Dream 10- Multiple Hooded Figures


Dark as it is, it is also a message of hope over 40 years.

Dream is from 1973.

Circumstances surrounding dream

My son has just been born and was about 5 months old. I was working in a restaurant at the time, as (already) a single mom.

My future did not look too good at the time, but I worked each day to make it better.


I am at work in the restaurant. I go into the kitchen to get some things.

As I turn around to leave, I am faced with about 20 dark hooded figures in my path.

I think to myself, this is not good.

I thought I had done something wrong.

Dream ends.

At the time I thought the figures represented “past lives” coming back to haunt me. I had some New Age influence back then.

I had no real idea what any of this meant, but they were definitely in my path and in my way, and I was not able to leave the kitchen.

It has taken 40 years before I started to finally understand the dream. So I share it now.

Each figure did represent an obstacle and a serious danger in my life path.

With time, one by one, each figure did what it intended, to cause misery or danger, then left my life.

Ironic also that, now I am retired, I find myself “in the kitchen” not really free to “go out” and do what I want.

So my end was predicted in the dream as well.



I remained, maybe damaged, but still working hard to make my future better.

They could not stop me.

They hindered me, and hurt me, but they could not make me give up.

Little did I understand, 40 years ago, and also over the 40 year period, that only with God’s help could I have survived these hooded creatures and their evil intent.

There were malicious attacks against me.

But 40 years later, I am still here.


Recently, January 2013, I had another dream about a hooded figure. I understood it to be the Angel of Death watching others and myself travel in a bus down the road.

Death Angel Dream

Again, it did not look good, until now.

YHVH God, in His Divine Providence and unending love for me, has protected me already about 19 times from death and destruction over 40 years.

That is approximately an attack every 2 years.

This is the last hooded figure to be overcome.

I know now that it may harm me in some way, but I will survive and endure.

It may take everything I have, as other hooded figures did in the past, and force me to start over, but I will still remain when the trial is over.



Sometimes, when God shows us our obstacles, we interpret them as defeats and losses: A time when God seemingly abandons us.

It may seem like our doom is predicted, but it does not have to be so.

It could be that God is sending us through dangers and trials, to purify us, and to teach us that He is there for us. After all, we could not survive these evils unless He is there to pull us through it.

I posted this also, because many are having dreams of end times, seeing themselves in camps, or in captivity or in danger.

We have to see these dreams not as warnings that we are doomed, but visions of obstacles that we will have to overcome.

Romans 8:37

37 Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.

  1. […] here for […]

    • Bravo!
      Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.
      I used to dream about snakes popping up out of nowhere. It would terrify me. I struggled against fear. But as the children got a little older I was able to go back to school. It took enormous courage but I was doing it. One night I dreamed there were 3 snakes on the sidewalk as I walked to my class, and without even thinking, I jumped over them. I saw them as a nuisance, I had things to do. Praise Jesus. He will never leave you or forsake you.

  2. Been there done that…lol..I too have had a few visions over the years and they have always contributed to better understanding of Scripture…

  3. Yes, He wants us to know He’s there even through trials. I often wonder where I’d be if the trials were less. But that’s second guessing. I always wanted the Lord. But then, I guess I had trials all of my life. It might have looked easy when I was a child, but it was not. And I always was after finding Him.
    A psychiatrist reminded me that I wouldn’t have had my wonderful husband if I had not been as I was, and part of what I was was badly wounded by life.
    I hope your next trial is light, Marianne!

  4. Marianne,

    Great message.

    “All who overcome will have a right to enter through the gates of New Jerusalem and eat of the tree of life” (Rev 22:14).

    “He who overcomes and keeps My works to the end, to him I will give power over the nations and he shall rule them with a rod of iron. And I will give him the morning star” (Rev 2:26-28).

    He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. ‘The one who conquers will not be hurt by the second death’ (Revelation 2:11).

    Rev. 12:11

  5. Just pray to G-d in Christ’s name to send strong Angels to watch over you, and your household. When the enemy attacks you, you know you are doing something right.

    BTW, I would like to see G-d send Charles, the Hammer, Martel to Nigeria post haste. This example of those who follow Muhammad, is the true truth about Islam.

    • I will do that. I can use all the good angels I can get

    • Leatherneck, what does your message mean? Do you follow Islam? Please explain in detail.

      • no leatherneck does not follow Islam, but opposes it

        • Islam was created by the collaboration of the papacy and the pharisees, muhammed was lead by them scripturally while the angel of light he spoke to was satanic. They are an army that the Vatican has bred and a counterfeit beast of revelation (although they are part of it as is all false religion)

          The Antichrist is not the mahdi but the replacement Messiah of a trinity that removed requirements to keep the laws, who Christians follow today.

          The true Messiah taught us to keep law and was a perfect example of how to do so.

          • Dear Messianic Jew,

            The “replacement Messiah” who “removed requirements to keep the laws, who Christians follow today” sound like the evil spirit of “Boss Paul the Pharisee.” That is the spirit that most Evangelicals are following today, not Jesus.

            It appears that this spirit prompts people to listen to Paul first, and insist that Paul’s personal letters are “The voice of God, the Word of God, the Commandments of God.” And they ignore the true Word of God, the Torah itself and the Torah made flesh, Jesus / Yahshua son of Yahweh the Most High God.

            Paul spoke of Jesus “abolishing the law” but in contrast Jesus said that He did NOT come to abolish the law.

            I’m not saying that Paul was literally The Antichrist, but if you read what he wrote about himself here, you can see that he did sort of have a “messiah complex.”


      • Leah,
        Charles Martel, the hammer, is the one that stopped the spread of Islam into Europe. He’s a hero in France. This was back in Islam’s glory days when they actually used swords in battle. Now they try creeping in.

  6. Marianne, here is a prophetic word thru John Finn who has a house church network in the USA and in Europe..its part of an email sent so when John says remember it would last thru April he is referring to other teaching previous emails,,,

    Prophetic word

    You are already aware of this time of confusion, uncertainty, and not knowing where to turn the Father told me about this spring, and that I have relayed in this space and in my e-newsletter this summer. Remember He said it would last through April – so stay in peace. Recently He told me the Europe conferences will be at a time of transition and He will speak more to me at that time for the next season.

    But a bit over a week ago I was praying about this time we are currently in, asking if He would share anything else for this or the next season, and suddenly the Father said:

    “You will see a decision made by one nation lead other nations to make similar decisions, which will have a cascading effect down to the United States and its economy, and will catch many by surprise. It will appear to happen quickly, so don’t be surprised. The times are coming when many who thought they knew what faith was, will discover they know nothing as they should. The times are coming when people who equate financial increase with godliness will discover they know nothing as they should. And the times are coming when people who know Me as they should, will walk as giants in the land, examples to others, strong in character and love and pleasing to Me.”

    He also said; “Many of my people in the traditional churches are like sheep without shepherds, even though they attend those churches. The level of unrest in my people is reaching a point that you will soon see an even greater increase in the flow of my people out of those churches as they search for the genuine, the simple, the Word based fellowships their hearts long for.”

    There were some more personal things for me that had to do with the growth of house church and what I’d see next year, but the summary I feel peace sharing includes the increase in persecution, how we will see conservatives and by extension Christians blamed for society’s ills, and so forth in the coming years. He also said it would be a time of great blessing to those who have ears to hear and who will walk with Him without distraction.

