I Cor. 2:9-10
David said, I would have fainted unless I had believed to see the goodness of the lord in the land of the living. He will sustain us! through our earthly existence and future resurrected glorified bodies!
The early saints looked forward to a prepared place.
Keep the wicks trimmed and your oil burning. It’s important that we have our hope in him. Looking forward to our blessed hope !
Hebrews 11:13 these died in faith…prepared for them a city
through faith subdued kingdoms…
they can’t receive fulness until we get there.
we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses
keep running this race with patience your labor is not in vain
He will complete that which he has begun in you.
Matt 5:12, 1 Corinthians 9:4-27; 2 Timothy 2:5 a great reward at judgment seat of Christ for those who remain faithful
“Behold I come quickly and my reward is with me.”
"This mortal shall be changed in the twinkling of an eye." His return is closer than we first believed
We need a deeper revelation of what is ahead.
set our affection on things above. our lives are hidden with Christ
We are in this world but not of. We are ambassadors. We represent the King of Kings. We have been left here with a purpose.
We are laborers in His vineyard, seeing the multitudes as sheep having no shepherd. They are helpless without God.
Their future is damnation if they die in sin!
Romans 2:16 In the day when God shall judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ according to my gospel.
There is a great urgency to warn the wicked to repent and the saints to maintain their righteousness.
John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
We look forward to this. We are not yet fully saved, saved in part but not yet complete.
Romans 8 the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared to the glory which shall be revealed in us.
Like a mother experiencing birth pains of labor, we look forward to the end, results of the labor.
All creation is under damnation because of the commitment of their allegiance to Satan.
God, by his mercy covered Adam and Eve in the garden of Eden.
Jesus is the Last Adam. By one man sin entered and by one man salvation came.
God brought salvation.
There is a groaning in the earth!
all creation is waiting to see what God will do. There is a groaning in the earth. Earhquakes, volcanoes
the earth is in revolt because of the sin that came into the world.
animals will be at peace, sheep and lion will graze together in the end.
There is a shaking chaos and confusion in the earth.
Men’s hearts failing them for fear as we get close to the end of the age.
The imaginations of men’s heart are continually evil. Wickedness abounds.
Romans 8:22,23 For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now. 23And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body.
Our bodies are made from the earth! We are glorified dirt and water. There are 17 elements of the earth that are found in the human body.
God breathed into man’s nostrils, we are spirits from heaven. The spirit came into the physical realm.
find recording here :
spirit and soul and body
the spirit man is converted to the heavenly
Romans 2:16 In the day when God shall judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ according to my gospel.
Ephes 21 you hath he quickened…
you are a soul
Romans 12 I beseech you therefore…renewing of your mind
be born again and connected to the spirit of God
The 5 senses bring messages from the world to our soulish mind, will and emotions.
Now we have messages from the heavenly, so now we have conflict
We must have our mind renewed by the Word of God to discern what the natural senses are saying and line them up with the word of God.
Our body is still connected with the world while the spirit and soul are in agreement. We must keep the body under.
Ephes 2:8 saved by grace through faith
hope that is seen is not hope
verse 24 We are saved by hope of future redemption
faith is the evidence of things hoped for
if we hope for that which we see not…
even we ourselves…the redemption of our body
Heaven has too much glory for these bodies to sustain.
We must have a glorified body! We will get a glorified body!
Moses and Elijah appeared to Peter and John on the mountain with Jesus
Jesus is God! You cannot equate him with Moses.
He is God manifest in the flesh.
In the beginning, God - He is judge!
He will either say, “Enter In….” or “Depart from me”
The mystery of godliness, God was manifest in the flesh.
Jesus himself said, I am the way the truth and the life. There is one mediator between man and God. We cannot overemphasize this.
There is a great falling away amongst us.
Away from that great hope. Titus 2:11 For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men teaching us that we should all live godly.
Our job is to do as much as we can to be witnesses.
He that liveth and believeth in me shall never die
There is no fear of death for the saints of God.
Those who have deceased loved ones can rejoice in the memories of them but focus on the glory to come! Rejoice in the things God allowed you to share with them.
If they knew the Lord, they are now present with Him. Rejoice, Celebrate their life!
Titus 2:12 Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world.
keep ourselves unstained from the world.
Looking for our blessed hope and great God.
