The Story of James… Angel or a Man?

The Story of James… Angel or a Man?

I was still new to hearing the Lord speak and to going on, what we call missions for Him, when He tells us He has something for us to do for Him.

My roommate, best friend and sister in Christ Pat and I had woken up that morning and felt very strongly God had a mission to send us on that day (this was my first time doing this). We did not know where He wanted us to go but knew He would lead us.

We loaded ourselves into the car and headed out on the road. I was driving and Pat my sister in Christ was a passenger. I felt Him pulling us toward the interstate and as we got to I-75 I knew to turn north so we did.

We talked about the Lord on the whole trip, which we usually do. We always have a blessed time on our road trips but especially if the are guided and given to us by the Lord. We have awesome fellowship, we either are singing or talking about the Lord in some way or another.

Like I said, we had no idea where He was taking us but we knew to keep going north and we eventually ended up in Georgia. We have been to a place called Lake Park before but have never driven past there. As we came up to Lake Park, we knew we must keep going.

We eventually came to a town and I stopped to fill the gas tank up and I told Pat, maybe we passed it, where He was guiding us to go. So I headed back south. Pat said no, she didn’t think we had, so I pulled off the next exit and as I we were talking about it, she looked and on a sign that was very close to us, that went to the on ramp to go north, sat a dove. We knew then to keep driving.

You will never guess the name of the town we came up to and knew immediately that was our destination.

As we drove and came sorta around a bend there was a big green sign with the name of the town on it, the name, “Omega.”

We looked at each other and knew immediately this is where He was leading us. The thing was we could see there was only one tourist type place there as we pulled off the interstate.

As we turned off the off ramp we both saw a man sitting on the side of the road just before the driveway to the store.

We drove past the man and pulled up to the store, all they sold there were sweets, peanuts and etc. So we grab a few things and headed back out.

We went passed the man, then made a u-turn pulling up beside him. We told him we had something for him and also blessed him with what the Lord said to do.

Pat asked him his name and he said it was James. We told him the Lord lead us here to meet him and she asked if we could pray for him. He said yes, without hesitating.

I will never forget his eyes. I saw something in them, to this day, that still has me wondering about who he really was.

We then made another u-turn and headed to the on ramp to go back south. We both were so stirred from the encounter that we never thought to look back to see if he was still there. To this day, we don’t know if he was a real person or an angel.

We have had other missions the Lord has sent us on but this being my first time on doing something like that, about being obedient to Him when He tells us, leads us, to do something for Him. It will be one I will never forget.

It really doesn’t matter, if he was a man or an angel. Although there is a little bit inside both of us that would like to know, maybe we will find out when we get to heaven. The main thing was we were obedient and I believe the Lord was pleased.

She went through much. Tears flowed as a child and tears flowed as an adult.

On 7/16/2017 I was blessed with a vision.

I saw a horse and this horse came toward me, it was blond color with a dark mane and tail and on this horse were two kids. The horse stopped, then turned, going in a small circle three times, then they took off riding away from me.

As I watched, what were two kids on a horse, turned into a woman on the horse, who was dressed in a long flowing wedding gown. It was flowing way past the horse. Then I heard “The spirit is set free.”

Then I was given these words….

“She went through much.

Tears flowed as a child.

Tears flowed as an adult.

She felt pain as a child.

She felt pain as an adult.

The things she saw, the things she went through

would bring the strongest person to their knees

praying for mercy for her please.

Her spirit is free now.

Free from the tears, free from the pain.

Her spirit is free now from everything.

She is in heaven now with her loving King (Jesus).

He has broken the chains that once held her down here on earth.

Oh yes, her spirit is free now!”


When we place our life before God…

Romans 12:1-3 Place Your Life Before God.

So here’s what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him. Don’t become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You’ll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you. I’m speaking to you out of deep gratitude for all that God has given me, and especially as I have responsibilities in relation to you. Living then, as every one of you does, in pure grace, it’s important that you not misinterpret yourselves as people who are bringing this goodness to God. No, God brings it all to you. The only accurate way to understand ourselves is by what God is and by what he does for us, not by what we are and what we do for him.

She is holding it now with her two aged hands…

Her Bible written by me J.L. Russell………..

She had her Bible with her where ever she went, in church, a store or just sitting on a bench.

bible torn2

Its pages were worn and tattered and torn, there were many things written on the pages as she read Gods word.

bible 3

Most of the pages had turn dark from age; you see she had this book from a very young age. No matter where she went her Bible went with her each day.

She is holding it now with her two aged hands, inside her casket; it’s fitting for her to have it with her as they lowered her into her grave.

And this is what she heard Jesus say after she took her last breath….

My child, I watched you through the years and no matter what happen you kept me close to your heart, now come into heaven and feel my love, because it’s time we meet face to face.

May the rivers of living water flow through each of us…

Isaiah 58:10-11 If you pour yourself out for the hungry and satisfy the desire of the afflicted, then shall your light rise in the darkness and your gloom be as the noonday. And the Lord will guide you continually and satisfy your desire in scorched places and make your bones strong; and you shall be like a watered garden, like a spring of water, whose waters do not fail.

Help feed those who are hungry for His word. Speak about the Lord often, let others see Him through you and watch as the Lord touches and changes their life and remember to always give Him the glory for it, for we are just a vessel being used to help spread His word and love while we are upon this earth.

He is the one who looks at us and sees what we are meant to be, more than just a beautiful mess…

1 Corinthians 29:11 Yours, O Lord, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the victory and the majesty, for all that is in the heavens and in the earth is yours. Yours is the kingdom, O Lord and you are exalted as head above all.

Lift your heads up children of God and hand everything to the Lord, then watch as He molds, builds and magnifies you!

Let your strongholds become your testimony!

Declare today that every stronghold in your life will be destroyed in Jesus mighty name! Then watch as your strongholds become your testimony!
