This was an experience I had in 1999. We published a form of it a few years
ago. I wanted to bring it back out and go into more detail because of the relevance
for this season.
I was caught up into a trance in which I saw a vast library in heaven. The main
room was divided into three sections: past, present, and future. It was a very
busy place with angels and saints who had already entered into eternity. It
was not like an earthly library where we try and stimulate a quiet somber attitude.
It was a place of action! People were reading, writing, and discussing the material.
I looked around trying to take in as much of the room as I could see.
The Book of Life
There was one book that was constantly referenced in the middle of the room.
It was living and felt like it had its own consciousness because the power of
what it contained was so intense. I would describe it as a computer that had
the knowledge of the process of God's love in our temporal time frame. It was
the Book of Life and there were angels and spiritual beings all around it. The
pages rolled out like a scroll in many directions. I don't know how to explain
how this worked but it was amazing. Scrolls of light beamed the information
from the living pages into their hearts and imprinted on their spirits.
The Lambs Book of Life didn't just have names in it. It was the actual revelation
of the testimony of Jesus and His reward. It categorized how He showed His love
to everyone and who responded. Not only showing the bride's one time response
but every response that each person individually had made towards His divine
pursuit over their lifetime. It was the most amazing book ever written because
it was being 'penned' by the glorious Holy Spirit at all times.
The Section of Library of the Past
When I could bring myself to look past this process I began to survey the various
sections of the library. I first noticed the section on the past. I saw angels
extracting books and bringing them to Earth and delivering them to people so
that we would have wisdom and impartation from the past - what God has already
done on the Earth.
I realized that these books were not like books on earth. They were actually
prophetic revelation that when imparted onto the earth would act as an expansion
to someone's very being. There were people who were given a book and it would
inspire them to teach or write about great revivals of the past or spiritual
happenings so the revelation of God that had already been revealed in other
generations would be built upon- great truths of the past rediscovered. There
were books written about men and women of God throughout history and various
moves of God on earth.
As I watched this unfold, I saw numerous old historical documents beginning
to surface on Earth that had been hidden away. Nevertheless it was now the prophetic
time for them to be revealed. I knew this was an "end of the age" experience
that proved we are living in the day of the Lord. The importance of what was
being re-revealed, but with new and expanded comprehension, spoke of the Kingdom
of God coming upon us. I could feel the magnitude of some of these testimonies
that caused a deep yearning in me for Jesus to return.
Revelation of the Ages
There were also teaching books that angels were giving different people and
they would rediscover teachings that had been all but lost or had never been
fully developed! Very soon we are going to see an emergence of teachings that
builds a much better context for us to understand Christian history and the
different church ages as seen through the eyes of heaven. Revelation will come
to many who will be able to interpret historical events and bring great light
on societies of the past.
The Library Section of the Present
Then, I was brought to another section of books. I looked upon the section of
the "present." In the "present" section there were spiritual beings sitting
at tables watching the movement and impact of Heaven upon the earth and writing
history with the Holy Spirit's interpretation as it transpired. Many times the
books they were writing were also given to people on Earth. When individuals
received these books they would be filled with understanding and wisdom about
the state of the church and the condition of the world. It was giving them a
global perspective of how Jesus was being revealed on the Earth and they would
fellowship with His burning passion to inherit His reward. Again some people
were furnished these understandings to be a trumpet to herald them through their
teachings and the writing of books.
The Library Section of the Future
The last area I was brought to was the "future" section. There were divine guards
set up and I wasn't allowed past them. I had to look from afar because I was
not in heaven at this time to receive revelation from these books (to my disappointment).
Most of the books had seals or locks on them. There were dates on the locks,
and I knew that some of these books could not be opened for some time! But others
were to be opened well in advance of the events taking place.
As I looked around there was a table skirting the boundaries of where I was
not allowed to pass. At the table was a man reading a book from the future section
and I walked up behind him and peered over his shoulder. However, he closed
the book very fast and a seal appeared on the book as he got back up and placed
it upon the shelf. He didn't say anything out loud but I felt a rebuke from
him. The fear of the Lord touched me and I began to shake because I had acted
with presumption. I almost came out of the trance but there was great mercy
that flooded me for my immaturity. These were Holy books that represented the
Kingdom touching the Earth and I saw two guarding angels over them. (Later a
close friend of mine named Jill Austin called these "The Guardians of the Glory.")
