“For God so loved the world that He sent HIS only begotten Son so that whosoever shall believe in Him will have eternal life.” (Jn. 3:16)
A greater understanding of this verse is revealed when the Greek Word “in” Him also means “into” Him. Translated it means “motion into which” applies penetration of “union” for a purpose. That means that when we believe (accept with faith) that GOD sent His Son, His Spirit enters into us. And because our precious Lord resides in that place beyond space and time; that is to say eternity, we can experience eternity even while we are on earth because we are unified with Him.
“Teach these new disciples (followers of Jesus) to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” (Mat.28:20)
Jesus’ prayer to our FATHER revealing captures this truth:
“My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me.I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we areI in them and you in me—so that they may be brought to complete unity.Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me. **Father, I want those you have given me to be with me where I am, and to see my glory,** the glory you have given me because you loved me before the creation of the world. Righteous Father, though the world does not know you, I know you, and they know that you have sent me. I have made you known to them, and will continue to make you known in order that thelove you have for me may be in them and that I myself may be in them.” (Jn. 17:20-26)
“by their message” Strongs 3056: From lego; something said; by implication, a topic, also reasoning or motive; by extension, a computation; specially, the Divine Expression.
The Lord Jesus Christ wants Believers to acknowledge (Word of Knowledge) this eternal truth. During these latter days of lawlessness when the love of many is waxing cold, He wants to remind us of the FATHER’S Love so that we can experience His Presence in a deeper way and to greater degrees of glory. And this is the witness He wants to show the whole world so that unbelievers may also be brought into unity because of GOD’S glory and love that shines in us and through us. Indeed, for GOD so loved the world!
GOD’S Love iseternaland immeasurable. And we are immeasurably loved and blessed beyond space and time!
Keep the heart soft, let your light shine and keep the faith in Jesus’ finished works which He fulfilled with the greatest Love for our FATHER and for us. He came to this fallen world so that we might have life more abundant and life eternal.
“Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.” (Jn. 15:13)
A cupboard door opened and revealed a large container stacked with silver coins. All of them were engraved with moose antlers which are typically seen on the Canadian Quarter. But then the antlers either changed into wings or were displayed as wings.
This vision is all very symbolic but all very biblical in nature. Coins represent something of value. As a mathematical dividend, the number 25 contains the number 20 and 5. The number 20 on its own represents Redemption as does, within the context of this vision, the element Silver. On its own, the number 5 represents Grace. And the sum of 25 is obtained by multiplying 5 x 5. Put together the number 25 represents multiplied grace through GOD’S Plan of Redemption: “grace for grace.”
“Out of his fullness we have all received grace for grace (abundance) already given. For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ.…(1 Jn.16)
The antlers that appeared as wings on the coins are meaningful. A moose is the largest of the deer family (I didn’t know that). And both shed and regrow antlers every year. In brief, they represent Restoration and Regeneration through the Spirit of GOD. As wings, they also symbolize experiential times when the earthly is being transformed into the image of the heavenly – from greater to greater glory by GOD’S abundant Grace:
“And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.” (Jn.1:14)
“But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass (mirror) the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same imagefrom glory to glory (greater and greater) even as by the Spirit of the Lord the Holy Spirit made available by the Lord through His finished works) ” (2 Cor. 3:18)
I am hearing Words of Knowledge about Treasure and Strength. (After searching scripture for these words this morning, I marveled at the guidance of the following verses because they meaningfully confirm the vision.)
