127. Jesus Christ Appeared to Me

My dad would bring home monthly issues of Scientific American when I about seven years old.  This was an atheistic magazine with excellent articles on science. It always had an article on evolution which was total nonsense to me that I ignored. But the rest of the magazine was about the atoms, how cells worked, how plants and animals lived and grew, and about the sun, planets and stars. I read it from cover to cover and I remember closing the magazine with a sense of awe that there had to be an infinite intelligence that put everything together to make it work.

 

As a result of this atheistic magazine, I grew up believing in God. When I was twelve I was delivering newspapers, and a Great Dane crashed through a screen door and bit me on the upper leg. My parents, being Christian Scientists, prayed for me and did not take me to a doctor. The wound became infected, and after a few months I had gangrene that stunk with what looked like gravy festering out of it. It got so I could not walk, and one night I was so weak, I knew I would die that night. My dad came into my bedroom and said, “I’m sorry, Bob, but you have gangrene and in the morning I have to take you to a hospital, and they will probably have to cut your leg off.”

 

Dad started reading to me from Science and Health with Key to the Scripture by Mary Baker Eddy. But in my exhaustion I did not listen to him, knowing that I was dying. Then I had a vision in which my dad was a lawyer and God was sitting at a bench with a robe on like a judge. Then God picked up His gavel and banged it on the bench. He said, “Your son is innocent, and I will not condemn him to death.”

 

I told my dad he could quit reading now; I was going to be healed, and wanted to go to sleep. As Dad left the room, he looked back at me with a quizzical look. The next morning I woke up completely healed with all the gravy soaked into the bedding beside me. After that, I prayed to God often, but He never answered a prayer until I became a Christian.

 

When I was thirty-seven, I was standing in my bedroom crying. I had prayed for the past seven years for two things: the freedom of the nations that were enslaved under Communism, and the success of the electron beam Van de Graff energy converter that I was working on. I said, “God, I have been praying to You all my life and You have never answered a prayer. I’m reaching out to You, God, but You are not reaching back to me. Tell me, God, how can I reach You?”


Something caused me to look behind me. There on the shelf was a Bible that I had not looked at in seven years. I know it was seven years, because that was when we moved into our house and I put the Bible on the shelf. I picked it up, blew the dust off of it, and opened it at random. The two pages were blurred, except for one verse that stood off the page in bold black print. It said, “And Jesus said, ‘I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father, except through Me  (John 14:6)”.

 

I said, “That’s great, God! You just answered my prayer. Now I know that in order for me to reach You, I have to go through Jesus. But I don't know how to reach Jesus. Tell me please, God, how do I reach Jesus?”

Again I opened the Bible at random, and again the two pages were blurred except for one verse that stood off the page in bold, black print. It said, “Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens up to me, I will come in to him and sup with him, and he with Me” (Revelation 3:20).”

 

I said, “You mean you’ve been standing there all the time, asking to come in, and I didn’t even know it? Come into my life, Lord Jesus.”
 

I expected a shock to go down my spine like I had seen on Oral Roberts shows on television. But nothing happened. “So I said again, “I am opening the door, so come into my life, Lord Jesus.” Nothing happened..

I said, “Lord Jesus, I know You were put to death on the cross and that You came back to life again. If You came back to life, You must be alive today. And I know that You never told a lie. So You must be standing at the door now and asking to come in. So please come in, Lord Jesus.”

 

Nothing happened. I said, “Lord Jesus, You don't know how stubborn I am. I am not going stop asking You until You come into my life.”
 

It was about a forty-five minute drive to work, and for two weeks, while I drove to work and back home, and at every other time that I was not busy doing something else, I was asking Jesus to come into my life. After two weeks, I was half-way home and stopped at red traffic light. I bowed my head, and said, “Lord Jesus, please come into my life.” I looked up to see if the light had changed, and Jesus was standing on the hood of my car!

 

He said, “My foolish child. You said I never told a lie. If I never told a lie, I came into your life the first time you asked me. So you can quit asking me now. I will never leave you nor forsake you. You will think I have left you, every time you turn your back on me and do things your way. But whenever you come back to me and seek my face, I will be there, waiting.”

 

My drive the way home was a complete blank. I don’t know if I drove on the wrong side of the street or drove through stop lights. All I could remember was getting out of the car in my driveway, leaving the car door open and running into the house. I fell on my face on the floor crying, and said, “Lord Jesus, whatever you want me to do, that is what I want to do.”

 

Later when I asked the Lord to tell me what He wanted me to do, He said, “RECEIVE.” I took me years to figure out what RECEIVE meant, but most of what is in this book is what the Lord taught me and I received.
