Jesus Planting A Garden In Our Midst Vision - 4/29/12

Jesus Planting A Garden In Our Midst Vision - 4/29/12

Tonight during the church service, I saw Jesus walking in our midst, and the whole church was looked like a garden that had been cultivated and was now ready to be planted. Jesus had the rows made and was walking by each of us and He was singing and planting flower seeds. He was smiling as He was planting the flowers all around us and I knew that He was happy to be doing this. There were also angels standing by and they held baskets of fish, and as Jesus planted a flower seeds, the angel would drop a fish down in the hole with it and then cover it up. They did this till the entire field, or our church, was planted with flower seeds.

The Lord said, "I have desired and purposed that My People would blossom and bloom in this Season ahead, even in the midst of difficult circumstances. I am planting My Joy and Life deep into them, to even go very deep, and they will bloom into a very fragrant planting, that the world will smell and wonder at in the days ahead. I want fruitfulness and a great display of My Goodness to be seen, as they spring forth into new fresh life and vitality. Even among the world's troubles, I will have My Garden! The fish represent the vision for the harvest that is being planted deep within My People, as I plant My Seeds within them, so they will burst forth with fresh vision and inspiration from Me, to fulfill their harvesting destinies. I will have a bountiful harvest, a fragrant harvest, and a joyful harvest! The fields of the world are already white, and My People will now blossom and bear much fruit. As I lay My seeds, suddenly they shall take root and shoot up forcefully, even overnight. I have tended My Gardens with great insight, and I will sing over her with great delight. My People will be radiant and fragrant even in the fading light, for they shall illuminate the earth and pollinate the earth with waves of Joy and Life! As I blow upon My Gardens, My Plantings will release the fragrance and knowledge of Me, and wherever My Winds will carry her, many will be drawn to My Garden of Intimacy, as they see My Blossoms arise quickly." -End of vision.

Scriptures the Lord gave to me:

Psalms 103:15 As for man, his days are as grass; as a flower of the field, so he flourishes.

Isaiah 35:1 THE WILDERNESS and the dry land shall be glad; the desert shall rejoice and blossom like the rose and the autumn crocus. 2 It shall blossom abundantly and rejoice even with joy and singing. The glory of Lebanon shall be given to it, the excellency of [Mount] Carmel and [the plain] of Sharon. They shall see the glory of the Lord, the majesty and splendor and excellency of our God.

Isaiah 40:5 And the glory (majesty and splendor) of the Lord shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together; for the mouth of the Lord has spoken it. 6 A voice says, Cry [prophesy]! And I said, What shall I cry? [The voice answered, Proclaim:] All flesh is as frail as grass, and all that makes it attractive [its kindness, its goodwill, its mercy from God, its glory and comeliness, however good] is transitory, like the flower of the field. 7 The grass withers, the flower fades, when the breath of the Lord blows upon it; surely [all] the people are like grass.

Hosea 14:5 I will be like the dew and the night mist to Israel; he shall grow and blossom like the lily and cast forth his roots like [the sturdy evergreens of] Lebanon. 7 They that dwell under his shade shall return; they shall revive like the grain and blossom like the vine; the scent of it shall be like the wine of Lebanon.

Song of Solomon 2:13 The fig tree forms its early fruit; the blossoming vines spread their fragrance. Arise, come, my darling; my beautiful one, come with me.”

Song of Solomon 7:12 Let us go early to the vineyards to see if the vines have budded, if their blossoms have opened, and if the pomegranates are in bloom— there I will give you my love.

Isaiah 27:6 In the days and generations to come Jacob shall take root; Israel shall blossom and send forth shoots and fill the whole world with fruit [of the knowledge of the true God].

Isaiah 60:21 Your people also shall all be [uncompromisingly and consistently] righteous; they shall possess the land forever, the branch of My planting, the work of My hands, that I may be glorified.

Isaiah 61:3 To grant [consolation and joy] to those who mourn in Zion--to give them an ornament (a garland or diadem) of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, the garment [expressive] of praise instead of a heavy, burdened, and failing spirit--that they may be called oaks of righteousness [lofty, strong, and magnificent, distinguished for uprightness, justice, and right standing with God], the planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified.

2 Corinthians 2:14 But thanks be to God, who always leads us as captives in Christ’s triumphal procession and uses us to spread the aroma of the knowledge of him everywhere. 15 For we are to God the pleasing aroma of Christ among those who are being saved and those who are perishing. 16 To the one we are an aroma that brings death; to the other, an aroma that brings life. And who is equal to such a task?

"Transcript of audio of Prophecy on Healing" Susan O'Marra 5/15/11

"Transcript of audio of Prophecy on Healing" Susan O'Marra 5/15/11

I am the living word and just as I was in the beginning, I am in the end. And just as I have created the beginning , I have created the end. And I know all things in between.

And just as I have created Man to walk with Me and to know Me in every generation. That generation must apprehend that same life It is not my will that you would walk in despair and in hopelessness and in depression and in frustration and in darkness.

It was not my will that man fell, but it is my will that man live. And so I brought life in the form of my Son. And I have given every man in the earth the opportunity to live.

And know that my word is working in your life. It is not my will that death rules in your body. But I have given you my word that you might live. I have given you my word that you might believe it and live.

It is not my will that your soul be in torment and in darkness and death. Warring in your mind. But it is my will that your soul lives. That your soul would be full of light.

And it is not my will that your spirit be in darkness or death either. That is why my light came to you and you became my child, when you accepted my life.

But just as you accepted my life in your spirit and you became born again, so you must accept my life in your soul and in your body. You must appropriate Me the living word and you must receive my life, my word, into your thoughts, into your mind.

