Our Father’s House

Many Doors/Many Rooms

Today I am sharing a significant dream from someone who found herself on the third floor of an unusual building. She began looking around and saw numerous doors with accompanying hallways. Curiously, she opened one door which revealed a room that looked more like a residence. Clearly, construction was underway and progressing. There was a knowing at that moment that all the others doors were composed of similar spaces and all were under construction. There was also a knowing that construction was being carried out by a skilled Contractor by the name of Michael whose employer is a benevolent Landlord. Next, she saw people standing in a laundry room on the lower floor. End of dream.

Connecting the Dots: Third Floor/Third Heaven

In helping to interpret the dream it was immediately recognized that it related, in symbolic terms, to the following verses:

“Let not your heart be troubled: ye 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 unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also. And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.” (Jn. 14:1-4)

Mansions according to Strongs #3448 means: Lodging, dwelling-place, room, abode, mansion. From meno; a staying, i.e. residence.

This is where it gets interesting. Being on the third floor confirms Paul’s declaration about the existence of a third heaven:

I knew a man (most likely Paul himself who would humbly not admit to it, coupled with the risk of being buffeted by Satan’s messenger) in Christ above fourteen years ago whether in the body I cannot tell or whether out of the body, I cannot tell. God knows. such a one *caught up* to the third Heaven.” (2 Cor. 12:2)

The Landlord and the Contractor

The Landlord’s name, among other things, means “stone” or in this case “Rock”. Put together, the LandLORD is symbolic of the Rock who is Jesus Christ our Lord. (1 Cor. 10:4). The Lord who will, at a specific time, turn over the earthly kingdom to His FATHER the parabolic Householder during a fruit harvest. (Mt. 21:33-44; 1 Cor. 15:24) And yet, the dream appears to convey that the dwelling places He is preparing for us involves a symbiotic working relationship between Him and the Archangel Michael. Admittedly, the Bible does not teach this about Michael. It highlights him as one who is assigned over Israel and one who battles the Serpent in the heavenly realms. Nonetheless, it would make scriptural sense that Michael is involved in this cosmic project considering that the retaliating serpent is being forcefully ejected out of the present heaven and into the lower realms which includes planet earth. With that in mind, it can be said that the renovations and restorations are symbolic of the new heaven that is presently under construction in preparation to accommodate ‘caught up’ and prepared Believers fit to dwell in our Father’s house where there are many dwelling places.

And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. And I heard a loud voice saying in Heaven , Now is come Salvation, and Strength and the Kingdom of our God, and the power of His Christ for the accuser of our Brethren is cast down which accused them before our God day and night. And they overcame him by the Blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony and they loved not their lives unto the death. Therefore rejoice, you Heavens, and you who dwell in them. Woe to the inhabitants of the earth and of the Sea! for the Devil is come down unto you having great wrath because he knows that he has but a short time. ” (Rev. 12:9-12)

Scriptures additionally teach that Jesus Christ will return with the powerful voice of ‘the Archangel’ during a fateful time when prepared Believers will be “caught up” with the Lord in the air. (1 Thess. 4:16-17) That this Archangel is Michael (whose name means ‘He who is like GOD’) would appear to fit the latter-day scenario. Being ‘caught up’ is a term commonly known as the Rapture or Harpazo. And because the New Testament was translated from the Greek, Harpazo means to: “Catch up, take by force , catch away, pluck, catch, pull.”

And Now What?

Dear Reader, the Bible teaches that GOD sometimes seals HIS instructions in dreams and the Bible is not a fictitious book of fables. Far from it – it outlines the complete plan of redemption from start to finish. I am highly encouraging you to get into the Word and not to put off until tomorrow what needs doing today. The dwelling places are being prepared fresh and new. Praise the Lord – so exciting! And the laundry room on the lower level (earth) conveyed the essential requirement of having clean garments, without spot nor wrinkle, fit to be worn by the faithful who will dwell in those new high heavenly places. (Eph. 5:27)

Many of you are tired, perhaps are even bored, of hearing about repentance. And yet if you haven’t done so – or have fallen back – it is not sufficient to say: “I believe” and remain lackadaisical. Being lukewarm poses a catastrophic risk. (Rev. 3:16) It is critically essential that you come to the Lord of mercy and love in complete repentance (turn from all sins), be immersed in His righteousness and follow His complete plan of salvation and sanctification made available only through His ultimate sacrifice. The essence of the dream is to discourage you from becoming weary as you wait and to encourage you to be – and to remain – prepared. It also stresses the importance of persevering until that glorious event and time when your new dwelling place will be ready to accommodate you. You know the way, follow the Lamb! Praise the Lord. Thank you Jesus Christ.

