Lift Up Your Heads

Lift Up Your Heads 

And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.(words of Y’shua/Jesus) [Lk 21:28]

Why O Why?
This may well be a lengthy post.  In fact, it is more than likely that it will have to be read in more than one session (unless you have some spare time on your hands). Be that as it may, my sincere prayer is that it will edify and cement hope for us all to remain steadfast and obedient in the faith and love (which would take reading it through to the end), and may our Lord Y’shua/Jesus be glorified.  It is no new revelation, but it is one worth repeating.  Reading onward, when happening upon news reports, a thought may present itself that asks, “How is this good news?”  The answer lies in the opening and in the closing statements.

With all the global news reports filling our ears and the calamitous images constantly coming before our eyes, as well as images of moral decline and evil uprising, there is a dangerous potential to cause many to be filled with fear and/or to lose hope. 

Even dreams, visions and prophetic words can leave one feeling utterly undone, confused, fearful or worse, or they do nothing to bring people to repentance – to their cross, or to put your focus on Christ and His soon-return.

All the prophecies in the Bible were to bring people to repentance, to pronounce judgment, to exhort or to rebuke, to encourage/strengthen (edify), reestablish hope in our Creator, and/or to forespeak of things to come.

Strange Fire
In Leviticus, chapter ten, two men named Nadab and Abihu offered “strange fire” upon the altar. “Strange” in Hebrew means ‘unauthorized, foreign, or profane’.  Not only did they ignore protocol, but they showed contempt or neglect for the absolute, sheer holiness of God and the charge to obey/honour Him with reverent fear.
When Moses and Aaron offered up a sacrifice upon the altar, the fire that consumed it was the holy and sacred fire of God, coming from His glory.  Nadab and Abihu too made an offering, but it was strange fire that the lit, each with their censor. Therefore, the fire that burnt the offering was not God’s holy fire. It was profane, a counterfeit, false and they had received no command of the Lord to do so.

And Nadab and Abihu, the sons of Aaron, took either of them his censor, and put fire therein, and put incense thereon, and offered strange fire before the LORD, which He commanded them not. [Lev 10:1]
People can be in the “right” place, saying what appears to be the “right” thing and doing what appears as the “right” thing, but God sees and knows all. It is written: Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth that shall he also reap. [Gal 6:7]  Most people think that verse has to do with giving money, or strictly about what they are giving/doing to or for others. 

But as I have often shared in past times, we are best to read the entire chapter to keep things within context, and perhaps even the chapters before and after. The translators for King James broke the text up into chapters and verses to benefit the reader, as well as for easy reference.  As a result countless people have taken scripture out of context to suit themselves, to twist the Word or to promote a false doctrine (teaching).

We are told to try (test) every spirit to see if it is of God.  There are times we may fail to do this, which brings in the danger of deception, which acts as a catalyst for fear, unbelief and confusion, not to mention discord (strife, debate, disagreement etc), thus breaking unity within the Body of Christ. 

Counterfeit

We are warned that Satan can appear as an angel of light and that his ministers can appear as ministers of righteousness.  The verse before speaks of false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ; whose end shall be according to their works.  [2Cor 4:13-15].
It is no secret that there has been an infiltration of counterfeit “believers”, those wearing masks as it were (wolves in sheep’s clothing), witchcraft, false teachers/prophets/apostles amongst the brethren, much like the ‘sleeper cells’ hidden (covert) within the North American continent.  All over the earth, the false blends in with the true; the wheat amidst the tares; the counterfeit is incognito amongst the real.

And that because of false brethren unawares brought in, who came in privily to spy out our liberty which we have in Christ Jesus, that they might bring us into bondage: [Gal 2:4]

“You shall know them by their fruit”, and sometimes fruition takes its sweet time to appear. Yet what of those who tithe, have many ‘good works’, speak about Jesus (Y’shua), know the word, say the right things, show great miracles (signs and wonders)?  How do they do it without being detected?  How can we tell?

The Lord Jesus (Y’shua) warned us: For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.  [Mat 24:24]

We have to know the Word; we have to read it and get it down into our hearts (where no government or man can steal it).  We have to have a personal relationship with the Lord and spend time with Him. It is written that we need the Holy Spirit indwelling in us, for it is He who will guide us into all truth, not speaking of Himself but whatever He shall hear, that is what He will speak and show us things to come.  [Eph 4:14]

This subject can be greatly expounded upon, but that is not my intent or purpose in this writing. What I am speaking of rather is the late hour we are in and how each and every one of us must be on guard, fully dependent on the Lord, completely surrendered and not thinking that we have all the answers because none of us do.

Only four short verses above the part that teaches about not being deceived and that God is not mocked, and about reaping and sowing, it is written:
For if a man think himself to be something, when he is nothing, he deceiveth himself. [Gal 6:3]

We cannot depend on our own wisdom or discernment that we have from our life experiences or simply from what we have learned. These things most definitely aid us, please understand that.  However, if we were to be wholly dependent upon our lessons and experience, then Y’shua (Jesus) would not have had to speak such sobering words to those listening (recorded in Matthew 24 – in particular, verse 24), about “if it were possible, even the very elect will be deceived.” Sobering words, indeed!

Those who know the Word of God can see how late the hour is that we are in. Great tribulation is nigh upon us, but so is the coming of our Lord and Saviour, the Christ Jesus, the Messiah from Nazareth in Galilee.  That is what this message is about – it is a message of hope and that hope is Y’shua, Jesus the Christ (Messiah). 

The good news is the gospel, that preaches the Saviour and all that He accomplished with His death on the cross; the way back to God through Him alone; the washing of our sins in His own blood; the forgiveness of sins, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus (Y’shua).

In whom we have redemption through His blood, even the forgiveness of sins: [Col 1:14] This is “good news”!

Clash of the Kingdoms
We all secretly wish that none of the horrors spoken of in the Bible for the end times would happen, but they must. God cannot lie, but in His grace and mercy He forewarns us (we also pray that in judgment, He remembers mercy); then He begins (and began) the process of preparing us – not only for the end times, but to be all that we were called to be for such a time as this. 

