1234. Occurrence given to Raymond Aguilera on 12 February 1999 at 10:00 PM.
Carl G., and old friend in Christ, telephoned me and asked if Ron V., and I could come over for dinner and prayer. I was not really sure if I wanted to go for all the warfare I had been having and my back was still hurting. I felt very tired, but I said yes, and after Ron took a shower we left for Carl's house. As soon as I climbed into my car I started to become very sleepy. The closer we got to Carl's house the sleeper I got. Ron and I sat around while Carl fixed our dinner. I got so sleepy I had to ask Carl if he had a soft drink with some caffeine. He said he did not. I usually try to stay away from soft drinks, but I knew if I did not get something in my body with something to keep me awake I would fall asleep on this couch. I tried eating an orange and kept myself walking and moving just to keep myself awake, but nothing helped or worked. So I had to tell Carl I had to leave and go to the store and get a soft drink with some caffeine (I do not drink coffee). He and Ron looked at me sort of strange and surprised, but I knew I had to do something. After returning from the store, Carl served dinner and during dinner my sleepiness began to leave me.
Then after eating, we had Communion and prayed. Carl wanted to ask the Lord about the planting a new Vineyard church in Berkeley. He goes to a Vineyard Church in San Francisco and his church was moving to another location in San Francisco within weeks. So Carl wanted to ask the Lord if it would be alright to start a new Vineyard Church in Berkeley which is on the other side of the San Francisco Bay where Carl lives. The following was the Lord's response to our prayers.
Praying about the new Berkeley Vineyard church plant:
The gave me a vision of a gravestone which was leaning to one side with one or two flowers placed in a clear vase in front of the gravestone.
During this vision I was given a sense of the words, "An old death". Then the Lord said,"You have to die to yourself".
Then the Lord gave me a vision of an electric toothbrush. This seemed to mean to me that one had to clean ones mouth or what comes out of ones month. Ron, Carl and I, discussed some of the following scriptures:
Mat 15:11 What goes into a man's mouth does not make him 'unclean,' but what comes out of his mouth, that is what makes him 'unclean.'"
Mat 15:17 "Don't you see that whatever enters the mouth goes into the stomach and then out of the body?
Mat 15:18But the things that come out of the mouth come from the heart, and these make a man 'unclean.'
Mat 15:19For out of the heart come evil thoughts, murder, adultery, sexual immorality, theft, false testimony, slander.
Mat 15:20These are what make a man 'unclean'; but eating with unwashed hands does not make him 'unclean.'"
Luke 6:45 The good man brings good things out of the good stored up in his heart, and the evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in his heart. For out of the overflow of his heart his mouth speaks.
When we prayed for the San Francisco Vineyard church: Vision: The Lord gave me a vision of a large white sheet being held at each of the four corners and there was a big black ball in the center of the white sheet and the black ball was being thrown up and down by whoever was holding the white sheet from it's corners.
Then we began to pray for other things on our prayer list:
The Lord gave me an image of a clean White Beach with a White Candle in the air over the White Beach. Then the Lord said,"Go to the Beach!" (The White Candle represented Jesus standing over the Beach or the Body of Christ.)
This made me think of the scriptures about the sand:
Gen 22:17I will surely bless you and make your descendants as numerous as the stars in the sky and as the sand on the seashore. Your descendants will take possession of the cities of their enemies,
Gen 32:12 But you have said, 'I will surely make you prosper and will make your descendants like the sand of the sea, which cannot be counted.'"
Then this White Candle changed into Jesus Christ walking along the sand. At one point I could see His foot steps make impressions on the sand. Each grain of sand was a Christian. The Lord was showing me that these foot impressions were His callings on individual believers or the burdens He had placed on believers carrying their cross. By Him making the foot impression on the grains of sand, also meant He was their covering. Then Ron mentioned the scripture:
2 Tim 3:12 In fact, everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted,
2 Tim 3:13while evil men and impostors will go from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived.
So we continued to pray; then the Lord said:
I am going to turn this world inside out and kick it like a football. I am going to bury man's church like that grave I showed you earlier, and you are going to wish you had a flower to place on it. Most of the Body of Christ thinks I am playing games, but the players have their scripts. The things are ready for the coming of the hammer and the sickle. The day of theology is finished! The day that the blood flows in the streets is here! The army in Heaven is prepared! The army on earth is getting ready.
At this point we stopped praying for the whole atmosphere of our prayer time dramatically changed and we stopped our prayer.
As the three of us discussed the above, Carl sensed we should proceed praying for our personal needs.
Then the Lord said to me,"Do you want to hear some more! Neighbor will betray neighbor. Mother will betray child. Parents will eat their children for food. Some of you will wish that you were dead, but I will not let you die. The Ark of the Covenant is ready! The hammer and sickle are ready! The fall of Babylon is ready! But that's enough for tonight!"
This really shocked us, for we wanted to pray for our personal needs, and the Lord spoke about the end times. The above hit me very hard, for I remembered telling the Lord that if I kept delivering messages like the one above, people were going to call me a doomsday prophet. The Lord relied, He did not care what names they called me. Only to do what He told me.
My problem was that I not only could see these things, but I could at times feel the pain of what I was seeing. So at that I told my brothers in Christ, I did not want to pray anymore. But my brother Carl did not want to stop. He still wanted to ask the Lord about the personal things. But I told him again I did not want to pray anymore. But he still wanted to. So we began once more to pray for the personal needs.
So the Lord said to me,"Since you want to hear some more!" Then the Lord began once more showing me visions.
The first vision was of people being burned alive.
This shocked me even more than what the Lord had revealed before. I felt like crying and leaving the room.
Then the next vision was of a hand held electric drill which was being used to drill out someone's left eye.
This was so vivid that I demanded the brothers to stop praying for I could not take anymore of what I was seeing. So we stopped, but later we did pray over Ron's ears and the Lord did not give me anymore end time visions. (over)
