I was praying to the Lord yesterday about how effective I have been in reaching people for Jesus Christ. I know it reaches much farther and wider than I realize. But sometimes I just wonder how far. I desire for it to reach much further. So many more might be saved.
I believe I received my answer last night in a dream and more.
I dreamt that I walked into a church and I sat in the front row. I was given a paper that showed that I was supposed to sing in the service, yet I knew nothing about it, neither did I have anything prepared to sing.
I would have sung something but the pastor, who I knew from a previous church that I left, mocked me publicly for not being prepared. He would not allow me to open my mouth.
So I quietly rose and left the building as everyone watched me leave in silence. No one said a word of protest or encouragement.
After I left, I boarded a bus with one other person, a friend who I was working with, and we both rode away from that place. The bus driver was new to his job and was practicing her route. Stopping at several locations but no one else boarded the bus. Throughout almost the whole ride we were the only ones to ride on the bus.
But then as we were nearing the end of the route, the bus driver finally stopped at a location whete a whole load of kids came on board with us. Immediately after this point, we arrived at a church gathering where many people were having followship at a beach.
This was a congregation from another church that was meeting there. They were having enjoying one anothers company eating and enjoying the atmosphere. We brought a single pizza to share, because that is all we had, and I set it down with the other food.
The senior pastor asked why I had left the previous church. I told him the reason why. I explained that the other pastor who rebuked me was arrogant, selfish, and always had to prove himself right. As well as he would not listen to a single word of correction.
I remember saying to him, “Why don’t you just have a conversation about doctrine and theology with him sometime. You will see how firm and unwavering he is in his own ideas, in his own mind. He will not listen to anything from the Spirit of the Lord, but he holds to the teachings of men!”
I looked back and saw that the rebuking pastors’ children had eaten most of the pizza I had brought. But I smiled, that was ok with me. Then I ate one piece myself.
After this I entered a larger church where I noticed that many of the ceiling tiles in all the rooms and hallways were bad, deteriorated, and very dirty. So I started to tear them down to throw them away. As I pulled the tiles out they disappeared. People were walking all over the building while I was doing this. But they didn’t even notice what I was doing and those who did see what I was doing didn’t understand it either.
A young pastor who felt like he had authority in the church confronted me sharply and demanded to know why I was tearing down these ceiling tiles.
I told him the ceiling tiles are bad and must be removed. He didn’t understand as well and continued to follow me as I made my way to the sanctuary of this large church.
There was a service going on there. I immediately went into the center of the people and started to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Laying hands on them, praying, and pulling off sticky plates that were all over them. The plates were hiding who they really were and what the Lord had purposed them truly to be. This opened up gifts of the Spirit, causing them to now be able to function in those gifts.
Starting from the center of the people they started praising the Lord God, Jesus Christ. At first many were opposed to what I was doing. Those who were on the outside edge, who could not see clearly what was happening. But then like a wave moving out in all directions they all proclaimed the praises of the Lord and changd their minds. Many were being healed, set free from demons and oppression in many ways.
I remember having both hands raised, praising the Lord, and falling on my knees praising Him.
Then a well-known Pastor, who did have authority came over and asked what was happening, in a pleasant way. He had been out on the edge of the room observing everything that had happened. I was in the Spirit. I knew he had this authority. So I stopped and stood up.
He exclaimed to me that it was the most incredible thing he has ever seen. The working of the Spirit of the Lord upon the people. He then told me that I had reached 2.7 million people, just in that service alone. This amazed me because I thought there was only around two hundred present. This news filled my heart with joy, knowing God was using me far greater than I could imagine.
The other young pastor was trying to take credit for me being there. But the well-known pastor would not listen to him. He knew better and told me he wanted to have me come with him to minister to many more around the world. To save many souls for the kingdom of God.
In my dream, I woke up and started to tell my parents all about it and to my friend who was with me on the bus.
As I recounted in the dream, about ministering to the crowd, I told them that demons were coming out of people. I began to cry for joy and I felt the Spirit of the Lord closer than ever before.
Then I really woke up and I wanted to feel the Lord that close once again.
Praise God for that! What a wonderful dream and answer to prayer! Thank you, Lord!
