Last week I had a dream that is resurfacing and which might be pointing to a significant event. For this reason, I am taking the liberty of posting it in today’s blog. Until a confirmation is received, the interpretation will be withheld.
In this dream I look in one direction and saw a number of unusual looking aircraft; they could have been military in nature. They were all moving in one direction while hovering above a large body of water. Next, I am sitting in a car of some kind (symbolic of a destination) with someone whose presence is related to New Wine. I tell this one to not let go of my hand and began fervently praying the Lord’s Prayer because I am aware that something big is about to happen. Suddenly, during the prayer I felt myself being lifted up in the air. It was so real, that I actually felt the movement of being lifted up in real life. And that is how the dream ended.
Parts of the following dream have been posted previously in this blog. But the dream, in its entirety, was not. Yesterday it was brought up for discussion and I felt moved to publish it again, but this time, in its entirety. So much could be said but for the sake of brevity, only salient points will be addressed.
Looking Out Of A Window: 1996
In this dream, I am standing inside a house which intersects at a corner of a street called 7th Street and another one called Balsam. It has a large window through which I am looking. It is dark outside and it is getting increasingly darker. A snow plow could be seen traveling from a western direction to the east on 7th street and plowing what appeared to be snow. At one point I heard a voice say: “Close the Curtains.” I do so. A little time later, light is seen filtering through the white curtains. As though it was my cue to do so, I return to the window and open the curtains. But this time there was no more darkness. Instead I saw the most spectacular scene. My entire field of vision was bright blue – the deepest neon blue as far as the eye can see. A herculean size and brilliant cross of bright white light intersected the sky from all directions. It intersected in the middle and reached infinitely from left to right (east and west) and infinitely again from top to bottom (north and south). If you can visualize it, the cross squared what appeared to be the sky into four perfect blue squares.
Connecting the Interpretive Dots
Looking through the window is symbolic of seeing through the lens of the Spirit and in this case, it is also seeing real events taking place in the outside world. The snow plow might or might not be symbolic. It could point to a season. And it could represent evangelistic ministries working through the time of the last and final harvest (7 is a number biblically associated with completion.) My favorite part: the brilliant white cross – it symbolizes redemption and its light symbolizes truth and resurrection power. It represents a work that will affect everyone at the four corners of the world. It is primarily indicative of the Lord Jesus Christ Who is the Light of the world and Who has overcome the works of darkness through His shed blood on the Cross. Indeed, He came as a Lamb to destroy the works of the devil on the Cross and He will return like a Lion to expel satanic darkness from this fallen world. Isaiah prophesied that darkness will cover the earth. (Is. 60:2). So much so that seeing the gross evil that will manifest in coming days in the world will not be fit for the saints of GOD. Remember Lot’s wife!
Arise and shine, for your light is come, and the glory of the Lord is risen upon you. For behold the darkness shall cover the earth and gross darkness the people; but the LORD shall arise upon you, and His Glory shall be seen upon you. (Is. 60:1-2)
Is this Cross of Light “the sign of the Son of Man” prophesied by the Lord to appear in the sky at the time of the great ‘Harpazo’ ? A term which has been coined in more modern times as ‘The Rapture’ ? (Lk. 21:28; 2 Thess. 4:16-18). Or is this related to the timing of Jesus’ Second Coming after seven years of tribulation when He establishes His millennial reign? I cannot ascertain. But one thing is certain! The Lord is returning and He is coming to establish and implement His Kingdom on earth!