The Lord himself shall descend with a shout and the voice of the archangel
so shall we ever be with the lord.
our glorified bodies will reconnect with our souls
glorified bodies are adaptable to heaven
We shall see Him as He is. We will be known even as He is known.
Beloved, we are God's children now, and what we will be has not yet appeared; but we know that when he appears we shall be like him, because we shall see him as he is. 1 Corinthians 13:12
There are Three distinct sounds from heaven: the sound of a rushing wind (power), an abundance of rain (Provision), a trumpet (Presence)
The sound of the trumpet (the presence) feast of trumpets
1 Thessalonians 4:13,16
13 But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope.
16For the LORD himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: 17Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the LORD in the air: and so shall we ever be with the LORD.
Pentecost displayed a sound of power from heaven as of a mighty rushing wind. accompanied by cloven tongues,
the enemy is on the rampage, knowing that he has a short time
These are the days of Elijah. After three years of drought, Elijah bowed himself in a fetal position to ask for the rains to return. He heard the sound as the sound of an abundance of rain.
God speaks before you see in the natural. Elijah had sent his servant out 7 times to look for the rain. Only on the 7th time, did the servant see a small cloud.
We must stay in the secret place with God.
God said, I will that you have life abundantly
He will lead you. He is an ever present help In times of trouble.
There is a shout and the sound of the trumpet. Everyone will not hear it because there is so much going on.
There is a cry coming soon. “Behold the bridegroom cometh.”
The sound of the trumpet will be heard by some.
1John3 behold what manner of love the father has bestowed upon us.
Don’t ever let the devil convince you that God does not love you!
We love Him because we know he first loved us.
When HE shall appear, we shall be like him.
We have the hope of the rapture and His return.
“They looked for a city whose builder and maker is God”
We look for a glorious house
though our earthly house
We earnestly desire to be clothed upon
Jesus promised: If I go away, where I am there you shall be also.
This is preparation for heaven.
He who hath this hope in himself purifies himself.
Be a light in your witness, your lifestyle.
Jesus is coming soon. We rejoice because our names are written in heaven!
Unity comes by Love
James 4:8-12. Don't speak evil of one another
•One Accord, One Mind
Philippians 2:1 http://bible.com/1/php.2.1-9.KJV
If there be therefore any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any bowels and mercies, Fulfil ye my joy, that ye be likeminded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind. Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves. Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others. Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name:
Jewish bible comparison:
Phil 2:1-10. http://bible.com/1275/php.2.1-8.CJB
Therefore, if you have any encouragement for me from your being in union with the Messiah, any comfort flowing from love, any fellowship with me in the Spirit, or any compassion and sympathy, then complete my joy by having a common purpose and a common love, by being one in heart and mind. Do nothing out of rivalry or vanity; but, in humility, regard each other as better than yourselves — look out for each other’s interests and not just for your own. Let your attitude toward one another be governed by your being in union with the Messiah Yeshua: Though he was in the form of God, he did not regard equality with God something to be possessed by force. On the contrary, he emptied himself, in that he took the form of a slave by becoming like human beings are. And when he appeared as a human being, he humbled himself still more by becoming obedient even to death — death on a stake as a criminal!
Spirit of Wisdom and Revelation of His power toward us
Ephes 1:15-23. Wherefore I also, after I heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus, and love unto all the saints, Cease not to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers; That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him: The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints, And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power, Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places, Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come: And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church, Which is his body, the fullness of him that filleth all in all.
ESTEEM ONE ANOTHER
Philippians 2:1-10. see Verse 3. "Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves."
SERVE ONE ANOTHER
Galatians 5:13-15. For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another.
COMPASSION FOR ONE ANOTHER
1John 3:14. We know that we have passed from death unto life, because we love the brethren. He that loveth not his brother abideth in death. But whoso hath this world's good, and seeth his brother have need, and shutteth up his bowels of compassion from him, how dwelleth the love of God in him? My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth. And this is his commandment, That we should believe on the name of his Son Jesus Christ, and love one another, as he gave us commandment.
