Preparation

Published by under Spiritual

Preparation

i found myself in a very dark place…
but the LOVE of our Father there
was simply overwhelming.
it felt as if electricity were surging
throughout my body…
those power surges that go
right into your solar plexus and
cause you to bend down.
it perplexed me that is was so dark
but then i heard
“a Secret Place of the most High.”
this satisfied me…

then

all became light
as if the walls of a room or chamber
had been rolled back.
the light was filtered through
a glory mist
laced with the most exquisite colors
i have ever seen.
the mist moved all around me.
i stood there charged with God
in an even greater wonder
and delight.

then

i began to hear singing
below
me.
these were angelic voices, and their
song was like something in
Paradise.

i was intrigued that they seemed
so far beneath me
but
they seemed to be
rejoicing with me.

i lifted my arms up as high
as they would go
and worshiped Jehovah

for i knew
this was part of
the preparation
of
His Daughter
for
some unique
and special
TASK

then all was quiet
as i rested in the Lord…
but I smiled as
a deep PEACE
flooded my
entire being.

all glory and honor
and praise
to You
sweet Jesus
and Father.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

this is a translation experience.
as we have both a body of flesh and
a spirit body.
the Holy Spirit can take us to
many distant places for
purposes of His own.
i might be graced with this
particular gift,
but if I had no LOVE,
nor faith,
nor peace, joy,
or OBEDIENCE,
it would all
mean
nothing.

i share these things with you
simply to encourage you to
ask the Lord for all of the gifts
and to be so intimate
with Jesus
that you will continue to grow
higher and higher
and deeper and deeper into
HIM
for this will take you
into full
union
with
GOD.

lovingly,

diana

Lean on Me

Lean on Me

Do not try to force anything. . .just BE. . .simply BE. Do not attempt to understand nor work out your situations with your natural mind; simply be present with ME moment to moment. The instant you say ”I am unable,” is when I draw close to empower you with My Spirit. Lean on Me. Acknowledge My sovereignty in all things for your ways are NOT My Own. Trust me, Child. Trust in My Wisdom and My Counsel.
Lean on Me. . .Lean on Me. . .
I AM the SHEPHERD Who carries the sheep.
I AM the ONE Who seeks out the lost.
I AM the ONE who is able
when thou art not.
Lean on Me. . .lean on Me. . .

I AM thy STRONG ARM in all situations.
I AM thy clear mind midst confusion.
I AM thy COMFORTER in despair.
I AM thy LIGHT shining in the darkest hour.
I AM thy HOPE when downcast.
Lean on ME!

I AM thy HEAD at all times.
I AM thy HUSBAND, thy SHIELD, thy FORTRESS.
I AM thy eternal connection with GOD. . .the WAY. . .
I AM ALPHA and OMEGA.. . .Thou canst lean on ME.

I AM ALL in ALL to thee
and thou art essential to Me. . .
even at thy weakest
even at thy darkest
even at thy lowest

At all times and places and in all seasons
thou art precious to ME. . .
Please . . .Lean on ME. . .

