Old Temple – New Door

“But you have come to Mount Zion and to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to innumerable angels in festal gathering and to the assembly of the firstborn who are enrolled in heaven, and to God the judge of all, and to the spirits of the righteous made perfect, and to Jesus, the mediator of a new covenant, and to the sprinkled blood that speaks a better word than the blood of Abel.” (Heb. 12:22-24)

A few days ago, I prayerfully asked the Lord if He had a message for His Church and Israel.  The following two visions were shown:

First Vision: I saw an ancient structure like a temple with a moat in front of it.  A gate was open and a large group of men were shown walking towards this gate.

Second Vision:  I was shown a white door with a gold handle and trim. It was positioned in a northern direction and on a street called Birch. Like the gate in the first vision, the door was also open. 

INTERPRETATION:

In the first vision, the open gate symbolizes the rebuilding of the second temple and wall under the leadership of Nehemia and Ezra.  The men that were shown walking towards the gate symbolized the thousands of Jews who were called to return there from Babylonian exile.  In brief, the first vision represents the gateway to religious legalities associated with an earthly temple – any temple! I am hearing the word “Bound” which means to be fixed or tied to religious laws and ordinances. Significantly, the gates were places where people bearing lawsuits were tried by temple elders and put to death. ( Deut. 21:19-25; Is. 29:18-21) 

In the second vision, the Door represents the Lord Jesus Christ who is the ‘Door of Promise’. It is a timely door of grace in light of the prophetic days we are living in. That it was open conveys His mercy and ongoing call. He is calling His people – Jews and Gentiles – to return to Him. Those who walk through this doorway are liberated from religious legalism and deception. Most importantly they have been liberated from the consequences of sin; they have found legal pardon through the holy blood of salvation.  Unlike the old temple gate, a convicted but repentant sinner who walks through this open heavenly doorway of justification and sanctification with faith and belief will find life instead! (Heb. 8:1-2)

For the wages of sin is death but the gift of GOD is eternal life in Jesus our Lord.” (Rom. 6:23)

Then Jesus said to them again, “Most assuredly, I say to you, I am the door of the sheep. All who ever came before Me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not hear them. I am the door. If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture. The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.” (Jn. 10:7-10)

It is significant that this Door of Life was shown in a northern direction on Birch Street. North is the biblical direction of the Lord’s throne whereas the word Birch is a Proto-Indo-European word that means “to shine, bright, white”.

“And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever.  But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased…..Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand. (Dan. 12:1-10)

Those who know the identity of the Door and recognize the way He made passable are redeemed Believers whose scarlet sins have been made white as snow. Like stars they will shine the light of truth on Jews and Gentiles so that they, too, can recognize GOD’s plan of eternal salvation and life through His Beloved Son: Messiah, Jesus Christ. These are His ‘Shining Ones!”

Cyber Warfare & Solar Storms

“Be Heard” (Spoken Words) That is to say, let the visions be known!

Some years ago, two red dragons were shown laying dirty eggs on electrical power lines. It was a warning of the Red Dragon’s cyber attacks. A warning that had been previously posted on my blog at that time. And a warning that did come to pass. The following article was surprisingly – but not coincidentally – found online today confirming the identity of these two dragons:

On 7 July 2020, *two Chinese hackers* were indicted for a sustained series of cyberattacks over a decade. The most recent was claimed to be targeted at Moderna Inc, and US officials said the attack had been conducted “in a bid to steal data”, as reported by Reuters. (More in the following link)

Some years ago, a large Coronal Mass Ejection was also shown as a Latter Day Sign. The following recent article also merits serious attention:

North Korea almost certainly has developed super EMP weapons. These are nuclear weapons that are specialized to produce extraordinarily powerful electromagnetic pulse effects and it would make it, along with Russia and China, one of the few nations in the world that has these weapons.” -Dr. Peter Pry, Department of Homeland Security’s EMP Task Force.….Meanwhile, grid operators in some regions of the country are also heeding warnings to prepare for solar storms and sunspots blasting particles into space called Coronal Mass Ejections or CME. (More in the following link)

According to experts in the field, we are not equipped to deal wth cyber attacks and coronal mass ejections. Leaders in Canada and the United States, most specifically, are called to take these threats very seriously. National Security ought to be top priority against all foreign threats during these critical days! Thank heavens that GOD who is all faithful, has and continues to warn HIS people. And we are being warned.