Lessons from " the jewish code" and "Steps to Revival"
from" The Jewish Code"
God’s life principles –
civil law relationship with others,
moral laws personal conduct ,
sacrificial laws how to put God first in our spiritual life
feasts of Israel are symbolic, shadows of the heavenly timeframe
on day of atonement, the nation receives the verdict “forgiven”
Teshuva ends on the Day of Atonement (after the 10 days of Awe)
the season of Teshuvah – 10 days of awe - root wordmeaning tuv turn, repent
special prayers to ask God’s forgiveness - recited early in the morning in some communities
letters are written to correct wrongs and ask forgiveness from others
these words are often heard during this season: “May your name be inscribed in the Book of Life”
Help with clearing our conscience for the work ahead
Steps to Revival, (Pat Robertson) :. If we want revival we must pray in desperation like our lives depend on it. Given the terrorist threat to America, our lives may indeed depend on it.
“You will seek me and find me when you seek for me with all your heart”. Jeremiah 29:13
If my people who are called by my name repent…I will heal their land.
2 Chronicles 7:14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
It was based on this instruction and the leading of the Holy Spirit that Brother Pat Robertson adeptly composed a list of steps we must take to see revival in our hearts and in our land.
Step 1 Humility: lay down our misconceptions of God and cast down pride of every form: “I will” do, My way, my will, my plan, my concept of God, my concept of righteousness.
we exalt our throne like Satan did in Genesis. Situational ethics
pride of family, finance and accomplishment, material possessions pride of nationality, employment position, religious affiliation, knowledge, education must realize that we are sinners without God.
Cry out – “God be merciful to me a sinner
“They justified God being baptized with the baptism of John.” We can either justify ourselves or justify God. justifying ourselves leads to deadness
“our pride before God is like pus-filled sores on a leper”. Ask God to forgive pride in whatever form it takes in our lives.
Step 2. Prayer
Acts the people prayed for Apostle Peter to be spared. “stretched outedly”
not aimless prayers, distracted by business, etc. They prayed with every fiber of their being for Peter’s release.”
pray without ceasing – the neighbor with a visiting friend in the middle of the night, the importunate widow and the judge,
“It was not the neighbor’s need nor was it neighborly friendship that prevailed. It was desperation – importunity – that won the day.”
Keep on asking…keep on seeking…keep on knocking ….
“You will seek me and find me when you seek for me with all your heart.” Jeremiah 29:13
Step 3. seek God’s face
(prayer is different from seeking God’s face)
prayer is asking for something – wisdom, health, finances, salvation of loved ones, revival
God instructed Aaron the high priest to bless the people with the following words,.. the lord bless you and keep you… The LORD bless thee, and keep thee:
We are not asking God to do anything, we are seeking God for His presence.
“When you said seek my face, Thy face, o lord, will I seek.” Psalm 27:8
“To strive to restore the mystical bond of fellowship between God and man goes back to creation.”pg. 5
In the beginning the word, Jesus was face to face with the Father .(Chinese translation)
Step 4 Turn from your wicked ways -
Hosea says “break up your fallow ground that the Lord may come and rain righteousness upon you. Sow in righteousness, reap in steadfast love.”
Search me o God and know my heart, and see if there is any wicked way in me. Psalm 129:33
Create in me a clean heart. Psalm 51:10
(8 areas of repentance) The object Is to confess – forsake find mercy and forgiveness – then enter the presence of the Lord. Don’t Hurry! Be honest with yourself about yourself. don’t try to justify your actions
*First – Love the lord thy god with all thy heart, all thy mind and all thy strength. Mark 12:30
*Second - Nevertheless I have somewhat against you, because you have left your first love" Revelation 2:4
*third - if you have aught against any, forgive Mark 11:25
*fourth – the Holy Spirit is the Spirit of truth John:13 Repent of any outstanding lies you have told
*fifth – things lurking in your spirit dealing with sexual sin lay before him your sins and failures
Once you have confessed your sins know that you are forgiven of them.
He made a show of them openly, triumphing in His cross Col 2:15
Write down temptations, transgressions problems privately between you and God
tell Satan this is all covered by the sacrifice of Jesus Christ and that Satan has wasted his effort to destroy you.”
*sixth – slander - write down names of those you have slandered. It is a terrible sin.
*seventh - times when your words have grieved him, disobeyed him, wounded others, been insensitive to the physical or spiritual needs of others you could have helped.
“ This will bring God’s power in your life and serve as a catharsis to your mind and spirit”
*eighth – make peace with your mates (husbands, wives). write down problems, offenses against your mate. Don’t harbor anger, resentment, bitterness, jealousy, unforgiveness against them.
