Bonus Chapter: God’s Red Pill

by Ellyn Davis

Have you noticed that lately there are a glut of movies and TV shows with superhero themes?  In the past few years there have been movies like Spiderman, Superman, X-Men, The Last Airbender, Thor, The Avengers and TV shows about “Heroes” and “Alphas” who have superpowers, just to name a few.

I don’t get my theology from popular culture, but it seems to me the fact that there is a heightened awareness of the supernatural even in society at large indicates that something’s up in the spiritual realm. According to the principle of “first the natural, then the physical” (I Corinthians 15: 46), we can sometimes look at what Hollywood’s doing to see the behind-the-scenes stirrings of what’s happening spiritually on both fronts—the good and the evil.

Other than the usual sit-coms and romance stories, the most popular entertainment themes right now are stories of unlikely heroes and villains. All superheroes have normal looking alter egos, but so it seems do all villains. We’ve got Peter Parker and Clark Kent, introverted geek-types who transform into Spiderman and Superman to fight evil. We’ve got Harry Potter, a “good” wizard who uses his magic to defeat the Dark Lord and his evil minions, and we have show after show and book after book about vampires and werewolves. And then there is the popular and (I think) spiritually insightful TV series Once Upon a Time about a town of people who have forgotten who they really are because they are all under an evil witch’s spell.

All of these movies and TV shows and books are pointing to a common human longing—a longing to be powerful. It seems like it’s within human nature to want to do “magic” and to have superpowers. Without trying to seem too mystical about it, I believe that innate longing to operate in the supernatural reveals something about our true nature. We were created in the image of God and it is in our spiritual DNA to want to be like Him in every way. Face it, God has superpowers, and because we are hard-wired to be like Him, we want them too whether we’ve saved or not.

The amazing thing is that God has actually given His people His power. He invested all power in heaven and on earth in Jesus and guess what? Jesus gave us some unbelievable promises about sharing that power. Here are just a few:

Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father. And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it. (John 14: 12 – 14)

Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, “move from here to there,” and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you. (Matthew 17: 20)

Those are pretty amazing promises.

Miraculous Power

I’ve lived long enough to see many of the “forgotten” I Corinthians 12 giftings restored to the church. Bless the Pentecostals for keeping the faith in those gifts alive for centuries before people in the mainstream church finally began speaking in tongues and prophesying and believing that God can heal the sick and even raise the dead. Just in my lifetime I’ve seen the Charismatic movement restore an awareness of tongues to the church, a deliverance movement, a prophetic movement, a healing movement, and an increasing emphasis on breakthroughs for Christians to begin operating in the supernatural power of God.

I’ve heard and read many teachings on the gifts of faith, tongues and their interpretation, words of wisdom, words of knowledge, discerning of spirits, prophecy and healing, but there is one gift that has always been left out or skimmed over—the gift of miraculous powers. I’ve been a Christian for over 50 years and I’ve yet to hear or read a teaching on the gift of miracles. Yes, every now and then I hear a testimony of some group of Christians who prayed for rain and a drought ended or prayed for a tornado to dissipate and the winds died down or I hear of someone who translocated like Phillip did. And I’m hearing more and more stories about people who visit heavenly realms and bring back information about the unseen, but those types of stories about the people of God entering different dimensions or affecting weather, wind, water, earth or fire, time, and space are few and far between.

Read it for yourself, the gift of miraculous power is in the book. I Corinthians 12: 7 – 11 says:

 Now to each one the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good.  To one there is given through the Spirit a message of wisdom, to another a message of knowledge by means of the same Spirit,  to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healing by that one Spirit, to another miraculous powers, to another prophecy, to another distinguishing between spirits, to another speaking in different kinds of tongues, and to still another the interpretation of tongues. All these are the work of one and the same Spirit, and he distributes them to each one, just as he determines. [emphasis mine]

When’s the last time you heard of a Christian speaking to a mountain and it moving? Or heard of someone standing on the shore with a tsunami approaching and quieting the waters with a “Be still!” like Judy’s vision in the introduction to this book? Or walking through walls? Or visiting heaven and bringing back a blueprint for some new invention? Or, for that matter, bending a spoon with their thoughts?

Because we haven’t seen these things, we tend to use them as figures of speech. We don’t take moving mountains literally, we talk about God moving mountains of problems or mountains of debt or something like that.

But I’m wondering if all this interest in different dimensions and in energy and how to sense it and manipulate it is ushering in the next move of God, which will be the common expression of the gift of “miraculous powers.”

We’ve believed for too little too long. I believe the time is coming where it will be commonplace for believers to have power over weather, air, water, earth, fire, time and space.

For the past 10 or 15 years I have heard Bob Jones speak about God raising up His “Dread Champions.” I used to not know what he was talking about when he used that term. Now I’m suspecting that God’s Dread Champions are going to walk in the gift of miraculous powers.

What does this have to do with sound, vibrations, energy and quantum physics?

