In a dream on November 21, 2018, I had received a message that someone was going to be secretly approaching me. Then some time passed and I had sort of forgotten about it. Then one day, I was sitting outside in a public place when a man in a military uniform walked up to me and greeted me. He was smiling and looking directly into my eyes as he reminded me, “You got my message about meeting with me, right?”
The way he looked at me and smiled was like he knew me, so I looked at him closely to see if I had met before, but I could not recall ever seeing him before. I looked at his uniform for more clues about who he was, but even though it was a military uniform, it was different from any I had ever seen before. It was mostly blue with some white trimmings and looked very sharp, clean and crisp.
Even though I had no recollection of ever meeting him before, I somehow immediately recognized him and knew things about him, like someone I had known for a very long time. I saw his life in God, where he was walking, so I had great respect for him and instantly liked him.
Then he started introducing me to other people, men and women. They were all smiling and friendly, just like him, but none of them were wearing uniforms. My reaction to them was the same. Although I had never met them before, I immediately recognized them like I had known them a long time. I felt the same great respect for their walks with God, just like I did with Him.
Then the scene changed and we were all gathering together in a large room for a meeting. The chairs were positioned along the walls forming a large circle. I had a good seat, but then I realized there were some things I needed to get done that required a desktop, so I gave up my seat to find a seat at a desk. Others were continuing to enter the room looking for seats, so they were glad my seat was available.
Another room was next to this larger room, separated only by a partial dividing wall. I found a desk where I could still see everything happening in the larger room, so I took my seat there to get started with my work. End of dream.
Sitting outside by myself in a public place illustrated the temporary season of isolation, but God had already told me changes were coming as He was sending people to connect with me, illustrating His prophetic announcement to those who have been isolated, letting them know that season is coming to an end. (Amos 3:7) I believe God wants us to know a new season of supernatural connections is ahead and we will be amazed by how perfectly we fit together, like long lost friends.
When the man approached me, asking, “You got my message about meeting with me, right?” That was a confirmation letting me know this was the fulfillment of what God had told me so I knew it was safe to listen to him and meet his friends.
Even though I did not know him, he seemed familiar because I knew him in my spirit. I recognized the joy of the Lord beaming from his face. I saw his inner man, so I knew his life was filled with clarity of purpose, purity of motives, and right with God because He was filled with the same spirit of life and truth, so even though I didn’t know him, I felt like I had known him a long time. I felt completely at home with him, in agreement with him, like I could trust him and confide in him about anything.
In the same way, I had never seen a uniform like his, but I recognized the authority it represented. It was clean with nothing unclean about it. It was blue and white, like the blue sky, the color of the heavenly realm, which often represents revelation because it only comes from heaven. White represents purity and righteousness, like the great white throne of God, which is established on righteousness. (Psalm 89:14 and 97:2, Revelation 20:11) So, even though I had never seen a uniform like it before, it told me a lot about him and who he represented. It also showed he had been entrusted with authority.
Even in the dream, I was aware of the irony of not knowing any of these people, yet feeling like I already knew them, and it was the same with everyone I met. I saw something in them that caused me to have great respect for their relationship with God. So, God was giving me the desires of my heart by connecting me with them, but He did it all while I just waited. It would have been impossible for me to find them on my own, so they had to find me as God directed them.
The large meeting room where we sat in a circle shows we had been joined together for a common purpose with a mission to complete. Giving up my seat to find a desk shows my assignment required observing what was happening in the larger room and writing it down to share with others and illustrating how we will each have specific assignments and we will know what to do.
I believe this dream reveals a new season ahead, bringing an end to the season of isolation, like the years when the Israelites wandered in the wilderness without any way to provide for themselves, but He showed them His faithfulness by supernaturally meeting their needs, feeding them with manna from heaven. (Deuteronomy 8:2-6) He never intended for them to stay there, only to pass through on their way to a far better destination, which He described as “a good land, a land of brooks of water, of fountains and springs, flowing forth in valleys and hills; a land of wheat and barley, of vines and fig trees and pomegranates, a land of olive oil and honey; a land where you will eat food without scarcity, in which you will not lack anything.” (Deuteronomy 8:7-9)
In the wilderness, we wondered many times if perhaps God had forgotten us or abandoned us as we endured the torments of uncertainties, fears, and traumas, and relationships strained to the point of breaking, because we couldn’t see the fruit of righteousness maturing and producing in us an abundance of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. (Galatians 5:22-23) While we were wondering if we were going to die, God was equipping us with everything we need for abundant life, not only for healing our wounds from the past season, but also for producing great relationships and success in our assignments in the new season. He is bringing restoration in every area of our life.
A new destination is coming into view. Those who have faithfully endured the previous season will be rewarded for diligently seeking Him. He has promised to generously repay a hundred times more than what we sacrificed to follow Him, including relationships and material possessions, not in the next life, but here in this life, just as He promised. (Hebrews 11:6)
28 Peter began to say to Him, “Behold, we have left everything and followed You.”
29 Jesus said, “Truly I say to you, there is no one who has left house or brothers or sisters or mother or father or children or farms, for My sake and for the gospel’s sake,
30 but that he will receive a hundred times as much now in the present age, houses and brothers and sisters and mothers and children and farms, along with persecutions; and in the age to come, eternal life. (Mark 10:28-30)
