A dream about the sleeping Church
Hi there. Thanks for visiting the blog. If you have not been here before… May I suggest you take a few moments to read the Welcome post? It explains the purpose of this space and gives you an idea of what this blog is about. You can read it here: https://everykneeshallbow.cw.center/hello-world/
This dream was given in the morning of October 16, 2020
I had been fasting and seeking the Lord when God gave me a dream in form of a parable and later, after praying and looking for its meaning, His Holy Spirit revealed the interpretation. God was leading our household to hold Holy Communion as a family on October 31, 2020 and I had been preparing a Bible Study for my teen sons regarding this topic. After the dream, the Lord showed me it was to be used as an introduction to the Bible Study on I Corinthians 11:23-32.
I pray so that He reveals through His Holy Spirit the truth enclosed in this dream. Not only that you understand the interpretation, but that you see within your spirit an important message He wants to convey. That we are ONE with Christ. Please take all you receive to Him in prayer. Amen.
I will tell the dream and then provide the interpretation given by the Lord.
13 Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand. 14 And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Esaias, which saith, By hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and shall not perceive: 15 For this people’s heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them. 16 But blessed are your eyes, for they see: and your ears, for they hear. 17 For verily I say unto you, That many prophets and righteous men have desired to see those things which ye see, and have not seen them; and to hear those things which ye hear, and have not heard them
In my dream I was receiving a group of 12-15 people on my property. They were a group of young people with their coach who could not perform their activities anywhere else and I had offered my land and dwellings for them to carry out their training and activities. (In real life my son is an athlete and they have had many issues finding a place to train properly where they are not found in violation of the law regarding COVID-19 restrictions where we live.) However, the emphasis of this dream was not on what they were doing or who they were, but their feelings and attitudes throughout the dream.
So I happily offered my property and welcomed them. I was their host. This was a fenced property, with spacious land, simple, and safe. They were happy, thankful, and expectant to this new and different place for them.
I saw myself showing them around and hosting their visit. They kept coming and they would just use the green areas surrounding the main house. Days passed and at a certain moment we saw a great disaster happen outside the fence. I did not see exactly what it was (for I believe that was not relevant), but it was something that involved many things we all fear in our daily lives. There was violence, stealing, a big accident, rage… We all saw it and felt it, but they were amazed and happy to see how that could not touch them on their side of the fence. They were protected.
Time passed and I opened the main big house for them. I saw their faces when they entered for the first time. There was a sense of reverence to their demeanor. They were again expectant and really thankful. I was happy too. The house was a house of work and production. That’s what the Lord put on my heart in the dream to describe this house. I allowed them to go to the most private parts of the house. They used the main hall, bedrooms, and bathrooms. It was such a great feeling for me as a host. All the time I was reminded in the dream they were in my house. It was my house. They would come daily, use it, and I would host them.
Later I’m in my bedroom and go to sleep for the night. In the morning I hear they are coming, but I stay in bed. I went from being aware on my bed to going back to sleep. This happened on and off and every time I was aware I could hear them speak around me for they had kept coming to the house and carrying out their activities. I did not go out of my bed and would hear them speak now in a different way. Their attitude had changed and they did not show the respect and appreciation for being in my house they had shown before.
I did not like that, but I did not get out of bed. I had a very uncomfortable feeling in my spirit. I went back to sleep. I would open my eyes and hear more people. They were having conversations about their lives, doing their things etc… At one point a couple of them entered my bedroom and I was in the bed. They entered and exited without looking at me. There was not recognition of who I was. They were in my house doing their thing. I didn’t even know what they were doing anymore for I was in bed, far from them.
I was sad and knew I should not be in bed, but although I could get out, I would not. I went back to sleep and at some point when I opened my eyes I see there is clutter around me. There is stuff in my bedroom that was not there before. People had been entering my room leaving stuff there that I did not put there. They were using my house and property their way and not mine. They would not consider me for anything they did.