“And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.” (Rev. 21:1)

Two Super Men

Credit: PxFuel

Last week I experienced a vision in a dream.  From an aerial view, I was looking down below and out ahead into the distance. Two men dressed like superheroes and wearing bright red capes were shown flying towards people down below.  They were flying side by side in unison.

Sensing that this was a significant dream, I waited for a confirmation which came today during study.  The key to understanding their identity, I knew, was in their capes – their red mantles.  I prayerfully inquired what these capes represented when suddenly a Word of Knowledge was spoken: “Lust”. 

The Word “Lust has two meanings.  1) sexual desire – especially strong if uncontrolled  and 2)  a strong longing – a craving which is a strong desire for something.

Seeing this vision from above the entire scene symbolizes seeing in the Spirit. Initially, I thought I was being shown in symbolic form the Two Witnesses of Revelation.  But it soon became apparent that these two “super men” were, instead, two counterfeits. As will be the case with the Two Witnesses, both will also have supernatural powers. (Rev. 19:20) Most likely they are the latter-day Antichrist and False Prophet who are empowered by and covered with Satan’s mantle – the fallen prince of the power of the air. And one whose modus operandi, craving, desire or lust is to advance his dark kingdom among the people on earth:

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against a spiritual wickedness in high places.” (Eph. 6:12)

“As for you, you were dead in your transgressions and sins, in which you used to live when you followed the ways of this world and of the ruler of the kingdom of the air, the spirit who is now at work in those who are disobedient.” (Eph 2:1-2)

“For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only he who now restrains will do so until he is taken out of the way. Then that lawless one will be revealed whom the Lord will slay with the breath of His mouth and bring to an end by the appearance of His coming; that is, the one whose coming is in accord with the activity of Satan, with all power and signs and false wonders, and with all the deception of wickedness for those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth so as to be saved. For this reason God will send upon them a deluding influence so that they will believe what is false, in order that they all may be judged who did not believe the truth, but took pleasure in wickedness.

Because these two counterfeits were flying closely toward the people below and because I saw the scene as being “ahead”, the dream could be signaling their imminent appearance in ways never previously witnessed on earth. Those on earth who are not aligned and not living within the tenets of GOD’S truth and who are not under the wings of the New Covenant will lack discernment and be deceived by this spirit of unholiness – as is already the case. They will believe the delusion, the lie! Scriptures tell us that even the elect will be at risk of deception. Discern.

Keep the Faith, always.

Job’s Struggles

A couple of weeks ago I had a dream which begs to be shared for the benefit of someone whose identity is concealed and one who, I sense strongly, is reading here.

In this dream I see a man at the bottom of a stairway. He is attempting to make his way up but he is having great difficulty. There are others standing at the top of this stairway who seem to be waiting. That is when I noticed he had what appeared to be ash on the top – the crown – of his head.  As the dream ends, I heard the words “He gives He takes” (pause) “He gives He takes.”  After the dream, a Word of Knowledge was spoken which conveys this man is “struggling” to go up this stairway which symbolizes a higher place in the Lord and ultimately heaven at the time of glorification.  

In brief, you might feel as though you have lost or that you are about to lose everything. The ash on the crown of your head is telling because it represents mourning for whatever might be happening in your life. And though the struggle to get to the top of the stairway is very difficult at this time, I am hearing Words of Knowledge that a distraught and suffering Job had lamentably declared eons past. Symbolically speaking, Job’s story also symbolizes missed opportunities, great loss, illness (and perhaps, in this case, even non-repented sinful entanglements or behaviors that keep a soul from effectively walking up the stairway).

“And (Job) said, Naked came I out of my mother’s womb, and naked shall I return thither: the Lord gave, and the Lord hath taken away; blessed be the name of the Lord.” (Job 1:21)   

Whatever your struggle/s, bring to remembrance that it is in persevering through the difficulties while worshiping and blessing the name of the Lord that Job was restored and recompensed many times over what he previously lost.  In Job you will recognize the sanctification of a saint amidst the assaults of powers and principalities to test your mettle.

