In this writing, I share a recent dream I had on 12/27/21. I hesitate to share this because dreams and dream interpretation is not the focus of this website. Yet, what we do in service to YAH has to always be yielded and stand apart from what we think. Therefore, I feel that I should share this dream at this time.
Notice that I used the words, “I feel.” I try as much as possible to limit the use of “I feel” and “I believe” when speaking and writing about the things of YAH. However, I deliberately used them in this writing because I don’t want to give the impression that anything that I write below is a direct message from YAH.
Also, I don’t know for certain that the interpretation of the dream that I share below is the correct one. What I write is completely open to be judged as to whether it is of YAH or not.
I don’t dream often, and even less often do I have dreams like this one. Dreams like what, you may ask.
I’m speaking of the rare (I mean rare) occasions where the events of a dream seem so real that I wake up with very real emotions. In the past, I have awakened from dreams crying in travail or intercession with tears in my eyes. Again, it has been quite rare that I have had such dreams.
I have learned to not discount this type of dream where I awaken with that adrenaline feeling of fight or flight. This is because I have noticed over the years that such dreams usually manifest to some degree in this physical realm.
Even after praying for different outcomes, some, if not all aspects have occurred. What I have found, though, is that YAH does answer prayer. He is willing to indeed preserve those prayed for amid dreams coming to pass.
…The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much. Elias was a man subject to like passions as we are, and he prayed earnestly that it might not rain: and it rained not on the earth by the space of three years and six months. And he prayed again, and the heaven gave rain, and the earth brought forth her fruit.James 5:16-18
The course of what is to happen on earth is first set in the heavens and is often influenced by the free-will, out-of-Yah’s-will choices of mankind.
Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.Matthew 6:10
But those under the umbrella of prayer, along with their choices made during these events are preserved.
I’m thinking of Abraham, Lot and Sodom. The course was set in heaven. Sodom and Gomorrah were to be destroyed because of the people’s free-will, out-of-YAH’s-will choices on earth. Yet, Lot, his whole household, and potentially others had the opportunity to be preserved.
Lot and his family clearly had some issues. His wife looked back and was destroyed. Ultimately, only Lot and his daughters survived. He lost everything he had worked so hard to gain in Sodom. But he made it out alive.
No doubt, righteous Abraham’s intercession on Lot’s behalf and for others in Sodom carried weight with YAH. However, the people themselves had to choose to separate from wickedness by their own free-will choice.
The course was set in heaven for the great flood of Noah’s day. Yet, YAH preserved Noah and his family in the midst of judgment. Noah and his family had to endure unpleasantness for a season.
It had to be quite stinky on that ark with all those animals. There was no sunshine for 40 days. The unknown was happening on the outside all around them.
Noah probably lost great material gain to the flood waters. Yet, though Noah and his family lost everything left behind on the outside of the ark, they escaped on the inside with their lives.
Based on my experience with this type of dream, I believe that the course also has been set in heaven. Yet, I know that YAH desires to preserve those under the umbrella of righteous obedience (Noah) and under the umbrella of righteous intercession (Lot).
When will this dream come to pass? I do not know. I can only say that I believe that it is sooner than we think that such an incredible thing could even possibly happen on earth.
I believe that there is more to this dream than what I remembered when I woke up. Here is what I do remember.
I woke up from this dream with the very, very strong feeling or sense of fear and terror. I don’t think that I was fully awake, but in a half dream, half awake state, because I fell back asleep almost right away (I think).
Before doing so, in that half awake state when I had that rush of fear and terror literally coursing through my body, immediately, I mean immediately (when my consciousness caught up to what was happening), the Word of YAH poured out of my spirit and I began to rebuke fear.
This is difficult to explain how this happened. It’s like once my conscious (soul) part of me caught up and caught on to what was happening, my ruach took over and began to fight off fear from coming to me and setting up shop. My ruach used the Word of YAH as a weapon. One important point is that I had to consciously reject fear and not come into agreement with fear’s attempt to take over me (my being).
This is one reason that it’s so important to ferociously feed on YAH’s living Word. Turn off the TV and other media and let’s get into the Word daily. We must equip our ruach with the weapon of YAH’s Word to be able to stave off the enemy.
This is how the Messiah overcame the temptations of the devil. All three temptations were successfully vanquished by the sword of the Ruach, the word of YAHUAH.
And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Ruach, which is the word of Elohim:Ephesians 6:17
The Messiah did not veer from this tried, true and battle tested weapon of spiritual warfare. His Word weapon was whet with “It is written…” The tempter had no comeback for the Word of YAHUAH and he had to leave him.
