Dream 214 – Jesus, False Miracles and God’s Miracles
Received Wednesday, September 28, 2016
Thank You for another beautiful fall day! Thank You for all we have. Thank You for my friends and family. Most of all, thank You for sending Jesus. He is my best friend, as are You and, of course, the Holy Spirit. Last night I had two dreams, but the first one seemed quite ridiculous.
Dream 1 description begins…
My family and I were on a trip in an area with many meandering paths. One portion was on cliffs by the ocean, other portions were in mountainous, forested areas and still other portions were in deep caves with massive stalagmites and stalactites. The various landscapes were quite fascinating.
The path we were now walking on was roped off so that no one could wander off along the way. However, there were also small areas along the path where a person could stop and pray. Each of these small areas had a shrine to Mary or one of the saints. Each stop also had a plaque next to it that marked a miracle registered by the Pope.
This path soon led us into a deep cave where I saw a weeping Mary statue that all of the tourists were excitedly taking photographs of. I looked up and quickly discovered that one of the stalactites in the cave was dripping water onto this statue’s head, but no one was pointing this out. Instead, the crowd was oohing and ahhing at the ‘wonder of the weeping’.
As our family huddled together to quietly discuss what we were seeing, we all agreed to say nothing about this as we felt strongly that this was the enemy’s battlefield. Not one of us felt that the Lord was calling us to engage. As we continued down the path, we noticed miracle after miracle, but also that not one of these miracles were actually of God.
When we finally came to the end of the path, there was a gift shop where people could either purchase miracles or time with a priest to receive forgiveness. Now, I must admit, I know nothing about the Catholic religion, but I assumed that this priest was supposed to be like Jesus to the Church.
As I approached the area where people were going to this priest for forgiveness, I noticed that these people had to present a small document with their credentials on it, along with a receipt for payment. I wanted to go and see what this was about, but I first asked my family to pray for my protection before I went over to the woman at the cash register to investigate. I then walked over to her.
Me: “Hello, I would like to purchase ‘forgiveness.’”
Clerk: “Alright, that will be $111.11.”
I laughed to myself at the silliness of this payment. As I looked down at my hand, I saw that I only had a twenty dollar bill. I was about to say to the woman that I did not have enough when I heard the Holy Spirit stop me.
Holy Spirit: “Erin, here is the money to purchase the ticket. However, when you approach the priest, do not let him touch you. Instead, wait for instructions.”
Just then, my twenty dollar bill turned to $111.11 in exact change. I now suddenly had a $100 bill, a $10 bill, a $1 bill, a dime and a penny in my hand. I smiled to myself again as, clearly, God wanted to do something with me in all of this.
I handed the money to the clerk and purchased the ticket. However, I noticed that my ticket was just a ticket receipt without any credentials. I was puzzled at this.
Me: “Excuse me, but why do I not have the same ticket as the others?”
Clerk: “You are not qualified.”
Me: “Then how will I receive forgiveness?”
Clerk: “You purchased the ticket and now you will need to have him lay hands on you for special grace.”
I hid how ridiculous I thought this all was from the clerk. As I turned to look at my family, I saw that they were all smiling and holding back their laughter as they also knew that God was about to do something amazing here.
As I started walking towards the priest, I stopped to look around this massive gift shop. I simply could not believe how many items were flying off the shelves. Things were selling faster than the clerks could even stock the items.
There were things for sale such as rosaries, but bad plastic ones, along with ‘Mary snow-globes’. However, the one that really bothered me the most was the ‘Jesus bobble-heads’. The gift shop had even labeled it as, ‘Jesus Staying Upright While You’re on a Rocky Road’.
Okay, so here this entire shelf was dedicated to Jesus remaining steady and upright, yet here was a Jesus bobble-head which never stopped bobbing. It was really just so dumb, but also quite blasphemous.
As I went to stand in line to see the priest, I noticed a ‘produce section’ labelled ‘Fruits of the Spirit’. I saw people purchasing these actual fruits, most quite beautiful, wherein each were labelled one of ‘Patience’, ‘Kindness’, ‘Love’ and so on.
As I got closer to this area with the ‘Fruits’, I noticed that there were stickers on each fruit which had a rendering of the Disciples on them. I could not even help myself from rolling my eyes about this.
Each of these ‘Fruits’ was being sold at a different market price. I started to chuckle when I noticed a half-price area for ‘Fruit’ that was either starting to go bad or was overripe.
Finally, the moment arrived when it was my turn to approach the priest. After he took my ticket and looked at it, he stopped to study me.
Priest: “Why do you come, child?”
Me: “Well, you are going to forgive my sins and save me, correct? As you can see, I bought the required ticket.”
