How are you? I’m well.
Today, I would like to share more on my thoughts on the Rapture and the Bride of Christ, following my previous blogs, The Spirit of Fear and Preppers.
I shared some backgrounds earlier as to how my view on the timing of the Rapture changed from the post-Trib to pre-Trib. I know it’s a controversial subject and many faithful servants of the Lord all have had the different opinions. When we meet the Lord in person on that day, we would know what view was right. But by that time, we would even care less, as the joy of being with Him would be so great. Yet I’m sharing my view, as I think listening to the Holy Spirit and what He is speaking to each one of us in person is more important than listening to what others preach or prophesy.
In the autumn last year, I was reading the Scriptures that I had written down on my notebook earlier that year. One of them was
“You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt loses its flavor, how shall it be seasoned? It is then good for nothing but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot by men. (Matthew 5:13)”
While I was meditating this popular and well-known verse, I was reminded of what David Pawson taught. I recall that he mentioned the salt is used for seasoning, but it’s also used for preservative. So, Christians should live as preservative in the world that is full of sins. And the verse kept lingering in my mind after I read it from my notebook. Soon enough, I happened to listen to Pastor John Fenn and Sister Margaret Seaward mention that we are the salt of the earth, when they taught the anti-Christ and the Rapture with the verses, 2 Thessalonians 2:6~10:
“And now you know what is restraining, that he may be revealed in his own time. For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only He who now restrains will do so until He is taken out of the way. And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord will consume with the breath of His mouth and destroy with the brightness of His coming. The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved.”
And I got to learn that after the Spirit-filled believers, the salt, the preservative are raptured, then, the anti-Christ will be revealed, and the lawlessness will abound.
When I repeatedly heard the same message on these verses, after meditating the verse that we are the salt of the earth, I felt with no doubt that the Holy Spirit spoke to me. Like I shared in my previous blogs, I had the fear when I thought of the post-Trib rapture. And it actually distracted me, as I thought what I should prepare for the perilous days, in the physical or material perspective rather than the spiritual. I believe the Lord didn’t want me to live in fear nor waste my resources, but to be comforted and to prepare in a right way. There have been many good teachers and preachers who believe in the post-Trib Rapture, but I felt the Holy Spirit was talking to me through the repeated messages at the right time.
Then, I also found out another controversy among the so-called pre-Trib Rapture believers as to who would be raptured. Some say all believers, i.e. the Body of Christ will, but others say the believers who long for His return and who live holy, i.e. the Bride of Christ.
Pastor John Fenn talked about the context when Paul wrote I Corinthians to a very carnal group of believers with envy, strife, division, sexual immorality and so on in His YouTube channel. Paul said they would all ‘make it’ one the rapture, dead or alive – for after trying to correct all their carnality, all their strife, all their sinfulness in chapters 1-14, he teaches in chapter 15 all those dead in Christ, and all those alive at that time, will all go ‘up’. Yet, Pastor John also mentioned the Scriptures:
“so Christ was offered once to bear the sins of many. To those who eagerly wait for Him He will appear a second time, apart from sin, for salvation.” (Hebrew 9:28), saying his heart is that we eagerly look for Him;
“Adulterers and adulteresses! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Whoever therefore wants to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God. Or do you think that the Scripture says in vain, “The Spirit who dwells in us yearns jealously”?” (James 4:4~5)
I believe that Jesus is coming for His Bride who longs for Him, just like in Hebrews 9:28. When I talked about Christ’s return to some Christians, I found they had a long face or even got angry. Yes, they are Christians, but ironically, they don’t want to see our Lord, our Bridegroom soon. They might like the image of spirituality, as a religious person or they might need some protection and blessing from Him in this world. But they don’t want to meet Him face to face anytime soon, as they love the world and the things the world gives to them so much, just like James warned. Imagine that you are a bridegroom, and you find out your fiancée doesn’t wait for the wedding, but her heart is still on her ex-boyfriend or someone new. Would you like to marry her? I rather imagine that if these Christians are raptured, they wouldn’t appreciate it, but want to go back to the earth, to enjoy the world. Remember Lot’s wife.
