Shekinah Glory Dust

“Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord rises upon you.  See, darkness covers the earth and thick darkness is over the peoples, but the Lord rises upon you.  Nations will come to your light and kings to the brightness of your dawn.  Lift up your eyes and look around you:  All assemble and come to you from afar, and your daughters are carried on the arm.  Then you will look and be radiant, your heart will throb and swell with joy.”

Isaiah 60: 1 – 5

On Sunday, March 7, 1999, as Max Greiner, Jr. prayed to God about serious problems in his family, the visible “Shekinah Glory” of God, as described in Isaiah 60: 1 – 5, and Exodus 34: 29 – 35, suddenly began to appear, in tangible form in front of his eyes, at the Greiner’s studio/home in Kerrville, Texas.

This “last days” amazing phenomenon is happening all over the world, to Christians of all denominations.  Many Christians have observed the sparkling substance on themselves, or nearby, thinking somehow they accidentally encountered glitter.  Many other Christians are totally unaware that the substance is on them, until curious observers point it out.  The sparkles also form on non-believers, as a means to introduce them to the Gospel of Jesus Christ. 

The particles are usually golden, but also come in several colors including silver, red, blue and green.  They are similar in appearance to fine glitter, or glitter make-up.  They range in size from very tiny dust particles, to flakes 3/32” in size, and actually materialize “out of thin air.” Max has watched the particles form at sea level at the beach, and 30,000 feet in the air, as he traveled on a jet.  He has seen the sparkling particles form in all temperatures, ranging from well below freezing to 105 degrees. The particles can be observed and photographed as they supernaturally form, on people or objects.

The truth is that the Holy Spirit of God is again working this amazing “Shekinah Glory” miracle in our generation.   He is using this supernatural, sparkling substance to bring the “lost” to Christ, and to encourage and build the faith of His own children.  This appears to be the primary reason why God is working this “sign and wonder” miracle in our time.

In the lives of the Greiners, this “manifest glory of God” first appeared on the floor, walls, door and doorframe of an unfinished bathroom, which Max used as a “prayer closet.”  The unusual particles next began to form on Max, Sherry, and their daughter, Diana Shay.  Then, the substance spread to their entire home/studio, cars, shop, office, employees, extended family members, pets, and eventually thousands of other people, as the Greiners witnessed about Jesus Christ, and the miracle working power of the Holy Spirit! 

This manifestation of God’s holy presence, began with a few golden particles at first, but eventually increased to hundreds and thousands.  Almost immediately, this amazing manifestation of God, or “anointing” began to follow the Greiners, wherever they traveled.  The sparkles would suddenly appear on the clothes and skin of others, as the Greiners simply prayed, or witnessed about Jesus and the wonderful works of God.  On numerous occasions, the particles formed on people without their knowledge, who were totally unaware, but just happened to be sitting or standing next to the Greiners!

This anointing has followed the Greiner family everyday since it first began on March 7, 1999.  It appears almost every time the Greiners pray, witness, or lift up Jesus Christ publicly.  Max and Sherry have personally watched this “Glory Dust” form on thousands of people, during the first five years of the manifestation.  The miracle has even occurred thousands of miles away from Max, as he prayed over the telephone, or witnessed on television or radio.

The phenomenon was even witnessed by hundreds of thousands of viewers around the world, when the Holy Spirit’s “Glory Dust” appeared on “live” international television, as Max shared his testimony for Christ.  He has used this wonderful miracle to lead hundreds to salvation in Christ, and stretch the faith of many “comfortable” Christians, who thought the days of God’s miracles were past!

Max was one of a half a dozen people in the USA , who first received this “Glory Dust” anointing from the Holy Spirit.  God sovereignly bestowed this anointing on Max, even before he understood it, or knew about the others God had called to share this “last days” miracle. 

These first people, all “evangelists at heart”, experienced the “Shekinah Glory” manifestation on a continuing, daily basis in their lives, and were able to impart this anointing to others, who had teachable spirits and were hungry for more of God.  

