The Pinnacle

Journal Entry: 2/8/11 – Dream: The Pinnacle

Mountain in HimalayasRecently in a dream I was removed from where I worked and taken on a journey to a location I did not know. A large truck-like vehicle was before me and I found a seat in the back of the vehicle as three other men joined me on the journey. Once we were all seated, the vehicle began to move along the path before us. I did not recognize the individual driving the vehicle, he just faced forward, never spoke or turned his head from the road ahead.

I felt anxious because I didn’t know where I was being taken or what was going happen to me when I arrived. I didn’t have a hard hat or safety glasses and wondered if I would get reprimanded for arriving without them. The three men traveling along with me seemed to share the same anxiety that I was experiencing, we all sat in silence wondering, waiting…

The driver kept looking forward never speaking to us as he focused on the destination. Miles and miles went by and then the road began to narrow just like the bow of a ship comes to a point. The road was bordered with cut stones to guide the traveler to the center. My breath left me in excitement as I saw the very point where the two sides of the road came together in a point, the Pinnacle.

I jumped out of the vehicle and ran to the pinnacle (def. a pointed extremity), it was in a very high place overlooking the world. Suspended, directly in front of the pinnacle, was what appeared to be a reflection of Heaven framed in billowy white clouds. In awe of the beauty of this place, I slowly turned around surveying the splendor of the world below. I felt just like a mountain climber, who had successfully ascended the summit of Everest taking in the panoramic view for as long as I could; it was so beautiful to be in this place. In some ways I experienced the joy of what Peter felt when Jesus took the three disciple up on the mount of transfiguration.  “Peter said to Jesus, “Lord, it is good for us to be here.” Mat 17:4

The other three men joined me at the Pinnacle. They wrapped their arms together and wanted me to take their picture. I wanted to video this place but all I had was the cell phone camera. The anxiety we had experienced earlier on the journey had been replaced with exuberance and awe of the wonder of this place.  Then the dream ended as quickly as it had begun, I awoke so refreshed and my heart was filled with encouragement.

 -Journal End –

My reflections:

The philosopher Nietzsche wrote, “For happiness, how little suffices for happiness! No matter how my walk may appear to the casual observer or to the harshest critic, it is ultimately my journey to walk and not anyone else’s. There is nothing more important than walking in the joy of the Lord in a real, alive and vibrant relationship with the Master.

When we’re found of the Lord we enter into an exclusive relationship with the Master. It is extremely exclusive as two lovers engaged waiting for the wedding day. He sends us gifts, love letters and whispers in our ear from time to time as He jealously watches over us. No devil can snatch us away.

This is the point and purpose of life; to live before our God in open consciousness, looking, waiting for His words to us and yielding to His will. Submission is everything! It calms our minds and truly puts Him in charge of our lives. When we reach this place, we enter into the arena of His perfect will and perfect journey towards the center thereof. He will guide us along the journey which He has set before we were ever created.

Prior to the dream, I was in a place of gloom due to circumstances beyond my control. In the dream the Lord assured me that the things, which He has promised to me over the years, will come to pass. I believe He showed me this dream to encourage me because of the currently delay which I find myself in right now.  I have learned that not all delays are due my disobedience, failures or short comings. A believer may also experience spiritual delays due to their obedience. In some cases, God is working on others to get them in alignment to His will so He may use them to aid us in our journey.  If you’re experiencing this, pray God will show you the cause of your journey’s delay and if not do a lot of praying in the Spirit. When you find your journey in an extended delay don’t stop petitioning the Heavens until God announces to you that the delay is over. He will eventually!

  • The Challenges Ahead

    Prophecy – 2/21/2009

    Bro. Bill

     

    USAThe challenges ahead are great for this country (USA) and the means of the past will not work in the future. All things will become more difficult as time passes on. It will be futile to devise your plans to work around all your problems for they are all intertwined and knit together so when you move to correct one problem you create another.

    Leave your plight to Me and trust that I have the ability to sustain those who call out to My name, even in this late hour. I will hear from heaven and will save all who call upon the Lord, for darkness grows upon the earth and time becomes a shallow pool. I will bring a refreshing wind upon your face and wipe away your tears in this hour of destiny. Give your life to me and trust that I Am and you will see the salvation of the Lord amidst the cloud of darkness and despair.

