The Lord Almighty gave me a dream. I was in a BIG church, climbing up the stairs. There were many people upstairs and a lot of commotion. The church was about to put on a LIVE TV News broadcast from inside the church.
Then I saw a blinding flash of gold in front of my face. I was blinded by it and was very happy about it. I was proud of how well we were doing, so much so that I was about to let others know how they too could be prosperous and how the economy was ready for an upturn.
All the news broadcasters were there with a large team of people, all bustling about. There was a woman news anchor who was directing my path and equipping me with a microphone. She was very excited that even churches were prospering. She was in a big hurry. I wanted to use the bathroom, but she informed me there was no time, so we passed by it. I was a little disturbed, but not enough to go back.
She moved me closer to the cameras, but not in front of them, off to the side. As I was getting ready about to go on LIVE television, I saw myself in the reflection. I wore a black business suit. However, I had a long light green shirt on. I tried to hide it under my black suit jacket, but I couldn’t seem to hide it or tuck it in. Then I saw my hair, it was unkempt. It was ugly, greasy and in my face.
Then I heard the woman’s voice! She had started the program without me! She was the one reporting my story for me because I took too long to get ready. The news anchor was stating how the economy was prospering and then, just as she was in the middle of her report, a very large RED arrow pointing down appeared on the screen in front of her. The stock market had crashed!
Then she quickly pulled in celebrities to help her create mass hysteria around the stock market crashing! She had the celebrities running and screaming from the west and the east with disturbing looks on their faces, almost as if they were happy and purposely creating mania. I told them we didn’t need to incite panic, but they wanted to maliciously create panic, so they did not listen to me. Then I woke up.
I believe I represented the church in this dream, blinded by gold. I was ready to gloat and show everyone how well we were doing because my hand had secured so much prosperity (Isaiah 56:11-12 & Job 31:24-28). I feel this showed gold and prosperity have become idols for the church (Isaiah 65:11-12). As a result, the church is not prepared for hard times, which are going to hit. Will we remember the Lord God Almighty even when we have no money?
I did not take time to use the bathroom, which represented the church not taking time to repent (Acts 2:38), not being washed clean with with the word (see Ephesians 5:26-27).
My appearance revealed my lukewarm condition as I vacillated between the kingdom of heaven and the kingdom of this world. I was wearing a black suit, showing how the church acts like a big business (1 Corinthians 15:33-34). However, I was unable to hide my light green shirt, which was not tucked in, which shows how the church is unable to hide that she is still a church (Luke 8:16-17). My hair was messy, showing the church’s neglect of cleanliness and the resulting defilement (see Leviticus 21:10-11).
The woman took over for me because I was taking too long to get ready. She did not care about what I wanted.
The church is depending on its own prosperity, trying to be a part of the world and the kingdom of heaven. They will soon find that they will be unable to stop what the world has planned, especially in the news media because they did not separate themselves. The news media will be used to deceive and manipulate the masses with scare tactics. They do these things because their hearts are evil.
11 They are dogs with mighty appetites; they never have enough. They are shepherds who lack understanding; they all turn to their own way, each seeks his own gain.
12 “Come,” each one cries, ” let me get wine! Let us drink our fill of beer! And tomorrow will be like today of even far better.” (Isaiah 56:11-12)
24 “If I have put my confidence in gold, And called fine gold my trust,
25 If I have gloated because my wealth was great, And because my hand had secured so much;
26 If I have looked at the sun when it shone Or the moon going in splendor,
27 And my heart became secretly enticed, And my hand threw a kiss from my mouth,
28 That too would have been an iniquity calling for judgment, For I would have denied God above. (Job 31:24-28)
17 “He shall not multiply wives for himself, or else his heart will turn away; nor shall he greatly increase silver and gold for himself.
18 “Now it shall come about when he sits on the throne of his kingdom, he shall write for himself a copy of this law on a scroll in the presence of the Levitical priests.
19 “It shall be with him and he shall read it all the days of his life, that he may learn to fear the LORD his God, by carefully observing all the words of this law and these statutes,
20 that his heart may not be lifted up above his countrymen and that he may not turn aside from the commandment, to the right or the left, so that he and his sons may continue long in his kingdom in the midst of Israel. (Deuteronomy 17:17-20)
11 But you who forsake the LORD, Who forget My holy mountain, Who set a table for Fortune, And who fill cups with mixed wine for Destiny
12 I will destine you for the sword, And all of you will bow down to the slaughter Because I called, but you did not answer; I spoke, but you did not hear. And you did evil in My sight And chose that in which I did not delight.” (Isaiah 65:11-12)
11 “Whom have you so dreaded and feared that you have been false to me, and have neither remembered me nor pondered this in your hearts? Is it not because I have long been silent that you do not fear me?
12 I will expose your righteousness and your works and they will not benefit you.
13 When you cry out for help, let your collection of idols save you! The wind will carry all of them off, a mere breath will blow them away. But the man who makes me his refuge will inherit the land and possess my holy mountain.” (Isaiah 57:11-13)
