We Will See What the King Will Do

tiara, by Taku, Flickr.comMany years ago, while in the midst of praying into a serious situation, a distinct snapshot picture came to my mind. It was a vision, but I didn’t know it then, not yet having been taught how seeing in the Spirit works.

In the picture, a king was seated on his throne. Next to him sat a beautiful, black-haired young woman, with a simple tiara circling her head. Her hand rested on the king’s arm, and her gaze was fastened on his face. It was a picture of quiet trust and confidence in him.

And I heard the words, “We will see what the King will do.”

The vision, of course, was a picture of King Jesus and His bride. It was also a picture of my relationship with Him. It was a great comfort to me, and it helped me to put the problem I was praying into in a better perspective. Through the days and weeks after that, I repeatedly thought, “I will see what the King will do about this.” Eventually the trial was over. Everybody came out of it OK. Jesus made a way where there was none.

Through the years since then, this vision has continued to live and breathe its truth deep in my spirit. Many times, as I have prayed with others about their desperate situations, I have told them the vision and have encouraged them, “Let’s see what the King will do.” Many of them have also come through their fiery test. The King has acted on their behalf, too.

We live in difficult times, and many in the Body of Christ are experiencing very distressing circumstances. I am praying with several loved ones right now who need the Lord’s miraculous intervention. There is no way out for them, other than His supernatural provision and direction. The ability to fix things through human logic and practical maneuvers has come to an end for them. And after praying with them, I have once again said, “Now we will see what the King will do in this.”

The messes we need help with are not always our own fault. Other people’s actions can create a lot of trouble for us. But even when we have no one to blame but ourselves, the King is still eager to fix our problems for us. He is in the salvage and restoration business.

Some of us have damaged our relationships, our churches, and our personal destinies because we have tried too hard to fix impossible circumstances ourselves, rather than bringing them to the King, Who can fix all things. We’ve been unwilling to wait for Him to work, and have made foolish mistakes from a position of panic, when rest in Him was what He was really after.

The Lord often deliberately takes us to the end of our abilities so that we will lean on Him, much as the young woman leaned on her king’s arm in my vision. He lets us wear ourselves out and do all the screaming, kicking, and crying that we tend to do in our flesh. Then, when there is no more fight left in us, He leads us to the place where we give it all to Him, broken and beat up though it may be.

Isaiah 30 talks about the place God wants to get us to: “Their strength is to sit still” (v. 7), and, “In returning and rest shall you be saved; in quietness and in confidence shall be your strength” (v. 15).

If you’re fighting one of those no-way-out, beating-my-head-against-a-wall types of battles, the King wants you to come to Him. Sit down next to Him as His Beloved. Put your hand confidingly on His arm, and fasten your gaze on Him. Remind yourself, “I will see what the King will do for me in this impossible situation.” He will refresh you and give you new expectation for better things to come. He may open your eyes to a solution you had not thought of before, or He may put things in motion to clear up the problem without you having to do a thing. However He chooses to do it, He will certainly act on your behalf, for nothing is too hard for the King.

A Dream Interpretation Exercise — Follow-up (Part 3)

Imagem739-1Many thanks to all of you who took the time to participate in the dream exercise. Whether you commented here at the blog, or sent me an e-mail, I really appreciate all the input, and I hope you had a good time trying your hand at dream interpreting. If you haven’t had a chance to add your input yet, please feel free to still do so. Your thoughts are most welcome!

One lady wrote to ask more into the details, in case I had left anything out. I’m so glad she did. I had missed telling details about the box containing the treasure. (It was silver in color, and it was a small, rectangular box.) I have since added those details and my interpretation of one of them into the first two parts of this exercise.

A few more tips on dream interpretation should be mentioned:

1.)  Dream interpretation comes from the Lord. I have said it before, but it’s important to keep reminding ourselves that dream interpretation is not about following a method and assigning meanings to symbols. We should ask Him to reveal both the overall message and understanding of details to us.

Sometimes you will strongly sense that He is dropping certain elements of dream understanding into your heart. He may even speak quite clearly to you. It is exciting when He does that!

At other times, He doesn’t speak as succinctly. The interpretation comes slowly, over time, and you may start out with, “I think this might mean such-and-such.” When you return to a dream weeks or months later, you may notice that the same idea you had at first about a detail’s meaning still persists. That is a good indicator that it really was from the Lord the first time around.

Sometimes, months down the road, your understanding changes from what it was initially — because life events have now unfolded which make the dream clearer, or because God drops the true interpretation into your heart by revelation at the later date. Either way, He is still directing the adjusted interpretation.