The Scent of the Wolf

Published by under Spiritual

The Scent of the Wolf

It is time for us to sharpen up our noses (discernment) for our enemy still stalks the camp. This is a strong warning for anyone enjoying this website. As we become increasingly lost in God and are anointed with the fragrance of His beauty and His love, we become highly attractive to the wolves (sin in any form wearing a myriad of masks) who are encircling the sheepfold. Some of us have ascended to such heights and depths in Jesus Christ that we totally trust that we are immune from attack or deception and thus feel out of harm’s way. But this is NOT TRUE my brothers and sisters. Great writers throughout history have reported how the Lord will allow the enemy to attack us to bring us to our knees in humility and repentance lest pride and self righteousness reign within our hearts. Right now the enemy would love nothing more than to snatch us when we are very close to union with God and ascension into the higher realms. As long as there is a shred of flesh alive in us, the evil one can gain a foothold ~ and it is usually in one of those areas in which we have really struggled. He will lure us with his lies (just as he did Eve) until we find ourselves rationalizing and even defending his arguments. And this can all happen very innocently…we are simply caught off guard. All of a sudden we are off to the slaughter! Loving brothers and sisters might even warn us, but we are by then too worn down without even knowing it. Sometimes these are people who enter our lives wearing sheep’s clothing and at other times they are unseen spirits. However they enter they can seem so good, so right … even so wonderful!
Before we know what is happening, the wolf has usurped the position of our Lord. Yes, we now bow to the will of the enemy thinking that this could even be sent from God. The Lord is merciful, however, with those who have been faithful for a prolonged period of time. Something will go wrong with the plans of the enemy so that God in His sovereignty can lift us out of the mire in which we find ourselves. We will not emerged unharmed, however, and it might take a prolonged period of time for healing and restoration to occur…or…at other times we simply need to repent and go on. The Lord was there all along, and He will meet us as we emerge from our transgressions. Sometimes we have been led down this path of sin because the evil one seems to be able to inflict us with something akin to an opiate or ether until we are so drugged we fall for his ploy. It takes a while for that cloud of ether to lift so that we can begin to see, to retrace our footsteps and understand where our weakness was.
Brothers and sisters, BEWARE!! Be VIGILANT. STAND GUARD and BE ALERT watching for traps at all times. Let us examine ourselves for potential areas of weakness. Is it an old addiction? Is it lust, greed, loneliness, isolation, or pride? The list goes on, but we each know ourselves, and the Holy Spirit will help us as we attempt to “clean house.”
Oh most Holy Spirit help us to truly see those areas in our lives that still need to be sanctified. Open our senses in order to be aware of evil however subtle. And if we are stolen, bound, and used up, please be quick to restore us to right standing with Jesus and His Body.
I was listening to someone preach a message several weeks ago, and in it he said, “The best gift I can give you is my holiness.” Why would this be so? Because when one of the elect has fallen, the entire house of the living stones is weakened. So we not only have an obligation to ourselves to be wary and to walk in purity, we owe it to the beautiful brothers and sisters we love.

Yours in Jesus,

diana

Announcement

Published by under Spiritual

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

I have heard a call from the Lord beckoning me to Himself for a season of prayer. We also have such a brief summer here in Oregon that I would appreciate a break from blogging to enjoy our Father in the natural beauty. For those of you who are new to the website, I send out a daily inspiration in the form of a scripture verse or short reading. If you would like to receive these, please send me an email. I also hope that you will send me your concerns and prayer requests.

Have a wonderful summer, but please do not neglect quality time with the Lord for the hour draweth nigh. I sense that He has many truths to unveil, yet He is the Truth, and it is Jesus Himself Whom we seek…always.

If there is anything pressing from the Lord that He wishes me to share, I shall be sure to log it on. Enjoy your families, gardens, warm weather, and all that summer has that is so special…especially for those of us living in northern climates.

In His LOVE,

diana

The Palm Branches

Published by under Spiritual

Last night I had a wonderful, anticipatory dream. I felt that I was in a Catholic Church as I was unsure whether to stand or kneel, and it is a place where they “do” the kinds of things that this dream presented. Mother Teresa was the central figure, and she was hauling in HUGE palm branches (perhaps twenty-five feet long). They appeared more like Curly Willow, but I KNEW that they were palms. The whole focus was on preparation for Jesus’s entry into Jerusalem for His passion, death and resurrection.

Mother Teresa was still very petite but dressed in a plain skirt and blouse with short hair of a gray-brown color. These palms were so much larger than she was, and yet it seemed important that she carry them (someone from beyond the veil)! This could have many meanings, and if any of you have further insight into the fact that someone from beyond the veil needed to PREPARE US for the final leg of our journey, please leave a reply and let us know.

I woke up and immediately went to tend my own palm tree which I purchased at Wal Mart for little money the Saturday prior to Palm Sunday. I was unaware that it was that day until I saw all of those palm plants. As I watered and pruned my palm, the excitement and reverence that I felt following this profound dream, lingered with me, and that plant has become very special and prophetic for me.

It is my joyful hope that this was prophetically indicative of the nearness of the end to the journey for some of us. Let us not become dismayed if we are suffering at this time, as we know what follows the passion and the cross. In the meantime, let us pray that we shall begin walking exactly as Jesus walked during His earthly ministry, as I know this step must be walked out prior to that final crucifixion and RESURRECTION. Let us pray for the boldness, the power, the LOVE and tenderness needed. All we need to do is allow Jesus to move through us at all times…as we shop, work, play. Let us keep our awareness on His indwelling Presence and trust that it is no longer our lives but HIS within us.

“The next day a vast crowd of those who had come to the Passover Feast heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem. So they took branches of palm trees and went out to meet Him. And as they went, they kept shouting, Hosanna! Blessed is He and praise to Him Who comes in the name of the Lord, even the King of Israel.”

John 12: 12, 13

“I have been crucified with Christ [in Him I have shared His crucifixion]; it is no longer I who live, but Christ (the Messiah) lives in me: and the life I now live in the body I live by faith in the Son of God, Who loved me and gave Himself up for me.”

