My Dreams and Visions

Dreams and Visions

In Whose Image? 

I had a dream the morning of December 26, 2016. In the dream I saw the inside of a factory.  My attention was drawn to a conveyor belt coming out of this big machine. What was coming out of the machine and moving along on the conveyor belt were church buildings.  As I watched, i noticed each one was the same as if from a mold and/or design pattern as it came out of the machine and moved along the assembly line. Next I saw people down the assembly line with what I will call Ken & Barbie-like figures and they would take them and put them into the church buildings. At the end of the assembly line I saw other workers take the church buildings filled with plastic people and put them into boxes ready for shipping. 

When Moses was with the Lord in the mountain he was cautioned to build according to the pattern that he was shown. His opinion was of no consequence as his opinion was not welcomed or asked for. His obedience was what was demanded of him.

The pattern we are to follow today left for us by the Lord is that we’re are to be a living building housing the glory of the Lord and taking the ekklesia to the people.

Eph 2:19 — Eph 2:22

Christ Our Cornerstone

Now, therefore, you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being the chief cornerstone, in whom the whole building, being fitted together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord, in whom you also are being built together for a dwelling place of God in the Spirit.

I also think that the fact that the people being placed into the building were plastic is worthy of note also as this is what you find in many churches . People unwilling and/or unable to be real for fear of rejection and ridicule and finding themselves unwelcome.

  1. Ha! Isn’t that funny! Did the Ken and Barbies have clothes on? Very indicative of the false church. Shalom…Happy Hannakah!

  2. Wow that’s a very symbolic image. It reminds me of the Casting Crowns song, Stained Glass Masquerade. It’s true though, it’s very difficult to show our weakness. Nice post thank you for sharing.

    • Thank you for your encouraging wor

    • There is a great shaking coming to the body of Christ and the fake is going to be exposed because the real will expose it.

      • A dream of sheep being exposed dec 27 2016

        I entered into a place of business. As I walked through the front door i continued to walk through the galley shape place of business. It looked like the store was a hair salon. On the left side were some small kitchen appliances for sale. I recall seeing a counter top burner. The shop was Long and narrow like some hair salon shops I have seen. On the right side there were 3 large comfortable upholstered leather recliners. There were 2 women occupying 2 of the 3 seats. The seat on the left was vacant. The recliners reminded me of the recliners you see in a pedicure shop. I understood this business belonged to the women.

        We were conversing casually when the woman sitting on the far right of the 3 chairs said she had just hired a worker.

        The scene quickly changed. I suddenly saw this same woman/owner standing up in front of a big fat sheep that was sitting in the 3rd throne like recliner. She began shearing off his heavy wool. I realized this was actually a place where sheep get their wool sheared.

        The sheep in the chair was big, fat and woolly. The wool looked grey white in colour. The sheep sat on the recliner like a person sits. With her strong arms, this woman began lifting up the sheep’s upper front legs at the same time holding up its upper body. With her right hand the woman began to shear off the sheep’s wool with electronic heavy duty sheep shearing scissors. The blade ran smoothly along the length of the sheep’s body exposing his skin.

        The sheep shearing machine reminded me of those machines that stand by a patient’s bed side in a hospital or surgery room. I say this because the scissors were not manual scissors but heavy duty and powered up through an electrical connection.

        The scene changed again. The woman is once again seated on the far right sight side chair and we are conversing again. I heard myself ask her “Are you still looking for workers?” She eagerly said yes! I am. I then said I would even work free for the first 2 days. After it was all agreed I thought to myself, I didn’t know why i offered to work for her, I didn’t even know I was looking for work. And on top of that I understood the work was hard, heavy and required a much effort. I then thought to myself, the pay probably isn’t even that good! I don’t know why I asked to be hired!

        But it was too late to change my mind because the owner had instantaneously disappeared and I found myself standing alone in the shop. I knew I had been hired.

        interpretation … I am still processing the meaning

        The place of business in where congregations meet (ie the temple where Jesus over threw those that were making a living from the people). The front door is Christ and the narrow galley shaped shop reminds me of the root meaning of Galilee. Galilee means “a porch or entrance at the front of a cathedral” (think “galley” kitchen – long and narrow).

        the 2 women speak of wisdom, represent His Word. The third seat was occupied by the sheep to be shorn/He is one who presumes to be speaking for Christ; a type of Chistian. Wool and hair speak of power (Samson). The sheep is using his own authority/will (not the Lord’s Will/purpose) so his power (self will) is being stripped away.

