Every one of us is able to recall a time when we experienced a life-transforming encounter with Jesus. We could never forget that place of the overwhelming presence of His glory. I believe that some of us are going to experience extraordinary "face to face" encounters with Jesus in the days ahead.
Several years ago I had a dream. In this dream I began walking down a long corridor. There were doors on each side of the hallway. I opened one door to the room on my right and it was a hospital room. I then continued walking and opened a door on my left that appeared to be a guest room. As I continued walking I heard singing that sounded like a choir but I knew that it was angels. At this point I knew that I was dreaming and I thought to myself "If I listen, I will be able to hear the angels singing". I walked to the next door and sat down on the floor listening to the angelic voices singing "Worthy is the Lamb."
The presence of God was so intense. I looked up and saw Jesus. There was a line of people waiting to go up to him to give him a hug and a kiss. I watched as each one had their turn. After the last person walked away, Jesus began to walk in my direction. I jumped up and said to him "Wait a minute, you also have to give me a hug and a kiss". As he hugged me, and then gave me a kiss, his anointing flowed into my body. I wouldn't let him go and I kept saying: "Oh my God, I don't believe it." He had a big smile and laughed as His fiery presence radiated through me. As I woke up from the dream, that same anointing was upon me. It was so weighty and I knew that it was an impartation.
Within the next few weeks every time I shared that dream with people, that same anointing was present. I heard several confirmations of the Shulamite woman in Song of Solomon chapter three. She was in great distress as she searched for her love and couldn't find him. She got up from her bed, and went out into the streets looking for him. She went up to the watchman asking "Have you seen the one that my heart loves?" When she found her love, she held him and would not let him go.
The Holy Spirit is confirming this dream once again. Many of you are going to have visitations from Jesus in the next few months as you search for him with all your heart. The Lord is going to speak to you in dreams as well as face to face encounters. Many unbelievers will also come to know Jesus through personal encounters. Be encouraged and stay in expectation.
Song of Solomon 3:1-4 By night on my bed I sought the one I love; I sought him, but I did not find him. "I will rise now," I said, "And go about the city; in the streets and in the squares I will seek the one I love." I sought him, but I did not find him. The watchmen who go about the city found me; I said, "Have you seen the one I love?" Scarcely had I passed by them, when I found the one I love. I held him and would not let him go, until I had brought him to the house of my mother, and into the chamber of her who conceived me.
Song of Solomon 5:2 I sleep, but my heart is awake; It is the voice of my beloved! He knocks, saying, "Open for me, my sister, my love, My dove, my perfect one; For my head is covered with dew, My locks with the drops of the night."
