TODAY IS… the day for self-examination. “Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts…” Psalm 139:23 KJV We examine the outsides of our bodies in many different ways and for many different reasons. We painstakingly keep an eye on blemishes to see if they change size or shape; women […]
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):
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:
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”:
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.
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.
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.
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
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? … what would you do?
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.
The water was so dark it was practically black, both the water and the sky as I treaded water to keep afloat in the choppy waves. Some distance away I saw numerous other people doing the same. Further away in another direction I saw a couple large ships of which I believe there may have been people aboard.
Then I was on land, an island, and found myself in a very large building which reminded me of a multi-level office type building but separated only by desks and cubicles rather than separate offices. I was surrounded by people, quite possibly those I’d seen while in the water.
The only recollection I have of interaction with anyone was when someone; a person I seemed to know, but can’t recall as being someone I know, who wanted to exit the building to go to somewhere we’d all eventually be heading, but they wanted to go ahead of the others and desired I accompany them.
I argued shouldn’t we wait for the others, but they we insistent on going now, so I went along. As we pushed open the industrial quality French style doors; I opening one, my companion opening the other, strong winds of storm quality whipped with such velocity my company was prevented from being blown away only because of holding on so tightly to the handle of the door.
It was then determined we’d return inside waiting until later to take our leave.
In the midst of all this, I was aware this island was doomed to flood but wondered how this was to take place.
When next standing on the beach amidst the other occupants of this island, as we looked out across the ocean waters, a huge planet, that looked very similar to the moon, suddenly fell from the sky straight into the ocean. Immediately I realized this to be the cause of the impending flood, as a wall of water creating a massive tsunami wave rose up heading straight for us. In my left ear I heard the piercing scream of a fellow occupant and I realized all would die.
Then I awoke from that dream. It was now the morning of Wednesday, Nov 22th, 2017
With the two weeks that have followed I’ve referenced back to that dream in two subsequent dreams. In the first dream to follow that dream, roughly a week later, I dreamt I saw the moon and told someone about the dream I’d had the week earlier. Two nights ago I dreamt I saw both the moon and another planet next to it, and told the person I was with about my previous dream regarding the moon.
Last night I dreamt in reference to the three dreams I’ve had: my dream and the subsequent dreams referencing back to my original dream, and then I heard the words “three times means judgment”.
I’m really not quite sure what to make of all this, except to say I find it very curious and I wish I knew the “what and why” of these dreams.
What I do know is just yesterday I heard someone speaking of Revelation chapter 8, and the speaker explained that a massive tsunami would explain destroying ships.
This immediately grabbed my full attention as in my mind saw, again, as I had in my dream the ships. Until that very moment, yesterday, I hadn’t made much of that particular detail, just that in retelling this dream to family members and close acquaintances, it is a detail I included as it is a detail that was clear to me.
Following is a quote from Revelation 8:8-9 in NKJV
“8 And the second angel sounded and, as it were, a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea; and a third part of the sea became blood;
9 and a third part of the creatures which were in the sea and had life, died, and a third part of the ships were destroyed.”
Who doesn’t know of at least one scary thing about Friday the 13th!
In the 80’s there was a series of horror films bearing that title. I wasn’t a fan, and in fact was really upset when one of my boyfriends took me to the movies on a group date only to find it was a Friday the 13th movie. Walking home wasn’t a good option, so somehow I managed to get through that horrible movie eyes averted for the most of it, and my thoughts elsewhere; not my idea of a good time.
I started into mild labor with my third child on June 13th, but as she was breach position she wasn’t born that day. She wasn’t due for another 10 days, but the next mornings doctor visit found me promptly in hospital for a c-section birth; she was born the morning of the 15th.
I confess I was thankful my grandson was born October 14th; his first birthday being this weekend.
But what the heck can we expect in the next day or so???
The planet Jupiter exits the constellation Virgo the morning of Friday the 13th, 2017. For those who live on the west coast, as I do, this will take place about 10:50 a.m.
But then there is this asteroid 2012 TC4 that will come very close to the earth; about 4000 miles. That might not sound close, but with something of this nature, that is CLOSE!!
But more importantly, in my mind, is the fact this asteroid will pass through bunch of debris of a meteor shower.
When I put together all things, I have a feeling about this. I think we are in for something big.
Bottom line, I hope you have your life in order, and that you are close to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. If not, right now is the time to get there, right now!
I just started watching a youtube wherein I made a mind blowing, very possible, connection to a dream I was given EXACTLY one year prior to when the meteor shower of 2017 is to take place on October 8th.
NO ONE is going to convince me this is mere coincidence if it does indeed turn out there is a connection.
It is just a wait and see to learn if the real event will play out anything like what I saw last year.
I put a lot together in this blog you’ll find here: Putting it all together, but to see what I “saw” on October 8, 2016, you’ll want to go to this link Raining Fire or this link Raining Fire update and revision.