        The sheep in the recliner is being sheared and exposed. The shearing tool is electric because it represents the Holy Spirit.

  3. Our Church
    or
    HIS HOUSE
    PART ONE

    “This people say, The time is not come,
    the time that the LORD’S house should be built…
    “Is it time for you yourselves to dwell in your paneled houses,
    and this temple to lie in ruins?”
    Now therefore, thus says the Lord of hosts:
    “Consider your ways!
    “You have sown much, and bring in little…”
    HAGGAI 1:2

    Our church and His House are not the same thing. He has many “living stones” within the confines of our churches but, make no mistake, the two are not the same. For the most part we are content to dwell in our churches. We deck them out in attractive designs and welcoming programs but the end is the same. An organization that operates much the same as any worldly corporation, with various committees and structures, can never produce that organism that lives by the Lordship of the Holy Ghost. His House is to be pulsating with a Life that produces life. The men and women who minister in this house have one purpose and one heart’s cry; to see each member functioning in the power, uniqueness and spontaneity that can only be the product of Him who is the Author and Perfecter of such things. In HIS House (singular) there is a unity of desire to glorify Him. Success is not measured by how many attend but by the righteousness and quality of character of those involved. We are no longer content to dwell in “our” houses but the real concern is for HIS HOUSE. That HOUSE is made up of men and women who were born in Heavenly Zion, the City of our God, the New Jerusalem which is THE CHURCH of the Firstborn. This is not a building on a street corner. This is HIS BODY comprised only of the blood washed children of God born out of every tongue, nation and tribe. A people fused together by ONE SPIRIT and ONE FAITH having been born unto One Father by the power of the Holy Ghost.

    “But you have come to Mount Zion
    and to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem,
    to an innumerable company of angels,
    to the general assembly and church of the firstborn
    who are registered in heaven,
    to God the Judge of all,
    to the spirits of just men made perfect”
    HEBREWS 12:22 – 23

    In HIS HOUSE the ministry is functioning to bring forth a UNITY OF THE FAITH not the filling up of a building! HE HAS GIVEN…

    “And He Himself gave some to be apostles,
    some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers,
    FOR the equipping of the saints FOR the work of ministry,
    FOR the edifying of the body of Christ,
    TILL WE ALL come to the unity of the faith”
    EPHESIANS 4:11 – 13

    True ministry is not here to propagate an organization or its agendas. Rather they are to facilitate an actual growth in righteousness. Their sphere of influence should be equipping others to function in the call, the purposes and power of the Holy Ghost, They are to minister in such a way as to bring forth the UNITY of THE FAITH and of the FULL KNOWLEDGE OF THE SON!! The nature of anything is known by the fruit it produces. Often the young men and women attending our Bible schools are indoctrinated in the particular brand of “faith” of that school. Rather than producing those who are moving toward the unity of the faith they are propagating and instilling deeper divisions and confusion. God has a name for this; it is called Babylon. The scoffers and the “wise” of this world/church say that such a unity is unattainable on this earth. God’s Word says that these ministrations will continue UNTIL this takes place AND JESUS PRAYED…

    “I pray for them…
    that they may be one as We are..
    I do not pray for these alone,
    but also for those who will believe in Me through their word;
    that they all may be one, as You, Father, are in Me,
    and I in You; that they also may be one in Us,
    that the world may believe that You sent Me”
    JOHN 17 (excerpts)
    (read the whole prayer)

    This unity is attainable if for no other reason than that the SON PRAYED for it. He gave ministry unto the church to make it so. If we cannot believe God for this than it is time for us to consider the validity of our faith.

    The Time is not yet come!
    I hear people say “it is not time” for such a thing. I hear people say “can such a thing ever be?”

