06/29/20 – Firstfruits


This is a photo taken of my Black-eyed Susans. They are full of buds and will come into bloom shortly but meanwhile this one small somewhat hidden flower, has bloomed early. I say early because this flower is generally one that blooms in the fall (the link explains it) My husband tells me this single flower has been there for a week but I did not see it. This is a perfect representation of what we are in Christ…hidden in Him but the firstfruits of many that will bloom. The whole body is ready to sing…that’s how I see flowers that are pointed up…they are signing to their Creator.

Yesterday I returned to church. It was an interesting service and I’m sure it helped our preacher that the people were there in the pews. Almost no one wore a mask because the church had already been meeting for a few weeks and seating is set up for social distancing. We are to use common sense and take precautions. Because of this, there is no hugging when meeting friends, no real chatter between people face to face, and frankly no fellowship. This was missing. It was nice to see other people from the church but that was about it. We did sing together which was good

There are no handouts (government is poopooing anything that may be handled by more than one person). It’s amazing to me how the enemy has snuck in and put a barrier between people serving their God. The church speaks of “safety first”…but God should be first and foremost. Meanwhile His Firstfruits are just about to bloom and take off! Are you ready?!?!

06/13/20 - "Resolute"


This morning the Holy Spirit dropped the word "resolute" into my spirit.


Definition of resolute

1: marked by firm determination : RESOLVED a resolute character

2: BOLD, STEADY - a resolute gaze

Create for me a pure heart, O God! Renew a resolute spirit within me! Psalm 51:10


Then when he arrived and witnessed the grace of God, he rejoiced and began to encourage them all with resolute heart to remain true to the Lord; Acts 11:23


My first thought was the Resolute Desk that is in the White House.


https://www.thoughtco.com/the-resolute-desk-4121120


Then I got to thinking that this word really means the same thing that I saw in Master and Commander movie recently...an old sailor with the words "hold fast" (see picture) tattooed on his fingers. I am reading the Master and Commander series of books and have finally gotten to book 10 which is titled The Far Side of the World (the movie is a compilation of books although the same title as 10).  This man is holding his hands like this in a scene where the doctor is placing a spoon on his skull as his was injured. There was no anethesia in the early 1800s so I can relate to why this man has this tattoo!  Anyway...he needed to remain still...and resolute during this procedure.  As I looked for a remaining Word to post for Sunday, I went to this one (first and only) and found...you guessed it..."hold fast" within the Word!  How perfect!

As we are counting down to our final days in these bodies, we have been told that we will "see" things we wish we didn't have to.  I hope you are memorizing Psalm 91 because it is especially for the remnant.  We will be resolute in the days to come, holding fast ONLY to Jesus our Lord and Savior!

UPDATE 06/15/20 - This morning I decided to read a Fox News headline as I am looking for 2nd wave info.  The Chinese actually used the word "resolute"!!


"The risk of the epidemic spreading is very high, so we should take resolute and decisive measures..."

***** UPDATE *****


This was sent to me by my friend Doug Macallum


How I continue to understand what the Lord is saying regarding the word Resolute, given to you, has a double meaning. It does involve the President and the U.S.

The Satanic powers, working through their human counterparts, are RESOLUTE, RESOLVED, decided upon, and determined to dissolve, disunite, unyoke, make void, and dismantle the structure of our Government and our way of life. When Jesus spoke, in Mt 24, about nations being against nations, the Greek word for “nations” is, ETHNOS, i.e. RACE. These riots, like 911, will bring more infringement on our Civil Liberties. “Morally lax” also defines RESOLUTE. The morality of America is almost extinct. "Draining the swamp” would only be a drop in the bucket, compared to the sea of a cesspool we are being flooded with. I cannot imagine what the World will be like after the Rapture?!  

2Thess 2And now you know what is restraining him [from being revealed at this time]; it is so that he may be manifested (revealed) in his own [appointed] time.

For the mystery of lawlessness (that hidden principle of rebellion against constituted authority) is already at work in the world, [but it is] restrained only until [c]he who restrains is taken out of the way.

And then the lawless one (the antichrist) will be revealed and the Lord Jesus will slay him with the breath of His mouth and bring him to an end by His appearing at His coming.

The coming [of the lawless one, the antichrist] is through the activity and working of Satan and will be attended by great power and with all sorts of [pretended] miracles and signs and delusive marvels—[all of them] lying wonders—

10 And by unlimited seduction to evil and with all wicked deception for those who are perishing (going to perdition) because they did not welcome the Truth but refused to love it that they might be saved.

11 Therefore God sends upon them a misleading influence, a working of error and a strong delusion to make them believe what is false,

12 In order that all may be judged and condemned who did not believe in [who refused to adhere to, trust in, and rely on] the Truth, but [instead] took pleasure in unrighteousness.

I believe, what David Wilkerson, years ago,  called “The Merciful Delay”, is ending. YHVH’s Mercies endure forever and He Will Save all who surrender their lives to Him. BUT, the American way of life is changing and dissolving before our very eyes. Americans have been slowly conditioned, just as the frog in the heating pot of water, to accept the erosion of our freedoms. I believe what’s fast tracking, for this country, will be more like deer staring into the headlights of  a runaway train!

Here are some facts and thoughts regarding The Resolute Desk, which I knew absolutely nothing about until you brought it to my attention, Thank you. You may or may not be familiar with the following?

