen to Him using His love.

          Satan uses what I call “Life” as a way to keep us humans from finding the time to spend with God.  What I also have learned is that Time is more of a Constant, and that Love is a Variable. Be very careful not to fall into Satan’s trap. The less time you that you find for God your Father in Heaven each day, is like being on an iceberg that slowly drifts away out into the sea and then melts without any sudden notice. Soon you will find yourself in the ocean alone with the sharks, and nothing left for you to hang onto.

Be sure to read the next chapter of my book “The Chosen Ones” and see what God does to those of us who love him.

Things like this happen naturally and everyday for the true “Children of God”

Things like this happen naturally and everyday for the true “Children of God”.

Things like this happen naturally and everyday for the true “Children of God”

The more time you spend sharing your feelings and life with God, the more God gives to those who Love Him. God knows His Children.

As I have given unto Solomon

 

Gen. 3.8 And they heard the voice of the Lord God walking in the garden in the cool of the day:

I Kings 3.10-12 And the speech pleased the LORD, that Solomon had asked this thing. And God said unto him, Because thou hast asked this thing, and hast not asked for thyself long life; neither hast asked riches for thyself, nor hast asked the life of thine enemies; but hast asked for thyself understanding to discern judgment; Behold, I have done according to thy words: lo, I have given thee a wise and an understanding heart; so that there was none like thee before thee, neither after thee shall any arise like unto thee.

On the days that everything went well for me, I would tell God that I had a wonderful day. When problems would arise, I went out into the orchard and tell him that my day wasn’t so good and what was wrong with it. Good or bad days, I would always tell Him how much I love Him and how much He means to me. When I was hurting, I even made it a point to run to Him and cry, I was never ashamed or embarrassed to run to God. I would always repeat the words that He had spoken into my left ear each day as well. I would say, “God you said, Love Me, Believe in Me, Trust Me.” And then I would say to God, “Love me, forgive me, take care of me with guidance all the days of my life, for I love you.”

This one day while I was walking out in the orchard among the rolls of apple trees, something again had made me stop in the middle of the rolls of trees as I was praising God my Father in Heaven. For some unknown reason when I had stopped, I then turned my head upwards and looked towards Heaven. As I was looking upward towards heaven, I then heard a voice say to me, “As I have given unto Solomon the gift of wisdom, unto you this day I shall give to you a gift, Choose.” Not knowing at first which gift I would choose from, I then replied to God and said to Him, “Wealth is good and that it would make my life easier, Fame is also good for I would have many friends, Health is needed to live a long life. But of all the gifts that you can give to me Father, I will choose the one that is of the most precise of all the gifts in the world. I choose the gift of Love, for without it, there can be no life and without it I would not have found you. Then God spoke and said to me, “Be it so unto you this day for Love is the gift that I have given unto you.” With the tears of joy now falling down from my face I said, “Thank you Father, for I love you”, I then heard a thumping sound coming just next to the side of me. As I slowly turn my head down and then turning it to my left side, there stood a doe that was not more than just a few feet away from me thumping his right leg unto the ground. I had no idea where it came from and why it would have even approached this close to me. As I looked at this doe standing next to me, the doe then bowed down its head slowly. As it stood there before me as if it too had just acknowledged what it had just heard being spoken between God and I. The doe did not run for it was now at peace and I was also filled with energy from all around us.

This gift that God has given to me is the best gift that any human could ever choose from. Without true love there cannot be life or happiness. Love means more to those of us that know how to use it and not abuse it for our own gains.

          For God is to Love as Love is to God, they are one in the same for those who Love God our Father in Heaven. Jesus said Love the Lord your God with all your heart, and love one another as I have loved you. Learn to be a giver and not a taker when it comes to loving others. Never be ashamed or afraid to tell others that you love them.

As you read these true life stories you begin to see a very specific pattern that is always present. “The Chosen Ones” was written to help teach Christians and everyone else how to find God and know when you have. These things I am able to do because I am taught by God.

I am possessed by the Holy Ghost, watch out those of you who are not God’s Children

I am possessed by the Holy Ghost, watch out those of you who are not God’s Children.

I am still friends with this person, even today I still love her. At the time this took place we both were young and trying to find our ways in this life. She to loves God very much and has just purchased my new book “The Chosen Ones”  on 8.20.2013. I told her there’s even a story in it about her. I kept the names out in order to be respectful. Enjoy.

Don’t make me say it

 

Matt. 17.20 And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you 

Mark 13.11 But when they shall lead you, and deliver you up, take no thought beforehand what ye shall speak, neither do ye premeditate: but whatsoever shall be given you in that hour, that speak ye: for it is not ye that speak, but the Holy Ghost.

            This supernatural event has happened to me before, but now this time it was stronger than it has ever been, soon this would be another lesson in learning just who I was. As you already know I was going outside in to the orchard to pray to God each day that I could. Now there were some days that it was just so stormy outside that I didn’t get the chance to walk with God, or that I couldn’t make it home in time before nightfall. But whenever I could, I would still make the time to talk to Him even if I would be just lying in my bed down in the basement. I really enjoyed telling God what I was thinking and feeling when I talked to Him. When the next day came and the weather was more tolerable, sure enough that’s where you would find me, out in the apple orchard praying. Talking and praying to God my Father who I love more than my own life.