Galatians 2:20

My crucified Lord appears
Within our sacred bower
Thorns piercing flesh He says to me
This is the Final Hour.

There’s not much time, My Darling
To seal the bond with Me
Not many days ‘fore going forth
Into all Eternity

Spend time within our bower
Commune with Me in bliss
For soon come I to seize thee
Bestow the Final Kiss…

My Bride must be prepared
Ready, waiting, pure,
One with Me in white love holy
S’all things she can endure

Then come apart, My Darling
Dare to touch each thorn
That pierced My skull and shed My blood
So with purity My Love’s adorned.

God bless each of you,

diana

Singing a Solo

Published by under Spiritual

Last night I had a precious little dream in which I was assembled with a type of heavenly choir…do not know which side of the veil… and we were going to sing unto the Lord. As we started up, I realized that NO ONE ELSE WAS SINGING, but I MUST. As my voice is not as pretty as it used to be, I prayed silently for GRACE to sing this SOLO. It came out so beautifully with His blessing upon it. I can hear the music but cannot recall the words.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I know that the Lord is telling us here that no matter what it is He is asking of us, we have to be obedient. If no other saint or angel is cooperating with the call, we have to do it anyway even at the risk of seeming foolish. Is this not an Abrahamic tale? He set out to a place he knew not where on sheer unadulterated FAITH. So this is a dream about FAITH, and that is what He asks for in this hour! Please read Hebrews 11 again to get inspired for your independent journey with the Lord. And we are, of course, never truly solo as HE is within us!!

We always travel alone
with the Spirit…
No two paths the same.
Although sometimes crossing,
even woven together,
the threads are yet distinct.
The journey we take
to fulfill our destiny
is one of solitude
and submission to the Plan…

In the stillness of the heart
is the Way revealed.

Solitary Rider
by Diana Summers

I will sing unto the Lord
for He has triumphed gloriously…

Exodus 15:1

Now faith is the assurance (the confirmation, the title deed) of the things [we] hope for, being the proof of things [we] do not see and the conviction of their reality [faith perceiving as real fact what is not revealed to the senses.] Hebrews 11:1

The Remnant

Published by under Spiritual

“So too in the present time there is a remnant (a small believing minority), selected (chosen) by grace (by God’s unmerited favor and graciousness).” Romans 11:5

Throughout church history the Lord has maintained a remnant of saints who have gone forth ahead of the nominal believers to carry the torch. Jesus said, “But the gate is narrow (contracted by pressure) and compressed that leads away to life, and few are those who find it.” Matthew 7:14

Truly the remnant that carries the torch has been chosen to go through the narrow gate which few dare to enter, and these are feeling the extreme pressure of the moment.  Thus we can CHOOSE to fill our minds with good and excellent and even lofty thoughts!  It just might relieve some of this pressure.

I am simply setting the stage for a message on the numerous emails being passed around among this remnant Body pertaining to the lack of prayer in our schools, Harry Potter books allowed in public school libraries, Christian symbols and Christianity in general lacking in public buildings especially those of the government at all levels, same sex marriage, and so forth. Clearly all of these things are of the anti-Christ spirit, but Paul tells us from his prison cell, “For the rest, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is worthy of reverence and is honorable and seemly, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely and lovable, whatever is kind and winsome and gracious, if there is any virtue and excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think on and weigh and take account of these things [fix your minds on them].” The Apostle Paul was one of the greatest mystics in the whole Bible and KNEW by way of revelation what he was talking about. It is a psychologically proven fact that we are going to BECOME what we think about!! Now I do not even have to ask you if you want to become like a part of the Babylonian government or become like Christ, the Creator God with His spectacularly beautiful creation. Therefore it is imperative that we FIX our MINDS on our Lord and on all of the wonderful things in our life so that we walk as a people of PEACE, of LOVE, of PRAISE, and of JOY in the midst of all of this darkness. We are somewhat hidden…true…but people within our little spheres know that we are Christians, and they WATCH US!!

America was begun by a group of remnant Christians, but it has changed dramatically in order to fulfill prophecy. As we see the darkness looming all around us, we KNOW that the hour of our going forth is close at hand!! This is indeed a reason to REJOICE!! We must also focus our attention on the way that Jesus Christ modeled for us to walk; He paid NO HEED to the government but pointed ALL to the Kingdom of God. Should we do differently?

