"The Starry Night Experience With Jesus"
I went to bed really late because I couldn't sleep, and as I laid down on the bed, I immediately felt the Presence of the Lord:
Then I see in the vision: I am sitting on a hillside at night looking at the stars which seem so bright. Jesus is sitting next to me with his hands around his knees looking at the stars too. He is smiling and looking intently at each one. I follow His gaze and look at them. He says to me, "Do you know what stars those are?" I said, "No Lord, I don't know. I never learned to tell the stars and constellations from each other in school." He said, "I know each of them by name. I placed each of them in their spot in the heavens. Every one of them are held there by My Word. When I created them, I gave them their boundaries. I am in control of the heavens and the earth. Not one star moves from it's place without My knowledge. As the effects of sin has ravaged the earth and the people on it, so are the heavens also being moved in their places. Sin affects everything, and you must always defeat it's temptations daily in order to stay in My Will. When you are in My Will, nothing can move you."
He looked at Me and smiled. I knew there was more, but I waited. He did not say anything for awhile. I continued to watch the stars. He turned back to Me and said, "Don't ever doubt Me." I was shocked, and a little taken aback by His bluntness, but I also knew He was right. I did struggle some days with thoughts of doubt and insecurity at times. I swallowed and my heart was grieved at this. I said, "I am truly sorry Lord. I know you are right. I get caught up in the daily things and I get frustrated. I am truly sorry. Help me to be constant like the stars we are looking at." I looked up and said, "I want to be unmovable like them." The Lord looked at Me and nodded. "Yes," He said, "It is good to want to be stable and fixed like them, but that is not the best. I want you to be fixed and firmly rooted to Me. You can see the stars and trust in them, for you see them, and you know they will always be there. But greater is the one who can fully trust in Me, even though he does not see Me, and can remain stable and fixed on Me, just because He believes in Me alone, and knows that I am there, even when they cannot see Me. You know this. My Word tells you this. It is time for you to be this. It is time for each of My People to fully believe. I do not want you to ever doubt Me again."
"I want you to believe in Me with all of your heart. I want you to trust in Me even if you cannot see. I want you to be so secure in Me that nothing can remove you from your place. You must cleave to Me totally, especially in your thoughts. It is time for My People to believe and not doubt. I hold everything in this world and in the heavens in My Hand, and everything is upheld by My Word. Would I not also uphold you?" I nodded, "Yes, Lord." He said, "Good. You must remember this, and know that as the days ahead pass many things in the earth and also in the heavens will change. Some of the stars will change their course and fear will come to many hearts. Things on the earth will change and be contrary to it's natural order but that is also part of the process of sin that has brought a degrading of the natural order through the effects of sin and also of man's manipulation of creation. But I want you to know that I am in control of all things and will allow these things to awaken the earth from it's slumber. I will start with waking up My sleeping My Church. Many changes will come. But My Church will not be shaken or moved by these things. No, on the contrary, for I shall speak to My People, and those who hear My voice will be fixed firmly during all phases of the coming changes, and they will be a great strength and benefit to the inhabitants of the earth."
"It is time for My Church to shine like My stars above. It is time for My Church to arise with the knowledge of Me and to reveal that knowledge to humanity. How can humanity know Me if My People don't shine? How can they see an overcoming church if she struggles with doubts and fears? My Church must rise up new and put on Christ, as My Word tells you. I am more than enough for you. I am in perfect control and I do not fear in any situation. I am not moved by the storms of life or by evil. It is time that you are not moved by these things either. Build yourself up in your most holy faith and feed upon Me. Your faith and trust in Me is not something that ebbs and wanes like the tides. No, it is a Rock rooted within your every being. It is Me. Let go of your fear, and trust in Me, especially in your thoughts, for this is where your struggles lie. I am not rooted in your mind, I am rooted in your heart. You are to take every thought captive and bring it to total submission to Me. This will be your source of peace and stability. I want My People walking with Me from their spirits and not from their thoughts. You serve Me with your spirit, for you are a spirit. This is where you are fixed."
