Coming into the Spirit Realm

P&W at MTE

(This picture was taken during a time of praise and worship
at one of the Mountain Top Encounters.)

Joyce and I are hearing of unusual things, out of the ordinary things, happening all around the world, today.

In the “Church of our Tradition,” before we received the baptism in the Holy Spirit, we chose not to believe anything that couldn’t be proven. One time we prayed and a close friend was healed, and then we, along with her husband, wondered why the doctor had so falsely diagnosed the problem. Why the doctor had caused so much fear in the family. Because of our false beliefs, our minds were so closed to the supernatural that we couldn’t believe a miracle even when we experienced it.

But then, one day in 1968, God stepped out of the pages of our Bible and into our lives.

Joyce was driving our car on a highway in New Mexico when a truck started moving into her lane. When she saw what was happening, she slammed on the brakes but she couldn’t slow down fast enough to get our car behind the truck. The truck’s big tires were getting closer and closer to our small car. There was nothing she could do. It seemed like there was no safe place to go. The area between the lanes was very rough, a steep slope with trees and bushes, even two concrete posts.

We were still going about 60 miles an hour when Joyce had to pull the car away from the truck and into this rough area. The steering wheel began jerking wildly from side to side. She was holding on with all her strength trying to control the car. And then the back of the car went out of control and begin to slide down the hill. The car was about to turn over. Two concrete posts were getting closer and closer and we both realized there was nothing she could do.

But she did the right thing! She cried out, “God save us!” and the car was instantly stopped. We didn’t feel the car come to a stop. There was no more jerking, sliding, motion. Our bodies weren’t thrown forward. All of this was happening and then, instantly, the car was completely stopped. We all looked at each other. What had happened? Joyce, our son, our daughter, me, none of us felt any motion of the car stopping. God had intervened! He took us from the natural realm to the supernatural realm, and our lives were saved from a horrible accident, very possibly, even from death.

The doctor had told me just a few short days before this happened that my life was over, that I was going to die. But when God supernaturally stopped our car, He became real in our lives. We no longer believed just in a God who was far away in heaven, we believed He was involved in our daily lives. Just one day after God stopped our car, He healed me, and that was in 1968, over forty years ago.

We were talking about this one day, when a friend told us about what had happened to him when he was in Bible School. He was taking the place of a pastor who had to be out of town and early Sunday morning he was driving rapidly on the highway to the church. A large semi-truck ran a stop sign and pulled across the road in front of him. There was no time to do anything. He thought, “Oh God, this is where I’m going to die,” and as he gripped the steering wheel, he closed his eyes. But the crash didn’t happen… He opened his eyes and as he looked in the rear view mirror he saw the truck, still across the road, but now it was behind him. How could this be? And then he said, “I never told anyone about this before. I knew they wouldn’t believe me.”

How do we go from the natural to the supernatural realm? How can we be instantly transposed from one realm to another? It’s through the power of the Holy Spirit.

In Acts 8, we read the wonderful story of how Philip led the Ethiopian Eunuch to a saving knowledge of Jesus. In verse 38 and following we read, He baptized him. And when they were come up out of the water, the Spirit of the Lord caught away Philip that the eunuch saw him no more … But Philip was found at Azotus. And of course there is Enoch, “By faith Enoch was translated so that he did not see death, and was not found because God had translated him” (Hebrews 11:5).

We live in an exciting time. We can expect to see the supernatural all around us. We can learn to live more and more, in the Spirit Realm.

A Mysterious Fire Appears

Pastor Carl and a group of Christians were camping above Jerome, Arizona, and they discovered that none of them had been able to sleep well the night before. They prayed a Prayer of Fire around them for protection, and this is what happened!

These pictures were taken just a few minutes apart.
But no one saw anything unusual until they viewed the pictures

We are reminded of Revelations 11:5a which says, “If anyone attempts to injure them, fire pours from their mouth and consumes their enemies.”

This is the first picture, taken before they prayed.

This was taken right after they prayed!

Pray this prayer over yourself and your properties Go to …

Mountain Top Encounter

“Intensified Glory” God spoke those words to me in preparation
for the Mountain Top Encounter and He spoke them to Joshua Mills
as he drove into the parking lot of the hotel. What is intensified glory?
It’s coming into the manifested presence of God.
And how awesome it was during the past Mountain Top Encounter
to have an encounter with God Himself!

