Romans 12:2 instructs us to be transformed by the renewing of our minds. The Amplified Bible says, “be transformed (changed) by the [entire] renewal of your mind [by its new ideals and its new attitude]….”

From the beginning, the vision God gave us was the transformation of the nation of the Philippines – one child at a time. Through that vision, God has touched the lives of hundreds of children, youth and their families in the past 13 years. Many of you have been part of that through your prayers, your financial support and as sponsors for children. The ministry to the sponsored children and their families will continue. In fact we are expecting a great increase as God will give us thousands more children in many more locations across the Philippines.

Now, beyond that ministry of sponsoring children, God has spoken concerning a “New and Bigger Vision” to transform the nation. We invite you to join us and “Think Big, Believe Big and Act Big.”

God has said this is the time for raising up “Partners for Transformation.” Many of today’s prophets are saying a great revival is coming to Asia. The Philippines will be part of a great transformation in Asia. It is time to prepare a new generation.

We are asking you to consider being a “Partner for Transformation.” The vision is a three-part vision. It includes what we do now with the education and disciple-making of poor children. But these words from the apostle Paul speak to us today: “… he (Paul) withdrew from them and took away the disciples, reasoning daily in the school of Tyrannus. This took place for two years, so that all who lived in Asia heard the word of the Lord, both Jews and Greeks.” (Acts 19:9-10 NASB). God wants to do this again in Asia, including the Philippines.

The elements of this “New and Bigger Vision to Transform a Whole Nation” are 3-fold: 1) Homes for orphans and widows, 2) centers for training in computers and technology and 3) centers for improved and comprehensive food distribution with instruction in healthy nutrition. Much more can be said about each of these elements and will be expounded upon in the weeks ahead.

In Luke 5, Jesus instructed Simon (Peter) to cast his net. When he did, the catch was too much for him to handle. It was sinking his boat. Scripture tells us he called his “partners” to come and help bring in the “big catch.” He then told them that from then on they would be fishing for men. We are calling to you. We need your partnership because of the massive catch and we have just begun to fish these plentiful waters of the Philippines.

We anticipate a need for $100,000 for start-up of the first 3 elements: 1) the first home for widows and orphans ($50,000), 2) the first center for training in computers and technology ($25,000) and 3) the first center for food distribution and training in healthy nutrition ($25,000).

We are asking you to seek the Lord about this new and bigger vision. Ask if He would have you be part of it and respond as He leads you. “Think Big, Believe Big and Act Big.”

RAS’ DREAM THE NIGHT OF May 16:  I dreamed a triple segment dream last night.  It is the first time that has ever happened.  God has impressed upon me the significance, importance and prophetic impact of this dream:

I dreamed in the first segment that there were spheres or balls of small bee-like attacking insects coming at me.  There were many bees in each ball.  One would escape the ball and fly towards me.  Then the ball would close ranks and return to a tight sphere.  This startled me.  At first, this scene seemed harmless but then I realized it could become catastrophic.

In the second segment, the ball was reinforced by many other balls of bees, just like the first one.  After a while, the third segment displayed the sky full of the balls of bees.

Reference was made in my May 17 BLOG to the Japan earthquake and tsunami, the Iran missile sights in our neighbor Venezuela, Columbia.  We also mention Iran swapping rocket technologies with North Korea.

Nothing was mentioned about anything in that post applying to Ras personally.  Neither was then mentioned in the dream that the bee flying toward Ras ever actually stung him.  But there are messages to Ras within the dream.

Today, I want to share the interpretations of this dream by my wife Bev and then my comments on all the dream interpretations (read the posts on the BLOG with interpretations of this dream), including Bev’s.

Bev’s Interpretation:  RAS’ BEE DREAM

I have studied dreams and interpretation for a number of years and taught on the subject several times.  My main understanding of dreams is what God has taught me as I have written down my dreams and sought Him for the interpretation.  I use the following Scripture as the basis for all dream interpretation:

Genesis 40:8 (NASB) Then they said to him, “We have had a dream and there is no one to interpret it.” Then Joseph said to them, “Do not interpretations belong to God? Tell it to me, please.”

As the Scriptures say, interpretations come from God.  Tell it.  I even speak my own dreams to myself out loud.   Often the interpretation comes as I am speaking the dream aloud.   Or I may go to someone for counsel and tell the dream and then the interpretation comes.  But the correct interpretation always comes by way of God.

Most all dreams have meaning that is personal to the one dreaming, likewise so do the symbols.  Dream symbols do not mean the same to every person.  Symbols mean different things to different people, i.e. to a bee keeper, a ball of flying bees may mean something altogether different than to the average person.  Some symbols tend to be universal, but only for the purpose of spring boarding one into a specific interpretation.  Only God knows completely the deep interworking of the subconscious minds of people.

