SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND BY MARSHA BURNS:
The doors are opening to unusual opportunities for those who have been stuck. It is time to begin to move forward. It will not be like the bursting of a dam, but more like a trickle. And you must take the first step.
Jeremiah 29:11 For surely I know the plans I have for you, says the LORD, plans for your welfare and not for harm, to give you a future with expectation.
MANY ARE CALLED, FEW ARE CHOSEN
February 9th, 2022 8: 35 AM
There was an important and mysterious conference event I was invited to. Many people were also invited to come and in the dream I showed up and was waiting with them in a large audience hall.
There were workers seated at tables handing out numbers to people who showed up. When a person got their number, they were allowed to go in to the main event.
I asked someone (one of the many) sitting in the audience waiting “how are people selected to receive a number?” and he didn’t know.
Through the doors at the front of the room is where people who got their number would go to take part in the main conference event. Suddenly someone said “it’s starting”.
A few people who had not gotten their number yet became very concerned, but most of the people were just distracted, having a good time talking with one another and laughing. End of dream.
*PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING SCRIPTURE AND WORD STUDY, IT IS PART OF THE PROPHECY*
The Greek word for ‘chosen’ in Matthew 20 & 22 and ‘elect’ in Matthew 24 are the same – eklektos, so as many are called and few are chosen, the gathering of the elect in Matthew 24 is the gathering of the FEW (the 144,000 of Revelation 7 & 14), rather than the many (the great multitude of Revelation 7).
eklektos: select, by impl. favorite
Original Word: ἐκλεκτός, ή, όν
Part of Speech: Adjective
Phonetic Spelling: (ek-lek-tos’)
Definition: select, by implication favorite
Usage: chosen out, elect, choice, select, sometimes as subst: of those chosen out by God for the rendering of special service to Him (of the Hebrew race, particular Hebrews, the Messiah, and the Christians).
Cognate: 1588 eklektós (an adjective, derived from 1586 /eklégomai, “to select, choose,” also used as a substantive/noun) – properly, selected (chosen from, out of), especially as a deeply personal choice – literally “chosen, out of a personal preference (intention).” See 1586 (eklegomai).
1 Thessalonians 5:1-6
Revelation 3:10-11 (Church of Philadelphia)
10 Because thou hast kept the word of My patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth. 11 Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown.
February 18, 2022. Do not second guess what I have told you. This will create doubt in your mind. Just because it shows no evidence of happening does not mean that it will not happen. The timing is not yet. Sometimes what I say happens immediately and at other times it takes months or even years. What I said has already taken years and there is more time to come. I know you have wondered is this the time? Not yet.
John 10:3-4 “The gatekeeper opens the gate for him and the sheep recognize his voice and come to him. He calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. After he has gathered his own flock, he walks ahead of them and they follow him because they know his voice.” Bev Robinson
February 18, 2022. Who have you helped today? Who is on your mind, you or someone other than you? I want your mind on others. Pick up the phone, write a text, send an email, make a visit, cook a meal, write a note, buy a gift, share the gospel. My Son laid His life down for all mankind. I want you doing the same. Who is on your mind, you or someone who needs you? Activate love in action!
Acts 9:36 “There was a believer in Joppa named Tabitha (which in Greek is Dorcas). She was always doing kind things for others and helping the poor.” Robin Robinson Bohlin
