Poney Express insights-"Good work against heavy odds" - Accelerate
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".
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!
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!
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,
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”?

I am reminded that there was a series of prophetic dreams occurring during a short time
period of my life. They seem to point to the last days in which we find ourselves living. I
think of them often, not realizing that they were connected until now. These speak of
religious and racial persecution, rapture, and pandemic. I will start with the pandemic
dream, as it is the most crucial at this moment.
To spare you, I choose not to repeat the details here. (You can read about the dream on
our website in a previous TLCW vlog. The dream seemed to foretell a severe outbreak of
covid19 in the southern states of America that would be akin to a rapidly moving
firestorm. Contrary wise, Covid19 struck the northern states more severely in the first
stages of this pandemic.
In my mind, I could imagine seeing a path being drawn on a map. When I awoke a few
mornings ago , I thought to hear him say "Redirected, but coming back with a
vengeance!" May your sons and daughters be ready for whatever comes. May we be the
light in the darkness here as we await your return. Use us to show your power to heal, to
comfort, to provide, to deliver.
This pandemic, whether planned by man or not, is being used by God to shake the church
and to shake the nations. The heart of man is on trial and in preparation for the coming
of our Lord even as we see the natural calamities happening quickly. Now we know these
to be birth pains and the beginning of sorrows as we see persecution on the rise. (Matt.
But in the middle of all this, revival comes.
Speaking of revival, just days ago, HolySpirit instructed and enabled me to find a copy of
the Revival brochure He had enabled me to make and distribute years ago. He reminded
me of the prayers of the saints over the years for worldwide revival. (I plan to post it on
another blog) As I thought about the brochure,and as I thought about Revival, it
suddenly all made sense! "This is what it takes to answer that cry!" We Cry for Revival!
We Decree Revival!
Is this what it takes for those revival prayers to be answered? God have your way!
Because we live in “the last days”, and other dreams from the Lord over the years, it is
evident that there will be a mixture of events along with this rerouting of the devastation
as we prepare hearts to be ready for our Lord.
HolySpirit also reminded me of other dreams that had come to me around the same time
period. These were dreams of rapture and persecution. In one to which I often refer, the
news media reports lots of people missing. They conclude that they are being abducted
by aliens. (mind you, Forty years ago there was little talk of aliens. Most said they were
I am also reminded of the many dreams of persecution in past years. Some of these are
from my early childhood. We have much information concerning the rising worldwide
Pray in the Spirit and, repent and be refilled constantly.
Prayer has gone forth for repentance and for helping those affected by covid and
political, economic, and racial atrocities, etc. as the nation mourns and reels from chaos.
There has been talk of change with little mention of God unless derogatorily.
It's time to pray like never before for the lost to be saved. Time to speak up and declare:
Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.
Preparation to stand under persecution, to make disciples, to war against evil
principalities and prayer for those who are now under severe persecution is necessary.
Can we agree with this prayer from the highly persecuted Chinese leader of "Early Rain"
Church (called the “church not afraid”)? "Through this storm, may your people be a
faithful witness and testimony to the transformational power of the gospel for the sake of
your kingdom." ( Voice of the Martyr 3/20, Pg . 11, )
So it is that as Jesus has already told us. Matt. 25. When you see all these things begin to
come to pass. Look up and rejoice, your redemption draweth nigh. It's time for the church
to rise up in Holy Ghost power!
Holy Spirit has finally awakened me to the urgency of the time! It’s time to awake out of
sleep, knowing that the days are short and our salvation is nearer than when we believed.
We will not fear, but we with joy occupy until He comes! Speak the word, live a life of love,
evangelize the lost. Heal the sick, cast out devils, Pray without ceasing! Preach the Word!
As He was in the world, and as He proclaimed, let our cry be “Repent, the Kingdom of
Heaven is at hand!
(1 Tim 2:1-4,8) I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for
all people- 2 for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness
and holiness. 3 This is good, and pleases God our Savior, 4 who wants all people to be saved and to come
to a knowledge of the truth. 8 Therefore I want the men everywhere to pray, lifting up holy hands
without anger or disputing.
(Ezek 22:30) I looked for someone among them who would build up the wall and stand
before me in the gap on behalf of the land so I would not have to destroy it, but I found no one. (Isa
59:16) 16 And he saw that there was no man, and wondered that there was no intercessor: therefore his
arm brought salvation unto him; and his righteousness, it sustained him. (Isa 62:7)7 and give him no
rest till he establishes Jerusalem and makes her the praise of the earth.
(1John 2:5) But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we
that we are in him.
(Psalm 119:165) Great peace have those who love your law, and nothing can make them stumble.
(Ezek 14:6-8,22) Therefore say unto the house of
Israel, Thus saith the Lord God; Repent, and turn yourselves from your idols; and turn away your faces
from all your abominations. 7 For every one of the house of Israel, or of the stranger that sojourneth in
Israel, which separateth himself from me, and setteth up his idols in his heart, and putteth the
stumblingblock ... 22 Yet, behold, therein shall be left a remnant that shall be brought forth, both sons
and daughters: behold, they shall come forth unto you, and ye shall see their way and their doings: and
ye shall be comforted concerning the evil that I have brought upon Jerusalem, even concerning all that I have done in it, saith the Lord God.
(Matt 28:19) 19 Therefore go and make disciples of
all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,
(Rev2:4,5) 4Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love.
5Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will
come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent.
*Have deep spiritual hunger
(1Peter 2:2) 2As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby:
