One of my goals is to share more testimonies and words of encouragement from other believers, because we are all part of the body of Christ and we all have something great to offer.
Today, I received a wonderful email from Chelle Wagner, and I think that what she has to share is really going to bless a lot of you…
As you can imagine so much is on my heart during this time. I wanted to share just a bit of my story as I have always known HE who was and is and is to come has groomed me to have a heart that He can trust with trouble. I came to know Jesus Christ as my savior in the early 1990s after the death of my 2 month old child. My life was a complete train wreck before her death. I was completely self-absorbed, and in that extreme mode of self-centeredness anything was justifiable. My child’s death broke through that mindset as nothing else could have. The day she died I walked into the parking lot of the hospital looked up into the vast beautiful blue Florida sky and proclaimed “I don’t know who You are! But, if You are willing to help me find out I am now ready to listen. For I know that if I don’t find out who You are I will never see that child again.” The great El Elyon the highest God, the mighty God looked down upon me in His mercy. I looked down at my feet after saying that prayer and there was a baby rose ribbon laying at my feet. I picked it up and put it in my pocket looked into the heavens and said, “I will take that as a yes.” It is still in my jewelry box to this day. That began a journey of deliverance like peels of an onion. The tearing down of strongholds in my mind, and a journey of love that everyday is so much more than I ever expected to find.
By the worlds standards then and now I am a nobody. But, to the Creator of the Universe I was of unmeasured worth then and now. This gives me hope everyday because if He will do that for me He will meet any willing heart. Since then I have experienced many, hardships more death of loved ones, healing from childhood traumas, overcoming addictions, release from destructive relationships, praying my older child through her running from the Lord, betrayals from friends and family because of my faith, job loss, bankruptcy, severe sickness, home loss and having to live in a campground and in each He has whispered, “Trust me I put within you a heart that could be trusted with trouble.” No matter what situation I have found myself the one sure thing was that I have never been alone. This is not a religious relationship. I love living according to His instructions and it is my delight to do so. It is my experience that He will always respond to a sincerely seeking heart. I am so grateful He was not only to be found inside the walls of religious institutions even though I am forever grateful for the truths I have learned inside those walls by sincere women and men of faith.
This time upon the earth does not surprise me, He has whispered to my heart what was one day coming since I was saved. What led to my salvation was Ezekiel 34:11-16 For thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I, even I, will both search my sheep, and seek them out.
As a shepherd seeketh out his flock in the day that he is among his sheep that are scattered; so will I seek out my sheep, and will deliver them out of all places where they have been scattered in the cloudy and dark day.
And I will bring them out from the people, and gather them from the countries, and will bring them to their own land, and feed them upon the mountains of Israel by the rivers, and in all the inhabited places of the country.
I will feed them in a good pasture, and upon the high mountains of Israel shall their fold be: there shall they lie in a good fold, and in a fat pasture shall they feed upon the mountains of Israel.
I will feed my flock, and I will cause them to lie down, saith the Lord GOD.
I will seek that which was lost, and bring again that which was driven away, and will bind up that which was broken, and will strengthen that which was sick: but I will destroy the fat and the strong; I will feed them with judgment.
What my heart understood was that He knew I was broken and He was quite willing to help me. I have meditated on this scripture for all of these years and the Shepherd has shown me many things about the time coming upon the earth when He will regather His people. This is going to be the most amazing time the planet has ever seen but, it will be full of difficult roads that lead us home.
The very first vision I had was three days after salvation which was a six month journey after picking up the baby ribbon and asking for help. The vision I had was: I was departing a plane and as a reached the ground a rolled up red carpet was under my feet. Each time I took a step the carpet rolled out further for me to walk upon. Each side of the carpet was lined up with so many people I couldn’t see them all the crowd was so thick. They were angry at God, shaking their fists at Him. That were screaming and crying it was all a lie. Yahuah told me, “Tell them I didn’t lie, they believed the lies of man, their preachers lied.”
I lived in Orlando FL, for many years and in 2004 a summer of violent thunder storms hit. I could here his voice in the thunder it boomed through my very being and He showed me the city full of fires. I saw the scenes of violent civil unrest and destruction of the city. It is coming.
I live in North Carolina now, and in 2015 I had a vision of cars lined up waiting for food. The line of cars was full of junker cars and full of very expensive cars and I heard the words, “the great equalizer.” On 7/13/17 I saw in the spirit a vision of demonic forces being released from erupting volcanos. I had the word and vision and wrote it down sharing it with my husband and our friend and then later that day opened my computer to a Paul Begley report with a picture of a demon looking cloud rising from Mt. Vesuvius. On 12/12/19 I received the word about the consequences of unrighteous judgments in our land according to Psalm 82 the day the Congress was voting on the impeachment of our President which I shared with you and you shared with your readers.
On 3/11/20 I was in great fear for my family who at that point were starting to believe that their might be a problem going on but from what I can gather most still believe that we will return to a semblance of “normal”. The Lord stopped me in my tracks and told me to write down the following:
“Lord I relinquish my family. I pray that You give each and everyone of them Your protection. I plead the blood of Yahusha over their lives. But, right now I trust You. I TRUST YOU TO DO YOUR BEST FOR THEM IN Life and Death. Shower them with mercy and kindness.
Today after prayer and a knowing in my heart that we are about to experience a major loss of life in this country and on the planet I was led to write the following:
Prayers for the sick
Heavenly Father we ask you to spare life for our loved ones and friends. We desire their continued companionship. We love them. Yahuah we acknowledge Your Sovereignty over all things including life. You decide on an individual basis how long a soul lives and breathes upon the earth but, that does not make our pleadings to no effect. We lift up to You our pleadings for our loved ones. You are a compassionate and loving Father. You are smarter than we are. You know every detail for all eternity for every soul; and you are painting your canvas of time. In the acknowledgement of Your Great Power and Wisdom we ask for hearts that are steadfast before You. Hearts that trust You with those we love. Hearts that will trust you with what our lives will be like with their presence or absence as You see fit. We trust You to sustain us whether we are in joy or in pain. We ask you to meet us in our sufferings and bestow Your grace and compassion upon us. WE plead for you to forgive us if we doubt and help us to find courage to walk through the days trusting You entirely. Help us to never allow the seed of bitterness to be planted in our hearts denying us fellowship with You for eternity because we are unable to grasp how close eternity is for each of us. IF the seed of bitterness has been planted we ask you to uproot it now.
David Wilkerson – “Lord, help me cut loose from the bondage of things. Let me not squander my gift of life on my own selfish pleasures and goals. Help me to bring all my appetites under Your control. Make me remember I am a pilgrim not a settler. I am not Your fan, but Your follower. Most of all deliver me from the bondage of the fear of death. Make me finally understand that to die in Christ is gain. Help me to look forward, with precious anticipation, to my moment of ultimate healing.”
…through death, he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is the devil, and deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage. Hebrews 2:14-15
