Close the Mouth of Lions

Hebrews 11: 32- 35  And what more shall I say? For the time would fail me to tell of Gideon and Barak and Samson and Jephthah, also of David and Samuel and the prophets: who through faith subdued kingdoms, worked righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouth of lions, quenched the violence of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, out of weakness were made strong, became valiant in battle, turned to flight the armies of the aliens. (all of chapter 11 is very encouraging)

2 Cor 5: 4&5  For we who are in this tent groan, being burdened, not because we want to be unclothed, but further clothed, that mortality may be swallowed up by life. Now He who has prepared us for this very thing is God, who also has given us the Spirit as a guarantee.

Luke 10:19  Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy; and nothing shall by any means hurt you.

Joshua 1:8  This book of the law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.

Delivered from the mouth of lions. Saved from the grip of giants. Clothed in liberty so shout the victory! Build yourselves up in your most holy faith. Oh Saints of the Most High bow down and thank Him for His mercy and grace! He alone is worthy to receive honor and praise! The enemy may throw you in the den and tempt you with past sin, but he shall not claim victory over anyone who belongs to Me. I have sealed mine with a guarantee. Eternally protected by Me! With My own Holy Spirit I have given you a part of Me. Speak My word and cause your enemy to flee. Learn to exercise your faith today. That way you will be prepared for darker days. For I have given you My authority over serpents and things that sting. Champion training starts with the little things so you can practice to overcome the big things. A true champion must be tested to reach his final destination. My word must be your meditation. Release your double edged sword! Keep it not in it's scabbard! These challenges will be won as you rebuke them in My name and stand in faith until things change. Praise his holy name!

Power to tread! Power to tread! I have given you power to tread on all the enemies. Allow him not into your head. Rebuke his thoughts when he questions your worth. I made plans for you before your birth. Rest in Me! Oh how I love thee.

My children are shining brighter and brighter each day. The transformation is slowly taking place ever brighter until the perfect day. Refinement! My children are shining like the bright and morning sun. Beautiful in the spirit to your heavenly Father, but a terror to the unholy dark ones. Your journey in this place is drawing to a close. You shall soon step into the next phase in My plan of redemption. Clothed with My glory. Crowned with eternal life. But for now you are wrapped in My Son's loving arms. Continue to pursue and listen to Me, and keep your focus straight ahead. Peace be still child. Know that your God reigns. Celebrate! Oh how our God is great!

Proverbs 4:18  But the path of the just is like the shining sun, that shines ever brighter unto the perfect day. 😆

Dream: Great Tribulation Timing


Rev 3:14-21  And to the angel to the church of the Laodiceans write, These things says the Amen, the Faithful and True Witness, the Beginning of the creation of God: I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I could wish that you were cold or hot. So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth. Because you say, I am rich, have become wealthy, and have need of nothing - and do not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked - I counsel you to buy from Me gold refined in the fire, that you may be rich; and white garments, that you may be clothed, that the shame of your nakedness may not be revealed; and anoint your eyes with eye salve, that you may see. As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten. Therefore be zealous and repent. Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and will dine with him, and he with Me. To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne.

I received this dream on the night of July 4, 2017. I did not feel led to share it until now. I believe the Lord gave this dream as an answer to prayer. There is so much information now on the internet in regards to all end times topics that it can be confusing to me. Also, with the Revelation 12 sign quickly approaching, I felt like I really needed to know how close we are to the beginning of the 3 1/2 year period known as the Great Tribulation. I was actually believing that it would begin any day now. I believe this dream clarified the timing for me. Now this does not mean life will be hunky dory until that time because the birth pangs will be very intense too. Also, prophecy tells us America must be destroyed in order to accomplish Satan's goal of a one world government in which he can rule. One more interesting point: I received this dream on July 4th which is Independence Day. Thank you Jesus. Please pray about this topic too. 



Daniel 12:1 At that time Michael shall stand up, the great Prince who stands watch over the sons of your people; and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation, even to that time. And at that time your people shall be delivered, every one who is found written in the book. And many of those who sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, some to shame and everlasting contempt. Those who are wise shall shine like the brightness of the firmament, and those who turn many to righteousness like the stars forever and ever.

Master of Tricks

Rev 12:9  So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was cast to the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

Matt 24:24  For false christs and false prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect.

John 14:26 But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you.

Eph 5:18-20  And do not be drunk with wine, in which is dissipation, but be filled with My Spirit, speaking to one another in psalms, and hymns, and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord, giving thanks always for all things to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.

                                          Prophecy received 7/28/2017  12:09 a.m.

For many are called, but most send Me to voicemail saying they will return My call later. They are busy living their own lives and making their own plans. Few walk and talk with Me throughout their day. Do you think I would neglect the ones who actually walk in My way? This is not something I would do. I am with you and talk continually to you. However, there are purposeful times when I do become quiet. You must trust Me and resist being led to misunderstand Me. At these quiet times, I am drawing you closer in order to do a work in you. Reshaping you more into My image. Never question My love for you. Remember My child I died for you. You must learn to tune in to your spirit because that is where I live. When I speak I lead you according to My written word. If what you see or hear is not in My word then the manifestation is not from your Lord. Gold dust and laughing lines are done by your enemy. If these simple tricks are fooling people today, what will happen when false miracles are on display? You must use My word as a measuring stick, and trust My Holy Spirit to discern the devils tricks. He is a master impersonator who's number one goal is to steal your faith in Me. Doubt not in his desire to win. Therefore you must resist him. Spend time in My word and be filled with My Holy Spirit. Sing songs, pray, and praise each day. Make melodies in your heart unto the Lord. These habits increase My presence and push away the darkness. I command you boldly, do not talk to dead persons. Some teach the Mount of Transfiguration as a precedent, but that experience was a glimpse of heaven. It is not an excuse to allow in sin. This practice is leading many to destruction. I have sent you My Holy Spirit. He is your Comforter, Counselor, and Teacher. Why would you need another spirit? False prophets will fool even the elect if possible. They speak great swelling words but are filled with compromise. I warn you again, reject their corruption. The deception is growing stronger. You must hold on to My word with all your strength in order to be protected. When you see amazing things ask yourself this; Does what you see bring God the Father and Jesus Christ glory or does it bring attention to the one performing? Be aware! Be alert! Your enemy has an unquenchable thirst. Stay close to Me My sheep.
Your Risen King Jesus Christ Yeshua Hamashiach