“The Spirit of the Lord God is upon Me, Because the Lord has anointed Me to preach good tidings to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound. To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord, and the day of vengeance of our God. To comfort all who mourn. To console those who mourn in Zion. To give them beauty for ashes (some versions in Holy Writ describe this sentence as a ‘crown’ of beauty for ashes) the oil of joy for mourning, The garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; That they may be called trees of righteousness, The planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified.” (Is. 61:1-3)

Be strong and of good courage until the ashes of this purifying fire are replaced with the oil of gladness! Follow scriptural directives, repent if there needs to be repentance, *follow the way the Lord has paved through His finished works* and be greatly recompensed as Job had been. To say the very least, this is not an easy journey but an extremely rewarding one! Most importantly, rejoice in knowing that you will be found ready and worthy like those at the top of the stairs who were also prepared in like manner for the time of glorification! The precious Holy Spirit is stepping out of space and time to get this comforting and “valuable” message to you, I pray that you – whoever you are – will receive and be blessed by it.

Praise GOD and thank you Jesus – Blessed be the Name of the Lord. GOD’S mercy is far reaching!

Keep the Faith, Trust the Lord.

Lost and Found

It is written that the Holy Spirit brings all things to our remembrance. This took place yesterday when a dream from 9 months’ ago entitled “People Lost at Sea” was brought back to mind. It fits so well in meaning with the dream “Underground Harvest” that I am moved to post both messages with appended links.

The Woman in white who drifted ashore from the sea symbolize some in the Church body who will make it out of the satanic turbulent waters and who will form part of the great latter day harvest. Significantly, human birth follows 9 months of gestation. The timing of these dreams are significant because it symbolically means that those who have drifted to shore will finally rest, recover and be restored in the newness of the spiritual birth. (Jn. 3:1-21) It’s often said that GOD’S delays are not HIS denials; hence the importance of continued faith in the finished works of Jesus Christ and patience in all things.

“In your patience possess ye your soul”.  (Lk. 21:19)

Underground Harvest

I have been guided to revisit this post:

Credit: Pxfuel

Two days ago In a dream, I heard a sound and felt strong vibrations. My senses were heightened and the dream appeared like it was unfolding in real time. Next, I am hovering over the ocean and I am observing something being dragged out from the bottom.  The sound became louder. Suddenly, a helicopter powerfully bolted out from under the water and deposited something onto a large dock.  And there on the dock standing straight up were bundles of wheat!  Some stalks were tall, some stalks were medium in size and others were shorter. I curiously wondered how wheat could have become stuck on the ocean floor. And as though my question was being addressed, the dream continued. Next, I find myself standing underground (somewhere in or under the sea) looking inside a chamber that contained something dark. I peeked through the door and saw a dark herculean-sized serpent. As though protected by Divine Providence, I felt no fear. My answer was shown and the scene confirmed what was known all along.  End of dream.

Helicopters, unlike planes, conduct more specialized assignments.  Among other functions, they are used in the military and for search and rescue missions. Unlike planes they have a minimal of two revolving blades positioned at the top. From a biblical perspective, they represent the sharp double-edged Sword and living Word of GOD operating in the spirit realm (Heb. 4:12). And this was the sound I recognized and heard in the Spirit.

Briefly, these helicopters emblematically represent the angels who fulfill GOD’S Word. (Ps. 103:20-21) They also point to spirit-filled ministries and witnesses who work in synergy with the angels during the final harvest. From a biblical perspective, the sea represents the fallen prostituted system of this present world, led by corrupted governmental and religious leaders and populated by people from all nations. (Rev. 17:15; Ps 2) From these nations, Believers symbolized as wheat are being harvested during the end times to populate the New Kingdom. And despite being in close proximity to the Serpent’s influence, they continued to persevere in the faith and have reached different levels of spiritual maturation (different size of wheat stalks).

This is yet another dream pointing to these latter days. Spirit-filled ministries, witnesses and angelic hosts are busy in the harvest fields which will eventually coincide with the coming great and dreadful day of the Lord. The battle for souls will become even more fierce in coming days because the angered and worried Serpent knows his time is drawing short. Yet, at the time of this dream he was shown as being temporarily sequestered (in a chamber); most likely until the angels complete their assignments and GOD’S plan is fulfilled up to a specific time. His influence, although presently very strong, is nonetheless still limited. But as the Word teaches, he will be released from his contained quarters. And having even greater wrath, all of hades will break loose with him – it will be an unprecedented time of evil and of upheaval on planet earth. But as the learned faithful know, it will also herald a coming time when the Lord will make His supreme appearance as the Lion of Judah. Then He will destroy the wicked with the breathing Sword of His mouth and the unfathomable brightness of His glory: His glorious countenance. (2 Thess. 2:8)

We are still living in days when many can become heirs of the New Kingdom. And it makes sense that GOD has put a merciful pause on ‘time’ so that all who are being called will hear and be converted. Nonetheless, time runs….

