Financial Break Through

I started attending Upper Room Church in May 2011.  At that time I was working as a cashier at a local grocery store in Atlanta and did not have a car.  I normally worked 25 or more hours a week but my hours decreased to 12 hours a week. I went up for prayer during a service and asked for a car.  Prophet Battle told me, "The Lord says, "You don't have to worry about how much money you have."  The next week I went to the car dealership and walked away with a brand new 2011 Madza 2. I got the car in June of 2011.   A month or so following I went up for prayer for my finances.  Prophet Battle said, "The Lord wants you to stop fishing in small ponds and start fishing out in the deep.  Stop going for the little crumbs."  A week later I met a lady and she invited me to a hiring session. I was hired in November of 2011. I now make five times MORE than what I was making as a cashier.   I've been with the company for three years now and was promoted in 2013.  I love my job and know that I only have this job because is God is present at Upper Room Church and works mightily through Prophet Battle. I'm so grateful and mostly shocked at how Upper Room Church has changed by life totally.- Sable (Upper Room Church member since 2011) 

 
 
Women Set Free from Withcraft
A few years ago, while I was working in the Carolinas doing some telecommunications work on a college campus, we encountered demonic powers in the building where we were working.  We had taken some brothers from the church and trained them for the work.  One day, while on the job site, one of the brothers came rushing into the room where I was working. He had a shocked look on his face and he said, “Brother Franklin, you have to come and see this!  There are some girls in the room where I am working, and they are playing with a Ouija board.”  I told him that I would be in soon.  Fifteen minutes later, I went over to the room where he was working, and there were five young ladies sitting in a circle playing with this Ouija board.  

 

As I went through the door into the room, I started praying in tongues in a low voice.  The girl who seemed to be the leader said to me, “Stop that.  You are making him nervous.” I smiled and said, “What are you talking about?  I’m not doing anything.”  As I approached the table, she was asking him some questions and her hands would move the pointer to letters on the board to spell out the answers.  One question she asked was when she would become a full witch.  The demon in the Ouija board responded that it would be when she was 21 years old.  Seeing this, I asked them if they wanted to see some real power.  I told the demon in the board to tell them his name.  He spelled it out.  Then I told him to tell them who has the most power, “Me or you?”  He spelled, “You.”  I prayed and said, “Lord, I bind this demon in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.”  I commanded the demon in the board to leave it, and I commanded the principality over this area to come down into this board. 

 

At this point, we were in the midst of a spiritual paradigm shift.  I then said, “Now, I command you, principality, to identify yourself.  What is your name?” He spelled it out on the board. (In case you are wondering, the young lady was still working the board).  I asked him the same question, “Who is more powerful, me or you?”  He spelled out, “You.”  I said, “Lord, I ask you to send angels into this board and deal with the principality, and take him out of the board.”  When the five young ladies saw that the power of the Lord Jesus Christ was greater than the power of Satan, they all gave their lives to the Lord right on the spot!  We led them through the sinner’s prayer, and they became saved.-Prophet F. Battle

 

Deaf & Dumb Spirit

In the late 1980's, my wife and I were invited to attend a small church by a lady she had met at the Laundromat.  The Sunday we went, we arrived late and as we entered, the lady was standing and giving a testimony about having met my wife.

 

The pastor of the church invited me to sit in the pulpit.  After the sermon, the pastor asked me if I had anything to say to the congregation.  In his sermon, he had said that today, people could not hear from God in a literal or audible voice.  Being a prophet, I replied, "I don't know, let me see what the Lord has to say."  As I stood to speak, the anointing came upon me and I began to prophesy to certain individuals in the congregation.

 

After the service, I was greeting people with the pastor.  He introduced me to a young man who could neither speak nor hear.  I asked the pastor how he communicated with him.  He said by signing.  I asked him to inquire if he wanted prayer and if he believed the Lord could heal him.  The young man replied with yes.

