I had a horrific dream last night. At first, I couldn’t even talk about it this morning. I just wanted to cry. I knew I needed refresh myself in the Lord.
Once I got before the Lord and refreshed my spirit, He spoke some things to me that I think would be beneficial to all of us to hear. And one thing the Lord knows about me, I don’t want to go through anything difficult and miss what He is trying to teach me, even if the difficult thing is “just a bad dream.”
I was in a very large house — more like a mansion. (Yet we actually live in a 2 BR, 1 BA house, so MUCH smaller than what was in my dream.) I knew we needed to have all the doors, windows locked. I thought they were, but they weren’t. (Now this could actually have to do with something I experienced in real life, but can’t post details.) Anyway, the Lord spoke to me that we all know we need to close “openings” in our spiritual armor. Yet we need to get before Him to allow Him to show us where there might still be openings, no matter how small they may be, then close those openings.
At one point, I was shooting a gun and it started misfiring. As scary as it was in my dream to have that happen, the Lord reminded me that I was not injured during that time. In fact, suddenly, I had a mag that kept firing, w/o ever going out. He gently spoke to me that when we stay grounded in His Word and plant it deeply within our hearts, we can use it as a weapon and it will NEVER misfire. Our spiritual “mag” will NEVER run out of ammo.
One of the things I did while I was allowing the Lord to refresh my spirit was to listen to a playlist on you tube of Harvest. In one song, it asks, “Are we walking into the enemy’s camp and laying our weapons down?” The Lord reminded me that it is critical to be mindful of our spiritual armor and be more ready to use it than even physical armor/weapons because we ARE living in the enemy’s camp NOW.
The one part of the dream that had me so rattled involved watching iSIS taking my daughter. As I shot the gun, my aim was off. The bullet hit something that caused a wet chemical of some kind (likely gasoline) to cover her. The person I was trying to shoot laughed a maniacal laugh and lit a match. It was HORRIFIC to see it. However, once I calmed down and allowed the Lord to speak to me, He reminded me that I immediately used my spiritual weapons and cried out to Him, asking Him to keep that match from lighting up the chemicals on her. AND HE DID!!! In fact, right after that, she was able to get free. Lesson from the Lord: Don’t ever discount the weapons He provides for us. As important as it is for us to be physically prepared for what is ahead of us, our spiritual preparation is of UTMOST IMPORTANCE.
So while the dream was very disturbing, in reality, God used it as a to speak some powerful things to me.
Later this afternoon, I saw this on Steve Quayle’s site and it resonated with my spirit. It goes right along with some of what the Lord was showing me I must take very seriously.
I have been sensing the same thing in my spirit, and even more so, once gay marriage got passed. The walls of our land were severely breached on that day.
Here is another word that goes right along with the above:
