Is the Trip Still On? - September 1, 2015

September 1, 2015

(To Heaven and Back Again series)

When God told me to join with Kelly Lowe and write a book about rape, once I was convinced it was God’s will, I didn’t flinch. (read the entire story: Click HERE) I dove into the project head first. The last book God told me to write, Angels Believe in You, took me two weeks to write – it was only 40,000 words. I figured I would have this book done in a couple of months at most.

Although I’ve written several books, they have been fiction (Prophecy of the Flame series) and autobiographical (Angels Believe in You). I really had no idea how different a non-fiction book would be. Over the last five months I have researched more than 100 books, documents, and studies about women’s rights as they pertain to sexual freedom and rape laws. My ignorance on the topic astounded me
Last month, in August, I completed RAPE: America’s Dirty Little Secret; it is now being edited for release. Before writing this book, I had only used endnotes for citations from the Bible. There are 99 endnotes in this book from dozens of sources.

What about Heaven? Is the trip still on? 

You bet! God was quieter during the time I was writing, but once I put the last word on paper, my world exploded. As I finished writing, I found that I had some free time on my hands. My DVR records Creflo Dollar every day, but I quickly used up most of the back-log of events and wanted something more from God.

Mom mentioned a show that highlights miracles that God is doing in the world today. While I searched for the program, I came across Believer’s Voice of Victory. It was a small, little push from the Holy Spirit that urged me to see what the Copelands were up to. I recorded several shows from the BVOV (Believers’ Voice of Victory) Network in addition to the program on the mighty works of God.

Turns out that I recorded a re-run of a Billye Brim and Gloria Copeland series on the glory of God. Tony and the girls were up and about, and I was slightly distracted when something Billye was saying snapped my eyes back to the screen. It was something about a prophecy she was given: “Walk in the spirit this year; I will lead you. For only I have walked this way before. Into the glory we will go: and in the glory you will see and know.”

The Holy Spirit surged so strongly within me that I leapt up off the couch; my hands shot up in praise. “That’s me…Lord, that is why you’ve been so quick to answer my prayers!” I thought. I skipped the recording back. This was what God gave her for 2014. In that year, God did the following for me (Click on it to see the entire story):

The Lord really did take me by the hand during 2014, leading me to walk closely with Him. Where is the Glory of the Lord? In Heaven. Remember, I had prayed in December of 2013, “Lord, thank You for bringing me to Heaven to see Your glory, grace, and great love.”

Billye also said many things on the program about how God told her that this year, 2015, He was going to pour out His glory through his church; that people would be flocking into churches, though she didn’t know exactly how He was going to do these things.

The Holy Spirit inside me was like a child in grade school. My hand wanted to shoot into the air and I wanted to shout, “Oh, I know, I know how this is going to happen!” Once God anoints me for healing and miracles where everyone I pray for in His name is instantly healed, I will return and this anointing will be passed onto many people. He told me that I would be the first among many (click HERE for that story), which means that Christians across the world will be praying and all will be healed!

Over the next few weeks, at least a few times a week, one of the programs I watched would talk about what God has been revealing to me. I didn’t record who said them, but many high-profile preachers said that God was telling them things like:
  •   He will pour out His glory in the former and the latter rains
  •  Christians will be praying for people to be healed everywhere, in a grocery store, in the line at the bank, at the scene of accidents
  •  People will be bringing the sick and injured to the churches instead of the hospitals
Each time I heard these things, the Holy Spirit would say, “They are talking about you; what will happen when you return from Heaven.”

As soon as I stopped praising the Lord, the thought would come, “You really are becoming a narcissist, aren’t you. You think everything is about you. The whole world revolves around you.”

For three weeks I became thrilled each time another preacher spoke about me and, soon after the show ended, was condemned for “getting a big head.” Instead of my spirit soaring because what God was doing with me was being confirmed, I felt…pressured, uneasy.

