(Edited by Sister Cheryl Lowe)
Note by Immanuel:
Knowing the importance of the month of September of this year in God’s timetable, I have been praying for God’s revelation and confirmation, especially His vision for me personally in His work.
For a couple of months, the Lord had been impressing upon me that He would be speaking to me on the day of September 9, 2019. I am impressed with the understanding that it is a fulfillment of the time frame of 17 years of hiddenness for me, and of the reality of the 9th floor- where the classroom of the ministry of divine discipleship is. (Click here to read this previous dream.) God is always faithful. On that very night of September 9th, I had two dreams that I think are both very instructive, and prophetic.
They confirm my understanding of the present turn, that the remnant of God who are chosen to fulfill and serve the purposes of God, are going through. It is the fulfillment of the word of the Lord I heard many years ago: “The Church Age is over, the Kingdom Age is coming!”
My impression is that it also signals the commissioning of a “new” heaven-sent priesthood (the first-fruits of our time), who are entrusted with the Father’s heart, will, and grace, to usher in a new era in the history of man, and to put into effect the work of the Lord in its midst. I witnessed this change in an out-of-body experience in the beginning of my walk with the Lord. Indeed, it has been a long time coming.
All glory to God, who is ever faithful to fulfill His promises and His revelation. May His Name be highly exalted. May His will be done on earth as it is in heaven. May His faithful and chosen people be encouraged and blessed with His grace and power, to be about His business in their stations and walks of life!
Dream: A New Standard
There seem to be other parts that lead up to the scene that I remember… I vaguely remember that we were involved with different groups of people, where Brother Tim Pinson was accompanying me. Evidently, we were trying to relay to them the message or understanding that the Lord had us to represent. But people were busy with their own ministries or their own lives, and we made very little impact. Yet somehow, we were acknowledged by them as ones sent by the Lord, and our heart and intent were valuable to them. Due to the vagueness of my recollection, I can’t really recall many details, especially about our own thoughts or experiences. But, it offers some context with what takes place in the parts that I do remember…
The scene that I do recall starts with a great gathering in a hall. There are rows of leading minsters from our time, sitting packed before a podium, where a few prominent ones take turns to share their vision and understanding of God’s heart and purpose for our time. I sit directly in front of the speaker, a couple of rows from the podium, which is placed in the middle of a platform. Evidently, the one speaking now is the last, and he is very inspiring and eloquent. The message is the perfect summary of the type of encouraging vision that the audience is accustomed to, and also expect to hear. Applause breaks out after he finishes, as he still stands behind the podium. I can sense the excitement of the whole audience, everyone feeling uplifted.
As this is still going on, I remain detached and quiet. Then some in the audience close to me from my right, rise up, and motion for the others to simmer down. The audience duly and kindly obliges. It seems that they all have a sense of respect for me, of which I am not quite aware. The speaker, and all those around me begin to look at me, and are eager to hear what I have to say. They are a wonderful group of people, whose heart and joy is to serve the Lord with their best. I am very apprehensive to say anything. But the speaker begins to directly address me, and encourages me to share whatever is on my heart. Sensing their earnest sincerity, I rise from my seat and try to respond to him. But at this, like has happened a few times in real experiences of my life, my mind and mouth are now taken over by the Person of God. I am surprised to hear the words coming out of my mouth as dictated by a mind not my own, a strange thing indeed:
“From now on, God’s message needs to be undiluted, unpolluted, and ..”
Punctuating on the adjectives, I am puzzled by the meaning of each. My mind, while running its own course wrestling as to whether or not I am inventing a new word, continues:
The audience falls into a solemn silence. As each reflects on the weight and implication of the utterance, I can feel a work of repentance beginning. This greatly relieves me from the stress of one bringing an “unhappy ” message. (End of dream.)