Clues in Matthew 24
Immediately **after** the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken. **Then ** the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven (Is this the Cross that was shown? It’s very possible!) and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And He will send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they will gather together His elect from the four winds(4 corners of the world) from one end of heaven to the other (Angels of His Light traveling from east to west and north and south forming this great Brilliant Cross? ) (Mat. 24:29-31)
What To Do Now
My goodness! If you are not a Believer, I invite you to give your heart to the Lord, to repent of all sins and live a holy and righteous life without which no one will see GOD! If you are a Backslider, it is never too late to ask the Lord for mercy and forgiveness. Scriptures teach that GOD sometimes seals His instructions in dreams. (Job 33:15-17). And this dream is not just happenstance; the Lord is confirming His Holy Spirit inspired Word.(1 Cor. 12:7-8) We are living in precious days of grace. And the gospel of salvation and deliverance must be preached to prepare the people before the Lord Jesus Christ returns. Until such a time, it behooves us to occupy and fulfill this mission in whatever ways we are called and guided to do. Praise GOD and thank you Lord.
More Scriptural Clues
And he called his ten servants, and delivered them ten pounds, and said unto them, Occupy till I come. (Lk. 19:13)
Watchtherefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come. But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief 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, to give them meat (spiritual food/provision/freely we have received, freely we are called to give) in due season? Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh 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 fellow servants, 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. (Mat. 24:42-51)
Because this dream was shown in such amazing living colors and in an indelible fashion, I believe this great cosmic and supernatural event is to be shared as a testimony. (It is noteworthy that something took place this year which points to an occurrence in the dream that would place the timing just before I am told to close the curtains. )
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, 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 of the house had known in what watch the thief 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. (Mat. 24:36-44)
A Project Under Construction – A Dream (February 2, 2023 in the morning.)
I find myself standing inside a very large, expansive and unusual house that is under construction. Someone by the name of Michael who is the owner and contractor of this project is there and is overseeing the work. He appears to be a man but I cannot be sure. Other men (?) are with him; they are talking amongst themselves and it appears as though they are scheduling the work that is under progress. I look around and observe tall pillars, crossbeams and everything else that I am guessing is typically involved in construction of this genre. But this house has a different architecture. It looks somewhat archaic but it is also new. At this point I realize I am standing on what seems to be the second floor and looking into different rooms. At the end of this lofty house with high ceiling is a room of stored provisions and food. I rationalized that Michael must be stocking up for a coming famine. Next, I go downstairs to the main floor via a large staircase on the right side. From there I look up and observe a large curved panel of newly installed rich-looking spindles at the edge of the second floor which has an open design at the front. A few more things took place which must remain private.
When I woke up from the dream, I immediately thought this was an Ark similar to Noah’s Ark which would explain the archaic feeling. But an Ark that is still under construction, that is supernatural and which is being prepared for the people. But. I strongly sensed – knew – that not all the people were well prepared. And with this knowing also came the realization that more time is still needed for the Ark to be completed and for the people to make themselves ready. As I thought about all this, a Word of confirmation was softly spoken.
Michael’s name means “He Who Is Like God” In the Old Testament, he might well have been the Angel who had the name of GOD in Him. I am presupposing that Michael is most likely the Angel of GOD who led the chosen people during the Exodus into the place that was being prepared for them. Much like the Ark is presently being prepared to guide a chosen people to safety. Michael is also known to be the Archangel over Israel, the great captain, leader of the heavenly hosts and the great warrior who helped the children of Israel during battle. We read about Him again in the Book of Revelation during the last great battle as one who overcomes Satan through the blood of the Lamb along with his angels who send him hurling ‘down.’ (Rev. 12:7-8, 12). Clearly, the roles of the Angel in Exodus and Archangel Michael are strikingly similar:
Behold, I send an Angel before thee, to keep thee in the way, and to bring thee into the place which I have prepared. Beware of him, and obey his voice, provoke him not; for he will not pardon your transgressions: for my name is in him. But if thou shalt indeed obey his voice, and do all that I speak; then I will be an enemy unto thine enemies, and an adversary unto thine adversaries. (Ex. 23:21-22)
When Jesus Christ returns, He comes with a shout and with the Voice of the Archangel. (1 Thess. 4:16). That this Archangel is Michael who is actively preparing a great Ark with his angels under Christ’s leadership merits serious consideration.
