JOHN & SUE BROWN
B i o
In April of 1974, at the age of 19, my life took a dramatic shift in direction when I died in a car accident. I experienced an encounter with the Lord and asked Him to send me back. I expressed my desire to make things different, not realizing what that request would eventually lead me to.
For the next four years, I would experience multiple visitations from the Lord and from the enemy. I was beginning to get my "sea legs" in the spirit world, of which I had no grid for understanding other than what I had witnessed under the influence (through the gateway) of drugs.
In January of 1978, I was transported into another realm, within the sacred veil, where I experienced both the fear of the Lord and the Liquid Love of my Father. It was in me, around me and all through me. It was like what the mystics of old would refer to as ecstasy. To me, being in such a love as this was the state of well-being. Yes! I was home!
Jesus then said to me, "Go and tell them that I am Alive." This declaration set in motion my journey from carnality to the Spirit, all the while experiencing pain and loss in order to be able to fulfill His words. Because the youth of this generation is perishing without Christ and the Bride is imprisoned, I was being called to tell them He lives!
Over the course of several years, I had three dreams about the Bride of Christ and what the Lord would have me do. In the first dream my wife Susan and I dreamed the same dream in which I got married. This revealed the commitment to the Bride. The dream also showed that the Bride appeared to have her house in order by having established such things as programs and services; however, the Bride was emotionally dead and her love had no depth.
In the second dream, I saw the Bride situated in the middle of a harvest field. She was in a house that was being controlled by the father of religion. The Bride also was deaf and mute. I knew that her only hope for survival would be in her awakening to the love of the Father.
In the third dream, the Bride was still in the house and was being held captive by the father of religion. The spirit of Jezebel was also seducing her through fear, divination and the witchcraft of control.
Seven years ago, the Father began to give me revelation of the Cross and of His Kingdom. Again, I experienced a series of visitations of the Lord. He told me to meet Him outside the gate, that is, beyond the control systems of the father of religion. His declaration, "You will Know (be intimately acquainted with) the Truth and it will make you free," became a teaching or a foundation supporting a process of coming out and entering in for the purpose of telling the Bride that He is Alive. For me, this process is the journey Back to My Future and into the ecstasy of my King, my Lord, my Beloved.
