Hidden in God

                                 
                                                   Thursday, October 13, 2011
When I got saved in 1998, I never thought God would lead to me where I am at this moment, seeking Him out with all my heart.  I love God.  I know that He has saved my life.  He has filled me with hope and given me an extraordinary purpose.  I never knew that a world far beyond the natural ever existed.  I knew God existed in what little bible stories I read about and heard in the random times I attended church as a child.  I was always curious about God.  He placed people in my path on the way to salvation.  

The stories of the bible, God and Jesus came more alive to me when I got baptised in the Holy Spirit in 2004.  I began to experience supernatural events in my life.  I began to receive prophetic words for other people to encourage them and build their faith in God.  It grew and grew until I began to see images of angels, I would see words written on the heads of people, words of prophecy, visions that came into fruition, dreams, and ultimately open visions of Heaven.  I see the Father, the, Son, and the Holy Spirit on a regular basis now.  I never would have thought I would expierience this in a thousand years.  I am thankful for it.  The visions I have are really ones that demonstrate God's love.  I believe He shows it me because I have been a person who has been without love and have desired for it deeply.

In my lastest vision, I am fasting during this process, I am in Heaven with the apostles Paul and Peter.  (I've also been studying the book of Acts during the fast).  In this vision I can see Paul and Peter standing next to me, when Jesus walks up.  As soon as Jesus arrives Pete and Paul fall in the ground and begin to worship.  I am in between them and do the same.  For a few moments we worship the Lord together.  Then Jesus directs the apostles to lay a sheer white sheet over me.  He tell thems to lay their hands on me and pray.  I cannot hear anything at all.  I am not sure what they are praying about. 

On earth, I am laying on my dining room floor, praying in the Spirit while this takes place.  I notice Jesus standing there in front of me watching these two great men pray for me.  I paid close attention to His feet. There is just something special about His feet.  It represents His humility.  It also lets me know just how close He was standing next to me, watching and observing me. 

After a while, I see in the Spirit, the Father walk up behind Jesus and then kneeling down next to me.  He, too, laid His hand upon me.  He didn't say anything to me.  He just watched me. Then removed the sheer cloth from my body and picked me up into His arms, cradling me like a small child.  Jesus, Peter, and Paul watched as the Father walked away.  The Lord sat down on a bench with me in His arms.  He carassed my hair and held me for while.  Later He laid me down on the bench and began to study me.  He looked at every detail of my being.  He was on His knees "checking me out".  

The Father stood up and then laid down directly over me.  When He laid down on me, my whole being was absorbed into Him, until I completely absorbed inside of Him.  He stood up from the bench.  I heard Him say, "You are hidden in Me."
                                                     
My heart swelled with joy at that moment.  We are all "hidden" in God.  I am thankful. 

Amen.  To God be the glory!

Open Visions

Wed. Oct 4, 2011 9:25 pm




Often ,when I have a vision  I am not quite sure how to write it down.  The question in my heart is how do I to write or explain a vision so spectacular in words.  I am not the most gifted of writers.  However, I do know if guided by the Holy Spirit, I will be able to write it.  I want everything conveyed on this blog to give glory to God and touch the reader.  In every way, I hope it brings the reader closer to God and builds up their faith.  If I have a vision I don't think it's meant  just for me, but for everyone.  If the apostles kept their experience with Jesus to themselves would we have Christianity?  The apostles shared their faith and gifts from the Lord with others.  That is my purpose for this blog

My most recent vision started a few weeks ago.  I was standing in my living room when I had a vision of a beautiful cathedral in heaven.  It looked like it was made out of white marble.  The front entrance of the cathedral had red carpet that led into the santuary.  When I walked inside it looked like a tradional style church full of pews.  In the second row from the front of the santuary sat my spiritual father, Gene, and on the right was the Father and the Son.  My focus was on Gene at the time.  Gene turned to face me with a huge grin on his face.  He pointed to Michael, another spiritual father of mine, who was kneeling on the floor in the front of the santuary.  He was in posture of prayer.

I also noticed that in the very front of the chapel was furniture to the back of the wall.  The craftsmanship of the furniture was very old. It was crafted out of the dark  magony wood.  I noticed  in the center was a very large chair in the middle, then much smaller chairs to the left and to the right.  I only assumed that the large chair was for the Lord.   I also paid attention to the stained glass windows in the chapel.  I could see the hues of blue and red in the glass. It was very beautiful.  The light was shining in from the windows.

