The Tribulation and the Time of Jesus’ Return

Q: Okay I promise I’ll leave you alone. You said that you see us in the times and half times. Isn’t that during the tribulation in Revelation? Could this mean that we are living in time of Jesus return?

A: Remember, the questions you have are questions many others are wondering about also.  There’s a great deal that is left unexplained in our world.  Now is the time in our lives that many things can be asked and answered.  So, I welcome any question that someone may have gnawing at them.

To answer your questions: I want to preface by saying that this whole topic can easily have (and has had) books written to explain this.  It would be worth it to read some of them.

Okay.  Here’s how I’ll start to answer this.  (Don’t worry too much if you don’t understand all of it.  It’s on the Internet and anyone who wants can return to it at will, reread it and understand a little more each time.)

Both the inner experience and the outer experience of that described in Revelations are possible in the same time frame.  The consciousness transformation described in Revelations must happen within individuals to prepare the way for Christ to return in the same body in which He ascended.  It is the opening within individuals to the Christ within, and the establishing of the Christ Spirit within the consciousness of individuals that sets in motion and brings forth the manifestation of Jesus Christ in the body.  One will not happen without the other.

The Christ Spirit within each individual is the Highest Self within the individual – that part of our consciousness that has never left the realm of the Father.  As Christ said, “I and the Father are One.”  and “I am in you, as the Father is in me.”  These statements can bring forth the awareness that within all of us, the Christ Spirit resides, and at the same time, is always One with the Father.  As we open to this very tangible aspect of who we are, and pour forth this aspect into the world, (as the pouring forth of the water at the wedding of Canaan)  our Higher Self – our Christ Self- we bring forth the Spirit of Christ into manifestation in the world we live in (the water turning into wine.)   As we continue to manifest the Christ Spirit through the different ways to manifest love, – the fruits of the Spirit, such as forgiveness, mercy, patience, humility, kindness, love, compassion, understanding, etc – we “lay down the palm fronds” that allow the Christ Spirit to enter into the manifested Earth – the manifested Earth being the body that was flesh and blood, made from the dust of the Earth, that ascended and will be reestablished at the designated time the Father determines.

So, in a vision, I saw that we are in the times and half times.  But, these “times and half times” are not designated by a calendar, but by the process of transformation within the hearts and minds of human beings.  Tribulations galore are happening in our world – not just to the world at large, but to individuals in this world.  The Earth itself does not experience our tribulations.  We as people experience them.

Yet, transformation is happening also.  It is each individual’s freewill choice to decide how and when to address the tribulations that each individual faces.  By facing these challenges in life, by transforming our response to life’s situations, our own transformation can occur.

Many souls now alive in the Earth work to continue to open to and manifest the Christ Spirit within through prayers, through meditation, through the study of dreams, through health efforts, through cooperation, through forgiveness, through courage, through loving kindness, through support of others, through service, and through any other way that any individual is inspired to manifest the Creative Spirit that guides our efforts – (meaning ‘creative ideas’.)

Metaphysically speaking:  the efforts to bring forth the Christ Spirit on this planet, have the effect of raising the vibration that exists in the world.  This raising of the vibration of the planet itself creates an environment which sets the stage for the Highest Vibration – the Christ Spirit vibration – the vibration of pure Love – the vibration of the Light of Love – the “God in Man” vibration to then enter into this physical realm.  It is as has been said before – “I stand at the door and knock.”  We need only prepare the way, and open the door.  And we are working towards that.

SIDE NOTE:  The calamities around the globe are NOT a demonstration of the vibration lowering in the planet.  If the vibration were not raising in the planet, we would not be having all these calamities.  This fact may not be easily understood, but it is much like turning up the heat under a pot of water to purify the water.  As the level of vibration raises – the temperature – the pot boils releasing the energy within the water.  If there were no raising of the temperature vibration – the pot would not boil – leaving all energy dormant within the water.  In this metaphor, the impurities of the water cannot be removed without the water boiling and turning to steam.  The transformation happens and the impurities are no longer part of the water. (Here, the impurities are hatred, prejudice, criticism, judging others, intolerance, selfishness, etc.)

