This was last night at Kings. It was Valentine’sDay 2017, and Kings was having a special night for us. They had food and love cards from God. We basically just did a regular worship night for God, but then at the end of it, we did visions and prophecies for each other. Kaleb had to leave early for his intramural basketball game, Julia had to leave to study math, and Nate just left with Kaleb, but he said he wanted to watch the Timberwolves game. Anyway, me, Sharnae, and Sara were still there. I had felt very little from the Lord last night, while it seemed everyone else was getting revelations. Austin had one about sex, and how Jesus is like our groom. We must open up and accept him like a bride accepting her groom during sex. Then Jesus plants his seed, or “comes” inside of us and lives in us. It sounds weird, but it makes sense. He is a gentleman, so He won’t force himself in us, we have to accept Him. Anyway, after his revelation, we did the prophecies. Someone would sit in the middle of our group while the rest of us asked God for a word. Many people were getting things about mirrors. The one I really liked was about a girl trying on clothes and admiring them in the mirror, then suddenly the mirror shattered, and standing behind it was Jesus. This totally meant that we were looking at ourselves, our own image, and not God’s. Then Jesus shattered the mirror and looked back at us. This is amazing because we are supposed to be like Jesus, when we look in the mirror we should see Jesus in ourselves, we were made in His image. Self-image is earthly and of the flesh, not of God. I also received a vision for Amelia. I saw a golden ship floating in the sea. The sea was rough and calm, it seemed to go back and forth between the two. When the sea was rough and remained rough, a rainbow came down and covered the whole sea. I think the sea was our sin. When we sin, the sea gets rough, and when we were following God, the sea was calm. Well, the sea was rough, so we were sinning, but then a rainbow came down, like the promise from God after the great flood in Noah’s time. The rainbow symbolizes a new start, like after a flood. A new start is like our repentance and God’s grace coming down on us. We become a new creation after we accept Jesus, and the rainbow takes away our sin when our seas get rough. It is forgiveness from God, and we are the gold ship floating on the sea, which could be seen as the world. The world that tempts us to sin and stir up the waves. Finally, it was nearing the end of Kings and I had not gone in the middle yet. I really wanted to go in, but I did not want to take it away from someone else. Finally, Brandon asked if I wanted to go in. I said sure and crawled in. Sara’s vision was that I was a wolf, I was independent and could survive on my own, but in a pack, I was much stronger. I love that vision. Sharnae said that she saw kindness and strength in me. I was holding a child’s hand in her vision, but I was stooped down low so I could do so. I think this means being uncomfortable for someone else’s comfort. Then she said at the same time I had strength, and no one could sway me from what I believed in. I loved that vision too. Amanda then said she saw me as a boxer, but as I was boxing, I was beat boxing at the same time. Everyone laughed. She said that I was strong and fighting for the kingdom of God, and my beat boxing turned into tongues. I had my own vision as well about the trip me and my Grandma were going to take. We were planning a trip for the summer and I wanted to go to Washington, DC. There was the Lincoln Memorial that I really wanted to go to. Now, in my vision I saw the Lincoln Memorial with a huge gold crown on top of the building. In place of Lincoln, there was Jesus or God on the throne. He had a crown on too. He had given all of us Christians crowns and we bowed down to Him and thanked Him. He then told us that we were Kings, like the group name, and that we were going to revolutionize how people saw Kings. Kings have always been seen as the top of society, mostly because they are rich and have power. But, truly Kings are leaders, and leaders are supposed to put themselves below others and serve them. Jesus told us to go out and be Kings by leading others by putting ourselves below them and serving them. Amanda brought up that Lincoln symbolizes honesty and truth, and Jesus was the greatest truth we could ever know. I never thought about that, I just thought it popped into my head because of the trip I was taking. Everything happens for a reason, and I think taking the trip is meant to happen, or at least planning it did. I love that vision because it explains what we are here for, we are royalty of God. To a non-believer’s eye, us calling ourselves royalty might make them think we are full of ourselves, however it is the exact opposite. We are not full of ourselves, but full of God, the one who made us and gave us the chance to be royalty. As royalty, we are Kings and leaders of the world, which, again someone might think we think we are higher than everyone else by calling ourselves leaders, but really leaders are supposed to serve. That is something the world has destroyed; the world has made leaders to be better than everyone else. It is so ironic, and the earth and heaven is so different in this sense, and I love it. God is so great, even when we do not feel Him there, we can know and believe He is there.