Many times I have pondered “why” it has to be so ugly and horrific in the end. The surest answer to me is rather simplistic, almost child-like, perhaps seen as foolishness to some or weakness to others.

Eloquent speech and the profound wisdom of scholars and theologians may escape me, but my heart’s yearning is to exemplify Christ, for Him to be seen and exalted, and that I walk humbly, operating in the love of Christ (for God is love), and to bring forth good fruit that will be well-pleasing to the Vinedresser.
To my understanding (whether limited or sufficient), the “why” things must get so ugly and horrific is because of the sins of mankind, combined with the workings of the adversary, Satan and the fallen angels, his legions of demons, and his minions.

Just as Y’shua/Jesus forewarned, sin has escalated (increased) and continues to multiply, love waxing cold and those who stand for truth appears to be something that is becoming rarer.  About five or six years ago (in Ringgold, GA, in 2010/early 2011), the Lord spoke to me about the “clash of the kingdoms”…I have made mention of this ‘clash’ sporadically over the years on social platforms, in writings and on radio.

The Father’s ways are indescribable, untouchable and multifaceted, yet all that He does is done decently and in order. He is not the author of confusion – that is the work of the adversary and the enemies of the cross! For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all the churches [ekklesia] of the saints. [1Cor14:33]

His patience with us is unsurpassable and His discipline and correction, ruled by His love, is perfect for each individual.  Peace I leave with you, My peace I give unto you: not as the world gives, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. [Jn 14:27 – Y’shua/Jesus]

Division
The clash of the kingdoms pertains to the clash within the Body of Christ. There is a clash amongst denominations (which should not exist), causing division and confusion in the Body; a clash between the false (counterfeit) and the true, bringing false peace to some or causing disunity amongst multitudes.

God has drawn a dividing line, separating the holy from the profane; the clean from the unclean. He is dividing sheep from “sheep” and yes, we know He shall divide the sheep from the goats.

We also know that war in the heavenlies is taking place and o what a war indeed! Satan and his lead angels (highest ranking) fight the holy angels in the second heaven. Revelation speaks of the time he and his unholy crew will be removed from there as well.  Satan and his armies also war against the Body of believers, particularly the “holy remnant”.  He seeks to grieve the Creator by coming against all of mankind upon the earth.  Evil people who serve Satan carry out his orders.

Deep within my soul, I have oft pondered if the reason that we (mankind) must go through all that we have and do and must in days yet to come is so that there will never be another rebellion in the heavens again, for all of creation will finally know and be fully convinced of the consequences of sin and rebellion and the absolute and utter Sovereignty of Almighty God (Yhvh)!

I am leading up to sharing visions and dreams that I had, not only recently, but also excerpts of two dreams that occurred in 2006 and 2011 respectively.  You will see by certain statements made regarding my interpretation and understanding of what I dreamt back then affirms that I did not have full revelation or understanding of what the Lord was revealing to me. I leave it unrevised. We continue to learn and grow day by day, step by step, do we not? 
We share what we learn and know with others, and I for one earnestly look forward to learning from God’s people; learning from those likeminded, whose mind is stayed on Christ and the Word of God.

As others, I also long to fellowship and learn from those whose heart is to humbly serve the King in fulfilling the mission Jesus gave us; whose goal is to labour earnestly for the great harvest, and lastly, but definitely not least, who are preparing and are diligently/steadfastly watching and praying for the return of the Bridegroom.  Maranatha!

Unity in Diversity

We all have different gifts.  The plumber has need of the mechanic, the mechanic has need of plumber and an electrician, and they all have need of a doctor and on it goes.  Paul said it best in 1Cor.12:12-23, when he speaks of the body having many members and their need of one another. I believe the Lord reveals this to all of us at just the right time, with faithful reminders given to us by His sweet and Holy Spirit, through His living Word and through other members of the Body.

Years ago, the Lord made it very clear to me how each member of the Body of Christ is crucially important, and how He designed, orchestrated and purposed it that way, all as one body, moving and operating harmoniously, in unity.  An article was written by me in 2011 titled, “It Is Not about Competition; It’s About Unity”.
When He taught me the importance of each part of the Body, many moons ago now, He also emphasized the importance of praying for one another. I have often repeated these things in my writings, by His leading. Yes, it is clearly spoken of in His Word, but Jesus promised to send the Comforter, who would teach us and lead us all things, with reminding.

But the Comforter, which is the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.

But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceeds from the Father, He shall testify of Me:  [Jn 14:26; Jn 15:26]

Therefore, in all humility and in awe of the wonder of our Creator, I shall proceed, beginning with a recent open vision, followed by a short dream that same night.  Bear with me please, as it will all make sense at the end of this article.

Call unto Me and I will answer thee, and show you great and mighty things which you know not. [Jer 33:3]

An Open Vision

On Monday, March 16, 2015 (just hours before I found out my friend Bo had passed away), I had to go out to run some errands.  Only minutes after leaving, I glanced upward and my eyes were immediately drawn to a cloud formation. It is well understood by me that believers and unbelievers alike have often seen images in the clouds, smoke, rock formations and many other objects.

It is called pareidolia, which is defined as: “psychology – the tendency to perceive a specific, often meaningful, image in a random or ambiguous visual pattern; scientific – the the human ability to see shapes or make pictures out of randomness.”  (Pamela Ferdinand, Washington Post, June 2003)

Yes, the phenomena is well understood.  Regardless, I believe that it was an open vision, the meaning of which shall come to fruition in God’s timing and in the way that only He can do.  

For whatever reason, I glanced quickly toward the sky and noted sparse, scattered clouds. Without any effort, I immediately saw a horse.  At first, it appeared gray, but changed quickly to white.  The Book of Revelation came to mind.

Yet no sooner had I thought of Revelation than the cloud seemed to split and two heads of horses appeared, yet as if on one body.  As I observed, it seemed that the head of one horse was pointed downward, similar to a horse that is snorting and pawing the ground. It appeared to be snorting ‘fire’.  The other ‘horse head’ was pointed upwardly, as one might expect from a horse that is rearing up on his back legs.