    Stay in peace, stay thankful, and know that I ‘make mention of you in my prayers’ to quote Paul, daily. Thank you for being part of our lives! Pray for us for provision, wisdom, and rest. Thank you!

    • I would agree with that, and have come to similar conclusions.

      • Marianne,
        On FOX this morning
        Oprah said in an interview that old white people who are all steeped in racial prejudice need to die? What a horrible thing to say. I never would have suspected she would think such a thing.
        The Cheney family is being exposed to media spotlight for their gay daughter and are trying to split the family over it. The powers that be are getting desperate. Divide and conquer must be the ploy. Principled people can contain this.

    • Amen John and Barb – and Byron Wilson – I sure believe that is right on.

  7. I was told that I had a prophetic gift. I dream a LOT and MANY of my dreams come to past. Some takes weeks to be fulfilled and others months and some still have not come to past yet. So I feel that since I have this gift, I am targeted by spiritual forces. So my question to you is, in your many years of dealing with your gifts, did you have to fast a lot to deal with issues and to have prayers answered.

    • dear joseph

      In the beginning, I did fast and pray a lot. In fact, about half the time I was on a fast. this went on for a few years. but this was the Lords’ decision not mine.

      I never thought much about gifts when I was doing it….just seeking God….gifts came later.

      I believe that there are fasts that we decide to do, and this is good, and will help us. Then there are fasts that god puts us on, and then he carries us through them.

      Ask the Lord about fasting for you…..if you feel led to do this, then do so. It will help with spiritual warfare.

    • Joseph,
      Praise God in song. Demons will flee. Praise Jesus. Not from your singing, I mean. Listen to music that puts your focus on God. “There He is in the midst.”

    • Joseph,

      The attached is the best resource for fasting. I suggest playing the audio option of Scriptures found at http://www.biblegateway.com

      The ESV audio of Psalms is excellent!


      Yes, prepare and start fasting/prayer and reading the Word as you often as you are led to do.

      Psalm 25

  8. Good article M. I believe the Lord brings situations in your life to test your faith. The Lord is not interested in the luke-warm christians, He wants those on fire for Him and who trust in Him and believe in His Word. 15 years ago the company division I worked for closed down. In South Africa, since 1994 a white man is the enemy, so you either work for yourself or try and get a contract, not easy. I struggled for 6 months after the retrenchment, managed to just survive. I believed in the Lord all my life but only became reborn 10 years earlier, from then on I knew I had a relationship with the Lord. Coming home one day, morally low, I said to the Lord, “You have been with me all my life but presently I feel You have deserted me, can you reveal Yourself.” Off the main highway and about 2 miles later this camelian (large crawling insect) is walking across the road. I stop and put my hand out in front, normally they will hiss, but this time it walked onto my hand, as this took place, the Lord spoke in my ear, clearly, “This is how I am carrying you.” The tears poured out of my eyes, I was totally humbled.
    I have been in near death experiences (car crashes etc) many times, every time I knew the Lord was there and protecting us. So, my message to all believers, make sure you are reborn, you have been baptised and then totally trust the Lord in all areas of your life. If you have doubt or fear it puts a barrier between you and the Lord. He does have a plan in your life. For me, I have waited over 20 years for that plan, patience is a virtue and it is another facet that God wants to impute to us. If you are going through a testing time whether loss, financial, trust etc, know that the Lord is with you always. Just do not go off the narrow road and sin, because once you do, God will leave you if it is intentional (Heb 10:26-31).
    Hope this helps someone. God bless.

  9. hai everyone! my name is Peter, i have been inspired by marianne’s dream and the interpretation, maybe someone out there can help translate my latest dream which have baffled me so much. in one night i had these three dreams:
    I was with my relatives, a small group of about four people around me, and they were more like consoling me concerning my present situation.(in actual sense, i have been struggling with my family after loosing my job a year ago), but these are people who have hated me and have rejected me for so long, and i dont even relate to them on anything anymore. After they have finished consoling me, they offered me a plate of food so that i can eat – but before i can eat, i woke up.

    After that i prayed and later fall asleep and had the following dream:
    in this one, my young half brother who lives far away in the village had bought a car and i borrowed so that i can drive around with it. but as i packed at a fuel station for refueling, i was standing outside and noticed that some unknown people had opened the boot and got everything from there. i started to complain to the attendant but he seemed so unconcerned and did not even pay attention. i became so furious and driven off to the next garage so that they can look at the car. as i pack outside the gate, waiting to go inside, i noticed that some people had pulled off the back tyres. so i ran up to the guy running with the tyre perched on his shoulders, but the guy out run me and vanished. when i looked back on the car, it was almost tilting to the left and unable to move.
    i became so frustrated and very upset about the all issue… and I WOKE UP!.

    After waking up, i prayed and immediately slumped and slept, thats when i had the last dream:
    In this one, i was standing on a nice, golden stage with a nice pulpit, nicely dressed in a suit and tie, i was preaching to a very large audience, and i was talking about the.. Holy spirit, Baptism in the holy ghost.. and about CONVERSION….i was like emphasising on a point and said something like: There is supposed to be an IMAGE OF CONVERSION on the individual etc. and it looked like i had preached so much, because i just kept speaking . later, i WOKE UP…but this time i felt so refreshed and at peace! i just stood up and started praying.

    Marianne, and the rest of you guys, please help me to unerstand this dream.
    Thank you.

    • dear Peter

      I think the first two dreams deal with every day issues or problems you might be facing, and how your family relates to you.

      maybe the last dream is showing you your desire, or god’s desire for you, to share the gospel with others.

    • Peter,
      I think the last dream is telling you how you can deal with the first two dreams, your everyday problems and frustrations. Lean on the Lord. He can be your rock. Eventually you may lead them to the Lord as well.

    • Peter,

      I suggest you read Psalms 40, 41, 46 and 49. Then, keep searching and reading other Psalms.

      Do not be concerned – The Lord is preparing you for the great awaking that is coming.

      The Spirit will give you the words to speak (Psalm 18:28-36).

      So, wait upon the Lord.

      Psalm 11

    • Hi Peter,

      Certainly you have heard that everything that is not of the Lord’s planting shall be uprooted. Do not despair in regard to your current trial of joblessness, and do not look up to relatives and people whose origin of wealth is not known to you. For whatsoever they assist you with that is not of the planting of the Lord, the owners thereof (demonic spirits) will come to retrieve ere it serves you any good. The only refuge is to serve in the Lord’s army for you, the best way that He leads you to. You are being pointed to the time of reaping which has already commenced, when the spirits, the good, the bad and the terrible are mandated to reap wheresoever they have sown. Therefore be mindful and covet not the fields of the devils sowing, lest you too get entangled in the great disappointment. Indeed, the third dream advises you of the only course anyone upon the planet shall get refuge. To love the Lord with all we are, and to evaluate our existence in the clarity of the Holy-spirit.

  10. I had a couple of interesting, and amazing, dreams since last summer. One was a look at God’s spinning of the earth after He had created it. I was ascending through the heavens, as if I was on my way to heaven, and God gave me a glimpse at His awesomeness. The other was depicting Jesus’ return and there was a great and very loud storm. I looked out a window and saw about 5 or 6 tornadoes in different neighborhoods. The clouds were dark and moving very quickly.Huge hailstones were falling, there was a massive earthquake, and I heard great screaming and moaning. A statue-like Jesus came down to earth and landed with a great earthquake. I then heard His voice speak clearly to me: “I want you to put away all nonsense and get serious with Me. I want all of my people on their faces before me because the time is near.”

