Police continue to mis-interpret and mis-represent what I am publishing – to enjoy their sadistic nature it seems – keeping me on ‘Police Bail’ for over a year and arresting me six times altogether – holding me between 10 and 43 hours – taking my walking sticks away and handcuffing me twice…
Hence I indulge in spiritual messages to feed my soul with ‘health food’.
THE BAMBOO HOUSE by Marsha Burns:
Much of what we built in the past has been torn down. But, the foundation on Christ stands firm, and He will cause us to build again.
We have seen the work of men. We have seen the work of religion. We have experienced division, exploitation and fleshly endeavors. It is now time to see what God will do!
I know that we have all said, at one time or another, “If I had it to do over again…” Well, we are entering a season when we will have opportunities to do things in life differently-things that we deemed to be failures.
In a vision I saw a man building a house with bamboo, and I knew this house would be simple, flexible, and durable.
Bamboo includes some of the fastest-growing plants in the world. Bamboo has a higher compressive strength than wood, brick, or concrete and a tensile strength that rivals steel. Compressive strength resists being pushed together, whereas tensile strength resists being pulled apart.
I believe this vision is a type of who we are becoming in Christ. God is about to cause us to become a better house-simple, flexible, durable.
Here are some things that I believe God has spoken to me for the new season:
We will see people finding their niche who have not known what to do or where they fit. God will open their eyes to possibilities both spiritually and naturally. Many will no longer see themselves as misfits, but will begin to see how truly unique and special they are in the context of divine destiny.
A few days ago, I had a burst of joy. It came out of nowhere. It was supernatural and delightful. I believe this was a foretaste of a response that will develop as we come out of a dark and tedious past into spiritual light.
In a vision I saw a fork in the road where a traveler would have to choose which way to go, and the Lord said, “You are coming to an intersection in life where you must choose the direction that your life will take. The choices will be clear, and you will be able to distinguish between the two. One path will draw you ever closer to Me, says the Lord, and the other path will take you further down the road of worldliness and self-interest. Choose wisely.”
We will see more contrast-the light getting lighter and the dark getting darker. The righteous will become more pure and the wicked will become more evil. There will be an ever-widening chasm between the two.
Wherever your focus has been on external things, God wants to do an internal work of reordering your priorities to align with the importance of life in the Spirit.
The year will begin softly without noticeable change, but each day will present opportunities to put God first-to get connected and stay connected. Then, He will direct every, single step.
You have seen what you don’t want. You have seen the work of the enemy against you. You have seen the works of men. You have had plenty of chaos and trouble that tried to destroy the tenderness of your heart towards God. You know what it is like to experience the meanness that protects religious and legalistic attitudes. Don’t go down that path again. Find the path of love, of peace, of righteous living. Find the way of the Holy Spirit and never deviate from it again. Set your face like flint to seek God, no matter the cost or distraction. This is a year when you can reinvent yourself.
What you simplified and fortified in the last season will become your dwelling place in the next season.
In another vision I saw someone trudging through the sand on a valley floor, a very dry place, on the way to a mountain with snow-covered peaks, and I knew that this person represented those in the Body of Christ who are still in a very dry place spiritually, but moving towards the fresh anointing.
I believe at this point in time we have crossed the desert sands and are positioned for the spiritual ascent to the heights, far above worldliness and carnal living.
Micah 4:1 Now it shall come to pass in the latter days that the mountain of the LORD’S house shall be established on the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and peoples shall flow to it.
I am sure God will continue to unfold and reveal His purpose for us as we begin our ascent.
