How a Supernatural God-Encounter Brought This General of the Faith to Salvation

I first asked Patricia King how she came to know the Lord. She said, "Prior to coming to Lord I was in a lot of confusion, a lot of emotional pain. My life was a mess. ... I was searching for answers and got involved in the New Age and the occult."

As she prepared to give birth to her second son, she had a lot of complications and health issues. While in the hospital room, going in and out of consciousness, "I had a visitation from the devil," King told me. "He appeared as a very handsome man, coming to me in a white suit and an olive complexion. He said, 'I can really help you right now if you will give me your child.' But somehow I knew he was the devil, but he faded out of the vision. Then Jesus came in, and I saw Jesus' arms held out to me. I didn't hear Him in an audible voice but in my heart, and He was saying, 'Come to me.' I cried out to the Lord, saying, 'Jesus, if You are for real, if you give my child and me life tonight, I will give You the rest of my life.'"

King said she came out of her convulsions, gave birth to her son and saw the glory of the Lord all around him. She continued, saying, "I knew the Lord had delivered us." She didn't fully know what it meant to serve Jesus. But God took care of that. "Six months later, an Anglican priest came to my house and preached the full gospel to me, telling me about being born again and Spirit-filled, and within the next few weeks, attending a Bible study and hearing the testimonies, I went back to my home and said, 'Jesus, I would like you to come into my heart like you did theirs," King said.

"Jesus came in like liquid love that night. ... I am so grateful for His life, I've never turned back," she added. "I was filled with the Holy Spirit a few days later, and I've been on fire ever since."

King is a respected apostolic and prophetic minister of the gospel and kingdom entrepreneur. She recently released a new book called The Power of the Decree. On my new episode of Adventures in the Spirit on the Charisma Podcast Network she goes into detail how she came to a revelation of not just praying, but also decreeing the Scripture for spiritual breakthrough.

My livestream was aired on multiple social media pages and profiles, and aired live on King TV in Pakistan by my friend John AD. In fact, 267 people gave their lives to Jesus while watching the interview, and many thousands of prayer requests came in. At the end of the conversation, King led us in a decree over our lives and the United States. It was an incredibly powerful time with a general of the faith.

I want to encourage you to listen to this powerful episode of Adventures in the Spirit with Jared Laskey. Start decreeing today!
