Spirit travel 500 miles to pray for my buddy Paul

Stories to Inspire

Jesus said there was an easy way to access the Heavenlies… through Him!   He said. “Use Me, the Door, to access Heaven.” 

“I am the door; if anyone enters through Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture.” – Jn 10:9

I know, we normally use this verse as a ‘salvation verse’ – “In order to get saved you have to come through Jesus.”  But, if salvation is the only application for this verse, what do we do with the last phrase – “and will go in and out and find pasture?”  Surely we’re not implying getting saved, unsaved and resaved, are we?  Rather, I believe Jesus just gave us a blueprint verse for how to live ‘above the line in the Heavenlies.

You see, we have great theology about the Heavenlies… but we have very little personal experience in the Heavenlies.  We know these familiar verses by heart.

“and raised us up with Him, and seated us with Him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus…” – Eph 2:6

“Therefore, since you have been raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God.  Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.  For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God…” – Col 3:1-3

As we follow Jesus’ invitation to use Him as the Door, the frontiers of our rich inheritance exponentially get opened up to us.  Yay, we can experience more than a mere earthling experience!  We are citizens of Heaven and the larger part of our being, is already CURRENTLY there.  Jesus invites us to access the Heavenlies, explore it, become familiar with it and begin to possess our inheritance.  So, for almost two years I’ve been facilitating hundreds of people ‘into Jesus’… and thus into the Heavenlies.  And the very personal and powerful heart encounter stories melt my heart nearly every time. 

This pic says it perfectly!!!!

Traveling in the Spirit is just one of the many frontiers available to us after we access the Heavens.  And it’s a fun one.  We’re not talking about some kind of astral projection or anything new age.  We’re talking about the Biblical kind… the kind that Paul, Philip, Jesus, Elijah, John, etc, experienced.  Obviously, we require ourselves to only follow Holy Spirit’s lead in these matters.

Jesus cautioned us:

“No one comes to the Father but by Me.” – Jn 14:6

“Truly, truly, I say to you, he who does not enter by the door into the fold of the sheep, but climbs up some other way, he is a thief and a robber.” – Jn 10:1

With that securely etched in our minds and hearts, let’s full of faith, enter another part of our ‘Promised Land’.  Got it!  Now, the following is one of my personal experiences.

Spirit travel 500 miles to pray for my buddy Paul

Setup: I had been reading about, praying into and exercising in traveling in the Spirit for some time.  Obviously, it’s in the Bible.  And I’d already had several experiences.

Prompted, I emailed my friends Paul & Donna, in WI to see how they were doing.  She text back apprising me of Paul’s health.  What I didn’t know was that his infected replacement heart valve had caused severe sepsis in his body.  He’d been on 4 strong antibiotics, lost 50 pounds and been under quarantined medical care for 6 weeks.  She finished by saying, “Thank you for praying. Paul is quite discouraged today. Maybe you can go visit him in room 51.”

I thought, “Hmmm, she probably thinks that I’m in WI.”  So I said, “I wish I could.  I’m in Kansas City.  Please give him my love and care!!!”  She replied, “Haha I meant in the Spirit 😊.”  Finding it hard to believe that I didn’t ‘pick up’ on this, I responded, “I should have caught that!!!!  Sorry, I will do that right now!!!”  My sense was that this was Holy Spirit’s way of prompting me to activate into my new frontier.

I immediately went up to my bedroom, stilled my mind, activated my golden (Holy Spirit inspired) imagination and ‘took off’.  Within seconds I ‘flew’ 500 miles to WI, came down to the medical facility, in the front door, down the hallway, into Rm 51, placed my hand over Paul’s heart and made a few declarations over him.  All of that came from my own initiation and activation of my mind into a position that I felt Holy Spirit had prompted me to do.

But I did not initiate what happened next!  A bright white Light flooded Paul’s room.  It was the very white ‘solid’ Light… so ‘thick’ you couldn’t see through it.  It would be like standing immersed in a large vat of white milk.  Goosebumps ran down my arm, literally.  But then I wondered what I supposed to do with the light.  But before I could even fully think that question, I knew what to do… I was supposed to take all the Light and impart it into his body through my arm and hand.  But before I could even think that thought in my mind, it happened!  And then I felt another wave of goosebumps down my arm.

Surprised, I said to myself, “Wow, I think something just happened!”  (O man of faith that I am 😊)  So I made a few more declarations over Paul and ‘backed out’ of the experience.  I then text Donna and told her that I had visited and prayed for Paul.

A couple days later I text Donna to ask about Paul.  She replied, “After you prayed for him he had a breakthrough and decided to take one day at a time and not worry about the future.  He has been doing much better emotionally since then.  Thank you.”

A couple weeks later Paul was back home.  I texted and asked if he’d like to talk on the phone… and soon he was telling me his story.  I asked him if I could tell him my side of the story.  And so I told him what I’ve just told you.

He was slow to respond and said, “That really touches my heart.  The hardest part wasn’t even the physical ordeal, it was that from the time that I was under medical care, I couldn’t hear the voice of God.  And you know how much I love to hear His voice… and that I even teach about how to hear His voice.  But Donna said you called… and the next day I began to hear again.  I’m home now, off all meds and gaining my strength back.”

About a month later, I called Paul again.  He was still gaining his strength back and steadily getting better.  And as you might imagine, our conversations are getting more Heavenly each time we connect.

Thank our wonderful God for miracles of several different kinds.

      Doesn’t your heart almost leap when we find that there is, MORE ?? Mine does. O, I want to explore and possess my inheritance. It is not OK to say it’s ‘out there’… and not apprehend it.

      Paul said, “Not that I have already obtained, or am already made perfect: but I press on, if so be that I may apprehend that for which also I was apprehended by Christ Jesus.” Phil 3:12

      Fun times ahead. “We are well able to go up and take the country!”