I then heard the Holy Spirit tell me to speak. Suddenly, and with words I knew came straight from God, my lips opened and I began to speak with supernatural confidence. From this point and on, the Holy Spirit was now instructing me on exactly what words I should say and when, all in real time.
Me: “Now, by whose authority have you been given the power to save? What allows you to be called ‘Father’ since I am labelled ‘child’ by your very own lips?”
I saw a shocked look on the Priest’s face. At first, he was speechless and was clearly becoming irritated with my questions.
Priest: “I am an inheritor of the power and authority of the apostles. Bishops and priests of the church exercise the full authority to reconcile and forgive penitent sinners in the name of Jesus. I am a successor of the apostles until the end of the world. I have been given my authority to save by God Himself.”
Me: “Oh, does this mean that I do not need to pray to God, but only to you?”
Priest: “You have no schooling or credentials. You must be educated so that you understand the ways of God. Perhaps you are not to be saved if you are unwilling to go to the instruction manual.”
He then picked up and showed me a Bible.
Me: “I have read the Bible and I know this is the inspired Word of God. However, nowhere have I seen written in those pages that I must go to a man for my salvation. In 1 Peter 2:9 it is written, ‘But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you declared the praises of Him Who called you out of darkness into His wonderful light.’”
Priest: “Exactly. I am a royal priest and the one appointed by God.”
Me: “So am I and this is not just for you. Show me where in the Word that God does not give authority to His children in the name of Jesus? For it is written, ‘And they sang a new song, saying, ‘You are worthy to take the scroll, and to open its seals. For You were slain, and have redeemed us to God by Your blood, out of every tribe and tongue and people and nation, and have made us kings and priests to our God, and we shall reign on the earth.’’ (Revelation 5:9-10)
“It is also written, ‘Jesus came and spoke to them saying, ‘All authority has been given to Me in Heaven and on Earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things I’ve commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.’’ Amen. (Matthew 28:18-20)
“Then it is written, ‘Let us therefore come boldly to the Throne of Grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.’ (Hebrews 4:16). Now, how are you helping here? If God is in me, who are you that I should call you Father?”
Priest: Now quite angry. “Perhaps salvation is not for you?”
Me: “It is written in Joel, Acts and Romans that ‘everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.’”
I then waved my arm and all of the ‘Fruit’ instantly became rotten and all of the idols fell off of the shelves. The Lord then had me speak further and with great authority.
Me: “It is only by God’s grace you will be saved. Turn now to God in Heaven whom is slow to anger and merciful in love. Do not follow those wolves in sheep’s clothing, for with them there is no redemption.”
I could now hear cursing and yelling as people came upon the fallen idols and the rotten fruit. The Lord then had me wave my hand again and all the fruit suddenly became perfect, but with no slogans written on them. A fountain with spring water then appeared. Then the Lord spoke yet again through me via the Holy Spirit.
Me: “Now, eat that which is good and drink that which refreshes.”
The priest approached me in order to touch me. However, I quickly backed away from him before he could do so. I then tossed my ticket to the ground. Just before this dream ended, I could see that very few people were even interested in the restored fruit and spring water.
Dream 1 description over. Dream 2 description begins…
I packed my suitcase into a white car to head to my destination in Portland, Oregon. Portland was the place where I was saved. Upon arriving in Portland, the car I was driving suddenly turned into a bicycle. While I was much younger physically and now looked like a twenty year old, I was still my current age in wisdom and experience.
I peddled my bike to an area near the Pearl District in northwest Portland. I pulled up a chair to a massive wooden oblong table outside an open air cafe. As I sat there observing people for a while, I ordered something to eat. As I looked around, I glanced at a local newspaper that was sitting on the table.
Me: “Lord, why am I here? So much has changed, but things seem oddly the same.”
While Jesus was not physically with me, I could hear His voice clearly speak to me in my Holy Spirit.
Jesus: “Wait on Me. This is where it all began. Wait for further instructions. Operate in the Fruits of the Spirit at all times. Remember that one of the Fruits is patience.”
Me: “Okay, but I am not perfect, Lord. You are the only One I know in Scripture who operated in the Fruits of the Spirit 100% of the time.”
Jesus: “Hmm, but did I not also flip tables?”
Me: “Yes, but it made sense for You to do this since You would have been…” He interrupted my thought to draw my attention to something.
Jesus: “Erin, look over there.”
As I turned, I saw a street preacher. However, I soon noticed that this man was preaching a different gospel and telling everyone that miracles were dead today.
Me: “Yes, I see him.”
Jesus: “Now, invite him to sit with you.”
I walked over and invited the man to sit with me. As he looked me over, he started to glare at me in an inappropriate way. However, he agreed to let me talk to him and sat across from me at the table.
