“As each one has received a gift, minister it to one another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God. If anyone speaks, let him speak as the oracles of God. If anyone ministers, let him do it as with the ability which God supplies, that in all things God may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom belong the glory and the dominion forever and ever. Amen. (1 Pet. 4:10-11 in combination with 1 Cor. 12:1-14 and Rom. 12:6-8)
This morning I was thinking about the gifts that the Lord bestows on New Covenant Believers to help edify the Church. Immediately I saw in vision a large, very green tree with an abundance of vibrant colorful fruit.
The message was understood. What we do with these gifts become works – fruit – that help to spread GOD’s purpose on earth. And because our FATHER in heaven is so unfathomably good, it follows that the Church was designed to bear good fruit to meet the needs of the people.
Gifts and works do not provide salvation – they do not pave our way to heaven. To believe this would nullifyJesus’ sacrifice on the Cross and the worse affront to GOD. But when filled with the Holy Spirit, faithful Believers will be moved to do works that are in conformity with their faith.
“Our people must also learn to engage in good deeds to meet pressing needs, so that they will not be unfruitful. “ (Titus 3:14)
“Thus also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead. But someone will say, “You have faith, and I have works.” Show me your faith without our works, and I will show you my faith by my works. (James 12:17-18)
This message is a reminder for all of us to stir up the gifts that are within. Our service to GOD in whatever capacity is needed somewhere and somehow. It is a very big world we live in!
I also kindly call on readers to pray as Hurricane Ida, a category 4 hurricane, prepares to make landfall. Your prayers are fragrant gifts and flavorful fruit that will bless others and bless you! I am hearing: “GOD” This speaks of magnifying GOD for HIS unfathomable goodness – He is the Blesser who works in and through us for the benefit of all.
“For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord.” (1 Thess. 4:16-17)
Believers are exceedingly blessed to have an open communication with GOD through the Holy Spirit. Thank you Jesus for making it all possible!
As noted in the previous post entitled “Saints in Waiting”, I had planned on writing a message relating to those who remain after the dead in Christ are raised up. I waited on the Lord for more clarity on the subject – an answer was received last evening during prayer.
A vision of a white clothes hanger was shown on a bed.
A clothes hanger symbolizes an object upon which clothes are hung whereas white represents GOD’s righteousness and purity. The message was understood. The time clearly has not yet come for those Believers to be clothed with immortality and with their glorious bodies. That the white hanger was shown resting on a bed is a call for Believers to continue resting patiently in the Lord’s finished works and in His Righteousness until this resurrection takes place. A time known only to GOD and a subject well known to Apostle Paul:
“For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed upon with our house which is from heaven: If so be that being clothed we shall not be found naked. For we that are in this tabernacle do groan, being burdened: not for that we would be unclothed, but clothed upon, that mortality might be swallowed up of life. Now he that hath wrought us for the selfsame thing is God, who also hath given unto us the earnest of the Spirit. Therefore we are always confident, knowing that, whilst we are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord: For we walk by faith, not by sight: We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord. Wherefore we labour, that, whether present or absent, we may be accepted of him. For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad. (2 Cor. 5:1-10)
“For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God. For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope. Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now. And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body. For we are saved by hope: but hope that is seen is not hope: for what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for? But if we hope for that we see not, then do we with patience wait for it.” (Rom. 8:18-25)
Though the timing of this supernatural manifestation is not known, we can rest assured that a great time of preparation is at hand as the Lord and His angels are measuring and fitting His people for their heavenly and glorious garments! I am hearing in the Spirit that sealing is taking place!
“Do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. (Eph. 4:30)
Keep the Faith in the Lord’s finished Works, Suzanne
“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. ” (1 Thess. 4:16-17)
A headstone is a stone marker that describes a grave with someone’s name, the date of birth and the date of death. It marks the final resting place of the deceased. In a vision last week I was shown a cemetery with many headstones. But the headstones were all covered with a beautiful soft blue fabric.