This miracle of God’s visible “Glory Dust” first appeared in the North America in 1998, with the arrival and testimony of a Christian mother from Brazil , named Silvania Machado.  She came to Ashland, Virginia in August of 1998 to share her story of salvation and dramatic supernatural healing at Calvary Pentecostal Ministries.  There she imparted the anointing to Ruth Ward Heflin and Jane Lowder.  This anointing was next imparted to Southern Baptist Pastor, Dr. Bob Shattles by Miss Heflin.  In the spring of 1999, God gave the anointing to Mahesh Chavda, Bill Hart and Max Greiner, Jr.   Since this time, this anointing has manifested in many other people around the world. 

The common denominator with all these people, men and woman of all ages, races and denominational backgrounds, appears to be they all have an extremely strong passion for Jesus Christ, and a burning desire to lead others to Christ in salvation.  They also have, humble, teachable spirits, and are willing to experience God in new ways, without placing restrictions on how the Holy Spirit can manifest His power.  They exhibit a boldness and willingness to witness the miracles of God in their lives, and are not concerned by what is said about them by others, including “religious” people. All of these “vessels of the Lord” appear to carry the anointing of an “evangelist”, and use the manifestation to lead thousands to Jesus.

It is also interesting to note, that God did not initially give this unusual anointing to the well known, high profile, Christian preachers, evangelists, or other TV and radio celebrities.  Instead, he chose a mother in Brazil who was dieing of cancer, a “heavy-set” Pentecostal lady from Virginia , and a “radical for Jesus”, Southern Baptist pastor to introduce this miracle to the modern world.

Max was the first to have the mysterious sparkling substance rigorously tested by secular scientists.  He always knew the substance was from God, because it appeared when he acknowledged Jesus Christ.  However, Max wanted to know if the particles were actually real gold, or some other precious metal. 

Without knowing anything about the origin of the substance, senior PhD scientists at the College of Geophysics & Geology at Texas A& M University in College Station , TX ran every possible test on the unknown matter, to determine its exact composition.  The Head of the Department personally called Max on the telephone, shocked by his surprising test results. 

He told Max that the particles were not gold, or silver, or any known element on earth!  The scientist said they were a “new, created substance.”  They were not made of any known matter in the universe!  The scientists did not know that throughout Holy Scripture, gold represents God, and oil represents the Holy Spirit.

Electron microscope photographs of the smallest particles revealed they were all square in shape, like the Holy of Holies in the original Jewish Temple!  They had an “unknown oil based molecular structure”, surrounded by a “thin unknown metallic coating.”  Since the scientists taught evolution, they logically assumed the particles were some new, unknown plastic, rather than a new creation of God. 

Once the scientists learned that the particles had formed supernaturally, when the name of Jesus Christ was lifted up, they wanted nothing more to do with the unique matter, and declined to do futher research.  They realized that the particles were “hard evidence” of God’s existence, which meant the theory of evolution they were teaching was a lie.  To date, no scientist anywhere in the world, has been able to prove these sparkling particles are a hoax, or manmade.  This is why the scientific community is so fearful of the mysterious substance.

Max was also the first person to witness this miracle publicly on national and international television.  He was also the first to share the miracle and evidence with top evangelical leaders in the Body of Christ, across the USA .  Max believes God selected him for this assignment, because of his fourth generation Southern Baptist background, and because he was an evangelical “layman”, willing to publicly witness the controversial miracle, without “religious” restrains, or concern for “the opinions of men.”

This visible glory of God first began appearing in the Greiner family during serious personal trials, at a time when Max was creating “The Coming King”® sculpture.  This historically unique sculpture depicts Jesus Christ returning “in glory”, at the end of time (Rev 19: 11). 

The Greiners believe the shiny particles are actually the visible, “Shekinah Glory” of God, mentioned throughout the Bible, starting with Exodus 34: 29 - 35.  The sparkling substance first appeared on Moses, when he came down from Mount Sinai with the Ten Commandments.  Today’s “Glory Dust” looks, and acts exactly like the strange substance described in the Bible.

