We are in His hands! Something to celebrate!

Sounding the trumpet!  And I enjoy giving words of encouragement to the body of Christ.  It’s not about me; it’s about our Savior.  Don’t follow me; I run into walls.  Thank you for visiting.  God bless, Donna Sikes

John 13:34 kjv – A new commandment I give unto you.  That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another



Jesus is the door – 5-27-20


On the night of March 12, 2018, my dreams were all about rapture. All I remembered was the door.  I saw a door open and I heard ‘almost home’.  I saw a door open and I heard ‘catch away’.

If you’ll notice, the door in this picture has to be opened from the inside.

Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep.  All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear them.  I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.    John 10:7-9



The Light is Green – September 2015


This goes with the unprecedented prayers post.  Reposting 5-26-20

In September of 2015, I kept feeling an earthquake was coming, waking in the night with it on my mind. I searched the Web for a scientific reason. I came to realize it was more of a shaking that was coming.  Hebrews 12:27
Around September 16, 2015, I dreamed I was standing in front of a man in a black suit. I didn’t see his face. He took my hands and swung them out and back again as he sang ‘I have my faith in the condemnation’. When I sang along, it was so loud it woke me. I looked up condemnation on the Web and saw ‘Romans 8 You Tube’, a beautiful reading of Romans 8.
Another day I had my eyes closed and a mushroom cloud appeared in the distance. I thought ‘why am I seeing a bomb’? I had never had visions before until September of 2015.
I had seen a calendar in a vision showing the 21st at the end of the week. On December 21st, 2017, on a Thursday, the UN voted to not hold to Trump’s claim that Jerusalem is now the capital of Israel and no other.
Shortly after, I had another vision. I had been reading on my nook but got tired so I put it down and closed my eyes a minute. Immediately I saw a traffic light on the right turn green and traffic flowed. Then on the left I saw a man dressed in black with black shoes walk up a long flight of white steps to huge columns at the top. I only saw him from the back. I think it was the same man that sang when this all started. I didn’t see a building with those long steps, just the steps and columns that led to what would be a temple or capitol. I felt something had happened that made the light green for the rise to power. On January 2, 2016, I saw a picture pop up on the Internet that looked like the structure in my vision. It was even the same view of it that I saw.  The man had started walking up the right side of the step going toward the left as he walked up.  I asked someone what is that? They said the seat of satan. I asked what on earth is the seat of satan? A friend sent me the history of it. I looked it up further and found Revelation 2:12-14. Another name for the place is pergamon. You can look up the history of Pergamon.  Hitler replicated it to give his speech and there are videos showing where Obama did the same. Whatever was happening to turn that light green wasn’t good, and that was obvious.