The interpretation of this vision was found in the Book of Numbers as it relates to GOD’s tabernacle. An earthly tabernacle that had been patterned and built according to a heavenly design. It is written that all of its furniture, utensils and vessels had to be properly packed before being carried to great distances enroute to the promised land. Before being carried by the sons of Kohath, it was the duty of the High Priest, Aaron, – and other priests – to first pack and secure all these holy items by first covering them with a blue cloth before being wrapped with badgers’ skins. (Numbers 4:4-15)
Blue is the color of the sky – of heaven – and explains why this fabric covered and enveloped these headstones. The vision conveyed that these faithful Saints have already been prepared to make their journey to the promised heavenly land. (2 Cor. 5:8; Heb. 11:16) And though their names are inscribed on their earthen markers, they are most significantly heavenly inscribed in the Lamb’s Book of Life. (Rev. 21:27) These are dearly departed Saints who, at a specific time in the future, will be transformed into incorruptible glorious bodies of Light. (1 Thess. 4:16-17) This explains the reason why the headstones were shown covered in blue but not with badgers’ skins. That is to say that the glorious transformation required for the journey to the new promised land in higher dimensions of Light might not take place until the construction of the new heaven and the new earth has been completed. (Rev. 20 and 21) “Daughter Wisdom Believe it” Spoken Words.
The headstones were also very meaningful as discerned in the works of Zerubbabel. This governor of Judah had been appointed by the Word of GOD to rebuild the temple and its foundation, to bring forth ‘the Headstone’ and to ‘return temple vessels’ that Nebuchadnessar had preserved following the conquest of Babylon.
“This is the word of the LORD unto Zerubbabel, saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the LORD of hosts. Who art thou, O great mountain? before Zerubbabel thou shalt become a plain: and he shall bring forth the headstone thereof with shoutings, crying, Grace, grace unto it. Moreover the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, The hands of Zerubbabel have laid the foundation of this house; his hands shall also finish it; and thou shalt know that the LORD of hosts hath sent me unto you. For who hath despised the day of small things? for they shall rejoice, and shall see the plummet in the hand of Zerubbabel with those seven; they are the eyes of the LORD, which run to and fro through the whole earth.” (Zech. 4:8-10)
The Headstone would manifest ages later as Jesus Christ, the Head of the body and the Church (Col. 1:18). Through the reconciliation of His shed blood, our High Heavenly Priest is now the One who is rebuilding the new heaven, the new temple and its foundation and preparing redeemed earthen vessels to return to dimensions of Light in GOD’s Kingdom; the likes of which we cannot fathom. Indeed, it is by grace that we are saved unto eternal life and not by our own efforts nor works. It is the gift of GOD through His Son Jesus Christ our Lord and Saviour.
“For by grace are ye saved through faith: and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of GOD. Not of works lest any man should boast.” (Eph. 2:8-9)
In summary, the vision conveys that the final transformation into glorious bodies is the next step in GOD’s great masterplan for Saints who have already physically expired and for Saints who will remain. (A message with vision follows for those who remain). We are being warned not to delay so great a plan that has been set in motion since the Adamic fall.
“Father, I desire that they also whom You gave Me may be with Me where I am, that they may behold My glory which You have given Me; for You loved Me before the foundation of the world.” (Jn. 17:24)
A few days ago, a vision manifested in which a large right hand securing a tree in a planter was shown near a cargo trailer. Because I did not fully understand the interpretation, I physically went looking for clues at the site where the trailer was located. The soil in that area is saturated with water that is beneficial for growth. The tree was positioned in front of the wide rear door and near a Canadian licence plate. Close to the plate was a label displaying the American flag with the following written words: “US Patriot”.
Patriot: Definition – Someone who vigorously supports their country and is prepared to defend it against enemies or detractors.
A cargo trailer is a storage bin that holds goods and merchandise that are precious to the owner. In this case, it is symbolic of Christians who have been inheritantly blessed and equipped with knowledge, wisdom and understanding. This vision conveys that some smaller ministries (smaller tree) are being cared for by the Lord’s Right Hand, HIS Holy Spirit and Word, so that they can go out and bear much fruit in His service. I am also hearing in “Everything”. As Christian patriots, they are first and foremost extremely loyal to GOD. They are well acquainted with the “ashes of mourning” for they have been there and it will serve them well. Their mission is to help defend the nations against satanic darkness by disseminating (hearing: “Deliver“) the Word of Light and Salvation. In this work, GOD will be glorified.
A cargo trailer is transportable which conveys that this divinely-appointed work will increasingly flourish and reach geographic areas outside of these ministries’ physical radius. This is a vision that speaks of personal and ministerial growth and blessings for all who have been – and for all who will be – genuinely called to minister; including all who will receive the delivered Word during these latter days. More of GOD’s Light and Truth will be coming out of Canada, the U.S. and other countries as the Lord selects HIS people.
