Sometimes They Come Back

It was just a day or two after that initial encounter with whatever that “presence” was, that my wife once again called to me to come upstairs.

Just like the previous time, she was agitated. “It’s come back,” she said. I didn’t need to ask what she meant. This time I could sense it. Cold. Evil. It made me shudder. And there was a sense of fear starting to rise up in me. [ Read the full article … ]

Visiting the 700 Club

You wouldn’t think that making a trip to Virginia Beach would be all that much. It was really amazing that this simple trip was met with such resistance by the enemy.  [ Read the full article … ]

There’s Something Here

Returning home from that first visit to meet with Tom and his church, we began to discuss the visit and all that we had experienced. We also voiced the question,

“Wonder what’s next?”

It didn’t take long to get an answer. [ Read the full article … ]

Inner City Miracle

This is the story originally published by Dan Van Deen chronicling the events surrounding Tom’s ministry and how they were able to move from their dilapidated machine shop into their new building.

As you read through this, bear in mind that these events took place in 2003… [ Read the full article … ]

A Divine Appointment

About 10 days after coming home from the hospital, I went back to work.

I was still in a bit of a daze over the events that had taken place. I kept wondering, why in the world would Jesus show up – for me? And then, about 2 weeks later, He answered the question..  [ Read the full article … ]

A Walk In The Valley

Psalm 23: 4 –

“Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for Thou art with me; Thy rod and Thy staff they comfort me.”

On Saturday, July 2, 2005, we noticed that our next door neighbors were moving back into their house. They had rented it out for a few months, until the renter had gotten called to active military duty. Naturally, we offered to help them move back in.

We had just finished unloading the trailer, and I was out of breath… [ Read the full article … ]

Entering the Valley

As I look back upon these events, things now take on a meaning that escaped me at the time. For one thing, my spiritual defenses and armor were woefully inadequate. I had a lot to learn yet.

And the enemy knew it… [ Read the full article … ]

Lifting A Veil

A few people had indicated their desire for Bob to pray over them. As Bob went about the room, one couple told him about the woman’s problem with “night terrors.”

Both of them professed to be born-again Christians. The husband went on to describe that virtually every night he would be awakened by his wife’s screaming. She would usually be standing beside the bed screaming and trembling… [ Read the full article … ]

A Time Apart

I was out of work for the next seven months.

That time was a strange mixture, to put it mildly.

On almost a daily basis I would arise with a new resolve to take the time to get to know my God better. And something would come up that would keep me from it… [ Read the full article … ]

Things That Go Bump

As we were watching TV one evening, we heard a loud thump from the upstairs bedroom. Certain that one of the boxes stored in our spare bedroom had fallen, I went upstairs to check.

Nothing. No sign of anything out of place. Maybe it was the cat. No, the cat had been in the living room with us. Oh well….  [ Read the full article … ]
