I had a vision. I had an open night vision.
~“And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my Spirit on all flesh; your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, and your young men shall see visions.”~Joel 2:28, ESV~
During my prayer time with the Lord, I had an open vision that I was a dandelion. The dandelion shed its seeds and turned into a white rose. The rose eventually shed its white petals and I offered the white petals to those in the world to look at, behold, and marvel the white petals of the flower that I presented to them with my hands.
Some in the world accepted the white petals while others in the world rejected them. As I prayed to the Lord and inquired of Him of the meaning behind this open night vision, the Holy Spirit showed me that the dandelion represents the old version of me while the white rose and its white petals represent the new me in Christ as the Holy Spirit of God is preparing me for the release of my book, “A Victory Song: Beneath the Veil.”
~”Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.”~2 Corinthians 5:17, ESV~
I believe that this open night vision has to do with the release of my upcoming book, “A Victory Song: Beneath the Veil,” and that not everyone will accept the message and the message of Christ behind my book. This is solely because in the vision, there were people that I saw in the vision that rejected me, as the representation of the white rose petals.
The people who accepted me, as the representation of the white rose petals, were my supporters and people who I know who I am connected with today. As a child of God with bipolar disorder, people will love me. As a child of God with bipolar disorder, people will hate me for no reason. The Holy Spirit of God is preparing me for my supporters and is also preparing me for those that do not support me.
This is very profound because of past rejection that I have faced in the past, especially as it relates to my friends from college (I talk about his very extensively in my upcoming book and how the Lord gave me the strength to move forward through counseling from my church and to overcome them and their choice to reject me). While I am used to people rejecting me, I am also used to people loving me too.
This love is a new kind of love that only the hands and feet of Christ could give me: both, to my supporters and to those that do not support me. Jesus loves me. Jesus also loves everyone, even if they choose to not love Him back. This is the new Way of love that the Holy Spirit of God is teaching me as Jehovah prepares me for the release of my book, “A Victory Song: Beneath the Veil.”
The Lord has great plans for my future and is molding me and making me prepared and ready for the release of my book to be published in February 2022.
~”But in your hearts honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect.”~1 Peter 3:15, ESV~
My supporters may love me and those who do not support me may hate me without a cause, but I am ready to defend the reason for this hope that is in Jesus Christ, my Lord and Savior, as my book is to be published in February 2022.
This is my message for everyone reading this blog post: prepare and make ready! My white rose petals are going to be shared with the world through the extravagant love of Jesus and so is my story. God bless you and Merry Christmas!!
