Vision: Jesus' Golden Sash

As I was praying this morning I had this experience.

I was praying and weeping in thanks for all of His goodness to me. I was praying that He would show me His will concerning some things for I had strayed from His will, though He had protected me from any real harm.

As I prayed, I began to feel the Lord just drenching my spirit with life. As this experience came, I could only praise Him. This experience is not uncommon for many Christians. Father God is my source of life, deep rest and hope. Also when this happens, I am moved to speak in a spiritual language or in tongues. Usually, I interpret what I am saying and most of the time it is praise to God.

This was happening when I began to see above me Christ dressed in white and a golden sash across the front of His waist. It was not fastened around His back but extended out to His left and His right. I could see angels to the left and to the right of Him.  I often begin to see spiritual things when I am worshiping God. I wanted to continue basking in this very intimate time with Father God so I focused on this. But soon the Father made it clear He wanted me to focus on what was manifesting above and before me with Christ. So, I did.

The sash was like a pure golden ribbon and it began to extend further and further out from the east to the west. I began to understand as the words 'east to west' entered my mind this was likely regarding the second coming of Christ. I continued to pray in tongues but my language changed twice. One language that is for the lost, specifically and another language that I only speak when I have been in the presence of God for a long period of time and pray for the needs of other Christians.

As the ribbon/sash continued to extend, I began to feel Christ further above me and the length of the sash being astronomically long. Soon I was brought up into the stars and saw Earth, Christ and the angels. The sash of bright gold now surrounded the Earth.

For as lightning that comes from the east is visible even in the west, so will be the coming of the Son of Man.-Matthew 24:27

This scripture came to mind and I was certain this is what I was being shown. I then asked God, 'Why are you showing me this?'

I then saw a trumpet. Then again, I saw the  beauty of space and Earth and Christ, the sash and the angels. To the left of the planet I heard and 'felt' the voice of God.

'PRAY!!!'

I don't think I can explain that experience in words. Everything vibrated. The entire earth shook. Everything shook. I shook. My body felt the vibration. I lost my bearings for a moment. This was the might of the Living God.

Then He softly said, 'The world is full of sin and my people are full of error.'

The vision ended and I was trembling and weeping. I was so humbled I just knelt for a while praising God. I cannot say that I was 'afraid'. But I can say that I felt and knew that God is mighty and powerful and I will revere Him. I will obey His command.

7 Cultural Mountains is Antichrist Theology

Sometimes things are obvious. For example, I began a study and posted about the New Apostolic Reformation that has goals that I believe are antiChristian. I began to try to understand what they mean when they speak of the '7 mountains' they must 'take' or 'own'. First, I found that the idea originated from something separate.

In 1975 a few Christians discussed their concerns about America and growing immorality. They both began to feel Christians needed to infiltrate 7 different areas of our culture. Their belief is that culture is where the battle exists for righteousness in our nation.  Later a Christian author later wrote a book about it which brought it to the forefront again.

The 7 cultural mountains are:

1. Arts and Entertainment
2. Business
3. Education
4. Family
5. Government
6. Media
7. Religion

With the belief that these areas are the battlefield, there are needed  'change agents' to scale these mountains to 'restore' America back to God.

I BELIEVE THIS IS BIBLICLY WRONG. Christ is our example and He did not change the culture. He preached the TRUTH. He instructed us to preach the gospel; to share the truth of Christ. We are not called to change the world or to make a nation righteous. We are called to bear witness to Christ, just as the disciples did. We are called to sacrifice EVERYTHING so that others can know Jesus. And as they come to know Jesus, most likely a change in culture will follow. BUT IT BEGINS WITH JESUS. HE HAS THE POWER, NOT MAN.

The New Apostolic Reformation has taken it a step further into evil by believing they can usher in the return of Christ as they gain the wealth of the land.

ALL OF THIS IS ANTICHRIST. And most evangelical churches are following one or more aspects of these demonic doctrines.

But back to what I said. Some things are just obvious. Though the scripture basis regarding the 7 cultural mountains is Isaiah 2:2 which says:

And it shall come to pass in the last of the days or times, that the mountain of the LORD's house shall be confirmed as the head of the mountains and shall be exalted above the hills; and all the Gentiles shall flow unto it.

