“When they landed, they saw a fire of burning coals there with fish on it, and some bread.Jesus said to them, “Come and have breakfast.” None of the disciples dared ask him, “Who are you?” They knew it was the Lord.” John 21:9, 12 NIV
I read this beautiful passage today and I wanted to enter that experience on the beach with Jesus so I entered vision. I saw the fire on the beach from the perspective of me coming out of the water and Jesus facing me on the beach, standing on the other side of the fire where He was roasting fish. He asked me to come and have breakfast. It was just Him and I on this beach. But I could see mostly His lower garment, not so much His upper body nor face at that point as it was still dark out. The fire was making His garments glow and more visible. Since He invited me, I should walk over to Him but its a bit scary. Its Jesus Himself!! Not just anyone. I walked over. Like sheepishly. I kept walking towards Him still only seeing His lower garments by the fire. I found myself approaching but not directly looking right into His face. It’s a bit scary to look into His eyes. What would His face look like? What would I see? So I approached until I reached Him and found Him taking me into His arms. It was easier to just rest my head on His chest as He held me, I couldn’t breathe at the thought of looking up into His eyes. I didn’t dare yet. What a warm welcome! Just for me! He made breakfast. Just for me! It was just me and Him. I felt so warm and peaceful and good. I rested my head on His chest. He embraced me very warmly. One arm around my back, His hand holding my head. I was overwhelmed. But then I found myself looking up into His face anyway. I was met with this biggest, warmest smile that was so real. There was nothing but acceptance and love in that smile. It was sooo good. I was watching this unfolding in the spirit and then became aware that physically I felt a tear started rolling down my cheek as I was siting eyes closed on the couch. Then I went back into vision. I realized that His smile was so amazing it wiped away my initial fear to look Him into the eyes. I realized He is a friend. Not a scary person I need to be afraid of. I said to myself, “this is better then eating food”. Then suddenly in a split second I sensed Jesus said “lets race”. Then I saw us both take off running on the beach. I didn’t know if I should try to beat Him running (being a competitive person) or maybe He would let me win anyway? 🙂 🙂 But in the end it wasn’t about competition, who could run faster (As if anyone could outrun the Creator). We were just having fun and I could hear Him laughing crazily!!! He even stopped to catch His breath as He was still laughing loudly. I thought to myself…. “man! Jesus is so down to earth! He knows how to have some fun!” And the vision ended. I loved the experience and I still feel warm inside.
As I am sitting here reading Mary Baxter’s account of her trips to heaven by the Spirit of God, all she saw and experienced, I am reminded of a snap shot, short vision I had on June 14th this year- of what that day will be like when I enter heaven myself.
I saw how I will be received when I get there to heaven!!!!! Angels blowing trumpets. Rows of skinny trumpets, sounding like when royalty arrives. I heard the sound in my spirit! Wooooow!!!! I was amazed…. like….”is all that for meeeee?”
And I saw staircases as well, that I was being led up on by an angel on each of my side. The staircase looked so beautiful and the sides of it looked like quite the art work. Hard to describe. I can’t wait for that day!! I yearn for that eternal home.
I love how you love me, Jesus. I love how you are faint with love for me and miss me so much when I don’t come spend quiet time, listening to you. I am reading so much about heaven and sometimes I am soooo longing for that place. I know I would love to go there sooner then later sometimes. But now we can even go through vision. I would love for you to show me places in heaven even now. What do you think?
“AND YOU CAN NOW. YOU CAN WITH THE EYES OF YOUR HEART. THIS IS HOW WE SHARE. THROUGH OUR HEARTS. I WANT TO SHARE SO MUCH WITH YOU ABOUT MY LIVING ABODE. I WANT YOU THERE WITH ME ALSO. IT WILL BE A GLORIOUS DAY, BELIEVE ME. ONE LIKE YOU NEVER IMAGINED. IT WILL BE SO BEAUTIFUL. I HAVE THIS PLACE READY FOR YOU BUT THE TIME IS NOT NOW. NOT YET. I HAVE CALLED YOU TO THE NATIONS AND YOU SHALL GO. THIS IS WHAT I HAVE FOR YOU. YOUR REWARD WILL BE IN THE NATIONS. AND THEY TOO SHALL COME HERE. HOW WILL THEY OTHERWISE? I HAVE THIS BEAUTIFUL PLACE FOR THE NATIONS AND FOR YOU. YOU REPRESENT THE NATIONS AS WELL HERE. EVEN WHEN YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND. ITS LIKE AN AMBASSADOR. YOU REPRESENT THEM. AND YOU CAN BRING THEM IN”.
If you just read the previous blog: “Vision: God’s Refrigerator”, this next one is on 2 visions God gave my daughter and I a few years back, again on His abundance. At the time it had to do with finacial provision for her.
My daughter and I were having a conversation just earlier. She had teary eyes as she was expressing her concerns and fears about God’s provision as she is about to launch into her calling as a missionary after graduation. I shared with her out of a book I was reading, it just happened to have a section where the author was sharing how in a vision he saw a storeroom in heaven where God showed him all kinds of money and told him about His provisions.
