Getting to know God better through visions

FAN THE FLAME

FAN THE FLAME

2 Timothy 1:6-7 “For this reason I remind you to fan into flame the gift of God, which is in you through the laying on of my hands.* For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline. “

* Laying on of hands: the act, given to those who are seeking the indwelling of the Holy Spirit and all His gifts for us, which includes the fruit of the Spirit. (See Galatians 5:22)

The Scene: A person who has already received the baptism in the Holy Spirit, laying hands on someone who wants to receive the same baptism in the Holy Spirit. The flames (tongues of fire) represent the Holy Spirit entering the candidate.

Luke 11:13 If you then, though you are evil,* know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!” *sinners—for all have sinned and come short of the glory of God. (See Romans 3:23).

The Five Fold Ministry— the gifts of being apostles, prophets, teachers, workers of miracles, gifts of healing, those able to help others, those with gifts of administration and those speaking in tongues: these make up the body of Christ and His church. (See 1 Corinthians 12:27-31)

Acts 2:1-4 When the day of Pentecost* came, they were all together in one place. Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting. They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them. All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit entered them.” * 50 days after Jesus’ bodily ascension into heaven.

7-35 THE TONGUE

FREEDOM IN THE WORD

FREEDOM IN THE WORD

Galatians 5:1, 13 “It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery. You, my brothers, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the sinful nature; rather, serve one another in love.”

The Scene: A view from above; a representation of God’s people who are playing, enjoying their freedom. A very large ocean-going power boat, making fast turns, zig-zagging along. Above the speed boat is a jet flying close to the water, with its powerful engine exhaust causing the water to spray, forming a rooster tail wake beside the boat.

Isaiah 61:1 “The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me, because the Lord has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners.”

The blue waters represent the living water (the Word of God). We can have complete freedom when we live according to the Word (the Holy Bible) and are not restricted by the legalist, who wants us to focus on just one part, and who may twist completely the Word, which would bring death, not life. Then we are truly freed from fear of death and can look forward to life in heaven with our Lord Jesus and our heavenly rewards, which are gained through our faith in Him and our obedience.

7-38 FREEDOM

UNCHAINED

UNCHAINED

2 Timothy 2:8-10 ” Remember Jesus Christ, raised from the dead, descended from David. This is my gospel, for which I am suffering even to the point of being chained like a criminal. But God’s word is not chained. Therefore I endure everything for the sake of the elect, that they too may obtain the salvation that is in Christ Jesus, with eternal glory.”

The Scene: A picture of the Holy Bible laid open with an unlocked and loosened chain.

God’s people have been chained because they wouldn’t stop speaking God’s Word, which represents worldly rejection. Paul and Peter were chained physically, but God’s word cannot be chained nor controlled, lasting forever.

Matthew 24:35 “Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.”

John 8:31-32 “To the Jews who had believed him, Jesus said, ‘If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.’ “

John 1:1 ” In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning.”

7-36 TRUTH

OPEN OUR EYES

OPEN OUR EYES

MARK 8:17-19 “Aware of their discussion, Jesus asked them: ‘Why are you talking about having no bread? Do you still not see or understand? Are your hearts hardened? Do you have eyes but fail to see, and ears but fail to hear? And don’t you remember? When I broke the five loaves for the five thousand, how many baskets of pieces did you pick up?’ ‘Twelve,’ they replied.”

The Scene: A dropper putting drops into the eye to help clear up the vision–the eye drops representing God’s living water, His Holy Word.

Mark 8:21 “Jesus asked his disciples, ‘Do you still not understand?’ “

When we read God’s Word and still lack understanding, we have been given Jesus’ Holy Spirit to give us relational knowledge and understanding. We have but to pray and ask for clarification.

Mark 8:25 “Once more Jesus put his hands on the man’s eyes. Then his eyes were opened, his sight was restored, and he saw everything clearly.”

7-31 BLINDNESS

PATH OF RIGHTEOUSNESS

PATH OF RIGHTEOUSNESS II

MATTHEW 7:14 “But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.”

The scene: A gravel road, straight and narrow, with a Christian person walking on the path; serpent holes in the ground along each side of the narrow way, representing those things that cause God’s people to leave the straight and narrow path (the way of holiness).

Snakes/serpents came out of the holes and tried to bite God’s own. However, the double-edged sword was being held by this Christian person–representing the Word of God. This was enough to keep the snakes at bay.

When trials come we are to hold steady, on the way, speaking out with God’s Word and prayer to stop the attacks of the enemy. If God’s people stay on the narrow road we will arrive at our eternal destination, heaven, and receive our promised rewards and our home with God forever.

James 1:12 -13 “Blessed is the man who perseveres under trial, because when he has stood the test, he will receive the crown of life that God had promised to those who love him. When tempted, no one should say, ‘God is tempting me.’ For God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does he tempt anyone; but each one is tempted when, by his own evil desires, he is dragged away and enticed.”

