Don't know about you, but I sure needed His reminder today.

Charles Sims, Pastor
Away from home on a mission trip, very homesick--I'll never forget it. Then a card arrived from Charles, containing a Scripture notation (Heb. 13:5, Amplified Bible), reminding me again of the timeliness, comfort and power of God's Word.
"...for God Himself has said, I will not in any way fail you nor give you up nor leave you without support. I will not, I will not, I will not in any degree leave you helpless nor forsake you! Assuredly not!"
I kept reading (v.6): "So we take comfort and are encouraged and confidently and boldly say, The Lord is my Helper: I will not be seized with alarm [I will not fear or dread or be terrified]. What can man do to me?"
Wonderful words of life, blessed assurance.--Betty Sims.

Just Let Me

~With permission, I am posting a dream given to a family member and Brother in Christ, Dave Hiemstra. His wife, Kathy, sent it out yesterday. I pray your heart is encouraged in this. This really says it all....nothing to add.

I just wanted to share a dream that Dave had the other night. It was right after we had prayed and he was asking God to give us dreams and visions. Dave always said that he never dreamed at night but when he does dream, he has fantastic God-given dreams. (Me, I always dream but they usually have to do with what I saw or read before I fall asleep. Mostly they are just nonsense!)

In his dream, many of us were walking down a country road where the sky was huge above us and there were large hills on the landscape. He said gigantic figures began to form in the sky, one at a time and they were people. He said when the first one appeared, those on the road began to say “Look it’s John” or “No, it is Peter”. The figure would swoop over us a few times and we were fearful as it was so large and then it woould go down behind the hill and as we approached the hill, everyone was fearful, but the figure appeared up over the hill and had a loving and welcoming smile - Nothing to be fearful of.

Next Dave said a gigantic angel appeared in the sky and swooped over us and was so glittery and sparkly. It had gigantic wings. These figures would leave huge vapor trails and the whole world could see them. Next Jesus appeared in the sky in the same fashion. As He swooped by you could see two little girls in the trail of his vapor with their heads laid back and just enjoying riding in the wake of His passing. Dave said everyone started running after Jesus and wanting to join the little girls, everyone crying out to Jesus to carry them also.

Dave said he started to be lifted up in the wake but then began to doubt that it was real and felt himself hitting the ground. He said “Jesus, I want you to lift me like the others” and Jesus said, “Just let me!”, and then Dave was lifted and riding (floating) with the others behind Jesus. He said there was such joy and happiness and even a smell of what he described as mint all around. He said when he woke up he could still smell the fragrance and wanted to wake me up and ask me if I smelled it too. He said he just could not describe the beauty and splendor of it all.

I think what really stood out to Dave was that Jesus said “Just let me!” This spoke to us both about how we struggle and fight against all our thoughts and fears and Jesus is there just waiting for us to let go and let Him!

Storm Dreams, Earthquakes and Warfare!

~For those of you following this blog, you know that the Lord gave me two dreams - only a month apart - about an approaching storm of unimaginable magnitude in the Spring of this year.
~I have just completed listening to the prophetic Word of the Lord preached through Pastor John Kilpatrick and what the Lord gave him to tell The Church for 2009 and beyond. I believe it to be straight from the Holy Spirit. Please contact me if you'd like a copy. The Lord gave Pastor John the Word: R-E-S-U-R-R-E-C-T-I-O-N and the meaning of each letter of the word: RESURRECTION. The thumbnail of God's Word is this:
R: Rescue - God's going to RESCUE us this year.
E: Extreme - God will use extreme measures to rescue us.
S: Signs - There will be signs in the heavens.
U: Usher - God will send His angels to usher in what He's promised.
R: Recover/Recovery - God will make sure that recover/regain and be restored to normal and better: mind, body, spirit. "They shall lay hands on the sick and they SHALL recover."
R: Russia - Keep a wary eye on Russia. There will be suddenly involving Russia. Pray for our President.
E: EARTHQUAKE - SEE LINK. This involves the New Madrid fault line which extends from Missouri northward to Chicago.
C: Candlestick - Churches. God is not going to tolerate anymore evil in His Church. We will see churches being brought down, but other churches/candlesticks being raised.
T: Time - Time is quickly running out. The Gentile age is coming to an end.
I: Israel/Jerusalem
O: Overthrow: "I AM about to overthrow cities and evil." God is about to overthrow cities on rulers.

~Church, this is not a call for alarm, but of preparation. Remember, that if God be for us, who can be against us. I tell you by the Holy Spirit, that God IS a God of mercy, but He also brings correction and judgment, for He is a just God. He is a God of Justice. He gives all of us time to repent for the Kingdom of God is at hand! But there comes a time, if we continue in our rebellion and stiff-necked position, after God's multiple attempts to bring repentance and we repeatedly refuse, that He WILL bring His judgment upon that which is vile in His mouth and to His heart. Remember how Jesus turned over the tables of the money changers in the House of God? And what did He say, "My Father's House SHALL BE A HOUSE OF PRAYER, but you have made it a den of thieves." (Matt. 21:13)

~Church, as I was reading another "spiritual email" this morning...the Holy Spirit sternly stated, "THIS IS NOT A GAME!" This is not about forwarding emails about God and Jesus...It is about what we do and say. It is about living what we profess to believe! Anyone can punch a button and forward an email! Even the heathen do that!

~Church, there is an anguish in the heart of God for His People! (See post re: David Wilkerson - and if you can't find it, please email me.)

~Sorry if this seems a bit scattered today....but we need to know that we ARE in a spiritual battle...and God IS sovereign....and He WILL fulfill what He has said....and we do not rule God, but HE IS RULER OVER ALL! Are we truly serious and sincere about our walk with the Lord, or do we view our salvation as just an easy ride to heaven when it's over? Jesus came to destroy the works of the enemy...and that is the power in which He's called us to walk.

2 Chronicles 7:14-16 "If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land. Now My eyes will be open and My ears attentive to prayer made in this place. For now I have chosen and sanctified this house, that My name may be there forever; and My eyes and My heart will be there perpetually."

May he who has ears to hear, hear what the Spirit is saying.

Welcome ~

The purpose of this blog is to encourage our walk in Christ; together in Him; for as we develop our relationship with the Lord, we ARE more than conquerors through Christ Jesus! Praise God! My writings are mostly from an experiential standpoint; however sometimes this includes dreams and visions. (Comments are reviewed prior to posting.)
