Vision of the Three Legged Donkey – End Times

Over five years ago, I was sitting in a congregation as the preacher began to speak about the second coming of Christ. The more he talked, the more excited he became telling of how the return of Christ would occur according to the pre-tribulation doctrine.

As I watched this display of the man’s egotism, the spirit within me was scratching in anguish for Holy Spirit had been showing me many things about the pre-tribulation doctrine that just weren’t correct. In anguish, I continued to listen as the preacher declared what I now know to be counterfeit doctrine, however the congregation was in full agreement with their amen’s and applause.

Vision:

three legged donkeySuddenly, a vision was set before me and I was standing in an open field. The speaker I was listening to at the time, was sitting upon a donkey to my left. The preacher and donkey proceeded to trot along in front of me heading from my left to my immediate right, in a straight line. The preacher’s jaw was fixed as he looked straight ahead and didn’t notice me standing there.

I observed that the donkey was missing his front left leg! The two of them continued to trot past me and proceeded for several more steps before the donkey fell over hitting the ground landing on his left side.  The preacher fell to the ground in the process, rolled over and got up as quick as he could.  At that time, I heard God say, “Although the teaching is in error, the man will not perish.” The vision ended.

Meaning:

The preacher riding the donkey means that he is on board with the doctrine and parading it for others to see. By the preacher’s jaw being fixed means that he is stubborn and isn’t looking around for truth since he believes he already has it.

The donkey represents lowliness and stubbornness. The three legged donkey with the left front leg missing represents imbalance, instability and error in the doctrine. Falling over to the left means the doctrine goes opposite of God’s Word.

A wise man’s heart [is] at his right hand; but a fool’s heart at his left.” Ecc. 10:2

And Jesus said to them, “Cast the net on the righthand side of the boat and you will find {a catch.}  So they cast, and they were not able to haul it in because of the great number of fish.”  John 21:6  The disciples had fished all night on the left side of the boat, going left indicates leaning away from truth or God’s plan.

The donkey and preacher were traveling along a timeline. The donkey starting from my left and moved past me to my immediate right, meaning the pre-tribulation teaching has been taught for sometime and currently is the prevalent teaching.  My standing stationary represents the time point of when the vision occurred.

The donkey going past by several steps from where I was standing and falling over signifies that sometime in the future, the error of the pre-tribulation doctrine will be exposed.  Actual events prophesied in the Bible begin with evidence in the heavens and the earth.

pretribDangerous and difficult times will make many begin to question the pre-tribulation teaching as things begin to happen; Christians have been taught these things would only happen after the church was raptured away. Great fear will come upon many and they will realize they haven’t made spiritual preparation for the inevitable delay which will come upon the body of Christ.  Many will not be prepared for the delay and will perish for they have no flask filled with oil. Matthew 25:1-12.
The preacher in the vision loves God and pursues Him in an intimate way and has faithfully served for many years with a pure heart. The man is not foolish as in the parable of the ten virgins. However, loving God doesn’t prevent people from believing false doctrines taught by people trusted to know the truth.

“But the Spirit explicitly says that in later times some will fall away from the faith, paying attention to deceitful spirits and doctrines of demons.” 1 Tim. 4:1

Closing:

I am revealing this vision now along with other revelations because it is my hope that you will be willing to listen. I realize in the past this hasn’t been the case, however the time is short and the onset of serious world events is nigh upon the earth.

It takes humility and trust as a child to learn the truth of God. If you think you can use your intellect to understand His mysteries then you are already deep in error in your walk with Him. Theology is man’s attempt to explain what he doesn’t understand.

“Whoever then humbles himself as this child, he is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.” Mt. 18:4

“Truly I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child will not enter it {at all.}” Lk. 18:17

I find that people are trusting in what they have been taught by respected seminaries and preached in most churches as the truth. The pre-tribulation doctrine is prevalent on the bookshelves in the Christian stores, Christian TV ministers declares it to be so, movies are made and conferences are held with speakers supporting this doctrine as absolute fact and revelation of God. Many might ask how could it be incorrect if it’s taught by almost everyone in the church with few exceptions?

