How are you? I’m well.
If you’ve been reading my blogs from the beginning, you might recall I shared some of the dreams that I thought were from the Lord. Looking back at the last couple of years, I was amazed by His goodness.
I received many dreams from the Lord in 2020, when the pandemic started. During the day, I wasn’t able to go out even for a cafe, as in the beginning, the alert was high nationwide and I was very conservative for mom. At that time, I lived in a studio type apartment, and got to understand why He downloaded so many dreams in that season. I think I shared the story long ago that I read a James Golls’ book, “Dream Language.” Through the book, I got to know the Lord started to meet his wife in a night season, as she had no space with many little kids in her hands, while Pastor James often traveled for ministry. She was exhausted, yet had a hunger for God. And our kind Father said to her that He would meet her in a night season. So, I got to understand He also wanted to meet me in a night season, as I had no space in that small studio type room with mom 24/7, especially in the pandemic. I shared many dreams in my blogs at that time. Interestingly enough, since I moved to one bedroom apartment and had a living room where I was able to pray alone, in the fall 2021, I’ve seldom had the dreams that I think were from the Lord. I didn’t feel upset nor longed for having much revelation from the dreams, in order to write blogs, as I think everything is done in His will. Yet, I was amazed to see how good our Father is.
Then, last November, I came to read Lana Vawser’s latest words in my email box:
My Trailblazing Daughters Are Rising!!
I heard the Lord say:
“I will meet you in the night hours and you will receive a powerful impartation from Me that will release to you all that you need to run and continue to run with Me down these trailblazing pathways.”
I watched as daughters of God all across the world were receiving MAJOR impartations, some as they slept in their dreams, others awakened by the Holy Spirit in the night, but these impartations were bringing SUDDEN transformations within them. These impartations of fire, of His vision and Word were bringing monumental shifts – these shifts I saw were lifechanging marker moments that leave you forever changed.
So I wondered whether He would give me dreams again. As I really didn’t long for having dreams much, but rather visions, I thought I would rather be awakened in the night, by praying to and praising Him. Then, on Christmas Eve, when my niece shared her writing down her dreams even in the middle of the night, I thought I must have the same attitude, i.e. not taking His dreams lightly, but respecting them. Then, like I shared last week, I had a dream since I decided to get up, no matter when He would wake me up. And I was also able to get up by His nudge. Yet there was a challenge. My mom and I shared a big room, while I turned off the heater in a small room. When I moved to my new place in last November, I thought I would not leave her alone especially at night, due to her dementia and the new environment to her. As the bed in the big room was not large enough for two of us to flip during sleep, later I decided to sleep on the floor with a cushioned mat. Then, whenever I got up around 4~5am, and went out to the living room, in order to pray, my mom got up soon, came to the living room and turned on TV. If I would move back to our bedroom to be alone, she would also chase after me. Being discouraged after all my effort to get up in His time, I thought I might start to sleep in the small room. I had peace in my heart, thinking He would protect mom and she wouldn’t be confused or scared, sleeping alone. Yet I blurted out, “Father, You should really protect and comfort her. I did everything to get up when You woke me up.” After my decision and prayer, I got to know her thought, as she always spoke her thoughts out loud, not realizing I overheard her. So, I got to know that she preferred sleeping alone in that room, but she appreciated my thoughts to care for her. And she went on to say to herself, “She was worried about me. Now it’s ok, as it’s been a while since we moved here.” God is so good that He comforted me through her monologue I overheard.
So, I started to sleep in the small room, and I couldn’t thank Him enough. It has been ages since I had my own space alone with Him. Sometimes mom got up in the middle of the night during my prayer, and opened the door of my room to check me out. Then, I just pretended to sleep, as the light in my room was off except a very dim light. Since I started to sleep alone in my own room, the time He woke me up was moved up to 1~3am from 4~5am. So I had to go to bed early, to have enough sleep before getting up at that hour. On January 9th, I became awake at 1:28am, and after praying for a while, I went back to sleep, and I had a dream:
I seemed to be in a hotel at the beach in a foreign country. It looked like the hotel’s outdoor pool, and interestingly, there was a lion in the pool. Yet I saw a few people swimming with the lion in it. Later, I also jumped into the pool and swam. I found out the lion didn’t harm those who were in the water, including me. Then, later at night, my mom tried to go to the pool alone, while there was none, except the lion. Then, I stopped her, saying it would be dangerous.
