The Veil that Covers


“Mom, why did God give us eyelids?” My son just asked me that question the other day? “Well, it’s for protection from the elements. Besides, when we sleep, we have to keep the light out and we have shields for total darkness.”

Now I was glad, he was asking about God’s creation in the whole process. At his age, sometimes, children just question, is God really behind the whole thing, or some alien life form. Or perhaps the big explosion, made these eyelids of mine. Yea, I’m thinking even my 14 year old son, wouldn’t be buying that story. The zombies make way more sense, than, “hey son, there was a big explosion in space and we all came together and your face was made. Oh, and eyelids were formed so you could blink and sleep. Isn’t that amazing?” He’d say, “Mom, you are really insane.” But look people. This is what is taught as a science in your schools to your kids. They razzle, dazzle them with a bunch of words, and make it sound like a science. By the time they come out they think it’s real. But if you break it down in simple terms, this is what they’re saying.

So, my son say’s,” why didn’t God just let our eyes get wet?” I had to laugh at the sound of all of us crying all day long.For some people with hardened hearts, it sure wouldn’t hurt. I think there are people that do things in this world, who haven’t shed a tear. At the heartbreak they have caused. They’ve never uttered the words, “I’m sorry,” to the people they have hurt. They have never bothered to humble themselves to anyone. So perhaps that would be a good idea. But that wasn’t God’s plan.

God has a plan and it is coming soon. It involves His church. He refers to His church as His bride. It is an amazing analogy as I will point out. Many on this earth have not understood. In scripture it is referred to as “a mystery.” Yes, this is because the Bride is veiled, until her time of revealing.

But veiled to whom? “And even if our gospel is veiled it is veiled to veiled to those who are perishing. 2 Corinthians4:3 Now the true church of the Lord is not a building, as many believe. He specifically told his followers, “You also are like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. (1Peter 2:5) The Lord does not deliberately veil the gospel. But what I see in this, is that there are some who are hardened and no matter how much you try to reach them, they are unwilling to soften. “So as the Holy Spirit says; “Today, if you hear his voice do not harden your hearts as you did in the rebellion, during the time of testing in the desert. (Hebrews 3:7,8)

I had a dream yesterday, that a young girl had asked for me to be some kind of a mentor to her. I don’t know if I was in a restaurant or what it was. But when we got together, she was so full of pride, she kept telling me the way it was going to be. Every time I opened my mouth, she started talking. It was as if, I was working for her, and she was my manager.She was haughty and sat towering over me, as if I was now applying for a position at her company. It was all very strange. Almost as if she just wanted me here to feed her pride. It made me wonder why I bothered coming here in the first place.  I kept my mouth shut, as the Lord reminded me, “I am opposed to the proud, but I give grace to the humble.” I realized the Lord was testing her heart.

Now, I told her, “Look, you are the one who contacted me to help you. But I cannot, if you keep trying to teach me.A student isn’t greater than the teacher. You have no experience in this area, yet you are not teachable. You will  not accept any help. I do know about this. I don’t want recognition, because I am not looking for it. But you just have made this a miserable experience. I’m afraid I will have to stop this.”

About a week later, she contacted me and asked me to help again. “I can’t do this. I really need your help. I know you can teach me, because you have experience.” “Ok,” I told her, “But this time, you will have to trust me.” I have some knowledge in this area.” The exact same thing happened. This girl rose up against me.  Every time I tried to show her something or, help her, she knew better. It was as if this was so deeply ingrained in her, she just couldn’t stop herself. She couldn’t receive direction from me. She was the same as the Lords description of the Jews in the desert, “stubborn and stiff-necked.” I couldn’t take it anymore. I said, “That’s it! You’re on your own! I have reached the end of trying to reach out to someone who wants to wallow in their own mess they’ve created. If the hand is extended and it is not taken, what can you do?” A few weeks later, I went by a fast food restaurant to pick up some food and I saw her. She was miserable and I wanted to cry. I said hello to her. She looked so sad. She had eyes, which were pleading with me, but I didn’t know what to say. I knew it was something which had to happen to break her of her pride.

