Dream 400 – We must continue to fully trust in God

Received on Sunday, April 12, 2020

Communion

Dear Father,

I had a sub-dream on Saturday night, April 11, 2020, that I waited until today to write down.  I wanted to jot this sub-dream down before I started today’s dream…

Sub-dream 1 “A Massive Smoldering Furnace” begins…

I was looking at a massive furnace.  It was old and rusted from use.  In it were so many ashes that the fire could no longer burn properly.  The furnace was smoldering instead.  The smell from this was making me ill.  I called out to see if anyone was here…

Me:  “Who is here?  Whose are these in here?”

Voice of God, the Father:  “Be not anxious for your life, Erin.  Consider the lilies of the field.  I created these in great beauty and splendor.  I also created the grass of the field.  They have rest here.  So then, Erin, be not anxious.  Seek first My Kingdom and My righteousness.  Worry not for tomorrow.”

I then saw a newly printed newspaper.  The headline on the front page read ‘Easter Sunday!’.  The paper landed in the smoldering furnace and was immediately consumed in the flames.  It was gone.  I started to cry.  I then heard God’s Voice again…

God:  “Erin, this is not the good news you are looking for.  I am here with you.  I Am the I Am, understand?”

Sub-dream 1 over…

Thank You!  Thank You for everything.  Jesus is my everything.  Thank You that Jesus rose.  Yes, He has risen!  Without this, we would have no promise or hope.  I had a song on my heart this morning.  It is one that I remembered during my troubles.  Our church choir sang this in Portland OR almost twenty years ago.  I remember the words and the songs buildup.  I remembered everyone standing up and cheering at one point.

I looked up the lyrics and started to cry as I read them.  The song is ‘In Christ Alone (my hope is found)’.  What a great song.  What an awesome thing You have done for us in Jesus.  He is our Light in this dark world.  You sent Him first for the Jewish people.  Many hearts did not receive Him though.  They were looking for a King, not a baby, and certainly not a man from Nazareth.

To the Jews, He was a man of no significance, a carpenter, the son of a carpenter.  They missed the great signs and miracles there before them.  God was with us.  He still is!  However, You declared that the whole world, Jews and Gentiles, would be grafted into the branches of the redeemed.

  • In Isaiah 11:10: “And in that day, there shall be a Root of Jesse, Who shall stand as a Banner to the people; for the Gentiles shall seek Him, and His resting place shall be glorious.”
  • In Isaiah 42:1: “Behold!  My Servant Whom I uphold, My Elect One in Whom My Soul delights; I have put My Spirit upon Him; He will bring forth justice to the Gentiles.”
  • In Isaiah 49:6: “He says:  ‘It is too light a thing that You should be My Servant to raise up the tribes of Jacob and to bring back the preserved of Israel; I will make You as a light for the nations, that My salvation may reach to the end of the Earth.’”
  • In Matthew 15:21: “Then Jesus went out from there and departed to the region of Tyre and Sidon.”
  • Revelation 22:16 calls Jesus the Root and Offspring of David, a Banner or Ensign to be lifted up in the sight of an army or to rally people together.
  • John 12:32 states that Jesus’ Crucifixion was a Banner for the world to see.
  • Isaiah 60:13 states that His Resting Place will be Glorious.
  • Taken together, this means that, when the Gentiles seek Him, the Messiah of the world, they will look to Him for salvation and protection.
  • Jesus is our Resting Place because He has risen and is with His people, all of us.

Thank You, Father, for You sent Jesus for all of us.  We learned from Isaiah that Jesus, the Gentile Savior, would be Jewish and that the Messiah would come from Jesse’s line.  It speaks of ‘Root’.  The word Root is Shoresh in Hebrew.  A Root can be a sprout that springs from a dead tree.  Father, thank You for Jesus!

