Get your hands off my bicycle! This week we're comparing two movies about bicycle theft and so much more. Representing the arthouse, it's the 1948 Italian Neorealist classic Bicycle Thieves directed by Vittorio de Sica. And representing the mainstream, it's Tim Burton's 1985 feature film debut Pee-Wee's Big Adventure starring Paul Ruebens. Which one will enter the canon? And which one will be tossed in the trash canon? Listen to find out! Plus we play a round of the fun new movie game Theft or Homage!

Guarding the House From Our Enemies (3) (Audio) David Eells - 8/7/22 The “Beautiful Serpent” Returns To Destruction Claire Pienaar - 7/25/22 (David's notes in red) I dreamed I was at a large American-styled school in a cafeteria and I was happy. I seemed to only be observing in this dream. (A cafeteria is a place where food is served. There is healthy food and junk food to choose from. We must make the right healthy choices of what we feed our spiritual man so that we can be effective to fight the enemy and our old flesh nature. Rom 8:13 for if ye live after the flesh, ye must die; but if by the Spirit ye put to death the deeds of the body, ye shall live.) My old school friends were huddled together, and they were acting very strange. Their behavior made me think they were drug addicts, but I pushed it far from my mind. (Riaan: Old friends represent past struggles or addictions; demons previously overcome in our lives who are huddling together to look for a way back in.) (These can be addictions of the old man to anything or idolatry with anything that has become more important in our daily lives than God. They take away our time from Him and Kingdom matters.) The cafeteria changed to a field and war zone. (Riaan: This is a spiritual war). Many Army men were taking down these drug addicts. (Representing warring angels who fight on our behalf when we invoke the Word of God.) (Riaan: The angels are ministering servants that have their orders from the Lord to obey the Word and take out these demons by the authority of Christ). (Heb. 1:13-14 But of which of the angels hath he said at any time, Sit thou on my right hand, Till I make thine enemies the footstool of thy feet? 14 Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to do service for the sake of them that shall inherit salvation?) One of my drug addict friends was a lady named Linda. (Riaan: Linda means "beautiful serpent.") Linda's boyfriend whose name was Brett, hated to do it, but, he shot Linda because she was so evil. (Brett means “A man from Britain or Brittany. Briton was one of the places the Roman Empire beast that could not gain a foothold in. It caused much embarrassment to the Romans. So Brett represents my spirit man which is much bigger than the addictive sin nature. [When we walk and talk by faith.]) She was pregnant and cried out to get someone to save the baby. Her blood was running everywhere. (The baby represents the fruit of the old man and the blood; his nature.) I was watching all of this, in plain sight and nothing was happening to me. (Claire was supernaturally protected on the battlefield. Linda the beautiful serpent enemy disguised as a friend will contiue to try to bring forth the fruit of the old nature.). The entire field looked like a bloodbath. (It is the battlefield of the mind where we conquer our old nature and the fiery darts of the enemy or they conquer us. The blood of the old man is conquered by the new man, "Christ in you the hope of glory".) Then something very strange happened. Linda (the beautiful serpent) was raised from the dead; not in a good way but in a fearful way. (Rom 8:13 for if ye live after the flesh, ye must die; but if by the Spirit ye put to death the deeds of the body, ye shall live.) She was now even worse; she had more addictive and maniacal behavior and her hair was getting darker... (This is a good representation of our battle with the flesh nature when we fail to keep our foot on the neck of the old man. They can come back stronger and uglier the next time around. This is a dangerous direction to go because, in the Parable of the Sower, 3 out of 4 fell away and bore no fruit.) (Riaan: Mat 12:43-45 But the unclean spirit, when he is gone out of the man, passeth through waterless places, seeking rest, and findeth it not. 44 Then he saith, I will return into my house whence I came out; and when he is come, he findeth it empty, swept, and garnished. 45 Then goeth he, and taketh with himself seven other spirits more evil than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last state of that man becometh worse than the first. Even so shall it be also unto this evil generation) (Jesus was speaking to the people of God here.) She was now completely open in her dealings with the other “druggies” and told me that she had never wanted me to know, otherwise I would not be friends with her. (The enemy and our flesh nature are very sneaky this way. They want us to be in agreement with them so that they can keep their house or not have to go to their cross.) I tried to get her to come to me, but she couldn't, she was hooked. (Our flesh nature can never change or come into agreement with our spirit man. He must die. 1Co 9:25-27 And every man that striveth in the games exerciseth self-control in all things. Now they do it to receive a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible. 26 I therefore so run, as not uncertainly; so fight I, as not beating the air: 27 but I buffet my body, and bring it into bondage: lest by any means, after that I have preached to others, I myself should be rejected.) Then Brett came again and he was huge. Easily more than 2 meters tall, and very large. (As we continue to feed and mature the spirit man with the Word he will easily conquer the old man. 2Co 4:16 Wherefore we faint not; but though our outward man is decaying, yet our inward man is renewed day by day.) He said he'd have to finish her off, and he kept on calling his superior to check that it would be ok. (Riaan: John 14:31 but that the world may know that I love the Father, and as the Father gave me commandment, even so I do.). Linda knew she'd get killed again and she was trying to hide with another girl... They were doing drugs, now, right in front of me. (This represents out-of-control fleshly addictions.) I was astonished that they'd be so brazen and flaunt their bad habits in front of everyone. They were careless, loud, and outright rebellious. (Riaan: Luke 12:2 But there is nothing covered up, that shall not be revealed; and hid, that shall not be known. 3 Wherefore whatsoever ye have said in the darkness shall be heard in the light; and what ye have spoken in the ear in the inner chambers shall be proclaimed upon the housetops.) I then sat down with Brett for lunch, and these other really tall, big men arrived, and even though they looked different to Brett, they were on his team and they were committed to getting this drug problem eradicated. They were planning their strategy. It didn't seem too difficult, but they were going to keep on attacking no matter what. (We recently heard from the warrior angel, Shemuel, who stands next to the "Drain the Swamp" sign near our water purifier in my house. He said, “The enemy and their (human) minions have sustained large set backs and heavy casualties. They are now regrouping for another attack. Keep praying, doing warfare and praising; sending us out to do battle on your behalf.") I asked the Lord who Linda represents in this dream and I opened my Bible by faith at random on Isaiah 43:25, on “thy sins”. I thought Linda might represent the flesh in this dream, so this is a good confirmation. (In context 24-26) Thou hast bought me no sweet cane with money, neither hast thou filled me with the fat of thy sacrifices; but thou hast burdened me with thy sins, thou hast wearied me with thine iniquities. 25 I, even I, am he that blotteth out thy transgressions for mine own sake; and I will not remember thy sins. 26 Put me in remembrance; let us plead together: set thou forth thy cause , that thou mayest be justified. When we do not repent there is no sacrifice for our sins nor for willful disobedience. But in many cases it is the sin that dwells in us as Paul lamented about in Rom. 7. Claires finger was on “thy sins” in verse 25 which says, "I, am he that blotteth out thy transgressions for mine own sake; and I will not remember thy sins.” God knows our hearts when we sincerely desire to repent and He will give us the grace to do so for His own sake. Rom 7:13 - 8:4 Did then that which is good become death unto me? God forbid. But sin, that it might be shown to be sin, by working death to me through that which is good; —that through the commandment sin might become exceeding sinful. 14 For we know that the law is spiritual: but I am carnal, sold under sin. 15 For that which I do I know not: for not what I would, that do I practise; but what I hate, that I do. 16 But if what I would not, that I do, I consent unto the law that it is good. 17 So now it is no more I that do it, but sin which dwelleth in me. 18 For I know that in me, that is, in my flesh, dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me, but to do that which is good is not. 19 For the good which I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I practise. 20 But if what I would not, that I do, it is no more I that do it, but sin which dwelleth in me. 21 I find then the law, that, to me who would do good, evil is present. 22 For I delight in the law of God after the inward man: 23 but I see a different law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity under the law of sin which is in my members. 24 Wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me out of the body of this death? 25 I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then I of myself with the mind, indeed, serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin. Rom 8:1-4 There is therefore now no condemnation to them that are in Christ Jesus. 2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus made me free from the law of sin and of death. 3 For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God, sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh: 4 that the ordinance of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.) Tempted by the Spirit of Anger and Factious Nazi Sympathizers Claire Pienaar - 7/29/22 (David's notes in red) (This dream is a big warning not to get distracted. However, it seems the Lord has sent the distractions to some as "training" because it was "covered under the red pick up truck", as you will see. May Our Lord show favor to those who continue to seek Him diligently, and fervently.) I dreamed I was travelling on a highway in what I thought was my silver van. I had my old boss who's last name was Khosa next to me. (She was my boss when I worked for the Dept. Of Foreign Affairs in South Africa. Her last name means “angry men” and “herder of cattle”. I think she represents the curse, and maybe specifically an angry spirit that herds beastly people. I cast out anger many years ago and saw it leave. When I feel it trying to come on me, I remember what it looked like when it left. It manifested as a small black dog, insignificant.). In the dream, I realized I was driving a red pick-up truck, and in the back of the truck, I had all my toiletries and clothing (Toiletries represent being clean. Clothing represents being covered with the garments of righteousness, and the red truck represents being covered by the blood of Jesus). It seemed I had packed up my belongings from my home and was carrying them in the pick up truck. I turned left, at Khosa's direction, and then realized she had no idea where she was going. I now had to turn back onto the highway (of holiness), and it was busy, with two opposing lanes. As I waited for an opportunity to cross over into the correct lane, I felt myself growing smaller. My feet could hardly touch the pedals and I could barely see out over the steering wheel. (When we listen to the flesh's directions, our spirit man gets smaller and we are in danger of losing control of our vehicle.) I made it across and Khosa was not happy that I had made it back onto the highway. She said she never travels on highways and only used back roads. I said to her, “I've never even considered it”. She said, “You should”. I said, “Is it quicker?”. She replied, “No, It's always longer by at least 20 minutes”. I shook my head and she walked away. (Riaan: She seems to represent many different things like faction, division, anger, self works of the flesh. These will cause many to get off the highway of holiness and shrink back, or to lose maturity in Christ). Suddenly, I was in a house with Riaan, my husband (His name means little king, so he might represent the Man-child and I, the Bride because my name means “brilliant” as the clothing of the Bride in Rev. 19.). It was not a house that we've lived in, in the natural. It was almost empty. I figured we were moving out together to another place. (We must continue to come out from among them and be separate and made holy, moving out of apostasy and familiarity with the fallen lascivious Church). Riaan's mom and dad were there, as well as his sister, her husband, and their children. His brother's children were there too. I was very separate from them, and I kept on checking the bathroom cabinets to make sure these were empty so we could leave. (The Bride is ready to leave with her Groom and is still making sure she is clean and that she has everything required for purification.) His family brought up the name “Dr Mengele” in every sentence. They were were praising him and said, “His sacrifice was worth it”. They kept on saying he did such good work. They were enamoured with him. I balked at this. I had a vision of this man descending into deep water as part of a military execution. In this vision, he was drowned at sea. (Mengele was an ardent Nazi, and he joined the research staff of the Institute for Hereditary Biology and Racial Hygiene in 1934. During World War II he served as a medical officer with the Waffen-SS, which was the “armed” component of the Nazi paramilitary corps) in France and Russia. In 1943 he was appointed by Heinrich Himmler to be chief doctor at Birkenau, the supplementary extermination camp at Auschwitz, where he and his staff selected incoming Jews for labour or extermination and where he supervised medical experiments on inmates to discover means of increasing fertility, to increase the German “race”. His chief interest, however, was research on twins. Mengele's experiments often resulted in the death of the subject. He was called the “Angel of death”). (We have seen that Nazi's are like the faction in that they hate and kill God's people.) My in-laws kept on asking me what I thought, whether I agreed with them, and whether I was coming with them. They seemed to want to tempt me towards anger or discord. I could not respond with what they wanted to hear, so I asked Riaan when we were leaving. I told him the car was packed and ready. Then I woke up. (Dr. Mengele was the enemy of God's people. Like many today, who are being experimented on by the vaccines, who are dying and many more will die.) (Riaan: Trusting in the arm of the flesh and vaccinations or any other means of self deliverance is supporting the "angel of death”). (Claire, as a type of the Bride, does not trust in the arm of the flesh which has killed so many Christians. Jer 17:5-8 Thus saith Jehovah: Cursed is the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from Jehovah. 6 For he shall be like the heath in the desert, and shall not see when good cometh, but shall inhabit the parched places in the wilderness, a salt land and not inhabited. 7 Blessed is the man that trusteth in Jehovah, and whose trust Jehovah is. 8 For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, that spreadeth out its roots by the river, and shall not fear when heat cometh, but its leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit.) Buffet the Old Man and Wait on the Lord Claire Pienaar - 7/31/22 (David's notes in red) I dreamed I was at a large home; it was white and it was a place where people gathered and were currently gathering. (Riaan: Our bodies are the house of God. A large house represents a corporate body.) This really old man came to the door and tried to come in, and I knew he had an assignment on my life. He was a very smooth talker and seemed very friendly to everyone else, but I knew I could not go anywhere with him and I told him to leave. I was so rude to him, it surprised me in my dream. (Riaan: No more mister nice guy to this old man!! Get rid of him with force!) (The old man is an enemy of God which makes him our enemy. Rom 8:5-8 For they that are after the flesh mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit. 6 For the mind of the flesh is death; but the mind of the Spirit is life and peace: 7 because the mind of the flesh is enmity against God; for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can it be: 8 and they that are in the flesh cannot please God.) Then he said, “I've got your number, little dove, you'll always be mine”. And I took him outside and I beat him up. I've never been in a physical fight, so I don't know what that looks or feels like. But in the dream, I went ballistic. I kicked the wind out of him, head butted him, got him to the ground and laid into him. His face seemed to contort from disbelief to sheer feebleness as I did this. I could feel the frame of his skeleton give way and he was just a pile of mush when I was done. He was all squishy. I gave him one more blow to the head and then got up and went back inside. (Riaan: Wow! Good job Claire! It's a spiritual fight against the old man, but it's still a brutal, all or nothing fight! Put down that old flesh!) (1Co 9:27 but I buffet my body, and bring it into bondage: lest by any means, after that I have preached to others, I myself should be rejected.) Then the scene changed, and I was at King's Cross in London, England. It is a large train station. I was not wanting to get onto any train but was waiting for a white train to pull in. (Riaan: King's Cross is a play on words, as the Bride waits at the cross of King Jesus, which represents death to self and is where the Holy Spirit train picks us up). In the meantime, there were black men who were blowing up train tracks. (Men walking in darkness destroying the paths.) They were trying to get people killed and one of them seemed to follow me around. (Riaan: Factious and divisive apostates try to derail the body of believers who continue on the original path of the original gospel). (Isa 3:12 As for my people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O my people, they that lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths.) I started walking along the tracks and there were different levels of scaffolding and tracks. I was on a very high level and if I fell, I would die. This black man was intent on me dying. (Riaan: It's walking in the heavenlies, and we can't fall back or we risk becoming twice dead and plucked up by the roots and impossible to be renewed unto salvation. Keep walking by faith and overcome, endure). (Heb 6:4-8 For as touching those who were once enlightened and tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Spirit, 5 and tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the age to come, 6 and then fell away, it is impossible to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame. 7 For the land which hath drunk the rain that cometh oft upon it, and bringeth forth herbs meet for them for whose sake it is also tilled, receiveth blessing from God: 8 but if it beareth thorns and thistles, it is rejected and nigh unto a curse; whose end is to be burned.) I pretended to jump off the high level, and then I went back to my spot, but he really jumped, and when he miraculously landed at the bottom. (The flesh cannot fall away and die. It is already dead and fallen away.) He seemed to be distracted and left me alone. I kept on having visions of these black men all over the tracks like spider men. (Riaan: The attacks from the enemy are in full scale now. Our fight is against the principalities, powers and rulers of darkness.). At this point in the dream I knew a big inferno was coming. I could see and feel the heat and an orange glow coming closer. But I just sat and waited. These black men and other people were running left and right, but they'd never escape what was coming. (Riaan: Representing the fiery trial of God to burn up the flesh). Then I woke up. I received this word by faith at random: 2 Samuel 3:29: let it fall upon the head of Joab, and upon all his father's house; and let there not fail from the house of Joab one that hath an issue, or that is a leper, or that leaneth on a staff, or that falleth by the sword, or that lacketh bread. (Exo 20:5 ... I Jehovah thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children, upon the third and upon the fourth generation of them that hate me.) (Riaan: Joab represents those who fall back, they were once the king's best man but then did murderous works and fell away and all their previous mighty works are forgotten. Matthew 7:22-23 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy by thy name, and by thy name cast out demons, and by thy name do many mighty works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.) I asked the Lord for another verse and my finger landed on witchcraft, from Nahum 3:4: because of the multitude of the whoredoms of the well-favored harlot, the mistress of witchcrafts, that selleth nations through her whoredoms, and families through her witchcrafts). Burning the Old Man's House Marie Kelton - February 2022 (David's notes in red) The Lord gave me an open vision. I saw the sky was a light greenish color and my spiritual man, who was wearing all white, walked out of a black house. My spiritual man turned and looked back at the house. (We must not look back at our old nature and what is the past because it will destroy us as it did Lot's wife. We must keep our eyes focused on Jesus in the mirror, our hope of glory. Php 3:13-14 Brethren, I count not myself yet to have laid hold: but one thing I do, forgetting the things which are behind, and stretching forward to the things which are before. 14 I press on toward the goal unto the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. 2 Co. 3:18 But we all, with unveiled face beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are transformed into the same image from glory to glory, even as from the Lord the Spirit.) Then, I saw my flesh man who was black and wearing all black, in the house screaming at my spiritual man through a closed window of the house. (Yes. We must close all windows and doors which represent opportunities for the old man to speak or gain access to our spiritual man. I believe the windows represent our eye gates and what we see and the doors are like the mouth of the cave that Joshua put the 5 kings into and rolled a great stone over the entrance, representing preventing the old man to speak and the 5 senses to rule over or bring a curse upon us.) Then my spiritual man lit a match and threw it on the house and set it on fire. (The fiery trial destroys the old man as we obey the Word. Heb 4:12 For the word of God is living, and active, and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing even to the dividing of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and quick to discern the thoughts and intents of the heart.) The Lord Claims His Bride Marie Kelton 3-23-22 (David's notes in red) While reading the Bible, the Lord gave me an open vision of Him sitting beside me. (This is the key to close relationship with Jesus, our heavenly Husband, who is the Word made flesh. We must put His Word down into our hearts. Amo 3:3 Shall two walk together, except they have agreed?) He put his hand on my heart and light came forth from His hand into my heart and it lit up my heart. Then I saw the light spread from my heart to the rest of my body. (Corporately, the Bride is the heart of Christ's Body because she is the closest in nature to His own heart. Through the hand or works of Jesus, the Bride will be used in a great way to bring the true light of Christ to the rest of the Body, just as the heart in the natural pumps the life giving blood to the rest of the Body. John 15:1-8 I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman. 2 Every branch in me that beareth not fruit, he taketh it away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he cleanseth it, that it may bear more fruit. 