I was a newborn in Christ, a young christian and very close to the Lord. I prayed three times a day and fasted often. Having a lot to learn, I searched diligently through the word of God for his true divine guidance for my life. I was schooled on the word of God by my parents, but I wanted God to show me the plan of salvation and the right path to choose for my life so I could have a closer walk with him and that he alone would reign in my life.
I began to have a vision of a ship sailing into a bright light. The ship is sailing into the light and there's people on this ship. I also am on board this ship, there are others in front of me and their shadows were all I could see of them, but there was one taller figure up to the front of the ship. It's Jesus guiding the vessel that is so peacefully sailing through the air and heading toward the light as if it were a doorway to Heaven.
The first thing I thought, it was all just my imagination and dismissed the experience as my thoughts running away with me and tried to just forget about it. Then it began to be a daily occurrence, this vision would not go away. I couldn't concentrate when praying. I couldn't concentrate when reading the Bible. So I asked God, "What are you trying to tell me? Why am I seeing this vision?"
So one night I came home from church and my parents had gone to bed and I was sitting at the kitchen table alone that night, trying to read my Bible and the vision appeared again, it's right in front of me as if I could reach out and touch it. In "The Eye of the Mind" I said, "What is this vision Lord? He said, "Go the book of Ezekiel!"
So I turned to the first chapter of Ezekiel and began to read. The heavens were open and Ezekiel saw visions of God. I'm not sure what the chapter is really about. It talks about four creatures that ran and returned as a flash of lightning. They would go where ever the spirit led them, and they turned not when they went, they everyone went straight forward.
It finally made sense to me, they turned not when they went, they everyone went straight forward, where the spirit would go they went.
I thought, "that's the way the ship is sailing, straight forward into the doorway of light!" I realized God was telling me to keep going straight forward with my life and turn not, left or right. Stay on the path I'm own and his spirit is there to lead me.
What happened next is hard to explain, but one thing for certain God confirmed the revelation. All of a sudden, an overwhelming power fell on top of my head and began to run down my entire body to the soles of my feet and then it would run back up my body to the top of my head. It was so powerful, it felt like warm electricity running from the very top of my head to the very bottom of my feet. It kept going up and down my body and I was laid back in the chair, strengthless and enjoying this wonderful feeling of power moving on me.
Then what happened next was amazing! I could feel my spirit leaving my body as if I were going somewhere and I wanted to go, but I asked God, "How will I get back into my body?" Immediately I was back in my body and I was seriously disappointed because of my lack of faith.
So when I opened my eyes, I was leaning back in my chair repeating the words, I love you Jesus! I love you Jesus! I was weak from the power running up and down my body. I wanted to see what I looked like, so I stood up to go look in the mirror and my knees buckled and I leaned on the kitchen counter until my strength returned.
When I looked into the mirror, I was amazed at my appearance. My face was white and glowing as a light bulb. My eyes were so red, they seemed to glow also, I was absolutely astonished. I felt like a new man. All I could think is "WOW", what just happened? I haven't shared this story with hardly anyone, mostly because some would say I'm making it all up.
What I have learned from the experience is this, "God's angels are ministering spirits that he sends to us to minister to us and they move like a flash of lightning and they go where the spirit leads them. We as the angels of god should also follow God's spirit and turn neither right or left but go straight forward.
