I have not posted anything for many months as I have been away doing missionary work. However, this morning (June 1) I am prompted to send this vision I had several years ago when I was in Singapore. It has stayed with me all this time and the closer I feel we are to the taking away of the "bride" the more important it seems I need to share it. I will explain that at the end of the vision.
In this vision, I was walking with a very large group of people in a kind of desert place. It was very hot, and we were tired and hungry. Suddenly, we came to a hill and stopped. On top of the hill was a small cabin. A man came out of the cabin and looked at the scene below him. He asked, "Are you hungry? Are you thirsty?" Of course, all the people shouted "Yes!". So he went back into his cabin and brought out food and drink, enough for everyone.
The people were gathered in a semi-circle. One by one some thanked the man, but most of them finished and left without doing so. I was at the end of this semi-circle, and I overheard some of the people near me. They were saying, "Look at that man! Look at that small cabin! Just a shack! Do you know, he used to be A KING? But look at him now...just living in a little shack of a cabin!" They were almost ridiculing him.
That shocked me and I was puzzled. That man--was once a king? What had happened to him? Then as I stood there thinking about it, I watched as nearly all the people had finished and were leaving. But I knew I should thank the man.
Then it struck me: If this man were once a king, he is still a king because he has royal blood in his veins. So I decided that I would honor him as a king, and prostrated myself face down on the ground and said, "Sir, if you were once a king, you are still a king, and I honor and thank you for what you have given me to eat and drink."
Just then, "the man" appeared. It was Jesus! I looked up at Him as He said these words to me: "Mary, (he called me by my name), most people think of me as 'poor Jesus":
'poor Jesus' with no place to lay His head.
‘poor Jesus, born in a stable.
'poor Jesus' wearing a homespun robe.
'poor Jesus' without money.
'poor Jesus laid in a borrowed tomb.
'poor Jesus' ....'poor Jesus'....'poor Jesus".
"I left My glory in heaven and came to earth to live as a poor, common man. To show my disciples that followed me how even being poor, they might be rich. For this is I suffered scorn, ridicule, and persecution. Finally, I suffered on My cross and died for the sins of all.
Yes, I lived as a poor man in those days. And when they think of me, most people still see me like the poor man living in the cabin....'poor Jesus'. But I am no longer that man. I rose from the dead and have returned to my glory. I now sit at the right hand of My Father in heaven and am truly King. Because you have honored, thanked me and recognized my Kingship, all I have is yours. All you have to do is but to ask Me."
Then the vision dissolved.
I have shared this vision many, many times as I have traveled this world. I believe (just as I was at the very end of that semi-circle of people), that we are also nearing the end of the Gentile age, and are at that point of decision: will we prostrate ourselves in humility and thankfulness to the 'poor man in the cabin" or to a soon-coming King?
The Apostle John truly recognized Him as who He is, and which was, and which is to come:
"John to the seven churches which are in Asia: Grace be unto you, and peace, from him which is, and which was, and which is to come, and from the seven Spirits which are before his throne; And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood. And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father: to him be glory, and dominion forever and ever. Amen.'' (Rev 1:1-6)
So little time left.