The desk design is called a Partner Desk. Curious? It was designed for two people, partners, facing each other, to “work together”. was made from timbers of the HMS Resolute, after it was “dismantled” by the Brit’s. This ship failed to complete its mission in finding remains or survivors of the Franklin Expedition who were looking for the NW Passage in the Arctic. The Resolute also became ice bound and was abandoned, later recovered by an American whaler. President Hayes spent $40,000 dollars to have her refitted and gifted back to Queen Victoria. Pretty expensive desk! This era of Hayes and Victoria was also during huge industrial growth and expansion in both countries. Cecil Rhodes, an Englishman, was king of the gold and diamond mining in S. Africa at this time. He also started The Round Table. This group believed that the English speaking, white people should rule the World. Rhodes used his huge fortune to facilitate his vision. This idea was brought to the U.S. and to the Rockefellers, Morgan’s, etc. The Council on Foreign Relations and Tri Lateral Commission are by products of The Round Table. The Rothchild’s were also very cozy with the families of Victoria and Albert( him personally). These organizations are One Worlders to the core! I believe that’s why the Brit’s sent the U.S. a Partner style desk. Order out of Chaos, Partner Desk out of a dismantled RESOLUTE, Phoenix rising out of the ashes. “Resolute, Resolve” carry these double meanings. I believe this Satanic concept is a counterfeit to God’s Plan, 1Cor 1:18-31; Jn 12:20-26; Php 3:8; Jn 17:11,21-23; Rev 12:5; 19:15.

Rev 2 25 Only hold fast to what you have until I come.

26 And he who overcomes (is victorious) and who obeys My commands to the [very] end [doing the works that please Me], I will give him authority and power over the nations;

27 And he shall rule them with a sceptre (rod) of iron, as when earthen pots are broken in pieces, and [his power over them shall be] like that which I Myself have received from My Father;

28 And I will give him the Morning Star.

29 He who is able to hear, let him listen to and heed what the [Holy] Spirit says to the assemblies (churches).

I just read some secular articles ( I will forward in another email if you’re interested? ) regarding “possible” future scenarios in the U.S. These articles smack of what I’m sensing coming to our country, using the pandemic to further the dismantling of our liberties and the achieving of their ultimate  goal. The Lord has not given me specifics as to timing, but has repeatedly told me what we are experiencing currently will only ramp up and get progressively worse. This is OF COURSE is from the natural/carnal point of view. We, God’s People, will Manifest The Glory of The LORD in Great and Mighty Ways to Destroy the works of darkness and bring in His Great Harvest paving The Way to The Rapture and The Marriage Supper of The Lamb!! Rev 19:6-9-21.

06/08/20 - Prayer Vigil


One of the members at our church is having a bone marrow transplant today.  My daughter would have been a good candidate had she not gotten sicker. (We had gone through all the initial procedures).  I have never spoken to this man but I have seen him and am friends with his mother-in-law.  The church has known for some time now that he would have a BM transplant this week (held up by Covid), but for some reason last week I felt the urge to ask if there was a prayer vigil occurring for him.

I have never been part of a prayer vigil, I've never prayed for very long at a time.  I know I am not a prayer warrior per se (although I do go to the Courts of Heaven and HAVE seen supernatural results) but rather I speak to the Lord at all hours of the day and night.  Psalm 55:17  But I wanted to be part of praying for this man so I set out last week to ask about a prayer vigil.  Mind you, there is no set night for "prayer meeting" at our church so I imagine a prayer vigil was an unusual request.  I texted a friend and she said to ask the preacher about it.  So I did and he thought it was a great idea.  He wanted me to write up the request and he would set up the timing and emails.  So I did.  15 minutes increments were set up for several hours and I said I would sign up for 3 increments that had not been spoken for.  The preacher signed me up for 3 in a row!  45 minutes!  I've never prayed that long! lol  Like I said, I pray and talk with God all the time but not an ongoing conversation (although I long to do that!). When my time began today I started in and asked for help right away and just went for it.  I know what I would have prayed for my daughter, so I did the same for this man and his family and medical workers etc.  And when I ran out of things to say and Bible verses to read out loud, I just prayed in the spirit.  How perfect a language that is when one does not know how to pray! 


I wanted to share this with you just because I felt led to.  As I type this, I do not know how the procedure went, but one thing I know for sure...it's in God's hands!

PS:  After my husband came home from work and had been home a while, he said, "Oh I forgot to tell you, Today I was praying for John and I had a question for you."  I did everything in power to keep my mouth from dropping open!  Those words have never come out of my husband's mouth!!  Yes he prays but he has never said anything like this before!  Thank you Jesus!  The question was personal and not the point..the point I'm sharing with you is that wow!  Again I cannot emphasize enough how important and crucial it is to go to the Courts of Heaven for your loved ones!  Especially now as you seek to have their attention with what is coming.  Pray about this and follow through, for our time is short!

05/29/20 - Pentecost


Folks, this whole Pentecost thing was making me crazy so in the night, I believe the Lord spoke to me what I needed to do. Thursday morning (today) I prayed about it and here is my thought in a nutshell. God is going to BEGIN something new on Pentecost. It may not be razzle dazzle shock and awe energy running right through us..or it may be. . I do not know.

What I DO know is that in my flesh, I tend to view things as black and white and there is no room for compromise. What God says is absolute Truth in my book. But there are times when I do not read slowly, and then I get into trouble. This happened when I 1) believed we would see the outpouring at Pentecost and then 2) this was reversed when I read things into Barb and Doug’s Messages, that simply were not there. My bad on both accounts. What I was led to do was to relisten to this video and take notes.


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rh0z7uF3IKE&t=2s


My notes today included that the “literal Pentecost” that is spoken of is true! But the timing may not be what we think, it can be a day, a cycle or season. However, once this outpouring occurs it will indeed be gifts from a Bridegroom to His Bride, above and beyond Acts 2. None of the people in the video above claimed this full outpouring would be this May 31/June 1. But they did strongly suggest that something would start. I believe that. Same with Jo Ellen’s Messages below. God even uses the word “begin” but in my haste, I skipped over that.

https://www.hiskingdomprophecy.com/three-sounds-three-decrees-for-pentecost-and-beyond/


Lastly, I think these Messages below are meant for people just like me that run ahead. We should not be setting dates for any of God’s appointments because only He knows them. At times He may share them but for this instance, I believe I jumped the gun. I’m sorry if I caused any of you grief. We are to be cautious and discerning but most importantly go to the Lord first.

05/15/20 - Signs at the Door


I'm very literal.  This really IS about signs at the door.  I went out again today and had to wear a mask again.  Since I went to more than one place, I discovered something.  Every business or medical place or whatever, has SIGNS on the doors!  If you read every restriction mentioned, you would be there 10 minutes and late for any appt you might have.  At the local market store today there were at least 4 signs!  I didn't even see one of them until I was leaving.  Sheesh!  It immediately reminded me of this song from 1970...

05/07/20 - Unmasking


For the first time today, my husband and I were both "forced" to wear a mask if we wanted to accomplish what we set out to do.  For me, it was occupational therapy.  I've not mentioned this but I've been having a lot of shoulder pain, to the point of needing help.  This help started in February but of course, was suspended in March.  They have started up again (and if you pass the temp test you can go in) and I now have to wear a mask and I discovered something.  Every time I breath, I fog up my glasses!  Who doesn't love that? I hate it.

My husband does not have to wear a mask at work, but he does need one (as of today) to go into a hardware store he likes.  As he was walking into a store, a security guy walked towards him, and my husband whipped out his trusty mask and put it on.  When he got home he proceeded to tell me, "I hate it!"  It's clear we were meant to be together.

"His and Hers"

One more thing I forgot to mention...my therapist said, "I don't know why anyone would not want the vaccine when it comes out!"  This is where "staying hidden" comes into play.  On the one hand, I could have told her that Bill Gates has no business making vaccines, that some vaccines have fetus tissue in it, and most vaccines for children have a sterilizing compound so they cannot "go forth and multiply".  But she would have considered me a nut, a fanatic, a conspiracy theorist.  I told my husband this and he said, "She'd say, "Ohhh, you're one of THEM!"   And I replied, "I AM one of them!"  :-)  But I didn't say any of that to her.  I simply said I don't trust Gates.  Gotta plant the seed.

04/26/20 - No website update


For three days Ap 28-30, I will not be updating, reading or responding to:


- This website

- Emails

- Facebook

- All text apps

- Twitter


Otherwise I will update and respond as of Friday May 1


EXCEPTION:  If Sue or Lisa has something that God wants posted

04/19/20 - Revival vs Chaos


A while back I asked God why some Messages seem to indicate good news and prosperity coming, and some point to chaos and calamity. Since He is not the God of confusion and we are to go to Him with everything, I knew He would have the best answer. Here is what I received:

Even in the times of Jesus, the disciples thought He was the One who would be King. Yet He died. How could both things correlate? Same thing happens with labor while having a child. Intense pain, yet you know joy is coming. Same thing with my daughter’s death. We celebrate her promotion and happiness in Heaven but mourn and grieve over our loss.


Here are a few things I’ve heard God say lately:


"It may seem for some time in the future that things are getting better"...and in the same Message…”The water has not yet broken, and your earth will be experiencing a much longer labor than many have suggested.” We see that we’ll have some more good times…and yet there are birth pains here.


A friend of mine pointed to my Word from last November where God told me that “next year will be a rough one”. We also know that the devil has less than a decade…he has been given the Tribulation period of 7 years. Yet he has been given permission to start horrendous things even now. But remember, these are just birth pains. I have heard people that I KNOW hear and visit with the Lord, mention more years to come. I would encourage you to read their Messages in full and not in part. Generally you are not able to exactly pinpoint timing in their Messages. Even if they give a time, we still do not know when the outpouring of peace will come upon us (I think it’s this year), or the full transformation. It’s possible that we will be working as the remnant under the direct instruction of God, this year. We could be here for a while but in my opinion, if I am here and healed and doing God’s work, then I am doing what I can to promote Jesus. Isn’t that what we want? 


Remember what you’ve learned in the past. We will travel at night while our family is asleep (Warrior Princess). We will be translated to areas and work in pairs and groups (Lisa’s Visions). The AC cannot come into power until the Bride is gone, he simply can’t. Do not get so caught up in one person or one Word that you neglect all you’ve been shown by the Lord. Go back to the older Messages that you KNOW are true. Reread them and gain encouragement. This virus will come to nothing with the Bride. Neither will anything else. We will not be harmed! Do you believe that? If not, go to the Lord and ask for His great peace and He will give it. Meanwhile, be excited for the time you are in and do not fear. If something makes you fearful, just stop listening or reading. Easy peasy. 


We will not be subject to the mark of the beast. We won’t have to make a choice because we are the remnant. If you are coming to this website, then you would know to trust in God and He will take care of you. He has you in the palm of His hand. No worries! No fear! If you are fearing then cast it out in Jesus name! Speak truth over yourself and your family. Frame your world with the Words of Jesus. You have been taught and trained for years now…it’s time to act on it! 

03/20/20 - USA Residents that Watch


I wanted to get these to videos to you because they are for right now.  One is from Celeste who used to work with FEMA and still gets their information.  The other is from Mike from Around the Word who is saying that by this Saturday March 21, President Trump will announce some pretty harsh restrictions.  I think this is coming regardless if it is by tomorrow or not but I feel these warnings are critical.  These people are not alarmists, rather they work ( or did work) in areas where they are privy to information that we as the general public are not.  Since they are Christians and trust the Lord, they make known to us what is coming down the pike.

I will not be posting any more Celeste videos so please subscribe to her if you wish to know what's going on.

Mike mentions on his own website that by Sat March 21, Trump will announce we are in more of a lockdown country wide.  I feel Trump does not want to do this but is being pressured.  Either way, we need to purchase what we need NOW. Ask the Lord what do to!

01/23/20 - Trump Timeline


I've been mulling over the timing of Trump and his Peace Plan announcement...possibly before the Israeli Elections.  I've come to this conclusion...just my opinion.


  • Trump will be acquitted before the Superbowl (Feb 2)
  • Trump will highlight his acquittal at the State of the Union address (Feb 4)
  • The Peace Plan will be announced before the Israel Elections (Mar 2)

Here's my logic -

Superbowl:

America likes her Superbowl..she does not want it "marred" by impeachment hearings and the government leaders want to watch/attend it, as well as Trump.  They don't want to have to THINK about what's going on.  I should say this is mostly about those who are FOR Trump and not against him.  Those against him want him out no matter how long it takes.  So anyway, Trump attends/watches the Superbowl and then has Monday to write his speech for the...

