God spoke to me yesterday of numerology. We are to consider how God placed importance on the order and pattern of numerals in scripture. It is a defining pattern He set in place. He is a God of order and discipline and sets out His order through numerals as He shows us in scripture.
Don't wait and be found by the Lord to be unfinished and unfulfilled in His purposes. Be about His purposes now. Be found a "good and faithful servant" to the Lord. Love Him with all your heart, with all your mind and with all your strength.
In His love and Spirit,

Sister in Jesus; similar qualities you see in yourself or someone else; herself; the Church. (Matt. 12: 50; Rom. 14: 10-21; 16: 1; 2 John 13; Hebrews 13: 3; Amos 1; 9; 1 Cor. 1: 1; 8: 11-13; Luke 10: 38-42; 2 Thess. 3: 6, 15; James: 1: 9; 2: 15; 1 Timothy 5: 2
I noticed her normally pretty blonde hair
Hair: Covering; covenant; too much attention paid to detail; absolute safety; respect; grief; attractiveness; affliction; destruction; fall; great numbers; humanity; numbered on our head showing His love for us; the old sin nature; doctrine; tradition; on body standing up means fear. (Pro. 16: 31; 31: 30; Hos. 7: 9; Ps. 40: 12; 1 Cor. 11:14-15; Lev. 19: 27; 1 Sam. 14: 45; 2 Sam. 14; 25, 26; Judges 16: 17, 22; 20: 16; Is. 3: 17, 24; Song 5: 2, 11; Job 4: 14-15; Ezra 9: 3; Jer. 7: 29; John 11: 2; Luke 7: 38)
was standing about 8 inches high
Eight: Circumcision of the flesh; liberty; salvation; new beginning; resurrection life; die to self. (Gen. 17: 12; 1 Peter 3: 20-21; 2 Chron. 29: 17; 2 Peter 1: 14)
in spikes all over her head.
This is very out of the ordinary and quite unusual behavior for this particular person.
7Thus says the Lord of hosts: If you will walk in My ways and keep My charge, then also you shall rule My house and have charge of My courts, and I will give you access [to My presence] and places to walk among these who stand here.
8Hear now, O Joshua the high priest, you and your colleagues who [usually] sit before you--for they are men who are a sign or omen [types of what is to come]--for behold, I will bring forth My servant the [b]Branch.(B)
9For behold, upon the stone which I have set before Joshua, upon that one stone are seven eyes or facets [the all-embracing providence of God and the sevenfold radiations of the Spirit of God]. Behold, I will carve upon it its inscription, says the Lord of hosts, and I will remove the iniquity and guilt of this land in a single day.(C)

I knew the Lord was speaking to me strong today when he gave me two identical verses from two different books of the Bible. It was the story of throwing the first stone at the sin of others. It's so easy to recognize the sin in another's life, and so worldly to disregard the sin in our own lives.
What caught my attention even more than the story of the prostitute was the fact that Jesus went to the fig tree because He was hungry. The humanness of this is overwhelming to me. I often forget the human qualities and characteristics Christ had to overcome to remain in His perfection. The prophetic statements He made in the scripture in John 8 and Mark 11 reveals His "God side" and the fact that He fully knew what the end result of His ministry here would be. The fact that He cursed the fig tree saying, "man would not eat it's fruit" showed His disappointment and willingness to accept the human side of things. He could have caused fruit to immediately appear, but He embraced the humanness of His existence to demonstrate His love for and understanding of our needs and desires.
When I stopped to pray and thank God for His mercy and love, I saw a date stamp. God began speaking to me about recording events and documenting very accurately and plainly all that He is explaining to me and teaching me.
As I look back on previous notations, I don't remember writing much of it. I remember the message and it still stirs reaction deep in my spirit, but it doesn't bring to memory the recording of the message. This confirms to me that it is the Spirit speaking to me and I am blessed beyond measure when I recognize His hand upon me.
His love fails not ...

