Experiencing the Glory of God
A Glorious Trinity Manifestation in the Heavens Above Us
by Rev. John Hamel

I have experienced many remarkable, supernatural events in my life since the time I was just a little boy. I was approximately seven years old when I experienced my first vision of God revealing a future event to me. 

Since having been converted to Christ over thirty years ago, I have had many angelic visitations and multiple visitations of the Lord Jesus Christ.  

At the time of my conversion, I was slain in the Spirit for three days in my Massachusetts living room. On the fourth day, the Lord Jesus Christ personally appeared to me and commissioned me to preach the Gospel as a Prophet of God. 

Many times I have seen unnaturally bright stars appear directly before me, stopping me in my tracks.  I knew these were angelic manifestations.  I have seen many other signs and wonders in the Heavens and upon the Earth. 

My wife and I together have walked past individuals, literal strangers to us, only to have the demons in them cry out for us to leave them alone and to not talk to them. 

One morning we walked into a restaurant and the demons in a man, a man whom we did not know and who did not know us, began to cry out for everyone in the restaurant to hear. 

He frantically paced back and forth proclaiming that I was a Prophet of God who was "invading" his "territory." 

The demon-oppressed man then fled from the restaurant and we never saw him again. 

During dramatic events such as these, I am reminded of the demons who would cry out in the presence of Jesus, "What have I to do with thee, Jesus, Thou Son of the Most High God?" (Luke 8:28) 

Demons would also cry out in the presence of the Christ, "I know Thee, Who Thou art, Thou Holy One of God!" (Luke 4:34)

When the Apostle Paul began his missionary work in Philippi a spirit of divination, which was possessing a young woman, recognized immediately who Paul and Silas were. The spirit cried out, "These men are servants of the Most High God, which show unto us the way of salvation." (Acts 16:17) 

On many occasions we have seen tumors and growths literally disappear from babies in the womb to full-grown adults. We have witnessed hearing and vision supernaturally restored. 

We have seen individuals set free from addictions - sexual, substance and otherwise.  

We have cast evil spirits out of both people and animals with tremendous, supernatural change resulting in them. 

We have prayed for so many, watching them leave with relieved minds and happy hearts as the result of a benevolent God answering their prayers.  

I have personally seen a young man raised from the dead as a direct result of the combined Power Gifts coming upon me - the Gift of Faith, the Gifts of Healings and the Working of Miracles

Many times I have been caught up in trances during prayer.  During those times Jesus has either given me personal direction for my life and Ministry, or shown me exactly how He wanted me to conduct upcoming services and what the supernatural results of my obedience would be in those services. 

Whenever I have walked out in a Church service what Jesus first showed me in a trance, He has never let me down and the supernatural has always occurred as promised. 

I have heard both the still small voice and the authoritative voice of Almighty God on very many occasions, rebuking, commending, teaching and guiding me.

There are many other remarkable things I have experienced that would be of singular interest to record, though time and space permit us to mention just these few. 

However, one of the most remarkable, if not the most remarkable, dramatic and spectacular Glory event to date, at least in my estimation, took place in the fall of 2005 while my wife, Barbara, and I were in northern Vermont.  

An Emerald Green Light Approaches in the Southern Sky

Burlington, Vermont is located in the Champlain Valley on the eastern shore of Lake Champlain, just minutes from the Canadian border.  

The Green Mountains of Vermont rise to the east of the valley and the Adirondack Mountains of New York rise to the west.  

At night, the city of Burlington reflects on Lake Champlain like a diamond. 

It was dusk and we had just pulled into the parking lot of the Burlington Sheraton Hotel.

As I stepped out of the automobile, for some reason I looked far off into the southern sky. As I did so, I noticed what appeared to be a small emerald green light approaching just above the horizon. 

My first impression was that it was an approaching aircraft as the Burlington International Airport was just three miles to the east of us. Being very familiar with that airport, as well as the entire Champlain Valley, I suddenly realized this light was not coming towards us in any of the approved approach patterns for landing at the Burlington airport. 

That both caught and held my attention as I immediately directed my wife's attention to it. 

As I continued to focus on the slowly approaching emerald green light, I began to notice it was not only one green light but rather there were three emerald green lights grouped very closely together. The one in the middle was larger than the other two. 

I am not a pilot, although I was once a student pilot, but I am still an avid observer of aircraft.  I could think of no aircraft, parachute, dirigible, balloon, fixed wing or rotor-craft, that displayed any such triple green light configuration.

I must say here that there are green lights and there are red lights with which we are all acquainted. But never before, or since, have I ever seen emerald green lights that came anywhere near this brilliant color in the sky. 

What started out as a tiny emerald green speck of light, just above the southern horizon, was now growing larger and larger and separating into three separate emerald green lights. 

I waited for the sound of either a gas burner, jet thrust, propellers or rotors, but there was none. 

The triple light configuration was now coming directly towards us and was no more than three to four hundred feet above the ground. 

As we continued to watch it closely, it took on even greater clarity, shape and form. 

I continued to ask my wife, "Are you still seeing what I am seeing?" 

I would describe in great detail what I was seeing. She assured me she was seeing the same emerald green light as it slowly approached, now separating into three separate emerald green lights and coming directly towards us.

Normally when I have a vision or trance or any other type of Divinely-granted visitation from the Lord, I alone see it.  But this time, even as with the angels later appearing to us at Dowse's Beach on Cape Cod, Massachusetts, Barbara was being allowed to see into the realm of the Spirit right along with me.

Three Brilliant Emerald Green Lights Encased in a Lighter Glow

The three emerald green lights were stunningly beautiful, brilliant and unearthly. I was reminded of when the Apostle Paul was caught up into Paradise. When he returned to this world he said he heard things there that were "not lawful for a man to utter."

