How are you? I’m well.
On January 13th, 2021, I had a dream where I seemed to be in a company’s office. It seemed as though my colleagues and I were preparing for an exam. Thus, we set a table in the corner of the pantry. My colleagues and I were sitting around the table and I put my Bible and my journal notebook on the table and went somewhere for a while. When I got back to the table, I noticed my Bible and journal notebook disappeared. I tried to locate them, and I finally found them out in the sink of the pantry. They got wet from the water in the sink. Especially the ink on my journal notebook spread all over the paper and I got so angry. I went back to the table where my colleagues sat and I threw my Bible and notebook to the table, asking them who did that. They kept silent, but they seemed to know who did that. Later, I got to know Hilary (not her real name), the personal assistant of the head in the office did that. But she pretended for long that she didn’t do that. Being so angry, I asked her why she did that to me. And she said, “Your reading the Bible and journaling reminded me of my husband, and I hate it.” I felt her excuse was nonsense and I rebuked her.
When I awoke and was able to recall the dream, I found it so funny, but I felt it was from the Lord and thought I knew what the dream meant. Hilary, the assistant of the head in the office served a very long year till her early sixties, to my recollection. I heard that she was laid off, after I left the company. She went to church, but not regularly. And her way of living did not represent Jesus at all. My Christian colleague and I called her Jezebel, just between the two of us, as we thought she was so evil. She tried to control all the employees, even including her boss and make the office her kingdom. Under her, she had a few assistants to report to her, and a lady who cleaned the pantry also reported to her. She bullied her subordinates that they left the company one by one, as they couldn’t put up with her torments anymore.
When I recalled the dream, I interpreted that she represented Satan. With regard to her saying that my reading the Bible and journaling reminded her of her husband, I interpreted her husband doesn’t literally mean her real husband, but Jesus. As James W. Goll shared in his article, 8 Common People in Dreams, “A husband in your dream often means that Christ Jesus the Lord is drawing ever so close in a covenant relationship,”I think the husband she mentioned represented Jesus, though it doesn’t mean Satan married Him. And I understood that Satan is very jealous of my communion with Jesus through my praying-reading the Bible and journaling. Since I watched and read Pastor Mike Bickle’s teaching on meditating on His Words and praying-reading the Bible, I started to read the Bible, to talk to Jesus and to know more of Him. It gave me such a joy and comfort, as I chose not to search the Scriptures out of legalism or self-righteousness anymore.
And I’m sure Satan would hate it and he would like to get rid of my Bible and my journal, to take away the good thing that won’t be taken away. I think the Lord showed me the enemy hates my walking on the right path after turning from the path of legalism, and he wants to do whatever it takes to stand in my way to the Lord. I recalled Neville Johnson’s teaching on meditation, and he mentioned it’s not easy, but the reward of meditation is remarkable and great. How much more would the enemy hate our receiving great rewards?
I’m sharing this to encourage you to continue to do or start to do what the enemy hates and is jealous of. I pray that we always sit at the feet of Jesus and talk to and listen to Him, in Yeshua’s name.
Have a bliss!
