HEARD:  Going down the bumpy stream with Sandy.  The journey from clay to transparency.  No 2 stories are the same, how they got here.  Bleeding.  Water that’s bleeding.  The journey from flesh to Spirit. 




Exodus 4:25-26 Then Zipporah took a sharp stone, and cut off the foreskin of her son, and cast it at his feet, and said, Surely a bloody husband are you to me. 26 So he let him go: then she said, A bloody husband you are, because of the circumcision.


Jer 4:3-4 NKJV

Break up your fallow ground, and do not sow among thorns. Circumcise yourselves to the LORD, and take away the foreskins of your hearts...


Rom 2:29 NLT

And true circumcision is not a cutting of the body but a change of heart produced by God's Spirit.


COMMENT:  There is coming a move of God where there is going to be massive, chaotic deliverance.  People will lay on the floor in agony, wrestling and releasing and getting up completely free.  It will be a quick work and a bloody one. 


I listened to a sermon from Neville and he kept talking about everyone had to go through an experience called the day of atonement, and this was necessary before being able to move on and go towards the fulfillment of the experience of the feast of Tabernacles.  He described it as afflicting the soul.  As I listened, it all sounded exactly like the process I went through and the Lord called this circumcision of the soul.  Circumcision of the soul is a death to self in our mind, will and emotions where everything that does not line up with the Word of God goes through complete repentance, death and change.



Surgery.  Bloody epinion.  Disorganized, chaotic. Are you OK?  Swept clean.  It was put back into order.  Covering you.  A new day.  Remodel. 



Saw:  As I was praying I saw a little boy who was playing on the couch that had a blanket draped over the seat and down onto the floor. There was what looked like thick grape juice spilled all over the blanket and the little boy was playing in the grape juice. When he stood up he had grape juice all over him.








Anna was taken to heaven and she shares her experiences there.

From the book "The Heaven's Opened"

Starting on page 53, Obedience


"I heard the voice of Jesus very clearly.  "Obedience, Anna."  I stopped in my tracks.  He continued.  "I delight to show you your heavenly home but for your safety you must be trained in obedience.  There are grave dangers.  All doors to the enemy, must be shut." 


As I stood in wonder at the gravity of what He had said an angel appeared on the path beside me.  The angel began talking to as though he were continuing some conversation we had already begun, gesturing with his hand toward God's park.  "All of this is for the children of God, but you Anna have chosen to eat from the hand of God.  You must love your Father enough to choose obedience rather than gratification on earth.  Choose Him minute by minute.  You are careless with His gifts and you are careless with His love for you." 


His over familiarity stunned me as well as his knowledge of a decision I had only recently made.  But yes I was careless.  As the Lord had drawn me into a deeper walk with Him, those things permissible a year or even a month ago were now no longer allowable.  Somehow I could no longer get by with them, but I still lapsed into many of these faults.


Elusive sins caused me to pay a high price in my relationship with the Lord.  I thought to myself, 'Let the wicked forsake his ways, and the righteous his thoughts.'  I had moved from the "way" category to the "thought." 


Isa 55:6-9 NKJV

Seek the Lord while He may be found, Call upon Him while He is near.  7 Let the wicked forsake his way, And the unrighteous man his thoughts; Let him return to the Lord, And He will have mercy on him; And to our God, For He will abundantly pardon.  8 "For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways," says the Lord.  9 "For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways, And My thoughts than your thoughts.


My mind did not focus on unforgiveness or jealousy or such obvious sins.  My sins were now engaging my mind in some area where I was not called.  Or in letting my mind dwell on the past.  Or in making a judgment that was out my boundary of responsibility


My life had become very constrained indeed.  If I walked without turning to the right or the left, I remained in the flow of God's grace.  Any thoughts that were vain in their imaginations caused my mind to run in grooves around a track.  Such thoughts were driven by tormentors it seemed.  But I found that I could stop them by repeatedly catching myself and halting the train of thoughts, as I began to think on such vain thoughts


Of course these thoughts would tip toe back in again, needing to be run out time and time again.  Therefore I was halting them and throwing them out as if my shoulder were against the door of access. Still I was careless, as he had said and was mentally running around many tracks in torment and weariness until each thought was taken captive to Christ.  Earlier in my life with Christ, my mind could do as it pleased.  But not now.  Narrow and narrower was the way.  But in this obedience to His Word was life. 


