PROPHECY PAGE

From time to time I feel impressed by God to share things He gives me (Donna Carrico).  I decided to include this page on our site.  Prophecy is declaring the mind of God.  He always did use parables and sometimes that is the kind of messages he gives to me.  I pray they will bless you as they did me and feel free to share them with others.  Here are a few examples.

October 17, 2011 - about 6:30 AM -The Lord interrupted me in the middle of my exercises and spoke this word to me.
>>>

The Lord would say to us. I have spoken, but ye have not listened. Tell the heathen that they will be brought low. Judgment is not pretty, but is necessary. The time has come for you to get serious with the Lord.

Lo, I come with great vengeance, for I am a jealous God.

Many days have passed and I have warned my people, but yet they do not listen. The young ones are like wild asses. They run in the streets to and fro. And the old ones try to be young again, yet none seek My face. Even those who call themselves my servants do not seek My face.

The shepherds have lost control of their flocks. They have no authority to lead them. The sheep have gone astray seeking pasture in molten fields. Oh, that I had a shepherd that would grab the sheep in the crook of their staff and pull them to safety and guide them in My ways.

_ It’s time for those who call themselves Apostles to walk in the way of the Master.

_ It’s time for those who are Prophets to live a life worthy of the calling.

_ It’s time for those who teach to not veer from My doctrine.

_ It’s time for those who go after the lost sheep and the black sheep to get serious.

_ It’s time for those who say they follow Me to follow Me.

Let Me speak to you my children, for I am not a god who is afar off. I am your God who loves you from everlasting to everlasting.

Write these words, My daughter, and declare them. Let them be a testimony of My love and power.

The power of the Lord is on me.  It has shaken me awake as I realize I have just had a prophetic dream.

PROPHETIC DREAM – THE COMING DARKNESS

            I was in a long room full of people of all ages.  There were both saved, born again believers and non-believers. Nothing in the building indicated it was a church, although it seemed as though we were having some sort of meeting.  There were no pews, no podiums, no Bibles that were visible.  There were a few folding tables and chairs.  It seemed as if the doors and windows were all closed. (A. B.)

            All of a sudden we all heard the screams and cries of the people on the outside.  We opened the front double doors to see what all the noise was about.  There was a carport overhead open roof structure where cars could drive under to let off or pick up passengers.  However, I saw no cars. (C.)

            What I did see will haunt me and be in my thoughts for a long time.  There was lots of smoke.  Above the carport roof I saw a thick charcoal grey black cloud of darkness.  As I looked out, it was as if it started on my left and went around the building and was coming back around on my right.  It was as if the whole city or world was being engulfed in this evil spiritual cloud of darkness.

            At the edge of the carport roof I saw a row of spiritual yet real gargoyle type creatures facing my right.  They were crouched as if waiting to spring upon the unsuspecting crowd of people. (D.)

            As the cloud of darkness continued to overcome the area, I could see a little sliver of blue clouded sky between the crouching evil creatures and the right edge of the cloud of darkness.

            There were a few people from the outside running into the building.  They were terrorized and had gaping wounds of various magnitudes caused by bite marks and possibly stings.  There were also broken bones and lots of bruising.  However, I did not see any dead bodies.

            The people within the room were ministering (serving) the ones from the outside.  They were feeding them and tending to their wounds with bandages and such. (E.)

            The cry from the outside was becoming louder and fear was overcoming many people.  I heard the chaos and the rising tumult of anguish from the people, but did not hear any noise from the cloud of darkness.  It was as if the silent judgment allowed by God was coming in the form of these evil gargoyle like creatures.  It was silent till they overcame the people outside the building. (I..)

            We decided we could not allow anymore outside people to come into the building.  We put barricades the doors and windows and as we were doing this, we heard intense knocking on the last narrow door on the middle side of the building.

            There was a man knocking and pleading and we did not let him in until we heard his testimony of his love for Jesus.  He was a black man and he was battered and bruised, but not hurt badly.  After we let him in we barricaded the last narrow door. (F. G.)

            It felt like Noah’s ark must have felt with the cries of fear and chaos outside.  As I looked about the building, I saw the people weeping and as their physical needs were met, we were ministering to them telling them of the grace and mercy of God.  We told them how Jesus died for them and how to have hope and eternal life through faith in what Jesus did on the cross.

            The people who had come in from the outside and others who were previously in the building were convinced it was the end of the world from what they had seen and heard.  Many of them repented and were born again.  Inside the building was a combination of weeping, praying, singing, and praising God along with other idle chatter.

            After a while a group of us went outside.  We were dressed in some kind of robes.  They were dark blue, not white, I presume because we were not fully glorified as we were still here on earth.  We all were waving a gold scarf in our right hands.  We surrounded the houses in the area.  They seemed to be all closed up, yet some had people inside. (J.)

            We were there to rescue the people.  We were very aggressive and were climbing in the windows and breaking down the doors.  We saw huge lion like creatures carrying off people in their mouths and taking them straight down to the pit where the smoke was coming from.  (L. M. N.)

            All of a sudden I saw one of those huge lion like creatures in the door way of one of these houses.  It filled the entire doorway.  He was waiting to devour me or the occupants of the house or anyone who came near.  As I faced the creature, he roared at me.  The power of the Lord reared up in me and I said, “Shut your mouth in the name of Jesus.  You have no power or authority here.”  A look came over the lion creature’s face.  It was a combination of anger, disdain, unbelief and finally resignation.

            Then the might hand of God took charge.  The lion creature became encased in the doorway as if he was trapped between the inside door and the outside door.  The entire door frame with the creature encased fell out of the house to the ground.  The creature was still alive, but his power was temporarily suspended.  Unfortunately, there were similar creatures that had crossed over spiritual boundaries just waiting to attack us all.  So the battled continued, but that was when the dream ended and I awoke crying, speaking in tongues, and being thankful it was a dream and not reality. (O. P. Q.)

 END OF DREAM

 As I write this I pray for God to help me remember every detail and to pray for understanding.  Prophecy should always be backed up with Scripture and as I began to process this dream, I saw many Scriptures that pertained.  I will share just a few here.  There were several Scriptures the Lord had revealed to me and after sharing this dream with David the Lord confirmed many of the same Scriptures.  I am sure there will be more of the deeper meaning of this prophetic dream in the days to come.  David has decided to teach on “The Coming Darkness”, so he will be helping us to understand the meaning of this dream.

 As I reflected on my encounter with the lion creature, I wondered how I could possibly accomplish such a thing as I am very disabled and can only walk a short distance with the help of a walker.  Immediately the Lord spoke to me and said, “Not by your power, but by my power and might!”  I believe that the Lord will give us what we need and there will be miraculous healings at the time of the end.  I have had many a battle with devils during our personal ministry sessions and have cast many of them out even in my weakened physical condition.  When I am weak, He is strong!

            Just before I commanded the lion creature to shut his mouth, some thoughts passed through my mind.  “I must not doubt!  I must not be afraid!  Lord, forgive me of my sins and prepare me for battle!  Protect me by your power!”  He did!  Praise God!

            The Lord has impressed me that I must warn people (both saved and unsaved) of the coming darkness that will be coming upon our world and also encourage the saints of God to get prepared.

             I will explain a few of the things the Lord revealed to me about the meaning of some of the things in the dream.  I have marked the text with A, B, etc. so you will know what part I am referring to. 

