Prophetic word for today (p.i.)

The dodging bubble

First preliminary posting: March 17, 2007

E-mailed: March 5, 2007

Word received by: Wanda

 

I was driving; I needed to get to a building named "Dodge". While I was driving, I could see it on the left side of the road, [a] huge white building, [an] old structure, but it stood there enormous. I somehow managed and parked; [I drove down] several levels of parking, because I needed to go in. When I went up, there was no way I could enter the building. I was standing next to a wall thinking, "How can I get in?". A man appeared and said this: "Wanda, [unless you] heal from your mom's wounds, you can't enter the building." I was sad. Immediately, a lot of people filled the place (parking lot), all synchronized in their dance with a flag, and praise music started, and I woke up.

 

 

Our brief comments

 

{Fellow believer, if the Lord shares something with you regarding these dreams, please let us know. Thank you.}

 

This dream has several elements worth considering:

The levels of underground parking that sister Wanda went through speak of a deep foundation of righteousness and judgements. Only those who are willing to delve into the complex wisdom of God shall enter His Kingdom. Those who settle for a simplistic understanding of God and who do not care to operate in the mind of Christ shall have the Kingdom shut up to them. Those who are willing to grow in God's wisdom shall become living recipients and conduits of God's judgements on Earth. These are the ones who shall grow into Oneness with God.

From sister Wanda's description, it is evident that the building was very "sturdy" in nature despite the fact that the structure appeared "old". This speaks of things that may not seem "flashy and glittery" on the outside but which are "fundamentally sound" on the inside. Sister Wanda really wanted to enter the building, which speaks of believers who are drawn by inner truth, not by external grace and "blessings" of a fleeting nature.

 

bullet

As we have said before, grace is related to the "left" side. Therefore, the fact that sister Wanda could see the building to her left as she drove towards it points to the following passage:

 

"8But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD. 9These are the generations of Noah: Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations, and Noah walked with God." (Genesis 6:8-9)

 

The word "perfect" in Scripture does not refer to "lack of sin" but rather to "completeness". This is the reason why Hebrews 5:8-9 declares that Jesus was "made perfect" through His sufferings, which means that Jesus, the sinless One (Isaiah 53:9), was not "perfect" until He completed His God-assigned walk (John 19:30). "Perfection", therefore, speaks of "maturity", not "faultlessness". When the Lord describes Noah as "perfect" (v9), He is saying that Noah was not the type of believer who felt comfortable being stuck at a certain stage of his spiritual walk. He was a man who kept growing and growing because he remained under the cloud of God's judgements throughout his life. This is the reason why the cloud of God's grace hovered over Noah's life.

 

As sister Wanda was driving towards the building to her left, she was seeking to find grace in the eyes of the Lord. In that sense, she was seeking to be "made perfect" in Christ.

 

bullet

The levels of underground parking that sister Wanda went through also point to the green-horse remnant's descent to Sheol after their sacrificial "death". The green horse appears when the 4th seal of the Apocalypse is opened (Revelation 6:7-8). The 5th seal is represented in sister Wanda's "going up" from the underground parking to reach the wall. Just like believers at the 5th-seal stage, sister Wanda found herself in an "intermediate no-man's land" as she stood by the wall. She was not "away from" the building, but she was not "inside" either.

 

bullet

The fact that the huge building in the dream was "white" points to the 6th seal of the Apocalypse (Revelation 6:12-7:17). As we have said before, the white-horse anointing that remains "hidden" inside the faithful remnant during the first 5 seals becomes openly manifested in the 6th seal. This is when the enormity of the God-nature in His remnant becomes evident to all. This enormity is manifested in the form of massive judgements against those who have made a deliberate decision not to grow.

 

bullet

As sister Wanda stood by the wall, she remained "non-conformist". She was not comfortable in "no-man's land", and she was struggling to find a way to get in. Those who have decided not to grow any longer do so to avoid the "pains" and "unease" of growth. Those who want to be "perfected" struggle forth until they reach the fullness of God's potential for their lives, and they are willing to battle through any wall on the road to that goal. Just like Jacob at Penuel, they are willing to fight with the angel of the Lord until they can reach the "sunrise blessing" (Genesis 32).

 

By contrast, the Church is comfortable in "no-man's land", halfway between Egypt and the Promised Land. Any "pangs" of "unease" or "inconformity" are quickly quelled by the stupor of religious activities (Ephesians 5:7-18). This is the reason why a multitude of people filled the car park, dancing in synchronicity with a flag. As we have shared before, car parks are a figure of temporary stops. Yet, all these people were happily dancing as if the car park were their permanent place of assembly. This is the reason why their assembly and their "sacrifices of praise" are an abomination unto God.

