Gold Dust from Heaven

I was recently (at the time of original posting in 2000) privileged by God to see signs and wonders the like of which I have not experienced before in my life as a Christian. It seems that the Lord is now doing very unusual things which simply don’t have any physical explanation.

What I am about to share I witnessed with my own eyes, together with many hundreds of other Christians jammed into the church hall of Holy Trinity Anglican church, Brussels, in a meeting organised by Pastor Raymond Vanderput of CCB.

We first heard from a lady who was a leader of a movement of intecessors in Brazil. Apparently God used her to start a revival in a part of Brazil. There are over 200,000 people listening to her weekly radio broadcast and it is just one of the things God is using in a nationwide revival in the land of Brazil, where it is now estimated that 35% of the population has turned to Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. This has happened because of the way God is answering the prayers of multiplied millions who cry out to him day and night in that country.

Another lady, Silvana, testified of how God helped her. She was terribly sick for 12 years, with cancer of the blood and numerous other horrible conditions. Her body was already entering into putrefaction in parts, no one could stand the smell. Yet somehow she remained alive in this condition for some time. Finally someone told her about Jesus and told her to get down to an evangelical church where they would pray for her. She did this, and was anointed with oil in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Not only was she totally healed and given new internal organs, but also God began to do very strange signs and wonders through her body. We watched in amazement as suddenly she shook her hair and a cloud of gold dust came down. This was not some cheap trick though – it happens in Brazil and in many places around the world. The gold has been analyzed by chemists to be a mixture of 24 karat gold and platinum. I have some of this gold dust on the pages of my English Bible at Psalm 150. Many others got little samples of this gold dust.

There was no specific prayer for the sick in that meeting. Yet I have heard of many people being healed at that time, including a friend of mine, an English missionary pastor, John Jupe, who I prayed for previously for the healing of his knee. Although he told me it got better after I prayed for him, it wasn’t until that night that his knee was completely healed and he is now walking long distances without pain – something he was previously unable to do.

Also, one Belgian pastor, who I understand was not particularly believing concerning these manifestations of gold dust though he saw it along with the rest of us, was surprised by God when he got home. As he looked in his bathroom mirror he noticed a glint of something in his mouth. Upon closer inspection, he was surprised to find that God had given him some gold fillings (there were three if I remember correctly) during the meeting which simply were not there before.

I had heard reports of things like this happening in Argentina and places like that, but here it was happening in Belgium (!), a land which, sadly, is full of atheism and unbelief.

This wasn’t all. Silvana prayed and anointed many of us with oil, and I have seen that this gold dust has started appearing on the faces of a number of us from time to time, without any warning. The day after the meeting, having taken a thorough shower in the morning, it appeared spontaneously on my face while at work the next day (I am working as a computer consultant at the time of writing). This manifestation was pointed out to me at work by a female colleague who happens to be an atheist, and it gave me a good opportunity to talk about Jesus to a few colleagues. I also saw this gold dust on the faces of a couple of pastors at various times – even last night (29th May, 1999) on the face of a young Romanian man leading an all-night prayer meeting I attended. So wonders never cease …

It may seem odd, bizarre and strange, but God is doing things like this in our times to draw attention to Jesus Christ. My prayer for all my readers is that they will seek after Jesus Christ and his kingdom in these last days, and fully put their trust in Him.

What do YOU think?

  2. I’ve heard of this and other phenomena, but never seen it. If it’s of God, I’m all for it. If it’s not, then I’m against it.

    My only question is, where are these people spiritually, say, a year later? If they are closer to God, devoted to His Word, serving Him and loving others, that’s awesome. If, however, they have become fixated on the manifestation of gold dust and similar things, that’s bad.

    • michaelsachin says:

      Hi edp….I testify to this occurance. I had experienced gold dust appearing on my face and hands when my eyes were opened for the first time in life and i understood that God is interacting with me and bringing about a transformation in my life….i understand this to be a part of biblical scripture where Jesus says in Revelation 3:18 ( I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see )
      Life has been wonderful so far 🙂

    • very wise reply. Also let us not forget that most revivals started from a deep conviction of sin.

  3. Here is a confession: I have spent literally hours and countless hours of my life Googling healings and related gifts.

    Every time I Googled a certain popular healer (can I mention names, here?) Anyway, his initials are B.H.. And the result were consistent, I read endless testimony after testimony of people who went to his meetings sick, with various health ailments, and their sad story was in the end they came home sick as ever, only broker, too. Many of them report that these individuals died of the very sickness they went to get healed.