  1. Long room, not a church, both saved and unsaved.

 Matthew 13:24-30
(24)
  Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field:
(25)  But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way.
(26)  But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also.
(27)  So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? from whence then hath it tares?
(28)  He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up?
(29)  But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them.
(30)  Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn. 

  1. People make up the church, not a building.

1 Corinthians 12:12-14
(12)
  For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ.
(13)  For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit.
(14)  For the body is not one member, but many.

  1. Cloud of darkness came silent like a thief

Luke 12:39
(39)
  And this know, that if the goodman of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched, and not have suffered his house to be broken through.

Joel 2:2
(2)
  A day of darkness and of gloominess, a day of clouds and of thick darkness, as the morning spread upon the mountains: a great people and a strong; there hath not been ever the like, neither shall be any more after it, even to the years of many generations.

Isaiah 60:2
(2)  For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee.

Amos 5:20
(20)
  Shall not the day of the LORD be darkness, and not light? even very dark, and no brightness in it?

  1. Locusts / Scorpions out of the pit and smoke

I described these creatures as gargoyle type creatures although I could not see all the details of their faces.  I think they reminded me of gargoyles because they were perched on the edge.  Although I know they were not the only ones that were present.  It was as if they were part of an army and they were the next line to be dispatched into the war.  They were very dark creatures in the cloud of darkness, so I could not distinguish the facial features, only the havoc they perpetrated on their victims.  I do think they had wings, huge teeth and very angry expressions on their faces.

Revelation 9:1-11
(1)
  And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit.
(2)  And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit.
(3)  And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth: and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power.
(4)  And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads.
(5)  And to them it was given that they should not kill them, but that they should be tormented five months: and their torment was as the torment of a scorpion, when he striketh a man.
(6)  And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them.
(7)  And the shapes of the locusts were like unto horses prepared unto battle; and on their heads were as it were crowns like gold, and their faces were as the faces of men.
(8)  And they had hair as the hair of women, and their teeth were as the teeth of lions.
(9)  And they had breastplates, as it were breastplates of iron; and the sound of their wings was as the sound of chariots of many horses running to battle.
(10)  And they had tails like unto scorpions, and there were stings in their tails: and their power was to hurt men five months.
(11)  And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon.

Verse 4: These locusts were not to hurt the grass and most common locusts eat grass.

 

Artist's view from Internet of locust /scorpion creature in Rev. 9

 

 

  1.   People ministering.  We need to be prepared both physically (as God directs) as well as spiritually.  The people had to have already had these supplies on hand.  Good and faithful servant.  (See G. good and faithful servant)

 Luke 12:37
(37)
  Blessed are those servants, whom the lord when he cometh shall find watching: verily I say unto you, that he shall gird himself, and make them to sit down to meat, and will come forth and serve them.

 Matthew 10:24-25
(24)
  The disciple is not above his master, nor the servant above his lord.
(25)  It is enough for the disciple that he be as his master, and the servant as his lord. If they have called the master of the house Beelzebub, how much more shall they call them of his household?

  1. The cry from the people wishing they were dead

Revelation 9:6
(6)  And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them.

 Luke 21:25-28
(25)
  And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;
(26)  Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.
(27)  And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.
(28)  And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.
 

 Luke 23:29-31
(29)
  For, behold, the days are coming, in the which they shall say, Blessed are the barren, and the wombs that never bare, and the paps which never gave suck.
(30)  Then shall they begin to say to the mountains, Fall on us; and to the hills, Cover us.
(31)  For if they do these things in a green tree, what shall be done in the dry?

 Revelation 6:16-17
(16)
  And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb:
(17)  For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?

  1. Noah’s ark

 Genesis 6:11-12
(11)
  The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence.
(12)  And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth.

 Hebrews 11:7
(7)  By faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by the which he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith.

 Matthew 24:37-46
(37)
  But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
(38)  For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,
(39)  And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
(40)  Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
(41)  Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
(42)  Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.
(43)  But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up.
(44)  Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.
(45)  Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season?
(46)  Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing.
 

  1. Testimony and narrow door

 Revelation 12:11
(11)
  And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.

 Matthew 7:13-14
(13)
  Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:
(14)  Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

  1. The harvest

 Matthew 9:38
(38)
  Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers into his harvest. 

  1. One mind and accord

 Hebrews 10:22-27
(22)
  Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water.
(23)  Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;)
(24)  And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works:
(25)  Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.
(26)  For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins,
(27)  But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries.
 

  1. Scarves or banners (ensign).  We represented the army of God and we are coming after you!

 Isaiah 11:10
(10)
  And in that day there shall be a root of Jesse, which shall stand for an ensign of the people; to it shall the Gentiles seek: and his rest shall be glorious.

 Psalms 60:4
(4)
  Thou hast given a banner to them that fear thee, that it may be displayed because of the truth. Selah.

  1. Houses (David shared this with me.  I had forgotten about this Scripture.)

 Joel 2:9-12
(9)
  They shall run to and fro in the city; they shall run upon the wall, they shall climb up upon the houses; they shall enter in at the windows like a thief.
(10)  The earth shall quake before them; the heavens shall tremble: the sun and the moon shall be dark, and the stars shall withdraw their shining:
(11)  And the LORD shall utter his voice before his army: for his camp is very great: for he is strong that executeth his word: for the day of the LORD is great and very terrible; and who can abide it?
(12)  Therefore also now, saith the LORD, turn ye even to me with all your heart, and with fasting, and with weeping, and with mourning: 

  1. Snatch from fire or rescue them

Jude 1:21-23
(21)
  Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.
(22)  And of some have compassion, making a difference:
(23)  And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh.

  1. Devouring and taking to pit and roaring lion

 1 Peter 5:5-11
(5)
  Likewise, ye younger, submit yourselves unto the elder. Yea, all of you be subject one to another, and be clothed with humility: for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble.
(6)  Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time:
(7)  Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.
(8)  Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:
(9)  Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world.
(10)  But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you.
(11)  To him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.

  1. Power over the enemy

 Ephesians 6:10-18
(10)
  Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.
(11)  Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
(12)  For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
(13)  Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
(14)  Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;
(15)  And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
(16)  Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
(17)  And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:
(18)  Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;

 Psalms 25:14
(14)
  The secret of the LORD is with them that fear him; and he will shew them his covenant.

 Isaiah 40:26-31
(26)
  Lift up your eyes on high, and behold who hath created these things, that bringeth out their host by number: he calleth them all by names by the greatness of his might, for that he is strong in power; not one faileth.
(27)  Why sayest thou, O Jacob, and speakest, O Israel, My way is hid from the LORD, and my judgment is passed over from my God?
(28)  Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? there is no searching of his understanding.
(29)  He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength.
(30)  Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall:
(31)  But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

  1. Enemy defeated – We can have no fear or doubt

 Matthew 10:28
(28)
  And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.

James 1:5-7
(5)
  If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.
(6)  But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.
(7)  For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord.

 Mark 11:23-26
(23)
  For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.
(24)  Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.
(25)  And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against any: that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses.
(26)  But if ye do not forgive, neither will your Father which is in heaven forgive your trespasses.

  1. Not my power

 1 John 4:18
(18)
  There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.

 Psalms 28:7-9
(7)
  The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in him, and I am helped: therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth; and with my song will I praise him.
(8)  The LORD is their strength, and he is the saving strength of his anointed.
(9)  Save thy people, and bless thine inheritance: feed them also, and lift them up for ever.
 