“But we have this treasure in earthen vessels(the Spirit of Christ), that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us. We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed; Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body. For we which live are always delivered unto death for Jesus’ sake, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our mortal flesh(restores, regenerates and transforms the inner man). So then death worketh in us, but life in you. We having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written,I believed, and therefore have I spoken; we also believe, and therefore speak; (truth spoken with faith and belief). Knowing that he which raised up the Lord Jesus shall raise up us also by Jesus(gloriously with symbolic wings) and shall present us with you. For all things are for your sakes, that the abundant GRACE (the multiplicity of the number 5 – grace upon grace) might through the thanksgiving of many redound to the GLORY of God.For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish yet the inward man is renewed day by day (again regenerated from greater to greater glory by GOD’S abundant grace). For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight (of eternal importance and value – coins) of GLORY; While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal. (Lk. 12: 7- 18)
This vision conveys the Believer’s heavenly-rewards after having faithfully walked through the stages of justification, progressive sanctification and ultimately to glorification when we shall see the Lord in glory as we ourselves have become! (1Jn.3:2) Until then, we like deer have been granted authority to climb and fly to higher places (in the Spirit) with Christ (I am hearing: Le Seigneur(the Lord)) to the shelter of greater revelation, understanding and safety. To that secret place where we are shielded from the influence of the world below. (Eph.2:5-7 & Ps.91)
“The LORD God is mystrength,and he will make my feet like hinds’ (deer)feet, and he will make me to walk upon mine high places(an elevation – spiritual and heavenly realms)…” (Hab. 3:19)
“For in the resurrection they neither marry nor are given in marriage, but are like angels (wings symbolic of glorified bodies) in heaven.” (Mat. 22:30)
All Believers will encounter hardships on earth during a lifetime but I am encouraging you to persevere in the Lord. It will exponentially bless you with spiritual and eternal dividends. GOD’S spiritual economy – not man’s earthly economy – works in transformative and wondrous ways!
Praise GOD and thank you for your abundant grace and glory. Thank you for your Holy Spirit who regenerates and transforms us into your Son’s image, our Lord God Jesus Christ!
“Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal; but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your heart is there also will be your treasure” (Mat. 6:19-21) (Cf. Mat.25:14-30)
At 3:00 a.m. I was shown a vision and instructed to disclose it.
A dark ominous sign was shown twice. Suddenly a map extending from Mexico downward through Panama including Columbia and the Northern tip of South America was shown. Small circles appeared over some of these regions.
There are people from around the world who read here. And if you live in these regions, I would highly recommend that you turn to the Lord in repentance, pray for guidance and seek refuge in Him.
Rhema: Spoken revelation from the Word that activates the Spirit in the Believer. It is a miraculous assurance, persuasion and conviction of what needs to be known.
Recently I have been thinking and praying about the bothersome and disturbing things that come up against Believers assigned with particular missions. The answer came this morning when the following Words were spoken in another language: “It Is Written.” It instantly reminded me of the same words Jesus uttered 3 times to the devil when he harassed and tempted Him in the desert.
The first time took place when the devil counseled a hungry Jesus to turn stones into bread. “But He answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone but by very Word that proceeds out of the Mouth of GOD.” (Mat. 4:4) (Cf. Deut 8:3)
The second time took place when the devil supernaturally carried Jesus to the highest temple pinnacle and told the Lord to jump off. Jesus replied: “… it is written again you shall not tempt the Lord your God.” (Mat. 4:7)
The third time took place when, once more, the devil took him to an exceedingly high mountain and told Him he could have all the kingdoms of the world if He would worship him. A third time Jesus replied, “Get thee hence, Satan for it is written, you shall worship the Lord your God, and Him only shall you serve. Then the devil left Him and behold Angels came and ministered unto Him.” (Mat. 4:10)
Had Jesus fallen for the devil’s clever ruses, He would not have fulfilled His earthly mission of salvation and the fallen dark cherub would now be in complete control of this planet. So it is even today that the devil attempts to trip and trap called out Believers to abandon their mission work. Not surprising that even the written Word will be used against them as seen in satan when he tempted Jesus to commit suicide: “It is written he shall give his Angels charge concerning You and in their hands shall they bear you up…” (4:6)
This morning’s message is addressed to many of you who are experiencing battles in higher and lower places. (Eph. 6:12) I am encouraging you to be very discerning during these latter days, to don on the Armor and to pray for guidance at all times. Satanic ruses are clever and can be subtle. Some under this influence will come against you (at times with good intentions believing it is GOD’S Will) not only with the written Word but also with misplaced religious convictions and supernatural manifestations to dissuade you and knock you off course. It’s a fight to put to death the work in you. It’s a battle of sword against ‘Sword’; I am hearing Sword of Righteousness! But the Holy Spirit who lives in you will show you things and speak Words ofRighteousness He hears from the mouth of the living Word because of His finished works on the Cross. This morning the Spoken Word “forgive“ also echoed from the sharp edge of the living blade. Indeed forgive these people and even pray for them because they know not what they do. (Mat. 5:43-48) Believe and be convinced that wielding the Sword in accordance with the call and Will of GOD in conformity with the Word and Spirit of Truth helps make you impenetrable to satanic onslaughts!

