ANGELIC ENCOUNTERS- ANGELS SINGING CAUGHT ON TAPE - Audio Files

Angelic
Encounters



From: "Choices for Living" - Jim Bramlett



In the past few years
I have been able to acquire tape recordings of what appears to be angels
singing, at four different locations, one in China and three in the U.S.

The tapes were buried in storage boxes until recently, when I decided to search
for them and make them available on my Web site, with the volunteer help of my
Webmaster friend, Mike Vest. This has now been done, and they are available at
the links below.

Each link offers the best possible explanation of the circumstances.

The audio quality is sometimes very poor but it is the best we can do. For
example, the Chinese recording was done with a cheap recorder in a home church
in a small Chinese village. It is very weak, but we are blessed to have what we
have.

Personally, I find all of them electrifying, and inspiring!

By the way, other examples of angels being heard, and even seen visibly, at
other churches have been reported to me from time to time.

Enjoy, and join the angels in praise to our great and wonderful Creator and
Savior!



Encounter # 1: Angels singing in a Maryland church (MP3)

Feb. 6, 1996,
recording at the Greater Grace World Outreach Church in Baltimore, Md

The recording came
from a church service in Baltimore, Maryland. It was given to me by a very
reliable pastor friend who is a part of that church and who vouches for its authenticity.

On the recording, a lady is playing the piano and leading in spontaneous
worship. Gradually, you are able to hear accompanying voices in the background
-- beautiful voices of beings who were not in the service. There seems to be no
doubt they are angelic voices.

I have the full tape with the pastor discussing the situation with the
congregation, and about 25 people gave testimony to hearing the voices. They
were all in awe at what had happened.







Encounter # 2: Angels singing in a Chinese church (MP3)



(There is a pause at
the end of the vocals but do not turn it off because an instrumental portion
follows. The quality if the tape is not good, but it came from a cheap recorder
in a small Chinese village so we are blessed to have what we have. Turn up your
volume as much as possible.)

The Shandong Miracle

Angels discovered
singing end-time

song in a rural Chinese worship service!

In May, 1995 I
received this most electrifying report from a friend who for several years has
been the leader of a ministry to China. To protect him and his contacts in
China, I must not reveal his name. But for you to better understand his
credibility, let me explain that I have known him for many years. He is a
graduate of a prestigious theological seminary and is a former pastor. My
friend is an intelligent and balanced servant of God. He is not given to
sensationalism. The following is a summary of his recent report to me.

The whole province of Shandong, in eastern China (population: 57 million), was
in the midst of a sweeping revival. For fear of arrest, believers meet secretly
in house churches, often by candlelight. At a 1995 meeting in Shandong,
everyone was singing "in the Spirit" together (1 Corinthians 14:15),
not in their own language, but "as the Spirit gave them utterance,"
all in harmony but all singing different words. Someone audiotaped the meeting.
Later, when they played back the cassette, they were shocked! What they heard
was not what had happened there at all -- but the sound of angels singing in
Mandarin -- a song they had never heard before, and with a musical
accompaniment that had not been there!!! When my friend first heard the tape,
before anyone told him what it was, he exclaimed, "Those are
angels!!" Actually, there was no other explanation.

Below are the actual
translated words sung by the angels! Note that the words express ideas with
which these rural Chinese peasants were not familiar. (Original Chinese version
follows).

"The End is Near: Rescue Souls"

1. The famine is becoming more and more critical.

There are more and more earthquakes.

The situation is becoming more and more sinister.

People are fighting against each other, nation against nation.

Disasters are more and more severe.

2. The whole environment is deteriorating.

Disasters are more and more severe.

People's hearts are wicked, and they do not worship the true God.

Disasters are more and more severe.

3. Floods and droughts are more and more frequent.

There is more and more homosexuality and incurable diseases.

Disasters are more and more severe.

4. The climates are becoming more and more abnormal.

The earth is more and more restless.

The skies have been broken. The atmosphere is distorted.

Disasters are more and more severe.

Chorus:

The end is near. The revelation of love has been manifested.

Rise up, rise up, rescue souls.

The end is near.

Rise up, rise up, rescue souls.

The above English
words were translated from the original Chinese below by two native Chinese
Christians in Beijing who have personal knowledge of the church and the pastor
where the incident happened:











Encounter # 3: Angels singing in a Florida church (MP3)



This tape is just a
portion of a church service at the Carpenter 's Home Church in Lakeland,
Florida, with visiting evangelist Rodney Howard-Browne. Because of the quality
of the tape it is difficult to distinguish individual angel voices but they
seem to lift the praise of the congregation to a totally new and awesome level,
and it just goes on and on. The intensity and consistency are clearly
supernatural and beyond the ability of the congregation.

One reader reported back to me that she was actually present at the Florida
church when it happened. She wrote:

"The tape of the
Florida meeting was exactly like the way it sounds. Glenn and I were there
during those meetings and if it wasn't this one then there is another tape of a
meeting where it happened again. The one we were in went on and on and stopped
abruptly. Silence for about a minute then a male voice sang out 'Glooooory' and
several women's voices from different directions echoed 'Gloooooory' in perfect
harmony, and the praise and worship started up all over again. It was quite a
gathering to say the least and I am so glad that you are able to share
it."



