FUNNY 1/1/05: Today was I very busy, engrossed in a lot of task oriented details. My emails were downloading and an urgent message came through to communicate. I put aside all my stuff to answer and I heard the Lord say very clearly,

HEARD: I brake for elephants!

This was hilarious to me. I love it when He talks to me in parable form. I have rhema about elephants representing intercessors, because elephants are burden bearers. It just so happened that this email came from a couple that were very dear to me and also prophetic intercessors.

For those of you who are scratching your head, there are bumper stickers that people have on the back of their car bumpers and occasionally you will see one that says, I brake for… and then they fill in the blank with whatever. It is a way of saying that this car puts on the brakes with everything on hold for a certain priority. When God says He brakes for the elephant burden bearers, this is a very special Word!


COOL PARABLE: Wayne told me today about watching a documentary on elephants. He talked about 2 elephants raising one child, the mother and the aunt. When the elephants migrate and stop to rest, the two walk around the baby in a circle to trample all the grass so a snake cannot come into the circle unaware. Then they each stand watch facing the opposite direction, with the baby between them.

I saw this not only as a parable of the intercessors carefully guarding what they have birthed. I also saw the parable that as they each face the opposite direction, each one is given a different view point..


HEARD: It first started to rain. Then it rained harder.

VISION: I saw a mountain sticking deep into the ground. Then I saw that it turned into a tooth with the root buried and the tip pointing up to the sky.

Ps 132:17-18 KJV

There will I make the horn {7161} of David to bud: I have ordained a lamp for mine anointed. His enemies will I clothe with shame: but upon himself shall his crown flourish.

Ezek 29:21 KJV

In that day will I cause the horn {7161} of the house of Israel to bud forth, and I will give thee the opening of the mouth in the midst of them; and they shall know that I am the LORD.



qeren (keh'-ren); from OT:7160; a horn (as projecting); by implication, a flask, cornet; by resembl. AN ELEPHANT'S TOOTH (i.e. ivory), a corner (of the altar), a peak (of a mountain), a ray (of light); figuratively, power:

KJV - X hill, horn.

VISION: I saw the word Faith written out.

HEARD: Agreement. Thy kingdom coming in.

With all that goes on around Me, and all that I do on earth and in heaven, I bow My ear low and listen. What you have to say, My Beloved intercessor, is important to Me. I stop to listen, yes, to you. I cherish your words of innocent trust, even when you have not seen Me. I AM impacted to hear your words of courage even when you do not hear My voice. I AM deeply moved when in spite of all that you have gone through in your testings, schooling and persecutions, you have chosen to stay faithful and committed to believing in My goodness and My Papa's heart for you. Yes, My dear child, I stop and listen. Your faith has touched Me more than you could possibly know. It is your gift to Me, as you lean on Me for your sustenance, strength and support. How MUCH I love you, dear one, how very, very much. Thank you.

Mal 3:16 NLT

Then those who feared the LORD spoke with each other, and the LORD listened to what they said. In his presence, a scroll of remembrance was written to record the names of those who feared him and loved to think about him.

Ps 139:6 NLT

LORD, you have examined my heart and know everything about me. You know when I sit down or stand up. You know my every thought when far away. You chart the path ahead of me and tell me where to stop and rest. Every moment you know where I am.

You know what I am going to say even before I say it, LORD. You both precede and follow me. You place your hand of blessing on my head. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me, too great for me to know!






I had a friend send me the following dream today:


“This morning I had a short, but very vivid dream. I was with a herd of running elephants, riding on the back of one. It did not have a saddle or anything like that. Just a rope to hold on to. It did not seem like a harness for steering... really just a way to not fall off. It seemed very powerful, as you may imagine a herd of running elephants would be.”


SANDY COMMENT: Elephants represent the burden bearers, ones who bear great weight in His kingdom. They are a family and migrate long distances together. When one dies, they mourn and linger for a long time until they are finally able to let go. It takes 2 females to raise one baby. Usually the second is an adopted aunt who is usually the sister of the mother. If not an aunt, then another adoptive mother. When on migrations and it is time to rest, the 2 walk in a circle, flattening the grass and then they stand guard back to back and the baby lays down in the grass at their feet to rest.


