Five visitations

During the last three years, Yeshua granted me 5 visitations. I am so grateful Yeshua manifested Himself to me. All of His visitations were so short, so sudden and so unexpected…it is very difficult to express these experiences in words, but I summarized them in my three books: An Encounter with Yeshua, An Encounter with Yeshua, the Sequel and Heart of a Savior ( that I completed recently….the book is in the process of being corrected and edited before I send it to my publisher.)


Despite the shortness of Yeshua’s visits, I could barely forget our Savior’s Face’s traits, and more specifically, His smile and the kindness that emanates from His whole being.

Yeshua is love in its purest dimension. Praised be He, forever and ever!

This picture is quite close to the Face I have seen during my first visitation. The second picture corresponds to my second visitation. The only difference is that He was giving me a very warm smile during my two first visitations.

Spiritual sight opening ( First visitation: “An Encounter with Yeshua”)


Yesterday I was just thinking about the testimony of some young guy who was saved in extremis from hell, as he was dying. Yeshua showed up in the last minute, gave him His hand and saved him.

The man also came back to life afterwards and testified about his powerful encounter with our Lord.

I was thinking to myself: “our Lord is indeed very powerful to do such things.”

As this thought crossed my mind, I saw Yeshua standing in front of me, smiling at me. Surprisingly, the sight I had did not come from my eyes…my vision was a little bit blurry, though.

I was feeling the presence of the Holy Spirit very strongly in me.

Yeshua then spoke to me: “My dear child, your eyes aren’t seeing me. This is your soul seeing me.”

Yeshua was teaching me an astonishing new lesson about the spiritual world: our souls do have this wonderful ability to see and identify Him, once the Holy Spirit opens our sight.

Second visitation ( An Encounter with Yeshua, the Sequel)

“He who has my commandments and keeps them, it is he who loves me. He will be loved by my Father and I will love him and manifest myself to Him.”

John 14:21

After a good night of rest, I woke up with a wonderful sense of peace. Yeshua was welcoming me so warmly in the presence of the Spirit. It was really reassuring after being confronted with people who rejected the Truth.

I knew in this moment that I had made the right choice in obeying Yeshua’s command. As I stepped out, Yeshua spoke to me :

« I forgive ignorance, but people have to recover from their ignorance, because there comes a time when it will be too late. »

I looked up to the sun and in this very moment, as I expected it least, the Son of Man was standing here, a few meters above me. His head was covered and He was wearing a white robe. His skin was tan. He was looking at me with a warm smile on His Face. He had pretty much the same appearance that He had on His first visit, in November 2014.

My vision only lasted a few seconds but Yeshua’s presence was felt very strong.

Yeshua spoke to me :

« Why are you so surprised to see me, my child ? I am THAT CLOSE to you. You must expect to see me.

Do you remember how many times you requested to see me again, and even in tears ?

Now that I am before you, why are you so much surprised ?

Beloved, you’ll see more, gradually. Have trust. I am preparing you. »

From “Heart of a Savior”

Yeshua blessed me with a third visitation

Just as I was writing the article about prophets and prophecy, I was blessed with a third visitation from Yeshua. It all happened so fast and unexpectedly…I wasn’t supposed to go on with writing after completing my article, but my desire to share Yeshua’s love with you all is much greater. This is how Yeshua makes me feel right now: loved beyond measure.

Before speaking about the visitation itself, I’d like to share with you what I experienced this afternoon while walking outside.

I have developed, through the months, a real affection with the Hebrew language. I was drawn to singing the specific verse 5 of Psalm 23, in Hebrew. I repeated the second part of verse 5, while chanting: “dishanta bashemen roshi kossi revaya.” (You anoint my head with oil, my cup overflows).

I let the words resonate and penetrate deeply into me and a strong vision imposed itself before my eyes: I saw a big cup before my eyes, but it was filled with grape juice. I heard the words: “kossi yeshuati”, the cup of my Salvation…It became clear to me that the blessing mentioned in Psalm 23 was intimately linked with our Messiah’s sacrifice of love.


I thanked Yeshua, over and over again, for His immense love.


