Dream 375 – Thousands of Lambs grow to be Sheep
Received Thursday, December 26, 2019 (Kislev 28)
I am thankful for You! I love You. We love You so very much. Thank You for sending Jesus to save the world. During the last two nights, I have had disturbing dreams involving enemies from my past and present. I don’t really talk about them much with my family as I don’t want to have to think about these people. That being said, since You had me review this in my dreams, so I will pray for them…
Sub-dream 1 “An Enemy’s Tiny House” description begins…
I was standing in an auditorium not that far from a particular woman who had caused me irrevocable harm to my reputation, my business and my heart. She deceived me during a time that I was very vulnerable. She soon noticed me and came up to talk with me. I pretended to not be hurt by our past…
Woman: “I would love to have you come to my house and see it.”
I agreed to come with her and we started to walk there together. After a short while, we came upon her house. She was living in a tiny home. It seemed to be about the same size as my home when I was 4 or 5 years old on Bell Street, a home with just under 600 square feet. After entering her house, she told me to wait for her in the kitchen area. While waiting, I looked around her kitchen and soon noticed something odd.
There on her Formica counter were about twenty cards on stands. Each card depicted a different demon. For some reason, some of the stands were plugged in so that the cards could somehow be recharged. This made no sense to me as I don’t believe this even exists. Each ‘demon card’ had a description and, behind each of them, were stacks and stacks of more of these cards. These cards made me feel very unsettled.
I then noticed that, over to my right, there was an old electric stove with grill burners and drip pans. I could hear water dripping onto the stove, so I looked up. There above me was a hole in the ceiling that was allowing this water to drip. Wherever the water dripped down, the stove had become rusty. This told me that this dripping had been occurring for a longtime and had been left unchecked.
After waiting a bit longer for the woman to come back, I just couldn’t take it anymore. I finally left and it felt great! I walked away and didn’t look back even once.
Sub-dream 1 description over…
Father, I had even more of these types of dreams recently and they deeply disturbed me. I have been quite bothered in my Spirit because of them. Please remove this horrible feeling from me so that I can have a joyous time of celebration with my family.
I missed my parents today. I visited their obituaries. It has been eight Christmases since my dreams began, five since my mom died and three since my dad died. Years, months, days and hours begin to strip memories and lessen the initial blow of loss. However, the sting of death is never gone. So much time has passed since the beginning of all of this. My punishments have spanned two decades now.
This is the first time that we have never had a plan in place, such as a back up plan, a nest egg or an emergency protocol. While it may seem like we have nothing, I know that, with You, God, we already have everything. Father, You are our Plan, our First Order, our Hope and our Last Defense. Please consider using us soon. Lord, we have all committed to putting our ‘earthly lives’ on hold in order to be in Your service!
We had a wonderful Christmas. Our children were all home together. Presents were opened. While it was a lean Christmas this year, every one of our children were so very happy. I try each time to study these moments and burn them into my memory bank. I am so thankful for this time together. Thank You for one more day, Father! I must admit that there are days in which I wonder if I will see these promises fulfilled in my lifetime. I wonder if these are for us now or perhaps these are for our children.
I really don’t know for certain. However, what I do know is that I am very thankful. While I don’t know what everything will look like when it all comes together, I just know that it will be perfect and that the world will be in awe. Father, may I ask for a special gift from You? If it would please my Father, could You bless my children, my husband and my Nest Sparrow Friends, along with their families and children?
Could You also please protect them and bless them abundantly more so that I could see this in my lifetime? Please, Father. If this is the time and birth is a result of first conception and growth as a fetus knit by You in the womb, then conceive us, knit us and prepare us for the birth of Your Great Army. Please do this soon, Father. Please don’t forget us. We love You!
Jesus: “Erin, come up.”
This was very odd. I was immediately put into a similar setting as my vision / dream that I had from over fifteen years ago. This was on November 22, 2004 to be precise. This was a painful place, but I knew God had me here again for a purpose. While this dream seemed to start in a place that did not seem like Heaven, it soon Transformed into something that was definitely in Heaven. I will now write this as it unfolded…
I woke up in a dark hotel room. The only light in the room was from the outside street lights and the flashing neon signs. I soon realized that I had already been here before in a previous vision / dream from long ago. This was a hotel room above a movie theatre. It was around 3:30am. I noticed a small suitcase and my clothes draped over a chair. In getting dressed, I put everything on that was laid out on the chair.
After I finished dressing, I decided that I would leave the suitcase behind this time. I realized that taking stuff was pointless as anything I took on this journey would only create extra baggage. I dressed in the darkness, so I was not sure if I was putting on my clothing properly. Finally, I put a coat and scarf on and bounded out of the hotel room. I looked back at the door and flipped the ‘Do Not Disturb’ sign to ‘Service Please’. I laughed as I did this.
