This revisited blog is the third of five installments in the “Is Anybody Listening” series. I hope you enjoy it! 🤔
A Final Confirmation:
As I wrote in the previous blog… Pam and I both felt that the two letters, the prophetic Word received in Sedona and the dream Jackie dreamt was not enough for us to move on regardless of the fact both contained references to Pam and I potentially moving and Snowflake, Arizona. For this reason, we decided more confirmation was needed before we could call what I’d heard and saw a Word from God. We were privy to other bits of information we also thought potentially too minor for confirmation sake; therefore, we needed something more, more solid. Lord… we need a real confirmation.
Sunday, May 24th 2009 Pam and I sat down to pray, asking the Lord for another confirmation. In what would shortly appear to be an answer to those prayers. Pam’s mother Sandy calls Pam and dives into an odd conversation for my Mother-in-Law. Sandy begins sharing a phone call she overheard between my Father-in-Law, Bob, and Jim C. a longtime friend of Pam’s family. It seemed Jim had come to Tucson on business and decided to visit Bob and Sandy “at their home” for the first time in as many as 30 years. Generally, Bob and Jim would connect when working together or at a Bar for drinks but seldom would they ever connect at one or the other’s home. This was an unusual event. This in itself did not appear to be an answer to prayer.
Pam casually sat listening to her mother’s daily news blast when Sandy suddenly began laboring over Jim’s ranch in Snowflake Arizona; Jim’s cattle in Snowflake Arizona; Jim’s crops in Snowflake Arizona. We had known Jim for decades without once ever discussing Jim’s ranching business or interests in Snowflake, Arizona. Suddenly his ranch is the most fascinating topic of discussion for Pam’s mother. And that was the answer/confirmation for which we were looking! Pam recognized the connection immediately after hearing her mother repeated saying the words snowflake, Snowflake Arizona, Jim interests in Snowflake. Now, I on the other hand was sitting across the room and could only hear Pam repeating the word snowflake over and over in their conversation. Mind you, we live in sunny and hot Tucson, Arizona and this is in the heat of May; snowflake is not a common word spoken in during the summers of Tucson, Arizona.
So here are some of the connections:
- Pam’s friend: Kim’s two conversations regarding snowflakes in Idaho in late April.
- Jackie’s dream where Jackie mentions Pam and I moving to Snowflake, Arizona.
- The Word I received from the Lord in Sedona showing Snowflake Arizona in the top portion of the circle in the vision and on the map north of the Blue Range Primitive Area and Apache Sitgreaves National Forest and feeling compelled to include it in the circle during the vision.
- Then… out of the blue, shortly after prayer requesting a confirmation, Jim C. comes to Tucson to visit Bob and Sandy followed by Sandy repeatedly mentioning Jim and his ranch in Snowflake Arizona at least a half a dozen times in one short telephone conversation.
What are the odds the word “snowflake” would come up in conversation in Tucson Arizona in the heat of summer at just the right time (within two hours of our prayer) to confirm a prophetic Word containing the repeated word, snowflake?
We agreed with the idea the Word of Knowledge in Sedona, Arizona was from the Lord. Therefore, Pam and I would begin the adventure by going up to the areas in and around the Apache Sitgreaves National Forest and down through the Blue Range Primitive Area to ‘look’ for land in which to buy and live.
This is where the confusion truly began.
Remember, the Lord said, “I want you to go up there (referring to the area on the map in the vision) and look for land on which to buy and live.” And this after sending Pam and I on a two-week hiking trip to receive a Word from the Lord in which I actually received a Word from the Lord.
So, we’ll continue this next time with “Still Listening” – – – –
Holy confusion Batman, what’s God going to do next?
Batman rubs his rubbery black chin. “Go forth and obey the Lord Robin. Just remember to listen carefully to your Bat-Phone and trust the Lord whatever He may say.”
“Golly gee Batman, if that’s what you think we should do?”
That knowing smile crossed his darkened visage, “Well, it’s either that or read Steven R. Harrel’s book (wait for the giant reverb) “This Side of the Whirlwind, the Coming Apocalypse!”
“Who’s this Steven R. Harrel guy?” Robin asks.
Batman simply shakes his rubbery head and walks away in disbelief…
After all… who doesn’t know Steven R. Harrel.
Imagine not knowing Steven R. Harrel. That’s rich! It’s the guy in the picture below.
No the other guy in the other picture below.
To be continued next time on, “This Side of the Whirlwind: Still Listening.”
Don’t touch that dial – Bat-Buddies 🙂 I know too silly:()
