The morning of 4/25/17, I was a little surprised by the Lord’s instructions. But, He helped me understand what a battle there was continuing to be for the release of the blessings He had planned. My human hopes had geared me to think all was done. He reminded me that often when He says He is going to do something, He wants us to participate in bringing it into the earthly realm.

So He asked me to pray with Him that the gifts He longs to bring will come and not delay! I will show you the verses He poured onto me. I was not looking for any of them. (All verses are from the New American Standard Bible.) “And whatever you ask in My name, that will I do that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask Me anything in My name, I will do it.” John 14:13-14 “If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it shall be done for you.” John 15:7 “…but I have called you friends, for all things that I have heard from My Father I have made known to you.” John 15:15b “Truly, truly, I say to you, if you shall ask the Father for anything, He will give it to you in My name. Until now you have asked for nothing in My name; ask, and you will receive, that your joy may be made full.“ John 16: 29-30

Then I saw a faint, but huge swan in the sky nestling its head on its back fathers, as I have seen them do before. Then I saw a fish in front of it. I believe the swan represents the mature body of Christ in her glory.

I believe the fish represents the verse that says, “Ask, and it shall be given to you; seek, and you shall find; knock and the door shall be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it shall be opened. Or what man is there among you, when his son shall ask him for a loaf, will give him a stone? Or if he shall ask for a fish, he will not give him a snake, will he? If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more shall your Father who is in heaven give what is good to those who ask Him!” Matthew 7:7-11

Then I “accidently” flipped to 1 Samuel 1:17, “Then Eli answered and said, ‘Go in peace; and may the God of Israel grant your petition that you have asked of Him.’” (Here Samuel was answering Hannah who had asked God for a son.) Today, 4/28/17, the Lord showed me this, “And now, my daughter, do not fear. I will do for you whatever you ask, for all my people in the city know that you are a woman of excellence.” Ruth 4:11 (Boaz’s response to Ruth’s request to be her Kinsman-Redeemer.)

So our Great Provider is hearing our cries for “bread,” for “fish,” for offspring, for a mate…. He wants to answer! Join Him in ushering in the unfolding of His dramatic transfer of wealth and blessing to His “Beautiful Swan” who has so long been mocked as the “Ugly Duckling!”

Waiting in joyful anticipation,


The Camels Are Coming!

Years ago, I heard Wesley and Stacy Campbell at a conference that I attended. That night, before they spoke the second day, I had a dream which seemed to last all night. The whole night I was keenly aware of the glory and presence of God! For hours, camels were streaming through the Middle East bringing treasures. I awoke with this phrase in my head, which was a sort of play on words, “the camels (Campbells) are coming!” I sensed it had something to do with the Joseph story and the provisions he made for his family and that region during famine. That day, I told Wesley that I had had that dream. The Campbells did bring incredible blessings that weekend!  But I knew the dream meant more.

About a year or two ago, I had another dream: I was at the host house for our little home ecclesia, Mountain River. The meeting had ended and we all left, but I found we had all regathered in another room where we were seated around a long table. A man walked in and placed a large check in front of Jeff and me. Someone across the table good-naturedly placed their hand on the check and said,” I claim a similar blessing for myself!” “You will decree a thing, and it will be established for you; and a light will shine on your ways.” Job 22:28 (NASB)

I left and turned back to face the outside wall of the room I had just come from. I was amused to see, streaming from the far upper right corner down to the left lower corner, a series of tiny animated-looking camels! They all had people on their backs. For some reason, I was impressed to count them, 35 in all!  I shared the dream later with my home group and that I believed it meant we were all going to be blessed financially enough to fund our needs and our God-given dreams!

I was impressed to look up Isaiah 35, in connection with the dream. The entire chapter is about the coming Millennial Kingdom. I would strongly encourage you to take some time and read this chapter! I realize we are coming to the end of this era and that great tribulation has been predicted. But I firmly believe that there will be a short window of time in which many of us, like Joseph, will be able to store up provisions for the difficult times preceding Christ’s Second Coming. I believe that season is upon us now!

Many of our hopes and dreams were intended by God to be realized in this season, for our sake and for the sake of those we will influence into the Kingdom during this next great revival! Seemingly impossible dreams to do great things for God have been planted in our hearts!  To fulfill these God-breathed visions, some of us need more resources, financial and otherwise. Some of us need shifts in location, the marriage partner we have ached for, a change in relationships we already have, healing for ourselves or loved ones, favor with certain people, promotion at work, a change in occupation, open doors which had been closed, etc….

When I was 20, the Lord “called me” through Isaiah 61:1-3. That passage includes the following injunction: “The Spirit of the Lord God is open me… to proclaim the favorable year of the Lord.” (NASB) I am now 59 years old and He is releasing me to proclaim to you forerunners, those who have waited and waited bursting with hope: THIS IS THE YEAR OF THE FAVOR OF OUR GOD! This Year! Right Now! Receive hope and proclaim this yourself. Hold fast to this promise, for it is in the process of fulfillment. Now is the day of salvation! Now is the acceptable year of the Lord! (see 2 Corinthians 6:2)  The camels are coming bearing blessings!