Keep the Faith. Always!

Spiritually-Ailing Leaders

The Spirit of God has made me,
And the breath of the Almighty gives me life. (Elihu in Job 33:4
)

I had an unusual dream on Canada Day.  In this dream, I walked in a hospital room and saw a Leader of a nation in bed.  He was critically ill.  Again, I saw him a second time – nurses and doctors surrounded and tended to him.  It was very apparent that he needed life support.

This dream calls for attention because it was experienced twice. And it is not to be interpreted in the natural because it is spiritual in nature, That is to say that the life support this Leader criticallly needed was symbolic of GOD’s spiritual breath of Life.   The doctors and nurses that surrounded him represented Christians who, although they strongly do not support this man’s policies and agenda, still recognized the importance of praying for him. 

I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth. For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.”  (1 Tim. 2:1-5)

GOD so loved the world that HE sent Jesus to save all mankind.  It behooves us, then, to also pray for our Leaders’ salvation.  To pray that they will receive the true Light that gives life, abundant life and life eternal! That their eyes, ears, hearts and minds can be opened to GOD’s Will.  That HIS Light of truth (the Holy Spirit) will show them the errors of their ways, so that they will make the right decisions, so that they will be great men of GOD.

With GOD all things are possible!

A blessed belated Canada Day and 4th of July Day!

Keep the Faith,

A Form of Godliness

A couple of weeks’ ago in a dream I saw a large and bottomless crevasse.  In the far distance a dark chariot, with a single rider and single horse, was descending from a higher elevation terrain on the left side.  It was obvious that his destination was to cross over this abyss and get on the right side of the crevasse.  Something he could easily do as this chariot could float through the air.

Two days later, the scene was shown again in a dream. But this time I saw a woman dressed in a short white dress with many dark spots standing on the right side of this bottomless crevasse.  Suddenly, she willingly jumps into it!  When I awoke the words  “The World” were spoken.

INTERPRETATION:

The dark rider symbolized the fallen “prince of the air”. It is also he who is biblically identified as “going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it.” (Job 2:2 KJV) The Woman dressed in white and imprinted with many dark spots is the unredeemed church who is influenced and marked by the dark rider. These are Believers who having a form of godliness are denying the power thereof. (2 Tim.3:5-7) The deep crevasse she consequently falls into is “The World”.   A fallen world that is void of GOD’s Holy Spirit, guidance and protection.

The intent of this posting is to encourage Believers to be aware of the subtle and even overt manipulations of the fallen prince.  It is to encourage the fallen church that is captivated by the world to return to its First Love. It is to encourage Believers to live their lives based on the finished works of the Lord Jesus Christ.  It is GOD’s infallible plan of redemption!  We are witnessing a time of great reset and a time of great delusion. It is a time when dark powers and principalities are working intensely through political and religious systems.  A time of legal immorality.  A time for Believers to make haste carefully!

Wherein in times past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience. All of us also lived among them at one time, gratifying the cravings of our flesh[and following its desires and thoughts. Like the rest, we were by nature deserving of wrath. But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved. And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, in order that in the coming ages he might show the incomparable riches of his grace, expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus.  For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God—  not by works, so that no one can boast.  For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. (Eph. 2:2-10)

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”  (Jn.3:16)

Through a Glass Darkly

But the path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day.” (Prov. 4:18)

DREAM – About 1994

A woman dressed in a long white robe is walking barefoot in the desert at nighttime.  The sand dunes around her are visible. She looks familiar but also looks unusual.  Radiance emanates from her face, arms and feet as though a light is shining inside of her.   I look down and see that she is walking on swirls of deep red-colored sand.  The dream is so vivid that each grain of sand is magnified.  There is a soft wind blowing through her hair; I can feel the gentle warm wind. There is a sound but it is difficult to explain: it is a sound of silence.  She has a flashlight in her right hand and uses this light to find her way in the desert.  I look ahead and suddenly a very bright pin point of light appears from way above in the dark night sky.  As it approaches, it casts a large triangle-like effect of Light in the desert.  At that point, it illuminates the desert like the sun at noon day.  I am thinking, she will no longer need the flashlight.  End of Dream

