Welcome to my world

I’m so excited about the opportunity to blog. I love good conversation and in a perfect world I’d have a big beautiful porch with rockers and other similar seating, days warmed by sunshine,  iced tea and lemonade for refreshment, and the company of close friends and loved ones where we were all engaged in conversation sharing thoughts, feelings and a lot of laughs.

However, this is not my present reality, much as I’d love it to be, so I find I do the best I can with what I have. While a blog is not a personal two way conversation, it will serve as a good medium wherein I can share my thoughts, feelings and opinions.I hope I am able to write things that are edifying, entertaining or otherwise enjoyable to read. I’d really enjoy positive feedback.

I will also use this forum as a means to share some of the good reads I enjoy. I have a passion for learning and I also enjoy good fiction. Since childhood I’ve been a real mystery buff. Most of my blogging will be on non-fiction, however, as I want to share about some of the good and edifying work that I come across.

With any luck I’ll be able to write something that resonates with you, enough so that you look forward to hearing from me again.

Until then…         Gina Torso shot-crop

of eclipses and volcanos

See the source image

You probably are aware there is to be a mega blood moon on Friday which will be experienced clearly over the middle east continents of this world.

Due to the time difference, those on that part of the world will see it at night while those of us on the American continent will be experiencing blue skies and sunshine in the mid morning hours of the day.

A question I’ve had but didn’t find answers to, is will we (those of us on the America’s) experience any type of eclipse. However, this morning I began listening to a women who does very analytical studies. In this series she just put out pertaining to the blood moon, I learned there is a possibility we may very well experience an eclipse.

I also learned there is a possibility the effects of this lunar eclipse could cause the Yellowstone volcano to blow. We know it’s been showing some activity of late which has the attention of those who understand that, should this volcano blow, it would have devastating effects on this portion of land mass.

So, to back up a bit, some of you are likely familiar with the one and only dream I had for which I spoke with assurance it was a vision from God. I’ve had some interesting and some insightful dreams in my life, but of this dream I have known, without question, it was of God. I have never claimed to know why I was shown what I was shown, and I didn’t fully understand what it was I was being shown.

However, in the span of time since October 8, 2016, which is when I was awakened from my sleep and instructed that I must remember this, upon which the dream was brought to my now conscious mind with distinct clarity, I have been paying attention to both scripture and world events in a desire to better understand what I was shown.

Months after the dream  my studies led me to recognize a correlation between the opening of the 6th seal (from Bible prophecy as given in the book of Revelation). That was a jaw dropping moment that gave me chills, as I recognized the connection.

Some months later, again, I was given reason to believe the “cloud of darkness” I saw just prior to the “bolts of fire” was from an solar eclipse. Thus it was, last year, I was paying close attention when I learned the American continent would experience a total solar eclipse.

Today, in the middle of listening to the series, I paused it to look for photos depicting what a volcano blowing looks like. I specifically wanted to see if in process it caused “bolts of fire” to effectively “rain” down from the sky. I’ve inserted a picture that suggests to me this may very well be so. As we know, this type of natural disaster causes much destruction, which is exactly what I was made to know was the result of the “bolts of fire” that rained from the sky in my dream.

The dream is posted here

If you’ve not already read it, I think you may find it most interesting. For myself, it was amazing to see.

While I am NOT prophesying anything with what I am saying now, I do state I am seeing a good possibility of what could come to pass.

And given all the factors, I see a strong possibility it could happen within the next days to come.

Combined with this, I have been having some personal experiences which lead me to believe the judgments of God are indeed about to rain upon us, just as I was made very aware that what I was shown in that dream were, in fact, judgement of God.

One very important point I understood in my dream was I did not have a spirit of fear. The reason being because I felt the protection of God. Those that put their faith in Jesus Christ need not have a spirit of fear because God has promised that He will protect those that are His.

Thus it is I constantly emphasize the point to get your life right before the Lord; to place your hope and trust in the saving grace of Jesus Christ.

TODAY is the day to do this if you have not already. We absolutely cannot count on tomorrow.

2 Corinthians 6:2

For He says:

I heard you in an acceptable time,
and I helped you in the day of salvation.

Look, now is the acceptable time; now is the day of salvation.

Here is a link to the first of the series I have been listening to:

West Coast EARTHQUAKE

Tags

Okay, so let me try and cut to the chase: can you say EARTHQUAKE on exponential and devastating proportions?!?

I know, I know, I’ve been hearing about “the BIG one” since I was in elementary school, and some of you know that was a VERY LONG TIME AGO, but…..

Something very well may now be afoot, and it’s no joke and it’s not a conspiracy.

For example: “Eleven earthquakes ranging from 2.8 to 5.6 magnitudes were reported off Oregon‘s southern coast Tuesday morning.”

