The lord gave me a picture.
I saw a lovely Christian woman with beautiful earings on. The earings were diamond and ruby. She was very elegant. She was sitting with her head slightly down, and I could see (on her other ear) all the jewels had been removed. She took them off to talk on the phone. I thought to my self they were her Crown Jewels. I looked down at her hand and saw an old land line phone. I saw how she took her “Crown Jewels” off to have a conversation. I remembered back in the day ladies would take their earings off to talk on the phone. I said, “Lord, What are you showing me here?”
Crown Jewels belong to the House of the Royals. They come out of the palace vaults to be worn by Kings and Queens for special occasions. As Christians we are of a Royal Priesthood.
1 Peter 2:9 King James Version (KJV)
But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his everlasting light.
This Lady, this beautiful woman, represents all of us in Christ! His Bride.
The special event where we wear our Crown Jewels, is our salvation that we celebrate every day of our lives.
Hebrews 2 :1-3
Therefore we ought to give the more earnest heed to the things which we have HEARD, lest at any time we should let them slip. For if the word spoken by angels was stedfast, and every transgression and disobedience received a just recompense of reward; How shall we escape, if we neglect so great a salvation; which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was CONFIRMED unto us by them that HEARD him; God also bearing them witness, both with signs and wonders, and with divers miracles, and GIFTS [treasures] of the Holy Ghost, according to his own will ..
She removed her Crown Jewels to have a conversation through an old land line phone.
Now days, we talk through the airways. In this vision airways would represent a spiritually uplifted conversation. But this was an earth bound line of communication. It was earthy. We always need to remember where we come from, and who we are, in Christ. Ladies and Gentlemen of the Kingdom, can you remember the last conversation you had, where you actually stepped down from your blessed position in Christ Jesus, just to meet eye to eye?
I think we all can! The Lord doesn’t want us to shed off what He paid such a high price for, that HE now has adorned us with. The (robe of righteousness, and mantle of our call) over lines of communication that would be cut off by the other end, if we let ourselves be genuinely His, in the sight of all men.
Sadly, many tolerate conditions imposed upon them by unbelievers, and Christians in unbelief.
Desiring that we edit our conversation to leave out what makes them feel uncomfortable. Do you have a relationship like that?
Whether the land line represents worldly conversations, or Christian communication that rejects the treasure we possess knowing Him; or is filled with gossip and tale bearing- we need to DISCONNECT that line!
Should we veil the sparkle of our Lord’s eye? Should we cap the flame of HIS Spirit to enjoy what we think is Christian fellowship? Should we hide the lamp of our salvation under a table?
Hunger for God appreciates every drop of joy that emanates from HIS people! Every ounce of love come from the Father, in all its forms; fruits and gifts of the Spirit, mantles and mandates of the KING! Let your light so shine among men! Fellowship is like a flowing river, it inspires; it spurs one another on to GOOD works. It should not be competitive, but rejoices in the truth, and seeing Jesus aglow in others.
Relationships that push against that, are earthbound religious connections that have no need, or desire, for more of Jesus. Their commonality may be Christianity but it may not be the LORDSHIP of Jesus Christ in their life. They may enjoy talking about CHURCH but initiating a Spirit filled, or Spirit led conversation, becomes awkward or one sided. The believer often feels like they just cannot connect with this person that is suppose to be a Christian. They will often find themselves compromising to keep the peace or keep the connection. The earth bound conversation the Bride of Christ was having over the phone- required HER to bow to a lesser authority than the one whom has redeemed her. Any relationship that pulls us into a soulish line of communication is exactly that, soulish.
We need to disconnect from lines of communication that are not Holy Spirit inspired; and rather, upgrade to a connection that benifits the thirsty and hungry soul that needs what we have, or shares in it. Kindred relationships that, simply, love us at our best! As we should them. Desperate souls soak in God’s love! Fellowship with the poor in spirit, is spending time with some one that never has enough of Jesus! Mathew 5:3 says, “For theirs is the kingdom of God.” They shall obtain it in their hunger, and humility.
Another type of relationship that turns into an earth bound connection is one that has a political nature to it. I’ve said this before and it is absolutely true. Any one effected by the power of peer pressure, is under political control. Entertaining that land line is a land mine of compromise, that always leads to hypocrisy. False humility, and shallow relationships, because the Saint of God was forced to take off their Crown Jewels in order to even CONNECT. It’s a pay to play kind of deal, that secures power over unified assembles in their fellowship and worship, supporting those that comply to its control, and pulls down those that don’t; neutralizing, if not paralyzing Spirit filled praise and worship that brings down the glory of God, in our meetings. Often times resistance against the moves of God are not from with out, but from with in.
Peer pressure rarely swings anyone into a positive zone. This is why we know it is usually demonic oppression behind it.
The woman I saw was holding the phone in her hand, by the twisting cord, as it dangled to her side. We need to hang up on bad company and disconnect with that old religious python, that hates the Crown Jewels of the people of God. Relentlessly, dissecting, and debating, the word of truth with, “Has God said?” Let your light shine and reconnect with the salt and light of the earth. Avoiding vain babblings.
Another thing we may be in the habit of doing, is taking a step down from our position in Christ, to give ear to counselors, that have less counsel than we do! Don’t tolerate cords that keep you bound to a line of communication that is spiritually bankrupt! That wastes your time and life. Never cover your lamp with the prideful lying shades of false humility. It is a temptation come from an accusation of Satan, designed to side line the Saints of God, every time they try to step out in obedience to their gift and call! That old Pharasutical remark, even Jesus had to endure, is implied by that prince and power of the air, saying “Who do you think YOU are, we know where you come from?” Familiar with the short comings of the saints but never familiar with their gift and anointing. Aware of their humanity but resistant to the Spirit of Christ in them.
