DREAM RECEIVED Jan. 7, 2021 (as originally submitted but NOT YET published)
Folks, I have had some weird dreams, but this one is a doozy. I believe it was given to me by the Holy Spirit to share with you. So here it is:
The dream begins with me seeing a huge closet or storeroom full of all kinds of shoes . . . all sizes for male and female.
Then I’m shown a huge room or factory type facility with this ‘Big Machine’ that seems to almost fill the entire floor space. The Machine was antiquated, really ancient looking, as perhaps something you might have seen in a factory during the industrial revolution. It was quiet . . . motionless. The Machine had once provided jobs for a lot of people who had to wear ‘special shoes’ when operating the machine. Since the machine was broken and the factory was closed, all those ‘special shoes’ were stored away and the workers had gone their separate ways. All was silent.
Fast forward . . . there was a bit of a stir in the old factory. The ‘Big Machine’ was coming home! There was great anticipation from a group of the old workers who had gathered to celebrate it’s return. You see, the Machine had been sold some time ago for salvage. However, much to everyone’s surprise, the guy who bought the ‘Big Machine’ as scrap metal, decided not to melt it down but instead he set about to RESTORE it. The huge metal ‘SHOES’ which powered the Machine had been full of grease and crud that had built up over generations of use. The Machine had not been properly maintained and that’s why it was broken. It was so old that no replacement parts were available. So the guy making the restorations used what he had. Over a very long period of time he lovingly and painstakingly refurbished every moving part, cleaning and tightening anything that was loose. He took very special care with the metal ‘SHOES’ as he knew no matter what he did to the rest of the machine, nothing would work if he couldn’t get the ‘SHOES’ to power up the Machine.
I saw a small group of the old factory workers who had gathered to celebrate and in their midst was one of their elderly co-workers, a lady, who was on a stretcher and was using oxygen. She was weary and told those with her to go on ahead to celebrate with the others. She would watch from where she was. They did not want to leave her side, but she insisted that they must go on ahead or they would miss the celebration. This lady watched as her friends and co-workers greeted and hugged each other and started jumping up and down, singing and rejoicing. She smiled and was so happy at the sight she saw. When her friends came back to check on her, she had passed away with the smile still on her face.
Then . . . I saw the huge metal ‘SHOES’ from the ‘Big Machine’ (somehow temporarily detached from the Machine) go into the storeroom where all the ‘special shoes’ belonging to the workers were stored. The next image was . . . THE STOREROOM WAS EMPTY!
The last scene of the dream was the ‘Big Machine’ working at full capacity. It had been updated with what appeared to be sleeping quarters for the workers all over the sides of the Machine (sort of like berths on a passenger train). The workers no longer went back and forth to their homes but dwelt and rested with the Machine so that the work could go on without interruption. As the Machine operated it made a soft pleasant sound, no clanking or obtrusive noise of metal against metal, just a gentle whir. There was a liquid-like oil flowing through it that made it seem ‘alive,’ like the oil was it’s life’s blood and kept it working smoothly. I saw at the very end of the dream one of the workers who was dressed like ‘Rosie the Riveter’ and she was working at her station. Suddenly she came upon something that had evidently been lost or stuck inside the Machine. She pulled it out with glee and said, “Aha, there you are. I’ve been looking for you!”.
End of Dream
“I’ve Just Seen Jesus.” (As I was waking, I was hearing this song in my spirit)
(The rendition I listened to while writing this dream was performed by Sandi Patti and Larnelle Harris. I won’t type the lyrics here, but please listen to that song. I believe it will give insight into this dream.)
John 14:12-21(KJV) – Scriptures given to go with this dream
12) Verily, verily, I say unto you, he that believeth on Me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.
13) And whatsoever ye shall ask in My name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.
14) If ye shall ask anything in My name, I will do it.
15) If ye love Me, keep my commandments.
16) And I will pray the Father, and He shall give you another Comforter, that He may abide with you for ever.
17) Even the spirit of Truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth Him not, neither knoweth Him: but ye know Him for He dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.
18) I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.
