A Daily Word from the Word for Thursday, July 25, 2013
“Therefore God also has highly exalted Him [Jesus] 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 of those on earth, and of those under the earth, and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” – Philippians 2:9-11
On Thursday, 7/18/2013, the Lord gave me a dream of the End Times; not the specifics of the end times, but rather the assurance that God’s people would be protected!
It was dusk in my dream. When I awoke, I asked the Lord: “Lord, was it evening or was it dusk?” And the Lord specifically stated to me that it was dusk. When I looked up the word “dusk,” it means “end times, running out of time” (© 2011, Thompson and Beale, The Divinity Code: To Understand Dreams and Visions). This bore witness in my spirit, as I had sensed that this was a dream about the End Times.
There were multitudes of people. Although I could not see specific faces, The Spirit of the Living God told my spirit that these were His righteous sons and daughters, those who were part of the end-time church. We were all standing on a hilltop. It was not a mountaintop, but a hilltop, and we were all looking in the same direction. I am not sure which way we were facing, and as I inquired of the Lord, He stated that this was not for me to know.
The Lord told me very clearly to warn those who read this revelation to not jump to the conclusion that we were facing in a particular direction based on Scripture telling us which way Jesus will return (Zechariah, Matthew, Acts, 2 Thessalonians, or Revelation). God stated that the way we were facing, the calamity to come, and the direction with which His Son will return are completely separate matters in terms of method and direction.
Back to the hilltop: I have been privileged to be on God’s mountaintop many times; and this place that the end-time sons and daughters of the Most High God were standing, was a hill and not a mountain. A “mountain” in reference to God represents “a spiritual high place, exaltation, God’s Glory” (© 2011, Traut, Interpreting Dreams); whereas a “hill” (for the purpose of this dream) represents “strength, place of prosperity, place of revelation, military high ground (Thompson and Beale).
I asked “why did you place us on a hill, Lord, and not with you on your mountaintop?” And the Lord said to me “My Glory, for this purpose, will be different than what my children have encountered. My sons and daughters have been able to stand in My glory, where no flesh can stand (1 Corinthians 1:29), because of the Mercy Seat, where My Son has protected my children with His Blood. Up until now, My people have experienced My Glory wrapped in mercy. But this time, no flesh will be able to stand in My presence because I come to deliver My judgment upon the earth. And because this time, My Glory is wrapped in judgment, there remains no sacrifice for sin for those who have not received my Son (Hebrews 10:26).
Up until now, My children have been able to come boldly to My throne of grace, because of My Son, the High Priest, The Propitiation for the sins of the world. The time has come where I have shut the door, and access to the Mercy Seat is no longer available. Those who have already entered in, those who wear the Blood of the Lamb, are Mine; however, those who have not received the Atoning Sacrifice, I do not know. The time of My mercy has ended. I have retracted My arm of mercy. I have done all that I can do to extend My Merciful arm to rescue all who would grab hold from My impending judgment. But I am a Just God as well as a Merciful God, and My time of mercy has ended, and My time of judgment has begun.
Because of this, I have placed my sons and daughters on a hill, to protect them, for they need not fear! They are mine! They belong to me! Do I not take care of what belongs to Me? Do I not provide for my children? Of course, I do!
But just as with Moses, whose eyes I had to shield so he would not perish, I must do for My end-time children. The veil was torn for every believer; but in these last days, the veil is impassable in this time of My judgment; so I must protect My children from My Glory in this way. I must shield them from My judgment.”
We watched as asteroids began to pierce the atmosphere and assault the earth. An asteroid, for this purpose, means “message of destruction/judgment, Christ’s return” (IBID). I asked the Lord if this was the way that the earth would be destroyed, and He stated to me that I was not to know. Whether literal or figurative, this was to be kept hidden from me. The focus was to be on what the asteroids represented: a message of destruction/judgment, Christ’s return.
