In August 2006 in the middle of the night, roughly 3:00 am, while we still lived in the apartment, I woke up to some very loud Christian music. I wondered who was playing very loud, religious songs in the middle of the night. I rose up out of bed and looked for a boom box, but I did not find any.
I looked to my left and noticed that Nancy was sound asleep! Then I knew I was the only one hearing it, and I was in The Holy Spirit. What I heard was a loud chorus of many thousands singing beautiful praises to Jesus. These words were the same ones that John heard and wrote in The Holy Bible. See Revelation 5:11-13.
“Then I looked and heard the voice of many angels, numbering thousands upon thousands, and ten thousand times ten thousand. They encircled the throne and the living creatures and the elders. In a loud voice they were saying:
‘Worthy is the Lamb, who was slain,
to receive power and wealth and wisdom and strength
and honor and glory and praise!’
Then I heard every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and on the sea, and all that is in them, saying:
‘To him who sits on the throne and to the Lamb
be praise and honor and glory and power,
for ever and ever!’”
It was beautiful music from a huge choir – many thousands, with such rich and thoroughly perfect music! For the next several weeks I would hum this music during the day at work or play it over and over in my head. I was filled with joy.
Others in the workplace thought it was strange that I was smiling so much and humming music while work was piled on me. I asked Pastor Jim if he had ever heard a chorus sing during the night. He said no, that I had been given a gift.
Looking back, I’m not sure why it occurred, but this chorus may have been setting the stage for Jesus to come to me soon.
