Dream: The contractions are getting closer and more painful – Ivette Ellis
August 22, 2018
The Bride ran frantically around looking for a place to give birth in the large bathroom. Her water had broken. I knew that I was to help and could see that it would be a messy birth. Perplexed by the fact that she had on a wedding gown, yet aware that she was getting ready to undergo much discomfort; repeatedly, she said: “the contractions are getting closer and more painful.” My greatest concern was that she would go into birth without a proper birthing place. I had to stay close by to help with the birth. The bride was exhausted, and her dress was dirty because she had been searching for a birthing place. However; somehow, she was peaceful and very ready for the birth to come forth. To my amazement, she did not have a large tummy. End of dream.
The birthing of the Bride of Christ is about to happen in this hour. She finds no place for the birth because it will be unconventional in the process. She has come through many battles and is disheveled with grime on her garment from the past seasons of adversity. In the birthing, she will be made pure. For this reason, she remains secure and in peace in the Lord Jesus. She knows that he will perfect all that concerns her because he is faithful to complete whatever he starts. She will be loved to the uttermost in a complete work of power in all areas of her life. Some mid-wives in the body of Christ have been assigned to those who will give birth to their true identity in Christ. The mid-wives will know who they are assigned to and will take great care to ensure the birthing is as comfortable as possible, although they know that it will be messy, just as natural birth is messy.