    • Richard,

      Please read and meditate upon this –

      “Therefore, with minds that are alert and fully sober, set your hope on the grace to be brought to you when Jesus Christ is revealed at his coming.

      As obedient children, do not conform to the evil desires you had when you lived in ignorance. But just as he who called you is holy, so be holy in all you do; for it is written: ‘Be holy, because I am holy.’

      Since you call on a Father who judges each person’s work impartially, live out your time as foreigners here in reverent fear. For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your ancestors, but with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect.

      He was chosen before the creation of the world, but was revealed in these last times for your sake. Through him you believe in God, who raised him from the dead and glorified him, and so your faith and hope are in God.

      Now that you have purified yourselves by obeying the truth so that you have sincere love for each other, love one another deeply, from the heart.

      For you have been born again, not of perishable seed, but of imperishable, through the living and enduring word of God.

      For, ‘All people are like grass, and all their glory is like the flowers of the field; the grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of the Lord endures forever.’

      And this is the word that was preached to you” (1st Peter 1:13-25, NIV).

      I suggest reading the above passage in other translations and the reminder of this letter from Peter. Then – continue to wash yourself with the Word (Ephesians 5:25-27). This is what He is calling His Bride to do now more than ever before. I know 2 other people who received the same message within the past year.

      I think He wants us out of the world (TV, entertainment, distractions) and into the Word. He is standing at the door as Judge (James 5:7-11).

      The Lord loves you very much.

      Psalm 40

      • Thank you DJ. I thank you for your response and I have gladly welcomed it. I read His Word first every morning. I let go of the things of this world, as you mentioned above, a few months ago by the help from a dear brother in Ethiopia. Good sound advice. I was wondering if I could tell you my testimony? It’s not all pleasant but I would like your counsel and fellowship. God bless you.

  11. Sounds like a warning of food poisoning in your restaurant.

  12. I think there is a certain kind of danger when trying to interpret dreams like this. (This applies to everyone). When you assume your dream actually means something, and is accurate, then try to make it fit biblically somehow, you can run the risk of warping the bible to fit your dream, especially if you are trying to generate some sort of prophecy.
    First of all there is no reason to believe your dreams are God-given. If you were a true prophet you would know it. And while the message may be quite biblical, or at least your interpretation of it, it would be arrogant for any of us to believe a dream was a true message from God.
    It would be better to preach the sentiment and just forget the actual dream. Any more than that would just be futile.

    • jim

      I have never claimed to be a prophet. Everyone has dreams.

      And some dreams ARE given by God, for our own edification. Having such dreams does not make us “special.”

      In this case, I do believe God gave it to me, to show me what I was in for, and how hard my life would be. it does not have to pass your scrutiny for it to be such a dream. It took me 40 years for me to understand it.

      So it would be more arrogant for someone to immediately discredit the dream, with all its value and message, than for someone to embrace it and try to learn from it.

      so there…..

    • Jim,
      Here’s a dream you might like. I dreamed I was paralyzed by some force, and I was gnawing on my husband’s arm (for real) trying to scream but nothing would come out. It was like a demon had come into me, or was holding me down. In my mind, which was all I could do, I screamed Jesus, help! That’s all I could get out. And it left! I laid there wide awake, thanking God, wiping the drool from my husband’s arm, and was amazed at how quickly Jesus answered. You know how some dreams linger? This thing was gone gone. All it took was calling on his name — in my mind, and boom, gone.

      • This exact thing has happened to me on several occasions. While “napping” I felt my arms clamped to my sides. Sometimes I would hear one of our dogs barking beside me (tho, they were not beside me in reality) as tho warning me there was a “presence”. I, too, would only be able to call out on the name “Jesus” since I was unable to move. in one case in particular, “whatever” it was exploded! At another time, I heard my name called and tho my eyes were shut (since I was again “napping”) I could see a the face of a friend beside me, ostensibly so I would welcome her in, but I knew instinctively it was NOT my friend and when i rebuked her in Jesus’ name, she disappeared and my arms were released.

    • ” If you were a true prophet you would know it.”

      “it would be arrogant for any of us to believe a dream was a true message from God.”

      Make your mind up.

    • Joel.2: 27And ye shall know that I am in the midst of Israel, and that I am the LORD your God, and none else: and my people shall never be ashamed.

      28And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions:

      29And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out my spirit.

      30And I will shew wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke.

      31The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and terrible day of the LORD come.

      32And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the LORD shall be delivered: for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the LORD hath said, and in the remnant whom the LORD shall call.

      Are these not coming to past as we now speak; I will rest my faith in the words of our Lord and His Prophets; After all If we have truly been baptized in His name and recieved His Holy Spirit we have the gifts of prophecy too as well for He our Jesus is the Spirit of Prophecy, Rv.19:10! 1 Jn.4:4 4Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.
      I and my house will rest in the Lord and worship and work in His gifts as He requires us to use for His calling us to the lost to show them the better way; but if we stop using these gifts because they affend others, we will find our faith to leave us, because unless we go out and use our faith and His gifts to us we are like those who say I have faith and need no works and we will be like James who says he has faith and shows it by his works, Jms.2; If we don’t step out in faith using what our good Lord gave us to use He has no need to confirm His word in us; this is exactly why He said what He said in Lk.18:7And shall not God avenge his own elect, which cry day and night unto him, though he bear long with them?

      8I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth? He won’t unless we continue to let Him confirm His word in our works for Him!

  13. Hey M. That was quite a meal you cooked up out of that dream. Makes me think about Heavenly food. I think your dream is from The Salvation of Yahweh and a great and wonderful teaching about patience, courage, increasing strength of mind and body, and faith! Thank you for being a sock puppet for Yahweh- God!

    • never thought of being a sock puppet.

      good analogy….

      i like your music

      • Only if we allow Him to walk in us as we are His Holy Tabernacle, just like Mary, she was blessed because she let the Lord of the Hosts use her for His coming to us; Marianne thanks for letting the Lord use you also!
        2 Cor.6:14Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?

        15And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?

        16And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.

        17Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you.

        18And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.

        Let us all keep unto Him and His word only!

  14. Marianne,
    Regarding your dream from 1973:

    I have no insight into the specific details.
    But I have felt for several years now that somehow, 1973 was a key turning point for your generation, where something was buried or hidden for 40 years. Sort of like the Israelites reaching the Promised Land, but then turning back and wandering in the desert for 40 years. But now it’s bubbling to the surface finally, as we prepare to enter the Promised Land of the Jesus People.

    As you may remember, my first post on your site was back in August-
    “1973 – Inside the mind of a Jesus Person”

    But no, I didn’t go through this at all. I was only 10 in 1973. My mother had just divorced my father, right before she was scheduled to receive an inheritance, and after she got the money she abruptly moved us halfway across the country without informing my father beforehand. (I have forgiven both of them – don’t worry.) I didn’t come to know Jesus personally until around my 30th birthday.

