The Voice of God - 313

The Miracle

313 Video

I hoped this day would not come; it was my intention to never speak about these things outside of the book God told me to write. In my prayer time with the Lord, He asked me to tell you the full story of the miraculous sign of 313, leaving nothing out. For the first time I will share everything, all at once. This is so you know how I received this number and could then see how it applies to you and your life.

The very first year I devoted my life to God was filled with signs, wonders, and miracles. In the early summer of 2001, I lay in bed, praying as I always did, “Dear God, I thank you so much for…”

A loud voice that sounded like it came from everywhere and nowhere interrupted my prayer and said, “I bless you.”

I didn’t look around, wondering what was going on instead I sat up and said, “Lord!” I don’t know how I knew it was the voice of the Shepherd, I just knew without a question it was the Lord Jesus. He continued, “Miraculously.”

Wow, I thought, You are going to give me another miracle – maybe You will heal Tony this time.

Obviously I was missing the point. He added, “Financially.”

My thoughts stuttered to a stop. You, God, want to do something with money?

A scene flashed before my eyes, something I had never dreamed of or even remotely wanted:
I was standing in front of a line of microphones, some were labeled, NBC, ABC, FOX. People were behind me but I do not remember who they were. Half a dozen cameras were poised, ready to record whatever I said.
The next morning, I woke with a burning question on my mind: Is the notion that God might bless someone financially actually supported by the Bible? I had no place to turn but to the television. Every minister I listened to on any channel said, “God wants to bless you financially.”

My relationship with my Heavenly Father was very new; I had not yet learned to seek answers from His Word. To complicate things further, my husband didn’t want to attend church, except on Christmas. I didn’t want to alienate Tony or create a wedge between us by going to church without him. Though I read my Bible most days and spent much time seeking Him, my journey with God was a very long and slow process.

I knew so very little about God and His ways. The voice was so immediate, so final, I figured money would just show up. I expected it each and every day. The only way I could conceive of God blessing me financially with cameras recording it was the lottery. When the jackpot was big, I would pray and the Lord always said, “bigger.”

This puzzled me. A person only really needed so much money. There were less than 50 people at my wedding. What use would I have for more? It seemed terribly unnecessary.

The Lord firmly told me, “The more you have, the more people you can help.”

Shortly after that, I had a dream of tent cities all across America. I stood with an unknown man looking out of a large window at a hotel. “There are so many who need our help.”

The man replied, “Yes, but you have helped so many already.”

This dream changed the way I looked at God’s blessing. I now knew why He would do it: I was expected to help others with it.

A few days later,  as I changed my six-month-old daughter’s diaper, in the quietness of my heart, I heard, “Get your house in order.” I knew the voice was from God.

I’m probably winning the lottery tomorrow. The news crews may be on their way, I thought, as I started working on the laundry.

While in the shower I heard it again, “Get your house in order.” I looked around as I got dressed and saw my house was in a slight state of disarray. With a six-month-old baby, is it any wonder? I began to clean.

All week long I heard, “Get your house in order.” Over and over again, I would hear the voice. I noticed the floor needed to be vacuumed; the blinds needed dusting, and so much more. Spring-cleaning had come to the Hardy home, just a bit late. To this day, my house has never been more spotless!

Finally, one morning, after I put the baby down for a nap, I reconciled the fact that I hadn’t won the lottery the night before, even though my house was sparkling. “What was the Holy Spirit trying to tell me?” I wondered. By this time I understood that God brings wisdom through His Word.
I brought out my Bible and prayed, “God grant me wisdom.” The book opened to a random page that I read:

Ephesians 5:21–25 Amplified Bible (AMP)
Be subject to one another out of reverence for Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One). Wives, be subject (be submissive and adapt yourselves) to your own husbands as [a service] to the Lord. For the husband is head of the wife as Christ is the Head of the church, Himself the Savior of [His] body. As the church is subject to Christ, so let wives also be subject in everything to their husbands. Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave Himself up for her…
My mouth dropped open. I had not yet shared God’s revelation with Tony! Every night I planned who I would help with the financial blessing, never even thinking of my husband and how he would feel. I sighed, okay, Lord, if that is what you want, I’ll do it, I thought, not looking forward to telling Tony about more “God stuff.”

