These are some dreams/visions I had in the early-morning, pre-dawn hours today [20 November 2008] ... Just had to share them with fellow believers who may also be experiencing intense pain, distress, and aloneness during this time.

 

Hands up

In the first dream, it's all darkish. A man, like a hawker or barker, is shouting to us (even though I don't actually see any other people), trying to convince us to pay attention to him. He shouts, "Now, watch me! The World is going to open up! And I am going to do it in just five minutes!" As he speaks this last sentence, he leans in towards us, stretches out his left arm, raising his hand, palm towards us and all five fingers splayed. I awaken and contemplate the meaning of this, envisioning the Earth split to the core and pried open like an orange, with a pie-shaped wedge removed.

 

Black uniform

In another vision, I see a man, up close to me, so that I can see only his upper torso and head and hands. He leans in very close to my face, cupping my chin in a large, beefy hand, and raising my head, which has been bowed, up towards him so we are looking directly into each other's eyes. As he does so, his eyes are compassionate and earnest, and he smiles kindly at me. It was a gesture meant to lift my heart and ease my loneliness, so full of kindness. He is dressed in a black wool uniform, with a gold-buttoned double-breasted jacket and a black cap with a small brim in front, the type worn by a military man, a soldier in one of the Slovak countries, perhaps, Czech or Poland. He has a full mouth, prominent brow with full eyebrows, large, round eyes, and broad, up-sloping cheek bones. I awaken and contemplate this vision also. It was so comforting and gentle, it filled me with love and peace.

 

Roses

Then, lying with my eyes open, looking into the darkness of night, I see a short vision, three-dimensional and "solid". In front of me are four miniature roses: two red, one pink and one yellow, in a small nosegay arrangement, nestled in their deep green baby leaves. They are all in full-bud stage, ready to burst into full bloom. This vision fades, and another bunch of four roses, like the first (but I can't distinguish their colors), appears and takes the place of the first bunch. Then, this also fades. I lie there, wondering what these mean, and eventually, fall asleep again and have more dreams.

 

Dressing up for the event

In one, I'm with a man whom I am to represent, that is, go in his stead, at some kind of conference, to be held in the hotel where his room is. We're trying to dress me appropriately for this event. (Even though I'm changing clothes in the same room with this man, I am not at all embarrassed or ashamed of my periodic nakedness.) He is choosing new clothes, dressier and more feminine than my own usual, casual and non-descript clothes. I am fussing about this, cranky that I have to wear more expensive and unfamiliar clothes and asking why I can't just wear my own old things. He patiently explains that my old clothes will soon turn to rags and dissolve; so I wouldn't be able to wear them anymore.

 

Then, I'm fussing because the blouse is too sheer for my comfort and must be worn with a black bra and cami underneath. This, too, makes me uncomfortable. This seems immodest and besides, now I have to start over and put on the black lingerie. I fuss again as I take off the white one and put on the black.

 

Then, I'm finally dressed and ready to go down to the event. The man, a woman (whom I vaguely know, and his associate), and I are all looking at the image of the "finished product" that I am now, in a large, oval cheval mirror, tilted slightly upward in its stand. I have on a knee-length, rather full skirted, paisley wool challis skirt, soft as a baby's downy hair. My blouse is sheer black, "Swiss-dotted" with tiny white dots, full-sleeved and feminine. On my own, I have added a heathery-green Harris tweed wool jacket, fitted at the waist. It is very comfortable and warm to me, since I used to wear riding jackets like this all the time.

 

We all agree: I am ready to go and do my part, whatever that entails, because it seems that my "mission's" requirements will reveal themselves as I proceed. I have opened the door and am walking out of the room as the dream ends, and I awake.

