Dream 359 – We are ‘special ops’ viewing events from His horse
Received Saturday, September 28, 2019
Thank You for another day here! Thank You for all that You do. Thank You for my family and for my friends from all over the world. I am truly blessed. Father, I am also scared right now. I did some things on faith and by Your direction, so I know You called me to do so. However, right now, it is way beyond my comfort level.
I know that, every time You have done this to me historically, it is because You are lining my words and actions with my beliefs that I preach to others. In some ways, I feel as if this was the first week You poured into my ‘new vessel’ to test the sustainability of what You created. It seemed You did this in order to see if there were any weak spots in my structure.
I pray that I passed. I felt I did everything You had instructed me to. However, it was a personal paradigm shift. It seems like, every time I become comfortable with one direction or place and settle in, You take me to a greater and more difficult and demanding situation. I believe I had a dream about this last night…
Sub-dream 1 “The almost overflowing fountain” begins…
I was looking at a large fountain with a bowl underneath it. The bowl was full of round rocks and had plenty of space for the water to pass through. The bowl was taking in the water like a type of spillway. While the fountain appeared to be functioning perfectly, at least from a distance, I decided to keep a watchful eye on it. This is because, if it overflowed, it could become damaging to the things resting outside of the bowl.
At one point, I walked up to it right before it was about to release the overflow over the spillway. Just as I was about to do something about it, people would ask questions in an effort to distract me. I could tell it was the enemy sending these distractions, so I went forward and drained the excess water before any damage occurred. I then refilled the fountain and reset the pump to make sure that the perfect amount of water flowed.
Sub-dream 1 over…
Father, I believe that this dream was straight from You. I feel like I am this fountain. I am afraid of personal malfunctions. I am exhausted. I am busy, which keeps my mind off of the ‘what-ifs’, but I am still scared. I was hoping that You would be practicing with my new vessel by now, not this old one with all of its issues. Father, as a reminder, this vessel of mine is cracked, patched, duct-taped, grafted, sun damaged and spotted.
It is also failing in many areas, so I am praying for a soon renewal. I am praying for, not only the renewal of my mind, but also a new physical vessel, either healed or new and improved. I have so many dreams and desires. While I sleep, You turn me into a God-appointed super heroine who shuts down the lies of the enemy and gives hope to the hopeless, all in Your Name.
In my dreams, I can call mountains into the heart of the sea. I can dodge fire. I can scale a wall and leap tall objects, all in Your Name. I can heal the sick and strengthen the weak. I can perform mighty deeds of all sorts. However, when I wake up, I am still old and weak. I am here in pain and old. While my body comes out of these awesome dreams thinking it is now young and powerful, I soon feel as if I was hit by a train.
So, Father, will You not please consider me? Please let the woman I am in the dreams You have given me soon be ‘that woman’, the woman You have trained and instructed while I sleep. In my dreams, I have no worldly cares. I do not worry about provision or where I will sleep or eat. You provide everything. So, Father, why then do I worry about these things upon awakening?
In my dreams, I am no longer wearing prison clothes. I dine with the King of all Creation. I wear beautiful gowns and I am like royalty. I then wake up and I am again in the snares of debt from the things of this world common to man. While You own the banks, the banks control Your people, all with interest…hmm, compound interests.
It is common for a man to hold a mortgage, an auto loan, have medical bills and pay taxes. However, in my dreams of Heaven, You, Father, have cut out the oppressors and released us from debt. So, Father, I ask this of You…please…on Earth as it is in Heaven…set us free! Your promises rein true. I already know they do, so please!
Could You please also grant my husband this job? However, could You also make it so it creates freedom from worry and a release from oppression? We have had a year of structured rest, but now, Father, please set us free from trouble. Fall is here. If my husband gets this position, our family will then be separated for several months three thousand miles apart.
The winters here are difficult, so I ask You to make this one a mild one. I also ask for strength and provision from my husband’s hopefully soon new position and that there be enough to sustain two homes and another vehicle. Sigh…I feel in my heart that You are about to do something amazing, so we will cling to this. I know one thing for sure and that is that Your promises are true. While always true, I just pray that they are for now!
Jesus: “Erin, come up.”
I was under the archway with beautiful, flowering vines. The leaves had turned to oranges, purples, reds and yellows. The fragrance was beautiful. There was even the slight smell of wood smoke in the air. The sky was a vibrant blue and the temperature, as always, was perfect. I looked over at the branches in the vineyard and the grapes hung from them like jewels.
The grapes were huge and obviously ripe and ready. While I could see distant vineyards that were still normal green vines, this vineyard reflected grapes on vines as in fall. Hmm, this was fascinating. There are different seasons in Heaven depending on the field or harvest here. However, I have not noticed this before anywhere else in Heaven but in God’s Garden. I decided to walk towards the aspen grove to take it all in.
The trees were stunning, with stark white trunks and golden shimmering leaves which made a humming tune in the breeze like delicate wind chimes. Suddenly, and in the distance, I saw Jesus holding the reins of His horse and holding His arms out towards me. He picked me up as I ran into His arms. After hugging me, and to my surprise and delight, He placed me on His horse. He held the reins as He walked beside me.