“To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he might be glorified.’ (Is. 61:13)
“But blessed is the one who trusts in the LORD, whose confidence is in him. They will be like a tree planted by the water (Symbolic of the Holy Spirit) that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit” (Jeremiah 17:7-8).
The first chapter of the Book of Proverbs, in conjunction with other New Testament verses, are instrumental to understanding a vision shown a few weeks ago. In this particular vision, long thin dangling strands of objects were shown hovering in the air in a straight row. Upon closer examination, I noticed that they were multiple, beautiful silver neck chains with small silver pendants. All were of the same length.
In Proverbs Chapter 1:1-8, Solomon writes about the importance of receiving instruction relating to wisdom, justice, judgment, and equity and of perceiving understanding in words. He also writes about the importance of giving prudence to the simple including discretion and knowledge to the young men. To shun evil counsel and to hear the instructions of one’s father and the law of one’s mother. He finishes this scriptural thread by writing:
“For they will be a graceful ornament on your head. And chains about your neck.” (Proverbs. 1:9)
Silver biblically refers to the Word. (Ps.12:6) It follows that the silver neck chains were indicative of words of wisdom as revealed in the Book of Proverbs:
“My son, if you receive my words. And treasure my command within you. So that you incline your ear to wisdom and apply your heart to understanding. Yes, if you cry out for discernment, and lift up your voice for understanding, if you seek her as silver and search for her as for hidden treasures; Then you will understand the fear of the Lord, And find the knowledge of God. For the LORD gives wisdom; From His mouth come knowledge and understanding: He stores up sound wisdom for the upright: He is a shield to those wo wallk uprightly: He guards the paths of justice and preserves the way of His saints. Then you will understand righteousness and justice, Equity and every good path.” (Prov. 2:1-9)
In the first chapter, King Solomon calls attention to obeying one’s father. Subsequent to the New Covenant; that is to say Jesus’ finished works, it is understood that it also refers to our heavenly FATHER. And though Solomon also calls attention to obeying the laws of one’s mother, it is further understood that it pertains to the Holy Spirit through whom GOD writes HIS laws in the Believer’s heart and mind (Heb. 10:16) Altogether, the vision conveys that the Lord continues – through space and time – to open our understanding of the Word through the sacrosanct operations of the most Holy Trinity (Lk.24:45)
The fine dangling chains symbolize the Word destined to be invisibly worn about the hearts and minds of New Covenant Believers to live a godly life in an ungodly world. And it is the type of inner jewelry that also befits a heavenly-bound bride; the redeemed church that is growing in the beauty (I am hearing the word: “Splendor“) of spiritual wisdom, knowledge and understanding.
Splendor: Great Brightness or Luster – Brilliance – Magnificence (Merriam Webster Dictionary)
It is written that King Solomon – the author of the Book of Proverbs – reigned with wisdom, knowledge and understanding. Israel, under his rule, experienced abundant blessings and prosperity. His Name which means peaceful also conveyed that he reigned peacefully and with the least violence during the entire kingdom age. The likes of which had garnered the admiration and attention of the queen of Sheba and other kings. (1 King 10:4-9) Leaders are called, during these distressing days, to seek scriptural wisdom with the inner guidance of the Holy Spirit so that their nations can live peacefully and be blessed with godly prosperity. With GOD all things are possible.

This vision is yet another latter-day sign of the outpouring of the Holy Spirit. (Joel 2:28)
“…Surely I will pour out my spirit on you and I will make my words known to you.” (King Solomon in Prov. 1:23)
“Then will appear in heaven the sign of the Son of Man, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.” (Mat. 24:30)
A few months ago I was shown the earth encircled with clouds. (link appended below) Then a few days ago, I looked up and was shown a large sphere of bright Light encircled by misty white clouds again. In the first vision, I was in space with the Lord Jesus Christ looking down on the earth. In this second and recent vision, I was on earth looking up at the clouds.
This vision was immediately understood. The large sphere of bright Light symbolizes the Light of the World: Jesus Christ. The encircling clouds biblically symbolize heavenly saints who will return with the Lord of Lords and King of Kings following the seven-year of great tribulation. The clouds encircling the earth – on the other hand – represent earthly saints who are presently witnessing and who will, at some time in the future, also be numbered among those heavenly clouds destined to return with the Lord.