As long as ministers of the gospel keep parroting what others are teaching without seeking Holy Spirit as the Revealer of Truth, there will continue to be error, misunderstanding and division in our church doctrine. As long as Bible scholars rely on their own intelligence to understand Biblical mysteries, there will always be error in doctrine and we will have hundreds of different church denominations -just as we do today.

“As for you, the anointing which you received from Him abides in you, and you have no need for anyone to teach you; but as His anointing teaches you about all things, and is true and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you abide in Him.” 1 John 2:27

When Apostle Paul first preached the gospel at Berea they listened politely and then went and examined the writings to see if what Paul was saying lined up with the scriptures.

“Now these were more noble-minded than those in Thessalonica, for they received the word with great eagerness, examining the Scriptures daily {to see} whether these things were so.” Acts 17:11

Unless we’re willing to trust Holy Spirit to teach us the truth and we lay down all our biases on Biblical teaching and become a blank slate for truth from God, then we’ll not be able to accurately learn or discern truth. It’s not easy to do these things, but God gives grace to the humble. “But He gives a greater grace. Therefore {it} says, “GOD IS OPPOSED TO THE PROUD, BUT GIVES GRACE TO THE HUMBLE.” James 4:6

“Be diligent to present yourself approved to God as a workman who does not need to be ashamed, accurately handling the word of truth.” 2 Tim. 2:15

“One who teaches needs to make sure what they are teaching is absolutely correct as confirmed by Holy Spirit. Let not many {of you} become teachers, my brethren, knowing that as such we will incur a stricter judgment.” James 3:1

We must approached God in prayer and humbly lay down everything we’ve been taught and remain open to Holy Spirit’s teaching.  This is especially important when Holy Spirit is flagging such an errant doctrine to the body of Christ.

“{There is} one body and one Spirit, just as also you were called in one hope of your calling; one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all who is over all and through all and in all.” Eph. 4:4-6

Therefore, at this time, I’m releasing this word, accepting my obligation to God to warn as many as will listen from far and wide.

“He who receives a prophet in {the} name of a prophet shall receive a prophet‘s reward; and he who receives a righteous man in the name of a righteous man shall receive a righteous man’s reward.” Mat. 10:41

I wanted to take a moment to share my appreciation for your faith in our Father and his faithfulness to you and your wife through grace and divine inspiration. Reading your personal experiences of the hand-in-hand walk with our Savior and thru the wisdom and understanding of Holy Spirit has truly encouraged me to seek Him with all of my mind, my heart, my soul and my strength. We serve an amazing Creator who desires us to have a very intimate relationship with Him. Your recent “vision” of the Three-Legged Donkey-End Times and Millions Will Perish-End Times has opened my servant heart to receive God’s truth as opposed to steadfastly holding onto the more popular belief of a pre-tribulation rapture. It has encouraged me to grow “deep roots” into our Father and to prepare extra flasks of oil for my lamp should Christ tarry his return. Dressed daily in the full body armor as provisioned in Ephesians, we must be prepared to protect our hearts in these last days and conquer through the power of Holy Spirit and in the grace, peace and love of our beautiful Christ.
Blessings upon you and your home.

  • Seasons in the Word Lead to Victories in the Spirit

    waveI have noticed that God gives us seasons where He leads us into studying His Word. During this season, we seem to have a greater desire to read the Word more than at other times. The Word seems to be more alive to us and the mysteries of God seem to jump off the page. Holy Spirit is illuminating new revelation to us as our faith is being built up in the truths of God.

    These Word seasons last for however long God has determined and then we begin to notice a transition in our walk. Often the change is first noticed during our prayer and Bible study time.

    During “dry” times, the scripture doesn’t seem to be flowing off the page as it was before and can seem difficult to get anything out of the Word at all; the Teacher is silent during the test. God’s silence is a good indicator that the waves now crashing a shore have changed from the Word season of growth and learning waves to spiritual waves and a season of trial and testing.

    Holy Spirit shifts our lives into spiritual seasons so we can walk out what He has been teaching us in the Word. Perhaps you’ve heard the saying, “A man with an experience is not at the mercy of a man with an argument.” A spiritual season is to give us experiential knowledge of God’s Word and the applied knowledge truly gives us true understanding of God. Our faith isn’t faith at all until it has been tested under fire. The military knows that a battle hardened soldier is much more effective than a soldier in basic training because they’ve been in battle after battle and have endured because of the training they have received.

