Restoration Room Respective

Two_DoorsI see today you are in a place you have been in for 10 years and you have been struggling inside with your emotions. You have been shunned by your friends. At first there was a small and foolish sounding lie that attempted to smear you but some people believed it. Then more believed the lie and soon you found yourself being shunned by even some of your closest friends until the lie became something you believed yourself and you fell into the mud in agreement with them. But that isn’t your nature and you know that. You have continued in your integrity in spite of the strange blackness around your name and what you have prayed in secret God is going to bless you for in public.

I see the door that was closed to you standing in front of you, but God is opening a door behind you on the other side. It looks like the door to a rest room. Many people around you are trying to bang on the big door in front of you to help get you in but God is going to help keep that closed to you. It isn’t where your purpose lies. God is sending angels to help you, but you have to rest in God, and trust Him.

God is leading you into the rest room door. But when you enter that door, you will find that the inside is so massively large that it actually will feel like the outside and once you close the door behind you, I see agents with sunglasses and earphones standing guard outside it. They will only let people into that room who you request to come into it. But you will receive letters from many people through some of the many mail slots around the huge place and the mail will be from people who will never stand in front of the other closed door because of their beliefs. God wants you to examine these other letters and use them. God will bring your purpose out when you help these other letters’ requests by giving them a construct to take shape in.LionWall Then I see a Lion’s mouth forming on the outside of the rest room and when it opens, I see gold water rushing out like a liquid treasure. It never splashes and never forms droplets, it always stays together as one body of fluid but it drenches everyone in refreshing which is absorbed by the thousands and millions of people who come to dip in it. When it is all absorbed the lion’s mouth opens again and a new flood of the liquid treasure flows.

Eventually there are no more people flocking to the other door, but they all want to come to the lion’s mouth and suddenly I see lots of smaller buildings surrounding your ‘rest room’ until it looks like a castle. Every one of the surrounding buildings has a lion’s mouth on the side and every one of them opens and releases refreshing in the same way the first one did. Since the first lion’s mouth is now inside, the golden liquid that flows out from that one no longer gets absorbed by people outside, but instead is absorbed by each of the now surrounding buildings which then magnify it and redistribute more of it to the people.

Your influence then will be 7 times more powerful than you have ever been up until now, or at any of the points in your life when you have been the most influential. God is preparing this for you because of your faithfulness to integrity and because you never completely gave up your thoughts to the falsehood spoken against you. You held your tongue during the trials and God will now use it to deliver life to this generation.

Doubt’s Gravity

I looked in a cave and saw spikes sticking up and down, made of rock like stone icicles hanging from the ceiling, and piles of upside down icicles sitting on the floor. An angel appeared beside me and asked if I wanted to look inside and find out more about these structures. I said yes, please show me more.

We walked inside and it was difficult to walk around because of the icicles on the floor. Once we were inside we found a clearing where we could see these structures all around us. The angel lit up the cavern and all the stone spikes gave the room a strange feeling.

“Do you want to know what these are?” The angel asked.

“What are they?” I responded.
He said “These are the structures of faith and fear and how they form under the influence of doubt. The hanging spikes are evidence of the children of God as they cling to God’s word. The spikes on the floor are evidence of the fears of Mankind. Both are growing larger.

I thought about the angel’s response for a moment and then asked “If the spikes on the ceiling are faith, then why are they getting bigger and moving down?”

He didn’t answer but motioned for me to follow him. He led me deeper inside the cave and the his light grew dimmer.

As we walked though, the light started becoming unnecessary because there was a new light shining from deeper inside the cave. When we turned to the left at the last crevice, the cave opened up and we found ourselves inside a much larger room where the rock was all white and instead of spikes hanging and sitting, there were much larger pillars all smooth and polished looking.

The angel spoke: “The spikes outside were formed by faith, as people cling desperately to the word of God, but are pulled down by the force of doubt. The spikes on the floor are formed by fear but they rise by the drawing power of God’s love. But in here, these pillars are formed out of a pure faith where doubt has no influence. These pillars also represent faith but since there is no doubt in the hearts of these, the pillars are able to grow in both directions without being deformed. The ceiling in here does not need the support of these pillars, nor do the pillars require the strength of their bond to the ceiling… or floor, but they exist together anyway as a testament to the unity between the Bride and the Lamb.”

Before I could ask any more questions, we were back outside in daylight.

