GOD SPEAKS THROUGH DREAMS & VISIONS

“The wise men, the astrologers, the magicians, and the soothsayers cannot declare…

But there is a God in Heaven who reveals secrets…”

Daniel 2:27-28

Dreams, visions, open visions… Through these supernatural, illustrative forms of communication, God speaks to His people to relay His messages and instructions.

If you are walking with God (Jesus Christ) you should take dreams and visions very seriously, for they come from God. “God came to Abimelech in a dream by night, and said to him, “Indeed you are a dead man because of the woman whom you have taken, for she is a man’s wife.” Genesis 20:3 (reference the story of Abraham and S.arah)

If you are not walking with God, dreams can also come from the devil – such as in nightmares. “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.” 2 Timothy 1:7 (reference Nebuchadnezzar’s dream in Daniel 2:1-13).

Journal the dreams and visions God gives you, pray about them, search the Bible concerning them. God will reveal the meaning to these riddles. Sometimes, God will give you an immediate interpretation to your dream, but most often He wants you to seek Him for its meaning. “It is the glory of God to conceal a thing: but the honour of kings is to search out a matter.” Proverbs 25:2

As we explore this topic of dreams and visions, it is very important that you understand that God, alone, is sovereign. What He chooses to reveal is not for the glory of man but is for the sole purpose of bringing about His divine plan. “In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falls upon men, while slumbering on their beds, then He (the Lord) opens the ears of men, and seals their instruction.”  Job 33:15-16

I have received dreams and visions from the Lord since I was a child. However, I didn’t understand that God was speaking to me. Therefore, I didn’t begin journaling my dreams and experiences until I was well into my adult years. As I have studied my dreams and visions, I have noticed common threads that run through them. They tend to fall into categories of dreams. Below, I have listed the categories that I have experienced personally however, this is not to exclude others. You will find that God will not be placed in a box. For His ways of communication and expression are limitless…

LIFE DREAMS & VISIONS 

God revealed my call to the office of a prophet in a dream…

The night I prayed and asked God to confirm my call, He gave me a dream and showed me four large and beautifully ornate letters that spelled out the following: SEER.

Life Dreams & Visions reveal God’s plans and purpose for your life. Through these dreams, God will speak to you and give you specific directions and guidance along the way. He may show you people you are destined to meet and places you are destined to go.

CONFIRMING DREAMS & VISIONS 

God revealed to me in a dream that He was pleased with me…

During a time when I needed reassurance from God, I prayed and asked God if He was pleased with me. I was pleasantly surprised when He gave me a dream where I saw myself sitting in a beautiful, lush green pasture on a bright and sunny day. I looked at peace, was smiling and holding a large, shiny red apple in my lap. When I awoke, the Lord gave me an immediate interpretation and revealed to me that He was pleased with me and He said I had good fruit…

Confirming Dreams & Visions are given to us to reveal where we are within the will of God. He will inform you if you have strayed from the path He wants you on – and how to get back on track. He will also let you know if He is pleased with you and your progress. God is not bothered by our desire to know where we stand with Him. Ask Him and He will let you know.

EMPOWERING DREAMS & VISIONS

God revealed to me in a dream that I was to confront a pastor about his sin… God showed me that He was not pleased with a pastor whose church I was attending. The Lord revealed to me that the pastor had a controlling spirit. Then He showed me at least one person in the church who was guilty of an idolatrous sin I heard God refer to as “pastor worship”. This was a small church that was not growing. The Lord then told me to confront this pastor about his sin and the sin of the congregation. I was to inform him that God was not pleased and to warn him that God would not bless the church unless he repented, turned away from his sin and corrected the sin of the congregation.

Empowering Dreams & Visions give us what we need to carry out a directive from the Lord. Sometimes God gives us a word to say or a job to do that can be very difficult to carry out in our own strength. However, when we hear God Himself direct us, we find strength and courage, through His word, to do the hard thing.

REASSURING DREAMS & VISIONS

God has revealed to me through many dreams that I will see my “prodigal” again… There is a loved one in my life whom I have not seen in years. However, God, who is a caring, compassionate and merciful God, remembers me and the heartache I feel. I don’t always understand the answers to the ‘why’s’ of life, yet I know there is One who does. I place all my trust in Him. It is He who gives me peace to be still and wait.

Reassuring Dreams & Visions remind us that God is a loving God who cares about what we care about. It is reassuring to know that He uses everything that happens to us (those who love Him and are called according to His purpose) for our good. It is comforting to know that God has everything – and every one – under His control.

CORRECTION DREAMS & VISIONS

God revealed to me – through a divine visitation – that I had a stronghold that was stunting my spiritual growth… About a year or so ago, I received a divine visitation from a Heavenly body that engulfed my bedroom with the sound of a powerful whirlwind and a bright, blinding light… “And suddenly there came a sound from Heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting.” Acts 2:2 

Correction Dreams & Visions are revealed for our good. God is our loving Father. And like all loving fathers, sometimes it is necessary for Him to correct His children. It is then that the Holy Spirit comes to us to teach, perfect and redirect us to a place of better understanding of God’s word so that we can correct our behavior to remain in right standing with God. His correction restores to a place of blessing.

WARNING DREAMS & VISIONS

God revealed to me through a series of dreams that my parents would die… A few years back, I lost both of my parents within ten months of each other. A few years prior to that, I received a series of repetitive dreams about my parents that concerned me. The content of the dreams were different, however each dream always ended the same – not good. I am happy to say that through prayer God brought about life-changing miracles that led both of my parents into the arms of Jesus before they died. Thankfully, I will see them again in Heaven.

Warning Dreams & Visions demonstrate God’s grace and mercy and through it all, His grace and mercy abounds… God promises to always be with us and to never leave us. As He watches over His children, He is directing them, providing for them and protecting them. Many times His protection will come through warnings that alert us to dangerous situations at hand, dangerous situations that are coming, people who mean you harm, circumstances that involve family members, and so on. If the warnings are for you, take heed. If the dreams are concerning others, stand in the gap on their behalf and pray for God’s covering.

GUIDANCE DREAMS & VISIONS

God revealed to me in a dream how to respond to a new opportunity that was soon to come my way… I had a dream that I walked into a new place barefooted but then pulled my favorite shoes out of my purse and put them on my feet. I was then escorted into a room and seated on an upper level in a place that represented great opportunity. Not long afterwards, I was offered a new job that included a new promotion. The Lord showed me in that dream that I would walk into that new place unprepared for what was to come but I was not to worry for I would be well equipped. He showed me that He has been preparing me all along “for a time such as this.”

Guidance Dreams & Visions lead you in the right direction. While making decisions based on your own selfish desires is guaranteed to lead you into a place you really don’t want to be. Consulting God, waiting for His response and then obeying Him as He guides you is the only way to guarantee you are receiving God’s best for you.

CLEANSING DREAMS & VISIONS

God revealed to me in a dream that He was not pleased with my communication… I had a dream that I had planned to meet a group of people at a restaurant. I arrived early and was eager to meet everyone however, once everyone else arrived, I was more concerned with going to the bathroom to brush my teeth than I was eating with them. The Lord was showing me that I should be more aware of the words I choose when communicating to people. I heard the Lord say, “Bridle your tongue.”

Cleansing Dreams & Visions wash us clean with the blood of Jesus. It is impossible to walk through an unclean place and come out unsoiled. In the natural, when we become dirty, we know where to go and what to do to become clean again. In dreams, the images of these places is often what we see when we have become spiritually unclean. Dreams that show you in the bathroom showering or on the toilet are revealed to help us address purification. The Lord is showing you things in your life that need to be cleansed or flushed away.

SPIRITUAL WARFARE DREAMS & VISIONS

God revealed to me through a dream that a close family member had given themselves over to demon possession… This experience was a demonstration of true spiritual warfare up front and personal. God unveiled a situation that gave me the opportunity to see true demon possession and realize, first hand, hidden evil in this world. Several years, prior to this situation coming to light, God was teaching and preparing me what was to come.

Spiritual Warfare Dreams & Visions reveal a fact of life, especially for a follower of Jesus. It is very important for us to understand the principles behind who, what, how, when and where when it comes to spiritual warfare. True Christians are prime targets of demonic attacks. The Lord reveals what goes on in the spiritual realm through dreams and visions to uncover what is hidden, to prepare for what is to come and to teach us how to fight victoriously.

CREATIVE DREAMS & VISIONS

Through a dream, God revealed a creative idea… Years ago, God gave me poems and psalms then He gave me a dream that revealed the idea for a series of poetic work entitled AUTHOR OF LIFE POETIC INSPIRATIONS: A DIVINELY INSPIRED POEM & PSALM COLLECTION.

Creative Dreams & Visions are natural expressions from God for He is the Author life. He is also the Author of all forms of art and creativity. When we look around us and see beauty found in every color and form, it is impossible to ignore this fact. God often imparts amazing creativity by giving us dreams that inspire noteworthy ideas, poetry, song and art.

IMPARTATION DREAMS & VISIONS 

Through a dream, an angel impartation took place… Recently, after praying for the peace and strength to walk through a very stressful situation that I am currently going through, an angel appeared in a dream and began to massage my feet and ankles. In the dream, I questioned him but he did not answer me. Instead, he continued to massage my feet and ankles. In the areas where he touched me, I felt a strong tingling sensation and then I awoke.

Impartation Dreams & Visions are gifts given from the Holy Spirit that impart a particular spiritual gift or empowerment. I believe the Lord answered my prayer and imparted to me, through the angel, exactly what I need to endure this time in my life.

PREDICTION DREAMS & VISIONS

God revealed to me in an open vision that His judgment will be poured out on the land with earthquakes that are coming… While watching television years ago, another image was superimposed over what I was watching and I saw a woman broadcast a report of earthquakes that would destroy major cities across the United States which she pointed out. A day or so later, I felt the ground shake under my feet twice while I ate in a restaurant.

Prediction Dreams & Visions are revealed to prophets for God says “Surely the Lord God does nothing,
unless He reveals His secret to His servants the prophets.” Amos 3:7

WHAT IS THE BIBLICAL DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A DREAM AND A VISION?

A vision is when God gives you a Heavenly perspective through your literal eyes or in your mind’s eye – while you are awake. A dream is a mental image revealed by God while you are asleep.

A vision may be a one-dimensional image, like a photograph or a three-dimensional image. The image may be superimposed over what you are looking at, like a double-exposure photograph. The image may also be like a movie that is playing before your eyes. These images may be silent or have sound.

WHAT ARE OPEN VISIONS?

An open vision is a dramatically interactive divine revelation shown to you by God. In an open vision, your eyes are open and you are not interrupted by distractions around you. They often appear like a movie acting out in front of you. In an open vision, you become a part of the experience and are given the ability to interact with what is taking place around you. In these types of visions you not only hear and see, you may also be able to taste, feel or smell.

Be careful to guard against arrogant pride.

For the Lord has exalted many a man

And He’s humbled the same. See, it is all in His hand.

 

The path that you follow is not meant for all

As many are chosen but few have been called.

The enemy’s watching. He comes in disguise

With those who are waiting for your compromise.

 

An assignment’s been given and it fits only you.

His reflection upon you looks great from this view!

He’s standing beside you and cheering you on.

No greater reward has been placed there upon.

 

Walk straight down that path custom made for your feet

As the runways of life lead to many you’ll meet.

Keep love in your heart as they share different views.

Keep a smile on your face as you spread the good news!

 

You, who aspiring young ladies look to,

We’ll see who you are as we watch what they do.

You’ll be held to account for the actions you take.

Don’t cause them to stumble through decisions they make.

 

Highlight your secrets to life every day.

Teach them to love Him as you kneel to pray.

Tell them to ask God for boldness in word.

Then go share your witness so He will be heard.

 

Instead of the fashions and feign the world dons,

Reach for God’s Armor, be it first to put on.

As you model a temple that the Lord dwells within,

You’re modeling an image well covered from sin.

 

With grace and with poise, take His Shield in your hand.

Then position a faith that allows you to stand.

Let the Hat Of Salvation envelop your mind,

With the Sword Of The Spirit, it is sin you will bind.

 

Model that snug Belt of Truth ’round your waste

With the Breastplate of Righteousness there in its place.

Step high in those heels for the gospel of peace.

Pray to Him always. No, don’t ever cease.

 

As you pray for Believers, you pray for the saints.

In all, be forgiving. In all, no complaints.

Then your heart will be covered from Satan’s attacks,

From his lies and his devils for God’s got your back!

 

You, birthed in Zion, go conquer the world!

You’re a virtuous woman; you’re God’s ‘covered’ girl!

A High Fashioned Model for Christ you shall be.

So fashion an image – one worthy to see.

 

The world’s waiting for you – be bold, stand your ground.

Keep your eyes fixed on Jesus and never look down.

Take your place on life’s stage for His light on you shows.

Sachet into action – go ahead, strike a pose!

 

Then make way for Jesus, for He’s coming through

With designs to transform you and make you brand new.

Look up all you Fendis and Versaces, too.

You Guccis and Laurens, He’s high over you.

 

For He is the One who we call on to save

From our sin, from ourselves, and yes, even the grave.

There is none, great or small, who can dare make this claim.

So we humbly and reverently call on His name.

 

Take a bow, my Lord Jesus, for the honor is Yours.

We’re all here to praise You for God raised You. Encore!

May His Veil Be Upon You,

May His Grace Shine Down On You.

PROPHETS VS SEER PROPHETS: LET THE TRUTH BE KNOWN

“Hear My words: If there is a prophet among you, I the LORD make Myself known to him in a vision; I speak with him in a dream.” Numbers 12:6

There is much confusion and many misconceptions concerning the topic of the prophetic. There is even more so concerning the differences that exist within the office of the prophet. For within the two channels that flow from this unique and powerful office flow the prophet and the seer prophet. To clarify, let it be known that they are one and the same – as far as the office is concerned. However, they are different – as far as the way they receive their revelation from God.

I’d like to take this opportunity to shed some light specifically on the seer prophet, for this is where I live. In this, I want to express two points. One, that Believers should be familiar, should understand and be very comfortable with the subject of the spiritual realm. This is absolutely necessary for there is no other way we can fully operate within the power and the authority that is given to us by Jesus Christ. And two, God is not restricted in the many ways He communicates with His children for His voice has been, is and always will be mighty, diverse and limitless…

First, allow me to say that all true Believers should be operating in the prophetic. To prophesy simply means to ‘speak forth’ or to ‘declare God’s divine will’ for His purpose. It means to make known God’s truth for the influencing of His people. As I said earlier, all Believers should be prophesying. However, there is a different kind of prophesying delivered as the result of direct revelation imparted by God to His prophets. This will be my focus here.

TWO DIFFERENT TYPES OF PROPHETS

Seer prophet, prophetic father of the faith and author, James Goll, very astutely describes the two types of prophets as follows: “The prophetic movements in Church history and contemporary life are fed by two mighty streams: the prophet whose revelation are primarily verbal and the seer prophet whose revelation is more visual in nature. All true seers are prophets but not all prophets are seers.” This is a quote taken from his book, The Seer: The Prophetic Power Of Visions, Dreams And Open Heavens.

In the Old Testament, we find three Hebrew words that describe the three distinct descriptions of a prophet. There is one word which is nabih meaning “to bubble forth as from a fountain”  and “to utter”  that describes the non-seeing prophet. Then there are two words that describe the seer prophet. Those words are ra’ah and chozeh. Ra’ah means “to seer” to “gaze”, to “look upon” and to “perceive.” While chozeh means “a beholder in vision”, “gazer” and “stargazer.” As I stated previously, prophets primarily receive their revelation from God by means of ‘hearing’, while seer prophets primarily ‘see’ their revelation. However, there are some seer prophets, such as myself, who receive their revelation from both methods – we ‘see’ and ‘hear’ the word of God.