    Jesus taught and demonstrated the Kingdom to His disciples before He commissioned them to go out and demonstrate it. Jesus repeated the process of Word seasons and spiritual wave seasons time and time again.

     In Luke 8:1, Jesus is going from one village to another proclaiming and preaching the kingdom of God with the twelve disciples following Him. In verse 10, the disciples are told that it has been granted for them to know the mysteries of the kingdom of God meaning that they would begin to understand the Word of God and the Spirit of God and how it must work together to demonstrate the Kingdom of God.  And in Luke 9:1, the disciples are commissioned with the power and authority of Jesus to go out with demonstration and proclaim the kingdom of God. So you see, the disciples had to go and get experiential knowledge for themselves.

    These Word seasons are to build us up in our faith so we can stand strong during the spiritual seasons. Years ago during the night I heard the Father say to me, “For I know the plans that I have for you, plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope.” (Jeremiah. 29:11). Then He said, “God is not a man, that He should lie, nor a son of man that He should repent; has He said, and will He not do it? Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good?” (Num. 23:19)

    genesis manThe Lord repeated Jeremiah 29:11 and Numbers 23:19 all night long in this order. Twice in the night I got up out of bed, once to adjust the thermostat and once to go the bathroom and immediately afterwards, I went back to bed only to hear Him repeat the verses over and over again. This continued all night long, even as I was beginning to wake up and dozing in and out of sleep, I would hear Him cycle through these verses over and over again. The verses were waves and waves of the Word that came to me all night in order to build my faith for the spiritual season which lay ahead.

     Shortly after this wonderful night of soaking in the waves of God’s Word, I entered into the hardest and darkest spiritual battle of my Christian walk. As it got closer I could see it coming yet I couldn’t do anything to get out of the way…the spiritual season was upon me and what a spiritual test it would be!

    The company where I was working was bought out by another company in a merger that placed me under new management with the new owners. I could discern evil coming, but I couldn’t put a name on it, I just knew the spiritual atmosphere had changed and it had changed for the worse. I pressed into God like never before sensing the danger which was coming upon my life and I too wanted this cup to pass from me.

    I wasn’t alone in sensing the danger of the hour as other Christian co-workers agreed that there was an evil and demonic presence in our building which was thick, heavy and intimidating. I knew God had assigned me in the work place ministry and that I couldn’t be fired, layed-off or quit until He released me from my assignment no matter what was going to happen to me.  

     Months passed as the new management transferred me out of my position into another location farther away, making my daily commute two hours round trip thus removing me from where God has placed me to minister. Instead of complaining, I just used that extra commute time to listen to preaching tapes and to meditate on the Word. My pastor at the time, had no information of my work conditions but when he would pass me in the fellowship meetings he would say, “When you come out of this you will be promoted and much stronger.”

    The spiritual attacks got worse but I kept pressing into prayer, studying and petitioning God to teach me what He wanted me to learn through this experience. We’re ultimately tested in order to learn that God is able to bring us through anything the enemy can throw at us if we won’t give up, give in and quit.

    On Sunday, July 7, 2002, Holy Spirit gave me a verse, “His left hand [is] under my head, and His right hand doth embrace me.” (Songs 2:6) This was my rhema word, I read it over and over and meditated on it all week long.

    I knew in the Spirit that evil darkness in the earth and the demonic kingdom was trying everything in its power to take my life this week. On Thursday, July 11th while driving back from lunch, an out of control driver raced out of a parking lot headed right at the driver’s side door of my vehicle. There just happened to be a side street where I was able to take evasive actions and I wasn’t even hit. It was so miraculous, that I couldn’t even get mad at the kamikaze driver that was used as a pawn by the devil’s kingdom.

    That same night, I walked out the front door of my house and was praying to God and said, “I present my body to You as a living sacrifice and I trust You with my life, use my body for Your glory.” 