Therefore do not be partakers with them
Ephesians 5:6-13 Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things comes the wrath of God on the children of disobedience. Be not you therefore partakers with them. For you were sometimes in darkness, but now are you light in the Lord: walk as children of light: (For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;) Proving what is acceptable to the Lord. And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them. For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret. But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatever does make manifest is light.
Don’t take your Crown Jewels off to satisfy a religious spirit, who has rejected the wonderful details of their own great salvation. We were born to bring GOD glory. Wear the garments of HIS praise, be of HIS Royal Priesthood, peculiar. The event is your Salvation. The Crown Jewels are the gifts of His promise, and graces HE has adorned YOU with! The light reflected from what HE has given you, is HIS light. It will draw to Him them that love the LIGHT.

And the LORD will create on every dwelling place of mount Zion, and on her assemblies, a cloud and smoke by day, and the shining of a flaming fire by night …
And there shall be a tabernacle for a shadow in the day time from the heat, and for a place of refuge, and for a shelter from storm and from rain.

According to the encyclopedia most modern ponies were once horses that developed a small stature because they lived on the margins of livable horse habitat. A pony will always be a pony but originally it was a horse. Now bred to be different breeds. A pony is a dwarfed horse because it lived in an environment that could not sustain it. So it adapted. A horse in dreams often represent power. In this dream I’m about to share, remember, it ends well for them who endure to the end. Who yields to their maker, that He can draw out from them, the power of their potential, in Christ.
There are religious strongholds in the land that dwarf the development of God’s people by quenching and resisting the Holy Spirit. Having a form of Godliness but denying the power there of. Clouds, the bible says, without rain. This condition creates a religious environment, that cannot sustain Christian growth and true maturity. Rather, it is producing the faint of heart, and unprepared disciples, that will have difficulty withstanding days of difficulty. Simply because their full potential has never had the opportunity to develop past getting saved, and on to abundant life training. Where our circumstances don’t dictate to us how we live our life in Christ, but our life in Christ demands circumstances to bow and serve Him. All should be filled and endued with power from on high. Acts 2, all should know their authority as believers. Quenching the Spirit in our meetings creates dependence, not disciples. Few anointings have the opportunity to rise up, and be trained in Spirit led training. God calls them out. Generations of a powerless gospel have produced a sub species of Christian that cannot break from its mind set, but for God! If a pastor wants to know the health of his congregation, and their strength and trust in God, all he has to do is count those medicated on pills, struggling with sin, and addictions; those living on government assistance, and the in firmed. If a congregation is sitting under the restraints of an institutionalize Christianity, there will be many in that state of living. I’m not trying to be harsh or judgmental here, but we have to look at the truth in regard to the condition of the Church. Who and what she is dependent on. Christ Church should not be medicated, broke, and dieing.
Jeremiah 12:5 “If you have run with the footmen, and they have wearied you, Then how can you contend with horses? And if in the land of peace, In which you trusted, they wearied you, Then how will you do in the floodplain of the Jordan?
Only God can stretch a horse out of a pony. But they will have to leave the pony farm, to become their full potential. Ponies are desired for Children. They are not desired for battle. If we as pastors are raising up those that will endure to the end, that is commendable. Let us go further, and seek to train them to run with endurance, to the end; this great race set before us.
Zechariah 10:3 (AMP) My anger is kindled against the shepherds [who are not true shepherds], And I shall punish the male goats (leaders); For the LORD of hosts has visited His flock, the house of Judah, And will make them like His majestic horse in battle.
I had a prophetic dream after a believer’s meeting in our home town. I feel that in it is a word for believers who live in areas of the Bible Belt. My phone rang sitting on the night table, (like it wasn’t a dream) and I picked it up and there was a loud beast of a voice on the other end screeching at me. I knew it was a rulership of darkness over the area, and we must have rattled its cage the night before. I knew this had something to do with our intercession for the city. I couldn’t make out any words, the call came from main street downtown. While the voice continued screeching, I knew I needed to keep talking, and speaking the word, and I could tell the teachers anointing was in it. The voice on the phone seemed to be the embodiment, of all the push back felt in this area since the Lord’s assignment 8 years ago. After quite a while the voice tamed down and became more and more human sounding, and I began to make out the words it was saying.
The short of it was that a demonic controller named RIFT, come out from the root of rebellion, was raging against our intercession, and ministry of the spoken word, over the phone! A prince and power of the air! The voice was very animated, and boastful. Very opinionated, and letter of the law, while acting as an illegal operative, against God’s people. Wise in its own eyes, while an ignorant form of bible knowledge poured out of RIFT’s mouth, and it was divisive. Rift’s human agents resist the Holy Spirit, spread legalism, and seed discord.
1 Samuel 15:23 For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness as idolatry.
All I could think of was that the end game for those bound by this darkness was under developed christians, dwarfed in their potential by being made deaf, dumb, and blind. A spirit of rebellion that found a place to become a stronghold in a deeply divided land. A land with a church on every corner. Rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, or divination.
The night before we were praying, and repenting, and repenting for God’s people, even mentioning ancient divisions so intense that blood was spilled on the ground. Where there is division and strife there is every evil work. If strongholds of God are not lifting oppression off the land and establishing Christ, the Living Word, then darkness remembers its abode. The church cannot retreat with out devils seeking back their haunts. Seven times with seven more. If divisions plagued the land before, they will again, until that power is broken. Spirits move in because ground is lost, not taken. Jesus said OCCUPY until I come. Not regress. When evil spirits trespass it is time to remind the enemy of our inheritance, that we have one, and walk in it.
As I was on the phone I walked the five miles to town towards where the phone caller was calling from, decreeing the WORD the whole time. Until I came to a fuel station, and stood near a gas pump, and saw a gas tank-truck start to tip over. Right at a CONVENIENT store, where they sold fuel. Think about it. This voice of rebellion was still running its mouth. I cried out, run!