    Folks, this is serious business, here. This man. and all others of his ilk, are using the precious name of our savior, Jesus, and dragging it in the mud. He is getting the hopes of millions up, only to have them end up with a worse broken heart than ever before. I don’t know if you can see the seriousness of this, but I can guarantee that God does. It is a grave matter indeed. What he is doing is more than just a crime in the spiritual realm, it’ an outright felony!

    And there are others in this crowd. Some (At least one) have been openly exposed on national TV for using radio headsets to obtain “words of knowledge” about those they purport to heal. It’s a shame and and open DISGRACE to the name of Christ Jesus!
    I’ll put it another way. They make us ALL LOOK BAD. Sadly, they reflect on the body of Christ in a very negative light.

    So, I had resigned myself to thinking that maybe no healings are taking place, anywhere, today. Oh yes, the Google button again, you can find copious opinions that the healing gifts have “passed away” and are just not for today. Same thing for speaking in tongues, etc.

    Um, let me tap these doubting people on the shoulders, and ask this: “Who are you to tell Almighty God what he can and can not do today???” Why should He jump into your little box?? Have you people ever read the book of Job? The last part of Job makes it abundantly clear that God does just about whatever He jolly well pleases in the earth, and he does NOT need our lilliputian approval, no matter HOW learned it may be.

    But, I regress. All this Googling, and all this reading of these consistent, DISMAL results for true healings today had me quite depressed.

    But I persisted on. Well, my assiduousness FINALLY payed off, because recently I struck Google gold! I FINALLY found some ..no not some. I found plenty of genuine healings, most of them bordering on the miraculous. I finally found some places where God is doing for REAL what the fake healers are taking money for, but leaving people broke and empty and sick.

    I found the genuine, and guess what? It surpasses the counterfeit in degree and quality! the genuine is stellar! The counterfeit is mundane. Remember, in the old testament that God’s snakes ATE Pharaoh’s snakes??? Well hallelujah! I had not remembered that, until the Lord just brought it to mind about three seconds ago, so I guess that is His way of letting me know I should tell you that.

    Anyway, YES. God does indeed heal today, and he does indeed do genuine miracles. He is STILL God and he has not changed, just like His word promised. I would say, one just has to be fortunate enough to find someone whom God will honor as far as having a ministry along these lines. Sadly, some sick people search all their lives, and end up trying to get healed at a place where only the counterfeit is in operation. And as I said, many of them actually DIE. My brethren, this ought not be!!!

    That is sad beyond human comprehension.

    So I started meditating on this, and I asked God “Why? ” If the gifts are genuine and for today, why is it that certain men, like B.H, send people home still sick and broke, while across town, another brother is operating with the genuine gifts and people are walking out miraculously healed? Aren’t you God everywhere???

    Well, this is what I believe God is showing me: the Bible clearly says many times that God DISTINGUISHES or differentiates between the righteous man and the evil man,… God SEPARATES light from darkness.

    What I am beginning to believe is that God will HONOR certain vessels, and simply, other vessels He will NOT HONOR.

    Why? Well, I can only say, God sees the man’s heart. If the man has a heart full of greed, lieing, thievery, deception, robbing the innocent and preying on the gullible, why SHOULD God honor that?? Why would God honor or be complicit in a lie??? If the man is out for his own gain and his own fame and glory, why would God even consider participating in that?? He is certainly not obligated! In fact, He would then become a PARTNER IN CRIME! And that is totally incongruent with His Divine, Holy character!

    I think..I HOPE I am onto some truth here.

    More to come.

    Anyway, all this is my opinion. I’m open to correction, if I err.

    The names have not been changed to protect the innocent.

    • warrior daughter says:

      I have seen genuine healing but they were not done on television but in the local church….No one took credit for the healings but all the glory went to God…They came about when people who have a great love for the Savior and for each other prayed and believed that God was in charge and no mater what the outcome it was for the best of the one prayed for….
      I have also seen those want the healing so bad that when it did not happen, that they became bitter and God had to deal with that bitterness….

    • sonja Henderson says:

      I would like to share my brother’s story with you… I don’t even know how I got to this page today but I’m glad that I did. Just last night I had decided to write his story down; and then I come upon this page…. That is God.

