Deborah Horton's vision - 09/7/2005
As I laid back down for a little more sleep after getting my husband off to work, I closed my eyes and before my head hit the pillow, here is what I saw. (I'm pretty sure I wasn't asleep because it was over when my head touched the pillow and I immediately sat back up.)
I saw a large motor home that was towing a car with its two front wheels up on a trailer behind it as it pulled in for gas at the Fast Stop convenience store, which in real life is at the entrance to our subdivision, on Highway 176 at the entrance ramp to I-26. My eyes were drawn to the license plate on the motor home and I saw it very clearly. It was similar to the North Dakota plate, which has a landscape and bison silhouette on it, but the one on the motor home had the silhouette of a cow, in red, facing toward the right. As I sat back up, I exclaimed, "The red heifer!"
The motor home was not a luxurious land yacht with all the bells and whistles; it's one that is frequently seen on the highway, so I went to my local dealer to find out what the model name is. The motor home was a Fleetwood. The car being towed was small, not a full-size model, but I don't know what make it was. I also wasn't shown any license plate on the car.
With a great deal of help from several Godly friends, here is what has been deciphered:
Deborah: From Deuteronomy, the red heifer in its entirety was sacrificed outside the camp, then the ashes were mixed with water and used to ritually purify the altar, other implements used to minister to the Lord, and the people who were to minister to the Lord or who had become ritually unclean. Without the red heifer, the Temple and worship were unacceptable.
David: The motor home is a mobile tabernacle prepared to go into the wilderness. The fuel for the motor home is a derivative of oil, which represents the anointing of the Holy Spirit. The anointing of the man-child comes at the beginning of the wilderness as it was with Jesus and Moses. Like Moses and Jesus carried Israel through the wilderness to the Promised Land, this motor home is carrying this car through the tribulation. The motor home is powered and steered by the Lord himself. Like many immature Christians, the car in tow has no driver yet and it cannot steer for itself. The motor home as the man-child has to steer for it. Like many weak Christians, the car's power is not being used.
As it was in Jesus' time so it will be in ours. The license with the red heifer symbolizes the legal, scriptural right, by virtue of a crucified life, to lead others through the wilderness on the highway of holiness. Like the red heifer, the corporate man-child will have presented his body as a living sacrifice. His old life will be burned up on the altar of fiery trials. The ashes of this purified life will be mixed with water, which is the Word of God, making a fully mature son of God. The heifer is facing to the right, symbolizing East, or the direction of the coming of the sun or Son in his life.This life will then be the wisdom and direction used to purify the altar for the rest of the remnant to be sacrificed in the wilderness. There they will learn to submit to their driver and be steered with power from God. Our way of life is coming to a fast stop at the edge of the coming wilderness.
Deborah: The model of the motor home, Fleetwood, also confirms this. We find the words "flee", "fleet", and "wood" indicating wilderness.
However, an RV is not an off-road vehicle. (Pro.16:17) The highway of the upright is to depart from evil: he that keepeth his way preserveth his soul. (Isa.11:16) And there shall be an highway for the remnant of his people, which shall be left, from Assyria; like as it was to Israel in the day that he came up out of the land of Egypt. (Isa.35:1) The wilderness and the dry land shall be glad; and the desert shall rejoice, and blossom as the rose ... (8) And an highway shall be there, and a way, and it shall be called, The way of holiness; the unclean shall not pass over it; but it shall be for those: the wayfaring men, though fools, shall not err therein.
Deborah: I was asking the Lord why the motor home, representing the first fruits, was so large, and the car, representing the remnant, was so small in comparison. I got that the faith of the relatively few first-fruits was that much bigger than all the faith of the greater number of the remnant.
David: It's true. I once ministered to a Presbyterian lady who got filled with the spirit and then left her church. She had a dream of going to three houses and when she knocked harlots answered the door. At the next house I answered the door. I asked her how many religions she had been in. She said three. It was at this time that she got delivered from the religions of men. Then she had a vision of me being a giant. I told her it was because I outgrew the doctrine she was now receiving a long time ago. In the same way the first-fruits will be big. Jesus delivered, healed, and brought truth to more people than all the Pharisees put together. He was and is big.
Robin: The crude oil that comes out of the ground needs tons of refining into gasoline or diesel before it's usable by the earthy, natural, man. Man's soul is also in dire need of the refined life of the Spirit in order to become a vessel fit for His use. (1:25) And I will turn my hand upon thee, and will purely purge away thy dross, and take away all thy tin. (Zec.13:9) And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried; and they shall call on me, and I will hear them; I will say, It is my people; and they shall say, The Lord is my God. (Dan.12:10) Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly, and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand. (Mal.3:17) And they shall be mine, saith the Lord of Hosts, in the day that I make up my jewels, and I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son, that serveth him.
Deborah: Also, the two highways which intersected: Highway 176 = (5) grace; and Interstate 26 = (8) new beginnings. I was encouraged by them that the remnant would be given the grace they need when the time comes to quickly flee to the new beginnings of the wilderness.
