I wanted to share a dream I had recently, which clearly shows the distinction God is making according to truth, of the reality of the two kingdoms and the powers of each and why, even as we dwell in the midst of in this dimension, with its contradiction, our hope burns bright.
My dream was about S8W. The saints were going about speaking the truth in love, sharing Christ, stewarding the grace of God with others who were not in covenant. It was like looking down upon this particular scene and event. Some were hearing and responding in faith, but the majority, were saying they were holding out for â€śtheir promised oneâ€ť.
I could also see the antichrist spirit walking among them. He was in bodily form as a man, dressed in a fine black suit. And as he would interact with the people, of which many flocked to him to embrace him, they would suddenly become hideous looking creatures, sprouting horns on their heads, distorted features, hideous faces (as would look by exposure to nuclear chemicals...). Of course, the people were unaware of their transformation, because it was spiritual, which is why I could see it.
S8W continued to speak truth. Through the overhead speaker system, I could hear Teacher Maria singing. She had a beautiful voice, which could be heard far and wide. And on a very long table toward the front of this scene were many â€śrecordings and doxology CDs available to the public.
>>>Of course, we understand that these doxologies have to do with our spiritual sacrifices, which we offer daily through our priesthood, and which are acceptable and pleasing to God through Jesus Christ.<<<
Maria came back where I was and Apostle David was, and Brother Earl and some others, and we talked a bit with her as others also continued to evangelize Jesus Christ and His covenant. And then Apostle Eric and Teacher Maria went out together and sang an upbeat duet together, which could be heard far and wide through the amplified PA and speaker system.
The antichrist man continued to walk among the people, and because of their false hope, they trusted in his words, as he was trying to keep them from conforming to the preaching of S8W, with those who were preaching Christ. And it continued to happen, that every time someone would go up to him and touch him, when they would turn to walk away, I could see their immediate transformation into ugly creatures (representing the ugliness of sin/contrariness in their souls).
>>>We can see how those who join themselves to false teachings embrace a counterfeit of Christ, and being yoked to the kingdom of darkness, thereby reflect the ugliness and hideousness of their father the devil (as Jesus said to the unbelieving Jews in John chapter 8) in their soul.<<<
I remember also one young man, who was nearly ready to accept the true testimony of Jesus Christ, but then at the last, even though I pleaded with him, â€śDon't go, that is not the way of truth, but errorâ€ť, he said to me, â€śI'll take my chancesâ€ť, and walked away to go and find the one the many will look to as their saviour, the one who will promise them resolution of their circumstances and world peace.
>>>Jesus made it clear that those who refuse to embrace His doctrine (truth) were children of the devil, who could not understand His words because there is no truth in the devil, and that he is a liar, and the father of lies. And He said,
"He that is of God hears God's words: you therefore hear them not, because you are not of God." (Jn 8:40-47)
John also confirmed this in his epislte (1Jn 3:7-9):
"Little children, let no man deceie you: he that does righteousness IS righteous, even as He is righteous. (8) He that commits sin (which is to walk contrary to the government, truth, and Spirit of Christ) is of the devil; for the devil sinned from the beginning (rebelling against God, desiring his own way over God's). (9) Whosoever is born of God does not commit sin; for his seed remains in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God. (10) In this are the children of God manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever does not righteousnes is not of God".<<<
Praise God for our deliverer, Jesus Christ, who has brought us grace and truth for our faith, for those who embrace the tokens of Christ, embrace the powers of God unto salvation.
Yours in Christ,
