Carrying the Dreams of God

November 21, 2022

Within the womb of our spirit, we carry dreams - not ordinary dreams, but "God-breathed" dreams.These dreams could be referred to as "dream seeds".These seeds are planted in our inward parts by the direct operation of the Holy Spirit. Once implanted, these precious, supernatural seeds become part of our spiritual DNA. Our dream seeds carry an incredible destiny - a destiny greater than our natural ability to fulfill. Our destiny is so magnificent and important that it mandates that God Himself (with our cooperation) brings forth the reality of His plans and purposes (His dreams) for our life.

OUR DREAMER GOD

God's dreams always require that He plant a seed to bring forth a harvest . As we read God's word, we find over and over Him releasing "dream seeds" as He speaks His plans and purposes which have been hidden in His heart. Consider Abraham: God's dream was to have a nation in the earth through whom He could send a Redeemer to liberate fallen man. So how did God choose to bring His dream to pass? Not the avenue that you and I probably would have chosen. God's way was to choose a man and woman (Abraham and Sarah) who were childless. First, God separated this couple from their homeland and took them on a journey to their place of destiny. Once they arrived in the land of Canaan, God began speaking astounding words (dream seeds) to Abraham about inheriting the land of Canaan and becoming the father of many nations.

God instructed Abraham to count the stars, telling him that his seed would be as innumerable as the stars of the heavens. What a promise! After God implanted His dream seeds into Abraham, He seemingly complicated matters by waiting an additional twenty-five years to fulfill His dream. God lingered long enough for "the utter impotence of Abraham's body - which was as good as dead" (Romans 4:19) and for Sarah to become past the age of conceiving (Hebrews 11:11). In the natural this was an impossible situation. However, with God, all things are possible! God Himself would be their Enabler. God kept talking to Abraham about His dream. At some point in Abraham's walk with God, God's dream seeds grew so big in Abraham's heart that he believed God (vital) and thus became the Father of many nations (Romans 4:16).

Consider Mary, the mother of Jesus, another example of God choosing to do the impossible through a human vessel. Mary literally carried the dream of God in her physical womb.She became the one of whom the prophet Isaiah spoke, "Therefore the Lord Himself shall give you a sign, Behold, the young woman who is unmarried and a virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel God with us" (Isaiah 7:14).

When the angel, Gabriel, appeared to Mary with the stunning announcement that she, a virgin, had been chosen to carry the Son of the Most High, she asked, "How can this be, since I have no [intimacy with any man as a] husband?" (Luke 1:34). Never before in history had a virgin given birth. Mary was about to have an unprecedented biblical experience. Gabriel informed Mary that "The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you (as a shining cloud); and so the holy (pure, sinless) Thing which shall be born of you, will be called the Son of God" ((Luke 1:35). Her immediate response was surrender, for she said, "Behold I am the handmaiden of the Lord; let it be done to me according to what you have said" (Luke 1:38).

It is noteworthy that although God would be the One enabling Mary to conceive, He needed a human vessel to partner with Him for the performance of His dream. It is no different today. God's word is filled with His dreams for the closing days of time. Our Lord cannot accomplish His dreams (plans and purposes) for our lives without His Bride surrendering to her Beloved God with total abandonment and unconditional love, trust and faith in Him.

The Apostle Paul, through the unction of the Holy Spirit, looked through the corridors of time and saw God's dream for His Glorious Bride. He then penned this revelation in his letter to the Church in Ephesus. It is in this epistle that we find much revelation concerning God's Glorious Bride. For Example:

*We were chosen before the foundation of the world (1:4) *We are destined and appointed for glory (1:12) *We are being built into a holy habitation as a place for God to dwell (2:21,22) *We are to be filled through all our being with the fullness of God (3:19,20) *We are to reach unto the measure of the stature of Christ (4:13) *We are to become a Glorious Church without spot or wrinkle (5:27)

Almighty God is getting ready to display His glory in astounding and awesome demonstrations. He is going to come down in such a way that every man, woman, and child will see His glory. Although God Himself will release mighty signs and wonders in the earth, we as His people must not lose sight of the fact that at the end of the age, God has chosen to reveal His glory in and through His Glorious Bride whom He formed and fashioned to "house" His glory (Isaiah 43:7). As His Bride, we are about to arise in glorious splendor, participating in the greatest move of God this world has ever experienced!

Currently, the world mocks the Church (the Bride of Christ). They see us as powerless and irrelevant. I declare to you that an age changing transition is about to transpire. The Church/Bride is about to fulfill God's dream for her as spoken through the Apostle Paul in Ephesians 3:19:...that you may be filled (through all your being) unto all the fullness of God [that is] may have the richest measure of the divine Presence, and become a body wholly filled and flooded with God Himself!

I conclude this article with a word the Lord spoke to my heart several years ago. I feel it to be very relevant for this hour in history: You must know you are at a most strategic time in the entire plan of God. You must seize the moments of time. I have a great end-time plan, and every moment counts now. Things are not happening by chance. They are ordained of Me. I am raising up and putting down in order to position men and women in My end-time plan. Don't be alarmed as you see great changes taking place in the world. I am God and besides Me there is no other. I will be known as Almighty God in the closing days of time. My plan will not be altered for I have a people prepared and positioned to obey My every command. It is together we shall trample the powers of darkness and bring in the new day. There is still much that must take place. However, it will happen quickly. You are on the verge of the greatest move of God ever - a move that will cover the earth. All flesh shall see and experience the power of My presence. I have been preparing you for this very day and hour. You don't think you are ready. You don't feel you are glorious. However, you have been changing toward My glory and as My glory rises in you, it will dominate your whole being. You will yield to My glory, and My glory will do a sanctifying work in you, for My glory sanctifies. My glory separates. My glory will separate you from the defiling influences of this world. You will truly be wholly Mine. My heart has longed for a people since the beginning of time who were wholly Mine. It is from this position that we are one. Your greatest days lie before you, for they are days of oneness with Me. These will be for you as the days of heaven upon earth. Heaven shall saturate your being, and you will no longer be dominated by the natural realm. You will realize that you are of another world - My world. You will live in the spirit, for My realm will become more real to you than this present world, and all that can be seen with the natural eye. Your eye will be trained on seeing beyond the seen, and your ear will be sensitized on hearing that which cannot be heard with the physical ear. You will see and know things beyond the human understanding. This I have reserved for My people who are wholly Mine; those who have become one with Me. It is time. It is time for My life and My glory to fill your being. I am calling you to Myself. I am giving you the opportunity to become all that I can make you. Yield to Me and you will see you are no longer who you used to be - a product of this natural world. You will have become the product of My workmanship - beautiful and glorious and set apart for Me. You will be heavens product in this earth. When My plan has been completed, you will come home to be with Me. Forever and forever, you will spend eternity with Me.
