My dream this morning

Jesus on the cross

Jesus on the cross

I don’t usually tell my dreams publicly to people. But I had a dream earlier this morning that I believe was from God for me and others. Here is the dream and what I believe is the interpretation.

Dream: There was a banquet for supper. The hour was late, about 9 p.m. I was welcoming people as they came in, pointing them to another room where they could get the appetizers and wine. One man asked where the room was and I gave him directions. I was telling the guests we were about to start the banquet and to get ready. My grandmother Gentry was sitting at the head of the table. She was thanking me and giving me credit for helping so much with preparing the feast. I was humbled, not wanting to call attention to myself. Everyone was excited and couldn’t wait to eat and was hungry.

Interpretation: God has prepared a wedding feast for His people–the marriage supper of the Lamb. (Revelation 19:6-9, ESV). The hour is late; Jesus is about to come.

Numbers have spiritual meanings. The number 9 is symbollic of divine completeness, finality and judgment; Christ died at the 9th hour of the day to make the way of salvation open to everyone. There were 9 people stoned, 9 special widows, and 9 people afflicted with blindness in the Bible. There were 9 judgments of God. (Haggai 1:11)

There are 9 fruits and gifts of the Holy Spirit (Galatians 5:22-23) The Day of Atonement (Yom Kippur) begins at sunset on the 9th day of the 7th Hebrew month. The number 9 relates to prayer and intercession -Peter and John went to the temple at the hour of prayer being the 9th hour (Acts 3:1). Cornelius was fasting and at the 9th hour, he prayed and had a vision (Acts 10:30)

I believe the room with the appetizers and wine represents that God has “appetizers” and wine for us to enjoy- the wine of the Spirit. (Ephesians 5:18)

The man asking for directions to the room represents people who are lost. We need to share about Jesus with others, giving them directions. We need to tell others about being filled with the Holy Spirit.

My grandmother Gentry in real life was a very good, loving, wise person. I believe she personifies Wisdom and God’s love in the dream. (Proverbs 1:20)

My grandmother giving me credit and thanking me for my help before the banquet represents that God sees all you are doing, all your labor of love for Him. He will give you credit and reward you. (Ephesians 6:8)

Everyone at the banquet being hungry represents the hunger of people today for God. Share with them God’s good word and about Jesus. (John 4:32)

Dream big (The Martins video)

Do something every day that brings you closer to your dream

Closer to your dream

This past Sunday at our small group home church, our group leader Ruth played a YouTube video that she and I feel was for me right now with my upcoming trip to Kenya and Uganda, Africa. 🙂

It’s called Dream Big by The Martins.

I LOVE the lyrics, written below. After the lyrics is the video. Enjoy!

What is your big dream? Dream big because God is a big God!

Lyrics to Dream Big by The Martins

I believe that anything is possible
If we understand who Jesus is

I believe there’s nothing that can stop us
If we learn to dream like Jesus did

So don’t limit your ambition
to what’s commonly defined

God has a special heart
for those who walk outside the line

Don’t be afraid to spread your wings and fly
It doesn’t hurt to try

If you’re gonna dream….

Chorus
Dream big
It’s the Lord’s desire for you to
Dream big
In everything you say and do
You’ll see your greatest dream come true
‘Cause all of Heaven is dreaming big for you

I believe that we can make a difference
If we fall down on our knees and pray

Long ago just twelve men turned this world around
And we can do the same today

So let your imagination run as far as you can see
And dream along with God of everything that you can be

Don’t be afraid to spread your wings and fly
It doesn’t hurt to try

If you’re gonna dream…

Chorus

Oh, I love the word impossible
’cause that’s what God does best

So just reach for the improbable
And He will do the rest

If you’re gonna dream…

Chorus