That’s the part they are reporting, but I’m hearing there is more that is not being reported.

This is a long video. It’s current and it sheds a bit of information via a guy who pretty much lives and breaths this stuff, so he does know what is going on:

 

Here’s a much shorter video I was just listening to. I’ve never before listened to this guy (didn’t know about him) but there is something in what he said herein that prompted me to share this information:

 

Here’s the thing: there is a major blood moon coming July 27th, 2018, so in a few days from now. Add to that all the planets have lined up in what I understand to be a unique manner. I’m hearing along with the blood moon Mars will pass extremely close to the earth; an event that is very very rare.

I am wondering just how much all of these events affect the earth. I have a feeling more so than we might realize.

IF, or should I say WHEN this earthquake hits, it is predicted hundreds of people will die.

TODAY is the day of our salvation. TODAY is the day to get right with God. Jesus Christ is “the way” “the truth” and “the life”. It is ONLY thru Him that we have salvation.

John 14:6

Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

If you have not, call upon Jesus Christ now! Get eternally saved today, you may not have a tomorrow.

Today is the day…

Standing waist high in rather swampy water, I noted the water was not a murky green, but instead was an orange red color.

From my viewpoint I saw my son and a girlfriend standing together; to my right of them stood a tall man; however, my son and this young woman’s interaction was limited to between themselves; they seemingly unaware of me or this man.

Next thing my son was standing away in the distance, no longer with this young woman, whom I knew he had been in relationship with.

Making my way over to the young woman I engaged in conversation with her.

The male personage still stood, now off to my left. There was a barrier standing between us and Him, which at the time wasn’t significant and, despite being aware of his presence, there was no attempt to engage with him or vise versa.

I understood this young woman was a virgin and that she was separated from my son and concerned he no longer was a virgin.

I found I was explaining  to her that ALL of us have sinned; no one is free of sin, and there is not a grading scale for degrees of sin. Instead all sin is in opposition of God, and thus separates us from Him.

(Romans 3:23 for all have sinned and come short of the glory of God,)

I attempted to impress upon her to not judge my son, explaining that through Jesus he could be made clean. 

(Hebrews 10:10  By this will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.)

I then went on to state that all of us, all mankind, will stand before God in judgment one day.

(Revelation 20: And I saw the dead, small and great, standing before God, and the books were opened; and another book was opened, which is the Book of Life. And the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.)

However, those of us who believe in, and trust in Jesus Christ: as our Lord, and our Savior, will literally see Him, Jesus, standing between us and the judgment of the Holy Father.

(Romans 10:13 For “whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”)

Quite literally, through the atoning blood of Jesus Christ, we can be made clean; God the Father will see us through Jesus, which is how we are seen as perfect.

(Philippians 3:12 Not that I have already obtained it or have already become perfect, but I press on so that I may lay hold of that for which also I was laid hold of by Christ Jesus.)

(1 Corinthians 3:10 but when the perfect comes, the partial will be done away.)

As I was explaining to this young woman how my son, through faith in Jesus Christ will be made clean again, I very literally “saw”,  in my dream, Jesus standing between my son and the Holy Father.

As I witnessed this I was so strongly impacted by the reality of HIS redeeming love I was overcome with emotion and, literally, wept.

1 John 2:1-2
My dear children, I write this to you so that you will not sin. But if anybody does sin, we have an advocate with the Father—Jesus Christ, the Righteous One. He is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not only for ours but also for the sins of the whole world.

During the week since having this dream I have gained some clarity on it.

Virgin is representative of spiritual purity.

The murky waters represent the sins of mortal life of which we are surrounded and tempted.

This dream is applicable for all of humanity, it is not singularly about my son. I believe the Lord gave me this dream and used a visual of my son because it would serve to strongly impress upon my heart the full impact of the significance of the message.

John 14:6

Jesus answered,“I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

 

Fire in MY veins

, , ,

Yesterday I spent time working on a sewing project for my youngest child. Just before going to bed, I opened up my tablet to see a youtube had just posted by a young women I enjoy listening to.

I enjoy her videos because I trust that what she shares is truth. She is humble, prayerful, and relies on the Holy Spirit for guidance including when she reads scripture.

I do not personally know her, aside from once posting a comment thanking her for what she shares via her videos, I have no communication with her, and I’ve never shared my blog with her.

Thus to have what she spoke confirm three specific experiences; each of which I have complete confidence were made known to me via the Holy Spirit thus are from the Lord; experiences that each are warnings, served rather as both a jaw dropper and to put some fire back into my veins.

What her video did was serve to show me that what I thought were three random warnings are in reality three events that will all come together at the onset of the “great tribulation”: a time that is very nigh at hand.

I had NO IDEA each of these are related–until last night; listen and hear for yourself!