    Oh troubled ones, come and rest your weary heads on My shoulder and I will give you rest. Am I not the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob who has been blessed by Me. Are you not a member of this covenant? Indeed your are so take solace in your plight and rejoice in Me for I am the Lord, God of all, all who call upon Me.

    Your Father

    Scripture ref.

     

    Mat. 8:11 “I say to you that many will come from east and west, and recline {at the table} with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven;

    Mat. 22:32 ‘I AM THE GOD OF ABRAHAM, AND THE GOD OF ISAAC, AND THE GOD OF JACOB‘? He is not the God of the dead but of the living.”

    Acts 3:25 “It is you who are the sons of the prophets and of the covenant which God made with your fathers, saying to Abraham, ‘AND IN YOUR SEED ALL THE FAMILIES OF THE EARTH SHALL BE BLESSED.’

    Heb. 8:6 But now He has obtained a more excellent ministry, by as much as He is also the mediator of a better covenant, which has been enacted on better promises.

     Heb. 12:24-25  and to Jesus, the mediator of a new covenant, and to the sprinkled blood, which speaks better than {the blood} of Abel. See to it that you do not refuse Him who is speaking. For if those did not escape when they refused him who warned {them} on earth, much less {will} we {escape} who turn away from Him who {warns} from heaven.



  • Release My Word

    It was during the night some years past now but I still remember it like it was yesterday. I found myself sitting in a chair in heaven, which faced a large picture window. Through the window I could look down upon the earth as it slowly rotated in the big expanse of space.

     Then I heard Jesus speaking from directly behind me say, “There’s the problem, here’s My word!” I didn’t turn around but only focused on looking at the earth trying to see the problem He saw but it just appeared to be the same revolving earth as before He spoke.

    window-heavenThen Jesus let loose with His word and it was glorious. Everything in my spirit and ever fiber of my being was excited by Him speaking for truth. He spoke and spoke and then He stopped. I immediately jumped up out of the chair and ran over to the window and said, “And I release that into the earth!” No one told me to do that I just was so filled up with His word that I had to release it or explode.

     No sooner had I sat back down in the chair I heard Him say, “There’s the problem, here’s My word!” Once again my spirit and body were saturated with the glorious power of the Jesus speaking the word.

    “In the beginning was the word and the word was with God, and the word was God.” John 1. He spoke again as my entire being was shaking in the power of His word then stopped and as before I jumped up out of the chair and released it into the earth.

     This same process continued all of that night and then when I woke up my wife asked me if I had any dreams that night and I replied that it wasn’t a dream at all but I was in the spirit and I was taken to a room in heaven where Jesus watches over the earth, where He trains the saints how to address problems in the world we live in.

     The next night I found myself right back in the heaven, sitting in the same chair in front of the larger picture window watching the earth spin round and round. Jesus would point out problems then speak His word out loud and I would run to the window and release His word into the earth. As the first night the process lasted all night long. It was so thrilling and wonderful to hear Jesus speak forth the word. I can see why the officers that were sent to arrest Jesus returned without Him as in John 7:46 The officers answered, “Never has a man spoken the way this man speaks.”

     Now on the third night I again found myself seated in the same chair in heaven in front of the picture window that gave a perfect God eye view of the earth from His perspective. Immediately I heard Jesus begin to speak the word so powerfully as my being was caught up in the power of the Jesus who is the Word speak the Word. I started to jump up and release His words into the earth when before I could do it He stopped and said, “And I release that into the earth!”

    heaven-chair I quickly turned around for the first time to look at Him trying to understand what had just happened. Suddenly after two nights of doing this one way we’re changing now? I saw Jesus in a simple light cream colored gown walking away. Then he turned His head just enough to see me as He continued to walk away and said, “That one was for you!”

