DREAM: It was the department store's closing time. I was to go up to the 3rd level (parable 3rd heaven) and I was looking for the elevator. I got caught in a line of people and they were being ushered into a meeting room. Pastor said from the back of the room, “Today's lesson is on giving one another honor.” Then he had us stand up to be excused for the down elevator.


The room and people looked like the end of a wedding ceremony where every other row is excused one at a time so they may leave in an orderly fashion. The first row in front of me was excused, then the first row across the isle. I was first in line of the second row and I knew it was my turn. As I started to move, he stopped me and allowed the whole section on the right side of the building to be excused while I stood waiting.


During the wait, Wayne came into line in front of me as though I had been saving a place for him. As he did this, I thought, “How appropriate he should be here!” I knew it was his place and I graciously accepted it without hesitation.


As I was standing there waiting, I saw everyone's outfits they wore while working in the store. Each was different, reflecting their position. I wore a long flowing nightgown. It was made of beautiful shimmering material and had several layers on it. I wondered if I would have to take the people's elevator to the bottom before I could use it to go to the 3rd level above.



You are waiting in line, for the right timing to come to the throne room. In the mean time, I AM enduing you with My sabbath rest in My Words. And your loved one shall join you and take his place in line along with you.


“After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter. 2 And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne.” (Rev 4:1-2 KJV)





Quickened about the elevator to the bottom floor:


Matt 23:11-12 NKJV

But he who is greatest among you shall be your servant. And whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted.


Phil 2:2-4 NKJV

Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself. Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others.





In the early 1980's, when I knew it was my promise to go to the throne room and see the Lord, I was very busy trying to do everything I could think of to make it there. Soon the Lord taught me the concept of a “striving spirit” and helped me to see I was striving not only in myself, but with Him. He told me He was going to bring me into Sabbath rest, whereby I would be finished with all that striving stuff, and learn to just rest in Him. I had many things about nightgowns back then. The very best example I remember was one particular time I was really anxious about seeing Him:


VISION 1980's: I had a vision where my bed was by the window, and instead of resting in it, I was pacing back and forth in front of the window like an animal would do in a zoo. The Lord's answer to that problem was a picture I shall never forget:  It was the large, bold letter E that they have on eye charts: It was laying on its back, in a 4 poster bed, looking up to heaven. In His funny way He was telling me “Keep your eyes focused on Me, and be at rest while you are doing so!”


There is a divine tension between striving to enter into His rest and being there. I have placed all my natural and supernatural strength into resisting the enemy so that I may draw near to Him for many years. I have most definitely “striven” in doing so.


However, as I break through and hear Him I have learned to be at complete rest. It is a rest in my body, my mind, my heart, my emotions. I have done this so often I have learned to do it even now during the day, and can hear Him thus. I have found if my mind is distracted, my emotions are disarrayed, or whatever, I am not able to enter into that rest and I have to separate from it all to come to Him. It is a learned discipline, for my survival at night and in the day time when other things press in.


Sabbath rest is my heart's desire, and I know it has something to do with leaving the darkness behind and entering into a place where I simply believe Him and His Words and nothing that might oppose such matters.


Sabbath rest to me is trusting in the Sovereignty of God. It is taking authority over the demonic that manifest, because that is what Jesus did, and it is trusting in God's goodness and dominion over all for His good purposes.


Heb 4:13 NKJV

Therefore, since a promise remains of entering His rest, let us fear lest any of you seem to have come short of it. 2 For indeed the gospel was preached to us as well as to them; but the word which they heard did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in those who heard it. 3 For we who have believed do enter that rest, as He has said:


"So I swore in My wrath,'They shall not enter My rest,'" although the works were finished from the foundation of the world. 4 For He has spoken in a certain place of the seventh day in this way: "And God rested on the seventh day from all His works"; 5 and again in this place: "They shall not enter My rest."


6 Since therefore it remains that some must enter it, and those to whom it was first preached did not enter because of disobedience, 7 again He designates a certain day, saying in David, "Today," after such a long time, as it has been said:  "Today, if you will hear His voice,Do not harden your hearts."

8 For if Joshua had given them rest, then He would not afterward have spoken of another day. 9 There remains therefore a rest for the people of God. 10 For he who has entered His rest has himself also ceased from his works as God did from His.


11 Let us therefore be diligent to enter that rest, lest anyone fall according to the same example of disobedience. 12 For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. 13 And there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are naked and open to the eyes of Him to whom we must give account.
