Matt

matt  larry 1 01As so many others I became a born again Christian in my youth, I went to church every Sunday; I went to my great Uncle's Bible camp for a week in the summer, the church's vacation Bible school, prayer meetings, you name it I was there. I had periods in my life when I was close to the Lord and times when I would stray.The closeness and straying periods became more exaggerated as I got older, as did my sinning. I would like to say as did my walk with the Lord, but though I loved the praise and worship in the church and the messages fed my spirit, I couldn’t help but think that there was something more. I tried meditation and found myself in the front of a group of enthusiastic Buddhists, their guru telling me there was more than one path to enlightenment. 

I knew that wasn’t the truth (John 14:6), I may have strayed, but I always knew that the Bible was the word of God and hence the truth. I tried behavioral modification workshops that increased my understanding of why my mind worked the way it did. The workshops made perfect logical sense to me and were not without benefit. But there was no God there and so no spirit and it left me feeling empty.

It wasn’t until I met the woman who would eventually become my wife that I experienced the fullness of Christ that I was looking for.  Obviously, I thought she was something special, but it was much more than beauty, much more than my infatuation.  I met her at 43 years of age and had experienced those feelings before.  No, this was a depth of spirit that I had never experienced before.  She told me of her mentor, a prophet and apostle named Larry.  I said I would love to meet him, secretly hoping to have my fortune told as prophets I had experienced in my past had done. Larry flew in from Minnesota his flight confirmation number was oddly (or not oddly once you get to know how things happen in the Lord) ‘2CMAT’. 

I didn’t know what I was expecting when I met Larry but it certainly wasn’t a heavyset version of Elvis. He was sort of an ‘Elishavis’ part prophet, part singer, and all man of God. The depth of spirit that I had felt in my wife to be was clearly present in this man and a power came with it.

As we sat down together I noticed that Larry made and held eye contact longer than I was used to. It was as though he was looking into my soul (I later found out that Jesus in him was).  After a while (I’m not sure how long, time had no meaning in the Lord’s presence) I noticed light emanating out of Larry and around his head, and a sort of fog of light filled the room in which we were praying.  That’s right, praying, who knew you could pray eye to eye the Bible does yes, the Bible’ it never says to bough your head and close your eyes. How can you see if your eyes are closed’ 

Larry then asked me to be still and hold his gaze, which I did. And then there He was or was He, YES there He was it was Jesus.  His face was sort of this hologram over Larry’s face. My spirit soared with joy and my body froze.  I was pressed back into my chair in fear and reverence.  There was no doubt who or what I was seeing.  It was Jesus Christ the son of the living God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.  He had pressed through the supernatural into the natural to reveal Himself to me.  To show me that He loved me, and that I had, that I had always had, His call on my life. 

I had found it!  The way’ The Answer’ that intimate personal relationship with my God that my spirit longed for and that I searched for and could not find in the natural (but then again, how could I find the supernatural in the natural without a guide’).  So many of my beliefs were confirmed, He is alive, He does speak through his prophet, He can be seen. I knew there was more. That void that God had put in my life, that only He and His love could satisfy, had finally been filled, and my life would never be the same. 

Thank you Larry, with all my heart

Matt

Chosen 1 Peter 2:9-10

But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light; which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy. ~ KJV
