Excerpt from Shirley's
1st July 07
I will give thee the treasures of darkness, and hidden riches
of secret places, that thou mayest know that I, the Lord,
which call thee by thy name, am the God of Israel. Isaiah
Jesus told me that
if I was as rich as Bill Gates I could not be as rich as
finding this place. These riches were far beyond and not
even to be compared with all the riches in the world.
He showed me a cupboard
over to the right where there were nuggets, gold nuggets
and I held one in my hand. I knew that it was something
so precious and worth keeping. The scripture came to me:
Receive my instruction,
and not silver; and knowledge rather than choice gold.
For wisdom is better than rubies; and all the things that
may be desired are not to be compared to it
Riches and honour are with me; yea, durable riches and righteousness.
My fruit is better than gold, yea, than fine gold; and my
revenue than choice silver.
I lead in the way of righteousness, in the midst of the
paths of judgment:
That I may cause those that love me to inherit substance;
and I will fill their treasures.Proverbs 10,11&18-21
I knew that these
gold nuggets were the wisdom and instruction of God and
were to be held in great respect and pondered on and obeyed.
The next cupboard
closer to me on the left was filled with rubies and diamonds.
The Lord showed me that these were the precious promises
of God. These delighted my heart and shone and sparkled.
The scripture came to me:
Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises:
that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature,
having escaped the corruption that is in the world through
lust. 2 Peter 4.
These were the precious promises that He had given me over
the years and had kept me safe and sane.
In the middle of these two cupboards was another one. In
the midst of it flowed oil and also there was a fountain
of water. The Lord showed me that this was to do with my
gifts. The oil of anointing that flowed as I sung and water
that brought life as I praised. This was a special anointing
that had been given to me. I knew that this was the most
important calling in my life. And that I should focus on
it and develop it and not neglect it. Help me Father, in
Jesus Name to take your vision seriously
Above these cupboards was another cupboard. On the left
was hung up the armour, just like you would see a knights
armour. It was all made of metal and was a dark silver colour.
The helmet was there hung up and the shield and the sword.
The breastplate and the girdle and the shoes too, just like
a knights that seemed to be long like they were on the knights.
This of course was
the armour I put on everyday and stand in against the foes
we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities,
against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this
world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye
may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done
all, to stand.
Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth,
and having on the breastplate of righteousness;
And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of
Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall
be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit,
which is the word of God:
Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit,
and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication
for all saints; Ephesians 6.12-18
Then next to the armour
in another section was a sceptre, and a crown and a purple
velvet cloak. He was showing me that I am a king and a priest
also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house,
an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable
to God by Jesus Christ. 1Pe 2:5
And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father;
to him [be] glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.
I felt a bit intrepid about the next one, but Jesus said
this was the best of all. In the next section of the cupboard
was a bridal gown. It had jewels sewn into it and He showed
me a part of it. It was made of silk and was packed away
in a box in tissue, like you would see a bridal gown.
will greatly rejoice in the LORD, my soul shall be joyful
in my God; for he hath clothed me with the garments of salvation,
he hath covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a
bridegroom decketh [himself] with ornaments, and as a bride
adorneth [herself] with her jewels. Isa 61:10
And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down
from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for
her husband. Rev 21:2