     The night ended and I woke up in my bed next to my wife answering the same question we ask every morning, “Did I have any dreams last night?” I said, “No, it wasn’t a dream, I was there with Him. He spoke His word and released into the earth for me!” Now I have to know what He spoke and released into the earth for me. When times are hard, lean even dry in the walk I always draw on this experience and say to Him, “Oh Lord that I may fulfill that which you have released in the earth for me to become!”

     I’m still in awe when I think about it. Oh saints of God what was Jesus teaching me.

     The message is simple. When we see or encounter a problem in the world we live in we’re not to say our useless words, murmur and complain or run from the problem but to find out what the word of God says concerning the situation and release it directly at the problem. We speak the word directly at the problem  as Jesus taught in Mt. 17:20 “say to the mountain.” Whatever it is that is you see wrong in your life, your relationships, your employment, your community, your nation speak the word of God over and until you see the problem removed by the power of the spoken word of God.

     “And He said to them, “Because of the littleness of your faith; for truly I say to you, if you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible to you.” Mt. 17:20

     Jesus wasn’t talking of the saints moving dirt or large rock formations but moving the impossible objects that oppose the plan and purposes of God in the earth from being accomplished as things are done in heaven.

     “Pray, then, in this way: ‘Our Father who is in heaven, Hallowed be Your name ‘Your kingdom come. Your will be done, On earth as it is in heaven. Mt. 6:9-10

    This is His will for you…to speak His word.

    New Dreams Added -Update 10-14-09

    These two dreams came to Wendy and Jodie on the same night. Pretty remarkable when you think about it. What an amazing God we have.

    Wendy’s Dream:

    brad-montagueI dreamed that the “O” was all spending time together and someone looked over and said, “LOOK!”  We all looked & there was a large Egyptian-looking tomb with steps leading up out of it.  We saw a man’s figure walking out of it.  I looked closer and said, “THAT’S BRAD!”  He was wearing khaki shorts and his green island shirt he used to wear on the cruises.  He was smiling and walking towards us.  We all stared stunned, of course.

    He walked up to me and smiled real big and said, “Hi Pook!”  I said, “HI!”  He hugged me real big.  We felt such love for each other but it was like a very special brother-sister type of love.  He looked at Chris and said, “Hey guy!  How’s it going for you two?”  Chris looked dumbfounded and said, “It’s going great!”  Brad laughed and playfully said, “That’s awesome!  I’m very happy for you!  And hey, why don’t you wipe that silly look off your face!”  We all started to laugh.  He knew we were in shock, he was just being funny…like Brad!

    I looked over at Bill and he had his phone out video taping everything.  He had started videoing the minute he saw Brad walking out of the tomb.  He said, “I want all of this documented as proof for people to see!”  I said, “Hurry everyone!  Hug him before he has to leave!  He probably can’t stay long!”  Brad said, “Actually I got a 3-day pass!  I get to stay and visit for 3 days.”  I said, “Really?!  You can do that?!”  He laughed and said, “Yes I can.  I missed all of you and requested it, so here I am.”  We were all so excited.  He took turns spending time with each individual member of the “O”, talking privately with Mom, with Jas, with Jo, with Bill.  He played with Mollee and told her how big she had gotten & how beautiful she was.

    He looked around and said, “Where’s Caleb?”  I said, “OH!  He’s taking a nap inside!  C’mon let’s surprise him!”  Brad smiled so big, excited to see him.  We walked into a dark room and I said, “Wait out here!”  I went in & told Caleb, “Hey Bud, wake up!  I have someone that wants to see you.”  Caleb sat up and rubbed his eyes.  Brad walked in and smiled SO big.  He stretched out his arms and said, “TA-DA!!!!”  Then sat down by Caleb on the bed.  Caleb looked at him in disbelief, then he started to cry and wrapped his arms around Brad in a big hug.  They hugged for a long time.

    Later that night, I told Chris, “Do you think he’s really still here?!”  We went to check and Brad was laying on the floor, asleep, on a pallet.  I touched him and said, “Brad…are you asleep?”  He blinked and said, “Yeah what’s up?”  I said, “I was just making sure you were still here..and not…gone again.”  He smiled & said, “No Pook…I’m here for 2 more days.”

