Zephaniah 3:17 reminds us that God is musical and He rejoices and sings over you. - -
The LORD your God in the midst of you is mighty; he will save, he will rejoice over you with joy; he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing.

Have You Seen Jesus Lately?

In the early 1980’s, our
friends from Bible School had moved from Georgia to California and were called
to a small but growing church in Hayward.
They invited Robert and me to help them by preaching from time to time.
On one occasion, I was to be
the guest speaker, so I invited all the workmen from our roofing company and
our family members to attend the morning service.
Here they came, bringing with them, girl
friends and different family members.
The sermon was going nicely,
and as I spoke, I mentioned that Jesus was a Personal Savior and a nearby
friend.“He is so close that we can at
any time just look over our shoulder and talk to Jesus.”
As I said those words, I turned to my left
and said, “Hello Jesus,” and continued my sermon.
Now, I did not see anything
or hear anything out of the ordinary, but an amazing thing happened at the end
of the service.
My cousin came and told me
that when I said Hello Jesus, that his girl friend’s eyes were opened and she
saw Jesus standing right there next to me.
Perhaps she did see Jesus,
and He was allowing her to know that he loved her.Other than that I have no explanation for
what she saw or thought she saw.
I am reminded of another
meeting that my mother and I attended in Phoenix Arizona.It was a week end seminar with Joyce Meyer held
at an Assembly of God church
A woman whose husband had a
business meeting in Phoenix had allowed her to come with him so she could
attend the special services.He agreed
to attend one of the evening services with her.
After the music ministry was
over, Joyce came on stage wearing a white pants suit with sparkling sequence
decorations on it.
The gentleman told his wife, “That
is impressive that all those tall young men also dressed in white sparkling clothes,
carrying shining swords, followed her out from the wings and stood behind her
during the sermon.”
The man’s wife did not see
any young men and knew that her husband was viewing angels as a sign to him and
After the service she
reported her husband’s vision to David Meyer, Joyce’s husband and Joyce shared
it at the next meeting.All were
I would like things like this
to happen more often, but I am certain that regardless if we actually see Jesus
or angels with our physical eyes, - - they are there.