2Tim 4:3-4  For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth and be turned aside to fables.

1Tim 4:1-2 Now the Spirit says in the latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons speaking lies in hypocrisy, having their own conscience seared with a hot iron

Into His Likeness

The Lord is doing some things IN me right now in order that He may improve the things that He does THROUGH me. As soon as He gives a message, I will post it for us all. God Bless.

Rom 8:29  For those He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, so that He would be the firstborn among many brethren.

Phil 1:6  Being confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in me will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ.

Slay the Giants

John 8:31-38 Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him, "If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed. And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." They answered Him, "We are Abraham's descendants, and have never been in bondage to anyone." How can you say, "You will be made free?" Jesus answered them, "Most assuredly, I say to you, whoever commits sin is a slave to sin. And a slave does not abide in the house forever, but a son abides forever. Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed. I know that you are Abraham's descendants, but you seek to kill Me, because My word has no place in you. I speak what I have seen with My Father, and you do what you have seen with your Father."

Message received 7/22/2017  8:00 a.m.

Whom the Son sets free is free indeed. Freedom from the heavy burden of slavery. No longer enslaved to the kingdom of darkness and under the law of sin and death. There is no in between. Either you serve Satan or you serve Me, King of kings and Lord of lords. Choose this day whom you will serve. Can a saved person be unknowingly serving Satan? Absolutely without a doubt! It's called the Laodicean Church. You must make a conscious decision each day to walk in My light. There are many voices in the world along with all the choices. Learn to follow only Me. Follow the planted word within thee. It speaks and continually guides thee. This is why it is so important to spend time with Me. Apart from Me it is impossible to have the victory. My Holy Spirit is as the wind. He is quiet, but discernable if you are listening. This wind leads you on the path of righteousness. Follow Me closely My friend. The enemy comes frequently. You must unquestionable be prepared to defend. He comes with whispers against My word. So quiet at first, but if you yield to him you are caught, hook, line and sinker. He comes to steal your power. Resist him immediately! That way it is so much easier. Trust My Holy Spirit that I have given thee. Listen intently to the Wind. Learn to discern His voice clearly. He gives excellent advice consistently. 

Being born again is only the beginning. You are training for reigning. As a new born babe desire My pure milk of the word. Reject the formula created by men. It is leaven and poisons you from within. Newborn babes depend completely upon their parents for survival. This is how you should also be spiritually depending upon your heavenly Father. As an earthly child you grow day by day and are taught to eventually become independent. This is where your spiritual growth is different. I teach you to depend completely upon Me once you are born of Me. You must therefore overcome two giants to have the victory. Self-reliance and self-sufficiency are not a part of My kingdom. These two cause many to stumble at the beginning, but with time these two enemies shall no longer be an issue. Learning to deny self and pick up the cross is how to win. (Added 7/24/2017: It's not a place where we cry woe is me, but it's a place where we give praise to Thee despite what we see!). The cross represents My victory. Pick up My burden. It is easy and light and teaches you what is right. You must be willing to deny self and follow My will. This is your cross. Surrendering to Me is another one of My keys. Religion has taught lies in regards to My cross. It is not a place of defeat for thee, but a place of total victory. Seek truth and you shall find it. We can then discard all the lies. Your loving Savior Jesus Christ.

Scripture references:

John 8:12  Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, "I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life."

Eph 5:8  For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light.

1Peter 2:2  As newborn babes, desire the pure milk of the word, that you may grow thereby.

2Cor 3:5  Not that we are sufficient in ourselves to claim anything as coming from us, but our sufficiency is from God.

Phil 4:13  I can do all things through Him who strengthens me.

Luke 9:23 Then He said to them all "If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow Me.

1John 4:4  You are of God, little children; and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.

2Cor 10:4&5  For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down argumemts and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ.

Eph 5:18 Therefore do not be unwise, but understand what the will of the Lord is. And do not be drunk with wine, in which is dissipation; but be filled with the Spirit, speaking to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord, giving thanks always for all things to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, submitting to one another in the fear of God.

Self-sufficiency - able to supply one's own needs without external assistance.

Self-reliance - depend with full trust or confidence on one's own efforts and abilities.

hook, line and sinker - without hesitation or reservation, completely fell for the story.

I believe John 8 is an excellent chapter to read to help expand upon this lesson.

Member of Righteousness

Rom 8:2  For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin of death.

Rom 6:8-11  Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with Him, knowing that Christ having been raised from the death, dies no more. Death no longer has dominion over Him. For the death that He died, He died to sin once for all: but the life that He lives, He lives to God. Likewise you also, reckon yourselves to be dead indeed to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Col 2:13&14  And you, being dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, He has made alive together with Him, having forgiven you all trespasses having wiped out the handwriting of requirements what was against us, which was contrary to us. And He has taken it out of the way, having nailed it to the cross.

