On two separate days the following Word of Knowledge was spoken: “Watch”. I knew that Jesus had spoken these Words on a few occasions. While flipping my Bible’s pages to study Mark 13 as it applies to this Word this morning, two more Words of Knowledge were clearly spoken: “Believe it”.
Watch – definition: 1) look at or observe attentively over a period of time and 2) exercise care, caution, or restraint about.
“Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away. But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father. Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is. For the Son of Man is as a man taking a far journey, who left his house, and gave authority to his servants, and to every man his work, and commanded the porter (or doorkeeper) to watch. Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when the master of the house cometh, at even, or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning: Lest coming suddenly he find you sleeping. And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch. (Mark 13:31-36)
In a dream recently I was standing with a crowd somewhere. Some people were running around, filled with anxiety it seemed. As the dream ended, I saw that some of us were carrying an expensive glass bottle of Extra-Virgin Olive Oil in our right hands.
The Words of Knowledge combined with the dream might very well point to the return of the Lord and in some ways to the parable of the Ten Virgins who are also commanded to “Watch“. Although the Parable of the Ten Virgins depicts them all as sleeping at Midnight due to fatigue – the dream points to Believers who, instead, have remained steadfast in Christ and His complete plan of salvation, are awake and occupying until the He returns. They are able to carry the Lord’s anointing (olive oil) because they are born-again Believers who have prepared themselves and have endured with faith despite numerous trials. Contrariwise, those running without oil are caught up with the affairs of the flesh and of the world. They will have been running to and fro in diverse ways instead of preparing for the Lord’s return; consequently, they will have insufficient oil to meet the Bridegroom.
“And he called his ten servants, and delivered them ten pounds, and said unto them, Occupy till I come.” (Lk. 19:13)
In another vision recently, a compact suitcase with wheels was shown on my right side – the type I use when traveling by plane. Within the context of the Lord’s Return, the suitcase appears to symbolically fit the meaning of being prepared – all packed up – and ready to make the heavenly journey noted at Mk. Chapter 13 back with our Bridegroom.
“And truly, if they had been mindful of that country from whence they came out, they might have had opportunity to have returned. But now they desire a better (another) country, that is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city.” (Heb. 11:15-16)