State of the Union:  He will be acquitted and will most likely gloat over it (you know how he is).  He has done many good things for the USA and since this is his last SOTU speech before the election, it'll bring in all the good stuff...and possibly include:

The Peace Plan announcement:  He may or may not discuss at the SOTU speech this but I believe it WILL happen before March 2.  

There are at least three reasons for this.

     1) Trump is tired of waiting on the Israeli elections

     2) MAJOR primaries in the USA begin Mar 3, those siding with Trump will use this announcement somehow

     3) Trump want to be able to start discussing the fact that he has released his announcement...for his own election.  He wants to "trump" everything else he has done throughout the years.  After all, he calls it the Deal of the Century and if he thinks he may not be reelected (we know via God that he will), then he will want his presidential legacy to be historic.


Just my thoughts and opinion.


UPDATE:  I wrote this around noon on 01/23/20 (Thursday).  Since then, an Israeli newspaper noted that Bibi and Gantz were coming to the White House next week, specifically for the peace deal release...and later on an article noted it would be Tuesday.  I HOPE YOU ARE WATCHING!  


And even now as I am updating this at 7:20 a.m. EST, I found another article stating that the final political part of the plan may be released before Tuesday!  Oy vey!

12/22/19 – Life



I wanted to share a quick dream but also what myself (and others who grieve) are going through right now. After the dream, you may wish to quit reading as I’m sure this will be depressing. I totally get that and understand it, especially this time of year. Besides, I won’t even know you have stopped reading.


Dream – A few nights ago I asked the Lord to show me my future. Many of my friends and those I read of dreams and visions, have been shown this magnificent future of the remnant of the Bride, the firstborn. My friends and others are glowing, helping others, healing them, etc. I was praying to know my role in the days to come. Well…God showed me my future, but it was unexpected. The only part I recall of my dream was walking in front of my husband and being skinny again. 😊 I was outside of my body in this dream so I could see what was going on. Hubby was walking toward me and I was walking across in front of him. All I could see was that I was wearing jeans and skinny like when I was a teenager. The end! Lol I feel that points to current times because after the Rapture, my husband will look much differently. So I feel this points to now…somehow. I’ll take it!

Ok on to this past year. It has been difficult to say the least. Yes this is our worst Christmas ever. We are not celebrating in any way at all. It’s not because we loved Christmas (although I used to celebrate the entire month of December), but because our daughter loved Christmas and she is not here this year. Also this was her birthday month. Last year around this time is when she started to become much sicker until her death in February. So no, we are not having a good month. On top of that, the weather is brutal and there is no escape outside to sun and flowers and warmth. Summer is my favorite time but at least the days are getting longer now. Woohoo! I’ll take any benefit I can get!


You may not know but Sue lost her husband this year, also after a lengthy illness. Yet look at the Word she received recently…we are to SWIM in joy! We cannot do that on our own, this is the power of the Lord stepping into our lives. I pray for this joy each day. A week or so may go by where I don’t cry, but then like this weekend, I am cleaning out our spare bedroom which used to be our daughter’s. I need to see a change of scenery in there so we have gotten rid of the spare bed and purchased a recliner yesterday. The room gets the full sun in the winter so I’m going to use it as a reading room. But cleaning out the closet has been painful. I have now gotten to the point where I am getting rid of things our daughter made when she was a child. Very personal things, so it’s been difficult. The grieving continues. Her loss in this world is heavy at all times as my husband and I feel our “entire” family is now gone. We’ve not been invited to any holiday get togethers and to be honest that’s ok with us. I read in one hospice letter that the reason for families to ignore us at this time is that they don’t want to be reminded of what they might lose. Spouses…children…the pain is incredible. My husband and I have decided to celebrate Jesus’ birth again once we are united with our daughter. I recall Lisa’s vision of her family get together in Heaven and that’s what I see happening for us.


So how can you help those who are grieving? I’ve learned how but only by going through it. I’d like to pass along what would be helpful to me, knowing that you can do the same with those among your family or friends that have lost someone very close to them.


  • What are their hobbies? If you want to purchase something for them, let it be a book or something related to their interests. That helps their focus stay on something besides their loss.
  • If possible, spend time with them AND their hobby. I no longer shop or go to movies because my daughter was my buddy in these adventures. If you know someone that has ceased some of their activities based on their grief, slowly lead them back into it by suggesting you do something together. Let them take the lead in this. Make time for them.
  • When you are with them, do not go on about your own family. I do not wish to sound discouraging here but I don’t know how else to say it. Our best friends have 4 healthy children with spouses and grandchildren and they rarely have time to see us, and they talk about their family a lot. My husband and I understand this because that is what makes up their lives. We get this. But since our family is no longer here, it’s upsetting after a point, to hear about how happy others are. Your happiness does not spread to them, it only reminds them of their loss. But PLEASE do not keep out of touch from them because of it. Rather read 1 and 2 above and pray about how the Lord would have you step back into their lives and help them see that there IS joy in the Lord. If you are the Bride, you are to SHINE!
  • Cards and letters and emails can be helpful but kinda follow suggestion 3 above. Seek out how they are doing but don’t focus on their loss. Rather, pick something neutral or something you know they love that will help ease their mind. We have received Christmas cards this year and we quickly open them and if there is no personal note, we toss them in the trash. I’ve not sent cards out but that’s because I don’t really celebrate Christmas. But if I did, I doubt I would send cards this year. There is no merriness in this holiday for us.

