Visions are God’s Warnings
from His Heart of Love
The other night, I had a vision of an Earthquake that was not good. I saw men falling into huge crevasses in the ground and screaming as they went. The next day when I got up, I posted this and a lady said that it had happened that night. I am not sure if that was the one that God was showing me, but one thing is for sure, it was a sign that I was hearing from God and for me or us to pray.
God Isn’t Into Scaring Us Just To Scare Others
God does not scare us with a vision for the sake of scaring us so that we can scare others. He gives us these visions mostly for the purpose of praying for all that will be affected by it. To pray that men and women will come to know Him and that lives will be saved and not lost. He shows us the enemies intent at times.
Sometimes we need to just know that God is always redemptive in Nature, but He put us in charge down here as we her His voice we are to begin to decree His words into the situation. We are to begin to pray His heart for what is about to happen, and if we truly do not “know Him” intimately, we will be the ones who “call fire down from heaven on them.”
Death And Destruction Deterred
Anyway, the earthquake that happened, thankfully, was minimal, even though it was spread out in many states. I am sure that God woke up many more intercessors with a dream or vision Wednesday night and that they began to take authority over all of the works of the enemy! Thank God!
One of my prayers in these kind of situations is that “ONLY GOD’S WILL SHALL BE DONE!” That is how Jesus told us to pray, and that is not a cop out. It is saying that, If this thing is going to happen, then let God get glory out of what He does through it and do not let the enemies plan, destroy lives and people with it.
One of the reasons that people do not get visions and dreams it that God knows what they would do with it! They would go around putting more fear into others than they would praying for His will to be done.
The Authority Has Been Given To Us
We have been given the authority to bind whatever has been bound in Heaven. Or another way of saying it is, we have been given authority to forbid what has already been forbidden and loose whatever has been allowed in Heaven. We now have the keys to the Kingdom and we are the doors that let in or let out whatever we see and hear the Father saying or doing..
Jesus came and operated this way to demonstrate it to us so that we could do the same when He left. He is interceding for us but He is doing it through us as He speaks to us and shows us things to come in all of the gifts of the Spirit that he has given us.
It is time to stop being all enamored by these gifts even though they are so awesome and we praise Him for what He has given us and begin to use the gifts and authority to change what the enemy has planned and bring the Kingdom into every aspect of life!! It is time to Arise and Shine!
