Posts Tagged ‘Harry s truman’

I think it has been several years since I have written anything new on my blog. It feels a bit odd to be sitting back down and fumbling around with my thoughts but here it goes. The first week of February 2014 I had a dream that had a setting in the deep south and I knew the year was 1949.

Old SKELLY STATION

In the dream I was 13 years old. I was with a group traveling across the country in a school bus. The bus came to a stop at the edge of a small town. I was asked to get out of the bus and walk into town and find out where we were. I realized in the dream it was Sunday and was under the Blue Law meaning business’s could not be open on Sunday and all of them were closed. I walked down the road that spiraled down into a valley. I came across a Skelly gas station. It was closed, but the door was cracked open so I peaked in, widening the gap of the door. Inside were about 15 African American men ranging in age from 15 to 90. I startled them as they were having a bible study. I then realized why there was no one visible in town, they were all in church. Then I realized why the men were meeting in the gas station, They were not welcome in any churches in that town. Instantly I saw they were afraid I was going to disclose their location. I began to back out of the doorway, when a heard a song about the name of Jesus in my head. It was not a known song, but seemed fresh like God had just given it to me. I began to sing it and and all of the men began to sing with me. I thought it was the most beautiful sound I had every heard. All of the sudden all the colors became alive even the oil cans had light shinning out of them. We all knew the Lord was in the room with us and the dream ended. The dream stayed with me all week as pondered it and wished I could remember the words to the song.

About a week later I had another dream and again I was 13 years old and the year was the same, 1949. This dream began with me in the back of a brand new red 1949 Chevrolet pickup truck. I was in the back of the truck leaning over the cab with the wind in my face as we were rolling down Winner Road in Independence Missouri. I began to motion to stop the truck and to let me inside. The driver pulled over and I hopped out and climbed inside. In the seat was a boy about the same age as me in the dream. Then I looked over at the driver, at 1st I thought it was my grand father George Holmes then with a closer look my eyes bugged out, it was “Harry S Truman.”  I was shocked and sit in amazement. The boy looked out the window and saw a Ben Franklin s Five and Dime store. He said hey can you let me out I need to stop and get some candy. Harry pulled over and out jumped the boy. As he jumped out He noticed Chevrolet written on the fender of the truck then glanced at the President who had a red hat on matching the color of the red truck and said in big letters Chevrolet. He asked Harry whats with the hat? He laughed and said I just like Chevrolet. Off went the boy to buy His candy. A deep stare came from the president as he questioned me, “what did you think about that?” I thought about it for a minute and said ” The boy has the audience of the president of the United States and wasted His question on a hat!” The president laughed at me then after a pause he said “so what’s your question?”  Again I pondered the question and after a minute I said “How long is the ride?” Harry grinned and with a wink He said, “Now that’s the right question”

Instantly I was awake and thinking wow that is the 2nd dream in two weeks that took place in the  year 1949 and I was 13 years old in both. All that week I wondered If there was something to the dreams. I know that Harry S Truman started His 2nd term in 1949 and that the previous year he had helped with  the start of the new nation of Israel. I realize that many Christians think that started a time countdown to the 2nd coming of Jesus Christ. I also had previously met Harry S Truman’s niece Mary Gracey Truman. She had told me that Her uncle believed that His destiny had been planned by God to purposes tied to Israel. Interesting that in both dreams I was 13 the age when a Jewish boy becomes a man. Anyway I did not make to much about it but daily the dreams replayed in my head.

Another week passed and I woke at 4:44 from a dream about the other 2 dreams. Now I am sitting up in bed, what is with all this? I still don’t know but is starting to make me wonder if something is really happening either something internal I need to work through or something a bit more weird.

This  3rd dream took place at a large round table. Everyone was older like in their 90’s and all seated around the table. They were discussing world events and time lines. There were baskets of grapes and bottles of wine intermingled. I thought wow this is the Prophet Joel’s place. I dared not open my mouth but had a feeling there were both terrible things and wonderful things being planned. I only heard judgment being mentioned but kept waiting for the conversation to turn to blessings but did not. Then the one in charge spoke to me. He had long white hair and beard and very serious. He said to me its coming and they are all doing their own agenda’s and will not understand anything that is about to happen. You must tell Regina Shank so She can explain to them what has happened after the fact. It will be healing salve to many. I had no time to reply or ask questions tough I had many. I was awake and wide awake at that.

A week later I did talk to Regina by phone and She asked me to write the dream down. She has been the prayer coordinator for the state of Missouri for several national and International prayer groups fr years and is highly respected.  I decided I would put the dream up here and see who finds it. It might just be crazy dreams with no purpose at all BUT just in case here it is. Blessings John

Missouri Governor Charles Henry Hardin: Perhaps no better example of the governor’s style of leadership occurred than when the state faced the devastation of the 1875 grasshopper plague. Thousands of Missouri farmers, saw their crops eaten away by insects. State Entomologist C. V. Riley, in a letter of May 18, 1875, urged the governor to at least promote the killing of the grasshoppers by authorizing a bounty for them: “Have you not power to offer a small premium on the part of the State for every bushel of young grasshoppers destroyed? Such a premium would be a powerful incentive to the more destitute of the people in those districts to destroy the pests and thus avert future injury; and, at the same time give them the means of earning a living until the danger is past.”
Hardin, however, was unwilling to spend any tax money for such a venture, and he responded by proclaiming June 3 “a day of fasting and prayer that Almighty God may be invoked to remove from our midst these impending calamities, and to grant instead the blessings of abundance and plenty.” No doubt Hardin felt vindicated in his approach when, soon after, the grasshoppers left the state and headed north to Iowa.

