Notes: The photograph was taken September 7, 2019. It was part of a message to me regarding a promise made to me by God. It was, and is, a promise that I find hard to believe. It is one of those laughable, incomprehensible deals…like when Abraham told Sarah she would conceive a child in her old age after being barren for 80 years! She laughed. Well, this is one of those! I know God does not lie and that His will always comes to pass. So, when this promise comes to pass, I will disclose the entire set of photographs that go with this one photograph (there’s quite a few). The most amazing part of the revelation of these particular photographs, and the whole deal was amazing, was that David told me to look at the photographs backwards and then the promise was revealed! God sort of pulled a Moses on me…when He turned Moses’ staff into a snake. Well, these pictures, what He put in the sky, matched what David was telling me before, which I recorded every word! Maybe some wonder why I’m so bold in the Lord. This is why. He revealed Himself to me profoundly in all of the photographs He had me take and events that took place in person. The photographs are so revealing to me because David told me about them BEFORE I took them! One day, you will understand this and see GOD!
*God the ‘I Am’—Moses said to God, ‘Suppose I go to the Israelites and say to them, ‘The God of your fathers has sent me to you,’ and they ask me, ‘What is His name? Then what shall I tell them?’ God said to Moses, ‘I AM who I AM. This is what you are to say to the Israelites: ‘I AM has sent me to you.” God also said to Moses, ‘Say to the Israelites, ‘The Lord, the God of your fathers—the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob—has sent me to you.’ This is My name forever, the name by which I am to be remembered from generation to generation.’—Exodus 3:13-15
‘Punishments of Me’ was written July 10, 2017. I was struggling. I had a job to do for the Lord, I always knew it, and it had been years since the promise ‘Write and they will come.’ They didn’t come. They still haven’t come. But then I know the truth of my work now. This work isn’t for this generation. It is for the future. This generation, I’m told, has failed.Continue reading “‘Punishments of Me’”
