How are you? Hope you had or are having a good day, today?
Today, I would like to start by sharing March Newsletter from Pastor John Fenn in The Church Without Walls International. He talked about people’s asking him bank crisis, and he shared some of what the Lord shared with him. It echoed what the Father gave me in my heart.
I did not want to write what we should prepare, as it would be different for each individual, and each and every one of us should ask the Lord what we should do. And I do not want to be fearmongering like many in the world and even many in Christian circle. Just like Pastor John shared Peace from the Lord, I believe the key is Peace from our Lord. In the past years, I used to encourage my family and friends to prepare for economic disasters to come. Yet the Lord did not give me a heart to write about them. And I also learned that it might simply trigger unnecessary fear rather than give peace. Now, the economic disaster seems to start to surface, and I think I would rather write what our hearts should be, not what we should prepare. I believe each and every one of us is in different situation. So, we shouldn’t try to know and do what others would do, but ask the Lord about preparation. He is a personal God, and He knows what you need and He will guide you when you ask Him. I wrote in a blog some time ago that I stored up some rice, listening to prophecy and my friend’s suggestion. But the rice started to have bugs inside, and I gave them away to a missionary’s family before they had more bugs. As I intended to share what I stored, I did not regret it at all. But I learned the timing and the method were not right. Much later, in last November, I moved to my new place. Whenever I thought to myself, “Should I store up some foods or some necessities?” He said, “Don’t store them up, as you will be moving to a new location. Rather, you buy them to be delivered to other children of Mine, if you want to store any.” (Speaking of a personal God Who knows our need, I would like to share my niece’ story. One day when she went to office supplies store to buy a notebook, she heard the Father say, “Buy more.” But, she didn’t like the idea of storing up stuffs, especially when her room didn’t have much space. So, she didn’t buy more. Later she got to know that model of notebook, her favorite was discontinued. He knew the producer would not make that specific notebook any more. So, He told her to buy more, as He also knew she likes that specific notebook. The reason for His telling her to stock up was different. Of course, we all have our free will for choice, but we get the consequences accordingly. I know this notebook stuff is not a matter of sin, but we may have some kind of regrets from our choice, if disobedient. Second best is not the very best.)
In this February, the Father said to me, “The economic confusion is at hand! Just do what I tell you to do. Have no fear. Be light!” Then, about 10 days later, He said that again, and He added, “The economic confusion is coming. Do not fear, when you hear the news. As I’m with you, be in peace.”
Yet, when I watched the news on bank run in the USA and Europe, I thought to myself, “Should I withdraw some of my money from my bank account?” And I sought the Lord for His guidance. And He told me to give offerings rather than withdraw some of it. And He said, “Did I ever fail you, when you gave Me back hilariously?” He used the word, hilariously, as I learned the word “cheerfully” in English bible is “hilariously” in Greek. Again, He is a personal God so that He used that word. And He also made me realize that I had fear so that I wanted to withdraw money. In His grace, I was able to give offerings with a cheerful heart. He answered my prayer that I would do what He tells me to do willingly, cheerfully, pleasantly, not grudgingly.” Friend, if you ask Him what you should do, He may not tell you to pile up 5 years of canned foods, if you should move to another location like me or if your priority is not piling up supplies.
One day, I came to find a David Wilkerson’s sermon, A Craving for the Presence of the Lord. When I listened to it, to my amazement, I heard him talk about his book related to economic disaster that I debated buying at that time. Yet more importantly, he talked about what our hearts should be. From the sermon title, I didn’t expect him to talk about it, but it really gave me much comfort, especially before difficult times come. I really wanted to share with you both his sermon and Pastor John’s monthly newsletter, as my heart desire is not to provoke fear, but to give peace and encourage us to seek fellowship with our Father more than before. This is not to tickle your ears, but to prepare our hearts and have His supernatural comfort and peace and discern the times and seasons. Our Lord is coming. He is coming again to reign on earth, but before that, He will catch away His pure bride. So, we wait eagerly for Him, not fearing, but doing the Father’s business, feeding the poor and sharing the gospel.
One morning, I read Proverbs 23 and the verse 4~5 came to me.
Do not overwork to be rich;
Because of your own understanding, cease!
Will you set your eyes on that which is not?
For riches certainly make themselves wings;
They fly away like an eagle toward heaven.
