One of the times I've encountered angels was in the form of wind—and was probably the most intense experience I've had.
My husband, Robert John, and I were just engaged and decided to tithe together jointly for the first time. Though we weren't married, we decided to make our first tithe, our first gift, together. We were at his mom's house on the computer when we gave to a ministry online. As soon as we clicked "Donate Now" on the ministry's website it was as if all these high-powered fans started blowing in the room. It was a really intense encounter with the wind of heaven!
As the winds ripped through the room, we instantly felt filled and refreshed with the Holy Spirit and God's joy. There was an intense sense of God's pleasure with our unity, our unity in giving and our unity in giving to the kingdom. Because God loves it all—He loves our unity, He loves giving and He definitely loved what the ministry that we gave to was doing. He loved where our first tithe was going.
But there was also a sense that something was activated by that act of giving. We know from the Word that angels are dispatched on assignment. There was a connection to this action we had just taken as a couple, and now the angels were going to carry out the assignment on our behalf.
Shortly after this experience, I went to speak at a conference, and it was just nine days before we were to get married. For us, even our wedding was a step of faith. We were going to be newlyweds, and we were paying for the entire wedding ourselves. We were simply trusting God to cover the bills.
At this conference, completely unprompted, one of the other speakers got up and announced that I was getting married in nine days. It was just a fun moment. But afterward a couple who had traveled there all the way from Ireland came up to me and said, "Faytene, while that minister was sharing about you getting married, we really felt like we wanted to sow into the beginning of this new phase in life for you and your husband. If we want to make out a check, who would we make it out to?"
I was humbled and had no idea what they were going to do, but I gave them my bank information. They ended up wiring $10,000 into our new beginning!
It was the blessing of our Father, who wanted to bless us at the beginning of our new phase. Looking back, I believe there was something dispatched in the spirit realm through that joint act of giving, that first tithe we made as a couple.
For me, the manifestation of the wind is a confirmation of that. It was a fruit of the Father's goodness being poured out on us. We were able not only to get married, but also to get married with our entire wedding completely paid for. I believe the angels were involved in administrating that blessing!
