Jesus’s Visitations

jesus_066

Matthew 24: 44  “Therefore you also must be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.”

In the Song of Solomon, Chapter 5,  the Shulamite woman was not ready for the Beloved when His hand was on the latch of her door.   Though she was intimate with Him,  her spirit  stirring at His very presence, her soul failed her as she did not want to be inconvenienced in having to get back up from bed.   It is similar with the five foolish Virgins.  All ten virgins in the parable had a level of relationship with Jesus Christ, yet only five were ready to meet their Bridegroom at His arrival.  The other five allowed other things to take priority over their Beloved.   When the call came for their Bridegrooms soon arrival, they found they had little oil left in their lamps..  They  never made a point to cultivate their relationship with the Holy Spirit, and had never gone beyond receiving Jesus as not only their Savior, but also the Lord and King of their hearts.    When the Bridegroom arrived,  they cried for Him to open the door for them, but it remained shut.  He never knew them., because they never allowed themselves to get to know HIM.

Getting back to the Shulamite woman in the Song of Solomon,  there is a prophetic correlation between her experience and the disciples’ experience of sleeping in Gethsemane while Jesus was asking , “Could you not watch and pray with me for one hour?”  At the end of verse 1, Chapter 5, we read: “Eat, oh friends, and drink;  drink deeply, oh Lovers.”  This verse seems prophetic of when Jesus broke the bread and offered His disciples wine in the upper room.    “Take , eat- this is My body broken for you.”  With the wine, He said, “Drink of it;  all of you, for this is My blood of the covenant which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.” This intimate moment between Jesus, our Bridegroom and His disciples was truly a sacred event.. no doubt with tears of emotion shared between them as they shared that bread and wine.. in rememberance of Him, and His Sacrifice He was about to do for all mankind’s sake.    Jesus, full of tenderness , could truly say with passion to His disciples, and all who sincerely take Holy Communion, “Eat, oh friends, and drink;  drink deeply, Oh lovers!”

In verse 2 of Song of Solomon, the Shulamite woman continues:  “I slept but My heart was awake.  Hark!  My Beloved is kneeling.   “Open to Me, My sister, My love, My dove, My perfect one- for My head is wet with dew, My locks with the drops of the night.”   Her Beloved had just endured the labor of spiritual battle against the Enemy.  It was so intense that His hair was wet with perspiration .. from the events of the night.  No doubt, He sought solace and encouragement from the one He loved, but she was too comfortable  to get out of her bed to open the door for  Him.  When she finally made the effort, He had departed

In Gethsemane, Jesus , also, endured great spiritual attack from the forces of darkness, where His hair and body was drenched with His own perspiration..  as though drenched in blood.  (and it is quite probable that His perspiration was also mixed with actual blood).   “My Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from Me;  nevertheless not as I will, but as Thou wilt.”  He cried to the Father after falling on His face in agonizing prayer.  Scripture continues:  “And He came to the disciples and found them sleeping and He said to Peter, “so could you not watch with Me for one hour?”  “Watch and pray that you may not enter temptation.  The spirit, indeed, is willing but the flesh is weak.”

Just as with the Shulamite in the Song of Solomon,  Jesus’s closest disciples gave into their flesh and failed to be available when their Bridegroom needed them the most.   Notice how the scripture is worded, “He Came” to the disciples.  Just as the Beloved CAME to the Shulamite at an inconvenient time for her,  our Lord often comes to us.. when we least expect or are ready for Him.    There are many visitations Jesus gives us, before His Final Return on this Earth.

In verse 6 of Song of Solomon, we read:  “I opened to My Beloved, but My Beloved had turn and gone.  My soul failed Me when He spoke.  I sought Him but found Him not.  I called Him but He gave no answer.”   In Matthew 26:  45-46, we are shown how Jesus was taken away from His disciples.   Seized by the temple guards right after they awoke from their slumber.   Ready to surrender Himself to His enemies, and knowing they were about to take Him, verse 45 reads:  “Then He came to His disciples and said to them, “Are you still sleeping and taking your rest?  Behold, the hour is at hand and the Son of Man is betrayed into the hands of sinners.”     While His disciples were not ready or prepared , Jesus , Himself, was always alert and prepared for His Father’s will.   Nothing caught Him off guard.. no matter how inconvenient the situation was.  So abandoned is He to the Father’s will.

After Jesus surrendered Himself to the temple guards and was taken away,  His disciples could then say with the Shulamite woman:   “I opened to My Beloved, but My Beloved had turned and gone.  My soul failed Me when He spoke.”…    And after the three long days of hiding after Jesus was put to death by crucifixion and His body had “disappeared” from His tomb, they could also say, ”  I sought Him but found Him not.  I called Him, but He gave no answer.”

After Jesus’s resurrection, He came to them again.. behind locked doors., and there was much rejoicing.   He, in His mercy, came to them, even though they had left Him alone at His most vulnerable moments before His death.

How ironic and typical our human nature is that we get so easily offended in God when it seems HE is being  quiet, and unresponsive toward us,  yet when HE knocks on the doors of our hearts, we have no problem ignoring Him.    Recall the incident when Jesus was asleep on the disciples boat during a storm over the Sea of Galilee.  Jesus was asleep, but His spirit was very much awake, and was aware of what was going on.   In fear, the disciples  awoke Him with a tone of resentment, “Master, do you care not that we perish!?”, they said.   He calmly sat up in the boat, rebuked the sea and the waves, and asked them, “why are you still afraid.  Do you still have no faith?”

