Healing Pioneer by Roberts Liardon

Roberts Liardon tells us that on a cold winter morning in 1925 in a schoolyard in Scranton, Pennsylvania, a group of rosy-cheeked children laughed glee­fully as they chased each other around the tall oak tree. Little girls giggled on the swing set as they swung higher and higher.

Suddenly, one little girl fell to the ground, crying as she clutched at her chest. Apparently, she had injured herself, but even as she wiped her tears, the adults who were supervising were not concerned. Nine-year-old Raffaela Serio continued to have pain near the “invisible” injury on her chest. Her parents were concerned, so they took her to see one doctor and then another. It appeared she had just bruised the area near her left breast, but as the pain increased, a small lump formed and then grew to the size of an orange.

Raffaela’s parents called on a friend who was a pediatric specialist trained at Johns Hopkins University. After administering several diffi­cult tests, the doctor gravely pronounced the diagnosis. Little Raffaela Serio had sarcoma cancer of the left breast.

The grieving parents watched as their precious daughter lost weight rapidly. The specialist determined that the cancer was rooted too deeply for surgery and said he could do little for the pain. There was also an open, seeping sore, but since not much was known about cancer at the time, the doctor prescribed a special brown salve to be applied on the af­fected area each day, which would then be wrapped with clean bandages. Although they tried to be hopeful, Raffaela’s doctors saw slim chance for a recovery.

Various Kinds Of Tongues by Roberts Liardon

Roberts Liardon tells us that most Bible teachers today only teach about one type of tongue; tongues for personal edification. That’s why most Christians are stuck in one zone when it comes to praying in tongues. They don’t teach on the diversities of tongues that God makes available to His people.

Tongues for personal edification is important, but what about tongues of intercession? Diversities of tongues need to be taught in the Church so that the people can understand what they are and how to flow in them.

Roberts Liardon tells us that if you know about the different diversities of tongues that are available, you can step into them when the Spirit of God leads and get things done faster.

Many Christians today don’t know that diversities of tongues are available to them. Some may know it by chapter and verse, but they don’t know it experientially. When they begin to venture into the deeper things of God through praying in tongues, they withdraw themselves from different diversities because of fear or because of ignorance. That’s why so many have troubles in their life that never seem to conclude. They don’t know how to go deep enough in the Holy Spirit to find the answers to their problem.

The Spirit Of God by Roberts Liardon

You just go on with the service, but ten times out of ten, if it’s a true tongue, there’s an interpretation in the room somewhere. If the interpretation doesn’t come, it might be because the person that received it is scared to give it and they are holding it back. When they say “no” and they keep pushing it down, they grieve the Spirit of God. When that happens, the Spirit of God will fall on somebody else to give it. That’s why it sometimes takes a little bit longer than usual to get the interpretation.

Roberts Liardon tells us that usually, when a tongue and an interpretation comes, if the congregation is fluent in spiritual things and there is no fear among them, the interpretation will come almost before the tongue is finished. The person interpreting will just start bubbling over with the interpretation. That’s the way it often works when there is a fluency in the congregation and there’s no embarrassment about the gifts of the Spirit.

Paul And His Experience With The Holy Spirit And Tongues by Roberts Liardon

Roberts Liardon tells us that in Acts chapter 9, we find the story of Paul’s conversion. In verse 4, we read that Paul has been knocked off his horse, he’s gone blind and he’s had a vision all at the same time — now that’s called an event! It gets even more dramatic when you consider Paul’s occupation before this occurrence; he was persecuting the Christians, putting them in jail, and killing them! Then God sent His lightnings from His throne room and interrupted Paul’s evil agenda. Everybody that was with Paul fell to the earth but Paul was the only one who heard and saw Jesus.

Let’s begin reading from verse 8:

Then Saul arose from the ground, and when his eyes were opened he saw no one. But they led him by the hand and brought him into Damascus. And he was three days without sight, and neither ate nor drank.

Acts 9:8-9 (NKJ)

Roberts Liardon tells us that after an experience like that, I don’t think I’d eat or drink either! Think of this poor man’s shock factor! He’s on his horse, traveling to the next city and looking for Christians to persecute and … bam! He wakes up after a vision and he can’t see a thing! For three days and three nights, he does nothing but fast and pray. I think that’s kind of funny! I’d pray too if I was knocked off my horse and struck blind! I’d pray loud enough for the whole world to hear! That’s what Paul did at the beginning of his experience with Jesus.