Write things done wrong to your mate, your children, have you loved them, brought them up in the nurture and admonition of the lord or have you been so rigid and authoritarian that they rebelled against you and the lord? Have you been available to talk, to listen carefully to them, and understand their problems, hopes and dreams?
Have you loved your elderly parents, cared for them, showed them the attention they need?
A broken and a contrite heart, O Lord, Thou wilt not despise. God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble. Psalm 51:17
You should have a long list of sins to be repented of.
Take the list and say, “Lord, all of these sins and transgressions I place under the blood of Jesus Christ. I accept our gracious forgiveness and raise you for setting me free. I humbly ask that I may walk in your presence, that you may hear my prayer and send revival to heal my land. In Jesus name. Amen.
Step 5 - Unity (Look for my article on Unity scriptures on the next post )
if 2 or more agree as touching anything they desire.... Matt 18:19
where 2 or more gather together in my name there am I in the midst of them Matt 18:20
on the day of Pentecost, the disciples were together in one accord in one place
forsake not the assembling of ourselves together
believers need to spend large amounts of time alone in earnest prayer and study
once you have recived forgiveness and clearing of sin, be sure to stay close to God.
Watch and pray that ye enter not into temptation.
Watch, for you know not the hour your lord will come.

PRINCE OF PEACE
Prince of Peace Friday and Saturday focus - day 20 and 21 of the 21 day fast
Prince (general, governor, keeper or lord) of peace, safety, happiness, friendliness, health and prosperity)
He is the anointed one, the Christ, the FIRST LOVE OF THE CHURCH and The GLORY OF THE CHURCH, He is the anointed one who brings, governs and keeps peace.
John 14:27 Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
Ephesians 2:13-18 13But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far away have been brought near through the blood of Christ. 14For he himself is our peace, who has made the two one and has destroyed the barrier, the dividing wall of hostility, 15by abolishing in his flesh the law with its commandments and regulations. His purpose was to create in himself one new man out of the two, thus making peace, 16and in this one body to reconcile both of them to God through the cross, by which he put to death their hostility. 17He came and preached peace to you who were far away and peace to those who were near. 18For through him we both have access to the Father by one Spirit.
We praise you Lord! You bring and protect our peace! You Are our peace!
You keep us in perfect peace because we trust in you. (Isaiah 26:3)
additional suggestions from “Who Jesus” is brochure (for contemplation)
Isaiah 61 1-3 The spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me; because the LORD hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound; 2 To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn; 3 To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he might be glorified.
Ephesians 5:25-27 25....Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;26 That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, 27 That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.
Lord, I praise you that you have chosen and empowered us by your spirit to serve as you did during your earthly ministry.
Help us to" loose the bands of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, and to let the oppressed go free, and (to) break every yoke." Isaiah 58:6
I hope you have prospered from the 21 days of prayer and fasting. Surely seeking the face of
God and ingesting the Word of God concerning himself helps one to more fully understand His heart and walk in His ways. We are changed by his Spirit as we seek to know Him, beholding Him in his word and in sweet communion.
Prayer and fasting focus for Thursday and Friday, 1/21 & 22

We are living in the "last hour" before the return of our Lord to get his bride, the church! The time of transition from church age We hear cries of Peace and Safety everywhere, especially in the middle east! The peace agreement between Israel and much of the Arab world has been signed. Dreams of Christ's return are overwhelming!
We see revival all over the world, even in places where the gospel had not been preached! This is yet another important sign of His soon 2nd coming, as he promised that when the gospel has been preached in all the world, he would return. ( Mark 13:10, Matt.24:14)
The young and fearless will take this message of salvation to the lost
The reviews of the young band of riders read, "short time, much accomplished with little resources". They braved harsh conditions, rode at high speeds, even risked their lives to deliver packages, money and messages across the country. They rode for only 18 months. 18 months that were crucial to th development of this nation. Through Civil War, Indian wars, and through the Gold Rush. They delivered the messages of riches, messages of freedom from slavery as well as devastating messages of native American captivity.
I found that during this same time - longer than 18 months, however, the "Circuit Riders" were on the move! These were Godly men - itinerant preachers" who rode from town to town or village to village on horseback. They often stayed in a location, bringing salvation to the lost and helping where help was needed until moving to the next place.