This is heartbreaking in the eyes of the church. The church is God’s presence on this earth. This is why we pray, “Your kingdom come, on earth, as it is in heaven.” We are the earthen vessels, which carry this very precious treasure. The Holy Spirit. Which makes us the Holy Church. The veiled Bride. Yes, we come and we go. Into many people’s lives. Some recognize us, and some do not.

So there are many in this world who run to buildings of worship, to go to church. This is a verb. But our Lord uses the description to Peter as a noun. The true church, which our Lord is referring to, is a living breathing organism. Vessels, which are yielded for His use. Regenerated vessels, by the power of the Holy Spirit. So when we walk this earth, we Are the Church!

Now let’s look back at the examples of Jesus Christ. He went into temples. But very few times did we see these examples given to us in scripture. His core ministry was to the lost and it was out in the world. He did not find importance to impress with accolades of the priests. Human pride is the downfall of many. They too, did not recognize Him. He was our example.

He was persecuted by the Pharisees and the Saducees. All the teachers of the Law. They were filled with pride. They wanted to teach the teacher. They had no idea who stood before them. Their eyes, were veiled.

Then, the unthinkable; they blasphemed him. They told him his power came from the devil. They were all liars, yet, when they spoke against the Holy Spirit by calling him a liar, they were condemned. (Luke 12:10)

Now as, believers, we represent the true church. Yet many don’t see. The Lord tells us; “And I will ask the Father and He will give you another Advocate to help you and be with you forever-the Spirit of Truth. The world cannot accept Him, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him. But you know Him, for He lives in you and will be in you.” (John 14:15-17)

So, we see here that many people in this world run to structures, which they call churches. They may have fellowship with one another. But the true church, presents itself to us. We do not run to it. And many times, as I know from my life. As I have gone forth to be a witness, I’ve been persecuted. People have grieved the Holy Spirit. Some have even blasphemed the Holy Spirit.

And remember the Lord told us that “if the world hates you, know that it hated Me before it hated you. (John 15:18) So, we are not in bad company if feeling persecuted for no particular reason. It is because we are indwelt by His Spirit.

There’s nothing wrong with going to structures for fellowship. However, many people are inside buildings and have no relationship to Christ. That is not to say that some people in those buildings have no relationship to Christ.  By the same token, many of the true church, do not run to buildings. Just like Christ and His disciples. They did not waste time, on buildings. They ministered as they went about their daily lives. Christ gave the commission, and made no mention of “making structures.” The problem was with Judas taking in the money, if you recall. Those disciples were to get their needs met by the people along the way. The true church, as they fed the gospel, they were fed, by the Father. Their, ‘daily bread.” There was no room for corruption. And the disciples continued to work at their jobs. Interesting isn’t it? I had a young girl tell me that “the church is a business.” Which clearly showed me her lack of understanding about what the capacity of the church really is.” But this is why our Lord entered into the temple with a whip and turned over the tables.

I had not been so keenly aware in my past. We are to be consecrated for His use. If someone is turned out, of the church. It is not punishment. It is for their own consecration. To preserve their soul. The Lord loves us so much and is willing to do everything possible to bring us back. Not willing that any man should perish. He speaks of His discipline “for our righteousness.”

Many times I had dragged the Lord into acts of unrighteousness without any understanding of the Holy Spirit in my life. To keep the temple holy. It meant nothing to me. I was stubborn and rebellious and thought it was just a bunch of words. The Lord had to train me through much suffering.

His desire is to present to Himself a radiant bride. Spotless and without blemish or wrinkle. So we must see that until this time, we will suffer to that end. So, the bride is on the earth making herself ready. She is presenting herself before the masses with a message of hope. Spreading the Good News. It is a message for all mankind. I’m praying that your bitterness does not enter in and the veil be removed. The Lord wants everyone to enter into His wedding feast.

The Spirit and the Bride say Come Lord Jesus!

The Wedding Feast

 

Apocalypse Survival Guide? Read Your Bible!


Well, it seems that the whole nation is talking about the “Zombie Apocalypse,” after the bizarre incidents, taking place in the recent weeks.

But this is just escalating. It isn’t new. However, it is in my son’s world. And talking with him and his friend the other day, was hilarious. But also, quite sobering. It gave me, a teachable moment.

