Received on Tuesday, April 12, 2022


Dear Father,

Thank You for another day!  Thank You for signs, wonders and miracles yesterday, today and tomorrow and soon to be forever.  Father, You are my portion and cup forever.  Only You can fill my cup with water.  I thirst for You.  Bless You.  My heart grieves today.  Something is off.

Me:  “Lord, my Spirit is in great unrest.  Something is wrong.  My dream last night…

Sub-Dream 1 “Prepare the Perfume, Prepare the Oil (continued in Sub-Dream 2)” begins…

While this dream was about oil and perfume, I can’t remember the details.  However, when I woke up from this dream this morning, the words ‘Prepare the Perfume, Prepare the Oil’ was on my heart.

Sub-Dream 1 over…

“Oh Lord, while I don’t remember much about this dream, I know I enjoyed it.  Please show me more so that I can remember more.  Lord, my heart aches.”

He once again spoke to me while I sat in my devotional chair.  His Voice was very clear.

Jesus:  “I am here and I am with you.  I am the God who sees.  I see.  I do not forget all that has come to pass.  I do not dismiss evil.  I am the God who judges with even scales of justice.”

Me:  “Lord, I am scared.  Without a Great Move from You, the hearts of so many will soon grow cold in greater measure.”

Jesus:  “Erin, I am the God of miracles, signs and wonders.  There are no accidents and no random occurrences as I am over all things.  I called you in great measure.  On February 23, 2000, I sent My witnesses (Enoch and Elijah) to state and observe your condition.  They then instructed you in the way you should go.  At the time, one saw you as incapable (Elijah) and the other saw you as capable (Enoch).

“Well, what is impossible for man is possible through God.  I sent confirmation to you in the Rose Garden (in the fall of 2000).  I wiped your tears.  I gave you a great gift and sign of My favor with the conception of your daughter (in early 2001).

“Within three years of your daughter’s birth, I prepared you to leave the area I had kept you and move to the place I prepared for you.  I then sent more miracles.  You always were watching for Me.  In all things, you remembered Me.  Because of this, I chose you.  You are special in My sight.”

Me:  “I love You, Lord.”

Jesus:  “The enemy will not prevail.  All of My promises are true.  As things were in the beginning, so too will they be again.  Your Spirit is stirred as you wrestle for what was lost.  I promise you that I will grant you the desires of your heart.  I will rebuild your broken walls.  I love you, Erin.”

Me:  “You are everything to me, Lord.”

Jesus:  “I have heard your prayers.  I know the desires of your heart.  I have answered your prayers.  I am with you.  Whatever you ask in My Name, I will answer.  I will give you more later concerning your dream of the perfume and oil.  For now, this vision has closed, but the fragrance remains.  This is good!”

Dear Father,

Thank You for another day!  Thank You for Your love.  Thank You for all You have done for me.  I am a sinner, plain and simple.  Perhaps my heart condition is terminal.  Will I ever do what is holy, right and true?  Here I am, Lord.  I love You with my whole heart.  Despite this, I don’t practice what is written in Your Laws.  As just one example, I have not removed all the leaven from our house.

Me:  “Lord, I am guilty.  Passover is tonight and I have only done a bare minimum.  I am struggling in this season.  I am anxious and feel burdened.  I am scared and unable to find peace.  I planned meals this week and gave very little consideration to all of the significance of Your High Holy Week.  You have been quiet.  I am so sorry for my actions.  I am so sorry for my heart issues.”

Jesus:  “Erin, come up!”

He once again spoke to me while I sat in my devotional chair.  His Voice was very clear.

Jesus:  “I am here, Erin.  I am with you.  To those who did not come from a house that practices these feasts, it is difficult to remember.  You remember Me always though.  You remember Me every day.  To Me, this is most important.  The Laws were given as traditions of remembrance and instructions were detailed so there could be no mistake of what these signify.

“However, just because a legalistic man, either Jew or Gentile, practices a ritual, this does not make their heart upright.  The heart of a man and his rituals do not save him.  Only God can save.  Understand what I have said here.  Was it written that only by observing these Laws and feasts will a man be saved?”

Me:  “No.”

