ILLUSIONS OR REALITY
VISIONS OF GOD
PROPHETIC RED ALERT!
WHAT IS GOD SHOWING YOU?
Happy New Year again!! And may the Peace (health, prosperity, safety and wholeness) of God surround you and your family throughout the year.
“In the beginning of the year… the hand of the LORD was upon me. In the visions of God brought he me into the land of Israel, and set me upon a very high mountain…” Ezekiel 40:1-2
Ezekiel, this prophetic priest had been taken into captivity along with many other Jews into the land of Babylon. He had been in captivity for 25 years to the date, many of his people had become discouraged and could no longer sing the songs of Zion and some had hung their harps on the willows. He was surrounded by Discouragement, Distress, Depression and Discontent; however, his surroundings did not greatly affect him. While others were seeing negative things, no hope, no answer to prayers, and longing to go home; he was having visions of God under an open heaven.
Are there Unfulfilled Dreams, and Unreached Goals from years past? Are you watching how fast the days are going and wondering if you will ever fulfill the things in your heart?
“Where there is no vision (prophetic insight) the people perish (become loose, uncovered, go in circles, without restraint), but he that keeps the law, happy is he.” Proverbs 29:18
Ezekiel was far away from the Promise Land by natural standards, however, the power of vision transported him to his promise land. I don’t know what God has promised you or the Goals and Dreams of your heart. Nevertheless, I have been sent to tell you that if you could only lift up your heads, oh you gates, and you everlasting doors, that the King of Glory will manifest in a new way.
The heavens above you and in you are open. God wants to transport you into the reality of what you’ve waited for. Ezekiel had an out of the body experience, you must step out of the physical to see your destiny and allow it to become a reality.
ILLUSIONS OR REALITY
You can choose to see the world of illusions that’s been painted on the canvas of mass consciousness minds, or you can choose to see the realm of Reality.
The realm of illusions portrays Captivity and Limitations; it is that mentality which keeps us from our Promised Land. It is the realm that dictates our E-motions (energy in motion) and Imag-E-nation (energy used to becoming what we believe), thus causing us to create and uncreate what appears as our reality. Bondages and limitations are only states of mind, they are not determined by outside circumstances (physical, financial, emotional, spiritual). However, your state of mind will determine or create your outside circumstance.
The realm of Reality is available to all that would press their way through the crowds of negative thoughts, opinions of others and fears of men. Those that are willing to be criticized, rejected, and stepped on to touch the hem of Reality’s garment will unleash the limitless power to create and uncreate their reality. This Unlimited Power does not come from outside of humans, nor can it be dictated by external circumstances, it is the mind of Christ within. However, walking in this state of mind will determine or create your external circumstances.
It is important that you hold the vision before you at all times. People with no vision have no reason to live; they complain, criticize, condemn and die. Some of you that are reading these words think that time has passed you by; you’re too old, no way possible. Did not God create the system we call Time? Does He not exist in a realm before time, at the end of time, parallel to time and projects Himself through time to be on time? The illusions of Time and Age must be broken. When this happens you will no longer go through Time, but Time will go through you.
VISIONS OF GOD
The visions of God, or seeing God in everything; instead of seeing devils will bring you to your Promised Land. Visions of God are not filled with partiality, prejudice, and condemnation; rather, they are filled with Love and acceptance.
Prophetic insight becomes your weapon of warfare against your thoughts and opinions of others that seek to defy Purpose and Destiny. It serves as your launching pad into the realm of no limitations when you feel that you have plateau. It is the light to guide you through the darkest time when nothing or no one makes sense. The visions of God helps you keep your sanity in the midst of a crazy world manipulated by the realm of illusions.
“In the visions of God he brought me…and set me upon a very high mountain, on which was a structure like a city.” Ezekiel 40:2
In the visions of God you are being brought or carried, but this can only happen when you are yielding in complete surrender. The journey inward that expresses itself outward is filled with adventure and revelation knowledge.
You are being brought to a very high mountain experience so that you can understand God’s building program within. The visions are to make you aware of the mighty work that must take place within before the outward expression or realization comes.
“There was a man, whose appearance was like the appearance of brass, with a line of flax in his hand, and a measuring reed.” Ezekiel 40:3
He is shown a Man. This man represents the perfected spiritual man within, the Christ with a brilliant countenance. This is the measure of a man; those that have realized the 5-fold ministry and are no longer children tossed to and fro by religious doctrines.
The Brass tells us that the man Christ Jesus has taken our judgment, and in this experience of reality, we have judged within ourselves and have accepted the verdict of “Not Guilty”. Only when we can accept this verdict from the Divine Court for ourselves are we able to release All of humanity from Guilt. Otherwise humanity will remain in condemnation, creating religions and doctrines in their search for liberty.
The Flax speaks of blending together, continuity. This is the realization that we are All connected, in reality we cannot be separated by the religions that man has created in the realm of illusions, be in Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Hinduism, etc.
When this becomes your experience, you will see no more reason to label yourself or others. There is no male, female, black, and white; Jew (saved) or Gentile (unsaved), the middle wall of partition is broken down. We are spirit.
The Reed or Measuring Rod represents the eternal Word (thought, expression, and speech) of God. Do you measure up? Yes! It is Finished, echoes the Eternal Voice. Hallelujah!!
In this part of the visions of God, this is the realization that you are the living epistle, the flesh that’s becoming Word. In reality you are the thoughts, intents, breath and speech of God materialized.
PROPHETIC RED ALERT!!
This is the position we should find ourselves in. “Son of man, look with your eyes, and hear with your ears, and set your heart upon all that I show you; for to this intent you are brought here. Declare all that you see to the house of Israel.” Ezekiel 40:4 Sons and daughters of Adam, major secrets are being revealed that will affect the universe (multi-verses), the planet, religion and every thing on the planet.