I read the book, Resurrection Glory by William F. Beirnes that Sister Margaret Seaward shared in her class, The Last Days. From that book, I made sense that 24 elders in Revelation chapters 4 & 5 symbolize the Bride who are raptured before the Tribulation:
And they sang a new song, saying:
“You are worthy to take the scroll,
And to open its seals;
For You were slain,
And have redeemed us to God by Your blood
Out of every tribe and tongue and people and nation,
And have made us kings and priests to our God;
And we shall reign on the earth.” (Revelation 5:9~10)
The 24 elders have crowns of gold on their heads. (Rev. 4:4) Then, from chapter 6, the Great Tribulation starts. In the middle of it, there are still believers on the earth. Chapter 7 describes a multitude of all nations, tribes, peoples and tongues who come out of the Great Tribulation. Sister Margaret pointed out that they have palm branches in their hands, but not crowns of gold on their heads like 24 elders. It makes sense to me that they are either martyred or raptured or just died in the disasters and so forth, after they miss the first rapture. I think that some Christians who miss the first rapture, in addition to some of unbelievers, would repent, after they realize they are left behind. And they would start to experience the early part of the Great Tribulation and they would be changed to live holy and be eager to meet the Lord. They would have the heart of the Bride by then.
After the pre-Trib Rapture of the Bride makes more sense to me, I was reminded of the dreams I had last year. I shared them in my blogs, Double Portion, Will You Marry Me? and Gold last year, if you are interested. And now I could interpret the dreams as some revelation on the Bride and the Rapture. Especially at my dream in Double Portion, I got so amazed to read that I saw 24 people, and the notes “white” and “salt” in the dream.
In addition to the dreams and the interpretation in my heart, I believe Jesus’ warning that He will vomit out the lukewarm, the Laodicean church in Revelation 3 suggests that we should long for our Bridegroom and live here on earth as His pure Bride. And He also said to His disciples:
“But take heed to yourselves, lest your hearts be weighed down with carousing, drunkenness, and cares of this life, and that Day come on you unexpectedly. For it will come as a snare on all those who dwell on the face of the whole earth. Watch therefore, and pray always that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man.” (Luke 21:34~36)
You may or may not agree with me. I’m sharing my thought and might share more on this later, hoping I could encourage you to long for our Bridegroom and live holy daily, as He is holy. And I’d like you to be comforted, not to live in fear, when we see foreshadowing of things to come.
Have a bliss!
Because you have kept My command to persevere, I also will keep you from the hour of trial which shall come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth. Behold, I am coming quickly! Hold fast what you have, that no one may take your crown. He who overcomes, I will make him a pillar in the temple of My God, and he shall go out no more. I will write on him the name of My God and the name of the city of My God, the New Jerusalem, which comes down out of heaven from My God. And I will write on him My new name. (Revelation 3:10~12)
How are you? Happy New Year to you and your loved ones!
On December 17th, 2021, I read a few verses from Psalms 119. While I read the verse 38, “Confirm to your servant your promise, that you may be feared,” I said as my prayer, “Father, please confirm Your promise to me that You may be feared.” I did wonder in my heart how He would answer my prayer. I think it was a couple hours later in that morning. My eyes were on the Scripture calendar standing on the table in front of the sofa. I bought it for mom last year. I also tried to read it daily, but sometimes I forgot to flip over the calendar for the day. Then, when I saw the calendar on that day, I flipped over one page to find the Scripture for December 17th. To my utter amazement, it said,
“God is not a man, that He should lie,
Nor a son of man, that He should repent.
Has He said, and will He not do?
Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good? (Numbers 23:19)”
And there was a comment under the Scripture that God is a Promise-Keeper. I was in awe and grateful for His answering my prayer. Later in the day, I watched Shekinah Worship Center’s Thursday meeting and sang along the worship songs and felt amazed, as I kept hearing the lyrics that God is a Promise-Keeper.
A few days after, in December 20th morning, I said to my mom that I would be back soon, after throwing away our wastes. I took a few waste bags to the basement floor where the wastes of the residents in the building are collected. After that, I stopped by the lobby floor for an errand. I didn’t talk about it to mom, as I thought it would not take long. While I was running an errand, I heard an elevator behind me open and heard a familiar voice. Turning back, I saw my mom come out of the elevator, holding the arm of a security guard. I was surprised and asked him what happened. He said he was on patrol on our floor and saw her on the corridor unable to go into our place without a key. And he brought her to the lobby, not knowing I was there. I was so surprised when I unexpectedly saw her there, in her pajamas and indoor sleepers. Yet, I couldn’t thank God enough, as I felt He indeed watches over my mom. He sent the security guard just at the right time to our floor to find her and bring her to my presence. It really assured me that He won’t sleep nor slumber, but watches over us, no matter what happens. I was thankful for His faithfulness.