Ok, that is a good start, when is the last time your heard of one of our nations governors call a day of fasting and prayer. That’s history do a google search or go to to your local library and you will find it is true.

 Show me bible prophecy:

Show me state, show me what? Well it comes from us as a people being stubborn as a Missouri mule not believing anything but, it must be proven. Listen I am Missouri to the core born in Independence in 1961. I still recall my father telling me Harry S Truman used to drive by our house on Truman road. Old Harry from Missouri had that buck stops here show me attitude. He himself was used by God to help the Jews return to Israel and become a nation after 2000 years of not being one.

“The Man From Missouri” Alfred Steinberg writes: The aftermath was, of course, war between the Arabs and Jews. But the new nation held its own. A year later, the Chief Rabbi of Israel… wanted to meet Truman and thank him. [Dave] Niles recalled:”Rabbi Herzog told Truman,”God put you in your mother’s womb so you would be the instrument to bring about the rebirth of Israel after two thousand years.” I thought he was overdoing things, but when I looked over at the President, tears were running down his checks.”

While all these things are true. It is the biblical show me I want to address.

Exodus 33:12-23
12 Moses said to the LORD, “See, thou sayest to me, ‘Bring up this people’; but thou hast not let me know whom thou wilt send with me. Yet thou hast said, ‘I know you by name, and you have also found favor in my sight.’ 13 Now therefore, I pray thee, if I have found favor in thy sight, show me now thy ways, that I may know thee and find favor in thy sight. Consider too that this nation is thy people.” 14 And he said, “My presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.” 15 And he said to him, “If thy presence will not go with me, do not carry us up from here. 16 For how shall it be known that I have found favor in thy sight, I and thy people? Is it not in thy going with us, so that we are distinct, I and thy people, from all other people that are upon the face of the earth?” 17 And the LORD said to Moses, “This very thing that you have spoken I will do; for you have found favor in my sight, and I know you by name.” 18 Moses said, “I pray thee, show me thy glory.” 19 And he said, “I will make all my goodness pass before you, and will proclaim before you my name ‘The LORD’; and I will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and will show mercy on whom I will show mercy. 20 But,” he said, “you cannot see my face; for man shall not see me and live.” 21 And the LORD said, “Behold, there is a place by me where you shall stand upon the rock; 22 and while my glory passes by I will put you in a cleft of the rock, and I will cover you with my hand until I have passed by; 23 then I will take away my hand, and you shall see my back; but my face shall not be seen.”

Many people including myself believe that Missouri has a destiny to be a place where people come with the “I can not go on with out you God” attitude. The Lord replies with a “I will show you my glory” even as He did Moses, when we take the posture of humility that He did. We are known as a family vacation state with many lakes, caves, bike trails and of course theme parks. They come burdened down and leave exhilarated. Here in Kansas City there is a place called International House of Prayer IHOP. We locals have a saying “dieing to live in Kansas city” people from all over the world come here to experience 24 hour prayer. What actually happens is people come with all their issue and the Lord says this one thing

Galations 2:20 I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me; and the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.

People either find out to see the Glory of the Lord you have to die, “die to self” or say no I have to much to live for and go on about their busy lives. I have been hanging around here most of my adult life and I find the more I let the Lord deal with kill my evil desires lust pride etc. the more I see His Glory.

Governor Hardin saw the need for our state to pray and fast yet while he is dead his call is still bearing fruit. BELIEVE it or NOT. Harry S Truman is dead and just a few miles away from his old home is a place that is devoted to 24 hour prayer and much of it is for Israel and God end time purposes. I myself live about 2 miles from Truman’s boy hood home and I think about him often. This is what I think, Truman was just a man he was not perfect in fact he was involved in the masonic lodge in all their secrets and who knows what else but this I know, God used Him. I meet Truman’s niece Mary Truman Gracey and she personally told me Truman firmly believe God had raised him up to help establish Israel as a nation.

My prayer is that our state would show the Jewish people the complete revelation of the glory of God that is no longer hidden behind a Vail but can be seen in the person of Jesus, Yeshua. Unlike the message of some popular preachers Jesus was the messiah and is the messiah and one day ALL ISRAEL will know it. God Bless Israel with the Spirit of Wisdom and Revelation to Know Him. Amen

I had the privilege to Travel with Regina Shank of Carthage Missouri to a handful of nations and have seen God’s hand move in supernatural ways. It is here in Missouri that I saw Regina who has been the leader of State wide prayer for several National Ministries touch the historic destiny of Missouri. I watched and participated as groups went to the literal places in the state and nation where monstrosities had previously happened. At those geographic locations extensive prayer and repentance for the sins of our forefathers was given. There is a weight that lifts as we stand in gap an own the sin of the Nation and put our trust in God that he is good and can heal our Land. We are in an hour where we desperately need God to intervene.

From the heart of the nation, the Bible belt, the bread basket, the land we call Missouri, we Love Jesus, yes we do, we love Jesus, how about You?      SHOW ME!