The fuel station exploded. It was like I went down to see a fire ignite right there where that Satanic stronghold called me from. It was there I snatched from the flames two living beings. Fire poured out to the ground like a river. I saved what I could so that it wouldn’t be destroyed by the fire, and escaped into a steel walled building. It had steel, riveted doors, and concrete. It was a fire proof shelter, and I headed up to the second floor. I saw a huge garbage disposal. It “contained” the fire as flames rolled in from outside. Burning trash only, and the place was like a furnace. The consuming fire from the fuel station, was transformed into a refining fire, as the fire proof structure brought controls to the inferno, burning trash only.
Jesus-Luke 12:49 Amp
“I have come to cast fire on the earth; and how I wish that it were already kindled!”
There were others there nearer to the furnace withstanding the flames. Even closer than I. They were operating equipment that kept the fire contained, burning trash only. They were intercessors, and Angels. I felt bad for the two animals I saved from the fire. A pony and bunny, because in some ways I brought them closer to the heat. Even though they were saved from the fire. The pony was very uncomfortable. The fire wasn’t effecting me, but the bunny passed out. The two are a picture of how important it is to make ourselves ready, so we can endure to the end. So we won’t be the faint of heart, but rather actively involved as end times intercessors. What good are we if we pass out having little courage, or like the pony, trying so hard to bear the heat, but barely able to even move? The intercessors, interceding in the furnace room, narrowed the burning down to refuse only.
We have only a short time left to contend for ground, that it become a habitat for growth. That God can pull the horse out of the pony, no longer stunted by a powerless religion.
“I [the Lord] have set you as an assayer [O Jeremiah] and as a tester [of the ore] of My people, That you may know and analyze their acts.” They are all the worst [kind] of [stiff-necked, godless] rebels, Going around spreading slander. They are [not gold and silver ore, but] bronze and iron; They are all corrupt.
The bellows blow fiercely,
The lead is consumed by the fire;
In vain they continue refining,
But the wicked are not separated and removed. They call them rejected silver [only dross, without value], Because the Lord has rejected them. ( They are burning dross only).
Because the seed fell on rocky, weedy, shallow ground.
The disciples came to him and asked, “Why do you speak to the people in parables?” Though seeing, they do not see; though hearing, they do not hear or understand. In them is fulfilled the prophecy of Isaiah: “‘You will be ever hearing but never understanding; you will be ever seeing but never perceiving. For this people’s heart has become calloused; they hardly hear with their ears, and they have closed their eyes. Otherwise they might see with their eyes, hear with their ears, understand with their hearts and turn, and I would heal them.’
We have to break out of what confines us, always seeking for more of God. Being so hungry and thirsty for the bread and water of life, that we break through the four walls of false religion. Pressing in to the upward call of God. Not allowing ourselves to become acclimated to a culture or environment that quenches the Holy Spirit ever again. This would restrict anyone’s spiritual growth. John, who water baptized, said Jesus will baptize you with the Holy Ghost and fire. Continue to:

12/28/2017 Formally titled: A City In Asia
Proverbs 22:3 A prudent man foresees evil and hides himself, But the simple pass on and are punished.
Prophetic warning for a city somewhere in Asia.
In a dream I was a westerner in an Asian city. Let me describe this city to you. It was an area like an older downtown. Very active with a lot of people coming and going. There were a few Caucasian’s there, I could say from America
but I don’t know, nothing I saw gave me a clue from where they came. I’m thinking, perhaps, English is not a barrier. These were not, necessarily, tourists. I came out of my apartment down some narrow stairs to the street, it wasn’t a new building, but well kept-up with clean side walks. Things seemed close and compacted together. There was nothing that looked third world around me. But the street seemed to be teeming with market activity. Lots of food venders and restaurants. In this dream those that lived in (what looked like a down town) made it a habit to step outside and procure meals for the day.
The open market had all kinds of fresh food, and even pre-made noodles. The vender would pull up a measure and bag them for the recipient to go warm them up later at home for a meal. Also, I could just walk across the street and go into a café and eat there, instead. In fact, this was what I had just done before stopping at the market place. Also, it appeared to be a pedestrian dominated area. I noticed the outdoor market was in the sun. It seemed the street was not in deep shade of high rises, nor was it dank, or smoggy. I didn’t see signs of impoverishment. I found my self fourth in line to purchase something from a vender. I noticed I was wearing a bright orange t-shirt. I saw a few other westerners wearing these shirts. It was a shorts friendly day outside. I never wear orange and I never eat noodles. I don’t wear a watch and I am female. So, I’m not myself in this dream. I have never been any where in an Asian country. I did think I could be some where in Hong Kong, but I know better than to assume things like that because I have been mistaken before. I saw the mall massacre in Nairobi, Kenya just 24 hours before it occurred, September 21, 2013; but thought I was in Syria because of days spent praying for that region, but I was in Nairobi in the aftermath of a mall attack. When I saw the news photos of the building where it happened, I knew then it was Nairobi. I’m not going to do that again. Nevertheless, my mind may not have known the place but God knew and prayers went up, I’m sure less happened there than was planned because of the saints of God who pray for this world. I would have done better to describe the floor tiling in the mall, and the landscape out doors. I have to say if the Lord wanted me to know He would have told me, for He has.
Again, I’m being detailed to shed light on prophetic processes.
Anyway, the people native to this place were Asians and lighter skinned than say people of Cambodia or Thailand. As far as westerners and the people native to this area there were no other cultural differences in dress, mostly casual to business casual on this day. More like Saturday go to market casual … In the dream I received my goods from the market and turned to the building, where my apartment was, to take home, for dinner, later.
