Shepherds Come Forth!

Then I will give you shepherds after my own heart, who will lead you with knowledge and understanding.

Jeremiah 3: 15

Vision during prayer 03.08.18

As I stood watch in the lighthouse (for background read The Lighthouse, The Watchman), the Lord appeared and spoke to me to follow Him. I followed Him down the stairs and out of the door. Just outside the lighthouse was a small rocky hill with many caves. It was almost dark out, cold and wet.

I noticed as I followed the Lord how simple He appeared. He was dressed like a shepherd; He wore a long cloak that almost reached His feet and He carried a shepherd’s staff.

As we got to the rocky caves I noticed that there were people hiding in them. They were frightened and did not come out to talk with us. We walked past a few of these caves, all filled with people before we stopped. I asked the Lord how they had ended up in this situation. He explained to me that they had been shipwrecked on the shore and could no longer move on with their lives. This was why it was so important for me to be watchful and shine the light of the lighthouse.

I asked the Lord if I should return to the lighthouse and shine the light at the caves, so that the people would come out. He replied no, as the light was too strong and it would frighten them even more. The Lord then suggested that we pray to the Father to ask for guidance as to how we should proceed.

I saw the Lord raise His hands, His face and His voice to the heavenlies as He spoke to His Father. I fell on my knees and whispered my own prayers.

As we prayed I heard a sound. It was the sound of many feet running.  I looked up and I saw above the caves many shepherds climbing down the hill to join us below. The Lord and I immediately offered up our praise and thanksgiving for God’s provision and wisdom.

I then saw how the shepherds gathered the people out of the caves. They possessed a compassion for the lost in a way I had never seen before; they had the heart of Jesus. The drew the people out with love, with sincere and caring words.

I will set up shepherds over them who will feed them; and they shall fear no more, nor be dismayed, nor shall they be lacking,” says the Lord.

Jeremiah 23: 4

We made our way together back to the lighthouse. it was like a little exodus.

We opened a back door to the lighthouse and entered into a beautiful ballroom. The ballroom was so big, I did not understand how it was possible for it to be inside the lighthouse, but somehow it was. The room was sparkling and filled with light. Golden cutlery and crockery had been set at the table. The room was decorated so beautifully, as if a wedding dinner was about to take place.

There were corridors leading to rooms adjoining the banquet hall, rooms where the people could bath and put on their new clothes which had been prepared for them. Afterwards they would return to the hall where they would dine and thereafter rest.

I asked the Lord what would become of the people. He told me the shepherds would receive training to sail ships, they would be trained to be captains and then they would be sent out in groups with the people that had been delivered.

After seeing all this, I returned to my post at the top of the lighthouse, to shine my light into the darkness, to keep watch even more alertly over the area ,lest any ships would be shipwrecked on my watch. I prayed for the Holy spirit to guide and equip me.

36 When he saw the crowds, he had compassion for them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. 37 Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; 38 therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.”

Matthew 9: 36-338