I’ve been brutally honest with you in this pondering. But know this, I love the Lord and He is holding me in His hand. Each time I cry, I look to Him for relief because He is the Bringer of Joy. He is my Shepherd and watches over all of us. He is the most perfect Father and I cannot wait to meet Him. He too has lost a Child at one point and knows my grief. But truly I and my husband KNOW and BELIEVE that in the near future, ALL will be happy and rejoicing and reunited with loved ones. We are only dust right now…agreeing to be here and even go through all we are going through. You too have “volunteered” to come to earth at this time and have a purpose now and in the future. There is a path we are to follow and the more we turn our lives over to Jesus, the less we have to worry and mourn about ANYTHING. Sometimes easier said than done but you know what I am saying. In the months ahead, I hope to see a turning point in these end time Words and actions but if we are still here one year from now in these same bodies, then we continue to TRUST that God knows exactly what is going on and we are right where we are supposed to be. 


Shalom


12/10/19 – First Responders


I purchased a new phone yesterday. As the salesman was figuring the pricing, he inquired for a discount. Was I or my husband military? Was I a first responder? As soon as he asked this the Holy Spirit said, “My Bride will be first responders.


Wow! I had never thought of that before but it’s true. Whether we will be used for healings, for rescuing, for revealing the enemy…we will be first responders of the divine sort! How cool is that! Because right now I do best in accounting. 😊 I am very far from the Avenger type, the go getter, the brave Joan of Arc. I prefer to sit at a computer quietly, doing my job, generally with numbers. Granted I am retired but still, you know what I mean. Now please do not feel this in any way takes away from current first responders. You guys have saved my daughter’s life on occasions when we needed an ambulance or took her to the emergency room. You even helped me during my time of the flu when I could barely walk and called 911. 

Also I have had a few wrecks in my time and dialing 911 was always a comfort. There are many types of first responders right now, but one day…we shall be first on the scene and will help millions with whatever God wants us to do! We may be shining in all His glory, or we may be camouflaged from the enemy. It’s possible that we will heal and rescue, or protect a residence or group of people from the enemy. We simply don’t know…just that we will be first on the scene because of prayer and action from the Father. I can’t wait!

11/30/19 - Peace in the Middle East?


After reading the initial story below (11/25/19), and then this update from my friend Dee, I am thinking that I need to continue to read the posts from John Natale found here.  I say this because indeed Israel may at least have SOME sort of peace by the end of the day.  In the message from 10/31/19, John's last statement is:


" November is to remember! So never forget that which was done for you. A harvest month that reveals the table of peace!"


If you read this article, it seems that for a while anyway, Israel is breathing a sigh of relief.

The other item was found on 11/09/19's post. I'll let you look that one up and review it, again found here.  I'm not sure what it points to.  Could be Pelosi's impeachment proceedings which seem to be fizzling.  Could be Rep Ilhan Omar who is apparently a spy.  (She sure was loud for a while). It's still up in the air for me.  But I'll tell you what...when someone is telling us that God Himself is speaking and saying sure events will come about in certain months...then I am on high alert!  Either I put them in a category with the few others that I truly trust hear from God, or they go off my list.  I've seen others note things for certain months that do not come to pass.  This is a consistent thing on their part such as hurricanes that do not even touch the USA but were said to be horrendous events, wars during certain months that did not occur, other glaring things.  As Kevin Zadai says, we should not let false prophets off the hook.  In the old days, they were stoned!  So go to the Lord with everything you read and hear, for only He knows who His true servants are!


UPDATE: Saw this early this morning.  Peace not looking so near.

11/25/19 - Two for One


I decided to put this under Ponderings because frankly, I'm pondering both.


1)  Early this a.m. I heard, "Are you listening to Me?" (yes Lord)

Broken hearted.  Tragedy strikes soon, My love.  Cling to Me.  Shelter. (Is this meant for everyone or just me?) All.


After the video I posted yesterday, I am definitely watching!

2)  My friend Paul sent me this article.  Because I am watching to see if the prophecy from 10/31/19 comes to pass from John Natale, I am paying attention to see if "peace" of any sort does occur.  Thank you for watching with me!


"November is to remember! So never forget that which was done for you. A harvest month that reveals the table of peace! "

11/02/19 - "She wore blue....velcro"


Yes that's a take on the Bobby Vinton song Blue Velvet.  :-)   You see I visited my mom yesterday and brought her new shoes.  She has dementia and lives in a nursing home but still knows who I am.  My mom has always had interesting things to say and yesterday she said she liked her previous husband (married 30 years but died a while back).  However, she didn't think she would remarry (she's 84).  I smiled at her as she has said this before.  I guess I believe her.


During my visits we attend the "exercise" class.  Conveniently, everyone stays seated.  Even the two that came with their walker.  If you can walk in a nursing home, that's a bonus.  I looked around the circle of those ready to workout today, and all had on the same shoes as my mom...shoes with velcro.  Velcro is very easy to fold back as you can see, and even slippers come with velcro now!  It's a great invention!

These exercises are fun and if I have to raise my arms very much, my shoulders start hurting.  I think I need to do more exercises...my husband would tell me to lift weights at the same time.  I'll think about it.  As for my mom's exercise group, their favorite song and the one they all chime in on is "Rock my soul in the bosom of Abraham". All they have to do is move back and forth and they sure know how to rock!  Now the version I've linked above is MUCH slower than these lovely gray haired people sing it. Even those that keep their eyes closed sing this song.  I'll bet when they get to Heaven, they'll sing it even more lively and will throw away those velcro shoes so they can dance!

10/16/19 – The Winter of my Life


Last week I turned 58. Woohoo. I’ve discovered a few things that some of you already know about, and others hope to never learn. Arthritis, poor memory, reading/knitting hobbies (which translates to couch potato), and new discounts for the elderly. (grimace) Yep, I’m there. Hubby is older but only by 11 months. He IS in shape (works out a couple times a week), has a blue collar job, doesn’t read but has infinite memory statistics on sports, and will take any discount he can get. We are a perfect pair.