  15. Vision of angels with jackhammers
    Sunday March 10, 2013 approximately between 7:30 – 8:00 AM Pacific Time

    The soundtrack for this vision was worship music, prominently featuring “The God of angel armies” by Chris Tomlin. I was lying in bed, raising my hands in worship for about half an hour.

    A heavenly army of angels started gathering here in Montebello, to prepare for spiritual warfare against the demonic stronghold over the church in Pasadena. (It seemed the focus of the warfare was over the church in the Eastern part of the city.) I saw angels on horseback, and several of them grabbed heavenly jackhammers and started circling around over the church in Pasadena, hammering away at the transparent “concrete” over the church. But very quickly it became obvious that the horses were not needed, and in fact they were hindering the work and making it less effective. I had briefly wondered why the jackhammers did not need a power cord, but of course they are not powered by electricity, but rather by heavenly power.

    Then I saw hundreds of angels being armed for battle with these jackhammers, just as an army of men would be armed with machine guns going into battle. A scene from a war movie I saw many years ago flashed in my mind, where soldiers were lined up in a corridor, and quickly passing by another soldier standing at the door who had a stack of guns. He quickly shoved a machine gun in their hands one by one, and they ran out the door armed for battle. It was sort of like that with the angels this morning.

    Hundreds of these angels with jackhammers gathered above the church in Pasadena, and hammered away at the transparent “concrete” over the church. (No horses this time.) This “concrete” was over the entire San Gabriel Valley, but it seemed it was weaker over this area- I’m not completely sure why. After maybe 5 or 10 minutes of this hammering, there started to be breakthrough. In a circle above the church, the concrete was demolished, and there was an open heaven.

    (The concrete remained in place over the rest of the Valley. After the hammering was finished, the jackhammers were collected on a big tray on vertical rails, sort of like a huge “dumbwaiter” about the size of a tractor trailer, and lifted back to heaven.)

    Underneath the “open heaven” the earth was crawling with maggots, filth, and demons. But now they were exposed to the Light of the World, Jesus Christ. This area started to be cleansed and purified, and the rampant presence of the demons and their work started to be destroyed, burned up, and cast out. It was so filthy that shining the light alone into this area wasn’t enough. But our God is enough, He does not change, and He is the Almighty, the Alpha and the Omega.

    The humble, anonymous author of the Book of Hebrews reminds us: “Since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe, for our “God is a consuming fire.” [12:28] and “Remember your leaders, who spoke the word of God to you. Consider the outcome of their way of life and imitate their faith. Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.” [13:7-8]
    (So we are NOT to imitate the way of life of other leaders who spoke the word of God, not Paul the Pharisee nor any other man, regardless of what they claim about themselves. Rather we are to imitate JESUS, who is always the same.)

    The author of Hebrews was referring back to the Torah of Moses:
    “Do not make for yourselves an idol in the form of anything the LORD your God has forbidden. For the LORD your God is a consuming fire, a jealous God.” [Deuteronomy 4:23b-24]
    In most Bible-believing churches today, Paul the Pharisee has become an idol, and the time has come for this idol to be exposed and cast down.

    In my vision, God then came as a consuming fire, entered the hole in the concrete under the open heaven, and burned up all the filth, to purify this space. It was cleansed, swept clean and put in order.

    Then I saw the evil king, Boss Paul the Pharisee, being exposed and cast down from his high position. The angels threw his metal crown in the dust, and pounded it with hammers, bending the points on top inward, and beating it into scrap metal. They stripped the idol of “The Apostle Paul” of his rich garments, kicked him in the butt a few times, and cast him into the abyss “until the appointed time.”

    (Paul was never appointed an Apostle by Jesus or anyone else in the pages of the Bible, any more than Mary the mother of Jesus is “the immaculate conception.” Jesus and the original Apostles all agree that there are only 12 Apostles, and the 12th is Matthias.)

    I was wondering specifically what is “the appointed time” and what specifically happens then, but God did not choose to reveal that to me. Why wouldn’t God tell me this? I don’t know. But maybe it is a reminder that I am human and I don’t know everything. Only the risen Lord Jesus Christ can truly claim: “I have become all things to all men so that by all possible means I might save some.” For Paul the Pharisee, or me, or the Antichrist, or any other man to make such a claim about himself is truly blasphemy. When Jesus walked the earth in the flesh, even He didn’t claim such a thing about himself at that time. But now that He is risen, Yes.

    Then I saw a huge image of Jesus sitting on the throne, above the San Gabriel Mountains just north of Pasadena, facing south toward the San Gabriel Valley. (The purified hole in the “concrete” was front and center before Him.) He was about 3 times as tall as the tallest mountains. He was bright, shining like the sun. Majesty, Glory, Power, Love, Truth, Joy, Hope, Faithfulness, Peace, Fulfillment, unspeakable Contentment, Wholeness, Unity, Restoration.

    I asked “where is God the Father?”
    The answer given was, “In heaven.” Just like the opening words of Jesus in what we call the “Lord’s Prayer” or the “Our Father.”

    • some of this “vision” seems ok, but the part about Paul as the evil king seems unreasonable….no one worships him to begin with.

      And Jesus would not have called him to preach, if he knew Paul would turn out evil….

      Is this your church in Pasadena? if so, it is in trouble….

      • Marianne,

        I don’t believe that “Paul is the evil king” any more than I believe that Mary the mother of Jesus is the “evil queen of Mexico.”

        However, around 1945, the Roman Catholic Pope made a proclamation that the “Virgin of Guadalupe” was something like “Queen of Mexico and Empress of the Americas.”

        Just as in Mexico many have set up their own version of “Mary” as an idol, and are really following a demon, in the Evangelical church today many have set up their own version of “Paul” as an idol, and are really following a demon.

        I identify this demon as “Boss Paul the Pharisee.”
        Before you can remove an evil spirit, first you must realize that it is there, and identify it specifically. (just as in “Identify and remove the Jezebel Spirit.”)

        It seems to me that there many people in the Evangelical church who DO worship Paul- someone on your site here composed a praise song dedicated to Paul recently.

        I am not questioning your assertion that Jesus called Paul to preach- based on the Bible text, I have to assume this is true, despite some questionable circumstances.

        It is not my place to make a definitive judgment about someone’s salvation if they profess to be a Christian. However, we are supposed to hold Bible teachers to a higher standard, compare their teachings to those of Jesus and Moses, and look for good fruit over time. Paul is not “the exception.”

        As for Paul “turning out evil”, every one of us has a mix of evil and good in us AFTER we are born again, and Paul was not “the exception” here either. I think in the end of the book of Acts, Luke gives us a “happy ending” – it appears that Paul actually did end up OK, despite his life being on a par with Samson, the prophet Jonah, or King Solomon.

        We have never been members of any church in Pasadena.

    • Me thinks, we should listen to the small voice of the Spirit and not to brush off dreams as ‘ordinary’ as Brother James often suggests. However, we ought to be extra vigilant in the interpretations lest we be worse off from misinterpretations. Indeed, it makes perfect sense, that the churches have shielded us from the light of Christ and instead preach to us on material ‘blessings’ whose source is really of the filth. Thus Pasadena church would refer to the entire religious system of the world. The destruction of the material world at its zenith (roof) by acts of God (hurricanes, earthquakes) will bust the bubble and collapse the roof, after which the nature of the world will become apparent to many, and we all shall justify the cleansing of the world with further trials.

