“God's Signs To Me
Posted: January 15, 2009
In Isaiah 38, God sent Isaiah to Hezekiah saying, "Set thine house in order: for thou shalt die, and not live." Hezekiah turned his face toward the wall and prayed unto the Lord, and God sent Isaiah back to him and said I will add unto thy days fifteen years. God gave Isaiah a sign that the Lord would do the things that he had spoken. In verse 8 it says, "Behold, I will bring again the shadow of the degrees, which is gone down in the sun dial of Ahaz, ten degrees backward. So the sun returned ten degrees, by which degrees it was gone down."
In August 2004, God sent a baby dove to my patio as a sign that my son John would be born. In July 2008, I had prayed a prayer that God manifest himself to us, and he sent a baby dove, a second sign that John would be born.
In 1974, a lady that attended my bible study had been prayed for to receive the baptism in the Holy Spirit in the evening. She was awakened in the morning hours and looked at her digital clock, and it said 3:33. She said, "The Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost," and she began speaking in other tongues. On January 9, 2008, I awoke and looked at my digital clock in my bedroom and it said 3:33. I believed the Lord was talking to me about Terry. On the 10th, I awoke and my digital clock said 3:33 again. I knew God was talking to me about Terry.
My will is set to see God's salvation. God has never failed to perform a word that He has spoken to me about my life, nor has He failed to perform any leadings of His Spirit in my life. His leadings are as sure as his spoken words. Men walking with me have failed to believe the words that I have spoken, and God has spoken to me. They have failed to believe the leadings of the Spirit, as I told it to them. Because of their unbelief, they have not received God's blessings. Matthew 10:41 says, "He that receiveth a prophet in the name of a prophet shall receive a prophet's reward; and he that receiveth a righteous man in the name of a righteous man shall receive a righteous man's reward."

The reason that I say the leadings of the Spirit are as sure as the spoken word can be found in I John 2:20 "But ye have an unction (anointing) from the Holy One, and ye know all things." and in verse 27: "But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him." Romans 8:6 says "...to be spiritually minded is life and peace." This is why that I have confidence in my walk with God that I will not make a mistake, because I follow the anointing and mind the things of the Spirit. As I walk in the Spirit I am tempted to fear, as everyone else is and I frequently hear God say, "Fear not," and I've learned to trust those two words. When God gave Lisa to me, I heard "Fear not" very frequently, because I was afraid of the steps God had ordered me to take.
God bless you,
