Let me faithsplain...
I’m a dreamer and sometimes those dreams stick with me, they seem weird, real, and even unsettling. If you know me, you know my belief level in dreams that speak. Around 25 years ago I had a dream something terrible
was going to happen to my friends husband on a trip, I told her, she shrugged it off, and a few nights later she called me screaming in the middle of the night that her husband had been in a deadly wreck on his business trip, he survived but their lives changed forever. The news shocked me and took me back to the dream… I wish I had known better and could have stopped it, but that wasn’t God’s will. Another dream I had once…
when I was getting ready to go on a ladies retreat with my church I dreamed I was standing outside “Worley’s Body Shop” and my car was there, we walked away and left it. The next day my husband dropped my off to board the bus, and I kissed my babies in the back seat, kissed him goodbye and found my seat on the bus. After some time I called me husband to check to see if he got my boys off the bus, his reply “I’m at Worley’s Body Shop, I was in a wreck. The babies are okay, they slept through it all, but the car is probably totaled.” The only words I could say were “It’s going to be okay.” I could say this in confidence and not worry because I KNEW that God was there in that moment before it happened. I knew He has prepared my heart because He needed me to stay focused on the window of blessings he was about to pour out that weekend on me.
Now… back to the piggies.
Last week, I was visiting my lifelong bestie in NY. (The same bestie whose husband I had dreamed about in a tragedy.) While I was there an encounter with a medium occurred. I walked away, the entire time I felt a heat in my
body that just wasn’t from the summer heat. Later that evening I told her why.
See, years ago I was fascinated by haunted house, speaking to the dead, and how these things happened so I started researching and before like my eyes were opened. Demons. Spirits. Principalities. They’ve been here so long that they KNOW things, can mimic things, can trick the mind, and deceive. That’s their job.
What upsets me most is the manipulation the enemy seeks so that he can steal, kill, and destroy.
Scripture says we should consult the LIVING God for wisdom, knowledge, and comfort. Not seek the dead.
“ Do not turn to mediums or seek out spiritists, for you will be defiled by them. I am the LORD your God.” -Leviticus 19:31
“ When someone tells you to consult mediums and spiritists, who whisper and mutter, should not a people inquire of their God? Why consult the dead on behalf of the living?” -Isaiah 8:19
That night, I dreamed ALL night long that I was walking about and there were people with deep afflictions; self harm, illness, depression, paranoia, and so much, so many. I realized that I could touch them right in their gut and a demon spirit would leave, take the form of a small pig, and run off. So, in my dream I was healing all night long.
I woke up the next morning and text my husband….
I knew it had come from my experience the day before. Ok, well…. Moving on.
Sunday morning my husband and I teach the young people (youts, as my husband affectionately calls them) in our church small group. He was teaching on prayer, sincere prayer, and forgiveness, sincere forgiveness.
Sidebar: I had not studied this lesson and actually he was supposed to have taught it 3 Sundays earlier but God had other plans.
He handed out the worksheet he had printed. Then, we read a scenario on one side and flipped the paper over to read the questions and scriptures on the back. He looked at the first set of scriptures and said “Let’s skip these cause we are running out of time.” It was Mark 5:2-31. Lengthy so I get it, BUT something (thanks Holy Spirit) encouraged me to flip and take a look… let’s read some of them together now.
I pray you catch this part, you receive it, you apply it. Let’s start with…
Jesus says “ Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father. 13 And whatever you ask in My name, that I will do, that theFather may be glorified in the Son. 14 If you ask anything in My name, I will do it.”
I could leave this all right here and let you meditate on all of this, but I need to share once more…
That dream I had, had a purpose, that fire in me, was to light others. As I read the scriptures to our class about the demon possessed man, the above word of Jesus rose up in me.
See, our “youts” of today are struggling and under attack. They need to hear truth about their afflictions. Many don’t believe, they don’t know there is power available to them to do even GREATER things that Jesus! Jesus gave us that gift! Don’t believe the lies that we spent have power to heal. I know there are people doing self harm, cutting, vaping, drinking, giving their bodies away, and are stuck in the muck of mental illness and depression.
This WORD is for those who BELIEVE!
Call on the name of Jesus and be FREE!
Send those “piggies” out. They don’t belong in you.