This is when I began to hear a narrative run through my mind as it were from the Father. He said, “What would you do if something happened and you would not be able to collect your meal from these each day?” The thought stunned me because I realized my dependency on the vendors and cafes’. That really I didn’t have any store to speak of, food or water, that would last more than just a day. I wondered at my recklessness in such a world we live in. I began to think of scenarios that would suddenly stop commerce, and felt the panic of such a thing. The scene changed and I was in a crisis. I didn’t see destruction. But the venders and shoppers were gone. The businesses were closed. The dream ended with my character, back before the crisis putting together an emergency kit and stocking his cupboards. Some items gathered were light for flight and non cumbersome.
When I woke up I knew the orange t-shirt meant a warning for foreigners in this place. Particularly, those clearly of the Caucasian race, I don’t know why other foreign races were not pointed out.
Orange in nature and in the civilized world is used to warn. Why they were wearing orange may be because being non native born, without family in the area, they would be more at risk. Being caucasian clearly pointed out one as foreign. Public opinion can turn quickly in politically tumultuous times. For example when the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor, Japanese Americans were taken to concentration camps for national security purposes. I’m also thinking that the age group in the dream, if they were Americans, they have never had an interruption of basic food supplies in their life time. They may not understand the impact world events could have on them over night. That the vendors in that market, don’t necessarily, live in town; but, come there to sell and buy their goods- their risk could be less than those dependent on the downtown being supplied. For many, living downtown was a trendy pursuit to do so, by young native-born professionals, and westerners alike.
One other note was that I clearly saw a young Asian woman wearing a yellow light pull over sweater. I thought of the act of yielding, waiting … I thought for some, such crises would require preparation to wait it out. She walked wearing a blouse and sweater. This a casual sign of readiness in the event of atmospheric change. So, when the temperature changes for her she will have more flexibility to respond, as a born citizen of this region. I would say if this dream has any warning in it, that seemed to come out of the clear blue sky … An event in such a place would be very trying if not dangerous to not have a plan. Really, it should be a habit for everyone to consider a plan B, in order to survive, or at least not have to make choices, less desirable out of desperation. Which is another topic God’s been speaking to me about altogether, to remind His people what we trust Him for, and how much we rely upon Him, even when times are good, this is what will bring us stability and presence of mind when times and circumstances suddenly change. Wisdom is justified by her children. As Solomon said, look at the ant. I don’t know why I had this dream. But because what God has shown me over the last three decades with Somalia, Mozambique, Syria, Nairobi, and more recently the Congo Ebola out-break; I can only pray, warn, and document. *
Deana Barnes 12/29/2017 11:59 am.
*Again just a day or two after this dream, I had another: Two or Three young Caucasian men on a city street, thirsty and faint with hunger. It seemed like some kind of dust kick up, but the scene was not the same, now they are more away from the downtown area, and when I say downtown it could have been a trendy older city street near a more modern area. Where young Caucasian foreigners were now among a mixture of city and country people and there seems to be a bench. One of the young men is sitting on it exhausted. With just the clothes on his back, moving through a scene that seems desperate. I don’t know what this dream is all about but there is a wisdom in it.
When we are wise in our ways desperation cannot take us places we would rather not go. This young man was living vicariously. Moment to moment like many people do. Wouldn’t it be ridiculous to have to run to the streets in the middle of a crisis looking for water, when one could have stayed where they were at until things settled down; or, had a readiness pack to take with them? This is true with the condition of our souls, we can have assurance in Christ now, we can be in a place (spiritually) prepared for what ever comes. Even knowing what lies ahead and how to prepare. First and for most our souls need to be made ready for Christ’s return.
Beyond that, if God’s warnings are needed for spiritual preparation only, why was the Prophet Agabus used by the Spirit to warn of a famine during the time of the first Apostles? Why did Barnabas and Saul bring famine relief to the believers in Judea? Furthermore, if people think prophets are not suppose to speak of future events in this church era; but, only to edify, exhort, and comfort, then they need to study Acts 11:27, and Acts 28:27. As well as consider John’s book: The Revelation Of Jesus Christ. Or, take my view of it all and perhaps broaden their understanding of what edification, exhortation, and comfort, of the saints, all entails. In the world we live in today, I have seen tragedy in the lives of God’s people, because they viewed a prophet’s prophetic warning as a negative report, and would not receive it. I’ve seen God give a two year advance warning against cancer that was called an evil report, two years later the cancer was discovered too late. Had they just checked it out … On the other hand there was a family warned to begin canceling out an assignment against their daughter’s life. They began to pray over their adult child, and God miraculously spared their daughter’s life in a bicycle/ car accident just a week later. No lasting injuries. What the Church should do is go back to the pattern of a Jerusalem council to seek God for wisdom, and resolve, when visions, dreams, words and prophecies are released to the body, to get specific answers from God on how to move forward. Why not set up a prophetic prayer council among the body, to process all words given? The bible says let the prophets stand and judge! So let them. To confirm a word, seek on it, or receive of a move of God’s Spirit, or take actions to avoid adversity. But we don’t really do that much any more … We just stand back and watch to see if what was prophesied “comes to pass.”