2 Cor 10:3-6 NKJV

For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. 4 For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, 5 casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ, 6 and being ready to punish all disobedience when your obedience is fulfilled.


Without missing a beat, the angel on the path beside me said, "I am Shama." 


OT:8091  SHAMA

Shama` (shaw-maw'); from OT:8085; obedient; Shama, an Israelite:

KJV - Shama.



shama` (shaw-mah'); a primitive root; to hear intelligently (often with implication of attention, obedience, etc.; causatively, to tell, etc.):

KJV -  attentively, call (gather) together,  carefully,  certainly, consent, consider, be content, declare,  diligently, discern, give ear, (cause to, let, make to) hear (-ken, tell),  indeed, listen, make (a) noise, (be) obedient, obey, perceive, (make a) proclaim (-ation), publish, regard, report, shew (forth), (make a) sound,  surely, tell, understand, whosoever [heareth], witness.


I saw no reason to give my name, for he seemed to know almost as much about me as I did myself.  "Shall we walk?" he continued.


Almost stumbling, I moved forward.  He had long, straight, silver hair that was caught at the base of his head and hung down his back.  He was very muscular, and although his hair was silver, he looked perhaps forty.  He wore a full-length white robe, which looked as though it had been stained with blood of the juice of red grapes.  This stain was on the hem of the robe and on the cuffs of the long sleeves, discoloring the garment to the knees and elbows. 


"You delight in God." he continued.  "I have watched you and see that you desire nearness to Him.  However do you not know that disobedience creates a wall between you and Him?  It is a wall of your own making, because you can not curb your natural desires.  He will replace with Himself, every delight that you push away..."..."There is a type of suffering in obedience, but the rewards far, far outweigh the pain."


... "Why is your robe stained at the bottom and on the sleeves?"


"I am called to assist in child training - the kind that squeezes a child - like being in a wine press.  These," he looked down at the stains, "are visible signs of the child's development.  The more stains, the greater the work has progressed within the child.  Obedience is not learned easily, Anna.  Some on earth never learn it."


Rom 12:1-2 NKJV

I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. 2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.


2 Cor 4:7-12 NKJV

But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellence of the power may be of God and not of us. 8 We are hard-pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; 9 persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed —  10 always carrying about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our body. 11 For we who live are always delivered to death for Jesus' sake, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our mortal flesh.


"Are you an angel assigned to help train me?" I asked.

"I am assigned to you."

"Helping to train people in obedience cannot be a pleasant job."


The angel replied, "It is of great significance to the Father and absolutely necessary.  By this time in your life, my robe should be entirely stained and my face and hands dripping, but there are only stained on the hem and sleevesSo may I suggest that you are hindering your growth through known disobedience.  Immediate gratification can never replace serving the Lord with a whole heart.  Such obedience release joys untold."


I looked out over the landscape, letting the truths he was sharing work within me.  "I have sinned," I said quietly.  I did not wish to seem glib, but I did wish to show a willingness to repent promptly.  "I ask the Lord to forgive me."


He put his arm around my shoulder and jostled me, as a coach might a football player.  "And you know He does.  This is a good  day for new beginning,' he smiled.  Then he removed his arm and looked ahead solemnly.


"I thank you for your patience and for helping me.  I can see you are a powerful angel.  If you were human I would say you 'worked out'."


