Vision of The Bride

Abigail and Dolley readers a while back, I was in church worshiping the Lord and He gave me a vision of the Bride of Christ.  It's a hard one to describe but I will do my best.

The massive figure stood thousands of feet tall and was comprised of individual people.  We moved and danced before the Lord like a flock of starlings, each person perfectly in tune with the body.  She glimmered and shown glory from heaven as she danced before the Lord.  It was stunning.  I'd seen the pictures of Christ made up of ordinary people and when you zoom out you can see His face, the body was very much like that.  We flew side by side, moving with the body, my dark hair a perfect shadow on the figure.  Her hair swayed long and dark, people of every race and color made up the body.

As I looked to my side, a few people disappeared, then others and the Lord said to me, the Bride is not yet complete, there are others that must come.

Enjoy the Starlings Dancing, it is the closest thing I've ever seen that even resembles the vision.  Maranantha.

French Kissing the Devil

(Update:  the below blog was written Saturday 11/14 as the news from Paris rolled in.   I was very troubled in my spirit and sat down to compose a blog.  As I was writing, the Lord gave me a vision of a person walking up to the Devil, embracing and tongue kissing him.   When they pulled away, blood dripped from their lips and was smeared across their face.  The person stood with their arm around the shoulders of Satan and threw me a look of hatred.  It was disturbing and I was hesitant to write this or the blog.  It seemed insensitive and cruel but I was obedient.  It is now revealed that the concert the French victims were watching in the theater was a satanic metal band.  The song they were singing as the terrorist entered the concert hall was "Kiss the Devil".)

My Dad always asserted that at the end of the age the dividing line between good and evil would be so stark that there would be no gray.  I believe the day is upon us, the great delusion has begun.  People believe in their own righteousness, they reject God and his truth.

The humanist point of reference declares that man is the arbiter of right and wrong, that each person goes along the path they feel best suits them.  When you remove the immovable laws of God and right and wrong the morality of the world breaks down.  This is what we are witnessing.

If you are not firmly entrenched in the Word of God, you will be deceived.  We are seeing it everywhere as great madness descends upon the world.  Well meaning atheists are recoiling at the slaughter and terror in Paris but what they fail to realize is that they have by default aligned themselves with the same team.  By rejecting the free gift of Salvation, they choose their side.

In human standards, they may believe themselves to be good and righteous but by the standard of holiness required for salvation, we all have sinned and fall short of the perfection demanded by a holy God.  Thus, they are blinded.

Kissing the Devil Unaware
They walk up to the devil disguised as an angel of light and reason, put their arm around his shoulder, and tongue kiss him.  They pull away from the bloody kiss and see the world through their blind eyes.  The original promise of having the knowledge of good and evil was a lie for they can not see the difference and will call what is good evil and what is evil good.  For the devil is a liar, he was a liar from the beginning, and when he speaks he speaks his native language of lies.  The world has embraced the liar and he will destroy them.

Days of Judgement - The Idol of Education

Recently, the Lord has been showing me the various ways that His Judgement is upon this nation and the world.

Exodus 20:4-5 "You shall not make for yourself an idol, or any likeness of what is in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the water under the earth. You shall not worship them or serve them; for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children, on the third and the fourth generations of those who hate Me,"

We have made education an idol.  By proclaiming education is the answer to all social ills:  poverty, racism, crime, sexism, bigotry, we worship at the alter of education.  I start with education because I believe it was the Supreme Courts Ruling against prayer in schools that begun the Judgement we are seeing today.  The 1962 ruling is a watershed moment; for more on how this effected education, look at these shocking statistics.  What I find interesting is that we seemed to have stopped measuring the effects.  A quick Google search turns up several sites but most of them stop with figures from the early 1990's.  Perhaps it's too depressing to contemplate, even for statisticians.

"Visiting iniquity upon the  children to the third and fourth generations to those who hate Me."  Approximately 4 generations of children have gone through public schools K-12 since the ruling.  Dr. Wendy Bradshaw's resignation letter to the Polk Country School Board has reverberated with parents, students, and teachers across the country, the picture it paints is stark and startling.  There is a hopelessness and frustration in the letter that captures what so many Americans feel today on an entire host of issues.

