tornado vs faith

I dreamt of:
A. …myself attending a wedding. All the ladies who are visitors wore white gowns and the men wore tuxedos. I was tasked to call those who have roles in the wedding who were slothful sitting on the bench outside the church feeling shy. I encouraged them to be zealous and be prepared like an army. So, they fall in line to get ready for the wedding procession.

B … a tornado from dawn to morning today. In my dream, a tornado can be seen in the sky through our window. In amazement, I took my phone to capture the moment. My mom scolded me since it’s too dangerous to stay.
Then, our house started to move. Next thing, we went down through the stairs fearing the roof on the second floor might be removed due to the strong wind. However, seconds after, the things in the second floor started to throw themselves and we thought the wooden ceiling would gave up and fall over us below.
The neighborhood was already devastated, we’re the only house left. But we keep holding each other. Soon our house is being shaken as if the foundation is uprooted and the house moved feet away from its original site.
I, with other young people started to pray (apostolic-prophetic prayer). We commanded the wind to stay away and not harm us and it obeyed us. But later as it got stronger, we surrendered our lives to God, praying that if it’s time for us to die, we commit our spirit to the Lord. Nevertheless, we became spiritually stronger and prompted by the Holy Spirit to move away from the house since the monster wind is fast approaching us. We run to the open space. But my mom and other family member were still inside the house. I screamed on top of my voice, calling my mom to get out from the house. No answer. So, I returned to our half-ruined house. At the door, I saw my family with my mom holding a sack of clothes. She tried to secure clothes or other things before we fled for our lives. I felt disappointed to her saying, “Mom, our lives are more important than those things you packed up. Besides, how could you run with those heavy loads?”
Then I woke up.

Wisdom:

A.
Matthew 25:1-13Amplified Bible (AMP)

Parable of Ten Virgins
25 “Then the kingdom of heaven will be like ten virgins, who took their lamps and went to [a]meet the bridegroom. 2 Five of them were foolish [thoughtless, silly, and careless], and five were wise [far-sighted, practical, and sensible]. 3 For when the foolish took their lamps, they did not take any [extra] oil with them, 4 but the wise took flasks of oil along with their lamps. 5 Now while the bridegroom was delayed, they all began to nod off, and they fell asleep. 6 But at midnight there was a shout, ‘Look! The bridegroom [is coming]! Go out to meet him.’ 7 Then all those virgins got up and put their own lamps in order [trimmed the wicks and added oil and lit them]. 8 But the foolish virgins said to the wise, ‘Give us some of your oil, because our lamps are going out.’ 9 But the wise replied, ‘No, otherwise there will not be enough for us and for you, too; go instead to the dealers and buy oil for yourselves.’ 10 But while they were going away to buy oil, the bridegroom came, and those who were ready went in with him to the wedding feast; and the door was shut and locked. 11 Later the others also came, and said, ‘Lord, Lord, open [the door] for us.’ 12 But He replied, ‘I assure you and most solemnly say to you, I do not know you [we have no relationship].’ 13 Therefore, be on the alert [be prepared and ready], for you do not know the day nor the hour [when the Son of Man will come].

B.
Matthew 24:15-18 Amplified Bible (AMP)

Perilous Times
15 “So when you see the [a]ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION [the appalling sacrilege that astonishes and makes desolate], spoken of by the prophet Daniel, standing in the Holy Place (let the [b]reader understand), 16 then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains [for refuge]. 17 “Whoever is on the housetop must not go down to get the things that are in his house [because there will not be enough time]. 18 “Whoever is in the field must not turn back to get his clothes.

REACT: As I pondered upon my dream, I knew God is speaking to me through the dream. I knew I became so worried about some things (earthly things) these days like house, etc.

Psalms 127:1 says, “Unless the LORD builds the house, they labor in vain who build it; Unless the LORD guards the city, the watchman keeps awake in vain.”

In the end, there is one more certain and important, not our properties but our lives. I realized, yes, why do we worry so much about our food, clothes, shelter or other things? We worked so hard acquiring things which don’t have eternal value. When catastrophe strikes, we can’t carry all of them because we’ll be more concern for our refuge, our lives. And still, when havoc struck us, if we are the children of God, we’ll be left unharmed. He is our mighty defender. Our ever-strong arm.
…and Jesus is coming for a perfect bride who make herself ready!

To God be the glory!

Dream today: Heaven and lake of fire

Screen-Shot-2015-03-01-at-3.05.53-PM.png

March 10, 2017 – My dream today from dawn to morning.

A. I was riding a public transit (jeep). When we reached the crossroads, the driver deceitfully U-turned to the wrong way. I contested, but he didn’t seem to hear. He smiled as devil. But, a supernatural power stopped the vehicle so I was able to get away and waited for the right vehicle.