      My brother Spencer Henderson II (deceased October 20, 2008)of Lung Cancer. Diagnosed June 2008. Non smoker…

      In October 20007 my brother (a healthy 230lb, Cincinnati policeman) was taking a shower and he said he heard a voice telling him his family was in danger. You would have to know my brother to know he didn’t believe in the alien, supernatural stuff… He was a Christian…

      After he heard the voice he said it was neither male nor female just a voice but strong… It continued to tell him his family was in danger…. Then he said he started having a vision of my mother putting holy oil on our heads in the mornings before we would go to school when we were little and then she would say the our father before we would go to school every morning. This is what he said he was seeing. Then he seen each person of his immediate family his four children and his wife, even himself. He said immediately following that experience lots of voices filled his head telling him that he was stupid and what was he going to do become a preacher now and saying a lot of evil stuff…. He said he started laughing because he knew right away it was satin and his demons and he had to do what he was told. He left the shower and went to get the holy oil. He tried a Catholic church and they wanted to give him holy water, he told them no he was told to get Holy Oil…. After he got the oil from a different church he anointed each one of his family member in the order that he seen them in the vision and then himself ……saying the Our Father prayer. He then went the same evening on a Thursday and in October and prayed for his oldest son (19) that was staying in the job core. He did the same thing.
      He explained that he didn’t like telling this story to anyone because people would think he was crazy….
      During his journey trying to find the oil… and again when he was driving to his son …. he said the demonic voices were saying terrible things and trying to convince him that what he was doing was not only not important but not real. He said the voices were many and all talking at the same time.
      After he prayed for his son … He said that he felt free and happy and surprisingly the voices stopped. He had an awesome faith in God and his word.
      exactly seven days from the day that he prayed for his family that Thursday night…. His oldest son Spencer Henderson III, had three major strokes(at least that’s what the doctors call it because they are not all clear about what it is) simultaneously or right behind each other. When we arrived at the hospital he was like a new born sleeping. One doctor wanted to put him on the psych ward saying that he just shut down. Because he was just laying there… not talking not needing anything, his vitals were normal, his breathing, he just wouldn’t wake up. If you touch his face he would slightly move away from the touch if you persisted. Once we told the doctors that Spencer was not upset about anything and was happy… another doctor looked at his brain scan and said there was something in the back he didn’t like. After careful review they moved him quickly to ICU… noting that he had, three massive strokes… His body was not distorted and his face was normal, within 7 days each day he came around more and more… moving from opening his eyes to laughing to trying to talk to being able to walk very slowly to the bathroom to going home in a WEEK…. He has some slight speech problems but plays basketball and looks normal… He has told me that he has some problems with writing and getting out what he wants to say and even some weakness on one side… but here is the kicker… the Doctors said the way his brain looks and the location of the “strokes” for the lack of better words …. He should have been dead or a vegetable… My brother knew instantaneously when we arrived at the hospital why God told him to anoint his family … God healed his son…. the reason that the doctors are torn about weather or not it is “strokes” or not is because its… Nothing! God healed him and they will never figure it out… the problems that he has now are so slight that if you didn’t know his story you wouldn’t know anything was even wrong at all.. And they are things that he can recover from 100% with therapy and time. God is good. Satin was mad because my brother did what he was told to do and he afflicted him with Lung cancer the next year…. Spencer acknowledged that he knew why … He asked God to spare his life but, never complained or said why me … he trusted God through his pain but was excited… listen EXCITED about knowing he was going to see God.. He said he had done what God had asked him to do and got his family in church and they were safe… He increased his wife’s faith in God and I believe he is in heaven…. His son’s life is a miracle and there are many more that I could share thank you for listening…

      • Thank you Sonya,

        This is a precious testimony one which presents the true Gospel. Jesus works healing today through his Spirit as through previous times! Equally important is the testimony of your brother’s illness and departure to Glory; for our bodies are but a tent which we shrug off when the Lord’s call arrives.

        Share your testimony widely, for by such witness Satan is defeated and the Gospel established,

        Maranatha,

        Peer!

    • DougW, yes, you are definitely onto truth here, but the truth goes even further. Firstly, the recounting of the snake story. Yes, God’s snakes ate Pharaoh’s snakes…BUTNOTICE…Pharaoh WAS able to produce snakes! What I am saying is that the devil can also provide healings, simply by removing his demons from a person’s flesh. This is pretty deep for some people, but it is true.
      I do not think the healings come from the righteousness of any man, because any righteousness we have comes from God, but rather from the mind and purposes of God Himself. He knows things we do not know. He also can see into all hearts. Some people only seek the hands of God, (healing) but not His heart. Some people only want what they can get from God without giving Him their heart. He alone knows and He alone will decide how and who and when healings will be given. For every action in this world there is a reaction. God alone knows if it will be for the ultimate good if a person is to be healed or not.
      We have to trust God. There will never be a formula nor a pattern to what God does. He alone is God. Praise Him!

