Here is another word I am transferring from my old site. I believe it should be on this site too. May the Lord bless and encourage you!
August 11, 2015
I receive this dreamed just before I woke up this morning at 4:59am. I was scheduled to teach at the Wallace Pack Prison Unit this morning. I asked if the dream was for the men this morning and the Lord made it clear that it was for them, but I also believe this is word is for all believers incarcerated in other ways other than inside a prison cell. I hope it encourages you.
I seemed to be with a group of coworkers at a bar after work. I do not know how late it was, it felt like it was late at night. There were no windows, but I figured it was late because everyone seemed to be very drunk and/or high. There were strippers dancing in the background. I avoided looking directly at them. It was shameful what the dancers were doing in the cages. Then the group I was with broke up and went in different directions with the intention of meeting back at the same place we were just at. That’s when I realized the bar was more like a huge club that had multiple levels, several going up above me and several going down below me.
I started walking through the club looking around for a way to get to one of the other levels. Then one of the men that was in the group I was with suddenly was walking along side me. I turned to look at him and said, hey man. He looked at me and gave me a very drunk looking smile. He was trying to hide how intoxicated he was, but he really didn’t know how obvious it was that he was totally under the influence of the liquor he had been drinking at the club.
Suddenly he made a left turn in front of me and walked straight into a men’s room to my left. That’s when I noticed stairs leading to the level below us. I went down the stairs to the very bottom floor which was very deep underground, somehow I just knew. To my surprise, there was something like an arcade with children everywhere. It looked like a scene at Chunk-E-Cheese. I walked over to a large group of kids sitting together. It seemed to be the birthday of one in the group. They were all gathered around a large movie screen watching a movie. They were in awe as they watched a movie like Peter Pan.
I walked a little closer and noticed a stack of paper bowls filled with popcorn. The bowls were decorated with the words, “THE STUFF THAT DREAMS ARE MADE OF”, on them. The children were so into the movie and the popcorn looked so good I took a small stack of the bowls. The kids all had a bowl each and they didn’t even see me taking them so I grabbed them and walked away. I starting eating popcorn as I walked away, but suddenly felt like I was stealing so I put the bowls down and started going back up the stairs to meet up with my coworkers again. End of dream
The bar is the world. The coworkers are co-laborers, as in co-laborers in Christ.
1 Corinthians 3:9 For we are God’s coworkers. You are God’s field, God’s building.
So in the dream I was with believers who were under the influence of the sway of the world. They were imprisoned and controlled by the sensual senses. The dancers in the cages represented the co-workers themselves in the cages dancing to the sound and sway of the world. Mark 4:18-19 Now these are the ones sown among thorns; they are the ones who hear the word, and the cares of this world, the deceitfulness of riches, and the desires for other things entering in choke the word, and it becomes unfruitful. Ephesians 4:14 that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting,
It was late at night and there seemed to be no windows. In the dream I felt like there was no hope for the coworkers I was with, almost as if they deserved to be there in the condition they were in. There seemed to be no way of escape for them. No WINDOWS of opportunity to get them out of the club. Matthew 14:15-16 When it was evening, His disciples came to Him, saying, This is a deserted place, and the hour is already late. Send the multitudes away, that they may go into the villages and buy themselves food. But Jesus said to them, “They do not need to go away. You give them something to eat.
Multiple levels of the club represents a person’s consciousness. Walking around looking for a way to get to one of the other levels. Represents trying to find the pathway to a person’s heart in order to help them. The coworker (a believer) who walks along side of me is so drunk it is obvious to me, but he thinks I can’t tell. The reality is that he is the one who doesn’t realize how drunk he really is. He is the drunk person you have been told to not waste your time arguing with. Suddenly he makes a left turn into the men’s restroom. Represents the person being so under the influence of the world, doctrines of man, demons, wisdom of the world, sexual and material lusts, etc. A person who seems beyond help and deserving of condemnation because they backslid from God, but there is a sudden left turn God is about to cause them to make in their lives!
Going into the men’s restroom. Represents cleansing, purifying, washing, deliverance! Bathroom is the heart, the secret place in a man that only God can see and judge.
1 Samuel 16:7 But the LORD said to Samuel, “Do not look at his appearance or at his physical stature, because I have refused him. For the LORD does not see as man sees; for man looks at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart.”
Going down the stairs to the bottom level. Represents the heart of a man, going down deep into the heart of a matter.
Children’s party on the lower level. Represents the time before a person was defiled by the world. When they still were able to believe anything they saw or heard. Luke 18:17 “Assuredly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God as a little child will by no means enter it.” Luke 17:6 So the Lord said, “If you have faith as a mustard seed, you can say to this mulberry tree, ‘Be pulled up by the roots and be planted in the sea,' and it would obey you.
The movies they were watching. Represents the destinies and callings they were being shown by God before they were formed in the womb. They were being downloaded with everything that pertained to life and godliness. Jeremiah I:5 Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; Before you were born I sanctified you; Psalm 139:16 Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed. And in Your book they all were written, the days fashioned for me, when as yet there were none of them.
Also note that the boys in the movie Peter Pan were referred to as the "lost boys".
You were downloaded with the stuff dreams are made of before you knew them.
1 Corinthians 2:9 Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, Nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him.
What does the popcorn represent?
Popcorn – Full of ideas; explosive promises; breaking out; bursting forth; expansion; spiritual revelation; truths and natural facts are being made aware to you.
Prophetic word - God is now restoring the dreams, ideas, wisdom and opportunities the enemy stole through sin, iniquity and self-destructive habits. Windows of opportunity are coming to the believers again, specifically to the believers who are the victims of their own self-destruction. The Lord will cause them to begin making sudden left turns in life, away from compromise and dishonesty, and directly into a time of repentance and healing in the presence of the Lord. This will cause hearts to be exposed before the King and He will pardon and expunge all records to make it like it never even happened. These are the ones the Lord has chosen to show great compassion to. They will not even show themselves compassion, but the Lord will move mightily upon their hearts to reveal His sovereignty and unconditional love towards those who love God and once walked with Him intimately. Where they were once given over to defeat, missing the chance of a lifetime, or even blowing the only opportunity that ever came their way. The Lord Himself will set them free from the things of the world that have kept them like caged animals, depressed and hopeless, He will break the bars of iron and release them into their destinies they thought were long gone and dead. They will begin to dream again with new and whole hearts bestowed upon them by the King Himself. He will make them to pass under His rod once again, and will bring them into the bond of His Covenant. He will purge all in their minds that transgresses against the Lord and accept them as a sweet smelling aroma and He will be hallowed in them. Then they will know that He is the Lord, when He brings them into the blessing. And then they shall remember their ways and all their doings with which they defiled themselves. Then they will know to fear and reverence the Lord, and they will know that He is Lord of all when He does not deal with them according to their wickedness but He will deal with them for His name’s sake and to reveal His lovingkindness to all who humble themselves before the Lord. He will cause you to dream again! He will cause you to believe you can again! He will put a new song in your heart and a double-edged sword out of your mouth by which you will overcome the enemy. It will be said of you, “They overcame the works of the enemy by the blood of the Lamb and by the words of their testimonies they established the victory for themselves over and over!” Their stories are so powerful, they are The Stuff That Dreams Are Made Of! Says the Lord!
His best to you,
