The simple answer is ‘yes’. Amanda Wells (self-described on her website as a prophet, teacher, mystic seer, international speaker in 72 nations, published author and pioneer of prophetic schools), has been observed flying ‘off the rails’ and flying ‘off the handle’.
We could be forgiven for thinking Amanda has been watching too many Disney movies in her spare time. Not only does she claim that people have the ability to fly, Amanda says she’s ‘just finished a teaching for my mentoring group’.
Amanda Wells uses the typical NAR terms arguments to justify her claims – ‘If the New Agers can do it, we can too’ and ‘the devil imitates not creates’. From Amanda’s perspective, apparently we’ve been too ‘dumbed down’ by the devil to be able to ascend and float, ‘…..the New Agers do it and call it levitating’. These occult practices are even being attempted in some churches i.e. Bethel, today, despite being expressly forbidden by Scripture.
“Then if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Christ!’ or ‘There he is!’ do not believe it. For false christs and false prophets will arise and perform great signs and wonders, so as to lead astray, if possible, even the elect. See, I have told you beforehand. So, if they say to you, ‘Look, he is in the wilderness,’ do not go out. If they say, ‘Look, he is in the inner rooms,’ do not believe it.” Matthew 24:23-26
But there is a bigger problem at work here – her followers would have to believe in a kenotic Christ in order to even attempt this nonsense. Their justification? If Jesus was just a man filled with the Holy Spirit and he could ‘ascend’, so can they.
Not surprisingly we note that Amanda Wells is yet again guilty of plagiarism, seen in aspects of her article below, rewording it ever so slightly from ‘Mysteries, Marvels and Miracles: In the Lives of the Saints by Joan Carroll Cruz‘.

WE ARE WALKING ON ….AIR
I’m sure we’ve all heard the song ‘ I’m walking on sunshine… waoooo’
Well the bible says we literally walk on air!!!
I believe we have missed so much in the bible, and in our relationship with the Father. We have been scared off everything, ‘in case its the Devil.’ We have more faith in what he can do than in what our Jesus can do! He can’t create, he can only imitate! So have we been dumbed down to believe we are less than what we were really created to be??
Adam was created the most marvellous being! Not how we look today. Many have heard my teaching on Adam (you can find it on our http://www.kingdomcatalystsacademy.com in free download of kingdom E Book). Can you imagine what Adam looked like and what he could do!
I look and think, ‘wow compared to the mystic saints of old and some of the old revivalists we are living a very ‘low supernatural life!’ We think the ultimate is a miracle of healing and or raising the dead, but I want to tell you ….. THERE IS MORE
I have just finished a teaching for my mentoring group and I wanted to share some of it with you. Next year in KCA we will expand on this and I tell you, you will NOT want to miss it!
Ps 89 ‘Blessed are the people who know the passwords of praise, who shout on parade in the bright presence of God.
Delighted, they dance all day long; they know
who you are, what you do—they can’t keep it quiet!
Your vibrant beauty has gotten inside us— you’ve been so good to us! We’re walking on air!
All we are and have we owed to God, Holy God of Israel, our King!’
When Jesus came to earth He restored mankind back to where and who they were supposed to be. In His last deed before He ascended watch the word to Heaven … He floated off the ground, right off, and then He vanished!
And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he rose from the ground; and a cloud received him out of their sight
Jesus showed the world…
I owned the earth…. The cross
I own hell…. Took keys
I own the sky….
Many of the mystics of old floated skywards, many were seen doing it, and many did it privately?
Isaiah 60:8 Who are these that fly as a cloud, and as the doves to their windows?
It’s called ascension, floating…… the New Agers do it and call it levitating.
It actually became a phenomenon of the mystics through their prayer life and was often associated with their ecstatic encounters with the love of God.
The law Gravity it seems comes under the authority of the law of Love!
