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. 


Heavenly Visitations


                                                                Thursday, April 7, 2011

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