Universities have become corrupt cesspools of liberal fascism and ignorance.  College students will sign petitions to ban water, kill babies up to five year old, and repeal the bill of rights.  Tuition bankrupts students intellectually and monetarily while giving them little of what it takes to become a functioning and contributing member of society.  Students are concerned with idiotic issues like gender specific pronouns being acts of micro-aggression.  Professors have to give "Trigger Warnings" to the pampered students because these fragile souls might get their feelings hurt!  This new generation of kids... well, even this liberal professor is afraid of them.

From Common Core, to the skyrocketing cost of tuition and student debt, to zero tolerance policies that expose ridiculous loss of common sense.  In the end, the thing that we have loved so much has become ridiculous.  Sadly, even the church is not immune to this false worship.  The Lord's Judgement of the education system is clear to those with the eyes to see.

Dreams of the Coming Judgement

Abigail and Dolley readers lately I've felt the Lord calling me to begin a new series on how He is judging this nation.  This morning I had a dream that I'd like to share with you as the first part of this new series.

The dream started at work, in a filthy run down office and warehouse.  I was new and it was my job to clean it up.  I wandered around and met with former co-workers, none of whom I was excited to work with again.  It was dark and disorganized and a spirit of defeat haunted the place.  (I believe this represents the culture of corporate America today.  What was once a place of hustle, bustle, and good work is now populated by people you don't want to work with in a run down inefficient environment.)

I started piling up trash in the hallway and a couple of great coworkers appeared like magic and began helping.  I was so excited to see them and had a little hope!  I wondered how we were going to get all the trash we were piling up out of the building.  My coworker said, "Oh, I've already called.  See here he is."  A young man drove up with a truck and began loading the trash to haul away.  This was a bright spot, coworkers pitching in, and there was a young strong guy doing the heavy lifting.  (Personally, I've just started a new job and this chapter represents the hope and the optimism I am feeling.)

I ask the young man to follow me, there was junk in the bathroom.  As we walked in together, there was trash everywhere.  As we worked, we were startled by a strange man's hand emerging from a pulled shower curtain, the nails were painted pink.  The young man with me said, "What are you doing here?  Go away, I've told you I don't want to be gay."  The man arose naked from the bathwater and displayed enormous genitalia; I stared in fascinated horror before turning away in disgust and rushing out the door.  (Obviously, this is a reference to the seduction of our bright, strong young men.)

I emerged with the toilet overflowing filth behind me into a gathering in my childhood kitchen.  Sitting around a table were beautiful women in their late 60's.  They were fashionable, well put together, trim and tan; Southern Ladies.  As I looked at them, I thought, we used to look like this.  Americans used to not be sloppy and fat.  I asked what they were doing and they told me they were trying out a new cream to eliminate flab and belly fat, I saw that they were already trim and wondered why they were so focused on their looks.  Their husbands were in attendance and were devoted and loving, I was upset with them for wasting money on a beauty treatments they did not need when there were needy people who could have been helped. (I think this represents the advantages the Baby Boomers had but squandered.)

Then out the window, I saw a monster sized wolf.  He climbed on the roof above where we stood and began diving at the roof like a fox after a mouse in the snow.  I knew it was safe in the house because my Father had built the roof.  (My childhood home represents an America that was safe, secure, and well built.  The enemy might try to get in but we were protected.)

But then I remembered my cats,  I knew if the wolf saw them they would be killed.   I ran outside and found my husband.  I yelled to him to find the cats.  (I've been quite worried about the fate of my pets should the Rapture happen and them be left behind.)    The monster saw us and came down from the roof, my husband led him away to the back yard and I ran in the opposite direction.  The front doors to the house were locked at I had to try to get to safety in the backyard.  (This represents leaving the safety of the protected house and then not being able to get back in.  A Nation that leaves God behind can not expect to be able to run back in when danger is lurking.)