All things that the Father hath are mine: therefore said I, that he shall take of mine, and shall shew it unto you.” (Jn. 16:13-14)

Praise GOD and thank you Lord Jesus Christ.
Keep the Faith. We overcome by the blood of the Lamb!
It is written that the Holy Spirit brings all things to our remembrance. This took place yesterday when a dream from 9 months’ ago entitled “People Lost at Sea” was brought back to mind. It fits so well in meaning with the dream “Underground Harvest” that I am moved to post both messages with appended links.
The Woman in white who drifted ashore from the sea symbolize some in the Church body who will make it out of the satanic turbulent waters and who will form part of the great latter day harvest. Significantly, human birth follows 9 months of gestation. The timing of these dreams are significant because it symbolically means that those who have drifted to shore will finally rest, recover and be restored in the newness of the spiritual birth. (Jn. 3:1-21) It’s often said that GOD’S delays are not HIS denials; hence the importance of continued faith in the finished works of Jesus Christ and patience in all things.
“In your patience possess ye your soul”. (Lk. 21:19)
I am excited this morning because more was revealed about the previously-posted message relating to the underground harvest being dragged out of the sea. It is said that a picture is worth a thousand words but then so is one Word worth a thousand more Words. Yesterday during prayer, words of knowledge were spoken that will be kept private. But what caught my attention, in part, was a particular Word: “Rainbow”. Following a Bible study on the subject, I heard in the Spirit: “Minister“.
In the first book of the Bible (Genesis Chapter 9) the Word “Rainbow” is repeated by GOD three times placing a strong emphasis upon this sign as a certainty of His Covenant with His people. After leaving the ark, GOD declared the following covenant to Noah which is prophetic in nature:
“…. “This is the sign of the covenant which I make between Me and you, and every living creature that is with you, for perpetual generations: I set My rainbow in the cloud, and it shall be for the sign of the covenant between Me and the earth.It shall be, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the rainbow shall be seen in the cloud; and I will remember My covenant which is between Me and you and every living creature of all flesh; the waters shall never again become a flood to destroy all flesh. The rainbow shall be in the cloud, and I will look on it to remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is on the earth.” And God said to Noah, “This is the sign of the covenant which I have established between Me and all flesh that is on the earth.” (Gen. 9:12-17)
GOD who foreknew everything from beginning to end, does not need to see and remember, HE is omnipresent and omnipotent! These verses mean that HE would “see” would “look” (witness) a time in the last days when a different flood would take place; it prophetically pointed to the Serpent’s work against HIS people. In preparation for this, HE already had a Plan, a Covenant and a Rainbow that would be in place for them.
In the last book of the Bible (Revelation) we learn about a great Angel who is crowned with the authority of the Rainbow. He makes a roaring appearance coinciding with a time of upheaval, plague and destruction on earth. I am hearing during a time of “a thousand deaths“. (Symbolic number of those who have and will lose their lives spiritually and physically.)
