I recorded our 8 year old daughter Anna’s vision of Jesus in my journal of 10/15/2000.
The sense of the Lord’s presence was so strong in the sanctuary. I felt it was unusual and wanted to know what was happening. I typically sat on the front row but moved to stand in the back of the sanctuary while worship music was sung. I was seeking perspective, trying to discern what was going on.
Anna came up to me and said something, but I could not hear her because of the volume of worship. I smiled at her. Anna then spoke louder.
“Daddy, You didn’t hear what I said, did you?”
“No, what did you say?”
“Did you see Jesus?”
“You saw Jesus?”
I tried to inquire about her experience sensitively. Had she really seen Jesus or was this youthful imagination?
“Where was He?”
“He was standing behind the green microphone.”
Our worship team filled the front but there was one vacant place. The green microphone.
“What did he say?”
“He said, ‘I am coming back soon. Do not doubt that I am coming soon!’”
“What was he wearing?”
“He was wearing a robe.”
“What color was it?”
“Oh, Daddy, We don’t have those colors here! It was a kind of yellow, white and gold. But we don’t have those colors here. The light from him was reflected off the faces of the people.”
I told Anna that she had had a great privilege to see the Lord, and she should seal it in her memory for the rest of her life.
She told me, “Daddy the Lord told me, so I would tell others.” What a wonderful message for us to share with others! “I am coming back soon. Do not doubt that I am coming soon!”
