Supernatural Transportation – God verifying His work
One of the questions that we normally face when we begin to learn of or experience supernatural transportations, or being caught away for the purposes of God, is the question “Is this real or just a dream?”
Most of us start out with little knowledge or experience in such things so we relegate everything we experience to “dream status”. “I dreamt all night that I was praying for people.” “I had a very realistic dream that an angel was speaking to me.” These are the things we tell ourselves because it is our limited understanding coming onto play.
The more we experience these types of things, the more awareness we begin to have about them. If we allow the Lord to give us revelation and understanding, we will soon realize that these experiences are often real and true experiences in the spirit or in the body and spirit as we sleep. (Especially at first)
After a short time we begin to see with clarity that God does indeed do these miraculous things just as He did with Enoch, Elijah, Philip and others. Can the Lord literally take us into the king’s bedchamber just as He did Elisha? Yes. He can and He will, and you will know the secrets that would otherwise be hidden from you.
Seeking the Verification
When I first began to experience this phenomenon, I would get so excited I would try to figure out ways to prove the supernatural events by natural means. For example, if the Lord took me somewhere to pray for someone, I would look up everything I could about the place and people on Google when I returned, so as to have a physical verification of the event.
The Lord never really allowed that to happen as long as that was what I was seeking. There would always be some kind of roadblock to that verification. The Lord later explained to me that He did not want me to try to qualify the spiritual by the physical. He said that in that, I was still believing the physical to be the superior realm. He wanted me to understand that the spiritual realm was the superior realm. It only took me a couple of years before I truly got the point! I stopped seeking for the verification of such things.
Now those of you who know some of my story or have read some of my books know that within our family, these verifications happen quite often. Many times as I prayed over my loved ones I have been translated to where they are and the Lord gives me a peace in doing that. I have shared several such testimonies and if you love people and pray for them (as well you should) it is hugely encouraging to actually be taken to their side as you lift them in prayer. Just like Elisha in the king’s bedchamber? You bet!
I had long given up trying for “proofs” of spiritual things when I began to travel and share in various places across the world. I was focused now on what the Lord had given me to do and leaving the foolishness behind.
Have you ever Been to Macedonia?
Last year I had the honor to speak at a Russian church in Germany. There were several hundred people hungry for the Lord and all seated quietly and listening. That is… al except one guy. There was a young man perhaps thirty years old who was standing to the left of the stage just staring at me. He continued the whole time I spoke. When everything was over and the people were starting to leave he finally came over to me.
“Have you ever been to Macedonia ?” He asked. I said that I have indeed been to Macedonia. . He explained to me that he was a pastor from Macedonia who was visiting in Germany at the time. He then asked me if I had been to the city of Bitola and again I said yes. Then he asked if I had been to the public area where everyone takes walks called Korzo. I again said “yes.” He was still looking at me very strangely and said “Do you go there a lot?” “Yes” I said. “I do.”
He got very excited and said “I knew that I recognized you! You’re the guy who walks up and down Korzo and prays for people right?” I said “Yes, brother, that would be me.”
The Rest of the Story
What I did not tell my dear brother from Macedonia was that for the past couple years the Lord led me to Korzo by a supernatural means, to pray for the people in that place. This had started out for me as just a step of faith. “Going” to Korzo by translation started out by seeing it happen and experiencing it first in my imagination. Then it became more and more real every time I went until finally it led to the point where it was happening.
I had stopped looking for verifications of these types of things a while ago, but I guess the Lord sent that pastor to encourage me and let me to know beyond a shadow of doubt that He still does everything He ever did. Even the awesome miracle of supernatural transportation!
As you experience anything of a miraculous or possibly miraculous nature, always ask the Lord for greater revelation. Whether dreams, visions or any other experience, know that God could be doing more than we realize. Let’s ask Him and find out.
God bless you!
