Salvation

Posted by scott on Tuesday, May 22, 2007

Last night I dreamed I saw someone I knew who asked me to give scriptures that confirmed my salvation. I said: Jn 3:16 (“For God so greatly loved and dearly prized the world that He [even] gave up His only begotten unique) Son, so that whoever believes in (trusts in, clings to, relies on) Him shall not perish (come to destruction, be lost) but have eternal (everlasting) life.”) , Ro 5:18 (“Well then, as one man’s trespass [one man’s false step and falling away led] to condemnation for all men, so one Man’s act of righteousness [leads] to acquittal and right standing with God and life for all men.”) Eph 2:8-9 (“For it is by free grace (God’s unmerited favor) that you are saved (delivered from judgment and made partakers of Christ’s salvation) through [your] faith. And this [salvation] is not of yourselves [of your own doing, it came not through your own striving], but it is the gift of God; Not because of works [not the fulfillment of the Law’s demands], lest any man should boast. [It is not the result of what anyone can possibly do, so no one can pride himself in it or take glory to himself.] “)Then someone told me to say Rm 5:4 so I did, “Moreover [let us also be full of joy now!] let us exult and triumph in our troubles and rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that pressure and affliction and hardship produce patient and unswerving endurance. And endurance (fortitude) develops maturity of character (approved faith and tried integrity). And character [of this sort] produces [the habit of] joyful and confident hope of eternal salvation.”

End-Times Dream

Posted by scott on Wednesday, May 16, 2007

Last night I dreamed I was somewhere in the country when I heard a helicopter hovering overhead. I then found myself grabbing a juice and sandwich for a trip I was to make. An unidentified man was with me and after traveling awhile sat down with me to eat. As I was finishing my sandwich, the man reached into my unfinished sandwich and pulled out a computer chip or tracking devise, which he put in the garbage and said we need to leave. We then were at a school or large health club with several other people. The area was in the mountains, (I thought it might be around Flagstaff). Everyone was in this building talking about worldly things, so the man and I stepped outside of the building and witnessed a spectacular sight in the sky. I saw numerous stars shooting across the sky from my left to my right. They hit the earth very near to where I was and caused smoke to rise up into the atmosphere. The whole sky seemed to be in chaos, It was a fearful sight and I wanted to leave. (Joel 2:10 The earth quakes before them; the heavens tremble. The sun and the moon are darkened and the stars withdraw their shining.) Soon everyone that was in the building came out to watch this. The man I was with said that we had to leave then and I agreed without hesitation because I could sense extreme danger and peril would be on us if we waited. I tried to warn those that were with us, but they seemed captivated by the stars, like they were watching a 4th of July fireworks celebration, they seemed oblivious to the warnings (Mt 24:38-39 For just as in those days before the flood they were eating and drinking, [men] marrying and [women] being given in marriage, until the [very] day when Noah went into the ark, And they did not know or understand until the flood came and swept them all away–so will be the coming of the Son of Man.) I saw a lady I knew, and tried to warn her but she seemed oblivious to what dangers were awaiting her. As we were leaving I could see an army rising from the smoke and dark clouds (Joel 2:1-3 BLOW THE trumpet in Zion; sound an alarm on My holy Mount [Zion]. Let all the inhabitants of the land tremble, for the day of [the judgment of] the Lord is coming; it is close at hand A day of darkness and gloom, a day of clouds and of thick mists and darkness, like the morning dawn spread upon the mountains; so there comes a [heathen, hostile] people numerous and mighty, the like of which has never been before and shall not be again even to the years of many generations.) I was taken by the man I was with to an observation point where I could view an army rising from the smoke that was preparing for war. I could feel evil and death all around, and knew it was imperative to hurry out of this place. The man guided me through snow to a parking lot where a humvee was. The man I was with was the driver, and as I got into the humvee, I noticed there were others already in the jeep that I knew.  As we sped away towards safety in lower elevations, I could see four high ranking military personal of the evil army marching in lock step hastily towards the building and city we had just left. Death and destruction was written all over their faces. They didn’t look like normal men but more like clones (Joel 2:7-10 They run like mighty men; they climb the wall like men of war. They march each one [straight ahead] on his ways, and they do not break their ranks. Neither does one thrust upon another; they walk every one in his path. And they burst through and upon the weapons, yet they are not wounded and do not change their course, They leap upon the city; they run upon the wall; they climb up on and into the houses; they enter in at the windows like a thief. The earth quakes before them; the heavens tremble. The sun and the moon are darkened and the stars withdraw their shining.)