Seer prophets receive their revelation by means of dreams, visions and a plethora of other divine experiences that come directly from God. This includes insight into the spiritual realm. This insight is called discerning of spirits. Most seer prophets have been given – by God – the gift of discerning of spirits. This is not to be confused with the demonic power that is seen in the world and is rooted in Satan. This power, though it is real, is limited. Many have been deceived by this so-called magic as its source comes from demonic influence and possession. It enables counterfeits (who may also call themselves seers) such as psychics, fortune tellers and the like to access knowledge as well as the spiritual realm. Let me make myself very clear. The true ability to see into the supernatural spiritual realm comes directly from God alone. Anything else is a false satanic copy.

As I continue, please understand that the information I am sharing with you is based on my own personal experiences, alone. Other seers may have different experiences for our gift is as different as we are unique. As for myself, I hear the voice of God audibly both inwardly and outwardly. I also hear God speak to me through many other ways as well. I am currently doing an 8-part series on YouTube entitled The Voice Of God. Check it out. You may also find the information shared helpful as well.

I receive revelatory dreams pretty much on a daily basis. The information revealed to me, by God, is information concerning myself, my family, friends, political figures as well as events that are yet to come. These dreams reveal messages of edification, warnings, inspiration, confirmation, direction, rebuke and everything in between. I also receive visions and other spiritual manifestations of all kinds. These encounters include seeing and hearing words, feeling spiritual manifestations physically as well as experiencing the angelic and the demonic.

Revelations from God are not given for entertainment purposes. It is given for the sole purpose of bringing to past the will of God who is Jesus Christ and the revealing of His glory. In this, it is used to edify, inspire, rebuke and deliver God’s Believers from demonic oppression. There is so much more I can say about this subject however, it will suffice to say it is the responsibility of a seer prophet to un-mystify the mysteries that exists within the spiritual realm. God is Spirit. Where He resides is within the spiritual realm. As Believers, we should flow in this information like the back of our hands for this is where we live. The spiritual realm is real. In fact, it is more real than the earthly facade we live in. I’ll say more about this later. It is also important to say that none of the experiences I have described am I ever able to tap into on my own. What is revealed to me is revealed to me by God, alone, and only when He deems necessary.

THE PHYSICAL REALM VS THE SPIRITUAL REALM

In the physical world that we live in, we have five senses that help us relate tangibly to the physical world that we live in. Through these five senses, we are able to experience how something feels, looks, sounds, smells and tastes. It is through these physical experiences that we are able to perceive what is real to us (in a natural sense). Likewise, as it is within the natural, what exists in the spiritual realm can also be felt, seen, heard, smelled and tasted. A seer prophet is given the ability to experience these things uniquely and first hand. Between the physical realm and the spiritual realm, it is in the spiritual realm that the reality of life is truly reflected. Very similar to the movie, The Matrix, we should understand that what we experience in the physical is a façade compared to what is actually happening in the spiritual. Just because you can’t see it, does not mean it does not exist. The spiritual realm is alive, active and is taking place all around us. Daily spiritual warfare should be evidence of this.

CAN THE SEER ANOINTING BE TRANSFERRED?

Many people want to know if it is possible to receive the seer anointing through impartation from another. Let me say this: God can give whatever He wants to whoever He wants. I do know 1 Corinthians 12:31 tells us that we are to eagerly desire the greater gifts. However, as for myself, I can only say I was born with this anointing. I have memories of receiving revelation in my dreams even as a small child.

A RESURGENCE OF REVELATORY GIFTS

Today, the Church is seeing a worldwide resurgence of revelatory gifts that are giving us deeper insight into God, into ourselves and into the spiritual realm. As the Body of Christ, we need this revelation to advance the work of Jesus.

Not only are prophets of both kinds alive and well today, with the influx of evil on the rise in the Church and in the world around us, we are needed more now than ever before. Jesus gave the prophets, as He has given all who make up the five-fold ministry. Ephesians 4:12-13 tells us we are all needed for the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ.

If you still have questions concerning the prophetic, the prophets or seer prophets specifically, please do not hesitate to reach out to me. I do not claim to know everything there is to know about these subjects for God is still unveiling new revelation concerning this anointing to me – even as we speak. But I will share what I have experienced for there is power in truth for the Believer, and weakness in ignorance.

Brace yourself Beloved, for there is so much more on the subject of the supernatural yet to come…

THE AUDIBLE VOICE OF GOD: GOD STILL SPEAKS

Thirty years ago, when I entered into a relationship with Jesus Christ, I had no previous experiences that defined for me, or prepared me, for what it meant to be a Christian. I did not grow up in a Bible-reading, Bible-teaching family attending church every Sunday. I was not familiar with the terminology, I had no knowledge of the deception that I came to discover was rampant in the Church today and neither had I been predisposed to religious traditions that have caused people to stray far from the model the early apostles modeled for us in the early New Testament Church.

I came to God as a blank slate, somewhat ignorant but nevertheless ready and eager to explore His word for what it was. So, when I received my very first Bible, at the tender age of twenty-seven, I embraced God’s word with much anticipation believing it was going to change my life. As I read it and heard it, I accepted God’s word literally and whole-heartedly, and as the result something amazing happened…

As I began reading my Bible as a new Believer I marveled (as I still do) at the relationships that were formed between God and His children. As I observed the communications that took place between God and people like Abraham and Moses, I could find no reason to believe that God could not or would not communicate with me as well. So, I believed that He could and I expected that He would, and began pursuing a deeper, more intimate relationship with the Lord. I was not content with simply reading my Bible and knowing about God. I wanted more. So, I began to seek the Lord so that I could truly come to know God. In those early years, I remember praying often that God would clearly speak to me. God answered my prayer. However, recognizing His voice did not happen for me overnight. It took years of walking with, talking with and experiencing God.

GOD SPEAKS AUDIBLY

In my previous post, Introducing Author Of Life Poetic Inspirations!, I share my amazing experience of the first time I heard the audible voice of God. I’d like to expound upon it here:

Let me start out by saying I am not one who has ever been able to stay up late. I define late as past the hour of 9:00pm (smile). Even as a small child I always rose early and retired early. According to my pediatrician, it was just the way God had wired my body. However, in September of 2001, on the eve of what would become one of the most devastating periods of my life, everything was different. In retrospect, I know now that the Lord was preparing me for a very painful situation that was coming. He was going to draw out of me emotions from that situation that He allowed to teach me lessons and to use for ministry.

Prior to that evening, I had begun to supernaturally receive messages that I was moved to write into psalms and poems. These writings were destined to not only minister to me during some of the most difficult periods of my life but, eventually, would come to minister to many others as well. I had recently been given my first Holy Spirit-inspired message. Eventually, more were to follow.

On this day, I spent the evening stretched out on the living room floor of my home praying, reflecting and writing. Although it had become quite late, surprisingly I was wide awake and had no intentions of going to bed until I finished what I was working on. I don’t remember what time it was, but I do know my family had gone to bed hours before and everyone was sound asleep. After I had finally finished, I prepared for bed then went into my bedroom. I remember it was quiet in the house and all the lights were out however, my bedroom was gently illuminated by the moonlight I could see coming in through my bedroom window.

As I climbed into bed and began to pull the covers up over me, I heard a male voice call out my first name out loud. Startled, I looked around the room but I saw no one. I was frightened so I sunk down into the bed and pulled the covers up over my head. Then, with my left foot, I nudged my husband who was laying beside me sound asleep and snoring. I tried again to wake him to see if he had also heard the voice but he didn’t budge. It was obvious that he had not. As I lay there all night afraid to remove the covers for fear of what I might see, I pondered what I had just heard. I don’t remember how long I lay there, but eventually I know I fell asleep.

The following morning, I was completely beside myself. I told my husband what had happened in hopes of getting some answers. Instead, he was speechless and equally surprised. I then contacted one of my co-pastors and met her later for lunch. She confirmed what I already knew in my spirit. I had, in fact, heard the audible voice of Jesus.

I could not understand why God would speak to me and yet only call out my name. This question plagued me. In an effort to understand, I grabbed my Bible and re-read the story of Samuel. Afterwards, I became completely distraught and disappointed with myself. God had called out my name the night before and I had not responded with a single word. Maybe this was the reason why He had not spoken anything else.

A week later, I received devastating news. It was the kind of news that had I not been grounded in the belief that God was real, it may have destroyed me. I struggled for quite a while trying to process everything. “How could God allow this to happen?” I thought. Much later, I was to receive many answers to that question. However, none of them brought me relief from my pain. Only the reality that God was real grounded me. I knew He was. Along with all the other times He had revealed Himself to me in miraculous ways, now I could tell myself in the most difficult situations that God would see me through it. I was reminded of this every time I drew strength from the fact that He had audibly called out my name.

Although I was surprised by my lack of a reaction when I heard the voice of God, none of it caught God by surprise. He knew exactly how I would respond. Nevertheless, He is using every bit of that experience for His glory.

GOD SPEAKS BY IMPARTATION

Recently, I released some of those psalms and poems that were given to me over the years by the Lord. They are included in the seventeen ‘Gift Books’ (as in gifts from God) that make up my poetic work entitled Author Of Life Poetic Inspirations: A Divinely Inspired Poem & Psalm Collection. The title I chose for this work is a lengthy one and there is a very good reason for that. ‘Divinely Inspired’ implies that there was an impartation that took place between the Holy Spirit and myself. Imparting (or downloading) information into our spirits is another way God speaks to His children. Have you ever received a complete idea or information about something you had never given any thought to before? If that idea or information was not contrary to the word of God, it was probably the Holy Spirit imparting, or downloading, that information into your spirit. Though this type of communication is actually quite common, unfortunately, people assume their information comes from elsewhere and the Holy Spirit does not receive proper credit for it. The reason for the long title of my poetic work: I wanted to be sure to give credit where credit is due.

I’d like to share a very personal story. This story is one I rarely speak about however, as I considered which example in my life would be appropriate to best demonstrate ‘impartation’, the Lord said to use this one.

In 2008, I began to receive very disturbing dreams concerning my mother who was alive and well at the time. The dreams were reoccurring. I say this because even though the scenes and circumstances were different, the subject and the ending were always the same. In every dream was my mother and at the end of every dream, I was shown that my mother was going to Hell.

Naturally, I was extremely alarmed about what was being shown to me so I would attempt to speak with my mother, as well as my father, about whether they had a relationship with the Lord. At the time, however, neither would speak to me about the subject. I did’t know what more to do other than pray, pray and pray some more.

Years later, my mother began to show signs of a debilitating illness.  I remember my father telling me that my mother told him before she lost her ability to speak that she felt as if she was slowly fading away. I traveled from Georgia to Texas to help care for her. I took her to several specialists hoping to discover what was wrong with her and trying to believe that there was  a cure out there somewhere. But her visits always ended the same. Her illness baffled even the experts. While some symptoms would point to one illness, other symptoms would at the same time rule it out. There was nothing they could do. This was the case throughout the entire course of her illness.

In horror, I watched as my mother very quickly declined from a strong-willed, intelligent and very capable woman and succumb to an infantile state of helplessness. My mother eventually lost her ability to talk, to eat or drink, to walk, stand and even sit. Interestingly enough though, her mind seemed to be intact. It was a strange illness. It was as if her mind was imprisoned inside a body that was shutting down around her. However, eventually, even her cognitive abilities were to go. My family and I knew that my mother was dying. In desperation, each and every one of us did everything that was humanly possible to try and save her but sadly we could do nothing more but keep her comfortable and stand by watching as the enemy slowly pulled her away from us.

While all this was happening, in the back of my mind I could not escape the dreams the Lord had given to me concerning my mother. “Isn’t there anything more I can do, Lord?” I would often ask God as I prayed for my mother. But the Lord was silent. So I just continued to pray.

Eventually, I saw my mother become bed-bound in a nursing home for we could no longer care for her properly at home. But only weeks before she could no longer sit alone, I began to receive news from the nurses that early on Sunday mornings, my mother had begun to wheel herself, alone in her wheelchair, to the other side of the building so that she could attend church services in the little chapel they had there. This shocked me. My mother never had a desire to attend church. In fact, she would become upset with me every time I tried to talk to her about God. Did she believe in God? Was she angry with God about something? These are questions she would never answer.

My mother had lost her ability to speak and write by this time, so I could get nothing out of her whenever I would ask her about her trips to the chapel. “Mommy, the nurses tell me you’ve been attending church services on Sunday mornings. Is this true?” In an attempt to engage my mother, she would only stare at me with an empty look on her face. Sometimes she would yawn as if she wanted to speak but couldn’t. A few weeks later, my mother’s body could no longer sit so she became bed-bound. Not long after this, I returned to Georgia. My mother was declining fast at this point and I knew that the end was near.

One morning, shortly after returning to Georgia, I awoke very early and felt that I needed some time with the Lord. So, I drew a bath and decided to relax to the sounds of the gospel being read to me by audio form. As I lay back in the tub with my eyes closed, the Lord spoke to my spirit. He instructed me to give a message to my mother and began to impart this information into my spirit. There was so much that I was afraid I would not remember it all, so I got out of the tub to get a piece of paper and a pen. I wrote down everything the Lord gave me for my mother.

The Lord instructed me to call my sister, who was in Texas, to go see my mother. It was around 4:00 am or so. God told me to tell my sister when she got to my mother’s room to put the phone on speaker and I was to give her the message. I called my sister and she did exactly what the Lord said. First, the Lord had me tell my mother that He loved her very much. He told me to tell my mother that He had forgiven her of everything. He said that even though there are secrets my mother held onto, He knows about them all and has forgiven her for them all. At this time, I heard my sister call out my name and say, “She’s crying. There are tears running out of her eyes.” I then spoke to my mother and told her I was going to ask her some questions and that I needed her to respond to me. I knew she couldn’t speak so I asked her if she could blink her eyes. I instructed my mother to blink twice for ‘yes’ and once for ‘no’.  My sister became excited and confirmed that my mother had blinked her eyes hard – twice! I then continued by asking my mother if she believed that Jesus Christ was the one and only virgin-born son of God. My mother blinked twice. I asked her if she believed He was crucified, buried, rose on the third day and had ascended into Heaven to rule along side of the Father. My mother blinked twice. On the inside, I was rejoicing! Then the Lord had me tell my mother that soon her time here would come to an end for He was going to bring her home to be with Him. He had me tell her that when that time came, He was going to call out her name and when she heard her name called, she was to answer Him. My mother blinked twice, again. I then said some personal words to my mother telling her how much I loved her, what a wonderful mother she had been to me and that I would see her soon. We then cried together and I said my goodbyes.

A few days later, my mother died. The hospice nurse that cared for her in her last hours told me that a strange thing happened right before my mother passed. She said that my mother had slipped into a state of sleep but noticed at the end that her lips began to move. The nurse thought maybe her lips were dry and so she turned to get some moisturizer for my mother. When she turned back to tend to my mother, she was gone. In this, the Lord was showing me that my mother had done what He had instructed her to do when it was her time to go. God called out her name and she answered Him.

The Lord taught me some very important lessons through this experience with my mother. I can sum them up in four words. Prayer, grace, mercy and obedience. Even though I thought there was nothing more I could do for my mother, I still prayed. The Lord extended grace to my mother and showed her mercy even though she did not deserve it, as none of us do. And God honored my obedience to Him and honored my prayers for my mother. My mother received salvation and is at peace, in perfect joy and in perfect health in glorious Heaven with the Lord.

