Back in 2007, I experienced a wondrous spiritual dream in the night about being in the company of Jesus' disciples - both in the 1st and 21st century. It has deeply affected me and some others with whom I've shared it. I feel inspired today to post it and beckon others to join Jesus' band. He is alive and at work in our world!
My "Disciple Dream" from February 9, 2007
In this dream I was with Jesus and in the company of His disciples. It was strange in that it was somehow set in both a 1st century and 21st century context simultaneously...almost as though time had been "bent". The details of the dream didn't seem as significant as the feelings I experienced in being involved with Him and His band.
I felt the wonder, excitement, adventure, danger, nobility, passion and the awareness of the divine purpose of being with Jesus on "His mission". There was a daily/hourly sense of depending on the Father's invisible hand of provision, guidance and protection and He was coming through on His end of the relationship...sometimes in dramatic fashion. The "ministry team" was walking together in unity, humility, courage, sensitivity, love for God and others and the power of the Holy Spirit. We were humbled by the honor and privilege of being friends of Jesus and the Father. The sacrifices that we were called to make and the sufferings and hardships we were encountering could not even come close to being compared to the joy and blessing of serving God as the "junior partners" of Jesus. It was a brief taste of what it must have felt like to actually be walking with Jesus when He was on the earth. It was also a taste of what it really is like to know, love, walk with and minister with Jesus here and now--even though He is not physically present with us. Still...He has sent us another Helper to live within us and Who works among and through us. He, the Spirit of God, communicates to us the heart and mind of the Father and the Son. What an honor it is for us to have a friendship with God in Christ Jesus the Lord!