The angel instructed once more “Doubt has been a powerful force but its influence is not supposed to exist in the Kingdom of Peace. You must convince the people to develop their faith to the extent that the laws of doubt are abolished here.”

Start here…” he said as he pulled out a round ball from inside his robe and held it out to me. As I reached for it, the ball became like a computer monitor and I could look inside it. I saw your face, but only part of it was there. Your one cheek and one eye were missing… not grotesquely, just… there was nothing at all, like part of the picture was gone. I kept looking but the angel told me I would not find the missing pieces here… I would need to learn to overcome doubt myself so I could teach you how to stop listening to doubt’s voice as well.

When I looked up again, I was transported to a sea and I had to tread water. As I waited there, I heard a voice speak again… it said only “Swim, you will not overcome by remaining still.”

Sound Proof Assignment

 

Night time's Hidden Heavenly Symphony
Night time’s Hidden Heavenly Symphony

There is music in the air. I hear it, but I’ve always heard it before. Now I can actually see it. There are notes flying around and it looks like they should be banging into everything but instead of banging, they simply draw more notes out of whatever it is that is in their pathway.

I see the music flying all around the air and the notes are circling around you as you sit on the ground playing with your hands in the mud. You have mud all over your clothes too. As I watch, I see you trying to wash the mud off your hands and wipe it on your clothes. Your head is hung low like you’ve given up on something.

Then I see the music notes trying to pull music out of you but instead of drawing the notes out of you like they could with everything else, when they come around you, it’s like there’s an invisible wall around you that they bang into and fly off at super speed. It’s almost like the invisible wall is charged with something that springs the notes off of it and shoots them far away.

Then an Angel of the Lord descends from Heaven, playing an instrument that looks a bit like a guitar. When he strums it, EVERYTHING starts to vibrate. The invisible wall also starts to shake and it looses some of its invisibility. I see blackened bricks of ash locked together but the strumming of the Angel’s guitar is shaking the mortar loose between the bricks. On the third strum of the guitar, all the notes stopped and looked at the Angel, and then in perfect unison, all notes everywhere joined the Angel for the fourth strum and the bricks shattered apart. Each brick was individually demolished by the sound and every speck of dust they created was shot way off into the distant outer realm, the same way the wall was earlier sending off the notes.

At that moment, you lifted your head and heard the music. You started to sing, and immediately your clothes were changed to perfectly clean shiny white linen and a guitar appeared in your own hands. You began to play and everything joined you in a new song as celebration lit up the entire landscape and the scene changed completely.

Time Redeemed

Today I saw a clock walking along in the desert.  It had your name on the face of it.  As it walked along in the sand, I could see it having trouble  it was swallowed up by a great big snake. But the snake was not happy with the meal. Within minutes, I saw a man come along and grab the snake by the throat and shake it. He knocked the snake out and with it unconscious, he reached his hand into the snakes mouth and down its throat. Out of the snake he pulled the walking clock. But the clock was also pulling out 5 smaller clocks who were each holding hands forming a long chain.

When they were all out, the man checked to see that they were all OK, and then he turned to the snake, grabbed it and threw it an enormous distance away.

Breaking Through For God’s Pleasure

I believe today’s prophetic picture may be for the whole church rather than just for an individual.  I saw a jar with a sealed cork on it and inside were strange coloured gases swirling all around.  They were different colours like red and blue and when they swirled inside the jar, they never mixed so you could always see interesting patterns of the different colours.
I saw many people come to try to open the jar but none were able to.  Then a lamb walked up to it and touched the cork with his nose and the cork popped open.  Then the jar spilled over and emptied out into a very ominous looking cloud-blackened sky.  They whole sky was covered in cloud but where the jar spilled it formed a line of white, red and blue sparkles that spread in a straight line completely across the sky.  The line opened up a tear in the clouds that let more light in and from the rip in the sky, the coloured sparkles began to fall to the earth, changing to gold glittery dust as they fell.
Then as I looked, the black clouds began closing in on the rip again and the sparkles that were falling seemed to dissolve in the air before they reached the earth.  However there was one area of the tear that stayed open and actually looked like it was getting larger.  As I looked closer, there was a crowd gathered under the opening and the whole crowd was singing and shouting praises to God and dancing and celebrating boisterously.  As they did, the tear in the clouds kept getting bigger and bigger and the sparkles that were falling seemed to increase into streams of flowing gold dust on their way down that made it all the way to the throng below.