As for me, I am ecstatic! For I will see my beautiful, strong and amazing mother again.

GOD SPEAKS MESSAGES THROUGH OTHERS

In 1997, ten years after I accepted Christ as my Lord and Savior, I cried out to God one day in the midst of struggling through yet another hurtful situation that was going on in my life. I remember desperately wanting and needing to hear God’s voice. I had been praying and seeking God, but I felt like He was not responding to me in the way that I wanted Him to. What happened that unforgettable day became a milestone in my life. It catapulted my faith and solidified what I had been believing about God for years, which was that God still audibly speaks to His children. For it is written that if you “seek the Lord, you will find Him if you seek Him with all your heart and with all your soul.” (Deuteronomy 4:29)

I was working for a company that was located only a few miles from my house at the time. While I was at work, I was having trouble focusing and I felt like I was on the verge of tears, so I decided to go home for lunch so I could spend some time alone with the Lord to pray. I remember coming home and going directly to my bedroom. I placed my purse on the dresser and fell to my knees beside my bed. I then immediately began to cry out to God. I begged Him to appear to me and I explained that I desperately needed Him to physically hold me and audibly tell me that He loved me.

Even though I truly did believe God loved me, that day I truly needed to hear it and feel it. For almost an hour or so, I continued travailing in my bedroom on my knees. Yet, much to my disappointment, God did not appear to me and neither did He speak to me. Then I became angry and I started yelling and challenging God to appear before me in my bedroom. I then lifted my right arm up into the air and begged Him to touch my hand. “I know the Bible says You are real and I believe You are real,” I cried out, “but I really need to know, without a shadow of a doubt, that You are real.” Still, much to my disappointment, God did not appear to me and neither did He speak to me. By this time, I had become completely worn out from all the crying and yelling I was doing. Feeling even more frustrated than I was before I came home, I looked at the clock and realized my lunch hour was almost over. So I got up, grabbed my purse and began walking towards the front door. Just as I turned the knob to open the door, the phone rang. I decided to ignore the call because I did not want to chance being late for work, when the answering machine (this was the year 1997) picked up the call. I was compelled to stand there and listen, then I heard my seven year old daughter, who was calling me from her elementary school, speaking on the other end of the phone.

I have to say that my youngest daughter had never called me from school before that day and never did again after that day. This is what I heard her say: “Hi Mommy. This is Nikki. I asked my teacher if I could call you and she said I could. I just wanted to call and let you know that I love you, Mommy. And when I get home, I’m going to hold you because I want you to know just how much I love you.  Mommy, I love you very, very much. Well, I have to go now. I’ll see you when I get home. Bye.”

After I heard my daughter’s message, I quickly closed the door and ran over to the answering machine. I dropped to my knees and began to cry bitterly. I knew that although the voice on the phone belonged to my young daughter, the words I heard belonged to my loving God. The Lord was speaking to me through my daughter. I hit replay on the answering machine over and over again listening intently to every single word. Then I grabbed a piece of paper and a pen and wrote down everything my daughter said. Then I carefully tucked that piece of paper into my Bible for safe keeping.

Was I late for work that day? Probably, I don’t remember. But I will never forget that day, for it was a day God revealed Himself to me in a very real and very dramatic way. Why He chose to communicate to me in the way He did, I don’t know. Why He chose to do it through my daughter, I don’t know. Could He have physically appeared to me and spoken to me Himself? Of course He could have. He is God. Only God knows why He does what He does the way He does and for the reasons that He does it. In all the many ways He does it, God still speaks to His children.

GOD SPEAKS MESSAGES DELIVERED BY OTHERS

As a prophet, at times I am given messages from God to deliver to others. However, there are times when God delivers messages to me by others. Either way, it is important to know that communicating messages on behalf of God requires extreme caution – both from the deliverer and from the receiver. It is our responsibility to confirm any and all word we receive as a word from God.

I remember a time in my life when God used a young girl with a sweet spirit to usher me into a ministry I felt unqualified to begin… I was working as Marketing Director in a capacity where it was my responsibility to create programs for a community of youth. I called a meeting and invited the youth to explain to them what I wanted to do. I encouraged their feedback and eagerly anticipated the kinds of programs that would interest them. Following that meeting, a young teenage girl who had attended the meeting began to visit me in my office. After a few visits, she began to share with me her dreams she had for her future and her desire for a better life other than what was being offered to her by her struggling single-parent mother. She asked me if I would consider starting a program that would help her do just that.

In the days following, I could not get the young girl, or our conversation, out of my mind. I considered etiquette classes at first. However, as she continued to come by my office and talk to me about her future, I knew I needed to offer her so much more.

After sharing all of this with my husband, he asked me if I had considered starting a teen ministry for girls. Surprised at his response, I quickly replied that I had not. I was no Bible scholar. Neither did I have any formal training. However, it quickly became clear to me that there was nothing I could possibly offer her, or anyone else who was interested in changing their life, that could benefit them more than would an introduction to Jesus Christ.

Not believing I was qualified to head up such an important task, I prayed continuously for confirmation and direction from the Lord. Things began to happen that confirmed God’s plan for me to begin a teen ministry for girls. So, I gave the Lord my word that if He would clearly open the door, I would walk through it. God did just that! And He opened the door wide! Before too long, a teen ministry for girls was birthed and it grew exponentially! God had a message for me and He used a young girl to deliver it. Today, young women ministers have come out of that ministry and that young girl, who God used to start it all, is a successful young woman with a family who loves the Lord.

God was perfectly capable of communicating to me directly and yet He chose to use a young girl I did not know but came to love as a daughter. God also loves to use His people as vessels He can pour into and pour out of. He is not looking for polished professionals, He is looking for those who are hungry for His word. He is looking for those He can train and who are willing to be obedient. Neither is God put off by our need to confirm His word. In fact, He requires it. 1 John 4:1 states: “Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world.”

GOD SPEAKS THROUGH HIS WORD

All Scripture is breathed out by God (2 Timothy 3:16) so when God speaks to us through His word, which is the Holy Bible, He is speaking to us through His Inspired word. These are words that were poured out thousands of years ago by His obedient vessels to deliver messages that were meant to minister to us concerning our past, our present and our future. God’s word is alive! God’s word is active. God’s word is sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing and dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow. God’s word discerns the thoughts and the intentions of the heart. (Hebrews 4:12)

When I first began to read my Bible as a new Believer in my early twenties, I remember how I felt. I was at a point of brokenness and despair. My own life was in ruins on account of many decisions I had made and I was seeking answers. As I looked around me, I questioned my own existence.  “Is this all there is?” I thought. “Does life merely consist of one’s own selfish pursuit of happiness?” With all the complexities I could see in the world around me, there had to be more to it than that. It was then that I began to wonder about God. It was then that I began to read the Bible for the first time in my life. “But from there you will seek the Lord your God and you will find Him, if you search after Him with all your heart and with all your soul.” (Deuteronomy 4:29) Little did I know, that He was drawing me to Him. Little did I know that it was the beginning of a lifetime journey of seeking God. Little did I know that I would surely find Him…

As I read my Bible for the first time, I felt as though I was being drawn into the words and made to experience everything as though I was right there, real time. I started out reading the Bible as I would any new book, from the beginning. It was there in the Old Testament that I was introduced to the Triune Spirit. Not only did I learn about God, I came to know Him as the one and only God of the universe. As I continued in my journey, I also came to know, love and understand that very same God as my friend, my Father and my Lord.

When I entered into the New Testament – having no previous knowledge of Jesus – I could not understand why some of the words were red throughout this book even though I clearly felt moved to tears every time I would read them. I soon learned that those beautiful red words belonged to Jesus.

It was through the words of Jesus – the one and only virgin-born Son of God and who is also God – that I came to understand the true meaning of love for the very first time in my life. I discovered it to be an unconditional love – nothing like the so-called conditional “what have you done for me lately” kind of love that the world teaches. It was the words of Jesus that drew me to Him and beckoned me to accept Him as my Lord and my Savior. It was the words of Jesus that answered all my questions. It was the words of Jesus that saved my life.

The power behind God’s word is a mystery. It is one of many miracles that cannot be explained. It transcends our natural mind’s ability to comprehend. Nevertheless, as His children, we eagerly trust God and by faith we believe His word for it is written: “His thoughts are not our thoughts, nor are our ways His ways says the Lord. For as the Heavens are higher than the Earth, so are His ways higher than our ways, and His thoughts than our thoughts.” (Isaiah 55:8-9)

I have read the Bible from beginning to end several times and every time I read it, the Lord speaks to me as if I was reading it for the first time. The understanding is always deeper and more profound. Even though the Author of Life is the ancient of days, this book of old always delivers a brand new message that is fresh and on par with everything I am experiencing today. The voice of God, as spoken through His word, is yet another supernatural phenomenon you have to experience first hand to understand.

To those of you who are questioning life and your unique place in it, God is calling you to Him. Do not be afraid to answer Him. I urge you to quickly respond with prayer by saying, “I am here, Lord. Speak to me and I will listen. Speak to me and I will obey.” He will. Call out to Jesus and ask Him to reveal Himself to you in a very real and a very personal way. Then, begin reading the Bible for yourself. I recommend that you read the King James version or the New King James version at first. Take your time as you read and study God’s word. The Lord tells us to Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” 2 Timothy 2:15

Hold on tight! You are about to embark upon the journey of a lifetime as you personally experience the miraculous, supernaturally living word of God.

GOD SPEAKS BY DIRECTING & REDIRECTING OUR CIRCUMSTANCES

A follower of Jesus Christ has many benefits and privileges… This includes the peace we experience in knowing that God has everything concerning our lives under His control – even when we don’t. Proverbs 16:9 tells us that “A man’s heart may plan his way, but it is the Lord who directs his steps.”

I can’t tell you the number of times God has directed and re-directed me by using various circumstances in my life. Through divine detours, God is saying to you, “I am closing this door because it will lead you to a place I do not want you to go.” Or, “I have allowed this to happen because there is a lesson in this experience that I want you to learn.” Or, “I am removing this from you because I have something better in mind.” Or, “I will open this door because in this place I am going to bless you.”

Change can often be uncomfortable and painful. Yet, you must still trust God in the midst of change to manage your life as He deems necessary. God tells us that He will work all things together for the good of those who love Him, for those who are called according to His purpose. (Romans 8:28)

As we follow our own plans and the desires of our heart, we sometimes knowingly – and even unknowingly – can end up where God does not want us to be. There are times that even with our best intentions at heart, we can still make mistakes. When this happens, God will do whatever is necessary to redirect us so that we are placed back on the path that leads us where He desires us to go. However, if you are not where you should be due to your disobedience to the Lord, He will very often allow you to continue in that direction as well as permit painful consequences into your life to teach you what you are refusing to learn.

It wasn’t that long ago, that God had to re-direct me and my life in a very dramatic way. I thought my life was going according to God’s plan. Where I was and everything I was doing made perfect sense to me but the Lord saw things differently. In order to get me back on track so that God could fulfill His plan for my life, He had to change some things that affected my life and the lives of those who were closest to me.  “My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My ways, saith the Lord. For as the Heavens are higher than the Earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts.” Isaiah 55:8-9

It is easy to become distracted by life. For this reason, we must always be in right fellowship with the Lord. It is only then that we are able to pray, seek God’s guidance and know that He will hear us. And it is only then that we are able to hear God respond.

Psalm 1:1-6 tells us that the man who does not walk in the counsel of the ungodly is blessed. Neither does he stand in the path of sinners. Nor does he sit in the seat of the scornful. Instead, he delights in the law of the Lord and in God’s law, he meditates day and night. He that is blessed is like a tree planted by the rivers of water that brings forth its fruit in its season and whose leaf shall not wither. Whatever he does shall prosper. However, this is not so with the ungodly for they are like the chaff which the wind blows away. The ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor shall the sinners be in the congregation of the righteous. For the Lord knows the way of the righteous, but the way of the ungodly shall perish.

GOD SPEAKS THROUGH OUR DREAMS & VISIONS

God also speaks to His children through dreams and visions. If He has given you this gift, you will find that God speaks to warn, prepare, confirm, convict, encourage, inspire and rebuke His children. This subject alone is worthy of its own post for there is so much to say about it. I will expound on it later in a different message.

ARE YOU MISSING THE VOICE OF GOD?

There is so much more that can be said here about the audible voice of God but the bottom line is that God still very much speaks to His children. However, we need to be mindful to listen for Him for we can miss hearing Him. In fact, God is always speaking but sometimes we, His children, are not always able to hear His voice. God does not scream at you. He will not force Himself on you.

It is possible to miss the voice of God. There are many reasons for this. Are you a Believer in Jesus Christ? Have you made Him the Lord and Savior of your life? Do you believe His word? Do you believe God can and will speak to you? Are you too busy or too distracted to hear God’s voice? Is there sin in your life? All of these things will place a barrier between you and the voice of God. When God’s voice is not resonant in your life, the result is devastating. Prayers are unheard, blessings are blocked and you miss God’s best for you. If you are a Believer, there is a remedy. If you are not a Believer, there is still a remedy – become one. Either way, the remedy is the same… Seek God with all of your heart.

“You will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart.” Jeremiah 29:11

Introducing AUTHOR OF LIFE POETIC INSPIRATIONS!

As far back as I can remember, I have loved and appreciated the art and the gift of literary expression. Since a child, I have found pleasure in writing stories, poetry, essays and any excuse I could find to express myself. However, my writing changed in the fall of 2001. On the eve of what was to become the most painful period of my life, I heard the audible voice of God for the first time and supernaturally I began to receive inspirational, Holy Spirit-inspired psalms and poems from the Lord…

These literary ‘gifts’ would come to me when I least expected them so I tried to keep a pen and paper handy in my purse, by my bed, in the car or anywhere else I thought the Lord would speak to me.

As the stormy winds of life blew in hard and cold, these beautiful gifts spoke peace into my life as they comforted me and ministered to me through it all. As the psalms and poems continued to come, my husband often urged me to consider sharing them for ministry purposes. However, at the time, the idea of sharing my writings felt as if I was allowing the world to enter into my bedroom. It was too soon and too invasive. These psalms and poems spoke to me concerning details of my life that were deeply personal and so I hid them away on the top shelf of my bedroom closet for safe keeping.

In 2012, however, the Lord changed my heart. During a time of grief and family loss, I shared one of my poems with a loved one and was surprised to see it minister to them as much as it had ministered to me. My husband was right. So, I began the process of designing and publishing my work. However, my efforts were often frustrated by the distractions of life and the ploys of the enemy so, once again, I tucked them away on the top shelf of my bedroom closet for another time.

The Lord continued to nudge me over the years and I continued to allow life to distract me. However, in the summer of 2016, the Lord spoke to me yet again urging me to focus on my writing. This time, He reminded me of the gift He had given me and the ministry it was given for.

Not long after this, the Lord woke me from sleep one night with an idea for my poetry: What He showed me was a collection of ministering Gift Books. Each ‘gift book’ was to be beautifully illustrated ‘and devoted to one poem/psalm of my choosing with its theme carried throughout. It would be a short read and include theme-related vignettes. Each book would also include journals for the reader to record their thoughts, prayers and reflections. “What a perfect idea,” I thought. One worthy of each and every one of those divinely-inspired psalms and poems. Upon waking, I immediately began the work the Lord had given me. This time, with a commitment to continue to completion…

I am very pleased to announce that my poetic work is finished!