For just as your soul prospers in my word so shall your flesh. Does not my word say as your soul prospers, you shall prosper?

If you think in your mind death, but try to confess in your body life, it shall not work. For what agreement has darkness with light? As you must know that my word is alive, you must know and settle it in your soul and renew your mind daily with my word.

For it is my mind , my word imparted into your mind as you read my word that brings you out of darkness into light. And as you lay hold of my word in your soul, your soul shall live and your soul shall prosper and therefore my word will drop down into your flesh and it will bare fruit and prosper there too. You must let my life heal you spirit, soul, and body.

There can be no war in your members. If your spirit and your soul and your body do not agree then my life is not working in thee. But take my word and speak it to your soul. Speak it to your spirit. Speak it to your flesh so that they can hear it.

And know that as I am in life, you are in life. And my life shall be spread abroad in you. The knowledge of my life shall bear fruit in you and you will live in my life.

I am teaching you to abide in me. I'm teaching you to abide in my word. For I said if my words abide in you and you abide in me, that we will come in. We will sup with you. Ask what you will and it will be done unto you.

But there must be no conflict. But as you speak my word and as you conceive it and as you believe it and as you fertilize it and as you give it life. I shall water it. I shall bring it forth.

And the supping shall take place. And your soul shall live. And your body shall live. And your spirit shall live. Because I have called you to live as I live.

Setting Our Wills to Christ's Will

Setting our Wills, Thoughts, Purposes, and Actions to Christ's

The Lord spoke to me through this verse today:

Hebrews 7:25 “Therefore He is able also to save to the uttermost (completely, perfectly, finally, and for all time and eternity) those who draw near to Him, who come to God through Him, since He is always living to make petition to God and intercede with Him and intervene for them.”

Completely - Perfectly - Finally - For all time -  and Eternity......

- God has a detailed plan for our lives to unfold!

God's Winds of Change brings the necessary changes to our lives, in every area, so that we can walk in the fullness of God's plans.

But we must embrace the Winds of Change!

1 John 2:1 MY LITTLE children, I write you these things so that you may not violate God's law and sin. But if anyone should sin, we have an Advocate (One Who will intercede for us) with the Father--[it is] Jesus Christ [the all] righteous [upright, just, Who conforms to the Father's will in every purpose, thought, and action].

1 John 1:9 If we [freely] admit that we have sinned and confess our sins, He is faithful and just (true to His own nature and promises) and will forgive our sins [dismiss our lawlessness] and [continuously] cleanse us from all unrighteousness [everything not in conformity to His will in purpose, thought, and action].

2 Timothy 3:16 Every Scripture is God-breathed (given by His inspiration) and profitable for instruction, for reproof and conviction of sin, for correction of error and discipline in obedience, [and] for training in righteousness (in holy living, in conformity to God's will in thought, purpose, and action),

Hebrews 12:11 For the time being no discipline brings joy, but seems grievous and painful; but afterwards it yields a peaceable fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it [a harvest of fruit which consists in righteousness--in conformity to God's will in purpose, thought, and action, resulting in right living and right standing with God].

Romans 6:18 And having been set free from sin, you have become the servants of righteousness (of conformity to the divine will in thought, purpose, and action).

Romans 8:27And He Who searches the hearts of men knows what is in the mind of the [Holy] Spirit [what His intent is], because the Spirit intercedes and pleads [before God] in behalf of the saints according to and in harmony with God's will.

The Lord prays for us according to the Father's will, and the Holy Spirit empowers us to change and live it out, as we learn to be conformed to Him.

We must embrace the changes, trust God while we are going through them, and believe that He will bring all things into harmony with His will while we are in transition. 

He knows just what He is doing!

We must be set towards the goal of the high calling!

Galatians 5:5 For we, [not relying on the Law but] through the [Holy] Spirit's [help], by faith anticipate and wait for the blessing and good for which our righteousness and right standing with God [our conformity to His will in purpose, thought, and action, causes us] to hope.

Galatians 3:6 Thus Abraham believed in and adhered to and trusted in and relied on God, and it was reckoned and placed to his account and credited as righteousness (as conformity to the divine will in purpose, thought, and action).

Titus 3:7 [And He did it in order] that we might be justified by His grace (by His favor, wholly undeserved), [that we might be acknowledged and counted as conformed to the divine will in purpose, thought, and action], and that we might become heirs of eternal life according to [our] hope.

1 John 2:9 If you know (perceive and are sure) that He [Christ] is [absolutely] righteous [conforming to the Father's will in purpose, thought, and action], you may also know (be sure) that everyone who does righteously [and is therefore in like manner conformed to the divine will] is born (begotten) of Him [ God].

1 John 3:7 Boys (lads), let no one deceive and lead you astray. He who practices righteousness [who is upright, conforming to the divine will in purpose, thought, and action, living a consistently conscientious life] is righteous, even as He is righteous.

-Being in conformity to God's will in purpose, thought, and action, resulting in right living and right standing with God] means:

1. We must set our wills to do His Will
2. We must determine to not do our own plans and purposes, but to live each day for His Purposes alone
3. We must set our thoughts to think His Thoughts and do them
4. We must move only when we are moved by the Holy Spirit so that our actions will be His Actions

Examples in the Word of lives controlled by the Holy Spirit:

Luke 1:15 For he (John) will be great and distinguished in the sight of the Lord. And he must drink no wine nor strong drink, and he will be filled with and controlled by the Holy Spirit even in and from his mother's womb.
41 And it occurred that when Elizabeth heard Mary's greeting, the baby leaped in her womb, and Elizabeth was filled with and controlled by the Holy Spirit.
67 Now Zachariah his father was filled with and controlled by the Holy Spirit and prophesied, saying,

Luke 4:1 THEN JESUS, full of and controlled by the Holy Spirit, returned from the Jordan and was led in [by] the [Holy] Spirit.