“And I saw another mighty Angel come down from heaven, clothed with a cloud: and a rainbow was upon his head, and his face was as it were the sun, and his feet as pillars of fire: And he had in his hand a little book open: and he set his right foot upon the sea, and his left foot on the earth, And cried with a loud voice, as when a lion roareth: and when he had cried, seven thunders uttered their voices. And when the seven thunders had uttered their voices, I was about to write: and I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Seal up those things which the seven thunders uttered, and write them not. And the Angel which I saw stand upon the sea and upon the earth lifted up his hand to heaven, And sware by him that liveth for ever and ever, who created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which are therein, that there should be time no longer: But in the days of the voice of the seventh Angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets.” (Rev. 10:1-7)
This Angel is none other than the Lord Jesus Christ holding the Word of Truth in His Hand as a testimony. The mighty Son of Salvation, crowned with the authority of the Rainbow and roaring with the Voice of the Lion of the Tribe of Judah. The One who, also having great wings of an Eagle, will “Guide” the Woman and her “seed” to safety during a time of satanic deluge. The Woman who, although identified as Israel, also includes a scattered remnant presently located throughout all nations. (Micah 4:6-7; Gal. 3:29; Rev. 11:11-31) This seed spoken to Noah at the beginning in the first Book of Genesis is prophetically echoed in the latter days in the last Book of Revelation:
“And behold I will establish my covenant with you and **your seed** after you…” (Gen. 9:9)
“And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent. And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood. And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast out of his mouth. And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with **the remnant of her seed ** which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.” (Rev. 12:14-17)
The earth has opened its mouth! It is the sacrificial blood that flowed – and I am hearing continues to flow – as a testimony in the mouths of witnesses on earth who proclaim the New Covenant and Word. A covenant is established between two parties and is contingent upon certain actions. Jesus Christ, glorious and holy Son of GOD our FATHER, did His part on our behalf when He hung on that sacrificial Cross. Yet it is not enough to say that we are in Covenant with GOD. This awesome truth must be honored and lived. Jesus emphatically instructed His followers about the importance of keeping His commandments – His Word – which are written in the Book of Truth: the Holy Bible. Most specifically He requested that His followers keep His commandments of Love which encodes all other commandments. He overtly declared that the Holy Spirit would be sent not only because of His sacrifice but also to those who love Him and keep His Word. (Jn. 14:15-18; Mk. 12:30-31). This third Person of the Holy Trinity cannot be divided from the Word which was written under divine inspiration. And in this hour, more than ever, the Holy Spirit is needed in all ways!
Sadly, many have slid back and others are unconsciously back sliding in the darkness of the fallen nature (vision). There are some who proclaim Jesus Christ yet refuse to keep His instructions and live their lives accordingly. Many are blindly lollygagging in untruth and unbelief to justify earthly desires. Many more are those who repent not realizing it is in shallowness of the fallen nature. Most tragically, multitudes are falling by the wayside! (Spoken Words) Scriptures teach that (in comparison to the world population) few will find the narrow way and enter. (Mat. 7:14).
There is only one way to safety during the raging waves of the satanic flood. It is through the New Covenant of Salvation upon which all other covenants have been ratified. Significantly, the name Noah means to “rest” and “repose”. It points to the importance of resting in the Lord’s finished works despite what happens in the turbulence and deceptions of the outside world. I am also hearing the importance of prayers during this hour!
The remnant is called to be securely positioned and resting in Christ.
To be in Blood Covenant with the Lord is to be in the Rainbow! (Jn. 17:20-26)
Two days ago In a dream, I heard a sound and felt strong vibrations. My senses were heightened and the dream appeared like it was unfolding in real time. Next, I am hovering over the ocean and I am observing something being dragged out from the bottom. The sound became louder. Suddenly, a helicopter powerfully bolted out from under the water and deposited something onto a large dock. And there on the dock standing straight up were bundles of wheat! Some stalks were tall, some stalks were medium in size and others were shorter. I curiously wondered how wheat could have become stuck on the ocean floor. And as though my question was being addressed, the dream continued. Next, I find myself standing underground (somewhere in or under the sea) looking inside a chamber that contained something dark. I peeked through the door and saw a dark herculean-sized serpent. As though protected by Divine Providence, I felt no fear. My answer was shown and the scene confirmed what was known all along. End of dream.
Helicopters, unlike planes, conduct more specialized assignments. Among other functions, they are used in the military and for search and rescue missions. Unlike planes they have a minimal of two revolving blades positioned at the top. From a biblical perspective, they represent the sharp double-edged Sword and living Word of GOD operating in the spirit realm (Heb. 4:12). And this was the sound I recognized and heard in the Spirit.