 

Focus ahead

At one point in the night, half awake, half asleep, I clearly see a large, red, glossy-coated Golden Retriever racing, galloping with purpose, across my actual back yard, from right to left, which is also a direction from west to east. His intense focus on what's ahead as he runs suggests that he is on a mission. On his back, bouncing around on the Retriever's hind quarters, because of the speed, is a small red teddy bear! It seems to be taking all he's got to hold on as he, too, races to this mission. At this point, I remember thinking, this reminds me of a poem written by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, entitled "The Midnight Ride of Paul Revere." You may remember that this ballad describes the work of this American Revolutionary citizen-soldier's ride throughout the countryside, awakening and alerting the people that the British had landed and were marching to squelch the rebellion. It says, in part, "Hang a lantern aloft in the belfry of the North Church tower, one if by land, and two if by sea. And I, on the opposite shore, will be ready to ride and spread the alarm, through every Middlesex village and farm! For the country folk, to be up and to arm! (I don't know why I am so moved by these words. I think, because I have been so grateful over the years for what others before me have done so that America would stand true to her promise. It also reminds me of all those believers before me who have sacrificed their lives in order
that I may have a chance to do the same for others.)

 

Notice me!

In another half-awake dream or vision, I hear, rather than clearly see him, a man shout out, "Watch me! Now!" Thinking of the other things I've seen and heard this night, I focus on intercessory praying and proclaiming, calling out to the Lord that He come soon, through His green-horse riders carrying His vindicating judgments and justice. All night long, I was filled with a sense of urgency and immediacy, that all the horses were racing around the World, fast and furious. I kept asking the Lord, "How can I serve? What would You have me to do, to hasten and help His work?"

 

The (evil) one

One last thing: I have been in such inner turmoil, distress, and self-examining since the results of the U.S. presidential election have been finalized. Putting aside all other issues and philosophies of the role of government, each time I think of this one issue, it is like punches to my chest, knocking the breath out of me and piercing my heart. It is this: The people of this nation, including so many so-called Christians, from evangelical to catholic and all the others, have just elected to the highest (secular) office in the country, and some say, the world, a man who has actively supported and underwritten, through his voting as a state senator, and with monies from its citizens, not JUST (as if they are "just"!) abortion in general; not only that cruel and barbaric, and utterly despicable procedure called "partial birth" abortions, but he has also, on THREE occasions, voted against a bill which might spare the lives of babies who actually survived their attempted murder and were living, breathing infants, by providing that, in such cases, a second doctor be present to determine if the infant could be saved! Presently, these babies are left, lying there, slowly dying, without care or concern. If this isn't outright murder, murder of infants, I don't know what else it could be called! If this had happened only one time, it would be a crime of the worst kind. But it has happened frequently enough that the state legislators felt it important enough to change the laws. What has it come to!? What kind of monsters are we?! What kind of perverse reasoning could prevail among Christian believers who evidently justified this in their minds and elected a man to the presidency who is and can be called none else but an accessory to mass infanticide!?

 

For what?! For a bowl of beans! Yes! Like Esau who gave up his eternal inheritance to satisfy an earthly craving, WE have sacrificed actual living children for the sake of hoping and expecting that some messiah-like man will fill our bellies, our pocketbooks, our earthly lusts for new cars, bigger televisions, and on and on. (I am in agony, filled with sobbing as I think of and write these things.)

 

Until now, a part of me was held back from seeing the need for utter destruction of the American temple dedicated to false gods: I held on to the hope that, despite all its problems, America was a blessed land, the land the Lord gave us so that we could grow and work and prosper in our knowledge and love of Him and of all other men, "the wretched refuse of the teeming shores" of other nations. I was wrong.

 

I was blinded by sappy sentimentalism and foolish national pride. I now know fully that this miserable, phony temple we call "church", constructed by men, for men (and women) for their own self-enhancements, is utterly corrupt, beyond repair. It must be blasted into oblivion, ground down into dust! Lord, help me, help us, to serve you in this! Lord, if these tears and wailings can be of any use to You for Your plan and purpose, I dedicate them to that end. I will constantly praise the Lord; He is my only hope and salvation. Amen.