Back to the Dream
I had to consciously choose YAH’s light over the darkness of fear. Paul said that our weapons are not natural and fleshly.
For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through Elohim to the pulling down of strong holds;)2 Corinthians 10:3-4
Once I rejected darkness, my inner man (ruach/spirit) fought off the attack. I don’t know if I spoke the Word out loud or in my mind. But after I did, I went back to sleep. The battle was won. YAH has given me the victory and I thank Him.
What induced fear in this dream? I remember only what I believe was the end of the dream. The little that I can recall is enough to get the message that I believe that YAH wants to communicate to any who reads this writing. Here is what I remember.
I was not alone. I got the sense that I was with a group or at least with more than one person. Then there was another person. He/she/it (whatever it was) was distinctly not a part of our group. Yet they were not far away. There seemed to be some proximity and even some dialogue/verbal exchange between it (I’ll just call it that) and our group.
Now, this is the part that caused me to experience fear. Suddenly, or maybe gradually, this person began to morph and change right before our eyes. At first, we could not believe what we were seeing. We were stunned. It did not register to our minds/brains that such a thing is possible.
It’s like when we used to watch certain movies and end up yelling at the characters to run and get out because they were just standing there looking at danger. They were frozen with disbelief at what they saw. Well, that’s how we were in the dream.
Maybe our minds were thinking that whatever was happening to this person would stop and they would go back to normal. But it didn’t and they didn’t. They kept metamorphizing and what they became was grotesque and darkened. They could not be recognized as human anymore. I think (not sure of this) that they even grew bigger in size.
Yet, we in our group, were still near this thing, still very stunned at what we saw. The change in this person did not seem to take very long.
When it was done changing, there seemed to be a pause when we and it were just standing there looking at each other. Maybe it was in disbelief itself at what had just happened to it.
Another thing is that even though this thing did not overtly look like a serpent, I could sense (I don’t know how) that there was a serpentine nature about it. This is even though it was upright like a person would be.
Next, after the pause, we instantly became aware that this thing will want to harm us. The appearance of it was a clue, but there was something deeper within us that just knew to get away from this thing. When we realized this, when our thinking/mind caught up to what had just happened before our eyes, we knew we had to get away.
That’s when the adrenaline kicked in. Next, somehow, we ended up inside a house, room or structure. I remember yelling to the group, “Shut the door!” I distinctly remember that the door was shut and that I leaned my back against it. But I can’t recall who actually shut the door.
In our humanness, I and all who were inside were terrified, utterly terrified at what was on the other side of that door. I need to emphasize the emotion felt in the dream. We were really horrified! We had never seen anything like that! The fear of the unknown was thick in that room.
Yet, I distinctly remember that even though we were terrified of that thing on the other side of the door, it did not bang on the door. Nor did it try to knock the door down. We did not hear anything going on outside the door. But we knew, just knew, it was out there and potentially others like it. So, even though it did not try to get in, we remained terrified and horrified. And that’s when I woke up with that fight or flight feeling of terror and fear.
Here is what I believe (another believe statement) a possible interpretation of this dream is. I believe that there is a message to others as well as to myself.
If I could give a title to this interpretation, it would be:
Get Ready: YAHUAH Elohim Is about to Shut the Door.
As incredible as the scene of that person morphing into creature, I believe that was not the most important detail of this dream to focus on. Rather, it is the door that should be paid the most attention to.
I know that it is unfathomable to think about, but mankind will deal with hitherto unknown creatures on this earth. And like the creature in this dream, these things will not be friendly.
Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.Luke 21:26
I believe that the shelter in this dream was ordained, sustained, and protected by YAH. I believe that He was the one who shut the door, not one of us humans. Referring back to Noah, this is in line with what happened in the flood.
And they that went in, went in male and female of all flesh, as Elohim had commanded him: and YAHUAH shut him in.Genesis 7:16
Noah did not shut the door to the ark; YAHUAH did. Once He shut the door of the ark, there was no way for anyone or anything to come inside to safety or to harm Noah and his family. In this dream, I believe that YAHUAH prevented and restrained the creature(s) (could have been more out there) from entering our shelter. It is only when He seals a door is the restraint against unauthorized entry enacted.
When once the master of the house is risen up, and hath shut to the door, and ye begin to stand without, and to knock at the door, saying, Master, Master, open unto us; and he shall answer and say unto you, I know you not whence ye are:Luke 13:25
Any shelter and doors built with self-will apart from YAHUAH’s way are no match for soon-coming evil.
