I had a dream about 2 years ago. I am posting it here for records purposes and also just to bounce it off anyone out there with any insight.
I have created a special page for this blog entry.My blog is primarily dedicated to believers, and those who profess to know Christ (whether they do or not). I know that the majority of the time, people will find this site, because they are searching for something related to doctrine, or the end times, etc. Usually those are people who "believe" in the saving power of Jesus Christ. However, I believe there are many who read my blog, who are not yet believers. You think to yourself, "What's going on with all this stuff. Is it real? Does this guy really know God? Does he really hear His voice? Does God really love me?". The answer, yes, ABSOLUTELY, to all counts. Please, continue reading...
Back in about 2004 or 2005, I was reading Ezekiel. I reached the portion in Ezekiel 2-3, where it talks about Ezekiel eating a book.
Ezekiel 2:8-10 (KJV) But thou, son of man, hear what I say unto thee; Be not thou rebellious like that rebellious house: open thy mouth, and eat that I give thee. 9And when I looked, behold, an hand was sent unto me; and, lo, a roll of a book was therein; 10And he spread it before me; and it was written within and without: and there was written therein lamentations, and mourning, and woe. Ezekiel 3:1-4 (KJV) Moreover he said unto me, Son of man, eat that thou findest; eat this roll, and go speak unto the house of Israel. 2So I opened my mouth, and he caused me to eat that roll. 3And he said unto me, Son of man, cause thy belly to eat, and fill thy bowels with this roll that I give thee. Then did I eat it; and it was in my mouth as honey for sweetness. 4And he said unto me, Son of man, go, get thee unto the house of Israel, and speak with my words unto them.
The Lord had already revealed to me what this scripture was about. It has to do with doing the will of the Lord, and how it's sweet in our mouth like honey. But, when we deliver a Word to people, that is not a "good" word, it is not so sweet anymore. This is shown in a similar experience that John the beloved had. Please note that I am color coding similar portions.
I think it's critical to understand why we believe in Yashua, and put our hope and our trust in His work on the cross. If we have not experienced a relationship with Yashua, then how can we say that we know Him? To say that you have known Him, and yet you have never experienced Him, or spoken with Him, in some way or another, is like saying you know the woman across the street, whom you've never spoken too, and have never interacted with in any way.
1 Peter 3:15 (KJV) But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear:
Without knowing Yashua, how can we possibly have an answer for every man, of the hope that is in us? Is that even possible?
