“The body of Christ arose as ONE mighty army”

A prophetic glimpse into the coming time!

by John Dayalan Edwards

(My cousin, born in the US but now living in Chennai)

This past Sunday I was preaching on inner healing and deliverance in our Tamil service. The anointing of the Lord was present to heal inner wounds and hurts and the love and compassion of the Lord was abundant.

During that time, in a moment I felt as if I was one with the Lord as I prayed — it seemed like Jesus Himself was praying —from John 13:34,35 and John 17:21.

Hale’s Accusation (Alternate Ending of The Crucible)

Standard

1 Samuel 15 (KJV) – For bitterness is as the sin of witchcraft, And presumption is as iniquity and idolatry.

[Our Christian high school just put on a “fearless” production of Arthur Miller’s The Crucible, which continued to haunt me after leaving the theater. I identified deeply with many of the characters, whose seemingly minor flaws led to tragic results. I am writing this in hopes it will help me identify (and repent of) the deeper sin they shared — but could not name — which ultimately destroyed them all.]

Dream: Impostor

Standard

Our family is staying at a tropical casino.
The kids are getting bored, so we start wandering towards the outside.

The casino is having their grand evening religious ritual.
The main hallway and staircase are lined with formally-dressed staff holding candles.
I am never sure if they are genuinely devout, or just putting on a pageant for the tourists.

Dream: Guidebook

Standard

It is our group’s last day in this beach town
We have all packed our bags
And checked out

We are storing our things
In some sort of common room
While we each wait to depart

I realize I have no more obligations
This is the perfect time
To do
Some serious drinking!

Dream: Discrepancy

Standard

I am back at my old consulting firm
As a new recruit
Along with a whole class
Going through a training exercise

We are all given slips of paper
With a particular business Case study
We have to solve

The trainer first calls
On a couple of smart college guys
Who give the textbook answer

He then turns to me
With a knowing smile
Showing me he remembers me
And suggests I merge my Case with theirs

I haven’t been paying attention
So I start talking
While rearranging my slips
I see and say the name
Of the client: Salomon Brady
And haltingly explain that
they’re missing $5.1 million dollars
Joking that is probably because
They (too) didn’t keep track of the papers

There’s two main possibilities
Deliberate fraud or sloppy bookkeeping
I explain to my two “colleagues”
Whom I pretend to meet
At the cafeteria there

I’m assuming they’ve already
Solved their Case
So I suggest ways that they each
Might help prove or eliminate
One of my hypotheses

They play along
In a rather condescending way
Which is only fair
Because I wasn’t very prepared
Since I wasn’t paying attention
Even though I mostly covered it up
By being smart and self-deprecating

Just like I use
Being clever and charming
To compensate for a lack
Of being emotionally available
In my closest relationships

Redeeming Aphrodite: Freeing Minerva (Part 12 of 12)

Standard


Continued from Part 11

Prologue

All of us turn South, seeking the Voice which interrupted our tableau, here in the Box of Hades:

  1. Eve, Queen of the Damned
  2. Minerva, her Champion
  3. Aphrodite and Artemis, my Advocates
  4. Myself, the Son of Adam

We gaze toward the far horizon, where Eve’s Multitude had wreaked their vengeance upon Adam.
I am sure it is not his Voice we just heard.
I cannot place it; though it did sound familiar.

Movement stirs at the very limits of our vision.
A pale blue light, in sharp contrast to the dim red glow of our surroundings.
I think I catch a glimpse of one like a Son of Man

Sons of Man

THE 7000: A Glimpse into the Future, by John Dayalan Edward

Standard

Follow-on to A Word for America, by John Dayalan Edward

The 7000 are the ones that will arise in the power of God in the coming seasons. They are everywhere. They are from every denomination but they do not identify themselves by one. Their identity is in Christ and He in them, the hope of glory. They are from all walks of life, young and old (many children will lead the way). They have one vision and one purpose, which is to see Christ glorified and His kingdom come. 

