The vision given to me on February 1, 2016: I saw a vast number of cars, a number too vast to count; these cars ignored all the warning signs, then finally went around the physical barrier; the signs and barrier were all placed to warn of a deadly cliff looming just ahead. I sobbed as I saw the profound danger as the distance between the cliff and the barrier was very short, but I could not measure its distance.
I then found myself standing between the barrier and the deadly cliff knocking on the windows of as many cars as I could, yet just a very few rolled down their window to hear my plea of the danger which lay just ahead. I was brokenhearted; also, I could not see any of their faces.
The interpretation: The cars represented the mere-professing Christian who ignored all the warning signs placed before them, even going around the last barrier. This did cause me to sob; however, this also caused me – compelled me to knock on as many windows as I could, yet only the humble of heart would roll down their window to hear a last plea to stop, as the deadly cliff loomed just ahead.
That said, I could not measure this distance between the last barrier and the deadly cliff, because only our heavenly Father knew this distance; however, I did know intuitively that after the last barrier was breached, the distance had to be very short.
As my Lord knocked on the door of the Laodicea church, I now was to knock on the windows of the cars, as the deadly cliff loomed just ahead; yet, I could not see the faces as I was not allowed to judge the individual.
The Solemn Plea: After the vision, I knew His plea was the book He had me write, The Portrait of a Christian. This book took more than five years to write, as every word had to be prayed over – for a total of six years to finally publish it. Knowing this writing was far beyond my abilities, my acknowledgment in the book read: To God be the Glory!
How all this will take place I do not know; however, I do know that the means will come supernaturally, and I must keep my hands off as this is my Lord’s plea – not my plea. May He give this servant the strength and courage to deny myself and take up my cross so I will not interfere in any way with His work.

A solemn plea from His servant,
