Transported – To Wait

Transported –To Wait

Trembling,
In this place I wait
Promised, hoping,
Told of a better fate
Than any of the years,
Or days, 
Down here
Still I am determined
To wait

This level 
Is heavy
Weighed down
By much
Painful at times
To the touch
It has been promised
Though if I continue 
To look up
Much better awaits

A lighter level
Of existence
But for all my life here
I will have to stay near
In order to receive 
A Spirit’s assistance
Which, of course,
Depends solely upon
My acceptance

Light everywhere 
Will we receive
Those who refuse to 
Give up
Remaining in belief
Purity, glory,
Living righteousness abounds
As we partake in the sounds
Of the angels’ dancing praise!

A Daughter, A Son

A Daughter, A Son

We are his daughters, his sons
If your Father were under attack
Would you just turn tail
And run?
In my heart, I hope not

When they deny His Name
They abuse His Spirit
Of
Perfect Love, Joy, Peace
Patience, Goodness, Kindness
To name a few
But it is up to all of us
To me and you

An evil, destructive satan
Wants to destroy all of us
And watching the world today
He does it without much effort 
Or a fuss
God’s disciples we are meant 
To be
So our Father’s love & forgiveness
Every eternal soul here may see

It truly is a battle for our
Hearts & minds
So step up,
Join the front lines
Even pain-filled at times
As it might be
Because,
Without us in the war
The enemy has already won!

The City

A Wondrous City
This Holy Jerusalem
Containing at one time
A temple built for only
           HIM

His presence to visit
Between golden cherubim’s wings
He listened
While choirs on its steps
To Him did sing
His Name
His Power
His Fame

To it one day
This Only God
Will return
After all evil
Is vanquished
Destroyed
In one heartbeat,
Burned

So we raise holy hands
As we fall to our knees
In obedience’s path
Seeking only to please
(to be transformed
your earth & us)

No longer to rebel in ignorance
Against your beauty
To rise to Your higher calling,
That greater, purer duty
And follow Your Forever Call
Watching, waiting
As once again your raise
Her holy walls
Regrow, renew
Re-begin
This Holy Jerusalem!

A Repeat – To Testify

This a repeat of an earlier post. I realize people are sometimes uncomfortable sharing supernatural or spiritual experiences they have had, but I only tell this because I want people to know how real God is and how much He does loves you.

I have sleep apnea. I don’t know if you know what that is, but that’s where when you lay down on your back to sleep the muscles that hold up your soft palette at the back of your throat relax so much that the palette itself collapses downward and blocks your airway. In other words, you stop breathing. It is dangerous and can kill you.

However, one night before I realized how dangerous sleep apnea can be, I went to sleep one night and somehow must have gotten off my side and into a position that was not safe. I woke up suddenly and was in a different place.

I remember feeling a slight tinge of fear but was mostly confused, thinking where am I?? All around me was nothing but deep blackness until suddenly I could see this spiral of beautiful, puffy white clouds spiraling off into the distance. I did not want to look at the far distant end of the spiral because I had this sudden knowledge that if I looked at it, there would be no going back. Somehow I just knew that. Don’t know how, but I just did, but I was not given a choice. I had to look at the end of the spiral, and so I did.

Next, let me say that I had no physical sensation at all. I was fully awake, fully conscious, but there were no physical sensations. I had no awareness of a body.

To get back to where I was, as soon as I looked at the end of the spiral of clouds, I was in the other place, but this one was different. This beautiful, beautiful light was everywhere. It glistened and shone like nothing I have ever seen. But the light was alive. There was a massive intelligence or presence inside the light. Like nothing I have ever experienced.

It was so bright it almost hurt to look at it and the colors of the rainbow were moving through it constantly. It was so bright that I turned to look away, but again, I was not given a choice. I had to look at the light so I did.

When I turned to look at it again, suddenly it felt like somebody had taken me and thrown me as hard as they could up against a brick wall. There was this really hard boom, and I was back inside my body. Totally awake but back inside of my body going “What just happened to me.”

I laid there for a few minutes, thinking about what I had just seen and experienced. I moved around a little trying to get my bearings back and then decided the only thing it could have been was for a few minutes or less, because it happened so quickly, so very quickly, is I think I died! It is the only explanation I can think of.

I believe for a very few brief seconds, I was allowed to see some of the glory of the Living God. The light was beautiful beyond words. I wish everyone could have seen it. Unlike anything I’ve ever seen before.

The only reason I wanted to tell this is I hope it will reassure everyone that there really is life after death, and that God is more beautiful than any of my weak human words could ever express.

I pray that the living God Himself will bless your day and your whole life and that you can get to know Him better. He really does love you very, very much. God Bless You.

Warning, Warning!

Warning, Warning! 

Warning, warning
Read all about it
Warning, warning
Voices raise to shout it

The great reckoning
Is coming
For us,
Out
the time is running

Soon will we all
Peoples be allowed
God’s face & presence
No longer will be disavowed

All to be judged
In His great presence
Investigating each life’s essence
In His Book it is assured
No one left not adjured
To be brought before His throne!!

Revelation 20:11-13 Then I saw a great white throne and him who was seated on it. The earth and the heavens fled from his presence, and there was no place for them. And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and books were opened. Another book was opened, which is the book of life. The dead were judged according to what they had done as recorded in the books. The sea gave up the dead that were in it, and death and Hades gave up the dead that were in them, and each person was judged according to what they had done.

Easter

Easter

White rabbits & chocolate bunnies
All those warm, soft fuzzies
Pastel eggs hidden in green grass
Until a happy child makes
A joyful discovery of them at last
With loud, sudden squeals of delight
What a truly pleasing sight!

All dressed up in clean, bright clothes
All done for this day’s special show
Soft ribbons in the hair
New shoes, polished, & on the feet
& goodies that will not long
Be allowed in a basket to keep

Nothing wrong with these simple delights
God does not mind us
Enjoying all his blessings
But with many of these gifts
May also at times come a terrible testing

This day of Easter is really
About a sacrifice
Not to be forgotten
For all our joys & pleasures
Came at the cost of another’s life!

A bloodied cross, a broken body
An empty tomb
God’s love on display
Brought about all of the
Joys & pleasures of this day

Made us once more
Welcome in Heaven
Brought us back into 
God’s loving arms
Safe at last from all of 
satan’s cruelest harms

So on that most glorious day
Our eternal souls were saved
As Christ stepped back out 
Into a world He owned
Eternity’s power rolled back
That oh so heavy stone
So you too also may
Be allowed to step out of 
Your own emptied grave!!