To purify the water, the vibration must be raised.  Now, to continue with the water metaphor, the water – people – don’t always want to be purified.  The fact that the Earth is to become a place for Spirit to manifest in greater and greater ways means that those who do not choose transformation – the alignment with the Christ Spirit vibration – the alignment with brotherhood, loving kindness, patience, perseverance, forgiveness, acceptance, tolerance, understanding, etc, – may not be allowed to re-enter into another cycle of lives in the Earth, until such time that they have a closer matching vibrational environment allowing them to return to the Earth realm and work again on themselves, to face the impurities within themselves.

God is the God of Mercy and Patience – Infinite Mercy and Infinite Patience.  As such God will not allow any soul to be left behind but give opportunities for each soul to turn back to God until even the last soul is on the path back to God.  Christ is committed to this when He said, “He who would be first, must be last.” Mark 9:35.  “Whoever would be greatest among you must serve all the rest.”  Matthew 23:11.  He recognized this for Himself.

RETURN TO THE TOPIC:

There are predictions from thousands of years ago describing this time period and the potential that this time period can offer.  These are predictions that so many people have no idea even exist.  Each person has the right to choose whether they will participate and “wake up” to all that is possible, or “stay asleep” and see nothing out of the ordinary.  And this fact means that for some who are awake to this, they see that it is the times and half times, and for preparing the way of the Lord.  And for others, who are asleep to this, the see nothing and therefore, it isn’t.  Remember, 2000 years ago, to many, it was just another day as usual, with nothing special happening “according to them.”  But, to some, it was the Day of the Lord that came upon them.

This Jesus knows and hence why He said, “Many will say, ‘Here is Christ or there is Christ.”  pointing to external events and people coming forth fostering the belief that it is only an “external” event.  But, those who have opened to the Christ within, will know when that which is within them manifests in the world.  Those who work to continuously bring forth the Spirit of Love towards others, will recognize that Spirit of Love in the Earth from already having known it and shared it from within their own heart, mind and soul.

Finally, I add that Jesus is already at work in the Earth and has never stopped.  Many people have had personal direct encounters of Jesus and Mary.  We know of personal stories from Medjugorje, Fatima, Lourdes, and others.  One book I recommend is “I Am With You Always”, by G. Scott Sparrow.

Prayer, Meditation, Edgar Cayce and Hurricanes

While Edgar Cayce himself participated in drilling for oil in the 1920′s, and the readings tried to help him, he didn’t succeed at that particular time.  The readings considered the venture worth pursuing, though. However, what he did succeed in at that time, and during his life, was help people to learn the power and influence of meditation and prayer.

We can see this now as being a powerful force to help in facing disasters here on Earth.  In my own work, I was able to psychically see that after Hurricane Katrina, the outpouring of prayers for the entire Gulf Region – the outpouring of prayers coming from across the country – brought forth the Christ Spirit to protect the Gulf during the entire 2006 hurricane season and 1/2 of the 2007 hurricane season.  While meteorologists were baffled, expecting a great many hurricanes, it was a quiet season and they didn’t know why.  I did.

Skeptics could have a field day with this vision I describe.  But, it brings us face to face with the challenge.  Do we believe in prayer and meditation or not?  Do we believe prayer can change things in this world?  Do we believe the power of thousands and even millions praying and meditating can change the future, change the Earth, and change situations for the better?

What about the questions, “What are we thinking that will happen that will let us know that our prayers have been answered? How will it appear?  Will there be signs in the sky telling us, ‘Your prayer has been answered from XYZ happening to ABC happening’?”

I don’t think so.  Who else saw or even considered that it was the prayers of the many that resolved the 2006 hurricane season?  But, if we believe that prayer and meditation can change things, then we are going to have to expect things to not happen as they may be expected.  And we may not fully be aware that we did in fact change the future with our prayers and meditations.

Edgar Cayce and the readings spoke often of the power of God.  The readings speak of Christ and His current and continuous involvement in our lives.  Books abound about personal contact with Jesus Christ and other spiritual beings.  All of these describe a very active involvement by the Divine with our personal and collective lives.  And so, we have to decide if we believe in prayer and meditation or not, because prayer and meditation are practices that can make direct contact with the Divine.   Edgar Cayce’s readings are clear about this over and over again.