            This one day while I was at work working on my production machine, my assistant, who I also went to High school with was trying to get me involved in some sort of argument with her. Why?  I don’t remember the exact reason why, but that’s not what is important. I soon found myself getting pulled into this argument with her, and as she continued, I found myself becoming very angry at her for what she was trying to do to me.

            As we were adding another roll of material on our machine and while we were lacing it, she was still arguing with me. All of a sudden I said to her, without me being the one who really did say this to her. The words however were forced out of my mouth and I said to her, “I hope this roller falls down and hits you in the head!” That was a real intelligent statement to say to someone I must admit, but where did that come from?  As soon as I just had finished speaking the very last word, you guessed it, the large steel roller which was just above her head came crashing down.

            She stopped dead as so did I. We both stood dead still starring at one another in total amazement, she then said to me, “How did you know that the roller was going to fall?” I said to her, “I didn’t.” I then said to her, “This may sound weird, but even though I was the one who had said it, it wasn’t me who said it.” Something in me had made me say what I had just said, and when I had finished saying what made me say it, it came to pass just as I said that it would. Still both of us being in total shock, I then had to ask her, “Did the roller really hit you?” She said, “Yes, it just nicked me on the side of my head.” We both tried to make sense out of what had just happened. My assistant started to wonder as so did I, how could I have possibly known that this was going to happen just when it did, and what was it that made me say what I did when it was not me speaking. What was it that made this event take place and who I am to be able to do this thing? These thoughts kept going over and over again in my head.  

            What happened just before and what was I feeling? What, and who made me say what I had said and why did this really happened just when I had spoken those words. Something or someone is using me or taking control of my speech and making me say these things and I have no real understanding to how and why this could be happening. When I got home, I went back out into my special place and was talking to God about this event. I just didn’t understand it at this time in my life on what was happening to me and why.

          What I had done was talk to God about all my troubles and issues every day hour after hour. And when I couldn’t think of anything more to add, I would just repeat how much I love Him and Jesus for all that the Holy Ones have done and are still doing in my life. The more time that I would spend sharing what my true feelings and thoughts were with God, the closer we both were becoming and the more things began to happen with me in my life.

          Let this also be a lesson to those who are reading this book, never mess with God’s Children, if you do and you are not careful, things will happen to those of you who are not God’s Children.

Telling God how much you love Him is a good way of praising Him when life is going well for you and you want to thank Him.

Additional insert: I always knew that humans can be possessed by a demon and knowing this I wondered if the same rules apply to Angels? After all, if this were true then the rules must apply to both Angels as well as Demons. Knowing this then you understand why Jesus said to pray always. This was to keep demons from taking control over you. As for me I was praying all the time, so why did this even take place. . . there can only be one correct answer, don’t mess with God’s Children.

I wasn’t expecting an Angel to appear with gifts from God, but it happened anyway.

I wasn’t expecting an Angel to appear with gifts from God, but it happened anyway.

All this did was to have me try and find out who am I and what was going on. Why me? As for what this Angel looked like, this is the closest picture I found that anyone comes to what I saw.

God Sends Me a Special Gift

 

John 20.12 seeth two angels in white

John 12.29 said as angel spake to him

2 Pet. 2.11 angels greater in power

Rev. 3.5 He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment: and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels.

Rev. 6.11 And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellow servants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled.

After the passing of my brother, whenever I was all alone, this is when I would find that perfect time to talk to God and to tell Him just how much I love Him. After all these years that have now past me bye, I still wanted to be with God more than anything else in my life. To me being with a Father in Heaven who would love me more than anyone else could ever love me only made common sense to someone that just wanted to be loved and cared for. Seeking God and understanding Him gives us the Hope that we are all needing in order for use to start on our journey seeking God. So each day, when I would come home from work, I went out to my special, peaceful, so called, holy place, to share with God how all of my day’s events went, and all of my concerns that I was having.

The more that I would learn to open up to Him about what I was thinking and what I  was feeling in my heart at that time, the closer we would both become to each other. Each day when I walked throughout the orchard, I would repeat the words that God had spoken to me. I would say to Him “God you said, Love Me, Believe in Me, Trust Me.” And then I would add this saying to God by saying, “Love me, forgive me, take care of me with guidance, all the days of my life”. After all, what more can there be asked of each other, or what more can be added to this, for me, it is more than enough.

When my day went perfect for me and everything was going well, I would thank God for what I was given. For me, when I didn’t know what else to say to God, I would just say to Him over and over again, “I Love you God, I love you” even while I was in bed at night just before I would fall asleep, and when I would wake up during the night, I would still find myself saying to Him, “I love you God, I love you. I would also thank Jesus as well but as Jesus commanded, I would always put His Father God first.” Over and over again, I would repeat these words each day as well as each night whenever I could, I would.

