War to Put Off the Old Man and Beast

Peter K. - 02/11/2008
(Rory and David's notes in red)

The dream takes place on a battle field and it was gloomy (there was no sunlight). (The field is the world in all its darkness.) I shouldn't even call it a field since the area of battle was quite small and it appeared that it was in a dungeon of some sort. (We were in bondage to the man of flesh like Israel in Egypt.) I was dressed in a Spartan's uniform (he represented the saints' battle in the body of the old man), similar to the uniform in the movie "300" with the red cape or cloak (representing sin). There were many other Spartans surrounding me. It appeared that Spartans were warring against other Spartans. (The body of the beast will make war on the body of Christ. Both are in a body of flesh. {2 Cor.10:3} For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh.) The battle had not begun yet but we were all in position for battle. (We are coming to the tribulation war between these two.) Another Spartan and I were positioned beside the king or general of our army. The king (who was elevated on something which may have been a chariot) was holding a spear and in the distance across from him there was an enemy Spartan sitting on a horse. The battle begins.

Immediately on the right, the enemy attacked thrusting his sword by me and killing my king, who throws his spear and kills the Spartan on the horse. (First we get the revelation that Jesus died to conquer the old man and his spirits, including their head, the devil.) At first, it appeared that I was the target but miraculously it missed me and killed the king instead. (We deserved to be the target but Jesus took the blows as in Isaiah 53.) I was frightened and confused, not knowing what to do or where to go. I began to charge into battle with my sword in a state of weakness, still in fear, clueless, and unskillful in war. We all had swords (representing words), but mine may have appeared larger. I would swing my sword without any strength or power, cutting some enemies, but not injuring any as I had expected. I believe the sword could have been heavy, but I am certain that I was weak. ("The spirit is willing but the flesh is weak". "My power is made perfect in weakness".)

As the battle continued, a number of miraculous things happened and nothing could harm me. Praise the Lord!! The enemy (opposing Spartans), one by one, were charging at me with their swords but before they could swing at me they cut their own throats. ({Ps.37:14} The wicked have drawn out the sword, and have bent their bow, To cast down the poor and needy, To slay such as are upright in the way. {15} Their sword shall enter into their own heart, And their bows shall be broken. Like Judas who hung himself with his own hands.) This happened a couple times and with some, after they had cut their throats, I would either jab them or dodge them and continue in battle. Other Spartans would thrust their sword at me but I would get ahold of the blade with my bare hand, bend it like plastic, and jab my sword in their back.

As the battle proceeded and enemies were being defeated, I was also able to swing my sword with strength. ("When I am weak, then am I strong".) As these miraculous things were happening, I became confident, stronger, and courageous with no sense of fear in me. I felt like a helpless child at the beginning of battle, but now I felt like a champion soldier. I must have been maturing. In one instance, a couple of young men, dressed in modern apparel, came out of some form of shelter which was among the battle turf. Maybe it was a small cabin, but I couldn't make out what it was. As I had momentum built up, I stabbed one in the eye with my sword settled in his head. He said, "I'm a Christian", and the other I sliced, not knowing what happened afterwards. (In our youthful exuberance we sometimes battle with Christians and wound them, not realizing we have done this.) When he had spoken this, I pulled my sword out of his eye socket and continued on my way as he continued with his. Again, at the end of the battle I became skillful, stronger, and courageous. I was the only Spartan standing with not a scratch on my body.

I proceeded to my right and entered what seemed to be a market or warehouse with rows of racks of textiles or garments. They appeared to be white. ({Rev.3:18} I counsel thee to buy of me (with your old life) gold refined by fire, that thou mayest become rich; and white garments, that thou mayest clothe thyself, and [that] the shame of thy nakedness be not made manifest; and eyesalve to anoint thine eyes, that thou mayest see.) By the end of the battle we will have given our lives to be dressed in righteous acts of the sanctified ones. {Rev.19:8} And it was given unto her that she should array herself in fine linen, bright (Lampros) [and] pure: for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints.)

Now this market had light what appeared to be sunlight seeping in from somewhere or there was sunlight at the end of this market. It was quite bright compared to the previous scene of the battle field. (The light was coming from the Lampros garments. {2 Cor.3:18} 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... {4:6} Seeing it is God, that said, Light shall shine out of darkness, who shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. ... {10} always bearing about in the body the dying of Jesus, that the life also of Jesus may be manifested in our body. {11} For we who live are always delivered unto death for Jesus' sake, that the life also of Jesus may be manifested in our mortal flesh.)

Suddenly, I heard what sounded to be yelling and laughing which wasn't very pleasant to me. I peeked down one of the rows and saw two or three little girls or children. (The spiritually immature leaders. {Isa.3:12} As for my people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O my people, they that lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths) wearing strange outfits and I think they could have been wearing masks. When I had woken up, they reminded me of superheroes or villains. ({Jn.10:8} All that came before me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear them.) They seemed to be rowdy and rebellious. ({Isa.30:1} Woe to the rebellious children, saith Jehovah, that take counsel, but not of me; and that make a league, but not of my Spirit, that they may add sin to sin ... {9} For it is a rebellious people, lying children, children that will not hear the law of Jehovah.)

They were holding something, maybe a weapon, in their hands. I think they may have injured another child. ({Mt.24:48} But if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord tarrieth; {49} and shall begin to beat his fellow-servants, and shall eat and drink with the drunken; {50} the lord of that servant shall come in a day when he expecteth not, and in an hour when he knoweth not, {51} and shall cut him asunder, and appoint his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be the weeping and the gnashing of teeth.)