Then I suggested we pray and ask God to show us each a vision in regards to money and His provision. Tears were running down her face as she was waiting upon God and watching. I did the same thing individually and then we shared what we each saw and heard the Lord say.
She saw herself sitting on a bench, the Lord Jesus…

Today I was praying about God’s abundance. I asked God to show me a picture of what His abundance is like. It would help me see that His abundance is a total absence of lack! Any sort of lack. Whether it be emotional, financial, relationships, etc. It came to my mind that I could ask God to show me what His refrigerator in Heaven would look like if there was such a thing. (Now, don’t go run and say I said there is a physical refrigerator in heaven)… 🙂
Right away in prayer the picture started developing. This is what God’s abundance would look like: From the outside, His refrigerator would look like a normal double door large refrigerator. As tall as the one in your kitchen. But as soon as you open….. the size inside becomes ridiculously enormous. You can’t see the back of the refrigerator because it is so deep. The width is also crazy. Opening the refrigerator from the outside can be done by a single person, but when you open, thousands of people could crawl into it at the same time. It’s sooo tall. In fact you need ladders to climb up and reach things at higher level. There is bright light also inside of it. The bottles, jars, fruits, vegies, perishables, non-perishables, cooked food, raw food, desserts… all you can imagine. But the most amazing thing I could sense is that food never runs out!!! Thousands eat out of the refrigerator at the same time and the quantity of food never diminishes because this refrigerator keeps PRODUCING more food like a tree produces fruit. You can pick off fruit but more fruit keeps growing. That’s what His refrigerator is like! You can eat all you want. And best of all, you are not freezing cold inside the refrigerator (I hate cold weather) as it is the right temperature although when you open, the same kind of cold air rolls out like when you open a freezer! Can you see it? Can you picture it? Can you fathom this abundance? I speak this kind of abundance into my life! Let the natural agree with the supernatural that already exists in the glory realm!! Amen! There is no lack with God.
Re-living a vision I had a couple years ago…
It was bedtime for me… so before drifting off to sleep I prayed and asked God if He would show me anything He wanted to show me if I were to place myself in that Biblical account.
I closed my eyes and started imagining what that upper room might have looked like, all ready for the party to show up. I was still creating the picture myself at that moment, seeing the walls, the low table and what might have been on the dining table, the windows in the room and what I might have seen outside the windows. I kept waiting to see what I would see when the Spirit of God would take over the mental picture as it would start flowing with life of its own. I thought maybe I would see Jesus come up the stairs with His disciples, so that was my expectation. But that…

Have you ever experienced a season of abundance in visions (description about to follow, keep reading) and then a dry season? Or maybe a season of abundant dreams and then a season where you get no dreams from the Lord? Sometimes it is in journaling. The Lord speaks clearly at every turn , any time of the day it seems and then a season where He seems to be silent. Seasons are a normal part of our walk with the Lord. It is even evident in the natural. It isn’t winter year around (thank God!!!) Summer comes around too (Haleluyah!!!!)
I feel like now I am in one of those seasons of No Vision. I love my daily quiet times with the Lord. They are so intimate and we talk back and forth for a while to start off the day. But when I want to enter vision, nothing flows. I try to look for Him as I close my eyes. I imagine Him like I have seen Him so many times before, but it doesn’t flow. And it is quite ok. It is a season. Just another season. He is very present anyway. Even when I don’t get visions or dreams. He speaks loud daily even if I can’t experience Him in pictures right now. God’s gifts are irrevocable. So I was pondering… how do you know a vision is flowing anyway?? I will try to describe here.
In visions every mental picture starts moving with life of its own. We have 5 senses in the natural. Sight, smell, touch, taste and hearing. All of those senses are the same in the natural but they are sensed with an “inner knowing”. For example. In a vision you can “feel a warm breeze”, you can “smell a certain fragrance”, you can “hear certain sounds or what is being said”, you can “see what is happening in the vision” and you can even “taste things”. But not in the natural. It’s all in the inner spirit. You know that you know that you know! You know that you saw the color green for example. You can tell Jesus is holding a box for example, it’s size, the color, all descriptions. All of it is in your inner knowing. And the vision keeps moving and you can describe everything you are experiencing. And to top it off, there is always, always the element of surprise just like watching a movie on a tv screen. You don’t know what is coming next until it unfolds. And you constantly are seeing, hearing, feeling, tasting and smelling the next thing as it unfolds. (not all senses are always involved. I hardly ever have tasted anything in a vision for example). It may be just for seconds, it can keep flowing for minutes or up to an hour or over. Not important how long. The content is important, because it’s what He wants to show you in that moment. This is such an intimate experience when the Lord shows up in a vision and lets you see things that you did not know. Sometimes they are just for you, sometimes you see things for other people or for other nations. Sometimes warnings, sometimes revealing what is going on with others. In either case, it’s what He wants to share with you, always for a specific reason. Whether to bring joy or to calm you or to awaken you or to send you on a mission.