 Zechariah 4:6-10
(6)
  Then he answered and spake unto me, saying, This is the word of the LORD unto Zerubbabel, saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the LORD of hosts.
(7)  Who art thou, O great mountain? before Zerubbabel thou shalt become a plain: and he shall bring forth the headstone thereof with shoutings, crying, Grace, grace unto it.
(8)  Moreover the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
(9)  The hands of Zerubbabel have laid the foundation of this house; his hands shall also finish it; and thou shalt know that the LORD of hosts hath sent me unto you.
(10)  For who hath despised the day of small things? for they shall rejoice, and shall see the plummet in the hand of Zerubbabel with those seven; they are the eyes of the LORD, which run to and fro through the whole earth.

 WHAT HAPPENS TO THOSE WHO FEAR?

 Revelation 21:7-8
(7)
  He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.
(8)  But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.

PREPARATION UPDATE - April 10, 2009

We have spent many teachings trying to warn the people of this world, both Christian and non-Christian about what is happening in this world and how to prepare both spiritually and physically. Many do not believe in physical preparation, but we see in Scripture the examples of Noah, Joseph, the ten virgins with lamp oil, and the Good and faithful servant just to name a few. Scripture references are provided at the end of this writing.
God is ultimately in charge of your spiritual and physical survival and eternal destiny. Many do not accept either method of preparation. We have decided to provide some web sites and contact information where we have gotten some valuable information. We do not endorse these contacts or claim they are the only places to get information. We do not get any financial reimbursement for recommending these contacts.
We face the threat and are experiencing things foretold in Scripture in various degrees. We do not have all the answers, but there are others who have done their homework. Whether it be earthquakes, famine, nuclear disasters, we need to be prepared both spiritually and physically. We consistently point everyone to Jesus who has all the answers, but we offer this practical information because we love you.

Books
The most important book to have on hand would be the Holy Bible for your spiritual preparation. One should be included with your other items. Another Biblical reference book that would help would be the Strong’s Concordance. There are many other physical survival handbooks available for outdoors or indoor survival. I have several included with our preparation supplies. Some teach how to use herbs for herbs for healing. Here is a book that offers many check lists and would be a valuable asset to you in your preparation. The author has made over 200 medical mission trips. He has been in many different kinds of disaster situations.

(47) Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all his goods.

END-TIME DREAMS - PERSECUTED BUT PROTECTED 4/10/2004

David and I were in a building that looked like an old filling station with the insides cleaned out. There were pull down blinds on all the windows and doors so no one could see in. There were a lot of people there. It was like the same amount of people that would come to some of the conferences 75-100 etc., but they were all crammed into the small space. They were common people, nothing fancy or rich. I heard David say, "I will do another presentation and then Donna will do hers.". The slide projector was set up and we were using one of the blinds for a screen. David had already done one presentation. 

About the time he started the new one, we heard bombs start to fall. They were hitting the ground all around us. We looked out the door and saw them coming straight down out of the sky. They were not nuclear, but some other kind of bombs. I could hear them, see them fall, and see the smoke. They were not on top of us yet, but were getting closer. We (all the people in the room) were not afraid. It was as though we were expecting it to happen. Then I woke up and realized that it was a prophetic dream. I went to the bathroom and mumbled something to David about the dream and I would tell him when we woke up. Then I went back to sleep and began to dream again.

This time we were fleeing from someone chasing us. David was walking and I was riding a bicycle. I figure this is because I am unable to walk very far, but I think I could still ride a bicycle and I do have my old one in the shed. As we were trying to get away as fast as we could, there was a bunch of teenagers assorted ages chasing us and making fun of us. I said something to David like, "We have played them one kind of music and they didn't like that and so we played them another kind of music and they didn't like that either." They finally stopped throwing rocks at us and we went on. We were going down this grassy path when we came to a drop off and I had to get off the bike and walk on down. When we got down into the woody area, it was almost like an amphitheatre in the woods. There were people waiting on us there - people we had met at the Ministry to Masons conferences, along with some of the speakers, etc. Then I woke up again.

The first dream was easy to understand as it is a sign of the end-times and the fact that we are to keep on doing what we do even in the end-times and that we were not afraid, but fully trusted in God to take care of us. It also showed that we were in hiding and that there were others in the remnant as well. I do believe that we will see that day when there will be bombs dropping all around us.

The next dream is also a sign of the end-times and also that God will protect us. When I thought about the persecution from the teenagers and others, I was reminded about the prophet in the old testament when the children mocked him and the bears came out and ate them.

(2 Kings 2:21-24 KJV) And he went forth unto the spring of the waters, and cast the salt in there, and said, Thus saith the LORD, I have healed these waters; there shall not be from thence any more death or barren land. {22} So the waters were healed unto this day, according to the saying of Elisha which he spake. {23} And he went up from thence unto Bethel: and as he was going up by the way, there came forth little children out of the city, and mocked him, and said unto him, Go up, thou bald head; go up, thou bald head. {24} And he turned back, and looked on them, and cursed them in the name of the LORD. And there came forth two she bears out of the wood, and tare forty and two children of them.

David said that it reminded him of another verse.

(Matthew 11:12-19 KJV) And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force. {13} For all the prophets and the law prophesied until John. {14} And if ye will receive it, this is Elias, which was for to come. {15} He that hath ears to hear, let him hear. {16} But whereunto shall I liken this generation? It is like unto children sitting in the markets, and calling unto their fellows, {17} And saying, We have piped unto you, and ye have not danced; we have mourned unto you, and ye have not lamented. {18} For John came neither eating nor drinking, and they say, He hath a devil. {19} The Son of man came eating and drinking, and they say, Behold a man gluttonous, and a winebibber, a friend of publicans and sinners. But wisdom is justified of her children.

I think it is a combination of both verses. Both have to do with prophets!! Jesus was trying to tell the people about John the Baptist and his purpose and he was getting a little exasperated. 

(Matthew 11:10 KJV) For this is he, of whom it is written, Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee.

This verse was directly before the other passage. That is also what we are trying to do. Prepare the way before Jesus comes back. We are trying to teach the same fundamental truths that Jesus taught to those who have hears to hear!

PROPHETIC DREAM - THE REAL DEAL - 9/9/2003 

David and I had invited people to attend a meeting we were having in our home as was our usual custom. Usually we invite many, but few attend. This day, there was a constant stream of people coming to our home and they were from our past, from the many churches and small groups we had ministered in. We soon realized that our small mobile home could not hold everyone, so we decided to look for a building. It was beautiful on the outside and the sanctuary looked perfect.

We found a church that would let us use their building, but they told us we would have to wait till they got done with their service. We offered no protest and humbly waited. There we sat while a group of young girls did their pre-arranged dance to worship music. Then the preacher got up and read the latest things that were already in the bulletin. Then he preached and it seemed like we would never get to have our meeting.

Then the preacher said we would have a break in the back of the church. We all followed him to the back room. We were in shock when we saw how dirty and un-organized it was. It was filthy compared to the sanctuary. Then they showed us big tubs of ice and containers of kool-aid and juices. They showed us the cups and said, "Now, you can’t drink out of these cups because these are ours, but you can drink out of the other cups." We humbly did what we were told and soon the break was over and it was our turn to have a meeting. While David was preparing to speak, I noticed that some people were asleep in the pews. Others had left already and there were a faithful few, just sitting patiently, excitedly waiting for David’s message. THEN I WOKE UP!

