Dream 9-11-09 “Urgent”

Dream 9-11-09 “Urgent”

 

I was given a dream last night and when I woke from it, I immediately sought The Lord for the interpretation of it. This is it as it was revealed to me.

The Dream started out with myself in a room, not very big, and a door, I think it to have been made of metal, but a secure type of door, nonetheless. I heard noises coming from the other side of the door and I braced myself against the door, because I knew whatever or whoever was on the other side wanted to get into this room, or get to me.

I am bracing against the door, really struggling to keep it closed, when this hand comes through the door and grabs me around my knees and starts to pull me against the door with such strength that it hurt badly, I ended up with the door being forced open. I immediately recognized the person on the other side of the door, and I will share later with you who he was.

There were a multitude of people on the other side of the door, as far as I could see, I asked this man what this was and he repetitively told me,” They want to know their names”. The Holy Spirit reminded me of Revelations 2:17 and how Yahushua told John that He would give those who overcome the world “the hidden Manna and a white stone with a new name on it that only the one who received it would know.” Then the Holy Spirit told me that they didn’t know their names because they had never overcome the world, though many believed they had. That will be explained later. These people have not overcome the world and have gotten caught up in the dull mundane world and are working, working, working. BUT at the end of the day what they have done didn’t amount to anything.

Then I was shown these “light bulbs” and some of the people were eating them and they were said to taste a little like honey. I asked about this and was told that these represented “good ideas”, “inventions”, that never amounted to anything. Intended for a good purpose, but never amounting to anything that really mattered.

Then I was shown such an “idea” and it really looked very technical and modern and I thought it to be something of great value, but when it was handed to me, I was told to take it apart and shown how. This thing rapidly fell apart right before my eyes revealing it to be no more than a bunch of plastic parts all nestled inside of each other that were not anything but plastic dish drainers. The Spirit said that people are working day in and day out making “things” that don’t really amount to anything.

Now for the “Urgent” part of the dream and to whom this man on the other side of the door was. This gets very personal for me, and that’s why I had to share it, that YOU might get the same “WAKE UP”, ” URGENT” message that I got out of this.

The man on the other side of the door was my earthly Dad who had passed away a couple of years ago. The Holy Spirit began to show me personally how I too would end up like my Dad if I weren’t careful, getting caught up in the daily “works” of the world. My Dad, when he passed, had a life of hard work and not really a lot of “riches” by the world’s standards. My Mom passed away 9 months after Dad. Their life “savings” didn’t really amount to anything, by the “world’s” standards, and I was left to deal with 60 years of “stuff” that they had “left me” as part of my inheritance. There were 5 barns Dad had built over the years to house this “stuff” that they had placed such value on. I have found myself repeating Dad’s mistakes and enlarging my own barns to deal with “their stuff”, my inheritance. I have been busy, if you will, “working” on “stuff” that at the end of the day, doesn’t really matter that much.

 

 

FOR ME, I had to ask The Lord to forgive me this morning. Forgive me for being so busy about the “stuff” left behind to be an inheritance, that I almost forgot about my MOST IMPORTANT inheritance, my other home with ABBA, Father God. Beloved, I could have been on the other side of that door, with my Dad, and all those others, who didn’t “know their names”.

The Scriptures declare that we “overcome the world, by The Blood of The Lamb and by the words of their testimony”.

Beloved, The Holy Spirit showed me, that many on the other side of the door, sadly, just like my earthly Dad, were deceived and caught up in the ways of the worldly system. They spend their lives doing what the world expects them to do. They teach each other the importance of “working hard to get ahead” and that you can’t have anything if you don’t work for it. There is a lot of good wisdom in there somewhere, but it is misplaced on what it is they have worked for. I am reminded of Matthew 6: 33, “seek ye first the Kingdom of God and His Righteousness, and all these things, shall be added unto you”.

This dream was a “Wake Up ” call, not just for me, BUT to any who would have an ear to hear what The Spirit of The Lord is Saying.

Beloved, there is urgency behind this, as well, WE, ALL OF US, have to get busy about our Father’s Work. We have to take the “Good News” out to those who are caught up in the ways of the world and we have to do it QUICKLY. This world we live in, as we know it, is about to change right before our very eyes, even more than it has in the last year.

