To wrap up the year I've been led to share one of the coolest encounters with God I've ever had. It was the result of diligently asking the Father if there was any way at all He could reveal Himself to me in a manner allowing me to truly "hug" Him. Yeah, I know - what a request! But it was made with a heart knowing our God can do anything, and also with a heart knowing His heart for me. My very desire to have such an experience was birthed by Him and, in this stunning encounter, He came as close as He possibly could to fulfilling it for me despite my connections to the flesh.
Did He hug my flesh? ABSOLUTELY NOT - it would have vaporized me. In cases like these, He must deal only with our spirit man; but because of my needing to return to a fleshly body, there was only so much He could do and so far He could go with me in this meeting. Believe me, my friends, I gratefully accepted and received it all!
When Jesus says, "Ask, and you shall receive..." He isn't kidding! I pray you enjoy and are singularly blessed by this encounter in vision. Amen.
God's Vision to me of:
"The Heart of Abba"
July 5, 2007
The Lord told me He wanted to take me someplace and, when I laid down to worship, I saw Him reach His hands into my palms, down through my forearms to my elbows to 'draw out' my spirit man. My palms had been radiating in hot-pink light before that. Each time I lifted my hands to God, I saw the powerful, holy, pink glow around them.
I was worshiping the Lord in my bedroom and, suddenly, we were running through a huge field of waist-high, white flowers at what looked like sunset. Jesus was wearing a light white, wispy, translucent robe that gathered around His waist.
I ran ahead of Him a little and flew into a forward flip amid the flowers. The atmosphere was joyful and the sky burned in striking colors. After the playful flip, I ran back into the Lord's arms and kissed Him lovingly. He embraced me and we both turned to see Abba on the horizon before us. His head and flowing hair were illuminated and filled the inner atmosphere of field and flowers. (Holy Spirit told me Abba's flowing hair was indicative of intimacy and His total knowing of us.)
Through 'kissing' Christ, I had stepped further into a realm of intimacy with the Father. Abba's head looked like the sun fully illuminated, and His hair flowed out from it like a river, in multiple colors.
Then, out of the brilliance of that image, He walked! Yes, Abba walked out of the light of His own image and power through the field of waist-high flowers, toward us. He wore a pale orange gown (which later appeared peach) as He walked slowly toward me. Holy Spirit illumined the atmosphere and Abba glowed in the refining fire emanating from His being.
Jesus stood to my right and, when I realized it was Abba walking toward me, I dashed into His arms, not wanting to lose an instant of this thrilling opportunity! Abba enveloped me. Though we were secure in our embrace, I could see His Face as He held me - He cried tears of JOY. Even as He embraced me, I could see His eyes. I saw the well of His tears cupping those gorgeous emerald-green eyes, and I knew it was the face and hands and arms of My Beloved Father embracing me by His power (just as I had prayed)!
Then, as His embrace grew stronger, I felt His heart surround me and permeate me with fire. Suddenly, I wasn't flesh anymore - I became Light! My entire body changed into yellow beams and streaks of light, right in His arms!
Completely in the Spirit as a spirit, I went directly to Abba's Throne, upon which He was no longer a man in appearance, but El Shaddai - The Double-Breasted One; One Who Binds Himself with an Oath.
The brightness around His Throne was so intense, even my spirit man could barely see Him. All was light, but through that light I saw Him crowned and glorious, as Total Source and Supply, and in Royal, flowing robes that looked like rivers of ivory and vanilla and pearl - beaming and radiating power over His entire Being like translucent, shimmering, chiffon. I knelt to put my head on His lap and saw a river of mint-green girding His hips and upper thighs. I splashed my head into it and was healed... cleansed of all ailment.
The Benevolent Humility of Abba is astounding, as I heard Him say, "That is the best I can do for you now, beloved, while you are still connected to the flesh and must continue your assignment..."
Then, through Holy Spirit, I heard Him add, "but there will come a day... when you will not die, when nothing tied to you will die... when ALL will be Life. Then I will never let go, beloved, and your course will be as Mine; your flow will be as My Flow, with no beginning or end. I promise."
