My Dreams and Visions

Dreams and Visions

God’s Army

I had a dream where I was in a room with other soldiers who were about to embark on a mission. I remember being in uniform as well but taking into account the enormity of what it meant to wear the uniform. I also remember being unsure as to whether or not I wanted to go with them. In the next part of the dream I was kneeling beside a dying soldier. The soldier gave me his dog tags before he died.

In the next part of the dream I was about to go down this narrow dusty road. I remember people, many people, standing behind me watching me as I embarked down this narrow road. In the dream I had no knowledge as to who they were. What I do remember is that I didn’t look back.

Here’s what I sensed in the dream (s). In the first segment of the dream me being in uniform along with others also in uniform signifies that I was among those who were Christians and that they were cognizant of the fact that they, just as in the United States military or any other country’s military for that matter, had signed  a blank check, if you will for their commander, i.e. Jesus, to fill out as He saw fit. My hesitancy in the dream is because I realized the magnitude of the decision to wear the uniform I had chosen to wear and the costs associated with it. Remember, Jesus said that he who loves his/her life will lose it but he who loses his life will find it.

In the next part of the dream I was kneeling beside a dying soldier who had given me his dog tags. I believe that this could have been the transference of a mantle. Mantles are of no use in heaven as they are not needed but they are of great use on earth. Being that I was with this dying soldier tells me that I overcame my hesitancy and joined God’s Army on the field of combat. It is of further note that I received the dying soldier’s dog tags on the battlefield and not in a building called church.

In the last part of the dream I believe that the crowd behind me were those unwilling to walk the narrow path I was about to embark on. You see this path is a lonely road. Embarking upon it can mean the loss of friends, family, jobs, your very life. I do not  remember looking back. Remember what  Jesus  said in

Luke 9:62

But Jesus said unto him, No man, having put his hand to the plow, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.



I believe that the dream is indicative of the times in which we live. Those who like the concept of being part of God’s Army but want to serve on their own terms won’t make it. This is an all or nothing commitment. 

Whom Do You Worship?

A few questions before posting my dream.

When reading the Bible, do you believe what you read or read what you believe? 

Do you Fear a God who has the power to cast both physical body and soul into an eternal he’ll from whence there’s no escape? 

Now to my dream.

I had a dream where I saw a church completed with pews and pulpit. I saw a congregation seated ready to hear a sermon. I saw the preacher standing at the pulpit ready to give it. However, this is where things were different.  In back of the pulpit where one would normally see a Cross there was instead a large golden calf. I watched the preacher turn from facing the congregation towards the calf. The calf had a door in its side that the preacher opened and inside it contained what looked like a Bible which the preacher took out and began to preach to the congregation from.

Think of the characteristics of the golden calf.

It has no life in it nor can it impart life.

It can’t see

It can’t hear

It can’t speak

It can’t do anything.

Does this sound familiar? 
Exo 32:1 — Exo 32:9


The Gold Calf

32​ Now when the people saw that Moses delayed coming down from the mountain, the people gathered together to Aaron, and said to him, “Come, make us gods that shall go before us; for as for this Moses, the man who brought us up out of the land of Egypt, we do not know what has become of him.” And Aaron said to them, “Break off the golden earrings which are in the ears of your wives, your sons, and your daughters, and bring them to me.” So all the people broke off the golden earrings which were in their ears, and brought them to Aaron. And he received the gold from their hand, and he fashioned it with an engraving tool, and made a molded calf. 

Then they said, “This is your god, O Israel, that brought you out of the land of Egypt!”

So when Aaron saw it, he built an altar before it. And Aaron made a proclamation and said, “Tomorrow is a feast to the Lord.” Then they rose early on the next day, offered burnt offerings, and brought peace offerings; and the people sat down to eat and drink, and rose up to play.

Notice that the people contributed to the making of the golden calf. Jesus said where your heart is there is also your treasure. 

Aaron fashioned the golden calf from the golden jewelry received from the Israelites. 

