93-year-old Doris Sumner’s supernatural experience with God has changed her entire life.

Sharing her testimony through Seeking His Presence Ministries, Sumner says this vision started during a time of meditating and reading the Word of God with her husband. Soon, it appeared as though her husband was gone, and there was a divine presence in the room with her.

“This presence spoke to me. He said, ‘I am God,'” Sumner says. “He spoke to my heart. He spoke to me in the spirit. He didn’t show me His face, but His presence was like nothing I had ever felt. It never happened to me before as I marveled at His presence.”

Sumner says in this vision God took her hand and she began to walk with Him. She says their communication happened in the spirit as He led her along.

“There’s not anything greater than the presence of God,” Sumner says.

In the vision, Sumner and God were walking toward an entrance. Where God was leading her was shocking and remarkable.

“He said, ‘This is the door to the third heaven,'” God impressed to Sumner.

Realizing how majestic the third heaven is from reading in Scripture, Sumner says she told God she was unsure if she wanted to walk through the door yet. She feared she may not be able to come back out of it. Sumner further notes that she wanted to stay here on earth to stand with Jesus to intercede on behalf of her loved ones and her church family.

“I told Him in my vision, ‘I want to stand with you if you will let me,'” Sumner says.

She says God guided her, turning her around to head back. She then saw her husband again in their study with his Bible open. However, Sumner says the overwhelming presence of God and the door to the third heaven wasn’t the only thing she saw during this vision. She saw the broken, tortured back of another man.

“He was so wounded. He was extremely wounded. His back was broken and deformed,” Sumner says. “His body was so wounded that it looked like it had aged prematurely. He had suffered to the extreme. That’s what it had looked like. That He had suffered to the extreme…I knew that was Jesus. And God let me see Him the way He was when He came back from the cross.”

Sumner says she was grieved, wanting to cry over the perfect person of Christ who was so utterly disfigured, the One who carried the scars and sins of the world. Her heart was full of love and compassion as she saw the agony Christ went through for her.

“I feel that unsurpassing love, and I’m telling you, it’s worth waiting for,” Sumner says.

This miraculous, remarkable vision that God gave to Sumner goes to show that no one is too young or too old to experience Him in incredible ways. He is the one who bore our sins and defeated death and the grave itself. It is through Christ and Christ alone that we are redeemed and can enter into true eternal paradise.