Please take the time to listen to the following video, and then follow the links to important blogs posted.

 

First see: Raining Fire- Further understnding

Then read: The End of the Line?

Of us who live in the USA, this is very important: Judgement coming to America?

May 23, 2018 update. I just came across a fantastic video I highly recommend viewing. Please take time to listen, as the message is well backed up with scripture, thus rendering it, in my opinion, highly reliable, and thus very important.

Wonderland series

The following is some fantastic listening. I highly recommend all of it.

I know I feel fantastic every time I listen to this man; he’s wonderful!

This first part is great:

 

This second is, in my opinion, even better:

 

And if it keeps going in that direction this third part will be best (I’ll know after I watch it, in a moment; in the meantime I’m sharing it in faith because Andy Stanley, IMO, never fails):

 

 

I think it’s really coming!!

The night of October 8, 2016 I was given a powerful dream then awakened and heard the words of instruction: “remember this”, after which I went back to sleep.

The next morning, after many other insignificant dreams all of which I’ve long since forgotten, I awoke to have that particular, technicolor, vivid and powerful dream brought back to mind accompanied by powerful feeling I lack words to properly describe. I felt a pressing on my spirit all day and found no rest until that afternoon, upon feeling impressed to do so, I wrote it down in detail and posted as a blog.

That dream is found here: Raining Fire

The feeling of that dream stayed with me for some time, and I shared with others when I felt led to do so. Initially I was guessing at what the “raining” of fire was. Some months later I, in listening to a series teaching on the book of Revelation, had a jaw dropping moment as I learned about Revelation 6. I had a strong feeling this may be describing what I’d been shown in my dream.

So I posted about that possible connection here: Raining Fire update and revision

I’m not entirely sure, but upon seeing the title of this video:

I was immediately drawn as the first thought that came to my mind was if this is so, then I may very well have been shown some of what will take place shortly.

I do know I spent the better part of a year watching for what I was shown to take place, as I knew, without question, it was from God. As spring has been rolling around, and with current events taking place in the middle east, I have again begun looking, wondering if this will be the spring we will see the events, of my dream, take place.

A little later the title of another video captured my attention, for reasons that may be obvious. In listening, when she spoke of “fire” from the sky, I knew I was going to post a comment on her video as well; she used the very term I used to describe just what I’d seen!!

This past summer I put together three significant experiences in the following blog:

Putting it all together

In a Nutshell

Tags

, , , , ,

Often we have heard the precursor to this, but I believe the following is of equal or perhaps even more importance. THIS is the reason why HE came to earth:

For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son.  (John 3: 17-18)

And I believe it is SO important that each of us get firm on where we stand, because God does not “send” us to Hell, we are already destined for Hell. Jesus Christ came to SAVE us FROM Hell.

God, by way of The Son, Jesus Christ, came to earth, took OUR sin upon Himself, (He a perfect being without sin) and died in our place, so that WE do not have to die for our sins.

Remember, in the garden God warned that those who partook of the fruit of that particular tree would “die”. Well, they DID die, that day!: they died spiritually.

So, each of us are born spiritually “dead”. but, here’s the GOOD NEWS:

Because of the atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ, we can be saved from that eternal death!

THAT, friends, is what Hell is: eternal death!

To be SAVED from eternal death, or Hell, we need to ACCEPT the outstretched hand of Jesus Christ by BELIEVING on Him, believing IN Him, and thus accepting HIM as the LORD and SAVIOR that He is!

 

 

Then, take up our cross and follow Him.

“If you love me, keep my commands.” (John 14:15)

The following link is a good article to define what it means to “take up our cross”: 

https://www.gotquestions.org/take-up-your-cross.html

Jesus Christ IS coming back to earth, soon!

He promised He would return to earth, only this time it will be to gather up all who are true and faithful (both the living and the dead) who will be raised up in incorruptible bodies.

Those who REJECT Him (Jesus Christ) will remain on earth and will be tried by great tribulation:

Matthew 24:21 – For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.

Daniel 12:1 – And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation [even] to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book.

My constant prayer is that those I love and care about will believe on Jesus Christ and be ready for His return.

Remember:

John 3:16-18  For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son.

Tsunami warnings

You know that moment when something seemingly inconsequential suddenly takes on a new meaning; meaning that takes your breath away as you realize the possible implications.

pexels-photo-255268.jpeg

Months ago, possibly 4, maybe more, I had a dream that, at the time, made no sense. Upon waking, with little detail left in my memory, I was perplexed as to why I found I kept reflecting back upon it with what detail I did recall so clear in my mind.

Because the dream seemed basically void of meaning I didn’t blog on it or share it with any enthusiasm beyond a passing statement similar to the following:

I had an odd dream: I dreamt we were camping at a campsite where we were pretty much the only ones there, maybe one or two other campers. I was standing near the door of our trailer looking into the sky when I saw two large (one very large) full moons; one of them was reddish in color. The image is really sticking with me but I don’t know what it could mean.