God’s people HAVE GOT TO, “Be Ready” for this time and this season. We have GOT TO, get focused on the right things and not the things we see as important, BUT what God TELLS us is important!!!

Trusting in The Lord, ALWAYS !!

I was in a service once, and to make a long story short, God supernaturaly healed my back right there in the middle of the service. Nobody layed hands on me or prayed for me, though I am sure there were some silent prayers, because everybody knew I was suffering BAD that morning. When I got touched ALL the pain suddenly left and I was able to move unrestricted by the pain and tension. I began to dance to The Lord and wave banners to Him.
THEN, the Spirit quickened me to say something profound . Something i would later get rebuked by my then pastor. Here it is, ” If you can’t trust God The Father with your healing or whatever you have a need of, ARE you sure you can trust Him with your salvation?”

Beloved, the time is NEAR and we must TRUST in YHWH with EVERY aspect of our life!!
You can’t believe Him for a partial anything!! You either TRUST Him completely or you don’t!

Another “Movement” ? hmmmm….

I am posting this Email that I got for one reason only, to warn of the dangers of deception. ALL things need to be tested by The Holy Spirit of God The Father. This isn’t done as any anti-semetic message, but only to point out balance is required by all. Enjoy !

‘HEBREW ROOTS’ and “YESHUA ONLY” MOVEMENTS –
DANGEROUS??

Below is a very interesting testimony from a lady who was deeply
involved in these movements.

Like me, you have probably come across Christian groups telling
us Gentile Christians that we need to get back to the Torah and
observe the Jewish Sabbath and Feast Days, etc. This is often
called the “Hebrew Roots” movement – and some of it is fine –
simply learning more about Jewish culture and traditions, etc.
But then there is the very real danger of LEGALISM. To me, the
entire thrust of the movement ends up going right against the
New Testament – in fact, right against true Christianity. I think it
can become very dangerous. -The bondage of the Law again.

And then there are the people who claim that we MUST call
Jesus by the name “Yeshua” – even though the apostle Paul
simply called Him by the Greek word ‘Iesous’. They say that
unless we use “Yeshua” we are totally “off”. Well – I believe
the facts completely overturn this theory. I don’t mind people
calling Jesus ‘Yeshua’ if they wish – but to make a “doctrine”
out of it is extreme error in my view. However, it is amazing the
number of people who are being caught up in all this – as though
it were the “great answer” to all our problems! (It’s not).

Below is the testimony of a woman who was deeply involved:

  “I wanted to share with you why I feel that the Hebrew Roots
Movement & Sacred Name Movement is just as dangerous as the
The Latter Rain Doctrine. Coming out of both I feel confident in
saying so. I grew up in the Assembly of God church, one that did
not teach Latter Rain/Dominion poison. After my husband and I
were married (he grew up Baptist) we began searching for something
deeper ( I think that is how you get sucked into Latter Rain etc.,
you feel like there just has to be something more, sadly the Word
of God is not enough). We began attending a non-denominational
church which would turn out to be one of many disastrous church
experiences.

  This church was heavy Dominionist and were really into the
“shepherding” thing so that they knew everything about everyone
and would use it as a form of control. This was our first experience
with the prophetic movement and we were drawn in by it. After
leaving there because of the control issues (we did not notice the
theology was twisted because we were deceived) we continued
on in the prophetic circles including attending Bill Hamon’s church
when we were able to travel there and reading everything we could
from all the big NAR’s. Well after about 10 years of this running
after new revelation (we had a huge box of tapes with personal
prophecies!) we became really disallusioned with the hypocrisy,
lawlessness and cheap grace attitudes. We decided to leave the
Apostolic/Prophetic church that we were attending. This did not
sit well with the “Apostle”. In these types of churches you do not
leave unless you are “sent out” by the Apostle, which never
happens by the way.

  After leaving we were contacted by a couple that had left a few
months before we had. Before visiting with them, I remember really
clearing going to my bookshelf and taking a book off the shelf that
was a study on Galatians, I know now the Lord was trying to warn
me but sadly I put the book back without taking a look at it. Well
we began to meet with this couple and we shared our frustrations
about the lawlessness, etc. that we had left (at the time I did not
know anything about Latter Rain and how it was connected to the
Prophetic/Apostolic movement, it would have explained so much).