But I don't believe this scripture is a good basis for this agenda. There is one God. There is one mountain. And Isaiah is talking about the Gentiles being grafted into the vine (with the Jews). I don't think he is saying that the world will revere Him as God of all for we live in a fallen world, that is if Isaiah's prophecy isn't about Christ's thousand year reign.

I would encourage people to look to Revelation 17 and the reference to the 7 mountains (not the one as in Isaiah).

Revelation 17

AND there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters:
2 With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication.
3 So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I SAW A WOMAN SIT upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.
4 And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication:
And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.
And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.
7 And the angel said unto me, Wherefore didst thou marvel? I will tell thee the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carrieth her, which hath the seven heads and ten horns.
9 And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are SEVEN MOUNTAINS, ON WHICH THE WOMAN SITTETH.
15 And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.
18 And THE WOMAN which thou sawest IS THAT GREAT CITY, which reigneth over the kings of the earth.

I know there are a lot of people who believe the 7 mountains are the 7 hills or Rome. Perhaps they are the 7 cultural mountains Christians are being encouraged to scale and rule over.

I found another article regarding those who support 7 mountain 'theology'. It was titled 'BEYOND SALVATION IS OCCUPATION.'

It's wrong. And I fear it is going to lead us to some terrible times in this country and for the world.

Dominionism/End of Time Transfer of Wealth

WARNING
Some evangelical Christian churches began talking about an 'end time transfer of wealth' to Christians (as spoken in a proverb in Proverbs). They began talking about man taking Dominion (as God spoke to Adam and Eve). And this is all supposed to usher in the return of Christ. Because the wealth will help rebuild the temple. 

1. Money doesn't build the temple; the decision to does. 
2. We cannot do ANYTHING to 'usher' in the return of Christ. If we could, then we would be God. 

So, this view is antiChrist. Rafael Cruz (father of presidential candidate Ted Cruz) and many other spirit filled, evangelical church pastors believe this, preach this and teach this. They are responsible also for bringing Christianity into the Republican party.

IT IS WRONG. 

Read Matthew 24 if you want to understand things about the end times. It will give you insight. 

I have said for a long time, based on the things God has shown me, that I do believe that at some point, true Christians will no longer be a part of the 'organized' church. Perhaps it will be for a time. Or perhaps it will precede the coming of Christ.

After reading the intentions and goals of the New Apostolic Reformation, I am beginning to see that the danger and the deception of antiChrist is going to truly be in the places we least expect to see it. In the kind of church I go to.  Yes, evangelical, charismatic churches is where this NAS' agenda exists. Things are making so much more sense and many pieces are coming together quickly for me now. 



Dream: Animals/Nations Fighting

In 2013 I had a very unusual dream. Syria and Egypt were on my mind and in my prayers at the time. So many things were going there at the time.

In the dream, there was a massive sinkhole. As I looked upon it, I began to notice different animals fighting within the sinkhole.

I saw a lion with no mane and it had the face of a human man. I saw a well groomed black dog with a red bow about its neck. I saw a hippopotamus. I saw a large brown bear. I also saw a panda bear.

They fought intensely, though I saw no blood.

I went into my home and I saw the animals again. The lion did not fight but all other animals did.

I believe these animals represent nations. The brown bear represents Russia, the panda China. I believe the lion represents the U.S. and the black dog, England. The hippo is a mystery to me but I have thought it represents Africa and perhaps more specifically Egypt.

This dream could have been about what was going on in late summer 2013. But I have not been given full interpretation for the dream. I believe I am supposed to post this at this time. I believe it will have further meaning. end

Warnings

In late Summer of 2013, God began showing me a complex series of visions regarding angels, soldiers, a sturdy wall of protection, political leaders and demons. I chose not to post all of that. It is very complex. I am simply posting the warnings I felt God told me to give people. I know we are near the end of 2015. Are the warnings a little late? Maybe. I did give the warnings to the public at the time of receiving them. For some time, God has been telling me to go back and read the series of visions. Here are the warnings.

