MARCH 17 2001 a description concerning Last Day Church Lord said to me: “Robert, you are always using Old Testament types and shadows to confirm the Word for Church today. Let me explain it to you so you understand clearly. King Solomon’s reign and King David’s reign are both shadows of Church in last days. During this time, you will see the church as I designed it. I will deliver My Church body completely from bondage. My Church will have the splendor and honor of Solomon’s reign and strength and fear of David’s reign”. World today will not see Jesus through the Church, until Church starts seeing Jesus through itself. The modern church needs a fresh Holy Ghost experience of fire. It needs to go into the world showing that Christ operates through them. Yes, Church will experience splendor, honor, and power without fear as they preach like Jesus getting results like the early church. Without question, they are blessed to live in this time of history. Jesus referred to it as His greatest harvest and our greatest joy.
AUGUST 8, 2008 VISION that started with a large enemy army facing a Church building with chariots, horses, bows, and swords. The Church body was praying against this attack and suddenly the wheels fell off the chariots and the horses started falling over dead. Bowmen’s strings broke and arrows fell to ground. The sharp edges of their swords broke off and the enemy fled. The Lord than told the Church people in to go out and pick up the weapons. Only a very few went out of the building to pick up the weapons as the rest stayed inside the building. Those who went outside and picked up the weapons saw their weapons turn into Spiritual weapons (gifts of Spirit) so they could attack worlds’ strongholds. Yet, there were only a very few that responded to God’s instructions to go pick up your weapons. I ask the Lord what will happen now to those who would not go out. His answer was, “If they will not go out and pick up their weapons and claim their victory by defeating their enemy that is on the run, then this same enemy will return fully armed again.”
NOVEMBER 27, 2009 is a full color Vision as all the Visions. Lord showed me a spiritual perspective in the natural turning of His Church right side up. He started by showing me a church pew full of people. I watched saints began to increase their focus toward the outside where people were crying for help. Although I could see the people physically, their spirit was clearest. Slowly they became greater in size merging as one spirit filling entire area around them, above and through them. As my focus became broader I could see the church platform with the leaders watching as though they were also seeing what I was seeing. All at once they started moving off the platform into the pew area. As they did, their individual spirit also merged into one Great Spirit. Now, I could not tell which were leaders or Saints. The spirit was One Spirit through entire church. I did not see anything physically happening, they were all standing together as though they all knew God was doing something supernatural. Lord let me know there would also be persecution from the community, especially leaders more than world. Now, Saints Ministry and Leadership Ministry were one Ministry, one mind and supernatural. Again, Lord switched my focus outside where the world was seeking answers. I saw them being drawn toward the leaders and Saints that when out. Now, both Leaders and Saints were outside where they could be seen by world while Spirit was bringing their focus toward. I did not see any physical contact because I was focused on Spirit at work, not the physical. Suddenly the Spiritual manifestations of miracles started happening everywhere. Yes, God’s Team went forward increasing Church body and continued increasing, growing glorious and stronger while God turned Church right side up working their ministries, Lord summed it up from His Word till we all come in unity and knowledge of fullness no longer tossed to and fro by every wind of mans doctrines, but speaking truth, growing into Christ the head, as a whole body.
APRIL 1, 2010 VISION of end time Church is different than mankind thinks! May not look like what many visualize. There will be great difficulty making changes God requires during last days. Leadership may have most difficult time accepting responsibilities. Saints may be more challenged in acceptance and work for Kingdom. Church structure plus responsibilities may be difficult for all believers to adjust to positions of responsibility of focusing on training and leading people grown comfortable. Some leaders may leave ministry because they have built it around themselves, some may blame God. Christ body will not be made of positions or organizations, but believers ministering in homes, workplace, streets and wherever needed. Yes, God will be confirmed through healings, deliverances, spiritual gifts, and multitudes being saved. All Christians will be trained and equipped to grow God’s Kingdom reaching out for the lost, salvation and their training new believers. Lord let me know that the growth of salvation and Jesus’ Kingdom will be ministered through both leaders and congregations working together as His complete Body focused on building Jesus’ kingdom so He can return and take His Throne.
JANUARY 1, 2011 I asked Lord what these coming years will hold. His response was that He would move across the land like a calm relaxing breeze, although feeling like a warm air filled with Divine Power ready to manifest willing to receive Him. Christians followers would be like animals with nose lifted in air to catch familiar scent. They would be looking for His scent to spot His Divine Glory for Spiritual Power standing in Divine Brilliant Power like never experienced or seen. He will not be seen or heard like a rushing storm, but a quite breeze. To be seen would require an effort to hear. This will only takes place when someone is searching for they are expecting. Jesus’ entire being will be manifested throughout lands, powered with authority and love being perfected through the Body of Christ. It will be a time the Church has their focus manifesting through seeking Him. His work will be unnoticed by the masses, manifested through a unique portion of Jesus’ Body of true Believers.