Below is a picture that I found on the internet, which was painted by a German artist named Jan Künster, whose horse paintings are famous on a global scale. The vision did not portray the great detailing that the artwork reveals, but the positioning of the heads is eerily nearly identical.  It caused me to gasp at the likeness. (He ever leads us in all things if we allow Him to.)
                              As soon as I recognized two heads upon one body, my mind immediately recalled an article I wrote in 2011 about a dream, titled: The Two-Headed Dragon.

The Four Horsemen of Apocalypse
This picture was in the Whetung Ojibwa Center on the Curve Lake reservation in Peterborough Ontario County. The one I saw in 2007 was a replica, painted by the same artist. The original hangs in the White House in the United States. Interesting, yes? 
And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts saying, Come and see.  And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer.  
[Rev 6:1, 2]
Credit for the following paragraphs – Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Four_Horsemen_of_the_Apocalypse
Based on the above passage, the most common translation into English, the white rider is generally referred to as ‘Conquest’.  The name could also be construed as "Victory," per the translation found in the Jerusalem Bible (the Greek words are derived from the verb νικάω, to conquer or vanquish). He carries a bow, and wears a victor's crown.  Some theologians have called the rider “Pestilence”.
(Further down in the same article): The rider has also been called "Pestilence", particularly in pop culture. Under this interpretation, the first horseman is called Pestilence, and is associated with infectious disease and plague. It appears at least as early as 1916, when it is mentioned in the Jewish Encyclopedia. The interpretation is common in popular culture references to the Four Horsemen.
The origin of the interpretation is unclear. Some translations of the Bible mention “plague” (e.g. the NIV) or "pestilence" (e.g. the RSV) in connection with the riders in the passage following the introduction of the fourth rider; cf. "They were given power over a fourth of the earth to kill by sword, famine, plague, and by the wild beasts of the earth." (Revelation 6:7-8 NASB).
However, it is a matter of debate as to whether this passage refers to the fourth rider, or to the four riders as a whole.  Vicente Biasco  Ibáñez, in his 1916 novel The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse (filmed in 1921 and in 1962), provides an early example of this interpretation, writing "The horseman on the white horse was clad in a showy and barbarous attire. [...] While his horse continued galloping, he was bending his bow in order to spread pestilence abroad. At his back swung the brass quiver filled with poisoned arrows, containing the germs of all diseases.
Disease has always been a problem since the fall of mankind, but it is increasing and becoming more diverse. Below are a couple of examples of “pestilences”.  Was the open vision pointing out how close we are to its appearance, as Revelation prophesied, or does it warn of a dangerous, strong (as horses) infectious disease?
Or does it speak of a “Conquest”, ones sent forth to “conquer and vanquish”, breathing fire (weaponry?).  Does it speak of coming war on this side of the globe?
EV-D68
The viral culprit tied to at least some of the cases, enterovirus D68 or EV-D68, belongs to the same family as the polio virus.
In most cases EV-D68 resembles a common cold, according to the CDC. Mild symptoms include fever, runny nose, sneezing and cough. People with more severe cases may suffer from wheezing or difficulty breathing.
This disease effects children and is particular serious for those who suffer with asthma.
Colorado was hit hard by EV-D68, the report authors say in background notes. In August and September, Children's Hospital Colorado experienced a 36 percent increase in ER visits involving respiratory symptoms and a 77 percent increase in admissions for respiratory illness, compared to 2012 and 2013.
During that same time frame, the hospital also began to see children come in with mysterious limb weakness and paralysis. A review of cases between August and October revealed 12 children, averaging 11.5 years of age, who had suffered these symptoms.

Ebola (affecting every age)

