On September 17, 2016, I dreamed I received orders to board a spaceship for a trip to the moon. I was the only person on board and had no idea how to operate it. I was told all I had to do was press this one button on the control panel and the spaceship would automatically do the rest.
A swirling round shape was carved into the top of the button. When I pressed it, the engines suddenly ignited and the spaceship blasted off and took me straight to the moon, just like I was told. As it was coming in for a landing, I looked out the window and was surprised to see a man walking on the surface wearing regular clothes without any space suit.
When my spaceship landed, I exited onto the surface wearing my space suit. I was curious about the man I saw, so I walked to where he was. When I found him, I also saw several other people nearby and none of them were wearing space suits either. So, I asked him, “How are you breathing without a space suit?”
He explained, “You don’t need that here. Everyone told us it was impossible to breathe without it, but we can breathe fine. You should get rid of yours now and come with me.”
So, I took off my helmet and discovered I could breathe and what a surprise that was! Then he led me to a community where he was living with many other people. I was amazed to see buildings and streets, just like cities on earth. There were even cars driving around!
Then I met other people and they gave me an office in one of the buildings. I was assigned a job as part of a larger assignment within this community. I understood our assignment had something to do with the people on earth. The dream ended.
The orders I received to board the spaceship represent instructions from God to leave behind everything we’ve known to go to a place we’ve never seen before, which goes against all natural tendencies to play it safe and be in control since we naturally like to know what’s ahead. The instructions were insanely simple, but also sounded insane. It’s so simple, anyone can do it, but so insane, hardly anyone would dare to. It’s so easy to just get on board and push one button, but it’s impossible without great faith because it requires relying more on what we cannot see than what we can.
The apparent insanity of my orders showed how God designs our circumstances to give us opportunities to demonstrate our faith or lack of it. Everyone sees the dangers involved, but not everyone follows His instructions. Everyone faces the same fears, but only a remnant overcomes those fears to step out in faith. (Matthew 7:13-14) Regardless of what we claim to believe, our deeds reveal what we’re truly seeking, exposing what’s truly in our heart, whether we’re seeking to know God or to save our own life. (John 12:25)
Contrary to the wisdom of this world, which claims we’re all God’s children, we’re all okay, and we’re all going to heaven, God’s wisdom separates the faithful from the faithless by our deeds. Anyone can claim to know Him, but the proof is in doing what He asks us to do. (James 2:26) If we truly know Him, we’ll obey His commands, even when it looks crazy, so our deeds demonstrate what we truly believe, providing God with irrefutable evidence of our faith, which is why He bases our rewards on them. (James 2:24, 2 Peter 2:4-22, 1 John 2:3-6, 2:17, 3:4-6, Revelation 2:4-5, 2:26-28)
I had nothing to do with building the spaceship or planning the mission. That was all done ahead of time by someone else. My part was in making the choice to obey or disobey. It was a very small part, but important because unless I got on board and pushed the button, the spaceship wasn’t going anywhere, but my simple obedience ignited the powerful engines and initiated the complex navigation system, locking in my destination and guaranteeing my safe landing.
The ignition button had a swirl shape engraved into the top of it, so there was no way to press it without touching the swirl, so God made it easy to see and impossible to miss the whirlwind of His Spirit, which is the source of His great power, like a fast burst of wind, a cyclone in the unseen realm. (John 3:8) By pressing the button, I proved I was on board and in agreement with what He wanted to do, which was all He required to take over from there, doing what only He could do, all the heavy lifting required to get me to my destination, which was far beyond my knowledge or ability. (Romans 8:14, John 15:5, James 2:26) So, I believe this dream shows if we just do our part by obeying His instructions, He will do His part, making it a done deal as He carries us to the place where we can fulfill His plans for our life, opening doors for us that no man can close and closing doors no man can open. (Isaiah 22:22)
Like the whirlwind that carried Elijah into heaven, the spaceship launched me into outer space, into the realm of heaven, far beyond the realm of earth, far above all the cares, fears, worries, and burdens of this life, far above the reach of the enemy’s fiery darts. (2 Kings 2:1) It’s a wonderful place to be, but it came at a cost, temporarily separating me from everything I had known before, illustrated by being all alone in the spaceship. During that time, God was my only companion. I had no one else to share my experiences, no friends, no family members, only God, not because I had done anything wrong, but because I obeyed His instructions. Yet, I was glad to be on board because I saw things I never would have seen before, heavenly things not visible from earth, giving me a new perspective.
Even while I was still alone and confined in the spaceship, I saw a man walking on the moon, revealing a prophetic insight into what’s ahead. My long season of isolation was soon coming to an end and a new season was soon beginning, which was quite a relief. The isolation was a required part of my journey, but was never meant to be permanent because God’s plan was for the spaceship to arrive at a specific destination where others had already arrived ahead of me.
I was surprised because I did not know there were others, like Elijah and so many others discovered, but I was even more surprised when I saw this man was not wearing any spacesuit, illustrating how this place was beyond the limitations of the natural physical realm. (1 Kings 19:18) The spaceship that appeared to be so dangerous had proven to be the only safe place because it had carried me into the realm where all things are possible. (Matthew 19:26) Removing my helmet also appeared to be dangerous, but as a covering over my mind, it represented my old ways of thinking based on the limitations of the natural realm, so it was actually a hindrance, preventing me from discovering the reality of this new realm and experiencing it for myself. Removing it and discovering I could breathe without it showed how God had prepared me in ways I had not even realized, equipping me not only with everything I needed to reach this realm, but also to stay there until my assignment was completed.
As wonderful as it was to find this man, it was even more wonderful when he led me to a community of many others, all of whom had endured the same journey to get there, all carried by the power of the spaceship into the heavenly realm to a place we could never have found on our own. (Matthew 4:4) They knew I was coming and had already prepared a place for me, showing how God is preparing the way ahead of us. They helped me find my place and gave me further instructions on what to do, just as all of them had found their place.This community was well established with buildings, roads, cars, and offices, showing the scale of this work was much larger and farther along than I realized, showing God’s remnant is already spiritually positioned in the heavenly realm where they are accomplishing great things for the benefit of many others who are still in the earthly realm. (Ephesians 2:6)
There was no way to see all God was doing from earth because it was way too far away, so I was only able to see these things after I obeyed His instructions to board the spaceship. Even then, I could not see the destination and did not know where it was taking me, but I reached the right place and found my assignment. I was not left stranded along the way. Only in the end did I finally gain understanding of things that had not made sense to me before.
See you on the moon!
