Dream 329 – Jesus and our vessels are now being signed
Received on Wednesday, April 17, 2019
Thank You for another day! Thank You for Your love, mercy and grace. Please forgive me, Father, for overextending myself with activity from Friday to Sunday. I failed to rest as You told me to several times. I kept going on my own strength and did not recognize the sabbath day of rest. As a result, I am now sick with the flu.
Well, it really began on Sunday. Today is the first day that I have been without deep pain in my lungs, so thank You. I believe it was so many praying for me that healed me. While I am still exhausted and weak, Father, thank You for letting up on the illness. It hit so hard and was quite humbling. You gave me a dream one week ago…
Sub-dream 1 “Burned out church” description begins…
I was in a burned-out church that was in a one level mid-century style. The structure had been destroyed by the fire and only the walls and foundation remained. Two sides of the structure were made of brick or flagstone and the other two sides were made of metal. I was walking through the charred remains when I noticed someone had broken into the church. While I was not sure if I was there physically or in spirit, I was sure that this person did not know that I was there.
As I got closer, I noticed that this person was a woman. She was pillaging items at the altar. She had collected a communion tray, some candlesticks and other items. Not one of these items were things that edified God. I looked around and noticed that there was not one cross and not even a single reference to Jesus. The items this woman was stealing had absolutely no value. As I continued to look around, I determined that the church was too badly damaged to ever be rebuilt.
Sub-dream 1 description over…
When I woke up from this dream, I was still deeply disturbed by this. As I prayed to the Lord about what it all meant, He put a vision into my head. While I am not sure if it was two capital I’s or two number 1s, it was definitely two stick-like characters. I found this vision so unusual that I spent the rest of the day looking around for two objects standing side-by-side. The song ‘Crushing Snakes’ by Crowder then came into my head. I suddenly realized that the lyrics to this song are what we are looking for now…
“We`re not afraid, terrors of night, arrows that fly by day. Ten thousand may fall, but we will remain. We`re not afraid, a promise of God can never be torn away, walking on hands of angels, crushing snakes, safe under the shadow of His wings. Our fortress and our strength, our fortress, we`re taking back our freedom, our battle has been won. We have been liberated, back from the dead we`ve come, we`re taking back our freedom, our battle has been won.
We have been liberated, back from the dead we`ve come, we`re not afraid, a promise of God can never be torn away. Walking on hands of angels, crushing snakes, safe under the shadow of His wings, our fortress and our strength, our fortress. We`re taking back our freedom, our battle has been won, we have been liberated, back from the dead we`ve come.
Do you see Him, King of Heaven, Champion of all creation? Eyes of fire, voice of thunder. tearing through the sky in wonder, dressed in light, we see Him coming, on a horse that`s white like lightning. Do you see Him?

Do you see Him, King of Heaven, Champion of all creation? Eyes of fire, voice of thunder, tearing through the sky in wonder (racing through the sky), dressed in light, we see Him coming (breaking through the thunder), on a horse that`s white like lightning. Do you see Him? Do you see Him?
We`re taking back our freedom, our battle has been won, we have been liberated, back from the dead we`ve come. We`re taking back our freedom, our battle has been won, we have been liberated, back from the dead we`ve come. Back from the dead we`ve come, back from the dead we`ve come, we`ve come, we`ve come, we`ve come, we`ve come!”
Later on in the week, on Friday, April 12, 2019, a series of amazing events occurred that fulfilled a prophecy that the Lord had given to me about my husband personally. This prophecy was given to us a few months back and pinpointed Nisan 7, which is April 12th. While I had forgotten this prophecy, my husband had not. Without me knowing it, he had quite a fleece to God on the fulfillment of this prophecy. How this prophecy was fulfilled came in such an unexpected way, we both are still smiling about it.
The story starts with me dropping our girls off at their school. I was driving home listening to the Christian radio station when they announced that they were selling tickets to a concert by an up and coming Christian band. I decided that I would take the girls, along with one of my daughter’s friend, to this concert. This was last minute notice as the concert was to be that same night. I went to the radio station selling the tickets expecting it to already be sold out.
When I pulled into the parking lot, the Lord told me to give a gift to the radio station of a certain dollar amount. When I enquired about this of Him, He repeated the specific amount again and told me to donate no more and no less. Okay, even though I thought the tickets would be sold out, I was now to stop and give a gift as well, so I did. I went in and told the receptionist that I wanted four tickets to that night’s concert and that I also wanted to give them a donation.
