The Halls of Judgment Experience – 2-3-17
In the vision, I am standing with several people in a tour group and the guide was speaking to us all. He was a shorter man with graying hair and long robes. His kindly face looked at each of us with recognition and then he turned and walked down the corridor. We all followed him and as we walked I looked at the vast corridors that we passed with their marble columns and high ceilings. Many doors lined the walls of the corridors as we passed them by. Angels and saints were busy coming and going through the many doors and hallways.
There was a sense of importance in the air as we walked and I grew more interested with each step. I was familiar with this place. I have been here before, I realize. A great joy welled up in me to see what would happen next. I squeezed as close too the front as I could to hear the guide talking.
“This place is the Halls of Judgment,” the guide said. “Each building, wing, and corridor holds different counsel chambers, judicial chambers, and different courts of operation. The greater the importance of the cases, the higher the chambers and its functions. As you can see by looking upwards.”
We all looked up and you could see stories and stories of other levels of courts and chambers all going higher in the Great Hall. It was almost dizzying to watch all of the heavenly activity at once. I looked back at the guide. He continued, “This wing of the Hall of Judgment is the section that pertains to you the most. This is where the saints preside over counsel chambers, court proceedings, and render judgments in court cases. You are here to learn more about these duties, and proceedings.”
Suddenly a group of saints appeared next to the guide, and they each nodded to the guide and then they each took one of the people among the group with them that I was standing among on a private tour. The tour guide was left standing alone with me, and he motioned for me to walk with him. “Its good to see you back,” he said smilingly. I looked around and said, “I thought I recognized these halls.” He nodded and we walked over to a set of large heavy double doors. They opened as we approached. Inside were various briefing rooms and counsel chambers.
The tour guide then said, “This section of the Hall is where the saints learn to decide cases and render verdicts on behalf of the Counsels of Heaven. This is where many are also brought to learn to hear the heart and mind of the Father and to understand His Judgments so they can be trusted to rule in the future as Judges and Elders. Look, and notice that small counsel room there,” he pointed.
I looked and there was a saint standing along with another saint and I knew they were listening to a proceeding in the counsel chamber. “You are correct,” the guide said. “This Counsel Chamber decides if the case is serious enough to be brought before the Courts. If it is then it will be given to another area for ruling. In this case here, the person is a trainee standing by the elder, and he is learning to decide by the wisdom from heaven. When he is confident he has heard from the Father, then he shares the decision with the elder, and the elder will either approve it or not. If it is correct then it is approved and the saint is allowed to decide the case. Then it is sent to the upper courts for a further ruling. This is where every saint learns to rule and to reign. You learn here by hearing and seeking the counsels of the Lord in every matter. Just like you do on the earth.”
“The more that you seek the Lord’s wisdom and counsel in your daily situations on earth, and the more dependence you place upon His wisdom, the more you will learn to choose and rule wisely. When it is seen in heaven that you walk wisely in His counsels on earth, then you are summoned here to serve in the Court Systems of Heaven, much like you are summoned to serve in jury duty in the court systems on earth. The earth’s model of courts is patterned much like what operates in Heaven, only on a lower level of course. When there is a need for your service you are brought here to hear the case, to intercede and to render decisions accordingly. Many times you don’t even realize that you are here. Many of you will be praying in your quiet times and you will be caught up, and you think you were just interceding on earth. Its time the church plays a more active role in the Judicial Systems of Heaven in your generation. It is important on earth, and in heaven. Come,” he said.
We walked to another hallway and the guide showed me a series of chambers all in a specific wing of the building. The chambers were labeled on their doors. I read some of them as we walked, “The Counsel of Three.” “The Counsel of Five.” “The Counsel of Seven.” “The Counsel of Ten.” “The Counsel of Twelve.” “The Counsel of Twenty-Four.” The guide stopped. “That’s enough for now. Lets go into the Counsel of Three,” he said. We went back and entered the door and the room was empty. It held three seats at the front, a table and various other chairs and tables in back of the room.
