A pastor who has preached hundreds of funerals for more than 20 years is convinced a dying man with no belief in spiritual things was visited by the Lord Jesus Christ, stirring the man to tell his wife and two adult children "I got God" the day before he passed away in a hospital bed.
"With all of my heart, I believe he had a visitation from the Lord because, prior to that day, neither he nor his wife wanted to hear anything—I mean nothing—about God," says Pastor Becky Salgado, who recently shared the story with Lead Pastor Jonathan Wiggins and his church staff.
Another pastor at Rez.Church says she, too, had a supernatural encounter with a woman seated next to her at Coors Field in Denver during a Colorado Rockies baseball game.
Pastor Kathy Melson says, "This lady taps me on the shoulder and says, 'there's something coming off of you. You're either a healer or a teacher.'
"Well, it's the Holy Spirit, and I'm a pastor," Melson says she told the woman from New Mexico.
Melson, who oversees prophetic and healing ministry, shared both recorded testimonies during of 21 days of prayer with Acts 9:31 as the theme. "I believe we are currently in awakening," says Melson.
Like in Africa and India, where entire villages are coming to faith in Jesus, "He is going to do it in America, too," says Melson.
Watch the video to hear Melson share biblical support for spiritual phenomena like a visitation from the Lord and to hear her personal awakening story from a baseball game. Also hear details of the dying man's encounter with God.
