Rises and Falls

Throughout history all civilizations have had a rise and a fall ~

“And he (God) changes the times and the seasons: he removes kings, and sets up kings: he gives wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding.” (Dan. 2:21)

The following visions have been repeatedly brought to remembrance these past couple of weeks. Although these visions had previously been posted on my first blog some years ago; it is recognized that it is a call to release them again.  It is not this writer’s intention to disrespect nor to denigrate the following national flags in any way.  It is, instead, a call of warning for the people of Canada and the United States.

The Canadian Flag:

From an aerial view, a white trash bag that had not been tied at the top was shown.  As I looked down into the bag, it was then that I saw the familiar bright red and white colors of a crumpled Canadian flag.   

INTERPRETATION:

The current Canadian flag bearing the emblem of the maple leaf was designed in 1965 by George Stanley. The color red was intended to symbolize prosperity and hope and the color white was intended to reflect impartiality and peace. It is noteworthy that the flag was in a white trash bag because white, in my visions and dreams, always represents God’s purity and righteousness.  In this case, the flag has been judged by GOD’s standards. The wrinkled flag denotes that unrighteousness has crumpled the moral fabric of this nation. Much could be said about this nation’s precipitous moral decline and fall into corruption on many levels but is too lengthy to include in this post.  Those who have awakened and have understanding know what that entails.

The American Flag:

In a separate vision, I was shown the American flag being placed in a freezer and soon thereafter the door closed.  A few seconds later, the freezer door opened and the flag stood up.  But it was different. It was smaller. The white and red stripes, which represent the 13 British colonies that declared independence in 1776 and together formed the United States of America, were gone.  The flag had an emblem on the top right side.  Although I could not discern the emblem, only a couple to a few stars were included.

 INTERPRETATION:

The flag being placed in the freezer symbolizes a difficult time for the United States as a nation. That the door opened and the flag emerged small and without stripes suggests that the foundations upon which this nation was established will be altered. That only a couple to a few stars were shown in the emblem appears to also suggest that current and future circumstances might change the organized fabric of the United States of America.

Oh Canada, the trash bag has not yet been sealed!  Awake, open your eyes and be extricated from the refuse of the world (Ps. 146:8; Acts. 26:18; Eph.1:18) Seek the Lord, find refuge and comfort in the One who is our safeguard. The fate and future of this nation remains in the balance and is a warning.

America, brace yourself in the Lord, find comfort in Him and prepare for some unprecedented changes!

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.” (2 chr. 7:14)

Keep the Faith, it’s what keeps all who are His!

More than Birds and Lilies

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.” (Pil. 4:6-8)

This morning, 3 Words of Knowledge were brought to my remembrance. Years ago during prayer I was earnestly entreating the Lord for something.  And that is putting it mildly.  I kept asking over and over for my prayer to be answered.  Repeatedly using words such as “Please…Please GOD!”  I might even have been whining – yes, I was whining. Suddenly, that beautiful Voice that is so well recognized spoke firmly and clearly:  “Do Not Beg”.

At that time I thought that I stood a greater chance that GOD would hear me if my prayers were persistently prayed in this manner.  But the precious Holy Spirit stopped me in my tracks that day and impressed upon me that I was praying in unbelief. Repeatedly asking with pleading words in prayer was in fact a reflection of one who was not casting her burdens on the ONE who loves and cares for us. (1 Pet. 5:7)   It displayed a lack of trust and lack of faith in GOD.  I was humbled by the Voice of the Lord that day – a Voice that echoed through His Word. Indeed, I had been begging.

It’s not that we cannot pray for something more than once – we are called to pray without ceasing.  (Lk. 6:12, 1 Thess. 5:17)  It is the manner in which we pray that GOD does not favor.  As true Believers, we are called to pray with faith and belief and this should be reflected in our words. To trust that HE hears the prayers of HIS faithful sons and daughters because HE loves us – HE is our Heavenly FATHER. And to always believe that whatever the outcome of these prayers might be, HE always hears us.  The fulfillment of prayers might be immediate. Sometimes the Believer is called to exercise patience because things need to be orchestrated in the background and takes time. Sometimes the devil gets in the works! And sometimes the unfulfillment of prayerful requests is what is best for us eventhough we might not understand the reason. Whatever the case, faith tells us that GOD always acts according to HIS divine purposes on behalf of the faithful Believer.

But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.  Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him.” (Mat. 6:7-8)

“Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? Which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature? “So why do you worry about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; and yet I say to you that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.  Now if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?  (Mat. 6:25-30)

HE hears the prayers of the faithful!

