A week ago today three ‘invisible jigsaw’ pieces fell into place and left me in awestruck wonder. So, allow me to ‘blow your mind’ – or rather to open it up your spiritual senses!
1st Puzzle Piece
Last Monday lunch-time I had opportunity to open up a book Nina recommended a few months ago, and in which she’d left many coloured tabs.
I’d long been wanting to get back into that book dear ol’ Mahesh Chavda had given me when he was in Shoreham, East Sussex, maybe 10 years ago. So a half-hour opportunity over lunch, after taking Nina to an appointment, enabled me to dip into it.
I managed most of the first chapter of Watch Of The Lord (published 1999) but of several significant points in ‘The Birth of the Watch’, I was especially struck by his wife Bonnie’s description of a vision of the Lord:
‘Suddenly, the Lord came as though from behind and stuck His right arm…in front of my face. I was staring at His hand, wrist and forearm as though it was the arm of a man before my eyes…There was a place around His wrist in the distinct shape of a wristwatch, where the skin had not been darkened by the sun. Obviously, He usually wore His watch there and had done so habitually for a long time. But the watch itself was missing. He said, “My watch is being repaired” His tone was not casual – it was crucial!’
You can read all about this by enlarging the following photos of pages 11 & 12:
2nd Puzzle Piece
I returned home and was able to continue working on the 2,000th post, telling about an actual public library and a dream about its symbolical disappearance and replacement by the ‘cyber-library’ on this website. In fact, I was completing the list of ‘sections’ and ‘shelves’ with the extensive library that had been compiled on my ‘Watch’.
However, I noticed a notification of a posting by Tony Puccio over in Tucson, Arizona, had arrived whilst I was away. It reads as follows and you’ll note its exceptionally appropriate title (click title for direct link)
A GOLD WATCH
When I think of a gold watch I think of a pocket watch given to a retiree. Or a fancy wrist watch, i.e., a Rolex. In the dream I had last night I was given a gold wrist watch. I remember that there were people who tried to steal it from me and then there were others who wanted to buy it from me.
The following scripture was dropped into my heart following the dream.
Eph 5:15 — Eph 5:16 (NKJV Strong’s)
Walk in Wisdom
See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil.
Time is a precious commodity that one cannot control and that which is given to is a gift from God. In the dream I mentioned people trying rather forcefully, I might add, to steal the watch from me. These represent people and things, I believe that either steal your attention, I call people like this energy drainers. The watch represented time which they may or may not know is a priceless commodity.Things represent those “things” that can dominate our time and the hours fly by. example, I remember when the internet first came out I would spend hours mindlessly searching it. The watch in my dream was on my wrist where it was both visible to me and others. It was not in my pocket where it would get an occasional glance at most. A portion of time is given to every individual and were are commended as Christians to redeem, make the most of every opportunity, the time because the days are evil.
I had a similar dream 8 years ago that I am reposting below (continue reading here)
3rd Puzzle Piece
Later, in the Monday evening I noticed the following notification arrived in connection with a comment made practically three months earlier to a blog that used the same title I’d got and been listing at the close of the post on my cyber-library in the Time:A Primer section – The Nature of Time:
SO we have the arrival of THREE items synchronised within 8 hours of one another that are all connected in one way or another to time, telling time and the passage of time.
Don’t you think the Lord is deliberately pointing out something important’s happening or about to take place?