3 Already ye are clean because of the word which I have spoken unto you. 4 Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; so neither can ye, except ye abide in me. 5 I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same beareth much fruit: for apart from me ye can do nothing. 6 If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and they gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned. (This is like the black man in the house above that was burned.) 7 If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ask whatsoever ye will, and it shall be done unto you. 8 Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; and so shall ye be my disciples.) 7/25/22 During the Monday meeting, I had an open vision. The Lord came and sat down next to me. (Just as Jesus came in a body of the son of David as the Man-child, Jesus is coming in the David Man-child reformer body of ministers to take His rightful place next to His Bride body.) I notice He had a wedding ring on His left hand. Then I looked and saw that I had a ring on my left hand also. (The ring is a sign of eternity, and in this case, eternal intimacy with the Lord. It is also a ring of authority; being a joint heir with Christ.) I thought of this verse in Isa 54:5 For thy Maker is thy husband; Jehovah of hosts is his name: and the Holy One of Israel is thy Redeemer; the God of the whole earth shall he be called. Seeking to Purchase Wisdom's House Eve Brast - 7/28/22 (David's note in red) (I believe Shalonda represents the Bride in this dream just as in the dream above titled, “The Lord Claims His Bride”.) I dreamed I was in the kitchen of a house, that all the local UBM brethren were touring. It was built and owned by a silver haired old woman. (I knew in the dream that she was Wisdom personified.) She wanted to sell the house and was encouraging us all to pitch in together to buy it. But, not only were we all individually too poor to buy it, but even if we had corporately put all our money together, it still would not have been enough. We were individually and corporately too poor to purchase the house of Wisdom. (In Pro 8:19, Wisdom is valued far above silver and gold. So it seems we are poor in wisdom to purchase Wisdom's house.)(Thank God that Jesus, who is Wisdom and the Word, paid the price through His blood shed for us to have the restored house. 1Co 1:24... Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God.) There was a large man standing in the middle of the living room. He had a deep voice like James Earl Jones and a long beard and was dressed in a judges robes. He was listening very carefully to what we were saying in our conversations and interactions. (This represents the Father who listens carefully to our words, considers the thoughts and intents of our hearts, monitors our actions with regard to one another and He acts on our confessions of faith to bring about His promises in our individual lives and for the corporate Body.) I walked into the living room and saw Shalonda standing with the Father to her right. Her face was turned downward towards Him as if she was ashamed for Him to see it and her eyes were cast down towards the carpet. I walked up to her and asked her how she was doing. She tried to talk with me while still looking downwards. But as she slowly lifted her face up towards me, I saw that the enemy had beaten up the whole right side of her face. Her whole eye and cheek area was all blackish blue and bruised. I asked, “What happened to you?!” She said, “It's okay. Father is helping me. I've been receiving a lot of “hand-ups.” As she lifted her right hand, palm up, in a gesture. I could tell the Father was pleased with the confession but He understood that it was half-hearted and this was why the enemy was beating her up.” At the same time I felt bad that this had happened to her and wondered if there was something I could have done to help prevent this or to help her fight. (Justification by faith is the main thing. Also Jesus made reconciliation for us and He made us ministers of reconciliation by uniting others to Him by encouraging their faith. With faith we are able to beat up the old man instead of being beaten up by him.) Then my attention was drawn to all of the moldings and cabinetry in the house and the kitchen. They were all sanded down and stripped, waiting to be restored and refinished. I had an open vision of how they used to look with intricate carvings and wood workings. I thought what a shame! I had no Idea that this house used to be so splendid and beautiful. It was still a very beautiful and desired house but nothing like it's original state. Then Michael Hare came up to me and said, “Have you ever seen this house in its former glory?” And I said, “No. Seems a shame.” (Meaning it was a shame that we couldn't restore it because we were too poor.) Then I woke up. (Ezra 3:11-13 ...And all the people shouted with a great shout, when they praised Jehovah, because the foundation of the house of Jehovah was laid. 12 But many of the priests and Levites and heads of fathers houses , the old men that had seen the first house, when the foundation of this house was laid before their eyes, wept with a loud voice; and many shouted aloud for joy: 14 so that the people could not discern the noise of the shout of joy from the noise of the weeping of the people…) (Jesus is the true house of God. Our job is to behold Him in the mirror by faith until we are restored as His body 2 Co. 3:18.) This dream made me think of Proverbs 8 & 9: Pro 8:1-23 & 30-36 Doth not wisdom cry, And understanding put forth her voice? 2 On the top of high places by the way, Where the paths meet, she standeth; 3 Beside the gates, at the entry of the city, At the coming in at the doors, she crieth aloud: 4 Unto you, O men, I call; And my voice is to the sons of men. 5 O ye simple, understand prudence; And, ye fools, be of an understanding heart. 6 Hear, for I will speak excellent things; And the opening of my lips shall be right things. 7 For my mouth shall utter truth; And wickedness is an abomination to my lips. 8 All the words of my mouth are in righteousness; There is nothing crooked or perverse in them. 9 They are all plain to him that understandeth, And right to them that find knowledge. 10 Receive my instruction, and not silver; And knowledge rather than choice gold. 11 For wisdom is better than rubies; And all the things that may be desired are not to be compared unto it. 12 I wisdom have made prudence my dwelling, And find out knowledge and discretion. 13 The fear of Jehovah is to hate evil: Pride, and arrogancy, (including the pride of life) and the evil way, And the perverse mouth, do I hate. 14 Counsel is mine, and sound knowledge: I am understanding; I have might. 15 By me kings reign, And princes decree justice. 16 By me princes rule, And nobles, even all the judges of the earth. 17 I love them that love me; And those that seek me diligently shall find me. 18 Riches and honor are with me; Yea , durable wealth and righteousness. 19 My fruit is better than gold, yea, than fine gold; And my revenue than choice silver. 20 I walk in the way of righteousness, In the midst of the paths of justice; 21 That I may cause those that love me to inherit substance, And that I may fill their treasuries. 22 Jehovah possessed me (Jesus) in the beginning of his way, Before his works of old. 23 I was set up from everlasting, from the beginning, Before the earth was... 30 Then I was by him, as a master workman; And I was daily his delight, Rejoicing always before him, 31 Rejoicing in his habitable earth; And my delight was with the sons of men. 32 Now therefore, my sons, hearken unto me; For blessed are they that keep my ways. 33 Hear instruction, and be wise, And refuse it not. 34 Blessed is the man that heareth me, Watching daily at my gates, Waiting at the posts of my doors. 35 For whoso findeth me findeth life, And shall obtain favor of Jehovah. 36 But he that sinneth against me wrongeth his own soul: All they that hate me love death. Pro 9:1,3-12 Wisdom hath builded her house; She hath hewn out her seven pillars: ... 3 She hath sent forth her maidens; She crieth upon the highest places of the city: 4 Whoso is simple, let him turn in hither: As for him that is void of understanding, she saith to him, 5 Come, eat ye of my bread, And drink of the wine which I have mingled. (This is the Lord's supper that we must eat and drink.) 6 Leave off, ye simple ones, and live; And walk in the way of understanding. 7 He that correcteth a scoffer getteth to himself reviling; And he that reproveth a wicked man getteth himself a blot. 8 Reprove not a scoffer, lest he hate thee: Reprove a wise man, and he will love thee. 9 Give instruction to a wise man, and he will be yet wiser: Teach a righteous man, and he will increase in learning. 10 The fear of Jehovah is the beginning of wisdom; And the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding. 11 For by me thy days shall be multiplied, And the years of thy life shall be increased. 12 If thou art wise, thou art wise for thyself; And if thou scoffest, thou alone shalt bear it. Though I Walk Through the Valley Marie Kelton - 6/17/22 (David's notes in red) During the Friday meeting, I had an open vision of me walking down a dark road with little light. In the vision I was singing "God of Wonders" which was the song we were singing at that time. As I was seeing the vision the verse popped into my head "though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death I will fear no evil..." I saw as I was walking that I had on a pair of white headphones. (The white headphones represent listening to the promises in the Word of God as He leads us through the valley of the shadow of “death to self.”) After the vision I opened my song book randomly to page 56 which is the song, "God is Good all the Time.” My eyes fell on the first verse of the song which said, “If you're walking through the valley and there are shadows all around. Do not fear, he will guide you. He will keep you safe and sound.” Psa 23:4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; for thou art with me; Thy rod and thy staff, they comfort me. Partaking in Christ's Sufferings Marie Kelton - 8/1/22 (David's notes in red) During the Monday meeting the Lord gave me an open vision of Him holding a goblet. The Lord then walked into the Holy of Holies were I was sitting. I was wearing all white with a white head covering. The Lord sat down beside me. (Representing our spiritual man which is sanctified and purified by the blood of Christ and is the only one who can sit with the Lord in the Holy of Holies in our individual temples.) I knew He had drank from the cup. Then He handed me the cup and I drank from it. Then the Lord said, “Partake of My sufferings.” Mat 20:22-23 But Jesus answered and said, Ye know not what ye ask. Are ye able to drink the cup that I am about to drink? They say unto him, We are able. He saith unto them, My cup indeed ye shall drink: (Referring to the cup of suffering of crucifixion and "death to self”. This is martyrdom for Christ's name's sake.) but to sit on my right hand, and on my left hand, is not mine to give; but it is for them for whom it hath been prepared of my Father. 1Pet 4:13 but insomuch as ye are partakers of Christ 's sufferings, rejoice; that at the revelation of his glory also ye may rejoice with exceeding joy. Then a little while later, I had another open vision of me and the Lord in the Holy of Holies eating. (Rev 3:20 Behold, I stand at the door and knock: if any man hear my voice and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.) The Lord had a plate full of food and I did too. I saw the Lord eating with a fork and I asked Him what was on the plate? He said, "vegetables and fruit.” When I looked at my plate, I saw that I had the same meal. (Fruits and vegetables represent healthy food for the spirit man which is the body and blood of Jesus. Lev 17:11 For the life of the flesh is in the blood; and I have given it to you upon the altar to make atonement for your souls: for it is the blood that maketh atonement by reason of the life. The bread/flesh/meat represents the body of Christ which has life because of the wine/blood/nature of Christ. John 6:53-58 Jesus therefore said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man and drink his blood, ye have not life in yourselves. 54 He that eateth my flesh and drinketh my blood hath eternal life: and I will raise him up at the last day. 55 For my flesh is meat indeed, and my blood is drink indeed. 56 He that eateth my flesh and drinketh my blood abideth in me, and I in him. 57 As the living Father sent me, and I live because of the Father; so he that eateth me, he also shall live because of me. 58 This is the bread which came down out of heaven: not as the fathers ate, and died; he that eateth this bread shall live for ever.) Finish Your Own Race First! Tabitha Pienaar - 6/30/22 (David's notes in red) (Claire said, “My young daughter, Tabitha, had this dream last week. She said, 'It's the first time I've ever come first in anything!' Thank you Lord, for keeping Tabitha's eye on the prize and from distractions.”) I dreamed that I was in a race with many other children and I was in a mixed group of boys and girls together, but mostly girls. (1 Co. 9:24-27 Know ye not that they that run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? (Jesus in us receives the prize.) Even so run; that ye may attain. 25 And every man that striveth in the games exerciseth self-control in all things. Now they do it to receive a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible. 26 I therefore so run, as not uncertainly; so fight I, as not beating the air: 27 but I buffet my body, and bring it into bondage: lest by any means, after that I have preached to others, I myself should be rejected.) (Riaan: Tabitha means “gazelle” or “gracious” ). (Tabitha is representing the Bride who finishes her race of sanctification first, so that, as we will see, she can help her “little sister” as in Song. 8:8-9, learn to run the race too. Psa. 18:31-42 or who is God, save Jehovah? And who is a rock, besides our God, 32 The God that girdeth me with strength, And maketh my way perfect? 33 He maketh my feet like hinds feet : And setteth me upon my high places. 34 He teacheth my hands to war; So that mine arms do bend a bow of brass. 35 Thou hast also given me the shield of thy salvation; And thy right hand hath holden me up, And thy gentleness hath made me great. 36 Thou hast enlarged my steps under me, And my feet have not slipped. 37 I will pursue mine enemies, and overtake them; Neither will I turn again till they are consumed. 38 I will smite them through, so that they shall not be able to rise: They shall fall under my feet. 39 For thou hast girded me with strength unto the battle: Thou hast subdued under me those that rose up against me. 40 Thou hast also made mine enemies turn their backs unto me, That I might cut off them that hate me. 41 They cried, but there was none to save; Even unto Jehovah, but he answered them not. 42 Then did I beat them small as the dust before the wind; I did cast them out as the mire of the streets. 43 Thou hast delivered me from the strivings of the people; Thou hast made me the head of the nations: A people whom I have not known shall serve me.) Back to Tabitha: It was a maze race, and the racetrack was very densely covered with ferns and other leaves. The maze was strange because it wasn't grass or hedges, but it was a track where you could easily get lost. In the middle of the race there was a crocodile pond and a child got stuck in there. I went past the child and saw that she was going to be eaten by a crocodile. I stopped by and helped her, and many children raced past me when I did that. (It's not the fastest runners who win this race but the faithful who obey God's command to Love one another.) As soon as she was freed, we started running together. In the middle of the dream there was an overhanging area of vines, that was so thick you couldn't see which way to get through. I took a vine and swung and tried to catch a fern so I could get in front of the other children. (Being in heavenly places up above the earth with Jesus, who is the Vine, is how we win the race. John 15:5 I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same beareth much fruit: for apart from me ye can do nothing.) I failed the first few times, but as soon as I got ahold of the fern I scrambled along until I was in front of the other children. Then it was the end of the race, and I sprinted to the finish line. I knew I had won because no other children were there yet. Soon a boy came in 2nd place, and then another girl came in 3rd. The girl who came in 3rd tried to figure out who had won between me and the 2nd placed boy. Soon another group of children came, and the rest were lost in the maze. f The man who was hosting the maze race decided it was time to give out the trophies. (Representing Jesus who was with God the Father when He created this earthly race of trials for us to overcome and win through Jesus' blood.) Then I said to him, “There are so many children who are lost in the race. Why give out the trophies now?”. He said, “We can't wait for them. I told my boss we'd give the trophies out at a certain time. Now is the time and I can't deny my Word”. So I said, “Fine”. He took up a paper and gave a long speech about how the race was conducted and said, "Thank you to all the people who made the race a success." Then He called “Tabitha” and I stood up on the platform as he gave me my first-place trophy. For some reason, I shouted “Stevenson!”. (Riaan: Stevenson means “garland” or “crown”). (James 1:12 Blessed is the man that endureth temptation; for when he hath been approved, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord promised to them that love him.) I was so happy, and mommy and daddy were so happy too and we couldn't stop playing praise music. When we were done, I decided that I was going to look for the children that were lost in the maze. (We must get the beam out of our own eye and then we will see clearly to help our brethren. The Bride will overcome to be chosen as the Bride before the tribulation so that they can in the tribulation wilderness can guide others to maturity.) The scene changed and I was scrambling through a maze that was more dense than the one I had been running in the initial race. I heard some shouting in the distance. I started running toward the noise and saw the rest of the children in the pond that the crocodiles lived in. (Having been through this in her own race, the Bride will be able to help the little sisters avoid or escape the perils along the way.). One child was screaming because a crocodile was quickly swimming to her. (These crocodiles represent our beastly enemies and the factious that try to kill the children with their slanderous mouths. The people who become weary in running the race and don't endure in the trials are in danger of not finishing the race at all. Rom 16:17-18 Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them that are causing the divisions and occasions of stumbling, contrary to the doctrine which ye learned: and turn away from them. 18 For they that are such serve not our Lord Christ, but their own belly; and by their smooth and fair speech they beguile the hearts of the innocent.) I crossed the rock jetty to the area where the child was screaming. I picked her up in my arms and decided the rocks were going to be too slippery for both her and I to cross, so I swam to the other side and gently placed her on the ground. I called to the rest of the children to, one-by-one, go across the rocks that formed the jetty to come back to the bank on the other side. (The Bride body will help others who are the elect of God escape the enemy and his minions who are trying to devour them with their fiery darts from their mouths. The crocodiles are like the dragon in Rev. 12 who sought to devour the woman Church in the wilderness.) Once the children had done that, we continued the trek back. This time we got very lost. I didn't know why we got lost but there had been signs on the trees before, that pointed the way, but the maze was denser now, so we couldn't see those signs anymore. We went to an area where we had to sign some papers to see where we were. (This represents coming back to our covenant written in the Word and recommitting to it, to find our way back to the Father.) After the race, the boss (Representing the Father) would come and get the papers to see all the children who had participated in the race. (This represents God's Book of Life that people are written into or blotted out of depending whether they endured until the end to see their salvation.) Soon we found our way out of the maze, and everyone was safe again. Then I woke up. Tabitha asked the Lord to give her a word that would help her understand the dream, and she received, Nehemiah 6:15 So the wall was finished in the twenty and fifth day of the month Elul, in fifty and two days. (Riaan: Elul is the 6th month and is usually Aug/Sept). (The wall represents sanctification which is what we are in the race for. What if the end of the race and the finishing of the wall which, represents sanctification, are synonymous and this ends in this time frame of August/September when the Man-child comes for the Bride and the tribulation begins, ending at the same timeframe? That would be nice.) Be My Steadfast Lighthouse Eve Brast - October 2017 (Link) …As I was driving to work one morning, I knew that Father was really driving the message of steadfastness home to me and pulling it together from many different angles. So I asked Him to expand on this; to solidify it in my mind. At that moment, He opened up a vision to me and in a split second I saw it all and understood it more deeply. In the vision, I saw a lighthouse upon a large rock near the ocean shore. It was a pitch black, stormy night and the rain was beating against it almost sideways. Its light burned bright into the darkness out toward the storm tossed sea. It stood strong and faithful against the elements; always shining its guiding light out to sea. I was as tall as the lighthouse while I was walking toward it and then I was merged into it and I became the lighthouse. (David: I believe that Eve represents the work of the Bride to be a lighthouse to the people to bring them to safety. She is also a fit person to have this dream personally for she has worked very hard as long as I have known her to bring the light.) As its light beamed forth from my eyes out upon the wind tossed waves, I saw many wooden ships in distress, being tossed about on the waves. As I focused on these ships, the faces of desperate people appeared where the bows had been. They were intensely focused on my light to avoid being dashed upon the rocky shore. Father spoke to me and said, ”Consider a lighthouse and its steadfastness in the storm. It is reliable, immovable, and ever guiding distressed vessels away from danger… Will you be My lighthouse?” We may never know on this side of eternity how many distressed vessels were saved because of our faithfulness and steadfast reliability to bring the light to them. In the end, I've had to repent of getting caught up in my own little universe of problems. Today Father brought me back to a word He had given me during the 40 day fast... Here it is below: Father spoke to me and said, ”Don't faint in the day of adversity. Be strong. Take courage, for I have heard the cries and the prayers of my people and I will bring great deliverance. You will see the destruction of the enemy with your own eyes. With your own eyes will you see the mighty works of My hands. You feel I am far away, but I am very near to you. You wonder if I hear, but I tell you, I have heard and will answer you in ways that you could not conceive of. Don't faint ! Believe and keep believing, for blessed are they who have not seen me and yet believe! Give Me all the praise and glory for the battle is already won! And I have given you the victory for I reign victorious forever and ever. I will cause you to contend with horses.“ This word reminded me of two texts: Jer. 12:5, If thou hast run with the footmen, and they have wearied thee, then how canst thou contend with horses? and though in a land of peace thou art secure, yet how wilt thou do in the pride of the Jordan? And Rev.2:3, and thou hast patience and didst bear for my name's sake, and hast not grown weary.

