Gold And Silver Dust, Gems And Other Miracles
Over the last few years there have been a lot of reports of gold and
silver dust appearing upon people - mainly in Christian Full Gospel
meetings. Oil is dripping from hands. Some have also received gold coins,
gems. But lately, from what I've read, these latter are mainly to
individuals in their homes and yards.
Others are receiving angelic manifestations seen above them as
flowing beautiful transparent figures and circles of faint light referred to
as angel orbs.
Photos, slide shows and U-tube videos have been sent out over the
Internet showing all of these. Two of URL's are at the end of this article.
Naturally there have been strong speculations as to the sources of
these phenomena in Christian circles. I haven't yet heard of any
non-Christians receiving any of these miracles except the angel orbs. And I
haven't read of any non-Christians expressing their views on these.
So I believe that we can safely assume that this is a Christian issue
. and we call it an issue because of the disagreement and various opinions
aired, especially lately, among Christians, particular over the Internet.
It seems that the main questions arising about these miracles are
Firstly What is the source?. And Secondly What is the purpose?
It seems that there are 3 possibilities being considered as the Source :
1st They are given supernaturally from God.
2nd They are faked in some way .
3rd They are from the devil and are thus demonic manifestations.
1. My own belief and that of many is that these are from God because:
They manifest in Christian meetings or Christian homes to mostly those known
to be reliable Christians of long-standing. And I personally have received
the silver dust. I think some don't believe because they haven't received
any of these miracles or haven't wanted to.
2. A few say these miracles are fake or staged (thus not real).
Those who believe this have related their reasons or experiences elsewhere
and I won't attempt to go into this.
3. The third belief is that the Source of these signs and wonders is demonic
and Satanic because if they aren't accepted as being from God or fake then
this is the only remaining conclusion. The main reasoning here seems to be
that they are not mentioned in the Scriptures. I do have sympathy for those
who believe that only what is illustrated in the Bible is from God because I
know they do value the Bible as their authority and guide for life . just as
we all should. And maybe some Christians don't yet have the faith to believe
His Word and promises in this area of their Christian lives to the effect
that He will keep His Word and protect us if we ask. As to the belief they
are not Scriptural (although individual prophecies are being received today
which are not in the Bible but are accepted as from God). should we limit
God to just His written Word? This is the area of disagreement.
One astute friend stated that Moses didn't read in the Bible about
God appearing in the Burning bush either but he accepted it. (Of course we
are just making the point although we know there was no Bible then .only
when Moses began writing it did it begin to be recorded for us all to read).
But Moses knew God when he heard His voice. And we should be able to.
Scripture confirms this: Jesus said about Himself, the Good Shepherd in the
NASV Gospel of John 10:4 "When He puts forth all His own, He goes before
them and the sheep follow Him because they know His voice " verse 5 "and a
stranger they simply will not follow but will flee from him because they do
not know the voice of strangers."
Therefore we don't need to be worried about getting mixed up as to
who the source of these miracles is because we don't recognize the voice of
Satan or demons as being from God and we don't follow (or accept) them.
And as to the feeling by some present in these meetings that they
have become aware of the presence of some demons and demon activity, as one
mature discerning Christian noted, demons did show up constantly in Jesus'
ministry here on earth. So we shouldn't be surprised if some visit the
meetings and even influence or act out through some of those present who
willingly open themselves to these spirits. Other Christians may be a
MIXTURE of true indwelling Spirit of God and carnality thus influenced to
accept and act out strange behaviors.
His Word does say to test the spirits. We are supposed to do this.
What test should we use?? God's Word states that the test is that if the one
ministering, teaching, preaching, etc. believes and confesses that Jesus
Christ has come in the flesh then he is of God. NASV John 4:1-3 "Beloved, do
not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from
God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world. By this you
know the spirit of god: every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has
come in the flesh is from God; and every spirit that does not confess Jesus
is not from God; and this is the spirit of the antichrist, of which you have
heard that it is coming and now it is already in the world."
Is this the basis on which all Christians are deciding whether to
believe whether these miracles are from God or Satan and his anti-Christ
spirit who it is prophesied is here to lead astray the very elect by signs
and wonders if possible? Matthew 24:24 "For false Christs and false prophets
will arise and will show great signs and wonders so as to mislead, if
possible, even the elect."
