A Vision and A Miracle for the Suffering
One day I had a vision and realized I was seeing part of heaven! I saw tons of people and there was a platform. On the platform was the Lion of Judah. What thoughts do you have when you are given a vision? What questions do you have?
One thing is for sure. I know He has reasons for doing everything. The first and foremost purpose I feel that motivates Him is love.
O Jerusalem…How often I wanted to gather your children together, just as a hen gathers her brood under her wings.
He longs for the day that we will join Him. Another reason why I believe He gives us visions is; He wants us to realize what He has provided for us.
Oh, the bliss and intense delight of those clothed in washed garments – having realized the authority of the their redeemed innocence and identity; they have sourced their I-am-ness in the Tree of Life. This is their access thru the gates into the city. I am Jesus. I sent my celestial shepherd-messenger to be witness of these things to you before the churches; confirming to you that I am the Root and offspring of David, the radiant Morning Star!
Revelation 22:14, 16 MSB
A final thought on this passage. I think that because of who He is as the Lion of Judah… He wants us to know who we are because of what He did. Did you notice it says that we have a redeemed identity? It says that “They have sourced their I-am-ness.”
Your Identity is Greater Than You Might Think
You are a little “I am.” Doesn’t the bible say that we are one with Him? (John chapters 14-17.) You are not only saved so that you will inherit eternal life when you die. There is more. (Photos via Unsplash)
Jesus made the way to where you are lifted up and accepted into the family as an adopted child. You rule and reign with Him. You create with Him. He says that greater things you shall you do because of him.
I tell you this timeless truth: The person who follows me in faith, believing in me, will do the same might miracles that I do-even greater miracles than these because I go to be with my Father! For I will do whatever you ask me to do when you ask me in my name. And that is how the Son will show what the Father is really like and bring glory to him. Ask me anything in my name, and I will do it for you!” John 14:12-14 TPT
I believe that when we are serving the Lord and want to see others’ lives touched, that we should pray for things that He wants us to pray. Jesus said that He did what the Father was doing. Ask Him to show you what the Father is doing, then respond.
A Miracle for the Suffering
Recently, I was walking down a hallway by an entrance to a hotel and noticed a couple pulling into the carport to the front desk. I discerned immediately that the gal in the passenger seat was ridden with suffering. I really couldn’t see her all that well or anything inside the vehicle. It was the Holy Spirit showing me.
I walked down the hall. I hesitated. The Holy Spirit told me I needed to pray for them. So, knowing that He is spontaneous, and that this opportunity will pass in just moments, I responded and turned around.
I asked God how to start up the conversation? (I live in a state where recent restrictions on masks have been reinstated and many people are walking around tormented by fear from COVID or losing their jobs if they don’t do what they are told.) I decided that I didn’t care what the “restrictions are!” I stepped out of the boat in faith onto the water.
I started the conversation with them. The gal in the car didn’t care about the mandates either. She rolled down her window and stuck out her arm and grabbed my hand.
She had been riddled with COVID for months. We prayed and she began to cry. Then I started crying. She has been praying since last November that someone would reach out to her in prayer.
We parted ways giving glory to God for what He had done!
Jesus reaches out and does things from a place of love.
Jesus wants us to see what He has provided.
Jesus wants us to accept our full identity in Him.
He is the Lion of Judah reigning as a loving King who has all authority. Do you want to grow in your understanding of your identity? He wants you to realize who you are in Him right here on earth. Press into your source.
Lord we hunger and thirst for You! I pray that those reading this, will feel Your presence right now. I declare they will have visions and dreams! In the name of Yahshua. Receive and accept your “I am-ness,” it’s yours.