The Slovakian Working Group was likely the most heroic attempt at Jewish rescue during the Holocaust. Dealing directly with the SS and their Slovak collaborators, members of the Working Group bribed the perpetrators, smuggled goods and Jews across borders and disseminated information regarding the development of the Final Solution to Switzerland and Hungary. Representing the full gamut of Slovakian Jewry, the Working Group included Gisi Fleischmann of the Zionist movement who was also a representative of the Joint Distribution Committee, Rav Michoel Ber Weissmandel who represented the Orthodox community, the Zionist leader Dr. Oskar Neumann, the Neolog rabbi Armin Freider, and the assimilationists Dr. Tibor Kovac and Andrej Steiner. Together they formulated ever daring plans to save Jews. Though most of their plans didn't come to fruition, their heroism stands as the most daring attempt to save Jewish lives during the Holocaust.

There are many made-up holidays that somehow have found their way into being mentioned on this particular channel of programming as part the introduction. For some reason, today is Clean Your Floors Day, though it’s unclear who makes the money off of those greetings cards. But how clean are your floors? Are you a rebel without a broom, or are you a vacuum warrior? It’s a very good thing that none of the rest of this installment of Charlottesville Community Engagement has anything to do with this particular topic. But I will have you know, I mopped mine yesterday in anticipation of this very important day. On today’s show:So far there are no debates scheduled in the contested Fifth Congressional District race but Democrat Josh Throneburg wants to change thatArea home sales volumes have decreased, though the cost to buy a place to live continues to increaseGreene County hires a water and sewer director to prepare to expand supplySeveral area organizations receive funding from Virginia Humanities, including a project to tell stories of PVCC students who have been or are in prisonAlbemarle County continues to review its Comprehensive Plan and the seven-member Planning Commission got their chance to review growth management options late last month First shout-out is for LEAP’s new Thermalize Virginia program In today’s first Patreon-fueled shout-out: Have you been thinking of converting your fossil-fuel appliances and furnaces into something that will help the community reduce its greenhouse gas emissions? Your local energy nonprofit, LEAP, has launched a new program to guide you through the steps toward electrifying your home. Thermalize Virginia will help you understand electrification and connect you with vetted contractors to get the work done and help you find any rebates or discounts. Visit thermalizeva.org to learn more and to sign up! Challenger Throneburg challenges Good to an in-person debateThe Democratic candidate in the Fifth District Congressional race has asked his opponent to agree to meet in person for a debate or other kind of candidate forum before the November 8 election. Josh Throneburg of Charlottesville became the candidate earlier this year before the primary when he was the only one to qualify for the ballot. “There’s one question I get asked more than any other and that is, when will the two of you debate?” Throneburg asked in a campaign video sent out this morning. Throneburg addressed his comments directly to Good and said there were at least three organizations that would hold a campaign event, and that he’s accepted all of them.“But you have either rejected or ignored those invitations and so I want to make things crystal clear. I, Josh Throneburg, challenge you, Representative Bob Good to an in-person debate sometime between now and November 8.”Good is seeking his second term in the U.S. House of Representatives having defeated Cameron Webb in the 2020 election. Candidate Good did participate in a September 9, 2020 virtual campaign forum put on by the Senior Statesmen of Virginia. You can take a listen to that whole event at the Charlottesville Podcasting Network. A request for comment or a response is out to the Bob Good for Congress campaign. CAAR: Charlottesville real estate market continues to cool as prices continue to increaseThe number of sales in the Charlottesville housing market continues to drop as the median sales price continues to climb. That’s according to the latest report from the Charlottesville Area Association of Realtors. (view the report) “There were 1,380 homes sold in the CAAR area in the second quarter,” reads one of the bullet points in the CAAR Home Sales Report for the second quarter. “This is an eleven percent drop from the second quarter a year ago, which is 165 fewer sales.” CAAR’s jurisdictional area is the same as the Thomas Jefferson Planning District with the city of Charlottesville as well as the counties of Albemarle, Fluvanna, Greene, Louisa, and Nelson. The median sales price increased to $417,850, an eleven percent increase over the second quarter of 2021. Additionally, supply has increased with 741 active listings in the area, a 28 percent increase over the same period in 2021. To put the increase in perspective, consider that the median sales price for the second quarter of 2018 was $301,000. The report also covers recent economic trends such as steady job growth and low unemployment. “Several job sectors have fully recovered and have actually expanded since the start of the pandemic, including the Professional and Technical Services sector, and the Federal Government sector. The homeownership rate within these two job sectors tends to be relatively high, so growth in these sectors provides fuel for the housing market in Virginia.”However, the leisure and hospitality sector continues to show signs of recovery. Mortgage rates are higher than last year, but have shown a slight decline from the end of June when the average rate on a 30-year fixed was 5.7 percent. However, the report acknowledges the cooling effect of rates that have increased two percentage points so far this year. Sales volumes were down in all localities except Greene County where there was a 33 percent increase in sales. There were 122 homes sold in that jurisdiction between April and June of this year compared to 92 in the same period the year before. The median sales price increased in all of the jurisdictions, but Nelson County saw the biggest jump in values from $285,000 in second quarter of 2021 to $425,000 in the second quarter of 2022.

Say something in the comments. New water and sewer director in GreeneGreene County is preparing for anticipated population growth by expanding its urban water supply. Now the locality has hired its first ever water and sewer director. “Mr. Greg Lunsford… will oversee the development of a team to operate Greene County Water and Sewer Department as Greene transitions out of the Rapidan Service Authority,” reads an announcement posted to the county’s Facebook page. Greene County recently left the RSA in order to build a reservoir that’s already received permission from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. The idea is to impound White Run to create storage. (learn more on the Greene website)Lunsford recently served as the town manager of Elkton in Rockingham County where the release states he helped advance a water system upgrade. In Greene, he will lead the work to create a water and sewer ordinance to govern the new supply. Virginia Humanities awards grants to area nonprofitsThe state agency that serves as the official humanities council for Virginia has made its latest round of grants to nonprofit organizations that seek to tell new stories about the people who have lived in the Commonwealth. “We want Virginians to connect with their history and culture and, in doing that, we hope we’ll all get to know each other a little better,” reads the About section of the website for Virginia Humanities. In all, Virginia Humanities awarded $153,200 to eighteen organizations including several in this general area. The Catticus Corporation of Berkeley, California will get $10,000 for a project to build a website intended to tell the story of Barbara Johns and the 1951 student walk out in Prince Edward County to a larger audience across Virginia and the nation. James Madison University will get $5,400 toward a project called A Miserable Revenge: Recovering 19th-Century Black Literature from the Shenandoah Valley. This will transcribe a handwritten novel by George Newman around 1880. Newman was an African American educator from the Winchester area. The Louisa County Historical Society will get $7,000 for a project called Representing our Residents: African American History at the Louisa County Historical Society. This will be a series of oral history interviews and public outreach activities.The National D-Day Memorial in Bedford will get $8,000 for a project called Someone Talked! A Podcast of the National D-Day Memorial. This will include conversations between the prolific WWII historian John McManus and other scholars and is intended and designed to reach and engage new audiences now that the generation that lived through WWII has passed.

Second shout-out goes to Camp AlbemarleToday’s second subscriber-supported public service announcement goes out to Camp Albemarle, which has for sixty years been a “wholesome rural, rustic and restful site for youth activities, church groups, civic events and occasional private programs.”Located on 14 acres on the banks of the Moorman’s River near Free Union, Camp Albemarle continues as a legacy of being a Civilian Conservation Corps project that sought to promote the importance of rural activities. Camp Albemarle seeks support for a plan to winterize the Hamner Lodge, a structure built in 1941 by the CCC and used by every 4th and 5th grade student in Charlottesville and Albemarle for the study of ecology for over 20 years. If this campaign is successful, Camp Albemarle could operate year-round. Consider your support by visiting campalbemarleva.org/donate. Albemarle Planning Commission reviews seven options for growth management Is this the summer of 2022, or is it the Summer of AC44? AC44 is the name Albemarle County has given for the review of its Comprehensive Plan. That’s a document Virginia requires all localities to adopt and review every five years. Albemarle last updated its plan in 2015 and work got underway earlier this year. “We’re currently in phase one, plan for growth, where we are reviewing and evaluating the current growth management policy, using lenses of equity, climate action, and capacity projects,” said Tori Kannellopollous, a senior planner with Albemarle County.At the end of this phase, staff and hired consultants will have developed a draft vision for “growth and resilience” on which new policy objectives will be written. The work so far has led to the development of seven growth management policies for the public to review. “We are planning having in-person and virtual roundtables and online opportunities in step three,” Kannellopollous saidThe Commission will then review the work in September followed by a review by the Board of Supervisors. Discussions about what changes might come in the rural area will come during phase two of the Comprehensive Plan Review. Several Commissioners wanted to know if survey responses have done enough to capture a diversity of opinion. “I did a deep dive on the last one that came out and when I look at the demographics, the demographics really trend white, upper class, middle-upper class, and extremely well-educated,” said Commission Julian Bivins. “What I’m nervous about is that those responses become the drivers for lots of decisions.” Charles Rapp, the deputy director of the Community Development Department, said he expected participation to increase when the plan review gets into specifics.“People are excited to get into the specific topics [and] into the details of this plan,” Rapp said. “At this point we’re still at such a high level trying to figure out which of those avenues we’re going to go down and which ideas we want to explore and what are those topics that we want to dive into.” The Commission also got an update on the buildout analysis of the county’s existing capacity for new homes and businesses. The firm Kimley Horn has been hired to conduct that work. Kannellopollous had several preliminary observations.“In mixed-use developments, the residential component tends to fill out first and the non-residential component may not build out until years later,” Kannellopollous said. “When factoring in site readiness and site-selection criteria, there appears to be sufficient capacity for commercial and retail uses but much less currently available for office and industrial uses.” Another finding is that new developments are not being approved at the maximum possible, and that by-right developments also do not use all of the potential building space recommended in the existing Comprehensive Plan.Seven growth management optionsThe firm EPR has been hired to help develop the growth management options. “These were developed by the consultants and the staff after the first round of public input,” said Vlad Gavrilovic with EPR. “They’re not intended as picking one as the winner or the loser. They’re intended to initiate discussion.” Let’s go through them. Here’s option one:“Applying more density and more in-fill development within the existing development areas and retaining and enhancing green infrastructure,” Gavrilovic said. “Next option was looking in the development areas to adjust the densities and reduce the maximum densities to more closely align with what people have actually been building as.” The third option would be to develop criteria for which the growth area might be adjusted. “Looking at new criteria to identify when, where, and how growth areas should be expanded,” Gavrilovic said. “The next option was opportunities for non-residential development around the interchanges on I-64 to support job growth and economic development.” Option five would explore the possibility of rural villages. “Rural villages where you would promote small scale commercial and service uses to nearby rural area residents,” Gavrilovic said. “Number six was looking at current service provisions and seeing if adjustments are needed to ensure equitable distribution of services, particularly health and safety services.” The final option is to “explore opportunities to promote forest retention and regenerative land uses in the Rural area that support climate action goals.” So those are the seven scenarios. A second round of community engagement went out with these results. “We heard that the three options that best support climate action were regenerative uses in the rural area, rural villages, and distribution of service provision,” Kannellopollous said. “The three options that best support equity were service provision, rural villages, and providing more density and infill in the development areas with green infrastructure.” For the “accommodating growth” lens, the top three options were rural villages, non-residential development at Interstate interchanges, and service provision. Commissioner feedbackCommissioner Karen Firehock said she saw the provision of infrastructure to support development areas as an equity issue.“People should be able to walk to a park or a trail or a healthy environment near to where they live and not have to get in the car and drive a really long way to find something green,” Firehock said. Firehock said the county is expanding some services into the rural area, such as the Southern Convenience Center in Keene. She said that will make it easier for people to meet other environmental goals. Commissioner Lonnie Murray lives in the rural area, and hopes the growth management strategy does not undo work to date. “I think it’s important to have a concept of ‘do no harm’ in the rural area,” Murray said.As an example, he said he wants the county to stop paving gravel roads in the rural area. Bivins urged the Commission to look ahead to the next redistricting after the 2030 Census, when he said the urban areas will continue to have more of the county’s expected population. “If we do not increase the development area, Samuel Miller [District] will end up in the near future as the largest land mass district in Albemarle County.” Bivins said “From an equity standpoint, one has to say ‘is that where we want to go as a county?’” The Weldon Cooper Center for Public Service currently projects Albemarle’s population as increasing to 124,016 by 2030, up from 112,395 in the U.S. Census of 2020. Commissioner Fred Missel said he wanted to know more information about how capital infrastructure works together to support development.“How does the capital plan for infrastructure, how does that inform development and how are they linked together?” Missel asked. “Not to throw the [Rivanna Water and Sewer Authority] into the mix it’s just one that comes to mind. What is their capital plan and how does that support strategic density? How does it support sustainability?” Missel’s day job is as director of design and development at the University of Virginia Foundation. The Foundation is pursuing a rezoning at its North Fork Discovery Park for a potential mixed-use residential complex.

