LION OF ZION # 27
"CLING TO ME AND DO NOT STRAY!"
by Rosie Lovejoy
October 9, 2005
Once again I found myself on a bluff, overlooking crashing waves and violent water below. The wind was blowing and a storm was clearly approaching. I was in the same place I had been in LION OF ZION # 26, and numerous other visions.
Standing next to me was my LION, my LORD, and my KING. I gently draped my arm over his neck, and placed my cheek against HIS cheek. I felt such love emanating from HIM and for HIM. I was suspended in an atmosphere of love.
HE then spoke,
"YOU ARE GOING TO HAVE TO BE CLOSER TO ME IN THE DAYS AHEAD THAN YOU ARE NOW. YOU WILL NEED TO CLING TO ME AND ANSWER MY GENTLE WHISPER.
I AM THE KING COMING TO RECLAIM MY KINGDOM, COMING TO SET THINGS STRAIGHT, COMING TO ROAR.
DO NOT STRAY! DO NOT STEP FROM ME EVEN A FEW STEPS,
FOR IT WILL BE TOO FAR! DO NOT STRAY! DO NOT STRAY!"
I looked at the scene ahead of me. Waves were crashing far below. The water was choppy and foamy and filled with small debris. The wind was blowing and thick gray clouds were rolling in from the sea. I felt such love for my KING that I bent over and tenderly kissed the top of HIS head. Then I continued to watch the scene -- wind and waves and rolling clouds.
I looked once again at LION and was surprised to see that where I had kissed HIM, a gorgeous golden jeweled crown now sat. HE invited me to mount HIM, and I like the obstinate, foolish woman I am, I refused. (I didn't want to be riding on the back of the crowned LION OF ZION!… It felt too presumptuous and disrespectful. I have so much yet to learn about obedience and surrender. And from what I am being shown, time is running out for HIS disobedient disciples, including me!)
Rather, I knelt before HIM, and looked directly into HIS gentle eyes of love. I told HIM how much I loved HIM and how much HE meant to me. "COME!" HE ordered.
I looked up and a huge eagle appeared and landed next to us. "COME!" the eagle ordered. This time I didn't refuse. I climbed onto the back of the eagle and it began to climb high into the sky. We passed through the misty clouds and left the seashore far behind, flying inland. From high above the earth the eagle began to speak to me.
"SEE HOW YOU ARE CLINGING TO ME AS I FLY.
YOU REALIZE THAT IF YOU LET GO FOR EVEN AN INSTANT, THAT YOU WILL FALL OFF AND DIE.
SO IT WILL BE IN THE TIMES AHEAD. THOSE NOT CLINGING TO ME WILL BE IN GRAVE DANGER OF LOSING THEIR LIVES AND NOT FULFILLING THEIR MISSIONS. THE TIMES AHEAD ARE FAR MORE PERILOUS THAN YOU CAN NOW IMAGINE.
THERE IS SAFETY IN THE SHADOW OF MY WINGS.
THERE IS PROTECTION IN THE SHADOW OF MY WINGS.
THERE IS LOVE IN THE SHADOW OF MY WINGS.
THAT IS WHERE YOU NEED TO BE."
I looked down and saw small cracks begin to appear in the surface of the earth with steam coming out of them. There were cracks in roadways, cracks in farmland, cracks in unexpected places.
And so I clung to the eagle as we soared high above the changing earth below.
LION OF ZION # 28 "THE WINDS OF WAR ARE BLOWING"
April 11, 2006
By Rosie Lovejoy
It has been months since I have experienced a lengthy vision of the LION OF ZION. During that period of time I had become rebellious and distracted. And my LORD sat quietly by, until at the most unsuspecting moment, HE forcefully and suddenly, in the twinkling of an eye, came down with HIS hammer upon the idols I had erected.
I suspect I experienced in a small shocking measure what each of us is going to experience when "suddenly" the only truth we know is how much we are loved by our Creator -- and to what lengths HE will go to bring HIS prodigal creation back to HIS loving arms of grace.
* * * *
I found myself on a rocky mountain path. The air was hot and dry, with the smell of scorched vegetation. The path was similar to many I have hiked in the Olympic Mountains of Washington State during August, when even the rain forests were crying for moisture. Beside me stood the LION, taller and more muscular than I had remembered HIM. HE was looking dusty and hot.
I knew that I was being asked to board HIS back, and I didn’t want to do so. The heat and the dryness gave me a clue as to where HE was going to take me. I instinctively felt certain that I was going to be taken to the same plateau I have stood on many times with HIM. I suspected I was going to be shown more images of war. I didn’t want to see them! Not now, not after what I had been through the last few months.
HE turned HIS piercing eyes towards me, and motioned for me to get on HIS back. Reluctantly, I complied.
HE began to stride quickly up the steep mountain path, much faster than I could have hiked it on my own. Then HE began to speak. "YOU HAVE BEEN FOOLISH AND GONE YOUR OWN WAY,AND NOW THERE IS NO TIME TO WASTE."
HE continued striding up the path so quickly that I had difficulty hanging on to HIM. HE began to speak.
"YOU CANNOT GET TO THE TOP OF THE MOUNTAIN ON YOUR OWN. YOU CANNOT CLIMB BY YOURSELF. AND MY CHILD, THERE IS NO PLACE ELSE THAT IS SAFE, BUT HIGH ON THE MOUNTAIN, HIDDEN IN ME.
FOR THE WINDS OF WAR ARE BLOWING ACROSS YOUR LAND…THE RIGHTEOUS AND UNRIGHTEOUS ALIKE WILL STAND IN THE MIDST OF FIRE, SOME TO BE CONSUMED, SOME TO BE PURIFIED AND MADE GLORIOUS IN MY GLORY.
THERE IS NO PLACE TO HIDE OTHER THAN IN ME. THERE IS NO VOICE TO LISTEN TO, OTHER THAN MY OWN. THERE IS NO AUTHORITY TO OBEY, OTHER THAN THE AUTHORITY OF MY WORD AND MY HOLY SPIRIT. I AM COMING, RIDING ON THE WIND, SEPTER IN MY HAND. I AM COMING TO JUDGE AND COMING TO DELIVER. THE FRUIT IS RIPE. THE ROD HAS BLOSSOMED. *
ALL HAS COME TO FRUITION. ALL IS WELL. BE STILL….AND KNOW THAT I AM GOD.
I AM MERCIFUL AND KIND. I AM GREAT AND TERRIBLE.
I AM COMING TO BLESS MY OWN – TO SET THINGS RIGHT -- TO TREAD THE WINEPRESS—TO DELIVER AND TO HEAL. THE DAY THAT HAS BEEN ANTICIPATED HAS COME AMONG YOU. I HAVE COME AMONG YOU. THE FRUIT IS RIPE. THE HARVEST HAS BEGUN. WOE TO THOSE WHO CHOOSE WRONGLY! WOE TO THOSE WHO MOCKED MY LITTLE ONES! WOE TO THOSE WHO MASQUERADED AS MY OWN BUT ARE NOT MY OWN!
I AM COMING. THE TRUMPET HAS SOUNDED. THE GREAT AND TERRIBLE DAY OF THE LORD IS AT HAND. COME! COME HIGHER! CLING TO ME! FOR ALL IS WELL FOR THOSE WHO LOVE ME AND HEED MY VOICE."
The vision ended with me clinging to HIM, as HE quickly loped up the rocky mountain path.
Eze. 7:10 contains the words "The rod has blossomed." I suggest you read all of Eze. 7, as it contains the context for the reference. I was shocked when I read this chapter, and suspect you will be, too.
