Hi, brothers and sisters! This is Lisa. I wanted to share with you guys a couple of dreams I’ve had. [In] the first dream, I dreamed I was with a group of people, and we were getting into our car in the garage. When the garage door opened a spider fell out onto me and I freaked out and brushed it off of me. Then someone in the group started telling me that when a room in the house is left unoccupied that spiders start to infest it. And in the dream, I understood that what she said to me was related to Matthew 12, when it says,
43 “When an impure spirit comes out of a person, it goes through arid places seeking rest and does not find it. 44 Then it says, ‘I will return to the house I left.’ When it arrives, it finds the house unoccupied, swept clean, and put in order. 45 Then it goes and takes with it seven other spirits more wicked than itself, and they go in and live there. And the final condition of that person is worse than the first. That is how it will be with this wicked generation.”
My thoughts on this were, I think that when we are spiritually slothful and do not thank God and spend time in worship and pray and pursue our relationship with God, I think that this is what it means for the room to be unoccupied.
So that was the first part of the dream. Then the second part of the dream — in this part our Heartdwellers group was praying in tongues, and I could see clearly what was happening in the spirit while we prayed. When the words came out of our mouths they turned into blasts of light that were made out of Holy Spirit fire. We were directing our prayers toward the Refuge, and with each word, a blast of light would shoot from wherever we were in the world, towards New Mexico, because people were praying from all over the world. I was so fascinated and I watched curiously to see the different patterns of light that would come out of my mouth as I prayed. A single word would emit a giant blast of light toward New Mexico. And a stream of words was like a laser blast towards New Mexico. Actually, it looked really similar to a piano tutorial where you can see the notes coming in streams of light and then they explode in fire when they meet the keys — like it is on the picture that I’m showing in the video.
Then my words changed, and I started praying for the border of the USA and Mexico. My tongues caused a big fire to erupt there. Then my words changed again, and it was like a bomb of Holy Spirit fire fell on the border and it was consumed in Holy Spirit fire.
That was all. In the Bible Promise Book, I got Enemies and I feel that the Refuge is under attack, and it IS under attack right now. They’re going through a lot of things, and I feel that spiritual warfare and us praying in tongues for them, as well as for the border of the USA and Mexico, is greatly needed at this time.
So some of you may already have the gift of tongues and I would encourage you to spend some time praying for the Refuge of Jesus’ Sacred Heart in Taos, New Mexico, where Mother Clare and Father Ezekiel live and all the people on the mountain. Spend time praying for them today. Some of you may not have the gift of tongues yet but are wanting to receive it. Some of you may not have heard my testimony so I’ll briefly share it with you guys, to help encourage you guys to receive the gift.
So for me, it started with brokenness. I was at a very broken place in my life. And I spent a lot of time just listening to the audio Bible. That felt like I was getting washed in the spirit. That’s when I first started to really draw near to the Lord, and it felt like He was just wrapping me in His completely loving embrace. And that’s where it started for me. Then as I got more on fire for the Lord I was watching videos on YouTube and coming across videos of people speaking in tongues, and that was just so fascinating to me because I had never heard of anyone speaking in tongues before, even though it’s in the Bible.
One person said that “Speaking in tongues is speaking gibberish with the faith that it is not gibberish, it is the Holy Spirit speaking through you.” And that really clicked with me. I understand now that speaking in tongues is very childlike. It’s not hard to speak in tongues. I don’t have to think about what I’m saying, I just say whatever comes out of my mouth. The hard part is getting over the weird feeling you feel, speaking gibberish to yourself. There’s kind of an embarrassment feeling there. And kids, you know, they don’t have a hard time doing it. They’ll just ramble on and say whatever comes out of their mouths, and they don’t have a hard time with it. So God’s asking us to be more childlike.
Also I would say, with me it started with repentance. The Lord really cleaned out my heart and showed me things in my heart that I really needed to repent from. So if you’ve repented and you’re in a good place with the Lord, then just simply ask for the gift of tongues and keep asking until you receive it. For me, I started asking the Lord for the gift of tongues, and it was about two weeks later that the Lord just really surprised me and showed up and gave me the gift of tongues.
So with me, I just took a step of faith, and I was like, “I’m just going to say whatever that comes out of my mouth that is not English.” Because English is my native language. So I was just like, “I’m just going to say whatever comes out of my mouth.” And this word came out of my mouth. It was probably something like, “Ra-re-a” The word that I said really rolled the “R’s” and that was just shocking to me because I have never in my life been able to roll my “R’s”. And so I was like, “Oh my gosh I can’t believe I just rolled my R’s.” Like I’ve never been able to do that, so I knew that I had said something in tongues.
And people overthink things when it comes to tongues. They think that they’re expected to get a whole language or they compare their tongues to somebody else’s tongues, and they’re like, “Well my tongues don’t sound like that person’s tongues so I must not be doing it right.” Or, “I’m only getting one word. Like I can only say one thing, so I must not be doing it right.” And it’s not like that. It’s more like, we’re all different pieces of God’s body, and He’s using each one of us differently. And when we pray in tongues in groups with our Heartdwellers team, none of our tongues sound the same. Everyone’s praying things different. Some people are backing us up with prayers in their native language; really from the heart praying. And some people are praying the Rosary and Divine Mercy Chaplet on top of that. And it all works together. And it’s very powerful. So He uses each one of us differently, so don’t worry if you only get one word.
I just started repeating that word, over and over to myself, “Ra-re-a, Ra-re-a, Ra-re-a…” Like that. And I didn’t say anything different for 3 days in a row. That was all I was saying. But I just kept saying it. And then one evening when I was completely by myself, there was nobody else but me, I was just trying to say that word and all of a sudden I got baptized in the Holy Spirit. The Lord just came on me SO hard and heavy and I just got on fire from the top of my head all the way down to my feet. It felt like I was on fire. The tongues just came pouring out of my mouth faster than my mouth could even say the words. It was like, Holy Spirit just poured out of me.
So He really likes us to take that step of faith. Take a leap of faith, and then He meets us when we’re like mid-air falling. He’s like, “I’ll catch you! Just take a step.” So if any of you guys are wanting to receive the gift of tongues I would encourage you to spend time with the Lord, ask Him to clean out your heart and repent for anything, and then start asking for the gift of tongues, and then have faith and just step out and start saying anything gibberish that’s not in your native language, and say, “Holy Spirit, please pray through me…” and then start speaking anything that’s not in your native language.
So I hope this has helped your guys. I love you all. God bless you!