“This room is for the Three. When a decision is needed to be rendered by the saints, but its importance and decision is weightier, then they are sent here to the Counsel of the Three, where they will jointly decide together. The more important and weightier the situation and case the higher the number of Counsel is needed. That is why you have the Three, the Five, the Seven, the Ten, the Twelve, and the Twenty-Four. The Father places great care and responsibility on every decision that is made in Heaven concerning the saints and the affairs of the earth. So He wisely has a chain of authority here functioning in the Halls. The serious and more urgent cases go directly into the Upper Courts themselves, but that is another building all together.”
I then asked him about the Counsel of the Five. “I don’t remember hearing about that one”, I said. His eyes twinkled. He nodded in response. “Five is the number of His Grace. Whenever a saint calls out to the Lord for His Grace on the earth in their dire situation, it is heard here. The Five will review the facts of the case, and give their judgment, and then angels are sent to the earth with the Lords instructions in answer to the saint’s prayers. Not everything is answered how the saint wishes it to be, but it will always be answered according to the Lord’s will for them. Many don’t realize that the Lord always hears their petitions and that He does answer. They want Him to answer in the way they want, not in the way it should be. The Prayer for Grace is always answered. He gives Grace to the humble. It is very important to the Lords heart. You all must learn to dispense grace and wisdom to each other more often on earth. It also needs to be very important to the churches heart on the earth.”
Then we left the hallway and began walking back to the man foyer area where we originally came from. I saw all of the other guides were bringing their visitors back too. We all met back at precisely the same time. “Heaven operates so precisely”, I thought. “Yes it does.” My guide answered. “This is where the tour ends for today. We will see you all back here again. May you each continue to walk wisely in the heart and mind of the Lord and in His Judgments.” He nodded and left us. - The vision ends with Patrick coming into the room to wake me up.
Zechariah 3:7 Thus says the Lord of hosts: If you will walk in My ways and keep My charge, then also you shall rule My house and have charge of My courts, and I will give you access [to My presence] and places to walk among these who stand here.
1 Corinthians 6:2 Do you not know that the saints (the believers) will [one day] judge and govern the world? And if the world [itself] is to be judged and ruled by you, are you unworthy and incompetent to try [such petty matters] of the smallest courts of justice? 3 Do you not know also that we [Christians] are to judge the [very] angels and pronounce opinion between right and wrong [for them]? How much more then [as to] matters pertaining to this world and of this life only!

“The Heavenly Sand Castle Experience – 01-31-17”
In the vision, I am walking the beach in heaven. I stop and sit by the shore and watch the waves of the water come in. I come here often, and love this special place of rest. I wiggle my toes in the sand and it sparkles with light. Each grain of sand on this beach is miniature crystal and every crystal shines with the light of heaven. The grains slide between my toes easily and I smile. I reach down and scoop some sand in my hands and watch as the tiny grains slide shimmering through with ease. I was so engrossed in my delight with the beach that I did not see the Lord walk up to me.
He waited till I saw him and He laughed at my surprise. He bent down and joined me where I sat before I could even respond or get up. His eyes were twinkling and he was grinning like he had a well-kept secret. I looked at him, and he said, “Lets build something.”
Quickly Jesus began to scoop up the sand like a small child would and he began to shape it into squares. I joined him and tried to scoop it up with my hands but it only ran loosely through my hands, after a few attempts. I gave up and watched him build instead. He became engrossed at what he was building and his smile changed to earnest concentration as he worked. He made many squares and then he began to stack them and I realized he was building a sand castle.
The tiny crystals that made up the sand were shining so brilliantly as he worked with them. When he stacked them and made up the walls, you could see the light shine through the sections that he made and the light danced. I was fascinated watching the spectrums of light that played with every angle of sand that was laid. The Lord left open areas for windows and he even made ledges and balconies and carved shapes into the walls with his fingers. He was a master builder!
I smiled as I thought that, because he is the Master Builder! He is the Architect of everything! The Lord then noticed that I wasn’t building along with him. I said, “the sand wont cling together for me.” He took my hands and placed them with his, and together we began to shape the sand. I could feel the sand literally respond to his touch under my hands, and the sand came together and became sections obediently. This living sand responded to him as we built. It was exhilarating to feel the flow and I understood the unity then between creation and creator.What a revelation! My heart sung and I almost shouted!
