1 Kings 19:11And he said, Go forth, and stand upon the mount before the LORD. And, behold, the LORD passed by, and a great and strong wind rent the mountains, and brake in pieces the rocks before the LORD; but the LORD was not in the wind: and after the wind an earthquake; but the LORD was not in the earthquake: 12And after the earthquake a fire; but the LORD was not in the fire: and after the fire a still small voice.
During my lifetime I have found that God still speaks to people because he has spoken to me so many times. The First time was when he spoke to me about my need to get into church. Secondly he spoke to me when I was in a dilemna regarding who he really was. Next was when he called me to become a preacher. You can read about these in my book “Guns to the Gospel” which can be purchased on Amazon.com. along with my other books Just a Missionary, Just A Cop, Silver Nuggets, and The Winds of Megiddo.
It was when I was writing the book Winds of Megiddo that God began to really deal with me over his soon return for his bride which will occur prior to the battle of Armageddon. As I wrote this book I had never wept so much under the touch of his Holy Spirit. The more I wrote the more I felt his speaking to me about how soon this would occur and the urgent need to get our loved ones in. Well as former missionaries to the UK I began to think of all of those that were over ther that had become weak because of the warfare tyhat they had encountered after coming to Christ. Some had fallen away and others had just grown discouraged. Then God spoke to me and instructed me to return to the UK and make contact with as many as I could. It was before my trip that all kind of events happened. One week before my departure I was attacked by swarms of Yellow flies that bit me. As a result my arms and hands became painful and swelled up. When I was stung i treated myself but nothing helped. Also when we tried to destroy the nest nothing killed these yellow flies.
It took almost a week for the swelling to go down. During that week I had many events to occur to discourage my travelling overseas. Finally the day came and I embarked on the flight to London. As I travelled around and spoke to people the Spirit of God waws upon me so strong that sometimes I could not speak but wept inside. On Saturday night I spoke in services in Oxford England and High Wycombe England. After the service in High Wycombe I met with Rev. Dennis Beadie whom I had baptized many years earlier. After leaveing him I drove to the motorway (Freeway) and thought I was driving back to my hotel but all of a sudden I found myself on the M25 headed North. Then it dawned on me God was going to direct my stay in the UK. Suddenly I realized that what I was putting off doing he was putting back on. Then I found out that verything that happened during the rest of my stay in the UK would be under his guidance. From that time on i had to suffer much for the directions that I had to follow, but it was worth every bit of suffering. My prayer now is that what I did, said, and displayed in my travels will result in someone that I reached out to would benefit from it.