INTERPRETATION:

The woman represents the redeemed blood-bought Church who is walking through the wilderness of the earth plane.  The flashlight that guides her in the desert represents the Word of GOD which also includes spiritual gifts. The bright glow that emanated from her is the true Light. It is the First Light – the indwelling Christ – which illuminates the redeemed of this world from within. (Jn. 1:1-9) This is the Light that was present at the beginning and the Light that will be present again at the end of the old age to fulfill GOD’s masterplan.  It was the Light that divided the darkness at the beginning and it will be the Light that will divide the darkness in the end. Indeed, the first shall be last and the last shall be first!  This is understood when considering that the Holy Spirit of GOD who regenerates the Church had always been and will always be – from beginning to end – with Jesus Christ. This dream previewed a complete cycle of redemption from within and without for the Church.

How this will exactly play out, I cannot say.  But this I know, His Light is coming in a way we have yet to fathom with out intellectual minds.  The Lord’s Light will illuminate the outside for those who are lit on the inside.  On that day of perfection, His Light will shine so intensely bright that it will illuminate the darkness that has beset the Church for too long.  No longer will spiritual gifts be needed for edification because darkness will have been obliterated. The woman will be experiencing wonders in the desert – in the wilderness of the earth plane – that is beyond human comprehension to presently explain.  But on that day of perfection – and of wrath for others – we will comprehend! And godly Love will be the order of the new day.

Charity (love) never fails but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues they shall cease whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away. For we know in part, and we prophesy in part. But *when that which is perfect is come* then that which is in part shall be done away.  When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child:  But when I became a man, I put away childish things. For now we see through a glass darkly: but when face to face now I know in part but then shall I know even as also I am known. And now abides faith, hope, charity (love) these three but the greatest of these is love. (1Cor. 13:8-13)

Walk on the Rock

And Peter answered Him and said, “Lord, if it is You, command me to come to You on the water.” So He said, “Come.” And when Peter had come down out of the boat, he walked on the water to go to Jesus.  But when he saw that the wind was boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink he cried out, saying, “Lord, save me!” And immediately Jesus stretched out His hand and caught him, and said to him, “O you of little faith, why did you doubt?”  And when they got into the boat, the wind ceased.” (Mat. 14:28-31)

DREAM:

Suddenly, during a deep sleep, I found myself standing somewhere and beside something made of wood which was recognized to be part of a boat.  It was dark and stormy outside and I was surrounded by water which was churning with the waves. My attention was brought to my feet and that is when I saw that I was barefoot and standing on water!  Surprised and totally amazed, I lingered there for what must have been a few minutes with water swishing and splashing around my feet. This dream felt so, so real. As I proceeded to walk; something very hard was felt underneath my feet. And that is when I saw that I was also walking on solid rock. I was walking on a massive bed of rock that was just a couple of inches beneath the surface of the water.  End of Dream

INTERPRETATION:

This dream from more than twenty years ago occurred during a difficult period of time in my life.  And though this is a big world and we are all interspersed at its four corners, the Holy Spirit is reminding me that this dream does not belong only for my encouragement and benefit but also for anyone else who is experiencing difficulties of any kind.

Whatever your situation or condition, you are called to exercise faith and go beyond the troubling waters of affliction by securing your feet – your faith, your walk and direction in life – on that solid Rock which is Christ Jesus. (1 Cor. 10:4) Whatever you are feeling: depression, loneliness, fear and worry, (I am hearing anxiety), you are called to stand and walk on the Rock!  If you are experiencing a breakdown in your marriage and family, walk on the Rock!  If you are having difficulty finding work or work is causing you grief and stress, walk on the Rock!  If you are sick and with pain and feeling hopelessly defeated, walk on the Rock!  If you are bound to drugs and alcohol, you are called to walk on the Rock!  Whatever your condition and situation, you are called to walk on the Rock!   Cast your cares on Him, He’s got this! (Mat. 11:28-30)

When Jesus called Peter to walk on water, He was also attempting to test him, to equip him and temper him with courage and faith to confront the hardships that he would endure as a faithful Apostle.  But this dream also conveys that whenever we confront the storms of life, Jesus Christ the Rock is already supporting us.  But we must have faith and belief! If you feel you have sunken in these waters and feel unable to get out, do not doubt, extend your hand and He will pull you out!