I used to live near Oak Ridge, TN. Oak Ridge was established in 1942 as a production site for the Manhattan Project—the massive and highly secret U.S. government operation that developed the atomic bomb. It was one of four “secret cities,” dedicated to harnessing the power of the atom. At one time the whole city was surrounded by a high fence with guard towers at every entrance. In July, 1945 small amounts of Uranium 235 were carried from Oak Ridge to New Mexico, where they were placed in a nuclear bomb known as “Little Boy.” That bomb was dropped on Hiroshima, Japan on August 6, 1945. Three days later, a second atomic bomb was dropped on Nagasaki and a few days after that Japan surrendered, ending World War II. (Interestingly, 40 years before it was ever conceived in the minds of government officials, a prophet named John Hendrix prophesied the building of Oak Ridge and the part it would play in ending the war.)

America spent the next 40 years worrying about a nuclear holocaust. When I was little, an air-raid siren test went off at noon every day in Atlanta; radio and TV stations regularly scheduled tests of their emergency broadcasting systems; families were building fall-out shelters in their backyards; and schools held evacuation drills at least once a year and taught us to hide under our desks if we ever heard the air-raid siren go off in earnest. At the time, the whole planet was awed and terrified by the incomprehensible amount of power in the atom and the realization that the smallest known entity in the universe has enough power to obliterate our world.

A lot has happened since 1945 to ease our fears. The Iron Curtain fell, we have nuclear disarmament treaties in place and we’ve built safeguards in the event of a nuclear attack. But the awe and mystery surrounding the atom and the power of the invisible realm remains.

What is the substance of the invisible realm? Vibrating energy.

The Red Pill

If you study the history of modern science, you will realize there was a time when people believed the sun revolved around the earth. Copernicus was considered blasphemous for suggesting that the reverse was true.

And it wasn’t too long ago that people attributed diseases to “vapors.” Only heretics believed that tiny, unseen organisms might exist until the 17th century when Van Leeounhoek fashioned a primitive microscope and saw what he called “wee beasties.” But it wasn’t until the 1800’s that Ignaz Semmelweis suspected these “wee beasties” might cause disease when he observed that puerperal fever passed from woman to woman in maternity wards after examinations by doctors who had recently dissected cadavers. Semmelweis was ostracized for suggesting that doctors wash their hands and clean their instruments after coming in contact with cadavers and later was committed to an insane asylum. Semmelweis’s practice of disinfection in hospitals earned widespread acceptance only years after his death, when Louis Pasteur confirmed the germ theory of disease. This theory is less than 200 years old, but it has become the foundation of modern medicine.

Today the old paradigm we are having a hard time releasing is the paradigm of Newtonian physics—the paradigm of reality being what we can see, hear, smell, touch, manipulate, and measure with instrumentation. Observations, insights, and practices that don’t fit into the Newtonian paradigm of reality are considered “paranormal.” But remember, it’s just been in the last century that we have developed quantum physics and the atomic bomb as well as discovered the Schumann Resonance, magnetoreceptors in the beaks of birds, brainwaves, and the electromagnetic field of the human heart.

This book has just touched the tip of the iceberg of what is being discovered and sensed about sound, light, energy, frequencies, and vibrations. There are mysteries of God that we are only beginning to delve into. It’s as if our current understanding of the way the world works traps us in a Matrix-like reality and we need to wake up to what is really going on all around us.

If you haven’t seen the movie The Matrix, you should. (Don’t waste your time on Matrix 2 and 3). The thesis of the movie is that there is a world outside of the world we think is real and we’ve been programmed to not see that other world. In the movie, the hero is given a red pill that opens his eyes to what is really going on.

My hope is that this book will be like a red pill that allows you to wake up to deeper understandings of God’s reality.

  1. I haven’t read the book yet (just received it in the post) but am so aware of quantum physics and mysticism already. This is partly through meeting people who have been into the heavenly realms (for example, http://www.companyofburninghearts.com & http://www.glory-company.com) and partly due to a long history of spiritual mapping and prophetic activity where speaking out what God (literally popping qwiffs) says to me/us has changed the Land. I’ve enjoyed the privilege of working with a group where we’ve had feedback from local news, stories and individuals as we’ve walked the land and spoken out God’s word.
    However, we’re hungry for more – we love the Lord so much and so want him to enlarge our hearts to use the miraculous powers he’s given us to advance the kingdom in whatever way he wants at that time.
    I am convinced this is the way the Lord is taking those who’re hungry for it and want to walk in this stuff. One thing, on Saturday night, a bunch of us were soaking in the glory and praising God – I had a vision of glory seeds pouring through the heavenly spheres down onto our planet – the angels had bowls and bowls of these seeds – we need to plough up the ground to help the seeds take root… The following day the Lord sent me (via NASA on Twitter) a picture of a globular cluster – it’s very close to what I saw in my vision – here is the link… http://go.nasa.gov/KqJGxS Awesome!
    Blessings on you – so looking forward to reading the book.

    • Jane, thanks so much for your inspiring comment. I hope you really enjoy the book.

