“To him give all the prophets witness, that through His name whosoever believeth on Him shall receive remission of sins.”
Every time I prayed, it felt as though I should read Jesse’s book. Yet my thoughts were conflicted: “I don’t want to be influenced by what someone else reports, Lord. I want to see Heaven for myself.”
Over the years I’ve noticed that if God wants you to do something, He doesn’t give up until the opportunity has passed. When the thought persisted for a couple of weeks, I finally realized that God had a purpose in having me read that book. I searched for “Close Encounters of a God Kind."
I got a little choked up, tears in my eyes threatened to overflow when Jesse described Jesus. It always amazes me when people meet God and Jesus that they see fit to argue with Him in person. I was getting a grip on myself when I read the part where Jesus tells Jesse, “Everyone looks for the signs when they ought to look for My witness.”
A ball of emotion welled up in my chest and tears ran down my cheeks. The Holy Spirit whispered, “That’s you.”