I’m titling this The Winter of my Life. And since I am officially in my “late” 50s, I have found a few new things to assist me with this season. I’ve decided that I need to MOVE a bit more often so I have found a new TV show to help. It’s called A New Way 2 Move and can be found here:


http://www.jltv.tv/shows.php?id=79


It has exercises for the “active senior “of which I qualify. And you know what? I can DO these exercises and I am NOT out of breath but I DO feel the pain and so I GAIN! I’m passing this along to you because as mentioned, some of you are like me. Retired but not really moving all that much. And you know about my 3-wheeled bicycle (see “The Fall” 09/22/19 below)…I’ve been riding it and even went on a special bike trail last week. I’ve always loved to ride my bike, even as a kid. That’s how we got around town in those days. “Let’s go ride bikes” was a favorite way to pass time. Sadly this hobby will slow down as winter kicks in. Winter began on Oct 12 in my house...that’s when the furnace kicked on. (sigh)


I’ve discovered another winter of sorts…life in the outback of Alaska. I just started watching this show called The Last Alaskans. I have a lot of respect for these people. There are 7 cabins in an Alaskan refuge area part of which is north of the Arctic Circle…the size of South Carolina! These people have to travel hundreds of miles just to get to town. The Ultimate Prepper! We could learn a thing or two from them. As I watched one man in particular, he told the story of how he crashed his plane (I watched it…cameras are everywhere), he walked away from the wreck and spent 4 days before being rescued. He gave all the credit to God. Part of his story is here but there ARE spoilers!


https://www.realityblurred.com/realitytv/2018/12/last-alaskans-bob-harte-death/


These people literally live in the winter season of their life, much of the year. They don’t complain, they LOVE it. And some give the glory to God for getting them through it. I don’t think I’ll be in this same body when I turned 60. I feel we’ll be transformed by then with no more worries about the cold (I'm putting the heating blanket on tonight).   And I won’t be complaining! Funny thing, when I turned 50, I was ecstatic! I didn’t know why…hadn’t been woken up yet. But now as I look back I think it was because I felt I had reached some type of rite of passage. I had crossed over to W.I.S.D.O.M. Maybe that’s why I made the ultimate decision to quit coloring my hair a month ago. I give up. God will have to beautify me as I no longer have a vain vein in my body. And much as I love the REST that winter provides, I am quite pleased to not have to drive on the snow on the way to work anymore. I’m retired. However, the Lord need only need point the way to the mountains that need to be scaled, iced ponds that need skated, and sleighs that need ridden near my mansion in Heaven. I’m ready to fly!


Signs and Wonders - 10/02/19


On Sunday the first thing my preacher said to the congregation when he got to the pulpit was..."Did you see that Roll Cloud on Saturday?"  He was looking up!  As a matter of fact, I DID see the cloud.  In fact, my husband said first, "That's a weird looking cloud."  This picture is after it had already went overhead.  It was much bigger coming!  It was very different looking than the other clouds around it as you can see.  So I was ecstatic when the preacher mentioned it!  

Even though we sit a couple sections away from the lobby where the preacher stands to shake hands when people leave, we are normally one of the first people out the door as we don't really know anyone well enough to stand around and talk.  So I was the first one to arrive...here was our conversation:


Me:     "The cloud.  Most people don't look up these days and wouldn't see that cloud."

Him:    "We all look at our shoes too much."

Me:     "You saw the cloud.  God was showing you a sign and a wonder."

Him:    "It was an incredible cloud!"

Me:     "I know...I took pictures!"


He mentioned one more thing during the sermon.  He used the word "precipice".  Then he said it several times and said he loved the word.  He said, "We are sitting on a precipice and something exciting is going to happen but I don't know what!" He was very giddy about it!


That could only come from a Holy Spirit prompting.  How exciting!

Our Hunger Games – 09/25/19


I decided to watch all the Hunger Game movies. I’d read the books a while back but didn’t recall watching every movie. Since I watched them all closely together this past week I found something interesting. If you’ve not read the books or seen the movies, District 1 is where the government is housed and all the other districts provide for everyone in District 1. As such, all the “color” is in the capital, all the make up and weird looking people and hairstyles etc. Districts 2 thru 12 are all the drab people. Not much color of course…they are poor and barely make a living as they send all their products to the capital. This first picture is a District 1 person along with a District 12 person. Can you spot the difference? (duh)

Today I had an epiphany while watching the last movie, that we already have a District 1 in our world, and we see it on television daily. When I watch movies that I’ve recorded on TV, I fast forward the commercials. But today I saw so many that represented District 1. Makeup infomercials, exercise and perfect body commercials, owning the designer clothes commercials, “be the best you can be commercials”…even perfume commercials are all about how you can attract someone else. We are already living in this day. Television promotes the commercials and all the “housewives” and reality shows you can watch. Do these people even have the same problems we do? Eventually those in the outlying districts understood that the elite people in district 1 were at the mercy of others..the PTB as it were.

Who cares about makeup if you are mourning the dead? Who is concerned about what you wear, if you are in pain or cannot walk? What does it matter that you smell good if you don’t even have enough food for your next meal? THAT is the reality!!! These people that promote all this ME ME ME need to take a tour through a hospital or visit a funeral home. Take a walk on the wild side of life and visit a Medicaid office. God is separating the sheep and the goats alright. And we can watch it happen 24/7, right on TV. We all know that Television is “not real” but there are many people that believe they NEED all these things they see, in order to be happy. What they need is prayer, as prayer changes things. God already knows their problems and issues and is just WAITING to help them! If you know anyone like this, pray for them today, for today may be the day of their Salvation!

The Fall - 09/22/19


I bought a new bike yesterday. Technically it is called an adult tricycle. I know right? But it is what it is. You see, a few months ago I was getting on my bike to take a quick ride with my husband. We live in the country and ride up and down the road on occasion. I hopped on the bike and promptly fell over. Problem was…I could not get the bike off me. It’s old and heavy and thank you God that my husband was right there to pull the bike off. The fall left a couple nasty burn marks as I fell on the concrete. My husband quickly panicked because he thought I hit my head. Since our daughter’s death, we’ve discovered that we are concerned about each other much more that we used to be. We two are all we have in this world. But I told him I was alright even while he was running over because I knew what he was thinking. Long story short…I still wanted to ride a bike but I no longer trusted in my old clonky two-wheeler. 