    • Hey Doug:

      Michael, the owner of this web site has seen many many healings in his ministry over the years. Maybe he’ll jump in and post a comment about them?

      I was healed of a bleeding stomach in 1990. I didn’t even ask for it, it just happened. I couldn’t eat any spicy food, pizza, drink OJ or anything like that because I snorted so much coke that it ate my inner stomach lining. I’d be on the ground in a fetal position sick as a dog brother if I ate pizza.

      Anyways…one night at church while my Pastor was preachin away, he stopped and said “I believe the Lord just told me there are maybe 2 or 3 people who have a bleeding stomach or you’re spitting up blood. If that is you, raise your hand and God will heal you right where you are”. I raised my hand and I felt this heat shoot right down my right arm and deposit itself right in my belly. After church I went and ate a plate of jalapenos. I never took tagament again. Ever! I can eat anything I want. No problem. Case closed.

      Praise God!

      • All I can say to that testimony is glory to God!!!

        Now I want to give a testimony. When my son Jonathan was a toddler, he fell down a flight of stairs and hit his head. This threw him into epilepsy. He started having petit mal seizures.

        The doctors gave him a leather helmet to wear and we had to keep him on Dilantin. He developed dark circles around his eyes.

        Well, this turned into a long trial, the gory details of which I won’t go into here.
        But one night we took him to a church, and he went up front and the preacher prayed for him. They turned him around and bless God, the dark circles had completely vanished!!!
        He then began to O.D on his medicine, because he no longer needed it.

        He has not had seizures since.

        God healed him and I give Him all the glory.

        So come to think of it, I DO believe in healing! I had just simply forgot. Thank-you brother for reminding me!

        Now please pray for my other son, brothers. Something wicked happened to him this evening, and he is starting a long trial.

    • JustAGuy says:

      Doug, wonder who BH stands for. Can you give us a Hinnt?

      Blessings and Peace,

      • I don’t know if it’s acceptable or proper on this site to name names. So I’m taking the safe path.

        Bro Doug

    • JustAGuy says:

      Doug, had to answer that dilemna myself after a very carnal man was used of God in very miraculous ways. Consider the picture of Michaelangelo with the hand of God reaching down and the hand of man reaching up – but not quite touching.

      A man of God is there to intercede. “Father, here is your child…” as he makes known the request, “Child, here is your God…” as he exhorts and edifies and comforts with the Word of God that applies to the person’s situation. The pastor is the middle man. Yet it is God and the one seeking God who are the ones who seal the deal. God honors the faith of the seeker as the seeker comes sincerely to God.

      The pastor who takes any credit for that, or implies he has a special ‘anointing’ is open to delusion and sin is at the door.

      Blessings and Peace,
      Timothy

    • Ok…….I’m gonna quote someone that will throw the whole bunch of ya in the ditch. Hang on.

      Yep……Mr. BH himself, which is short for Benny Hinn. I know….I have more issues with him than Eli Lilly has pills but……I have learned a few things from Benny regardless. Ok? Stay tuned.

      Benny said that thru out his crusades many long term saints would come to him after the service and ask him why he thought they were not receiving their healing when they stand on scripture and claim what they believe is theirs from calvary?

      Ok? Fair question, right? Sure. Here’s men and women who been walkin with the Lord for decades on end and they’re not seeing the physical manifestation of healing in their body. They asked Benny why?

      Benny says he went to the Lord and inquired on their behalf. He said “Lord….why do I see sinners who don’t know you healed at the crusades yet people on my staff, ministers and their families and other saints do not get healed? Why?

      Benny said the Lord told him that the sinners healed at the crusades were healed by mercy but that saints are healed by covenant.

      Hmm? Think on that for a moment. Is there truth to this? Does this make Biblical sense?

      I have been pondering this for several years and I keep coming back to it. How do I activate the covenant God has made with me for healing? What factors are involved? What role do I play? What role does God play?

      Does this sound like it fits my testimony of being healed of a stomach disorder? No it does not. I did not ask God to heal me but he did it anyways. Ahhh…but wait…..I was a baby christian, only born again for 2 or 3 months. Does God heal baby christians on mercy? Does God heal people sovereignly?

      Hmm?