Now when these things begin to take place, straighten up and raise your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.” (Lk.21:28)

The Old and the New – Updated

A message for the Church and for Israel.

Yesterday afternoon I was listening to a scholar speak on television about the rapture. Interestingly, the Dead Sea Scrolls and other text by ancient church scholars support this biblical teaching.  Indeed, knowledge is increasing and points to the prophetic days we are living in presently. (Dan.12:4) I drifted off to sleep and awoke with the program still in progress. Suddenly the following vision was shown. A man was standing up in the air and looking in a northern direction.  He had a black box attached to the back of his head.  Above this black box, a butterfly appeared.

INTERPRETATION:

This man was Jewish. He was looking in a northern direction which is the exalting location of GOD whom many believe is where HIS heavenly throne is located. It follows that it is also the location where Jesus sits – on the right ‘Hand’ side of GOD:

“For exaltation comes neither from the east nor from the west nor from the south. But God is the Judge: He puts down one, And exalts another.” (Ps. 75:6-7)

“A Psalm of David. The Lord says to my Lord: “Sit at my right hand, until I make your enemies your footstool.” (Psalm 101:1) Cf. But when Christ had offered for all time a single sacrifice for sins, he sat down at the right hand of God.” (Heb. 10:12)

The small black box is a tefilla which is usually attached around the head and/or arm containing parchment scrolls inscribed with verses from the Torah.  It is worn during prayer as a sign of remembrance of how GOD had guided the children of Israel out of Egyptian bondage.  Among other things and according to The Sefer ha-Chinuch (13th centuryJewish rabbinic text), the purpose of the tefilla is to help subjugate a person’s wordly desires and to encourage spiritual development.  

The tefilla, when attached to the head, is secured on the forehead and between the eyes:

“And it shall be for a sign for you upon your hand, for a memorial between your eyes, that the law of the Lord may be in your mouth, for with a strong hand did the Lord bring you out of Egypt.” (Ex. 13:9,16; Cf. Deut. 6:8; 11:18)

But the location of the tefilla contrasted with the vision. That it was shown on the back of the head instead became quickly apparent. This is where the Occipital Brain is located. It is the area of the brain that is associated with distance and depth perception, color, object and face recognition, including memory information.  It is that part of the brain that ‘interprets information from the eyes’ and turns it into the world as a person sees it.

Altogether, the vision conveyed that some Jewish people will undergo development in a new way – in a spiritual and physiological way they have never previously understood nor perceived! A beautiful and colorful butterfly finally emerges from its confined cocoon transformed. And so will some Jewish people increasingly emerge out from the box of confining legalities, out of theTorah transformed.  With their senses awakened and exercised, they will finally really see with their eyes. They will recognize, remember and understand that what is written in the Old Testament Torah (the five books of Moses) points to their Messiah, Jesus Christ and the New Covenant. He will be recognized as their heavenly High Priest, Redeemer, Intercessor, Savior and only One through whom anyone can be transformed. Bible prophecy teaches that this nation – and other nations – who do not believe will recognize Him, tragically, only after much tribulation and when He returns:

Then I will pour out on the house of David and on the people of Jerusalem a spirit of grace and prayer, and they will look on Me, the One they have pierced. They will mourn for Him as one mourns for an only child, and grieve bitterly for Him as one grieves for a firstborn son.” (Zech. 12:10) “Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen.” Rev. 1:7)

Jesus’ words are reverberating through space and time in this message!

For if you believed Moses, you would believe Me (Jesus); for he wrote about Me.” (Jn. 5:46)

“Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature (the transformed butterfly) old things are passed away behold, all things are become new.” (2 Cor. 5:17)

(Side note: While searching for information on the tefilla, I learned that archaeological digs confirm evidence of it in Qumran.  Was it a coincidence that the televised scholar was also speaking about finding evidence of the rapture in the Dead Sea Scrolls found in Qumran?  No. GOD works in amazing and mysterious ways!)

