On Friday, July 17 2015, I went into complete acute respiratory failure due to a perfect storm of health issues coming all at once. At the time, I was 51 years old and had been serving as a full-time police officer with the New Market Police Department in New Market Virginia for nine years.
Within 48 hours, I went “CODE BLUE” twice. I was placed on life support, breathing with a respirator, had a tracheostomy surgery, and spent two weeks in a coma. I was in the hospital for over five weeks followed by nearly four months of in-home care.
The first time I went “CODE BLUE,” I immediately went through a tunnel. When I came out of the tunnel, I immediately heard the undeniable voice of the Lord say to me, “MY CHURCH, does not really believe I’m coming back SOON!”
He repeated, “MY CHURCH does not really believe I’m coming back soon!”
Over and over, the Lord repeated this exact same thing to me with more passion and volume EACH TIME. Finally, I raised my hand to get His attention like a school child, and I said, “Lord, yes, we do believe you’re coming back soon! We read about it, sing about it, study about it, and pray about. Lord, we believe you’re coming back soon!”
It was then that the tone of the Lord’s voice changed and He said, “My Church DOES NOT really believe I’m coming back soon, for IF they did, they would NOT be living as they are!”
He then lovingly but firmly pointed His finger at me and said with great passion, “I AM coming back soon and My church is not ready! Now go back and tell the things you have heard and know that your message will not be received!”
I then came back into my body and the Lord sustained my life. I spent three weeks in the Intensive Care Unit, then was transported to progressive care for seven days. Then I was taken to the University of Virginia Transitional Care Facility in Charlottesville Virginia where I received eleven more days of care.
My first night in UVA Care Facility, I had a vision of a small, oval-shaped, bright light. It began to get bigger and bigger and bigger until finally I realized I was standing in a large football stadium at night, all alone, without anyone else present. I looked up at the scoreboard and I saw “2:13”
I then immediately heard the Lords voice say, “MY CHURCH should be living as though this is the two-minute warning!”
Now I’m a huge football fan and God knew I would know EXACTLY what he meant by that. In that last two minutes, a football team makes a mad dash, doing everything they can to win the game. Both teams know the end of the game is at hand and the referee is about to blow the whistle and the game will be OVER!
Several hours after seeing that vision, I was sitting in a wheelchair in my room looking out the window when I heard a knock at my door. I could barely talk at the time due to the tracheostomy surgery, so I whispered, “Come in.”
Two ladies who were obviously part of the UVA medical staff asked if they could come in and speak with me. One of them was going to be my physical therapist and the other my occupational therapist. They started telling me about the treatment plans, but then the conversation took an odd turn when one of them said, “Mr. Breeden can I ask you a personal question?”
I replied, “Of course.”
She asked, “Would you consider yourself a man of faith?”
I told them, “I certainly have not always lived it, but yes, I am a follower of Jesus and a Christian.”
When I said that, they looked at each other and smiled.
I then asked, “Ladies, I’m not offended by your question, but it’s an odd question for medical staff to ask a patient, isn’t it?”
What they said next is almost beyond belief! They said, “Mr. Breeden, “We had NO INTENTIONS of coming in and seeing you this morning. We were both on our way to see other patients, but when we were walking down the hall, each of us going opposite directions, but when we got in front of your door, the number 2 appeared in the spirit and we both saw it on your door. So we asked, ‘Lord what does this number 2 mean?’ Then the Lord said, ‘Go in and ask that man if he knows what the NUMBER 2 means AND HE’LL KNOW EXACTLY what you’re talking about!’”
She then asked me, “What does that mean?”
Keep in mind we had NEVER met and she had no idea about anything I saw in the vision. I then told her about the vision and that the Lord was coming SOON!
Eventually, I was released from the hospital and allowed to go back into law enforcement. It happened just as the Lord had warned. In the first year, I probably told over 50 pastors and men of God about the visions, but they were NOT received, not even by my own church of twenty years and not even by my own pastor. Only one disabled pastor in a small backwoods country Bible Mission asked me to come and share my experience, so I did.
Just a few weeks after my Code Blue experience, the Lord began opening doors for me to share my experience despite the rejection of many. One week before I was to share these visions for the first time in public, I sought the Lord about an issue, which I never understood in the second vision. I could not figure out when I looked at the scoreboard, why did I see “2:13”? Why not just “2:00”?
Then I heard Him speak to my heart, “Read Titus and look at chapter two, verse thirteen. Yes 2:13.”
When I read it, it seemed to jump off the page because I KNEW the Lord had spoken:
Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Savior Jesus Christ; (Titus 2:13)
I’m still a full-time Deputy Sheriff, but now I faithfully share this message wherever doors open. I warn the church and call sinners to repentance. In the last few months, I’ve seen hundreds come to the Lord and get soundly saved. I’ve seen backsliders repent and rededicate their lives to Christ!
