Greetings Love For His People friends and Now Think On This readers,
As the Lord gives us dreams, visions, and prophetic words (as promised He would), we must be diligent in seeking what He is saying to us, and not dismiss them as “odd, weird, not understandable”. He enjoys giving these opportunities to us in order for us to know and walk in His ways. It is our choice whether we will seek further understanding or not.
“God gets glory from concealing things; kings get glory from investigating things.” (Proverbs 25:2, Complete Jewish Bible)
I share the following email written on June 14, 2019, with you, for your consideration too and further thought, as I shared it previously with others.
Ahava and shalom,

In further prayer in regards to the word/vision you received during our staff prayer time on Tuesday, June 11, 2019, of the Lord wanting us to “paint or place His Name on the roof of the Barn, for all to see”, I am not wanting to simply dismiss it, as does happen at times due to lack of understanding or unbelief. I am believing it was given to us and for us to seek His thoughts more certainly. And so I have. These are my thoughts.
1. The Lord says that His Name is over Jerusalem, as He has chosen it to be as such. It is He Himself Who has placed His Name there.
1 Kings 14:21, “Now Rehoboam the son of Solomon reigned in Judah. Rehoboam was forty-one years old when he became king, and he reigned seventeen years in Jerusalem, the city which the Lord had chosen from all the tribes of Israel to put His name there.” NASU
Also in Ezra 6:12, “May the God who has caused His name to dwell thereoverthrow any king or people who attempts to change it, so as to destroy this house of God in Jerusalem. I, Darius, have issued this decree, let it be carried out with all diligence!” NASU
Being He has chosen Jerusalem to put His Name there, we know it is a very special place. He thus has chosen to dwell there and will return there,
In my spirit, what I put forth in consideration is that what you saw in the spirit is that the Lord is also putting His Name on this place, and it is thus a very place. Not just some ordinary “barn”, but as barns are known for gathering and storing until the time for planting, and then gathering/storing the harvest is done, so will this place be.
Hag 2:19, “I am giving you a promise now while the seed is still in the barn. You have not yet harvested your grain, and your grapevines, fig trees, pomegranates, and olive trees have not yet produced their crops. But from this day onward I will bless you.”New Living Translation
Antioch International Church, The Barn May 2019
I believe that as we have heard additionally previous prophetic words, some even by you under the move of the Holy Spirit on other occasions, this place, the Barn, has spring(s) of Living Water that the Lord has placed here. He put them there in the days of Jim and Tammy Faye Bakker, and though the enemy has tried repeatedly to send disrepute, destruction, and despair among the Lord’s people because of what is here, the Lord is telling us again that He has chosen this place, this Barn, as a place where His Name does yet dwell.

I believe He has never given up on this place, even as He has never given up on Jerusalem. Once He chooses, it will never be forsaken or left to destruction, but will (has been) restored for His end-time purposes.
We can take it a step further and consider that even as He is returning His Chosen Ones to Israel (aliyah), He will/is bringing back His people, in this area, to this place, even as we must remain steadfast in preparing for those days which are coming to this place, the Barn.
With that said, I again share these prophetic actions that the Lord has given me in the last month also, that I believe relates to what He has spoken through you.
P.S. In May 2019 I returned from my 20th trip to Israel. And guess what? I brought back for you my last 58 short videos I entitled “Walk With Me in Israel”. You can join me as I walk through the beautiful land and cities of Israel. Watch them here on our YouTube channel: Walk With Me – Israel May 2019
Also, my previous ones from other locations are here also on YouTube: Walk With Me
