Words of Wonder
"Be still and know that I AM God." Psalms 46:10
04/28/21 - "Bedlam"
Words of Wonder do not always mean wonderFUL. Sometimes they just mean surprise or astonishment. Around 3:00 a.m. this morning the Holy Spirit whispered "Bedlam". I looked the word up:
Bedlam: A place, scene, or state of uproar and confusion
I asked God about this as I lay there and He said, "There will be bedlam soon, Julie. It will tear the streets apart."
I instantly thought of another post that I put up today about Pastor Dana's dream "The Flaming Spear". He states there will be military directing traffic in the streets this summer, flags at half mast, fires all over the US, you get the picture.
Later when I got up, I was looking at Twitter and I follow The Times of Israel. There was a story about Islamists on the right forming a "change" government which I thought was odd and I wanted to read the story but I can't easily read those tweets on my phone so I opened up the Times of Israel on the internet. Scrolling through the headlines to find the story, I was shocked to find this headline!
I've never used the word bedlam in my life, but I am sure but that headline was a confirmation of God's Word to me! We need to keep praying for Israel as well as the United States. If you haven't read Pastor Dana's dream, you can find it here.
04/21/20 - The Cream of the Crop
This morning the Lord was speaking to me about when He returns and He noted that He would come back for the "cream of the crop". Most of us know this term (also creme de la creme) as meaning the best of a particular group. Of course this points to the Bride, the ecclesia called out of the church. Those wise virgins who are ready to go when the Bridegroom comes.
A small amount of additional study revealed that separating cream from raw milk is not an immediate thing. It takes TIME. And that's a perfect parallel to what has happened to us over the YEARS. We've been called out and our hearts have been drawn closer to the Lord. I felt encouraged by this today and wanted to share with you. :-)
03/18/21 - Guardian Angel
While I was dreaming early yesterday morning, I became lucid and aware that I was dreaming. My first thought is always...how can I see or speak to God? Most times I look for a door but this time was different. There were people rushing past me and I decided to get in their way to see if they went through me. They did AND I could feel the rush of the breeze as they went past. That amazed me and so I decided to "let go" and just see what God would do.
I started falling/floating very calmly. I felt so at peace! As I was falling, I started to hear a song very clearly. I recognized the song as it was a favorite of mine as a child when I took piano lessons.
Nothing supernatural with God took place during this freefall dream but I was exhilarated and almost dancing as I floated to the music.
When I awoke and was pondering the dream, I realized that in the past (recorded somewhere on this website) I had learned from God that my Guardian Angel's name is Swan. As I was thinking about this, I asked the Lord what my friend's Guardian Angel's name was. Every Thursday I have breakfast with a church friend and we discuss life and also are going through a Charles Stanley Book "Relying on the Holy Spirit". Now...before the question of who her angel was, was completed in my mind, the Lord gave me the angel's name. Bertol. Of course I had to look that up and it IS a name and means bright strength/renowned leader. I found that fascinating and was anxious to tell my friend.
As we met for breakfast, I told her I had a gift from God for her and proceeded to explain everything I had learned about Swan, and leading up to her Guardian Angel's name. She was excited about a "gift from God" but is very much hesitant about all things supernatural. The one good thing is that her son has woke up and has been telling her things going on in the world, for some time. So off and on I'll tell her something as well (like Trump will return).
I share this with you because...well...because God has gifts for everyone and He uses us to distribute them when we allow that. Even if the person on the receiving end does not believe in God or have faith...God still loves them and wants them encouraged. While God gave me the name of this angel to give to my friend (she lost her husband recently), I wanted her to know that God is thinking about her. I think in the coming days, she will be pondering all this in her heart. I hope the story encourages you as well to ask God how you can help others.
03/13/21 - Mighty Warriors
"The Mighty Warriors are rising. When they do, it will be a whole new ballgame." (heard early a.m.)
03/04/21 - Wait and See
Tides will shake; oceans will rock. The heavens and earth will clash. But My will on earth will be accomplished. Just you wait and see!
03/03/21 – Abide in Me
This morning the Lord spoke and said, “My job is to make the world go ‘round 24/7. Your job is to abide in Me. That’s all you need to do.”
I was reminded of the PDF of free Words from the Lord that you can find here.
Jesus says in John 15:4 “Abide in Me and I in you”. Without Christ our fruit is not good and will only rot. We cannot bear good fruit unless we abide in Jesus. And here is the thing…there is nothing we have to DO. We just BE. That’s why His Message this morning was so simple. We are told we have to do things in order to bear good fruit but that’s not what He says. If we abide in Him, we WILL bear good fruit without trying because He is the One working through us. That's all we have to do!
03/02/21 – Cosmic
Friends, early this morning I heard “cosmic sprinters” in my spirit. Knowing this was a Word of Wonder from the Lord, the first thing I thought of was this verse that we all know:
“but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. Isaiah 40:31
When I think of not growing weary while running (which I can barely run at all right now), that sounds amazing! A sprinter is one who :
1. The act or an instance of sprinting, especially a short race at top speed.
2. A burst of speed or activity.
v. sprint·ed, sprint·ing, sprints
To move rapidly or at top speed for a brief period, as in running or swimming.
To move over (a distance) rapidly or at top speed for a brief period
And “Cosmic” means
1. of or relating to the whole universe:
2. occurring or originating in outer space, esp as opposed to the vicinity of the earth, the solar system, or the local galaxy:
I believe God is telling us that physically it will not matter the distance that we will be running in the near future…even if it is from one end of the universe to another…it will seem like a short quick run. Imagine that! I know I am literal when it comes to these things but for sure once we are in our glorified bodies, we will run and never ever grow weary! Let that be encouraging to you today!