Many believe it is important to pray and meditate but yet expect nothing to come from it.   That’s like playing the lottery, but throwing  the ticket away in the trash, the same moment we buy it.  Putting effort forth, but expecting nothing from that effort.

I think I remember E.C.’s readings saying, (someone may have to help me with the reading number)  “Expect much, you’ll gain much.  Expect little and you won’t be disappointed.”

I think this is telling us that God is eager to be an active participant in creating this world that we live in, and affecting our lives in a healing and supportive way.  But, God won’t take away our freewill to choose to bolt and lock the door before He enters, when we’ve just finished inviting Him in.

What I tell people is something that I’ve come to realized for myself from reading and studying the Edgar Cayce readings.  I don’t know if it’s specifically in the  readings, but the readings have helped me to be aware of this.

Don’t trust the doubt we have in God.  Don’t trust the doubt we have in ourselves, our prayers, or our meditations.  Doubt is not truth.  We may have it but it’s not true and need not be trusted.  God’s readiness to be active in our lives is the truth.

In praying for any disaster anywhere, right now, let’s not tell God what He is capable of or not capable of.   Let’s ask Him to show us.  Studying the readings have helped me to believe that God rejoices in the opportunities to show us what He can do.  A new paradigm is being created on this planet – by God – through us and with us.  Through our prayers and meditations, we can participate in this new paradigm in ways we could never have come up with by ourselves.  But, God won’t do it without us if we decide to not participate.

WDE 2 of 3: #2

July 10, 2014

It is a time to be alert to potential problems even though the beginning signs are 11 months away – June, 2015.  With regards to the Islands of the NE coast of South America, specifically off the coast of Venezuela – what I see right now, I’m calling it “potential”.  I’m not going to scream out warnings unless the time approaches, and I still then see what I have been.  I want to take into account the possibility that I could be off, in what I see.

Never-the-less, I’m currently seeing these islands being in the direct path of that collection of events which all together will be considered a major destructive event.  I see a potential of it being worse than the Japanese Tsunami/Nuclear plant disaster in its totality, albeit not in it’s initial impact.  It’s the cumulative effect that makes it a major destructive event.

I will add information as I continue to gain it.  Again, if all things stay the same, signs will begin to come forward in June, 2015, increasing in July, 2015. If it were up to me, I’d send as many research vessels into that area as possible to gain whatever information can be measured during the months of June and July of 2015, and into August of 2015.  However, if it were up to me, I would also tell all vessels to be clear of that area or at least be at a safe distance pending the potential for what could be coming.

FYI, I’m looking for ways in which I could be “off” in my accuracy, because of the difficulties of seeing this.  But, I’m not seeing information related to me being off in accuracy.

Prediction for 2015: World Disaster Event 2 of 3

March, 2014

I’m now seeing more of the 2015 “Event 2 of 3″ that I’ve been seeing for several years now and commented about before here in this blog.  The area I’m seeing it occurring  is the Atlantic Ocean at the northeast section of South America.  I see it being larger than anything that has been experienced in that particular area.

I don’t see it being a Level 5 Hurricane.  I see it being worse for some reason but worse because it spreads throughout the Atlantic Ocean – slowly – but spreads nonetheless.  It could be triggered by another earthquake, but it is not an earthquake by itself.

I have seen there being two months of warning signs, but I don’t think the warning signs will be readily understood.  I think the warning signs might be upheavals of some type but this isn’t clear, yet.  The upheavals could be social, economic, or physical.  And this whole happening event begins in June of 2015 with the 2 months of “warning” then culminating in August of 2015.  We actually may not know of some of it until December, 2015.  The full impact will not be felt immediately, but alarms of the potential impact will become public.

The results of this event will eventually affect a vast area of the Atlantic, including the East Coast of the US in major ways. This event will devastate the people of the islands in the area.

It will be slightly more impactful than the Japanese Tsunami/Nuclear disaster.  It could come from inland in the Northeast corner of South America – in the Guyana, Surname, Venezuela areas or the central most point of this event could be in the Northern most area of Brazil.  But, it could also come from off the coast of these countries and be a combination of inland and offshore events which would cause greater devastation.