One day I wondered to myself, how long does it really take God to answer prayers? I read in my bible that it took an Angel up to thirty days to return with an answer to a prayer because of the prince of Persia held the Angel back and it was only delivered when Michael came to help get the message through. As I was thinking about this to myself, I wondered how long does it take for me to get an answer from God? After all, I was given this very special gift from the time that I was a child. I still did not quite understand what my real purpose was for these things that were taking place in my life. Now keep in mind that I was only thinking about how long it takes for me having this special gift. I did not mention a word about this to God my Father in Heaven. I was only wondering how long it would take.

So, I began to count the number of days that it would take before something that would happen to me.  Day after day, I went into the orchard to walk and talk with God, and each day I would say to Him, “I love you God”, and then I would repeat this quote to Him, “God you said, Love me, Believe in Me, Trust me.” And then I would say to Him over and over again, “God, Love me, forgive me take care of me with guidance all the days of my life”. I would ask God, “What am I to do with this life that you have given to me? Why do all these things happen to me?

Seven days had now past and on the seventh night, as I was awakened and for what reason I did not know, however I was now wide awake and I could not fall back to sleep again. I kept looking at the red LED clock radio that was on the top of my dresser. Hour after hour I was trying to fall back asleep, but I just couldn’t. As I was lying on my side, looking at the time, the clock had just turned to 12:00 midnight. Midnight I thought to myself and I have to get up and go to work early.

As soon as it did, I now noticed that an Angel was now standing at the foot of my bed. I sat upright to see what this Angel wanted from me. As I sat looking at him, not being afraid but rather at peace, for he was semi-transparent and glowed with a white light coming from within and throughout him and throughout the white robe that he wore. His hair was not long, but it was light in color, like gold. On his robe around his neck area, the fabric design was of a square cut with a thick gold border along the edges. On his right side, there were suspended white robes, just like onto the one that this Angel wore, and on his other side, there was a single robe which was held in his left hand. This Angel did not have any wings to him.

As I looked at this Angel standing at the foot of my bed, I then asked him,” Who are you and what do you want?” The Angel then replied saying to me, “You earned six. You now have seven.” As he spoke these words to me, he took the seventh white robe, which was by itself in his left hand and he then placed it with the other six that were on the Angel’s right side. When the Angel had finished placing the seventh white robe onto the other side with the six white robes, I then said again to the Angel, “Who are you, and what do you want?” This time without any facial expressions, the Angel then lifted up his left hand, and as his left hand was raised, as if he was going to point at me, I was pushed down backwards into my pillow with such a great force as I have never felt before as a human. It was as if this Angel’s entire hand was now placed over my face and he had pushed me backwards with such a great unseen force. He did this while not even touching me from where he stood at the foot of my bed.

When I hit my pillow, I bounced right back up into the sitting position like a rubber band. When I did, the Angel was there no more. I then turned and looked at the red LED clock radio to see if this really did just happen to me and when I did, the clock just then turned to 12:01. My body felt as if I was hit with electricity and now all my senses were out of whack. This is what I now call being “Zapped”.  When an Angel gets to you, the power that you feel is like being “Zapped”. You feel great Love, Peace and Joy.

Who am I now that even the Angels will come to me bearing gifts from God Himself? Why me, what do the Holy Ones want, and who am I? What are the white robes for and what do they mean, I have no idea. Is this just a gift, or could this be taken as a symbol of things yet to come in my own life. The Angel did say to me, “You earned six”. How did I earn them and what did I do to earn them? All I did was go to God and share with Him all my problems, and how much I wanted to be with Him each day. I love God more than life or anything else that I know of.

The next day when I arrived at work, I was so excited. I just had to share this event with all my close co-workers. Interesting to see how some people would react when you tell them that an Angel had just visited me. Some of them  just laughed and made a joke out of it, while some of the others would not know how to react to this true story of mine, and even a very few of them started to cry when I told them what had just happened to me. To me it didn’t matter if they believed me or if they did not, the truth was that God had chosen me to receive this special gift.

I did not know what the white robes meant, so I started to look up everything that I could find about white robes in the bible. Some will be given white robes when they die refusing the take the mark, while others were given white robes that have died for Christ. But the Angel said, “You have earned. . .” not, “You will earn”.

   Now I have also learned that God even knows what I am thinking even if I don’t say it. How else was an Angel to know that I was counting the number of the days that it would take before something would happen. To have an Angel bring me a gift from God my Father in Heaven delivered to me by an Angel, while I was still alive is truly remarkable.

          What is it that I am doing that is so different from what everyone else in the world is doing to have caused these events to take place throughout my life?

           I went back over the steps carefully trying to put the pieces together. There is a pattern here that I am beginning to see that happens every time. I am always helping people whenever I can, but that’s not what I am doing differently from what everyone else is doing. Maybe it’s the way I am helping others that is different from what the others are doing that makes these things happen. What is it that I am doing to cause these things like this to happen to me? Now I had even more questions that I needed to have answered.