A Song of degrees for Solomon. Except YAHUAH build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except YAHUAH keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain.Psalms 127:1
YAH’s house of safety is built upon the blueprint of His righteous Torah and the blood of YAHUSHA the Messiah. He is not obligated to protect structures not built according to His instructions (Torah means instructions). He is not obligated to stand guard over the doors of shelters erected in the neighborhood called the world. Remember Israel, Ai and Achan?
I believe that this dream is a message to us all to GET READY! YAHUAH is about to SHUT THE DOOR! There were at least two groups in this dream. Likewise, we already see that groups are being formed in the world. The separation began years ago and is accelerating. We must prepare now by building shelters on the solid Rock and with the chief cornerstone.
Not every one that saith unto me, Master, Master, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Master, Master, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity. Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.Matthew 7:21-25
We must seek now to abide in shelters of righteousness. So that when the time comes for YAH to shut the door, we will be ready and not caught outside in the world, the territory of the creature that I saw in this dream. We will be like the wise virgins and not the foolish ones (another instance of a door in Scripture).
And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut.Matthew 25:10
Each of us has to examine ourselves to see if we are “building” (if you will) shelters according to YAH’s instructions, according to His righteous blueprint.
I mentioned Lot earlier. A door was also prominent in his experience. Lot, in his own words and strength, was no match for the evil outside his door. Had it not been for the restraint of the messengers of YAH, Lot would have been harmed.
YAH remembered Lot because of Abraham’s prayers. If we are not like Lot ourselves, we certainly know some Lots. Some of us know a lot of Lots. They have pitched their tents (flimsy shelters) toward the world.
Abram dwelled in the land of Canaan, and Lot dwelled in the cities of the plain, and pitched his tent toward Sodom.Genesis 13:12
We cannot cease to pray for the Lots that YAH lays on our heart. We pray that they will wake up and discern the time before it is too late.
As in Lot’s day so in the latter days. Manmade defense against gross darkness will be useless. Manmade bunkers and shelters alone will not hold up against the creatures to come. Now is the time to build houses made without hands and to build them according to YAH’s plan—according to righteousness. Now, is the time to GET READY because YAH is about to shut the door!
I am now reminded of another door in Scripture. The Children of Israel were behind their doors in Goshen and the Egyptians were behind their doors.
And they shall take of the blood, and strike it on the two side posts and on the upper door post of the houses, wherein they shall eat it.Exodus 12:7
YAH shut the doors of Israel’s dwellings, sealing them with blood, because they had done according to His instructions. They believed YAH and put the blood over their doorposts exactly as He told them. Therefore, He restrained the destroyer from opening and entering their doors.
The Egyptians’ houses were just as sturdy if not sturdier than the Hebrews’ houses. Yet the destroyer easily went in the Egyptians’ houses and killed their firstborn sons.
If it were not for YAH’s intervention in my dream, that little door that I leaned against would not have prevented that creature from entering. Modern-day underground bunkers are no match for a destroying creature. Destroying creatures are no match for the blood of the Lamb.
One last aspect of the dream to address is the fear and terror that we felt. I believe that YAH wants to say that initial fear is a natural response to other-worldly things that we will see in the future. He knows us.
However, I also believe that He is giving us the message to not give in to fear and to not to let fear find a resting place in our heart. We are to actively resist fear.
To the chief Musician for the sons of Korah, A Song upon Alamoth. Elohim is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea; Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof. Selah. There is a river, the streams whereof shall make glad the city of Elohim, the holy place of the tabernacles of the most High. Elohim is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved: Elohim shall help her, and that right early. The heathen raged, the kingdoms were moved: he uttered his voice, the earth melted. YAHUAH of hosts is with us; the Elohim of Jacob is our refuge. Selah.Psalms 46:1-7
Like I did while dreaming, we resist fear with YAH’s Word. But there is more to resisting fear than just quoting Bible verses at fear. That’s a start, but according to what I saw in this dream, the quoting and standing on Scripture has to be accompanied with our actually knowing the character of our Elohim (not head knowledge alone).
But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of Elohim.Matthew 4:4
YAHUSHA said unto him, It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt YAHUAH thy Elohim.Matthew 4:7
Then saith YAHUSHA unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship YAHUAH thy Elohim, and him only shalt thou serve.Matthew 4:10
With each wielding of His Sword, Yahusha showed that He had intimate knowledge of the Father. When fear and panic is all around us, even more so in the coming days, we must be able to stand, having done all stand, knowing that we know, that our Elohim is all powerful and He is a covenant-keeping Elohim. He protects His Bride, His sheep, those of the House of Israel.
Stay prayerful and abide in righteousness.
