You know how it is said He prayed in the night..(as the others slept) He prayed to His Father for hours in the evening?  I was thinking of that ..then this vision went through me as I wanted to console Him or just keep Him loving company from a poor soul He died for:

So here I am from 2017 ( already knowing He would die for us and redeem us…) I see Him in a sort of clearing away from the others following Him – I did not see them asleep.  But there was our Beloved (and this is for all ) kneeling down on the cold ground – I knew somehow it would be colder then, and when I was with Him there praying, very respectfully I walked slowly (on His left side – )  I had on a long sort of white or soft ecru dress to my ankles I would say..younger than I am – my hair was up but I was carrying a white colored blanket for it was cold (I sensed) and I walked over softly while He was praying to His Father.  He did not see me or know I was there (from our time..yeesh)
I was standing (this is all so clear) as I had walked over to Him and was slightly bending down and He turned gently and looked up at me and I said…very softly…I don’t want to disturb You, (as He was in deep prayer) but if you would want me to, would you like me to pray with You?  He looked up at me, and seeing He was feeling the cold too, I put the white blanket over His shoulders and I knelt next to Him – again as I said- on His left.  Then I put the other part of this blanket over my shoulders and we knelt side by side – He put His arm about my waist and I put my right arm about His waist, as the blanket covered us both nicely that way… then we put our free hands together and our fingers entwined..as we just looked at each other with much tenderness… and He put His face next to mine…(so sweet and tender) – and we prayed as that.  Like almost two children praying to our Father.  It was so sweet.  He never said a word and I just assume from this vision we just continued to pray together to the Father, and He would now and then just give me a little kiss on the cheek while we knelt that way( I know for a time.  ) Yet this vision was not long.   I just wanted to be with Him in this clearing to pray with Him and not leave Him alone.  And He was cold.
So that is how this came to me in my spirit.  We are able to in spirit use our imagination to be with Him or anyone, even His Mother Mary or anyone…in their time with Him – He takes it FOR REAL.  Since time is always present to Him.  Lovely!  And for all.
 I pray this encourages others to “visit” Him..esp. in the Garden of Olives where He suffered so much!  It is like when you were with Him in the prison.  This was sort of the same thing, except before His Passion – still teaching and healing I assume, and traveling with His Apostles +
Oh I remember something..how could I forget, dear – there was a prayer I said while kneeling….( one remembers if I visited Him from our time…I could say such a  prayer that would only make sense to Jesus and His Father, so I felt that was unique.)
Knowing while I was by His side like that in this field or clearing, that He was to die for us, and in 2017 I knew this already, my prayer was different perhaps, indeed, but not out of place.  I composed this prayer in my heart while with Him and said the following. Not long, but from my heart.
He just looked tenderly at me while we knelt there and I said to the Father:
Father, I thank You for Your Son Jesus who shed His Blood for us sinners, redeeming us and saving us….I knew it was a prayer He would understand fully…um…”even if it was in the future” and one the Father would accept since I was “visiting” Jesus in this time from “our time”  He sees….all at once +
So this is my account of what transpired, and again, anyone . . . can do this.  This just flowed through me and He was so real and it was so loving being there in “spirit” hoping I was some kind of consolation, even if in a small way.

Sister, thank you Sooooooooo much for sharing these experiences with us!!! What an encouragement for all of us! My devotional card I just pulled this morning after reading your blog post is from “Jesus Calling” and said: “No one will be able to stand up against you all the days of your life. As I was with Moses, so I will be with you; I will never leave you nor forsake you.” Joshua 1:5

“Oh how I love Jesus oh how I love Jesus oh how I love Jesus because He first loved me.”

Don’t you love how Jesus Christ is with us always and so lovingly allows us to experience His manifest presence in our lives? These are the most precious moments for me and often look forward to them with a lot of excitement. Today I share a few of the moments that I have had with Him.

The first time I encountered Jesus Christ was a peculiar time. I say this because I was very young around 10 years and I had never had the message of salvation before. Moreover no one in our family was born again. In this encounter we were like in a church and everyone was in white robes. My mind immediately told me we were in heaven. Jesus Christ was walking along the path greeting people…

On a Mountaintop

4d77d2d75c054e517789b251f7f25923

After He had sent the crowds away, He went up on the mountain by Himself to pray; and when it was evening, He was there alone.  (Matthew 14:23)

Jesus, our Lord and King in exile would often go to a mountaintop or high place to pray to the Father after a long day of ministering to the people,  or even in the early hours of the morning before others were awake.

