Journal Entry by Mother Mary Elisha
I began this morning, feeling so fatigued, exhausted, and tired physically. The room I stay in is very dark, even when it’s light outside, and I usually go out to Blessed Mother’s tree to pray. However, I wasn’t feeling physically up to it this morning. So, I stayed in my room, sitting on my bed, worshiping the LORD. Then he played a beautiful instrumental called, “Nature’s Afternoon.” I then looked up and saw the beautiful Sun shining through the yellow and orange leaves and I knew the LORD was beckoning me to go outside. So, I asked him for the strength and got my stuff together to pray outside instead. I was so grateful he brought me outside with the song he played. It was beautiful and I needed to enjoy the weather before it gets too cold for me to go out.
When I came to Blessed Mother’s prayer tree, I was startled, because a huge branch had fallen, and it was dragging one of the big branches down. It looked so bad as I thought, why Mother’s tree, LORD? and was glad that I wasn’t out here went it happened. The wind, although seeming so subtle, is very strong, and has taken down many branches at the house. As I began thinking, could this be prophetic sign concerning the church…? I was so disturbed by how her tree looked.
Then in prayer, I began journaling:
LORD, I am struggling again as you gave me a reading about your coming back—which is exciting, but I don’t feel as excited as I should because, again, I am trying to piece all the pieces together concerning the City of God—and your promises—and wondering if I will be taken or stay behind—so much confusion. Then I thought to seek you, to tell me—but remembered what you said—to be in the moment and to focus on what you set before me each day and not things in the future. Because I figured if you told me again to confirm that I was staying behind I would be so focused on the preparation of staying behind rather than the moment you have given me today. So, I will just leave it for now and trust what you told me and abandon the excessive desire to know everything [sigh].
Help me, LORD!
“My beloved, I am your help, strong tower and refuge. Many of my brides, especially the Heartdwellers, have assignments against you all, of hopelessness, discouragement, and discontentment. It was wonderful counsel you gave, My beloved bride.”
And here is talking about a soul that I had just seen for confession.
“The devils are trying to undermine your relationships with Me, by these feeling of damper, depression and discontentment. Don’t allow them to steal your joy or your peace anymore. I have so much in store for my beloved brides, whether I take you to myself during the wedding banquet or whether I have called you to stay behind. Trust me and surrender all, especially the details to Me, Beloved.
“Today is a wonderful day that I have created just for you so be glad and rejoice in it. See the wonders all around you of the birds singing, dogs barking, the beautiful change of color in the leaves? The sun glistening with expectation and joy.”
At that time, I looked up and closed my eyes as the warmth of the sun, bathed my face and I just smiled—so full of serenity and joy as I allowed the sun to wrap me with a blanket of satisfaction.
“Yes, those rays that emanate out of that star are full of joy and praise to my glory. All creation praises me, truly.”
Wow! is that why when we see the sun, we always describe it as a “smiling sun,” or it seems to always bring joy when you see the sun come out?
Jesus responded, “Exactly, My beloved, that is very intentional. The sun, out of all creation, shows my glory the most. It is light, it brings warmth, it guides the direction of the day and of the time. When risen up to its highest state in the day is seen by everyone and touches everyone and everything. It causes smiles on everyone’s face who gleans and rejoices at a new day. The brightness of it can also cause blindness when you stare straight into it. Just is the same of My Purity and Holiness, for even Moses only saw my back when my glory passed before him.”
Exodus 33: 18-23 Then Moses said, “Now show me your glory.” And the LORD said, “I will cause all my goodness to pass in front of you, and I will proclaim my name, the LORD, in your presence. I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion. But,” he said, “you cannot see my face, for no one may see me and live.”
Then the LORD said, “There is a place near me where you may stand on a rock. When my glory passes by; I will put you in a cleft in the rock and cover you with my hand until I have passed by. Then I will remove my hand and you will see my back; but my face must not be seen.”
“It was too great to see with the human eye. When no other natural element intervenes in its work it can become scorching hot and burn the things it touches. Just like Me, when YOU don’t intervene in my plan for you [he said that smiling], I too, then touch you and burn you with an inflaming love—not to destroy you, but to consume you wholly so you become one with me—shining bright and burning like the sun—and the Son, [he said that smiling] for all to see.”