 

 

Our brief comments

 

{Fellow believer, there are threads in this dream that have been left unexplored or partially explored. We pray that you will follow up on these threads. If the Lord shares something with you regarding this vision, please let us know. Thank you.}

 

This vision has several elements to consider:

 

bullet

The "Hands up" dream clearly points to the red horse of the Apocalypse, as shown by the following points:

bullet

The word "hawker" used in the description of the dream points to "hawks", which, as we have seen before, points to the red-horse of "hawkish" contention.

 

bullet

The world opening up in 5 minutes points to how the red horse comes to activate the ministerial grace in believers (as the Lord had us "coincidentally" study in the posting prior to this one). As we have said before, the number "5" points to ministerial grace.

 

bullet

The fact that the hawker raised the palm of his left hand points to activating the believers' unused hand, the hand of spiritual grace that has remained withered and unused because of the Church's Old-Covenant structures. As you know, the hand used by most people is the right hand. Therefore, in this context, the right hand points to our natural, visible endowments, as opposed to our left-handed spiritual endowments, which are invisible to the natural eye.

 

bullet

The "orange" mentioned in the dream points to the colour orange, which, as we have studied before, speaks of "spiritual contention" from within intended to liberate people from their oppressors. Therefore, it points directly to the red horse of "pestilent", internal contention. This is emphasised by the "pie-shaped wedge" that was removed from the Earth, which speaks of how the red horse comes to take believers out of the earthly structures of the Church through God's red-horse shout.

 

bullet

The "black uniform" vision clearly points to the black horse of the Apocalypse, as shown by the following points:

bullet

The man in the vision was dressed in a black wool uniform. The fact that it was made of wool points to the apostolic wisdom that is imbued upon those who go out to the black-horse wilderness. As we have studied before, black-horse riders are apostle-prophets.

 

bullet

The man was wearing a black cap. This points to the spiritual covering black-horse believers seek after: the covering of God Himself, rather than the "tejas" coverings in Cain's adobe house.

 

bullet

The fact that the vision speaks of loneliness points to the loneliness and isolation experienced by believers in the black-horse desert of scarcity.

 

bullet

The consolation provided by the man points to the prophetic anointing, as shown by the following passage:

 

"But he that prophesieth speaketh unto men to edification, and exhortation, and comfort" (1 Corinthians 14:3)

 

This, combined with the "apostolic wool" in the vision, emphasises the black-horse combination of apostolic and prophetic impartation.

 

bullet

The type of consolation provided by the man was of a fatherly nature. This, once again, points to the black horse, since black-horse believers come to know God as a providing Father in the desert. As they become independent from natural man, they learn to depend on God's direct provision. Red-horse believers come to know God as the "Son", i.e.- the visible Son of Man who comes with wisdom to teach and contend against the ways of natural man. Black-horse believers come to know God as the "Father" who provides for His children and who has direct contact with them. Green-horse believers come to know God as the "Holy Spirit", the One who operates in completely unknown ways and who resurrects those who follow those "illogical" ways, ways that lead through Death and Sheol.

 

bullet

The man's "beefy" hand points to the substantive spiritual provision and growth that black-horse believers experience in the black-horse desert. The believers who care only for the watery (and tainted) baby food provided by Cain will be uninterested in venturing out into the black-horse wilderness. By contrast, those who seek after solid spiritual food will be willing to go out into the uncomfortable black-horse desert, where they will experience the apostolic and prophetic impartation from God Himself.

 

bullet

The fact that the black cap with the small brim looked like a military cap points to the military preparation in the black-horse wilderness of uncomfortable scarcity:

 

"1Thou therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus. 2And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also. 3Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ. 4No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier. 5And if a man also strive for masteries, yet is he not crowned, except he strive lawfully. 6The husbandman that laboureth must be first partaker of the fruits. 7Consider what I say; and the Lord give thee understanding in all things." (2 Timothy 2:1-7)

[Notice how the speaker refers to his listener as "my son" (v1), which emphasises the Fatherly nature of God in the black-horse desert]

 

Those who are not interested in maturing and who simply want to be "fed" will reject the call to go out into the desert. Such people want the kingdom to be imposed on them from the outside, without understanding that we must wage war so that the kingdom may flow forth from inside of us and out into the world. Thus, black-horse believers are willing to undergo the necessary "military" training and endure the discipline of the Father.