Introducing AUTHOR OF LIFE POETIC INSPIRATIONS: A DIVINELY INSPIRED POEM & PSALM COLLECTION. This beautiful collection of seventeen inspirational ‘gift books‘ uniquely presents this original, poetic work.

Of the silver-tongued message through silence of gold:

Speak boldly of Christ though you won’t say a word.”

VISIONS WARN EARTHQUAKES ARE COMING TO THE UNITED STATES SOON!

“And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. But do not be troubled for all these things must come to pass before the end. Nation will rise against nation and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences (deadly diseases, viruses, plagues, etc.) and earthquakes in various places. All these things are the beginnings of sorrows.” (Mark 13)

God is speaking to His Church. He is revealing many different signs and wonders for the purpose of warning and preparation. According to the Holy Bible, major catastrophic earthquakes have been predicted to come just prior to the time of tribulation. Over the years, I have been shown dreams of desolation and destruction that is coming. I have been given dreams of instruction for the Church on how to survive the days of tribulation when they come. I have received dreams demonstrating the Lord informing His Church that they must immediately ‘clean their house’ which is the temple of the Holy Spirit who dwells inside of us, for He is returning very, very soon. Only a week following that particular dream, I was shown another revealing to me one word: IMMINENT. Jesus is not just coming soon, He is standing at the door waiting for the impending word from the Father. Child of God, the Lord is warning you that the “beginnings of sorrows”, spoken of in Mark 13, are upon us.

Now as Jesus sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, asking, “Tell us, when will these things be? And what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?” And Jesus answered them and said: “Take heed that no one deceives you. For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and they will deceive many. And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. But do not be troubled for all these things must come to pass before the end. Nation will rise against nation and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences (deadly diseases, viruses, plagues, etc.) and earthquakes in various places. All these things are the beginnings of sorrows. “Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake. And then many will be offended because of you. They will betray one another and hate one another. Brother will betray brother to the death, and a father his child; and children will rise up against their parents and cause them to be put to death. And you will be hated by all for My name’s sake. Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many. And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold. But he who endures to the end shall be saved. Then this gospel of the Kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations and then the end will come.

OPEN VISIONS WARNING OF DEVASTATING EARTHQUAKES COMING TO THE UNITED STATES

In 2008, my husband and I went out to eat at a local restaurant. The weather was beautiful that day and there was nothing was out of the ordinary. As we began to eat, I suddenly felt the ground violently shake beneath my feet. I looked around to see what was happening. Again, nothing was out of the ordinary. Then, it happened again, I felt the ground shake beneath my feet. I then looked at my husband and asked him if he had felt the ground shaking and he replied that he had not. We finished our meal then we left the restaurant and returned home. I wrote this event down in my journal.

Later that evening, as I watched a television program, a different scene was superimposed over the television program I was watching. What I saw was a woman appearing on a screen as a weather broadcaster. She was holding a long, narrow pointing stick in her hand and was pointing to two columns that were listed on a board on the wall. Each column displayed approximately five or six major cities throughout the United States. I remember seeing Atlanta because we lived in a city not far from there at the time, which alarmed me, and I remember seeing Los Angeles. There were others but I cannot recall them all. She stood there pointing to each city and was warning me of eminent earthquakes that were to come to those cities. Not realizing at the time that what I had seen was a vision, I immediately left the room to ask my husband if he had heard the news about the earthquakes. He had no idea what I was talking about. When I returned to the living room to show him what I had seen, the vision was gone and the original programming had returned. I knew what I had seen and heard so I proceeded to search the television news and weather channels to show my husband, but I found nothing. I then searched the internet for the information about the earthquakes, but again, I found nothing. I was reminded of the ‘shaking ground incident’ I had experienced earlier in the restaurant so I wrote this experience down in my journal as well. All of this took place in 2008.

Eight years later, in the early part of 2016, I had another vision that involved a shaking. As I lay upon my bed resting, I close my eyes for just a second when I saw a date flash before my eyes. The date revealed to me a month, a day and a year and then it began to violently shake from side to side. When I opened my eyes, it was gone. For reasons only God knows, I was not permitted to remember the date that I saw. God’s timing is everything.

What can you do? Draw near to the Lord so that you may clearly hear His voice, for His instructions will be the only advice that will save you during this time. If earthquakes are coming to a city near you, listen to the voice of the Lord. Is He warning you? Is He moving you? Is He changing and rearranging people and circumstances in your life. Do not think it strange God begins to allow things to happen that affect your job, your relationships, your living situations, etc. Like in a chess game, He is strategizing and orchestrating His moves. He is putting key people in place to usher in His will for this world. He is moving His people, as well as others, into new places where He wants them to be for His purpose. Do not resist the Lord when He speaks to you. If you find that He is requiring you to do something that is uncomfortable or unconventional for you. Do not question Him. Just listen to Him and obey. This time is a crucial time for God’s Church. The Lord is busy navigating change that will effect everyone and everything. What is coming, and even what is happening now,  is destined to change this world as we know it – forever. Brace yourself, expect it and be ready.

A PROPHETIC DREAM: THE HILLARY, THE DONALD & THE WARNING OF ALIGNING

On the day before the 2016 presidential election, between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, my husband and I had a disagreement. For the first time in my adult life, I felt strongly that I should NOT vote for either of the candidates. However, my husband disagreed.

That evening, I did something I’m a bit embarrassed to say I had not done previously in any other election… I prayed. I asked God what He thought I should do. I specifically prayed and asked that He either confirm my convictions to not vote in the election or speak to me clearly otherwise. Then I went to bed.

That night, God not only gave me a dream, He gave me an immediate interpretation upon waking from that dream. In the dream, I saw a couple – an older white man and an older white woman, together. They were not married to each other and they were climbing into bed to have sex. In the dream, my husband suggested that we climb into bed with them – to also have sex. I was horrified that my husband would suggest such a thing, but he persisted and insisted that it would be okay. So, I eventually gave in, against my better judgement. As my husband and I climbed into bed and laid next to the older white couple, strangely, it appeared as if they didn’t see us or know that we were there. In the dream, my husband’s focus was on the couple. He watched everything they did and then tried to repeat what he saw them doing with me. In spite of my protesting, my husband obsessively, and even uncontrollably, continued to emulate the actions of the older couple. Then I awoke.

Immediately upon waking, the Lord gave me the interpretation of the dream.  The Lord made it known to me that if I, or my husband, were to vote for either Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump, it would be likened to climbing into bed with sin for God saw both parties as unrighteous and evil. God further explained that when we align ourselves with people, such as in an election, when we enter into friendships and relationships, when we enter into business partnerships and even when we choose a spouse, we are becoming spiritually party to every decision that person makes. God made it known to me that He holds us accountable for every decision we make, even ones concerning people we align ourselves with. In aligning ourselves with people, by default, we are even agreeing to the same spiritual consequences that person will receive on account of the decisions that they make. In essence, when we align ourselves with others, we become yoked together with them. This becomes a fiduciary relationship and when we enter into such, we are delegating our spiritual power to them allowing them to act on our behalf.

After I shared my dream and its interpretation with my husband, he knew it was from the Lord and agreed with me. Neither of us voted that day.

Now, my experience may not be your experience. Just as my walk with God is not the same as your walk with God. This particular message was for me. I am not here to tell you with who you should or should not be aligning yourself. That responsibility belongs solely to God. I am only here to share the universal message of warning I received through this dream. If you are not sure about what I am saying. No problem. Let God be true and every man a liar. Align it up with the word of God. You will find that what I am saying is actually scriptural. The Holy Bible clearly tells us “Do not be deceived: “Evil company corrupts…” (1 Corinthians 15:33)

Child of God, especially in these times and absolutely for the times that are to come, as a Believer, you must have your own personal relationship with Jesus Christ. How else can you, and will you, be able to survive the deception that is all around you? And it is everywhere, including in the Church. Christianity is not a faith or a religion. It is a relationship. God speaks to His children – when His children are speaking to Him.

The take-away here is this. Beloved, be very careful about the people with whom you enter into an agreement with. The decisions you make, and those you make them with, are not to be taken lightly. As a Believer, you must understand the importance of submitting every one, every thing and every decision to the Lord for His approval, His counsel and His guidance.  The access that you, as a Child of God, has to the throne room of God is mandatory, immeasurable and priceless. Use it. However, it has to be said that this privilege is only possible for those who are in relationship with Him through His son, Jesus Christ. Always remember  that there are supernatural repercussions behind every decision you make in the natural.

This dream was a wake-up call for me. I pray that it opens your eyes as well.

THE TRUTH BEHIND WITCHCRAFT, DEMONIC SPIRITS & FALSE SEERS

Satan is a counterfeit master. His entire existence is based off of emulating everything that is godly and everything that belongs to God. His efforts have deceived many.

 

Satan was once an angel who lived in God’s Heavenly Kingdom. His privileged position granted him first-hand knowledge of God’s Kingdom secrets including how God ruled the Heavens and placement of God’s angelic hierarchy. The following scripture from the Holy Bible explains Satan’s expulsion from Heaven.

 

“And war broke out in Heaven: Michael and his angels fought with the dragon; and the dragon and his angels fought, but they did not prevail, nor was a place found for them in heaven any longer. So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was cast to the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. Then I heard a loud voice saying in Heaven, “Now salvation, and strength, and the Kingdom of our God, and the power of His Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethren, who accused them before our God day and night, has been cast down. And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death. Therefore rejoice, O Heavens, and you who dwell in them! Woe to the inhabitants of the earth and the sea! For the devil has come down to you, having great wrath, because he knows that he has a short time.” Revelation 12:7-12

 

After Satan was expelled from Heaven, along with other fallen angels who followed him, he set up shop, so to speak, here on Earth. He has been disrupting the world, corrupting the people and trying his best to emulate God in everything he does in an effort to continue to deceive the people. .

 

Make no mistake, the devil does have power. However, you must remember that the devil is also a created being – a God-created being. The power he was given, by God, is like a pebble compared to the mountain-size sovereignty, power and majestic rule of God.

 

Many of you may wonder why God didn’t remove Satan’s power from him when he was thrown out of Heaven. Simply, because the devil has a job to do, just like you and me. God uses the limited amount of power that the devil has to sift the evil out of this world. God has Satan on a leash. Yes, he is wreaking havoc, but only for a time and only under the control of almighty God. When his time is up, not only will the devil be cast down into the fiery pit of Hell, he will be taking all of his counterparts along with him. And he knows this. Hopefully, that won’t include you.

 

Because the devil knows his time is short – and it really is – things in the demonic realm are really ramping up. The interesting, and almost amusing, thing about all of this is that Satan still believes – or at least that’s what he has convinced his followers – that somehow his original, diabolical plan to ‘take over the world’ is still going to happen. At least, he’s going to give it his best shot. However, we Believers have already read the story and we know how it will end. Jesus will return and He, and all who follow Him, will be victorious.

 

As stated above, the devil is a counterfeit master. He copies everything that belongs to God. The office of a Seer Prophet, and the gifts that come along with this office such as dreams, visions, discerning of spirits, words of knowledge, etc. were all established by God and were all given by God. Satan knows this. So he uses his demons and the limited amount of demonic power they and he have to indwell his followers – no it’s not the people who has the power, it’s the demons – and these people are put into place to use this demonic power, demonically charged spells, demonically charged potions, etc. to emulate the Holy Spirit’s gifts that are given by God. There is no such thing as a Seer that serves the devil. Only people who serve the devil who are counterfeit copies of the originals.

 

These demon spirit-indwelled counterfeits are the witches, the fortune tellers, the spiritualists, the necromancers, etc. who take the people’s money and exploit their ignorance, their curiosity, their grief, their vulnerabilities, etc. Not to mention, these evil-indwelled people are helping people of all ages – many who are not aware of the danger they are engaging in – to open doors to demon-possession and demonic attacks on their lives, the lives of their children, their family members and generations yet to come. This is how generational curses get started.

 

I hope I have cleared up some confusion and answered some questions concerning magic and the truth behind all forms of witchcraft, demonic spirits and false seer prophets.

PROPHECY: A COMPILATION OF PROPHETIC MESSAGES by R’chelle Cyrus-Hughes

“Lord, who has believed our message? To whom has the Lord revealed His powerful arm?” John 12:38

I have experienced dreams, visions and words of knowledge since I was a child. However, at the time, I did not understand what they were and why I was having them. It wasn’t until the year 2001, at the direction of my husband, that I began the process of journaling my experiences.

On January 23, 2017, I shared a dream with my husband. In the dream, the Lord had given me a message for him. Later that day, my husband (an apostle), heard the Lord say in his spirit: “If there is a prophet among you, I will make Myself known to them through dreams and visions.” After my husband shared God’s message with me, I prayed and asked the Lord, Himself, to confirm His word with me concerning my call.

On January 24, 2017 at 3:30 a.m., I received a vision from the Lord. In this vision, God answered my prayer. In large, beautifully ornate capital letters, God confirmed my call. I was shown only one word: SEER.

The dreams, visions and supernatural encounters I have experienced over the years have revealed messages to me concerning my life, my family, my friends – and most importantly, God’s people – His Church.

PROPHETIC MESSAGES FOR THE CHURCH AS OF AUGUST 5, 2017

FOR THE LORD SAYS, “I WILL SHAKE ALL THINGS”. HE WILL SHAKE HEAVEN, EARTH, DRY LAND, THE SEA, THE NATIONS AND ALL PEOPLE. WHOEVER OR WHATEVER IS NOT ESTABLISHED ON THE FIRM FOUNDATION OF THE ROCK, WHICH IS JESUS CHRIST, WILL CRUMBLE, FALL AND BE DESTROYED.

2008 – AN OPEN VISION REVEALS GOD’S JUDGEMENT. I AM SHOWN SPECIFIC CITIES AND STATES IN THE U.S. THAT WILL EXPERIENCE DESTRUCTION BY A MIGHTY EARTHQUAKE THAT IS SOON TO COME. “I WILL SHAKE ALL THINGS,” SAYS THE LORD.

Early 2016 – AN ANGELIC VISITATION COMES WITH THE MIGHTY SOUND OF A LOUD AND POWERFUL WHIRLWIND. A BRILLIANT WHITE LIGHT EXPANDS AND CONSUMES MY BEDROOM. I SEE AN ANGEL TO MY RIGHT THAT IS BRIGHTER THAN THE LIGHT THAT WAS IN MY ROOM. I AM LIFTED UP OFF MY BED BY THE ANGEL. I PANICK AND GRAB AHOLD OF MY HUSBAND. I REFUSE TO LEAVE MY FAMILY AND SAY, “I AM NOT READY.” I RECEIVE A MESSAGE: “UNLESS YOU GIVE UP EVERYTHING, YOU CANNOT FOLLOW ME.” I SUBMIT. WE MUST ALL SUBMIT TO GOD AND LAY EVERYTHING DOWN AT THE FEET OF JESUS CHRIST. “WHEREEVER YOU GO, LORD, I WILL FOLLOW.”

October 25, 2016 – A DREAM REVEALS A MESSAGE FROM THE LORD. I AM SHOWN A VAST, DRY AND BARREN LAND. I SEE THE WORLD’S ARMY, THEN I SEE GOD’S ARMY. DESTRUCTION IS COMING. I AM GIVEN SPECIFIC INSTRUCTIONS THAT LEAD ME TO SAFETY. A HEAR A MIGHTY EXPLOSION AND SEE THE DEATH OF MANY.