    The very next day, I was riding my motorcycle home after work, a car came rushing out of a side street right in front of me. The driver stopped in front of me as my motorcycle sped toward certain collision at over forty-five miles per hour. I had always heard everything slows down when in a death situation like this and it’s true. It just appears to slow down when in fact the human mind races with thoughts and the adrenal gland kicks in and pumps like crazy.

    cautionThe first thought that came to me was that this wasn’t God’s plan for my life because He had told me all night long that He didn’t bring calamity into my life and that He would give me a future and a hope. It didn’t take a “rocket scientist” to figure out a speeding motorcycle about to T-bone a car isn’t God’s plan for me. I said, “This isn’t God’s plan for me and I shall live and not die, I’m going over this car Lord!”

    As I pressed hard on the front and rear brake levers, my speed didn’t slow down due to the short closing distance to the vehicle. Then “bam” I heard a loud crash as the front wheel of my motorcycle impacted the vehicle and I was airborne flying high over the car in the center lane. I wasn’t wearing a helmet and I was thought I wished I had it on for the impending impact to come. I said, “Lord if I hit my head I’m dead.” All I could see was the concrete road and thinking how much this was going to hurt.

    Suddenly, I noticed that my forward direction traveling down the center lane was being changed. Some external force was moving me from the center lane over to the left lane even though I couldn’t feel anything touching me. I landed on my right shoulder and head in the middle of the far left lane. I tumbled over and over as I could hear the impact of my head on the concrete. Amazingly, I didn’t feel any pain as I thumped along the concrete. Truly His left hand [is] under my head and His right hand doth embrace me.

    After I stopped tumbling, I lay there a few seconds completing my injury inventory. I was awaiting the message of “horrendous pain” to be sent through my body notifying every member that we’re hurt really bad, but it didn’t come.

    I got up to my knees and saw the people in the passing cars starring at me. In every direction people were just as though they had been frozen where they stopped their vehicles. They didn’t know if they had just seen a person die or at best seriously injured. All but two stayed in their cars and watched as a few came rushing to my aid.

     One man ran up to me and said he used to be a paramedic and he instructed me to stay down but I just couldn’t let the enemy have a moment of satisfaction in this. What the enemy had meant for my harm had failed and he needed to see me stand up, and stand up I did! Right in the middle of the devil’s snare, I rose in victory. In some ways this was no different from Daniel in the lion’s den, he was kept safe in the midst of death and so was I.

    Right beside me in the middle lane next to where I had landed was my motorcycle, all 800 pounds of it. It had obviously flipped end over end after colliding with the car and had been in the air flying right behind me. If an angel of the Lord hadn’t moved me out of the way, I would have been crushed to death by that motorcycle.

    I walked away from the accident with a quarter sized road rash on my left elbow, a slightly separated right clavicle and a pulled groin muscle, that was it.  The groin injury was miraculously healed the following Monday night when a minister called out a word knowledge saying that someone had a groin injury.  When I heard him say that word out loud I said, “That for me!” I immediately felt the power of God heal my groin injury.

    doublemanThe traffic officer who investigated the accident asked me three times what had happened, I’d tell him and each time he would respond with, “You shouldn’t be alive! You need to go home and thank God you’re still alive!”  He went on to say that he had been investigating traffic accidents for many years and he had been in a motorcycle wreck himself and he knew this is a miracle.

     The following Saturday morning, while in prayer, the Lord said in an audible voice, “It’s the spirit of Jezebel!” Now I knew what had been the driving force behind all the evil at work and the cause of the attacks on my life for the Jezebel spirit opposes the prophet as it did with Elijah. The light had come and shined in on the darkness to reveal it and how bright the light was, I knew I had the victory!

     Early one morning, before anyone was at work, I went to the office of the person the Jezebel spirit was operating through, and I bound the spirit from manifesting in their lives at work. Always remember that our battle isn’t with flesh and blood (people) but against rulers, against powers, against the world forces of darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places. (Eph. 6:12)  We are still required to pray for those who oppose us and love them regardless of what they are saying or doing to us at the time.

    The individual the spirit of Jezebel was operating through, was on vacation at this time and didn’t return until the next day. When I saw them, they were refreshed, happy and free and they thought it was all due to being on vacation – but I knew different.

