A Taste Of The Walk To Come by Olivia Reitz Long

A Taste Of The Walk To Come
Olivia Reitz Long  -  (2009)

After reading the different messages the people posted on the 16th, all under the title of "The Rapture of the Manchild", I wanted to write and tell you what He did in 2003. My daughter was still living back in PA (my home until 2001 when I came to TX).

Prior to 2003, years before, He had been teaching me about the Manchild, The Sons of Glory. I remember the first night He talked to me about this.... I was sitting on my front deck at dusk, where I would go to meet with the Lord. He began to tell me about this -- prior to that just one week before, a lady said that very soon, Father would tell me something that would blow my mind. And when He began, I would say 'out loud': (wouldn't be able to contain myself) "Oh my God, Oh, my God, Oh my God." (three times) I thought, well almost anyone knows what 'very soon' can mean when He says it -- a month, six months, a year or years down the road. Little did I know that it would occur just one week later. (oh, how He loves to prove us wrong and surprise us.)

When Father began speaking to me about this, I heard myself saying, out loud "Oh my God, Oh my God, Oh my God." I remember placing my hand over my mouth, remembering what she had said to me one week before. (And it did happen very soon, in our timing) I sat there mesmerized listening to every word intently. I thought to myself,- "I am a part of this?" Of course He knew what I was thinking and He just said "yes, you are."

In Nov. of 2003, my daughter had twin boys. I did not have any money to fly back to see them and I thought I would be ok with that, but found that I wanted to see them so badly and I was having a hard time dealing with it.... I went on the net and e-mailed my mailing list and asked them to pray for me that my mind would be eased. (That was all I asked of them) One couple in KY wrote and said I would have round trip tickets waiting for me at the commuter airport, and then to Houston to fly to Pittsburgh, then to drive to my home town to see the boys. Another dear lady sent me $500 for whatever else I needed (i.e. rental car, food, whatever) - a couple of others sent what they could, $10, etc. Bless God!

I went to the commuter airport and while I was waiting to board the plane, Father said to me "you will have an encounter with me before you arrive back in TX". I was elated, as you can imagine. I flew to PA, was there for five days, nothing happened. No encounter! I checked my e-mail at my daughter's and a person said that I would have an encounter with God sometime during this trip....confirmation! I flew from Pittsburgh, back to Houston and from there back to the commuter airport. Still no encounter!

The plane was the largest of the commuters and it was packed full of passengers. I was sitting in the back seat. As we taxied up to the terminal, I almost cried, feeling I had not gotten the encounter. When the passengers were deplaning, I got up to leave and found my purse strap was caught in the side of the seat, I couldn't get it free. By the time I freed it, all the passengers were off and in the terminal. Finally I was able to leave. Outside, two flight attendants grinned and said here's our lost sheep. I just smiled at them, a little dejected, well maybe more than a little.

I went to the terminal, there were automatic glass sliding doors and the moment the doors opened and I stepped over the threshold, the encounter began. I knew it, something seemed different and it was as though I was walking in two different atmospheres, walking there as an actual person in the natural, but yet walking in another realm as well. Father spoke and said, remember what I told you before? I am giving you a taste of what it will be like when you are walking in this and this "taste" will last for three days. My ride was standing in the lobby talking to someone. (By the way, they were having some kind of problem getting all the luggage off the plane for the passengers, the airport employees said they never experienced anything like this, we know Who arranged the delay.)

I walked around, went over to my ride and it was as though I was not there, I really was but they couldn't see me. I heard them talking, but they did not look my way. I walked round about between passengers, families and friends, but no one seemed to see me. At one point, a man was walking right at me and then he was behind me. Father said to go to the restroom and look in the mirror. I thought I would be invisible or something, but I could see myself, I looked different but yet the same, I looked much better, younger and even stronger, and I could tell the energy was within me, His energy. I noted that at one moment I looked translucent and then would appear just as any other person. I went back to the terminal and the baggage was coming through.

We stopped at a restaurant to get a bite to eat and this couple began talking to us, idle chit chat, as it were, I didn't say much because all I could think of was I just wanted to keep walking in this forever. I did for the three days, just as He said, then it left, just as He said. But before it left, He said "This is how it will happen, I will come and each of you will be transformed just as quickly, as when you stepped through the door, seemingly all was, as normal, the same as my own currently walk in the world, but "in a split nano second, that twinkling of an eye, you were "changed" and that is how it will be when I come upon all of you. You have no idea of exactly when I will do this, but be prepared and never doubt for a moment, no matter what anyone says to you, that it shall happen, because it WILL happen and much sooner than any of you can imagine and just as you went from one moment to the next (with no inkling of what would occur), you shall be changed, it will happen the same way with all of you.. So stay close to Me, don't doubt, don't allow the nay-sayers to dissuade you in any way, trust and have faith in Me that it's DONE and EXPECT!...

I just want to add one of the experiences that He gave me during those three days.

I was going about my life, as usual, in the natural but also being in the other realm. One day I had to go to the store. I was going down this narrow aisle and there were two people standing in the middle of the aisle. I was about to say "excuse me", so I could go past them, when Father said to just walk between them. My thoughts said "but there is no more than two feet between them". He just said "do it". I walked between them and they never knew it happened. Awesome to say the least.
