Yesterday, during waking hours that is, I was very disturbed, but not surprised, by the many comments attacking a brother (by his brothers/sisters) about how God uses people to accomplish His will. To the effect of mutual dependence – We need and are totally dependent on God, and He uses His children to accomplish His will in the earth. Totally biblical.
Well, heads exploded, and needless to say, our brothers was called a false teacher, etc. Their biblical ignorance and words were great indicators as to why much of the church is so passive. They believe God’s will is just going to happen automatically and for everything in the earth without the work of obedient saints. They gave no thought to the Word of God nor did they pray and seek Him before they pounced and pummeled.
But, blessed are we when we are hated for Jesus’ sake. And if our brother is a mature believer, then none of their verbal attacks phased him. But it was a sad indicator of the state of the church – the part that is passive and lukewarm.
The most basic and obvious example of God’s will being accomplished through man, and God “needing” and using man to bring His will to pass is the sharing of the gospel. Jesus did the work to make salvation, healing, etc. possible, but once He finished His work, He charged us with the great calling and responsibility to be His mouth, hands, and feet upon the earth to GO! To open our mouths and share His Word and will for the saving of souls, the healing of the sick, etc. To disciple other believers to do the same.
This isn’t blasphemy or false teaching. It’s plainly the Word. Jesus ascended and now needs us to do His work in the earth. Very clear and simple. If His people don’t share the gospel, He’s not coming in the flesh now to do so, He won’t do it unless it’s through us. Period.
I was in a school classroom sitting in a child’s desk, but I was my current age. There was a child sitting next to me in his desk, and I was dictating names to him to write in the Bible.
God gave me the interpretation
The Word says in Revelation 21:27, “But there shall by no means enter it anything that defiles, or causes an abomination or a lie, but only those who are written in the Lamb’s Book of Life.”
The Lord told me that the immature believer would read this interpretation and gnash their teeth because I, a human being, was telling a child whose names to write in the Bible, but the mature in Christ would immediately see and discern it’s because we are the ones responsible, the ones God uses to open our mouths, SO THAT it’s EVEN POSSIBLE for their names to be written there.
And wow, Lord! The Bible, the Word if God is Jesus (John 1:1;14), so every time the child wrote a person’s name in it, he was writing it on Jesus Himself.
The setting was a school because the child was someone I was discipling and teaching in His ways. Teaching a child the great, great responsibility of His children – the harvesting of souls and making disciples (as in actively teaching them to be the mouth, hands, and feet of Jesus). Not passive, pew warmers with an EXTREME sovereignty of God doctrine that causes the spiritually blind to believe they can sit back and do nothing and God does everything. Now THAT’S a false teaching that needs to be cut off the face of the earth in the name of Jesus!
Two parts of the dream I still need interpretation for. Maybe He will show you and you can comment below.
- In the dream, I just knew that the child “missed school” pretty frequently. I know it’s not related to church attendance. I will continue to pray and ask the Lord, but it may have to do with so many false teachings out there. Lots of confusion created by the many doctrines in the church? (see 1:05 PM update below)
- I told the boy to write the names in specific places in the Word. Something related to the first letter of their name. So alphabetic somehow. Might be something we only learn of when we see it literally when we are with Jesus.

I asked the Lord, “Why I was sitting in a child’s desk and not as the teacher since I am discipling?” I am crying so hard. And He said, “Because you are still my child. I AM your Teacher, the Teacher. I’m the head. The head of the class. You are still learning. Still my work in progress but even as a child of Mine, you are able to be used to teach my other children.
I can barely see through my tears right now. This word and interpretation is a call for all His children who are willing to answer His call.
LOL, Father! I know You’re the One who led me by Your Spirit to even ask this question. I am slain. I am weeping by the Spirit. I had to stop typing.

The child missing school pretty frequently has nothing to do with the child but with in lack of availability of those willing to teach the true gospel and willing to make disciples. It’s about us failing the “child” not the child not doing his part.
My additional comment on this, my best Teacher has been and always will be the Holy Spirit, but this particular dream is mainly about the responsibility of His children to do His will in the earth and many false teachings in the church that keep His children from seeing that responsibility. Many are passive, teach passivity, and do nothing.
Always a call to pray for the church
Father, shake Your bride awake. Lead them into all truth my Your Holy Spirit that we are called to be Your mouth, hands, feet, etc. in the earth. That You use Your children to accomplish Your will in the earth. The gospel doesn’t share itself, etc. We must also be praying people who pray, “Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.” We are to be making disciples – through mentoring, teaching, writing, and however You show us to. Give Your people a Holy Spirit revelation of our great, great responsibility in Jesus’ name, amen.
