Hello. My name is Anita. I am 89 years old and a resident of California.
In early 2012, God awakened me in the middle of the night and said: “You are to write a book and call it An Agent of God.” He then told me to write my experiences of living and walking a God-directed life. I had never considered myself an “agent” but when I looked the word up in Webster’s Dictionary and read: “One who is given official power and authority to act on another’s behalf,” I thought it was the exact description of my seventy-plus years of walking with God and being led and taught by Him.
I gave my heart to the Lord Jesus Christ in 1941, when I was sixteen years old. At that time, I read my bible occasionally, went to church when I could and tried to lead a moral life. It was a superficial walk and I knew even then that God was requiring more from me than the little piece of myself that I gave Him so I made a vow to God. I promised that I would totally commit my life to Him and serve Him with my whole heart if He would keep me and watch over me until I was on my own. I was aware that God did keep His part of that vow and I experienced many blessings that I knew I did not deserve.
In 1948, I became very ill with a bronchial lung condition, which my doctor said was incurable. I was not aware that God was trying to get my attention. One afternoon God clearly spoke to me and said, “I HAVE KEPT MY PART OF THE VOW YOU MADE BUT YOU HAVE FAILED TO KEEP YOUR PART. IF YOU DO NOT COMMIT TOTALLY TO ME NOW I AM GOING TO REMOVE MY HOLY SPIRIT FROM YOU.” I knew that without the Holy Spirit I would not be able to dwell in Christ and be drawn to the Father. I ran into the house, knelt before God, asked Him to forgive me for not keeping my vow and asked Him not to withdraw His spirit from me. I repented of all my sins and asked Him to create in me a clean heart. I also gave my life totally to Him for his perfect will. I vowed to study and pray daily and be regular in church attendance. Most of all I vowed to be ever faithful to Him. I made Christ the Lord and Ruler of my life and it was the best decision of my life. He healed my lung condition instantly and promised me two things: IF I WALKED UPRIGHTLY BEFORE HIM HE WOULD SHARE WITH ME THE GOOD OF THE LAND AND A MARRIAGE THAT WOULD NEVER BE BROKEN. I have since lived my life totally to God for His use and His service. He has kept all of His promises and has done exceedingly more than I thought or dreamed. EPHESIANS 3:20 Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us.
I have seen miracles and experienced many gifts of the Spirit to fulfill the Lord’s call on my life. At this time I will not go into detail regarding all of His purposes, different calls to service and the miracles He did. Suffice it to say, He has given me a number of prayer ministries: He led me to the YWCA for a few years where He did wondrous miracles, including the saving of souls, perfecting the Body of Christ with His gifts in evidence, and healing the sick. The Lord also led us to open supermarkets and a bible bookstore for the winning of souls. My husband even built a prayer room in the supermarket where many souls found solace in Christ and had their lives changed. My great love in Christ and the Father was and is intercession for souls, inner healing and healing from sickness.
For now, I want to tell you how the Lord brought about this website. In 2002, God began to give me prophecy concerning a new work He was going to do. He said it would begin with a small prayer group that He would bring together. Then He told me I had to be “ordained” and I called Dr. Glen Puder, a well known retired Presbyterian minister, whom I had known for many years. Dr. Puder lovingly said he would prepare an ordination service for me and on September 19, 2002, he received us into his home in St. Helena, CA. He performed a beautiful ordination service with the apostolic laying on of hands, and the anointing of the oil of the gifts of the Spirit. My husband, daughter, son-in-law, and Dorothy Puder were the witnesses.
The Lord informed me on my return that as of Tuesday, September 24, 2002 I was to hold the first prayer meeting. I invited three people and God supplied three more. We felt it was providential that we were seven in number because seven is God’s perfect number. We have had a Tuesday meeting almost every week for the last two years. We have not tried to increase the number because God called us for a certain purpose and we must be in one mind and one accord. However, God has increased our number with those of His choosing and we are assured that these saints are intercessors for Him and are eager to take on the burdens of the whole world as God leads. Immediately God began to dictate to me lessons of edification, exhortation and comfort for our prayer group through the prophetic gift. Recently, we have been aware that God was calling us to give these messages to a wider audience. Already I feel the excitement of what God is going to do..…. ISAIAH 55:11 so is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.