I ran down the stairs into the theatre lobby. There was no one there. I ran out a rotating circular door out onto a city scape freshly wet from rain. There were odd noises that surrounded me. I could hear something like steam from underground. I could hear the distant sound of a street cleaner. There were street lights and flashing neon signs from different businesses all around me.
The wet cement sidewalks were like mirrors reflecting the lights. I knew that this was another place I had been before in my vision / dream from long ago. I looked over at a street clock and noticed that it was now 4:00am. This was an old iron clock with a lighted face and Roman numerals. Hmm, you certainly don’t see many of these kinds of clocks anymore.
I walked quickly toward the north end of the city. I am not sure why, but I knew this is where I was to go. Even though I walked with more confidence and less baggage since I had left this behind, I still wondered why I was doing this and why I had taken a hotel room so far away from my destination. After an hour or more of walking briskly, I eventually reached the edge of the city.
The edge of the city was now the beginning of the base of a tall mountain. There was a park ahead of me. I shook my head and cried in joy as right there in front of me was the familiar Heavenly Forestry Bulletin Board. I broke down and fell to my knees. There was also the familiar gate with the ‘outhouse door’.
Me: “Oh Father, the pain…the great, great pain…of being here again is so real. Please forgive me as I can barely breathe. I had great hopes and dreams here before. However, they were instead the beginnings of the worst time in my life. It was Your Will to crush me…and my children too. It was also the beginning of some of my best times as well.
“However, when I gave birth to my first child, this marked a type of captivity period for me with my blacksmith. A yoke was placed upon me and me and my children were then bound. Still, and although I regret many things, I have never regretted even once the gift of my children. They have been a great blessing from You, Father God.”
I walked up to get closer to the bulletin board. I laughed when I saw that it now had the park hours listed. I tried to remember what these hours were in order to write them down, but God kept this from my memory. There was also a warning on the sign to enter at your own risk if you were entering outside of the posted park hours.
I smiled as I turned towards the wood door with the moon and star cut out. Stepping through it was, in a humorous way, similar to walking out of an old outhouse door. It was similar to a place that I lived in for a few years without an indoor bathroom, but clean and perfect. The latch had lifted up and the door opened towards the park.
As I stepped through the door, I noticed that there was a massive herd of lambs there waiting for me. These were baby lambs, not sheep, and were so cute. They were also all over the place though. I became worried for them and decided to look around for their Shepherd.
Me: Calling out. “Hello! Hello! You left Your Lambs here. They need You! Hello!”
I looked around and behind me. The city was now completely removed. There was only a gate. However, resting on that gate was a Shepherd’s Hook. I decided to take the Hook and began to round up all of the little Lambs.
Me: Again, calling out. “Hello! I need help here. I don’t know anything about keeping these Lambs together. I am feeling overwhelmed here!”
Holding the Hooked Staff, I began to walk down the path to look for the Shepherd in charge of this Flock. I looked behind me and noticed that the Lambs were all staying on the path. They were all walking together and following me. I laughed. I continued on for another mile. When I looked back at the little Lambs, they had now become stronger and greater in number.
I turned to face them and saw that their number had now increased into the thousands. I panicked and threw down the Shepherd’s Hook. I ran as fast as I could, but knew from their sound that the Sheep were keeping up. I looked ahead and saw a small cave in the side of an outcropping of rocks. It was as tall as I was and could fit my outstretched arms. However, it was only about ten feet deep, so not a great hiding spot.
Me: “This is scary! They could overtake me at any moment. Lord, where are You?”
I hid in this crevice until I could not hear the sounds of the Sheep anymore. When I then thought that the coast would now be clear, I peeked my head out. To my dismay, I discovered that they were all still there and had laid down to wait for me to come out. Just as I started to panic again, I heard Jesus there laughing.
Jesus: “Erin, come out of that cave. You have all of Heaven laughing right now. This was quite an enjoyable scene.”
Me: “Lord, what is happening?”
Jesus: “Well, come on out first and then we can talk. Yes, that’s right…come out of your cave and off of that cliff.”
I noticed that there were now Sheep above me and around me standing in the crevices. I just shook my head in laughter at the sight of Jesus standing there in the middle of the Flock carrying one of the Sheep. He was still laughing.
Jesus: “Oh Erin, is this not better than what you had expected?”
Me: “I guess so. Well, actually, yes. Yes, Lord, it beats the years of punishment.”
Jesus: Reaching for my hand. “Come with me.”
He took me back to the powdery path with the complex stamped pattern. As there was fog over our head, I could not see that far ahead.
Me: Crying. “Oh no, I knew that this was coming.”