Then you will see and be radiant, and your heart will thrill and rejoice; because the abundance of the sea will be turned to you, the wealth of nations will come to you. A multitude of camels will cover you… Isaiah 60:5-6a (NASB)

In His Joy!


P.S. Hope you like my camel pictures! The watermark on my back porch left by the rain especially fascinated me! Whoever said, “God no longer speaks today?” He is shouting! 🙂






I want to relate an experience that I had a few days ago. I was standing in an open, brightly lit field beside deep woods meditating on the verse: ”But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in His wings.” Malachi 4:2 (KJV). I remembered several night visions I’d had in which I saw a sunrise. I was aware that all those dreams were pictures of the Lord returning! He is the Sunrise: “Because of the tender mercy of our God, with which the Sunrise from on high will visit us, TO SHINE UPON THOSE WHO SIT IN DARKNESS AND THE SHADOW OF DEATH, to guide our feet into the way of peace.” Luke 1:78-79.

Then suddenly, I felt the Lord’s presence and received the following impressions: “You ARE hearing me! I am showing you My imminent return. My Cyrus (speaking of President Trump) will begin to release wealth to My people in his first 100 days!” I realize our president is roughhewn and I certainly do not agree with all he says and does. But I do deeply respect him and sense strongly that the Lord will use him as he did Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon and Cyrus of Persia who did not even know God, at least at first. I believe that President Donald J. Trump is the modern day fulfillment of the following verse:

Thus says the Lord to Cyrus His anointed, whom I have taken by the right hand, to subdue nations before him, and to loose the loins of kings; to open doors before him so that gates will not be shut: I will go before you and make the rough places smooth; I will shatter the doors of bronze, and cut through their iron bars. And I will give you the treasures of darkness, and hidden wealth in secret places, in order that you may know that it is I, The Lord, the God of Israel, who calls you by your name. Isaiah 45: 1-4

The wind stirred up. I turned to my right to look again for the red cardinal I had seen in the tree behind me. I then noticed a fig tree. The Lord continued, “My fig tree will bear fruit.” I knew He referred to Israel.

Whereas you have been forsaken and hated with no one passing through, I will make you an everlasting pride, a joy from generation to generation… Instead of bronze I will bring gold, and instead of iron I will bring silver, and instead of wood, bronze, and instead of stones, iron. And I will make peace your administrators and righteousness your overseers. Isaiah 60:15, 17 (NASB)

Waiting Expectantly,



Judgment Has Begun!

The Judge

Last year around the middle of the Hebrew month of Elul (middle of 9/2016), I was captivated by the cloud you see to the left. So I took a picture of it. At first, I thought it was Moses and the 10 commandments. But the Lord let me know I was seeing a likeness of Him in the clouds. He was announcing His appearance as Judge and His intention to begin a new season of judgment. His book of Records was/is opened and court was/is in session! I knew He did not mean the Great White Throne Judgment. I just knew He had begun to make things right on the earth in a very intentional way! He gave me Psalm 75:

When I select an appointed time, it is I who judge with equity. For not from the east, nor from the west, nor from the desert comes exaltation (“promotion” in some versions); but God is the Judge; He puts down one and exalts another. NASB

I love this whole chapter in The Message:

We thank you, God, we thank you – your Name is our favorite word; your mighty works are all we talk about. You say, “I’m calling this meeting to order, I’m ready to set things right. When the earth goes topsy-turvy and nobody knows which end is up, I nail it all down, I put everything in place again. I say to the smart alecks, ‘That’s enough,’ to the bullies, ‘Not so fast.’” Don’t raise your fist against High God. Don’t raise your voice against Rock of Ages. He’s the One from the east to west; from desert to mountains, he’s the One. God rules: he brings this one down to his knees, pulls that one up on her feet. God has a cup in his hand, a bowl of wine, full to the brim. He draws from it and pours; it’s drained to the dregs. Earth’s wicked ones drink it all, drink it down to the last bitter drop! And I’m telling the story of God Eternal, singing the praises of Jacob’s God. The fists of the wicked are bloody stumps, the arms of the righteous are lofty green branches. Psalm 75 (From The Message (MSG) Copyright c 1993, 1994, 1996, 2000, 2001, 2002 by Eugene H. Peterson)

In 2014, my friend, Judy, had taken me out to eat at a local Thai restaurant. After we caught up, she shared with me about going into the courtroom of heaven to ask the Lord for just judgments and for forgiveness of family sins. I took notes and began immediately going into this courtroom in prayer. I heard another teaching by David Herzog on the same subject more recently. I hope to share more on this subject in the future. But we can ask God to intervene in our lives. Our Father is the Judge and Jesus is the Advocate or Lawyer who defends our cause against the accusing prosecutor, Satan.

