Still playing church? (Part 1)

Every Knee Shall Bow
May God bless you all my dear brethren. This will be a two parter. I pray you take the time to read and consider both parts. Especially Part #2. All dreams, visions, and words the Lord is heavily and mercifully outpouring these days on all flesh are for the SOLE purpose of conforming US into what He wants us to be. For getting us to that place where we need to be. These are not for our amusement. These are to be taken into our prayer closets. To be shared as led by the Holy Spirit. To be checked and double checked in the scriptures. Don’t you feel your cup overflowing yet? His presence is so palpable lately, not only to love and comfort, but also to confront, to teach, to transform.
Let me briefly share my heart with you, my family in Christ. Sometimes I feel scared and hesitant to share things. I fear people won’t respond. That they will hear, but not respond. It’s not fear of rejection but because I know we will be giving an account for every time the Lord spoke and we decided not to act… and that gives me a holy fear. Our Lord is Holy and long suffering. I pray we are not hard headed and stubborn when we hear His voice.
Ezekiel 22:25-28 reads:
“There is a conspiracy of her prophets in the midst thereof, like a roaring lion ravening the prey; they have devoured souls; they have taken the treasure and precious things; they have made her many widows in the midst thereof. Her priests have violated my law, and have profaned mine holy things: they have put no difference between the holy and profane, neither have they shewed difference between the unclean and the clean, and have hid their eyes from my sabbaths, and I am profaned among them. Her princes in the midst thereof are like wolves ravening the prey, to shed blood, and to destroy souls, to get dishonest gain. And her prophets have daubed them with untempered morter, seeing vanity, and divining lies unto them, saying, Thus saith the Lord God, when the Lord hath not spoken.”
I had this dream on November 5, 2021. In this dream I had been invited to be in charge of the devotions at a church. I remember preparing the devotions on a piece of paper and folding it. When I got there I saw it was a pretty big church (500-600 members) and it was full of people. On my way to the main stage (altar) where devotions would be held I could see lots of commotion like when people get ready for the beginning of a big event. It was very noisy and as I walked up the stairs I heard people telling me I was not to use those steps because I could scratch and damage them. Those were never to be used because they were only for decoration. I had then to find the hidden way to get up the stage. I was very anxious about the noise and realized I did not have with me the paper with what I had prepared.
Before it was my turn there was a lady in charge of singing a couple of hymns to the congregation (solo hymns) and I went back down to try to find my paper. The chairs were placed in a theatre like fashion on all four sides of the building, so there were people with their backs to the main stage (altar). As I walked underneath the seating area I saw the pastor of the church and his wife, kind of seated in a semi hidden area. They looked very relaxed and I recognized both of them (this pastor is someone I know) and I realized I was in this pastor’s church.
My turn was coming and I went up without my paper and was very nervous. I stood behind the pulpit and everyone was talking. I could not believe the distraction in this place. Then a man with a headset stood in front of me. I then realized the service was being recorded. He was directing it. I noticed people would be quiet while things were being recorded and ‘relaxed’ when recording stopped and cameras were off. The man cued me to begin but I didn’t know what to say. He then said, losing his patience with me: “whenever you’re ready we begin”.
Then the Lord spoke to my spirit and said I would say what He told me. So I began saying that we should begin with a prayer of repentance. Everyone gave me a weird look. Some were uncomfortable and others like they didn’t know what they should do. There was so much pride that no one wanted to pray for repentance. I proceeded to explain that it was necessary for us to remove the barrier of sin so we could have communion with the Lord.
Then I heard many voices (some with an arrogant tone) say: “Remember grace. Remember grace. I live by grace.” I replied under the anointing of the Holy Spirit that what God wants is to have communion with us through the cleansing power of Jesus Christ’s blood. Then I saw that the whole congregation had gathered in small groups of 3-4 people making circles. They were waiting for instructions and I did not understand why they would make groups if repentance is an individual affair. I understood they were trying to ‘comply’ with the request made without really fulfilling it.
As I was getting ready to begin praying a voice that came from the control cabin spoke on the speakers and instructed a man named Pierre to lead the prayer. I then looked to my right and there was a man standing in front of the mic, ready to begin praying. His face and chest were all full of pride. I knew if he led the prayer it wouldn’t be done in the spirit (under God’s anointing) and I felt very sad. I then asked him to please allow people to pray in silence and have a moment with the Lord before he finished the prayer. As the congregation began praying I saw how difficult and almost impossible it was for many (almost all) to repent. I was led to say on the microphone: “Brethren, if any of you doesn’t come up with reasons and ideas for repentance, please let me know and will give you some personal examples.”