When my son was young, I had rhema about dancing pink elephants and Anna had heard they had their tu-tus on. (Those are the little fluffy short skirts that little ballerinas wear, they are made out of colored netting.) There was one time when my son and his friend were about 7 or 8 and on our way to a camping trip. They were in the back seat talking about the clouds in the sky. One saw an elephant with a tu-tu on in the sky. They had no idea about my rhema. I was a gasp. It was so delightful I laughed a long time about that. Only God can think of dancing elephants.


Elephants have strong legs, built like pillars to STAND. That is the main ingredient in warfare, is to learn to stand. Even as a baby I have always had strong and heavy legs. I love it when the Lord talks to me with His sense of humor, and I had one entry where He wanted to know if I had ever seen an elephant in a bathing suit? A few years later I was trying to learn how to bowl with John and Wayne. I was walking up to the line with all the grace I could muster and suddenly that picture of an elephant in a bathing suit came back to me. That is EXACTLY how I felt, waddling up to the line. I burst out laughing and totally threw a gutter ball. I laughed so hard, I was a gonner.


I saw a documentary once where some migrated to another island. It showed them swimming in a bay like area. It was incredible. They are beautiful swimmers. It is the one time where they do not feel the burden of carrying so much. They have beautiful motion in the water and don't feel the gravity. It is a good parable that when the burden bearers are in the water/ Presence of the Lord they don't feel the pressure and gravity of what they carry.


The body of Christ really doesn't understand the term intercessor. They think loud and frequent bombing of heaven. But that is not true. Some intercessors might carry the weight of believing the Word of the Lord their whole life, faithfully stand and resist every obstacle that would suggest the opposite, and yet maybe only pray one prayer in regards to that matter. It is not the prayer so much as it is the sure stubborn grit to believe. Intercession is a mediator position, standing like a bridge between 2 places. It can be heaven and earth, it can be between 2 people or 2 issues. Intercession is being faithful to stand in the gap, that place in between until there is a safe place to cross over and connect or resolve the burden.



I AM the Lord Your God in the midst of you. I dwell in the midst of unified intercession. Even as elephants walk trunk to tail along the vast trails of migration, I send you to walk similar paths of intercession. In your journeys you shall walk to and fro and the paths of your feet shall encircle those within. Like those within the walls that Nehemiah raised, all will benefit and dwell within the safety away from the false accusations, the mockers, and those that would slander the work of God.


In the process of building this wall, I shall give you gifts to evaluate the work needing to be done. I shall equip you to do the work, and I shall set your hands to work within the seasons of My own time table. I AM like the king who released Nehemiah to do the work, sent the letters of endorsement and protection and gave all the supplies needed. He lacked nothing, neither will you. Even the laborers had the heart to join raise up the walls. Each man shall build the wall in front of his own family, and together they link arms and build the circle of unity. I will establish watchman to warn and warriors to guard even as they build. Together the walls will raise and all who live within shall remain in safety.


“And whatever more may be needed for the house of your God, which you may have occasion to provide, pay for it from the king's treasury.” (Ezra 7:20 NKJV)




I will always love you and never leave you





The very same day my friend sent me the above dream about riding an elephant, I received a strong confirmation that the Lord was speaking to me about elephants.


SAME DAY ELEPHANT CONFIRMATION 5/11/06: I just had the funniest thing happen to me. It was one of those prophetic gesture things that He does through me. I was walking in our back yard along the red tiles. There were round stones that were on the tiles, so I was kicking and brushing them off with my sandals so the tiles would be pretty and smooth. I was thinking about being an elephant at the time, and the above dream. Just as I got to the other end of clearing the pathway, I was staring down at my feet and thinking about how Breakthrough angel removes the stumbling stones from our path, as shared by Randy Demain and Bob Jones.


Then as I looked at my feet I vaguely remembered a past vision about seeing an elephant's foot on one of our red tiles! I could hardly wait to find this, I KNEW God was saying something to me. Before I found the rhema from 2003, I took a photo of our yard. I did all of this without knowing what the rhema would say. He is SO sovereign and lives outside of time!! This is so precious!



PIX: I saw the spotlight menu on the PhotoImpact program and I was adjusting the light on the photo.


[Lord just exactly what are You spotlighting?]

HEARD: I AM not leaving you. Ever.


PIX: I saw an elephant walking along the red tiles on our pathway.


HEARD: That path is marked. My path.


HEARD: The first line of the song, I will always love you.


[Thank You so much Lord.]

HEARD; You're on the path. You are welcome.



No not ever. Never, never will I leave you. You are not alone, I AM here with you always, even when you hear nothing and your eyes see nothing.