DEMONS CAN AND WILL ATTACH THEMSELVES TO PEOPLE AND OBJECTS (I. E. BOOKS, MOVIES, MUSIC, PAINTINGS, WALL HANGINGS, DECOR, ARTIFACTS, IDOLS, CURIOS, ETC.) THAT HAVE HAD A SPELL/CURSE PUT ON THEM. IF THESE ITEMS ARE ON YOUR PERSON OR WITHIN YOUR HOME, DEMONS HAVE THE RIGHT TO DEMONIZE YOU, YOUR FAMILY AND YOUR HOME. DESTROY AND RID YOUR HOME OF ALL SUCH OBJECTS THEN PRAY FOR DELIVERANCE.

November 5, 2016 – AFTER PRAYING FOR DIRECTION FROM THE LORD CONCERNING THE PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION, I RECEIVE A DREAM THAT REVEALS A MESSAGE FROM THE LORD. “DO NOT VOTE IN THE UPCOMING ELECTION FOR BOTH PARTIES ARE EVIL.” BE CAREFUL OF WHO YOU ASSOCIATE WITH. BELIEVERS ARE NOT TO ‘ALIGN’ (I.E. MARRIAGE, VOTING, FRIENDSHIPS, BUSINESS PARTNERSHIPS, ETC.) THEMSELVES WITH NON-BELIEVERS. TO DO THIS IS TO SUBJECT YOURSELF TO AND SHARE IN THEIR SIN AS WELL AS THE JUDGEMENT OF THEIR SIN.

November, 2016 – THE LORD INSTRUCTS ME TO LAY HANDS ON A TEENAGE BOY AT A LOCAL CHURCH MY HUSBAND AND I VISIT. THE BOY IS COUGHING INCESSANTLY. I OBEY AND HE STOPS COUGHING.

January 25, 2017 – I HEAR THE AUDIBLE VOICE OF THE LORD: “I AM GIVING YOU BACK THE PROMISE OF LIFE.” THIS ‘PROMISE’ IS LIFE AS WE HAVE IT IN CHRIST JESUS. PAUL SPOKE OF THIS ‘PROMISE’ DESCRIBING IT AS “THE POWER OF GOD LET LOOSE AMONG MEN, THE POWER OF GOD UNTO SALVATION.” (ROMANS 1:16) ALL BELIEVERS ARE ENTITLED TO THIS PROMISE YET NOT ALL BELIEVERS ARE POSITIONED TO RECEIVE IT. IN FACT, THE NAMES OF MANY BELIEVERS HAVE BEEN BLOTTED OUT FROM THE BOOK OF LIFE FOR THERE IS SIN STANDING BETWEEN THEM AND THE LORD. GOD IS “GIVING YOU BACK THE PROMISE OF LIFE” IF YOU WILL ONLY REPENT AND TURN AWAY FROM YOUR SIN. DO NOT ALLOW SIN TO REMAIN IN YOUR LIFE AND KEEP YOU FROM RECEIVING WHAT IS RIGHTFULLY YOURS.

February 17, 2017 – A DREAM REVEALS A MESSAGE FROM THE LORD CONCERNING HIS CHURCH. I AM SHOWN AN IMAGE OF A CHURCH. IN THIS DREAM, I SEE ALL FIVE OFFICES OF THE FIVE FOLD MINISTRY PRESENT (APOSTLE, PROPHET, EVANGELIST, PASTOR & TEACHER). THEY ARE POSITIONED ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE CHURCH. EACH OFFICE HAS BEFORE THEM A CUP OF WATER THAT REPRESENTS THE HOLY SPIRIT. THE CHURCH CONGREGATION IS SEATED ON THE LEFT. A PODIUM, WITH A MICROPHONE ATTACHED, IS IN THE CENTER. ALL ARE ON THE SAME LEVEL. NO ONE OFFICE IS ELEVATED ABOVE THE OTHER. NO ONE OFFICE IS ESTEEMED ABOVE THE OTHER. A CHURCH THAT DOES NOT UTILIZE ALL FIVE OFFICES OF THE FIVE-FOLD MINISTRY IS INCOMPLETE AND INEFFECTIVE. GOD WANTS A NEW THING THAT IS ACTUALLY AN OLD THING. THIS IS A PICTURE OF THE NEW TESTAMENT CHURCH.

May 13, 2017 – A DREAM REVEALS A MESSAGE FROM THE LORD: GOD’S PEOPLE, GET READY FOR JESUS IS RETURNING VERY SOON!  HE IS EXAMINING EACH AND EVERY ONE OF US WITHOUT EXCEPTION. HE IS WARNING ALL BELIEVERS TO ‘CLEAN HOUSE’ AND RID THEMSELVES OF TRASH (SIN) AND DEBRIS (UNRIGHTEOUSNESS) OF EVERY KIND. THE WARNING INCLUDES A PENALTY NOTICE FOR ANYONE WHO CHOOSES NOT TO HEED THE VOICE OF THE LORD. THE PENALTY WILL INCLUDE THE PAYMENT OF ETERNAL DEATH. JESUS IS RETURNING SOON ON A DAY THAT IS UNSPECIFIED AND UNEXPECTED. ON THE DAY OF HIS RETURN, THERE WILL BE NO MORE WARNINGS GIVEN FOR THEN IT WILL BE TOO LATE. THOSE WHO CHOOSE TO HEED THE WARNING OF THE LORD WILL BE CLEAN AND WILL BE GRANTED ENTRANCE INTO HIS GLORY. THOSE WHO DO NOT WILL BE GRANTED ENTRANCE INTO HELL.

June, 2017 – A VISION REVEALS A WORD FROM THE LORD: ‘EMINENT.’ PEOPLE, HEED THE VOICE OF THE LORD! THE RETURN OF JESUS IS EMINENT!

July, 2017 – THE LORD SPEAKS TO MY SPIRIT: GOD IS NOT PLEASED WITH MOST OF THE CHURCHES THAT ARE OPERATING TODAY FOR MANY HAVE WITHIN THEM SPIRITS OF ‘MANIPULATION,’ ‘INTIMIDATION’ AND ‘CONTROL.’ THESE PEOPLE WILL BE JUDGED IF THEY DO NOT REPENT AND RECEIVE DELIVERANCE FROM THESE SPIRITS. THEY ARE STUMBLING BLOCKS FOR GOD’S PEOPLE. THE LORD ALSO SHARED WITH ME A FORM OF IDOLATRY ALSO PRESENT IN MANY CHURCHES TODAY. HE CALLED IT “PASTOR WORSHIP.” THOSE WHO ARE GUILTY WILL ALSO BE JUDGED IF THEY DO NOT REPENT AND TURN AWAY FROM THIS SIN. THE LORD WILL SHARE HIS GLORY WITH NO ONE.

August 5, 2017 – IN AN EARLY MORNING HOUR, I HEARD THE VOICE OF THE LORD ASK ME, “ARE YOU READY?” I THEN FELT HIS HAND GENTLY TOUCH MY LEFT SHOULDER AWAKENING ME FROM MY SLEEP. ABSOLUTELY! GOD’S PEOPLE, WAKE UP! THERE IS MUCH WORK TO DO. THE HARVEST IS PLENTIFUL BUT THE WORKERS ARE FEW. ARE YOU READY FOR THE IMINENT RETURN OF OUR LORD, JESUS CHRIST?

PROPHETS DON’T JUST DELIVER PAINFUL MESSAGES, GOD MAY REQUIRE THEM TO LIVE THOSE PAINFUL MESSAGES

Prophets are called to not just deliver God’s messages. Very often, they are called to live out, in their personal lives, those very same messages. It is not uncommon for a prophet of God to experience twists, turns, upsets and upheaval in their natural lives that reflect and directly correlate with the divine messages they have been given to deliver.

It was very common for the prophets of old to enact, real time, the prophetic word that was given to them for the people of Israel. Jonah’s hellish experience of three days and three nights spent in the belly of a great fish directly correlates with Jesus’ three days and three nights in “the heart of the earth.” The prophet Hosea was commanded by God to marry a prostitute to imply God’s grievance with the people of Israel as they were engaging in an adulterous relationship with the Lord. And there are many more references in the Bible just like these.

It appears that God requires these up-front and personal encounters so that the prophet can better impart a more effective, passionate and heart-felt prophetic word. The end result is a heart-felt message that can only come from the perspective of one who can relate through their first-hand experiences. As unusual as this may seem, no one can deny this biblical fact as it is seen throughout the accounts of many of the prophets of old.

As a prophet, I can personally attest to this fact and find this supernatural phenomenon to be an unpleasant, but apparently necessary, ‘perk’ that comes along with the prophetic territory.

I share some of my ‘perkish’ experiences and others in a book I am currently writing and planning to release early this Winter entitled Chronicles Of A Seer Prophet.

If there are other prophets and seer prophets out there who have had experiences such as these, I’d love to hear from you.

A PROPHETIC DREAM: THE LANDLORD

On May 13th, 2017, I received a dream from the Lord. I have posted this dream previously in my blog, but I feel an urgency to repost this message again…

God is consistently reaching out to His people in these last days. He is warning His Church, the Body of Christ, to get their “house” in order for He is preparing them for the imminent return of Jesus Christ.

In this dream, I was the subject the Lord used to deliver this message. I saw myself managing a multi-family community. In the community, there were many buildings. In each building were two single-story apartments on the left – one on the top-level and the other on the lower-level – and one two-story townhouse on the right. I saw myself going from building to building examining everyone’s home in the community for cleanliness. I checked the outside and then I checked the inside. I also went to the rear of the house and checked the patios and porches as well. I examined each apartment and townhouse thoroughly for cleanliness and I noted any trash or debris. At the homes where I found trash, I left a notice for the residents to remove it all and informed them that they were in violation. Each notice included a warning that also informed them that I would be returning soon but on an unspecified date. The notice stated that when I returned, a penalty would be imposed on those who chose to ignore my warning and remain in violation. Those residents would incur a penalty that included the enforcement of an eviction.

Some of the residents in the community were obedient and heeded my warning by quickly cleaning their home and removing all the trash. Yet, some were complacent, not thinking it important, and did nothing at all. Others were angry and insisted that I explain to them why they had to comply with my rules. For they felt it was their life and their home therefore, they should be able to live it any way they chose. I explained to these residents that the property they were living on belonged to me and, therefore, I had the right to impose and enforce any rule I felt necessary to keep my property in good condition. I explained to them that they would not live in my community forever, for one day they would have to move on. But while they were here, it would be wise for them to abide by my rules and learn from them for they were in place only for their good. I also informed them that one day, they would desire to move to a more luxurious home. When that day came, they would require a recommendation and referral from me before they would be permitted to move there. I further explained that without my approval, the only type of home they would be able to access would be substandard and guaranteed to be not to their liking. I then awoke from this dream.

Later, the Lord gave me the interpretation… He showed me that in the dream, I was the Landlord and was representing Jesus, the Master Property Manager. The buildings in this dream represented locations all over the world. The apartments and town homes represented three categories of people who make up this world. There were the lower-level apartments that represented the poor, those who are considered the least in this world. There were the upper-level apartments that represented those who are considered above the least in this world. Then there were the two-story townhouses that represented the wealthy and rich in this world. In the dream, they all lived together in one building for the Lord is no respecter of persons who sees and treats everyone the same. We must all meet His requirements and we are all expected to comply regardless of who we are and what we have. My access to all of the homes represents the Lord and His access to everything in our lives. Nothing we do and nothing we feel is hidden from Him. I examined the outside of the home which represents the outer appearance that we show to the world. I examined the interior of the home which represents our motives and intentions that are hidden inside of our hearts. Finally, while inside the homes, I examined the patios and porches which represent the secret trash we hold on to and are hesitant to get rid of and hand over to the Lord.  There is nothing we can hide from God. He sees it all.

Child of God, the Lord is giving you every chance to repent and return to Him. He is speaking to you personally which is the conviction you are experiencing and He is bringing others to warn you as well. You have been adequately prepared and warned. There will be no excuses when your time comes to leave this life and move on into eternity. When that time comes, are you sure about where you will go? Is your life cluttered with the trash of sin and disobedience? If so, will you heed God’s warning and rid yourself of it all before it is too late? When Jesus returns, will you be in right standing with Him? Will you receive a good reference and be approved to move on into the glorious presence of the Lord? Or will you be denied and rejected? Quite simply, will you make it into Heaven or are your destined for Hell? There are many, many former Christians who are spending eternity there and regret not heeding the voice of the Lord when they had the chance. The choice is truly yours.

“Do you not know that you are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit dwells in you? If anyone destroys God’s temple, God will destroy him. For God’s temple is Holy, and you are that temple.” 1 Corinthians 3:16-17

A PROPHETIC VISION: THE FLY & THE COMING DEMONIC ATTACK

Early in the evening of August 17, 2017, I received a very disturbing vision… It was early and I was not quite ready to retire for the evening. Yet, I felt unusually tired so I decided to lie down for just a little while. As I laid down to rest, I suddenly became extremely sleepy. I felt as if I had been drugged and sleep came on me pretty quickly. The moment I closed my eyes, I immediately had a very quick and very vivid vision: I saw a large, black fly come into view then it landed on my left arm. I was alarmed so I immediately brushed the fly off with my right hand then I awoke very suddenly. I gasped for air then sat straight up in the bed. I stood by the bed and tried to process what had just happened. Then the Lord quickly gave me the interpretation of the vision…

DREAMS & VISIONS, SYMBOLIC PARABLES & RIDDLES

Dreams are very much like riddles. They have to be solved. They can also be compared to parables like the ones Jesus told in the Bible. Dreams are not always immediately understood. Often, it can take days, weeks, months and even years to receive a full interpretation. However, every once in a while, depending upon the urgency and timeliness of the situation, the Lord will give me an immediate interpretation, as He did in this case. Visions are usually shorter with messages that are a little easier to understand.

To be quite honest, I don’t understand why there is so much mystery surrounding dreams and visions. I’ve always felt that it would be so much easier if God would simply tell me what it is He wants me to know. However, I am not God and He is. So we do it His way. I do believe, however, that I have found a clue in Scripture that speaks to this. It states: “It is the glory of God to conceal a thing: but the honor of kings is to search out a matter.” (Proverbs 25:2) 

Every dream and vision from God is extremely important. Every detail is symbolic and has significant meaning. The Lord does not give dreams for entertainment purposes. The messages they deliver can often be a matter of life and death. These messages often reveal information about others for the purpose of edification, for warnings, for rebuke, for encouragement, to prepare someone for something that is to come as well as share information that requires prayer on behalf of others. When these messages are revealed, they must be heeded. It might surprise you to know that all dreams do not come from God, as the devil can influence dreams as well.  If you dream, be sure to pray and ask God if the dream was from Him and if so, ask Him to direct you concerning it.

I dream almost every night. A fair amount of the dreams I receive are concerning personal details about my life, family members and other people. God also often gives me messages for the Church, the Body of Christ, as a whole. This was the case with this particular vision.

AUTHORITY & POWER TO FIGHT THE ENEMY

Last year, (2016) the Lord showed me, in a dream, a rod being placed in my left hand. It was revealed that this rod further confirmed my call as a Seer Prophet and represented the authority God has given me, through Jesus Christ, to come against demonic forces. In a different experience and at a different time, the Lord communicated to me that in my right hand He has also placed power, also given through Jesus Christ, to fight these demonic forces. Symbolically, I came to understand that where dreams and visions are concerned, the left represents authority and the right represents power. This authority and power, by the way, is given to every born-again Believer. Although Christians should not fear Satan, this does not mean that we are immune to the temptations he places before us.

We must be aware of the presence of evil in this world. We must understand that our enemies are not mere people, but demonic forces that operate through these people. The Bible says, “For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.” (Ephesians 6:12) The truth is that God has allowed Satan a certain amount of temporary power and influence in this world. However, it is also true that Satan and every other spiritual being is still subject to God’s sovereign control.