Church, when are we going to activate our power and influence in the earth? It is time to rise and shine. Let’s become the people of Isaiah 60:1, 61:1, 62:1; in the Earth. Pastors stop paralyzing your people with fear of prophets, and prophecy, and begin teaching God’s sheep how to process the prophetic word. Most camp grounds and parks do not want people throwing together a pit fire for themselves, so they designate a safe place to contain one, with all the provision needed. They even provide the kindling to get one going! This is facilitating a fire and putting in safe guards so no one gets burned. But even though they know the Holy Spirit manifests as fire, some pastors never set up provision that will keep it going and make it last. Too many skiddish leaders just hope God won’t send a fire starter, so they have that fire extinguisher out and ready the minute some one gets too happy. If they continue in that mentality, one day … One day a fire will break out and they will have to be the mop up crew, after the fact. That is disorder because no one thought ahead. If we can’t manage revival fires on a singular scale how in the world will they be administrated on a city wide scale. Why, some pastors get a cold sweat when they hear some one break out in tongues. The least of all the gifts. Jesus said the Son of Man will return, but He asked a question, “Will He find faith in the earth when He comes? Will the Church be prepared to meet him? Will they be busy stewarding the returns on His great Life investment He poured out for all mankind? Or will they answer, “We were afraid? We not only buried our own talents but every one entrusted to us had to throw theirs in the hole too!” That is not His way. Wisdom is known by her children. If it gets messy it’s not yours to put it out, but it is yours to steward what could become a perpetual flame! He’s coming back to collect dividends on what has been entrusted, will the church of God be empty handed?
Back to the dream, God wants His people to be in a state of readiness. To be as wise as servants and harmless as doves.
“But be sure of this, that if the head of the house had known at what hour the thief was coming, he would not have allowed his house to be broken into.
** Whether this dream is a word of wisdom for all of us to keep in mind the times we are living in, or a specific warning regarding an event to come. It can be taken as a teaching scenario to be vigilant and sober, to watch and pray. To live in a state of spiritual readiness at all times. While I am not a prepper, my strongest advice would be that if our life style (aside from Jesus’s direct command, in Mathew 10:10, to go without purse, script, or sword) hurls us into the street, out of desperation, shortly after an event or crisis, then we cannot possibly be living our lives with intent according to the wisdom of God, specifically as it is written in the book of Proverbs.
Give not sleep to your eyes, nor slumber to your eyelids. Deliver yourself as a roe from the hand of the hunter, and as a bird from the hand of the fowler. Go to the ant, you sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise: Which having no guide, overseer, or ruler, provided her meat in the summer, and gathers her food in the harvest. How long will you sleep, O sluggard? when will you arise out of your [lack of awareness] sleep? Yet a little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to sleep: So shall your poverty come on at once, [like a woman in travail], and your want as an armed man.

An Ancient Pilgrimage Genesis 24
Keep an account of Her. Her going out and coming in. Watch her as you watch for HIM, more. THE one chosen, the one HE loves. The called out for, to have and to Hold. Whom he ransomed for a GREAT price. See her, how she has made herself ready. The one, as the story is told, whom GOD spoke of. HIS servant met HER at the well. She drew for him of the deep waters. The ONE chosen by the Father. Whom was pre known; kin of His Kin.
The one LAUGHTER, He Has gone down now, at evening tide before they arrive.
She lifts up her eyes and sees HIM, there is a catch in her breath as the bride enquired of the servant (as she had already lit off the camel) “Who is this?” The servant replies, “This is my sovereign.”
The original Hebrew words of this story of Isaac and Rebekah paint a beautiful encounter. The sun is setting as Isaac walks out into the field to meditate. It is reasonable to believe this was something he did quite often. This time, He saw coming an entourage of camels, the servant, and his servant’s, servants. The bride, her nurse, and maidens. The Hebrew word for damsels suggest children of an unknown age from infancy to adolescence, the root meaning is not necessarily female, but rather child servants. Boys and Girls. Rebekah, the delightful young woman that she was, revealed her personality at the well where she met, and accommodated Abrahams servant, and his camels, with their fill of water. We can draw a safe conclusion that Rebekah was full of life, very engaging, hospitable, and played the big sister to the less fortunate of those around her. After all, the well was the place to be for a lovely girl like Rebekah. No doubt, her little brood of admirers were gathered in the entourage, to accompany Rebekah; to grow up as her servants in the household, and shadow of the renown dwelling among the nomadic, unmistakably identifiable, even from a distance, the place of refreshing, benevolence, and hospitality … The house, the mobile city known as SARAH’S Tent.
Sarah’s tent, renown and honored (as the original language of the scriptures describe) seemed to be more than just a dwelling among nomads. It is a picture of New Jerusalem. Sarah’s tent was a sight to be seen as soon as it came in view, gauged against the horizon.
The original Hebrew wording gives us this picture of their first encounter. Rebekah sees Isaac and the scriptures says she lited off the camel, truer to the original language, she actually dismounted the camel so enthralled and focused upon Isaac that she sort of fell into her dismount, and then regained her composure, while learning from the servant (who is a type and shadow of the Holy Ghost) that the man Rebekah sees standing in the field to greet them is her beloved. She then veiled herself in order to be identified as the one whom Father Abraham had sent for. Of all who stood before him, the veil signified his bride as the ONE among them who was free born. Another picture in type and shadow, that Rebekah was there of her own freewill, as all are, in Christ.
The account of Rebekah’s response reveals a sense of dignity and pedigree, after the servant confirmed what her heart already knew, she immediately pulls together her covering garments for modesty, after her unassisted dismount; at the same time, the Hebrew words describe she covered the hollows of her form, and stood up to present herself as any lady would, modestly, yet purposely, plumping the folds of the garment to give hint of her femininity; as, one commentary suggested. It is also mentioned in another commentary that she prostrated herself before Isaac as Abigail did David; however, the brief passage leaves that open for discussion. It is a gesture beyond what is required but who would deny her that response? The next scene (we are told) is when Isaac takes Rebekah into his mother’s tent and was then comforted from Sarah’s death.