19) Yet a little while, and the world seeth Me no more; but ye see Me: because I live, ye shall live also.
20) At that day ye shall know that I am in My Father, and ye in Me, and I in you.
21) He that hath My commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth Me: and he that loveth Me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest Myself to him.
My dear brothers and sisters in Christ, I do not pretend to know all this dream is trying to convey. Much of this dream is symbolic and very deep. Perhaps the Holy Spirit will reveal to each reader, what He wants them to apply personally. I will share what I feel the Spirit showed to me as I was typing up the dream. I’m sure there is more here than has been revealed to me. I so wish we still had comments allowed so all could share their ideas. Below, please see a few of my thoughts on this dream but it is certainly open to other interpretation:
The ‘Big Machine’ = GOD’S PLAN OF SALVATION
The ‘Big Metal Shoes’/The Restorer = JESUS CHRIST HIMSELF (The Way, the Truth, the Life)
The Oil/Life-Blood of Machine = THE HOLY SPIRIT (Matt. 25:1-10)
The Workers = THE BODY OF CHRIST/BELIEVERS
The ‘Special Shoes’ of the Workers = THE GOSPEL OF PEACE (Eph. 6:15)
The FEW WORKERS (showed up to celebrate ‘the return’) = THE REMNANT BRIDE/HARVEST WORKERS
The Lady who passed = Saint who did not live to see the day (representing the great cloud of witnesses)
Folks, God’s plans will not be thwarted. All will be fulfilled. HIS KINGDOM WILL COME! Yes, there are scoffers who think it’s all a bunch of baloney. They laugh at our belief in the ONE TRUE GOD, saying only a weak person would believe he needs to worship God. They say our God is ANTIQUATED and not worth anything but to be thrown upon the trash heap of history.
Nothing could be further from the truth! Yes, this dream reveals that we as the ‘Body of Christ,’ have done a poor job of ‘maintenance’ and have allowed the enemy to come in and attempt to defeat our God, but I am here to tell you that our Lord LIVES, and because HE LIVES, we will LIVE ALSO!
God has reserved to Himself a Remnant that will ‘PUT THEIR SHOES ON’ and get to work. They will work night and day doing kingdom work. They will find the ones who are ‘stuck’ and ‘lost’ and say, “Aha, there you are, I’ve been looking for you!”
Let me remind you, that at the end of the dream, the storeroom that held the shoes was empty. There were only a FEW who showed up to celebrate the ‘return’. I ask you, what do you think happened to all those other shoes? Something to ponder.
God bless you all, as we await our Lord’s soon return.
Yours for the Harvest,
2 Tim. 4:7-8
This is the end of the post as originally submitted in early January, 2021.
I am strongly compelled to re-submit this post with the following comments and I hope you will understand why:
UPDATE & FINAL COMMENTS:
This morning, March 21, 2022, I was led to watch a new YT video posted by Pastor Dana Coverstone. The title was “The Shutting Down the Machines” Dream which streamed March 15, 2022. You can imagine my surprise and curiosity when seeing such a title. It has been over a year since my unusual dream about a ‘Big Machine.’
This is not the first time that the Lord has linked my prophetic dreams to Pastor Dana’s. In August 2020, when I received the Banner Vision, “SLEEPER CELL ACTIVATED,” Pastor Dana also was told in one of his dreams (same time period) that ‘sleeper cells had been activated.’ However, the sleeper cells in his dream belonged to our enemy . . . they were the dark forces of Satan who had set up shop in a ‘slaughterhouse.’ The ‘sleeper cell’ (singular, unified as one) in my vision referred to the SPECIAL FORCES of the Lord God Almighty!
NOW, in March 2022, Pastor Dana has been shown a ‘MACHINE’ that belongs to our enemy . . . a ‘Machine’ that represents the plans of the dark forces of Satan. In his dream, the offensive forces of the Lord (God’s SLEEPER CELL, if you will) unite under the direct guidance of the Lord to attack and take down the enemy’s ‘Machine.’ After accomplishing the destruction of that one ‘Machine,’ the Lord directs His troops to go forth and continue to decimate the forces and plans of the enemy . . . to utterly destroy and dismantle Satan’s ‘Machine.’