My dream last night greatly disturbed me.  It made me so sad for these days to come.  I pray for the many who will have to witness the full force of all of this.  As quickly as changes have come to the world, as this You have allowed so that hearts would turn to You, so I also know that all of this is possible and can come quickly…

Sub-dream 2 “Creatures from the land, air and sea are removed” begins…

People were enjoying a normal sunny day.  People were once again able to gather for events.  I was walking down the street with my husband.  I believe we were now Transformed as I was able to look up without pain.  Suddenly and without warning, we heard a loud horn, loud like a siren.  Several very large angels then descended upon the area.  People were running and screaming.  The angels then began to gather the birds of the air in pairs.  I turned to my husband.

Me:  “Look how beautiful the Trumpeter Swans are.”

We looked up and the swans together had stunning plumage.  Their feathers were thick and perfect, with a slight rose tinge.  I then saw many other incredible specimens of birds.  The angels were removing them.  I turned to my husband again.

Me:  “Oh no, all of the birds of the air are gone!”

I then heard another horn.  It was also as loud as a siren.  The angels descended again, but this time they gathered all of the animals in pairs.  We knew some of these animals personally.  They seemed to be smiling and waving goodbye to us.  People were mourning the sudden loss of their animals.  We tried to comfort a couple who just had their dog go missing.

Me:  “Do not worry, for God has taken them to a safe place.  This way, they will not have to endure what is coming.  He has done this as all of them are innocent.”

The crying and wailing from what just happened was horrible.  People did not see the angels as we had.  While I am not sure if this was post-Rapture, I should note that I did not see any children below the age of accountability.  Perhaps they had already been taken.  Again, I am not 100% sure.

I then heard yet another horn as loud as a siren.  This time, the angels descended and turned the many waters bitter.  I somehow knew that the fish had already been removed.  I turned back to my husband.

Me:  “Well, we have a lot to do now.  We had better go.”

Before we did, the Lord moved us to a better vantage point.  We could see the landscape below with enhanced clarity.  We could hear people screaming…

People:  In sheer terror.  “God’s Wrath has come.  He has shaken the Earth.  He has sent hailstones and fire.  He has taken our living creatures from the land, sea and air.  He has poisoned our waters.”

What happened next astounded my husband and me.  Instead of repenting to God and turning from evil, they quickly increased in wickedness.  These delusional people did not realize that there was still much more to come.

Sub-dream 2 over…

Father, I would not call this a particularly enjoyable Easter Sunday dream.  I had hoped to focus more on Your Great Glory and Your miracles of the Resurrection events.  This was unexpected.  Father, I am scared.  While You have repeatedly told me to not be afraid, I am.  People like us are looking to You for hope.  Right now, the doom and gloom are everywhere.

Jesus:  “Erin, come up.”

I was on the overlook in God’s Garden in Heaven.  This area is so beautiful that nothing compares to it on Earth.  As I stood there, I saw the River of Life winding through the pastures, fields and forests.  I saw animals of every kind.  However, there was no longer the predator vs. prey aspect.  I could see tributaries all flowing into the beautiful river.  Fish were jumping out of the water as if to fly.

Tears streamed down my cheeks when I saw a group of beautiful horses running.  They were not wild though…they were free.  There were some ponies there as well.  I then looked toward the sun as it rose on the horizon.  The sky was like a 1,000 Rembrandts.  Since this was God’s personal canvas, nothing can describe what I was seeing.

I suddenly heard a melody come from the north.  Every kind of bird was sweeping across the sky.  They were led by eagles and angels.  They were singing in perfect harmony.  It was incredible.  My jaw must have dropped open.  I was so excited that I started to jump up and down.  I could now see a flock of Trumpeter Swans.  This was the greatest migration ever seen on Earth, but was business as usual here in Heaven.

Me:  “Father, You have storehouses of snow like in Job 38:22.  Here in Heaven, You have glorified the birds of the air, some even from our yards on Earth.  You have glorified the animals.  They are perfect here.  There are no fears of predators here.  The fish in the River of Life thrive.  The rainbow trout and salmon have colors beyond description.  The water is so pure here.  While there is salt here, the water is not saltwater.  Everything here is pure and perfect.”

I looked over to my right and there was a beautiful blossoming tree.  The blossoms seemed to be moving.  They were.  Suddenly, thousands of butterflies came off of the branches and started to fly in perfect patterns.  The tree that remained was not bare.  Far from it.  It still had thousands of blossoms on it.  It took my breath away.  I sat down and began to weep, even as I write.