I do not know what you went through for the past few years. Sometimes you may feel that you are forgotten. But I would like to encourage you today to hold on to the Promise you received from God. It might be the Scriptures, dreams, visions, prophecy or still small voice in your heart. This would be personal between the Lord and you and you know it’s from Him, as His sheep hear His voice. Looking back at some dreams and visions I had, I realized that not all of them would come to pass anytime soon. Just like Abraham, Joseph, David and many others in the Bible, we might receive His promises well before we see them come true. And I learned we need both faith and patience.
Recently, I was not able to recall anything after I had a dream. Yet one thing I recalled was the song, “Somewhere Over the Rainbow.” I don’t remember whether I sang the song or heard someone sing it, but it was clearly in my mind. I felt the Lord repeating His messages to me that He is a Promise-Keeper.
And after I wrote the draft of this blog, I listened to Pastor David Guzik’s podcast sermon on 1 Samuel chapter 1. Interestingly enough, he mentioned the verses 17~18 and his insight enlightened me:
Then Eli answered and said, “Go in peace, and the God of Israel grant your petition which you have asked of Him.”
And she said, “Let your maidservant find favor in your sight.” So the woman went her way and ate, and her face was no longer sad. (1 Samuel 1:17~18)
Pastor David said that Hannah, the barren woman took Eli’s word and believed it would come true and her face was no longer sad, even before she became pregnant and became the mother of Samuel. She trusted the Lord and His promise.
Friend, I would like to encourage us to hold on to what He spoke or showed to us. Unlike men, He doesn’t tell a lie but keeps His promise. We believe His power and trust His faithfulness.
Have a bliss!
But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. (Hebrews 11:6)
How are you? Hope you had or are having a good day, today?
Today, I would like to share my findings on the apple dream I shared last week.
Like I shared in my previous blog, The Spirit of Fear, I used to think the rapture would happen in the middle or at the end of the Great Tribulation. But when I listened to the Pastor John Fenn’s teaching on Rapture, I realized it would be pre-Trib rapture and the 7 year of Great Tribulation is more for the Jews. And Apostle Paul wrote in Romans 11:25~33:
For I do not desire, brethren, that you should be ignorant of this mystery, lest you should be wise in your own opinion, that blindness in part has happened to Israel until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in. And so all Israel will be saved, as it is written:
“The Deliverer will come out of Zion,
And He will turn away ungodliness from Jacob;
For this is My covenant with them,
When I take away their sins.”
Concerning the gospel they are enemies for your sake, but concerning the election they are beloved for the sake of the fathers. For the gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable. For as you were once disobedient to God, yet have now obtained mercy through their disobedience, even so these also have now been disobedient, that through the mercy shown you they also may obtain mercy. For God has committed them all to disobedience, that He might have mercy on all.
Oh, the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments and His ways past finding out!
Pastor John Fenn posted many articles on Rosh haShanah, Yom Kippur (The Days of Atonement) and The Feast of Tabernacles and I’m sharing the link, if you want to read them. I got to understand that understanding the Jewish calendar and traditions help us understand what the Scriptures say not only about the future events, but about the way of our Lord. We know He is the God of Abraham, the God of Issac and the God of Jacob!
Later, when I started to attend Sister Margaret Seaward’s class on the Last Days, she endorsed Pastor David Guzik’s commentary. So, I searched him online and got to know he is a pastor in Santa Barbara, California and he actually provides the free commentary online, EnduringWord. And he also posted a series of teachings, God’s Plan for the Ages, including Israel the Church and the Seventy Weeks of Daniel, The Rapture, The Millennium Kingdom and so on in YouTube. He also posted his teachings on the book of Jeremiah, which includes the 7 year of Jacob’s Trouble, the Great Tribulation to come. In watching, listening to and reading these teachers’ teachings, I think I would understand what the apple dream meant. I felt the Lord wanted to let me know the key to understand the end time events is understanding the Judaism. I’m thankful to the Lord, as the dream came especially when I was worried about the future events. But, like I played the apple like a really good soccer player in the dream, I felt that if I would understand the Jewish feasts and they are the foreshadow of the things to come, there would be no reason to fear. Again, it’s not only to understand the end time prophecy in the Bible, but to understand the way of our Lord, which I might share more on later.
