What I Open No Man Can Shut

In a dream, I saw Jesus Christ standing as a DOOR between two stone walls set in the clouds of heaven. He wore a robe of many colors. This robe was shining with glory and majesty. His arms were spread from one wall to the other. Then like a door on a hinge, Jesus Christ literally swung open. Then the Holy Spirit spoke these words, “What I open, NO man can shut!”

“And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write: ‘The words of the Holy One, the True One, who has the Key of David, who opens and no one will shut, who shuts and no one opens.” (Revelation 3:7) 

Jesus says of Himself in John 10:9, “I AM the Door. If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture. The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.”

If God opens a Door for you and says YES, who can shut that Door? No one! JESUS is that Door! NO ONE can shut that door. If God gave you a “YES”, take hold of it by faith, run with it and be free.

The Tsunami

by Jessica Smith Art

In a dream, I saw a tsunami coming from afar. It was a monstrous wall of water that would bring devastation. The sight of it was dreadful. As it approached, fear increased, and I anticipated the blow with anxiety and uncertainty. But when it came upon me I was suddenly filled with the Holy Spirit. And instead of the massive wave overtaking me, I lept up on it and ran up it walking on water.  Continue reading “The Tsunami”

Removing the Root of Shame

Unbroken Identity by Meghan Williams of Dyed4you Art

Webster’s defines “shame” as a “feeling of guilt, regret, or sadness that you have because you know you have done something wrong.” It is also “the ability to feel guilt, regret, or embarrassment, dishonor or disgrace.” Shame can become so familiar, almost like an old friend. You know that old friend who your mom told you wasn’t a good influence but you didn’t listen. You look at that old friend and memories of a different time and a different you start to surface. It’s the “before Christ” you, and it isn’t pretty. All of the sudden you are haunted by the shame of your past and it’s crippling. At some point, we have all wrestled with shame. Even the most mature believer can fall prey to shame. I know because it recently happened to me. Continue reading “Removing the Root of Shame”

You’re the Daughter of the King!

Art by Jessica Smith Art

I had this dream a few years ago before the phrase “Daughter Of The King” meant anything to me. I felt the phrase was a cliche and it annoyed me (needless to say I had identity issues)… until I had this dream in the middle of a 15 day water-only fast. I was under the most intense spiritual attack of my life by a spirit of fear/torment. I had forgotten who I truly was in Christ. Continue reading “You’re the Daughter of the King!”

Moving at the Speed of Grace

{vision} I saw a sign on a road showing that the speed limit was 55. There was a blurred line through the middle of the 55, and I knew there were words printed there.

I saw this vision just before I opened my eyes one recent morning. I sensed this was a “sign” for the spiritual speed limit for my day. Immediately, I knew the “55” represented a multiplication of grace. I also recognized the words that I couldn’t read symbolized a “word” that God had for me through this vision. This word would bring clarity to a repeated message He had been speaking in the Spirit: “Slow down.” Continue reading “Moving at the Speed of Grace”
