Cut Off the Mind of the Flesh

Eve Brast - 06/29/2012
(David's notes in red)

I had a dream this morning that really concerns me. I don't ever have violent, bloody dreams like this! I prayed Philippians 4:7, just like I do every night over myself and for my brethren. I fell asleep to the book of Hebrews on my iPod, too. When I woke up, I was thinking about what this dream could mean. I will try to tell all the things I can remember from it.

I dreamed that I was standing next to a fireplace on my right that had gone out. My dog, Curtis, was laying on the burned-out coals on his left side, next to my grandmother's Dachsund, Penny. (The dog in us must be sacrificed on the altar of the fiery trial.) Suddenly, a white, plastic lettuce knife that is used to cut heads of lettuce appeared in my right hand. (In real life, a local UBM brother's wife, named Kelly, which means "war-like", had shown me this lettuce knife the last time we had a fellowship at their house. I had never seen a knife like that before and she was showing me how nice they were to cut lettuce with.) Heads of lettuce actually grow on the ground and would represent the earthly mind of flesh. (I heard a dream recently about lettuce heads being people's heads and the key interpretation was pointed out in that dream which was "let us", as a play on words. Self rules in many lives through the mind of flesh. It's a "we will do it, Lord" attitude that must be "war-like" against and cut off with the lettuce knife of the Spirit, the Word of God. In the Spirit, taking down the old life and raising up the new is violent warfare against the self-life, as Jesus said. It is bringing the true Kingdom of God in us and those around us. {Luk.16:15} And he said unto them, Ye are they that justify yourselves in the sight of men; but God knoweth your hearts: for that which is exalted among men is an abomination in the sight of God. {16} The law and the prophets [were] until John: from that time the gospel of the kingdom of God is preached, and every man entereth violently into it.)

Then, in the dream, I fell into a trance (in the spirit) and went over to Curtis and cut his neck with the lettuce knife and saw the blood soak his fur around his neck. Then I moved on to my next target which was a demon-possessed man with a very large head who was addicted to playing violent video games. I hated what he was doing and took the lettuce knife and cut his neck within an inch of severing it completely and stood there watching the blood pool on the ground. His head then slid and twisted off, just hanging by the inch of skin that was left. Then the ugly, green alien-looking demon left his body. It was very angry at me for killing its host! (We have to get rid of the mind of flesh with the sword of the Word, which is also the renewed mind of Christ. {Rom.8:5} For they that are after the flesh mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit. {6} For the mind of the flesh is death; but the mind of the Spirit is life and peace: {7} because the mind of the flesh is enmity against God; for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can it be: {8} and they that are in the flesh cannot please God. {9} But ye are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you. But if any man hath not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.)

I then moved on to my next target which was my mother. But she looked nothing like my mother. She was a small, thin woman with a mushroom-style hairdo that was dirty blonde in color. I also cut her neck all the way through at an angle and her head fell completely off. I then moved on to another target but can't remember those details. {Luk.14:26} If any man cometh unto me, and hateth not his own father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple. [We must hate the soulish life of the mind of the flesh in ourselves and our families.] {27} Whosoever doth not bear his own cross, and come after me, cannot be my disciple. {28} For which of you, desiring to build a tower, doth not first sit down and count the cost, whether he have [wherewith] to complete it? [The house is not complete without the cutting off of the old head.] {29} Lest haply, when he hath laid a foundation, and is not able to finish, all that behold begin to mock him, {30} saying, This man began to build, and was not able to finish. Jesus said everyone has a house but He has no place to lay HIS HEAD. His house must have His head.)

After this, I snapped out of the trance (or came out of the spirit) and was very remorseful when I realized what I had done! I had been watching myself from the inside doing these things but everything about me was taken over and I didn't feel remorse or stop it until I came out of the trance. (When in the Spirit, we fight against the old man in us and others, although we do it guided by wisdom and grace. When in the flesh, we pity the old man and have mercy on him but we must lose our life to gain our life, as Jesus said. " The mind of the flesh is enmity against God". {Gal.5:16} But I say, walk by the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh. {17} For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; for these are contrary the one to the other; that ye may not do the things that ye would.) My 'mother' came back to life as her head reattached itself to her body. I went crying to her and telling her what I had done. (Your mother could represent your flesh. If you don't cut the mind of flesh all the way off, it can grow back. Have no mercy on this enemy of God and your life. But when dealing with it in others, we must be weak to the weak.)

She immediately started announcing to everyone around, including two army soldiers who were shady and dishonest, "I've just done something. I'm the one who did it! " (Those in the flesh will be the Judases of God's people. The flesh often takes credit for what the spiritual man does. The militant enforcers are those who agree with and encourage the flesh to take credit.) (One of them looked like a carnal person I knew but his teeth were all rotten.) She then went over to a tree and started to dig up an idol that looked like a wooden or mummified Frankenstein that was about a foot tall, and a skull, and placed them on a wooden railing. (Frankenstein's monster was the dead man who came back to life through man's evil ingenuity, symbolized by "let us". This is the idol of self.)

Then, as she was still announcing this and claiming responsibility for these actions that I had done, behind me she was skipping and waving a white handkerchief between her index and middle fingers in each hand. (This is self glorifying self. We must humble the flesh or it will destroy the works of God through us because He will not share His glory with the flesh.) When I turned around to look at her following behind me along with the two army soldiers, I saw that she had the lettuce knife in her hand and she was making a stabbing motion at my back, with an ugly face. (The flesh often misuses scripture to attack the spirit man or the righteous, in general.)

I then came back over to the fireplace that had gone out where Curtis was still laying and I was so sad for what I had done to him while in that trance! (Sometimes the flesh in us makes us feel guilty and so we mistakenly have pity on the flesh to ease the suffering and let it live.) I got on my knees and was petting him and crying and trying to see if he was still alive. One of the army men said, "Look, he is still alive". The knife had barely cut his neck and he lifted his head to lick my tears. (Those who side with the flesh want desperately to see the "old you" back.) I then got up and went over to an outdoor pavilion with picnic tables. As I was approaching it, the angry alien-looking demon that had possessed the video game addict was slouching on the railing around the pavilion and glaring at me, full of hatred! My 'mother' and the two shady army men then started to come up with a plan to cover up what I had done. The one who looked like my carnal friend was smiling a rotten-toothed smile as he was saying, "No one will ever find out! " (No one will find out that God, through the spiritual man, cut off the mind of flesh, if the carnal man brings you back under submission. Those who go back into the world are just like it.)

I asked the Father for a verse for what this dream meant and when I put my finger down, I noticed that my Bible was upside down and my finger was on (Luk.17:23 And they shall say to you, Lo, there! or Lo, here! go not away nor follow after them ... (In the context, we are being warned not to follow fleshly men claiming to be the anointed of God.)

I asked for a second verse and my finger was on (1Co.10:28) But if anyone say to you, This hath been offered in sacrifice, eat not, for his sake who showed it, and for conscience ... (We are not to partake of fleshly offerings sacrificed to idols of self.)