      In regard to Boss Paul the pharisee, call it the Lord’s sense of satire, for indeed it has nothing to do with the ancient biblical Paul, who in no instance was a ‘Boss’ but a tent-maker and humblest of Apostles even disdaining from ‘benefiting personally from the collections of the Saints. He had been a pharisee indeed, but not a ‘pharisee’ after his conversion.

      In the present world, we have many so called apostles and miracle workers, TV evangelists and great religious leaders. These are the ‘Boss’ as we indeed experience, and they are Pharisaical from head to toe and in all their practice. For when they pretend and preach of versions of gospels of Christ, in real essence they practice the gospel of Mammon and the entire retinue of devils. These are Boss Paul the Pharisee. Lets not drug the Apostle Paul into this description of the devils spawn.

      Wonderful to read how the Lord indeed is working among ten thousands of his people in dreams and visions and multiplication of wonders. Dreams I really love to read and mesmerize over.

      • Hi John,
        I appreciate your thougtful comments. But I am puzzled by 2 points.

        .1) You wrote: “Boss Paul the pharisee has nothing to do with the ancient biblical Paul, who in no instance was a ‘Boss’ …”

        I understand your mindset very well, since I went to Dallas Theological Seminary. We learned all about the Church in Corinth, how they “gave poor Paul more trouble than all his other churches put together.” They were infamous for being an unhealthy church, and the kinds of serious problems they were having were obviously the result of deeply flawed, unhealthy leadership.

        Yet, for so many years, it never occurred to me to think – “who was in charge of the church in Corinth at the time Paul was writing his letters to them?” Responsibility and Authority go together. In other words, what was the name of the man who was controlling all aspects of the church from a great distance away, without delegating any specific authority to anyone who was living in Corinth? Who had both authority and responsibility for the fiasco in Corinth? Who was the Boss of the Church in Corinth?

        To answer that very simple basic question, I can save you some time. You don’t need to rip up all the carpets in the house, and search for fire ants with a magnifying glass.

        If you read 1 & 2 Corinthians, you will see Jumbo the Elephant dancing the cha cha cha all over the living room, tooting his own horn in your ear over and over, and trampling everyone in sight.

        .2) You wrote: “He [Paul] had been a pharisee indeed, but not a ‘pharisee’ after his conversion.”

        Luke records the voice of Paul:
        “The Paul.. called out in the Sanhedrin, ‘My brothers, I am a Pharisee, the son of a Pharisee…’” [Acts 23:6]

        Was Paul telling the truth about himself here, or lying?
        (If you response is “but he didn’t really mean it”, are you saying that it’s OK to lie if it’s politically expedient and you want to play divisive power politics – “like Paul”?)

  17. Richard,

    I would like to read your testimony!

    Please send your testimony to this email address:


    Once I have yours, then I’ll reply with my very long testimony (more of an essay).

    I wrote out my story about 2 years ago on the theme “Amazing Grace” and the testimony of John Newton. He wrote hundreds of hymns and many speak to me as if I could have written some of them.


    You know the hymn “Amazing Grace”, yes?

    One hymn he wrote that is just so powerful, bringing me to tears is this one,
    “I Would But Cannot Sing”.

    “I would, but cannot sing,
    Guilt has untuned my voice;
    The serpent sin’s envenomed sting
    Has poisoned all my joys.

    I know the Lord is nigh,
    And would, but cannot, pray;
    For Satan meets me when I try,
    And frights my soul away.

    I would but can’t repent
    Though I endeavor oft;
    This stony heart can ne’er relent
    Till Jesus make it soft.

    I would but cannot love,
    Though wooed by love divine;
    No arguments have pow’r to move
    A soul so base as mine.

    I would, but cannot rest
    In God’s most holy will;
    I know what he appoints is best,
    Yet murmur at it still!

    Oh could I but believe!
    Then all would easy be;
    I would, but cannot, Lord relieve,
    My help must come from thee!

    But if indeed I would,
    Though I can nothing do,
    Yet the desire is something good,
    For which my praise is due.

    By nature prone to ill,
    Till thine appointed hour
    I was as destitute of will,
    As now I am of pow’r.

    Wilt thou not crown, at length,
    The work thou hast begun?
    And with a will, afford me strength
    In all thy ways to run.”

  18. Thank you DJ. That was powerful. I can identify with much. Especially knowing that I cannot truly repent without God. That is part of my testimony absolutely. I will try later, today hopefully, to type out my testimony. This is a blessing meeting you here. I do not have many brothers or sisters in Christ to talk with here where I live. Thank God He revealed the Truth to me. Thank God.
    Until later,

  19. 1985 John Wimber (link to video below)

    “Demons can manifest at many levels. There are many dimensions of demonic control, infiltration and activity…. You DO have to deal with them. Every place I’ve gone in the last 4 ½ years I have found demonic presence. I’ve cast demons out of thousands of people at this time. Wherever we have gone, we have seen this demonic presence lifted and exposed and driven out. We’ve CAST DEMONS OUT OF PASTORS much less Christians. We’ve cast demons out everywhere we have gone. There is a demonic stronghold in the church today and we must come to grips with the reality of it.”

  20. Calling out around the world…
    I asked the question: “who was in charge of the church in Corinth when Paul wrote his letters to them?” The effect seems about the same as a neutron bomb.

    So let me phrase it this way.
    Can anyone in the world give any good reason to believe that Paul was NOT completely in charge of all areas of the Church in Corinth when he wrote his 2 letters to them?

    Paul wrote far more to the Church in Corinth than to any other church. 29 chapters in 2 long letters. Paul was primarily responsible for starting the church. Then after 1 ½ years, he left for no apparent reason. Paul went traveling around again, mostly on his own, all the way to Jerusalem. Then he wandered back to Ephesus, where he argued in the synagogue for 3 months, and then started his own school in Ephesus, where he taught daily, full-time for 2 years. [Acts 19:8-10]

    Paul wrote his letters to the Corinthians from a great distance away.
    But Paul also wrote to his two young traveling evangelist helpers Timothy and Titus that an overseer or elder “must be hospitable.” [1 Timothy 3:2, Titus 1:8]
    I don’t think that Paul was wrong on this particular point, and I’m sure you don’t either. The leader – the pastor- who oversees a church “must be hospitable”.

    No one can be “hospitable” from hundreds of miles away while he is working at another full-time job. That would be a traveling evangelist, a teacher, or a writer- not a pastor, not someone who should be overseeing all aspects of a local church.

    So isn’t it obvious now that the fundamental root cause for the Church in Corinth being so carnal is because they had a carnal, abusive absentee founding pastor who didn’t delegate real authority to anyone else and didn’t practice what he preached?

  21. Matthew – you are whipping a dead horse rider. When your revelation is so great it denies a “THIRD” of the whole New Testament. You are saying Jesus was not big enough or wise enough to call Paul and or let him be killed for going astray. Your theology begs for the Holy Spirit to enter you. And guide you to all truth.

    Lighthouse –

  22. Paul himself testified that Jesus told him:
    “Leave Jerusalem immediately, because they will not accept your testimony about me.” and “Go; I will send you far away to the Gentiles.”
    [Acts 22:18, 21]

    When Paul disobeyed God and was heading back to Jerusalem anyway, Luke records:
    “Through the Spirit they urged Paul not to go on to Jerusalem. But when our time was up, we left and continued on our way.” [Acts 21:4-5]

    Then the prophet Agabus came and pronounced judgment on Paul. [Acts 21:10-14] And Paul responds that he’s ready “to die in Jerusalem.”

