Chapter 6 of the book on wings of eagles
Phoenix is visited by Chaplain Raphael at the hospital
"night visitor" by flylikeaneagle

Chaplain Raphael is a prayer warrior and a chef for The Father's House. He prays for people in the hospitals feeling God's peace and presence. Jesus leads him to prophesy and pray for Phoenix.

Chaplain Raphael strolled on the Denver Health Hospital tile floor, mediating, "arise to new life. Shine and be radiant with the light of the Lord. Your light has come, and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you! Darkness shall cover the earth, and dense darkness on people. The Lord shall arise upon you, and we shall see His glory on you."

Having his head down, without looking at the number on the door, he walked into room 223, and noticed a lady sleeping.

"Blessings miss." Raphael said, "I must be in the wrong room."

Looking at the doors, he spotted Phoenix's name on room 222 and walked inside. The full moon's light streamed through the window, casting a soft light in the sandy brown hospital room.

Chaplain Raphael stood next to Phoenix, watching him breathe. "Phoenix, don't be afraid. The demons of darkness can't hurt you anymore. Jesus has redeemed you, Phoenix, and calls you by name. Phoenix, you are mine."

He dug inside his pant pocket and pulled out a small bottle of oil. The lettering on the anointing oil bottle said, "Joy." Chaplain Raphael poured some oil on Phoenix's forehead and made the sign of the cross. Smells of citrus, cedar, and peppermint filled the atmosphere.

"The Lord is telling me that your father regrets how he never told you how proud he was of you with your amazing talents. Your mother reminded him that you liked running and led a team in the army. Your family is always with you and cheering you on with the saints and angels."

Chaplain Raphael placed his hand on Phoenix's shoulder. "You are young. Follow your heart's desires. Father God is watching you and has incredible plans for you, more than your heart knows." He watched Phoenix softly snoring, fast asleep. The clock on the wall by the bulletin board ticked by loudly.

"I'm Chaplain Raphael. The doctor told me you had army tags on your neck. I was in the army in Korea days... lost some mighty best friends." He bit his lips. "I'll see them in Heaven someday."

"Phoenix, you can nod, move a finger or touch my hand. I'll do the talking. My wife says that I'm good at chattering. I like to dance to polkas and waltzes. I love my wife's homemade cinnamon rolls, and homemade chicken soup!"

"Phoenix, you may feel broken. You, son, are blessed, highly favored, and walking in victory. When you trained in the army, you got orders from your superiors. Well, as your Chaplain, I'm giving you a new order, choose life." Raphael placed his hands over Phoenix's heart. "Choose life," He said. "Speak life in Jesus' Name."

Phoenix laid still on the hospital bed with his eyes closed. "Life... Jesus."

"Jesus came to give you real and eternal life, more and better life than you can dream of. Life overflowing with joy, blessings, and God's grace, Phoenix, I'll stop by again." Chaplain Raphael smiled at Phoenix. "I put a Bible and "The Lord Heals," book I wrote on your night stand for you to read and meditate on. The world wants to break us, cause sorrow, and take our energy. We can meditate on his Holy Words. The Son of Righteousness will rise with healing in its wings. This is one of my favorite scriptures from Malachi 4:2."

Chaplain Raphael looked at the watercolor picture of spring flowers on the wall. The morning sunlight filtered inside. "Hosanna, Hosanna, Jesus died and rose again for you and me, precious Phoenix. He came to give us life."

Phoenix reached out his hand to his voice. "Life."

"Yes, life is the way," Chaplain Raphael said. "Remember, you are in God's hands. Jesus loves you as his son."

Phoenix opened his eyes and smiled, "Thank you."

"Jesus, you are looking at your beloved son, an army vet, and a warrior for your Kingdom. God, you already transformed this prodigal into your son. Use his mess for your message to help other prodigal sons find their way home to you," Chaplain Raphael prayed. "Give Phoenix dreams, desires, and destiny. Even thou he walked through the dark shadows of life without a candle lighting his way. You, Father God, are his light guiding his footsteps. You alone give him life, plans, and a purpose. I draw a bloodline of Jesus' precious blood around Phoenix and speak life in Jesus' Name. Phoenix, Jesus bought you by his blood, which was shed on a wooden cross at Calvary. He died, was buried, and rose to Heaven." Raphael continued, "Jesus is always with you, Phoenix." Raphael held his hand. The room filled up with the golden glory light of God's presence.

Chaplain Raphael prayed out loud as he walked down the hallways of the hospital. "Surely goodness, mercy, and overflowing joy of Jesus will follow us wherever we go. People will desire to know the love of Jesus. We have the Good News and Kingdom's freedom here on Earth. Let's spread this Good News by loving and touching others, Hallelujah!"

The book continues with kissing camels. We will provide a link to it when you review this below.

Author Notes
Jesus will never leave or forsake us. Sometimes, God will send someone to be the voice of God's Kingdom. I hope that you all know you are loved, and that my chapters will touch your heart.

Personal note: I dedicate this chapter to my Father, Raphael, who was a chaplain and cook for the veterans. He loved to do color guard, cook spaghetti, and grill steaks. Dad fixed bikes for the youth and helped people. God's blessings to you all. nancy