We have had a small window of time in which to repent and take the message of the kingdom of God to the lost. We have an adversary as we press through danger and perils. We must be brave, loving not our own lives. Not selfish. Not fearful. We work with what we have, whether little or much.
Deliver the message of freedom! Freedom from sin, freedom from death, freedom from self. Deliver the message of salvation! Deliver the message of His soon return!
While we look for His return, in this short time of transition, we must make the most of technology as we rush to spread the news of the gospel of salvation . The gospel is being spread in traditional as well as unprecedented ways.
Transitional methods of communication are essential in this time of pandemic.
The Poney Express lasted only 18 months until, with the development of the Western Union global telegraph system, there was no more use for it. During this past week, the Lord impressed upon my spirit suddenly that this transitional communication will be very brief, almost as brief as was that of the Poney Express. There will be no use for this soon, as the return of our Lord will curtail any further communication of salvation. We have to use the methods He sends us quickly!
Similar to the account of 12 very young, fearless, "ignorant and unlearned" disciples of Jesus received and delivered the message of salvation to a world in sin after centuries of darkness and waiting for a redeemer, the message was spread by all means possible, through danger and with loss of lives. The communication of the gospel has been improved in efficiency and speed as technology improved with translation into languages for the nations. The Word of God has been spread by word of mouth, then by hand printed word, then the printed Bible. We have been blessed by the invention of newspaper and magazine presses in later history of our world. Radio, Television, Sattelite inventions in very recent years have now all but given way to Internet capabilities with cellphones, computers, etc. Also recently brought to my attention is the "circuit riders" who spread the gospel through America in her early days as well.
Our entire world seems to have been put on hold with the latest worldwide pandemic threatening to destroy all means of communication and shutting down many jobs as well as shutting down the ability of houses of God to worship together.
This appears to be a time of realignment for the Body of Christ. A time to re-think our manner and motives for fellowship and our love for God. Just as the Poney Express had only a short time (18 months) to step in for the time of transition in America, It may be that the bride of Christ has only a very tinly window of time for this time of transition before the 2nd coming of Christ. The Express happened to be run during the perilous time of the Gold Rush, The Indian wars, the Civil War, etc. in a time of great evil, greed and peril.
The heart of man has grown even colder and more deceitful, even as prophesied. The signs of the end are everywhere! Now we have more ability to spread the word than ever before. With Facebook, Instagram and many applications for even the least able communicator we have personal ability to communicate globally if we desire.
Here is a quote a portion of an ad for recruitment of Riders for the Poney Express: WANTED: Young, skinny, wiry fellows not over eighteen," noting that applicants "Must be expert riders, willing to risk death daily. Orphans preferred. He said His disciples must hate mother and father and his own life to be His disciple. Pick up your cross and follow me.
It seems that we are scrambling to develop strategies for this "new normal". This new way of meeting virtually, or socially distancing, etc. is more challenging as it is still developing. The world is seeking Peace amongst the nations, seeking peace of mind, seeking a cure for the pandemic, seeking cures, seeking financial stability, etc. The saints of God and His bride are seeking salvation of the lost. The Lord seeks for those who will worship Him in spirit and in truth. He is seeking intercessors to stand in the gap.
When we think we've got the hang of the "new normal', just like there was no further need for the Poney Express, there will be no more need for these new ways of communicating the gospel. Well, just think, during the tribulation, angels will be warning the world!
In an ad used to recruit Poney Express Riders, Can you see the notice the similarity between requirements for riders and the requirement for Jesus' disciples: "WANTED: Young, skinny, wiry fellows not over eighteen," noting that applicants "Must be expert riders, willing to risk death daily. Orphans preferred."
This advertisement reminds me of Jesus' warning/requirement to those who want to follow Him: Whosoever will follow me must take up your cross and follow me. Luke 14:26, 26: “If anyone comes to Me, and does not hate his own father and mother and wife and children and brothers and sisters, yes, and even his own life, he cannot be My disciple.”
The hardships involved and the readiness of the young riders also reminds me of Jesus' call to his disciples, Take Up Your Cross
(Matthew 10:37-39; Mark 8:34-38; Luke 9:23-27)
24Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. 25For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it. 26For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul? 27For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels; and then he shall reward every man according to his works.
28Verily I say unto you, There be some standing here, which shall not taste of death, till they see the Son of man coming in his kingdom.
