307 – Prophetic Revelation Comes to God-Seekers
July 30, 1988
Through our ad, God brought a couple from Naples, New York, and they bought the green van for $900. Praise the Lord. They will pick it up on Monday. A huge hurdle has been surmounted by selling our vehicle. And we are happy with the price.
I’m seeing that in my devotions in Exodus, God was giving me an increase of healthy respect and reverence for Him.
This was imperative, as I was still in the transformation process from being the anti-establishment, rebellious, 1960’s girl, to becoming wholly submitted to my holy and awesome God and His Word.
Exodus 26-28 God’s directions were specific, and obedience to them was required. Aaron had to follow orders or receive the Lord’s disapproval or even die in his ministering in the holy place.
Exodus 30 God’s guidelines were clear: He expected obedience.
God generously gave skills when He called artisans to specific tasks.
Aaron was easily distracted by the people. He was unfaithful to his brother and to God. He left the teachings of God and took the people with him into idolatry.
Exodus 33 Moses was a man who wanted to know God’s ways and God made sure that the people knew that Moses had His favor.
All of this said to me: Listen for the voice of God, respect Him, take Him seriously. Determine to please Him in all things. Expect His blessings, expect His favor! Work with Him and thereby be peaceful and happy.
August 2nd and 4th -more prophetic revelation about THE BABY VISION –from my 6 year old son and a man from Elim
We were setting up the motor home and Markie was sitting on the ‘master bed.’ He said: Mom if you have a baby, if you have two babies, you can change one over here and one over there. (The baby vision was not a subject we brought up for family discussion because it was such a far out topic, so I was completely surprised by Mark’s words. I realized that it was a sort of nudge from the Holy Spirit to my spirit to keep the vision alive, to not neglect it, forget it, dismiss it. Not to let it die.)
Listening to a tape from an Elim Camp Meeting message from last month, Paul Johansson said: “Don’t reveal a revelation! After you get it you must go by way of the cross to be prepared for the actuality of it. ALWAYS!”
Johansson’s exhortation was prophetic for me. The few times I had shared the baby vision people laughed or looked at me blankly. Their incredulity shook my faith. I made it my standard to keep silent about it, and I kept the vision to myself. How precious it was of God to let me have the understanding that I was expected to carry the vision with Jesus alone. (and Dan)
I would ‘carry’ the vision of having more babies for 6 years until God revealed to us the next step in His plan.
From now on, all of the comments that relate to the baby vision will be in green.