Sarah’s name broken down in pictograms of the ancient Hebrew alphabet contains a “hidden” name or description of Sarah’s life; it reads like this: “The one who saw two great destructions.” This enables us to look at Sarah whose name directly means princess, as a type and shadow of that Kingdom abode, from where the scripture says “Only with thine eyes shall you see the reward of the wicked.” From a distance only, did Sarah see the smoke of Sodom and Gomorra, as it will be for those who rest in that heavenly ECONOMY of hospitality, and benevolence; wrapped in the arms of a greater promise that of Abraham. This world’s two great destructions- one by water, and the other by fire, will become a distant memory as the old order of things pass away, and all things become new. Sarah’s passing takes with her the memory of the sorrows of this world.
This ending the picture of Christ meeting His Church, the Sojourning Bride, safely handed over to Him, by the guide of all guides; even, the precious Holy Spirit that completed His work. The lovely lady, was kept in His unbroken custody to present before the Kings of Kings, and Lord of Lords; His bride, by Her own free will. Her and her entourage, forever. Her personal servant with her, a nurse named Deborah, accompanied her in her journey. The Hebrew name Deborah is translated bee which also, means word. So there you have it, a perfect picture of the bride of Christ brought to Him, safely, by the guidance of the Holy Spirit, with the assistance of the WORD OF LIFE.
Beloved, are we not in that procession this day? Bearing gifts of His own? Onyx stones, and bracelets, little bells upon the priestly hems, and ankles … surely, she has anointed herself with HIS oils and perfume. This journey is a progressive procession of joy, of righteousness, and truth, in the Holy Ghost. This is the BRIDE who made herself ready, who meets Him at the well. Escorted daily in His accommodations, held in His sacred trust, with the WORD OF LIFE in attendance.
Song of Solomon 6:9-10
My dove, my perfect one, is the only one, the only one of her mother, pure to her who bore her. The young women saw her and called her blessed; the queens and concubines also, and they praised her. Who is this who looks down like the dawn, beautiful as the moon, bright as the sun, awesome as an army with banners?”
Song of Songs
“Listen! I hear my love! Look! Here he comes! He’s leaping across the mountains. He’s coming over the hills.
The one who loves me is like an antelope or a young deer. Look! There he stands behind our wall. He’s gazing through the window. He’s peering through the screen. He said to me, ‘Rise up, my love. Come with me, my beautiful one. Look! The winter is past. The rains are over and gone.
Flowers are appearing on the earth. The season for singing has come.
The cooing of doves is heard in our land. The fig trees are producing their early fruit.
The flowers on the vines are giving off their sweet smell.
Rise up and come, my love. Come with me, my beautiful one.’”
..And the SPIRIT and the BRIDE call out, come now! Even come Lord Jesus!
State Of Exposure prophecy of 2017.
All most one year ago, posted here on my WordPress blog, was a prophetic word for 2017. The original post is linked below. I would say it certainly has come to pass. State of Exposure is now (in- retrospect) probably the best way to describe what our country has been going through for the last year. I would venture to say with more to come! Exposures and disclosures. The “me too” movement as of late, sweeping across the nation, contributing to a good measure of what was described as
A spirit of trembling of what would be exposed through the night, while the nations sleeps. Jan. 4, 2017
While the nation is still reeling with the kind of disclosures and exposures that have ended many lifelong careers, and probably a few relationships, so we are just scratching the surface with deeper revelations to come.
Nevertheless, Americans have been more concerned about their misconduct being called out in the workplace, than they are of the menace of North Korea. And the treasonist acts of public officials in our government. Still the word “a spirit of trembling” comes to mind as long as Kim Jong-un, terrorists, and Deep State exists, and by no means not for just Americans. Another word mentioned that was not what you would expect but still makes a profound statement, and that was the fainting Judge prophecy, that you will see in State of Exposure in regard to conviction. Now, at the time I had no idea who that would be, and I have no desire to be a prophet for show business events, but this “happening” is a word in itself, calling a nation out of its idolatry! After googling “fainting judge” it turns out the producer and Judge of the talent show “American Idol” had a life altering event take place after “fainting” in October of this year, prompting the famous judge of “American Idol” to quote: “Change his life style for the sake of his son.”
Is conviction going to prompt us to turn from an American life of raising idols, and rather change our lifestyles to raising our sons? I don’t think I need to go into great detail on how prophetic this Fainting Judge word is. Just read the prophecy. And remember the Spirit of Elijah is doing an end-time work.
The Spirit of Elijah is sent out in the latter days to turn the fathers heart towards their sons .. Mal 4:4-6
So anyway 2018 will be known as the year of aftermath, and consequence, and the notion of cause and effect. A reaping of what has been sowed in the way of sowing to the wind. The life altering events that have taken hold of many in this nation, for reasons beyond exposure but in relation to storms that exposure seems to whip up- just as real storms exist, we have aftermath to contend with in either circumstance. Real or man made. Deserved or undeserved. As 2017 was called the Year of Exposure, so 2018 is going to be known as a year of consequence. While more storms are coming, with their own post traumatic stress to navigate through. Those who trust God unwaveringly, will emerge upon a track of renewal.
This cause and effect is cycling through and manifesting into returns and renewals. For those who have their priorities right and are not the faint of heart.
Remembering in all thing that Jesus is our solid ground. There is no other rock to stand on.

What does God say about slander in the Body of Christ against Christian ministry that has gone before us?
In a world where things are often not what they seem, it is a Christian’s duty to pursue truth. In Christ it’s that one thing obtainable for wanting it. He that is hungry and thirsty for righteousness sake shall be filled. Deception is for those who love not the truth and hate not the lie. When life throws us a set of circumstances out side of our control, such as a destructive storm, or a personal life altering event, the only two things we can really depend on is truth and trust, the truth of God’s word and trust in His promises.
Rebuilding on a firm foundation begins with truth, in the following assessments. In the assessment of damage and estimate of repairs.