The Lord laughed at me, knowing my thoughts. He said, “Of course! Creation responds to Me, and also flows because of Me. I am the Life of all things. You feel the Harmony of Life. Everything I have ever created came forth from Me, and responds to Me, except for one.” I nodded, “Man. Except for us. We have left you and do not all respond to you.” Jesus said, “Yes. I created man with My Father, and we desire that men would know us and would respond to us as we respond to each other. So, we gave you the capability to do so, so that you could know the joy of our union and have true completion.”
“What do you see here Susan?” Jesus said. I looked and the sand castle was complete, with windows, rooms, ledges, and balconies and even pointed turrets. But it was so clear and transparent that it shone like a million crystals in the light. It was breathtaking! It stood regally and yet humbly on the beach like a gentle beacon shining for all to see who passed by. I was in awe as I stood looking at it with the Lord. The Lord sat down then and He motioned for me to join Him. He was quiet for a minute, and then He began to speak.
“This is a picture of what I am coming to do. I am coming to re-build My House. My House is built within men. It is also built as My men come together as an assembly or group, then it is a corporate house. I also can inhabit cities and even entire nations as My Houses when they are fully committed to Me. Everything that you try to build without Me will not truly cleave together. The House is held together by Me. Men try to build what they think will serve Me, but it is not Me. These shall fail because what they build is not built on Me. Its time that My House stands shining in the earth. Everything I build is an extension of Me and is also a reflection of Me. Its time to build My People and My House on earth with Me, and let Me guide you in your decisions and in your administrations. Put your hands within Mine, its building time!”
With that Jesus stood up and offered me His hand, and I stood up and was out of the vision.
Psalms 127:1 Except the Lord builds the house, they labor in vain who build it; except the Lord keeps the city, the watchman wakes but in vain.
Exodus 25:8 Let them make Me a sanctuary, that I may dwell among them. 9 And you shall make it according to all that I show you, the pattern of the tabernacle or dwelling and the pattern of all the furniture of it.
1 Corinthians 3:9 For we are fellow workmen (joint promoters, laborers together) with and for God; you are God’s garden and vineyard and field under cultivation, [you are] God’s building. 10 According to the grace (the special endowment for my task) of God bestowed on me, like a skillful architect and master builder I laid [the] foundation, and now another [man] is building upon it. But let each [man] be careful how he builds upon it,
Hebrews 11:10 For he was [waiting expectantly and confidently] looking forward to the city which has fixed and firm foundations, whose Architect and Builder is God.
Colossians 1:16 For it was in Him that all things were created, in heaven and on earth, things seen and things unseen, whether thrones, dominions, rulers, or authorities; all things were created and exist through Him [by His service, intervention] and in and for Him. 17 And He Himself existed before all things, and in Him all things consist (cohere, are held together). 18 He also is the Head of [His] body, the church; seeing He is the Beginning, the Firstborn from among the dead, so that He alone in everything and in every respect might occupy the chief place [stand first and be preeminent].
1 Peter 2:4 Come to Him [then, to that] Living Stone which men tried and threw away, but which is chosen [and] precious in God’s sight. 5 [Come] and, like living stones, be yourselves built [into] a spiritual house, for a holy (dedicated, consecrated) priesthood, to offer up [those] spiritual sacrifices [that are] acceptable and pleasing to God through Jesus Christ. 6 For thus it stands in Scripture: Behold, I am laying in Zion a chosen (honored), precious chief Cornerstone, and he who believes in Him [who adheres to, trusts in, and relies on Him] shall never be disappointed or put to shame.

“The Sword of the Lord and the Living Lightnings of His Habitation - 01-14-17”
I have held onto this vision until I felt released to share it. May it draw you closer to the Lord in this hour, as you are also believing Him to release His power. God is doing deep inspections right now to realign everything.
Scene One: The Sword of the Lord
In the vision, I was in a large auditorium and I was sitting in the front row of the room. I was preparing to speak and was praying before the meeting started. Suddenly, a very large and fierce angel came and he stood up front to my left and he held a very large sword. It was not your typical long slim bladed sword. This sword was a large fat wide bladed sword, and very heavy. It reminded me of a machete of sorts. I immediately knew what it was for, and I threw myself face down on the floor before the angel. I began to pray and I asked the angel if he had a message for us. He nodded and the angel then spoke.