Celestial Sounds

The first evening as Steve Swanson was leading in worship, the glory and presence of God kept intensifying until it was almost impossible to stand. Steve was playing in the spirit, when suddenly awesome high celestial sounds began to come out of his keyboard – sounds he was not playing

As we came into the presence of God, no one cared about the time and all two hundred of us just basked in His presence. Some stood, some knelt, some were face down on the floor, but we were all awe-stuck at being in the presence of our Almighty God.

Joshua called his wife, Janet, and their team in Palm Springs and told them to drop everything and come to Big Bear because God was doing an awesome thing. Even though they were busy preparing for their “Spirit Spa” conference that weekend, they rushed to Big Bear the next day because they didn’t want to miss this awesome move of God.

Heavenly Oil

God awakened Joshua Mills in the middle of that night and there were two angels pouring out oil in his room. He turned on the light and to his amazement there were two plastic glasses sitting on the table at the foot of his bed filled with oil. When he went to bed, these plastic glasses were in the bathroom wrapped in plastic. But now, they were unwrapped and filled with oil. Next to the glasses of oil, Joshua’s Bible was opened to Revelation chapter five and covered with golden glory dust. When Joshua had gone to bed, his Bible was lying on top of the television cabinet.

How awesome it was in the first session the next morning as Joshua was teaching on the glory. The oil of the Holy Spirit began to bubble up in his hands. He anointed Joyce and I with the oil as it flowed from his hands and we were out under the power of God. People ran to form a circle all around the hotel ballroom where we were meeting and he anointed each one with the supernatural oil that was flowing from his hands.

Angels Sang Holy

Again as Steve Swanson was leading in worship, suddenly, new sounds were coming out of his keyboard. The sounds were totally different. Steve’s hands flew off the keyboard and into the air and the sounds kept coming. We could hear angels singing “Holy” and they continued to do so for almost thirty minutes. Steve walked away from the keyboard as the angels continued singing.

We all listened in stunned silence, many face down on the floor, as the music and the angel voices continued for almost thirty minutes. During this time, there were prophetic new songs that came forth from other ministries. Again, we all knew that we had been in the presence of God and that our lives would never be the same.

Prophetic Ministry

On Wednesday afternoon, we had eight prophetic teams stationed around the room. Everyone who wanted personal ministry was prayed with and they shared later about their healings and how God had confirmed things to them– things they were praying about. They were awestruck at the accuracy of the prophetic words they received during this time.

Healed in the Glory

On Thursday afternoon many were healed as Dennis Walker joined me in calling out words of knowledge. Soon, people were lined up to testify of the miracles they had just received in the intensified glory of God’s awesome presence. As we ministered healing to others who had back problems, arthritis, carpal tunnel problems in their wrist and hands, deafness and ringing in their ears and many other problems, the excitement kept growing as we heard the many testimonies of God’s healing power.

Harvest Glory

God blesses us so that we can be a blessing to others and on the last night, the focus turned to the great end-time harvest. During the Encounter, many had gathered from other nations. As Steve was leading in praise, many began to take the flags of the nations that were at the front of the ballroom. As they began to wave the flags around the auditorium as a prayer for the nations, I took the microphone to those who could pray in other languages. As they cried out to God in Spanish, French, Russian, Tagalog, Dutch, Burmese, and other languages, you could feel the heart cry of God for the lost and dying in the nations of the world.

Life-Changing Glory

We always end an Encounter saying this was the best ever! The intensity of the people desiring to come into the presence of God, the intensity of God’s presence – is beyond description. The Encounter had begun on the first night with a “tunnel of fire” and manife­stations began to happen on the very first night.

The Encounter ended with another impartation with all walking through the “tunnel of glory” formed by the outstretched hands of many of the leaders. Many had reported seeing angels, others of having heard the voice of God, and others having been healed of deep emotional and physical needs. All of our lives were changed forever as we knew we had spent three nights and two days in the Intensified Glory of God’s awesome presence.

We were recording all that happened for our own treasure, but Joyce was so impacted by this Encounter that she asked the Lord to help her condense all that happened. Below  you can order the CD album containing the highlights of these meetings including the supernatural celestial heavenly sounds and the angels singing “Holy” that were coming from the keyboard.

We feel you will be able to experience the same anointing and “intensified glory” by listening to these CDs as was experienced in the meetings.

Plan now to join us for our next Mountain Top Encounter. A Seminar is where you come to receive knowledge. A Conference is where ministries come together and teach. But a God Encounter is where you come expecting to come into the very presence of God.

A Sphere of Glory

During a Mountain Top Encounter, the music was more and more intense.
This is a picture that someone took.

We asked Tom if he felt the heat
during the worship.

At another time as Steve came out of the Fire Tunnel,
a ball of fire hit him and he almost landed in the drums.

One of the most exciting things about serving the Lord,
is that He is the God of the Unexpected, if we will just take off our control and let Him be God.

A Banner Appears

It’s always so exciting to see the pictures that people send us after the Mountain Top Encounters. As the worship becomes more and more intense in the supernatural, things do take place. Sometimes we hear the angels singing, or the sound of trumpets, or other special sound effects “just happen.”

This is the picture that was just sent to us. The banner seems to be coming from the ceiling…

In Song of Solomon 2:4 we read, He brought me to the banqueting house, and his banner over me was love.

Several years ago, friends in Ohio sent us the picture of this banner that also seemed to be coming from the ceiling. The next day they went through all their banners to be sure, and they did not have one that looked anything like this with the blue border.

One of the most exciting things that happened at this year’s Mountain Top Encounter was a different kind of supernatural. Steve Swanson was leading in worship when he suddenly changed to a different type of song. I knew something had happened in the Spirit realm but couldn’t see anything different. We found out later that there was a man there that had not been in a meeting before where people were dancing and flags were being waved. He was going to leave, but just before he did, he prayed, “God if this is of you let them sing …” and he named a more traditional song. Steve  immediately began to lead us into that song and the man had his answer. 

And then on Wednesday morning God led us to take the session into a time of physical healing. As Steve led us into songs of healing, suddenly Nasir Iqbal, one of our faithful spiritual sons who has an awesome healing ministry walked into the room. We did not know he was coming but it was absolutely in the timing of God. We had him step into ministering healing to the sick. All who had deafness in their ears and many other sicknesses and diseases were instantly healed by the power of God. It was so perfectly orchestrated that Steve asked us later, “Did you know Nasir was coming?”

What wonderful things happen when we take off our controls
and let God be God!

Appearance of Heavenly Globes

Pastor Garitson was camping with a small group of Christians above Jerome, Arizona, and in the evening they gathered to spend time worshiping God. One of the group took this picture.

Multiple orbs 1 Immediately we asked, what are the round objects we see in the sky? We have learned these are referred to as orbs, but that is just a name, meaning a sphere or spherical object. You can find these described on the Internet as ghosts, spirits, and departed beings. Some Christians feel these are angels.

Using a photo program, we added light to the picture and more of these Heavenly Bubbles became visible. Notice the upper left corner. This object is more like we may have imagined an angel would look.

multiple orbs 2A friend of ours who knows the Pastor Carl who was involved in this time of worship, wrote that he seems to “bubble with joy” when he enters the Lord’s presence. She continued, “It is my opinion that the orbs represent bubbles of the glory of the Lord’s presence … It’s like the effervescence of God’s nature is floating down on his servants who are worshipping and praising Him.”

We want to say, “Thank you pastor for sharing this very special time with us!” These Heavenly Bubbles are also appearing in pictures taken in their church.

We have been unhappy using the word “orbs” to describe what we were seeing. We have started seeing them as Heavenly Spheres or Bubbles. Even as we were writing this, we received a copy of an email titled “Joy Bubbles.” It contained these words, “I just  remembered something I “saw” when praying for you two last night. Bubbles arising and then popping, but…with a difference. Each bubble contained GIFTS that came  floating down … and there were LOTS of bubbles!”

Through the same program, we added more light, bringing the spirit-realm into more focus, and letting the natural be “washed out.”

The Prayer They Prayed Together!

Many of us know little about the spirit realm. We operate in the areas of our five senses. We recognize what we can see, touch, taste, smell and hear. But the Bible makes it clear that there is another realm all around us. How exciting it is as we begin to see these areas become more visible.

We believe that as the end of all things comes closer and closer, we will be coming into more contact with both angels and demons. We are warned by the apostle Paul that satan can even appear as an angel of light. In making any contact with the spirit realm, we should remember that we are to try the spirits. The question A.L. and I ask is, “What do you say to the shed blood of Jesus Christ?” (I John 4:1-2) Angels love to bow to His precious name.

If you are in doubt about something you are seeing or experiencing always remember Jesus is our great protector. Be quick to use His name.

Many react in fear when they begin to come into the awesome presence of God. We have written three articles for this end time revival. One is the Discerning of Spirits for the End Time,

the second Feeling Fear in God’s Awesome Presence ,

and the third, Biblical Revival Manifestations