United States
A number of people who contracted Ebola virus disease while working in the affected areas have been medically evacuated to the United States for treatment; most recovered, but one has died. On 17 November 2014 Dr. Martin Salia, evacuated from Sierra Leone to the US, died of the Ebola virus, aged 44 years.  
On 12 March, a U.S. health worker was diagnosed positive in Sierra Leone, and was therefore medically evacuated to Bethesda, Maryland. The individual was said to be in serious condition, which was changed to critical, and 10 or more Americans were evacuated from Sierra Leone to the U.S. due to exposure.  (End quote)
According to the Wikipedia article, the countries that have received medically evacuated personnel are: France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Switzerland, United Kingdom and the United States.  Senegal, Nigeria, Spain, United States and Mali have apparently successfully contained the virus.
Community Awareness
I am sure that many of us read reports that Ebola was often contracted by people who handled “bushmeat” (wild animals hunted for food), according to the CDC. Another way of contracting the disease is through the handling of relatives or friends who had died of the illness.
It struck me as noteworthy that out of all the quotes that could have been taken from religious leaders, the writer of the Wikipedia article only quoted the words of one religious cleric (his statement is below in emboldened letters). 
In November, WHO released a protocol for safe and dignified burial of people who die from Ebola virus disease which encourages inclusion of family and clergy, giving specific instructions for Muslim and Christian burials. In the 21 January 2015 WHO road map update it was reported that 100% of districts in Sierra Leone and 71% of districts in Guinea have a list of key religious leaders who promote safe and dignified burials. 
Speaking on 27 January 2015, Guinea's Grand Imam, the country's highest cleric, gave a very strong message saying, "There is nothing in the Koran that says you must wash, kiss or hold your dead loved ones," and he called on citizens to do more to stop the virus by practicing safer burying rituals that do not compromise tradition.
Source (for in-depth report, statistics and charts): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ebola_virus_epidemic_in_West_Africa
The emboldened letters is my emphasis. The article also mentions countries of the world who have prepared to receive those who have been stricken by the disease. Ontario, Canada is one of the places quoted, but other provinces are not mentioned.
Ebola Testing in BC
When I went by ambulance January 1, 2015 to the local hospital here in British Columbia, the two paramedics had a brief waiting period in a hallway with me, near the ambulatory admitting station. One of the attendants was speaking with the dispatcher.
Approximately thirty-five feet away was a double doorway that had been cordoned off with thick white, floor-to-ceiling drapes and yellow tape with black lettering.  Out of curiosity and having only been back in Canada for a little over three months, I asked the other paramedic that stood by me if there had been any Ebola reported in B.C.
One reason I asked was because of a conversation in a phone call placed to the office of the Immigration and Border Patrol in Canada before I left the state of Georgia.  When asked about the likelihood of Ebola in Canada, the agent responded that there had been a report of a man quarantined in Ontario, who had just come back from Africa. It is likely that conversation that prompted my curious question to the paramedic in the hospital corridor.
Patricia Gordon with baby who tested positive for Ebola - Red Cross
He quickly responded that there was a case of a nurse who was isolated for the virus.  Nonchalantly, he pointed to the cordoned off area, stating that was the isolation area.  I said that there were conflicting media reports regarding contamination, with some reporting that it is airborne, whilst the majority denied the statement.
The paramedic very calmly, but matter-of-factly replied, “We know it’s airborne.”  That was the end of the conversation, as I was then wheeled into the Ambulatory Care section.  Admittedly, I was surprised and briefly uncomfortable being so close to the area of isolation, as I had come to the hospital already with bacterial pneumonia and surely did not want to add a viral infection on top of it, especially Ebola.  I do believe that the Lord quickly gave me peace about it, but I was still curious.  There was a desire to get a second witness to validate the statement that the paramedic made.
Within an hour, I was taken for X-rays and ultra-sound. I asked the technician about Ebola being in the hospital, to which she curtly replied, “There is no Ebola in B.C.”  Her tone dissuaded me from discussing it further, but I wondered why one health care worker (paramedic) would admit to an Ebola concern and another worker (lab technician) would deny the possibility. 
It turns out that both were right.  There had been a nurse that worked in West Africa who had taken precautionary measures upon her return by checking into the hospital for testing when she came down with cold/flu-like symptoms.  She was put under quarantine (isolated).
It was early morning on January 1 (2015) when I was taken by ambulance to the hospital. The nurse practitioner had apparently been released later that same day, according to news reports.
Understanding
We know that biological (germ) warfare is one form of warfare going on, as is chemical and bio-weather (geoengineering/weather modification) warfare.  How long it has been is anyone’s guess, except perhaps for those ‘in the know’.  Genetically modified organisms (GMO), chemtrails, deadly plagues such as Ebola, mad cow disease, various flues (swine, bird et al) are all part of warfare. It is not new but “new” things are being introduced and old ones resurrected, such as the “measles” outbreak in 2014 (644 cases spread over 27 states, as reported by the CDC).
Does the horse vision pertain to “pestilence”?  I had a short dream within a night or two after I saw the horses, which had to do with an infectious disease. It was so brief.
In the dream I saw diapers floating in a toilet, filled with a horrid discharge and I heard a man’s voice saying, “I can’t get rid of the infection.”  He sounded pained and desperate. To me, it was a very odd dream, as I have not had time to follow any news as of late. The little that I do know is from those who have sent some information to me in emails, which I have only been able to skim over.
So, since some theologians believe the white horse means “pestilence” and some believe it means “conquest”, what does the vision combined with the dream mean?
Further Pondering
I remembered a vision in 2011, which I posted.
May 7, 2011 [05.07.2011] – [10:37 Am]
Approaching Horses - The Spirit March
“This will be direct and to the point.  I was sitting outside, looking at smoke that was billowing from the outdoor fire pit.  As the smoke blasted forth, I could see charging teams of horses as the smoke furrowed and bellowed and you could see the horses most clearly.  As soon as the mind acknowledges the vision, it ends.

Understanding, coupled with wisdom, is granted to any who ask in faith.  This same vision has a second witness, and even a third, who also saw the teams of horses charging forth in rhythm.    The message is understood, to he who has an ear to hear what the holy Spirit is saying:  The horses have been sent forth!  The remnant is being gathered: Armies gathering!  Seek the King now for direction! Horses are sent forth!  Armies gathering!  The Spirit March!

Great calamities are coming upon the lands.  Prepare now!   And I will gather the remnant of my flock out of all countries where I have driven them, and will bring them again to their folds; and they shall be fruitful and increase  [Jer 23:3]

I understood.  I understood, the GLORY to Yhvh-God alone!  The watchman has a courageous duty - to overcome fear with perfect love because perfect love casts out (all) fear.  The prophets have a bold duty; to speak forth the words that the Lord puts in their mouths, for it for His glory alone, but for the sake of  His holy Son's name, Jesus (Y'shua) ... for the sake of the people.

There is going to be an attack on America! Fast approaching! Horses are sent forth!  Armies gathering!  The Spirit March! Great calamities are coming upon the lands. Prepare now, by getting alone with the King, the Commander-in-Chief, the Great Spirit Chief.  He is the Head and wisdom will be in his orders for us!  Is there any number of His armies? and upon whom does not His light arise? (Job 23:3)

As a sister in Christ, I urge the Body of Christ to seek the King now for direction.  We are told to receive His love, for it will cast out fear.  For fear has torment; if we have fear then we have not been made perfect in love.  There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear: because fear has torment. He that fears is not made perfect in love.  [1Jn4:18]

For the indignation of the LORD is upon all nations, and His fury upon all their armies: He has utterly destroyed them, he has delivered them to the slaughter.  [Is 34:2]”

[Original post stopped here]
A year and five months later (2012), Hurricane Sandy occurred, killing 233 people in eight countries.  In the United States, the Red Cross reported 174 deaths, with the majority being in New York and New Jersey, followed by Philadelphia, West Virginia, Connecticut and Maryland.
Then, approximately two months later, the Sandy Hook shootings hit the news.  About four months later (April 2013), the Boston Marathon bombing happened.  Boston, with a population of one million was locked down under martial law, all because of one teenager and one young adult suspected of being responsible for the bombing and who were being searched for.  One would think the government was searching for Rambo. 
Even more astounding was the fact that the entire city came out to applaud the military, swat teams and every other agency involved in enforcing martial law and why?  It is because the Boston bombing was reported as being another “attack on America” by radical extremists/terrorists
Severe drought began in 2012 that began with a heat wave that broke records, combined with decreased snow falls, covering a good portion of the United States, central and eastern Canada and parts of Mexico.  The drought continues in California (from 2012-2015), with reports stating that farmers in that state do not plan to plant this year. 
Water levels have plummeted dramatically. Prices for many crops have greatly increased, with many predicting food shortages and possible famine.  Many cattle farms have shut down and beef prices have been affected as a result.
When I saw the two heads of horses on one body, another dream came to remembrance.  I shall repost it here:
The Two-Headed Dragon
August 18, 2011 [08.18.2011] - 8:04 AM 
A few years ago, I had a strange dream.  It troubled me, but I did not understand it.  I shared it with all who would listen, but most thought it was a dream of 'busy-ness' or just a 'weird dream'; however, in my experience with the Lord, any dream that is  from Him can be recalled (in detail) as though I had 'just dreamt it'.  Even now, years later (5 years later), I can recall it in detail and can see it just as I had that night.

