A-2 INSIGHT: HE SAW NO CORRUPTION (DECAY)….

January 28, 2017

Epiphany:

I love revelation knowledge: The light bulb turns on and you see something in the light that was once hidden in the darkness, or just something that you believe but remains a bit cloudy. Awesome! This revelation knowledge brings understanding. The Bible tells us “In all your getting, get understanding.” (Prov. 4:7, Prov. 16:16) My first almost 40 years in my Christian faith I asked constantly that God would give me understanding. And guess what? Revelation knowledge became a daily occurrence.  It wasn’t until He sent me out into the fray that I began to ask fervently for His wisdom.

OK…how do we get “revelation” of things we normally just take for granted or are satisfied that if God said it, it must be true? Receive His Holy Spirit. Bottom line. Before we have the Holy Spirit (Who guides us to all truth John 16:13) we read our Bibles and attempt to gain as much knowledge as we can from what we read. BUT when we invite The Holy Spirit to come into our lives and fill us with His amazing power and presence the lights begin to turn on, click, click, click and beyond knowledge, He gives us understanding (Luke 24:49, Acts 8:14-17). Revelation stirs and established our faith.

Now you know how I, and you, receive revelation knowledge….epiphany, insight; so now I can proceed to share with you my most recent revelation.

Each morning just after I awake I read one chapter of my Bible (NKJ version). I generally ask the Holy Spirit to reveal anything to me that I need greater understanding for, and every so often He shows me something that leaves me in awe for days and years. This morning I didn’t ask, but as I was reading my one chapter the light came on and I saw something I had not seen before. I was reading Acts chapter 13 (Acts 13:28-37), and suddenly “saw no corruption” leapt off the page and struck me between the eyes. THE LIGHT WENT ON! My mind suddenly leapt from scripture to scripture that I had read over the years….

Enoch ascended into heaven, not experiencing death at all (Gen 5:23-24) (After 365 years on this earth, Enoch earned a miraculous exit!); Elijah “went up” (2Kings 2:1-12)…thus the mocking of the children to Elisha “go up thou bald head, go up” (2Kings 2:23); Jesus raised many from the dead as He ministered, of course the most famous to us is Lazarus, all of whom eventually returned to the grave and their bodies decayed (they saw corruption). When Jesus rose from the dead 500 saw Him. God raised up Jesus from the dead and He continued fellowship with the disciples for 40 days until He ascended into Heaven (Acts 1:1-3). The many that came up out of their graves at His crucifixion (Matt 27:50-53) eventually died again and “saw corruption”. THE ONLY ONE THAT DIED, CAME BACK TO LIFE AND ASCENED INTO HEAVEN WITHOUT HIS BODY DECAYING OR “SEEING CORRUPITON” WAS JESUS! HE LEFT THIS EARTH IN TACT, WHOLE AND WITHOUT DECAY, EVEN AFTER DYING A MOST HORRIBLE DEATH FOR OUR SINS. ACTS 13 CONTINUES IN VERSE 38

Acts 13:38-39

38 I want you to know, my very dear friends that it is on account of this resurrected Jesus that the forgiveness of your sins can be promised. 39 He accomplishes, in those who believe, everything that the Law of Moses could never make good on. But everyone who believes in this raised-up Jesus is declared good and right and whole before God.

(from THE MESSAGE: The Bible in Contemporary Language © 2002 by Eugene H. Peterson. All rights reserved.)

Amen.

In order for Jesus to be Lord of the living and the dead it was essential that He must taste death. It is written also that He descended into Hell and took away the keys of death and Hell (Eph 4:9-10, Rev 1:18). Hell, by the way was created by God for Satan and his angels…NOT MAN! There are many accounts of those who have died and visited either Heaven or Hell. Heaven and Hell are destinations. The book 23 Minutes in Hell is quite a reading if you are up for it. Just a note: Jesus came from Heaven. If you are interested in more you might also read my epiphany regarding Rogue One. Amazing….

