Unleavened Bread Ministries with David Eells

12 Man-children Going Forth from UBM

Anonymous - 10/9/2008
(David's notes in red)

I had a dream about David and I have never dreamed about him before. In it he was in a large room with the other brethren and myself. We were talking together and for some reason my mother was with me and I called her over to introduce her to David. About this time some men came to take David to another place and they went off to his right. Everyone started rushing in that direction. I also started running and came up to a railing with an opening in it.

I had the impression that this may have been a stadium or an arena, as I believe there were steps to go down and possibly also levels above. I stood there in the opening to see what was happening. (Stadiums are places where the Word is passed on to increasingly larger rows of people.)

I stood there for a bit and then moved to another area. However, there were so many people in front of me that I could not see, so I went back to where I was at first.

When I got there someone said, "It is over; it is finished! Only 12 received this gifting, anointing or equipping for the work ahead". (I believe it could be 12 from the UBM fellowship.) Everyone was very joyful and excited about this.

When I awoke I pondered this dream a long time and believe that this was the "Man-child anointing". I distinctly remember that only 12 were given this anointing.

UBM has been prophesied for years to be a spearhead for the man-child ministry. The head of the man-child body is born first; then the body; then the anointing. This could represent 12 people from UBM and it could also represent a portion of 12 spiritual tribes from the 12 Apostolic forefathers. In all, there will be 12,000 from 12 spiritual forefathers of 12 tribes making 144,000 that come into the man-child ministry.


Twelve at the Feast
Rex Veron - 10/13/2009, 10:28 AM
(Deb Horton's notes in green)

I had a dream about a week or two ago and it's the first dream I've had with David and me both in it. I've sought the Lord for meaning. I know it is spiritual and it is about preparation but that's it, besides being very short. I dreamed it more than three times. (2Co.13:1) This is the third time I am coming to you. At the mouth of two witnesses or three shall every word be established. Each time I would ask, "What does this mean?" and then the dream would start over:

In the dream, there were 11 men, besides David, which made 12. (This is the Man-child company, represented by the 12 loaves of unleavened showbread.) The only one I saw and recognized was David but I felt we were all very close. We were all mature and had on white flowing robes with a belt at the waist. There was a long table (representing the Table of Showbread) covered with a white, silk table cloth (representing the prayer shawl, or tallit) with gold tassel fringe (the tzit-tzit) all the way around. (To the best of my knowledge, the showbread was covered by a tallit.) The plates, forks, knives, spoons, goblets and napkin holders were all of gold and neatly in place. They were very ornate and regal and there was a very pleasing, sweet aroma (frankincense, representing the anointing) wafting through the space. (Lev.24:6) And thou shalt set them in two rows, six on a row, upon the pure table before the Lord. (7) And thou shalt put pure frankincense upon each row, that it may be to the bread for a memorial, even an offering made by fire unto the Lord. (8) Every sabbath day he shall set it in order before the Lord continually; it is on the behalf of the children of Israel, an everlasting covenant.

A voice with love, authority and power told us to sit down. There was no jockeying for position or placement; we just seemed to know where we were supposed to sit and we took our places. (2Ch.13:11) And they burn unto the Lord every morning and every evening burnt-offerings and sweet incense: the showbread also [set they] in order upon the pure table... There was a sense that food was on its way. (The Man-child company is the food, the unleavened bread.) I felt the 12 in the room were getting ready to receive something really wonderful and a call that would be like the ministry of Jesus and even greater. There were six seats on each side of the table, with a place set at each end but we 12 were the only ones in the space. I say space because there were no walls -- none that I could see -- nor was there a ceiling that I recall. I didn't pay attention to the flooring. I'd ask the question, "What does this mean?" and the dream would start over, but nothing changed.


