Prophetic Dream: “The State of the Church”

I was in the pastor’s house, surprised by the walls made of aged and darkened wood. In the blink of an eye, I found myself in his daughter’s bathroom. After going, to my dismay, I realized there was no tissue paper. I desperately searched the room for something to use when I noticed a thick shirt that apparently belonged to the pastor’s daughter. I remember thinking, I hope she doesn’t get mad, but this is all I have.

Next, I was in the living room, with a window to my left that covered the entire wall. I was amazed at the light radiating through its panes, filling the whole room with warmth. As I admired the scene, the pastor walked toward me and said the following about his wife: “I don’t know why she’s still sleeping. I told her not to, but she’s been asleep since 2:00 pm.” It was already about seven or eight o’clock in the evening, and I was ready to leave, so the pastor waved me toward the door and followed me outside.

Just outside, there was a road with a flat piece of land on the hillside. I could still see the house with the vast window as it peaked over the lot of parked cars. Looking back to the cars, I saw two young girls getting into their vehicles to leave. I sensed that once they left, I, too, could exit in my vehicle. Other people were milling about—young and old—all heading toward their parked cars. 

When I looked at the pastor nearby, I noticed his wife sitting alongside him on a bench. Others were with her, but she stood out with her black top and sunglasses masking her expressionless face. I thought it odd that she never once turned her head to the right or the left but sat still, looking straight ahead. I remember thinking, She doesn’t even acknowledge that I’m here. Can’t she see me?

God’s Revelation

  • The pastor represented God. 
  • The living room was the place of revelation. 
  • The daughter’s bathroom symbolized a purge or cleansing.
  • In the old, dark house resides the sleeping bride of Christ and the cleansed bride of Christ. One is content to stay while the other is ready to go.
  • With the daughter’s garment, God was showing me that I was His daughter. A daughter of God belongs to the royal family of God. (Ephesians 2:19) So then you are no longer strangers and aliens, but you are fellow citizens with the saints, and are of God’s household. In (Psalm 45:13) we are given a picture of a daughter of God. The King’s daughter is all glorious within; Her clothing is interwoven with gold. 
  • God revealed the state of the church in my dream by showing me that it needs to awaken to His original intent in His message, and its people need restoration. God has been warning the church to WAKE UP, but the church has failed to heed the warnings. Wake up bride! Open your eyes! You must keep watch and pray! The time has come, the hour has come and your eyes are heavy! You are disillusioned! You have fallen into a disillusioned state!  
  • The cars parked outside represented ministries. Some were new, and others were old, but everyone was getting into the cars and leaving. The Lord spoke to me, “It’s time for ministries that have been parked and waiting to go forth in the earth.”
  • As I looked, I saw an old car that had been restored to its original condition. It was absolutely beautiful! As it was moved from its space, the tall grassy edges it left beneath indicated that it had been there for an extended period of time. I heard the Lord say, “There are ministries that have been sitting for years, preserved and waiting for their time. These ministries have been restored to their original condition. Now is the time for them to move into their calling and destiny. I have preserved and restored them. They will be used for my glory!
  • The wife on the bench was to show that the sleeping bride had fallen under the enemy’s influence. Her black garment and shaded eyes symbolize her darkness, and she no longer sees what is right in front of her. She had been sleeping so long that her eyes were now heavy. She was doomed to sit on the sidelines while the Cleansed Bride of Christ moves upon the earth. The time has come for God to separate the cleansed bride from the sleeping bride. It’s time for a new beginning church!