Winds of His Heart

Picture: Pixabay

Spoken Word: “Speak”    (Make the vision known)

In an early morning vision, I was shown a heart transposed on the top portion of my stand-up electrical fan and beside my stand-up mirrored jewelry box. The right side of the heart contained people’s faces whereas the left side contained no faces. A colored man with a beard and wearing a blazer was shown walking confidently towards the heart.  Next, I saw an open book – a Bible – with pages that had been lifted as if by a wind. 

INTERPRETATION:

The heart symbolizes Love – it represents the Lord’s Heart. The stand-up fan symbolizes the Person and blowing winds of the Holy Spirit.  And the stand-up jewelry box represents someone precious.  While wondering why only the heart’s right side was filled with people’s faces, the following Words of Knowledge were spoken: ‘Stronger’ and ‘Legal”.

In the Old Testament, the Jewish priests consecrated themselves by sprinkling the blood of the sacrifice on their right ear, right thumb and right toe (Ex. 29 and Lev. 8) The Priest held a position of authority (head) that is attached to the right ear which symbolizes hearing the chosen people’s sins.  The right thumb is attached to the right hand and symbolizes handling and tending to the sacrificial affairs of GOD in the temple. The right toe is attached to the right foot and symbolizes walking circumspectly and righteously.  Only through the sprinkling of the blood of the sacrifice could these parts of the body be made clean and fit for service. 

The New Testament identifies the right side as a special sacrosanct place of honor. Consider that Jesus was granted to sit at the right hand of the FATHER  (Mk. 16:19; Lk. 22:69; Mat.22:44 – 26:64; Acts 2:34 -7:55; 1 Pet.3:22).  Consider also that He is the Head of the Church and our Heavenly High Priest who intercedes on our behalf (Col. 1:18; Hebrews 6, 7, 8, 9. 10).  It makes sense why the Lord who occupies this preeminent priestly place of honor will gather the sheep to His right side. It is truly a ‘stronger’ side because it is the Lamb’s ‘legal’ side of intercession and redemption in heaven! The Lord, our King and High Priest loved His FATHER and loved us so much that HE went like a muted Lamb to the slaughter. Truly, there is no greater love than He who gave His life for us.  Those who turn and abide in Him follow this great Shepherd like sheep because they recognize the holy sacrifice. They recognize His Love for us. They recognize the One like whom they are becoming and will become:

Beloved, now we are children of God; and it has not yet been revealed what we shall be, but we know that when He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is.” (1Jn.3:2)

The Word “separated” has been spoken a couple of times in the last couple of days. It confirms that a great separation is taking place for the time of fulfillment. This is discerned in the man making his way towards the heart. Everyone from different colors and backgrounds all around the world is being called to take his rightful place in the Lord’s Heart. Many are and many more will answer the invitation. Praise GOD! 

The Wind is blowing through the hallowed pages of the Bible and the Book of Remembrance. The Lord is calling His people and they are likened as precious jewels to Him. These are jewels that will adorn our Heavenly High Priest’s new breastplate. A sacred plate that fits over our Lord’s Heart – a Heart of Love.

Then those who feared the Lord spoke to one another, And the Lord listened and heard them; So a book of remembrance was written before Him For those who fear the Lord and who meditate on His name. They shall be Mine, says the Lord of hosts, On the day that I make them My jewels.  And I will spare them as a man spares his own son who serves him. Then you shall again discern between the righteous and the wicked, between one who serves God and one who does not serve Him. (Mal. 3:16-18)

My soul followeth hard after thee: thy right hand upholdeth me.”  (Psalm 63:8)

Strength Made Perfect

Picture: Unsplash

Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will exalt you.” (James 4:10)

In an early morning vision, a woman was shown standing in the air above me with her arm lifted in a flexed position.  As I pondered the vision, the following Words were spoken:  “Independent, Humility, The Lord, Clapping

INTERPRETATION:

The woman symbolizes the feminine representation of the body of Christ. This is the redeemed church who is beginning to find strength through Independence of the world and in humility!  The Lord is empowering her in weakness! (2 Cor. 12:8-10). She is humbly recognizing that she must decrease so that the Lord can increase! (Jn. 3:30)  It follows that the arm she flexes is a display of her Husband’s strength – the mighty biblical arm of the Lord at work in her. That she was shown standing symbolizes that she is finally taking a stand and will not back down in the face of adversity.  Through afflictions, tests and trials, she is finally beginning to understand the way of overcoming sin and its consequences through Jesus Christ’s New Blood Covenant!  It follows that this woman’s stand and position is being recognized by a gesture of approval and joy, Clapping!  This is the Church of Redemption!  This is a vision of the redeemed Church of the New Blood Covenant! And she is strong in the Lord!

Clap your hands, all you nations; shout to God with cries of joy” (Ps 47:1).

 “Let the floods clap their hands: let the hills be joyful together” (Ps 98:8),

Although clapping is positive for the redeemed Church around the world, clapping can also be a prophetic gesture of judgment for anyone and any nation who does not accept GOD’s plan of salvation through HIS New Covenant. Unrepented people and nations who flex in the strength of their flesh are without the understanding, power, guidance and protection of the LORD. On different levels they are open to deception. They remain vulnerable to satanic delusions and attacks and are unguarded during battle. Having brought judgment and persecution upon themselves, they are tragically left to their own devices. Discern. (Ezekiel 21:14-17)

 “**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)

“For the Lord takes pleasure in his people; he adorns the humble with salvation.” (Psalm 149:4)

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to *the Jew first and also the Greek* “. (Jews and Gentiles)  (Rom. 1:16)

Blood Rain

Picture: GettyImages

“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)

Betrothal

Picture: Dreamland Jewellery

For your Maker is your husband, The LORD of hosts is His name; And your Redeemer is the Holy One of Israel; He is called the God of the whole earth.” (Is. 54:5)

I asked GOD in prayer that if He saw fit to send a vision for His Church that it would be posted for His glory and for the edification of His people on earth. Following that request, this vision was shown:

A beautiful engagement ring suddenly floated in the air and appeared to be fitted over the marriage finger.  The ring was magnified.  By that I mean that the light captured the multi-faceted diamond from all directions. The band’s color was silver and it too shone very brilliantly.  It appeared as though the ring were being showcased under a spotlight.  It was a spectacular vision.

INTERPRETATION:

The vision is a declaration of a formal engagement.  It symbolizes the Church’s betrothal! It was fitting that a diamond was shown because it represents a gemstone of durability and of extreme strength. A diamond is formed through heat and pressure; by analogy, it represents repentance and sanctification. The silver band, upon which the stone rests, symbolizes the Word which washes the faithful fiancé continually from the filth of the world. Indeed the Word is comparable to silver;  a metal that has been purified from dross in heat 7 times over (the number for completion).  (Ps.12:6-7). 

Our God, Maker and Lord over the whole earth is selecting His bride-to-be!  According to scriptures, Israel is prophetically recognized to be again betrothed as GOD’s Bride. A Woman who will eventually be redeemed in righteousness when she finally recognizes the Son as her Messiah. 

“For the LORD has called you back, like a wife deserted and wounded in spirit, like the rejected wife of one’s youth,” says your God.” (Is. 54:6)

But until then – and because this is the time of the fulfillment of the gentile nations and the Church – anyone else who is united in true blood covenant with the Lord Jesus Christ is also seen fit for betrothal. Indeed, He is God and Lord over all the earth!

The Word confirms that the Lord will return for a Bride who is spotless and without wrinkle. And although the Bridal gown was shown in a previous vision to be dazzling white (righteousness) and fashioned with beautiful translucent pearls (wisdom), it was understood that this represented Her glorified body.  

“And the Two Shall be One..” Picture by featurePics

GOD’s wife is being selected according to HIS prescribed order! And the redeemed Church is being prepared for the grandest event and wedding ceremony of all with Her Husband!  And here is wisdom…The two shall be joined again forever in the Spirit of Oneness! This should make all the negativity of the world fade in comparison to what is in store for the faithful Believer!  The Church (I am hearing ‘Discouraged’) is called to be encouraged instead and to keep on keeping on in the ways of righteousness! Know and understand that you are being prepared for complete union with your Maker and Husband. Church, do not be downcast but rejoice instead!  The Holy Spirit’s Light is showing you – showcasing – GOD’s ring of betrothal.  My oh my! 

“Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord.  For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body. Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing. Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;  that he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish. So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself.  For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourishes and cherishes it, even as the Lord the church:  For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones. For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh. This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church.  Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband. (Eph 5:22-33)

Keep the Faith,

The Aroma of Love

I am the Rose of Sharon and the Lily of the Valley.” (Sol. 2:1) 

The prayers of contrite and humble Believers are like the sweetest lullabies to the ears of those who hear them pray.  Yesterday while listening to someone pray in this manner, I was shown several beautiful, vibrant red roses floating upwards toward heaven. 

The thoughts of this vision remained with me this morning during prayer.  I thought about the importance of approaching GOD with reverence and deep love in our hearts.  To prayerfully magnify HIM, to praise HIM, to thank HIM for HE is such a loving and just FATHER.  And to make our requests known to HIM. Sometimes during all these thoughts, an open door made of transparent glass was shown.

INTERPRETATION:

Within the context of this vision, the roses represented the fragrant aroma of this New Covenant Believer’s prayers. They symbolically mounted to heaven like roses because red symbolizes the redeeming blood of the Lamb, Jesus Christ in whose name we always pray.  And the roses’ thorns, on the other hand, represented the sacrificial afflictions the Lord carried on our behalf.  It follows that GOD receives our petitions because He recognizes the aroma of HIS Son in our prayers.

Jesus Christ, that awesome Rose of Sharon, is also our High Heavenly Melchizedekian Priest, replacing all earthly Levitical High Priests who offered prayerful fragrant aromas to GOD in the Old Testament. (Heb. 6:19-20, Heb. 7, 8 9, 10) He is also symbolically represented as that intercessory Angel of Revelation who also offers to GOD the incense and aroma of the saints’ prayers. No angel in heaven has that authority but the Lord Jesus Christ Himself.

And he (Aaron the High Priest) shall take a censer full of burning coals of fire from off the altar before the Lord, and his hands full of sweet incense beaten small, and bring it within the veil: And he shall put the incense upon the fire before the Lord, that the cloud of the incense may cover the mercy seat that is upon the testimony, that he die not. (Lev. 16:12-13)

This hope we have as an anchor of our soul, both sure and steadfast, and which enters the Presence behind the veil where the forerunner has entered for us, even Jesus having become High Priest for ever according to the order of Melchizedek.” (Heb. 6:19-20)

Another angel came and stood at the altar with a golden censer, and he was given much incense to offer with the prayers of all the saints on the golden altar before the throne, and the smoke of the incense which are the prayers of the saints, rose before God from the hand of the angel.” (Rev. 8:3-4)

I am impressed to share these visions with you today to encourage you to pray without ceasing.  Dear Reader, you might not always feel or sense the beautiful aroma of your sincere heartfelt prayers.  But rest assured that they are mounting up to heaven on the sweetest, most fragrant and softest wind of the Holy Spirit. The open door shown this morning symbolized that the way between heaven and earth has been made open for communication with GOD through Jesus. He is the door of life. (Jn.10:9)

Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” (Phil. 4:18)

Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.” (Phil. 4:6-8)

Keep the Faith,

Workmans’ Tools

Yesterday in a vision I was shown a large kitchen utensil holder on a kitchen counter. It contained, among others, large utensils such as spoons, forks, knives and spatulas.

INTERPRETATION:

This vision has to do with preparing and serving the Word of the Lord on a large scale. It was shown immediately after someone was talking about walking the narrow pathway. Those who have been called to do the Lord’s work – to serve the Word – are called to earnestly ensure they have, themselves, entered through the great Shepherd’s narrow gate via His finished works. To walk righteously and live an exemplary life in Christ.

Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it.  But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it. ” (Mat. 7:13-14)

This vision confirms that, for an approved worker, the tools will be made available to carry out a great work!

“Study (make every effort) to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” (2 Tim. 2:15)

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)

Keep the Faith,
