    Just had this pop up on YouTube, and wanted to share it in light of what is going on right now, and the message given to this woman about trusting in the Providence of God.

    For those that are truly in Christ Jesus, Fear not for what is coming in the wind, for it will not come near your tents(abodes).

    One's first clue, amongst many, that this girl is nothing but an immature foolish little child is when she said that '...God has a sense of humour, just cracks me up...'.

    You speak of what you do not know DNB.....you judge by appearances and arrive at flawed conclusions.

    Didn't Jesus say 'out of the mouth of babes he (God) has perfected praise'

    ......and yes, God does have a sense of humour. We are made in his image and part of that package is a sense of humour.

    No, sorry QT, you need to stop buying into nonsense and showing more reverence for God, and the austerity of both His character and His Word.
    ...we are created in His image, yes, does that mean that just because we're are cruel to another that, that is also part of the package? You justified nothing in your last statement.
    Her remark about God answering her prayer, exactly as she requested, was the give-away - what is so humorous about that? Who do you know that can just ask God for anything that they want, anytime, and He answers them - not me, for sure! That requires the utmost faith and humility, and here she is, casual and jovial, indirectly talking about how close her relationship with God is, and then describing His character as humorous. She's the only joke around here.

    Do you think for one second that I even had to watch the rest of the clip, to know how ambiguous, repetitive and pathetic her revelation was?

    Wonderful
    job of interpretation. Nice work. The only thing she didn't totally pick up on yet is that it is only those who get in the Presence of God who will be protected. Those who neglect to will be at the mercy of the storm, especially emotionally and psychologically.

    Time will tell, but it bears witness. Thanks for posting.

    You're losing it HIH. You used to be rather sound and rational, but your constant approval and indulgence of this self-evident nonsense is just shameful.
    All this prophecy for what? What in the world did she say that the entire bible-reading world didn't already know, ...except for maybe God having a 'sense of humour' when He answers prayers?

    Actually, this is pointing to a decision we will all have to make as the body of Christ, To fight the coming storm by our own strength and will or to trust in the providence of God. Some here think we must fight politically the coming beast system by earthly means with carnal weapons in the political arena But scripture says "who can fight against the beast" (Revelation 13:4) Well, if you put man of any kind in your answer you will fall, and many are and do whether that is Trump or some other king, or You can answer that with Christ and Trust fully in his providence. Worldly leaders will fail you. Your own strength and will is going to fail you, Only Christ Jesus will remain faithful And through Him we will overcome.

    Ummmmmmm, she did see the storm, she did look for shelter, she did consult with those around her, she did see the "tent", she did encourage others to quickly seek shelter, and she did enter the shelter.

    It called being PRO-ACTIVE, rather than PASSIVE. And so Luke 22:36 requires that we be PRO-ACTIVE, -- in contrast to Luke 22:35 which is PASSIVE.

    I agree, of course. That's my point. I, and billions of other wise Christians, already knew that. Do you know how (rhetorical), because it was already written in the Bible, as you showed.
    Thus, the little girl, with her fanciful imagination, just regurgitated what she already had heard in her Sunday School classes.
    You see, David, any of us can do the exact same thing - quote from the Book of Psalms or Proverbs, or Revelation, and claim it as prophecy.
    Why are people so quick and credulous to embrace such apparent frivolity? It's like I said, it gives license to everyone else to start endowing themselves with the gift of prophecy, announcing to all how blessed that they are.

    The problem is a large segment of the church is learning to trust in government and human means for their protection. I think it is a timely word from the Holy Spirit to the church. She may be "simple" in her understanding, but there is a deep spiritual truth for discernment in this if you can see it.

    A storm is coming, what can we do to protect ourselves by our own means and physical preparation? Not much, but we have to make a conscious decision to Tabernacle with God, and not face the storm with fear, for we are not given the spirit of fear but of power, love and a sound mind. (2 Timothy 1:7)

    All of us see the storm coming, we all know victory is in Christ Jesus, yet we are searching for a "concrete" shelter, and not a Spiritual one. There are no concrete shelters around to face the storm. Sure this is simple, But it need not be complicated to be profound. Your looking for a panacea for the storm she is giving you a shelter from the storm, the storm is unavoidable. A tent is not the best shelter in a storm to the logical human mind, (the carnal mind) But God is there, In His presence we will overcome. The greatest truths are simple, perhaps the following hymn will help you see this...

