The story about God and His message can be told in many ways and through many different parables. But are any of them really false as long as the moral of the story is the same? Who is to say "this or that" is true when, in the end, our own conscience can only testify to what we have actually seen and heard for ourselves?? The testimony most of us give, is not always our own. In fact, majority of the testimonies people offer, are ones that have been passed down from one generation to another. This causes people to think "Why aren't there testimonies now?" when in fact, miracles happen everyday, all around us.

I can recount the stories from the bible in my sleep and I can even remember names that were maybe used once or twice throughout the whole bible (which, with my "not so keen" sense of memory is an absolute miracle, by the way). But my conscience cannot testify to what I have not learned from God Himself, and I can only return to Him the Testimony of the things He has confirmed to me as being True, including every parable He has given to me via dreams and various stories He gathers in my mind. I cannot rely on the testimonies of dreams nor stories that God has not confirmed that He gave to me, because for all I know, it could be just my mind making up stories of its own; and I also cannot rely on the testimonies of others either, without confirmation. 

Confirmation is such an important thing. It is the only thing that makes a Testimony valid. Without confirmation, a testimony will always be an uncertainty to the conscience of the heart. And whether you force or convince yourself you believe something told to you is true, your heart can do nothing but tell God what it knows- and the only thing it knows is what it has seen and heard for itself. Testimonials are for the sole purpose to show God that His Word has not return to Him empty but has been received by someone. It is not for the sole purpose to cause others to believe in God, but more so, motivate them to believe and gain testimonies of their own- and when they do, God's Word received from one person to another, also doesn't return to Him empty.

When I oversee the earth, there are many Christian denominations that label themselves with a name that sums up only a single Testimony that only makes up a fragment of God's Word. They don't realize that their title holds more truth, than the clouded testimonies they give concerning that title. For instance, a Christian sect's name, "Jehovah's Witnesses", tells people they must be a witness of God, which is true, but they take this concept out of context. "Baptists" tells people they must be baptized, which is true, but they also take it out of context. There are many sects that label themselves with various parts of God's message, but it is not complete unless all these fragments of teachings, such as "become a witness", "be baptized", ect, come together, in order to complete God's Word. In the end, all it seems is that when Christianity divided into various sects, people took only the parts of the message they wanted and practiced that single one and even took it out of context. But a wise man puts the entire Word into practice and does not turn God's Word into their own.

When I had a dream of walking into a pyramid, in the center of it was a large open area and it was surrounded by many small chambers or rooms all around it. The Catholics occupied the open center while the other Christian sects occupied the rooms to the left and the Jewish sects occupied the chambers to the right. This was not God telling me that He favored one religion or sect over another. It was a message concerning His Word. He was showing me the pattern or the design of His message as a WHOLE. God tells me that I can't just learn one part of His message without the other and that, I had to go here and there to gather all of the pieces of His knowledge in order to see the entire message. 

The reason why Catholicism was placed in the center of the pyramid was not because God was saying this sect was the most important or the birth of all other religions (especially since it was rather, rooted from Judaism). The word "Catholic" means "Universal" and the chambers around it symbolized the completion of God's Word. And the reason why Jewish sects occupied the chambers on one side while the Christian sects occupied the chambers on the other, was because God was telling me, I could not understand His message unless I gathered both the "latter" and the "former" pieces. 

So, here I am, still learning and still gathering. But if I die today, I am confident that my heart will give acceptable Testimonies to God because I have many that have been confirmed. I am like a woman God has dressed with earings and a necklace of pearls, like in several dreams He gave to me. Each pearl represents a Word and a string of pearls symbolizes how it comes together to reveal one Great Message. When I Testify the deeds of the Holy Spirit, my conscience supports me because I have been a witness to many of His works and this is why my heart refuses to let Him go.