Read 1Cor Chapter 15.

POST SCRIPT:

And He’s coming back for His people!  Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha. Doesn’t that just make your heart leap with joy! Come, Lord Jesus, come! Rev 22:7, 12, 16-17, 20. Amen and amen.

E-1 INSIGHT: SUBSTANCE ABUSE 1

Hindsight tells me this all really began in 2001. My husband and I were privileged to host a series of hospitality dinners for our Church in hopes to stir up the pot, so to speak. No pun intended…. These dinners were designed to mix up a rapidly growing congregation of saints (reaching about 900) which had a need to become plugged in and connect with others merely on a social level over good food and lighthearted fellowship. One of these dinners made an indelible impression on my heart.

There were generally about 20 guests each month. A team of six of us prepared a formal, sumptuous, pampered, scratch prepared, five course dinner, pulling out all the stops. That is to say—we were considerably well off and in possession of all the good stuff such as restaurant grade foods with all the trimmings—you get the picture. I am not one to hoard. All the good stuff was given to us by God to bless others.  So that’s what we did with it—and continue to do so. Anyway, there was one dinner that stood out. Six guys from a rehab house showed up. I was quickly impressed by these clean-cut looking men, mostly in their mid-30s, as I recall.  They had a great time and mixed in with ease. Now please understand. This was the first experience I had had with up-close substance abuse—bottom line—drug addicts. I never considered that I would ever be entertaining drug addicts in my home.

These guys did not “look like” drug addicts to me. I was accustomed to seeing such people on the streets of east-end Vancouver, dishevelled, begging, or dropped against a building in a state of stupor. These men were, as I said, all clean-cut and apparently ordinary folk.

At the end of the dinner, while all the other dinner guests made their way about the living room and family room to continue the relaxed fellowship we became accustomed to witness, one man remained at the white, linen covered table. He was softly weeping. I stepped over and sat near him and asked if he was ok. He was one of the guys from rehab-mid-30s. He wiped his eyes and said, “Yes, thanks.” But the tears continued to flow, so I waited. He was looking down at the white linen tablecloth as he sobbed. He lifted his eyes from this thoughtful gaze and looked at me. “I just don’t understand why you would invite me to your home and make me welcome.” He wiped his eyes once more, now able to speak out what had brought him to tears. “No one has ever invited me to their home—ever….” I was speechless. His words gripped my heart, and I knew then that I would never see these souls the same again. It was a God moment. His compassion, mercy and grace flooded my heart for these men that He had placed in our home.. In hindsight—He was preparing us for something we did not understand then…but a time would come when we did understand….

D-1 PROPHECY: THE WRITER’S VISIONS AND DREAMS FROM GOD

A timeline for the following dreams and the vision was difficult to determine without reviewing my journals (1500 pages). I don’t recall recording the first dream in a journal, so my only recollection is that I knew it was not connected to or inspired by 9/11. I have removed several dreams as they are more a personal directive. The only reason I included Jesus on the Road is that it is directly pertinent to Alberta and the growing revival here.

  1. Dream of the plume
  2. ***Visions of the eagles
  3. Dream of Jesus on the road
  4. ***Dream of the multitude
  • Dream of the plume:

Circa 1999-2002

In a dream I stood in my back yard in White Rock, BC where friends had joined us for a barbeque. I turned to look south-east and saw a great plume rising from the far south-east. I knew that I was looking across the border to the east coast of America. I awoke. I knew when I awoke that the plume was nuclear. I knew this was not 9/11.

  • Visions of the Eagles:

Circa 2003 (Fasting and prayer)

In March of (circa) 2003 I attended a Todd Bentley conference in Mission, BC. During worship, I experienced two visions of eagles. (The first is not recorded here, as it is not relevant to this documentation.) Thus continue to second vision….