The Lord immediately gave me the interpretation for my dream.

The number of people that came to our home did represent all the lives we have touched in our ministry. Some of them have never forgot the truths we have taught them and as the times get more and more intense, they will want to fellowship with us or remember us again somehow. Most of them are attending other churches now or from other parts of the country as they just could not break away from the organized church with its apostate beliefs or from their sinful lifestyles.

The way the people treated us at the other church is how many really ‘do’ treat our ministry. Often we are judged because we have not ‘hung in there" with an organized church, compromised our beliefs and just ‘fit in.’ They judge us because we do not have the credentials they think we have to have to minister. They do not think we are as good as they are with their fancy church and padded pews. So that is why they made us wait, to show us how superior they thought they were. When we were taken to the back room, the real truth came out. Their sins were revealed and we saw just how corrupt and dirty they were. In the dream it was physical dirt, but it represented sins that they had tried to hide.

The part about the cup was really interesting. We are admonished to be careful what cup we drink from. So they were correct - we could not drink from their idolatrous cup.

(1 Cor 10:13-21 KJV) There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it. {14} Wherefore, my dearly beloved, flee from idolatry. {15} I speak as to wise men; judge ye what I say. {16} The cup of blessing which we bless, is it not the communion of the blood of Christ? The bread which we break, is it not the communion of the body of Christ? {17} For we being many are one bread, and one body: for we are all partakers of that one bread. {18} Behold Israel after the flesh: are not they which eat of the sacrifices partakers of the altar? {19} What say I then? that the idol is any thing, or that which is offered in sacrifice to idols is any thing? {20} But I say, that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice to devils, and not to God: and I would not that ye should have fellowship with devils. {21} Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord’s table, and of the table of devils.Idolatry has come upon some of the churches because they have allowed the Leavens to come in. The leavens of Freemasonry and false doctrines, etc. (More on this on our cassette tape PT23 - What Makes and Apostate Church?)

(1 Corinthians 5:11-13 KJV) But now I have written unto you not to keep company, if any man that is called a brother be a fornicator, or covetous, or an idolater, or a railer, or a drunkard, or an extortioner; with such an one no not to eat. {12} For what have I to do to judge them also that are without? do not ye judge them that are within? {13} But them that are without God judgeth. Therefore put away from among yourselves that wicked person.

When I saw the people asleep, I realized that although we had taught sound doctrine to these people, they were just not willing to wait for more instructions. They were lukewarm. The ones that left were just not hungry enough for the truth.

I do not think that this will actually happen, but it represents many things that have happened to us in our ministry and some things yet to come. We will continue to sound the alarm and cry out and expose the sins and idolatries of God’s people. (Isaiah 58) We pray that God will continue to keep us humble and convict us of our sins so that we will not be like those from the church in my dream. In His Service, Donna Carrico

TWO HEADED DRAGON DREAM - August 25, 2003 - 12:00 P.M.

I awoke from a dream where I was walking along with a Christian friend discussing a flea market and her relatives when all of a sudden the ground beneath us began to roll. It was heaving up and rolling like a firm enough to stand on mud and grass and I could see the wrinkles as it moved over the earth. There was nothing we could do physically except try to keep our balance as the earth continued to heave and roll destroying everything in its path. It was as though a horrorindously strong magnetic pull was sucking the surface of the ground up from the earth, but not totally lifting it off, and shifting everything on the surface of the earth. As I was trying to figure out what was happening, I saw above us not touching the ground, but hovering about 10-20 feet? above the ground, a two-headed dragon beast whose heads seemed to be trying to devour or was attached to a ball of fire or bright circular light. I could see how the two heads were attached to one body and although I could not see the tail, dipping lower than its head, I knew it followed reeking havoc along its way. It was so close that I could see the taupe-grey scales on its skin and the ugliness of its form. It’s hugeness was covering the earth with darkness. Immediately, I felt in my spirit that this two-headed dragon beast represented the anti-christ and the false prophet going across the earth destroying things in their path and there was nothing the people on earth could do to stop it. I also felt that it was somehow connected to a comet? or some kind of foreign object from space. I am not sure what that connection is, but I will continue to research what happens when a comet comes close the earth. There have been rumors of a "planet X" that is on a collision course with earth soon, but I cannot say for sure that it has anything to do with this dream.

At the end of the dream, there were people starting to get on an elevator and I told them that it was not safe and that I would not get on it.

After praying for the Lord to explain the dream, I felt he told me to read II Chronicles but no specific chapter or verse. I have done so briefly, but have found no answers except to notice the "twos" in the book such as the two columns on Solomon’s temple built by Huram and also the division of the children of Israel and Judah. Also, Solomon had a wife that was the daughter of and Egyptian. Within this book is the story of the king who loved God the most, Josiah along with many other bad kings. I will continue to seek the Lord and study II Chronicles.(2 Chronicles 8:11 KJV) And Solomon brought up the daughter of Pharaoh out of the city of David unto the house that he had built for her: for he said, My wife shall not dwell in the house of David king of Israel, because the places are holy, whereunto the ark of the LORD hath come.

Also, there may be a connection to this passage.

(Revelation 12:12-17 KJV) Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time. {13} And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man child. {14} And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent. {15} And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood. {16} And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast out of his mouth. {17} And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.

James Lloyd has written several little books that I am skimming to see if he has said anything that connects and I will share this dream with him also. Here are a few more Scriptures that may be connected also.

(Psalms 74:12-18 KJV) For God is my King of old, working salvation in the midst of the earth. {13} Thou didst divide the sea by thy strength: thou brakest the heads of the dragons in the waters. {14} Thou brakest the heads of leviathan in pieces, and gavest him to be meat to the people inhabiting the wilderness. {15} Thou didst cleave the fountain and the flood: thou driedst up mighty rivers. {16} The day is thine, the night also is thine: thou hast prepared the light and the sun. {17} Thou hast set all the borders of the earth: thou hast made summer and winter. {18} Remember this, that the enemy hath reproached, O LORD, and that the foolish people have blasphemed thy name.

