Tomorrow Today

by Lynette Love

"As One

"The Lord spoke to me saying, "My child, I would like you to see this."

Encounters with the King photograph
Encounters with the King
He showed me a finely crafted drinking glass. In the bottom of it was living, multi-coloured, fragrant oil. As I watched, oil was being poured into the glass and when the two were mixed together they became one. It was impossible to tell the difference between them.

He said to me, "You are like this glass. You are the oil in the bottom. As I pour My oil of the Holy Spirit into the glass they become one. When people look at you, your body (My vessel) becomes transparent, they see not only your beauty but the beauty of the Holy Spirit as well.""

Tomorrow Today is a series of excerpts from books by Lynette Love, who regularly encounters heaven - and Jesus - and Holy Spirit - and Father - now, in this life, today. 

My prayer is that you also might experience Him, and that in your own daily walk you might hear His voice, and see His face, and know His love - now, in this life, today.

Living the Dream

"Two Months of Nerve Pain Healed at Work

"A financial services business owner in Portland Oregon displaced a rib by working out too hard too fast. For two months he was experiencing nerve pain and extreme discomfort with no relief. A team of business leaders prayed for him and he felt things come back into alignment and the pain disappear. Full range of motion was restored and no more nerve pain. He started working out again and reported no pain and increased strength! via Blake Schellenberg, Portland, OR (May, 2014)"

"The City

"The city is set in a beautiful landscape. As I approach the city with an angel, the Lord talks with me. I sense His presence though I do not see Him.

Encounters of Heaven photograph
Encounters of Heaven
At a distance the vast city shines like gold. Light on it radiates like beautiful precious gems. The glory of God is all around and throughout the kingdom. God Himself is there in the city and beyond. Everywhere His life is apparent.

As I approach the gates of solid pearl, I stop and touch the pearl. It is so smooth and thick and the gate's incredibly high. Passing through this gate I notice two tall angels dressed in white, one on either side of the gate, swords in hand, they guard the entrance.

The streets of the city are made of pure transparent gold. I stand on them and see my white robed reflection. I dance to the Lord and catch a sight of myself in the glassy street. Light beams down into the streets and reflects back like mirrors. It is beyond words for beauty...."

Living the Dream

"One step process saved healed delivered:

"Ben was heading home after Friday outreach in Redding. It was 10:30pm and had been a hard evening and he was tired, just wanting to go to bed. As he was driving home he heard voice of God say "Go to the hospital, there is a woman there that urgently needs prayer intervention."

Ben was resistant because of the difficult evening and feeling tired. However he said to the others in his vehicle what God had said and took them with him to the hospital ER. On entering hospital ER he had a mental vision of what the woman looked like but there was no-one fitting that description in the waiting area.

The other members of his team started praying for people but Ben walked outside. It was then he noticed a nurse pushing a woman in through a side door in a wheelchair. She fit the description! He went over to her and asked what was wrong and if he could quickly pray for her. She had extreme abdominal pain and the nurse wanted her immediately in a room with meds. Ben asked if he could come and pray and nurse and patient agreed.

When the woman was all hooked up with IV and the nurse left room Ben asked if woman was from certain apartment complex that he had been visiting and praying for. She responded "Yes." He told her the image and instructions God had said and that God was going to heal her. Ben then put his hand on her head and started to thank God for his love for this woman and that all the pain would leave.

Immediately the woman started yelling (in a man's voice) and manifesting demons. Ben was completely surprised and now worried that this would create a scene in the hospital. Quickly he commanded the demon to leave and it did as required. He then asked the woman if she would like to receive Jesus and she did. Next thing she was filled with the Holy Spirit and started laughing. All the pain was gone. She pulled out her IV, hopped off the bed and walked out. Ben was overwhelmed by the goodness of God… and no longer tired."

"Be Carriers of God's Light

"As I was passing the mirror I looked at myself and thought, "Where have all the years gone?" I thought of my boys who are grown and married.

Encounters with the King photograph
Encounters with the King
The Lord said to me, "Would you like to see yourself as the angels see you?"

"Yes please my Lord, I would like that."

Immediately while still looking at the mirror I see myself shining very brightly, so brightly I could no longer see my physical body, all I saw was light.

"Did you know that light also contains sound, colour, fragrance and life? Not only do My angels see My light that surrounds My people but so do the demons, which causes them to shake with fear and hide." "

Living the Dream

"Ten Years of Back Pain Healed in a Moment 

" "I was raised an athlete I played very competitive softball, basket ball, volleyball and track. When I was 19 years old, somehow bending over I pinched a nerve in my back resulting in Sciatica on the left side. Ever since then my back has gone out completely on numerous occasions to the point that I cant even walk. I have gone to the emergency room numerous times and I pay 50 dollars every other week to go to a chiropractor just so that I can sit or stand and not be in so much pain.

I haven’t been able to play sports since I was 19 or do any sort of athletic activities due to back pain. I recently started working out at the gym and my back has gone from 4-6 pain level which has become the normal, to a 9-10 pain level every day. I have 2 small girls who love to dance and play and I haven’t been able to be that active of a mom.