2.)  Make sure that the rest of the dream fits with the meaning you have attributed to a symbol. If the rest of the dream doesn’t fit, or if the meaning you have given to an object contradicts other details showing up in the dream, then you are probably not interpreting that symbol correctly. Some suggestions people volunteered about what various details in my dream could mean were entirely logical, and I could see how they drew those conclusions. However, they didn’t fit with the other details presented. A contradiction showed up.

3.)  Be careful not to go beyond what the dream says. This is particularly important when assisting others in interpreting their dreams. If something isn’t showing up in the dream, don’t imagine it into the dream. With your own dreams, God may continue, over time, to speak additional information to you, which goes beyond the scope of the dream, but until He does so, don’t run ahead of Him in your interpretation.

If you are interpreting someone else’s dream, stick with the details he or she has. Ask questions about the details to draw out information the person may have forgotten to share, but don’t add to what he saw in his dream.

4.)  Details of what was not showing up in a dream can be as important as details of what was showing up. For instance, my dream started out in a basement. But there were no details about the appearance of the basement — no focus on the walls or furnishings. It was all about the action that took place there. That tells me that the condition of the basement itself was not what the dream was about.

5.)  If you are listening to someone else’s dream, don’t insist on your interpretation overriding that of the dreamer’s. Remember that the dreamer might understand the symbols in a different way than you do, because each of us has a unique dream language between us and the Lord. Some symbols are fairly universal to all of us, especially if they are seen clearly throughout the Bible. The meanings of other symbols can vary widely from person to person. So, don’t be surprised if the dreamer interprets his dream somewhat differently than you would. A third-party interpreter is there to assist and enhance the understanding of the dream, not to come up with all the answers for the dreamer.

Thanks again for participating in this dream exercise! Would you like to learn lots more about dream interpretation? Of all the dream interpretation teachers, John Paul Jackson was my favorite. I have put together a playlist for you at my YouTube channel of many hours of John Paul’s teaching on dreams and actual interpretations that he did.

I found that my ability to interpret my own dreams increased by listening in as he did it. I also put together a small dream dictionary for my personal use, based on the dreams he interpreted in those videos. It is my best go-to dream dictionary reference at this time. (I cannot share that dictionary with you, but you could develop one for yourself.)

Dream Exercise (Part 2)     

A Dream Interpretation Exercise (Part 2)

Imagem739-1In the last post, I shared a dream, and asked you to take time to seek God for the interpretation of it. If you haven’t already done that, please take time to read the dream and pray for revelation of its meaning before continuing.

I stated that this is a dream for me personally, but it also has a more universal message. Let’s concern ourselves with the general message.

The dream is a story of spiritual warfare, with the bad man portraying the devil and his forces. It is not literally about the International House of Prayer in Kansas City. The setting is a large international house of prayer to show that spiritual warfare is common to all of us. And spiritual warfare involves prayer.

Scene 1:

The struggle taking place in the basement indicates to me spiritual warfare on a foundational level. Because I am alone with the bad man, it also tells me that this portion of the dream is about individual spiritual warfare.

Handguns tell me that I was engaged in a serious struggle — life and death, even.

Although I was unable to overcome at first, the enemy did not get my treasure. As I thought on this, I was persistently reminded of 2 Corinthians 4:5-7:

For we do not preach ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord …. For God, Who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, has shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.

The metal box was silver in color. In the Bible, silver often symbolizes redemption. It can also mean the knowledge of God or knowledge from God (see Proverbs 2:3, 4; 3:13, 14; 16:16). The knowledge of God — knowing Him for Who He is — is a fitting container for Jesus, the Treasure.

An Application: Our most precious treasure is “Christ in you, the hope of glory” (Colossians 1:27). The enemy wants to steal our intimate relationship with the Lord Jesus and all that goes with knowing Him. Our relationship with Jesus is our foundation for all else in our Christian life. Sometimes we are not completely victorious in our faith, even getting beat up here and there, but we must hold onto our treasure at all costs. (Indeed, the Lord will help us to do this. He is ever mindful of keeping us. He will not allow the enemy to snatch us from Him.)

Eventually, I was able to completely overcome the enemy who was assailing me. This speaks of the ongoing spiritual warfare in which we engage. We learn to become seasoned warriors, who grow ever stronger as we abide in Christ, so that eventually, we win the war.

Scene 2:

The transition between Scenes 1 and 2 is where I run up the stairs. Going upstairs can mean promotion, or going to another level. In this dream, I felt that the Lord brought “expansion” to mind in connection with the stairs. The story is going to a higher level, or “expanding” beyond talking about individual spiritual warfare to corporate warfare. The focus has shifted.

