The Dark Road to Recovery – 12-17-19

IMG_0044 (1)

I have been praying for a young lady very dear to my heart.  I have tried so hard to figure out just where things keep going wrong.  She seems to be headed in the right direction and the next thing I know, she’s veered off again.  She never quite finishes what she needs to get her on the right path, and it is so crucial that she does because this is not just about her.  She has precious children that need her. My heart aches for them, and for her.

On December 17, 2019, I believe the Lord showed me in a dream what is happening with her and so many others.  In the dream, she was being driven in a car at night.  She was in the front passenger seat and it was her side of the car that I was seeing.  I knew that everything was going well.

Suddenly, she stopped the car.  It was like she couldn’t stand it; she just had to do it.  She got out of the car and began walking toward the direction she had come.  As she walked in the darkness, a person came up to her, then another, then another.  I watched as she had a small group there with her now, but she was in danger.  None of them had her best interest in mind.  They were out for self no matter what it caused or cost her.

As soon as my eyes opened, I knew she had allowed the Holy Spirit to guide her.  That was the driver and the safety of the car.  She only lets that go so far and she has to take control and do it her way.  The Holy Spirit won’t interfere with free will.   So she goes back and thinks things will be different now.  Her old acquaintances she calls friends come around and she’s so happy to see them.  It gives her a sense of home and comfort, but she doesn’t see it’s not a home and the comfort is short lived.  Then she finds herself back where she was and an outcast to family and true friends and without her children.  Now she has used all the excuses she had to use others to help her.  Everyone is wise now and no one will listen.

When we lose everything, we have no way to look but up.  I continue to pray now with more hope than ever, but that’s all the help I give.  I will be there for the children, but the end of her has to come so she will say ‘Jesus take the wheel’.  She will be grateful for the safety of that car – and for the driver.

If this is you out there, I pray for you too.  And I especially pray for the people that care so much for you.  I pray they can let go of the situation and hold on to the prayers until you lose yourself.  There is a driver and a car waiting for you, but He’s a gentleman.  He won’t take away your free will.  Don’t ask God or family ‘why won’t you help me’, but ask yourself ‘why won’t you help me’.  He will lead you where you dare to go alone and He will always be with you.  The word REPENT means to turn away from, so repent and turn away from what is hurting you and ask for help from the One that can.

More than once in my life, I have opened the bible to these words: (I usually use KJV but felt I should use NIV on these.)

Isaiah 43:2 NIV – When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you.  When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.

Haggai 1:13 NIV – Then Haggai, the Lord’s messenger, gave this message of the Lord to the people:  “I am with you,” declares the Lord.

And never forget to pray for strength.  I’m an old lady raising grandchildren so I have done it many times and I have never been disappointed.  The One who is in us is greater than the one who is in the world. (1 John 4:4)  It is for freedom that Christ has set us free.  Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery. (Galatians 5:1)  When you resist the devil he will flee (James 4:7)  He will protect you like in the car I saw and it will be your hiding place from those wanting to harm you.  (Psalm 32:7)

So cry out to Him today; He hears you and will deliver you from all your troubles. (Psalm 34:17)  Forget the former things and don’t dwell on the past.  He will make a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland. (Isaiah 43:18-19)

1 John 5:4-5 – For everyone born of God overcomes the world.  This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith.  Who is it that overcomes the world?  Only the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God.

 

Treasures of the Snow – 7-26-19

The Treasures of the Snow 7-26-19

The first end-time dream, as I call it, was when I was in my twenties. It was actually more than one but they came together.  After that I didn’t have one for about thirty years.  I didn’t know much about God growing up other than what he put in my heart; he was with me.

At the time of this dream, I didn’t have much bible knowledge at all. I didn’t fully understand some of it, but as time passed I did. It is posted on this site as one of the first so you have to scroll way down to get to it. It tells of how, in the dream, I was in town with other people at night. I looked up at a huge tree and through its bare limbs I could see where a face had formed as I looked at the moon through the limbs. The face had a bald head. I started calling attention to it to first one person and then the other. No one seemed interested and no one could see what I was talking about at all.  I knew it was the antichrist.

There were men that were very angry at what I was doing. I don’t know who these men were but they began coming after me. They chased me so hard I ran down a narrow dirt road and wound up crossing a fence and going into a pasture. One drove an old blue pickup truck and rammed through the fence and never slowed down. I finally made it to a small white church where I walked through the door to find people sitting on backless benches. They were mesmerized with their faces positioned straight ahead and their eyes wide open but not seeing. I was yelling so loud but they couldn’t see me or hear me.

