Several weeks ago, Christian author and prophet, Matthew Robert Payne, prophesied that I was a round circle in a square hole. A few days later, I asked God, “Why am I a round circle in a square hole? Why am I not a circle outside of a square? I can think outside the box, and I know you’re not confined to a box.”
Immediately, God replied, “It’s because you don’t feel the separation, Stephanie. You don’t feel the separation like many others do.” I was puzzled for a second, but I understood what He meant. He continued, “That space between the circle and the square represents the separation many of My children feel they have with Me. Many of them don’t feel connected to Me like you do. Remember our spinning encounter?”
I then recalled a vision I had a few months before when I engaged the Father, Jesus, and The Holy Spirit during an exercise as part of the online “Engaging God” program taught by Mike Parsons. We were asked to engage the Father, Jesus, and The Holy Spirit either individually, or all at once. I decided to engage them all at once. This was the first time I had done this with all three, and what happened next was truly amazing!
When I engaged them in the spirit, they surrounded and embraced me all at once. I felt enormous love, peace, and a sense of complete security in their presence. Then I felt they wanted to show me something.
We all joined hands in a big circle, connecting to one another, signifying that we were “one”. Next, we started to move and lift up off of the floor. Then, we began spinning. We were spinning super fast, like a centrifuge. It was as fast as anyone could ever imagine. Initially, I thought “I hope I don’t get dizzy”. What they showed me next was incredible! (This all happened in the spirit, we were not spinning in my living room.)
I then began realize that the speed with which we were spinning created an optical illusion, resulting in a combined image of us. We had blended into each other and appeared as one. Our spirits were together as one! Once I grasped this concept, I was quickly back in the center of the circle, without experiencing any dizziness.
Again, I was surrounded by the Father, Jesus, and The Holy Spirit, but now they were spinning around me like a whirlwind. The image we created together had morphed into a another image. This time it was only made up of the Father, Jesus, and The Holy Spirit. Then, I heard, “You in me, I in you. You in me, I in you. You in me, I in you.”, repeating over and over and over.
Shortly after, I felt a physical pressure pushing in on me. It was the presence of them surrounding me. It felt like a firm hug pressing in from top to bottom, all while the spinning continued. This is when I realized they were no longer a circular tunnel spinning around me. They had conformed themselves to the entire length of my body, and not permitting any space between us. We were in full contact.
At that point, I began to experience other physical and emotional feelings that are difficult to describe. My heart was racing and doing flips. I felt an explosion of endorphins inside my body, soul, and spirit. My spirit was weeping with overwhelming joy! I kept hearing, “You in me, I in you. You in me, I in you. You in me, I in you”.
I continued to feel the pressure of the whirlwind intensify around me, increasing in intensity by the second. However, it wasn’t uncomfortable in the least bit. Then I felt a vibration all over the outside of my body; a buzzing pressure with an intensifying depth. I still continued to hear, “You in me, I in you. You in me, I in you. You in me, I in you”.
Then I realized they had pressed their way through and were inside of me. The whirlwind spun inside my body with such a centrifugal force. They were inside the core of my spirit, still spinning, and saying, “You in me, I in you. You in me, I in you. You in me, I in you”. I was completely blown away with this encounter! I said, “I get it! I finally get it! This is what that verse means!”
“I do not ask for these only, but also for those who will believe in me through their word, that they may all be one, just as you, Father, are in me, and I in you, that they also may be in us, so that the world may believe that you have sent me. The glory that you have given me I have given to them, that they may be one even as we are one, I in them and you in me, that they may become perfectly one, so that the world may know that you sent me and loved them even as you loved me.” John 17:20-23
This is what God does when we continually seek Him. This is something that I know every Christian can experience, and it’s what gives me the passion to share with others how they too can experience a closer relationship with God the Father, Jesus, and The Holy Spirit. If you’ve just read this and it doesn’t impact you in any way, I recommend you read it again. This encounter was extraordinary, and what you’re going to read next will astonish you!
“On that day you will realize that I am in my Father, and you are in me, and I am in you.” John 14:20
“The Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you.” John 14:26
When I recalled this encounter, I experienced the same extraordinary feelings all over again, only with more intensity. I understood why I was described as a round circle in a square hole. I understood what God meant when He said, “It’s because you don’t feel the separation Stephanie. You don’t feel the separation like many others do. That space between the circle and the square represents the separation many of My children feel like they have with Me. Many of them don’t feel connected to Me like you do.”
“It’s because you don’t feel the separation Stephanie. You don’t feel the separation like many others do. That space between the circle and the square represents the separation many of my children feel like they have with me. Many of them don’t feel connected to me like you do.”
Then, God did something unexpected. He shared a little bit of His heart with me. I began to feel some of what He could feel. I felt the ache, the feeling of rejection.
His yearning desire to connect with each and every one of us.
His yearning desire for us to want to connect with Him, to seek Him, and to want to spend time with Him.
His yearning desire for us to want get to know Him.
His heart was crushed, and He allowed me to see it, He allowed me to feel it. I felt a sadness, and wept for Him.
“Yet I am not alone, for the Father is with me.” John 16:32
Then He said, “I even sent My only Son to take that separation for you. He wanted to do it, but many of My children still don’t understand. I was inside My only Son. I was in His flesh, but on the cross I had to leave Him. I had to exit His body and leave Him all alone in that moment.
He went through it to take all of the separation for you. That’s how far He was willing to go to relate to you, to all of you. He had to go all the way, all the way to take it all for you. He had to feel the abandonment. He had to feel the rejection. He had to feel Me leave. He had to feel the separation, so you didn’t have to. He took that separation for all of you.
It was so you didn’t have to feel separated from Me ever again. He did it so you could all have a close relationship with Me. He did it so you could all have a close relationship with Him. He even stood there and said,
“I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me. If you really know me, you will know my Father as well. From now on, you do know him and have seen him.” (John 14:6-7)
“The problem is that many of My children believe they have to be dead in the flesh to come up here and spend time with Me. I never said they had to die in the flesh to come to Me. They need to die to themselves and receive My Son.
The enemy lies to My children to prevent them from visiting with Me. I sacrificed My only Son, and the enemy still has the power to convince My children that they are not allowed to come up here while they live on the earth. My enemy has even infiltrated the church, spreading his lies.
All My children have to do is close their eyes, and by faith, step through the “door” to visit Me here. They come to Me through My Son. He is at the door. He is the door. He will greet them and bring them to Me. Stephanie, please try to teach them how to have a closer relationship with Me, My Son, and The Holy Spirit.”
“About three in the afternoon Jesus cried out in a loud voice, “Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani?” (which means “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”).” Matthew 27:46
And when Jesus had cried out with a loud voice, He said, “Father, into Thy hands I commend My spirit.” And having said thus, He gave up the ghost. Luke 23:46
“And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me.” Luke 9:23
“Father, I want those you have given me to be with me where I am, and to see my glory, the glory you have given me because you loved me before the creation of the world.” John 17:24
“After this I looked, and there before me was a door standing open in heaven. And the voice I had first heard speaking to me like a trumpet said, “Come up here…” Revelation 4:1
“Then they heard a loud voice from heaven saying to them, “Come up here.” Revelation 11:12
“Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God.” Matthew 5:8
So, yes! I am a round circle in a square hole, and proud of it. Thank you, Lord! My story goes to show how God can use something as simple as the symbol of “a round circle in a square hole” to reveal life changing, Holy Ghost revelation, if we just press in and seek Him more. So, the next time you receive a word of God that you don’t like, or that makes you feel uncomfortable, seek the truth from God himself before you reject it. Blessings to you all! ~Stephanie Easley