We all then went into the forest. It was a beautiful place! There was so much plant life in this forest! This refuge was the greenest green that I had ever seen! The color green represents life, anointing, and the apostolic (Traut, Thompson and Beale). It was filled with wonderful air that I cannot even describe! It wasn’t regular air, but had a different consistency and emitted a sweet flavor. The air also caused us to see differently. The air was God’s Holy Spirit!!! We were completely seeing in the spiritual realm!
A “forest,” for this purpose, means “life, protection, church, multitude of people, army of mighty men” (Traut, Thompson and Beale). The asteroids were not hitting the forest; because again, this is a place of protection created and provided by God for His end-time church. As soon as we entered the forest, we no longer were attached to the world or its judgment. We could no longer see, hear, or know what was going on outside of the forest.
The forest had a river running through it, which then split into two rivers: a high river that went upward, and a low river that went downward. I said “Lord, are these streams or rivers, because they look like rivers; yet they cannot be, because we are in a forest.” The Lord replied “These are indeed rivers. My forest is vast, and my rivers run through it.” A “river” represents “Spirit of God, spirit of man, righteousness” (© 2010, Milligan, Understanding the Dreams you Dream). The rivers were wonderful! They were overflowing with life! They were running over their banks! It was glorious!!!
Just then prophets appeared out of nowhere! The prophets were there to guide us and take us to where God had instructed. We followed the prophets along the higher river. This was the end of my dream.
I had kept this dream until this time, which is when the Lord gave me the remaining revelation and told me to release it to the entire world.
For those who are already in Christ, God wants this revelation to serve as peace, comfort, and reassurance for you that you have nothing to fear because the Lord your God will protect you, guide you, and keep you safe.
For those who have not accepted the Hand of God’s Mercy by accepting His Son Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, let this serve as a “last call” from the Throne-room of Heaven.
“Jesus said to him, ‘I am the Way, and the Truth, and the Life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.” – John 14:6
“Later the others also came. ‘Lord, Lord,’ they said, ‘open the door for us!’ But He [Jesus] replied, ‘Truly I tell you, I don’t know you.’ Therefore keep watch, because you do not know the day or the hour.” – Matthew 25:11-13
“There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when you see Abraham and Isaac and Jacob and all the prophets in the kingdom of God, and yourselves thrust out.” Luke 13:28
“They called to the mountains and the rocks, “Fall on us and hide us from the face of Him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb.” – Revelation 6:16
“He who testifies to these things says, ‘Surely I [Jesus] am coming quickly.’ Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus! The Grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.” – Revelation 22:20-21.
Father, thank You for Your mercy. Thank You for making a way out of no way, and making a way back to You through Your Son, Jesus Christ. We call upon You, Most Holy Father, to give us a heart for the lost. Break our heart for what breaks Yours, which includes leading the lost to Christ, Who in turn, reconciles these precious souls back to You. Supernaturally place Your end-time Kingdom work inside of us. Help us, by your Holy Spirit, to discern those who need Jesus, and speak Your Living Words through us to them, calling each lost life to be found in Christ. In Jesus Name, we thank You that we are calling in the lost for your Glory. Amen and Amen.
Take action! Challenge your thinking! Choose to be part of God’s end-time church. Allow God’s Holy Spirit to impart and stir up His end-time Kingdom work inside of you. Ask, decree, and declare that you are the Father’s end-time voice. Allow God to be your thoughts, words, and actions. And continue to fight the good fight of calling in the lost; for God, your Giver of Life, has already given you the victory!
If you have never received Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior, I encourage you to do it today, right now, by saying this prayer out loud: “Jesus, forgive me for my sins. I am sorry. I truly desire to be saved and reconciled back to God, my Father, through You. I receive Your sinless Blood as payment in full for my sins—past, present, and future. I now call You my Lord and Savior, and invite You to live within my heart, and to permanently live within me. I make You Lord over me and over my life from this moment on. Amen.” Congratulations! You are now a child of God, made whole and made new, by the Blood of Jesus Christ!
