Last night I had a dream. Here it is…
My preparations for a wedding kept getting interrupted. I was ultimately trying to do a wedding in the waiting area at an airport. Once there, it was decided to turn the wedding into a church service. When we started the service, many more people came to attend the wedding.
I remember taking up an offering. Then, as soon as the offering was received it was said that it was time to board our flight. And, we only had 10 minutes before our flight.
Here is some interpretation from this dream…
- More people came in just before departure: this speaks of a harvest revival just before the end. The word “harvest” appears 80 times throughout the books of the Bible (Genesis-Revelation).
James 5:7 Be patient, therefore, brothers, until the coming of the Lord. See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, being patient about it, until it receives the early and the late rains.
Also, Isaiah 49 (the whole chapter) is a clear picture of ingathering along with bride/wedding talk.
Isaiah 49:18 Raise your eyes and look around; All of them gather together, they come to you. As I live,” declares the Lord, “You will certainly put them all on as jewelry and bind them on as a bride.”
- Taking up an offering: again, the harvesting revival. The message of repentance and purity is the real preparation for the wedding. We—our lives—are the offerings. Just as John was a forerunner to Jesus, revival and the message of repentance will be preached as a forerunner to the next coming of Jesus.
Let us rejoice and be glad and give the glory to Him, for the marriage of the Lamb has come and His bride has made herself ready.” It was given to her to clothe herself in fine linen, bright and clean; for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints. Then he *said to me, “Write, ‘Blessed are those who are invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb.’” And he *said to me, “These are true words of God.”
Notice in the Scripture above…the bride makes herself ready. Bright. Clean. Clothed in righteous acts.
Folks, stir yourselves and be encouraged. We’re going to a wedding. It won’t be long.
