I just had a dream that I think pertains to the “big picture” so to speak. I don’t feel alarm from this dream, more that it was the Lord showing me what was going on.
I was in a familiar old small town I used to live in – the kind where everyone knows everyone almost – and there was this long time community cafe downtown where all the local business folk would go, just like in a typical town, with the big glass windows. The downstairs was the cafe and there were 2 stories on top of that.
I was with someone whom I feel represented the Holy Spirit as a friend, and as I walked by this old cafe building with some business offices on one side of it, I saw that the building was getting ready for demolition. There was was a hill behind it and I asked if they were going to remove that too and they said “yes, to make it a level playing field.”
I looked at the building and saw that it was very dark brown, and made of wood and stones mixed together with mortar, and it was wearing out (the wood was rotting) and getting old and needed to be replaced. I also saw that the top story of the building had been cut all the way around and it was turned a little bit, like it was about to be removed. (I felt in the interpretation the Lord saying He was starting at the top of man’s structure.)
There was this big crane with a wrecking ball and it was getting positioned to come whack the building but as it lowered the ball, it hit this black lady walking down the street. My Holy Spirit friend and I rushed over to her but she was going to be okay and we got her into a wheelchair to take her home. (I felt like she was part of the new thing, representing something different, since so many of us here are white with the “white” mindset. It’s just our demographics. When I lived in Houston, we were very mixed.)
I fussed at the people in the office for not being more careful and I feel like now that this is the Lord telling me that revival will not be without incidents. We took the lady on to her home nearby on 17th Street, which was by a university and their offices, and in the lobby of her apartment building, people brought out clothes for me, my Holy Spirit friend, and to the black lady as gifts, and we were told it was because they loved her. My understanding is that 17 stands for Victory. I feel the nearby school implies needed institution instructions (foundational teaching).
I feel this dream is telling me that change is coming and the old man-made (social) structures will be taken down and a new structure is coming with a level playing field. The new and different to many of us will seem to get injured but really will be okay. God will clothe us and we will be okay, even if we are restless and unsure. He is starting at the top but those who rest in the Lord will be a part of the new thing. (Part of the clothing I received was a new red and white pajama gown, which could symbolize rest.)
I feel the Church Body is only as good as the people in it. We need to hear the Lord for what the people really need, be it instruction, clothing, and activities, helps, etc. We need to use caution and wisdom, and not give up when we miss it.
God is not disappointed but He will do what He has to do for our best good.
I always want us to remember Israel because I feel that those who bless her will prosper in the Lord, Spiritually and in the physical realm. I feel that if we bless her Land, our land will be blessed, and that we need to do practical things as the Lord leads us for that Land to prosper.
I feel that as a Church if we don’t, we only delay our blessings. That is why I believe that a tithe of our tithe should go to Her. I think it will preserve us in the difficult and challenging times and that it speaks to God prophetically that we believe Him and His Word is true. For God, I feel this is affection to Him.
The cafe in the dream is the church community and the “offices” (office gifts) are on the side of it (paraclete). It’s the place of “the mindset” that affects the whole community. Leaders have to see what is going on with the people and help them Spiritually and practically, because the Church is only as good as its people in it.
And even now as I ponder this, I wonder if this represents our national government, with the two branches as “covering over us” (the top two stories) and the “hill” behind.
I hope there is something in this that blesses and ministers.
In His Shalom Peace,Blessings and Love,
Right after this dream, a friend of mine (who happens to be a black lady) sent me this article which I have posted here: http://www.prophetic.net/Isaiah911.pdf and then another friend sent me a link to a Sid Roth show that is also covering the same thing!