To my surprise, not only were there four tickets available, but the manager, the disc jockey and the accountant all came out to greet me and thank me for my gift. They then gave me two free tickets to that night’s concert as a token of their appreciation. While I did not want to accept this gift, they were quite persistent and I said okay. However, due to the gift I had made, the receptionist needed our information. As I was giving her our information, she looked up and said, “Wait, I know your husband. I used to work with your husband before I came over here to work.”
She then proceeded to tell me all about the trouble the company was enduring and that his former company had lost a specific number of staff, an entire division that had worked there for years. One of the employees that left was a 22-year veteran. To our amazement, the number of people that left matched perfectly with the number that the Lord foretold would leave in a prophecy given to us personally months in advance.
The amazing part is that this information was provided to us on the exact date that the Lord foretold we would ‘receive a report from a spy on Nisan 7’. Nisan 7 is also the date that Joshua sent out spies to Jericho. The information my husband was provided with was directly from someone that formerly worked ‘in Jericho’. Since my husband knew her to be trustworthy, he knew that her report was accurate.
Had the Lord not have me donate that day, I would not have given my name and we would never have received the ‘spy report’. As I said before, I had long forgotten about this ‘spy report on Nisan 7’ prophecy, but my husband had secretly been praying to receive this on that very date. That this happened in the manner that it happened truly once again shows that God’s ways are truly so much higher than ours.
Even though I had been a touch worried about making this relatively large donation given my husband’s current ‘unemployment status’, the Lord then replenished this within three hours and again in an unexpected way. He wasn’t finished making this day special though. While we were told to show up to the concert at 5pm, we should have been told to arrive at 7pm. This miscommunication actually ended up working well for a number of reasons.
As we were now there two hours early, the girls were asked if they wanted to help the band set up for the concert. All three were excited to do so and gave a resounding yes. In return, they upgraded all four of our tickets so that we now had front row center seats. I felt guilty about getting such a prestigious upgrade, but they were so persistent that I just had to say yes.
As we were waiting for the concert to start, I was not too happy to see a sworn enemy of mine walk in to the auditorium. While I have never done anything to this woman, she had decided to stop having my husband and his kids as friends simply because he married me. It was awkward as she was there to sell merchandise. However, when the band, the radio station people and the disk jockeys all came up to us to talk as we had donated and helped with the set up, it was as if we were being treated as ‘royalty’.
I glanced over at this woman and she was as furious looking as anyone I have ever seen. I could actually feel her curses coming towards me. After the concert, we went over to her table as we wanted to purchase some of their merchandise. I said hi to her and she then pretended to not know who I was at first. Because of the way the Lord had set this up (that is, us looking like royalty), I was no longer awkward, but she certainly was. Nobody can say that the Lord doesn’t have a sense of humor, right?
While the concert was fun, it was also exhausting and our Saturday also had activities. I also made plans for Sunday and this turned out to be a big mistake. I was exhausted and, by Sunday afternoon, I was sore and achy. I soon realized it was the flu. I decided to lie in bed and watch the Masters Tournament. My husband told me not to worry about supper or anything that day and he and the kids looked after me and themselves. Little did I know that this Tournament would give me such great joy.
To make a long story short, I cried when Tiger Woods won the Masters Tournament. It was 11 years since his last victory (there is that II again). His victory was one of my biggest fleeces as I had prayed that his eventual victory would be a type of redemption for all of us who have suffered under curses and slander. I became injured right as Tiger Woods began to rise in status as a golfer. It was such a fast ascent!
I watched him and followed his victories. He was so gifted and so amazing to watch. Then so many things fell apart for him at once. There were the affairs and the injuries. So much was coming in against him and so fast that he fell out of contention. He was no longer the talented clean-cut golfer. He was no longer the role model. I even remember the pastor of our church using him and Anakin from Star Wars as an analogy of Christians having so much promise then losing it all.
This service was also 11 years ago and I remember praying for Tiger Woods to be redeemed. I prayed that God would call out to him and let him see a victory once again. I prayed that he would wear the Green Jacket for winning the Masters once again. I never stopped praying for him, even as he fell out of the top 500 rated golfers. I remember being so upset when I heard people talk about him…”He will never…”, “He is finished…”, “There is no hope”, and on and on.
