LION OF ZION 19
"THE HOLY OF HOLIES"
By Rosie Lovejoy
February 13, 2005
Like all the other Lion of Zion visions, this took place in the church I attend during a very, very anointed worship service. The preceding week had been consumed with my job, and I had spent little time with the LORD. I was burnt out, frazzled, and yearning for HIS presence to set things right within me. Internally I was weeping and repenting, begging to have help with how I spend my time and attention. I was asking how I can stay in integrity with all my clients, be attentive to their needs, and still keep my attention and time focused on my Savior.
And so the sweet vision began…
I saw a large cross of blinding white light, pulsating, glowing, beautiful….
And then I saw the ARK OF THE COVENANT, golden and glimmering, with flashing rainbows of light all about it. It was blinding. It felt thunderous, although I did not hear a thing.
I immediately threw myself on the floor, prostrate before it. I begged the LORD to put a coal to my mouth so that I wouldn't say anything to transgress this HOLY place. And then I heard the familiar voice of my Savior, speaking gently yet firmly.
"THERE ARE STORM CLOUDS ON THE HORIZON."
I continued lying face down in front of the ARK, wondering how anything could permeate this HOLY place. And then I found myself wondering why HE was telling me something HE has told me so many times before. And why here?
And then I realized that there might be a raging storm outside, yet here in the HOLY OF HOLIES there was nothing but HIS indescribable presence. There was about this place a feel unlike any I have experienced.…
And then I found myself dressed in white dancing with YESHUA in front of the ARK to Heavenly music, melting in HIS presence of love.
HE spoke to me,
"INVITE YOUR BROTHERS AND SISTERS INTO MY LIGHT AND MY LOVE, WHERE THE WORLD EVAPORATES AND IS STILL."
And then I was on my face again before the HOLY OF HOLIES, still dressed in a white dress. I was nearly bursting with a thousand emotions. And then a still, sweet presence quietly enfolded me. I peeked up and reclining beside me was my LION, THE LION OF ZION, the love of my life.
"THIS IS THE ONLY PLACE YOU WANT TO BE…IN THE HOLY OF HOLIES. I WILL TEACH YOU HOW TO BE IN THIS PLACE AS YOU WORK AND GO ABOUT YOUR DAY. I WILL TEACH YOU HOW TO STAY IN MY VERY PRESENCE IN THE HOLY OF HOLIES. THIS IS WHERE YOU WANT TO BE ALWAYS. I WILL TEACH YOU."
The vision faded away, and the indescribable feeling of that special place remained with me as the pastor spoke, the church dismissed and I drove home.
LION OF ZION # 20
ABIDING IN THE HOLY OF HOLIES
PRESCHOOL LESSON #1
FEBRUARY 18, 2005
By Rosie Lovejoy
Once again, a small group of worshiping warriors were gathered for an evening of abandoned Praise and Worship. About an hour into our evening I heard the voice of my SAVIOR. HE told me to sit down as HE had a lesson for me about how to abide in the HOLY OF HOLIES throughout the day. “Oh WOW! I thought, here comes Lesson 101 on how to stay in the HOLY OF HOLIES, 24 - 7.”
HE firmly corrected me, “THIS IS NOT LESSON 101.
THAT IMPLIES THAT YOU ARE IN COLLEGE AND HAVE AN ADVANCED STATE OF LEARNING. THIS IS PRESCHOOL. THIS IS BEFORE KINDERGARTEN.
THIS IS THE VERY FIRST STEP TO LEARNING HOW TO ABIDE IN THE HOLY OF HOLIES ALL THE TIME. THIS IS THE FIRST STEP IN ANSWERING YOUR REQUEST.”
I sat down, much humbled, and began to write what HE had to say.
1.“ALWAYS REMEMBER THROUGHOUT YOUR DAY: WHO CREATED YOU,
WHO SUSTAINS YOU, AND WHO CAN CALL YOU HOME AT A MOMENT’S NOTICE.”
“ I AM YAHWEH your God who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. You shall have no other Gods before me.” Ex. 20: 1-2
“Hear oh Israel: YAHWEH our God, YAHWEH is one! You shall love YAHWEH your God with all your hearts, with all your soul, with and with all your strength.” Deut. 6:4
2.“PRAY AND SING IN TONGUES AS OFTEN AS YOU CAN.
YOU WILL BYPASS THAT VERY ANALYTICAL MIND OF YOURS. ANGELS JOIN YOU WHEN YOU PRAY AND SING IN THEIR LANGUAGE.”
“Therefore do not be unwise, but understand what the will of the Lord is. And do not drink with wine, in which is dissipation; but be filled with the Spirit, speaking to one another in psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord, giving thanks always, for all things to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ (YESHUA), submitting to one another in the fear of God.”
Eph. 5: 17-21
“Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus (YESHUA) for you.” 1 Thes. 5:16-18
3.“AND OF COURSE YOU KNOW THE NEXT ONE. WORSHIP. ABANDONED, UNDIGNIFIED, UNRELIGIOUS WORSHIP AND PRAISE. OFTEN!”
“Make a joyful shout to YAHWEH all you lands!