VISION INTERPRETATION: THE COMING DEMONIC ATTACK

As I mentioned earlier, dreams and visions are symbolic images that reveal important messages from God. Concerning the vision I had, the Lord revealed to me that the large fly that flew in represented a demonic attack that will soon come against the followers of Jesus Christ. Do not be alarmed. Instead be prepared. We have been given everything we need to counteract this attack. In the vision, the fly landed on my left arm. And if you remember, the left side represents authority. The enemy will try to come against you, the Believer, and the authority the Lord has given you to fight against him. You must be on guard against this attack. In the vision, I quickly brushed the fly off my left arm with my right hand. If you remember, the right side represents power. This is telling me that you have been given the power to quickly come against every demonic attack that tries to come against you. The key word here is quickly. Do not allow sin of any kind to come into your life and linger. If someone hurts you, forgive them quickly. If you fall to temptation, quickly repent and turn from it. Do not allow things like anger, bitterness, unforgiveness, immorality, etc. to remain in your life. This represents filth and garbage in your life. Flies are attracted to such things. Satan is an evil pestilence who wants to kill, steal and destroy you. He literally wants to suck the life out of you – and he will if you allow him.

Following are powerful tools that you have at your disposal to defeat the enemy.

  • YOUR RIGHT STANDING WITH GOD

Don’t step out the door without it. Be sure you are not allowing barriers like sin, unforgiveness, hatred and bitterness to block your right standing with God. This will bind the hands of God from covering you and will prevent your prayers from being answered. Quite simply, without it you are helpless against the enemy and have already lost the battle.

  • PRAYER

God hears the prayers of the righteous. Use your authority to speak forth powerful words for prayer, to bind up the demonic powers of Satan and to loose the many blessings God has for you.

  • SPIRITUAL WEAPONS

Equip yourself with spiritual armor.  Scripture states:  “Be strong in the Lord and in His mighty power. Put on all of God’s armor so that you will be able to stand firm against all strategies of the devil. For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places. Therefore, put on every piece of God’s armor so you will be able to resist the enemy in the time of evil. Then after the battle you will still be standing firm. Stand your ground, putting on the belt of truth and the body armor of God’s righteousness. For shoes, put on the peace that comes from the Good News so that you will be fully prepared. In addition to all of these, hold up the shield of faith to stop the fiery arrows of the devil. Put on salvation as your helmet, and take the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. Pray in the Spirit at all times and on every occasion. Stay alert and be persistent in your prayers for all Believers everywhere.” Ephesians 6:10-18

  • THE AUTHORITY TO CAST OUT DEMONS

Yes, you have been given the authority to cast out demons. If you find that you have come up against resistance with more difficult cases of demonic attacks, contact a Spirit-filled Believer in the Church body who has been given special authority such as those who are experienced in deliverance ministry to assist you. “These miraculous signs will accompany those who believe: They will cast out demons in My name,” Mark 16:17

  • KNOW & USE YOUR SPIRITUAL GIFTS

Become familiar with then fully utilize the spiritual gifts the Lord has given you to fight your adversary. If you don’t know what your gifts are, pray and ask God to reveal them to you.Now these are the gifts Christ gave to the Church: the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, and the pastors and teachers. Their responsibility is to equip God’s people to do His work and build up the Church, the body of Christ.” Ephesians 4:11-12 

  • YOU CAN CALL UPON THE ANGELS

As a Believer, God has assigned His holy angels to assist you in your walk with Jesus Christ and to aid you in this spiritual battle. They are waiting to be dispatched by God for your defense. Call out to God and ask that He send them to guard and protect you and your home from the attacks of the enemy. If you make the Lord your refuge, if you make the Most High your shelter, no evil will conquer you; for He will order His angels to protect you wherever you go.” Psalm 91:9-11

  • KNOW THE WORD OF GOD

Read the Word. Know the Word. Use the Word. The holy Scriptures have all the wisdom you need to take on this world and all of its evil counterparts. Start studying. “All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness,” 2 Timothy 3:16

  • UTILIZE THE MIRACULOUS COUNSEL & POWER OF THE ALMIGHTY FATHER, SON & HOLY SPIRIT

“The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ and the love of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all.” 2 Corinthians 12:14

Need I say more.

As you can see, you have many weapons in your spiritual arsenal. Make sure that you use them all. The authority and power to overcome the attacks of Satan belong only to the followers of Jesus Christ and every true Believer has been called to fight. We are all called for different responsibilities within the Church Body. Nevertheless, we have all been equipped to fight this battle the same. The moment you accepted Jesus as your Lord and Savior, you enlisted in spiritual warfare. Like it or not, you are in this fight to the finish. So, you might as well commit yourself to doing all you can to win.

Allow me to encourage you. In the midst of it all, do not despair for there is good news! Jesus Christ has already achieved the victory. All you have to do is walk it out.

Walk mightily with the Lord and be blessed.

ARE YOU LIVING WITH A CURSE?

blessings-and-curses“I (says the Lord) call Heaven and Earth as witnesses today against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore choose life, that both you and your descendants may live;” Deuteronomy 30:19

THE TRUTH CONCERNING BLESSINGS & CURSES

Child of God, everything you do and say is always subject to God’s law. Even though the consequences of what you do and say may not immediately be seen in the natural, rest assured that everything immediately manifests in the spiritual realm in the former of either a blessing or a curse. We reap God’s blessings when we obey God. We suffer the consequences of God’s curses when we disobey God.

“For those blessed by Him will inherit the land, but those cursed by Him will be cut off.” Psalm 37:22

BLESSINGS

God loves His children and God loves to bless His children. However, God is a righteous, just and Holy God. He cannot violate His own statutes. Even in the light of God’s love for us, conditions He has set before Heaven and earth are still subject to Him and must be met. Therefore, He gives us His word to keep us in line. He tells us, very simply and very clearly, to “seek first His Kingdom and His righteousness and everything we need will be added to us.” (Matthew 6:33)

“Now it shall come to pass, if you diligently obey the voice of the Lord your God, to observe carefully all His Commandments which I command you today, that the Lord your God will set you high above all nations of the Earth. And all these blessings shall come upon you and overtake you, because you obey the voice of the Lord your God.” Deuteronomy 28: 1-2

HAVING BLIND FAITH IN GOD ALSO BRINGS BLESSINGS

God’s blessings also come by way of circumstances that are not always comfortable to us or convenient for us. God will often place trials and tests before us that serve to demonstrate our faith in Him. An example of this is seen in the story of Abraham when God asked him to sacrifice his beloved son, Isaac. Abraham didn’t hesitate to do the ‘hard thing’ for above everything else, he trusted God. Abraham knew, with all his heart, that God loved him so therefore he trusted God. He knew that God requires of us only what is in our best interest. “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord. “Plans to prosper you and not harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11 

What God asked Abraham to do did not have to make sense to him for Abraham knew that God always honors His word. He knew that God had made him a promise that not yet come to past. Abraham may not have understood everything God had asked him to do, but he his blind faith in God didn’t require him to. Abraham did not have to see the circumstance clearly or understand the circumstance clearly for he knew God did. In all things, it pays to know God.

“For we walk by faith and not by sight.” 2 Corinthians 5:6

Below, I have listed some of the blessings, according to Deuteronomy 28, that we can expect to receive when we are obedient and in right relationship with the Lord.

  • Exaltation
  • Fruitfulness
  • Health
  • Prosperity & Success
  • Victory
  • Being the head and not the tail in life
  • Being above and not beneath in life

CURSES

Child of God, many of God’s people suffer unnecessarily. As a Believer, you are just as susceptible to the effects of sin as non-believers. However, the consequences for Believers are far worse. For when you violate God’s Word, not only are you subjectin yourself and others to curses that are associated with this violation, you block the blessings that you, as a child of God, are entitled to. You also put up a barrier between you and God preventing Him from hear and answering your prayers.

“But if you will not obey the voice of the Lord your God or be careful to do all His Commandments and His statutes that I command you today, then all these curses shall come upon you and overtake you. Cursed shall you be in the city and cursed shall you be in the field.” Deuteronomy 28:15

Below, I have listed some of the curses, according to Deuteronomy 28, that can afflict when one is disobedient and falls out of right relationship with the Lord.

  • Humiliation
  • Barrenness
  • Illnesses of all kinds
  • Poverty
  • Perpetual Failure
  • Perpetual Defeat
  • Being the tail and not the head
  • Being beneath and not above

COMMON INDICATIONS OF A CURSE

  • Mental/Emotional Breakdowns
  • Repeated or chronic illnesses (especially those that are generational and/or cannot be diagnosed by doctors.)
  • Female problems: Barrenness, repeat miscarriages, issues with menstruation, problems with female organs
  • Divorce and generational breakdowns of marriages & families
  • Perpetual financial problems
  • Being accident prone
  • A family history of suicides and unnatural deaths

GENERATIONAL CURSES

If sin is allowed to remain in the life of a Believer, God will turn them over to the tormenting, supernatural, demonic power of the curse. If these curses are not broken, according to the conditions set by God, they are passed down from one generation to the other. This is called a generational curse.

Generational curses are family curses. They are the result of sin and rebellion against God.

CAUSES OF GENERATIONAL CURSES

  • Placing other gods before the one and only true God
  • Practicing idolatry – this includes all forms of the occult
  • Disrespecting/dishonoring parents
  • Deceitfulness towards your neighbor
  • Injustice towards the weak or the helpless
  • Participating in illicit or unnatural sex, including incest
  • Cursing God’s chosen ones
  • Anti-Semitism (cursing the Jewish people)
  • Knowing God but choosing to turn from Him to trust in man or self
  • Theft and lying
  • Stinginess towards God
  • Perverting the gospel of Jesus Christ
  • Falsely claiming to be a mouthpiece of God or falsely speaking on behalf of God
  • Making covenants with people who make covenants with false gods, (including affiliations with the demonic, Freemasons, Illuminati, etc.)
  • By bringing anything associated with idolatry or the occult into your house, you also bring on a curse by giving Satan right of access into your life and the lives of others under your authority.

SIGNS OF GENERATIONAL CURSES

  • Confusion/Double Mindedness
  • Depression
  • Family Illnesses & Diseases
  • Baronness, Impotence & Female Problems
  • Family Breakdowns & Divorce
  • Lack, Poverty & Unproductiveness
  • A Yoke of Debt
  • No Ambition, Vision or Direction
  • Bondage & Slavery To Sin

CURSED BY WORDS

Curses can also come by way of spoken words, written words and words spoken inwardly by those who have authority over us. Either through relationship or authoritative position, there is power behind the words that are released in our lives. For example, husbands have authority over their wives and therefore have the power to bless, as well as curse, by their words. Fathers and mothers have authority over their children and therefore have the power to bless, as well as curse, by their words. Churches have authority over their congregation and therefore have the power to bless, as well as curse, by their words. Teachers have authority over their students and they therefore have the power to bless, as well as curse, by their words.

People also have authority over themselves and therefore have the power to self-impose blessings and curses by their own words. Be careful to thoughtfully choose what you say about yourself. Speak forth words that build-up, encourage and bless. By quoting the edifying words of scripture, you speak the words of life over yourself and others. “I shall not die, but live and declare the works of the Lord.” Psalm 118:17

CURSES CAN FOLLOW PHYSICAL OBJECTS

Curses are not only associated with sin and words, they can also be attached to physical objects. Items such as these are forms of idolatry and are often objects of witchcraft.

Anything can be dedicated to evil for demonic purposes such as objects that have had spells cast on them as well as objects used in occult ceremonies. These objects take on dark, demonic entities that carry curses that can gain access to you, and your family, if you take possession of them and allow them into your home.

A PERSONAL EXPERIENCE  WITH EVIL SPIRITS

My husband and I received a ‘gift’ from friends not long ago. The gift was a framed picture of four African American people performing a ballet. After receiving the portrait, I expressed to my husband that I didn’t particularly care for it but I agreed to take possession of it because he expressed an interest in it. After we arrived home, I hung the picture in our master bathroom located inside of our bedroom. Later that afternoon, my husband and I decided to organize our bedroom closet, so he placed a large black plastic bag at the end of our bed and used it to dispose of trash. That evening, after I went to bed, my continued to clean our closet. It was during that time that he saw the ballet picture hanging on the wall and noticed demonic hand signs on the fingers of one of the women in the picture. He then removed the picture from the wall and threw it away in the black plastic bag that sat on the floor at the end of our bed. Later that night, I awoke to a very disturbing vision. I felt a dark presence in the room and when I looked up, there at the foot of our bed (where the black plastic bag had been placed), I saw four familiar spirits manifesting in the form of African Americans. They stood side by side at the foot of my bed smiling at me. I awoke my husband and told him what I had seen. He then explain to me that hours before, he had thrown the ballet picture into the black plastic bag that sat on the floor at the foot of our bed. That morning, my husband removed the picture from the bag and burned it. Afterwards, we anointed and prayed over the entire house. I never saw the spirits again.

HOW TO BE RELEASED FROM THE CURSE

Jesus Christ has redeemed us from the power of the curse however, we must first meet His conditions for us and our families to be delivered from its effects.

  • Identify and repent of all sin you have committed.
  • Repent on behalf of your ancestors before you and the sins they committed that were passed down.
  • Clean house by getting rid of and/or destroying every idolatrous object that carries a curse. This can include music, videos, various forms of decor, art, books, portraits, paintings, religious and ethnic artifacts, curios, collections, etc. Do your research.
  • Renounce your sin, your ancestors sin as well as everything that was in your possession and associated with Satan
  • Forgive yourself and receive God’s forgiveness in Jesus’ name.

PRAYER TO RELEASE YOU FROM THE CURSE

Lord Jesus Christ, I believe You are the son of God and I believe You are the only way to God. I believe You died on the cross for my sins and I believe You rose from the dead and are now ruling at the right hand of Your Father and mine. On the cross, You were made a curse that I might be redeemed from the demonic power of the curse and enter into Your blessings. Lord, I confess all sins that were committed by me as well as by my ancestors and I ask for Your forgiveness. I forgive every person who has ever harmed me. I forgive them as I would have You forgive me. I also forgive myself. I renounce all contact with the occult and idolatry in every form, and I commit myself to getting rid of every object that is associated with them. Now, having received by faith Your forgiveness, by the authority I have in You, I and those who are under my authority are released from every curse that has come upon us. In the name of Jesus I pray. I declare it and I receive it by faith in Your name. Amen.

THE SINNERS’ LAMENT

Last night, I had an awful dream that the end of time had come.

The trumpet had been sounded and life on Earth was done.

An Angel stood one foot on land and another foot on sea.

And as I tried to kneel and pray, a Voice said unto me,

“It’s standing room! No time for woes! It’s much too late to pray!

It’s standing room! It’s time to go! This is God’s great Judgment Day!”

People filled the churches as far as eyes could see.

I heard a cry for mercy then realized it was me.

I saw the Savior then appear as He split the Eastern sky.

There were tears of joy on a Christian’s face yet I saw the sinners cry.

I tried to touch His Holy hand and with one last feeble plea

I cried again, “Have mercy, Lord! Have mercy, Lord, on me!”

I saw a tear come to His eye as He turned my soul away.

I didn’t know Him yesterday, so He knew me not today.

The Earth was burning all around and the world went up in smoke,

And as the flames engulfed me, I thanked God that I awoke.

I got out my bed and on my knees and you should have heard me pray

For in my dream I saw the fate of God’s great Judgement Day.