I had taken my son and my brother to see, The Chernobyl Diaries, a few nights before. And sorry folks, but we were laughing throughout the whole movie. My son, the hardcore, believer, even said, “That sucked. The ending was terrible!”

He is a conspiracy theorist if I ever saw one. And he was totally convinced that the Russian’s have these mutant zombies locked up, and just refuse to let us know. Hey, anything’s possible. But after he saw the movie, he was totally bummed out.

He loves a good espionage and mystery, or horror film but this was so bad, that the theater erupted in loud hoots of laughter. I’m thinking back to the time my son was telling an older lady at my brother’s bowling group, that he had smashed one of my smoke detectors, because he believed it was ‘bugged.’ The only reason I took it down, was because I had another, placed too closely to this one anyway. She very nonchalantly, asked him, “do you think you should have been doing that?” And he answered her, “Yea, the government has no business putting bugs in our smoke detectors!” I couldn’t stop laughing, as they spoke. Neither one of them seemed as if this was odd. I guess we are all desensitized by our own lack of privacy. So it seemed to be a normal conversation.

I guess I watched Enemy of the State, one too many times with him. But he is pretty astute, I will give him that. He notices things which the average person does not, and I would say his level of observance would make him a good candidate for any spy agency.

However, the conversation him and his friend were having was the means to survive the coming Zombie Apocalypse. I began to ask them the details, of such an event. His friend said, “I’m going on top of Wal-Mart. “I’m going on top of Bass Outdoor World,” my son said. “Why are you guys going on top of the buildings?” I asked. “Well, everyone knows that zombies, can’t climb!” His friend says. “Oh, I said, showing my ‘zombie-ignorance.’

Now my son begins to ask me, “What would you use against the zombies, mom?” Hmm, well, I don’t want to get up close and personal, so I’m thinking a compound bow. That sounds cool.” “Yea,” he says. “With flaming arrows, cause fire kills them.”

Well, clearly, there’s a lot I need to learn about these zombies. Then his friend tells me that his stepdad, also has been studying zombies for quite a while. I’m wondering why. But hey, if they come knockin, at least I have a neighbor, I can go to for advice. That is, from my rooftop.

Now my son is upset, because my daughter told him all the people online are saying they’re getting a spot on Bass Outdoor World. “Oh man, now I have to find some other place,” he says. Yea, it’s gonna get crowded, I told him.

So, I realized that while speaking to my friend the other day, he too said, “Oh, I have a zombie survival kit.” “What?” I was surprised. But, his mother said, “Please. I’m losing my religion, hearing all this.” I said, “Why? It’s no different from the demoniac that Jesus came upon in the graveyard. He was living there, and running around naked. Cutting himself. No one could chain him or hold him down and everyone was terrified of him.

Remember, the Lord came upon the man and it said that the man ran and fell at his feet, but the spirits cried out, have you come to torment us before our time? Then Jesus asked them their name. They told him,  “Legion, for we are many.” They begged him not to cast them out of the man, but he cast them into a herd of swine and the swine ran down the cliff and drown in the sea.

Well, I told her that this is all drug related and drugs are referred in scripture as, Pharmakae, or sorcery. So, this is the practice which the Lord referred to. Which allows anything to enter in. When we make our bodies an open portal to the spirit world by the practice of sorcery, the spirits have control and make people do things which are not natural, like eating people.

Now, if you read the book of Enoch, which was not included in the cannon of scripture, it speaks of these exact, things taking place, on the earth, thousands of years ago. That’s right, they were, using drugs, castings spells, and eating flesh! But these weren’t just people they were speaking about. They were a mutant race.

Enoch, was taken up in a whirl-wind of fire, without seeing death.I’ve never understood why, this book was not contained in scripture, but I find it fascinating. “Enoch walked with God.” This is why he did not see death. I think it’s worth reading. The descriptions are much like Revelation and you must remember that the vernacular wasn’t for the same. Many believe his “chariot of fire,”was some type of space ship. It is the same type of account given of Elijah’s departure, and in fact, they were the only two, who were taken up to the Lord, without dying.

