A few days ago – Friday night – I had a dream that I was on a tour. It was of rooms like apartments. These rooms were underground deep in the earth. They looked liked they were decorated in the 70’s  with shag carpeting and walls. The color scheme was purple/lavender and a light shade of red. The rooms all had floor model TVs with the knobs instead of being the remote controlled TVs we have today. To go to the next room you had to go down deeper in the ground. All I know is I was with others fascinated yet confused by the decor and knowing I didn’t belong there.

After the above dream (either the same night or the night after) I dreamt I was back at my high school in the gym. First, I was at the doorway of the secondary gym watching a basketball game. I had a sense that I was an authority figure or a well-known person. Then I went to the main gym. I stood at the doorway watching that game then I looked to see where I could sit. I decided to sit with the opposite team fans rather than who I was rooting for. Everyone stared at me while I took my seat. I remember I had a book bag on my back through this whole dream and I ended up with some type of cloth (blanket or jacket) and had to lay it out to sit on.

-> Don’t know what any of this means but I continue to have dreams that take place in my high school gym.

Following is another journal entry but with descriptive images which is the main way God has me see what HE chooses me to come to know.

(Visions I experienced during a time of corporate worship)

->A big diamond with a small flag on top

->Image of ‘Iwo Jima’ Statue at the Marine Corps War Memorial building  but in shadow: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marine_Corps_War_Memorial

->A sword piercing through layers (I drew a sketch of it in my journal)

->Then I saw balloons

-> I had a few visions of wings – some on angels, some on birds, and some just floating where I couldn’t see the figure with the wings

-> an uncertain vision of the 70’s and received the year 1973 – “generation dieing in the wilderness”

. . .

-> Saw seeds on my left side then through whole vision saw three horses (they were for me); a white one, a black one of fire, and a dark blue one [Bronco colors]

Tuesday night I dreamt of my Great Grandmother Roseanne Sloane. She was sitting on a porch in Winchester and I was at a house diagonal and across the street. I saw her a few times but never spoke to her. Then, while a festival was in town, I waved to her from the porch I was on then went to talk to her, hug her, and spend time with her. As others walked by, I spoke to them but didn’t want to do anything else except be with my Great Grandmother.

Thursday night I dreamt I was sitting at a lunch table outside (sunny skies) like a high school across from two other people. A man walked up to me wearing a brown raincoat (not long but medium length). I looked up and was a little stunned. I said in a questioning voice, “Jesus”? Then I immediately moved to the next seat to make room for Him to sit and join.

Some of these are self-explanatory. Some are more detailed. The reason I share these is because I know I am not the only one Whom Holy Spirit has cascaded upon in a newer way. As I work, my way, through the intimacy of The Ancient of Days, I am noticing/testing/recognizing ideas I have lost, tossed away, forgot, or been too timid/lonely to truly sort through. When someone changes (positively OR negatively) it is always a struggle/hassle/endeavor to make it to the next mark on the road. Life appears to be falling apart in ways (as before and always) but I’m still Me: fake smile, real smile, hearty laugh, weeping willows, tear stained face, and ALL. Because there IS ONLY One Me!!!

Sunday night/Monday morning, just before I woke up, I dreamt I woke up and the ground was covered with snow so school was closed. When I actually woke up, without any expectation of this happening, the ground was covered with snow and school was closed. My dream came to pass. The shocker for me at that time was not that the dream came to pass but that for once in recent memory at that time, it came to pass more than immediately and without any pre-notions from myself in any form.

Church: When will the corporate definition of Prophecy be recognized? How much longer will we deny God’s Order? There is whole new generation pushing forward with the propulsion of the angst of My Generation (The 90s from the 80s not the babies of the 90s) who respect those Who came B4 Us and those coming Up behind, for, AND With Us.

We can talk about those of old that were kicked out of the church. That makes no one feel worthy of themselves or of the benefits God Almighty bestows upon each of us in an individual manner. Life sucks. End of story. How each of us deal with it is our personal business.