(retitled the Fall as my husband pointed out...technically I did not start pedaling anywhere, I still stood on a pedal and fell over :)

Last week it occurred to me that I should get a new bike. I wanted to be able to ride whenever I wanted to…not wait for hubby to come home yada yada yada. So I had a lightbulb moment. To be honest I believe God was prompting me.  The prompt was..a three wheeler! (sounds better than a trike). That was the answer! I started researching online and knew right away that was going to work. As I told my husband about it, my FIRST question to him upon looking at the pictures online…was did he think our backpacks would fit in the basket? Because it’s all about prepping at this point right? Yes a bike is better than walking in an emergency, but it’s also important to have food and water for a few days. As you can see in the picture, everything is gonna be just fine.  :-)


What if the reason for the fall was not to injure me or slow me down. What if the reason…is that a new bike with a basket will be needed at some point? Maybe even not by me! I believe with all my heart that EVERYTHING happens for a reason. I’ve given my entire life to Christ so I am on His path. I never know what He is going to put in my path but I trust Him. And so someday somewhere somehow, someone will have a bicycle that has a basket and a safety flag as a precaution when left behind. We are good to go!

The Oasis - 09/13/19


This is a picture of my "office"...aka the Oasis.  The Lord has had me on a new journey since June...writing a series of books!  I am starting with "worldbuilding" which is SO fun!  Similar to JRR Tolkien planning and mapping out all the Lord of the Rings books, I am doing the same.  I needed a place to accomplish this difficult task so my husband helped me organize the spare bedroom.  What you are seeing is what makes me smile.  In the corner on the wall are miniature shoes (I have another shelf unit to the right of the windows. I've had this collection packed away for 15 years and since we've been unpacking our attic...my husband found these shoes and to be honest, I was just thrilled!  I am not a "shoe" person per se, but I love this little collection I started long ago.


Above the shoes is an ornamental bird feeder my daughter purchased for me on a missions trip in Jamaica. Our cat is in the window on her perch, and to her right are angels we received in my daughter's funeral flower arrangements. The blue chair is antique and belonged to Aunt Louie and it has a thin blanket thrown over it that my daughter liked to take to the beach.  On the table is the small house that I  purchased to give me inspiration while writing. 

This seems to be a cottage not unlike you'd find in an elven forest. :-)  Under the light...is my puzzle piece which if you have followed this website for many years, then you read about it.  It is my hope, my encouragement, and my small token from God as a promise that He is speaking to us in these last days. (puzzle story here if you scroll down a bit)I display that puzzle piece wherever I go.


To the left of the blue chair is a small water fountain that makes a lovely rippling sound when plugged in. Other things are simply office gadgets and oh at times I'll light a candle and turn on the water fountain and just have PEACE flow through me!  This has been the worst year of my life and I realize I am sharing very personal things with you but I want you also to see that the Lord can take away our griefs and despair.  I still cry now and then but He has given me a new task...of writing.  I don't know how long it will last, maybe not much longer if we are transformed.  But it has occupied my mind for now and that is a very good thing.

Football Games – 09/09/19


There are two prophecies about United States Football games coming to an abrupt halt. One is with Lisa and the other is with John Paul Jackson. During JPJ’s prophetic headlines visions he saw:


NFL Postpones all Games Until Answer Found


Lisa has seen something happen to a football stadium: Her visions can be found here.


https://www.thecallofthebride.com/lisa-s-visions

Here is what Lisa has seen. Football season started last Thursday 09/05 and her vision was 5 years ago. Will events happen this year that John Paul Jackson told us about? We don’t really know what it is but if his prophecy is related to Lisa’s then we know what the answer will be.


09/20/14 - I spoke with Lisa tonight and the Lord has given her more insight into her USA bombs vision…

Bombs: 


She feels that ISIS is behind these bombs that are coming upon the USA and very likely other countries as well. The government is aware of the planning behind the scenes and is encouraging it. Lisa has strong feelings that there will be bombings in NY, DC and the Chicago area. These events are tied to others but in a different way. The ones I mention are more scattered around the cities. However she has also seen a potentially larger destruction of bombing of a football stadium. Lisa has a sense of where it is and says that there is enough water nearby to flood the stadium when she sees explosions. Lisa saw her vision from overhead and says there is a partial roof over this stadium so we are not sure if that means a partially retractable dome roof or not. That is simply what she saw.  Others have seen different variations of stadiums being bombed so it is possible that more than one will be attacked simultaneously.


01/04/15 - Snowing Vision


Lisa was having her quiet time with God on Sunday when He showed her something interesting….it was snowing.  Then she saw the arm of someone that was drawing back to throw a snowball.  Immediately she knew that once that snowball was thrown, an avalanche of snowballs would be coming.  She knew this indicated that once the first problem occurred, many would follow.  (again Julie’s train wreck vision).  She asked God, “What is the first snowball?”   She was shown the USA getting bombed.


I know many people have seen missiles and rockets hitting the coasts.  Lisa has seen NYC and Washington DC getting bombed.  She and many others have seen Hoover Dam in this same situation, along with football stadiums and shopping malls, also schools.  So we don’t know specifically what will occur first.  We know that the USA has to go down before Israel…so she has to rely solely on God for her rescue.  But once this first wound happens, then Israel too will be in dire straits.  I personally believe we may see the CA earthquake first, more storms etc. before this attack comes but that is merely a guess

The Shovel – 09/05/19


I thought about titling this the Snakekiller…you’ll see why in a minute. My husband hates snakes…HATES them. He doesn’t run from them when they show up, he obliterates them. We have a few types of snakes in Indiana. Where I live centrally we have garter snakes (don’t click on the link if you don’t want to see Wikipedia pictures). Harmless for the most part but they can be rather long. Long as in 12 inches or more. When I posted my dailies a few years back, I think I had a story in there about a snake. About once every five years I will find one in the house. I know many people think they are from the devil and many times they are, but sometimes a snake is just a snake. Like when the fall harvest time comes, we know to expect mice in the house so we set traps ahead of time, and take measures to prevent them coming into the house. Same with these snakes. You can only do so much. I am not afraid of snakes. I’ve trapped them in jars before, and last time one was in the house, I put a heavy flower pot on top and a brick on top of that. I had to go to work and needed to leave right then, but I left the pot for hubby to take care of the snake later. He has no problem killing them. Go figure. But anyway…