Here is the world's congratulatory word after the closing of the Poney Express: "Good work against heavy odds". Does this remind you of the welcome that servants of Jesus
Christ will receive at the end of their race? "Well done thou good and faithful servant".
THE RIDERS/PONY EXPRESS
I had been thinking about the connection between the southeast vision and wondering if there
was something coming re: the southwest what is God saying to me now about my responsibility
I dreamt I saw two riders on 2 horses running very swiftly. they seemed to be working or
racing together. Then I realized that one of the riders was me!
. I had the distinct feeling of togetherness, as when working or playing together. The terrain
was flat and dry, though there were trees along the way. As we rounded a curve, I fell off my
horse and rolled a little to the right. I think the other rider fell, as well. I remembered
wondering if the horses legs had gotten tangled or something. Didn't know why we fell.
As I was getting up I noticed the red tip of bandanna that was tied around my neck. This
reminded me of a western movie. Apparently there was something small on the ground and
immediately I felt compelled to grab it.
We seemed to be near the edge of a hill or cliff and I hesitated, not wanting this to escalate into
a struggle/competition for the object.
Before getting back on my horse I looked at the other rider and said, "I guess I'd better go on
and get that." End of the dream!
Upon awakening from the dream, and before our morning prayer I thought the dream meant
not to let go of anything God gives me to do, and to do it quickly.
Further thoughts on that dream: Minutes later as I pondered the meaning of the red bandanna
and the wild west landscape, I heard "Pony Express" and decided to research Pony Express.
There happens to be so many parallels between the story of the Pony Express and our ministry
**Look up pony express , see the next writing for some interpretation
The relevance of this one is unfolding. For now, I post it as is, so as not to delay the message or
It is time to take the message of salvation to the lost! I found that the Emancipation
Proclamation was delivered by the Pony Express! The message of ultimate freedom from sin is
what we carry! I will pick up with this in the next writing. There are many parallels! Very
exciting! Stay tuned!
THE TOOL: FOR WARFARE OR PLANTING?
Plant your garden, plant the heavens with decrees, crush the head of the serpent
In this 2 second dream, as He was passing by me, God quickly placed a tool in my palm and
said it’s time now!
As I awoke from the dream I thought I had been given an axe. In retrospect, the image was that
of a Looked like a wide headed spade. (Not a weapon?) planting tool! Although it is indeed time
for my garden to be replanted, the Lord has been talking to my spirit about snakes and warfare
these recent days. ! I asked someone what is used to crush a snake. I was told that people use
small shovels to cut the heads off! Maybe that was the purpose of the tool handed to me in the
Even in my asking God for His interpretation of the dream, I was reminded of the pruning hooks
and plowshares in the bible. these are "prophetic" passages that deal with times of warfare and
times of peace. Beat your plowshares into swords, and your pruning hooks
into spears; let the weak say, “I am a warrior.” Psalm 46:9 ESV Joel 3:10
In the end, when Jesus himself judges the nations we will follow Micah4:3
and Isaiah 2:4 and Joel 3:12 and beat our swords into plowshares and
pruning hooks. Until then, it is time to fight in spiritual and maybe even
As I pondered the Tool vision, I was reminded of the open vision I had experienced in church a
few years ago. I had knelt in worship during our corporate worship time. As I looked up, I
envisioned the Lord Jesus standing above me. Looking down lovingly, he said, "I would knight
I began to research what it takes to become a knight. (That is an interesting topic for another
time.) Since then, the warfare has intensified and I have seemed to have experienced a few
knockout blows and seasons of bewilderment. During this season of worldwide trials and
repentance, I have experienced a renewal of heart and passion.
As I found myself thinking about snakes, I remembered another dream from many years ago. In
this dream, I was in my back yard with a few people. As we were standing under a tree, we
noticed a large snake laying there. The people told me not to be concerned about it and that it
would leave soon. As I turned to leave the area the snake rose up on its tail and began to chase
after me. I ran to the house and closed the door behind me with the snake right on my heels. I
knew then, don't underestimate a snake!
Don't turn your back, don't ignore it, don't run away from it, crush it's head.
Now is the time for warfare and now is the time for praises to rise up!
I perceived the dream to say that it is time to stand against the plots of satan with our weapons
of warfare: prayer, the whole armor of God, decrees, obedience.
