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.

Un-Explainable Success

Room-full-of-boxesYou are confused today… but in a really great way. I see you looking around. You’re in a large room filled with boxes. Every size and shape of box is in the room and every box is labelled to you, with love, from Jesus.

You look around to see where they keep coming from but you can’t figure it out.

As you stand in the room puzzled, a doorbell rings and you go to the front door and open it. On the porch in front of you are another stack of boxes.

You look to see who brought them and you see what looks like a delivery truck driving away. On the back is a company logo that says “HSD – Holy Spirit Deliveries… prospering everything you touch through the power of blessing.”

 

The Israelite Farmer

chair7This morning I felt a very strong urge to leave the normal format I’ve used for these writings in favour of a very specific word for someone. Today I saw your past track record of accomplishment and you have been very wise in your daily work. You have insight into the way things work and can see needs before they arise. I saw your past work as if you were one of the Israelite farmers who wandered the wilderness for 40 years, but you were the one who kept your bulls separate from your cows except when there was breeding required to keep the numbers constant. You allowed for animals to provide for sacrificial requirements but did not increase you herd while you were busy travelling. It took wisdom and foresight for you to know when to breed them and when to restrain them.

Of course you are not an actual Israelite farmer but your work has garnered the same practical benefit to this point in your life as if you were. But you have not valued your merit in the diligence with which you’ve worked like this. You have thought nothing of this style but this attribute you have is something which the world has forgotten how to develop. There is a great vacuum in the western world of this practical common fore-sense and you are about to be promoted into new areas in your life where you can begin to raise up other people to develop this attribute in their own lives.

I see your current business life continuing in your care but without your direct involvement. You will begin to see people gathering around you who have already started learning how you think and one of these is ready to take over the regular duties for you, so you can be freed up to share your gift with many. This person will not be who you expected it to be so when you find yourself in friction with someone, check your heart to see if the Lord is revealing them to you. They will be in friction with you because you both share the same attributes but they have their own style of expressing it. You have to let them do it their way or your business will be hurt. Guide them in your desires for the overall outcome only and leave the rest to them, trusting the Lord to carry out the right plans.

Then begin watching for divine connections, meetings and introductions to bring new people around you who will need this developed in them. You will need to pour excessive patience into the teaching of this natural ability you have because those who need it most will find it the most difficult to understand. Rely on God to lead you. Listen constantly for his direction and for ideas to help explain or show the principles you need to get across.

I see this becoming an organization that develops into an internet course with conferences that are held all over the world and the success of this training business will provide an abundance for you that you have never dreamed of. Don’t worry about enjoying some of it for the worker is worthy of his hire. Remember the main purpose of the resources is to continue the operation and expansion of the business so more and more people can receive it though.

Above all, turn your attention inward to your family for though you have this great gift for business, you have not used it effectively for your family. Listen to God and receive supernatural ideas to sweep your family off their feet. Woo them, brood over them and let them be the first class you graduate from this process. Remember your gift has been used in business but the teaching of it is intended to be applied in living life effectively first, and then to spill over into business.

Little Toy Track

chair7I saw a picture of you as a much younger child who has just opened a door and seen a huge amazing miniature electric slot car race track. The room in front of him is enormous and the entire thing is filled with one single race track that twists and winds in countless turns. Some of the track is stacked to move over top of track and some descends and moves around underneath track but in the entire room there is never more than 1 to 2 feet of straight track.

The smile on your face goes from ear to ear and you sit down and pick up a control and the car in front of you starts to race as you squeeze the trigger. Immediately the car hits the first turn and flips off the track.

I see an older man who smiles and walks over to the car and picks it up and places it back on the track. You thank him and squeeze the trigger again but the car simply moves another foot and flips of the next turn.

The man continues to smile and patiently replaces the car once more for you and again you are ready to play.

This pattern repeats and repeats while you continue trying to play with it but your frustration disappointment and discouragement build with each crash. However the smile and the patience of the old gentleman never changes. Each time the car jumps the track he replaces it patiently. Strangely, no matter where the car leaves the track, the old man is always able to reach it easily.

Finally your frustration and anger with the car are overwhelming and you throw the control down, and rest your upset face in both hands as you lean on your elbows at the table where the track begins. Then the old man walks over beside you and picks up the controller. He places it back in your hand but puts his finger on the trigger and covers it with yours.

You squeeze the trigger again but his finger won’t move as far as the trigger was moving before. It almost feels like it isn’t moving at all but you look up and see the car is now moving on the racetrack fairly well.

