Naked and Blind
June 7, 2020 3:42 PM
In my dream, a naked and blind woman needed help. She passed by my house to go to the next door neighbor’s house. I saw the neighbors leaning out their windows yelling “Turn around! Go Back! Go back!” She turned around and started back towards my house. I watched as she made it to my porch. I knew I couldn’t help her until she crossed the threshold. Finally, she crossed the threshold.
Nakedness represents unrepented sin and also not trusting in God but in self and the things of this world.
The threshold is part of a door and from John 10:7 we know that Jesus is the door of the sheep.
The neighbors yelling “Turn around. Go back” means “Repent”. Return to your first love (Jesus). Stop doing wrong and start doing right.
The naked and blind woman knew the Lord at one time but had lost her way. Her sin had blinded her causing her to stumble. She was on the wide path leading to destruction instead of the narrow path leading to life. Going to the neighbor’s house first represents her trying to do things her way instead of God’s way. She was trusting in herself or others instead of Jesus. He alone is the way, the truth and the life. He is the only door.
The way to get back on that narrow path leading to life is to repent.

"Repentance (metanoia, 'change of mind') involves a turning with contrition from sin to God; the repentant sinner is in the proper condition to accept the divine forgiveness." (F. F. Bruce. The Acts of the Apostles [Greek Text Commentary], London: Tyndale, 1952, p. 97.)
5/21/18 (Vision) I saw 2 rabbits in a fireplace behind a grate. They were eating something and seemed unaware of their circumstances. I believe that the rabbits represent those who are asleep to the times and unaware of the danger to their souls if they do not repent. Just like a fire could ignite suddenly in the fireplace and consume them, so too, the sleeping masses.
5/2018 (Word) I heard the Holy Spirit say: “REPENT, REPENT AMERICA. HAUGHTY, FILLED WITH PRIDE. GET ON YOUR KNEES WILLFUL NATION AND REPENT. WORLDLY PEOPLE I ADDRESS YOU NOW. REPENT! REPENT! DO IT NOW!”

Genesis 3:1-7 Now the serpent was more subtle than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? 2And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: 3But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die. 4And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: 5For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil. 6And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat. 7And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons.