I just now asked Jesus in prayer, if He would allow me to open up to something of His recorded words from “He and I” pertaining to this topic (since this is HIS blog)..   and wow, here is what He had me open up to! :

“…In the very place where I want your love, beyond and above all things.  Above all things- that is where I Am.   Rise to meet Me.  Always.”

Communion with Our Lord

I had an almost tangible experience of Jesus at Communion the other day, not His face, but the side of His face with beautiful, soft, brown, flecked hair. It took my breath away! Thank you, Jesus, for your presence, and for answering our prayers given up for these little souls.💝💝💝

At Heaven’s Shore

 

1f6ea95f374f8f2d1307c0050899b593

Today I had what I believe was my first visitation to a secret heavenly place. I was walking with Jesus in a beautiful wooded area by a sparkling lake. I kept hearing what sounded like tiny bells or wind chimes. Jesus stopped by the lakeshore and began skipping stones that just appeared in His hands.

He told me my brother was waiting to meet me, the one my parents lost almost 40 years ago. Jesus kept insisting I hurry along the shore to this brother I didn’t know I had, because I was reluctant to leave His side. Right before I reached this man standing a few yards away I woke from the vision. It was broad daylight, I was awake sitting in a chair. I felt a promise in the air. This evening I called my mother and I told her about the vision. She confirmed there was a miscarriage before my living brother was conceived. I’m anxious to learn this man’s name. My mom’s guess was Matthew or Matty (to her). I feel the Lord so close to me right now, I can’t explain it. Did I mention I heard angels singing? Anyway I hope this testimony to the sweetness and gentleness of Jesus lifts someone’s heart up to Him. God bless heartdwellers 💖

“…..No Matter What”

03f16c3205bc64ce70721dcdd2cdf919

I want to share something with you guys that will be of some encouragement. I am awestrucked and speechless physically because of the revelation I had received from Jesus or the Father.  I was in prayer and normally doing what I do in prayer.

While in worship I felt a strong sense, a presence that Jesus (actually so strong I seen a quick flash physically in my brain of His face) and it um, I was nervous… but at the same time drawn to this and comforted by this.  I felt him inches from my face and I knew it was him.  I couldn’t focus because I was so struck by this but I continued worshipping Him quietly.  Then I felt him move next to me and put His arms around my shoulders like a big brother or father would to his little brother or child. Then I rocked left to right knowing that he was right there and the image of him doing it.

THEN! Guys, I heard clearly and plainly in my mind “You are still my son. And I will always love you, no matter what.” That struck me. That really struck me. Like, all of what I done against GOD, how on earth could he still love me. Dumbfounded by this personally.

I continued to worship and I am so taken up by those words and the presence of Love and comfort was in there. After this, I checked the bible promise and gotten “Children”. Isaiah 54:13. This is a comfirmation to me that was him because I don’t have any children and yes, I am his son and he is teaching me. But what’s best is, I KNEW by Faith that was him. That was him and I knew it. Never have I before wanted to go back into prayer like I do now to have a love encounter with him again.

Jesus, You Are My Light

50b3912d7f57e7e2a5f648d14975f97d

A couple years ago I was taking a walk to pick up my son and it was dark, the sun had gone down. I asked Yeshua to please let me know if he was walking with me, all of a sudden little sparkles like tiny fireworks went off in front of me and then I looked down and it was as if someone was walking next to me swinging their arm with a flashlight. Oh what a blessing of an evening it was, one I will NEVER forget! Thank you my Lord for showing you walk with us! I have had many other miracles happen, which I don’t deserve but so grateful!

You Are My Sunshine

005

I got this message a few days ago when I felt sad and distant from God. Today I feel that I should share it with everyone because it’s brought me so much comfort.

Jesus: I don’t want you to think that I don’t care about you, because I do. More than you can imagine. You are my sweet Bride who brings me comfort and joy on the darkest days. You’re my personal ray of sun, shining in between the dreary stormclouds. If I lost you, I don’t know what I’d do. Hearing this makes me think of the song “You are my Sunshine,” a song my mom would sing to me when I was little

Me: Isn’t that how you’d feel if you lost anyone, not just me?

Jesus: Yes, but you are special to me. You’re worth fighting for. If you asked me what makes you unique, I’d go on and on for days talking about everything I love about you. Me: Jesus, I don’t love myself. I can’t forgive myself for my sins. Jesus: Oh, it’s always the same with you. You feel bad for what you’ve done so you run away from Me, when you should be running towards Me. J

Just then, my dad was trying my sister’s attention. He was trying to show her the beautiful rays of sunshine peeking out in between the grey stormclouds.

Don’t Leave Our Lord Lonely

b6ecfeba552694d5031f9eb68e46844c

I had a vision few days ago where I walked into a garden and saw Yeshuah sitting on a bench with his head bowed low. I approached him and ask what is the matter with you Lord? He turned in my direction and said … I miss you so much! There were tears in his eyes. His answer startled me and I stood back in shock. I felt so broken by his visible sadness. Then he questioned me as to why I am acting so surprised. He knew that I was perplexed by the fact that he missed me.

He then asked me another astounding question, he said: is our relationship not real to you? Do you not know that i love you and I long for you? Can my heart not break because of your absence?

Beloved, I fail to find proper words to express how I felt at that moment. The word that has come to Clare today is 100% authentic. This is how the Lord feels at present and there are many of us who can confirm this truth with their very own experiences in dreams, visions, prophecies, visitations, etc

Bless you Clare! Shalom 🕊
