Today on college campus, one of my kids sensed something out of the ordinary. He sensed, a place on the campus grounds, that was light. Airy. Positive.
This ‘place’ didn’t stay in one area, but moved about slightly, within the general grounds of the campus.
This was very unlike the usual things my kids have seen and sensed on this public school campus. Usually, it is like walking among the living dead, within a future graveyard. (Their words, not mine.)
But today, there shone such…joy…there, that it caused one of my kids to go out and hunt it down. He wanted to see what was causing such glory to be found in such a usually dead place.
So He hiked clear across the campus, to where he sensed it was coming from. As they got nearer, he could see a very bright, clean, pure light. This light easily outshone even the sharpest ray of sunshine, yet was soothing to the eyes and his spirit.
As he came up to the light, he could see that the glorious bright light was actually caused by several angels clustered together in one area. He could see that the angels were guarding a group of people.
Before my son could say anything to these people, one of them turned to him and asked my son if he would like a copy of the New Testament and its Psalms and Proverbs. The person held out a small green booklet to my son, who took it with a smile and then said thank you.
My son looked around, and seen several of the others also handing out the New Testaments, and talking to the students about Jesus. He even seen one of the teachers there who happened to also be a believer, talking to them.
My son stood there for several minutes, just soaking up the peaceful atmosphere.
Then the people said it was time for them to say goodbye and go home. (It was just after the dinner hour.) So they left.
The angels and their light went with them.
When I heard about this, I gave thanks to Jesus immediately, pleased that this group of people were out there spreading God’s Word, and that the campus security did not kick them off the property.
Yes, I know that because the college is publicly owned, freedom of speech is supposed to be protected there. Yet with all the increasing stories of persecuting Christians as they go about sharing the Word of God, it lifted my heart no small amount to see such acceptance of them on my kids campus. Apparently, there is at least one public college that still allows the Word of God to be shared with students on their campus grounds.
It was also nice to see how The Lord Jesus Christ protects His children as they go out into the world to share His good news.
Thank You Jesus Christ of Nazareth!
