The Underground Mine Shafts Vision 12-4-11
I was sitting at the sound table in church listening to Patrick minister to the People, and suddenly I was shown a huge underground scene. I saw many tunnels being dug. They were scattered everywhere and they were all at different levels of depth and also different degrees of mining. Some were just beginning to dig below the surface. Some had broken down to the deeper depths that were harder to get through. Others were very deep and had even begun to spread out into extra branches that went horizontal as well as vertical. In each of these shafts, the miners had found some deposits of ore and were taking them to the surface as they progressed in their various endeavors.
I saw that each was unaware of the other mine shaft, except for a few that had bumped into another's mine shaft under the surface and they had begun to work together in their now expanded shaft. I noticed that those that had discovered another mine shaft had the ability to go deeper than they could of alone. I also saw that there were some other shafts that when they broke through and found another shaft that they grew angry and they went back up to the surface and filled in their shaft. They would not share their ore with the other miners. There was a lot of activity and even above the surface the atmosphere was tense, as the ore that was being sent above was grabbed immediately by those waiting for it and it was sent to the factories and packaged as soon as it was discovered. A very few took the ore and put it in the smelter that stood by and they watched over it patiently, I could see that they recognized the value of the ore and wanted to increase their value so they put it in the fires. But most only wanted to profit from the ore as it was. I could see their ore was not as good as the ore that was refined in the smelter.
Then I looked back at the mines below the surface and I saw the Hand of the Lord put an invisible barrier under the deepest mine and it could go no deeper. This forced the mines to either begin to spread out or to eventually exhaust their supply of ore in their shaft. So, more and more of the mines began to spread out and eventually they created a great vast tunneling system and caves and eventually small networks that began to interconnect and increase in it's capacity to not only bring ore to the surface, but also to teach each other what they had learned as they dug. So the miners then began to employ each other's digging methods and soon, they all began to mine for ore the same way. They even perfected new methods as they joined forces that had never been thought of before.
As I watched, I saw the Lord then shake the earth, and some of the shafts collapsed and they were forced to moved into another's tunnel to help them, and also some of the other tunnels were expanded into greater sized caves than before because of the earthquake. Over time, I saw that the Lord also watched their progress and as they began to move in a vast network system and as they then utilized each others resources in a greater harmony. Then the Lord removed His Hand that restrained them from going deeper. As He did this, they all sensed the new release and with a joint effort they began to all dig deeper and to send the ore up to the surface together. As they went into depths that no one had dug to before, they began to find ore that was so big that they had to have great cranes reach down and lift it to the surface. The ore in the greatest depths also had an inner brilliance and luminosity that caused them to not need their machines, and flashlights and the usual mining gear that they had needed on the shallower surfaces. So their tasks were easier and more men could help them.
The more I watched the more joy I felt because I saw that even those men on the surface that had formerly grabbed the ore as soon as it reached the surface, even they were now growing excited over the great big stones that were now being lifted up by the cranes. So much was being brought up that they also saw it's value and everything that came up was now sent to the smelter right away. The factories now had to wait till the ore was refined. Soon, even the factory workers joined in the smelting and so great was the smelting that the factories closed, and were refitted into smelting ovens too. All of the workers were excited because they were all talking about the great stones that were lifted to the surface and they wondered what they would be when they opened the ovens to see the treasures that would emerge. I watched and the excitement spread even further, and soon, the whole town heard of the activity and everyone came to watch and to help. As this happened, there was no one unemployed and the whole town prospered.
When other towns heard what the other city was doing, the leaders from that town came and learned what had occurred and soon they joined in and started smelting operations too to help the miners. Soon it spread and towns all over the nation became smelters and workers in the mines. The whole nation them began to prosper and the joy that spread through them was exhilarating to watch. They were all so caught up in bringing the ore to the surface that they left their other tasks too and nothing was done at all, but mining the mines. The Lord stood next to me as I watched and He smiled. He asked Me if I understood the vision. I said, "Yes." He then said, "That's good, but there's still more."