Not being a Bible teacher, I wouldn’t write all of them, but would like to share the links of those teachings, if you’re interested and want to be comforted, just like me. And I may write more on this later, as I also see some different views on “Then, who would be raptured?”
Have a bliss!
But concerning the times and the seasons, brethren, you have no need that I should write to you. For you yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so comes as a thief in the night. For when they say, “Peace and safety!” then sudden destruction comes upon them, as labor pains upon a pregnant woman. And they shall not escape. But you, brethren, are not in darkness, so that this Day should overtake you as a thief. You are all sons of light and sons of the day. We are not of the night nor of darkness. Therefore let us not sleep, as others do, but let us watch and be sober. For those who sleep, sleep at night, and those who get drunk are drunk at night. But let us who are of the day be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love, and as a helmet the hope of salvation. For God did not appoint us to wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, who died for us, that whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with Him.
How are you? I’m well.
On September 12th this year, I had a dream. I seemed to be in my old house where I spent my childhood and youth. There were many apples on the ground in the garden. In the middle of the garden, there was a grey-haired man sitting on a chair. He seemed to be in his early or mid 60’s. While I passed by him, I played the apple, as if I played the soccer with the apple. I was very good at it as if a good soccer player played the ball for fun. I felt kind of amused, when I played the apple with my legs and feet. And the old man watched me enjoy playing the apple, without saying anything to me. He looked like an introvert, being calm and collected. And in the background of the garden, there seemed to be a doggie or birds.
When I awoke, I was curious as to what the dream meant. And I looked up a James Goll’s book, Dream Language and read his writings on apple:
For example, let’s say that you have a dream in which an apple appears and you discern through the Holy Spirit that it symbolizes Israel because Zechariah 2:8 refers to Israel as the “apple” of God’s eye. Once the image of the apple has entered your spiritual alphabet as a symbol for Israel, you can be confident that whenever that image appears in a future dream, the dream has something to do with the nation of Israel. God is consistent with His revelatory symbolism.
Goll, James W.. Dream Language: The Prophetic Power of Dreams (pp. 139-140). Destiny Image. Kindle Edition.
Then, it dawned on me that the old man in my dream didn’t exactly look like a Caucasian nor an Asian. He must be a Jew, Middle Eastern. Then, I became more curious as to what the Lord was trying to say to me, related to Israel or the Jews, His chosen ones. So, I wanted to listen to Derek Prince’s teaching on Israel and in the middle of his teaching, I heard him mention the book, Appointment in Jerusalem, the real story of his first wife, Lydia Prince. I knew she had 8 girls in Jerusalem, including the Jews, the Arabs and an English, before she married Derek Prince. She became a mother, adopting the baby girls whom God sent to her. Somehow, I felt I must read that book, though I didn’t feel I would have the same calling in Jerusalem as Lydia had. I know we, as Christians should be thankful to the Jew and intercede for Israel. So other than the calling of intercession, I did wonder whether the Lord has something in store for me, related to Israel.
While I was reading the book, I felt that my calling would not be going to Jerusalem like Lydia Prince, but the book itself spoke to much timely. And my eyes got wet many times, when I read His faithfulness to Lydia and her girls. The book became one of my favorite books together with The Hiding Place and Letta in China. I plan to write more on my findings on the apple dream later, but for now, I would like to share what Derek Prince wrote in the appendix of the book, as I think it resonates with what I’ve been sharing on House Church:
Lydia considered her children to be her greatest legacy. While the physical houses of most of the children’s homes in Israel no longer exist, she saw her children as “living stones,” as the apostle Peter wrote about in 1 Peter 2:5 (nasb), and a number of her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren are involved in Christian ministry today. “Don’t you think I have something to be thankful for,” Lydia once said, “to be a mother to all these children?” She believed strongly in the influence parents have on their children. “I think we need to have real Christian homes. It is in the home that our Christianity shall be seen. I’m sorry to tell you that going to church doesn’t interest me nearly as much as seeing that Christ is the ruler in the homes. That He is the head. That we have peace and harmony in our homes. That’s where we can hear the voice of the Lord. “Let us see our homes as real Christian homes, and if we are at peace, the children will be peaceful. I have seen that. I could have ten children near me, and they would be quiet. Why? Because I have a peace with God, and no one will feel the peace of God as a child will. If a mother is nervous, the child gets restless.”
