From the book ‘How you can be led by the Spirit of God’ by Kenneth E. Hagin, pp 97
After I had been in the ministry many years, death came and fastened itself upon my body. I know when death comes; I have been dead twice and came back. I know how it feels. Actually, I started to fall into the arms of death, when the Spirit of God came on me and lifted me up.
I heard a Voice speak. To me it was audible. I believe it was Jesus. I know that it was the Holy Spirit speaking. We discussed earlier how the Holy Spirit speaks not of Himself, but whatever He hears, that shall He speak. So the Holy Spirit head God or Jesus say this, and He repeated it.
It sounded like a man’s voice. It said, “Thou shalt not die, but thou shalt live. I want you to go teach My people faith. I have taught you faith through My Word. I have permitted you to go through certain experiences. You have learned faith both through My Word and by experience. Now go teach My people faith.”
The moment that voice ceased speaking I was perfectly well. I have endeavored to be obedient to that heavenly Voice. That is the reason I teach faith so much – I am supposed to do it.