Let’s continue reading in verse 10:

Now there was a certain disciple at Damascus named Ananias; and to him the Lord said in a vision, “Ananias. “And he said, “Here I am, Lord.” Acts 9:10 (NKJ)

He Will Show You Things To Come by Roberts Liardon

Roberts Liardon tells us that Jesus goes on to say that the Holy Spirit, “… will not speak of Himself.” (John 16:13) That means that the Holy Spirit doesn’t have an ego problem. He doesn’t fly around saying, “I was there when the world was made! I’m just as big as the Father! I deserve some of the credit for all of this because I’m the Holy Spirit!” The Holy Spirit doesn’t act like humans. He doesn’t have a pride problem at all. He has come for two main purposes: to reveal Jesus in the earth and to empower believers. He has come to be your guide, your comforter and your helper in life and it’s up to you to let Him do it.

“He will not speak of Himself, but whatsoever He shall hear, that shall He speak, and He will show you things to come.” (John 16:13)

Who is the Holy Spirit listening to? He’s listening to the Father and He’s listening to the Son. Whatever He hears them saying, He will reveal to you. If you’re real close to Him, He will sometimes let you in on things that are being planned by the Father and the Son. He’ll give you glimpses into what is being sent from Heaven to the earth.

Roberts Liardon tells us that the Holy Spirit has access to that kind of communication between the Father and the Son. He has the ability to observe and know what’s being planned, because He’s a part of it. Jesus said that the Holy Spirit would show you things to come. That means that the Holy Spirit will show you things to come on different levels of life. He will show you things to come in your family. He will show you things to come in the church. He will show you things to come in your community, in the nation, in the world and in the realm of the spirit. The Holy Spirit will roll back the curtains of the future and show you what’s about to take place. He likes doing that, because that’s what Jesus sent Him to do.

Beauty and Harmony by Roberts Liardon

Roberts Liardon tells us that Marietta, the angel, and the two children began to ascend to a beautiful city surrounded by flowers and filled with stately buildings, shady trees, and colorful, melodious birds. The further they went, the more beautiful and harmonious the buildings and the whole atmosphere became. The numerous avenues led to a central area where there was a building that appeared to be constructed of delicately carved marble. It supported a vast dome.

This was the home of all the infants in Heaven. Along the avenues, there had been other buildings. These were the “nurseries” where infants were first brought and instructed in the truths of Heaven.

Roberts Liardon tells us that this angelic servant proceeded to explain that when an infant died on earth, the guardian angel escorted him to Heaven and grouped him with others of similar artistic, scientific, and social abilities, where that child could best develop. There were seven guardian angels over each building who directed the infants’ instruction, and the buildings themselves were grouped into “families” of seven. This method of organization allowed for an orderly instruction of the little children, who were brought together to sing the praises of their Savior.

Marietta was then allowed to see into the nurseries and felt that she had indeed seen Heaven! In the nurseries, these babies were lovingly tended and instructed by angels, who also played the most beautiful music imaginable for the tiny ones with whom they had been entrusted. Marietta’s angel expressed her fervent wish that bereaved parents on earth could know the love and care that awaited their children in Heaven!

Meeting My Angel by Roberts Liardon

Roberts Liardon tells us that on my way back toward earth, I remember meeting my angel, who flew up next to me and introduced himself. “I am the one who is with you. I’m the one who stands with you. I’m the one who assists you. I’m the one who protects you.” And he began to list the various services he performs for me.

Roberts Liardon tells us that then he told me, “I will be with you, even throughout eternity, and I will stand by your side. There will be other angels who will come and go throughout your life, according to the season and the anointings that you carry. There will be different angels, for angels and anointings work together.”

And then I was back in my room.

Back on Earth

I was startled, of course, and I lay on my bed wondering about everything I had just experienced. I realized the experience had indeed been real, because the fire of God and the anointing continued to flow in me for several hours after I came back.

My trip to Heaven had been so special that I cherished it close within me for a while. I was not sure that anyone would believe a little boy could be taken to Heaven for a tour with Jesus. Thus, it was nearly eight more years before I ever told anyone about this experience.

I have always sensed that I was a type of forerunner for the young people whom God will use in this generation. In my ministry, I challenge the older people to fulfill God’s calling, but I identify with the young people.

