When I was a teen-age boy I received my first direct visit from God. I was very pious and promised Him that I would do anything that He asked of me. It was during one of these prayer sessions on my knees amidst the most beautiful sunny day that God appeared. He was tall with thick white hair. He walked directly up to me in my own backyard. He sternly announced: "I want you to become a teacher!" "How do I know that you're God?" I replied. He promptly made the world disappear. I found myself surrounded by utter blackness and suspended in mid-air. I was terrified. God repeated his demand. But I closed my eyes tight and meekly exclaimed "No. I want to be a writer."

How is it possible that with undeniable evidence of God's power I could defy the ever-living Father? Even as I was stricken with fear I tried to bargain with Him. I held no desire to become a teacher and couldn't understand why He would make such a demand. My dream seemed incompatible with God's will. Unbelievable, isn't it? How could anyone possibly refuse the Almighty with tangible proof of his omnipotence?

This would be the first among six direct encounters with God that I would experience. Each time, the Lord endowed me with a definite awareness of who He is. God would never give up on me and my stubborn nature would never seem to abate. Why did the Lord take such an unexpected and surprising interest in me?

In the Bible it encourages all of us to welcome strangers at times into our lives and homes. You can never be sure when you might be entertaining angels or even the Messiah unknowingly. All the accounts in this book are true. But judge for yourself. Fact or fiction? Read this book and be changed forever.

God bless you in your own personal walk of faith.

In Christ's Name,
Stephen James
