It was June the 15th 1985, I was 20yrs old and living in Fremantle, Perth.
It was about 1-2am, as I walked down the main street (Adelaide St) of Fremantle, I noticed the guy up in front of me tried to talk to two girls walking by, they fobbed him off and he walked towards me. I thought he was trying to pick them up.
He came up to me, he was a Christian, He handed me a tract and said something about Jesus and walked on… I spun around and said “Hey! where are you going, I want to hear about this”… He was as shocked as I was, normally if a Christian wanted to talk to me, I would say some lame excuse and walk off. But this burst out of my heart, my head was thinking “what on earth are you saying”.
Anyway he looked at me and said “can I pray for you?”, I said “sure”, He put his hand on my shoulder and started praying in strong tongues right there on the street, I had never heard such things in my life. This little voice in my heart said… “just let him do that”, So I did.
Then he said “would you like to come back for a coffee?” I said ok!
So we went into a large cafe, as we walked in the door I notice the people at one particular table, away down the back of the room, they had beams of light shining out of their eyes, not like a torch light more like the sun! The light consumed me, it was love, I had always known that light, I felt like I had always known those people but I have never met them. (From that experience I know that I knew God before I was in this world, (He who he fore knew he predestined, Rom 8:29-30).
Anyway the light (which was love) consumed me, all I wanted to do was run down to the back of the cafe, dive across the table and grab them all in my arms and say I loved them. The little voice in my heart said, “don’t do that they will think you’re crazy”, so I constrained myself.
The cafe was full of people, guess where the Christian guy led me? you got it, straight to the little table down the back, it was his street team, there was an old lady, a guy with leather jacket, just a weird mix really.
Because of the beams of light coming out of their eyes… I could say he’s one, and that person is not one, if someone said I am one, I could say no your not! Of course I never said that to anyone but it was that real.
To this day those Christians have no knowledge that I seen beams of light shining out of their eyes, they were just a normal group of Christians having a coffee.
