How are you? Hope you had or are having a good day today?
I like Sid Roth’s show, “It’s Supernatural.” I like Sid Roth much because he is always joyful. And I love to listen to supernatural testimonies on Jesus from the guest speakers in his show. Many times, I feel it more interesting to watch his shows than to watch TV shows. And I do not think it’s something weird or wrong to like to hear supernatural stories of our Father, as the Bible is also full of supernatural narratives.
One day in the fall, 2020, I watched Sid Roth’s show where James Durham was a guest speaker. It was my first time of seeing him. Since then, I searched his books and read some of them. He used to be a chaplain in the US military and was retired as Colonel. He is one of those who are caught up to the third heaven. And he said he thinks the Lord caught him up to the Heaven, to let people know it’s open not only to some leaders in church, but to every believer. He also said he was not well-known in the so-called ‘Christian circle,’ as he served the military. And I found there was another purpose for him to be caught up to heaven and to start to write books, as Jesus commanded him to do. He wrote books on preparation for the end-time, spiritual warfare and so on. His experiences in the military were well illustrated in his books as analogy for the end-time preparation and the spiritual warfare. I think the Lord has a unique plan for each one of us and nothing in our career path and so forth is accidental.
In a James Durham’s book, “Keys to Open Heaven,” he shared one of his experiences in heaven where Jesus taught him to lay his hands over people for an impartation for the renewal of minds. Then, the shape of laying his hands that was instructed by the Lord was quite special. His two thumbs were put together in the center, while two hands and other fingers are stretched out. (In the end of this blog, I’m sharing a video clip where James Durham shared this story showing his hands.) When he came back from heaven and shared it with his wife, she said holding hands like that looks like a dove. But he was not quite sure of it. Then, in conferences in Korea, he laid his hands on the people for impartation, just as he was instructed by the Lord. Later, his Korean friend who is a Torah scholar said to him, “Do you know what that is?” having his hands together the way Jesus had taught James. And he said to James, “This is the Aaronic blessing. This is how Aaron held his hands while blessing the people. It forms the Hebrew letter “shin” which looks similar to a letter “w” in English. It has two very powerful meanings. It stands for the name of God and consuming fire.”
Since then, James Durham searched more on Aaronic blessing and wrote Numbers 6:22-27:
And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying: “Speak to Aaron and his sons, saying, ‘This is the way you shall bless the children of Israel. Say to them:
“The Lord bless you and keep you;
The Lord make His face shine upon you,
And be gracious to you;
The Lord lift up His countenance upon you,
And give you peace.” (verse 22~26)
So they shall put My name on the children of Israel, and I will bless them.” (verse 27)
And James Durham wrote:
At first, I stopped with verse twenty six. However, the Holy Spirit drew my attention to the next verse in this chapter. I was a little stunned when I considered verse twenty seven in this particular translation. The way it was written opened a whole new line of understanding for me. The Lord said to Moshe, “In this way they are to put my name on the people of Isra’el, so that I will bless them.” (Numbers 6:27, CJB) The Lord is putting His name on us! He is doing this to bless us! Hallelujah! Thank you Lord!

And he wrote more on the verses on the name of the Lord marked on the foreheads of His people from Ezekiel and Revelation. I found it very interesting as the late Pastor Neville Johnson shared these Scriptures too, sharing his experience with the Lord in the heaven. I believe this is what the Lord wanted to teach us through them and what He wants to do on us.
Do you want to have our Father’s name on your forehead? I do. Amazingly, I had two dreams after reading and watching James Durham’s books and shows. In one dream, I was in the queue outdoor to get an impartation from Pastor James Durham and I felt the strong presence of the Lord. In another dream, I found Pastor James ministered in a church in Korea and I became a member of the church and I felt the atmosphere in the church was different from others due to the presence of the Lord. I believe the Lord imparted to me to renew my mind even through the dreams.
Friend, I pray that the Lord bless and keep you, and His face shine upon you. May your mind be renewed by the Holy Spirit and the name of our Lord, El Shaddai, God Almighty sealed on our foreheads forever.
Have a bliss!
Then I looked, and behold, a Lamb standing on Mount Zion, and with Him one hundred and forty-four thousand, having His Father’s name written on their foreheads. (Revelation 14:1)
