Dead In The Spirit- Dream and Interpretation
I had a dream the other day and in this dream my family and I were invited to a Mega church. I remember feeling a little apprehensive about going because I didn’t know much about this church. As we walked in the building there were crowds of people everywhere. Immediately when I walked into the sanctuary I noticed something strange. There was a casket in the front of the church and all the people that were lined up to view the casket. I looked over into the seats in the sanctuary were people were supposed to hear the word and there was no one there. The man that was in the casket was the Pastor’s son. When I looked in the casket this man’s eyes were blinking non-stop, then all of a sudden his arms started swinging, immediately after that the body started flipping around and around in the casket. All the attendants to the body started trying to hold on to it. It was obvious that he was dead in the flesh and I thought to myself that sometimes dead bodies still move before the rigor sets in. The spirit of God started to speak to me as I was witnessing these events. He said that the dead man represented ministers that are dead to his spirit, yet they have the appearance life. The people wanted to see the body but they were not interested in the word. I inquired about why it was the Pastors son that was in the casket and it was revealed to me that this is a generational issue.
God is serious about his business and is of tired people looking to the spiritually dead for direction in their relationship with him. Many times when God doesn’t fit into people’s ideal life for themselves they start to look for a “custom Jesus”.… a Jesus that will cosign on sin and cater to the desires of the flesh.
The bible says in:
2Timothy 4:3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.
If we are going to call ourselves believers and ministers of Jesus Christ, we have to separate ourselves from the flash and glamour of the world and its devices. We must take a stand against sin. We must focus on the love of God and denying ourselves for the sake of others.