I want to be more curious to grow in this beautiful experience. I want to learn from others too. If you have a different experience concerning visions or want to add to my experience, I’d love to hear and learn. Vision will come back for me. But if now is a dry season, I will wait until He shows up again in that way. For now I enjoy my daily dates with Him in the morning talking about anything we wish. I’d like to grow into the next level. There are always sooo much new to learn and experience with the Lord. Never a dull moment. If He is not showing up in visions, He is showing up in dreams. If not in dreams, He shows up through His Word. If not, He shows up through journaling. Or any other way He does for you. He is God and He can speak however He wishes to and either way, we love it and we love Him. And we want MORE!
Yesterday during worship time I had a vision. I saw 3 African warriors. Very distinct and clear. The pictures below is to show the kinds of shields I saw them carrying. As large as their bodies practically and wielding spears above their heads. Also I sensed they were female warriors and there were 3 of them if not mistaken. Not sure if females go to battle like this in the natural, but that is what I saw in the spirit. I sensed they were intense in their resolve. So, while worshipping I got into spiritual warfare myself and positioned myself like them warriors and interceded in the spirit.
This morning I had a vision, Lord. Very vivid on a screen while sleeping. It was projected over our bedroom curtain. While asleep I looked and the screen was at first blurry until I said “it’s a vision, I am seeing a vision”. Then it was as sharp as a tv screen. I saw images that were moving, at the time I knew what I was seeing and I was processing trying to make sense of what the images meant. But right now while awake, I can’t remember what I saw. I can’t remember if I saw people, I can’t remember if I saw objects. All I know is that what I was seeing seemed to be only on the right half of the screen. I had a smile on my face (in the dream) as I realized finally I was having a clear vision. But right then I was saying… “I want to understand what I am seeing though, but I don’t understand”. Then the content of the images changed. Now it seemed to be moving circles either on the whole screen or the left half of the screen. And that part was move memorable. Like large bubbles moving on the screen. And I was thinking… I don’t know what these mean. And then it ended. Then regular dreaming continued, nothing prophetic… but I woke up a bit bothered that I can’t remember what I saw in the vision at all except of the large bubbles that were moving on the screen. The screen was SO vivid!!! And bright!! What is all this, Lord…
SO YOU DON’T REMEMBER OR UNDERSTAND THE DREAM. BUT YOU KNOW THAT I DO. YES, I GAVE YOU A VISION THIS MORNING. DO YOU FEEL MORE COMFORTED AND HAPPY TO KNOW THAT I AM WITH YOU? DO YOU FEEL MORE SECURE KNOWING I HOLD YOU IN MY HANDS AND AM WATCHING OVER YOU? YOU ARE A BIT UNCOMFORTABLE SUDDENLY. HAVE I CHANGED? HAS THE VISION I HAVE FOR YOU CHANGED? YOU JUST ARE NOT IN CONTROL. THAT IS WHAT THE VISION MEANS. YOU ARE NOT IN CONTROL. YOU CAN’T CONTROL EVEN YOUR MEMORY. THAT IS WHAT THE VISION MEANS. SO WHY FRET ABOUT IT. I KNOW WHAT I AM DOING AND THAT IS THE IMPORTANT PART. I KNOW PRECISELY WHAT I AM DOING AND I CHOOSE WHEN AND WHAT I MAKE CLEAR TO YOU. AND WHEN I MAKE IT CLEAR, IT IS VERY CLEAR. BUT WHEN I DON’T MAKE IT CLEAR, JUST KNOW THAT THE VISION IS THERE, WEATHER YOU HAVE UNDERSTANDING OR RECOLLECTION OR NOT. I LOVE YOU SO. YOU MAKE ME SMILE. YOU MAKE ME HAPPY. I LOVE WHO YOU ARE. AND I LOVE WHAT WE HAVE TOGETHER. YOU MAKE ME SO HAPPY. I LOVE YOU.
This vision started a few days ago and since in the past I have revisited a particular vision over and over and watch it evolve each time, this time I decided to revisit those Big Tall Doors into God’s presence that I saw 3-4 days ago. 2 days ago I wanted to enter again, I did and had another vision. But I thought to myself it was a short vision, even insignificant, so I didn’t share. But now it’s like 4 days later … I had another short vision, so I am going to share them anyway. Who knows… they may continue developing from here…
This one was from 2 days ago: I want to revisit that vision again where I enter the tall doors where smoke is billowing from underneath and between the doors. I open by faith. The doors do open and I go in. The glory clouds do surround me. But this time when I look behind me expecting the doors to have closed behind me like before, they are actually still open and the billowing smoke is escaping the room going outside like vapor streaming out. Then I realize that there are people coming into its direction, the people are lining up facing the Big Tall Doors and this ‘smoke, vapor, cloud’ moves towards them. That’s it. I didn’t hear anything or see anything else beyond that. What do you make of that?
