Living In This World But Not Of This World, a God Dream.
Child of God.
Today I watched my precious grandson Jayce. He is close to 5 months old, already. Time does not stand still and goes oh so fast. There are moments my 'little lion' will get fussy and is so tired, but fights sleep. Today was one of those days. I laid horizontal on the bed with Jayce. I turned on the hair dryer and gently moved it above and around him. The noise and warm air relaxed him and in minutes he was in a sweet slumber. Thank You Lord, it worked again like a charm. I propped the hair dryer on a bench next to the bed and kept it at a low hum.
I shut my eyes. Rocco, Abby's 50 pound, 15 month old puppy lay next to me and somewhere in between Benji, my ole guy 15 years plus, all of 8 pounds, was snoozing. We were all curled up side by side. I drifted to sweet sleep. I had a dream and I saw myself lying on a large, puffy, brilliant, white cloud. It looked like dozens of soft, air filled, cotton candies sprinkled with the palest, fine, diamond like crystals piled on top of each other. I could see my profile, it seemed translucent like it was etched in a fine lined, charcoal grey pencil. The cloud was outlined in what appeared to be the fairest pale blue, iridescent pearls. I was lying on my side similar to a fetal position. I looked oh so peaceful and flawless. Flawless I liked that. ( JK) Not. My body had a hue of warm mist over and around it. It was like moisturizer was being spayed from above barely touching my skin. The temperature was a perfect warm that gently swayed back and forth in a most gentle breeze. I felt like I was in a state of bliss. This sense of being and belonging was familiar territory. I hoped in my body I would not return. In the back of my mind I knew I was going to return. I did not want to come back. In the background I could hear the warm hum of the hair dryer. I opened my eyes briefly to peek at Jayce. I thought,' Oh my God He is a beautiful baby. He is perfect. I am so thankful.' I could feel the warm breath of Rocco breathing on my back. I shut my eyes. I went back into sweet slumber.
The cloud I was on moved over a dozen or so volcano's of different shapes, charcoal colors, and sizes. Each volcano looked like it had erupted before and had birth marks from the explosion trailing down the sides, leaving a ridge of frozen lava as a remembrance. Each volcano had a lid on it similar to a cookie jar.The lids all laid on their perspective volcano. Each volcano looked like it was on the verge of erruption. Some were at a slow rumble, gently swaying and stirring inside. Others seemed to roar and shake back and forth like they could blast their lid at any given second. Some were sitting in a stew like state like something was simmering inside. A hissing steam was creeping from the lids on a couple of volcano's similar to a tea pot that was blowing steam. The single stream of heat went from the lid and moved like a cylinder of clear smoke into the bright blue sky.
In my Spirit I knew each individual volcano represented an individual,community or family. Intuitively as I moved over each volcano it was like I had a familiarity with each situation or person. Although I could not put my finger on who, what or where. It seemed that each volcano needed to blow to take off the pressure to get relief. The years of build up was ready to explode and what was in the path would go down in the consuming lava. The lava represented seeds of doubt, confusion, despair and lies that grew and were festering to explode. I knew what was on the path needed to get to a safe harbor and rise up fast.
In my heart I knew that the God I serve is the only safe harbor. He is the only way to true peace. His Love never forsakes us. People, places and things do not complete us. If one places their dependence on another or something then surely disappointment will follow because nothing stays the same, no one can fix or repair us and no one is perfect except the Father Son and Holy Spirit. There is only one that makes us complete. There is one that never changes and keeps His Word. The creator of all the heavens and earth. The God that sent His only son Jesus Christ to die on the Cross for our sins so we could be made righteous with God the Father. The road is narrow. There is one path to the Living God and it is through His son Jesus. Acts 3 :19-21
I had abundance of joy on the cloud knowing the Lord cures and saves. My love for Christ In knowing I am delivered from the snares of the enemy gave me peace. Because I am in the Family of God everlasting hope and love seemed to consume my being. I was content and safe in knowing it is he Spirit of the Lord that controls the winds of life and causes the rivers to flow.
I moved along and the sight was arduous but the peace of God stayed on me, in me and around me. My Spirit Child was being kindled. I felt the urgency inside to be bold and stand for the truth. I felt a fire inside for the Lord God. I knew it was the Holy Spirit moving on me. I felt so consumed in the Love of God that I did not want to wake up. I was in the LIght. I did not want to return and see the dark in the World less I be tempted. I am a Child of Almighty God and the everlasting peace of God does not have to leave me. I can stay fixed n the Light when I keep my footage in His Living Word and keep my eyes fixed on things above.
I knew that the exhilaration I was experiencing would change because I live in the World. When Born again the Spirit of God, the Holy Spirit my teacher, guide and comforter manifests in my being. I have another sense that the World does not know. 1 John 3:1-10. Children of God know what I write. We are spiritual beings living in this tent. We live by Gods word and not what the World dictates we need to live to thrive. Living in Gods Word is another World and is a choice we make. He wants all to come to HIm and know His Love and love Him. Many deny and will be consumed by the enemy that roams the earth to devour souls. Acts 3:19-21 Many Children have one foot in and one foot out of the world and need to make a choice. Who do you serve?
I heard Jayce stir. I glanced at my watch. We had slumbered for fourty two minutes. I woke and returned from spiritual bliss. I wanted to remember each detail. I tip toed to my laptop to not to wake Jayce or the dogs. That was a trick in and of itself. I knew God was going to show me something more. I prayed that He please reveal to me. I started typing and in just moments dogs and my 'little lion' were up and refreshed. In between feeding jayce and running after Rocco because he escaped outside, I typed. I believe I wrote each detail of my journey on the cloud. LIfe was back on and I was in it. I knew in my Spirit God would reveal more when it was His time. I decided to title this writing,' Living in the World but Not of this World.'
I let this writing rest for a few days. I asked God to show me what He meant as I drifted over the volcanos. Usually I have a hard time sitting on something I write. I want to complete it and move on. My Spirit was at peace. I just knew when I could hear and recieve a word from God He would reveal more to me. Glory Be to God.
I had this spiritual experience 7 days ago. Oh Precious God is true to His Word. Ask in my name according to my will and it shall be given to you. 1 John 3:22. Christ has revealed more to me. I wrote and wrote and I am editing Part 2. So you are graciously invited back to hear the conclusion of God's message. It is for Christ I write, moved by the Sprit in me. It is not for my self that I write. Not for wages, fame or Glory. God is my source and He does provide and He keep's HIs Children under His wings. He will never leave nor forsake His Children. I am so honored and Blessed to be His Child and to have a host of brothers and sisters all over the world that share the truth and message of the Gospel and Love. 1 John 3:24
God Bless you All. It is Gods desire for all HIs creation to know and love Him. John 3:16 If you know Him not, maybe today is the day to asks Jesus Christ into your heart as your Lord and Savior. He is the pathway to Eternal LIfe with God the Father and HIs Son in the LIght. You do not want eternity in spiritual death seperated from God with the enemy and his followers, do you? Not pretty at all, forever never ends. So choose the LIght today, your peachy life will change. God mends broken legs and broken hearts.
It is for God I serve because He loved me first that I desire to write. I have an urgency to write because Jesus is going to return. The day is coming closer, not farther away. I pray that any that are lost or feel on the edge or need encouragement would be led to the truth.
In Him, Skye