    So God told Paul to go one way, and Paul says he’s ready to die going the opposite direction. Paul is the New Testament Jonah!

    When God told Jonah to go to Nineveh, “Jonah ran away from the LORD and headed for Tarshish.” (that is Spain, the opposite direction from Nineveh.) And when God sent a storm to stop Jonah from going the wrong direction, what did Jonah say? “Pick me up and throw me into the sea.”

    Back to Paul, the disobedient evangelist.
    What good fruit came out of Paul’s disobedient journey to Jerusalem?
    [Acts 19:21- 27:1] Nothing. Zero. Just a lot of uproar, wasted time, wasted energy, wasted resources. And, “When two years had passed… because Felix wanted to grant the Jews a favor, he left Paul in prison.”
    [Acts 24:27]

    So Jesus WAS big enough and wise enough to discipline Paul in prison for 2 years to stop Paul going astray.

    • you certainly take things out of context.

      The apostles did not want Jesus to go to Jerusalem either, when they found out he was going to die.

      Being in Jerusalem to begin with was not disobedience. Most Jews went there for feasts and general reasons. The temple was there, so also to worship.

      If he was ready to die in Jerusalem, that is just a statement of commitment.

      Then Paul answered, “Why are you weeping and breaking my heart? I am ready not only to be bound, but also to die in Jerusalem for the name of the Lord Jesus.” ACTS 21;13

      paul was told he would be bound and given to the gentiles ( for punishment)
      Coming over to us, he took Paul’s belt, tied his own hands and feet with it and said, “The Holy Spirit says, ‘In this way the Jewish leaders in Jerusalem will bind the owner of this belt and will hand him over to the Gentiles.'”

      • You are reflecting the traditional common Evangelical understanding here.

        Most of us have been trained to blindly accept this tradition, without question and without examining the text of Luke’s narrative. [Acts 19:21- 27:1] We have been “bound in spirit” for too long- but behold, God is releasing us now.

        When I was at Dallas Theological Seminary, I stayed after class one day to talk with one of the professors. He had me open my Bible and read Acts 20:22, where Luke records the words of Paul’s speech to the Ephesian elders, saying: “compelled by the Spirit I am going to Jerusalem.”

        For this professor, Paul’s claim about himelf in this one verse, recorded under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit by Luke, was the “trump card.” It was the end of any discussion, it couldn’t be questioned or examined. Paul said this so it must be true. Period. Luke’s entire narrative about Paul’s journey [Acts 19:21- 27:1] had to be interpreted through the lens of Paul’s claim about himself in Acts 20:22, and it MUST be true because Paul said it.

        What about all the numerous other parts of the narrative that indicate Paul was speaking falsely [Acts 20:22] in the midst of walking in disobedience to God?

        The Paulist would reason: “Well, Paul was right, so they all must have been wrong, even if their intentions were good- Jesus, the Holy Spirit, Agabus, Luke, others who ‘Through the Spirit they urged Paul not to go on to Jerusalem.’ [Acts 21:4] O, but they didn’t understand Paul. They didn’t know what they were talking about. The noble Apostle Paul is our hero, a model of maturity, he wouldn’t let himself be swayed by anyone, and he resolutely went to Jerusalem even though everyone was against him – almost like a second Christ, for the sake of the Gentiles…”

        This Dallas Seminary professor didn’t mention the fact that LUKE wrote the Book of Acts, not Paul. So apparently, the voice of Paul is equal to the voice of God, even if Paul didn’t write it but only spoke it…… This view of Paul is, practically speaking, essentially the same as the view Muslims have toward Muhammad. “Neither his life example nor his teachings can be examined or questioned – he never intentionally disobeyed God, because he said so, so he doesn’t need another witness because he speaks for God. If you disagree you’re an infidel heretic.”

        Many Evangelicals, including many pastors, teachers, missionaries, and other leaders, are bound in spirit by the “evil spirit of Paul.”

        In comparing Jesus’ journey to Jerusalem with Paul’s journey to Jerusalem, the most important thing is not the opinions of the people around them. What is most important is GOD’s opinion. God’s opinion about Paul going to Jerusalem is clear in the pages of the Bible- “get out and stay out,” according to Jesus and the Holy Spirit. But Paul disobeyed God.

        It was fine for most people to go to Jerusalem. But for Paul to ignore the clear voice of the Holy Spirit telling him specifically not to go at that time was disobedience. God didn’t want Paul to die in Jerusalem like a Muslim martyr. Jesus wanted Paul to go far away to the Gentiles, and Paul knew that. So pouting that he was “ready to die in Jerusalem for the name of the Lord Jesus” was simply a commitment to willful disobedience.

        If you read Luke’s account, you will see that Paul actually did have the chance to die OUTSIDE Jerusalem “for the name of the Lord Jesus” but he didn’t want to. So Paul’s journey to Jerusalem wasn’t really about Jesus- it was about himself- Paul the Jezebel Pastor. Since Paul had a “messiah complex” perhaps he wanted to go down in a blaze of glory, but God prevented that, fortunately.

        But I’m glad the story has a happy ending- if you read the end of the Book of Acts.

        • I don’t understand why everyone is claiming the spirit spoke to them…people do that today and it is imagination, not fact

          but this story continues and the trip to Jerusalem is confirmed again here

          The following night the Lord stood near Paul and said, “Take courage! As you have testified about me in Jerusalem, so you must also testify in Rome.” acts 23:11

          so Luke said paul said the spirit moved him to go, then the followers said not to go because he would suffer, then the lord approved of paul testifying of him in Jerusalem.

          maybe what it meant is that the spirit told the followers he would suffer so they decided to tell him not to go…which is different from the spirit forbidding Paul to go

          • Luke records, as a personal eyewitness present at the time:
            “Through the Spirit they urged Paul not to go on to Jerusalem. But when our time was up, we left and continued on our way.” [Acts 21:4-5]

            The Holy Spirit here IS clearly forbidding Paul to “go on to Jerusalem” at that particular time. And this is not out of context; it is completely consistent with Luke’s entire narrative [Acts 19:21- 27:1]
            There is nothing here about “the followers said not to go because he would suffer.” That is reading something into the text which simply isn’t there.

            Likewise, to say “the Lord approved of Paul testifying of him in Jerusalem” is reading something into the text of Acts 23:11. This isn’t completely baseless, and if this one verse is looked at out of any other context, it would be a fairly logical assumption. However, it would still be an assumption, it isn’t true, and it DOES need to be looked at in context.

            This is a case of starting with a faulty assumption (God called Paul to go to Jerusalem because Paul said so) and reading things into the text to support this faulty assumption- rather than asking ourselves, is this faulty assumption really true?

            Another place where most of us Evangelicals have been trained to think in this faulty way is with the texts in the Gospels dealing with Jesus choosing the Twelve Apostles.

            We start with the faulty assumption that “Apostle = sent one.” (Really, Apostle = Witness – 12 personal witnesses of the entire ministry of Jesus who were with Him.)