Speak the word against fear and destruction, the enemies of God! Time to write what you hear
from God daily
I was reminded of the open vision I had experienced at our church during one new year's eve
I was standing in with a large crowd of people. I think there was a strong wind approaching us
from behind. As I looks up and forward I saw a a robed man standing at the opening of seemed
to be a cave or a storm shelter. He was beckoning the crowd to come to him. He was shouting
"GET IN!, GET IN!, GET IN!" as he frantically waved his hands!
Even now, Holy Spirit is almost jumping up and down, saying to saints and sinners alike, "GET
IN!, GET IN!, GET IN! Find shelter in Jesus!"
So as we see the signs beginning to happen with greater intensity and frequency, we don't look
around for answers, we don't faint, we don't panic. We don't begin to bicker amongst
ourselves, we don't criticize and judge, biting and devouring one another. We run to the
Father! We run and find shelter in HIm! In the shelter we fast and pray, we read His word and
LOVE one another. The Lord gives direction as we shelter in Him. In the Secret place!
The Appeal to Heaven
Previous writing from 2015...
Errors of the colonists opened the door for spiritual bondage
to celebration of evil practices? (Christmas, Halloween, Easter, Slavery)
While we were spared from British tyranny through the early american colonials "Appeal to
Heaven" we refused to see the evil in the practice of enslaving and/or, dehumanizing other
races of people. I feel that the embracing of the evergreen tree for Christmas and for the
"appeal to heaven" flag (number one symbol of the Baal worshippers and the god Odin who
became known and worshipped as Santa Clause), may have sealed the mindset of Christians in
this nation. Could it be that this is why Britain was able to break away from slave trade while
America was not. The flag was designed by the secretary to general George Washington (an
Illuminati Mason.) The tree was used by colonists for building the masts for the merchant ships.
We know now the main Commodity had become innocent African and Indian slaves. Indian as
well as African, etc.
Even now, well meaning, God-loving American Christians
struggle to cast down the spirit of racism in their own souls.
(Waving that flag and evergreen fir tree symbol to god in appeal for his help could be likened to
waving the swastika or another sign of demonic worship before the lord (out of ignorance ) or
like offering swine's blood for a sacrifice to God.)
Symbols are powerful and sometimes detrimental to the work of God.
We were delivered from the tyranny of Britain. There WAS SOME progress made in the anti-
slavery movement, due to the sincere fervent prayers of righteous men and women of God, but
even now our nation struggles with the issue of racism more than any other nation. It is a
struggle even for christian pastors and ministers of the Bible.
American history is steeped in Babylonian practices.
Our holiday traditions, monuments, icons and people we hold in high esteem are not what we
have been made to believe.
In recent years of discovering many of these discrepancies and injustices, I have come to the
realization that there is none righteous! No one is exempt! All need salvation and the leading of
Our commission is to humble ourselves, pray and seek gods face and to repent of all evil in our
Continue to invite kingdom of God to be manifest in our land and in all the earth. Contend for
revival of hearts and souls and proclaim a great harvest for the glory of God.
God is moving in awesome holiness and power even now. Grace and peace to you,
Why He Said South!
Thinking of the dream though trying to let it go! God had said this is why I said SOUTH’. It has to be. The cries of the land because of utter disregard for human life here over the history!
The next day, I began to hear if unveiled hidden history of racial injustice and Oprah’s book caste and then the other book _______.
Tonight I thought to once again receive instruction to contact pastors re: praying together standing up for repentance, reflection, inventory of our ways failing re: abortion, apathy, etc. Even racial division and atrocities in the southern churches!
As I drifted back to sleep, Had a quick dream/scene. Was thinking bout the south and wondering what about the south west. Heard Coverton or Murillo say something about the west last night.
The dream was 2 horseback riders riding side by side - racing round a curve. One wore a red bandanna round his neck the other had one, too. Blue? Somehow they got tangled up and each fell to the ground. (I was one of them).
We sort of rolled to the side, almost to the edge of a hill. There was something we had to pick up on the ground. Took me a second to decide I should pick it up.
Get feedback on this one.
Is it telling me I need to carry a message of warning or call to action, call to prayer. Like the express mail? Another call to repentance, especially southern white evangelicals?
I remember now - as I was waking from this one I was talking to a man about it and he said, “was it a clarion call”?
