A Prophetic Vision
Recently in a vision I was shown as being targeted in the enemy’s dark cross hairs. After prayer and seeking for understanding, the enemy was symbolically revealed in another vision to be in the shape of a man silhouetted in the most profound blackness and against an ominous dark and eerie red background. (The Word “monster” is being spoken.) Praise GOD for the gift of discernment! The visions caused me to be alerted but not fearful. Since then I have been praying for guidance and protection. My prayers were answered yesterday when I was awakened from sleep to hear “I Am Here”. They were powerful, affirming and yet calm and soothing words spoken from my immediate right side and close to my head. I had the strongest impression of someone standing there and with that I immediately fell back into a deep comfortable sleep. In real life this area displays my bedroom lamp, a white candle in a silver candlestick with a crystal heart, one of many Bibles and my keys – all significant in meaning.
‘I AM’s Identity
The Voice on my right side belonged to none other than the Lord Jesus Christ who identified Himself 7 times in the Book of John as being the great “I AM”. (Jn. 6:35, 41, 48, 51; Jn. 8:12; Jn 10:7,9; Jn. 10, 11, 14; Jn 11:25; Jn 14:6 and Jn 15: 1, 5) In brief, He is the great I AM who existed before all things were created. (Jn. 8:48). I AM is: the Bread of Life; the Light of the World; the Door; the Great Shepherd; the Resurrection of Life; the Way, the Truth and the true Vine. And, importantly, One whose Voice is recognized by His Sheep:
“I am the good shepherd..….My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.” (Jn 10:11-28)
The ‘Right Hand’ of Power
I have set the Lord continually before me; Because He is at my right hand, I will not be shaken.” (Ps. 16:8)
In Psalm 110, King David further describes the FATHER’S Son, our Lord, as being positioned to HIS right side It is an authoritative and forceful position and Psalm that describes the Lord’s sovereign empowerment over all nations (and the heavens – Mat. 28:18). It further describes Him as striking adversarial kings during His day of wrath. One whom no one else on earth and in the fallen realms of the spirit should ever want to confront in this particular warring role and capacity. And praise GOD, only heaven’s King and Lord is empowered to destroy that monster (the serpent, the dragon and leviathan) whose spirit of darkness expresses itself into political, economic and religious rulers who subject their fallen influences on the faithful. (Is. 51:9, Ez. 29:3, Ps. 74:13) In brief, I had been shown in dark symbolic form the devil. But praise GOD and thank you Jesus Christ for your guardianship, presence and omnipotent intervention.
Faithful Christians are not immune to satanic attacks; especially during this time in history when the monster’s spirit and legions are imposing their dark influences on an individual and global level. Especially targeted are genuine souls who have been called in service to the Lord. But GOD our FATHER sees it all! And in the midst of this apostasy, the great Shepherd protects and guides His flock – He makes His Voice known. Praise GOD! HE does not leave us defenseless! HE has, furthermore, gifted us with the Holy Spirit through HIS Son and left us HIS Word so that we can keep our candles of discernment and righteousness lit. We are called to be fortified in HIS knowledge (keys) and to remain in the Light (truth) of Holy Writ (Lamp/Bible). (Ps. 119:105) And because these days are taxing Believers in so many ways and on so many levels, it is critically essential that we remain prayerfully connected to the loving heart of GOD (the crystal heart). Being ever loving, HE is reminding us that the enemy cannot pluck us out of the great Shepherd’s mighty Hand – he cannot overcome an overcomer!
In brief, the vision is confirming events that are taking shape to happen and which coincides with the gathering together with the Lord in the air (1 Thess. 4:16-17). We are getting imminently close to unfolding prophecies. Until then, we are called to be watchful and to occupy but never shaken in mind nor troubled but to be found resting in the Lord. He’s got this!
“Now, brethren, concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to Him, we ask you, not to be soon shaken in mind or troubled, either by spirit or by word or by letter, as if from us, as though the day of Christ had come. Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and **the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition** who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.” (2 Thess. 2:1-5)
“……lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.” (Mat. 28;20)
