When You Come Together………..The Body of Christ Part 2
I had a dream 02/28/2013. In this dream I saw a huge crayon. What was unique about this crayon is that it had no wrapper on it and the crayon had a multitude of colors the first being white. This is significant because in light, white is the presence of all colors, and, we are to walk in God’s light and in so doing,
But if we live in the light in the same way that God is in the light, we have a relationship with each other. And the blood of his Son Jesus cleanses us from every sin.
Even though white is the presence of all colors in light it is the absence of all colors when it comes to pigment.
I saw this crayon color everything white, pretty boring, I know. But the only way to get to the next color in the crayon was to totally use up the white. Even though the crayon contained all these colors white was the only on visible. I then saw the colors in the crayon separate and when this occurred things began to take on a whole new look. Colors were mixed and reds and whites became pinks, other colors were paired with each other and provided contrast. While the white in the presence of light represents our fellowship with one another and the Lord; the pigment represents the physical aspects of color. In fact, in pigment, white is the absence of color. I believe that the colors in this dream are representative of people’ s personalities and characteristics all of which were apart of the crayon but until separated into their respective individual colors they remained hidden from view.
In my previous posting, I mentioned people coming together each having a puzzle piece and that the completed picture of Jesus was dependent upon the cooperation of the individuals gathered. So it is with the crayon in my dream. We must realize that none of us have the capacity to draw and color the picture by ourselves. We need the cooperation of the body.Below is a description of this provided by Oksana who blogs under the name Talitha Kum.
<About the Church gathering (we had this chat some time ago, remember?), I finally had my home group gathering a few days ago. It was a very interesting experience. People gathered from very different backgrounds and church traditions. And even some spoke Russian, and some English. Looks like we will have a group of Nigerian college students with us. I was translating back and forth. But at the end was something unbelievable. Someone suggested to sing a hymn. He started in Russian, and the Nigerian guy at the same time started in English. It actually worked! Trust and Obey was the song. Oh my. I never thought it could happen like this. And I have no idea what I am doing and where it’s all going, just one day at a time. I trust the Lord to work out the details.