I would then pray to You, Father, to “Please shut the mouths of those who curse. Please vindicate us soon. Bless Tiger, not in a material way, but by bringing him publicly out of his trouble and restore him. Restore him like he used to be right before you come for us. Please do this as I long to see it!” I remember You then replied to me and said, “I have him, Erin. I will shut the mouths of old lions.”
Well, when I saw Tiger win on Sunday night, it was a fulfillment of the Lord’s promises to me…but also a type of fleece. As my husband and children will attest, I wept, “Praise, Jesus, as Tiger Woods just won the Masters again. After all the shame, I saw him have the Green Jacket placed on him, just as I had prayed for. Now I am complete!” While I know it is a personal thing, it was something I had hoped to see before everything in the world fell apart.
Something else happened this morning when I was driving the girls to school. As we listened to the radio, the ‘Crushing Snakes’ song came on again. They both said, “Mom, this song is about us and what is soon to come!” I smiled and dropped them off, praying for their protection before they left the car. I later received a text from my older daughter with a picture of what she had wrote on the classroom’s chalkboard before class was rung in. It was from the song…
“Do you see Him, King of Heaven, Champion of all Creation? Eyes of fire, voice of thunder, tearing through the sky in wonder, dressed in light. We see Him coming, on a horse that’s white like lightning. Do you see Him?”
Hopefully she does not get reprimanded for doing this. Even though they attend a Christian school, you just never know in this day and age of secularism. Just writing about what she wrote brought tears to my eyes. Oh Father, there is no greater God than You in all of the Universe. You are our Creator, our Father and our Friend. Oh Father, how I long for the day when You rise up an Army and do all that You have said You would.
In Isaiah 53, You sent Jesus, our Tender Shoot, and He was trampled on. So many of us know what it is like to be trampled on, cursed at, lied to, falsely accused of and humiliated by the enemy of God. Rise up, Father, rise up and come as a Mighty Warrior and King. Vindicate us, Father. Restore us to what You intended for us to be. We can then say, “It is God Who has done this. Turn away from your wickedness and repent because the Kingdom of our Lord is upon you!”
Father, the world needs you, but they do not see it. Father, You have told me it is the time of the great fall from heights. Since You told me this, there has been the clock face falling from the clock tower, but there has also been a massive amount of people falling from high places. Some were accidents, others were crimes, some were pushed, others were thrown and still others slipped.
There are two II’s in the word “Fall”. It seems this is related. On “11”/29/2018, the clock fell from the tower at Purdue University. Since then, there have been people falling and even children being thrown. It just seems so extreme right now. You have told me that we are now in the 11th hour, so, Lord, please show us what we are to do.
Jesus: “Erin, come up.”
I was laying in a soft blanket of grass under a blossoming tree. The air was fragrant and I could hear a beautiful song from some little songbirds. I was in God’s massive Garden. It is so beautiful and lush. There is nothing like it on Earth. In the distance, I could hear the sound of a waterfall. I sat up and quickly jumped to my feet. I felt strong and fully alive.
My arms were lean and so were my legs. I went to feel my stomach and there again was a lean body part. I could breathe easily. Tears of joy streamed down my cheeks over how healthy I am here in Heaven. I began to run. I was soon leaping from one boulder to the next boulder. I made my way supernaturally and had no fear of falling.
I arrived at the river. Even though I was right next to a massive waterfall, I was not in any fear here. While I felt that the Lord was here somewhere, I still could not see Him.
Me: Loudly. “Lord, where are You?”
Jesus: “I am here, Erin!”
I could hear His voice coming from downstream. I leapt up a large boulder so I could look down the river. To my utter amazement, I saw Jesus with thousands of angels filling Vessels with Living Water. I became so excited! The Lord waved and motioned for me to come closer. I didn’t have to be told twice. I leapt from boulder to boulder and was soon right on the area next to His angels.
Jesus: “Come over here, Erin.”
He motioned for me to come nearer to Him. He pointed to the banks of the River of Life. I became breathless and in awe as, right there, lining the banks of the River, were the beautiful Vessels He had made representing us. My mouth dropped open in amazement as I watched Him say a blessing over each Vessel before signing, or marking, the top of each of them.
