My Dreams and Visions

Dreams and Visions

Whom Do You Fear?

I was shown a vision today where I saw young people holding candles. The young could have either been represtative of actual young people or young Christians.

When a young one would come in to the room, what I will call a seasoned Christian wearing a very heavy coat would walk over to the young one open his coat embrace the child and zip up his coat so that the young one and his candle, i.e., light were well hidden.

Several things come to mind here. The first thing I sensed in the vision was that there was fear in the seasoned Christians hence the reason for the hiding the light of the young believers. They feared man, among other things, and the young ones with the candles shed light on them so that they could be seen.

Jesus said not to fear him that killed the body but afterwards had no further power. But rather fear Him who after killing the body was able to cast  both boy and soul into hell

The other thing I observed is what I called the seasoned Christians who wore coats. What comes to mind here is the verse from Matthew. 

Matthew 24:12

And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold.

These “seasoned Christians” in the vision had grown cold and the fire of passion that once burned brightly for all to see was no more. Hence them being quick to cover the light of the young ones so as not to be exposed by the light they held.

The sad fact is that many Christians mistake being lukewarm for being on fire when that could not be further from the truth.

Many are guilted into attending a body of dead believers because the pastor and/or elders use the ,”forsake not the assembling of yourselves together” scripture to keep them coming back to the building called church.

Instead of fanning the flame they put out the Spirit’s fire in these young ones. Instead of equipping and sending out and encouraging them to let their light to shine before men they are encouraged to polish pews and listen to others who are older and wiser than they.

The fire’s going out and no one seems to notice.

  1. Sad but true, the maidens singing Saul kills his thousands and David his ten thousands caused the jealousy to for Saul to attempt toput an end to David’s life, insecure men seeking to hold on to that which they have already lost. If that light which is in one becomes dark how dreadful is that darkness. May God make us doors for others instead of cloaks of darkness and heaviness.

  2. this is a Word the Lord gave me a few days ago it will be sending it out today or tomorrow… It is in the same Spirit and the same heart as what you have shared here…

