Jesus, Take the Wheel…
I had the most supernatural experience this week with the Holy Spirit. I’ve been sitting here trying to figure out the best way to introduce the story, and coming up with nothing creative to say, I’ve decided to just tell it.
I visited– and joined — a new church this week: RainFire Church in Douglasville, GA. The Pastor, Joann Rosario Condrey, is an amazing woman of God who loves Jesus more than anything. I was drawn to her ministry after hearing some of her music on Pandora. The lyrics to “More Than Anything” pierced my heart, and caused me to look her up online. I wondered how she could read my heart in that song. Turns out, she’s a pastor, and she posts all her sermons online! I gave up on finding a church, after only finding what I considered “fluff” in the churches I previously visited. But, Joann made me excited about church again. So even though I live 5 hours from Douglasville, I joined — because I feel in my spirit that RainFire is where I belong.
Her Father is Apostle Nahum Rosario. I visited for the first time because he was coming for a special 2-day impartation service. When Pastor Joann said he taught her everything she knows, something in my spirit knew I was supposed to attend.
The Holy Spirit was very present during the service. Apostle Rosario, affectionately known as Papa, is the first to ever lay hands on me for prayer. I felt a power that brought me to my knees, and the emotion that followed brought me to my face. I had never experienced anything like it. The next day, I asked him to pray for 2 specific things for me: accurate knowledge of God, and the breaking of a specific binding. He once again lay his hands on my head and prayed. The second time, his voice sounded so much more authoritative, but I did not feel anything like the day before. I told God thank you, because I knew I didn’t have to feel anything. God’s anointing is with Apostle Rosario and Pastor Joann — and I believed something new in my spirit had no choice but to awaken in such strong presence of the Holy Spirit.
The next day, as I started the drive home, I began praying in the spirit. Almost immediately, the Holy Spirit came upon me very strongly. That’s when I had an actual encounter with Jesus. I will admit, before that experience I probably would have found it hard to believe that Jesus would visit someone in their car at 10 in the morning. I would have guessed that Jesus was more of a “come in your dreams” type of visitor. He visited me in the middle of morning traffic on a Thursday. I was overcome with emotion. I literally thought, “Jesus, how am I going to drive while sobbing my eyes nearly shut.” If Jesus, made me say ‘Jesus take the wheel’ I probably would have fainted. Hearing Him say my name did something to me. To hear Jesus say your name is sweet to the soul. He told me He loves me, and that His Father loves me. I was being filled with the Holy Spirit and it was so unimaginably wonderful. I was so full of joy that I forgot about all my problems. Then, Jesus made me remember the binding that I needed to be broken. Immediately, my spirit began crying out to Him!! I heard my spirit say while sobbing, “You can arrest him!!!! You can arrest him Lord!!! You can arrest the demon that gives me nightmares.” Jesus’ words to me were this: “I am your Rest. I said to him ‘Release her’ and he had to do it.”
I was so full of peace in that moment. I knew that I was free. My Lord Jesus did that for me. I had been harassed in my sleep for many years by a wicked spirit. I was terrified to sleep for quite some time — unaware what was causing the fear. Once I knew what was causing the fear, the demon entered my dreams and gave me nightmares. They included violence, sexual attacks, perverted acts, incest, and harassment. Jesus set me free. That very day, I got the best, most peaceful rest than I’d gotten in a very long time.. I can’t recall when my sleep felt more safe.
During my conversation with Jesus, the Holy Spirit filled me until I felt like I couldn’t be filled any more. Actually, I believe it was an overflowing of the Holy Spirit. I was praying in the spirit, bubbling over with joy and hope, when Jesus said some things to me that were very serious. It was a message for those entrusted with His flock. I didn’t know what to do with the information at first. I still don’t know if this blog is enough because it really has no followers. But I will be obedient, and write what the Lord told me.
He said those who are over the church who are not holy are not part of His body. He said those unholy ones proclaiming to be the body of Christ are not His body. He said a Holy head cannot have an unholy body. He said only the holy ones are His body, and the unholy ones need to know Psalm 103:6. He said He is the Lord, and He is executing acts of righteousness and judicial decisions for all those being defrauded. He said his flock is being oppressed and defrauded by the unholy ones claiming to be Christ’s body – and it has not gone unnoticed. He said, while mercy abounds thoroughly repent now. He stressed the word thoroughly. He said, thoroughly repent, and you will become the body of Christ. He said, when He comes, those entrusted with His flock who have defrauded the flock, and who have not repented will hear this from Him: “Get away from me. You are not my body and you never were.” He said He will arrest you, and say Go. He said that “Go” will send you under the Earth with the rest of the defrauders, and He will not come back for you. He said you will be destroyed with the enemy.
During the entire message, I felt a strong sense of urgency, and seriousness. At the same time I felt deeply that Jesus wants repentance more than anything. He deeply wants those ones to repent. He loves them, but hates whatever they are doing. He doesn’t want them to receive what they will receive if they don’t thoroughly repent. I have no idea what they’ve done, or who He’s talking about. He just told me those things — and I’m doing what I feel I have to do by sharing the message — leaving nothing out.
I pray that whoever the latter part of this message is for receives it in love.
Psalm 86:5 You, Lord, are forgiving and good, abounding in love to all who call to you.
