Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour in which the Son of Man is coming. (Matthew 25:13 AKJV)
Jesus is saying that all of this is about His second coming. His audience at the time had no knowledge of the “catching away,” which some Christians call the rapture. That was revealed by Paul in the first letter he wrote to the Thessalonians where he mentioned it in every chapter. This audience only knew that He would come to rule and reign forever.
God has told us that we are entering a time of correction for His church (Waves Breaking Over Barriers in San Francisco). This sign will be of great importance. Our Lord gave a parable which will identify where we are in His eternal timeline by this event.
We need to look very carefully at this short story which He used as an example of what would happen before His return.
Then the kingdom of heaven shall be likened to ten virgins who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom. Now five of them were wise, and five were foolish.
Virgins are often used to refer to those solely devoted to God. This makes us the waiting Brides of Christ: all Christians upon this earth. The Greek word, mōros (mo-ra's) translated “foolish,” means without learning or enlightenment and not caring about the consequences. These are members of the Bride who are not learning God’s ways or thinking about the consequences of their actions.
Those who were foolish took their lamps and took no oil with them, but the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps.
The word used for “oil” is the same word used for the oil to anoint and the oil used to heal the sick. This is the anointing of God through which He brings healing. Some of God’s anointed are acting foolishly, they are not heeding His word as they should.
But while the bridegroom was delayed, they all slumbered and slept.
Notice that all the brides have the oil, which is the anointing of God, and they all got sleepy. The Body of Christ, which is the bride of Christ, has long been asleep.
And at midnight a cry was heard: ‘Behold, the bridegroom is coming; go out to meet him!’
The “cry” is something that is loud and sudden. The Body of Christ has been shaken and knows that the time is close!
Then all those virgins arose and trimmed their lamps.
All the Body of Christ will know that the time is at hand. They will begin preparing for His return: Before the oil was placed in the lamps, they had to prepare the vessel. We see this elsewhere in scripture. God wants us to prepare a place for Him:
Let them make Me a sanctuary, that I may dwell among them. (Exodus 25:8)
We are prepared to receive the anointing by the sharp sword of the Spirit, the Word of God. We cut sin from our life in order to make room for God to flow through us.
And the foolish said to the wise, “Give us some of your oil, for our lamps are going out.” But the wise answered, saying, “No, lest there should not be enough for us and you; but go rather to those who sell, and buy for yourselves.”
When the shout comes, the Bride needs to get ready for the return of Jesus. We need to examine what we know about God. “Waves Breaking Over Barriers” pointed out a few of the items God is addressing with His Church.
The Greek word agorazō (ä-go-rä'-zo) word “buy” means “to purchase; specially, to redeem.” Jesus is the Redeemer. When we take Him as Lord, He becomes our Master, Owner and we are technically “buying” our salvation as we become bondservants to Him.
James, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ… (James 1:1 AKJV)
Simon Peter, a servant and an apostle of Jesus Christ… (2 Peter 1:1 AKJV)
WAIT and listen, everyone who is thirsty! Come to the waters; and he who has no money, come, buy and eat! Yes, come, buy [priceless, spiritual] wine and milk without money and without price [simply for the self-surrender that accepts the blessing]. (Isaiah 55:1 AMPC)
This is what God means when He says we must go and “buy” the oil. It is not with money. We must go to where there is godly wisdom coming forth for free -- Isaiah says it is without price. Then we must surrender our will to God. Those who have foolishly been leading the body of Christ in a wrong way must not only correct their path, but fully surrender where they have erred.
There is a correction which is going to happen. Up until this point, all had oil. But now, only the wise would have oil, those who have learned and been corrected by Him.
And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came, and those who were ready went in with him to the wedding; and the door was shut.
If those who are not operating in God’s ways don’t quickly turn, the anointing will stop flowing and they will miss the Lord when He returns. There is only one Bride and she will be taken in a moment to her Groom. Those who are not wise in following God’s ways will be very surprised when they don’t get to go in. This is clearly stated in the Book of Revelation. See the series messages on Revelation for more information.
Afterward the other virgins came also, saying, “Lord, Lord, open the door to us!” But he answered and said, “Assuredly, I say to you, I do not know you.”
When it is too late, a cry will go up from many, wondering why they have been left out. The Lord spoke of this earlier in Matthew:
Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in your name? and in your name have cast out demons? and in your name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, you that work iniquity. (Matthew 7:22)
In Jesus’s day, “you that work iniquity” is a phrase which means, “You who are unschooled in the Torah (first five books of the Bible).” This means that if we are unlearned in the ways of God, we are in danger of being cast out of the presence of the Lord.
Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour in which the Son of Man is coming.
This means that the Outpouring will not stop until the Lord returns for His bride! Many have said that this is the “final” massive Outpouring. When those who have operated in a wrong way for years lose the anointing of God, it will be the confirming correction showing that Jesus is right at the door!
When I was first called by God, He sent me a dream about this season:
● why it was coming
● what would happen
● how to respond to it
I approached a door to a home with a pen and paper in hand like a reporter. An elderly, overweight woman opened the door and showed me inside. She used a walker to get to the kitchen table. The old woman sat at the table with two fully grown sons. They began serving themselves out of a large pot of beans and hot-dogs until it was running off the sides of their plates. All the while they complained about how much the electric bill cost and other expenses.
I followed the old woman as she left the table. There was a toilet by the big window in the living room which she sat on to do her business while telling me how their ticket has been stolen. If they had that ticket, then everything would be taken care of. She claims they had nearly completed the ticket.
I left the home and went to a business. There was a scruffy-looking guy behind a messy desk. On the shelf behind him I saw a piece of paper. “You know that doesn’t belong to you.” I told him.
“Ya, so?” he replied.
I held out my hand, demanding “I’m returning it to it’s rightful owners.” The guy huffed, but handed over the paper which was the ticket the old woman spoke of. It is a crossword puzzle: three sections across and three sections down. All but the top middle section was filled in. Looking at the blanks, I realized I knew the missing words. Two of them were sex and Ice.
From there I found myself flying, without a plane, into a beautiful, picturesque farm. The central buildings were surrounded by acres of farmland and some woodland as well. Like superman, I landed gracefully in the area between the main house and the barn. It is quiet, with little activity. A young man in his early 30’s has lead-lines trailing a group of four horses behind him, one has a rider. I knew that this is the farmer’s son. A farmer approached. “What happened?” I asked, thinking this place should be busier.
The farmer gestured for me to follow him to the barn. I saw what happened in a sudden vision: the two robust men I had met at the house pulled hay bales out from the bottom of the stack which caused the rest of the bales to fall into a heap.
“They really made a big mess.” The farmer told me. I nodded my head in agreement, “They will have to pay to have this fixed.” He says sternly.
I sighed, knowing it’s true. Instantly, I was knocking at the door to the old woman’s home. Her sons answered, letting me know his mother had died. I handed them the ticket, which was now complete, and said, “You know you did some damage at the farm. You are going to have to give half to pay for the damages.” The man agreed and took the ticket from me.
I soared into the farm again. This time, the area was bustling with activity. The farmer’s son was leading a group of people out on horses. Servants were preparing more horses for departure. The farmer greeted me warmly. He ushered me to the barn where the hay was neatly stacked. I asked, “Have they begun making their payments?” The farmer nodded. I continued, “Are you sending more supplies to them?”
This time he smiles sheepishly, “Not yet, but soon.” As we exit the barn he says, “I have a gift for you…”
At that moment, a huge horse stuck its head out of the three story wooden window at the top of the barn. It was a blue roan, meaning the hair is both blue and white. This three story horse charged out of the barn and ran down the road then came to stand right in front of the farmer and me. “He’s all yours!”
I looked at the horse wondering how I was ever going to get into the saddle…
The home is the world-wide church. The people inside are the leaders of particular churches. A table is where messages on the Word of God are served (spiritual food) and provision. Beans and hotdogs are basic food they are giving out.
Hotdogs are processed meat… some say there's very little actual meat in them. The “meat” from these leaders is overly processed, stuffed full of fillers, with very little substance as they are wrapped in easy to digest packages. Beans are known for making you “full of gas.” In other words, they “puff up the body or soul.”
They are not only serving this to others, but giving themselves a very big portion. The church leaders today are using expenses as an excuse for a puffed up soul which is overriding the word of God concerning not charging for things that belong to Him.
The scruffy guy is Satan who I retrieve the ticket from, he is the thief as mentioned in the Bible. The ticket contains the keys to God’s kingdom; access to Heavenly visits so He can move through His church upon this earth. The knowledge of this was almost complete but Satan works hard taking God’s truth, which is the true power, out of the Church.
Three is the number of divine perfection and completion; with words (the Bible). The ticket is the perfection and completions found in His Word. The two words: “Sex” is an intimate relationship with God and “Ice” is the cool refreshing of the Holy Spirit (water).
