God’s Furnace Miracle

I want to share a miracle that Jesus performed for my mother this past weekend.   For the past month our basement has been flooded.. a lot of the flooding was caused by two feet of snow melting rather quickly and Spring rains,. and the fact that our home is built upon a wetland area in a rural area.

Due to the basement flooding, our furnace was adversely affected and  wouldn’t turn on.    Our basement is also overly crowded with piles of old clothes and other items my mother hoarded so there is no way a repair person would ever agree to come into our basement with 6 ” of water, floating garbage,  rats,   and barely any room to walk through the narrow “pathways” to get to the furnace.

She mentioned, “Maybe God will give us a miracle”   while she installed a sump pump in one area of the basement.     Weeks went by., and my mother and father either took showers over my sister’s home,   or at the physical therapy rehab center they go swimming at once a week.    I took sponge baths , and washed in our church’s basement when I could.     I resigned myself that the furnace would never get fixed..   until maybe next November with the danger of freezing pipes come Winter.        I wanted so badly to help my mother with the basement, but my job has been basically requiring I work about 20 hours overtime and this also involves Saturdays as well.

This past Saturday while I was at work,  my mother , with her boots on, was wading in the basement toward the furnace.. and then attempted about 15 times to push in the furnace stoker button .    The furnace would kick in for a few seconds, but the button would pop back out right afterwards, and the furnace would stop again.    “God doesn’t care” she said to herself, as she turned away from the furnace   when suddenly she heard our Lords’ voice .

“Turn around, “Doubting Thomas!”,  He said , and so she turned around toward the furnace. and in shock while staring at the button,  she saw it push DOWN all “by itself” as though by an invisible hand pressing it in.    The furnace kicked on after 5 weeks of not working, and the button remained pressed down.  It did not pop back up.     Now that red stoker button on the furnace will never press in by itself.  It will only pop up ,.  but will never accidentally press in.  The only way it will is if someone actually presses it in.

She was elated and shocked, and the reality that God hears everything and is truly REAL hit her big time.   It taught both of us to give God a chance, and wait HIS timing.   There was a divine purpose that He permitted us to suffer this temporary hardship of no furnace..  though it could have been much worse and happened during the coldest part of the Winter.  Hardships He permits are good for our spirits.,      Throughout this time of enduring without a furnace,  I kept on asking the Lord about this, and kept getting rhemas regarding how not one hair falls off of our heads without God being aware of it… Or to thank Him for trials He permits.      On His own timing,  He delivered us from this trial.   and We are both grateful to Him 🙂

My First Spiritual Image of Me and God

4-20-2017

As I was in prayer today and during my worship time, I started to pray about the need of a friend in the spiritual realm.  I started talking to Abba and as I was speaking to Him I began to visualize  me as a four -year- old child sitting on the Fathers lap in front of a river while He was sitting on this beautiful rock.  All of the sudden I could see the image and as I was seeing the image I started to describe it out loud.

” I feel like a child sitting in Gods lap sobbing with my head resting on His chest. His hair white and long, dress in a white rob with a sleeveless red cover with gold trims and a gold belt, on His head this magnificent gold crown with many crosses and in each cross there were emeralds, sapphires and rubies adorning it with many, many diamonds. It was very sparkly is what I thought been a child.

Flowers were all over the shore of the lake and trees, tall tress and birds singing and worshiping the Lord. Rabbits show up to drink water, a lion, a giraffe came for leaves, a panther sat by His side and then the Lion by mine. The rabbits were playing together and then some squirrels show up jumping form tree to tree and deer drinking water and eating the apples from the trees, it was like a dream. This image became so explicit. The flowers dancing to the sound of the birds and me sobbing in His chest.

He ask me why I’m sobbing? I reply, my friend has a wound in her heart. You are the only one that can help her, there is no one else. Will you help her? He smiles, and said “Of course I will help her. You say there is no one else. What Father will not help His children when they are in despair?”

I immediately knew that everything will be OK.

I stay there rejoicing with Him and the animals in the lake for a while longer.

Thank You God for this beautiful picture in the spirit realm. Thank you. To You be the glory and all praises dear Lord. Amen!

While We Slept..

You know how it is said He prayed in the night..(as the others slept) He prayed to His Father for hours in the evening?  I was thinking of that ..then this vision went through me as I wanted to console Him or just keep Him loving company from a poor soul He died for:

So here I am from 2017 ( already knowing He would die for us and redeem us…) I see Him in a sort of clearing away from the others following Him – I did not see them asleep.  But there was our Beloved (and this is for all ) kneeling down on the cold ground – I knew somehow it would be colder then, and when I was with Him there praying, very respectfully I walked slowly (on His left side – )  I had on a long sort of white or soft ecru dress to my ankles I would say..younger than I am – my hair was up but I was carrying a white colored blanket for it was cold (I sensed) and I walked over softly while He was praying to His Father.  He did not see me or know I was there (from our time..yeesh)
I was standing (this is all so clear) as I had walked over to Him and was slightly bending down and He turned gently and looked up at me and I said…very softly…I don’t want to disturb You, (as He was in deep prayer) but if you would want me to, would you like me to pray with You?  He looked up at me, and seeing He was feeling the cold too, I put the white blanket over His shoulders and I knelt next to Him – again as I said- on His left.  Then I put the other part of this blanket over my shoulders and we knelt side by side – He put His arm about my waist and I put my right arm about His waist, as the blanket covered us both nicely that way… then we put our free hands together and our fingers entwined..as we just looked at each other with much tenderness… and He put His face next to mine…(so sweet and tender) – and we prayed as that.  Like almost two children praying to our Father.  It was so sweet.  He never said a word and I just assume from this vision we just continued to pray together to the Father, and He would now and then just give me a little kiss on the cheek while we knelt that way( I know for a time.  ) Yet this vision was not long.   I just wanted to be with Him in this clearing to pray with Him and not leave Him alone.  And He was cold.
So that is how this came to me in my spirit.  We are able to in spirit use our imagination to be with Him or anyone, even His Mother Mary or anyone…in their time with Him – He takes it FOR REAL.  Since time is always present to Him.  Lovely!  And for all.
 I pray this encourages others to “visit” Him..esp. in the Garden of Olives where He suffered so much!  It is like when you were with Him in the prison.  This was sort of the same thing, except before His Passion – still teaching and healing I assume, and traveling with His Apostles +
Oh I remember something..how could I forget, dear – there was a prayer I said while kneeling….( one remembers if I visited Him from our time…I could say such a  prayer that would only make sense to Jesus and His Father, so I felt that was unique.)
Knowing while I was by His side like that in this field or clearing, that He was to die for us, and in 2017 I knew this already, my prayer was different perhaps, indeed, but not out of place.  I composed this prayer in my heart while with Him and said the following. Not long, but from my heart.
He just looked tenderly at me while we knelt there and I said to the Father:
Father, I thank You for Your Son Jesus who shed His Blood for us sinners, redeeming us and saving us….I knew it was a prayer He would understand fully…um…”even if it was in the future” and one the Father would accept since I was “visiting” Jesus in this time from “our time”  He sees….all at once +
So this is my account of what transpired, and again, anyone . . . can do this.  This just flowed through me and He was so real and it was so loving being there in “spirit” hoping I was some kind of consolation, even if in a small way.
