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 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.
❤❤❤ 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. Re-edit Exodus and Leviticus. Include the feasts of the Lord. These feasts are for all generations, it is His plan to unite the old with the new. The feast of Trumpets in October. WOW we will hear the trumpets as we are SNATCHED up to be with Jesus around the throne praising God “Holy, Holy, Holy” is our Lord!
❤❤❤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”. Jesus is “Behind the Curtain” ALL people have access to God, He is our High Priest. 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. 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. “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 I woke up Happy ☀ 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 was in the middle of a vast field of flowers. Not sure where I was, I hesitated to step on the glorious, beautiful flowers. Suddenly a voice from behind me whispers; ‘go ahead, keep walking this way’. So in faith I stepped onto the carpet of flowers then I woke up. Thank You Lord Jesus for the dreams and visions You are giving me. I will continue to write what You give me to write and I will not stop until it the book You commissioned me to write is translated into Spanish.
❤❤❤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.
Sunday May 5, 2019 I received an email for intercessory prayer warriors. 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 an 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! May 7, 2019 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)
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.
“On your walls, O Jerusalem, I have appointed watchmen; all day and all night they will never keep silent. You who remind the LORD, take no rest for yourselves; and give Him no rest until He establishes and makes Jerusalem a praise in the earth.” Isaiah 62:6–7
The watchmen appointed over Jalisco, Mexico will not be silent. Without fail we cry out to remind the Lord of His Words spoken over the nation of Mexico. Our responsibility is to storm the throne until the Judge relents and releases the captives in Mexico. In Hebrew the root meaning of the word watchman is “to hedge about; to guard and generally protect and observe from a distance.” My faithful friends have guarded me from giving up on getting the Compact Bible, a summary of the New Testament entitled “Behind the Curtain” published in Spanish. Their prayers have fortified my efforts with the spiritual strength I needed to persevere. My sisters-in-Christ; Mindy, Priscilla, Charlotte, Carol, Zoe, Kim and Gloria helped make this EBook available to spiritually hungry people in 22 countries. I thank my Lord Jesus Christ for giving me this assignment and for His faithfulness. I also thank my husband and my Cry Out group for taking up the burden to pray this book through it’s final revision.
Up at 4:30 am on May 22, 2019 to confirm the faith God gifted me. God loves me, and this I know because the Bible tells me so. The Holy Spirit lives in me, this I know because the Bible tells me so. The works, the healings, that Jesus manifested, I can do too, because the Bible tells me so.
June 23, 2019 Priscilla forwarded an ad from the Elijah List regarding a Christian Publishing Company named Xulon. Xulon pays to advertise on the Elijah List which has a circulation of over 250,000 members worldwide. I am in communication with Xulon as they professionally translate from English to Spanish and they have the ability to market in Mexico and in other Spanish speaking countries.
June 25, 2019 Charlotte gave me this word from God: “DISTILLED” Honoring the word from the Lord I looked up the meaning and prayed about it’s meaning to me. 1) Distilled: process of vaporization and subsequent condensation, as for purification or concentration. (Barb exhaled a vapor of relief as she finished her part of the condensation of the Word . Distilled, to extract components; to transform. (Barb listened to God’s Word while reading and highlighting the verses for His target audience to concentrate on … and be transformed by the renewing of the mind)
June 28, 2019 A divine appointment unscheduled with Susan Gregory at Laguna Plaza. For 35 years Susan was the caregiver to her daughter who has half a brain and her husband Gene who died in June 2019. As she walks out her grief, our Lord led her to speak to me about her prayer time and that the Lord revealed to her what was “Behind the Curtain” – In her description she named the book! Jesus pulled back the curtain and Susan said she was distressed because she knew Jesus was trying to show her something. “But I saw nothing!” Jesus laughed (He has a great sense of humor) and told Susan that she was staring at “Faith”. Jesus assured her that the mustard seed of faith is enough! This divine encounter was a double blessing – we both left encouraged! Thank You Jesus for how You meet us right where we are! Affirme again, Susan said “You just can’t tell everybody what Jesus reveals to you!” We shared a few of our private times with a visible, audible Jesus. It was a sacred moment as I shared about the encounter I had in Houston, Tx at a seminar. “Meeting your personal angel”. Timeless, or forgetting the things of the past, dates escape me, so this could have been in 1992? I lowered my head to pray – and an hour later when I woke up the church was emptying out. When I lowered my head a brilliant massive white figure sat in front of me, He reached His hands inside my heart, pulled out my heart, lifted my heart up and then placed it back inside of me. It seemed that I had my eyes shut for 30 seconds, but when I awoke, the hour seminar was over. Jesus had ministered to my broken heart for over an hour. My face was wet with tears when I went home. July 15, 2019 Received a $2,000 discount in the order to have “The Compact Bible” translated into Spanish. Hallelujah, Thank You Lord Jesus and for the ministering angels You have dispatched to help get this translated into many languages. AMEN
JULY 17, 2019 – I decree the prophecy spoken over the book God commissioned me to write. Lord Jesus I ask that Your angels assist in the translation of the Compact Bible into Spanish. I ask You Lord Jesus to multiply Your work in this project, that it becomes available in multiple languages to multiple people groups around the globe. I acknowledge the angels God has employed to see this project through to completion. ” Father in heaven, in Jesus name I decree that You are releasing Your angels of supernatural provision and healing in Jalisco, Mexico. I ask that the Holy Spirit invade hearts as He opens ears for people to hear what the Spirit is saying tonight at the bull ring in San Nicolas de Ibarra. I decree that Your angels, Your mighty ones, do Jehovah’s biding tonight in San Nicolas. I praise You Father as we co-labor with Your angels for Your glory in Mexico and around the globe! AMEN “Praise the Lord, you His angels, you mighty ones who do His bidding, who obey His word. Praise the Lord, all His heavenly hosts, you His servants who do His will (in Mexico). Praise the Lord, all His works everywhere in His dominion. (in Jalisco) Praise the Lord, my soul.” Psalms 103:20-23 – Kim and Carter invited us to lunch July 16, 2019 – from the Dalton, Georgia manifestation of oil, Kim anointed me with oil at our Cry Out group as I sat in the “Hot seat”. In Georgia, many folks are blessed with healings, protection and the favor of God. In Georgia the Lord said “I want you to pray Romans 12:1 into your spirit.” Romans 12:1-8 NIV “Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—His good, pleasing and perfect will. For by the grace given me I say to every one of you: Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment, in accordance with the faith God has distributed to each of you. For just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, so in Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others. We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us. If your gift is prophesying, then prophesy in accordance with your faith; if it is serving, then serve; if it is teaching, then teach, if it is to encourage, then give encouragement; if it is giving, then give generously; if it is to lead, do it diligently; if it is to show mercy, do it cheerfully.” Get this scripture into your spirit. Allow it to become who you are!