Again in the Sermon on the Mount Jesus said, “You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do men light a lamp and put it under a peck measure, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all in the house. Let your light so shine before men that they may see your moral excellence and your praiseworthy, noble, and good deeds and recognize and honor and praise and glorify your Father Who is in heaven.” Matthew 5: 14-16 Wow! How can we be light when we are seemingly so intent at watching and fixing our minds on all of this darkness? What is it about human nature that appears to enjoy bad news? I know you are thinking, “But the Word says that My people shall perish for lack of knowledge. How does that line up with what you are saying, Diana?!” Dear brothers and sisters, of course I am not saying that we should be ignorant of things that are happening in our world, but we must ABIDE in our innerMan and not our outerman. One sister explained it to me once like this, “When I have something to do in the world like paying my bills, it is like I am a spring, and I spring out from my center, but when I have completed the task, I spring right back and get with the Lord fully. He was also with me while paying those bills, but it was not the fullness my heart desires.” That statement made a great impression on me as a young Christian, and I never forgot it.

And then there are saints like Brother Lawrence who are so truly hidden away that they have no interest in what is going on in the world at all. They are lost in God. And is this not our highest calling? We are to be detached from all that binds us to this world in order to achieve that state. Madame Guyonne attained to that. Jane Lead clearly did not spend much time attending to earthly matters unless absolutely necessary. And I am preaching to myself here…trust me! We are all growing together, and we are to build each other up in the principles set forth in the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Proverbs 23:7 says, “For as a man thinketh in his heart, so is he.” Selah. How true!

I feel it would be an extremely excellent exercise to mentally take an inventory of our thought lives throughout each day. This can even be done on paper! When we are heavy with the economy, the disasters, and murders, and wars going on in this world, let us dispel this darkness with PRAISE! Let us praise in the silence of our hearts when afflicted at work or dance in the GLORY of our anointed home environments when we can. I find it a wonderful thing to always have a song or hymn to sing in my mind so that the enemy of my soul cannot invade it.

I heard about a book entitled Who Switched Off My Brain?. The essence of this is that ALL that we see, hear, feel, and taste affects our whole body, either for good or trouble…the cause of much (ALL?) of our ailments. So not only does this wrongful dwelling on “gloom and doom” affect our soul and spirit, it is draining us physically too and damaging our immune systems! There is another book entitled The Brain That Changes Itself by Norman Doidge, M.D. I am not sure exactly what that one is about, but I could guess that it is about our thoughts changing the actual neuro-pathways in our brains or affecting the neuro-transmitters. I believe this is important material for us, and I intend to look through these books at my neighboring Barnes and Noble Bookstore.  When I have more information, I will share it with you.

Please do not think that I do not appreciate your emails on the happenings of the world, but I DO simply skim them. I listen to the news for one half hour per day and hear the major news stories on FOX radio, so I am not ignorant of these things. But to dwell on it, no, no, no!! I also am cognizant of the myriad of things being said about the President of our country, but the Word says that we are to honor those in authority. To me this means praying for the soul of Barack Obama and his family and for Wisdom over him. He is eventually going to be a puppet of the big bankers who have the One World Order already in place, so why blame this man? Why waste our time tearing him down when we could be building him up through prayer?

Finally we must remember the weapons of our warfare as they are outlined in the sixth chapter of Ephesians. The last weapon is to pray without ceasing! How can we do that with so much negativity going on? And why should we spread it around the Body? I love the letters and emails I get that pertain to praise reports, spiritual experiences with the Lord and others, revelation of the Word, and so forth. I love and CHERISH my prayer chamber which is a comfortable old swivel rocker with a slipcover, a Siam canopy, and an ottoman. There I am sealed into the Holy of Holies.

Can we each try to remain in that place and spread the Good News of the Gospel of Jesus Christ around? Let us each aim at forming better mental and spiritual habits during this beautiful time of the year, and then our health might improve also.

“Pray at all times (on every occasion, in every season) in the Spirit, with all [manner of] prayer and entreaty. To that end keep alert and watch with strong purpose and perseverance, interceding in behalf of all the saints (God’s CONSECRATED people.)” (emphasis mine…ds)

 Ephesians 6:18

And we all know that “consecrated” means to be “set apart.” We are citizens of a different Nation altogether, and Jerusalem is the Mother of us all.

Amen.

Sending my love…

I Peter 2:5

 

In a work by the late E.E. Brooks entitled “The Dance of the Virgin,” he explained how the word “dance” means to “birth.” I find that so magnificent for are we not birthing more souls into the Kingdom of God?

I sense that we are each experiencing a mighty interior expectancy as the world grows darker and the Holy Spirit works with vigor preparing us for our ascension in order to do our work in Union with Jesus and Father. Hallelujah!!