I want to write of the massacre tat happened there in the early 1900’s . . . but with a focus on the ‘healing process’ tat has gotten the two nations to where they are now . . . and what part faith / religion had to play in that healing process. There is so much shit going on up in that area . . . I thought this year I’m going to look at a different angle . . . and ask the question if they could play a part in the peace process that is unfolding in that area. The war in Iraq is about to take a turn that no one is going to believe possible . . . . its going to be a dark day . . . But there is love, there is forgiveness . . . but are we all so tired that we forget how to love and forgive ? The hearts of the Arminians are a key to the stability in that region . . . .
We are all moving so fast . . . we as a planet need to stop being led by this senseless merry go round of wars and wars and heal . . . This is just how it is I know when I start writing the readers will not be ready to hear this message . . . but it’s what I gotta write . . . soon they will see Yeah . . . I believe there is a really nasty turn coming up in the war in Iraq . . . and the US is not undecided about Iran either even though the votes in the senate are a little more measured. There is a shuffling to keep the traders happy but the real powerbrokers are in the backrooms preparing for an all out assault. . just as the were months before Hiroshima and Bush wouldn’t leave the Iran issue as it stands with the next president . . His ego just wouldn’t let him. The congressional mid-terms are over and the seat of power has shifted . . but has it really ? Some say the Neocons are planning a bomb type tactic for Iran . . . I sure as hell hope not . . but the vibrations are strong out there. Aggressive preemption just has to be a thing of the past I’m hoping . . .
Wow. It must be difficult to see the reality of it all and know that it will ultimately affect every portion of the world. The effects will be felt by us all.
It is up to us to speak peace and blessings into the world and to stand exactly where God has placed us as watchmen over the Kingdom gates. We must be diligent in what we are called to and be steadfast in our faith and our hope, the hope that we have in Christ and Christ alone.
I pray protection and mercy over those who are in danger's way. I pray blessings over those who are in the midst of the battles ministering to and loving the lost in those areas.
May God have mercy on us all and provide wisdom and discernment in all things.
In the name of Jesus,

Intense prayer time this morning in the Spirit led me to take account of all the areas in my life where there might be the appearance of indiscretion and how it damages our testimony and ability to witness to those who would see it through fleshly eyes. God continues to remind me of His call to integrity and honorable living. We are to be ever mindful of how our actions are scrutinized by the world. We are not to turn our backs on those who would unknowingly put our character in compromising positions, but we are to be ever aware of how we reflect Christ and how innocent loved ones perceive situations. We are to reach out in love and mercy, but also the guard our hearts and our spirits from those who are not fully controlled by God's Holy Spirit in their discernment and actions.
God led me to this prayer to pray over myself and all those I love and cherish.

At one point I was with Beth and we were running to catch a bus. I realized I had forgotten my purse and wouldn't have my keys to get in and start the car. (running ahead of provision, forgetting the One who provides). She ran ahead looking back at me and I turned and went back to get my purse.
Another segment ...
I was at the hospital visiting a sick (?) friend, Brian. I remember laying beside him and just holding him next to me. There were many people there, however, our spirits were connected seeming intertwined and I knew that this was leaving me "naked"/exposed before everyone who was there to be with him. I denied the feeling of exposure and vulnerability and continued to rock and cradle him in my arms, close to me.
I looked out the window and noticed that one of the young women/nurses, had left the room and was standing outside the window crying and praying over us because she was so moved by the power of the Spirit in the room.
Another segment ...
A flash of family friends from my childhood and the siblings were visiting with us. The younger one had all of her dolls and figurines, etc. lined up along in front of and on the top of her pillows on her bed. One of them, something similar to a Troll Doll, made her uncomfortable and she said it was an evil spirit. I was explaining to her in the dream that they (the spirits) are real and travel from person to person in search of an open door to enter in to and reside. If they can't find a person immediately then they will reside where ever they can waiting for admission to another person's spirit.
God is showing me we are not to get ahead of Him in following or moving with people we know here. Keeping up with them and hurrying to keep their pace will distract us and cause us to forget that He has provision for us. We are to be ever mindful of His guiding and provision.
There will be times when we are in vulnerable and exposed situations providing spiritual comfort, healing and restoration for those we love and care about. Our outward gestures will move others to a point of awakening and renewal that is an outward expression of their desire to be in relationship with and to be cared for by God.
We are not to ignore the subtle discernment in our spirit as God teaches and warns us about the spiritual realm. Spiritual warfare and spiritual movement is not always evident to the naked eye, but our spiritual eyes reveal it to us and God gives to us power to deal with the evil.
To God be the glory ...