Prince , Derek. Appointment in Jerusalem . Whitaker House. Kindle Edition.
In the book, Lydia Prince shared her story as to how Jesus manifested Himself as a Person when she prayed and wanted to know the unknown hunger for something. And she also shared her story that she was baptized in the Holy Spirit in her own house when she was alone. Later, in Jerusalem, all of girls were baptized before they became 6 or 7 years old. And her home was known among the soldiers during the World War II. When they visited her home, they were baptized by the Holy Spirit and some of them became the pastors later. And one of the soldiers got baptized even before he stepped inside the door. It reminded me of what the late Pastor, Neville Johnson prophesized on the House Church. He said people would be healed or get delivered from the evil spirits even before they entered those small houses filled with the Holy Spirit.
Then, I would like to emphasize the importance of making our home as His dwelling place. There is always a price, and I believe keeping our eye gate and ear gate is so important for us to be His dwelling place. So many Christians spend hours on watching TV or on internet, most of which is simply rubbish. I don’t write this out of religiosity, but I would like to encourage us to think about relationship. Imagine that you’re in love with someone. You wouldn’t watch TV, leaving him or her alone. You would want to talk to and look at him or her rather than watch TV. And you would simply enjoy his or her company and do whatever you do together with your loved one. But many Christians talk and behave as if Christ isn’t with them in their places. He is always with us and we should be mindful of His presence and enjoy the fellowship with Him.
I think my story started from Israel, but it sounded a bit sidetracked. :-) Yet I believe it’s still important to love the Lord as our Bridegroom and serve Him as the real Lord in our home and to make our home His dwelling place. Hopefully next week, I will write more on my findings on the apple dream.
Have a bliss!
For thus says the Lord of hosts: “He sent Me after glory, to the nations which plunder you; for he who touches you touches the apple of His eye. For surely I will shake My hand against them, and they shall become spoil for their servants. Then you will know that the Lord of hosts has sent Me. (Zechariah 2:8~9)
How are you? I’m well.
Are you a prepper?
As I still long for farming in the future, I enjoy watching some videos on farming, before going to bed, though not daily. Then, I happened to find out there are many so-called preppers. Some seem to be Christians and they move to the country, to farm and be sufficient from homesteading. Others who don’t seem to be Christians still choose to live simply, live off-the-grid and enjoy nature and health. (Some are maybe from financial reasons, too.) Among Christian preppers, some seemed to start to live off-the-grid very long ago, and they showed how to wash their clothes, using the old tools. Like I wrote in the previous blog, The Spirit of Fear, I used to believe mid or post-Trib rapture, and I thought living off-the-grid someday in the future might be necessary. Yet, on the other hand, I thought to myself, “What if those preppers found out they didn’t really have to live off-the-grid for so many years, by being raptured or simply dying anytime soon before the Tribulation?”
These days, I do think being sensitive to the Holy Spirit is absolutely important. I would like to share one of my episodes last year. A Christian friend of mine encouraged me to hoard some foods, after she heard a prophecy. And I appreciated her sharing it, as she cares for me. I also encouraged another friend of mine to pray over it and hoard the foods, if she is led to do so. Thinking back of that time, I think I actually hoarded the foods out of fear, not from the Holy Spirit’s guidance. So, I hoarded so many bags of rice in the closet. I planned to share them with the needy so that the number of bags I stored was way higher than the yearly consumption of my mom and me. Maybe 6~9 months after I started to store the rice, I found out black little bugs in one rice bag. I was afraid that the rest of the rice bags would have the bugs, too. So, I shared my story with a self-funding missionary for North Korea and asked her whether she would mind taking the rice from me. I didn’t really want to share the rice with the bugs at all, but my good intention didn’t come out perfect, due to the bugs. As the missionary knew my heart and she also had about 8 family members including her daughter and grandchildren from Canada at that time, she said their rice consumption was unbelievable. Thankfully, her family said that the bugs are a great source of protein! Yet, I regretted in a sense that I could have rather shipped the fresh rice bags to her every month than hoarded them for months in my closet for long. Since then, I stopped hoarding rice in my place, but started to send a fresh rice bag to a school in Seoul for North-Korean refugees. I acknowledge that I was not successful in listening to the Holy Spirit correctly, yet He made all things work together for good at the end of the day. (Like in my previous blog, Praying the Scriptures, He used the rice bags in the closet in teaching me on the Scripture I asked Him. And He still satisfied the need of the missionary’s family.) Yet, I think it’s important to be in His perfect will and in His perfect timing. For some people in some countries, the prophecy would have been true. But at least for me, I didn’t have to hoard the foods at that time. Or the prophecy might not be for the year 2020, but this year or next year.