I find it quite interesting, you will find the account of the Nephilim, (the giants) You can also read about these in the book of Genesis.  These are the mutants, most believe, the fallen angels and the daughter’s of men. And the scriptures indicate that “they existed before the flood and after.”

It would indicate from this article that they were using drugs, and using this to procreate and continue in their evil ways. A brief quote; Enoch 5 And the giants turned against then in order to devour men. And they began to sin against birds and against the animals and against the reptiles and against fish and they devoured one another’s flesh and drank blood from it. Then the Earth complained about the lawless ones.

Now this is when the Lord spoke to Noah and told him that he was sending a flood because He could not contend with creation any longer. It had become so vile that He said, He had to destroy mankind. This is when He spoke to Noah and spared a righteous remnant.

But He also said that upon Christ’s return, “it would be like the days of Noah. ” And all of these same things would be taking place. Sorcery would be at an all time high and the world would be in a state of lawlessness and rebellion.

Now, this morning I was speaking to my son, and I said, do you know where the word, ‘apocalypse’ was first used? In scripture. It means, Revelation, or unveiling. This is what is happening on this earth. So if you want to see what is happening read about it. He speaks about The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.

It is fascinating, especially to any person who studies things like this. It was my first interest when I became a believer. I wanted to study biblical prophecy and end time events. The book of Daniel and the book of Revelation, or the compatible books for study.

The most interesting thing is that Daniel was told that these things would not be revealed (apocalypse) until the time of the end, when people would be running to and fro, seeking much knowledge. Sounds like the information age, to me.

Now the drugs are also coming in from different countries, such as Pakistan, China. What better way to begin the destruction of a nation? That sounds a little like the Horsemen are beginning to ride.

There are many different theories on the end times. But it pays to study the guide written by the creator. Because, as I reminded my son, if those zombies come along, I really won’t have to worry. I have the blood of Jesus Christ and the Sword of the Spirit. That’s all the protection I need!

The King Is Coming Soon!


I watched a program on the History Channel the other night and it was all about the prophesies of Nostradamus and others. It was quite fascinating, although, I don’t really put a lot of faith in the prophetic, unless the person to whom the prophesy is flowing is submitted to the Lord.

I listened and wondered why mankind is always trying to figure out what God has already spoken in His Word. Open it up! It’s all there. The Lord gave us signs and markers and so did all of the prophets before and after His final resurrection to sit beside the Father.

Yes, read Revelation and the earlier words from the prophet Daniel. Daniel was told by the angel, “these words shall be sealed up until the end, when people are running to and fro, seeking knowledge. We are now living in what has been termed the “information age.” All the signs that Christ had spoken of before His return have been fulfilled. These all center around Israel, “the apple of Gods eye.”

The internet is the information, superhighway, and now I have also learned about the  Webbot Project. It searches all of the internet to try to predict future events. It is an interesting website, however, as I said, only one source would be needed for this endeavor. The Word of God. Yes, the book of Revelation and its words are repeated as one source, however. so many others are listed that to my knowledge, it’s confusing.

Lets, keep it simple. Read your bible and prepare for the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords, to make His return!

The Wedding Feast of the Lamb


The dream that I had about 15 years ago, is as vivid today as it was then. It’s meaning was spoken to me by the Holy Spirit as soon as I had awakened from it.

In the dream I had walked into a room and a man was sitting hunched over at a table. He was wearing the garb of a Jewish man in the ancient biblical days. I was with a girlfriend of mine and we were supposed to be on a double-date. I was with the son and she was with the father.

Soon, the son approached me and I watched as my friend sat down beside the mans father. I walked with the son to the kitchen where I started to prepare something at a counter.

I looked outside of the kitchen and saw that my girlfriend had decided to leave and the father was sad. I felt bad and didn’t know what to say. As I turned around to cut the food I thought, “I don’t want this man to see me from behind,  I don’t feel very attractive.”

At that moment it was as if he read my mind. He walked up to me and spoke into my ear, “you are so beautiful to me,” he said. Then he continued, “Come,the harvest festival is about to begin, but we must prepare for aras. I seemed to know what he meant in my dream, although, the word made absolutely no sense whatsoever.

