A SPIRITUAL AWAKENING
Some time ago I had an unusual dream. In the dream I received a vision of a church that was packed out with people. This was a rather peculiar vision because everything and everyone was in black and white as if I was looking at a black and white television set from the fifties. There was one man standing in the middle of the congregation with his hands raised worshipping Jesus.
This man was the only person in the dream (vision) that was in color. He had red hair and was wearing a blue and white plaid shirt. I felt that this vision represented the church being spiritually dead, and this man represented someone who was filled with the Holy Spirit and fire. Now as I look back in hindsight, I see that the colors on this man also represented the USA
A couple of nights later, I had a similar dream. In the dream, again, I was in a church that was filled with people. As I looked around I noticed that everyone in the room was falling asleep one by one. Suddenly there was total silence. I looked up, and to my amazement the pastor who was speaking also fell asleep.
I was puzzled and didn't know what to make of this. When I woke up I asked the Lord for the interpretation. This is what He showed me. The church represented the body of Christ who have been spiritually falling sleep. The pastors and leaders are getting tired and are lulling the people to sleep because they no longer have that zeal and divine connection that they once had.
But the Lord is about to revive those who are willing to press in. Those who are hungry for a move of God, who will stir themselves up in their most holy faith. He's about to revive the leadership in the body of Christ and restore that intimacy that they once had with Him. New wine will be poured out, and revelation will begin to flow. The eyes of their understanding will be opened once again.
The Lord says I Am calling My body to arise and come out of their comfort zone. Wake up to righteousness. Wake up to holiness. Throw off the grave clothes. I desire to move among you in a mighty way. There are many changes coming in the earth and it is time for the body of Christ to awaken and walk in the calling and authority that I have given to them. Come out of your slumber and allow Me to move in your lives and ministries.
There are some who, like Ichabod, have felt that the glory has departed. I want to restore those with fresh oil once again. Just as the precious oil, upon the head of Aaron, that ran down his beard, to the edge of his garments, I will release My oil over My body. Allow Me to anoint that which has become dry and brittle with fresh oil. Allow Me to breathe upon and resuscitate those things that have died says the Lord
Arise, shine; For your light has come! And the glory of the LORD is risen upon you. For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and deep darkness the people; But the LORD will arise over you,And His glory will be seen upon you.
Ephesians 5: 14-16
Therefore He says: "Awake, you who sleep, Arise from the dead, And Christ will give you light." See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil.
And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart.