            Then, we focus almost always on just one of the 3 Gospel accounts, Matthew 10:1-5, which alone, out of context, appears to support our faulty assumption that “Apostle = sent one”. But Matthew did not necessarily organize his writings chronologically- that is also a faulty assumption.

            We are programmed not compare Matthew chapter 10 with Mark chapter 3 and Luke chapters 6-9. Mark writes “He appointed twelve- designating them apostles- that they might be with him…[Mark 3:14] That is the first thing- having been with Jesus personally, for 3+ years. Not “being sent.” Mark doesn’t write that the Apostles were immediately sent out at that time.

            In Luke, Jesus appoints the Apostles in chapter 6, and sends them out in chapter 9. Clearly, the Apostles were NOT sent out immediately after they were appointed. And this doesn’t contradict Matthew, it contradicts the false assumption we’ve had about the text of Matthew 10:1-5, out of context. According to God, Apostles means 12 witnesses, not “sent ones”.

            Here is a comparative story from the Bible.

            “The LORD Yahweh provided a great fish to swallow Jonah, and Jonah was inside the fish three days and three nights.

            From inside the fish, Jonah prayed to the LORD Yahweh his God.
            He said:
            ‘In my distress I called to the LORD Yahweh, and he answered me. From the depths of the grave I called for help, and you listened to my cry…’

            And the LORD Yahweh commanded the fish, and it vomited Jonah onto dry land.” [Jonah 1:17-2:10]

            God spoke to Jonah in the belly of the whale to encourage him, and God pointed him back in the direction he was supposed to be going.

            Does this mean that God approved when “Jonan ran away from the LORD and headed for Tarshish” ? [Jonah 1:3] Does this mean that God REALLY wanted Jonah to go to Tarshish first, before going to Nineveh?

  23. Richard,

    How are you doing? Are you writing out your testimony?

  24. Hi DJ. How are you friend? I n busy for sure, not to mention battling a bad case of bronchitis I caught from my wife, but I have been having trouble with my mail client. I need to fix this in order to get on the address you gave me. I’ll get back to you. Happy Thanksgiving.

  25. Richard,

    Okay, thanks for getting back to me. Take care and Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.

  26. To all the skeptic’s that has thought me crazy for the last 2 years. This is an article you need to read. See who running the world here. Its Mr. 666 himself . The below is from CNN

    Pope Francis and Vatican officials expressed hope that Palestinians and Israelis can forge a peace agreement “as soon as possible” as Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu visited the pontiff Monday, the Vatican said. The meeting with Netanyahu at the Vatican’s Apostolic Palace comes months ahead of Francis’ anticipated trip to the Holy Land, a biblical region that includes Israel and the Palestinian territories.
    Netanyahu also met with the Vatican’s secretary of state, Archbishop Pietro Parolin.
    The discussions focused on “the complex political and social situation in the Middle East, with particular reference to the reinstatement of negotiations between Israelis and Palestinians, expressing hope that a just and lasting solution respecting the rights of both parties may be reached as soon as possible,” the Vatican said.
    Pope Francis is expected to visit Israel on May 25-26, an official Israeli source told CNN last month. The Vatican would not confirm the exact dates of the trip.
    Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas invited Francis to travel to the Palestinian territories during Abbas’ visit to the Vatican in October.
    Pope Francis met with Israeli President Shimon Peres at the Vatican in April. A Vatican communique issued after that meeting said they had discussed the hope for a speedy resumption of direct talks between Israelis and Palestinians.

      many have tried to forge a peace treaty, including the USA. The Oslo treaty is an example. Remember, the antichrist just confirms the covenant, he does not initiate it. and the bible does not say it is a public event. it could be a private affair and a conspiracy against Israel.

  27. Yes Marianne – I just believe that the Pope is going to be a Major Player in it all. The Protestant church’s will even be more influenced to join forces with the Pope and back the ONE World Government. Their already hundreds of Protestants and Catholic signed in with the One World government. I Also believe that America could be gone by the time this comes to a head. The Prophet had the Vision of America in ruins by Nature or Bombs. I believe it will come to pass. Everything else he has said has come to pass. I see the Beast as the One World Nations – with the False Prophet of Universal religion the Catholic church as Leader of all other religions in this great beastly One world Government. Rev. 17:13 tells us they all “come to ONE MIND” but it is just for a short season. We just have to look at the World right now and see it is in complete ” humanism” and Idolatry goes with that spirit, even all our religions as well. The “great wound” has already been healed many years ago. Rev. 13:2-3 it talks about the Nations and Beasts and says the Dragon gave HIM singular his power. And HIS SEAT – the seat of authority. What other religion has a Seat of Authority as the Popes seat in the Vatican. Its a very deceiving SEAT of Paganism mixed with Christianity. That is as bad as it gets. I think of Israel in her day connected to Rome. And the Catholic church in our day connected to the ONE WORLD GOVERNMENT which has to have a religion that if it were possible would deceive even Christians and ALL people’s religion. The Universal Church is the only System of Religion that can do thin.

    God bless you – Lighthouse

  28. WARNING: 8 Super-Signs in the Heavens

  29. This is an interesting blog. I am a believer as well – but I am leery of experience-based Christianity. I am also wary of end-times obsessed churches. Can you reassure me that I will find doctrinally sane and sound reasoning here?

    • drew

      I would agree to be discerning.

      End times is a reality, and we can study it without being obsessed by it.

      I write about other things too. there are about 700 pages here, so there is a variety of topics.

      This particular page is about a dream I had 40 years ago, so it has nothing to do with “doctrine.” But it is seen as insightful into how God was showing me how difficult my life would be.

      If you want to see if something is sound and reasonable, ask a question and see what kind of answer you get. you will have to distinguish between other people answering you and me answering you also.

      Debate is allowed as long as people are polite about it.

      and how each person interprets scripture may be different here….so I ask people if they disagree to state what they believe and give scripture and reasoning with their interpretation.

      the idea is to get people to think…they may start out thinking one way, and with debate, changing their views to something else…

      examples are : does rapture occur, when might it occur, what does Paul mean by his emphasis on grace as more important than obedience to the law, how important is the law now that we are under grace, who is the beast of revelation, are current events described in the bible, how does the 6th seal actually occur from a scientific viewpoint….etc..

      • This vidoe summarize what some folks see and others do not. What is unfolding right before our sleepy eyes.

        The evidence presented is – very interesting when you consider the many pages within Heaven Awaits.

      • Thank you for your thoughtful response.
        I found your blog through Anita Fuentes the evangelist. I will start exploring your 700 + pages – and I invite you to check out Connect/Hook as well.
        My blog is more poetry-based so it depends on whether you go for that sort of thing…

        Best wishes in Christ –

          I know of anita…

          I like poetry too…. 🙂

          I have several pages with poems on them.

          yours sound like rap poetry from the first few poems.

  30. drew,

    I think the words of Paul to Timothy apply to his letters and the reading of the Word today.

    “Consider what I say, for the Lord will give you understanding in everything” (2 Timothy 2:7).

    As for attempting to write out sound reasoning and not insanity or twisting of Scriptures (Luke 9:41) – I think what I posted below qualifies as intelligent investigation and a sincere effort, promoting the Good News.



    There are some of my posts that some folks say are “insane”. I don’t think so, but that is my opinion.


