Dreams and Visions

The Power of the Cross

I had a night vision as I lay in bed 03/07/2014. In the vision I saw a group of believers gathered in a circle holding hands. In the middle of the circle was the Cross of Christ. It was  dazzling white in appearance. I saw power emanating from the cross in the form of small lightning bolts and the bolts were striking the people in the circle in their foreheads. They were receiving power from the cross. What I noticed in the dream as well was there was darkness all around save for the light coming from the cross that was illuminating the circle where the believers were gathered. The cross was the central thing that they seemed to be gathered around.

It is no coincidence that before I fell asleep that I was reading the following scriptures:

For Christ did not send me to baptize, but to preach the gospel–not with wisdom and eloquence, lest the cross of Christ be emptied of its power. For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. (1Co 1:17-18)

Below is a vision that I had in 2010 that goes along with this latest post.

I had a very tragic vision on 07/25/2010. In the vision I could see many preachers, their pulpits
were lined up next to each other,they were very learned men, some were in suits and some were in robes,and they were preaching to a very large …congregation . The eyes of everyone in the congregation and their attention were on these preachers. In back of these preachers I could see Jesus on the cross. Not one of the preachers ever mentioned the cross in his preaching and no one in the congregation ever looked at the cross, their eyes were on the preachers and they were attentive to the “wisdom” that was being taught by them

Man’s wisdom empties the cross of its power. In the vision above that is exactly what was happening.

In order to experience resurrection power, one must first be willing to be crucified with Christ. Below is a quote from A. W. Tozer that I feel appropriate to place here.

“The new cross does not slay the sinner, it redirects him. It gears him into a cleaner and jollier way of living and saves his self-respect. To the self-assertive it says, ‘Come and assert yourself for Christ.’ To the egotist it says, ‘Come and do your boasting in the Lord.’ To the thrill seeker it says, ‘Come and enjoy the thrill of Christian fellowship.’ The Christian message is slanted in the direction of the current vogue in order to make it acceptable to the public.”

“The old cross is a symbol of death. It stands for the abrupt, violent end of a human being. The man in Roman times who took up his cross and started down the road had already said good-by to his friends. He was not coming back. He was going out to have it ended. The cross made no compromise, modified nothing, spared nothing; it slew all of the man, completely and for good. It did not try to keep on good terms with its victim. It struck cruel and hard, and when it had finished its work, the man was no more.”

I have been crucified with Christ, and I live; yet no longer I, but Christ lives in me. And that life I now live in the flesh, I live by faith toward the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself on my behalf.
(Gal 2:20)

        your exactly right! They say oh your fine, stay where you are, let me just take your money, no need to repent, no need to talk of such….and all the while the people in the buildings sent comfy and cozy….you may want to read te post the Lord had me put up on the 3 red stamps , the two dreams and one vision. Those dreams show the false shepherds taking from the sheep, yes… the Lord bless you !

      • I had a dream 12/11/2013. In the dream I saw people lined up at a church altar and it looked at first as though they had responded to an altar call. Then I noticed the church leaders, both pastors and elders, had buckets of white paint and these large paintbrushes in their hands, the kind you would use to paint a barn. These church leaders were painting the people standing there with the white wash that they had in their paint buckets. It would seem that instead of coming clean and confessing their sins they were instead being covered with this whitewash to give the semblance of being clean and in essence told that everything was ok. I also noticed that the hands of the people at the altar were black, I’m assuming that the black represented sin. I do not remember hearing any message of repentance or any telling the people assembled at the altar to change the way that they think or act. They just stood there and allowed the church leaders to cover them with the whitewash.

        What comes to mind here is the following scriptures.

        When you spread out your hands in prayer, I hide my eyes from you; even when you offer many prayers, I am not listening. Your hands are full of blood! Wash and make yourselves clean. Take your evil deeds out of my sight; stop doing wrong. Learn to do right; seek justice. Defend the oppressed. Take up the cause of the fatherless; plead the case of the widow. “Come now, let us settle the matter,” says the LORD. “Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool.
        (Isa 1:15-18)

        “It is definitely because they have misled My people by saying, ‘Peace!’ when there is no peace. And when anyone builds a wall, behold, they plaster it over with whitewash; so tell those who plaster it over with whitewash, that it will fall. A flooding rain will come, and you, O hailstones, will fall; and a violent wind will break out. “Behold, when the wall has fallen, will you not be asked, ‘Where is the plaster with which you plastered it?’” Therefore, thus says the Lord GOD, “I will make a violent wind break out in My wrath. There will also be in My anger a flooding rain and hailstones to consume it in wrath. “So I will tear down the wall which you plastered over with whitewash and bring it down to the ground, so that its foundation is laid bare; and when it falls, you will be consumed in its midst. And you will know that I am the LORD. “Thus I will spend My wrath on the wall and on those who have plastered it over with whitewash; and I will say to you, ‘The wall is gone and its plasterers are gone,
        (Eze 13:10-15)

        They dress the wound of my people as though it were not serious. “Peace, peace,” they say, when there is no peace.
        (Jer 8:11)

    This shows exactly what they have done. I see here clearly, the people allowed themselves to be whitewashed/painted or to be covered by paint, rather than by the precious blood of Jesus. while there hands were black, revealing they were not truly washed in the blood of Jesus.

    • A frightening thought when you think about the fact that we will all stand before the judgement seat of Christ.

    • I also think that the black hands meant “works of darkness, sinful deeds”. Just thought to add.
      Isaiah 29:15 Woe unto them that seek deep to hide their counsel from the LORD, and their works are in the dark, and they say, Who seeth us? and who knoweth us?
      Romans 13:12 The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light.
      Ephesians 5:11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.
