Dreams from the LORD 2011-2014
19 April 2014

Last night I had a dream where I was walking down this highway.  There were mountains in the background—it looked like Jackson, Wyoming.  Then I noticed this big sign near the highway on the side of this hill.  The sign read:  “New Jerusalem and New Shiloh Tim Shey”.

New Jerusalem

Revelation 21: 1-3:  “And I saw a new heaven and a new earth:  for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.  And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.  And I hear a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.”

Revelation 21: 22-24:  “And I saw no temple therein:  for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it.  And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine it it:  for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof [New Jerusalem is a spiritual city where purified believers live].”

New Shiloh

Genesis 49: 8-12:  “Judah [Judaeo-Christianity], thou art he whom they brethren shall praise:  thy hand shall be in the neck of thine enemies; thy father’s children shall bow down before thee.  Judah is a lion’s welp:  from the prey, my son, thou art gone up: he stooped down, he couched as a lion, and as an old lion; who shall rouse him up?  The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh [the Messiah] come; and unto him shall the gathering of the people be.  Binding his foal unto the vine, and his ass’s colt unto the choice vine [Lamb of God; Matthew 21: 1-11]; he washed his garments in wine, and his clothes in the blood of grapes [the shedding of blood at Calvary–death and resurrection of Jesus Christ]:  His eyes shall be red with wine [holy anger against the wicked], and his teeth white with milk [Lion of the Tribe of Judah, New Shiloh; Wrath of God; Second Coming–a personal experience for purified believers].”

Ezekiel 21:27:  “I will overturn, overturn, overturn, it: and it shall be no more, until he come whose right it is; and I will give it him.”

I have read this scripture (Genesis 49: 1) many times over the years, but the phrase “last days” hit me like a ton of bricks. I believe the last days began when Jesus died and rose from the dead.

Genesis 49: 1: “And Jacob called unto his sons, and said, Gather yourselves together, that I may tell you that which shall befall you in the last days.”

Daniel 12: 4: “But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end:  many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.”

Daniel 12: 9: “And he said, Go thy way, Daniel:  for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end.”

After the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, we have this scripture in the New Testament:

Revelation 1: 1-3:  “The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and signified it by his angel unto his servant John:   Who bare record of the word of God, and of the testimony of Jesus Christ, and of all things that he saw.   Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein:  for the time is at hand.”

The Second Coming   1 comment

New Jerusalem is a spiritual city

I remember the morning that I asked Christ into my life. I walked over to the window of my bedroom and looked outside. I then did a 360, turning and looking around at the walls of my bedroom, then returning back to the window.It was the last week of July in 1982 that I asked Jesus Christ into my life. I was working on my dad’s cattle farm in Iowa. I had been suicidal since the age of fifteen. My dad put me in a mental hospital for several days earlier that summer. He had me pay the hospital bill. The psychiatrist diagnosed me as suffering from depression and gave me some medication which didn’t do any good.

I said something like, “There is nothing on this planet; there is no reason for me to be here.” I was really sick of living and daydreamed of blowing my brains out with a gun.

I then walked over to my bed and got on my knees and said, “Christ, if you are God, will you please come into my life.” It was the toughest prayer I have ever prayed in my life. I don’t know why, but I didn’t feel the Presence of God until three days later. I knew I had eternal life.

For the next three or four years, I went through a time of great tribulation (purification). It was very unpleasant and I still struggled with suicidal thoughts. This was a time of dying to self (I am still dying to self) and letting the Lord have His way with me. He was pruning my vine and it was very painful.

During this three or four years of tribulation, I spent time in three more mental hospitals. This one psychiatrist diagnosed me as manic-depressive. I had to pay another $4,000.00 in hospital bills (this wiped out my hard-earned life savings). My dad later told me that he paid for all of these hospital bills. If I have any integrity in me, it sure didn’t come from my dad.

In October of 1985, I prayed another prayer of desperation. I said, “Lord, either You are going to heal me of manic-depression or else I am going to blow my brains out.” Less than three months later, my faith in Jesus Christ healed me of manic-depression (demonic bondage). This healing began on the 7th of January in 1986 at a monastery in Nebraska.

I drove back home and told my parents that the Lord healed me of manic-depression. Their reaction was very unfavorable. My dad occasionally would mock me and make fun of me and ask me if I was still on my medication (I was on lithium and a low dosage of an anti-psychotic, which didn’t do much good) (I told them that I was getting off of my medication). The mocking by my dad got so bad, that for three days during Easter Week–Thursday, Friday and Saturday–I had this hot, searing pain in my hands, my feet, my side and there was a circle of pain around my head. It was very painful; it really wore me out. I was working on my dad’s farm and it was very painful to walk and driving the tractor was difficult. On Easter Sunday, the pain was gone.