7-31 TEMPTTATIONS

UNFORGIVENESS

UNFORGIVENESS

Mark 11:25 “And when you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive him, so that your Father in heaven may forgive you your sins.”

The scene: A green shoot emerged from the ground and grew into a beautiful flower, representing God’s children.

A vine then came out of the ground right next to the flower’s stem. The vine grew upward wrapping itself around the flower stem and began to strangle the life from the flower–the vine symbolizing the sin of unforgiveness.

“Many Christians are caught up in the sin of unforgiveness,” said the Holy Spirit, “And need to repent.” Near the end of this vision appeared the hand of the Lord that pulled the weed from the ground at the root, thus signifying a prayer of repentance which had been said by the person represented by the flower. The Christian is showing growth in Christian walk and in spiritual maturity. Our Lord is a forgiving God to us when we forgive others.

Matthew 6:12-15 ” ‘Forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.’ For if you forgive men when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive men their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.’ “

7-30 FORGIVENESS

FELLOWSHIP OFFERING

FELLOWSHIP OFFERING

Deuteronomy 27:4-9 “And when you have crossed the Jordan, set up these stones on Mount Ebal, as I command you today, and coat them with plaster. Build there an altar to the Lord your God, an altar of stones. Do not use any iron tool upon them. Build the altar of the Lord your God with fieldstones and offer burnt offerings on it to the Lord your God. Sacrifice fellowship offerings there, eating them and rejoicing in the presence of the Lord your God. And you shall write very clearly all the words of this law on these stones you have set up.”

The Scene: The altar built to the Lord of natural stones and set one upon the other, with grout in between the stones.

A fellowship offering was then presented to the Lord* *See: Leviticus 7:11-27: A description of how the altar was to be built and the sacrifice to be eaten, in God’s presence. The fellowship offering of thanksgiving provided to the people by Father God was offered by the priest, given back to God virtually, and then shared by that priest with God’s people.

Exodus 20:24 “Make an altar of earth for me and sacrifice on it your burnt offerings and fellowship offerings, your sheep and goats and your cattle. Wherever I cause my name to be honored, I will come to you and bless you.”

Hebrews 10:5-7 Therefore, when Christ came into the world, he said: ‘Sacrifice and offering you did not desire, but a body you prepared for me; with burnt offerings and sin offerings you were not pleased.’ Then I said, ‘Here I am–it is written about me in the scroll–I have come to do your will, O God.’ “

Father God gave His people rules for their own good, bringing blessings to those who choose to honor and serve Him. So give God your best and He will give you His best–His Son, Jesus Christ, Savior.

6-46 GOD’S BLESSINGS

GENTLE IS OUR GOD

GENTLE IS OUR GOD

The Scene: Large breaking waves near shore, rolling in, one after another. Then the wave flattened out and continued to roll onto the shore, gently caressing the sandy beach.

Psalm 89:9 “You rule over the surging sea; when its waves mount up, you still them.”

Sometimes the large waves seem the only way people see God–a God of awesome power. The people fear Him. But if His people would focus on who our Holy God really is they will see His gentleness, like the waves as they gently stroke the sandy shores.

Psalm 46:10 “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.”

We receive rewards from God when we listen to His voice, spoken through His Holy Spirit, and follow His will, rather than our own.

Psalm 107:29-31 “He stilled the storm to a whisper; the waves of the sea were hushed. They were glad when it grew calm, and he guided them to their desired haven. Let them give thanks to the Lord for his unfailing love and his wonderful deeds for men.”

Psalm 136:1 “Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good. His love endures forever.”

5-159 GENTLE GOD

BE NOT ENTANGLED

BE NOT ENTANGLED

Hebrews 12:1-2 “Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us. Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.”

The Scene: Rolls of barbed wire stretched out along the ground as a trap/ensnarement.

Many times God’s people entangle themselves in entrapments of their own making (sin) created by their own words and deeds.

God’s children can help themselves by listening to the voice of the Holy Spirit and reading the the Holy Scriptures, doing what Jesus Christ says is the right way to live.

James 1:22-25 “Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says. Anyone who listens to the word but does not do what it says is like a man who looks at his face in a mirror and, after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets like. But the man who looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom, and continues to do this, not forgetting what he has heard, but doing it–he will be blessed in what he does.”

5-184 SIN

OUR HELP

OUR HELP

Psalm 121:1-2 “l Lift up my eyes to the hills–where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth.”

The Scene: A picture of a vast landscape of rolling hills–a mix of gold and green.

Isaiah 41:10 ” So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.*”

* Note In the Holy Scriptures “my righteous right hand” is Father God’s Son, Jesus the Christ, the Savior of all who will trust in Him for salvation.

Our Holy Spirit said, ” I will not leave you nor forsake you.”

Isaiah 46:4 “Even to your old age and gray hairs I am he, I am he who will sustain you. I have made you and I will carry you; I will sustain you and I will rescue you.”