Acts 4:8 Then Peter, [because he was] filled with [and controlled by] the Holy Spirit, said to them, Rulers of the people and members of the council (the Sanhedrin),

Acts 6:5 And the suggestion pleased the whole assembly, and they selected Stephen, a man full of faith (a strong and welcome belief that Jesus is the Messiah) and full of and controlled by the Holy Spirit,

Acts 7:55 But he, full of the Holy Spirit and controlled by Him, gazed into heaven and saw the glory (the splendor and majesty) of God, and Jesus standing at God's right hand;

Acts 11:24 For he (Barnabus) was a good man [ good in himself and also at once for the good and the advantage of other people], full of and controlled by the Holy Spirit and full of faith (of his belief that Jesus is the Messiah, through Whom we obtain eternal salvation). And a large company was added to the Lord.

Acts 13:9 But Saul, who is also called Paul, filled with and controlled by the Holy Spirit, looked steadily at...

Romans 8:4 So that the righteous and just requirement of the Law might be fully met in us who live and move not in the ways of the flesh but in the ways of the Spirit [our lives governed not by the standards and according to the dictates of the flesh, but controlled by the Holy Spirit]. 5 For those who are according to the flesh and are controlled by its unholy desires set their minds on and pursue those things which gratify the flesh, but those who are according to the Spirit and are controlled by the desires of the Spirit set their minds on and seek those things which gratify the [Holy] Spirit.

Galatians 6:1 BRETHREN, IF any person is overtaken in misconduct or sin of any sort, you who are spiritual [who are responsive to and controlled by the Spirit] should set him right and restore and reinstate him, without any sense of superiority and with all gentleness, keeping an attentive eye on yourself, lest you should be tempted also.

Galatians 5:25 If we live by the [Holy] Spirit, let us also walk by the Spirit. [If by the Holy Spirit we have our life in God, let us go forward walking in line, our conduct controlled by the Spirit.]

"Completely - Perfectly - Finally - For all time -  and Eternity......"

- God has a detailed plan for our lives to unfold, but we must fully rise up and be bold!

Philippians 3:14 I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.

Alexander's Grand Bell Vision

"Alexander's Grand Bell"

The Lord has been giving us many different prophetic pictures of the new communications that are about to be released to us in the earth. We released the post regarding the Communication packages earlier this week. This is another picture the Lord gave us tonight. The Lord wants us to fully understand what He is doing so that we can cooperate and also accomplish all of His directives that will come to us.

During the prayer watch at church, Patrick was leading the prayer and while he was praying, I saw a vision of an old style phone, much like the one above, except this one was also a supernatural phone. I heard the statement that it was "Alexander's Grand Bell."

The phone had a dial with holes in it for the numbers and a cord that led to the ear cup, and a voice speaker. Then as I watched, I saw a hand come down and it had the index finger pointed and it was going to put it's finger into the holes. When it drew close the phone began to change. The dial of the phone became a wheel, and the finger holes for the numbers became eyes within the wheel. The finger then poked into the eye of one of the holes and turned the wheel as if dialing the phone. When this happened, the wheel turned and power went from the wheel up the cord and into the bell shaped ear cup. The bell shaped ear cup then began to ring like a bell. As the bell shaped ear cup rang, the mouth piece that you speak into began to speak and it began to interpret what the bell was saying. I knew that the eyes and the wheel had to do with Ezekiel's wheel, and the index finger was the prophetic office.

The prophets are about to tap into new revelatory communications from heaven in such a degree that the 7 Spirits of God would begin to manifest through the revelatory communications in a way that we have never previously tapped into. When the prophets move in union and harmony with the 7 Spirits of God, the wheel or the revelatory realm would begin to release new fresh communications, which would turn the wheel and the power would then be sent to the ear cups of those with ears to hear. The bell shaped ear cup on the phone is typified as the prophetic people who have the capacity to receive God's prophetic communications through God's prophetic gifting. The bell represents the gifts of the Spirit. This then activates the voice to speak and translate or communicate the prophetic truths that are being released by the 7 fold Holy Spirit that is speaking new things, living oracles, to the Body of Christ, so that the whole Body of Christ can grow and flourish.

New Heavenly Communications are about to be released from heaven into the earth. The 7-fold Holy Spirit is about to ignite the Spiritual Gifts of the Holy Spirit in such a deep way, that the Prophets will release a new revelatory flow which will empower the Body of Christ to move in the Heavenly Realms with power and great accuracy. The Lord is about to release fresh wisdom, His Living Oracles, which will cause His Voice to be heard and also to be understood in the earth. The Father has held much truth in reserve for this generation. It is time for the Body of Christ to now apprehend them and to also move forwards into those truths to see the Wisdom of God flow and the revelation of the Lord be demonstrated in the earth. The Knowledge of the Glory of the Lord is about to be communicated in a fuller way. -End of the Vision

Scriptures the Lord led me to look up:

Zechariah 3:9 For behold, upon the stone which I have set before Joshua, upon that one stone are seven eyes or facets [the all-embracing providence of God and the sevenfold radiations of the Spirit of God]. Behold, I will carve upon it its inscription, says the Lord of hosts, and I will remove the iniquity and guilt of this land in a single day.