    A few days later we were at church after Brad had gone back to Heaven.  I was taking Bill’s phone around to person after person showing them the video saying, “LOOK!  Heaven is SO real!  Your loved ones are ALIVE!  You will see them again!”

    This was a wonderful, LIFE-LIKE dream.  It was SO good to see Brad!

    Jodie’s Dream 10-14-09

    dream journalI cant tell you how this has blessed me. I had been thinking about him alot lately and talking to God about how much I missed him. Night before last I dreamed I was walking along side a river. It was Spring time and I was taking real deep breaths of air because the smell of flowers was so strong. Birds were chirping. I could feel the grass under my bare feet. When I stopped to look at the water I heard grass crunching like someone walking up behind me. I turned around and it was Brad. He was walking kinda slow and was grinning from ear to ear…lol….I can still see it. I said in excitment,”Brad! Oh my Gosh!” I began to cry and as he approached me he put his hand up in a manor to say “hold on a minute”…and he said, “Now whats that all about, Sis???” I said, “Brad I’ve just missed you so much..we all have! I cant believe Im standing here talking to you…I wish everyone was here!” He put his hand on my arm and said,”Sis, I have so much love…I feel so much love…like I’ve never felt before.” I smiled and said,”I am so happy for you Brad.” He looked down a minute as if he heard something and then looked right up into my eyes. He said,”Jo….that’s what its about…Love. That’s what it was all about….Love….”
    ….Then I woke up….I knew right away what “it” was. The whole process of why he went to Heaven and didnt stay. It was so awesome and I have such peace about the whole thing. I didnt know I needed it, but I have it now! lol….

    JODIE’S DREAM ABOUT BRAD

     brad beachI was walking into a house I had never been in before but was somehow familiar…As soon as I opened the front door and stepped inside I heard Brad laugh and it startled me! I started toward the door I thought I heard him in and he walked passed the door way with a platter in his hands. As he walked by he was smiling and talking to someone sitting at a table. I wanted to go in, but couldn’t. I thought inside,”But I want to talk to him! I want him to know I’m here!” He looked up from the table toward me and said, “In time, but not right now.” He turned and kept talking to whoever he was visiting with…

    Bill’s Dream About Brad

    I walked up to a door that was shut. I knew Brad was in there. I pushed open the door a slight bit and peeked in. I saw Brad lying on the left side of the room in a hospital bed with his head and feet pointed away from us.  Someone came and placed a mattress that just fit the doorway opening so we couldn’t go in or see much. I did see a bright light that was coming in through an east facing window.  It shone on Brad brightly.  We tried to see him two or three more times but he was gone.

    Wendy’s Dream About Brad

     Early this morning I dreamed that my phone rang.  I looked at it and it said “Pook calling”.  (Which was Brad’s name in my phone).  I stared at it in disbelief & started trembling.  I answered & said “Hello?”  Brad said, “Hey Baby, it’s me!”  I was completely stunned & said “Wow.  Hi.”  He said, “Listen, I only have a minute but I wanted to tell you that it’s glorious here!!  No words could ever describe it!”  I was still in such shock.  I said, “Really?!”  He said, “Oh yes…and Baby, it’s true.  When you get here, there is a schooling.  Some people get here and they think they know truth, but they don’t.”  Then he said with such excitement, “But, when I got here.. I KNEW!  I knew truth!  What I knew WAS TRUE!  Don’t ever wonder, Babe, because it’s TRUE!”  I said, “How did you call me?!”  He laughed & said, “I have no idea.  They just said you had sent me a couple of text messages and that it would be good for you to hear from me.”  (Twice at moments I missed Brad so much I sent him a text just to see his name in my inbox)  I said, “I love you so much & I miss you!”  He said, “I love you too…and I’ll see you soon!  I have to go now.”  I said, “Ok.”  Then he said, “OH WAIT!”  He chuckled like he was tickled about something & said, “Tell Mom…” and he started singing “The sun’ll come out tomorrow…”  As he sang it faded out until I couldn’t hear him anymore.