After every storm, it is up to us to decide what is salvageable and what is loss. To count the cost of rebuilding. With God no task is insurmountable. No damage un restorable, no impossibility impossible. What limits God is not our lack of strength, or our fear over the circumstances, or even our hurt or anger toward Him. What limits God is our slowness in accepting truth. The truth that what just happened did in fact happen, is not something that can easily be comprehended, as any one who has been in an accident, war zone, or disaster can tell you. Yet the sooner we realize that we just servived the unsurvivable, thanking God in all things, the better positioned we are to minimize further loss and damage by engaging a sound mind in the immediate events around us. This comes easier for those who have already disciplined their mind in prayer and the pursuit of peace as a daily endeavor. All is paramount in accepting what can be done when starting over.
The truth in cause, and the evaluation of viability in what remains. Foundations and infrastructure are often left in the aftermath of a storm, that can be restored.
However, the lesson learned following Hurricane Sandy, teaches us that what we rebuild on, could be a set up for even more devastation. The famous board walk along the New Jersey shore that was badly damaged, was hastily rebuilt only to go up in flames because of faulty wiring, not replaced from the old structure. This could have been avoided by an uncomprimising acceptance of truth in the practice of principles and standards. For example the word of God tells us not to build in the sand, not to patch an old garment with new fabric. Not to put new wine in old wine skins. Asking questions of our standards. Did we build a mud hut in a flood zone? Did we erect a trailer in tornado ally? Did we build a house over a dry creek? Will rebuilding be in vain because of climate change? Will the same material used before be a liability? Should a wood structure be built-in drought stricken “foothills? That is why we have zoning laws. That is why the bible and its standards for living, its rules of engagement, its wisdom in making right decisions, are reasons why we do research, and get are permits, from God to build. So that errors will not be made all over again.
We can’t break new ground with out removing debris. Getting over the fear that something salvageable will be missed. That somehow moving on, means giving up on dreams. At some point, we have to step back, stop picking through our loss, and turn the destruction over to clearance. This is truth in acceptance. To clear the damage. This is letting go and letting God. It is the last decision made concerning the past, and the first decision made towards the future. It is a conscious decision to release what was, and begin to embrace hope for what will be. We can cling to old relics of the past and bring them into our life as a monument of all our yesterdays, or we can fill the walls and shelves of our new day, with the treasures discovered in life’s present lessons and value. Monuments are good at what they do, they remind us to remember lessons learned, in previous journeys. We go to them to do that, but no one should live in a grave yard. Yet, people live in the past in their minds all the time, mourning what could have been, or even what should have been. There is no path of renewal there, only sorrow and regret. But God doesn’t call us to that.
Truth in estimates, the cost of repair, and requirements to rebuild. Truth in resource, having what it takes economically and emotionally.
Being honest in the will to rebuild, and contentment in what was. Asking yourself if rebuilding where it ended is what you really want. The circumstances of life will manage those who refuse to live it truthfully, purposely, and principally. We may have standards, but might live and work in a lawless atmosphere where other people are setting their standards that bring us shame. At some point there may be a time when preservation is not a decision to be made, but a response for survival. When your back yard begins to turn into a mud slide down a ravine there is no time to plan, all you can do is react. What can be noted ahead however, is that structures built on a mountain side are susceptible to mud slides during heavy rain. A husband battling addiction, who is the bread-winner, is that house on the mountain side in a heavy rain. A wife who has a gambling problem that is in charge of paying the mortgage payment is too. Wisdom sees the potential collapse and fault in non principled living, and makes arrangements for its failure.
This is not a fear driven assessment. It is truth in making an assessment.
Being emotionally lead is soulish. Being spiritually led by the Spirit of God, is a yielded life to the counsel of God’s word. They that walk in the Spirit will not fulfill the desires of the flesh Galatians 5. God says, acknowledge me in ALL your ways and I will guide and direct your path! Let HIM search your heart. For the spirit of man is the candle of the Lord searching the inward part of the belly. Because the heart is exceedingly wicked we cannot trust it. That is why we go to the Father with the intent to be honest with him, with a willingness to accept the truth and not deny it. For an honest and truthful assessment of our lives, and circumstances, clears the fog. Decisions that are right come from seeing right. Hearing right. This needs to be actively contended for. Deception and denial are our worst enemy in a time of crises. In the world we live in now, we have already been lulled into a slumber in the midst of a raging storm, when we really need to have our wits about us. Jesus said watch and pray. Today, we need to be fully awakened and seek truth no matter what the cost.
2 Corinthians 10:3-5 King James Version (KJV) For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, Casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ.
beloved let us love, Christian lifestyle, deana barnes, God, home meeting, house hold of faith, inordinate affections, Jesus, newinepouring, one baptism, one faith, one lord, racism in the church, the loss in creating divisions
1 Peter 2:9 But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy race, a peculiar people; that you should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:
Inordinate affection is an over the top passion, about anything other than our love for the Lord Jesus Christ and His Church. An inordinate affection causes us to act disorderly and leads to sin. The greek word associated with it is pathos, meaning mental- you find it in the word: pathological, or psychopathic. We can get mental about a lot of things in this world these days and loose the mind of Christ in it! In fact, with the help of mainstream media and its dangerous slant on truth, many are developing opinions and a world view, in these end times, that will feed into what is described in the bible as the great deception. Satan, the bible says, is like a roaring lion pacing back and forth, seeking for an opportunity to devour. He is looking for the hamstring knock out, that will take us down. For example:
There are Christians that have kept a level head so far, maintaining a balanced view on current social headlines, or issues, until it began to bleed into the NFL.
Suddenly, we have people that (have been thought to be rational and balanced, in their views) going over the top, with inordinate or pathos’ responses because now it has touched on something that they are truly passionate about! The enemy will find our boiling point that will throw us into the ring, letting the god of this world, and the prince of the power of the air, fuel anger to the point we become inflamed; rather than, allowing the Spirit of God to temper our passions.
