The Glorious Cloud, The Ladder and The Huge Kettle! – Humbled for Service


The Glorious Cloud, The Ladder and The Huge Kettle!

Humbled for Service

Psalm 28: 7 [7] The Lord is my strength and my shield; My heart trusted in Him, and I am helped; Therefore my heart greatly rejoices, And with my song I will praise Him.

Yesterday morning, the 8th August 2020, I had a short interesting dream which I believe is from the Lord. This dream is a call on all of us to ensure that we are covered and protected in the Lord Jesus Christ. And especially those who have not given their lives to Him, this is the time to do so.

I wish to share this dream, which am sure will edify the readers. The dream is thus:

In the dream, I saw myself standing outside in an open area. And high up in the sky, there was a cloud. Just one cloud, a huge cloud. It was not the same as the clouds we see. This cloud looked like it was alive and like there was fire inside of it. It was shimmering and glittering, and glitters of many different colors sparkled from within it. It was glorious and very desirable, and inviting at the same time.

I instantaneously knew that this cloud represented the presence of God, or He was inside of it.

As I was looking at the cloud, a ladder appeared. It came right in front of me, and terminated in the glorious cloud. This ladder was about half a meter (2 feet) wide such that only one person could climb at a time. It was made of very strong circular bars, both the side rails and the rungs. There was something unique about this ladder. At the middle of this ladder, the material changed from ordinary metal and became a beautiful dark golden color. I instantaneously knew that one had to climb and aim to reach past this middle section.

There were people around me although I did not know any in particular. I began to urge them to come up and climb the ladder.

As I was calling people to go up the ladder, a huge kettle came out of the glorious cloud. It looked like the modern hot water kettles. It had a long goose-neck spout. It came out of the glorious cloud and stood right next to it on my left side. Both the glorious cloud and the kettle were about the same size. That’s just how huge this kettle was.

The dream ended.

My interpretation of this dream:

The cloud represents the presence of God. The Ladder represents the Lord Jesus Christ, the way to the Father. The hot water kettle represents the wrath of the Father that is about to be poured upon this earth. “Hot water” as it were, is about to be poured onto this earth.

The ladder symbolism is telling us that the only way is to hold on to the Lord Jesus Christ, and to keep going up with Him. And letting go will result in a fall.

The change of the ladder mid-height is a call on all of us to come out of the ways of this world, and into a close walk with the Lord. It also speaks of the transformation of those who will be found in the Lord Jesus Christ, those who will escape the wrath of the Father, and be hidden from the time of Tribulation soon to beset the earth.



Genesis 28: 10 – 17

[10] Now Jacob went out from Beersheba and went toward Haran. [11] So he came to a certain place and stayed there all night, because the sun had set. And he took one of the stones of that place and put it at his head, and he lay down in that place to sleep. [12] Then he dreamed, and behold, a ladder was set up on the earth, and its top reached to heaven; and there the angels of God were ascending and descending on it.

[13] And behold, the Lord stood above it and said: “I am the Lord God of Abraham your father and the God of Isaac; the land on which you lie I will give to you and your descendants. [14] Also your descendants shall be as the dust of the earth; you shall spread abroad to the west and the east, to the north and the south; and in you and in your seed all the families of the earth shall be blessed. [15] Behold, I am with you and will keep you wherever you go, and will bring you back to this land; for I will not leave you until I have done what I have spoken to you.”

[16] Then Jacob awoke from his sleep and said, “Surely the Lord is in this place, and I did not know it.” [17] And he was afraid and said, “How awesome is this place! This is none other than the house of God, and this is the gate of heaven!”


Exodus 13: 21-22

[21And the Lord went before them by day in a pillar of cloud to lead the way, and by night in a pillar of fire to give them light, so as to go by day and night. [22He did not take away the pillar of cloud by day or the pillar of fire by night from before the people.



John 14: 1- 6

[1] “Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. [2] In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. [3] And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also. [4] And where I go you know, and the way you know.”

[5] Thomas said to Him, “Lord, we do not know where You are going, and how can we know the way?”

[6] Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.


Ezekiel 24: 9 – 14

[9] ‘Therefore thus says the Lord God:

“Woe to the bloody city!

I too will make the pyre great.

[10] Heap on the wood,

Kindle the fire;

Cook the meat well,

Mix in the spices,

And let the cuts be burned up.

[11] “Then set the pot empty on the coals,

That it may become hot and its bronze may burn,

That its filthiness may be melted in it,

That its scum may be consumed.

[12] She has grown weary with lies,

And her great scum has not gone from her.

Let her scum be in the fire!

[13] n your filthiness is lewdness.

Because I have cleansed you, and you were not cleansed,

You will not be cleansed of your filthiness anymore,

Till I have caused My fury to rest upon you.

[14] I, the Lord, have spoken it;

It shall come to pass, and I will do it;

I will not hold back,

Nor will I spare,

Nor will I relent;

According to your ways

And according to your deeds

They will judge you,”

Says the Lord God.’ ”

Be blessed.


Your brother in Christ, William

    Another interpretation of the ladder is… as the ladder changed from regular metal into heavenly material halfway up, we who hold fast to the Lord will be changed 3.5 years from when the Tribulation starts (mid-point) if we hold fast to Christ.

    (Note: Your correspondent believes in a Post-Trib rapture, but is always mindful not to be dogmatic about things the Lord has not specifically revealed. There are many who hold to a Mid-Trib rapture. It is probably best to hold to a “Pan-Trib” rapture… that which says, “I will prepare to endure persecution to the end, but any time God wants to take me up between now and then would be deeply appreciated.”)

    Are you familiar with St. John of the Ladder, aka. St. John Climacus? He was a father of the church way back in the early years of the Church. He preached and wrote a book about how the Christian life is like a ladder you climb up to heaven.

    Cal Parkdein & Anna!

    Your interpretations of the ladder are valid.

    I was also thinking it could mean “The God who is totally man, and the man who is totally God”. The One who came from heaven to earth, not only to show us the Way. But also to make the Way through the Cross and His Blood. And that is the Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of Man. (Matthew 1:23)

    Another meaning could allude to the 5 wise bridesmaids (the golden part) and the 5 foolish bridesmaids (the normal) part. Because the more time we spend with the Lord in prayer and reading His Word, signified by the climbing of the ladder, the more prepared we become. (Matthew 25: 1-13).

    The Ladder can as well reflect the difficult and narrow road by which we must enter. (Luke 13:24). A road where we can only succeed if we keep our eyes looking ahead, and never looking back. Because if we look back we will be scared and fall. (Luke 9:62 , Genesis 19:26)

    Wow! I believe there could be many interpretations.

    Thank you and God bless,