He said, “I have come to bring a full separation in the Body of Christ.” Then the angel threw his sword into the air and it flew and spun around like a boomerang as it did, and it cut off the heads of many people in the auditorium. Angels stood at the edges of the room to gather the heads into baskets. Some heads began to roll and they rolled out the door of the room and were met by angels waiting for them in the foyer with baskets too. When they were all collected, fire fell from heaven into the baskets and burned all the heads up. Only ashes were left. I was shocked and dismayed as I watched the whole scene play out. I noticed that not everyone’s heads were cut off, but most were.
The angel then said, “The Sword of the Lord will cut off all Compromisers, all Criticizers, all Mockers, and all Controllers. There has begun a full separation of those in their heads from those in their spirits. If you resist and oppose the Spirit of God in this hour then you will lose your place, and another will stand where you do. Do not make the mistake of thinking you know by your head knowledge everything that God is doing, or you too will find yourself outside of His will. Those who walk in the Spirit, and hear His Voice and follow it, and will move into the fullness of what God has prepared for all of you.”
“This Separation is to bring Clarification, which will release Purification, to establish the Preparation for the building of His Habitations all over your land to now rise forth. Without the removal of all that defiles, resists, and opposes His Purposes, the Habitations will never fully come forth. The Father has released His Purifying Sword from the North. You must follow His Voice, and obey His Commands, and then you will surely fully rise up and steadfastly stand! It has already begun, the Father has heard the humble’s cry, and the nations shall see His Sword fly swiftly by!”
Scene Two: The Living Lightnings of His Habitations
I saw Gods’ people that had been separated by the Sword of the Lord standing together. I saw power begin to light up from within each person, like blue light. It came from within their beings, and they were full of power, and the light flowed up them till it began to arc on top of their heads. Sparks began to fly as they stood. I watched as they began to spark one another and arc back and forth from each other. I could hear the sound of power as it flowed from one person to another and even as I watched in the vision, my own spirit man began to spark and arc too!
Then the vision panned out and I suddenly realized as I looked at the whole Body of Christ that had been separated by the Lord, that I was seeing a living power plant in operation for the first time. It was like it just was turned on, and the whole power plant was adjusting to the current that was being released through each conductor. Soon, it was arcing and flowing perfectly and the blue light of power flowed through each person, and they were all living lightnings. The Habitation of the Lord was born. The house of Living Stones was full of God’s Glory, and the Glory flowed in it flawlessly as the Spirit willed it to. As I watched in awe, the scripture came to my mind:
Ephesians 4:15 Rather, let our lives lovingly express truth [in all things, speaking truly, dealing truly, living truly]. Enfolded in love, let us grow up in every way and in all things into Him Who is the Head, [even] Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One). 16 For because of Him the whole body (the church, in all its various parts), closely joined and firmly knit together by the joints and ligaments with which it is supplied, when each part [with power adapted to its need] is working properly [in all its functions], grows to full maturity, building itself up in love.
The Lord is going to rebuild His House, and the Nations His way!

The Womb of the Morning Vision - 01-19-17
In the vision, I am standing next to a fellow brother in Christ, and we are outside standing in the open field looking out at the landscape before us in the pre dawn light. The air is crisp and the grass is heavy with dew, and there is a deep hush everywhere. Then I see the sun begin to rise, and the first rays begin to climb into the sky. We both watch as the light breaks forth and the sun rises above the horizon.
The sun was a color mix of oranges and yellow. It lights up the landscape and everything shines with its light as it reflects itself in the dew. I smile at the early morning sight, but I feel a check from the Holy Spirit within me to wait, so I keep watching. Suddenly, I saw a strange sight. I saw the sun continue to rise and then it split open partway, like a hinge on the top let go and the top part fell open in two parts until it was laying open flat. Kind of like an egg would that was being opened.
Then, I saw a new sun slowly emerge out of the opened halves, and it was absolutely golden, and was so brilliant that you could hardly look at it, and it transformed everything around us with its golden shimmering light. Everything sparkled anew with golden radiance! I looked at my friend, who was standing next to me, and we both smiled and I said, “It’s the Womb of the Morning, and it has finally dawned!”
