It is wise to write down your dreams because God still speaks to His people through dreams and visions. These are the recorded dreams, visitations and visions my Lord gave me just prior to my latest writing assignment. “A Reader’s Delight”. “My message and my preaching were not with wise and persuasive words, but with a demonstration of the Spirit’s power, so that your faith might not rest on human wisdom, but on God’s power.” 1 Corinthians 2:4-5 More than anything else I want to see a demonstration of the Spirit of God falling down like rain on the people of Mexico! May His Glory come down! We need His power to build His kingdom while on earth. It is not my intention to impress anyone. “When I came to you, I did not come with eloquence or human wisdom as I proclaimed to you the testimony about God. For I resolved to know nothing while I was with you except Jesus Christ and him crucified.” Like Paul, I know nothing. Barbara is also crucified and only Jesus is to be glorified in all I speak, write or do. AMEN
❤❤❤DREAM February 22, 2019: The Word became Flesh, in a vivid dream: A brilliantly ornate golden, uniquely jeweled container that was shaped like a canoe was suddenly in my room. A voice said “open it”. With great anticipation I walked over to the glorious container and began pulling away what appeared to be straw, stubble or hay, like excelsior. The treasure that was uncovered spoke to my heart. Glistening figurines of the finest, delicate porcelain were all there kneeling beside the luxuriously gilded container. Then in a flash, all of the nativity characters were standing beside the container, alive and joyfully smiling at me. It was Jesus and His beloved apostles all standing in my room, beaming and beckoning me to take their picture. I fumbled with a substantially complex yet beautiful object in my hands. It was somehow revealed to me that it was a camera. I said “I do not know how to make it work”. Then I woke up from my sleep, still feeling like I had the camera in my hand. REVELATION: Take a snapshot of the Bible, make it simple for the common man to draw near to Jesus! The complex box or camera in my hand, which I was to use, to take a snapshot, is my computer. Listen to what the Spirit is saying, and obey! The day before I had been listening to books about Jesus and I fell asleep to a scripture based movie on the “Book of John”. The Word of God appeared in my room and asked me to take a picture (freeze frame My Joy and Love over you)…these scriptures affirm my dream of The Word became Flesh.” —- Luke 12:34 “For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” 2 Corin 4:7 “But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us.” 1 Tim 6:9 “The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. John 1:14 “ I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you will be clean.” Ezekiel 36:25
❤❤❤ March 22, 2019 : WORSHIP THE LORD IN WRITTEN WORDS
I praise You God, for it is Your love that liberates me, it is Your power that gives me strength and makes me whole. Abba Father, pour Your love into me so that it overflows to others and glorifies You in the process. I sit still and know that You are the One and only God worthy of all praise. Thank You for the gift of faith, and for keeping Your promise by filling me with the Holy Spirit. Thank You for Your greatest act of love—sending Your Son to die for me. I praise You, Jesus, my Lord and Redeemer, that You have saved me and given me a foundation that is unshakable. “You enlarged my path under me, so my feet did not slip” (2 Samuel 22:37). ❤❤❤ It is my greatest privilege to exalt You above all and proclaim that You are King of kings and Lord of lords. No one is greater than You. I praise You for Your Holy Spirit, Who gives me understanding, Who teaches me the things of the deep, Who leads, Who comforts me, and Who never departs from me. I praise You for Your wisdom and revelation. I praise You for Your peace and joy. Thank You that You are in charge of my life and nothing is too hard for You. Thank You for enabling me to do what I could never do without You. Lord, help me to worship You in ways that are pleasing in Your sight. You are holy and worthy of all praise, and I exalt You above all else. In Jesus’ name I pray.
❤❤❤ March 26, 2019 session with Norma Johnson:A Video taped message from Norma is an ongoing blessing. Karyn Prycer the fire starter pierced the air with praise! God’s tongues of fire spoke through Norma, Laurie, and Billie. Our souls were pierced as we broke through barriers and built up HOPE as we stomped and pushed through just like the Shunammite did! (2 Kings 4) As the redeeming blaze of the Lord ignites Lakeside. ❤❤❤ DREAM Mach 27, 2019: I was in a car traveling fast towards a fire. I was leading a train of cars behind me, they were all following me towards the fire. Then suddenly the tires were melting into the asphalt and we were all consumed by the fire. The car represents my ministry. The long line of traffic following me into the all consuming fire of the Holy Spirit, are the people who are moved to accept Jesus by reading my book.