Although I was fairly 'newly committed' to the Lord (about 5 years...the dream was in 2006), I felt it was from the Lord, but I could find no one who understood or even believed it for that matter, so I put it on the shelf... remembering it from time to time, bringing it up, having it quashed by others and yet again, storing it away in my memory files.

Please Understand
Whenever I have a dream from the Lord or a vision, people often ask, 'When?'  I must stipulate again, despite the naysayers, the Lord never gives me dates.  He either says, 'Soon' or 'Pray' or has me fast.  I have also had people tell me to 'pray for America' (I am not American, but I am in the country at this time.)
[Note* - “at this time” was in 2011, when I was still in the United States, specifically Georgia. Also note – re: “soon” – on the Lord’s “time” frame could mean months/years; “pray” – how many times has prayer delayed, reversed or stopped things? Think Moses, Elijah et al and lastly, “fast” – always with prayer. BP 2015
I have said, 'The Lord is not telling me to pray for America.  It is under judgment, but He DOES tell me to pray for the people and to urge all (including His OWN people) to repent and draw nigh unto Him; to ABIDE and to walk holy and obedient.”  Then I usually hear 'holier-than-thou' comments or some other form of negative resistance or denial.
(Note* - Since the time of the article being written, I have prayed for America (and countless nations), but at that time, I was to pray for the people. Undoubtedly, the Lord had/has other intercessors praying for the country. I also believe that the entire world is under judgment and that judgment began quite some time ago in the Lord’s house (amongst believers), as it is written. BP 2015)
The Bride
Please know that the Lord searched my own heart and there were things that I, myself, needed to repent of.  He will have a 'holy' people.  So many believe that they are 'the remnant', but are we unwilling to pay the cost?  Please hear the Lord in this hour; we must keep a repentant heart.  We must take the beam out of our own eyes; we must hear what the Holy Spirit is telling us.  He will have a holy people; the King will have a holy Bride.  The Body of Christ must be without spot or blemish... and sadly, we are not ready.
[Note* - It has been three years and seven months after the above writing. Over that course of time, I have learned and understand that not all of the Body of Christ is the Bride. Remember the wedding guests in the parables? Remember the five foolish virgins parable? The guests and foolish virgins were believers.
I do not pretend ever to know it all, but quickly point out that I (as others) am forever learning and shall continue to.  One thing I do know for sure is that none of us can accomplish the purifying and preparation on our own. Only Yhvh (God) can ever make us worthy enough for His precious Son, Y’shua/Jesus, but we do have a responsibility to make ourselves ready – the Bride makes herself (mentally, physically and spiritually).  I remain reachable and teachable! BP 2015]

We are about out of time and I will continue to give forth warnings.  Yet, along with the warnings and the call to repentance, I always express that the HOPE and ANSWER is to turn back to the Creator, through His precious Son, Y'shua (Jesus) the Christ and Savior.  He IS our hope and the ONLY WAY back to the Almighty God (Yhvh Elohim).  Period!

He has showed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth (does) the Lord require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy and to walk humbly with thy God? [Micah 6:8]

The Dream
Beware the Two-Headed Dragon
There were two men dressed in military garb. They walked abreast (side by side); their faces were without expression, almost robotic.  (To me, this means that they were without emotion; without compassion; without feeling.  They were merely 'doing their duty'.)
[Note* - Again, I learned more since then. Is it possible that the robotic men exemplify the words of Y’shua/Jesus, who warned in Matthew 24 v.12 that “because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold”? 
Hearts hardened by sin, immorality, wickedness of every sort, corruption, treachery, bitterness, hatred, unforgiveness, distrust, falsehoods and false teachers/prophets, evil kings and princes (leaders), religious zealots (like the Pharisees) etc are becoming more evident in the societies of the world.
Would hardened hearts not exude (manifest) faces without expression, without emotion, without compassion/feelings? Do robots not walk around like those who have eyes but cannot see and ears, but cannot hear what the Spirit of God is revealing, void of love, understanding or compassion?
Also, militant – there are various militant groups globally (how many plunder, kill, destroy?); even amongst believers there are groups in the physical (a whole other topic. Nevertheless, spiritually, we are in war…we have been issued armour and weapons of warfare that affirms that truth, though many think the warfare is another member’s “calling”, which is Satan’s lie (another topic under the subject of warfare, but if you doubt, begin in the Word with Ephesians 6). Something to consider…BP 2015]

Each one had a leash in their hands that went up to the collar that was around a two-headed dragon.  (No need to remind me that in Revelation, it speaks about a seven-headed dragon.  I am well aware; but dreams often have symbolic images.  John wrote Revelation after he experienced an open vision.)

These 'robotic' militants were restraining the two-headed dragon.  The dragon was furious, breathing fire.  There was another who walked alongside the dragon, but his feet did not touch the ground.  I could only see the feet and part of the legs because this “person” was completely engulfed in a 'fire cloud'. 
The men and the dragon were going from the west to the east (they were travelling in an easterly direction).  The one covered or hidden behind the fire cloud continued to move alongside the dragon smoothly.  He did not touch the dragon, yet he remained by its side and moved along with it.
(End of dream)

Why Bring Up the Dream Now?

As I previously stated, I had put the dream on the back burner, or rather, stored it away and had forgotten it.  In prayer recently, the Lord brought it back to remembrance.  Oftentimes, the Lord's people have a dream or vision and do not fully understand it and other times, we do understand.