The next portion of my vision I was aware that there were others in the chapel besides, Michael, Gene, the Father and the Son.  The Holy Spirit helped me understand who else was in the room with us.  We were joined by the Apostles Paul, John and Peter, and the Patriarchs, Moses and Abraham.  I was not sure why they were there.  It had not become clear to me at that moment. 
They had surrounded Michael who was kneeling on the floor.  I had joined Gene in the chair against the back wall, we both observed what was going.  It was becoming more apparent to me that we were there to observe a ceremony for Michael.  Michael has been a long time visitor to Heaven and a great friend to Gene since their childhood.  Michael has spent his lifetime dedicated to the Lord and learning about God.  He has a very special calling and relationship with the Lord.  In Heaven he is the constant companionship of the Trinity.  On earth he has been plagued by  illness due to diabetes
  This ceremony form him is receive an impartation from each of the 12 apostles and also to receive his healing. The Lord has promised healing in his physical body.  It has been prophesied to him that he is go on to do great works for the Lord and share the gospel of Jesus Christ throught the earth.  I believe this for him.  Michael is my mentor and my father.  I love him as a daughter.  In his sufferings, he continously seems to have joy.  His personal relationship with God has given him an inner strength to continue on through his pain and suffering.  I have heard the Lord call him Job or son of Job on numerous occasions.  What this has conveyed to me is that God plans on restoring Michael's health like job and much more.  I really am standing in faith along with many others who love Michael.  I know Gene is eager to see him healed.  Gene loves Michael like brother.  They have been friends since they were 13 years old.  Now both in their 50's, they walk in heavenly places together.  They won't declare it, but they are commissioned apostles of God.  They both walk in the gifts of Holy Spirit.  They both have hearts for the Lord. They disciple me and encourage me in my giftings.  I am truely blessed to know both of these great men of God.
This vision is taking place while I am in Colorado and they are in Virginia.  They both are experiencing the vision too.  I have had a conversation with them over the phone about what we are witnessing happening to Michael. When I was on the phone with Michael he did not want to know any of the details of the vision.  He wanted to experience it fully for himself.  He did confirm a few things that was happening there.   Gene also confirmed various things as well about the chapel we were both in.  He noticed the fresco paintings on the ceiling.  He could see them better than I could.  I could make out some of it.  My sight is not clear as theirs in heaven.  They've been walking in Heaven for over 20 years and I have only been experiencing it for about 3 years now.   What's interesting about this that as you get older on earth your vision gets worse.  In heaven, your vision increases, getting better with time.  My vision in heaven is blury, on earth I have 20/10 eye sight. Michael and Gene both were glasses - in heaven they see everything clearly. 
This vision took place over a period of a few days. About a week ago.  I had a short vision of the 12 apostles around  Michael, praying for Him.  Each imparting words of knowledge to him.  On the outside of the apostles stood the Patriarchs, Moses and Abraham.  While they all laid hands on him, I could see the power God surge through each them through Michael's spirit and into the earth below.  His power touched Michael's physical body - healing Him.
I know there are to be witnesses here on earth that will, too, see him healed.  One of them being Gene.  Gene has ministered healing to Michael several times where he has expierenced symptoms of relief for sometime.  Michael's healing is soon at hand and it will glorify God. It will also encourage and bless the people that love him dearly.

Amen

Church of Seattle




To the Church of Seattle

Church of Seattle  and Its Sheperd says the Lord of Hosts,

Listen to My words.  In the days coming I will unleash My power and Holy Spirit upon your church!  I will pour out My Spirit like never seen before in the city. I am calling you, My saints, to My heart.  Listen to me. The time is at hand.  This is something I've been stirring in your pastor's for the last 8 years.  He has desired that revival come to Seattle.  I have heard his prayers.  He has fasted day and night.  He had mourned and grieved for this great city. 

Son, I will honor you and answer your prayers.  Abraham asked Me if there was righteous people in Sodom and Gormorah would I save it the city.  I said that I would.  In Seattle, there are righteous people.  Son I will save the city.  Upon you I will pour out My spirit and through you I will bring revival to every corner of the city.  It will be heard of all all over the world.  I will  be preprare you to receive the flock.  I will provide the laborers to receive my new born sheep.  You will not be overwelmed.

Let Me share this with you, because you will have a question in your heart about this.  You will say why me?  How can this be?  I am only a man and one man at that.  Son, through one man I brought salvation to the world.  Through one man an entire nation was born.  Through one man,  my children were lead out of bondage in Egypt. Through one man, you, I will lead the greatest revival Seattle has ever seen and will ever experience.  Trust Me to do this son.  Nothing is impossible. 

Be blessed son.  Continue to seek Me on this.  Abba

Now I pray in the name of Jesus that this word would reach the Church of Seattle.  Receive this word into your heart.  May the Lord confirm it in various ways to you.  May the Lord bless and strengthen this congregation.  May He receive all the Glory!  In Jesus name amen.

Another Revelation of Seattle -God's Call to the Unbeliver and Restoration of the True Church



There are some nights I'll stay up all night just because I can't fall sleep.  Last night and this morning is just one of those nights.  At about 3 am this I began to pray in the Spirit.  The Lord showed me the Pillar of Fire of the Holy Spirit.  He was right next me, except just a portion of Holy Spirit was touching my heart. ( The pillar of fire looked like a funnel - with the the tail end touching my heart).  When I saw the Lord touch my heart,  He said, "Confess your sins."   As soon as I confessed my sins the Holy Spirit placed me into the middle of the pillar of fire, Himself.   I felt peace sweep over me and I became quiet.  He began to speak to my spirit/thoughts. He said that revival again was coming to Seattle.

He even gave me a date (I'm holding on to the date).  However, the date of month happens to be the 6th.  I, being completey oblivous to dates, did not realize today was the 6th of August.  I want to hold on to the month and date until the Lord leads me to release it. 

