This vision is a call to whomsoever will listen to wake up from the dead and press in heavenward to receive a fresh anointing from the Holy Spirit. He alone can open blind eyes, but we must be willing to offer all that we are to Him in sincere devotion and love. Jeannette revealed this when she said she offered all that she had to Jesus in her opening prayer. God then confirmed that what she said was what was necessary to receive this endtime anointing refreshment from the throne of heaven. It is the only way to revive a backslidden dead church. We have to turn away from everything that has held us back. He told her it would cost us everything implying that if we are not willing to give up everything we cherish in this world, then we would not be privileged to receive the endtime anointing from the Lord. Those who refuse to wholly dedicate themselves to the Lord will remain in a stupor with the dead church which is playing games with the world.

I submit that the user-friendly church, which is committed to growth, is based upon marketing techniques to enhance its numbers (the economic bottom line is always numbers) and could be lulling its patrons to sleep – a dead sleep. Jesus said that the characteristic which would be the waterloo of the church in the last days is deception [Matthew 24:4,24]. The only way to keep from being deceived is to know the truth. So it behooves us to keep close to the Word of God and measure everything we hear by it.

God showed in the vision what would happen when we dedicate our all to Him. He will open our graves and draw us like a magnet out of temporal death toward heavenly heights where every good and precious gift awaits us. Jeannette’s rising upward illustrates that this upward motion is instigated by God Himself because she said she was not performing the motions. This is God’s faithfulness to fulfill His part in rejuvenating us when we fully consecrate ourselves to Him.
The renewed scintillating presence of the Holy Spirit moving into Jeannette’s body signifies an escalation of spiritual power moving into us to get us ready for translation. This will anoint us for the endtime glorious departure of the church in the rapture. The church is not going out of this world a defeated crushed bride. No dear friend, Jesus said the gates of hell would not prevail against His church [Matthew 16:18], and He is coming to get His bride in a glorious condition.

I believe God is going to do some supernatural exploits with His reinvigorated glorious body not having spot or wrinkle. Many believers are arising out of their graves. How does the church become rejuvenated and free of blemishes? She becomes re-energized by being sanctified (set apart) through total commitment and washing with the water of the Word of God, i.e., Bible study [Ephesians 5:26,27]. When she gets thoroughly cleansed, the enemy cannot get in the way of her witnessing for Jesus because she will have learned the keys to Kingdom power. There are thousands who have already dedicated themselves to Jesus alone and are ready to do exploits. They know how to work the Kingdom. Don’t you want to join them? There may be only a few days of extreme glory in this sin-sick darkened world, but I believe we are going to have an unimpeded time of preaching the glorious gospel of Jesus Christ to the world before the rapture. Why do I say that?

Jesus had forty days on earth before His ascension to preach and teach His disciples last minute things concerning His Kingdom. Could that have been a profile of how much unhindered time the church is going to have to preach and teach about the resurrection and coming judgment, to warn people about things coming upon the world after the church ascends in the rapture? Ecclesiastes tells us that the thing that hath been (the type), it is that which shall be (antitype); and that which is done is that which shall be done… [1:9]. So, if Jesus had forty days of witnessing before He ascended (raptured) to heaven, will the church have forty days of witnessing also before she ascends in the rapture?

I submit that the Lord is going to turn the power up within His holy remnant of dedicated, consecrated, revitalized believers. Isaiah tells us that there shall be.

Isaiah 30:25-26

25 …rivers and streams of waters in the day of the great slaughter, when the towers fall.
26 Moreover the light of the moon shall be as the light of the sun, and the light of the sun shall be sevenfold, as the light of seven days, in the day that the Lord bindeth up the breach of his people, and healeth the stroke of their wound.

Isn’t it interesting that Isaiah talks about towers falling in the day that the Lord binds up or heals the breach or trespasses against Him by His people?. Israel’s regathering from their having been scattered among the nations is what this Scripture is referring to. It is the exact thing we have been discussing in our vision’s interpretation.