Then, after seeing the people’s reaction to it built an altar to it and declared, “tomorrow is a feast to the Lord”.

It states that after the people brought their offerings they rose up to play which means that they had an orgy.

I will go back to what I asked at the beginning of my post. Does it strike terror in your heart to realize that God  can cast both body and soul into hell .

Or, is the “god”, you serve one made by human hands whom you do not have to worry about leading a sinful life because it doesn’t see what you do, hear what you say, and cannot speak so as to correct you or take action to discipline you.

I will end with the following quotes from A.W. Tozer

“Any objection to the evangelistic methods of our present golden-calf Christianity, is met with the triumphant reply, “But we are winning the lost!” 

And what are you winning them to? 
To true discipleship? 
To cross-carrying? 
To self-denial? 
To separation from the world? 
To crucifixion of the flesh? 
To holy living? 
To nobility of character? 
To a despising of the world’s treasures? 
To total committal to Christ? 
Of course, the answer to all these questions is NO!”


A.W. Tozer

Let us beware that the Jesus we “accept” is not one we have created out of the dust of our imagination and formed after our own likeness.

Crossing Over the Treshhold 

I had a dream where I was speaking of a dream I had. In the dream I saw an open door. I remember going through and once I crossed over the threshold there was no going back.  I remember the door closing behind me as I crossed over the threshold. I sense this as an invitation and call from God. The reason I say this is because the following scripture from Revelation is what I am sensing.

Revelation 4:1


The Throne Room of Heaven

4​ After these things I looked, and behold, a door standing open in heaven. And the first voice which I heard was like a trumpet speaking with me, saying, “Come up here, and I will show you things which must take place after this.”

The open door represents revelation but such revelation comes with a price. 

I am reminded of a dream I had 4 years ago which I will post below.

I had a dream where I saw two very large doors that no man had opened in a very long time. Then I saw the doors open but I couldn’t see inside because it was dark as there was no light in the room. Then I heard  in my dream, “treasures of darkness” . I looked that up the following morning and here’s what I found.

And I will give you the treasures of darkness, and hidden riches of secret places, that you may know that I am Jehovah, who calls you by your name, the God of Israel.
(Isa 45:3)

The threshold  represents commitment. 

Mat 9:27 — Mat 9:29

Two Blind Men Healed


When Jesus departed from there, two blind men followed Him, crying out and saying, “Son of David, have mercy on us!”

And when He had come into the house, the blind men came to Him. And Jesus said to them, “Do you believe that I am able to do this?”

They said to Him, “Yes, Lord.”

Then He touched their eyes, saying, “According to your faith let it be to you.”

The reason I post this scripture is because the blind men received their healing after coming into the house which meant that they had crossed over the threshold and thus committed to entering the home where Jesus was staying.

In summary  the open door represents revelation while the threshold represents commitment. 

As with any dreams or visions I post take this to the Lord and see what He prayerfully reveals to you.

Spiritual Warfare 

I had a dream just before waking the morning of the 22nd of February.  In the dream I was in some sort of finished basement as there were furnishings and I believe the floor was carpeted. I remember praying and binding the enemy when all of a sudden I was grabbed by the front of my shirt and lifted off my feet. I knew that a demon had grabbed me most likely because I was threatening his territory. I do not remember being afraid and commanded the demon to release me which he did but not gingerly, I might add. I could sense that he was still around perhaps with a few other demonic beings. I saw nothing, mind you, only I could sense their presence. I’m not sure as to  why I was in a basement. I do remember saying that this was my home and took authority. I live in Arizona where most homes don’t have a basement.  So I am thinking that the basement could represent something spiritual.  Maybe I was getting close to something that was being hidden. These are just a few thoughts I had on the dream.

Let Not Many of You Be Teachers

James 3:1

3​1 My brethren, let not many of you become teachers, knowing that we shall receive a stricter judgment.