Jesus: Laughing. “Oh Erin, I am the Light of the world, not ‘the ghost of year’s past’. I am your Savior, the Lover of your Soul, the Creator of your path and your Friend. I am also your Lawyer and Kinsman Redeemer. I pleaded your case and shortened your trials, understand? Now, this is good. I am here to give you hope and a future. Let’s see. Oh, I see you have no suitcase with wheels this time. You have left your baggage behind.”
He pretended to search for my suitcase as He laughed. He was trying to cheer me up.
Jesus: Smiling. “Now look at what you are facing here.”
Me: “Sigh…yes, Lord, I see it. That intricate stamped pattern. As I step through it, the fog will stay at the same rate as my climb. This means I will still have no idea where I am going, right?”
Jesus: “Oh Erin, are you so defeated that you believe I would start your time of refinement all over again? Even though there was a lengthy furnace period with many glazes, did I not tell you that your Vessel is finished? I have to tell you that it was touch and go for Me a few times there.”
Me: My mouth was wide open in shock. “What? Really? Lord, really?”
Jesus: “Erin, I am just making light of your seriousness.”
Me: Crying. “Oh Lord, I know that I am acting like a baby right now, but it seems as if nothing is going right. Our hopes are fading. This is why, when You brought me back here to the beginning just now, I thought You were going to start over with me.”
Jesus: “Does this mean that you do not trust Me?”
Me: “No, this is not the case. I trust You, Lord, but I just don’t always trust myself.”
Jesus: “Oh Erin, I love you! I am not your punisher. I am your Deliverer and Friend. I am the Good Shepherd and this is My Flock.”
He turned my attention to the Sheep. There were now several thousand.
Me: “Whoa, where did all of these come from? At first, they were cute little baby Lambs, but now these are strong beautiful Sheep.”
Jesus: “This is because they went on quite a journey with you. Let’s just say that I am glad I arrived when I did as they would have surely not fit into that small cave with you.” He smiled. “Now, let’s look at what we are facing here. We have a very complex path ahead of us. What does your wisdom tell you to do?”
Me: Laughing. “Turn and run!”
Jesus: Smiling. “Now who is being funny? So, what is it that you want to do next?”
Me: I thought for a moment and then giggled. “Okay, really?”
Jesus: “Yes, whatever it is, please go ahead.”
Me: “The pattern on that path has always annoyed me.”
He nodded His agreement with me, giving me permission. I then took a deep breath and blew air out of my mouth towards the path. The air from my mouth then mixed in with a brief powerful wind and completely made the sand and dirt of the path disappear.
Jesus: Laughing and clapping. “Very good, Erin. Now what?”
Me: “I am tired of struggling to climb. I want all of us to be made strong so that we can all run up this mountain with ease.”
Jesus: Smiling. “Okay, Erin, go ahead.”
I could feel Jesus right there with me. I began to run with ease. I leapt without effort and even did some fancy flips. I tried a bunch of things that I could never do before even in my best shape and did them with ease. I paused and looked back at Jesus with joyous laughter. It was only then that I noticed that Jesus’ Sheep were doing the same things as me. Each of them was running, climbing, leaping and flipping with ease.
Me: “Okay, since I am on a role, I must admit to You that I also can’t stand the fog. Lord, I would like to know where I am going and how long it will take to get there.”
Jesus: “You ask a difficult thing. Still…”
He smiled at me as He then lifted the fog. The sunlight made the path much easier to see.
Me: “Wow, that is quite the journey up ahead.”
Jesus: “Yes, it is.”
Me: “Why has this fog always been here?”
Jesus: “I am not convinced you would have yielded to My Will for you if you knew the length of your troubles in advance.”
Me: Crying. “You are right, Lord. What You did was right. Now, why is it that You are lifting this fog now?”
Jesus: “Because you are here to stay with Me.”
Me: “Thank You, Lord. I am still scared though…I mean really scared! However, You are here. I will promise to stay only if You will promise to never leave me.”
Jesus: “This I will do. I am here with you, Erin. Now, are you ready to finish this climb with Me and My Crew here?” He pointed to the Sheep behind us.
Me: “Even with the fog lifted, I still can’t see all the way. However, with You, I can do anything. Apart from You, nothing is possible.”
Jesus: Smiling as He looked into my eyes. “Erin, the time of conforming to the things of this world, this pattern, is now removed and gone.” He refreshed an image in my mind of where I had just blown the sand and dirt, which had included the pattern, off of the path. “This is Holy Ground you are stepping on. Look ahead. Heaven is visible to you. Heaven is evidenced in you. Now, rejoice, Erin, for this is not the old path. This is a new climb and I am with you until the end of the age.”
Me: “I pray that You will be with me much longer than that, Lord.”
Jesus: “Very good, Erin. You have gained wisdom. Yes, I am with you and will always be with you. Now, rejoice. Look ahead at what I have for all of you. Look!”
I looked ahead. All I could see was a bright light!