I continued to worship, experiencing a second download. I saw in a vision another Great Eagle. On the right wing of the Eagle was a woman. She had long, wavy blonde hair and was laying on the wing, clinging to its edge. They were moving swiftly above and between large clouds, heading from west to east. There was a very bright light in the far distance at the furthest edge of the clouds in the east. There was a clear image of an angel on the right of the Eagle, moving in unison. I had an impression that there was a second angel moving along side on the left. I asked the Lord, “Who is the woman?” He responded, “The woman is you.” I knew the Eagle was God.

Eagle and the Woman
Eagle and the Woman by Janice VanKronkhite

(This is very amazing. At the time of this vision my hair was short. I had no intention of allowing my hair to grow, nor did I know my hair would be wavy until it grew long. I never considered the hair until 2011 when I commissioned Janice Van Kronkhite (Met her at Pat King’s confer in Phoenix) to paint the vision for a book cover.) Another amazing thing about these visions. The message preached that session of the conference was based on the “eagle”! God is not a God of coincidence!

I had no idea what God was showing me above the clouds. I sensed the bright light in the far distance was the Lord’s return. The light was not the sun as it spread across the distant edge. And yet it was not that far away as we moved swiftly toward it. It was not until I was in Southern Alberta that I asked the Lord what was happening below the clouds. I knew that there was something pretty significant going on that He had not revealed.

  • Jesus on the road:

Perhaps 2004/5:

I dreamt that a crowd had gathered along both sides of a road. I realized that the people were waiting for something and I pressed to the front of the crowd. Then a man on a white horse appeared. He was dressed in white. I could see that it was Jesus. He was moving from east to west. As he passed by He turned and spoke to me, “Join the ranks.” I immediately stepped forward to join those marching behind Him. I knew it was an army and I knew I had been honored by the invitation. I felt joy. Then as I moved forward I looked down at myself and said, “I have lost my armour.” I awoke.

From that point I knew I was to pursue the full armour of God. This took some devoted study for a number of years. I knew the Lord would put me into His ranks when I was properly dressed.

Oddly, I knew the dream took place on a road just east of Calgary, Alberta, Canada. I had no intension at that time of moving to Alberta. Alberta was not in my mind in any way. I pondered this.

  • The multitude:
  • CANADAS JOURNEY TO CAPTIVITY
  • “Write down the dream, telling the main parts.” (Dan 7:1)
CCI20160309_0001-2

Feb 2014: First made public November 18, 2015

I dreamed I was standing in a very large, lush, grassy, open field. There was a man and a woman standing with me. I was facing north watching a great multitude of people of all nations slowly walking from west to east. Some were dressed in their native garb. One was carrying a small palm tree in a pot. Others were carrying banners (pennants) representing their nations. The land was chard and completely burnt. There were charred snags of trees left standing amongst the people as they walked. There was a clean division between where I stood with the man and woman in the green grassy area and the charred land where the people walked.

I said, “Oh, no.” (Meaning…”No way am I having anything to do with this.”) I turned and ran toward the south. There was a fence extending along the south border. The land on the other side was also grassy and lush. I knew that if I could get to the other side of that fence I was free. I would not have to deal with this people I saw. As I came near the fence a bull appeared from the east. It too was looking for a way to the other side of the fence. He could not find a way nor would he allow anyone else near the fence. It was trotting in my direction. I knew I could not make the fence in time and turned and ran back to where the man and woman were standing. I looked again at the multitude still moving slowly east. I knew the multitude included all people, Christians as well. I felt distress. I sensed I was supposed to do something for these people and I didn’t want to. But a sense of conviction pressed me to give in and I said, “I will go.”

To the east of the large, lush field stood a forest of green trees with a road running from south to north along the edge of the forest. The road also ran through a small cluster of green trees at the edge of the burned off area so that I could not see where these people were headed. I knew that if I could reach them…head them off before they went past the road, I would help them not continue heading in the direction they were heading. I knew that it was not hell they were heading into. I turned and ran as fast as I could run toward the road and to warn these people…. I awoke.