As I went back home, I was pushed to write an article about prophets and prophecy.


While writing it, I intended to make a little pause. I put my hand onto my heart and said:
“Lord, I love you.”

I was about to get up from my sofa and glanced upwards. I then saw Yeshua standing above me. This time, our Lord had His hair loose and He was wearing a very white, shiny robe that had a belt on it.


Yeshua was looking at me…I was just in total awe…I then addressed our Lord telepathically: “Lord is this really you?”

Without using His voice, Yeshua answered to me: “my daughter, why are you so surprised again to see me?”


I am feeling so loved and this love I want to share with you.


God bless you all.

Meeting Yeshua’s loving eyes (Heart of a Savior, p. 80)

I had just finished a quite long day. I was about to close my computer and to prepare for the night when I saw Yeshua looking down on me. I just miraculously crossed His glance, in a very natural way. Yeshua our Savior has just allowed me to look into His eyes and my heart was filled with peace. His peace, the Shalom of His Spirit had come down into my soul.

Everything was in order, “beseder”, as the Hebrews would say. I cannot explain this feeling, but bathing into Yeshua’s eyes made everything fall into place.

Today has been a beautiful day, a truth-seeker has just invited Yeshua into his heart. The man was so happy that he wanted to shout out his joy to the whole world! Heaven rejoiced and my magnificent Savior concluded this amazing journey by granting me a deep look into His eyes.

This is now the fourth time Yeshua makes Himself visible to my eyes. I am truly blessed. Although the way He appears to me is very different every time it occurs to me, my soul instantly recognizes the One I love.

There is so much joy and so much peace in Yeshua’s wonderful presence.

You might ask what Yeshua resembled this time. I raised my eyes upwards and

my sight was opened. Our Savior was dressed in white and had His dark brown hair loose. But what is really remarkable this time is that I was drawn into his eyes quite immediately. Without trembling, in a very fearless manner, Yeshua let me plunge my eyes into His. I am still unable to define His eye color. All I can say is that our Lord and Savior’s eyes look like a deep ocean of kindness.

Looking at Him is the greatest blessing for the soul.

Through His exquisite eyes, I visited the immensity of His heart and for that I am so grateful.

A fifth visitation by our Savior (Heart of a Savior)

Yeshua’s visitations are always very unexpected. I was relaxing at home after dinner. I decided to view the “Shalom Aleichem” video I had discovered a few days earlier. This very anointed video made impression on me. While I was listening to the song, my soul went deep into adoration of the Most High.

The second after I raised my head and glanced at the wall.

My eyes contemplated the Face of the King of the Kings whose traits and long hair I could distinguish. Yeshua’s head was surrounded with a big halo of light I had never seen before. Yeshua’s majesty was summarized in all details of what He let me contemplate of Him.

Holy is our Lord and His holiness is present in each of the visitations He grants me. Oh reader, join me in high praise, as the words flow out of my mouth.

Glory to Yeshua, the King of the Kings, who reigns for ever and ever!”

Yongsung Kim: paintings that draw you into Yeshua’s light

Whether they are writers, musicians or painters, artists have different ways of conveying their message to their audience. However, they all have something in common: through their work, they manage to make their public feel in a certain way. 

Because they make abstraction of  their ego, the artists who dedicated their work to the Lord are known to have released the biggest, everlasting masterpieces. Johann Sebastian Bach is one of them.

In the contemporary world of painting, Yongsung Kim’s faith in Yeshua our Messiah impacts his work tremendously.

Today, I’d like you to discover the amazing artist a little bit more in depth.


Who is Yongsung Kim?






Yongsung Kim is a South-Korean artist who instils faith to his viewers through his unique way of sharing Yeshua. In a discrete, wordless but in a powerful outcry of the artist’s heart, his pictures indicate that the artist has a deep and loving relationship with our Lord.

Love and devotion appear in his subtle light and shadow plays and the magnificent feelings he composes through the soft color combination he uses.