Wow, LORD, I definitely didn’t have this on my mind.
And Jesus responded, “You like how I changed the subject? [he said smiling] just to bring a smile on your face and get you out of your head and on My book of love that surrounds you each day through My creation?”
I truly was smiling because Jesus is so funny. When I saw Mother’s tree, it looked a mess. And as I thought to myself, why Mother’s tree? I tried to lift the branch, but it was too heavy. I began to think, LORD is this a prophetic sign. Because I had just read the passage in John 15 of abiding in the vine and how the branches that don’t remain in the vine our thrown away. So, these thoughts came to my mind that maybe this was about the Church—and this whole message began to form, or so I thought. But when Jesus started speaking it had nothing to do with what was on my mind.
Jesus continued, “It loves it when you call out, ‘Brother Sun’ and invite it into your time of worship and praise.”
And as and aside, here, I thought, wow, amazing! The term brother sun is from St. Francis. He called all creation brothers and sisters—sister spider, brother donkey, sister moon, sister lark—and so forth. He truly understood that all creation was from the Father. Just as we are created from the Father, so we are to treat God’s creation with great humility and sibling love. So, he references to the sun, Brother Sun and to the moon Sister Moon. Since finding that out, I now always call the sun, Brother Sun. And especially on the days that it was cold and snowing on the mountain, I just wanted to go out to pray and worship, I would say it in my heart and many times out-loud, welcoming Brother Sun to my LORD’s Supper. And, sure enough, it would be a cloudy day with no hope for the sun—and at that moment the clouds would depart, and the sun would just peek out and shine on me. I would rejoice with laughter thinking, oh my gosh, he heard me! And then would proceed to thank Moses for bringing him out. I heard once in a man’s testimony to Heaven that Moses was given authority over the elements and creation of the earth according to God the Father’s will. Everyone gets a job in Heaven and that is his job. So, I have continued that ever since.
Jesus, reading my thoughts said, “Like all the stars, they are divinely instructed each day to bring glory upon this earth. So, it’s the same with the Sun, it is instructed by the Father and the patriarch Moses who has been given authority over all elements of creation.”
(Then I thought of Blessed Mother and how she made the sun dance in Fatima, thinking I thought she was the one over all creation.)
Jesus, knowing my thoughts responded,
“Yes, she is Queen of Heaven and Queen of the Patriarchs. She instructed Moses to make the sun dance and it did. I can never deny her request and it brought great honor to her and great glory to Me for there is no one quite like Her on earth or in Heaven. Still, many don’t understand Her role, but that will all change very soon.
“So, smile, My beloved one—smile and let the radiance of the sun remind you of my penetrating love. All of creation is truly groaning for the revealing of the sons and daughters of God. And when you worship me and praise me in the midst of such darkness you cannot see, especially out in the pasture, it brings joy to all creation all around you.
“The trees praise with you, the bushes find their courage to hope again in my return. The Horses admire you as they see one of the sons of God praising their creator. Then they know their wait is not so far off. For you reveal my glory the most when you praise and in the midst of a cloudy day. The Sun peeks its head in amazement and in such joy that another child of God is revealing My Glory and for a moment is brings consolation to its groan.
“The waiting is not too far off I am coming and with creation you will praise me together.”
That was the end of Jesus’ message.
Wow, what an amazing message! I stayed in awe for a bit looking at my surroundings and the beautiful creation all around me as I contemplated all the words the LORD said. Then I pulled a Rhema immediately afterwards and it said, “Yes my creation is beautiful but NONE as beautiful compared to you!” Ha, I thought oh wow, LORD! And how sweet he is, it really increased my faith.
Romans 8:19-23, “For the earnest expectation of the creation eagerly waits for the revealing of the sons of God. For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it in hope; because the creation itself also will be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and labors with birth pangs together until now. Not only that, but we also who have the first fruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, eagerly waiting for the adoption, the redemption of our body.”
God Bless you guys until the next message.