I've been praying about cutting the dosage in half to see if it will help me to be more alert during my waking hours and to increase my ability to remember the dreams God gives me. God is being diligent in working with me until such time as the medications are regulated. He wakes me up frequently during the night so that I can process what I've been shown before moving on to sleep again and receive more of what He has for me.
I'm still having a lot of difficulty remembering everything, and usually only succeed in remembering one main dream segment a night. This is not nearly complete enough for my comfort, and I know that God will resolve the problem in His perfect timing.
However, when I awoke at 1:23 or 2:34 this morning (I woke both times, but can't remember which time the Lord gave me this vision), as I was going back to sleep I saw a "membrane" stretched before me. I could see the elbows, knees, faces, hands, arms, etc. of people trying to push through the membrane. I remember thinking, "Huh, that looks like an eardrum/tympanic membrane." As I was drifting off I could almost hear the Lord saying, they are attempting to push through, but they aren't hearing me.
"There is no true joy or happiness to be found apart from Me."
Then the Lord led me to this scripture (I'm pulling from The Message because it aligned so significantly with the vision the Lord gave me). I can't help but ask, are we truly pushing through to get to Jesus? Are we diligently seeking Him as we would seek sustenance if we were impoverished? Only this type of pushing through difficulties and everyday life situations will bring us face-to-face and heart-to-heart with the Father. This is where we will find our pure joy. The joy God intended for us when He created us. In constant fellowship and communion with us, spirit to Spirit.
Ecclesiastes 6 (The Message)
The Message (MSG)
Things Are Bad 1-2 I looked long and hard at what goes on around here, and let me tell you, things are bad. And people feel it. There are people, for instance, on whom God showers everything—money, property, reputation—all they ever wanted or dreamed of. And then God doesn't let them enjoy it. Some stranger comes along and has all the fun. It's more of what I'm calling smoke. A bad business.
3-5 Say a couple have scores of children and live a long, long life but never enjoy themselves—even though they end up with a big funeral! I'd say that a stillborn baby gets the better deal. It gets its start in a mist and ends up in the dark—unnamed. It sees nothing and knows nothing, but is better off by far than anyone living.
6 Even if someone lived a thousand years—make it two thousand!—but didn't enjoy anything, what's the point? Doesn't everyone end up in the same place? 7 We work to feed our appetites; Meanwhile our souls go hungry.
8-9 So what advantage has a sage over a fool, or over some poor wretch who barely gets by? Just grab whatever you can while you can; don't assume something better might turn up by and by. All it amounts to anyway is smoke. And spitting into the wind. 10 Whatever happens, happens. Its destiny is fixed. You can't argue with fate.
11-12 The more words that are spoken, the more smoke there is in the air. And who is any better off? And who knows what's best for us as we live out our meager smoke-and-shadow lives? And who can tell any of us the next chapter of our lives?

In one segment of the dream I was with a young woman who was lying in a hospital bed. She looked to be in her late 20's or early 30's with pale, porcelain skin and blond hair. I was holding her hand and felt the pain of her heart as she laid in bed wondering where her husband was. It was not the physical illness that was of concern to the Lord, it was her emotional and spiritual struggle that was manifesting in the physical.
The next segment revealed a young boy that appeared to be about nine or ten years old. He had what appeared to be a neck collar/brace around his torso. I felt it had something to do with his ribcage and immediately was amazed that "the fall" hadn't killed him. His mother was beside him and there seemed to be no concern in either of them. They were watching cartoons. There was no recognition or praise for this life that had been spared.
The third segment showed a lot of activity around a young woman, in possibly her early twenties. Her face or appearance was not significant in that I don't remember anything except that there were many physicians gathered around her. I held her hand as she received a recommendation from one of the physicians telling her something about surgery (I perceived it to be a sinus problem). She looked at me, squeezed my hand and said, "Okay." There was a peace about the situation and she was quite content with love being passed between us through holding hands.