Me:  “God, there is no one like You.  You are intricate, thoughtful, faithful, never ending, mighty and strong.  When I am here, it truly makes me realize just how big You are.  It is sometimes easy to forget this on Earth.  Nothing is possible without You.  I fail at trying to capture by pen all that You are.  You are everything to me.  You are our Creator!”

I felt something next to me.  I opened my eyes and there was my dog, Zoey.  I was obviously shocked!  She was now healed and strong again.  She wanted me to pick her up.  I gathered her up into my arms.

Me:  “I am glad you are here, ‘Z’!”

She gently licked my face.  She was so happy.  Something behind me distracted her.  I turned around to see what it was and there was Uriel.  I put Zoey down.

Uriel:  Smiling.  “Erin, God requests your presence.”

He was in full armor standing next to his horse.  The horse bent down so that I could ride on its back.  Uriel walked beside the horse.  Zoey wasn’t sure if she was welcome, so she sat down and watched us walk away.  Uriel noticed…

Uriel:  “Come on, Zoey.  It is okay.  You can walk along too.”  She then followed us.

Me:  “Why am I seeing Zoey here?  She is at home downstairs right now.”

Uriel:  “You needed to know that God cares for His Lambs and for His lambs of Lambs.  Erin, it has not been written that animals do not mean anything to God.  If God knows when a sparrow falls and cares, then why would He not care about that which you care about and He created?  This would be against His character of holiness.  Do not listen to those who dishearten.

“These people love to speak for God on pulpits and proclaim this or that without knowledge.  So many lies are said of God, but this one hurts little ones.  Your animals are here…or will be…all of them.  They will see you one day soon.  They run and nap in the sun here.  They splash in the rivers and chase butterflies here.  They have no fear.  They spend time preparing at your Home for the day you return.”

Me:  “Uriel, this is a mysterious statement.”

Uriel:  “Your Home is Heaven, Erin.”

We arrived at God’s Door.  Uriel helped me off of his beautiful horse.  There was a saddle on the horse that was so comfortable that it was as if it was specifically built for me.  I somehow also knew that it automatically adjusted for Uriel when he mounted his horse.  I looked over for Zoey and there she was under God’s willow tree by the lake with fountains.  She was on her back with her paws in the air.  She was lying in the sun and sleeping.  She looked so peaceful that I began to cry.

Uriel:  “Come, Erin, God requests your presence.  Zoey will be fine.”

Uriel put salve in my eyes and brought me through the door into His presence.  I could hear the incredible Heavenly choir of angels singing ‘Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord God Almighty, Who was and is and is to come.  You are worthy, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for You created all things and, by Your Will, they were created and have their being.’

Uriel brought me in a little further than the time before.  The cells in my body soon had me dropping to my knees.  I realized that He wanted the angels to sing this chorus as a reminder that He is the Creator of all things!  I immediately began to worship Him.  I was so thankful for Him that He would care about me so much that even things like Zoey would be on His mind.

Me:  “Praise You, Father over all things.  There is no one like You.  I love You so much.  I pray that I have done You justice as a scribe with my pen.  I pray that I have done everything in accordance with Your Will.  As You know, I don’t always like what I am called to write.  However, I know that this is Your Story and I am just me.  Still, You remind me that I am a daughter of the King.”

God:  “I love you, Erin, not because you are perfect in the sight of men, but because you are perfect in My sight.  You are like My scribe, Jabez.  As a young boy, he was ridiculed because of his name.  He then turned to Me with his whole heart one day and said ‘Oh Father, that You would instead bless me and keep me from pain.’  I then answered his prayers.  I blessed him from the tribe of Judah.

“He was an artisan and did what was right in My eyes.  He was highly esteemed.  While you cried out in the times of your pain, you did not ask to be free from your trials.  You instead asked for a heart of gold and to be like your Savior.  This came at a cost similar to the price paid by those who asked to sit next to My Son in Heaven.  Refinement like this comes with great pain and suffering at the hands of your enemy and enemies.”