Lord of the Pond

man-turtle-sunsetYou appeared as a turtle today moving along a dusty roadway beside a snail and a white grub. On the horizon is the figure of a man and a silhouette of a cross in front of a setting sun. As I watched, the turtle began running toward the man, wiggling his feet desperately and scooting along more quickly than one would expect. The snail turned to the right and moved off the road while the grub just started burrowing down into the road itself.

After a very long time, the turtle got to within a few feet of the man and then stopped, seemingly unable to move another inch. He was only a short distance from the man but still the turtle could no longer move another muscle.

The turtle set down his shell and pulled in his arms and legs and rested his head on the ground. As I watched, I saw what looked like a tear developing in the turtle’s eye.

Then the man, who had stood motionless and statuesque until this point, took two steps forward and picked up the turtle. He carried him over a small hill where the road had ended, and set the turtle down in a beautiful clean clear pond of water.

I saw the man call to a crow and a skunk and commissioned them to go and eat the others and then he called all the animals left around the pond to join in a celebration and the whole scene sprang to life with crickets, frogs, birds, and wind whistling through the grass. As he watched, the man smiled and was very pleased.

Tale of Two Wheels

Today you are a wagon, filled beyond your capacity with your payload covered with an old dingy canvas tarp. Your wooden sides are weathered and creaky, held up by a few spindly timbers that look themselves to be nearing a breaking point. Your cargo is held aloft on old wooden pioneer wagon wheels and the wooden spokes are also weathered and worm-holed.

I see you leaning to one side on the edge of a road on a cloud covered, misty dreary day. The road is wide and has solid gravel paving most of the path but one of your wheels has managed to find a very deep rut at the very edge of the roadway and it is lodged deep in that rut, covered deeper by the mud from the wet weather. wagonWheelThe other wheel is strong looking, with smooth well varnished spokes and steel capped wooden edging that has had great care taken in its painting and upkeep. It is well situated on the road but is tied by the axle to the wheel which is stuck in the mud so the whole wagon cannot move.

As people walk by they see you stuck on the side but one by one, they notice you and move to the other side of the road casually and pass by trying desperately to appear like they don’t even see you. Some busy themselves specifically while they pass you, by opening books, or rummaging through their handbags, or by engaging in conversations with those they are with. But in each case these activities only begin at the sight of your duress, and end after they pass you by.

Then I see an old beggar man, dressed in grungy looking clothes with a long beard and a weathered face. He walks with a tall straight walking stick and doesn’t look to the left or to the right as he walks along the road. Long before he sees you his path is adjusted and as he approaches you it becomes apparent that his path is directly on course for you. When he gets to you he doesn’t stop to assess anything but immediately gets to work with his bare hands digging down into the mud beside your lodged wheel. When he has dug deep enough, he takes his straight walking stick and lays it on the ground in front of your wheel, lodging it under the lead edge. Then he moves to the front of the wagon and lifts your hitch and begins pulling. With a slow constant gradual movement he easily pulls you out of the ditch and straightens you out onto the middle of the road way. Just as he does, a crowd of people have gathered and are standing around watching.

Then he looks at the crowd, then at you. In one fluid motion he grabs a corner of your dingy canvas tarp and throws it violently off the top of your cargo, sending it far off into the ditch. Uncovered now is a huge pile of gold coins and diamond gemstones. When the crowd sees them they look back at the old beggar to see what he will do next but he has also transformed. He too had cast off his own grungy robes and threw them into the ditch and in the place of a beggar is now a regal looking tall officer dressed in a regal looking white uniform with a captain’s hat now resting on his head.

Angels of the Sand and Cloud

I saw a sea of sand that stretched for miles and miles. Some of it formed small hills or valleys but it was mostly very flat. Over the landscape I saw an angel flying close to the earth holding a sack. He reached into his sack and with his fingertip he pulled out a single drop of liquid gold and dropped it onto the ground like a seed. The drop was absorbed by the sand.

Then I looked again and there were multitudes of angels all flying around the same sandy sea all of them were reaching into their sacks and pulling out the droplets of gold and dropping them on the ground. It was a gentle smooth operation where none of them appeared to be hurried.

Then I saw a black and bluish cloud gathering on the horizon and a very large angel stood beside it holding what looked like a leash or harness. It was pulling back the cloud but the cloud was looking restless and ready to burst out any moment.

