Hidden Manna For the End Times
David Eells – 7/23/23
Endure in Your Faith
Vanessa Weeks - December 2022 (David’s notes in red)
In a dream David and I were standing in a spacious and nice bathroom. We were cleaning different parts of the bathroom and David was cleaning the large, white bathtub. (Representing preparing cleansing for corruption and for sanctification.)
Then David was standing in the large bathtub fully dressed. He said to me, "You have to endure in your faith to receive healing for what you have not received." (This may also be spiritual healing.) (Healing is already accomplished and believers should stand in faith and believe they have received and speak what is theirs. 1Pe 2:24 who his own self bare our sins in his body upon the tree, that we, having died unto sins, might live unto righteousness; by whose stripes ye were healed. Mar 11:23-24 Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou taken up and cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that what he saith cometh to pass; he shall have it. 24 Therefore I say unto you, All things whatsoever ye pray and ask for, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.
After he said this, I saw to my right, an enclosed shower with glass doors. (This reminds me of 1Co 13:12 For now we see in a mirror, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know fully even as also I was fully known.) (Believers should cleanse themselves of all false doctrines of men that would keep them from health of mind and body. 2Co 7:1 Having therefore these promises, beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all defilement of flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.
I had been listening to "Receiving your Healing" from the UBM site when I had this dream.
I asked the Lord for a word about this and received by faith at random, Phi. 1:30. vs. 27-30 in context. Php 1:27 Only let your manner of life be worthy of the gospel of Christ: that, whether I come and see you or be absent, I may hear of your state, that ye stand fast in one spirit, with one soul striving for the faith of the gospel; 28 and in nothing affrighted by the adversaries: which is for them an evident token of perdition, but of your salvation, and that from God; 29 because to you it hath been granted in the behalf of Christ, not only to believe on him, but also to suffer in his behalf: 30 having the same conflict which ye saw in me, and now hear to be in me.
Our Rights in Christ
Isaac Payne 1/24/22 (David’s notes in red)
In this dream I was in third person viewing an oil tanker in the middle of the ocean. The oil tanker was far from land as I could only see the boundaries of water. (I believe the rough waters are the judgements that are here and are coming upon the world. Also, I think that this sea also represents the masses of people. (As they do in Revelations) Sort of a two-fold meaning of judgment upon the masses.) Gen 6:17 And, behold, I do bring the flood of the waters upon this earth, to destroy all flesh, wherein is the breadth of life, from under heaven; everything that is in earth shall die.
2Pe 3:5-7 For this they willfully forget, that there were heavens from of old, and an earth compacted out for water and amidst water, by the word of God; by which means the world that then was, being overflowed with water perished: but the heavens that now are, and the earth, by the same word have been stored up for fire, being reserved against the day of judgement and destruction of ungodly men.
The oil tanker resembled an old navy oil tanker from the World War II era. On this old oil tanker was a captain that was a burley fella. (Strength in the flesh will not save in the days to come but “righteousness delivereth from death”.) He was average sized, stocky, had a dark beard, and was wearing a seaman jacket with the hood over his head. This burley captain’s crew consisted of his mother and his wife. The wife and mother both had blonde hair.
They were fighting the waves and trying to obtain more oil. This oil tanker was equipped with a hose that ran deep into the ocean depths suctioning the oil into the tanker. (The tanker wasn’t a drilling rig, but it was collecting oil from the depths of the sea.) The burley captain did not have enough hose to reach the depths of the sea. The captain was only a few feet short of reaching this oil well. However, he performed a maneuver with the throttle of the oil tanker. He threw the throttle forward maxing forward speed then suddenly reversed the throttle in the opposite direction maxing the speed of the tanker in reverse. He was attempting to elevate the bow of the oil tanker and use the momentum while the bow was elevated and then reversing the throttle allowing the stern of the oil tanker to dip into the water a bit.
The point of this maneuver was to gain those few feet the hose could not reach in hopes of dipping the hose into the oil located at the depths of the sea and then suction the contents of oil into the tanker. (The works of man will not give results but faith in God will.)
Suddenly, the oil tanker flipped over. The captain overdid the maneuver and caused the oil tanker to flip belly up in the sea. The captain dipped the stern of the oil tanker too much into the water and the bow of the tanker flipped backwards.
Immediately at this point I was now in the dream but standing on the deck of our doublewide trailer. (A mobile tabernacle for the wilderness.) The trailer was elevated above the waters and had a center block foundation that reached from the depths of the sea and elevated the house quite high off the waters. The oil tanker was underneath my house and sinking. I watched the contents empty out of the oil tanker and float to the top of the water while being carried away with the waves. The contents were mainly plywood sheets. Isaiah 45:20 Assemble yourselves and come; draw near together, ye that are escaped of the nations: they have no knowledge that carry the wood of their graven image, and pray unto a god that cannot save. (The plywood represents the captain’s own self-works to suction the oil. The oil represents the anointing of the Holy Spirit, which is a gift from God Who gives us power and He does the work in us and for us.)
1Co 3:9-15 For we are God's fellow-workers: ye are God's husbandry, God's building. 10 According to the grace of God which was given unto me, as a wise masterbuilder I laid a foundation; and another buildeth thereon. But let each man take heed how he buildeth thereon. 11 For other foundation can no man lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ. 12 But if any man buildeth on the foundation gold, silver, costly stones, wood, hay, stubble;
13 each man's work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it is revealed in fire; and the fire itself shall prove each man's work of what sort it is. 14 If any man's work shall abide which he built thereon, he shall receive a reward. 15 If any man's work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as through fire.
The captain popped out of the water and swam to the deck of the house where I was standing on. He was frantic and worried about his wife and mother. Humbled and remorseful he said a prayer, “Oh Lord please help me find my family.” (I remember the captain was not wearing the hood over his head at this time.)(No longer shielded or resisting the Sun/Son.) After saying that prayer the burley captain looked down and said, “I wish I knew my rights with the Lord.” (This will be most important to save our families from the devastation coming on the world. Revelation shows a huge depopulation just ahead. Many have family members dying now because they put the Word last.)
Right after he said that I became super excited. It was like a light bulb went off and I knew the answer. I smacked him in the arm with a brotherly affection and stoked with excitement saying, “You have Rights in Christ! I know your rights in Christ!!!!” (A valuable person to know in the days ahead.)
I looked at the burley captain and told him to command his family to surface in Jesus’s name. The burley captain did just that, commanding in the name of Jesus that his family surface from the depths of the sea. Suddenly, the wife and mother came bolting out of the water as the tanker continued to sink. Mar 11:24 Therefore I say unto you, All things whatsoever ye pray and ask for, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them. James 1:6 But let him ask in faith, nothing doubting: for he that doubteth is like the surge of the sea driven by the wind and tossed.
The tanker was pulling all the debris within close proximity under the water as it was sinking. (All of man’s works will be destroyed.) However, the wife and mother were able to swim past the sinking tanker and come to safety at the deck of the double wide with the center block foundation that the burley captain and I were standing on. Isaiah 28:16 therefore thus saith the Lord Jehovah, Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner-stone of sure foundation: he that believeth shall not be in haste.
Matthew 7:24 Every one therefore that heareth these words of mine, and doeth them, shall be likened unto a wise man, who built his house upon the rock:
Then I woke up.
Family With God
Tianna Fire 5/29/23 (David’s notes in red)
I had a thought from the enemy about my physical family because they aren't following Jesus yet, and the thought was, “I haven't prayed for them recently or enough.” (Mat_6:7 And in praying use not vain repetitions, as the Gentiles do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking. Mar 11:24 Therefore I say unto you, All things whatsoever ye pray and ask for, believe that ye
I saw it was the enemy, and then I turned to the Father in Spirit, and I saw Him as if He was holding His hand out and as holding something. Then I saw my old physical family appear and He looked at me and said to me "They will be here, and they are already". I then saw Him move His hand all around Him and I saw all the UBM brethren’s physical families there. Not just children, but the whole extended family all standing there with Him. As He did this He said, "They will all be here and are already". (Because we believe we have received and this IS faith.)(I felt this meant all of our UBM brethren’s families are already with God in eternity [by our faith], and it will manifest in the physical.) (1Co 7:14 For the unbelieving husband is sanctified in the wife, and the unbelieving wife is sanctified in the brother: else were your children unclean; but now are they holy. )
Rom 8:29-30 For whom he foreknew, he also foreordained to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren: 30 and whom he foreordained, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified.
Eph 1:11-12 in whom also we were made a heritage, having been foreordained according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his will; 12 to the end that we should be unto the praise of his glory, we who had before hoped in Christ:
Joh 6:37-40 All that which the Father giveth me shall come unto me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out. 38 For I am come down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me.39 And this is the will of him that sent me, that of all that which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up at the last day. 40 For this is the will of my Father, that every one that beholdeth the Son, and believeth on him, should have eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day.
(We can just rest regarding our families, knowing they are in God’s Hands through our prayer of faith.)
Marie Kelton 5/1/23 (David’s notes in red)
During the night meeting, I had an open vision. The Lord was sitting next to me, and He tapped me on my shoulder to turn and look at something that He was going to show me. I guess I wasn't paying attention, because He tapped me on my shoulder a second time and pointed and told me to look. As I looked, I saw that I was in heaven and an angel was bringing me a wedding dress. The Lord then spoke to me and said, "This is yours, make sure you keep it." (The Bride has been given this wedding dress by faith and we need to keep it by enduring in our faith to the end.)
Rev 19:7-8 Let us rejoice and be exceeding glad, and let us give the glory unto him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready. 8 And it was given unto her that she should array herself in fine linen, bright and pure: for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints.
Rev 3:11 I come quickly: hold fast that which thou hast, that no one take thy crown.
Come As You Are
Samuel Fire 7/4/23 (David’s notes in red)
I heard in prayer and felt this is to encourage the Brethren to share their blessings and gifts with the Body, even if the gift or blessing seems small in the natural, but that sharing it, blesses all more than they know. God uses even tiny things for His Glory and can multiply infinitely to everyone.
“Bring what you have and give it to Me. The boy who had the bread and fishes that took with him to My sermon on the mount, what little he had and it benefited the entire group. What little you see, may be well enough or plenty more for yourself or your family, but to the whole body seems tiny and pale to help, if at all. By natural means it cannot, but bring it all before Me and I will distribute it perfectly, with plenty leftover. Mat 14:20 And all ate, and were filled: and they took up what remained over of the broken pieces, twelve baskets full.
Come to Me all of you. Bring who you are. (Don’t think you need to be someone else or have something you think is worthy to offer.)
Carry with you the things I blessed you with. (These are the qualities and uniqueness He made us.) Psa 139:15 My frame was not hidden from thee, When I was made in secret, And curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.
Don't be shy. Don't lag behind. Don't worry about it, even if you think you really need what you have now. (He wants us to jump up and eagerly run to Him, willingly giving all despite having a desperate need in the current moment.) (Luk 6:30 ASV Give to everyone that asketh thee; and of him that taketh away thy goods ask them not again. 31 And as ye would that men should do to you, do ye also to them likewise… 38 give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, shall they give into your bosom. For with what measure ye mete it shall be measured to you again. )
Come and be merry. Share it all as though the whole world desperately needs it. Bring it because I give you My all. (Considering the things you can share as something critically required by others. Sharing it with joy, knowing it will bless others better than self.) 2Co 9:6-12 But this I say, He that soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he that soweth bountifully shall reap also bountifully.
7 Let each man do according as he hath purposed in his heart: not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver. 8 And God is able to make all grace abound unto you; that ye, having always all sufficiency in everything, may abound unto every good work: 9 as it is written, He hath scattered abroad, he hath given to the poor; His righteousness abideth forever.
10 And he that supplieth seed to the sower and bread for food, shall supply and multiply your seed for sowing, and increase the fruits of your righteousness: 11 ye being enriched in everything unto all liberality, which worketh through us thanksgiving to God. 12 For the ministration of this service not only filleth up the measure of the wants of the saints, but aboundeth also through many thanksgivings unto God.
A sweet word, a song, a tiny portion of food, a memory, a smile. Life, when given entirely to Me, has infinite and eternal blessings to everyone.
You are immensely rewarded, and I can continue to do these things countless times.
Do not think or remember a moment that such is your doings. (Luk 17:10 ASV Even so ye also, when ye shall have done all the things that are commanded you, say, We are unprofitable servants; we have done that which it was our duty to do.)
When you give, it's complete. (Do not expect a transaction, let go and gift it without any further attachment.)
I then work with this, for only I can create life and recall that action with a Power source to spread and multiply, not even self could recreate it properly a second time.
So come and bring what you can. Sit with Me. Share and be merry, and receive the blessings I give abundantly.
Look at My river, it flows endlessly. Rev 22:1 And he showed me a river of water of life, bright as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb
Let it spring forth from within, pouring out to others. I Am the True Life, the Resurrection. Joh 11:25 Jesus said to her, I am the resurrection, and the life: who believeth unto me shall live, even if he die.
I have a want and reason to give everything overflowing. (He is Love Eternal – John 3:16-17), just come to Me as you are.
Bring to the table what you have, and we all can share together without any lack. (Normal dining experience is sharing all different plates, talking and sharing in discussion, eating together as one group.)
Holding it to self is buried and lifeless. Trying to grow on your own is like you adding extra height to stature.
Ask of Me, give to Me all. From problems to blessings, we can be one through it all. (You have not because you ask not. Luk 6:38 give, and it shall be given to you; good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, shall they give into your bosom. For with what measure ye measure it shall be measured to you again.)”
I then heard this is about the evil-one:
“Steer clear of the one who lurks near.
He will steal and kill, just for a thrill,
Destroying all that be, and can see.
His price cannot be bought, do not fall for it.
His lies, seem to tantalize,
Catching by surprise,
When you realize, what lies, behind the fear”.
Samuel Fire 7/3/23 (David’s notes in red)
I saw many different groups and types of animals, including the insects. I saw how many types would huddle together for various reasons. I saw penguins huddling and rotating the ones in the center to the outer edge to maintain warmth. I saw honeybees doing the same thing during the winter. I then saw a flock of sheep keeping the young lambs in the center to shelter from predators.
Each reason was to benefit them all. Some for warmth, others protection from predators. I saw how they were spiritually blessed with this knowledge to ensure survival. (We should always apply this technique for our UBM Brethren.) Stick together, don't wander off. No pride can keep from falling away. We listen to His instructions and loving guidance and we will make it together.
I asked for word by faith at random and landed on: ‘Comforted’, Eze 14:22 Yet, behold, therein shall be left a remnant that shall be carried forth, both sons and daughters: behold, they shall come forth unto you, and ye shall see their way and their doings; and ye shall be comforted concerning the evil that I have brought upon Jerusalem, even concerning all that I have brought upon it.
One Body in Christ
Anonymous 2/26/23 (David’s notes in red)
When a sister was praying on the Outreach Zoom for lost brethren in apostate Christianity, I saw the sister as a gold bright shining light praying, and then I saw some devils try to come up to her to interrupt or distract the prayer. (Witchcraft curses sent from the factious and witches to distract and stop our praying and interceding.) But I saw myself standing in front of the enemy with my back to it with my arms stretched out pushing them back behind me, so they couldn't get to the sister praying, like bodyguards do. But my arms could only reach so far to push them away from her, so the devils tried to get around another way. (1Pe 5:8 Be sober, be watchful: your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour, 9 whom withstand stedfast in your faith, …
Lev 26:8 And five of you shall chase a hundred, and a hundred of you shall chase ten thousand; and your enemies shall fall before you by the sword.
Deu 32:30 How should one chase a thousand, And two put ten thousand to flight, Except their Rock had sold them, And Jehovah had delivered them up?)
Then I saw our other brethren that were present, as gold bright shining lights, and they all came around the praying sister, with their arms stretched out wide to push the enemy back and to block the enemy from trying to hinder the prayer. Then all the brethren held hands in a circle around the sister, blocking out the enemy entirely because they came together in unity of faith, which defeated the enemy and all the darkness from hindering the prayers. (The Body coming together and using our authority in Christ, actively in offensive warfare against the factious, and witches. When we are all in complete unity with Jesus, there is nothing the enemy can do; he is bound.)
NENT Mat 18:18-20 Amen I say unto you, What things soever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven; and what things soever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. 19 Again, Amen, I say unto you, that if two of you shall agree on earth as touching anything they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father who is in the heavens. 20 For where two or three are gathered unto my name, there am I in their midst.)
Debbie Fenske 4/4/23
I would like to confess that I did not give something forth that I heard the Lord saying to me last night, It was toward the end of our worship time after a song that Barry continued with worshipful strumming on his guitar. After a minute or so, Barry’s strumming became more powerful. There was a strong anointing in it. And what kept coming to me, I felt was Father speaking it to me. When the time ended, I knew I had failed Him. I told Him I was sorry, last night. But my heart was not truly repentant.
Today, Father brought it back to me, strongly, with such conviction, and I truly repented before Him, and I ask my brothers and sisters forgiveness also. And, He let me know that it is still important to say today. There were not many words to the word He was saying, and, I know that doesn’t matter. Literally, it was one word, “Redeemed,” that came to me, three times. So, I was thinking it was not important enough, and so I did not speak. Had I opened my mouth, He would have spoken the rest, which He did speak to me today, as He was working on, and correcting my heart. Here is the powerful word the Lord spoke.
“Redeemed. Redeemed. Redeemed! My children, you are redeemed! So, rejoice in that I, your God and Savior, have redeemed you. You are Mine!”
Yes, Father! I truly thank you, with a heart full of thanksgiving and gratitude, that you have redeemed me from my sin, and I am yours. We praise you, our God and Savior, for your merciful and glorious plan of redemption. We love you Jesus. And we thank you with our very lives that you have redeemed us, and made us your own, individually, and corporately. Help us, Father, to give our praises and our thanksgiving unto you every day. Lord, you, our powerful God, deserves all the honor and glory. Amen!
I am reminded of Isaiah 43:1-7 But now thus saith Jehovah that created thee, O Jacob, and he that formed thee, O Israel: Fear not, for I have redeemed thee; I have called thee by thy name, thou art mine. 2 When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned, neither shall the flame kindle upon thee. 3 For I am Jehovah thy God, the Holy One of Israel, thy Savior; I have given Egypt as thy ransom, Ethiopia and Seba in thy stead. 4 Since thou hast been precious in my sight, and honorable, and I have loved thee; therefore will I give men in thy stead, and peoples instead of thy life.
5 Fear not; for I am with thee: I will bring thy seed from the east, and gather thee from the west; 6 I will say to the north, Give up; and to the south, Keep not back; bring my sons from far, and my daughters from the end of the earth; 7 every one that is called by my name, and whom I have created for my glory, whom I have formed, yea, whom I have made.
Barry: Thank you so much, Debbie, for your sensitive heart in this. I believe it was “You Have Redeemed My Soul”. We appreciate so much the gift of God in you that has so often blessed our body here!
All in All
Anonymous 4/25/23 (David’s notes in red)
I was in the half-awake half-asleep state, and I saw so clearly and so real how the Spirit of God is literally in everything, and through everything in the physical and spiritual and so clearly how He is behind every single vessel of honor and dishonor and only by His will can anything or anyone do anything. Only by His will can a vessel of dishonor do something, and only by His will could I be even allowed to know or understand this. I saw so clearly how there is nothing I can do except trust Him and hope and believe in His Grace and Promises and hope for Him to only let me be a vessel of honor. (Sovereign God.)
I had been wondering why the Lord had some of the enemy using someone to hurt me, and I saw how God was behind it and His ways are higher than mine and I can't even comprehend or truly understand His plans and the extent of His Grace and how everything He does is for my own good. I saw that I can't even judge anyone or anything for what they do or how they are because He is behind all of it, and when I judge something, anything, I am judging God. So, all I can do is think, speak, believe, be and live His Word.
I cannot criticize anything or anyone, not even physical things because that's how God created that specific thing to be and He wanted it that way, and me criticizing or thinking that thing or way would be better is criticizing God. (Rom 9:21-22 ASV Or hath not the potter a right over the clay, from the same lump to make one part a vessel unto honor, and another unto dishonor? 22 What if God, willing to show his wrath, and to make his power known, endured with much longsuffering vessels of wrath fitted unto destruction.)
Being ungrateful for literally anything is an offence to God, because He has blessed me with way more than I really need whether I see or understand it or not. I saw how literally every tiny and big thing is connected, physically and spiritually. Every tiny little detail, from the wind to the ant, to even the trash man, is God's perfectly created intrinsic or intricate design. And there is literally nothing I can do to change God or change His mind or plan, because everything is His will and great design. (Even when we change things through prayer; the change is His. He just ordained us to change it.)
This honestly gives me such great fear of God to know He is sovereign over all vessels, and He is sovereign over my mind, will, thoughts, life; and the only thing I can grab on to that I know, is real, true, eternal is Him, His Word, His Spirit and His Life, Jesus.
In this experience it literally felt like it was just God and I (Jesus in me) alone in all existence and everything is Him, in and through all and it is only Him now and forever and it's Him. Jesus in us that is real and eternal. It brings me much peace that He is and is behind everything.

I am not creative but I made a picture on paint that kind of looks like what I saw. I’m sorry, in the picture forgot to change it to "Jesus in me" not "me."
I was standing in the kitchen and all of a sudden, I saw the principality over the area I was in and he knew that I could see him and was aware of him.
I saw everything was darkness but I saw this light inside of me. The light in me looked small compared to all the darkness that was around me.
Then I saw this giant ray of light appear from above and the light in me was connected to this ray which led above to this giant light that was endless light.
The darkness then looked completely small compared to the giant endless light and although my light seemed small at first the light around me was actually bigger than I know because it is connected to this eternal light that is above, around, all around everywhere and is greater than the greatest darkness.
Vision of Heaven
Samuel Fire - 2019
A couple of months after I came to Christ, I heard a testimony of God showing Heaven to a person. I was intrigued and I also desired this. However, I doubted the Lord would talk to me or show me Heaven. That evening before sleep, I prayed and asked the Lord if He would show me Heaven as well. I got ready for sleep not thinking about it much more.
I lay in bed close to the sleep and dreaming state, I don’t know what this is called. Then I saw the most amazing and exhilarating vision ever. Something I hope that I never forget and sadly I confess at times it has escaped me, yet when I do remember; it has been so encouraging and uplifting, that I pray that each and every one would have this comfort and treasure too.
I was seeing as I was in the room laying down for sleep. From my own perspective, I saw around me as though no roof or ceiling was there anymore, and it was open to the sky. I saw a clear night sky but shining above all this was as if the sun was distant and brighter. I didn’t notice but I was being lifted up, gently. As with caring hands like a parent to a baby child. Slowly and gracefully, I rose up; closer to the bright light and I felt such peace and calm. All around me were clouds, white and clean and there was a wonderful sound like singing and music, but better than anything that is on earth. Perhaps this sound was like birds in the morning and a choir and symphony orchestra all in tune. How can I judge or know for sure – except that it was indeed the most beautiful ever.
As I looked around there were amazing buildings, constructed to dimensions I couldn’t understand. Very large and with smoothness and finishes too fine and precise, nothing could be finer. The walls were golden, but almost transparent and glowing or shining at the same time. There were colors that I have never seen and don’t think are in the earthly. Though I never saw any other being or angels or anything other than these amazing buildings on the clouds, I was astounded and wanted to see more. Then I knew I was getting lowered gently and back into the bed, this whole time I wanted to stay and didn’t want to go back. I even cried out ‘I don’t want to leave! I want to stay!’
In bed, I could not stop thinking about it. I slept and when I woke, I remembered this vision still. I was thinking about it so intensely I even made mistakes at the job I worked that day. I told a fellow believer in Christ about it and over time I did start to forget this vision. But when I recall, it has brought me such encouragement to keep on the path of Christ. I felt the Lord has blessed me to this so I do not doubt the eternal prize – even though all I want is to pursue the Lord Jesus 100%.
May the Lord and King bless you and know this too, He has a great and wonderful plan and place for you! All glory to FATHER GOD!
Gate of Heaven
Anna Stewart 6/1/23 (David’s notes in red)
Last night Obi had the following dream, and I wrote down his narration of it:
Obi: The dream started where I was praying that the Lord would remove any spiritual uncleanness from my heart, because I knew if I didn’t do that, that I wouldn’t make it into heaven.
Then I was at Fio and Lana’s with all the other kids. We were playing in Fio and Max’s room with the light off. Then Victoria came and opened the door. (Anna: We were in the dark, but the light of the truth brings victory over sin and death.)
Then I saw the gate to go into heaven. There was no hell at their house, but just heaven. And I went to heaven. The gates to go to heaven were locked when I got inside, so all the devils that I could see, trying so hard to get in, couldn’t get in. It was so hard to get in that they couldn’t even get in.
(Mat 7:21-23 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father who is in heaven. 22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy by thy name, and by thy name cast out demons, and by thy name do many mighty works? 23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.)
I was the only kid that was in heaven. (Eph 4:7-10 But unto each one of us was the grace given according to the measure of the gift of Christ. 8 Wherefore he saith, When he ascended on high, he led captivity captive, And gave gifts unto men. 9 (Now this, He ascended, what is it but that he also descended into the lower parts of the earth? 10 He that descended is the same also that ascended far above all the heavens, that he might fill all things.)
And I saw God and Jesus and a few other people. I couldn’t tell if they were angels or not, but none of them had wings. God and Jesus looked really similar. God had a mad face; I think it was because God was sad because not all people made it into heaven. (David: Or maybe it was because wicked people were working to make others miss heaven.) I was so happy because I had made it into heaven and I was so happy because I was able to get there and I had made it.
Let The River Of Life Flow
Samuel Fire 5/8/23
I saw a vision: There was water flowing as a river through a valley, and gold was revealed on the floor as the water flowed over the riverbed. I then saw the river stop. Without any flowing water, no gold can be exposed. If the water stayed still, it became stagnant, which makes it useless, stale and bad. With the water flowing constantly, it will bring out all the gold and precious jewels. (The water is the Word. The gold and jewels are the prize God wants to cherish. Our lives are the process of the whole thing.
Joh 4:10-14 Jesus answered and said unto her, If thou knewest the gift of God, and who it is that saith to thee, Give me to drink; thou wouldest have asked of him, and he would have given thee living water. (This is moving or flowing water unlike a well.) 11 The woman saith unto him, Sir, thou hast nothing to draw with, and the well is deep: whence then hast thou that living water? 12 Art thou greater than our father Jacob, who gave us the well, and drank thereof himself, and his sons, and his cattle?
13 Jesus answered and said unto her, Every one that drinketh of this water shall thirst again: 14 but whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall become in him a well of water springing up unto eternal life.
And Rev 7:16-17 They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun strike upon them, nor any heat: 17 for the Lamb that is in the midst of the throne shall be their shepherd, and shall guide them unto fountains of waters of life: and God shall wipe away every tear from their eyes.
And Rev 21:6-8 And he said unto me, They are come to pass. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely. 7 He that overcometh shall inherit these things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son. 8 But for the fearful, and unbelieving, and abominable, and murderers, and fornicators, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, their part shall be in the lake that burneth with fire and brimstone; which is the second death.
And Rev 22:1-2 And he showed me a river of water of life, bright as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb, 2 in the midst of the street thereof. And on this side of the river and on that was the tree of life, bearing twelve manner of fruits, yielding its fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.)
Marie Kelton 5-6-23 (David’s notes in red)
During pot blessing, I had another open vision of a huge demon with an axe. It threw the axe at me, and I knew it was aiming for my head. Then I saw the Lord and He intercepted it. He caught the axe and threw it back at the demon and destroyed it. The Lord then turned to me and smiled. (Praise God He is always faithful to protect us.)
Tianna Fire 1/1/22
An evil thought came to my mind that I didn't agree with. I asked Father for the Holy Angels to take away the demon that gave me the thought.
I then saw a Holy Angel grab the demon and put it inside a cannon and it fired, and the demon got shot or flew so far away I couldn't see where it landed. Praise our God!
King Jesus Expels The Darkness
Marie Kelton 7/10/23 (David’s notes in red)
During the meeting, I had an open vision.
I was looking at the sky, it was pitch black. The land was also pitch black where I couldn't tell the difference between the sky and the land. I saw the Lord dressed as King in the sky, He was in a white light sitting on a throne.
As I was looking at the darkness all around me, I noticed that the Lord and the light He was in got smaller and smaller. I then turned my head to the left to look at the Lord and He started getting bigger and bigger, to where the Lord and His light expelled the darkness totally. And all I could see was the white light. (Keep your eyes on the Lord and the darkness loses ground and power. He will keep in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on thee.)
Joh 9:5 When I am in the world, I am the light of the world. Joh 12:46 I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me may not abide in the darkness. 1Jn 1:5 And this is the message which we have heard from him and announce unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.
Exhortations in Philippians
Php 1:27-4:21 Only let your manner of life be worthy of the gospel of Christ: that, whether I come and see you or be absent, I may hear of your state, that ye stand fast in one spirit, with one soul …(Jesus prayed Father I pray that they may be one as we are one. And ever since wolves have come in to scatter the flock for their own aggrandizement.
But even this works for the unity of the flock for in Pro 17:4 An evil-doer giveth heed to wicked lips; And a liar giveth ear to a mischievous tongue. (So we see that this cleanses the spots in our love feasts so that we can be all white and all one. This is God’s test to remove the leaven.) Deu 13:1-5 If there arise in the midst of thee a prophet, or a dreamer of dreams, and he give thee a sign or a wonder, 2 and the sign or the wonder come to pass, whereof he spake unto thee, saying, Let us go after other gods, (I.e. another Jesus by twisting or ignoring the scriptures.) which thou hast not known, and let us serve them;
3 thou shalt not hearken unto the words of that prophet, or unto that dreamer of dreams: for Jehovah your God proveth you, to know whether ye love Jehovah your God with all your heart and with all your soul. 4 Ye shall walk after Jehovah your God, and fear him, and keep his commandments, and obey his voice, and ye shall serve him, and cleave unto him.
5 And that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams, shall be put to death, (The faction promotes another Jesus who does not believe the Bible and has no conscience.) because he hath spoken rebellion against Jehovah your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, and redeemed thee out of the house of bondage, to draw thee aside out of the way which Jehovah thy God commanded thee to walk in. So shalt thou put away the evil from the midst of thee.
And Paul continued saying …striving for the faith of the gospel.(Our faith must be rooted and grounded in the Good News. The wicked always concentrate on the bad news for they are among the flock to tear down and not build up or edify.) Rom 16:19 For your obedience is come abroad unto all men.
I rejoice therefore over you: but I would have you wise unto that which is good, and simple unto that which is evil. (Although the wicked always have much to criticize they criticize others because they feel it builds them up in the eyes of others. As we have seen in the political and Church realm these factious people blame others for what they are doing and this always catches up to them for the righteous see their motives.)
Continuing: 28 and in nothing affrighted by the adversaries: which is for them an evident token of perdition, but of your salvation, and that from God; (The adversaries in our midst will always become known because they always persecute the righteous. In this way you will know “who is who.” They spend all of their time persecuting others and no time getting the good news out. This is a sign of their “perdition” meaning, coming destruction.)
Continuing: 29 because to you it hath been granted in the behalf of Christ, not only to believe on him, but also to suffer in his behalf: 30 having the same conflict which ye saw in me, and now hear to be in me. (The righteous should know and resign themselves to this persecution because they know it is their cross to bear. The wicked are offended and put to shame by Christ in the righteous because they love their sins of unforgiveness, bitterness, pride and selfish ego. As it was with Paul so it should be in us. If the wicked do not repent and fail to denigrate the righteous they are seen for what they are, they will ultimately flee their righteous presence.)
Continuing: 2:1 If there is therefore any exhortation in Christ, if any consolation of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any tender mercies and compassions, 2 make full my joy, that ye be of the same mind, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind; (We must always bend the knee to the exhortations of Christ through His Apostles and Word or we will be bundled with the tares, while the righteous shine forth in the Kingdom of our Father. Notice that we are to have “the same mind” as these exhortations of love, mercy, and compassion. Those who take the low road will soon be gone and will not pass through the righteous to test them any longer.)
Continuing: 3 doing nothing through faction or through vainglory, (Faction is for the purpose of “vain glory.” The wolves use their tongue and teeth to faction the weak from the flock in order to devour them for their “vain glory.” Most often the wolves have rejection and try to appease its pain by factioning others unto themselves to gain their respect. They lust for position and respect even if it’s over the reprobates. Rather than being a little fish in a big pond they would rather be a big fish in a little pond and are a danger then to the little fish.)
Continuing: but in lowliness of mind each counting other better than himself; (These humble people belong to Christ and He gives them grace to grow and prosper.) 4 not looking each of you to his own things, but each of you also to the things of others. (As in keeping with the demonstration of the life of Christ to sacrifice self for others.) 5 Have this mind in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: 6 who, existing in the form of God, counted not the being on an equality with God a thing to be grasped, (The wicked always seek to take the place of God in judging and teaching others but they do not judge and teach themselves and therefore are not qualified.)
Continuing: 7 but emptied himself, taking the form of a servant, being made in the likeness of men; (We are called to be servants, empty of self, prepared of God to build His Kingdom.) 8 and being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, becoming obedient even unto death, yea, the death of the cross. (If we humble ourselves and our will to our cross, which is obeying God’s Word, we will be exalted by God. Yes, the Word is our cross and if you can't obey it you are not on it.)
Continuing: 9 Wherefore also God highly exalted him, and gave unto him the name which is above every name; (Notice that God exalts the obedient cross bearers by giving them the highest name, meaning in Greek: nature, character, and authority, of our Lord. This is the manifestation of Christ, the Word, in our “mortal flesh.”)
2Co 4:7-11 But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, (The treasure is the seed of Christ’s Word in our hearts, which grows only in the tilled earth of our flesh.) that the exceeding greatness of the power may be of God, and not from ourselves; (Gods power is available to the obediant cross bearers.)
8 we are pressed on every side, yet not straitened; perplexed, yet not unto despair; (Those who love truth more than flesh are pressed into the Golden Mold of Jesus Christ to be like Him. Those who are malleable, that is humbley conformed to the mold of His Word through crucifying circumstances around them will be like Him.) 9 pursued, yet not forsaken; smitten down, yet not destroyed; 10 always bearing about in the body the dying of Jesus, (There is the condition. Here is the result for meeting it.) that the life also of Jesus may be manifested in our body. 11 For we who live are always delivered unto death for Jesus' sake, (There is the condition. Here is the result for meeting it.) that the life also of Jesus may be manifested in our mortal flesh.
Continuing: 10 that in the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven and things on earth and things under the earth, (“In the name” is not “at the name”. In the name, means to abide IN in the nature, character, and authority, of our Lord.) 11 and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. (Jesus is Lord of every situation if we confess Him. If we don't confess, meaning “speak the same as” He said He would not confess us before our Father or the angels, which means we do without His benefits.)
Continuing: 12 So then, my beloved, even as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, (Wow, they always obeyed and even in Paul’s absence. The wickedness today is that they disobey behind your back. The Church has fallen a long way!) work out your own salvation with fear and trembling; (Oh, here is what's missing. Working out your salvation by faith and obedience. And the fear of the Lord!) 13 for it is God who worketh in you both to will and to work, for his good pleasure. (Ah, the key: We believe and confess, and He works in us by His power in a weak vessel.)
Continuing: 14 Do all things without murmurings and questionings: (I.e. Don't speak against the Lord or He will give you what you say.) Num 14:27 How long shall I bear with this evil congregation, that murmur against me? I have heard the murmurings of the children of Israel, which they murmur against me. 28 Say unto them, As I live, saith Jehovah, surely as ye have spoken in mine ears, so will I do to you: 29 your dead bodies shall fall in this wilderness; and all that were numbered of you, according to your whole number, from twenty years old and upward, that have murmured against me. So if you are old enough in the Lord to know better you are held responsible.
Continuing: 15 that ye may become blameless and harmless, children of God without blemish in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom ye are seen as lights in the world, (We don't have the Light if we do not confess agreement with the Word.) 16 holding forth the word of life; that I may have whereof to glory in the day of Christ, that I did not run in vain neither labor in vain. (If we do not confess the Word, we run in vain.) 17 Yea, and if I am offered upon the sacrifice and service of your faith, I joy, and rejoice with you all: 18 and in the same manner do ye also joy, and rejoice with me.
