I recently had a dream that I was in a Pastor’s house. It appeared old and had walls stained in the darkest wood. Suddenly, I found myself in his daughter’s bathroom. It was in that moment that I realized there was no tissue paper. I desperately gazed around the room in search of something to use .. I noticed a thick shirt that apparently belonged to her. I thought to myself, “I hope she doesn’t get mad, but this is all I have. As the dream continued I was in the living room. I saw a huge window to my left. It covered the entire wall space. There was so much light radiating through the panes that it filled the entire room. The Pastor walked toward me and said, “I don’t know why she’s still sleeping, I told her not to and she’s been asleep since 2:00pm. I knew it was 7 or 8 in the evening and I was ready to go. The Pastor then pointed me toward the door and walked me outside. I was now facing a road and a level piece of land on a hillside filled with parked cars. I could see the side of the house with the huge window. There were two young girls on the hillside getting into their cars. I knew once they left, I could get into mine and leave. There were other people there as well. People young and old. They were all heading to their cars to leave. I am now standing in front of the Pastor. His wife was beside him on a sideline bench sitting. There were others there as well. She had on a black top and sunglasses. Her face had no expression and she looked straight ahead. I was standing close to her and thought to myself, “She doesn’t even acknowledge that I’m here. Can she see me?”
End of Dream
In this old house resides the Sleeping Bride of Christ and The Cleansed Bride of Christ. One is content to stay while the other is ready to go!
A Daughter’s Garment
A daughter of God belongs to the Royal Family of God. -Ephesians 2:19
Her garment is one of gold, she is glorious within. -Psalm 45:13
God first showed me that I am his daughter. He calls us his children. -1 John 3:1
He showed me who I was in him and that I am cleansed with a garment of gold.
Oh, isn’t he good! I am HIS daughter!
The State of the Church
The living room was the place of revelation!
Remember the story of Jesus in the garden of Gethsemane?
Jesus took his disciples to a place called Gethsemane. He told them to stay right there while he went and prayed. He took Peter and two sons of Zebedee along with him. His soul was overwhelmed with sorrow to the point of death. “Stay here and keep watch with me.”
But he found them sleeping when he returned to them after praying. Jesus asked Peter, “couldn’t you keep watch with me for one hour? Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The Spirit is willing but the flesh is weak.”
Jesus goes on to pray two more times and every time he returned to the disciples he found them sleeping.
“Look, the hour has come, and the Son of Man is delivered into the hands of sinners. Rise! Let us Go! Here comes my betrayer!”
God has been warning the church to Wake up! But the church, just like the disciples, have failed to heed the warnings. Wake Up Bride! Open your eyes! You must keep watch and pray!
But this sleeping bride, oh this sleeping bride of Christ. The time has come, the hour has come and your eyes are heavy! You are disillusioned! You have fallen into a disillusioned state!
Rise! Let us go!
The number 7 is the number of completion. The number 8 is the number of new beginnings.
I knew it was 7 or 8 in the evening. I knew it was time to GO!
The cars parked outside represented ministries. Young, new, and old. The people were getting in their cars and leaving. The Lord spoke to me, “It’s time for Ministries that have been parked and waiting to go forth in the earth.”
Rise! Let us Go!
As I looked, I saw an old car that had been restored to its original condition. It was beautiful! This car was being moved from its space. The tall grass that was left along the edges let me know it had been there for a long period of time. I heard the Lord say, “There are Ministries that have been sitting for years, preserved and waiting for their time to go. These Ministries have been restored to their original condition. Now is the time for them to move into their calling and Destiny. I have preserved and restored them. They will be used for my glory!
Rise! Let us Go!
Sleeping Bride, you have been benched!
The sleeping bride has fallen under the influence of the enemy. Her garment black. Her eyes covered with shades. She longer sees what’s right in front of her. She’s been sleeping so long that her eyes are now heavy. She will sit on the sidelines while the Cleansed Bride of Christ moves within the earth.
The time has come for God to separate the cleansed bride from the sleeping bride. It’s time for a new beginning church!
Rise! Let us Go!
The Cleansed Bride has left the building!
