Upon entering through the opening of the rock wall Jesus led them to a waterfall. Some were walking the path, others moving quickly through it passing through the dry brown area close to the entrance of the wall that gradually turned into a green shaded area. The path was now shaded with trees on both side as if they were reaching their hands out to touch each other forming a tunnel of cool breeze and shade which ushered the travelers to a cascading waterfall surrounded by trees of many sorts was at the end of the road. The beauty of this place. The sound of birds, occasional breeze, and the waterfall was exhilarating it was a garden. The open area in front of the waterfall seemed to be used for training those who entered the narrow path. Upon entering the narrow gate all would start as a very young child. Remember we are speaking about the spirit of a person. And only the spirit can enter into this realm.
Before continuing let us come to an understanding, let us get a clear picture or else there might be confusion and we all know that God is not the author of confusion.
“For God is not the author of confusion but of peace,.”I Corinthians 14:33
The human being is made of three parts spirit, soul, and body/flesh. The spirit brings consciousness of God to humans, because God is Spirit.
“God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.””John 4:24
The soul is the human mind, thought life, the essence of you, your personality, and your emotions. The soul brings consciousness to self.
The flesh is the shell the house for the soul and spirit. It is conscious of the earth, it was made from the earth, from dust.
Those that do not know Jesus have a dormant spirit, they are not connected to God as one as in the case of believers. It is like a lamp that is not plugged in, no power connected, no light, it is just a bulb that is useless without electricity.
It seemed that not every believer entered the Narrow Gate, but only few would find it. Many were deterred by the such an entrance, many chose the wide gate.
““Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it.” Matthew 7:13
Those who entered seemed to all be toddlers and as they continued to walk they would grow. The Lord had been walking with them and talking with them through the journey before arriving to the area of the waterfall.
Fiona was now on a horse that was white with cream mane and she was dressed in full armour with sword and shield. The sword had represented the word of God in her life and the shield represented the faith in her life.
As she tried to manuever the horse the Lord revealed to her that the waterfall was the living water of God that had proceeded from His throne and this must have been one of the areas that a stream broke off from the main river of life and had arrived to this location.
The Lord had taught those who were being trained not to ever put their sword in a sheath, it was always to be used. Think of the things a sword can do. It can cut, clear areas, and be stabbed into the ground as an anchor in case of slippery or dangerous situations. The size of each persons sword depended on the persons understanding of the word of God in their life.
The shield that Fiona was carrying was a bit larger then her body. She had to learn how to balance the shield while she was on the horse while holding the sword in her other hand. If she did not learn how to balance her shield (faith) it could pull her off the horse and then crush her. The shield was made of some kind of metal. The lesson of balancing the shield seemed to be the area of focus for her.
At the same place in another visit, Jesus was teaching Heir how to maneuver his horse. Then the garden waterfall area had changed into a rock area on a mountain. The Lord then said, “Tell them, I am coming soon.”