  • God Is Waiting For You to Speak His Word

    A few years ago while asleep, I found my spirit man sitting in a room in heaven. Directly in front of me was a large window and I could see the earth down below. I sensed Jesus was standing to my immediate right and slightly behind me. earth

    I heard Jesus say, “See the problem” as I was directed to look upon the earth, He then said, “This is my word.” He began to declare His word over the problem. When Jesus would say, “See the problem” I didn’t see any problem when I looked out the window at the earth below. It soon became apparent I was in a training class and the instructor was Jesus Christ Himself.

    As He spoke His words, everything in my spirit man was filled with the most powerful anointing I’d ever felt, and as soon as He finished speaking, without hesitation, I stood up, pointed at the earth and shouted, “And I release that into the earth!” Then I sat back down and the sequence was repeated all night long as Jesus would point out problems in the earth. He would declare His word over it and I would stand up and release it into the earth.

    When I awoke the next morning, my wife asked me if I had experienced any dreams during the night as we do most mornings and I told her that it wasn’t a dream but I was sitting in a room in heaven with Jesus in some sort of heavenly school with Jesus.

    The next night I found my spirit man back in heaven sitting in the same chair I had sat in the night before, I was again gazing out the window at the earth. Then I heard Him say, “See the problem” as my attention was focused on the earth below. He then said, “This is my word.” Again when He spoke His word, everything in my spirit man was filled with the most powerful anointing I’d ever felt. As soon as He finished speaking, without hesitation I would stand up and point at the earth and shout, “And I release that into the earth.”

    This sequence was repeated all night just as it occurred during the first night.

    On the third night I was once again sitting in the same chair, looking out the window towards earth. This time Jesus began to speak and my spirit man was filled with excitement as the “Living Word” spoke. I was about to jump up out of my chair and release what He said into the earth when I heard Him say, “I release that into the earth”.

    This caught me off guard because the other two nights I had done all the releasing of His word. I turned to look back to where Jesus was and I saw Him in a cream colored robe walking away from me, and as He walked, He turned His head back towards me and said, “That one was for you.”
    That ended three nights of one the most amazing encounters with Christ I’ve ever had. About a year later, while my wife and I were sitting on the patio of a Mexican restaurant, I heard Him say, “Now you do it.” I knew He was referring to the heavenly encounter I had experienced a year prior.
    God wants us to recognize the problems in our life, family, church, city, region and world and find out what He says about it in His word and then release the word of God over situations in order to see dramatic change in the earth.

    On another occasion about a year later, I received an email from a man who worked at the same company I used to work, the email was very inspiring and I sensed the anointing of the Holy Spirit as I read it. I was very blessed by his words of faith and support and I said, “Lord, bless everyone who prays for us,” Immediately, I heard the Father say, “With what?”

    This response surprised me as what I had just said sounded holy, yet God’s response made me pause for a moment as I realized that God can’t do anything with just the word “blessed.” Yes, it sounds holy to say, and we say it all the time when someone sneezes, or as we say farewell to someone, “bless you” or “be blessed,” but it doesn’t give God anything to work with. His word teaches us that we have already been blessed and by just saying, “Bless them” or “bless you” or any variable of these words, gives God nothing to work with in order to truly bless them. “Blessed [be] the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly [places] in Christ”. Eph 1:3

    I began to form a prayer from Ephesians 1 where Paul was praying that we may receive a spirit of wisdom and revelation with understanding of God’s nature.
    Eph 1:17-19 “That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto us the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him: The eyes of our understanding being enlightened; that we may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints, And what [is] the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power,”

    He once spoke to me in His authoritative voice early one morning while I was in prayer and slowly said, “My people limit Me,”! He used the voice like you heard used in the movie Ten Commandments.
    As you can imagine I didn’t move a muscle nor utter a word, the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom and I was on a crash course in the matter. If you want to see your world change, then speak the word of God over every situation that concerns you and watch God get involved in an awesome way. The prophet Daniel was told by the angel in Daniel 9, “I have come for your words.”

    God is waiting for you to open your mouth and proclaim His word over situations! Do it today and you will see God’s mighty right arm extend in the earth and things will change and they will change in a big way.

    I pray this gives you some wheels to run on and begin to grow in the dynamic use of God’s word to become a more effective Christian in your community and in the kingdom of God.
