Vision: The Icescape
4th March 2014
I saw this vision, yesterday.
A vast frozen area appeared before my eyes. It looked like this entire region had been iced over for years. Nothing and no one had entered this ice-covered expanse, in a long while.
I then saw people who were ushered into a passageway, to view this place. These men and women thought they were alone as they could not see each other.
As each one stood staring at the rugged icescape, everyone noticed that only certain sections of this vast area began to melt, whilst all else remained unmoved.
The selective thaws depicted unfulfilled goals, incomplete assignments, and unfulfilled dreams. For example, in the distance was a board upon which were entire mathematical calculations, with just the concluding numbers missing; elsewhere, a ball suspended over a basket, in another place, bags packed, ticket and maps on the table, love letters, appointment letters, letters from friends, letters offering friendship, money, partnerships etc.
The thaw revealed all such incidents that seemed poised to occur and to succeed, but never did, due to sudden intervening factors.
As the people gazed at the scene unfolding before them, each one shouted in amazement, as they individually recalled these past events.
Their eyes widened and their jaws dropped, “That was 38 years ago! How can I forget those incidents “, cried out one of the people, loudly, “many said I was cursed because no matter what I touched, it failed………”
There was a sudden silence and sadness.
All present there, had often wondered with some regret, about those years. How wonderful life would have been, had those sudden interventions not taken place. Their way of life would have taken a turn for the better; they would have been happy, prosperous, and joyful.
These were folks, who loved the Lord. As they stood there, instead of tears, they were surprised to feel a sense of peace come upon them. The Lord showed each of them that had it not been for His divine interventions 38 years ago, they would now have been severely injured in wrong relationships, or landed in troublesome places. Their foundations, reasonings, calculations all had been erroneous. Had they followed that path, which outwardly seemed like the road to success, some would have even landed in jails for serious crimes.
The people began to praise God for these divine interventions in their lives 38 years ago. No more regrets. They were grateful for all that the Lord had shown them.
The Icescape that was before them was now divinely wheeled away. All around was bright sunshine.
The people seeing that the frozen area was gone from before their eyes began to disperse that they may return to the place where they had been called from.
As they were walking away, I saw that some came to a sudden halt.
True, God had delivered them from their years of regrets, and they were grateful, yet they began to strongly sense that they had walked away too early.
Was it the Lord who told them to leave, or did they depart on their own, they wondered.
I saw some run back to the place, whilst the others slowly made their way there.
There before them was a long old bench. Upon it lay hard covered files. Each person excitedly ran to open their green ring binder. Inside were bits of paper, visiting cards, some had decorative cards with dried leaves or flowers; none of these were punched or clamped, but all were loosely placed in the files.
There were names, faces, and discarded ideas, and addresses and numbers that were scribbled on these bits of paper. Some of them recalled the reason for discarding those ideas. They had put aside projects because they were ‘before their time’, and had looked impossible to fulfill 38 years ago.
The people began jumping for joy. Though they had not yet acted on the information scribbled on those bits of paper, their significance was not lost on them. They now understood that on the one hand, 38 years ago, the Lord had intervened in their lives, to veer them away from disasters, yet He had kept hidden in those years, information, ideas, people, and connections, reserved for such a time as this.
And now He was revealing it to them.
“Thank You Lord,” they shouted at the top of their voices, “for You have kept the good wine until now.”
Each one in this vision, was shown that whatever the Lord linked them to from 38 years ago, be it situations, people, businesses, creativity etc, the changes would bring great joy and fullness.
They rejoiced for they could see that their latter days would be better than their former. That God had much good in store for them and great were the blessings that were yet to come.
10 And saith unto him, Every man at the beginning doth set forth good wine; and when men have well drunk, then that which is worse: but thou hast kept the good wine until now.
24 O Lord, how manifold are thy works! in wisdom hast thou made them all: the earth is full of thy riches.
12 So the Lord blessed the latter end of Job more than his beginning: for he had fourteen thousand sheep, and six thousand camels, and a thousand yoke of oxen, and a thousand she asses.
