When people receive the gift of speaking in tongues, not everyone receives in the same way. For myself, I went to kids camp in my teens and was prayed over to receive what they called the “Baptism of the Holy Spirit” (Acts 1:5) I was supposed to feel the Holy Spirit come upon me, then speak in tongues. I felt nothing when they prayed. I was expecting some bolt of lightening to come down from the sky and hit me in a whoosh of the Holy Spirit. But they simply prayed, and I simply thanked Jesus like they told me to do.


However, an hour later as I lay in my bunk bed, little foreign sounding syllables popped into my mind. So, I spoke them with my head under the pillow. It was one sentence. My counselor told me that could happen, and to be faithful to practice my new language and it would grow. So that is what I did. I spoke my one sentence faithfully for about a year! To this day, I still remember that sentence.


Then one day I was driving to school singing a popular love song along with the radio, and the second verse was sung in French. So I started singing my own pretend “French” to the words. By the end of the song, I had a complete and wonderful language, only I didn’t know it! However, every time I sang that song I would sing it in my “pretend language” even when they were singing in English. It sounded so beautiful I didn’t want to sing it in English. Then one day I started singing other popular love songs of the day in the same way. Then the realization hit me, I was doing what the Bible called “singing in the Spirit”! (1 Corinthians 14:15) “Wow! Is this finally the expansion of my new language?” So I stopped singing and just spoke it. Sure enough, there was a full blown language!


I have received a couple of wonderful confirmations about speaking in tongues. One time I was praying in tongues and in English over people I’d met on the Internet and I saw a picture-vision of a flat bed truck driven by 2 angels. On the flat bed truck were a whole bunch of packages, each wrapped and looking exactly like the size of bricks. The Lord told me I was dispatching supplies. So I asked Him what those bricks were. He said, “Each individual prayer.” Then a few days later I listened to a tape where a man was given a vision that every time he spoke in tongues, he saw packages the size of bricks come down from heaven that were deposited inside of him. When they were deposited, he felt a strengthening of his inner man. He was praying supplies for himself. So, not only did the Lord confirm that my praying in tongues was praying in supplies to others, but at the same time, I was praying in supplies for myself.


I have an interesting story about praying in supplies for others. Remember that one little sentence I mentioned when I first received tongues? When I shared it with Anna, my Mom, who also had been indoctrinated against tongues, she said it sounded like Spanish and looked it up in her Spanish dictionary. She was so surprised at the meaning, she also sought and received the Baptism of the Spirit.


Twenty-five years after that, having completely forgotten its meaning, Anna happened to ask me if I still remembered my one little sentence. I spoke what I remembered and she again looked up the words in her old Spanish dictionary, and this is what she found; my sentence was translated, “Door of a port hole released. They eat with Daddy.” This was my commission from the beginning which birthed my book, 101 Ways God Speaks and How God Speaks.  I didn’t know I was repeating a request thousands upon thousands of times. I was bombarding heaven and didn’t even know it! I believe part of that fulfillment is the opened doors to a website ministry and also a writing ministry. It is a good lesson in the importance of tongues.




PIX: Wayne saw a picture of a wide flat plain with a porch and a door there, way out in the middle of nowhere. I thought the dry flat plain was an interesting connection to my old bull vision of the plain and also us throwing the javelins onto the plain, and my vision of Isa 35 desert. Right now I am listening to a tape series called the Back door to the throne room. In the tape series, it is about various leaders who go through difficult events just prior to their promotion. I felt these things were all connected and the following scriptures are quickened.


“The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the LORD, make straight in the desert a highway for our God. 4 Every valley shall be exalted, and every mountain and hill shall be made low: and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough places plain: 5 And the glory of the LORD shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it.” (Isa 40:3-5 KJV)


CONFIRMATIONS UPDATE: Elijah list posted on 3/5 and 3/6 about the portholes, from John Paul Jackson and Pat Cocking.



Many years ago you gave your life to Me and followed me into the dry desert of a thirsty and flattened land. The valleys in your life were raised and the mountains were brought low, your crooked places were made straight and the rough places were made flat. There you prepared a place for Me. And there you sang to Me and gave me your all. There you pursued until you lay still before My feet, spent in your exhaustion of pursuit. Oh My love, how you have touched My heart.


And now I have kissed you with My Presence and brought hope to life once again. I will raise you up. I will place you before the door, the porthole to heaven’s throne. This is a special door, for when you walk through it, it shall fulfill your every heart’s desire. I AM your door.


"But then I will win her back once again. I will lead her out into the desert and speak tenderly to her there. 15 I will return her vineyards to her and transform the Valley of Trouble into a gateway of hope. She will give herself to me there, as she did long ago when she was young, when I freed her from her captivity in Egypt. "In that coming day," says the LORD, "you will call me `my husband' instead of `my master.' 17 O Israel, I will cause you to forget your images of Baal; even their names will no longer be spoken. 18 At that time I will make a covenant with all the wild animals and the birds and the animals that scurry along the ground so that they will not harm you. I will remove all weapons of war from the land, all swords and bows, so you can live unafraid in peace and safety. 19 I will make you my wife forever, showing you righteousness and justice, unfailing love and compassion. 20 I will be faithful to you and make you mine, and you will finally know me as LORD. (Hos 2:14-20 NLT)






HEARD: Shaft of light.

HEARD: I heard a heart beating.


HEARD: What is it? It's a porthole. I am standing at the door.


VISION: I saw some electrical charges in the porthole and then I saw some fireworks in the sky.


John 13:23-25 NKJV

Now there was leaning on Jesus' bosom one of His disciples, whom Jesus loved.



Wanting continual access, you seek to hear and see and understand what I AM doing. Precious, I know how you strive to walk through the threshold of heaven's door, but always remember John, My beloved. He simply laid his head upon My bosom as he supped. He loved My heartbeat. He loved being close to Me. Learn from him, for in the intimacy of simply drawing close to Me, I will open the porthole for you. As you draw close, My Light comes and charges you with My power and strength. As you draw close, My promised liberty sets your soul free.


Gal 5:1-2 NKJV

Stand fast therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free, and do not be entangled again with a yoke of bondage.
