For a few weeks, my friends and I have been pondering this dream. I was going to hold off posting it but was encouraged that this was the time to share it. In the end, the Lord spoke to me deeply about something that has been on my heart for a while, not just in my own life but also for the body of Christ as a whole.
In the dream, I was at a large church conference that took place in my area. Get this, the main attraction of the conference was for the different well know people to show off there Puppies, Kitties, Ponies, and even Alpaca as well as all the great products they use for there animals. The level of cuteness was so high I don’t know if I wanted to gag or go pet all that adorableness.
The inner child in me quickly rose to find total excitement in petting the cute ponies and puppies that were dressed up with bows, tiaras, and even outfits to coordinate with their owners. I quickly discovered that all the owners were people I knew from my past or from media who had ministries of some sort. Some I held high regard for and some I would prefer to leave in the past. Bill Johnson had a white alpaca, Randy Clark a Fluffy Gray Pony, and even some of my local Pastors had some pretty cute animals. I was also shocked to discover that I wasn’t just an observer but I had this white Pomeranian puppy with the sparkly diamond-studded tiara.
“Seriously, a Pomeranian ankle biter?” I would have never picked this in real life! Give me a big Great Dane and I would be a happy camper.
Anyway, I walked through multiple halls of petting animals and seeing many awesome products that I could purchase for my own puppy to coordinate with my own outfit. What style and pizzazz.
I continued to move between buildings and found myself quickly becoming bored. I thought, “Well maybe if I go to this building it would be better. Or if I go visit this person, I would really find something special.” Each place I went I found great animals and people. I also found that many of them enjoyed talking about my puppy and petting her. I felt special, but yet something just didn’t feel right about it anymore. I quickly found that I was losing interest. Not just in seeing the animals and people, but also even in them seeing my puppy. To be honest, I didn’t even feel like she was my puppy in the first place. She was something the world saw and like, but she wasn’t what truly represented what I loved. As I continued to walk, kind of bored, and ready to leave.
Then something amazing happened. I heard the Lord say, “Look out the window.” As I did, I was stunned. I realized I was no longer on earth but I was looking out the window at the cosmos right outside of earth’s atmosphere, but I wasn’t seeing it from a physical realm, I was seeing it from a spiritual realm. The earth was surrounded by spaceships. Some were very much human and some were not. Some looked like something out of a science fiction movie. It looked like a rush hour traffic jam of ships and shuttles and rockets. The earth was surrounded by starships that were coming to and leaving the earth. You could tell that some of these ships were not earthly and some were. I noticed that some of the ships were carrying water from our planet to other planets and others were going to get living water and bring it to our planet. I remember being amazed and feeling like I was seeing something very vividly that was in a different realm. My jaw hit the floor and something inside me leaped.
“Papa, what is this?,” I asked. Then He explained.
“Tell my church to wake up. There is so much more going on than what meets the eye. I have given you eyes to see beyond your ministries and this physical realm into all of my creation.”
For all creation is waiting eagerly for that future day when God will reveal who his children really are. Against its will, all creation was subjected to God’s curse. But with eager hope, the creation looks forward to the day when it will join God’s children in glorious freedom from death and decay. Romans 8:19-21 NLT
You may ask, what does this dream mean? First of all, it doesn’t mean God wants you to start seeing spaceships or puppies, they were symbolic folks. I believe it means that there is something so much more interesting and valuable that God wants to show you when you are willing to get your eyes off the ministries of man and onto what God has for you personally. Will you let Him show you? Inside you is something so much bigger and unique that He placed there before you were born. It is your destiny and creation is looking forward to the moment when you begin to walk that out in your personal relationship with your Creative Heavenly Father.