A dream usually has to do with what the dreamer is going through at that particular time.  Even if it is a prophetic dream it is usually spurred by something happening in the present knowledge of the dreamer.

I would say one’s dreams are almost 99.44 percent about themselves.  I know of some hard stories of things people have gone through because they thought a dream was about the person they dreamed.  In reality, a dream is about the personality traits of the dreamer that is represented by the traits seen in a person in the dream.

God wants to speak to the dreamer whether it is about something personal or has a broader interpretation of the prophetic.  Some times with me it has been both.

Now to the interpretation of Ras’s dream.  I have the advantage of him telling me the dream and I just asked him to tell it to me again.

The dream was in three segments.  Look again at it (see above).

Bees represent problems or fears, not gargantuan problems or fears, as if there were bears or tigers or lions swarming around him, but nevertheless problems that could sting.   But since some flew at him they are threatening to sting or irritating him by coming near.   In the dream, the number of bees grew increasingly larger.  Notice none of the bees stung Ras.  So this is more a warning or an irritant.

I have another advantage in interpretation in that I know he was going though some personal problems with some of his relatives having illnesses that he was unaware of until he was called.  As he learned more, bigger problems emerged, and there was even one that resulted in death.  There was a possible problem in the ministry with something to be worked out with one of our pastors, but again it wasn’t major.

Now on to the prophetic.  When we were in Japan a few years ago a missionary told us that the country of Japan was called a swarm of bees by some other Asian countries.  I believe that meant they were like bees in starting wars.  We heard something like buzzing bees when they made decisions.  They seem to make decisions better as a group than as individuals.  We were told they are taught the group as a whole is more important than the individual.  If you remember, there was no looting during the recent earthquakes and resulting tsunami.  They saw the nation as a whole in trouble.

I “googled” about the Japanese being called bees and found an article in LIFE MAGAZINE, August 16, 1943 that referred to the Japanese Army being compared to a swarm of bees.  Another reference to bees refers to a hornet the size of a bird that is native to Japan.

There were many natural disasters and much political unrest among nations going on in the world when Ras had this dream.  It seems the world was being attacked by swarms of bees.  The bees represent fears and problems that, at first seem to be localized in one place.  At first it seems these problems do not affect the rest of the world.   But they are increasing and will eventually cause prices in food, clothing, gasoline, homes, and all goods to increase.  I noticed the 1943 LIFE MAGAZINE issue cost was 10 cents and for a year’s subscription was $4.50.

In Israel it is hard to keep up with the bees swarming around them.  They are surrounded by many swarms of bees.

These swarms of bees in other parts of the world may not be affecting us personally and dramatically now, but they soon will affect us all.  Swarms of bees seem to be multiplying all over the world.  Thus we have our call to intercessory prayer.  We are all connected.  The Japanese understand the connectedness of each other.  Often those of us in western culture do not understand this.

Whether we are going through something on a personal level, national level or world level, let us be diligent about the call to prayer.

Ras’ Interpretation/Applications:  Truly, I have gained from reading each of your posts seeking to interpret or at least to comment on the dream.  Thank you so much for participating via your prayers and posts.

Each and every one of you have blessed me with your comments.

Since Bev knows me and my situation better than anyone, since we have been married 54 years on June 15 of this year, she had a very good interpretation.  I am grateful to her and all of you!

The dream is a call to get on the wall, standing in the gap for what God puts on our hearts.  I believe God is calling us to allow our hearts to be connected.  For those who answer the call, our weapons will be media (one reason I am publishing this BLOG), education, acts of mercy and kindness, spiritual warfare, support for our military and foreign relations and so many more.

Each of us is called, being called or will be called very soon to get on the wall and stand in the gap.  The Lord wants me to prophesy this word again to you.  Read it slowly and prayerfully.  Take action and become proactive:

May 21, 2011.  The Lord saves the best wine to serve last.  The new wine will be expended and then comes the very best of the vats.  I always save the best to be served last.  You yourself are that best wine.  I have called, anointed and appointed many.  Much has been accomplished for the sake of My kingdom.  Like My servant Paul, your destiny will drastically change for the better as it relates to My Kingdom.  Things you have already seen are awesome.  But the road ahead will be filled with profound wonder and power.  As this unfolds for you, never back away.  Instead, face each new challenge with courage and confidence. You have been chosen for this hour.  A new and higher level of anointing awaits you.  Therefore, humble yourself and tune your ears to My voice and your eyes to see what I have arranged for you to do.  I am with you always.