As I rounded the corner of the house, the wolf saw me, changed directions and turned to attack.  I screamed and ran as fast as I could but there was no escape.  Just as I was about to be devoured I stopped, turned, and stood my ground.  I rebuked it in the name of Jesus and the monster howled in pain.  Emboldened, I drove him from my yard.  Each time I rebuked him, it shrunk in size and fled in defeat.  (This represents the real threat of the enemy and it was only when we are about to lose our lives do we take the authority that has always been ours to wield.)

Exhausted from the battle, I realized I needed to call Animal Control.  The government needed to come and get this wolf out of my neighborhood.  I dialed 311 and a city worker picked up the phone, but he would not stop talking to his co-worker and listen to me.  They were visiting and discussing the jobs they wish they had or were going to get.  I kept yelling in the phone, "Hello?  Hey, we need help out here."  There was no help coming from the government.

As I'd tried to get the attention of the government, I'd begun strolling toward the back of my childhood neighborhood.  You don't often visit the back of a neighborhood if you live near the front.  To my horror, it was destroyed.  At first I thought it was rebuilding but then I recognized that the construction had been abandoned for years.  (This represents the destruction of our homes, our way of life, our families.)

Finally, the back of the neighborhood turned into a huge junkyard where cars were piled six stories high and the dump went on as far as the eye could see.  There were shiny new corporate buildings overlooking the junked cars.  Everyone was walking and I warned my fellow pedestrians about the wolf nearby.  One lady said those wolves are everywhere now, that she'd seen six of them cross the road just up the way.  A man on a bicycle rode by and gave me an insufferable superior look.  I scoffed, "What are you looking at?"  He laughed and rode off, it was then that I realized that he at least had a bike.  Nobody else did because all the cars had been destroyed while the men in the new shiny buildings looked on.

Were You Born Insane?

Abigail and Dolley readers - I'm pleased to share with you a blog from my husband, the Krusher.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Truth 101: At our natural birth we are born into sin. I found 19 scriptures to back up this premise. Perhaps, Romans 5:12 describes this inescapable state of sin best. In my view, as a result of this state of sin, we are also born into a FORM of INSANITY. Yes, I know, this premise may sound out there, but please continue reading.

Crazy Baby
God's word clearly states that when we are truly born again, we are renewed...Renewed from what? Romans 12:2 says: "Do not copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God TRANSFORM you into a NEW person by changing the way you THINK. Then you will LEARN to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect." Transform - New - Think - Learn. This scripture and others (Ex: 1 Peter 1:23 and Titus 3:5) describe this renewal, and make it clear that we must be changed, transformed, renewed from what we WERE (originally). In the simplest of terms, there are two kinds of people on planet earth, those who have been transformed by God and continue to seek Him who changed them (the few), and those who are still broken (the many).

If we are born sinners, then we are NOT whole, perfected or complete. We are missing many things, and as per God's word, we need renewing change by His spirit. How could we possibly understand absolute truth or see the world as it REALLY is, if we are born without God's spirit, which is born DAMAGED goods. Thus, our fallen world and most people of it (not saved) are perplexed, delusional, and at best focused primarily on optics (how things appear). These are forms of insanity.

This insane delusion is even more disturbing in that through ubiquitous technology (the internet) we have the ability to search for truth, history, checked facts, stats etc. via thousands of sources of verified information. Truth is more available than ever! Yet, we ignore it, or we are too lazy to search for it. Perhaps a reality TV show which is not even real (more madness and perplexity), sports (a false god in itself) or some other temporal (worldly) activity awaits our time, attention and hard earned money.

Crazy Loon
Before we are transformed by God's renewing (supernatural) power, we do NOT know that we are insane. We conform to our flesh, our warped mind, the world, and the culture (the majority) as described in Romans 12. Yet, for the most part, we think that we are normal, sane and whole, and this is reinforced (incorrectly) by the majority and most of the culture.

This world is insane: ill, delusional, perplexed and focuses on merely optics. People in and of this world do not recognize their own (true) state of being. This form of "insanity" is evident in the fallen and broken world around us, and seeps into every part of our culture including: education, entertainment, government, politics, science, commerce and yes much of the CHURCH.

Currently, the world is so crazy that some astute and inquisitive people who are NOT saved are beginning understands that something is very wrong, and that things are as they have never been in the history of planet earth.