 The Lord seems eager to bring revival to this city.  He has made me realize that the people of the city are hungry for change.  It not just the believers but the unbelievers too.  The unbelievers just don't know what they are looking for. They  know they are hungry for something.  God is going to satisfy the hunger.  The hunger is Him.  They are beginning to question their existence.  A lot of Seattle residents place their faith in themselves and education.  Many are learning that this is not enough to satisfy the hole in their hearts that only God can fill.  This revelation is not a judgement on them.  It's a calling.  It's God calling to their hearts.  God loves the unbeliever.  Even though the veil had not been removed from the heart - God's passion for the believer is just the same for them.  He created them.  He is zealous for them.  He wants to gather them to His bosom and show them great love.

Even more, God, wants to reach the broken in the streets of Seattle.  He wants to reach out to the homeless man and the orphaned child.  He wants to reach to them because they have lost hope in Him and in people. They have been abandoned and looked down upon by many.   Jesus was the Great Social Worker. He touched every person in all levels of society.  He ministerd to the poor and to the sick.  He wants to do the same in Seattle.  Seattle is not forgotten by God.

The church of Seattle has been chosen by God to pour out His Spirit.  He wants to bring a revival that will change every aspect of Seattle and its residence.  Healing will come to this city through this church.  Through this revival even the skeptical will be converted.  People will be delivered of various illnesses and pain - whether it be mental, emotional,  and physical.  Futhermore, God will do the impossible.  He will draw people to His heart the way he desires His children to love Him ( The LORD your God will circumcise your hearts and the hearts of your descendants, so that you may love him with all your heart and with all your soul, and live. Deuteronomy 30:5-7 (in Context) )

No believer has it in their power and strength to produce the life in Christ within themselves.  God will do this.  The naysayers of Christianity will be absolutely dumbfounded by the heart and the church that God will produce in the Seattle Church (But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to put to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to put to shame the things which are mighty; 1 Corinthians 1:26-28 (in Context)). God is bringing back the old paths and the old church.  The church will be the true church of God where its people will worship Him in truth and in Spirit.  They will live out the Great Commission and be the Acts II church.  It will live out the meaning of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  False doctorines, religious ideologies, ritualistic, and legalistic worship will not have a place in this church.  The children of God will sing, dance and praise Him with all their hearts, minds and souls.  The people of the church will have one heart, one mind, and one body in Christ.    The church of Seattle will set the bar for all churches through out the earth.  Amen!

May all the Glory be to God.  May God bless Seattle and its residents with His Glory and more!

Heavenly Vision - The Fruit Tree



11:55 pm Thursday, July 7, 2011

I was sittinging in my living room watching television when I heard the Lord ask me to read Romans 7:13-25.  Opened up my New King James Version bible to the recommended scripture.  I skimmed over it and studied it:

Romans 7:13-25


13 Has then what is good become death to me? Certainly not! But sin, that it might appear sin, was producing death in me through what is good, so that sin through the commandment might become exceedingly sinful. 14 For we know that the law is spiritual, but I am carnal, sold under sin. 15 For what I am doing, I do not understand. For what I will to do, that I do not practice; but what I hate, that I do. 16 If, then, I do what I will not to do, I agree with the law that it is good. 17 But now, it is no longer I who do it, but sin that dwells in me. 18 For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh) nothing good dwells; for to will is present with me, but how to perform what is good I do not find. 19 For the good that I will to do, I do not do; but the evil I will not to do, that I practice. 20 Now if I do what I will not to do, it is no longer I who do it, but sin that dwells in me.
21 I find then a law, that evil is present with me, the one who wills to do good. 22 For I delight in the law of God according to the inward man. 23 But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members. 24 O wretched man that I am! Who will deliver me from this body of death? 25 I thank God—through Jesus Christ our Lord!
So then, with the mind I myself serve the law of God, but with the flesh the law of sin.

The Lord said to pray over it.  I did as the Lord instructed.  I prayed over the words, letting Paul's words take root in my heart.   His words are truth.  Who is perfect? Who can possibly carry out the Christian life?  It is impossible to carry out this marathon  with out the power of God to back it up. 

As I finished praying, I saw the Lord carry a tree into the middle of my living room.  (While this takes place, I see things as they take place in the Spirit.  The Lord is in Heaven.  The images I see play out before my eyes like a 3-d projection.  I am conscience of what is happening in the natural world as I am in the spiritual world.)

The Lord said to me, "  This fruit for you, Shanna, is different.  When you take a bite of this fruit, it's going to bring spiritual nutrients that you need and it will help manifest my nature from within you.  Now, please come and take a piece of this sacred fruit from the tree."  The Lord extended His hand out to me.

He explained,  "Also do what you see yourself do in the Spirit, do it likewise in the natural!"

I saw myself grab the Lord's hand.  He wrapped His fingers around my small insignificant hand.  I did as He instructed in the natural, and reached out for the invisible hand of God. In the Spirit, the Lord turned me toward the tree.  Upon it were golden yellow pears. 

He said, "Grab one."

In the Spirit/natural I reached through the branches grabbing a single pear.  I examined it in my hand.  The Lord then directed me back to the couch.  I sat down with the pear in hand.  I looked to the Father then to Jesus for guidance.

