A Dream about the Bride of Christ:
In the dream I was an observer watching what was going on. I was in a room packed with representatives of every philosophy and form of religion. The room looked like a retreat house. Each representative was taking a turn talking and expounding upon the value of their beliefs.
The scene changed and there was a radiant woman driving a car winding up a mountain. She was lost and going in circles and zig-zagging on the mountain roads trying to find the retreat house. She was nervous and afraid, but finally found the location. She parked her car next to the others in the dirt lot and entered the retreat room.
The scene changed and I saw her walk into the room. No one acknowledged her. They were all in dark shadows. All I could see were outlines of various shapes that were icons of the various belief systems. I knew all the world’s philosophies and beliefs were gathered. The radiant woman was the Bride of Christ. She was all light, no shadow. When she entered everywhere she stepped the room lit up.
She went to a place to the left side of the room and sat on the floor. She leaned against a chair, but did not sit on the chair. All the others were sitting on a chair. She folded her arms across her chest and stretched out her legs in front of her. She crossed her ankles. As she crossed her ankles I realized she was naked. As she sat there she listened, but said nothing she did nothing and she never sat in her chair. (Chairs represent seats of authority.) It was obvious as well that all the others completely ignored her and just kept doing their thing. Her presence did not stop them from proceeding with their dialog.
After awhile she got up, left the room and left the retreat house. She walked and walked. She was looking for her cabin. She passed up cabins and houses, tents and trailers and kept walking searching and looking but none of them were her cabin. At the end of the walk was a pier looking out over a vast body of water. The end of it could not be seen. She stood with the wind blowing her hair on the end of the pier. Directly in front of her appeared to escalators; one going up and one going down. People by the hundreds were walking toward the escalators, some went up joyfully. I could hear them laughing and singing. They disappeared into clouds. Some went down and disappeared into darkness that moaned. She stood and watched this process for quite some time and then turned and made her way back to the retreat house.
When she got there, a very kindly gray-haired man greeted her and said: What you need is this coat and directions. He wrapped her in a beautiful white robe. At that moment, I realized her eyes had been covered with scales. They fell off as the robe/coat wrapped her. The kindly man drew a map for her and handed it to her. It was a map to her cabin. She thanked him, they hugged and she started walking following his directions. She walked through beautiful lush green forest of pine and there was her cabin. All the others she had seen along the way were tiny and made of stone or wood, hers was huge and glowing made of something not of this earth.
That was the end of the dream.
When I woke up the Lord immediately gave me Revelation 3:14-19. The dream was about the condition of the Bride of Christ and the hope for her future. Right now she is looked upon by people as the representative in the world of one of many religions and philosophies of life. She is leaning on but not fully sitting on her seat of authority in the earth. She is lost, blind and naked. She sees the vastness of what God has for her. She sees people going to hell, but because she cannot find her place of authority, she is not fully partaking of what God has for her and she is not winning people who are trapped in the world’s “many paths” thought pattern. She is nervous and afraid. The Hope is the Holy Spirit, the kindly man, is helping her to wrap herself in righteousness, to follow His directions (the Word of God) and to find her place. For she is to dwell in the place of life and she is the place where heaven meets earth, through whom the rivers of life flow. My prayer is that she learn, repents, takes her seat of authority with eyes open, ears open, clothed in righteousness. Lord begin with me, in Jesus Name. AMEN