The following testimony, photography, information and letters are provided here as additional evidence of this amazing, “on-going” miracle.  Max has personally taken nine hours of digital videotape, which documents the manifestation, and the testimony of most of the original people God anointed to share this miracle with our generation.  These people include, Silvania Machado from Brazil , Ruth Ward Heflin, Dr. Bob Shattles, Dr. Mahesh Chavda, and Dr. Bill Hart. Greiner Audio Testimony Tapes, #23 through #26 also share dozens of actual accounts of how God used this “Glory Dust” to bring people to salvation, and supernatural healing through Jesus.

Max asks, that as you review this controversial evidence, to determine if it is true, please do the “Jesus Test”, as prescribed in the Bible.  Jesus explained to His disciples the correct way to determine if a person, or miracle was from Him.  In brief, He said His believers should “test the fruit and the root”.  The “Fruit” is “good works”, and people coming to Jesus in salvation, as explained in Mathew 12: 33, and Galatians 5:  22.  The “Root” is Jesus Christ Himself, as explained in John 15: 5, and Romans 15: 12.  This simple “Jesus Test” reveals fakes and counterfeits, while confirming the genuine.

This “Glory Dust” manifestation easily passes the “Jesus Test”, since tens of thousands are coming to faith in Christ, around the world, through this miracle.  Remember, Jesus used dramatic miracles in the first century to attract people to the Gospel.  He is still using miracles today to attract them to the Gospel, in our century!  Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever. (Hebrews 13: 8).

WARNING to skeptical believers:  If you still do not believe this miracle is real, please do not attribute it to Satan, lest you commit the “unforgivable sin” (Matthew 12: 31 - 32).  To attribute a miracle worked by the Holy Spirit of God to Satan, or his demons, is an extremely serious matter to the Lord.  Please don’t make this mistake, for your own sake.

Finally, there is one other way to find out if this testimony is true.  Simple pray to God, in the name of Jesus, to reveal His visible “Glory Dust” to you right now.  All you have to do is ask, believe, and then give God at least five minutes of faith! It is impossible to please God without faith, according to Hebrews 11.

First, get under a bright light.  Direct, bright sunshine is the very best.  Diffused light, such as overcast sky or florescent light are the worst, since the light is diffused.  The particles must reflect light to be seen.  You have to “be in the Light to see God’s glory!”

Next, hold out your hands, open in front of you, and pray for God to reveal His “Shekinah Glory”to you now.  Slowly rotate your hands in the light.  The particles will begin to form first on the palms of your hands and fingertips.  Usually at first, they will be very tiny, but they can increase in size and number, as you continue to pray and praise God.

Behold, the glory of the Lord is upon you! 

Supernatural Anointing Oil of the Holy Spirit might also pool up in your palms.  This manifestation occasionally happens, in addition to the “Glory Dust”.  Your hands will smell fragrant like the finest anointing oil, and look shiny, or wet. This is the fragrance of Jesus Christ. 

Finally, check around you and on your clothes, as often the particles form there too.  Look in the mirror too, under a bright light.  God’s “Glory Dust” may be on your face!  Once the particles solidify, you can pick them up with transparent tape, and put them in your Bible.  A good place is next to Isaiah 60: 1 – 5. This scripture is fulfilled in your presence!

If God blesses you by working this miracle, there is a reason.  First, He wants you to know He loves you, and wants you to believe in His Son, His Word and His miracles.  He also wants you to walk holy before Him.  If you haven’t already given your life to Jesus Christ, now is the time.  Just sincerely pray: 

God, I believe in you and thank you for allowing me to see your visible glory with my own eyes.  I give my life to you now.  Please forgive me of all my sins.  I believe Jesus Christ is God and that He died for me on the cross.   I promise to serve you all the days of my life.  Fill me with your Holy Spirit so I might live my life in a way that is pleasing to you.  Thank you for saving me and taking me to Heaven when I die.  In the name of Jesus I pray.  AMEN!

If you just prayed with sincerity, Christ is now your Lord and Savior.  You are “Born Again.”  Please click here to learn more about your salvation decision, and the supernatural Gifts God wants to give you now.

Would you please write us, and let us know if you received Christ as your Savior, or actually saw God’s golden Glory Dust?  We love to hear the stories of how God touched someone through our testimony for Christ!   

We pray now that God richly blesses you in your life,  and walk with Jesus! AMEN!