Father said, "My Son will take the first bite."  I watched the Savior sink his teeth into the fruit, and then lifted His fruit up in a gesture of  "go ahead".  I looked down at the pear once more before taking a bite.  In the Spirit, I took a big bite.  It was so juicy that streams of it dripped down my chin and neck. I took several large bites until it was gone.  When I finished with pear, I found myself in a place in Heaven.  In front of me was a huge oak tree growing out of the ground on its side.  The grass surrounding it was lush and green.  Behind was a steep hillside. I flicked the core of the fruit where it landed on the ground behind the tree.  The ground absorbed the pear.  In it's place sprouted several white flowers.  (How's that for biodegradable?) Moments later, Jesus appeared sitting on the trunk of the oak tree.  He didn't say anything.  He allowed me to see the features of His face.  I could see His dark brown, almost black, beard and long wavy hair.  I could even see the lines of His forehead and eyes.  I was not able to see the color of His eyes.  His skin looks slightly tanned as if he has spent a lot of time in the sun.  His cheeks are a rosie pink.  He is handsome.

Next, in the Spirit, I saw the Lord holding me in His arms.  I was tucked under His arm.  In the natural, I was observing this vision in the third and first person perspective.  When I observed Him holding me from a third person perspective, I becamed overwhelmed with emotion.

I cried to him, "Lord I need that here on Earth."

Jesus replied, "Daughter you will have it and more."

 My vision ended there with Jesus.  I heard the Father speak next.

Father shared with me, "Shanna, now you need to relax.  You are going to join your father, Michael, here in heaven shortly.  You'll need to rest."

Shortly after the Lord's comments to me, an angel of the Lord appeared to me.

He said, " The Lord is going to address the issues of your heart.

The angel handed me a scroll.

He stated, "You'll need to read this."

I opened the scroll.  It said the issues of your heart are sin and bitterness.  I looked up from the scroll and saw a dirt path that lead to the Mountain of God.  In the distance I could see my spiritual father, Michael, beckoning me to come.  I got up off the ground. I could feel the rocks crunch under my feet as I made my way toward Michael.

The Vision Burning In My Heart For Seattle, Wa

For the last 4 years I have had a burning vision in my heart.  The vision is that a revival will come to the city of Seattle.  The vision started in the late August of 2007.  The Lord started illuminating the city of Seattle to me then.  He started showing me Washington State liscence plates. Seattle stood out on the Weather Channel and other ways.  I had visions of Mount Rainer, killer whales, the North Pacific coast, and then downtown Seattle in the Queen Anne district.  The Seattle space needled has always stood out in all my visions.  He showed me Seattle Pacific University too.  I looked up Seattle Pacific University and found out it was a Christian University in the Belltown and Queen Anne district of Seattle. From August 2007 to January 2008 the visions were on going.

In January 2008, I began to question the Lord about the visions I was having.  I asked Him am I moving there? Was someone I knew moving to Seattle.  I even questioned my friend Lisa about it.  She told me to pray and or even take a trip there to see if the Lord give me a greater revelation about this vision.  While I was at Lisa's house, my friend Laura's name came to mind.  I thought to myself could Laura be moving to Seattle or Washington State?  I called her as soon as her name popped into my mind. I got her answering machine and asked her if she was moving to Seattle.  I received  a call from her a few hours later saying that she and her husband had, indeed, made plans to relocate there.  They moved to the area in October of 2008 and have been there since. 

I thought that the visions would end once I gave Laura that word of prophecy.  That was not the case. My visions continued and began to increase.  The Lord showed me downtown Seattle, specifically a small square building surrounded by larger, taller buildings. Behind it was the Seattle Space needle.  The Lord did not clarify what the building was.  He showed me a funnel cloud over the building that was extended all the way to heaven.  The Lord was pouring out His living water through this funnel and into the building.  The cloud then was connected like an amibilical cord to a man preaching to a crowd of people. The power and the River of God flowed through this man and out to the passes like a tidal wave.  The Lord then said to me that this was a revival coming to the church and out to the city.  He said it would be like that of the Azusa Street Revival in Los Angeles. 

I've shared these visions with people at church, my spiritual father Michael, Gene and my beloved friend Laura.  Gene even shared a vision for the church.  He said that he saw a raging river - like that of one flowing down a mountain side that was flowing into the church from heaven. 

Sometime between 2009 and 2010, the Lord showed me a vision of the downtown area again in the Spirit.  Mind you, I've never been to Seattle.  I had no idea what the downtown area looked like.  I've only seen pictures of Seattle in a photograph.  One day, I decided to take it upon myself to look at google maps of Belltown-Queen Anne district.  Google has a street panaromic view.  I started out at the Seattle space needle, searching for the tall buildings, that were so vivid in my vision, and the small block like building that surrounded it.  Low and behold, I found the building it and the skyscrapers around it.  It was exactly as the Lord had showed me in my visions.  I found out the church was the Seattle City Church. 

I did some research on the Seattle City Church it was founded by Pastor Wendell Smith in the early 90's.  It's an apolostic church.  The church based on scripture and bibically sound.  It blew my mind away.  When I found out the kind of church it was I asked God to reveal more to me. 