    I do appreciate the voices and means by which God is speaking to HIS Church today…
    A New Generation Arises
    While the majority* of an older generation is passing away in unbelief there is a new one arising with faith and determination in their hearts to enter into that which God has set before them. The old generation has failed to enter because of unbelief (Hebrews 3:19, 4:6). They seek by prayer and religious works that which has already been provided for in Christ. The Word of God declares…
    “So we see that they could not enter in because of unbelief”
    (Hebrews 3:19)
    “Seeing therefore it remains that some must enter therein,
    and they to whom it was first preached
    entered not in because of unbelief”
    (Hebrews 4:6)
    The thing that God has accomplished sits before us, open and ready for a people to step into the River Jordan. While the former generation hold prayer meetings and discuss how God needs to open the door to their entering His fulness; a new generation is hearing the call. They who sit in faithless inactivity fail to understand that the truths of the parables of the pounds and the talents declare to us He has given us great ministrations of His Life it is what we do with them which determines the glory revealed in and through us. To declare that God is the one holding us back is to intimate our spiritual condition is due to His providence rather than our own unbelief. The River parts as His People step into it. It is unbelief to pray to God to give what has already been given (Exodus 14:15-16). Unbelief cloaked in religious activities has been the sin of many a generation, yet within these times of unbelief God has a people who are rising up to take the promise of their day and their hour. Such is the crisis/opportunity of today. In the midst of this unbelief there is a new generation arising which will not be denied for their hearts cannot linger in the “religion” of unbelief and a faith which does not produce the works of the Son. The veil has been torn (past tense) and to ask God to open the veil which has already been accomplished is the faithless expression of unbelief.
    To say that the reason God’s people live in such spiritual poverty is because of God’s unwillingness to open the way in; is to lay blame for their spiritual condition upon God rather than themselves. This is a fearful place to walk in.
    I have been blessed to see the rising up of this new generation where faith takes them beyond the impotence of many in this hour, the closed little church groups and fellowships who have grown stale meeting in former things. Many are failing to realize the new way, the new dawn and the new faith required to finish what God has begun. While the bones of one generation bleach white in the sands of unbelief a new one arises with added grace to enter in and displace the enemies who have too long held the Land of our inheritance. It is a day to rise up and to feel the fires of Him pressing us to walk in the “hinds’ feet” of His provisions. It is not a day to linger in the valley of vain words, religious meetings and wordy discussions. It is a day of rising, it is a day of shedding the unbelief which has come to those who once knew of the fires of faith and now linger consoling one another with words rather than the works and admonitions of faith.
    There are some even here who have been to me lights which are shining in the dark. Their words convey a faith not learned by reading books or hearing sermons but a faith which is the very gift of God to know intuitively there is a Land filled with the Glory of God which is beyond the reach of the religious, but easily accessible to a childlike faith. It is a great consolation to me to see these voices arising which are speaking better things than the jealously of Saul, the gainsaying of Korah, and the greed of Balaam. These are they who know of the cry within their hearts for the Unity for which the Son prayed; these young ones will not allow jealousy, apathy and high-mindedness to deter them from this reality. They understand and know the truth of Isaiah 58, it is the true fast of the Lord which is one of doing and becoming rather than the Pharisaical works of the flesh. It is to such that Jesus speaks “suffer the little children to come unto ME”. They are not schooled in the unbelief of our day, they know and care little for great men, they have been enamored by the ONE who matters. They care not to sit at the feet of men for they have an anointing which teaches them all things. For they who love not know not. They who pray for God to move in their midst while ignoring their brethren have not seen nor touched God’s heart. Locked up in the blindness of religion and self-importance they can neither see nor hear the Cry of God’s heart for His Inheritance to be ONE in the Son as He is in the Father. We are here to be the answer to HIS prayer and desire in the earth. It is to that end we are to live, move and seek the welfare of His people.
    They who are hearing His voice in this hour know deep within the recesses of their hearts that the final outpouring of His Spirit will not fall on a divided and sectarian people. The New Wine will only be poured out into a New Wineskin. It is because of this truth burning within those who know God who are rising up in this hour with a burden for His people to forsake the way of the carnal wineskin which is old, inflexible and held together with the carnal energies of those who would seek their own glory and not His. They try to patch things rather than to simply step into the New. There is only ONE NAME in which this will happen and His Name JESUS and it is above all others… In this coming move of God there will not be Pentecostal, Baptist, Alliance and the thousand other names in which men have sought to differentiate themselves from the others. It will be a people whose whole identity is in Him and they seek His Glory only. It will be upon a people who so minister the life of Jesus where they will rejoice when others go further in knowing Him than themselves. It is from such a heart that Paul cried out…
    “I say the truth in Christ, I lie not, my conscience also bearing me witness in the Holy Ghost, that I have great heaviness and continual sorrow in my heart. for I could wish that myself were accursed from Christ for my brethren, my kinsmen according to the flesh”
    Romans 9:1-3
    This is the heart which draws the anointing from God. It is to such God can entrust the power and the wonder of His ways and wisdom. These are they who know that the ministration of the Holy Spirit is not about them, it is about His People and His Inheritance. This is where the New Wine will be poured out without measure. While many would separate themselves from God’s people and pray for God to move, it is these who spend their energies pouring out their lives to make this so. Faith without works is not a living faith. Elijah prayed for the “child of promise” which had died and when the prayers were not answered he stretched himself out and identified with that dead body (three times) in order to see it arise (1 Kings 17:19-22). Religious people pray and do nothing; they who are of the truth spend themselves with every fiber of their being to see this truth come to pass. Any truth which does not cause an individual to identify with God and His People is not truth but simply a teaching.
    “But he that doeth truth cometh to the light,
    that his deeds may be made manifest,
    that they are wrought in God”
    John 3:21
    One cannot hold faith or truth within their hearts
    and be without the deeds which are borne of them.
    * Note: In the midst of a whole generation failing the purposes of God at Kadesh Barnea there were those of that generation who walked in the faith and fire of God. These are they of whom it is said they followed after a “different spirit” than the generation who declared the enemies were too large and strong…
    “But my servant Caleb, because he had another spirit with him, and hath followed me fully, him will I bring into the land wherein to he went; and his seed shall possess it” (Numbers 14:24)
    The promise of entering in is not based upon teachings or doctrines it is determined by the spirit in which one walks with God. While many linger in things which are dead and passing away, even things which twenty years ago had life, they now must give way to the New and the New can only be known by having ears to hear and a heart to obey.
    “Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old. Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth…”
    (Isaiah 43:18-19)

  3. AMEN! This is the greatest burden placed my own heart.

    The words of the young Elihu in the book of Job are pertinent as they usher in the bright revelation of God.