 

  An excerpt from the testimony of Howard Pittman – author of the book, Placebo.

PROPHETIC DREAM: A WARNING FROM GOD FOR THE LAST DAYS

“Then I heard a loud voice from the temple saying to the seven angels, “Go and pour out the bowls of the wrath of God on the Earth.”” Revelations 16:1

Child of God, be assured that we ARE LIVING IN THE LAST DAYS before the tribulation which is referenced in Revelation, Chapters 16-19.  Take heed to what the Lord has to say…

I feel an urgency in my spirit to repost this dream, and its message, which was given to me on Wednesday, October 26th, 2016 at 2:30 A.M. This dream forewarns of God’s judgement and wrath to come in the last days that will precede the return of Jesus Christ. It also speaks of God’s provision given for His children. Though rough times are surely ahead for all true Christians, be encouraged for God has made a way for those who love Him, follow Him and obey Him.

“And I saw the beast, the kings of the earth, and their armies gathered together to make war against Him who sat on the horse and against His army.” Revelation 19:19

I dreamt that I was walking alone through a vast and desolate land that was barren as far as I could see. I continued to walk when to my left suddenly appeared an army of soldiers on horseback. The army were racing forward with swords drawn as if running into battle. As I looked at the army, the Lord made it known to me that I was seeing the ‘world’s army.’ He also made it known to me that the ‘world’s army’ had control over the people of this world for they feared its power. However, as I looked at the ‘world’s army’, I felt no fear for I am not of this world, and I continued to walk.

And the Armies in Heaven, clothed in fine linen white and clean, followed Him on white horses. Now out of His mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it He should strike the nations. And He Himself will rule them with a rod of iron.” Revelation 19:14-15

Suddenly, to the left of the ‘world’s army’ appeared another Army. This Army was also on horseback racing forward with swords drawn as if running into battle. However, I saw that this Army was different. The Lord made it known to me that this was a spiritual Army – not visible to most in this world – and yet I was able to see them. The Lord made it known to me that this was God’s Army!

Then I saw a few soldiers from the ‘world’s army’ turn their heads to their left to look upon God’s Army, for they could also see. (The enemy and his demons are here in this world and have access to unsaved people. They dwell in the spiritual realm and can recognize that which is also in the spiritual realm.”)  Then they turned their heads away from God’s Army for they had disregard for those Holy things of God.

As I looked upon God’s Army, I began to feel an urgency in my spirit. The Lord then impressed upon me to immediately run to seek shelter and safety for imminent destruction by His hand was sure to come. So I looked to my right and immediately I saw a small building that had not been there before. I was moved to run towards the building as fast as I could. As I approached the building, I was tempted to hesitate for I feared that the door would be locked. Yet, I continued to run towards the building and up the steps towards the front door. I turned the door knob and to my surprise, I found that the door was unlocked. I opened the door and saw people on the ground floor but, I was moved to immediately run up the stairs as fast as I could to the top floor. The moment my feet reach the top floor, I heard a massive explosion. At that moment, it was made known to me that everything outside of that building had been destroyed. As I looked at the people on the ground floor of the building, I saw that many had been gravely injured and some had even been killed. I knew immediately that God had delivered me through it all!

It was then made known to me that God alone had given me the revelation concerning the two armies. It was made known to me that God alone had prompted me to run – and not walk – to seek shelter and safety. It was made known to me that God alone had provided the provision that was not there before. It was made known to me that God alone had opened the locked door. It was made known to me that God alone had guided me to the top of the stairs. It was made known to me that all these things were done for me by God alone.

Then it was made known to me that had I not BELIEVED God’s Word, had I not RECEIVED God’s Word and had I not OBEYED God’s Word, I would NOT have survived.

Child of God, all these things were shown to me and made known to me for my good and for yours. KNOW that Jesus’ return is imminent. KNOW that the days that will precede Him will not be easy. KNOW that those whose lives are not lined up with the Word of God will not survive. Regardless of what you see and hear in this world, KNOW that your truth must be God’s truth. KNOW that EVERYTHING is and always will be in God’s hands. KNOW that your life will depend on your OBEDIENCE.

This message is for those who have eyes to see and ears to hear.

AN ANGELIC VISITATION: “IF ANY MAN COME TO ME…”

The process of being conformed to the image of God’s son, Jesus Christ, and being transformed into His nature is certainly not for everyone.

Following Jesus Christ does not come without many sacrifices made and high costs being paid. Only those who are truly desperate for a deeper, more powerful relationship with God are willing to go through all that is required to weather them, mature them and purify them.

Only those who are willing to allow God to stretch them will encounter what transcends our wildest imagination. Only those will experience the most amazing and rewarding relationship made available to mankind.

Many are not willing to pay the price required to achieve God’s definition of righteousness. The fear of man labeling them a self-righteous, overly religious fanatic is too much for most to bear. Many also fear the supernatural and feel that submerging themselves into the depths of the unknown is far too intimidating.

Mature Christians have discovered that their level of spiritual gain is based on their degree of fleshly loss. We must be willing to die to self and we must be willing to lose all that we believe gives us life here on this Earth to truly live for Jesus Christ. Anything that does not draw you closer to the Lord, draws you further away from Him and keeps you from experiencing the most intimate relationship with God made possible on this side of Heaven.

Child of God, you must know that for you to go deeper with God, you must be willing to reach further beyond the basic Christian requirement of reconciliation with the Father. Allowing God to have His way with you so that He can purge your flesh, your soul and your spirit, will hasten your sanctification. And why do you need to go through this?

In order to progress in your walk with the Lord, God needs to purge your flesh of sin and carnality. He needs to purge your soul so that He can cleanse your mind of unrighteous thoughts and emotions. This includes your stubborn nature and all of your false self-assurances. He needs to purge your spirit of your self-righteousness and your self-sufficiency. All this is necessary for you to be move to a level of spiritual maturity where you can receive the fullness of all God has for you.

The Lord was in the process of purging me of a stronghold that was hindering my spiritual growth, as well as my ministry, at the time that I received the following vision. I would not have believed this about myself if the Lord had not allowed me to have this experience.

In the early part of 2016, I lay in bed one night wide awake for I was restless and could not sleep. My husband, who slept through this entire experience, was laying next to me sound asleep.

in the distance I heard the sound of what I can only describe as a whirlwind. I did not see the whirlwind itself but, I could hear it. As it came closer to me, it’s sound became louder and stronger and intensity. At the same time, I saw a small, bright light appear and grow, widening and spreading, until it consumed my bedroom. I could see nothing around me but a brilliant light. It was brighter than anything I had ever seen. I was not frightened for knew that it had come from the Lord. In fact, I lifted my head up off my pillow and struggled to hear what I hoped would be God’s Voice through the sound of the whirlwind which was getting louder and stronger.

You see, in the summer of 2001, I heard the Lord audibly call out my first name. The night that it happened also found me in bed. When I heard the Lord’s voice, I was frightened. All I could do was cover my head with my bed sheet, and I did not respond. As I lay there, I listened intently waiting to hear something else but, the Lord did not say another word. The next morning after recovering from the shock of the experience  and explaining everything to my husband, I prayed and ask God why He didn’t say more to me. I did not get a response at that time. I came to the conclusion that God did not speak further because I did not respond to Him. So I made a promise to God that if He ever saw fit to speak to me again, I would most definitely respond. 

So as the light in my room  grew brighter and the whirlwind grew stronger, I struggled to listen for the sound of the Lord’s voice hoping that He would speak to me again – however He did not.

The brilliant light in my bedroom consumed everything, and although I could see nothing around me I could still move around as I lay on my back in my bed. Then out of the corner of my right eye I saw a figure. The bodily figure stood to my right and was even brighter than the brilliant light that had consumed my room. As my eyes focused on the form, I saw it lean over and place its arms under my body. Then I felt my body begin to lift up off the bed.

Within a split second, many thoughts began to flood my mind. I was reminded of a prophecy that was spoken over me, also in 2001, by a woman of God who told me that the Lord had spoken to her about me. She said that He had instructed her to anoint my feet for I would walk on Holy Ground. I also had thoughts of my four-year-old grandson growing up without me. I remembered my son whom I have not seen in over 10 years, my two daughters whom I love dearly as well as the lives of my four sisters. Finally, I remembered the plans my husband and I had made for our future.

Then suddenly, a different thought occurred to me. “What if the Lord is taking me away and I am not able to return.” I then thought to myself, “I am not ready.” So I reached out my left hand to feel for my husband, who was laying next to me, and I grabbed his pajamas. Within an instant after grabbing ahold of my husbands pajamas, everything disappeared. The sound of the whirlwind stopped, the brilliant light vanished and the Angelic vision was gone. I immediately woke up my husband and told him everything that had happened.

Later that morning, after praying to God about my experience, the Lord spoke to my spirit. He explained to me that He allowed me to experience the vision so that I could learn a few things about myself. He wanted me to know that He has called me for a work but, until I am willing to break the ties that are binding me, He would not be able to use me to the extent that He desires.

Jesus said, ” If any man come to Me and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yae, and his own life also he cannot be My disciple.” Luke 14:26

Reading and understanding the scripture above in its context, we know that this statement is a metaphor. Jesus, in essence, was saying that we must count the cost of discipleship and be willing to pay it to follow Him. He is also saying that we must also understand that if we desire to be His disciple we must be willing to give up everything for Him. Jesus sacrificed everything He had to give for our salvation. The question He asks His Church is just how much are we willing to give up for Him?

This message is for those who have eyes to see and ears to hear.

PROPHETIC VISION: EVIL SPIRITS & THE CURSED THINGS

Not long ago, my husband and I were at the home of friends of ours and received a ‘gift’ from them. They were moving to another state and thought we might like to have it. This gift was a painting that depicted four African American ballet dancers – three women and a man. Later, on the way home, I expressed to my husband that I didn’t particularly care for the picture. On the other hand however, my husband liked the painting so reluctantly I agreed to keep it. After we arrived home, I decided to hang the painting in a small room near our bedroom. A day or so later, my husband and I decided to organize our master bedroom closet. So he placed a large, black trash bag at the foot of our bed and we both began to dispose of things that we no longer wanted or needed. Later, I went to bed early and left my husband to continue working on our closet.

Later that evening, my husband saw the ballet painting I had hung on the wall in the room that was near our bedroom. Yet, when he looked a little closer, he saw something in the painting that neither of us had noticed before, and what he saw disturbed him. On the hand of one of the women in the painting, he noticed what appeared to be a demonic hand sign – one of many satanic symbols the Lord had only recently revealed to us. He decided to dispose of the painting so without telling me, he threw it away in the large, black trash bag that had been placed at the end of our bed.

At some point in the middle of that night, I awoke but recognized I was in a strange, dream-like state however, I was wide awake. There was a feeling of darkness in the room. The feeling I had was very different from the many dreams and visions I have had from the Lord. My head was on my pillow laying on the right side. I opened my eyes and lifted my head to look forward and there, at the foot of our bed, was a gloomy, almost transparent vision of what appeared to be four African American figures – three women and what may have been a man at the far end. The woman on the far right, who stood directly in front of me at the foot of the bed, smiled at me and appeared to look like a dear cousin  who had died several years earlier – this was a familiar spirit.

I struggled for a moment trying to arouse myself from what I initially thought was a nightmare. After a minute or two, clarity returned to the room and the darkness I could feel left me. The four figures I saw also disappeared. Not sure of what I had just seen, I woke my husband and explained everything to him. He was stunned. After a moment or so, he began to tell me about what he had seen the evening before on the hand of one of the ballet dancers in the painting, and how he had thrown the painting into the large black trash bag that sat at the foot of our bed that sat in the exact location where I saw the four African American figures only moments before. It was then apparent to both of us that the four figures I had seen at the foot of our bed were not people. They were evil spirits disguised as people.

Immediately, my husband got out of bed, took the painting out of the large, black trash bag and went outside into our backyard. There he broke the painting into pieces and burned all of it. Afterwards, together we prayed and asked God for forgiveness for bringing the acursed thing into our home. Then we anointed every room and prayed to bind the enemy, in Jesus’ name, from entering our home again. We never saw the evil spirits again.

In all of this, I give God the glory. For prior to this incident, the Lord had prepared us. He has been revealing to us and teaching us many things concerning spiritual warfare that includes demon possession, cursed and demonically charged objects as well as other forms of spiritual warfare such as cursed forms of entertainment and media of all kinds including demonically-inspired music, television shows, Hollywood movies and even children’s animation.

Child of God, demons and evil spirits are real and it is crucial that you not only keep yourself pure and Holy but also keep your home pure and Holy as well. Be careful what you allow your eyes to see and your ears to hear. And be very careful what you bring into your home, i.e. music, movies, art, etc. Demons attach themselves to whatever and whoever has been demonically cursed. When you expose yourself to these things, you have given the enemy the right to access your life and the lives of your family. Once entry has been gained, the enemy can – and will – use anything and anyone to try and kill, steal and destroy you and yours.

Child of God, if you have not already done so, it is time to clean house!

This message is for those who have eyes to see and ears to hear.

PROPHETIC DREAM: THE VISION OF IMMINENT

The evening of May 12th 2017, the Lord gave me a dream of warning that I entitled The Landlord which was given to me to share with His people. Six days later, on the evening of May 18th, 2017, the Lord gave me yet another dream of warning…

In this dream, God showed me one word: IMMINENT.

IMMINENT means ‘impending,’ ‘about to happen’ and ‘close at hand.’ Though no man knows the day or the hour of Jesus’ return, God is giving us hints. The Lord is giving us more than ample warning that time is winding down and drawing ever so near. No one will have an excuse when their time comes to go before Him for judgment.

Child of God, do not become complacent. Do not allow the talk of Jesus’ return to make you numb. Although God is a loving and patient God, although God is compassionate and slow to anger, God is also an all-consuming fire whose wrath burns hot and furious. It is not man who is telling you, “Jesus is returning soon.” It is God saying to you, the return of Jesus is “imminent”! The return of Jesus is impending! The return of Jesus is about to happen! The return of Jesus is close at hand! Repent! Get your house in order. Dispose of all your trash and debris. Clean your Holy temple where the Holy Spirit resides.

Messages of warnings from the Lord are becoming more and more frequent. Heed the voice of the Lord. God is speaking to you Church. There will come a time when He will cease speaking. When that time comes, He will turn away from those who refuse to listen. He will turn His face from the sinners. All will be lost to them. There will be no hope for them. He will give them over to the hardness of a reprobate mind and see them eternally as godless, rejected, worthless and evil. Scripture tells us of that perilous time when the world will consist primarily of perilous men. In those last days,  “men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power.” And we are warned: “from such people turn away! For of this sort are those who creep into households and make captives of gullible women loaded down with sins, led away by various lusts, always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth… men of corrupt minds, disapproved concerning the faith.”  (2 Timothy 3:1-9)

Do you not know that judgment will begin at the house of God and if it begins with us, woe to those who do not obey the Lord. (1 Peter 4:17)

PROPHETIC DREAM: A WARNING TO GET YOUR HOUSE IN ORDER!

On May 13th, the Lord gave me a dream… God is reaching out to His people in these last days. Messages such as does given through dreams and visions seen by His Prophets, He is preparing and warning the Church body of Jesus’ imminent return.

In this dream, I saw myself managing a multi-family community. In the community, there were many buildings. In each building were two single-story apartments on the left – one on the top-level and the other on the lower-level – and one two-story townhouse on the right. I saw myself going from building to building examining the front doors and the back patios of each apartment and townhouse looking for trash and debris. At those dwellings, I left a notice that included a warning. The warning informed the people who live there that I would be returning soon but on an unspecified date. The warning also informed them that when I returned, I would be imposing a penalty on those choosing to remain in violation. This penalty would include an extremely heavy fine.

