Whom Do You Seek? “Why do you look for the living among the dead”,?
I had a vision last night, September 1, 2012 of a church building. Outside of the building standing in front of the doors were 2 men dressed in white robes, angels I presume. When people would come up to the doors of the church building, the men in the white robes would ask them whom do you seek. When those coming up to the church would say Jesus of Nazareth, the men in the white robes would reply, “He is not here, He has risen”.
The angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay.(Mat 28:5-6 NIV)
In their fright the women bowed down with their faces to the ground, but the men said to them, “Why do you look for the living among the dead? He is not here; he has risen! Remember how he told you, while he was still with you in Galilee: (Luk 24:5-6 NIV)
“However, the Most High does not live in houses made by human hands. (Act 7:48)
The institutional church is breathing its last and this vision that I saw above goes along with a dream I had in May of 2010.
In the dream, I saw a wooden coffin and inside the coffin, I saw a church with 2 very large pillars outside. also saw the lid of the coffin resting on the knuckles of 2 hands and the hands in turn were resting on the coffin like one would do just before nailing it shut. So, as you can imagine, there was very little light left in the coffin because of the lid of the coffin being almost on the coffin. Getting back to the church I saw inside the coffin, I saw thousands of people coming out of the church and jumping out of the coffin as fast as they could. However, there were 2 groups of people who refused to leave, in fact; they had their fists held in the air. These 2 groups were standing by the 2 very large pillars I had seen earlier in my dream. These pillars I was told had names. The name of the first pillar was religion and the name of the second pillar was politics.
The interpretation of the dream was given by a by a brother in the Lord, Guy Walton, and is as follows:
A coffin is what you bury the dead in. The coffin in your dream is religious tradition holding the church (the people in the church) in captivity from following Jesus. The two large pillars outside are the gods of the church. The hands belonging to the knuckles in which the lid of the coffin rested on were the hands of the Lord holding the lid from closing all the way till those who were going to leave this traditional church made it out. The hands which were resting on the coffin like they were about to shut it was the hands of the spirit of anti christ who was shutting out the light through lies and deception. This will be a time as the parrabel in Matt 25 of the kingdom of heaven shall be likened to ten virgins. The foolish virgins will be those remaining in the coffin and refusing to repent from their gods of religious politics and accept the life of Christ. Those coming out of the coffin are those who recognize the end is here and they came out from among them as God said to do in 2 Cor. 6:14-18. The door is about to shut and be sealed.
Some additional things the Lord showed me John 5:25 NIV84
25 I tell you the truth, a time is coming and has now come when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God and those who hear will live.
Those who hear are the ones coming out of the casket. The people who standing by the pillars refusing to leave are the ones of whom Jesus says that they are trying to kill Him because there is no room in their hearts for His word. Which is why they did not leave the church in the coffin and why they will try to kill any move of God that would cause people to want to leave the coffin. They prefer the darkness of the coffin where their deeds go unexposed John 3:19-21 NKJV
And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed. But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that they have been done in God.