12-Pointed Star of the Man-child Lion
Jena Neal - 12/17/2008

In the dream, Jena was at some public showers. Later, everyone went outside into what appeared to be something like a campground. Everyone started to look up because there was a star approaching in the sky. The star was radiating light and had several colors emanating from it like fireworks or Christmas lights. She felt so much joy in her heart and soul. Daniel, her husband, then said, "Baby, it's the first sign". She had some papers in her hands that somehow knew they represented the 12 points on the star. The star was so beautiful and started to move over them, sparkling and shooting light. Everyone started singing the song that says, "Praise God from whom all blessings flow", although she knew some people that sang didn't do it from the heart. Jena then fell on her knees and then on her face on the ground. She was overwhelmed with peace, joy and love. Then something fell into her hand like a wooden dowel of some kind with knobs at the ends. She didn't see it but only felt it. She wanted to praise God but was speechless and overwhelmed with joy. She then woke up, unable to move from the impression.

She couldn't go back to sleep for a long time. When she fell asleep again, she had another dream. She was driving in a car with her mom while dark. In the sky, there was the face of a lion. Her mom couldn't see it. End of dream.

Note from David: The star announced the coming of Jesus the Man-child and now history repeats. The 12-pointed star represents the birth of Jesus in the man-child, from whom many blessings will flow. The face of the lion is what the earth and evil will see now. First the lamb and now the lion.


Twelve Big Fish Coming to UBM
Leon Mylenek - 08/08/2012

My wife, Roberta, was saying with great concern that there was a lot on David. Then I heard, "Some of the big fish are coming to help". (We have had dreams of 12 big fish being raised up in UBM, as 12 Man-children.)


12 Grains of Corn
Debbie Horton - 09/09/2012
(David's notes in red)

As I was waking up this morning, I saw a newspaper with a headline in big, bold black print. It ended with an exclamation mark, which a real headline never does because the headline itself is the exclamation. It read, 12 GRAINS OF CORN FOUND!

I immediately took this to mean the very first 12 grains of the Man-child company have been selected.

-The 12 are one forefather for each of the 12 tribes or apostles.

-Instead of using the word "kernel", it used "grain", so I pondered that and think it's referring to Abraham's children being as the grains of sand of the sea.

- Grains of sand made me think of an hourglass and that time is running out.

- (Psa.139:17) How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God! How great is the sum of them! (18) If I should count them, they are more in number than the sand: When I awake, I am still with thee.

- I think it's "corn" instead of "wheat" because corn would refer to an ear of corn and the Man-child will hear only what the Father says. "Let him hear what the Spirit sayeth to the churches".

- The exclamation mark is because, until the actual coming of Christ in the clouds (which will not need a news report, since every eye will see it), the Man-child is the biggest, most exciting news ever since Christ physically walked the earth.

- When a person "exclaims" something, they are both speaking it into existence and bringing attention to it.

- Yom Kippur (which translates "Day of Covering") is on the 26th. It's the concluding day of the Ten Days of Awe, which began with Rosh Hashanah ("Head of the Year") on September 17, and the Man-child is the Head of the body.

Just think about it. One grain is multiplied many, many times when it falls into the earth and dies, just like the Man-child as one grain, one spiritual forefather for each tribe. One grain brings forth many ears full of grains.

12 Man-children
Alan Charles Simpson - 08/13/2015

At first I see a vision of a man in chainmail kneeling behind a shield "at 12:00" and then there were 11 others. All 12 were around the face of a clock in the 12 hourly positions facing forward toward those who could view the clock with their heads toward the outside edge of the clock. All had on chainmail.

Note from David: This seems like the coming Man-child warriors in defensive position.

12 Man-children of the True House
[ audio ]
Vanessa Weeks - 04/16/2016
(David's notes in red)

In my dream, Barry (my husband) and I were in a large house with other Christians eating a meal. (This meal represents Passover, the time of crucifixion of the Man-child. This is the true house where sin and the curse are conquered; the house where disciples learn to take up their cross.) After the meal, 12 man-children were revealed to us in the room. (This represents the resurrection of the Man-child to the throne three days after the crucifixion when He will be revealed to those around Him. He is now different, for the Lord has come in Him as He said he would as the latter rain [Hosea 6:1-3].) They had been eating with us. (As Jesus ate the last supper with the disciples before the crucifixion and resurrection to the throne. These are partakers in the crucified life.)

They were David, Michael and 10 men I did not know. The thing that impressed me is that they were all unassuming and humble. Then we were all going to another room where these men would speak to us. (After the Passover comes the days of Unleavened Bread representing the true teaching of Jesus in the Man-child. The first 31/2 years of the tribulation is where Jesus taught the disciples the Unleavened Bread and now history will repeat with the Man-child company.)

This large house where the Man-child leads and teaches is the place for the elect, not the old house of our religious past where we grew up in which Vanessa was locked out of in the next scene.

I don't know how it happened, but I accidentally locked myself out of the house and it was now the house I grew up in. (We cannot go back to the playpen. It would be apostasy for us. When we do go back after the Man-child training it will be because we have been prepared to bring enlightenment to them and are sent by the Lord.) It started to rain and I knocked on the doors, but no one heard me. They were singing and could not hear me. (They will play church and not be able to hear until it is God's time. The old house of our youth should be out in the rain, former and latter, but the Bride, represented by Vanessa here, will bring this revelation to them which she received from the Man-child ministry.)

After a while a child let me in and I was really wet. (A Man-child and the rain of the Holy Spirit made it possible for Vanessa, as a type of the Bride, to bring this anointing of the Word and Spirit into the Mother Church as the Shulammite in Song of Solomon did. {Son.3:2} I said, I will rise now, and go about the city; In the streets and in the broad ways I will seek him whom my soul loveth: I sought him, but I found him not. The Shulammite bride did not find Jesus in the broadways of Babylon. {3} The watchmen (pastors) that go about the city found me; To whom I said, Saw ye him whom my soul loveth? Those who do not get captured by the Babylonish teachers will find Jesus when they leave them. {4} It was but a little that I passed from them (the pastors), When I found him whom my soul loveth: I held him, and would not let him go, Until I had brought him into my mother's house, And into the chamber of her that conceived me. Then they will be able to bring Jesus back to the mother when they learn to not let Him go, to put Him first, the Word first. The pastors love to steal the real Jesus from you so they can assimilate you into their cult of Baal worship.)

After I came in, I saw the tall white windows and they were opened just enough for me to come though. I wondered why I did not see it when I was out there. (But climbing through a window would have been "climbing up some other way", as Jesus said. When the Bride comes to them, it will be only through the door of Jesus as Vanessa did. {Joh.10:1} Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door into the fold of the sheep, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber. {2} But he that entereth in by the door is the shepherd of the sheep. {3} To him the porter openeth; and the sheep hear his voice: and he calleth his own sheep by name, andleadeth them out. {4} When he hath put forth all his own, he goeth before them, and the sheep follow him: for they know his voice. Notice the Bride with the Word, the voice of the Lord, will lead God's people out of Babylonish bondage. {5} And a stranger will they not follow, but will flee from him: for they know not the voice of strangers. They will be delivered from the strangers in the so-called "Lord's house" who plundered them.)

{6} This parable spake Jesus unto them: but they understood not what things they were which he spake unto them. {7} Jesus therefore said unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep. {8} All that came before me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear them. Those who were thieves and robbers came up another way. Those who have received a worthless foundation of the Word from the Babylonish pastors are plundered by every beast of the field. {Eze.34:2} Son of man, prophesy against the shepherds of Israel, prophesy, and say unto them, even to the shepherds, Thus saith the Lord Jehovah: Woe unto the shepherds of Israel that do feed themselves! should not the shepherds feed the sheep? {3} Ye eat the fat, and ye clothe you with the wool, ye kill the fatlings; but ye feed not the sheep. {4} The diseased have ye not strengthened, neither have ye healed that which was sick (They die of trusting in witchcraft, translated from the Greek word pharmakeia. In the U.S. alone, more than 450,000 a year die of pharmakeia.) , neither have ye bound up that which was broken, neither have ye brought back that which was driven away, neither have ye sought that which was lost; but with force and with rigor have ye ruled over them (They put them under the law to them to separate them from the Word of Christ unto themselves. {Gal.5:4} Ye are severed from Christ, ye who would be justified by the law; ye are fallen away from grace.) {Eze.34:5} And they were scattered, because there was no shepherd; and they became food to all the beasts of the field, and were scattered. They were devoured by the nations of the world and became worldly in all their doings and in their salvations, which are of man.)