Matthew 9:29

Posted by scott on Tuesday, May 08, 2007

Last night after waking around 4 a.m. I heard the Holy Spirit clearly speak to me saying, “Everything written in my word is written in love” and “read Hebrews chapter 6, especially verse 13, because this is for you and where I have you now”. As I was meditating on this, the Holy Spirit spoke again and said very clearly, “be it unto you according to your faith, Mt 9:29, this is my gift to you Scott” and then He said, “great peace have they that love thy law and nothing shall offend them” Ps 119:165. I then drifted back to sleep and dreamed I was in a room hearing someone I recognized speak on the same bible verse that the Holy Spirit spoke to me in Mathew. I jumped up and said that Mathew 9:29 reads,  “according to your faith be it unto you.” After I woke, Glennis and I gave glory and praise to God as we fellow-shipped in these words and scriptures. We talked about how God desires to show more convincingly and beyond doubt, the unchanging of His purpose and plan, to those who inherit what God has promised (Heb 6:17).  We magnified God’s promise and personalized promise of Mt 9:29, for a complete physical healing, despite what appears to be hopeless by sight. God has given us hope as an anchor of refuge in our soul. It cannot slip or break down, under the weight of anything stepping on it … Heb 6:19. We were impressed to consider how God desires for all of us to access the certainty of His presence within the veil, or the Holy of Holies. This place of refuge or green pasture, is where we find the lover of our soul, waiting to comfort us, and is available to all who hope in Him.

Heavenly voices and Healing Experience

Posted by scott on Wednesday, April 25, 2007

Last night I had a very vivid dream or vision. I was visiting a friend and we were discussing healing. While in conversation I began hearing heavenly voices singing the hallelujah chorus to Handel’s Messiah. I told my friend that I liked that hymn and just after the song started, my left arm began to raise and praise God, then my right arm. I could literally feel the physical sensation of my arms being raised and praising God. I began to shout, “It’s happening, its happening!” Then I thought, “I have to tell everyone” This is when I woke up, and looked at the clock, it was 3:59 a.m.I lay in bed for 2 hours thinking about the dream, and praising God about the eternal reality of my healing. I felt God leading me to John, chapter 11, where Jesus told Martha and Mary concerning their brother Lazarus’ sickness in Jn 11:4 “this disease is not unto death but for the glory of God” Then Jesus begins to speak to Martha about the resurrection not only being a spiritual truth concerning the body in the future, but a present reality that Jesus is the resurrection and the life, and He can heal our diseased bodies NOW!

Martha then said to Jesus, Master, if you had been here, my brother would not have died. And even now I know that whatever You ask from God, He will grant it to you. Jesus said to her, your brother shall rise again. Martha replied, I know that he will rise again in the resurrection at the last day. Jesus said to her, I am [Myself] the Resurrection and the Life. Whoever believes in (adheres to, trusts in, and relies on) Me, although he may die, yet he shall live; And whoever continues to live and believes in (has faith in, cleaves to, and relies on) Me shall never [actually] die at all. Do you believe this? vs40 Jesus said to her, Did I not tell you and promise you that if you would believe and rely on Me, you would see the glory of God?” Jn 11: 21-26,40 

Evil on the Elevator

Posted by scott on Wednesday, April 04, 2007

Last night I dreamed I found myself in a type of elevator, standing face to face with a Caucasian very athletic handsome man with blond hair. Instantly, I knew he was evil, so I tried to kill him with a type of gun I had, he just swatted it out of my hand. He became enraged and tried to kill me by a powerful blow to my chest, but his fist went right through me, and didn’t harm me. This further enraged him, and he started to grow taller and stronger, and his true evil nature began to be revealed. He then started to mock me, using ventriloquism to project a Christians voice, “I can’t stop you from telling people about Jesus, so go win souls, even speak in tongues.” Then his voice got real loud and forceful and he demanded that I work for him bringing these new souls to him so he could destroy them. I did not answer his lying threats, but instead meditated on 1 Cor 1:23 “We preach Christ crucified” I am putting my faith in Christ and Him crucified and nothing else (Gal 2:20). This demon was a lying spirit of bondage again to fear (Rom 8:15) and a hindering spirit (Gal 5:9). The  power of sin was broken at Calvary when the Son of God said “It is Finished”. I am under grace now, not the law or works added to what Christ finished on Calvary(Jn 19:30; Gal 5:1; Rm 8:2).

