HIS VOICE SHALL BE HEARD !
"AND THE LORD SHALL CAUSE HIS GLORIOUS VOICE TO BE HEARD, AND SHALL SHOW THE LIGHTING DOWN OF HIS ARM WITH THE INDIGNATION OF HIS ANGER, AND WITH THE FLAME OF A DEVOURING FIRE ...." Isa.30:30
Judgment IS coming! It is not IF - only WHEN!
Men and women of God - those who live and walk in the Spirit of the Living God - are bearing witness by the hundreds and thousands: This present EVIL AGE is coming to a close!
Planet earth is racing to its rendezvous with destiny! Reports are coming in from around the world through prophetic words of knowledge, dreams, visions, appearances of angels and apparitions of Jesus and other heavenly visitors - heralding the end of the age.
"CHILDREN, IT IS THE FINAL HOUR; JUST AS YOU HEARD THAT THE ANTICHRIST WAS COMING, SO NOW MANY SUCH ANTICHRISTS HAVE APPEARED. THIS MAKES US CERTAIN THAT IT IS THE FINAL HOUR" 1 John 2:18
While many of these reports are unconfirmed, Jan and I can speak of several encounters, firsthand.
Many of our partners have heard our testimony of the beautiful lady who appeared to us in St. Petersburg, Russia. We had just come from the mayor's office, where we had been given tentative approval to establish our first TV station in Russia. As we headed toward the airport, we spied a giant statue of Lenin on a large plaza in front of a government building. Our party, consisting of our attorney and board member, Norm Juggert, my son Matthew, his wife Laurie, Jan and myself, stopped to take pictures under the imposing statue of the father of communism. As we prepared to move on, a very beautiful lady with long dark hair, wearing an unusual flowing garment, approached us. She handed Jan a perfect pink rose, smiled and said, "THANK YOU.....THANK YOU."
Jan thanked her, and then called to our son Matthew to bring the camera back from the car to take a picture of out visitor. We had turned our head for only a moment or two, but when we turned back, our lady was gone! She could not have possibly made it back across the large empty plaza, the size of a football field, without our seeing her leave, but, dear Partners, five credible witnesses will testify that this had to be a heavenly visitor!
Jan saw this remarkable lady two other times in the Moscow airport, where she gave a "thumbs up" sign of approval, as we prepared to sign on our first TV station, before vanishing again!
Naturally, our [Roman] Catholic brothers and sisters believe this person to be Mary, the mother of Christ. I do not know, since she did not identify herself to us, but before passing judgment, consider the following:
In the 1980's, David Duplessis, father of modern Pentecostalism, visited Medjugorie, Yugoslavia, a major apparitional site, and concluded what he experienced was "something extraordinary." It was a revival, the likes of which he had given up seeing in his lifetime, and he spotted no "bad fruit." The heavenly apparitions, concluded the great Charismatic leader, were "of God," he said.
I will ever know that God sent this heavenly visitor to us to encourage us through impossibly trying times, as we established the first Christian TV station in modern Russia! Jan still treasures her Pink rose, pressed in her Bible!