The sea of planting angels withdrew when they were finished and as soon as the sky over the sandy sea was cleared, the angel withholding the cloud let the cloud loose. It rushed out over the sand and spread out to cover the entire landscape and the sky became as black as nightAngel_Restraining_Clouds.jpg

Rain started to come down in torrents and splashed violently onto the ground.

As it did, little golden polka dots of light started shining out of the sand and began growing. As they grew they got bigger and started connecting to each other until there was only polka dots of sand left, but even those disappeared once the light got big enough. Then the light seemed to sprout like popcorn and ballooned into the sky pushing back the rain and the cloud until a beautiful blue sky appeared again but this time the light was coming from the gold mass instead of from the sun.

 

Triumphant Trapeze

I saw a man with amazing muscular definition, an athlete with great strength and mobility. He was reaching out over the edge of a cliff and driving a strong iron rod into the rock of the side of the cliff. It seemed he was simply pushing the rod into the rock without boring a hole. Then he leapt over the cliff and with one arm grabbed a hold of that rod while he plunged other rods into the stone with his other arm.

The man was powerful, strong and graceful. He moved all over the side of the mountain face with ease, making his movement look like he was flying but he was simply swinging from rod to rod until the whole side of stone had rods planted solidly over the face like a giant set of monkey bars. I looked closer and saw etchings in each bar that read things like “Victory Over Addiction”, “Strength of Character”, “Awakened from Slumber” and “Distraction Destroyer”.

As he swung, I saw a spandex sash stretched across his chest with the title Prince of Peace on it. I watched him swinging from rod to rod… using his arms and knees to spin on each rod until he descended on the iron bars down to just above ground level where he caught hold of both your hands. Without interrupting his swing at all, he swung you up high into the air, flipping you into a mid-air somersault. Somehow, he flashed across two more bars and ended up hanging by his knees from a rod just above the peak of your launch and caught you again, before he placed your hands on the bars.

You were shocked, surprised and scared but then he grabbed hold of some of the rocky crags beside where you hung, looked straight in your eyes and smiling, he coaxed you “Let’s have some fun!

Together you started swinging from rod to rod; at first you were very cautious but when you saw that you never missed and He was always there to catch you, your flight became more fluid, confident and relaxed. Then you were both swinging back and forth off the rods like champion gold medal gymnasts.

As the picture panned out, I could see the side of the mountain beginning to light up with your movements until the whole section that had the rods shone like a beacon to the entire valley below. It was lit by the glory of the performance of you and the gymnastic Prince of Peace and all the inhabitants of the valley watched in wonder and were drawn to come closer.

When they all gathered at the base of the mountain you both swung down and you began to teach the crowds about having fun with God while the Prince simply stood beside you with his arm on your shoulder, smiling and laughing every now and then. Every person in the crowd was drinking from crystal glasses that were filled with water and clear wine, and everyone’s attention was riveted on your message.

Plainly Speaking

You’re weeping…

I saw angels surrounding you as your head is bowed and your heart is filled with discouragement.

When I looked up, I saw you driving in a car, with miles of cars behind you. All the drivers are honking their horns at you, and hanging out of their windows, waving their fists at you. I saw you studying them in your rear view mirrors, and hanging your head.

But I looked in front of your car and saw a family of ducks, with wee little ducklings all huddled together on the middle of the road and between you and the ducks I saw an angel, dressed in a construction hat and reflective vest, holding a stop sign in one hand and holding up his other hand in a motion to stop.

Then I heard a voice from heaven saying “Do not be discouraged! Lift up your eyes and look to Me! You are seeking approval from man, but you will not find any there. Yet you still choose to stand against the masses for what is true and what is right. Because you have not bent your will to please man, I will not withhold my will to bless you and to show kindness to you and to give you my favour from this day forward. You will no longer see the faces of discouraging men, but I will change their hearts before you as you stand for even the smallest things. I am making you into a leader and you will become someone people seek out so that they may ask your input on heavy decisions. Continue to stand for what is right. Continue to show compassion on all my creation and continue to be willing to be ridiculed if necessary for your actions but never feel less than who you really are. I have called you special, I have chosen you as my own child and if anyone comes after you in their own frustration, I will crush their assaults and turn their intentions against them so they will make themselves out to be fools and I will put their foolishness on display to discourage others. Never doubt my affections for you and always know that whatever you set your heart to do, I will do with you and provide whatever you need.