Since God has revealed the place where this great revival is to take place, the visions increased even more.  Behind the church is a yellow building called the Lighting Supply.  Often, on the left had corner of the front of the building, where two streets intersect, I have seen visions of angels and the Lord standing there talking.  I saw Jesus stand there one time whle an angel brought Him a scroll with a message for the church.  In that moment, I heard the Lord call the church the Church Of Seattle.  I've seen the church as a beacon of light or a bubble of light surrounded by complete darkness.  An angel guards the Church of Seattle to protect it from the surrounding darkness. 

The Lord has explained to me that the revival that is to come to this church is going to be history changing and life changing to all those who are touched by it.  The power of God is going to come on so strong to the pastor of this chuch and reach out to the believers and even unbelievers.  It will change the followers of the church from the inside out. The zeal they will have for the Living God will be the kind that will move mountains and touch the world for Christ.  The whole city of Seattle will be changed by it. 

The words the Lord has given me are only ones of mercy and grace.  I believe that many people are seeking out God with all their hearts but don't see change in their lives.  They are still bound by the enemy.  Yes,  Christians can still be bound even if they are filled with the Holy Spirit. I think in this case of revival.  Jesus' Great Commision will be unleashed in Seattle.  I believe many captives will be set free.  This is the word in my heart. This word has been in my heart for 4 years.

My dear sister in the Lord, Laura, has prayed for  Belltown, Queen Anne, and Seattle Pacific University.  She said when she walked on the campus of Seattle Pacific University, the presence of Holy Spirit was very strong and it consumed her!  The Lord had revealed much to her about the history of the area and she was sent to pray for the tearing down of strong holds over the area.  Now, I know her prayers will bare much fruit.  She was sent to plant the seeds.  The Lord will water and give the increase.  May the Lord bless my sister for her obedience.

The Lord still gives me random reminders of Seattle in my heart.  The vision is now written down.  May the Lord bless this vision and may He receive all glory for it! Amen



The funnel cloud is the Shekinah glory of God.

For the Child of God (To You Precious One)

  1.                    


To You Child Of God,

You are my child.  Remember it was I who sought you out first.  I started laying the thoughts of Myself in your heart and mind.  I was the reason why you began seeking.  I put the question in your mind.  Then as you began seeking me,  you began to question Why Me?  I said to you because I love you!  I took you just as you are - broken, spritiual dead, sad, lonely, looking for love, looking for guidance, looking for a family.  I healed your broken parts, made you spiritually alive, gave you joy, filled the lonely void in your heart, gave you love, gave you guidance, and gave you a family. 

This is will always be open to you - even if you turn away from Me.  Does a father deny a child who has been away for years?  Neither do I.  I love you My child.  I want to show you a greater love.  A love that you have never known.  You cannot find this love through people like a spouse, friend or child.  The love that I offer can only found in Me.  Found in a personal relationship with me.

You ask how do I get this love?  What do I have to do to find love that your offering?  You don't have to do anything My precious child.  Will you just come when I call in the moment?  When your Father calls come to Me.  You will hear my voice, I promise.  There will be no confusion.  I promise.  I don't want my children to be confused.  I will help you to distinctly here My voice. 

I promised you an abundant life. I will give it!  I am your life.  Let the things of the world go to Me.  I will help shed the things of the world off of you.  Remember that I am the Vine Dresser.  I prune the branches on the Vine.  I will prune your branches and cut off the dead ones.  Let me help.  I will do all the work.  Just follow my leading dear one. 

I love you. 
Heavenly Father

Eze.  16:1-14

God’s Love for Jerusalem
1 Again the word of the LORD came to me, saying, 2 “Son of man, cause Jerusalem to know her abominations, 3 and say, ‘Thus says the Lord GOD to Jerusalem: “Your birth and your nativity are from the land of Canaan; your father was an Amorite and your mother a Hittite. 4 As for your nativity, on the day you were born your navel cord was not cut, nor were you washed in water to cleanse you; you were not rubbed with salt nor wrapped in swaddling cloths. 5 No eye pitied you, to do any of these things for you, to have compassion on you; but you were thrown out into the open field, when you yourself were loathed on the day you were born.
6 “And when I passed by you and saw you struggling in your own blood, I said to you in your blood, ‘Live!’ Yes, I said to you in your blood, ‘Live!’ 7 I made you thrive like a plant in the field; and you grew, matured, and became very beautiful. Your breasts were formed, your hair grew, but you were naked and bare.
8 “When I passed by you again and looked upon you, indeed your time was the time of love; so I spread My wing over you and covered your nakedness. Yes, I swore an oath to you and entered into a covenant with you, and you became Mine,” says the Lord GOD.
9 “Then I washed you in water; yes, I thoroughly washed off your blood, and I anointed you with oil. 10 I clothed you in embroidered cloth and gave you sandals of badger skin; I clothed you with fine linen and covered you with silk. 11 I adorned you with ornaments, put bracelets on your wrists, and a chain on your neck. 12 And I put a jewel in your nose, earrings in your ears, and a beautiful crown on your head. 13 Thus you were adorned with gold and silver, and your clothing was of fine linen, silk, and embroidered cloth. You ate pastry of fine flour, honey, and oil. You were exceedingly beautiful, and succeeded to royalty. 14 Your fame went out among the nations because of your beauty, for it was perfect through My splendor which I had bestowed on you,” says the Lord GOD.