Nothing, should warrant division among the family of God in these days of ethnic uprisings, prophesied by Christ. We are one holy race. That is it. In all things there is the mind of Christ to be had! If we cleave to our heritages forgetting that God said our heritage is of HIM, then that will breed contention, in times of tension, among ethnic uprising. I suspect that there will be those that have such strong ties, culturally, they will not embrace their heritage that is of the Father, and they will forsake it. Had they ever looked into their identity in Christ, they would have understood what a great inheritance we have in Him. Heirs they are, who believe in their heart that God rose Jesus from the dead, confessing with their mouth He is Lord! Romans 10:9-10
In a world such as ours we should know one thing more than anything else. That is Christ and Him crucified. Seeking discernment of spirits, to differentiate between what all should be known, and what the prince of the power of the air wants us to believe.
Little Children guard your hearts and minds, keep yourself from idols, as John would say. Remembering, we all shall need adjusting, and do even now, like Peter when Jesus said, “You don’t know what spirit ye are of.” For everyone will be tempted to activism when it gets hard, this will be difficult. In all things we should remember that we are Ambassadors of Jesus Christ. So, all we should do and say, is what HE would do and say, to those who dwell outside of HIS Kingdom.
Many, are well acquainted with Jesus but have rejected him, and HIS servants, time and time again; and would have the mind of Christ now, in these days of crisis in America, if they would have listened to Him a long time ago. Still, we compel all … to come. We the (true church) will have the answers. We are citizens of the Kingdom of God. Hopefully, there will be media out reach, and I know many are set up for this, who can be a relevant voice of reason. Rightly dividing the word of truth.
The Lord, spoke to me about a leavening that would be introduced to the whole lump, if we didn’t make sure to: “Guard your hearts and minds in the days and weeks to come.” I heard the Lord say, “You knew it would be just a matter of time?” I answered, “Yes Lord.” Knowing to warn all that love HIM, to know that our affections, our passions; who or what we love, will be used by the enemy to pull any one of us into an agenda, that is earth bound, not heaven sent. In these amazing times the Lord will use His anointed to do great and mighty exploits. Many in the Spirit poised to be a clear and present force with in these days of shakings to come. To be a steady voice in the wilderness, and a stabilizer in the midst of chaotic times. Nevertheless, new works are always at the risk of take over, when they are easiest to infiltrate. That is why we have a carnage of slaughtered unborn, and sexualy abused children, that are targeted in this ruthless world we live in. Satan knows new beginnings don’t have a firm identity to resist splitting its purpose, or aborting it altogether. It will begin with what we think is right and true, because a passion has flared up on the inside of us! Just like pro abortion activists! But the question has to be asked, where did it come from, how was it fueled? Will we end up with more dead works in the world? Another voice of compromise, a mixture in this world? Or, will what God has begun among his Church, His ekklesia, become the representation of the Lord Jesus Christ in the earth? An Embassy representing Yeshuah, and His Kingdom ways. In this they will know us by OUR love.
Leavening is a fermentation that begins to spread in the dough, it lies dormant until all the right conditions come together and then it spreads very quickly.
If one were to change their mind about adding yeast, it can only be done if the fermentation is localized and then cut out, after its been introduced. Leavening is like sin. SIN means to fall short. A thing can seem right until it is debated, or another side is told. A man thinks to himself his way is right, but the end of that way is death. I pray that in every way, we as Christians seek the full counsel of God, in all things. Because perilous times are coming. Why should we take a rabid dog by the ears in an argument not our own, in a time when evil is all around us? We are in this world not of it, and careful prayer for supernatural wisdom is required to navigate through all things called a controversy, victoriously. In Mathew 24 Jesus said, there will be wars and rumors of war, nation will rise against nation .. the word in greek for nation is ETHOS’ from it the word ethnic is derived. Believe me brothers and sisters, you will want both feet in the Kingdom of God in these days of wars, and rumors of wars, nations rising up against nations! Not leaving one foot, stubbornly, stirring in those sin born controversies where there is no clear path to embrace. For sin lies in the heart of men. The heart is exceedingly wicked. Cleave to God and His son the Lord Jesus, He will give you a VOICE that will be heard, in these ethnic risings, and rumors of war! You are of one faith and baptism, you are of a Holy Priesthood one nation. Why do the heathen rage and the peoples imagine a vain thing? As we read on in Mathew chapter 24 the scripture says, “and this gospel shall be preached …” see that? (And) (while) (as) these things are going on – This gospel shall be preached!
We cannot be doing both! It is clearly one way or the other. Either you and I are part of the uprising, the wars, and rumors of wars, or we are preaching this gospel Of the Lord Jesus Christ! Remember you are in Christ, dead to the old man! The old man is a reveller! The message of the cross, and true repentance of sin is the answer to mankind’s ills.
Psalms 2:8 Ask me and I will make the Nations [Etho’-s] your inheritance, the ends of the earth your possession.
Put on the New Self. If you then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sits on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. For you are DEAD, and your life is hid with Christ in God. When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall you also appear with him in glory.
Mortify therefore your members which are on the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry: For which things’ sake the wrath of God comes on the children of disobedience: In the which you also walked some time, when you lived in them. But now you also put off all these; ANGER, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy communication out of your mouth. Lie not one to another, seeing that you have put off the old man with his deeds; And have put on the new man, which is RENEWED in knowledge after the image of him that created him: Where there is NEITHER Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor un circumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free: but Christ is all, and in all.
Put on therefore, AS THE ELECT of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, long-suffering; Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do you. And above all these things put on charity, which is the bond of perfection. And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also you are called in one body; and be you thankful. Let the WORD of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and ADMONISHING one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.