When one door closes, another door opens. My family did not receive my powerful testimony of healing, so I left my dad’s farm in April of 1986. Eventually I started hitchhiking around the western United States. Being healed of manic-depression and having a sound, healthy mind was absolutely liberating. It was like I had been born again all over again. My hitchhiking led me to central Washington.

In September of 1986, I was living at a Christian hostel in Ellensburg, Washington. It was then that the Lord came to me a Second Time (The Second Coming). Since September of 1986, there has been a constant burning in my forehead (the Presence of God).

Within a week of experiencing The Second Coming, I was attacked by the devil. All day long, there was this evil presence all over me; it was like someone had put a heavy blanket of oppression on me. I got very angry and shouted, “In the Name of Jesus Christ, begone, Satan!” Suddenly, the evil presence was gone. It was such a relief. Praise the Lord!

The Second Coming has been happening to purified vessels (I am still being purified; the Lord is still delivering me of demons) since after the death and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ. I believe that the first man to experience The Second Coming was the Apostle John.

John 21: 20-23: “Then Peter, turning about, seeth the disciple whom Jesus loved following; which also leaned on his breast at supper, and said, Lord, which is he that betrayeth thee? Peter seeing him saith to Jesus, Lord, and what shall this man do? Jesus saith unto him, If I will that he tarry till I come, what is that to thee? follow thou me. Then went this saying abroad among the brethren, that that disciple should not die: yet Jesus said not unto him, He shall not die; but, If I will that he tarry till I come, what is that to thee?”

I have been living in New Jerusalem (it is a spiritual city) since September of 1986. I am very grateful for what the Lord has done in my life.

“The Kingdom comes not with observation.”

[The Kingdom of Heaven is not seen by our physical eyes, it is perceived in our spirit by the power of the Holy Ghost in spiritual (purified, dead to self) believers.  Also, I would like to add, that The Second Coming IS NOT the Baptism of the Holy Ghost with the evidence of speaking in tongues.  I was baptized in the Holy Ghost with the evidence of speaking in tongues in September of 1988–two years after Jesus came to me spiritually The Second Time.]

I Thessalonians 2: 19:  “Are not even ye in the presence of our Lord Jesus Christ at his coming?”

Chapter IX
“A Visit to the Southern Counties Which Ends in Launceston Jail”
1655-1656

“While I was in prison here, the Baptists and Fifth-monarchy men prophesied that this year Christ should come, and reign upon earth a thousand years. And they looked upon this reign to be outward: when He was come inwardly in the hearts of His people, to reign and rule; where these professors* would not receive Him. So they failed in their prophecy and expectation, and had not the possession of Him. But Christ is come, and doth dwell and reign in the hearts of His people. Thousands, at the door of whose hearts He hath been knocking have opened to Him, and He is come in, and doth sup with them, and they with Him; the heavenly supper with the heavenly and spiritual man. So many of these Baptists and Monarchy-people turned the greatest enemies to the followers of Christ; but He reigns in the hearts of His saints over all their envy.”

*professor–someone who professes to be a Christian, but is not really saved. Someone who has Christ in his head, but rejects Christ in his spirit. Outward (false) salvation versus inward (true) salvation: “The letter kills [outward], but the Spirit gives life [inward].”

Chapter XIV
“Labors, Dangers and Sufferings”
1661-1662

“But I told them that the whore was alive in them, and was not burned with God’s fire, nor judged in them with the same power and Spirit the Apostles were in; and that their looking for Christ’s coming outwardly to set up His kingdom was like the Pharisees’ ‘Lo here,’ and ‘Lo there.’ But Christ was come, and had set up His kingdom above sixteen hundred years ago, according to Nebuchadnezzar’s dream and Daniel’s prophecy, and He had dashed to pieces the four monarchies, the great image, with its head of gold, breast and arms of silver, belly and thighs of brass, legs of iron, and its feet part of iron part of clay; and they were all blown away with God’s wind, as the chaff in the summer threshing-floor.”

Chapter XVII
“At the Work of Organizing”
1667-1670

“Whilst I was under this spiritual suffering the state of the New Jerusalem which comes down out of heaven was opened to me; which some carnal-minded people had looked upon to be like an outward city dropped out of the elements. I saw the beauty and glory of it, the length, the breadth, and the height thereof, all in complete proportion. I saw that all who are within the Light of Christ, and in His faith, of which He is the author; and in the Spirit, the Holy Ghost, which Christ and the holy prophets and apostles were in; and within the grace, and truth, and power of God, which are the walls of the city; — I saw that such are within the city, are members of it, and have right to eat of the Tree of Life, which yields her fruit every month, and whose leaves are for the healing of the nations.

“Many things more did I see concerning the heavenly city, the New Jerusalem, which are hard to be uttered, and would be hard to be received. But, in short, this holy city is within the Light, and all that are within the Light, are within the city; the gates whereof stand open all the day (for there is no night there), that all may come in.”