 

And what about the towers? Could this have been a veiled reference to the day the twin towers in New York City fell on 911 – September 11, 2001? We know that in the day of the prophets, any reference to towers was to the idolatrous groves set up on the highest hills for pagan worship. Sexual orgies and rites were performed there regularly. Israel’s participation in them is partly to blame for her breach with the Lord.

But I ask you, was there worship in the twin towers in the USA? They were the trade center of the world for the they were called the World Trade Center. We know that many people worship money including the poor who often lust for it, even killing a person for a ten dollar bill, and money is the bottom line for trafficking in trade.

South Tower fell in New York City on 911-September 11,2001
 

So could there be a connection? If there is, then in the day the towers fall, i.e., in our time, the light of the moon is going to be as the light of the sun – an escalation of sevenfold since it reflects the sun’s light.

In Isaiah’s prophecy, the sun signifies the Sun of Righteousness, an idiomatic title for the Lord Jesus Christ in Malachi 4:2; and the moon denotes the church because it is a reflector of the sun. Paul teaches that as we behold the glory of the Lord through Bible study, we are changed into the same image of Him from glory to glory [2 Corinthians 3:18]. Thus, the church is supposed to reflect the glory of our Lord. Therefore, is it possible that the prophecy suggests an escalation in the church’s power performance by its purified people in the day that the towers fall, in our day now that the twin towers of trade have fallen? Selah 911. Are you ready for your endtime performance? If not, I suggest that you seek God with all your heart and don’t miss out on the greatest showtime the world will ever experience – the glorious appearance of the Lord in the heavens coming for His revitalized, purified bride.

Some people teach that the translation will not be witnessed because it will be so fast. The translation itself will be fast, in the twinkling of an eye according to Paul – the time it takes for light to travel past the retina into the brain – [1 Corinthians 15:52], but what about the ascension? We’re talking about two different things here.

Someone saw the rapture of Enoch, who was a type of the church’s rapture, for whoever did see it inscribed it somewhere for Moses to report in the Torah that Enoch was taken away supernaturally. The Septuagint Greek translation of the Hebrew text of Genesis 5:24 reads: “Enoch walked with God and was not found for God has translated him and he pleased God.” So someone saw him translated. Also, the inspired book of Hebrews tells us that Enoch …was not found because God had translated him… again signifying that somebody must have seen him disappear from off the earth. Elisha saw Elijah go up [2 Kings 2:12]. Is it possible, then, that the whole world will witness believers disappearing into heaven? If so, you don’t want to miss being a participant in the grand finale curtain call of the Church Age.

Whether we have a few days or a long time to get people ready for what’s coming, the rapture, or the tribulation, the import of this vision is that the church must be revitalized from its state of mental numbness and lethargy. Revitalization is imperative because according to the vision, the church is dead along with the nation of Israel. Without an anointing by the Holy Spirit, both will enter the tribulation.

But God wants both His houses to arise from death and together become a mighty army engaging in spiritual warfare against the unseen wily enemy. There is evidence that Messianic Jews are increasing in larger numbers now than ever before. But, because they have been revived in the Church Age, they become members of Jesus’ body and will go up with the rest of the body in the rapture.

There will be scores of people in the tribulation who find out too late that they should have heeded this vision’s call to awaken out of sleep and trim their lamps [Matthew 25:1-13]. These people will have missed being a participant in the greatest earth extravaganza of all time – the spectacular elopement of the bride of Christ with King Jesus. Yet this event is merely the opening prelude to what’s ahead for the faithful who heed the high calling of God to vitalization. God is going to put on a perpetual real ‘show’ for us [Ephesians 2:7] that Hollywood with all its vast wealth and resources cannot simulate even with virtual reality. But time is short, So I suggest we all heed God’s warning, trim our lamps, and make doubly sure we are quickened and reinvigorated with Holy Spirit power. God bless you and may we meet in heaven.
