“The Holy Oil and the Fire Hoses from Heaven Vision – 03-18-17”
I was praying about a message for our meeting on Sunday morning in Brockport. I then went into a vision and saw the entire Rochester region spread out before me. I saw sparks of fire sparking in places, and a few small flames here and there. As I watched, I saw these massive long silver poles come down from heaven and they set down over the region where the sparks and the small flames were. As I watched, I then saw many angels descend and they slid down the poles much like a fireman would on the way to a fire. The angels then raised their hands and a long hose like extension came down from heaven, and the angels grabbed them and ran to where the sparks were sparking, and to where the small flames were burning, and they pointed their hoses to the fires. I thought they were going to put them out. I became alarmed, and said, “Lord, are you going to put out the very fires that you are birthing here?” The Lord then said, “Just watch Sue.”
I watched as the angels signaled to heaven and they turned and smiled at me. Some of the angels winked at me, knowing my words that they all heard. Then their hoses began to fill up and the angels pointed them to the areas, and suddenly a great blast of golden oil poured forth from their hoses, and the areas with sparks burst into flames, and the areas of small flames burst into raging fires. I then understood that the Lord was going to now fuel what had been birthed in the region. Then the Lord said, “Sue, I am not going to just fuel it or fan it, but I am going to greatly expand it! I am going to burn up all opposition in your midst until all of your lives are burning steadily higher! Get ready! Get ready for intense fire! I want Holy Furnaces burning brightly for me in this region. My Holy Oil is going to bring everything in your region to a full boil. My Holy Fires will become Firestorms of My Glory and I will flow out mightily, even into your entire nation! I am going to have a full and complete salvation and My Firestorms will gather in My Harvest Spoil!”
HEBREWS 12:22 But rather, you have come to Mount Zion, even to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to countless multitudes of angels in festal gathering, 23 And to the church (assembly) of the Firstborn who are registered [as citizens] in heaven, and to the God Who is Judge of all, and to the spirits of the righteous (the redeemed in heaven) who have been made perfect, 24 And to Jesus, the Mediator (Go-between, Agent) of a new covenant, and to the sprinkled blood which speaks [of mercy], a better and nobler and more gracious message than the blood of Abel [which cried out for vengeance]. 25 So see to it that you do not reject Him or refuse to listen to and heed Him Who is speaking [to you now]. For if they [the Israelites] did not escape when they refused to listen and heed Him Who warned and divinely instructed them [here] on earth [revealing with heavenly warnings His will], how much less shall we escape if we reject and turn our backs on Him Who cautions and admonishes [us] from heaven? 26 Then [at Mount Sinai] His voice shook the earth, but now He has given a promise: Yet once more I will shake and make tremble not only the earth but also the [starry] heavens. 27 Now this expression, Yet once more, indicates the final removal and transformation of all [that can be] shaken—that is, of that which has been created—in order that what cannot be shaken may remain and continue. 28 Let us therefore, receiving a kingdom that is firm and stable and cannot be shaken, offer to God pleasing service and acceptable worship, with modesty and pious care and godly fear and awe; 29 For our God [is indeed] a consuming fire.
The Oil of His Presence
Psalms 23:5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my [brimming] cup runs over.
Song of Solomon 8:5 Who is this who comes up from the wilderness leaning upon her beloved? [And as they sighted the home of her childhood, the bride said] Under the apple tree I awakened you; there your mother gave you birth, there she was in travail and bore you. 6 Set me like a seal upon your heart, like a seal upon your arm; for love is as strong as death, jealousy is as hard and cruel as Sheol (the place of the dead). Its flashes are flashes of fire, a most vehement flame [the very flame of the Lord]! 7 Many waters cannot quench love, neither can floods drown it.
Psalms 89:19 Once You spoke in a vision to Your devoted ones and said, I have endowed one who is mighty [a hero, giving him the power to help—to be a champion for Israel]; I have exalted one chosen from among the people. 20 I have found David My servant; with My holy oil have I anointed him, 21 With whom My hand shall be established and ever abide; My arm also shall strengthen him.

