When I felt complete despair during the darkest moment of my life, my wife and I were going everywhere to seek healing. We looked to Western Medicine, Chinese herbs, and healing evangelists, but nothing seemed to work. But one Sunday, a pastor in a small Charismatic church associated with Global Awakening received a prophetic word for me, and God told me through him that “I will have a child” and “the quiver is full.”  The pastor said it could mean I may have more than one child.

 If you are familiar with the Bible you know that this phrase refers to Psalm 127 verses 3-5 which says, “Behold, children are a gift of the Lord, The fruit of the womb is a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior, So are the children of one’s youth. How blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them; They will not be ashamed when they speak with their enemies in the gate.”

 I also received another prophecy from a Christian woman I met at a Voice of the Prophets meeting in 2006, and she saw a vision of me with a quiver on my back, and there were three arrows in it. And I also received many other prophetic words around that time about having sons, but I ended up having a daughter who was born in February 2017. I had been attending an evangelical church for over 14 years, and I received a lot of training about the Bible and Christian life, which I truly appreciated. However, I was also amazed by the gift of prophecy and the power of the prophetic words. I took the five levels of Prophetic Classes with the Christian Prophetic Certification Program by Global Awakening, and I received my certification in 2016. One of these classes is on Prophetic Evangelism, and I am eager to develop my prophetic gift to preach the gospel and comfort and encourage the saints to build up the body of Christ.
