Prophetic Experiences


Frederick Drummond's ministry is the product of four major spiritual experiences that he had with God over the last 40 plus years.


In 1965, at the age of 18 he heard the gospel of the kingdom for the first time and was converted that Sunday night during the services of a small Baptist church that his friend finally convinced him to attend. His was one of those unique conversions that radically changed him to the core on the spot. Ever since, he has wanted to share his faith with everyone. This was the first major spiritual experience of his life.

Spiritual Baptism.

A year later, at the age of 19, the second one followed. He was asked to read the Scriptures during a special Saturday evening service at a rather large neighboring Presbyterian church. Everything was arranged, and that evening he sat in the packed church with the minister's son on one side of the auditorium, while the white-haired senior minister of the church and his ministerial friends sat on the other side. When the time finally came for him to be introduced to read the Scripture, the white-haired old preacher stood up behind his pulpit, and to his surprise announced that he was handing the service over to the young Frederick Drummond. To get the full impact of this announcement on that 19-year old boy who had never stood up in front of a congregation in his life, you need to understand him a little better. He wasn't a public speaker. In fact, he was a very fearful person whose mouth dried up and whose knees literally knocked together whenever he was asked to speak publicly in class. On top of that, put him in a strange church with two older ministers and their expectant congregation and you might begin to understand his dilemma. He jumped to his feet with his Bible in his hand and made his way to the pulpit at the front of the church, all the way mumbling under his breath to God, "What am I going to do? I am not a preacher and now I have to preach to the biggest congregation I have ever seen in my life!" Then he quickly said to God, "I will do it by faith. Please help me, God, and I will give you all the glory."

The moment he stood behind that pulpit, turned to his Scripture reading, and opened his mouth to speak, he became another man. He was supernaturally empowered from on high - filled with the Holy Ghost in a very respectable way in that very proper Presbyterian church. At the end of the service the old white-haired minister took him by the hand and exclaimed to that 19-year-old boy, "I have never heard such preaching. I have never seen such power." When he got home later that night and was finally alone, he thanked God for his new-found anointing and promised to never again question the power of it to effectively deliver God's Word whenever and wherever He so desired. This baptism in the Spirit was Frederick's second major spiritual experience.

Commitment to the Truth.

His third major spiritual experience with God took place about a year later, in 1967.  It was born out of a burden that God put in his heart to find real answers to hurting people's problems.  He became very frustrated with the shallow solutions to life's problems in most churches.  It seemed as though the universal solution to people with serious problems was reduced to ostracizing them and sometimes even throwing them out of their churches to get rid of the embarrassment.  He believed God for more than this.

The experience took place in a little tool shed in his friend's back yard.  He felt the need to be alone with God, went in and shut the metal door behind him, and fell on his face before his Maker.  He prayed a very dangerous prayer that God heard with far-reaching consequences that God has required of him to this very hour.  He committed his life to finding out the truth in all things.  Yes, that afternoon he made a covenant with God to seek after the wisdom of Solomon by devoting himself to seeking the truth according God's Word in everything he would ever experience and have to go through from that day forward.  This was a very inconvenient resolve that would have far-reaching repercussions, and later in life would provide the explanation for why he has gone through so many outrageous experiences.  Only God's supernaturally, imported faith in a man could sustain him in it all. 

This was a costly prayer, and he can honestly say that he has never gone back on it.  From that day to this, he has never gone through anything, whether good or bad, that he did not require himself to seek God's face for the real answers, for the good of himself and others.  Through everything he has always sought the face of God and His good and acceptable and perfect will.  This prayer set him apart from his peers on a pilgrimage that few would want to pursue, let alone stick to down through the decades.  Because of it, today he brims with spiritual understanding and holy wisdom to the glory of Christ and His grace.

A Vision.

The fourth major spiritual experience in his life was the most unnerving.  It is something that he does not often talk about.  It happened 20 years later in 1987 in a motel room in Utica, NY.  He and two prayer partners had been ministering to God for about six weeks, praying, reading the Word of God, and sharing as God led them.  One afternoon, during a time of intense prayer, FAD heard in his spirit man, "Come aside to the far end of the room by the door, because I want to speak to you."  He obeyed and lay prostrate on the ground with his hands at his sides and his eyes shut, waiting on God.

Something happened that he had never experienced before.  Suddenly he was in the spirit and he saw himself prostrate before someone clad in sandals whom he could only see from the knees down.  He knew Who it was and what was going on.  The voice said, "My son, I have not just called you to take the Word of faith TO the churches, but I have called you as my prophet to put the Word of faith IN the churches.  This alone will usher in a great revival."  He then said, "Put your hands on my feet, because I want to anoint them with power."  Frederick obeyed.  He then said, "Go tell your companions what has just happened to you, and put your hand on them and pray for them."  He stood up and remained by the door for a while, trying to convince himself that this did not just happen and that if he told his companions about it, they would think he had gone off the deep end.  In the end, he obeyed and that began a new ministry for him, one that would change everything forever. 

Of course, like most Christians, FAD has enjoyed numerous, wonderful experiences with God over the last forty plus years, nevertheless these four have helped shape and direct him and his ministry above all others.