Jesus:  “So, do I then look down and condemn a family with righteous hearts because they have very little and did not remove that loaf of bread from their house?  Would I do the same for the widows or the elderly?  Are they also condemned?  Neither bread with leaven nor bread without leaven can save a man, understand?”

Me:  “I am glad, Lord, because I have failed.”

Jesus:  “The bread is a symbol of the heart… My body broken for sin.  However, sin is often small at first and then it permeates throughout the dough, causing the dough to rise and be puffed up.  Then what happens?  If you were to eat it prior to the oven, you would become sick.

“After the bread has risen, or is proofed, it is placed in the fire, or the oven.  It develops a hard crust there that shelters the soft texture of the body of the bread.  It is then good to eat and a delight.  Well, why then eat the bread without leaven?  If leaven represents sin, the sin must be removed from the bread.  There is no need for the bread to rise as there is no proofing prior to the heat.  The bread is flat and not puffed up, understand?

“While it still tastes wonderful, it is free of the yeast of the Pharisees.  You share in My body that is free of sin and you partake in the wine that signifies My blood sacrifice.  However, remember what else occurred… I washed the feet of those who followed after Me.  Their feet would carry the Good News as witnesses of My love.”

Me:  “Lord, this would make me uncomfortable too.  My King, my Lord, my God… washing our dirty feet and wiping them dry… what a thing You did for us!”

Jesus:  “Well, you now understand the significance of the Upper Room.  It was the final hour of preparation before the sacrifice of the Lamb.  The Lamb’s blood was required to be shed.  We had communion first and then I washed their feet for the journey that was to come.”

Me:  “Lord, why did You wash their feet at the closing of the dinner rather than upon their arrival?  If You had done this upon their arrival, their feet would have been clean for dinner.  In John 13:4, You rose from supper and then prepared to wash their feet.”

Jesus:  “Ah, a hidden gem.  This is a mystery hidden in plain sight.”

Me:  “Lord, what does this mean?”

Jesus:  “It takes the glory of God to conceal a matter and the honor of kings… or sparrows… to search this out.  There could be an entire series of books written just on the events over this three-day period.  Understand that, as the Lamb of God hung on the Cross, so too was it the practice for the lambs in the Temple to be hung up and their forelegs outstretched.

Note:  This practice of stretching out the lamb for the sacrifice is quite hard to find documented on the internet.  I had to search for some time and even then it was on the 8th page of my ‘Google Search’.

“There was a multitude of pilgrims in Jerusalem at the time for the festival.  This festival means man’s appointed time with God.  This festival in particular was an appointed time of the first born unlike any other.  There is even more.  As you mentioned, I rose from the supper table and gathered the basin and the pitcher of water.

“However, I then removed My outer garments and swaddled a cloth to dry their feet.  So too is a lamb swaddled and checked for blemish.  There were many more signs and wonders that happened during this time… yes, even more so than these.”

Me:  “I now know what the word ‘wonder’ means.  Lord, it means You leave us in wonder over what various current, past and future events mean.  I ‘wonder’ constantly!”

Jesus:  “I gave you a dream several nights ago about perfume and oil that I said I would address at a later time.  Now is the time.”

Me:  “Yes.  This dream happened on Monday night or Tuesday morning…

Sub-Dream 2 “Prepare the Perfume, Prepare the Oil (Sub-Dream 1 Revisited)” begins…

I was shopping for the perfect perfume bottle.  It had to be special as it wasn’t for me.  I looked at a particular one that was beautiful.  While it looked like a white iridescent pearl, I believe it was glass.  It was beautiful.  The stopper was engraved.  The stopper also had a ruby colored stone and was overlaid with gold.  As it was a gift, I wanted it to be perfect.  I then went to a place that made fragrant oils.

Sub-Dream 2 over…

“I then woke up.  Lord, what was this about?”

Jesus:  “Who was this bottle and oil for?”

Me:  “I think it was for You, Lord.  While I think it was a gift for You, I am not certain.”

Jesus:  “Your gifts are wonderful.  Erin, I will accept these with a smile.  However, this dream was instead about something else.  While you were preparing a gift, it was not just any gift.”

Me:  “Lord, I searched about Nard or Spikenard and it was used to either anoint Your head or Your feet.  While Mark 14:3 says Your head, John 12:3 says Your feet.  It was also in the Song of Songs.”

