Just as I was dozing off 10/15/2013, I had a vision/dream, I am not sure what to call it. What I saw was myself sitting in a chair in what I will call a hospital delivery room. Then a newborn baby wrapped in a white blanket was handed to me to hold. I do not believe that the “baby” is necessarily a real baby, but, as the title of my post suggests, it is indicative of new beginnings which is the word I feel that the Lord dropped into my spirit today. I also feel that it has to do with ministry. It is an honor to be given such a precious gift from the Lord to care for.
What’s strange is that this is the 3rd dream that I have had about babies.
The first dream is when my family and I were directed to leave the traditional church as we had known it, He gave me a dream. In the dream I was standing in the sanctuary of the Church my family and I had been attending when all of a sudden I heard my wife scream from the foyer, ” my water has broken”. Now, when mama says that her water has broken, it’s not time to have a family meeting or a discussion, it’s time to leave and to do it quickly so I hurriedly got her out of the church . As we were leaving, she left a trail of water on the floor of the foyer and out the door, this I know now to be symbolic of the Holy Spirit.. I felt the Lord saying that the baby that he was birthing was not to be raised in another man’s house. Now here is where I needed some understanding as I originally thought that He meant by house, another man’s ministry. What I have come to see is that another man’s house is any house whose builder and maker is other than the Lord Himself for it was He who said, ” I will build my church”.
In the second dream, I was at a place with people in it. I don’t feel that the place was important, however. I remember getting ready to leave when I was asked to take 12 babies home with me. I wasn’t able to because I had 3 children in the backseat who were mine, but I did not recognize any of them, just that they were mine. I remember not wanting to leave these kids, in fact, I even held one of them. As I was leaving, my wife pulled up in her car. I remember that I wanted to return for the 12 and I didn’t want to leave them there. believe that the fact that in the dream neither me nor my wife could take all the babies is indicative of the fact that this would be beyond our natural capabilities and would be the Lord who would be arranging the “transportation”
I’m not sure about the meaning of the kids in my car. But, from what I understand about the number 12 in biblical terms, it stands for perfection of government. I knew in my dream, as I do now that the babies were /are important. I feel that the Lord was intrusting me with a precious position of his, both the kids in the car and the other 12.
Part of this dream has already come to pass in that my Son and his wife are staying with me and my wife for the time being and they now have 3 children, the 3rd one being born just a few months ago. My wife and I are speaking into their lives as we have the opportunity to do so.
As the Lord reveals more to me concerning all this, I will be posting it.
