As I was with the Lord this morning I saw a vision of a goldsmiths
operation set up in Johns living room. There were many people there
but their faces were some how unclear. It seemed like all the ones that
have come on Saturday nights, the youth, the minstrels, and the many others
that have been faithful to come but I knew them in the spirit not by their
I did see my husband Roy at the open door of a large furnace about where
the minstrels sit and he held in his hand a long handled tool with a cup
on the end that held liquid gold, Bob Kirk was on the other side working
the furnace to keep the fire hot enough. I saw the glow of the fire, the
sweat dripping off everyone from the intense heat, the black dust and
gold metal filings on the people, it was very hard work. It was also very
loud with voices calling out things to be done, the sound of the roaring
furnace and the clanging of metal. We were all there doing many tasks
that were hard for me to see but we all had a part in the operation of
forging swords out of metal.
As all this was going on I observed the top of the roof and watched as
two angels seemed to be practicing dueling with their swords, there was
a great many of them everywhere on the property doing this sort of practice.
All except the large angels out front. They were more intensely watching

not go out.
I was reminded of the song my daughter Emily sang last night in home fellowship
about His great love. Some of the words were:
When He pours out His love, it lights the fire,
The people will not be able to say
Where is your God,
For all will see Him.