  They gave us a book by Lew White called Fossilized Customs. 
The book has some facts but much twisted truth. We took the bait
though. The whole book is about how the name Jesus is supposedly
pagan along with a lot of other extreme ideas! Thus Sacred Name.
These people believe that you can only use the name Yahweh
when referring to God, the Father and Yeshua (some use Yahushua)
all else is pagan and Satan has deceived all Christians into using
the name Jesus and that Jesus really means Zeus! And this has
been revealed to only the remnant (notice the Gnostic elitism)
which is funny because they pride themselves on staying away
from anything remotely Greek!

Well this began a four year journey with these people. We backed
off a bit of the Sacred name only but began studying many Jewish
writings. You must understand that this was all very gradual and
the leader of this group was very skilled at studying things and
presenting it to us.

  Sadly to say we drifted more and more from the New Testament,
the new covenant and the cross of Christ. That is the danger of the
Hebrew Roots movement. You want so desperately to return to the
Word of God but in the end it takes you away from it in it’s entirety.
The leader began planting seeds such as” the New Testament was
not totally flawless since it had been written in Greek there were
many different texts and some may not be accurate”. He began to
pick and choose and before we ended up leaving he had pretty
much thrown out Galatians and John because it did not reconcile
to his theology! He taught that the Virgin birth was just a doctored
up Catholic version of the Word. He taught that Jesus was Joseph
and Mary’s natural born son even though he could not prove this
scripturely. That is why he brought into question the accuracy of
the translations.

  You are probably saying “how could you stay?” All I can say is
that deception does not happen over night it is gradual, we became
emotionally tied to these people and looked to them as a mother
and father (I think that is why many stay in abusive churches).

We participated in the feasts of the Bible and of course we observed
Sabbath religiously every Saturday (what got me is that instead of
us resting we had to go to the leader’s home early that morning to
hear hours of his twisted teaching!). He began to teach that we
became righteous through the law and that was why Yeshua came
to show us how to keep the law. He actually began to teach that
we needed to keep as much of the Law of Moses that we could
and it was lawlessness not to do so. In essence you basically had
to convert to Judaism even though we literally did not.

  We started to get a clue about a year before we actually cut all
ties and we started to question him about some of the laws in the
Old Covenant and how we were uncomfortable with some about
slavery for instance, of course he came up with some justification
about it. Around this time he began making references to having
more than one wife. My husband and I were really uncomfortable
with these continuous comments and so one day we confronted
him (his wife was not present and by the way it was obvious this
journey was taking it’s toll on her as well by this time.) He told us
he was one of those that could love more than one woman! (There
is double standard because it is unthinkable for a woman to have
more than one husband in their eyes!). We told him “what about
the words of Jesus (in the beginning God made male and female,
etc.) but what was obvious to us was not to him. If it wasn’t in
“Torah” then it didn’t count!

  Well that was it, I cried all weekend and we just began to think
about everything and the path that we had been on and how far we
had strayed from the gospel and it was heartbreaking! I take full
responsibility for allowing myself to be deceived but I must say
that man really messed with my mind! He was skilled in twisting
scripture and to this day I still struggle with some things. I almost
lost my faith in God because of my involvement with these people.
My husband came through a little easier than myself.

  I have to say there are many sects within the Hebrew Roots
movement and not all believe what I have shared. But the core
belief is that the church has strayed from it’s Hebrew roots and
that God is restoring this revelation (the same theme of the Latter
Rain) but only to a select few and the rest of the church is pagan.
Because of this belief you begin to cut yourself off from the Body
of Christ and before you know it you are isolated. You are no longer
the salt of the world. You do not witness or share the gospel
anymore because you don’t believe the gospel anymore!

The very thing that you think is bringing you closer to God (returning
to His word) takes you further away because it is a twisted
perception of the Word of God. My heart goes out to anyone caught
up in this deception because it leaves you so confused. I praise
God that he opened our eyes to this and for His grace and mercy
and for the blood of Jesus which is our true Redeemer!”
