You will be thrown out of synagogues…………
While I realize that Jesus was directing this to His disciples and the fate that they would suffer at the hands of their fellow countrymen because of their belief in Jesus, I had the sense that the dream I am posting below fits in with being not welcomed in the synagogue, i.e., church.
I had a dream/night vision 02/01/2014 and in it I saw a number of churches. The unique thing here is that they seemed to be centered around a common piece of ground as the doors of the various churches all opened towards the courtyard of this common area.
In the middle of this open area or courtyard, if you will, I was standing at a podium. I am guessing that I was speaking from the podium. People were coming out of the churches and I found myself being stoned by them. I am guessing that what I was saying was not welcomed in the churches and their stoning me was their attempt to silence me. I find it no coincidence that even though there were many churches, they all were on common ground in the dream. Hence my use of the scripture below from the Gospel of John.
You will be thrown out of synagogues. Certainly, the time is coming when people who murder you will think that they are serving God. They will do these things to you because they haven’t known the Father or me.
I consider the chief dangers that confront the coming century will be religion without the Holy Ghost, Christianity without Christ, forgiveness without repentance, salvation without regeneration, politics without God, and heaven without hell.
