I kept thinking of Isaiah.

A message of hope for his people
Were I live if you go up the mountains behind us there is a tremendous view, as you look down and around you can see the main road running through the village. You can see small vehicles moving along the village road , beyond that there is the main A55 road that run’s along the coast, then beyond that you can see the beach with the Menia straits from left to right.
Beyond that the Isle of Anglesey with Puffin island to the right and in between lies the light house, then on again the Irish sea, wonderful.
While I was writing my last blog on dreams, I kept thinking of Isaiah, then my friend came to visit, yes I have friends. And guess what he brought me the scripture I needed. And when I read it, wow, that’s it. You cannot write a story like Tick, Tock, stand in the holy place Abba without having some apprehension and fear for the future. My friend is over 90 years old, and he began to tell me how his Grandma had taught him how to survive by finding food from the land, while the ground was covered in snow for 6 months of the year, and there was no food available, this was just after the first World war.
I shared the story how I went to a Friday meeting a couple of years back in my last blog, that night I had a dream, this being the second.
It was a simple dream, in the dream I was riding my motor bike up and down a bridle path that ran next to the Church, how I did enjoy riding up and down that path way.
The night I posted my blog about “standing in the holy place” I had the third dream, I can say what a dream that was! In the dream I found myself on a high mountain and I remember saying as I looked around, this is like home. You could see there was life going on down on the village road, but as I looked around on the mountain it was a very rugged place and there was a greater beauty about the place than home. As I looked to the left I could see a building on the mountain slightly down in a valley, and were I was, the men who were with me, had built a platform of scaffolding to be able to go right to the edge of the mountain. And as I looked over the edge it was so high there was a wow as you looked over the side almost as if the ground would come up to meet you! Then the men that were there with me lifted my motor bike by its front wheel on to the platform they had built so I could ride it.
Still in the dream, we were travelling over the mountain, I was sat next to a man and said what sort of vehicle is this! It was travelling so fast over the rough ground, we went into a gully I thought we were going to hit the rock face in front of us , but we didn’t. We arrived at our destination, I could see buildings to the left were a man was preparing celebration lights. The man who had sat with me went to him, and then over to people on the right, sitting at tables and greeted them. I then began to wake I wanted to stay, but I couldn’t, I woke.
Isa 65:1 I am sought of them that asked not for me; I am found of them that sought me not: I said, Behold me, behold me, unto a nation that was not called by my name.
Isa 65:2 I have spread out my hands all the day unto a rebellious people, which walketh in a way that was not good, after their own thoughts;
Isa 65:3 A people that provoketh me to anger continually to my face; that sacrificeth in gardens, and burneth incense upon altars of brick;
Isa 65:4 Which remain among the graves, and lodge in the monuments, which eat swine’s flesh, and broth of abominable things is in their vessels;
Isa 65:5 Which say, Stand by thyself, come not near to me; for I am holier than thou. These are a smoke in my nose, a fire that burneth all the day.
Isa 65:6 Behold, it is written before me: I will not keep silence, but will recompense, even recompense into their bosom,
Isa 65:7 Your iniquities, and the iniquities of your fathers together, saith the LORD, which have burned incense upon the mountains, and blasphemed me upon the hills: therefore will I measure their former work into their bosom.
Isa 65:8 Thus saith the LORD, As the new wine is found in the cluster, and one saith, Destroy it not; for a blessing is in it: so will I do for my servants’ sakes, that I may not destroy them all.

Isa 65:12 Therefore will I number you to the sword, and ye shall all bow down to the slaughter: because when I called, ye did not answer; when I spake, ye did not hear; but did evil before mine eyes, and did choose that wherein I delighted not.
Isa 65:13 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD, Behold, my servants shall eat, but ye shall be hungry: behold, my servants shall drink, but ye shall be thirsty: behold, my servants shall rejoice, but ye shall be ashamed:

Isa 65:15 And ye shall leave your name for a curse unto my chosen: for the Lord GOD shall slay thee, and call his servants by another name:
Isa 65:16 That he who blesseth himself in the earth shall bless himself in the God of truth; and he that sweareth in the earth shall swear by the God of truth; because the former troubles are forgotten, and because they are hid from mine eyes.
Isa 65:17 For, behold, I create new heavens and a new earth: and the former shall not be remembered, nor come into mind.
Isa 65:18 But be ye glad and rejoice for ever in that which I create: for, behold, I create Jerusalem a rejoicing, and her people a joy.

Isa 65:21 And they shall build houses, and inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards, and eat the fruit of them.

Isa 65:23 They shall not labour in vain, nor bring forth for trouble; for they are the seed of the blessed of the LORD, and their offspring with them.
Isa 65:24 And it shall come to pass, that before they call, I will answer; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear.
Isa 65:25 The wolf and the lamb shall feed together, and the lion shall eat straw like the bullock: and dust shall be the serpent’s meat. They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain, saith the LORD.
