LION OF ZION # 31

I love mystery books. I love trying to identify the perpetrator from the few clues I am given. And a really good mystery has me guessing what is a clue and what is irrelevant. I love the guessing. The LORD knows how much I love a good mystery, so HE has given me (us!) one to solve by searching HIS WORD, and seeking HIM in prayer. I suspect that there are layers to this mystery. For the mystery is, "What does this vision mean?????" I’ve gone to Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance. I’ve gone to Vines Complete Expository Dictionary, and I am more perplexed than when I began. A LION? A RAM? The Ten Commandments? And a Bride? Whew!
I saw a pedestal made of grey granite. It was thick and weighty and about three and a half feet tall. Sitting on top of the pedestal were two weathered stone tablets. On each tablet was ancient Hebrew lettering. It resembled, but is not, modern day Hebrew. It was faint from age, yet still legible. I believe this is the original Hebrew lettering I was looking at. I instinctively knew it was the Ten Commandments.
Standing beside the pedestal (to my right as I looked at it) was the RAM I had seen for the first time the previous night. HE was pawing the ground, with HIS head down, ready to charge. HE was in full fighting mode.
Then, directly on the other side of the Ten Commandments, on my left as I looked at the image, my favorite LION appeared. HIS head was up, HIS mouth was open, and HE began to growl and then to roar! I watched this image for some time, perplexed as to what it meant.
My LION was roaring, the RAM was getting ready to charge, and sitting absolutely still in the center of the vision was the Ten Commandments in the original Hebrew script, as it was written by the hand of YAHWEH.
And then I became a bride, dressed in white, with a white veil, billowy skirt, and a bouquet of red and white roses. I was soooooo happy! I was giddy with happiness! Walking next to me was YESHUA, my bridegroom, also dressed in white. The vision ended with us joyously walking away together, hand in hand.

LION OF ZION # 32
ARE YOU READY ?

Two years ago at a Women’s Aglow Retreat a small group of women decided that we wanted a place to worship where we could come before the LORD without interference of an agenda. We just wanted to be able to dance before the LORD, worship, and pray until we were too tired to continue.
Our prayers were granted immediately with the offer of a church sanctuary where we come together every other Friday evening to worship our Redeemer. We always begin with an opening prayer, and this time one of the musicians begged the LORD to send and reveal HIS Angels to us. This vision I believe is an answer to her prayer.
I saw the RAM on a high, craggy precipice. Standing about four feet away from HIM was my favorite LION, with the mountain winds blowing through HIS mane. In between the two, Angles of the LORD were appearing and flying into battle. They were wearing shimmering, translucent white tunics with gold sashes. They carried flashing golden swords. They had no wings, and were definitely masculine.
Far below I saw women dancers with worship hoops and flags dancing in a circle, in unison. They wore long swishing skirts and were beautiful to watch. I could tell that this was not a performance before an audience, but a spontaneous act of love and worship, where the women were pouring their whole hearts into their dance.
Then to my amazement, the angels I had seen flying out between the LION and the RAM began to congregate above the women dancers. They too began to worship. I heard the words:
“Worthy is the LAMB, worthy is the LAMB…You are Holy!”
I looked up and saw the RAM high above the dancers pawing the ground. The LION next to HIM was roaring, and multitudes and multitudes of angels were being unleashed. I saw the flashing swords and the light bouncing off the gold sashes.
In the natural I had been dancing and worshiping. I was so startled by what I was seeing that I threw myself down on the church floor and began to beg Yeshua that I would see it right. I didn’t want to make anything up or misrepresent what I was experiencing. I was definitely experiencing “THE FEAR OF THE LORD”, big time.
As I was prostrate on the floor, the angels I had been seeing flew over me with their flashing swords and sparkling golden sashes.
I watched as the LION and the RAM leapt off the precipice and began to stride through the air. Red, hot flames were coming out of the LION’S mouth.
“Oh, oh!” I thought, “I’ve seen these flames before”… (Lion of Zion # 1). I knew to keep myself very flat on the floor, as I didn’t want to be a casualty of those flames.
The RAM whispered into the LION’S ear and both began to descend towards earth. Suddenly they were joined by thousands of Angels in sparkling, mirror like, silver armor. Their swords were drawn and ready. Joining them was YESHUA, on a gorgeous white stallion. HE held a sword in HIS hand with HEBREW letters etched on the steel blade. The handle of the sword was jeweled, with rubies and other flashing precious stones.
YESHUA held up HIS SWORD (which I instinctively knew was the TORAH / WORD of the LORD) and began to thunder:
“I HAVE COME TO RECLAIM WHAT IS MY OWN!
I HAVE COME TO SET THINGS RIGHT!
ARE YOU READY ? ARE YOU READY ?
I AM COMING! I AM COMING!
THE GREAT AND TERRIBLE DAY OF THE LORD IS AT HAND!!!!
ARE YOU READY ?”
“No! I am not ready!” I sobbed back at HIM.
“The Day of the LORD is terrible!
I …AM… NOT… READY!!!
Do we really have to go through it ??!! “ I wailed.
(I was feeling sick to my stomach, as I really didn’t know exactly what ‘The Day of the LORD’ entailed, but I know it is not a fun time for folks here on earth. I really don’t want to have an experience of The Great and Terrible Day of the LORD!)
HE responded, “REJOICE MY CHILD!!
REJOICE! FOR YOU WERE BORN FOR SUCH A TIME AS THIS!!
WORSHIP AND DANCE MY CHILD!
WORSHIP BEFORE ME AND PREPARE YOURSELF,
FOR YOUR BRIDEGROOM COMES!!
YOU WERE BORN FOR SUCH A TIME AS THIS!!!”
And then I found myself on the horse with YESHUA, clinging to HIM, whispering words of love into HIS ear.
About a half an hour later the vision continued. I had gotten up off the floor and was dancing and whirling and worshiping with all my heart.
I found myself on the back of an eagle as it soared in circles, high above the earth, catching the winds as it soared joyously. I was ecstatic to be there, as the joy of the eagle was transmitted to me.
The eagle began to speak into my spirit:
“THIS IS HOW LIFE IS MEANT TO BE, EFFORTLESS, CARRIED ON THE WINDS OF MY SPIRIT!
FOR THE TIMES AHEAD ARE WONDERFUL AND TERRIBLE!
COME AND FLY ABOVE IT ON THE WINDS OF MY SPIRIT!
YOU KNOW AND LOVE EAGLES, MY DEAR. YOU WATCHED AND STUDIED THEM AT CAPE ALAVA.
YOU KNOW HOW EASY IT IS FOR THEM TO SOAR ON THE UPPER WINDS – EFFORTLESSLY… JOYOUSLY!
DO YOU REMEMBER THE DAY THE EAGLES WERE MATING?”
“How could I not?” I replied.
“What are you getting at, LORD?” I felt uncomfortable with this line of talk, as I didn’t know where it was going…
“THE EAGLES MATED OUT OF INSTINCT.” HE replied.
“I AM CALLING MY BRIDE TO ME, TO MATE HER SPIRIT WITH MY SPIRIT…
TO SOAR WITH ME ON THE WINDS OF LOVE TO THE HIGH PLACES,
THE HIGHEST OF HIGH PLACES.”
Then the vision faded, with me clinging to the back of the Eagle as we soared high above the earth and all its cares.