Jesus: “Erin, I know your worries, your deep longings and your dreams. I put the latter two on your heart, but your worries…well, I am not the orchestrator of these. Now, why do you worry?”
Me: “Well, Lord, You know better than anyone. It is part of the human condition. If we are to be like children, then what child doesn’t cry when they are uncertain if their parents know they are awake in their crib? What child doesn’t cry when they cannot visibly see them? It is a child’s desire to be where their parents are. Lord, I look to You and pray. When I don’t know if You hear me, I cry out to You. You then answer, but not always on my timing.”
Jesus: Nodding His head attentively as I spoke and then laughing. “Oh Erin, I am very pleased with the wise case you just made. However, there is still a problem with this. I am always there with you. Even though I answer when you ask, you still cry. I come to you, Erin. So, where are you now?”
Me: Pouting. “In Heaven…sitting on Your horse.”
Jesus: Laughing. “Yes, but Who is holding the reins to My ‘unruly animal’?”
Just then, His horse stopped to make some ‘menacing’ neighing sounds. He then scraped his front paw and shook his head. He was obviously pretending to soon ‘break free’. Before he ‘bolted’, Jesus exaggeratedly started to reassure His horse.
Jesus: Still laughing. “Okay, okay…calm down. This is for illustrative purposes only.”
Me: Reaching down to pat the neck of His horse. “It’s okay. I understand. However, you are not the ‘unruly animal’, I am!”
Jesus: Laughing together. “Okay, Erin, that was funny. However, do you understand why I use this?” He held up the reins again. “Erin, I don’t need them for My horse as there is really no need for reins here in Heaven.”
Me: “Forgive me, Lord. You have had so many lessons for me with You holding the reins, you would think that, after ten or more of these, I would have finally figured all of this out.”
Jesus: “Oh Erin, you are not being tested on this. It is natural to step out in faith and then look around for Me to be there. It is when you focus on your condition, your placement or your ‘self’ in the midst of these situations, rather than focusing your eyes on Me, that troubles can come. Do you remember about Peter walking on water in the storm? Well, he did everything right…at first.
“Peter’s heart felt called to have him do this, but his head soon was telling him that this was impossible. When he took his focus off of Me and realized ‘whoa, I am standing on water’, he then became self-focused. While he stepped out of the boat with great zeal and with his faith believing in the miracles of doing what I could do, his self-awareness soon brought him into the dark waters. He was then in need of a rescue.”
Me: Crying. “Oh no, Lord, please don’t take me backwards. I had hoped I would have figured out Who is in control by now. I have died to myself. I am reduced down. I have no lofty plans anymore, just hopes and dreams.”
Jesus: “Oh Erin, your heart is good. I have refined you in the fires of affliction and found your heart to be good. I have prepared your vessel and tested it. I found it good. I have poured into you for seven years. During this time, you have grown and increased your storehouses up here in Heaven. Your treasures are here, but you also have earthly treasures waiting for you there.
“Your earthly heart has been overflowing this last week. I have shown you what is good and I have increased your tent. I have even given you a spillway. Erin, I love you. The desires of your heart are good. I delight in what you delight in. As I have increased your commitments, will I not also give you the abilities to meet and exceed them? Your requests are good. I am here to let you know that I have granted your requests. These have been placed on your heart by Me.
“You have stepped out of the boat into the storm. Your eyes are locked upon Me. Do not worry about the impending storm, the threat of high waves or the dark waters. Instead, fix your eyes on Me and these will all come to nothing. Since I hold these reins, I also control the magnitude of the storms. I control the rise of the tides, the depths of the sea and the clarity of the waters. Now, Erin, please understand…if I am with you, who can stand against you?”
Me: “Well, no one…yet many still try.”
Jesus: Smiling. “Well, answering this will have to wait for a different lesson…one on truth. However, for these purposes, please remember that nothing is greater than He Who holds these reins, understand?”
Jesus: “When you see the increase in evil in the ways in which you are seeing it now, you must instead view this like a group of special ops in an ongoing war. I have called all of you as a special force of saints. Right now, you are observing from hidden locations all over the world. All of you call out to Me in unison: ‘Lord, this is disturbing…are You seeing this?’, ‘Lord, this is wrong…where is the justice?’, ‘Lord, there is so much evil…will You please do something soon?’
Me: “Yes, Lord, that is exactly what we are all doing right now!”
Jesus: “Well, do not worry, Erin, as, when I finally do this, I will do this at the perfect time. Until then…’Prepare! Prepare! Prepare ye the way!’”
Me: “What do You mean, Lord?”
Jesus: “Well, Erin, let’s just say, for better or for worse, all of your dreams will soon be answered and all of this will then come to pass. Until this finally happens, the enemy continues to taunt Me on this…and not just Me, but all Heavenly Hosts. However, soon, very soon, there will be a storm unleashed upon the lands which will scatter the wicked and bring comfort to the broken.
“Now, take heart, Erin, for I have heard all of your cries. I have not forgotten any of you. I am with all of you. You will soon be in awe at what I am about to do. Now, rejoice, Erin, for I have not forgotten you. I love you, now rejoice!” He smiled as He gently squeezed my hand.