Zechariah 4:10 Who [with reason] despises the day of small things? For these seven shall rejoice when they see the plummet in the hand of Zerubbabel. [These seven] are the eyes of the Lord which run to and fro throughout the whole earth.

2 Chronicles 16:9 For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth to show Himself strong in behalf of those whose hearts are blameless toward Him.

Revelations 1:4 John to the seven assemblies (churches) that are in Asia: May grace (God's unmerited favor) be granted to you and spiritual peace ( the peace of Christ's kingdom) from Him Who is and Who was and Who is to come, and from the seven Spirits [ the sevenfold Holy Spirit] before His throne,

Revelations 5:6 And there between the throne and the four living creatures (beings) and among the elders [ of the heavenly Sanhedrin] I saw a Lamb standing, as though it had been slain, with seven horns and with seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God [ the sevenfold Holy Spirit] Who have been sent [on duty far and wide] into all the earth.

Revelations 22:6 And he [of the seven angels further] said to me, These statements are reliable (worthy of confidence) and genuine (true). And the Lord, the God of the spirits of the prophets, has sent His messenger (angel) to make known and exhibit to His servants what must soon come to pass.

Romans 3:2 Much in every way. To begin with, to the Jews were entrusted the oracles (the brief communications, the intentions, the utterances) of God.

Acts 7:38 This is the one who was in the congregation in the wilderness with the angel who spoke to him at Mount Sinai, and with our fathers. He received living oracles to give to us.

Deuteronomy 32:47 For it is no empty word for you, but your very life, and by this word you shall live long in the land that you are going over the Jordan to possess."

Habbakkuk 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. 14 But [the time is coming when] the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord as the waters cover the sea.

The Heavenly Communication Packages 4-23-12

The Heavenly Communication Packages 04-23-12

During the prayer watch at church this morning, I saw a vision. The Lord took me to a place in the heavenlies where I was standing with the Lord and we were walking towards a wall that was about waist high. We got to the wall and the Lord pointed down towards a city below. There was a lot of activity there and I noticed many angels in one section of the city below that were moving some boxes around. The boxes were all different shapes and sizes. Some angels had balls of light in their hands and were packing the light into boxes. Some were sealing boxes and others were carrying the boxes somewhere. Some other angels were sitting on piles of boxes and some were leaning on boxes watching the others who were working. The Lord was watching them and then He turned to me. He said, "These angels are assigned to deliver things from the heavenly realm into your earthly realm."

"The boxes that you see are a picture and a type of My Word. My Word is Light, and it is also like a container that holds My Promises to man. When My Prophetic Word is spoken, it is then filled with My Spirit, My Light, which inhabits that Word and gives it life. When the Word is received by a person, then their faith activates the Word to then begin to be delivered to them. My angels then go and bring forth everything that is necessary to see that Word will come to pass in their lives. But when the person doesn't believe the Word that was spoken, the angels cannot do anything with that Word, so they have to wait, or stand still, and the person does not gain My promise to them. I do not want this to continue. I want My People to believe in Me, and to believe that My Words that I speak to them are true. I want them to believe that I will fulfill My Promises to them. My Word cannot fail to come to pass, but it will also not be apprehended unless you believe. I want My Light, My Word, to be done in the earth."

"When I gave My Words to man, I intended that man would live by them, that man would also love them, and believe them. I never intended that My Words would ever be discarded, or doubted, or be unused by man. I am the Word. My Word is life and I intended man to be nourished and strengthened by My Words. But My People do not take My Words seriously and most do not accept them as fact. Many chase after other things in place of My Word. I am more than able to care for My People, and to accomplish all that I desire for them in their lives, but I cannot do so if the Word is not believed upon and also embraced by them."

"My Word carries all of My Life, which is My Breath, and all of My Love, and all of My Wisdom dwells within it. When I speak it forth, all of heaven is active in it's circuit, for My Words will go forth until someone apprehends it and gives birth to it. But what does not please Me is when My Promises are casually laid aside and forgotten, or when they are not deemed valuable enough to labor over them till they are fully grown in your realm. You must not lay down what I have spoken to you, or forget what I have promised to you, but you must continue to believe, and not doubt, till I work everything out. I have a timing for everything. You are at this timing of fulfillment again, in your generation. I am moving in the earth again to do great things on behalf of My People as a witness to the earth."

"I am bringing forth all of My Promises that I have spoken to you and have given to you, and I am working them out in a culmination in this hour. My Word is purposed to bear fruit in your lives on earth. My angels hearken to My Word and they bring it from the heavenly realm into your realm as you agree with Me, and accept it as true for you. Then they open that Promise and weave it into your paths so that you can walk it out and mature into it, then it can be fully reaped by you. Nothing is ever wasted by Me, I work out everything in your lives for your maturity. When I fulfill My Promises, I do it completely. That is why you have to fully walk them out over time, and let them unfold as you go, for My Word is to become a very part of you, just as I am a part of you. For My Word and I are one. It is time for My Words to be delivered in a great display and to be opened by men again. It is time for My People to embody My Words to the world. It is time for the fruits of My Labors to be seen. You must not let one of My Words fall to the ground. You must bear fruit all around."

"I have shown you this so that you would understand that all of My Words are available for you, and every Promise in My Word is true and can be gotten by men if they would only believe. Your faith activates the Promise, which causes it to then begin it's process of transportation to you by My Spirit. If you waver in your belief, you then slow down that transportation and delivery process, and you can even stop it completely from coming to pass in your life. My angels love to see all of My Words live. They love to see Me work in the earth, and they love to join with Me as I do My works. I want My Word to live also, for I made you to fellowship with Me, the Living Word. When you embody My Words within your life, then we both fellowship through My Words that are in living you, as well as My Love. I want more of My Words to be activated in the earth. I want a full birth. I want a great harvest of My Words to pour out of My People in this hour. Heaven is waiting for you to give My Words power."