He said he wanted better metrics. “And a lot of times we focus on the big picture but we lose that option to say ‘we know we’re going in the right direction if we’re achieving A, B, C, and D,” Carrazana said. “So I would encourage everyone to think about that as well.” Planning Commissioner Corey Clayborne said density in the right place can help the county achieve certain goals, but he also acknowledged a tension with those who have pushed back. “That’s something we kind of have to wrestle to the ground and I’m not sure if that would be part of the final deliverable here as much as, is there an education sense in this process with the community as we step through this?” Clayborne asked. “Does that mean there are graphics or visuals? I’m not sure what that answer is yet but addressing it… if we can get our arms around and embrace strategic density, I think if you start talking about design importance, that could be a major key to affordable housing.” Commissioner Dan Bailey said one piece of data is experience that comes from what’s been approved and what’s actually been built. “I live in Belvedere and it has a concept that’s been there for nearly ten years of having centers in the community, but it’s been vacant for ten years,” Bailey said. “And we’ve done a lot of approving these novel neighborhood model density and other things where they should have this retail or office building. I would really love to know how many of them have actually been developed.” The next step will be a series of public engagement on the themes as well as the growth management options. Stay tuned.

Guarding the House From Our Enemies (2) (Audio) David Eells - 8/3/22 Factious Infiltrators Steal From God's House Samuel Marychurch - 7/30/22 (David's notes in red) (This teaching from the Lord will be very important to the Church, which is getting ready to go through this same trial of faction in the tribulation.) (We felt this is a warning dream and cast lots to confirm and got 3 heads for a yes.) I dreamed my wife Tiannah (meaning joy, happiness or follower of Christ, representing a disciple of Jesus.) Tiannah and I were staying at a studio apartment. (A studio is a play on words, meaning a place to study the Word.) (We were both in a one room apartment where we shared all things together, in common. This represents one body in Christ.) (Eph. 2:21 in whom each several building, fitly framed together, groweth into a holy temple in the Lord; 22 in whom ye also are builded together for a habitation of God in the Spirit.) The apartment had modern and fancy fixtures throughout. (Modern represents our current time we live in and something to be aware of or pay attention to now.) We had 2 black laptops and many items of value inside the apartment. (This represents our spiritual treasures stored up in heaven [and our “studio" materials.].) (The black laptops represent the treasures of revelations of things hidden in darkness in Isa. 45:3 and I will give thee the treasures of darkness, and hidden riches of secret places, that thou mayest know that it is I, Jehovah, who call thee by thy name, even the God of Israel.)f Our friend Gerald was staying there with us. (Gerald means, "ruler with the spear”. I believe he represents God.) (God's presence is with His people now that our Savior, Emmanuel, meaning, "God with us" has come and reconciled us to God our Father.) Then suddenly this lady appeared. I am not sure who she was but... we didn't invite her. (As we will see, this woman represents the Judas body of antichrist, "sons of perdition” who are thieves, and like their father the devil, they come to steal, kill, and destroy. John 10:10 The thief cometh not, but that he may steal, and kill, and destroy...) Gerald was concerned about her being there because he didn't trust her. Gerald said “I don't know her”. It felt as if he was trying to warn us. (God warns us through His Spirit about people and situations. His Holy Spirit gives us wisdom and discernment, but, as we will see, there's always big trouble when we ignore the warnings and sear our conscience through self-will or evil-reasonings that are against the commands in His Word.) We went out, came back from grocery shopping and our hands were full carrying the groceries. (Hands being full of groceries represents distractions that feed our flesh. When this is occurring our discernment is so diminished that we are blind to the spiritual dangers right in front of us.) When we got to the door to go inside, the lady was there and she offered to open the door for us. She seemed genuine and sincere and it seemed like she just wanted to help us. (2 Co. 11:14 And no marvel; for even Satan fashioneth himself into an angel of light. 15 It is no great thing therefore if his ministers also fashion themselves as ministers of righteousness, whose end shall be according to their works. And Rom. 16:17-18 Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them that are causing the divisions and occasions of stumbling, contrary to the doctrine which ye learned: and turn away from them. 18 For they that are such serve not our Lord Christ, but their own belly; and by their smooth and fair speech they beguile the hearts of the innocent.) So, then I handed her our key chain that had a bunch of different keys on it, along with the door key. (The keys could represent the keys to the Kingdom.) She opened the door and let us in and gave us back the keys. (Mat. 16:19 I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven; and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. Jesus has given us the keys to bind and loose. If we are unwise with this authority we can loose the enemy and open doors for him to steal from us.) Later on, we went out again and came back and when we went to open the door, we realized that the key to the front door wasn't on the key chain. When we checked the front door it was unlocked and the key was left in the door. We went inside and all of our items were gone. I felt upset, and I realized that the lady must have taken the key off the keychain that time that I let her open the door for us. I then woke up. (This reminds me of Hezekiah when he showed all his treasures to the Babylonian embassage and they later came and plundered the Temple and all Jerusalem.) (... I felt the Lord is trying to reveal an imposter may be trying to gain access or has snuck in, to steal, kill, and destroy inside the Body of Christ and to be on guard against it. Don't Climb the Mountain in Your Own Strength Kit Gioura - 7/22/22 (David's notes in red) In this dream I saw two men who had barricaded themselves in a shopping center. Their main goal was to kill everyone in sight. (This is similar to Samuel's dream above. The enemy, in the Judas, antichrist, factious body, as merchants of Babylon are seeking to prey upon and steal from and kill those who are feeding the desires of their flesh.) These two men were prepared for war and they were armed to the hilt. Many were slain by these two men. (Many are taken out because they refuse to go any further in the kingdom by continuing to carry their cross and sacrifice their flesh on the altar of obedience to the Word of God, which warns us of these people.) As they were taking people out, a call went out to the cops who came and started to attack these two men. I could hear the two men saying, “These cops are different here!" (Meaning, they are well prepared) (God's ministers are supposed to enforce the Word of God which exposes these people. The faction, uses slander and criticism to kill, and deceive those who disobey God's commands to separate from them. Tit 3:10 A factious man after a first and second admonition refuse.) Then the scene changed and the two men were now in a house on a country side hill which had green, heathy grass. Inside this house it was dark and these two men were hiding in the darkness waiting to ambush those that were climbing the hill. (The enemy is always targeting those who are seeking to conquer their flesh and climb the hill to Mt. Zion. Jas 3:16 For where jealousy and faction are, there is confusion and every vile deed. And Psalm 11:2 For, lo, the wicked bend the bow, They make ready their arrow upon the string, That they may shoot in darkness at the upright in heart.) Many people took up arms and went up the hill hunting for these two. (This represents our prayers and spiritual warfare that will succeed in taking down these enemies and exposing them. We must not fight in the flesh with anger, retaliation or unforgiveness for then, we too, will fall, as we will see. Eph. 6:10 Finally, be strong in the Lord, and in the strength of his might. 11 Put on the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12 For our wrestling is not against flesh and blood, but against the principalities, against the powers, against the world-rulers of this darkness, against the spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.) One of the men was captured and was taken down. But the other was still hiding out in the corner in the darkness waiting to pounce on people but was later exposed. Many mighty men fell at the hands of these two. (These Judas' have betrayed many and spiritually destroyed and killed many who were weakened through disobedience to the Word and lazy to conquer their flesh and climb the hill to Mt. Zion. Also the devil has authority to come against us, to our own destruction, if we are trying to conquer or fight in our own strength.) Remember What You Heard from the Beginning Vanessa Weeks - 4/13/22 (David's notes in red) I dreamed that it was night and I was climbing a grassy hill. (This hill represents climbing Mt. Zion.) (This represents conquering the flesh by putting it under our feet. 1Pe 1:24 For, All flesh is as grass, And all the glory thereof as the flower of grass. The grass withereth, and the flower falleth). (We are remembering our promise that in Rom 6:11 Even so reckon ye also yourselves to be dead unto sin, but alive unto God in Christ Jesus.12 Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey the lusts thereof: This faith makes it possible to die to self and conquer our flesh as we climb the hill to Mt. Zion, the Bride.) It was very dark but there was a bright light shining on the area where I was climbing. (Psa. 18:28 For thou wilt light my lamp: Jehovah my God will lighten my darkness. And Psa. 119:105 Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, And light unto my path). (Jesus and His Word are what lights our way of obedience.) I knew I had to climb to the top of this hill. It was difficult and I was climbing with my hands and feet. (Representing our works and walk of faith. As disciples of Christ we may walk in His steps and have His works to climb to the top of Mt. Zion.) I heard my husband Barry (Representing the Lord our Heavenly Husband) who was standing by me, but I did not see him. (This symbolizes Jesus always being with us even when we don't see Him.) (Heb. 13:5 ... for himself hath said, I will in no wise fail thee, neither will I in any wise forsake thee.) Barry was telling me to remember to do the things he had told me to do or to do the things I said I would do. (I think these were one and the same. 1Jn 2:24 As for you, let that abide in you which ye heard from the beginning. If that which ye heard from the beginning abide in you, ye also shall abide in the Son, and in the Father.) (Psa. 15:1-5 Jehovah, who shall sojourn in thy tabernacle? Who shall dwell in thy holy hill? 2 He that walketh uprightly, and worketh righteousness, And speaketh truth in his heart; (Being truly honest with ourselves on everything the Spirit shows us or speaks to us about not hardening our hearts thus searing our consciences.) 3 He that slandereth not with his tongue, Nor doeth evil to his friend, Nor taketh up a reproach against his neighbor; 4 In whose eyes a reprobate is despised, But who honoreth them that fear Jehovah; He that sweareth to his own hurt, and changeth not; (i.e. they keep their word even if it hurts them to do so. They don't utter rash vows or promises and then reason away why it's okay not to fulfill them if they truly have the means or the time.) He that putteth not out his money to interest, Nor taketh reward against the innocent. He that doeth these things shall never be moved.) Also I heard David (representing the David Man-child reformers) saying something to me to the same effect. I did not see him either. (Php 2:12 So then, my beloved, even as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling; And Php 2:13 for it is God who worketh in you both to will and to work, for his good pleasure.) When I got about half way up the hill, I got very weary and had to rest for a while. (Gal 6:9 And let us not be weary in well-doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.) I remember thinking of Eve at this point in the dream, (Representing the overcoming Bride) and how she has had her trials and was overcoming, and now it was my turn. Then I woke up. A Rock of Refuge; A Strong Fortress to Save Me Marie Kelton - 7/27/22 (David's notes in red) In the dream, it was night time, and zombies were attacking people. (These zombies, who are the “walking dead" representing those who are possessed with the “stupid demons” of faction.) I got in a car with a couple of other people and we drove to a refuge where the Lord was. (Pro. 18:10 The name of Jehovah is a strong tower; The righteous runneth into it, and is safe.) Then the scene changed and this time I was observing what was happening. The zombies were still attacking people, but then a group of people started using the Word of God. When they used the Word of God, a big square shaped stone came up from under the ground with ancient symbols on it. (This stone is the stone that the builders rejected, which is Christ, who is the ancient Word. The builders became apostate and lost the power of the Word but we must stand on the power of the Word to conquer our enemies. Luk 1:68 Blessed be the Lord, the God of Israel; For he hath visited and wrought redemption for his people, 69 And hath raised up a horn of salvation for us In the house of his servant David ... 71 Salvation from our enemies, and from the hand of all that hate us; ... 73 The oath which he sware unto Abraham our father, 74 To grant unto us that we being delivered out of the hand of our enemies should serve him without fear.) As the zombies were trying to attack people, they would fall on this square shaped stone that had the ancient symbols on it and couldn't move from it. (These zombies are ministers of the curse of sin and death, which Jesus bore for us. Gal. 3:13 Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us; for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree: 14 that upon the Gentiles might come the blessing of Abraham in Christ Jesus. 1 Pe. 2:4-8 unto whom coming, a living stone, rejected indeed of men, but with God elect, precious, 5 ye also, as living stones, are built up a spiritual house, to be a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. 6 Because it is contained in scripture, Behold, I lay in Zion a chief corner stone, elect, precious: And he that believeth on him shall not be put to shame. 7 For you therefore that believe is the preciousness: but for such as disbelieve, The stone which the builders rejected, The same was made the head of the corner; 8 and, A stone of stumbling, and a rock of offence; for they stumble at the word, being disobedient: whereunto also they were appointed.) Judgment on the Faction Marie Kelton - July 30, 2022 (David's notes in red) In the beginning of the dream, there was this black teacher, teaching. (This Black teacher represents the leadership of the faction who have usurped the true leadership and drawn many of the spiritually weak away unto themselves.) I saw this black girl in a bright yellow outfit laying down on a couch. (The black girl represents their followers who are walking in darkness.). (The couch represents a false sense of rest because of their doctrine that, “It's all under the blood.” Also, a couch represents people with psychiatric problems.) When I walked up to her I thought of the spirit of fear because she was wearing all yellow. (The factious followers live in a lot of fear and torments because they are under a curse of separation from the Body through their willful disobedience to the Word.) But when I picked up a card that was next to her, it said, “Depression" in bright yellow like the clothes she was wearing. The card was describing symptoms of depression. (The factious body is in fear and depression because there is no life of Christ living in the darkness of witchcraft [which is rebellion.].) The dream changed and I was now in Debbie Fenske's house looking out the door. There were these big tall evergreens. (Representing the mature disciples in the neighborhood who have eternal life.) In front of the evergreens were huge tigers (Representing factious, predatory leaders seeking to destroy disciples.). They were eating the head of another tiger that was already dead.