Followup from someone who was there:

One reader was
actually present at the Florida church when it happened. She wrote: "The
tape of the Florida meeting was exactly like the way it sounds. Glenn and I

Encounter # 4: Angels singing in a Kansas church (MP3)



I have had this tape
for several years but I recently found a cleaner version of it on the Internet,
preceded by an explanation. I do not know the identity of the narrator. If
anyone knows, please let me know.

According to this
report, it happened in a church in Kansas City, Kansas; however, I have
differing reports as to its origin. It is within the realm of possibility that
God allowed this manifestation in more than one place!

Near the end of the song there is a brief male solo. Exact words sung are
difficult to discern, and listeners have speculated on what they are. I have
taken their feedback and re-listened a dozen or more times myself, and the
following seems to be correct, with a friend's view added in parentheses, taken
from his better equipment:

"Halleluyah(s), breathe it (or ringing) all across the land



Everybody's singing at the Lord's command



All the saints and the angels up in glory wait to hear the news



of Jesus and his children that (or as) they're coming soon
(through).

Halleluyah, halleluyah, etc. "



More feedback on the
angels singing in the Kansas church....

Listeners have speculated on the words of the male solo at the
end, especially the last line. I have taken their feedback and re-listened a
dozen or more times myself, and the following seems to be correct:

"Halleluyah, breathe it all across the land

Everybody's singing at the Lord's command

All the saints and the angels up in glory wait to hear the news

of Jesus and his children that they're coming soon.

Halleluyah, halleluyah, etc."

Other Angel
Experiences



Also in the past few
years I have investigated and documented several actual cases of angels
appearing as humans and bringing a message of the soon return of Jesus Christ.

Angels who appear as humans are not without biblical precedent. For example,
two angels came to Sodom to warn Lot before they destroyed the city (Genesis
19). They visited Lot's home, ate with him, and even spent the night! They
appeared as such "real people" that Sodom's homosexuals tried to
accost them and have sex with them, but the angels struck them blind. The next
day, because of its blatant wickedness, God destroyed the city by fire.

Angls are real, the Bible tells us. Hebrews 1:14 says they are ministering
spirits sent to (not everyone, but) those who are to inherit salvation. We are
also told that "some people have
entertained angels without knowing it" (Hebrews 13:2), and therefore "we should not forget to entertain strangers." The one caution the Bible gives is
that we are not to worship them.

Recognizing and acknowledging their work is okay as long as we do not worship
them. Worship is reserved only for God.

It is important to
stress that any mystical experience, even messages from angels, must be
carefully judged against God's Holy Word, the Bible. New Agers and other
non-Christians claim angelic revelations while rejecting the cross of Christ
which paid the price for our spiritual blessings and access to heavenly things.
They are deceived and usually involved with demonic spirits. A pertinent fact
about the experiences I describe in the special report mentioned is that they
came to me after I had already concluded their general message from the
Scriptures. Therefore, they were confirming messages. Nevertheless, judge them
for yourselves.



Angels appear as
humans

-- then vanish --

after making startling announcement

that Jesus is coming "very, very soon"!!!

And other supernatural confirmations

of Christ's soon return!

by Jim Bramlett

Introduction. Numerous
reputable people have told me, most unsolicited, of experiences with angels
they either had personally or knew about. In most cases, the angels appeared to
provide help in some distressful situation. However, several of the incidents,
including the ones below, are particularly interesting for two reasons: (1)
they contain a message (literally, the word "angel" means
"messenger") and, (2) the incidents were brought to my personal
attention under unusual circumstances, making me think God sent them my way. In
each case, the angel delivered basically the same startling announcement of the
soon return of the Lord Jesus Christ. Why me? Why did these stories come to me?
My only guess is because I have the inclination to pursue them, to write about
them, and to tell you about them. In God's great love, it may all be just for
you.

Caution. It is important to stress that any mystical experience, even messages
from angels, must be carefully judged against God's Holy Word, the Bible. New
Agers and other non-Christians claim angelic revelations while rejecting the
cross of Christ which paid the price for our spiritual blessings and access to
heavenly things. They are deceived and usually involved with demonic spirits. A
pertinent fact about the experiences below is that they came to me after I had
already concluded their general message from the Scriptures. Therefore, they
were confirming messages. Nevertheless, judge them for yourselves. (Note: I was
not able to confirm # 1.)

Encounter # 1 (Not confirmed)



This is one of the
incidents reported to me that I was never able to actually confirm after hours
of frustrating attempts and many long-distance telephone calls.. It reportedly
happened in the Atlanta, Georgia area, on I-285 near "Spaghetti Junction."
I traced the incident from a friend in California California to a United
Airlines pilot in Chicago, then to at least 15 others in Atlanta, including a
medical doctor. Each person with whom I have talked has seemed highly credible,
although I could never trace it to the source.

