The Bond – servant Warrior
Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus, who, being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God, but made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of men.
Jn 13:3 — Jn 13:5
Jesus, knowing that the Father had given all things into His hands, and that He had come from God and was going to God, rose from supper and laid aside His garments, took a towel and girded Himself. After that, He poured water into a basin and began to wash the disciples’ feet, and to wipe them with the towel with which He was girded.
These verses of Scripture are what I see as describing the servant – warrior in my dream.
I had a dream the morning of 08/01/2015. In this dream I was on a battlefield. I had no weapons and no shield. I don’t remember having any shoes either.
I was dressed in a towel or loin cloth which was the dress of a slave in Bible days. To further exemplify this picture, recall the pictures of Jesus on the cross wearing the garment of a slave.
I saw different parts of the armor appear and dissappear as they were needed. For example, I saw a sword appear and then didsappear from my hand.
The point of the dream is that we are to be slaves with no reputation to speak of totally reliant on the Lord’s wisdom and might to defeat the enemy.
Humility is what it will take to defeat the enemy in battle. Pride will result in downfall. To go back to the verse in Philipians, “He made Himself of NO REPUTATION, emphasis mine. People hung up on titles soon get the attitude of entitlement and entitlement is pride.