(Job 41 KJV) Canst thou draw out leviathan with an hook? or his tongue with a cord which thou lettest down? {2} Canst thou put an hook into his nose? or bore his jaw through with a thorn? {3} Will he make many supplications unto thee? will he speak soft words unto thee? {4} Will he make a covenant with thee? wilt thou take him for a servant for ever? {5} Wilt thou play with him as with a bird? or wilt thou bind him for thy maidens? {6} Shall the companions make a banquet of him? shall they part him among the merchants? {7} Canst thou fill his skin with barbed irons? or his head with fish spears? {8} Lay thine hand upon him, remember the battle, do no more. {9} Behold, the hope of him is in vain: shall not one be cast down even at the sight of him? {10} None is so fierce that dare stir him up: who then is able to stand before me? {11} Who hath prevented me, that I should repay him? whatsoever is under the whole heaven is mine. {12} I will not conceal his parts, nor his power, nor his comely proportion. {13} Who can discover the face of his garment? or who can come to him with his double bridle? {14} Who can open the doors of his face? his teeth are terrible round about. {15} His scales are his pride, shut up together as with a close seal. {16} One is so near to another, that no air can come between them. {17} They are joined one to another, they stick together, that they cannot be sundered. {18} By his neesings a light doth shine, and his eyes are like the eyelids of the morning. {19} Out of his mouth go burning lamps, and sparks of fire leap out. {20} Out of his nostrils goeth smoke, as out of a seething pot or caldron. {21} His breath kindleth coals, and a flame goeth out of his mouth. {22} In his neck remaineth strength, and sorrow is turned into joy before him. {23} The flakes of his flesh are joined together: they are firm in themselves; they cannot be moved. {24} His heart is as firm as a stone; yea, as hard as a piece of the nether millstone. {25} When he raiseth up himself, the mighty are afraid: by reason of breakings they purify themselves. {26} The sword of him that layeth at him cannot hold: the spear, the dart, nor the habergeon. {27} He esteemeth iron as straw, and brass as rotten wood. {28} The arrow cannot make him flee: slingstones are turned with him into stubble. {29} Darts are counted as stubble: he laugheth at the shaking of a spear. {30} Sharp stones are under him: he spreadeth sharp pointed things upon the mire. {31} He maketh the deep to boil like a pot: he maketh the sea like a pot of ointment. {32} He maketh a path to shine after him; one would think the deep to be hoary. {33} Upon earth there is not his like, who is made without fear. {34} He beholdeth all high things: he is a king over all the children of pride.

(Isaiah 14:29 KJV) Rejoice not thou, whole Palestina, because the rod of him that smote thee is broken: for out of the serpent's root shall come forth a cockatrice, and his fruit shall be a fiery flying serpent.

JOY INTO MOURNING

"INVISIBLE WARFARE"

MOURNING INTO JOY

Word from the Lord to the Body:

"Delight in the Joy of the Lord for your Joy will be turned into Mourning as you see what is coming upon my people"

I saw a brown dirty fence with barbed wire. It had brown wood sticks (like the ones you use as tomato stakes) mixed in with the wire at the bottom part. I realized this fence was to keep the Christians "in", not the enemy "out".

I was barefoot and in dirty, ragged, brown, torn prisoner clothes and felt my hands tied behind my back. My eyes had been plucked out and stitched shut. My tongue had been cut out and my voice box was injured. The stitches on my eyes and the ones that kept my mouth shut were not pretty, not professional at all. They reminded me of scarecrow stitches.

And yet--I REALIZED I COULD BE IN THE PRESENCE OF THE LORD IN MY MIND. They could do all they could do to my body, but they couldn't get to my mind. OR COULD THEY?? My ears were not harmed because that is the way the enemy can get to our minds.

The Lord is showing us that our minds are THE LAST BATTLEFIELD!

AND WE ARE NOT READY!

We must learn to protect our minds. We must learn how to go the SECRET PLACE--

>without music >without words spoken out loud >without the laying on of hands or ANY EXTERNAL STIMULATION.

That can only be done with practice. We must really learn to bring every thought into captivity as the word says.

(2 Corinthians 10:5 KJV) Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;

We must learn how to do SPIRITUAL BATTLE IN OUR MINDS AND SPIRITS.

That is the only way we will be able to withstand the persecution that is coming upon God's people.

We must learn how to fight the enemy in our minds - not with our bodies.

This does not mean we are to quit how we worship and warfare now, but we must BEGIN TO PRACTICE in our minds:

"INVISIBLE WARFARE"

This is the name the Lord told me to call what I am trying to explain.

We are in SPIRITUAL WARFARE TRAINING and we are becoming accustomed to God's presence. We CAN call on the angels through our minds.

We CAN call fire down from heaven from our minds.

We CAN be in His Holy presence IN OUR MINDS.

We CAN do ALL things through Christ who strengthens us.

Stephen saw the Lord as he was being stoned to death.

(Acts 7:55-56 KJV) But he, being full of the Holy Ghost, looked up stedfastly into heaven, and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing on the right hand of God, {56} And said, Behold, I see the heavens opened, and the Son of man standing on the right hand of God.

We CAN TOO!

The Scripture also tells about turning Mourning into Joy in James chapters 4 & 5. This is a portion of that passage:

(James 4:7-10 KJV) Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. {8} Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded. {9} Be afflicted, and mourn, and weep: let your laughter be turned to mourning, and your joy to heaviness. {10} Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up.

 

The rest of the chapter 4 and 5 are to remind us of what is expected of us.

As always Father God always makes a way and he gave us Jesus to turn our MOURNING INTO JOY.

In the passage in Luke Jesus is speaking to the Pharisees in the temple as He read from the scroll:

(Luke 4:18-21 KJV) The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, {19} To preach the acceptable year of the Lord. {20} And he closed the book, and he gave it again to the minister, and sat down. And the eyes of all them that were in the synagogue were fastened on him. {21} And he began to say unto them, This day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears.

You will notice that Jesus closed the book (after verse 19) and said this scripture was fulfilled in their ears that day!

Yet that is not all of the Scripture. The rest of the original passage can be found in Isaiah 61.

(Isaiah 61:2-9 KJV) To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn; {3} To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he might be glorified. {4} And they shall build the old wastes, they shall raise up the former desolations, and they shall repair the waste cities, the desolations of many generations. {5} And strangers shall stand and feed your flocks, and the sons of the alien shall be your plowmen and your vinedressers. {6} But ye shall be named the Priests of the LORD: men shall call you the Ministers of our God: ye shall eat the riches of the Gentiles, and in their glory shall ye boast yourselves. {7} For your shame ye shall have double; and for confusion they shall rejoice in their portion: therefore in their land they shall possess the double: everlasting joy shall be unto them. {8} For I the LORD love judgment, I hate robbery for burnt offering; and I will direct their work in truth, and I will make an everlasting covenant with them. {9} And their seed shall be known among the Gentiles, and their offspring among the people: all that see them shall acknowledge them, that they are the seed which the LORD hath blessed.

You will see that Jesus stopped short of speaking of the day of vengeance and the mourning and what He has for us - HIS BRIDE - His "trees of righteousness", His Priests and Ministers of God. He also stopped short of the warnings to the people He was speaking to that day. But they knew what the rest of the passage said and that is why they were filled with wrath and tried to throw him over the hill, yet He escaped.

The rest of that passage is for us-HIS BRIDE. He has opened the book in Heaven-the Old Testament-to reveal to his Prophets and servants exactly what the fulfillment of the prophecy means.

(Revelation 5:6-10 KJV) And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth. {7} And he came and took the book out of the right hand of him that sat upon the throne. {8} And when he had taken the book, the four beasts and four and twenty elders fell down before the Lamb, having every one of them harps, and golden vials full of odours, which are the prayers of saints. {9} And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation; {10} And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.

He is beginning to open the seals that comes after the passage above.

(Revelation 6:1-2 KJV) And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts saying, Come and see. {2} And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer.

The ENEMY is the same: THOSE WHO DID NOT ACCEPT JESUS TO BE THE MESSIAH. Those who are like the Apostle Paul was before conversion. Those who are zealous modern day Pharisees, and those who have chosen to follow an anti-Christ new age belief system, and those who have refused to accept that Revival is real and God's power can truly change lives and be manifested in many ways.

