Early Morning Cloud Adventure–Baptism Day–Sunday, August 15, 2021

Early Morning Cloud Adventure–Baptism Day
Sunday, August 15, 2021
Cindi McDonagh


I woke up right around 6 AM. I always check messages before I get out of bed. After reading one from my sister Linda, about my brother Gary, who urgently needed prayer for healing, I got out of bed. I didn’t even stop at the bathroom, didn’t stop to get the coffee going, put my sandals on, and walked out the door to take my usual early morning photographs.

On my way from my bed to the door, Jesus and I were already chasing Satan and his demons away from our family. It was baptism day…and miracle day…and healing day! Satan was NOT to be allowed to enter into that realm!

The first thing I saw as I walked outside was dark clouds (dark spirits) trying to “rain on our parade.” 😉 We (Jesus and I) came against that immediately!

I started singing “The Battle Hymn of the Republic.”

Lyrics: Julia Ward Howe

VERSE 1:
Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord.
He is trampling out the vintage where the grapes of wrath are stored.
He hath loosed the fateful lightning of His terrible swift sword.
His truth is marching on.

CHORUS:
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
His truth is marching on.

VERSE 2:
I have seen Him in the watch-fires of a hundred circling camps.
They have builded Him an altar in the evening dews and damps.
I can read His righteous sentence by the dim and flaring lamps.
His day is marching on.

CHORUS…

VERSE 3:
In the beauty of the lilies, Christ was born across the sea,
With a glory in His bosom that transfigures you and me.
As He died to make men holy, let us die to make men free!
While God is marching on.

CHORUS…


Then something odd happened.

At the point where I sang, “He hath loosed the fateful lightning of his terrible swift sword,” LIGHTNING FLASHED in the clouds on the far left of the second picture…only once. So I was unable to get a picture of it.

HEADS UP!!! I have now discovered that THIS also happened on Sunday, August 15, 2021…CHECK OUT THE LINK!!!

NOTE:  If you are on a computer, you should be able to right-click on the photos and choose to open them in a new tab, in order to see them larger. On your phone, you should be able to do something similar.

I said, “COOL!” and then started taking more photographs, as the sky began to show me a picture story.

While I took pictures and as the clouds changed, I was praying and Jesus and I were sending the spirits of sickness and disease into the depths of Hell where they belong. Then I suddenly stood staring in awe, because I saw it…THE EAGLE!!! Hallelujah!!!

Then the light began to take over the darkness–shining SO beautifully!!! Hallelujah!!!

Looking into the center of the eagle (which I didn’t notice until writing this), if you look at it one way, it looks like a mask. Looking at it now, I see the fingers of God’s hand!

Then, the eagle began changing. Though it remained a bird, I began to see it as a dove!

When Linda and I had been looking for pictures, a few days before, for making a poster for the baptism, we kept seeing pictures of a dove flying toward the water. So I did a little research.

If you check out the link, you’ll see that the dove signifies God’s presence!

Here’s the excerpt that “hit me,” since it was baptism day.


The Bible records [in Matthew 3:16-17], “…and when Jesus was baptized, immediately He went up from the water, and behold, the heavens were opened to Him, and He saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and coming to rest on him, and behold, a voice from Heaven said, ‘This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased.’ In this incredible moment, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit [were] present on Earth. Jesus [was] in His physical body, the Father [spoke] audibly for all present to hear, and the Spirit manifested like a dove.


I didn’t see the next part, until I started looking through the photos later in the day. Look carefully at the darkness. It looks kind of “bull-like.” That’s Satan! Look at what is thrust into his back!!! It’s the “terrible swift sword!!!” Hallelujah!!! Praise God!!!

Here’s some interesting reading about bulls, biblically speaking:
