Dream 366 – Jesus and the Raising of the Dead
Received Thursday, October 31, 2019 (Halloween…Hallomean)
Thank You for another day! Thank You for all that we have. Thank You for my family and friends. I feel so blessed. I feel so blessed by my family here at the Nest. It is pouring rain and cold today. This next week, we are to receive our first snowfall. My health has not been so great lately. I go through spurts. My body is rebelling against my mindset. When I need to do something, my body wants to go another direction.
In my mind, I have so much I want to do, and really need to do, but my pain dictates my course and orchestrates my ability (but really, inability) to reach my goals. Lately, I have had uncharacteristic electric charges in my arms, neck and heart. I then become really tired immediately after. However, I am still thankful for each new day.
My husband inquired about his new job prospect yesterday. The company rep then responded with news that he is still being considered, but also that the company is still interviewing others. I pray that my husband gets this job. The feeling of sadness in our home has been hard at times. If it was only my husband and me, we could manage. However, our home is filled with birds wanting to soon build their own nests.
My older daughter turned eighteen yesterday. It is bittersweet for me. She grew up so fast and so quickly. I am not sure where time went. Yesterday, on October 30th, at midnight, marked my complete freedom from my main enemy’s stronghold over me, but really all of us. I was freed yesterday. I am free and so are my children. I no longer need to worry about courts because of this man and my children.
According to the courts, my daughter turning eighteen has now set us free…prayerfully, that is. We went through years of suffering for no reason other than the enemy wanting to punish me for reporting to the police what he had done to the children and me. In the end, the enemy received the victory of his freedom without financial obligation, no child support at all. I had to negotiate away support to keep my children.
If he had to pay any child support, I would worry for our lives. Now, on the 30th day of the tenth month, in the 14th year, we are free. The fight began when my daughter was only four years old. Materially, it cost me everything. It cost me even more in lost time to enjoy my children. Even worse, it caused my health to deteriorate. I can never get this back, Lord, unless You restore what the enemy has stolen from us.
I could never post on social media. I could never take trips or vacations. I was a prisoner. Everything I did with my children was under scrutiny and anything I did was twisted and used against me. It was a nightmare. Father, all this time, You have kept us safe and close. Thank You. Now we are here. What would You do with us, Lord?
Jesus: “Erin, come up.”
I was up in a place that I had never been before. I was next to the side of a massive stone mountain. There were chiseled stone looking rooms with massive stone doors or seals. These were ancient tombs. It was early morning. There was a path that led up to a landing area in front of several of these tombs.
Me: “Lord, is this some Halloween-type dream I am in? What is happening?”
As I was looking, the sun suddenly highlighted one of the tombs. I ran down the path towards this tomb, then up on the landing, to look for Jesus. When I peeked inside the stone room, all that was there was a stone slab.
Me: “Lord, where are You? Lord?”
Jesus was suddenly right in front of me. He was smiling as He showed me that He was still holding the reins to His horse.
Jesus: “Erin, I am here. Do not worry. I rose two thousand years ago. You will not find Me here.”
I ran to Him with excitement and jumped into His arms. He hugged me.
Me: “I am so glad that You are here, Lord. I love You so much. Why are You here by these tombs?”
Jesus: “Erin, these tombs are all empty. Now, come with Me.”
He reached for my hand and we walked past the stone tomb area. After walking a short while, we soon came up to a field with large rectangular holes in them.
Jesus: “We have now come from the burial place of the wealthy to being at the burial place of the poor.”
Me: “Yes, Lord, but where are all of the dead?”
Jesus: “They have risen. They are busy.”
Me: “Busy doing what?” I started to laugh. “Do You mean, like, ‘Zombie-stuff’?”
Jesus: Laughing. “No, Erin, they are young again and, yes, still quite frightening (to those who do not believe).”
Me: Crying. “But when will we be raised up, Lord? What about us?”
Jesus: “Oh Erin, do not worry. These empty tombs were for those who I raised up, those who were sleeping.”
Me: “Are they here or in Heaven?”
Jesus: “There are no graves in Heaven.”
Me: “Yes, but where are the people?”
Jesus: “They are waking up…some stretching, some in shock.”
Me: “But, Lord, this looks ancient. Was this just after Your resurrection?”
Jesus: “Erin, do you believe that I can raise the dead?”
Me: “Of course, Lord, as there is nothing You cannot do. Really, this is the miracle of all miracles…rising from the dead. Why have You shown me this? I believe, Lord, I believe!”
Jesus: “I am showing you this because beautiful are the feet who bring Good News. Erin, do you remember the dream you had years ago…when you came out of rooms carved in hills…you awoke from your slumber and came out after the trouble?”
Me: “Yes, Lord, I remember this dream very vividly. Was that a tomb?”
Jesus: “Erin, you will soon learn to do as I have done, but even more, understand?”
Me: “Lord, I can’t even heal just one of my many ailments. How could I…?”
Jesus: “Hmm, there are a lot of ‘I’s here. Remember, it is not you, but Me working through you. Now, you have been very discouraged and worried for your family. Understand that it is My Father Who controls time and season. However, I have been given these…” He raised up His reins. “…so do not worry, understand?
“Be less interested in the miracle and more in the task and the ultimate goal. Show them My glory. Tell them the Great News. Do not worry as I have not forsaken you nor will I. Now, I have placed a Word on your heart.”
Me: “Yes, Lord. It is Isaiah 26.”
Jesus: “Then study this. Erin, these tombs are open. There are no dead here. Only My truth remains. The remnant, or evidence, of what was once buried is now gone. Yes, Erin, only My truth remains. Now, be encouraged that there is no death here…” He smiled as He lifted up His reins. “…and that I hold these…and even more. I love you.” He reached for my hand. “Now, come, as I have even more for you.”
While all of Isaiah 26 should be studied as directed by the Lord, the following are verses 19 to 21. These verses seemed to be particularly applicable to what the Lord had just spoken to me about in this dream:
“Your dead shall live; their bodies shall rise. You who dwell in the dust, awake and sing for joy! For your dew is a dew of light, and the earth will give birth to the dead. Come, my people, enter your chambers, and shut your doors behind you; hide yourselves for a little while until the fury has passed by. For behold, the Lord is coming out from his place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity, and the earth will disclose the blood shed on it, and will no more cover its slain.”
