News about a revival at the Toronto Airport Vineyard Church reached us in the summer of 1994, and I arranged for my family to stay at the Monte Carlo Inn and spend a week attending the Toronto Blessing meetings nearby.

God's presence was strong in those meetings, and in the anointed ministry afterwards. One evening, during the ministry time, the presence of God poured heavily upon me, and I fell to the floor under the anointing of the Holy Spirit.

While laying on the carpet, a sensation of deep peace enveloped me, and I received a prophetic vision that continues to bless me as much now as it did then.

I saw myself standing in a beautiful meadow of green grass sprinkled with flowers of every color. Suddenly, a huge male lion with a full golden mane walked up from behind and stood quietly at my side.

He looked intently at me with kindness in his eyes, and I felt no fear or concern. I instantly knew that he was Jesus, the Lion of Judah. Ten years later, when I had seen Aslan in The Chronicles of Narnia movie, he looked very much like the Lion in my vision.

The Lion nodded his head, and I understood that he wanted me to walk after him, so I placed my left hand on his shoulder, and we started walking across the grassy meadow.

Soon, we came across a man laying on the ground, and he appeared to be unwell and in pain. The Lion looked at the man and nodded his head, and I knew that I was to lay my hand on the man's shoulder. The second my hand made contact, the Lion tossed his head back giving a mighty roar, and the man was instantaneously healed.

The Lion started walking again, and I followed his lead. Eventually, we came to a terrified woman who was being bound with chains by a horrible demon, and she couldn't move. Again, the Lion nodded and I knew that I was to rebuke the demon.

I commanded the demon to release the woman and as before, the Lion tossed his head back giving a mighty roar, and instantly the chains broke in pieces as the now-terrified demon scurried off leaving the woman free from bondage.

We continued walking and after witnessing several more miracles, I realized that the majestic Lion would always be there to lead me, and when I followed and obeyed his promptings, he would back me up with a powerful roar accompanied with signs and wonders.

We read in Scripture, "They shall walk after the LORD. He will roar like a lion …" (Hosea:11:10).

Jesus, the Lion of Judah invites YOU to walk after Him too! My prayer is that you will accept His invitation. He's waiting to lead you on an amazing, miraculous journey through His Kingdom.
