On the way to the Kingdom of God Part 3.2: Collecting

1 The Lord said to Moses, “Yet one plague more I will bring upon Pharaoh and upon Egypt. Afterward he will let you go from here. When he lets you go, he will drive you away completely. 2 Speak now in the hearing of the people, that they ask, every man of his neighbor and every woman of her neighbor, for silver and gold jewelry.” (Ex 11: 1-2)

I find it exciting that the LORD instructed Moses that the people, shortly before the exodus from Egypt, set out to collect silver and gold from the neighbors, i.e. also from the Egyptian people.

Will we also experience something similar this time during the exodus / during the rapture? Will we also need to get materials before the upcoming trip?

Small and large - always two parts

Two years ago the Lord Jesus gave me a very strange assignment. "My little one, get two things from everything:

  • small backpack - big backpack

  • small suitcase - big suitcase

  • small tent - big tent

  • little ark - big ark

  • Daily Planner - Monthly Planner

  • Year Planner - Five Year Planner

The calendars and year planners quickly made sense because as a former teacher I was used to working with different plans and as a prophetess who receives a lot of data etc. it is important not to lose track. It had become important for me to follow God's instructions exactly and when Jesus told me to fast for 390 days, I had to be able to write down the end date exactly.

The backpacks

At first I didn't know exactly what Jesus was saying to me, but our Lord is always very patient with me. In 2013 he asked me to go on a pilgrimage. Pilgrimages were very foreign to me until then, but I found the idea very exciting. I decided to walk one of the Ways of St. James in Germany with my little Jack-Russel bitch. In addition to sensible hiking shoes, I needed a larger hiking backpack for this, because my small daypack - that was clear to me - was not suitable for a one-week week. The route was soon set. I made it easy for myself and booked small guest rooms on the route, because dogs were not allowed in most hostels or accommodations. Originally I wanted to go alone because my husband wasn't on vacation, but then Jesus surprised us. Two days before leaving for Soltau, my husband suddenly got a week's extra leave - just like that. We quickly got him a backpack and the right hiking shoes, put the cats in the home and set off.

The Suitcases

It started with a dream. In this, two sisters helped me to pack my suitcase. A small suitcase for hand luggage and a large suitcase for luggage. Between us three women, the father moved, dressed in a blue bathrobe and brown slippers. Again and again he gave us little things: compass, maps, sundial, Bible, hymn book, flight tickets, travel tickets for upcoming ship trips, sewing needles, towels, ... Everything should be packed urgently. We women made sure the clothes we packed were durable, comfortable, useful and made of good material. Hats, scarves, gloves, good jackets and rain protection were also important.

Some time later I urgently had to fly to South Africa to help my parents who lived there. My new suitcases, which I bought right after the dream, served me well.

The Tents

In 2020 the Lord suggested I go camping and suggested a small tent that I could transport with my bike if necessary. Of course, I immediately thought of emergencies and that we Christians might also be persecuted. A life as a Christian was not easy even back in the days of the first apostles, why should it be different now? My husband and I had hardly gotten a handy two-man tent when the gentleman sent us camping, right at the beginning of the Covid pandemic. We dared to go to a campsite in Meschede. The week made it clear to us that we would quickly get on our nerves in such a small tent and that we would not have a chance to sit properly on a chair if it was raining.

After the trip, the Lord asked me to write down all the experiences and compare them to the Exodus of that time. It occurred to me that the people of God must have taken wagons, domestic animals, tents, carpets with them on the journey. After all, they had been on the road for 40 years, even if they could have made it in just under a week. They also had gold and silver with them (Exodus 11:1-2) and they were able to make the tabernacle from the articles they brought. So I had to get us a bigger tent - one with an awning where you had space to stay dry when it rained. There were also sensible mattresses, a camping table and chairs, etc. We are now well prepared for a camping trip. I was allowed to test the big tent with my children in Potsdam in June 2021. Conclusion: Air mattresses are comfortable, but you should have a repair kit with you. Proper loungers would be great. I was interested in how the disciples had traveled with Jesus? Last year Jesus showed me in the film series "The Chosen" that he and his disciples always had luggage with them and transported it on trailers and wagons.

The Arcs

What is an ark? When we think of the ark, we see Noah's ark before us. It is a floating box smeared with tar and pitch that provided shelter from rain and weather for the animals and Noah and his family (the remnant) back in the days of the Deluge. But it is also the Ark of the Covenant (arc of the covenant). The Ark of the Covenant is a box-like ark in which the commandments and other scriptures of the covenant were kept. It is covered in gold.

So I knew that God had asked me to get certain boxes or containers. At first I only thought of aluminum boxes and got a small and a medium-sized box that was good for storing food and tent materials, etc. Apparently this wasn't quite right or good enough, for the Lord told me to keep looking.

Eventually I found out that Jesus was talking about trailers. I started with a pilgrim chariot. You can store a lot of luggage on it during a hike (pilgrimage) or for a longer bike ride. Then I looked for a trailer for the car, but finally I came up with the idea of ​​the caravan. This was also bought last year and I was allowed to stay in it for a few nights.

The arks also reminded me of the early days of my website. In a vision I saw, first small lifeboats that gathered other people and finally brought them into a large ship with the inscription "JESUS ​​ARC". Jesus wants to save many more people. He wants to take her on his church ship and bring her to safety. What this ship looks like, how the rapture will take place, we all do not know exactly, but I am sure that the Lord will save us in a similar way as he did with Noah and the remnant, with the people of Israel when they came out of Egypt, how he helped Ezra and Nehemiah and the people. God has prepared me for a longer journey with certain baggage. Exactly how it will be will surely be revealed to us in more detail soon.

In Revelation 12 we read that the WOMAN will be saved:

But the woman was given the two wings of the great eagle so that she might fly from the serpent into the wilderness, to the place where she is to be nourished for a time, and times, and half a time.(Revelation 12:14)

Will we, who belong to the woman, be saved in a special way and will we then be in a safe place for 3.5 years just like the Israelites did when they left Egypt? Do we need the various suitcases, bags, tents, drawers and boxes for this? How can we prepare for this special time? Or will we believers meet the Lord in the air (1 Thessalonians 4:17) or is it a combination? We know that the rapture will be secret and instantaneous (1 Corinthians 15:50-54), while the Second Coming will be for all to see (Revelation 1:7; Matthew 24:29-30) and not before other specific end-time events have taken place (2 Thessalonians 2:4; Matthew 24:15-30; Revelation chapters 6-18).

In summary, I can only say that I should prepare myself in a certain way and was obedient, even if I often had doubts about the orders. I feel that all the preparations will make a special sense that I don't quite understand yet. Trusting that I understood the Lord correctly, I now simply wait and see what will happen.
