Foreword

This vision portrays God fellowshipping with His family and showing them things to come, for we find Jeannette in heaven mingling with people who love the Lord. The demeanor of the chapel attendees witnessed to Jeannette that they had an intense longing to meet with their Lord.

Christ our Beloved Lord and Teacher
Their faces manifested excitement as their Teacher arrived and their behavior exuded enthusiasm, all of which evidenced a yearning eagerness to know what their beloved Teacher had to say.

Because Jeannette said that the Man who walked to the front of the chapel with great assurance and sat down to teach was Jewish looking, we can surmise that this Man was the Redeemer of Israel [Isaiah 49:7]. How do we know that? From the components of the vision. As we shall see, the chapel scene in heaven clearly denotes the Presence of the God of Israel, and in the second component, the scene at the table on earth speaks to the Redeemer’s disciples receiving empowerment through an impartation of Christ’s anointing oil. The purpose of the oil is to enable them to fearlessly carry out the will of God in the coming days of turmoil, and that in a nutshell is what this dream vision is about.

 

Scene-The Chapel

Jeannette had been reading about acquiring a closer walk with God just before going to sleep. The fact that people sometimes dream about what they have been doing or thinking the day or so before a vivid dream is not significant. For this is a common phenomenon. But in this case, our visionary had a dream visitation that actually took her into the Presence of God. Because His Presence and strength is needed when extraordinary things are about to transpire, our Lord has sent this message to encourage believers to stay the course, to press in and even labor to better know Him and His endtime agenda so that none of us fall after the same example of unbelief as the children in the wilderness [Hebrews 4:11].

The Current State Of The Church

Is the church ready for an imminent return of Jesus? From the landscape of my perspective, I think not. Many of the Lord’s messages on this website indicate that a great percentage of the church is complacent regarding evangelism and is wiling away her time self-absorbed in pleasures and insignificant fruitless activities. Worse than that, a recent Newsweek/Beliefnet poll reveals that 68% of evangelical Christians believe that Jesus is not the only way to Heaven. They said that good people of other faiths could get into heaven through another god. The spokesperson for Beliefnet was amazed at the results that showed a shocking 91% of Catholics agreed with the question that Jesus was not the only way to God.

The poll indicates that a large percentage of Christians do not take the Bible seriously nor believe it is inerrant, for Jesus clearly states in John 14:6 that He …is the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father but by me. The writer of the book of Hebrews explains ‘The Way’ unto the Father. Because God is holy and cannot fellowship with sin, His Presence under the Old Covenant was by atoning blood sacrifices of animals that merely covered up sin. Animals could not pay a penalty that men deserve. Therefore, God sent His very own Son into the world, made of a woman for the purpose of acquiring a flesh and blood body capable of dying so that through death His Son could remit or blot out sin completely, not just cover it up.

  Colossians 2:14
  14 Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross;

The result was that Jesus, as a man, obediently paid the penalty of death incurred by Adam’s disobedience and became a substitutionary sacrifice for anyone who will receive His gracious punishment for sin as his or her own payment.

   
 
Jesus is the Way

His death satisfied the righteous God’s judgment upon Adam’s treasonous disobedience and opened ‘The Way’ into the Father’s Presence again for fellowship with Him.

  Hebrews 10:19-20
  19 Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus,
  20 By a new and living WAY, which he hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, (by) his flesh;
   
 

‘Stay-a-ways’ On The Increase

Statistics in another recent study reported that approximately13 million people claiming to be born again admitted that they had not attended a church service in the last six months. Furthermore, people who claim no church affiliation in the United States has doubled in the last decade signifying an alarming rise in religious apathy in spite of the rise in the calamitous signs pointing to the end of the age.

It has also been reported that 95% of the people of Europe are unchurched. Thousands of European church edifices have been turned into domiciles for secular events, material pursuits, and converted Muslim mosques. The fact that Europeans did not want God’s name mentioned in their newly proposed European Union Constitution speaks to the mindset of our global neighbors. Could snubbing God be why economies in Europe show a high incidence of unemployment and less than robust economic health?

On the home front, most people know that the Supreme Court of the United States has recently ruled that there cannot be a display of God’s moral law – the Ten Commandments – on state owned property if it appears like an endorsement of Judaea/Christian beliefs. This virtually assures that there will not be any newly displayed plaques of the Ten Commandments on state property. The landmark decision has placed the USA in great peril because it unwelcomes, if not defames, the laws of the God that made her great. The Bible is clear that God responds to people as they behave towards Him. For instance, the Bible says to draw nigh to God and He will draw nigh to you [James 4:8]. (T)hem that honor me I will honor, and they that despise me shall be (despised) [1 Samuel 2:30].

  This Supreme Court decision continues the erosion of removing God’s Presence and Wisdom from the activities of this nation. When God is removed, our protective covering is gone and our source of prosperity compromised. Have we not witnessed what happens when we scorn God as unworthy of His guidance in the recent twin hurricane disasters of Katrina and Rita? Having explained that God responds in like kind, could it be that the two eyes of the double hurricanes reflected the US Supreme Court’s having stuck its fingers in God’s two eyes, the two tablets of Moses on which the Ten Commandments were written by the finger of God? The decision of the United States Supreme Court implies that we no longer want God’s laws to guide us. Could this have incurred the Heavenly Supreme Court’s decision to allow her client nation of 200+ years to go it alone against the ravages of satanic activity? What a travesty! I will honor them that honor me!

Two Tablets of Moses

 

Bear in mind that God does not destroy, satan does. God does not send hurricanes, satan does. The devil is the destroyer, not God [John 10:10]. Between the two hurricanes of Katrina and Rita, the backbone of our nation has been seriously hurt. The mouth of the Mississippi River, which is the arterial channel of economic goods to the central part of America, and our offshore oil and gas production took tremendous blows by the evil one. It will be years before the offshore platforms will be brought back into full production again. And what about next year? Will there be a recurrence of similar damage by hurricanes even before we recover from losses this year and last year’s Hurricane Ivan?