Naturally, the area of effect would include all the islands in the Caribbean and Florida.  The impact area will spread up along the Eastern Coast of the US.  The impact will eventually also affect the western coast of Africa and in time, Portugal, Spain, the United Kingdom, and areas around the Atlantic Ocean.

This brings just as many questions as it does information.  I’ve looked at Volcanic activity, hurricanes, earthquakes, tsunamis, nuclear explosion and I’m not seeing any one of these being the cause.  That’s why I believe it will be a combination as well as more, just like Japan’s disaster was.

Our prayers would go to the people affected by this – citizens of the area.  The event itself is not stoppable.  This is the area where Atlantis existed.

June 26, 2014

Again, I see the event begin not as a cataclysmic event but rather as a gradual increase of devastating circumstances – growing and spreading over time via the Atlantic Ocean.  I believe natural phenomenon are going to help this happen, but there will be some man-made aspect to it, also.

It could take many months to experience the full impact upon the areas.  But, people will be impacted severely.  I also see Europe being affected by the time the Autumn of 2015 moves into Winter.

Q & A’s: US Dollar and California Water

Do you see independence from the US dollar as important over this period, through precious metals or other DIY methods? For instance, there was hyperinflation or pronounced inflation in the 1930′s.

That won’t be a strong concern.  For investment purposes, precious metals will be a good investment, but to rely on for currency and tender, no, I see it not being necessary.  I’m seeing a resurgence in bartering though, in twenty years.  Some of that is happening now, but I see it surge.  I don’t see it taking a majority hold, but rather it becoming popular.  Remember, this is 20 years from now and not a lot of change happens on the whole in only 20 years in the currency arena.

Even as I write this and see it being mostly true, I’m reminded that in other ways 20 years can see major change — 1985 -2005 saw some of the biggest changes this planet will see, with the explosion of computers and the internet.

I’m concerned about the comments you made about the drought in California. Do you see it continuing in severity over the next 5 years or somehow rectifying itself within that period of time? Part of the problem is our wasteful use of water. Do you see the Colorado River going back to its full levels or continuing to fall?

I see the drought continuing at the severity level at which it is at.  In the next 5 years, I only see 2017 as being a year of some rain – or rather the end of 2016 – beginning of 2017.  I also see 2017 being a year of even more wildfires than the two previous.  Not a good prediction, but I see California not backing down from dealing with this.  I see the people who fight wildfires being ready and facing them head-on.

I see the Colorado River very slowly continuing to fall in the next two years, but cycling back up after that.  Through this decade, it will be down and up and down and up.  I don’t see a time in this generation that it will return to where it was in the decades of the 20th century.  I do see greater and better steps being taken to have wise use of water and a lot less wastefulness.

***

We are in the times and half times, and this is a time of tribulation, as we see from this past winter and the current extreme weather patterns.  We can call it what we want to – man-made or nature-made, but it is a difficult and hard time like a woman going through labor.

I believe in the Spirit that lives inside the hearts, minds and souls of the people of this nation.  Within these hearts exists the capacity for going beyond our journey so far.  Within these minds exist the constructive ideas leading ways to cooperate and help one another.

Yes, this Spirit resides in the hearts, minds and souls of all people on this planet.  It is this Spirit that will help us as we face  challenges both on the planetary and national levels, as well as on the individual level.  It may sound corny to some, but I believe in this Spirit.

Right now, the latest predictions have been somewhat on the dire side, but there certainly are many, many positive, encouraging and inspirational factors in the future, also.  The questions have mostly been about what to watch out for, because this last winter, which is still in progress, has been one where people would fair better if they knew and could prepare for the difficult parts.

Predictions for Weather for the Remainder of 2014 – #18

As the winter of 2014 comes to an end, (April in the most northern parts, May in areas like Maine,) the energy and forces will come back into a balance, and in general, across the nation we will see more towards the average weather patterns of the last 5-6 years.  We will not see the weather patterns of 3, 4, or 5 decades ago, anymore – not in our lifetime.

As the winter slowly ends, there will be fewer extreme events for the nation as a whole for the rest of 2014. This is the general prediction for all areas.  We will be back in what can be termed as “average” weather, or rather the new term – “the new normal” for each area. This includes all the mixes of weather that have been in each area over the last 5-6 years.