I felt horrible, sad, mad, and very frustrated. I had to get out of bed. I wanted to interact with them. It was my biggest desire to interact with them. It took me a great deal of effort to incorporate. I was very weak for all the time I had been asleep. I had no strength. Getting up was a battle, but I finally managed to do it. In my mind there was only one thing: I must go and host them again. I had love in me to do it. I wanted to straighten things for them for they were only about their business now.
When I finally walk I get myself to the bathroom to wash the sleep off my face and be alert again, two young ladies entered the bathroom. I then feel happy I’m able to engage with them again. However, they do not acknowledge me in my own house. They do not even know who I am. That saddened me deeply. I decide I will give the people in my property (all around it and inside of it) the things that I had seen cluttered in my bedroom. I felt I could give them away for they were in my property. I started offering those things with the hope people would come close and I could engage with them again and get their attention. I felt desperate and just did that. There was a mountain of “stuff” and as soon as I started giving that away I could see hands around me ready to get the stuff. However, as soon as I passed those things to them they disappeared and left. I was not even able to see their whole bodies, just hands and arms stretched to get those things. I felt I was giving away my stuff although it was strange and unknown to me. At one point I held up a white dress with the image of a female anime on it and I thought: How did this get here? There is no way this could have ever been mine. However, I also thought: But this is what they like… I wanted to please them so they could come closer to me. Nevertheless, as soon as they took the stuff they would leave.
I decided to go outside the house to try to engage with them again, to talk to them. As soon as I try to walk I notice my right leg is of a dark purple color from the knee down. I can barely walk and in my spirit I know this is a lethal disease. I am dying. I look on a mirror and the same dark purple color I can see across my forehead. That prevented me from being able to speak well. I could only gargle words and they had not much volume to them. I desperately try to carry myself outside to reach the people that had exponentially grown in number. There were so many around. I carry myself outside knowing I’m dying and lay on the ground. I notice there is no protective fence anymore. I can’t tell my property from the outside. I was irrelevant, unknown, and people were even totally indifferent to the fact that they were OK and I was dying.
Everybody would just pass by. I tried for them to come towards me because I could not walk and could barely speak, but they would not come. I know I have but moments before I die. Then, all my inner attention turned from them to my immediate family. I wanted my two sons and husband to know what had happened to me after I died. I got the attention of a young man standing with his back towards me three feet away from where I was lying. He turns and I beg him to please come closer so I can give him a message for my sons and husband. He looked at me with such disparagement that it hurt deeply. He said: “I can’t go closer to you. Maybe you could spread that to me”. He then turned back to what he was doing. I know that it was an excuse to not help me, because he was not afraid of me. He did not go away, just turned his back to me. I was then allowed to know what it was that he and many others were looking at. They were being entertained by a big event taking place there.
I then felt hopeless. I asked people to at least take a video of me to show my family what had happened to me. They would not even look at me dying.
Suddenly, I hear someone say: Here’s someone that is in your same condition. I am very weak, but I see a man come towards me and I feel the name “Diana” in my spirit. Diana is my sister in real life and I understood in the dream this was not my sister, but a person as close to me as my sister would be.
I feel comforted and a little hope appears in me. When he comes very close to me that I can see his face, I see no illness. I said: But you are not sick. He says: I was, but Jesus healed me. Jesus came to me and held my face in His hands and healed me. I regained hope and with a heart full of faith I said: Let’s ask Jesus to come and heal me. We prayed and when I opened my eyes I was healed. It was quick and immediate. I even wondered why I did not feet the healing in my spirit as many times I feel when the Holy Spirit moves in me. I was told in my spirit: You don’t have to feel it. It was done.