So, looking back at my mistake and thinking of the preppers and some end-time prophecies, I think that each one of us should listen to the Holy Spirit. If I heard Him tell me to prepare for living off-the-grid, I should do that. But, if it’s simply out of fear or out of random prophecy here and there, I think there could be some waste of time, efforts and so on. I believe some prophets really saw the dooms to come, but I think that even those true visions and dreams might show the times to come after the Rapture. Apostle John saw the dooms to come and recorded them in the book of Revelation, but they didn’t happen in his time. Yet, the Lord had a purpose to show things to him and let him write them down. Likewise, even when the true prophets or seers heard or saw what would come, I think it would not necessarily happen to me in my lifetime on earth. Some prophecies would happen to the undecisive or the unbelievers who remain on the earth, after the Rapture. As there would be still those who come out of the Tribulation, there would be some people who choose to believe in Christ during the Great Tribulation, in addition to all the Jews who would be saved at the end. So, the purpose of those visions or dreams could be for those who would be still on earth and later read the articles or watch the videos or whatsoever. I do not know which prophecies would really come to pass during my time, but I believe that the Holy Spirit would let me know in person, if I should prepare for something.
Thinking back all the thoughts in my mind related to the end time prophecies here and there and many views on the rapture, I began to realize that I was under the spirit of fear, though I wanted to fulfill my destiny, helping people believe the Lord, and supporting them. Now, I realize that my focus should be whether I’m really ready and prepared to see the Lord even tonight! If I hold any grudges against someone, I must reconcile with him or her and forgive or ask forgiveness. And there should be no ulterior motive between Jesus and me, as the relationship between Bridegroom and Bride. Preparing spiritually is way more important than preparing in finance, and other material and physical stuffs. I realize that the focus on the Great Tribulation out of the fear distracted me from focusing on Jesus and living holy right at this moment. And I’m grateful to the Lord, as He led me into the right path.
Speaking of this, I was simply reminded of the dream I had on September 3rd this year. I dwelled on the dream for a while, trying to interpret it. In the dream, I saw a pretty lady looking like Marilyn Monroe, though she was not. And she wore kind of a bling-bling long black dress. And I think she had kind of a mantle which was orange color. While she was walking, her dress on the shoulder part almost dropped as if the seam came apart. So, I was surprised. But she was able to hold the upper part of her dress on her shoulder, so it was ok. She held an umbrella in her hand toward the sky and sang the song, “Singing in the rain.”
When I woke up, I wondered what the dream meant. The song “Singing in the rain” was so clear in my memory. And I even googled the lyric of the song, to try to understand what the Lord wants to say to me:
I'm singin' in the rain
Just singin' in the rain
What a glorious feeling
I'm happy again.
I'm laughing at clouds.
So dark up above,
The sun's in my heart
And I'm ready for love.
Let the stormy clouds chase.
Everyone from the place
Come on with the rain
I've a smile on my face
I walk down the lane
With a happy refrain
Singing in the rain
Dancing in the rain
La ri la la ri la,
I'm happy again
I'm singin' and dancing in the rain
I'm dancing and singin' in the rain
I had an impression that the rain would be some kind of trouble, but we, His children will still sing and dance in the rain. Then, the orange color of her mantle remained so vivid to my memory. I seldom saw orange color in my dreams. When I looked up James Goll’s book, I was surprised to read:
“ORANGE - Danger, great jeopardy, harm; a common color combination is orange and black, which usually signifies great evil or danger; bright or fire orange can be power, force, energy.”
So, I guessed the lady’s black dress together with the orange mantle might signify great evil or danger to come. The umbrella she held meant a lot, related to the episode I shared in my previous blog, God Is Our Refuge and Strength. So, I interpret the song gives us assurance even when we have upheaval or even the Great Tribulation.
I pray that you and I get ready and prepared to meet our Lord, our Bridegroom at any moment, even tonight, and we live holy and walk in His love, and we become true preppers, in Jesus’ name. I do believe there would be more shakings to come, but we don’t fear, but have peace and move in His perfect timing, listening to His voice. He abides in us and we abide in Him.
Have a bliss!
My child, never drift off course from these two goals for your life:
