An excerpt from an article by
Each evening I look forward to my time of prayer - to a time
when I feel I am connecting and communicating directly with
the Lord. For years, many of my prayers were much like any
one else, asking for the things I felt I needed in my life,
and that of family, friends, coworkers, and the world. I had
spent my time asking for things from someone I did not know.
Then I began to realize a deeper need that was not so evident.
I thought that if God loved me as much as I had been taught
to believe, then He also desired that I would come to personally
know Him. I made an effort to listen, to become attuned to
the “voice” within. On this particular evening
I laid in bed praying, listening and trying to shut off my
brain with all it’s thoughts and ramblings, until it
was still, so that I might hear His voice.
I do not remember falling asleep, or a specific moment when
things changed, but at some point I was caught up, feeling
His presence. I found myself in another world - a place where
time did not exist, where there was nothing physical to be
seen or experienced. The only way I can describe it visually
is space without stars, dark, but full of light.
Before, and all around me, were “beings” of light.
I suppose you can call them angels, but that is an elementary
description of what I was seeing. I did not have a body, and
I could not see myself. It was as if my mind was existing
somewhere else. I remember feeling like I was being held up
or supported by two of these angels, but I could not see them.
There was a tremendous beautiful white light in the center
of my view. It was pure. I do not know how I knew this, but
I knew this was God. I did not see a man in a long flowing
robe, or with long hair or a beard, just pure white glorious
light. All around Him were billions even trillions of angels
that extended for what seemed like millions and millions of
miles. I felt so far away, but I felt so close at the same
time. It was as if time and distance did not exist.
The angels were all light, there were no features that were
recognizable, or distinguishable. I could not see a difference
between male and female, black or white, American or European
- there were no differences. They all had somewhat of a bluish
indigo color in the center and other colors, even smoky, but
brilliant. I was absolutely fascinated and overwhelmed by
what I was seeing. Then I became aware of what I was feeling.
I was completely and totally saturated with love. Every molecule
of my being, or whatever you want to call it there, was permeated.
His love is so powerful it literally touches every single
molecule, atom, and electron. I realized in that moment, here
on earth in this life, we are poorly equipped for the expression
of this great love. Here, we get glimpses of love, through
the nice things we do, the things we say, and the tears we
shed. We can only attempt to express this through our acts
In heaven (if this is where I was), love is not expressed,
it simply and magnificently just is! I remembered Scriptures
that describe God as being love. God is love. His love is
so pure it is as if it is tangible - you can touch and see
it. I felt totally connected with Him, like being submerged
in warm water, not only did I feel it’s effects on the
outside of my skin, but also within.
Another remarkable thing is that I was communicating with
these angels, but not with spoken words. We did not have vocal
cords, as nothing of flesh could withstand His glory. I understood
it, remembering again, that if we saw the face of God, we
would die, not being able to withstand it. There was so much
On earth, we communicate with body, or spoken language, with
writing, and with music. But in heaven, everything is before
you, there is no need to question, no need to discern or figure
out something. There are no language barriers. Here, we receive
tremendous amounts of revelation knowledge by seeing.
I now understand the importance and advice of the Scriptures
to “not look upon sin” because we literally take
it into our being. Our eyes are truly the windows to our souls,
and likewise with our ears. What we choose to listen to, ends
up residing in our spirit. In heaven we truly are transparent,
because we are a reflection of Him.
I remember formulating the question in my mind why all the
angels were the color they were. I received my immediate answer
then, and continue to receive it to this day. The angels were
literally a reflection of the pure white light. God taught
me about the light spectrum and how you could split pure white
light with a prism, to see all the colors of the rainbow.
Days later I asked for more information about what I experienced
and God caused me to think about a prism, and taught me a
God has many characteristics and it should be our goal, to
line up with Him to reflect all the many colors (characteristics)
of Himself. When a prism is lined up with a ray of white light,
most colors become visible. The true nature of the light is
revealed and expressed. It is the same with God. When we become
attuned to Him, lining up with His ways, His true nature is
revealed through us.
Another aspect of this experience was much more powerful
than what I was seeing, or feeling - it was what I was hearing.
There was such beautiful music. The most beautiful music
I have, or ever will hear. All these millions of angels were
praising Him, in complete adoration and worship, but what
was even more amazing was that this music was not being sung
with their mouths, it was simply emanating from their inner
In this life, we would say that it was coming from their
hearts. I was humbled by this. The only way I could describe
it so it can be comprehended, is to ask you to imagine the
whole world, all of creation, every living thing, from the
biggest mammal to a one cell organism, even the ocean and
winds, singing in perfect, absolutely perfect harmony.
This music of heaven flowed continuously and smoothly. There
is nothing that can compare or accurately describe the sheer
power of it. The sound literally penetrated and permeated
every single molecule of my body. The music was in itself
another dimension of the atmosphere. It was as if what I was
seeing with my spiritual eyes was being produced by what I
was hearing - the two were so perfectly joined.
One thing that I knew without any doubt was that the music
is what kept the angels lifted up. The vibration of this sound
kept them suspended and circling around Him. They were compelled
to worship and praise and it was as if they had no control
of this music that emanated from their inner most part.
I remember the story of the woman that had an issue of blood
in the Bible, and how she struggled to touch the hem of Jesus’
garment. He spoke about how “virtue” went out
of Him. Being in the Lord’s presence like this, you
lose control and this music/worship begins to flow from deep
within, to Him.
If the angels were to ever stop praising, and just one had
the beginnings of a thought to praise Him and sing, all the
other millions and millions would instantly join in. Even
thoughts are visible in heaven.
I think about the evenings when I sat on our back porch while
growing up, and listened to the crickets and frogs, sometimes
even the whippoorwills. If one started to sing, they all did
- like a mighty chorus instantly turned on by the voice of
just one. I am amazed even to this day, at the evidence that
surrounds us, which speaks of God.
We are approaching a time when we will experience exactly
what I have tried to describe. Ultimately it will be an outward
flowing of what resides within our hearts, the very essence
of who we are.
“Then I looked and I heard the voice of many angels
around the throne, the living creatures, and the elders; and
the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and
thousands of thousands, saying with a loud voice: Worthy is
the Lamb who was slain to receive power and riches and wisdom,
and strength and honor and glory and blessing!
“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, I heard saying: Blessing and honor and glory
and power, be to Him who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb
forever and ever!” Revelation 5:11-13 (NKJ Version)