(Wisdom: right vs wrong direction; right vs wrong person or partner/s; the enemy comes only to kill, steal and destroy)

B. I and my mom need to go to the bank. Then heading back from downstairs became hard for me since I had a baby boy and a grocery – (rice) on my arms to carry. Then there’s a spirit filled young lady who helped me. She took the baby from me and put it inside her bag with ease and my mom took the grocery and carried it for me.

That lady carried us to a place we didn’t know. After a long walk, we entered in an old building with pre-school at the ground floor and apartment in the second floor. We need to pass on the stairs which looked fanciful and well fabricated with decorations on the outside; however its foundation is not strong. As we reach the second floor, we‘re able to rest inside her comfortable room.

(Wisdom: Don’t judge by the external factors and the way to righteousness is hard, but once you reach on top, you’ll find rest)

  1. Heaven and lake of fire

Then, while we’re inside that room, I was caught into a place where all I could see is burning liquid fire. Few of us were there: Moses, Aaron, me, Nick Carter and other Backstreet Boys band singer, Britney Spears and a loved-one so dear to me). We’re sitting on a fire-resistant white, soft surface like a mat (I’m not sure what it was like a rubber or a very thick material that couldn’t be burned) suspended above the running lava or lake of fire as if from volcano. I could not see the ending, there’s no wall, like we’re inside a cooking pot. However, we didn’t feel the heat nor the mat got burned.

We’re dressed in white robes or gown. Some of us are radiating or glowing from the light that comes from our body.  This light is a sign, a deposit Holy Spirit inside us so we can’t be harmed, especially Moses and Aaron. Accidentally or some unseen hand pushed Aaron making him dived into the lava or lake of fire underneath us. But, he was not hurt nor burned because of his white gown and the light inside him. He got wet and climbed back as if he just dived from the swimming pool of water.

Suddenly, Jesus appeared from nowhere. He’s walking towards us as if in the bible as he walks on the water towards the boat of Peter and other 12 disciples’.  I was so excited to meet Him, but my heart is a mix of fear, love and excitement. He’s such a huge man, wearing a white robe/ gown like us.

The Holy Spirit spoke to me the reason why we’re there, in that horrifying place.  It was to purify us like gold purified through fire. When Jesus turned towards me, staring at me, He’s smiling and full of love. And, I was like a baby or an infant giggling to Him saying, “Hi Jesus!” But He said nothing. Instead, His aura changed as He turned to the other person sitting next to me (members of Backstreet boys). His face was full of compassion and sadness. We communicate with the language of heaven, not with words but with our minds and hearts, so we understood what He wanted to say.

I understood that singers like them who particularly sing love songs break His heart, because those songs we’re not for Him. Even, Britney Spears who’s also there sitting with us were warned. But Jesus at that moment is so gracious and compassionate. He didn’t want anyone to be thrown into the lake of fire unprotected — those who were not wearing white robe or gown. Because obviously, if they will be submerged into the lake of fire, they’ll got burned. So Jesus gave them the grace; there’s still time to turn back to Him.

The last person I saw Jesus caught attention to was one of my loved-one. She came in as if she’s attending an interview wearing her best suit (blouse and pants) and bringing with her her laptop, Smartphone and pen. I don’t know what happened next.

(Wisdom: Those who love the world or the things of the world are enemies of God.)

Next. My spirit was carried to heaven. Then, I was flying in the sky. I could see very thick clouds and suddenly a particular picture appeared. It reads, “LOVE.” Not only that, it was meant LOVE and felt LOVE. Then I woke up from that dream. As I woke up, I pondered the vision I saw. Then I searched from the Bible scriptures that could support this great revelation, thinking were they biblical or not.

——

And…these Scriptures dawned on me.

 

Sufficient related Bible passages:

  1. 1 John 2:28– (Children of God)

And now, dear children, continue in Him, so that when He appears we may be confident and unashamed before Him at His coming.

  1. 1 John 3: 1-3 (AMP) Children of God Love One Another

“See what an incredible quality of love the Father has shown to us, that we would [be permitted to] be named and called and counted the children of God! And so we are! For this reason the world does not know us, because it did not know Him. Beloved, we are [even here and] now children of God, and it is not yet made clear what we will be [after His coming]. We know that when He comes and is revealed, we will [as His children] be like Him, because we will see Him just as He is [in all His glory]. And everyone who has this hope [confidently placed] in Him purifies himself, just as He is pure (holy, undefiled, guiltless).”