19 But I hope in the Lord Jesus to send Timothy shortly unto you, that I also may be of good comfort, when I know your state. 20 For I have no man likeminded, who will care truly for your state. 21 For they all seek their own, not the things of Jesus Christ. (You mean those who heard the Word of Paul sought their own things instead of Jesus, just like today?) 22 But ye know the proof of him, that, as a child serveth a father, so he served with me in furtherance of the gospel. (Some serve the gospel and the factious criticize them and never preach the gospel or see miracles, healings, etc.)
23 Him therefore I hope to send forthwith, so soon as I shall see how it will go with me: 24 but I trust in the Lord that I myself also shall come shortly. 25 But I counted it necessary to send to you Epaphroditus, my brother and fellow-worker and fellow-soldier, and your messenger and minister to my need.
26 since he longed after you all, and was sore troubled, because ye had heard that he was sick: 27 for indeed he was sick nigh unto death: but God had mercy on him; and not on him only, but on me also, that I might not have sorrow upon sorrow. 28 I have sent him therefore the more diligently, that, when ye see him again, ye may rejoice, and that I may be the less sorrowful. 29 Receive him therefore in the Lord with all joy; and hold such in honor: 30 because for the work of Christ he came nigh unto death, hazarding his life to supply that which was lacking in your service toward me. (Epaphroditus was a true servant and brother to put the needs of Paul ahead of his own.)
3:1 Finally, my brethren, rejoice in the Lord. (Amen!, rejoice in the Lord always; again I say rejoice.) To write the same things to you, to me indeed is not irksome, but for you it is safe. (Notice he was tired of giving the same warnings, saying the same thing, but he had to just like me.) 2 Beware of the dogs, beware of the evil workers, beware of the concision:
3 for we are the circumcision, who worship by the Spirit of God, and glory in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh: 4 though I myself might have confidence even in the flesh: (Pride is confidence in ones own flesh even while they have no conscience to obey the Word. Paul was in faction against the Christian Jews but God was merciful and stopped him in his tracks on the Damascus Road. When one continues in this way God usually turns them over to a reprobate mind to be a witness to the congregation.)
if any other man thinketh to have confidence in the flesh, I yet more: 5 circumcised the eighth day, of the stock of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, a Hebrew of Hebrews; as touching the law, a Pharisee; 6 as touching zeal, persecuting the church; as touching the righteousness which is in the law, found blameless. (But God showed Paul a solution to this self-righteousness.)
7 Howbeit what things were gain to me, these have I counted loss for Christ. 8 Yea verily, and I count all things to be loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but refuse, that I may gain Christ, (He had to give up all of his pride of religion, all of his self-righteousness, all of his unforgiveness and faction against the Christians, all of his factious friends, all of the respect he had from his friends, all of his possessions to be a steward of Christ.)
9 and be found in him, not having a righteousness of mine own, even that which is of the law, but that which is through faith in Christ, the righteousness which is from God by faith: (He had to be justified by faith alone to be saved.) 10 that I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, becoming conformed unto his death; (He had to suffer like Jesus the giving up his carnal life.) 11 if by any means I may attain unto the resurrection from the dead. (Those who do not give up their life will not gain their life as our Lord said.)
12 Not that I have already obtained, or am already made perfect: but I press on, if so be that I may lay hold on that for which also I was laid hold on by Christ Jesus. (Notice: He was laid hold on by Christ in order to manifest perfection.) 13 Brethren, I count not myself yet to have laid hold: but one thing I do, forgetting the things which are behind, and stretching forward to the things which are before. (Paul had to Forget his past sins and his past unforgiveness or he would not be forgiven and would fall under judgment. And today these kind will miss the Bride and Man-child and the Kingdom.)
14 I press on toward the goal unto the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. 15 Let us therefore, as many as are perfect, (by faith) be thus minded: and if in anything ye are otherwise minded, this also shall God reveal unto you: (When God points out what more He expects of you, will you listen and act or will you delay and forget.) 16 only, whereunto we have attained, by that same rule let us walk. (So, don't fall back, you haven't time for that now.) 17 Brethren, be ye imitators together of me, and mark them that so walk even as ye have us for an ensample. (Jesus and Paul are examples for us disciples to follow in their steps by obeying their Words.)
18 For many walk, of whom I told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ: (Because they cherish their old life and sins.) 19 whose end is perdition, (sons of destruction) whose god is the belly, (their flesh) and whose glory is in their shame, who mind earthly things. (Many glory in their shame that others can see but they cannot.)
20 For our citizenship is in heaven; whence also we wait for a Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ: 21 who shall fashion anew the body of our humiliation, that it may be conformed to the body of his glory, (When the Lord comes, He will give only a new body to those who are sanctified with a new soul. Some think He will give a new soul after death but here is where we are sanctified.) according to the working whereby he is able even to subject all things unto himself. (Just as He gave us a new spirit, he has given us a new soul by faith. These will have a new body.)
4:1 Wherefore, my brethren beloved and longed for, my joy and crown, so stand fast in the Lord, my beloved. 2 I exhort Euodia (meaning the successful), and I exhort Syntyche (meaning the failure), to be of the same mind in the Lord. (All must have faith to get the same results :o) 3 Yea, I beseech thee also, true yokefellow, help these women, for they labored with me in the gospel, with Clement also, and the rest of my fellow-workers, whose names are in the book of life. (God is sovereign and even our failures work to humble us.)
4 Rejoice in the Lord always: again I will say, Rejoice. 5 Let your forbearance be known unto all men. (Forbearance is tolerance and restraint in the face of provocation; it is patience with others.) The Lord is at hand. 6 In nothing be anxious; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. (I.e dont worry about a thing just ask and give thanks for the answer.) 7 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall guard your hearts and your thoughts in Christ Jesus. (This gives peace; pray and believe you have received.)
8 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honorable, 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. (Negative thoughts destroy souls, yours and those who are around you. Thoughts become emotions which become words and actions, and a falling away, so repent quickly.) 9 The things which ye both learned and received and heard and saw in me, these things do: and the God of peace shall be with you. (Be a disciple, meaning a learner and follower, of Jesus, and Paul.)
10 But I rejoice in the Lord greatly, that now at length ye have revived your thought for me; wherein ye did indeed take thought, but ye lacked opportunity. 11 Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therein to be content. 12 I know how to be abased, and I know also how to abound: in everything and in all things have I learned the secret both to be filled and to be hungry, both to abound and to be in want. (Believe in the sovereignty of God to work all things for your good. This gives rest. Believe you have received. This gives rest.)
13 I can do all things in him that strengtheneth me. (What a promise! Remember this, God will strengthen you to do all that is His will and many times in your permissive will and whatsoever you can believe and confess for.) 14 Howbeit ye did well that ye had fellowship with my affliction. 15 And ye yourselves also know, ye Philippians, that in the beginning of the gospel, when I departed from Macedonia, no church had fellowship with me in the matter of giving and receiving but ye only; 16 for even in Thessalonica ye sent once and again unto my need. 17 Not that I seek for the gift; but I seek for the fruit that increaseth to your account. (I feel the same way toward our supporters. Father, bless those with righteousness and every supply who have suffered to help us get the Word out in many forms. And to help the missionaries bring the gospel to their people, as your Word says.)
2Co 9:6-13 But this I say, He that soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he that soweth bountifully shall reap also bountifully.
Continuing: 18 But I have all things, and abound: I am filled, having received from Epaphroditus the things that came from you, an odor of a sweet smell, a sacrifice acceptable, well-pleasing to God. (This is true also of the saints who have helped to shoulder the burden of all the missionaries who hazzard their lives to get the gospel out to the hungry souls. To all those who help print the books that they cry for. To all those who supply their food in their famine and lack. THANK YOU) 19 And my God shall supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus. 20 Now unto our God and Father be the glory for ever and ever. Amen. 21 Salute every saint in Christ Jesus. The brethren that are with me salute you.

David Eells – 7/30/23
Calling All UBM
Vanessa Weeks 7/21/23 (David’s notes in red)
I dreamed that Barry and I were at home and I was standing in the kitchen. A man's voice came on both of our cell phones, as if over a loudspeaker. It said, "Calling all UBM, Calling all UBM." I thought in the dream that this was a voice text from the leadership of UBM but the voice was not anyone I knew. Then I woke up. (Calling is a Biblical term, Kaleo, meaning an invitation to partake of the benefits of God’s Kingdom. God is calling us all to walk in these benefits.)
I asked the Lord to show me what this call was about and went back to sleep and I saw a tall evergreen tree at the edge of a lake. This reminds me of Psa. 1:1-3 Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the wicked, Nor standeth in the way of sinners, Nor sitteth in the seat of scoffers: 2 But his delight is in the law of Jehovah; And on his law doth he meditate day and night. 3 And he shall be like a tree planted by the streams of water, That bringeth forth its fruit in its season, Whose leaf also doth not wither; And whatsoever he doeth shall prosper. (The water is the word, the gospel, the promises, the benefit. Let us partake to the fullest.)
Later in the night, I heard "Luke 14." I did not remember what this chapter was about. Most of it is about the Lord calling people to the marriage feast. (This feast of seven day/years the Bride and those invited will be feasting on the Word that is the life of Jesus, the body and blood of Christ.)
Luke 14:1 And it came to pass, when he went into the house of one of the rulers of the Pharisees on a sabbath to eat bread, that they were watching him. 2 And behold, there was before him a certain man that had the dropsy. 3 And Jesus answering spake unto the lawyers and Pharisees, saying, Is it lawful to heal on the sabbath, or not? 4 But they held their peace. And he took him, and healed him, and let him go. (It is not lawful to do man’s works on the sabbath, only God’s works. Jesus is Lord of the sabbath. Those who follow and walk with Him are keeping the sabbath every day not just one.)
5 And he said unto them, Which of you shall have an ass or an ox fallen into a well, and will not straightway draw him up on a sabbath day? 6 And they could not answer again unto these things. (Their legalism only suited them when it was put on someone else.) 7 And he spake a parable unto those that were bidden (invited), when he marked how they chose out the chief seats; saying unto them, 8 When thou art bidden of any man to a marriage feast, sit not down in the chief seat; lest haply a more honorable man than thou be bidden of him, (They who humble themselves will be exalted.)
9 and he that bade thee and him shall come and say to thee, Give this man place; and then thou shalt begin with shame to take the lowest place. 10 But when thou art bidden, go and sit down in the lowest place; that when he that hath bidden thee cometh, he may say to thee, Friend, go up higher: then shalt thou have glory in the presence of all that sit at meat with thee. 11 For every one that exalteth himself shall be humbled; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted. (Like the preachers who claim for themselves exalted titles and positions.) 12 And he said to him also that had bidden him, When thou makest a dinner or a supper, call not thy friends, nor thy brethren, nor thy kinsmen, nor rich neighbors; lest haply they also bid thee again, and a recompense be made thee.
13 But when thou makest a feast, bid the poor, the maimed, the lame, the blind: 14 and thou shalt be blessed; because they have not wherewith to recompense thee: for thou shalt be recompensed in the resurrection of the just. (What we do should not be because of advantage but for glory from God who sees all.) 15 And when one of them that sat at meat with him heard these things, he said unto him, Blessed is he that shall eat bread in the kingdom of God. 16 But he said unto him, A certain man made a great supper; and he bade many:
17 and he sent forth his servant at supper time to say to them that were bidden (Kaleo: Invited to partake of the benefits of the kingdom), Come; for all things are now ready. 18 And they all with one consent began to make excuse. The first said unto him, I have bought a field, and I must needs go out and see it; I pray thee have me excused. 19 And another said, I have bought five yoke of oxen, and I go to prove them; I pray thee have me excused. 20 And another said, I have married a wife, and therefore I cannot come. (The majority of God’s people love the world and the things of the world more than the things of the Kingdom. The tribulation will wake them up to know their wasted time.)
21 And the servant came, and told his lord these things. Then the master of the house being angry said to his servant, Go out quickly into the streets and lanes of the city, and bring in hither the poor and maimed and blind and lame. (Those who were needy of the benefits of the Kingdom replaced those who were full of the world. Jas 2:5 Hearken, my beloved brethren; did not God choose them that are poor as to the world to be rich in faith, and heirs of the kingdom which he promised to them that love him?
1Jn 2:15-16 Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh and the lust of the eyes and the vainglory of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.)
22 And the servant said, Lord, what thou didst command is done, and yet there is room. 23 And the lord said unto the servant, Go out into the highways and hedges, and constrain them to come in, that my house may be filled. 24 For I say unto you, that none of those men that were bidden shall taste of my supper. (Those who turn up their nose to the Kingdom for the lusts of the flesh will miss out.)
25 Now there went with him great multitudes: and he turned, and said unto them, 26 If any man cometh unto me, and hateth not his own father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple. (Meaning to hate their fleshly soulish life enough to follow Jesus to life eternal.) 27 Whosoever doth not bear his own cross, and come after me, cannot be my disciple. 28 For which of you, desiring to build a tower, doth not first sit down and count the cost, whether he have wherewith to complete it? (The cost is to give up the old life.)
29 Lest haply, when he hath laid a foundation, and is not able to finish, all that behold begin to mock him, 30 saying, This man began to build, and was not able to finish. 31 Or what king, as he goeth to encounter another king in war, will not sit down first and take counsel whether he is able with ten thousand to meet him that cometh against him with twenty thousand? 32 Or else, while the other is yet a great way off, he sendeth an ambassage, and asketh conditions of peace. (In the parable of the sower 3 of 4 did not bear fruit because we must give up the old life to have the new. 2Co 4:16 Wherefore we faint not; but though our outward man is decaying, yet our inward man is renewed day by day.
33 So therefore whosoever he be of you that renounceth not all that he hath, he cannot be my disciple. 34 Salt therefore is good: but if even the salt have lost its savor, wherewith shall it be seasoned? 35 It is fit neither for the land nor for the dunghill: men cast it out. He that hath ears to hear, let him hear. (Rev 3:15-17 I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. 16 So because thou art lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spew thee out of my mouth. 17 Because thou sayest, I am rich, and have gotten riches, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art the wretched one and miserable and poor and blind and naked.)
Father, Let us answer your call and come in Jesus’ name amen.
Our young son was purposely free falling and jumping backwards without any fear, or doubt and unbelief. He doesn't even know where he will fall and what he will land on, he has no worry but just trusts God that he will be fine. He was also doing forward jumps and falls, and he had much joy and enjoyed it very much. I love that childlike faith that he can jump or fall without any worry and without any complaint, and I love how he has no fear or doubt.
I love that I can pick him up whenever I want, no matter what he is doing, and he doesn’t complain about me interrupting his plans or activity but is calm and content. Whereas when God interrupts my plans for His, or when things don’t go the way I planned, I battle complaining and battle my own will. But I hope and desire to have that same childlike faith that God knows best, and His way is best always, and I should be content no matter what situation God puts me in and be without complaint.
I love how our son doesn’t worry about what he will eat and what he will wear and he doesn’t worry about the past or future, but lives in the moment and he appreciates all the little, tiny things as well as the big, and he is grateful.
I love how he wakes up with extreme joy and energy in spirit and the physical, and he doesn’t complain or worry about the day, but he always starts it with much joy. I love how he doesn’t hold onto anything negative even when he doesn’t get his own way. He is quick to let go of it and he doesn’t hold a grudge or unforgiveness. I need all these things and I need God’s grace to allow it to manifest. But I love so much his child like faith, and I want it.
Mat 18:2-5 And he called to him a little child, and set it in their midst, 3 and said, Amen I say unto you, Except ye turn, and become as the little children, ye shall in no wise enter into the kingdom of the heavens. 4 Whoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is the greater in the kingdom of the heavens. 5 And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me:
Father, Holy Sovereign God, please give us all grace and faith to believe and to manifest childlike faith in ALL things. Allow us and let our will be to truly appreciate You for all things and to not want what you haven’t given us. Allow us to not worry about what we will eat or what we will wear or anything else. Allow us to praise You and thank You with our spirit, soul and body every second, no matter what circumstance we are in. Let us be always grateful and let us live for each moment and allow us to let go of all the past and not worry about the future but to stand strong in Your Word and Promises and Spirit. Allow us to trust You with all of our existence and allow us to fall back into Your arms having no doubt, fear or worry and allow us to always rest in You and Your Word every moment. Thank You Father for Blessing us all with childlike faith! All Glory to You forever and ever, thank You Lord that everything will worship you now and for eternity! AMEN.
Andrew Slojewski 9/12/22 (David’s notes in red)
I dreamed about a house I had in a small town called Plantagenet. (Webster: of or relating to a royal house ruling England from 1154 to 1485. A nickname of the family adopted as surname. Possibly just pointing to a house of royalty in this dream.)
There were three rooms, empty of furniture, on the first level. It had a living room, a passageway into the dining room and a small landing two stairs up. Then down into the kitchen and a doorway back into the living room; three rooms in a circle.
David Eells was there and two other grown-ups and perhaps Michael Hare. We were all watching David make a cardboard skateboard. He even stuck on two cardboard rectangles for wheels, without glue or anything. I was looking on and I thought, ‘that’s not going to work’, as one would be puzzled in a dream. (Pointing to the creation of an imagination of faith. In itself nothing is possible but when faith is added all things are possible.)
David then got on the skateboard and went the width of the living room, through the length of the dining room and somehow, I didn’t see this part, but he went up the two stairs onto the landing, and a white door closed behind him. There was a big enough gap under the door to see the cardboard go onward. (An imagination of faith that enabled him to go higher in the house of royalty. Here is an imagination that will do this. 2Co 3:18 But we all, with unveiled face beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are transformed into the same image from glory to glory, even as from the Lord the Spirit.)
So, I went around to the living room and kitchen entrance, where I saw David come in on the board. I was looking really hard to see how this was working, bending low to see. He was showing some style, going back and forth around the living room. (Being carried without the effort of the flesh being involved; an entering into the rest of faith; a sabbath of sorts.)
So, I went to the other end of the living room where the others were. David then threw the cardboard skateboard to me and said, “Your turn.” I caught it and all that was left of it was the top, like a thin, brown piece of card paper, shaped like a skateboard. I took it and put it in the place where David started, got on it and went the same way David did, the width of living room, and the length of dining room. (Representing imagination and faith will bring the spiritual life and nourishment for the spiritual man.)
The weird thing is where I didn’t see David skate on the landing and in the kitchen, I was somehow moved or transported, and then found myself in the living room, where I saw David skate. I went the length of the room to a stop and said, “It works!” To my surprise all the grown-ups were gone, and a child about 12 years old said, “Of course it works.” I don’t know if that was David as a child. (The Man-child/David’s showing others how to use the imagination to create and go in child-like faith, trusting and believing Father, that it will work.)
Then I went to the dining room window to look outside and said, “Is it not supposed to be cold, after all its wintertime?” For I saw three children out there, two boys and a girl in summer shorts and shirts. (This means by imagination and faith we can live above the worldly elements. We must be sure to have only good imaginations. The flood came because Mans imagination was only evil continually. The faction are taken over by satan this way.) The dream ended.
Keeping Your Focus On The Light
Anonymous 10/20/22 (David’s notes in red)
I was in the shower speaking with the Lord and then the devil came along and gave me a thought comparing myself to another person. I have been casting down criticizing, judgmental, comparing thoughts a lot the past week.
I went and cast it down and then heard the Lord say, “Look not to the left or to the right”. (I.e. Stay on and keep your eyes on the straight and narrow path of the Word. Jos 1:7-8 Only be strong and very courageous, to observe to do according to all the law, which Moses my servant commanded thee: turn not from it to the right hand or to the left, that thou mayest have good success whithersoever thou goest. 8 This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth, but thou shalt meditate thereon day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.)
Then I saw Jesus standing up ahead. He was wearing a glowing white light outfit and had His arms open. It felt as if He was waiting for me to continue walking (in this way) to get closer and closer to Him.
He was constantly watching me, not taking His eyes off of me. His presence was so patient, gentle, kind, understanding, loving, so peaceful and there really aren’t enough words to describe His presence.
Behind Him was this giant bright light shining and the closer I got to Him, the brighter and bigger the light was. (Coming into the Sun/Son glory of God.) Behind me was complete darkness and it kept lessening. It looked kind of like a tunnel of light with darkness all around and an opening of light up ahead with Jesus standing in front of it. The closer I got to Jesus, the more light and peace there was. (And this is the way it is.)
I felt this meant about keeping our eyes completely focused on Jesus and our own walk/race to Him and not looking at other brethren to compare our walk with them. Not looking back to the darkness or looking around but only looking to Him. (2Co 3:18 But we all, with unveiled face beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are transformed into the same image from glory to glory, even as from the Lord the Spirit.
Proverbs 4:25-27 Let thine eyes look right on, And let thine eyelids look straight before thee. 26 Make level the path of thy feet, And let all thy ways be established. 27 Turn not to the right hand nor to the left: Remove thy foot from evil.
2 Corinthians 10:12 For we are not bold to number or compare ourselves with certain of them that commend themselves: but they themselves, measuring themselves by themselves, and comparing themselves with themselves, are without understanding.
Isaiah 26:3 Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee; because he trusteth in thee.
Discerning Every Thought
Anonymous 10/18/22 (David’s notes in red)
I was sitting on the couch and suddenly I got thoughts and feelings that were normal to the carnal man but contrary to God’s Holy Spirit. I was wondering why it came so suddenly, and then I saw a fallen angel/demon standing next to me whispering in my ear. (It was giving me thoughts and trying to make me think it’s my own thoughts.)
I felt the Lord was showing me that when we get thoughts or physical feelings that are not the fruit of the Spirit or the Word that it is just demons giving us thoughts and feelings. Knowing it is a demon speaking to us makes it easier to quickly recognize it and cast it down and to hate it.
Just as I wrote this up, I remembered the verse: Hosea 4:6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I also will forget thy children.
Rom 3:4 God forbid: yea, let God be found true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy words, And mightest prevail when thou comest into judgment.
2Co 10:4-5 (for the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh, but mighty before God to the casting down of strongholds), 5 casting down imaginations, and every high thing that is exalted against the knowledge of God, and bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ.
Hugging Jesus Vision
Anonymous 10/18/22 (David’s notes in red)
I had been battling rejection for a long time and I recently decided that I really want to come 100% out of agreement with it by God’s grace and Spirit. The Lord has been helping me along more and more with it.
All of a sudden, I felt the Lord's presence strong and I knew it wasn't me but Jesus through me looking at my husband with compassion, mercy and love. I could see him manifesting rejection. Father said to me that I should go over and hug him as if he is Jesus. (I am rarely affectionate which the Lord showed me recently is because of a spirit of rejection that I had since in mother's womb, because my parents wanted to abort me.)
I felt the Lord only through me, and no demons in me putting up walls to not hug, which they usually do. I just felt Father's peace, joy, calm, gentle love. I (Jesus in me) went over to my husband and hugged him thinking of him as Jesus through his flesh hugging me back and Jesus in me. I felt God's presence really intense while in this long hug. Although it was as if I couldn't feel time, just Father's presence.
All of a sudden, I saw as third person, me hugging Jesus and the ground underneath us shattered and split apart like an earthquake. (Imagination can bring safety) It kept moving apart and the ground under us formed into this big deep dark hole so deep that I couldn't see the bottom of it. If I saw this in the natural I would have had fear and been terrified. Also battling fear of heights, however fear didn't even try and come on me, I just felt Father's peace which surpasses understanding and love and joy in hugging Jesus. Jesus and I hugging were just like floating in the air, not having moved even an inch even though the ground we were standing on had broken and split and we were above a hole.
Just as I am writing this these verses came to my mind- Psalm 62:1 My soul waiteth in silence for God only: From him cometh my salvation. 2 He only is my rock and my salvation: He is my high tower; I shall not be greatly moved.
Psalm 16:8 I have set Jehovah always before me: Because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved. 9 Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoiceth: My flesh also shall dwell in safety. 10 For thou wilt not leave my soul to Sheol; Neither wilt thou suffer thy holy one to see corruption. 11 Thou wilt show me the path of life: In thy presence is fulness of joy; In thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.
It was amazing seeing us in the exact position floating when everything else underneath was completely shaken and changed. I witnessed (in third person) the destruction that happened to the ground, but me hugging Jesus in the vision wasn't fazed by what was happening, not even taking my eyes off Jesus to look at what was going on. I just stayed hugging Jesus in His peace, trusting in Him knowing that He has me in His arms, and He will never let me go. I am not sure how long we were hugging but I just felt Father's presence intensely the whole time and when we stopped hugging, I could feel Father's presence on my husband also.
PRAISE GOD FOR CONTINUOUSLY MANIFESTING IN THE PHYSICAL COMPLETE DELIVERANCE FROM REJECTION AND ALL UNCLEAN THINGS! PRAISE YOU FATHER, ALL GLORY TO YOU!
Just as I am writing this my husband is dancing in praise to the Lord. Praise God!
2Co 5:16-17 Wherefore we henceforth know no man after the flesh: even though we have known Christ after the flesh, yet now we know him so no more. 17 Wherefore if any man is in Christ, he is a new creature: the old things are passed away; behold, they are become new. (We should believe this for ourselves and others.)
Col 1:26-27 even the mystery which hath been hid for ages and generations: but now hath it been manifested to his saints, to whom God was pleased to make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory. Phm 1:6 that the fellowship of thy faith may become effectual, in the knowledge of every good thing which is in you, unto Christ.
Exposure Of Hidden Dross
Anonymous 6/27/23 (David’s notes in red)
Word from the Lord: “The recent trials and events coming upon you all are to expose hidden things that are in your heart. These trials are My mercy and Grace to bring darkness and lies into the light. Without these trials you wouldn’t see what is hiding within you. When you see the evil that has been hiding, you can recognize it, but you have to come out of agreement with it.
The recent factions had hidden evils in their heart, and it was brought into the light and they chose their sin, their demon, rather than choosing My Spirit and the way of complete Holiness. My eternal Bride is glorious and is perfect just as My Son. If you are content with only having a distant friend relationship with Me then you will have that. There are many here with Me even now who are not as close to Me as they could have been or be, though they are as close to Me as they want to be.
To be closer to Me you need to let go of ALL subtle idols. What would you rather be doing than be in My Presence? Or what are you doing without My presence with you? If you aren't constantly communing with Me now, how will you commune with Me every moment for all eternity?
Choose wisely as your decisions now affect your eternity. Count these trials as joy and a Blessing that you are worthy to suffer for My Names sake that you will be Holy without spot or blemish and be able to stand in My Presence.
To My chosen I will keep destroying every idol you have that isn't Me, I Am jealous for you and I will do what it takes for you to choose me in everything. I will show you that there is no answer or satisfaction in anything other than Me. (I felt this meant He will do whatever it takes for us to let go of idols. This will hurt if our heart is with the idol, but ultimately it is for our own good.)
Rest in My Promises and they will manifest.
Submit to me and the devil will flee. Seek Me on My purpose in this trial and what I Am trying to teach you. Learning this lesson quickly helps the trial pass quicker but do so without doubt and complaint. I Am for you and not against you. Everything I do is to perfect you, but I can only do My work when you allow Me to.
Allow your eyes to be opened to see in which areas you are out of My will. Allow Me to help you get rid of all earthly mindset and carnal reasoning.
Remember I Am in control no matter what happens. Get deep into My presence, meditate and seek Me with all your mind, soul and spirit and you will see clearly in the light, the Truth of what is going on and why. In My presence you will discern the evil and good and see the things that are really in your heart. Give the sin to Me, I want to take it away from you, but I won't force it from you.
Look at those that fell away, you are a witness to what happens to those that won't give up their "hidden sins". The path they take is a dangerous one that only a few return back from.”
(I felt God is shaking everything that can be shaken inside of us, to bring secret things in us to light so we can come out of agreement with them and in exchange we will be closer to Him.)
Allow The Lord Control
Samuel Fire 4/24/23 (David’s notes in red)
In prayer I heard:
“Only I can lift you up. Not self, not anything else. Learn and appreciate what I Am and what I have done for you. You are either with Me or against Me. (If you are against me, which is futile, will end in weeping and gnashing of teeth in outer darkness forever.)
I have supplied ALL your needs. Remember, My Son, The One and Only, He wants you in My Presence forever. He did ALL and nothing was left out. Go and learn what ‘receive’ is. Find out the ways you can receive everything that I Am.
Stand in the Faith. Be vigilant and aggressive against the lies. You have been chosen. Finish the test strong, and believe the results outweigh the trials. Remember who you are to Me. I Am near and need you more than you acknowledge. Read. Pray. Praise. And keep focused.
There are so many people deep in need for Me. Be the light and example for them to follow. Stop reacting, and act accordingly as My Son. Be the image and character which is adored and sought after. Everything is against the Christ in you, yet you have not a measure to be compared to the victory already done.
Be mindful of the thoughts of freedom and eternity. Nothing can separate you from the family in Me. Be alert as the enemy is prowling to harm and take what I bless you with.” (I felt we need to consider everything as though the enemy is trying to sneak in, like a virus in a computer file.)
Joh 8:44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father it is your will to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and standeth not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father thereof.
Joh 10:10 The thief cometh not, but that he may steal, and kill, and destroy: I came that they may have life, and may have it abundantly.
Dancing With The Lord
Marie Kelton 4/17/23 (David’s notes in red)
During the meeting, I had an open vision. When I looked down at my legs, I saw that I had my old leg braces on. Then Jesus came and knelt down and loosened the straps and took my braces off. I then saw myself in a white dress dancing in a ballroom with the Lord, who was also wearing all white.
(The leg braces are an external man-made device that supports, stabilizes, compresses or simply protects the leg, helping one to stand and to walk. There is no longer a need for the leg braces because the Lord has healed her and He is her strength and stability; He causes her to walk in righteousness, and she walks uprightly in her heart in Truth by faith in His grace. Dancing with the Lord represents being close to Him, moving freely with Him, and following in His steps as He leads the Bride and they move together as One.)
Psa 15:2 He that walketh uprightly, and worketh righteousness, And speaketh truth in his heart;
Pro 2:7-8 He layeth up sound wisdom for the upright; He is a shield to them that walk in integrity; 8 That he may guard the paths of justice, And preserve the way of his saints.
Rev 3:4-5 But thou hast a few names in Sardis that did not defile their garments: and they shall walk with me in white; for they are worthy. 5 He that overcometh shall thus be arrayed in white garments; and I will in no wise blot his name out of the book of life, and I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels.
2Sa 6:14 And David danced before Jehovah with all his might; and David was girded with a linen ephod.
Jer 31:13 Then shall the virgin rejoice in the dance, and the young men and the old together; for I will turn their mourning into joy, and will comfort them, and make them rejoice from their sorrow.
Psa 30:11 Thou hast turned for me my mourning into dancing; Thou hast loosed my sackcloth, and girded me with gladness;
Psa 149:1-3 Praise ye Jehovah. Sing unto Jehovah a new song, And his praise in the assembly of the saints. 2 Let Israel rejoice in him that made him: Let the children of Zion be joyful in their King. 3 Let them praise his name in the dance: Let them sing praises unto him with timbrel and harp.
Son 6:13 Return, return, O Shulammite; Return, return, that we may look upon thee. Why will ye look upon the Shulammite, As upon the dance of Mahanaim?
The Warmth Of His Love
Samuel Fire 5/19/23
I was in prayer and heard:
“Know that you are chosen and paid for, fought for, and very important to Me. The importance of declaring this over and over in every way possible makes the ground you hold, clean and new. It's after these things are continually worked on, that My love will be established and grow through who you are and the things and people around you.
Fire will burn. There is plenty to keep it going. Are you warm? How about the people around you? Spiritually this hunger and desire is filled but it takes the removal of the old flesh to accept and move with the sensation of a life set apart for a purpose. The flame is not all about the heat and burning. Look at the glow. It moves, it spreads. I Am in you and now you are exactly where I want you to be, and each aspect is for a good reason.
Be ye happy with Me. If there is an evil thing manifesting, it has taken a position more important to you than the love of My Son. If you want to be free of something, remove the things that cause the sin. The absence of evil allows goodness to grow. Substitute the reactions and ill feelings with the power and love of Christ. Just hold onto this truth, nothing can outlast or overwhelm Me.
Rom 8:35-39 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or anguish, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? 36 Even as it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; We were accounted as sheep for the slaughter. 37 Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. 38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, 39 nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
I saw a pot of water boiling. It made steam. I was shown the water will keep evaporating if the fire kept boiling the pot. It just needs to be boiling, so the fire had to remain and never get too low. Soon the water goes lower, and the fire was more than enough for the water to keep boiling and had a greater power to keep making steam. Eventually the water boiled off completely and the pot was getting so hot, it was changing color.
I was then told the water is the evil stuff that accumulated in life. The fire is now getting those things to come up and eventually leave as steam. The steam are the times things got too excessive but never remained. The fire is Me and the Word being applied, thinking and living the way of Christ. The pot is the vessel the life and timeline lived.
Mat 3:11-12 I indeed baptize you in water unto repentance: but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you in the Holy Spirit and in fire: 12 whose fan is in his hand, and he will thoroughly cleanse his threshing-floor; and he will gather his wheat into the garner, but the chaff he will burn up with unquenchable fire.
These trials are nothing compared to those who have not used their faith or trust in Me. You will overcome and be glad. Hold and frame the picture of the end. See yourself and what you are clothed in and who you're next to and where you are. I am very pleased!”
Samuel Fire 3/25/23
In this vision, I had been filled with weightlessness and I rose up higher. I keep being lifted up, until I saw that I was above what I could describe as a floor of completely white clouds, which led to an area with golden gates as an entrance. I approached the gates, although I was hesitant to, as I was uncertain if I was welcome and worthy. The closer I came to the gates, I was filled with excitement and thrills, but in calm and peace, I wish I had better words to describe this. It kept getting more intense, but it never felt overwhelming or fake.
Then, I looked ahead into the depth of Heaven beyond the gates and there was an intense bright, white light which reached all around. While I looked, I heard amazing and beautiful singing. I felt such joy and bliss, and where I was, I was happy and delighted not wanting to return to the physical place anymore. It was the peak level of happiness I have not had before, and totally genuine.
I then was erupting with excitement and praise to our Father. As I did this, the very moment, I felt The Great Father of All, calling me but I didn’t hear it as my name. He allowed me to come closer and enter through the entrance gates area towards Him. The golden gates were opened but I didn’t realize they had opened up, I didn’t see an action for them opening, they just were open.
This part I really want to describe as best I can. I would have been super pleased for all eternity being in that one spot. What I saw, looking in one spot at one part of the walls was a crystal rainbow but clear and golden glowing light, which looked so beautiful. I was content and delighted if I were to stare at this forever. Then to move my eyes, even to move my head to look around, I was then filled more and more with delight and joy. I was so filled up with amazing emotions beyond anything I could say I have experienced in the physical. Then, obeying the call of the Father and my attempt to move, I made the action to take a step closer, I was beyond ecstasy again, but in a clean and pure form. Each step I took, I was giving a massive thank You God Almighty Father and was so joyful!
I then saw all the Saints, beyond number of a packed city, all excitedly running around and doing various tasks, all for our Father, in complete joy. There was a specific and special purpose for everyone, and everyone were all delighted to do anything possible for Father. I saw a little girl making what seemed to be a drawing on paper and folding it to a shape I don’t recognize and then excitedly running off toward the Father to gift it to Him. I saw another, an older male, working on a very intricate device what seemed electronic but had so many moving parts and things, and he kept wanting to add more and more to the design so it could please the Father. Each person was doing something to please the Father.
I then saw millions in a group, all praying and praising in song and dance. I looked to another area and saw another million were on their knees and lying flat in prayer and worship. I didn’t see much more than this as I was drawn closer.
I then had what I think was an Angel next to me which I didn’t see before. Very tall, like 15feet or so, translucent but super tough and strong looking. I couldn’t look up at the face and I heard a male voice spoke softly. I was instructed to go back to the physical, but I didn't want to go back. I just wanted to be closer to the Father, and to be there is all my desire.
I then learned that my physical time, is a one-time opportunity to be all and do all and manifest for Him and His Glory. That I need to do everything I can to honor and serve Him in this physical, for time is short and my opportunity to give all I can.
I was then brought out of the vision and felt that I really need to press into the Lord, and ask for prayer, and pray for anything for all. I was convicted to truly do my duty and seek His Kingdom. It was just as I was thinking this, I felt a wave of love and encouragement, as though He, our awesome Lord Jesus gave me a ‘nod’ of approval.
My dearest Brothers and Sisters, truly I mean this; He delights in us and loves us, He is with us and wants us to try and believe always. Bless you!
