David Mansell on Angelic Appearances at the Dales Bible Week 1977The same phenomenon occured at the Dales Bible Week in 1977

"The same phenomenon (angelic singing) occured at the Dales Bible Week in 1977. On several evenings after the meeting was over and the auditorium vacated and locked up for the night, heavenly singing was heard coming from the building at two or three o clock in the morning. This was not only reported by those on site; people living in the houses near the site complained about the singing in the early hours of the morning!

During the same week there were several angelic appearances, particularly to the young. One six-year old boy lost in the crowd and anxiously awaited by his parents suddenly turned up full of smiles. When asked how he found his way, he replied 'Oh a nice ghost in a shiny coat showed me the way'.

During a time of testimony another lad of six was asked what he enjoyed most about the Bible Week. He replied; "I liked it best when all the angels came and flew around the children's meeting playing their trumpets and praising God".

Rob Rufus on the REAL Suicide Bombers

"Suicide Bombers are not trying to be liked by society. They want to disturb society. That's the counterfeit but God wants to wrap glory bombs of the power of God around us and He wants us to run into the secular world, the media world and let it off".

Rob Rufus on Considering Personal Life

"Before you know it you will be in your 50's and 60's! And you are going to have to look back and say what investments, what statements, what priorities, what adjustments, what Divine Encounters did I make to keep me accurately and precisely razor-like focused in my call in the will of God? Did I sell out for convinience or did I come as a prophetic voice in my generation and make a difference in my generation? That is the issue God is addressing in this generation!".
