I wrote previously that I met Lord Jesus at a ferry berth.  He had a laptop computer and opened it up to do some work. I was reminded about several features:

  1. He tapped on the keyboard quickly and several screens came up simultaneously
  2. I could see that He had several pages (web pages open). However, there were no boxes at the upper right hand corner to allow any one to minimize, restore down and/or close these pages
  3. Furthermore, the pages were layered over each other and I could see about a 4mm bar at the top of each which indicated that each was a new page.
  4. I am not sure exactly how He did it, but He opened up a page with a picture of a Himself.  When He did so, I could see that this page  was surrounded by pictures from other pages.

Everything happened very quickly. The images were extremely lifelike and the colors real. I was reminded about this a few nights ago and asked to write about it.

Blessings!

Daniel referred to himself as Archangel Gabriel’s servant December 7, 2009

I wrote in the previous post that Prophet Daniel addressed Chief Prince Gabriel as “Lord”, using the Hebrew word ‘adown.  When used in reference to heavenly inhabitants, this noun addressed members of the God family. The Lord also drew to my attention that Daniel referred to himself as a servant:

O my lord, by the vision my sorrows are turned upon me, and I have retained no strength

For how can the servant of this my lord talk with this my lord? (Dan 10: 16, 17)

“Ebed (H 5650) is the word that Daniel used. It is found seven times in the Hebrew  and interestingly, Daniel is the only person who apparently used that word  (blueletterbible.org).  He used ‘ebed twice when asking the chief eunuch in Babylon to allow himself and his three companions to eat vegetables instead of the king’s meat.  The other references to ‘ebed (apart from Daniel 10) are found four other times in Daniel 9 where the Prophet referred in his intercessions to the ancient Prophets and Moses as servants of the Lord.

Now, it is clear that Daniel deliberately used the same word ‘ebed because he was acknowledging Chief Prince Gabriel’s status. Twin this with the usage of ‘adown and you will discover the secret.

Prophet Daniel used “adown” when he called Prince Gabriel Lord December 3, 2009

1. Introduction

I ended the previous post  by saying that  ’Adown is the Hebrew word that Daniel used in the text when referring to the Chief Prince Gabriel as “Lord”:

“then I opened  my mouth, and spake , and said unto him that stood before me, O my lord (‘adown) (Dan 10: 16)

For how can the servant of this my lord (‘adown)  talk with this my lord (‘adown)? (Dan 10: 17)

I was strengthened, and said, Let my lord (‘adown) speak; for thou hast strengthened me (Dan 10: 19)

Why did Daniel refer to Chief Prince Gabriel as Lord/‘adown?  Here is what I found  when I examined the usage of the word.  

2.  ‘Adown was used as a form of  respect when addressing other people in their various leadership roles. For example:

  • Sarah called Abraham her “Lord” (Gen 18: 12)
  • Lot used in when addressing the members of the God family who had entered Sodom, although he did not know who they were (Gen 19: 2, 8)
  • the children of  Heth used the term to address Abraham, recognizing him as a “mighty Prince” (Gen  23: 3-20).
  • the english word “master” is used for ‘adown when describing the interaction between Abraham and his servant (Gen 24: 9-14).
  • Rebekkah again used ‘adown when speaking to Abraham’ s servant as a form of respect (Gen 24: 18)
  • Jacob used it when addressing or referring to his brother Esau (Gen 32: 4,5,18)
  • Pothipar was referred to as Joseph’s lord (Gen 39: 3, 7, 16 etc)
  • Joshua referred to Moses as “my lord Moses” (Num 11: 28)
  • Rulers such as Pharoah and others were referred to as lord/’adown (Judges 3: 25, Judges 4: 18)

3. Humans used the word ‘adown to refer to  members of the God family, recognizing God as  Lord of lords, ruler of heaven and earth:

  • Prior to passing over Jordan, Joshua worshipped God as the Lord of all the earth. For example, he told Israel that, “the ark of the covenant of the Lord of all the earth passeth over before you into Jordan” (Johsua 3: 11, 13)
  • Joshua referred to the Captain of the host as “my lord” (Josh 5: 14). I ‘ve written before about this, showing that Joshua knew that he was visited by a member of the God family because he fell on his face and worshipped and was told to take off his shoes  since the place where he stood was holy.  This is similar to Moses’ experience in Ex 3. When the mantle is  passed on to another individual, the God family will reproduce in him or her the same kind of visitation that the forerunner experienced.
  • Gideon used ‘adown when referring to the angel of the Lord, who was really one of the members of the God family. Read the text carefully and you will see this (Judges 6: 11-14)
  • Nehemiah called God by the name ‘adown (Neh 8: 10)
  • When worshipping God, whose name alone is excellent in all the earth, David in Psalm 8, referred to God  as ‘adown  (Ps 8: 1, 9)
  • The psalmists referred to God as ‘adown in the Psalms when worshipping the great Lord of the earth (Ps 110: 1; 114: 7;  135: 5; 136: 3; 147:5)
  • Prophet Isaiah referred to God as ‘adown when extolling Him as the Lord, the Lord of hosts (Isa 1: 24;   3: 1;   10: 16;  10: 33;  19: 4;   37: 4; 51: 22)
  • It is important to note that when Prophet Isaiah referred to God as the Lord (adown), he twinned the term with Lord (Yĕhovah/H3068) for greater emphasis   (http://www.blueletterbible.org/lang/lexicon/lexicon.cfm?strongs=H113&t=KJV&page=11    http://www.blueletterbible.org/lang/lexicon/lexicon.cfm?Strongs=H3068&t=KJV)
  • Prophets Micah, Zechariah and Malachi  also referred to God as ‘adown  (Micah 4: 13; Zech 4: 14; Zech 6: 5; Mal 3: 1)

4. Conclusion

When used in reference to heavenly inhabitants, the term “Adown or Lord refers directly to GOD as the ruler of heaven and earth, His excellent name, Lord of hosts and to members of the God family.

Prophet Daniel called Archangel Gabriel “my Lord” December 2, 2009

1. Introduction

Chief Prince Gabriel appeared to the Prophet Daniel on the 3rd day following a 21 day fast.  Although Prophet Daniel did not refer to Him by name, I infer that the man who appeared in the vision Prince Gabriel.  Maybe the Prophet did not name Him because of the splendour and glory of His  outfit:

I looked up and saw a man dressed in linen clothing, with a belt of pure gold around his waist.

His body looked like a dazzling gem. From his face came flashes like lightning, and his eyes were like flaming torches. His arms and feet shone like polished bronze, and his voice was like the roaring of a vast multitude of people.

I, Daniel, am the only one who saw this vision. The men with me saw nothing, but they were suddenly terrified and ran away to hide.

So I was left there all alone to watch this amazing vision. My strength left me, my face grew deathly pale, and I felt very weak

When I heard him speak, I fainted and lay there with my face to the ground (Dan 10: 5-9).

2. There are similarities between this vision and others in which Chief Prince Gabriel had appeared to the Prophet Daniel:

  1. He appeared to Daniel in response to intensive confession, prayers and fasting.  In Dan 8:   ,  He appeared at the time of the evening oblation or sacrifice, which is symbolic of  confession, prayer and  worship in scripture. He also appeared to Zechariah at the time he offered sacrifices in the temple (Lk 1:             ). God responds to our sincere prayers, confession and worship.
  2. His presence was always so overwhelming that Prophet Daniel fell on his face to the ground.
  3. Chief Prince Gabriel, as usual,  lifted Daniel to his hands and knees, a position of worship in which he was less helpless.  In this position, they could look at each other directly,  a sign of friendship and communication.
  4. Chief Prince Gabriel was the one assigned to directly respond to Daniel’s prayer, just as at other times
  5. Chief Prince Gabriel always came to instruct Daniel in future events and their meanings (Dan 10: 12, 14)

It is rather amusing that the glory, power and visage of the heavenly visitor was so overwhelming  that the men around Daniel became fearful and fled, reminding me of Rev 20 :11 when Apostle John saw:

” a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.”

Apostle John also said that  the voice of the Lord Jesus sounded great, like a trumpet (Rev 1: 10).  Again, this Apostle fell down at the feet of the Lord Jesus like a dead man (Rev 1:  17).  No other heavenly inhabitants produced this kind of response in scripture.

3. Daniel called Chief Prince Gabriel “my Lord”:

While he was speaking to me, I looked down at the ground, unable to say a word.

Then the one who looked like a man  touched my lips, and I opened my mouth and began to speak. I said to the one standing in front of me, “I am terrified by the vision I have seen, my lord, and I am very weak. How can someone like me, your servant, talk to you, my lord? My strength is gone, and I can hardly breathe.”