At the Time Of The Lord
Samuel Fire – 2022
I was in prayer and desiring to know who will be alive at the coming of The Lord. I then was taken into a vision where I heard all these surnames of some Brethren in local and outreach UBM being called out.
After each name, I saw those who I knew of that surname in UBM, walk out in a group with others who I think were their children. I looked over and saw them standing in brilliant white glowing amazing clothing and the area was a big green grassy field with giant trees and a river flowing nearby.
More of the names read out and each of these families were walking around into this area, meeting up together. I heard so many names and of people I didn't really remember and some I only had heard of online or in conversation.
Then I felt God draw my attention, as though His Holy Hand gently turned my head from seeing this, and to focus my attention on Him. I felt He meant for me to look only to Him as the time is yet to come.
Endure In Your Faith To The End
Have you ever received promises from God that you really desired but lost faith in because much time passed and there was much failure on your part to live up to your expectations and you think that is the reason that the promises won’t be fulfilled?
We have received many times by faith at random - Psa 102:13 Thou wilt arise, and have mercy upon Zion; For it is time to have pity upon her, Yea, the set time is come. (We are on the verge of many promises being fulfilled at this time and also to people who have failed to live up to what they thought they should have been. In all of your failure continue to be Justified by Faith and also forgive your fellow man their failures and believe now so the promises can come to pass.)
We are entering a season of fulfillment! We also received these verses by faith at random about NOW is the time. Isa 33:10 Now will I arise, saith Jehovah; now will I lift up myself; now will I be exalted. Psa 12:5 Because of the oppression of the poor, because of the sighing of the needy, Now will I arise, saith Jehovah; I will set him in the safety he panteth for.
It is now that we have no time for double mindedness because of past failures or sin. Forget the failures and inability of the past with its condemnation, be justified by faith, repent and believe.
Here is a perfect example of a man receiving an important promise but then went through much unbelief and failure and self-works in his uncircumcised heart but when the time came God reminded him of the promise and brought it to pass through his renewed faith.
Rom 4:1-10 What then shall we say that Abraham, our forefather, hath found according to the flesh? 2 For if Abraham was justified by works, he hath whereof to glory; but not toward God. (Like many of us, Abraham’s faith and works failed him for many years but when the set time was come it was impossible for him to bring it to pass by works of man. He and Sarah were too old and double minded. Jas 1:6 But let him ask in faith, nothing doubting: for he that doubteth is like the surge of the sea driven by the wind and tossed. 7 For let not that man think that he shall receive anything of the Lord. It was then that God reminded him of the promise and renewed his faith.) 3 For what saith the scripture? And Abraham believed God, and it was reckoned unto him for righteousness. And then the promise was fulfilled.
4 Now to him that worketh, the reward is not reckoned as of grace, but as of debt. (The answer can only come by Grace, which is unmerited and unearned by man’s works. Pray for mercy and grace by which faith will come.) 5 But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is reckoned for righteousness. (Up to this point Abraham was ungodly in his works to bring to pass the promises. Only the works of faith are considered righteous.)
6 Even as David also pronounceth blessing upon the man, unto whom God reckoneth righteousness apart from works (of man), 7 saying, Blessed are they whose iniquities are forgiven, And whose sins are covered. 8 Blessed is the man to whom the Lord will not reckon sin. (This grace through faith was given to a man who did not deserve it by his works.) 9 Is this blessing then pronounced upon the circumcision, or upon the uncircumcision also? for we say, To Abraham his faith was reckoned for righteousness. 10 How then was it reckoned? when he was in circumcision, or in uncircumcision? Not in circumcision, but in uncircumcision. (The promise was given when Abraham was sowing a seed of uncircumcised flesh. What can that get you? Ishmael. Abraham wanted God to accept him as the promised seed but God refused because his work was of the flesh of man.)
…17-25 (as it is written, A father of many nations have I made thee) before him whom he believed, even God, who giveth life to the dead, and calleth the things that are not, as though they were. (Abraham and Sarah were dead to any ability to bring forth the promised seed. We also are dead to any ability to bring forth the promised seed of Christ in you the hope of glory. Here is where we can receive the unmerited unearned favor of God. We cannot pick ourselves up by our bootstraps.)
18 Who in hope believed against hope (of man), to the end that he might become a father of many nations, according to that which had been spoken, So shall thy seed be. (Within the year of the fulfillment of the promise Abraham began to believe God by His grace; while ignoring his inability.) 19 And without being weakened in faith he considered his own body now as good as dead (he being about a hundred years old), and the deadness of Sarah's womb; 20 yet, looking unto the promise of God, he wavered not through unbelief, but waxed strong through faith, giving glory to God, 21 and being fully assured that what he had promised, he was able also to perform.
22 Wherefore also it was reckoned unto him for righteousness. (Since it was impossible for them to do this, there was only one other choice, believe God and be counted as righteous so he could have the promise. Rom 3:3-4 For what if some were without faith? shall their want of faith make of none effect the faithfulness of God? 4 God forbid: (It was in this state of unfaithfulness to God’s promise that Abraham and Sarah were to confess the promise and be justified in their words.) yea, let God be found true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified (Accounted as righteous) in thy words, And mightest prevail when thou comest into judgment. We prevail or overcome in Judgment when we confess the Lord’s promises with our Words. When we are accounted righteous, we are entitled to Faith, which is the victory that overcomes the world.
Back to Rom 4:23 Now it was not written for his sake alone, that it was reckoned unto him; 24 but for our sake also, unto whom it shall be reckoned, who believe on him that raised Jesus our Lord from the dead, 25 who was delivered up for our trespasses, and was raised for our justification. When Jesus died, we died; when he was resurrected, we received resurrection life.
Have you failed? Ask for faith through grace and confess the promises! Confess in Greek is Homo-Logeo, meaning to “speak the same as”. I.e. Say what God says about you and others.
Heb 3:1 Wherefore, holy brethren, partakers of a heavenly calling, consider the Apostle and High Priest of our confession, even Jesus; 4:14 Having then a great high priest, who hath passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession.
Jesus as our Hight Priest must have a sacrifice from us to give to the Father. Mat 10:32 Every one therefore who shall confess me before men, him will I also confess before my Father who is in heaven. Luk 12:8 And I say unto you, Every one who shall confess me before men, him shall the Son of man also confess before the angels of God: When we confess in agreement with God’s promises, the angels are given authority of Father and Son to fulfill our confession. Psa 103:20 Bless Jehovah, ye his angels, That are mighty in strength, that fulfil his word, Hearkening unto the voice of his word.
Heb 10:23 let us hold fast the confession of our hope that it waver not; for he is faithful that promised: 13:15 Through him then let us offer up a sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of lips which make confession to his name.
Speak life into every situation. Pro 18:21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue; And they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.
(Mar.11:23) Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou taken up and cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that what he saith cometh to pass; he shall have it. “Whosoever” shows that He wasn’t only talking to His disciples and apostles at that time, but that He was talking to all disciples because disciples are the only ones who will take Him seriously and recognize this authority as a gift of faith.
Again, Jesus was not only speaking to the apostles and disciples back in His time, but to anyone, from them to us, who believes he can have this authority. Is this just a silly statement that no one will ever really take Him up on? No! There have been many people who have commanded their personal mountains and giants out of the way. Multitudes of people have exercised this authority over Satan, over the flesh, over their circumstances and over the curse.
God is faithful to stand by His Word, not because we deserve it, but due to His mercy and grace. He has said, According to your faith be it done unto you (Mat.9:29) and Go thy way; as thou hast believed, [so] be it done unto thee (Mat.8:13). “Whosoever” includes you and me and any other believer, so this authority has been put in our hands as sons of the last Adam, and not only given to those disciples in Jesus’ day, as some say.
(Mar.16:14) And afterward he was manifested unto the eleven themselves as they sat at meat; and he upbraided them with their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they believed not them that had seen him after he was risen. (15) And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to the whole creation. (16) He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that disbelieveth shall be condemned. Jesus is referring to the disciples of the disciples. “Disciples” (Greek: mathetes, meaning “learner and follower”) are learners and followers of the Lord. He is our Master, our Lord, our Example, and He is the One Who does the works through us.
(Mar.16:17) And these signs shall accompany them that believe: in my name shall they cast out demons; they shall speak with new tongues; (18) they shall take up serpents, and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall in no wise hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover. Now we see that these signs will accompany those who simply believe and not only great apostles. That is authority! Jesus is giving authority to the people who believe these first disciples, or forefathers of Christianity, who wrote these pages to us. He has given us this authority to do good in the name of the Lord.
All principalities and powers have been put under Jesus (Matthew 28:18), even “his feet” and we are “his body” (Ephesians 1:20-23). We have this authority but it can be negative or positive. For example, when the Lord brought His people out of Egypt and into the wilderness, they continued to speak negatively and exercise their faith in a negative way. Faith is just what you believe. You can believe what God has spoken to you or you can believe the things which you see in the world, but Jesus said, According to your faith be it done unto you (Mat.9:29). Faith is both negative and positive. Even fear is faith; however, it’s faith in the curse, or faith in reverse – I.e. having faith in adverse circumstances and in the devil. The absolute proof in the world is that what people believe happens to them.
Doctors say that approximately 90% and higher of sicknesses are psychosomatic (Greek: psuche, meaning “soul” and soma, meaning “body”). This implies “soul over body” and your soul is your mind, will and emotions. Therefore, your mind, will and emotions are making your body sick. The doctors are wrong in stating that 90% and higher of sicknesses are psychosomatic. That number is 100%. What makes people sick is what they believe. In fact, what you believe can kill you. As we saw in Matthew 18:18, you are the one who binds and who loose, and you are the one who creates your own future. You are the one who gives authority to the devil or gives authority unto God. Jesus needed authority but when He went to His hometown, he did not many mighty works there because of their unbelief (Mat.13:58).
They had authority to say no to God and they did; they did not believe in Jesus and His Gospel. They believed in the sickness and the curse and they spoke it. We can believe in the blessings of God and speak the blessings or we can believe in the curse and speak the curse. We will have what we believe because that’s the Word of God. (Num.14:28) Say unto them, As I live, saith the Lord, surely as ye have spoken in mine ears, so will I do to you: (29) your dead bodies shall fall in this wilderness; and all that were numbered of you, according to your whole number, from twenty years old and upward, that have murmured against me. They complained to the Lord that they were brought out into the wilderness to die and the Lord heard this too many times. The Lord basically gave them what they said. The Lord still does this today and the Bible declares that He does.
One of the fruits of a believer is that they believe in their heart and confess with their mouth (Romans 10:10). There are many people who profess to be believers, yet don’t confess their benefits in Christ, so God says what you say is what you will receive. (Num.21:5) And the people spake against God, and against Moses, Wherefore have ye brought us up out of Egypt to die in the wilderness? for there is no bread, and there is no water; and our soul loatheth this light bread. What is “against God”? It’s when God has spoken these awesome promises and we think we know better and continue to agree with the curse.
For example, the 10 spies who spoke and agreed with the curse and brought the bad report led to the threats made by God to those who believed those spies. Joshua and Caleb were the only two who brought the good report, in agreement with God’s promises. So, speaking against God can be more subtle than what people might think. When God says you’re healed and you say you’re not, then you will remain sick. When God says He’s taken away your sins but you confess what you see and feel in the world, you are speaking against God.
(Num.21:6) And the Lord sent fiery serpents among the people, and they bit the people; and much people of Israel died. Once again, what they spoke is what they got. I believe the fiery serpents represent the curse. The cure for this was that God commanded Moses to make a “fiery serpent” out of brass and put it on a pole, and as people got their eyes on the serpent on the pole, they were healed (verse 8). As we know, the cure was Jesus Christ, since He was the One who was made sin and was crucified on a cross. So, we have a cure from the curse but we must confess God to receive this cure.
Those who profess Christianity but do not confess the benefits of the Kingdom, so that the curse, which was put upon Jesus, doesn’t come on them. We cannot gain the promises in Scripture without faith in those promises. Or, in other words, what we profess must be mixed with faith. (Num.21:7) And the people came to Moses, and said, We have sinned, because we have spoken against the Lord, and against thee; pray unto the Lord, that he take away the serpents from us. And Moses prayed for the people. When people pray, God is merciful, especially if they believe their prayers. But do you have to continue to live under the curse? Is it necessary, when you can agree with God, to have the “fiery serpents” bite you? These serpents are the curse manifested in so many ways. The serpent is, obviously, also the devil, who is a vessel of dishonor that administers the curse on God’s people, especially when they don’t believe the benefits of God.
Jesus told us, According to your faith be it done unto you (Mat.9:29) and Go thy way; as thou hast believed, [so] be it done unto thee (Mat.8:13). You can speak things into coming to pass. If you speak life, you receive life; if you speak death, you receive death. It depends on what you have your faith in. If your faith is in agreement with God’s benefits, then you receive those benefits. If you agree with what is in the world, then you don’t receive God’s benefits and have loosed the devil; you have loosed emissaries to continue to administer the curse on you. Many people are learning this and experiencing what I’m saying.
This is nothing new but is the same Gospel which is from the beginning. We have to have a renewed mind so that we understand what to believe and what we should speak. Faith can be both positive and negative. (Pro.18:20) A man’s belly shall be filled with the fruit of his mouth; With the increase of his lips shall he be satisfied. Would you like your needs to be met because of what you say? We would like our lips to come into agreement with the Word of God and learn more and more to walk in His benefits by confessing Him before men.
(Pro.18:21) Death and life are in the power of the tongue; And they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof. I remember back in Louisiana, where I came from, there was a church which had a visiting minister who was preaching about death and how it was not to be feared. I know the church and its circumstances and have been there. The minister was actually going to show them how simple it was to die. He pulled up a chair, sat down and said it was as simple as going to sleep. Then he nodded his head for an example. He stayed like that for a while, until the pastor, whom I know, got nervous and went up and touched him on his shoulder, and then shook him. He was gone. He talked himself right off of this earth. What was God showing with this example?
There are some people who talk themselves right into the grave. Many people die before their time because their faith is to die; their faith is to be cursed and to receive the things that are around them. Their faith is not in what the Lord Jesus has given to them freely. Truly, “death and life are in the power of the tongue.” This is God’s Word and nothing is being taken away or being added to it. We need to agree with God’s benefits to have them and God will supply your every need to do His will, if you learn to agree with Him.
The tongue doesn’t speak on its own. It gets its direction from your thoughts and the words that are in your mind. We need to watch our tongue so we can correct our mind. That’s one reason the Lord is telling us to be careful with what we say because when we are careful, we are correcting our thoughts. He tells us to be quick to hear and slow to speak. That’s why we have one tongue and two ears. (Mat.12:34) Ye offspring of vipers, how can ye, being evil speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh. If we want to speak good things, we need to put good things in our hearts and reject the other things that are there.
I am sure that your mouth has spoken things that have slipped out, that you wish you hadn’t said. It’s an automatic thing with some people, but we need to slow down and give the Lord time to correct our thinking. Good people speak good things and bad people speak bad things. In some ways, we are both since we are both son of man and son of God, but we also have authority over that part of us which is still man. The Son of God in us has authority over that man. As the outer man decays, the inner man is renewed day by day (2 Corinthians 4:16).
That spiritual man is taking over as we walk by faith and believe more and more of the Word of God and, as we do, more and more of Jesus Himself is being manifested in us and He is taking more and more ground from the enemy. (Mat.12:35) The good man out of his good treasure bringeth forth good things: and the evil man out of his evil treasure bringeth forth evil things. Those who get this revelation about the tongue spend much time talking about the tongue, but we must really begin with the heart. We have to repent – change our mind – and believe what the Bible says. Changing your mind and repenting is renewing your mind with what the Word says and agreeing with what it says, but we must do it enough so that it overcomes our natural thinking. Our natural thinking is what kills us and all those whose tongues are connected to their natural man.
(Mat.12:36) And I say unto you, that every idle (Greek: argos, meaning “unfruitful, barren”) word that men shall speak, they shall give account of in the day of judgment. The Lord obviously wants His Word to bear fruit in us, but there are many words that are unfruitful and don’t bear the fruit of Christ in us. Every idle word will bring judgment upon you. The day of judgment is not that day down the road, the corporate judgment, but it is the day of judgment that you come into. Your idle words, unfruitful or vain, will bring you into judgment.
Many people have spoken the curse upon themselves, like the Israelites did. They confessed continuously that they would die in the wilderness and it happened. (Mat.12:37) For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned. The words that justify are those words spoken in agreement with God. They are words confessing Jesus before God and men, saying what He said and agreeing with what He has taught us in the Word and also by what He put in the disciples to teach us in the Word.
We are accounted righteous, or justified, if we agree with God. But if we don’t agree, we fall under judgment, for “by thy words thou shalt be condemned.” If you disagree with God’s Word, it’s like calling Him a liar. God told the Israelites that He was going to bring them to the Promised Land and they basically claimed that God was a liar and that He brought them to the wilderness to die. They spoke it from their mouth and He finally said, “as ye have spoken in mine ears, so will I do to you.” There are a lot of people who don’t make it through the wilderness – what we call the “world” today. (Hos.4:6) My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge…. They agree with the curse and they receive the curse. It’s what they believe; it is their faith.
See Jesus in the mirror, all that he is is yours. 2Co 3:18 But we all, with unveiled face beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are transformed into the same image from glory to glory, even as from the Lord the Spirit.

David Eells – 8/6/23
A Good Word
Debbie Fenske 7/25/23 (David’s notes in red)
Blessings to you, brethren. I am sharing this word I received from the Lord early this morning.
“My daughter, pen My heart upon this page. These words from My heart are for you, My people. My word to you now, is this. Stay pure. Stay calm. Stay vigilant. Stay gentle in spirit. But you must be bold, and strong against your adversary, Satan, the devil, casting down his assault weapons of condemnation, doubt, and fear.
Know that your angels are there, and they fight for you. But you must use your armor against this wicked foe. Remain on guard, and stand against the distractions of the enemy, the world, and your flesh. For they are all one against you. They are all one enemy of your souls. They are one enemy against your brothers and your sisters. They are against you, because they are against Me who is in you. Yes, Your Greater One Is in you.
This is why you already know, and already confess the victory over each plan of the enemy. But some among you are weaker in their confession of what, and who they are in Me. (We are by faith Sons of the Living God given His authority to rule over the flash, the devil, and the world. The Strong man is bound and we are to plunder.) I hear their cries unto Me, their desire to be strong in their faith, and strong in the fight. As they are growing in the faith, hold your weapons high over them, for you are one with them. Every member must be protected, keeping their eyes on Me. (I.e. Protect with our faith those who are weak.)
I Am the one that allows your enemy to breakthrough past the angels so that you learn to fight, and resist, becoming stronger in confessing My Word in the spirit of great boldness and authority against the enemy, for yourselves, and for your brethren who are weaker. (Give no place to the enemy in our speech or actions.)
But I tell you this, they will not remain weak. They will grow in strength. And, I will, in this day, cause them to grow quickly, understanding how to handle their weapons of warfare against the enemy. So, in faith, you must see each battle won in victorious conquest.
Rise up! And be victorious over the war for your souls. Shout My name! Shout My name which is your banner. Stand, and be encouraged in what I tell you right now, that not one among you will be left lying on the battlefield. Fight for My great name, for yourselves, and for one another. I Am always your Sword, and I will always be your Strong Tower. Victory is yours through My great Name, for I Am your Great Reward. Keep awake, discerning, fighting. And through Me you will always attain the Victory. Rejoice that each battle has already been won!”
Keep The Cross Close To Your Heart
Marie Kelton 7/28/23 (David’s notes in red)
I had an open vision during the meeting where the Lord was sitting next to me, and He had a necklace with a cross on it. (The crucified walk.)(And our enemies were conquered at the cross) The Lord then put the necklace on me. The necklace was long enough to lie on top of my heart. The Lord spoke to me and said, "Keep this close to your heart".
Luk 9:23 And he said unto all, If any man would come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me. (Our cross is obedience to the Word in the midst of trials.)
Pro 4:20-21 My son, attend to my words; Incline thine ear unto my sayings. 21 Let them not depart from thine eyes; Keep them in the midst of thy heart.
Pro 6:20-21 My son, keep the commandment of thy father, And forsake not the law of thy mother: 21 Bind them continually upon thy heart; Tie them about thy neck.
Newer Heights of Praise and Worship
Debbie Fenske - 10/14/22
This morning on our Zoom scripture and prayer meeting, ...Father started speaking this Word to me:
"I am lifting you up into newer heights of praise and worship that even astounds the angels in heaven. This is the time where I am bringing My true people throughout the earth into newer heights of worship and praise of Me. This is one way My glory is going to fill the earth. For as My people worship and praise Me in the fullness of spirit and truth, the power of My Holy Spirit will fill you, and My glory will fill you, and will flow forth from you, even now, to restore and revive many of my own. So, My people, let My glory, and My power flow!” Amen! Thank you Father!
Anonymous 5/29/23 (David’s notes in red)
I experienced myself being up so very high and seated in the heavenlies in spiritual light. I saw many devils located way down beneath me. They were so very far down in darkness which seemed to have no end. I heard devils trying to call out to me, but I could barely hear what they were saying, because they were so far away. It sounded like they were saying things similar to the thoughts they try to give me. But for me to hear clearly what they were saying, I would have to leave my place up so high and go down lower. (If go low to hear the enemy we are in their territory of power.)
I saw how they are way below me and while I’m in Christ (in the Heavens) I have authority over them, and they literally have to obey me; they are literally under me. The enemy tried to give me fear of the unknown, which is just not trusting God. While I was experiencing all this, I knew that if I agreed with the fear of the unknown, I would be taken out of this place. But by trusting God I could stay in this high place in the Heavens. I had to not agree with the familiar thoughts and feelings of fear of the unknown. If I entertained it, I would be taken lower.
It seemed as though the devils were so far down that they couldn't see me properly, but they knew I was there and they would shoot arrows of thoughts and feelings to try and get me to look at them. (Don’t pay attention to their thoughts.) Sometimes the arrows would get me, and I would either choose to listen and agree with it or choose to ignore it. But most of the time they would shoot randomly and miss me because I was so high up and not fully in view. If I commanded the devils to be quiet, they had to obey straight away.
I saw that the flesh and enemy are always trying to take us out of this high place in the Heavens, by using thoughts, feelings, self-will, fear, and doubt, wanting to control us. We need to remember and know each moment God is in control and allow Him do what He wants, within us and outside of us. Only when we are in Him fully and completely aligned with His Word, will and Spirit do we have this full authority over the enemy. Submit to God and the devil must flee.
Eph 2:4-6 but God, being rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, 5 even when we were dead through our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace have ye been saved), 6 and raised us up with him, and made us to sit with him in the heavenly places, in Christ Jesus:
Luk 10:17-20 And the seventy returned with joy, saying, Lord, even the demons are subject unto us in thy name. 18 And he said unto them, I beheld Satan fallen as lightning from heaven. 19 Behold, I have given you authority to tread upon serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall in any wise hurt you. 20 Nevertheless in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rejoice that your names are written in heaven.
Eph 6:16 withal taking up the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the evil one.
Col 3:1-3 If then ye were raised together with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated on the right hand of God. 2 Set your mind on the things that are above, not on the things that are upon the earth. 3 For ye died, and your life is hid with Christ in God.
1Pe 5:8-9 Be sober, be watchful: your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour, 9 whom withstand stedfast in your faith, knowing that the same sufferings are accomplished in your brethren who are in the world.
Jas 4:7 Be subject therefore unto God; but resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
Word Of God A Flame Of Fire
Marie Kelton 7/28/23 (David’s notes in red)
During the meeting, I was dealing with anxiety. I told the Lord about the anxiety. I then had an open vision. The Lord was sitting next to me. I saw in the palm of the Lord's hand was a bible and the bible was on fire. I looked up at the Lord and His eyes were a flame of fire. The Lord opened the bible and the scriptures in the bible were on fire also. Then, the Lord said, “The scriptures burn up the wood, hay, and stubble.” (Rom_12:2 And be not fashioned according to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind (with the Word who is Jesus), that ye may prove what is the good and acceptable and perfect will of God.)
(Dealing with anxiety and other fleshy emotions, are the trials and temptations we go through in order to overcome them by applying faith in the promises of the Word of God. Php 4:6 In nothing be anxious; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. We give thanks to God with our requests, because He has already delivered us from these temptations.)
1Co 3:11-13 For other foundation can no man lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ. 12 But if any man buildeth on the foundation gold, silver, costly stones, wood, hay, stubble; (The thoughts, ideas, and works of the old life, which many never reject.) 13 each man's work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it is revealed in fire; and the fire itself shall prove each man's work of what sort it is. (The fiery trial will conquer the wood, hay, and stubble if we repent and believe the Word.)
Then I heard or thought, “The Word of the Lord is a flame of fire.”
I asked the Lord what was the fire that covered the bible. The Lord said, "It is the fire of the Holy Spirit."
Mat 3:11-12 I indeed baptize you in water unto repentance: but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you in the Holy Spirit and in fire: 12 whose fan is in his hand, and he will thoroughly cleanse his threshing-floor; and he will gather his wheat into the garner, but the chaff he will burn up with unquenchable fire.
Entering Into The Rest
Winnie Osegueda 8/30/21 (David’s notes in red)
I dreamed I got dressed to go outside in my favorite comfortable gray dress. (Gray in this case represents death to self. We need to be comfortable in the death of the old man.) It was a beautiful and bright sunny day outside and I heard David pull up in the blue truck that him and Michael drive in often. David was wearing a denim jacket with patchwork of different colors, (Like Joseph’s coat of many colors representing the different attributed of the light of the Lord. This represents putting on by faith these works.) and he came to talk to and give something to Chuc. (Chuck means to throw away or discard. In our trials we give up the old man and his ways and we put on the new man of Christ and His ways.)
Angelica and Marie were also outside, and Angelica had a little boy with her, maybe about 8 or 9 years of age. (Representing her personal Man-child of “Christ in you the hope of glory”.) We had a couple of swings in our front yard for Zoe´ to swing on. Zoe´ brought out a comfortable teal chair that I keep in the bedroom of our house, and she hooked it onto the middle of her other swings, so that I could swing as well. (Zoe represents God’s Life who will give the rest of the chair. The chair represents being seated in heavenly places with Him.)
Marie and Angelica wanted to try and swing on the teal swing chair, but the weight limit was below our weights, so I said that we couldn't do that. I told them that I was able to get on it before, but now I needed to get some weight off. (Too much weight or flesh will not allow us to be seated in heavenly places and you cannot enjoy or enter into the rest of faith.)
In another scene, I was in a car and Chuc was driving. I was turned around and I was observing from the back window and saw a man driving a red pick-up truck directly behind us, but also on our right. (This represents looking behind to see that the gifts were already given to us at the Cross. The man in the truck could represent Jesus. Red is for blood.)
The man in the truck threw some butterflies into the air as gifts, but I wasn't certain that they were real. Some of the butterflies were hanging on a string, three in a row. (The gifts of butterflies represent freedom and the new Life we have in Christ. Winnie, not knowing if the butterflies were real, is walking by sight and the perception of spiritual things are not clear. If we are seeing in the natural, the promises don't seem real to us. The three butterflies hanging on a string, could represent spirit, soul and body salvation.)
Some of the butterflies landed high up in a tree and I was sad because I thought I couldn't reach it, but then I saw a little girl reach them. (We believe we can't reach them, but we need child-like faith.)
I then remembered Angelica had put some butterflies away for me inside a blender cup I have that I use to make fruit smoothies. (The Angels preserve our Butterflies representing our born again fruit.) It was hanging right over my teal chair swing in my front yard. I thought I couldn't reach it, but I was able to. (Because that chair speaks of resting in the heavenly places by faith.) I opened the cup and there were different kinds of yellow and black butterflies that reminded me of Swallowtails. Some of the butterflies were yellow with stripes, some had few stripes, and some had no stripes at all. (The Lord is using a play on words here. Angelica put the butterflies in Winnie's cup because in essence we have to ‘swallow’ the promises by drinking the water of the Word. Swallowtails represent the grace and free nature of the soul. Through Jesus, God gave us freely the grace to be set free and fly. They are reachable when we reach out by faith to take them.)
I asked the Lord for a verse for this dream and received, Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in Jehovah with all thy heart, And lean not upon thine own understanding: 6 In all thy ways acknowledge him, And he will direct thy paths. (Don't only believe when we see, but by faith in what God has said.)
Cleansed His Way
Samuel Fire 5/9/23 (David’s notes in red)
I heard in prayer: “So much now is being overcome by the breaking of all strongholds and learning to hold the new life and ground. The false feelings you have, are the reactions and attacks in the spiritual through witchcraft. Everything you feel is bodily. The flesh feels, but the Spirit is fire.” (I was reminded of the wood hay and stubble how it burns in the fire, and then shown that the trees and plants would scream if they had feelings. Then when you do physical exercise or have attacks etc., this is the same in relation, but never lasts longer than God's love. His love lasts forever. Then I was reminded that God wants us to have the purest, finest gold and the perfect place for eternity with Him. He wants us, not the stuff that has been wrapped around us like a candy bar wrapper.)
“Remember the good and refrain from the ways of the bad. What may be good once, can be bad later.” (I saw an apple was fresh and ripe, when left alone would eventually rot.)
“The focus on Me was to teach many. As soon as self is led, corruption caused wickedness to remain. Remember to do good and set fire to evil.” (I was reminded how even Lot's wife’s name is not mentioned. Nor was Job's wife named. Our attention is to the righteous. We are to give Glory and Praise in the Lord for what He said is good.)
(I then saw myself entering an area which is covered in darkness and evil. It would try to stick to me and attack me. I saw myself using a clean sponge to wipe a wall, and the area was cleaner, but the sponge now needed cleaning.) (Then you can throw it in the fire.)
“Return to Me. Have the flame never go out. It has spread and will burn. Your duties are simply to pray and praise. I will show you more.” (I felt this may be for just myself as everyone has different roles in the Body of Christ. I also felt the Word is to be spoken, because that always pleases God. (And brings the Word to pass.) I saw a buffing pad polishing something metallic that was already very beautiful. The shine afterwards was so intense that looked like it was glowing.) (Getting rid of the last impurities so the shine comes through.)
“Always be speaking the truth. (The Word) Keep reading and declaring promises.” (His promises cannot be negated.)
“To remove the hardest and worst hurts from the past, takes the longest time. Persevere. (Shine) When you restrict the body, I Am closer. Break and remove the strongholds. Declare the victory. Rely on the promises in My Son. See the end. Imagine and picture (and speak) the victory.” (I saw singing Holy Angels and worship with the words ‘Holy, Holy, Holy’.)
A Holy Vessel
Anonymous 1/3/23 (David’s notes in red)
I heard in prayer: “No matter where you are, there is a deep darkness. (There is always darkness trying to overwhelm and take over. Consume the light of the Word and shine.) Isa 60:1-2 Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of Jehovah is risen upon thee. 2 For, behold, darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the peoples; but Jehovah will arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee.

Draw Deeper Into God
Samuel Fire 4/13/23
I was seeking the Lord regarding why it hurts when we seek Him more than we have before and why do we feel a type of fear when going deeper and deeper into God’s presence.
I heard: “Because nothing can completely handle My presence. They all have to be recreated as My Son or that aspect must fall before Me. I am making a wonderful work in you all, and these are great times for you. To share and hold onto each other, and to rely completely on Me and My Promise. Keep your focus and love. Do not let go of your deepest desire.
There is some hurt and old self that cannot be in My Holiness and Kingdom. (I felt something like the deeper we go, the harder it is to get closer. Then I saw a person trying to swim underwater but had to breathe out because of the air held in them would cause them to float up. But in order to stay submerged and go to the deepest depths with God, one would need to be completely dead to self and only have Jesus in control and Lord of their life.)
Be the loving example of My Word. Press into the perfect place of Me. Keep on focusing on Me. Read and pray. Be helpful to each other in assistance. Help each other on the words spoken and agreement.
No one is doing worse off than the price paid by My Son. Do not compare. Do not rejoice on the enemy’s defeat, but be concerned over the walk you and others are doing.
Draw deeper into Me and want to do with Me all the great things I have set for you.
Learn to have no ability to do anything by self. That everything is already done in Christ. I have said and it is now just a time to be deeper in the revelation of My Love for you. (I felt that we just need to let go. Stop. And believe. So hard to do, but just think and speak it. Especially in the trials.)
Do not worry. Everything is done. You have not have to worry about it at all. (I felt that we need to praise God, to speak out what is His love to us and to receive it as though we already have it.)
The enemy is always attacking and lying to you every moment. The world is always trying to distract you and trying to get in the way of you and Me. The enemy and flesh try to use your hurt and old memories to separate us. But you need to give all these to Me, and when you read and apply My Word in Truth and Love, I Am accepted and connected to you. When it is difficult, give to Me attention and prayer. Praise Me for I am the final answer and solution.”
Vanessa Weeks 1/15/23 (David’s notes in red)
In a dream I was in a small store or house that had many knickknacks. These were on tables and organized together in different parts of the room.
There was also a large and sturdy old book that had many drawings depicting the stories told in the book. It was a special book with gold on the four corners of the cover. (Word of God?) I was looking at this book and then I saw a couple of children sitting on the floor looking at it.
I saw a white crocheted owl. (An owl to me means wisdom.) Pro 3:13 Happy is the man that findeth wisdom, And the man that getteth understanding. 14 For the gaining of it is better than the gaining of silver, And the profit thereof than fine gold. 15 She is more precious than rubies: And none of the things thou canst desire are to be compared unto her. 16 Length of days is in her right hand; In her left hand are riches and honor. 17 Her ways are ways of pleasantness, And all her paths are peace. 18 She is a tree of life to them that lay hold upon her: And happy is every one that retaineth her.
I took the owl with my right hand and put it in a blue picture frame. (Picture of wisdom Pro 23:23 Buy truth, and do not sell it, Get wisdom and instruction and understanding.) (Barry: I think this would involve praying for it in faith, searching God's word for it, but also humility and a willingness to live by it.) I gave this owl in the blue picture frame to a young lady who was to my right, (where Jesus put the sheep) who was wearing a red shirt. (She is washed in the blood of Christ. After I woke up I thought that this lady was Gabby.) I gave it to her for her birthday. (Gabby means God is my strength.)
Then after I got home, I began to feel guilty because I realized that I had taken the owl without asking or paying for it. I was repenting and asking the Lord to forgive me. But I did not know how to make it right because I gave the owl to Gabby and did not think I could take it back to return it to the owner. Then I woke up.
After I woke up, I realized this owl is the same as Zoe's crocheted owl in real life. Owls to me represent wisdom so I believe it represents wisdom of the life of God.
I received by faith at random for this dream Dan 5:16. In context v. 13-16. Dan 5:13-16 Then was Daniel brought in before the king. The king spake and said unto Daniel, Art thou that Daniel, who art of the children of the captivity of Judah, whom the king my father brought out of Judah? 14 I have heard of thee, that the spirit of the gods is in thee, and that light and understanding and excellent wisdom are found in thee.
15 And now the wise men, the enchanters, have been brought in before me, that they should read this writing, and make known unto me the interpretation thereof; but they could not show the interpretation of the thing. 16 But I have heard of thee, that thou canst give interpretations, and dissolve doubts; now if thou canst read the writing, and make known to me the interpretation thereof, thou shalt be clothed with purple, and have a chain of gold about thy neck, and shalt be the third ruler in the kingdom.
Also, I asked the Lord about the feeling of guilt I had in the dream and received by faith at random Pro 28:15. In context vs. 13-15. Pro 28:13 He that covereth his transgressions shall not prosper: But whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall obtain mercy. 14 Happy is the man that feareth alway; But he that hardeneth his heart shall fall into mischief. 15 As a roaring lion, and a ranging bear, So is a wicked ruler over a poor people.
I believe the Lord is saying to me by this verse and dream to pay the price for wisdom. And He has given me grace to confess and forsake my sin. Job 28:12-13 But where shall wisdom be found? And where is the place of understanding? 13 Man knoweth not the price thereof; Neither is it found in the land of the living. And verse 28 And unto man he said, Behold, the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom; And to depart from evil is understanding.
Father, thank you for showing us the price of wisdom. Please give us grace to fear you and depart from evil and in faith receive your wisdom in Jesus name, amen.