1John 1:9  If we confess our sins He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

Col 3:1-3  If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God. Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth. For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God.

Phil 1:6 Being confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in me will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ.

                                            Message received 7/20/2017  8:38a.m.

Free from the law of sin and death. I say free! Declare that you are free from the law of sin and death. Were you crucified with Me? If I am your risen Savior then yes you died with Me, but you have also been raised to life with Me. Therefore renounce the law of sin and death that works all around thee. You have the spirit of life in Christ Jesus your Lord within thee. Release this spirit of life completely around thee. We died, but we have since been glorified. In Me, you have the victory over death and sin. Renounce the works of darkness. Keep yourself free continually by abiding in Me. I have paid the price. I was the living sacrifice. I Myself have paid the penalty for thee to be free. You are no longer slaves to sin, but you must offer yourself to Me continually. Be instruments of righteousness through Me. Come boldly daily to My throne of grace. Live unto righteousness. Offer your members to Me. Walk in newless of life. Free from condemnation according to the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus. I died once for all, but raised to life permamently defeating the law of sin and death. Having nailed the penalties against you to the cross. Wiping every sin clean. You have a clean slate within. However, you must daily spend time with Me in order to stay free. How often do you bathe to clean your outward man? Should you cleanse the inward man any less? All you have to do is ask. Sanctification is an ongoing process. Confess your sins and I have proven I am faithful and just to cleanse you. Since you died with me, keep your mind on things above where you are seated with Me. This practice is one of My keys. I rule and reign with My Father from above. If you died with Me, you should also be reigning with Me. Not by power nor by might, but by My Spirit you have been given eternal life. Love, Jesus Christ

Romans 6:13 And do not present your members as instruments of unrighteousness to sin, but present yourselves to God as being alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness to God.

I would encourage you to spend time in Roman's 5&6. This message came forth as I was spending time in these chapters myself.

Nuggets of Gold

Rev 3:18  I counsel you to buy from Me gold refined in the fire, that you may be rich; white garments that you may be clothed that the shame of your nakedness may not be revealed, and anoint your eyes with eye salve, that you may see.

Is 45:3  I will give you treasures of the darkness and hidden riches of secret places, that you may know that I, the Lord, who call you by your name, am the God of Israel.

Matt 7:15  Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves.

2 Tim 2:15, 16, and part 17  Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. But shun profane and idle babblings, for they will increase to more ungodliness. And their message will spread like cancer.

Is 11:2  The Spirit of the Lord shall rest on Him, the Spirit of wisdom and understanding, the Spirit of counsel and might, the Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord.

                                                  Prophecy received 7/18/17  11:19 p.m.

In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God. Many among you are weak because you know not My word, but there are a few among you who are strong. These spend much time seeking Me and the secrets of My kingdom. Sometimes, it can feel like a tedious job when you are searching. Imagine a prospector searching for gold. He repeatedly fills his pan with deposits from the riverbed and slowly sifts through the various sizes of earth in order to find the nuggets of gold. It's an arduous task, but how happy is he when he finds one nugget at a time. My word is a gold mine. If you are patient, over time your pouch becomes filled with much gold. A sack of great value. Search for Me My children.Take the time needed to sift through My word. The worker must show himself approved, and then he will be rewarded. Come to Me and buy fine gold that you may be rich. I will show you the hidden treasures of My kingdom. The secrets hidden in times past to be revealed at this time. Look into My word. It is a treasure chest. Seek and you shall find. The world can not fill the void you feel at times. Only My hidden manna will quench your thirst and fill your hungry belly. The hidden secrets of darkness are also much needed at this time. Knowing what your enemy is planning will help you avoid his traps and help you navigate the land mines. The great apostasy is upon thee. You must be prepared, and then you will not be caught unaware. He comes in sheep's clothing, but inside is a ravenous wolf. Wanting to devour all those possible. Never wander from My sheepfold. This can cause great harm. Stay within the confines I have placed upon you, but if necessary My shepherd's rod will guide you back in if you are led astray. Look not outside of My word for answers. Stay within My holy scriptures and then all will go well with you. Allow My Holy Spirit to breath upon My word as you read. He will bring life to My word and then it becomes living and active in thee.
Your Abba Father

Why Worship?

Is 51:16  And I have put My words in your mouth; I have covered you with the shadow of My hand, that I may plant the heavens, lay the foundations of the earth, and say to Zion, "You are My people."

Psalm 138:2 I will worship your holy temple, and praise your name. For your loving kindness and your truth; for you have magnified your word above all your name.

John 4:22-24  You worship what you do not know; we know what we worship, for salvation is of the Jews. But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him. God is spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.

Rom 10:8-10 But what does it say? "The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart" that is, the word of faith which we preach: that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

James 3:5&6  Even so the tongue is a little member and boasts great things. See how great a forest a little fire kindles. And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity. The tongue is so set among our members that is defiles the whole body, and sets on fire the course of nature, and it is set on fire by hell.

James 3:9&10 With our tongue we bless our God and Father, and with it we curse men, who have been made in the similitude of God. Out of the same mouth proceed blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not to be so.

Prov 18:21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit.

John 14:26 But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you.

Psalm 19:14 Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in your sight, O Lord, my strength and my redeemer.

Psalm 141:3  Set a guard, O Lord, over my mouth; keep watch over the door of my lips.

                                    Teaching/message received 7/15/2017  5:26 a.m.

