Visions are an amazing gift from God! The following excerpt is shared from my newly published book, "Noorah - Light of God."
By the grace of God, provision with time is bestowed to me, opening an avenue to the past with a solid desire to write again.
The passion stirred within eight years after publishing "The Gems of Ginny, Memoirs of an Early Arizona Family," co-authored alongside my mother, Virginia D. Ballard.
In this round, I am called again to share a different spiritual perspective that enhances and strengthens relationships.
Applying my abilities, gifts given with guidance from God through Jesus and the Holy Spirit, the intentions here reflect a lifetime of experiences and connections with our families' history, spirituality, values, and beliefs. The stories come from my spirit.
Some of the entries in this book include visions through meditation. When a mental image is received through the Holy Spirit (and supplemented with a message or title), a Bible verse follows. I am taken to the Holy Word to seal the authenticity of the source, God.
Classified as an empathic spiritual translator, my role with skills to present any messages to others must align with the Bible. In many instances, the scientific notations along with data support events within the sessions.
The allowance of an appropriate supporting verse parallel to a vision ultimately glorifies God. I serve as a vessel to share meaningful, intentional, and insightful true spiritual stories diversified in purpose.
"The pattern of heavenly efforts" passed onto me is then transcribed and recorded.
Multiple visions began in April 2020, not long after the Covid, 19 pandemic broke out in mid-March. The Holy Spirit directs the messages, and a vision appears, an angel sometimes follows, then scripture pertinent to the subject matter is supplied.
To quickly bring the stories to the public's attention, I've delayed deeper explanations for the God-given gifts. For now, though, I'll admit that the abilities have encircled my life since childhood.
"The farther back you can look, the farther forward you are likely to see." (Winston Churchill)
In seeking Biblical affirmation, understanding, and acceptance for the blessing of spiritual gifts, I recently learned that the Holy Spirit and angels work together.
One of the best examples, chosen from Acts 8:26-29 (NIV®), is witnessed when Philip is guided by a heavenly messenger and helped by the Holy Spirit into a lifesaving mission.
"So he started out, and on his way, he met an Ethiopian eunuch, an important official in charge of all the treasury of Kandake (which means "queen of the Ethiopians").
This man had gone to Jerusalem to worship, and on his way home was sitting in his chariot reading the Book of Isaiah the prophet" (Acts 8:27-28) (NIV®).
Philip was ready now for further guidance from God. The angelic host would not reappear.
What was the outcome for Philip? He was privileged to lead the chariot rider - an Ethiopian eunuch - to Jesus.
The message of this Biblical account is interpreted: We strive to be good stewards with offerings of opportunity to witness to others. The goal is to reach humanity for the salvation of Christ!
The stories to follow are my pleasure to share with you from the perspective of my faith through God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit. Thank you & enjoy.