He then pointed and said, "What you see is the progress of My Church from the very beginning, up till this present generation. I have withheld much of the discovery of My Word and it's deeper truths because men still most only want it for themselves and do not share it with others. Many profit from it and they do not value it enough to give it's true worth to others to see the people increase. I have withheld much of the deeper truths because most do not perceive My Heart in the earth, nor My intentions because of the hardness of their hearts and the selfish desires that breed the pride that keeps them independent of each other. So I have forced them to either quit digging or to branch out and also to discover their brother who labors in the fields next to them. This field is given to all of My Body, and I now demand that My Body become one and to learn to supply what each other needs and also lacks. As you saw, many do not yet trust each other enough to see that I am the Lord within each of them. When they can recognize Me within each of them, then they will have to choose to either embrace Me in them, or they will reject Me. This will cause them to be disqualified, or to be further enabled to produce even more of My Ore. I have purposely hidden the greatest of Revelations in the very deepest places, and these deposits will soon be discovered, for I have determined that your generation find them in this New Day. This is the Church's finest Hour, and if they will learn to work together as they each follow Me, then they will achieve this that I have for them. It is appointed unto you to bring forth the hidden treasures of the deep and to finish My Workmanship that I have begun. You will each determine the Ore that will be brought forth and that will be valued in the earth, for I have desired that all men share in the Knowledge of Me."
"The Ore in the deepest levels is the Knowledge of My Glory that has not yet been apprehended by any generation up till now. If you do not come into the measure of the fullest stature of the Knowledge of My Glory that I have desired for you to, then I will shake the mines severely in My quake and I will start anew with a fresh field and I will bring new miners to My Land to start again. There is no more time to remain alone, you each must reach out and inter connect to have a greater effect and to apprehend the depth of the knowledge of Me that will satisfy the cry of inhabitants of the earth. I have heard their cries, and I have made you the ones to meet the demands for My Word and it's life, but what will you each do with the measure of Understanding and Grace that I have given unto you? I have the greatest of treasures waiting for you. Spread out your tent pegs and make room for Me, for I shall fill you all liberally as you all obey Me unselfishly."
Then the vision ended.
Job 28:1 "Surely there is a mine for silver, and a place for gold that they refine. 2 Iron is taken out of the earth, and copper is smelted from the ore. 3 Man puts an end to darkness and searches out to the farthest limit the ore in gloom and deep darkness. 4 He opens shafts in a valley away from where anyone lives; they are forgotten by travelers; they hang in the air, far away from mankind; they swing to and fro. 5 As for the earth, out of it comes bread, but underneath it is turned up as by fire. 6 Its stones are the place of sapphires, and it has dust of gold. 7 "That path no bird of prey knows, and the falcon’s eye has not seen it. 8 The proud beasts have not trodden it; the lion has not passed over it. 9 "Man puts his hand to the flinty rock and overturns mountains by the roots. 10 He cuts out channels in the rocks, and his eye sees every precious thing. 11 He dams up the streams so that they do not trickle, and the thing that is hidden he brings out to light. 12 "But where shall wisdom be found? And where is the place of understanding? 13 Man does not know its worth, and it is not found in the land of the living. 14 The deep says, 'It is not in me,' and the sea says, 'It is not with me.' 15 It cannot be bought for gold, and silver cannot be weighed as its price. 16 It cannot be valued in the gold of Ophir, in precious onyx or sapphire. 17 Gold and glass cannot equal it, nor can it be exchanged for jewels of fine gold. 18 No mention shall be made of coral or of crystal; the price of wisdom is above pearls. 19 The topaz of Ethiopia cannot equal it, nor can it be valued in pure gold. 20 "From where, then, does wisdom come? And where is the place of understanding? 21 It is hidden from the eyes of all living and concealed from the birds of the air. 22 Abaddon and Death say, 'We have heard a rumor of it with our ears.' 23"God understands the way to it, and he knows its place. 24 For he looks to the ends of the earth and sees everything under the heavens. 25 When he gave to the wind its weight and apportioned the waters by measure, 26when he made a decree for the rain and a way for the lightning of the thunder, 27 then he saw it and declared it; he established it, and searched it out. 28 And he said to man,' Behold, the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom, and to turn away from evil is understanding.'"