On June 15, 2004, the Lord spoke in regards to His purpose for the website and the ministry He would raise up:
PSALM 118:23 the LORD has done this, and it is marvelous in our eyes. 24 This is the day the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it. OUT OF NOTHING, I AM CREATING A WORK FOR MY GLORY. I CALLED YOU TO BECOME ONE WITH ME THAT I MAY USE YOUR HANDS AND VOICE IN THIS WORK AND SHOW FORTH MY ENDLESS LOVE. I WILL USE THE PRAYER GROUP AS UNDER-GIRDING FOR THAT WHICH I WILL RAISE UP. YOU WILL START A WEBSITE UNDER MY DIRECTION AND ANOINTING TO SPEAK TO THE LONELY AND DISILLUSIONED, THE ONES THAT HAVE NO ANCHOR FOR THEIR LIVES AND ARE DRIFTING ENDLESSLY AND THOSE THAT ARE SEARCHING FOR ME. YOU CANNOT GATHER THEM, BUT I WILL GATHER THEM TO THE TABLE I HAVE PREPARED WITH MANNA FROM ON HIGH. FOR THIS REASON I HAVE CALLED YOUR WEBSITE, “MANNA FROM ON HIGH”. THIS WEBSITE WILL BE ANOINTED WITH YOUR TEARS AND PRAYERS FOR OTHERS. IN THE NATURAL, THERE IS NO WAY FOR THEM TO FIND THE WEBSITE, BUT THEY SHALL BE DRAWN TO IT IN ANSWER TO YOUR PRAYERS THROUGH MY SPIRIT.
I, THE LORD, KNOW WHAT TO SAY AND HOW TO SAY IT TO REACH THE UNREACHABLE. I WILL ANSWER THE CRY OF THEIR SOULS AND DRY THEIR TEARS BY GIVING THEM THE ONLY ANSWER TO THE TRIBULATIONS OF LIFE. YOU HAVE PROVED THE ANSWER IN YOUR OWN LIFE—A LIFE IN ME CONTROLLED BY MY SPIRIT. ALL THIS YOU WILL SHARE WITH THEM THROUGH YOUR LIVING EXAMPLE AND EXPERIENCES IN ME. YES, THIS IS MY DOING AND YOU ARE GOING TO SHARE IN A MIRACLE. YOU ARE PARTAKING IN AN ANOINTED MINISTRY OF THE SPIRIT THAT SHALL BE LIKE NO OTHER BECAUSE IT IS THE LORD YOUR GOD CALLING TO THOSE YOU CANNOT PHYSICALLY REACH. YEA, I WILL COME DOWN AND BE YOUR MIGHT AND POWER. PRAY AND SEE WHAT I WILL DO. YOU CANNOT FATHOM THE HEIGHT OR BREADTH OR THE DEPTH OF MY LOVE THAT WILL REACH OUT THROUGH THIS UNUSUAL MEANS TO REACH THOSE I HAVE ALREADY CHOSEN. THEY ARE SEARCHING FOR THE PATH AND I WILL USE THIS MEANS TO RESCUE AND HEAL THEM.
To the Prayer Group: I WILL AGAIN DO MIRACLES AND YOU ARE CALLED TOGETHER TO SHARE IN THIS WORK. DID I NOT CALL YOU “BURDEN BEARERS”? DID I NOT CHOOSE EACH OF YOU? I FORMED YOU TO BE INTERCESSORS AND YOU WILL INTERCEDE FOR SOULS TO BE DELIVERED AND SAVED. YOU PRAY AND I WILL ANOINT AND SEND MY SPIRIT FORTH TO DRAW THEM UNTO MYSELF THAT THEY MAY LEARN IN TRUTH THAT I AM THE WAY, THE TRUTH AND THE LIFE AND NO ONE GOES TO THE FATHER BUT THROUGH ME. I WILL REVEAL MYSELF TO THEM AND GIVE THEIR LIVES FULFILLMENT IN ME. THEY WILL BE FED WITH MANNA FROM ON HIGH AND THEIR NAMES WILL BE IN THE BOOK OF LIFE. GO FORTH AND DO AS I HAVE COMMANDED YOU.