In another scene, I was observing a laboratory. A female employee in a white gown seemed to study whether a lion in their lab can be domesticated and friendly. She gave treat to the lion through the bar in the cage. The lion seemed to be friendly, smiling. His countenance with the smile even looked hilarious. Yet I saw his big claws in his two paws around the bar, as if they were highlighted to me. And I thought to myself that he might turn out to be very dangerous yet the employee seemed to treat him lightly with no fear.
When I awoke, I felt the lion was the Lord, not an evil force and swimming in the pool would be moving in the Holy Spirit. Yet, I couldn’t interpret the whole dream. I did wonder why I stopped my mom, as the Lion was the Lord, not the enemy. And I couldn’t interpret the laboratory dream at all. I simply wrote down the dream and didn’t share it with anyone. Then, in that evening, before going to bed, I was rereading a Rick Joyner’s book, “The Final Quest,” and continued reading from what I stopped the other night. Soon enough, I was marveled to read the conversation between Wisdom (the Lord) and Rick, and was able to interpret the dream He gave me earlier on that day:
“It is wisdom to love, and I could not be Wisdom if I did not love you. It is also wisdom to behold the kindness and the severity of God. It is wisdom to love Him and to fear Him. You are in deception if you do otherwise. This is the next lesson that you must learn,” he said with unmistakable earnestness.
“Just as there is a time to plant and a time to reap,” Wisdom continued, “there are times to adore the Lord, and there are times to honor Him with the greatest fear and respect. It is wisdom to know the time for each. True wisdom knows the times and seasons of God. I brought you here because it was time to worship the Lord in the glory of His love. This is what you needed the most after such a battle. I am now taking you to another place because it is time for you to worship Him in the fear of His judgment. Until you know both, there is a danger that we can be separated from each other.” “Do you mean that if I had stayed back there in that glorious worship I would have lost you?” I asked in disbelief. “Yes. I would have always visited with you when I could, but we would have rarely crossed paths. Although it is hard to leave such glory and peace, that is not the whole revelation of the King. He is both a Lion and a Lamb. To the spiritual children, He is the Lamb. To the maturing, He is the Lion. To the fully mature, He is both the Lion and the Lamb. Again, I know you understand this, but you have known it primarily in your mind. Soon you will know it in your heart, for you are about to experience the judgment seat of Christ.”
Now, I was able to understand the dream was talking about the fear of the Lord. I interpret my mom in the dream was not literally mom, but would represent the spiritual children, as I look after her as if I would be my mom’s own mom. In the dream, I stopped her from going to the pool, as the Lion might be a danger. And the Lion in the lab seemed to be friendly, but His claws were highlighted to me, implying He can be very powerful and dangerous.
Then, I asked the Father whether I would share this dream in my blog and share it with my niece, related to the pillow-talk-dream I shared last week. Then, on January 12th, I came to watch Pastor John Fenn’s latest video he posted the other night, What the Lord said: Judgement. I was marveled to hear him talk about judgement and felt He want me to share the dream, too. His weekly video is not always prophetic, but more on teaching. Yet that post is prophetic on His judgement on the body of Christ to come in this new season. And it echoed what I felt from the Lion dream. I’m sharing the link of Pastor John’s message. Hope this blesses you.
Friend, how many of us love to listen to the judgment of God and the severity of God? No matter whether we like it or not, He is our Judge and He judges both His church and the world. He is a Holy God, and we must have the fear of the Lord. The female employee in the lab in my dream came to my mind often, and I thought it really represents the way many in the body of Christ treats our King. The way we treat Him would not be limited to the way we worship only, but it would include how we live in our daily lives and how we treat others. Friend, it’s my prayer that we become fully mature and know the kindness and the severity of our God. He is the Lion and the Lamb!
Have a bliss!
The Lord reigns;
