This morning I woke up out of a “night vision”. It was not quite a dream, but more like a living experience, which I experienced very much like in the physical dimension of this world.
That experience was obviously in the spirit; that means it was an experience in the spiritual dimension, where I was present in my spirit, so it was not just a dream. In that experience I was speaking with someone; while I was there with that person, I had full consciousness and understanding of all that I saw and heard.
When I had come to my full senses in the physical realm, I realized that most details had been wiped out of my memory. I felt really strange, because I knew that just a moment earlier, I had full consciousness and understanding of everything that I was discussing with that person. Even so, by the time I was fully awake, I could no longer remember what the face of that person looked like. All I could remember was a blurred image of a presence, and a few of the words that I had heard.
The reason I am sharing these details, is to say that I believe this to be a significant message that was relayed to me from the “other realm”, by that person, who spoke to my spirit, while my body was asleep.
While I was in that encounter in the spirit, I knew that the person who spoke to me was trustworthy; someone who knew what was being said, was a person of dignity, who spoke with authority.
When I woke up, I could only remember the message which I believe I have the responsibility to make known. The information I received was that in this year, there will be great manifestations of hatred, anger, wrath, and violence.
It was also shown to me that there will be such manifestations especially among the people of certain religious groups, which are known to use violence as a principle of their religion. They are known to instill hatred in their people, and incite them to acts of terrorism for the purpose of death of their enemies.
I recall that when I spoke with that person, various events were shown to me on locations of the world, of violent uprisings caused by hatred, targeting the destruction of their enemies. I remember seeing events from the future, as if they were happening at that moment.
I also remember how I responded when I saw all that. I said, therefore I must share a message, that we must declare that this year 2021 will be a year of love, compassion, forgiveness, praying for our enemies and blessing them.
If this year has been targeted to be a year of hatred, evil, wrath, violence, and death, then we must respond by manifesting the opposite spirit, by causing the Light of God to manifest through our words, actions, and prayers; a time to put our faith to work.
We must not repay evil for evil, but our response is to bless and pray for the people who are used by evil, that God might grant them a spirit of repentance so that they may escape eternal damnation.
Philippians 2:15 that you may become blameless and harmless, children of God without fault in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world, 16 holding fast the word of life, so that I may rejoice in the day of Christ that I have not run in vain or labored in vain.
Romans 12:17 Repay no one evil for evil. Have regard for good things in the sight of all men. 18 If it is possible, as much as depends on you, live peaceably with all men.
Matthew 5:43 “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ 44 “But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you, 45 “that you may be sons of your Father in heaven; for He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust. 46 “For if you love those who love you, what reward have you? Do not even the tax collectors do the same? 47 “And if you greet your brethren only, what do you do more [than others?] Do not even the tax collectors do so? 48 “Therefore you shall be perfect, just as your Father in heaven is perfect.
