The Whole Truth or Just A Piece?
I had a dream 05/14/2015. In the dream I hear the word Laodicea. Laodicea is the 7th church mentioned in the book of Revelation and is the only church of the seven that Jesus has absolutely nothing good to day about. In fact the word says that it makes Him want to puke. The word “Laodicea”, is formed from two Greek words. These words are laos, which means “people”, and dikazo, which can mean either a personal opinion or a decree,for example, a sentence, given by a judge. Therefore,the word “Laodicea” can mean both “people’s opinions” or “people judged“. From what I have read there are over 25,000 “Christian” denominations, the word denomination means division, each claiming to have the corner on the market when it comes to the truth. Now back to my dream. As I said above I had a dream where I saw a white cloth. Then I saw hands begin to take pieces from the cloth. The pieces were no bigger than what you could put between your index finger and thumb. This kept going on until the cloth was completely gone. A piece of cloth as small as the one I saw in my dream is pretty much worthless because it can’t be used for anything. We tend to throw pieces of cloth such as these away. The church of Jesus Christ was/is to be a guardian of the truth not a judge of what they like and what they don’t like. It is the truth, the whole truth, that sets you free not the piece(s) that one finds to their liking. The Sword of the Spirit is the complete word of the living God and it is the only offensive weapon we have. To take the truth of God’s word apart is to render the sword powerless.
(15) But if I should delay, that you may know how you ought to behave in the house of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and foundation of the truth.
Each hand in my dream only took a piece of the cloth and therefore only had a piece of the truth. We must remember that God said that He was the God of Abraham, Issac, and Jacob and in so saying He was stating that He was the God of People. God hates division among brethren.
