It’s time to board the ark

In May 2020, when I was fighting spiritual warfare for God, God showed me enclosed in a beautiful, transparent dome with a blue sheen. I understand that this is protective cover God gives to His saints. I can still fight and engage the world without obstruction, but the evil powers of the world were not able to attack me when I was encased in the protective shield of God.

The beautiful transparent dome with a blue sheen followed me when I walk. It felt light and refreshing as high mountain air and I hardly noticed it. But whenever an enemy tried to attack me, even from behind, the dome encased my surroundings like an invisible hard shield. As God made the spiritual covering, the material was strong and impenetrable to spiritual and physical enemies.

When I looked at my family, I saw that they too were encased in the dome of God. I did not see how they received the dome as it seems that they had done nothing in prayer warfare to receive it. I understood that out of the graciousness of His heart God provided similar protective covering to my family and assets when I was engaged in spiritual warfare for Him.

Over the next few months, God would continue to use the analogy to help me understand more His protective modern-day ark.

In Aug 2020, my vision opened with dark grey scenes of a world rapidly breaking down. On a smoky city street, I saw different groups of rioters, looters, police and protestors. Violent anarchy broke out on the streets. A car overturned with an arid smell of burning, sounds of horns blaring and sirens.

It was chaos as a violent, angry frenzy possessed some groups. They were besides themselves, emotional, violent and angry. I saw the faces of some civilians. They looked afraid and worried. I saw a father pull his teenage children to his side to protect them.

It was difficult to stay safe. There was confusion as one did not know where to go to be safer. Even those who thought they were safe in their own property encountered problems when some violent groups marched up to their doorstep and started harassment, trying to provoke retaliation.

God gently switched my perspective and I saw a Christian family. They were having dinner in their home. It was a peaceful and warm environment. I was surprised at the difference from the world outside. I saw them praying earnestly, saying grace. I saw that this family was enclosed in the protective dome of God that I described in my first vision. I knew that this dome was God’s protection for His own.

  3. Mission: Limited time for ingathering of saints
  4. Sequence of attack: 1. Warriors 2. Paramedics & Supply Chain 3. Evangelists & Apostles 4. Shepherds & Teachers
  5. Send out and recalled by Holy Spirit, complete obedience

Kindly refer to illustration and accompanying text:

  • Army formation like a fan shape
  • Believers organised in bands with different assignments
  • Outermost band of believers with Warrior assignments
  • Band of warriors move in tandem. Advanced as one military unit in steps.
  • Advanced and invaded the land by spiritual warfare
  • Movement coordinated by the Holy Spirit, made up of remnant army, believers who overcome
  • Manifested glory of Lion of Judah, great power and anointing upon this movement.
  • Demonic hosts backed off and retreated when they saw the army of God advance
  • Demonic hosts did not dare to attack because they saw the great power of God. They left the lands which they were ravaging.
  • Enemy stayed at fringes, not daring to attack but did not completely disappear. They waited.
  • Part of land was clear of demons for army of God to move in
  • Many casualties lying on the ground, made up of those who hated God and those whose hearts are open to receive the Word of God
  • Band of warriors stopped advancing and held the ground
  • War trumpet / shofar sounded for next move. Holy Spirit issued orders for Paramedics and Supply Chain to move in
  • Paramedics were professionally trained and efficient. Sprang into action, well prepared with equipped first aid box.
  • Streamed into fields two by two then separated. Focused with no fear, they head straight for injured humans on ground
  • Headed straight for those with Diamond Hearts to save.
  • Demonic hosts would be held back but for a season.
  • When the shofar / trumpet next sounded, anyone working in the fields would have to return immediately for the season for ingathering was over
  • Everyone worked as fast as they could to gather when we could
  • Supply chain (backend) in army were packing production lines as fast as they could
  • They packed medical supplies, first aid, bandages, blankets, food, Bibles, etc. into boxes for dispatch onto the fields
  • Supply chain are Christians with secular jobs. God blessed them and they gave great practical resources for the work of God.
  • God emphasized to me two times sequence 1. Warriors 2. Paramedics & Supply Chain 3. Evangelists & Apostles 4. Shepherds & Teachers
  • We demonstrated God’s love to the world by meeting their practical needs then spiritual needs
  • Evangelists led people to truth of God and conversion
  • Those with an apostolic anointing planted home churches in end days
  • Shepherds and pastors looked after the development and nurturing of new Christians who will form the 2nd wave army
  • It was like God has a Cup to measure the number of new Christians added to the kingdom. If we manage to add the number of new Christians above the line in the Cup to overflow, we were successful in our mission.
  • When the war trumpet/ shofar next sounded, we would have to leave the field immediately
  • Any wheat that was not yet gathered into the storehouse of God will be spoiled and burned together with the weeds eventually
  • In all things we have to follow and obey the instructions of Holy Spirit and not depend on ourselves or our own understanding or obstinacy
  • Insisting to stay on after the time was over would bring danger to yourself with no results
  • I understand the Holy Spirit has plans for the next wave army but I was not given any insights and I do not think that I will be a part of that
  • To lift up (the work of God) and to put down whenever God called is to ensure that the work sanctified is clean, of God and not for the fame of any man

