Signs & Wonders: When God Moves

Written in the words of Lillian Tyrrell, July 2009  Signs & Wonders? Yes!

So….Last week Michael went and did his usual “wheeling and dealing” and did some trading and got a new guitar. It’s a beautiful PRS guitar (Paul Reed Smith, for you non-guitar players like myself) and it has your regular type frets on it (nickel/silver), nothing out of the ordinary. This past weekend he played this guitar at the services at Lion of Judah church in Dunedin and reports from that weekend have been overwhelming about the awesome presence of the Lord and the strong anointing that was in the service and on the worship.

Today Michael went to the guitar shop to talk to his friend who owns the shop (not a believer) and he brought the guitar with him to have his friend look at it and do some minor “tweaking” on it.

His friend took the guitar and started to work on it and then he just stared at it and he asked Michael:

“Dude, have you looked at this guitar?”

Michael: “yeah, of course I looked at the guitar, I played it”

His friend: “No, I mean really, did you LOOK at the guitar, what did you do to it? Have you looked at the frets?”

Michael: “Yes, I looked at the guitar and I saw the frets”

His friend: “Dude…Did you notice the frets have changed? These frets are GOLD NOW!”

Michael: “What? This is crazy!”

His friend: “Seriously….look at these frets….they turned pure gold after you played the guitar this weekend. Man something really weird is going on here, it’s like some kind of miracle or something….Wow, and I don’t even believe in this kind of S- – t!

So tonight Michael showed me the guitar and sure enough, the frets are gold! He tried to rub the gold off with steel wool and they’re still gold. Just a little while ago he looked at it again and now there’s gold dust all over the guitar neck too! hahaha…..Michael has always preached that lately it seems like Christians have gotten overly concerned with having signs and wonders manifest FOR THEM/US, yet the Word says that they (signs and wonders ) are for the unbelievers. Don’t you just love the Lord!

See Romans 15:17-21 Therefore I glory in Christ Jesus in my service to God. I will not venture to speak of anything except what Christ has accomplished through me in leading the Gentiles to obey God by what I have said and done—by the power of signs and wonders, through the power of the Spirit of God. So from Jerusalem all the way around to Illyricum, I have fully proclaimed the gospel of Christ. It has always been my ambition to preach the gospel where Christ was not known, so that I would not be building on someone else’s foundation. Rather, as it is written: “Those who were not told about him will SEE, and those who have not heard will UNDERSTAND.”


Unfortunately [there are no “before” pictures] because there was nothing special or note worthy about the frets that would have caused us to take pictures before he played it. Michael didn’t even notice anything different about the instrument until he took it into the shop today and his friend was the one that brought attention to what had happened and was blown away since he’s the one that sold him the guitar and he knew what the frets looked like prior to Michael playing it. It was doubly special because this friend of Michael doesn’t believe in things like this yet he himself referred to it as a “miracle” and he was pretty freaked out by the whole thing.

  1. Every night of that weekend worship I left covered in gold dust – a sign that my brother-in-law had trouble believing even though he was a believer. He thought those things were gimmicks and fake. I didn’t even notice because the lighting in the church was so low during worship. My brother-in-law praised God that weekend in new faith.
    My earthly father, weak in faith at the time, was amazed and believed that it was a true miracle – especially because I didn’t know it was all over our heads!
    I received physical healing that Saturday Night! Amazing time with the sweet heart of God and the touch of Jesus!