 

I laid my hands on him and prayed.  He received partial hearing.  The Lord told me to lay hands on him again and this time, cast out the spirit of deaf and dumb.  I did the deliverance.  I whispered in his ear and he could hear!  I went across the room, spoke to him and he heard!  He became so overjoyed that he forgot he could not speak and began to say, "Thank you, Jesus, thank you Jesus!!!" Halleluiah!  The Lord is still in the healing business today. -Prophet F. Battle

 

Too Much Power 

In November, 2008, I was working with this team of my church members at the Upper Room Church in Riverdale, Georgia.  We were praying for deliverance over a lady, and we ran into a big strong hold.  I asked the Lord to send Michael, the Archangel to help get the demon out, but in the heat of the battle, I noticed that the demon was not leaving.  We had put our hands on the lady while praying for her, and then I said, “Come on, Michael! Get him out!” And Michael said, “I will when you move your hand.”  There was too much power coming from my hand for the demon to pass through the place where my hand was. -Prophet F. Battle

 

God’s Full Glory -December 30, 2009

Today, as I was sleeping, the Lord said to me, “Ask Me to see My Glory,” so I asked Him to see His Glory. He then instructed me to ask Him, “Let me see Your full Glory for thirty seconds.” I did so, and right after that, I felt someone pinch my forearm. There was a knowing in me to get up and go downstairs to our meeting place (my home office).  As I sat there, my thoughts were to remove everything out of my mind concerning doubts or any negative thoughts. As I sat in my chair, still groggy, I began to fall asleep. I then saw the shins of the Lord’s legs, and they were like fire, but it was as if I was looking through dark water. I then saw the Lord’s face; it was like He had on an iron mask. Through the eyeholes of the mask, I could see His face, and it was like fire. Now, because of the dark water, I could not see Him too clearly, and I was a little disappointed, but it was for my protection.

 

Exodus 33:19-23

19 Then He said, “I will make all My goodness pass before you, and I will proclaim the name of the Lord before you. I will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion.”

20 But He said, “You cannot see My face; for no man shall see Me, and live.”

21 And the Lord said, “Here is a place by Me, and you shall stand on the rock.”

22 “So it shall be, While My glory passes by, that I will put you in the cleft of the rock, and will cover you with My hand while I pass by.

23 “Then I will take away My hand, and you shall see My back; but My face shall not be seen.”

 

As I returned to bed, trying to go back to sleep, this feeling of longing for the Father came over me. I began to cry silently, not wanting to wake my wife. As this was happening, I could hear voices saying, “Franklin’s crying; Franklin is sad.”  I began to say inside of myself, “Daddy I want to be with you; I want to go somewhere with you.”

 

The deep longing inside continued for a while (the Father does not like to see me sad).  In a vision, I saw the inside of a travel agency, and there were magazines of different travel locations. As I walked in that part of the building, I looked at the magazines, trying to decide where I wanted to go.  I picked one up, but I could not remember where its destination was.  I finished looking at it, and I began to put it back on the table with my right hand. Instead of it going back on the table, it was as if I was now inside someone’s office.  Before the magazine could hit the table, it landed in a Man’s hand. As He took it, I turned to see who it was.  He was a big, black man. As I looked at Him, He had the reddest eyes and the biggest hands that I have ever seen. As we sat there at His desk looking intently at each other, I knew it was Daddy. -Prophet F. Battle

 

 

The Fight -MID 1970s

The first time I saw my angels, it was in a dream, and I was fighting with some demons. I asked the Lord to let me see my angels, so that I may be strengthened.  It was raining at the time, and as I looked outside my house, I saw two men dressed in black like old Jewish men with hats.   As I looked at them, they were standing in the rain but they were not getting wet. When I saw that, I felt empowered and won the fight with the demons. -Prophet F. Battle

 

 

Patreen -MID 1980s

In the mid-1980s, I had a series of dreams that lasted about three weeks. In these dreams, I was at my apartment in southwest Atlanta, Georgia.  In each of my dreams, it would be raining, and this big ball would appear at my window.  Out of it would come a number of small lightning bolts that were directed at me.  I remember running, jumping and diving out of the way and the lightning would just miss me; I am talking about some scary times! When the lightning stopped, there would always be a black hearse that would pull up in the front of the apartment and blow its horn.  The driver would yell, “Is Patreen there?”  My response would be, “No, there is no one here by that name.” It would always be very dark inside the hearse, so I could never see the driver.  These dreams gave me a healthy fear of lightning, to say the least.