Worship. Why worship? Worship is a way of identifying the object of your affection. What you glorify with your mouth shows who your Lord truly is. Do you magnify your problems with your mouth or do you speak truth? Complaining magnifies satan. By complaining you are saying that the problem is too big for your Lord to solve. Speak the solution. Speak My word. Magnify My word above all else. This is how you worship your God. This is how you worship in spirit and in truth. Faith in Me and My solution despite what you see. Faith is the substance of things hoped for the evidence of things not seen. Speaking My word despite adversity magnifies Me; this is true worship. When you confess Me as Savior over unsaved loved ones you are worshipping Me in spirit and in truth. This activates heaven to move. I have already provided salvation for everyone. This is truth. Worshipping receives salvation. My truths are meant to be received now. Not only after you leave here. I have provided all you need to function successfully while you live on the earth: healing, deliverance, safety, and every other need you encounter. I am God Salvation. I am Jehovah. I have all you need. Turn not to this world for your answers. Come first to Me. I will direct your footsteps. Confessing My truth with your mouth receives salvation. Say what you desire. Deny yourself the enjoyment of complaining. It satisfies your flesh and glorifies satan. Choose this day whom you will serve. You decide with the words of your mouth. My Holy Spirit will help you overcome if you ask Him to help you when you are turning wrong. He is your Helper. He is your Reminder. Follow His leadings. He desires your constant victory over death and sin, not just a temporary win. Deny death the opportunity today to cause you grief and pain. Walk in victory. Walk as an overcomer. Worship the King of Kings and deny satan access to your life. Speak My truth. Alleluia to Jesus Christ our King!

Never Leave Nor Forsake You

John 10:9  I am the door. If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture.

Matt 24:6-8  And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of sorrows.

Acts 9:31 Then the churches throughout all Judea, and Samaria had peace and were edified. And walking in the fear of the Lord and in the comfort of the Holy Spirit, they were multiplied.

  Prophecy received 7/13/2017 4:00 p.m.

I am the Door. Enter into My presence. A place of joy and peace. A place where worries do not exist. There is no other way to the Father but by Me. I am life eternal. He who comes to Me must believe that I am, and that I am a rewarder to those who diligently seek Me. Many roadblocks as you travel with Me, but I never leave nor forsake thee. We take each obstacle together. Defeat is not a part of My kingdom, therefore we shall overcome as a team. All hindrances that attempt to come against you shall eventually flee. I equip you with inner strength and faith in Me, developed as you have spent time with Me. Allow Me to teach. Resist not My Holy Spirit. He was sent as your paraclete to comfort and bring you to a place of victory in Me. Fret not over wars and rumors of wars. I shall protect you and will be with you every step along the way. These things must come. Every word I have spoken will come to pass before the end can come. Wait patiently for My return. Be not alarmed when you hear of fearful earth changes. These too are birth pangs. Though the oceans roar and mountains be cast into the sea I shall be with you. I am the calm in the storm. The earth shall break and have many quakes but I am your sure foundation. Stand upon the Rock. Build not your house upon the sand. When you need Me most, I am there. Keep your garments clean. Watch therefore. Be not caught unaware. Your Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, Yeshua Hamashiach

Crystal Clear

Ps 27:14 Wait on the Lord; Be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart; wait I say, on the Lord!

John 7:38  He that believeth on Me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.

Rev 22:1  And he showed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb.

Matt 13:44-46 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field, which a man found and hid; and for joy over it he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field. Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant seeking beautiful pearls, who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had and bought it.

Luke 9:24 For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it.

Matt 19:29  And everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or wife or children or lands, for My names sake, shall receive a hundredfold, and inherit eternal life.

Prophecy received 7/12/2017  2:44 p.m.

Linger with the Lord. Wait patiently for Him. It is worth the wait. Wait patiently. 
Then out of your belly shall flow streams of crystal clear water meant to bring life to all those who hear. Your eye gates and ear gates are bombarded with things contrary to My kingdom throughout your day. These things are meant to pollute the living waters which flow from within thee. The only way to keep the flow free is to spend time with Me. My word is living water. Allow it to wash over your soul continually keeping you free and cleansing you from all the evil that surrounds thee. My power is increasing. Pay the price and you shall see. Are you willing to make sacrifices to seek Me? Less sleep, less food, less time with those you love, and less recreation time which destroys your mind anyway? Make time for Me. Fitting Me into your already busy schedule does not show Me reverence. Lay aside those things that cause you to neglect Me. You must decide if I am worth your time. There is much power to be received as you worship Me.

Two Proverbs

Upon awakening the morning of 7/10, I had two flash visions back to back. As I was writing them down in my journal the Lord gave me a proverb to explain each mental picture. The artwork illustrating the flash visions was created by a precious friend in Christ. Thank God for her time and effort given. I pray she receives a special blessing for helping me.

                                                                     Flash vision #1

I saw a lady's hand holding a piece of white yarn between her fingers. Her hand was resting on a white dinner plate. The plate was resting on a white lace tablecloth which was covering a wooden table.

    Proverb #1 The Word of God

                               God's word has many layers of truth and they are all interwoven.

                                                                     Flash vision #2

I saw a bird's nest shaped like a heart. Inside the heart was a clock but I did not see the time. This heart shaped nest with clock on the inside was hanging on a sky blue wall.

 Proverb #2 The Kingdom of God

                      The Kingdom of God is like a timeless clock within the heart of the Father.

Both visions have an element of wood included in them. I believe the table and the nest both represent the cross. The place where our Lord Jesus Christ died for us and paid the penalty for our sins. This is the place where our walk with Him begins and as a result never ends.  It's the Father's heart and the place that we should never forget. 