Blood Rain

“For the life of the flesh is in the blood, and I have given it to you upon the altar to make atonement for your souls; for it is the blood that makes atonement for the soul.” (Lev, 17:11)

Indeed, under the law almost everything is purified with blood, and without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness of sins.” (Heb. 9:22)

“In him (Jesus) we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace.” (Eph. 1:17)

The following vision was shown some years ago and was brought to my remembrance strongly this morning.  It is shared always with the intent of encouraging people to recognize GOD’s plan of redemption and to not miss what is happening during this age of grace.

In this vision, I was shown blood falling on people from an open sky like raindrops. But the people were shown running away from this rain – they were afraid of it.  Some were shown running in between tall buildings to take cover and hide.

INTERPRETATION:

Rain symbolizes the outpouring of the Holy Spirit.  However, this rain is Blood and it symbolizes life! The life that Jesus Christ gave to redeem, sanctify and renew fallen humanity. This vision conveyed, years ago, that many were and continue to be repelled by Christ’s redeeming Blood.  Unbelievers – and some Believers alike – cannot bear to be touched by it because it involves a turning away from sin and from self.  A refusal to align their will with GOD’s Will.  Not an easy thing to accomplish, for sure – the flesh is weak. But the Spirit is willing!

The outpouring, long ago prophesied by Joel, has arrived. But many will miss it because of unbelief, a lack of understanding and complete belief in GOD’s plan of redemption through His Son, Jesus Christ.   In order to partake of this revival and be a strong people of the faith during these days of change, we need to have a personal relationship with the Lord and be in one accord with GOD’s plan.  There cannot be the outpouring of water en mass that so many Believers are still waiting for without the utmost respect, utmost humility and deep core belief in the holy sanctifying blood of redemption – the two are inseparable.  Do you see?

Be glad, O children of Zion, and rejoice in the Lord your God, for he has given the early rain for your vindication (victory through GOD’s plan of redemption) he has poured down for you abundant rain, the early and the latter rain, as before.” (Joel 2:23)

And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my Spirit on all flesh; your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, and your young men shall see visions.”  (Joel 2:28)

From Dust to Light

In an attempt to understand the Rapture (a term that is not biblical) Apostle Paul used the Greek Word “Harpazo” which means “to snatch away” or “to seize” faithful Believers in Christ.  In brief, it is an event biblically described as being “taken up” in the air and to be with the Lord forever.  This writer believes that there will be such an event – the Word is very clear on that.  But what was questionable to this Believer was how and when this would happen. During prayer one day I asked the Lord to open my earthly understanding on this subject.  No sooner was the question posed that a vision was then shown. 

VISION:

Suddenly I was shown, from an aerial view, my slow cooker on the kitchen counter.  That is to say, I was up in the air and looking down into it. The glass lid had been lifted and hovered above the bottom part. The white ceramic bowl inside in which the food cooks had been lifted and removed. But the outside shell which was stained on the inside remained on the counter.

INTERPRETATION:

The kitchen counter represents a place of preparation.  The slow cooker represents the tripartite body: Body, Soul and Spirit.  Its function symbolizes the spiritual operation of gradual sanctification – the process of ‘being made white’. A process that involves fire or heat which is the power of the Holy Spirit made available through Jesus Christ’s finished work.

The stained outer shell represents the earthly flesh body and the top lid represents the earthly head – as spoken and confirmed yesterday.  Both form part of one body – the corruptible body.  A body that cannot be raised to inherit the kingdom of GOD.  A body that returns to the dust of the earth from which it was made. It follows that only the soul and the spirit contained inside the slow cooker will be taken up.  The soul is that part of ourselves that interfaces with the world and the Spirit: A part that can also be stained by the world.  It symbolically resides inside the Spirit body (inside the white ceramic bowl).  And just as food is transformed by the heat of the white bowl so it is that the soul is also sanctified and gloriously transformed by the fire of the Holy Spirit.  The Holy Spirit is symbolically conducted through the electrical cord which is connected to the outlet which is the omniscient power of GOD.  This is the mystery, the transformation which Apostle Paul long ago declared; obviously a scriptural truth he had studied in the Old Testament:

Or ever the silver cord be loosed, or the golden bowl be broken, or the pitcher be broken at the fountain, or the wheel broken at the cistern.  Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it.”  (Eccl. 12:6-7) …..“All go to the same place. All came from the dust and all return to the dust.” (Eccl. 3:20)

Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; nor does corruption inherit incorruption.  Behold, I tell you a mystery: We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed – in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption and this mortal must put on immortality.  So when this corruptible has put on incorruption, and this mortal has put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written: “Death is swallowed up in victory.”  (1Cor. 15:50-54)

Apostle Paul further taught that when this “snatching away” occurs, faithful Believers who are still alive at that time will be gloriously transformed and taken up to be with the Lord forever. No doubt, there will occur a supernatural event that will allow this to happen even though the body is alive. As for the timing – no one knows with 100 percent accuracy when it will take place. Because of the uncertainty of the timing, it behooves us to be prepared at all times.  Until then Believers who are in true covenant with GOD, are already experiencing a type of being raised up – no doubt this is the soul in its gradual stage of transformation before the final big event. (Eph. 2:6)

“But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one another with these words”  (1 Thess. 4:13-18)

The Evil Among Us

Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.” (Rev. 12:12)

Today’s message deals with a topic that discomforts many Believers.  I have been wondering for the past couple of months whether or not this subject should be broached at the risk of giving it more life than that which has the power to overcome it.  But because so many downplay this reality or do not believe that Satan even exists, I am moved to share some experiences in this blog to confirm otherwise. And to also increase awareness that to effectively battle and overcome this being of darkness, one must first recognize that it exists.