“Who is he that condemns? Is it not Christ who died and was resurrected, and intercedes at the right hand of the Father?” Ro 8:26.

Demons and the Wall

Posted by scott on Monday, March 12, 2007

Last night I dreamed that Glennis and I were being hunted by demonic forces who were riding horses that had arrows covering their bodies, like a type of armor. I remember working at a bookstore and hiding a book by Watchman Nee. The manager was trying to keep me in the store until the horse riders appeared. I somehow new they were coming, and attempted to run away with my wife, trying to escape them. After running and hiding in many different locations, the demon riders finally cornered us by a wall of some sort. I then cried out to God to hide us “in” Christ. We were then, suddenly part of the wall (1 Pt 2:5; Eph 2:20; Neh 2:20), where we felt safe in Christ.

I shall Live and Not Die

Posted by scott on Wednesday, December 27, 2006

Last night I was either awake or in a dream, I’m not sure. I was in the spirit and saw the devil trying to choke me but with no power. He was agitated and said, “Why are you still here?” and, “why aren’t you dead?” I replied with the verse in Ps 118:17 “I shall live and not die, and declare the works of the Lord.” 

Horns of the Altar

Posted by scott on Thursday, April 20, 2006

Around 4 a.m.I woke up; as I was awake God gave me a vision of the heavenly altar where I was holding the horns of a heavenly altar. I pondered the meaning but soon fell back asleep. The next day, I typed “what do the horns on the altar mean?” on a google search engine. I was not satisfied with what I found, but at 5:00p. m. Glennis got the mail and read a card that we received from Nancy addressed to me. She was doing a study on the altar and wanted to share  verse Psalm 118:27b with both of us. It reads, “bind the sacrifice with cords, even to the horns of the altar.” She wrote that the horns represented Christ’s strength, power and authority and when the sacrifice is bound at that specific place that is the point of contact where miracles occur. We must be aligned and spiritually inclined to receive His flow of life! I took this meaning to heart and also found Spurgeons Treasury of David commentary on the verse to be very insightful.

Resting with Jesus

Posted by scott on Thursday, April 06, 2006

Last night I dreamed I was in Israel during the time of Christ. I was at a place that had hills and scenery like southern California, but I knew this place was different. My mind thought, “Jesus must be here and I have to find Him.” As I looked at the top of a hill, I saw a man sleeping alone on his side Instantly I knew it was Jesus. I thought, if only I could get close enough to Him I would be healed. I walked towards Him, and then lay down on my side just as He was lying. As I lay down I thought He will see me when He wakes to pray, somehow I thought He would rise to pray at 3 or 4 a.m. and it was very close to that time. I also placed my head against his chest as I laid down. At this moment I woke up and thought– All is well, Jesus is resting, praise the Lord! I’m on the Mountain, resting with the King, exactly where I need to be while I sleep and when He wakes. 

“My people will dwell in a peaceful habitation, In secure dwellings, and in quiet resting places” Isaiah 32:18

Out of Body Experience

Posted by scott on Sunday, December 04, 2005

Early this week while I was sleeping I had an out of body experience, due to pneumonia and difficulty breathing. I was viewing myself sleeping in my recliner. As I viewed myself, thoughts of compassion flooded me; I thought, “why does that person look like he’s sick and needs to cough… he needs prayer”. I wasn’t sure it was me because I felt completely healthy and whole. I wasn’t able to reconcile my spirit from my flesh until I realized the sick guy was me and I needed to go back into my body so I could cough. My spirit and body met and instantly I became aware that for a moment God had allowed me to be aware of my spirit man. This happened two more times that night. When I awoke the next morning I was greatly encouraged and made aware although I am weak, dependent on God for my next breath, He continually revives me and give me strength to go on.

“The spirit of a man will sustain him in sickness, But who can bear a broken spirit?” Prov 18:14