Update 11/4/2017: I believe these 2 flash visions together represent John 1:18
No one has seen God at any time. The only begotten Son, who is in the bosom of the Father, He has declared Him.

Warrior King

Prov 4:20-22  My son, give attention to My words; incline your ear to My sayings. Do not let them depart from your eyes; keep them in the midst of your heart; for they are life to those who find them, and health to all their flesh.

Luke 4:13 Now when the devil had ended every temptation, he departed from Him until an opportune time.

Jer 5:14  Therefore thus says the Lord God of hosts: Because you speak this word, Behold, I will make My words in your mouth fire, and this people wood, and it shall devour them.

Is 9:7 Of the increase in His government and peace there will be no end, upon the thrown of David and over His kingdom, to order it and establish it with judgment and justice from that time forward, even forever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.

Zeph 2:3  Seek the Lord, all you meek of the earth, who have upheld His justice. Seek righteousness, seek humility. It may be that you will be hidden in the day of the Lord's anger.

Rom 6:23  For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Rev 5:5 But one of the elders said to me, "Do not weep. Behold, the Lion of the Tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has prevailed to open the scroll and to loose it's seven seals."

                                             Prophecy received 7/8/2017  5:35 p.m.

The enemy will come to challenge you. He will test you as you advance. He does not give up ground without a fight. Use My word as your weapon of defense. My words come out of your mouth as a flame of fire. He shall attempt to discourage you with every forward step you take. Remember I am your shield and the Captain of your salvation. I defend as you speak forth My word. It is life to all who find it and health to all your flesh. Fight the good fight of faith. Lay hold of eternal life. Hold fast to that which you have been given. The thief comes to steal immediately. He also watches and waits for an opportune time. Resist him steadfast in the faith. Speak forth My truth. Gird up your loins. Hold up your shield of faith. Remember I have warned! Watch! Be not ignorant of his devices. He is defeated but you must enforce My victory. He is an outlaw, robbing those who know not my triumph. I made a public spectacle of him. I wear the victor's crown. Satan has been stripped of his power. I hold the keys of death and hell. Not one hair of your head falls without My notice. My thrown is forever established. I rule with a sceptor of righteousness. I am King of Kings and Lord of Lords. No one comes to the Father but by Me. I am the Good Shepard, but I am also the Lion from the Tribe of Judah. Soon all shall see My fierceness and tremble at My presence. I am your soon and coming Warrior King. My people no longer believe that I am God of judgment. Soon I shall command My angels to release My redemptive judgments. My will is that none shall perish therefore My judgmemts are sent to draw the lost back unto myself. Sin has never gone unpunished. Why would people be deceived into thinking I am no longer a God of Justice? Your judicial system on earth is a reflection of My system in heaven. Many are being found guilty, but prayers of loved ones and My enduring mercies shall reduce the penalty. Be ready. Do not be surprised at the fiery trial you shall witness.

Gods Ways Are Higher

I feel led to share a personal story that happened to me over the course of the last couple of days. First off, I have been seeking God's will in regards to my employment. I'm blessed to have two careers. I'm an RN, but I'm also a Landman. Most people don't know what a Landman does so I will define it for you. It is a job within the oil and gas industry. We research title ownerships to land and mineral property and lease mineral rights. This gives Oil companies permission to explore for minerals on private property. So my preference is to do landwork, but the oil industry in Louisiana over the last two years has been dismal. Thank God I have been able to be employed as a nurse in order to pay my bills. I know nursing is a highly respected position, but it is a difficult job. Nurses are overworked and under appreciated. The spirit of entitlement makes the job very draining. So to continue, I recently quit a nursing position that made me miserable, and I have been seeking the Lord as to His direction. I really was hoping He would open up a door where I could do some landwork for a while, but my heart yearns to do His will, so I have been listening for His direction. One important note, there are very few land positions available, but we are King's kids right? All things are possible to them that believe, right? We can always find scriptures to stand on, but that does not mean we are believing according to His will. We need to be careful with the word of God. It should not be used like a slot machine. So back to my main point. I have been listening for His clear answer, and HOW He answered is why I'm sharing this story.

First, I received a dream. In the dream I talked to two people. The first person I talked to was an old boss of mine. She is a nurse and in the dream she was wearing white. I asked her if she could help me find a job. Her response was "what do you want to do?" The scene changed and I was talking to a man in a dark suit who I did not know. I asked him the same question. Can you help me find a job? His response was the same as my old boss. "What do you want to do?" That was it. End of dream.  I woke up and pondered the dream. After a couple of days, I believe God was telling me we all have two choices. We can follow His will or we can do things according to the worlds way. In other words there is a right path and a wrong path. A hard road and an easy road. After i received this truth, I, of course cried out to my heavenly Father that I want to do His will. I was not sure if that meant nursing or landwork, but i had an inkling that if I pursued landwork I would be out of His will. So I started applying for nursing positions, while at the same time hoping He would open a door where I could do some landwork for awhile.

So here is where my story gets interesting if you made it this far. I'm about to explain how amazing our God is. And also how He answers our prayers and guides our footsteps.