"It is harvest time, and I will cause multitudes to come into My Kingdom as I continue to move in the earth, but I also want a harvest of My Words too! I want every promise given to men to be reaped by you, in your day. I do not want any more delay! I want My Words to come to pass quickly. What do you want my angels to do for you? If you will agree with Me and agree with My Words, and believe what I have said to you, then you shall not fail to produce all that I have called you to, for My angels are ready to move everything that is necessary of fulfillment into it's positions. Seek Me diligently for your Promises, and do not stop believing till I finish the work needed to bring them forth, for if you will do this, then nothing shall fail concerning your destiny, for I will fulfill it all, as you obey My call. I have told you how to apprehend all of My Promises in My Word, and how they are activated by you, and ultimately released to you as you obey. I watch over My Word to perform it. My angels are waiting to obey. Speak My Words, and they shall surely be heard. Believe in My Words and they shall surely be done."

The vision ended.

Scriptures the Lord quickened to me:

Psalms 19:1 THE HEAVENS declare the glory of God; and the firmament shows and proclaims His handiwork.  2 Day after day pours forth speech, and night after night shows forth knowledge. 3 There is no speech nor spoken word [from the stars]; their voice is not heard. 4 Yet their voice [in evidence] goes out through all the earth, their sayings to the end of the world. Of the heavens has God made a tent for the sun, 5 Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber; and it rejoices as a strong man to run his course. 6 Its going forth is from the end of the heavens, and its circuit to the ends of it; and nothing [yes, no one] is hidden from the heat of it. 7 The law of the Lord is perfect, restoring the [whole] person; the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple. 8 The precepts of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart; the commandment of the Lord is pure and bright, enlightening the eyes. 9 The [reverent] fear of the Lord is clean, enduring forever; the ordinances of the Lord are true and righteous altogether. 10 More to be desired are they than gold, even than much fine gold; they are sweeter also than honey and drippings from the honeycomb. 11 Moreover, by them is Your servant warned (reminded, illuminated, and instructed); and in keeping them there is great reward.

Romans 10:16 But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Isaiah says, "Lord, who has believed what he has heard from us?" 17 So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ. 18 But I ask, have they not heard? Indeed they have, for "Their voice has gone out to all the earth, and their words to the ends of the world."

2 Timothy 3:16 All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, 17 that the man of God may be competent, equipped for every good work.

John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made. 4 In him was life, and the life was the light of men. 5The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.

Psalms 119:130 The unfolding of your words gives light; it imparts understanding to the simple.

Galatians 3:22 But Scripture has locked up everything under the control of sin, so that what was promised, being given through faith in Jesus Christ, might be given to those who believe.

Psalms 106:24 Then they despised the pleasant land, having no faith in his promise.
Luke 1:45 Blessed is she who has believed that the Lord would fulfill his promises to her!”

Hebrews 6:12 so that you may not be sluggish, but imitators of those who through faith and patience inherit the promises.

Hebrews 10:23 Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who promised is faithful.

Hebrews 10:36 For you have need of endurance, so that when you have done the will of God you may receive what is promised.

Psalms 119:48 My eyes are awake before the watches of the night, that I may meditate on your promise.

Romans 4:20 No distrust made him waver concerning the promise of God, but he grew strong in his faith as he gave glory to God, fully convinced that God was able to do what he had promised.

Angels Trimming Hedges Vision 04-20-12

Angels trimming the Hedges vision:

While at the prayer watch on 4/20/12, the Lord showed me a vision of many angels who had long bladed instruments and they were trimming hedges and straggly looking bushes that had grown up around the outside of the windows of a building. The bushes were unkempt and needed trimming and re-shaping so that you could see out of the windows. The Lord then said, "This represents the realm of the soul and of the spirit in My Church that is cluttered with the things of the world and the things of this life. Many have allowed themselves to be entangled with cares and with busyness, so much so, that their spiritual receptivity to Me is cluttered and diluted. I am bringing forth a new trimming work among them so that they can be brought forth into greater clarity and into a more accurate level of spiritual insight, and so that they can more fully understand the things that I want to do among them in the days ahead. I am going to unclutter My Church."

John 15:1 I AM the True Vine, and My Father is the Vinedresser. 2 Any branch in Me that does not bear fruit [that stops bearing] He cuts away (trims off, takes away); and He cleanses and repeatedly prunes every branch that continues to bear fruit, to make it bear more and richer and more excellent fruit. 3 You are cleansed and pruned already, because of the word which I have given you [the teachings I have discussed with you].

Matthew 15:13 He answered, "Every plant that my heavenly Father has not planted will be rooted up.  ESV

Romans 11:22 Then note and appreciate the gracious kindness and the severity of God: severity toward those who have fallen, but God's gracious kindness to you--provided you continue in His grace and abide in His kindness; otherwise you too will be cut off (pruned away).

The world and it's desires cloud the vision:

1 John 2:15 Do not love or cherish the world or the things that are in the world. If anyone loves the world, love for the Father is not in him. 16 For all that is in the world--the lust of the flesh [craving for sensual gratification] and the lust of the eyes [greedy longings of the mind] and the pride of life [assurance in one's own resources or in the stability of earthly things]--these do not come from the Father but are from the world [itself]. 17 And the world passes away and disappears, and with it the forbidden cravings (the passionate desires, the lust) of it; but he who does the will of God and carries out His purposes in his life abides (remains) forever.