These are two ingredients that are missing from much of the church as we use formula prayers instead of relying on the Holy Spirit because we have an intimate relationship with Him.
After completing the ticket I visit the “farm” which is Heaven.
In the Bible, God is referred to as the farmer who sows seed (Matthew 13). His Son is Jesus. Jesus is ready to lead people into heavenly visits (He is leading so the timing is when He chooses). The reason people haven’t been visiting Heaven is found in the barn.
“Hay” represents supplies from Heaven to move in power. It is food for horses which represent power. God’s leaders here on Earth have been disrupting the flow of the power supply by taking their supplies in a wrong fashion.
The leaders of the worldwide Body of Christ have stopped doing things God’s way. They no longer give what they receive from God for free, instead they charge a price for worship, books, prayer and have even begun charging for conferences. This destroys the system God has in place.
When people give an offering, acknowledging that they have received from God, this allows God to move miraculously into that person's life. If people are charged for a revelation, they don’t get to make the choice of what that revelation is worth and how to honor God for that revelation. This is what an offering is, honoring the fact that God has brought something to you.
God, the Farmer, says there is a penalty for what they’ve done. Christ paid the price for our sin so that we have eternal life, however, sometimes there are consequences for that sin while we are still on Earth. For instance, if you kill someone, God forgives that sin, but you may still have to serve some time in jail.
The son answered the door because the old woman had died. I have been tasked with delivering the message to the Church leaders, “Thus sayeth the Lord:
“Those who have perverted My way and given birth to another church, will be removed. Those who are following what they have been taught will have a chance to repent.”
And [Jesus] said to His disciples, Temptations (snares, traps set to entice to sin) are sure to come, but woe to him by or through whom they come! It would be more profitable for him if a millstone were hung around his neck and he were hurled into the sea than that he should cause to sin or be a snare to one of these little ones [lowly in rank or influence]. (Luke 17:1-2 AMPC) (Matthew 18:1-7 & Mark & Mark 9:42-50)
The old woman are leaders who have given birth to other churches who have led others astray. They will be removed. The leader may be removed entirely from this earth, and the church itself will begin to die.
Church leaders who have been taught wrong and were “planted” by another will be chance:
If they have been charging for anything to do with God and the anointing, they will need to give 50% of what they have to God. This is supported in the scripture:
And Zacchaeus stood, and said to the Lord: Behold, Lord, the half of my goods I give to the poor; and if I have taken anything from any man by false accusation, I restore him fourfold. (Luke 19:8)
Zaccheaus was a tax-collector and rich. In that profession, often more was taken from than what was legally required to line the pockets of the collectors. Because money was collected in a wrong way, he had to give 50% of all that he had to the poor in order to come into rights standing with the Lord. God is saying that for those who lose the anointing, they will need to give half of all they have to Him. I am sure that this doesn’t mean they can give to some friend of theirs who has a ministry and has been acting equally wrong… but to God.
Notice that God didn’t send supplies right away. There will be a waiting period before the anointing returns. If you lose the anointing, don’t expect for it to immediately return once you confess and repent.
Concerning the winning ticket, the cool part is this: All Christians are welcome to cash in this ticket. The FREE “Roadmap to Heaven” book that will guide you to what you need to know. As the next part of the dream shows, Jesus is leading people around in Heaven. Horses are power. So when you visit, it is so that He can train you and endow you with power to show the world how much He loves them!

Believers' Boot Camp series
Many people think of boot camp as a place you train for combat. Any veteran will tell you that basic training is about three things:
- Knowing what weapons are available
- Learning how to use those weapons
- Receiving orders and following them
Volume 1: Why Doesn't God Speak to Me?
Eager hearts cry out, hoping for a single word to confirm that He hears us. Yet, many times the only sound is silence. Over the years I have heard several reasons why God speaks to some and not to others. One night, as I tossed and turned, I brought each of these reasons before the Lord, stating why each of them did not line up with who I thought He was.
Words rose from my soul, pleading for Him to reveal why He has remained silent when a single word from Him would mean so much to so many. For the next few hours, God used things I learned about years ago and things I had just discovered to show why He talks to some and why He doesn’t, and in demonstrative ways.
In His grace, He also showed me how people could hear more from Him. Basic instructions on how to hear more from God and how to be led by Him are included in this book. Thank you for taking time to consider the answers I received and share with you now.