A Great Time of Preparation
Great preparations are underway in the heavenly realms. Heaven is rejoicing as it is being restructured and cleansed of satanic influence. And with it a time of great difficulty as Satan and his legions are hurled down here on this planet. Prophet Daniel prophesied that it would be an unprecedented time of upheaval. But GOD has a plan for HIS people! HE always does! And HE always finishes what HE starts! It’s been noted previously in other messages that to protract a great design is to put it in jeopardy. Don’t put off until tomorrow what needs doing today. All are called to live a righteous and holy life. (Heb. 12:14) I encourage you to open your heart and repent if there needs to be repentance. Come to the ever merciful Lord Jesus Christ for salvation. There is no other way to board this Ark without being redeemed by the blood of the Lamb! Time is running and it waits for no man.
Keep the Faith. With praise, glory and thanksgiving to the Lord.
And because iniquity (lawlessness) shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come. (Mat. 25:12-14)
The following Word of Knowledge Declare was spoken following a dream from a few days ago.
Chaoson the Outside
We are standing inside somewhere with a locked door. I am aware that behind the door, there is a great deal of commotion happening. Houses and apartments are being looted. Crime is rampant and fear is in the air. I hear a man who is on the inside with us reciting out loud verses from the Bible. He is is repeating, over and over again, verses that call for the people to love GOD. It was clear that he was quoting the two great Love commandments given by Jesus Christ. (Two simple commandments that encapsulates and codifies the ten commandments.) Next, a woman takes a 5-gallon bottle of purified water and throws it out the window to the people below on the outside.
What It Means
I believe this dream reflects the days of lawlessness that Jesus prophesied would take place during these latter days. Days when even those on the inside; meaning those who are separate from the outside world (locked door) (Ps. 3:3; 2 Cor. 6:17) are feeling the vulnerability of danger and fear. But those who know the Word know the solution to ward off fear. Love! This is not love as we know it here on earth, this is GOD’S pure divine love and truth. It is Love that strengthens and removes all fear. And it is love that endures! (Spoken Word of Knowledge)
Purified water is biblicaly symbolic of the operations of the Holy Spirit made available through the finished works of Jesus Christ sent by our FATHER to destroy the works of the devil. The number five is related to HIS grace and grace multiplied. (Jn. 1:16) Significantly, and to remain within the scope of this message, the Ten Commandments contain a multiplication of two sets of five commandments. The first set of five relates mostly to our intimate and personal relationship with GOD. The other set of five (the 5-gallon bottle of water) concerns relationships with others (the outside world). And those trapped and lost in this fallen world have certainly lost sight of GOD and HIS godly instructions!
Altogether it means that pure water (the operations of the Holy Spirit) is at work through faithful Believers. And it has the power to help provide deliverance to the lost but also to destroy enemies. (Gen. 6:17, Ex. 14:1-15:21.) It follows that despite the chaos, danger and the fear that many are feeling, some in the Body (the Woman) will continue to spread the message of Grace in salvation and of the Kingdom to the outside world. And it will be effectively accomplished through the Holy Spirit because these called out ones have been infused with the power of GOD’S Holy Spirit, Word and Love! In brief, the dream conveyed that regardless of how dark things are and will increasingly become, Jesus’ commandments of Love are called to remembrance. In this GOD’S Will and Purpose for evangelism will be fulfilled until the end comes.
Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets. (Mat. 12:30-31)
He that receiveth you receiveth me, and he that receiveth me receiveth him that sent me. He that receiveth a prophet in the name of a prophet (a true prophet) shall receive a prophet’s reward; and he that receiveth a righteous man in the name of a righteous man shall receive a righteous man’s reward. And whosoever shall give to drink unto one of these little ones a cup of cold wateronly in the name of a disciple, verily I say unto you, he shall in no wise lose his reward. (Mat. 10:40-42)
There is no fear in love; but perfect love (only GOD is Perfect and is Love combined with Truth) casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love (GOD at work in us; the importance of abiding, relying and trusting HIM regardless of all situations and conditions.) (1 Jn. 4:18)
Recommended Reading: 1 Jn. Chapters 3, 4 and 5.