There were people that had gone outside the main building (patio area) to pray, but I could still see them through the glass doors. Inside the building, after a couple of seconds people began chatting informally in their small circles, but I noticed outside, people began praying in the spirit and having a real repentance experience before the Lord. Right then Pierre began praying in order to finish this prayer of repentance.
Then the Lord gave me a Bible passage, but I didn’t know the exact Bible scripture where it was. I knew we were to read that next. I didn’t have my Bible and asked people around to pass me one so I could check it out. People passed me cell phones and a tablet, but I just couldn’t make them work. I needed a real Bible but there seemed to be none available. At this point people were visibly upset with me because the service was not running smoothly and as they expected. It was not perfect and they had to keep interrupting the recording. I knew they were losing their patience with me but I continued. I could feel the Holy Spirit there with me and leading me.
I then said: “Look, I don’t have the devotions I prepared with me. And the Lord told me He would tell me what to say. So He says we should look in the Bible for a verse saying (and I said part of the verse). Please if anyone finds it let me know. No one did and a woman I know appeared on my side with an open Bible. She said: “It’s Thessalonians 2”. I asked her: “1rst or 2nd?” She replied: “2nd, verse 12”. Then a voice behind me said: “Read the whole chapter”.
As I was to begin reading it under the anointing of the Holy Spirit, a woman’s voice began reading it on a microphone. Apparently she was the person appointed to read the scriptures, the announcer. I turned to her and said: “Sorry, you can’t read. I have to read it because the Lord will tell me what to say as I go”. She didn’t even hesitate and continued her reading. I then repeated the same words trying to get her to stop. At that moment I looked in front of me (on the side where people’s back are facing me because they are seating looking towards the front just like me, seats were placed like in a stadium fashion) and a woman whom in the dream it was made known to me was lesbian, stood up and turned looking right at my face. She was wearing a white clergy collar, very tight clothes, had an open Bible on her hand and was the person who would be preaching that day. The unclean spirit in her knew I was under the anointing of the Holy Spirit of God and was furiously staring at me. At that moment I stopped being so polite and told the church: ” Do you know what the problem is in this congregation? You don’t let the Spirit speak. God wants to speak to you (I knew because He was using me to get to them), but you don’t let Him. He has no space to speak here. “
End of dream.
Interpretation and brief comment:
This dream is pretty self-explanatory but I wanted to highlight how people that repented (very, very few) were able to do so outside the main building of this congregation. Many people believe this is an experience you need help with or ‘expert guidance’ when it’s not so. Psalms 51:17 states “My sacrifice, O God, is a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart you, God, will not despise.”
If you don’t know how to please/ obey the Lord on something. If you’re struggling with sin and feel you can’t please the Lord. If you feel you can’t forgive and you know we all have to. Please, go to the Lord and tell Him. You can’t do it on your own, only through His grace. You need HIM every step of the way to overcome the flesh. Go to Him. Cry and ask. Press on. He has won your victory already!
I invite you to please follow up with part 2 of this post. God bless.
Passage given in the dream: (emphasis on verse 12, consequence of believing the lie… refusing to love the truth and be saved.)
2 Thessalonians 2:
“Concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our being gathered to him, we ask you, brothers and sisters, not to become easily unsettled or alarmed by the teaching allegedly from us—whether by a prophecy or by word of mouth or by letter—asserting that the day of the Lord has already come. Don’t let anyone deceive you in any way, for that day will not come until the rebellion occurs and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the man doomed to destruction. He will oppose and will exalt himself over everything that is called God or is worshiped, so that he sets himself up in God’s temple, proclaiming himself to be God. Don’t you remember that when I was with you I used to tell you these things? And now you know what is holding him back, so that he may be revealed at the proper time. For the secret power of lawlessness is already at work; but the one who now holds it back will continue to do so till he is taken out of the way. And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord Jesus will overthrow with the breath of his mouth and destroy by the splendor of his coming. The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with how Satan works. He will use all sorts of displays of power through signs and wonders that serve the lie, and all the ways that wickedness deceives those who are perishing. They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie 12 and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness. But we ought always to thank God for you, brothers and sisters loved by the Lord, because God chose you as first fruits to be saved through the sanctifying work of the Spirit and through belief in the truth. He called you to this through our gospel, that you might share in the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ. So then, brothers and sisters, stand firm and hold fast to the teachings we passed on to you, whether by word of mouth or by letter. May our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who loved us and by his grace gave us eternal encouragement and good hope, encourage your hearts and strengthen you in every good deed and word.”