Me:  “But, Father, I did ask You to remove my pain and I still do.”

God:  “Yes, but only when it began to be very painful.  It is finished, Erin.  I have brought you through your troubles and you walk with Your King.  You have been blessed like Jabez.  You came from humble beginnings and the world should know you not.  Still, here you are with Me.  You are a scribe even though you have no formal skills in this area.  How is this possible?  It is not unless I have declared this work in you.

“Now, I have heard your prayers and agree with your petitions.  I am not finished with you and I am not calling you Home.  I have a plan in place and this is written, yet few have found it.  What can a man discover unless it is I who lead him to what is hidden?  You are also now concerned over the events of the world.  Erin, this was important.  I brought you through severe troubles and punishing blows, yet you are here.  So, Erin, was I heartless?”

Me:  “No, Father.  Knowing all that I know now, it had to happen this way.  I had always hoped for something miraculous, something so great, that the mouths of my enemies would be shut in awe.  This never happened though.  Still, You are the One with the Final Word.  Everything You do is perfect.  I must stay focused on You and You will take care of us.  When I look back, I want to vomit.  It is so painful, so unbelievable.  I am thankful for evidence, testimony and witnesses.”

God:  “Erin, I can feel your pain.  I have not forgotten this.  If I said you are like Jabez, then I will bless you like I did him.  I know your sacrifices.  I know your longings.  They are good, not lofty.  However, I have something much greater planned than even you can conceive.  This is not an ending for you, but only a new beginning.  I told you that the day you were looking for was not Easter.  I gave you the dream of the newspaper.  It was not subtle.”

Me:  “I am sorry, Father, but I was really hoping that today would be ‘The Day’ for our healing, our Transformation.”

God:  “Erin, I am with you.  My plans are good.  As you were tested and here you are, so too is the world being tested.  I will take care of those who press into Me.  I will not forsake them.  I am with them even in the minute details.  I will provide for them.  While I know that you are discouraged, do not be.  I am about to do something in your days you would not believe even if you were told.”

Me:  Smiling. “Do You mean all of the stuff that is happening right now in the world?”

God:  Laughing.  “Yes, this is true, but better.”

Me:  “Thank You, Father.”  Uriel came to bring me out the door.  I turned back and waved to God.  “I love You!”  I could see a motion of light from His arm in the direction of His Throne.

God:  “I love You too.”

When I came outside, I immediately noticed that Zoey was no longer there.

Me:  “Where is Zoey?”

Uriel:  Smiling.  “She is now downstairs.”

Me:  “Does she know that she was here?  Did she dream it?”

Uriel:  “Would this not be a good thing?  Be encouraged, Erin, for God is with you.  He knows you are waiting on Him.  He has prepared your heart for good things.  Things will become difficult in the world.  God has referenced you as a scribe.  The Lord has said this of you…

“And He said to them, ‘Therefore every scribe who has been trained for the Kingdom of Heaven is like a master of a house, who brings out of his treasure what is new and what is old.’ (Matthew 13:52).

“Erin, God has given you the desires of your heart to be like the Lord.  You are a branch, a shoot, from the Root of God, understand?  Your branch bears good fruit.  Do not be discouraged when time continues and you grow weary or doubtful if God has forgotten you.  He has not forgotten you.  You are ever before Him.  Your name is scribed on the palm of His hand.

“Now, rejoice, as God is about to bless you with more than you even prayed for you and those He has called.  I must go.  Take heart and remember that He has overcome the world.”

Me:  “Uriel, I am sick each day and I am becoming sicker.  Could you…?  Oh, never mind.  God knows me.  If He is with me, then He will have compassion on me.  If I am like a lamb, He could heal His lamb as the Good Shepherd.  Since He says He will heal me, then He will.  I just pray it comes soon.  Something has become much worse.  I need a miracle.  Many of us need a miracle.”

Uriel:  “I will give God this message.”  He gave me a smile that told me that we both knew that God already knew what I had just spoken.  “Remember that He always loves you and always cares about you.  I must go now.”

He turned with his horse and was gone in an instant.