“The Mountain, the Ranger Station, and the Firestorm of the Shekinah Glory”
In the vision, I am standing upon a mountain with binoculars, and everywhere I look it is full of baby trees about knee high. It had been recently planted and all the small trees still had their little tags on them. They were all gently blowing in the wind and then I turned to look in another area and I saw a Ranger Station built very high up in the air with a ladder that you had to climb up to get to the top lookout and the wrap around deck. Suddenly a man approached me and said, “What do we need a lookout tower for? We don’t get any fires or storms here. Look at how small these trees are. We can see everything for ourselves. This is a waste of resources and also of our time. Nothing ever happens here.” I put down my binoculars to see who it was that had spoke, and there was no one there. So I thought that I would go and see if anyone was in the Ranger Station.
The scene changed. I am walking to the Ranger Station with my binoculars around my neck, and a backpack on my back. The trees are now 10-12 feet tall. It is a beautiful day, and I am enjoying walking through the trees along the trail that had been made for those who came to the Ranger Station. The wind was blowing through the trees and the sound of their branches rustling was curiously invigorating. As I walked a man was coming down from the Ranger Station as I approached and he said, “Why did we have to build these trails and put up these signs? No one but the workers ever come here, and nothing ever happens here, so why do we need workers? We are tired of wasting our resources on things that don’t produce what benefits us. This is our land on this mountain and I can think of better things to do with it. It’s time for change, I am going to the towns board and speak my mind!” I watched the man’s face get redder and redder as he angrily vented his feelings. He then ran further down the trail and disappeared out of my view.
The scene changed. I am approaching the Ranger Station through the trees, and I see it’s tall form high in the air above the towering trees. The trees had to be 50-60 feet high now. As I approach, I see a man standing on the upper deck with binoculars on and I wave to him. He sees me coming and also waves. I arrive and reach up to the ladder and climb the many rungs to the very top where the deck and tower are. I am breathless as I climb higher and higher. When I get to the top, I step onto the deck and I see the man approach smiling at my entrance. I said, “Hi Charlie! How is everything today?” He smiles, and says, “Hi Sue, there’s a new wind in the air. Things are finally brewing. The storm is going to be a doozy, it’s the Winds of Change!” With that, we both put our binoculars on and stand looking out over the decking.
The scene changes again. Charlie says, “Go down and lock the base entrance to the ladder. We don’t want anyone climbing up here that is not a trained worker when the storms come.” So I went back down the ladder and locked the gate to the entrance of the ladder and I climbed back up again. As I got to the top, Charlie said, “Look Sue! The Upper Dimensions have opened and the Higher Realms are now entering our atmosphere. See that formation?” I looked to where he was pointing, and I could see what looked to me like Jet Streams of Fire, Wind, and Lightning all flowing together in one stream down from the upper atmosphere downwards towards the mountain. The trees then began to shake and the mountain itself began to quake, and we both began to run all around the top decking. Then I saw the whole Stream hit the trees itself. Lightning began to strike the trees on the mountain and all of the tall trees began to catch on fire and the winds swirled around them violently. The lightning flashed everywhere and it even hit the ranger station where we stood, but we were not harmed! I then realized nor were any of the trees harmed, but it was a living fire, that was within a living wind, that was being quickened by the living lightnings of God!
The Scene changed again. We are standing there watching the whole scene play out again. It replayed twice in the vision, and I realized in awe that it was the entrance of the Holy Presence of the Living God! We were both standing on the mountain of God watching the Winds of Change uproot and transform everything as it blew violently. I then saw an amazing thing; I then saw that Shekinah Glory was hidden within the folds of the Winds of Change. The Winds of Change held within it a second wind- the Shekinah Glory- but only those who were the workers would understand the initial dual works that had begun, as we could see its hidden works high up on the Ranger Station. Everything on the mountain was vibrating and arcing wildly with the life of the living lightnings of the Lord’s power! We both watched as it then swept violently down the Mountain, engulfing everything in its path below. I knew we had to go down and instruct the townspeople below on what to do. So we began to descend down the ladder to the ground below.
The vision ended.
