On October 28th I had a vision. In this vision the Holy Spirit was hovering above my head. He was speaking in an audible voice. The vision began with Him addressing some personal things and also saying a number of times that it is right to give Him Thanks and Praise.
Then He asked me to prophesy to the people who attend Christ the Rock Community Church in a nearby city. He told me that the prophecies and attendant difficulty that I have been carrying for over five years now were for the people who attend CTR. He asked me to remember that and love them well as I prophesy.
Then He asked me to deliver the Word in three parts, three days apart from each other.
The first one (which was posted on Oct 31, 2007) is as follows:
A strong eagle with many feathers and deep color came to the city. It broke off a branch from the top of a very tall tree and planted the shoot in a city with much commerce. The eagle took seed from the area and planted that in fertile soil. He planted it like a willow tree near water. It sprouted and became a low vine. The branches turned toward him, but it’s roots stayed under it. So it became a vine and produced leafy branches.But there was another powerful eagle full of beautiful feathers. The vine now sent out it’s roots toward him. It also sent out it’s branches to him for water.The vine had been planted in good soil by abundant water so that it would produce branches, bear fruit and become a marvelous vine.
The second one (which was posted on Nov 3, 2007) is as follows:
“Say, ‘Thus says the Lord GOD, “Will it thrive? Will he not pull up its roots and cut off its fruit, so that it withers–so that all its sprouting leaves wither? And neither by great strength nor by many people can it be raised from its roots again.“Behold, though it is planted, will it thrive? Will it not completely wither as soon as the east wind strikes it–wither on the beds where it grew?”‘”Moreover, the word of the LORD came to me, saying,”Say now to the rebellious house, ‘Do you not know what these things mean?’ Say, ‘Behold, the king of Babylon came to Jerusalem, took its king and princes and brought them to him in Babylon.‘He took one of the royal family and made a covenant with him, putting him under oath He also took away the mighty of the land, that the kingdom might be in subjection, not exalting itself, but keeping his covenant that it might continue.‘But he rebelled against him by sending his envoys to Egypt that they might give him horses and many troops Will he succeed? Will he who does such things escape? Can he indeed break the covenant and escape?
The third and final part (which was posted on Nov 6, 2007) is as follows:
‘Pharaoh with his mighty army and great company will not help him in the war, when they cast up ramps and build siege walls to cut off many lives. ’Now he despised the oath by breaking the covenant, and behold, he pledged his allegiance, yet did all these things; he shall not escape.’”Therefore, thus says the Lord GOD, “As I live, surely My oath which he despised and My covenant which he broke, I will inflict on his head.”I will spread My net over him, and he will be caught in My snare Then I will bring him to Babylon and enter into judgment with him there regarding the unfaithful act which he has committed against Me.”All the choice men in all his troops will fall by the sword, and the survivors will be scattered to every wind; and you will know that I, the LORD, have spoken.”Thus says the Lord GOD, “I will also take a sprig from the lofty top of the cedar and set it out; I will pluck from the topmost of its young twigs a tender one and I will plant it on a high and lofty mountain.
”On the high mountain of Israel I will plant it, that it may bring forth boughs and bear fruit and become a stately cedar. And birds of every kind will nest under it; they will nest in the shade of its branches.
”All the trees of the field will know that I am the LORD; I bring down the high tree, exalt the low tree, dry up the green tree and make the dry tree flourish. I am the LORD; I have spoken, and I will perform it.”
