Face To Face
The Almighty God
The Man Who Saw God Face To Face
Raphael Okechukwu Nweze
Beware of those who tell you that
it is not possible to see God.
Your belief is a key.
It either opens the door for you,
or locks you out!
All because Spirit is a Highly Sensitive Essence.
It responds to you according to your belief.
When God wants to teach His Children,
He sets up a drama.
What Is The Whole Encounter Like?
It is like a parable of a child who lost his way in the forest. After many days, he became hungry and faint. When he saw a tree with ripe fruits on it, he plucked down as many fruits as he could eat. Then, he settled down to eat. Immediately he raised the first fruit to his mouth, he sighted his father. Out of joy, he cast away the fruits in his hands and ran into the embrace of his father.
My Personal Encounter With The Ancient Of Days
In a spiritual encounter, a woman approached two gates: a big one and a small one. I moved closer to see what was happening. She opened the small gate and entered. I came to the small gate and opened it. As I touched the gate, I discovered that it was made of zinc and wood, in a very loose form. I asked myself, “How come that people were able to remove the strong gate I put in place and replace it with a very loose one?”
As I looked into the compound, I saw a dead body rise out of the grave. It was as dark as… and as disgustful as… And it turned out that I was the dead body, very much afflicted. I desperately cried out, “Daddy, help me! Daddy, help me!! Daddy, help me!!!”
Then the window of Heaven opened, and I saw God approach (come up to) the window. He came with the brevity of a lion, with eyes full of love, with sincerity of purpose, and with a bright countenance full of overwhelming love. I saw the Manifest but Hidden Truth. We spoke by thought. He was seeing and reading my thoughts, and I was seeing and reading His thoughts. He was directly looking into my eyes as if I were the only son of His. Can you imagine how a family so much loves the only one son in the family? I called Him, “My Father, My Father, My Father.” and He called me, “My dearly beloved son, My dearly beloved son, My dearly beloved son.” It is a pity that the world does not know how much God dearly loves us.
I have seen the Lord face to face, and I am satisfied.
God stood at the window, looking directly at me, into my eyes. He rebuked and commanded, and I was saved. Truly, by the way He appeared on the sky, with seriousness and firmness, earger to rescue, if there were uncountable demons holding me then, they would have let me go and flee away.
He bore witness that I am His son. Between Him and myself, and linking two of us inseparably, was an ocean of love (the Holy Spirit), also bearing witness that God and I are Father and son. My nature then was like God’s: a bright and glorious spirit. We were Father and son: just like you would have a lion and its curb (offspring). (Every child of God is His son/daughter, while Jesus is the First Son.) It was as if you would have a father on the mountain top, talking with his son, who is down in the valley, with each seeing and hearing the other.
He appeared very big and majestic. His countenance was filled with firmness of purpose. He was very eager to respond and rescue. He rebuked and commanded and I was saved.
He was directly looking at me. His eyes were eyes of love and His face was full of loving concern. Then I beheld God as Love, Loving and Beloved. I saw the Manifest but Hidden Truth.
Our communication was by thought: you see, hear and understand thoughts the way you hear and understand sound: clear and definite, and yet silent. The whole scene was of indescribable beauty. His appearance was like that of a rich king dressed in royal garment, with a very fine muffler across his chest and stomach. All the dressings were highly decent and fine.
The window was full of light. The light meant so many things: peace, love, knowledge and freedom - all blended into indescribable beauty. As to God’s appearance, He was a very handsome Father, glorious and majestic; full of authority, and yet simple. His nature was Love, Loving and Beloved.
"You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart," says The Almighty (Jeremiah 29:13)
The window was a very a big window. The width was about 24ft (about 10 times the width of a door) and the height was about 36ft (about 6 times the height of a door). God’s size was about 7 times 2 times the size of a full man. His hairs and appearance were like those of white people, and His hairs were as white as wool (white is the symbol of purity, peace, righteousness and goodwill). His appearance had the imprint of age (Ancient of Days), and yet healthy, lively and new (fresh).
And when He finished speaking with me, He looked upwards in the north-east direction and said, "I am the Ancient of Days." It was then that I clearly saw His hairs, which were as white as wool - pure white.
Compare this encounter with what Daniel said,
I beheld till the thrones were cast down, and the Ancient of days did sit, whose garment was white as snow, and the hair of his head like the pure wool: his throne was like the fiery flame, and his wheels as burning fire.
Also, refer to John’s account,
His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire; Revelation 1:14
I no longer believe the things Jesus said in the book of John, from the beginning to the end. I know them and they are true. Jesus Christ is not only my Lord and saviour. He is my brother, my friend and one with me. The Father and I are one. The same is true of yourself, the reader of this book, once you find God (not just born again).
The person created in God’s image and likeness is not the body (flesh) we see, for that is nothing but a corpse, which perishes. The real image and likeness of God is the spirit man, who indwells, wears and drives the body about. Image and likeness simply means that we are God’s Children: we are Small Gods.