Job 30:13 They break up and clutter my path [embarrassing my plans]; they urge on my calamity, even though they have no helper [and are themselves helpless].

Luke 11:34 Your eye is the lamp of your body; when your eye (your conscience) is sound and fulfilling its office, your whole body is full of light; but when it is not sound and is not fulfilling its office, your body is full of darkness. 35 Be careful, therefore, that the light that is in you is not darkness.

Notice the work of the office of the prophetic or the revelatory brings light to the Body. Clutter hinders the working of the Lord's light in the Body of Christ. A diminished revelation brings dullness and lethargy sets in.

Ø      Proverbs 29:18 Where there is no vision [no redemptive revelation of God], the people perish; but he who keeps the law [of God, which includes that of man]--blessed (happy, fortunate, and enviable) is he.

Ø      1 Samuel 3:1 Now the young man Samuel was ministering to the LORD under Eli. And the word of the LORD was rare in those days; there was no frequent vision.

Ø      2 Chronicles 15:3 For a long time Israel was without the true God, and without a teaching priest and without law,

Ø      Psalms 74:9 We do not see our signs; there is no longer any prophet, and there is none among us who knows how long.

Matthew 6:21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. 22 The eye is the lamp of the body. So if your eye is sound, your entire body will be full of light. But if your eye is unsound, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the very light in you [your conscience] is darkened, how dense is that darkness!

Ø      Lethargy aids in dulling the conscience (your spiritual discernment in your spirit) to become weak and unresponsive to the Holy Spirit's warnings, thereby if it is not engaged, eventually your conscience will harden and become seared.

Deuteronomy 4:9 "Only take care, and keep your soul diligently, lest you forget the things that your eyes have seen, and lest they depart from your heart all the days of your life. Make them known to your children and your children’s children—

Deuteronomy 11:18 "You shall therefore lay up these words of mine in your heart and in your soul, and you shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes.       - Focus keeps your faith grounded!

The world, the flesh, and it's desires dull the hearing:

Acts 5:11 Concerning this we have much to say which is hard to explain, since you have become dull in your [spiritual] hearing and sluggish [even slothful in achieving spiritual insight].

Mark 4:18 And the ones sown among the thorns are others who hear the Word; 19 Then the cares and anxieties of the world and distractions of the age, and the pleasure and delight and false glamour and deceitfulness of riches, and the craving and passionate desire for other things creep in and choke and suffocate the Word, and it becomes fruitless.

Acts 28:27 For the heart (the understanding, the soul) of this people has grown dull (stupid, hardened, and calloused), and their ears are heavy and hard of hearing and they have shut tight their eyes, so that they may not perceive and have knowledge and become acquainted with their eyes and hear with their ears and understand with their souls and turn [to Me and be converted], that I may heal them.

The Word of God (by the Holy Spirit) washes our souls and spirits when it is spoken to us and embraced by us.

Ephesians 5:26 So that He might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the Word,
John 17:17  Sanctify them in the truth; your word is truth.
Titus 3:5 He saved us, not because of any works of righteousness that we had done, but because of His own pity and mercy, by [the] cleansing [bath] of the new birth (regeneration) and renewing of the Holy Spirit,

Removing the Clutter and clearing our Spiritual Seeing:

Acts 24:16 Therefore I always exercise and discipline myself [mortifying my body, deadening my carnal affections, bodily appetites, and worldly desires, endeavoring in all respects] to have a clear (unshaken, blameless) conscience, void of offense toward God and toward men.

Job 4:25 I had heard of You [only] by the hearing of the ear, but now my [spiritual] eye sees You.

Numbers 22:31 Then the Lord opened Balaam's eyes, and he saw the Angel of the Lord standing in the way with His sword drawn in His hand; and he bowed his head and fell on his face.

Numbers 24:3 And he took up his [figurative] discourse and said: Balaam son of Beor, the man whose eye is opened [at last, to see clearly the purposes and will of God], 4 He [Balaam] who hears the words of God, who sees the vision of the Almighty, falling down, but having his eyes open and uncovered, he says: 5 How attractive and considerable are your tents, O Jacob, and your tabernacles, O Israel!

15 And he took up his [figurative] discourse, and said: Balaam son of Beor speaks, the man whose eye is opened speaks, 16 He speaks, who heard the words of God and knew the knowledge of the Most High, who saw the vision of the Almighty, falling down, but having his eyes open and uncovered. 17 I see Him, but not now; I behold Him, but He is not near. A star (Star) shall come forth out of Jacob, and a scepter (Scepter) shall rise out of Israel and shall crush all the corners of Moab and break down all the sons of Sheth [Moab's sons of tumult].

2 Peter 1:1 SIMON PETER, a servant and apostle (special messenger) of Jesus Christ, to those who have received (obtained an equal privilege of) like precious faith with ourselves in and through the righteousness of our God and Savior Jesus Christ: 2 May grace (God's favor) and peace (which is perfect well-being, all necessary good, all spiritual prosperity, and freedom from fears and agitating passions and moral conflicts) be multiplied to you in [the full, personal, precise, and correct] knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord. 3 For His divine power has bestowed upon us all things that [are requisite and suited] to life and godliness, through the [full, personal] knowledge of Him Who called us by and to His own glory and excellence (virtue). 4 By means of these He has bestowed on us His precious and exceedingly great promises, so that through them you may escape [by flight] from the moral decay (rottenness and corruption) that is in the world because of covetousness (lust and greed), and become sharers (partakers) of the divine nature. 5 For this very reason, adding your diligence [to the divine promises], employ every effort in exercising your faith to develop virtue (excellence, resolution, Christian energy), and in [exercising] virtue [develop] knowledge (intelligence), 6 And in [exercising] knowledge [develop] self-control, and in [exercising] self-control [develop] steadfastness (patience, endurance), and in [exercising] steadfastness [develop] godliness (piety), 7 And in [exercising] godliness [develop] brotherly affection, and in [exercising] brotherly affection [develop] Christian love. 8 For as these qualities are yours and increasingly abound in you, they will keep [you] from being idle or unfruitful unto the [full personal] knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One). 9 For whoever lacks these qualities is blind, [spiritually] shortsighted, seeing only what is near to him, and has become oblivious [to the fact] that he was cleansed from his old sins.