Acts 22:10 (GW) “Then I asked, ‘What do you want me to do, Lord?’  “The Lord told me, ‘Get up!  Go into the city of Damascus, and you’ll be told everything I’ve arranged for you to do.'”  Ras Robinson.  

Please post your prayers on this BLOG.  Your post may bring the light that someone else needs to have a spiritual or physical breakthrough.

Thank you for your participation and God bless you.

JapanThe Lord Jesus said that in the last days….

“there will be great earthquakes, and in various places plagues and famines; and there will be terrors and great signs from heaven….There will be signs in sun and moon and stars, and on the earth dismay among nations, in perplexity at the roaring of the sea and the waves, men fainting from fear and the expectation of the things which are coming upon the world; for the powers of the heavens will be shaken.” Luke 21:11, 25-26

“For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now.” Romans 8:22

APOCALYPTIC EARTHQUAKE, TSUNAMI HIT JAPAN: Nuclear power plant explodes    Posted: March 11, 2011 – Verses above quoted from this important must read page by Joel C. Rosenberg

 TIMELINE

Friday – 3-11-11: 

  • Japan is located along the Pacific “ring of fire,” an area of high seismic and volcanic activity stretching from New Zealand in the South Pacific up through Japan, across to Alaska and down the west coasts of North and South America.
  • The Japan quake was “hundreds of times larger” than the 2010 quake that ravaged Haiti, and is ranked as the 4th largest quake since 1900.
  • The Japanese quake was of similar strength to the 2004 earthquake in Indonesia that triggered a tsunami that killed over 166,000 people in more than a dozen countries around the Indian Ocean.
  • The 9.0 Richter scale earthquake, shifted the earth’s crust eight feet (2.4 meters) along the coast of Japan, and shifted the planet on its axis by nearly 6 inches (15.5 centimeters).
  • 33 foot waves (10 meters) high tsunami in Fukushima Prefecture on Friday, causing the formation of 30-foot walls of water that swept across rice fields, engulfed entire towns, dragged houses onto highways, and tossed cars and boats like toys. Some waves reached six miles (10 kilometers) inland in Miyagi Prefecture on Japan’s east coast.
  • Click here to see the live video of the tsunami wave hitting the coast and sweeping away an entire city in the Fukushima Prefecture.
  • Click here to read a firsthand report on the experience of living through the Japan quake.

Saturday – 3-12-11 4:30a: 

  • Hawaii hit by first aftermath of waves from the Japan tsunami.
  • The Fukushima Daiichi plant, north of Tokyo is leaking radiation and wind is blowing it further north above Tokyo – with radiation leak in 1 of 4 reactors due to not having electricity needed to cool down the cores. Worst case scenarios is that people will have risk of cancer from exposure to radiation.
  • Japanese media estimate that at least 1,300 people were killed. (Actual numbers may be closer to 10 times the initial estimate.)

 Monday – 3-13-11 9:30p: 

  • Reactor 3 experiences hydrogen explosion and Reactor 2 has been compromised at the The Fukushima Daiichi plant. Radiation leaks into the atmosphere could be dispersed out as far as Tokyo.

_______________________________

God is moving and shaking us awake, I believe. This morning, I woke up with a start at 4:30a, approximately the same time the Japan tsunami aftermath waves hit Hawaii today, March 12, 2011. Was God signally just me, a lone individual currently in a small town in central Texas? No, I think not. I got on Facebook and others in my circle of acquaintances are also up and writing at about the same time. They, too, have been awakened at this early hour, some with accompanying pain, others not. Those of us who are particularly sensitive to God’s presence sometimes have travailing pain in crisis situations. I woke up with a severe headache – I attribute this to pressure changes in the atmosphere. To those of us familiar with Quantum Physics, everything that moves creates a counterpart opposing reaction. That includes atmospheric pressure changes (i.e. energy) from even the slightest movement of an atom on up to air waves created by sonic booms. Taken to infinity that means that in the spiritual realm, if we are awakened abruptly or startled it just might be the presence of God moving to gently nudge us into his realm. He does, after all, control all vibrations on the earth, including the earthquakes and the tsunamis. Take note, he may be giving us advance notice of the end of time. 

Ras recently commented along these lines:

“Yes, these are the end times.  But you have been in the end times since the first century of Christianity.  People and pundits have played the term end times to suit their own purposes.  I say unto you, be ready at all times.  I still control the times and seasons.  Be very watchful and pray to the Lord your God.  He will hear from Heaven.  …. I am still Lord over all things.  Let your heart be at peace.”

