Missy Pollock - 04/11/2012
A couple was ministering to me on Tuesday (4/11/12) concerning something I've been going through for about four years. The husband said he sensed in his spirit that soon things would come to light. Then, last night, the Lord gave me the following dream to encourage me and build my faith. I believe that this dream can be encouraging and faith-building for other members of the body of Christ.
In the dream, my husband (Jesus) was driving to work and I was with him (the Lord doesn't do anything without me; He needs my cooperation). (Missy here represents the bride of Jesus, who is learning to let Him lead and do the work.) There was a car (representing circumstances and situations in my environment, in my life) in front of us with a baseball glove attached to it by about a 6 feet of string (my flesh) on the back bumper. (Getting ahead of the Lord's works.) My husband (Jesus) said that the baseball glove (the hand of God) was his. I said, "No, that's not your glove" (not recognizing God's hand in things).
Then there was another car in front of us with a string attached to it with a baseball glove on a power line (the power of God's kingdom) and the car eventually pulled the string tight to the point that it came off and the glove stayed on the power line (God is using the circumstances in my life to cause me to let go and let God). This same thing happened again (process of transforming me into His image through dying to self and taking up my cross and following Him) with another car and ball glove attached. The next time it happened that when the string was pulled tight it wasn't a glove but a bird attached to the string and it flew away and landed in a tree. (I am the bird in the Spirit, in resurrection, one with the Lord, free from the flesh [the string], resting in the tree from the works of the flesh. Amen. Hallelujah! Praise the Lord!)
Then my husband was driving fast (doing a quick work in my life) and I asked him to slow down (a quick work is hard on the flesh. Amen; it's dying! (1Pe.4:1) ... for he that hath suffered in the flesh hath ceased from sin). He made a comment that the road was a dirt road (an earthly, temporary journey: (2Co.4:18) While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.) and I said that, no, it wasn't. My husband made a turn without even looking and a car almost (Psalm 91) hit us. I told him that that car almost hit us. My husband was annoyed with all my comments (because I wasn't trusting in Him). At some point, I saw that the road really was a dirt road and there were a lot of curves in the road (finally seeing that it is just a temporary journey). My husband made another reckless turn. (This is just my perception in my carnal man. I need to make sure I set my mind on the things that are above and not on the things that are on the earth).
These are the verses the Lord gave me to go with the dream:
(1Ki.12:33)And he went up unto the altar which he had made in Bethel on the fifteenth (rest) day in the eighth (the end of the matter) month, even in the month which he devised of his own heart: and he ordained a feast for the children of Israel and went up unto the altar, to burn incense. (Serving God our own way in the flesh. The wife gave the meaning of the numbers. She said, "Step away from the matter now; it's in God's hands. Rest in all that God has shown you. The end of the matter is at hand. Be patient in spirit!")
(Joe.3:17)So shall ye know that I am Jehovah your god, dwelling in Zion my holy mountain: then shall Jerusalem be holy, and there shall no strangers pass through her any more. We start out serving God in the flesh but through all the trials and tribulations, He takes us through. Eventually, there are no strangers (man in the flesh) in God's Kingdom and His bride.
(Ecc.3:14) I know that, whatsoever God doeth, it shall be for ever: nothing can be put to it, nor anything taken from it; and God hath done it, that men should fear before him.