    Psalm 25

  31. In agreement with the spirit of my brother DJ’s post here,

    I am adding the words of the humble, anonymous author of the Letter to the Hebrews. This author specifically mentioned “our brother Timothy” [Hebrews 13:23] and therefore he must have been quite familiar with Paul’s “way of life” and also Paul’s words such as “I urge you to imitate me” [1 Corinthians 4:16] )

    “Remember your leaders, who spoke the word of God to you. CONSIDER THE OUTCOME of their way of life and imitate their faith. Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.” [Hebrews 13:7-8]

    • are you insinuating that the writer was referring to Paul? if so, where is the confirmation?

      • Most people would agree theologically that the exhortation here to “consider the outcome of their way of life” should apply to ALL spiritual leaders past, present and future. Of course Paul would not be an “exception to the rule” if we are thinking clearly.

        Yes, I do believe the writer of Hebrews was referring to some specific leaders, including Paul.

        The scriptures I quoted above provide backup for what I could describe as an “informed Bible-based opinion.” It is abundantly clear from Acts and Paul’s letters that Paul and Timothy had a close lifelong relationship. Timothy appears to have been closer to Paul than anyone else, based on the content of the Bible. So if the author of Hebrews was also in close relationship with Timothy, I find it hard to believe that he didn’t know quite a bit about Paul and Paul’s ministry also.

        I admit, it’s an opinion, it’s an assumption, not 100% proof. But even if the author didn’t know anything about Paul, the exhortation should still apply to Paul and Paul’s way of life anyway, just as to any other leader. The author closes this thought putting the emphasis back on Jesus who does not change- and Jesus is where the focus belongs.

      • One more piece of evidence for my opinion that the writer of Hebrews was “referring to Paul” in [Hebrews 13:7] is him also writing:

        “fix your thoughts on Jesus, THE APOSTLE and high priest whom we confess.” [Hebrews 3:1]

        This usage of the word “Apostle” is unique in the New Testament.

        I believe that the author of Hebrews knew God’s definition of “Apostle”, and knew that Paul wasn’t one. Yet also knew that Paul was constantly calling himself an apostle and telling people to fix their thoughts on him rather than on Jesus. (I became your father, imitate me, follow my example, follow me as I follow Christ, I have become all things to all men, I bear on my body the marks of Jesus, become like me for I became like you, etc.)

  32. Shalom Marianne,

    I haven’t been to your blog for a while, but felt compelled to visit today, and I saw your post. Perhaps the hooded figures represent hidden areas of darkness in your own life, things that are frightening because they are shadowy and mysterious. But when brought to the light, they are revealed for what they are. He is light, and in him is no darkness. The one who loves his brother abides in the light and there is no cause for stumbling. The things of your past can no longer hurt you when you realize that God can bring light into the darkest places, and turn everything around for good and for his purposes. The people who have hurt you in the past will no longer be able to exert their defiling presence upon your soul when you reclaim they lost pieces of yourself that you gave away unawares and release them to the heavenly courtroom.

  33. I was reading through your Dream #10 about the dark hoods, and it caused me to think about the new cult that has risen in the U.K. they show up at public gatherings wearing black hoods and pale faces.. it is sad that they do not know Jesus Christ 😦 God Bless

  34. […] (Picture from https://heavenawaits.wordpress.com/dream-10-multiple-hooded-figures/) […]

  35. Dear Marianne,
    I visited your blog (very nicely written by the way.) I was wondering where you found the image of the hooded figure in dream 10? It’s beautiful and I would love to use it for the cover of a book I’m publishing, but I need to find who owns the copyrights. I do hope this message finds you fast and I’d really greatly appreciate if it you could let me know as soon as possible.
    Thank you very much in advance.

      I just did a google search for angel of death, or hooded figures, and I found this.

      I tried to pick something that did not say copyrighted.

      however, since then, I have been told that EVERY image on the internet is considered copyrighted….even it is just a picture of an apple.

      I am using it for educational purposes, and not for profit, so I have had no complaints

      in your case, you want it for a book….maybe you can find the author and get permission…or maybe there is no official owner of the image….

      so good luck on your search

  36. I am kinda freakin out right now. They visited occasionally until my mid twenties. Haven’t seen them since. You cannot see inside the robe it is a veil. In one i was taken deep inside myself through the pathway of a river of . . . .
    It snatched my essence as if it owned it, pulled it in, and a river of whispers like waters poured into and in that moment I realized . . . . As it released me i was in a state of spiritual ecstasy. It pulled me back and spoke in englich very quickly. “Remember what you have learned.” I have wondered my entire life if anyone had experienced beings like them. Their robe is always different. But they are neither good nor evil. Please tell what I am. I have exhausted man’s resources searching to no avail.

  37. Dear Marianne, I am a college professor of nursing science, & this kind of encounter is foreign to me. I had this disturbing figure in a dream about 3 days ago. It was in a snowy tree jumping from branch to branch as if it were second nature or just easy. On this snowy night, I could clearly see the snow blowing however I could not feel the cold. This figure was on google images. I clicked it because it is spot on to what I saw as it stared at me with no face. I simply can’t get this off of my mind… It is exactly what I saw, & I attempted to run. I did not make it far as my legs sunk into the snowy ground and locked in. I tried to yell at the top of my lungs for help but maybe it was my sleeping face in the pillow because it only came across as a muffled whisper. To make matters worse a dreary darkness began to gather around me on the ground as if the figure was about to land on my back or a cloud was quickly covering the moon… Then I woke up & could get back to sleep for the fear that the nightmare would continue where it left off…

    • cliff

      first of all, re read the post with the explanations as to what these things are.

      the snow represents hard work or obstacles but success at the end.

      it could also indicate a season, ie winter time.

      this is either a past experience, or a future one, unless you are having a problem at this time, which makes it current …

      the figure is the angel of death which could either be a real physical life threat, or a threat to your livelihood, reputation, finances, health etc.

      your efforts are to escape this bad experience, which takes all your strength

      there are real threats in this world all around us….for example, north korea wants to bomb us…and start WW 3…..that is a real death threat….or there could be a dangerous storm which could come near you…..

      this could also be a threat from your immediate surroundings…that maybe you do not know about yet. our world can be deceptive…..

      Put all this danger in God’s hands, and ask him daily for his protection over you, and to fight enemies with his angels, and to teach you how to discern evil, and fight it yourself, with his guidance

      I do not know what your spiritual belief system is, so that is all I will say. If you want to discuss it more, you are welcome to write back

  38. […] HoodedFigure […]

My dream starts with me laying in my bed I close my eyes an start to sink into the bed only to float down into my same bed but only this world is totally the opposite dark evil so I get out of bed go out my front door turn right down the street start walking towards the house at the end of the street as I do my surroundings strat to turn into a massive cathedral old world gothic style at the end I see 7 cloaked black figures 3 to one side 3 to other side one in front middle I drawn closer to realize they are over 20 ft tall as I walk up to the one in middle he raises up starts to lift his hood as he says my name like I’ve never heard it said before putting the fear of God in me then before I see his face I am awake back in my own bed each night it goes little further so ya idk what to think

    • christopher

      From experience over a lifetime, the hooded figures seem to represent events where you could either die or be destroyed in some other way.

      evaluate each future experience for the threat it holds, pray for protection, and fight back!

      these are tests of faith, they do NOT have to represent defeats!

      you can have victory