Keep the Faith. And may the Love of GOD fuel your Faith today!
Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you. Nevertheless do not rejoice in this, that the spirits are subject to you, but rather rejoice because your names are written in heaven. In that hour Jesus rejoiced in the Spirit and said, “I thank You, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that You have hidden these things from the wise and prudent and revealed them to babes. Even so, Father, for so it seemed good in Your sight. All things have been delivered to Me by My Father, and no one knows who the Son is except the Father, and who the Father is except the Son, and the one to whom the Son wills to reveal Him.” (Lk. 10:19-22)
More than Twenty + Years Ago
It is noteworthy that at the time of this dream or vision, my understanding of scriptural knowledge was very limited. Indeed, at that time I was like a newborn babe in the infancy stages of spiritual development and understanding. And twenty + years later, I still remain awestruck at how GOD our FATHER reveals HIS Word (Prophetic: Spoken Word of Knowledge). HE truly is an omnipotent GOD WHO knows and sees the end from the beginning. And, indeed, at the end the last shall be first with Him in the Light because He is the First and the Last! (Gen. 1:3; Mat. 20:16; Rev. 13:8; Is. 44:6; Rev. 22:13)
Suddenly (as though I were plopped somewhere) I find myself standing in front of two very large, ornately-carved doors made of a very rich type of wood. I remember thinking: “What is this place?” Because the doors were opened and inviting, I felt no intimidation entering but still marveled at the setting of what appeared to be perhaps a large and prestigious office. But despite its prestige this was, by no means, an ordinary office. A large desk made of deep rich wood rested in the middle of this room along with a chair. I thought to myself whoever owns this office is one VIP! (Very Important Person) There were other things to see but my attention was drawn to this desk. On the surface rested an open book that appeared to be a registry of some kind. The lined pages were that bright white often seen in visions and dreams. And that is when I saw that names had been elegantly handwritten, one below the other, with bright glowing blue ink.
A Living Book
It was eventually understood that the Lamb’s Book of Life had been shown in symbolic form. To note that the office, desk and chair (throne) belonged to a VIP is an understatement. To be sure! White represents the Lamb’s holiness, His righteousness, His Light! The bright blue ink represents the sky, the heavens and a color related to the Holy Spirit. To be clear, the written names belonged to people on earth who had found salvation, righteousness, holiness in Jesus Christ and who had been born-again of the Spirit through Him.
Question: So why after all these years is this vision or dream posted? Answer: Because it is still a timely testimony of GOD’S Word. And hopefully it will benefit whoever reads it. (Hab. 2:2-3) Because the end of the list of names had been shown, it was understood that it represented the last generation on earth. This is us; this is our time! And time, as we humanly understand it, is running out. With that in mind, this message is posted to encourage everyone about the importance of repentance. Of being saved by the Lamb, Jesus Christ, through His complete plan of salvation. To receive and be washed by His Word and His Holy Spirit. And to be born again in and through Him in order to overcome the flesh, the world and the devil. We are at the end and a new beginning is dawning! Let us make haste to be found worthy. To be found righteous. To keep our salvation secured! To be Overcomers! To not have our names blotted out of The Book of Light: The Book of Life! But to spiritually live now a Kingdom Life on earth where GOD and the Lamb reign and rule in us, and eventually to live in those eternal heavenly dimensions of Light! (1 Cor. 3:16-17; Gen. 1:3; Rev. 21:23)
You have a few names even in Sardis who have not defiled their garments; and they shall walk with Me in white, for they are worthy. He who overcomes shall be clothed in white garments, and I will not blot out his name from the Book of Life; but I will confess his name before My Father and before His angels. “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.” ’ (Rev. 3:4-6) (Cf. Ps. 69:28)
Nicodemus said to Him, “How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter a second time into his mother’s womb and be born?” Jesus answered, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.‘ (A new and born again life in Him!) (Jn. 3:3-7)
Keep the Faith. Believe (Spoken Word of Knowledge)
In a dream yesterday someone is knocking at my door. Before opening, I looked through a large window and noticed that there is snow outside (that is the case here in real life. ) At the door stood a crowd of people either looking for someone or for something.