 

bullet

The fact that the military cap seemed like one worn in Slovakia is no spiritual coincidence. As indicated on wikipedia.org, Slovakia is a relatively new republic (born on January 1, 1993) that was born out of its separation from what is now the Czech republic, and it has one of the fastest rates of growth in the European Union. All of this points once again to the black horse, since black-horse believers are those who break away from the stagnant structures of Cain to experience true growth as they receive direct nourishment from God the Father. Interestingly enough, Czechoslovakia (the former union of the now Czech republic and Slovakia) was notorious for its use of the colour red in its national teams, which points to red-horse contention prior to the birth of the black-horse experience.

 

bullet

The "rose" vision points to the green horse of the Apocalypse, as shown by the following points:
bullet

As we have studied before, there a strong spiritual connection between "roses" and the green-horse experience. God's green-horse riders are enamoured with the vision of the rose that blooms in the desert (Isaiah 35:1).

 

bullet

The roses were nestled in their deep green baby leaves.

 

bullet

The "solid", 3-dimensional nature of the vision points to green-horse believers who begin to operate in the fullness of the "3rd dimension" of man: the spirit dimension (1 Thessalonians 5:23). As they do, they begin to operate in the "fractal" logic of God, a logic that is completely foreign and ludicrous to those who operate for the most part in the 1st and 2nd dimensions of man (the physical, and the soul), in much the same way that the theory of relativity is nonsensical when viewed from the laws of Newtonian physics. That "fractal" logic prompts green-horse riders to see the paradoxical rose blooming in the desert, and, as they do, they throw themselves into "illogical" sacrifices that believers in the "natural zone" are unable to comprehend:

 

"21From that time forth began Jesus to shew unto his disciples, how that he must go unto Jerusalem, and suffer many things of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised again the third day. 22Then Peter took him, and began to rebuke him, saying, Be it far from thee, Lord: this shall not be unto thee. 23But he turned, and said unto Peter, Get thee behind me, satan: thou art an offence unto me: for thou savourest not the things that be of God, but those that be of men." (Matthew 16:21-23)

[Notice how this passage speaks of the "third day", which points to people who operate in the 3rd dimension. You have to enter into the 3rd day to the see the full logic behind the actions of Jesus and of those who operate in His green-horse anointing. In the first two days, Jesus' decision seems completely senseless and wasteful.]

 

"13And, behold, two of them went that same day to a village called Emmaus, which was from Jerusalem about threescore furlongs. 14And they talked together of all these things which had happened. 15And it came to pass, that, while they communed together and reasoned, Jesus himself drew near, and went with them. 16But their eyes were holden that they should not know him. 17And he said unto them, What manner of communications are these that ye have one to another, as ye walk, and are sad? 18And the one of them, whose name was Cleopas, answering said unto him, Art thou only a stranger in Jerusalem, and hast not known the things which are come to pass there in these days? 19And he said unto them, What things? And they said unto him, Concerning Jesus of Nazareth, which was a prophet mighty in deed and word before God and all the people: 20And how the chief priests and our rulers delivered him to be condemned to death, and have crucified him. 21But we trusted that it had been he which should have redeemed Israel: and beside all this, to day is the third day since these things were done. 22Yea, and certain women also of our company made us astonished, which were early at the sepulchre; 23And when they found not his body, they came, saying, that they had also seen a vision of angels, which said that he was alive. 24And certain of them which were with us went to the sepulchre, and found it even so as the women had said: but him they saw not. 25Then he said unto them, O fools, and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken: 26Ought not Christ to have suffered these things, and to enter into his glory? 27And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, he expounded unto them in all the scriptures the things concerning himself. 28And they drew nigh unto the village, whither they went: and he made as though he would have gone further. 29But they constrained him, saying, Abide with us: for it is toward evening, and the day is far spent. And he went in to tarry with them. 30And it came to pass, as he sat at meat with them, he took bread, and blessed it, and brake, and gave to them. 31And their eyes were opened, and they knew him; and he vanished out of their sight. 32And they said one to another, Did not our heart burn within us, while he talked with us by the way, and while he opened to us the scriptures? 33And they rose up the same hour, and returned to Jerusalem, and found the eleven gathered together, and them that were with them, 34Saying, The Lord is risen indeed, and hath appeared to Simon. 35And they told what things were done in the way, and how he was known of them in breaking of bread." (Luke 24:13-26)

