I awoke from a dream this morning that I would like to share with you. It was a dream about a major storm coming. I especially remember the severity of the darkness and the swirling of the cloud movement, closing in quickly over the land, and the urgency I felt as we hurried to finish before the storm...and crying out, âLet's go!â
In another part in my dream, I remember large mounds (hills) of cooked, seasoned meat (ground hamburger on the right hand and on the left, where the hungry had come to eat. I also remember saying something like.......... âThis is what you need; this is good for your soulâ.
Then during prayer this morning, this word came forth:
âGod poureth in the oil and the wine, which restoreth our soul.â
whereas Psalm 104:15 says:
âwine that maketh glad the heart of man,
and oil to make his face to shine,
and bread which strengtheneth man's heart.â
And I recalled something from Joel, so I turned there-- (Joel 2:1,2)
(vs 1) âBlow ye the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in my holy mountain: let all the inhabitants of the land tremble: for the day of the Lord cometh, for it is nigh at hand.â
(I thought of the storm in my dream, especially when reading about the darkness in the next verse)
(vs 2) âA day of darkness and of gloominess, a day of clouds and of thick darkness, as the morning spread upon the mountains: a great people and a strong; there hath not been ever the like, neither shall be any more after itâ
And Zec 9:17 âFor how great is his goodness, and how great is his beauty! Corn shall make the young men cheerful, and new wine, the maids.â
And I began to reflect on the contrast between this and Proverbs 11:26, âHe that withholdeth corn, the people shall curse him; but blessing shall be upon the head of him that sells it.â
And finally Rev 18: about Babylon....and especially vs 13, where it says âand souls of menâ as Peter also confirms in 2Peter 2:3, âAnd through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of youâ
All of these reflections caused me to again reflect upon the dream, where people were helping themselves (like starving souls) to the mounds of hamburger, taking as much as they wanted, as much as they could.
I believe the dream is a sure revelation from the Lord and is two-fold. First, the Lord is again revealing the shortness of time, that a black cloud of His judgment upon the earth is quickly approaching and that there is nothing man can do to stop it.
At the same time, the Lord is confirming the full menu we are providing at www.Second8thWeek.org. I would encourage you to visit that site and bookmark it for daily visits. The Lord is saying that He is using the teaching from Apostle Eric and the other Second 8th Week elders who are teaching there to feed those who are hungering and thirsting after righteousness. As they read (eat) God will pour in the oil and the wine to restore the soul of man.
May the God of all grace continue to edify your soul with the goodness of His knowledge as you continue to reciprocate in faith and partake of His fullness at His altar daily.
I offer this sacrifice for the hungry, seeking Christ:
The righteous carry the yoke of Christ and are made whole and fat as they partake daily of His substance, which overflows perpetually, increasing the kingdom of God. But the yoke of the flesh suppresses growth, for it is tethered to the moral code, which is tethered to the kingdom of darkness, which keeps the heart veiled in ignorance of the holy knowledge of Christ.
Yours in Christ,
