PRE-SERVICE PRAYER 7/28/07 SIFTED LIKE WHEAT
Before prayer started, it was reported that one of our
intercessors had been in travail this last week over
seeing the tide be sucked out and people were being
carried out to sea. Pastor had felt it was hopelessness
and despair and so we prayed over this.
HEARD: Dont let go. Rip tide. Covenant.
PIX: I saw bells on the bottom of a robe as
pastor walked past me praying.
Ex 39:24-26 NLT
Bells of pure gold were placed between the
pomegranates along the hem of the robe, with bells and
pomegranates alternating all around the hem. This robe
was to be worn when Aaron ministered to the LORD, just
as the LORD had commanded Moses.
During my prayers over the hopeless and despairing
people I was asking for the Lord’s mercy and also that
the Lord to remind them of His goodness. One of the
scriptures I prayed was that Jesus went about doing
healing all that were oppressed by the devil, for God
was with Him.
Acts 10:37-39 NKJV
...how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy
Spirit and with power, who went about doing good and
healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was
Ps 27:13-14 NKJV
I would have lost heart, unless I had believed
that I would see the goodness of the LORD In the land of
the living. Wait on the LORD; Be of good courage,
and He shall strengthen your heart; Wait, I say, on the
PRECIOUS VISION: One of our intercessors was
taken up and saw a huge pair of hands and a little tiny
person walking around on the hands. Then he saw the
person back down walking around on the earth. He saw
that the Lord was watching over every detail of his life
and nothing was happening that the Lord was not aware
of. He said that the Lord was emphasizing that He is
the God of details.
He shared a story with us that he and his 4 year old
daughter were praying over the day. And then they had a
quiet time to listen to the Lord. After the quiet time,
he asked her if the Lord told her anything. She said,
“Yes. God said, Fear not, I am with you!”
He was amazed. She had never talked like that before.
He knew it was God.
PIX: After he shared this, I saw a pix of a
pupil and a little person walking inside the pupil.
CONFIRMATION EYE GLANCE: When I looked up my eye
glanced at a map on the wall. It had circle rings
extending further out from a center point. The map
looked like a giant eye with the center looking like a
lake that represented the apple of His eye.
Zech 2:8-9 NKJV
For thus says the LORD of hosts: "He sent Me after
glory, to the nations which plunder you; for he who
touches you touches the apple of His eye.
VISION DURING CHURCH: We were placing our hands
out in front of us and giving all that we were burdened
over to the Lord. I saw a pair of hands cup my hand and
pull it all away and shake it as though it was a pair of
dice inside the hand. It was very strange to me, and I
rebuked it feeling it might not be the Lord. I cried
out to the Lord that He would be merciful in all that is
shaking. I still had my hand my hands out and I saw the
vision repeated again on the other hand. I was really
disturbed by this picture. When the pair of hands
uncupped to reveal what was inside, I saw a dice. It
had the number 8 on it. I understood that meant a new
beginning after the double portion shaking. But the
shaking and the dice bothered me, I did not know if this
was a demonic vision or a pure one.
STRONG CONFIRMATION: I had no idea what pastor
was going to preach on. He preached on the fact that
satan appeared before the throne of God, just like he
did Job and requested permission to sift Peter like
wheat. Pastor mentioned the phrase “Dont let go to your
faith.” And that was what I heard in the pre-prayer,
Dont let go!
Luke 22:31-32 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
Job 1:6-12 NKJV
Now there was a day when the sons of God came to
present themselves before the LORD, and Satan also came
among them. 7 And the LORD said to Satan , "From where
do you come?" So Satan answered the LORD and said,
"From going to and fro on the earth, and from walking
back and forth on it." 8 Then the LORD said to Satan ,
"Have you considered My servant Job, that there is none
like him on the earth, a blameless and upright man, one
who fears God and shuns evil?"
9 So Satan answered the LORD and said, "Does Job
fear God for nothing? 10 Have You not made a hedge
around him, around his household, and around all that he
has on every side? You have blessed the work of his
hands, and his possessions have increased in the land.
11 But now, stretch out Your hand and touch all that he
has, and he will surely curse You to Your face!" 12 And
the LORD said to Satan , "Behold, all that he has is in
your power; only do not lay a hand on his person."
So Satan went out from the presence of the LORD.

UNDERSTANDING: I was pondering my vision as
pastor was preaching. It was strongly impressed upon my
heart that it was a warning. It came to me that the
sooner My people stop gambling with their conscience,
the sooner the shaking would be over and a new beginning
would be waiting for them. I was very warned through
this and made a commitment to be very scrupulous over
obeying all whims of my conscience and walking in the
fear of the Lord.
WORD TO PONDER: OBEDIENCE WILL QUIET YOUR SHAKING
Beloved one, during the harvest of all that is ripe on
the earth, you know all that can be shaken will be
shaken. Sometimes threshing the grain from the chaff is
a violent process. Do not be caught in the rip tide of
those who are being drawn from their faith, from their
holdings in My Word. Hold on tight and do not let go of
My promises. Walk close to Me and remain obedient to
your conscience. Align yourself with My Word and you
will walk in peace.
My eye is always on you, you are the very center core of
My thoughts and heart to keep you. I watch over every
detail of your life. Your faith is important to your
stability. I have prayed for you that your faith not
fail. Do not give reason for the adversary to reproach
and always remember that whatever is not of faith ... is
This is a time for men to acknowledge that what they
sow, they reap and the results will teach them to fear
Me. Repent of gambling with your conscience, of stepping
over the boundaries of safety and dabbling with
carnality. The sooner you stop gambling in unscriptural
choices, the sooner the shakings will stop and a brand
new beginning is waiting for you with My loving mercy.
Heb 12:25-29 NLT
See to it that you obey God, the one who is speaking
to you. For if the people of Israel did not escape when
they refused to listen to Moses, the earthly messenger,
how terrible our danger if we reject the One who speaks
to us from heaven! When God spoke from Mount Sinai his
voice shook the earth, but now he makes another promise:
"Once again I will shake not only the earth but the
heavens also." This means that the things on earth
will be shaken, so that only eternal things will be
left. Since we are receiving a Kingdom that cannot be
destroyed, let us be thankful and please God by
worshiping him with holy fear and awe. For our God is a