For the past few days, I have been puzzled by the differences in each of the three adjectives. When sharing the dream briefly with Brother Ben Lowe the next morning, he explained the meaning of the word
"dilute". I am still not sure if there is an English word, “
The Lord told me to write down and freely express my current thoughts with my understandings relating to these two dreams. (Second dream is recorded below). So I will:
- I notice the uniqueness of the gathering. Not being a minister or a leader of any ministry or institution, I have had no similar experience in my real life. When asking the Lord, He impressed upon me the events in church history like the council of Nicaea. I was called into a heavenly council of our time in the Spirit.
- I was surprised to read this in BBC News:
“Some Catholic leaders – particularly in the US, but also some others around the world – have accused the Pope of diluting their faith, and have even called for his resignation.”
- As I am now writing, the Lord told me to examine the three words and share their definitions here:
Undiluted a: not made thinner or more liquid by admixture; b : not diminished, weakened, or restrained in any way : PURE
Unpolluted: not contaminated or made unclean or impure : not polluted, especially not contaminated with man-made waste
Unmixed: not mixed UNADULTERATED, PURE.
(All definitions are quoted from Merriam-Webster Dictionary.)
- Evidently, this is now the “new” standard for the messengers of God. With this raised up, God will draw in the great harvest of the end time.
Dream: Preparing for a New World
This is the second dream I had, just after the first one, in my sleep.
The whole world is now covered by a great flood. Everything is under water except a patch of dry land in the center of the world. It rapidly grows darker and darker. I am driving what seems like a fishing boat, coursing along a great river, leading me back to the land. Nothing has survived. My boat and I are the only things left on the surface of the water.
I am composed, yet also eager to reach my destination, as light is quickly diminishing. With a steady fast pace, I am confident that I will make it in time. The boat is very sturdy and works like a charm at my will, moving smoothly while I am trying to detect the banks of the river on either side, which is not an easy task when everything is dimmed out in the endless mass of water.
I manage to arrive in time. As I safely still the boat along the edge the land, I find that the Father, in a white floating garment, stately in stature, has been waiting for me. He seems to be very solemn in His way of receiving me. His demeanor is a surprise. I had hoped, as in many times before, that He would be happy with my arriving, and pleased with my good efforts. I am proud that I have mastered the boat, and have arrived safely and in a timely way.
But no, not on this occasion. He bids me to stay in the boat, and as a matter of fact, He points me to look at the other side. Before Him, the world is clearly split into two realms. To His right, where the river I came from extends out and where I parked my boat, there are still traces of light, even as dim as it is. But to His left, there is but gross darkness. Somehow, however, I now have the ability to see what the Father sees. I see, through pitch black, another great river. It runs out into distant and endless darkness, which is hovering over the water.
Suddenly, it dawns on me that this is the river along which I charted out from the land. Evidently there was a misunderstanding on my part of the intent of the Father of my journey. I assumed that I was sent out to survey the world, learn to master the boat, and to bring Him a report. With His response, I know intuitively that something important was missing on my part.
As I gaze into the river through the absolute darkness, I begin to see and understand a few amazing things which totally eluded me before this turn of events:
- To my surprise, I have the ability to actually see the banks of the river, which should be hard to detect when covered under a great flood. Also, my sight is not impaired at all by the pitch darkness.
- The boat that I have been driving is no ordinary boat at all. I called it a “miracle boat,” when sharing with Brother Ben. It seems to have its own mind, or spirit, like the chariot of God described by Ezekiel. It knows my thoughts, and is working to inform me, or respond to me as if we are one. It can automatically correct my mistakes if my maneuver is off, or instantly comply with me if my intent is proper and necessary. It is not a machine or a robot at all. Rather, like a well trained horse, this boat knows how to be one with its rider.
- I also begin to take notice of something I had totally missed when I headed out the first time. Deep under the water, there is a forest of overgrowth. These are thorns and thistles that spring up from the river bed. Interestingly, the ground around the river has no such growth, as if it were desolate before the flood. I also see the top portion of this overgrowth was cut off when I drove through along the river. Yet I did not notice this as at all when I first headed out in the flood, when I was eager to survey the world. Also, for clarity’s sake, I think the river on the other side does not have such growth under it, and the ground on either side of it may have vegetation. I am not completely sure of this, however.
