Rest In The Lord
Recently I was caught up in a vision and the Lord ushered me into His presence where I was changed as I was being prepared to meet the Lord.
My physical nature had changed and It was as if the angels were preparing me to meet Him. 1 Corinthians 15:52; "It will happen in a moment, in the blink of an eye, when the last trumpet is blown. For when the trumpet sounds, those who have died will be raised to live forever. And we who are living will also be transformed". I had truly left my mortal body in this vision.
In the vision I sensed that I died and had gone to heaven. Literally, I felt the separation from this physical world. Yet, I had no regret or fear of leaving. I was drawn into His presence. The scene all around me was surreal and I sensed that I was in another realm (heavenly realm). 2 Corinthians 5:8; "We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body and to be present with the Lord". I was caught up in the presence of the Lord and I did not want to leave. I was accepted here in His dwelling place.
As I began to transcend and ascend higher I sensed a peace, purity, and rest as I had never before. I was immediately engulfed in His presence and it was as if His arms were all around me and His presence was moving through me. It felt so good to be there. There was a sense of awe and reverence as I didn't want this moment to end. I had no worries and no bad memories from the carnal world that followed me in His dwelling place. I was at rest! Hebrews 4:10; "For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as God did from his". I smelled a hint of sweet bread and a clean soap. John 6:32-35; "Jesus said to them, “Very truly I tell you, it is not Moses who has given you the bread from heaven, but it is my Father who gives you the true bread from heaven. For the bread of God is the bread that comes down from heaven and gives life to the world.” “Sir,” they said, “always give us this bread.”
Then Jesus declared, “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty. I snuggled in; as I would right after retrieving a hot blanket out of a warm dryer, on a cool winter's night, and I wanted to hold on tight to His presence and His peace. I felt love, joy, and His goodness all round me. Psalms 16:11; "Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore".
When this encounter with the Lord ended, I began to process this moment with the Lord. As I sat before Him; He told me some very important things.