In fear and disturbance I hid in between the racks of textiles/garments and saw them quickly run by me and exit out of the way I came in. (Escaping the sons of perdition who will quickly depart from the way.) I proceeded to leave the market and go outside, stepping onto dessert sand. (Joining the children of Abraham, "as the sands of the sea"...) It was extremely bright and the sunlight was beautiful. I looked up into the sun and it wouldn't harm my eyes (beholding the glory of the Lord). It was a beautiful and glorious sunshine and I felt a sense of rest and peace. (Having entered into the rest through faith.)

From what I remember, I wasn't wearing the Spartan uniform anymore but rather I had been wearing something different. (By the end of the tribulation, the saints will have put off the old man and put on the new man.) It could have been a breastplate (of righteousness) and I believe I was still holding my sword (the Word of God). I looked to my right and saw a mother and her child entering into a form of shelter. (The man-child and Woman; the saints enter into the Arc; the Psalm 91 Passover of the secret place of the Most High.) It could have been a broken-down vehicle that they were entering into (humbleness). In the dream, I had the impression that they were poor and needy. ({James 2:5} Hearken, my beloved brethren; did not God choose them that are poor as to the world [to be] rich in faith, and heirs of the kingdom which he promised to them that love him? {6} But ye have dishonored the poor man. Do not the rich oppress you, and themselves drag you before the judgment-seats? {7} Do not they blaspheme the honorable name by which ye are called?) The dream ends.

Peter's interpretation:

When I woke up, I immediately began to meditate on the dream and acknowledged that it was The Lord's power and strength throughout the battle. I asked the Lord for a word out of the Bible and I thanked Him. (Ps.30:3) O Jehovah, thou hast brought up my soul from Sheol; Thou hast kept me alive, that I should not go down to the pit. (The Lord sure kept me alive!!) My finger landed on "thou hast kept me alive", and it was highlighted in my Bible. Praise God!!

Then I decided to read the entire chapter and to my surprise I found that it applied to my dream.

(Ps.30:5) For his anger is but for a moment; His favor is for a life-time: Weeping may tarry for the night, But joy cometh in the morning. (At the beginning of battle it was dark and I was scared and weak. I had entered the sunlight or morning at the end.) (Ps.30:6) As for me, I said in my prosperity, I shall never be moved. (Nothing could harm me after I had discovered that I was invincible and secured by the Lord.) (Ps.30:10) Hear, O Jehovah, and have mercy upon me: Jehovah, be thou my helper. (The Lord was definitely my helper.)

Ps.30:11 Thou hast turned for me my mourning into dancing; Thou hast loosed my sackcloth, and girded me with gladness; After the battle, I entered into a market of textiles or garments. Textiles are usually used to manufacture garments, therefore, going through this market or warehouse may have represented the process of sanctification or "putting on Christ". At the end of the market, I was no longer wearing the cloak which was scarlet red; (Is.1:18) Though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be white as snow. Furthermore, there was sunlight seeping into this textile market; (1 Jn.1:7) But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanseth us from all sin. After exiting the market, I was in peace and rest. I had taken off the cloak and had put on peace and rest; I had been girded with "gladness". I had put on the fruit of Christ. There are many other verses that indicate to "put on": Rom.13:14 But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to 'fulfil' the lusts thereof. (1 Cor.15:54) But when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall come to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory. (Eph.4:22) that ye put away, as concerning your former manner of life, the old man, that waxeth corrupt after the lusts of deceit; (23) and that ye be renewed in the spirit of your mind, (24) and put on the new man, that after God hath been created in righteousness and holiness of truth.

I asked the Lord for another word: (Pr.22:15) Foolishness is bound up in the heart of a child; But the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. (This represents our chastening Lord driving the foolishness out of us.)

And I asked The Lord again for a further interpretation; my finger fell on Ps.146:7, but I continued to read further. (Ps.146:7) Who executeth justice for the oppressed; Who giveth food to the hungry. Jehovah looseth the prisoners; (He will deliver us from bondage to the old man and feed the spiritual man.)

(8) Jehovah openeth the eyes of the blind; Jehovah raiseth up them that are bowed down; Jehovah loveth the righteous; (9) Jehovah preserveth the sojourners; He upholdeth the fatherless and widow; But the way of the wicked he turneth upside down. (He opened our eyes. We were once married to and fathered by this world and its god but now they are dead to us. We are adopted sons and married to our Lord.) In the sunlight (day), The Lord preserved and protected the child and woman, which can be symbolized by the shelter that they had entered into.)

The king with the spear may have represented carnal wisdom and guidance, since a Spartan's king was the brain of operations. A spear was possessed by King Saul and he turned out to be disobedient and walking in flesh. When that king died, I had nothing to rely on but God. (2 Cor.12:9) And he hath said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my power is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my weaknesses, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

I believe this battle represented my life and those who will fight with me. As I have said above, I got stronger and matured during battle by The Lord's power. In Exodus, Moses fears and lacks confidence to approach Pharaoh, but the Lord reassures him that He will be with him. (Ex. 4:12) Now therefore go, and I will be with thy mouth, and teach thee what thou shalt speak. It's only further into the scriptures it can be seen that Moses transformed into someone with boldness and authority. The flesh is cut off from speaking as we walk in weakness and in faith. As The Lord cuts the throats of the flesh (as in the dream) from speaking, He brings us through sanctification.