Suor Maria Villani, a famous Dominican nun in the seventeenth century, herself a candidate for beatification:
On one occasion [she informs her director] when I was in my cell I was conscious of a new experience. I felt myself seized and ravished out of my senses, and that so powerfully that I found myself lifted up completely by the very soles of my feet, just as the magnet draws up a fragment of iron, but with a gentleness that was marvellous and most delightful. At first I felt much fear, but afterwards I remained in the greatest possible contentment and joy of spirit. Though I was quite beside myself, still, in spite of that, I knew that I was raised some distance above the earth, my whole body being suspended for a considerable space of time. Down to last Christmas eve (1618) this happened to me on five different occasions.
(Friar Herbert Thurston a historian on mystics.) He was a Christian sceptic LOL
At one point when she was preaching a whole bunch of nuns had to sit on her to keep her down
In letters she would express being overtaken by an inexhaustible flame of love which sparked an arrow in her heart. She had to drink excessive amounts of water every day. When she did those around said it sounded like a hissing sound… water on hot iron. When an incision was made in her heart at an autopsy (d1670) they saw smoke coming out of her heart as you would from a furnace. The heat was so intense surgeons Dr Dominick Trifone (in an affidavit) and Francesco Pinto had to stop the autopsy.
She was called the Furnace of the love of God. She declared she had a furnace of love within… she was correct.
She called the encounters of love that overwhelmed her and she would be lifted off the ground raptures of love where she was in His Majesty’s perfect will, and there was One, the Lord Jesus who was so much mightier than us. She went on to say that when these encounters happened the deep fear of God would overwhelm those around fear of offending God and all would be caught up in the rapture of His love. She said I never tried to be taken off the ground I just was deeply so deeply in love with my Saviour!
St Francis was another where his body always at communion would rise in the air. When he descended his face was a beam of light and his skin translucent like a diamond or crystal. He said it represented the burning love within his soul. One day Brother Leo found St Francis outside above the tall trees, surrounded by radiance.
St Catherine of Sienna would fly up stairs never touching a step,
She was another one that had fiery love and burned in the midst of winter and would heat those around her. She said she wondered how she continued living with such an excess of love within for her saviour Jesus
Joseph of Copertino would float 2/ 3 hours a day and he would dance in the air.
(taken from Joan Cruz)
Ezekiel 8:1 – 3 ‘In the sixth year, in the sixth month and the fifth day, while I was sitting at home meeting with the leaders of Judah, it happened that the hand of my Master, God, gripped me. When I looked, I was astonished. What I saw looked like a man—from the waist down like fire and from the waist up like highly burnished bronze. He reached out what looked like a hand and grabbed me by the hair. The Spirit swept me high in the air and carried me in visions of God to Jerusalem, to the entrance of the north gate of the Temple’s inside court ‘
John G Lake saw people in his meetings float off their seats
Bobby Connor the same happened to him while preaching and also Kenneth Hagin Snr. danced in the air.
Can you imagine when our love walk with our beautiful Jesus, becomes so ecstatic, blissful and rapturous that we start really moving in the supernatural like the saints of old. They didn’t have TV shows, they didn’t have Facebook live, they had a burning love, a passion unquenchable, a fire uncontainable, a prayer life so intimate with the lover of their soul that walking in the realm of Heaven was just a cross over while on earth.
‘Father may our love be so rapturous, ecstatic and euphoric it takes us places we could only imagine. Father let us be the generation to truly restore the supernatural again. Father take us off Facebook and let us pant (agar in Hebrew = ascend) after you, may they see us as a burning furnace wherever we tread.’
Dont forget you can enrol in Kingdom Catalysts Academy www.kingdomcatalystacademy.com, its an online Bible school, but we believe in encounters, the supernatural to believe for more than we could imagine. It is intended for those who want to mature as a son and live in the Kingdom of God.It is for those who want to understand the mysteries and who want to go into the deeper truths of the Word of God. If you are wanting to build intimacy and relationship with Father.

The reality is this – if Amanda Wells ever really flies, it’s probably because she finally found some ‘pixie dust’!
