Abuse Of God’s Sheep From The Pulpit
I had a dream 11/26/2015 where once again I saw a preacher standing at a pulpit. Only this time I saw the preacher hurling Bibles at people in the congregation. He hurled the Bibles in such a way that they did not fly open but remained closed when he threw them. The people in the congregation who were his targets were hit in the face with the back corner of the Bible. In the dream he continued throwing them indiscriminately at the people in the congregation. What is weird is the fact that the people, as I’ve seen in previous dreams and visions, had their eyes riveted on the pastor. These Bibles were hitting people in the face and greatly wounding them yet they did not try to duck or get out of the way of the Bibles being thrown. It was as if this was a normal thing to be abused like this.
On a personal note I can relate to this as I have belonged to some congregations in the past where the preacher abused the sheep often. I was a recipient at times of the abuse.
I believe that the following scriptures are appropriate here.
Luk 12:42 — Luk 12:47
And the Lord said, “Who then is that faithful and wise steward, whom his master will make ruler over his household, to give them their portion of food in due season? Blessed is that servant whom his master will find so doing when he comes. Truly, I say to you that he will make him ruler over all that he has. But if that servant says in his heart, ‘My master is delaying his coming,’ and begins to beat the male and female servants, and to eat and drink and be drunk, the master of that servant will come on a day when he is not looking for him, and at an hour when he is not aware, and will cut him in two and appoint him his portion with the unbelievers. And that servant who knew his master’s will, and did not prepare himself or do according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes.