The next week two more things happened:

Mom and Pops were on a Holy Land tour of Israel. In desperation, I turned to Tony. He agreed that what I was hearing was exactly what I had been talking about: the result of my trip to Heaven. Explaining the situation to Tony, I realized that these negative thoughts were an attack by that old devil…and I had let him get to me.
I thanked Tony for his help, then he added, “What happens if you don’t go this year?”

Instinctually I said, “God has confirmed my trip in so many ways. Not going doesn’t even seem like a possibility to me.”

“But what if you don’t,” Tony insisted.

I shrugged, “Well, God showed me what is to come after my return from Heaven (Click HERE). Knowing that, well, I guess I would be okay with Him delaying the trip.”

After Tony left, I prayed, “Lord, if I am mistaken in my firm belief about meditation and going to Heaven this year, please let me know. The bible tells us that you correct those whom you love and I know you love me like you love Jesus, so I trust that you will correct me swiftly. I ask that it be clear and unmistakable.”

The next week I saw the following:

  1. On the Believer’s Voice of Victory, Ken Copeland said he was told that by the end of 2015, healing services would be going on 7 days a week at the Eagle Mountain Christian Church.
  2. Stan Newton, a missionary from Bulgaria, came to our church as a guest speaker. He said that there is a prophecy that God’s glory will shine, like a bright light, from the northwest United States. This glory will shine across the entire nation, THIS YEAR. Pastor Newton said that he believes that light will come from this church and that this pastor will be preaching to the entire nation.
  3. Watching the BVOV network, I hear many comments in passing about how God has told some of the biggest missionaries from around the world to come the US; that He is going to do something here this year and they need to be here for it.
I forgot about my prayer. These last three made me waver in my recent revelation. It seemed like many of the Christian leaders across the country, and even across the world, were being readied for ME…What God was doing with ME! Who am I that this crowd of His elite, high profile, ministers should be called because of what God was doing with me? I knew that when I returned that I would need to tell people about it and pray for people, but I thought it would be kind of slow at first. Suddenly it seemed like I was a match being thrown into a pile of dynamite that God had been gathering while I was focusing on Him.

I spoke with my sister and remembered the prayer. This settled my spirit right down. God has verified that I am on the right path. The time is coming swiftly.

What about the miracle research I was originally after? 

Ten years ago I would have been intimidated by how many incredible miracles were being done. “God is already doing mighty works, what does He need me for?” I would have thought.

God has instilled in me a core of iron belief. I know He is so much bigger and better than people can even imagine. I know He wants to show people how much He loves them – each and every one of them. He wants ALL healed when Christians pray in the name of His Son. Every miracle that I find out about is just another thing to ask the Lord when I see Him. “I know all things are easy for God. Are these things that You have done? Will You do them when I ask in Your name?”

These are the more common, documented miracles that are happening today when some ministers preach and pray:

  •       Cancer is healed
  •       Tumors disappear
  •       Deaf people hear
  •       Blind people receive sight
  •       Sickness and disease are cured

Uncommon miracles that appear for only certain preachers who say God is doing it:

  •       Metal plates disappear and bone grows as it should be
  •       Limbs and organs are re-grown
  •       Gray hair turns back to its normal color and in many cases, men who are bald instantly re-grow their hair
  •       An obese woman who was prayed for began to lose weight rapidly. By the time she got home, she was a size 12.

Have you heard of some unusual miracle? Let me know so I can ask Jesus when I see Him.

In March of 2014 I released Angels Believe in You. This book covers the last 13 years of my life:

  • Seen Angels and Demons
  • Miracles from God (medically documented)
  • Signs from God - including hearing His audible voice

All of these signs and miracles have led me to one conclusion: I believe God has been leading me, step by tiny step, on an incredible journey leading to Heaven and Back Again, not through a NDE (near death experience) but through meditation. Yes, I know it sounds a little presumptuous, a little out there, but it was not my idea. I ask repeatedly, "If this is not Your will, please let me know. I want only what You want for my life." 

What follows is the next step in this incredible journey. All blog posts concerning this journey are available in To Heaven and Back Again which is updated as the Lord continues to take me on on this incredible journey. When I actually do go to Heaven, everyone who has bought this book will be able to download the latest copy and find out what Heaven is like.