Now, the Father motions me to head out again to make another run. This time, He wants me to get rid of all the thorns and thistles. As usual, I know better than to question Him. I apprehensively comply, not knowing how to accomplish this obviously impossible task…
To my surprise, as I kick off the boat, managing to head towards the center of the river course with the help of the boat, I find an amazing thing: even more than being able to navigate, the boat is designed to function like a lawn mower. It is able to eradicate all the thorns and thistles, once I align my will with it. It is obviously more than a machine.
At that, I feel such relief and also a sense of humiliation. How could I have been so ignorant as to not know these amazing powers of the boat at all? It is time for me to get to know the boat anew, and to learn to be always one with it. I am so happy that there is a journey ahead of us, intimidating as it seemed to be before. Now it is a matter of attention, vigilance, and obedience. I know that when the river is plowed, the flood will recede, and the world be populated with new life, but life devoid of the curse of thorns and thistles. (End of dream.)
I think that the meaning this dream is certainly prophetic. It is instructive, illuminating, and self-explanatory. Also, I think these two dreams actually imply the same dealings of God…
If the boat is the Holy Spirit, and the thorns and thistles are the product of a cursed world, then I am but a representation of the chosen people of God through the ages. My first journey is like the one made by God’s people throughout the Church Age. Now, the flood of the judgment and the revelation of God has come (in the Spirit), and the Lord will raise up a people who will heed His intent and His standard to prepare for the Kingdom of God.
Here are few relevant scriptures for further reference:
Genesis 1:1–4 (NASB95)
1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2 The earth was formless and void, and darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was moving over the surface of the waters. 3 Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light. 4 God saw that the light was good; and God separated the light from the darkness. 5 God called the light day, and the darkness He called night. And there was evening and there was morning, one day.
Genesis 3:17–18 (NASB95)
17 Then to Adam He said, “Because you have listened to the voice of your wife, and have eaten from the tree about which I commanded you, saying, ‘You shall not eat from it’; Cursed is the ground because of you; In toil you will eat of it All the days of your life. 18 “Both thorns and thistles it shall grow for you; And you will eat the plants of the field;
Genesis 6:11–13 (NASB95)
11 Now the earth was corrupt in the sight of God, and the earth was filled with violence. 12 God looked on the earth, and behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted their way upon the earth. 13 Then God said to Noah, “The end of all flesh has come before Me; for the earth is filled with violence because of them; and behold, I am about to destroy them with the earth.
Genesis 7:10–11 (NASB95)
10 It came about after the seven days, that the water of the flood came upon the earth. 11 In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, in the second month, on the seventeenth day of the month, on the same day all the fountains of the great deep burst open, and the floodgates of the sky were opened.
Matthew 24:36–39 (NASB95)
36 “But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father alone. 37 “For the coming of the Son of Man will be just like the days of Noah. 38 “For as in those days before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, 39 and they did not understand until the flood came and took them all away; so will the coming of the Son of Man be.
2 Peter 3:3–9 (NASB95)
3 Know this first of all, that in the last days mockers will come with their mocking, following after their own lusts, 4 and saying, “Where is the promise of His coming? For ever since the fathers fell asleep, all continues just as it was from the beginning of creation.”
5 For when they maintain this, it escapes their notice that by the word of God the heavens existed long ago and the earth was formed out of water and by water, 6 through which the world at that time was destroyed, being flooded with water. 7 But by His word the present heavens and earth are being reserved for fire, kept for the day of judgment and destruction of ungodly men.
8 But do not let this one fact escape your notice, beloved, that with the Lord one day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years like one day. 9 The Lord is not slow about His promise, as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing for any to perish but for all to come to repentance.
