Had a dream last night that grieved my heart and I woke up asking the Holy Spirit what it meant. He showed me that my sister in the dream are brothers and sisters in the house and body of Christ. The Church family.
In the dream, it was raining and very cold outside. I was looking for some long pants and a shirt to wear. There were some random mismatched gloves and things in there that were not usable and I was asking my sister if she had any clothing she could lend me to wear. It was only there and then, that she finally let me into her secret room.
We were in a small house, and we both had small rooms. However, there was a secret room in her room that led to an entire walk in wardrobe of clothing and boxes and boxes of shoes and all sorts of luxurious items that she had kept secret from the rest of her family.
It was ridiculously large like a departmental store , with slides for her kids and even staff working in there organizing the clothing and materials that she had.
I was in disbelief at the amount of material goods and resources that she had because all along, I had so little but I was giving it to her thinking that she had little, but she had so much that she had kept away for herself and was not sharing when i was her sister and just living next room to her and she did not share anything with me.
At the end of the dream, I was crying and I said why have you kept everything for yourself ? I was so sad…. and I told her I am leaving this house and going to take the bus….. I am going on the road. I wasn’t sure in my dream to where.
When I woke up and prayed about it, I felt the Lord tell me that this is what is going on in his house today. He has blessed some of his children abundantly but they have kept it away and stored it away. They have SOOO much that it is excessive like enough to fill a shopping mall, and yet when they see a brother or sister in need they have been closing their eyes to their nakedness and not opening up their secret doors to all this provision.
However, in the dream my sister did open the door to me in the end and I feel like the lord saying to tell the church this dream. This is also for myself, and for all of us who have been given much.
Luke 12:48 New International Version (NIV)
48 But the one who does not know and does things deserving punishment will be beaten with few blows. From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked.
In the dream i said In was moving on going to another church because I had nothing here like i was hurt that all this time there was this whole new other place in the house and all these resources were hidden from me.
I was very sad and hurt and felt like I had given so much but everything was not shared back with me and hidden from me. I decided i was going to move on with my life and move out…. and I sense the Holy Spirit saying that he is grieved at how much he has given and blessed some parts of the body of christ but they have hoarded and instead accumulated treasures on earth instead of seeing their brothers and sisters in need and sharing everything they had.
They have been hoarding and hiding and and building up wealth for themselves behind a secret door and. Not sharing with their brothers and sisters in christ. Rows and rows of treasures of this world like shopping centre and it grieves my heart because people keep giving to them thinking they are in need with nothing left themselves, when they have actually stored for themselves so much goods and earthly treasures while their sister has nothing to wear out into the cold rain from giving everything she had.
And in the dream there was a bus coming. And i said I am leaving this house to the bus…. I wasn’t sure where I was going in the dream but I was going out of this house that had hoarded so much and kept in secret for themselves.
The “UNCLES” of the church family or the “ELDERS” in the house need to repent.
The church has been sexually immoral with the ways of the world and preying and perving on the sheep and the youth and young girls and they do not know they are being prostituted and made use of in their very own home because they thought that they are at home with parents and family and they should be protected and safe and yet they are not being protected.
“Shout it aloud, do not hold back. Raise your voice like a trumpet. Declare to my people their rebellion and to the descendants of Jacob their sins. For day after day they seek me out; they seem eager to know my ways, as if they were a nation that does what is right and has not forsaken the commands of its God.
They ask me for just decisions and seem eager for God to come near them. ‘Why have we fasted,’ they say, ‘and you have not seen it? Why have we humbled ourselves, and you have not noticed?’
“Yet on the day of your fasting, you do as you please and exploit all your workers.
Your fasting ends in quarreling and strife, and in striking each other with wicked fists. You cannot fast as you do today and expect your voice to be heard on high. Is this the kind of fast I have chosen, only a day for people to humble themselves? Is it only for bowing one’s head like a reed and for lying in sackcloth and ashes? Is that what you call a fast, a day acceptable to the Lord ?
Isaiah 58:1-5 NIV
True fasting is Repentance and obedience to loose the chains of injustice to set the oppressed free! To so what God wants us to do not just say we are sorry and continue being disobedient and sin.
“Is not this the kind of fasting I have chosen: to loose the chains of injustice and untie the cords of the yoke, to set the oppressed free and break every yoke?
Is it not to share your food with the hungry and to provide the poor wanderer with shelter—
when you see the naked, to clothe them, and not to turn away from your own flesh and blood?
Then your light will break forth like the dawn, and your healing will quickly appear; then your righteousness will go before you, and the glory of the Lord will be your rear guard.
Then you will call, and the Lord will answer;
you will cry for help, and he will say: Here am I.
“If you do away with the yoke of oppression, with the pointing finger and malicious talk, and if you spend yourselves in behalf of the hungry and satisfy the needs of the oppressed, then your light will rise in the darkness, and your night will become like the noonday.
The Lord will guide you always; he will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land and will strengthen your frame.
You will be like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail. Your people will rebuild the ancient ruins and will raise up the age-old foundations; you will be called Repairer of Broken Walls, Restorer of Streets with Dwellings.
Isaiah 58:6-12 NIV
Then Jesus said to his host, “When you give a luncheon or dinner, do not invite your friends, your brothers or sisters, your relatives, or your rich neighbors; if you do, they may invite you back and so you will be repaid. But when you give a banquet, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, the blind, and you will be blessed. Although they cannot repay you, you will be repaid at the resurrection of the righteous.”
Luke 14:12-14 NIV