The Holy Spirit has since given me the interpretation of this dream. His instruction to me for now is to only tell the main parts. As He opens more of the revelation I see how this connects with the Great Eagle and the woman on the wing, and also the dream of Jesus on the road and Alberta’s revival. Please note: the spelling of “Canadas” is exactly how the Holy Spirit instructed me to record this. This will unfold as He reveals the full extent of the dream.

PS to the images. Scans are not the best method of documenting, I can see. The dream of the multitude illustration is a pen and ink and charcoal. It should come out clear. I will try a photograph image. Also the Multitude image is posted much shorter than its actual measurements.  It is an 11 X 17 image, so as it appears here it has lost the impact of the vastness of the dream.  For now it is published as is. I welcome your comments….

B-3 INSIGHT: WHY PRAY? 3 -STANDING IN THE GAP

SCRIPTURE REF FOR WHY PRAY 1 & 2

Including a poem by Alison Teed: HOPES AND DREAMS AND HIM

Judg 1:3

 …”Come up with me to my allotted territory, that we may fight against the Canaanites; and I will likewise go with you to your allotted territory.” NKJV

2 Sam 10:11-12

…”If the Syrians are too strong for me, then you shall help me; but if the people of Ammon are too strong for you, then I will come and help you. 12 Be of good courage, and let us be strong for our people and for the cities of our God. And may the Lord do what is good in His sight.” NKJV

Eccl 4:1, 9-12

1 Then I returned and considered all the oppression that is done under the sun:

And look! The tears of the oppressed,

But they have no comforter —

On the side of their oppressors there is power,

But they have no comforter.

9 Two are better than one,

Because they have a good reward for their labor.

10 For if they fall, one will lift up his companion.

But woe to him who is alone when he falls,

For he has no one to help him up.

11 Again, if two lie down together, they will keep warm;

But how can one be warm alone?

12 Though one may be overpowered by another, two can withstand him.

And a threefold cord is not quickly broken. NKJV

1Sam 23 David inquired; God said, David said, God said

2 Therefore David inquired of the Lord, saying….

4 And the Lord answered him and said….

10 Then David said, “O Lord God of Israel….

11 …And the Lord said….

12 …Then David saidAnd the Lord said, NKJV

A POEM BY ALISON TEED:

Hopes and Dreams and Him

Stirring, waking, turning,

Sensing His presence.

He waits patiently as

I come to full awareness.

We talk—me first, of many things:

The past, the present, the days to come;

The children, parents, friends, the world;

Hopes, fears, dreams of the future.

Intimacies every one.

He talks then:

Reassuring, promising faithfulness and caring;

Comforting, consoling.

I hear the birds begin to sing.

He’s listening to them.

Still time to rest before the dawn.

Rest on He whispers, rest on.

I move in close to him,

Nestled under the shelter of His mighty wing.

Content, secure, I close my eyes,

And sleep with thoughts of future plans,

And hopes and dreams and Him.

When once You are angry? NKJV

1 I cried out to God with my voice —

To God with my voice;

And He gave ear to me.

Surely I will remember Your wonders of old.

12 I will also meditate on all Your work,

And talk of Your deeds.

Who is so great a God as our God?

14 You are the God who does wonders;

You have declared Your strength among the peoples. NKJV

Psa 94:17-19 Hope

17 Unless the Lord had been my help,

Your comforts delight my soul. NKJV

Marvelous are Your works,

And that my soul knows very well.

15 My frame was not hidden from You,

When I was made in secret,

And skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.

16 Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed.

And in Your book they all were written,

The days fashioned for me,

When as yet there were none of them.

How great is the sum of them!

When I awake, I am still with You. NKJV

16 And His name, through faith in His name, has made this man strong, whom you see and know. Yes, the faith which comes through Him has given him this perfect soundness in the presence of you all. NKJV