Yesterday afternoon I got locked out of my email account. I have no clue how this happened.  I originally thought someone had hacked my account. I have very limited knowledge in regards to computer problems, but I do know how to research. I spent a couple of hours trying to repair the problem by following the steps I found online. I eventually figured out how to change my password, and was able to get into my email mailbox, but I still could not receive emails to my phone. When I changed my email password I decided to use my 3 childrens birth months. My children are all in there twenties, and I have NEVER used their birth months to help create a password before. For some reason, this time I did. If you are like me, you have probably created lots of passwords and have used many methods to create them in order to actually remember them. So, I went from oldest to youngest. I used 819 which represent august, january, and september in the password. However, I have since changed the password again, so I can share this story. So anyhow, I was able to go to sleep last night at peace because I had resolved my computer problem which included receiving emails to my phone. I'm sure anyone reading this knows how stressful computer problems can be. I thought I would never be able to get into my email mailbox again, so Im sure you understand how much I was stressing prior to fixing the problem.

So this morning I woke up and decided to apply for a nursing position I found online on one of the employment websites. The application was very long and time consuming. I did not have alot of the information rightly available, so I had to retrieve alot of it. One piece of info they wanted was my RN license number. Now let me clarify here. I have been a nurse for 10 years and I have never memorized my license number. Each time I need it, I have to go and find it on the state board website. Well as I looked up my license number this time I was absolutely amazed! My number was RN 918. My children's birth months! I had never realized this coincidence before! The numbers were in reverse order from youngest to oldest, but the same numbers I used for the new password for my email! How could this be happening?? I realized my Father was answering my prayers in regards to employment direction, but basically also showing me He has ordained my footsteps for my entire life! Only He could prepare this elaborate set of circumstances to set up my answer. He knew when each of my children would be born, he knew I would get a divorce and decide to go back to school in order to support us, and he knew I would become a nurse, and He had my nursing license number assignment match my children's birth months. And He also knew I would struggle with being a nurse, so He orchestrated all of these circumstances to make His will clear to me. He even locked me out of my email temporarily in order for me to change my password to create the code He chose! Now if you doubt God has everything to do with all these circumstances, so be it, but He showed me one more thing.

When I set up the email password I used 819, oldest to youngest. My RN license number is 918, youngest to oldest. Only God knows how I struggle with self esteen issues. He even used this amazing set of circumstances to further encourage His love for me. He spoke the scripture, Matt 20:16 through this experience. The first shall be last, and the last shall be first. In other words, he has a plan to promote all of us! We all come into His family in last place, but His plans are to bring us forward! In my own mind I place myself last because I was a sinner most of my life, and I feel like I wasted over 50 years serving the devil. God does not see things the way we do. He loves us. He already knew how I would live my life, and he already had a plan to restore me. In His eyes, it's as if I have always served Him. The past is under His Son Jesus's blood. Oh how great is His mercy. Thank you Jesus for answered prayers. Needless to say, I'm called to be a nurse, and I choose to follow His will.

I have said all of that to say this. God answers prayers, and he loves us more then we can ever understand. To receive answers, I believe we need to ask ourselves, DO WE WANT HIS TRUTH AND HIS WILL? Secondly, we need to check ourselves and insure that we are walking closely enough to Him that we SEE the answer when He responds. I could have very easily missed His answer if I wasnt truly paying attention. Receiving answers takes faith. I encourage all of you to trust Him today. Nothing takes Him by surprise. He already has a way of escape. Listen to him today. His answers may be hidden right in front of your eyes. Praise My Jesus!

Reverential Fear

Is 40:31  But those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.

Phil 2:9,10&11  Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and those on the earth, and those under the earth, and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

Acts 19:15&16  And the evil spirit answered and said, "Jesus I know, and Paul I know, but who are you? Then the man in whom the evil spirit was leaped on them, overpowered them, and prevailed against them, so they fled out of that house naked and wounded.

Acts 5:11  Then Peter said to her, " How is it that you have agreed together to test the Spirit of the Lord? Look, the feet of those who have buried your husband are at the door, and they will carry you out."

Heb 12:28  Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us have grace, by which we may serve God accepably with reverence and godly fear.

Heb 10:31  It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of a living God.

                                            Prophecy received 7/6/2017  11:16p.m.

Fly like an eagle. Gliding above your circumstances and over the enemy. He has no power over you unless you surrender yours to him. Fly high My children! Like an eagle! Soar through the sky! Allow My wind to carry you high. Soar through the open air. Rise higher without any cares. Use your eagle eye to spot your prey from above. It is time for you to operate in the offensive and not only the defensive. Only come down to surprisingly swoop upon your enemy. He will attempt to flee but not before he bows his knee. Jesus Christ is risen. He has the name above every name given. All shall bow down in reverence at His presence.

My kingdom is advancing and there is so much more! My children press in for the much more. My Spirit is increasing. Make sure you receive yours! No longer shall My Body be defeated. It is time to rise. Rise over every circumstance that keeps you held captive. Everything bows to My name. Use My name! Proclaim Jesus is Lord over every circumstance. We abide as one. Therefore what I have I give to you. Walk in My authority and the devil shall flee from you. Only in My name is there victory. Flee I say! The enemy must flee in My name!

There is a group who belongs only to Me and the enemy knows each of them by name. To be a part of this group you must walk closely with Me and then My authority rests upon thee. Do not be as one who uses My name but has not My authority. The enemy will laugh and then leap on you if you attempt to illegally resist him. This is a serious matter My children. The period of grace where people speak My name as slander shall soon pay a price because of dishonor. Be not apart of those who speak My name but by their actions hold hands with the enemy. Very soon this habit shall cause you to be consumed. Your own mouth shall bring your destruction.

Walk in reverential fear. Fear of the Lord is returning to My church. False brethren are being revealed. Be not like Ananias and Sapphira. Give yourself wholeheartedly. Hold nothing back or your own words shall cause you to be overpowered. It is a scarey thing to fall into the hands of a living God. All shall eventually bow down to the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. Will you be pleased when you eternally see Me?