{Jer.50:6} My people have been lost sheep: their shepherds have caused them to go astray; they have turned them away on the mountains; they have gone from mountain to hill (They turn the sheep away from the Spirit-filled Heavenly higher places of safety and holiness to the low places of religious rules and departing from the Word); they have forgotten their resting-place. The rest from our own works comes from faith in the Word, which they reject and keep their followers from. {7} All that found them have devoured them; and their adversaries said, We are not guilty, because they have sinned against Jehovah, the habitation of righteousness, even Jehovah, the hope of their fathers. Our spiritual forefathers taught us that abiding in the Word, who is Christ, is a place of safety, holiness and provision. {8} Flee out of the midst of Babylon, and go forth out of the land of the Chaldeans, and be as the he-goats before the flocks. In other words, don't wait for anyone else to leave first; be the first ones out of there.)

Next, my boss (from my job) told me to do something and I told him I didn't hear that part of the lesson because I was out of the house. I asked Vanessa which house she was out of to miss the lesson because both scenarios give us a good lesson. She said, "I was out of the old house when I did not hear that part of the lesson. But I had a sense I didn't hear part of the Man-child's lesson in the new house also". So let's examine both scenarios.

Next my boss (from my job) told me to do something and I told him I didn't hear that part of the lesson because I was out of the (new) house. (We will not be able to hear and obey our boss, the Lord, if we miss the lessons given in the new house because we are entangled with the old house. We need the lessons of the new house to be able to walk with the Lord. {Amo.3:3} Shall two walk together, except they have agreed? Therefore we must come out of the old house of apostasy. {2Co.6:14} Be not unequally yoked with unbelievers: for what fellowship have righteousness and iniquity? or what communion hath light with darkness? {15} And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what portion hath a believer with an unbeliever? {16} And what agreement hath a temple of God with idols? for we are a temple of the living God; even as God said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. {17} Wherefore Come ye out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, And touch no unclean thing; And I will receive you, {18} And will be to you a Father, And ye shall be to me sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty. {7:1} Having therefore these promises, beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all defilement of flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.

Next, my boss (from my job) told me to do something and I told him I didn't hear that part of the lesson because I was out of the (old) house. (The boss cannot make you do what you don't have the grace to do. As we saw, " with force and with rigor have ye ruled over them". They are like Pharaoh over the old house of bondage to the old man. It's good to miss the lessons of Egypt and Babylon and to sit with the true disciples of Christ where "they know not the voice of strangers" and as Jesus told Martha concerning Mary, who chose to sit at His feet and learn, {Luk.10:42} but one thing is needful: for Mary hath chosen the good part, which shall not be taken away from her.) Mary could have gotten caught up in Martha's works or that of the scribes and Pharisees and not learned grace through faith.

I believe the Father gave me Romans 5:21. Here it is in context: {Rom.5:20} And the law came in besides, that the trespass might abound; but where sin abounded, grace did abound more exceedingly: {21} that, as sin reigned in death, even so might grace reign through righteousness unto eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. The law came to show sin and men died when they were no longer ignorant but with grace God's power to obey is present through faith. The law of religious men is the same way. You cannot legislate morality; it must be a gift by faith through grace. The Pharisees of our day don't know how to apply this, so they frustrate people who constantly get moralized through the pulpit but continue to fail to live up to it and settle for forgiveness without holiness.