Briefly, these helicopters emblematically represent the angels who fulfill GOD’S Word. (Ps. 103:20-21) They also point to spirit-filled ministries and witnesses who work in synergy with the angels during the final harvest. From a biblical perspective, the sea represents the fallen prostituted system of this present world, led by corrupted governmental and religious leaders and populated by people from all nations. (Rev. 17:15; Ps 2) From these nations, Believers symbolized as wheat are being harvested during the end times to populate the New Kingdom. And despite being in close proximity to the Serpent’s influence, they continued to persevere in the faith and have reached different levels of spiritual maturation (different size of wheat stalks).
This is yet another dream pointing to these latter days. Spirit-filled ministries, witnesses and angelic hosts are busy in the harvest fields which will eventually coincide with the coming great and dreadful day of the Lord. The battle for souls will become even more fierce in coming days because the angered and worried Serpent knows his time is drawing short. Yet, at the time of this dream he was shown as being temporarily sequestered (in a chamber); most likely until the angels complete their assignments and GOD’S plan is fulfilled up to a specific time. His influence, although presently very strong, is nonetheless still limited. But as the Word teaches, he will be released from his contained quarters. And having even greater wrath, all of hades will break loose with him – it will be an unprecedented time of evil and of upheaval on planet earth. But as the learned faithful know, it will also herald a coming time when the Lord will make His supreme appearance as the Lion of Judah. Then He will destroy the wicked with the breathing Sword of His mouth and the unfathomable brightness of His glory: His glorious countenance. (2 Thess. 2:8)
We are still living in days when many can become heirs of the New Kingdom. And it makes sense that GOD has put a merciful pause on ‘time’ so that all who are being called will hear and be converted. Nonetheless, time runs….
“Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.” (2 Cor. 5:17)
This morning the Word “Removed“ was spoken. Immediately, I was shown a large winter shovel hovering in the air. It was a winter scoop and it was being maneuvered by invisible hands. As the scoop elevated to dump its contents, I noticed that it contained a pile of debris and rubble.
Later this morning, someone sent me aftermath pictures of storms that recently struck Canada and of deadly tornadoes that sadly and tragically ripped across Kentucky and other American states. As I looked at the debris and the rubble that accompanied these devastating and destructive storms, the Holy Spirit began to stir this morning’s vision.
On a different level of understanding, the vision conveyed that faithful and persevering Believers who have weathered storms and tempestuous winds in past years have come through the other side and will experience restitution, restoration, repossession and recovery! (Spoken Words) Mistakes, hindrances, disappointments, heartaches, offenses, conflicts and all other debris that have caused many not to enter into the Lord’s rest and favor have been, are being and will be removed! A hedge of protection has also been placed around some of these faithful and ‘little’ ones (vision)!
A new season is beginning for enduring Christians whose gazes have been and is still heavenward, onGOD! A wise and timely aspiration when considering one’s salvation and what is taking place in the world currently and in coming days! The Hands moving the shovel were invisible. It means that it is the Lord’s mighty Hands that does the removing when and how HE sees fit! Our role was to have remained obedient to HIS Will and Word during the storms. To have continued living that spirit-filled life during the tempest. To have genuinely repented if repentance was required. To have continued to prayerfully and expectantly speak hopeful things in the face of adversity. To have never stopped believing that GOD faithfully responds to prayers that are in conformity with HIS Divine Will and in accordance with HIS timing. And to have kept the faith at all times!
Praise GOD, Praise GOD! Believers who waited on the Lord will increasingly begin to arise with even more determination, strength, resilience and clarity from seasons of storms and battles!
“..as it is written, “I have made you a father of many nations” in the presence of Him whom he believed—God, who gives life to the dead and calls those things which do not exist as though they did; Who against hope believed in hope, that he might become the father of many nations, according to that which was spoken, So shall thy seed be.” (Rom. 4:17-18)
“For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Beremoved and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, (when we place our faith in the indwelling Lord and not on self – it is really Him who removesmountains) he will have whatever he says (when we live in conformity with GOD’S Will in accordance with HIS plan of salvation) Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.” (Mk 11:23-24)
(With infinite thanksgiving to you Lord Jesus Christ, eternal honored Son of our FATHER for blessings received!) ~
“I will praise the name of God with a song; I will magnify him with thanksgiving. This will please the Lord more than an ox or a bull with horns and hoofs. Let the oppressed see it and be glad; you who seek God, let your hearts revive! (Ps. 69:32)
Always keep the Faith in the Lord’s Finished Works! It will bless you! It will revive your hearts!