The crowd represents people interested in seeking GOD’S truth – the unbelievers, the lost and the lukewarm. The window is a spiritual lens of understanding to the outside world. And finally the snow means that the fields (the world) are white to harvest during these present and latter days of changes and upheaval. (Mat 13:38; Jn 4:35)
In brief, this means that those who have been in the stages of preparation are ready to minister the Gospel of the Good News in the field which is the world. In this case, seekers will be drawn to seek those whom the Lord will guide them to find. But! I am also seeing a large moving truck: A multi-wheeled rig that symbolizes a work and a strong ministry that will be on the move as well. So a mix of both! (smile) Praise GOD with thanksgiving always.
This morning after waking up, I fell back to sleep briefly. During this time, the following dream unfolded. A woman sitting at a table is meticulously cutting her food with an ‘Exacto’ knife. With fork raised in the air, I see that she is eating chicken which has been dipped in an appetizing, seasoned and flavorful sauce. End of dream.
For everyone who partakes only of milk is unskilled in the word of righteousness, for he is a babe. But solid foodbelongs to those who are of full age, that is, those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil. (Heb. 5:13-14)
Weaned from Milk
The dream was immediately understood. The woman, whose Hebrew name means ‘GOD is merciful’ and “Gracious gift of GOD’, represents those in the Body of Christ who are ‘mercifully and graciously’ redeemed by the finished works of Jesus Christ. The meat represents the deep (I am hearing: Profound) meaning of the Word; whereas, the Exacto knife represents the ability to cut and divide the Word appropriately and with precision.
The dream furthermore means that some Believers have grown, have matured, have been weaned from the milk (basics) of the Word and have progressed to meat (profound substance) in order to discern good from evil. Interestingly and meaningfully, knowing good from evil was GOD’S command to Adam in the garden following Satan’s beguilement and deception. Then the LORD God said, “Behold, the man has become like one of Us, to know good and evil. (Discernment) And now, lest he put out his hand and take also of the tree of life (Wisdom contained in the Word and through the Holy Spirit.) and eat, and live forever.(Complete plan of redemption; abundant life and eternal life through the Lord Jesus Christ who is the Tree of Life! Subsequent to the fall in the Garden,GOD had already established a plan to succor man from his earthly entrapment.)” (Gen. 3:22).
So much can be said about this topic but, once again, much too extensive to include in one message. The Church is called to take time out and study the Word. It is called to partake of the deeper substance of the Word in order to discern right from wrong during these critical days of immorality, deception, apostasy and lawlessness. And the matured Church is called to share this knowledge for the benefit of those who are still in the infancy stages of spiritual development and understanding.
Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing (with precision) the word of truth. (2 Tim. 2:15)
And I (Jesus) say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. (Mat. 16:18)
A Tall Mountain
A dream took place months ago that keeps surfacing. When that happens, it is recognized that it is meant to be shared for the benefit of all.
I am standing somewhere looking to my right side towards a tall rocky mountain. Around the entire mountain is a narrow road that spirals all the way to the top. The narrow road is vertically divided in two: half is made of some kind of silver-colored metal and the other half is composed of the same material as the mountain. Suddenly and surprisingly, I find myself standing at the top of this tall mountain. How did I get here so fast I thought? In front of me is a broken wired mesh gate; it was barely hanging on to one hinge. Someone had forcefully broken through this gate. At this point in the dream came the realization that there were others here and it was them that broke through the gate. End of dream.
The New Kingdom
The mountain is biblically symbolic of a kingdom – in this case, it is the New Kingdom. And although Jesus paved the way for us to freely enter in, it does not always come easy. In fact, it can be a veritable battle and an outright throw down!