Here is a similar teaching about growing from the old house to the new house in chapter 21 of our book, Sovereign God, For Us and Through Us:


Chapter 21: Holiness and Dominion

Holding a form of godliness, but having denied the power thereof: from these also turn away 2Ti.3:5).

God gave dominion unto Samson even in his ignorance. What was the secret of Samson's power? Judges tells us that the secret was his long hair, and as soon as he lost his long hair he lost his power. Samson was not a big, muscle-bound man. In Judges 16:17, he told Delilah, If I be shaven, then my strength will go from me, and I shall become weak, and be like any other man. His enemies wanted to know the secret of his power. They were not asking, "How did you get such big muscles?" That did not occur to them. It is not because of our great ability, or power, or wisdom, or even sinlessness, but through what Jesus did at the cross that we have this authority to reign over sin and its curse. Samson reigned over the enemies of God's people. When Samson lost his submission to God, he lost his dominion. In 1 Corinthians 11:3-16, the long hair was given unto the woman as a sign of submission to her husband. Who is our husband? The Lord is our husband. The one who took the Nazarite vow, as Samson did, could not cut his hair as a sign of submission. The point is that this great dominion was given to Samson, and he lost it because he lost his hair, a sign of his submission to the Lord.

Nazarites were separated from the world by their submission unto the Lord, signified by their long hair. (Num.6:5) All the days of his vow of separation there shall no razor come upon his head: until the days be fulfilled, in which he separateth himself unto the Lord, he shall be holy; he shall let the locks of the hair of his head grow long. This separation by submission is the meaning of holiness. How did Samson lose his holiness and power? (Jdg.16:19) And she (Delilah) made him sleep upon her knees; and she called for a man, and shaved off the seven locks of his head; and she began to afflict him, and his strength went from him. Samson went to sleep, spiritually meaning he no longer had his eyes open to the light of the truth. He submitted his head or mind in the lap of the harlot Delilah and lost his hair (submission, separation, holiness) and consequently his power or dominion. The moral of that story is that we should not let the harlot have our mind for then we will have no power of dominion. The religious systems of man, the harlot, have deprived God's people of their power because they are not submitted to the Word of God. (2Ti.3:5) Holding a form of godliness, but having denied the power thereof: from these also turn away.

The "bride" in the Song of Solomon was a prophetic parable of the sojourning of the Bride today, who temporarily lost her submission. (Son.5:7) The watchmen (ministers) that go about the city found me, They smote me, they wounded me; The keepers of the walls (denominations or sects) took away my mantle (Hebrew: "veil") from me. The watchmen are identified by the Lord as shepherds (Hebrew: "pastors") in Isaiah 56:10-12. These pastors, in trying to keep the Bride within their sectarian walls, smote her and took away her veil, which is also a sign of submission to her husband, the Lord. (1Co.11:3)... The head of the woman is the man... (5) But every woman praying or prophesying with her head unveiled dishonoreth her head... (10) for this cause ought the woman to have [a sign of ] authority on her head... (13) Judge ye in yourselves: is it seemly that a woman pray unto God unveiled? False shepherds have made the people of God submissive to religions rather than Christ.

In a true type to our day, the Bride in vain sought her beloved first in the broad ways of Babylonish religion. (Son.3:2) [I said], I will rise now, and go about the city (Babylon); In the streets and in the broad ways I will seek him whom my soul loveth: I sought him, but I found him not. She sought Him from the false shepherds whose loyalty was to themselves and their own kingdom.