❤❤❤ March 31, 2019: WALKING IN THE FAVOR OF GOD: To examine your heart for anything that is buried works miracles. In my personal heart exam I remembered a debt from 30 years ago to my sister. I wrote a check with a request for her forgiveness for such a late payment. I JUST GOTTA RECORD THIS as a BLESSING from GOD! I got this TEXT today. “Barbie, I was so shocked to see your note and check which arrived today. I really had forgiven your lapse long ago — This shows me that you do practice your faith and godly spirit. You are loved beyond measure.” Lord I pray that You draw my sister close. In Jesus name AMEN. ❤❤❤❤❤❤ April 2, 2019: An intercessory missionary group from Bethel Church joined Karyn, Andy, the local CRY OUT GROUP: Charlotte, Carol, Priscilla, and Dan, Carol, Mike and Barb to pray for the nation of Mexico. Afterwards we went to Charlottes’ for a taco buffet. A couple from Redding prayed over the “A Readers Delight” book project. Barb received a special impartation of Gods anointing to be enabled by the Holy Spirit to expeditiously read the entire Bible and write what God highlights. This Bethel couple who are currently attending their second year of Bethels school of Prophecy, prophesied over Barb, that the book would touch many lives, in many languages.
❤❤❤ DREAM April 4, 2019: Today my Lord streamed His chosen lessons in Ecclesiastes, Song of Songs, Isaiah, and Jeremiah. IAM RENEWED not drained as I get to use my gift from God to expand His kingdom! On April 3, 2019 Barb received a major blessing and encouragement from God. On my way to a church committee meeting I stopped to test drive a few office chairs as the chair I’m using is not good for my back and it has no wheels. ANYWAY, within minutes I picked the one that fit with a price tag of 5,700 pesos. I never ask for a discount, but today i just said something like “how about giving me a discount for being a woman who made up her mind quickly ” He said it’s a floor model sold for 4,000 pesos. He could not take my debit card, so he saw me dig into my wallet and all I had was 3,250 pesos. He smiled and just said SOLD! They put my new swiveling chair in my car. The entire shopping experience lasted only 5 minutes. I am now sitting in a rolling, back supportive chair – thank you Jesus!❤❤❤ DREAM April 21, 2019: After a wonderful worship service on Easter Sunday with a wonderful message about the prodigal son, I relaxed by watching Sid Roth interviewing someone about the importance of dreams. I went to sleep on Easter Eve, and that night my dream had me being led to line up jugs of water in front of the painting of Lake Chapala. I was trying to take a picture of the painting as I lined up these jugs of water in front of it. “A Readers Delight” a snapshot of the Holy Bible – being used to pour out jugs of living water into the people of lake Chapala. Hallelujah
❤❤❤ PRAYER APRIL 22, 2019: AMEN Lord Jesus I pray that You will be glorified in the published book “A Readers Delight” I pray it is accurately translated into Spanish, and that You would expedite its distribution to the people of Mexico. I pray it will be used to magnify Who you are in the hearts of all who read it. I pray for the supernatural revival in Mexico as it has been prophesied. In Jesus name. AMEN ❤❤❤ AMEN
❤❤❤ DREAM April 23, 2019: Woke up thinking Judges, Judges, Judges. Read and re-edit Exodus and Leviticus. Include the feasts of the Lord are for all generations.
❤❤❤DREAM April 30, 2019 in my dream I was concerned about an email that warned me to stop talking about the Bible. Jesus appeared and said “He will explain”. The access that is now possible to ALL people, in God’s new covenant. This morning I re-edited the book of Exodus and Matthew to include: “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to Me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I will be with always, to the very end of age.”(28) Jesus promised that He would be with us until the end of the age! Today all believers have access to the Most Holy Place; we can now go to Our Father directly as a result of the obedience of Jesus to lay down His life for us. At the moment of His death, the Temple curtain was torn! It was made by God’s instruction to separate common people from the most holy place. ENORMOUS 200 yard curtain as described in Exodus chapter 26. The size is significant because God tore it from top to bottom the day that His Son, Jesus was crucified. Once Jesus said “it is finished”; in front of all the priests, the Temple curtain was torn as a sign of God’s new covenant. All people are now able to have a personal relationship with God. “At that moment the curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. The earth shook, the rocks split.” Matt 27:51❤❤❤DREAM MAY 1, 2019 Happy MAY DAY to ALL! ☀Woke up in the wee hours on May 1st in the midst of dream. I was walking down a sidewalk, the cement splits and a carpet of bright yellow flowers spring up where the sidewalk was. I hesitated to step on them, and a voice from behind me whispers; ‘go ahead, keep walking this way’.Heaven Came Down