Ps89:7 God is greatly to be feared in the assembly of the saints, and to be held in reverence by all those around.

Bumper Crop

Mark 4:3-8  Listen! Behold, a sower went out to sow. And it happened, as he sowed, that some seed fell by the wayside, and the birds of the air came and devoured it. Some fell on stony ground, where it did not have much earth; and immediately it sprang up because it had no depth of earth. But when the sun was up it was scorched, and because it had no root it withered away. And some seed fell among thorns; and the thorns grew up and choked it, and it yielded no crop. But other seed fell on good ground and yielded a crop that sprang up, increased and produced: some thirtyfold, some sixty, and some a hundred.

                                             Prophecy received 7/3/2017  5:43p.m.

For I have given you all things that pertain unto life and godliness. Therefore, there should be no weak ones among you. Strengthen yourselves through applying My word to your situations. Follow the conditions and My word shall be effective and in full manifestation. What conditions? Be ye doers and not only hearers. If you love Me you will keep My word. Love one another as I love you. And love the Lord your God with all your heart, and all your soul, and with all your mind. Plant seeds that you may grow a bountiful crop. My word is seed and must be planted in your spirit through meditation and by revelation from My Holy Spirit. He alone gives truth. Bumper crop! It's time for My children to experience bumper crops! Work the soil of your hearts by spending time with Me. I will speak to you about the condition of your heart as you do. Repentance is key in keeping the soil in right condition. Keep your heart clean. Allow Me in. If you fall just begin again. Never try to cover your sin. This only separates us and then you have trouble entering in. Begin again! Never quit. Never allow the enemy to condemn. Walk in the spirit and then there is no condemnation. Begin again. I am always there to defend. You are much loved My child. Walk the path of righteousness. Nothing pleases our Father more then to see His children walking in truth.   Love, Yeshua

2 Peter 1:3&4  as His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue, by which have been given exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.

Not the Anti-christ

This is absolutely one of the most important prophecies I have received to date. It is also one of the most difficult to share. It is important  because I finally have an answer to a question that has bothered me for over a year. Multiple people that I respect have come forth with dreams, visions, and words saying that God revealed to them that Barack Hussein Obama is the Antichrist. Over the last year or so, I have repeatedly asked the Lord to confirm this message given to others which He has not done. Recently, several other people have come forth with new confirmations of Barack Obama as the Antichrist. I have to admit I was feeling left out of the loop. So yesterday, 7/2, I decided it was important for me to diligently seek the Lord in regards to the truth about Barack Obama. Therefore I decided to fast and pray until I received an answer from the Lord. After 24 hours of seeking the Lord, I received an answer. I pray that you too will seek the Lord for yourself in this matter if it has also caused you confusion. He alone is our source of truth, and it is not my will to unintentionally lead anyone astray. I can only share what I believe to be the truth given to me by the Lord. I pray I dont offend anyone with sharing this word, but I must obey the Lord Jesus. With all that being said, here is what happened after 24 hours on my fast. On 7/3, at about 11:45a.m., I decided to take a nap because I was feeling very tired due to the lack of food. A little while later, at 12:07p.m., I was awakened by hearing the words "I am the Alpha and the Omega." I then reached for my pen and notebook after glancing at the clock, and wrote down what I heard flowing from my spirit. Below is the prophecy received.

                                           Prophecy received 7/3/2017  12:07 p.m.

I am the Alpha and the Omega. The One who is called Faithful and True. 

I will return riding the white horse followed by the chosen and few. 

Peace My children. I am your soon coming King. 

I shall appear in the clouds soon. I am the Bright and Morning Star.

I have a message for you sweet one. 

Barack Hussein Obama is a messenger of Satan, but not the son of perdition. 

He is coming very soon, but people will miss him because they are looking at the wrong one. 

Great deception moving across My Body because they are not perfect before Me. 

They have their own agendas and unrepented sins. 

Hold fast to that which is given. The thief shall come and try to take it away. 

I am your Lord, and Savior, and Risen King.

Scripture references:

Rev 22:13  I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, the First and the Last.

Rev 19:11  Now I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse. And He who sat on him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and makes war.

Matt 22:14  For many are called but few are chosen.

Rev 22:16  I, Jesus, have sent My angel to testify to you these things in the churches. I am the Root and Offspring of David, the Bright and Morning Star.

Sound the Alarm

                                                     Prophecy received 7/4/2017  6:44a.m.

Trouble is coming to the land of the free.

Very soon parts of it shall no longer be.

I have prepared you My child for this tragedy.

Others shall, through the storm, come and worship Me.

I have warned repeatedly, but they choose not to listen to Me.

I long that none should perish. Pray for your country.

Scripture references:

James 5:16 Confess your trespasses one to another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.

Is 53:6  All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned, every one, to his own way; And the Lord has laid on Him the iniquity of us all.

Eat While You Can

John 6:48&49  I am the bread of life. Your fathers ate the manna in the wilderness, and are dead. This is the bread which comes down from heaven, that one may eat of it and not die.

John 1:1  In the beginning was the word, and the word was with God, and the word was God.

2Tim 3:16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.

Amos 8:11  "Behold the days are coming," says the Lord God, "That I will send a famine on the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the Lord."

                                            Prophecy received 7/3/2017  6:16 a.m.