 

"10Hear the word of the LORD, ye rulers of Sodom; give ear unto the law of our God, ye people of Gomorrah. 11To what purpose is the multitude of your sacrifices unto me? saith the LORD: I am full of the burnt offerings of rams, and the fat of fed beasts; and I delight not in the blood of bullocks, or of lambs, or of he goats. 12When ye come to appear before me, who hath required this at your hand, to tread my courts? 13Bring no more vain oblations; incense is an abomination unto me; the new moons and sabbaths, the calling of assemblies, I cannot away with; it is iniquity, even the solemn meeting. 14Your new moons and your appointed feasts my soul hateth: they are a trouble unto me; I am weary to bear them. 15And when ye spread forth your hands, I will hide mine eyes from you: yea, when ye make many prayers, I will not hear: your hands are full of blood." (Isaiah 1:10-15)

 

Remnant believers are not comfortable assembling at "temporary stops". Instead, they seek to assemble at the permanent place in the epi-ouranos (the upper heaven) where only inner-man spirits can gather. Fellow believer, if you are a remnant believer, your spirit is permanently gathered at this place.

 

"18For ye are not come unto the mount that might be touched, and that burned with fire, nor unto blackness, and darkness, and tempest, 19And the sound of a trumpet, and the voice of words; which voice they that heard intreated that the word should not be spoken to them any more: 20(For they could not endure that which was commanded, And if so much as a beast touch the mountain, it shall be stoned, or thrust through with a dart: 21And so terrible was the sight, that Moses said, I exceedingly fear and quake:) 22But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels, 23To the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect, 24And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel. 25See that ye refuse not him that speaketh. For if they escaped not who refused him that spake on earth, much more shall not we escape, if we turn away from him that speaketh from heaven: 26Whose voice then shook the earth: but now he hath promised, saying, Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven. 27And this word, Yet once more, signifieth the removing of those things that are shaken, as of things that are made, that those things which cannot be shaken may remain. 28Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear: 29For our God is a consuming fire." (Hebrews 12:18-29)

[Notice the phrase "spirits of just men made perfect" at the end of verse 23, which points to what we shared on Genesis 6:9 above. The reference to God's Kingdom in verse 28 points to what the Lord had us say about His Kingdom above. The reference to us seeking to "have grace" in verse 28 points to what the Lord had us say about grace above.]

As sister Wanda was wondering how to get into the building, a man appeared and said "Wanda, [unless you] heal from your mum's wounds, you can't enter the building". This points to the influence of the "Canaanite-mother" pastoral spirit on believers' souls. Believers under the influence of the pastoral matriarchy are indoctrinated into hating God's judgements. Their souls become bitter against His righteous judgements, and they develop an immature "oversensitivity" to any judgement logos that may "hurt their feelings". Matriarchal souls turn into fragile creatures that become overly defensive when confronted by the Spirit in the slightest way; such souls are quick to snap back with vitriolic revenge any time they are so much as "tapped" by God's rod of redemptive judgements. It is impossible, therefore, for a matriarchal soul to enter into God's Kingdom (John 3:3-5), for it is only through God's moulding judgements that we can be allowed into Him and be made One with Him for eternity. Imperfect (i.e.- incomplete) material cannot be allowed into God's perfection. Thus our mettle must be perfected through the fire of God's judgements. That is how we can be made One with the God who calls Himself, "Consuming Fire" (Hebrews 12:29, Isaiah 33:14-17).

 

"6Wherein ye greatly rejoice, though now for a season, if need be, ye are in heaviness through manifold temptations: 7That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ: 8Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory: 9Receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of your souls." (1 Peter 1:6-9)

[The word "end" in verse 9 was translated from the Greek word telos, which is the noun form of the verb teleioo meaning "to make perfect, to complete" (teleioo is the verb used in Hebrews 5:9 mentioned above). Thus, verse 9 says, "Receiving the perfection of your faith, which is the salvation of your souls". Our salvation has a "beginning" when we are born again, and it has a "completion" only until we enter the Promised Land, and that "Promised Land" is God Himself. Not all who begin their soul's salvation shall complete it. As we have said before, such people will not go to literal hell, but they will not enter into what Scripture calls "eternal life" either. There was no "guarantee" that the Israelites who left Egypt would all enter the Promised Land; in the same way, not everyone who escapes literal hell is guaranteed "eternal life", which is much, much, much more than mere "eternal existence". All believers shall "see" the Kingdom, but not all shall "enter" into it. If your found incomplete, your name shall be blotted from the book of life, even if you are not sent to "literal hell" (Revelation 3:5-6).]

As I meditated on the phrase "mum's wounds", the Lord began to impress the words "cervical cancer" in my heart. For some reason, those words had apparently been deposited into my "thought bank" some time earlier, and they began to surface (out of nowhere) as I struggled to understand the meaning of the phrase "mum's wounds". In Spanish, the word for "matrix" is "matriz". Interestingly enough, the word "matriz" is also used in Spanish to refer to the female uterus. The word "cervix" literally means "neck", and it refers to the narrow portion in the lower part of the uterus. According to wikipedia.org, cervical cancer is caused by infections that result from the prolonged presence of human papillomavirus (HPV). Because of her unwillingness to execute "cleansing judgements" and her unwillingness to be "inspected" by God in her deepest parts, the matriarchal Church's matrix (i.e.- her uterus) has advanced cervical cancer, and the souls that are undyingly faithful to the Matrix shall die of her cervical cancer.