Mark 4:26 And He said, The kingdom of God is like a man who scatters seed upon the ground, 27 And then continues sleeping and rising night and day while the seed sprouts and grows and increases — he knows not how. 28 The earth produces [acting] by itself—first the blade, then the ear, then the full grain in the ear. 29 But when the grain is ripe and permits, immediately he sends forth [the reapers] and puts in the sickle, because the harvest stands ready.
Ephesians 1:9 Making known to us the mystery (secret) of His will (of His plan, of His purpose). [And it is this:] In accordance with His good pleasure (His merciful intention) which He had previously purposed and set forth in Him, 10 [He planned] for the maturity of the times and the climax of the ages to unify all things and head them up and consummate them in Christ, [both] things in heaven and things on the earth. 11 In Him we also were made [God’s] heritage (portion) and we obtained an inheritance; for we had been foreordained (chosen and appointed beforehand) in accordance with His purpose, Who works out everything in agreement with the counsel and design of His [own] will,

“Marching forth in the Trade Winds of the Spirit – 03-01-17”
The Trade Winds
1. Trade Winds: any of the nearly constant easterly winds that dominate most of the tropics and subtropics throughout the world, blowing mainly from the northeast in the Northern Hemisphere, and from the southeast in the Southern Hemisphere.
C17: from to blow trade to blow steadily in one direction, from trade in the obsolete sense: a track
The Winds of Opposition:
The winds of opposition have been steadily opposing the purposes of God for this generation, and have been specifically arrayed against the church to stop her from maturing and from advancing.
The works of the Winds of Opposition:
Financial hardships, Misunderstandings, Offences, Separation, Sickness, Oppression, Depression, Division, Strife, Isolations, False prophecy and false counsel, and Spiritual Setbacks.
False prophecy and soulish counsels inspired by the demonic winds have targeted the saints to bring their growth and maturity to a standstill.
The Winds of Change and the Trade Winds:
On March 1st, the Winds of Change brought a new direction in the earth. The angelic forces poured into the earth on March 1st, to bring Winds of Refreshing, new Strength, fresh Revelation, and needed Counsel to bring forth new strategies for regional and national advancements.
One of the hindrances that is being addressed right now is the lack of hearing in the Body of Christ. Specifically in hearing what the Spirit is saying to the churches, and in hearing what Heaven is doing all around them.
In order to advance, we must hear and understand what the Spirit is saying, and take the necessary steps to act on His instructions. Its time to take leaps of faith, and to run with new vision!
We must also understand what heaven is doing around and among us, and position ourselves to cooperate with them. We cannot move forward without angelic and heavenly assistance. They will not move until we move out on Gods Word in faith. There is a fresh activation on faith right now, to bring forth new Counsel and Advancement Strategies.
Lets look at an example of when the angelic help comes in the winds to help us in the earth:
2 Samuel 5:17 When the Philistines heard that David had been anointed king over Israel, they all went up to find [him], but [he] heard of it and went down to the stronghold. 18 The Philistines also came and spread themselves in the Valley of Rephaim. 19 David inquired of the Lord, saying, Shall I go up against the Philistines? Will You deliver them into my hand? And the Lord said to David, Go up, for I will surely deliver [them] into your hand. 20 And David came to Baal-perazim, and he smote them there, and said, The Lord has broken through my enemies before me, like the bursting out of great waters. So he called the name of that place Baal-perazim [Lord of breaking through]. 21 There the Philistines left their [a]images, and David and his men took them away. 22 The Philistines came up again and spread themselves out in the Valley of Rephaim. 23 When David inquired of the Lord, He said, You shall not go up, but go around behind them and come upon them over opposite the mulberry (or balsam) trees. 24 And when you hear the sound of marching in the tops of the mulberry trees, then bestir yourselves, for then has the Lord gone out before you to smite the army of the Philistines. 25 And David did as the Lord had commanded him, and smote the Philistines from Geba to Gezer.
Fresh strategy and insights will help to position us right for the greater fight.
On March 5th, I saw a great massive angel descend and he had great wings that spanned the entire width of our region. He hovered over the area and he began to flap his wings, and he was stirring up the Winds of the Spirit to blow anew on regions.