And I heard, but I understood not: then said I, O my Lord, what shall be the end of these things?  and he said, Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end.  Many shall be purified and made white, and tried, but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; the wise shall understand.  [Dan 12: 8-10]

So for a very long time, I have not understood this dream nor have other believers been able to interpret it.  Everything that the Lord does is done decently and in order.  He has many voices; many that He speaks through, so faithful and true is He.
For God speaks once, yea twice, but man perceiveth it not.  [Job 33:14]

The Lord has been warning (since before I was born) through His faithful servants about the end times.  True to His word, as He foretold, that in the last days, He would pour out His Spirit on all flesh, upon His servants and His handmaids and they shall prophesy; old men would dream dreams and young men would have visions [Joel 2: 28, 29: Acts 2: 17,18]

We have been warned repeatedly of God's judgment and yes, it began (some time ago) in the house of the Lord (amongst His own people), just as it is written.  Judgment has begun upon all nations; upon this earth.

To me, the key things in the dream were fire, controlled by men, fire cloud, going from west to east, the ability to strike two places simultaneously, dragon at first 'controlled', then unleashed...

War is coming to America (and it will spill over to Canada, America's close ally); yet America will first be brought to her knees and destruction, death, horror indescribable shall be upon the land.
The Lord has been having me fast and pray, off and on, for months now.  Back in May, I spoke and blogged about the “Approaching Horses – August 2011” (or see archives 2011 (08.18). 

[Note* - The link to Approaching Horses is dead, as the article was removed from the blog in 2014 before I left Georgia, in anticipation of transfer to the new website. BP 2015]
(Horses have always been a means of transportation, for the most part, particularly in the Bible.)  When the Lord revealed the 'approaching horses' to me and said they had been sent forth, I understood that the 'transportation' was set and ready to 'war upon America'.  The means to 'carry out and begin' war was planned, ready and about to 'go forth'.

Then, a few days ago [August 2011], the Lord had me re-post the Approaching Horses article, and I commented as led on the blog as well.  Today, the dream was brought back to my remembrance and now finally, after all these years, I have better understanding [Note* - Or do I? This is where other brethren come in. BP 2015]

The robotic men represent warriors (soldiers, military men) who will release the two-headed dragon, the dragon who breathes fire.  There will either be two strikes at once or one right after the other, several strikes as the dragon will be 'unleashed'.  How many more, I do not know; however, a two-headed dragon can strike two places simultaneously, yet continue on to further destruction, with either both heads striking at the same time, or one right after the other. 
Fire... the dragon brings forth 'fire'.  The 'militant' men will be methodical, without remorse or feeling, merely carrying out their reasonable service, their [expected] duty.

This represents bombs... fire, destruction.  Men are 'controlling' it.  I still do not have understanding of the one who walks alongside the dragon, hidden in a fire cloud, with the feet not touching the ground.  If anyone has further revelation on this, please feel free to email me and share, or you may leave a comment on this blog.  It would be greatly appreciated.
Time, Time, It’s Time

Once again, I urge you; please examine yourself to see if you are in the faith.  We must keep a repentant heart.  We must turn away from all that is not of God, all unrighteousness, all that is out of His will.  We must walk holy and obedient.  How can He direct our steps, if we simply will not obey. 
Shall we walk as children of disobedience and expect Him to turn a blind eye?  Shall we rebel against Him?  Woe to those who rebel, for rebellion is nigh unto witchcraft.  Woe to those who disobey, for if He angered at the children of Israel when they disobeyed, shall He overlook us if we willfully and continually disobey, especially since Y'shua (Jesus) paid the price for us?

Shall we trample upon the Blood of the precious Savior?  Take time, serious time to spend with the Lord and wait upon Him.  He is faithful and will show us where we must repent, if there is need of it.  He is worthy.  He is a good God and His mercy endures forever, yet He is also a God of justice and judgment.

We are almost out of time, people.  Please hear the warnings of not only myself, but many others.  Get into right standing before a holy King.  Now is the time!  If you are not awake, wake up!  If you are awake, RISE up!  It is time!
Selah

Testifying both to the Jews, and also to the Greeks, repentance toward God, and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ (Y'shua HaMashiach) [Acts 20:21]

Or despise you the riches of His goodness and forebearance,  and longsuffering; not knowing that the goodness of God leadeth thee to repentance?  [Rom2: 4]

The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some men count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.  [2 Pet 3:9]