Taking From The Enemies Camp
Tianna Fire 6/10/23 (David’s notes in red)
I dreamt that I was living with a community of Brethren, but we didn't live in a specific spot, but we traveled around all the time and everything we had was physically light and God provided all our needs. (Be not attached to worldly physical things but anchored in the Lord.)
At this point the Lord had led us all to travel to a different town, and to get there we had to walk along a beach side for a few days. We slept under the stars and God provided food without us doing anything, but walking where He wanted. (Rest in Him, no matter the situation, He is our covering.)
After a few days we got to this place that was on the left side of the beach in a forest. It was evening and the sun was almost completely down but the town had so many different colored lights and different loud sounds coming from it. (It kind of reminded me of "vanity fair" from Pilgrims Progress.) At this place there were some theme park rides and many different buildings with different activities. The sounds were so loud and there was festival music and much laughter and it was extremely worldly. (The Lord has called us out of the world to be separate from it and not get distracted by the lust of the fleshly things in the world.)
Before we went in, we prayed and God told us that there would be many Satanists in there, but there were things in there that were stolen from us and we were to walk into the areas God said, to grab what belonged to us, and then we could all leave. We all had a different task and a different area to go inside. We all went in pairs, and I was with a sister. NENT Luk 10:1-3 Now after these things the Lord appointed seventy others, and sent them two and two before his face into every city and place, whither he himself was about to come. 2 And he said unto them, The harvest indeed is plenteous, but the laborers few: pray therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he send forth laborers into his harvest. 3 Go. Lo, I send you forth as lambs amidst wolves.
Luk 10:19 Lo, I have given you the authority to tread upon serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall in any wise hurt you.
As we walked inside the festival there were many people all around and there were many famous actors, witches, musicians and other known people in the world. There were also a lot of people I had never seen before in real life. The Lord had revealed to me that witches and others that illegally access the spiritual realm can see Jesus in me and they know who I am when in public, so we stick out like a sore thumb. Also the demons in others are aware of Jesus in us and I can see that they recognize Christ in me.
So, in the dream I asked God to not allow any of the witches or demons to be able to see that Jesus is in us, so that we don’t stick out, but for us to be hidden and not noticeable to the demons and witches. And praise God He did exactly that! He either made us invisible to everyone or He made us just look like normal people, but the enemy couldn't see us. (He can do the supernatural and keep us hidden in the natural. Mar 11:24 Therefore I say unto you, All things whatsoever ye pray and ask for, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.
Psa 32:7 Thou art my hiding-place; thou wilt preserve me from trouble; Thou wilt compass me about with songs of deliverance. Selah.)
So we were all able to easily go to the area to get what we needed without being noticed. Two brothers went into a maze area that was filled with all different types of mirrors, and what was theirs was in the center of the maze. (To see themselves as Jesus – beyond the natural, and the reward is at the end.) 2Co 3:18 But we all, with unveiled face beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are transformed into the same image from glory to glory, even as from the Lord the Spirit.
Another couple had to go to the music area. (Music when sung or listened to, can lift our spirits.)
Another went to a party area where everyone was drinking and dancing and others had to go on a rollercoaster and the spinning swings ride. (This represents idolatry to the world where we are tempted by the world, the lust of the eyes and the lust of the flesh.) (Temptations come in the 5 senses [5 Kings Joshua ref?].)
1Co 10:6-7 Now these things were our examples, to the intent we should not lust after evil things, as they also lusted. 7 Neither be ye idolaters, as were some of them; as it is written, The people sat down to eat and drink, and rose up to play. (Many will be tempted to do this in these days. They will cease to be stewards and instead claim ownership of what is God’s.)
1Jn 2:15-17 Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh and the lust of the eyes and the vainglory of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. 17 And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.
The sister and I went into an escape room that was connected to a playground. (An escape room is where someone is locked into it, to play a game requiring them to solve a series of puzzles within a certain amount of time to accomplish a goal, typically finding a key to leave the room. They will have to race against the clock and decipher clues to find their way out of the room.)
There was a line up to go through this with many people behind us and in front of us. Only one person could go into an escape room at a time and we had to wait in the playground area for our turn. Once the person was done with the first escape room they would go into another line up for the next escape room, and there were 10 escape rooms. (The number 10 symbolizes perfect and completeness. It is also symbolic of the 10 commandments (the Law) given to Moses.)
It was made known that the majority of people that go in will not get through many rooms, so they quit and leave, but those that did get further into the escape rooms mostly died. (We must lose our life in the world to have the life of Christ. We continue in the faith and press on to the high calling of God in Christ, and each of us must manifest our own death to self. Not everyone is able to continue, many give up and go back to the world.)
Mat 22:14 For many are called, but few chosen. Mat 10:22 And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake: but he that endureth to the end, the same shall be saved.
Mat 16:24-25 Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man would come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. 25 For whosoever would save his life shall lose it: and whosoever shall lose his life for my sake shall find it.
When it was finally our turn, I went in first and the sister went in behind me. There were many people in front of me that couldn't get out of the escape room so they would get dragged out by whoever was running this place. By God's grace and His help, he got me through the first 5 escape rooms. (Five is the number of grace.) When I was in the fifth escape room, God told me that by witchcraft they had been putting a plastic bag into my mouth for each room I went into, without me knowing and their goal was to choke out everyone before they could get to the tenth room. (So they could not partake of the breath of the Spirit) The item we wanted was in the tenth room, but they didn't want anyone to get there, so they would kill off or take out everyone they could before they got there.
(This could mean restricting the move of the Holy Spirit, stopping their ability to breathe or spiritual discernment. They use witchcraft to suffocate, or “choke” people. A spiritual death to take us out so we don’t receive all the Lord has for us and reach completion, and in this dream, taking back what they came for.) Mar 4:19 and the cares of the world, and the deceitfulness of riches, and the lusts of other things entering in, choke the word, and it becometh unfruitful. (Some of the women captured by the satanists will overcome and escape when the principality in the leaders die and their power over them is broken. Some may not be chosen and would not escape.)
I went to a mirror that was in the room and I opened my mouth and there were 5 plastic bags in the colors of grey and blue. (A person begins to turn blue or grey when they are suffocating and there is not enough oxygen in the blood. Blue and grey represents death by suffocation.) I took them all out and everything was well. The Lord showed me how to get out of this escape room and then I went into the waiting hallway to get into the sixth escape room. There was no one else there, but I wanted to wait there so I could tell the sister behind me about the plastic bags. The walls in this area were lime green. (Lime green could represent “freshness or being refreshed in the Spirit” after being saved from a death assignment.)
The sister came out and I told her about the plastic bags and she pulled them out of her mouth too and we continued on to the next escape rooms. After each room we would take the plastic bag out of our mouth and it was supernatural how it even got into our mouth. (We share with our brethren the revelations given us from the Lord so they can learn and also be free from the traps of the enemy and continue going forward in Christ.)
I was able to get to the last escape room, and I know it was only through God's grace as He gave me the wisdom, understanding and knowledge to get through each escape room. (Any could contact us for this wisdom and knowledge. When they die out to the principality over their personal stupid demons they will lose power and their conscience and knowledge will return and they will escape.)
When I got to the tenth escape room, I was able to get the item that belonged to us and leave unnoticed just as we prayed. The evil people had cameras set up everywhere so, naturally, they would have seen and known I was in there and had obtained the item. Normally demons see Who Jesus is in in the spiritual realm, but the other brethren and I were completely hidden physically and spiritually. (Pray for the escapees to be hidden in Christ.)
The sister I was with was waiting outside as she had quit a few rooms ago because she had listened to fear, but she repented and got out. We then left to go back to the beach to meet with the other brethren.
On the way out, a brother who had started with us was socializing with some people at the party and it was then made known to us that he had taken interest in the worldly pleasures and people. (The lure of lust in the satanist camp captures many.) This brother then became visible to them and to the enemy, so the enemy captured him. We just prayed and left and were later reunited with the brethren that stayed in agreement with the Word and hidden in Christ.
We learned that there were a few others that got stuck in this town in the party with these evil people. We knew there wasn't anything we could do but pray for them. Because if we went back to speak to them, we would become visible to them and to the enemy, but we wanted to stay hidden in Christ. (Pray for our brethren who have been taken captive to the deceitfulness of this world. Keep in faith. Allow the Lord to do His amazing work of grace!) NENT Col 4:12 Epaphras who is one of you, bondman of Christ Jesus, greets you, always striving for you in his prayers, that ye may stand perfect and fully assured in all of God’s will.
Jas 5:15-16 and the prayer of faith shall save the weary one, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, it shall be forgiven him. 16 Confess therefore your sins one to another, and pray one for another, that ye be healed. The supplication of a righteous man availeth much in its working.
Heb 7:25 Whence also he is able to save to the uttermost them that approach God through him, he ever living to make intercession for them.
All of us that got out of the place, were able to get all the items back that belonged to us and we continued walking along the beach to go to the next place God wanted us to go to.
Believe And Confess The Word
Many want sanctification or healing or deliverance or provision, etc. And the demons are constantly trying to talk you out of these things and more using as ammunition, your many problems, mistakes, failures, etc. But Jesus gave His gifts unto many imperfect people who were their own worst enemies.
He even gave these things to people who were willfully disobedient to confirm His Word; however, they did not, in some way, escape the judgment for this kind of sin for that is the Word too. Joh 5:14 Afterward Jesus findeth him in the temple, and said unto him, Behold, thou art made whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing befall thee.
We received this text by faith at random. Heb 6:11-19 And we desire that each one of you may show the same diligence unto the fulness of hope even to the end: 12 that ye be not sluggish, but imitators of them who through faith and patience inherit the promises. 13 For when God made promise to Abraham (Who was in the flesh and trying to save himself.), since he could swear by none greater, he sware by himself, 14 saying, Surely blessing I will bless thee, and multiplying I will multiply thee. 15 And thus, having patiently endured, he obtained the promise. (This could be true of any and all promises to you.)
16 For men swear by the greater: and in every dispute of theirs the oath is final for confirmation. 17 Wherein God, being minded to show more abundantly unto the heirs of the promise the immutability (This word means unchangeableness) of his counsel, interposed with an oath; 18 that by two immutable (or unchangeable) things, in which it is impossible for God to lie, (The two unchangeable things He cannot lie about is any promise He made to you and on top of that His oath promise.) we may have a strong encouragement, who have fled for refuge to lay hold of the hope set before us: (He did this to show you He will not break His promises so you can be encouraged to believe them. The demons will try to give you many reasons to not believe they are for you.)
19 which we have as an anchor of the soul, a hope both sure and stedfast and entering into that which is within the veil. (This anchor of your souls is so you won't be thrown about by every lie of the demons. God will keep His Word to you.)
Heb 13:8 Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and to-day, (yea) and for ever. (He is unchangeable concerning His promises. Religions all have a changeable God who cannot be trusted. I.e. He made an eternal covenant, but you can't be sure He will heal the sick or save from sin, demons, or lack anymore so you can’t have faith. What else would the devil have you believe? Come out from among them!)
Psa 119:86-93 All thy commandments are faithful: They persecute me wrongfully; help thou me. 87 They had almost consumed me upon earth (God’s people are being devoured by the curse and the demons love it but here is the cure.); But I forsook not thy precepts. 88 Quicken (This word means “make alive”) me after thy lovingkindness; So shall I observe the testimony of thy mouth. 89 LAMEDH. For ever, O Jehovah, Thy word is settled in heaven. (Father says its unchangeable so you can believe it today.) 90 Thy faithfulness is unto all generations: (I.e. we have the same promises that were given back then.) Thou hast established the earth, and it abideth.
91 They abide this day according to thine ordinances; For all things are thy servants. (Notice: Everything serves God so nothing can stop Him from answering your faith and prayers.)92 Unless thy law had been my delight, I should then have perished in mine affliction. (Pro 10:21 The lips of the righteous feed many; But the foolish die for lack of understanding. Hos 4:6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I also will forget thy children.)
93 I will never forget thy precepts; For with them thou hast quickened me (I.e. made me alive). … 128 Therefore I esteem all thy precepts concerning all things to be right; And I hate every false way. (So “By whose stripes ye were healed” and “He made you free from sin” and He “delivered you out of the power of darkness” and He “gave you authority over all the power of the enemy and nothing shall in any wise hurt you.”)
Joh 12:48 He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my sayings, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I spake, the same shall judge him in the last day. …50 And I know that his commandment is life eternal: the things therefore which I speak, even as the Father hath said unto me, so I speak.
1Ki 8:56 Blessed be Jehovah, that hath given rest unto his people Israel, according to all that he promised: there hath not failed one word of all his good promise, which he promised by Moses his servant. And we “have a better covenant based on better promises”.
Psa 89:34 My covenant will I not break, Nor alter the thing that is gone out of my lips. (Since we are dependent on the promises for the abundant life, those who change them are under the curse even as they bring others under the curse. Rev 22:18 I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto them, God shall add unto him the plagues which are written in this book: 19 and if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part from the tree of life, and out of the holy city, which are written in this book.)
Psa 138:2 I will worship toward thy holy temple, And give thanks unto thy name for thy lovingkindness and for thy truth: For thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name. (God’s promises and commands are more important to us than even His name.)
Rom 3:3 For what if some were without faith? (Man may break the covenant but God doesn't.) shall their want of faith make of none effect the faithfulness of God? (God will be faithful to all who repent and believe and sometimes they don’t even know they need to repent of something.) 4 God forbid: yea, let God be found true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy words, And mightest prevail when thou comest into judgment. (We must agree with the Word so we may be accounted as righteous so we can have God’s benefits and overcome when in tribulation.)
Promises are Conditional
Mat 10:32 Every one therefore who shall confess (Homo Logeo means to “speak the same as” meaning agree with the Word. Are you healed? Say it! Are you saved from sin? Say it! Are you free of demons? Say it! Are you provided for? Say it! Many will come to try to get you to agree with what you see with your eyes rather than what you see in the book.) who shall confess me before men, him will I also confess before my Father who is in heaven. 33 But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father who is in heaven. (If we walk and talk by sight to please men we will miss His benefits.)
Luk 12:8 And I say unto you, Everyone who shall confess me before men, him shall the Son of man also confess before the angels of God: 9 but he that denieth me in the presence of men shall be denied in the presence of the angels of God. (Angels will take their que from your words and actions of faith and it is they who minister God’s salvation to you.)
Heb 4:14 Having then a great high priest, who hath passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession. Heb 10:23 let us hold fast the confession of our hope that it waver not; for he is faithful that promised:
2Co 1:18-20 But as God is faithful, our word toward you is not yea and nay. (God is not fickle as the religions say; He stands behind His Word.) 19 For the Son of God, Jesus Christ, who was preached among you by us, even by me and Silvanus and Timothy, was not yea and nay, but in him is yea. (He is not yes and no about His promises; He is YES!) 20 For how many soever be the promises of God, in him is the yea: wherefore also through him is the Amen (meaning when we agree), unto the glory of God through us.
Mat 8:1-10 And when he was come down from the mountain, great multitudes followed him. 2 And behold, there came to him a leper and worshipped him, saying, Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean. 3 And he stretched forth his hand, and touched him, saying, I will; be thou made clean. (Jesus is willing to heal and deliver.) And straightway his leprosy was cleansed. 4 And Jesus saith unto him, See thou tell no man; but go, show thyself to the priest, and offer the gift that Moses commanded, for a testimony unto them.
5 And when he was entered into Capernaum, there came unto him a centurion, beseeching him, 6 and saying, Lord, my servant lieth in the house sick of the palsy, grievously tormented. 7 And he saith unto him, I will come and heal him. 8 And the centurion answered and said, Lord, I am not worthy that thou shouldest come under my roof; (God gives grace to the humble but He resists the proud.) but only say the word, and my servant shall be healed. 9 For I also am a man under authority, having under myself soldiers: and I say to this one, Go, and he goeth; and to another, Come, and he cometh; and to my servant, Do this, and he doeth it. (He knew more than God’s people, that Jesus’ Word was supreme authority over the curse.) 10 And when Jesus heard it, he marvelled, and said to them that followed, Verily I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel.
Mar 5:22-42 And there cometh one of the rulers of the synagogue, Jairus by name; and seeing him, he falleth at his feet, 23 and beseecheth him much, saying, My little daughter is at the point of death: I pray thee, that thou come and lay thy hands on her, that she may be made whole, and live. (He had faith in Jesus to make her live.) 24 And he went with him; and a great multitude followed him, and they thronged him.
25 And a woman, who had an issue of blood twelve years, 26 and had suffered many things of many physicians, and had spent all that she had, and was nothing bettered, but rather grew worse, 27 having heard the things concerning Jesus, came in the crowd behind, and touched his garment. 28 For she said, If I touch but his garments, I shall be made whole. (She spoke to the mountain and did not doubt so she got what she said as Mark said. Mar 11:23-24 Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou taken up and cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that what he saith cometh to pass; he shall have it. 24 Therefore I say unto you, All things whatsoever ye pray and ask for, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.)
Back to our text: Mar 5:29 And straightway the fountain of her blood was dried up; and she felt in her body that she was healed of her plague. 30 And straightway Jesus, perceiving in himself that the power proceeding from him had gone forth, turned him about in the crowd, and said, Who touched my garments? (Notice it was not a matter of whether God willed this healing or not for Jesus didn’t even know it until it happened. It was a matter of faith and confession as we are told.)
31 And his disciples said unto him, Thou seest the multitude thronging thee, and sayest thou, Who touched me? 32 And he looked round about to see her that had done this thing. 33 But the woman fearing and trembling, knowing what had been done to her, came and fell down before him, and told him all the truth. 34 And he said unto her, Daughter, thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace, and be whole of thy plague.
35 While he yet spake, they come from the ruler of the synagogue's house saying, Thy daughter is dead: why troublest thou the Teacher any further? 36 But Jesus, not heeding the word spoken, saith unto the ruler of the synagogue, Fear not, only believe. (I.e. Do not pay attention to what man or devil says. It’s never too late Jesus still resurrects the dead. I am a witness.) 37 And he suffered no man to follow with him, save Peter, and James, and John the brother of James. 38 And they come to the house of the ruler of the synagogue; and he beholdeth a tumult, and many weeping and wailing greatly.
39 And when he was entered in, he saith unto them, Why make ye a tumult, and weep? the child is not dead, but sleepeth. (A spoken Word of faith.) 40 And they laughed him to scorn. But he, having put them all forth, taketh the father of the child and her mother and them that were with him, and goeth in where the child was. 41 And taking the child by the hand, he saith unto her, Talitha cumi; which is, being interpreted, Damsel, I say unto thee, Arise. (Another spoken Word of faith.) 42 And straightway the damsel rose up, and walked; for she was twelve years old. And they were amazed straightway with a great amazement.
Mat 15:22-31 And behold, a Canaanitish woman came out from those borders, and cried, saying, Have mercy on me, O Lord, thou son of David; my daughter is grievously vexed with a demon. 23 But he answered her not a word. (Testing her faith with silence.) And his disciples came and besought him, saying, Send her away; for she crieth after us. (They mistook His silence as an unwillingness to deliver.) 24 But he answered and said, I was not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel. (Another test that she was not qualified. Many hear this. Faith is the qualification. Some have more than God’s people.)
25 But she came and worshipped him, saying, Lord, help me. 26 And he answered and said, It is not meet to take the children's bread and cast it to the dogs. (Again the test of You are not qualified but like Naaman the Syrian all that is needed is actions of faith to be a believer.) 27 But she said, Yea, Lord: for even the dogs eat of the crumbs which fall from their masters' table. (Humility brings grace, pride brings disgrace.) 28 Then Jesus answered and said unto her, O woman, great is thy faith: be it done unto thee even as thou wilt. And her daughter was healed from that hour.
29 And Jesus departed thence, and came nigh unto the sea of Galilee; and he went up into the mountain, and sat there. 30 And there came unto him great multitudes, having with them the lame, blind, dumb, maimed, and many others, and they cast them down at his feet; and he healed them: 31 insomuch that the multitude wondered, when they saw the dumb speaking, the maimed whole, and the lame walking, and the blind seeing: and they glorified the God of Israel.
(In any “great multitude” even of God’s people, there are sinners of every kind but this was not the problem. It was their faith to bring the sick to Jesus because they heard and saw that He healed and delivered. More blessed are they who do not see and yet believe. And they glorified God to everyone and themselves. They were never the same.)
Mat 4:24 And the report of him went forth into all Syria: and they brought unto him all that were sick, holden with divers diseases and torments, possessed with demons, and epileptic, and palsied; and he healed them.
Mat 12:15 And Jesus perceiving it withdrew from thence: and many followed him; and he healed them all.
Luk 6:17-19 and he came down with them, and stood on a level place, and a great multitude of his disciples, and a great number of the people from all Judaea and Jerusalem, and the sea coast of Tyre and Sidon, who came to hear him, and to be healed of their diseases; 18 and they that were troubled with unclean spirits were healed. 19 And all the multitude sought to touch him; for power came forth from him, and healed them all. (We shall see this again for Jesus is coming as the Latter Rain in Hos 6:1-3.)
Luk 4:40 And when the sun was setting, all they that had any sick with divers diseases brought them unto him; and he laid his hands on every one of them, and healed them.
God can change a prophecy, word of knowledge or wisdom, dream or vision, which can all be warnings, which are changed if we repent. They can be promises which we must believe to receive. Many do not believe to the end to receive and so their promise was not fulfilled. These things are changeable, but the Word is not. Jer 23:28-29 The prophet that hath a dream, let him tell a dream; and he that hath my (prophetic) word, let him speak my word faithfully. What is the straw to the wheat? saith Jehovah. 29 Is not my Word like fire? saith Jehovah; and like a hammer that breaketh the rock in pieces? The straw supports the wheat but its value is nothing like the wheat. A dream or prophecy can be changeable but not the Word.
Isa 53:1-12 Who hath believed our message? and to whom hath the arm of Jehovah been revealed? 2 For he grew up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him. 3 He was despised, and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief (Hebrew: sickness): and as one from whom men hide their face he was despised; and we esteemed him not. Who was He despised by, the factious. Who was Job or David despised by, the factious.
4 Surely he hath borne our griefs (Hebrew: sicknesses), and carried our sorrows; yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. 5 But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. 6 All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and Jehovah hath laid on him the iniquity of us all. 7 He was oppressed, yet when he was afflicted he opened not his mouth; as a lamb that is led to the slaughter, and as a sheep that before its shearers is dumb, so he opened not his mouth.
8 By oppression and judgment he was taken away; and as for his generation, who among them considered that he was cut off out of the land of the living for the transgression of my people to whom the stroke was due? (Who was due the stroke, the judas’ the factious, the back stabbers, the lusters, etc.) 9 And they made his grave with the wicked, and with a rich man in his death; although he had done no violence, neither was any deceit in his mouth.
10 Yet it pleased Jehovah to bruise him; he hath put him to grief (Hebrew: Made Him sick): when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his seed, he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of Jehovah shall prosper in his hand. (Notice: He prolonged His Days in His seed doing His same works.) 11 He shall see of the travail of his soul, and shall be satisfied: by the knowledge of himself shall my righteous servant justify many; and he shall bear their iniquities. 12 Therefore will I divide him a portion with the great, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong; because he poured out his soul unto death, and was numbered with the transgressors: yet he bare the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.

David Eells – 8/9/23
Samuel Fire 2/16/23 (David’s notes in red)
I saw a sheep with very long wool. He was very proud of his wool and was showing it off to other sheep. The other sheep said to him that there is no good use for the long wool, and it only has negative aspects for sheep.
I then saw a Shepherd, preparing to sheer the wool off a long white wool sheep. This sheep was squirming and kicking and making noise. But after the wool was removed, the sheep jumped up and just walked around as though nothing was wrong. With the excess wool cut off, the heat and relief were almost instant. The sheep was much happier now that the wool had been removed. Rom 8:17-19 ASV and if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified with him. 18 For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed to us-ward. 19 For the earnest expectation of the creation waiteth for the revealing of the sons of God.
Then I realized how that the long wool represents our flesh and self that needs to be cut off. As a sheep cannot cut off the excess wool themselves, nor can we die to self without the help and direction of the Lord. Also, like how the sheep did not enjoy the wool sheering; it’s just the same as with our adjustments and procrastination in adhering to the Lord and being obedient, it takes until we realize after that the Lord has a perfect plan for all of us. (Php_3:8 Yea verily, and I count all things to be loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but refuse, that I may gain Christ.)
The wool is of use for the Shepherd, not the sheep. Our lives are for Christ, not ourselves.
Leave the Old Man Behind
Raynaldo Portela (David’s notes in red)
In a dream, I was in my grandmother's house, and a woman with a baby needed a ride, so I helped her. (The grandmother’s house represents the original, “old” gospel and we are to help the woman (the church) in the wilderness journey to bring forth the fruit of Christ.) Jud 3 Beloved, while I was giving all diligence to write unto you of our common salvation, I was constrained to write unto you exhorting you to contend earnestly for the faith which was once for all delivered unto the saints.
Also, Rev 12:1-2, And a great sign was seen in heaven: a woman arrayed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars; 2 and she was with child; and she crieth out, travailing in birth, and in pain to be delivered. 6 And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that there they may nourish her a thousand two hundred and threescore days.)
When we arrived at the woman’s destination, (the wilderness tribulation) we saw a tall, very dark man; I couldn't see his face. He was like a shadow and very tall, like 15 or 20 Ft. (The dark man represents the old man who walks in darkness in the ways of the world. The flesh seems like a giant to conquer, but we are assured by faith that we can conquer the enemy of our souls. We believe Jesus already accomplished this for us.)
Mat 4:16 The people that sat in darkness Saw a great light, And to them that sat in the region and shadow of death, To them did light spring up. Joh 8:12 Again therefore Jesus spake unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in the darkness, but shall have the light of life. Joh 12:46 I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me may not abide in the darkness.
He said, “Come with me. Maybe if I go with you, he will forget me” (If we walk after the flesh we must die.) I said, “No, I don't want to go, I'm afraid”. He said, “Come with me”. So, I went with him. I remember it was a beautiful flat land with grass and a little house in the middle. (The small house represents losing the flesh) The tall man came off the bus with me, shouting, "Please!” As in, “forget me” (Meaning, Let me live.) Again, he said, "Please forget me.” Nobody opened the door, so he said, “I don't need you”. He departed and left me there. (When we don’t feed the flesh by walking with it, it will grow weak and die. When we resist the devil, he will flee.)
After he left, Jesus opened the door. He was dressed in very bright white clothes, and he told me, “I'll always love you,” and I felt so safe with him. (We are to forget the ‘old man’ and the past life and continue in our crucified walk with Christ. Gal 2:20 I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I that live, but Christ liveth in me: and that life which I now live in the flesh I live in faith, the faith which is in the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself up for me. )
Sandy Shaw 8/5/15 (David's notes in red)
This is a parable of the brethren learning to fight together against the enemy and finding out that they have total authority through the Word of God.
I had a dream where I was an observer of a big battlefield with a war going on. It was so noisy that I couldn't hear anyone talk; people had to shout. I heard cannons and grenades going off and a lot of rapid gunfire. Flaming arrows were being shot. (Indicating the fiery darts of the evil one fired into our thoughts that must be quenched. This is also the words and actions of his duped vessels of dishonor. The zombie apocalypse is real. We have seen the walking dead who claim to be Christians but walk in all sin and war with witchcraft against their brothers and are as Esau who sold his birthright.)
And then I heard, "Man down! Man down!" Someone was shouting. (I.e. One was wounded in battle.) I then looked to my left and saw a body on the ground. And running to the body from the right side was Greg. I then noticed it was Brandy who was down. Greg put his hands on his chest, started praying in tongues and commanded Brandy to get up. Brandy started moaning and groaning and didn't open his eyes.
Then I heard another voice saying, "Get off me! I said, get off me!" (Recognizing spiritual attacks and realizing that authority must be taken over the enemy.) And I recognized that voice was Bill's. Greg ran to Bill who was holding his left leg. He put his hand on the injured leg and said, "Get up, brother; you are healed". (1Pe 2:24 ... By whose stripes you WERE healed.) They both ran back to Brandy and laid hands on him and prayed in the spirit. (Mat 18:19 Again I say unto you, that if two of you shall agree on earth as touching anything that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father who is in heaven.)
More fiery arrows were trying to hit Brandy because he was the target. Then Greg and Bill commanded, "Off, off, off", as they used their hands like shields to block the arrows. Eph 6:13 Wherefore take up the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and, having done all, to stand. 14 Stand therefore, having girded your loins with truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, 15 and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16 withal taking up the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the evil one. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
2Co 10:3 For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh 4 (for the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh, but mighty before God to the casting down of strongholds), 5 casting down imaginations, and every high thing that is exalted against the knowledge of God, and bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ.
Bill said, "Come on, Brandy, open your eyes so you can see what God is doing!" (This was back in 2015. Brandy sees much better today than most through practice.) And he opened his eyes and got up. (We are to SEE Father has already given us the victory. 2Pe 1:2 Grace to you and peace be multiplied in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord. Mar 11:24 ASV Therefore I say unto you, All things whatsoever ye pray and ask for, believe that ye receive(d) them, and ye shall have them.
3 seeing that his divine power HATH granted unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that called us by his own glory and virtue; 4 whereby he hath granted unto us his precious and exceeding great promises; that through these ye may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped from the corruption that is in that world by lust. And exercising the authority of our God-given "divine nature" over the enemies of our soul.)
At the same time, they said, "Come on. Let's get out of here!" Greg jumped up and shouted, "No! We can't! We are in the midst of the storm!" (We can't run from the battle that God has ordained for us to come to the end of ourselves and conquer the enemy.) "We have the victory and we are victorious!" He shouted with everything he had. (2Co 2:14 But thanks be unto God, who always leadeth us in triumph (to celebrate the victory even before we see it) in Christ (to those who have faith in His Word), and maketh manifest through us the savor of his knowledge in every place.
Luk 10:19 Behold, I have given you authority to tread upon serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall in any wise hurt you.)
There was no shaking these guys. They knew that they knew that they knew. They needed each other working as one with their Commander-in-Chief. (Listening to the Word of God, Jesus Christ.)
Then, very softly in the background, I heard a song:
Jesus never fails Jesus never fails You might as well Get behind me, Satan You will not prevail For, Jesus never fails
We have these awesome promises in Psalm 91!
Psa 91: 2 I will say of Jehovah, He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in whom I trust. 3 For he will deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, And from the deadly pestilence. …5 Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night, Nor for the arrow that flieth by day; 6 For the pestilence that walketh in darkness, Nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday. 7 A thousand shall fall at thy side, And ten thousand at thy right hand; But it shall not come nigh thee. 8 Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold, And see the reward of the wicked.
…13 Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: The young lion and the serpent shalt thou trample under foot.
Diet Of Spiritual Food
Alenna Timoshchuk 6/24/21 (David’s notes in red)
I dreamt I was at my old diet coach’s house. (I say old as in, she’s not my diet coach anymore, she’s actually young age wise.) (We have a diet of “spiritual food” that we partake of by consuming the Word of God that teach or “coach” us His ways, which are from of old.) In reality she had a baby girl about a week after I had my daughter Abigail. In my dream she had her 3 days before I gave birth to Abigail. Anyway, I was with her in her kitchen, and she was getting ready to leave to go with her husband somewhere.
As she was getting ready, she grabbed a bowl and spoon to feed her daughter, Sophia. I was so shocked because I knew Sophia was Abigail’s age and couldn’t be more than 3 months old and her mom was already feeding her solids. I asked her, “Are you really going to let her eat solid food? When was she born?” She replied calmly, “April 9th, yeah I feed her solids all the time now, she loves it.” I looked at her baby and was completely mystified. This baby looked like she was 1 year old. She was so big. (If we come as a child we can eat solid food when so called grownups cant. Heb 5:12 For when by reason of the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need again that someone teach you the rudiments of the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of solid food.
Heb 5:14 But solid food is for fullgrown men, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern good and evil. We must discern truth from error by believing all of the Word.)
After her mom finished feeding her, the baby got up and started walking! Again, I was so shocked and exclaimed to her, “She can walk already!? She’s not even 3 months old!” And her mom just kind of looked at me and at her and shrugged her shoulders, like it was just so normal that this baby can walk.
Her husband came home and grabbed the car seat with the baby and started talking to his wife in Russian. This also surprised me because he himself is an American but she is Russian and he was talking to her so fluently and without an accent. I thought to myself, ‘how did he learn to speak her language so well?’
They all went to the front door and were about to leave, and I was just standing in the living room watching them, so surprised by all that I had seen. Then she turned to me with a big smile and said, “Well we’re leaving, so you can stay here if you want, or you can leave when you’re ready.” And they all went out the door. End of dream. (We have had other dreams where the man-child will grow up and mature very quickly. Even our personal Man-child of Christ in us can grow quickly if we feed him the spiritual food.)
Crucify Him Afresh
Marie Kelton 9/24/21
During the morning meeting at Debbie's house, I asked the Lord about sending me a husband. Even though he told me multiple times that He was my husband. (Isa 54:5 For thy Maker is thy husband; Jehovah of hosts is his name: and the Holy One of Israel is thy Redeemer; the God of the whole earth shall he be called.)
The Lord gave me an open vision of Him kneeling between two Roman soldiers. Jesus had cuts on Him, He didn't have a shirt on just an undergarment. His head was hanging down and He had a crown of thorns on his head. I was in a crowd with a bunch of other people looking at what was going on.
I then walked up to Jesus and put my hand on His shoulder and fell to my knees. Jesus lifted his head and looked at me, His eyes held so much sadness, and I heard the words, "Crucifying the son of God afresh." Then I started crying and repenting, telling the Lord that I didn't want to crucify Him afresh. Heb 6:4-6 ASV For as touching those who were once enlightened and tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Spirit, 5 and tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the age to come, 6 and then fell away, it is impossible to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame.
As I was looking at His eyes and holding His face, He turned into a lion with a huge mane (Lion of Judah) and His eyes no longer held any sadness in them. (He is about to come as a Lion and he will judge those who persecute their brothers, His Chosen.)
The Handmaiden Cannot Bear The Fruit of Christ
Winnie Osegueda - 12/26/2021
I dreamt that I really wanted to buy bread and I was looking for somewhere to purchase it. I entered a store owned by an Orthodox/Hasidic Jewish man and I went all the way to the back of the store to get the bread located on the left in a glass refrigerator. When the Jewish man saw me, he said, "Get out of here!" In this man's eyes I was a Gentile and did not belong there. There were two other Jewish women there as well that seemed kind. One of the women had smiled at me when I walked in, but it was the man who rudely told me to leave.
As I left the store and walked away, I saw that one of the Jewish women left the store as well and walked down the street with me. I began to speak with her and ask her about her situation and she seemed to be very sad. She was trapped, but wanted to be free. (Believing in Jesus Christ is the only Way of being free from religion and all bondage.) The young Jewish woman and I entered into a public restroom, and she began to cry because she desperately desired to have children.
She told me that she could not have children because she was branded as "inchallah." She lowered her pants to show me where she was branded, which was below her belly button. (This is where the womb is located.) She was branded all around this area and it even went toward the back. This branding was there so that she could not have children, and so that she would be separated from the other women. (This branding is like a curse on her womb and a “stigma” of disapproval.) At this point when I looked back up at her, I realized she was wearing a red cloak.
Then the young Jewish woman said she needed to hold her form until she finally had a husband. (Meaning she could not become pregnant until marriage.) Although I am not certain what she meant, I felt sorry for her, and I desired for her to be free. I entered a cafeteria and began to tell someone else the problem that this woman was having.
I noticed a man with very dark hair who was facing left and taking notes. This man was also a Jew, I realized, and he was eavesdropping so that he could report the young Jewish woman and hinder her from leaving and becoming free. The verse that came to me regarding this man was: Gal 2:4 and that because of the false brethren privily brought in, who came in privily to spy out our liberty which we have in Christ Jesus, that they might bring us into bondage.
I woke up shortly after this and I immediately thought of Sarah vs Hagar. I decided to look up the word that was branded on the young woman, which was "Inchallah," as I had never heard that word before. I found out that Challah is a special bread of Ashkenazi Jewish origin, which I thought was pretty spot on regarding the dream.
The word in my dream is a mixture of challah, as well as "Inshallah" which is a phrase that Muslims use which means "if God wills." Muslims, just like Jews, are under law and religious spirits. (Many ‘religious’ people don’t know and understand what the will of God is because they are not eating the Bread of Life for themselves but “buying bread” in the form of all kinds of books in apostate religions that do not satisfy them spiritually.)