  1. 1 John 4:13-19 (NKJV) The Consummation of Love

“By this we know that we abide in Him, and He in us, because He has given us of His Spirit. And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent the Son as Savior of the world.  Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God.  And we have known and believed the love that God has for us. God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God in him. Love has been perfected among us in this: that we may have boldness in the Day of Judgment; because as He is, so are we in this world. There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love.  We love Him[a] because He first loved us.”

To God be the glory!

 

 

 

The blessing of family

Days ago, one of my 5 month old kitten died. She’s the closest to me, to the point that she sleeps with me during the night and woke we up at dawn so she’ll poop or pee outside the house.

So eventually, when she got sick, 4 days of not eating anything.. I talked to God. I told Him, “Here we go again Lord. The last time you take all my kittens I knew it because they became my idol. They occupy more of my waking time. But this time, are you dealing again with me? Why is that every time I overly loved my pets, they’ll die?” Then I cried and prayed for my cat, I lay hands to her and speak life to her. But I knew it. She’ll die. God put it in my heart. I knew it, so I was able to accept the fact. God is a jealous God, you know. The problem with me was I’m just too occupied with my pet.

Then 2 days ago, I saw my mom by the gate waiting for me. And I knew it. So I asked her, “Is she already dead?” She’s a little reluctant to answer me, because the last time she saw me cried so much is when my pet cat so dear to me died, that was last year, which I also featured here. I knew that my cat died not because it’s unusual for my mom to be awake by the time I arrived home from work, nor because it’s also unusual for her to stay outside late at night waiting for me. I knew my cat died because the Lord put it in my heart, “She’ll die.”
So what more could I do, but to accept the fact. So I bury her, my mom had just cried. She was surprised by my reaction cause I show no single pain in me. There was even joy inside me. I was released even before the day she died, because Jesus conditioned my heart the time I cried to her asking, “not again Lord..” but He’d answer back, “She would die.” So that news was no surprise to me anymore. He had spoken.

Why people grieve….
It’s not wrong to grieve. In fact, it’s biblical to grieve for your dead loved one, and to cry is a medicine to the soul. The thirst washes the pain away.

However, I learned the fact that the reason why people grieve is because they can not accept the reality of the person’s or any creature’s death or lost yet.
…hence, it’s easier on my part because I accepted the fact, God told me beforehand. Can I reason to Him?

Everything is a matter of decision…
You decide to act on something, telling yourself to do this and that. Like last week, one of the speaker in the bible class I attended to shared on how quick she forgave her dad for murdering her mom. It’s because she decided to forgave him, to act on it by faith. If she didn’t put her faith on God that she’d forgive her dad, she couldn’t look at him directly to the eyes nor could have lived with him peacefully in the same roof.

When I asked my cousin how come he changed. He no longer smoke nor drink. He said, “I just decided. It’s a choice.” Folks, everything is a matter of faith. You put your faith to Jesus, that He’d take care of the things you decided on doing, that He’d help you to consistently do it by renewing your mind, because on the first place He’s the first one to want you to do it.

Since this week’s theme is about family and marriage…allow me to share this.
Last night, my mom confessed to me, “Do you know why you did not grieve for your dead cat? It’s because the moment she died, I prayed to God that He’ll take care of your emotions, that He’ll let you accept it easily and not to grieve over it.” Honestly, I was touched by that motherly confession.
Many times my mom saved me from heartbreak by praying to God to take care of me. That’s moms for! That’s our parents. How many of you did not know that many times our parents are praying for us even it seems they didn’t? That’s how we’re blessed to have parents, so let’s continue honoring them.

To God be the glory!

The best teacher!

The teaching of Jesus—the richest food and the tastiest.

Today, I remembered My first love.
He said, “Return to me you who hide in the cleft of the rock. Come up my bride.”
Lord Jesus, if my heart is not right with you then tell me.

How wonderful and sweet it is to talk with my Father!

I was reminded of my humble beginning…
Those we’re the days when I was so depressed and sick and wanted to die, days, weeks and months…perplexed, bewildered …and there He rescued me. I was left with videos of Jesus stories (animated version)…simple yet so helpful. Repeatedly, that CD plays as if it never stops from sunrise to sunset till I kiss my pillow to sleep. Each day I was dying, but every day I listened to it, as I watched it and as it slowly envelops my being, captivating my soul,then I was relive, revive or born again. Thank you for your teaching Lord. I could have been lost, but now I’m found.
#Jesus my healer.

Our thinking controls our actions

Our thoughts become our habits

Our habits become our character

Our character becomes our destiny

Think about what you are thinking about.

Put some standard, be transformed by the renewing of our mind

Is Jesus the Lord of our manners and habits?