There is a deep, deep significance to the name of the building, "Dodge". In a negative sense, the word "Dodge" refers to those who build up walls of excuses and rationalisations to dodge the "sword thrusts" of God's judgements. These are the people who can never say, "I am flawed and I am sorry"; they refuse to face up to the deep, undealt-with roots of unrighteousness in their hearts. They continue to use Canaanite excuses crafted by the Hivite mind of carnal man. They justify their attitudes and their actions through flawed but popularly-accepted paradigms of man that emphasise "courtesy" over "character", "calm" over "restoration", and "feeling well" over "being well".

 

These "matriarchal (L.A.) dodgers" are quick to launch misconstrued "counter-judgements" against those who dare to judge them. Ironically, those who despise "judgements" and "war" are the most vicious and vitriolic launchers of unfair accusations that work to destroy the peace of the righteous (whilst at the same time "buying false-peace time" for the unrighteous). Therefore, as the remnant marches on and judges these "matriarchal dodgers", the remnant are exposed to much suffering and judgements that eventually lead to their green-horse death (as was the case with the Lord Jesus). After this, a "blue shell" hardens around the remnant, a shell that allows them to dodge the vitriolic attacks that continue to be launched against them. That "blue shell" (born out of the blue prayer shawl they were wrapped in unto death) has a "repellent buffer zone" around it that allows them to dodge and weave around the sudden obstacles and attacks thrown at them by the enemy. That "blue bubble", which seems so vulnerable on the outside, is actually a strong tower of the Lord's protection around them. It is the sturdy white building seen by sister Wanda in her dream. As the dodging unrighteous are pelted with judgement after judgement from God, the remnant are placed secure in their "blue bubble". Just as Noah's ark safely bobbed back and forth in the turbulent flood waters, the remnant's "blue dodging bubble" bobs and weaves around the judgement rain around it, for the remnant have already been judged. They allowed God to judge them from the beginning, and, in doing so, they are spared from the 6th-seal judgement raining down around them. They can "weave" around the judgement because they have been willing to faithfully weave God's work in the unseen underground, just as sister Wanda did when she was driving around the different parking levels, looking for a parking spot. Unlike the unrighteous, who weave excuses, the remnant weave God's fabric of righteousness; and, because of this, they are endowed with the ability to weave around the ongoing turmoil around them without losing their spiritual calling.

 

"31For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged. 32But when we are judged, we are chastened of the Lord, that we should not be condemned with the world." (1 Corinthians 11:31-32)

 

"The name of the LORD is a strong tower: the righteous runneth into it, and is safe" (Proverbs 18:10)

[The word "safe" was translated from the Hebrew word sagab, which actually means, "to be high, inaccessibly high".]

 

"5The mountains quake at him, and the hills melt, and the earth is burned at his presence, yea, the world, and all that dwell therein. 6Who can stand before his indignation? and who can abide in the fierceness of his anger? his fury is poured out like fire, and the rocks are thrown down by him. 7The LORD is good, a strong hold in the day of trouble; and he knoweth them that trust in him. 8But with an overrunning flood he will make an utter end of the place thereof, and darkness shall pursue his enemies." (Nahum 1:5-8)

 

"6In that day, saith the LORD, will I assemble her that halteth, and I will gather her that is driven out, and her that I have afflicted; 7And I will make her that halted a remnant, and her that was cast far off a strong nation: and the LORD shall reign over them in mount Zion from henceforth, even for ever. 8And thou, O tower of the flock, the strong hold of the daughter of Zion, unto thee shall it come, even the first dominion; the kingdom shall come to the daughter of Jerusalem. 9Now why dost thou cry out aloud? is there no king in thee? is thy counsellor perished? for pangs have taken thee as a woman in travail. 10Be in pain, and labour to bring forth, O daughter of Zion, like a woman in travail: for now shalt thou go forth out of the city, and thou shalt dwell in the field, and thou shalt go even to Babylon; there shalt thou be delivered; there the LORD shall redeem thee from the hand of thine enemies. 11Now also many nations are gathered against thee, that say, Let her be defiled, and let our eye look upon Zion. 12But they know not the thoughts of the LORD, neither understand they his counsel: for he shall gather them as the sheaves into the floor. 13Arise and thresh, O daughter of Zion: for I will make thine horn iron, and I will make thy hoofs brass: and thou shalt beat in pieces many people: and I will consecrate their gain unto the LORD, and their substance unto the Lord of the whole earth." (Micah 4:6-13)

[The question "Is there no king in thee?" in verse 9 is a prophetic reference to the human kings who shall cowardly seek a place of refuge as God's 6th-seal judgements rain down over them (Revelation 6:15-17).]