Vision of Bride with a sword

In Sep 2020, God gave me a vision of the bride of Christ.

I saw each true believer who has overcome, represented by a small dot. I saw the body of Christ made up of millions and millions of dots. Together the dots came together and form the shape of a woman, hovering over the earth. I recognize her as the bride of Christ, the true church, the remnant which will arise in the end days. Her hand was made up of dots, each representing a true believer. Her body was made up of dots, her legs were made up of dots. In this way, no one part of her body was more important than the other. The head was as important as the legs, as important as the hands, etc.

I saw that each of us, with our unique gifts and our life experiences and our failures was important to form the entire body of Christ. The true believers were washed with the blood of Christ, burned with the Holy Spirit fire, purified and holy. There was no debris or corruption in the bride because she overcome, she was pure and holy.

When the body of believers came together in this way, each person loving God more than himself or herself, putting the interest of God first, the Holy Spirit power was upon the group. I saw from the body of the woman projected out the light of Christ, manifested the ferocious Lion of Judah. The glory and light of God shone out of her. The magnificent image of the Lion of Judah projecting out of the church, startled and shook the world because they have never seen anything quite like it.

I saw the band of demons representing the kingdom of darkness, were startled and afraid when they saw the true church in this way. I realized that they were not afraid of the woman but rather, the manifestation of the Lion of Judah that came to life out of her. The demons recognize the Lion of Judah. He is Jesus Christ, the Lord of heaven and earth. They were instantly afraid and wary because they knew that they were tyrants and usurpers, and Jesus Christ was the rightful king. They were taken aback that God would endow His bride with so much power.

I saw that a mighty and great, gleaming sword, clean and sharp, was put in the hand of bride of Christ. God has given her His sword and entrusted her to wield His authority on earth. I knew that this mighty army of God would accomplish God’s purposes on earth for a season. The demons hung back and stayed a distance from the woman, watching her warily. They did not dare attack or come near her for a while, because they were afraid of the great power of God.

Puzzle pieces that don’t fit

A simple and intimate word from God during our daily walk. Hope that it will encourage someone.

Recently I saw myself putting together a jigsaw puzzle that was 3/4 complete. I was holding onto small pieces of the puzzle, trying to figure out which pieces went where. After I spent a few hours with little progress and mounting frustration, the Lord gently told me to change my perspective. I sat back and looked at the picture from a larger overview perspective.

It was then I realized that in the past I had installed 5-6 pieces that clearly did not belong to the picture that I was putting together of my life. These pieces were dark and ominous. They do not belong to my picture, which was beautiful and clear light. I realized that someone, whether he was also deceived by the devil or of malicious intent, had handed them to me in the past. Without thinking, I assumed that they were meant for me and tried to fit them into my life. They wouldn’t fit in properly so they were awkward and jutting out even though I had tried my best to cram them in.

The Lord told me to remove these erroneous pieces. If I left them there, they would disrupt the beautiful picture that the Lord meant for my life. Initially I hesitated, as I was worried that my picture will look worse with missing gaps. Although they were wrong, I had expended many years and effort and was used to the discomfort of their wrong position.

The Lord gently told me that if I do not take them out, He would not be able to give me the right pieces. As they had demonic roots, I allowed God to burn them off my life with the blood of Jesus. I thought that I will be sad as I had not know anything else. However I only felt a great lifting and loosening of burden when they were gone.

After the Lord removed them, immediately He handed me a perfect and excellent piece. Looking at the shape and design, I recognize it as the piece that fitted me perfectly. The Lord had the perfect piece for me all this time but He waited until I removed the wrong one before He handed it to me. I am now overjoyed because I can complete the beautiful picture of my life that the Lord wants to do for me.