Go beyond the pain, go beyond the impossible with faith and belief!  How extremely blessed we are to have One who made this all possible for us!  Thank you GOD our FATHER, thank you Lord God Jesus Christ.

Be of strong courage and keep the faith,

Suzanne

Petra

Then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains….(Mat. 24:16-20)

In this dream – from @ the year 2000 – I was standing in a rocky room or stone chamber higher up somewhere. There was a knowing that there were many other chambers like this.  Rooms or chambers that had been carved in what appeared to be a rock of a pinkish beige color.  I looked out in the distance and saw a long winding dusty road.  On this road an army of soldiers dressed in Roman regalia were walking in unison, shoulder to shoulder and in rows.  They appeared to be heading in our direction. End of dream.  

INTERPRETATION:

The soldiers represented the army of the Roman Empire. It was an empire historically known for its persecution of Christians.  In 64 AD, a colossal fire broke out in Rome and destroyed much of the city.  There were rumours that it was the deranged Emperor Nero Himself who caused the fire. Some historians believe that in an attempt to deflect blame, he horrifically tortured and killed the scapegoats: the Christians. During the third century, the turn-over of emperors was rapid and countless more met with horrific deaths. The crimson stains of Christian blood stained the sands of gladiator arenas much to the delight of roman emperors and their spectators.  Apart from them, Christians were also targeted in the crosshairs of religious authorities.  And apart from them, Christians were furthermore targeted in the crosshairs of Pagans because of their refusal to bow down to Rome’s paganistic pantheon Gods.  History bears facts that Christians were targeted on many levels. Could it be that Christians will once again be in the Crosshairs of another empire and unbelieving people who have an inherent hatred for Believers?  The Bible tells us yes.

” You will be hated by everyone because of me (Jesus), but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved.” (Mat. 10:22)

Following the dream, I scanned the internet and discovered pictures that remarkably resembled what I had seen in the dream. The place was an ancient city called Petra. It is believed by some that Petra will be a place of refuge for a remnant in Israel when the Antichrist will order the worldwide genocide of Jews, lasting for the last 3½ years of the tribulation period.  I searched for the name meaning of Petra and discovered that it is a feminine appellative of the name Peter whose name in Greek means “stone” or “rock”.  The meaning of the dream was understood.

In brief, the dream conveyed that another empire would arise and that Christians would seek refuge from persecution.  That would explain the reason for the army marching in our direction. But for the faithful there is a place of refuge known as the great biblical Rock of all ages: Jesus Christ. (1 Cor.10:4)  And because He is the Head of the true Church (Col. 1:18); it follows that there has to be a body (Eph. 1:23)  A body that is biblically defined to, indeed, be feminine in nature: Petra is the Bride of Christ, the chaste Virgin, the persecuted and protected Woman in the wilderness for 3 1/2 years, (Rev.12:14) the spotless Church Body.  I am hearing “beautiful”. 

Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ. Wherefore also it is contained in the scripture, Behold, I lay in Zion a chief corner stone (Jesus Christ) elect, precious: and he that believeth on him shall not be confounded.” (1 Pet. 2:5-9)

For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy: for I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ.” (2 Cor. 11:1)

I am not posting this message with the intent of causing rebellion against governmental authorities (Rom. 13:1, 1 Pet. 2:13).  But Jesus clearly taught that we ought to render the things that belong to Caesar to Caesar and the things that belong to God to God.  As Christians we are not to bow down to laws that are in direct contradiction and violation of GOD’s truth and His perfect law which HE codified in Love through His Son Jesus Christ. This message, instead, is posted to encourage Believers – and unbelievers – to earnestly turn to and abide in the Rock of salvation while time still gracefully affords us the opportunity. The sacrosanct call to repentance is not a popular call; and is even denied by some in the fivefold ministry; at times vehemently! But the reality is that the call for repentence and to live the progressively sanctified life is as critical today as it was two thousand years ago.  But you need not take my word for it, take the Word for it.  I believe Elijah, John the Baptist, the Apostles and most of all, Jesus, would all agree.

A critical hour of preparation is upon us.  And to be effectively hidden in Christ the Rock in coming days calls us all to be faithful believers and to be that chaste Bride.  

“If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.  If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.” (1Jn.1 1-10)

“From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.” (Mat. 4:17)

Keep the Faith,

Suzanne