Great Shakings Bring Man-child Revival (4) (Audio) David Eells - 7/31/22 Eve Brast in a dream saw 7 large earthquakes that went around the world. Our consideration at that time was that this was caused by an earth tide which would go around the world disrupting the crust as it spun in the face of the passing Planet X. These first 3 revelations resemble this in magnitude and scope. Bill Weather was shown 8 signs by the Lord as a countdown to the date September 12th 2022 for a Mega Japan Quake and tsunami to ruin the U.S. West coastline as a sign of, weeks later, the coming of the California Mega Quake. (Dates are always subject to change due to the Lord's people praying and judgments delayed etc. A delay is not necessarily a delete. Link: Prophecies, Dreams & Visions: Date setting and delays? How to judge the false.) Below are prophesies by Joe Brandt and William Branham from the 1930's that confirm what the Lord is showing Bill Weather: In 1937 Joe Brandt saw an Earthquake sink Los Angeles, much of California and Japan The Coming Earthquake Introduction by Jessica Madigan (Mei Ling) On Christmas Eve, in 1965, my husband—my closest friend, Fran Brandt, and her husband, Joe, were celebrating with sandwiches, and coffee, and fruit cake...For some reason, Joe—Fran's husband—ventured to speak of the coming California earthquake. ... Joe was saying that he had an accident—a fall from a horse when he was 17, and for days he had a concussion. During this period, a continuous dream came again and again—as if he were viewing a tremendous earthquake and inundation in California and other parts of the world. I listened—politely—made some comment, and turned to talk to Fran about a new movie—or some equally world shaking event. I was vaguely aware that Joe had brought in a sheaf of papers—and he said he would put it in my downstairs desk [in 1965] until I had time to read the "dream". That time did not arrive, until, by accident, I came across them this last week [in 1967]—pages upon pages—written in a boy's handwriting, about the coming California earthquake. It would take weeks to research all this material—but I phoned my former geology professor and read portions to him. COULD THIS HAPPEN? COULD CALIFORNIA GO DOWN IN JUST THIS WAY? WOULD OTHER AREAS BE AFFECTED IN A MATTER OF HOURS? He answered in the affirmative. Joe had written (sleeping and dreaming—and in drowsy awakening—about positions of various FAULTS, strata of rock, earth movements, so much material that a geologist of many years would scarcely attempt such a work [this geological data was omitted from Jessica's book]. Yet—here it was—waiting for me to find it for two years. ... Consciously, he knew nothing of geology or of the possibility of a coming earthquake. The notes are 30 years old—yellowed with age—and yet there is a clarity and an unbelievable reality in them. Some of the highlights must be given—because, I am certain now, as I was not certain on Christmas Eve of 1965, that the California earthquake WILL come . . . and its coming is close at hand. Since Joe covered the AREAS AROUND THE WORLD WHICH WOULD BE AFFECTED, not all of these can be given, ... but for those of us in THIS LAND . . . especially CALIFORNIA, these are the highlights of that vision. Dream of an Earthquake Sinking Los Angeles, Much of California and Japan Joe Brandt - 1937 (Link) I woke up in the hospital room with a terrific headache—as if the whole world was revolving inside my brain. I remember, vaguely, the fall from my horse—Blackie. As I lay there, pictures began to form in my mind—pictures that stood still. I seemed to be in another world. Whether it was the future, or it was some ancient land, I could not say. Then slowly, like the silver screen of the "talkies," but with color and smell and sound, I seemed to find myself in Los Angeles—but I swear it was much bigger, and buses and odd-shaped cars crowded the city streets. I thought about Hollywood Boulevard, and I found myself there. Whether this is true, I do not know, but there were a lot of guys my age with beards and wearing, some of them, earrings. All the girls, some of them keen-o, wore real short skirts. . . and they slouched along—moving like a dance. Yet they seemed familiar. I wondered if I could talk to them, and I said, "Hello," but they didn't see or hear me. I decided I would look as funny to them as they looked to me. I guess it is something you have to learn. I couldn't do it. I noticed there was a quietness about the air, a kind of stillness. Something else was missing, something that should be there. At first, I couldn't figure it out, I didn't know what it was—then I did. There were no birds. I listened. I walked two blocks north of the Boulevard—all houses—no birds. I wondered what had happened to them. Had they gone away? Again, I could hear the stillness. Then I knew something was going to happen. I wondered what year it was. It certainly was not 1937. I saw a newspaper on the corner with a picture of the President. It surely wasn't Mr. Roosevelt. He was bigger, heavier, big ears. If it wasn't 1937, I wondered what year it was. . . My eyes weren't working right. Someone was coming—someone in 1937—it was that darned, fat nurse ready to take my temperature. I woke up. Crazy dream. The next day: Gosh, my headache is worse. It is a wonder I didn't get killed on that horse. I've had another crazy dream, back in Hollywood. Those people. Why do they dress like that, I wonder? Funny glow about them. It is a shine around their heads—something shining. I remember it now. I found myself back on the Boulevard. I was waiting for something to happen and I was going to be there. I looked up at the clock down by that big theater. It was ten minutes to four. Something big was going to happen. I wondered if I went into a movie (since nobody could see me) if I'd like it. Some cardboard blond was draped over the marquee with her leg six feet long. I started to go in, but it wasn't inside. I was waiting for something to happen outside. I walked down the street. In the concrete they have names of stars. I just recognized a few of them. The other names I had never heard. I was getting bored, I wanted to get back to the hospital in Fresno, and I wanted to stay there on the Boulevard, even if nobody could see me. Those crazy kids. Why are they dressed like that? Maybe it is some big Halloween doings, but it don't seem like Halloween. More like early spring. There was that sound again, that lack of sound. Stillness, stillness, stillness. The quiet is getting bigger and bigger. I know it is going to happen. Something is going to happen. It is happening now! It sure did. She woke me up, grinning and smiling, that fat one again. "It's time for your milk, kiddo," she says. Gosh, old women of thirty acting like the cat's pajamas. Next time maybe she'll bring hot chocolate. Where have I been? Where haven't I been? I've been to the ends of the earth and back. I've been to the end of the world—there isn't anything left. Not even Fresno, even though I'm lying here right this minute. If only my eyes would get a little clearer so I can write all this down. Nobody will believe me, anyway. I'm going back to that last moment on the Boulevard. Some sweet kid went past, dragging little boys (twins, I guess) by each hand. Her skirt was up—well, pretty high—and she had a tired look. I thought for a minute I could ask her about the birds, what had happened to them, and then I remembered she hadn't seen me. Her hair was all frowzy, way out all over her head. A lot of them looked like that, but she looked so tired and like she was sorry about something. I guess she was sorry before it happened—because it surely did happen. There was a funny smell. I don't know where it came from. I didn't like it. A smell like sulphur, sulfuric acid, a smell like death. For a minute I thought I was back in chem. [Chemistry class]. When I looked around for the girl, she was gone. I wanted to find her for some reason. It was as if I knew something was going to happen and I could stay with her, help her. She was gone, and I walked half a block, then I saw the clock again. My eyes seemed glued to that clock. I couldn't move. I just waited. It was five minutes to four on a sunny afternoon. I thought I would stand there looking at that clock forever waiting for something to come. Then, when it came, it was nothing. It was just nothing. It wasn't nearly as hard as the earthquake we had two years ago. The ground shook, just an instant. People looked at each other, surprised. Then they laughed. I laughed, too. So this was what I had been waiting for. This funny little shake. It meant nothing. I was relieved and I was disappointed. What had I been waiting for? I started back up the Boulevard, moving my legs like those kids. How do they do it? I never found out. I felt as if the ground wasn't solid under me, knew I was dreaming, and yet I wasn't dreaming. There was that smell again, coming up from the ocean. I was getting to the 5 and 10 store and I saw the look on the kids' faces. Two of them were right in front of me, coming my way. "Let's get out of this place. Let's go back East." He seemed scared. It wasn't as if the sidewalks were trembling—but you couldn't seem to see them. Not with your eyes you couldn't. An old lady had a dog, a little white dog, and she stopped and looked scared, and grabbed him in her arms and said: "Let's go home, Frou, Frou. Mama is going to take you home." That poor lady, hanging on to her dog. I got scared. Real scared. I remembered the girl. She was way down the block, probably. I ran and ran, and the ground kept trembling. I couldn't see it. I couldn't see it. But I knew it was trembling. Everybody looked scared. They looked terrible. One young lady just sat down on the sidewalk all doubled up. She kept saying, "earthquake, its the earthquake," over and over. But I couldn't see that anything was different. Then, when it came, how it came. Like nothing in God's world. Like nothing. It was like the scream of a siren, long and low, or the scream of a woman I heard having a baby when I was a kid. It was awful. It was as if something—some monster—was pushing up the sidewalks. You felt it long before you saw it, as if the sidewalks wouldn't hold you anymore. I looked out at the cars. They were honking, but not scared. They just kept moving. They didn't seem to know yet that anything was happening. Then, that white car, that baby half-sized one came sprawling from the inside lane right against the curb. The girl who was driving just sat there. She sat there with her eyes staring, as if she couldn't move, but I could hear her. She made funny noises. I watched her, thinking of the other girl. I said that it was a dream and I would wake up. But I didn't wake up. The shaking had started again, but this time different. It was a nice shaking, like a cradle being rocked for a minute, and then I saw the middle of the Boulevard seem to be breaking in two. The concrete looked as if it were being pushed straight up by some giant shovel. It was breaking in two. That is why the girl's car went out of control. And then a loud sound again, like I've never heard before—then hundreds of sounds—all kinds of sounds; children, and women, and those crazy guys with earrings. They were all moving, some of them above the sidewalk. I can't describe it. They were lifted up. And the waters kept oozing—oozing. The cries. God, it was awful. I woke up. I never want to have that dream again. It came again. Like the first time which was a preview and all I could remember was that it was the end of the world. I was right back there—all that crying. Right in the middle of it. My eardrums felt as if they were going to burst. Noise everywhere. People falling down, some of them hurt badly. Pieces of buildings, chips, flying in the air. One hit me hard on the side of the face, but I didn't seem to feel it. I wanted to wake up, to get away from this place. It had been fun in the beginning, the first dream, when I kind of knew I was going to dream the end of the world or something. This was terrible. There were older people in cars. Most of the kids were on the street. But those old guys were yelling bloody murder, as if anybody could help them. Nobody could help anybody. It was then I felt myself lifted up. Maybe I had died. I don't know. But I was over the city. It was tilting toward the ocean—like a picnic table. The buildings were holding, better than you could believe. They were holding. They were holding. They were holding. The people saw they were holding and they tried to cling to them or get inside. It was fantastic. Like a building had a will of its own. Everything else breaking around them, and they were holding, holding. I was up over them—looking down. I started to root for them. "Hold that line," I said. "Hold that line. Hold that line. Hold that line." I wanted to cheer, to shout, to scream. If the buildings held, those buildings on the Boulevard, maybe the girl—the girl with the two kids—maybe she could get inside. It looked that way for a long time, maybe three minutes, and three minutes was like forever. You knew they were going to hold, even if the waters kept coming up. Only they didn't. I've never imagined what it would be like for a building to die. A building dies just like a person. It gives way, some of the bigger ones did just that. They began to crumble, like an old man with palsy, who couldn't take it anymore. They crumbled right down to nothing. And the little ones screamed like mad—over and above the roar of the people. They were mad about dying. But buildings die. I couldn't look anymore at the people. I kept wanting to get higher. Then I seemed to be out of it all, but I could see. I seemed to be up on Big Bear near San Bernardino, but the funny thing was that I could see everywhere. I knew what was happening. The earth seemed to start to tremble again. I could feel it even though I was high up. This time it lasted maybe twelve seconds, and it was gentle. You couldn't believe anything so gentle could cause so much damage. But then I saw the streets of Los Angeles—and everything between the San Bernardino mountains and Los Angeles. It was still tilting towards the ocean, houses, everything that was left. I could see the big lanes—dozens of big lanes still loaded with cars sliding the same way. Now the ocean was coming in, moving like a huge snake across the land. I wondered how long it was, and I could see the clock, even though I wasn't there on the Boulevard. It was 4:29. It had been half an hour. I was glad I couldn't hear the crying anymore. But I could see everything. I could see everything. Then, like looking at a huge map of the world, I could see what was happening on the land and with the people. San Francisco was feeling it, but she was not in any way like Hollywood or Los Angeles. It was moving just like that earthquake movie with Jeanette McDonald and Gable. I could see all those mountains coming together. . . I knew it was going to happen to San Francisco—it was going to turn over—it would turn upside down. It went quickly, because of the twisting, I guess. It seemed much faster than Hollywood, but then I wasn't exactly there. I was a long way off. I was a long, long way off. I shut my eyes for a long time—I guess ten minutes—and when I opened them I saw Grand Canyon. When I looked at Grand Canyon, that great big gap was closing in, and Boulder Dam was being pushed, from underneath. And then, Nevada, and on up to Reno. Way down south, way down. Baja, California. Mexico too. It looked like some volcano down there was erupting, along with everything else. I saw the map of South America, especially Colombia. Another volcano—eruption—shaking violently. I seemed to be seeing a movie of three months before—before the Hollywood earthquake. Venezuela seemed to be having some kind of volcanic activity. Away off in the distance, I could see Japan, on a fault, too. It was so far off—not easy to see because I was still on Big Bear Mountain, but it started to go into the sea. I couldn't hear screaming, but I could see the surprised look on their faces. They looked so surprised. Japanese girls are made well, supple, easy, muscles that move well. Pretty, too. But they were all like dolls. It was so far away I could hardly see it. In a minute or two it seemed over. Everybody was gone. There was nobody left. [Brother Branham said: "Japan . . . she's ready to rock to pieces right now. And there's no way you can stop it, because they have neglected to do exactly what God told them to do. Instead of preach of Gospel, they have built buildings, and had fine scholarships, and educations" (Uncertain Sound, #61-0415E)]. I didn't know time now. I couldn't see a clock. I tried to see the island of Hawaii. I could see huge tidal waves beating against it. The people on the streets were getting wet, and they were scared. But I didn't see anybody go into the sea. I seemed way around the globe. More flooding. Is the world going to be drenched? Constantinople. Black Sea rising. Suez Canal, for some reason seemed to be drying up. Sicily—she doesn't hold. I could see a map. Mt. Etna. Mt. Etna is shaking. A lot of area seemed to go, but it seemed to be earlier or later. I wasn't sure of time, now. England—huge floods—but no tidal waves. Water, water everywhere, but no one was going into the sea. People were frightened and crying. Some places they fell to the streets on their knees and started to pray for the world. I didn't know the English were emotional. Ireland, Scotland—all kinds of churches were crowded—it seemed night and day. People were carrying candles and everybody was crying for California, Nevada, parts of Colorado—maybe even all of it, even Utah. Everybody was crying—most of them didn't even know anybody in California, Nevada, Utah, but they were crying as if they were blood kin. Like one family. Like it happened to them. New York was coming into view—she was still there, nothing had happened, yet water level was way up. Here, things were different. People were running in the streets yelling—"end of the world." Kids ran into restaurants and ate everything in sight. I saw a shoe store with all the shoes gone in about five minutes. 5th Avenue—everybody running. Some radio blasting—bigger—a loud speaker—that in a few minutes, power might be shut off. They must control themselves. Five girls were running like mad toward the YMCA, that place on Lexington or somewhere. But nothing was happening in New York. I saw an old lady with garbage cans filling them with water. Everybody seemed scared to death. Some people looked dazed. The streets seemed filled with loud speakers. It wasn't daylight. It was night. I saw, like the next day, and everything was topsy turvey. Loud speakers again about fuel tanks broken in areas—shortage of oil. People seemed to be looting markets. I saw a lot of places that seemed safe, and people were not so scared. Especially the rural areas. Here everything was almost as if nothing had happened. People seemed headed to these places, some on foot, some in cars that still had fuel. I heard—or somehow I knew—that somewhere in the Atlantic land had come up. A lot of land. I was getting awfully tired. I wanted to wake up. I wanted to go back to the girl—to know where she was—and those two kids. I found myself back in Hollywood—and it was still 4:29. I wasn't up on Big Bear at all, I was perched over Hollywood. I was just there. It seemed perfectly natural in my dream. I could hear now. I could hear, someplace, a radio station blasting out—telling people not to panic. They were dying in the streets. There were picture stations with movies—some right in Hollywood—these were carrying on with all the shaking. One fellow in the picture station was a little short guy who should have been scared to death. But he wasn't. He kept shouting and reading instructions. Something about helicopters or planes would go over—some kind of planes—but I knew they couldn't. Things were happening in the atmosphere. The waves were rushing up now. Waves. Such waves. Nightmare waves. Then, I saw again. Boulder Dam, going down—pushing together, pushing together breaking apart—no, Grand Canyon was pushing together, and Boulder Dam was breaking apart. It was still daylight. All these radio stations went off at the same time—Boulder Dam had broken. I wondered how everybody would know about it—people back East. That was when I saw the "ham radio operators." I saw them in the darndest places, as if I were right there with them. Like the little guy with glasses, they kept sounding the alarm. One kept saying: "This is California. We are going into the sea. This is California. We are going into the sea. Get to high places. Get to the mountains. All states west—this is California. We are going into the. . . we are going into the. . ." I thought he was going to say "sea," but I could see him. He was inland, but the waters had come in. His hand was still clinging to the table, he was trying to get up, so that once again he could say: "This is California. We are going into the sea. This is California. We are going into the sea." I seemed to hear this, over and over, for what seemed hours—just those words—they kept it up until the last minute—all of them calling out, "Get to the mountains—this is California. We are going into the sea." I woke up. It didn't seem as if I had been dreaming. I have never been so tired. For a minute or two, I thought it had happened. I wondered about two things. I hadn't seen what happened to Fresno and I hadn't found out what happened to that girl. I've been thinking about it all morning. I'm going home tomorrow. It was just a dream. It was nothing more. Nobody in the future on Hollywood Boulevard is going to be wearing earrings—and those beards. Nothing like that is ever going to happen. That girl was so real to me—that girl with those kids. It won't ever happen—but if it did, how could I tell her (maybe she isn't even born yet) to move away from California when she has her twins—and she can't be on the Boulevard that day. She was so gosh-darned real. The other thing—those ham operators—hanging on like that—over and over—saying the same thing: "This is California. We are going into the sea. This is California. We are going into the sea. Get to the mountains. Get to the hilltops. California, Nevada, Colorado, Arizona, Utah. This is California. We are going into the sea." I guess I'll hear that for days. Confirming Prophecies of William Branham A prophecy that I made about 1935 or something like that, said: "The time would come that the sea would weep it's way into the desert." Look what'll take place. If that thousands of square miles falls down into the lava of the earth and slides in, there'll be millions die at one time. And that'll cause such a tidal wave. . . Remember, plumb up into the Salton Sea is a hundred or two hundred feet lower than the sea level. That water will probably come almost to Tucson with that tidal wave coming across there. And the sea shall weep its way into the desert (William Branham, Trying