It was a warm, breezy night last night and as I lay on the deck looking at the stars, I began thinking of the golden candlesticks blog and Revelation in general. So many questions, so few answers, and then I had an encounter which left me with even more questions and a serious mind shift.
I asked the Lord to show me how all these things like the trumpets, the bowls, the seals, etc., all fit together and if I even had any understanding of all this stuff at all. I just allowed my thoughts to wonder when I suddenly heard His voice and saw a picture. He said Revelations is like a 3-D/4-D picture puzzle with multiple dimensions that all interact with one another.
It was quite colourful and interesting. Bit like a kaleidoscope. Then the image disappeared, and I was left with my thoughts which drifted between the numbers, letters and symbols in Revelation and how they would now fit into spirit, soul, and body. Then I heard Him whisper that I would need to use all of these if I wanted to unlock its mystery.
How exciting, have no idea where this is going or how it will unfold but this I do know, when the lord begins revealing things to you, He does it line upon line, here a little, there a little, precept upon precept. Simply this means I will not understand everything as it is a process of illumination – or revelation – and that it will be like building a puzzle. Sometimes I just won’t know where a piece fits and some will probably be misfits that will have to be undone. No matter what, my Father is building with me and you’re invited to participate.
So, I went and googled kaleidoscope and there you will find the most beautiful images which reminded me a lot of fractals and Fibonacci scales. If you don’t know what those are go and have some fun. But in a kaleidoscope the images are not fixed, and they change as you turn it around. This means what you see within you will be different to mine. I believe God intended it this way because He never creates anything identical. Similar, but not identical.
Another interesting thought is that some of the images I saw on Google looked like eyes. And Revelation is full of eyes. Eyes are also called “windows to the soul.” Eyes are also portals/doors that open up other dimensions. Beginning to sound like a Si-fi movie. 😂😂 Eyes have black holes! Okay, relax, I am just letting my mind sift through its thoughts. You know you’re allowed to do this right!? You are allowed to explore, ask questions, experience new and wonderful things as you walk through this life with Jesus.
Colossians 2:20 (TPT) For you were included in the death of Christ and have died with Him to the religious system and powers of this world. Don’t retract back to being bullied by the standards and opinions of religion – for example, their strict requirements, “You can’t associate with that person!” or, “Don’t eat that!” or, “You can’t touch that!” These are the doctrines of men and corrupt customs that are worthless to help you spiritually. For though they may appear to possess the promise of wisdom in their submission to God through the deprivation of their physical bodies, it is actually nothing more than empty rules rooted in religious rituals.
I do not believe Jesus came to give us a religion that was sad, boring, ritualistic, self-condemning and restrictive. He came to give us life, joy, righteousness and peace. These are meant to produce the most exciting and wonderful experiences in Him, in His kingdom, in Heaven, in you, in your life, etc. He came to set us free, to empower us and to give us the nations as our inheritance. Heaven is our playground and the earth our inheritance. We were made for such a time, and the time for this is in our own hands. There is nothing to fear and death is not our end, it is our victory.
We’re learning to walk in peace with God and how God crushes Satan under our feet. We are not weak, miserable or defeated. We are the aliens and we’re taking back what rightfully belongs to the sons of God, both in heaven and on earth. Our God is able and wants to do far more than we ask or imagine so let’s get with the program! 😊
Next: The candlestick … maybe.
Have a blissful day!
