Many impressions came this morning one after another, as I laid in bed before meeting my “golden day,” learning of Him and beholding His glory- … the same divine day you greet as yours. We say: “This is the day that the Lord has made and we shall be glad in it!” (Psalm 118: 24) and we’re glad because HE’s in it… always with us, always loving us, always working on our behalf and always giving us His wisdom, understanding, grace and mercy through many different ways.
Today He (the Truth) came to me through impressions with a snowfall covering the earth in its white splendor as the first given to me. Next, I saw myself dressed in sackcloth- a one piece garment that covered me from the top of my head down to the floor. I was told that its material had my tears in it. Following that came an impression of a tunnel whirling out of my eye that went far out into the distance. My activated tunnel vision could see a glorious, white WONDER-land which I knew to be my destiny, even the destiny of all of God’s chosen people.
What came last was the word “Improvement” in both spoken and in letter form. With a mighty arm, the Lord struck it in a swift backhand motion that hurled it away. So WHAT does this mean, eh?
#1: We are being reminded through the first impression of snow falling on the earth that forgiveness for His EARTHen vessels is continually coming and making us clean. “Though our sins be red as scarlet, they shall be white as snow!” (Isaiah 1: 18)
#2. The vision of me covered with the sackcloth material of ONE piece is a picture of the WHOLENESS that is to be ours through FULL repentance: With much tribulation (with many, many tears) we will enter the kingdom of God which is within being peace, joy and righteousness in the Holy Ghost. Note that it is “by the Holy Ghost”, not by self-improvement that this WONDERful state of being comes and make no mistake about it: Repentance is a way of life because His ways and thoughts are not our ways; We have to be continually changing our minds. For those who believe that because Jesus died once and for all for our sins that there’s no need to repent now, take a good look at Revelation 3: 19: “As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and REPENT!” This is a word spoken here to the church, not to unbelievers.
#3: The last impression that came shows our Lord with a rebuke in picture form giving a backhand hard slap to the belief that we can improve ourselves. We CAN’T! It’s either God living through us or self;… It’s not a matter of improvement, but one of exchange.
Yesterday, I heard the word “Shabbat!”, then “tested, tested“ and I immediately remembered that the Word of the Lord tested Joseph before he came into the WONDERland of God restoring EVERYTHING! I sure have been tested (whew!) and I know you have been, too. God let me know that I’m coming through and will obtain the promise… that everyone who is faithful that endures their hard testings to the end will be a wonder-light to the world and a joy to the Lord.
In the Book of Jasher, XLVI: 19, it is recorded that Joseph had to remain in prison an extra two years because he looked to man to help him instead of resting and trusting God. What a price Joseph had to pay which reveals to us how much God hates our leaning on the flesh and our attempts to do for ourselves what He has sworn to do for us,
What then shall we do to do the works of God? Jesus said: “This is the work of God, that you believe in him whom he has sent.” John 6: 29… We are to come into “the rest” (Shabbat)… We are “to let go” of all our self improvement efforts and be like the centurion who believed that ONLY the spoken word of Christ could do the wonder.
So WHAT are you speaking? Do you know that YOU are called to be a wonder living in the domain of WONDER-land?
What can I say now, but: “LET THERE BE LIGHT…. even YOU fully manifested as the light of the world‼️”
I’m so thankful my friend that God has called you to this ministry and that you are sharing your life and walk and experiences. They are and will continue to change lives by drawing us closer to our Savior. You are much loved!!!!
I am so blessed by your words Amanda. I thank God for the great gift of love you are to me.