A lady passed a hitchhiker on the expressway, giving no thought to stopping.
But she heard a voice say, "Pick him up." She did not stop, but
continued on. But she again heard the voice: "I told you to pick him
up." She now felt compelled to go back. She turned off the expressway,
then got back on via an access road. She thought it would be unlikely that the
person would still be there, but if he was, she would pick him up. To her
surprise, the man was still there, so she stopped. He got into the car. They
chatted for a few moments, then after a brief pause, the stranger said,
"Do you know the Lord Jesus Christ is coming soon?" On hearing that,
the woman glanced toward the stranger -- but he was not there. He had suddenly
and unexplainably vanished!

She was so shaken that she had to pull off the expressway. After sitting there
a few minutes trying to regain her composure, a policeman pulled up behind her,
got out of his car, went up to her window and said, "Ma'am, is there a
problem?"

She replied, "Officer, if I told you what just happened to me, you
wouldn't believe it."

The policeman urged her to tell him anyhow. She described what had just
happened. He responded, "Ma'am, normally I would think that you were one
of the craziest people I have ever seen, but you are the seventh person today
to give me this same report."

Encounter # 2 (Confirmed)



While in the process
of investigating the above incident, I learned of this next amazing one from
another person in California, although it took place in Tennessee. It happened
just past midnight on March 26, 1993, to Vincent Tan, an analytical chemist who
works in Chattanooga. I spent weeks personally tracing this incident and have
confirmed it with two reputable Christian leaders, his pastor and, finally, even
Vincent himself. The following is a precisely recorded account: Vincent was
born Tan Ban Soon in Singapore of Chinese, Buddhist parents. A few years ago as
a young boy in Singapore, he was in the library reading a book on nuclear
physics and discovered an offer for a Bible course stuck between some pages. He
ordered the course and later became a Christian. He came to the U.S. to attend
a Christian college, then gave himself the western name of Vincent. After four
years, he graduated with a major in science. He has been very active in his
church and in sharing his faith.

On the night of Thursday, March 25, 1993, Vincent was working late in his
laboratory to complete tests due on Friday. During the evening he moved his car
close to the front door of the building, since there had recently been criminal
activity in the area. From time to time he looked out the window into the
almost empty parking lot to check on his car. At 1:30 a.m. he finished working
in his lab. As he was preparing to lock the door, he saw a person standing by
the passenger side of his car. Vincent assumed the man was trying to steal his
car. He noted that the stranger was of medium build with clean-cut, straight
hair and had on a T-shirt, blue jeans and white tennis shoes.

Unsure what to do, he went back into the lab and prayed, "Lord, help me to
do what I have to do. Do I have to use chi-sao?" Chi-sao (pronounced
"chee'-sow-o") is a form of martial art in which Vincent is
proficient. To be extra safe, he looked around the lab and picked up an 18-inch
metal rod, held it behind him and stuck his head out the door. He said,
"Hi, can I help you?"

The stranger answered, "Hi, Vincent."

Startled, Vincent asked, "Do I know you?"

The stranger replied, "Not really."

"What is your
name? Who are you?" Vincent probed.

The stranger said,
"I have the name of your primary and secondary school." He added,
"I'm a friend. You don't have to use chi-sao or the rod on me." His
voice had unusual authority, and it seemed he knew the question before it was
asked.

Now Vincent was really startled. No one, not even his best friend in this
country, was familiar with chi-sao, nor did anyone even know that he knew it.
Also, there was no way the stranger could have seen the rod behind his back.
Vincent later reflected that the stranger had used terminology ("primary
and secondary school") of Singapore and not the U.S., and that name of his
school back in Singapore was St. Gabriel. The stranger was saying that his name
was Gabriel!

"How do you know
that?" Vincent asked.

"I know," the stranger replied. "By the way, Mum is fine."
Vincent was startled again. Just the week before, his sister had called from
Singapore saying that his mother had heart complications, and Vincent had been
quite worried about her.

Gabriel continued, "You love the Lord very much, don't you?"

"That's right," Vincent replied.

"He loves you very much, too," Gabriel said. Then he added, "He
is coming very, very soon." He seemed to emphasize the "very
soon."

Vincent answered, "That's great!"

Gabriel then asked, "Can I have a cup of water?"

Vincent said, "Sure," and turned momentarily to get him the water.
Then he decided to invite the stranger inside to drink from the water fountain.
He turned back to invite him inside -- but Gabriel was not there. He had suddenly
and unexplainably vanished! Vincent had not turned his head for more than three
seconds. There was no place for the stranger to have gone.

Puzzled, and not wanting to go back into the lab, Vincent laid the metal rod
down by the front door and headed to his home outside of Chattanooga. When he
came back to work later that morning, he wondered if he had dreamed the whole
experience. As a scientist, he wanted to prove whether it had really happened.
When he got to the building, he found the metal rod lying by the door just
where he had left it. He knew he had not been dreaming. Upon entering the lab,
the first thing he did was to lock himself in the rest room and kneel in
prayer. "Show me what to do, Lord. I know what I remember. If I'm supposed
to share it, I must believe it myself," Vincent pleaded. He then sat down
at his computer and recorded every word said and everything that had happened.

