About hsvisions

Born again at about 16 yrs. of age (1957) Baptized in the Holy Spirit (1977) I was given my first vision while attending a men's christian weekend (Cursillo) in 1978, on my birthday. Since that time I began recording these Holy Spirit visits (visions) and began illustrating them many years ago. The messages from the Holy Spirit are primarily forthtelling-edification- for the body of Christ here on earth. Many of these message reveal what God is like, many are given to let the Church know Him, and that He is always with us. Kathy was baptized in the Holy Spirit in 1977, three days before I received the baptism. Kathy is our Editor and proof reader.

REPAIRED?

REPAIRED?

Luke 5:36-39 “He told them this parable: ‘No one tears a patch from a new garment and sews it on an old one. If he does, he will have torn the new garment, and the patch from the new will not match the old. And no one pours new wine into old wineskins. If he does, the new wine will burst the skins, the wine will run out and the wineskins will be ruined. No, new wine must be poured into the new wineskins. And no one after drinking old wine wants the new, for he says, “The old is better.” ‘ ” Matthew Henry’s Commentary 1961 Zondervan p. 1430 “The disciples will be tempted to think their old way of living better, till they are by degrees trained up to this way whereunto they are called.”

The Scene: A new patch sewn onto the old garment. The patch represents ourselves as sinners, when we cannot rid ourselves of the old nature. When we try to fix/repair ourselves, we cannot succeed, for our Lord Jesus Christ is the only one who can truly make all things new, representing a new life through our faith in Him and our spiritual power through His name.

2 Corinthians 5:17-18 “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come! All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation.”

Only when we are born-again according to God’s Word can we truly serve God, pleasing Him.

2 Corinthians 5:20 “We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God.”

FENCES: SELF-IMPOSED

FENCES:SELF-IMPOSED

Proverbs 16:32 “Better a patient man than a warrior, a man who controls his temper than one who takes a city.”

The Scene: People erect many fences around themselves by the way they live. People whose lives are full of anger lack patience and the fruit of the Holy Spirit, exhibiting just the opposite behavior from that described in Proverbs 16:32.

Galatians 5:22-23 “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.”

Impatient people build fences around themselves that keep them from acting Christ-like and which then hurts their ability to minister to God, to themselves and to others. As the world becomes more and more self-centered we must become more Christ centered, focused on Him.

1 Corinthians 4:20-21 ” For the kingdom of God is not a matter of talk but of power. What do you prefer? Shall I come to you with a whip, or in love and with a gentle spirit?”

LIGHT IN A DARK WORLD

LIGHT IN A DARK WORLD

Matthew 5:16 In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.”

The Scene: A night scene of many hills– among the hills could be seen fires burning, sending out light into a darkened world.

1 Thessalonians 5:5 “You are all sons of the light and sons of the day. We do not belong to the night or to the darkness.”

Father God created the light–we who born-again through faith in Jesus Christ our Lord are His children and are filled with His Holy Spirit light.

Ephesians 5:8 “For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light (for the fruit of the light consists in all goodness, righteousness and truth).

Matthew 5:14 “You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden.”

COVERED BY THE BLOOD

COVERED BY THE BLOOD

1 John 5:5-8 “Who is it that overcomes the world? Only he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God. This is the one who came by water and blood–Jesus Christ. He did not come by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit who testifies, because the Spirit is the truth. For there are three that testify: the Spirit, the water and the blood; and the three are in agreement.”

The Scene : The Church congregation singing in high praise to God almighty–reading the words on a large screen in the sanctuary–singing and visualizing the screen as a waterfall (living water). As the congregation reached high praise, the water turned blood red (Jesus’ blood) running down the screens, flowing and pooling. Jesus’ blood immersed the congregation in His blood and water–followed by the fires of the Holy Spirit extending across the top, signifying His presence and approval. Jesus Christ is Lord!

Overcomers believe Jesus Christ is the one and only Son of God.

1 John 5:1-4 ” Everyone who believes that Jesus is the Christ is born of God, and everyone who loves the Father loves His child as well. This is how we know that we love the children of God: by loving God and carrying out his commands. This is love for God: to obey his commands. And his commands are not burdensome, for everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith.”

HE KNOWS US

HE KNOWS US

Psalm 139:2 ” You know when I sit and when I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar.”

The Scene: Two silhouettes–one sitting and one standing; both with solid blocks (a rock foundation ) under them representing God’s children that have a strong foundation under them.

We are being watched over every minute by our Father in heaven. He knows our every need and care.

Psalm 139:4 ” Before a word is on my tongue you know it completely, O Lord.”

There has never been a time when God wasn’t with us and for us.

Psalm 139:14 ” I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.”

Psalm 139:16 “Your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.”

CHILDREN OF LIGHT

CHILDREN OF LIGHT

Ephesians 5:8-10 “For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light [for the fruit of the light consists in all goodness, righteousness and truth] and find out what pleases the Lord.”

The Scene: A clay jar* with bright light shining out of the pot. The surrounding area is dark like the nighttime. * Representing born-again, Spirit filled, Christians–true believers in Jesus Christ Savior, only-begotten Son of God.

2 Corinthians 4:6-7 ” For God, who said, ‘Let light shine out of darkness,’ made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ. But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us.”

Jesus is the light of the world and shines out through His people.

SAFETY NET

SAFETY NET

Jude 1:24-25 “To him who is able to keep you from falling and to present you before his glorious presence without fault and with great joy– to the only God our Savior be glory, majesty, power and authority, through Jesus Christ our Lord, before all ages, now and forevermore! Amen.”

The Scene: A large, strong nylon net–strong enough to hold yet flexible enough to not hurt someone from a tumble into the net.

We can be sure, as God’s children, that though we may stumble in our Christian walk, Father God will be right there for us, when we need Him most! He will see us through our temptations and our moral faults upon our repentance, when needed.

Psalm 55:22 “Cast your cares on the Lord and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous fall.”

Likewise, we are called, as followers of Jesus, to be like our Father’s net with our brothers and sisters in Christ: when they act in an unloving, unkind way toward us and others, we are able to catch them when they are hurting, by showing them Godly love, caring, forgiveness and prayer.

Psalm 66:8-9 “Praise our God, O peoples, let the sound of his praise be heard; he has preserved our lives and kept our feet from slipping.”
