God's Divine Roadmap

Recently in a dream I was handed two paperback books. I did not see the name of the first one, but the price was marked $4. As the young man handed me the other larger one, he marked the price on its cover in red ink: $75. This book's title was AAA Road Atlas. I took the AAA Atlas and opened it, showing the middle pages to the audience. Then I said "I have a GPS, and it's good, but this book is always faithful. It has every detail we need!"

The AAA (American Automobile Association) was founded 1902, when, "in response to a lack of roads and highways suitable for automobiles, nine individual motor clubs with a total of 1,500 members banded together to form the Triple-A."

I believe the AAA Atlas I was given represents the Bible. It is a roadmap that gives us divine direction for every aspect of our lives. Automobiles speak of our motivation, and it's time the American Church gets motivated and comes together in agreement (association). The Church has strayed from the straight and narrow highway of holiness (see Isaiah 35), and this roadmap will get us back on course.

Set up for yourselves highway markers [back to Canaan], make for yourselves guideposts; turn your thoughts and attention to the way by which you went [into exile]. Retrace your steps, O Virgin Israel, return to these your cities. Jeremiah 31:21 AMP

AAA road maps were first published in 1905 to assist motorists on their cross country travels. I find it interesting that the Azusa Street Revival began April 14, 1906. The AAA provided clear mapping for travel by automobile in the early turn of the century. It was a timing of the Church being awakened by the outpouring of the Holy Spirit and manifestation of speaking in tongues. People began to experience a second Pentecost. As the outpouring exploded at Azusa Street, people were filled with the Holy Spirit and took this precious gift home to their cities and nations.

World Atlas

The Church lost its vision of the harvest to the world and now the vision is being restored. The world atlas will now show the Church the right road to follow. They will raise up harvesters for the harvest to go into all the world and make disciples of all nations. These disciples will be fearless as they demonstrate the great commission, because these are the conditions of the harvest according to Matthew 10:7-8:

"And as you go, preach, saying, 'The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand.' Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out demons. Freely you have received, freely give."

$75

I feel there's a great significance to the $75 marked in red on this road atlas cover. In my death experience of 1975, the Lord sent me back for world harvest and the return of the glory. I was told by the Lord Jesus that I would live to see one billion souls come into the Kingdom in one great harvest. I would also see the return of God's glory. I believe that's why the atlas was marked $75. It's time for the promises from 1975 to begin. I believe the fact it was marked in red means it's a red-letter day. All the words Jesus spoke are alive and full of demonstration power.

Also in Psalm 75, God deals with the wicked and self-promotion but exalts the humble. This is the year that God's justice and righteousness are coming forth in His people. Justice is morality and righteousness is total obedience to the will of the Father in thought, purpose and action (see Romans 6:18 AMP).

We have a chance to embrace God's divine roadmap. Let's take advantage of this opportunity and watch as the Church gets back on track and enters into the greater works that were promised in John 14:12. This was a red-letter day!
