7 Nov 2018 Word:
I was talking to God, He had a look of concern on His face and I asked Him why are you worried? He said “my people are not ready”. He has reached out to us, called us, given us everything we need to respond but He respects our free will because He is love and some have just chosen to procrastinate, saying they will get back to Him one day. When they have more time, when their problems get better, when their favorite form of entertainment is finished, when they are finished work….etc. He is right next to you waiting for you, can you spare a moment? If you haven’t already today. Can you put Him first? He has so much to teach you on what is coming. Don’t fall asleep. There’s not much time left. If you are too busy, too overwhelmed with everything, ask God to come with you, He wants to help you through it together. Listen to Him while you work. Don’t limit Him to when you have time later. Let Him walk with you through the entire day. Someone needed to hear this.
He is also telling us that if you feel like you are not good enough to speak with God and/or struggling with sin, let Him help you. He loves you and wants to help. Don’t shut Him out. Tell Him about whatever is going on. Pour your heart out to Him. He sees all anyway, there is no hiding from Him. He understands whatever you’re going through.
17 Nov 2018 saturday Sabbath morning dream :
I was driving next to a beach, my husband was with me in the car. I was in a hurry for some reason. It was the middle of the night. I went down this quiet dark road and he said “don’t go this way” but I insisted. I saw an old lady crash her scooter in front of us. The scooter had flipped onto its side and she was thrown onto the ground. She was either blind or senile as she drove straight into a large rock. I said “oh no, I need to help her”, and my husband was saying “she’s fine, keep driving”. He was impatient but I couldn’t just leave her there. I pulled over and was helping her and he reluctantly got out and started turning over her scooter. The old lady had blood dripping down her face, she had bumped her head and her foot was broken. I prayed for healing for her foot. She was crying and telling me she was a widow and showing me her photo album. I held her and comforted her. My husband was telling me to hurry up. I knew it was time to go and she seemed to be ok now or at least there was nothing more I could do for her.
She had crashed in front of a house and it was a hidden house but I knew it was there and I knew had to go in, for some reason. I found the door and went in. My husband was saying “don’t go in there”, but I knew it was the right thing. He stayed outside.
Inside, there was a beautiful bride, she was rushing around getting ready for her wedding. There were people around helping her get ready. She looked beautiful as she was but she didn’t think so. She wanted to be perfect. I was telling her “Hurry! Jesus is coming and He is almost here!” I saw a note for her, from Jesus, on the table, I can’t remember what it said. I told her the note was important and she needed to read it, now! She said she was too busy to look at the note as she was still doing her hair etc. I was trying to tell her there’s no time to do her hair, the note was more important. (I have a feeling the message was saying to call Him back asap because He wants to talk to her about something important). End of dream.
God has shown me that the road I took a detour down was the narrow road that few find, and the door was hidden for same reason. Holy Spirit was guiding me and I listened.
Matthew 7:14 “Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.”
My husband would have helped that woman if it was real life, but this was symbolic of him not following Holy Spirit, and following his own wisdom, and so he didn’t want to go that way or help the widow and didn’t enter the house.
The widow was a test of character. I wouldn’t have found the house if I hadn’t have stopped to help the widow.
The bride was beautiful with a beautiful heart, but didn’t think much of herself. If only she knew how beautiful she looked. She just needed to focus on Jesus as she will never look perfect. She was beautiful already as she really cared about Jesus and doing her best and that’s what counts.
I find there are 2 common types of christians, those who think they are ready but they are not, and they need to be warned, and those who think they aren’t ready, but they are, they need encouragement. You can never be perfect enough for God, that’s why we need Jesus.
Notes about widows in the bible:
This link shows some interesting insights about widows in the bible:
The bible calls Israel a widow who is destitute but will be restored when her husband Jesus comes for her.
As a side note: I believe solo mothers/their children who have been abandoned by the father count as widows/fatherless children. Also women/mothers who are abused/unloved are also abandoned by their husband as he doesn’t take care of their basic needs and in fact harms them which is worse than abandonment. It is also emotional abandonment. The fact that the woman in my dream had crashed accidently shows how it wasn’t her fault that she ended up in that predicament. It was accidental and she just needed a little help. Same with abuse victims. Noone chooses to be abused. We must have compassion for these women.
Judgement is coming for those men and for all people who reject these women/children, judge them, blame them and don’t help them.
27 Pure and undefiled religion before God and the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their trouble, and to keep oneself unspotted from the world.
