To my surprise, the next morning I had a similar dream to what that gentleman had shared with me. Now, one might be persuaded to think that my subconscious was influenced by the knowledge of his dream but, I am frequently presented with dreams from other people and, I cannot recall of anytime I’ve ever had a dream inspired by someone else’s. Given that understanding and with how detailed the dream was of which I had myself, I in no way believe this was anything other than a dream given to me by the Holy Spirit. I also believe that the Lord coordinates the order and timing of events such as, that gentleman sharing his dream with me then, I being given a similar dream to bring an understanding that these dreams are not merely a personal revelation but rather on a larger scale, which is for the Body of Christ.
I won’t be sharing the dream that was messaged to me because his dream was tailored specifically for him, while yes, my dream is for me, it has a dual purpose of ministering to me personally as well as, for the purpose of ministering to the Body of Christ.
I was in a house which was my home but not the home that is presently my real-life home. It seemed that I was either doing some sort of spring cleaning or remodeling (I was doing something to the walls). While I was doing this work, I heard a conversation taking place from behind me. This perplexed me a bit because as far as I knew, there was not anyone else in the room with me. I turned around trying to assess the scenario and then realized the conversation I was hearing was coming from a backpack lying on the floor. Unknowingly, someone had dialed my phone number, and without my intervention, my phone picked up the call and broadcasted it over the speaker, allowing me to hear their supposedly private conversation. I knew the couple whose conversation I was listening to and was a bit surprised in hearing the negative discussion they were having amongst themselves about specific people whom we mutually knew. At that time, I woke up, got out of bed but decided it was way too early to be up for the day so I laid back down and upon once again falling asleep, the dream continued from the point it had been interrupted at. In the dream, I walked over to the front door and glanced out at the driveway looking at my car. It was a beautiful gold toned car and I felt a sense of gratitude as while looking at it, I paused to absorb the reality of it being my car. At the same time, feeling gratitude it also felt almost surreal.
I then began to walk through my house and noticed allot of people were in there with me. They were people from all different eras of my life. Some were people I had gone to school with, some were people I knew from past churches I attended, and some were people I am presently in contact with.
As I walked to what I had considered to be the back/bordering wall of my house, I noticed a door that I had never noticed prior to that moment. Quite curious as to what I would find behind this door, I walked over and opened it and then proceeded to walk on through it. I was amazed to discover it was an extension of my house that I never knew existed. It was huge! My mind began to race with so many questions; how could I have lived in this home for so long and never have known about this door? How could there be so much more to this house than what I was aware of? How did I not see it for so long, since in this moment it is as plain as day?
Once through the doorway, I discovered the true Master bedroom and was astonished in realizing this one room was about the size of the entirety of the other part of the house I had been living in up to this point. This newly discovered and real master bedroom did not merely consist of one room, rather it was many rooms connected to one another and was large enough for an entire house to fit comfortably into.
Amazed and delighted, I kept walking around trying to fathom this new reality I had stepped into. As I walked through the house, I chatted with all the people who were gathered in there with me, they were all filled with joy in seeing my pure delight. I expressed over and over to them how amazed and ecstatic I was with this new discovery, and what a joyous gift it was! No one was jealous or envious, rather, all shared my joy as if it were theirs as well.
End of dream.
For the most part, I believe this dream is self-explanatory, so I am not going to go into great depth with each segment, rather I will highlight portions of it.
First, I do believe we are in a season of spring cleaning if you will, or remodeling/updating not only our natural homes, (as, it is spring and we are all confined at home) but we’re also in a season of cleaning our spiritual houses. This can be relevant to internally on a personal level (heart, mind etc.) or it can be in reference to what we might consider to be our churches, or organized religion. More than likely, you cannot have one without the other, so it is safe to say, the cleaning or remodeling takes in all the above.
Spring cleaning, if you will, is the process of doing a thorough cleaning. Remodeling is the process by which you change or alter the form, structure, or style of something. Which leads us into the private conversation being broadcast over the speaker phone. I believe this is a revealing of those who have been portraying themselves as friends or trustworthy partnerships of a sort, and yet behind the scenes, or behind our backs (thus the conversation was heard from within a backpack – which is carried ‘behind our backs’), have been secretly betraying us in some form or another. The Holy Spirit will be exposing these false friendships and covenants as is needed. Not for the purpose of discrediting anyone, or even for the intent of sparking division, rather for the necessity of being wise to who is genuine in our lives and who is not.
Next in the dream, I took a walk over to the front door in order to view the car I owned. Oftentimes, vehicles in dreams are representative of ministry or our calling, which includes our workplaces. When I considered the car I saw, my first inclination was the golden color is symbolic of the glory of the Lord, but when I shared this dream with someone else, their response was in regard to wealth because they related the gold color to gold in the natural. I do believe we are in a time where both, natural resources of wealth are soon to be released to us for kingdom purposes, as well as, entering into a time where we will be ministering more than ever within the glory realm of the Lord (true presence).
Let’s talk about the door in the house that I had never noticed before. This part is the most exciting part of the dream for me. With all my heart, I believe this is speaking to us of stepping into realms of the Kingdom that we have never realized existed but have been right before us all along, waiting to be discovered. How much of the realm of heaven is within us but we have not yet seen or entered? The Lord is ministering to us the vastness of His kingdom that He wants us to know about and walk in and is readily available to us now. It has always been available to us, but we’ve not had eyes trained to recognize its existence. This is expansion – not the expansion of the Kingdom as if it were less than, up to now, but rather, the expansion of our receptiveness of being able to enter in and dwell in a much larger realm of mobility, function and rest within the Kingdom, than ever before.
I view the many people from various eras of my life all gathered in there with me, as being the Body of Christ as a whole. Although we often do not realize it, because sometimes acquaintances come and go throughout our lifetimes that often seem to have little significance, but in truth, there’s not one person who we’ve crossed paths with that has not had some type of significant role in our life’s purpose. Whether we recognize it or not, does not change the fact or the purpose that even one seemingly small encounter had, in our growth and opportunity process, which was directed by the Lord. Therefore, at this point in my (your) life, as symbolized within this dream where expansion is being acknowledged, every person that I (you) crossed paths with was a divine setup to play a portion whether big or small to take me (you) exactly where the Lord wanted me (you) to be in exactly the timing I (you) was to be there in.
And although I was within my own home and discovering all that was given to me, in the same measure, what we each are given is never exclusively for our own benefit but rather in some measure also for the benefit of those who are placed in our paths. Think; the gift of healing; the gift of prophecy; wealth; wisdom, and so on.
The people gathered in the house with me rejoiced alongside of me as if my discoveries of expansion were theirs as well. This is a beautiful example of the Body of Christ in unity.
Acts 4:32-35 “All the believers were one in mind and heart. Selfishness was not a part of their community, for they shared everything they had with one another. The apostles gave powerful testimonies about the resurrection of the Lord Jesus, and great measures of grace rested upon them all. Some who owned houses or land sold them and brought the proceeds before the apostles to distribute to those without. Not a single person among them was needy.”
I’m expectant and excited to walk through that doorway into the realm of the Kingdom I’ve personally not yet discovered!