It was on a mountaintop where Jesus gave us the Beatitudes,   the higher messages of the Kingdom, to those who were willing  to walk up the hillside with Him after a long day with the multitudes  below.   (Isaiah 52:7  How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of Him Who brings good tidings, who publishes peace, Who brings good tidings of good , Who publishes Salvation.”)

I can visualize Jesus climbing down from a hillside after an early morning praying with His Father in Heaven.. His face aglow with the Holy Spirit.,  so noticeable to His disciples that they were compelled to ask Him to teach them to pray.  And during the event we call “The Transfiguration”, it was  on a mountaintop that Jesus was literally transfigured with Divine Light before three of His disciples.

With this Transfiguration the disciples witnessed Jesus as the third Person of the Trinity with their own visible eyes.  They would soon have the opportunity to witness Him transfigured again with spiritual eyes.     Earthly eyes would not notice His brightness this time.   Only all of  Heaven and those on Earth with spiritual eyes to see, for this next mountaintop would be Golgotha.     At Golgotha,  He offered Himself in His most greatest prayer of all for mankind and to the Father.  He offered Himself and  His torment of dying by crucifixion as a Living Prayer on that cross- the cross on the mountaintop of Golgotha.

At that dark hour on Earth,  Heaven saw the greatest of Lights beaming on Earth’s soil below, and that Light was and is Jesus in His offering of Love for all… on a mountaintop♥

“… and there I Am, waiting for you right in the midst of the battle.  In the very place where I want your love:  beyond and above all things.  Above all things- that is where I am.  Rise to meet Me always..”   (Jesus to Gabrielle Bossis., recorded in “He and I”)


“You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden; nor does anyone light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on the lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. “Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven.”    (Matthew 5:14-16)

The Song of Solomon and Jesus

“I adjure you, O daughters of Jerusalem, if you find my beloved, that you tell him I am sick with love.”  Song of Solomon 5:8

When I think of the moment when Mary of Magdala was searching for Jesus but couldn’t find Him after He had resurrected from death, I am reminded of the Shulamite woman in the Song of Solomon searching for her Beloved.  ”

Jesus let Himself be found by Mary because she sought Him with all of her heart… just as the Lord told Isreal centuries earlier in Jeremiah 29:13:     ” You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.”

Prior to this, sad to say,  Jesus’s closest disciples portrayed the Shulamite woman in the Song of Solomon when  her Beloved knocked on her door from the trials and dew of the night,   and she failed to open the door to Him in time.

(“I was asleep but my heart was awake. A Voice! My Beloved was knocking:  “Open to Me , My sister, My darling, My dove, My perfect one!  For My head is drenched with dew;  My locks with the damp of the night”)“I have taken off my dress, How can I put it on again? I have washed my feet, How can I dirty them again?)

When she did open to Him,  He had already gone., thus beginning her search for Him.

(“I opened to my beloved, but my beloved had turned and gone. My soul failed me when he spoke. I sought him, but found him not; I called him, but he gave no answer.” Song of Sol. 5:6)

Jesus , finding His disciples asleep, told Peter:    “So, could you not watch with me one hour?  (Matthew 26:40)   and “The spirit is willing but the flesh is weak”.

Your first day in Heaven…

I Want to See God

My love lifts up his voice,
he says to me,
“Come then, my beloved, my lovely one, come….”  (Song of Songs 2:10)

I love when God surprises me!

On the way home from running errands, I stopped by a church to visit Jesus in the Most Blessed Sacrament.  I was alone except for the organist, and a vocalist who were seated at the organ and whispering.

Kneeling, I rested my head on my arms, hoping not to be distracted by the musicians. Suddenly, the organist launched into the the majestic tones of Felix Mendelssohn’s Wedding March.  How grand it sounded, as music poured out of the huge pipe organ, filling every nook and cranny of the empty church.

I looked up toward the aisle and imagined a bride, in her beautiful wedding gown, beginning her walk on her father’s arm.  What a glorious celebration a wedding is, and the bride…

Jesus told Judas and the disciples who criticized Mary of Bethany’s act of love that her anointing Him with oil before His burial would be spoken about her for generations to come..    and this is one of many “tellings” of her beautiful act.