to do God a Service without being in the Will of God, p. 6:25). [The Spirit of the Lord came upon the Prophet as he was preaching in Los Angeles]: "We don't know what time. And you don't know what time that this city one day is going to be laying out here in the bottom of this ocean." "O, Capernaum," said Jesus, "Thou who exalted into heaven will be brought down into hell, for if the mighty works had been done in Sodom and Gomorrah, it'd have been standing till this day." And Sodom and Gomorrah lays at the bottom of the Dead Sea, and Capernaum's in the bottom of the sea. Thou city, who claims to be the city of the Angels, who's exalted yourself into heaven and sent all the dirty filthy things of fashions and things, till even the foreign countries come here to pick up our filth and send it away, with your fine churches and steeples, and so forth the way you do; remember, one day you'll be laying in the bottom of this sea. There's a great cavernous honeycomb under you right now. The wrath of God is belching right beneath you. How much longer will He hold together this sandbar hanging over that? That ocean out yonder ,a mile deep, will slide plumb back to the Salton Sea. It'll be worse than the last day of Pompeii. Repent, Los Angeles. Repent the rest of you and turn to God. The hour of His wrath is upon the earth. Flee while there's time to flee and come into Christ." Let us pray." (Choosing a Bride, p. 35:3-5). [And again]: "The last meeting I had in California, while speaking, and didn't know nothing happened till I got on the street, It told California, I said, "Capernaum, Capernaum, the city that's called by the name of the angels (that's Los Angeles), you've exalted yourself into heaven, but you'll be brought down into hell. For if the mighty works had been done in Sodom that's been done in you, it would've been standing till this day." "Now, the last few days, the great roaring and popping. Then, here come out a paper of science that said, "It's all honeycombed; it's got to go under." They just know it." "And you watch, the water will come plumb back into the Salton Sea. Los Angeles is doomed for judgment. I tell you before it happened, that you might know when it does happen. I never spoke that by myself. And I've never had Him to tell me one thing but what happened. And you can bear record of that. That's right. When? I don't know." "I went out, and they told me what I said. And I listened, went back and searched the Scripture. You know, Jesus said, almost in them same words about Capernaum; and Sodom and Gomorrah was in the bottom of the Dead Sea, I suppose was then. And later, about a hundred years later, Capernaum slid into the sea, and it's in the sea. The same God that put Sodom in the sea for its sins, the same God that put Capernaum in the sea for its sins, the same God will put Los Angeles in the sea for its sins, that city of corruption." (Works is Faith Expressed, p. 8:61-64). (Physical earthquakes and tsunami's can be a sign of spiritual earthquakes and tsunami's. A division of peoples and judgments upon peoples can be signified here. Lets look at the latter spiritual scenario now.) Three Tsunami's of Judgment Hit the West Coast Living in His Glory Ministry - YouTube - 7/7/22 (David's notes in red) In the dream me and my wife were in our house and we were just doing our regular stuff around the house. All of a sudden, we see water start to pour into the house. (Physical tsunami's don't start slowly pouring into a house. They can travel 500 - 700 miles per hour. These are the waters of the Curse of Judgment that begins at the House of God and then makes its way to the rest of the wicked outside of the Church. 1 Pe. 4:17 For the time is come for judgment to begin at the house of God: and if it begin first at us, what shall be the end of them that obey not the gospel of God?) We left the house and took the keys, the wallet, the phone and the stuff we needed and ran out the house up this huge flight of stairs. (The wallet represents provision. The keys represent the key of David. The phone represents our constant communication with the Spirit of God. Rev. 3:7-10 And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write: These things saith he that is holy, he that is true, he that hath the key of David, he that openeth and none shall shut, and that shutteth and none openeth: I know thy works (behold, I have set before thee a door opened, which none can shut), that thou hast a little power, and didst keep my word, and didst not deny my name. 9 Behold, I give of the synagogue of Satan, of them that say they are Jews, and they are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee. 10 Because thou didst keep the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of trial, that hour which is to come upon the whole world, to try them that dwell upon the earth. As we were running up this flight of stairs, I remember telling people, “God's done with it! He's tired of the homosexuals and of people living in sin! He's tired of people fornicating! He gave you time to repent and the same God that flooded Noah's age is the same God that's about to flood you! Repent so you can make it up the stairs!” (Pro 18:10 The name of Jehovah is a strong tower; The righteous runneth into it, and is safe. And 2 Pe. 2:4-9 For if God spared not angels when they sinned, but cast them down to hell, and committed them to pits of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment; 5 and spared not the ancient world, but preserved Noah with seven others, a preacher of righteousness, when he brought a flood upon the world of the ungodly; 6 and turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, having made them an example unto those that should live ungodly; and delivered righteous Lot, sore distressed by the lascivious life of the wicked 8 (for that righteous man dwelling among them, in seeing and hearing, vexed his righteous soul from day to day with their lawless deeds): 9 the Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptation, and to keep the unrighteous under punishment unto the day of judgment.) When I said this, I was referring to this long staircase that was a very tall platform. (Since it's very unlikely that you would see such a platform near the beach and you couldn't outrun a tsunami anyway, this platform represents that in Pro 18:10 The name of Jehovah is a strong tower; The righteous runneth into it, and is safe.) The people on the beach were dressed however they wanted to be, and they laughed at me, as well as the rush of other people that were with me to go up these stairs. (Along with the righteous, those in apostate Christianity may escape some of the initial judgments but ultimately, without repentance, they will be judged for their idolatry with the world and its ways.) So me and my wife go up these stairs and we were looking down from the balcony and we saw this massive tsunami. It was as high as a skyscraper. It hit the West coast and the beaches and killed everyone on the beaches. (Now we do not deny that this could physically happen but, over all, this is obviously a spiritual dream.) And this is the crazy part, we were in a very very high platform that had a staircase going up and on the platform there was a bunch of other people we didn't know. But we were all looking at each other and some people were cooking and talking and other people were just looking down and I was with my wife. This was a massive platform like the size of a small city. (Now if you believe this is literal, I will show you a 7 headed monster with 10 horns that some people also say is literal because they manipulated their DNA. Psa. 9:7-12 But Jehovah sitteth as king for ever: He hath prepared his throne for judgment; 8 And he will judge the world in righteousness, He will minister judgment to the peoples in uprightness. 9 Jehovah also will be a high tower for the oppressed, A high tower in times of trouble; 10 And they that know thy name will put their trust in thee; For thou, Jehovah, hast not forsaken them that seek thee. 11 Sing praises to Jehovah, who dwelleth in Zion: Declare among the people his doings. 12 For he that maketh inquisition for blood remembereth them; He forgetteth not the cry of the poor.) The tsunami was not high enough to reach where we were on the balcony. There was a comfortable amount of separation between us and the tsunami. So we came back down after the tsunami hit and everybody that was on this platform came down and we go back to our regular life. We went back into the house and we were talking and we went back to cooking and to our regular life. (This indicates that the judgments will come in waves because the house was not taken out by the tsunami.) Then the second time, the same thing happened. We saw water coming into the house again, so we went in a hurry, drove our car, parked and this time, there's people arguing in the parking lot! I was like, “Y'all just drop the argument! Let's go up to the platform quickly and this time we didn't try to evangelize, we just ran straight up to the the balcony to this platform. (Rom. 14:1-4 But him that is weak in faith receive ye, yet not for decision of scruples. (Or doubtful disputations) 2 One man hath faith to eat all things: but he that is weak eateth herbs. 3 Let not him that eateth set at nought him that eateth not; and let not him that eateth not judge him that eateth: for God hath received him. 4 Who art thou that judgest the servant of another? to his own lord he standeth or falleth. Yea, he shall be made to stand; for the Lord hath power to make him stand.) The tsunami was even taller this time but the platform was taller too. Everybody was on the beach again the same way as was the first time. I remember thinking to myself and telling everybody around me on the platform, “They just saw the first crowd get wiped out not long ago! This is ridiculous! Why don't they repent and join us?” (I'm sure Noah felt the same way.) Everyone on the beach were a bunch of homosexuals again dressed real nasty. People were drinking and smoking; doing all that they wanted to do on the beach and the wave came again and just took them all away. I saw these sea creature beasts in the waters mingled in. Again the platform was even higher. So once the tsunami swept everything out to sea then we went down the platform again. Then it happened the third time. This time I remembered more vividly the path that we were taking to run to the platform. And as we were running, there were people looking at us like we were crazy. I said, “Y'all are crazy! You don't understand!” But they just looked at us like we were out of our minds because we had everything we needed like: our ID's, our wallet, some cash, house keys in case we came back again. We just had enough to actually make it to the platform to survive on the platform. But everybody around down on the streets were just talking and so casual, but I and my wife knew in the Spirit that something serious and terrible was about to hit. (Yes it will.) So we ran up to this platform the third time and when I saw the wave coming, we were still very comfortably above the tsunami. This last tsunami was massive because the platform was shaking like an earthquake. It wasn't rocking but we knew there was a seriousness to this last one. Then I woke up and I couldn't go back to sleep for awhile and I prayed about it, that God would account me and my wife worthy to not go through that wave of judgment. (Luk 21:34-36 But take heed to yourselves, lest haply your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and that day come on you suddenly as a snare: 35 for so shall it come upon all them that dwell on the face of all the earth. 36 But watch ye at every season, making supplication, that ye may prevail to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.) My interpretation of the dream is that there's going to be a series of judgments that's going to be passed upon the West coast because this place, where I live, is full of wickedness and perversion. (There is a larger interpretation of this dream that involves all of apostate Christianity as well as the wicked of the earth receiving these judgments.) About six months ago, I had a very similar dream where I was on a beach and I was looking. No one was there and it was really dark and cloudy; really ominous feeling. I heard thunder but I didn't see lightning and I knew in the Spirit that a tsunami was coming. Then a couple months later, I dreamed I saw our family members that don't want to go with Christ and I was on a boat with Jesus and I reached my hand out and said, “Y'all get on the boat in Jesus' name and they said, ” We'll get on the boat but don't say, “In Jesus' name.” I said, “What are you talking about?! Get on the boat so you don't drown, in Jesus' name!” They just crossed their arms and said, “No” and they drowned and died. Then I woke up. God isn't playing y'all. When the Word of God tells us to repent it means, “Stop living in sin!” You can stop living in sin. You can carry your cross…You need to be walking by the Spirit to not get swept away; walk by the Spirit and you will not satisfy the desires of the flesh and get ready. We're not going to make it … trusting in our own wisdom to get out of judgment. Household Salvation from Tsunami's Angelica Garza - 7/14/22 (David's notes in red) After watching some videos concerning prophetic warnings of tsunami's, I was praying for all the people, and for my family that lives on the Gulf Coast of Texas. I asked the Lord to show me if my family was in danger, or if any tsunami would hit Corpus Christi. I am not sure if this dream is literal or spiritual or both, so I will just share what I remember. In the dream, I was at my aunt's house which is a small wooden house, only in the dream the house was not exactly the same as it is in real life. The inside layout seemed bigger and different. (This represents the larger corporate apostate Church. Which many of our loved ones are still trapped in.) God likens Israel and Judah as two sisters, represented by the Aunt and Angelica's mom, in Eze. 23:1-31. In verse 4 it says, Oholah the elder, and Oholibah her sister: and they became mine, and they bare sons and daughters. And as for their names, Samaria is Oholah, and Jerusalem Oholibah. These two played the Harlot with the surrounding nations and were judged by God.) I was looking out from what should be the back door or porch area, only it was not the backyard... The “porch" looked like the sea wall we have in downtown Corpus Christi which has steps leading down to the sea level. Instead of seeing the sea, it seemed I was looking out at a dried-up river bed.My brother and sister's home was way out in the distance to the right. It seemed the water had already receded way beyond their home. I knew that it was still receding even beyond my view. It was building up to be something terrible or massive like a huge tsunami. (Representing huge judgments coming upon the apostate Church. But many of God's elect will be sparred or preserved through it.) I called my mom and aunt out to come and see, as I was alarmed about it. I told them it was coming and we need to get back inside the house before it came. My mom was being stubborn and was not concerned. This upset me but she reluctantly went inside. (The apostate Church has been ignoring God's true prophets and His warnings for many years. Their doctrine allows their stubborn, self-willed rebellion to the Word of God because of their false doctrinal beliefs. The Lord will have mercy on many who are trapped in apostasy so that they can be saved in the coming judgments.) The water now began to rush in slowly (sort of in a controlled fashion). It seems that it should of come in much faster in natural terms, but it didn't. (This is just like the revelation above where the water started coming in to the house but they had time to make it to the tower of safety.) The water was coming up the steps and above the house. The odd thing is that I was still watching it through a glass door that I had not seen before. It was like watching fish and things in an aquarium with mirky water. (Mat 13:47-50 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a net, that was cast into the sea, and gathered of every kind: 48 which, when it was filled, they drew up on the beach; and they sat down, and gathered the good into vessels, but the bad they cast away. 49 So shall it be in the end of the world: the angels shall come forth, and sever the wicked from among the righteous, 50 and shall cast them into the furnace of fire: there shall be the weeping and the gnashing of teeth.) Now somehow, I was in the bathroom on the right side of the back door and I was now trapped in there with the same aquarium-type view of the murky water above the house. (The bathroom is a place where we get rid of spiritual waste in our lives, then we will be on the right side.) I was thinking, “Can I breathe in here?”, “I just have to wait until the water goes down.” (Being able to breathe under the water represents that the "new man" is safe, but the “old man” dies in the baptism.) I knew the water would go down and that somehow the house would still be left standing. Then I woke up. (The house is our external vessel which is now taken over by the spiritual man.)I asked the Lord for a word by faith at random and my finger was on “a centurion came to beseech him.” (This story represents the household salvation that we receive for our loved ones through faith in the promises.) Mat 8:5 (5-13 in context) 5 And when he was entered into Capernaum, (In William Branham's prophecy above the Lord is calling Los Angeles, “Capernaum”. Los Angeles will fall into the sea just as Sodom and Gomorrah did. Just like the Centurion's servant was saved in Capernaum through his faith so will our loved ones be.) there came unto him a centurion, beseeching him, 6 and saying, Lord, my servant lieth in the house sick of the palsy, grievously tormented. 7 And he saith unto him, I will come and heal him. 8 And the centurion answered and said, Lord, I am not worthy that thou shouldest come under my roof; but only say the word, and my servant shall be healed. 9 For I also am a man under authority, having under myself soldiers: and I say to this one, Go, and he goeth; and to another, Come, and he cometh; and to my servant, Do this, and he doeth it. 10 And when Jesus heard it, he marvelled, and said to them that followed, Verily I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel. 11 And I say unto you, that many shall come from the east and the west, and shall sit down with Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, in the kingdom of heaven: 12 but the sons of the kingdom shall be cast forth into the outer darkness: there shall be the weeping and the gnashing of teeth. 13 And Jesus said unto the centurion, Go thy way; as thou hast believed, so be it done unto thee. And the servant was healed in that hour. I was thinking of Isa 43:1-21 for the dream: 1 But now thus saith Jehovah that created thee, O Jacob, and he that formed thee, O Israel: Fear not, for I have redeemed thee; I have called thee by thy name, thou art mine. 2 When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned, neither shall the flame kindle upon thee. 3 For I am Jehovah thy God, the Holy One of Israel, thy Saviour; I have given Egypt as thy ransom, Ethiopia and Seba in thy stead. 4 Since thou hast been precious in my sight, and honorable, and I have loved thee; therefore will I give men in thy stead, and peoples instead of thy life. 5 Fear not; for I am with thee: I will bring thy seed from the east, and gather thee from the west; 6 I will say to the north, Give up; and to the south, Keep not back; bring my sons from far, and my daughters from the end of the earth; 7 every one that is called by my name, and whom I have created for my glory, whom I have formed, yea, whom I have made. 8 Bring forth the blind people that have eyes, and the deaf that have ears. 9 Let all the nations be gathered together, and let the peoples be assembled: who among them can declare this, and show us former things? let them bring their witnesses, that they may be justified; or let them hear, and say, It is truth. 10 Ye are my witnesses, saith Jehovah, and my servant whom I have chosen; that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I am he: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me. 11 I, even I, am Jehovah; and besides me there is no saviour. 12 I have declared, and I have saved, and I have showed; and there was no strange god among you: therefore ye are my witnesses, saith Jehovah, and I am God. 13 Yea, since the day was I am he; and there is none that can deliver out of my hand: I will work, and who can hinder it? 14 Thus saith Jehovah, your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel: For your sake I have sent to Babylon, and I will bring down all of them as fugitives, even the Chaldeans, in the ships of their rejoicing. 15 I am Jehovah, your Holy One, the Creator of Israel, your King. 16 Thus saith Jehovah, who maketh a way in the sea, and a path in the mighty waters; 17 who bringeth forth the chariot and horse, the army and the mighty man (they lie down together, they shall not rise; they are extinct, they are quenched as a wick): 18 Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old. 19 Behold, I will do a new thing; now shall it spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert. 20 The beasts of the field shall honor me, the jackals and the ostriches; because I give waters in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert, to give drink to my people, my chosen, 21 the people which I formed for myself, that they might set forth my praise.

It's 2022 and it's time to get with the program people. PUT YOUR WORK ONLINE. Do it in a fashion that makes sense to you. Whether that be hosting your own website portfolio or starting a YouTube channel focusing on the creative process. Overall, sharing *content* online is essentially necessary in this digital age. Representing one-third of the Frameform team (Hannah here), I find that the internet is the one of the best outlets to share and explore dance film as it already embodies a niche community spanning across the globe. As the next generation navigates its ways through short-form scrollable content, the digital hemisphere is a natural homebase to display a gallery of visually stimulating homemade works. It's time to normalize dance film online by tagging films in a way that makes it easier to find. Post your experimental shorts, narrative driven ballets, and all the bingeable storytelling that will make people want to hit that replay button. We're one short host this week, but Hannah and Clare jump in, reflecting and looking forward to what's to come on the forecast of the screendance metaverse.–ANNOUNCEMENTSThere are so many festivals accepting dance film submissions right now! Please take the time to visit the International Screendance Calendar to scroll through upcoming events and festivals happening all over the world.

