A voice said "knock on this door"
« on: June 29, 2020, 08:53:57 pm »
I began work in a Salvation Army drying out centre in London and when some of the young salvationists heard they had a Pentecostal in their midst they became very excited. They knew their history how that in the beginning the Army besides clothing and feeding folk and putting a roof over their heads it was also a mighty soul-winning movement.

They decided to hold a prayer meeting in the young sergeant's room and invited me along.

When I arrived there were 5 of them lounging in various positions of ease. One was sitting on the floor lotus style, another had one leg draped over the arm of his chair, still another was stretched out on the bed. They were going to get the Holy Ghost.


I said "what would happen if there was a knock on the door and the Lord Jesus walked in?"

It freaked them out "I'd be under this bed quicker than you could say Sally Anne ....I'd jump out the window ... I would lock myself in the loo" but then they got serious and when they thought about it they said we would kneel down and worship Him.


I said okay let's do it, faith is a fact but faith is an act the bible says "when Jesus SAW their faith ..."


So we all knelt down and raised our hands and called out to the Lord "Lord we love You, we are so happy to be in Your presence, we wish that You would bless us in a special way" it started off a little mechanically but pretty soon our hearts were melted and we really were worshipping  and the mighty presence of the Holy Spirit filled that place.

Then there came a knock on the door.

They all looked at me aghast, it was so real, they  thought it really was Jesus knocking at the door.

I jumped up and opened the door and there was a great big gauche yorkshire lad, 17 years old, at the door. He had stolen a woman's purse and run away to London and the Army was looking after him until his case came up. He said in his broad yorkshire brogue "I don't know why I am here, I was passing by and a voice said "knock on this door."


I grabbed the startled youth's arm and yanked him into the room "we know why you are here" I pulled him down to his knees and said "call out to the Lord to save you" and we resumed our worship and he joined us. "Jesus save me, come into my heart too"


He became a beautiful christian and the first of quite a few at that place who got saved. We witnessed the Lord doing wonderful things to confirm the gospel we were sharing. And God didn't just use us but He started using some of the more senior officers who had been a little skeptical about what was going on.


Yorky joined us down Leicester Square on our soulwinning, he didn't know much but he would go up to people and say in broad yorkshire "Jesus loves thee tha' knows ...
