a result of this crisis I asked God to reveal Himself to me. On Good Friday
1970 I went to sleep and found myself in a different realm and saw the shekinah * glory cloud around me. I experienced the love of
God there was no escape from it. My body became invisible as the light of God
made it so and I was overwhelmed by the experience that I could not help but
worship Him and became aware of beings around me. . angels and / or men I was not sure!
* Note On
The Shekinah Glory is the
manifest Presence of God. The Shekinah means the Presence of the Messiah. It is
Y'shua, God's Anointed, who is the manifestation of
God's glory, as we read in the Bible.
"The Son being the radiance of
God's glory and the exact representation of His very being and nature, upholds all things by His powerful word." (Hebrews
Shekinah is not actually a Bible
word, but it is a Biblical concept. The word comes from the Hebrew verb
"shakhen " meaning " to dwell. "
Shekinah is the truth, revealed
in Scripture, that God will dwell with men: He will tabernacle Himself among
them, and the intrinsic glory of His divine nature will be revealed and seen.
The Shekinah has been manifest at times in both Old and New Testaments.

I wanted to do was to stay where I was .When I woke up from that experience the
first thing that I wanted to do was go back there. From a position of being an agnostic
I found myself believing God so much that I gave my heart over to the Lord.
Months later when I started to read the Scriptures I came across The Book of
Revelation particularly chapters 4 and 5 (see below for few verses) and know
what John experienced was my experience?
I beheld, and I heard the voice of many angels round about the throne and the
beasts and the elders: and the number of them was ten thousand times ten
thousand, and thousands of thousands; 12 Saying with a loud
voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and
wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing. 13 And
every creature which is in heaven, and on the earth, and under the earth, and
such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, heard I saying, Blessing, and
honour, and glory, and power, be unto him that sitteth upon the throne, and
unto the Lamb for ever and ever. Revelation -
If you are not saved or a backslider I urge you to give your life
to Jesus Christ. I offer the following prayer below as a first step.
Heavenly Father I come to
you now. Lord, I am a sinner. I have sinned against you, even this day, but Lord,
I come and ask you in the name of Jesus that you will forgive me for all my
sins, that you will wash me in the blood of Jesus and I shall be cleansed from
all sin. I thank you now for saving me. Come into my heart and into my life and
Lord, lead me by your Spirit and help me to live for you from this day forth. I
thank you now in Jesus' name, Amen.
