Deception, Another Dream

 

I had the dream below back in October of 2016. The reason I re-post it is because of a dream I had last night 06/14/2017 that I will post below this  dream.

I had a dream the morning of 10/15/2016. In the dream I saw a crowd of people gathered around a man The people were holding their Bibles. The man appeared to be a healing evangelist and he appeared to have healed a person crippled in a wheel chair. Then he went to those gathered around who had witnessed this so called miracle and tried to take their Bibles and exchange them for the ones he had. From what I remember in the dream, no one gave up his/her Bible. This so called healing evangelist gave me the creeps. I was shown the so called Bible that this man was trying to give people. It was as thick as a Bible that I am accustomed to seeing but the many of the pages were blank. It seemed to only have a few scriptures in it.

The Lord warned us about these times.
Matthew 24:24

For false christs and false prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect.
The people gathered around this person didn’t give up their Bibles which tells me that they weren’t deceived. However, Jesus also said the following:

Matthew 12:39

But He answered and said to them, “An evil and adulterous generation seeks after a sign, and no sign will be given to it except the sign of the prophet Jonah.

These people should not have not been gathered around this man as believers. We are told not to chase after signs but instead signs should follow believers.

Mar 16:17 — Mar 16:18

And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.”

The dream  warns of deception.  If signs point to anyone other than Jesus then I would say  they are  not from God.

 

In this latest dream I was seeing a sermon that I  had gotten ready to preach some 20 years ago but ended up giving it to my then pastor. In the sermon I was dealing with  Abraham, Issac and their servant who was sent to seek a bride for Issac .

In this story, Laban is the character who I want to deal with.

Gen 24:29-31 Now Rebekah had a brother whose name was Laban, and Laban ran out to the man by the well. (30) So it came to pass, when he saw the nose ring, and the bracelets on his sister’s wrists, and when he heard the words of his sister Rebekah, saying, “Thus the man spoke to me,” that he went to the man. And there he stood by the camels at the well. (31) And he said, “Come in, O blessed of the LORD! Why do you stand outside? For I have prepared the house, and a place for the camels.”

Rebekah’s brother Laban is a picture of many Christians today in that they, as was Laban, are enamored by gifts. In this case the wealth of Abraham and Issac that the servant displayed in the giving of the nose ring and bracelets given to his sister Rebekah is what caught Laban’s attention.

Today, many Christians chase after those who have gifts, i.e., prophecy, healing, etc. Note that it was after seeing the visible gifts displayed by the servant of Abraham that Laban welcomed him into his home calling him blessed of the Lord.

Herein lies a grave danger for believers to be led astray.  Jesus had this to say about those chasing after signs and wonders.

Matthew 12:39

But He answered and said to them, “An evil and adulterous generation seeks after a sign, and no sign will be given to it except the sign of the prophet Jonah.

Jesus never said that you would know them by their gifts but rather you would know them by their fruits.

Mat 7:15-16 “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. (16) You will know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thorn bushes or figs from thistles?

It is worthy of note that after speaking this in verses 15 & 16 of Matthew chapter 7, He says the following in Verses 21-23 of Matthew chapter 7.

Mat 7:21-23 “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. (22) Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ (23) And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’

Should any think that Jesus is speaking to non believers I off the following:

Act 19:13-15 Then some of the itinerant Jewish exorcists took it upon themselves to call the name of the Lord Jesus over those who had evil spirits, saying, “We exorcise you by the Jesus whom Paul preaches.” (14) Also there were seven sons of Sceva, a Jewish chief priest, who did so. (15) And the evil spirit answered and said, “Jesus I know, and Paul I know; but who are you?”

It is not the gifts of an individual that will give him/her entrance into the kingdom of heaven but rather their fruits and how Christ has been formed in them, i.e. can Jesus be seen in them.

Note that the demon did not recognize the Jewish exorcists because they had no relationship with Jesus.

What is worthy of note is that Rebekah was not enamored  by the gifts as was her brother Laban. She, who is a type of the bride of Christ left all to become the bride of Issac as the true body of Christ will leave all to become the bride of Christ.

  1. Brother, another angle is the lure of the world, whether it be money-material things, worldly power/success-not evil in themselves, but idolizing those things….

    See the warning in Luke 16:13 You cannot love money and God at the same time.

    Who do we love?

    Also where your heart is, there your treasure is also….

    Luke 12:34

    Had a brief dream last night… a word about war, in the dream I heard sirens
    sense is it is soon

    Before bed, I ask the LORD how much time do we have before this happens?
    He showed me a season, but I am waiting for confirmation to be sure this is His voice…

    I believe that through the upcoming calamities in the US, some people will awaken in the Spirit…

    Humility comes before honor Proverbs 15:33, 18:12

    Pray!

    In JESUS’ name, Peace and Blessings to you and all who visit this blog…

  2. Where is it? Would like to read it…