His painting technique is very genuine and subtle. The scenes that take place in the nature will allow you to perceive the trees’ breathing. Moreover, Yongsung Kim’s biblical art unveils our Lord’s great spirit of compassion in each picture, whether he paints Him laughing, in pain, holding roses, or with children.


I believe that good art can draw people closer to our Lord. From my very personal story, Yeshua got my attention through a beautiful painting after the Shroud of Turin.


Let us explore Yongsung Kim’s world.


Yeshua’s dual nature revealed in Yongsung Kim biblical art


Here is a picture of Yeshua laughing, very spontaneously. Our Lord is dwelling among us and He is inviting us to share His joy. The light, ethearal background put a spotlight on elevated feelings: joy, gratitude, the pleasure of being alive. Our Creator is laughing with us, providing hope to mankind.


I particularly like Yongsung Kim’s depictions of Yeshua laughing and smiling, because too many artists occulted our Lord’s joy. I’ve even heard people affirm that Yeshua was a sad person. Rather the contrary is true. Whoever was approached by Yeshua knows that He is love and deep joy.

Our Lord’s humanity is so much present in this picture  and so beautifully rendered.





Yeshua’s divine nature represented


With Yeshua walking on the water , the attentive viewer enters into a supernatural dimension quite immediately. Yongsung Kim uses subtle layers of blue colors in order to create a movement. We can sense a little bit of turbulence inside of the water while Yeshua walks in the middle of the Sea of Galilee. The picture also seems to be scanning the depths of the water, as the stones reflect in a very subtle manner.

We do pray to have enough faith to be able to walk on the water as well, as long as possible, with an unwavering faith…we suddenly realize that we are all one immersed in the infinite ocean of His love.






The good shepherd, nature and everlasting love for children


The soft touches of green beautify all paintings of the artist and will transport you into the universe of Psalm 23 quite immediately. 

Yongsung Kim also has a very touching way of showing our Lord in the middle of little children.

The Good News is being announced and spread in front of the viewers’ astonished eyes: so much authentic nature scenes, so much goodness, so much beauty and compassion.

Yongsung Kim’s biblical art touches the human heart by a description of Yeshua that is beyond words.

The wells of Isaac





Genesis chapter 26 contains an important spiritual teaching about Isaac walking with God.

First and foremost we are being taught about the importance of water and wells. Especially in Middle Eastern countries, water is one of the most precious gifts one could get.

Digging wells will ensure your survival, the survival of your family, but also the growth of the farmer’s seeds and thus, nourishment for everybody.

The symbolic of Isaac’s wells

The story of the wells of Isaac has a much broader meaning than one could actually think. Not only are the wells a symbol of wealth and prosperity, but spiritually speaking they are a symbol of Salvation.

The Book of Isaiah states: “With joy you will draw water from the wells of Salvation”.

Water is also one of the elements that symbolize the Holy Spirit, that is sometimes called “Liquid Spirit”. Concretely, the Holy Spirit’s presence feels like refreshing water to the thirsty soul.

in the Gospel of John (7.38), Yeshua promises us the “river of living water”.

“He who believes in me as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow the river of living water.”

The first well Isaac is living nearby is called Laha Roi which has the meaning in Hebrew of the well of the Living Seeing One.

Laha Roi is certainly the starting point of Isaac’s vision of life. (Genesis 25:11)

Hashem’s plans in Isaac’s life

Genesis 26 reports about a time of famine in Beersheva during which Hashem requests from Isaac to stay in the land of the Philistines, in Gerar, instead of moving towards Egypt, with  a promise of guidance and blessings.

Let us point out that Isaac’s obedience to Hashem is mandatory to be blessed.

True followers of our Messiah are supposed to be obedient, not as slaves would obey a despotic master, though, but because we know that our Lord’s purpose is ALWAYS for our highest good. His plan is perfect.

Therefore we should never take a move to another place lightly. A Jewish friend told me, years ago: ” a person who changes her place of residence changes her destiny”, which is right. 

Obedience requires faith.

Isaac could have reacted by fear to the famine conditions, but he trusted that Hashem would provide. It is so much important to walk by faith and not by sight.

Isaac’s faith was rewarded greatly.

