A Blast From The Past?
As I was dozing off I had the following dream. 03/29/15. In the dream I was trying to close a door, a very big door, that led to my past. It seemed that the harder I tried to shut it the harder was the pushing on the other side to have it remain open. The amount of physical strength I was exerting in the dream to shut the door can be compared to people trying to break down a door with the intention of harming and/or killing you. How hard would you fight to keep that door from opening knowing that if you failed it could cost you your life? This is the situation I found myself in and I will say that even with me trying to hold that door shut with every ounce of strength I had, I was loosing. Then Jesus stepped in and closed the door with my hands also on the door. I have heard the supernatural described as His “super” meeting my “natural”. Even with the door closed I was not out of the woods yet for you see it was I and not Jesus who still was in possession of the key. I remember having to lock the door myself. I received absolutely no help fro Jesus. He had done His part The key in this dream had a name and its name was the human free will. I remember giving Jesus the key and walking away from the door. It is a good thing I did because the cries I heard from the other side of that door beckoning me to let them in were tugging at me, and, had I maintained possession of the key I might have not had the strength to keep walking away from the door.
Now as to the title of my post a blast from the past I will describe what I mean by the phrase.
I have heard many a Christian say, when referring to their past that is was a blast. If they consider it a blast can they say that they truly repented? Now, I am not here to judge hearts or motives so please do not read into this more than what is intended.
(21) What fruit did you have then in those things of which you are now ashamed? For the end of those things is death.
There are things in my life that I wish I had never done, wish I had never said and people I’ve wounded that I wish I could undo the damage that I caused. I pray for people that are no longer in my life. I pray for their healing every time their name comes to mind. I do not want anybody’s blood on my hands. There is no blast from my past that I wish to brag about.
As I write this post I see another vision. One of the throne room of God. Behind the throne room is also a door. This door was shut tight. Those going through it were going to hell from whence there was no return. No human could open this door from the side of hell to which it opened to. The door led to hell and it was a one way trip.
So I would encourage those who think that Jesus cannot set them free from their past. He can and does. Those who think that He cannot forgive you for your past, He can and does willingly and lovingly.
The key, once He helps you to shut that door, however, is in your hands. I would suggest you get rid of it like it was burning with the very fire of hell which is where it was forged and where ultimately it will lead.