We should be diligent and work with integrity. Our Father loves sincere, faithful and diligent workers. Yet, the Scripture says, “do not overwork to be rich from our own understanding.” Overwork for greed is not His will. Neither is doing something from our own understanding. We are merely a human. We do not know when He would take our lives away here on earth. I think it’s first and foremost important to be in the secret closet and ask Him and walk with Him, as He designed us to do. As we commune with Him, and spend more time in His Presence, we will exude the fragrance of Christ and carry His Peace. People would ask us where our peace come from. Then, we reply to them with meekness and fear of the Lord. Friend, it’s my prayer that He gives us wisdom and discretion to know times and seasons and give us peace, joy and hope for our Bridegroom. The marriage supper of the Lamb is near and we do the Father’s business daily till then.
Have a bliss!
But whoever listens to me will dwell safely,
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? 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.
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:
How are you? Hope you had or are having a good day, today?
In mid of June this year, I had an incident that made my heart sink. Since my mom went to the emergency room and was hospitalized twice in May, I found her dementia got worse. One day, at around 8pm, she was taking a nap and woke up from the sleep, to go to the bathroom. Well, I thought she would go to the bathroom, as she used to do, awaking from her sleep. But I only got to realize she went out of our place! I think I realized it perhaps 10 minutes after she went out. I was mopping the floor of our room and I started to wonder why she didn’t come out of the restroom. Finally, I found out the light switches of the restroom were all off and the room was empty and dark. Only then did I realize a pair of slippers in front of the main door were gone. I felt my heart pounding and I tried to calm down and grabbed my door key, before going out to search for her. When I got out of our place, I bumped into a young lady and she said to me, “Are you looking for an old lady? She went down to the lobby floor.” I thought she read my facial expression and knew I was desperately looking for someone. When I went down to the lobby, I looked around, but couldn’t find her. I went to the security guard who knew my mom and asked him to check the security camera, saying I lost her. And I called the police to report her missing. While I was on the phone, the security guard and I saw the video from the security camera that took my mom and the young lady in our floor being in the elevator. After I finished reporting to the police, they said they would send a policeman to our accommodation soon. While I was at a loss, the security guard said to me from the main gate, “Come here! Your mother is here!” I ran and went out, following where he was going. My mom was in the crowds at the bus stop in front of the main gate of our accommodation at dusk, surrounded by two tall men. I couldn’t describe how I felt at that moment. I was simply thankful, yet my heart was still pounding. The two men said they are policemen (seemingly in private attires) and they held her, as they would think she has dementia. They said she was trying to take a bus, saying she would go to our hometown. I said thanks to them and I brought my mom back to our place and called the police to let them know I had found her. Only after I came back home with her, I realized someone put a surgical mask on her face. In Seoul, we still need to wear masks for the pandemic, but mom didn’t have any, as she simply got out of her sleep. I couldn’t thank God enough, as she was still in the good hands of the two policemen and she was given the mask, even when she left home in dementia. And she didn’t fall at all, even with the slippers. She had to always hold my hands and needed my support when she walked in her loafers. Even on the flat floor, she tended to stumble. Though I couldn’t still calm down from the shock, I felt so thankful for His protection. Then, the two men who claimed to be the policemen kept lingering in my mind. I said to myself, “Could they be His Angels?” It dawned on me that both of them didn’t wear masks. And they were very tall and big, compared with the policemen I usually saw. I know we as His children are always surrounded by our guardian angels. They could have been mom’s guardian angels and they held her till I found her, and they protected her from stumbling.
In 2020, I heard many prophecies that God would release many angels who would partner with His children. They are not our day-to-day guardian angels, but the angels to work with us for the missions especially in the last days. One day in December, I listened to Pastor Mark Johnson’s teaching on seeing Jesus and His Angels. I was encouraged by his teaching that we should ask Jesus, “Jesus, what are You saying? Or what are You doing?” instead of asking ourselves, “What Would Jesus Do?” He is with us 24 hours and we begin to ask Him directly what He is saying and what He is doing. And he also encouraged us to ask Him to show where the Angels are. After listening to his teaching, one day when I took a walk, I said to the Lord, “Lord, where is the Angel? Please show me where he is.” Interestingly, after the prayer, I found one homeless man appear on the street. I never saw any homeless people on that street for the past few years. Then, I thought to myself that if he is His Angel, I must not pass by. I checked my wallet. I didn’t have much cash, as I didn’t have any plan to shop during my walk. I collected all the small notes of cash I had from my wallet and held them in my right hand. And I inched closer to him and thought to myself, “What if he is not homeless? Then, he would be offended, if I give this money to him.” So, I looked at him closely and was quite sure he is homeless. Still believing he is His angel, I approached to him, and nodded at him and gave him all the cash I had. Then, I simply turned around and walked fast. I just hoped that I entertained the Angel, aware, instead of unaware, and I pleased the Lord. Then, the next day, I took a walk along the same street as the previous day. And I said to the Lord, “Lord, please show me Your angel.” Then, I looked around and I saw the clouds in the sky. The two clouds with a building in the middle of them looked just like the wings of His angels. I smiled. I believe it was His sense of humor and He indeed showed me the angel’s wings through the clouds.
