Shortly after our previous experience I got the message !!!!!
I was working for a Paving contractor. My supervisor phoned me on Monday morning and said, since we are receiving a very light shower, let's stand by for awhile to see if we are going to rain and it will stay dry enough that we can go to work. He would call me in an hour or two.
I turned on the TV and it was on Sid Roth. He was interviewing Frances Hunter of the Charles & Frances Hunter Ministries.
It was a Saturday morning in the early Spring. I was
working in the yard and I had a plan of running an
errand before noon.
I came into the house to change cloths and as I walked
through the living room, I could see that Beth was on
the phone with her mother. She nodded her head
acknowledging she knew.
I showered and was pulling on my jeans and as I was
balancing on one foot and the other half way into the pant
leg, I heard in a loud and clear voice (go uptown). I was
startled and lost my balance and fell backward onto the
chair in front of the counter that Beth uses for doing her
makeup (can you imagine the results if I had missed that
chair and fell into the full mirror sliding glass door behind
the chair)? I said, "Lord is that you"? I was about 90% sure it was as I
have heard him several times since he shouted at me 30
years ago ( and to think it used to turn me off when I
heard someone say, I heard the Lord).
He said again "(Go uptown)". I answered "OK Lord. I
finished dressing and waved as I went through the living
room (Beth was still on the phone). Living in the South East of Lincoln, I got on South St. and
headed west. Connected with Normal Blvd and headed for
downtown. As I approached 17 th street, I said,
"Now where do I go"? He said, "(Lied Center)". OK I said
and continued on to the center at 12th and Q street.
I parked the car and crossed the street. The front door was
open, but all the windows and doors inside were locked.
"Ok, what now". I heard, "(See the man in white.)"
I looked around inside and outside for several minutes and
finally, I saw a man drive up in front in a fairly new white
Cadillac. A man got out and opened the trunk. He put
several large bundles of newsprint under and in his arms. I
open the front door and he said hello as he entered. We
introduced ourselves. He is a one man publisher and it is
his racks that is all over town with the free publications of
places to rent and cars for sale etc.
He went out to get a few more booklets for the racks and
as he was outside, I asked the Lord, ("what is to happen
here, am I suppose to say something to him"?) No answer. I
talked with him as he finished. He said good bye and left.
I was dumbfounded. I waited around a little. Looked
around and finally said, "Lord, now what" He said,
"I was just finding out if you would carry out instructions."
Beth and I discussed this and even with our experience we
wondered what was coming now? Something coming or are
we supposed to do something?
Next morning, we heard Pastor Syd make a comment in his
message which seemed a little separate from the message.
Most people might not have noticed it, but we had a strong
feeling it was for us. Pastor said
"God will test you before giving you directions."
(OH----------) thank you Lord and Pastor.