It went about as well as can be expected. My husband said, “Oh, sweetheart, you have such a vivid imagination. After all, didn’t you write an entire book before Ashley was born?”

That night, I prayed, “Lord, speak to Tony so he will see that You know and care for him, so that he won’t deny the blessing is from You when it comes.”

I prayed the same prayer, night after night. After more than two months, my prayers were answered.

Tony came home very excited, “I’ve got something to tell you. It is really weird, but it doesn’t have anything to do with that God thing.”

My husband ate at Jack in the Box, a fast food restaurant, for lunch quite often because it was close to work (yes, I know, so very unhealthy…). Three times this week he received the same number on his receipt, 313.

Tony knows math – he’s an engineer. He said the odds of getting the same number twice in the same month was like being struck by lightning. Getting the numbers three times in the same week was like being struck by lightning nine times. “But it has nothing to do with that God thing,” he was quick to point out.

Mom, my spiritual advisor, explained: “Tony heard from God three times, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit - the number three.”

I consulted some friends of ours. Cheryl said, “God is a Trinity, three, and God is all… one, and God is three – 313. But there’s more…. The numbers add up to seven – God’s number of perfection!” Seven is the number of completeness and perfection in the physical: After seven days the world was complete and perfect. The seventh day is also the Lord’s Sabbath, set aside for the faithful to feel spiritually closer to Him.

Cheryl’s husband Jeff said, “I don’t see God in every tree and every flower like my wife, but if Tony is waiting to hear from God, what more does he want, a bolt of lightning?”

At first we used the numbers on the lottery to no avail. It took seven years, but I finally learned to stop seeking the lottery and focus on God. We vowed to not play the lottery again and asked God to send us the numbers when the blessing was at hand: only if we heard His say to play the lottery would we buy the ticket.

It has been 18 years since God spoke to Tony, twelve years since we stopped playing the lottery, yet no miracle has manifest. I now know why it was counted to Abraham as faith when he spoke with God, walked with God, and remained in faith for 20 years before the promised son came. It has not been easy to stand in faith all these years.

The Lord spoke and declared the end at the beginning, as He often does. Over the last decade, He has gently opened my eyes to what He fully expects of me.

  • 2010 I started a 501(c)3 non-profit to help provide for homeless families. 

This non-profit was set up to help the homeless through churches. Next the Lord told me that half goes to help my family and half goes to help others. When He said this years ago, I thought that was still too much for my family until He told me I was to be a pastor.

  • 2018 Agape Christian Fellowship began

The Lord said: “Who is My mother, brother and sisters? These gathered here are them.” My spiritual family is growing quickly. Only God could arrange things in this order.

The world government system makes it very difficult to collect tithes and offerings with a checking account unless you have a non-profit. I had no idea I would need one to keep my church from being under the thumb of the government. If a church is registered as with the American Government [501(c)3], they can tell us what to say and not to say. They can tell us we have to marry women to women and men to men. Without being registered with them, it can be very difficult to operate financially.

Praise God He knew what was needed. Most churches who have a “program” to help others after your tithes and offerings take care of operational costs of the ministry. We have a program that collects tithes and offerings supplying the church who will use all excess funds to help the homeless!

It is important for you to know that God has shown me what is on the horizon for the next decade. God will soon pour out His glory like it hasn’t been seen since the Book of Acts. Unfortunately, it will follow the same pattern:
And there stood up one of them named Agabus, and signified by the Spirit that there should be great dearth throughout all the world: which came to pass in the days of Claudius Caesar. (Acts 11:28 AKJV)
There will be a world-wide depression beginning within the next 3-7 years. My new Christian brothers and sisters will need help in the days to come as well as those that aren't - the half outside my family. But when would God’s blessing be manifest?

Recently, Tony’s work place of 20 plus years has been bought out and has quickly become a hostile environment. My husband was greatly depressed. He said, “you have been waiting on God for all these years, but nothing has happened. Now it's looking like I may need to change jobs at nearly 50 years old!” He was really struggling.