I suddenly found myself with a group of women and children. None of us knew each other. No child knew any adult and no adult knew any child. We were in a metal-type building like you see the gyms at the churches now. There were troops outside that wore uniforms and spoke a different language. I don’t remember the uniforms or the language. We had two at our building. As the weather began to turn cold, I and other women began to gather sticks outside to place on the floor inside and start a fire to warm the children. The troops became so angry they slapped the sticks from our arms and yelled something in their language.

As the other women and I stood just outside the building, the Lord spoke to an older woman that was with us. I don’t know who the woman was, but I remember telling the other ladies that she said God told us to bring down the snow from the mountain. We didn’t question this at all. We brought down the snow from the mountain and we covered the floor of this metal building inside. As we finished covering the floor, we could feel that the snow had turned warm on the underside. As the troops continued to laugh at us for our crazy work we were doing, we placed the children and babies under this snow as a blanket of protection from the cold. The Lord had truly prepared a table for us before our enemies.

In the next scene, I was running from gunfire. I ran through the parking lot and was able to grab hold of a door knob on a vehicle and hang on with my feet suspended. The gunfire was all around, even coming under the vehicles. Suddenly, the sky lit up so bright in color that I looked up and saw Jesus coming down. I ran so fast and so hard toward Him yelling ‘Thank God, Thank God, Thank God!’. As His face turned toward mine, a feeling of love that I had never known came toward me from Him. It was an unconditional love so overwhelming that it took my breath away and woke me up in shivers and tears.

Over the years, I have found so many verses for so many scenes in this dream. Sometimes I will read a verse and know it goes with it. The most amazing connection was just a few months ago when I read a verse in Job that spoke of the treasures of the snow.

Job 38:22-23
Hast thou entered into the treasures of the snow? Or hast thou seen the treasures of the hail. Which I have reserved against the time of trouble, against the day of battle and war?

I found a site called idahobaptist.com that speaks of these treasures where the author says the snow he was shoveling hit him in the face and prompted him to research the snow verses in the bible. Proverbs 25:13 – As the cold of snow in the time of harvest, so is a faithful messenger to them that send him: for he refresheth the soul of his masters.

Sometimes someone can point out something we missed. The author said that with the verses of snow in the old and the new testaments, the new shows the Lord’s glory. Hast thou entered into the treasures of the snow? The treasure isn’t the diamond, but where the diamond is kept.

I have always been shy about speaking to people about Jesus.  I taught Sunday school and children’s church so I was always really good at communicating with children, but not so much with adults.  Children tend to listen even when we don’t think they do.  I remember my son on the pew next to me, whom I thought was asleep.  The preacher made a joke about women that all the men enjoyed.  That was in a different time when everyone could laugh at themselves.  Then as it became silent, my son’s voice rang out ‘I know that’s right’.

Adults, like myself, try to listen but our minds are moving on to the next thing we have to do.  I even have to reign thoughts in during devotion.  This morning I just placed my bible in my lap and asked the Lord what did He want to talk about.  I was at the story in Jeremiah 26.

I was reminded of America as I read the words Jeremiah spoke from the Lord.  The Lord told him to ‘stand in the court of the Lord’s house and speak to all the cities of Judah, which come to worship in the Lord’s house, all the words that I command thee to speak unto them;  diminish not a word: If so be they will hearken, and turn every man from his evil way, that I may repent me of the evil, which I purpose to do unto them because of the evil of their doings.’

He was told to say ‘thus saith the Lord’.  The people were told to walk in God’s law which He has set before them.  Jesus tells us in Matthew 5 that He did not come to destroy the law or the prophets but to fulfill. He says that till heaven and earth pass, not one jot or tittle shall pass from the law till all is fulfilled.

The people in Judah would not accept the words Jeremiah spoke from the Lord.  We have the bible to compare what the prophets say with the word of the Lord.  In the house of the Lord, the people said that Jeremiah should die.  Others claimed to speak otherwise/a different message from the Lord, but to their demise.

I pray we are not so offended to repent, but will humble ourselves as little children and listen to what the Lord has to say in this hour.  America has allowed so much evil to be called good.  So many innocent lives have been destroyed.  God continues to offer another chance, but know this, it is sin that will one day be destroyed.

Seventy years captivity as the people of Judah saw is a very long time.  I know that’s right.

