Dream and Interpretation

A Dream with Interpretation – Our Great, Great Responsibility – The Harvest and Discipleship

our responsibility - the harvest and discipleship

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.

The Dream

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. 

  1. 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)
  2. 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.

Jesus was Angry at the Hardness of their Hearts – A Call to Pray for the Church

Jesus was angry at the hardness of their hearts

And when He had looked around at them with anger, being grieved by the hardness of their hearts, He said to the man, “Stretch out your hand.” And he stretched it out, and his hand was restored as whole as the other.

MARK 3:5

I was just reminded of this verse this morning. The Lord loves His church but is angry about the hardness of hearts in it regarding much, including His people not taking Him for His Word to heal the sick.

In Mark 3 above, when a poor man was suffering with leprosy and Jesus wanted to heal Him and end his suffering, imagine, the people’s response to seeing someone’s suffering end was “hardness of their hearts”.

This hardness of hearts is still alive and well in much of, not all, the church today towards seeing people be healed in Jesus’ name. It’s a spiritual battle and a matter of much needed fervent prayer for the church to soften their hearts towards the sick and suffering and to obey Jesus to lay hands on the sick and see them recover.

Please join me in praying for the church to arise you sleepers and do the Word in the earth, unify, etc. so the world knows that Jesus was sent from the Father and is the Christ, the Son of the living God.

The kind of anger Jesus, our Lord felt, righteous anger, can be a motivator for change in the church. But when we are angry, we sin not, we pray and become the change God desires in the church by doing the Word even if you must walk alone in it, do it for Jesus. Of course, He doesn’t want us angry all the time, but to use it for our good to do good.

Do the Word

Reach Out. Seek the One, Says the Lord

reach out seek the one says the Lord

REACH OUT. Seek the one, says the Lord

I was talking to the Lord this morning about how far below and not in line with the Word much of the church is in many things, but this morning it was regarding simple “Jesus” kindness and love towards each other.

For example, not once but many times, I’ve known widows and single moms with fatherless children who were hurting and going through terrible things and who regularly go to church or have been home bound because of a sick child and were “invisible” to the church. People knew they were suffering, hurting, etc., and literally no one, zero brothers and sisters even reached out to even pray with them. None.

Not saying it to boast. At. All. Because, it’s simply what Word says to do but sharing because maybe it will help one church or person be the spark and change in his/her church.

On behalf of widows/single moms with fatherless children, I’ve tried to arrange home ministry visits (multiple times) with very large churches in their area as well as at least a handful of churches in their area in general, and no one was “discipled enough” in any of them to visit a widow and her sick child to minister to them. They literally said, “No, we don’t do that.” What is so heartbreaking for me to bear is that this behavior most often comes from church leadership that is supposed to know the Word better than anyone. Who is supposed to be making disciples, so the load of helping others is not on them (a few people) but on the entire discipled flock. Supposed to be.

The Word, in many places, tells us that we take an active not passive role in blessing others.

We don’t wait for them to have to beg and beg to be seen and helped. No, we love Jesus so much that we actively reach out, seek them, make sure they are okay. Need prayer, food, etc. But my observation on many occasions is that these widows and their children were mere inconveniences and not potential good donors, not important enough to them in some way to bother with them. They’d had to practically beg to be seen and heard by their brothers and sisters and shepherds and remind them of their (her and children) existence. This is utter biblical ignorance and not doing the Word.

The Word says in Isaiah 1:17, “Learn to do good; Seek justice, Rebuke the oppressor; Defend the fatherless, Plead for the widow.” 

God speaks this in command form. We actively do these things. The widow and fatherless child doesn’t have to beg to be seen, helped, ministered to, etc. NO! The church knows the Word (or should) and is very intentional about doing it and making enough disciples so all are helped and blessed among them. I’m using widows, etc. as an example here, but all brothers and sisters among the church should be cared for, about, and sought out.

Prayer

Father, again I cry out. Shake the church awake. I prophesy to the church, ARISE, you sleepers. Shake the scales and blackness off the hearts of Your people, Lord God. Set their Spirits on fire to live Your Word in Jesus’ name, amen.

When did we see You a stranger and take You in, or naked and clothe You? Or when did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?’ And the King will answer and say to them, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.’”

ESTHER 4:14

We can easily discern by what is happening in the church and what isn’t that it is far from God’s will and mostly in compromise. Everything of God – His Word, gifts, prophecy,  giving, etc. – has been twisted and abused by the enemy, driving people into further confusion and deception. Then instead of seeking Him to know His Word for themselves and what He says about matters, giving, the gifts of the Spirit many, not all, are abandoning them altogether out of disappointment, disgust, and all that the twisting His Word and way brings.

