Prophetic word for today (p.i.)
Hidden treasures


I had a dream within the last 10 years ~ do not remember the date or even the year any more:


I found myself walking alone up a staircase in the dark that seemed to be outside rather than inside. I was aware of the Lord with me as I ascended, and I was also aware of lights and partying going on within the rooms below me. At the top of the staircase was a very dark attic-type room (like a triangle), and I commented to the Lord "It's so dark in here!" I got down on my hands and knees to enter the room because I could not see to walk, and, as I crawled into the room, my eyes began to stream with fluorescent tears that created a puddle on the floor between my hands. In the light emanating from that puddle I was able to discern that there was something further into the room and moved toward the shadows I saw. I perceived that there were "hope chests" that were filled with "treasures", and was given to understand that these were gifts that God had given His church, but which the church had stored away in the attic like old antiques, collecting dust and forgotten. It was so sad that these gifts were up here in the dark attic and the church below continued to party, oblivious to what the Lord had given her.



Our brief comments


These dreams have several elements to consider:



The fact that the staircase seemed to be outside rather than inside points to the believers who heed God's red-horse shout and go out to the lonely black-horse wilderness. That is also the reason why the dreamer was walking alone.



The lights and partying going on in the rooms below speaks of the "Balaam feast" the Church go into once the red horse has come and gone. Whilst the remnant go out into the lonely black-horse wilderness, the unfaithful Church stay behind and continue following their leaders, who by then have morphed from "Cain"s into "Balaam"s that offer temporality-centred grace that stirs the Church's spiritual lust.



The dreamer reaching the top of the staircase represents the end of the black-horse walk and the beginning of the green-horse stage. As we have said before, the green horse comes to terminate the matriarchy of the soul and to forge the Lordship of the Spirit. This means that the green horse comes to terminate the pastoral matriarchy of the 2 "female" ministries and to allow the rise of the 3 "male" ministries in their true, righteous form. This is the reason for the "triangle" (i.e.- 3-sided) shape of the attic-type room.



The thick darkness that the dreamer experienced points to the darkness that we have studied in a previous posting under the subtitle "The dark side of the moon". Only the believers who are willing to walk through that darkness shall behold the Lord's purposes for the Church and the Earth. Walking through that darkness requires going through green-horse Death and Sheol.



The dreamer was able to see the treasures only after shedding fluorescent tears that brought light into the room. Only those who are willing to cry for the Church's current condition shall be able to visualise the Body's hidden potential and calling, for the Lord dwells in thick darkness (1 Kings 8:12). There is also deep spiritual significance in the fact that the tears were "fluorescent". As indicated on, "fluorescence quantum yield" is the term used for the "efficiency of the fluorescence process". The word "quantum" points to the "quantum leap of light" that green-horse riders make as they sacrificially cross into Death and Sheol. As they shed their lives in sacrifice, they release transforming light into the Earth (Psalm 126). There is a spiritual connexion between "tears" and "light" in Scripture:


"8 Thou tellest my wanderings: put thou my tears into thy bottle: are they not in thy book? 9 When I cry unto thee, then shall mine enemies turn back: this I know; for God is for me. 10 In God will I praise his word: in the LORD will I praise his word. 11 In God have I put my trust: I will not be afraid what man can do unto me. 12 Thy vows are upon me, O God: I will render praises unto thee. 13 For thou hast delivered my soul from death: wilt not thou deliver my feet from falling, that I may walk before God in the light of the living?" (Psalm 56:8-13)


"3 I thank God, whom I serve from my forefathers with pure conscience, that without ceasing I have remembrance of thee in my prayers night and day; 4 Greatly desiring to see thee, being mindful of thy tears, that I may be filled with joy; 5 When I call to remembrance the unfeigned faith that is in thee, which dwelt first in thy grandmother Lois, and thy mother Eunice; and I am persuaded that in thee also. 6 Wherefore I put thee in remembrance that thou stir up the gift of God, which is in thee by the putting on of my hands. 7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. 8 Be not thou therefore ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me his prisoner: but be thou partaker of the afflictions of the gospel according to the power of God; 9 Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began, 10 But is now made manifest by the appearing of our Saviour Jesus Christ, who hath abolished death, and hath brought life and immortality to light through the gospel: 11 Whereunto I am appointed a preacher, and an apostle, and a teacher of the Gentiles." (2 Timothy 1:3-11)


"3 And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God. 4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. 5 And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful. 6 And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely. 7 He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son. 8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death. 9 And there came unto me one of the seven angels which had the seven vials full of the seven last plagues, and talked with me, saying, Come hither, I will shew thee the bride, the Lambís wife. 10 And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain, and shewed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God, 11 Having the glory of God: and her light was like unto a stone most precious, even like a jasper stone, clear as crystal" (Revelation 21:3-11)



The "treasures" in the attic point to what we have studied before regarding the manifestation of the God of Israel in the Church. Since the Church want a "God" that is pleasing to their souls, they have continually rejected the true God of Israel, and have thus hindered His glorious manifestation (Romans 1:18). I find it prophetically fitting that the Lord told us to pull this dream out of nowhere, 724 days (almost 2 years to the day) after it was emailed to us. For some reason, the Lord told us to look through some old emails, and, when I came across and began reading this email, something within me immediately realised that this was the dream the Lord wanted us to post next. This email was, therefore, like a treasure that had been hidden away in an "attic" and "dusted off" in order to be manifested. Even to the dreamer, this dream was like a treasure "dusted off" from the past, for the dream was from around 1995, 10 years before the dreamer emailed it to us.


The 2 years which we unintentionally waited to post this dream points to the 2 years that Joseph was forced to remain in prison after the chief butler forgot about him (Genesis 40:22-41:1). Joseph was thus like a treasure that was left forgotten in prison whilst the chief butler went about his banal business.



The high "attic" where the treasures were hidden points to the spiritual "Inverness" where the Lord stows away His remnant as He deals with those who are delaying His manifestation. Interestingly enough, the literal "Inverness" is a city in the Scottish Highlands, and, in the "stowaway" post, the Lord had us talk extensively about "Scots". What is even more interesting is the fact that, as I have been typing these words, I have been "coincidentally" listening to a programme called "Past Lives" that was aired on BBC Radio Scotland. The programme's description on BBC's Radio Scotland website reads "Mark Stephen uncovering the hidden gems of Scotland's past", which clearly points to the uncovering of treasures.
