Scripture Reading at beginning of meeting Psalm 23 - "The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want. In verdant pastures, he gives me repose; beside restful waters he leads me; he refreshes my soul. He guides me in right paths for his name's sake. Even though I walk in the dark valley I fear no evil; for you are at my side with your rod and your staff that give me courage. You spread the table before me in the sight of my foes; you anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. Only goodness and kindness follow me all the days of my life; and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord for years to come."
Prophecy: "My beautiful children, my Spirit rests upon you tonight. My Spirit rings within your heart and is filling it to the full with my love and my peace. My children, you are my joy. I delight in you. I delight in your love. Tonight I am surrounding each and every one of you with my Sacred Heart, my heart that will never, never abandon you; my heart that will always be with you til the end of time."
Confirmation/Vision: I can confirm the heart. I saw a big heart and I heard "abundance of love". And then I heard the Lord say, "Be near my heart. My child, my children, I am with you." And I saw him standing in what looked like a heavenly cloud and there was a heart and he was holding a dove. And then, I heard him say, "Glorify me in these difficult times. Shine, be a light through these dark times. Give people my light. Let them know my presence through you. When they look at you, it is me they can see. You must be my light. You need to shine forth in this darkness. Be a light, my child, be a light."
Confirmation/Scripture Reading 2 Thess 2:13 -15 - "As for us, we can't help but thank God for you, the brothers and sisters loved by the Lord. We're always thankful that God chose you to be among the first to give you salvation, a salvation that came through the Spirit. It makes you holy and through your belief in the truth. We called you to salvation when we told you the Good News. Now you can share in the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ. With all these things in mind, dear brothers and sisters, stand firm and keep a strong grip on the teaching we passed on to you, first in person and by letter."
Confirmation/Scripture Reading Heb 12:1-2 - "With so many witnesses in a great cloud on every side of us, we too, then, should throw off everything that hinders us, especially the sin that clings so easily, and keep running steadily in the race we have started. Let us not lose sight of Jesus, who leads us in our faith and brings it to perfection: for the sake of the joy which was still in the future, he endured the cross, disregarding the shamefulness of it, and from now on has taken his place at the right of God's throne."
Prophecy: "My children, my children, I'm embracing you. I am drawing you closer to myself. My children, I see the love you have for your neighbors, for your family. Remember, that I am shining through to them and you are seeing my love shining through them for you, too. Remember, I am always beside you, in you, around you and I'm always showing my love through you because spend time with you every day, I want to talk to you, I want to fill your hearts more and more and more so you are never outside of each other's ? so we hear each other as we move through our day. Thank you, my children, for being so faithful. I'm coming now to open your hearts to me, my dearest love, my dearest children."
Scripture Reading Jer 1:4 -9 - "The word of Yahweh was addressed to me, saying, 'Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; before you came to birth I consecrated you; I have appointed you as prophet to the nations.' I said, 'Ah, Lord Yahweh; look, I do not know how to speak: I am a child!' But Yahweh replied, 'Do not say, "I am a child." Go now to those to whom I send you and say whatever I command you. Do not be afraid of them, for I am with you to protect you - it is Yahweh who speaks!' 'There! I am putting my words into your mouth.'"
Confirmation/Vision: I want to confirm the last prophecy because at the start of the praise and worship, I saw Jesus. He came really close and very near, more than usual. I think that's confirmation of how near he is to all of us during this time.
Prophecy: What's coming to me is what was spoken last week about the bridesmaids having oil because we don't know when the bridegroom is coming. Rather than just waiting for this pandemic to be over, but being ready for Jesus because we don't know the time or the day when he will come to take us back home.
Confirmation: I'd like to confirm that last prophecy. The words that I got, "Be ready. Stand guard." And I had that same bible verse about the oil and the lamp.
Vision/Confirmation: I saw a woman and she was getting ready. It looked like she was going to fly a helicopter. She put on like what a person driving a helicopter would put on their head with a microphone. It looked like she was getting ready for take off.
Confirmation: I just want to confirm regarding "getting ready" because after the 10 bridesmaids, etc., it just kept coming into my head, "Just be ready. You never know when the time is going to come, just be encouraged."
