– I woke this morning from a dream. THE DREAM
: I know that I was witnessing for Jesus. Someone thought I was crazy. They wanted to give me a psychiatric drug of some kind. I talked with a psychiatrist. I reasoned with him that the only thing they had against me was that I was witnessing for Jesus. He seemed to acknowledge that he knew that was true.
In another scene, my husband and I, or my son and I returned to a group that we had been leading only to learn that a woman there had declared herself now to be the leader. And, she expected that we would now do what she wanted. I know that I did some preliminary things in preparation for the meeting, yet once I realized that she had taken over, I decided to bow out. It appeared that she had held an election without my knowledge and now she was shouting orders to me and to my son, in particularly. END
Speak, Lord, for your servant is listening. I read Psalm 75
For the director of music. To the tune of "Do Not Destroy." A psalm of Asaph. A song.
1 We give thanks to you, O God,
we give thanks, for your Name is near;
men tell of your wonderful deeds.
2 You say, "I choose the appointed time;
it is I who judge uprightly.
3 When the earth and all its people quake,
it is I who hold its pillars firm.
4 To the arrogant I say, 'Boast no more,'
and to the wicked, 'Do not lift up your horns.
5 Do not lift your horns against heaven;
do not speak with outstretched neck.' "
6 No one from the east or the west
or from the desert can exalt a man.
7 But it is God who judges:
He brings one down, he exalts another.
8 In the hand of the LORD is a cup
full of foaming wine mixed with spices;
he pours it out, and all the wicked of the earth
drink it down to its very dregs.
9 As for me, I will declare this forever;
I will sing praise to the God of Jacob.
10 I will cut off the horns of all the wicked,
but the horns of the righteous will be lifted up.
: I read this news article: Canceled Netanyahu trip spotlights Israel nukes
- Excite News - Canceled Netanyahu trip spotlights Israel nukes
. I’m really struggling with this because I lack some information that I feel would be necessary to have full understanding, yet I saw these parallels between this dream and this news article:
The article said that “Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's decision to abruptly cancel a trip to a nuclear conference in Washington spotlighted a key sore point Friday in international nonproliferation efforts: Israel's own atomic weapons. The Jewish state wants to help lead the charge
against allowing nuclear weapons to end up in undesirable hands, even when nobody doubts that Israel itself possesses them. An Israeli official said Friday that Netanyahu called off his trip after his government received word that participants at next week's conference would ‘push an Israel-bashing agenda’."
In the dream, I felt as though my son and I or my husband and I had been leading a group and that now a woman took it over and she now was shouting orders at us. My son’s name is David (real life) and sometimes he represents Israel because of King David and the Davidic Kingdom. He also sometimes represents Jesus who is from the line of David. This woman who took over in the dream has a name that sounds like Turkey, so she may be representing Turkey who, along with Egypt, appear to be leading the charge against Israel.
In this article about Netanyahu, it states that he “opted to bow out
after learning that several Muslim nations – notably Egypt and Turkey – wanted to use the summit to criticize Israel for not having signed the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty and renew calls for a nuclear-free Middle East.”
In the dream, when I realized that this woman had now declared herself to be the leader, I decided to bow out. This woman was shouting orders particularly at my son, David, so I assume this has to do with Turkey (and Egypt), though Turkey has denied that it intends to raise concerns about Israel’s nuclear program during the summit and the Egyptian government had no comment, the article stated.
Further on down in the article it stated that, “For years, Netanyahu has been leading
a campaign to publicize Iran's nuclear program, charging - along with the U.S. and other Western countries - that it is meant to produce nuclear weapons. Israel has called for stiff sanctions against Iran, but at the same time has not taken the option of a military strike against Iranian nuclear facilities off the table. Iran insists its nuclear program is peaceful. Netanyahu had hoped to press his case against Iran at the Washington conference.”
Ok, I’m really struggling with this one and am praying much for understanding. So, I’m going through it again prayerfully with a fine tooth comb to see what I’m missing. I just now noticed what it was that Netanyahu was “leading.” He was helping to “lead the charge
against allowing nuclear weapons to end up in undesirable hands,” and he was “leading a campaign
to publicize Iran's nuclear program, charging - along with the U.S. and other Western countries - that it is meant to produce nuclear weapons.”
I just realized that the woman who took over has a name that is similar to the name of the city of Tyre in Lebanon which sits directly north of Israel. Also, this woman in real life lives in the state north of my state. So, that fits, as well. This passage of scripture speaks of God choosing the appointed time. I do know that he has said that he was going to judge Israel and the church which is spiritual Israel. It sounds as though the tables are about to be turned on Israel, and perhaps spiritual Israel, as well. In that case, I would be representing Israel and Netanyahu would be my son. David was a king of Israel. Netanyahu is Israel’s leader. Or, I could be representing the USA with the nation of Israel as our offspring.
I will continue to pray for understanding of this, but this is what I understand so far.
The Lord also woke me this morning with this song playing in my mind: To Seek Your Face
/ Chris Machan and Mike Harland / Arr. Daniel Smith
Psalm 27:8 (NKJV) We have not come to ask You for Your goodness; Though ev’ry good and perfect gift has come from You. We have not come to ask You for Your mercy; For ev’ry morning Your tender mercies are new. We have not come to ask You for direction; For You have ordered ev’ry step that we take. We have come today, before You now to say, Oh Lord, we want to seek Your face. To seek Your face, to seek Your face; To know the deep abiding presence of Your grace. We’ve been invited by Your Spirit into Your holy place To give You praise, and to seek Your face. Now, in Your presence there is peace and calm assurance That nothing separates us from Your love and grace. So before You now we stand, not just to seek Your hand, Oh Lord, we want to seek Your face.