Dream of of Bonnie Brae Seeds

"Dream of being given a container of Brae Seeds on 4-15-12"

In the dream, it's summertime and I am outside ministering to a large group of people. I then walk around them and go into a House. In the House, I am talking with a man and woman who have a problem with their son and wife who have overstayed their welcome there with no signs of leaving. The couple had marital problems. I begin to talking with them about the healing power of love. I then talk to the parents again and he gives me a plastic container labeled Brae. The Brae inside look like small granules much like brown rice, but also looks like thin slivers of broken shards of brownish glass. He tells me that they now have invented a cooker that will cook the Brae. I told the owners that the young couple are to leave their house because they're too comfortable there. Then at 9:28 pm, I get a phone call that it is time to go home now. So, I go outside and begin to walk towards a parking lot. Several young men start to come towards me, I realize I am going to be ambushed for an attack. I scream for help and a couple of people from among a group further away from me, hear my cry and they turn and run towards my direction to help me. Many from that group saw the attack and they turn away and do not help me. I yelled at them that when they need help that they wont have any help come to them. The ones that do come to help me engage some of the men who were trying to harm me. I turn towards the one who is grabbing me and I got mad and I begin to bind the devil in him. I grab his bottom lip and pull it hard. He fights back and I don't let go. I command the murderous spirits to leave him very boldly. A strange look comes over him, and I got bolder and I bind the devil more and he begins to manifest. I command the devils to come out of him and the man says something about, "just wait till the towers come". Then he starts to throw up all of the demons in a great big flood. As he is throwing up, I am saying back to him, "then those towers will also fall." Then he becomes calm and a smile breaks out on his face. -Then I wake up.

I immediately knew:

The time of 9:28 pm was important. I didn't know why, but I was going to look up info on it. I also knew that because it was a phone call to come home, that it was symbolic of "my calling" to now go to the root of things. I later learned (Seymour died of a heart attack on September 28, 1922) So, God was going to restart what had died, and the church must pick up that baton and finish what God wants to be completed now in our generation. It's now our turn to ignite entire cities for God!

The container of Brae was the seeds of the former Bonnie Brae House revival now needing to be cooked, or re-birthed. The cooker had now been invented and developed that would now be able to cook the Brae, meaning that we were now at the maturity level to begin to birth forth and ignite the Bonnie Brae seeds outwardly now.

The couple who lived in the original house were the owners of the Bonnie Brae former times of revival, Richard and Ruth Asberry at 214 North Bonnie Brae Street. The couple with marital problems were the children of the owners and they were living off of them and were being lazy there and not moving out. They had marital problems and were in discord, division and strife in their relationship, and this depicts the condition of the church now.... (seen as the children of the former move.)

After I was given the Brae seeds and left, immediately the devil attacked me through the group of men outside. The enemy will attack anyone with the calling and mandate to restore the former moves and to birth forth the church into the new things of God for their areas. The towers the attacker spoke of were the higher ruling powers, (likened unto towers), that would come after them to attack us next. But I said, "even those towers would also fall."

So, I got up and researched on the Azusa Street Revival from Wikipedia to find out more:

The Azusa Street Revival was a historic Pentecostal revival meeting that took place in Los Angeles, California and is the origin of the Pentecostal movement. It was led by William J. Seymour, an African American preacher. It began with a meeting on April 14, 1906, and continued until roughly 1915.

The revival was characterized by ecstatic spiritual experiences accompanied by miracles, dramatic worship services, speaking in tongues, and inter-racial mingling. The participants were criticized by the secular media and Christian theologians for behaviors considered to be outrageous and unorthodox, especially at the time. Today, the revival is considered by historians to be the primary catalyst for the spread of Pentecostalism in the 20th century.

In 1905, William J. Seymour, the one-eyed 34 year old son of former slaves, was a student of well-known Pentecostal preacher Charles Parham and an interim pastor for a small holiness church in Houston, Texas. Neely Terry, an African American woman who attended a small holiness church pastored by Julia Hutchins in Los Angeles, made a trip to visit family in Houston late in 1905. While in Houston, she visited Seymour's church, where he preached the baptism of the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in tongues, and though he had not experienced this personally, Terry was impressed with his character and message. Once home in California, Terry suggested that Seymour be invited to speak at the local church. Seymour received and accepted the invitation in February 1906, and he received financial help and a blessing from Parham for his planned one-month visit. 

Seymour arrived in Los Angeles on February 22, 1906, and within two days was preaching at Julia Hutchins' church at the corner of Ninth Street and Santa Fe Avenue. During his first sermon, he preached that speaking in tongues was the first biblical evidence of the inevitable baptism in the Holy Spirit. On the following Sunday, March 4, he returned to the church and found that Hutchins had padlocked the door. Elders of the church rejected Seymour's teaching, primarily because he had not yet experienced the blessing about which he was preaching. Condemnation of his message also came from the Holiness Church Association of Southern California with which the church had affiliation. However, not all members of Hutchins' church rejected Seymour's preaching. He was invited to stay in the home of congregation member Edward S. Lee, and he began to hold Bible studies and prayer meetings there.