“And Isaac sowed in that land and reaped in the same year a hundredfold. The Lord blessed him, and the man became rich, and gained more and more until he became very wealthy.(Genesis 26: 12-13)

Psalm 23:5 states: “you anoint my head and my cup overflows”.

Whom the Lord truly blesses, He grants prosperity.

Isaac’s difficulties-enlarging life’s vision

Hashem was with Isaac despite the opposition and the disputes he encountered on his path. Success makes people envious. Two of Isaac’s wells are named after these disputes Esek (quarrel) and Sitna (enemy).

Fortunately, God kept guiding Isaac and he eventually found a place of peace, where disputes were absent. Isaac named his well Rehoboth.

“He moved on from there and dug another well, and no one quarreled over it. He named it Rehoboth, saying, “Now the Lord has given us room and we will flourish in the land.”(Genesis 26:22)

Rehobot was a broad and fruitful place. Nobody opposed prosperity and even his enemies are seeking peace.

Renewed Covenant, theophany and worship in Beersheva

Interestingly, when Isaac comes back to Beersheva, he has a personal face to face encounter with the Lord.

“The Lord appeared to him the same night and said, “I am the God of your father Abraham. Do not fear, for I am with you. I will bless you, and multiply your descendants. For the sake of my servant Abraham.” Genesis 26:24

Hashem renews Abraham’s Covenant with Isaac. 

Isaac starts worshipping the Saint of Israel and starts calling upon His Name. It is no coincidence that the last well mentioned is called Shiba,oath.

It is very important that the true follower of our Messiah worships Hashem in truth and Spirit. Any true follower who is determined to do our Lord’s will, will also experience the manifestations of His presence, because it is a biblical promise.

“Whoever has my commands and keeps them is the one who loves me. The one who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I too will love them and show myself to them.” John 14:21

Miriam of Magdala, key witness of the Resurrection

synagogue of Magdala

N.B : I am using the Hebrew names of Yeshua and Miriam.

Mary Magdalene and Jesus, as quoted in different Bible versions refer to the same persons. I am pointing it out just to avoid to useless controversy.

Who is Miriam of Magdala ?

We know very little about Miriam of Magdala. The Gospels give us brief references about her. We know from the Gospel accounts that she used to be tormented by 7 demons and that Yeshua delivered her. After undergoing this exorcism, she became a disciple and started following Yeshua. She is one of the most faithful follower to our Lord.

She is named among the female witnesses of the crucifixion and she is also the first to be honored with the sight of our resurrected Lord.

Myriam of Magdala is also mentioned in some apocrypha such as the Gospel of Thomas and the Gospel of Miriam, that goes back to the 2nd Century. However, the messages delivered in these apocrypha should be handled with care because they refer to some esoteric, gnostic teaching, a heresy from the 2nd Century.

As for the writings being recently excavated and stating that Yeshua was married with children to Miriam of Magdala should be done away with. I call them « unholy sources » and I do consider that the true follower of Yeshua who believes and respects our Lord and Savior should consider them as dirty boulevard press.

First of all, if Yeshua had been married, the Gospels would have spoken about it. The Gospel of Matthew did not hide from us that Yosef, Yeshua’s adoptive father had a normal, marital relationship to Miriam, Yeshua’s mom after our Lord was born. Brothers and sisters of Yeshua are mentioned in the Gospels as well.

Secondly, if one consciously knows that Yeshua is IHVH in the flesh, the thesis of Him being married is instantly ridiculed. Hashem marrying a woman ? Nonsense.

Third, Yeshua walked in purity during His whole time on earth. His « marriage » was His duty to accomplish His Father’s will and to bring Salvation to humanity. His life is a life of total abnegation, even of His own person.

So, if you respect Yeshua the Messiah of Israel, you should envision His relationship to Miriam as something beautiful, pure and holy.

On a side note, the ruins of a synagogue in Magdala where Yeshua supposedly preached have been found recently in Israel.