After they had preached the gospel to that city and had made many disciples, they returned to Lystra and to Iconium and to Antioch, strengthening the souls of the disciples, encouraging them to continue in the faith (Jesus’ Disciples are called to continuously keep the Faith!) and saying,“Through many tribulations we must enter the kingdom of God.” (Acts. 14:21-22)
Paul wisely instructed that although Jesus secured our salvation, a Believer still has a participatory role to fulfill in order to enter the Kingdom. (Cf. Phil. 1:6) Jesus, furthermore, instructed that the road leading to life is narrow and few there be that find it and enter therein. (Mat. 7:14) Without doubt, keeping the faith in the Lord and His finished works is critical for Believers walking on the narrow pathway leading to the New Kingdom. Tragically, many have and many more will discouragingly backslide – some even merrily – all the way down the mountain on the spiral metal slide that runs parallel to the road. Apostle Paul and Jesus’ instructions, in combination with the dream, ascertain that Overcomers cannot escalate and enter the New Kingdom without enduring Faith in the Lord and His finished works.
Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling. (Phil. 2:12)
A Fight to the Death
And from the days of John the Baptist until now the Kingdom of Heaven suffers violence and the violent take it by force. (Mat. 11:12)
Presently, Satan is intensifying his attack on Believers because he knows the Lord’s return and coming is imminent. A return that is coupled with the greatest time of judgment ever to befall the wicked. And it is a threat to his (I am hearing: agenda) which includes tripping and garnering as many lost souls as he can to inhabit his global kingdoms. The battle will get increasingly difficult in coming days as he seeks to spiritually and even physically snuff the life out of the faithful ones. So was the case when the great Prophet John the Baptist walked the earth. And so was the case with Jesus when He took dominion away from Satan in order to make the New Kingdom available to us. It is a spiritual kingdom for now, a heavenly kingdom when we physically expire and an earthly kingdom to come!
Be encouraged today in knowing that many more faithful like you who are making their way up have also endured many battles (I am hearing:hardships). Some might even have temporarily fallen but they never gave up! They persevered in the faith, walked tightly on the rough narrow pathway and violently pressed through the obstructive gate of personal breakthroughs. They have finally arrived at the top and are actively resting in Christ. (A dichotomous way of explaining that in the Kingdom inertia cannot coexist with life.) In brief, it wasn’t easy for them. And in consideration of the prophetic timetable when Satan is attempting to implement his global kingdoms, neither will it be easy for Believers in coming days.
Jesus declared that in the Kingdom of Heaven the least is greater than even the great Prophet John the Baptist. (Mat. 11:11) We can only presently imagine what that will be like! But for now and wherever on the spiritual mountain we are situated, it is time to pull up the bootstraps of Faith and climb with renewed vigor and determined strength. We will be so glad and blessed that we did.
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.
Two night’s ago, I was awakened with the following Words: “Get Ready”.
In a dream yesterday I found myself warning – asking – a woman if she had brought her animals into her house. When I returned to go back home, I noticed that the ground was already saturated with water. A deluge or heavy rain storm was coming.
After the dream I thought about Noah’s story and how GOD called the animals to board the ark. Noah did as was instructed; he provided shelter and provision for the animals and his family. Thousands of years later, Jesus declared in Holy Writ that the end times which coincide with His Return would be like the days of Noah.
I do not know what is fixing to happen – Another challenging winter? The Lord’s Return? An earthly cataclysm? A Great Miracle? Increasing days of sorrow? Neither do I know – nor anyone else – the day and the hour of the Lord’s return for His Bride as declared by Jesus in Matthew Chapter 24. But at the same time, Jesus nonetheless told His followers, in this same Chapter, to watch and get ready. And considering that unprecedented days of sorrow precede His appearing and the great tribulation, it bears repeating: Be Prepared and Be Ready! Not only spiritually for His Return but also prepared and ready provisionally for your family including the animals GOD has entrusted into your care. As always, because we are located in different areas around the globe, I encourage you to seek guidance from the Holy Spirit, the Word and common sense.
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, 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 of the house had known in what watch the thief 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. (Mat. 24:36-44)