II Timothy 3: 5: Having a form of godliness [the outward appearance of godliness; man-made liturgies, rituals, rules and ordinances that feed the pride of carnal man], but denying the power thereof [the power of the Holy Ghost, spiritual leadings, perceptions; the life lived by a spiritual, dead-to-self man]: from such turn away.”

Below is a comment by Jerry Collins that is right on target when describing The Second Coming.  Jerry Collins’ comment is #20 on the post “Is the Japan Earthquake in Bible Prophecy”.

  • “I agree with the notes posted on 7/15/2011 by the filter. Jesus did indeed tell his disciples that there were some standing there that would see the kingdom come before they died. Please note that Jesus was asked about the kingdom and responded “the kingdom of God cometh not with observation (you can’t see it) neither shall you say lo here or lo there for behold, the kingdom of God is within you”. This is really clear don’t you think? The kingdom is a spiritual kingdom and can’t be seen. The point most people miss is that the kingdom did come just as he said (in their lifetime). Read acts 2 and you will find that Peter did not say this is similar to what the prophets predicted, but he said “this IS THAT which was spoken by the prophet Joel that it will come to pass IN THE LAST DAYS that I will pour out my spirit on all flesh…” The last days according to Peter were right then and any other interpretation would call Peter’s statement untrue.  The last days simply meant the end of the first covenant and the start of the new whereby we can all (Jews and gentiles alike) enter the kingdom. This is why in Colossians Paul stated that “he HATH (already) translated us into THE KINGDOM OF HIS DEAR SON”. If Paul could get into the kingdom then, why are we still looking for his kingdom? Jesus also said ” My kingdom is not of this world”; should we deny that he knew what he was talking about. Another thought … in Matthew 24 Jesus was talking directly to HIS DISCIPLES and them ALONE! He never even hinted that anything he spoke about would happen thousands of years later. Read this for yourself and see if this is not true. He never said the frequency of earthquakes meant a sign of anything… same about famines, pestilence, etc. He simply said these are the beginning of sorrows. All this stuff about these things being signs of the last days is false and manmade, it is not in Matthew 24. If you don’t believe this, show me THE VERSE that says other wise. Also read Matthew 24 verse 34 which clearly says “THIS GENERATION (the one they were living in) shall not pass till ALL these things be fulfilled. There are 15 other places where Jesus used the phrase “this generation or a wicked and adulterous generation” and no one has any doubt that he meant the one present at that time, yet people try to twist his words to fit their purpose. I will take the words of Christ over any theologian any day. Jesus was describing the destruction of the temple and the end of the Jews as the covenant people not some end of the world scenario.  (As a matter of fact, the Bible never mentions the end of time; Daniel calls it The time of the end. The end of what? Genesis 8 says God will never again destroy every living thing. All these rapture theories describe everyone except the raptured ones being killed contrary to God’s word.)  I know that many will disregard this because they have always been taught otherwise; please take this test (as a dear friend and minister used to tell me)… Don’t take my word for it, read it for yourself and see if everything I have said is true.  God bless you all and I pray you too will be translated into his kingdom while here on earth.”

Dreams from the LORD 2003-2006
31 March 2005

James 4: 4: “Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? Whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.”

Whenever I think of the word adulterer or adulteress or adultery, I think of sexual sin. But if a man loves the world, chases after the things of the world, is conformed to the world, he is an adulterer pure and simple. Pure adultery is absolute impurity pure and simple. The world is always bombarding us with lies and images: temptations through the media (visual, audio, print), public education systems or through the mouth of an unbeliever. It is a daily struggle to keep us unspotted from the world, to be unadulterated from the dirt of the world. As long as we have a submitted heart to the Lord, He will protect us. James 4: 7: “Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.”

I have always loved this verse: James 4: 8: “Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you.” There should be a daily yearning for God, a daily abiding in God. I meet people who say, “I was saved thirty years ago” and they are still baby Christians. So you have been a baby Christian for thirty years: how does that glorify God? Someone graduates from the first grade: does that mean he is educated? No. Graduating from the first grade is part of that lifelong process called education. I have met people with college degrees who I thought were semi-illiterate idiots. Just because you have a college degree does not mean that you are educated; it probably means that you are indoctrinated with liberal (satanic) ideology.

Being born again is important, but staying at a first grade conversion level of spirituality for thirty or forty or fifty years really does not glorify God. Throw away the milk bottle—draw nigh to God—and begin partaking of the meat of the Word. Christians who are not drawing nigh to God every day are lazy and complacent. We are to grow deeper in Christ: we are not to make a tomb or a whitewashed wall out of salvation. To some people, salvation is another excuse for idolatry or putting God in a box. Get out of the box and get into New Jerusalem.