 

After the dreams stopped, one day soon after, I had the urgency to go and pay my light bill.  It was raining heavily when I left home. I drove down Campbellton Road, going to Greenbrier Mall, and I heard someone call my name.  I said, “Lord, that sounded like Brother Steve. What do You want me to do?”  At the time it was raining so badly, I could not see anyone.  The Lord said, “You better do what I told you to do and go pay the light bill.” So I proceeded to Georgia Power Company, which was at the mall. I stayed there for maybe an hour, then left to return home. As I approached the apartment complex, the rain had stopped. There was a police officer standing on the street directing traffic, and as I was passing him, I could see there was this yellow thing (maybe a tarp) covering something on the ground by his feet. I was thinking, “What is that?” because there was a TV crew there filming as well. I returned home and did not think about it again.

 

A few days later, a couple of my friends stopped by from the church.  One of them asked me if I had heard about Brother Steve, and I asked, “What about him?” He continued to say, “He was killed the other day on Campbellton Road. He was struck by lightning; it was on TV.”  I was shocked, and as they left, the Lord gave me a vision of the events of that day Brother Steve was killed.  In it, I could see myself driving down Campbellton Road, but this time, when I heard him call my name, I stopped to pick him up.  Just before he got into the truck, there was a huge explosion and the truck blew up completely in the big ball of fire.  As I was watching this in the vision, the Lord said to me, “If you had stopped, that is exactly what would have happened. I had already given the command to do it, and it was going to be carried out no matter what. And the angel who carried it out was Patreen.” Thank the Lord for obedience. -Prophet F. Battle

 

 

ANGEL’S FOOD -1986

A few years ago, I had a dream, and in it, I was with a group of men. I could only recognize one of them.  We were in the third heaven, walking, and someone said, “Let’s go down and get some angel food.”  Then we ran down a hill into a huge garden of what looked like giant corn stalks - they were so tall.  We had to climb up on them so that the weight of our bodies could cause them to bend down enough for us to eat some of it.  As we were doing this, it was as if we did not want anyone to know that we were there.  When we were able to make the stalk bend over far enough, I was able to pull the husk back of what appeared to be an ear of corn.  Although on the outside it looked like corn, the color was green, and when it was opened, it looked like a brown cinnamon swirl and tasted like buttered rolls (like the ones my wife makes); then the dream ended. -Prophet F. Battle

 

 

A BLOW-OUT -1980s

In the early Eighties, my family and I were in the car traveling on I-20 going home, and I heard this loud voice that said, “Tell everyone to put their seat belts on.” I looked around to see who was talking to me in the car. I did not say anything at the time, but someone else said, “We need to put our seat belts on.” I do not remember if it was my wife or one of the kids.  As soon as they were all strapped in, there was a blow-out on the front of the car, while we were traveling 60 mph, but everyone was okay. -Prophet F. Battle

 

 

FACE TO FACE -1985

One night, as I was sleeping, The Lord said to me, “Ask Me to let you see an angel,” and I did so.  As I opened my eyes from sleep, there was this very handsome black man looking at me.  His face was so close to mine that I could see every one of his eyelashes. His eyes were brown, and the skin of his face was so smooth; there were no imperfections on it at all.  As I continued looking at him in amazement, I did not know what to say, and the only thing that came out of my mouth was “Boo!”  I laughed about that for a long time. -Prophet F. Battle
