SEALED AND PROTECTED
Today someone asked me the following question and it was
quickened to me to look up what I had written about it,
the day Wayne wrapped the books:
Just a quick question about the WONDERFUL books you
shipped me in March. They are a BLESSING to me. I was
wondering if there was a special reason that you wrapped
each one in plastic wrap ? I know these books are
special and I am just now starting to "fine tune" my
senses to recognize and acknowledge what has been with
me for so long. Thank you for writing these books for
the Lord, and for me too!
Be Blessed always,
3/17/07: Wayne wanted to go do errands and I went to go
to the mail box and passed him as he was preparing a
very large book order, one of each book and it really
surprised me that Wayne was wrapping each book in
plastic wrap. I made a comment about it and he said, "
I always WRAP the books." I knew he wrapped the books,
but never noticed that each one was individually
wrapped. That word hit my spirit strongly since I had
already spent the day pondering the word “wrapping.”
RAVIOLI’S ARE WRAPPINGS
I had a dream about raviolis and lettuce today. It was
a private dream, and so I am only giving what is
quickened as appropriate to share.
The word ravioli comes from the
Italian verb ravvolgere, meaning "to
Definitions of wrap on the Web:

"wrap the baby before taking her out"; "Wrap the
cloak that is folded or wrapped around a
a sandwich in which the filling is rolled
up in a soft tortilla

I realized there was a pattern in the dream:
The boxes I saw in the dream were wrapped in brown
The salad was wrapped in clear plastic bags at Costco.
The raviolis were wrapped in clear plastic bags.
The way these all were wrapped were a focus in the
dream. That was a 3 fold witness.
As I was pondering the above revelation I also
1) boxes themselves are a wrapping for what is
2) ravilios are a wrapping for the meat that is
UPDATE 4/14/07: Pastor prayed in the prayer
room, “...like prophets wrap themselves in blankets.”
He was calling on the Lord to hover over us with His
blanket and protect us with His covering.
UPDATE PRECIOUS WORD! 4/21/07 SEALED
I'm not sure how this fits in, but when I saw the title
"sealed and protected" I had to share it because it
My daughter (who is 2 1/2) handed me a round cover to a
vitamin that I take -- the piece that you take off the
top so you know that no one has tampered with the bottle
before you take what's in it. She said, "Jesus, Mommy."
I dismissed it as her giving me a piece of trash and put
Later that day, she came up to me again and handed it to
me and said, "Jesus, Mommy." I thought, why is she
saying Jesus about this scrap of paper?
Then when I looked at what it had printed on it, over
and over again, I knew. It said, "Sealed for your
protection." Then I realized it was God's way of telling
me that although I feel under attack, I've been sealed
by the Holy Spirit and I'm under His protection -- and
what He has deposited in me cannot be contaminated by my
"In Him you also trusted, after you heard the word of
truth, the gospel of your salvation; in whom also,
having believed, you were sealed with the Holy Spirit of
promise" (Eph. 1:13).
Thank you for sharing that beautiful and awesome Word
with us! I will never again look at those little bottle
sealings without hearing her precious voice remind us of
His beloved promise, that He has sealed us for
protection!!! How marvelous are His Words to us!

In that hour Jesus rejoiced in the Spirit and said, "I
thank You, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that You
have hidden these things from the wise and prudent and
revealed them to babes.
