“My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one can snatch them out of my hand. My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all, no one can snatch them out of my Father’s hand. I and the Father are one.”
John 10: 27-30
“For many are invited but few are chosen”
Matthew 22: 14
“You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit—fruit that will last. Then he father will give you whatever you ask in my name.”
John 15 : 16
But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. Once you were not a people, but now you are the people of God; once you did not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.
1 Peter 2:9
As for you, the anointing you received from him remains in you, and you do not need anyone to teach you. But as his anointing teaches you about all things and as that anointing is real, not counterfeit—just as it has taught you, remain in him.
1 John 2:27
…”I was found by those who did not seek me; I revealed myself to those who did not ask for me.”
Romans 10: 20
Have you ever wondered why it is that some people have an angel appear to them and others do not? Well, I believe those who have an angel appear are chosen for a specific purpose in the kingdom of God. Many others are called and some serve accordingly, but there are some of us that would not have been directed in the way of the Lord had it not been for the angel appearing before us. We simply are those who were un-churched or not been approached by those who are out there with the fishing nets. Or may just have not been properly discipled within the church to handle the things that God has for us. Yes, unfortunately there are those of us even in the U.S.A. that need the outreach ministries that are so far and few between. I was one that never was approached.
God knew in advance what my situation was and would what would be happening in my life, which is exactly why he sent the angel of the Lord down to my bedside one dark night when I was 7 years old. I’ll never forget it. It’s been the only thing I’ve hung onto at times. I was scared of the “monsters “in my room. I later found out about the demonic forces they truly were. Anyway, I had the covers over my head, afraid to look out when suddenly a peace came upon me , I looked out of my covers and witnessed the most profound thing I have ever seen., standing beside my bed
His message to me was that I would face rejection and pain, but not to fear, because he would protect me and guide me. I new that I had been chosen and I felt perfect peace, joy and comfort. I’ve hung onto that moment for years. Occasionally the memory of that moment has even spared my life.
I was 23 years old before I told anyone a
bout that incident. I told my sister. She responded by saying, “I know, I was on the bottom bunk.”
Later the same year a local Baptist church was sending out buses to take kids to church on Sundays. I was allowed to go about 4 different times. I made the public acknowledgement of Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior on one of those trips. It was the first time I heard about Jesus. I was absolutely terrified to go up to the alter call. I cried hysterically. He gave me peace as soon as I did.
I was officially chosen and planted in the soil to grow. To find out more of my story… Here is my book.