But when His Word and gifts are used as He intended, they draw people, heal them, and set them on fire to continue to co-labor with Jesus to help others for the saving of souls and setting free by the power of the Holy Spirit.

So strongly, I’ve heard the Holy Spirit say how terrible the state of the church looks to the lost and how these perversions of God’s truth are keeping them from Jesus. That’s why we must pray.

When in prayer, the Lord gave me Esther 4:14 to speak to me about pastors.

He used it to speak to me about the overall church and the lost to say if pastors today do not obey His voice or are quenching it, so they can no longer hear Him, that He will raise up others in their place. And all they think they are doing or all of God’s truth they are not speaking to “hold on to” and protect “their” church, position, salary or to prevent “members” from leaving is self-deception and will lead to the very thing they fear – losing it all.

It’s not their church, and there’s nothing they can do to hold onto it if God removes them from their position for not taking care of His sheep. For harming them, lying to and deceiving them, and withholding His truth. For not loving them and for being lovers of self.

God has been, is, and will continue to raise up others to replace every false shepherd and prophet, every wolf in sheep’s clothing with sons and daughters of thunder who don’t “look like” or “seem like” God would use them in the eyes of man. Oh, but praise God, He looks on the heart alone.

Let’s pray that every pastor, shepherd, and teacher of the Word …

Put God and His Word first no matter what. No matter if it causes a church split, no matter it offends, no matter if they lose their 501c3 status, no matter if they lose their position.

See and know that they know God is their Source alone. Not donors, etc. Him alone.

Return to their first love Jesus and always have the Lord and His namesake, His reputation, His people, and the lost in mind when they preach and teach.

Obey God as Micaiah who said in 1 Kings 22:14, “As the Lord lives, whatever the Lord says to me, that I will speak.”

Be defenders of the Word like Paul as we defend His Word out of our love for Him, His truth, and people. Everything else leads people into bondage or hell. True love speaks His truth to keep people from these things.

Fear You more than they fear man and be totally delivered from people pleasing.

Be delivered from every man-made side doctrine that adds to and takes away from the Word.

Be delivered from exalting their denominational beliefs above the Word.

Be led by the Holy Spirit.

Teach the full gospel including that the gifts (the ministry of the Holy Spirit) and healing are for today. Perverting the gospel by withholding His truth in any way very serious in the eyes of God and robbing people of freedom.

Make disciples who make disciples who make disciples.

Bow their knees and fully submit to the Lord and everything the voice of the Lord tells them or be replaced by those who will. Souls, lives, His truth and namesake are all at stake here and matter more than pastors being removed from their positions for bringing much harm to His people.

Also pray that…

Every false teacher, prophet, bowed to money and power ones, etc. be exposed and His people learn and study the Word for themselves, so they know that what they are being taught is His truth, that they not blindly accept everything they are taught, and test every spirit as many wolves abound to devour God’s flock in these times.

In Jesus’ name, amen.

One True Gospel - The One of Grace, Uncompromised Gospel

“In Your Face Paul” – The Love of God and People Cares Enough to Tell the Truth

in your face paul Gal 2 11-12-B

Now when Peter had come to Antioch, I withstood him to his face, because he was to be blamed; for before certain men came from James, he would eat with the Gentiles; but when they came, he withdrew and separated himself, fearing those who were of the circumcision. And the rest of the Jews also played the hypocrite with him, so that even Barnabas was carried away with their hypocrisy.

GALATIANS 2:11-13

Out of the passionate love for his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, the true gospel of grace, and his brothers and sisters, Paul got in Peter’s face for bowing to those who were mixing the law and grace.

Hmmm. That doesn’t sound like a loving Christ follower according to the standards of some today. I beg to differ. Like Paul, our passionate love for God, the truth of His Word, and the love of our brothers and sisters should compel us to defend His truth no matter how much it may offend.

Paul didn’t want them to re-enter into even one letter of the law and the bondage it brings. A law no one could ever keep. The fire of God’s love for them in him corrected  them and implored them to rest in the finished work of Jesus Christ and to stop preaching two gospels.

Jesus fulfilled every letter of the law, and it is an affront to all He did for us to mix even a letter of the law into justification by faith alone in Christ and His death and resurrection for the forever atonement of our sins.

I marvel that you are turning away so soon from Him who called you in the grace of Christ, to a different gospel, which is not another; but there are some who trouble you and want to pervert the gospel of Christ. But even if we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel to you than what we have preached to you, let him be accursed. As we have said before, so now I say again, if anyone preaches any other gospel to you than what you have received, let him be accursed,” Galatians 1:6-10.

No mealy-mouthed, marshmallow foo-foo talk here by Paul. I see much of the church talking around the truth, which is technically a lie, because they are unwilling, and quite frankly don’t love God and people enough to speak His truth and defend it.

He tells them they are perverting the gospel and anyone who preaches anything but the one true gospel should be accursed.