Just as I was about to send this article out, my computer friend Ron
Anderson whose testimony is under personal experiences in this article
suddenly wrote me the following which I feel gets to the heart of the
"I think I may know the answer why so many "Christians" simply do not
believe in such miraculous Father God-given gifts, is because they have not
been a witness to such marvelous things. Then too, they must not know THE Father of lights.
Too much head knowledge maybe. In the world and too much OF it.
Having eyes and not seeing, having ears and not hearing, having a heart but
not understanding. Will they believe the lying signs and wonders of Satan
that "it is written" about? There is too much disbelief in the Church!!!"
Many see no purpose at all and believe they have a very negative
result and are meant to or are having the effect of drawing the focus away
from our Lord. Those saying they are fake just seem to believe it is for
money or for fame. Those of us who have witnessed and received the signs and
wonders believe that there is a God-ordained purpose which is to bring us
closer to our Lord and enable us to better glorify Him. These miracles come
when we are thinking of Him (KJV Malachi 3:16, 17 Then they that feared the
Lord spake often one to another and the Lord hearkened and heard it and a
book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the Lord and
that thought upon His name. And they shall be mine saith the Lord of hosts
in that day when I make up my jewels and I will spare them as a man spareth
his own son that serveth him ) and often when we are seeking Him, honoring
and praising Him above all and the outpouring of these gifts often increase
as we worship Him more intensely. But some come unexpectedly. He is the
Giver and decides when and where to give them.
Of course there are abuses. There will always be some who use the
gifts for self-glorification, and some who get distracted and get their eyes
off our Lord seeking these miracles instead of Him. We, as Christians, are
still human, fallible and often led astray - especially young Christians or
those who have never fully surrendered to our Lord and have thus been
enabled by the Spirit of God to grow in His image and into a close grounded
relationship with Him.
I've discussed the question of the Sources and the Purpose.
However, the bottom line for all of us who are Christians is that we
continue to obey the commandments mentioned by the Rich young Ruler in NASV
Luke 10:27 . "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with
all your soul, and with all your strength, and with all your mind: and your
neighbor as yourself.". Then Jesus said in the Gospel of John 15:12 "This is
My commandment that you love one another as I have loved you." So should we
be attacking each other verbally over this issue? I'm sure that according to
His Words, we should not. And if we allow ourselves to do that, maybe the
next step will be that some might follow the lead of some of those previous
American 16th century Christians who burned 'heretics' at the stake as
witches. Some Quakers, and some of other faiths, were hanged for their
beliefs. Maybe some of us will soon be in danger of losing our lives at the
hands of other Christians for our beliefs.
PERSONAL EXPERIENCES OF MINE AND OF OTHERS
Having been raised as the daughter of a Presbyterian minister, and
graduating from Peace College, an NC Presbyterian Junior College at that
time, and later from Duke University in Durham which was Methodist in
heritage, and having been a Director of Christian Education in one
Presbyterian church, thus I was very involved all of my early years in a
denomination which had no atmosphere of hearing of, seeing or believing in
miracles. However our Catechism did teach us that the chief end of man is to
glorify God and to enjoy Him forever. So I was prepared to enjoy Him in all
of His beauty of character and to enjoy all of the gifts He chose to bestow.
This made it easy to accept His bestowing gold, silver, jewels, angels and
whatever else He might lovingly pour upon us.
I received salvation, after I was willing to completely surrender my
life fully to the Lord at age 22, through the lay ministry of an Assemblies
of God couple wherein I was then introduced to the supernatural.
Liking to read I was blessed to come across the writings of
missionaries, the Catholic classics and other good Christian literature. I
read about the stigmata of Padre Pio and others and ordered copies of his
biography. I accepted the miracle of the stigmata as a gift and sign to him
and the others from God. I thought it was a type of identification with the
sufferings of Christ bringing more of a oneness with him. I may have prayed
to receive this but I don't remember. I did read of missionary Hudson
Taylor's experience of union with God as described in the book written about
this entitled HUDSON TAYLOR'S SPIRITUAL SECRET and I prayed to receive that
experience. It was granted to me after several years of great trials.
