From Elisha to Louis

This is a story of how God still moves. So a few weeks back Louis, Myriam (a Saint-Marc staff member) and I were sitting together, praying for all kinds of stuff, reveling in the goodness of God and working through some tough questions together. Louis had been experiencing some visions and sensations from God that We were really trying to understand and interpret.

At one point it popped in my head that what Louis had been seeing was similar to Elisha, a prophet of God from the old testament. I told Louis this and he said that he didn’t really know that much about the old prophet. Then Louis told us of another vision he had roughly a week prior. Hopkins, the head of our transportation department had been headed to Port-au-Prince to drop some people off at the airport when he got caught in traffic because of some gang violence in the area; he had been stuck for a while waiting for the problem to resolve. While this was all going on, everyone on campus in Saint-Marc gathered to pray for the safety of Hopkins and company. During said meeting, Louis had this vision where he saw an army of angels surrounding Hopkins’s vehicle protecting them. Louis only shared this vision with Hopkins’s wife at the time, but there in that meeting with Myriam and I, Louis brought it up again.

After I heard this, I was freaking out. Louis had just shared of a vision almost Identical to one Elisha had in 2 Kings. Wayyy back then, Samaria, the capital of Israel was being attacked by the Arameans, there were loads of enemy chariots and men ready to take and capture Israel, but Elisha had no fear. He was able to see into the spiritual realm. What the enemy forces didn’t know is that there was a much larger army of angels with their “Chariots of fire” protecting Israel. Elisha saw this truth, Elisha had a vision, and so did Louis. This does not have a whole lot to do with the ability of either Elisha or Louis, but the way that God does not change. He is still moving the way that we see in the Bible. Are we open to hear these things? Are we open to see?