"How that he was caught up into Paradise, and heard unspeakable words, which it is not lawful for a man to utter." (2 Corinthians 12:4)

When Paul said "not lawful for a man to utter" he was expressing that he heard, and no doubt saw, things that defied the laws of nature, human reason and understanding. Certainly, what Barbara and I were seeing defied the laws of nature and human understanding.  

As the triple light configuration came closer, Barbara and I both noticed there was an aura of lighter green totally surrounding the three distinctly separate emerald green lights. 

It appeared as if the three distinct lights were encased within a transparent lighter green envelope. This reminded me of earlier circus days when you could purchase one balloon blown up inside of another transparent balloon.  

Only in this case, it was similar to three emerald green balloons inside of one much lighter, transparent, oblong green balloon.

As the emerald green light configuration came closer still, it became very clear that the brilliant light in the center was indeed much larger than the ones to its left and right. Even the outer lighter green envelope was bigger where it went over and above the center light.

As I observed the three lights contained in one light, my mind went immediately to the Holy Trinity. I said so to my wife. 

We were both convinced that this was another peculiar, yet spectacular, undeniable manifestation of not only the Glory of God and the presence of God, but it was an actual visual manifestation of the Holy Trinity.

I am persuaded that no less than twenty minutes had passed from the time the green speck of light appeared on the horizon until it finally arrived directly above us at an altitude of three to four hundred feet. This would be comparable to the height of a thirty to forty story building. 

We both continued to stare at the configuration in absolute fascination, aware that we were experiencing not only the presence of God, but an actual manifestation of the Holy Trinity. 

At this point, Barbara sat back down in the vehicle, tired from intensely focusing on the three emerald lights and their very slow approach.

I remained outside of the vehicle, now looking straight up as the magnificent emerald green Trinity hovered directly above my head, no more than thirty to forty stories directly above us.

A Spectacular Burst of Light & Glory

As I stared in fascination at the glorious light configuration, suddenly the three glorious, dazzling emerald green lights and the lighter outer envelope encasing them all burst as children's soap bubbles blown from a wand would burst.  

There was a literal, silent explosion of long, twisting emerald green wisps and ribbons. 

This explosion of emerald green light reminded me of the aurora borealis, "Northern Lights," only this was much, much more spectacular. 

The different hues of supernatural emerald green shimmered gloriously, unlike anything I had ever seen before in all of my life. 

Truly, this was "unlawful to utter." 

This brilliant, living display of the Glory of the Trinity's presence would make the Northern Lights appear to be dull and lifeless. 

I am confident that these were the various, brilliant emerald green hues witnessed by the Apostle John as he stood in a trance before the emerald green rainbow Throne of Almighty God in Heaven.

"After this I looked, and behold, a door was opened in Heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said come up hither, and I will show thee things which must be hereafter. And immediately I was in the Spirit (a trance): and behold a Throne was set in Heaven and One sat on the Throne. And He that sat was to look upon like a jasper and a sardine stone: and there was a rainbow round about the Throne in sight like unto an emerald." (Revelation 4:1-3)

I continued to watch as the dazzling, brilliant hues of the emerald green Glory wisps and ribbons hovered, twisting and turning directly over our heads.

I have only seen this dazzling, supernatural, liquid-like emerald green Glory in manifestation one other time since this event.

The Glorious Manifestation Ascended Towards Heaven

This magnificent Glory burst demonstration then began to ascend, rising up and up towards the Heavens. 

I thought it might soon disappear as it went higher and higher into the Heavenlies. Rising and rising, the beautiful rainbow hues of green stayed directly above me as I watched intently.  

I stood utterly amazed by the fact that although this glorious manifestation continued to reach incredible heights, it remained continually visible to me. 

It was nothing short of supernatural that the higher it rose, the more visible it remained.

Mile upon mile upon mile the Glory explosion rose into the Heavens. 

If this had been a natural manifestation, it would have reached the vanishing point within minutes. But this glorious light may easily have reached a height of hundreds of miles, all the while remaining clearly visible to my eyes. 

This was not a natural manifestation of natural light. I was seeing into the Spirit realm and this manifestation was not limited or confined in any way to the laws of nature.  I was seeing into another world.  

This was nothing less than a glorious manifestation of the Holy Trinity as once again I was experiencing, my wife along with me, a Divinely-granted visitation from Heaven.

Finally, after twenty minutes or more of looking straight up with my head tilted back, I simply could look no longer. I knew in my heart that this manifestation of the Glory would remain visible to me for as long as I chose to observe it.  

However, I was exhausted physically from the twenty plus minutes we watched the three lights approach, followed by at least another twenty minutes of looking straight up as the supernatural manifestation ascended back up into the Heavenlies.

We retired that evening never looking up at the emerald green Glory again. 

However, we fully realized Almighty God had ordained yet another Divinely-granted visitation.  

Once again I was being allowed to see into the realm of the spirit, this time my wife along with me. 

Once again Holy God had confirmed His calling upon my life, and upon our lives, as the brilliant emerald green Glory of the Trinity approached, hovered, burst and ascended directly above us.

I also believe that once again Holy God was confirming what He had shown me eighteen months earlier - a great Spiritual Awakening was coming to America beginning in the Northeastern United States and moving on to the nations of the world.

We returned to finish the course God has given us, knowing that the Lord will keep us from every evil work and preserve us unto His Heavenly Kingdom.

"So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, He was received up into Heaven, and sat on the right hand of God. And they went forth, and preached everywhere, the Lord working with them, and confirming the Word with signs following. Amen." (Mark 16:19-20)  

Below is a rendition of the triple light configuration encased in the transparent, lighter green Glory. This portrays the design and configuration only. There is simply no way to display here the brilliant, Heavenly, liquid-like emerald green Glory of God as it appeared to us.