I tell the security guards that the bad man locked in the basement has already killed five people from the house of prayer. “Five” is generally accepted as the number of grace and/or service (because of the five-fold ministry gifts of service provided to the Church to perfect (equip) the saints (Ephesians 4:11, 12).

Some applications:

  1. John 10:10 tells us that the devil’s purpose is to kill, steal, and destroy. (He wanted to kill me and steal my treasure, and he had killed five people.)
  2. The devil is out to stop the five-fold work of equipping the Church to effectively carry out our mission.
  3. He is also out to stop prayer. (The killings had taken place at the house of prayer.) One of the ways he does that is by killing our perception of God’s grace (“5” = “grace”), so that we become so shame-filled that we feel unworthy to pray, or worry that because we are not perfect, God won’t answer us.

The security guards symbolize prophetic intercessors — the “watchmen on the walls,” in biblical terminology. This is indicated by what their job function is and where they work — the house of prayer.

Uniform color: The color of the guards’ uniforms is significant. When colors stand out in dreams, it usually means they are an important detail.

Blue, in my dreams, usually has to do with the prophetic gifts. But their uniforms are specifically baby blue, indicating that they are as yet inexperienced or immature in their role. They have been equipped with rifles and with the training they would need to use them, but they are afraid — because they have never had to handle this level of security problem before.

An application: Intercessors, like security guards, are official protectors — hence, they possess authority. Their authority is in the prophetic realm (indicated by the blue uniforms) and it is authority wielded through prayer. By listening to the Lord and receiving prophetic revelation from Him, intercessors are able to protect others by praying into what God shows them. This can involve praying for individuals, all the way up to international affairs.

Seeing the security guards’  fear, I go for help. Calling 911 indicates to me a calling out in prayer for help from the Lord for reinforcements.

I asked the Lord why, in the first part of the dream, handguns were involved, but in the second part, the security guards had rifles. Handguns indicate personal, up-close warfare. But the security guards, representing prophetic intercessors, had weapons for dealing with a situation from a sharpshooter’s perspective. As intercessors, we deal with events in others’ lives from afar (through prayer).

Summary application: God has already fully equipped us and given us His authority to carry on the warfare of the Kingdom successfully. He has given us the Holy Spirit and the sword of the Spirit (His Word) to accomplish our task. Just as the security guards had been trained in the use of their guns, we should become adept in using the Word of God and whatever the Spirit reveals to us to successfully take down the plans of the devil. We should not tremble or hesitate. The authority of heaven backs us up.

The reality is, though, that it takes time for us to become seasoned. In the first scene of the dream, I failed to completely overcome at first, but later on succeeded. The security guards in the second part of the dream felt their inexperience, and needed help from reinforcements. I think there are two messages simultaneously showing up here:

  1. We really do need to recognize that we have been fully equipped and can overcome.
  2. God is available to back us up. We can call upon Him to send us help from heaven, so that we can entirely win our battles.

Was this dream and its interpretation of any help to you? How did you do, as you practiced interpreting it? Do you have any additional insights? Leave them as a comment. I have not covered every detail, and your input may further help me to understand my dream.

A Dream Interpretation Exercise

Imagem739-1Over time, I have written quite a bit about dreams and their interpretations here at Out of the Fire. Some dreams are very literal and to the point. Little interpretation is needed, because we immediately understand their meanings. However, many dreams are symbolic, and therefore not very useful in their raw form. We need to interpret them and then be able to apply the interpretation, in order to get the maximum benefit from them.

In Genesis 41, we read of Joseph interpreting Pharaoh’s dreams of the fat and lean cattle and the plump and blighted heads of grain. The story reveals three sequential parts of hearing from the Lord through dreams:

  1. Pharaoh tells Joseph the actual dream – vs. 17-24
  2. Joseph tells Pharaoh what the dream represents and who it concerns, which is the interpretation – vs. 25-32
  3. Finally, Joseph suggests to Pharaoh an appropriate response to the dream, which is the application. – vs. 33-36.

The application lets us know more than what the symbols mean. It often answers the question, “So, what do I do about it?” Interpretation can be difficult, but application is by far the most challenging part of understanding our dreams.

We need the Lord for all three parts: He is the Originator of the dream, He is the only One Who can give us the correct interpretation, and we also receive the application as revelation from Him. Dreams are communion between the Spirit of God and our spirit. Therefore, our intellect, which is part of our soul (not our spirit) is incapable of correctly understanding a dream to its fullest extent. If we try to figure out our dreams by our intellect, we will make grave mistakes.

