Caught Up in the Spirit


The LORD told me that prayer was going into the Spirit and when you get into that Spirit place, you are in The Spirit World.

Listen to the Bible illustration of how the beloved John was in The Spirit and caught away to another place.

“I was in the spirit on the LORD’s day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet, saying, “I AM Alpha and Omega, the first and the last: and, what thou seest, write in a book………….”  [the book was the book of revelation!],   Revelation 1:10-11 KJV.


“After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, “Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter.”
And immediately I was in the Spirit: and, behold, a Throne was set in Heaven, and One sat on the Throne.  And He that sat was to look upon like a jasper and a sardine stone: and there was a rainbow round about the Throne, in sight like unto an emerald.
And round about the Throne were four and twenty seats: and upon the seats I saw four and twenty elders sitting, clothed in white raiment; and they had on their heads crowns of gold.
And out of the Throne proceeded lightnings and thunderings and voices: and there were seven lamps of fire burning before the Throne, which are the Seven Spirits of God,”
   Revelation 4:1-5 KJV.

The LORD gave me revelation [given to me personally in a “caught up experience(s)”], which has come about by spiritual encounter with the LORD.

In the desert in 1999 I was suddenly caught up and God talked to me, and I talked with God for over 9 hours.

I literally did not know what had happened for some time, but upon remembering back, I was literally in another place and I know it was the spirit world where the LORD God almighty is…

If you had been there that day you, would have seen my body draped over the alter for 9 hours, but as if I were dead [in a trance].  Nobody else was there, so only I can relate the experience to you.

On another occasion, early one morning around 3 a.m., while walking up and down in my study, praying very deeply and extended, I heard the LORD say to me,  “You’d better sit down, because you are leaving your body now and your body will fall down!”

I sat down in a chair and immediately, I felt my spirit leaving my body and I was taken out in spirit.

I then found myself standing in the heavens [above my house] looking at the beautiful stars.

Jesus was there and He walked right up to me and looked at me in my face!  It was awesome, and certainly I will never forget that morning.

I heard things that morning I had never heard before, and it was a life-changing event.

As the LORD talked to me He said,  “You have been here before, but you really did not understand where you were.”

And then explaining, He said,  “When you pray in the Spirit, deeply, your spirit literally goes out into the spirit world.  You have been praying for years, but did not understand spiritual prayer.

The deeper one prays, the further one goes.  The longer you tarry there, the more you experience and know.”  

When ones spends or seeks God at length or with all his heart, he literally finds the LORD, and is with Him, in Spirit.

The old timers called it: praying through, because in that place they found the answers, and experienced the LORD’s great power.

If you read the story of great Christians and their deeper experiences with God, you will discover their secret: spirit prayer and finding God in his secret place, The Spirit.

This morning again I was in The Spirit and heard things more.

As I was praying, I could literally realize myself in another realm.  My body began to burn with fire, and I was literally at the door of the other room, looking over into The Spirit.

I heard the LORD saying to me something I must share with you now, about living by faith.

The LORD talked about having a vision.

“You must,” He said,  “see a vision and that vision will become hope…  and that hope is all that you can build anything upon.”

“Literally,” He said,  “without a vision, you cannot build!  But with that vision, then the heavenly work can be done.”

The LORD reminded me of my stone sculpture experience, where I learned that if you can look at a piece of stone [and see something in it] then you can sculpt it!  If you do only see the stone, then inspiration is not there to work.

As I looked over into The Spirit, I saw the Angels moving things into place, accomplishing the vision.

I hear Him talking about how, with Him and His mighty Army, nothing is impossible and all can be done.

I saw Angels moving around the plans He has revealed to me, about building in the desert.

I saw impossible things happening, because of heavenly help.

“What do you see?” He asked,  “Then believe it and step on it!  And that is faith.

Faith is the part that is the enabling force to accomplishing all that you see.  I AM God of all possible means.  I can do it.  No matter what it is, I can do it!”  He said!

“But,”  He continued,  “you must see the vision!  Believe it!  Act upon it!  And I will work it.”

“You cannot do anything without Me,”  He continued, “but with Me all things are possible.”

The LORD continued, He said, “The spiritual, must become the physical!”

I tried to wrap my mind around what it was He was saying…  Then I saw it… The whole matter is spiritual, both heavenly and earthly.

The fact is, no work of any value will ever be done on this earth that did not begin first in heaven.

The heavenly nature of the initial vision becomes the heavenly/ physical work on earth!

This is why that when God does something mighty on earth, all the earth can look and see it and understand, only God could have done that!

The LORD gets all the glory for that work, but….  we can get in on the work and work with God in a heaven/ earth work!

The Bible tells us Enoch walked with God, and was not found, because God took him!…  What was he doing?  Walking in The Spirit World and it affected his earthly walk.

The LORD talked to me about Moses and what Moses saw.  Moses saw the earthly tabernacle and saw the plans.

Moses was told to build it exactly like his vision was of the heavenly tabernacle.  Moses then called the people and said: ‘All who are willing [who know his calling in the spirit to work] please bring things to give toward building the tabernacle’, and then they built what God told Moses to build, with God’s help [and I believe even the angels].

The place in the wilderness became His place of meeting.  The whole family of God moved around it and saw the Glory of God come down upon it.  They walked with God in that place.

When any person who believes God in prayer, seeing things or visions of God’s plans, simply has to believe God’s plans and step out on them in the physical!

Then the heavenly becomes earthly and the LORD and His mighty Angles, move things around……………….

Example:  Jesus said it was like that when He walked on water!  The water was earth bound, but the walk was in The Spirit.

It was heavenly.  The earthly Jesus walked on physical water in the spiritual!  Literally the water hardened beneath his feet, even as He believed it would.

The thing about this truth is: we can do anything we see Jesus doing.

I believe if you press into this teaching and step into that spiritual prayer room, you will begin to see Heaven’s plans accomplished in all that you envision.

I have posted this Word in obedience to my LORD.

LORD, help us step into the heaven/ earth spirit work, and walk with you.
