I awoke from a prophetic dream this morning.
I was driving a bus like a school bus but without seats. It was loaded with cattle. I had stopped the bus and went into a cafe to eat lunch.
When I had finished lunch and looked out toward the bus it suddenly dropped to the ground as if it had no wheels and then the top of the bus came open as if it was hinged in the front and begin to lift up and down as if it were breathing.
I went to the bus and found that all the windows had been left closed and the cattle were all fallen to the floor as if dead from suffocation.
I quickly opened the door started up the engine and began to look for air conditioner controls and was thinking that I had to get the windows opened and the bus moving to see if the cattle world revive.
I woke up at that point.
I was badly upset as first I realized that the bus represented a ministry and the cattle were the people looking to a ministry for life.
As the driver, I was a leader and had failed to keep the windows of the Spirit opened to maintain an abundant flow of the breath of the Spirit.
Then I realized that this was also the condition of the people of the western nations and much of the world.
World news media and most all that is seen and heard by the people is VOID of the BREATH (SPIRIT) of GOD, and the people are suffocating.
I, and perhaps many others who have some part in tending the flock must NOW OPEN the WINDOWS WIDE to the FLOW of the SPIRIT!
The bad news of the evil at work in the world is suffocating and deadly.
The GOOD news of the SPIRIT brings the JOY of the LORD to strengthen us.
The joy of the Lord is our strength. Paul wrote, REJOICE and again I say REJOICE!
It is time to turn off the bad news that brings sadness and death and turn on the good news of the goodness and the glory of the LORD.
The love and glory of God is coming forth as the kingdom of God is arising in our hearts and lives to bring forth the joy of the LORD.
Peace is joy at rest.
Joy is peace in motion.
We are what we eat. We become what we believe, and we believe what we hear and see.
Hear and see by the Spirit that which God is saying and doing. Set your affection (mind) on things that are higher, things that are from above.
Look up to the high places, and be filled with the joy of the LORD.
Take a deep breath of the Spirit and be made alive again. God can raise the dead suffocated people. The dry bones can again live now in this day.
Lift your eyes and ears to the Spirit and turn off the bad news of the enemy.
God is calling forth His people now with the trump of God the call is clear breathe in the Spirit and exhale the glory of God into the hearts and lives of the people on your bus, the people around you.
THE JOY OF THE LORD IS OUR STRENGTH!
Be made whole in His love,