Some ways churches pervert the gospel today by continuing to mix the law and grace (or new man-made laws they’ve concocted) to continue to keep His people in bondage and oppression.

Continue to preach the tithe is required and say things like, “That’s why your financed are cursed because you don’t give the full 10% of your gross income.” Speaking of gross, this is a blatant manipulation of God’s Word, a perversion of the gospel, a mixing of law and grace to ensure they collect the money to pay their salaries and bills. The tithe was part of the law which Jesus fulfilled. We are now called to be cheerful givers. This should be confronted by the people in any church this is being taught just as Paul did.

Teach that one can “lose our salvation.” This is one of the most hideous attacks on the blood of Jesus. I’ve seen comments from unbelievers who’ve said, “Why should I choose Jesus because if I mess up, I’ll go to hell anyway?” People take perversions of the gospel too lightly and few are confronting them as Paul did. Hebrews 10:14 says, “For by one offering He has perfected forever those who are being sanctified.” Period. Amen.

One truly born again cannot become unborn again. They are perfected forever by one offering. The blood of Jesus is enough. It is finished. Those in Christ have had every letter of the law fulfilled for them by Jesus by faith alone. Once in Christ, God Himself immediately seals us for all eternity and is sanctifying us from glory to glory.

“God puts sickness on His children to teach them a lesson.” Hogwash! I spit on those words and lies against my Lord Jesus Christ. Okay, I just heard myself say that in a Russian accent. This lie too is the mixing of law and grace. Jesus redeemed us from the curse of the law. Period. One of the curses of disobeying the law was sickness, and if Jesus redeemed us from all the curses if the law this includes sickness. Because of Jesus, if we get sick, we can pray believing to be healed because since He fulfilled the law, the blessings of Abraham were also made available to us.

Churches who teach God puts sickness on us to teach us a lesson, though we are under grace, are teaching that Christ didn’t really fulfill the law. They are suffering from “the gospel of grace is just to good to be true” syndrome and feel compelled, under the influence of a demonic, religious spirit, to put the law back on people and teach this lie against God. 1 Peter 2:24 says, Jesus “who Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, having died to sins, might live for righteousness—by whose stripes you were healed.” Our Lord Jesus atoned for our sins, to deliver us from the entire law, and so we could be healed in every way, including from sickness.

Regarding sickness and disease, this makes me wonder (not conclude) about when Paul says in Galatians 1:9, “Now I say again, if anyone preaches any other gospel to you than what you have received, let him be accursed,” that the reason why many believers get sick and stay sick is because they’ve accursed themselves by preaching another gospel (with the law) that teaches God makes His children sick to teach them a lesson for His glory (which is found nowhere in the gospels and is totally opposite of Him fully delivering us from the curse of the law).

Notice I said, “accursed themselves.” By choosing to preach a false gospel by their own free will, could they be accursing themselves by doing so? I will be seeking the Lord more in His Word and in prayer about this revelation that just came to me as I was writing this.

Categorizing sins as greater than the blood of Jesus or calling things sin that are not. E.g. blaming those divorced as, “You get what you deserve,” or “Sorry, you can no longer minister here.”

Does God hate divorce? Yes, because it’s a form of death and greatly hurts all involved. It’s a terrible and tragic thing. But His Word makes provision for it as well as remarriage as long as it’s a legal divorce* and not merely a separation. With a legal certificate of divorce, remarriage is not sin. I must add that we should try everything possible to avoid divorce. But sometimes, it’s not possible, not wise, or even safe to stay married because of adultery and/or abuse.

Sadly, religious men continue to add to the Word and act as the law, taking it upon themselves to elevate divorce and insist people still be punished, condemned, shunned, and excluded, etc. by them. Punishing them for even what God is not. Jesus paid it all.

Those in Christ have all their sins forgiven – past, present, and future (Hebrews 10:14). That’s grace. Unfortunately, there are many other ways today’s churches mix the law and grace or come up with laws they’ve created to add to or take away from the one true gospel.

“But now we are delivered from the law, that being dead wherein we were held; that we should serve in newness of spirit, and not in the oldness of the letter,” Romans 7:6

The words of this post are also a call to pray, to fervently cry out for the church and its shepherds, and for ‘Pauls’ to rise up and defend His Word out of love of God and people, for His namesake and for the sake of the lost who are watching and are being driven or kept away by perverted gospels.

Prayer

Father, burn away every false gospel upon the face of the earth and draw every church, every shepherd, every child of Yours back unto Your one true gospel of grace – the finished work of Jesus Christ on behalf of all who’ve confessed Your Son’s name in Jesus’ name, amen.

*Transparency. I edited the categorizing sins, etc section because I knew the section category and example I wanted to use but went back because I felt I needed to reword the explanation better.