(3) The watchmen that go about the city found me; [To whom I said], Saw ye him whom my soul loveth? It was not until she was delivered from them that she found the one whom her soul sought. (4) It was but a little that I passed from them, When I found him whom my soul loveth: I held him, and would not let him go, (In her excitement she wanted to share Him with those among whom she was first conceived and birthed.) Until I had brought him into my mother's house, And into the chamber of her that conceived me. The other daughters of that corporate mother did not share her excitement for her peculiar beloved. (5:9) What is thy beloved more than [another] beloved, O thou fairest among women? What is thy beloved more than [another] beloved, That thou dost so adjure us? Because of her not being content with "another Jesus", she was not defiled with the religions of these other daughters and was chosen by her Lord. (6:9) My dove, my undefiled, is [but] one; She is the only one of her mother; She is the choice one of her that bare her. The daughters saw her, and called her blessed... She regained her dominion when she became undefiled with the women representing the false religious systems. Those who bear fruit will walk in the holiness of her steps, not being defiled with the seed (word) of men, for they are spiritual virgins. (Rev.14:4) These are they that were not defiled with women; for they are virgins. These [are] they that follow the Lamb whithersoever he goeth. These were purchased from among men, [to be] the firstfruits unto God and unto the Lamb. The sects of Christianity have become defiled with what Paul warned in 2 Corinthians 11:4, Another Jesus, whom we did not preach, or [if ] ye receive a different spirit, which ye did not receive, or a different Gospel, which ye did not accept. (2Co.6:17) Wherefore Come ye out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, And touch no unclean thing; And I will receive you. Only the Word is the truth that sets free. (2Co.7:1) Having therefore these promises, beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all defilement of flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.

Jesus calls His sheep out of the fold of apostate religion to follow the Lamb whithersoever he goeth. (Joh.10:3)... He calleth his own sheep by name, and leadeth them out. (4) When he hath put forth all his own, he goeth before them, and the sheep follow him: for they know his voice. (5) And a stranger will they not follow, but will flee from him: for they know not the voice of strangers. This little flock that follows the Lord in rest is what the bride sought for. (Son.1:7) Tell me, O thou whom my soul loveth, Where thou feedest [thy flock], Where thou makest [it] to rest at noon: For why should I be as one that is veiled Beside the flocks of thy companions? The veil in this case represents the blindness and bondage of submission to religion. (2Co.3:15) But unto this day, whensoever Moses is read, a veil lieth upon their heart. (16) But whensoever it shall turn to the Lord, the veil is taken away. (17) Now the Lord is the Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, [there] is liberty. (18) But we all, with unveiled face beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are transformed into the same image from glory to glory... As we can see, those who are unveiled of the legalism of religion see the Lord and come into His likeness.

The beloved Lord's answer to "Where thou feedest [thy flock]?" was (Son.1:8) If thou know not, O thou fairest among women, Go thy way forth by the footsteps of the flock, And feed thy kids beside the shepherds' tents. In Jesus' day it was not possible to feed His Church, meaning "called-out ones", in the apostate sects of Judaism, so He fed them "beside the shepherds' tents". Likewise, because the Church has greatly apostatized in our day, Jesus is feeding the flock of freedom, rest, and truth, outside the shepherds' tents. This brought reproach to the bride and Jesus. (6)... My mother's sons were incensed against me.... Those who take up their cross to follow Jesus are commanded to accept this same reproach. (Heb.13:11) For the bodies of those beasts whose blood is brought into the holy place by the high priest [as an offering] for sin, are burned without the camp. (12) Wherefore Jesus also, that he might sanctify the people through his own blood, suffered without the gate. (13) Let us therefore go forth unto him without the camp, bearing his reproach.

Moses, in a true type of Christ, led his people out of the camp of the rebellious apostates.

(Exo.33:7) Now Moses used to take the tent and to pitch it without the camp, afar off from the camp; and he called it, The tent of meeting. And it came to pass, that every one that sought the Lord went out unto the tent of meeting, which was without the camp. It is in these days that thundering judgments will put the fear of God in those in the camp to come out and meet with the "called-out ones" on the true mountain of God's kingdom. (Exo. 19:15) And he said unto the people, Be ready against the third day: come not near a woman (apostate sect). (16) And it came to pass on the third day, when it was morning (the beginning of the third millennium since the last Adam - where we are now [2Pe.3:8]), that there were thunders and lightnings, and a thick cloud upon the mount, and the voice of a trumpet exceeding loud; and all the people that were in the camp trembled. (17) And Moses brought forth the people out of the camp to meet God; and they stood at the nether part of the mount.