Raining Fire is the the original blog, Raining Fire update includes a connection I made upon learning about Revelation 6 (from the Bible).
You decide for yourself, but I believe our God, the Creator of the Heavens and the Earth, is speaking to us, warning us of HIS coming. He promised He would return, He promised He would make things right, He promised He would destroy the wicked and He would destroy the WICKED ONE (Satan, the author of all evil) and HE, Jesus Christ, our Lord and our Redeemer, our Savior, our Messiah, is COMING!
The Heavens and the Stars, the Sun and the Moon, the catastrophes and world events all are pointing to it, as written/ prophesied in His word; the Holy Writ, the Bible.
Read it, study it out, see it for yourself.
I LONG for His return, I am ready. I am excited. Are YOU?
We’ve all heard it: “Be careful what you wish for”.
Just a few minutes ago I was reading a verse from the book of Revelation (in the Bible) only to become frustrated at not clearly understanding what I was reading; the frustration being mostly due to the varied differences of opinion “out there” which cause division and confusion for those of us trying to understand what to expect in regard to the fulfillment of “end times”.
So a few minutes ago I prayed for enlightenment to my mind, by way of the Holy Spirit, knowing it is by way of the Holy Spirit that we are given knowledge and understanding.
My prayer was for understanding of God’s actual truth from the pages of scripture. I could read and make educated guesses as to the meaning of the words written, just as I believe was done by a women I listened to yesterday, but I don’t want yet another “opinion” of what “it” means; I want to know what GOD is telling us by way of His word.
Since I was in the midst of following listed scripture via a daily devotional I moved along to other listed passages, and it was upon reading from Hebrews I felt compelled to share all of this. The scripture listed was Hebrews 2: 14-15, but I read 2:14-18.
What is written in verse 16 really struck me:
Hebrews 2:14-18 King James Version (KJV)
14 Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil;
15 And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.
16 For verily he took not on him the nature of angels; but he took on him the seed of Abraham.
17 Wherefore in all things it behoved him to be made like unto his brethren, that he might be a merciful and faithful high priest in things pertaining to God, to make reconciliation for the sins of the people.
18 For in that he himself hath suffered being tempted, he is able to succour them that are tempted.
I realized, while reading verse 16, that we human beings are not the same as Angels.
I was of the impression Angels were basically the same creation as humans, and while I didn’t (and still don’t) believe the following, I’m aware a lot of people do believe when a loved one dies he or she becomes an Angel.
Scripture does not support this idea, thus I am confident we do not, and will not, become Angels, ever. My understanding is Angels are a different creation and Angels are NOT below/lower than humanity in status. (I was taught as a kid that if I didn’t acquire a certain status in mortality I’d be effectively “demoted” to the status of an Angel”. )
Along with the realization, as indicated in the above quoted scripture, Angels are not the same as human beings (the seed of Adam), I also see, in this passage of scripture, that Jesus “TOOK ON” the nature of a human being, i.e. the “seed of Abraham”.
And, He became human by way of choice. He did this so as to be able to become the sacrifice needed to redeem human kind; an act needful to save us all from eternal death. Thru one man, Adam, we all become subjected to death.
Thru Jesus Christ we can be freed of the chains of death.
No other human being could be the needful sacrifice for sin because we are all born of sin nature as we, all of us, are from the seed of Adam.
Romans 5:12King James Version (KJV)
12 Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:
Jesus, through being born of Mary, was able to take on the nature of humanity, but because He is also a part of God, (The Father, The Son, The Holy Spirit), He, unlike all of us in humanity, was able to live a life free of any sin. Thus it is He was able to be the sacrifice for sin- which was achieved by allowing His blood to be shed for sin.
Romans 5:19 King James Version (KJV)
19 For as by one man’s disobedience [Adam] many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one [Jesus Christ] shall many be made righteous. *
*Italics are my insertion for clarification
Through Jesus Christ we can be saved if we accept His sacrifice for us. Believe on Jesus Christ and be saved.
Romans 5:12-21 King James Version (KJV)
12 Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:
13 (For until the law sin was in the world: but sin is not imputed when there is no law.
14 Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over them that had not sinned after the similitude of Adam’s transgression, who is the figure of him that was to come.
15 But not as the offence, so also is the free gift. For if through the offence of one many be dead, much more the grace of God, and the gift by grace, which is by one man, Jesus Christ, hath abounded unto many.
16 And not as it was by one that sinned, so is the gift: for the judgment was by one to condemnation, but the free gift is of many offences unto justification.
17 For if by one man’s offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.)
18 Therefore as by the offence of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life.
19 For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous.
20 Moreover the law entered, that the offence might abound. But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound:
21 That as sin hath reigned unto death, even so might grace reign through righteousness unto eternal life by Jesus Christ our Lord.