Church: You’ve pushed and ignored FAR TOO LONG! I can’t and I won’t sugar coat this. Shit is coming down. We all know it and feel it. Telling a non-believer OR a believer to have hope is something that is not carrying ANY weight. Watch Holy Spirit work. How much are we paying for our attention and our children’s attention to continue to be manipulated by only God knows who? Not a revival; not this time . . . #FAM

BTW: Sorry – not SORRY/;

I stumbled upon this group a few days ago and this song seems to fit my current mind set which is why ‘Music is Life’ and ‘Dance is Love’ for me. If ya don’t know me, ya don’t know me. DO NOT try to convince me that you do. Those that do know me. . . well . . . know me. If anyone has to ask then ya just can’t because I’m guarding my heart like never before.  I have to leave it at that. Life is precious but how we live it is . . . Cold hearts and heated tempers are what’s left after.

What a week I’ve had. Last Thursday I was asked by a person on the worship team, Rachael Martin, to come in and practice the song “We Will Rise (His Glory Fills the Earth)”. The collaboration was so awesome we ended the session in spontaneous worship. Those I practiced with all had input into the song making it what, I believe, God truly wanted it to be. Those involved were myself (lyrics), Rachael Martin (keyboard), Melvin Hardy (bass), and David Jimenez (drums). We sang this song on Sunday 06/08 which was Pentecost and though it was rushed, there was a huge response to the release from the song by the Holy Spirit. 

In the past few weeks I have been under the influence of Holy Spirit in creativity. As of yesterday I have 49 art pieces and many songs that have come to me. It has been an inspirational time.

My father-in-law has made the decision to be baptized, my maternal grandmother has been going to church again, and my neighbor (so she said at the time of this original writing but our mutual neighbor was sincere, Matthew x 2). She came with us a few Sundays ago. This past weekend she said she felt this overwhelming feeling that God specifically placed her in someone’s life so she could come back to the Lord. [What I wrote is different than the thoughts I had and even to this day. I now have slightly more understanding of why Holy Spirit had and has me write the way He does which is ever evolving for His purposes and plans. I strongly believe He was showing me multiple things at once through different portals of His Time and Space. I can only write it out as it is written in the original journal due to lack of understanding. Just because understanding is gained does not mean we understand all at once. It is through intimacy with God that we grow from Glory to Glory to Glory because we ALL Fall (present tense always) short OF HIS Glory.] His situation is similar to hers in the fact that a few of his family members have been urging him to go back to church just as it happened to my neighbor.

On Monday night, 06/09, I had a warning dream. In the dream someone shaved my hair off half of my head and the rest wasn’t my dreadlocks. Then, someone was trying to put someone else’s hair on my head even while I was defiant against it. This same night, Justin had a dream he was taking care of his guinea pigs and was finishing when he heard a voice (in the dream) tell him there was one more to take care of [a tarantula]. He doesn’t like tarantulas so I believe this was another warning dream. I believe my warning dream was against a snare for having someone or something put a false identity upon me or trying to steal my true identity in Christ. I believe Justin’s dream was warning against the snare of fear.

The next day, Tuesday 06/10, a few bizarre incidents happened. Though I believe accidents happen, I think the incidents were an attempt of an attack from the enemy, especially when coupled with the advancement of The Kingdom in the past few weeks through the dreams Justing and I had the night before.

I had 2 friends over to help me with my organizing and cleaning of the house. We were almost done in the kitchen with only a few odds & ends to clear up. There were some expired Epipens and Epipen Jrs. around but I shared how I didn’t want to throw them away full of medicine. One of the ladies and myself decided to discharge the medicine into the box for it. I didn’t fully read the instructions but I know the needle side was down. What I think happened was when I jabbed the box and pulled the pen back up, it flipped and th needle ended up stuck in my right thumb (I didn’t hold it for 10 seconds). I was embarrassed only for a brief time then I started making jokes in the ambulance and in the emergency room. It was an epipen jr. so no issues with the medicine. They numbed my thumb with 5 shots (which hurt worse than the stuck needle) of novocaine and got th needle out. There was no damage to the bone and no part of the needle left inside. My friend and I couldn’t get it out because it was bent. I had and still have very slight soreness but no damage at all.

That same night, Justin was trying to get a ball from our front bush. Instead of walking down the front stairs he leaned over the railing. He fell and scraped his right arm, right leg, and hurt his right thumb. We are all OK but praying for safety over ourselves and in our home.

This night, Greg had a dream he was attacked by 5 snakes. Praying over him but need to do it more. 

