LION OF ZION PART 4
THE ARK & THE BETROTHAL
FEBRUARY 14, 2004
By Rosie Lovejoy
I saw a beautiful, scarlet red rose, flawless, with deep green leaves. The rose was three quarters open. It was a jewel among roses. The rose remained in my vision for over five minutes.
Then I saw a huge swirling bank of clouds. The clouds were white, with soft, multi-colored gray clouds intermingled. The clouds were swirling counter clockwise, like a mighty hurricane, slowly turning. Then the center began to rise into a tube of swirling white clouds and became a mighty vortex, like a tornado. The vortex then became a Torah Scroll, vertically swirling. One end of the scroll began to roll to the left, and rolled itself out to the end. Then the other half began to unroll towards the right, until it became totally unrolled. I could make out the Hebrew letters on the scroll.
Then a voice thundered:
THIS… IS… MY… WORD!!!!
Then the clouds continued to swirl, and I heard the words:
THIS YEAR MY WINDS WILL BLOW AND THE WATERS WILL RAGE.
Then I saw an old-fashioned brass doorknob and plate. It was suspended in the air, and was not attached to a door or anything solid. I looked a moment then reached out and turned the doorknob.
It was flooded with light as a long circular corridor appeared, with a blinding, blazing, gold light at the end of it. The light was so bright I could not look into it. There were no lights in the corridor; they were not necessary. The golden light at the end of the long, circular hallway was providing all the light the corridor needed.
Soon a large male sheep, with beautiful circular horns stood in the hallway, looking at me with tender, loving, infinitely deep compassionate eyes.
As I stood looking back at the ram, animals began to walk down the hallway two by two. It was if a silent voice was calling them, and they were answering the call. I saw elephants and cattle, horses and zebras, and birds of all kinds. There was row after row of animals, walking towards the blinding light.
As they were entering the light, I saw my favorite LION welcoming them. I realized it was HE who had been calling them.
Then the LION spoke:
WHEN NOAH WAS ON THE EARTH I TOLD HIM WHAT WAS COMING, AND I INSTRUCTED NOAH TO BUILD AN ARK OF SAFETY. AND HE DID. THERE WAS NOTHING TO SHOW HIM THAT A FLOOD WAS COMING. THERE WAS ONLY MY INSTRUCTIONS AND HIS FAITHFUL OBEDIENCE. EVERYONE LAUGHED AT HIM AND SCORNED HIM. YET HE OBEYED, AND BUILT THE ARK. WHEN HE CALLED THE ANIMALS, THEY CAME.
I HAVE BEEN CALLING MY PEOPLE AGAIN:
‘WILL YOU COME INTO THE ARK OF MY COVENANT WITH ME?
WILL YOU COME?
WILL YOU COME INTO THE PLACE OF SAFETY?
COME!! COME AWAY!! COME AWAY WITH ME!!
I AM CALLING MY BELOVED TO ENTER THE ARK OF THE COVENANT WITH ME.’
And I looked and the animals were coming in droves, but there were just a few people scattered among the animals.
Then I saw a large wooden cross sitting alone on the top of a high hill.
And I heard the words:
THE WAY OF THE CROSS IS THE WAY OF LIFE.
Light back lit the cross, and it glowed with the same golden light as the corridor. Behind it the sky had a glow like that of twilight.
Then a large, swirling object began to twirl through the air. It was miles wide, and light was bouncing off of it. It landed on the cross and I saw that it was a large, gold engagement ring, with a brilliant square solitaire diamond. The ring hung on the top of the golden cross, with rainbows of fiery light bouncing off the diamond.
It hung on the cross for a minute or so, then began to fly through the air, in a swirling movement.
Soon it paused, with the diamond toward the front, and floated in mid air. Then it swirled through the air again, and paused, diamond extended, over and over again. (I now know HE was offering the ring to others unseen by me.)-
Then the ring was in front of me. Brilliant rainbows of light were bouncing off the many facets of the large, square diamond. It was so gorgeous!!!!
A gentle voice spoke:
WILL YOU BECOME BETROTHED TO ME?
WILL YOU BE MY BRIDE?
My heart nearly burst with ecstasy!!!!! Yes!!!! Yes, LORD!!!!! I responded joyfully.
Then HE was standing there beside me, and HE placed HIS right arm over my shoulder. I felt a covering placed about me. It was a beautiful white prayer shawl. It was placed over me in a gesture of love and protection. We began to walk down the corridor towards the blazing light together.
I then found myself watching my movement with my BELOVED from outside the golden corridor. As I neared the light with my BELOVED, lovely white gossamer feathered wings came down and blocked the entrance to the corridor, shielding it from my view.