What the Gospels say about Miriam of Magdala

The Gospel of Luke mentions Miriam along with other female followers. Luke also points out that Miriam, along with her demonic possession, used to suffer from infirmities :

Now it came to pass, afterward, that He went through every city and village, preaching and bringing the glad tidings of the kingdom of God. And the twelve were with Him, and certain women who had been healed of evil spirits and infirmities—Mary called Magdalene, about of whom had come seven demons and Joanna the wife of Chuza, Herod’s steward, and Susanna, and many others who provided for Him from their substance.

(Luke 8:1-2)

Her name appears later again in Luke chapter 24 where she is mentioned along with another group of females spreading the Good News of our Lord’s Resurrection, but facing male disciple’s disbelief.

Now they were Mary Magdalene and Joanna and Mary the mother of James; also the other women with them were telling these things to the apostles.But these words appeared to them as nonsense, and they would not believe them.

(Luke 24:10-11)

The Gospel of Matthew reports of Miriam of Magdala and the other Miriam coming to the tomb after Shabbat. The Resurrection is announced by an angel of the Lord who exhorts them to announce it to the other disciples.

Now after the Sabbath, toward the dawn of the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to see the tomb.And behold, there was a great earthquake, for an angel of the Lord descended from heaven and came and rolled back the stone and sat on it.His appearance was like lightning, and his clothing white as snow.And for fear of him the guards trembled and became like dead men.But the angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified.He is not here, for he has risen,as he said. Come, see the place where he lay.Then go quickly and tell his disciples that he has risen from the dead, and behold,he is going before you to Galilee; there you will see him. See, I have told you.”So they departed quickly from the tomb with fear and great joy, and ran to tell his disciples.

Matthew 28:1-8

In the Gospel of Matthew there is no record of Miriam’s encounter with Yeshua, but John offers us a touching report.

The scene at the tomb in the Gospel of John

« Now Mary stood outside the tomb crying. As she wept, she bent over to look into the tomb and saw two angels in white,seated where Jesus’ body had been, one at the head and the other at the foot.

They asked her, “Woman, why are you crying?”

“They have taken my Lord away,” she said, “and I don’t know where they have put him.”At this, she turned around and saw Jesus standing there, but she did not realize that it was Jesus.

He asked her, “Woman, why are you crying?Who is it you are looking for?”

Thinking he was the gardener, she said, “Sir, if you have carried him away, tell me where you have put him, and I will get him.”

Jesus said to her“Mary.”

She turned toward him and cried out in Aramaic,“Rabboni!”.

Jesus said,“Do not hold on to me, for I have not yet ascended to the Father. Go instead to my brothers and tell them, ‘I am ascending to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God.’”

Mary Magdalene went to the disciples with the news: “I have seen the Lord!” And she told them that he had said these things to her. »

(John 20:1-18)

 

An ocular witness of Yeshua’s crucifixion must have felt confused and in despair after Yeshua’s death. One must also consider that the disciples feared persecution after these tragic events. Their hearts were probably filled with grief and anxiety.

Miriam of Magdala was the kind of person to be very close to our Lord. Yeshua’s death left her in deep sorrow.

Today we are having the full picture of Yeshua being the Messiah of Israel. But back in the 1st Century, although Yeshua had foreseen and announced crucifixion and resurrection, most disciples were unable to understand the prophetic meaning of our Lord’s sayings.

Let us meet Miriam at the tomb. She is about to witness the greatest miracle that will give hope to all mankind. Deeply affected, heartbroken, she is sitting outside of the tomb, weeping.

Then she sees two angels asking her about her pain.

Miriam was looking for Yeshua’s dead body and thought that somebody had stolen it.

She then glances at someone she mistakes for the gardener. Her eyes are blind to see Yeshua.

I have been asking myself why so many times.

Had Yeshua’s post resurrection appearance changed to the point He was unrecognizable ? Or was it because He now possessed a glorified body ?

Did the depth of her pain contribute her shift in perception ?

Matter of fact, she is able to know it is Yeshua by the familiar tone of His voice.

Her deep sorrow is now changed into joy.

Miriam will now be able to tell the other disciple’s that she’s seen the Lord.

What a beautiful testimony from the first female to experience the glory of the Resurrected.