That night, March 26, 1993, in a dream Vincent relived the whole experience,
seeing himself, and word for word hearing the whole conversation. He awoke at
about 3:30 a.m. and wrote down every word in the dream and the description of
the stranger. What he wrote from the dream confirmed every detail he had
written earlier. Also, a week after the experience, he learned that his mother
had received needed surgery and was recuperating nicely -- and that the medical
decision about her improved condition came a week earlier at about the very
same hour as he was talking with Gabriel!

On July 29, 1993 I asked Vincent what effect this experience has had on him. He
said he believes more strongly now that we should be ready every day for the
Lord's coming, and not worry about which day He will come. He said the
experience has intensified his dedication, causing him to spend more devotional
time than before, wanting to know more about God and be closer to Him. For some
time, even before that experience, Vincent said he had been asking God,
"Am I ready, right now?" Now, more meaningfully than ever, this
writer is asking that same question.

Encounter # 3: Vincent's second (confirmed)



I recently confirmed
personally with Vincent that he has had another encounter, this time with an
unnamed angel, on Thursday, December 23, 1993. Like the above, the following is
an accurate record of exactly what happened and words exchanged.

Two Significant Prior Events. There are two events that have a bearing on this
one. First, in July, 1993, Vincent had a dream. He saw himself standing at the
door of a big room. He saw many candles, but not all of them were lit. He asked
himself in the dream why the unlit candles. Then he heard a sad voice behind
him saying, "If only all of them were lit." He turned around but
didn't see anyone. A week later he had the exact same dream. Vincent shared the
dreams in his Bible study and said he hoped someday the Lord would show him the
meaning of the dreams.

Second, three months later in October, 1993 a stranded motorist waved Vincent
down and asked him to jump start his car. Vincent stopped but did not have a
cable. However, Vincent asked the man if he believed in God. The man asked what
could God do. Vincent told him he believed that God could help in any situation
such as this if we ask Him. So Vincent prayed out loud for God's help. After he
prayed Vincent noticed a coat hanger on the road.

Somehow, he figured out a way to break the coat hanger in two and use one part
to connect the positive terminals and the other part to touch the two auto
bodies together as ground. The man's car started. He looked at Vincent and said,
"You sure have a powerful God!" Vincent said, "I sure do. All we
have to do is believe in Him." The man said, "I'll have to think
about that," and left. Two days later, Vincent got a jumper cable for his
truck.

The December 23, 1993 Experience. Shortly after 11 p.m.,

December 23, 1993, Vincent was in his truck returning home from visiting a
friend near Chattanooga. About four miles away from the friend's home, he saw a
truck alongside the road with its hood up and with an old man, estimated at
about age 75, standing in front of it. Vincent was always wary of stopping for
strangers, and believed one must really be led of the Lord in order to do so.
He felt he should stop. He walked up to the man and asked if anything was
wrong, to which the man replied that he a dead battery. Vincent asked if he
could help in any way. The man asked that Vincent go get his jumper cable out
of the truck. Vincent was surprised that he said this, as if knowing that
Vincent had a jumper cable, especially since he had only recently obtained one.
Vincent himself had forgotten that he had the cable, but when the old man told
him about it he remembered. It was very dark and Vincent had to use his
flashlight to see to connect his end of the cable. Then he turned around to
discover that the man had already connected his end, even in the dark and with
no flashlight. That seemed impossible, and startled Vincent.

Vincent said, "I need to do something first." The man looked at him
and said, "I did it already." Vincent said, "Did what?" The
man said, "I placed the bricks by your tires. That's what you want, isn't
it?" The man had no way of knowing that Vincent had two bricks in his
truck or that he wanted to block his tires with them because he didn't trust

his hand brake and because the gear would have to be in neutral to start the
other truck. Vincent checked and discovered that the man had placed the bricks
behind the exact same tires that Vincent wanted. At this point, Vincent was
convinced that this was not a natural person. And after the experience in
March, Vincent had decided that if the Lord ever gave him the privilege of
another encounter with an angel, he had many questions he wanted to ask. But he
had a sudden feeling come over him and some force caused his mouth to be kept
shut. He was not able to say anything except to respond to whatever the old man
wanted or said.

Vincent was now ready to start the truck, and the old man said, "Can we
wait in your truck and have my truck charged up?"

Vincent agreed and they sat in his truck. The old man spoke first and said,
"Can we pray? God can work miracles -- even start a car with a coat
hanger." (The previous incident with the coat hanger job was a car and not
a truck!) At this, Vincent said to himself that this stranger must be an angel!

The old man prayed: "Oh most holy and powerful God in heaven, we know you
are coming very, very soon. Help us now in your own time and way. In Jesus'
Name. Amen." Vincent said the man's voice was so powerful and assuring
that it sent chills through him. After the prayer the man asked Vincent,
"Do you believe the Lord is coming soon?" Vincent said yes. Then the
man said, "He is coming very, very soon, and we need to be ready now and
always." Then he said, "Can I use your Bible?" Vincent agreed,
then without any word from Vincent the man reached into the glove compartment
for the Bible, already knowing where it was located.

