the Glory Testimony 12
Up in the Glory. Suicide Averted & Prosperity Manifested
Pastor John Hamel
following is an excerpt from the JHM
article "The Word of Knowledge."
was once praying about an upcoming five-day Miracle Healing Revival I had agreed to conduct
in Virginia. It was approximately three o'clock in the morning. The Holy
Spirit often awakens me at this time to pray
in the Spirit.
Suddenly, I was caught up in the Spirit even as the
Apostle John was caught up in the Spirit on
the Lord's Day. (Revelation 1:10-11) I found myself in a trance like
Peter went into a trance (Acts 10:5-12) and like Paul went into a trance.
In the trance I realized I was standing in the sanctuary of the
in which I was to conduct the revival meetings. I had never been there
before. I was standing in the pulpit looking out over hundreds of
people in attendance.
As I looked to my left, I
noticed an angled aisle. I looked up the burgundy-carpeted aisle and noticed a woman sitting in the aisle seat exactly two
rows from the back wall. She was in her late forties or early fifties.
She had brown hair with bangs. She was
wearing a red, ribbed-turtleneck sweater, a light jacket and either a denim skirt or jeans.
I looked at her sitting there, I heard the voice of the Lord speak from
behind me, even as John the Apostle heard the voice of the Lord speak from
The Lord said, "She is struggling and suffering terribly concerning
her finances. Tell her I said, 'It's over.'"
staring at her, pondering what the Lord had just revealed to me. Just as suddenly
as I went into the Spirit, I
came out of the Spirit and was back in my place of prayer.
that morning I shared the details of the vision with my wife. I told her, "When we
arrive at the church she will be sitting where the Lord showed me she will
be sitting. She will be wearing what the Lord showed me she will be wearing.
I am going to call her out and tell her what the Lord told me to tell
her. He will take on my obedience and confirm it to her. Somehow she will
experience a miracle in her finances."
later we arrived at the Church in Virginia and it was exactly as I had seen in the trance,
right down to the angled aisle and the burgundy carpeting on the
As the service was beginning my wife and I were standing in the
front row. I looked back and I saw the woman with the brown hair, red
ribbed-turtleneck, light jacket and denim skirt.
She was seated on the angled aisle,
two rows from the back and in
the very seat which the Lord had shown me in the trance.
"There she is Lord, just like You showed me. I am going to obey You. I
am going to call her out as You told me and You will confirm the
stepped into the pulpit I immediately called her out. I asked her if
she knew me. She answered, "No, not personally. Although I did
know you were coming."
I asked if we had
ever spoken or even met before. She answered, "No."
asked if she had been struggling financially. She and her husband both
publicly confirmed that she had been so burdened by financial trouble that she was
actually physically sick.
I told her, "The Lord showed you to me
in a vision. He told me to tell you that
your financial struggles are over. He said to tell you, 'It's over.'" Her husband
soon burst into
tears and cried uncontrollably.
both later came to me individually asking if I knew how the Lord was going to bring
the word to pass. I told them that I did not know but that He would do
it in a way that would bring great glory to Himself. I reminded
them that they didn't have to try to figure anything out, even as Moses
didn't have to try to figure out how he was going to deliver Israel from
I said, "Moses didn't have to figure a thing out. If he
tried to do so Moses would have messed it all up. He
just had to trust God to take him through the Exodus supernaturally, one
step at a time. You
don't have to figure anything out either. If you try to do so you'll
mess it all up. Trust the Lord to take you
through this supernaturally, one step at a time. Somehow He is going to supernaturally
reverse your financial situation and glorify Himself in it.
"All I can tell
you is I know what I saw in a vision before coming here. Even as the
vision has proved out here today, the fulfillment of the vision will prove
out according to God's plan and purpose."
spoke to the woman's husband on the telephone about two months after I had
called her out during the service to give her that Word of Knowledge. He
called to relay the following. "At the time of you calling her
out, my wife was getting her house in order because she was planning her own
suicide. That is how bad things were concerning our finances.
"I want to thank you for obeying God,
standing up there and giving her that
word. I don't know what I would do without her had she taken her life. Once you gave
her that word, everything changed in our lives. Everything. Our marriage relationship
was under tremendous pressure but that has changed as well. We are
free to love one another again. We have
peace in our home again. Everything has changed for the good. We were able to believe God again and to just
trust Him as Moses trusted Him like you said.
"Less than two weeks after you called
her out from the pulpit and gave her that word from the Lord, someone who
knew nothing at all of our situation gave
her (a very substantial amount of money). Our whole lives have changed as of that word being
given. Thank you, Pastor, thank you. I don't know how I could have lived
I reminded him that all the glory for what occurred
belonged to the Lord, not to me, although I did indeed understand his
hanging up he said, "Oh, yes, Pastor, by the way. My wife wanted
me to tell you that as she was preparing her clothes for the service the day
you gave her that word, she had a black turtleneck laid out to wear. At the
last minute she said to me, 'I think I need to wear my red turtleneck
sweater and not my black one today.' I thought you might find that
interesting. It really adds to the testimony, doesn't it?"
man and his wife were greatly exhorted, edified and comforted by both the
Word of Knowledge which the Lord had given me for them in a glorious trance, as well as the supernatural fulfillment
of the Word of Knowledge.
