Dreams from the LORD 2011-2015
27 May 2015
Last night I had a disturbing dream. In the dream, I was working for this guy that I know in Idaho. (I have stayed with he and his family many times over the years in my hitchhiking travels. He is a lukewarm Christian.) I was working with him and his hired man in what looked like an amphitheater. We were working on the top row of seats and the hired man had his hand outstretched holding onto this wooden panel. As he was leaning on the wooden panel, the lukewarm Christian pulled a lever and the panel dropped down. The hired man lost his balance and fell seventy feet to the concrete storm drain below. I quickly ran to where the hired man fell over the back of the amphitheater and looked down. I could see the hired man’s body crumpled lifeless on the storm drain. It looked like the man was dead: he had massive head and neck injuries and there was blood all over his upper torso. I yelled for help and eventually an emergency medical team came and extracted the body from the amphitheater. I later learned that the hired man did not die, but was severely injured.
In this dream, the lukewarm Christian represents the lukewarm church in the United States. The hired man, of course, is an hireling (John 10: 11-13*) and he works for the lukewarm church. Before the hired man fell and was injured, he was leaning on a wooden panel (wood, hay and stubble—I Corinthians 3: 12-13**—lukewarm Christianity—it will be exposed and consumed by the Holy Ghost Fire). True Christianity is built on the foundation of gold, silver and precious stones: you have to dig deep for gold, silver and precious stones; wood, hay and stubble are easily obtainable (at ground level, superficial) and ultimately worthless.
The hired man was working in an amphitheater. The amphitheater represents worldly entertainment; many churches in the United States are into worldly entertainment. The amphitheater also reminds me of ancient Greek and Roman amphitheaters: Greek philosophy and Roman engineering are not the same thing as Jesus and Him Crucified or the Gospel preached in the power of the Holy Ghost.
The hired man did not die, but was severely injured. I believe this means that the Lord will definitely judge the lukewarm church in America—there will be much damage to the church, but it will survive. Hopefully, after experiencing God’s wrath, the hired man and other lukewarm Christians will turn back to the Lord and not to man-made religion (Greco-Roman, so to speak). In God’s wrath, there is both punishment and redemption.
*John 10: 11-13: “I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep. But he that is an hireling, and not the shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, seeth the wolf coming, and leaveth the sheep, and fleeth: and the wolf catcheth them, and scattereth the sheep. The hireling fleeth, because he is an hireling, and careth not for the sheep.”
**I Corinthians 3: 12-13: “Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble; Every man’s work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man’s work of what sort it is.”