When Tony missed work on Monday I prayed with him, “Our Heavenly Father, we come before you, not in our own righteousness, but in that of our Lord Jesus. We stand here and confess that we have brought into your kingdom your tithe. Your word says that you provide for us, so I thank you for providing for our family. Please bring Tony peace and joy concerning his work. Show him where he is to be and what he should be doing. Close firmly the doors he shouldn’t go through and open the doors no man can shut which leads to his destiny. Holy Spirit, I ask that you speak loudly to my husband. I know You can speak so he can hear you. I thank you for guiding him and showing him your way. I ask these things in the name of Jesus, amen.”

The next day at lunch, Tony received the numbers 313 on his lunch ticket once more. He sent me a picture with a text: What do you make of this?

“I don’t think it is the lottery. God has shown through miracles that His blessing is coming through the books I am writing. I think God is encouraging you. His blessing in on the horizon. You don’t need to worry about your job right now."

Later that night I prayed and thanked God for encouraging Tony. I was shocked to hear God say, “Encourage My Children. Tell them the full story of 313. Look it up in my Word and I will show you what they need to know.” When I began looking at the meaning of the numbers and at the scripture, I was shocked at how accurate it was. The New Testament scriptures outline everything God has told me I was to do.  By looking at what  is being said, who is saying it, and to whom it pertains, we can then apply it directly to our current time.

Matthew and Mark are about being called for a job and having others join me in that work.
And he said to them, Exact and collect no more than the fixed amount appointed you. (Luke 3:13)
This is the first thing God told me: His people were charging for things they shouldn’t. Our Lord told us, “freely you have received, freely give.” If we didn’t pay for the revelation, the anointing, we shouldn’t be charging for it.
And no man has ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven. (John 3:13 AKJV)
Before I published the “Roadmap to Heaven,” the Lord showed me how people had taken this out of context to prevent His bride from joining Him in Heaven. This was being said to people who didn’t want to follow Jesus, they were looking for someone to go to Heaven and come up with a different way for them to saved.

Acts and Romans describes the corruption that we know has come to many leaders in the body of Christ.

1 & 2 Corinthians, read together, shows something quite interesting:

  • Those who have corrupted the work of God will be plainly seen for what they have done.
  • The glory on Moses’ face dimmed and faded: the time is coming when the anointing will stop flowing for those who are not following God’s ways. Some of the leaders will try to hide the fact that God's glory is no longer with them.

Believers' Boot Camp: Volume Two
Roadmap to Heaven

in the Courts of Heaven

Many people think of boot camp as a place you train for combat. Any veteran will tell you that basic training is about three things:
  • Knowing what weapons are available 
  • Learning how to use those weapons 
  • Receiving orders and following them 
Believer’s Boot Camp series is a collection of books which teach us how to hear more clearly from God with the goal to ready ourselves for a face-to-face meeting with our Lord, Jesus. The series reveals the “weapons and tools” God has given us and how to use them, so we can bring God’s kingdom to Earth. Each book in the series focuses on a single topic to clearly define one tool or weapon from our Heavenly Father. 

The series uses the Word of God to reveal all that He has given us through Jesus. The Bible is our instruction manual and the Holy Spirit is our guide to understanding it.

Volume 1: Why Doesn't God Speak to Me?

Eager hearts cry out, hoping for a single word to confirm that He hears us. Yet, many times the only sound is silence. Over the years I have heard several reasons why God speaks to some and not to others. One night, as I tossed and turned, I brought each of these reasons before the Lord, stating why each of them did not line up with who I thought He was. 

Words rose from my soul, pleading for Him to reveal why He has remained silent when a single word from Him would mean so much to so many. For the next few hours, God used things I learned about years ago and things I had just discovered to show why He talks to some and why He doesn’t, and in demonstrative ways. 

In His grace, He also showed me how people could hear more from Him. Basic instructions on how to hear more from God and how to be led by Him are included in this book. Thank you for taking time to consider the answers I received and share with you now.
