On the Bridge with Jesus
by George Roberts
As I was in Oklahoma City with my daughter Jennifer awaiting the
doctor to come in the office to discuss putting her on the lung
transplant list, something very profound, but real, began to happen. I
was wondering why the doctor was taking so long to come in. Then it
As I was sitting there with my wife and daughter, the Lord Jesus
appeared to me in a spiritual vision. He was on a wooden bridge with
water flowing under it from a lake and the most beautiful mountains
imaginable were behind the lake. I saw grass that flowed beautifully
to the edge of the lake all around. Jesus was looking at me and said,
"Come on, come on to the other side of the bridge." He is beautiful
to look at and He has the most beautiful sandy brown hair and beard.
He was wearing a white robe with a golden sash around his waist.
Finally, but hesitantly, I went to him. He held me by my right
hand and turned and smiled so sweetly at me. All of a sudden I saw a
house big and beautiful with a small front porch. I love cats. The
Lord knows that. On the porch was a solid black cat and a gold and
white cat. He said to me, "This is your's; this is your house." We
spent some time looking at the house and then went back on the bridge
and sat down.
He just looked into my face with love I cannot describe. He told
me how much He loved me and I just was feeling my love flowing back to
Him. In the past, I had a lot of wrong ideas about the Lord. Mainly
because of all the woundedness I had been living with and lies that
were implanted in me as a child. A year ago I met a man who would
become my best friend. That was the moment my healing journey with
God began. He is now my intercessory prayer partner and his ministry
is called Safe Place Fellowship.
Largely due to the woundedness I had experienced in my life, I
asked the Holy Spirit to lead me to a place where I could receive
healing. I was 46 years old and on the verge of suicide. My prayer
partner explained to me that the Lord wanted to heal the wounded areas
of my life. I was more than willing to go as far as the Lord wanted
to take me in setting me free by His Word. As we prayed together,
memories surfaced which exposed the enemies implanted lies, His truth
was revealed in me, and I was set free. See John 8:32. I know I have
prayed over fifty times with Phil since meeting in November of 2003.
I have received a great deal of healing and I continue to do so even
now. Before this time, I couldn't even pray because I was so
depressed and really wasn't sure if God loved me or not. These were
more lies we had to pray through to get to the root problems. Now the
Lord is doing things with me like the above story. My vision, or
whatever one might choose to call it, however, was not yet over.
The next day, I was in our kitchen. My wife was there.
Suddenly, I began to feel the presence of the Lord and I said to my
wife, "Honey, that vision thing I had on the bridge with Jesus isn't
over." I then saw myself standing with Jesus in the middle of the
same bridge I had seen the day before. He took my hands in His and
began turning around and around in a circle like children might do
when playing. Jesus began laughing. I saw him throw his head back as
he laughed and laughed as we twirled around and around together.
After having this vision I have just described, My wife and I
visited a church that we had never before attended. Some will likely
not believe what I am going to say next but it is true. The vision,
the very same vision that the Lord gave me seated in the doctor's
office, was confirmed in that church. As I walked into this new
church, where we had never been, I saw a large painting in the front
by the pulpit. The exact picture on the wall was the one Jesus showed
me in the vision minus the house and two cats because those are mine
in Heaven awaiting me. I stood up and testified to the congregation
of my vision. A person asked me if I had ever seen that picture
before. I said, "I have never been in this Church before," and they
glorified God for what he had done with me. One lady said the picture
is a one of a kind and the bridge signifies crossing over to victory.
Jesus even gave me some lyrics from a well known song. The lyrics
are, "With 2 cats in the yard, life used to be so hard. Now
everything is easy cause of you." I was so amazed at what the Lord
had done for me, I wanted to share it. I believe the Lord gave that to
me so when hard times come, I can reflect upon it and it's comfort it
brings to me.
