In the last vision, the caboose was loosed from The Kingdom Train. With this caboose gone, warfare ceased, the past now became dim to those in the last train car. These turned, now facing forward; anticipating a new call from God. The first part of this call came swiftly and surely: “Come up here,” our Lord commanded. “Here” was the engine room where our King Jesus, Yeshua HaMashiach, engineered the train. The Lord continued, “I set before you an open door” (Revelation 3:8,4:1).
At this command, those in the last car only, raced forward through car after car. Each door between cars flew open before these and all continued, as little children, running joyfully toward the engine room.
Soon they saw Jesus on one knee; arms outstretched, anxious to sweep each one unto His hungry, heartfelt embrace. One after another literally jumped into His arms; reveling in His love. His arms encircled these humble, child-like Believers, drawing each closely to His heart.
While on board the Kingdom Train, seated in the last train car with others, I heard two things from the Lord. First He said:
“Those who were against you are now behind you.”
I turned to see behind us and saw a jolly looking red caboose. Those inside the caboose were having a wonderful time talking to one another, laughing, and busily milling around in the caboose. There was one problem, however. They were so absorbed in themselves and what they were doing that they were oblivious to the Lord’s direction. They weren’t listening to Him at all! They were also speaking against others; God‘s anointed servants.
Because of this, the second directive was to those who were in the last train car closest to the caboose. He said:
“Pull the pin and loose the caboose.”
This was very difficult to do emotionally, for we knew what would happen! We knew the ones in the caboose would not go towards the Heavenly Throne of our Father, but instead, would slide backwards; landing on the very bottom of the track.
In a recent vision, I saw a “Kingdom Train.” The presence of the King lay heavily upon and within it. Glory streamed from each car. While on this train, I began to hear from the Lord for His people. First of all, He spoke three basic truths:
The Place: The train was moving on a single track heading North, straight as an arrow for the Throne of God.
The Passengers: The people on the train were all Believers in Yeshua; mature disciples of King Jesus. While on the train, all were carried completely “in Him.”
The Principle: The Divine engineer, with absolute authority over each disciple, was the Lord Jesus, Yeshua HaMashiach, Himself.
I am sending My latter rain to the earth, for it has had the former rain lightly. This rain is for growth upward. The latter rain will now fall. It is for maturation of the fruit. As a husbandman waiteth for the crops to mature, so I have waited, lo, all these years until now–for now is the time My Bride will mature and shine forth in the Kingdom of My Father. As she arises and shines, I will send another shower of blessing upon My people. It will be the double blessing of the former rain and latter rain upon the people. I am positioning My people right now to receive this rain. When they do, they will very quickly grow stable roots downward and bear fruit upwards.
Therefore be patient, brethren, until the coming of the Lord. See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, waiting patiently for it until it receives the early and latter rain. You also be patient. Establish your hearts, for the coming of the Lord is at hand. (James 5:7-10)
Off to Israel with this beautiful, positive Word. Our first meeting in the land of Israel was with Bridges for Peace. They loved the picture for the new immigrants (Olim in Hebrew) that daughter Debbie brought. We finished meeting the staff at their main headquarters in Jerusalem, then drove with Terry, the head of the organization, to their distribution headquarters. It was a cloudy, rainy day. “This rain is very unusual. This is a latter rain. We don’t usually have rain after Passover. It is very significant,” Terry explained.
“This is the generation of them that seek Him, who seek the face of the God of Jacob” (Psalm 24:6, RSV)
As we know, those who seek FIND. Here we go. . .
The scene opened in a large cathedral or synagogue. The occasion was the wedding supper of the Lamb. First came the wedding ceremony. Guests streamed in through open doors and down the center aisle.
Jesus (Yeshua) stood at the altar. All the guests came forward to greet Him. Each responded to Him in the primary way they knew Him. To some, He was Lord and they bowed before Him. With great appreciation, He received their worship. To others, He was Commander and Chief. They saluted. He saluted back and gave them their “orders.” To many, He was provider. They prayed. He gladly answered their prayers! Each one was acknowledged and loved by Jesus.
