YOUR KINGDOM COME
My wife and I had booked early for the Gathering but were unable to attend. Yet I’m grateful the Lord gave the following on Saturday before the day’s meetings commenced:
Sat 3 Sept:
Am in an open-plan, modern office environment overlooking a town centre. Upon glancing out of one side’s extensive windows I'm amazed to see a large white cube flying very low over nearby buildings! (It’s about the size of a Hercules transport plane.) Watching, I see a few more similar cubes follow and fan out in different directions.
Then I look from a different quarter's aspect to see where they’re coming from and am notice this view is from a much higher floor and over a different location! Then, a couple of cubes hover and discharge some cargo, which floats down to settle on the ground – rather as furniture vans deposit items outside a house.
However, I'm seeing into a room being set up, as though the building itself is invisible! A large wooden table and its several chairs are already there as white porcelain bathroom furnishings descend, but remain hanging in space!
In a flash I understand what's happening and, without thinking, hear myself comment aloud, "They're setting up The Kingdom!"
Someone else watching disparagingly quips, "Oh, that's your perspective".
Again I'm surprised by my immediate, unconscious retort, "I studied perception at Uni!" (ie. in physics and in psychology, and am thus making a well-informed comment.)
A sudden urgency comes upon me to dash home with this news. Jumping into a car I find my normal route out of the building diverted and a huge vehicle tries to collide with me. Dodging that I drive up a slip road onto a choked road but find this very basic car becomes seriously underpowered.
So I get out to walk yet find all hard paving has turned into lush green grass of wide-open meadows. The congested road’s gone and I’m sliding down a well-worn grass slide to then run, or rather fly, much faster than I can really run!
As I approach my destination the alarm clock went off!!
An initial interpretation came with great excitement in view of several revival meetings this month. I believe the Lord gave the above heading for my note of this lucid dream.
All this needed weighing BUT I didn’t expect confirmation and more insights not only in connection with the Gathering itself but also with the prophetic word reported at the Gathering's Inception Meeting in Nov 2010!
Sun 4 Sept:
At Winchester Vineyard Church’s briefing on Sunday evening one of the attendees described the repentance of leaders at the Gathering. My spirit leapt in knowing this connected into that dream’s bathroom furnishing! (It’s symbolic of cleansing through repentance and forgiveness.)
In the dream, the bathroom appeared after table and chairs were already in place, which may mean a meeting place with purpose and authority. Then came a personal insight spoken as though from Holy Spirit, indicating only those open to Him can perceive and understand the Kingdom. Also, what is being set up is not within an obvious structure but fully exposed to those with 'eyes to see'. (Perhaps, church 'outside the walls'?)
Only later did I realise why the dream is directly connected to the Gathering. That's because the setting was in two offices in separate locations (Reading and Croydon) where I’d worked and which came under the authority of central Dept of Environment, then located in Marsham St, as is Emmanuel Church!
Thus, I believe the dream’s meaning is relevant to the Emmanuel Church Revival Alliance event and its proceeding out into the wider Church.
Incidentally, having noted the dream under the header 'Your Kingdom Come', I later learned that’s also the title of the following week's healing service in Winchester led by the Gathering's member absent in the Ukraine - Randy Clark!
Mon 5 Sept:
Happened to ‘google’ Revival Alliance and discovered website about the Gathering and read its Inception Meeting’s Report and the associated prophetic word. I was particularly struck by the latter’s, 'It is time to build a house for me to dwell in, God who even the heavens cannot contain, will dwell in a house whose walls are the Holy Spirit'.
That’s a near description of what was in the dream, for I could see as though through invisible walls into rooms. Even so, there was a definite sense of some kind of structure without my being able to ascertain its nature. Could this indicate the invisible power and work of Holy Spirit?
However, upon checking the quoted reference to Ezekiel 42:15-19 (details of the prophet’s vision of the temple)the translations to hand imply that the walls will be material, not immaterial. YET, the dream truly fits the scripture because, as Christen Forster explained to me:
“ ... in those verses you will see the word "side" (as in the King James), but the word is actually "ruach", which is wind, spirit or breath. As the winds traditionally had four directions it has been made into "sides" in English. But more literally it says, "he measured the east wind" ... hence Spirit.” [It is Strong’s number 7307, which cannot be construed as ‘wall’.]
A second item from the Report is suggestive of the dream’s closing half. It’s Tim Eldridge’s reference to Paul Revere’s preparation to alert an alliance and, hence, the urgency of spreading the news at top speed – his renowned Ride into American history!
Thu 8 Sept:
Then came an intriguing connection to the 14 years break in revival activities in UK, and when re-starting work on the Temple in Jerusalem, as referred to in the Report and at the Gathering.
The Lord prompted me to dig out a not-yet-read book entitled, 'The Heart of The Temple'. Quickly, I spotted in the Foreword's first page (by Jennifer Rees Larcombe):
"How did this passion for the Temple begin for you?"
"The seed was planted in my heart fourteen years ago", she replied. !!!