The next immediate scene, as I was able to sit on the floor (I was lying on the ground before), I am in the same position, but in a large room. I can see no one although I know there were few others around me. There is a white door to my right in that room and rushing in, opening the door unexpectedly comes my husband. He does not look at me, but it seemed he was coming looking for people and his head moved around the room like checking for people. I can see the profile of his body and I think to myself: Oh, I am so happy I can tell him I’m healed! I notice though, he did not look the way my husband looks now. He looked exactly as he looked like when he was my boyfriend and we were very young.
Interpretation with relevant scripture below.
When I awoke I did not even remember the dream. The Lord moved me to pray so I could remember all of it. Then I almost discarded it because I could not understand its meaning. He said: It’s a parable. Moments later, He started giving me the
The first thing I said to Him was: “Jesus, in this dream I was you.” But that did not feel right. I’m a woman and I really did not like at all the idea that I represented Him… not at all. I then tell Him: “You can’t be me in the dream because I was asleep not taking care of the people in my house and… You would not do that. You never sleep!”
Then He reveals to me: “Yes, you were Me. You were the Church. My Church. And in the world My Church is Me.” (read in the relevant scripture notes John 17:9-26)
Please brethren, as you read the interpretation understand Church= Body of Christ; not the building people call church. What he has shown me is a parable of the history of His Body (Church), our present condition, and I believe His future plans for us.
· In the dream I represent the Church to whom through Christ has received all that is His. I was able to receive people that under the rules of the world could not perform God’s will (the athletic team). I was teaching them new ways (the Gospel) and providing a place to live for Him
· I was to host and teach them God’s way. Christ was happy when this happened and I as His Church could feel it.
· As a Church I allowed them access to the most private parts of the dwellings (gave access to the house) and all was fine while I was awake.
· As the Church went to a long sleep, even knowing she should not have for the Lord was telling her not to, things of the world got a hold of Her and God’s things
· Jesus suffered this deeply for the Church is Him in the world; these people could not see Him without her
· When sin was too much that even Church was uncomfortable in her sleep, she wanted to do something and be active, but she had been overtaken. She was irrelevant and despised. She was unknown. She tried to please the world to attract them with the same worldly things that infiltrated her while she was asleep (clutter that was given away in the dream). But this would not work to keep them close
· Church was dying of sin that made it stagnant and quiet and even asked the world to speak for her, but this would not be possible. The Spirit told me: “The world does not care about Me or My Church. It hates us.”
· When this happens, (although I believe it’s happening right now – Church dying) the mind of the Lord will change to think only about His Church. Time of grace for others that reject Him will be up. That’s why when in the dream I was close to dying I only thought of my family and totally forgot about the people I had been worried about throughout the dream.
· The person that was close to me as a sister that Jesus had healed, represented the same Church. The support of another saint who led me back to trusting in Jesus. Jesus healing His own Body. Only looking at Him at the verge of dying in sin will He heal His Church.
· Then, the Spirit showed me that it was not my husband entering the room quickly right after I was healed. He said: “In the dream you were the Church and you did not see your husband come through the door. You saw your boyfriend; you saw him before you were married.”
I understood in my spirit that right after the Lord heals His Bride from her deathly wound of sin and restores her, He will come quickly to take her with Him.
Please do not stop praying. Stay close to Him. Please read the following scripture. We must always filter all we read and hear through the scripture. God bless.
35 Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when the master of the house cometh, at even, or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning: 36 Lest coming suddenly he find you sleeping.
9 I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine. 10 And all mine are thine, and thine are mine; and I am glorified in them. 11 And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are. 12 While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name: those that thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled. 13 And now come I to thee; and these things I speak in the world, that they might have my joy fulfilled in themselves. 14 I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. 15 I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil. 16 They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. 17 Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth. 18 As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world. 19 And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth. 20 Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word; 21 That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me. 22 And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one: 23 I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me. 24 Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world. 25 O righteous Father, the world hath not known thee: but I have known thee, and these have known that thou hast sent me. 26 And I have declared unto them thy name, and will declare it: that the love wherewith thou hast loved me may be in them, and I in them.