Then the scriptures came to me:
Psalms 110:3 Your people will offer themselves willingly in the day of Your power, in the beauty of holiness and in holy array out of the womb of the morning; to You [will spring forth] Your young men, who are as the dew.
2 Peter 1:19 And we have the prophetic word [made] firmer still. You will do well to pay close attention to it as to a lamp shining in a dismal (squalid and dark) place, until the day breaks through [the gloom] and the Morning Star rises (comes into being) in your hearts.

“The Greater Shaking and the Glorious Lampstands Vision – 01-17-17”
As Patrick and I were sitting in our living room talking today, I saw a vision. I saw the Lord Jesus standing in the midst of the 7 golden candlesticks. He was dressed in white robes with a royal sash and a woven belt. On the belt was hanging a pocket watch. He held a scroll in His hand, and He looked at the scroll as He opened it up. Then He looked down and picked up the pocket watch that hung on His belt and He looked at it and smiled. He then looked at me as I watched and I saw the whole room that He was standing in shake. It looked like an earthquake. The 7 lamps shook, and their flames danced as they shook. The Lord was not moved by the shaking, but continued to stand their unfazed. I watched as the shaking increased. The lamps continued to burn but their flames shook more and soon the flames leaped violently as the shaking increased. At one point I wondered if their flames would go out because the shaking was so violent that I thought the lampstands would fall. The Lord continued to stand among them and His face was resolute. Then I saw an amazing thing happen as the shaking came to a crescendo, the flames began to change on the lamps. The flames changed into huge balls of atomic light, kind of like the transition from a single flame to a lighthouse light would be. The lamps had transformed because of the shaking, and great light now blazed brightly everywhere. Then I saw Jesus smile, and He held out the scroll to me. Then the vision ended.
Revelation 1:10 I was in the Spirit [rapt in His power] on the Lord’s Day, and I heard behind me a great voice like the calling of a war trumpet, 11 Saying, I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last. Write promptly what you see (your vision) in a book and send it to the seven churches which are in Asia—to Ephesus and to Smyrna and to Pergamum and to Thyatira and to Sardis and to Philadelphia and to Laodicea. 12 Then I turned to see [whose was] the voice that was speaking to me, and on turning I saw seven golden lampstands, 13 And in the midst of the lampstands [One] like a Son of Man, clothed with a robe which reached to His feet and with a girdle of gold about His breast. 14 His head and His hair were white like white wool, [as white] as snow, and His eyes [flashed] like a flame of fire. 15 His feet glowed like burnished (bright) bronze as it is refined in a furnace, and His voice was like the sound of many waters. 16 In His right hand He held seven stars, and from His mouth there came forth a sharp two-edged sword, and His face was like the sun shining in full power at midday. 17 When I saw Him, I fell at His feet as if dead. But He laid His right hand on me and said, Do not be afraid! I am the First and the Last, 18 And the Ever-living One [I am living in the eternity of the eternities]. I died, but see, I am alive forevermore; and I possess the keys of death and Hades (the realm of the dead). 19 Write therefore the things you see, what they are [and signify] and what is to take place hereafter. 20 As to the hidden meaning (the mystery) of the seven stars which you saw on My right hand and the seven lampstands of gold: the seven stars are the seven angels (messengers) of the seven assemblies (churches) and the seven lampstands are the seven churches.
Revelation 2:1 To the angel (messenger) of the assembly (church) in Ephesus write: These are the words of Him Who holds the seven stars [which are the messengers of the seven churches] in His right hand, Who goes about among the seven golden lampstands [which are the seven churches]: 2 I know your industry and activities, laborious toil and trouble, and your patient endurance, and how you cannot tolerate wicked [men] and have tested and critically appraised those who call [themselves] apostles (special messengers of Christ) and yet are not, and have found them to be impostors and liars. 3 I know you are enduring patiently and are bearing up for My name’s sake, and you have not fainted or become exhausted or grown weary. 4 But I have this [one charge to make] against you: that you have left (abandoned) the love that you had at first [you have deserted Me, your first love]. 5 Remember then from what heights you have fallen. Repent (change the inner man to meet God’s will) and do the works you did previously [when first you knew the Lord], or else I will visit you and remove your lampstand from its place, unless you change your mind and repent. 6 Yet you have this [in your favor and to your credit]: you hate the works of the Nicolaitans [what they are doing as corrupters of the people], which I Myself also detest. 7 He who is able to hear, let him listen to and give heed to what the Spirit says to the assemblies (churches). To him who overcomes (is victorious), I will grant to eat [of the fruit] of the tree of life, which is in the paradise of God.
