Building the church / jw dream
I dreamed I was with a brother in christ. I don’t know him in real life or who he was but somehow we were partners doing work for Gods kingdom together. For some reason we were at a jehovah witness church building that was abandoned and falling apart. Many people were showing up, looking lost and hungry to learn about God. They had genuinely open hearts. My thoughts are that this may be during the tribulation and these were former jehovah witnesses who now realise that they were wrong and are ready to learn the truth. They went to their old church in desperation because they don’t know where else to go. Maybe some of them were non jw that just walked up to the first church they saw. So the brother and I were teaching them the gospel and we were baptising them. There were so many just lining up, we could barely cope with them all, but we were so cheerful and happy about it and smiled to each other! There were happy tears all round. Each time we baptised someone, we tore down a brick off the old building and replaced it with a new brick. End of dream.
This dream is so exciting for me. I believe it is prophetic of my future. I think the whole reason God had me born into a jehovah witness family was so that I could understand them and help them one day to find out the truth about God.
Working alongside a partner is so perfect too. I don’t want to do it alone. I do believe God will pair us up when we do His work in the coming harvest just He did when He sent out His disciples two by two. It makes sense, “For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.” (Matthew 18:20)
The bricks being replaced is amazing, symbolic. Only God could have given me this dream because I can’t think up this stuff if I tried. The explanation is in 1 Peter 2:5 “You also, as living stones, are being built up a spiritual house…”
The old churches are going to fall (not just jehovah witness, but most churches) and Gods true church will replace them! His church is not a physical building or religion or denomination. It is made up of individual people who follow Christ. Simple. I try telling jehovah witnesses that now and they won’t listen. They believe they have the “one true religion”. I will be so happy when they finally do listen and are set free in christ!