Blessed Beyond Measure

I don't know what I would do about God.  He is forever engrained in my soul.  His words have captured my heart.  He is a true Father to me.  I know that I am family. His daughter.  He often refers to me as Daughter of Zion  Which is translated from Hebrew to English as daughter of the Rock.  I am the daughter of the Rock.  The more God is sought out the more of the "veil" is removed. 

What is the veil?  The veil is a spiritual blindness that God has placed upon us, so that we cannot see the spiritual world or know spiritual things.  As we seek God, He begins to remove those layers.  You'll begin to see more and more.  Just ask and He'll remove the veil.  It's a gift to anyone who ask and seeks out the Lord.  You don't have to know what to do.  Just ask the Lord.  He'll take care of the rest.

He Cares. He's Family.

                                     
Yesterday, I worked 11 hours.  When, I came home I turned on my televion watching this show called "Coming Home" on the Lifetime channel.  It was about young military fathers returning home to their wives and small children.  Each segment of the show was very powerful and emotional.  I love a good story like that. 

After the show was over, I got up from my couch and went into the kitchen.  As I walked around the corner of my living room and into my dining room, I saw out of the corner of my eye the Pillar of Fire of the Holy Spirit.  The Pillar of Fire extended from my living room floor to the ceiling (11ft).  I went into the kitchen to grab something to eat out of the "frig" and laid back down on my couch.  The Father then spoke to me.

He said, "Shanna, I'm here for you no matter how you feel or what you are going through.  I know that your hurting.  I can feel what your feeling.  I'm here for you."

He walked over to where I was laying, kneeling down by the couch where I was.  He then began to stroke my hair, like a caring loving Father that He was/is.  In His eyes, I could see true concern and love.  I didn't say anything.  I just looked at Him and took the words He said to me into my heart.  I needed to hear those words from Him. 

The Father then looked at the Holy Spirit, who was near by observing.  The understanding I have that this is my family.  The Holy Spirit and the Father were there for me.  I had a vision a few months back where I was seated in cabin in the forest of God.  I was seated at a table with the the Father, the son and the Holy Spirit was hovering around.  We were having a conversation, which I cannot recall. I realized at that moment we were family.

God's Love, God Heart


I feel very blessed to have been chosen by God to receive such beautiful visions of Himself.  Often, when I do have these visions my mind cannot quite comprehend the experience.  It just seems to be to extraordinary and to wonderful to behold.  However, it's exactly as the the Lord shows me.  If it is God showing it, then it's meant to be received as truth.  God is not a man that he should lie.  Who am I to say what God is showing me is authentic or not?  I know the visions are real.  The visions I have are always backed up by scripture.

One night, while I was sitting on my couch (most my visions happen while I'm sitting on the couch) the Lord asked me a question.  He asked, "Ask me anything and I will grant it to you?"

My heart swelled with overwhelming joy when He presented me with this wonderful opportunity. 

I replied to the Lord saying, "Lord, I want your heart.  I want to know you personally."

In a vision I saw the Father standing next to Jesus.  The Father dropped to His knees, wrapped His arms around Jesus, and began to cry when I said this to Him.  In that moment, I began to understand just how desperately the Lord wanted me/us to know Him personally.  He craves it with all His heart, mind and Holy Spirit.  My hope is that I can get the concept of God's great love into my own heart and spirit!  It's a beautiful, beautiful thing we have in God. 

I am thankful to have God as my god.  I cannot image having a God who was far off and distant.  My God is right there wanting a personal, loving and intimate relationship with me/you on passionate level. 

Amen!