When Pharaoh said to Joseph, “I am told you can understand a dream to interpret it,” Joseph replied, “It is not in me. God shall give Pharaoh an answer of peace” (vs. 15, 16). In other words, Joseph knew he must depend upon God, rather than any mental abilities, logic, or talents he possessed, to obtain correct understanding of the dream.

I’d like to offer those of you who are interested in understanding dreams an opportunity to walk through one of my recent dreams with me. We will do this in two parts. In this post, I’ll tell you the dream — which is the raw data, the facts.

Dreams can have several layers of meaning or application, and I believe this one is personal to me, but also has a universal application. See if you can find that general meaning.

The dream:

I was in a basement room at the International House of Prayer in Kansas City. I was holding a small, rectangular, silver-colored metal box. In it was a treasure. An evil-looking man attacked me, trying to take my treasure. I scuffled with him once, getting beat up in the process, and my attacker overcame me. But although I was not able to prevail against the man, I was still able to hang onto my treasure.

A little later on, the evil man attacked me again, in an effort to steal my treasure. We both had handguns. I don’t remember any actual shooting going on, but we did a lot of physical grappling in the course of the struggle. This time, I completely overcame him. I managed to lock him in the basement room, and then I escaped.

I ran up a set of stairs, and at the top, I immediately saw three security guards (one woman and two men) who worked for the house of prayer. They were dressed in baby blue, jumpsuit uniforms.

I told them that a man who had killed five people in the past at the house of prayer was downstairs, armed, locked in a room.

Although the security guards carried rifles, I could see that they were very afraid about having to deal with this. So, I asked the woman guard, who was at the top of the stairs, if she would like me to call 911 to get the police, and she said yes.

I went to a nearby office to get access to a telephone, and the dream ended with me calling 911. As I was making the call, I felt frustrated that the security guards had not been able to take care of the situation. I was concerned that the bad guy might escape through a basement window, because dealing with him was taking too long.

__________________

Now that you’ve read the dream, take time to ponder it. Ask the Lord to show you what the overall message is, and also what the individual symbols speak of. Wait on Him for answers. Let Him apply Scripture to it. Keep coming back to it, asking for revelation.

When you think you have received what the symbols in the dream mean, write them down and keep them for later discussion.

In the next post, I will share with you my interpretations of some of the symbols showing up, and also some applications I see. At that time I invite you to share via a comment whatever God has revealed to you about the dream.

I hope you will have fun with this!

Part 2 — The Interpretation

Living from a Prophetic Perspective (Part 8)

propheticperspectiveI’d like to close this series by mentioning a few extremes which can cause us to become unbalanced or skewed in our prophetic perspective. I sometimes run into enthusiastic people who think everything is prophetic. No, it’s not. Not everything which happens is symbolic; not everything has a spiritual implication. Some things just are what they are, without being a message from God.

More than once, I have been dismayed to see “prophecies” based on sporting events – the Super Bowl or World Series, for instance. Significance is attributed to the teams’ names, the colors they wear, and the numbers on the backs of the star players. Based on the outcome of the game, predictions are made for the coming year. This is weird — very weird — and yet Super Bowl divination seems to be a temptation among prophetic people.

A few years ago, a major bridge collapsed in Minneapolis. For several weeks, prophetic posts flew in all directions about what that event meant in the spirit realm. Can catastrophic events carry spiritual significance? Absolutely! But not all of them do, and sometimes the conclusions people draw from them, especially when prophesying into the future, are coming from their own imaginations.

Some people have come up with prophetic messages based on natural markings on animals which resemble various symbols. Let me just say that a pinto horse bearing a spot which resembles a map of Russia does not mean God is warning of a coming invasion. Horses and cows regularly have markings on their faces resembling lightning bolts. These are not warnings of judgments coming from heaven. That goes for star-shaped markings (not a prophetic sign that an asteroid is going to hit the earth), or patches which resemble numbers. Calling such phenomena prophetic signs is silly.

Don’t try to force the prophetic. In these last days, signs will appear in the heavens, and one day Jesus Himself will be seen coming in the clouds, but don’t try to find spiritual meaning in every cloud or etched on every doorknob.

Don’t follow signs. Follow Jesus. If you follow Him, signs and wonders will accompany you, as you proclaim Him. If you follow signs, you will just get goofy — because your focus will be in the wrong place. You will always need something new to dazzle you more than the last wonder you experienced.

Let’s recap what we’ve talked about in this series. If we want to increase in our ability to view life from God’s vantage point we can do that by:

1.)  Slowing down in prayer and Bible reading, so that we can listen to what God has to say. (“What do You want me to learn from Your Word today, Lord?” “What’s on Your heart today?”)