VISION:

Many years ago, I was standing somewhere in a vision when suddenly I recognized and felt that something very evil was approaching.  It was the most intense darkness and most evil presence I had ever experienced. When describing this vision, I often say that it was similar to a gathering of all the vile evildoers of the world into one concentrated space.  To say that it was intense is to put it mildly.  Within a couple of seconds of this thing approaching, a powerful voice from deep within my chest automatically rose up to my mouth and I shouted: “Are you from GOD?!”  No sooner were these words spoken, that this evil darkness was instantly sucked back, comparatively speaking, by what felt like a universal vacuum.  The force of this action was so powerful that I felt my cheeks decompress in real life.

INTERPRETATION:

This vision and experience testify that there really exists such a being as a biblical devil, also known as Satan, the serpent and the dragon.  That he operates through fallen angels and principalities.  And that his power has and continues to be increasingly magnified by the number of evildoers who succumb to him. He is, indeed, also known as Legion. The reason I shouted the question was a request for identification, as was the case with Jesus when He dealt with an unclean spirit. Albeit, at the time I had no idea why I asked the question.

For He (Jesus) said to him ‘Come out of the man, unclean spirit!’ Then He asked him, ‘What is thy name?’ And he answered, saying, ‘My name is Legion: for we are many,’” (Mark 5:8-9)

The serpent’s modus operandi is to overcome multitudes of souls in order to magnify his power and establish his kingdom on earth.  Dear Believer, the key to your battle today, on any level, is through Jesus Christ’s New Blood Covenant.  It is the only way that the most Holy Trinity can indwell your mind and heart in order to discern the evil among us and to recognize and fight the adversary. Genuine repentance and allowing GOD’s Holy Spirit to purge you with fire and to cleanse you with HIS Water and Word continuously (progressive sanctification) is essential.

Because evil will intensify in the world, the Lord is repeatedly calling His Church to repentance and to decide which side it will stand on.  He wants to protect His faithful Believers and the only legal means to do so is through Jesus Christ’s New Covenant. It is the only way that we can effectively don the armour of GOD, wield HIS Sword with HIS authority and stand boldly to battle effectively and with victory.  

Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God: Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints; And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in bonds: that therein I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.” (Eph. 6:11-12)

“Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.” (James 4:7)

POST ESTHER – Updated

Recently the following vision has been percolating in my spirit.  And when that happens, it is recognized as a call to release it – to let it be known. 

Many years ago I was shown in vision a bright green sign on the right side of a highway.  It was a road sign that typically marks the name of a town or a city of destination.  On it were written the following Words in capital letters: POST ESTHER.

INTERPRETATION:

Although Post Esther was the destination; the vision was also a call to post a message about the Book of Esther.  In brief, Esther was a Jewish queen who was married to king Ahasuerus of Persia.  This king was previously married to Vashti.  But when she refused to obey him, he replaced her with a beautiful new wife: Esther. The story recounts that the king’s adviser, Haman, was offended by Mordecai who was Esther’s cousin and guardian.  Because of his incessant hatred, he petitioned the king to kill all the Jews.  He was granted permission. But Esther who was wisely guided by Mordecai, intervened and the tables turned. The king ordered Haman to be hung on the very gallows he had built for Mordecai. He also granted his new wife the request of having the Jews destroy all their enemies.  In celebration of this historical defeat, Purim is a Jewish tradition that is commemorated yearly by the Jewish nation.

Esther’s name which means, ‘concealed’ and ‘hidden’ was previously named Myrtle which means ‘righteousness’.   As the story unfolds, we can discern that by doing the right thing, Esther whose identity remained concealed in the king’s palace brought her people to victory. It was a win/win situation for Persia and the Jewish nation at that time.

