AN INTERVIEW WITH JOANNE SMITH HOOKS
Dear Families, Friends, & Neighbors,
On Monday, May 4, 2020 during the early morning hours between 6:00am – 11:05am, the Spirit of the Lord visited me in a dream. I remembered the time specifically because I had been in prayer all night lifting our first Online Revival up before the Lord that the Women of Vision were hosting on May 5th – 7th. I couldn’t understand why I was given this dream a day prior to the Revival. Now, I am prompted by the Spirit of the Lord to share it with you. I mentioned it briefly during the Revival, yet not in depth.
THE DREAM: As I was placed into a deep sleep. It seems as though I was on some type of Island and we were outside at a church event on a large lawn. All of sudden the Spirit of the Lord had me to start walking and shouting repent, repent, repent. We must repent of our sins. No one was listening to me.
In the midst of me shouting repent, I looked up and discovered that an earthquake had hit and opened up the earth. What’s so ironic about this, we didn’t feel it nor hear it… Here’s another thing that was so strange: I was shown Lava in an earthquake, moving fast in a Big Circle, with a bright Fiery Orange like color (that looked like hot steam with smoke in it) flowing rapidly. I was shown that it was in the shape of a (GLOBE) meaning it was running globally, around the world. I tried to fore-warn the people that we could not cross over nor go around it. No one would listen to me. They just kept talking and doing whatever they do.
The Spirit of the Lord directed me to go and stick my hand in the Lava. I was afraid. I said, “It’s too hot.” I thought I would lose my hand if I did that. Who am I to buck against the Lord? As I stuck my hand in the Lava, I discovered that it was icy cold, as to a freezing level. I then asked the Lord, “What did this mean?” He said, “It’s just like the people are doing now, not taking heed to the crisis that’s going on around the world. They are still doing the same as usual and there is no change.” They have become cold. I woke up in fear. Actually, shaking….Help us Holy Ghost?
Take heed Saints of the Most High God….I don’t think we need an interpreter for this dream. It actually, speaks for itself. Do you agree?
The Bible says in, Matthew 24:12 "And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold."
Will you please share?

My mind is constantly focusing & feasting on an Online Revival the Spirit of the Lord allowed the Women of Vision to have on this week, May 5-7, 2020....It was phenomenal!!!
As we enter into our 99th day of fasting & praying eating only one meal a day coming against the Coronavirus, sicknesses, & diseases.
I have a few questions to ask you:
1). What happened to Revivals?
2). Why did we stop having them?
3). Are we going to bring them back?
The Purpose of a Revival is to:
1). To humble us.
2). To unify us.
3). To promote what is best for us.
4). To refresh us.
Psalm 85:6 says, "Will you not revive us again, that your people may rejoice in you?"
This was David's cry in this Psalm. One we know so well.
We really should consider going back to Revivals. This week in our Revival gave us a reason to experience the glory of the Lord, again. You know why? Because we were:
4. and Revived.
A Revival is not about us. It is about God drawing us to Him for His plan and purpose. It's about winning the lost at any cost.
A Revival is about feeling God's Presence.
In Closing: A Revival brings on repentence, healing, and miracles.
So you see, this is why we need to bring Revivals back.

Dear Heavenly Father,
As we come to the Throne of Grace seeking Your Face for answers in our lives. We realize there is no other way we can survive without your guidance and strength. As we pray Your Word and only Your Word, we are asking You to deliver us from the snares of this world? We see Your Legacy that You left for the world to abide by through a simple prayer in Matthew 6:9-13, which says:
“Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever.” Amen.
You showed us how precious we are through the eyes of King David in Psalms 23 by saying: “The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.”
You told us to be careful of our words in Proverbs 6:2, which says, “Thou art snared with the words of thy mouth, thou art taken with the words of thy mouth.”
Father, we see how You led us to 1Peter 2:9 which says, “But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light”:
We are so grateful what Jesus shared with us in John 14:6 by saying, “I Am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”
Yet, in Psalms 121, You are telling us when we are down there is something we should do and that is, “I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth.”
For we realize, that if sickness should come upon us, we know we can always trust Isaiah 53:5 which tells us, “But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.”
You know why, Father? Because You promised us in Hebrews 13:5 that, “You would never leave us, nor forsake us.”
Therefore, we honor what You told us in Jeremiah 31:3, “I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee.”
Father, You gave us the assurance in Hebrews 11:1 when you said, “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”
And we know without a doubt that 2 Corinthians 5:7 tells us “(For we walk by faith, not by sight:)”
Father, in Closing: As we refer back to when we were sinners, we remember quoting: Romans 10: 9-10 which says, “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.”
Heavenly Father, we as a people are coming in agreement thanking you in advance for Your Mighty Miracle Working Power because we trust in Your Word and we believe by faith that it is done and it is so.
In Jesus name, we pray……Amen