The man asked Vincent, "Do you read your Bible.?" Vincent replied
that he tried to read it every day. The man said, "That's very good. It's
unfortunate that many do not do that. Having Bible studies is like being in a
big room with many candles that are lit." Vincent knew he had God's answer
about his dreams six months earlier. The unlit candles meant many people were
not spending time studying God's Word! Now Vincent had absolutely no doubt that
this was an angel.



It was very dark, but the man took Vincent's King James Bible and, without
searching, flipped immediately to the exact page, to Matthew, chapter 24. Then
Vincent shined the flashlight on the page as the man read verse 36: "But
of that day and hour knoweth no man, not the angels of heaven, but my Father
only." He then jumped down to verse 42: "Watch therefore, for ye know
not what hour your Lord doth come."



Then again, as if knowing exactly where the page was, without searching he
flipped to John, chapter 14, and read verses 1-3: "Let not your heart be
troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father's house are many
mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for
you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive
you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also."

Then again, he amazingly flipped directly to Revelation 3, verse 11, and read:
"Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take
thy crown." With that, the man put the Bible back in the glove
compartment. Vincent reflected that all three passages, and everything the man
said, was about the Lord's return.



After reading, the man put the Bible back and said, "The truck is
ready." He started the truck and Vincent said he would follow him for
awhile to make sure everything was okay. The man said, "Thank you very
much for your help. By the way, I left a small token for you. It will be enough
to fill up your car tomorrow." That was strange, because there was no way
for the man to know that Vincent had a car in addition to his truck. Vincent
followed him about a mile with the man's tail lights clearly in view, then as
they were going around a curve, he suddenly vanished from view. He and his
truck just disappeared. Thinking his vision may have been obstructed by trees
or something, Vincent even went back the next day during the daylight and
retraced everything. There were no trees or anything obstructing his view.
There was no human explanation. Also the next day, as he always does on Friday,
Vincent took his car to the service station to fill up the tank with gasoline,
so it would be full for the weekend. He had forgotten what the man had said
about leaving a token "to fill up your car tomorrow." Vincent put
$2.32 worth of gas in his car, then tried to round it off to $2.35 or $2.40.
But he could only get it up to $2.34 and it stopped. It just would not take
more than exactly $2.34.



Vincent then left to visit a friend's house, but remembered that he had left
the friend's Christmas gift in his truck, so he went back home. When home,
Vincent decided to clean his truck a bit before leaving. While doing so, he
found some money on the front seat, passenger's side, underneath his glove. The
money consisted of two one-dollar bills, a quarter, a nickel, and four pennies
-- exactly $2.34!"

Encounter # 4: Vincent’s third (confirmed)



Vincent had another
amazing experience in the early morning hours of Sunday, September 13th 1998.
He had been working late in his chemist job again to finish some urgent jobs.
He left work at about 1 a.m. When he got outside, he suddenly realized that he
had left his keys on his desk, but was not able to get back inside because of
the automatic lock on the door. So now he could neither get back inside, nor
drive his truck. He prayed that the Lord would unlock his truck, but nothing
happened.

He walked across the street to a pay phone but discovered it had been
vandalized. He remembered his cellular phone in his backpack and took it out.
Vincent then realized he had left the battery at home to be recharged (an old
model), and it could not work, of course, without a battery. Nevertheless, he
prayed and asked the Lord to allow him to make one call. As soon as he prayed,
he noticed the phone miraculously lighting up, and he called a friend to pick
him up. The friend agreed to do so.

Vincent then sat down by a doorstep of the lab and waited. A little while later
a police car drove up and stopped. The policeman asked, "What are you
doing?"

"I'm waiting for a friend," Vincent replied. He told the policeman
his situation, about the prayer to open his truck, and the call to his friend.

The policeman replied, "Your friend isn't coming." He noticed
Vincent's Bible, and added, "That's a good book to read." Some
conversation ensued in which Vincent disclosed his faith and his belief that
the Lord is coming "very, very soon."

The policeman replied, "I believe the Lord’s coming is very, very near
too."

At that very moment, a call came in over the policeman's radio and he said he
had to leave. Before he left, the policeman remarked to Vincent, "Why
don't you pray and ask the Lord to open the door to your lab?" Vincent
said he watched him leave, while praying silently.

Vincent said, "I had barely finished praying when the lab door
miraculously opened. I immediately stood up and turned around towards the door
and noticed that someone had pushed the lock bar and opened it from the inside.
I held on to the door and turned to look at the police car and noticed he was
not to be seen, even though I had taken my eye off him for only a few
seconds."

Vincent got his keys and drove away in his truck. He drove by his friend's home
and noticed both their vehicles in their driveway. He assumed that they must
have gone back to sleep, forgetting him.

Vincent said that he decided to go on home, "believing I may have actually
spoken with an angel," he said. The next day he checked with his friend
whom he had called and who had promised to pick him up. The friend did not
remember anything about the call!