Fast forward several months when I then had the following dreams as blogged here

pexels-photo-728880.jpeg

At the time I blogged on that Tsunami, and subsequent dreams, I failed to see a correlation to the previous dream, which is why I didn’t include it therein.

This weekend is my and Brian’s anniversary. Some years ago we celebrated our anniversary with a couple nights of winter camping at the Oregon coast. As we have a nice new RV we decided to do the same again this year, this time at a place where just a highway separates us from the beach.

Seemingly oddly, yesterday I found that long ago dream of camping and the two moons came to my mind.

Then this morning I found a message from my daughter informing me of a Tsunami warning for the Oregon Coast; an event that would be triggered an earthquake under the ocean’s surface near Alaska.

One of my first thoughts upon learning this tsunami warning was retracted, is that where this is one earthquake (and it was a big one) there can always be another.

Just minutes ago the following all came together in my mind: dream of camping with two moons and virtually no one else there correlating to camping in winter, a time in which very few people go camping, and doing so in this month wherein we experience two full moons in one month. Add to this the dream of being on a beach and witnessing a massive tsunami wave roaring up and realizing in a moment that we are all going to perish via this catastrophic event.

Hmm…. paranoia or warning?pexels-photo-239107.jpeg … what would you do?

The Special Event

Tags

,

On the third floor of Zions bank in Salt Lake City I stood in the middle of the dealer loans department looking around the ever so familiar place of employment.

As was my usual custom I opted for the stairway over the elevator. After sitting in an office chair for the better part of the day, I’d long since determined it in my best interest to use the stairs morning, noon and evening.

This time rather than finding the customary cleanliness, the stairway had a rather dreary feeling and seemed almost the black and white of long ago TV viewing, prior to color television sets. At each of the landings, as I’d round the corner I spotted a security guard; this was unusual.

Once outside I stood on the sidewalk where I would wait for the bus. This day; a beautiful spring or summer day, offering mild temperatures, blue sky and sunshine, I stood waiting for the bus. Initially the only other person there was my brother, Greg.

In moments, however, we were accompanied by a nice looking man who introduced himself to be the Vice President of the bank.

He proceeded to invite me to be his date to what I understood would be a very elegant, formal dinner event. Showing me a business credit card, he explained that for this date no expense would be spared.

At his query I assured him I had experience to properly navigate the usage of the varied eating utensils, as, for this occasion, I learned this would be needful.

Instinctively, it would seem, I knew I would wear a beautiful evening gown, my nails would be manicured, and my hair would be styled in a beautiful up-do.

While it wasn’t spoken aloud, I was very aware I needed to be conscientious to make all needful preparations in a timely manner so as to be ready on time.

However, next thing I knew, it was almost time to go, and I wasn’t yet ready. I was perplexed as to where time had gone, and very concerned at my lack of proper preparation.

Upon my escorts arrival we attempted to become intimate. I became somewhat frustrated in lack of being able to fully execute that.

Next I stepped into a bathtub to shower, only to discover items I recognized to belong to my brother’s children were cluttering the tub; items such as coloring books, games, and the like.

After spending time emptying these items from the tub, I announced cleared out so that we could now shower.

Then I awoke to the early morning hours of December 8, 2017

Immediately upon waking I understood the clutter in the tub represented “distractions”.

I recognized that these distractions were not “bad” things, but simply things that were serving as clutter preventing me from becoming properly “clean”.

Initially I assumed this dream to be telling me there are distractions in my life; things preventing me from getting clean. After pondering and praying on the matter I am still unsure if this was a warning for me, or if it was for me to share with others. Perhaps it’s a warning for each of us, as during this time we occupy, while waiting on the Lord, we are to keep busy, but at the same time, we need to be mindful that our distractions do not replace our continuous mindfulness of being spiritually clean in anticipation for the coming of the Lord.

In dreaming of attempts to be very intimate was initially very perplexing to me; I felt to dream such a thing, in this circumstance, must be highly inappropriate. However, after praying and pondering on this detail, I remembered in dreams we are unable to articulate emotional intimacy.  So to “see” this intimacy, our mind uses the physical to “see” things emotional.

Once I remembered this, I began to look more closely at my life, to determine if there might be something keeping me from being fully emotionally intimate with the Lord.

As may be evident my belief, my feeling, is that the Vice President in this dream represents the Lord, Jesus Christ.

I believe He is effectively inviting me as His guest to a very special event, which, I believe, represents the wedding supper of the Lamb.

For this honored and sacred event, I want to be spiritually prepared and fully adorned. And I believe this event is coming up soon.

May we each be ready and found worthy to attend.