    1. The Lord’s our Rock, in Him we hide,
      A Shelter in the time of storm;
      Secure whatever ill betide,
      A Shelter in the time of storm.
      • Refrain:
        Oh, Jesus is a Rock in a weary land,
        A weary land, a weary land;
        Oh, Jesus is a Rock in a weary land,
        A Shelter in the time of storm.
    2. A shade by day, defense by night,
      A Shelter in the time of storm;
      No fears alarm, no foes afright,
      A Shelter in the time of storm.
    3. The raging storms may round us beat,
      A Shelter in the time of storm;
      We’ll never leave our safe Retreat,
      A Shelter in the time of storm.
    4. O Rock divine, O Refuge dear,
      A Shelter in the time of storm;
      Be Thou our Helper ever near,
      A Shelter in the time of storm.

    Yet that shelter is not concrete, Physical, But rather Spiritual. Which is the point I have been making with you. Your sword and your purse will not save you from the storm, you need to be proactive in the Spiritual realm, not in the material realm for what is coming. She illustrates this simply and profoundly in this dream....
    Thanks for commenting, as I posted it for you primarily, and now you have heard:) Do You understand?

    Re:
    Lke 22:35 And he said to them, “When I sent you out with no purse or bag or sandals, did you lack anything?” They said, “Nothing.” 36 He said to them, But now, let him who has a purse take it, and likewise a bag. And let him who has no sword sell his mantle and buy one.

    Ummmmmmm, I didn't write the Book of Luke. -- Did you intend to cite "GOD's" sword and "GOD's" purse? -- And don't forget "GOD'S" bag! :)


    Perhaps you missed that LUKE authored this THIRD of FOUR Gospels. :)

    Thanks for posting this video, David H.
    Uplifting message which we all need these difficult times.
    Wished we saw more if these and never mind the negative comments.

    I fully believe if a child of His is fully submitted and full of faith, God's will will have pre-emenance. But we must be careful to not pre-program what that will looks like. All it takes is an afternoon browsing Fox's Book of Martyrs to realize that throughout history, saints whose walks would make mine pale in comparison found that His provision was to keep them faithful without recanting unto death, some most appalling and horrifying.

    Think of Stephen. Stoned for his bold testimony. Under Nero's reign of terror, entire families of Christians were killed by lions for entertainment. As a matter of fact, every single apostle except John was put to death for his testimony. John, the lone exception, was simply boiled in oil and banished to live alone on the isle of Patmos.Did God provide for each one of them? Absolutely.

    Can God miraculously deliver us from all the devil throws at us? Yes. But history has proven that the real safety is having our hearts kept even if our bodies have to pay the ultimate sacrifice.

    This misunderstanding of God's provision of safety has had its effect even today with Covid killing thousands. Many saints have been led to believe that somehow, because we are His children, there is no way we can be infected. I find it strange that men will believe for divine deliverance from sickness, and yet fight tooth and nail to defend their stance that no man can actually be kept from committing sin.

    Here is the ultimate "harbor of safety" for any who truly wants to be kept by the power of God through faith. This body is but our temporary home. There are no guarantees we will all die of old age at 102 in our sleep. But there are multitudes of promises from our God that He has provided a way to walk in victory over all satan throws at our spirit man.

    Let us not fear what comes. If we truly want to please our God, it is simply to trust Him, no matter what comes. Faith pleases God more than any action we might take.

    blessings,

    Gids

    If the Church believes that we're not co-participants in our SAFETY, then maybe we can safely ignore the INSTRUCTIONS in Lke 22:36 and Rev. 18:4.

    In fact, I'd encourage EVERYONE WITH FAITH to ignore Scripture; a Rattlesnake; a Mother bear; or staying dry under a tall tree during a Lightning storm. -- GOD is the "ultimate harbor of safety", so go ahead and tempt GOD and see if HE protects you.


    ... and if you happen to have a highway-motorcycle somewhere in the 1,000cc range, (-- and no Harley's, they're too pretentious --), could you please include me in your will?

    You remind me of me 15 years ago. Hard, harsh in judgment, lacking compassion, angry, serving a hard God and doing my best to make sure that everyone else had to toe the line as well. Well intentioned but with a heart still chained to sins that I had a love/hate relationship with.

    I hated myself, was angry at God for not changing me (or for not letting others see how wise I was, lol). There is hope, dear brother, when we finally get to the point we can admit we do not possess (mirror) what we profess. God is patient and longsuffering with all of us, myself at the head of the list, and in these last days, we as His church are about be transformed from a barren plain to a fruitful vine.

    blessings to you, DNB

    Jesus became a man, just like us, so that HE could be our example, just like HIM. And where HE had direct communication with GOD, so too EVERY CHRISTIAN who has faith.

    But some Christians don't have faith, and so they will not receive. -- You can't receive what you won't accept. :)

    I accept a man's testimony about his communication with God, when it brings the utmost glory to God, as Jesus irrefutably and unequivocally did.
    Even I could make a prophecy just like the girls, straight from the top of my head.
