Family Builders: 2


Family Builders

Isaiah 8:18 (KJV) Behold, I and the children whom the LORD hath given me [are] for signs and for wonders in Israel from the LORD of hosts, which dwelleth in mount Zion.

Maybe you are familiar with the fact that I was a character on a Christian TV show called the Gospel Bill Show back in the 80’s. The program had a national reach and we were on all the major Christian networks. The cast would travel to churches around the country and do services. We called them family rally’s because we didn’t just want the kids to come, we also wanted the parents there so they could see how their children could be taught the Word of God.

In those days we flew on a twin engine private plane that was owned by the ministry. We had done a service in Pittsburgh on a Saturday night and got up early to fly to Long Island for a morning service. That night I had a dream. In the dream we were flying in the plane and it caught fire and tumbled down hitting telephone poles as it crashed. In the dream everybody walked away and was fine.

I just thought it was a dumb dream but as we boarded the plane that cold morning it wouldn’t start. We all got off and the pilot worked to start the plane. He finally got it started and we all got back on but suddenly it died again.

As we sat on the plane I decided to tell Willie George, who was in charge, about my dream. He looked at me with big eyes and said, “Boys, we’re not going. We’re going to honor this dream.”

We flew commercial back to Tulsa and the pilot stayed with the plane. He called on Monday and told us that they discovered a problem with the fuel line. He said if we had gone ahead and flown the plane it could have caught fire in the air. Wow! Thank God for supernatural dreams. I believe that saved our life.


God speaks in many ways. He spoke to me that day with a dream. But that’s the only time that has ever happened. God will lead us supernaturally if He needs to, but that is not an every day occurrence. Be open to hear from the Lord any way He may want to speak, but don’t get weird with it. Most of the time He speaks in a still, small voice.