The Future is Written In Heaven
Then as the mercy and love of God was warming me, a spiritual being came to
me and motioned me to come into the section on the future. The guarding angels
almost scared me too much to pass them, but this spiritual being had so much
kindness I knew I would be safe. He brought me to the first of the many shelves
of books that were closest to the middle of the Library. He stood next to me
and pointed at different volumes
I looked up at the shelves and there were names on some of the books. I recognized
many of the names he pointed out so I new they would be written in the near
future. Some were the names of authors that I recognized, but others were the
names of the books. We need to understand that although these were books in
heaven they were not necessarily written books on earth yet. The names of the
books were all either historical events, or God's moves on His church, while
others were named after people and places. Few people were allowed to get near
this section. If they did get near them, only a small number of books could
be written because the seal was part of the heart of God that was too holy to
A little bit of understanding hit me (I will not go into detail about this here,
but will just say an example of what I saw was a book that said "The Testimony
of George Bush" and it was a prophetic testimony of our own US President and
works he would accomplish for God that will be written and published as an encouragement
especially to the evangelical church). There were many such titles, and they
had timing on them that when activated would be broadcast worldwide.
In This Library Room was Charles Finney!
After looking at many books, the spiritual being that was with me motioned me
toward the center of the room again. He led me to stand next to some men who
were already in eternity. One of the men was talking to two other men. I heard
the Holy Spirit say "That is Charles Finney" and I grew excited inside! I haven't
read much about Charles Finney, but there was the glory of our abiding God pulsating
from him. His eyes were filled with the revelation of Jesus and the plans of
He was talking about revival and telling the two other men "What God did in
my day was awesome, and many of us were privileged to experience great outpourings
that are now looked upon as revival. But there is a release of glory from heaven
coming that will bring such a complete revival to America that it will far exceed
any revival ever known in any country."
America is Close to Revival
"The church in America is full of doomsday prophets proclaiming an end to America,
but they don't understand that the country is only a few hundred years old and
still in its infancy. It has many destinies to play out, and God is going to
reactivate the covenants of the forefathers in the land, and America will start
to grow and mature. God has both hidden and obvious purposes for America that
will unfold over a long period of time and this coming revival is going to activate
the plans of the Creator that were promises at the forefront of the nation's
history." He spoke of a coming year and said: "This is a gateway year that will
help build the gate from heaven to Earth. The Holy Spirit will whisper strategic
things into the land through churches, music, media, events, and then soon these
things will be shouted from roof tops!"
At this point I saw a calendar that had various years on it. There were 8 future
years (not in succession) circled and names of cities next to different years.
The first year only had a few major cities, but each year that was circled had
more and more cities until there were too many to list. I could see a cloud
off in the distance of this vast library, and I realized that it was a cloud
of angels with glory swirling around it. It was the angelic host that would
release these things on Earth. There was constant movement in the cloud. The
scene was truly beyond description.
Charles' Message to Me
Then Charles Finney turned to me, (I didn't even know he knew I was listening),
and he shouted at me face to face "One Nation Under God!" "One Nation Under
God!" "ONE NATION UNDER GOD!" he said this ten times. Some kind of deep impartation
came with his words and rested in the bowels of my spirit. I had a knowing that
Jesus has an incredible plan to build the church in America and bring revival
to the lost. He is going to bring a picture of His body all over the world through
America! I knew that intercession was going to go forth on the Earth with new
strategies for America.
I Saw a Vision of Holiness Hitting the Air Waves
I then saw the spirit of Holiness released from Isaiah 11. I saw it touching
media and broadcasting services. I saw God ordained messages broadcast through
the media waves into the earth. God is about to claim His ownership in radio
stations, TV, and movie theaters. I saw that He wants a satellite that man
has made by His inspiration. I saw a special anointing come on these tools to
bring the message of holiness and the cross unto salvation.
After I saw the Holy Spirit change the atmosphere of the air waves with waves
of His anointing hitting the media. I saw it cause power bursts that would literally
destroy in the natural some of the secular equipment used by organizations of
the world. There will be some days of disturbance that will hit multiple media
centers and these will be signs that the Forerunner Spirit is going to come
upon these very industries.
Commissioned Back to Earth
At the end of this vision I was looking at the Book of Life again. The spiritual
being that had been with me in the Library Section of the Future came over to
me once more. He had books in his hands and he started to push them towards
me. I thought he was handing them to me so I stuck out my hands- instead he
pushed them into me. As I took them in I was sent back to earth.
I was sitting in my chair and God spoke to my spirit saying "I am releasing
books from every section to expand people! The Library room of heaven will be
known on earth! It will bring a manifestation of my government being established.
Many leaders will be visited and the difference in what comes forth in their
communications will be evident."