The last paragraph of my dream in January 2021, according to the interpretation given to me at that time, represented the fact that THE FEW, the Remnant Bride, the First Fruits (whatever name you want to use), were now united with Jesus and were about their ‘Father’s Business.’ I believe the servants called to participate in the Harvest were already working in the Harvest Field utilizing ‘THE BIG MACHINE’ and the special SHOES they had been given. The fact that I was given the song, “I’ve Just Seen Jesus,” was very significant. The FEW had already been transformed!
“I’ve just seen Jesus, I tell you He’s alive. I’ve just seen Jesus, our precious Lord alive.
And I knew, He really saw me too; It was as if till now, I’d never lived.
And all that I’d done before, won’t matter anymore.
I’ve just seen Jesus, And I’ll never be the same again!”
These scriptures come readily to mind which I have been given as explanations in previous posts:
1 Cor. 13:12 – “For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.”
1 John 3:2 – “Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that when He shall appear, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is.”
Phil. 3:20-21 (Interlinear) – “For our citizenship is in Heaven, from where we also wait for a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, who will transform our body of humiliation, for it to be conformed to His body of GLORY. According to the working of His power, even to put all things under Himself.”
Perhaps there is a reason this dream was originally declined for publication. It was not God’s ‘appointed time.’ I believe that Pastor Dana’s dream, has given much more insight into my dream, “The BIG Machine with SHOES.”
GOD HAS A PLAN! Satan has a plan that is diabolically opposed to God’s plan. Both of the ‘MACHINES’ referenced in these two dreams (mine & Pastor Dana’s) are about the culmination of both plans. As recently shared in the trilogy, ‘Just Me & My Puzzle’ (3 parts), God’s ‘Plan of Salvation’ to redeem His creation was set in motion at the very beginning when God said, “Let there be Light.” I talked about how Satan was ready and waiting as early as Gen. 3:1 to put his plan into action also.
Folks, this battle that has been raging from eternity past is coming quickly to its conclusion. The title I was given for my dream is very important. You see, God’s Machine is BIGGER and MIGHTIER than Satan’s Machine. God’s Machine had BIG SHOES that walked this earth for 33 years.
My Lord frequently speaks to me through song lyrics. When writing the trilogy mentioned above, I was given two songs: “Thy Word is A Lamp Unto My Feet” & “Above All.” I know the 1st song was about Jesus being ‘the LIGHT’ and the 2nd song was a confirmation that Father God thought of us ‘ABOVE ALL’ from the very FIRST DAY of creation. But the 2nd song also speaks of what Jesus Christ did while on the earth.
“Crucified, laid behind a stone, You lived to die, rejected and alone,
Like a rose trampled on the ground, You took the fall,
And thought of me – ABOVE ALL.”
When Jesus hung on the cross and His life’s blood was poured out for you and me, with His last breath He said, “It Is Finished!” Satan saw Christ’s death as his victory, but that was the very moment the enemy of God became a defeated foe! GOD’S PLAN OF SALVATION WAS ACCOMPLISHED! Christ’s example has shown us how to win the victory . . . how even all creation will be restored (see A Golden Nugget, posted 3-03-22). It’s time for the great harvest . . . for us to put on our ‘Special Shoes’ and share the gospel. It’s also time to follow our Commander and King into the heat of the battle. Remember what He said in the ‘Charge of the Light Brigade’ portion of ‘13th Its Too Late.’ Christ goes before us! We are the ones who take chase when the enemy is already in retreat! He Lights our way!
“When I feel afraid, Think I’ve lost my way, Still you’re there right beside me.
And nothing will I fear, As long as You are near, Please be near me to the end.”
My fellow soldiers, it’s time, as Pastor Dana’s dream portrays, to take up our battle axes (our weapons of war – Eph. 6) and pray without ceasing. Special Forces, prepare to charge . . . to utterly destroy the enemy’s Machine. Listen for our Lord’s command, raise your axes at the ready . . . when He says, “NOW!”
“ONE FOR ALL, ALL FOR ONE!”