The transition period that we have crossed into now is going to purge and strengthen the people who Jesus is walking among. His Body will not be broken, or be lost, but she will stand by Him while everything that can be shaken is shaken and the world and the chaff is finally removed. The greater the shaking- the greater the Glory that will be revealed. The Glory comes and we are all going to be changed and enlarged by it. The enlargement will flow as we trust in Him who leads us all to obey His commands. It is by His Hand the deeper shakings will now come. It is His intention to use the turbulence of the years ahead of us, to transform the church into the greatest of all lights upon the earth. Such Grace and such Glory has not yet been seen, but is soon to be revealed! It is time to hear what the Spirit is saying to the churches, and to draw near to your first love, and to allow the turbulence of great change to remove everything that hinders His light. Great Shaking and Great Awakening and Great Glory are at hand! Its time for the Light Houses of the Church to brightly stand across every land!
John 17:17 Sanctify them [purify, consecrate, separate them for Yourself, make them holy] by the Truth; Your Word is Truth.

“Write The Vision, Make It Plain, That The People May Run With It!”
Facebook Live Video of the meeting:
As I was sleeping tonight, I had a very powerful encounter with the Lord. A powerful scene was playing out in my dream that became so powerful it literally had every part of me engaged with it, until it literally woke me up from it!
In the dream, I was writing a song. I was making a video of a ballad about America. I was filming scenes of normal everyday American people waking up and singing to her nation. As they sang, they each began to stand one by one, and their voices grew louder and louder, until the whole land was singing to her land.
Their words grew so power and deep that my entire being was singing it too, and the words poured through my being with such love that my own heart sang in the dream! The people had begun to sing a new national anthem to her. I knew it was the “People’s Anthem!”
Across the land, people began to rise up everywhere and take a stand, and they joined hands to hands, and their voices rung loud, true and clear. I then realized that I saw faith in our nation being born, and a new beginning was taking root again, far and near! A new anthem had begun to sound all around! It was so powerful that life began to flow through everyone in our nation within the vision.
All of a sudden a great wind blew and I awoke with a start! Because a wind gust hit our apartment building and shook the windows, and a light flashed outside my window through the curtains! I realized then that high winds truly were in the natural blowing down the street in Rochester, as we are also under weather alerts for high winds this morning. The timing of God is so impeccable! I lay in the bed for a minute listening, waiting for the Lord to see if any more came, and then the Spirit said to get up.
The White Horse Is Running!
So I start walking down the hallway to the kitchen and I see the vision of the White Horse running fiercely at full speed! He was fully on the move! His muscles were pounding swiftly, and his face was bent with the winds, and he was fierce to behold! It made my whole being shake watching him running furiously past me!
Then the Holy Spirit said:
“Write! Write the Vision! Make it plain! It’s time the people awaken and run with it! Now is the time! Let faith arise! Let your hearts take courage! Now is your hour! Your scroll is opening! It’s time to take a stand! Your destiny is at hand! Awaken! God is shaking you with His Hand! Understand! Your Great Awakening has begun! Its time for your nation’s vision to expand! Run with the vision for your land! It was given to you from God’s hand! Your time is at hand!”
The vision was so powerful that I am still trembling as I write this encounter out this morning! Something new has begun in the Spirit today on 1-11……. God is fully on the move, and nothing can prevent our scrolls from coming to pass- but us. It’s time to believe again! It’s time to decide in whom we are going to believe in and run! Its time to arise with God’s destiny burning in our hearts and eyes!