Some of the people were obedient and heeded the warning by cleaning up their dwelling place. Some were complacent not thinking it important and did nothing. Others were angry and wanted to know why they couldn’t do exactly what they wanted for it was their life and they felt they should be able to live it exactly the way they chose. I explained to them that they would not live in this place forever. I told them that eventually they would want to move on to an amazing brand New Place. I further explained that when that time came, this New Place would call on me for a reference. The reference I would give them would speak on their behalf. I continued to explain that their compliance in this place will determine the type of reference I gave. I made it clear that at that time, if they received a good reference from me, they would be approved for the New Place and only then would they be able to enter into it. If they received a bad reference on the other hand, they would be rejected and denied entry into the amazing New Place. Furthermore, they would be forced to live in a horrible place that was not fit for any person to live in. I then awoke from this dream.

In this dream, God showed me that I was representing Jesus, the Master Property Manager. The buildings in this dream represented all the places in the world. The apartments and townhouses represented three categories of people. The lower-level apartments represented those who are considered the least in this world. The upper-level apartments represented those who are considered just above the least in this world. The two-story townhouses represented those who have done well in this world. Each dwelling place represented a life and the front doors to each dwelling place represented everything about our life that is visibly seen by others. The back patios at each dwelling place represented everything about our life that we try to hide from others – even though nothing is hidden from God. Jesus has access to it all.

In this dream, it was clear that the Lord is no respecter of persons for it showed everyone being grouped together in one place and expected to live according to the same rules. No one was allowed preferential treatment. Everyone was judged exactly the same. The trash and debris in this dream represented the sin and disobedience in our lives. We know that the penalty for sin and disobedience is death which is, indeed, a heavy price to pay. Only a few will be approved while many will be rejected from entering into the amazing New Place, which is God’s Heavenly Kingdom, for many will reject the Master Property Manager, who is Jesus Christ, and His word. However, these people WILL gain acceptance and entrance into a different place – a horrible place called Hell.

Child of God, are you violating God’s word? Is your life still cluttered with sin and disobedience? Will you receive a good reference from Jesus or a bad one? Will you be approved or rejected from entering into the amazing New Place? Do uou know where you will go when you leave this place?

This message is for those who have eyes to see and ears to hear.

PROPHETIC VISION: THE ‘SHAKING’ & THE WARNING OF EARTHQUAKES TO COME!

“Indeed, the Sovereign Lord never does anything until He reveals His plans to His servants the prophets. The lion has roared – so who isn’t frightened? The Sovereign Lord has spoken – so who can refuse to proclaim His message?” Amos 3:7-8 (NLT)

In 2008, the Lord gave me two open visions. One was felt physically and the other was seen visually. At the close of 2016, the Lord gave me a third.

An open vision is different from a vision. A vision gives you divine revelation by sight but your role is passive in this type of vision. Here, you are only an observer. However, in an open vision your role is more dynamic. Here, you may not only be shown something visually, you actually become a part of the vision as you are able to interact with it. In an open vision, You have the ability to see, smell, hear, taste and feel what is happening around you.

All three open visions were divine revelations from God revealing to me warnings of imminent earthquakes that are coming soon to certain areas of the United States…

OPEN VISION OF THE SHAKING GROUND

In 2008, my husband and I went out to eat at a local restaurant not far from our home. The weather was beautiful that day and nothing was out of the ordinary. As we began to eat, I suddenly felt the ground – in the restaurant – violently shake beneath my feet. Of course, I stopped eating and quickly looked around me to see what was happening. Again, nothing looked out of the ordinary and it appeared to me that no one else had experienced what I had just felt. I then looked at my husband and asked him if he had also felt the ground shaking and he replied that he had not. I excused myself from the table and went to the ladies room. I noticed that I was alone, so I stood there for a moment or two trying to process what had just happened to me. Eventually, I returned to my table and finished my meal. My husband and I then left the restaurant and returned home.

OPEN VISION OF THE WEATHER BROADCAST

A few days later, I had another open vision. What I saw was a full-color scene that had been superimposed over what my natural eyes were actually seeing… I was alone in my living room watching a television program when suddenly what I was seeing changed before my eyes. What appeared to me was an unknown woman announcer and a weather broadcast. It looked as if I was watching the Weather Channel. I saw the woman standing on the left side of the screen with a long, narrow pointing stick in her hand. She was pointing to two columns that were listed on a wall to the right while she warned of eminent earthquakes that were soon to come.

In each column, I saw a list of cities/states that were located all over the United States. I would only be guessing if I tried to recall those cities and states, so I won’t go there. However, I have come to the conclusion that the Lord did not intend for me to remember this information. For if He had, He would have seared them into my memory. At the time that I received this vision, I believe it was given to me for the purpose of warning, preparation and awareness.

Not realizing at the time that what I had seen was a vision, (for my call had not been confirmed yet) I became alarmed and immediately went to ask my husband if he had heard the news about the pending earthquakes. He had no idea what I was talking about. When I returned to the living room to show him what I had seen, the vision of the weather broadcast was gone and the original programming had returned.

I couldn’t believe it. I knew what I had seen and heard so I proceeded to search the television news channels, as well as the Internet, looking for information concerning these earthquakes however, I found nothing. Then, I was immediately reminded of the ‘shaking’ I had experienced only days before in the restaurant. Not understanding any of this at the time, the only thing I could do was pray, journal what I had experienced and ponder it all.

I now fast-forward to today. Only a few months ago, I received yet another vision. Upon closing of my eyes one evening while I lay in bed, I saw a date flash before my eyes. The date revealed to me a spelled out month, a numerical day and a numerical year and then began to violently shake from side to side for just a moment. Then I opened my eyes and it was gone. I was not allowed to remember the exact date I saw. I only remember the experience. Again, I believe all three of these open visions have been revealed to me for the purpose of warning, preparation and awareness. However, now I am being led to inform you.

I believe the Lord is bringing this information back to me to inform me that the time is drawing near. Why is God allowing devastating earthquakes to happen, you may ask? Very simply, it is because of sin in the land. Unless the people repent and cry out to God with sustained change in their hearts, this and even more devastating judgment will come.

I know that not all states will be affected by this earthquake. I have been given dreams about a location that He may be leading me and my family. I am still in prayer about it and I am waiting for His confirmation. I believe there will be places of sanctuary for those who know the Lord and hear His voice. Child of God, I pray that you also seek God concerning this. He will confirm it and guide your actions. I will be in continuous prayer concerning the time-frame of these earthquakes as well as the states these earthquakes are due to hit so that I can warn and prepare His people. Please pray.

Most importantly, I am asking that you repent of your sin and ask for mercy. Again, God is looking for sustained change from His people before He will relent.

In all things, to God be the glory.

GOD IS GOING TO ROCK YOUR WORLD, PART 1: THE SHAKING OF THE HEAVENS, THE EARTH, THE NATIONS, THE CHURCH & THE PEOPLE

“For this is what the Lord of Heaven’s Armies says: In just a little while I will again shake the Heavens and the Earth, the oceans and the dry land. I will shake all the nations,…”  Haggai 2:6-7

ALL CREATION WILL BE SHAKEN

Child of God, look around you. Do you not see the signs and wonders that are appearing in the Heavens and on the Earth, on the land and in the sea, in the Church and within the people? God is shaking ALL things for God’s judgment is nigh and is even now upon us.

Do not be surprised or alarmed for all that is taking place must take place as it was foretold by the Prophets of old. Instead, take notice, heed the warings of God and prepare yourse for the Lord says, “I will shake all things.”

GOD’S JUDGEMENT

Why is God judging the world? Jesus spoke of this before He ascended into Heaven. He said:  “And when He (the Holy Spirit) comes, He will convict the world of its sin, and of God’s righteousness, and of the coming judgement. The world’s sin is that it refuses to believe in Me. Righteous- ness is available because I go to the Father, and you will see Me no more. Judgement will come because the ruler of this world (Satan) has already been judged. ” John 16:8-11

“The Earth suffers for the sins of its people, for they have twisted God’s instructions, violated His laws, and broken His everlasting covenant. Therefore, a curse consumes the Earth. Its people must pay the price for their sin.” Isaiah 24:5-6

Because the people are evil, prideful and disobedient to God, they will be judged. Because the people have ignored God’s righteous statutes and have sinned against God, they will be judged. Because of the wicked hearts of the people, they have corrupted the institution of marriage and family, and they will be judged. Because the people have broken the covenant God made with mankind through the shed blood of Jesus Christ, they will be judged. We see the world and its people progressively deteriorating as they fall deeper and deeper into sin. God is not pleased and His wrath is burning hot. Therefore, the world will be judged.

This great shaking will initiate universal upheaval and change that will ultimately bring about the destruction of “evil rulers, authorities, powers of darkness and spiritual forces in the Heavenly realms.” (see Ephesians 6:12)

ALL WILL BE SHAKEN

“So why do you keep calling Me ‘Lord, Lord!’ when you do not do what I say? I will show you what it’s like when someone comes to Me, listens to My teaching, and then follows it. It is like a person building a house who digs deep and lays the foundation on solid rock. When the floodwaters rise and break against that house, it stands firm because it is well built. But anyone who hears and does not obey is like a person who builds a house right on the ground without a foundation. When the floods sweep down against that house, it will collapse into a heap of ruins.” Luke 6:46-49

The great shaking will affect everything and everyone. It will tear apart marriages, families and relationships. Structures will fall, businesses will fail, governments will crumble, false churches and religious establishments will be wiped away and people everywhere will be measured, weighed and judged. No one will be excluded and it will include Believers and unbelievers alike. Trials, tests and hardships of all kinds will come upon many. Then whoever and whatever CAN be shaken WILL be shaken.

BELIEVERS, BE ENCOURAGED

“He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress; my God, in Him I will trust.” Psalm 91:1-2

Believers of Jesus Christ, be strong and be encouraged. Do not despair. For regardless of what comes or what your eyes may see, remember this: God is, and always will be, in control.

Though you will not be able to avoid the shaking, for everyone must go through it, you can sustain and come through it victoriously. How so, you may ask? Abide in God. Trust in Him and obey Him – no matter what the consequences – and you will endure to the end.

HOW TO RESPOND TO THE SHAKING THAT IS TO COME?

“Joyful are those You discipline, Lord, those You teach with Your instructions. You give them relief from troubled times until a pit is dug to capture the wicked. The Lord will not reject His people; He will not abandon His special possession. Judgment will again be founded on justice, and those with virtuous hearts will pursue it.”  Psalm 94:12-15

Build a firm foundation. Build everything on the foundation of Jesus Christ. Read the Word, hear the Word, know the Word and obey the Word.

Are set apart for God. Remember, you are in the world but you are not of the world. Do not follow and pursue the people and the pleasures of this world.

Stay clean before the Lord. Do not involve yourself in sexual immorality, in drunkenness, in lewdness or in the occult. Beware of false religions and things that have been dedicated to idols for these things have curses attached to them.

Are Pursuing Holiness. God demands that we be Holy because He is Holy. Refrain from sin and make holiness a daily priority in your life.

Repent. If you do sin, repent immediately and make repentance a daily priority in your life.

Pray. 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 tells us: “Always be joyful. Never stop praying. Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus.” Make prayer a daily priority in your life.

Child of God, brace yourself then stand firm on the foundation of Jesus.

PROPHETIC DREAM: THE COMING DESTRUCTION

On Wednesday, October 26, 2016 at 2:30AM, God gave me a message to deliver to His Church. This message came in a dream. Due to the urgency of this message, I am reposting this dream…

Child of God, be assured that surely soon there will come a time of utter destruction. Not only was this dream a warning of this time that is sure to come, it is also a message that demonstrates God’s sovereignty and provision through it all for those he calls HIS OWN. In this dream, God reminds us that He is – and always will be – in control regardless of what we see and what we hear from those who believe they hold the power in this world. Child of God, be encouraged for He promises to protect us and provide for us through it all IF we are mindful to BELIEVE IN HIM, TRUST HIM & OBEY HIS EVERY COMMAND to the very end. I pray that you heed this warning.

In this dream, I was walking alone through a vast and desolate land. The land was barren as far as I could see. As I continued to walk, to my left suddenly appeared an army of soldiers on horseback. They were racing forward with swords drawn as if  running towards a battle. As I looked at the army, the Lord made it known to me that this was the world’s army. He impressed upon me the power and the control that this army represents to the people in this world. I was also made aware of the fear this army has imposed on the people for destruction is rumored to come by its hand. However, when I looked upon this army, I felt no fear or ties to it for I am not of this world, so I continued to walk.

Suddenly, to the left of the world’s army appeared another Army. This Army were also on horseback racing forward with swords drawn as if running into battle. However, I saw that this Army was different for it was an invisible Army. The Lord made it known to me that this was a spiritual army – not one made visible to everyone – and yet I could clearly see this Army. It was made known to me that this was a supernatural Army for this was God’s Army! Then, I saw a few of the soldiers from the world’s army turn to their left and look upon God’s Army for they were also able to see. I was reminded of Satan  and his evil kingdom who temporarily rule this world. Then, the few who could see turned away and dismissed God’s Army for they disregard the Holy things of God.

As I looked upon God’s Army, I immediately felt a quickening in my spirit and a sense of urgency. The Lord impressed upon me to immediately run to seek shelter and safety for destruction was sure to come. True destruction would not come at the hands of the world’s army, but instead  it will come at the hands of God’s Army! It was made known to me that this destruction was imminent and at hand!

As I turned to my right, immediately there appeared a small building that had not been there before. It was impressed upon me to run towards it, so I began to run as fast as I could. As I approached the building, I was tempted to hesitate for I feared that the door to the building would be locked. Still, I continued to run towards the building. I ran up the steps and turned the handle on the door and to my surprise, the door was unlocked so I opened it and went inside. Once inside the building, it was impressed upon me to run quickly up the stairs to the top floor. The moment my feet reached the top I heard a massive explosion. At that moment, it was made known to me that everything outside of that building had been destroyed. As I looked at the people on the lower level of the building, I saw that many had been gravely injured and some had even been killed.

Then, I knew that God had delivered me through it all…

It was impressed upon me that God, alone, had given me the revelation concerning the two armies. It was impressed upon me that God, alone, had prompted me to run , and not walk,  to seek shelter.  It was impressed upon me that God, alone, had delivered the provision that was not seen there before. It was impressed upon me that God, alone, had opened the door that I feared was locked. It was impressed upon me that God, alone, had directed me to quickly run to the very top of the stairs and not remain at the bottom.

Then, it was made known to me that had I not believed all that had been revealed to me in the vision concerning the two armies, I would not have survived. It was made known to me that had I not followed the urging of the Lord to run – and not walk – to seek shelter in the building, I would not have survived. It was made known to me that had I doubted God’s ability to open what I feared to be locked, I would not have survived. It was made known to me that had I not obeyed God’s instructions to run to the top floor and not remain on the bottom – I would not have survived.

After I saw all these things, it was impressed upon me that I am not to fear those who believe they have power in this world, for greater is He that is in me, than he that is in the world.

All these things were made known to me and I was reminded that EVERYTHING is, and always will be, in God’s hands and under God’s control – regardless of what we see with our natural eyes. Child of God, there is no need to worry about all the many obstacles that are placed before us by the enemy. For we have one responsibility that trumps it all: Trust God and obey His every word.

This message is for those who have eyes to see and ears to hear…