Warnings – September 2015


This goes with the unprecedented prayers post.  Reposting 5-26-20

September 21, 2015, I woke at 4:23am after a dream. I had been noticing a lot of 23’s in the times I would see. I’m not into numerology but these 23’s kept popping up. I was off all technology. The dream I had just had was so hard to put on paper that at first I put it in shorthand on a note card so no one else could read it. It took a while for me to put it on the notepad I had bought. This is the dream.
I was in the back seat of a car as the driver took me to a house. A young man and a young woman stood at the road to greet me. Something had happened out in the world. I stepped out of the car and hugged the young man and called him brother. The young woman was smoking one after the other obsessively and she never spoke throughout the dream nor did she hug me. The young man made reference to the young woman about smoking and asked why she did that and why couldn’t she stop. There was a funeral coming up and she was expected to be there but wasn’t going. We walked into the house and into a kitchen where I remember food on the cabinets like people bring to your house when there’s been a death. A minister I know told the woman that he didn’t understand why she wouldn’t go to seal the final decree. I kept thinking she could take care of final things later and defended her because I thought it was just too hard for her to go into the church. I thought they were talking about final funeral arrangements being settled. The young woman and young man stood at the counter while the minister sat at a table with papers and pen. The minister looked up and asked her if she was going to the church and he mentioned a graveside. When the young woman did not speak, the minister looked at the young man and very sternly asked, ‘why is she not going to the church?’ The young man said, ‘she is of the church of satan’s love’. The minister turned and looked me square in the eyes, ‘satan has shown us a lot of love here today’. Then a small innocent looking little boy dressed in a white robe with I think a white sash around his waist walked up to the minister. The boy didn’t speak and had no expression as he stood there and stared. He then began to walk around the minister. The minister’s stare followed the little boy as he said, ‘you showed us a lot of love here today’. Then I woke up. I was so disoriented I couldn’t think of what I was supposed to be doing. That feeling followed me for a while.
In looking back on the dream, the little boy was symbolic of an adult that is a religious figure that shows innocence and sweetness to people, but his actions and his heart are not good. That much I knew. The young man tried to correct the young woman, but she wouldn’t listen.  He was a child of God, a follower of Christ.  I called him brother.  I wasn’t sure if the woman was actually a woman or a symbol of our country. I know the statue of liberty is from ISIS – Ishtar. The minister was warning me about the young woman and the little boy. He made sure I knew not to trust them. She is silent and he acts innocent. They will show a lot of love but beware, they are not what they seem. I understood this dream more on the 23rd. (Note: I later learned in April of 2017 that when a woman is spoken of in bible prophecy it is usually speaking of the church. There will be false doctrine taught in the church, as it has already begun. In June of 2017 I was reading bible.org where smoke in Revelation usually relates to judgment, doom, and torment. Many verses in Revelation stood out as I read. For Revelation 19, Matthew Poole’s Commentary says ‘As the church proceeded in her praises, so God proceeded in his judgments upon the great whore, until she was ruined past recovery.’ And Rev 14:11 speaks of the smoke of their torment will go up forever and ever.  I learn more as time goes by.  To God be the glory.

On September 23, while on the technology fast, I felt the need to call some people I pray with.  I’d been waking up seeing  23 and it was the 23rd.  It weighed heavy on me.  I’ve never had anything to do with numerology but this was significant.  One of the people I was going to call, actually called me as I picked up my phone.  He said he had tried to call me two days prior to tell me the pope was coming to America.  He couldn’t get through to my cell which was odd, but he knew I was heavy in prayer and felt the prayer was more important than the purpose so he didn’t try to reach me after that.  There is a bible meaning for 23 which is death.

On the 26th, a life-long friend called and said the leaders had met at ground zero the day before and she was disturbed that Jesus was never mentioned by any of the delegates from countries that started the UN.

Unprecedented Prayers – 5-26-20


I thank God every day for His provision and protection, and if not for His amazing grace, I can’t even imagine.  His love is something we can’t comprehend.  I experienced it in a dream one night and it woke me up.  The love extending from Him to me was overwhelming.  He also warns us in love at times to pray.  He sometimes tells us who to pray for or what to pray about.  That with his Word shows us how important our prayers are.

There are some out there experiencing a false love.  I was waking up on May 25, 2020, and a flash scene came before me and I heard ‘unprecedented prayers’.  I have heard the word ‘unprecendented’ a lot lately so I can see it would take ‘unprecedented prayers’.  It was a scene where I don’t remember details but I knew it was about a false love being extended to people.  For instance, a person needing love that feels that lack in their life, is being offered something that looks amazing.  A love that fills the lack of a need or a want that can sometimes be harmful.  From what I saw, I took it to mean, be alert and pray without ceasing like never before.  Be aware of your family members and what they are into.  Educate them on what we used to say ‘all that glitters is not gold’.

Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of His might.  Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.  For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.  Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.  Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; and your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.  And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God: Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, which is the world of God: Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;

Ephesians 6:10-18

(I took this picture.  It reminded me of a huge, strong angel in God’s army)

My Grandmother ‘Esther’ – 5-24-20


I sat on these church benches with my grandmother ‘Esther’ over sixty years ago.  I don’t even know the exact age of this bench.  It holds a very special place on my porch today as a reminder of her love.  I would stand behind her rocking chair and comb her gray hair as she talked.  She was a woman of more smiles than words, but when we were alone she would talk.  The only things of God that I remember in her words were ‘they will try to put a mark on you one day, don’t take it’.  The things I remember in her actions are so many.  A few are – don’t have any idols in your life but God, if it is wrong don’t do it, and keep a respectful tongue around the children (her words to my grandfather).  The planter was my oldest aunt’s.  She took after my grandmother as far as more smiles than words.  God bless the nurturing spirit.

Proverbs 31:25-27

Strength and honour are her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come.  She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness.  She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness.

Believe 5-21-20


The Christmas ornament in this picture came from a charity in the mail with another one like it a few years ago.  After Christmas I packed the tree ornaments away.  One of these ornaments showed up in the house later so I put it over a picture.  The other one showed up after that one so I put it over something too.  They still hang in the house.

These are reminders for anyone that comes through the door.  They are reminders that we need to believe now more than ever.  We are at, what is being called, the ‘new normal’.  I keep hearing that everywhere I go now.  The latest was at the teller window at the bank.  She was wearing a mask and said this is the new normal for when we open the lobby.

I had a vision of a playful scene when things went haywire in Hawaii and heard the words ‘things will never be the same again’.  I knew it didn’t just mean Hawaii.  I have held on to that with the belief that we are in God’s hands.  Fear and faith can’t reside together.  The Lord has been warning many of us of the devastation that has come and some still to come.  Destruction comes in forms other than rockets and missiles.

We can’t force anyone to believe, but the shakings from God can.  This is why believers pray for God’s peace at this time.  We know He has to do what He has to do.  We see the chaos, but we sit in our secret place with the Lord and listen for ‘His’ voice.

Some scriptures that I came across this week are very encouraging.  I don’t usually just read the verse but the chapter.  This Book was given to us for our walk with the Lord.  I came to realize the words are alive and resonating in our spirit as we read.  They give encouragement and sometimes they are the rod.  I’m thankful for the rod as well as the staff.

Jesus is the only one that could have cast a stone but he didn’t.  It is very encouraging that He does not condemn but gives life.  John 8

We rejoice as we are clothed with garments of salvation and the robe of righteousness.    Isaiah 61

He is our light and as we walk with Him in truth we fellowship with one another.  This is our God’s tender mercy whereby the day spring from on high hath visited us.  Luke 1

I think often how God has shown so much to those in the dessert places or shut up in prisons.  Hence, we sit alone with Him.  What stands out to me in Jeremiah 39 is when the Lord says that He will bring His words upon the city of evil and not for good.  He will deliver him in that day and not into the hand of the men he feared.  He will not fall by the sword because of His trust in Him.

In Isaiah 43  – When you pass through the waters, I will be with you.  They won’t sweep over you.  When you walk through the fire you won’t be burned.

His grace is sufficient and His strength made perfect in our weakness.  Thank God for the perfect shepherd; we don’t want for anything.  So grateful for the green pastures, the still waters, the restoration of our soul, and the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake.  We walk through the valley but fear no evil for He walks with us.  2 Corinthians 12, Psalm 23

I had a vision awhile back where He said to hang on to God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.  There was an urgency about it.  God bless you and yours as you walk with our Shepherd in His guiding light.  Be not shaken with the things of this world as He transforms us and renews our minds to dwell on Him.  He has shown me He is with us in these storms, so with us He is.  I pray that you take comfort in that.

The Vineyard – 5-18-20

IMG_3542 (1)

A sphere of activity, field of endeavor.  It is so amazing to see such a battle in the world today.  A battle we read about.  A battle we knew was coming.  And a battle in which we know the outcome.  That in itself gives courage and strength as we walk in faith with the Lord.

The war is against God.  It is against His Son.  It is against the seed.  And you are a warrior in it.  You have on armor.  I know, it’s as strange as strange can be if you don’t think about it in the spirit and from God’s perspective.  But you are already in a war.  Some of you have been for a very long time.  You have weapons.  You hold up a sword everyday.  You wear a helmet and a breastplate.  Is that not awesome.

You hear the battle cry in the night and you hear it in the day.  You are an army of so many.  We walk shoulder to shoulder yet we live in different states or different countries even.  It will literally blow your mind when you stop to think about it.

We run low on ammo and sit before God and King on bended knee with our heads bowed low and our swords pointed in the ground.  The light that never ends and never runs low comes over us and refuels.  It recharges.  It sloughs away the hurt words, the shunned attitudes.  It gives strength to know our loved ones gone on in this battle are with the Lord, and the ones still fighting are strong in courage.

We rise from bended knee charged again for the battle with our eyes on the victory.

God bless us all as we walk shoulder to shoulder in our armor, hearing His voice.  We are blessed.
