Sitting at the kitchen table this morning with my cup of tea, I was reminded of two visions from years ago. I felt moved to post both because they dovetail in meaning so well that one could not be posted without the other.
A man dressed in white and wearing a white turban with an embossed precious stone at the front was sitting at a table with me. (I had the impression he was a priest.) He held a container of golden oil in his hands. He proceeded to pour this oil in the palms of my hands and rubbed it all over my fingers. The Word “Fingertips” was spoken. And the vision ended.
Later in another vision, a man dressed in a long white robe stood behind me while I was working on the computer. His right hand rested on my right shoulder and his left hand rested on my left shoulder. He was intently looking over my head and at the computer screen; it appeared he was interested in what I was writing. I had a strong impression he was a teacher and that his name was “John.” And the vision ended.
The man wearing the white turban was indicative of the High Priest’s headress. Within the context of the vision, he represented our heavenly High Priest, Jesus Christ. The precious stone affixed on the front of the turban is significant because the forehead is biblically considered a sacred, holy and valuable area on the body. It was the area on the body where the high priest’s gold plate bearing the words: “Holiness Unto the Lord” was located. And it is also the area where GOD will seal HIS people during the latter days. Importantly, the forehead is part of the Head; it depicts the Lord’s authority over a faithful Believer.
When revisiting this message today (October 11/21) it became suddenly apparent to me that this stone also represented a born-again Believer chosen – not by men – but by the Lord Himself – to be a member of a holy priesthood. Such Believers are comparable to living stones that reflect the Lord’s unique and peculiar standard for Love and spiritual laws. Those who find themselves in this Light cannot entertain darkness because they are calibrated to a higher Holy Spirit frequency which men of this earth cannot recognize. Nor can they conform to anything nor anyone else’s standards without feeling the sting and burning contradictions in their minds and hearts. (Jer. 31:31-33; Heb. 10:16) Past compromising experiences that nonethless foster growth has served and continues to serve them well in this respect.
“Becoming to Him as to a living stone, rejected indeed by men but chosen by God and precious, you also, as living stones, are being built up a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. Therefore it is also contained in the Scripture,” (1 Pet. 2:4-5)
Only Jesus Christ is empowered on earth by the FATHER and through His selfless sacrifice to pour anointing oil on a Believer who grows in spiritual maturity and in service to Him. Rubbing the oil on my hands and fingers meant that the Holy Spirit would provide illumination – the Light of Truth – through my fingertips. That is to say, by flipping the pages of Holy Writ and by writing in His service.
The man in the second vision was an actual angel and most likely my guardian angel. The name John means “God has been gracious”. That I sensed he was a teacher means that a certain hierarchy and network of angels work through the synergistic operations of the Holy Spirit. In this case, I believe that this angel was overlooking, guiding and ensuring that the work oiled through these fingertips, was progressing according to GOD’s Will. Indeed, angels do carry out GOD’s bidding and Word! And, indeed, GOD is so loving and gracious!
“Praise the LORD, you his angels, you mighty ones who do his bidding, who obey his word.” (Ps. 103:20)
“For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways.” (Psalm 91:11)
In summary, faithful Believers are likened to precious living stones that are uniquely positioned on our Royal King’s diadem and heavenly High Priest’s turban! We are called to become a holy priesthood in His service, to grow in spiritual maturity and utilize His anointing oil and Light to help illuminate, fortify and edify His Church. (2 Salm. 2:29) And though the forces of hell will be unleashed against these ones considering these present days, I am encouraging everyone to keep going – it’s too important! And Angels. Though we cannot worship them nor pray to them, we can rest assured that there are angels sent on assignment by GOD to help and to guide us with our GOD-ordained missions (Lk. 4:7-8; Rev. 22:8-9). With GOD, Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit and a company of angels of His truth and Light, we are in extremely good company, as the angel in white (righteousness) standing behind me would testify.
