Upon waking on Saturday morning I remembered part of my dream.

I was standing in a long line at what appeared to be McDonald’s. There were 3 lines and all were crowded. No one was moving. Everyone was still. Then a man started to walk through. In the dream, he had the outward appearance of the rap artist Eminem. As he was moving through the crowd, an extremely minimal amount of people started moving. I was standing in the middle line. There was a line to my left and a line to my right. One lady that was in the line to my left went up to the cash register, left money on the register, and walked out peacefully. A lady that was standing in my line ahead of me stepped off to the left. She was standing in the aisle between the left line and the center line. The man that was moving through the crowd, all of a sudden, came through with a lawnmower. The lady that stepped out of line placed a red, medium-sized purse directly at her feet. The man was trying to cut it down with the lawnmower. She was trying to protect it. That’s all I remember at this time.

“Youth & Wonder”: Colored Pencils: Alicia R. Shipe (ARS)

*(of God) existing apart from and not subject to the limitations of the material universe.

Yet again, The LORD God Almighty is telling Me to make (it) plain for this writing. His message is simple. Who do people say that I AM?

My entire existence thus far is a series of events regarding others not knowing who I am and Me allowing myself to Be told who I am. This IS ungodly in the way I have allowed it to manifest. I no longer doubt His creativity nor My purpose of existence. Whenever any entity/Being gets to this point, the enemy becomes extremely frightened. The Word of God is a living organism. This means as We. Changed from glory to glory, We have new experiences with, through, by, for, from, and of The Word of God. We do not have the means or the access to go into certain places without permission or an invitation in the natural. So why is it that we feel and believe we can do so in the spiritual?

There are things operating in this plain out of order and out of proper function. Seek ye FIRST The Kingdom Of GOD AND His Righteousness THEN ALL these things shall be added unto you. What things? Everything, people. This is not arrogance yet it is at the same time. More than this, it is confidence in and by The Spirit of The Living God. Here it is made plain.

Jesus saw Himself in the scriptures and let those whom tried to derail Him know exactly what was up throughout His Life and Ministry. He conquered and overcame the grave and the world. I am working on humility which isn’t what we have been made to believe. How do I know this? The Spirit of The Living God lives in Me that’s how.

I went through hell following the bloody yet snow covered footsteps of Jesus. He died for My Freedom so I chose and decided that I owed Him My absolute Life. I laid it down for His Life, by His Blood, for His Name’s Sake. Now that I’m here people have no idea what is happening. I completely understand this. No Fear except of the Lord is what is happening.

Due to the rush of Heaven from The Kingdom of God that has entered and been released in My Godly Temple, the fear of Man ran amuck a little bit and I was put away for psychological evaluation for 7 days. Not worried about how this makes anyone feel. It is Truth and it’s my truth. Yes, I am diagnosed with bipolar disorder but I refuse man’s manipulated medications for My God-Given Mind. It has a place and this is My personal choice based on My personal experiences, knowledge, and understanding. I believe in God’s medicine which He placed in the earth for us for all different types of healing. Unbelief is a hindrance just as doubt and fear are. His people suffer due to lack of knowledge. More importantly, due to lack of vision. If you can’t see Me then you have 0 authority to speak into My Spirit. Simple.

If one can’t believe AND can’t see then one becomes lost in the frigid cold and darkness of the wilderness. I’ve been there far too many times in My eternal existence. God is now strengthening My Hands through ALL His Ways. HE IS Life, Truth, AND THE Way. We best come to understand what this means before He manifests The Sons of Zebedee before our eyes. Just in case, this is the part where God is NOT bluffing. He is longsuffering and I am learning patience. My Big Brother, Jesus The Anointed One and The Righteous One, has already gone before Me. He abides in Me, I in He, and We in the Father through The Spirit of The Living God. Our Father Reigns in HIS Kingdom but Createz through the Heavenly Realm. He is a jealous God. Better still, HE IS Jealousy. He is jealous for My Sake. Sure He’s jealous for others also. That’s His business. My business is to know how selfish He IS for Me and how selfish He has allowed Me to Be.

Big Bro saw Himself in the Scriptures and He is showing Me Myself in Scripture. From Me to the enemy: No more. My Destiny is sealed and I have sought out My place and MY Seat in the Heavenlies. I know where I sit and I know where I stand. Doubt is not welcome over Me. Death is a part of Me as My Savior has already conquered it. As HE leads and reigns, so go I by the grace and existence of God Almighty. HE is exalted through and IN ALL of Me. The LORD of Hosts is His Name. Now, so AM I. SELAH!

Isaiah 59:21 – “As for Me,” says the Lord, “this is My covenant with them: My Spirit who is upon you, and My words which I have put in your mouth, shall not depart from your mouth, nor from the mouth of your descendants, nor from the mouth of your descendants’ descendants,” says the Lord, “from this time and forevermore.”