Here we have: (1) a cell phone that miraculously works without a battery, (2) a
mysteriously appearing and disappearing policeman who said "I believe the
Lord's coming is very, very near," (3) the policeman knew in advance that
the friend would not pick Vincent up, (4) after the policeman told him to pray,
a door that miraculously opened from the inside even though no one was inside,
(5) a friend promised to pick him up but neither he nor his wife remember the
telephone call. The whole episode is no doubt supernatural.

Comments



Incident # 2 above
about "Gabriel" motivated me to review references in the Bible to the
angel Gabriel. By name, Gabriel appeared to three people. The first was to the
prophet Daniel in about 550 B.C. He gave Daniel a vision of the future,
including the timing of Christ's first coming. And similar to the message to
Vincent, he said to Daniel, "You are greatly beloved." Later, as recorded
in Luke, he appeared to Zechariah, saying these awesome words, "I am
Gabriel, who stands in the presence of God," as he announced the birth of
John the Baptist; then shortly thereafter he appeared to the virgin Mary to
announce the birth of Christ. Gabriel's main function in both Old and New
Testaments seems to be in connection with announcing the coming of the Son of
God to the world.



Angels who appear as humans are not without biblical precedent. For example,
two angels came to Sodom to warn Lot before they destroyed the city (Genesis
19). They visited Lot's home, ate with him, and even spent the night! They
appeared as such "real people" that Sodom's homosexuals tried to
accost them and have sex with them, but the angels struck them blind. The next
day, because of its blatant wickedness, God destroyed the city by fire.

Encounter # 5: Vincent's fourth (confirmed):



God makes a telephone
call -- literally!

This may or may not have involved an angel. What is described below could have
been either the sovereign hand of God Himself or an angel. However, we do know
that God does uses angels to carry out His work so my guess is that an angel
was involved. Also, the below incident does not involve prophecy but I am
including it because the supernatural nature of it affirms the other prophetic
experieces had by Vincent Tan described above.

On Saturday, April 6, 1996, Vincent was awakened at 4:30 a.m. with a burden to
pray. He slipped to his knees beside his bed for a few moments, after which he
returned to bed and to sleep. He arose later, and at 7 a.m. began his morning
prayer time. At 7:30, as he was still praying, the telephone rang. So as not to
be disturbed, he decided to let the answering machine take the call.

For some strange reason, the answering machine refused to take the call. The
telephone kept ringing, as though demanding to be picked up! Vincent discovered
that the answering machine was, indeed, on, but that it was not taking the
call. He decided to go ahead and answer it. He also noted that, oddly, his Caller
I.D. failed to show the number of the caller.

"Hello," Vincent said. Surprisingly, the other party also said,

"Hello." Again, Vincent said, "Hello." Again, the lady on
the other end said, "Hello." Vincent asked, "Do you want to
speak to me?"

The lady said, "No."

Vincent then asked, "Then why did you call me?" The lady said,
"I didn't call you." Vincent explained that his phone rang and he had
answered it. The lady said the same thing happened to her-that her phone rang
and she had answered it. Vincent told her his name, and she said her name was
Doris, and that she was in Iowa. They both concluded that somehow their lines
must have become crossed, causing this freak mishap.

(God had caused two distant telephones-one in Tennessee, and one in Iowa-to
ring each other simultaneously, and for the loving and Divine purpose explained
below.)

But in another surprise, Doris asked, "Are you the same Vincent who had an
experience with an angel?" Vincent said yes. She explained that she and
her mother had read about Vincent's story about a year ago in an article I had
written. Doris went on to say that six months ago, her mother was diagnosed
with cancer and only given six months to live. She said that every day for the
past six months her mother had prayed that she would be able to meet or speak
with Vincent before she died. In her prayers about this, she had claimed the
promises of Jeremiah 32:27, which says, "Behold, I am the LORD, the God of
all flesh: is there any thing too hard for me?" and Jeremiah 33:3:
"Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty
things, which thou knowest not." A few years ago, Vincent had also claimed
these same promises.

Doris explained that her mother was near death, and how that very morning, at
3:30 a.m., Iowa time (the exact same as Vincent's prayer at 4:30 a.m., Eastern
Time) she was awake and felt led to seek the Lord and remind Him of her
mother's request. She asked if Vincent would speak with her mother, to which
Vincent agreed.

(As an answer to this dying mother's fervent, daily prayers, God had
miraculously allowed her to speak with Vincent!)

Her mother was bed-ridden, so Doris decided to put Vincent on the
speaker-phone, which took a few moments to set up. Finally, after waiting,
Vincent heard the mother's weak but audible voice. The mother thanked Vincent
for talking with her, and then asked if he would please personally repeat for
her his angel experiences. Vincent patiently took about the next 45 minutes
describing to her the incidents in detail. At the end of his description,
Vincent heard the mother say weakly, "Praise the Lord. Amen."

This was followed by silence. All was strangely quiet. Vincent waited, thinking
that Doris was taking him off the speaker. After a few moments, Doris broke the
silence and came back on the regular telephone. "Praise the Lord,"
she said. "My mother just died."