‘The battle draws near. The time comes soon.’
 ‘The wall will soon break.’ 
‘Tell my people to prepare. Tell them to remember my Word. Tell them to seek Me. The words of my Son will sustain them. They alone will sustain them.’
End

"It is early yet."

I believe it was just after Obama was elected president for a second term when I was praying and I had a vision and various spiritual experiences. In them I saw a sadness and stress; concern in Obama's eyes. I had not seen this in him before. An angel was there and I remember making a remark about how Obama did not look sorrowful and the angel responded saying, 'IT IS EARLY YET.'

As time has passed, I still had not seen this troubling look. Here it is nearly the end of 2015 and now I see problems in the world that are more complex than I can recall ever seeing. But it isn't only these problems that have me concerned. The world climate is different. 

Will we be able to find good answers to solve the problems our world faces? Where will refugees go? Can ISIS and other terrorist groups be stopped? Will there be another world war? Are we already in another world war without calling it that?  Muslim extremist groups like ISIS and IS fight for religious reasons. It is a religious war for them. Will Christians extremists rise up and fight Muslims?

Dear God, what is to come? Will Christians fight against Christians? Will an evil man rise up and become a leader over the entire northern hemisphere; possibly the world?

I think Obama will be wearing that look that I could not imagine him wearing. To be honest, I couldn't imagine a scenario being that difficult. I can't explain what I felt in the vision I suppose. Perhaps, I didn't WANT to imagine such a scenario. 

All the things I've been shown. . . they begin to flow together like waters gathering for a great river. The water moves rapidly over rocks and eventually free falls and crashes down violently. There is fear but it does not over power me. It is mild. I trust my life in God's hands. I have faith in Him.

We cannot allow the great sadness turn us to depression. We cannot despair. The sadness must be a fuel to pray and to love others as much as possible.

We cannot allow injustice to cause us to strike out in criminal rage. Let our anger drive us to serve the poor and rejected. Let our anger become our fuel to defy evil. And if the day comes when it is criminal to refuse doing evil, then let us become criminals by doing good. What men think doesn't matter. What God thinks does.

We must continue to be light. We must continue to be good. We must always pray, read and know the gospel. We must remain humble and serve others. We can't let anything extinguish our kindness, hope and love. 

Most big problems in the world don't need many big answers. They simply need all these small ones. We must endure. Love God. Love our neighbor.

France and the New Testament Prophet

I haven't posted in a while. But what has happened in Paris has me thinking in several directions. So, I'm posting.

If there's something I've learned in the 25 years of having dreams, visions and words from God, it is that no human being is perfect. This seems blatantly obvious. But when it comes to people who are prophets and prophetesses, people believe this myth that these specific people are not capable of being wrong. Especially in what they hear from God and share as from God.

It's a big responsibility, in my opinion to assign God's voice to what we hear, dream or experience. This is something that has never changed through the years. I have a healthy fear about being right or wrong about what I am hearing in my spiritual life. At times, the fear has been so strong that I keep much to myself, remaining the intense skeptic I truly am. Recently, I came to a deeper understanding about the relationship a child of God has with God, their Father. This helped me but if that fear of assigning dreams, visions and experiences to God leaves me, then I pray God will make me mute, deaf and take away the use of my hands.

Over the last 12 years, I finally opened up publicly, sharing what was in my journal. It was a big step but it felt right. I've prayed and always pray about what to share, where to share and to whom to share what I believe God has shown me. In taking this step, I came to know a great many who have also had prophetic experiences. There are more out there than people probably realize. Not many have 'followings'. But there were a few I did find that had many followers. I came to know some pretty amazing people. Christians from all over the world. I also came to know some religious and insane people. These were at times amusing, I will admit. Most likely these had unknown psychiatric and physical diagnoses. Yet, I loved them all.

