Dear sisters and brothers. I would like to preface this by saying that our Heavenly Father doesn’t play card games.
He is omnipotent, the Creator of all things. There is no contest between Him and Satan. But the Holy Spirit gave me this dream to show us something wonderful in a way we can understand. As it is said, a picture is worth a thousand words. And our Savior does have a sense of humor.
I saw Satan and an unseen Player sitting at a card table. In the devil’s hand was a straight flush. The devil was looking very smug, sitting back in his chair, believing that he had won.
Then I saw our Savior’s nail scarred Hand lay down His cards. There were 5 aces. In the natural, this would be impossible, as there are only 4 aces in a deck. This wasn’t a “wild card”, but was a 5th ace of a new suit, created by Him.
There was a look of shock on the enemy’s face when he realized he had lost the game.
I heard this, “Beloved. My plans for you TRUMP anything that the devil plans against you. What is impossible with man, is possible with your God.
Even when it looks like you have lost the game, it isn’t over, Dear One. I AM the First and the Last. I have the last say. I create a way where there seems to be no way. You are not of this world, My Child. You are a citizen of heaven. You are a Kingdom possessor. You are an overcomer.
Every resource and supply of heaven is yours by the Blood of the Lamb. It is finished, Beloved.
You don’t have to play the enemy’s “games” any more. I have triumphed over him at the Cross. Look to the One who is your Helper.
When the enemy tries to catch you in his snare of deceit, lies, and fear, you tell the devil, ‘GAME OVER’.”
5 = The number of GRACE
