The Cross Of Christ is God’s Mercy
I had a dream 02/18/2013 and in the dream I saw 2 cliffs. At the bottom of the 2 cliffs was a river of fire or molten lava, in other words, this was hell. The only way to get from one side to the other was the cross of Christ. The cross is a made from 2 narrow pieces of wood and it was this that was the bridge that you had to cross to get to the other side. Remember Jesus said that the road to eternal life was both straight and narrow and few there be that find it. In the dream I saw people crossing on the bridge, i.e., the cross, to get to the other side. This is a picture I have seen many times before, not in dreams, but actual pictures. What was different about this dream was that I saw along with the people who were crossing, there were people who had fallen off the cross and were hanging, literally by their fingers to the cross. This is something I’d never seen before in anything I can remember because Christians are noted for shooting their wounded and not helping them even though we are commanded to do so.
BRETHREN, IF any person is overtaken in misconduct or sin of any sort, you who are spiritual [who are responsive to and controlled by the Spirit] should set him right and restore and reinstate him, without any sense of superiority and with all gentleness, keeping an attentive eye on yourself, lest you should be tempted also.
In any event, I saw people who were walking on this narrow bridge stop, stoop down, and grab those who were clinging to the cross for dear life, and pull them up. The scripture that was impressed upon my heart was from Jude when I saw this.
Save others by snatching them from the fire of hell. Show mercy to others, even though you are afraid that you might be stained by their sinful lives. God can guard you so that you don’t fall and so that you can be full of joy as you stand in his glorious presence without fault.
It would be so much easier to just step over those clinging to life or to just step on and let them perish in the flames of hell. But that is not the Father’s heart because He wants no one to perish but for everyone to have eternal life. Note also that the verse in Jude is a command, not a suggestion.
The Lord is not slow about His promise, as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing for any to perish but for all to come to repentance.
It was incredible the amount of mercy that I saw being displayed in this dream