The enemy has been trading illegally on regions, and has been blowing demonic fogs over entire areas to block the light of God from spreading. The fog would encompass the saints in the region bringing all kinds of troubles, sickness, and hardships to wear them down, and to keep them from advancing into their purposes.
The Lord has sent the angelic forces that are assigned to the Trade Winds of Heaven, and these angels remove the blockages that the demonic has erected. The Trade Winds from Heaven bring forth fresh life and vision and breath to the saints who have been crying out from the stress of the past season.
Isaiah 57:13 When you cry out, let your [rabble] collection of idols deliver you! But the wind shall take them all, a breath shall carry them away. But he who takes refuge in Me shall possess the land [Judea] and shall inherit My holy mountain [Zion, also the heavenly inheritance and the spiritual Zion]. 14 And the word of One shall go forth, Cast up, cast up, prepare the way! Take up the stumbling block out of the way [of the spiritual return] of My people. 15 For thus says the high and lofty One—He Who inhabits eternity, Whose name is Holy: I dwell in the high and holy place, but with him also who is of a thoroughly penitent and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble and to revive the heart of the thoroughly penitent [bruised with sorrow for sin].
The key is to recognize what the Lord is doing in the Spirit, and to rise up in faith, and receive the breath from Heaven. This is an hour to stand in His Counsels and to inquire as to what we must do to counteract what the enemy has done to see the fullness of what the Father has set in motion to be fully accomplished. Without the strategies released to us right now, we will not be doing the right thing to defeat the demonic fog and forces arrayed against us. Its time to rout them fully out!
Isaiah 42:5 Thus says God the Lord—He Who created the heavens and stretched them forth, He Who spread abroad the earth and that which comes out of it, He Who gives breath to the people on it and spirit to those who walk in it: 6 I the Lord have called You [the Messiah] for a righteous purpose and in righteousness; I will take You by the hand and will keep You; I will give You for a covenant to the people [Israel], for a light to the nations [Gentiles], 7 To open the eyes of the blind, to bring out prisoners from the dungeon, and those who sit in darkness from the prison. 8 I am the Lord; that is My name! And My glory I will not give to another, nor My praise to graven images. 9 Behold, the former things have come to pass, and new things I now declare; before they spring forth I tell you of them.
A great cleansing has begun. The Trade Winds of the Spirit will remove all that the enemy has sown. Whether it is in the minds and hearts and lives of His people, or in the regions of the earth. Hearts and motives will be laid bare by the winds of the angels wings. The season of trading on the Kingdom for personal gain has come to an end. Nothing will hinder the coming harvest birth!
Isaiah 60:6 “A multitude of camels [from the eastern trading tribes] will cover you [Jerusalem], The young camels of Midian and Ephah; All those from Sheba [who once came to trade] will come Bringing gold and frankincense And proclaiming the praises of the Lord. 7 “All the flocks of Kedar will be gathered to you [as the eastern pastoral tribes join the trading tribes], The rams of Nebaioth will serve you; They will go up with acceptance [as sacrifices] on My altar, And I will glorify the house of My honor and splendor.
Fresh Vision shall be restored as we gather into the emerging Counsels of the Lord
Its time to recognize that we cannot accomplish anything without heeding the instructions of the Lord to us. The exposure and removal of all false counsel and soulish purposes have begun. The Father is establishing His Holy Counsels in regions and nations right now to give clarity and insights to the Body of Christ so they can rise up into their various places and function as the Body of Christ.
Jeremiah 23:18 “But who [among them] has stood in the council of the Lord, That he would perceive and hear His word? Who has marked His word [noticing and observing and paying attention to it] and has [actually] heard it? 19 “Behold, the tempest of the Lord has gone forth in wrath, A whirling tempest; It will whirl and burst on the heads of the wicked. “The anger of the Lord will not turn back Until He has set in motion and accomplished the thoughts and intentions of His heart; In the last days you will clearly understand it. 21 “I did not send [these counterfeit] prophets, Yet they ran; I did not speak to them, Yet they prophesied. 22 “But if they had stood in My council, Then they would have caused My people to hear My words, Then they would have turned My people from their evil way And from the evil of their decisions and deeds.