  5. Is it important whether it is of God or of the Devil. Nevertheless, it tells us that spiritual warfare is real.I believe that only the person will know whether it is of the Father or of the Devil. And as for us, watching and hearing…can only judge the word and the experience of others. And tried to understand God or may be the Devil to others. I believe the power of our God..He heals,He is capable of anything on earth and heaven. No one can stop Him or limit Him what he can do.In the bible, Peter walks on water…because He believe. Only if you believe in Him and His work, can we experience with Him and walk with Him …whether there is gold dust while you walk with Him….whether He heals you, you know in your personal experience that He is real and He is in you. Isn’t that is enough then chasing after Gold rather than God himself? The only danger lies when we hunger for physical experience then chasing God Himself.

    • Christopher John says:

      There is no judgeing of others from what I can tell. Its not to me hard to beleave that Gold dust would appear, God made the earth and he made gold, heavan is explained as gold peral gates made with seven precious stones.

      It was man who turned hold into money, but before it was money it was just another gift from our father, as the air we breath. All things of love are from the Lord who is God. Where evil cannot exist for the love is so strong. he himself said I have come to give you love in abundance.

      People are not really being led by gold into the beleif of god. there being led by God into the gift of faith. Gods love is of that pure as gold, gold is pure and a pure soul can form the dust of gold as the kingdom of god is in us all, who the would not our bounty be pleanty.

      It was said by John Woolley, I will open heavens window and pour on you so much heavenly blessing, that you will not be able to use it all.

      Evils only and SOLE ONLY task is to stop man from advancing his soul to god, and gods love is so strong that even that fails so often under the light of gods pure love.

      Remember this quote “The devil is a liar” allways hold to that when he trys to tell you that the things of god are of his own evil doing. for they are not, and his only purpose is to lead you to doubt and fear that most precious gift.

      But I know you wont let that happen, you faithfull lovers of the most high, he lives and reigns and he has won.

      He has won

  6. Reba Savage says:

    I have saw with my own eyes after my nephew was in a car accident, and laying in a coma, gold dust all over his body,at first when his Mother told me,I thought she was in shock and feared she was losing her mind, I was afraid to go in and see him but when I did I saw for myself, then when we went outside I even saw it in the walls of the hospital, and in the sidwalks, I knew it had to be a sign from God, but it has always been there in the back of my mind,thats why im here to see if this has happened to anyone else? My nephew came out of the coma.Still not sure and dont trully understand, but who am I to question a miracle or at least in my mind thats what it was.

    • mattie ramos says:

      Hello. Is Gold dust from God or a “lying sign/wonder” from the enemy? Kindly advise. Thank
      you and God bless you!!!

      • warrior daughter says:

        Find me a Scripture concerning people being covered in gold dust, gems, oil, fowl feathers or stigmata …Nowhere will you find a Scripture with any of these phenomenons….You will find in in Psalm 17, 36,57, 63,91, being under the protection of the shadow of God’s wings but this is symbolic…It has been discovered in several of these phenomenons that they were deception done by man……..It will not be signs/wonders that will cause man to repent and be saved but by the preaching/teaching of the Word through the Blood of Jesus Christ….What is happening in the church world today, if Scripture cannot backup the phenomenon, then it is best to disregard as not from God….The Bible is a measuring stick, rule, our lamp, guidline ect for us and not signs/wonders……Remember Pharoah’s magicans could do most of the same signs/wonders that Moses did ………

        • Not too sure I can claim that signs and wonders do not cause people to repent when I have seen it happen. I’ve seen plenty of sinners become born again after witnessing and being in the presence of a strong move of the Holy Spirit. Some people will not act on the word but are motivated when they see God move on people in a powerful way.

          I agree that God’s plan for salvation centers on preaching of the word. You are correct. However, God does confirm Himself in signs and wonders and this confirmation can really throttle some hardened unbelievers. I am serious. Keep in mind that public tongues is not for believers but for unbelievers. I took an unbeliever to church and he had heard the word preached plenty but when a person in my church spoke in tongues he was startled. He turned to me and said “wow..that was God wasn’t it?…I can feel the power”. This lead to his conversion.

          Anyways…….I have heard testimonies of people getting new teeth in the shape of crosses and that’s not in the Bible but the people who told me witnessed it and they are credible christians (missionaries). God reserves the right to move in any fashion He pleases to confirm or leave a lasting impression on someone. I’ve never seen gold dust but it may well be God. I think what is critical to ask is how does the phenomena effect the person? What kind of result occurs? If it draws the person to the Lord then likely it is Him. I admit there are counterfeits but Satan is not going to do anything to draw you closer to God.