    When the beginnings of revival among the young were being stifled by the “experienced” in my own hometown a few years back, I wrote this down:
    “When we God first came to us, pulled us from the mud, and set our feet on solid ground, we wanted it for everyone else; we were zealous and humble enough to proclaim the difficult truth and the wonderful hope. The Lord was saving souls, breaking chains, and weaving hearts together in His grace & truth. Then suddenly, we looked at what God had accomplished and began patting ourselves on the back. Pretty soon, He had left our midst and nobody even noticed.”

    Then the other day that scripture came to mind regarding the love of many growing cold due to the increase of lawlessness and I wrote:
    “The iniquity of the world is no excuse for the dimming of your flame. Don’t let it get to you.
    Without the fire of God’s holy love burning brightly, you won’t endure to the end in the growing cold.
    If any spark of God’s love yet smolders in you, let it be fanned into flame for the purging of all things contrary to Him. We are supposed to be the beacons of its pure light, which by simply being present cuts through and exposes the spiritual darkness for what it is.”

    • Amen Brendan!!!!!

        Hi Tony,
        I am new to here, I was not aware of your wordpress site until yesterday when I received from an old acquaintance an email with your dream about the young people that God is raising up. I’m not sure why I got the email; was as it because when he read your writing he thought of me as part of the Joshua/Caleb company or perhaps he thought of me as of the company of the ten unbelieving rebels. He did not say. However I will take advantage of your generous openness to briefly ‘reply’ to your dream and replies.
        I have no doubt (through reading the word and hands on experience) that God is raising up a company of young people that will do exploits and enter into the fullness of the purposes of God. But to carpet bomb a whole generation of God’s older people is not wise. We read in Hebrews 11 about many who died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off, and were persuaded of them, and embraced them, and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims in the earth. So the bottom line is that ‘God is the Judge’ of each one of us regardless of age. There is a true religion and James tells us what it is. “Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, to visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction and to keep himself unspotted from the world”. Note that James says to be fatherless is an ‘affliction’; as it is in the natural so it is in the spiritual’.
        As I get older and my body deteriorates (but my spirit is as young and healthy) I begin to identify unashamedly with old Simeon and very very old Anna. My prayer to God these days as I find myself becoming more and more incapacitated in body is that I could end my journey as Anna & Simeon did theirs. The carnal mind would call those two religious, just sitting around listing to tapes from forty years ago, locked into the religious world of their day, and not having a clue as to the purposes of God. But the truth is, who was more Spirit filled and anointed than Anna & Simeon in their day?
        I was mentored/discipled in an era of much ‘sowing of the seed of the word of God’. You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to see that there was not much fruit come out it…….yet. Many many were faithful in their ministry of sowing but the word says that one sows and another reaps. In this hour God is raising up another faithful ministry but this time ‘of reaping’. And these ‘reapers’ will not despise the sowers but that both he that soweth and he that reapeth may rejoice together. And herein is that saying true, One soweth and another reapeth. I sent you to reap that whereon ye bestowed no labour: other men laboured, and ye are entered into their labours. John Chapter 4.
        As the young generation that crossed Jordan had to immediately undergo circumcision and so young people prepare your hearts for the circumcision that you must partake of so that the spots of this world and the reproach of Egypt be rolled away from you. No generation gets a free ride.
        In closing I’ll leave you with this Scripture:
        2nd. Corinthians 10:18
        For not he that commends himself is approved, but whom the Lord commends
        May God Bless each one of you all the way through your journey, and remember the pace through the wilderness was determined by the weakest not the strongest. Be ye also patient, stablish your hearts: for the coming of the Lord draweth nigh.

      • No carpet bombing, as you call it, occurred. This was a vision given to me by the Lord I simply wrote down what I was shown. You are correct in the fact that God judges hearts and I believe that I was being shown those whose hearts had grown cold. I do not recall anywhere in my posting condemning the entire church to being spit out of the Lord’s mouth for being lukewarm. The sad thing is that many Christians both young and old confuse being lukewarm with being on fire for Jesus. This should be every believers prayer to have the Lord search their heart and make sure the fire is burning brightly for all to see.

  4. Hey Brendan good to see you…
