The Lord is One

While praying on Monday night I was reflecting on this verse and mulling over how 3 distinct persons can be One God. When trying to explain it to my son, I always used the egg analogy, but that is an imperfect analogy.

To make a long story short, this is how the Lord explained it to me:

We know Jesus is the Word who became flesh and that in Him and through Him were all things created. ( John 1:14; Colossians 1:16-17)

In the beginning, God spoke.

Father spoke, Jesus is that Word, and Holy Spirit is the breath which carried the Word.

Man often speaks out of turn and inappropriately. We say things we don’t mean, things we shouldn’t, things which are not true and things we later retract.

God is not like that. When He speaks, it is deliberate and always True.

The entirety of Your word is truth, And every one of Your righteous judgments endures forever.
Psalms 119:160 NKJV
https://bible.com/bible/114/psa.119.160.NKJV

We also know that as a man thinks in his heart, so is he. (Proverbs 23:7)

And,

But those things which proceed out of the mouth come from the heart, and they defile a man.
Matthew 15:18 NKJV
https://bible.com/bible/114/mat.15.18.NKJV

Jesus, the Word, is the very heart of God (Father). We know God is love and Jesus is the expression of that Love, become flesh, and poured out on the cross.

I am not sure if I explained this well, but when the Lord showed it to me it made perfect sense.

Maranatha!

Red October

On September 11 2013 I shared a dream of mine. Here is a copy of what I wrote then:

I am at an arena of some sorts. I go through a door that leads me under the bleachers. My dad and daughter are standing there, peeking through people’s feet. I look and see a stage. Standing on the stage is POTUS (Obama). My dad makes a comment about how easy it would be for a sniper to get to him from where we watch under the bleachers. I feel uneasy and leave for a moment. When I return, a group of security personnel are calmly escorting my dad out of the building. I rush to get my daughter. He is not handcuffed and he walks with them peacefully. He leans and whispers in my ear, “Tell Sandy and Cathy Red October”. I think, “like the movie?” but know he is not referring to the Sean Connery film. The dream ends with me trying to text the message to its intended recipients.

I wouldn’t even mention this dream except for the heavy feeling pounding at my brain when I think about it and the cryptic message of “Red October”. I think my dad in the dream is completely irrelevant. He will never say such a thing, be in such a position. I’m unsure of what this dream means, if it even has a meaning, but I present it to you for your speculation.

That dream has stayed with me, and I still don’t know if it has any significance.

My curiosity was piqued when I saw this video in my YouTube feed. Is there any connection? Has anyone else had any kind of dream/vision regarding a red October? Is it “a thing”?

Visions of WWIII and the Tribulation…..

I am always cautious when I hear or read of someone having a prophetic vision. I believe there is a sect of bloggers, vloggers and “truthers” out there capitalizing on the increased awareness/interest of end times events. So much is sensationalized and well-meaning truth seekers can become victims of deceit very easily. 

The story of the secularist Jewish boy Nathan comes to mind. When his vision hit YouTube, so-called prophecy watchers were all over it. Otherwise respectable people soaked up his every word as if he was truly given a message from God. Don’t get me wrong, I believe Nathan is sincere and did indeed have a vision. I just don’t think it was from God. I say this because 1. Nathan said the Messiah is already here and 2. they need to do good works. Folks, that is not the Gospel. Jesus is Messiah. He was here but is for now at the right hand of the throne of God making intercession for His people. He is coming back, and when He does, He won’t hide among the masses but will be enthroned in Jerusalem and every knee will bow and every tongue will confess that He is Lord.  Furthermore, good works will not save anybody. Only faith in Jesus can do that.

It is very important we pray for discernment concerning reports of visions and near death experiences. 

It is with that disclaimer I present to you the vision of a boy named David. At the time of his vision, he was 16 and a nonbeliever. His family had been witnessing to him, but he remained doubtful.  

What you will hear in the audio recording of his recount of his vision is very disturbing. That is why I am sharing it. His terror and agony over what he saw is apparent and sounds too real to be fake. At one point his uncle is telling him that God is real etc and the boy exclaims, “It’s all real!” and all I could think about was the verse that says there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth for that is indeed how the boy sounded. So many people who spent their lives rejecting the Truth will one day exclaim those same words, only their agony will be their eternal reality. 

The boy’s uncle tells him God have him the vision so he may finally understand and not doubt, as well as be a witness to others. I do not know. The events described in the vision are horrific and somewhat confusing. He says average people will suddenly become crazy and kill just to be killing.  After reading of the effects of synthetic drugs such as Flakka, that cause super human strength and cannibalism, it is possible. It could also be a part of God giving rejectors of the Truth over to a debased mind. 

Anyway, below is the video by Ben Nun that brought this to my attention. He provides the original source in the description. Linked below the video is the transcript of David’s vision, as the audio can be confusing because the boy is crying hysterically throughout his retelling of what he saw. 

Time is winding down for us folks. We must be ever so diligent in spreading the Gospel and to arm ourselves with the full armor of God.

Maranatha.