I followed him out of the doorway and into  another room. At this point he looked at me and since he was also dressed as a Jewish man would be dressed, although he had something more; he wore veils over his face. It seemed this did not surprise me, so I must have been accustomed to this. At this point he leaned forward and whispered something in Hebrew into my ear. As he leaned back and looked into my eyes, he removed a veil from his face. He leaned forward again, and once more, he whispered into my other ear. He leaned back and removed the other veil. Once more he leaned forward, very tenderly and whispered, but this time as he removed this last veil, I looked at him and it was as if he had revealed himself to me. It was as if I had always known him and I loved him in a way that cannot be described in earthly terms. I knew his soul and he knew mine. I felt as if he and I were one. It was the most incredible love I have ever experience and made me think, I can hold on for this. No love on earth compares.

The Lord tells us that , “now I see a poor reflection as in a mirror, then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part;then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known. (1Corinthians13:12)

I felt when He looked at me, that I was fully known. But I also knew Him. It was as if I had always known Him.

It was the love spoken of in the Song of Solomon. Not something unclean or sexual as the world speaks of. This is the counterfeit and it is nothing in comparison.

When I got up from this dream, I was overwhelmed. There was so much in this dream. They are different than regular dreams.

First the Holy Spirit revealed the meaning of my girlfriend and the double-date. He showed me that she had no interest in truly having any kind of relationship with the father and this is why the father was so sad. Our father longs for a relationship with us, yet most people just abandon Him. If you’ve ever seen your father sitting alone, and looking lonely, this was the picture I had in my dream.

I had an idea that I was with the Son because I have a more intimate relationship than most people do. I have recalled even when I was a young girl, giving my life to the Lord and being very serious about this and excited about what a true relationship with Him meant in my life. I always felt His presence, even when I was slipping and felt He was my “first love.” I also know that He was calling me to come back to Him before His return. (Rev.2)

When I woke up I wrote in my journal right away. I do this when I receive a dream or vision from the Lord, to keep it fresh. The thing that I didn’t understand was the part when He took my hand and said, we must prepare for aras.”

I wondered, what language and can I find this word? I felt the Holy Spirit speaking to me, to get my Concordance and look up the word. Well, where do I start? I wondered. Is it Greek or Hebrew. Well, of course, He was speaking Hebrew into my ears. Those words I still do not remember and do not know if I shall remember until His return. As I opened the Concordance, I began to search. I prayed that I could find such a word and that the Lord could confirm it’s meaning.

I opened my eyes in amazement as my eyes fell on the page and seemed to zoom into the word-Aras; to be engaged to, betrothed, to marry. I was so awestruck. This is the marriage proposal of the Lord! He calls us His bride, the believers and this was such an intimate dream that I could not believe it. I’ve never forgotten it, yet I have longed for others to have this same type of experience. They would truly know how really He is and that He is the lover of our souls.

After that time, I had gone through many trials and I’m sure I thought that this would never happen to me. I thought that the enemy would never get his grasp on me. However, the Lord also says that in the last day “there will be a great falling away. Even the elect, if that were possible. Well, this is the apostasy that is spoken of.(Mark 13:22)But He specifically says, “if that were possible.” In my opinion, it means that it is not.

I am reminded by Him daily of this dream, however, and the final unveiling, where all shall be revealed. Now remember there are two parts to this. The wedding feast does not mean the end of the world. This is Christ coming for His church, (his bride). That is when the Holy Spirit in the body of believers shall be taken out. This will begin the time of tribulation.

The interesting thing is that He told me that the “harvest festival was about to begin.” This would seem to mean the Feast of Harvest, where the firstfruits were offered. (The Lord being the firstfruit of the resurrection) The Lord of the Harvest.

So anyone that does have a desire to understand the times we are in, should study the Feasts of the Lord, as I said many times. The are meant for Jew and Gentile to celebrate and they are also the timetable of the Lord. Of course He says, “I come like a thief in the night.” However, the bride must always be ready for her bridegroom to come and get her.

If you read the ancient wedding customs of the Jews, you will see that this is exactly why the Lord spoke about the need to always be prepared.

So I would just encourage anyone that does not know the Lord, to be ready, for His appearing. Search the scriptures and test what I am speaking to you. I am always concerned about the souls of men, and I would hope that you would find the truth.