They are still our ENEMY and they are still persecuting and will continue to persecute BELIEVERS until Christ returns in ALL HIS GLORY to claim his Bride and bring peace as only He can bring.

TO HIM BE ALL THE GLORY FOREVER, AND FOREVER, AMEN

PLANTING POTATOES

A few weeks ago (June 2000) I was asking the Lord to give me a word for the church.  This is what I saw.

I watched myself planting potatoes.  It has been a long time since I planted potatoes, but this is what I feel the Lord revealed about it. 

 When we plant "seed" potatoes, we have to be sure that they have no "rotten spots" in them.  Then we have to be sure that they have at least two "eyes" and we must plant them facing up.  Then we also must be sure that the potatoes are planted deep in the soil so the "roots" will be strong.  We also have to be sure they are "nurtured" with plenty of sun and water.  Then when they "mature", they sprout other potatoes an the "cycle" goes on and on.

As Christians we must be sure that we are "seeds" for others.  We need to be sure we have no "rotten" in us.  We need to be holy before the Lord and keep sin out of our lives.  We also need to be sure we keep our "eyes" up - towards the Lord in Heaven and look forward to His return and for direction in our lives from Him.  Then we also need to be sure we are "rooted" and grounded with the Word of God in our hearts and our roots planted deep in Him.  We also need to be "nurtured" with good Bible teachings and renew our minds so that we will "mature" properly.  And of course, like potatoes, we need to be able to produce more "potatoes" - Christians like ourselves.  We need to present Christ to others and plant seeds of the gospel and pray that hearts will be changed so that the cycle can continue bringing others into the Kingdom of God.

Your Servant, Donna Carrico

THE ULTIMATE TRUTH

To Print out PDF Click Here

What you are about to read are the most important facts (truths) that you will ever read.

We are speaking of this book you are reading now, or any other book that you will ever read during your lifetime. The section you are about to read contains the ULTIMATE TRUTH and KNOWLEDGE OF THE UNIVERSE.

DO NOT STOP UNTIL YOU HAVE READ THIS SECTION COMPLETELY THROUGH!

The Word of God says that there is a knowledge so important that we will perish if we don’t know it.

(Hosea 4:6 KJV) My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.

Jesus said there is a truth so powerful that if we know it we will be set free.

(John 8:32 KJV) And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

The New Testament states there is a knowledge about God so important that if we know it, we will have everything we need to live a Godly life.

(2 Peter 1:2-4 KJV) Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord, {3} According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue: {4} Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.

We certainly need to know these facts, these things, above all other things and we need to be able to share them with others. These ‘facts’ are truths about the gospel of Jesus Christ which unlocks the power of God to all who will learn them and believe them.

(Romans 1:16 KJV) For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.

DON’T STOP READING NOW - thinking that you know all about the facts surrounding the gospel. We pray that you do know all the facts, but it is quite likely that you do NOT; because the facts you are about to read are rarely taught by the modern church. REMEMBER, PLEASE READ THIS ENTIRE SECTION before you decide you have been taught all the facts about the gospel.

Thank God that we are not saved by our ‘heads’ according to what we know, but we are saved by our ‘hearts’ when we repent and believe the gospel. But the following facts are what we must believe if we are going to be saved.

1. That Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures

2. That He was buried

3. That He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures

(1 Corinthians 15:1-4 KJV) Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; {2} By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. {3} For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; {4} And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

If you believe these three simple facts and understand that You are a sinner and that Jesus died for Your sins to pay the penalty for Your sins, You are ready to repent and believe the gospel.

(Mark 1:15 KJV) And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.

To "repent" you need to simply acknowledge to God that you are a sinner and that you are willing to turn from your sins and to receive Jesus Christ as the Lord of your life and to follow Him. If you understand these simple truths and your heart is willing, you can now pray to become a Christian and receive eternal life. You can pray a prayer of your own choosing or you can pray the following simple sample prayer.

Father God, I acknowledge that I am a sinner and that you sent your Son, Jesus Christ to die for my sins on the cross of Calvary. I ask you to forgive my disobedience and I now accept Jesus’ death on the cross and His shed blood as payment for my sin debt. I now receive Jesus Christ as the Lord of my life that I may follow Him all of my days. I thank you for your wonderful gift of Salvation! In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.

If you prayed that simple prayer with simple Faith and an honest heart, you are ready to publicly confess Jesus Christ as the Lord of your life, that you are truly saved, and are now a Christian.

(Romans 10:9-10 KJV) That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. {10} For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

There are now some more very important facts you need to know about what happened to you. You have just experienced what Jesus called being "born again."

(John 3:3 KJV) Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.

This experience - this ‘heart change’ has brought about some changes that you need to understand.

(2 Corinthians 5:17 KJV) Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.

Important Fact # one

At the moment you prayed to receive Jesus as the Lord of your life, you experienced new birth and God put withing you a new nature and the Holy Spirit to dwell in your heart.

(2 Peter 1:3-4 KJV) According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue: {4} Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.

(1 Corinthians 6:19 KJV) What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?

You will soon realize that there has been quite a change indeed. You now have the Holy Spirit to guide you and you have a new nature from God that will give you not only the desire to follow Jesus and do what is right, but also the ability to keep following him by FAITH.

Important Fact #two

At the moment you were born again you "died to sin." And to be more specific, you became dead to your own sinful nature.

(Romans 6:1-2 KJV) What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound? {2} God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?

The sin that is spoken of in Romans 6:1-2 in the Greek Text is literally, "The Sin" and refers to the sinful human nature that we are all born with rather than the individual acts or works of sin. (Gal. 5:19-21). YOUNG’S LITERAL TRANSLATIONS gives the literal translation of this verse and shows us the definite article ‘the’ before the word sin.

What then, shall we continue in the sin that the grace may abound? (YOUNG’S LITERAL TRANSLATIONS OF THE HOLY BIBLE, Baker Book House)

At the moment you were born again you became dead to your sinful nature which means that you had absolute victory over your sinful nature at that point in time. This is what the Apostle Paul refers to in Romans 6:3 as being baptized into Christ.

(Romans 6:3 KJV) Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death?

This verse isn’t talking about water baptism, but baptism "into Jesus Christ." This happens by faith when we are born again even though we don’t fully understand it at the time. As previously stated, at the moment you were born again you had complete victory over your sinful nature.

(Romans 6:7 KJV) For he that is dead is freed from sin.

Many Christians testify to the wonderful feelings of peace, joy, and victory that they experienced when they were saved. Most honest Christians will also testify they also experienced failure and their bubble burst bringing them back down to planet earth soon after. The main reason for this is that while the Christian understands that he is saved by "grace through faith," he usually tries to achieve sanctification by ‘works’ which is an impossible task.

(Galatians 3:3 KJV) Are ye so foolish? having begun in the Spirit, are ye now made perfect by the flesh?

This usually happens to the new convert through no fault of their own, but because they are not taught properly.

When most Christians think about "getting the victory" they think about how they can stop committing some specific sin. They usually pray for the Lord to help them to Stop: cigarettes, alcohol, pornography, gambling, etc. The problem in reality is not these specific "sins," but "the sin" - the sinful nature that is ruling over the Christian. The Christian then falls into the trap of trying to do specific things to overcome the problem or addiction. This is what we call Sanctification by works and will only yield temporary results. There is only one way to win this battle.