Seymour and his small group of new followers soon relocated to the home of Richard and Ruth Asberry at 214 North Bonnie Brae Street. White families from local holiness churches began to attend as well. The group would get together regularly and pray to receive the baptism of the Holy Spirit. On April 9, 1906, after five weeks of Seymour's preaching and prayer, and three days into an intended 10-day fast, Edward S. Lee spoke in tongues for the first time. At the next meeting, Seymour shared Lee's testimony and preached a sermon on Acts 2:4 and soon six others began to speak in tongues as well, including Jennie Moore, who would later become Seymour's wife. A few days later, on April 12, Seymour spoke in tongues for the first time after praying all night long. 

The Asberry home on 214 North Bonnie Brae Street. News of the events at North Bonnie Brae St. quickly circulated among the African American, Latino and White residents of the city, and for several nights, various speakers would preach to the crowds of curious and interested onlookers from the front porch of the Asberry home. Members of the audience included people from a broad spectrum of income levels and religious backgrounds. Hutchins eventually spoke in tongues as her whole congregation began to attend the meetings. Soon the crowds became very large and were full of people speaking in tongues, shouting, singing and moaning. Finally, the front porch collapsed, forcing the group to begin looking for a new meeting place.

A resident of the neighborhood described the happenings at 214 North Bonnie Brae with the following words: 

They shouted three days and three nights. It was Easter season. The people came from everywhere. By the next morning there was no way of getting near the house. As people came in they would fall under God's power; and the whole city was stirred. They shouted until the foundation of the house gave way, but no one was hurt.

The group from Bonnie Brae Street eventually discovered an available building at 312 Azusa Street in downtown Los Angeles, which had originally been constructed as an African Methodist Episcopal Church in what was then a black ghetto part of town. The rent was $8.00 per month. A newspaper referred to the downtown Los Angeles building as a "tumble down shack". Since the church had moved out, the building had served as a wholesale house, a warehouse, a lumberyard, stockyards, a tombstone shop, and had most recently been used as a stable with rooms for rent upstairs. It was a small, rectangular, flat-roofed building, approximately 60 feet long and 40 feet wide, totaling 4,800 square feet, sided with weathered whitewashed clapboards. The only sign that it had once been a house of God was a single gothic-style window over the main entrance. 

Discarded lumber and plaster littered the large, barn-like room on the ground floor. Nonetheless, it was secured and cleaned in preparation for services. They held their first meeting on April 14, 1906. Church services were held on the first floor where the benches were placed in a rectangular pattern. Some of the benches were simply planks put on top of empty nail kegs. There was no elevated platform, as the ceiling was only eight feet high.[18] Initially there was no pulpit. Frank Bartleman, an early participant in the revival, recalled that "Brother Seymour generally sat behind two empty shoe boxes, one on top of the other. He usually kept his head inside the top one during the meeting, in prayer. There was no pride there.... In that old building, with its low rafters and bare floors..." 

The second floor at the now-named Apostolic Faith Mission housed an office and rooms for several residents including Seymour and his new wife, Jennie. It also had a large prayer room to handle the overflow from the altar services below. The prayer room was furnished with chairs and benches made from California Redwood planks, laid end to end on backless chairs. The Apostolic Faith Mission on Azusa Street, now considered to be the birthplace of Pentecostalism.
By mid-May 1906, anywhere from 300 to 1,500 people would attempt to fit into the building. Since horses had very recently been the residents of the building, flies constantly bothered the attendees. People from a diversity of backgrounds came together to worship: men, women, children, black, white, Hispanic, Asian, rich, poor, illiterate, and educated. People of all ages flocked to Los Angeles with both skepticism and a desire to participate. The intermingling of races and the group's encouragement of women in leadership was remarkable, as 1906 was the height of the "Jim Crow" era of racial segregation, and fourteen years prior to women receiving suffrage in the United States.

Seymour and the other revivalists at the Apostolic Faith Mission on Azusa Street held to five core beliefs:
  1. Salvation by Faith.
  2. Sanctification (or Holiness) of the believer.
  3. Tongues as evidence of Baptism with the Holy Spirit.
  4. Faith healing as part of God's redemption.
  5. The "very soon" return of Christ.
By October 1906, Charles Parham was invited to speak for a series of meetings at Azusa Street, but was quickly un-invited. Several reasons can be given for Azusa Street's disassociation from him. Firstly, Parham had personality conflicts with Seymour and wanted to be the chief authority figure of the movement that was taking place, but the presiding leaders of the Apostolic Faith Mission were slow to make any changes to their methods or leadership.

Christians from many traditions were critical, saying the movement was hyper-emotional, misused Scripture and lost focus on Christ by overemphasizing the Holy Spirit. Within a short time ministers were warning their congregations to stay away from the Azusa Street Mission. Some called the police and tried to get the building shut down. 

By 1913, the revival at Azusa Street had lost momentum, and by 1915 most of the media attention and crowds had left. Seymour remained there with his wife, Jennie, for the rest of their lives as pastors of the small African American congregation, though he often made short trips to help establish other smaller revivals later in life. After Seymour died of a heart attack on September 28, 1922, Jennie led the church until 1931, when the congregation lost the building. The building was torn down and replaced by what became the Japanese-American Cultural and Community Center in Los Angeles after it was lost to foreclosure in 1938.