This morning God Healed me! I am able to bend at the waist and touch my toes! I am sitting, squatting, jumping and standing - things I haven’t done without pain. Even shimming my jeans up hurt! Today I have done all of those without pain! I am sitting here with the biggest smile across my face knowing I am healed and making a list of things I can’t wait to do. Like go running outside!"

Jenna K, Redding, CA Jul, 2013 (team of business people met at the business and prayed 30 second prayer for Jenna, she lifted up her hands, touched her toes and was immediately fully healed. Two years later she still tells this testimony as a life-changing moment). Do it again Jesus!"

Tomorrow Today

by Lynette Love

"(As a child) Received by Jesus

"Jesus stretches out his arms to receive me. As I run into them I discover I'm a small child. He swings me around as if I am His own very special little girl. He puts me on his shoulders and carries me there as he walks along.

Encounters of Heaven photograph
Encounters of Heaven
On the ground again, I look at what I'm wearing. My dress is luminous white and frilly. How I love this lacy party dress with its white sash around my waist. I'm dressed as I always imagined a princess would be. A coronet of tiny white rosebuds encircles my head. I am the King's daughter.

I can hear the eagle calling in the sky and see heaven outstretched before me. It's an awesome place. I experience my dependence on Him as a child again.

I walk beside Him and look up to Him. He seems at least six feet tall. I feel so loved, so secure and I know He is everything.

All I want to do is dance, and so I do. My beautiful dress flows as I dance lovingly to Him. Freedom of movement! - and the sense of pleasure in being dressed as the treasured child of the King. I can't help but love Him. I am holding on to Jesus' hand, and I feel loved."

Tomorrow Today is a series of excerpts from books by Lynette Love, who regularly encounters heaven - and Jesus - and Holy Spirit - and Father - now, in this life, today.

"The Apple Tree

"As I was walking through my garden one morning, I made a comment to the Lord about one of my apple trees.

Encounters with the King photograph
Encounters with the King
"Lord this apple tree is on a lean. I will need to stake it in case it falls."

Jesus replied, "Its roots have not gone down deep enough and when the winds come, it will blow over. It is all leaf and no fruit. It is the same with some of My children; they have not put their roots deep down into the soil of My love and they too bear no fruit and when the winds of life come, they fall." "

Eph 3:16
I pray that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man, that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height... to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.

Living the Dream

"Divine Business:

"Two business revivalists in the insurance industry had a business meeting in New York. One was from the West coast and the other had responsibility for northeast portion of US market. He took over the Manhattan office in 2011. Of the 56 offices in the northeast, Manhattan was the worst. But a year after taking it over, Manhattan became 'office of the year.'

All he did different was “God, I’ve GOT to experience your Kingdom in this office” and would pray each morning before people arrived. The west coast business revivalist had a word for him: “Holy Spirit wants you to know your sleepless nights will stop now.” He began to weep. He had been diagnosed with a condition of a racing heart and the previous three nights hadn’t been able to sleep. Last 5-10mins of their business meeting was spent just praying in their God-language and enjoying the Presence and peace of God. Blake Schellenberg, Portland, OR (April, 2013)"

One of the testimonies was of Jenna who was healed from ten years of excruciating sciatica pain. At the end of the meeting the team got everyone with any pain similar to the testimonies to stand.

Before praying they asked the people to check whether God had already healed them in the atmosphere of His Presence. Sure enough one woman started weeping as she realized the painful sciatica she had since the birth of her child sixteen years ago was completely gone. She walked around and stretched from side to side to show that she could no longer feel any pain. Weeping she was overwhelmed by the love of Jesus. April, 2015

Another person had fractured a part of their shoulder from a cycling accident two months ago. They had X-rays to prove it. When asked to demonstrate the healing they fully rotated their arm/shoulder. Asked what else he could do to test it, he said “a push up.” So next thing he was doing push ups at the front of the service.

Another woman had damaged her cartilage in right knee three years ago. She happily crouched down showing what she ‘couldn’t’ do. She also had repetitive strain injury in her left hand/arm for six months that disappeared. Andy Mason, Guatemala (April, 2015)"

Tomorrow Today

by Lynette Love

"A Little Taste of Jesus Growing Up

"I asked Jesus what it was like to grow up with His family. He said to me with much joy in His voice, "I loved My parents and My brothers and sisters so very much. I was just like any other little boy, I had fun and I played games. I loved telling stories; I told stories of My Father's Kingdom and then we would all dress up as kings and queens.

Don't think that when I changed the water into wine it was the first miracle. No! My mother knew what I could do because when we sat around the dinner table as a family and we didn't have enough to eat, I would thank my Heavenly Father, bless the food and watch it multiply; such fun!"

I could hear the delight in Jesus' voice when he told me this story."

Tomorrow Today is a series of excerpts from books by Lynette Love, who regularly encounters heaven - and Jesus - and Holy Spirit - and Father - now, in this life, today. 

My prayer is that you also might experience Him, and that in your own daily walk you might hear His voice, and see His face, and know His love - now, in this life, today.

Lynette's books and e-books are all available on Amazon.com