THE ONLY WAY TO ACHIEVE VICTORY OVER OUR OWN SINFUL NATURE

IS TO DIE TO IT!

The only way to die to "the sin" (sinful nature) is to step from the realm of Law into the realm of Grace and Faith.

(Romans 6:14 KJV) For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace.

Most Christians upon reading Romans 6:14 believe they are automatically under grace because live in New Testament times. This is far from the truth. Many Christians are under a law of their own creation and are trying to keep their own law to work their problems out. The sad truth is they will never achieve their freedom from "the sin" doing that. This is what the Word of God calls frustrating the grace of God.

(Galatians 2:21 KJV) I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, then Christ is dead in vain.

The grace of God is the only way we can truly grow in the Lord.

(2 Peter 3:18 KJV) But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen.

Please understand! We are sure the things most Christians do to help overcome the sin problem are good things that they need to do such as: going to church, reading the Bible, fasting, having hands laid on them in prayer, or even prayer itself. These things often become self-imposed laws a person makes for themselves. We know these are all great things to do, but if you are doing them in order to get rid of the sin problem in your life, YOU WILL FAIL. THERE IS ONLY ONE THING THAT CAN TAKE CARE OF THE SIN PROBLEM AND THAT IS THE CROSS OF JESUS CHRIST AND HIS SHED BLOOD. If you fail to understand what this truth means, you will fail in your battle against sin.

REMEMBER, THE ONLY WAY YOU CAN GET VICTORY OVER SIN

IS TO DIE TO IT

BY FAITH IN THE CROSS OF JESUS CHRIST

That is the way you need to understand this book. This book you are reading does not contain things to replace the cross of Christ, but it does contain things that will help you after you place your faith in the cross of Christ.

Let us be more specific. The Word of God tells us that our old man (sinful nature) was crucified when we were born again.

(Galatians 5:24 KJV) And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.

They "have crucified" (past tense) - the "flesh" (old man, sinful nature) at the time they were born again. At this point in time you had victory over your sinful nature and it did not reign over you. It is clear from the Word of God that this is what happened when you were born again. YOU DIED TO SIN ( YOUR OLD SELF).

(Romans 6:6-7 KJV) Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin. {7} For he that is dead is freed from sin.

We need to understand that the cross isn’t just something that we hear about when we are saved but it is the focus of our daily walk.

(1 Corinthians 15:31 KJV) I protest by your rejoicing which I have in Christ Jesus our Lord, I die daily.

We can die to sin daily because we don’t have to try to "get the victory" over sin because Jesus has already won the victory for us. His death on the cross fully paid the sin debt and nothing else can ever take its place. The only fight that we have to fight is the fight of Faith.

(1 Timothy 6:12 KJV) Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses.

(1 John 5:4 KJV) For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.

Here are a few last facts that you will need to understand.

1. You can live in victory over your sinful nature to the point that it does not reign over you, but it will never be completely gone.

(1 John 1:8 KJV) If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.

2. You will always be subject to being tempted because of your fallen nature that remains in you. You will battle with our un-Godly world and the Satanic forces that oppose you.

(Ephesians 6:12 KJV) For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

(1 Corinthians 10:13 KJV) There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.

3. If you yield to sin your fallen nature can reign over you once again and you will have to exercise I John 1:9 and replace your faith in the cross on a daily basis.

(Galatians 3:11 KJV) But that no man is justified by the law in the sight of God, it is evident: for, The just shall live by faith.

4. We have three ingredients to the victorious Christian life:

the cross

our daily faith in it

and the Holy Spirit who makes the victory real in our life.

(Galatians 2:20 KJV) I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.

Roman 6:11 is a key verse. As we believe and confess by faith that our old man died with Jesus on Calvary and that through the new nature within us we also live with him, we die to sin once again. WE REIGN OVER SIN - SIN DOESN’T REIGN OVER US.

(Romans 6:11 KJV) Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord.

This doesn’t mean that we live in a life of sinless perfection and no failures. There is no such thing, but Does mean that we stand by faith in the victory that he has already won for us. Our faith in the cross will release the Holy Spirit in our life to give us true victory.

(Romans 8:37 KJV) Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.

(Romans 8:31 KJV) What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?

(Romans 8:28 KJV) And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

This is what Jesus was talking about in Luke 9:23 when Jesus said that a Christian had to deny himself he was not talking about earthly things that he needed to give up. What we need to deny is that there is anything (or any self-imposed law we can keep) that we can do about our sin problem.

(Luke 9:23 KJV) And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me.

Our biggest problem is our own self sufficiency that lies at the very root of our fallen nature. When you realize THE ONLY THING YOU CAN DO ABOUT SIN IS TO DIE TO IT - you will know THE TRUTH THAT SETS YOU FREE!

As you place your faith in the cross, the Seven Steps to Healing in the Gilead’s Balm book written by us will aid your growth in the process of sanctification. We have proclaimed to you THE ULTIMATE TRUTH - the way of liberty.

(Luke 4:18 KJV) The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised,

May the Holy Spirit anoint you as you stand by faith in the victory of Jesus Christ.

What is a Seer or Prophet?

The following excerpt is from my book, Lord is that You?  - A Garden of Memoirs and Blessings.

"PART 4 - SEERS AND PROPHETS

We can read about prophets in both the Old and New Testaments. I will not cover this subject in depth, but have a few thoughts I wish to share. This short word to me from the Lord explains much in a few words.

      A Prophet’s Eyes

A prophet’s eyes can only see
If his eyes are opened wide

And then what he does see
He cannot hide

First of all I want to express my belief that there are still apostles and prophets today. The church is supposed to be set up that way.

1 Corinthians 12:28-31 And God hath set some in the church, first apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, governments, diversities of tongues. (29) Are all apostles? are all prophets? are all teachers? are all workers of miracles? (30) Have all the gifts of healing? do all speak with tongues? do all interpret? (31) But covet earnestly the best gifts: and yet show I unto you a more excellent way.

The word "set" means to make right or to set like a broken bone. That means that it may not always be pleasant, but necessary. I have heard several teachings about prophecy and many people are ready to stone the prophets of today because their prophecies are not always accurate. Perhaps the following Scriptures may help increase our understanding what has changed and what has not changed.

1 Corinthians 12:28-31

1 Corinthians 13:8-13 Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away. (9) For we know in part, and we prophesy in part. (10) But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away. (11) When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things. (12) For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known. (13) And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.

We see in the previous verse that prophecies will fail verse eight, and we prophesy in part verse nine, and we are somehow kept from seeing everything clearly, knowing only part. These verses also imply that we should be striving for maturity. Therefore, we are not to stop trying to prophesy. There is an example of a prophecy that did not quite come true in the New Testament.

Acts 21:10-11 And as we tarried there many days, there came down from Judaea a certain prophet, named Agabus. (11) And when he was come unto us, he took Paul’s girdle, and bound his own hands and feet, and said, Thus saith the Holy Ghost, So shall the Jews at Jerusalem bind the man that owneth this girdle, and shall deliver him into the hands of the Gentiles.

Notice that Agabus prophesied the Jews would bind Paul. We can read in the verse below that the Jews indeed did stir up the people and laid hands on Paul.

Acts 21:27 And when the seven days were almost ended, the Jews which were of Asia, when they saw him in the temple, stirred up all the people, and laid hands on him,

1 Corinthians 13:8-13 Acts 21:10-11 Acts 21:27

However, we read in the following verse that it was the Roman chief captain that commanded his soldiers to bind Paul with chains, and the Jews did not literally bind Paul as Agabus prophesied.

