Now there was a certain disciple at Damascus named Ananias. The Lord said to him in a vision, “Ananias!” He said, “Behold, it’s me, Lord.”
Before Dean received the Lord Jesus, it was commonplace for him to see spirits and talk with them. There were many demons under his control and he had even had encounters with Satan more than once.
The widow the Lord used to bring him to Christ was no novice in the things of the spirit herself. She had had angelic encounters several times. She had also had encounters with the Lord Jesus more than once.
So after Dean accepted the Lord Jesus, many demons were still appearing to him and threatening him to come back, but this his neighbor could help him through this period without any fear because, like him, she was no stranger to the supernatural dimension.
In today’s Bible verse, we see that a certain believer in the early church had an encounter with the Lord Jesus in a vision. These kinds of supernatural encounters were commonplace in the early church. Angelic encounters were not strange. So much so that when Peter was arrested and the church was praying for his release, when he came to them in the night and a lady in their midst said he was at the door, they all assumed she merely had an encounter with Peter’s angel (see Acts 12:15
It was not strange for Paul to say things like ‘the angel of the Lord appeared to me and said…’(see Acts 27:23
), or for Peter to say ‘the Lord said to me in a vision’ (see Acts 10:10-14
, 28), or for Phillip to say ‘the angel of the Lord said to me that…’(see Acts 8:26
Go into today remembering that Christians are supernatural and not natural people. Every sign that Jesus said would follow those who believe in Him are supernatural signs (see Mark 16:17-18
). Ask the Lord to remove every stronghold in your heart that hinders the supernatural dimension.