A look of delight radiates across your face and you beam with excitement. The man isn’t looking at the car though, he is watching you intently with a very big smile on his face now. Then he touches your shoulder and very slowly takes the controller with his other hand. He then places it very slowly into your hand, removing his own finger from the trigger. As he removes his hands from yours, he pats the back of your hand and then places one arm over your shoulders.

From then on you both watch with contentment as the car races around the track slightly slower but never falling off again.

The Crow and the Eagle

chair6I saw a picture of you this morning. You are standing in the middle of an endlessly wide wheat field drooping with the weight of needing to be harvested, and you’re reaching out with your arms, because your eyes are tightly closed. You are looking for something and getting discouraged because you can’t see with your eyes.

A crow flies by and lands on your head. As it sits there, it cocks his head from side to side checking to see your eyeballs… because he wants to pluck them out and eat them. You seem distracted only slightly that he is sitting on your head but you continue to reach out with your arms searching for something.

Even though the sun is shining, there is a loud crack of thunder and out of nowhere a huge eagle appears soaring overhead. It remains silent though and swoops down and grabs the crow in its talons, ripping him away from your head and carries him off past the horizon.

In moments the eagle returns and lands in front of you. Even though the eagle is standing on the ground, it is the same height as you are and with a wing he reaches out and gently swats your head.

Instantly you open your eyes.

As soon as you do the eagle speaks. “Look around you and call out for what you are searching for.”

You seem embarrassed and giggle a little with shyness.

Again the eagle reaches out and swats your head gently.

This time your body changes and you suddenly become very serious. Looking around you see the field, completely full of wheat and ready for harvest.

“I need a barn and silos” you say breaking the silence. They instantly appear to one side.

“I need a combine as well as a tractor with a large wagon” and instantly one appears on the other side, already harvesting the wheat.

“Can I have my heart fixed too?” Your question draws another gentle swat from the eagle who then speaks again.

“You are not a guest here… this is your assignment. You may call whatever you need and whatever will keep you from distraction. This is what you have been designed to do. Some things are good for you and some are not. Be careful what you call into being.”

As soon as he finished speaking, he jumped up and flew away.

Then the whole scene dissolved and there was a lake of peace where the field used to be. On the shore is a cabin with an inviting porch; a plume of smoke rises from the chimney and you are on the shore running toward the lake.

You continue running out onto the dock and dive into the lake full speed without stopping.

Then the vision ends.

This is a new day

This is a new day.

Turn over a leaf a new one. Don’t worry about which leaf it is, leave that worry to God. You have been hurting for a couple of years now and though some may say it was your own fault, that isn’t how God looks at you. in your life seems to look higher than where you feel you are right now anyway. Sometimes you look back, (well a lot lately it seems actually,) but you’re looking back with a heart full of sadness, broken dreams, disappointment in yourself, and anger at someone you love. It seems you have had every opportunity to change things and yet they are still not healing. You still have to face every day with difficulty and go to bed every night with tears on your pillow.

Change is on its way. God wants you to hear that message. Change is happening right now… there is a shift that started in the Heavens, and has already echoed in the earth. But that change is now affecting situations all around your world… YOUR world. You are in the center of a stage that has an audience of God alone. You are dressed in dancing clothes and you look amazing. As you stand up and wipe sadness away from your face, the softness of the rooms lighting dims and you are highlighted in a cone of a floodlight. There is warmth in the room and expectation in the air.

God waves a conductor’s stick and there is suddenly a sense of unity in the silence… like the calm expectation of a whole orchestra waiting for the signal to begin. Then before any sound is heard, you move an arm. Then your head tilts to one side slightly and music starts to flow into the room out of your heart. It is a flood of single tone harmonic fluid that flows freely out into the air and then picks up a rhythm so that the beat is caught by your feet and your legs finally move. Behind you there are 3 figures that echo the simplest of movements highlighted by your dancing which is now moving more gracefully and smoothly like you are finally relaxing into a new space. The room lighting increases as you see a warm loving smile spread across God’s face.

The dancers behind you now start to move into their own unique expressions and suddenly the 4 of you are participating in conversation – you dance first with a smooth leap, and then the 3 others respond in a different but complimentary move continuing all in unique movements that blend in perfect choreography until at the crescendo of the music the 4 of you join hands and the entire hall is instantly ablaze with intense white light. Jesus suddenly appears dancing in the middle of the group but He is not held by the confines of gravity so He swirls and sings over and around all of you spinning in a way that brings an intense fullness to the sound which amazes everyone and you all fall backward and lay in contentment on the stage gazing up into the Father’s eyes.

Then the light fades again until it is simply a cone shining down onto your face and your lips part and form the simple words:

This was a good day.”