Mary paid a fortune to purchase expensive nard from the perfume salesperson ..three hundred denarii which was equal to three day’s  wages.  For her, Jesus was worth the price to pay.. and she was all but constrained for that special moment when she could show her love toward Him.. by anointing His head with oil.   The Psalms say, “He anoints my head with oil,. my cup runneth over.    How prophetic this very verse of David was of Jesus at that moment!

Breaking the flask, she crept up behind Him and poured the oil over His head.. it ran over His hair onto His robes, and body.. and you can imagine how utterly touched in His heart our Lord was – looking at her with eyes of love.     “Don’t bother her,  He said to Judas and the disciples, as He remained looking into her eyes.  She has anointed my body for burial.  the poor you will have with you always, but you will not always have Me.”

At that moment, there was an air of silence.   John , watching this scene, kept all of what occurred in His heart the remainder of his life.  The scent of nard permeated the air, and no doubt remained on Jesus’s robes until the day they stripped Him of all His garments to cast lots for them.

What is striking to me is that Mary paid for Jesus.. was willing to pay the PRICE for Jesus Ten times Thirty.. a fortune of great price in that era.    Judas , who scorned Mary’s act SOLD Jesus for only thirty pieces of silver.. the price of purchasing a slave.. while Mary purchased Him beforehand with three hundred denarii..    her act of love atoned for Judas’s act of hate.   It was not forgotten by Jesus and one of the extremely rare moments of genuine affection He received in His exile on this Earth..

This past week was my turn to houseclean our church ..After working overtime from my job, I drove into our church’s parking lot to unlock the doors and begin vaccuming the floors.   Our church puts out an antique manger scene near the side entrance.  The figures of Mary, Joseph , Baby Jesus and one little lamb are almost life size and illuminated from within by light bulbs..  The manger is a wooden crèche covering the figures with strewn hay placed under the figure of baby Jesus .     A life size figure of Jesus as an adult is also placed on the side..    The entire display is so simple and humble..   and it reminds me of just how simple and humble our Lord’s earthly parents truly were..and how simple and pure He is Whom has emptied Himself and made Himself of no reputation..    and the poverty in which He had been born into.

I think it was the hay that really affected me..  the realization that our Lord was born in a feeding trough where animals of labor ate from.,  and where they rested for the night on hay.   How far removed are our churches of today and the real poverty and simplicity our Lord lived from first entering this World to the day He was executed from this World.   He was as Jonah in the belly of the whale..   the Whale representing this dark World which could not contain Him any longer, so it “spat Him out” of it’s belly.

When I looked at the life size figure of adult Jesus placed at the edge of this humble manger scene,  I saw a Jesus with a simply woven garment.. possibly patched up in spots  where daily use wore holes in the cloth.   Red sand dust showing near the hem of His garment where He walked the wilderness roads from village to village.. about His Father’s business.  Worn sandals that revealed great use.  I touched the shoulder of His life size figurine.. His shoulder ..  and I felt as though I was touching the shoulder of a homeless man.   Would I be offended in Him., in His poverty?  Or would I embrace my Lord, who out of total love, emptied Himself to identify with the poorest of the poor.

Our Lord, Emmanuel .. God with Us,  came down to our World from the Ivory palaces and streets of Gold, to sleep on earth’s hay and live with beast-like mankind.. that we would follow His Light and find the way back to the Father– His Father and through Him, now ours once again.♥

It is not a Silent Night

In our Modern Age’s towns,

With the tinsel on the trees,

Twinkle lights hung all around;

 

Plastic Santas in the yards,

Christmas store sales every year,

Buying, selling, marrying, drinking

Mankind’s “Holiday cup of cheer”;

 

Drunk with feasting the people sleep,

With their Holiday lights so bright

Unknown to them within their slumber,

*God’s stars shine in the night;

 

The kids have cookies set aside

For Santa Claus to snack on,

And every television’s on

With Holiday distraction,

 

But the Christ Child waits out on the streets,

For His head a place to lay,

Just as His parents long ago

Had sought a place to stay;

 

For there wasn’t room at Mankind’s “Inn”,

And yet again – no room for Him,

Except in silent hearts who pray

For Jesus Christ, their hearts to stay.♥♥♥