[Notice how there were initially 2 persons in this passage, representing the 1st and 2nd dimensions of man, and how the things that had just happened became clear only as the 3rd person (Jesus) appeared on the scene.

 

The "law" represents the perfection of the 1st dimension of the soul (the "mind"), and the "prophets" represent the perfection of the 2nd dimension of the soul (the "emotions"), but they are incomplete without the manifestation of the sons of God who shall conquer the Earth, which speaks of the perfection of the 3rd dimension of the soul (the "heart")].

 

bullet

The first 4 miniature roses that were in full-bud stage and were ready to bloom correlate with the 4-year revival delay America has been going through. As we have shared in detail before, the first 2 years of the delay were decreed on May 11, 2005, which correlates with the 2 red roses. The third year was decreed immediately after the White Sox (from Chicago, the capital of the pastoral matriarchy in America) won the 2005 World Series, which signified a sad defeat in the spirit realm; this third year correlates with the pink rose, since the colour pink, when used in a negative context, refers to the unrighteous rule of the "female" ministries. The 4th year was decreed on December 23, 2005 as the American Church fought to defend the very xmas spirit that God had spit upon a year earlier. As this 4th year was decreed, God's remnant in America were being exposed to a period of heightened spiritual vulnerability during which the L.A. spirit showed its animosity towards those with God's green-horse anointing. All of this correlates with the 4th rose, the yellow rose, since the colour yellow speaks of vulnerability that draws the attack of Korah against the green-horse remnant.

 

The Lord showed these 4 roses with their colours in the vision to illustrate that the 4-year delay He has decreed on America is a "mirror" image of the spiritual process that believers go through during the green-horse stage. The 2 red roses speak of the willingness to carry out judgements both in the apostolic and the prophetic, which is something most believers in the Church are unwilling to do (when they move in the prophetic, most believers begin to shy away from apostolic judgements, and they turn Canaanite). The 3rd rose, the pink rose, speaks of a search for excellence that despises compromise-laden mediocrity. As indicated on www.phrases.org.uk, the phrase "in the pink" means "in perfect condition", and that phrase's origin is apparently derived from the Dianthus flower, many varieties of which are called "Pinks"; this flower was admired by society during the reign of Elizabeth I on account of its beauty, for which reason it became a symbol of "excellence", starting in that period. Therefore, the first 3 roses' colours mean that, as a green-horse believer begins to execute apostolic-prophetic judgements [the 2 red roses] over the (matriarchal) surroundings, he or she will begin to realise that many of the unrighteous roots run very, very deep and that there are strong clusters of individuals surrounding them, protecting them from being cut. As the frustration grows, the green-horse rider is forced to make a decision: Will he or she give up and try to coexist with the matriarchal queen soul, forgoing his or her vision of a pervasive "Tamesis rose revival", or will he or she refuse all compromise and be willing to make whatever sacrifice is necessary in order for the revival to be manifested, even if it means death and despair [the pink rose]? When the green-horse rider chooses the "pink rose", the rose of excellence, and persists in judging the environment around him, he enters into a phase where he becomes vulnerable to death from Korah and Sheol [the yellow rose].