Vincent now says, "I was so overwhelmed with mixed emotions. I did not
know whether to be happy or sad." He says he decided to say goodbye so
that Doris could be with her mother. In the shock and emotion of the moment,
Vincent didn't think to get Doris' telephone number for follow up. But he says,
"I know that the Lord has His reasons for us not getting each other's
numbers. Why He would not let her number flash on my (Caller I.D.) screen is
still a mystery. Yet I am amazed at His miraculous action in ringing both our
phones at the same time. As I ponder over the event, I am grateful to the Lord
for His loving kindness. It just encouraged my faith to trust Him even more, knowing
that in the fullness of His time, He will answer our prayers."

Vincent added the following, a message I believe not just for me, but for all
who read this:

"I hope that this will be an encouragement to you as it has been to me. I
know that we will see Doris' mother in heaven when we all will be able to know
the answers to our questions. The Lord is coming very, very soon. As we near
the final hours, I know that His presence is even evermore with us now....May
the Lord continue to bless you....Let us be ready now, for His coming is very,
very near."

Encounter # 6: Mother hears voice -- same message (confirmed)



More recently, while
perhaps not involving angel, on December 30, 1999, a mother in Maryland, Beth,
told me an amazing and confirming testimony. She said, "I would like to
share with you an occurrence that happened on December 10, 1999 in the a.m. My
8-year-old was at school and my husband was at work.... I had my 6-month-old
son in his swing in front of the television watching Sesame Street. What caught
my attention was that the television made the 'shhhh' sound. I turned to look
and the screen was snowy as expected with that noise. It's what happened next.
The television completely cut off. My child was asleep. No sooner did I think,
'Oh, the cable must have cut off,' did I hear a voice. It said, ‘The lord is
coming very, very soon.' I was dumfounded, and then the TV came back to normal
and Sesame Street continued."

She went on to describe her reactions and adds that it was three days later on
December 13th that she came across my article about Vincent’s angel encounters
with the exact same message.

"Needless to say," she concludes, "the messages that your
witnesses received were exactly as my message was. I was very shaken.... I
wonder why He chose me to relay this message."

Conclusion



While we may never
know the day or hour of the return of the Lord Jesus Christ, Scriptures do
clearly indicate that seekers will at least know approximately. And there is
overwhelming evidence that the return of the Lord will be soon. According to
the four of the encounters and testimonies above, it will be "very, very
soon."

Readers are permitted and encouraged to copy and share this article freely with
others. May the special presence and peace of the Holy Spirit rest upon each
person who reads this article, and may God's angels be with you and watch over
you at all times according to Psalms 34:7 and 91:11.



Someone has asked how do we know these are angels and not demons. Easy answer.
Praising Jesus, the Son of God, is not in the job description of demons! They
cannot stand to be around when praise to Him is going on, because that reminds
them of their defeat on the cross.

Angels singing caught on tape?

'It happened supernaturally. There's no other explanation'

Joe Kovacs is an award-winning journalist and, since 1999,
executive news editor of WND. He is the author of two best-selling books: "Shocked by the Bible: The Most
Astonishing Facts You've Never Been Told" and its 2012 sequel, "The Divine Secret: The Awesome
and Untold Truth About Your Phenomenal Destiny."

A
retired Air Force officer who now spends his days authoring books on
Christianity has posted an online collection of recordings he believes captures
voices and music of God’s angels in heaven.










“I
have four specific recordings of angels singing in church settings,” Jim
Bramlett of Lake Mary, Fla., told WND. “It happened supernaturally. There’s no
other explanation. It’s either from God or from the devil, and I don’t think
the devil is in the business of worshipping Jesus. That is not in his job
description.”

Bramlett,
76, collected the tapes from various sources in recent years, and has now put
them on his http://www.choicesforliving.com/spirit/angels/angels.htm" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">ChoicesForLiving website, where
readers can click on several links to listen to three recordings made in the
U.S., and one from China.

The
Feb. 6, 1996, recording at the
Greater Grace World Outreach Church in Baltimore, Md., starts
off with a woman playing a piano, and gradually, accompanying voices are heard
in the background. Bramlett described them as “beautiful voices of beings who
were not in the service.”








Jim Bramlett




“I
have the full tape with the pastor discussing the situation with the
congregation, and about 25 people gave testimony to hearing the voices. They
were all in awe at what had happened.”

Another
recording took place at the Carpenter’s Home Church in
Lakeland, Fla., and features a 10-minute, sustained sound after a call to praise
by a minister.

“They
seem to lift the praise of the congregation to a totally new and awesome level,
and it just goes on and on. The intensity and consistency are clearly
supernatural and beyond the ability of the congregation,” explains Bramlett, a
former vice president at the Christian Broadcasting Network where he spent nine
years.

