A Dream about Mice
In August of 2010, I had a dream about being in a house overrun by a plague of mice. There were so many mice you could not step anywhere without stepping on one. . The house itself had white walls on the inside of it and each room, as you might have guessed was filled with mice.When I awoke the next morning, the Lord put 1 Samuel 5 on my heart where is tells about the Ark of the Covenant (the glory of God) being stolen by the Philistines . The Lord sent a plague of mice and tumors on the people everywhere the Ark was brought and so the Lord passed judgement on the Philistine people and their gods.
Mice can devastate grain and pollute with their waste. What I saw also was a grain silo full of grain but also full of tens of thousands of mice devouring and contaminating it with their waste. . What the Lord further showed me was that if the grain was corrupted, then the bread made from the grain made from the bread will also be corrupted. Bread is a symbol of the Word of God. In Samuel, it was he Philistines that had stolen the Ark, and God in turn sent them plagues, mice being the one that was prominent in my dream.
Some things to take and pray about:
In the old testament, we see God refer to the house of Israel, or the House of Jacob. A house here represents a people.
In this dream, the mice were in a house and what I strongly felt,was it was the church that these mice were in. .Remember, contaminated grain = contaminated bread (word)
When the Ark was taken, the daughter-in-law of Eli name her son Ichabod. “Israel’s glory is gone because the ark of God has been captured,” she said.
(1Sa 4:22 GW)
The next thing in my dream that I noticed is that the walls of the house were white. What the Lord dropped into my spirit about this was from Ezekiel.
Because, even because they have seduced My people, saying, Peace, when there is no peace, and because when one builds a [flimsy] wall, behold, [these prophets] daub it over with whitewash,
(Eze 13:10 AMP)
The whitewash is the covering up of sin and treating it as if everything were alright when it most definitely is not.
Think of a mouse as a lie, a single grain of wheat. and mice as a bunch of lies and falsehoods and many grains of wheat.. When the grain is polluted, the bread which is made from the grain will be polluted. Since bread is symbolic of the Word of God, then the word will be polluted and false prophets and others who tickle the itching ear build a flimsy wall and cover it with whitewash and say that everything is alright when it is not alright. The Lord says the following about those who preach such lies and give the people a false sense of security, “Say this about the prophets of Jerusalem: I see something horrible. The prophets of Jerusalem commit adultery and live a lie. They support those who do evil so that no one turns back from his wickedness. They are all like Sodom to me, and those who live in Jerusalem are like Gomorrah.”
(Jer 23:14 GW)
The Apostle Paul speaks of this ” For we are not like many, peddling the word of God, but as from sincerity, but as from God, we speak in Christ in the sight of God”.
(2Co 2:17 NASB)
The word “peddling” comes from the Greek word, “kapēleúō” and means to treat as if for personal profit, a profiteer. Used only in 2Co_2:17 translated “corrupt,” i.e., corrupting God’s Word for personal gain, to adulterate wine with water to make an unworthy personal gain.
When the Glory of God is present there is unity. “The glory which You have given Me I have given to them, that they may be one, just as We are one; I in them and You in Me, that they may be perfected in unity, so that the world may know that You sent Me, and loved them, even as You have loved Me.
(Joh 17:22-23 NASB)
When the Glory of God is present, we are changed. And all of us, as with unveiled face, [because we] continued to behold [in the Word of God] as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are constantly being transfigured into His very own image in ever increasing splendor and from one degree of glory to another; [for this comes] from the Lord [Who is] the Spirit.
(2Co 3:18 AMP)
