“Yet…..Another Dream”

Dreams - Joel 2-28Joel 2:28 “And it shall come to pass afterward that I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh; your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions.

Yes, yet another dream as the scriptures proclaim about old men: I was in a rugged mountainous forest and I could see in the distance at the top of a small mountain, yet much higher than a very high hill but probably accessible in a day or twos journey. As I climbed up this forested mountain, I could see at the top, stone figures of what looked like angels. When I arrived, I grabbed hold of the stone work and slid my hand over the top of one of the figures expecting to find a treasure. I was fairly careful as I did not want to topple the figure over or be surprised by some hidden venomous creature. There was nothing there except some sand and dust. As I moved around the figures, there were two or three stone angels, I came upon an area of lush beauty with people in bright colors dancing and enjoying the day as there was a banquet taking place with festivities. I remember seeing one girl who had just come out of a spring of water and being exhilarated at the fact that she had just turned eight years old. Everyone was so very happy for her and the party continued. I was, as usual with a camera and had just been told that this was a very special day, the name of which I did not really catch, but important none the less as there would be signs in the heavens with colored clouds and shapes. As I stood on a small hillside there, through the trees, I could see the clouds being whipped around into shapes of people in bright colors. I started taking pictures and people kept getting in the way of a clear view. I kept moving around but by the time I was in a good position, the show was over. Then I noticed that there were many flowers in the area the variety of which I had never seen before but extremely beautiful, lots of white and yellows. I remember thinking I hope I do not run out of film but then realized I had a digital camera of the larger format, like a Rolleiflex or Hasselblad.

I had awakened a couple of times during this lengthy dream but the dream always continued as I fell back asleep until it was time to rise in the morning. I felt that I must write this dream down for whatever it may mean. If anyone has any kind of interpretation for me, I should be blessed to hear.

“Impressions”

Impressions

Isaiah 5:20-21 Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; who put darkness for light, and light for darkness; who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!

Jeremiah 6:16 Thus says the Lord: “Stand in the ways and see, and ask for the old paths, where the good way is, and walk in it; then you will find rest for your souls. 

It seems to me that the world is still eating from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil and in fact desires the fruit of evil more than it does the fruit of good. The trouble is we have eaten from the wrong tree, end of story. If it had not been so, we would still be in that Garden of God. This God of Creation is still admonishing that we should come to Him and find rest.

There is yet another tree in the Garden of God, and there are Cherubim with flaming swords guarding the way and those who have been allowed to eat of that other tree, these days are finding another sword coming against them. The problem we find is that this other fruit causes those who partake to become light in a very dark world and the darkness hates the light as it shows up the evil for what it is and at all costs must be destroyed. Thus, if you have eaten from that other tree, the tree of life, you will be sought out to be destroyed. Evil hates Righteousness. Lies hate Truth. Darkness hates Light. Those who have eaten from the tree of Life, can see where they are going unlike the evil generation who cannot see the abyss that they are about to fall into because it is so very dark. We must pray for the eyes to be opened and turn on enough light for at least some to see.

This God of Creation has called me to be a scribe with a camera to say what He shows me and I have been attempting to do that for the past 54 years. I pray blessings on your day and life.

“Misguided ?”

Orthodox at the Western wallIsaiah 29:13 Wherefore the Lord said, Forasmuch as this people draw near me with their mouth, and with their lips do honour me, but have removed their heart far from me, and their fear toward me is taught by the precept of men:

I have read lately a few things that the Orthodox Rabbis have written and said, and find so much that is written and said, to be so far from the truth of what the God of Creation has written in His book, the Bible. I will make just one illustration in this as I see the Orthodox throwing stones at passing cars because they are driving on Shabbat. The hatred I see toward those who do not follow the law as they do, is as bad as the law breaker. I was led to believe that this God of Creation was a God of Love. Love does not throw stones at your neighbor, love reasons with your neighbor. Micah 6:8 He has shown you, O man, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justly, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God?

Please understand, I live in Israel, I live amongst a people who have given to the world such marvelous technology and care for the downtrodden. Israel seems to be the first responders to any calamity in the world where they can help save lives, even the lives of their enemies. But, these God following Orthodox are a different breed as I see it. The heart seems to be made of stone and clay tablets without the life blood of this awesome loving and caring God. I must continue to pray for the day when the God who has blinded them will finally open their eyes and see what they have been missing, what a day that will be.
