Divine Dreams of Building and Modern Technology
I was given a series of 3 dreams over a 3-night period. In the first dream, I had I was standing in a glass house on the edge of a cliff overlooking a large canyon with land on the other side. There was an older man standing next to me who was a contractor by trade. In the dream I knew that we were supposed to build a bridge across this canyon so that people could migrate to this new territory and develop a city.
I looked at the gentleman next to me and asked him if anyone had ever tried building a bridge before. He replied, "Yes, on many occasions, but the ground has always been too hard for us to break through in order to create a strong foundation for construction." I asked him to show me the equipment they had been using and, to my surprise, he said, "Just this pick axe."
I was shocked! I asked him if he was serious. There was no response, only a look of confusion as if he knew of no other way to work, but through brute force. I began to educate him on the need for modern technology and the need to upgrade their equipment to work smarter instead of harder. I pulled out my cell phone and began making a few calls to bring in heavy machinery to do this work.
The next night I had another dream. My wife and I were sitting in the back seat of my dad's old station wagon we used to get around in as a kid. As my dad was getting into the driver's seat, he handed me a number of gifts, and when I asked what these were for he told me I was to distribute them accordingly.
Immediately, I noticed my grandmother sitting in the passenger's seat of the car. At that moment she turned around and handed me an envelope with $5,000 in it and explained to me that this was my inheritance and it was time for me to manage it. I turned behind me and saw my younger brother sitting in the furthest back seat, and as I began to hand him one of these gifts my father had given me, I woke up.
The third night I had this last dream where I was walking into a large three-story circular sanctuary. The place was packed with many people on every level. I looked across the sanctuary from where I had entered and noticed a family from my childhood seated on the first level. As I approached them, they smiled and gave me a surprising look of confusion. They asked me what I was doing. Taken back, I said, "What do you mean?" The mother responded, saying, "We've all gathered in this place to hear you share your heart." I didn't understand, but reluctantly stepped out onto the empty stage and the dream changed.
Immediately, I was standing over a nuclear reactor and was dressed in white protective hazard clothing to protect me from the elements. There were two other nuclear scientists standing on either side of this reactor operating a piece of machinery that was mining through the nuclear content for something very important. As the machine recoiled from the reactor, it pulled out a large black box. The scientists brought it over to me, and as I began to open it I had this feeling come over me that this was something of the highest importance for people all over the country, and then I woke up.
Interpretation: Church Reformation – Look Beyond Ourselves and Join Together
As I prayed over these dreams it became apparent that God was speaking to me. I've never had three dreams over consecutive nights like this before. God had my complete attention. The Lord was showing me from this first dream that as I was standing inside a glass house, we must live from a place of transparency where we can both see outward and inward. This is in contrast to a typical house with normal walls where you cannot see outward but can only see what's confined inside its walls. God is redirecting the aim of our focus so that we not only concentrate inwardly, but that we look to the people and world around us beyond ourselves.
Now is the time a bridge is built that will make a way for people to cross over into the land of their promise where their potential can thrive. However, it's clear that this feat will not be accomplished by using the existing tool set or modes of operation that generations before us have been accustomed to using. This is because over time the scope of work in God's Kingdom has expanded and God has created advances in Kingdom technology to equip us for this work.
The Spirit of Wisdom and Revelation is now upon the Church. Gone are the days of the pick axe where we operate independently as individuals. Now enter the season of "divine autonomation" – a synergistic partnership between the power of God and the "connected" Body of Christ. Now begins the reformation of the Church where we re-learn how to function as one person, being joined together in accordance with Ephesians 4:16, and our combined efforts are compounded exponentially.
For me, a station wagon has always been more than a mode of transportation, but a reminder of my family. I have very fond memories of travelling with by brothers, mom and dad together in our Oldsmobile station wagon. Our heavenly Father is ready to go and it's time for us to buckle up for this next ride. It's apparent that this next movement will now travel through the vehicle of family and shared generations. Even as the second dream consisted of multiple generations and extended family seated together in that station wagon, God is now moving across our country through the coming together of multi-generational family, even down to the third and fourth generations!
He is gathering together people as gifts to be distributed for the empowerment of others. Each of us have been given a number of gifts – people that God has placed in our lives as He has pleased. We are to manage these gifts as His inheritance that He has given us stewardship over. It was $5,000 that was given to me in the dream, referring to the miracle of multiplication where Jesus fed the 5,000.
The people God has placed in your life are His inheritance, and as we rightly steward the relationships in our lives, there will be multiplication in the form of resources and more people. Today you have been commissioned to manage His inheritance faithfully unto the empowerment of one another. You have been given the 1 Corinthians 10:24 mandate to serve the well-being of others.
Empowering One Another – We Are the Answer to Someone Else's Dream!
In this third dream there were three levels to this sanctuary. God was underscoring to me again the importance of multiple generations, gathering in one place to be joined together. Even as I had spotted a family from my childhood in this dream, God is going to begin reconnecting some of you with family from your youth that will be the very source of encouragement needed to enable you to step onto the platform of your circle of influence and operate from that place in your heart that God has made you passionate about. If He hasn't already started doing this, I encourage you to partner with God's Word on this and seek out some of these people from your life to see what treasure you may rediscover.
T.S. Elliott said, "We shall not cease from exploration, and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time." The power of rediscovering the treasure of past relationships awaits you.
As I pondered the meaning behind why this dreamed changed from this sanctuary to me standing over a nuclear reactor, God reminded me of the process of how nuclear energy is created.
In short, the strongest bonds any element in the earth has are called covalent bonds, which are formed by the sharing of electrons between two atoms. In nuclear "fission," neutrons intentionally collide with these atoms to split their bonds to create heat or energy. God is very intentional in this hour about bringing us together in all types of gatherings all over the country to facilitate an environment where our destinies collide with one another.
This black box brought out from the reactor in that dream was God's empowerment. It is of the highest importance that we empower one another to live to our potential if we are to engage in this movement of another great awakening. We are the answer to someone else's dream! When we "collide" with one another, through relationship built on God's love, it produces a reaction of "splitting off" or "sending out" – meaning that we empower one another to step into the fullness of who we are meant to be. As we allow God to connect us together we will empower one another to rise to our potential. Now is the time we build a bridge into the land of God's promise.