Jesus then stood up. I stood up too, and turned to see what He was looking at. He was looking up at the stars again. He then began to turn around in a circle with his head still looking up. He turned around a few more times, and He then stopped and looked downwards again and then at Me. he said to me, "When I turned around, did any of the stars move? Did anything change at all?" I said, "No Lord." He said to me, "When you move outside of My will, it is only you that moves. I don't ever leave My Will for you. My Plans for you don't change, just because you do. I remain fixed in My Purposes for you. But I can't do them for you in your life if you aren't fixed firmly in Me. When you move contrary to Me, even in your thoughts, you move out of the place where I can speak clearly to you and give you wisdom. You struggle because you have left Me, you turned your focus away from Me. I never moved. I want you to see that it is vitally important for you to remain firmly fixed in your thoughts, in your actions, and in your heart. I am able to speak to you when you are listening for Me. I can guide you safely and effectively when you are not trying to work things our for yourself. I want you to be still and know that I am God. I am at work in your life, and I will bring you to completion, just as I am at work in the earth, and will bring everything that I have written for her to completion too."
"I am moving in the earth and in the heavens, and what I do will reveal to the earth who I am. Men don't want to know who I am. They close their minds and hearts to any mention of Me. But that is about to change drastically, for I am going to shake the earth and the heavens more and the men upon the earth will not be able to shut Me out, nor deny that I am. For all shall see that I am God and that I hold their lives in My hands. I am going to bring forth such a display that even My Church will finally fear Me reverently. It is time for true deep seated faith to be born in the hearts of men. It is time for sincere faith to be demonstrated in My Church again. I want true devotion and sincere love being displayed again. So, I am going to increase My Winds and change will be multiplied across the globe. I am awakening the hearts of men. I am looking for faith in the earth. What will I find as I move My Hand? I tell you truly, I will find a Church that does truly in Me, stand!"
Jesus then raised His hand high and pointed at the stars. He said, "These are like the generations of men. I showed them to My sons long ago. They gave everything to find them. They forsook all to reach out towards their call. They learned to trust in Me in their journeys also, as you do in this current day. Nothing shall pass away of My Word, even as you see the stars still in the sky. My Word and My Creation will remain till all is completed, as My Word says, but much will also be changed. You must fix your faith firmly in Me and never doubt My Hand concerning you. I will keep My Word concerning you. You must keep My Word too. Never let it depart from you. Stir up your spirit each day to draw closer to Me and you shall never waver nor continue to struggle with insecurity again. You shall shine radiantly with Me, as you allow My Hand to be seen clearly through you in all that you do. This is My desire, that you would reach higher, even into the stars."
I said, "Lord, I would love to reach to the stars." He smiled broadly and reached out and picked me up bodily and literally threw Me up into the air, and when He did this, I literally went hurling up into the sky further and further until I could not see the place where we both were standing anymore. All of a sudden I stopped flying upwards and stopped right where I was. I did not fall back to the earth. I just hung there in the sky, pinned there by an unseen hand. Then, I felt this rushing sensation inside of me. It felt like bubbling. I began to laugh, and I felt such joy that I broke out laughing out loud in the sky. I felt so alive as I laughed that I never wanted to come down. I felt like bursting, the joy was so rich and full. I felt full of light, then it dawned on me that I was shining with His Joy! I laughed even more!
Then just as suddenly I was back by His side on the mountain. He was enjoying my little trip as much as I did, I thought. He smiled at me, knowing my thought, and His eyes twinkled, and He said, "Even your experience just now was controlled by Me. I held you in the sky and filled you even more with Myself till you overflowed. This is My desire, that you would walk with me like this upon the earth everyday, totally full of Me and also controlled by Me. In this way you will find true joy and liberty. You will see even more, and increase in your ability to see as I see, and you will be able to walk through the earth without wavering in any season, and you surely will shine with Me. My Church is also going to awaken to this reality, for I am going to stir her mightily. As the signs of the heavens and the earth advances and changes, so also shall My Church also advance and change. She will ascend to her highest place and she will faithfully run her earthly race, and the world will see My Face."
Nehemiah 9:6 “Blessed be your glorious name, and may it be exalted above all blessing and praise. 6 You alone are the LORD. You made the heavens, even the highest heavens, and all their starry host, the earth and all that is on it, the seas and all that is in them. You give life to everything, and the multitudes of heaven worship you.

Daniel 12:2 And many of those who sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt. 3 And those who are wise shall shine like the brightness of the sky above; and those who turn many to righteousness, like the stars forever and ever. 4 But you, Daniel, shut up the words and seal the book, until the time of the end. Many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall increase."
Job 15:11 Are God's consolations [as we have interpreted them to you] too trivial for you? Is there any secret thing (any bosom sin) which you have not given up? [Or] were we too gentle [in our first speech] toward you to be effective? 12 Why does your heart carry you away [why allow yourself to be controlled by feeling]? And why do your eyes flash [in anger or contempt], 13 That you turn your spirit against God and let [such] words [as you have spoken] go out of your mouth?