The vision was shown for two reasons. First, it is to encourage those saints who are witnessing to courageously continue in the work they have been called to fulfill during these days of darkness. The work does not stop here. You are being primed for an even greater work in accordance with GOD’s timetable and agenda! Seek to be found worthy and to be numbered among the returning clouds. Secondly, the vision was displaying that heaven is being mobilized for a time that might be more imminent than we know. For this reason, unbelievers and back slidden believers alike are called not to delay seeking repentance and salvation in the finished works of Jesus Christ.
There will come a time on earth – no one knows the day nor the hour – when saints might no longer be able to minister the Word because they will be caught in the air with the Lord forever:
“Then we who are alive, who are left, will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we will always be with the Lord.” (1 Thess. 4:17)
But GOD always has a plan, regardless of the timing of the “catching away” (pre-mid or post trib) there will remain bibles and study material that will be accessible; albeit underground. Hopefully this blog – and other genuine works – will survive the coming changes for the intent of confirming that a merciful GOD had been gracefully and incessantly calling nations to repentance and preparation. And though it will be a time of unprecedented upheaval on earth for new Christians considering the Antichrist’s agenda, salvation can still be found through the Lord Jesus Christ. This week people in Afghanistan are feeling the painful, brutish and evil sting of the Taliban who are attempting to turn the country to Islamic rule. The destructive effects of these dark and controlling governments will eventually consume the world through the Antichrist. The gate of time is narrowing.
“But watch yourselves lest your hearts be weighed down with dissipation and drunkenness and cares of this life, and that day come upon you suddenly like a trap. For it will come upon all who dwell on the face of the whole earth. But stay awake at all times, praying that you may have strength to escape all these things that are going to take place, and to stand before the Son of Man.” (Lk. 21:34-36)
In a vision some years ago I saw myself standing behind my closet door. The door suddenly became invisible. Someone in the shape of a human form and made of intense bright light stood on the other side. Suddenly his right hand stretched through the doorway and touched my chest. At the instant point of contact, I felt myself explode in all directions – for lack of a better explanation. The touch had been so powerful that upon coming out of the vision, I still felt lingering after-effects that can perhaps be compared to liquid electricity running through every molecule in my body.
In the book of Acts, we learn that there were Believers in the early church that were recognized as prophets and teachers. Among them were Silas and Barnabas. During a time of prayer and fasting, the church was counseled by the Holy Spirit to separate these two anointed ones for the Lord’s Service – to preach the Word. Scriptures recount that church members laid hands on them before sending them out ( Acts 13:4-5) It is an act of GOD through which the healing power of the Holy Spirit is transferred to others.
This vision is not to be confused with the baptism of the Holy Spirit which had taken place some years before. This vision importantly conveyed the laying of hands by the transfigured Jesus Christ (Mat. 17:1-3) – the Light of the world – the Right Hand of GOD – who manifested various times in the Old Testament and who appeared in the vision as a man of intense and glorious bright Light. (Jn.8:12)
“Who (Jesus) being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high.” (Heb. 1:3)
In those early years there was no understanding of the vision – I was still in the early stages of learning the Word. It was only later that I recognized and understood that the Lord had placed His healing, sanctifying and anointing right Hand on this Believer. And because the laying of hands was not accomplished by humans, it was clearly understood that this was a supernatural manifestation by the Lord Himself for the purpose of preaching His Word in accordance with the gifts of the Holy Spirit. (1 Cor.12:1-7) A divine transference had taken place on that fateful day, so many years ago.
This vision is shared during these latter days of the Holy Spirit’s outpouring to help others understand (I am hearing the Word: “learn”) that such supernatural occurrences really do happen and that they are biblical in nature. It is a manifestation that New Covenant Believers receive and experience through faith and belief in the finished works of Christ in accordance with His Divine Will. Not that the Lord’s call on a Believer needs to happen this way but it can and it does happen if the Lord wills it. The closet symbolizes a secret place of prayer; it is symbolic of the inner tabernacle wherein the most Holy Trinity meets and communicates with Believers. (1 Cor. 3:16)
“The Lord is my strength and song, and is become my salvation. The voice of rejoicing and salvation is in the tabernacles of the righteous: the right hand of the Lord is exalted: the right hand of the Lord doeth valiantly. I shall not die, but live, and declare the works of the Lord. ” (Ps. 118:14-17)
The Word “Remember” has been spoken twice during the reading of this message. It is a confirmation that the Holy Spirit has brought this vision to memory (Jn. 14:26) for the purpose of remembering that the Lord’s sanctifying touch – His anointing – continues to serve a powerful purpose, regardless of space, place and time.