Last thing: a few weeks ago, I heard the Lord tell me June 13th. I didn’t realize until later it would be a Friday the 13th. I didn’t dwell on it, I just waited. I realized today what it meant. All I knew before was something good was going to happen. Last night, I saw on my social media page that this lady is working on opening an art gallery in Alexandria with all different styles of art (classic, modern, metal, paint, jewelry, fabric, etc.). I was skeptical but felt nudged by the Holy Spirit to share some of my recent digital art with her. I dreamt of an explosion of Light (now knowing I was being re-filled). While pondering it I realized the connection with this lady and her gallery was the good thing on June 13th.

Lots going on but all only the outpouring of my desire to know My Lord more intimately [capitalization changed to reflect MY Now].

It is no secret to my family (which to me is more than immediate relatives) that I am a huge fan of Michael Jackson, Prince, and MaDonna. – Forever Duh [D’oH]/

My mother always told me their music IS prophetic (esp. Prince and Michael Jackson – I found that all music full of the artists soul is prophetic by Nature no matter what genre it may be considered. Because of my early movements through music, I AM here today. It is only by the Power of Holy Spirit that I am hearing, seeing, feeling, and understanding all that I AM. The We of My I (Self) is something I am just beginning to comprehend. It is a wild thing that goes far beyond imagination yet I continue because it is Who God THE Ultimate Creator made me to BE for such a time as this along with the rest of the remnant He has place on and in this world. We all know it’s a doozy of an oozy. [Fraggle Rock]

It would seem I am beginning to run on an automatic cycle at this moment in this season. I have to maintain myself because life is life and it can suck or be grand in the exact moment. I KNOW I’m not the only one that feels this way. As I begin to study in this new God given atmospheric institution HIS Way (along with the others Whom God HAS Chosen), the waters begin to churn in certain places and begin to settle in other places. Just as it has always been laid out in The Bible, We must come together to figure [transfiguration by the chosen/elected called masses] what this all means. There is a reason the Ark of The Covenant had to keep being moved throughout history. If We truly believe that Our Lord IS the same yesterday, today, and forever then it is only a matter of time. There are those of us that are truly trapped by the enemy of the Souls of God Almighty. This is the dilemma of Life vs. Death, Evil vs. good, time vs. forgetfulness. All of these are mere words that we place attributions upon without any true plot, plan, or understanding. If anyone has been reading my writings since the onset of this blog post, there is so much meat yet lack of understanding even through the words. I can only write what I know. Now, I can only write what I choose because knowledge is power and power has always been either coveted or feared. This is to be an Age of Peace as pre-ordained yet turned around again. There is always a betrayer [sniper] in every crowd. I myself am A multitude due to the Angelic Order Called forth by the Great Divine. That is where I must leave myself though I know and understand others are and have gone before me, are with me, and will come behind me. Also, God does not wish US to be lacking anything but my life revolves around MY Destiny [Number One Point Black Blank], ‘Capiche’. WE were more than Called to do this, WE ARE Destined AND Determined to do this as it was ordered before the beginning of Time.

I am only One of a Pair, of A FAMILY, of a Sect, of A Society, of The Times, Of an Order, of A Portion/Ratio. Someone or some ones have infiltrated God’s Original Plan. Safety 1st but only after My and Mine’s Protection. Gracias AND DeNaDa/

My son just made a statement and it got me thinking. He said, “Two swords make fire.” What I started thinking was how The Word is called the Sword. So I started contemplating a possible Spiritual message in what my son said. So far all I have is that there is The Living Word, Jesus, and The Written Word. When the Living Word dwells in Us (previously written as “you”) and The Written Word is written in Our hearts, The Fire of God comes down to burn up ALL that IS Not of HIM. ~fin 1935~

Joel 2:1-5 – Blow the trumpet in Zion, And sound an alarm in My holy mountain! Let all the inhabitants of the land tremble; For the day of the Lord is coming, For it is at hand: A day of darkness and gloominess, A day of clouds and thick darkness, Like the morning clouds spread over the mountains. A people come, great and strong, The like of whom has never been; Nor will there ever be any such after them, Even for many successive generations. A fire devours before them, And behind them a flame burns; The land is like the Garden of Eden before them, And behind them a desolate wilderness; Surely nothing shall escape them. Their appearance is like the appearance of horses; And like swift steeds, so they run. With a noise like chariots Over mountaintops they leap, Like the noise of a flaming fire that devours the stubble, Like a strong people set in battle array.

