For A Bowl Of Porridge
I had a dream 06/02/2015. In the dream my wife was selling a home. Now the home itself was of no significance but what it represented was of great significance. The home represented an inheritance and she was selling it because we needed the money. I was opposed to the sale because of what the house represented in the dream. I remember trying to speak to the man who bought the house to try to get the money back but I don’t remember if I was able to get it back or not in the dream. What came to me in the dream is the following from Genesis.
(29) Now Jacob cooked a stew; and Esau came in from the field, and he was weary.
(30) And Esau said to Jacob, “Please feed me with that same red stew, for I am weary.” Therefore his name was called Edom.
(31) But Jacob said, “Sell me your birthright as of this day.”
(32) And Esau said, “Look, I am about to die; so what is this birthright to me?”
(33) Then Jacob said, “Swear to me as of this day.” So he swore to him, and sold his birthright to Jacob.
(34) And Jacob gave Esau bread and stew of lentils; then he ate and drank, arose, and went his way. Thus Esau despised his birthright.
I think that the dream is a warning of perilous economic times ahead. We are not in debt and we are not having to sell our house because of a pressing financial need. My wife is a woman of great faith and values her walk with God above all else. She, in the natural, would not do such a thing. With that said, however, this dream serves as a warning of our inheritance in Christ. Esau sold one of the most coveted possessions in biblical times, the right of the first born son. In fact, the bible said that he despised it. He sold it because he was hungry. I had a dream a few years back that I believe fists in with the above dream.
Coming Famine………A Second Dream
I had a dream 02/10/2014 and in this dream I was in some kind of meeting in a church. We were all sitting at tables. In the dream there was a pastor, who I recognized, talking and passing out cards each having a word on it which we were supposed to give a definition for. I do not remember the word I was given, however, I do remember that it had to do with food and I remembered a dream I had back in April of 2011.
Here is the dream from 2011
I had a very frightening dream Monday, April 25, 2011 and the Lord basically told my wife the same thing the following morning. In my dream, I was in a very large grocery store, something like a Costco, or a huge warehouse and there was an overabundance of food everywhere the eye could see. And then I felt the Lord say that there is a very severe famine coming that will test the faith of all believers.If you remember the 70′s when Gas was rationed and you had to go get gas on the day assigned to you according to your license plate number so will it be in this famine. Money will not be in short supply, food will. Many believers’ stomachs rather than their faith will dictate their actions in this time. This I believe is how the mark will take hold. Money is not the issue here. If you remember in Revelation no one could buy or sell without the mark When the shelves are empty, we must realize that God, and not our money or jobs is our ultimate provider. I believe that right now is a time of abundance but as in Pharaoh’s dream that Joseph Interpreted for him, there were years of abundance followed by years of famine in which the abundance was quickly forgotten.This is why the house church is so important. Acts 2 will begin to play out here, i believe.
All the believers kept meeting together, and they shared everything with each other. From time to time, they sold their property and other possessions and distributed the money to anyone who needed it. The believers had a single purpose and went to the temple every day. They were joyful and humble as they ate at each others homes and shared their food.
When I was done sharing this dream, the pastor looked very uncomfortable and wished that I had never said anything. I find that it’s no coincidence that I was given a card with a word having to do with food on it. I also find that being that the dream was repeated a second time means that there is a sense of urgency to it and a warning that should be headed. What comes to mind here is the following:
And since the dream was repeated to Pharaoh twice, it is because the thing is established by God, and God will shortly bring it to pass.
