True-Life 1

Dispersed intermittently between the next dozen or so blogs will be the amazing, supernatural and true-life accounts of my life, Author for “This Side of the Whirlwind.” The intended purpose for these blogs will be to reveal God’s divine hand in penning the message within “This Side of the Whirlwind” a book describing God’s intended end for the Latter Days and the Church Age as we know it. As a bonus, readers will discover the genuine modern-day involvement of God in the shaping of a human life specifically designed to serve His purposes. Though many may think the following true-life accounts unbelievable or even impossible, all that follows was and is true.

In May of 1958 a knock split the silence of my family’s home. When my mother answered the front door she was met by a young woman, a stranger she had not seen or met before.  While standing at the front door the mystery woman declared, “This time next year you will bear a son and he will be a man of God.” My parents were mildly Christian at that time, occasional church goers who were unaccustomed to prophecies or foretelling. My mother said she chatted with the woman for several minutes after the woman’s surprise declaration but could not remember the balance of their conversation.  Finally, not knowing what else to do, my mother thanked the woman and allowed her to go on her way.  My parents were uncertain how to respond to the woman’s sudden prediction for a future son with a potential life as a man of God and therefore simply filed the information away as a curiosity.  However, in May of the following year I was born as predicted. For the record, my mother did not share this strange happenstance with me until I was in my late thirties.

A little over two years later, when I was approximately fourteen months old, my father brought home a stranger; leastwise, one my mother had not met before. As my mother relayed the meeting, the gentleman after entering our home immediately and purposefully walked over to my playpen and placed his hands on my head before declaring, “This boy will be a man of God.” According to my mother it was the only time she and the gentleman ever met.

Years later in the summer of 1968, at nine years of age, I was walking in the forests of Show Low Arizona.  After entering a clearing, I remember thinking I might actually be lost.  Just then something caught my eye and I looked up and beyond the trees. There in the sky above my position I saw an enormous angelic being hovering in the clouds and looking directly at me.  Our eyes met and I was suddenly overwhelmed with a sense of well-being and was then joyfully filled with the Holy Spirit. I immediately heard the voice of God speaking to me and saying, “Don’t worry, you will be found in a few moments.”  Literally within moments a large group of people came walking into the clearing, flashlights in hand, looking for me. As far as I know, no one else saw or heard the angel except me.

The above stories and examples represent only a few of the many tantalizingly and true events God used to guide my life towards writing “This Side of the Whirlwind.”

Recap: True Life Series

There have been so many instances when God has moved in my life in a powerful and supernatural way that I can barely keep track. Do to God’s intervention (see link for True-Life 4) I began recording these divine encounter in 1999 when God changed my life, once again, for the better.  Thank You, Lord!Steve

I have presented these amazing pasted events through blogs, obviously, because I believe the awareness of these True Life events in my life will more than show the hand of God in my life as well as substantiate the message God provided in the book, “This Side of the Whirlwind, The Coming Apocalypse”.

A prophet is only as trust worthy as the accuracy of each and every prophecy. The following series of True Life events definitively shows a trail of confirmed prophecies which could only be established and carried out by the intervention of our Living Creator and Lord. May you genuinely enjoy and be blessed and awed by God’s greatness.

Remember, if God could use Balaam’s donkey to speak to one of His people he can certainly use me. Hee-Haw!

“This Side of the Whirlwind” is a message given by God for this generation of the Latter Days.

The book brings a message hidden for more than 2,000 years. A message hidden for those Children of God who WILL be living during the Tribulation Period of the Great Consummation very, very soon.

To God be the glory, honor, praise and power both now and forever, amen!
