A warning

During a time of worship I saw a lion devouring a man… the man was in the lion’s mouth horizontally. His head was to the left and his feet were hanging out to the right. I won’t show you a picture, it was gruesome. The above picture will suffice. Taken from the famous YouTube video, the video captures the same metaphor..   what would happen if the glass wasn’t there? I believe there are those who are oblivious to the lion inches away.. staring at them behind glass. Well my friends, I believe the glass is coming down! These are the words that came to me after I saw the picture in my minds eye:

I will strike down my leaders who are not about Me
I will cast them off their positions
(I saw the Lord’s strong mighty hand sweep across the United States.
In one swipe, many fell leaving several open positions)
They will be devoured by the lion
For my word warns to be self controlled and alert.
Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.
NO, these ones will not be in their positions any longer.
I the Lord will not allow it!
NO!

My people, the people I am releasing, the people I am raising up
THEY will take those positions! I will position them to be ready to step into the open roles.
They will speak My Word
They will proclaim My coming
They will reflect My glory!

Next I saw long skinny canoes.. ten to twenty of them. They looked to be homemade or partially homemade as I saw birchbark on the side of the one in focus and wooded branches woven together inside. The canoes were strong, sturdy, and leak proof. The canoes were packed with supplies and had one to two people rowing. The canoes with two people were married couples -only couples who BOTH have strong individual relationships with Christ. The people were confident and calm like trained athletes. They looked to be about 300 feet off the shore. The sky ahead was full of billowing BLACK clouds. It reminded me of the black skies of tornado weather. The calm before the storm…

They (the Lord’s faithful people) will row their humble canoes into the stormy waves
They will row forth with faith
Not fearing the black storm clouds or the prevailing winds
They will not fear the mighty waves that taunt their canoes with lies of destruction

No, they will speak to the storm
With the PEACE I have placed inside
I am raising up an army that will not fear
They will row and go forth into any storm
Because their eyes are fixed on Me

Their love for me is their goal

They trust me

I believe the handmade aspect of the canoes is  metaphor for our personal relationship with Christ. It can’t be bought. We have to have build our own! The canoes that were partially handmade – I believe they represents those who were lucky to have a mentor or ministry to jump into and grow with. They had help building the framework of their canoes but the rest of the canoe was created individually. I hesitate to share words like this because I can’t say 100% this was from God or “thus sayeth the Lord.” I am simply sharing what I saw and what I felt impressed to write. Only time will tell what happens! What I do know is that things are stirring… I am anxious to see what the next few years hold.

Galatians 5:22-23
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.

Those not walking with God will not have the fruit of self control.

1 Peter 5:8
Be self-controlled and alert.
Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.

Prison

“Every prison has a door”

You don’t have to stay in your hell

There is hope,  there is joy to be found

Stop the pain

Every prison has a door

Let Christ unlock your prison and lead you to freedom

Blossoming Spring

Just as the cherry trees and apple trees are blossoming

So are my people!

The vines are about to burst forth with my fruit and provision

The sweet juicy fragrance of my presence

It is the spring of the last year in my time

I call you MINE

I call you mine.

I am yours.

You in me. Me in you.

We are together.

You are not alone.

I am always here to talk to you.

It’s my gift to you.

Use it!

Cultivate it!

Oh! The blessings I want to give to you! Joy.. peace.. provision.. favor..

The things the world can’t obtain by their strivings.

So are you going to take it?

You can hear me.

Start trusting me.

I will help you discern.

I will let you know when it is not of me.

You’re going to have to move beyond wondering if it is yourself.

If it lines up with the Bible, then it’s me.

I am here to help you.

I’m here to love you. To wrap my arms around you.

To accept you.

You forget that I created you.

I know you.

I know your thoughts, feelings, dreams…

even those you’re not aware of or about to begin.

I want to love you.

But I cannot petition to you because I am a gentleman.

You have to choose.

You have to jump.

You have to trust.

You’ll learn to trust my voice.

Faith to see

During worship today I saw an ugly frog in my mind’s eye. These are the words that came to my mind:

The world sees me as a frog

But your faith is the kiss

That activates your eyes to see your prince


Your bridegroom
Your lover
Your friend
Waiting with arms wide open
Waiting for you

John 14:17
“The world cannnot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. “

 He is in pursuit of YOU!  🙂

Thankful

Today I got annoyed at someone’s crinkling cough drop wrapper in church… it wasn’t just a quick unwrap and pop in the mouth but a 30 minute unwrappppp. haha Have you ever been there? Forgive me Lord! I was reminded of this poem.:

  • I am thankful for the loud snores of a husband because he is home with me, not in bed with someone else.
  • For the taxes that I pay, because it means that I am employed.
  • For the mess to clean after a party, because it means that I have been surrounded by friends.
  • For the dirty dishes I have to clean because it means I have food to eat.
  • For a lawn that needs mowing, windows that need cleaning, and gutters that need fixing, because it means I have a home.
  • For all the complaining I hear about the government, because it means that we have freedom of speech.
  • For the parking spot I find at the far end of the parking lot, because it means I am capable of walking and have transportation.
  • For my huge heating bill, because it means I am warm.
  • For the lady behind me in church that sings off key because it means I can hear.
  • For the pile of laundry and ironing, because it means I have clothes to wear.
  • For the alarm that goes off in the early morning hours, because it means I am alive.