I use the above scripture because of a dream I had last night 02/13/2017. In the dream I saw a man bound with his hands behind his back being held or detained by an angel. The man was looking at a line of people being cast into hell. What I came to realize in the dream was that the man being detained was their pastor. Apparently he had taught false doctrine which these people believed and now we’re being cast into hell. However, he being their pastor, was made to watch.

As with any dream or vision I post, take it to the Lord in prayer and see what He says to you.

Big Ben

I’ve had several dreams concerning Great Britain.  The latest was last night. In the dream I could see Big Ben and the hands on the clock’s face were both in the 12 o’clock position. I remember hearing the bong of the clock’s Bell sounding as well.

That for the time being was the extent of the dream if I am given further revelation I will add it to this post.

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.

God’s Light vs. Man

I had a vision that I was shown a few days ago where I saw what looked to be the inside of a very dimly lit church. The lighting was so dim that I could barely make out the people seated in the pews. I saw that each person seated had a flashlight in their hands. I saw a man standing behind a pulpit, the pastor I presume, holding a flashlight as well. I then watched as the person standing behind the pulpit shone his light on individuals seated in the pews. When the individual(s) would shine a light towards the man in the pulpit, he would duck hiding behind the pulpit. It is interesting that the people had no place to duck and get away from the light of the man standing behind the pulpit while the man standing behind the pulpit could duck and avoid having a light shone upon him.

Several things scare me about this vision. First and foremost is the fact that there was no light and the light that was there was man made. Secondly the fact that this man made light, i.e., a flashlight, was being used by both the man standing behind the pulpit and those seated in the pews says to me that accusations were being made only the man behind the pulpit had the advantage of hiding behind the pulpit to be able to avoid having the light shone upon him while those seated in the pews had no such advantage.

To say that this represented, even remotely, how the body of Christ was meant to operate would be a travesty. Furthermore to say that there was fellowship happening would also be a travesty. True fellowship is described as follows:

1Jn 1:5-7 This is the message which we have heard from Him and declare to you, that God is light and in Him is no darkness at all. (6) If we say that we have fellowship with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth. (7) But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin.

The light of Christ  is to bring us into fellowship with Him and with each other. It is not a game of, “gotcha” as I perceived to be occurring in the vision I was shown. Light exposes darkness but not for the purpose of being found out but rather being set free. The first act of God’s creation was light and that was not the  creation of the sun but rather the light and knowledge of God’s presence as man was created to walk with God naked and unashamed in His light.

 

 

Sparrows 

I had this particular dream that I am posting  several months ago.  I don’t usually post personal dreams but I am doing so now.

In the dream my wife and I were seated upon a park bench. Then, in unison, we both lifted our arms like one would see a scarecrow only, in our case, seated. I then saw Sparrows who had just learned how to fly perches on our arms.

The dream represents, I believe, new Christians and my wife and I am place of refuge and safety whole they grow strong and can go out on their own. Jesus stated that a Sparrow doesn’t fall to the ground apart from His Father’s will.

Matthew 10:29

Are not two sparrows sold for a copper coin? And not one of them falls to the ground apart from your Father’s will.

From this verse it would seem that sparrows are both inexpensive and seemingly unimportant yet the Lord says not a one will fall to the ground apart from the Father’s will.

I believe that it is a great responsibility to guide, direct, and protect new believers and this is something that is woefully lacking in the institution called church.

Sign of the Son of Man

Mat 24:30 Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.

I’ve had this vision stuck in my head for several days. In the vision I saw a cross in the sky. The cross was bright and very large. In fact, I do not remember seeing the sun. So the cross could have in fact have been brighter than the sun which is why I didn’t see it. I then saw 2 groups of people. There were those who were doubled over as if in pain and anguish kneeling on the ground. Then there were those with hands raised and were welcoming the sign in the sky.

The next verse, Matthew 24:31, says:

Mat 24:31 And He will send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they will gather together His elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.

I did see in the vision that those who had their hands raised were expecting His return so they rejoiced to see the sign and it was those whom I saw ascending heavenward.

As with any vision and/or dream I post on this blog take this to prayer and see what the Lord speaks to you concerning it.
