The Beautiful Church

Christ’s small sheep
I received this dream in 2020 after receiving a number of warning dreams by God. It was an answer to my plea, ‘Lord, show me something good amongst the rubble of all the future suffering’.
I dreamt that I was in my Church here in France where I live, it was a Sunday but there was only a skeleton crew there, a pastor and a couple of elders. In my dream, they didn’t know me and treated me as a newcomer. After the sermon, I was taken aside by an elder to talk, she seemed to be trying to discern my reason for being there. Once she felt confident in me, she invited me to a dinner at her place.
I was transported to a beautiful apartment in a Chicago neighborhood. The dining room had a long table set for a maximum of 15 people, there was a fire going in the fireplace and it was peaceful. The woman I saw appeared and invited me to come to the living room where I met the pastor and his wife, and a handful of people from the church. The pastors wife lovingly removed from me my jacket, a sweater and two big breastfeeding pillows that were heavy and hanging around my neck. I felt so cared for, as I looked around, a voice explained things as I looked around at the people in the room. This was the real church. The church building that I knew was just a shell that was strictly monitored, the real message of Christ could not be preached there, it remained to attract the few chosen of God. The dinner church services took place once a week, on interval days and locations. Groups were small, and hand-picked by God. Everyone had a close relationship with Christ, and spiritual gifts that they used for the churches edification. The woman who invited me, evidently had a a gift of discerning the people of God. The group was small, intimate, and like a family, everyone trusted eachother and were there for God and one another. I believe that the visual beauty of the apartment I saw represented the spiritual beauty of this underground church. Even if they had to be wise in their meetings so as not to get caught, there was a confidence in God, a fearlessness, a modesty, and assurance in who they were in Christ and what God called them to do. In addition, the love for one another was ardent and pure, absolutely lovely! I have to say, I love my church and pastor and I have very close relationships there, but this church was in a league of it’s own, the likes of which I have never experienced. Brothers and sisters in Christ, we have something good to look forward to before we are raptured!
10 But he knows the way that I take; when he has tested me, I will come forth as gold.
19 Now those who had been scattered by the persecution that broke out when Stephen was killed traveled as far as Phoenicia, Cyprus and Antioch, spreading the word only among Jews. 20 Some of them, however, men from Cyprus and Cyrene, went to Antioch and began to speak to Greeks also, telling them the good news about the Lord Jesus. 21 The Lord’s hand was with them, and a great number of people believed and turned to the Lord.
