Who’s Responsible Here Anyway?

Back in October of 2017, I had a dream.

In this night vision (dream), I was a passenger in an old classic Thunderbird traveling along a flat dirt road amid farmland. As I peered through the windshield, high in a clear blue sky, I saw two nameless white airliners about to meet. I said, “Oh no! They’re going to collide!” They did. And the next thing I saw was the nose of an airliner plummeting toward earth. I expected to see a terrible crash. But when I looked out the back left window, the plane had changed into a mini space shuttle. It turned sharp and started gliding quickly along the ground, maybe 10 or so feet in the air. It was pulling behind it a single round bale of hay inside a net. Then I woke up.

Because of the unique clarity of this night vision, I immediately knew this dream was from the Lord according to Acts2. I also understood that He was granting me authority to pray and decree … something. So I sought Him in prayer and asked for more details and direction for prayer.

“It is the glory of God to conceal a matter and the glory of kings to investigate a matter.”

Proverbs 25:2 HCSB

In a nutshell…
After a couple of days of prayerfully processing the different elements of the dream, the Lord revealed this: “United” & “American” collided and turned into a more powerful aircraft, “space shuttle.” The bale of hay represents the Harvest of American souls to come in this great season ahead (research/google this biblical topic if you want to know more).

Only, the hay bale was way too small to be ‘great’ because the space shuttle was too tiny to haul anything larger. God, by divine choice, works through His beautiful Bride, the Church to bring Heaven to earth (Matthew 28). Unity in the body needs to happen first, and happen BIG, in order for there to be a Great Harvest.

Jesus Christ said, not to the unbeliever, but to all those who believe in and follow Him,

“But when the Spirit of truth comes, He will guide you into all the truth. He will not speak on His own; but whatever He hears, He will tell you. And He will declare to you the things that are to come. John 16:13 TLV

Whose responsibility is it to restore unity?
No duh. Of course, America needs to re-unite. But if we believe the one to make this happen is the US President, think again.

The airliners in the dream represent the churches of America (The Body of Christ presently divided)—and Heaven has a plan. God’s Spirit-filled Church is the only “vessel” that can usher in unity in our nation, and it begins with the members of the Body. We are His ambassadors and priests on earth. If you’re a believer, that includes you. And me. Yet this move toward UNITY must begin with our Spiritual leaders, who have to lay aside their biases, prejudices, and judgments, and “…pursue what promotes peace and what builds up one another. Romans 14:19, HCSB, emphasis mine.

I have a hunch God will remove those leaders who are unwilling to align with His purposes; and He’ll replace them (old wineskins) with new leaders whose hearts are fully surrendered to Him and not to their own personal agendas.

 

What, then, can we do?

“Offer an open hand of fellowship to welcome every true believer, even though their faith may be weak and immature. And refuse to engage in debates with them concerning nothing more than opinions.

Romans 14:1 TPT, emphasis mine

Let’s put on our big boy pants, or big girl pants. Here is a starter list of things we have within our ability to do if we desire to see our country put back together again into “one nation under God, indivisible…”

  • LAY aside all prejudice, bias, and judgment. ALL of it. Let God who sees with clarity into every heart handle the judgment department.
  • PRAY for the leaders of your congregation and those of other churches in your city.
  • REACH out to brothers and sisters who make you feel uncomfortable because they’re different from you. Make new friends.
  • TEACH peace through your good deeds. Be a daily living example of one who has expelled judgment from your soul. For “…those who are peacemakers will plant seeds of peace and reap a harvest of righteousness (justice)” James 3:18 NLT.

 

What other peace-promoting, life-giving suggestion can you add to the above list?
What show of kindness can you share today that will promote the unity of the Bride?

 

A Word From the Embattled Spirit

“For when you demonstrate the same love I have for you by loving one another, everyone will know that you’re my true followers.” John 13:35 TPT

“And we no longer see each other in our former state—Jew or non-Jew, rich or poor, male or female—because we’re all one through our union with Jesus Christ with no distinction between us.” Galatians 3:28

“When we bless the cup at the Lord’s Table, aren’t we sharing in the blood of Christ? And when we break the bread, aren’t we sharing in the body of Christ? And though we are many, we all eat from one loaf of bread, showing that we are one body.”   1Corinthians 10:16-17