God is Sovereign to Meet Our Needs (2) (Audio) David Eells - 7/27/22 Father Helps Homeless Souls Through Our Testimonies Isaac Payne - 4/10/2022 I dreamed I was in a recreational room that was upstairs and the walls were white. It was very spacious and included large areas for gaming and lounging. This area was for men and they held retreats there. I knew I was about to be visited by Malcolm from the UBM Zoom ministry. Malcolm, in this dream, was a wealthy man and very respected. (Malcolm means, “Devoted to St. Columba, which means, “Dove.” So he is devoted to following the Holy Spirit. He likely represents Jesus in the Man-child reformer body who is very rich.) As I was waiting in the recreational room, Malcolm approached me. He was a tall (meaning very mature), slender man and he had a mustache. (I believe this represents authority over the tongue. [Hair is a sign of submission in 1 Co.11.] Pro. 18:21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue; And they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof. Jam. 3:2 For in many things we all stumble. If any stumbleth not in word, the same is a perfect man, able to bridle the whole body also. Pro. 10:20 The tongue of the righteous is choice silver.) Malcolm had an entourage of people that worked for him. (Representing the angels that are sent forth to do service for God's elect. In several of our dreams the Man-child David's had an entourage of Secret Service Angels that did His bidding. Heb 1:14 Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to do service for the sake of them that shall inherit salvation?) He told me that he was sponsoring a homeless man and was looking for help to get this man off the streets. (Many of God's elect are “homeless” on the streets of Babylon.) He had bought an apartment in a high rise building for this man to stay in. (This represents Zion, the Bride, the tower of the flock where the righteous run into it and are safe. The Lord paid for us to live in Zion, a high calling of God.) Malcolm asked me if there was anything I could offer to assist in furnishing the apartment. I looked over next to me and saw a filing cabinet. (The filing cabinet represents the wealth of knowledge that we've stored up in our renewed minds from reading the Word. Then they are transformed by renewing their mind. This is how we help our homeless brethren and furnish their tabernacle.) I opened it and found some spare change. (I think the change represents repentance, or a "change of mind”, for those who are spiritually homeless.) I gave Malcom the spare change and laughed about it after handing him the change because I knew I could offer more help. I went to look again in the filing cabinet and money was flowing out of it. I didn't know where the money was coming from, but it kept multiplying. (All provision comes by the knowledge of God's promises like this one in Php 4:19 My God shall supply your every need according to His riches in glory.) I told Malcolm to take all of the money and he accepted it. (The Lord will multiply our seed for sowing.) I once again looked inside the filing cabinet to see if there was anything else I could give. Then I began to pull out personal trophies of mine. These trophies were gold and the figurine on top was of Jesus on the cross. There were many trophies that were awarded to me which represent the victories Father has given me to help overcome self. (As we will see, these trophies, in turn, are testimonies of God's power through Christ working in our lives that encourages others and builds their faith.) (Luk. 14:27 Whosoever doth not bear his own cross, and come after me, cannot be my disciple. 28 For which of you, desiring to build a tower, doth not first sit down and count the cost, whether he have wherewith to complete it? This fits really well with this dream of Malcolm buying an apartment in a high rise building, representing the tower. The high rise was built with a strong foundation in the dream as we will see later.) The apartment was already purchased also. (Jesus said, “It is finished” when He had purchased the souls of men with His blood upon the cross.) (Mat. 16:24 The said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man would come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. And Gal. 2:20 I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I that live, but Christ living in me: and that life which I now live in the flesh I live in faith, the faith which is in the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself up for me.) Malcolm was very interested in the trophies more so than the money. (God owns the cattle on a thousand hills. Money is nothing to Him. But the blood of His Son and the crucified life that He set forth as an example for us is priceless and of eternal value.) He asked if he could decorate the apartment he had bought for the homeless man with the trophies. I obliged. (I believe that circumstances, the curse, and the flesh that we overcome through Gods grace, prepares our own testimonies to help others overcome their circumstances, the curse, and the flesh in their lives.) Malcolm was about to leave and asked me to help the homeless man into the apartment in the high rise. Malcolm instructed one of his workers in his entourage to assist and guide me. The person appeared to be a young adult who was very professional, clean cut, and dressed in business attire. …(Angels are all about God's business.) We walked out of the recreational room into the tower. Apparently, the recreational room was also in the high rise building. We walked down the hallway together talking and enjoying each others company. As we were walking, we found the homeless man laying on the hallway floor and incoherent. He had glasses and was in dirty clothing. (I believe the homeless man represents those who are lost and those in apostasy that are being transformed by the truth. John 14:23 Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my word: and my father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him. The loss of blood represents the nature of sin passed on through parents; leaving the homeless man. Lev. 17:11 For the life of the flesh is in the blood; and I have given it to you upon the altar to make atonement for your souls: for it is the blood that maketh atonement by reason of the life. I believe the glasses represent eyes that do not see well and his filthy garments are outward sin and works of the flesh.) His head was split open and his blood was spilling on the floor. He lost a tremendous amount of blood. In the natural, a person shouldn't be able to survive that much loss of blood. The homeless man naturally would have died with that much blood loss but he did not. (This loss of blood represents the loss of our old nature and life because it's being replaced by Christ's nature and His blood.) I believe that those who come out from among them and make God their strong tower will have the nature of Christ. It is His blood, His lineage that we are now a part of. John 6: 53-56 Jesus therefore said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man and drink his blood, ye have not life in yourselves. 54 He that eateth my flesh and drinketh my blood hath eternal life: and I will raise him up at the last day. 55. For my flesh is meat indeed, and my blood is drink indeed. 56 He that eatheth my flesh and drinketh my blood abideth in me, and I in him.) The homeless man was still on the ground and incoherent. I pointed at the man and told him to get up in the name of Jesus. The homeless man woke up and tried to stand on his feet, but his legs were buckling underneath him. He didn't have the strength to stand on his own. I told the homeless man to walk in Jesus name and he was able to stand and began to walk. (Amos 7:7 … O Lord Jehovah, forgive, I beseech thee: how shall Jacob stand? for he is small. And Rom 14:4 … he shall be made to stand; for the Lord hath power to make him stand.) (I believe this represents those who once could not walk uprightly but now can. Matt. 11:5 ...the blind receive their sight, and the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, and the deaf hear, and the dead are raised up, and the poor have good tidings preached to them.) As the homeless man was standing, the young professional man pointed at a door in the hallway. He said, "This is the apartment Malcolm bought for him.” I opened the door to guide the homeless man inside. The apartment was white and very luxurious. It was a beautiful, expensive apartment in the high rise building. (An apartment is a house joined to other houses as in Eph 2:21 in whom each several building, fitly framed together, groweth into a holy temple in the Lord.) I noticed inside the apartment was a grand piano. ( We are like a finely tuned piano in that when God touches a key the correct note comes out.) The homeless man walked into his new apartment to get familiar with it. I gave him some space and closed the door as I stood in the hallway. The clean cut business man looked at me and said, “You have to lock the door behind him so he doesn't leave." I turned to the door and locked it with the homeless man inside his apartment. This door was able to be locked from the outside. (Representing being sealed into the Kingdom by the blood of Christ. He will not lose any that the Father hath given Him.) In the hallway of the high-rise building was a large window that looked out over the city scape. It was a very big city with many high-rise buildings. The young professional business man and I stood next to the window observing the city. We talked for awhile and laughed and had great fellowship. The young professional man looked at me seriously and pointing towards the ground, which was a long way down from where we were standing. He said something along the lines of, "Those who jump off, never survive the fall." It was a very serious moment and quite sobering. I remember feeling sad for those who lose their soul for either jumping off or falling off the high rise. (Heb. 6:4-6 For as touching those who were once enlightened and tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Spirit, 5 and tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the age to come, 6 and then fell away, it is impossible to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame.) I could tell the young man was sad about it also. (The tower represents the Bride who is manifesting the Name which in Greek means, the nature, character, and authority of the Lord.) Pro. 18:10 The name of Jehovah is a strong tower, The righteous runneth into it, and is safe. The ground represents the world. 1 Jo. 2:15-17 Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the father is not in him. 16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh and the lust of the eyes and the vain glory of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. 17 And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever. Mat 6:24 No man can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon. At this point, the young professional business man and I were translated to David Eells' house. We were standing on his front porch. His house in this dream was a log cabin made of cedar trees. (I think the cedar represents eternal life and preservation against excessive rot due to water and insect infestation. Psalms 92:12 The righteous shall flourish like the palm-tree: He shall grow like cedar in Lebanon. Also, cedar can grow in parched places where there is not much water. As you will see below, this fits with the revelation that Father gave further on in the dream. Also, the cedar can take root in a rock and they can grow to maturity. (The house that Solomon built the Lord was lined with cedar. This represents the House of the Son of David that is being built and restored in these coming days.) ... Jesus is the rock! Mat. 21:42 Jesus saith unto them, Did ye never read in the scriptures, The stone which the builders rejected, The same was made the head of the corner, This was from the Lord, And it is marvelous in our eyes?) In this dream the porch of David's house had an A frame type architecture. It was a very beautiful porch that was on a hill and faced toward the trees. It seemed like a house hidden in the forest. (In real life, my house is hidden in a forest on top of a mountain.) The young professional business man and I sat on the porch looking out over the forest. (The forest represents the wilderness tribulation that is soon beginning.) Behind us was an older lady and man. (Representing the old man and those that are submitted to him who speak contrary to the Word.) They seemed to be married and were sitting on a rocking chair. The older lady looked up and pointed at the A frame cedar architecture and said, "In so many years these cedars are going to need to be refinished." The young professional man and I just looked at her, but didn't say anything. I felt in the dream not to acknowledge what she had said, as something didn't feel right about it. (We should never listen to or acknowledge the old man who doesn't believe in the nature of eternal life which the cedar represents.) At this point, I looked at the young professional business man and said, "You want to hear a revelation the Lord gave to me?" The young man nodded. I continued, "The valley of the shadow of death is parched land and the Sun scorches all unto death." As I said this to him, it was almost like a vision in the dream. I could see a very arid climate, almost like a desert with red canyons on both sides and no grass or vegetation to be found. (I believe this means the flesh is put to death on our journey with the sun/Son. Isa. 40:6-8 the voice of one saying, Cry. And one said, what shat I cry? All flesh is grass, and all goodliness thereof is as the flower of the field. 7 The grass withereth, the flower fadeth, because the breath of Jehovah bloweth upon it; surely the people is grass. 8 The grass withereth, the flower fadeth; but the word of our God shall stand forever. Psa. 23:4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death (to self), I will fear no evil; for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff, they comfort me.) After I said this, the older woman and older man were no where to be found. I don't know where they went and they were not inside the house either. Then I woke up. (The flesh died. The more we ignore the mouth and words of the old man, the weaker he becomes until he vanishes away in the light of the Word.) Testimony: Healed from Depression Missy Pollock - 7/17/22 This is a testimony my sister, Cindy, sent to me. She had emailed us a couple of weeks ago asking for prayer because she was dealing with depression. This is her update: "So I wanted to let you know how the depression had come and gone.I was playing games on my phone and using Face book again. It was over a period of time that I kept adding more and more games on my phone. Then the time on my phone was increasing more and more, it's all I wanted to do. In this process I was feeling or sensing less satisfaction and contentment. I struggled with deleting them or using them less. I just simply couldn't stop. I was trying to rationalize their use. I had gotten to a point that I had no desire to cook or garden. These are the creative side of me, they bring me satisfaction, hope, contentment. I'd go to church and feel good and get home miserable. For weeks songs and music were empty. I wasn't delighting in nature. Devotionals were stagnant. And Bible reading came rarely. After a couple weeks of all this and getting worse, I realized I was depressed. After some prayer and honesty with God I realized it was the phone games and Face book. I still struggled to stop their use and remove them. Finally, Thursday I broke down, crying, begging, pleading with God. I told him I wanted my joy back, to have a hunger and thirst for Him again; to celebrate and rejoice in Him and to surrender. I KNEW I couldn't do it in my own strength and asked for Him to strengthen me. My answer was simply to delete and remove all my games and Face book, which I did without hesitation. The best part was, it was an immediate freedom. I felt a relief. No more heavy weight on my heart, mind, body or soul. My depression is gone and my joy returned!!! The songs, music, flowers, clouds, cooking, devotionals, Bible reading and Holy Spirit are filling me with a sense of wonder, awe and contentment again. Thank you my loving and gracious God and Father!!! Teach me your will, for you are my God! May your good Spirit lead me forward on solid ground. Amen"Thank you Lord for setting Cindy free! Father I ask you to use Cindy and the experience with depression and media addiction mightily to set your elect free and as a tool to preach the gospel, in Jesus mighty name! Hallelujah, glory to God! Testimony: Healed From a Stroke Claire Pienaar - 7/1/22 I was praying the other night for my friend's dad to receive his healing from a stroke. I was imagining my hand touching his heart and healing him with the power of Jesus in me. Then I had this vision: I saw Jesus' profile, smiling. To his left, was the massive archangel, Michael, who had a gold body plate on. He clenched his muscles as a sign that he was ready. Jesus put his head back and laughed and He smiled the most beautiful smile I've ever seen. Then He said, “It's time, Michael” or “Let's go, Michael”. At that point, many angels filed in behind the archangel Michael making a “V” formation, and there was so much light shining from them that it was blinding. I opened my eyes, told Riaan what I saw, and then closed them again and saw Jesus, once more, smiling. There was real joy coming from Him, and Michael was smiling too, agreeing with Jesus. Then I fell asleep. On the Sunday after I prayed, I received this text from my friend concerning her father-in-law. "Morning Claire!! Thank you for joining us in praying for my father-in-law!! It has been quite a confusing few days, so many mixed messages coming at us. My mother-in-law is forgetting so many things, or misunderstanding things, and the hospital staff are much the same it seems. So, now that we finally know what's going on, I am pleased to report that my father-in-law is home, and nothing has shown up from his MRI scan!! No sign of a stroke. They are believing it to be a flare up of his Bell's Palsy, from being overworked and out in the cold. But the nurse says that doesn't explain his numbness and weakness in his arms etc. So, I believe it was a stroke but the scan showed nothing on Friday because he had been healed!!!" Testimony: Take Life One Day at a Time Eve Brast - 7/24/22 (David's notes in red) I wanted to preface this dream below with a testimony what I feel the Lord has shown me about my experience. (And I feel this is very prophetic.) For quite awhile I and several of my brethren that I've spoken with, have all been experiencing being led through a valley or a dry place, spiritually speaking. It has been a place where all you have left is your faith to cling to, that you are saved, healed, delivered, and provided for. It is a place of seeming nothingness; no feeling of closeness or connection to God. It is a place where every morning you have to wake up and pray for strength, wisdom and guidance just for that day, and this is where God wants us in this season before the Man-child returns and a great outpouring of His anointing power is poured out upon us and the greatest revival the world has ever known ensues. He wants us to come to a place where we no longer dwell on the past because, if we've repented, it no longer exists in His Book of Remembrance. We can't look to the future because it's not guaranteed us. We only have today to be a good steward and disciple of this day that he's given us. It is a great blessing and a relief to come to this knowledge. This is truly where the realization and acknowledgment of our weakness lies and the benefits of entering into His rest and peace are found. Jas 4:13-16 Come now, ye that say, To-day or to-morrow we will go into this city, and spend a year there, and trade, and get gain: 14 whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. What is your life? For ye are a vapor, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away. 15 For that ye ought to say, If the Lord will, we shall both live, and do this or that. 16 But now ye glory in your vauntings: all such glorying is evil. As human beings who learn from an early age to rely so heavily on our 5 basic senses and our thoughts and feelings. This is how we've learned to gauge our success or progress as well as relying on the input and feedback from authority figures i.e. parents, bosses, and even God to affirm our value and worth. But God wants to ween us off of our senses or feelings and emotions that we rely on to grope around in the dark for reassurance of our right-standing with Him or our value to Him. The enemy gets us into a mental and emotional trap by throwing up illusions in our minds of walls between us and God that don't exist; convincing us that we are separated from Him or that He has left us, or that He is displeased or angry with us, and this is why we are receiving the “silent treatment” from God. We tend to make assumptions based on past experiences and try to compare our current walk with the Lord based on our past walk experiences. The only escape is to continually go back to the Word and cast down every thought that is contrary to it. We must do this daily because the battleground is in the mind. That's where all the victories happen and the defeats take place. God wants us to simply say, “Your Word is true about me and about You. You are not a man that You should lie, and all Your promises to me are yes and amen. It is no longer I that live but Christ in me. Etc.” The Bible says to take captive EVERY thought. We must get on God's side to defeat the devil in our thought lives and in our souls.

"Do I need a lawyer?" is a common question for many people when faced with the reality that they're getting divorced. There are common perceptions that you'll save a ton of money and a judge may even feel bad for you because you are the underdog, but if you don't get a lawyer, then you have to be prepared and understand the letter of the law. The harsh reality is that not having a lawyer may hurt you, especially if you have to go to court. This episode exposes the real truth on whether or not you should really do it alone.