So in recent years, when I began to hear of the gold dust being
received in meetings of Christians, I didn't doubt it. And I haven't had any
reason to doubt it since. I reminded the Lord (as if He didn't know) that I
couldn't get to any meetings so I prayed that I would receive this if it
pleased Him to grant it. And I didn't think any more about it. Later I read
on the Rivermail computer List the testimony of a Tennessee lady, named
Barbara Rufo who lived near my Western NC mountain home. She told of
receiving it so I wrote to her and enquired about it. It was summer at least
3 year's ago. She just said to go out into the yard in the sun and look at
my arms and hands. I uttered a brief prayer and went out but not seeing
anything and came back in. Then I felt the inclination to go out and look
again and there were sparkles on my arms and hands. I had only heard about
gold dust but not diamond or silver dust as it is often called. From then on
the diamond dust has been on my hands and arms often. One has to be in a
bright light to see it sparkle . either outdoors or under a reading lamp.
Barbara still has the 'dust' also appearing on her skin as I do.
At first I mentioned it to my husband, my son, to Barbara and to a
few close friends over the Internet. Also I shared at our non-Full gospel
women's prayer group and there was no reaction - only quiet acceptance...
but I didn't talk about it much otherwise and no one was interested in
seeking it for themselves at that time.
At my Christian Retreat Center called Stonehaven (named after the
Stone whom the builders rejected but Who has become the Chief Cornerstone
and our Hiding Place and Haven) other than having Barbara visit and give her
testimony I didn't mention it to my guests when they visited. Later someone
told me that a gentleman who was a guest and friend had received a fleck on
his forehead while the visiting minister prayed with him about other things,
no one having mentioned the gold dust to them.
During the spring of 2006 a Stonehaven guest I had just met was
talking with me while we sat at the apartment table and a good-sized gold
fleck appeared on his right upper cheek. I stopped talking as I was
surprised. He had never heard of these miracles nor had I even thought to
ever mention them to him. He was happy to learn of them and the appearance
on him personally.
As the months, after I first received, passed I often saw the shiny
sparkles (I refer to them as diamond dust but some call them silver dust) on
stationery while I was writing to prisoners or on a book I was reading. Once
I saw them on a particular newspaper article about a Congressman who was
Lately, as I've been witnessing to others more about their presence
I've seen them more often - occasionally on my Bible. On letters I'm writing
or books I am reading and also on my telephone but more consistently on my
arms and hands and other parts of my body. I don't ask for them nor seek
them in any way as they have appeared spontaneously since that first time.
Nor do I look for them except rarely but they are there and can appear at
random times . sometimes immediately after a bath. One of my pet dogs I'd
had for 6 years was killed by a truck on the Highway this past week and I
noticed more of the dust on me than usual. Our God has said He will never
leave us nor forsake us, but being human it helps to see the physical
assurance of it just as it is comforting for a Christian friend to write us,
phone us, give us a hug and let God use them to transmit His love to us. But
the friends aren't always available. The miracles are since God chooses to
This week I sent an e-mail to my friends Ron and Patsy Anderson of Oregon
asking for his testimony and what he knows of the gifts. He writes: "I will
go back to the beginning of these gifts of God. Does our heavenly Father
give gifts to his children? Most assuredly! Where did our start begin, -
about 25 years ago. In fact, the 93 year old lady friend of some 40 years,
Nina, whom I took yesterday for an eye appointment, and tomorrow for a
doctor's appointment, had called up years ago to let us know a man was going
to be at, in fact, our very own church, and people received new gold inlays,
and not too long ago she showed me hers she had received back then.
Then about 10 years ago at Portland Foursquare again a young man from Canada
came to our church for a week. On Monday and Tuesday he spoke and ministered
to the teen youth. Then during the Wednesday night service for us adults,
people received the gold inlays and silver fillings, some in the form of a
cross. Several people we knew received. After that we heard of the same
anointing at Pastor Les Moore's church, which a friend told me about. We
were there a couple of nights and quite a few people received the gold and
silver fillings. We were told that the night we weren't there fire came out
of the two speakers. Right on the heels of that, my wife especially for
about a year or so, gold dust would appear on her hands, face, especially on
Mother's Day. Once in awhile now-a- days a bit appears. Generally mine would
be one or a few large specks.