Serve YAHWEH with gladness: come into HIS presence with singing…
Enter into HIS gates with thanksgiving, and into HIS courts with praise.” Ps. 100: 1-2, 4
4.“MY WORD. EAT IT! FOR IT IS FOOD FOR YOU.
EAT IT! EAT IT! EAT IT!
I SHALL REVEAL MYSTERIES AS YOU EAT MY LIVING WORD.”
“If you abide in MY word, you are my disciples indeed. And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall set you free.” John 8: 31-32
“For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.” Heb. 4:12
5.“OBEDIENCE TO MY INNER PROMPTINGS! OBEDIENCE TO MY WORD!
NOT HALF-HEARTED OBEDIENCE!”
“If you love ME, keep MY commandments.” John14: 15
“As the FATHER loved ME, I also have loved you; abide in my love. If you keep my commandments, you will abide in MY love, just as I have kept MY FATHER’S commandments and abide in HIS love.” John 15: 9-10
6.“DANCE!!!!!!!! I CREATED YOU TO DANCE!”
“Then David danced before YAHWEH with all his might; and David was wearing a linen ephod…
Now as the ark of YAHWEH came into the city of David, Michal, Saul’s daughter, looked through a window and saw King David leaping and twirling before YAHWEH; and she despised him in her heart…
Then David returned to bless his household. And Michal the daughter of Saul, came out to meet David and said, “How glorious was the king of Israel today, uncovering himself today in the eyes of the maids and the servants, as one of the base fellows shamelessly uncovers himself!…
And David said to Michal, ‘It was before YAHWEH…
Therefore I will play music before YAHWEH. And I will be even more undignified than this.’
Therefore Michal, the daughter of Saul, had no children till the day of her death.”
2 Sam. 6: 13, 16, 20-21; 23
“Let them praise HIS name with the dance.” Ps. 149: 3
“Praise HIM with the timbrel and dance.” Psalm 150: 4a
“YOU STILL THINK SOME OF MY COMMANDS ARE OPTIONAL. THEY ARE NOT!”
“Do not think I have come to destroy the Law (God’s teaching and instruction) or the prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill. For assuredly, I say to you, till Heaven and earth pass away, not one jot or one tittle will by no means pass from the Law (God’s teaching and instruction) till all is fulfilled.”
Matt. 5: 17-18
7.“POUR YOURSELF OUT AS I POURED MYSELF OUT FOR YOU—
WITH MERCY,TENDERNESS,AND LOVE TO YOU FELLOW MAN AND WOMAN.
READ THE BOOK OF JAMES OFTEN.
THERE WAS A REASON THIS BOOK WAS SO DISPUTED WHEN IT CAME TIME TO CHOOSE WHICH LETTERS TO INCLUDE.
IT CALLS ON MY SERVANTS TO BE MORE THAN SUNDAY WARRIORS.
IT CALLS ON MY BOND-SERVANTS AND MAIDENS TO POUR THEMSELVES OUT.
I MEANT WHAT I SAID WHEN I SPOKE, ‘TAKE UP YOUR CROSS AND FOLLOW ME.’
LOOK AT MOTHER THERESA. AS SHE POURED HERSELF OUT, I POURED MYSELF IN. OH, I KNOW HER DOCTRINE MAY DIFFER FROM YOURS. WHAT I LOOK AT ARE HEARTS, AND HER HEART WAS FILLED WITH MY HEART.”
“Then Jesus (YESHUA) said to His disciples, “If anyone desires to come after ME, let him deny himself, and take up his cross and follow ME.”
Matt 16: 24 also Mark 8: 34 and 10:31, Luke 9:23
“But be doers of the WORD, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man observing his natural face in a mirror; for he observes himself, goes away and immediately forgets the kind of man he was. But he who looks into the perfect law of liberty and continues in it, and is not a forgetful hearer but a doer of the WORD, this one will be blessed in what he does…
Pure and undefiled religion before God and the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their troubles, and to keep oneself unspotted from the world.” James 2:1:22-25, 27
“What does it profit, my brethren, if someone says he has faith but does not have works. Can faith save him? If a brother or sister is naked and destitute of daily food and one of you says to them, ‘Depart in peace, be warmed and filled..’ but you did not give them the things which are needed by the body, what does it profit? Thus also, faith by itself, if it does not have works is dead.” James2: 14-17
“THIS MY CHILD ENCOMPASES PRESCHOOL LESSON # 1.”
And then I saw my LION quietly reposing in the HOLY OF HOLIES. There was a large jeweled crown on his head. Light was bouncing off the golden crown. Light was everywhere.
HE turned his head and smiled at me.
Then the vision faded away.
My Summary of lesson # 1
1.Remember my Creator throughout the day. 2.Pray and sing in tongues often. 3.Worship – abandoned, undignified, unreligious worship! 4.Eat HIS WORD. EAT IT! EAT IT! EAT IT! Mysteries will be unlocked as I do so. 5.Be OBEDIENT to HIS WORD and the MOST HOLY SPIRIT’S prompting. Don’t procrastinate. 6.Dance before YAHWEH! 7.Pour myself out tenderly, as HE poured HIMSELF out for me.
Read the book of James often.