Yesterday while thinking about a snowstorm that we are expecting here in northern Canada and in other provinces, the following Words were clearly spoken:
“PREPARE FOR THAT, PREPARE FOR THE SEASON”.
According to the Farmer’s Almanac, this might be an unusual winter season. In any case, considering everything else that is taking place in the West and around the world presently, I am not taking this message lightly and am moved to share this for your benefit as well.
“However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come.” (Jn. 16: 13)
In an early morning vision on December 6, I was shown my two crystal candlesticks with white candles that sit on a table in front of a mirror in my home. The candles were lit and the candlesticks were, interestingly, glowing bright from the inside. Below on the bottom shelf of the table sits two small silver Christmas evergreen Trees. (Considering the interpretation of some visions, I wondered at times if the Holy Spirit unconsciously moved me to place objects in particular positions because they become so significant in meaning after the visions are shown. I will venture to say, “Yes He did and Yes He still does!”
The Light is first and foremost the Lord Jesus Christ – the Light of the world sent by the FATHER to destroy the works of the devil through the finished works of the Cross. (Jn. 8:12; 1 Jn. 3:8) It follows that the Light of one candle represents the Word of the Lord and the other lit candle represents the Holy Spirit of Truth made available to us through Him. (Light in my visions and dreams represent GOD’S truth and life.)
“…..This is the word of the LORD(the living Word) unto Zerubbabel, saying, Not by might, nor by power (the might and power of men), but by my spirit(the Holy Spirit) saith the LORD of hosts.” (Zech. 4:6)
Briefly said, the two candles represent the Living Word and the Holy Spirit of Truth that indwell redeemed Believers down below on earth (the silver trees below the candles). A mirror reflects your person on the exterior. But on a more profound level these two Lights, together, allow Believers to see the interior state of their souls reflecting back at them. Do not despair at the flaws and imperfections that might reflect back at you for they will disappear and be transformed in the rectifying Light of His truth when we allow the Word and the Holy Spirit to do their work. All of us, regardless of how much knowledge and wisdom we have accrued or spiritual milestones we might have reached, will experience this continued work of progressive sanctification until the time we are glorified. Albeit, we all have uniquely grown and reached different levels of spiritual maturity.
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. In Him(Jesus Christ) was life, and the life was the light of men.” (Jn. 1-6) Cf. “To them God willed to make known what are the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles: which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.” (Col. 1:27)
“Thy word have I hid **in mine heart**, that I might not sin against thee.” (Ps. 119:11)
“Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the **Holy Spirit who is in you** whom you have from God, and you are not your own?” (1 Cor. 3:16)
Candlesticks or holders keep candles securely positioned in place and are also used when the candles are transported and moved. Briefly said, the glowing candlesticks symbolize our legal position and standing with GOD when we place our faith in His Son and in His finished works. It is a position that is based solely on the merit of Christ and never because of our own works. It also means that wherever we are moved to go and whatever works we are guided to accomplish In His Service, the Light of Truth which gives Life goes with us.
“Your word is a lamp to my feet. And a light to my path.“ (Ps.119:105)
In real life, a bright red Christmas Bow is affixed on top and in the middle of the mirror. Red symbolizes the redeeming crimson blood of Jesus Christ. (Is.1:18; 1 Jn.1:9) And Christmas within the context of the vision, symbolizes His birth in born-again Believers. Finally, the Bow represents the New Covenant heavenly bond and tie between GOD the FATHER – through HIS Son – with HIS redeemed trees of righteousness below on earth (Is. 61:3 Cf. Jn. 3:1-21).
“But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;) And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:(our earthly and heavenly affiliation with GOD. That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus. 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. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.” (Eph. 2:4-9)
[Some readers have asked if the two candles and sticks (shown in a previous vision) represent the two candlesticks (the two witnesses) of Revelation 11:4. It would only be my opinion if I were to answer that question at this point. And I would be greatly remiss to misinterpret the Book of Revelation.]
Keep the Faith and rejoice over the Gift that is in you!
