There are many voices in the land today; many jostling for one to draw near; many hustling to “sell” their wares.
I cannot recommend any ministry, I can only recommend to you Christ Jesus. Your path must be His path.
I had wanted to go for a series of meetings recently. I was made aware that I was not to go.
“This is not the direction you are to take”. My heart was directed to a dream I had in June this year.
Phenomena from every realm is drawing God’s people away from the focus of the Christ. Whether that be the humanistic realm, the philosophical realm, the ufology realm, the New Age realm, the conspiracy realm, the prophetic realm etc...
The time is late.
We are to be wise as serpents (Matt 10:16).
There are to be no “exclusive” clubs on this pathway of Life. Exclusive in terms of “we alone hold the Truth of Christ”. Those who follow the narrow way have already been excluded from the broad way, so I do not speak in terms of that. If you meet one with such a claim, it is a road hewn out by men and not the Lord. (Jer 2:13 – “Forsaken me the Fountain of Living Water”)
Some who had started in the spirit are ending up in the flesh. The Cross has been forsaken.
The words of the Lord Jesus are wholesome words, as Apostle Paul cautioned us two millennia ago (1 Tim 6:3). These are the words that bring wholeness. They will burn the flesh (not accept it), but bring healing to the soul. These are the words we are to carry and manifest as we become the epistle (letter) read of all men (2 Corin 3:2).
Therefore examine all phenomena and see if our Lord is glorified or if He is placed in the background. See if filthy lucre is exalted (Titus 1:11). Discern the true from the false.
The plumb line is the Christ. He is the Litmus test.
Also remember: “And the servant of the Lord must not strive (grk – machomai – quarrel, dispute, war. Be “macho”!), but be gentle unto all men, apt to teach, patient, in meekness instructing those that oppose themselves, if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth.” (2 Tim 2:24-25)
The dream is below:
12th June 2007
We were in a type of hotel, me and some family friends. We were in the United Kingdom.
While we slept at night, I saw thieves breaking into the hotel.
They seemed to make alot of noise, but no one was stirred. So my sleeping self raised a loud alarm and the thieves scurried away.
When morning came, we all woke up, I decided to go down to the hotel lobby very early. The sight there was a real surprise.
At the lobby were the entire contents of all the hotel guests personal suitcases that we thought had been safe in our rooms, mobile phones, Laptops, clothes etc..., and they were being bartered in a "car-boot sale" type auction. There was a huge crowd gathered there.
I wondered to myself, "So the thieves actually got to all our stuff and they have the boldness to sell it right infront of us!" It seemed the entire hotel staff were in on it.
I pushed myself through the crowd to the tables of stuff. My valuables were still untouched! People seemed to bypass them. I quickly grabbed what I could, but noticed I was unable to find my wristwatch.
I then raced up the staircase to my room to inform my friends. By the time we got downstairs again, everything had gone!
It seemed I then woke up from that whole environment and found myself walking in the street outside the hotel.
I kept thinking of the wristwatch I couldn't find. I noticed the people around seemed to have our things on, and I drew close to a man who was admiring a watch on his wrist.
"Got it from the hotel sale", he said. "Really cheap stuff there for the quality".
The watch didn't look like mine, but I asked him who had brought all the stuff for the sale.
"Some thieves. They always raid places and sell them cheaply to us. See them just over there". He pointed in the direction of a group of men.
I decided to go over to them and ask them why they did this.
I noticed they were armed with automatic weapons - machine guns, but I sensed they wouldn't be able to hurt me.
They were young men, shabbily dressed, looking fearful but bold at the same time.
As I confronted them, they said, "Empty your pockets"! Then pointed their guns towards me.
I didn't have anything in my pockets and told them this (for I had left all the valuables I could retrieve back in the hotel).
I looked up to the heavens and said, "Father", "Jesus". Then their guns seemed to change to toy ones.
It was here that the entire dream ended and I woke up from it.
This is what I could glean from it:
It would seem that the enemy has been able to gain a strong foothold in the Body of Christ. So much so that in our times of sleep, he can take everything away from us and we will not stir.
Those we think are our hosts (like the hotel team) are actually in confederacy with the enemy, for our discernment has been lacking.
If we delay in retrieving back that which has been stolen from us - we will lose everything. So when we wake up we must be ready very early to regain our footing in our inheritance.
It would also seem that our most precious items are taken for granted (cheaply). Those who now have them know their value, and are pleased with their ability to get it without the required sacrifice.
Let me know if anyone else sees something else in this.