For thou O Lord are good, and ready to forgive; and plenteous in mercy to all that call upon thee.  [Ps 86:5]
[End August 2011 post]
Understanding
Like as a father pitieth his children, so the LORD pitieth them that fear Him. For He knows our frame; He remembers that we are dust.  [Ps 103:14]
Back in 2011, under the blog ‘comment’ section, one brother in Christ felt that the “hidden one in the cloud of fire” was Satan. He asked who else is invisible and cloaks himself (paraphrased)? He also said that Satan controls evil men. Yet another brother suggested that the “two heads” represented “two nations”.  I had not considered that.  See what I mean about us having different giftings, and all of us needing each other?
Since then, I myself have wondered if the direction they walked was important, or that it was to indicate the “west” AND the “east”.  And what “two nations” represented the “heads” (most powerful?) of the fire-breathing dragon. (Of course, we understand who the ‘dragon’ is, but was it to typify a ‘beast’, evil as the dragon?
Who are the militants (hard-hearted) and how are they able to control and hold “back” the dragon?  OR is it possible that the One hidden in the fire is the LORD, who is Sovereign and Satan and/or his militants can “loose the destroyer” until the Sovereign God allows?
Is it a witness to the book of Revelation and the Lord is revealing how close the time is at hand, with evil armies, the dragon, the beast?  I can relate to Daniel – I do not understand fully.  Has the Lord given any reader interpretation? Would you be kind enough to share, perhaps email? 
This is the third time since I had the dream back in 2011 that it has been brought back to my remembrance. In obedience, I share this in articles. The rest, including understanding of the matter, is in the Lord’s hands. It is simply that I thought of the “two-headed dragon” when I saw the vision of the “two-headed horse”.  Does this again indicate “two nations”?
Is it representing two nations within one nation (West and East), such as the known fact that many Muslims from the East are in the White House, or in sleeper cells within both the U.S. and Canada?  Many questions, and all knowledge is God’s, and understanding is given to those He so chooses.  Or is it a warning, urging us to watch and pray, for the hour that was foretold long ago is nigh upon us, which should make us rejoice, knowing that indeed we should “lift up our heads, for our redemption draweth nigh”!
Hostilities between countries are escalating, with the most recent one being between U.S. (Obama) and Israel (Netanyahu).  Other enemies are getting bolder.
Jesus forewarned us and it is God alone who prepares us.  He is the One who gives dreams and visions, as well as prophecy.  Yet, what is the purpose of prophecy?  I believe ‘prayer’ is a key; taking all things to the Lord. He may or may not give us full understanding, at the time of our request or futuristically.  We may only have part and another part He gives to another, etc., and/or He may give the interpretation to others.
Yet to me, it is important to remember the absolute key, which is the fact that the spirit of prophecy is the testimony of Jesus Christ.
And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy. [Rev 19:10] 
Truth versus Deception
In these last days, dreams, visions and prophecies abound.  It is true, so very true that the Lord foretold us that in the last days He would pour out His Spirit upon all flesh; and servants and handmaidens would prophesy, old men would dream dreams and young men would see visions.  [Joel 2:28; Acts 2:17]
Yet He also warned us of ‘prophets’ who prophesy lies and prophesy false visions and divination, a thing of nought and deception of their hearts. There are those who will prophesy false dreams and cause the Lords people to fall into error because of their lies. [Jer 14:14; Jer 23:32]  God forbid that we are never in that group! We must earnestly pray that He stops us before He ever allows us to be an instrument in the enemy’s hands to bring deception or error.  God forbid!
The above scriptures (Jeremiah) do not speak only about people such as Nostradamus, Ed Cayce et al, but more about those who come in the name of the Lord, but prophesy things either with a spirit of divination (witchcraft) or from the deceit in their hearts (flesh and impure motives/agendas). Let God be the judge on such; He knows all things. None can fool Him, even if they do manage to deceive some people.
That the saying of Esaias the prophet might be fulfilled, which he spoke, Lord, who has believed our report? and to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed? [Jn 12:38]

(The words John recalled are recorded in Isaiah 53 when the (true) prophet Isaiah was prophesying about Y’shua/Jesus the Messiah that was to come, what He would suffer and what He would accomplish with His obedient suffering and sacrifice.)
I do believe that the Lord gives people personal dreams, visions and prophecies, which are between Him and the individual (such as Joseph, son of Jacob), as well as sends warnings, such as with Joseph, Mary’s husband, in which God told him to leave because wicked Herod planned to kill children two years old and under). He is still the same, yesterday, today and forever.  [Heb 13:8]
The Lord can and has given dreams to unbelievers, such as Pharaoh who was greatly troubled by his dreams, as well as the dreams that the baker and the winebearer had, all of which Joseph interpreted).
The enemies of Israel had dreams.  Two Midianites were conversing and Gideon overheard them, interpreted the dreams as “the defeat of the Midianites and victory for Israel”. He gained new confidence when the Lord confirmed that which He had told Gideon.
Yhvh gives many people dreams/visions that are to be shared, as warnings, or as a call to prayer, as a call to repentance, edifying, encouraging  in times of distress or great trouble –whatever and whenever He so determines . My point is that He is God, who does as He pleases to accomplish His will – absolute supremacy and omnipotence. He still warns people and reveals things to come by any means that He so chooses.
But those things, which God before had shown by the mouth of all His prophets, that Christ should suffer, He has so fulfilled. Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord;
And He shall send Jesus Christ, which before was preached unto you: Whom the heaven must receive until the times of restitution of all things, which God has spoken by the mouth of all His holy prophets since the world began.  [Acts 3:18, 19]
It does not mean that we cannot be deceived if we are lovers of truth because all of us can be and all of us have been at some point in time. 
But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived. For we ourselves also were sometimes foolish, disobedient, deceived, serving divers lusts and pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful, and hating one another.  [2Tim 3:13; Titus 3:3]
Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness, and receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls. But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.  [Jam 1:21, 22]
All a man’s ways seem innocent to him, but motives are weighed by the LORD.  There is a way that seems right to a man, but in the end it leads to death. [Pro 16:2; 16:25]

For I know nothing by myself; yet am I not hereby justified: but He that judges me is the Lord.
Therefore judge nothing before the time, until the Lord come, who both will bring to light the hidden things of darkness, and will make manifest the counsels of the hearts: and then shall every man have praise of God. [1Cor 4:4, 5]

If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridles not his tongue, but deceives his own heart, this man's religion is vain. Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.  [Jam 1:25, 26]

There is so much guidance and help contained in the Word of God. We must search our hearts, yes, and ask the LORD to search also, due to our ‘natural’ tendency to overlook or justify things within.  Let us be patient as God does His perfect work within us. Our part is to cooperate by surrendering it all, repenting when necessary and forgiving, yes, even ourselves for things now past.  Great is the love of our Maker!
Therefore once again I echo God’s Word, in that it is the Holy Spirit that will lead us. I also believe that we are to pray over dreams and visions. The Lord will reveal to us if He sent a dream or vision or not. Let us fear God [Rev 14:7] and seek first the kingdom of God, so that all these things may be added unto us. [Mat 6:33]
I have also spoken by the prophets, and I have multiplied visions, and used similitudes, by the ministry of the prophets.  [Hos 12:10]
This is an excellent scripture to help us when corrupt or impure thoughts bombard us, and casting them down becomes a war in itself, as the world and the enemies of the cross besiege our minds.
Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.  [Phil 4:8]
Fair Warning
Now the reader may be tempted to not read the scriptures that are given, or to merely skim over them at a glance.  However, given the abundance of dreams, visions and prophecies that are escalating in these days, it is crucial that we line everything up with the Word of God.
Although I have known for a long time to take everything to the Lord in prayer, I have also come to learn that just as we teach children according to their age and ability, so does our Creator teach us according to our maturity in and knowledge of Him. He does not expect a new convert to be where a mature son is, any more than we would expect a newborn to understand, act or be as a five year old is.
As He showed me some years back, He will never give all answers to one person, least we become like the adversary, puffed up with pride and exalting ourselves above others.  God forbid!
Flee Idolatry 
Son of man, these men have set up their idols in their heart, and put the stumblingblock of their iniquity before their face: should I be enquired of at all by them?
Therefore speak unto them, and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Every man of the house of Israel that sets up his idols in his heart, and puts the stumblingblock of his iniquity before his face, and comes to the prophet; I the LORD will answer him that comes according to the multitude of his idols;  [Ezek 14:4]  (emphasis mine)

 In 2 Thessalonians, chapter 2, it speaks about the coming of the Wicked one, and also about those who did not have the love of the truth and for that cause, God shall send them strong delusion that they should believe a lie. [v.11]

We must know the Word of God (hunger and thirst for righteousness); cleave to the Lord and love truth. 

