This is a vision and word given to me by the Holy Spirit for someone He loves very much. I see a path; someone is walking away from a cozy area filled with light, laughter, and love. The further you walk away from the Light the more dark and murky the path becomes. Evil gargoyle-like creatures hide in the deep recesses of the darkness, but you do not see them because the light is receding behind you. As you continue on the broad path, the evil things block your ears to the cry of the Light behind you, “Come back my child.” As you walk further, you now have several visitors that accompany you, but you do not see them because your eyes have been blinded by the god of this world. [2 Corinthians 4:4]
Your vision is dulled because of your distance from the Light, and you do not notice the evil that lurks ever closer to you. Your remoteness from the Light makes you vulnerable and your senses dull. You are already in danger when you begin to feel something sinister around you. [Ephesians 6:12] You look around and notice your dark surrounds when suddenly fear springs out of the bushes at you. As fear holds you in its grip, panic jumps you in a vicious attack. Involuntarily your heart begins to race, you fall to your knees in terror, and begin to pray, to ask the Light to help you. “Help me, Jesus, help me.”
The King has been watching you and has prepared your protection in advance. I see a large angel in the southeastern sky fill his bow with an arrow and awaits the King’s command. Sobbing you call out to the King for protection, and joyously you hear a beautiful voice calling in the distance. “My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me.” [John 10:27-28] At a signal from the King, the angel pulls his bow and begins to take out the rats that surround you. [Psalm 68:17] Make not mistake about this, the King loves you, and willingly laid down His life for you. He never took His eyes off of you. Sometimes things come into our live to purify us, to call us to repent, to bring us closer to Him who loves you beyond belief.
Hear Him calling you even now, the King calls to you to return to Him, repent and return to your first love. “Anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see. As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.” [Revelation 3:18-19 KJV] As you repent the King opens your eyes and you see the carcasses of the evil that surrounded you. Hallelujah!!
You were always loved, always protected, you just had to call out to Him, and seek repentance. “Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me. Do not cast me away from your presence…….Restore to me the joy of Your salvation and sustain me with a willing spirit.” [Psalm 51:10-12]
Take heart, my friend, He always watches you, always calls for you, always protects you, and we are always victors in Him who loves us. “But in all these things we overwhelmingly conquer through Him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, not things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” [Romans 8:37-39 NAS]