But for the last few months, I didn’t really think of the angels and I didn’t have many dreams that I think were from the Lord. My sleep was simply light and broken, since my mom had hospitalization and some other surprising night events. As she was wide awake most of the nights, my sleep life was not really good, and the dreams were rare. When I had some dreams, they were like nightmares. And I didn’t really long for the Lord’s visitation as much as I did in the past. Chronic fatigue simply made me want to survive rather than thrive in this season. Yet, the Lord is gracious. Recently, I got to listen to Pastor Michael Van Vlymen’s Seer School series in his online channel. In one of his teachings, he encouraged not to have an attitude such as “Oh, I just need Jesus, not angels.” And he encouraged us to earnestly seek the spiritual gifts. And in the very next day, when I read the Bible, the Scripture from Luke 22:43 was highlighted to me, “Jesus called for an angel of glory to strengthen him, and the angel appeared. (The Passion Translation)” It was the scene of the garden of Gethsemane before He was betrayed by Judas. It came into my mind that if Jesus called for an angel of glory to strengthen him, how much more we would need His angels.
While the thoughts on the angels and seeing in the spirit realm kept lingering in my mind, I was surprised to receive an email from Lana Vawser’s ministry on the very next day. As usual, her blog was just timely as the Lord’s confirmation. Her blog was way short, compared with her usual blogs, but I became certain that she had to simply share the short message from the Lord on time and the title of the message was “Major Increase of Angelic Assistance”.
Friend, I believe He orchestrated everything. And I felt that I must write on this to share His plan and to encourage you to expect His angels to be released to partner with you for His Kingdom. I like to share what Pastor Michael Van Vlymen recently shared in a conference in the USA. He said when he saw a few angels in the spirit realm, one of the angels said to him, “We want to go with you.” Then, he was caught up back to his prayer room and the Lord appeared and said to him, “The provision of Heaven is available.” Pastor Michael said that the angel said, “We want to go with you.”, not “We are going with you.” And he continued, “If you are not going to do the Kingdom things, there is no need for you to have the angelic army to go with you. You’re going to be equipped to do the tasks at hand, if you say yes to Him. And the provision will come.” Friend, do you like to say yes to Him and expect His provision for the Kingdom works?
Friend, I’m sharing the Lana’s short words below. I pray it may speak to you and we expect to have significant angelic encounters in the days to come, in Jesus’ name.
Have a bliss!
“Are they not all ministering spirits sent out to serve for the sake of those who are to inherit salvation?” (Hebrews 1:14 ESV)
Over the last few weeks I have had a number of encounters in vision and dreams where the Lord has showed me a MAJOR increase of the angelic being released onto the earth and a major increase in angelic activity. I have seen so many angels being sent from the Lord into the nations and to assist His people.
The presence and visitation of the angelic is significantly increasing. The Lord continued to speak the words “I am releasing greater angelic assistance”.
Be encouraged and expectant right now and as we move further into this new era to see, encounter and experience a significant increase in angelic assistance. These angelic encounters will not only bring supernatural provision and assist God’s people, but open up greater understanding of the supernatural realm.
Many are about to have significant angelic encounters that are landing in the lives of many believers on assignment of the Lord, that will shift and commission many into new assignments by the word of the Lord.
Then the high priest rose up, and all those who were with him (which is the sect of the Sadducees), and they were filled with indignation, and laid their hands on the apostles and put them in the common prison. But at night an angel of the Lord opened the prison doors and brought them out, and said, “Go, stand in the temple and speak to the people all the words of this life.” (Acts 5:17~20)