 

It is time – reminder of Sept 2015

untitled

I’m reminded this morning of September 2015.  I woke to hearing the congregation in my grandmother’s church singing.  Their sweet voices singing this beautiful song that they sang when I was a little girl sitting on the pew with my Bigma, waiting to eat the chicken pot pie in the picnic basket.  We would get in Grandaddy’s old blue truck and he would gently place the picnic basket in the back.

When I first started hearing the singing, I wasn’t sure what they were singing but I knew I remembered that tune.  Then I heard, ‘Count the milestones one by one, Jesus will forsake you never, it is better farther on’.

Why would I hear that song at that time was my question.  I soon found out the milestones leading up to us going home were quickly passing by.  Notable signs to getting us there – just flying by as we watch.

I looked up the definition of milestones –

  1. a stone set up beside a road to mark the distance in miles to a particular place.
  2. an action or event marking a significant change or stage in development.

New York’s approval of aborting a baby at full term if it means trouble for the mother if the baby is born made no sense whatsoever.  Oh they explained it in terms to make their decision to protect women viable in anyone’s eyes that are closed.  Mine are open, and so is my heart.  This is not right in any form you put it.  You can’t make a word that justifies this.  You can’t explain it away.

So this milestone in our country’s history is one that draws attention to the fact that we are in the times when the Christian has to stop and know that Jesus will forsake us never and it is better farther on.

I woke the morning of the blood moon and knew there were two standing by my bed.  I don’t know if they were angels or what but one said ‘we are waiting for her to choose Jesus’.  I didn’t understand that so I prayed about it and got the answer while working at my desk a couple days ago.  It shocked me when I realized that I will soon be brought before governors and kings for Jesus’ sake, for a testimony against them and the Gentiles.

But take no thought how or what thing ye shall answer, or what ye shall say.  For the Holy Ghost shall teach you in the same hour what ye ought to say.

This grandmother that I sat beside in church is the same one that talked to me when I would stand behind her and comb her long gray hair.  She gave me a warning.  She said ‘one day they are going to try to put a mark on you, don’t take it, don’t let them do that’.

So stand bold saints.  This is not our home.  We have an eternal home bright and fair, and our rooms have been prepared.  God bless and keep the faith.  Hold on to what you know, and not what you feel.  Stand firm on His Word.  Know it in your hearts.  And pray one for another.

There’s another scripture that tells us to go inside and shut thy doors until this indignation pass.  These are things coming to me this week.  It is time.  Cover your doors, cover yourselves and your families.  It is time.

Captivity Dream – 1983

I was in my twenties when I had two or three dreams back-to-back that went together.   That was around 1983.

I stood in town with a crowd at night.  As I stared up through the limbs of a tree, I saw the moon shining through.  The limbs began to form a face.  I tried to tell the people what I was seeing, but no one could see it.  The face with a bald head stared down at me and I knew he was angry.

The scene changed to daytime and I was running – running from those that knew I had recognized the antichrist and I was trying to get others to see it.  I ran as fast as I could down the old country path.  I climbed a fence as I came to it but the old blue pickup chasing me plowed through.  I kept running and made it to a little white church.  I ran through the door screaming of what was coming.  The people sat on backless benches and stared straight ahead.  Nothing I did, even yelling in their face, made them see me or hear me.

I found myself in confinement with other women and children.  None of us knew each other.  The temperatures got cold so we went outside the metal building we were in to find sticks in hopes of making a fire.  The military outside spoke a language I didn’t know.  They became very angry with us and slapped the sticks from our hands.  We were in winter.

Then God spoke to an older woman that was with us.  She said, “God said to bring the snow down from the mountain.”  We didn’t question it.  We brought the snow down and we covered the floor inside with it.  The troops laughed and thought we were crazy.  We covered the children and babies in that snow on the floor because it had turned warm underneath.  God had prepared a table before us in the presence of our enemies.  He had provided in a way our enemies could not comprehend.  We leaned not onto our own understanding but on God’s.  We kept the faith.

Soon the troops found something else to be angry about and we scattered to run from their guns.  We were in a parking lot so when the guns began shooting under the vehicles to stop our running, I held on to a door handle and held my feet up.  Just when it seemed there was no way out, the sky lit up in a way that everyone had to look up.

I saw Jesus coming down.  I ran screaming, “Thank God! Thank God! Thank God!”  And as soon as His face turned toward mine, the feeling of love so overwhelmed me that it woke me up.  We don’t comprehend that kind of love.  We have no idea.

The picture on this post is one I took a couple years ago.  You can see Jesus, the candle stick, others behind him and lightning in the sky.