We have arrived at a critical juncture where the Church, including the nation of Israel, risks being put to death by Haman.  Haman’s name means “tumultuous noise”.   He is the voice and noise of the pandemic, divisive nations, divisive politics, divisive religions and doctrines, divisive interest groups, divisive educational systems, divisive laws and divisive news and media. The hatred of Haman goes on and on and the tumultuous noise has reached a deafening crescendo. Consequently, the beautiful Esther, which symbolizes the Church and Israel, have both fallen into a state of wordly disorientation and spiritual lethargy because of Haman.  This beautiful daughter who was meant to be prepared in concealment and whose righteousness was meant to be revealed for such a time as this is not fulfilling her role.  Tragically, the Church is spiritually sick and asleep.  And Israel does not recognize its Messiah. Both are vulnerable to hateful enemies and destruction.

King Ahasuerus symbolizes national governmental leaders who have also been hoodwinked by Haman and who have influence over the vulnerable Church and nations. What to do?  Church leaders in the capacity of the fivefold ministry are called to return to the true and proper doctrine. Are called to get back into proper alignment and let Christ be the supreme Head of the persecuted Church.  The New Covenant! Only then can this daughter be properly awakened, equipped, fortified and healed. She can then be that shining Light that can illuminate people caught in fallen systems; including those on Capitol Hill and other governments that linger in darkness. In this glorious examplary Light – in the ardour of spiritual righteousness– Esther can, at least, find a modicum of protection against fallen governmental leaders and systems until the Lord returns to completely establish His Kingdom.

 “You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden.” (Mat 5:14)

And He (GOD the FATHER) put all things under His (Jesus’) feet, and gave Him to be head over all things to the church, which is His body, the fullness of Him who fills all in all.” (Eph. 1:22)

Hopefully we each and all will come to realize that the solution to confronting Haman today means that we have to step back and to really let Christ take over. Vashti is currently on her way out (discern). Let us hope and pray that, until the time of fulfillment, the uncompromising redeemed Church can offset besetting and destructive governmental laws in its respective sphere until the time of fulfillment. I am hearing “opportunity”.   This message does not encourage the unification of Church and State in its present ailing condition nor a socialistic agenda. But a righteous way – an opportunity to protect the Church from Haman – can be made possible when it is in proper and true alignment. And until the Lord returns to establish His reign in full on earth. Let us not miss the road sign which was also a warning – from years ago – for the Church and national Israel.

But Jesus looked at them and said to them, “With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”  (Mat. 19:26)

This post will be revisited in the future. (It already has with today’s update)

The Circle of the Earth

It is he who sits above the circle of the earth, and its inhabitants are like grasshoppers; who stretches out the heavens like a curtain, and spreads them like a tent to dwell in.”  (Is. 40:22)

Recently the Holy Spirit has been bringing back to my remembrance visions from years gone by.  Most of them were never recorded nor shared publicly even though I was instructed to “Speak Suzanne”. Looking back on it now, it is recognized that the enemy had gotten into the works, literally!  It’s interesting that every minute detail is remembered. This can only be attributed to the operations of the Holy Spirit for the expressed purpose of sharing these ‘lost and found’ visions, dreams and words of knowledge for the benefit of the Church.  Recently, the following vision has been repeatedly brought to my remembrance:

VISION:

Years ago, I awoke one morning and saw up and above me a white cross that was attached to a white circle.  That is to say, the cross appeared at the top of the circle.  Visualize a ring having for a precious stone a cross instead of a diamond. The only difference is that this ring was much larger.  The vision lingered then disappeared.

INTERPRETATION:

White always represents biblical righteousness in my dreams and visions.  A circle can figuratively represent a group of people with shared professions, interests or acquaintances. And geometrically, a circle – which has no beginning nor end – also represents a round plane. The Cross, which is the most precious part of the ring or circle represents GOD’s plan of redemption through HIS Son, Jesus Christ.

From a geometric perspective the white circle represents the circle of the earth in a redeemed and unified state. The Cross at the top symbolizes that the plan of redemption was ordained from above – from heaven by GOD.  The Cross –  not the object – but the plan of redemption is the most prophetic and precious high point of interest. It is this plan that will unify people of different races and cultures around the world (I am hearing backgrounds). This is interpreted to mean that people from different backgrounds and from the most remote areas on earth will have the opportunity to come to the Cross – they will not be forgotten!  (Mat. 24:14)   When man has finally and humbly come to the end of himself – tragically many won’t – he will recognize that the only way of unification with GOD and a divided and fallen world is through Jesus Christ and no one and nothing else.  There really is no other way. (Jn.14:6) At that prophetic time in the history of a redeemed world and earth, that ‘thing’ who had controlled politics, religions, governments and all false mindsets will have been defeated! And a new heaven and a new earth will have emerged. Praise the Lord and thank you Jesus.  

Then he established the heavens, I was there; when he drew a circle on the face of the deep.” (Prov. 8:27)

He has inscribed a circle on the face of the waters at the boundary between light and darkness. (Job 26:10)

Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea.” (Rev. 21:1)

For GOD so loved the world that HE sent HIS only begotten Son so that whosoever will believe in Him will not perish but have eternal 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,