His smile told me that He knew that I was curious as to why the tops were being signed, not the bottoms as is the usual case. I then watched as His hand individually wrote His Name, the Name of the Lord, in a visible way on the top of each one of these Vessels. ‘Yes!’, I exclaimed to myself, ‘the Creator of the Universe was taking the time to sign each one of our Vessels!’ I could not believe my eyes and I literally pinched myself to make sure I was really seeing this. I was!
Me: “Oh Lord, these Vessels are so clearly supernaturally beautiful, surely everyone will know they came from You. However, why are You signing the top of each Vessel instead of the bottom?”
Jesus: “Erin, while I rode in on the donkey before, I will now come on a horse. Why?”
Me: I paused to think about this for a while. “Is it because You came the first time, not as a king, but instead like ‘a man with no majesty’? Hmm, I am not really sure why.”
Jesus: “Because the world has had 2000 years of ‘university’ to study about Me, I will now come as a King on a white steed. I will not come at the rear or on the bottom, but rather as the lead on the head. Therefore, those I have marked will be marked clearly as there is no shame in believing Who I am.”
Me: “Oh, I see. There is clarity now!”
Jesus: “Well, there always was clarity, but many chose to live in the fog.”
I watched as He then marked each Vessel, then filled it with Living Water. The assigned angels would then take the Vessel, jump on a horse with wings and fly up into the sky. This was not done in a chaotic fashion, but rather as a joyful celebration.
Me: “The angels seem so happy and so do You, Lord. It is so great to see You like this!”
Jesus: Looking up at me and smiling. “Well, Erin, it has been a long time coming. This marks a great time to come…a time and times like no other. My angel army has had to stand down quite often. It is a difficult thing for them to witness all the things done opposite to the Kingdom of Heaven and righteousness and have to stand down.”
Me: “Wait…do You mean that even the angels are excited about this too?”
Jesus: “Yes, Erin. The battle has been long and many blasphemies have been spoken against God and His Kingdom. Now, this marks the beginning and I am clearly at the head of these.” He pointed to the Vessels.
Me: “Where are the angels going with the Vessels after they have been sealed and filled?”
Jesus: Smiling and laughing. “Surely you know by now?”
Me: Smiling. “It takes the glory of God to conceal a matter and the honor of kings to search it out…or, should I say, a sparrow?”
Jesus laughed and splashed me with some of the water from the River of Life.
Jesus: Smiling. “Come, Erin, and drink.”
Just then, He marked a beautiful iridescent Vessel with etchings. He then put the Vessel into the water, filled it and placed it to my lips. I drank and…
I was suddenly taken out of the dream! I knew that this was on purpose. I cried for some time as I had hoped to know what it felt like…to know…what would happen next. I then felt the Lord’s presence fill my devotional room. He spoke to me and I wrote down what He said…
God: “Erin, My churches may burn and crumble as My favor is not upon the structure. Instead, My church is in the hearts of those who accept My Son. One day, all things I created on Earth will be burned. As I promised Noah, I will not flood the Earth again. Then, from the fire, I will purify the land of all uncleanliness and start anew. The land will be much better than before and there I will be with My people.
“However, Erin, My church has become a den of iniquity, a place of defilement, whereby the opposite of the fruits dwell within it. Oh Erin, how I long to dwell in the hearts of men; not in the ark, not in the tent, not in the tabernacle, not in the pews or at the altar, but in the tabernacle of the heart. Those who love Me with their whole heart, I have made My priests in the sanctuary of My Holy Temple.
“Erin, your heart is like a burning ember which does not burn out day or night. Your heart is the lamp. It is more valuable to Me than any structure built by man. Therefore, I am here to let you know that I delight in you and that I will not ‘pass over’ you. Your whole life has been a series of ‘pass-overs’, but I am here to let you know that I chose you and I love you.
“I have not forgotten you and My promises are true. Now, you have been marked and your name is written on the palm of My hand. Now, rejoice, because I say to the one who was ‘not loved’, you are loved. I say to one who was ‘a slave’, now you are free. I saw to the one who was ‘rejected’, I chose you. Rejoice, Erin, for I have found your heart worthy.”
After He said this, I knew that my visit was over for today. The Holy Spirit then immediately placed several Scriptures on my heart. This is just as written in God’s Word, the whole chapters – 1 John 3, Psalm 11 and Psalm 91.
