In Communion one day, as I ate the ‘bread of Jesus flesh’ the eyes of my spirit were opened and I saw a very small library reading room. It was in the shape of an octagon with dark wooden shelves and maybe 10 feet of floor space.
It was me and Jesus standing together. Light filtered in from windows up toward the ceiling.
On the opposite side of the room one wall panel opened up to a narrow hallway that led to some wooden steps that went “up”. A shaft of light came from the top of the steps like the sun shining in through a window.
Almost immediately I saw a cone shaped scroll flying down the steps, through the hall to where we were in the study. By the time it arrived the room had grown in size and the scroll was larger too. The scroll hovered for a moment above us and then began to unfurl.
As it did, a person dropped from the scroll and when I looked, standing and smiling kindly was the Holy Mother. Mary was standing next to Her Son Jesus and facing me.
Up until now, after about two years of daily Communion, anyone else who showed up when I met with the Lord was part of what the Lord was sharing with me as par of a scene. In this case Mary came personally to see me!
Jesus was smiling (kind of like a big brother would when Mom was in the room) as if to say, 'How about this?'
I was like, “Well, here we go! There’s no turning back now!”
When my eyes met the eyes of Mother Mary I could feel a flush of heaven’s peace within me and then Mary said to me, “Bob, be bold.”
She was calm, loving, kind and though she spoke with a small grin I knew she was giving me Motherly advice from heaven.
Camille and I took the cup of the wine of His blood and drank in His life and love. Immediately I looked at the Lord Jesus, He nodded approvingly. I thought "Okay, Lord!" I felt so privileged but a little trepidatious. The love of Jesus and His Mother won and my faith was reassured. In an instant 40 years of speculation, doubt and 'dogma' were replaced with the reality that comes from the presence of Jesus
Occasional ‘flying scroll’ encounters have happened since then, but this was like a baptism. It was very profound to me. A personal relationship with Jesus is just that but when a relationship grows strong enough Jesus likes to introduce others to me that play a part in His work of intercession. Today I begin to follow Holy Mother’s motherly advice by writing this blog. My first step outside the box to Be Bold! I sense Mother Mary and Jesus smiling at my attempt! Sweet.
Sitting at Table with Jesus is my passion. In His presence is fullness of joy and everlasting life. I share here with you only what Jesus shares with me. My heavenly account is overflowing with eternal wealth and I can't spend it fast enough and few there be that are looking for that wealth.