 

Interestingly enough, the colour pink is actually a shade of red, and it is produced when you combine red and white (as indicated on wikipedia.org). As we have shared before, the colour white speaks of perfection or completion, and it is produced when you combine all 3 primary colours red, green, and blue at 100%. Thus, it is the most "comprehensive" of colours. Therefore, when you combine "judgement red" and "comprehensive white", you get judgements that seek to permeate the entire atmosphere around you. Your judgements become geared not only towards rectifying localised issues but towards "fixing the whole thing". As a believer under the umbrella of the white-horse anointing, you will seek to conquer the entire atmosphere of the Earth, submitting it under the righteous judgements of God. This is what happens when your judgements go "pink".

The "dressing up" dream speaks of a period of transition and preparation that God's remnant are currently going through as their 5th-seal hibernation period winds down. This transition will require overcoming the temptation to remain in the now familiar surroundings of the 5th-seal cave. In the dream, the Lord explains that the old clothes "will soon turn to rags and dissolve", making them unwearable. This means that remaining in the cave is not an option, for the cave is about to "cave in". It was intended as a temporary place of refuge after 4th-seal death, and it is now time to move forward, dark and uncertain as the exit path may seem. What the remnant must do is to walk forward one step at a time. As indicated by the dreamer at the end of the dream's description, the mission's requirements will reveal themselves as the remnant proceed.

 

As illustrated by the dreamer's uneasiness over her new apparel, the remnant's "coming out" involves a public exposure that they are not used to, an exposure that involves using areas they are not naturally comfortable in. This exposure will be "flashier" and more attractive to the soul than before.

 

In the dream, sister Carol was preparing to represent someone at a conference, speaking in his stead. The person she was to represent, however, was in the same room with her, helping her to prepare, which means that the reason why she was going in his stead was not because he was physically elsewhere or because he was too "sick" to go himself. There is spiritual significance behind this. Whereas most believers are waiting for Jesus to physically return to Earth and establish His kingdom on Earth, with His kingdom's capital in the city of Jerusalem in Israel, green-horse believers understand that Jesus will not establish His kingdom unless it is established through us, for, when He came to Earth the first time, His intention was not to simply conquer mankind and be their king. Instead, His plan was to restore the son of man and raise him up to the kingly status that he had lost. In other words, His intention was not to be king over us, but to be king with us. He came to restore the value and purpose of mankind per se, not to simply gain "groupies" that may adulate him.

 

"When Jesus therefore perceived that they would come and take him by force, to make him a king, he departed again into a mountain himself alone" (John 6:15)

 

"38For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me. 39And this is the Father’s will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day. 40And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day." (John 6:38-40)

[As 1 Timothy 1:16-17 and 1 Timothy 6:16 clearly show, there is a spiritual connection between "everlasting life" and "God's kingship". Therefore, when Jesus speaks of us having "everlasting life" through Him, He is saying that He came to make us kings in Him. He says this to the very people who wanted Him to be king over them. When Jesus began to change the focus from Him being the king to us being kings in Him, the crowd that had cheered Him on began to murmur and turn away.]

 

"53Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye have no life in you. 54Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day. 55For my flesh is meat indeed, and my blood is drink indeed. 56He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, dwelleth in me, and I in him. 57As the living Father hath sent me, and I live by the Father: so he that eateth me, even he shall live by me. 58This is that bread which came down from heaven: not as your fathers did eat manna, and are dead: he that eateth of this bread shall live for ever." (John 6:53-58)

[Unlike the kings of the earth (Matthew 20:25-28, Luke 22:25-27), Jesus did not come to eat up His subjects but to be eaten by them]

 

"61When Jesus knew in himself that his disciples murmured at it, he said unto them, Doth this offend you? 62What and if ye shall see the son of man ascend up where he was before? 63It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life." (John 6:61-63)

 

There are subtle references to horses and galloping in this dream:
bullet

The word "cheval" in "cheval mirror", which literally means "horse" in French

bullet

The "riding jackets" mentioned by the dreamer

These subtle references to "horses" point to "mechanised power". In other words, what the remnant must do next involves the use of "engines" or "mechanisms" that enable production en masse. These "engines" will enable a magnification of power and productivity that is not possible if you simply go afoot.

