A Vision of the Ark of God's Presence
by Robert Burgess

"And they set the ark of God upon a new cart, and brought it out of the house of Abinadab that was in Gibeah: and Uzzah and Ahio, the sons of Abinadab, drave the new cart... And David and all the house of Israel played before the LORD on all manner of instruments made of fir wood, even on harps, and on psalteries, and on timbrels, and on cornets, and on cymbals. And when they came to Nachon's threshingfloor, Uzzah put forth his hand to the ark of God, and took hold of it; for the oxen shook it. And the anger of the LORD was kindled against Uzzah; and God smote him there for his error; and there he died by the ark of God. And David was displeased, because the LORD had made a breach upon Uzzah: and he called the name of the place Perezuzzah to this day. And David was afraid of the LORD that day, and said, How shall the ark of the LORD come to me? So David would not remove the ark of the LORD unto him into the city of David: but David carried it aside into the house of Obededom the Gittite. And the ark of the LORD continued in the house of Obededom the Gittite three months: and the LORD blessed Obededom, and all his household (2 Samuel 6:3-11)."

The foregoing Scriptures are a historic record of the attempt to bring the Ark of Gods presence to the "Mount Zion" upon a man-made vehicle, instead of Bearing it upon the Shoulders of the Priesthood, as God had commanded it to be. We find that there are Principles revealed here which closely parallel the actions of certain churchmen in the early part of the 1900's; between the years of 1910 to 1914 the great majority of all the mainline "Pentecostal Denominations" were formed. The formation of these organizations resulted in the spiritual "Death" of many priests like UZZA (meaning Jehovah is Mighty) who attempted to "Help" the Spirit in the shakings which were taking place in the Pentecostal World of that time. It is interesting to note that the famous "Azusa Street Revival" (or, the "As UZZA" Street Revival) lasted for only about 3 ½ years, from mid-1906 until 1910. The result of all this "Breach" was, that the Ark became "Parked," so to speak, in the house of Obed-Edom (meaning Servant of ADAM, or, the Flesh). It has been there now, in the nominal camp for 90 years (or three full months of prophetic "Days" See Ezek 4:6 etc.); and truly you must say God has "Blessed" their house..

In the early hours of Feb. 15th, I had a vision, in which I saw the priests going into an old building of some sort, and carefully wiping off all the grit and grime which had settled upon the "Ark of God;" You wouldn't believe how that "Beaten Gold" shined when they got through. I saw them take down the wooden poles (or "Stays) and gently place them through the rings on the sides of the Ark, and putting it upon their shoulders, they began to march with it, bringing it up the road leading to "Mount Zion," and the "Tabernacle of David." Get ready, saints, things are about to start happening very soon (and they already are) that will manifest that God has moved from one dimension into another.. This is the signal and an open invitation for His Sons to arise and follow Him, in like manner. From Robert Burgess [email protected]

End Time Vision
by Daisy Osborn

"I lay sleepless and horrified, greatly vexed in the Spirit. The Lord visited and showed me things that will shortly come to pass. The JUDGMENT and WRATH of God will soon bring disaster and havoc to the world we live in. The DIE is CAST. God's clock is set. TIME is running out.

'In a VISION' I saw: the face of the earth and the changing of the shape of America. It was drastically altered and reduced in size through terrible disasters. Hunger and suffering were every- where. The devastation caused by volcanic eruptions and fires were widespread and horrifying during this terrible holocaust.

I saw Christians clustering together from all walks of life and many church affiliations. They did not care about their sectarian doctrines. The tie that bound them in their desperate hour, was their common faith in Christ. They clung together as though their survival depended upon each other.

After these terrifying cataclysmic events which the Lord showed me, all the evils of sectarianism and apostasy vanished among the Christians desperate struggle to draw strength from one another. Those who had been lukewarm, cast aside besetting sins, and sought identity with the true believers. Cigarettes, pills, social drinkers, marital cheaters; were repented of and amends were made.

A new sense of values gripped the conscience of Believers. The new morality standard and modern license for laxity, was like a remorseful hangover. Most of the Christians in the "visitation" were amazed that WE "were experiencing" the TERRIBLE DAY OF THE LORD !!! and WE were witnessing His WRATH and JUDGMENT !!!

Many social Christians were ill prepared. Their frivolous, unwatchful, imprudent lives had GAMBLED on Mercy & Grace, which they had thought required no reckoning--- ---EVER !!!

I saw hordes (believers) lost among the religious and Christ Jesus rejecters. As I looked, I saw where mountains were flattened. Believers were FLEEING to the desert to take shelter in caves & rocks. The DESOLATION was so terrible that it seemed NO ONE would be spared, (Luke 21:34-36 KJV) Matthew 24:20-22)

All but a few were full of remorse. Lamentations could be heard every- where. It was heartening to observe that during the FEARSOME DISASTERS-----UNSHAKABLE FAITH held like an ANCHOR among the Christians. They knew they would SOON see the SON coming in the clouds of heaven and with Power & Glory!