    Aloha Michael,

    My name is Michael Perry, and I am a youth Pastor on the Big Island of Hawaii. We just got done with a youth leadership camp it went from Nov 28th – to the 30th 2008. During one of our adult classes towards the ending of the class we closed in pray, and when we did their was one adult that was battling with demons, so we was prompted by the Holy Spirit to pray for her. So we did and let me tell you we were battling against the enemy 2 hours later we conquered. Here’s the cool thing the next morning as us leaders was eating breakfast we noticed that all of us had this gold looking sparkles on our hands, arms, and faces it looks like glitter. Which brings me to this letter, I have never personally experience this so I looked on the internet and found your article. Thank you

    • I WAS CLEANING AT MY CHURCH AND WHEN I GOT TO THE SEATS TO DO THE VACUMING I WAS NOTICING LITTLE “SPARKLE” ON THE CHAIRS,

      I THAN ASKED MY HUSBAND IF HE COULD SEE ANYTHING,AND SURE IT WAS THERE THAT HE COULD ALSO SEE IT.

      LATER I WAS READIND IN MY BIBLE I WAS NOTICING A LITTLE BIT WAS THERE TOO…

      COULD THIS BE “GOLD FROM GOD”!?!

      THANK YOU AND GOD BLESS
      YOUR SISTER IN CHRIST,

      • In the end of January 2008 I was burdened with a spirit of prayer. I felt as though my heart was broken over the ineffectiveness of the Church in America. (myself included) There is a lot of talk but very little power. In scripture is reads Paul was determined not to come with words only but with a demonstration of the Spirits power. So that their faith would not rest in the wisdom of men but in the power of God. I was weeping in prayer over the American bride of Christ. Then when I went to church …my 10 year old son and I were worshiping God on our faces on the floor. Well my forehead was stuck to the floor (by the power of God and all I could say was HOLY HOLY HOLY
        son’s hands were covered with gold red and silver sparkles.
        By the end of the service we showed the Pastor ..by then the only color that remained was the gold…That in itself was so unusual that the 2 other colors were absorbed.
        On the drive home (it is an hour to church) there was a special drunken glory in the car.

        Honestly…Todays American church rests on the words and wisdom of men and not power of God. We are way to familar with a God we barely know. Why would he pave his streets with Gold and build his city with gems. This sign and wonder clearly is a signature of God.
        There is a blanket of unbelief over the American church. Be cleansed.
        make them uncomfortable.

    hi:) regarding the issue of gold dust, i saw the lady from brazil in person and was absolutely astonished:) the prob was as i grew in wisdom and knowledge of God i found i have the right in Jesus to judge all things through his word! and no where does it state that any person in the word ever had gold dust… it also no where is promised to us that this wil occur! what the bible does say however is in the end times we wil be deceived by false prophets! and if there is no prom of any such post from Jesus… my mind refuses to believe t- also… ppl must never focus on the gold dust, which many ppl wil! jesus never cam to bring gold, he came to bring eternal life! the gold was analysed by a south african university and found not to be gold! i urge all followers to be wise and not believe all ppl standing in front of them:) God bless you all

    • Michael Perry says:

      Aloha again,

      This is Michael and yes I am fully aware of the false prophets and the end times. For the issue of the gold dust I am not worried at all what it is and what it can be that is not the issue. I just want all to know about the Glory of God and what our Lord is doing. Thanks again.

      Doesn’t it say (in the bible) that when Moses came down from the mountain his face was shining from The Lord’s presence? When the new testament speaks of Stephen, how he was stoned, that his face was shining with The Lord’s presence? If someone experiences a miracle, a miracle that in The Lord’s eyes is common place, and you condemn the miracle…. Are you condemning the work of God? Are you sure you want to do that?

  9. This was a report I heard at the time, about the analysis. I do not know if it is true. Actually, I don’t think it is real gold myself.

    These kinds of things are currently happening in the church pastored by Clark Taylor in Brisbane, one of my friends here tells me. But they don’t excite me any more one way or the other. I hope people are enjoying God’s presence, fellowship with God and one another. That is more important.

  10. I just read an article about Silvana in which it was stated that a sampling of the dust from her hair was taken and analized in Washington D.C and found to be glitter. You have stated in this article that you also had it analized. May I ask where? Is it possible to get a copy of the report?