I asked the Lord for a verse by faith at random and received: Isa 55:2 (2-3 for context) Wherefore do ye spend money for that which is not bread? and your labor for that which satisfieth not? hearken diligently unto me, and eat ye that which is good, and let your soul delight itself in fatness. 3 Incline your ear, and come unto me; hear, and your soul shall live: and I will make an everlasting covenant with you, even the sure mercies of David. (I thought it was amazing that I landed on verse 2 regarding spending money for that which is not bread.)
The next morning on the morning prayer meeting, Amber received Gal 4 and I knew the Lord was speaking to me. I don't remember the exact verse she landed on, so I will share the entire chapter:
Gal 4: 4 but when the fulness of the time came, God sent forth his Son, born of a woman, born under the law, 5 that he might redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons.
21 Tell me, ye that desire to be under the law, do ye not hear the law? 22 For it is written, that Abraham had two sons, one by the handmaid, and one by the freewoman. 23 Howbeit the son by the handmaid is born after the flesh; but the son by the freewoman is born through promise. 24 Which things contain an allegory: for these women are two covenants; one from mount Sinai, bearing children unto bondage, which is Hagar. (The Jewish law came from Sinai but the “New Covenant is a better covenant based on better promises.”
25 Now this Hagar is mount Sinai in Arabia and answereth to the Jerusalem that now is: for she is in bondage with her children. (Those under the Law are under a covenant that no longer exists for we were given a NEW Covenant.) 26 But the Jerusalem that is above is free, which is our mother. (Our mother is the heavenly Jerusalem that is born from above not the unregenerate Jerusalem under the law.) 27 For it is written, Rejoice, thou barren that bearest not; Break forth and cry, thou that travailest not: For more are the children of the desolate than of her that hath the husband. 28 Now we, brethren, as Isaac was, are children of promise.
29 But as then he that was born after the flesh persecuted him that was born after the Spirit, so also it is now. 30 Howbeit what saith the scripture? Cast out the handmaid and her son: for the son of the handmaid shall not inherit with the son of the freewoman. 31 Wherefore, brethren, we are not children of a handmaid, but of the freewoman.
Law And Grace
Gal 3:1-19 O foolish Galatians, who did bewitch you, before whose eyes Jesus Christ was openly set forth crucified? 2 This only would I learn from you, Received ye the Spirit by the works of
6 Even as Abraham believed God, and it was reckoned unto him for righteousness. 7 Know therefore that they that are of faith, the same are sons of Abraham. 8 And the scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the Gentiles by faith, preached the gospel beforehand unto Abraham, saying, In thee shall all the nations be blessed.
9 So then they that are of faith are blessed with the faithful Abraham. 10 For as many as are of the works of
How could we be under the curse of the Law if we never knew what it said? Rom 5:14 Nevertheless death reigned from Adam until Moses, even over them that had not sinned after the likeness of Adam's transgression, who is a figure of him that was to come. Adam’s transgression was he knew the Law, “Don't partake of the fruit of the tree.” We didn't know the Law and don’t sin after Adams transgression. Also the Law covenant wasn't made with us but the Jews but we were guilty of breaking God’s moral law by our conscience.
Rom 2:12 For as many as have sinned without law shall also perish without the law: and as many as have sinned under the law shall be judged by the law; 13 for not the hearers of the law are just before God, but the doers of the law shall be justified: 14 (for when Gentiles that have not the law do by nature the things of the law, these, not having the law, are the law unto themselves; 15 in that they show the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience bearing witness therewith, and their thoughts one with another accusing or else excusing them).
Back to Gal 3:13 Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us; for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree: 14 that upon the Gentiles might come the blessing of Abraham in Christ Jesus; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith. 15 Brethren, I speak after the manner of men: Though it be but a man's covenant, yet when it hath been confirmed, no one maketh it void, or addeth thereto.
16 Now to Abraham were the promises spoken, and to his seed. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ. 17 Now this I say: A covenant confirmed beforehand by God, the law, which came four hundred and thirty years after, doth not
Col 2:14 having blotted out the bond written in ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us: and he hath taken it out of the way, nailing it to the cross; 15 having despoiled the principalities and the powers, he made a show of them openly, triumphing over them in it. 16 Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of a feast day or a new moon or a sabbath day: 17 which are a shadow of the things to come; but the body is Christ's.
Back to Gal 3:18 For if the inheritance is of the law, it is no more of promise: but God hath granted it to Abraham by promise. 19 What then is the law? It was added because of transgressions, till the seed should come to whom the promise hath been made; and it was ordained through angels by the hand of a mediator.
Gal 4:21 Tell me, ye that desire to be under the law, do ye not hear the law?
Gal 5:1-6 For freedom did Christ set us free: stand fast therefore, and be not entangled again in a yoke of bondage. 2 Behold, I Paul say unto you, that, if ye receive circumcision, Christ will profit you nothing. 3 Yea, I testify again to every man that receiveth circumcision, that he is a debtor to do the whole law. 4 Ye are severed from Christ, ye who would be justified by the law; ye are fallen away from grace. 5 For we through the Spirit by faith wait for the hope of righteousness. 6 For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision availeth anything, nor uncircumcision; but faith working through love.
Jas 2:17-26 Even so faith, if it have not works, is dead in itself. 18 Yea, a man will say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: show me thy faith apart from thy works, and I by my works will show thee my faith. 19 Thou believest that God is one; thou doest well: the demons also believe, and shudder. 20 But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith apart from works is barren? 21 Was not Abraham our father justified by works, in that he offered up Isaac his son upon the altar? 22 Thou seest that faith wrought with his works, and by works was faith made perfect;
23 and the scripture was fulfilled which saith, And Abraham believed God, and it was reckoned unto him for righteousness; and he was called the friend of God. 24 Ye see that by works a man is justified, and not only by faith. 25 And in like manner was not also Rahab the harlot justified by works, in that she received the messengers, and sent them out another way? 26 For as the body apart from the spirit is dead, even so faith apart from works is dead. When we act on our faith we see miracles.
Rom 4:13-5:4 For not through
16 For this cause it is of faith, that it may be according to grace; to the end that the promise may be sure to all the seed; not to that only which is of the law, but to that also which is of the faith of Abraham, who is the father of us all 17 (as it is written, A father of many nations have I made thee) before him whom he believed, even God, who giveth life to the dead, and calleth the things that are not, as though they were.
18 Who in hope believed against hope, to the end that he might become a father of many nations, according to that which had been spoken, So shall thy seed be. 19 And without being weakened in faith he considered his own body now as good as dead (he being about a hundred years old), and the deadness of Sarah's womb; 20 yet, looking unto the promise of God, he wavered not through unbelief, but waxed strong through faith, giving glory to God, 21 and being fully assured that what he had promised, he was able also to perform. 22 Wherefore also it was reckoned unto him for righteousness.
23 Now it was not written for his sake alone, that it was reckoned unto him; 24 but for our sake also, unto whom it shall be reckoned, who believe on him that raised Jesus our Lord from the dead, 25 who was delivered up for our trespasses, and was raised for our justification. 5:1 Being therefore justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ
2 through whom also we have had our access by faith into this grace wherein we stand; and we rejoice in hope of the glory of God. 3 And not only so, but we also rejoice in our tribulations: knowing that tribulation worketh stedfastness; 4 and stedfastness, approvedness; and approvedness, hope:

David Eells - 8/16/23
Free Unleavened Bread To Share
Anonymous 6/5/23 (David’s notes in red)
I dreamt that I went into what I thought was a cafe to get food. There was only one person in there and he was behind the counter cooking. It wasn't like a normal cafe as there was no menu and no cash register (As Jesus commanded in Mat 10:8 “Freely you have received; freely give”) and there were tables and chairs, but no one was there. (This is a spiritual “cafe”.) (Our café is over the air)
I went up to the man and he asked if I was hungry and I said yes. (Mat 5:6 Blessed are they that hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.) He smiled at me and then started preparing food and I watched him make and prepare flat or unleavened bread from scratch. (From scratch represents being taught the Truth by God Himself. Let scripture teach. Joh 6:45 It is written in the prophets, And they shall all be taught of God. Every one that hath heard from the Father, and hath learned, cometh unto me. Psa 119:160 The sum of thy word is truth; And every one of thy righteous ordinances endureth for ever.) No costly “prepacked”, bible college theologies, sermons, and doctrines, taught by man.)
Isa 55:1-2 Ho, every one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters, and he that hath no money; come ye, buy, and eat; yea, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price. 2 Wherefore do ye spend money for that which is not bread? and your labor for that which satisfieth not? hearken diligently unto me, and eat ye that which is good, and let your soul delight itself in fatness.
He used his hands to put it all together and then he stretched the bread thin to fill a giant pan. He browned it and it smelt beautiful and was much larger and a different color than a tortilla. When it was completely cooked, he said to me that this is the bread that I needed to make and eat. (Joh 6:35 Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall not hunger, and he that believeth on me shall never thirst. … 51 I am the living bread which came down out of heaven: if any man eat of this bread, he shall live for ever: yea and the bread which I will give is my flesh, for the life of the world.)
He handed me the warm flat/unleavened bread and I held it in my hand. I was very impressed, and I enjoyed it even though it had no toppings and was just plain bread. (We don’t want to add to the Word to make it sweet to the flesh for then it loses it power. We don’t want to add a legalistic spirit or faith is negated.) Pro 30:6 Add thou not unto his words, Lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar. (Rev 22:18-19 I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto them, God shall add unto him the plagues which are written in this book: 19 and if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part from the tree of life, and out of the holy city, which are written in this book.)
The man was happy and pleased and he gave it to me at no charge. This man represents David Eells, who has been preparing and serving the unleavened bread (UBM) for many and gives it away freely. (And before him, this man is the Lord, Who has prepared for us, the unleavened bread in His Word, which gives us Life. Father is pleased to give this free gift of Eternal Life to all who receive it and believe it.
It is given by grace through faith. Notice the word “freely” in these verses. Rom 3:24 being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus: 1Co 2:12 But we received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is from God; that we might know the things that were freely given to us of God.
The Lord gave us warning to beware of the leaven of the Pharisees, the Sadducees and of Herod. This is added to the Word to make it more acceptable to the flesh. We eat the unleavened bread and cleanse ourselves of the leaven from our past religious lives, with its teachings, and our old ways of thinking and self-works. We cannot have leaven in our houses in the tribulation, which is the last seven years.)
The only thing that can create Christ in us is the pure Word. (Exo 12:19-20 Seven days shall there be no leaven found in your houses: for whosoever eateth that which is leavened, that soul shall be cut off from the congregation of Israel, whether he be a sojourner, or one that is born in the land. 20 Ye shall eat nothing leavened; in all your habitations shall ye eat unleavened bread.
1Co 5:7-8 Purge out the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, even as ye are unleavened. For our passover also hath been sacrificed, even Christ: 8 wherefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth. And Gal 5:9 A little leaven leaveneth the whole lump.)
House of UBM Ministry
Anonymous 3/11/23 (David’s notes in red)
I had a dream that UBM brethren were living together in a large house, they all had their own rooms, but everything else was shared, including their meals. (Our own rooms represent our own individual temple. The large house represents the greater UBM disciples and others that are coming here to share everything, like in the Book of Acts. This will promote Love and conserve time, energy, and resources.) Psa 133:1 A Song of Ascents; of David. Behold, how good and how pleasant it is For brethren to dwell together in unity!
Each person had their own area they would minister in, and some were always praying and interceding, and some always studying the Word, and some cooking and cleaning, and some took care of the gardens and many other areas, and some people did multiple things. (And some probably rotated. This way the brethren don’t have to slave away their time but have time to seek first the Kingdom. We all have been given natural gifts and abilities to help in caring for the Body and sharing the work. We also have all been given spiritual gifts to minister to the Body. The Lord is preparing us for ministry in the tribulation to the world. Both men and women have their biblical roles too. Col 3:23-24 whatsoever ye do, work heartily, as unto the Lord, and not unto men; 24 knowing that from the Lord ye shall receive the recompense of the inheritance: ye serve the Lord Christ.
Such as deacons, (This is not an office. It is a minister, a servant, not necessarily a minister of the Word.) as in 1Ti 3:8-12 Deacons in like manner must be grave, not double-tongued, not given to much wine, not greedy of filthy lucre; 9 holding the mystery of the faith in a pure conscience. 10 And let these also first be proved; then let them serve as deacons, if they be blameless. 11 Women in like manner must be grave, not slanderers, temperate, faithful in all things. 12 Let deacons be husbands of one wife, ruling their children and their own houses well.
And Elders 1Ti 5:17-19 Let the elders that rule well be counted worthy of double honor, especially those who labor in the word and in teaching. …19 Against an elder receive not an accusation, except at the mouth of two or three witnesses.
And the five-fold offices are the elders and overseers of the Church: Eph 4:11-13 And he gave some to be apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; 12 for the perfecting of the saints, unto the work of ministering, unto the building up of the body of Christ: 13 till we all attain unto the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a fullgrown man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ.)
Everyone gathered for prayer multiple times per day and would have Bible studies every day. (We are to pray unceasingly as commanded and by the leading of the Holy Spirit. Col 4:2-3 Continue stedfastly in prayer, watching therein with thanksgiving; 3 withal praying for us also, that God may open unto us a door for the word, to speak the mystery of Christ, for which I am also in bonds;
1Th 5:17 pray without ceasing; Eph 6:18 with all prayer and supplication praying at all seasons in the Spirit, and watching thereunto in all perseverance and supplication for all the saints.
They fellowshipped daily. Act 2:44-47 And all that believed were together, and had all things common; 45 and they sold their possessions and goods, and parted them to all, according as any man had need. 46 And day by day, continuing stedfastly with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread at home, they took their food with gladness and singleness of heart, 47 praising God, and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to them day by day those that were saved.)
If the Lord wanted someone else to join the community, He would personally bring them to the spiritual house Himself. (Angels will guide some here and also keep some away to protect the fellowship. There are many wolves in sheep’s clothing.) (Joh 6:44-45 No man can come to me, except the Father that sent me draw him: and I will raise him up in the last day. 45 It is written in the prophets, And they shall all be taught of God. Every one that hath heard from the Father, and hath learned, cometh unto me… 65 And he said, For this cause have I said unto you, that no man can come unto me, except it be given unto him of the Father.
Joh 10:27-28 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: Joh 12:26 If any man serve me, let him follow me; and where I am, there shall also my servant be: if any man serve me, him will the Father honor.)
The house was in a place that looked like Antarctica or the Artic. Everything outside of the property was ice and snow and there were mountains of snow in every direction. (The cold area and ice and snow represents winter, which Jesus said represented tribulation. This is the place of trials and testing people go through to teach them the peace and unity necessary to be one with the body.) The house was close to a giant ice lake. However, the house and surrounding property had green grass and the temperature was warm. (The house on the property is warm with the green grass representing a place of safety and protection and provision. Psa 23:2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures; He leadeth me beside still waters.
Eze 34:13-14 And I will bring them out from the peoples, and gather them from the countries, and will bring them into their own land; and I will feed them upon the mountains of Israel, by the watercourses, and in all the inhabited places of the country. 14 I will feed them with good pasture; and upon the mountains of the height of Israel shall their fold be: there shall they lie down in a good fold; and on fat pasture shall they feed upon the mountains of Israel.)
The house and property were hidden to everyone that God didn't want there, and the place couldn't be seen on Google Earth or maps. (I experienced this when trying to show people my house; It showed nothing but solid woods. Another time it showed up, probably depending on who wants to come here. Psa 91:1 He that dwelleth in the secret place of the Most High Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.)
I went for a long walk outside the property, around the snowy mountains and ice hills, and I found a little shack. I went inside and saw a man named Ray and there were two women I didn't know there. (Ray means wise protector or little lamb, ewe, one with purity. Ray could represent an angel who protect God’s children.) I felt as if the women are part-way on the path but not at UBM level yet. They were trying to get to the UBM house and were searching to find it but decided to settle in the shack for a while, because it was so cold and isolated and they were tired from travelling.
(Most do not need a refuge but tribulation because in Act 14:22 …through many tribulations we must enter into the kingdom of God. Discipleship is a cross to bear to come into fellowship in the body. Faction is a method God uses to separate those who refuse their cross. A dead church suits them fine.)
I went back to the UBM kitchen and found that it was my turn to choose what we were all going to have for dinner tomorrow. I wanted tacos, but I wanted to make sure everyone else was fine with beef tacos, so I went around to ask everyone if they liked beef tacos. Php 2:1-4 If there is therefore any exhortation in Christ, if any consolation of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any tender mercies and compassions, 2 make full my joy, that ye be of the same mind, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind; 3 doing nothing through faction or through vainglory, but in lowliness of mind each counting other better than himself; 4 not looking each of you to his own things, but each of you also to the things of others.
Let The Lord Lift You Higher
Samuel Fire 4/21/23 (David’s notes in red)
In prayer I heard “What is your life? Who do you work for?
Keep reaching high just as My Son did intentionally and with passion with a want for more Holiness. Have a desire and outlook of attaining higher accomplishment as Lord Jesus has already done. Allow Him to work through you. (I felt this is to exercise our imagination and see the best possible result.) Php 3:12-14 Not that I have already obtained, or am already made perfect: but I press on, if so be that I may lay hold on that for which also I was laid hold on by Christ Jesus. 13 Brethren, I count not myself yet to have laid hold: but one thing I do, forgetting the things which are behind, and stretching forward to the things which are before. 14 I press on toward the goal unto the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.
Luk 8:15 And that in the good ground, these are such as in an honest and good heart, having heard the word, hold it fast, and bring forth fruit with patience. Mat 13:23 And he that was sown upon the good ground, this is he that heareth the word, and understandeth it; who verily beareth fruit, and bringeth forth, some a hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.
Nothing else matters. Learn to hate waste. Don't worry about time and efforts, but instead, what you have been entrusted with and what you can use it for. Do you think it glorifies Me or puts any of the Body to shame? Start to save your time for a Kingdom purpose. 1Co 15:10 But by the grace of God I am what I am: and his grace which was bestowed upon me was not found vain; but I labored more abundantly than they all: yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me.
2Co 3:5-6 not that we are sufficient of ourselves, to account anything as from ourselves; but our sufficiency is from God; 6 who also made us sufficient as ministers of a new covenant; not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life. 1Ti 1:12 I thank him that enabled me, even Christ Jesus our Lord, for that he counted me faithful, appointing me to his service; 2Ti 2:2 And the things which thou hast heard from me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also.
Push into the manifestation of My Love. When the darkness is exposed, there is left a presence that is warm and caring for all. Your walk is like a candle out in the open. Learn to guard it with the Word and shelter it with Faith. (Mat 5:14-16 Ye are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hid. 15 Neither do men light a lamp, and put it under the bushel, but on the stand; and it shineth unto all that are in the house. 16 Even so let your light shine before men; that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven. Pro 4:23 Keep thy heart with all diligence; For out of it are the issues of life.
Link and combine with others in Christ. Add to it with prayer and praise. Share it with others, but do not let anything lessen your Fire for Me. (I saw everything in the natural trying to extinguish this small lit candle. But when a container like a lantern was surrounding it, and plenty of wax and wick, the candle burned bright and strong and gave light for many to see.) Mat 3:11 I indeed baptize you in water unto repentance: but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you in the Holy Spirit and in fire: Psa 39:3 My heart was hot within me; While I was musing the fire burned: Then spake I with my tongue:
Jer 20:9 And if I say, I will not make mention of him, nor speak any more in his name, then there is in my heart as it were a burning fire shut up in my bones, and I am weary with forbearing, and I cannot contain. Luk 24:32 And they said one to another, Was not our heart burning within us, while he spake to us in the way, while he opened to us the scriptures?
Rom 12:9-13 Let love be without hypocrisy. Abhor that which is evil; cleave to that which is good. 10 In love of the brethren be tenderly affectioned one to another; in honor preferring one another; 11 in diligence not slothful; fervent in spirit; serving the Lord; 12 rejoicing in hope; patient in tribulation; continuing stedfastly in prayer; 13 communicating to the necessities of the saints; given to hospitality.
A well-used vessel has wear but is cherished and Favored, to be cared for. (I felt that someone who has been tired and worn out, has been in the use of the Lord. Worse yet, are those who have reached this stage of worn out and have only known darkness their whole life. I also have seen that one who is favored, is chosen to do various tasks often.) Rom 14:18-19 For he that herein serveth Christ is well-pleasing to God, and approved of men. 19 So then let us follow after things which make for peace, and things whereby we may edify one another. 2Co 10:17-18 But he that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord. 18 For not he that commendeth himself is approved, but whom the Lord commendeth.
2Ti 2:15 Give diligence to present thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, handling aright the word of truth. Jas 1:12 Blessed is the man that endureth temptation; for when he hath been approved, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord promised to them that love him.
Communal of the Brethren
Tianna Fire 5/6/23 (David’s notes in red)
I dreamed that we had this giant piece of land, and it had forest all around the outskirts of the property. The property had a giant lake where a river emptied into, and there were many fruit trees and food growing all over the property. Samuel and I were building a house on the property, and we were living in it while building it. It wasn’t a big house, but it was all we needed, and it was shaped in a rectangle. As I watched the house being built, I noticed it was so easy and simple with no stress, as if we were having supernatural help because we didn’t have to do much work. (Because the Lord is doing His Works. Psa 127:1 A Song of Ascents; of Solomon. Except Jehovah build the house, They labor in vain that build it: Except Jehovah keep the city, The watchman waketh but in vain. (We are vessels being reconstructed by the Lord individually and corporately as the Body of Christ.)
1Co 3:9-17 For we are God's fellow-workers: ye are God's husbandry, God's building. 10 According to the grace of God which was given unto me, as a wise masterbuilder I laid a foundation; and another buildeth thereon. But let each man take heed how he buildeth thereon. 11 For other foundation can no man lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ.
12 But if any man buildeth on the foundation gold, silver, costly stones, wood, hay, stubble; (The Works of Man that wont hold up to tribulation fires.) 13 each man's work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it is revealed in fire; and the fire itself shall prove each man's work of what sort it is. 14 If any man's work shall abide which he built thereon, he shall receive a reward.
15 If any man's work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as through fire. 16 Know ye not that ye are a temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? 17 If any man destroyeth the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, and such are ye.
Towards the back of the house was an open lounge, and the wall on the right side was about to be finished, but I asked if we could please leave it off so that the house getting built next to it, could have their children share in my little David’s play area if they want to. So, we left that right wall off. There was an indoor slide, swing and other children activities put there, and the people children living next to us could play with it too.
(What is in our possession is Christ’s and to be distributed among the brethren to be shared for we are stewards and not owners.) The wall on the very far back had a door that connected to a giant room, that would be connected with all the other houses built. NENT Act 4:32 And the multitude of them that believed were of one heart and soul: and not even one said that aught of his possessions was his own; but they had all things common.
Eph 2:19-22 So then ye are no more strangers and sojourners, but ye are fellow-citizens with the saints, and of the household of God, 20 being built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus himself being the chief corner stone; 21 in whom each several building, fitly framed together, groweth into a holy temple in the Lord; 22 in whom ye also are builded together for a habitation of God in the Spirit.
We were in the process of building another house that was the exact same design next to our house, and these were to be connected, but have separate and private living areas. (The blueprint for our houses are the same, Jesus!!) The construction was so quick and easy. After completing this house, we were then starting to build many more houses, one by one, but they would be the exact same as these and they would all be connected for brethren to live in. (The Body of Christ care for each other’s needs, and He makes the work go well, easy, joyful and light. By the way, we are building no physical houses here. They are already here or are being built by others. Our job is the spiritual buildings.)
It was kind of like this property was for a community of brethren and fellow believers who would live here together in unity, but they would still have private physical homes to spend with their family. The giant room that was at the very back of the house was going to be connected to all the other houses too. (A symbol of unity and love.)
So, it was like a big giant joint room for everyone that lived there, and that they could have a shared space for fellowship and they wouldn’t have to go far to get to it. NENT Act 2:46-47 And daily, continuing steadfastly with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread at home, they partook of their food with gladness and singleness of heart, 47 praising God, and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added together daily those being saved.
There was going to be at least 10 houses built all the exact same, all connected and next to each other. (Ten is a number of perfection, completion, and also represents the Law or Word.) When we were in the process of the third building being built, Isaac and Marianna and their children moved into the second house. All the children loved the indoor play area and we loved fellowshipping with them. Isaac and his sons were very excited to go fishing for food in the lake and rivers and loved that the lake was on this giant property. We had really good fellowship with them, and they helped with the rest of the completion of the houses and property, which went quickly and was easy and we didn’t have to do much. Heb 3:3-4 For he hath been counted worthy of more glory than Moses, by so much as he that built the house hath more honor than the house. 4 For every house is builded by some one; but he that built all things is God.
Mount of the Brethren
Anonymous 5/18/23 (David’s notes in red)
I dreamt that all the UBM Brethren were living on the top of a tall mountain that was like a national park. It was so beautiful, the air was so clean and fresh and there was no danger, only real and faithful brethren were there. (This tall mountain represents Mount Zion, the Bride, in the Promised Land for those partaking of the unleavened bread of the Word. Psa 15:1-5 A Psalm of David. Jehovah, who shall sojourn in thy tabernacle? Who shall dwell in thy holy hill?
2 He that walketh uprightly, and worketh righteousness, And speaketh truth in his heart; 3 He that slandereth not with his tongue, Nor doeth evil to his friend, Nor taketh up a reproach against his neighbor; 4 In whose eyes a reprobate is despised, But who honoreth them that fear Jehovah; He that sweareth to his own hurt, and changeth not; 5 He that putteth not out his money to interest, Nor taketh reward against the innocent. He that doeth these things shall never be moved.)
It took a few hours of driving to go up or down the mountain, and it was rarely done because everything we needed was on this mountain. (Everything we need is already provided on our Promised Land, in Christ. Php 4:19 And my God shall supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus.) Brandy, Amber and Alexa were there, and Brandy was always seen helping everyone all the time and he could always be relied on.
I could see that Jesus was really strong in Amber. I remember seeing Brandy in all different areas of the mountain helping others; it was as if he was helping in all different places and as if he was everywhere. I also saw many of the local brethren and Outreach brethren.
Everyone that lived on the mountain had their own physical house. (NENT Joh 14:2 In the house of my Father are many abodes; if not so, I would have told you; for I am going to prepare you a place.) and all the houses were next to each other and were designed like a gated community but without the gate.
(Jesus is the Shepherd leading His sheep. Joh 10:7 Jesus therefore said unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep.) The houses ran along a street that went in the shape of a square, with two small streets in the center. (Rev_21:16 And the city (Heavenly Jerusalem/Zion) lieth foursquare…
Everyone lived on this square-shaped street, and there were community areas for fellowship, prayer meetings and worship etcetera, and because everything was connected it was only a minute walk to get anywhere. (This represents being in unity of the Spirit in the Corporate Body.) Eph 2:21 in whom each several building, fitly framed together, groweth into a holy temple in the Lord; The square-shaped street represents Zion, the New Jerusalem.) Rev 21:9-27 And there came one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls, who were laden with the seven last plagues; and he spake with me, saying, Come hither, I will show thee the bride, the wife of the Lamb.
10 And he carried me away in the Spirit to a mountain great and high, and showed me the holy city Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, 11 having the glory of God: her light was like unto a stone most precious, as it were a jasper stone, clear as crystal:12 having a wall great and high; having twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels; and names written thereon, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel:
13 on the east were three gates; and on the north three gates; and on the south three gates; and on the west three gates. 14 And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and on them twelve names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.
15 And he that spake with me had for a measure a golden reed to measure the city, and the gates thereof, and the wall thereof. 16 And the city lieth foursquare, and the length thereof is as great as the breadth: and he measured the city with the reed, twelve thousand furlongs: the length and the breadth and the height thereof are equal.
17 And he measured the wall thereof, a hundred and forty and four cubits, according to the measure of a man, that is, of an angel. 18 And the building of the wall thereof was jasper: and the city was pure gold, like unto pure glass.
19 The foundations of the wall of the city were adorned with all manner of precious stones. …21 And the twelve gates were twelve pearls; each one of the several gates was of one pearl: and the street of the city was pure gold, as it were transparent glass.
22 And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God the Almighty, and the Lamb, are the temple thereof. 23 And the city hath no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine upon it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the lamp thereof is the Lamb. Rev 21:24 And the nations shall walk amidst the light thereof: and the kings of the earth bring their glory into it.
25 And the gates thereof shall in no wise be shut by day (for there shall be no night there): 26 and they shall bring the glory and the honor of the nations into it: 27 and there shall in no wise enter into it anything unclean, or he that maketh an abomination and a lie: but only they that are written in the Lamb's book of life.
(This is the Philadelphia Church (of Brotherly Love. It is born again out of heaven onto earth. It is the Bride that God is separating the faction from now. Rev 3:12 ASV He that overcometh, I will make him a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go out thence no more: and I will write upon him the name (Meaning, nature, character, and authority) of my God, and the name of the city of my God, the new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God, and mine own new name.)
The houses were surrounded by bush and there was no threat of wild animals as all the animals were friendly and obeyed us, and we had a good relationship with them. All brethren were in unity, one mind and soul; there was no faction or division, no competition, and no jealousy; there was just love and everyone was just like Jesus. Rom 12:16 Be of the same mind one toward another. Set not your mind on high things, but condescend to things that are lowly. Be not wise in your own conceits.
The only way anyone could get here is if God brought them here Himself, no one was invited or shown this place but drawn by the Spirit. (NENT Joh 14:6 Jesus saith to him, I am the way, and the truth, and the life: no one cometh unto the Father, but through me.)
There was no Judas here, (Psa 24:3-4 Who shall ascend into the hill of Jehovah? And who shall stand in his holy place? 4 He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; Who hath not lifted up his soul unto falsehood, And hath not sworn deceitfully.) and I don't believe anyone ever left the area and no one wanted to leave and they had no reason to. There was nowhere better to go than here. (Joh 6:67-68 Jesus said therefore unto the twelve, Would ye also go away? 68 Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom shall we go? thou hast the words of eternal life.)
I was doing something in the forest area, and I found a young man. I found out he was a well-known gospel singer, but he didn’t want to be famous anymore. He had repented for selling his worship music, and for following the false gospel, and he wanted to know the real Jesus, so he came here to fast and seek God. (Jesus fasted, seeking God with His whole mind, body, soul and strength. Mat 4:1-2 Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil. 2 And when he had fasted forty days and forty nights, he afterward hungered. And Dan 9:3 And I set my face unto the Lord God, to seek by prayer and supplications, with fasting and sackcloth and ashes.
I brought him to meet all the brethren, and Alexa said she knew some of his music, and the man was so very humble and meek and gave all Glory to Jesus for everything. The man’s personality was a lot like Jesus. Alexa and the man got along very well, and they wrote a worship song together and then they sang the song in praise and worship with all the brethren in unity.
The man became close to all the brethren and received the real gospel, and he didn't want to leave the brethren or the mountain. He had no doubt about staying and he moved into his own house as there were many houses that were empty on the mountain, and all the houses were new and well-built with quality brick and concrete. (Built on the Rock, which is Christ.)
I was in my house at one point and there was a knock on my door, and I answered it, and it was a middle-aged woman that I had never seen before. She had tattoos on her arms. She asked me if I knew if there are any rentals or houses to buy here. I told her that all the houses belonged to the Lord and they were free. She told me that God had told her to come here, and I shared with her about the community. She was ecstatic and happy, saying that God had answered her prayers and beyond, and she was so grateful for this gift of being with the brethren.
I offered to take her to meet all the other brethren, so we went to her car. She showed me some of her paintings and they were paintings of the cross, the gospel, worship, and scriptures and it made me happy that all the paintings glorified God. She had so many more paintings in her car, but I walked with her carrying the few she gave me to go to the fellowship area where the other brethren were. As we were walking up the street to the main area, I turned around and saw there were many new cars driving up to the area. (Revival! More brethren will be coming.)

David Eells - 8/27/23
Our Enemies Are Made Tiny
Marie Kelton 8/7/23
During the meeting I was dealing with anxiety. I then had an open vision of a big scorpion (fear) attacking my spirit man. I then saw the Lord Jesus and He was really big. The Lord picked up the scorpion and it was really small in His hand. The Lord crushed the scorpion. (The enemy always wants us to think he is bigger than he is. We need to remember the truth and how Jesus already destroyed our enemies at the cross, and He has given us authority to plunder his kingdom and take our promised land.)
Luk 11:21-23 When the strong man fully armed guardeth his own court, his goods are in peace: 22 but when a stronger than he shall come upon him, and overcome him, he taketh from him his whole armor wherein he trusted, and divideth his spoils. 23 He that is not with me is against me; and he that gathereth not with me scattereth. (Scorpions will attempt to cause us to scatter, to run in fear, but we must fight and make war against them.)
I had another open vision of me sitting next to the Lord in heaven; He was huge but I was huge also. (We need to see ourselves as seated in the heavens which is abiding in Christ. Eph 1:3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ:
1Jn 4:4 Ye are of God, my little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you than he that is in the world. And verses 17-18 Herein is love made perfect with us, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment; because as he is, even so are we in this world. 18 There is no fear in love: but perfect love casteth out fear, because fear hath punishment; and he that feareth is not made perfect in love.
The Lord then passed the scorpion from the vision above to me which was really tiny in my hand. I knew he wanted me to crush it. (Luk 10:19 Behold, I have given you authority to tread upon serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall in any wise hurt you.)
Php 4:13 I can do all things in him that strengtheneth me. Psa 18:34 He teacheth my hands to war; So that mine arms do bend a bow of brass. Psa 144:1 A Psalm of David. Blessed be Jehovah my rock, Who teacheth my hands to war, And my fingers to fight:
Lost Keys – Found!
Samuel Fire - 2022
I lost my car keys and I searched everywhere I could for them. I searched everywhere; including to stop the wash cycle in the washing machine, pull all the clothes out and I still couldn’t find them. I then spoke to Tianna about it and she said to go and ask God where they are because He knows.
So, I stopped, calmed down and prayed and not long after, I insisted that I heard birds say, “In the washing, in the washing”. But because I had already looked in the washing machine, I was confused. Being obedient, I went and looked there again, but this time I felt to look in the lint rubber guard and there they were, praise God!
Always seek Him and He will help you and we can’t do anything in our own strength.
He Passed Out, Twice
Tianna Fire 12/30/22
I went to the toilet, and I heard a loud thud, and I ran to the kitchen and Samuel had passed out and fallen face down on the tiles. I tried to speak with him but he was unresponsive for a while but then he was able to get up, but he had no knowledge of what had happened or why or where he was or what he was doing.
He couldn’t remember much long-term stuff, or short term and kept forgetting things around every 30 seconds. All day and for some of the next day he would ask the same basic questions repeatedly many times, such as, “Where are we, what age is our son, what year is it, why is he in pain?” He seemed to have forgotten so much and couldn’t remember anything. A few days after his memory returned to normal, he still couldn’t remember what happened and the day of him passing out.
This was a big trial of my patience with being kind in having to answer the same questions repeatedly, over and over and over, every 30 seconds or so, and helping Samuel to do things. It was also a big trial with battling fear in giving into sight, because he wasn’t remembering and was extremely confused and had physical pain in his head and throughout his entire body.
Brethren prayed for us, and praise God after that I had an abundance of joy come over me and I was able to be joyful and thankful to our Father for this situation. And with God’s grace, it was so very much easier to be patient and kind in having to answer the same questions over and over. I was able to laugh in a joyful loving way with God creating this situation, because I have prayed before for God to give me the gift of patience.
After that grace of joy, God gave me faith to just continue doing the normal things we usually do, and it was easier to just ignore the physical symptoms. By Gods’ grace, Jesus through Samuel even drove us to the shop, even though Samuel didn’t know the directions, despite having driven there more times than we can count, and that it was only 3 streets away.
He didn’t even remember any of this day. By Gods’ grace I didn’t receive the enemies’ thoughts or fear of Samuel fainting while driving or something going wrong. But I wanted to just believe that God was in control and that Jesus had healed Samuel and to continue our normal day that Samuel was healed at the cross and he could drive us to the shops. It was ALL God.
The whole day Samuel was asking the same questions over and over about every 30 seconds, and the next day wasn’t as bad, and his memory was a little better although he still didn’t remember much and was asking the same questions.
