My Radical Encounters...by Mr. Payne contained accounts that he shared as his testimony and that's how I embraced it. Personally I have been allow to experience these in few occasions not as the frequency of the authors. I do know that they can come in two forms, Spiritually and in Human form "once their feet touch the earth". They are for in my case warnings, protection and to reveal themselves IF the Lord allows it. Many persons do have encounters as Mr. Payne shared and everything seen is allowed as God sees for His purpose at the time. I have only converse with one that manifested in a hospital by a great Flash of light it was for my protection. Many people will not be able to wrap themselves around a lot shared and when persons do share you can be sure God's ear is right there listening. Names I have not gotten but one, because I asked when this angel and yes she was a woman, walked me safely out of the hospital. The only part that I didn't receive was the comment that Jesus and Michael were equal if I remember right in anointing, because God does say He does not share his glory. However, I leave that in the Lords hands and in no way calling Mr. Payne a liar, it's my point of view. I think with discernment we draw our conclusions but as myself I cannot be the final word on how others experiences. I enjoy the accounts and I read them as testimonies shared. I have seen angels and not so good angels because God open my eyes at the time to see, both personally in my home and in Church that I visit and I don't always know why. If I was to share the encounters I had they are not at the level as Mr. Payne but I have seen them and heard them singing as a choir in a short vision. I seen them leading out of a dorm where there was a fire. I had been ill and pass was carried and sent back, "it was not Your time" was what I was told, yes they are real and I was carried and saw things going up speedily. Even though these several times in seeing them, I really don't seek them out, but I do ask the Lord for permission in prayer to dispatch them to guard my home, and others have seen them but not me, at least those in particular. I confirmed it though, I get the scream part. I really enjoyed the McDonalds account and the tissue. People who love the Lord and seek the giver above the gift will see God move in their lives. The only requirements is relationship with God, respect for God, Jesus as our mediator and the Holy Spirit who follows through as our promise as comforter. Angels can be encounters are true, I had only one human encounter and they knew I knew because of the things that transpire. They are all around us and some you don't see, but you can sense their touch, size presence when the Lord allows it in my case. I can see Mr. Payne loves God, it was very touching how he described how he would love to be his personal helper. I use to say to my relatives I willing to shine the steps with a cloth I do anything no job to small for me. It's the heart for the Father that you can appreciate the things Jesus allows you to see and appreciate even corrections and I have had them. I thought it was a nice read as when persons share these things it's really a service they are doing even though God gets all the glory. If you wish these experience "pray" seek, ask and knock, God touches those who desire to know such things, He is awesome and transcends time and I have been allow to be transported three times in one night to see end times, and the angel there was huge and I trembled and wanted to be taken back home, it happened between bottle feedings of my new born I will never forget that. Thanks for what you shared Mr. Payne.
I've only recently begun reading books by Matthew Robert Payne. He is a prophet from Australia that has been used of God to share what he hears and sees in the realms of the spiritual realm with others who are interested to learn about these realms, too. This book is a testimony of encounters that Matthew has had with angels of different types and classes. I have only seen an angel one time in the physical realm who was just as real as a human being, who shook my hand and gave me a $20 bill after my wife and I had sung at a Full Gospel Businessman's convention in Georgia. I had by faith given all I had in the offering that night, and before the evening was over, this event happened. When I turned around again to find him, he had disappeared! Matthew shares several encounters with angels that will encourage faith. God protects those who are His and provides for them in times of needs. This is a good book and an easy read in Matthew's down to earth style.
Wow, amazing encouragement and encounters! Though I myself have had no encounters with angels, it has stirred a desire to do so. I have friends that also interact with angels and the fruit in their lives is excellent. Is it a prerequisite to have these encounters with angels to give you a Godly character, absolutely not, however experiencing the spiritual realm will definitely make a person more mindful that this physical world is not all there is. I give this 4 stars because it just was not long enough, I would have enjoyed reading more!
It's a small work. But full of love. I laughed , I cried, and at one particular point --I felt some righteous indignation. I really felt for Jesus. This is a must read. I didn't put it down until it was finished. I also bought 8 more books by Matthew Robert Payne. I will buy the rest soon. I WENT TO HIS WEB SITE AND GOT A PERSONAL PROPHECY for myself, my two daughters and my son. They were all SPOT ON!!! This man will be internationally famous and used by YAHWEH. He will be too busy then for all these prophecies, so you better get one now! Can't wait to get to the next book. I bought some on Kindle and some paperback. I like to hear my books, so I hope Matthew will one day read them on kindle. Bless you Matthew! 😁 These also would make great gifts.
The book is delightful, like having a friendly chat with the author as he tells you of his encounters. The writing style is a bit different for me, in that he gives a brief summary of the chapter, shares the encounters, and closes with brief thoughts on each encounter. The overall thought after reading this book is a thankfulness for the author's humble heart, childlike faith, and wondrous testimonies. So to Matthew Payne, I say "thank you sir!" for sharing with us.
I couldn't put this book down! I thoroughly enjoyed it. And I believed every word in it because it witnessed in my spirit. I am so excited about reading all M R Payne's other books. You will be so blessed by this book and you will not regret your purchase. If you interested in God's Kingdom,you will enjoy it immensley. Remember, God is spirit.
My Radical Encounters with Angels by Matthew Robert Payne This book is an amazing canvas on which the writer paints of an intricate yet intimate knowledge of Angels along his life’s journey. The book is rich with subtle details of his conversations with Jesus, whom Matthew knows and loves dearly. This is not the first Christian book I have read on Angels, so as I read the book with my own background knowledge, what’s strikes me most is how the events unfold and draw Matthew in to a deeper love and respect of his savior. I’ve listened to some of Matthews videos on YouTube, and then read his books, it is fun, as I read, to actually hear his “voice over” in the accounts his shares. At my first reading of the book, (it is more of a booklet, to be read more than once) what I was left with was my own desire to press in more to the heart of Jesus. What a radically fun book; read it and share this thought provoking book with a friend!