Yesterday I went out to our porch to remove some spiderwebs with a broom. These were outside but had made their homes in windows where I could see them. NOT ALLOWED! As I was ready to open the porch door with weapon in hand, I saw what appeared to be a long thick shoestring on the porch. Hey…wait a minute…that’s a snake! I hadn’t opened the door yet so I tapped the broom up and down a few times and said, “You can’t stay here!” It left right away. However I was upset with myself for not being quieter and sneaking back in the house and going into the garage to get the shovel. THE shovel. The shovel that hubby always uses to chop heads off snakes. That’s the one in the picture. Guess where it is right now. In the corner of the porch by the broom. 😊 Hubby put it there last night. The message is clear...chop now, sweep later.  Oh, and he found the snake a few hours later. It was getting windy and he thought a storm was coming so he proceeded to lay down his basketball goal (portable but large). Mr Snake was coiled up underneath the black base. Probably nice and toasty with the sun warming on the black coating. Well he WAS coiled up. Hubby smashed him with a rock, then decapitated him with THE SHOVEL. Then left the rock on him all night, “Just to be safe.”

Backpack Prepping – 09/02/19


Today (Labor Day in the United States) my husband and I went through backpacks that we’ve had stored in our respective vehicles for several years. The reason was to check the food and water and clothes and hey the clothes don’t fit anymore! And not in a good way! We’ll be making some substitutions there. For about two months those backpacks have been sitting by the back door in the garage, ready to be brought in and explored but we’ve been putting it off. However, after watching and posting this video, even my husband (who was listening at the time) is looking into our emergency preparations again. I think it’s because the woman in this video (used to work for FEMA as a “worst case scenario” person) said something that resonated with my husband. She only got one tomato on a plant this year. We’ve had the same problem. In fact, we planted Roma tomatoes this year and the insides are basically hollow. We did get several but they are hollow and they have black spots. Plus more of our crop did not pan out so we have replanted cold weather crops for the fall. Whether it comes up or not is in God’s hands. I guess I’m telling you this so you too can decide what the Lord is leading you to do in regards to prepping. Over this coming weekend we will be doing even more planning and I gotta say, I’m glad my husband is more into this than usual. I have felt for about a month now that fall is coming sooner rather than later. I’ve noticed the spider webs came out sooner this season and the crickets are chirping 24/7 when it used to be just at night. I remarked today that I hadn’t heard the tree frogs at night, at all this summer. Which now that I think about it is VERY strange because they are LOUD and everywhere! Just not this year. Hmm! Time to go to the Lord and be ready for change of seasons. Recall that God told us through Barb of 278pikelk that the EQ that splits the USA will come when it’s cold…freezing cold! That's why I am keeping an eye ever on this Peace Deal.

Alien Rant 1 (cuz I'm sure there are more to come :) - 09/01/19


I watch Ancient Aliens and some of those other oddity shows.  It really ruffles my feathers because these people...these LEADERS...these really smart PHD humans seem to think we are being visited by aliens!  You know what?  They have finally caught up with those of us that know these beings are inter-dimensional and  they are finally admitting to that.  And this is not new...right?  But, what IS new for me is that there are so many astrophysicists and doctors of this and that and quantum mechanics guys and they are SMART but they don't know they are being fooled!  As my mom would say, they have book knowledge but no wisdom.  And the guy to the right?  He takes the cake.

" The reason we have religion today is because of misunderstood visits of extraterrestrials."   Giorgio Tsoukalos   (article link)

Giorgio Giorgio...(sigh).  Watching these shows used to make me angry but now I am watching them because thou dost need to know thy enemy.  And THIS guy is being fooled by the enemy BIG time.  He wants SO bad to believe that these aliens have our best interests at heart. And everything these shows promote and "learn" and discuss....is ALL in the Bible!  They actually think and it all boils down to this...that the Bible was written BECAUSE of these aliens.  And by aliens I hope you know I mean the fallen angels and their demonic-housed grays.  Every story they tell on these shows can be found in the Bible or in the Book of Enoch or Jasher etc.  And they'll quote them, oh yesseree Bob.  They can quote these books but in their mind, the stories from these ancient texts were only written thousands of years later by the silly humans who could only write what they saw.  I could go on...but I'll stop there so I can sleep tonight.  There may be some of you, perhaps most of you, that aren't really interested or watching alien stuff and that's ok, go where the Lord leads you.  You can skip these ponderings in the days ahead.  That's why I title them now...so you know what you're getting into.  'Course the image is a giveaway.  :D   

Good Witch - 08/30/19 


Oh dear...you know or know of the Hallmark Channel right?  Under their About Us page the word -family- is used 5 times and they note:


" As the country’s leading destination for quality family entertainment, Hallmark Channel delivers on the 100-year legacy of the Hallmark brand."


Yet what they show is anything but.  The very next sentence contains..." In addition to its signature new original movies, the network features an ambitious lineup of other new original content, including scripted primetime series, such as “Good Witch..."


I used to watch Bewitched when I was little.  I read and owned all the Harry Potter books and movies.  And I'm sure I dressed up as a witch on Halloween once or twice wayyyyy back.  I did not know, did not make it my concern to know that God had told us long ago exactly what to do about presenting anything with witch content before our eyes.:


Also, many of those who had practiced magic brought their books together and burned them in the sight of all. Acts 19:19


I've told you before that I burned all my Harry Potter books and movies.  At the time I was barely waking up and just KNEW it was what I was supposed to do but did not know why.  Now we know.  Are you paying attention?

" And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him ."

Genesis 5:24
