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)


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.