Acts 21:31-33 And as they went about to kill him, tidings came unto the chief captain of the band, that all Jerusalem was in an uproar. (32) Who immediately took soldiers and centurions, and ran down unto them: and when they saw the chief captain and the soldiers, they left beating of Paul. (33) Then the chief captain came near, and took him, and commanded him to be bound with two chains; and demanded who he was, and what he had done.

Agabus rightly prophesied Paul would be put in chains, but was not accurate as to who really put the chains on Paul. There is a pattern for prophets in the Bible. Unfortunately, we do not see the so-called prophets of modern Christiandom using that same pattern. When the prophets of old prophesied what the Lord gave them it was normally a conditional prophecy. If you do this, then God will do this, etc. Prophets were called "seers" in the Bible. This means they had the ability to ‘see’ into the spiritual world and to ‘see’ visions and have dreams. They could hear God and were chosen to speak the mind of God on His behalf.

1 Samuel 9:9 Beforetime in Israel, when a man went to inquire of God, thus he spake, Come, and let us go to the seer: for he that is now called a Prophet was beforetime called a Seer.

2 Kings 17:13 Yet the LORD testified against Israel, and against Judah, by all the prophets, and by all the seers, saying, Turn ye from your evil ways, and keep my commandments and my statutes, according to all the law which I commanded your fathers, and which I sent to you by my servants the prophets.

Acts 21:31-33 2 Kings 17:13

Numbers 12:6 And he said, Hear now my words: If there be a prophet among you, I the LORD will make myself known unto him in a vision, and will speak unto him in a dream.

If people who call themselves prophets today would examine the Scriptures carefully, then they might be more careful as to what they claim and say. I accept how serious it is when I think God tells me something, and I realize I have to stand before a holy God with everything I do, or say in my life.

Deuteronomy 18:18-22 I will raise them up a Prophet from among their brethren, like unto thee, and will put my words in his mouth; and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him. (19) And it shall come to pass, that whosoever will not hearken unto my words which he shall speak in my name, I will require it of him. (20) But the prophet, which shall presume to speak a word in my name, which I have not commanded him to speak, or that shall speak in the name of other gods, even that prophet shall die. (21) And if thou say in thine heart, How shall we know the word which the LORD hath not spoken? (22) When a prophet speaketh in the name of the LORD, if the thing follow not, nor come to pass, that is the thing which the LORD hath not spoken, but the prophet hath spoken it presumptuously: thou shalt not be afraid of him.

Many times the Lord will reveal something to a person, but they do not take the time to pray about it in order to receive the full understanding. I learned early in my Christian walk to follow these self-made guidelines. I believe God has impressed this wisdom in my heart. We are to reprove, rebuke, and exhort. In all we do we must do it in love, and want the best for whoever we are to deliver the prophetic word to. I also believe when God speaks a prophetic word to be delivered to all the church, or a personal word, or a revelation from the Bible, these guidelines should be applied to all Christians and prophecy.

Whenever you think you hear God speak to you, the first thing to do is test the spirits to be sure it is from God and you are not being deceived.

Numbers 12:6 Deuteronomy 18:18-22

1. This step actually confirms the first guidelines. Try to document what God has told you, or if it is supported in the written word, the Holy Bible.

2. Next, you need to pray to understand "Who," "if," and "when" you are supposed to tell someone what you feel God has revealed to you. Sometimes God reveals something to a person and they are supposed to pray over. They are not to share it at the time it is revealed to them.

3. We also need to pray for wisdom about how to deliver the word properly. We need to pray for God to put His words in our mouths exactly as He wants them said.

4. A person also needs to pray for the persons on the receiving end to be willing to understand, receive the word, and in some cases, for their hearts to be softened. I have heard someone say that he detested ‘parking lot prophecy’. That is when someone says they have a word for you, but they need to tell you in private, or they chase you to the parking lot to tell you. This has happened to me. I question that method. However, there are times that God does want you to tell a person in private, but not every time.

Whenever prophecy is spoken, that person is nothing if they do not have Jesus as their testimony.

Revelation 19:10 And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.

I believe that in the following verse, we can see a parallel with most churches of our day. There are still many false prophets among us. I think it is our responsibility to search the Scriptures and pray for discernment to be able to know the false prophets from true prophets. The prophet Jeremiah spoke to warn the people.

Jeremiah 14:14-18 Then the LORD said unto me, The prophets prophesy lies in my name: I sent them not, neither have I commanded them, neither spake unto them: they prophesy unto you a false vision and divination, and a thing of nought, and the deceit of their heart. (15) Therefore thus saith the LORD concerning the prophets that prophesy in my name, and I sent them not, yet they say, Sword and famine shall not be in this

land; By sword and famine shall those prophets be consumed. (16) And the people to whom they prophesy shall be cast out in the streets of Jerusalem because of the famine and the sword; and they shall have none to bury them, them, their wives, nor their sons, nor their daughters: for I will pour their wickedness upon them. (17) Therefore thou shalt say this word unto them; Let mine eyes run down with tears night and day, and let them not cease: for the virgin daughter of my people is broken with a great breach, with a very grievous blow. (18) If I go forth into the field, then behold the slain with the sword! and if I enter into the city, then behold them that are sick with famine! yea, both the prophet and the priest go about into a land that they know not.

God spoke to the prophet Ezekiel and helped him to see the kind of people he was prophesying to.

Revelation 19:10 Jeremiah 14:14-18

Ezekiel 12:2 Son of man, thou dwellest in the midst of a rebellious house, which have eyes to see, and see not; they have ears to hear, and hear not: for they are a rebellious house.

We live in perilous times. Many only want to hear what is pleasing to them. They do not want to hear that God is displeased with them.

2 Timothy 4:3-4 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; (4) And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.

Along with being responsible when we prophesy, we also must be discerning and test the spirits when we listen to prophecies.

1 John 4:1 Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.

Ezekiel 12:2 2 Timothy 4:3-4 1 John 4:1We are given guidelines in the Bible to help us, but people are human and we make mistakes.

1 Corinthians 14:32-33 And the spirits of the prophets are subject to the prophets. (33) For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.

When the church is set up on the proper foundation, it should function properly as well. When believers are truly humble and walk in fear of the living God, they will function properly. We have a problem in the apostate church of today. Many of the so-called prophets are imposters or false prophets, and most church members are letting false prophets judge the prophecies of other false prophets while true prophets are not heard.

Many church members are rebellious and want to follow all the church programs or the latest fad in music or ministry. I want to remind everyone that we will stand before the holy God, the creator of the universe, and are responsible for what we hear, what we believe, and how we live our lives. Do you have ears to hear?

Matthew 13:34-43 All these things spake Jesus unto the multitude in parables; and without a parable spake he not unto them: (35) That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying, I will open my mouth in parables; I will utter things which have been kept secret from the foundation of the world. (36) Then Jesus sent the multitude away, and went into the house: and his disciples came unto him, saying, Declare unto us the parable of the tares of the field. (37) He answered and said unto them, He that soweth the good seed is the Son of man; (38) The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one; (39) The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels. (40) As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world. (41) The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity; (42) And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth. (43) Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear."