    • Rebecca says:

      Jane, Your Nasa picture is what the Lord took me up in the heavens years ago and told me the lights were where the real church resides and, sad to say, I noticed none of them were on church buildings but on individuals everywhere.

  2. Hi Ellyn, just finished reading the book – God was all over me while I was reading it, and confirmed many things I was feeling in my spirit.

    He started speaking to be about sound about 5 years ago, and for a whole year I had to pray ‘the sound of heaven’ over my family even tho I didn’t know about quantum physics then. Then about 2 years later I heard a message from David van Koevering and that changed my life.

    Unlike many christians the supernatural does not scare me – I came out of a shallow occult background – and so quantum physics just makes so much sense to me. One of the areas God has spoken into my heart and confirmed many times is that he would use me to speak into situations in people’s lives and hearts and be a catalyst for change. While reading the book today He told me that what I am in fact doing is ‘popping people’s quiffs’ – speaking those things that be not as though they were and altering their reality. That revelation blew me away. I also totally get the whole concept of God’s time as opposed to our definitive timeline of past, present, future. So exciting. I have been a christian for 23 years and I have been waiting all that time for this season that is now beginning.

    I am blessed to have Pastors who have a passion to see holiness returned to the church along with signs, wonders and miracles and they preach and teach on it all the time. I think though as you have said that people like them are few and far between.

    Re the heroes – I agree. I was thinking about this very same thing the other day. People are looking not only for heroes to believe in, but somebody who will give them hope – and that is only Jesus. What is happening in the natural is an indication of what God is doing in the supernatural. He is getting the earth ready.

    • Hi Fiona. Thanks so much for taking the time to comment. We do live in exciting times. Like Bobby Conner says, “The veil between the earthly realm and the heavenly realm is thinner than ever.”

  3. Hi Ellen.
    Exciting to read Fiona’s comments. One thing we learn as we pop qwiffs is to be careful to say only what Papa tells us to. I find that if I don’t, spmething unexpected is likely to happen. You mentioned that Manhattan project and that’s a good analogy. We can be like children playing with an atomic bomb if we aren’t careful and wide with this gift Papa has given us. He has entrusted us with an incredible gift and I have seen things change as a result but this incredible revelation needs to be used wisely – and I have seen things go wrong… We in the UK fsced a serious drought early this year and I believe someone popped a qwiff over the weather. Sadly, I don’t think theu put either a time or power limit on it and as a result, the jet stream moved south and we have been inundated with rain tbroughout the year causing horrendous flooding. The onky time it didn’t rain was during the Olympics – when thousands of other Christians were praying for good weather! I can’t prove we need to have the mind of Chrust on how we pray. He always has the correct perspective on any topic and will give it if we ask… Blessings.
    Jane

  4. That should have read “I can’t prove it but we need to have the mind of Christ…” Sorry. Phone playing up a bit!
    Jane

    • Ha ha. I know about phones acting up! Thanks for you comment. I, like you, have often wondered if we were like little kids playing with power like it was a toy, never really understanding what we were setting into motion.

  5. Jane almond says:

    I think it is a twofold perspective I have. I rejoice at God releasing the revelation to the Body and equally, I am not fearful because I trust God to cover us, but equally I don’t wish to presume upon his grace…! I feel awed but secure as we try out the gifts he’s given us be they ever so powerful! Mountains will move and weather patterns change but we must understand what he would have us do. To quote Kris V (probably a bit inaccurately but you’ll understand my meaning), “I want to know the mind and heart of God so well, he will do what I ask”. We are beginning to see what was upon Smith Wigglesworth upon a generation. Papa is good!

  6. Tony Marquez says:

    I have confronted and stopped a deadly tsunami as I was led by the Holy Spirit. I’ve called on snow half a dozen times last winter. Each and every time it came like clock work three days later. There is a protocol and strategy to this which involves certain ranks and kinds of angels and the body of Christ, few or many depending on the circumstance. I saw the Yosemite fire weeks before hand and felt somewhat helpless that the best I could do was facebook a call to pray about Ca. fire season and safety for the crews. How do you warn people about something that hasn’t happened yet? I’ve got to believe that the Lord is training me in these areas to equip others. It’s teachable stuff. I feel frustrated hearing how some day we’ll speak to the storms. Some day has arrived. At present I’m part of my local church’s prophetic prayer team. How does an unknown hard working family man who sees visions of inventions, revival in distant countries and realms of glory make a difference? Well, God is not perplexed so we’ll see.

    Ellyn hi
    So glad that God has brought this book across my way. Will order it still, but over the last year i have known that God is preparing me for something new, something awesome, something that at times i felt people will think i am crazy! It had to do with electromagnetic fields, quantum physics and us and everything in the universe being ‘one’ and therefore the control we have over it for Gods glory and as His Instruments here on earth. It is still formulating. I was a bit wary of it and knew that there is a level of intimacy with God where this manifests and i am standing right at it. A place with no limits, no time….a place in God he has ordained for us. I am humbled and awed. And now, also realise i was not going crazy. Thank you.
    I also am relieved that i could now mention this to someone.
