“Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. In my Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also. And where I go you know, and the way you know. Thomas said to Him, Lord, we do not know where You are going, and how can you know the way? Jesus said to him, I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.” (Jn. 14:1-6)
Many years ago in a dream, I found myself in a field somewhere on a beautiful sunny day. I remember feeling light, a feeling one gets when walking in nature. This field looked like it could have been a place somewhere on earth but this was different, it was not earth. I looked ahead of me and saw a quaint white house with a white veranda. On the veranda stood a man dressed in a long white robe with his hands resting on the veranda patio rails. It was obvious that he was waiting for someone. He looked familiar – as though I knew him. Suddenly I recognized that this was Jesus! And that it was me He was waiting for! I remember feeling profoundly blessed and so privileged to be in His company. Before the dream ended, I found myself standing amidst beautiful and vibrant flowers of all colors. I noticed that they surrounded the white house. This was one of those beautiful dreams I wished I never had to wake up from.
This dream conveyed what awaits faithful Believers on the other side of eternity. The beautiful new home was the heavenly dwelling Jesus had prepared for me, as confirmed in Holy Writ. And homes He has prepared uniquely for all faithful Believers. That it was built and finished in white symbolizes that it is a place where only righteousness exists. In retrospect this morning, I now remember that this dream was shown at a particular troubling time. Keeping in mind that I had very little knowledge of scriptures at that time, it is now understood that the Holy Spirit was confirming the Word and comforting me from out of space and time.
“But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I (Jesus Christ) have said unto you. “ (Jn.14:26)
Flowers – depending on what context they are shown – symbolize different meanings. Early this morning while thinking about them, the following Words of Knowledge were spoken: UNIQUE and VALUE. Something of value in this world is usually esteemed in monetary substance or materiality. But over there, in dimensions of Light, these valuable flowers of beauty symbolized the Believer’s fragrant prayers and works of righteousness, truth and love. Unique, colorful works of the heart! Works that have been seeded in the Word, watered by inspiration of the Holy Spirit and have been given Light by the Sun of Righteousness.
If you are going through troubling times, bring to remembrance that this earth life and all its materiality is temporal at best. It will one day pass. But what an awesome opportunity time now affords us to cultivate a heavenly garden that will far surpass the riches of this world. A garden that will uniquely reflect you and your works. All of which will blossom over there in the most exquisite, aromatic and beautiful flowers not seen on earth. You might not always see your works blossom here. But do not become discouraged and impatient nor feel heavy (spoken word) because they will assuredly blossom! If not here now, then over there for sure! In that place of rest and Light where burdens will be permanently lifted. In that place where the works of your heart will blossom in a different environment and for a specific purpose which the human mind has yet to comprehend.
The name “Robin” or “Robyn” has just been spoken. Perhaps something in this message is for you today. Wherever in the world you are; persevere, let go of anxiety, be blessed, keep the Faith….(Reflective verses: Matthew 6:25-34)
“Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal; but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” (Mat. 6:19-21)
“Here is the patience of the saints; here are those who keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus. Then I heard a voice from heaven saying to me (Apostle John) Write: Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on, Yes, says the Spirit, that they may rest from their labors, and their works follow them.” (Rev.14:12-13)
Keep the Faith,