But why come out of the grave? That is the power of resurrection in demonstration. Also, there are people who have been buried by their enemies, though they still live and move about like human beings. Such people if not delivered, face frustrations in this life and possible untimely death.
Sometime in late 2010, I attended a thanksgiving service at Grace of God Mission, Umunnachi. I was invited by a friend who wanted to present a new born baby before the Lord.
During the worship, the minister-in-charge, Pastor Chukwuemeka Ubah, prophesied that God was going to perform a special and wonderful event in my life. He said that the event shall take place before the New Year, 2011.
Later, I was on a 7-day prayer at a mission. It was during that prayer I encountered the Lord Most High, the Ancient of Days, whose hairs were as white as wool. Apart from this great event, nothing else spectacular happened: As a proof.
What Did God Call You When You Saw Him?
Did He call you reverend, apostle, mystic or saint?
Response: No. He did not call me reverend, apostle, mystic or saint. He called me, “My Son.” And I called Him, “My Father.” He is the only father we have in heaven and on earth. The person you consider as you earthly father is not your father, because the world is an illusion intended to nurture people into reality. He is your brother. Jesus said we must not call any person father on earth. All the same, our social relations remain valid for the time being, because majority have not known and experienced the truth.
Would You Like To Get Lost, So That God Will Seek For You Again?
No… Never. You need to see the love, seriousness and firmness of purpose with which He seeks for His child. His love is so good and wonderful that you would not like to see it wasted. No good and wise child would see the love and concern and wish to have them wasted again.
My Personal Encounter With God As Almighty Father
For over 30 years, I have heard of 'God', the 'Supreme Deity' or the 'Creator of Heaven and Earth'. Before, I used to wander what Angels mean by calling God, 'Almighty Father,' 'The Heavenly Father' or 'The Father That Lives In Heaven'. So many times I have heard them say those words, without my knowing what the words mean, until I encountered God as the Almighty Father.
For details, see
God is Almighty Father because He is unborn; the First, the Only and the Last; the Originator of Creation.
My Personal Encounter With God As A Consuming Fire
Spirit is Light, and Light is Fire! Even a Consuming Fire!
Can you imagine a person whose body substance is fire? He is red hot, burning, and radiating uncountable rays of light in all directions. Yet, He is Glorious in Appearance, Majestic in Simplicity and Loving in Action.
To know more about the Holy Spirit, study the light you see everyday. For more explanations, see Similarities Between Light And Holy Spirit
My Personal Encounter With The Mighty In Battle
In spirit, I was invited by a girl to their house to cast out evil spirit. I went with the girl over a very long distance. When we got to their house, the evil spirit did not allow us to enter. I turned and returned to my residence.
At my residence, while I was still within the compound, God came down from Heaven and entered my body. Next, we flew in the air back to the girl’s house. At the wall, we burst through the defense. I then saw the evil spirit where he lurked monitoring the girl and I. He came to me, and God breathed on him. He became powerless. Then he ran to his charms which were many, with some inside a drum. He started to invoke the charms, but lo, all were useless and powerless.
Lift up your heads, O you gates!
And be lifted up, you everlasting doors!
And the King of glory shall come in.
Who is this King of glory?
The LORD strong and mighty,
The LORD mighty in battle.
Lift up your heads, O you gates!
Lift up, you everlasting doors!
And the King of glory shall come in.
Who is this King of glory?
The LORD of hosts,
He is the King of glory.
God did not create weaklings as mankind. He made us strong, bright and mighty spirits after His own nature. That is why we are God’s children.
My Personal Encounter With The Invisible God
While I was in the Presence of Invisible God, I ascended from the ground to the clouds (sky). I could stand on the edge of a skyscraper without fear, and with out falling. I then discovered that the sky is not just a thin layer, but a very deep layer of clouds in various formations. The clouds are cool, calm and beautiful.
God is invisible. Also, He makes Himself visible. Some teach that God is always invisible (insubstantiality). Changing from visible to invisible mode is a very easy thing for God to do. I, the author, do change from visible to invisible mode as the need arises. Even the air, that fills the atmosphere, is invisible.
My Personal Encounter With God As Man
While I was sleeping, I heard God say that an enemy was coming. Then God withdrew Himself from my body. I saw my body lying down motionless on the bed, covered with a spreadsheet. Also, I saw God stand in the form of a man at head of my bed, while I stood about 5 meters from the bed.
The enemy came in with a knife in his hand to stab my body to death. He was being followed by three other persons, one of them being a headless body.
God breathed the first time, the enemy became motionless, standing still. God breathed the second time, the enemy sat down on the bed. God breathed the third time, the enemy fell down, prostrate, on the ground.
He brought out a knife and asked, “Should I stab myself to death?” A voice said, “Stab.” The enemy stabbed himself to death. The other three persons took the knife and stabbed him several times.