Here about three years ago on a Sunday night, the third day of a three day
annual Creation conference by archeologist pastor Dennis Swift, he had a
lady here from Argentina I believe, that gold dust would fall from her hair,
and in about 15 minutes Dr. Dennis' forehead was solid with the gold dust.
On his clothes too.
One summer around 2000 Patsy's sister Betty from Bakersfield visited us for
several weeks. We talked about the gold dust, and right then some appeared.
Then she told me her story about when she was about 9 or 10, and her oldest
brother, Ronald about 11 or 12. They lived near Long Beach, CA, and the
whole family was fully involved with the healing tent ministry of A.A.
Allen. Ronald was Allen's lil' gofer.
This one day while only they were there, Betty sitting inside and Ronald
outside, she heard and saw water cascading down at the doorway, and thought
Ronald was playing with a water hose. When she went out to find Ronald, he
wasn't there but the water was still cascading off the top of the entrance
way. She also told other experiences when the people and "Brother" Allen
were there how oil would appear on her fingers, and blood on her palms. She
would wipe away the blood but it would come again.
So, fast-forwarding now, in the past year I guess, we have the reports, and
actuality of gemstones falling from the atmosphere, inside churches, etc. I
recently sent off for a tape from Sid Roth of Messianic Vision of his radio
interview with Patricia King of Extreme Prophecy, and she spoke of the
falling gemstones by the hands of angels. She said the largest stone had the
number of 54. She also has written a new book." Testimony above by Ron
There are photos of the angel orbs taken at Christian meetings and I've been
told that many are also on the New Age and other non-Christian sites.
However, one evangelist friend of mine was preaching a revival in his tent
and a mutual evangelist friend of ours was taking pictures. When I sent out
a slide show over the Internet of the various miracle gems and angel orbs
the friend who took the photos recognized the angel orbs as something that
had appeared in the developed photos he took at the Tent revival. He sent me
a photo to ask what I thought and that is what they were. Neither of these
evangelists had ever heard of these signs and wonders being received around
the country today. And when I told the preaching evangelist who was in the
photo and owned the tent and sent him a copy of the photo, he wasn't
surprised or impressed. He did tell me over the phone that he had told the
people in the congregation one night that angels were standing on each side
of him. He also walked into one in his house around that time. But his only
interest is in winning souls to Jesus.
We are chosen to be His bride and might He not have chosen these last days
before the wedding feast to shower us with beautiful gold, silver, and gems
as an intended bridegroom often does with His bride? All through the
Scriptures- gold, and beautiful gems are told of in reference to His bride
and the bridegroom such as in Jeremiah 2:32 it says "Can a maid forget her
ornaments or a bride her attire? Yet my people have forgotten Me days
without number ". NASV Obviously our Lord is comparing Himself and His
relationship to us as the ornaments (the gold, silver, jewels) of a bride
about to be married . an interesting comparison to say the least.
All throughout nature, His creation, there are His lavishly bestowed
beauties of the colors of the feathers of the Birds, the various hues of the
petals of the flowers, the leaves of the trees as they come out in spring,
turn darker in maturity and are brilliantly colored ever-changing in dying
in the fall. The sunsets and sunrises are ever-varying whether there is an
audience to behold and admire them. None of this beauty is needed or
necessary. Psalm 19:1 says "The heavens declare the glory of God and the
firmament showeth His handiwork." KJV
There are also many beautiful and useful elements underground such as
gold, silver, gems, coal, and oil which He has created. I don't see it as
contrary to His nature throughout the centuries for Him to bestow the actual
physical elements of gold, silver, gems, oil or other gifts supernaturally
whenever He might choose.
Might He also want to encourage us as the days grow darker with the
accompanying greater need for more of His manifested love and care? Some
Christians are said to be selling the gems they are receiving supernaturally
for money to pay off debts. In the Old Testament the Israelites needed food
miraculously. They couldn't have used money at that time as there was no
food to buy. So God provided the manna for that time and that need. He can
provide gems or gold coins (as some have received) to be sold to buy food or
meet our material needs and give us enough to help others whenever He
chooses to. We may personally need these items someday soon. I believe that
it is best not to limit Him and I don't plan to but then He does give us a