Habakkuk 2:1 [Oh, I know, I have been rash to talk out plainly this way to God!] I will [in my thinking] stand upon my post of observation and station myself on the tower or fortress, and will watch to see what He will say within me and what answer I will make [as His mouthpiece] to the perplexities of my complaint against Him. 2 And the Lord answered me and said, Write the vision and engrave it so plainly upon tablets that everyone who passes may [be able to] read [it easily and quickly] as he hastens by. 3 For the vision is yet for an appointed time and it hastens to the end [fulfillment]; it will not deceive or disappoint. Though it tarry, wait [earnestly] for it, because it will surely come; it will not be behindhand on its appointed day.
Luke 24:31 When their eyes were [instantly] opened and they [clearly] recognized Him, and He vanished (departed invisibly). 32 And they said to one another, Were not our hearts greatly moved and burning within us while He was talking with us on the road and as He opened and explained to us [the sense of] the Scriptures?

“The Mantle of Humility and the Battle for the Habitations” - Podcast
The podcast link can be found at:
The Lord started speaking to me alot the past few days out of John Chapter 5.
My core text for tonight's message:
John 5:19 So Jesus answered them by saying, I assure you, most solemnly I tell you, the Son is able to do nothing of Himself (of His own accord); but He is able to do only what He sees the Father doing, for whatever the Father does is what the Son does in the same way [in His turn]. 20 The Father dearly loves the Son and discloses to (shows) Him everything that He Himself does. And He will disclose to Him (let Him see) greater things yet than these, so that you may marvel and be full of wonder and astonishment. 30 I am able to do nothing from Myself [independently, of My own accord—but only as I am taught by God and as I get His orders]. Even as I hear, I judge [I decide as I am bidden to decide. As the voice comes to Me, so I give a decision], and My judgment is right (just, righteous), because I do not seek or consult My own will [I have no desire to do what is pleasing to Myself, My own aim, My own purpose] but only the will and pleasure of the Father Who sent Me.
Then I had two visions:
In the vision today on 01-08-17, the Lord and I were standing in heaven and we were looking at scenes being played of the earth. I saw scenes of disquiet, turmoil, and there was an uneasy brooding everywhere I looked. I saw the ground heaving up and down in great swells in areas. I looked closer where the uplift was happening and I saw the movement was due to the root structures underground that were being disturbed and dislodged by the church. I knew the enemy was not happy about his plans and systems being disrupted and dislodged in these areas and he was regrouping for a massive retaliation.
I looked to the Lord as if to inquire what we must do, and the Lord shook his head and said, “You can only win this battle that is coming with this.” He reached out his hand and he held out a plain garment. “This is the Mantle of Humility. This is the only weapon the enemy cannot see. If you try to defeat the plans of the enemy in your own pride, talents, gifts, or strength, then you will also become captive to his system. There is greater authority in humility than in giftings, weapons, and even anointings. It is time the church learns the power of true humility.”
“You cannot see all of the operations of the enemy without this. Put this on.” I reach out and take the garment and put it over my robe. It was soft and warm and felt like it was made for me. Jesus smiled at my thought. “Yes, it was made for you. You are all called to walk in Me. Walking in My Humility is one of My Attributes and My Purposes that you must cultivate and mature into in your walks. You cannot see clearly without it. Now look at the ground that was swelling again.”
I turned to see where the ground was moving, and I could see warfare under the ground. Light and darkness was raging under the ground as saints and devils were battling in the root structures that held the ground fast. It looked like lava and lightning swirling and striking as they fought. But I noticed that as soon as some roots were loosened and becoming dislodged, the person doing the battling began to let up and moved to another area doing the same as they went. This did not fully eradicate the problem but it actually strengthened the root system to tighten its grip after the person left the area. The whole ground was regrouping.
I looked, and I thought, “We haven’t done much have we? Are we making any progress at all Lord? Isn’t there a better way?” He turned towards me and said, “Yes! Its time to ask that question of Me! I have a better way! What you see here is the level of surface warfare that your generation is used to fighting, they get a few results and they think they have won and they move on thinking everything is okay, but they do not realize they have not completely rooted out anything, but only made things harder. Its time to recognize that you need to humble yourselves and ask for My Wisdom, for I know where every enemy lies and I know when and where he will shortly strike. It’s not too late. That’s why you are here. Its time to shift gears.”