Jesus:  “It is also used to symbolize something you are not thinking of…

  • Fragrant oil is used to symbolize the movement of a shepherd to a king, like David did.
  • Fragrant oil is also used to symbolize one called into greater service.
  • It can also be like that of a Bride or a Groom preparing to be married.
  • It can also be to prepare the dead for burial.”

Me:  “I really like the first three of the four of these reasons.  As for the last one about burial, I hope this is not the case.”

Jesus:  “Think of it like this.  You were once one way, but now you have been risen to a new way.  You will not be buried.  You will instead be chosen for greater service.”

Me:  “Why was I shopping for my own vessel of fragrant oil?”

Jesus:  “Brides often choose what best represents them.  They are then remembered by their fragrance after they leave the room.  A King can also choose His Fragrance, a Fragrance pleasing to Him, the Groom.”

Me:  “Did Mary anoint Your head or Your feet?”

Jesus:  “One or the other or both… it does not matter as there are no accidents… as it is written.  What is of note is the anger this created.  Mary was poor and used expensive perfume oil to appear to others as anointing Me as King.  This would have angered the legalists, who would then say ‘By whose authority can she anoint the Savior, the Son of God, for service?  Who is she?  Who does she think she is?’

“Then there is the matter of Mary being female.  Was she even fit to wash the King’s feet with such fragrant oil?  By what authority could such a woman say ‘I am worthy to wash the feet of God and wipe them dry with my own hair’?  It was shocking to those whose hearts were jealous or angry.  The one who betrayed Me was the rebuker, the accuser, but also the one who was condemned.  So too will the liar be condemned.

“Now, I want you instead to remember the Word I gave you long ago and see that this is good.”

Me:  “You are putting Psalm 45 on my heart.  I guess this is not a burial preparation Word, but instead it is joyful.  Lord, my husband and I were at a salvage store on Wednesday.  They had a few hundred fancy bridal gowns on sale for only $50 each.  Upon closer inspection, I could see they had gone through a horrible event.  We were guessing a tornado.  The gowns were dirty.  Both of us remarked that it seemed like a sign.  It was such a sight to see that many bridal gowns not in a bridal shop.”

Jesus:  “Erin, you are a Bride.  You have been through many earthly storms.  Your clothing, your garments here, are dingy, stained and weathered.  However, I make all things new.”  I began to weep.  “Erin, why are you crying?”

Me:  “I am tired.  I am old.  My body is useless.  It is difficult to imagine me as a beautiful and fragrant Bride.  If I were a lamb, I would be rejected as blemished.  It is hard to believe You could love me as Your Bride.  I love You, Lord.  I pray that You will find me worthy.”

Jesus:  “I do, Erin.  I find you perfect.  The Bride I have chosen is perfect.  Your heart is good.  I also find your house to be good… your sons and your daughters.  Though you worry, I have called them.  Read what your difficult son wrote and see if I did not call him to do so.”

Note from my ‘difficult son’:  Mom, I just wanted to thank you for all of the generous things you have done for me this last year.  I owe you so much, but have no way to pay you back.  I am such a lucky kid to have someone like you as my mom.  We’ve been through so much and there’s still more to come.  You’re still around and kicking and it better stay that way because I have no idea what I’d do without you.  You mean the world to me and I love you very much!

Me:  “Lord, this made me so happy.  While I know he loves me, I didn’t think he loved me that much.  It is hard for those with Autism to express themselves.  I was in shock.”

Jesus:  “Did I not tell you that I would bring your sons back to you (Isaiah 49).  This meant too that one day they would be healed and returned anew.  You will then say ‘are these mine?’  Erin, this time is here.  I haven’t forgotten you.  I will repay you back a thousand-fold more than what was stolen from you.

“You will then say ‘Lord, I have no need for all this.  Where did this come from?’  I will then say ‘This is My recompense I bring with Me and this is for you.  So, in this you can rejoice in and be glad.’  Erin, My promises are true.  See, I bring gifts of great news to you, Erin.  Now, rejoice, as I find My Bride to be worthy.  Now, Erin, is My Bride’s heart ready?”

Me:  “It is ready, Lord.”

Jesus:  “This is good!”