May the love, grace and truth of Christ bless you today.
“Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.” (Jn. 15:13)
I came across the following verse this evening and was moved to include it in the appended and updated post written a couple of months ago. It is yet another confirmation that prayers ascend to GOD as a sweet-smelling aroma of Love because of Jesus Christ and Him crucified.
“And walk in love, as Christ also has loved us and has given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet smelling savour” (Eph. 4:2)
Alabama has been revealed recently – through the Holy Spirit – as a state that needed prayers. While praying for Alabama last week, a large, looming and very dark tornado was shown. There was a town or city nearby. Immediately, I prayed in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ that this thing be mitigated and pushed out of harm’s way. The tornado began moving from the left side on to the right side behind a populated area. Afterwards, while thinking about this vision and wondering whether it was symbolic or not, the following words were spoken: “Demons” and “Spirit” followed by: “Authority Daughter”. Then a few days ago while wondering if this thing had been pushed away, the word “Behind” was spoken.
This dark tornado was composed of a whirling mass of demons – legions of them! Why Alabama? I have no idea. But it certainly behooves the children of the most High GOD during these critical days to know and understand that HE does anoint and empower them with the authority to expel these things. (Eph.1:5; 1 Jn.12;13). And that we should exercise this authority when and as moved by the guidance of the Holy Spirit. In brief, when we pray under the Lord’s anointed authority, the destructive darkness of the evil one is expelled by the indwelling Christ – the Light within, the Light of the world! The Lord Himself does this powerful work in and through the Believer – and unless anointed, it can be a futile and dangerous battle. But prayer and praising the Lord affords protection for all faithful Believers.
The Spoken Word “Behind” as it relates to the evil one is disclosed in scriptures twice. When rebuking the devil in the wilderness, Jesus said: “Get Thee Behind Me Satan”. The Word “Behind” in this statement is most revealing considering that Jesus in the higher realms – as the creative Word and God from the beginnning (Jn.1:1-5) – made everything in existence, including Satan. (Jn.1:3; Col.1:16; 1 Cor.8:6; Jn.1:1-3) When Jesus spoke this admonishing phrase to the fallen one, He was reminding him of His identity as that Lord God – Satan was lower and truly “behind” Him. It can be discerned that the one who had been appointed to serve Him was in effect attempting to trip and trap Him in this lower world by enticingly subjugating Him to himself. Satan’s goal, from the time of the fall, was to aggrandize himself above GOD and advance his own kingdom of darkness on earth. And Jesus was a huge threat! Evenstill, he most likely did not know – and for good reason – that the sacrificial plan of redemption by which the world would be saved was waiting in the wings.
“And the devil, taking him (Jesus) up into a high mountain, shewed unto him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time. And the devil said unto him, All this power will I give thee, and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it. If thou therefore wilt worship me, all shall be thine. And Jesus answered and said unto him, Get thee behind me, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.” (Lk. 4:1-8)
Jesus spoke “Get Behind Me Satan” a second time through a misguided Peter. This time as Jesus was casting out Satan, He was also displaying to Peter His authority through the “Sword” of His mouth! (Spoken Word: Eph.6:17; Rev. 19:15). In this, He was showing Peter that he could and would empower him with the same authority. And since the implementation of the New Covenant, the indwelling Christ (2 Cor. 13:5) transfers the same authority to Holy-Spirit filled Believers to be His selected mouthpieces!
Scriptures prophesy that a wrathful Satan is foreshadowed to increase his attacks on a threatening latter-day remnant (Rev.12:12). Not surprising considering that the indwelling Light and Word in them will expose him; it is the greatest threat to his fallen kingdom. And though even the anointed are targeted – and the battle can be intense – they are greatly heartened to know that they have been granted legal authority over this dark one through the redeeming blood of the Lamb and the authority of His Spirit-filled Spoken Word. “Get Behind Me Satan”!
“And He (Jesus) said to them “I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven. Behold, I give you the authority (selected and annointed) to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you. Nevertheless do not rejoice in this, that the spirits are subject to you, but rather rejoice because your names are written in heaven.” (Lk.10:18-12)
