THE GOLDEN BOX

One day my wife told me about a dream of hers. In the dream, we were on a stage with Johnnie and Wanda. I was wearing a graduation cap and gown and was holding a golden box. I was apparently very proud of it because it had been a gift from Johnnie. However, she did not know the location or the reason we were there. This led to much speculation about what all of this might mean. So, we waited in anticipation for this special occasion to transpire but nothing happened. The golden box has remained a mystery to me until now.

 

After thinking about it for a while, I recalled a time when the four of us went to a Christian conference. It was the second day of the conference, and the pastor was closing it with a prayer. He asked everyone to join hands and Johnnie happened to be sitting next to me. As he prayed, I felt electricity flow up my arm from Johnnie’s hand. When the prayer was over, Johnnie asked if I had felt it. I said that I had, and we both looked at each other in amazement over what had just occurred. That was it. We left the conference together, and we never talked about the incident again although I certainly had received something from Johnnie that day.

 

In another instance, Johnnie shared with us that God was leading him to write a book. He had a yellow tablet in his hand that contained a five-page outline for the book. As I looked it over, I marveled at its completeness and organization. It inspired me, and I thought to myself that I should be doing this as well. God was talking to me again, but I just did not get it nor did anyone else for that matter. Before we left California for good, Johnnie met with me to tell me that in a spiritual sense he had already given me the box. I suspect that God must have told him to deliver this message to me even though Johnnie most likely did not know what he had given me. When he delivered the message, I thought that he was just embarrassed and wanted to bring the subject to closure. I went along with him because I did not want it to be a problem for him. But at the time, I still did not believe that he had given me anything.

 

It is funny how writing my book, “Possess the Vision,” has opened my eyes to what had previously been hidden. Johnnie had given me the golden box after all. If you have not already guessed, you are reading a part of it right now. He had placed in my heart the desire to write this book. It is a box because it contains an accumulation of the truth that God has shown me over the years. It is golden because it is valuable to those who read it. Thank you, Pat, for the prophetic message of the golden box. Thank you, Johnnie, for doing the will of God and for giving me a most precious gift.
