Sea lions

I seem to be out of body. I was in [the] homes of various people. They seemed to have a British or some foreign accent. The[re was] one family [in particular that] was clearest in my memory. I was in the house. They were having dinner and normal conversation. As I stood there, I heard screams, and I looked out of the window, and there was complete chaos in the street. I saw young lions; none of them had manes. People were running and screaming, and some were being attacked by the young lions. All the while, to this family, it was [as] if nothing was going on.


I was then out in the street, and I saw a beautiful coastline, and sunrise that was so bright ... the colors of the ocean and light were so vividly beautiful. Mind you, people are still chaotic around me. Then, there came galloping across the surface of the water the Largest Lion I have ever seen, with the largest mane. The gallop was almost in slow motion, and, when his paw hit the surface, I awoke.



Our comments


Shark attack

We received this dream 10 days prior to receiving the sharks dream we recently posted. Even though we read it soon after receiving it, it is as if the Lord temporarily "deleted" it from our consciousness so that we would focus on the shark dream. As the Lord sent us back to this dream, we suddenly realised how related it was to the shark dream, and how understanding the shark dream first was required to have a fuller understanding of this dream.


As the Lord "coincidentally" prompted us to share in the shark dream, sharks are the "lions of the sea". Therefore, the young lions attacking the people in the street (which, in the dream, is portrayed as being by the sea) is a figure of the "shark attacks" being unleashed by the 5th-seal remnant upon those who, out of religious incredulity, chose to stay in the safety of dry land and refused the "seafaring message" presented by God's green-horse riders. The fact that the young lions had no manes is a figure of how God's green-horse messengers lacked a "crown" of visible authority, which caused the American Church to hesitate in Thomas-like scepticism. As these "maneless" green-horse riders were calling the Church to overcome the Goliath spirit of ministerial reverence and to clean out the cadavers of their zombie ministers, the Church hesitated. How could she truly believe that the visible authority structures before her eyes were worthless in the eyes of God and that they were nothing more than debris in the way of God's gallop across the sea and into her midst? How could she trust such a radical message that was calling her to profane her sanctuaries (Isaiah 43:27-28), especially when this message came from "young" people lacking the badges of visible authority? When Thomas the disciple saw that Jesus had been arrested by the visible "authorities" of his day, he took it as a litmus test. If Jesus came out of this arrest "unscathed", it would be definitive proof that Jesus' authority was indeed from God. If Jesus did not survive this arrest, it would be a strong indicator that Jesus' arresters represented the true authority structures of God, and that, despite all of their flaws, they were the ones to follow and live under. As you know, it took visible proof of Yeshua's resurrection for Thomas to finally recognise the God authority within Yeshua (John 20:24-28). Just like Thomas, America missed out on God's initial visitation (John 20:24), and it will take a visitation in a future generation for the American Thomas to finally yield her unbelief. Just as this generation became Thomas-like sceptical of God, God has become Thomas-like sceptical of this generation being able to manifest His Glory, and He chose not to believe in this generation until it could show Him irrefutable evidence to the contrary. Unlike Thomas the disciple, however, God never saw any such evidence.


Intensifying 5th-seal attacks

The fact that the dreamer was going from house to house is a figure of the relative "instability" experienced by believers during their 5th-seal hibernation limbo. The fact that the people in these houses had a British-type accent points to how God's remnant were forcibly "stowed away" in Britannia's spiritual atmosphere during the 5th-seal stage due to America's Thomas-like indecision.


The fact that the people in these 5th-seal houses seemed impervious to the chaos outside is because, in a spiritual sense, they are the ones triggering these 5th-seal shark attacks on those who remain indifferent to God's purposes. As the 5th-seal stage has been ridiculously protracted by this generation, the attacks have intensified, and they will continue to do so in unshakeable ruthlessness. America has stepped beyond God's line of "merciful consideration", and the time for "tempered" and "gradual" judgement is past. Just as the Church has continued to act in cold and merciless indifference towards a suffering remnant trapped in an unstable situation, so shall the Lord intensify His mercilessness towards her. Just as the Church refused to empathise with the remnant in Spirit and in truth, so shall the Lord refuse to empathise with America's plight. This is why the Britannia people in the 5th-seal houses seemed not to care about the people screaming in the streets. The "cold" shark nature of God's "soulless tin men" shall be made more and more evident as the 5th seal gets protracted all the more by the Church's and America's cold indifference to God's purposes.


The green view

At the end of the dream, the dreamer stood in the street, and she beheld the beauty of the ocean. This is a figure of how God's green-horse remnant are so aware of the beauty and potential in the sea, a beauty that the rest of believers remain unable to comprehend. The sun's intense brightness is a figure of the New-Covenant Sun of Righteousness and Judgments that God's green-horse remnant are so longing to see shining over the entire spiritual atmosphere of the Earth. The vivid beauty of the colours that the dreamer saw in the ocean and in the light are a figure of the fractal wisdom that God's remnant develop as they go through the green-horse stage. As opposed to the rest of the Church, God's maturing remnant become dissatisfied with the blasé, simplistic and compromised greyish colours that the matriarchal Church paints reality with. God's green remnant realise that the God of Israel is complex in His nature and inscrutable to the natural mind, and they realise that His truth cannot be reduced to a few simple "tenets" to live by. Just like a person in love, God's remnant long to "dig into" and know the "object" of their love in a deep and transcendent way. They are not satisfied with a superficial understanding of God, and they have enough faith to believe that the mind of Christ that God supposedly endowed them with will enable them to "dig" into the complex nature of God in order to truly know Him and be known by Him.