If you have discovered that you have been following man's religions and decide to repent, God will restore your dominion. In bondage to the Philistines, Samson repented and his hair began to grow. His dominion returned and he brought down their false temple upon their heads. (Jdg.16:30) And Samson said, Let me die with the Philistines. And he bowed himself with all his might; and the house fell upon the lords, and upon all the people that were therein. So the dead that he slew at his death were more than they that he slew in his life. Likewise, as we die to self, we increase in dominion over our enemies.

Few who ever exercised dominion in the earth for God were manifestly perfect, including Samson. He refused the dominion of the Lord over himself, and he ultimately lost the dominion that he had over the earth. It is not necessary for God to take away the promises of dominion from the rebellious. Their own heart will not have the faith to partake of it. (1Jn.3:21) Beloved, if our heart condemn us not, we have boldness toward God; and whatsoever we ask we receive of him, because we keep his commandments and do the things that are pleasing in his sight. If we do not serve God, our own heart will condemn us and we will have no faith to exercise dominion. He is still not speaking of manifestly perfect people here, but He does expect us to be disciples, walking in the light that we have. In this way, we are perfect by faith until we manifest perfection. The baby Christian has little knowledge of good and evil, but he is innocent in God's eyes if he is doing what he knows to do. Baby Christians have dominion over sin and the curse, but not over God's people.

Years ago, I had a dream instructing me about the way in which God promotes some to leadership positions over His people. I am making no claims for myself with this dream, merely pointing out principles. In this dream, there were two mountains. (The first mountain represents the kingdom of the world, Babylon, and the second mountain represents the kingdom of God, Mount Zion.) I was driving a car down the first steep mountain. (This represents humbling ourselves to the Word [Isa.40:4], becoming as a child [Mat.18:4], and losing our carnal life in this world [Mat.16:25- 26].) The road that descended this mountain had a trench going down the center of it to the bottom. My car had one set of tires on one side of the trench while the other set was on the other side. I could not turn right or left without falling into the trench and, of course, halting my progress. (Joshua received instructions similar to this for taking the Promised Land. (Jos.1:7) Only be strong and very courageous, to observe to do according to all the law, which Moses my servant commanded thee: turn not from it to the right hand or to the left, that thou mayest have good success whithersoever thou goest. Turning to the right or to the left symbolizes getting off the narrow road of Scripture. It will stop us from exercising authority to take our promised land, which symbolizes living on the promises.)

At the bottom of this hill, I got out of the car. I sensed that I had many enemies. (The more we humble ourselves to God's Word the more enemies we will have, both in the carnal church and the world, just as our Lord.) Then I found, hidden under a bush, some tools like hammers, screwdrivers, and wrenches, which were drenched in oil. (The burning bush is where Moses received authority to deliver God's people from bondage. Tools bind and loose, as does God's authority given to His disciples (Mat.18:18).The promises of the Word are the binding and loosing keys to the kingdom of God that were given to disciples. The oil signifies the power of the Holy Spirit. In other words, if we stay in the straight and narrow way, we will receive authority to bind and loose for God.) From there, I turned to the right (The sheep are set on the right [Mat.25:33].) and went up a steep mountain. (Going down the first mountain entitles us to go up the next. Being humbled in the estimation of the world makes us great in the estimation of the kingdom. The last shall be first and the least shall be greatest. (Isa.40:3)... Prepare ye in the wilderness the way of the Lord... (4) Every valley shall be exalted, and every mountain and hill shall be made low... The way of the Lord is that those who are humble in the world shall be promoted on God's mountain, but those who are exalted on the worldly mountain will have to come down.) (Jas.4:10) Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall exalt you.)