The announcement of imminent judgment is not to be feared by His children who love, obey and long for Him. He wants to make judgments in our favor! “Blessed are those you chose and bring near to live in your courts! We are filled with the good things of your house, of your holy temple. You answer us with awesome deeds of righteousness, O God our Savior, the hope of all the ends of the earth and of the farthest seas…” Psalm 65:4-5 (NIV)

Our Father loves to bless His children! Many of us have been in the season of “hope deferred” which “makes the heart sick.” We are NOW entering the season of “a longing fulfilled” which “is a tree of life!” Proverbs 13:12 (NIV). Our Friend, the Fearsome Judge of Heaven and Earth, has decided that a season of reward and satisfaction is due for those who have been patiently enduring great trials and tests of their faith!

But for those who do not please the Lord and have seemingly gotten a pass to do their own thing, no matter how wrong, He is moving swiftly to clean things up! Even in this regard, He is merciful! It is far better to experience His disciplining hand, so you can change your ways, than to continue down the wrong path and suffer eternal consequences!

I took a picture of this amazing cloud formation before the most recent national elections in America. Soon after the election, I was speaking with a very dear friend, a former missionary and strong prophetic intercessor in her 80’s. She said, before the election, she was very concerned about the outcome and was praying fervently, as millions of us were! Then, she had a dream in which she saw an animal-like creature with a human head, like a centaur.

When she awoke, she asked the Lord who that creature represented. He answered, “the queen of heaven.’’ “The children gather wood, and the fathers kindle the fire, and the women knead dough to make cakes for the queen of heaven; and they pour out libations to other gods in order to spite Me.” Jeremiah 7:18 (NASB). She and I both understood that this “queen” is an ancient powerful demonic entity called a principality or ruler. “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” Ephesians 6:12 (KJV).

God revealed through other details in the dream that this entity had influenced the party that ended up losing – the party which had not favored Israel, but had supported abortion. God’s decision to favor the winning party resounded through the earth!

Another amazing insight gained from my friend’s dream is that the queen of heaven principality ITSELF obviously came under judgment from the Lord as demonstrated by the election results. About a year and a half ago, I asked the LORD which principality/demonic prince was holding up the transfer of wealth which He had promised His people in this season. {The following verses mention a transfer of wealth coming to Israel during the Millennium, but as prophecy can have several fulfillments, I believe these verses also refer to the funding of the Body of Christ in preparation for the End Time Move of God. “Then you will see and be radiant, and your heart will thrill and rejoice; because the abundance of the sea will be turned to you, the wealth of nations will come to you.” Isaiah 60:5 (NASB) “…you will be spoken of as ministers of our God. You will eat the wealth of nations and in their riches you will boast.” Isaiah 61:6 (NASB)}.

The Judge

When I awoke a few weeks later to the phrase, “the queen of heaven,” I knew instantly that the Lord had answered my question about what was holding up the wealth transfer. After that morning revelation, I read the powerful book, The Queen’s Domain: Advancing God’s Kingdom in the 40/70 Window, C. Peter Wagner, General Editor, in which a description of this evil force and its past and current strategies are delineated. I was surprised to find that since the early 2000’s, strategic prayer teams have actually been asking God to free whole regions and people groups from this prince’s power. And that they had discovered the queen of heaven was the agent holding up the transfer of wealth! In my heart, I believe the Lord is decreeing, in this season, an increased release of Kingdom resources!

If you are in obedience to the Lord, rejoice! He will begin the fulfillment of long awaited promises and dreams! If you are not, turn to Him in humble repentance. He deeply loves you! Either way, The Judge has declared the acceleration of His just judgments!

Therefore say to them, ‘Thus says the Lord God, “None of My words will be delayed any longer, whatever word I speak will be performed, declares the Lord God.” Ezekiel 12:28 (NASB)



(The day I wrote this message,  but long after I had seen the cloud and these thoughts had been percolating in my heart, I read the following article which my husband, Jeff, had printed off some time back for me from The Elijah List,  by Faith Marie Baczko: “The Judge of the Universe is Ruling in Our Favor,” Sep 17, 2016. I was stunned that she had been given a very similar message! I was also amazed that her message went out around the same time I saw the cloud. By the testimony of two or three witnesses a matter is confirmed! (2 Corinthians 13:1). You may enjoy reading her article, which can be found in The Elijah List archives at:

Welcome To My Blog – Introduction

Through The Wisteria
Shepherds Heart, Alvarado, TX

Hi! Welcome to my blog! My name is Anna Cropley. The picture to the left is what I am looking through as I write to you. Do you believe that God has a deep affection for you and wants to talk to you as a father and a friend? So do I! So I started this blog to share what He tells me, so that friends, like you, can begin to hear Him for yourselves or just add to what you are already hearing.

I hope you enjoy what you read! I will also share pictures and music, including photos that I take and songs that I write and sing. Soon, I will begin to release here, in sections and chapters, my book, The Joseph Generation: Release of the End Time Deliverers.

I believe there are a whole lot of people who have been waiting on dreams, visions and promises from God for a very long time… or so it seems when you are the one waiting! Like Joseph in the Bible, these people have had dreams from God and then they find themselves, apparently, set on the shelf. God is just about to take us down, dust us off and put us into circulation!!!!  My book basically is meant to encourage the Josephs who have been in hiding. Join me here as I share the book and other reflections from my heart! See you soon!