I ended up writing down the answers to all the questions he kept asking so he could just keep reading the whiteboard and get the answers. Around every 30 seconds to a minute, he would re-read the white board and have funny expressions because he was confused and shocked at the answers because he couldn’t remember. For example, he couldn’t remember that our son is around a year of age as he thought he was only a few months old. When he read our son is a year old, he would have a shock reaction and it was pretty funny. God is so awesome.
The next day Samuel passed out again in the morning. Then in the afternoon he passed out again while he was in the other room praying upstairs. I heard the loud thump, and I ran over to him, and he was lying on his back on the ground. He had smashed his head on the drawers as they had been moved and parts of it broken and then fell on the ground.
Samuel’s eyes were open staring but not moving and I tried to speak with him, but he didn’t respond for about 30 seconds. He then was able to respond but he was really confused as to where we were and why, and why I was there as he thought that “years” had gone by and we were living a completely different life; he had had a vision.
Samuel was in a lot of physical pain and the brethren prayed for us and the physical pain left minutes after.
He improved much quicker this time, and a little later, his memory returned that he had of the vision and the details of it started to come back. The following day his memory was almost back to normal apart from not remembering the first day when he fainted and he was physically better, praise our God!
ALL GLORY TO OUR INCREDIBLE AND FAITHFUL FATHER! Thank You Lord that You are in control, and everything is for Your Glory and Praise!
Demons Trying To Cause To Stumble
I had been battling dizziness for about a week and I had it again just a while ago. So, I went to look up on the internet possible reasons why I could be dizzy.
I then heard two demons speaking with each other and they were saying how they have been trying to get me to wonder, and question why I have this dizziness and to then look it up. I realized that when I begin to question “Why?” I am doubting God and giving into unbelief, which then gives them a legal right to afflict me more.
When I search on-line, looking things up of possible causes, I am trusting man and the flesh, this also allows them to continue these attacks. I knew then if I just stand in faith, trusting God and knowing that He is in control of this, when I overcome questioning God, doubt, worry and giving into the lying symptoms, then it will all go away, and the devils can no longer afflict me. They can only afflict me when I give them a legal right.
After getting this revelation, I had doubt that what I saw was real and my flesh still wanted me to look up what could be causing the dizziness. I paused thinking for a few moments on what I should do as my flesh really wanted to know why I could be dizzy, in physical carnal terms.
Then God spoke to me so clearly and said, "Are you really going to still do that knowing it's fallen angels wanting you to do it?" I closed the tab and got off my phone. I want to stop wondering “why?” I’m having these symptoms and just rest, because God is in control.
Eight Day Deliverance
You said to send in testimonies that pertain to the angels or the Word of the Lord. Well, this is mine that came by word of the Lord. I did not get the e-mail about fasting for the 8 days. So, when I heard about it later, on the podcast, I was very disappointed and grieved but God used this to help motivate me into action.
So, I did some fasting and drew near to God and he delivered me from overeating. I’m just not hungry like I used to be. I have lost some weight and I’m drawing much closer to the Lord. He also gave me a vision of a body of water and a cross submerged into water about 3/4 down. (Which I believe He was showing me the water of His word devouring the curse in my life.) Also, a word I got from the Lord was, “Stand, Guard and see the salvation of the King!” Hallelujah!!
Father Confirms Spiritually and Physically Job Status
Isaac Payne - 7/31/22
I wanted to share a testimony that happened to me that was quite miraculous. I'll start with the events that led up to this testimony. For some time now, I have been overburdened with my job. I say this not to complain, but with the hope of using the situation to glorify Father.
However, my role and responsibility at work has dramatically increased and my compensation has not. Compensation is not something I really think about, Thank God! See, what John the Baptist said to the soldiers. Luk 3:14 And the soldiers asked him, saying, And we, what must we do? And he said unto them, Extort from no man by violence, neither accuse anyone wrongfully; and be content with your wages.
Back to the responsibilities, there are different levels of engineering reaching up to a senior level engineer which is a level 5 role. I am at a level 2, but doing a level 3 & 4 job. This role requires supervising installation integrators, ordering parts, building the electrical schematics, designing the PLC code and Human machine interface, leading the project, collaborating with contractors and the client, and traveling to site to commission and implement the equipment to the customer and perform acceptance testing.
Other projects of this type of scope will have about 15 people to help, but in these projects, it has been just me. Father placed me in this job right as Covid was hitting the United States. This job has been wonderful for me spiritually, especially while being on the road and experiencing my own personal wilderness and Father using this to put to death the old man.
The last few months, I've been thinking that my time was done at this position. Traveling for extended periods of time are hard on a family. It is very hard to leave and say bye to the kids as they cry wanting me to stay home. Marianna and I have been praying that Father would reveal to me what I should do concerning my job. During that time, I had multiple dreams confirming to me that my time was done at this job, and I wasn't being hasty because I can say Father has given me the strength to endure during my tenure here at this company.
I'll keep the dreams very brief and explain the summary. In one dream I was running a road race. I believe it was a 5K road race. There were other runners in the race, but for some reason I didn't see them. I was racing against myself, as I was my own competition. I was competing against my previous PR "Personal Record." I remember running as hard as I could, thinking that if I slowed down my old PR would beat me.
I finished the race in first place. I was really surprised because I didn't expect first place, I just wanted a new PR. I then saw my mile split on a teleprompter and it was 1 mile in 4 minutes and 40 seconds. 144! My coach in the dream then contacted me, wanting to congratulate me and share the success with the rest of the team. To my surprise, my boss at work was my coach. Then I woke up.
I had the previous dream months ago. I personally did not want to leave my job because I was still a bit ambitious. I wanted to finish the job I was the project lead of, and I wouldn't be done with that job until November. Marianna and I were still believing as we had prayed, and I was asking for another dream to really confirm. I was still hesitant to leave my job and wanted a little more confirmation.
I then had another dream. In this dream, I was in a Men's Warehouse clothing store. (I actually commission sorters and conveyors systems in distribution warehouses.) There were lots of very nice clothing in this shop. Although, I only remember seeing black dress suits. I came into this shop wearing a blue tie and another tie but I'm not exactly sure the color of the second tie, maybe gold.
I asked the tailor what my ties were worth and if I could trade them in. He told me that they were worth $5. There was a yellow tie behind the tailor that was for sale. I asked him how much for the yellow tie, he said $6. I traded my blue tie for the yellow tie. I also traded in the other tie as well, possibly for a pinkish colored tie. I'm not sure exactly about the second tie.
Then I woke up. When I woke up, immediately the verse came to my mind. Mat 11:28-30 Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29.) Take my yoke upon you, (the blue tie) and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. 30.) For my yoke is easy, and burden is light.
I knew instantly that the blue tie was his heavenly yoke of grace which is why it was $5 and the yellow tie I was exchanging it for was caution and the yoke of man, hence worth $6. I have been knowing lately that this job has been interfering with my relationship with Father.
After these dreams, I still had the same plan to continue finishing my project till November and then start to look for another job. I really wanted the accolades of being the lead and the stature of completing such a massive multi-million-dollar project on my resume. I was still pursuing my own goals within the company I work for.
Weeks later, I was getting ready to travel to San Francisco to commission another sorter at a distribution warehouse. Marianna and the kids had still been asking me to quit my job for some time. I really wasn't looking forward to going to San Francisco to work and be so far from my family. The night before I was to travel to San Francisco, Marianna and I prayed and asked Father to give me a definitive dream, so I could just know when to quit my job. I don't have a backup plan and I have never left a job without having another job lined up. I woke early in the morning and did not have a dream, so I was headed to San Francisco to work.
Marianna and the kids dropped me off at the airport around 5:45 am. I was waiting in line to check in my baggage. I was feeling very burdened about leaving my family and traveling for work. I know better than to trust my feelings as feeling and the soulish realm can be deceptive.
It came to my mind the prayer David Eells prayed when his family had no food. "Lord fill our plates or fill our tummies." I just said a similar prayer. I said, "Lord either change my attitude, or get me out of this job immediately." I continued and gave my bags to the airport associates, went through TSA, and made it to my gate waiting to board the plane. I'm not going home now, or so I thought. It was about time to board my flight and I was group 1 boarding which means I would be the first group of passengers to board. As the hostess called for group 1 boarding, I had to use the restroom.
I arrived back at boarding, and it was group 3 or 4, I'm assuming. I was in line, and it was almost my time to give my boarding ticket and board the plane. There was only one person in front of me. At this point, there were probably around 30 or more people who had already boarded the flight and another 30 or 40 behind me waiting to board. The hostess received a phone call. She told the other hostess to the let the guy in front me board the plane, but then stop boarding with me.
I was the very next person to board; I was in the very front of the line. I waited in the front of the line for about 10 to 15 minutes. I asked the lady what had happened. She said, "The captain has told us to stop boarding." I expected such a vague reason, but still figured I'd ask. I thought the reason was probably an unhappy passenger causing a commotion. It then dawned on me that maybe Father is answering my original prayer I prayed at baggage check-in, "Lord change my attitude, or get me out of this job immediately."
For some reason, I just spoke another prayer out of my mouth. I don't even think the prayer was me or my thoughts, it just happened. I said as I was waiting, "Father if this is you, make all those people who boarded the plane, exit the plane right now in Jesus name!" Right at that moment, I could hear shuffling back up the plane ramp and to my surprise people were exiting the plane.
Where I was standing, you could not see the ramp as it descends and turns. People came walking around the corner from the plane returning to the gate. About 30 or 40 people walked down the ramp. I prayed the prayer, and it was in Father's hands, but it happened so fast it was still surprised and astonishing. At that point, the hostess grabbed the microphone and said, "Ladies and gentlemen, the flight has been canceled due to a mechanical failure, the Landing gear is defective, and we do not have the parts at the airport to correct the issue."
If you would have looked at me, my jaw was probably dropping to the floor in amazement. I said to the hostess. "Can I grab my bags and just leave the airport and go back home?" She said, "Sure, go back to baggage check-in and they will grab the bags off the plane."
I went back to baggage check-in and was waiting in line to receive my bags. I called Marianna and told her to come pick me up. Her and the kids were thrilled. As I was still waiting in line for my bags, I began to talk to a gentleman waiting in line with me. He also was on the same flight and was going to go back to his house. I shared this testimony with him, and he was astonished as well. He even said something along the lines, "God is trying to show you something."
As we continued to talk, he told me that he is a job recruiter. He gave me his contact info and told me to call him. Again, my jaw was literally dropping. Marianna and the kids picked me back up and a few hours later, I put in my resignation. For the record, I'm not suggesting people just quit their jobs, but this is what Father was doing with me. I was certainly in a place of weakness, but a place where Father would give me a measure of His faith. Amen!
I also wanted to state this. As I initially got home and laid back in bed, fear began to come over me. I was thinking to myself, just grab a plane tomorrow and fly back out there, you can put your two weeks’ notice in on the road. Other thoughts of, “Isaac, you have bills and mortgage, what if you can’t find a job and you and the family go homeless?”
Many thoughts began to come to me, and try and reason with me. Even so much as to try to convince me that what had just happened really wasn't much of a miracle, maybe you’re looking too deep into this and leading yourself away. However, I have the mind of Christ, and these are not my thoughts, and neither are they Christ's thoughts.
I talked to Marianna and she said, "Isaac you can’t go back, how much more obvious does it need to be to get you to listen to God." She went on to say, "Isaac, think of Jonah, if you go back, they will have to throw you off the plane to keep it from crashing, do you want to be swallowed up by a giant bird?" She was right, I had to get out of bed, and not let my mind be idle. I sat down and began to read the word, and just keep reading. Rom 10:17 So belief cometh from hearing, and hearing by the word of Christ.
I knew I now needed to put my resignation in so I wouldn't be tempted to go backwards on faith. Heb 10:38 But my righteous one shall live by faith: and he shrink back, my soul hath no pleasure in him.
So, I put in my resignation. My boss had me call him immediately and he tried to convince me otherwise, less responsibilities, and such. His name is Muhammad, and he is Muslim, I told him the miracle that Father had done for me, I needed to acknowledge God in front of man. Mat 10:32-33 Everyone therefore who shall confess me before men, him will I confess before my Father who is in heaven. 33. But whosoever shall deny me before men, him also will I deny before my Father who is in heaven.
I needed to act on this swiftly and did, thanks be to God! I realized while initially battling with this myself, how people in the bible, even those who physically were there and witnessed miracles that Jesus did, could over time quit believing and talk themselves out of it. I knew I had to stay in the Word, speak it over my life, think on it throughout the day, cast thoughts down. I have the mind of Christ! Hallelujah!
Within a month after the miraculous departure from my previous job where I travelled excessively, I received three job offers. I had no income for the month and had many bills to pay. I was just walking out my faith because the Lord showed His strong hand at the airport. In all my professional career, I can tell you that I have never been so pursued by so many companies and, or job recruiters. It was at the point where I would just tell them on the phone I wasn't interested.
It was awesome because the Lord gave me favor and it seemed more like, I was the one doing the interviewing of the companies; all glory to God as He pours His favor on his children!
Concerning the three job offers, I didn't know which job to choose. I asked the Lord for a dream, and I received two dreams. In one dream, it showed my future at a food manufacturing company in which I would be in charge of three plants concerning Controls Automation. In the dream, I was taking a call in the middle of the night because they needed me to come back in to work all through the night, even though it was a day shift job. I was frustrated in the dream.
In the other dream, another company that offered me a job was with a Japanese automotive manufacturer. In this dream I was looking at the equipment, but wasn't familiar with it, however I was not frustrated or pressured. I just needed to learn this foreign equipment.
Within the week I was talking to a brother of mine in Christ named Justin. As I was talking to him, he was going to a kid's baseball game and randomly parked behind a Mitsubishi automobile. That was the name of the Japanese automotive manufacturer that offered me the job.
He said, "Isaac, there aren't a lot of Mitsubishi cars that I have seen, but I think this is confirmation. That's when I knew to make my decision and go with Mitsubishi. Also, Mitsubishi came back with an offer that superseded what I was originally making by around 60%. The job recruiter told me that they have never offered this much before and had to present the wages to the president of the company for approval and sure enough he signed off and hired me as a top level engineer.
I didn't know that there were levels of engineering in this role and never once did the company and I even discuss such matters. What is amazing about this is that I never even tried to bargain or counter about wages. I wasn't even thinking about money, I just wanted to be home with my family.
I am still at Mitsubishi, and they have been so patient with me, offering all kinds of training to me as I get caught up with their equipment that I was not familiar with. What's cool is my boss is also a Christian and has shown a lot of favor towards me. He has told me many times, "I believe God sent you here." Thank you Father, you've done it all, literally everything!
Learning To Walk In Your Faith
Don’t ever fear to make a bold statement of faith. You may think, “Well, is this God?” Don’t worry about it. If it’s to meet your need, if it’s to overcome the curse, don’t worry about it. I remember once when I called Sid and we were talking about what happened the time that my washing machine seal had gone out. Sand had gotten in it and ruined the seal.
Sid had volunteered and said, “Oh, I have a friend who works on those things. I’ll get him to come by there and get it.” So I said, “Okay.” So he came by and picked it up and took it off, and Sid called me back a few days later. He said, “Look, he fixed this and he fixed that, and it’ll just cost you $70.” I said, “Fine. Bring it on over.” Well, I knew Sid was coming over the next day to drop off the washing machine and I only had $20. And so I prayed a prayer. I said, “Father, you said You supply my every need according to Your riches in glory and I thank You for it.” Then I stuck my finger out there and I pointed at the mailbox and said to Mary. “In the name of Jesus, $50 is coming in that mailbox today.”
Do you know, I went out to that mailbox and there was $50 in that mailbox in a check, and there was a note. It read, “God wouldn’t let me go to sleep. It’s now after midnight and God wouldn’t let me go to sleep until I sent you this check for $50.” And the funny thing was, I don’t ever look at postdates, but I looked at the postdate on the check and the thing had been sent two weeks before this day, a full two weeks before this day when I stuck my finger out and pointed at the mailbox.
That envelope had been hung up in the mail somewhere for two weeks, wandering around, and it didn’t make it into that mailbox until the right time. But God wouldn’t let this poor guy sleep until he went out there and wrote the check and stuck it in the mail, even though it wandered around in the mail. I don’t know what the reason for it was, but it didn’t come there until it was time for it to be there. God answers before we call (Isaiah 65:24). Do you realize that? God does not dwell in time but we do.
Don’t think it’s too late because it’s never too late for God. God has the answer coming when you speak it and I’ve seen the biggest miracles happen when a bold statement of faith is made. The devil is telling you all the time, “Nah, nah, nah, nah,” in your ear, saying, “Boy, you’re going to look like a fool!” But God won’t let you be put to shame. The Bible says that He won’t let you be put to shame (Romans 9:33).
Anybody who puts their trust in Him shall not be put to shame, the Lord says. (Rom.10:10) For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. You need to actually say it. That was an education for me because there have been other times when I just prayed over a leaking washing machine seal and God sealed it up.
And there have been times when I’ve prayed over a carburetor and God fixed it. Then there have been times when I decided I would take that carburetor off and fix it, like one time with my daughter’s car when an enemy put sugar in her gas tank. I took the carburetor off and I tore it down. And I’m not bad at working on carburetors.
So I tore it down, checked it out, cleaned it up and put it back in, but it did the same thing. I took it back out. It wasn’t easy to get out either, but I took it out and went back through it. I said, “Nothing’s wrong with this car. I don’t see a thing wrong this carburetor,” and I put it back in but it still did the same thing.
Finally, the revelation came to me of, “The devil is messing with you; he’s robbing your time.” And so I rebuked the devil off that carburetor. I commanded the devil to loose it. Do you know that there doesn’t have to be something wrong with a piece of equipment? The Lord showed me that many times. There doesn’t have to be anything wrong with a piece of equipment.
The devil is real and he can manifest himself in this realm and he can take advantage of you. Until you take the Word of God and fight him, he can take advantage of you. He was doing that to me. He robbed my time twice to fix that carburetor. And you know what? Just because you don’t see something manifest immediately doesn’t mean it hasn’t happened. The Bible says, “all things whatsoever ye pray and ask for, believe that ye received them, and ye shall have them” (Mar.11:24).
So I commanded that carburetor to be healed in the name of Jesus. Then Deborah went and got in the car, but when she cranked it up, it was doing the same thing. I said, “Just go; it’s healed.” She said before she got to the end of the street, it straightened right out and I never had another problem with it.
You know, sometimes you have to walk it. If you believe it, you confess it, walk it. It’s like the 10 lepers who were doing according to the Law (Luke 17:12). They had to go show themselves to the priest healed (Leviticus 14). But when they were walking they weren’t healed. It didn’t come until they walked it out that they got healed (Luke 17:14).
So you have to walk it out. Faith without works is dead (James 2:17). Just remember that. Some of Jesus’ miracles didn’t happen immediately. And He didn’t even pray twice. We are disciples of Jesus now. We can’t see Him, but we’re walking with Him and He wants to take us by the hand and show us the way through every problem and situation we come to because it’s already been provided for.
It says in Scripture, my God shall supply every need of yours…. (Php.4:19). It doesn’t matter what the need is. Why did Paul say that? He said that because he knew it was taken care of at the cross. The curse was put upon Jesus.
You can’t imagine what this world would be like if there was no curse. Can you imagine what it was like in the Garden of Eden with tomato plants growing 20 feet tall, everything working, nothing breaking, including you, without the curse? Now I realize nobody is totally entered into whatever this means about being delivered from the curse, but individually God’s people are entering into different parts of it.
The body needs one another because sometimes other people have faith that we don’t have in a situation that we’re in and we need to pray for people and exercise our faith over one another. But don’t think it’s not possible. We’re going to see God do things in the next few years that we would have considered impossible, that we would have just wondered, “Is that real?”
Yes, God’s going to do things we haven’t seen. This outpouring of the Holy Spirit, this outpouring of power has never been on this earth that God’s getting ready to do.
People are going to walk on water again. They’ve done it in these days, in these years. I don’t know if any of you ever read Like a Mighty Wind or Gentle Breeze of Jesus. They are about the Indonesian revival where many times, many people saw people walk on water.
Those little islands out there where they were trying to get the Gospel to, in some cases it was the only method. It was necessary and they didn’t let the circumstance stop them from doing the Will of God. The Will of God was to go and so they went. They did not let the circumstance get in the way. They walked on the water and there were a lot of people who saw it.
Yes, the day is coming when you may have to drive a car that doesn’t have any gas in it. I’ve done it quite a few times and it works. When you’re going by faith, it works. Or you may have to command some gas into that car and God put some in it. He’s done that for me, too. Listen, circumstances can’t stop you.
Circumstances didn’t stop Jesus from doing the Will of God. Did you notice that? It’s the same Jesus Whom we have that your “faith may become effectual, in the knowledge of every good thing which is in you” (Phm.6). Wait a minute! He was talking to the saints, people on this earth. That’s right. But that’s Jesus Christ in the heart of the believer. He has all the power that He ever had. But if you limit Him, you won’t let Him speak that word out of your mouth, you won’t walk that walk with your feet, you won’t do those things.
This is not the most important thing in the world that I’m talking about. The most important thing, of course, is to overcome sin, and we’ve studied on that in other teachings but right now we’re talking about not limiting God and seeing just how big He is. It doesn’t matter what your need is. God has promised to meet your need.
Do I say you won’t be tried? Absolutely not. You’re going to be tried. How do you get tried? By lack. You get tried by lack. God suffered the Israelites to lack so that He might know what they would do (Deuteronomy 8:2,3). What are you going to do when you lack? Do you never get sick? No, you get sick sometimes, but the Bible says by His stripes you were healed (1 Peter 2:24). It’s a trial of your faith.
God’s wanting to see, “What are you going to do with this?” We are being tried. We are going through the wilderness just like the Israelites went through the wilderness. When they went through the wilderness, they suffered lack in this kind of a way and then in that kind of a way and then in this kind of way, and God answered miraculously.
Right now, the righteous, just like always, shall live from faith (Galatians 3:11). The life of faith is an exciting walk with the Lord. You’ll see many miracles, if you walk the walk of faith. That’s our purpose for being here. God considers a person who walks by faith and speaks faith and uses faith in the circumstances they get in, to be righteous. He calls them “righteous,” like Abraham when he believed God about his seed.
That didn’t have anything to do with salvation. God called Abraham righteous because he believed God in that point and, you know what? God calls you righteous every time you believe the Word of God. Every time you believe in the prayers that you’ve prayed, whenever you pray believing you have received (Mark 11:24), when you keep on holding onto that in faith until you see it manifested, then God calls you righteous.
Look at it as if Jesus is taking you by the hand. He’s going to show you something tomorrow. He is going to do a miracle through you tomorrow. Big or small, He’s going to show you how to walk by faith. Jesus walked by faith. His disciples walked by faith. People who are in the world are under bondage, but people who walk by faith are not under that bondage. When Jesus sent out His disciples, He told them “Don’t take anything with you, don’t take any money” (Matthew 10:9,10; Luke 10:4).
He sent them out in total weakness and later He asked them, “Well, when I sent you out without all these things did you lack anything?” and their answer was, “No, Lord” (Luke 22:35). They found out what it was to walk by faith. They didn’t need to bring their own supply because God was there. He did it on purpose. Now in this day, the church is supposed to be doing the same thing. If you obey what Jesus said, you’ll be weak, because Jesus made some statements in there that put you in a position of weakness; but every time you’re going to see miracles.
When you obey the principles of Jesus, you’re going to see miracles because you’re always in a position where you can’t do it, you can’t handle it. He does that on purpose. (Mat.14:25) And in the fourth watch of the night he came unto them, walking upon the sea.
(26) And when the disciples saw him walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, It is a ghost; and they cried out for fear. (27) But straightway Jesus spake unto them, saying, Be of good cheer; it is I; be not afraid. (28) And Peter answered him and said, Lord, if it be thou, bid me come unto thee upon the waters. (29) And he said, Come. And Peter went down from the boat, and walked upon the waters to come to Jesus. (30) But when he saw the wind, he was afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried out, saying, Lord, save me.
That’s the word sozo right there. By grace have you been saved through faith (Ephesians 2:8). (31) And immediately Jesus stretched forth his hand, and took hold of him, and saith unto him, O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt? (32) And when they were gone up into the boat, the wind ceased. (33) And they that were in the boat worshipped him, saying, Of a truth thou art the Son of God.
You know, the Lord saved Peter here even in his failure, didn’t He? Every trial is from God. Every trial. God is sovereign. (Joh.3:27) … A man can receive nothing, except it have been given him from heaven. The circumstances you get in are not by accident. There’s no such thing as an accident or luck. That’s for the pagans to believe in.
When Peter took his eyes off Jesus and saw the wind, then he judged by the circumstance instead of judging by the Word. If he would have judged by the Word, when the almighty God said, “Come,” then Peter must have been able to do it, since He said it. That’s the way we have to look at these promises. We must be able to do it because He said it. It’s really simple. Peter believed if Jesus said it, he’d be able to do it and he stepped out of the boat, but then he got his eyes on the circumstances.
You always get fearful when you get your eyes on the circumstance because you don’t have any hope. Get your eyes on the Savior. You can walk on water when you get your eyes on the Savior. Listen, the laws of faith are totally above the laws of nature; they’re always above the laws of nature. We just can’t fathom how God could do some of these things.
We can’t fathom how the lot can come up like it does. Can you think about flipping a quarter up in the air and it coming down exactly the way God wants it to come down? The lot worked. Go back and study it. The lot worked. Why? That wasn’t gambling because they believed in a sovereign God. I don’t suggest leading your life this way but for confirmations of what you believe God is saying to you.
That might have been gambling to some people, but it wasn’t to the Israelites. They believed in the sovereignty of God and they believed God would answer that way and He did. He did consistently, even to the extent of finding one man out of all Israel and that happened quite a few times. Saul was picked out that way (1 Samuel 10:21).
Saul’s son was picked out that way when he made a mistake with eating the honey (1 Samuel 14:32). Jonathan was picked out of all Israel. You know they took the lot by the tribe, then they went to the lot by the family, then they went to the lot by the house. They cast lots several times. But you know what? If you believe in luck, what are the chances of the thing coming out to pick one guy out of all Israel? That’s phenomenal. That’s a lot of numbers. But God is sovereign.
Well, it can be done in our day, like I said, with a quarter. I don’t recommend that people lead their life that way, but I have seen mighty miracles come to pass that way, where the answer had to be from God. But I’m just pointing out that there’s no such thing as luck. The world believes in luck and chance, but everything that comes to you is by the hand of God, even if it comes through the hand of the devil.
If you remember from reading in the book of Job, there was no luck involved in that. God was sovereign, even over the devil, and He’s still sovereign, even over the devil. God sends the devil against you so you can ‘whip him real good.’ Did you know that? God will send him against you so you can whip him, so that you learn how to walk by faith and not by sight. The devil is the one who, in most cases, administers the curse.
Who sent the curse? The Bible says that God sent the curse (Deuteronomy 28). I don’t care what men say; the Bible says God sent the curse. Who administers it? The devil does. He loves to do it. It’s his nature to do it. But, I’ll tell you, God sent the curse and God sent Jesus to deliver from the curse. He’s working from both sides.
God sent the curse to cause people to repent and turn to Him. He sent Jesus to those who will repent. And in the circumstances that we get ourselves into, God wants to show us how to give the devil a bloody nose. He wants to show us how to overcome in the circumstances, just like Jesus did. Jesus wants to move through His hand. (Isa.53:10) … The pleasure of the Lord shall prosper in his hand.
That means God is going to be successful in doing what He did through Jesus, through you. That’s what it means. God is going to do that. We should consider it done. He did this for Peter, but what was the whole point? You may think there has to be some real reason for this, that you had to be saving souls or something. No. It didn’t do anything for Peter to get out of the boat, except he learned a lesson.
We should ask God to bring us these lessons. It’s really valuable to have these lessons that we can look back on and tell to other people to encourage them in the faith and so on. God wants to do miracles through us. Right now we have a short time left for learning some lessons from God. We have a short time left for this and then great trouble is going to come, greater trouble than this land has ever seen.
And people who walk in Psalm 91-type faith and who understand about the curse, those are the people who are going to be saved through the midst of this great trouble. A lot of the people are not going to be saved. A lot of Christians, the majority, are going to die through this trouble because the people coming against this land don’t like Christians.
Let’s look at the story of the Gerasene demoniac. (Luk.8:36) And they that saw it told them how he that was possessed with demons was made whole. And the word there for “made whole” is the same as “saved”, in Greek: sozo. For Christians, we have been “made whole” from demons. It’s part of sozo.
It’s by grace. It’s not by grace if you will be. It says by grace you have been saved through faith (Ephesians 2:8). So it’s not a matter of, “Let’s see if we can convince God to deliver this person.” Jesus never tried to convince God to heal or to deliver anybody. By grace have you been Saved, healed, and delivered. It’s all past tense.
Everything’s past tense. Now there are some places where the people whom we want to deliver are not in covenant with God. And it’s strange but most of the church does not even believe that Christians can have demons. I’m going to show you that’s not true from the Scriptures. I’m going to show you that it’s a lie and anybody who has discerning of spirits knows that it’s a lie.
I can truthfully tell you almost all the people that I’ve ever cast demons out of were Christians. Jesus said it’s the children’s bread to have deliverance. When I’m talking discernment of spirits, I’m talking about the Biblical gift and that is when you see the demons. You see them manifested in their face, you see them manifested in their eyes, you see them in their body. The gift is manifested in different ways, but the discerning of spirits is to be able to see those demons. Word of knowledge can also give the identity of a demon.
Anybody who has that gift doesn’t buy that garbage about Christians not having demons. And I’ll tell you what the Lord showed me about it. Those who don’t believe that Christians can have demons quote “My spirit will not dwell in an unclean temple,” but there’s no verse like that in the Bible. It’s not there. What the Bible actually says is that the flesh is an unclean temple (Galatians 5:19). Did you know that? It’s an enemy. It’s at enmity with your spirit. It is the enemy of your spirit (Galatians 5:17).
The covering over the tent of the tabernacle in the wilderness was animal skins and guess what kind of animal skins they were? Goats. Who were the goats? The goats were those who were set on the left while the lambs, the sheep, were on the right. Well, that was goats’ hair covering it. Why? Because the flesh is the enemy of God.
The flesh can’t go to Heaven. Flesh never goes to Heaven. (1Co.15:50)… Flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God…. You either get a new body or you don’t go. You either go in spirit and in soul, or you don’t go because this body doesn’t go there. You get a new one.
The flesh is the enemy of God. God showed me this years ago. I had to have a theological reason because I was casting demons out of Christians and everybody said you can’t do that. So I went to God and said, “God, show me in the Scriptures.” And God brought me back to the tabernacle in the wilderness and He showed me, as I read about the tabernacle in the wilderness, how it represents us because we are the tabernacle in the wilderness.
The holy of holies, of course, is your spirit because that’s where God dwells. He dwells in your spirit. And then there’s the holy place representing your soul. And there’s the outer court which represents your flesh. What God showed to me I’ve never forgotten because I learned what the Christians told me was the difference between oppression and possession. They say that oppression is when the devil’s on the outside and possession is when he’s on the inside, but the Lord showed me that’s not true.
When we look at the outer court in the wilderness, we see that many wicked men went into the outer court. In fact, wicked men even came near unto the holy place and some were even killed in the holy place because they went in. But no wickedness ever entered into the holy of holies because the high priest had to be in good shape with God or he’d better not go into the holy of holies. They even tied a rope onto the foot of the high priest so if he went in there and he wasn’t walking in right covenant with God, they could drag out his body. They weren’t going in after the high priest because you’d be smitten dead if you didn’t walk in right covenant with God.
The tabernacle in the wilderness represented a Christian because God Almighty dwells in the holy of holies. We have examples in the Scriptures of wickedness coming into both the outer court and the holy place, but not into the holy of holies. God was showing me that in your holy of holies dwells the Spirit of God and only Jesus, Who is the High Priest, can go in there.
By the way, ministers don’t have a right to get into your holy of holies. They have to stay without. The One Who is the head of your being is the Lord, always the Lord. If a minister becomes your head, you become a disciple of him and you, in a way, put him in your holy of holies. That’s dangerous for him and you because then he’s between you and God. Remember from our example that wickedness did enter into both the outer court and the holy place.
Now here’s what the Lord showed me about oppression and possession. Did you know that God seeks to possess you? He just comes from a different direction, that’s all. He comes from your spirit seeking to possess your soul. Your soul is your mind, will, and emotions. That’s your walk. But the demons come in through the flesh and they also seek to possess your soul. They want to come into the holy place. They want to rule in the holy place because that’s the control over your actions, that’s the control over your thinking, that’s the control over your life. They want to control your life.
But the fallacy of the view that the worldly church gives us is that oppression is without, possession is within. However, the demons can dwell in your flesh and as long as they’re just in the flesh but not in the holy place, not in the soul, they’re still in, they’re just not in possession. Possession is when they reach into your soul. If you watch people who are demon-possessed, you’ll see this happen. One moment they’ll be totally normal but don’t think the demon left. He hasn’t left; he’s still there. I’ve had this experience with Christians. Everybody who is led by the flesh is not led by the Holy Spirit and there can be Spirit-filled Christians who are led by the flesh. The flesh is made in the image of the devil and you’re manifesting a son of the devil, if you walk after the flesh. But here’s the point. If you walk after the flesh, you’re opening yourself up to let the devil in.
You are the one who either permits or forbids. (Mat.16:19) I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven; and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. Those demons can come into your flesh.
If you give in to some sin, but what they want to do is reach into your soul. Your soul is your nature; it is the controlling factor of your natural life. When the demons reach into a person’s soul, that’s when everybody says that a person is possessed.
But, you know what? They can back out of the soul into the flesh and the person will be relatively normal. Then they’ll come in again; they’ll manifest and they’ll back out. We’ve seen people who look totally normal. Then, all of a sudden, when you’re right in the middle of preaching the Gospel, demons manifest in these people and they start crying out. Why? Were they there all the time? Yes, they were there all the time. Did they leave the person? They never ever left the person; they were there all the time. So you can be oppressed as long as the demon is in the flesh, but when he reaches into your soul, then that is possession.
Who has a right to have demons cast out? Well, let me give you a few examples. First of all, what we have in the New Testament is Jesus dealing with His Covenant people, which was Israel. That was the type and shadow of what God does today. Jesus was dealing with Covenant people.
He even said, “I was not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel” (Mat.15:24). Who was He dealing with when He cast out demons? It was the lost sheep of the house of Israel. When the pagans came, such as in the instance of the Syro-phoenician woman, then Jesus said, “it is not meet to take the children’s bread and cast it to the dogs” (Mat.15:26).
Well, what was He talking about? He was saying that the lost have no right to God’s provision. The biggest proof to me is my experience. The only time God ever let me cast demons out of a lost person I had to get permission to do it.
You have to have permission to do it because you can destroy someone by casting demons out of them. The Bible even says they’ll come back with seven worse. (Luk.11:26) Then goeth he, and taketh [to him] seven other spirits more evil than himself; and they enter in and dwell there: and the last state of that man becometh worse than the first.
So casting demons out of a lost person is not good business unless you have God’s permission, since they have no right to God’s provision. God’s provision of deliverance and healing and other blessing is for Covenant people. We are Covenant people; they are not. They have no right to it. Don’t try to give God’s pearls to the swine (Matthew 7:6); they have no right to it.
I’m going to prove it to you now from Scripture. (Mar.7:25) But straightway a woman, whose little daughter had an unclean spirit, having heard of him, came and fell down at his feet. (26) Now the woman was a Greek, a Syro-phoenician by race. And she besought him that he would cast forth the demon out of her daughter. (27) And he said unto her, Let the children first be filled: for it is not meet to take the children’s bread and cast it to the dogs. He’s calling casting out demons “the children’s bread.” It’s not for the world. No, it’s only for the children.
Now not only did this woman’s daughter have a demon, she also had a spirit of infirmity. We know this from the same story in Matthew. (Mat.15:28) … And her daughter was healed from that hour. So her daughter was healed at the same time that Jesus cast out the demon. The children’s bread is deliverance from demons and healing in the body and all these things.
Why? Jesus said that His Body is our bread. Were there any demons in Jesus’ body? Was there any sickness in Jesus’ body? The reconciliation was that He gave His body for your body. See, we have a right to have a holy, delivered body. We have this right. The world does not have this right.