    God had built me up in the Word by sending wave after wave of His wonderful Word to sustain me in the coming spiritual battle of my life and He will do the same for you. When you have done all to stand…stand!

    for now we {really} live, if you stand firm in the Lord. 1Thes. 3:8



  • Holy Spirit Our Helper

    Often when Christians think of Holy Spirit they only see Him as a helper in their spiritual walk and not in their day to day activities. Truly He will teach us all things and help us when we are reliant upon him.helperYears ago when I was a babe in Christ, I worked a job being responsible for a common carrier microwave video carrier network that covered hundreds of miles across Texas. Many times I would get called on an outage and be on the job site until I completed the repairs. Back then, we did component level repairs of almost all equipment, which means we diagnosed on site whatever the problem and came up with a fix to restore service to our customers.

    I was on call one Saturday morning, and received a call that a particular piece of equipment malfunctioned about thirty miles from home. After many hours of on-site diagnostics, I removed the piece of equipment and took it back to the repair shop. I worked and cannibalized some other equipment to make the proper repairs.

    When the sun rose on Sunday morning, I believed I had repaired the problem but I wasn’t really confident that it was going to work. I drove thirty miles back to the job site, pulled up to the gate and said to myself, “I sure hope this works.” Immediately, I heard Holy Spirit say to me, “Try it, it’ll work.” My confidence soared; I had heard God in the matter. I thought I’d been working all night alone, but I had a helper right by me saying, “Try it, it’ll work.”

    I went into the facility, walked up to the equipment bay, installed the piece of equipment and powered it up. The equipment usually would immediately blow a fuse, but this time it came on line and the problem was solved! I was amazed that God cared about such a non-Bible matter.

    Many times that job kept me out of church services and sometimes I would be confronted by well-meaning church members chastising me for working on Sunday and missing church. They looked at me as less than themselves; they looked at my situation and not my heart.

    Now, I was certain that God was concerned about my minute issues as well as the spiritual matters in my life. Even if my job took me away from church meetings from time to time, it didn’t take me away from Him. After all Jesus didn’t say, “I’ve come to give you meetings and meetings more abundantly.” But He did say, “I’ve come to give you life and life more abundantly.” John 10:10

    Later in my career, I was employed in a management role, my senior director called me requesting I come to his office. He didn’t say what he wanted, so as I walked the fifty or so steps to his office, I began to pray for witty ideas and for favor with my boss.

    As I arrived at his office, I found him to be very distracted by personal matters. He was in a quandary over what he should speak about at a Toastmasters meeting the next day during lunch. He needed to give his speech as an outline based subject matter, and he couldn’t think of anything.

    I sat there a second, reached for a piece of paper on his desk, and without even looking at it; I handed it to him and said, “Use this!” I didn’t know what I had given him, but when I saw the look on his face, I knew the God in me had moved, and He had moved in a miraculous way. The paper I handed him was an itemized list of company guidelines and successful business practices.

    He stared at it the paper, then at me, then back at the paper, and then at me for what seemed like an eternity. Suddenly, he went into jubilation and said, “This is exactly what I need, how did you do that!?” I just smiled and we chuckled together.

    As we discussed some other company issues, several times he interrupted himself, looked at me and said, “I still don’t know how you did that!” My boss was a believer, but to my knowledge, he had never witnessed anything like this. I kept on my best poker face during the time in his office, but as soon as I got away, I could no longer contain my exuberant gratefulness to my God and my Helper.

    It seems I often exhaust all my efforts on a dilemma before I surrender for the Helper to get involved, but I’m learning more and more to go to Him first and request His help. I just shared two stories, spanning thirty years or more, yet there are many other times my Helper has delivered me when in dire straits. It’s true, that if it’s our business it’s His business. Before Jesus went to the cross he told of God’s plan to send us a Helper which is Holy Spirit and that He is the Spirit of truth.

    John 14:16-17 “I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may be with you forever;{that is} the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it does not see Him or know Him, {but} you know Him because He abides with you and will be in you.

    John 16:7 “But I tell you the truth, it is to your advantage that I go away; for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you; but if I go, I will send Him to you.

    John 16: 13 “But when He, the Spirit of truth, comes, He will guide you into all the truth; for He will not speak on His own initiative, but whatever He hears, He will speak; and He will disclose to you what is to come.

    1 Peter 5:7 “casting all your anxiety on Him, because He cares for you.”