    “With men this is impossible;
    but with God all things are possible”
    MATTHEW 19:26

    The fact of the matter is HIS HOUSE lays waste. How do we know this? What measure do we use to arrive at such a conclusion? All we have to do is read the Book of Acts, and as Haggai says…

    “You have sown much, and bring in little”
    HAGGAI 1:6

    The outreach programs, the marketing efforts, the strategizing, and immense amounts of human energy and financial resources are spent with little return. We market HIM rather than present HIM. We offer HIM up as a cheap commodity as if He were dependent upon the whim and will of men. He is not presented as the King of Kings and Lord of Lords; we present HIM as something less. Are we here to beg and plead with people to accept HIM or are His People the result of HIS CALL, HIS CHOOSING AND HIS SOVEREIGNTY?

    “You did not choose Me, but I chose you
    and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit”
    JOHN 15:16

    “NO ONE CAN COME TO Me unless the Father who sent Me draws him;
    and I will raise him up at the last day”
    JOHN 6:44

    {No One! We may wonder, then why preach? Watchman Nee put it best… He would go from village to village preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ because there were those in every village whom God’s Spirit had been preparing for him to bring that living word.}

    We see the ineffectiveness of our efforts while we present to the world a divided, powerless church, filled with division and competition. We seek to build kingdoms unto ourselves and compete with the church across the street. We think we are moving toward unity if the pastors meet once a month in some fraternal way. We neglect the fact that the way God has purposed to reveal Himself to the world is through the depth and power of LOVE that we have toward one another. “BY THIS SHALL ALL MEN KNOW…” Yet through unbelief we continue to say such a thing is impossible. We ignore the necessity of the five fold ministry and invent a pastoral role without ANY scriptures to support it. We are more interested in building our church than HIS. We say we are of the Pentecostal church, the Alliance church, the Anglican church, the Baptist church, etc. Paul told the Corinthians that such a thing is carnal…

    “Now I say this, that each of you (who) says, “I am of Paul,”
    or “I am of Apollos,” or “I am of Cephas,”
    or “I am of Christ.”
    IS CHRIST DIVIDED?
    1 CORINTHIANS 1:12

    If Christ is not divided how dare we live divided. Jesus told us to pray to the end that as it is in heaven so should it be on earth. The end of division is summed up in one word, OBEDIENCE! Thy WILL be DONE on earth AS IT IS IN HEAVEN. The SON prayed for that unity here and that it would be of the same quality as it is in Heaven. Therefore…

    “THUS SAYS THE LORD
    CONSIDER YOUR WAYS”
    HAGGAI 1:5, 7

    Brian Troxel

    • Well said Brian.

    • Feedmysheep your dream intrigues me. The sheep are fat. The anointing is fat? They wool is very heavy–its a heavy burden to carry all that weight around. I am wondering if you are going to be placed in a position to help the sheep find their joy and their laughter and peace in Him instead of burdens and down weighted stress. I also thought it possibly could represent fat lazy sheep that go to church and get pampered and never sheared/ shedding the old for a new coat! OR–A new Joseph anointing–he received a new coat after the one he was given was covered in blood. Oh the blood of Yeshua! Tony you hit the nail on the head with your dream. Its a plastic sugar coated factory of an assembly line. Look in the camera repeat a three second prayer! Bingo you are now saved. sad.

  4. Judgement begins in His House. That is church, that is also us personally and that is our normal home-house, since His Word says that we are His house. We can wait,watch with cheerful expectation -like a Jona- we can also make a start being sincere ourselves with God., that is the way He wants it. That is what is important to Him, not pointing at others. Is it a cheerful thing: exposiontime? Is it only fot the ‘wicked’? You bet it is not. It is a time to haste to His mercyseat, no it is not the other it is us as well. After all His Word is a personnal message for the one who reads it, the mirror of mirrors. We must stop with referring the pleasant things from the Bible on ourselves, and the unpleasant things on others. ‘ it is not me who is a problem, who is unsincere it is my neighbor’ O really? He spits unsincere hearts out so it is time to take a good look in the mirror and to keep fingers in pockets ( not possible to point them on others). I’m tired about talking about the others when all we need to do is to look at ourseves, our own sins and our own hypocrisy and unsincerity. We are conform our faith. So how-what are WE. A little bit more important than judging what others are.

    We actually knowcso little. All of us without exception

  5. Haggai 1:2 is a message I told in church a couple of years ago and people were weaping. It is a good text and so actual.