Heavenly Visitations

Since Monday I’ve been in a cave on the mountain of God with the Holy Spirit.  Throughout the week I could see brief moments of myself still on the floor of the cave wrapped up in the cloak, my face slightly covered by the hood.  I truly am peaceful there.  From time to time, the Holy Spirit would reach down to check on me.  On earth, I can hear the voice of God more clearly.  He’s been guiding me on a moment to moment basis.  I’ve never experienced the Lord personally like this.  I’ve desired it my whole Christian walk.  I was saved in February of 1998.  It’s been 13 years.   I am happy about this.  I desire more for sure.
Today, I find myself back on the mountain of God still on the floor.  With my spiritual eyes I could see exactly everything happening.  I’ve been observing Jesus observing me.  At one time, he cradled me in his arms as I lay asleep.  I noticed He was crying.  In the Spirit I heard him say, “I can feel your pain child.  I can feel your sadness.”  He was weeping for me. He gently laid me back on the floor.  The Holy Spirit reached down to see if I was doing well. 
A little while later, Jesus picked me up off the ground holding me in his arms again.   He placed his head on mine (still asleep).  The Father joined Him.  Jesus handed me to the Father, and the Father cradled me too.  Then Lord handed me back to the Savior.  Jesus continued to hold me in his arms.   The Holy Spirit extended his hands towards lifting me into the Glory cloud. I was being passed back and forth from each person of the Trinity.  Truely, I am loved in this place.  I am being cherished by them like family that cherishes a child.
The Jesus woke me and stood me up on my feet.   He escorted me to the edge of the cave pointing to a city below in a valley.The Holy Spirit came out of the cave grabbing me by the shoulders with His hands and we flew off the mountain.  He took me into a doorway between Heaven and space.  From here I could see the stars and the Earth.    We stepped out of Heaven into the outer space.  We began travelling at a high rate of speed towards our blue planet.  We entered the Earth’s atmosphere descending into a dry dirt field next old factory.  I asked the Holy Spirit what this place was.  He explained to me that it was Kansas 60 years from now.  He said that drought and famine would turn the State of Kansas into a dust bowl.  
From there, I found myself in another cave in Heaven.  This time this place seemed deeper into the mountain, perhaps in the interior portion of the mountain.  Inside, I saw myself with the Father next to a small pond or lake.  He led me to the pond and baptized me in the water.  When I came out an angel of the Lord was there with a clean robe.  He draped the robe around.  The Father came to me and laid me back on the floor.  The Lord  placed hands on my sternum. When He did this demons began to flee, dozens of them.  The last demon to flee He grabbed by the neck pushing him to the ground next to me.  The Father exclaimed, “Now apologize to her!”
I asked the Lord, “Who is this?”
He replied, “This is the spirit of adultery, lies and deceit.  This is the spirit that has been tormenting you.  He has tormented you since childhood. He no longer has authority over you!”   The Lord threw the demon away from me. It completely vaporized into thin air.  Praise the Lord!
After my experience with the Father, I found myself in a long hallway carved out of rock.  A distance down the hallway I saw Jesus waiting for me.  I ran to Him.  He said lets go to the banquet hall.  The Lord placed his arms around my shoulder and guided me to dining hall made out of this rock.  I could see through windows and inside of the banquet hall. Amen!

His Humility

                                                     Tuesday, June 7, 2011


I don't always write visions down when I receive them.  Many of the visions I have are so personal and beautiful.  Honestly, they are meant to be shared.  Most of the visions I have are always encouraging and always demonstrate the act and character of God.  If I keep them to myself what's the point?  Isn't the purpose of visions, dreams, and prophecy meant for the edification and the building up of our faith and church?

One late night, while I was watching television, the Lord Jesus appeared to me in a vision.  He knelt down in praying position and began to intereced for me.  Next, the Father bowed before me. He grabbed my hand and elevated it above His head.  I looked at him in disbelief.  (I could not understand why the Creator of the Universe was bowing before me.)  I became choked up, tears swelled in my eyes, with a humble heart I asked Him, "Why are you doing this Lord?" 

The Lord replied, "Because I'm showing you my humility." 

In that moment the Lord demonstrated His character to me:

Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. Matthew 11:29

Thursday May 12, 2011



The Lord called me into the living room this morning.  He pointed to a specific place on the floor where He wanted me to sit.  When I sat down, I could see Jesus in the Spirit directly in front of me in a seated position, Indian style.  I saw His face, beard and eyes.  His features are not very defined to me yet.  I cannot see the color of His eyes or the lines on His face.  He would often turn His face displaying His profile.   His features are of a young man in his early thirties. While observing Jesus with my Spiritual eyes, my mind cannot quite comprehend what I am experiencing.  My thoughts posed a question as I experienced this vision.  My mentor explained to me that you can experience what is going on in the Spirit, and your mind will not be able to process the information that is being downloaded into your spirit.  Your spirit can process the information faster than your mind.
Even though my mind cannot understand the reality of what is happening at the present time, I can still see Jesus seated in front of me, and then a rock or cave with a small spring flowing towards me.   In the distance, I could see a being of Light.  The Light was so brilliant.  It was a very white light, not yellow like the sun.  It was a very translucent white light.  The spring became clear and clearer in the vision.  The spring flowed out of a crevice that had been carved out of the rock.  To the left of the spring looked like a window cut out of the mountain (I am in another place in the mountain of God).  I observed the water flow to the edge of the spring where I was holding a pitcher to capture the water.  I then set the water pitcher aside, so that I could feel the water run over my hands as it flowed to the ground below.  The water did not splash onto the ground.  It was absorbed into the rock.
Moments later, I saw another hand in the water with mine.  I looked over to see feet in sandals and the bottom of a robe.  My eyes lifted to see a man with a dark brown hair, beard and eyes.  His robe was white with a brown tunic draped over it.  He was smiling and talking to me.  The Holy Spirit spoke to my spirit saying this was the Apostle Paul.  Jesus came up to greet Paul with a holy kiss and embrace. 
The Lord said to me, “This is Paul.  He is here to teach you about his earthly ministry and struggles on earth in the flesh.”
Jesus hugged Paul and began to leave.  I cried out to Jesus, stating to him that I did not want Him to leave without hugging me.  The Savior came over to me, kissed me on the forehead, and then he walked away.   I wondered where He was going.
Paul sat down next to the spring, placing his hand in the running water.  I joined him on the opposite side. 
He said to me, while looking at the water running off his hand, “This is a well.  This is a well of living water.  This is the water that flows through you and me.  It flows from the Throne of God, through every corner of heaven, and to every soul that has been grafted into the family of God.”
Paul then explained to me about his struggles in the flesh.  He said that he would cry out to the Lord about it.  He shared that the Lord would put to death the struggles he had through the Spirit. I think it’s interesting that I am having this conversation with Paul.  Presently, I have been crying out to God about my own struggles in the flesh.  Day and I night I have cried out to God about the war I that wages within me, along with my desire to walk out this life in the Spirit.  His struggles were like my own.  I understood what Paul was explaining in Romans 7:15-25 (NKJV):
For what I am doing, I do not understand.  For what I will to do, that I do not practice, but what I hate, that I do.  If then, I do what I will not to do, I agree with the law that it is good.  But now, it is no longer I who do it, but sin that dwells in me.  For I know that in me (that is my flesh) nothing good dwells; for to will present with me, but how to perform what is good I do not find.  For the good that I will to do, I do not do; but the evil I will not to do, that I practice.   Now if I do what I will not to do, it is no longer I who do it, but sin that dwells in me.  I find then a law, that evil is present with me, the one who wills to do good.  I delight in the law of God according to the inward man.  But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members.  O wretched man that I am!  Who will deliver me from this body of death?  I thank God – through Jesus Christ our Lord!  So then, with my mind I myself serve the law of God, but with the flesh the law of sin.”