2.)  Asking for God’s counsel in sticky situations and then waiting for Him to reveal His solutions, rather than forging ahead in our own understanding. (“What would You say or do, if You were in my shoes, Jesus?”)

3.) Asking what is really going on beneath the surface in perplexing events, and what He is up to in the midst of them. (“Lord, why is this REALLY happening, and how do You want to work good out of it?”)

4.)  Listening to our inner peace barometer — receiving guidance through peace or the lack of it. (“Let the peace of God rule in your hearts” — Colossians 3:15.)

5.)  Paying attention to possible divine connections — unlikely people God brings into our lives to speak into us or assist us in some way.

6.)  Noticing repeated pieces of information showing up — through things people say, songs we hear, words or phrases which we zero in on.

7.)  Tuning in to connections God makes in our spirit between bits and pieces of seemingly unrelated information. God will suddenly “connect the dots” between them in our understanding, so that we know what He is up to.

8.)  Paying attention to weaknesses in ourselves, which God brings to light — sometimes in our thoughts, sometimes through other people — so that He can cleanse us of attitudes and wrong perspectives we were not aware we harbored.

9.)  Listening to other people’s perspectives so that the Lord can expand our horizons and show us angles we had not previously considered.

10.)  Listening to others through a 1 Corinthians 13:4-7 filter. Ask God to help you see past surface words to what is behind them. (We then use what He shows us to help bring healing to people’s hearts.)

11.)  Waiting for the Lord to reveal things to us, rather than trying to come up with prophetic revelation by our own effort. (Less is more: go for quality, rather than quantity.)

Here is a link to a wonderful article by Francis Frangipane, which very much ties in with what I have written about in this series — What Does Jesus Say?

Previous — Part 7

Living from a Prophetic Perspective (Part 7)

propheticperspectiveAs you pursue living from a prophetic perspective, you will be surprised by things the Lord pulls up out of your own heart, which you didn’t know were there — fears, insecurities, idolatries, prejudices, attitudes, and offenses you didn’t know you harbored. This is part of the process He uses to propel us higher into His vantage point.

Our natural minds are like muddy streams, full of impurities, and we’ve been living in the murk for so long that we are not even aware of it. The Holy Spirit reveals our weaknesses so that He can clean us up. If we cooperate with Him in the cleansing process, our “stream” becomes crystal clear. We can see the way He sees and hear the way He hears.

As the Lord brings these impurities to our consciousness, rather than resisting His promptings or being horribly ashamed of ourselves, we can simply give them to Him, repent, and let Him fix them. You might pray something like, “Father, I didn’t know that was in me! Please forgive me, and change my heart. Remove any distortion from my thinking which colors how I view life, myself, and others.” As we humble ourselves and ask for His help, He is faithful to make the necessary changes inside of us.

Let the Lord use other people to show you weak areas in your life, too. We all have blind spots about ourselves — but people close to us have no problem seeing where adjustments need to be made. Although it is painful to admit we’re not perfect, having the courage to listen and to be willing to change takes us higher into who we are meant to be. The less we fight it, the faster we get there! Coming into seeing from the Lord’s viewpoint involves discipline, refining, and humbling.

Now, let’s shift gears a bit. Throughout this series, we’ve talked about listening to the Lord in various ways. We can also come up into God’s thinking by learning to listen to people. Listening carefully is a lost art in itself, which we really should attempt to re-cultivate.  But if we are to be truly prophetic people, we must learn to listen at a deeper level, through the ears of the Spirit, to what others are saying.

God always looks past the surface appearance to the heart. We can learn to listen to people’s hearts too, and in doing so, we become like Him.

I am convinced that much of the fragmentation which exists in the Body of Christ stems from jumping to conclusions about what our brothers and sisters are saying, missing the real meaning, and then developing bad opinions and feelings about them based on inaccurate hearing of the intent of their words. If we will make an effort to listen thoughtfully and ask questions when we do not understand one another, we will hear differently. In listening with the ear of the Holy Spirit, we are required to apply the charitable love criteria laid out in 1 Corinthians 13.

Step one of listening to people’s hearts is getting past hearing their outward words in order to understand the motives behind the words. But it must go deeper still. Even wrong motives may be spawned by a cry for help or love which needs to be responded to even more than the motive itself does. A motive is often a symptom of a deeper root which needs to be dealt with. It takes patience and careful probing to get at what is in the heart. But if we will take the time to do it, asking the Lord to give us His ear, God will be able to use us to bring healing to hurting people.

In our next post, we’ll deal with some prophetic perspective “don’ts” and conclude by summarizing the main points of this series.
