This incredible story is from one of our Spirit Lifestyle Coaches and it will blow your mind:
Go buy some rice!
“One day I was singing and praying in my room, I had a really good time in the Lord. I came out of the prayer feeling like I needed to go to the supermarket to buy rice. I said to myself, “why do I need to do that? I have plenty of rice” Anyway I felt this urge to go. So I got my three youngest children together and went. For some reason that day was so peaceful. My children and I went and took the Bus to the supermarket.
On the way, the bus driver stopped and pulled over to the side, left the bus and went outside and kept going in and out of the bus. After 10 minutes or so I started to get frustrated because he was taking so long. I managed to shout and asked the bus driver why it was taking so long? There were people in the bus but they didn’t seem to care. The driver shouted back and said there’s a man on the ground dead, he’s been trying to wake him up. I said, “What!? call 911!”
So I pulled out my phone and called 911 and told them someone died on the side of the road. I took my kids and told them to hold on to each other’s hands then made my way outside of the bus to see what was going on.
I tell you the truth by the time my feet hit the ground, I began floating as if the ground was carrying me. I told my kids to stand by sidewalk and wait for me. I walked toward the man on the ground. Sure enough the man was laid flat on the ground lifeless. At this point the bus driver got on the bus and drove away on the opposite side exactly across from us, while everyone on the bus was watching. I walked toward the man and I started shouting, “wake up! Wake up! Wake up! Sir wake up!!!” I didn’t know scriptures, I didn’t know how to pray. I never read scriptures on Jesus waking up the dead, I didn’t even know at the time HE did that. I was very new in Christ. I had to listen to the stories in the Bible and I would memorize the stories and then say the scriptures like that. It took me a while, but at that time I didn’t have any scriptures in my heart.
I moved his lifeless body
I sat on the ground next to the man, I remembered feeling like I wanted this man to live more than anything. I had this overwhelming feeling of compassion toward him and wanted him to be ok. So I pulled his body over to me on my lap and I wrapped my arms around him like a baby. His head felt wet, his hair was sticking to his wet head, his skin felt weird like mushy and skin looked very pale, he had no color. I felt so bad for him. So I held him closed to my heart and just held him. At that point, you could hear a pin drop, everything to me went silent, there’s was no sound, no noise.
I somehow looked up and saw this other man in a white car, he pulled over on the wrong side of the road, he had his hands over his head looking toward me, he began pacing back and forth. All this was happening with no sound.
Going to God
I remember fazing out and looking toward the sky and began talking to God, I remembered being in this place, there was someone or something on a throne sitting as big as my eyes can see, almost like looking at a shadow; a small person looking up at this great being talking.
I said, “God this man is in trouble, I need your help to wake him up!” I began telling God where I am, what was going on, and telling HIM about the situation. I kept saying, “God wake him up, Wake him up, wake him up!”
At some point, somehow I must have carried the man in the spirit with me because I saw him in my arms while I was talking to God. I was such a baby and didn’t know what I was doing but I was full of compassion and I wanted things to turn around. While I was talking to God, I forgot I was even part this world almost, I even forgot there was a lifeless man on my arm. While talking I felt someone came standing on the side of me, someone I could not see.
Back in the natural realm
I guess at this point I must have come back to the natural realm, I felt a hand rubbed against mine and placed his hand under my hands under the man shoulders and lifted and stood the man up like a stick. His body looked stiff. It was so strange to me because I thought, “how is the man standing up straight up way like that?” It seemed like the moment the man was placed up on his feet, He woke up!
My God!!! Hallelujah! He woke up! he started looking around in confusion of where he was, he looked at me, like who are you? I walked up toward the man and I stood up to his chest. The man’s skin was full of color, his skin was completely dried, his hair was dry like someone blow dried it, beautiful blondish brown hair, beautiful man. I think his eyes were brown. He was wearing a white tee-shirt and khaki short pants. He was tall. I stood in-front of him and said, “You died, and I was talking to God and He woke you up”.
He said “what?” I said, “you died and I was talking to God and he woke you up!” and he again said, “what!” I repeated myself again and he seemed to understand me. At this point the man put his hands over his head and began praying. He dropped to knees while praying.
I looked around and noticed the bus driver was still there, police cars started coming in, Fire trucks, Ambulance, it became chaotic! Sounds everywhere! I remember saying to myself, “now they came, the man is alive! they will never know if anything ever happened to him.”
I walked away from the man while he was still praying on the ground. When I got to the bus, everyone’s eyes were on me, I remembered feeling strange because I had nothing to do with it. The bus driver said, “you are a nice lady”.
I said to him “there’s nothing nice about me, thank God I was here to pray for the man and God woke him up! Praise God!” I praise God because this started the fire in me to see God do more. Miracles started to happen whenever I prayed for people.
Praying for the dead is simple, I went to the Lord with my heart full of the Spirit that’s all I had, and simply asked God to wake him up! And HE did!
In the Bible, Jesus simply called them to wake up, and they obeyed the voice of God and woke up! I hope this will help someone!
Here’s a few scriptures: “Then Jesus shouted, “Lazarus, come out!””
John 11:43 NLT. “Holding her hand, he said to her, “Talitha koum,” which means “Little girl, get up!”” Mark 5:41 NLT. “Then he walked over to the coffin and touched it, and the bearers stopped. “Young man,” he said, “I tell you, get up.”” Luke 7:14 NLT” – Guerlande, Spirit Lifestyle Coach, California.
Message from Aliss
Wow, what an amazing true story. The gospel is simple. Jesus tells us to demonstrate that the Kingdom of God is here and to reveal His love and power in this way. Even if you’re stuck at home right now, why not pick up the phone or arrange a video call with someone who needs an encounter with Jesus, and demonstrate His love and power to them as you release Heaven on earth. And if you’d like to learn more and be part of a community who will cheer you on and provide a safe place for you to practice these things, consider being trained and mentored by us and make a difference in 2021. It’s time to know who you really are.
