How are you this morning, O dreamer of dreams? Has God revealed something to you in your slumber? Maybe He has and you're not quite sure what it means.
You dreamer you. You have been accused, haven't you? To the dull minded, dreams are just dreams. It's the pepporoni pizza at bedtime, not a move of God over your life.
I don't care if I ever know what they mean. Just to blessed as a dreamer is an indicator. The Hand of God has touched your soul.
He said it would. Some would dream dreams, some would see visions, which are dreams while awake ("Pay attention! What? Are you daydreaming again!"). Your Day is coming my old friend.
It's almost as if the world tries to beat that out of us early in life. They don't understand. They haven't heard.
Joel 2:28-29 - 28 “And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my Spirit on all flesh; your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, and your young men shall see visions. 29 Even on the male and female servants in those days I will pour out my Spirit."
Peter said in Acts 2 that this was being fulfilled during the great day of Pentecost. The Spirit was being poured out!
It is poured out upon you. You know that right? It's "AFTERWARD".
We are living "in those days".
Dreamer. Visionary. Prophesier.
Ladies, have the menfolk told you to be quiet and just sit there? They are wrong.
Men, do you think it unmanly to share your dreams and visions? Man up and be what a real man is.
Too many chickenhearts across the board. The boat gets a little filled with water and you stop baling and bale OUT! Sometimes more than once. For some of you it is your modus operandi. It's what you do. You have become a career baler. Step aside! The Church has always needed stickers, not balers.
Thank God He brings those dreams, no matter how far off they are in the past, to fruition in His time. Good things come to the dreamer who has never abandoned hope in Christ!
Here is what I see within reach. An army. An army of young men and women who are discovering their call and purpose. Young people who are not willing to sit in the pews and grow into old pew sitters! Young people who believe they have heard form God and are willing to roll up their sleeves and get to doing God's work! No reward other than the joy of knowing it is all being done for Him!
I just revealed my dream AND my vision. God has showed me this. I have moved from the visions to the dreams. Yes, I am now the old man dreaming dreams of the young men and women having visions and prophesying. I however, have the heart of a much younger man, and the soul of determination to see God's work completed.
It is close. Are you in or out? Are you just playing the game called Churchopoly? Go ahead, work your little plan driven more by purpose than of God. Scheme your schemes. Go to rally's. They will all fail. All of them. Today's plan in the flesh is tomorrow's failure in the flesh.
Me? I want to be in the stream of the Spirit of God being poured out.
Come on dreamers. Visionaries. Prophesiers. Don't be shy. Work it out. Hammer it out. Bale that boat and make it float.
It's coming. All eyes will witness it. Set the barn on fire! They will come from miles just to watch it burn!
Keepin' it Real,