"For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ." (1 Corinthians 2:16)


"But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him." (Hebrews 11:6)


"But if any man love God, the same is known of him." (1 Corinthians 8:3)


"1 O LORD, thou hast searched me, and known me. 2 Thou knowest my downsitting and mine uprising, thou understandest my thought afar off. 3 Thou compassest my path and my lying down, and art acquainted with all my ways. 4 For there is not a word in my tongue, but, lo, O LORD, thou knowest it altogether. 5 Thou hast beset me behind and before, and laid thine hand upon me. 6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is high, I cannot attain unto it." (Psalms 139:1-6)

[The word "attain" does not appear in the original Hebrew text, and the word "cannot" was mistranslated from the Hebrew verb yakol, which literally means "to prevail, overcome, endure". Therefore, what the psalmist is actually declaring is that he cannot pretend to conquer or overcome God's nature and say, "I have mastered God's nature; I am now 'lord' and 'master' of it, and I can now be called an 'expert' on God". As we have shared before, theologians and seminar-egressed "ministers" have a tendency to believe that they can "analyse" God by standing "over" Him in the same way that a biologist stands over a dead frog to dissect it and know (eido) its innards. God, however, cannot be "stood over" and "conquered" by natural man. Instead, we are to sit below Him, at His feet, and receive His impartation. This is how we can get to know (gnosis) the depths of His inner nature and become One (ehad) with Him.]

"How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God! how great is the sum of them!" (Psalm 139:17)


"And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting." (Psalm 139:24)


Notice how the psalmist asks God to examine him, i.e.- to judge him, so that he may be purified and be able to abide in everlasting Oneness with the Lord. This, therefore, points to a disposition to be below God so that He may examine you, as opposed to theologians and seminar-egressed "ministers", who tend to "stand over" God to "analyse" Him and to somehow "master" Him. In order to treat God as an object of theological and "doctrinal" analysis, they must simplify God, painting Him in greyish and blasé colours in order to fit Him into their small Girgashite minds. In other words, instead of having their minds grow to understand the eternal nature of God, they shrink God to make Him fit into their small natural minds. This is why they turn Christianity into a simplistic, 1- or 2-dimensional faith, which blinds them from seeing the deep and fractal colours and dimensions of the Spirit.


The BP connection

Sister Shawntrell had this dream around 27 March 2010, and she emailed it to us on 18 April 2010. The British Petroleum oil leak in the Gulf Coast began on 20 April 2010, meaning that sister Shawntrell received this dream from the Lord 24 days prior to the oil leak, and she sent it to us a mere 2 days before the leak. Therefore, it is no "coincidence" that the people in the houses that sister Shawntrell was in spoke with a British-like accent. It is no "coincidence" either that the sea features prominently in the dream and that this dream is so intimately related to "sea lions" (i.e.- sharks), as was the case with the BP oil leak.


The delayed approach

As we saw before, the BP oil leak not only points to the plight of God's stranded 5th-seal remnant but also to the main agent behind their prolonged 5th-seal limbo: the emergence of the bastard psychopath (b.p.) barack obama, which was enabled by America's heightened and irresponsible indifference. Because many conservative Christians were not enthused by the not-too-conservative John McCain, they chose to stay home the day before Guy Fawkes Night 2008, allowing a third-world demagogue to rise to power and wreak havoc upon their nation. Instead of seeing the potential in the sleep-inducing McCain, and instead of believing that God was intent on transforming McCain from a dull moderate into a vibrant champion for truth once he got into office, they simply turned a blind eye to the monster that was creeping up behind McCain to take over the White House and begin the fundamental destruction of America. As a result, God's purposes were brutally delayed, which explains why the Great Lion that sister Shawntrell saw in the dream was galloping almost in slow motion. America's indifference has dramatically slowed the manifestation of the God of Israel on Earth.


The fact that the Great Lion was galloping on the ocean once again emphasises this dream's connection to the sharks dream. It is through the embracing of the 5th-seal remnant's shark anointing that the Church will finally leave the natural realm and start to walk in the supernatural realm. As we have shared before, the Church is (literally) hell-bent on filling itself with fig leaves, thinking that that will somehow compensate for its lack of supernatural figs. The Church is convinced that it can "wage on" like an army of mindless ants that operates in nothing but the most rudimentary spiritual understanding. Despite God's constant insistence, the Church continues to believe that the 2 swords of material resources and emotional compulsion are enough to do the task, and that the 3rd sword, the Sword of the Spirit is utterly unnecessary. She does not realise that the tools in her arsenal are woefully inadequate to carry out God's purposes. She continues to disdainfully dismiss the need for God's innovative spiritual technology, and, as long as she does, she will continue to delay the Awakening, and she will do nothing but incur God's increasing wrath against her.