Psalms 33:11 The counsel of the Lord stands forever, The thoughts and plans of His heart through all generations.
It’s time to hear the Sound of the Winds of Change, and move with the angelic hosts in the precise steps of the Lord, to see entire regions and nations explode with Gods Glory and Purposes!

“The Door of His Life Encounter – 02-24-17”
I am standing with the Lord in front of a thick foliage covered door. It had deep etched panels in it, but it was so thickly covered by vines that you would hardly notice it if you were not looking for it. I wondered why it was so thickly covered. The Lord said, “This is the Door to My Life, and few find it, even in your day.” I said, “Lord, why do we not find your doors? Why aren’t we able to step into the fullness of your life?”
Jesus said, “Many will not enter into My Life that is available to them, because they do not want to exchange their lives for Mine. Many want Me on their terms, but they do not want Me fully on Mine. I am the Life given for all men, but not all men want to pay the price to walk in Mine. This is why most do not walk in the fullness of what I have provided for them and have planned for them. Its time this changes in your day. I want My People to live in My Life now. Come, let’s go in.”
Jesus turned and opened the heavy door, and we went into the most brilliantly lit realm that I have ever been in. I could not see at first and had to wait for my eyes to adjust. Soon I could see green rolling hills, lush trees, flowers of every kind and fragrance, tall waterfalls, and many birds. I was amazed at these tiny colorful birds that immediately came over to Jesus and began to dart all around Him singing happily. Jesus laughed and said, “Hold out your hands.” I held out my hands and the little birds flew over to me and sat in my hands. I asked, “What kind of birds are these?” Jesus said, “These are love birds.”
“Love birds,” I asked. “Yes,” Jesus said. “You cannot walk in My Life without also walking in My Love. I am Life and I am Love. Life and Love flow together. You cannot love someone without also imparting life. You cannot impart My life to others without truly loving them with My Love. Everything here operates from My Love and from My Life. That is what I want you to do on the earth. It’s time for My Life and My Love to flow in the earth. This reality here is also to be your reality on the earth as you walk with Me. You are now learning to love on the earth, but its time to learn to walk in the fullness of My Life.”
“The world is looking for My Reality. They will see Me within you even more when you release My Life wherever you go. I want you to live your life fully in Me. I want My Life lived fully within you. When you live your life within Me, then I will flow freely in all that you do and are. When My Love and My Life are seen functioning in the earth, the nations will come to inquire of Me. It’s time to come up higher and trade your life in for Mine. It is time that the desire of the nations comes unto Me, so that I can lift them higher into My Desire. I am going to ignite your generation’s heart with My Love’s fire. ”
Matthew 7:13 Enter through the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and spacious and broad is the way that leads away to destruction, and many are those who are entering through it. 14 But the gate is narrow (contracted by pressure) and the way is straitened and compressed that leads away to life, and few are those who find it.
John 10:10 The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance (to the full, till it overflows).
Psalms 16:11 You will show me the path of life; in Your presence is fullness of joy, at Your right hand there are pleasures forevermore.
1 Thessalonians 4:1 Furthermore, brethren, we beg and admonish you in [virtue of our union with] the Lord Jesus, that [you follow the instructions which] you learned from us about how you ought to walk so as to please and gratify God, as indeed you are doing, [and] that you do so even more and more abundantly [attaining yet greater perfection in living this life].
Colossians 2:10 And you are in Him, made full and having come to fullness of life [in Christ you too are filled with the Godhead—Father, Son and Holy Spirit—and reach full spiritual stature]. And He is the Head of all rule and authority [of every angelic principality and power].
Ephesians 2:10 For we are God’s [own] handiwork (His workmanship), recreated in Christ Jesus, [born anew] that we may do those good works which God predestined (planned beforehand) for us [taking paths which He prepared ahead of time], that we should walk in them [living the good life which He prearranged and made ready for us to live].

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.