Then the one who looked like a man touched me again, and I felt my strength returning. Don’t be afraid,” he said, “for you are deeply loved by God. Be at peace; take heart and be strong!” As he spoke these words, I suddenly felt stronger and said to him, “Now you may speak, my lord, for you have strengthened me.” (Dan 10: 15-19)

 ‘Adown is the Hebrew word that Daniel used in the text when referring to the Chief as “Lord”.  

4. Daniel referred to himself as a servant of the Lord Gabriel

More to come  on scriptural usage of the word adown!

She had an assignment to curse a Christian believer and sat across from her in the Library.  Suddenly,  she  found herself sliding down rainbows and bouncing on clouds with laughing angels. At the end of the game, she said to herself, “I didn’t know that God was so nice”.

She did not know that the believer had seen her and said, “Gabriel, please play with this witch”.

While I jotted the notes for the previous post, I was reminded of something that I had heard back in 1998/99 when living in Scotland. One night while sleeping, I heard the voice of a multitude of angels chanting:

“We love Michael

We love Michael

We love Michael…”

Although I heard the phrase repeated three times, I knew that I had heard part of a song to Chief Prince Michael. I had not thought about it for many years, but on earth let’s join the chant and say:

 “We love Michael

We love Michael

We love Michael…”

HAVE A GREAT DAY!

The day that Archangel Gabriel cried August 6, 2009

I was at church on Sunday 1st August. The song “Glory to the Lamb”  was being sung:

“Glory, Glory, glory to the Lamb

For You are glorious and worthy to be praised

Lamb upon the throne

Unto you we lift our voice in praise

Lamb upon the throne”.

While the song was being sung, I suddenly began to see and hear an event taking place in heaven.  Chief Prince Gabriel was crying. Crying in heaven! I heard Him saying:

Thank you Jesus for being so nice

You went down to the cross and died for sinners

Whenever they are bad you beg for mercy

Even when we plan to kill them.

Thank you Jesus.

After He said those words, I heard the voice of  the multitude of saints and angels repeating:

Thank you Jesus for being so nice

You went down on the cross and died for sinners

Jesus replied that it was hard, but He was glad that He did it. Blessings!

 

Archangel Gabriel helped that child July 12, 2009

In 2007 I had a vision in which I was told by Angel Gabriel that He was visiting my nephews to help them with their school work. Later in 2008, one of them became ill and missed school for weeks. I was deeply concerned and had been praying for him during that time of difficulty.  To our amazement, he placed top of his class at the end of that  term.

Do I believe God or what?!!!

The two men passed me as I sat looking out at the water, my method for relaxing at the end of a long day.  I waved to them and noticed that they sat on another bench at the end of  the walkway.  They stood up in unison as I approached them on my departure.  I heard, “walk behind us. This is Michael and Jesus”.” I smiled, but really wanted to walk quickly in order to get some exercise. “Walk behind us”, I heard them say. I obeyed and noticed to my amusement (believe it or not) that the shape of their feet (especially the calves) and their walking pattern were identical.

As I walked behind them, they spoke with me about the people of the nation in which I lived, the people with whom I worked and answered some questions that I had. I felt such a sense of  peace, joy and love.  As we approached the main city area, they slowed down and looked at the  water. There was a crab  just on the shore line. I said “hello” as I passed them and they replied. “Time for dinner”, said one of them.  I smiled and agreed.

They asked me to walk in front of them, then to sit as I approached a bench on the waterfront. This was the end of the journey.  After  I sat,  I looked backwards for them and realized that they were crossing the road, going in another direction. 

This encounter was such a blessing for me and I am writing about it as instructed. Have a great day!

Archangels Gabriel and Michael- brothers, not twins May 22, 2009

I saw them on Wednesday this week – two men about five feet nine inches, although one was just slightly shorter than the other. I was looking at them because of  the striking facial resemblance. As I looked  at the men, they walked away from me so that I was able to see them from the back for about five minutes.  I noted that they had the same shape in their shoulders and calves.

As I looked at them, I heard, “this is Gabriel and Michael”. I replied, “are you twins?” The answer was, “brothers, not twins”. I asked, “where is Jesus?”  They replied, “Jesus? Jesus is a big boy. He can take care of Himself”. They then walked out of my range of vision. LOL.