Cherubim in the Book of the prophet Ezekiel by Roberts Liardon

I noticed that angels acted differently in Jesus’ presence than people did. Where people were reverent, but talkative and friendly with Jesus, the angels were almost silent, respectful, and reserved in His presence. I believe this is due to the fundamental difference between angels and humans.

Not all angels are the same; the Bible classifies them into several groups. Among these are the cherubim, the seraphim, the archangel, and the common angel. There are also warrior angels and messenger angels and probably many kinds not mentioned in Scripture.

Roberts Liardon tells us that Cherubim are described particularly in the Book of the prophet Ezekiel. Although often portrayed in popular art as fat, romantic babies shooting arrows of “love” at people, their reality is far different. They are often not classed as angels, but as a different order of being. They protected the Garden of Eden with flaming swords after Adam and Eve had been put out of Eden to live on the earth.

Among other characteristics, the cherubim (plural of “cherub”) each have four faces and four wings with feet like those of calves. They do not “turn” as they move, but go straight forward. One of their faces is that of a man in front, one like that of a lion on the right side, another like that of an ox on the left side, and the remaining one is like the face of an eagle in back. Two of their wings are joined to each other and the other two cover their body.

Cherubim have an appearance similar to that of burning coals of fire, from which lightning goes forth. They have four hands, in appearance like that of a man. As they moved, Ezekiel heard the noise of a great rushing.

Roberts Liardon tells us that the main function of cherubim in Scripture is that of covering or protecting. Nowhere is this more evident than in Ezekiel 41:18-21, where there are carvings of cherubim placed all around the temple as a sign of being covered with God’s protection. In the same way, in Exodus 37:7-9, Moses had been told to make golden replicas of cherubim to shadow or cover the ark of the covenant.

Lord and Savior by Roberts Liardon

Roberts Liardon tells us that this is holy and very special to me. Jesus is still the rightful Lord of the entire universe. He is the only Savior of mankind. But that day, He became my personal friend. It has been that single experience that has helped me all through my life. When circumstances and the enemy have buffeted me, when I have felt like quitting, it is this one moment that has caught me, picked me up, and kept me on the path God has marked out for me.

If believers here on earth could come to know Him not only as Lord and Savior, but also as friend, how it would transform their lives! In times of temptation, failure, and sin, they would run to Him, instead of away from Him. They would find that He is concerned with the smallest and most intimate areas of their lives and that He longs to help them and make their path clear and straight. They would serve Him with joy in willing response to His love, rather than cower before Him as a taskmaster whose wrath they fear. They would know that He is for them and not against them.

Roberts Liardon tells us that after Jesus and he played in the river of life for a while, we got out. It was as if a giant hair dryer then began to blow and dried our clothes instantly. We put on our shoes and departed, and we began to walk past more buildings, seeing other people.

Then we passed something I never expected to see in Heaven and which struck me at the time as the funniest thing I had seen. Yet, when I considered it later, it was one of the most moving and encouraging sights of my Christian walk with God.

Third Type Of Vision Is The Inward Vision by Roberts Liardon

Roberts Liardon tells us that a third type of vision is the inward vision. This vision is often compared to a dream. The person experiencing it does not see into the supernatural world, but receives revelation within himself, in his mind. In Daniel 2:28, the prophet Daniel refers to this as he replies to King Nebuchadnezzar about the king’s disturbing dream:

…there is a God in heaven who reveals mysteries. He has shown King Nebuchadnezzar what will happen in days to come. Your dream and the visions that passed through your mind as you lay on your bed are these (NIV).

A final type of vision is frequently referred to as a night vision or dream. This is mentioned in the story of Mary and Joseph in Matthew 1:20. Joseph had been pledged to Mary, but she was now to have a child. Consequently, Joseph planned to separate from her privately to share her disgrace, when,

After he had considered this, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, “Joseph son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary home as your wife, because what is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit” (NIV).

Roberts Liardon tells us that these night visions are not just human dreams; they are sent from God and have a supernatural component to them. They don’t deal with simple earthly events or human desires, but with God’s great plans that He wishes to reveal. Indeed, visions, dreams, and signs that are from God always point to Jesus and what He did to redeem mankind. They make His name great rather than lifting up a person. They never offer a different path to God, but rather direct men to Jesus, whom John 14:6 tells us is “the way, the truth, and the life.” They are filled with what is pure, good, true, and holy; furthermore, they never instruct us to violate the commandments and laws of God.
