The Bride Has Made Herself Ready
I had a dream 03/07/2013. I do not have all the pieces of the dream figured out yet but I believe that I have a grasp of a good portion of it and its meaning. In the dream I was back in the neighborhood where our first home was. I remember driving my daughter’s car and there was some sort of trailer attached. I am not sure just what, if any, part this played in the dream. I remember parking the car down the street from my first house and walking up the street towards it. When I saw my house, I saw an old neighbor there who lived across the street from us when we lived there. This woman was a Jezebel in every sense of the word. The Jezebel of the Bible was controlling, manipulative, hated men, especially prophetic men of God whom she could not control and who had the guts to stand up to her. With that said, I was saying that I was coming up to my old house and the car I now have was in the garage and she was painting it white. She painted everything, including the windshield white. She was even painting the garage white until I stopped her from painting a black chair that was there, white also. She was doing this without my permission. What I need to point out here is that this neighbor represents a type of enemy because we wrestle not against flesh and blood and we must remember this.
It is worthy of note to see what and why she was painting everything white. What the Lord showed me was that the “white” paint in this dream was in fact white wash. Look at what the Lord says in Ezekiel about white wash.
“My hand will be against the prophets who have futile visions and produce false divinations; they will not be allowed into the council of my people, or be written in the register of the house of Israel, or enter the land of Israel. Then you will know that I am Adonai Elohim. They deserve this, because they have led my people astray by saying there is peace when there is no peace. If someone builds a wall without mortar, they ‘plaster’ it with whitewash [to make it appear strong]. Tell these ‘plasterers’ that a cloudburst is coming, with huge hailstones and gale-force winds; and the wall will fall down. Then people will ask you, ‘Where is the whitewash you used to “plaster” it?’ ”
In my dream, the car was being covered up with white paint. White is a sign of purity, however, this car is an older model car and has scratches and dents on it that the “white wash” covered up so that all you saw was a pretty white car.
What stumped me at first was why would she paint the windshield white as well. No one would want to drive a car that they couldn’t see out of. Then the Lord showed me that the window represents sight and eyes. Prophets are eyes and so if all the prophets saw was white, then all was well when in fact that was not the case.
Religion is a spirit that works along with Jezebel and it too is a controlling spirit and it is always concerned about outward appearances. As long as the outside looks good then there’s no need to look on the inside. Jesus,however, looks upon the heart of a person and not the outward appearance.
What I see here in this dream is an attempt to lull me into a false sense of security and to believe that all is well and there is no need to examine one’s self and to make one’s self ready. The windshield being painted was to keep me from seeing anything but white. God sends his prophets to bring words of encouragement and correction so that the bride may be made ready. Therefore, do not despise prophesying as the Word says.
Look at what David says in the Psalms.
Who can discern his errors? Acquit me of hidden faults. Also keep back Your servant from presumptuous sins; Let them not rule over me; Then I will be blameless, And I shall be acquitted of great transgression. Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart Be acceptable in Your sight, O LORD, my rock and my Redeemer.
Search me [thoroughly], O God, and know my heart! Try me and know my thoughts! And see if there is any wicked or hurtful way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.
Now is not the time put your life on cruise control. Now is the time to be sober and vigilant because your enemy is looking for someone to devour. Remember, in hell you can’t repent and in heaven you can’t sin. In hell your identity is your sin and in heaven you are known by your name.
On 3/8/2014 I saw in a vision, a band of angels with trumpets raised to their lips. This tells me that the time is short and we need to see and be aware of the signs of the times. The Last church in Revelation is Laodicea. It was lukewarm and apathetic. Let it serve as a warning to those of us in the 21st century.
Note that the title that I felt to put as the title of my post is, “the bride has made herself ready” It is the bride’s responsibility to maker herself ready. Beware of those who would whitewash sin and lull you into a false sense of security.