The Lord warns us that “The heavens and the earth will shake from all points from the east to the west and the north to the south.” This gives me pause to think about the events of late. I ask myself, “Where is Japan in relation to where I am in Texas?” It is due east of my current location. The tsunami aftermath is traversing the globe right now along the earth’s longitudinal axis from the east to the west hitting the western shores of the US and Hawaii as I write this. The nuclear radiation, as a result of the Japanese Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant explosion, is being picked up by the Pacific jet stream and could travel onwards to the Western Seaboard of the United States. In addition, the entire earth’s axis has shifted 6 inches from the massive earthquake in Japan. It is mind-boggling to think of the energy it takes to move that amount of mass. How much more “shaking” do we, the people, need in order for God to get our attention? 

A very wise, 85 year old friend of mine recently said to me that if we are true and faithful Christians, we will be saved in the end times, BEFORE the final earthly catastrophe’s hit. How will we know when and how this is going to happen? We will know because we will not feel pain, but only the joy and peace because God will have lifted us to heaven first. Unlike the non-believers left here the earth (if the planet still exists) where hell will reside.  Because He will give us that abrupt nudge, or push, that will cause us to come to attention. It may be a spit second, or a nanosecond, before “it” happens, but nonetheless the signal will come. So do not worry, do not fret, be at peace and be at rest. All is well. All is well.

All this is evidence that God’s judgment is right, and as a result you will be counted worthy of the kingdom of God, for which you are suffering. God is just: He will pay back trouble to those who trouble you and give relief to you who are troubled, and to us as well. This will happen when the Lord Jesus is revealed from heaven in blazing fire with his powerful angels.  He will punish those who do not know God and do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus. They will be punished with everlasting destruction and shut out from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of his might on the day he comes to be glorified in his holy people and to be marveled at among all those who have believed. 2 Thessalonians 1:5-10

 

We need your prayers of intercession right now, please!

Last night, March 4, 2011, what our missions team saw was a contrast of Hell and Heaven.  Some of FCM’s sponsored children are living in unbelievable conditions at a garbage dumpsite in the Philippines.

First, the Hell part:  Bev arrived at the dumpsite before me.  I arrived about two hours later to find my wife with panic in her eyes and face.  She said, “We have been in Hell!”  Upon my inquiry, she explained that what she and the rest of our team saw on this massive dumpsite was beyond disgusting.  Bev was weeping almost uncontrollably.  She does not normally weep about much of anything, ever.

Local and very effective Pastor Rudy manages the education and Christian training of 93 of FCM’s sponsored students.  I asked him to take me on the same tour Bev had made of the dumpsite.  I was made sick at my stomach at the smells and sights.  Huge pigs were routing in the garbage right along beside our children and some adults.  One mother pig was said to weigh nearly 400 pounds.  It is forbidden to sell pigs from the dumpsite in Iligan City because of the extreme filth they ingest.  We want to tell you more about this at a later time.

Second, the Heaven part.  That same night, those sponsored kids led a night of worship at the pole barn structure they call their church and community center.  These same kids were now cleaned up, had on fresh clothes and were ready to worship.

All those who lead the service were children on the dumpsite trained by Pastor Rudy and his local church team. There was a praise leader, praise team, dance troupe, many testimonies from the children about how they, scripture quotation (one girl quoted all of Psalm 91.  Another girl quoted some other long scripture passage. One little girl quoted all the books of the Bible in rapid fire.  And they had a designated preacher who was about 11 years old.

We shouted, praised and shed many, many tears, kids and adults alike.  It was like a heavenly experience.

Can you help us?  Consider becoming a part of the FCM team for the poorest of the poor children.  They are being given both a secular and biblical education.

A great need right now is for food.  Can you help us feed these children so that they can learn in school?

Phillipines, Thailand, North Korea, South Korea and Japan

Prayer for the Nations of Asia and The Pacific Islands

Seek out and ask the Lord to guide you to intercede for Japan, North Korea, South Korea, the Philippines and Thailand.

Many people have asked us, “Just how do I go about interceding on behalf of a country and its people?” We suggest that you follow the Alert.net link to right to view the Country Profile. Alert.net provides a profile for every country that will give a feel for the people and culture. Then review the “News and Alerts” for that country. These two resources will give you a good feel for the pulse of what is going on in and where to focus on specific, pinpoint prayer for the country. For instance, I know fairly little about Thailand. With these two links, I can have a fairly comprehensive idea of what type of intercessory prayer may be needed for that country.

Alertnet is an awesome site! We already have a posted prayer on this blog for Ethiopia that came in right after we posted the Middle East map. This is so great because with just the framework in place, the posts and prayers start to create a life of their own as they transition to a global prayer network! It has been our desire for a long time to see this come to fruition. We hope you will be as blessed by it as we are. God Bless You!