"We do 'work out'," he laughed heartily, "but our workout comes from wrestling with humans I look as I do because you have given me so much resistance through your flesh.  "So," he laughed, "you might say I do 'work out.'  I would suggest that you turn this very day so that my workout is less strenuous.  Delight yourself in God, Anna, and reduce my exercise program," he smiled.


Then he sobered rapidly.  "Nothing, no one can compare to Him," he said. "Speaking for those of us who are assigned to you," he continued haltingly, almost as if he was going  to reveal something deeply person, "we would like to get a little closer to God."  He almost stammered, "if it were only us, we would; but much depends upon you concerning that."  He seemed so embarrassed by what he had said that he vanished..."

COMMENTS:  Scripture tells us as a man thinks in his heart, so is he.  It is very important to take our thoughts captive.


When we are transformed, we will be able to travel anywhere in earth or heaven with one thought.  We will be transfigured and transformed through the renewing of our minds.


Romans 12:2 And be not conformed to this world: but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.


PIX:  I saw 2 little jar bottles that before had been made out of pottery, were now totally clean, transparent and pure.




HEARD: Clear. To see through His eyes. And for the first time, you understand. Why. You swallowed it, you wanted to know. The sword of the Lord and of Gideon.


Judg 7:19-22 NLT

It was just after midnight, after the changing of the guard, when Gideon and the one hundred men with him reached the outer edge of the Midianite camp. Suddenly, they blew the horns and broke their clay jars. 20 Then all three groups blew their horns and broke their jars. They held the blazing torches in their left hands and the horns in their right hands and shouted, "A sword for the LORD and for Gideon!" 21 Each man stood at his position around the camp and watched as all the Midianites rushed around in a panic, shouting as they ran. 22 When the three hundred Israelites blew their horns, the LORD caused the warriors in the camp to fight against each other with their swords. Those who were not killed fled to places as far away as Beth-shittah near Zererah and to the border of Abel-meholah near Tabbath.


HEARD: You are not alone says the Lord. I accompanied you, your entire journey. To go down that road. All the spots, all the flaws, all washed away.



Listen to the sword of Gideon. He was the weakest in his clan and the least in his father’s house. I chose him to lead an army of only 300 men to deliver Israel from the plundering of the Midianites. It was not through his strength that brought the victory, but his willingness to trust Me in his weakness and obey. I commanded Gideon and his crew to break their clay jars and it was only when their jars broke, that the blazing torches inside appeared to the enemy camp that caused their defeat. So it is with you, beloved one. When you have willing walked through brokenness in obedience to Me, I use this power of weakness to defeat much opposition. Heed this truth, swallow it, for in its wisdom is a powerful key to My perspective towards your healing.


2 Cor 4:7-12 NKJV

But we have this treasure in earthen vessels , that the excellence of the power may be of God and not of us. 8 We are hard-pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; 9 persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed — 10 always carrying about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our body. 11 For we who live are always delivered to death for Jesus' sake, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our mortal flesh. 12 So then death is working in us, but life in you.



Dear one, yes there are seasons when layers of your soul wrestle with Me.  You know I AM much stronger than you!  Smile.  As you lay down the power of your own soul and yield it to Me, I excise those weights off you and set you free.  However if you argue and continue in your own opinions, we tumble, toss and turn until you are exhausted and then let go.  Precious one, all must go through this process of stripping away the layers and veils that stand between us.  I want you a transparent, clear vessel where you will know even as you are known. 


2 Corinthians 3:13-18 And not as Moses, who put a veil over his face, that the children of Israel could not steadfastly see the end of that which is abolished: 14 But their minds were blinded: for until this day remains the same veil not taken away in the reading of the old covenant; which veil is done away in Christ. 15 But even unto this day, when Moses is read, the veil is upon their hearts. 16 Nevertheless when one shall turn to the Lord, the veil shall be taken away. 17 Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. 18 But we all, with unveiled face beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.


Rom 2:29 NLT

And true circumcision is not a cutting of the body but a change of heart produced by God's Spirit.
