A Divine Visitation
REVEREND GORDON WILLIAMS, NOVEMBER 2022
On October 5th, 2011, I had an unexpected meeting with Jesus. It was about 20 minutes to 8 a.m. while I was sitting at a table in the Food Court of the Eaton Centre in downtown Toronto, Ontario.
I was nursing a cup of tea and reading through a file in preparation for what I had hoped and prayed would be the final court appearance of a friend who had been falsely charged with threatening a former girl friend.
I was checking the file to make certain that I had not forgotten to bring the final requirement which was required by the Crown Attorney in the Old City Hall Court House in downtown Toronto.
As I was reading my way through the file, I was approached by a street person. His presence was announced by his strong and unappealing body odor. When I looked up from my reading his hand was held out towards me. He obviously had not shaved for several days. He was wearing a whitish, dirty coat that was much larger than his thin body and he was wearing beach sandals. From his emaciated face he said, “Can I get some money from you? I need something to eat. I’m God.”
Another street person jumped up from the nearby table where he was sitting and ran to my rescue. He had noticed that I was wearing my clerical shirt and collar and said, “Leave the priest alone. He’s busy.” I waved him away and said, “No, it’s alright!” He backed away and resumed his place at a nearby table.
It was then that I recognized the strange looking man that approached me. He had jumped right out of the pages of the New Testament! It was right there written boldly across my memory where Jesus said, “for I was hungry and you gave me food... Truly, truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of least of my brethren, you did it to me” (Matt. 25:35, 39).
I reached into my pocket where I had money and scooped it all out and dumped it into his hand. He carefully counted the dollars and cents and reached back and said, “This is all I need. Thanks!” as he placed the left-over 5 cents back into my hand.
Then as he began walking towards the nearest open restaurant, he turned his head to me and said, “I’m God you know!” I called back, “I’m sorry that I didn’t recognize you!” With a smile, he said, “Oh, that’s okay!” And in one of Jesus’ unusual visitations, I knew that He had just visited me through this man’s appearance” (Is. 53: 2).
When I packed up my brief case, I thanked the man who had tried to come to my rescue. He said, “Will you give me a blessing?” I paused and asked Jesus to bless this man and guide him today and headed for the Court House. It was also my assurance that all would go well in court at 9:00 a.m. And, it did. The charges were dropped and my friend was set free.
Many people are looking for “so-called supernatural visitations” but are not able to recognize them because they have never received Salvation or the Baptism of the Holy Spirit with the “signs of proof” (Mk. 16:17-18). They always seem to be looking in the wrong places...
“For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in... Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink?... “He will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.’” (Matt. 25:35-45)

"And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.”
"Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, let us use them: if prophecy, let us prophesy in proportion to our faith; or ministry, let us use it in our ministering; he who teaches, in teaching; he who exhorts, in exhortation; he who gives, with liberality; he who leads, with diligence; he who shows mercy, with cheerfulness."
1 Corinthians 12:8-10
"...for to one is given the word of wisdom through the Spirit, to another the word of knowledge through the same Spirit, to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healings by the same Spirit, to another the working of miracles, to another prophecy, to another discerning of spirits, to another different kinds of tongues, to another the interpretation of tongues."
"Ho, every one who thirst, come to the waters; and he who has no money, come, buy and eat! (Isaiah 55:1-13)
There are some things money can't buy; there is a thirst that ordinary water, wine, milk, coffee or tea can't quench; and there is a hunger that meat and bread can't satisfy. That hunger and thirst is for "righteousness". Righteousness is the innate desire for a right relationship with God.
"Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied" (Matthew 5:6).
We can be satisfied only after we have had our hunger filled by Jesus who said, "I am the bread of life; he who comes to Me shall not hunger, and he who believes in Me shall never thirst" (John 6:35).
We cannot buy our way into eternal life with either money or good works. When we receive Salvation (bread) it is a gift. We only need to repent (meaning turn from our evil ways) and ask Jesus to forgive us for our sins (Luke 24:47; Romans 10:9), and receive living water when He Baptizes us with the Holy Spirit.
The goal to getting a spouse, loved one, family member or friend saved (Rom. 10:9) is not to force them to church, but to get them introduced to Jesus Christ personally. The goal is to: "sanctify her (him), having cleansed her (him) by the washing of water with the Word" (Ephesians 5:26).
This does not mean to force the unbeliever to read the Bible; this does not mean to force anyone to go to church or nag the person to become a Christian; and this does not mean to point out faults and sins to force repentance (1 Cor 13:4–8).
"For how do you know, wife, whether you will save your husband [by leading him to Christ]? Or how do you know, husband, whether you will save your wife [by leading her to Christ]? Only, let each one live the life which the Lord has assigned him, and to which God has called him [for each person is unique and is accountable for his choices and conduct, let him walk in this way]. This is the rule I make in all the churches" (1 Corinthians 7:16, 17). AMP
