I saw black storm clouds gathering. The wind was picking up and the sky was very dark and ominous. Jesus, our Good Shepherd was motioning with His white robed arms and calling His Children home.
I saw a white picket fence around the area that the Good Shepherd was bringing His sheep into. There was a pile of white stones inside this enclosure. White stones in the Bible represent our new names and hidden manna.
The color white represents light, goodness, heaven, safety, brilliance, protection, softness, and perfection. So know this, Beloved, our time in this stormy world will soon be drawing to a close.
But we must not forget the lost sheep. Jesus leaves the 99 sheep dwelling in safety to search for His lost wandering ones. Let us keep sharing the good news of the gospel to a lost and dying world.
This is the Father’s heart, that NONE should perish, but ALL come to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. We are being given hidden manna by His Spirit to be able to withstand, flourish, and nourish others in these last days. Be of good cheer, little flock, for one day soon we shall hear these words from our Beloved Good Shepherd,” Come up hither.” It will not be the end, Beloved, but only the beginning!
A white picket fence around a house traditionally mean that this is a home of security, close family and happiness.
The color white is associated with purity, innocence, light, goodness, heaven, safety, brilliance,illumination,understanding, faith, beginnings, spirituality, possibility, humility, sincerity, protection, softness, and perfection. The color white can represent a successful beginning, (Ref: Bourn Creative).
“He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To the one who conquers I will give some of the HIDDEN MANNA, and I will give him a WHITE STONE, with a new name written on the stone that no one knows except the one who receives it.” Revelation 2:17.
“The people ate the manna.. until they came to a habitable land. They ate the manna till they came to the border (fence) of the land of Canaan, (Promised Land, Heaven),” Exodus 16:35.
“And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, you may be also,” John 14:3.
“For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a cry of command, with the voice of an archangel, and with the sound of the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive, who are left, will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we will always be with the Lord. Therefore encourage one another with these words,” 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17.