(Mar.7:26) … And she besought him that he would cast forth the demon out of her daughter. (27) And he said unto her, Let the children first be filled: for it is not meet to take the children’s bread and cast it to the dogs. (28) But she answered and saith unto him, Yea, Lord; even the dogs under the table eat of the children’s crumbs.
(29) And he said unto her, For this saying go thy way; the demon is gone out of thy daughter. (30) And she went away unto her house, and found the child laid upon the bed, and the demon gone out. And in Matthew, it says she was healed.
So we can see as a revelation from this example by Jesus, that someone who is a Jew according to the flesh is not necessarily a Jew according to this New Covenant. Jews in this New Covenant are those who walk in the faith of Abraham. You can’t recognize the Jew according to the flesh anymore; it’s whether they are a believer or not. It’s according to your faith or your unbelief as to whether you’re grafted in or broken off (Romans 11) -totally according to your faith. If you have faith, you’re a child. You have a right to the children’s bread.
The world has no right to the children’s bread because they are not in covenant with God. Our part of the Covenant is faith. God’s part is supply. We enter into it by faith and God enters into it with supply. It’s kind of a lopsided covenant, but that’s the way He designed it. We got a good deal and that’s why it’s called the Good News.
I’ll show you a few more verses so we can see if this is the Covenant people or the world who’s getting healed or delivered here. Now remember what Jesus believed. He showed you His doctrine, that He didn’t come to the lost people, He came to the lost sheep of the house of Israel (Matthew 15:24).
Why did He call them the “lost sheep of the house of Israel”? He called them that because, like sheep, Israel had gone astray. He wasn’t talking about the world there. And just like sheep, Israel in this day has gone astray, too. The Lord told me one time, “I sent you to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.” He wasn’t talking about physical Israel, He was talking about spiritual Israel, the lost sheep, because they are lambs who have lost their way.
The Way is the Word. In fact, in the book of Acts, they called it the Way (Acts 9:2; 19:9,23; 22:4; 24:14,22). It is a Way. We’re supposed to be walking in the Way. And that doesn’t mean in the way of God, it means in the Way of God. (Mat.8:16) And when even was come, they brought unto him many possessed with demons: and he cast out the spirits with a word (Matthew is talking about the children here), and healed all that were sick: (Mat.8:17) that it might be fulfilled which was spoken through Isaiah the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare our diseases.
He didn’t say “the world’s infirmities”; he said “our infirmities, and bare our diseases.” Who has a right to deliverance from demons and who has a right to healing? We do. They do not. In fact, you don’t have a right to give it to them, except by the permission of God. I have asked God and received permission to cast a demon out of a lost person.
We did that recently in this house. God does give permission, but He doesn’t have to. Here’s the difference: God has to give deliverance to somebody who’s in covenant because the Bible says it and He’d be a liar if He didn’t. He has to give all the promises of God. The Bible says all the promises of God are “Yes.” (2Co.1:20) For how many soever be the promises of God, in him is the yea: wherefore also through him is the Amen, unto the glory of God through us.
So I don’t care when others say, sometimes God says “No,” but if it’s concerning a promise, He says “Yes.” There is no promise in the Bible for deliverance for the world from a demon, even though we can ask God and He might give permission especially when they are affecting your life or another Christians life. That’s totally mercy. But we have a guaranteed right of deliverance, we who are in covenant with God; we have a guaranteed right.
The Bible says by His stripes you were healed (1 Peter 2:24). It’s not even a matter of convincing God; it’s an accomplished fact on the cross. It’s not as though God is going to change His mind. It’s an accomplished fact on the cross that we were delivered. So, who’s He casting these demons out of here, that He says is a fulfillment through the prophet Isaiah (Isaiah 53:4)? If it’s a fulfillment of Him taking away our infirmities, then He’s talking about deliverance of Covenant people.
Let me give you another verse. When Jesus sent out His disciples, He limited them specifically as to where they were to go. Evangelization is to the world, but we’re not talking about evangelization here, we’re talking about dealing with “the lost sheep of the house of Israel.” (Mat.10:5) These twelve Jesus sent forth, and charged them, saying, Go not into [any] way of the Gentiles, and enter not into any city of the Samaritans.
Samaritans were half-breeds. He’s cutting out the half-breeds here. Or, a Samaritan also can be a pagan who’s acting like a Christian because of how Samaria was populated. It was populated when God took away the northern 10 tribes and repopulated the area with pagans (2 Kings 17:24). And when the pagans in Samaria started dying because of the curses of the land (2 Kings 17:25), the prophet said, “Well, it’s because they don’t know the God of the land.”
So then they brought Israelites in there to train these pagans about the God of the land (2 Kings 17:27). That means, in amongst the people of God, there are some half breeds. They’ve been trained in Christianity, they know all the lingo, but they’re still pagans. I’m not saying God can’t heal them, I’m just saying they’re not Jews/Christians by nature.
We need to have discernment and pay attention to what Jesus said. I’ve had the Lord tell me, “Don’t lay hands on that person for healing.” I’ve had Him tell me and I thought they were Christians, but God just said don’t do it. I don’t know whether it was because they were in willful disobedience and they couldn’t be healed because they were in rebellion against God or whether they weren’t in covenant with God. I don’t know. I don’t have all the answers. I just know that God has told me not to do that before.
But God has healed nonbelievers and He does it for evangelistic reasons. What I’m saying is there’s a difference, though. The difference is you have no promise and there’s no guarantee. For that, you have to be led of the Spirit. But as a Christian walking by faith in God, repented up of your sins and so on and so forth, you’re guaranteed to be healed, if you will stay in covenant by faith.
Every one of us has to stay in covenant by our faith. That’s what keeps us in covenant with God. If you don’t have faith, you can’t have that part of the Covenant. It doesn’t matter that you’re saved in another part. If you have sozo over here, it doesn’t mean you have sozo over there. The Covenant is very big and the sozo is very big, but you might be able to enter into only parts of it because of your faith.
We enter into as much as we can receive through our faith. (Mat.10:5) These twelve Jesus sent forth, and charged them, saying, Go not into [any] way of the Gentiles, and enter not into any city of the Samaritans: (6) but go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. (7) And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand. (8) Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse the lepers, cast out demons: freely ye received, freely give. He was saying, cast the demons out, but only cast the demons out of Israel. They have to be first because of the Covenant.
We have another good example from the apostle Paul. (1Co.5:1) It is actually reported that there is fornication among you, and such fornication as is not even among the Gentiles, that one [of you] hath his father’s wife. (3) For I verily, being absent in body but present in spirit, have already as though I were present judged him that hath so wrought this thing,
(4) in the name of our Lord Jesus, ye being gathered together, and my spirit, with the power of our Lord Jesus, (5) to deliver such a one unto Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus. Paul turned this man over to the devil for the destruction of his flesh. He used the devil to chasten this guy to bring him to repentance. You’re probably going to waste a lot of breath trying to deliver that guy unless he repents.

My Mercy Is Pouring Down
Debbie Fenske 9/26/23
“I have extended great mercy to you, my people. My mercy is pouring down like rain. Even now. For I see your heart. I see the desires of your heart to overcome in areas.
I see your weaknesses, and you're giving in when you are overcome. But I see your desire. I see your heart. I hear your cries of repentance. And I forgive.
I see deep in your heart. I know your heart; I know your thoughts. I see your hearts as one heart with the desire to press in for more and more of me, and for more and more of my power to crush those desires, thoughts, and those temptations of your flesh, and of the world that tries to rule you.
You shall overcome! I am pouring down my mercy and my grace upon you. I am getting my Bride ready. Walk in triumph and continue triumphing for the victory won in your life.
Do this by faith. For I see the deep desires of your heart. I see purity. I look beyond the weaknesses, and I see purity there. I see victory. Overcoming victory, and purity is what I see. See it in yourselves, my children. Me in you. Look to the cross.
There, the victory was won. It has been won!! You will come into your victory individually, and as one. Praise me! Victory will come as you praise me and let the chains of weakness fall.
Through praise, in faith it is done. It IS done! I see it. Be encouraged, my children. I have nothing but great love for you. My love is a love that sees farther than you see. For I do see the end. See your victory, and rejoice in it, as you rejoice in my great love, and my great mercy, and my great grace. I see your personal, and corporate battles victoriously won by my great mercy and grace. The battles have been won in Me! Remain in me with your sight on triumphant victory! There is no defeat!”
Thank You Father! All glory and power belong to you and is ours to have overcoming faith. Thank you for raining such great mercy and great grace upon us. We receive it! We can do nothing of ourselves.
Thank you for being such a loving Father, encouraging us in the faith to overcome, and see that we are victorious, even now, by your mercy and grace, we choose to walk triumphant in over the world and our flesh, and over everything the enemy throws at us. We are, and we will continue to be victorious in you. Thank you, Jesus! All glory to you!
Revelation 12:7 Amen, Blessing and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and honor, and power, and might, be unto our God for ever and ever!
Samuel Fire 11/21/22
We went to the shops in a town a couple of hours away and we do not know anyone in this town.
We went to get a doorbell and they only had 1 left and it was greatly discounted, praise God that He always provides even when we don't expect it.
We then went into a bakery to get some lunch. We were the first customers in there but then a man came in after us and we let him go before us. We moved over to the right of him, not behind him. All these other people then came in and lined up behind him.
He paid for his lunch and then he handed the cashier lady a $100 note and told her, this is to cover the next person getting food and he looked over and pointed at us. We weren't even properly in line, praise God!
The man then quickly ran out of the store. We looked over and saw that everyone standing in line was frozen in shock and couldn't understand why he did that. The cashier lady said that we were next, and she asked us what we would like to order. I was praising God in front of everyone and giving Jesus all the Glory! Every person in there got to witness that God provides for His children!
Praise You Lord, and thank You for always taking care of us and blessing us with so much more than we want or need!
We ran out to try and find the guy to tell him about Jesus but he was already in his car driving off, but we waved, and he waved back, ALL Glory to our Heavenly Father and Jesus!
Deliverance From Rejection
Matthew Stewart 11/9/22
I would like to start out with a verse: John 8:36 “If therefore the Son shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.”
After our seven day fast, while worshipping the Lord on the eighth day meeting, I felt a great burden left off me. I knew when that happened that I had some deliverance, but I didn’t know at the time, what from. But I knew I would find out later. A few weeks later, I had a birthday and, normally, for many, many years, I have dealt with a lot of rejection regarding my birthday.
This time was different. For the couple weeks leading up to my birthday, I didn’t feel any anxiety, rejection, or depression. This time, I felt peace and love. It felt different to me because I have never felt this way before. It is amazing how much rejection tries to steal from you, tries to hold you back, and tries to keep you from receiving the Father’s love. I felt, and am still feeling, the Father’s love for me.
He wanted to show me how much He loved me, so He orchestrated so many things for my birthday, things that no man could really plan. The first thing He did was took me off of a machine I was running at work, that I had been running for the last couple of weeks, because the person who normally runs it was out on medical leave.
This machine was hurting my back, so the Lord orchestrated it so that the person that was gone came back on my birthday for a gift to me. The second thing He did for me was one of my co-workers, who is not generous nor gives anything to anyone, gave me two shirts for my birthday.
The third thing is, on one of the shirts was a number seven, which is significant to me, because when I played baseball in high school, my jersey number was seven. The fourth thing is on the second shirt was two sevens, and, with the other shirt, that makes three sevens, which means completion. The fifth thing was that my coworkers, in times past, never regarded my birthday, but on this birthday they all sang me happy birthday.
The sixth thing is that my dad texted me happy birthday, for the first time. There was a lot more that happened that day that I don’t remember, but I know the Lord made it special for me.
You don’t realize how much rejection you have until you are delivered from it. For me, rejection was a big part of my life. It had roots growing in every part of my life and my walk with God. Rejection was not only keeping me from receiving love from the Father, but my wife, my family, and my friends.
It was building up a wall between me and everyone else. For me, rejection was blocking me from really being one with Jesus; from being one in the Spirit. Rejection was destroying my marriage, and my relationship with my kids. I didn’t fully understand all of this when I had rejection. I knew a little bit of what it was doing in my life, but now, being free from rejection, I understand it more.
Now I can receive the Father’s love; now I have a relationship with the Father, and my wife, and kids. Now I don’t constantly see the Father as someone who’s constantly trying to condemn me. Now I see Him for the love and grace He gives me, even when I don’t deserve it.
Rejection has a way of twisting things in your mind; rejection has a way of making everything 100-times worse than what it really is. Now I am not afraid to receive correction. Things that would normally make me cower or destroy me emotionally, don’t bother me anymore.
I feel so much peace now in my life; the peace is indescribable. It’s like there’s no fear of anything and no worry. I know in my spirit, and in my whole being, that the Father loves me. (This made a great and powerful change in Matt and greatly blessed his family.)
A Word Regarding Rejection
This question arose when we missed an important Zoom meeting and we thought we had been rejected because of the message that was shared regarding a vision that Lord Jesus is pouring out anointing on everyone. Because we were not there, we thought we missed the blessing.
The Lord - “I Am with you; I will never leave you. I know you seek Me. Receive My love. Welcome Me and enter My love and feel My presence. I Am in you. I Am preparing you and all I can give you. Rest, relax and let go. I got you. I assure you and your life, purpose and efforts. I see and know and am glad. I accept and am happy to be with you. Keep on! Do not look back! Do not listen to lies!
My Son is pleased, and you are accepted to Me. I will pour out anointing and not withhold My blessings, receive it! Manifest and proclaim the Lord – all the kingdoms and everywhere – will rejoice! The King is here! Lead. Be. Behold your Groom! Shout in heart – show your love in actions. Allow the light to reach out and all darkness to be zero! Let My reach be from in you.
TRIUMPH! All Heaven rejoice – you are blessed in with Me! Keep refusing the enemy, keep saying no to self. Consider Me in everything. I know you want Me and I know you do try – I Am and you are, we go as one – in all. Keep in Me. Peace be with you and love.
“Ache no more,
All is for,
The One above all,
I am sure,
There is no more,
I go before,
Even with law
Or when swore,
I have borne,
Lay all on the floor,
I am at the door,
You who are poor,
I give you My all,
I make you pure,
Keep and endure,
I want you more,
I have a purpose for you – just be patient. Keep seeking Me. I Am pleased. You are worth more than you have ever known. Peace be still. The enemy and ‘self’ are conquered. Stand and declare! Victory! Go and redeem and plunder. Much awaits you. Keep speaking and seeking Me. I Am with you always. Have no doubt. What a wonderful (you) I made! I Am so delighted in you! More and more I can be with you and excited we will be together forever! See all that there is – we enjoy together. You give Me all and I can give you more of my power. You give all glory so I can use my power. You return all – I accept and delight to give and pour and more into you.
My love when you return all. My love when you see and talk. I want to lift you and carry you. You want to serve Me and there is nothing we can’t do together.
Beside, behind, ahead, inside, above and under to hold – around and between – I AM and you are. WE (are one). Let’s go and do. My blessings dear. My love and all. Thank you. And yes, I know you already want to thank Me and give Me all. Don’t let go of Me. If you wander – and wonder where I AM, I have gone before and show you. Hear Me. The best is still coming. More and more and forever. Peace. Perfection. I in you, We are in One.
My Son is so happy with you. I am excited to give. And you still give all and I want to bless you more. Be assured – don’t worry. I have done it all, let go of everything. I see you try, I bless you and forgive you. I know all and I know what you have done. (What you hate) is gone. I see only love and want you and I know you give to me, but rest, I love you more! That love you have for me and I have for you is a fire that cannot be put out and only burns hotter and bigger! My Son wants to rejoice to all for you are with Him forever.
Do not worry about what or how or where and who you are – I know you are all for Me - I am delighted. The purpose and use is not to consider or worry. It is how I see you give all to Me, this is what I am joyful about. Keep giving for I give more because I delight to.
Don’t test yourself or think harsh - but let go. You are free from this. Keep and praise as you are. I made you and now you are very dear to Me – but more so until eternity. Looking ahead, as you give to Me – I pour into you more. I receive you and My Son is so excited”
By Works Is Faith Made Perfect (1)
(Jas.2:22) Thou seest that faith wrought with his works, and by works was faith made perfect. The Greek word there for “perfect” is teleioo, and it means “reaching the end-stage, i.e. working through the entire process (stages) to reach the final phase (conclusion).” The root word of that is telos, which means “mature,” but it doesn’t matter how old you are in the Lord, you can still walk as “perfect” before God because you’re doing what you know to do. Your ignorances are covered before the Lord. They are not accounted against you. (Jas.4:17) To him therefore that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin. That’s something that you can’t get out of. If you are not doing what you know to do, then you’re not walking with the Lord, and your sins aren’t covered.
You know, I was just a baby Christian when I first started receiving signs and wonders and miracles. I didn’t even consider whether I was supposed to be given these gifts, I was just speaking faith and seeing God do things like moving storms out of the way. People think that they have to grow up in their faith. No, you don’t; the boldest people out there are baby Christians. They step out and do things that are beyond what most Christians can do who have been with the Lord many years.
In the church that I was first associated with, there were baby Christians getting miracles because they were believing God, but I saw a lot of older people in there not receiving much from the Lord. They had settled-in and it was kind of an obligation to them to go to church. They would go to the altar over and over to get prayed for about the same things, yet I saw the baby Christians getting miracles all the time. I felt sad for those baby Christians who stayed in that church after I left. I thought, “In a few years, they’re going to be just like the old people there and won’t be getting anything from the Lord, either.” They weren’t teaching a lot of faith in that church. Even though it was a full gospel-type church, there wasn’t a full gospel there.
If we want to grow up in the Lord, we need to please the God of the Bible and not pay any attention to what those old people say, because sometimes they aren’t really walking with the Lord very well. I had never heard of praying for cars and praying for things to work and so on. I didn’t have anybody around me doing such things. The church I went to had never thought about it, either. I was doing it because I saw it in the Bible, and I was reading the Bible day and night, so I just stepped out and did it. It was the grace of God in me.
It was a dead Pentecostal church that I went to, because after we left the Baptist church, we went to a Pentecostal church. They weren’t doing anything like that. My friends were saying, “You must have a gift of faith,” or, “You must have some gifts of miracles.” I never even thought about what it was; I wasn’t thinking about what I had or what I didn’t have.
Jesus said, (Mat.21:21) …If ye have faith, and doubt not, ye shall not only do what is done to the fig tree, but even if ye shall say unto this mountain, Be thou taken up and cast into the sea, it shall be done. I haven’t gotten to walk on water yet, but I’m looking forward to it.
Now, of course, if you’re in a situation where you’re possibly tired of the trial, or you’re just plain exhausted, it can become a real temptation to accept a way out other than the one the Lord wants you to take. You can give up and accept something less than what God wants you to have.
People do that all the time. Sometimes when you’re believing God for something, the devil will send second-best around really quickly, so if you’re believing God for something, don’t necessarily accept the first thing that comes along. It might be the devil sending you second-best because he doesn’t want you to see a major miracle or healing. And especially don’t accept any way out that is a work of the flesh, because there’s a curse in it somewhere.
(Jer.17:5) Thus saith the Lord: Cursed is the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the Lord. You see, every kind of an effort to save yourself by your own works, rather than through faith, is just going to end up being a curse. That’s what happened when Abraham listened to Sarah and had Ishmael by her handmaid Hagar (Genesis 16:1-12).
I remember when we first discovered faith and about trusting in God instead of acting in the works of the flesh. My oldest girl was a baby then. One day when she was just learning to walk, she stumbled and fell on her face into the carpet. After she got up, we saw she had a tooth that was broken-off. It was shattered all the way up into the gum, and you know how painful that can be.
Well, we prayed the prayer of faith over her, but it was terrible to look at her and see that broken tooth, even though she still had a grin on her face. The whole trial was for us, and we realized that really quickly, because we were the ones who had to look at this thing. We prayed that the Lord would put a brand new tooth back in there, and over the next several weeks, we saw a piece of a tooth come out through her gums.
It was forced out right through the gums, and she still had a smile on her face. It was a trial for us. So, these pieces kept coming out, and pretty soon a beautiful tooth just came right in there. It wasn’t really time for her to receive a new tooth, but it came in there and forced all those pieces and the broken tooth out. The whole time, she was just easy-going and really enjoying life. We realized that it was only a trial of our faith to have to look at this thing, so we patiently endured, and God brought the end of it.
People like to think Jesus always got immediate answers, but that’s not what the Scriptures say. Jesus didn’t always get immediate answers. There is a “work” we have to do in the meantime, in order to bring to pass what God has given us. James says we are to (Jas.1:2) Count it all joy, my brethren, when ye fall into manifold temptations; (3) Knowing that the proving of your faith worketh patience.
(4) And let patience have its perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, lacking in nothing. You see, we are expected to go through trials of our faith, and we have many examples of that. Hebrews 11 is the trial and faith chapter of people who went through great trials of their faith, yet they endured to see answers.
We’re not going to see immediate answers all the time, either. I have been doing this for over 50 years. I’ve seen some miracles, and I’ve seen other things about which I just had to be dogmatically determined to not depart from the Word of God, but to confess only the Word of God. One reason some people do not receive anything from the Lord is because they think that faith can be just in your mind, but there has to be a work that goes along with faith.
I’m not talking about your works, because we know that we’re saved by grace. (Eph.2:8 KJV) For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: [it is] the gift of God: (9) Not of works, lest any man should boast. So we know that it’s not man’s works here; it’s not the ordinary works that people do to save themselves.
(Jas.2:14) What doth it profit, my brethren, if a man say he hath faith, but have not works? can that faith save him? The fact is, according to the rest of this chapter, the answer is “No.” That faith will not save him. If you have accepted a healing, a deliverance, a provision, or a blessing from God, such as that your children have been saved, that your spouse is saved, or whatever you’re believing God for, if you do not act on that, you won’t receive anything from God.
What would be the normal action of a person who believed that promise? That’s what you have to ask yourself. “What would I do and what would I say if I really believed what this promise says?” If you really believe the promise, you are going to be giving a good report in agreement with the Word of God.
It is going to be coming out of your mouth. Ask yourself that question often, because God will correct you. “What would I say to this person if I believed that I’ve received what God says I’ve received?” Jesus did say, (Mat.21:22) And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.
(Jas.2:15) If a brother or sister (He’s giving a natural example here.) be naked and in lack of daily food, (16) and one of you say unto them, Go in peace, be ye warmed and filled; and yet ye give them not the things needful to the body; what doth it profit? Of course, in that case, the work of the Lord will be to meet their needs.
(1Jo.3:17) But whoso hath the world’s goods, and beholdeth his brother in need, and shutteth up his compassion from him, how doth the love of God abide in him? That is not your works there, that’s God’s works. When you see your brother in need, you meet his needs. (Jas.2:17) Even so faith, if it have not works, is dead in itself.
If you think you have faith, but you’re not acting it out with your mouth, your feet, and your actions, you’ve been deceived. If you think you have faith, but you’re not showing it by your rest, your peace, and your patience, you’ve been deceived. If you’re not walking in that faith, if there’s no manifestation of that faith through your body, your mind, and out of your mouth, then that’s not faith. You’ve been deceived.
(18) Yea, a man will say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: show me thy faith apart from thy works, and I by my works will show thee my faith. This is the only way we can prove we have faith. It’s what you say, it’s how you walk, it’s the peace in which you live, that proves that you believe the promise.
(Heb.4:3) For we who have believed do enter into that rest… If you really believe the promise, then you can rest, you can have peace that God has everything in His Hand, that everything is under control, and that He is going to work it out. We show our faith by our works. I’m not talking about works of the flesh, because we are not saved by the works of the flesh.
We’re not saved by any of our self-efforts to save ourselves. We’re saved by the works of God through us. The works that naturally flow out of faith, because when a person believes a promise of God, they begin to act it out with all of their being. If they don’t believe it, they act and walk contrary to it.
The Bible says, (Pro.18:21) Death and life are in the power of the tongue; And they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof. And (Rom.10:10) For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
Notice that the salvation doesn’t come until after the work that flows from that faith. If your actions disagree with that which you say you believe, it is not faith. First, you should believe with your heart, and then your mouth must “confess,” which is the Greek word, homologeo, that means “to speak the same as” or “to voice the same conclusion.”
If your works don’t agree with your faith, forget it. You’re just a double-minded person. (Jas.1:6) But let him ask in faith, nothing doubting: for he that doubteth is like the surge of the sea driven by the wind and tossed. (7) For let not that man think that he shall receive anything of the Lord; (8) a doubleminded man, unstable in all his ways. It happens all the time.
People go to receive prayer for some illness, but then they may continue to agree with the doctor that they’re still sick. If they do that, then they’ve just denied the Lord. (Mat.10:33) But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father who is in heaven. If we deny Him before men, He will deny us before the Father.
And the opposite of that is also true. (Mat.10:32) Every one therefore who shall confess me before men, him will I also confess before my Father who is in heaven. “Confess” in this verse is that same Greek word, homologeo, which means “to speak the same as.” If you really believe it, say it. Why are you going to ask for a second opinion? Isn’t God’s opinion good enough?
If you really believe God’s opinion, why are you going to go ask a doctor? Isn’t God’s opinion right? Isn’t it good? Why are you going to get the opinion of a person who walks by sight and is just going to tell you what’s wrong? They do not believe in the Word of God, and so you’re going to do what? Are you going to confess God before them? Or are you going to confess them before them?
Here’s the whole point: If you don’t “confess me before men,” if you don’t “ ‘speak the same as’ Me before men, I will deny you before the Father.” In another place it says, (Luk.12:9) But he that denieth me in the presence of men shall be denied in the presence of the angels of God. That doesn’t sound as if you’re going to get what you’re asking for.
You have the authority to deny yourself the benefits of God by not confessing Him before men. After you’ve received a healing, if someone points out to you that you’re sick and you agree with him, do you really think that you’re going to manifest that healing? Not likely. As the Bible says, (Jas.1:7) For let not that man think that he shall receive anything of the Lord; (8) a doubleminded man, unstable in all his ways.
The Word of the Lord is true. If you believe that you’re healed, why are you going to go and ask somebody else, anyway? The Bible doesn’t say to do that. (Jas.5:14) Is any among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord:
(15) and the prayer of faith shall save him that is sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, it shall be forgiven him. Are you going to get anointed by the elders but then go and ask somebody else if you got healed? Forget it, just forget it! You are to go there believing that you are going to receive your healing when you get prayed for. If you’re double-minded, don’t waste your time or anybody else’s time. (Jas.2:19) Thou believest that God is one; thou doest well: the demons also believe, and shudder.
What makes you different from the devil if you believe God is One? The devil believes that, too, but he’s not going to repent and act in faith, is he? No. (20) But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith apart from works is barren? The word “barren” here is the Greek word, argos, and it means “idle, unprofitable, useless, barren” and even “injurious.”
The King James translates it as “dead.” I’ve had people tell me, “Well, David, I want to go prove to the doctor that I’m saved, so I go show myself to him.” That’s fine, but when he tells you what he sees by sight, remember that you’re still saved, because you’re not saved by manifestation, you’re saved by faith first. Accept only what the Bible says about you.
Don’t accept anything else. Confess your sins to God to make sure that there’s nothing between you and Him, and do not deny the Lord, because if you get in front of men and deny the Lord, if you’re ashamed of His Words and Him, He’ll be ashamed of you before His Father. When men try to get you to deny the Word, even if they don’t understand that’s what they’re doing, don’t deny the Word of God. If you deny Him before men, He’ll have to deny you.
(Mat.12:33) Either make the tree good, and its fruit good; or make the tree corrupt, and its fruit corrupt: for the tree is known by its fruit. (34) Ye offspring of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh. (35) The good man out of his good treasure bringeth forth good things: and the evil man out of his evil treasure bringeth forth evil things.
(36) And I say unto you, that every idle (That’s the Greek word, argon, from the same root as argos, and here we can see from the text that it means “unfruitful.” He’s talking about the need to bear the good fruit of words that are in agreement with Scripture.) word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment. Do you know that there are many days of judgment? The Bible says, (Joh.3:18) He that believeth on him is not judged: he that believeth not hath been judged already, because he hath not believed on the name of the only begotten Son of God.
You are walking through judgment right now if you don’t believe what Jesus said. Jesus is the Word: He’s all the Word, He’s not just the “red letters.” You’re denying the Word if you speak an “idle” word, an “unfruitful” word. You are denying the Lord before men.
“They shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.” What does that mean? It means that you are still walking through judgment. “He that believeth not” on the Son “hath been judged already.” If you’re not walking by faith and confessing the Word, then you’re living under judgment.
Judgment is the Deuteronomy 28 curse all around you and there’s only one way out of that: Don’t add to, or take away from, His words. (Rev.22:18) I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, if any man shall add unto them, God shall add unto him the plagues which are written in this book: (19) and if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part from the tree of life, and out of the holy city, which are written in this book.
He tells us to (Rom.3:4) …let God be found true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy words, And mightest prevail when thou comest into judgment. Do you want to be “justified”? Do you want God to say that you’re righteous in your words when you come into judgment so that you can be delivered? That’s what He’s saying right here.
(Mat.12:36) And I say unto you, that every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment. (37) For by thy words thou shalt be justified (That means “accounted righteous.”), and by thy words thou shalt be condemned. So you see, we don’t come into God’s salvation without confessing it before men, and without walking it out.
Imagine, just as an exercise, “What would I act like if I really believed this promise?” Think about it. Search out those promises in the Word concerning the answer to the predicament that you’re in and whatever salvation you need. Also there are the catch-all promises such as, (Mar.11:24) Therefore I say unto you, All things whatsoever ye pray and ask for, believe that ye received them, and ye shall have them. But there are others that are probably specific to your situation, because God covers us with promises. So, for instance, what would you say if you actually believed that by the stripes of Jesus you were healed, as the Bible says? What would you say if you actually believed that He bore your sins?
(1Pe.2:24) Who his own self bare our sins in his body upon the tree, that we, having died unto sins, might live unto righteousness; by whose stripes ye were healed. What would you say if you actually believed that He became cursed for you and took away your curse?
(Gal.3:13) Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us; for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree. Look Jesus bore the whole curse in which is listed sin, sickness and lack of every kind. What would you act like? How would you confess this before men? How could you complete your faith? (Jas.2:22) Thou seest that faith wrought with his works, and by works was faith made perfect.
The Greek word there for “perfect” is teleioo, and it can be translated “complete,” so faith without works is incomplete. You are going to be justified by what you say in front of people, but it can be an idle word, a useless and unfruitful word, which will not give you the manifestation of what you seek. If you don’t think that this is important to God, look at how upset Jesus became with the disciples when they didn’t carry through with their faith (Matthew 8:10-12, 17:17; Mark 4:39-40; Luke 9:41).
If God counts you righteous because you believe Him for a promise or for a deliverance, if He counts you righteous because you believe His promise in the midst of your wilderness trial, then what does He say when you don’t believe Him? What does He say when you stop believing Him and you turn back to the world?
What does He say when you confess the bad report, like the spies who were sent into the Promised Land? (Num.13:28) Howbeit the people that dwell in the land are strong, and the cities are fortified, and very great: and moreover we saw the children of Anak there. (29) Amalek dwelleth in the land of the South: and the Hittite, and the Jebusite, and the Amorite, dwell in the hill-country; and the Canaanite dwelleth by the sea, and along by the side of the Jordan.
(30) And Caleb stilled the people before Moses, and said, Let us go up at once, and possess it; for we are well able to overcome it. (31) But the men that went up with him said, We are not able to go up against the people; for they are stronger than we.
(32) And they brought up an evil report of the land which they had spied out unto the children of Israel, saying, The land, through which we have gone to spy it out, is a land that eateth up the inhabitants thereof; and all the people that we saw in it are men of great stature. (33) And there we saw the Nephilim, the sons of Anak, who come of the Nephilim: and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight.
God says He is going to disinherit them and smite them with a curse. (Num.14:11) And the Lord said unto Moses, How long will this people despise me? and how long will they not believe in me, for all the signs which I have wrought among them?
(12) I will smite them with the pestilence, and disinherit them, and will make of thee a nation greater and mightier than they. He promised them the land but now he is disinheriting them for unbelief. How can He do that after He promised them? Because it is a covenant, our part is believe and then His part is to fulfill the promise. So if you don’t keep your part of the covenant YOU broke it.
Why was God so angry with them? It was because they confessed the bad report that was not what He had told them. Joshua and Caleb came back confessing the good report, but the ten others came back confessing the bad report that they couldn’t take that land. They had negative faith! Those ten thought they couldn’t take the promises, which the land represented.
(Num.14:1) And all the congregation lifted up their voice, and cried; and the people wept that night. (2) And all the children of Israel murmured against Moses and against Aaron: and the whole congregation said unto them, Would that we had died in the land of Egypt! or would that we had died in this wilderness! (3) And wherefore doth the Lord bring us unto this land, to fall by the sword? Our wives and our little ones will be a prey: were it not better for us to return into Egypt? What negative faith they spoke!
And so God said in (Num.14:28) …As ye have spoken in mine ears, so will I do to you: (29) your dead bodies shall fall in this wilderness; and all that were numbered of you, according to your whole number, from twenty years old and upward, that have murmured against me, (30) surely ye shall not come into the land, concerning which I sware that I would make you dwell therein, save Caleb the son of Jephunneh, and Joshua the son of Nun.
(31) But your little ones, that ye said should be a prey, them will I bring in, and they shall know the land which ye have rejected. Notice, they rejected the land because of unbelief. (32) But as for you, your dead bodies shall fall in this wilderness.
He really held them to their own words. They brought themselves under a curse by what they said, and it’s the same way with us. Our words can be idle or unfruitful, too. We need to ask God that He would (Psa.141:3) Set a watch, O Lord, before my mouth; Keep the door of my lips.
(Jas.2:21) Was not Abraham our father justified by works… There are so many people who speak against works, but it’s because they’re lumping all works into one bucket. We know that we are not justified by any works of man. You cannot save yourself.
You cannot be good enough. You have to be justified by Christ’s work at the Cross. So, if you believe that you were saved from sin, how would you act? How would you talk? Would you still be anxious and worried about your sins? Would you still be confessing that you’re a sinner? Would you be confessing that you have a problem, or would you put it in the Lord’s Hand by faith and watch Him do a miracle?
Many people never receive a miracle because their faith is faith without works. (Mat.15:8) This people honoreth me with their lips (They confess Him with their mouth.); But their heart is far from me. Anything for which you enter into faith with God cannot be just thoughts in your mind, it has to be manifested in your heart, your feet, your mouth, and your actions.
(Jas.2:21) Was not Abraham our father justified by works, in that he offered up Isaac his son upon the altar? Abraham had so much faith that he knew if he killed his son, God would bring him back, because God had made a promise to him that his seed would be like the stars in heaven (Genesis 15:5) or the sand on the seashore (Genesis 32:12; Hosea 1:10).
His faith was there and he was acting on his faith. (22) Thou seest that faith wrought with his works, and by works was faith made perfect (Again, that word “perfect” means “complete.” If you’re not going to act on your faith, forget it, because it’s not real faith and it will not be completed, or “made perfect.”); (23) and the scripture was fulfilled which saith, And Abraham believed God, and it was reckoned unto him for righteousness; and he was called the friend of God.
(24) Ye see that by works a man is justified, and not only by faith. “Works” was a part of it; works complete your faith. (25) And in like manner was not also Rahab the harlot justified by works, in that she received the messengers, and sent them out another way? (26) For as the body apart from the spirit is dead, even so faith apart from works is dead. He’s saying that if your works are not in agreement with your faith, it’s just like a body that’s dead, because it doesn’t have a spirit to give it life.
You may be thinking, “Well, what about Jesus? Did Jesus ever have to just walk by faith?” Let me point out to you that Jesus was always living in faith because He boldly spoke by faith before He saw anything.
Christians expect that they’ll just wait until they see before they believe, but remember what Jesus told Martha and Mary. (Joh.11:25) Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth on me, though he die, yet shall he live; (26) and whosoever liveth and believeth on me shall never die.
And, (Joh.11:40) Jesus saith unto her, Said I not unto thee, that, if thou believedst, thou shouldest see the glory of God? God expects us to believe first, and then we’ll see. That’s His demand. (Heb.11:1KJV) Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. It’s not faith if you can see the manifestation. (Rom.8:24) For in hope were we saved: but hope that is seen is not hope: for who hopeth for that which he seeth?
