In January 2021, I had a dream that began inside a large house with movers moving things out. A guy picked up a fish tank and began to put his hand in the tank moving things around. I said, “Be careful, there’s a big black spider right underneath where your hand is.” About that time, his hand touched the spider. That spider seemed as if it was not moved by the touch. It looked like it was fake, but I knew it was real. The spider, now much bigger in size, then appears in a large round glass tank attached to the side of the house. This house sat on top of a mountain. The edge of the tank was at the edge of the mountain. There were people in the tank as well including my neighbor and her dog. As I am standing in the house, I could see through the glass windows that the spider was jumping all around the edge of the tank, trying to get out. My neighbor’s dog jumped up out of the tank over the edge to its death. Then followed my neighbor. I’m thinking to myself, “No! Do not be afraid of the spider! It cannot harm you!” After my neighbor, then another person jumped and another until no one was left in the tank but the spider.
Then the dream shifts to me being downstairs right outside the house. It was dark out. I met a woman at a table for dinner. I asked if she knew what was going on upstairs? She replied, “no”. Then, I look over and see men walking around talking like normal. I wondered if the men knew about the spider and what was going on upstairs. I felt as though they didn’t because of the way they were talking back and forth with each other. I completed my dinner with the woman I had met at the table. We shared information with one another, and I knew it was a great conversation. I got up and started walking on.
The HOUSE represents the Church. We are living in a dark time where evil is running rampant upon the earth. Why? What has caused such evil to operate? The man in the dream is a helper being used to move things out of the church. The fish tank is the place where God’s people are. As the people were being moved, the hand of this gentlemen could not get a handle on the spirit that has
being operating within the church. The bible states in Luke 11:24-26 that “When an impure spirit comes out of a person, it goes through arid places seeking rest and does not find it. Then it says, ‘I will return to the house I left. When it arrives, it finds the house swept clean and put in order. Then it goes and takes seven other spirits more wicked than itself. And they go in and live there. And the final condition of that person is worse than the first.” The Bible also lets us know that the spider SKILLFULLY grasps with its hands, and it is in kings’ palaces. -Proverbs 30:28. This spirit doesn’t give up easily. It holds on and hangs out in the residence of the king, The CHURCH! This spirit has grown and is wreaking havoc upon the people.
Can a spider really cause death? A black widow bite very rarely harms a human to the point of death. So, what is the purpose of this spirit? The people in the larger tank were jumping out over the edge, causing themselves to die. Was it a bite? No, they were afraid! The fear of the black widow caused them to irrationally think and make unwise decisions. God hasn’t given us a spirit of fear, but one of power, love, and a sound mind. – 2 Timothy 1:7
Fear will make your mind go crazy! Fear will make you believe the lies of the enemy! The truth is we have all power and authority over this spirit according to Luke 10:19. It can’t even harm us let alone cause death! Satan has used this spirit in many ways in the body of Christ and it’s time for it to stop!
The church must unify and come together just the woman and I at the end of the dream. The woman represents the church and we shared information just like I am here to help defeat the enemy. We have to come into agreement like a mighty army and fight this evil wickedness running wild in the earth! We have sat back far too long and allowed the works of the enemy to destroy us within.
You might ask the question,“how do we fight?” Ephesians 6:11-13 Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore, put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.
This my friend is the answer, its called spiritual warfare. You take your fight in the heavenly realm! Decreeing and declaring the word of God! Your foot is bigger than that spider so put him under your feet and squash him out!
Be encouraged! God has exposed the tricks of the enemy and given the church the strategy to defeat him! So let’s put our armor on and get to work!