Because I am an Entertainment Geek since birth, I know on levels that the prophetic is nothing as what we collectively believe. This has been the fight since before and after any written word. Herein lays the issues we have always (and again and again and again and ’round and ’round) run into. I am called by Holy Spirit to stop rushing because My curiosity is far too exceeding than most. Ask my Momma, she knows. My curiosity, as far as I know, is only matched by few others. I can’t say that I am absolute on this but I know that every time I test a spirit within myself things and occurrences begin to happen both positively and negatively. In the past, those close to me have always told me to shut up or stop doing . . . Not this time. And that’s all I need to continue my God given destiny His Way which IS NOW MY Way (just need more information, techniques, learning, and understanding). Such is the ‘suckiness’ of LiFe. God never leaves us completely destitute. He sent Jesus to go before us to suffer for us. Before that He sent His Angel (The Angel of The Lord as stated in the Old Testament). Obviously there is much much more but those are for another time because there are some knots in the timelines of history and thought.

Part of dream remembered:

In church (Whole Word Fellowship/The Gate; Oakton, VA), worship team was singing (not Rachael or Portia but Shane was still leading):

A lady with maroon hair started singing and only a few (4) in the congregation knew the song by title. She started singing and more recognized the words to the song. The song sung in my dream was Melissa Etheridge’s “Come To My Window”. Also dreamt of going to dinner (casually) with Matt Runyans (college friend) and Justin Timberlake (I mean do I really have to explain this one-dreamy duh!) to talk strategy about something. ~fin 0700~

@2036

In that dream the title was “Deliver” but the words sung were from Melissa’s (Etheridge) song:

Come to my window
Come inside, wait by the light of the moon
Come to my window
I’ll be home soon
I’ll be home, I’ll be home, I’m coming home.

While rematching Ryan Wyatt’s message from Saturday 08/22, I received a meaning of the 6 blue birds carrying a net over a bright green field of grass. I’ve heard the number 6 is the number representing man. The color blue represents divine revelation, heavenly visitation, and/or open heavenly portals. The color green represents inexperience or immaturity (now I’ll say in some eyes because it’s a matter of perspective). Grass represents the Self. The net is self-explanatory.

Genesis 1:26 – Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.”

Genesis 1:31 – Then God saw everything that He had made, and indeed it was very good. So the evening and the morning were the sixth day.

Ecclesiastes 10:20 – Do not curse the king, even in your thought; Do not curse the rich, even in your bedroom; For a bird of the air may carry your voice, And a bird in flight may tell the matter.

Proverbs 20:27 – 30 – The spirit of a man is the lamp of the Lord, Searching all the inner depths of his heart. 28 Mercy and truth preserve the king, And by lovingkindness he upholds his throne. 29 The glory of young men is their strength, And the splendor of old men is their gray head. 30 Blows that hurt cleanse away evil, As do stripes the inner depths of the heart.

Habakkuk 1:15 – They take up all of them with a hook, They catch them in their net, And gather them in their dragnet. Therefore they rejoice and are glad.

Isaiah 40:6-7 – The voice said, “Cry out!” And he said, “What shall I cry?” “All flesh is grass, And all its loveliness is like the flower of the field. The grass withers, the flower fades, Because the breath of the Lord blows upon it; Surely the people are grass.

What does all this mean? I believe it means this:

God is pouring His Spirit out on His people as His Word says He will in the last days. He is raising leaders to go out and bring in those that are lost. I believe it will happen in a way that has never been seen before. I believe this because the colors in my vision were extremely bright. His Word is being revealed, the mysteries within, to His Leaders. His Leaders will carry the true revelations of the Word on Wings (lifted by the Holy Spirit) to the bright green grassy field (the lost) and bring them up in their nets – “I will make you fisher of men.”

This is the revelation so far. Still not sure about the 6 windows but I believe it is confirmation of the blue bird vision or a continuation (haven’t written out the blue bird vision fully by this moment in this place).

Last night while watching “Coming to Glory” by Ryan Wyatt, I had two visions. The first was a wrapped present with a bow. I didn’t do anything with it. Then I opened my eyes. When I closed them again, it was still there. I reached out to it, grabbed it, and hugged it close to my body. After that I saw a table and a pair of hands placing hot soup on the table for me to eat to nourish my body.