Re the vision of woman putting on helmet and getting ready to take off in a helicopter: The Lord brought to my mind that Scripture from Ephesians, puting on the whole armor of God.
Prophecy: At the start of praise and worship, I was getting really a strong sense of "great change is ahead" and a sweeping like there's something, I don't know if it's this virus that's going on or we're hearing of all kinds of things going on politically but it's a change and just be ready for what's coming ahead and just to know that during this time, that Jesus is with us, he is near us and to hold strong with him and stay close to his heart.
Some of the things that I have been thinking about: We should always be ready. In one of the ways to be ready is to pray in the morning and read our bibles. Another way to keep ourselves in good health, to give our sins, to have in our hearts to repent and to change, in that way if we always open ourselves to what the Lord would give us, then we are going to have a better health situation, a better disposition to be able to love the people that we are acting with. It is always good to be ready. It is always good to have our heart set on him because like with the oil lamps, they were ready to receive the Lord, but the ones that didn't, they lost out on the opportunity when the master came. The devil can't send his illnesses towards us; there's another layer we have around us to keep ourselves in good spirits and good hearts, in a position to receive the love. So, always a good plan to spend time with the Lord.
Scripture Reading Titus 2:11-13 - "For the grace of God is being revealed to bring salvation to our people and we are instructed to turn from Godless living and simple pleasures. We should live in this evil world with wisdom, righteousness and devotion to God while we look forward with hope to that wonderful day when the glory of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ will be revealed."
Prophecy: I got a great sense during the praise and worship that this is a very special time of anointing. And God and love, it's so profound and he's being so generous in his love and his forgiveness. He's holding us on his lap, like a child, and as a child he's comforting us and he wants us to know that we can come to him at any time, in any way and know that his heart is a heart that is pure with forgiveness and his mercy, compassion and justice.
Prophecy: "My children, I love you. I care for you. I want you to feel those hugs that you are missing at this point in time and I want you to know that I'm near to give you my peace, to give you my love, to give you that hug you're missing."
Prophecy: The last verse that I read in Jeremiah, that was for Natalie, for your talk tonight. "Here I am putting my words into her mouth."
Prophecy: "Fear and confusion are not of the Lord."
Confirmation: I'd like to confirm what was said about that Scripture in Jeremiah. I had a very strong sense that there was a special anointing upon you tonight, Natalie, and that anointing of the Holy Spirit is full of his love.
Confirmation/Scripture Reading Isaiah 41:13 - I'd like to confirm prophecy about fear and confusion and this might also be for you, Natalie. "The Lord, my God, holds my right hand. He is the Lord. He says to me, 'Fear not, I will help you."
Teaching by Natalie entitled, "God's Bouquet". 1 Cor 12:14-19 St. Paul is writing to the Corinth community about spiritual gifts and the importance of each person with their gift in the body of Christ. You make a difference. You are significant. You are the "apple of God's eye." Romans 12, verse 6 says that we have gifts that differ according to the grace given to us. Dr. Mary Healy's and my story. Each of us has a place of service for the Lord. None is greater, just different. Each one of us is like a water hose and all we have to do, is let the Lord's grace flow through the hose in whatever way he wants. Story of Billy Graham, Vernon Patterson and Albert McMakin. St. Teresa of Avila said: "Christ has no body now but yours. No hands, no feet on earth but yours. Yours are the eyes through which he looks compassion on this world. Yours are the feet with which he walks do to good. Yours are the hands through which he blesses all the world. Yours are the hands, yours are the feet, yours are the eyes, you are his body. Christ has no body now on earth but yours." Frank Laubach wrote when Christ was on earth, he was limited to performing his ministry in one place and at one time. He made provision to carry on the work through the Holy Spirit: we are to complete his mission. We are his multiplied hands, his feet, his voice and compassionate heart (end of quote). St. Therese of Liseux said the splendor of the rose and the whiteness of the lily do not rob the little violet of its scent nor the daisy of its simple charm. If every tiny flower wanted to be a rose, Spring would lose its loveliness (end of quote). Celebrate your uniqueness and the gift you are from God to the body of Christ because you are part of God's beautiful bouquet for the world!