Reaching the top of the mountain, I went through the door of an immense palace. (Joh.10:2) But he that entereth in by the door is the shepherd of the sheep. (7) Jesus therefore said unto them again, Ver- ily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep. (Jesus is the only Shepherd of the sheep. He uses vessels that come to the sheep only through Him, the door. This palace represents the New Jerusalem on Mount Zion, the city that rules over God's people.) Old Jerusalem ruled over God's physical letter people just as New Jerusalem rules over God's spiritual New Testament people. Paul declared that we have come to this spiritual city. He showed us that it is not a physical city that can be touched. (Heb.12:18) For ye are not come unto [a mount] that might be touched... (22) but ye are come unto mount Zion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem... (23) to the general assembly and church of the firstborn.... (Jesus' called-out ones come to this mountain. Our journey is to come to this mountain, climb it, and enter the throne room through the door.)

Then I saw Jesus, the Son of David, sitting on the throne of David. I walked over and sat down next to him, and we talked. (The throne is the place of dominion that the bride has next to her king.) (Rev.3:21) He that overcometh, I will give to him to sit down with me in my throne, as I also over-came, and sat down with my Father in his throne. All who overcome the stubbornness of their evil heart, to abide in the Name of Jesus, will come to this throne. (Jer.3:17) At that time they shall call Jerusalem the throne of the Lord; and all the nations (of the Gentile Church) shall be gathered unto it, to the name of the Lord, to Jerusalem: neither shall they walk any more after the stubborn- ness of their evil heart. (All who overcome the first mountain of the world will live on the second mountain of the kingdom of God. These act in "the name of the Lord" because they are seated in the throne of authority with Jesus. This position has been given to all who are born again, but many have turned to the right or left and do not take their rightful position by abiding in Christ.) (Eph.2:5) Even when we were dead through our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace have ye been saved), (6) and raised us up with him, and made us to sit with him in the heavenly [places], in Christ Jesus. As I talked with Jesus, I heard a noise behind me and turned to see some men trying to climb up into the throne room through a rear window. Jesus said, "Don't worry about them; they can't come in here". (Obviously, the position of authority may be usurped in Babylon but not in Zion, God's mountain and kingdom.) (Joh.10:1)... He that entereth not by the door into the fold of the sheep, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber. Jesus, speaking of the apostate ministers of His day said, All that came before me are thieves and robbers (Joh.10:8); and so it is today. Many have stolen the position of authority by not going down the road of humbling themselves to the Word and entering through the door of Christ. They have robbed the sheep of gifted mentors. They have robbed the sheep of Christ, for ministers can only pass on what they are.

Religion has historically made the same mistake. They mistake education in a sect of Christianity to be God's authority and commission. The disciples were perceived to be unlearned and ignorant by the religious leaders (Act.4:13). However, the religious leaders knew that the disciples had been with Jesus by their gifts. Faith, fruit, maturity, submission to the Lord, and personal knowledge of the Lord and His ways must be passed on to the sheep. Ministers cannot pass on what they do not possess themselves. The daughter harlots (Rev.17:5) are still mass producing hirelings (Joh.10:12-13; Isa.56:9-12); but Jesus comes to lead His sheep out of the Babylonish sheepfolds of men (Joh.10:3-4) so that, unhindered by the traditions of men, they may run after Him. A man must be an elder in experience and maturity in the Word to be promoted as a bishop (overseer) over God's people.(1Ti.3:1-7; Tit.1:5-9).

A friend dreamed about Christians as babies with beards, showing they had been with the Lord for many years but were still immature. God's people have loved the world so He has given them immature apostate leaders to tell them what they want to hear. (Isa.3:4) And I will give children to be their princes, and babes shall rule over them. (5) And the people shall be oppressed, every one by another, and every one by his neighbor: the child shall behave himself proudly against the old man, and the base against the honorable. Choose the man with the gift over the man with the title. (2Ti.4:3) For the time will come when they will not endure the sound doctrine; but, having itching ears, will heap to themselves teachers after their own lusts; (4) and will turn away their ears from the truth, and turn aside unto fables.
