I (my body) was on my bed. I was not aware of either the room, the bed or my body.
I know not if it was a dream or a vision. I only know I saw, heard and felt. I felt with a deeper feeling than I had ever felt before. I know I have not felt so deeply since.
Here are the feeble words, endeavoring to tell of that time:
I saw Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane. He drooped there upon the ground. I saw, I sensed His agony. I saw blood. I knew it was coming from every pore. It ran together and fell to the ground. I knew this was significant for me--for all--for the very earth It fell upon. Jesus, from above, answered my unasked question, "This was for the cleansing of your will. When I said, `not My will, but Thine be done', it was accomplished."
The scene changed. I saw Jesus with the soldiers. I saw torn flesh of His face. By now I was weeping. I knew the blood of His face meant something for all. It still fell upon the ground. Again from above He spoke, "The blood of my face was for the shame of the world. My people, even My creation, shall be cleansed from all shame."
Now I saw the cruel crown of thorns. I saw it thrust over and into His head and brow. I saw the blood of the Son of God pour from the wounds. It covered His already covered face. I was now sobbing uncontrollably, yet I knew it meant something special for me and for all. I still fell upon the ground. From above He answered my wonder, "This is for the cleansing of the mind, until it is renewed, transformed and wholly sound."
I saw them strip His clothes from Him. He stood naked before all creation. I saw them, with their whip, lash, mangle and cut His back and sides. Forty stripes minus one they gave Him. He stood there bruised, broken and bleeding. So that I might be able to bear it, He shouted quickly, "For the peace of the whole world, is THIS! Aye, the chastisement of your peace was upon me. By these shall all be healed from their diseases."
Then came the cross. I could not bear to linger. I saw, I heard and felt the nails driven into and through His feet and His hands--more blood upon the ground--more LIFE pouring out upon the earth. Softly, soothingly He said from above, "For your hands and your feet -- to cleanse them -- to make them worthy and able to run with My words -- to be a help with your hands wherever you are."
I now saw Him high upon the cross. It was over. I saw a soldier thrust a spear into His side. I saw the last bit of blood (mixed with water) run until it was all gone. It, too, fell upon the ground. He had shed all His blood for me -- for you -- for the whole world -- for all creation. As I looked at this LIFE-BLOOD, He said from above, "It is here you were born of the water and the blood. It is here I died giving birth. Even as Eve was taken from Adam's side, so were you taken from Mine."
His Voice held a glad triumphant ring, yet I continued to weep. I wept as I had never wept before. The vision was gone. I now saw Him as He is. He reached down (I had fallen upon the ground). He lifted me up and held me close. His voice was soft and comforting, as the voice of my Father, my Mother, my Husband, my Friend, "It's alright. It's all over. Now you'll know that it IS done. It IS finished. Man can neither take from it or add to it. Yet My Blood still speaks and shall forever more."
My tears and sobs subsided. From utter exhaustion I sank into a sweet untroubled sleep. His Blood had availed for me -- for you -- for the whole world.
I awoke in awe and wonder. What was I to do with such an experience? Was it real? Would it be believed? Suddenly I knew I had seen, afterwards, what Isaiah had seen before. He also had wondered, "Who has believed our report?" Yet he continued to write: "His visage was marred more than any man's. He had no beauty that we should desire Him ... we hid our face from Him ... He was wounded for our transgressions ... He was bruised for our iniquities ... the chastisement of our peace was upon Him ... with His stripes we are healed ... He was a Lamb brought to slaughter ... it pleased the Lord to bruise Him and put Him to grief. . He shall see the travail of His soul and be satisfied ... He poured out His soul ... He bore our sins ... He made intercession for the transgressor..." (Isaiah 53:1-12)
This was the Lamb of God that took away the sin of the world. (John 1:29)
He destroyed the works of the devil. (1 John 3:8)
He made peace between God and man, and man and man.
This is our Savior. He died for our sins, but not for ours only, but for the sins of the whole world. (1 John 2:2)---Taken from: THINGS SEEN AND HEARD (Dreams, Visions and Words) recorded in 1972 by Helen Mallicoat
"For it is written: "I will destroy the wisdom of the wise; the intelligence of the intelligent I will frustrate." Where is the wise man? Where is the scholar? Where is the philosopher of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world? For since in the wisdom of God the world through its wisdom did not know him, God was pleased through the foolishness of what was preached to save those who believe. Jews demand miraculous signs and Greeks look for wisdom, but we preach Christ crucified: a stumbling block to Jews and foolishness to Gentiles, but to those whom God has called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God. For the foolishness of God is wiser than man's wisdom, and the weakness of God is stronger than man's strength. Brothers, think of what you were when you were called. Not many of you were wise by human standards; not many were influential; not many were of noble birth. But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong. He chose the lowly things of this world and the despised things-- and the things that are not-- to nullify the things that are, so that no one may boast before him. It is because of him that you are in Christ Jesus, who has become for us wisdom from God-- that is, our righteousness, holiness and redemption. Therefore, as it is written: "Let him who boasts boast in the Lord" (1 Corinthians 1:19-31).
