Blessed be the name of our God forever and ever. He gives wisdom to the wise and gives knowledge to those who have understanding. He reveals deep and secret things. He knows what is in the darkness and light dwells with Him (Daniel 2: 20 – 22)
I received an interesting dream from the Lord yesterday 6th March 2019. A very vivid and colorful dream. It was more of an experience, than a dream. It was as though I was literally there. I would like to share it with the brethren for their edification. It is a warning dream that admonishes us to keep watching for the soon return of our Lord Yeshua ha’ Mashiach, and not to get entangled with this world!
The dream is thus:
I was in a grandiose house. An exceedingly large mansion like a castle. It was circular in shape and I could see that there were very high walls all around. Right at the middle of the house inside, there was a circular swimming pool or water feature. The house was open in the middle, so that the swimming pool or water feature was open to the sky. Inside the house, the rooms was well furnished and the lighting was soft and dim. The light was too dim for my liking.
The house was filled with guests both male and female. Many guests, who seemed to be enjoying themselves and having a good time. They were dressed casually and were all having some wine or whisky glasses in their hands. Some guests were reclined on wooden beds next to the swimming pool, with earphones plugged into the ears, watching videos on their phones! Some of the guests were also smoking cigars and cigarettes. Some were moving or dancing to some music that they themselves could hear, but I could not.
Although I could see the commotion of a party all round, there was total silence around me. I could see people having conversation, but could not hear anything. I could see people dancing but could not hear the music. There was total silence all around me. All I could hear were my own thoughts! I began asking myself, “What am I doing here?”
I began to move around the house as I observed what was going on. As I walked around the house, I could see people looking at me as though I was a weirdo! As they looked at me with distaste and disapproval, some of their thoughts actually came to me:
“What is wrong with this one?”
“This one is not having any fun”
“This one is from where?”
“How comes he doesn’t want to join us?”
Such thoughts came from them to me.
I sensed it very late in the night. Nonetheless, I saw no one leave. In fact, the guests seemed to be very very settled at this house. No one was in any particular hurry. No one was ready to leave. It’s as though the guests also belonged here. I also realized that this was not a party that had just started. This party seemed to have started a long time ago, and had been going on and on and on!
When I realized this, I began telling myself, “It is time to leave” “It’s time to leave”. I began to look for an exit but could not find one. I looked up from the swimming pool area and noted that the walls were very high, something like 10 meters high (30 feet), and so I knew I could not be able to scale those walls.
There was a man near me and so I approached him. I told the man, “It’s time for me to leave.”
He told me that there is a custom to this party; the owners of the house must whip a guest before he or she leaves. Since I had decided to leave, then I must be whipped before I can be allowed to leave. The man told me that I would receive two lashes of the whip and should not worry even if the whip tore my flesh apart.
And so I stood against a wall, as the man went to call the owners of the house to come and beat me. As the hosts were being called, the other guests started gathering around me to witness me getting whipped. Two well-dressed gentlemen came accompanied by two scoundrels to do the whipping. My decision was firm, it was time for me to leave and so I stood firm waiting to be beaten.
The dream ended and I woke up! (Hallelujah, I did not get whipped)
Matthew 24: 48-51 “But if that evil servant says in his heart “My Master delays in His coming,” and begins to beat his fellow servants, and to eat and drink with the drunkards, the Master of that servant will come on a day when he is not looking for him and at an hour that he is not aware of, and will cut him in two and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites. There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.”
Luke 21:34-36 “But take heed to yourselves, lest your hearts be weighed down with carousing, drunkenness, and cares of this life, and that Day come upon you unexpectedly. For it will come as a snare on all those who dwell on the face of the whole earth. Watch therefore and pray always that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass, and stand before the Son of Man.”
1 Thess. 5:4-8 “But you brethren are not in darkness, so that this Day should overtake you as a thief. You are sons of light and sons of the day. We are not of the night nor of darkness. Therefore let us not sleep, as others do, but let us watch and be sober. For those who sleep, sleep at night, and those who get drunk are drunk at night. But let us who are of the day be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love, and as a helmet the hope of salvation.”
The messages are consistent now, “It is time to leave”. Be encouraged brothers and sisters. I believe it is near, at the doors!