Two prophets stood out to me. These two were those who had great followings. One was from Canada and the other is a Mexican man who lives in California. Were these guys perfect? No. And it goes deeper than just every day living. No one is perfect. But, even in some of the things they shared, I was not or am not certain that they came in line with the Word of God. The American (like 99% of prophets I've encountered in America) was influenced by his political views. Sadly, Satan has successfully found a way to knit together political views and spirituality together. This is a big problem for Americans. I even had to do deep self examination about myself regarding my own political views 'influencing' my interpretation of what I see, hear, dream. We can be wrong in this. We can affect what we experience with God with our own views. Therefore, what we share isn't always pure. Was it from God? In my experience, yes. But it may not be pure.

I think the problem people have when they view prophets and prophetesses, is they revert back to the Old Testament prophets. Those guys could not be wrong. If they were found wrong in anything they prophesied, they were killed. Even prophets who were correct like Isaiah and Zechariah were killed and labeled false prophets by religious people (not spiritual). John The Baptist is the first prophet killed in the New Testament. But I want to talk a moment about Old Testament prophets. It is hard for many Christians to make the distinctions between God in the Old Testament and people living under the Law and God in the New Testament, people living under Grace. Prophecy is not going to be the same now. We are under a different covenant. Grace. We are saved by grace and not by our obedience. We are now viewed as children of God, through the pure blood of Christ Jesus (God in the flesh). Joel prophesied of this as well as David, Isaiah, Daniel and others. God's Spirit now resides within us, following conversion. The Holy Spirit of God in the Old Testament is something very different and very hard for people of this day and time to fathom. The presence of God, the Spirit of God worked in different parameters, based on some elements of the Abrahamic covenant as well as the Law, given to Moses. All of the operations of believers now exist only within the knowledge and faith of Christ and His sacrifice. He gave us the Holy Spirit. And throughout the book of John, we are told the purpose of the Holy Spirit.

'We know in part so we prophesy in part' said the Apostle Paul. This is a very revealing scripture. Even as we prophesy, we are always going to be limited by our knowledge (which can only be the sum of our experiences which means in one life time, we come to know a very small percentage of all there is to know). I began to see that one of the more popular prophets I came to know was correct in many aspects. There are other things that I am undecided on and then others that I basically discount as being from God. I can't be the black and white thinker following the Law of Moses in the Old Testament and all the guidelines given regarding prophets. God can use people in amazing ways. I rarely completely count someone as a false prophet. Perhaps they have false prophesies. But I also find they have true prophesies.

As I've taken in and read many dreams, visions and experiences from many people through the years, many of them have stayed with me, heavily. I don't have a good memory in general. I have a great memory when it comes to things I've experienced spiritually myself and others' too.

When this happened in Paris, it came fully back to my mind what this strange man in California had seen on several occasions. It was about Paris burning and France experiencing great turmoil and evil. I couldn't help but wonder, 'has this come to pass finally?' I hope this is the end of it. I hope there will not be more horror in France.

I'm not really a strong person. I've learned this about myself. I am overly sensitive to suffering and horrors that go on in the world. I don't watch the news. For the most part, I've stopped reading prophecies and dreams of others. Darkness being reported by media makes me physically sick, weak and really depressed. I have come to find most American prophecy to be biased and based often in their political views so that just brings me down. But there is another reason I put myself in greater seclusion. That reason is that I don't want my own experiences to be affected and be biased. I want what God is showing me to come to me as pure as possible. If I want to know about something going on in the world, I can look it up. The same goes with 'prophets' and 'prophetesses.'

I've been shown so many horrible things to come in this world. It is an interesting thing. I am not a strong person. Maybe this is why He shows me terrible things. In my weakness, His strength is made perfect.

So many things have happened that God said would happen. And many things have happened that others' have shared would happen. There is more to come. I have no timelines or dates. I have become more a scribe; just writing it down as it comes to me, without thinking much about it and then praying about it.

I am extremely sad most of the time. It is all too easy to focus on the darkness and the pain that comes with evil things coming to pass. With every thing that happens, I am faced with the reality that if these things have happened, then most likely, all other things will happen too. In my generation or the next or so on.

I try to find my joy. The world is full of God's joy, love and hope. Some times are harder than others. But I do find joy. There are many dark chapters in the book of time, from beginning to end. Equally, there is great joy, freedom and victory. It's not fairy tale. It is reality that can have a happily ever after. That comes if we will give our lives to Christ and live for Him.