Eternal Word. It is forever settled in heaven. It is medicine to your flesh, and brings health to your soul. Stand upon My Rock and you shall not sink in the sands of doubt and unbelief. I sent My Word to heal your diseases, and it shall not return unto Me void. It shall accomplish that which I please and shall prosper in the thing which I sent it. It is a sure foundation. Stand upon the Rock. It became flesh and dwells among men. It is alive and active. Sharper than any double edged sword. There is creative power within My Word. It carries My very life essence within it. It's like a medicine capsule. Take it daily. Meditate upon it. It changes your very being. It transforms your mind and conforms you into the likeness of Christ. Power packed. Life giving. Sure thing. Dependable. Truth bringing. Deception protection. The way, the truth, and the life. Yoke breaking. Light giving. Chain destroying. Weapon of warfare. Balm of Gilead. Deny not my truth and your way shall be prosperous. I watch over My Word to perform it. Rest giving. Calm in the storm. Walks on water. Performs miracles. Makes all things possible. Heals broken hearted. Binds wounds. Delivers captives. Opens prison doors. Brings salvation. Opens blind eyes. Makes one wise. I Am the Living Word. There is no death in Me. I Am the Life Giver. Come with Me. Take and eat. This is My body given for you. Remember Me. The Bread of Life. Your Risen Christ. Lord and Savior to all who may believe. King Yeshua Jesus.

Beacon of Light

Matt 5:14-16  You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill can not be hidden. Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light so shine before men that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.

Prov 4:18  But the path of the just is like the shining sun, that shines ever brighter unto the perfect day.

John 6:44  No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me draws him; and I will raise him up at the last day.

Jer 5:24  They do not say in their heart, "Let us now fear the Lord our God, who gives rain, both the former and the latter, in its season. He reserves for us the appointed weeks of the harvest."

John 4:35  Do you not say, 'There are still four months and then comes the harvest?' Behold, I say to you, lift up your eyes and look at the fields, for they are already white for harvest!

                                            Prophecy received 7/2/2017  1:17p.m.

Ye are the light of the world. Shine brightly My children! As the darkness descends your lights shine ever brighter. Hide not your lights under a basket, but allow it to show wherever you go. Let your light so shine before men that your Father in heaven may be glorified. The latter rain is falling. Can you sense My Spirit increasing? Can you sense His Holy presence as you go about your day? It is the time of the former and latter rain. As the darkness increases My light shines brighter. It is a beacon of light to the lost. A lighthouse to guide lost ships in the darkness to safe shores. A drawing to My light is occuring. My Father is drawing in the lost. Be aware. Strangers shall look at you with interest. This is an open door to minister. They will feel as if something about you is familiar. Miss not this opportunity to minister. It is My light shining through you. Alleluia! Ever brighter unil the perfect day when darkness shall be put away. I am the light of the world. A city set on a hill can not be hidden. Much work to be done My children. The fields are white and ready to be harvested. Those who you thought were eternally gone will soon prove you to be utterly wrong. They shall come! My light is irresistible. The victory has been won! Speak forth My truth. Speak My word in faith. It is not too late! Amazed you shall be at the glorious sights you shall see. Many, many, many set free! Alleluia Jesus! Glory to our King!

Look Around You

John 9:4&5  "I must work the works of Him who sent Me while it is still day; the night is coming when no one can work. As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world."

Prov 11:30  The fruit of righteousness is a tree of life, and he who wins souls is wise.

Rev 22:2  In the middle of its street, and on either side of the river, was the tree of life, which bore twelve fruits, each tree yielding its fruit every month. The leaves of the trees were for the healing of the nations.

Jer 8:22 Is there no balm in Gilead.? Is there no physician there? Why then is there no healing for the wound of the people?

                                            Prophecy received 7/1/2017  10:00 a.m.

Tree of Life. I Am the Tree of Life. Come to Me and eat of My healing leaves. I have all you need. Drink. Drink freely from My River of Life. Watch My children! Be ready at all times! Your enemy roams around as a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour. Resist him steadfast in the faith knowing that your brethren also suffer with you. Come boldly to My thrown of grace. Ask what you will and it shall be done. Are you your brothers keeper? Yes! In My kingdom we are one and united. Pray for each other that ye may overcome. United! Let us be united as one. That ye may become My glorious body, united with one purpose; to give My Father glory. Stop devouring one another. This is not My will. I will that you love one another. I am the vine and ye are the branches. Produce fruit that is worthy of My kingdom. A fruit to feed the lost around you. YOUR SALVATION IS SETTLED WITH ME. NOW LET'S REACH OUT TO THOSE AROUND YOU. SHOW THEM MY LOVE. SHOW THEM MY CONCERN AND MERCY. Listen to Me and I will help you miraculously know how to meet their needs. A word spoken in season can bring life to them when needed. Compassion. Show My compassion to those walking in darkness that they may see Me, The Great Light. Comfort. Allow My Comforter to flow. Give Him freedom, and the more you shall know. He alone knows what the broken hearted need to be healed. Balm of Gilead. I Am the Balm of Gilead. I heal the broken hearted. I set the captives free. Allow me into your circumstances. Pray for those you love. Pray for those who hurt you. Invite Me in. I stand at the door and knock. Please let Me in. It is to your advantage to let Me in. The hour is late. Soon comes a time when no man can work. Work while it is still day. I am coming soon! Be ready! Do not miss My day of visitation. Hold My hand child. I walk with you throughout your day. I am your Risen Savior. Lord Jesus Reigns.

1 Cor 12:25&26   that there should be no schism in the body, but that the members should have the same care for one another. And if one member suffers, all the members suffer with it; Or if one member is honored, all the members rejoice with it.

Is 50:4 The Lord God has given me the tongue of the learned, that I should know how to speak a word in season to him who is weary. He awakens me morning by morning, He awakens my ear to hear as the learned.