They are tired of religion; hypocrisy stinks before them. Their faith is simple and they are pressing past the old into the new. Love is what earmarks them. 

Each one of them is growing into full maturity in Christ and each one of them edifies the other. They have known their gifts and also have known their place in the body. 

There is a deep hunger that is growing in them. A hunger that will not be satisfied by any other, than the full manifestation of the power of God.  

It is a work of the Spirit, and He is orchestrating it around the world in preparing His end-time bride.  

He that has eyes let him see and He that has ears let him hear what the Spirit is doing and saying.

A collective reaching out from around the world, that will open the windows of heaven in an unprecedented way like never before. Then, O glory, she will arise in glory, in perfect coordination. A coordination so symphonic and so prefect, that it is (can only be) witnessed from above; for every one has yielded themselves to the Spirit and He has already united their hearts in Christ — and now the glorious manifestation of that is seen as LOVE, as the way in which signs and wonders and miracles abound like never before and the presence and power of God is witnessed like never before. 

Each part of the body doing its work as Christ Himself is the head, sending commands directly to each member of His body — and through His body without any block. 

Come out my people! Come out from among them (no offense… :);  ‘among’ does not relate to the world but to any denomination or group that is not Christ-centered and is not focused on the edification of everyone. As the times are changing in the spiritual realm, God is done with institutionalized church (not an immediate reality but one that will happen in the near future). 

Seperate yourselves unto Me. A call to intimacy. A call to denying self completely. A cry of desperation as God meets them halfway.  An endowment of great power as the veil between the natural and spiritual realm stands torn! Amen.

Having a glorious time in transit… :)!

Addendum 9/18/2021

In regards to my earlier email on the ‘7000’ I got responses from several of you , the Spirit bearing witness with you to what was said. There was a question that came up from the writings as to what I meant by the institutional church ? There are few things I feel I needed to say in that regard.
Firstly, whatever was written had a flow to it and the phrase “the days of the institutional church are over….” I believe is from the Lord.
Now, I would like to expound on that prayerfully.
Foremost, it is not the setting or the difference in accommodations large (buildings) or small (house churches) that is the main focus. Any one of those can be centered on individuals — their own identity — rather than (or more than) Christ; and any one of those may not be glorifying Christ, fulfilling God’s purpose for them.
Having said that, God’s intent these last days is for His entire body to rise to maturity. His power and glory will be there, and those are the seasons He is leading the church into. It is not about a select few functioning in their callings only (I believe in leadership.. :-); it is about everyone functioning fully in their callings. 

My understanding in that regard is, the current church (building setting) is not largely geared towards [that], and it cannot be achieved unless:

  • some radical and 180-degree changes are made
  • people who are currently leading being willing to take backstage (needs more explanation) and let others lead
  • provisions are made for everyone to come to a place of functioning in their calling is made.

So, the question in that regard is how many of the current institutional churches will embrace that change?  If they do and our prayer is that all of them do, it is a great thing.. :-). 
One final question to ask in that regard and a more important one is: is this the new wineskin, the new mindset that God wants us to have, and proceed with making every provision for everyone to become mature and become functional? Christ glorified and His body matured, our sole purpose behind our being and functioning.
May His bride arise to the full stature of Christ; in Love, Purity and Power! Amen
Grace to all of you!John

Dream: Gun Control

Standard


Owen Wilson and Ben Affleck are cops on a stakeout
This floor of the building
Is one giant room
Full of desks and bookshelves
Probably a college library

Ben is on administrative leave
Because he supposedly shot someone
For no good reason
Owen, his partner, is helping him prove his innocence
Ben’s fragmented memories
And other clues
Have led them here

This floor seems mostly deserted
I am the only other one there

Dream: Hospital Escape

Standard

“Ms. Clairborne, please remain seated. Do not leave your room. All hospital personnel have been alerted to your presence. Do not make this harder on yourself than necessary.”

Liz ignored the voice from speaker on the desk and finished getting dressed. She stepped over the male orderly who was sleeping soundly on the floor, a victim of the hypodermic he had intended to use on her.