I know this is not a cheerful prediction.   The positive side of this is that we can, if we’re willing, adapt and live productively through these challenging times.  Some of us have memories how things were different, and so we can compare the two eras.  But, those of us who are younger know this time only, and so come into this time willing to look for and create new ways to live productively.   In the decades ahead, we also will see many new ways of facing life’s challenges.  There will be opportunities in every arena of life – for creativity, cooperation, acceptance, tolerance, imagination, support, innovation, respect, leadership, unselfish sharing, and so much more – in every area of human life.   We will be witness to some of this, and if we’re willing, we also can bring some of this into existence for ourselves, and those with whom we have contact or come into contact.

It is always our choice on how we respond within our own lives.

DIYers and Grid Independence in the Coming Decades

There is a huge resurgence of Do-It-Yourselfers and independent living enthusiasts in the U.S., also called “getting off the grid” with the numbers growing all the time.  The Internet is one of the best tools for finding out how to do this.  This is perceived by some as extremism.  If one thinks the nation is going to turn upside down in the next few years, and that they’ll be vindicated, then, yes, I would say this is an extreme view.  However, what I see isn’t that there is an extremism movement, but that people are tuning into their intuition, recognizing that their lives are dependent on their own actions, promises from any ‘outside-of-themselves source’ i.e. the government, are rarely going to happen, if at all.   An important factor in this perception is not knowing the correct timeline for this self-reliance to be most needed.

The movement isn’t happening just because of fear.  Extremism is happening because of fear, but not the movement to DIY and becoming more independent.  This is based on an inner resource.  What I “see” is that times are coming when DIY skills and grid independence are going to be needed, and people are intuitively tuning into this need for more self-reliance – a need which will grow in the coming decades as populations grow around the entire Earth.

All this is coming forth into our awareness, because it’s all going to be needed.  But, don’t mistake this for living alone and relying only on one’s self.  This is not what is needed.  As human beings, we need one another.  We need to rely on each other, as well.  God created us to need one another, and efforts to be an island unto one’s self don’t succeed.   Neighborhoods and communities which foster cooperation and helping one another have been successful for millennium after millennium.

The timeline I see is this:

Food prices are set to rise significantly in the next three years specifically (2014-2016) at a greater rate of increase than average.  Starting in 2016, poor government actions and judgement directly impacting several contributing factors will set the foundation for 6 years of reduction of support to the majority of people, with support instead going to corporations and bigger business.

This will push even greater reliance on corporations and bigger businesses to supply the needs of most Americans.  In general, I see most people who run corporations seeking to maximize profits (which corporations are always designed to fulfill.)   However, in the U.S. with corporate level efforts to control more and more of consumer markets,  many of the alternatives to corporate products, which are available today, will no longer be allowed to be available.

Those that are seeking to be DIYers and move towards more independence will be in  better positions to ride through the years ahead, because, after the 6 years, which end in 2022, there will be no turning back the tide of what is coming.

The population is rising around the planet leading up to 8 billion people.  This will lead, going into the 2030’s and 2040’s to experience much of what was experienced in the 1930’s.  A trend in the 2020’s will lead into the decade of the 2030’s where there will be a tighter supply of food.  It will be harder to afford what is affordable in today’s world.  The hardships will fall on the vast masses of people.   The government will be unable to do anything to help, because this will have been set in motion many decades even before the results manifest.

We see today the results of decisions made decades ago.  In the same way, today’s decisions, whether left or right, good or bad, will manifest decades from now.

What can we do as people today?  Educate ourselves, believe in ourselves.  Rely on that which comes from within.  Let go of thinking that someone other than our self will make our lives better.  Let go of thinking that an elected official controls the quality of our own life.

Allow yourself to entertain the real idea that there may be more to life than just a physical existence.  Ask the spiritual world to come forth for the purpose of helping.  Entertain the idea of Christ as “a better friend” to us than we’ve imagined, and we’ve been to Him, and Him willing to give His very best to help His friends who welcome Him in.  Remember, Spiritual help that goes unused or untried, accomplishes nothing.  Spiritual help only becomes practical – only works in helping us with our lives on the Earth – if it is practiced and put to practical and pragmatic use in our lives – by applying our Spiritual principles to the different parts of our everyday lives for the goodwill and benefit of others and ourselves.
