I was hoping someone would be blessed as I was blessed by it. Sometimes we have grown up with teachings that we think we know or understand until God starts showing how our mindset does not quite “get it” yet, so His teaching has been a revelation to my spirit, and while I do not realize the whole scope of it (and we may not until heaven), God is feeding me piece by piece and encouraging my heart in Him and I can feel my strength being encouraged by Him.
Also, I am reminded of the picture of the bride leaning on her Beloved as she comes out of the desert. During my time of intense sickness, I could see that picture as a Bride almost war-torn leaning on the Bridegroom in weariness after the battle, but I am realizing now in my healing that I am the bride leaning on her Beloved, because He is My Strength, and the leaning into Him is resting on His strength, letting His strength be My strength! And in the leaning and resting into Him and on Him is a drawing of strength!

I have never wanted suffering and did not like to look on to others who were suffering, but it is a place where God’s wisdom will grant revelation through that time of suffering and bring a heart of compassion like no other time for others who suffer.
Also, agreeing in prayer with you. When I was so sick, I could feel when people were praying for me at times, and I relished their prayers! Prayer does have power!
Rose, you were talking in another post about how God would fall on you so heavily even in the ladies room when you were looking in the mirror. I remember when God’s Presence came one day while I was in the bathroom (in the shower), and I was shocked because I had this religious mentality that God could not look on me in that state since in the Old Testament priests even had to be careful in what state they approached the altar. But God showed me that he was looking at me through the eyes of love just as I look on my animals with love even when they are doing their business in the yard. So I have become accustomed to letting God be God and if he comes with His Spirit while I am in the ladies room or in the kitchen doing dishes or even on my Nintendo playing games, I just welcome His Presence and realize He is just wanting time spent with me and sometimes just loving on me. So I do find it normal that God makes His Presence felt even in the most unusual places, and it’s wonderful!
Sorry, I tried to edit the date and I could not get it. The date was from Sept 30, 2013 not 2017. I reread this prophecy last night and today, and it was speaking to me currently, but in my log book the date was from 2013. Since it was reading so fresh to my spirit, I thought it was 2017, but on looking again at the date, it was from several years ago. God is refreshing me through past words He has spoken to me, and they are reading fresh in my spirit!
It is good to see you, Rose.
Ironically I had just been thinking of you this past week and actually thinking of getting in touch with you to see how you are doing. And also ironically, I had just spent last night going over some prior words of encouragement that God had spoken to me over the years, and then I saw that you had remarked on one of the very posts that I had just reread during the night…how providential!
I am finally exiting a very long season of illness, and finally getting back to health, but have not felt like getting on Open Heaven as of yet. But while I was rereading things God had personally spoken to me in encouragement, the words stirred up my spirit a bit. I had a dream several weeks ago which I did not post on Open Heaven at the time, but I shared it with some friends, and reading the Words from God last night also brought back that dream.
This is the dream:
I had a dream where some Mexican people were playing a song on their guitars – a very famous song which I just love and I think I started to sing in tongues along with the melody in the dream. When I woke up I was trying to remember the song, and I thought it was a famous song by the group “Abba”, the Swedish group I used to enjoy so much. But when I remembered the name Abba, I realized that the group name is also the name of God (Father), so I realized that part of the dream was from God. I think the song was Fernando, so I got on YouTube to hear the song and heard someone singing the words, and part of the lyrics, say, “I haven’t seen a rifle in your hands for many years”, and as I listened, I was hearing God speak that to my Spirit, that I had left the battlefield during this time of sickness and hadn’t carried my weapon (the Sword of His Spirit in mighty strength) for a while now. It was like He was saying it was time to get back in the battle again, to pick up my weapon (His sword) and wield it again. It was very precious.
This is the instrumental of the song and similar to what I heard in the dream from what I remember of it. The actual dream only had the melody.April 18, 2017 at 9:53 pm in reply to: Running Your Race! Jesus is Running With You!" – By Katie Barker, Australia #3551
This was such a blessing, it brought tears.

Really enjoyed reading this testimony! Blessed me.
Someone please help me to be able to copy and paste scripture content. My posts end up being mostly gibberish when I try to copy scripture. Is anyone else having so much trouble posting scripture?
A little word I felt or heard in the spirit today.
A day of battle, a day of champions, decreeing the battle/ the victory is the Lord’s! Assured the victory, the victor’s crown, going in at full strength, with the strength of the Lord. It is not the challenge that assures you the victor, but the One at your side going with you, who has gone before you, who assures you His victory. It is not whether you have strength in yourself but with His strength, you can compete and win. He has already gained the victory. In His Presence, you are armed with strength to wage war and gain confidence that the battle has been won on your behalf, to go in with fortitude and strength…
I read this, and parts of the post, particularly the scripture was so precious, it made me cry. The presence of the Lord was just somehow speaking to me in the scripture. I was not going to respond to your post even though parts of it were so precious, yet I heard in my spirit, “Tell him.” So I am letting you know that I read your post and it touched me.March 26, 2017 at 10:22 am in reply to: The Season of Singing Has Come! – Deborah Waldron Fry #3255
Loved this! Words of confirmation in this.March 24, 2017 at 2:57 pm in reply to: Rise up, O weary. I have overcome your faintheartedness. #3246
Somehow the post is not allowing to copy and paste scripture. So the scripture reference I tried to copy is all of Psalm 3 and Psalm 2:8-9.
Sorry for all the mess-up trying to post the scripture, I could not later erase it out.
