In March 2007, I went on a ministry trip to New Zealand with Joshua and Janet Angela Mills.
Prior to that trip, Joshua had a ring stolen from his hotel room while on a ministry trip in Phoenix, Arizona.
It wasn’t any ordinary ring – it was an “inheritance ring” that had been given to him for his son, named Lincoln, by Janet’s father. It was a very expensive diamond ring and Joshua was heartbroken when it was stolen.
While in New Zealand, Joshua had a vision where he saw a house in Phoenix that belonged to the person who stole the ring. He made a conscious decision to enter the vision and he saw his son’s inheritance ring lying on a table. He picked it up and when he came out of the vision, he was holding the ring in his hand. He literally took back what was stolen – his son’s inheritance!
THE BLOOD AND THE OIL
After recovering the ring, Joshua Mills was preaching at the church in New Zealand and his text was Luke 17 about the lepers being healed.
As he was preaching, he felt the palm of his hand fill with blood. Then, it changed to what looked like bright red glitter. As this was happening, the person I was sitting next to had oil start dripping from the palms of her hands. We were all in awe at the phenomenon that was taking place before our very eyes. Many were healed and came to the altar for salvation that morning.
We headed to the pastor’s office immediately after this amazing service and both Joshua and Janet began to cry as they recounted the following story to me. Prior to our trip to New Zealand, Joshua had gone to “Miracle Valley” in Arizona to participate in a tent meeting there. Miracle Valley is where AA Allen held miracle meetings during the Latter Rain Revival. While there, an angel had appeared to Joshua and told him that he would receive a “blood sign” and it had to do with Passover.
After the blood and the oil appeared that morning in the service, I read in Leviticus 14 that lepers were healed by both BLOOD and OIL. (Joshua was preaching about the lepers being healed when the sign occurred.)
I also learned from Paul Cain that AA Allen (whose campground Joshua was at when the angel appeared) used to receive BLOOD and OIL on his forehead. (Paul even sent me a picture of it!)
Then the disciples went out and preached everywhere, and the Lord worked with them and confirmed His word by the signs that accompanied it. (Mark 16:20)
THE BLOOD AND THE GLORY
In Billye Brim’s book entitled The Blood and the Glory, she said that the revelation of the blood was something that was foundational in the Latter Rain outpouring. She said that the revelation of the blood and the revelation of the glory go hand-in-hand.
Billye Brim associates the Latter Rain outpouring with both the Azusa Street Revival (which began on April 14, 1906) and the Latter Rain Revival (which began on February 12, 1948). The inheritance ring that was restored belonged to Joshua’s son, Lincoln. Abraham Lincoln was born on February 12 and was assassinated on April 14! I don’t believe it’s a coincidence that these two revivals began on the anniversary dates associated with Abraham Lincoln, and the inheritance ring belonged to Joshua’s son named Lincoln.
According to Billye Brim, the revelation of the POWER OF THE BLOOD was a key to the outpouring in both the Azusa Street Revival of 1906 and the Latter Rain Revival of 1948. We hosted two conferences in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, on these Revival dates prior to the conference in New Zealand in 2007. (“Northwest Revival Fire” on April 14, 2006, and “Quantum Glory” on February 12, 2007). We were contending for the glory that they experienced in those two Revivals to be restored.
After the “blood sign” appeared that morning, Joshua and Janet had to leave to catch a plane. I was speaking at the church that evening. During worship, we heard a shofar (trumpet) sound come through the sound system when no one was blowing one in the natural.
I remembered that Roland Buck, who had angelic visitations and wrote a book entitled Angels on Assignment, had an encounter with an angel where he was told that “the message of the atonement is a tremendously powerful and liberating message for Christians. In this day, the final message before the call of the trumpet for us to come higher is the one of atonement.”
On the Day of Atonement 2002, Bobby Conner had an encounter that was a continuation of an experience he had in New Zealand a few days prior. In that encounter, he saw a door and written in gold were the words
“The Gateway to God’s True Glory.” A voice said, “Look you have entered the door of Jeremiah 33:3. Call unto Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know.”
In the book of Joshua, they crossed the Jordan River into the Promised Land on Passover. (In Miracle Valley, Joshua Mills was told the blood sign he would receive had to do with Passover.) I believe we’ve “crossed over” and are in the beginning stages of a Revival that will far surpass what they experienced in 1906 and 1948.
Lambs were slain every year on Passover for 1,500 years before Jesus (the Lamb that was, that is, and is to come) was slain on Passover. There is wonder-working power in the blood of the lamb! We need to remember the benefits of the Atonement:
“He forgives all of our sins and heals all our diseases.” (Psalms 103:3)