Provision to Preserve & Build the Kingdom (2) (Audio) David Eells - 7/20/22 Healing and Promises for the Bride Claire Pienaar - 3/14/22 (David's notes in red) I dreamed I was on the Outreach Zoom meeting, and I was the only one there. (I represent the Bride body, because my name means “brilliance” which represents the righteous acts of the saints and her lampros garment in Revelation 19). Michael was on the other side of the screen in the Zoom meeting. He was very smiley. (Michael represents Father, because his name means “who is like God?”). (The Zoom outreach represents the Father's “outreach” through His Man-child reformers to His elect in these last days.) He threw green leaves all over towards the screen, like he wanted to shower me with green leaves. (The green leaves represent the healing that will be given to the nations through the worldwide Man-child reformer ministries).(He will pour out His anointing and gifts upon the Man-child and the Bride to bring healing to His elect among the nations. Rev 22:2 in the midst of the street thereof. And on this side of the river and on that was the tree of life, bearing twelve manner of fruits, yielding its fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.) Then he reached further back into his room, and took, what looked like, pieces of a rainbow and started throwing these at me too. Some of these pieces looked like mini-rainbows and some looked like broken-off pieces of a bigger rainbow with all the colors. Still, other pieces were only one specifically colored piece of the rainbow. (God's elect, even His first fruits, have gained varying levels of His wisdom and maturity and are from every nation, tribe and tongue. They all display the rainbow attributes of the light of Christ to varying degrees and when He returns He will fill us up in the areas that we are lacking and complete our understanding.) I think others then appeared to receive these rainbow pieces and I was no longer alone on the Zoom meeting. (The Bride will be the first to partake of the healing. What is it that will draw the Church and save their lives? The rainbow represents escape from world-wide destruction so this represents grace to escape the curse of death. In this case also this is by the knowledge of the coat of many colors just like Joseph wore, who escaped death. Jesus is the light and the colors are the attributes of the light. 2 Pe 1:2 Grace to you and peace be multiplied in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord; 3 seeing that his divine power hath granted unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that called us by his own glory and virtue; 4 whereby he hath granted unto us his precious and exceeding great promises; that through these ye may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped from the corruption that is in that world by lust. (Notice: what is about to be taught will cause the Church to escape the corrupt world and its curse of death) 5 Yea, and for this very cause adding on your part all diligence in your faith, (Notice: All of the 7 attributes of Christ, the light, are provided IN faith and there was no comma after diligence in the Greek. These are the seven refractions of light through a prism) supply virtue; and in your virtue knowledge; 6 and in your knowledge self-control; and in your self-control patience; and in your patience godliness; 7 and in your godliness brotherly kindness; and in your brotherly kindness love. 8 For if these things are yours and abound, they make you to be not idle nor unfruitful unto the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. (Notice: These attributes are gained by the knowledge of Christ) (The rainbow is a sign of Father's promise to never again flood the entire earth. Gen 9:13-16, 13 I do set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a covenant between me and the earth. 14 And it shall come to pass, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the bow shall be seen in the cloud, 15 and I will remember my covenant, which is between me and you and every living creature of all flesh; and the waters shall no more become a flood to destroy all flesh. 16 And the bow shall be in the cloud; and I will look upon it, that I may remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is upon the earth.) I asked the Lord for a verse by faith at random, and received Psalm 147:3 He healeth the broken in heart, And bindeth up their wounds. Praise God! Purchasing "the Pen of a Ready Writer" Claire Pienaar - 3/11/22 (David's notes in red) I believe this dream is about "Leaves for the Healing of the Nations”. I dreamed I was in a Christian bookstore. (Claire, representing the Bride is always studying to show herself approved. 2Ti 2:15 KJV Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.) I was looking for a mechanical pencil to do Bible study, but it was so difficult to find one. There were many engraved, over-priced pencils around me, but nothing that was simple and inexpensive. (These over-priced pencils represent works of our hands; leaning on the arm of the flesh which always costs money, but God's works, represented by the simple mechanical pencil, are “inexpensive” and simple because we purchase them by our Faith in the blood of Jesus.) I waited so long and I was so patient with the lady at the cashier. Rev. 3:18 I counsel thee to buy of me gold refined by fire, that thou mayest become rich; and white garments, that thou mayest clothe thyself… (Waiting on the Lord produces the fruit of the Spirit; long-suffering, which brings this refinement.) There were many other pretty things available, and I saw many other women come into the store buying things, but I only wanted to buy a pencil. None of these other women were talking or smiling and they all seemed to buy gifts for other people. I was only buying one thing for myself, however, I had to buy a two-pack. (Isa. 55:1-2 Ho, every one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters, and he that hath no money; come ye, buy, and eat; yea, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price. 2 Wherefore do ye spend money for that which is not bread? and your labor for that which satisfieth not? hearken diligently unto me, and eat ye that which is good, and let your soul delight itself in fatness. God's ministers are not to charge for God's gifts but to live by faith."Freely you have received, freely give.") I asked the cashier to give me extra lead because I was going to write a lot in my Bible. She did not have extra lead and told me to go to another convenience store but I did not want to. While there the Holy Spirit told me to go home, so I did. (We must trust the Lord for our Manna, daily, and not store up or it will breed worms and be lost. We are commanded to gather a days portion every day.) I went to my father's old house. (Claire's father represents our Heavenly Father. His “old house” represents the old paths of the original Church gospel that imputed power. Jer. 6:16 Thus saith Jehovah, Stand ye in the ways and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way; and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls...) I climbed into my dad's side of the bed. The bedding was really old blue bedding with white little flowers printed on it. (The blue bedding represents resting in the heavenlies, and the white flowers represent purity.) (The Bride rests in heavenly places in Christ Jesus, who is the Father of Eternity; in sanctification and purity from the world and its ways.) I then looked up and Michael came into the room. I looked down and realized I had a green clutch or small purse and a mechanical pencil and I saw green leaves in my Bible. (The green clutch and the green leaves represent Father's provision for tribulation and ministry.) Then I replied, “I don't have anyone to shop with but look, now I have this pencil and there's one for Riaan too”. Then Michael said something else and I don't know what it was. Perhaps he said something about the green leaves on the page. He was being kind and supportive and smiled at me. (It's important for the Bride to Study the Word and gain the fruits of the Spirit in order to be able to pass on the leaves of healing to the nations.) (Psa. 45:1-17 My heart overfloweth with a goodly matter; I speak the things which I have made touching the king: My tongue is the pen of a ready writer. (The tongue writes the Word upon the heart and the Word is the nature of Christ, which brings the Man-child and Bride to maturity spoken of here.) 2 Thou (Christ in the Man-child) art fairer than the children of men; Grace is poured into thy lips: Therefore God hath blessed thee for ever. 3 Gird thy sword upon thy thigh, O mighty one, Thy glory and thy majesty. 4 And in thy majesty ride on prosperously, Because of truth and meekness and righteousness: And thy right hand shall teach thee terrible things. 5 Thine arrows are sharp; The peoples fall under thee; They are in the heart of the king's enemies. 6 Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: A sceptre of equity is the sceptre of thy kingdom. 7 Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated wickedness: Therefore God, thy God, hath anointed thee With the oil of gladness above thy fellows. 8 All thy garments smell of myrrh, and aloes, and cassia; Out of ivory palaces stringed instruments have made thee glad. 9 Kings daughters are among thy honorable women: At thy right hand doth stand the queen in gold of Ophir. (The Bride) 10 Hearken, O daughter, and consider, and incline thine ear; Forget also thine own people, and thy father's house: 11 So will the king desire thy beauty; For he is thy lord; and reverence thou him. 12 And the daughter of Tyre shall be there with a gift; The rich among the people shall entreat thy favor. 13 The king's daughter within the palace is all glorious: Her clothing is inwrought with gold. 14 She shall be led unto the king in broidered work: The virgins her companions that follow her shall be brought unto thee. 15 With gladness and rejoicing shall they be led: They shall enter into the king's palace. 16 Instead of thy fathers shall be thy children, Whom thou shalt make princes in all the earth. 17 I will make thy name to be remembered in all generations: Therefore shall the peoples give thee thanks for ever and ever.) Father gave 100%, it is Enough Marie Kelton - 5-22-22 (David's notes in red) I had a dream, It was a sunny day, I was parked (in the rest) by Brandy and Amber's house. I was in my car and I was sitting in the passenger seat on the right side. (Letting the Lord drive by obedience to Him) I had my door open (To hear from the Father). Then Don (meaning "world ruler” representing the Father) came up and said to me, “This should be enough" and he handed me $100 in 20 dollar bills. (Meaning what the Father gave was His Son and 100% is taken care of. "This should be enough” so we cant add to what He has done because he delivered us from the curse and provided everything at the cross.) I told him that he didn't have to, but he gave it to me anyway. (Representing the 5 - $20 bills represent Grace because He didn't have to; it was an unearned gift. Wherever we lack it is our fault because of unbelief for He gave it all. Even our rebellion is from unbelief. Est 2:9 &13 And the maiden pleased him, and she obtained kindness of him; and he speedily gave her her things for purification, with her portions, and the seven maidens who were meet to be given her out of the king's house: and he removed her and her maidens to the best place of the house of the women…13 then in this wise came the maiden unto the king: Whatsoever she desired was given her to go with her out of the house of the women unto the king's house.) Then I woke up. I Will Make all thy Border of Precious Stones. Claire Pienaar - 6/8/22 (David's notes in red) First vision: I dreamed I looked like a Bride. (Representing the Bride body.) I saw a hand being put into a glove that looked like knight's armor and when the hand went inside the glove, it looked more like a bag of treasure. Then I realized it was my own hand, and I could feel many different jewels in the bag. (We've had many dreams of the Bride receiving gifts when the Man-child returns.) I had a vision of the jewels in the dream and they were so beautiful and sparkling, in the following colors: blue, red, green, pink, purple, a lighter blue, and pure like a diamond. (The precious stones are given to the Bride. They represent valuable gifts of God's nature which are a protection as armor. “Righteousness delivereth from death.” Isa. 54:11-15 O thou afflicted, tossed with tempest, and not comforted, behold, I will set thy stones in fair colors, and lay thy foundations with sapphires. 12 And I will make thy pinnacles of rubies, and thy gates of carbuncles, and all thy border of precious stones. 13 And all thy children shall be taught of Jehovah; and great shall be the peace of thy children. 14 In righteousness shalt thou be established: thou shalt be far from oppression, for thou shalt not fear; and from terror, for it shall not come near thee. 15 Behold, they may gather together, but not by me: whosoever shall gather together against thee shall fall because of thee.) Second vision, later in the same night: I was cupping my hands, and a fine white salt was being poured into them. I was wearing a beautiful white robe with long draping sleeves. ... There was so much salt it was overflowing from my hands. It felt calming and therapeutic. (The salt of the earth represents preservation. They had no refrigerators back then. Jesus told his disciples, “Ye are the salt of the earth.” The Word in His disciples preserves people from the curse of sin and death.) Provision to Preserve & Build the Kingdom Eve Brast - 11/05/18 (David's notes in Red) I had a dream involving a monopoly game board. It's no coincidence that, as I sat down to write this, an announcement on the radio said that on this day in history, November 5th 1935 Parker Brothers introduced the game of Monopoly to the public. (Eve is representing the Bride of the last Adam, Jesus, in this dream) I dreamed I was sitting in the dining room of our old house on Vanderbilt Rd. in TX., (Vanderbilt is representative of the wealthy Elite's... According to Wikipedia, The Vanderbilts were once the wealthiest family in America. ...The Vanderbilts' prominence lasted until the mid-20th century, when the family's 10 great Fifth Avenue mansions were torn down, and most other Vanderbilt houses were sold or turned into museums in what has been referred to as the "Fall of the House of Vanderbilt”.) Instead of a dining table there was a green card table. (The Deep State elite "house of cards" is falling.) It was dark in the kitchen area but there was a light shining down on the card table. (Father is shining the light on or calling attention to this event) There was an empty Monopoly board game on the table and three men with slicked back, black hair sitting around the Monopoly board with me. (Black hair represents submitted to darkness. The elite behind the DS are playing the game of spiritual monopoly and they are losing due to God plundering them to redistribute their wealth.) ... The only thing each of us had been given was the usual amount of Monopoly money that each player receives. There were no houses or hotels or game tokens to move around the board. (The value or its lack is not in the material possessions but in the funny money itself. Eve was just sitting there resting in the Lord. All things are provided freely in the rest of faith. The monopoly money, now thought to be worthless is the dollar that once supported the DS. As we will see, they are losing the game just like the Vanderbilts.) Suddenly, a pair of dice appeared above the board as if an invisible pair of hands was shaking them. Then the dice were cast onto the board and they came up 3 & 4 equaling 7. (God rolls the dice which are His and He wins the game. He has His own people at the table to receive the gift.) The three men all declared, “7!!!” in a defeated and disgusted tone. (God has defeated the elite who planned to use this currency for their own New World Order.) Then they all got up from the table and took all their Monopoly money and stacked it in a large pile on top of my money and then it all turned into real money as they left the game. (The revaluation of currencies are to come up on a par with the dollar i.e. the dollar will not be worth more than the rest of the world's currency. But as we see here, the dollar will be able to be traded in for the new rainbow currency. Hence those with worthless currencies will find they have become real money on the way to making a one world currency. This is necessary to bring in the mark of the beast. But in the short term this will be used to build the kingdom, as in the temple of God, which is His people. Obama had planned to take the Christians down and then the elite would take all. But Trump, who as Cyrus did, plundered Babylon DS and will, through the RV, contribute vast wealth towards the rebuilding of the Kingdom.) I then realized I'd won, even though I didn't know I'd been playing. (None of us have been playing, but like this, it will be given to us…Eve could represent the corporate Bride). I was so amazed by this. Then I woke up. I looked at my phone and the time was 3:33 am. (I thought of Jeremiah 33:3 because I had asked Father to show me more about His plans and what He is doing. Jer. 33:3 Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and will show thee great things, and difficult, which thou knowest not. (I said months ago I wondered if the elite would be taken down so that they could not be involved in this revaluation and that their currencies value would then be left to be divided to the people of God. Now I know it was a word of knowledge.) I asked Father for a word concerning the Monopoly game and the black haired men (who I believe represents the elite DS) and my finger was on, "Shalt thou reign?” (This text is speaking about Zedekiah, representing the “fat cats” of Christianity, who will not reign in this new kingdom but neither shall the Babylonian DS. Both are members of the Dragon who is cast down in Revelation 12.) Jeremiah 22:15 (in context 12-17) but in the place whither they have led him captive, there shall he die, and he shall see this land no more. 13 Woe unto him that buildeth his house by unrighteousness, and his chambers by injustice; that useth his neighbor's service without wages, and giveth him not his hire; 14 that saith, I will build me a wide house and spacious chambers, and cutteth him out windows; and it is ceiled with cedar, and painted with vermilion. 15 Shalt thou reign, (Those who were sure they would reign by collecting enormous profits from this revaluation have lost it. The peoples monopoly money is now worth much more for the till has the elites money in it and it will be divided as God sees fit.)... 17 But thine eyes and thy heart are not but for thy covetousness, and for shedding innocent blood, and for oppression, and for violence, to do it. I then asked for a word for the men giving me all their money and my finger was on Matthew 6:29. (in context 28-34) And why are ye anxious concerning raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: 29 yet I say unto you, that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 30 But if God doth so clothe the grass of the field, which to-day is, and to-morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith? (When I pasted this underlined text in this article, I accidentally turned the background red but this underlined part was white. I know of no way this could naturally happen and my accident was providential. So believe God to supply for you in the coming wilderness as He did for Israel.) 31 Be not therefore anxious, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? 32 For after all these things do the Gentiles seek; for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. 33 But seek ye first his kingdom, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. 34 Be not therefore anxious for the morrow: for the morrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof. Also this verse came to mind. Pro 13:22 A good man leaveth an inheritance to his children's children; And the wealth of the sinner is laid up for the righteous. The Bridal Chamber Julie Whedbee - 7/3/22 (Link) "My beautiful children, the appointed time has come for My espoused to enter the Bridal Chamber. Your journey has been long and the road most difficult. Enter in My beloved, for I will now close the door to the inner chamber, the most Holy of holies where no thing defiled may enter in. In displaying the glorified life while living the crucified one, you have carried My torch of love, the love that burns deeply from within My heart for all My creation. You have emptied self and its desires in order that only I may enter in, fashioning your vessels into sharply refined instruments through which I manifest My presence in this realm. My torch has been the Keeper of your soul; it has been a light in the darkness; it has been your shelter through the storms of this journey. The burning love of My heart has carried you when you were too weak to even lift your head, and it has been the healing balm for your wounds. You have given me everything that has ever been closest to your heart, and in turn, I have given you My heart. There is nothing that compares to this gift! You have allowed Me to make My home in your heart, to tabernacle with you, and you have been given an open door and the key to freely enter the holiest of places in Me. Our journey has been one of great challenges and great obstacles, but together, We have overcome them all. The gift that you possess has been a beacon of hope to many, a breath of air in the dark places of this life, but now, I will do a new thing with you. I will always share what I am about to do with those I love, and I tell you this, this chapter of your journey will now end. I have called each one of you, and I know you by the name I have given you, a name that is completely unique from all others, a name that embodies Our journey together. I have fashioned you for My purposes and your name has been engraved on My hand, and you are sealed. You who have overcome will find your name in My Book of Remembrance. You wear My signet ring for you are ordained to rule and reign, fulfilling all My purpose for you. It is My robe you wear, dipped in the blood of My sacrifice that has given you the victory over all things, for I have purchased this for My espoused. You have not questioned the cup you have been given to drink, but rather eagerly drunk of its contents, not questioning the will of your Creator in order that My will only is done in and through you on earth as it is in Heaven, My Kingdom and your home. You have separated yourself from all that is impure and sought to be holy in all manner of things pertaining to this existence. Your obedience has been costly in this realm, but what good is it if a man gains all in this world only to lose his soul for eternity? This life is only a vapor, but your time here since being born again in Me has been served well. You will hear the long awaited words, "Well done My good and faithful servant, enter into the joy of the Lord," for My reward is with Me to give unto you according to your righteous deeds. Your treasure is in Me and My treasure is knowing you have given all of you in complete surrender and obedience. You who have overcome will inherit My Kingdom as My sons and My daughters. As I close the door to the past and Our journey thus far, I give you My complete peace, as you let go of all that has been your reality here. This will not be of any matter to you now, for I am doing a new thing. You would not even believe it if I told you beforehand. The cares of this life will leave you, and the attachments will be taken away. All that remains for you now is My love for you, and for those yet to come into the fold. What once was, will now be no longer. It is not a time to mourn anymore, for the former things are passing away. Rejoice in that Our time has come! The past is done, and you are now entering the realm of timelessness, the realm of Oneness with your Creator, He who is outside of time, outside of the dimensions that I will now release you from. Enter in My loves, enter fully in and immerse yourselves in My pure essence. Your garment of righteousness is the fine linen I have prepared for you, that which has been weaved so intricately during your journey into intimacy with Me. The garment for you will radiate My glory from within, as We will consummate Our union in Oneness for all eternity. Each thread of your garment represents a moment where you overcame, a moment during your time here when you chose Me above all else. Each thread of this garment pulses with the glorified light that I used when I formed you so beautifully in your mother's womb. Your radiance will be like a precious jewel. Each thread that I weave anchors the purity of Our relationship together, every fiber harmonizing with the other, creating the tapestry that is you made in the image of Me. The very name of who I AM is encoded inside each fiber of you, for you are Mine. Each thread of your garment will now sing of My glory, a glory I give to no other. The frequency you have formerly known will be raised now to come back into alignment with perfection. A pure and spotless garment I have created for each of you, woven from My perfect love. You are My treasured ones, you are My jewels. Come My beloved espoused into the bridal chamber. Come and meet your King, YAHUSHUA."