If you see the manifestation, obviously you don’t need faith anymore. Faith is what you have to exercise in order to see it. “Said I not unto thee, that, if thou believedst, thou shouldest see the glory of God?” We have to believe before we see.
That’s why He said in (Mar.11:24) …All things whatsoever ye pray and ask for, believe that ye received them, and ye shall have them. To believe that you have received is contrary to normal human reasoning, but then, we’re not normal humans, we’re sons of God. God is teaching us to be sons of God, so we have to believe we have received before we see it. If you don’t believe you have received, in most instances, you’re never going to see it.
Again, I point out to you that Jesus spoke before He saw. He always walked by faith. If you boldly speak your faith out of your mouth, the Bible says that God is not going to let you be put to shame (Psalm 119:46; Romans 10:11; 1 Peter 2:6; etc.) God’s people are afraid to boldly speak what others can’t see, but we can’t be afraid to confess the Lord before men. He said that if you’re ashamed of Him and His words, then He’s going to be ashamed of you before His Father. (Mar.8:38) For whosoever shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation, the Son of man also shall be ashamed of him, when he cometh in the glory of his Father with the holy angels. We can’t be ashamed of speaking His words, even before men who will not approve of us and will think we’re crazy. They will be dumbfounded when you get the miracle, and all their theology will go out the window. God wants to give them these testimonies because He’s going to convert people by these testimonies.
People may say, “Well, I can’t really hope to trust in God. I don’t have any examples of this,” but yes, you do. Let’s look at a few instances where the deliverance wasn’t necessarily manifested immediately, even in Jesus’ ministry. (Mat.8:5) And when he was entered into Capernaum, there came unto him a centurion, beseeching him, 6 and saying, Lord, my servant lieth in the house sick of the palsy, grievously tormented. (7) And he saith unto him, I will come and heal him. (8) And the centurion answered and said, Lord, I am not worthy that thou shouldest come under my roof; but only say the word, and my servant shall be healed.
(9) For I also am a man under authority, having under myself soldiers: and I say to this one, Go, and he goeth; and to another, Come, and he cometh; and to my servant, Do this, and he doeth it. (10) And when Jesus heard it, he marveled, and said to them that followed, Verily I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel. (13) And Jesus said unto the centurion, Go thy way; as thou hast believed, [so] be it done unto thee. And the servant was healed in that hour. Wow! The centurion totally confessed the Lord. He had outdone everyone in Israel, according to what Jesus said. The centurion recognized that Jesus had authority in the Kingdom of God and that He didn’t even need to come to his house; all Jesus had to do was say the word, and his servant would be healed.
Notice it was the centurion’s faith that healed his servant. “As thou hast believed, so be it done unto thee.” Jesus always has faith and He’s always with us. He said, (Heb.13:5) … I will in no wise fail thee, neither will I in any wise forsake thee. So Who is waiting on whom here? The whole point is that “as thou hast believed, so be it done unto thee.” We need to endure a trial of our faith by boldly speaking our confession, just as this centurion did. He goes on, “And the servant was healed in that hour.” Notice also that this wasn’t an instantaneous healing, it was within “that hour.”
Now we know the Bible uses the word, “hour,” in more than one way (Matthew 20:12; Mark 13:32; John 7:30; etc.), but at the very least, here it is a twelfth part of a day or night. Many times they used phrases like “the sixth hour” (for example, John 4:6) or “the ninth hour” (for example, Matthew 27:45), and those are definitely talking about an hour of time, but there are other places where “hour” is not referring to an actual hour of time. Sometimes it can be more than an hour because it’s speaking of an hour, spiritually.
For instance, in the book of Revelation, there’s an hour that’s 3 ½ years long (Revelation 12:6, 13:5, 17:12). Over in John, it says, (Joh.13:1) Now before the feast of the Passover, Jesus knowing that his hour was come that he should depart out of this world… It took a little longer than that for Jesus to leave the world, so this is another example where an “hour” is used to mean more than an hour of time. It was longer than an hour from that point before Jesus was crucified. (Joh.13:1) Now before the feast of the Passover, Jesus knowing that his hour was come that he should depart out of this world unto his Father, having loved his own that were in the world, he loved them unto the end.
So this was either a period of time, or it was a real hour, but it didn’t happen immediately. Would you forgive Jesus if He didn’t do everything perfectly from His beginning? The Bible says, (Luk.2:52) And Jesus advanced (The Greek word is prokopto, and it means “to make progress” or “increase.”) in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and men. So in other words, Jesus “grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and men.” And the Bible also says, (Heb.2:10) For it became him, for whom are all things, and through whom are all things, in bringing many sons unto glory, to make the author of their salvation perfect (This is the Greek word, teleioo, “working through the entire process to reach the final phase” or “complete.”) through sufferings. (Heb.5:8) Though he was a Son, yet learned obedience by the things which he suffered; (9) and having been made perfect, he became unto all them that obey him the author of eternal salvation. The Bible doesn’t say Jesus sinned, but it appears that He could have learned things and grown in wisdom and maturity because He had taken on real flesh (John 1:14; Romans 8:3), and He was growing up in that flesh to become the spotless, blemishless Lamb of God.
Let’s look at another example where the manifestation was not instantaneous. (Mar.8:23) And he took hold of the blind man by the hand, and brought him out of the village; and when he had spit on his eyes, and laid his hands upon him, he asked him, Seest thou aught? This is one time where Jesus asked somebody if they had received their manifestation, and let me point out to you that this wasn’t an immediate healing. Jesus asked him if he could see anything, but I don’t recommend that anybody answer, “No, I don’t see,” because the Bible says that when we pray, we are to believe that we have received. (Mar.8:24) And he looked up, and said, I see men; for I behold them as trees, walking. He didn’t see them very clearly; they were just kind of a blur. (25) Then again he laid his hands upon his eyes; and he looked stedfastly, and was restored, and saw all things clearly.
Jesus is teaching us something here: If you’re asking somebody to tell you what they have felt, seen, or heard in this world, they’re going to confess something that’s contrary to the Word. The Word says, (Mar.11:24) … All things whatsoever ye pray and ask for, believe that ye received (The promise is past tense in the original.) them, and ye shall have them. When you believe you have received, you are thanking God for the thing that you don’t see. You have received it. You are confessing it. It is yours.
When you come to the Lord, and you ask Him to save you, and you claim your salvation, do you realize that what you’re proclaiming is total perfection? It’s total deliverance from the curse and from sin, and it’s total healing for your body because salvation concerns the whole man and all of its circumstances. You’re confessing deliverance from the curse. When you claim that you’re saved, you’re claiming something by faith that encompasses all of the blessings and promises of God.
Some people don’t realize that they’re saying something by faith there; they think that they have manifested salvation. No, the truth is, when you claim that you are saved, you’re claiming everything that God promised. Everything is included in salvation, everything. It’s all past tense because it’s all done, and so that’s what you claim. You don’t say what you see, feel, and hear in the world, like those ten spies did (Numbers 13). God called it an “evil report” (Numbers 14:36).
They were being honest about what they’d seen with their eyes, but that was all the bad report because it wasn’t what God promised. They weren’t claiming what God promised and therefore they never received it. (Num.14:36) And the men, whom Moses sent to spy out the land, who returned, and made all the congregation to murmur against him, by bringing up an evil report against the land, (37) even those men that did bring up an evil report of the land, died by the plague before the Lord. So this is an example where there wasn’t an immediate healing, and notice that what the man initially spoke was contrary to the promise. Was Jesus trying to teach us something here? I believe so.
I believe we’re about to come to a day when there are going to be many immediate manifestations, but what are you going to do if you don’t get an immediate manifestation? Does it mean that God hasn’t answered? That’s what the devil tells you. That’s what unbelievers around you will tell you, and that’s what very religious people will tell you; they’ll tell you that God hasn’t answered.
Look at the story of Naaman. (2Kin.5:1) Now Naaman, captain of the host of the king of Syria, was a great man with his master, and honorable, because by him the Lord had given victory unto Syria: he was also a mighty man of valor, [but he was] a leper. (2) And the Syrians had gone out in bands, and had brought away captive out of the land of Israel a little maiden; and she waited on Naaman’s wife. (3) And she said unto her mistress, Would that my lord were with the prophet that is in Samaria! then would he recover him of his leprosy. (9) So Naaman came with his horses and with his chariots, and stood at the door of the house of Elisha.
(10) And Elisha sent a messenger unto him, saying, Go and wash in the Jordan seven times, and thy flesh shall come again to thee, and thou shalt be clean. (11) But Naaman was wroth, and went away, and said, Behold, I thought, He will surely come out to me, and stand, and call on the name of the Lord his God, and wave his hand over the place, and recover the leper. (12) Are not Abanah and Pharpar, the rivers of Damascus, better than all the waters of Israel? may I not wash in them, and be clean? So he turned and went away in a rage.
(13) And his servants came near, and spake unto him, and said, My father, if the prophet had bid thee do some great thing, wouldest thou not have done it? how much rather then, when he saith to thee, Wash, and be clean? (14) Then went he down, and dipped [himself] seven times in the Jordan, according to the saying of the man of God; and his flesh came again like unto the flesh of a little child, and he was clean. If God, through Elisha, had asked Naaman to do some great thing, Naaman would have gone and done it because he believed in salvation by works, but God only asked him to dip seven times in the Jordan. Are You Going to act on your faith?
The point there is that He just wants us to obey the Word of God, and, of course, Naaman didn’t receive his healing manifestly until he came up the seventh time. You know, sometimes the doctors may ask you to do some “great” thing, as a matter of fact.
They may tell you to fast, to not eat this or that, or to take these pills. Doctors want you to save yourself. They don’t have any problem with you doing some works to save yourself, but you have to act on the Word of God. That was the problem with Naaman until he finally realized that he was supposed to act upon the Word of God. It didn’t matter that over in Syria they had much cleaner rivers and that if he wanted to go dunk in a river, he could go over there.
You see, rest is an action, because people who don’t believe are running around trying to save themselves, and they don’t have any rest. Rest is an action in our Kingdom. It is ceasing from your works to enter into His rest. That is an action. Everyone who believes enters into rest. And while they’re resting, they confess that what the Word of God says is true. They confess they are healed, delivered, provided for, that their family is saved, and all these things. While they’re resting, they do these works. You have to be resting in God to do the works of God. You have to be ceasing from your own works to do His works.
(Heb.4:1) Let us fear therefore, lest haply, a promise being left of entering into his rest, any one of you should seem to have come short of it. (2) For indeed we have had good tidings preached unto us, even as also they: but the word of hearing did not profit them, because it was not united by faith with them that heard. (3) For we who have believed do enter into that rest; even as he hath said, As I sware in my wrath, They shall not enter into my rest: although the works were finished from the foundation of the world.
(4) For he hath said somewhere of the seventh [day] on this wise, And God rested on the seventh day from all his works; (5) and in this [place] again, They shall not enter into my rest. (6) Seeing therefore it remaineth that some should enter thereinto, and they to whom the good tidings were before preached failed to enter in because of disobedience, (7) he again defineth a certain day, To-day, saying in David so long a time afterward (even as hath been said before), To-day if ye shall hear his voice, Harden not your hearts.
(8) For if Joshua had given them rest, he would not have spoken afterward of another day. (9) There remaineth therefore a sabbath rest (Sabatismos = Continual rest) for the people of God. (10) For he that is entered into his rest hath himself also rested from his works, as God did from his. (11) Let us therefore give diligence to enter into that rest, that no man fall after the same example of disobedience. The “rest” is ceasing from your own works. You can’t do God’s works unless you’re ceasing from your works, which is seeking to save yourself. The rest doesn’t mean you’re not working; it means you’re not doing your works. If you’re resting in God, you’re doing His works with confidence.
People think, “I’m believing, but...” For example, “I’m believing, but I’m going to take this pill.” The promise doesn’t say that He needs our help. The promise says He’s already done it. If you believe that God has already done it, then you don’t have to earn it or attain it somehow by your works. What would you believe if you believed that God had already done it? What would you speak and how would you act if you believed that God had already done it? That’s what the Bible says.
Here’s an example, a common one: (Luk.17:12) And as he entered into a certain village, there met him ten men that were lepers, who stood afar off: (13) and they lifted up their voices, saying, Jesus, Master, have mercy on us. (14) And when he saw them, he said unto them, Go and show yourselves unto the priests… Well, the lepers knew what that meant (Leviticus 13:1-46, 14:1- 32).
When a person is healed of leprosy, they are to go to the priest and he examines them. If they are healed, then the priest offers a sacrifice of two turtledoves for them and they are accepted back into the congregation of the people of Israel. That’s what the Law said. Jesus told them to not worry about that, but to just go and show themselves to the priest. They knew that meant that they were healed, but when Jesus spoke that, they weren’t manifestly healed. They were walking by faith. Those lepers were walking by faith and, not only that, but Jesus spoke it by faith, because He didn’t see it.
(Luk.17:14) And when he saw them, he said unto them, Go and show yourselves unto the priests. And it came to pass, as they went, they were cleansed. And one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, with a loud voice glorifying God; (16) and he fell upon his face at his feet, giving him thanks: and he was a Samaritan. Where were the rest of them? Everybody ought to first give thanks to God. Maybe the rest were thinking, “Oh, I need to go to my family and show them what the Lord did for me,” when it should have been more important to them to go back and give thanks to God. I imagine that they had been separated from their families for a long time and there were people they really wanted to see, really wanted to go back and hug, but God wants the thanks first, doesn’t He?
We came out of the apostate church about five years ago. We spent the first three years studying on our own, going through the Bible, learning as much as we could. About two years ago we found your website and started going through all the teachings. We joined the conference talks about the time you had started doing the series on “The Real Good News.” Listening to the testimonies of the brothers has increased our faith tremendously.
Our eyes have really been opened to what living by faith is, and how to live by faith. For example, we have a Ford with 260,000 miles on it. When we learned that we could pray for our cars, we started laying our hands on it and praying fixes for it every time it started to have a problem. Now our van is running great. All our friends think we are crazy, but we know the Lord will continue to keep our van on the road for as long as we need it.
When we started working on some videos, our brand new DVD burner stopped working completely. After we asked for prayer during the broadcast, the next day the DVD burner started working again. We learned that the Lord heals more than people.
Then our daughter, who had been helping me put background videos together, woke up one morning with her wrist hurting so much that she couldn’t use her hand. We prayed for her, but her hand and arm turned purple. In the weakness of our flesh, we took her to the doctor. The doctor said that her wrist had been sprained—she would have pain for the next few weeks—and that she couldn’t use her hand. Not accepting that bad report, she refused to take the medication. After we prayed for her again, anointing her hand with oil, three days later her hand was completely healed.
We were traveling together with some brethren in Christ when their son fell and broke both of his wrists, sustaining fractures in both hands. The emergency personnel took x-rays and confirmed the broken bones. They bound his hands, telling him to go to the doctor when he got home in order to put casts on them.
However, his mom also refused to receive the bad report. We asked him if it was ok to pray for him (since he was just seventeen years old and a new believer). We agreed together, then his pain was gone. When he got home, he went to the doctor and discovered that, even though the fractures were still visible on the x-rays, they were healing on their own. Since he had NO pain and could use both of his hands perfectly, they couldn’t justify putting casts on him. The nurse and doctors were amazed, since they had never seen anything like that. His mother replied, My Lord Jesus has healed him.
The Lord has us walking on a journey through the wilderness that is going to get even more interesting now. [The Real Good News can be read for free on the website.] has really taught us to walk in faith. It came at the perfect time to strengthen our faith. PRAISE THE LORD!
(Editors Note) In the days to come the church will be cut out of worldly help by the mark of the beast them all will know the value of walking by faith.
We caution that legalism does not heal for it is not of faith. Doing things because others do them or to be accepted or admired is not faith. A person must believe they have rescived or not go down this road. As James 1 says the double minded man is not to believe he will receive anything from the Lord.

David Eells – 10/4/23
What Is Perfection?
A believer is accounted perfect by faith! He claims his perfection by faith (Heb. 10:14) For by one offering he hath perfected forever them that are sanctified. As he walks in this faith, God is able to manifest perfection in him. If the unbelieving apostate Christian claims that he is always going to be a sinner (contrary to God’s word) he will have what he says according to Jesus.
(Mar. 11:23) Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou taken up and cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that what he saith cometh to pass; he shall have it. (24) Therefore I say unto you, All things whatsoever ye pray and ask for, believe that ye received them, and ye shall have them. (Mat.8:13) And Jesus said unto the centurion, Go thy way; as thou hast believed, [so] be it done unto thee. (Mat.9:29) ...According to your faith be it done unto you. The same thing can be said of Sanctification or Holiness.
Study and see if these things are not so. There is no more important study if we want to grow up in Christ for "as thou hast believed, so be it done unto thee". We must believe only the Word. The "seed" in the text of parable of the Sower is sometimes "sperma" in Greek. Jesus said that the seed is the Word.
Only the seed of the Word can bring forth the fruit in our heart. It is God’s sperm and brings forth after His kind, but only in the good ground. Jesus said some would be "a hundredfold". This is not souls won by us for this crop is grown in our heart. (Mat.13:23) And he that was sown upon the good ground, this is he that heareth the word, and understandeth it; who verily beareth fruit, and bringeth forth, some a hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.
(Mat. 13:19) When any one heareth the word of the kingdom, and understandeth it not, [then] cometh the evil [one], and snatcheth away that which hath been sown in his heart. This is he that was sown by the way side. If we believe man rather than God we will miss the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.
(Php. 3:12) Not that I have already obtained, or am already made perfect: but I press on, if so be that I may lay hold on that for which also I was laid hold on by Christ Jesus. (13) Brethren, I count not myself yet to have laid hold (I.e. He has not yet manifested perfection.):
but one thing `I do', forgetting the things which are behind, and stretching forward to the things which are before, (14) I press on toward the goal unto the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. (Pressing forward to manifest perfection,) (15) Let us therefore, as many as are perfect, be thus minded: and if in anything ye are otherwise minded, this also shall God reveal unto you. This is perfect by faith.
Perfection is ascribed to:
Noah: (Gen. 6:8) But Noah found favor in the eyes of Jehovah. (9) These are the generations of Noah. Noah was a righteous man, [and] perfect in his generations: Noah walked with God.
Jacob: (Num. 23:21) He hath not beheld iniquity in Jacob; Neither hath he seen perverseness in Israel: Jehovah his God is with him, And the shout of a king is among them.
David: (1Ki. 11:4) For it came to pass, when Solomon was old, that his wives turned away his heart after other gods; and his heart was not perfect with Jehovah his God, as was the heart of David his father.
Asa: (1Ki. 15:14) But the high places were not taken away: nevertheless the heart of Asa was perfect with Jehovah all his days.
Job: (Job 1:1) There was a man in the land of Uz, whose name was Job; and that man was perfect and upright, and one that feared God, and turned away from evil.
Zacharias and Elizabeth: (Luk. 1:6) And they were both righteous before God, walking in all the commandments and ordinances of the Lord blameless.
Perfection is implied concerning many others:
Enoch: (Gen. 5:24) and Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him.
Elijah: (2Ki. 2:11) And it came to pass, as they still went on, and talked, that, behold, [there appeared] a chariot of fire, and horses of fire, which parted them both asunder; and Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven.
Daniel: (Eze. 14:14) though these three men, Noah, Daniel, and Job, were in it, they should deliver but their own souls by their righteousness, saith the Lord Jehovah.
Scriptures relating to perfection:
(Gen. 17:1) And when Abram was ninety years old and nine, Jehovah appeared to Abram, and said unto him, I am God Almighty; walk before me, and be thou perfect.
(Deut. 5:32) Ye shall observe to do therefore as Jehovah your God hath commanded you: ye shall not turn aside to the right hand or to the left.
(Deut. 18:13) Thou shalt be perfect with Jehovah thy God.
(Josh. 23:6) Therefore be ye very courageous to keep and to do all that is written in the book of the law of Moses, that ye turn not aside therefrom to the right hand or to the left;
(1Ki. 8:61) Let your heart therefore be perfect with Jehovah our God, to walk in his statutes, and to keep his commandments, as at this day.
(1Chr. 28:9) And thou, Solomon my son, know thou the God of thy father, and serve him with a perfect heart and with a willing mind.
(1Chr. 29:19) and give unto Solomon my son a perfect heart, to keep thy commandments, thy testimonies, and thy statutes, and to do all these things, and to build the palace, for which I have made provision.
(Job 9:20) Though I be righteous, mine own mouth shall condemn me: Though I be perfect, it shall prove me perverse. (21) I am perfect; I regard not myself; I despise my life.
(Psa. 18:32) The God that girdeth me with strength, And maketh my way perfect? (Psa. 37:31) The law of his God is in his heart; None of his steps shall slide., (37) Mark the perfect man, and behold the upright; For there is a [happy] end to the man of peace.
(Psa. 101:2) I will behave myself wisely in a perfect way: Oh when wilt thou come unto me? I will walk within my house with a perfect heart.
(Psa. 106:3) Blessed are they that keep justice, And he that doeth righteousness at all times. (Psa. 119:1) Blessed are they that are perfect in the way, Who walk in the law of Jehovah. (2) Blessed are they that keep his testimonies, That seek him with the whole heart. (3) Yea, they do no unrighteousness; They walk in his ways.
(Psa. 119:96) I have seen an end of all perfection; [But] thy commandment is exceeding broad. (Pro. 2:21) For the upright shall dwell in the land, And the perfect shall remain in it.
(Mat. 5:6) Blessed are they that hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.
(Mat. 5:48) Ye therefore shall be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect. (Mat. 19:21) Jesus said unto him, If thou wouldest be perfect, go, sell that which thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, follow me. (Luk. 6:40) The disciple is not above his teacher: but every one when he is perfected shall be as his teacher. (1 Cor. 2:6) We speak wisdom, however, among them that are fullgrown: yet a wisdom not of this world, nor of the rulers of this world, who are coming to nought;
(2 Co. 7:1) Having therefore these promises, beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all defilement of flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God. (2 Co.13:9) For we rejoice, when we are weak, and ye are strong: this we also pray for, even your perfecting. (2 Co. 13:11) Finally, brethren, farewell. Be perfected; be comforted; be of the same mind; live in peace: and the God of love and peace shall be with you.
(Eph. 4:11) And he gave some [to be] apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; (12) for the perfecting of the saints, unto the work of ministering, unto the building up of the body of Christ: (13) till we all attain unto the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a fullgrown man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ;
(Php. 1:10) so that ye may approve the things that are excellent; that ye may be sincere and void of offence unto the day of Christ; (11) being filled with the fruits of righteousness, which are through Jesus Christ, unto the glory and praise of God. (Php. 2:15) that ye may become blameless and harmless, children of God without blemish in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom ye are seen as lights in the world.
(Col. 1:21) And you, being in time past alienated and enemies in your mind in your evil works, (22) yet now hath he reconciled in the body of his flesh through death, to present you holy and without blemish and unreproveable before him. (Col. 1:28) whom we proclaim, admonishing every man and teaching every man in all wisdom, that we may present every man perfect in Christ;
(Col. 2:9) for in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily, (10) and in him ye are made full, who is the head of all principality and power: (11) in whom ye were also circumcised with a circumcision not made with hands, in the putting off of the body of the flesh, in the circumcision of Christ;
(Col. 3:14) and above all these things [put on] love, which is the bond of perfectness. (Col. 4:12) Epaphras, who is one of you, a servant of Christ Jesus, saluteth you, always striving for you in his prayers, that ye may stand perfect and fully assured in all the will of God. (1Th. 3:10) night and day praying exceedingly that we may see your face, and may perfect that which is lacking in your faith?;
(1 Th. 3:13) to the end he may establish your hearts unblameable in holiness before our God and Father, at the coming of our Lord Jesus with all his saints. (2 Tim. 2:1) Thou therefore, my child, be strengthened in the grace that is in Christ Jesus. (2 Tim. 3:17) That the man of God may be complete, furnished completely unto every good work. (Heb. 6:1) Wherefore leaving the doctrine of the first principles of Christ, let us press on unto perfection; not laying again a foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God,;
(Heb. 10:14) For by one offering he hath perfected forever them that are sanctified. (Heb. 13:20) Now the God of peace, who brought again from the dead the great shepherd of the sheep with the blood of an eternal covenant, [even] our Lord Jesus, (21) make you perfect in every good thing to do his will, working in us that which is well-pleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ; to whom [be] the glory for ever and ever. Amen. (Jas. 1:4) And let patience have [its] perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, lacking in nothing.
(Jas. 1:25) But he that looketh into the perfect law, the [law] of liberty, and [so] continueth, being not a hearer that forgetteth but a doer that worketh, this man shall be blessed in his doing. (Jas. 3:2) For in many things we all stumble. If any stumbleth not in word, the same is a perfect man, able to bridle the whole body also.
(1 Pet.5:10) And the God of all grace, who called you unto his eternal glory in Christ, after that ye have suffered a little while, shall himself perfect, establish, strengthen you. (1Jn 2:5) but whoso keepeth his word, in him verily hath the love of God been perfected. Hereby we know that we are in him;
(1Jn. 3:6) Whosoever abideth in him sinneth not: whosoever sinneth hath not seen him, neither knoweth him. (7) [My] little children, let no man lead you astray: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous: (8) he that doeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. To this end was the Son of God manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil. (9) Whosoever is begotten of God doeth no sin, because his seed abideth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is begotten of God. (10) In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother.
(1Jn. 4:12) No man hath beheld God at any time: if we love one another, God abideth in us, and his love is perfected in us; (1Jn. 5:18) We know that whosoever is begotten of God sinneth not; but he that was begotten of God keepeth himself, and the evil one toucheth him not.
Rivers Of Living Water
Samuel Fire - Mid 2019 (David’s notes in red)
I sought deliverance of spirits I did not know much about, but knew they were not Christ and they had to go. A brother and sister who follow Christ, led me through deliverance with scripture, and I confessed and repented of any sin related to these spirits. As they prayed and I felt these spirits leaving, in my mind I was praying in the Spirit in Tongues, thinking of The Lord Jesus.
I went over the thoughts of my deliberate and intentional complete life giving to Christ in the baptism I had, and scriptures such as “His Blood removes all spots and blemishes, washed whiter than snow”. In a state of relaxing to not hinder The Lord to do as required, I did not want to restrict Him in any way; it was at this moment I started to have a vision.
Throughout this vision I spoke out loud what I saw immediately to the two next to me. I first saw what seemed like a covering or a sheet, completely obscuring my eyesight to only see a clouded view of white light. I couldn’t see any dimensions, just this white light with no variance or tone difference. There were not any floors, or structures; completely just blank white area everywhere I looked and perceived.
Faintly, very far off, much like the distance of stars at night; a red, similar to a traffic light stop signal color slowly came into view. It came closer and brighter, and eventually was as close to me as though across opposite to me but not that it was within arm’s reach. Because I was calling out everything I saw to the fellow brother and sister, I heard them speak out, “Command to confess ‘Is Lord Jesus come in the flesh?’” This I did, as I remember also the scripture regarding this, to test all things unto God.
As soon as I spoke out this, the red light withdrew. It departed very quickly, almost instantly. I then only saw the white area and resumed to think on The Lord, but was confused and thought, ‘What is going on?’ Then, a really beautiful blue color appeared, similar to a midday clear sky blue.
This was immediate and filled all in front of my peripheral view and came very close to where all I could see was this vibrant blue light. I immediately said, ‘Confess Lord Jesus is come in the flesh.’ The most soft and sweet voice replied, “Yes, My Child come.” I felt and saw this light seem to reach out a hand. I was very hesitant and very cautious. The last thing I wanted was to interact to go where any evil things try to trick me. It was though this light knew what I thought.
I remembered the time I came to Christ and was sure this is the Lord Jesus Himself. I was amazed and knew that this was just like the feeling I had when I had a revelation of God and the Lord Jesus. (I received a HUG that was from Christ.) He then ‘smiled’ at me, as I only saw a blue light form, and He gently lifted His other ‘arm’ and pointed ahead.
I looked ahead to where He pointed and the view changed as the white light lifted and I saw hills of beautiful clean green with few bushy trees dotted around. It felt He pointed at a particular tree at the peak of a hill and to go to this spot. So, not knowing I moved there and seemed to sit down and rest under the shade and lean on the trunk.
My view changed to look down a hill to a river which had a forest of trees along side of it. This river was so clean that I could see the bottom. I felt so compelled to run down and jump in. (Rev 22:1-2 And he showed me a river of water of life, bright as crystal, (Representing the pure Word) proceeding out of the throne of God (In our heart) and of the Lamb,
2 in the midst of the street thereof. And on this side of the river and on that was the tree of life, (The tongue of the righteous) bearing twelve manner of fruits, yielding its fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.) The pure word flowing from the heart of the pure will bring life wherever it goes.)
Upon nearing close to the river’s edge there were other beings, whether they were other humans or angels I have no idea. (Others also partaking of the pure Word) They were all playing and splashing and being very happy and playful. All I could see was happiness and hear laughter all around.
Smiles and joy were on everyone. Full of energy and excitement I just ran into the river and plunged in completely submerging under that every part of me was under the water. (The Baptism of the death of self) Coming out I then felt very strange like a very young child, around 9 years of age.
I had this urge to run over to everyone I saw nearby and play ‘tag’ and touch everyone I could out of shear excitement and joy to be among everyone there. (We must become as little children to enter the Kingdom of Heaven. Mat 18:3 and said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye turn, and become as little children, ye shall in no wise enter into the kingdom of heaven.)
Then the vision faded and stopped, and I saw in the physical, but the feeling of it all was echoing and I had difficulty in focusing on the two brethren next to me. I was in such joy as though all this ‘dirtiness’ left, and I felt truly loved and accepted.
Please know of all my love to all who read this. Know and believe He loves you more and He can show you this. Praise be to The Lord of Hosts and King of kings forever. Glory, Honor and Might to Him for Our Father for all eternity!
Journey To God
Anonymous 2/24/23 (David’s notes in red)
My heart desires to be as close to God as possible, and I want it all the time but there’s always things trying to prevent it, and I wondered why. Then I felt this in response:
I saw a very long straight road that went up and down hills and it was sometimes flat. (I felt that this meant that He is always here with me every moment and He is everywhere all at once, but to obtain the relationship and closeness that I want with Him, permanently and every second it is a journey to get there. The long road is the journey to be as close as possible to our Father and Jesus, although it seems so far away in time, in God’s eyes it already IS. The hills are different trials and bumps in our walk, but we always want to stay on the right and only path to our Father, no matter what trial, tribulation or distraction comes our way.)
The sky was blue, and the sun was shining and there were many trees on either side of the road. But there were also houses and animals and so many things on either side. (There are so very many distractions in the physical and spiritual that try to hinder us from seeking His presence every moment and going deeper into Him. In the vision although God’s creation is beautiful it can also become the lust of the eyes, the lust of the flesh and pride of life. It can be a distraction because it is all passing away and all that matters right now is going further into Jesus and with our Heavenly Father. The houses, views, animals etc. all represent different distractions and these lusts.)
(1Jn 2:15-17 Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh and the lust of the eyes and the vainglory of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. 17 And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.)
Further in the distance where the straight road was going was a large body of water like the ocean but just before that there was a large amount of bush that could only be accessed by walking. (I felt that the bush that can only be walked through and not driven through, is walking with Jesus and great tribulation and/or greater dying to self.
Not being able to drive is letting our Father guide us and have control of our lives or letting Jesus take control. If we let Him take control when going through the trials, He will guide us to Him, and the right way and we won't get lost. But if we try to guide ourselves or go our own way, we can get lost, hurt or worse, we will die before our time.
So many things can go wrong when bushwalking; snakes, tripping, etc. and it’s hard to see far because of the bush everywhere. But God is high above and can see all and more than we can see, so we need to pray for His wisdom and knowledge and understanding.)
Above the water, I saw the Father watching but as if He was waiting for me. (I felt the water represents fully dead to self and fully manifesting the Word, rivers of living water, and resurrection life. The Father above all, is seeing, watching and waiting for all His plans and precepts to play out or manifest.
I felt once we get through the road, bush, and the water, we will be even closer to Him than we desire or could imagine, every moment permanently. We want to be as close to Him as possible every single moment, but it is a journey for us to get there and for every part of our soul and body to get there. God put the desire in us to want to be with Him and to be even closer to Him, as He wants us to be with Him and as close to Him more than we want it.) (This journey is a faith walk as described above.)
The sun is always shining bright. The Son is always showing His light, to all who walk on the earth, have the chance to choose His way, His life. (The Son’s light allows us to see the path to God and how to get there just as the light of the sun shows the road, bushes and path and bush and the Father above. If it was all dark and without the sun, we couldn't see the pathway.
Just as without the light of Jesus’ Word and the light He made through His sacrifice, we couldn't see the way to the Father.) (Jesus is the Light; He is the Word of God and the path of righteousness which He leads us on. Psa 119:105 NUN. Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, And light unto my path. Psa 43:3 Oh send out thy light and thy truth; let them lead me: Let them bring me unto thy holy hill, And to thy tabernacles.)
(The people that get distracted on the journey, can still look over and see the path and the right way because Jesus already prepared it, and His light shows it. But they choose to still look away from the path and to look at the distraction. People come along and point them to the right path, and they look over the right way for a little, because the Son is still shining, they can still see it, but they continue to not choose the right way. But they can see it as everyone in this earth can see the light, Jesus in the spiritual just like they can see everything when the sun is out in the physical.)
Surrounded In A Shell
Anonymous 3/12/23 (David’s notes in red)
I saw myself with this shell all around me, it was black and looked like hard plastic and it reminded me of plastic containers, however rather than being a rectangle shape it was a weird shape to fit my physical form. (This hard shell could be our own creation of a protective barrier we place around ourselves from being hurt by the world, caused by rejection and pain from others, fears, etc. It represents the old nature of man, the flesh. It is hard like the outer shell of a nut, or clams. It is black from a life of sin before being saved by the Lord.)
I saw the Lord grab the shell and rip it off me so quickly and easily and it felt like a Band-Aid quickly being ripped off. Although the shell was really hard and thick and in the natural, it would be hard to cut it, let alone to rip it, but it was so easy for the Lord. (We can't succeed or be set free from evil or our past heritage in our own strength. Only Jesus has the power and strength to remove all the evil from our lives and set us free from our sins by His finished work at the cross! It is His grace and faith in the Gospel that truly saves us!)
All the shell fell to the ground and all that was left of me was my form as a glowing warm light. (Christ in you, the hope of Glory!)
Col 1:27 to whom God was pleased to make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory:
(Only faith in the good news has power over sin. Gal 2:20 I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I that live, but Christ liveth in me: and that life which I now live in the flesh I live in faith, the faith which is in the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself up for me.)
Where The Heart Is
Marie Kelton 8/12/22 (David’s notes in red)
The Lord gave me an open vision of my spirit man walking in my old home. (This body) All the lights were on. As I got to the hallway everything went dark, the light was only shining where I was standing. The vision changed and all the lights were on again. The Lord was standing at the front door on the inside. (The Lord comes into our hearts to live, and He is the Light of the truth. Rev 3:20 Behold, I stand at the door and knock: if any man hear my voice and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. Joh 1:4-5 In him was life; and the life was the light of men. 5 And the light shineth in the darkness; and the darkness apprehended it not.)
I saw there was arguing in the house. I knew the Lord wanted to heal me from all that went on while I was there. I had asked the Lord why in the vision, was I at my old home; I heard, “Home is where the heart is.” (Jesus and our Father live in our hearts when we get saved and our home is not of this world but the Kingdom of Heaven. Joh 14:23 …If a man love me, he will keep my word: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him. Joh 17:16-17 They are not of the world even as I am not of the world. 17 Sanctify them in the truth: thy word is truth.
The Lord knows all the thoughts of our hearts. He wants us to surrender our old self life and the past to Him and put it all behind us, so He can heal every wound. When we are saved, we become a new creature in Christ, and we belong to Him by the sacrifice of His redeeming blood. With our hearts surrendered to Him through faith, we have a right to grace opens the door to all the healing benefits.)
(Psa 147:3 He healeth the broken in heart, And bindeth up their wounds. Psa 34:18 Jehovah is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart, And saveth such as are of a contrite spirit.
Php 3:13 Brethren, I count not myself yet to have laid hold: but one thing I do, forgetting the things which are behind, and stretching forward to the things which are before. Isa 43:18 Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old. For they have passed away in Christ.)