Whereunto He called you by our gospel, to the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.  Therefore, brethren, stand fast, and hold the traditions which ye have been taught, whether by word, or our epistle.

Now our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God, even our Father, which has loved us, and has given us everlasting consolation and good hope through grace,  Comfort your hearts, and stablish you in every good word and work.  [2 Thes 2:14-17]
 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.  [Mat 24:11-14]

For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.  Behold, I have told you before.  (words of Y’shua/Jesus) [Mat 24:24, 25]

And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth and the life no man comes unto the Father, but by Me. [Jn 8:32; Jn 14:6]

That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God; Strengthened with all might, according to His glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness;

Giving thanks unto the Father, which has made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light:Who has delivered us from the power of darkness, and has translated us into the kingdom of His dear Son: In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins: [Col 1:11, 12]

And to make sure that we truly understand His will and purpose, the Lord speaks once, yea twice…

To the praise of the glory of His grace, wherein He has made us accepted in the beloved.  In whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace; Wherein He has abounded toward us in all wisdom and prudence; Having made known unto us the mystery of His will, according to His good pleasure which He has purposed in Himself:  [Eph 1:6-9]

Therefore, brethren, stand fast, and hold the traditions which ye have been taught, whether by word, or our epistle. Now our Lord Jesus Christ Himself, and God, even our Father, which has loved us, and has given us everlasting consolation and good hope through grace, Comfort your hearts, and stablish you in every good word and work.  [2Thes 2:15-17]

Perhaps, if we are honest, all of us at times have misheard the Lord, if we have been walking with Him long enough. We must guard ourselves against preconceived ideas, if we truly desire to be in the Lord’s will. Ofttimes many believe that their life must be filled with suffering to keep them humble, or to avoid riches (thanks to the extremes of the prosperity teachers).

Some believe that all rich people are doomed to hell, yet God abundantly gave earthly riches to many of His people. What we are taught though is to shun idolatry and not to put anyone or anything first, except God…balance, always.

Some feel God could not possibly love them, or that He is forever mindful of their past sins. Yet He declares throughout His Word the depth of His love, and also that sins that are repented of are forgiven through the blood of Christ [Eph 1:7; Mat 26:28], but also that He casts our sins into the depths of the sea. [Mic 7:19]

Ahh, there are times that I think it would be easier climb Mount Everest than it is to write an article. So much can be covered, but I will add this. We must come to the place of accepting His perfect love; to lay down things of the past (including preconceived notions/ideas); to accept His forgiveness when we genuinely repent; to humble ourselves and acknowledge our need and complete dependence on Him. We must love His Word, and hunger and thirst after righteousness, ever-desiring to be holy as He is holy.

Despise Not Prophesyings

We must believe and come to understand that He holds our future in His hands and knows what is best for us…release ALL into His hands and wait upon Him for guidance.  We must fear the Lord (reverence and awe of His Sovereignty and power), but not be afraid of Him.  Remember, He is love, longsuffering, full of mercy and grace, as well as judgment and justice.

Consider the cost of discipleship; be willing to obey; be willing to let all go in order to be in His perfect will. Remember our wisdom pales aside His; our wisdom is as foolishness to Him. The Word of God guides us; the Holy Spirit teaches and directs us.  Great is His love for us.  He is the answer to all of our searching. 

In His time and in ways that are His alone, He reveals things to us.  Seek Him always, whilst He can be found.  Cleave to the Vine and bring forth good fruit.  Endure the pruning, the purging, the refining, the molding and the ways He prepares us for that which is His will and for that which is to come.

 Quench not the Spirit. Despise not prophesyings. Prove all things; hold fast that which is good. Abstain from all appearance of evil. 
And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. [1Thes 5:19-23]
]
In Conclusion

 It was over a week ago now that this was nearly ready to post, but hindrances began and delays resulted…and it was not as ready to post as I had originally thought.  Last week, I spoke to a sister in Christ about the next post being “Lift Up Your Heads”.  Yet, after a few days past and I had not quite finished the article (pictures, editing, polishing etc), during prayer, the Lord moved on me to unexpectedly post the “Blue Rose Letters”.

Therefore, I now present this much-delayed article for your consideration and discernment, and prayerfully, for your edification and blessing.  Tomorrow I will be reposting two pieces given a few years ago, which are indeed applicable to this day and hour. Only God knew, but God!

The pieces are called, “Fear Not the Coming Great Tribulation” and “Preparing the True Body of Christ”.  That itself should tell you that our King, our Creator, has indeed been preparing His people for some years now.  Bless the name of the Lord!

On a final note, three weeks have passed since I planned to begin the short series on “No Greater Love” – the message that is not new, but came together through the time (over four months) living in shelters for the homeless. 

So much blocked the fruition of it that I came to a point where I said to the Father that if He did not want me to speak on radio at all, to stop me Himself, to just let me know and I will obey.  But if He does want me to speak, then He must clear the way.  My sincere plea has been that I would not speak at all, unless He promised to speak through me…and I waited…

The link will follow sometime tomorrow, but tentatively the program will begin on Saturday, March 28 at 3:30 pm Pacific time.

Though I am completely unprepared, meaning I have not been able to sit and put together organized notes, I trust that the Lord will speak and that all that He would desire to be said will be said.  Let us keep looking up, knowing our Lord is fast approaching and that our redemption indeed, draws nigh.

To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that He might be glorified.  [Isa 61:3]

for His glory alone