Jesus: “Now, Erin, ask him why he says there are no miracles today.”
Me: I looked at the street preacher. “Why are you preaching that there are no miracles today?”
Man: “Miracles are dead. Christians are asleep. Those who claim to do miracles are sent from satan to give false hope.”
The Holy Spirit suddenly began to speak through me with power and authority.
Me: “Are you hungry? Then eat.”
Just then, a full meal appeared before him.
Me: “Do you thirst? Then drink.”
Just then, a full glass of water appeared. Shortly after this, the bald man instantly had his hair grow back. He reached up in shock and felt his new hair.
Me: “Your heart has hardened. Turn back to God and He will heal you.”
The man stood up and threw the meal and water at me.
Man: “You witch and liar. The church sleeps. This work is of the devil.”
Me: Jesus continued to work through me. “No, you do not realize the times you are in. Though it seems there are no visible miracles, the time has come for those who slumber to rise up and look to God for peace, strength, healing and grace. By God’s grace and His glory, He will grant miracles to edify His power.”
Man: “No, witch. Be removed.”
I then heard the Lord inform me that this conversation was over.
Jesus: “Erin, I am taking you from here to another place.”
I was immediately taken to a different part of Portland. I recognized this to be the financial district.
Dream 2 description over…
Jesus: “Erin, come up.”
I was immediately up in the orchard and Jesus was just a short distance away. I quickly ran over to Him and hugged Him.
Me: “Lord, I am so glad to see You.”
Jesus: “I am glad to see you too. Did you do as I instructed?”
Me: “You mean write down a list of all of my enemies? Yes, but there are a lot of enemies on this list.”
Jesus: Laughing. “I have many enemies also. Now, do you have the list of your immediate trouble?”
I reached into a pocket in my white linen tunic and I handed Him my list.
Me: “Yes, Lord, here it is.”
Jesus: Nodding. “Yes, we are in tune. You have the same list that I have. Now, I removed some of your enemies a while back, but not all of them. Why do you think I am doing it this way?”
Me: “Well, I am not really sure. Since You always fulfil Your promises, perhaps I am the problem. Only You can save me from our troubles and only You can remove all of these enemies. I must admit that, when I see You operate miraculously in our lives, but sometimes just enough to sustain our faith, I often wonder why I cannot just remove our enemies by Your authority right now?”
Jesus: “Erin, there are miracles today. For those who remain in Me as fruit to the Branch, I do miraculous things. Your life is a miracle from beginning to end. Who can dispute this? Now, you are wondering why you cannot declare a thing and immediately have it happen when using My authority by name.
“There is a reason. In the last seventy years of time, the world has been stirred and the church is waking from its slumber. A few have been called to operate in the gifts of miracles. They operate in this gift for a while, but it then subsides for a while. Or I will use them for an event, but then it appears that I have left.
“These are all small alerts meant to rouse those sleeping for My return. However, now a time is coming and is at hand that My glory will be on full display and splendor. Despite this, some will say it is actually the work of the devil.
“They will say this even though it is written that I will pour out My Spirit, your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men shall see visions and your old men shall dream dreams. Erin, you are young and old, but My Spirit is also upon you.”
Me: “I do not understand.”
Jesus: “Erin, soon I will display wondrous things and there will be a time of great splendor from Heaven. However, there will also be a great falling away. This time has come.”
Me: “Has it already been happening?”
Jesus: Smiling. “Erin, you have only to look back one bridge and then compare the acceleration of evil from the bridge before. It cannot be disputed. Now, in your dream, you saw deception and ‘pay for play’ is common now. However, what I have to offer is free, yet no one purchases it.
“You were given five stones to fight this giant, but only one stone was needed. When My Spirit was operating through you, people were repulsed by your words and offended by the miracles.”
Me: “Yes, but why?”
Jesus: “When people are told a miracle is from God, they will become offended as they will have also seen false miracles that people did not say were from God. Some will become hardened against God by this.
“However, these false miracles will be easy to spot as there is no substance behind them and no deeper parable or insight will be given to the witnesses from them. Instead, there will be nothing but chains keeping them stagnant to their personal beliefs.
“In contrast, miracles from Heaven are always given to glorify Me and My Father and never to glorify the person performing the miracles. If I made you a witness, then you would only observe and see these.
“Instead, you will be a worker and an operating vessel in which people will only see the power of God through you. This will edify Me as it wakes people up to the urgency of the times. During this time, you are to consciously operate in the Fruits of the Spirit.
“When you do not, I will nudge you back. You will then immediately recognize My voice and make corrections. Right now, you are to wait for My leading in all that you do.”
Me: “Lord, this is very serious.”
Jesus: “Erin, you asked to be used and now I will use you. Are you ready?”
He reached over and gently hugged me.
