Visions Beyond the Veil (3)
excerpts from readers

The children and young people who received this outpouring of the Holy Spirit and through whom came these visions and revelations were members of the Adullam Rescue Mission in Yunnanfu, Yunnan Province, China. For the most part these children had been beggars in the streets of the city . In some cases they were poor children with one or both parents dead and had been brought to the Home. There were also some prodigals who had run away from the homes in more distant parts of this or adjoining provinces. But from whatever source they came, these children, mostly boys ranging in ages from six to eighteen, had come to us without previous training in morals and without education........... Introduction, pg 11

......Since the children coming into the home had always been open to the teaching given even before the outpouring of the Holy Spirit recorded in this book........... All who received the Holy Spirit knew enough to believe in one God and to trust in the blood of Christ for salvation. They also prayed for the fullness of the Holy Spirit. They sought Christ. We did not see anyone seeking visions or any of the manifestations that were received day by day, as they all single-heartily prayed and raised the Lord Jesus. He alone was sought and magnified throughout all the weeks of the Spirit's outpouring. ........
This giving of the Promised Spirit was clearly a love gift of grace "apart from works" or personal merit. It was not something that was worked up; it was something that came down. It was not the result of character building by man from below; it was a blessing of God that came from above.
I am convinced that the experiences of these Adullam children were not manufactured. These wonders could not possibly have been the product of the natural minds of these children. Such uneducated, mentally untrained, unimaginative boys as these could not themselves have conceived of such things. Nor could these spiritual experiences, visions, and revelations have been the working of their subconscious minds. Many of these children were too young, too ignorant, or too recently rescued from paganism to know the Bible teaching on these subjects..........
We ourselves had never seen such visions as were given these children. These experiences were new to all of us. Furthermore, the children did not get these things from one another. When the power of the Lord fell in our midst many children were filled with the Spirit at the same time. Those who were in different rooms sometimes had simultaneous visions of the same things. There was no possibility of comparing one with another. The complete harmony of these visions covering numberless details is beyond any natural explanation. Even the most ignorant children, who could easily be confused on cross questioning, whether questioned singly or in groups, gave clear and uniform answers to questions covering great numbers of details.............

.......This outpouring of the Holy Spirit came to ordinary children as they went about the not-too-exciting business of going to school. Introduction Pg 14


The morning prayer meeting was lasting longer than usual. The older children left the room one by one to begin their studies in the school room, while a few of the smaller boys remained on their knees, praying earnestly. The Lord was near. We all felt the presence of the Holy Spirit in our midst. Some who had gone out returned to the room. Such a mighty conviction of sin--a thing for which we had prayed so long--came to all, that with tears streaming from their eyes and arms uplifted they cried out to the Lord for forgiveness for their sins, which now seemed so black. One after another went down under the mighty power of the Holy Spirit until more than twenty were prostrate on the floor. When I saw that the Lord was doing a most unusual thing in our midst, I went over to the school room and told the boys that if they felt led to come and pray they might be excused from their school work.. ..........
Pg 21 - 22

The meeting went on hour after hour; yet the children showed no desire to leave. I had nothing to do or say as the Lord seemed to have complete control. I just tried to keep out of His way.
As the children in visions saw the awfulness of hell, the anguish of lost souls, and the indescribably hellish power of the devil and his angels, their agonized crying was beyond anything I had ever heard or imagined. it was all so real to them. Many saw themselves bound and dragged to the very brink of hell. Condemnation for sins and the power of the devil over them was terrifying in its reality. But freedom from this evil power through the grace of the Lord Jesus was just as real. When they experienced this liberating power from the clutches of the evil one, their salvation was as real as had been their condemnation. Their joy, laughter, and peace of soul in the knowledge of what they had been saved from gave them an experience which I am sure they will never be able to forget. Since from early morning they had all been in the very presence of the Lord, by the time their late afternoon meal was ready I thought surely the service for the day was over. Not so. Some left the prayer room for a short time, but all were soon back, saying they wanted to wait upon the Lord all night. This was something decidedly new to us, for previously an hour service was too long for some of them. We had long wanted them to pray more. Now that they were willing, why refuse them? Not a child went to sleep until a late hour that night and it was not until six o'clock the next morning that the last voices were stilled in the prayer and praise service that had lasted over twenty hours with scarcely a pause.

After the first two days of this mighty downpour of the Holy Spirit, it slacked off...............
As I came out of the prayer room the boys came out from their school. They were then to go to the garden or to the other kinds of industrial work for the rest of the day, but some of them wanted to know if they could stay to pray. Having been told that those who wished to might remain and pray, a few went to work, and all the others went into the prayer room and began praying. Almost at once there was another mighty outpouring of the Holy Spirit. This out pouring was so continuous that for over a week no more attempts were made to do regular work. we did only necessary things. Everyone spent the rest of the time absorbing the great blessing of God.....
Pg 24 - 25
From the very beginning the manifestations of the Spirit, the visions, and the revelations carried everything into the supernatural realm so far beyond our own limited knowledge or experience of supernatural matters that Mrs. Baker and I confessed to each other that these things had already advanced to the stage where the only recourse we had was to believe that God was bigger than the devil. .We took refuge behind the promise that those who sought the Father for bread would not get a stone ; that those who sought a fish would not get a serpent; that those who sought an egg would not get a scorpion; that those with pure motives, like these children, who sought the Holy Spirit would not get evil things or demons, but would get exactly what they sought: the Holy Spirit (Luke 11:13).
In the following weeks God proved that promise true. set us free from anxiety as we saw and heard the wonderful things of God that took place in our midst, every day different, one wonder succeeded by another, as our wonder-working God took His Adullam refugees from stage to stage and from glory to glory in His school of the Holy Spirit.