❤❤❤VISION MAY 2, 2019 This morning Mike and I walked the malecon and witnessed that the bridge to Jesus is almost finished! We praised God as it is a sign that leads to the passionate people of Mexico becoming on fire for Jesus as His glory comes down! Today, immediately after finishing my final edit in Jude, the door bell rang. It was a surprise visit from our neighbor RosaEna. She brought the new mayor of San Nicolas de Ibarra over to invite us to a Mother’s Day fiesta in the plaza. Filled with the Holy Spirit, it was announced that the Bible had just been condensed from 650,000 words, to 50,0000 words so that the passionate people of Mexico could enjoy a personal relationship with our Lord Jesus Christ. Nacho Ibarra, the new Mayor agreed that the people of Mexico need to listen to the Word of Jesus directly, and not through the priest. Nacho immediately gave me his email as he offered to translate this book. In the magnificent universal language of God, we all said HALLELUJAH all GLORY to GOD! ❤❤❤ The glory of the Lord came down on the people at Lakeside and 5,000 were baptized in the lake. REVELATION
Sunday May 5, 2019 I received an email for intercessory prayer warriors. There is a wide spread spiritual attempt to attack those in prayer with distractions, mind mud, and disorientation. WARNING: Focus! Don’t give up! Bind the spirit of witchcraft and slumber. There is imminent breakthrough in the atmosphere. DECLARE: My mind is protected from being confused or foggy. All attempts to torment my mind are being stopped by the power of the name of Jesus. I stomp my feet and take a firm stand on the prophecies proclaimed over Mexico. We praise You Lord Jesus for the victory! We bless Your Holy Name and we thank You for the blood of Jesus that covers and protects us. Thank You Lord for breathing new life into Your Church at Lakeside and Guadalajara. Thank You for shaking up Your Body of Christ, Your Church. We ask for a fresh breath of Wisdom and discernment to be blown into our minds and hearts. Whoever asks for Wisdom, we know that our God responds by rushing in and giving it generously. We hold onto Your promises oh Lord ! We anticipate an outpouring of Your Glory on Mexico and all over the earth. The FIRE of GOD is spreading. The Holy Spirit is ablaze and it is healing the nations. Fresh fire is coming upon the intercessors in unprecedented ways. Our eyes are being opened that we may see what is taking place in the spiritual realm as we pray. Our clarity increases as we intercede for one another. Dreams and visions are increasing. The hearts of intercessory prayer warriors are being set on FIRE like never before. A fresh baptism of FIRE is upon us as we prepare the way of the Lord. Nothing can stop the Lord God Almighty! His arm is stretched out and He is coming to do what He needs to do and God will not be stopped. “For the Lord of hosts has decided and planned, and who can annul it?” Isaiah 14:27 AMP
❤❤❤DREAM MAY 7, 2019 We were leaving the old church building and being led to an enormous white structure with multiple buildings for teaching. “We are leaving an old building and moving into an ancient structure that is brand new.” The interior of the structure had stadium like seats. I looked behind the seats and saw a furnace on fire! Then on May 7, 2019 Tuesday I checked my email from Australia: “Yield to the places that He is calling you to be “set apart” from and follow His leading even if it doesn’t make sense, as it is preparation in the positioning for His fire to fall. His fire is falling upon living sacrifices. He’s coming with His fire to consume you like never before.” The Lord is calling the Body of Christ to a fresh place of surrender with our very lives being as altars unto Him, because I hear the Lord saying, “My fire is about to fall! My fire is about to fall!” The fire of God is about to fall on the consecrated places.” “Then Joshua said to the people, ‘Sanctify yourselves [for His purpose], for tomorrow the Lord will do wonders (miracles) among you.'” (Joshua 3:5 AMP)
“When Solomon had finished praying, fire came down from Heaven and consumed the burnt offering and the sacrifices, and the glory of the LORD filled the temple.” (2 Chronicles 7:1) “The fire shall ever be burning upon the altar; it shall never go out.” (Leviticus 6:13) ” NOW is the time for radical obedience. Now is the time to follow the Word of the Lord in the unexpected. What He’s asking of many, how He is leading many is unexpected, but He is making room in your life for you to receive the fire He is releasing and the downloads that are coming. These keys that will unlock major breakthrough in this new era will be given to those who have consecrated themselves to the Lord and are living yielded and with their ears close to His heart, listening to the heartbeat of God and His Word and not the drumbeat of man. God is going to do wonders! The miracles and the greater glory we are about to see, the majesty of God and the harvest that is upon us are unlike ANYTHING we have ever seen.” Lana Vawser (full email in the comments)
A ministry is now being birthed around this book: May 7, 2019 From Holy Fire Publishing: We are delighted to let you know that your book proposal A Reader’s Delight has been accepted for publication by Holy Fire Publishing, subjected for approval of the final manuscript. Galatians 3-4 “Grace was not just a “message” that Paul taught; it was the way he dealt with deceived people. Even over the confused churches that were mixing works and grace, Paul spoke words of blessing and peace. When we learn to bless and release “undeserved kindness” and “well-being” over those who oppose us, perhaps then they will listen to us. This “evil world system” would include the religious system that is based on duty and performance instead of love and grace.” The Passion Translation New Testament (2nd Edition) Kindle Edition.