A
woman who says she and her husband were at the Lakeland service wrote Bramlett
to vouch for the authenticity of what took place:

“The
tape of the Florida meeting was exactly like the way it sounds. Glenn and I
were there during those meetings, and if it wasn’t this one then there is
another tape of a meeting where [the phenomenon] happened again. The one we
were in went on and on and stopped abruptly. Silence for about a minute then a
male voice sang out ‘Glooooory’ and several women’s voices from different
directions echoed ‘Gloooooory’ in perfect harmony, and the praise and worship
started up all over again.”

Perhaps
the most stunning of all the recordings is thought to be from a http://www.choicesforliving.com/spirit/angels/angels-4.htm" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">church in Kansas City, where
there is not only an audible chorus of “Hallelujah” ? meaning “praise God” ?
but also the voice of a male soloist who purportedly was not present. The
lyrics of the mysterious solo were transcribed as follows:

Hallelujah, ringing all across the land

Everybody’s singing at the
Lord’s command

All the saints and the
angels up in glory wait to hear the news

of Jesus and his children as
they’re coming through.

Though
he doesn’t have it on tape, Wayne Warmack of http://www.gwhr.us/index.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Greater Works Ministries in
Rogers, Ark., says he and his wife, Sandy, personally heard angelic voices
during a Passover celebration last April at a lakeside retreat center near
Marianna, Fla.

“I
began to distinctly hear wordless voices in perfect harmony with us, that were
clearly not coming from me or Sandy, or the other 20 or so people present in
the room. They sort of drifted in and out of my hearing while I struggled to
maintain my composure and continue the song,” Warmack said. “If you’ve ever
heard that sound, it leaves you a different person than when you came in. I
can’t describe it. There’s just no way to describe it. It is definitely heard
with more than just the physical ears.”

But
not everyone is joining the chorus of hallelujahs.








Steven Novella




Dr.
Steven Novella, a neurologist at Yale University School of Medicine and
president of the http://www.theness.com/home.asp" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">New England Skeptical Society,
analyzed the electronic voice phenomenon, or EVP, at WND’s request.

“The
fatal problem with this entire type of evidence is that there is no way to
validate or invalidate the source of sound on a recording. Therefore it has no
discriminating value,” Novella said. “Personal testimony is not reliable as
evidence and is not acceptable scientifically. Choosing to have faith in the
persons making the angel-voice claims is no different than just having faith in
angels in the first place, so the recordings don’t get you anywhere.”

Novella
discussed some of the specific claims made by Bramlett and others who suggest
the source of the sound is supernatural:


“There seems to be no doubt they
are angelic voices.”
They sound like human voices to me. This is just a bold assertion without
supporting argument or evidence.[/*]
” … about 25 people gave
testimony to hearing the voices. They were all in awe at what had
happened.” Not
uncommon for a congregation of believers sharing a common belief and being
swept into an emotional fervor by an experienced preacher. Not exactly
dispassionate testimony.[/*]
“I have had this tape for several
years but I recently found a cleaner version of it on the Internet,
preceded by an explanation. I do not know the identity of the narrator.” This reminds of the “Jesus in
the clouds” picture that keeps cropping up. When the same piece of
evidence keeps coming up in different contexts and situations, that
strongly suggests fraud. Also, the angels in this recording were playing
bass guitar and horn, and at one point broke into a pretty funky beat.
It’s actually pretty laughable.[/*]
[/list]

Also, it was noted that the angel voices were not noticed until
the recording was played back, so nothing was heard during the recording. This
is a red flag for a recording artifact. The simplest explanation is that the
recording was made over a prior recording of a choir singing with accompanying
music, and they heard the two recordings superimposed when they played it back.

So, bottom line, these are all worthless as evidence. They are
being offered uncritically by people who already believe, are not questioning
the angel claims, and who are committing some logical fallacies.

“I
think his explanations are nonsense,” responded Bramlett.

“Over
the years, I have found there are negative skeptics and cynics out there on
every subject. It is easy to find them. They are so predictable, and they
typically reject anything supernatural. They have to, because to admit it would
be tantamount to admitting to a God to whom they are accountable. They cannot
permit that. It is as simple as that. Biblically speaking, you could say they
are spiritually dead and they think everything must have a natural, material
explanation.”

The
concept of supernatural beings called angels has a strong basis in Scripture.
In the King James Version of the Bible, the word “angel” is found 201 times in
192 verses, while “angels” occurs 94 times in 92 verses.

At
least two are named ? Michael and Gabriel ? and the New Testament describes a
galactic conflict involving angels at war with each other.

And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against
the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels (Revelation 12:7)

The
Bible also records numerous instances of angels appearing to humans and even
having discussions with them.












The
19th chapter of Genesis
indicates two angels helped rescue Lot and his family from the ancient city of
Sodom; Luke 1:26 shows
the angel Gabriel being dispatched by God to the town of Nazareth to inform
Mary she would miraculously become pregnant with Jesus; and Hebrews 13:2 reminds people to “entertain strangers,”
since some strangers might actually be angels.

Bramlett
believes angels are still making appearances in our modern day, and he documents several purported
instances on his website.

“Some
say that true reality is spiritual, not physical,” he said. “The supernatural
breaks through [into our dimension], and it’s exciting when it does.”
