1 Corinthians 1:18 “For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is their power of God.”
Hi friends, I’m going to share a dream the Lord gave me to show me that nothing we do for Him is in vain and that we’ll be saved just as long as we continue in the path of holiness.
I have been having a hard time lately with dealing with people who don’t want me to dress holy. They want me to dress like them in short skirts,trousers etc. They want me to put on makeup, artificial hair etc and basically live a worldly lifestyle.
For over 90% of them, the Lord has been showing me that they have been sent on a mission against me. Some are demons in human disguise,some are Satanic agents and some are just plain ignorant about the way of holiness. However the Lord has been showing me that a huge majority of those that have been trying to get me to go back to the world have actually been given an assignment against me.
I know many people out there who follow holiness are also experiencing this kind of thing.
However, you can’t be called a soldier of God if there is no battle to fight.
Also, God and all of Heaven’s forces are all on our side and the enemy was already defeated on the cross.
They have been using all tactics from mocking me about wearing decent clothes and calling them all sorts of funny names to make me feel awkward about wearing them. It doesn’t matter whether the clothes are nice or not,the only thing that matters to them is that the clothes are decent and that greatly displeases Satan as he wants all souls in hell at all costs.
They have been trying to discourage me by using all kinds of tactics.
So the Lord gave me a dream of encouragement to show me that the way of holiness pays.
In a vision of the night, I was walking home on a road which just seemed to be a normal road with some rocks,trees and grass on either side.
Then as I continued walking, I noticed that the grass on the sides of the road began to appear swampy and a smell of sewer effluence started coming out from it. The air became really polluted due to that smell. I could also hear sounds like frogs croaking and the place suddenly started getting dark quickly.
So I decided to quickly hurry up so as to get out of that smelly and dark place which was filled with the smell of sewer effluence. The place was also becoming bitterly cold due to the swampy water.
I began thinking, “I must hurry going home. I must hurry getting home.”
As I continued walking fast, I noticed that the place where I was going was uphill. It was greatly elevated and as I continued walking, the only feeling I can liken it to is as if climbing on a wall. The place I was going to was EXTREMELY HIGH!
Then it suddenly dawned on me that the place I thought I had been going to was my actual home here on earth but I realised that the home I was going to was actually HEAVEN! When this dawned on me, I increased my pace with great joy and my heart was beating wildly out of excitement! I could not contain my joy and elation!
Then I realised that I was wearing a long skirt,all the way to my ankles as I was going uphill to Heaven.
The dream ended.
When I awoke, I realised that this had actually been a message from God to encourage me to continue dressing Holy,as it pays. It is not in vain.
I also realised that the road I had been walking on before starting to climb uphill which just seemed normal before turning swampy was the world. It represented the time I was still in the world. Everything seemed normal to me at that time. A worldly lifestyle was normal and I did not see anything wrong with it. Then when I came to Christ,I started seeing the world for what it really is. It is just a dark place filled with filth like that swamp smelling of sewer. To God, worldly things are repulsive.
Luke 16:15 “For what is highly esteemed among men is an abomination in the sight of God.”
This is a message of hope and encouragement to everyone who is currently pursuing holiness and seeking the Lord. The word of God in Hebrews 10:23 tells us, “Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering for He who promised is FAITHFUL.”
The Kingdom of Heaven awaits all those who will continue walking in the path of righteousness. It is never in vain.
Friendship with the world is enmity with God.