“It is important to walk closely by My side in this hour. Many shall foolishly rise up in their thinking and run into battle not fully equipped, not knowing they shall fall. You are no match without My robes on. There are different garments for different battles. In some battles you wear armor. In some battles you wear only mail. In some battles you wear camouflage to sneak in among the enemy. In some battles you are clothed with My Zeal, or My Joy, or My Holiness. But in this battle ahead that you all will face as a nation, it is My Robes of Humility that will save you. You must see what I see, so you must put them on quickly. You must hear what I hear, for the enemy wants to bring more confusion and fear. You must yield fully over to Me. You must act when I act, and not until I act. You must only move in My authority and move in tandem with Me. This is why you have had to fight these past three months. I was preparing you for what’s ahead.”
“The turbulence has begun as I have showed you. This shall increase as you all ascend. But you must guard your hearts and minds, and you do it by wearing My robe. When you humble yourself in Me then I shield your hearts and minds from the onslaught of the enemy. He does not want My church to see, or to see what she is destined to be. So he will use this turbulent times ahead to fill your hearts and minds with fear, stress, and dread to keep you defeated instead. You must keep your eyes upon Me and walk humbly with Me and with each other, for in this place is hidden the greatest of all power. As I humbled Myself before My Father, even so, I also triumphed over every enemy. You also will not only root out every evil work of the enemy that has been laid, but you all will also establish a new foundation for your nation to be built upon. Come, there is much work to do ahead of all of you.”
The Lord then led me to an interesting set of scriptures:
Zephaniah 2:2 [The time for repentance is speeding by like chaff whirled before the wind!] Therefore consider, before God’s decree brings forth [the curse upon you], before the time [to repent] is gone like the drifting chaff, before the fierce anger of the Lord comes upon you—yes, before the day of the wrath of the Lord comes upon you! 3 Seek the Lord [inquire for Him, inquire of Him, and require Him as the foremost necessity of your life], all you humble of the land who have acted in compliance with His revealed will and have kept His commandments; seek righteousness, seek humility [inquire for them, require them as vital]. It may be you will be hidden in the day of the Lord’s anger. 4 For [hear the fate of the Philistines:] Gaza shall be forsaken and Ashkelon shall become a desolation; the people of Ashdod shall be driven out at noonday and Ekron shall be uprooted.
(Note: You can read the whole of Chapter two to get the full view.)
1 Peter 5:4 And [then] when the Chief Shepherd is revealed, you will win the conqueror’s crown of glory. 5 Likewise, you who are younger and of lesser rank, be subject to the elders (the ministers and spiritual guides of the church)—[giving them due respect and yielding to their counsel]. Clothe (apron) yourselves, all of you, with humility [as the garb of a servant, so that its covering cannot possibly be stripped from you, with freedom from pride and arrogance] toward one another. For God sets Himself against the proud (the insolent, the overbearing, the disdainful, the presumptuous, the boastful)—[and He opposes, frustrates, and defeats them], but gives grace (favor, blessing) to the humble. 6 Therefore humble yourselves [demote, lower yourselves in your own estimation] under the mighty hand of God, that in due time He may exalt you,
I was in my apartment or a house, not quite sure, but I knew it was mine. The bathroom was being severely flooded because a pipe had burst outside in the street, and the water pressure that was flowing into the house was too great and it looked like a geyser erupted in the pipe works of the bathroom. I called frantically for someone to call the city to turn the water pressure off. I knew that we would have to move out because so much water was coming out that it would flood us in minutes destroying everything. I started yelling to people to get their belongings out.
The Pipes represent the church structure that currently handles the flow of water or “truth” in a city. The quality of the pipes determines the quality of the flow. Pipes are interconnected through relationships, or networking within the Body of Christ.
The release of the Glory that is coming is going to break through the weaknesses within our relationships and alliances and networks. It will also expose our faults and weaknesses so they can be repaired, or replace sections not properly aligned. But either way, the Glory is going to be stronger than what we have all prepared for. Which is a God thing, because this is for our growth and maturity. It is going to rebuild, strengthen, and revolutionize the whole structure of the Body of Christ into a brand new glorious workmanship, flowing in harmony with His Will and His Ways.
