1810. Occurrence given to Raymond Aguilera on 19 January 2005 at 3 PM

I have been working very hard and long hours lately, and as I was driving home from the office supply store I felt like I was going to fall asleep behind the wheel of my pickup.  When I reached my house, all that was on my mind was; you need to get some sleep.  Well, I lay down on my office couch and did everything I could think of to fall asleep, but nothing worked.  So I began to say the Name of Jesus over and over, hoping it would help me fall asleep.  That did not work, so I began to pray in tongues.  Then the Lord's Presence filled my office and the Lord began to speak to me. 

The Lord said, "You are My Elder."

I was shocked, and a red flag came into my mind.  What does this mean I said to myself?  What is going on?

So I asked the Lord, "What is an Elder?  What does an Elder do?"

Then the Lord said, "An Elder is.  An Elder is.  An Elder is".

I said to the Lord, "All that people are going to say is - He is a self proclaimed, Elder."

Then the Lord said, "It does not matter what people say!"

Then the Lord's Presence left my office.  (over)
