In the early morning hours I experienced a lengthy dream. I woke up a couple of times, would fall back asleep and then go right back into it. A flood was coming and it was very, very close. The water had risen inches away from people’s houses. Some people appeared somewhat alarmed, others not so much as they were going about their own business. As people evacuated their houses, thieves entered and looted their belongings. Then the water rose to the streets and I saw stalled vehicles and it was questionable if the people would make their way out of these rising waters. It was obvious that a big flood was in the making.
Noah and the Days of Wickedness
It’s interesting that I experienced another dream recently involving a deluge akin to Noah’s flood (Job 33:15-16 – dream appended below). Certainly the reason for that is understandable considering the prevailing evil of our present days. Several generations after Adam, wickedness had caused God to regret having created mankind. To clear the slate, He resolved that a flood would destroy evil including all creatures except for Noah his family and paired animals. And so a new and fresh beginning took place. But God said He would never again destroy the earth with a flood. And yet here we are again, eons of ages later, and evil still abounds. It follows that this dream must be symbolic.
A flood – symbolically destructive from a fleshly and worldly perspective – might facilitate salvation, sanctification and new beginnings not only in this world but also gloriously in heaven if it comes from the Lord. But, the enemy also comes in like a flood. And if people are not found watching, waiting and prepared, their houses are not secured. Thieves will unexpectedly break in and loot their belongings. In brief, it means they will suffer great loss. Either way, this dream points to the importance of having our houses (everybody – all of us) prepared and ready for whatever happens, spiritually and physically. (1 Cor. 13:16-17)
Be Ready At Any Hour
This dream points to events destined to occur pending the return of the Lord. And though no one knows the day nor the hour of His coming, it might be more imminent than we know considering biblical timelines and telling signs. Significantly in Matthew Chapter 24, Jesus instructed that His return would parallel the days of Noah. He starkly and prophetically warned:
But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only. But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage (the nonchalant people in the dream going about their own business) until the day that Noe entered into the ark. And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left. Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left. Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come. But know this, that if the goodman (owners- us) of the house (our spiritual habitation) had known in what watch the thief (looters) would come, *he would have watched* and would not have suffered his house to be broken up. Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh. Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over His household (His Church collectively but also Believers uniquely (1 Pet. 4:17; 1 Cor. 3:16-17; Ps. 91:9-16) to give them meat in due season? (faithful servants of the Gospel – the work must go on!) Blessed is that servant, *whom his lord when he cometh* (His Return) shall find so doing. Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all his goods. But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming; And shall begin to smite his fellowservants, and to eat and drink with the drunken; The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of, And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. (Mat. 24:36-50)
While wondering if I should post this dream, the Word: “Share” was spoken.