 

According to answers.com, the word "cheval"'s connection to horses point to a "support" or "frame", i.e.- an empowering framework. A cheval mirror can freely swing in this "framework", and it is large enough to reflect your entire body. Therefore, we can say that this empowering framework that God is calling the remnant to use must be flexible and comprehensive, attacking from different angles, and it will require some exposure that the remnant are not accustomed to.

 

There are many more spiritual messages in this dream, but they are beyond our current understanding.

 

bullet

As we have said before, "gold", when used in a positive context, refers to the glory of God. Therefore, the golden retriever that appears in the "Focus ahead" dream refers to those who do not settle for the "tranquil life" but who chase after the glory of God and who, not only chase after it, but want to retrieve it from heaven and into the Earth.

 

"9After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. 10Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. 11Give us this day our daily bread." (Matthew 6:9-11)

[Notice how verse 10 focuses on God's kingdom being manifested on Earth whilst verse 11 asks for provision for our daily needs. In other words, the quest for a "tranquil life" is placed below the quest to see God's kingship permeating the Earth.]

 

As indicated on wikipedia.org, golden retrievers are originally from Britain. This is no spiritual coincidence. As we have said before, the remnant spirit has been "stowed away" in the UK's spiritual realm, and a transition from that realm back to the American realm is currently in place as the 4-year revival delay winds down. Therefore, it is no coincidence either that sister Carol was reminded of Paul Revere announcing that the British had landed as she beheld the golden retriever galloping across her actual backyard. The fact that it was her backyard means that this transition is occurring behind the scenes, outside the scope of man's natural view.

 

The teddy bear that was riding on the golden retriever has strong spiritual significance. As indicated on answers.com, teddy bears were originally created by the owners of a sweets store in Brooklyn, New York. As we have said before, the green-horse remnant were denied entry into "Brooklyn" (i.e.- Kings County) in 2005, which delayed the flow of God's River in America. As the American revival delay ends, however, the male "Kings County" anointing that is heavy on God's golden retrievers will be allowed to gallop with single-minded determination into the mainstream of America's spiritual atmosphere.

 

The teddy bear also points to the remnant coming out of 5th-seal hibernation. The name "teddy" in teddy bear comes from a cub whose life was spared by U.S. president Teddy Roosevelt. Therefore, it speaks of a life that was targeted for death by the enemy but which was preserved because there was enough of a remnant in America to allow it to continue. In that "life" is hidden America's spiritual revival.

 

The word "teddy" comes from the name Theodore, which means "gift of God" and is derived from the Greek word theos meaning "God" and doron meaning "gift". The "teddy bear" riding on that golden retriever is a gift from God.

 

There are more messages hidden in this dream, but most of them are beyond our current understanding.

In the "Notice me!" dream, the Lord is telling believers across America to understand the times and to notice that the remnant "are here". As the door for the remnant's manifestation reopens, believers must ask what the Lord wants from each of them in order to enable that manifestation. That requires, however, that they raise their eyes from the ground and notice who is already there.

 

"17And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God: 18Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints; 19And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel, 20For which I am an ambassador in bonds: that therein I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak. 21But that ye also may know my affairs, and how I do, Tychicus, a beloved brother and faithful minister in the Lord, shall make known to you all things: 22Whom I have sent unto you for the same purpose, that ye might know our affairs, and that he might comfort your hearts." (Ephesians 6:17-22)

 

There are other hidden elements in this prophetic word, but this is what we discern for now. If the Lord tells you something, please let us know.
