Before suggesting a more detailed explanation, I want to first offer you this follow-up vision on the one I posted on the 25th October in 2022 (full particulars here). If you do not want to follow the link, here’s a short summary of the surroundings in that vision.

Jesus was standing behind a sort of speaker’s desk, overlooking a room before Him that resembled an auditorium in college. He was standing on top of this room which was filled with men and women who were sitting in several rows beneath Him. While Jesus was in their back, so to say, they never turned their heads in His direction. Quite the contrary, like hypnotized they were gazing out of a huge half circle panorama window right in front of them where you could see a beautiful landscape.

These people were Christians who were focused on everything that happened in this world, whether good or bad. The visible world represented their whole realm of concern. And it was also here on earth where they expected to find Him, where they served Him, even eagerly….. but alas, they either did not know Him personally or they could not recognize His actual will for them in their life. – End of (the initial) vision

And here is the more recent part of the vision I just explained.

It was only yesterday that I saw two independent tunnels above this auditorium, too. They opened up toward the right and toward the left behind the lecturer’s pulpit where Jesus stood. Turning my back on the room and the people, I dared a short glance into these dark and lengthy corridors. At that moment a flash of lightning came gushing out of the right tunnel, moving rapidly into the left one. That happened three times in a row. I looked a bit bewildered at Jesus, not understanding what that might mean but I got no explanation yet. Today He told me to catch the lightning with my own hand. Actually, I was afraid to do it. Therefore He took my left hand in His as we were waiting for the next flash. Colliding with our hands, the fourth lightning immediately melted into a warm and liquid light that was trickling down on the ground.

After that Jesus took a black canvas, holding it in the same spot where our hands had been before. The fifth flash of lightning then somehow exploded on the canvas, leaving an interesting imprint on it. At once I was reminded of my husband’s astronomic pictures as there seemed to be countless stars before a black background now.

Our Lord took this painting of sorts and went downstairs on the right side of the auditorium. Leaning this canvas against the huge panorama window, He told me to join Him sitting in a row, too. I felt relieved to be able to spend some time with all my brothers and sisters, seeing that our Lord and God was there right in our midst as well. It was a joyous moment, indeed.  

But then a strange thing happened. Whether out from among the audience or from one of these tunnels I don’t know, a man came rushing downstairs. Dressed in a black suit and a white shirt with no tie, he was evidently sure of himself since he took this canvas in his right hand, immediately starting to explain it to an eagerly listening audience. It appeared to me that he was appropriating this image all to himself!  🙄 But what was really weird to me was the fact that I could not hear ANY of his utterances. I only say his lips moving, however, no sound ever reached my ears.  🤔

The end of the vision left me sad. Jesus told me that these people were able to see me but not to see Him. That explained why no one ever looked into His direction. But they did not look at me or at one another, either. Could this really be the Body of Christ where every member ought to be focused on the Head first? Alas, the audience was hanging on every word this man in front of the panorama window shared with them. He seemed to be the go-to guy to interpret this God-given divine revelation (as stars in the sky represent the heavenly realm) without asking Christ’s Spirit (who was close to him) about the proper approach on how to do it. As I also wondered why I could not hear this man talk at all, Jesus reminded me of the following Scripture, pointing me particularly to the last verse.

“Truly, truly, I say to you, he who does not enter the sheepfold by the door but climbs in by another way, that man is a thief and a robber. But he who enters by the door is the shepherd of the sheep. To him the gatekeeper opens. The sheep hear his voice, and he calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. When he has brought out all his own, he goes before them, and the sheep follow him, for they know his voice. A stranger they will not follow, but they will flee from him, for they do not know the voice of strangers.”  (Jn 10:1-5 ESV)

It appears to me when God has enabled us to hear His voice more clearly so that we can obey Him by following His moment by moment leading, we won’t be prone to listen to other voices which rather point us to themselves. Jesus said,

“My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me.” (Jn 10:27 ESV)

But what can we do, dear brothers and sisters, when we cannot hear His voice that distinctly? There are times when so many different voices besiege us that we get confused about what has come from God, what from man and self, and what actually from the devil. Such a confusion is not a fun condition, as I know myself, yet does it not happen to us repeatedly? How then can we cut through this veil of blurriness to clearly recognize The Truth again?

We know that God is a God of order while Satan is the author of confusion. When we have listened to the wrong voices for a certain time, we might tend to forget that God has given us… a sound mind (cf. 2 Tim 1:7 KJV). I do not want to oversimplify the solution, yet I believe that the devil makes things more complicated than they really are. Since Jesus Christ has been made our wisdom from God (1 Cor 1:30), the door to enter into God’s wisdom on all things seems to be open for every human being for it is written,

“If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.” (Js 1:5 KJV)

Withdrawing from other people and their distracting voices, praying to God silently when nobody watches (cf. Mt 6:18) and asking for HIS wisdom and clarity is a method that might help us. It is even biblical.

“Be still and know that I AM God…. (Ps 46:10 ESV)

“Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for Him” (Ps 37:7 ESV)

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths. Be not wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord, and turn away from evil.” (Prv 3:5-7 ESV)