Ezekiel saw God in the form of a man. I bear witness that what Ezekiel said is true because I have seen the Lord in His human form, several times. Indeed, we have our human form after His image and likeness. He was first to have the glorious form, before we were created.
My Personal Encounter With God As Word
The ‘first time’ God spoke to me was in the 1980’s while I was at a Sabbath prayer house. His voice embodied His signature: His Name, His Presence, Himself, His Spirit, His Word and His Divinity.
I bear witness that the Word of God is God. “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” John 1:1
My Personal Encounter With God On The Mountain
We were on a prayer session. We had to go to a mountain top. After we started the prayer, the first Angel to come in our midst was Gabriel. He said he came to tell us what will take place during the prayer session.
According to him, “After I have gone, the first Angels to come in your midst shall be Michael and Kaira (Chaira). After their coming, the Heavenly Father shall come. Later, the last to come will be the Gentle One.” Before he left, he delivered other messages and ministered to people present.
Afterwards, He came the second time. He said, “The purpose of my second coming is to confirm my first visit.”
At the right time, Michael and Kaira (Chaira) came. Kaira is the Angel of Thunder and lightening. Their coming and presence was one of swiftness, gallantry and power.
Michael came to clear the way and pull back forces of darkness. According to visions, he sent a rock into the midst of the enemies. The rock exploded in the midst of the enemies, agents of darkness, giving us victory. Then, the Angels purified the environment.
Almighty God came down in our midst at 12.00 midnight, just as we were getting ready to start prayer. His personality was marked by simplicity, yet underlined by authority. His presence was marked by liveliness. In His presence, there is nothing like fear, shame or doubt.
He ministered to the needs of several persons. Also, He directed us on how we were to deliver a girl from evil spirits. We followed the instructions and succeeded. The girl later confessed that several deliverances had been performed on her without any success.
The Almighty gave us several messages, before He left. The messages were duly recorded and delivered to the appropriate authorities. The messages proved true. Among the messages were -
At the end of the prayer session, we were about closing the prayer, when the Gentle One (Jesus) came in our midst. “You are about to close,” He said. “Have you forgotten that I shall visit you people?” He spent time to minister to us, and gave instructions before He left.
Comment : Why Mountain Top?
Why is it that God is often encountered on the mountain top? There are several reasons for that.
One, the mountain top is holier than the ordinary ground. It is more natural than the low grounds, which are often disturbed by human activities. It is more of a virgin land.
Two, the mountain top is away from the cares, worries and distractions of everyday life. There is peace of mind, quietness and orderliness.
Three, the mountain top serves as a platform for addressing a gathering. Thereby, every person is enabled to clearly see the person speaking.
It is important to state that it is not on every mountain that people can meet God. You can meet God in quiet places that are holy, in your bedroom, even in your heart, etc.
Questions And Comments By People
- Where is the mountain top, and how can one get there?
The mountain is at Enugu, Nigeria. However, the land owner has refused further use of the land by the public. He said that he does not want churches to be coming to his farm. The only remedy is for the churches to unite and purchase the land from him. Refer to the case between David and Aruanah.
15 So the LORD sent a plague upon Israel from the morning till the appointed time. From Dan to Beersheba seventy thousand men of the people died. 16 And when the angel stretched out His hand over Jerusalem to destroy it, the LORD relented from the destruction, and said to the angel who was destroying the people, "It is enough; now restrain your hand." And the angel of the LORD was by the threshing floor of Araunah the Jebusite.
17 Then David spoke to the LORD when he saw the angel who was striking the people, and said, "Surely I have sinned, and I have done wickedly; but these sheep, what have they done? Let Your hand, I pray, be against me and against my father's house."
18 And Gad came that day to David and said to him,"Go up, erect an altar to the LORD on the threshing floor of Araunah the Jebusite." 19 So David, according to the word of Gad, went up as the LORD commanded. 20 Now Araunah looked, and saw the king and his servants coming toward him. So Araunah went out and bowed before the king with his face to the ground.
21 Then Araunah said, "Why has my lord the king come to his servant?"
And David said, "To buy the threshing floor from you, to build an altar to the LORD, that the plague may be withdrawn from the people."
22 Now Araunah said to David, "Let my lord the king take and offer up whatever seems good to him. Look, here are oxen for burnt sacrifice, and threshing implements and the yokes of the oxen for wood. 23 All these, O king, Araunah has given to the king."
And Araunah said to the king, "May the LORD your God accept you."
24 Then the king said to Araunah, "No, but I will surely buy it from you for a price; nor will I offer burnt offerings to the LORD my God with that which costs me nothing." So David bought the threshing floor and the oxen for fifty shekels of silver. 25 And David built there an altar to the LORD, and offered burnt offerings and peace offerings. So the LORD heeded the prayers for the land, and the plague was withdrawn from Israel. 2 Samuel 24:15-25
