Angels, Holy Spirit’s leading, miracles…..learn how God can be highly involved in an ordinary life….  true stories by Jean Chamblee

Now I fully believed that we have angels working with us.  I had just never seen one with wings on the earth, until that day…

I went to work in the small little town of Greenville, North Carolina. I worked at a place called S. and S. Cafeteria and it was located in the towns only mall. I drove the ten or fifteen miles to work with the radio on trying to get ready for another mundane day. I arrived on time and began walking down the hallway towards the time clock to punch in.

Out of the blue, for a moment,  my eyes were opened to the unseen realm.  The spirit realm. Lo and behold right before my eyes, standing beside the time clock, was a beautiful giant angel.  He was tall, maybe ten feet or more, and glistened like gold.  He had wings that reached to the ceiling and was so majestic looking.  It was not a frightening experience, but it startled me because it was so unexpected. Then quickly, the vision closed, but I knew he was still there. I was aware of what the Bible teaches about the gifts of the Holy Spirit located in chapter 12 of the book of 1 Corinthians. That at times when the Holy Spirit desires to, He can open your eyes so that you can see what is in the spirit realm, it’s called “discerning of spirits”, and that is what I had experienced.

All day long I wondered what the Angel was there for.  Was he there to prevent an accident?  A robbery?  My mind danced around like crazy with curiosity!  Finally, I took my lunch break and sat down at the table with my Bible.  As I was eating and reading, a young man came and sat down abruptly across from me and looked me square in the eye.  He said, “I heard you were a Christian”  I said, “Yes I am.”

He excitedly said, “What must I do to get saved?”   Well, here it was!  I knew the Angel was there to see to it that this event took place.  There is no greater miracle than the new birth, to become what the Bible calls “born again”. When someone accepts Christ and has their name written in the Book of Life. After showing him some scripture and briefly explaining salvation, I prayed with the young man at the table to receive Jesus as his Lord.   I also asked him to meet me after work to talk about the baptism in the Holy Spirit which he was excited to do! I figured he needed the whole package!

The young man did meet me in the parking lot after work and received the baptism.  It was incredible. I felt like I was living in the Book of Acts! The Holy Spirit descended on him and he was filled with God’s presence and spoke in tongues right there in the parking lot! Never think God is limited to a church for a holy experience to take place! The whole earth is filled with His glory!

I knew that this had been a divine appointment. A special one because God allowed me to see the presence of the Angel, although they are surrounding us in the spirit realm all the time, especially if we are believers. This man’s life was now transformed.  I don’t remember his name, but I saw him a year or so later and he said he was going to Bible school to be a minister. He wanted to be a Pastor.  I knew God was taking good care of him and it was a blessing to have been allowed to take part in his journey.
How cool to think of the angels involvement in our lives.  All going on around us in the unseen realm! They are around you too! The more we pray and walk in faith….the more they are activated around us!

Hebrews 13:2 “Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by so doing some have unwittingly entertained angels.”

1 Corinthians 12:7-11 “ But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to each one for the profit of all:  for to one is given the word of wisdom through the Spirit, to another the word of knowledge through the same Spirit,  to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healings by the same Spirit,  to another the working of miracles, to another prophecy, to another discerning of spirits, to another different kinds of tongues, to another the interpretation of tongues.  But one and the same Spirit works all these things, distributing to each one individually as He wills.”

Angels

Jean Chamblee    Passing The Torch     Session 12      ANGELS     From the series  “How Do I Know When God Is Talking To Me?”

    I was so excited about learning to be led by the Holy Spirit and the things God was allowing me to do.  Still, it was a growing process. 

   One summer, between college semesters I went to Statestown to visit my parents, I had an unusual experience.  I got up early to go into town to pick up a few things, it was around 10 o’clock in the morning.  I had the thought while I was driving, “Why don’t you go to Lakeview Park.”  I reasoned in my head with what I assumed was my own thought.  “I’ll go later”, I said to myself.

   The day continued and I was enjoying visiting my hometown.  While I was driving down the road, the thought came to me again, “Why don’t you go to Lakeview Park.”  Reasoning with myself again I said, “Maybe I’ll stop by and visit Sarah who lives close to the park and then I’ll go.”

   I drove to Sarah’s house and she was not home, I drove past the park, but I really did not want to go there and continued driving across town.  Once again, the thought came quite loud in my mind, “Why don’t you go to Lakeview Park.”  I began to catch on to the fact that maybe this was not my own thought.  Maybe it was the Holy Spirit telling me to go to the park.  The thought had come to me three times during the day.

   I turned the car around and headed to the park.  There was only one way to find out if this was just in my head or if the Lord had a divine appointment for me or something.  As I drove up, my eyes fell on a car parked under a tree.  I knew in my spirit, that gut feeling,  that this was the person I was supposed to talk to.  I got out of the car and walked over to him.  I never really know what to say, but had learned that honesty is the best policy.

   I spoke to him and said, “Hello, this may seem strange to you, but I felt like the Lord wanted me to come over here and tell you that He loves you.”  As I looked at him, tears burst from his eyes.  “You have no idea, you have no idea!” he said.  He went on to explain that he had lost his job that morning and his girlfriend had broken up with him the night before.  He was at his wits end and had a loaded gun waiting for him to come home and kill himself.  He loaded the gun and laid it on the chair and decided to go to the park and smoke his last pack of cigarettes.  I glanced at the pack sitting on his dashboard and there were only two left.

   I talked to him about Jesus and the plan of salvation. He was eager to receive Him.  He knew that God had brought me to him just in time.  We prayed together and he grabbed my hand, weeping as he prayed.  I could feel the Holy Spirit come so sweetly in our midst.  This man was transformed that day, he had a whole new lease on life.

   Now the funny part to me came to light when we were talking after we had prayed. He said, “I have been at this stupid park three times today, trying to finish up this last pack of cigarettes.”  I almost busted up laughing as I pictured the angels trying to get me to go to the park three times that day.  There was such gravity to the situation, but it made me laugh to think what must have been taking place in the spirit realm that day. All the effort to get our paths to cross. The angels that must have been working in the unseen realm to get me to hear and obey God’s voice and to get that guy to the park. God is amazing.  God is love!  His life was changed forever and so was mine!  What an adventure it is to learn to serve the Living God.  It is so worth taking the time to seek Him and learn to recognize His leading.       

Romans 8:14  “For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God.”