Journal Entry 1

                                                                  Monday, April 4th 2011

On Monday  April, 4th  I felt the leading of the Holy Spirit to call Michael “Dad” Plemmons to pray.  I asked him if I could pray for him in the Spirit.  He agreed. I proceeded to pray.  While praying for about 5 minutes or so, the Lord gave me a vision of a forest with a beautiful summit in the distance.  Below, in the valley, I saw a path with Michael and Gene walking towards the mountain.  Each of them had a scroll in hand.  I had an understanding that they were on the way to the Mountain for an important mission.   I explained to Michael I could see the mountain in the distance, covered with snow.  He said, “It’s not covered with snow, but the Glory of GOD.”  At that moment, I had a closer look at summit of the mountain.  Indeed the Glory of God was covering it.  I continued to pray for another few moments, Michael was quiet.  I asked him, “Are you okay?”
 He said, “I’m plastered.” 
I asked, “Are you drunk?”
Michael replied, “I am beyond drunk.  When you have spent as much time in the presence of God as I have, the presence of God is overwhelming.”  I can only imagine what he was speaking about because I have yet to experience this.  I am always curious and fascinated what Michael experiences with God.  It’s beyond my comprehension.
After our brief dialogue, I continued to pray for my beloved mentor and spiritual father.  In my heart, I was praying for relief i for physical suffering he had been enduring throughout the night. While I was praying for his healing, I had another vision.  I found myself in a cave on the mountain of God.  I was standing there looking around.  With my spiritual eyes I could see from a distance everything happening.  The Holy Spirit hovered over me in a cloud (I’ve heard to the cloud as a glory cloud of God).   I could see myself wearing a cream color cloak with a hood that covered my face and hair.     Moments later, I could see Jesus standing next me. He pulled me to himself, cradling me in His arms like an infant or small child, (He is taller than me in comparison.  On earth I’m petite and there I am too) and then he laid me on the ground in a deep rest. 
When Jesus laid me on the ground the Father entered! He began talking to the Savior.  I could not hear what they were saying. I could only see their gestures and body language.  Michael arrived shortly after, with a scroll in hand.  Jesus greeted him with open arms and placed his arm around him like a good friend or brother.  They both sat down against the cave wall observing me laid out on the floor.  They gestured back and forth with one another in comedic manner.  The Father joined them on the floor.  I could see their conversation was pleasant and friendly, often pointing me on the floor.  The Holy Spirit continued hovering over me.  From time to time, I could see human shaped hands reach down towards me from the cloud.  I sensed he was checking up on me to see if I was doing okay.   I was certainly in good company.
On earth, I had finished praying for Michael.  I shared with him the vision I was having.  He confirmed that my experience was similar to his experiences with the Lord.  He had been to the same cave or one just like it.  I sense this was the exact same one he had been to.  He had been here worshiping the Lord.  His cloak was not white like mine, but red.  I’ve seen Michael in the cloak before in the Spirit.  Michael told me that I was in the cave to learn more about the Lord and learn how to just be with Him.  This has been the prayer of my heart for some time. I really want to know the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.  I understand that He has gifted me with prophecy, visions, dreams, exhortation, words of knowledge, spiritual discernment, and many other beautiful gifts to use to build up the body Christ.  However miraculous these gifts are- it does not mean I have truly known the Lord.  It’s helped my faith and helped me understand that God is there and present.  I’d say since 2007, I’ve wanted to know God personally on a much deeper level than I ever have.  Now, I understand nothing compares to love of God.  The Lord is so humble!  Beautiful!  I want to love Him with all my heart and soul.  Everything I have, I want surrendered to Him.  I’ve learned from Gene Markland, Michael Plemmons, and reading the scripture I have absolutely no power to change myself.  The Grace of God truly changes you.  It puts to death the deeds of the flesh, crucifying you to the cross with Jesus, so that you can live out of your spirit and yield to God himself.  Amen to that!  Praise God for His grace!