Your path is clearly marked and you are stepping carefully upon the stones so lovingly planted for you. These are memorial stones of faith which are planted there by My prophets. They have walked the road before you and their lives are living intercessions. What they overcome, they keep and plant as memorials of faith that your way will be well marked and kept.


So even when the dust clouds stir a sudden whip and your eyes are temporarily blinded, do not fear. Even when you face loss and seemingly defeat, I have seen to it that you are safe and never left alone, not for even one moment. Rest dear child, rest in My Sovereign plan for your life. We win. You are on the right team. Always, always My child. I AM always with you.


“...teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age." (Matt 28:20 NKJV)



UPDATE COMMENT: When I heard the first line of the song, here is the rhema behind that song:





This song was given to Joe in 1992, who lost his wife, his job, his health, his money, his friends, due to receiving the Baptism of the Holy Spirit. He had a chance to keep it all but only if he renounced what the Lord had given him, but he remained faithful. As a result, he became suicidal, hopeless and wanted to die.


That above information was prophetically given to Graham Cooke in a meeting and Graham prophesied that the Lord would come to him in the night and sing a song over him that would save his life. And it would save the life of countless lives and become a classic song on earth and heaven. A few nights later he woke to the Presence of the Lord and many angels filling his room. He heard the audible voice of the Lord sing this song over him, and his heart melted, finally broke and cried, and then healed. The Lord told him to go downstairs and write the song. After he wrote the chords, he heard the Lord sing the words to him one more time as he wrote them down.


CHORUS: I will always love you, I will always love you, I will always love you, yes I will. I always will.




I loved you long before you found Me. And then you gave your life to Me.


But should one day you turn and walk away,


I will always love you, I will always love you, I will always love you, yes I will. I always will.


My love will never cease to hold you. But should I have a change of heart.


It is because my heart has ceased to beat.


I will always love you, I will always love you, I will always love you, yes I will. I always will.


When all around you see the darkness. When you have looked through the depths,


No pit is so deep I'm not deeper still.


I will always love you, I will always love you, I will always love you, yes I will. I always will.


And when the day has almost ended. When evening comes and walls you in.


When there is no one else to comfort you.


I will always love you, I will always love you, I will always love you, yes I will. I always will.


Here are My arms for you to melt in. Here are My wings where you can hide.


Here are the tears that I have cried for you.


I will always love you, I will always love you, I will always love you, yes I will. I always will.


My love is constant as the sunrise. As changeless as the stars at night,


My child as sure as the turning tide,


I will always love you, I will always love you, I will always love you, yes I will. I always will.


I will always love you, I will always love you, I will always love you, yes I will. I always will.


I will always love you, I will always love you, I will always love you, yes I will. I always will.




UPDATE COMMENT: In hindsight, this was an even more precious Word to me than I realized. In October of 2003, I was dining with my family in a train car. It was an restaurant that used old train cars as its dining room. The acoustics in the car was very noisy, and it was filled with happy chatters. All of a sudden there was like a bubble that encircled me and all sound went void. At the same moment I heard the audible voice of the Lord. (It was booming, but it was actually the inner audible voice, since no one else heard Him.) He said very emphatically, “I WILL NEVER, NEVER LEAVE YOU.” I AM with you!!!


I was astonished. His voice was booming and I looked around at my family, and they were still all talking to one another at the round table. My world had just been rocked, and they knew nothing! As soon as my hearing came back to normal and I could hear all the chatter in the train car, the first thing I said back to the Lord was this: “WHY? Whose dying?”


I was so insecure as to why He would suddenly show up and tell me this, and in a train car at dinner!!!!


During that year, I went through really tough soul surgeries and I was going through radical death to self.


However, it is really precious that the Lord would bring this all back to me now, 5/11/06. One week after the Lord brought back this old rhema about the elephant, and my just now walking the path and taking a photo of it, then finding the rhema about I will never leave you, and I will always love you...... We had some family crisis'. My mom went into the hospital with heart problems. My dad was diagnosed with cancer and Wayne's Mom had 2 back surgeries. Nothing like falling apart at the seams! Our world was pretty shaking for a while. When things looked the worst, the Lord reminded me of His audible voice and it was such a deep, deep comfort to me.


Now as an update, my Mom's heart is now stable. Wayne's Mom's back surgeries were a success and they got all the cancer in my dad's surgery. We are all relieved and blessed to have our loved ones.
