17 November 2016 - Man, oh, man have I been dreaming. It's always like this in a season of prayer, though. And it has been so good.
I went through five days of physical spiritual birthing of three babies for myself and one for The Lord at the beginning of the month, and I'm still birthing more babies in dreams. Here are three recent dreams.
11/6/16: My son was in his room and found a baby in a carrier in the closet. He called me to come look and said, "I can't believe she brought her baby."
Smiling, I took the carrier from him and said, "Yeah, no mom's gonna leave her baby." Then took it into my own room.
This dream was about the birth I did for The Lord. Right before the 2016 Presidential Election, He pulled me into intense intercession and birthing posture. I didn't know this particular birthing/intercession was about the election until praying over the dream above and receiving the revelation.
Speaking of this dream, I submitted it to my dream team for additional insight, and a trainee interpreted it. Their interpretation only bore witness with my spirit on one point. Their mistake was they used a dictionary to interpret based on symbols instead of allowing Holy Spirit to speak to them about the dream. Books and things are helpful, but interpretations come through communing and submitting to Holy Spirit who knits each dreamer together before they are born.
11/16/16: I was in a house that was a home for orphans run by nuns. Two nuns called me to an office upstairs and showed me twin babies. One was either deformed or premature and they'd put him in a sealed plastic bag. I stood at the door of the office and the nun behind the desk told me they weren't keeping those babies, and she tossed the one in the bag at my feet. I poked a hole in the bag and opened it so it could breathe. The second nun held the other baby, and I asked why they weren't keeping them.
I took one of the babies - not sure which - downstairs and called the kids to me and told them we have to pray for these babies 'cause they need a home. So all the kids ran to me and we cried out to Jesus for those babies.
This dream has many layers and deals with my family, includes an assignment from God to speak out against abortion and to train young believers in prayer. And that's just some of the basics of this dream. This is one of those dreams that was short to record, but the interpretation is two pages long.
Last but not least.
11/17/16: Oh, how I enjoyed this dream; joy just flooded through my entire being.
I went from flat stomach to fully formed pregnancy within seconds or minutes - don't know dream time, of course. I sat on the couch with my legs up watching the baby develop inside my belly - through the skin not internally - playing with her and talking to her as she grew. I was full of joy, ridiculous joy the whole time. I said: Hi, this is your mommy. I'm waiting for you and all that kinda stuff. Then I said: I wonder if I should text my sweetheart and tell him I'm pregnant. Don't recall if I did text or not.
This dream is about acceleration and being in God's presence and receiving from Him. And while I prayed over this for interpretation I had a vision of Holy Spirit dancing around me and wrapping me in a white cocoon and a beautiful blue butterfly hovering to the top right. Then He began to speak to me about transformation, divine incubation and He said, "Sit with Me! Sit with Me! I'm preparing to send you out! I'm getting you ready! Look at the dreams I've given you ... look at the visions! You're getting ready!"
Mm, mm, mm ... our God is mightily good. I pray that you commit to enter into a season of prayer so that He can have His way in your soul. Remember: When He prospers your soul, you prosper outwardly.
All honor, praise, glory and power to our Conquering King, Yeshua!
This is strictly my opinion and experience and hopefully enough Biblical wisdom that it can be received and considered.
Communion is another supernatural strategy given to us in The Word to live abundant life in Christ. Make use of it.
11.7.2016 - While magnifying Yeshua and His Name which is above all others, The Spirit of The Lord broke through with a message that is for more than just my prayer partner and myself.
"The winds are blowing. The winds are coming ... the winds of change. Hold on, hold on tight to THAT Name - the Name of Jesus. There is power in THAT Name. There is power in My Word."
Thank You, Lord. Immediately after the Word was released I decreed our agreement and asked for our protection. That's what you have to do with prophetic words - God establishes them in heaven where they become law, and the Logos instructs us to establish His Word in the earth because we're His ambassadors. Not stewarding prophetic words properly is largely why they often don't come to pass. If you steward them well, more of your personal words will manifest.
Heavenly Father, I agree with Your Word and welcome the winds of change into my life, city, state, nation and the world. I ask in Yeshua's Name that you make me like a tree planted by rivers of water, in the Court of the Lord, with deep roots that cannot be moved by the wind. I thank You for blowing away every leaf and branch that isn't producing fruit. I declare this by faith in Messiah Yeshua and with Holy Spirit. Amen.
I've been in a season of prayer since September 1, 2016 and I've been recording at least 4-6 dream segments each day. I've always been a dreamer - high school is when I started paying attention to them - but I've never dreamed as much as I am right now. I want to share a couple interesting ones with you.
Wednesday 9.7.2016 - I was sitting with others in some place. There was an orthodox Jewish man standing behind me. Someone walked by and placed a Torah scroll and a tallit in my hands. The cloth had Hebrew written in beautiful, bright blue lettering.
Meaning - I love this dream so much. Yeshua is the Jewish man who stood behind me. An angel, who is a servant/ministering spirit, brought me a prayer shawl and The Book of The Law because I've grown closer to Him during this time of being set apart in prayer and study. I'm able to receive the secrets of The Logos and of Himself as The Word made flesh. The words written on the tallit represent divine revelation and the rhema from His lips and not only the Written Word.
Let me tell ya, I did sit with Yeshua and receive revelation, understanding and wisdom right from His lips. And what I received from Him has changed my life, yet again. He's so wonderful! I bless The Name of Yeshua, The Lamb of God and Messiah of Israel!
Tuesday 9.20.2016 - A celebrity who I consider to be perverse - there's no other way to describe them - said to me, "I listen to Holy Spirit and I have a message for you. When you pray in tongues no one can understand you and your prayers aren't being answered."
Meaning - First of all this was a demonic hijack by a lying spirit that was assigned to stop me from praying with power. The demon was correct in that they can't understand what I'm saying when I pray in The Spirit, but I'm speaking directly to my Dad, not to them, and He can definitely understand me. This was the first of two dreams where the enemy was trying to get me stop praying in tongues. In the next dream targeting my prayer power, the same thing was said to me, but there were two sisters telling me to stop praying in tongues 'cause it was supposedly ineffective.
They're hilarious. It's funny to experience their frustrations. They do get frustrated when what they're trying to do against us doesn't work. So that means two things:
This type of dream would hinder an immature believer, one who's unsure about the gift of tongues and/or one who's under attack and wavering in faith because they don't have enough Word in them (Romans 10:17). I know the devil was lying to me because The Bible tells me to pray constantly in The Spirit (Ephesians 6:18) and that I'm speaking directly to Dad when doing so (1 Corinthians 14:2). So when someone's telling me - anyone or anything is telling me - something other than what's in The Logos, I do what The Word instructs. I let God's Word be true and men (and demons, 'cause that's what they ARE and DO) be liars (Romans 3:4).
I pray you're honoring Holy Spirit's voice speaking to you in your night dreams and visions. Baruch atah Adonai eloheynu melech ha'olam!
