The Lord has been strongly talking to me about Peter who has been running from his calling. He has talked to me many years about this, but it has progressed in intensity since the last quarter of 2005. 


Recently He told me about Peter's betrayal, after having walked so closely to Him for a season.  I had been in painful intercession over this fact.  And someone sent me a Word today about that.  It was very comforting.





Hi Sandy, I had a wonderful dream about you early this morning.  It was short, but nice.  I dreamed you were in sorrow over someone.  I was praying for you in the dream and the Lord reminded me of the hurricane documentary I had seen, a hurricane was traveling very slowly, at 10 miles and hour, but  INSIDE unseen it was going 100+ miles an hour.  I heard the Lord say," Don't judge by how fast a person is progressing by what is seen on the outside."  Then He said, "Ask her if she remembers Peter!"


I told you the above in the dream and I asked if you remembered the disciple Peter, you got very hopeful and excited! 


{end of dream}




This was a very encouraging Word to me in perfect timing to my intercessions.  The part about the hurricane was really quickened to me. When a person is being sifted, they are hurled in a counter clock wise storm inspired by the demonic.  The closer they are to the Lord during this time, they will be carried right in the center of it and be sustained in great peace.  However the farther they run from His eye, the greater the hurling forces are and the sifting becomes very painful if they run away.  I have had several visions of those whirlwinds and each time it was a warning from the Lord to stay in obedience.


Luke 22:31-34 NKJV

And the Lord said, "Simon, Simon! Indeed, Satan has asked for you, that he may sift you as wheat.  But I have prayed for you, that your faith should not fail; and when you have returned to Me, strengthen your brethren."  But he said to Him, "Lord, I am ready to go with You, both to prison and to death." Then He said, "I tell you, Peter, the rooster shall not crow this day before you will deny three times that you know Me." 




CONFIRMATION:  As I looked up the scripture and read this:  "Simon, son of Jonah, do you love Me?" it was strongly quickened to me that Simon was Jonah's son. The word Jonah practically attacked me, it was so strong.  I have never once seen that word before in connection with Peter. 


Then later as I was talking about hurricanes to this lady who had sent me the above dream, she said, "Also, Simon son of JONAH leaped out at me.  Jonah of the great fish fame and Ninivah sort of grabbed my attention here.  I do NOT think it is a coincidence that his sir name was JONAH." 


So her response was a super duper confirmation of the fact that Peter is definitely Jonah.  Boy, he doesn’t stand much chance does he??



Having suffered from the fullness of his mindsets and presumptions, Peter has run from his calling, and denied the joy of fellowship that he once experienced.  The twisting whirlwinds has hurled him through a sifter to separate him from the strongholds of his soul and mind.  Sifted and exhausted, he has returned to his old life, the only life he knew before such a radical life with Me. 


Peter is in My hands and I will rescue this wild one.  I AM faithful to call, and faithful to do it.  Peter may be a very slippery fish, but he will not escape the grip of My keeping power.  I know his heart and know that he loves Me.  I will meet him in the midst of where he has fled, and with the call of My voice, his shame and brokenness shall wash away in one clean jump towards Me.  Yes, he must swim to reach Me, but he has the hope that solid ground is waiting for him and I will meet him there. 


John 21:15-18 NKJV

So when they had eaten breakfast, Jesus said to Simon Peter, "Simon, son of Jonah, do you love Me more than these?" He said to Him, "Yes, Lord; You know that I love You." He said to him, "Feed My lambs."   He said to him again a second time, "Simon, son of Jonah, do you love Me?" He said to Him, "Yes, Lord; You know that I love You." He said to him, "Tend My sheep."   He said to him the third time, "Simon, son of Jonah, do you love Me?" Peter was grieved because He said to him the third time, "Do you love Me?" And he said to Him, "Lord, You know all things; You know that I love You." Jesus said to him, "Feed My sheep.


1 Thess 5:24 AMP

Faithful is He Who is calling you [to Himself] and utterly trustworthy, and He will also do it [fulfill His call by hallowing and keeping you].


Isa 55:8-11 NKJV

"For My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways My ways," says the LORD. "For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts. "For as the rain comes down, and the snow from heaven, and do not return there, but water the earth,

And make it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower and bread to the eater, so shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; It shall not return to Me void, but it shall accomplish what I please, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.
