If you have not read the dream, I highly suggest you do only to be more familiar with what I’m talking about. Dream Details
This dream had a lot of symbols and messages for followers of Christ. The post is longer than most of mine because there is so much. Please take your time and listen.
Main Symbols- Bride & Groom (Union), Sleeping, Awake, Thieves, Control, Branches, Warning
The automatic car represents a lack of a driver/lack of control in our life
It crashed. How many of us are not holding the wheel and letting other priorities and people tell us what to think or believe?
- How often are we distracted by our media or our routines?
- How many of us are struggling feeling like we are distanced from the Lord because we are not actively and daily praying, worshipping, reading scripture, and being around other believers?
Absolutely, the Lord needs to be first and in control, but we must be active in making choices to draw close to Him. Otherwise, we will be swept away because others, media, and situations will influence us and have control over us.
Thieves We Allow
How often are you allowing yourself to be exposed? Out in the open. Defenseless. Not prepared. Not aware of the enemy.
(NIV) John 10:10, “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.”
Our time, life, influence, and growth are so short.
- OUR TIME WILL BE STOLEN FROM US (media, jobs, family, friends, pleasure, etc)
- OUR GROWTH IN THE LORD WILL BE KILLED!
- OUR RELATIONSHIP WITH CHRIST WILL BE DESTROYED!
If we are not focused on Him.
Branches Falling Away- Fallen Believers
Some people may struggle with this, but it is possible for people who once knew the truth to walk away. Solomon is one of the best examples I think I can give. People can grow, make an impact, and give glory to the Lord, but then later fall in their flesh. Christ already told us this when He described the seeds.
Some people hear the truth but get misled by the wicked one. Those who receive Christ immediately, but having no root in Him fall away because they cannot endure, and when trials happen they stumble. Those who hear the truth, but then are choked by the world’s deception. (Matthew 13:03-08 & 18-23)
Do not put your security in grace and salvation alone, but put it actively in Christ Himself, developing an intimacy with the Lord that changes you from the inside out! A relationship that as you grow closer you give up the flesh and the world. This is what we all need to strive for.
DO YOU REALLY KNOW HIM?
- Are you reading scripture to stay close to the Lord and to use it actively as a weapon against darkness?
- How much daily time are you giving to the Lord, you and Him only?
(NIV) 1 Thessalonians 5:04, “But you, brothers and sisters, are not in darkness so that this day should surprise you like a thief.” (Day of the Lord)
Babylon & Connection To Thebes
In my dream, the woman (which I immediately connected her to Babylon) when she was selling the insurance stated how she learned a lot about herself when she was in “Thieves.” This made me curious if perhaps the actual location reference could possibly be, “Thebes.”
After having this dream, I spent a lot of time reading scripture. I happened to randomly go over Nahum chapters 2 and 3. It was ch. 3 which made something stand out.
(NKJ) Nahum 3:08, “Are you better than No Amon that was situated by the River, that had the waters around her, whose rampart was the sea, whose wall was the sea?” (Referring to Ninevah’s Coming Destruction)
After Jonah, years later, Ninevah went back to their ways, and the Lord was going to have them destroyed, which is the warning we see them receive here.
Ninevah is compared to a place called No Amon…which, upon further research…is THEBES!
No Amon’s strength is described as “boundless” in verses nine and ten. Her allies were numerous…yet she was carried away and went into captivity. And it’s true, Thebes was once thought to be indestructible. Sounds oddly familiar to a particular city at the end of days.
Babylon, if you are not familiar is described as a city that “can not be destroyed” but at the end of days God will destroy it.
There are a lot of references for the bride to be awake, to know/be aware of something.
- When the car got into the wreck, there was an immediate awareness of being told of what would happen.
- The woman selling “insurance”. We could be giving our enemy an advantage in our life based on what we share and expose ourselves to.
- Awareness of sleeping outside and not defending the house. This is mentioned a few times in scripture about being prepared (in our heart, storing the right things) and not to be overtaken like a thief in the night.
- Noticing the storms outside the window.
- Knowing scripture of what will happen, being able to identify when it happens in real life, and again, not be overtaken with it or surprised. (Hearing the voice about the “Messiah”)
Anti Christ As Messiah, Signs-
The “messiah” spoken of at the end of the dream was not Christ.
Yes, he was listed as being seen in the clouds. Yes, he was referred to as, “Yahweh”.
However, what the dream was pointing to was not a time of peace, but impending darkness. Scripture says during this time, the days will be shortened for the elect, and there will rise up false prophets and antichrists.
(NIV) Mark 13:21-22, “At that time if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Messiah!’ or, ‘Look, there he is!’ do not believe it. For false messiahs and false prophets will appear and perform signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect. So be on your guard; I have told you everything ahead of time.”
Christ mentions it is only after the days of tribulation (Mark 13:24) when darkness falls upon the world, and after the heavenly powers are shaken, that He emerges from the clouds in glory.
Global Awareness & Deception –
The most disturbing part of the dream upon awakening was the global proclamation about the “messiah”. I believe this is a reference to being worldwide because the sound of the dial-up tone represented the Internet, and the Internet is referred to as “the worldwide web.” As shared before, scripture indicates many will be proclaiming these things. This indicates there is nowhere a believer could be without the world being affected or influenced by these false prophets and antichrists.
The dream ended with me being encouraged, that despite all of these things, this was a time to minister to my husband. This was a time to rejoice in the Lord because as scary and as dark are these events, His wrath is coming to the wicked. His glory is swiftly at hand.
Those who are never warned of the warning will not know what a warning looks like or sounds like.
Of course, those completely consumed by their flesh will be given up to deception and delusion. However, 2 Thessalonians 2:10-11 does state those who are given into the delusion it is because they refused the truth, meaning THEY WERE GIVEN THE OPPORTUNITY TO KNOW CHRIST.
We must break past being uncomfortable, rejected, unheard, or afraid.
We must be willing to study the end of time scriptures because there are more than ten books of the Bible that talk about it. Whatever message God gives us, like Jonah, we need to heed and listen to.
I hope and pray God used something in this post to speak to you. ❤