Look With Your Eyes. We are being challenged to use the eyes that we have hardly used to see into the plan and purpose of God. Let the scales fall from your eyes in this 3rd day (3rd millennium from Christ) as they did Apostle Paul on the 3rd day. See that there are more with you than that appears against you. No weapon formed against you can prosper; all things are for your benefit. The angels of God surround you, and there are worlds around you waiting to be explored.
Hear With Your Ears. We are being challenged to be delivered from spiritual deafness. Not everyone desires to hear Truth; they are not ready to become responsible. The last miracle Jesus did before going to the cross was restore the ear of a soldier that had been cut off by the zeal of religious Peter’s sword (words). He that has ears to hear will hear.
Faith to operate in the realm of reality is activated by hearing, causing one to transcend the realm of illusions. Have the faith of God.
Set Your Mind (heart) on All that I will show you. We are being challenged to stay focused, live in a state of Meditation. Once the mind has been transformed the body and world around you must come into alignment. Whatever you have convinced your mind to believe, that must become your reality.
We must learn not to meditate on things we don’t want or are afraid of. This is called Worrying or negative meditation. The perfected man told Ezekiel to only meditate on All that he showed him. Christ exists within in the realm of reality and can only reveal truth. However, the world you see about you does not really exist, it is not real. There is no lasting satisfaction or real life in that system. You have been brought thus far in your spirituality to this intent; that you might see, hear, speak and live in the real world.
What is He showing you? You cannot afford to allow your present circumstances, that appear contrary, to blur your vision… that business idea, education, investment, ministry, travel, healing of body and mind, financial freedom, family reconciliation, new job, marriage.
WHAT IS HE SHOWING YOU?
Declare All That You See. Declare (announce, predict) All. We are being challenged to use the small member that has the power of life and death, the tongue.
Words are the 2nd most powerful force in the universe, having the power to create and uncreate realities. After a thought is conceived, words provide the womb for nourishment and further development. Using the breath of life (wind/Spirit) to form words can produce life or death.
It is important to only declare what He has shown you in the visions of God. Declare all of it to the house of Israel. You are the house of Israel. Have you seen Healing, Life and Immortality? Then Declare and decree it daily to your physical self and it shall be established.
Have you seen Abundance and Prosperity? Then Declare it and decree it to your financial or business situation and it shall be established.
Have you seen a higher level of spirituality, ministry, and family reconciliation? Then Declare it and decree it daily and it shall be established.
Jesus taught us that whatsoever we say and continue to say it would happen. He said even if you speak to a literal mountain it must obey and be removed. Once a person has received visions of God, it is very hard not to speak forth. It becomes like fire shut up in the bones and it’s difficult to remain quiet. Why are you so quiet?
Declare all that God is showing by revelation, vision, or prophesy, you have been brought to the kingdom for this purpose.
Ezekiel was being prepared to receive the powerful revelation of the mystical Temple Experience. Nine chapters are devoted to describing in detail the exactness of this experience. This is the full realization of humanity becoming the habitation of All that God is. The Creator fully expressed in every aspect of His being throughout all of His creation is the ultimate goal. This is also called the Restoration of All thing.
Ezekiel’s visions of God took place on the 10th day of the 1st month on the Hebrew Calendar, which is Yom Kippur, the day of Atonement. Allow this to be your experience daily. Ask for the gift of Repentance (Changing your mind for the better) and the gift of Forgiveness. Release all the accounts that you have carried regarding others, hold no grudges, no resentment, no anger.
Refuse the mental rehearsals of incidence that brought pain. Reject the thoughts that say no one values you. Release all those that you have bound with vengeful thoughts. The hand of the Lord is upon you to bring you to your Promised Land. You must get out of your body (physical limitations) to experience it. Excess baggage will slow you down and keep you earth bound. Enjoy your journey.
THE HEAVENS DECLARE
The Sun is now in the Zodiac Sign house of Capricornus. This is the large group of stars that take on the form of a Fish being transformed into a Goat. He is partially out of the water and partially on the land.
The goat is the sacrificial animal used on the Day of Atonement. While writing this letter I just realized the parallel. Ezekiel’s visions of God on the 10th day of the first month on the Hebrew Calendar-the goat being sacrificed and this is the 10th day of the first month on our Gregorian Calendar with the Sun in Capricorn the Fish-Goat.
Capricornus speaks mainly of the power of Transformation and the struggles in the process. One of the main stars in this constellation means, “cut off”.
On one level this speaks of Jesus, the Messiah that was cut off as Daniel accurately prophesied. The Transformation of this Fish to become a Goat speaks of Jesus’ death, burial and resurrection in a glorified body. (The fish-goat coming out of the water to the land). This also speaks of Jesus having all authority.
The Tribe of Naphtali was assigned to this Zodiac Sign house. Naphtali means wrestling to overcome. This speaks of the internal struggles and challenges to achieve that which belongs to you. As the Sun is in Capricornus you are encouraged to use the powers of Transformation to overcome all that appears in the lower realms. Be transformed by the renewing of your mind, and help others in their transformation. Out of the things that appear as death, let life come forth.
You are encouraged to walk in resurrection power-the false life of illusions have been cut off. Give yourself permission to make sacrifices, you will be rewarded. Give yourself permission to even be joyfully used as a scapegoat when necessary, truth always prevails.
Those born between December 22 and January 19 are of the tribe of Naphtali. You may order your TribeOscope, 67 minutes of prophetic insight about your life. With spiritual and scientific background music to promote healing and wholeness throughout your being. Find out what God really says about you.
