The good man sowed the good seed which was the word of God. In my dream the Spirit said ‘put it all out there. Don’t worry about it going bad. It will not go bad.’ It’s the good seed.
Tares come in at times and to them doctrines passed down in the bible will no longer matter. There are pastors today preaching there is no hell and all are forgiven. They are a tare.
Perry Stone told of a young man in Florida that had a dream so similar to mine. The young man was dying and the Lord took him up to see over a great field of people going into it. They were believers walking in unison. Suddenly, vultures came circling (Mark 4).
They dropped things into the field. Some tripped over those things. Three things happened.
Tares were assigned to some believers to make difficult the harvest. Tares are the bad seed. The second thing, stones were dropped with people’s names on them (stumbling blocks). Some people would hit the stone and fall on their face. Some bumped their toe and it caused an offense.
The wheat and tares grow together til harvest and it will take the angels to separate them. A tare will accept doctrine not in God’s word. They may break from a church but they will take 5 good families with them. Some people are weak spiritually and if the church splits they will follow that tare but the strong will stay and see it through.
Paul said he didn’t ask where meat came from when he ate with Gentiles. He sanctified it by prayer and let it go. He would eat no meat with Jewish brothers to be no stumbling block. Some think they have liberty in Jesus to do what they want and they don’t have concern how it affects others. This is a stumbling block. If you drink alcohol around people in recovery, then you are a stumbling block. You may not go to hell over a drink, but that’s not the issue.
There are things we can do that are ok but we choose not to so we won’t be a stumbling block to others. This is a gray area. Some say its ok to play the lottery, some may just buy one ticket, and others may become addicted. Some addicted have to avoid this and its their gray area. When the bible says no then its no longer a gray area. We just follow the Word.
But the vultures were throwing things in the field to be a stumbling block. The young man saw missiles going out and fire was on the missiles. (fiery darts of the enemy from Ephesians 6). So fiery darts of the enemy are coming against us at all times.
The enemy can place these fiery darts in our minds like oppression, depression, temptations. A thought that burns in us will not go away. Someone did us wrong and we are angry day after day or we want to retaliate. The battle is against tares, stumbling blocks, and fiery darts of the enemy.
The young man said he also saw older women with grandchildren in the field and they held huge shields. Every time the missiles came at them they would throw up the shield to cover them and their grandchildren. He saw some grandchildren playing around and getting outside of the covering and small arrows hit them and wounded them.
One man was hit by a vulture. Instead of using weapons God gave him, he ran. The vulture went faster and knocked him down because his shield of faith wasn’t activated.
Some were hit by a stone with their name on it, but they would immediately get back up and begin to defend themselves. Some stayed down and the vulture would eat the flesh = flesh rose up and they couldn’t defeat the fleshly nature.
The army was getting beat, whipped, disorganized and SUDDENLY – there was a call that came. It called them to the end of the field. They came together and said ‘we will whip this thing’!
They dug trenches to unite. They fought the forces. Then a false prophet came into the field on a white horse. Some followed that false teaching and doctrine. But there was a remnant and they came together. In the heat of the battle the young man having the dream heard a call and looked up. It was the City of God, the New Jerusalem. They knew the battle was over.
The young man said there were seasons of rest and refreshment in the midst of the battle, even with the birds flying. People laughed from time to time. (In my dream I remember that at times we would laugh.) Believers hugged each other and stayed humble before God. NEVER take the credit for yourself. Glorify God. He knows who will make His name great. Keep humility and keep a repentant spirit. Don’t let people’s offences come on you, and don’t be pulled into a battle you’re not assigned to. People will pull you into their struggles if they are offended to make you offended. Humility and gratitude, love and unity.
The love of God is released through relationship. Love covers faults. There is a spiritual blood line joined together by Jesus. We all have weaknesses, attitudes, and struggles. The enemy can’t destroy a church that has love. It is beautiful for brothers and sisters to love together. We don’t have to agree on everything like pre-trib and post trib. We don’t debate it. We follow Jesus and the enemy can’t whip a church.
Pastor Stone said that the Lord told a woman one day ‘men that play together become competitive and men that fight together become brothers’.
We don’t know the tares, but be aware and stay in the doctrine. There will be offences, but don’t be offended. Let it be water on a duck’s back or it will become a stumbling block.
Quinch those fiery darts with the real shield of faith.
Know who and what you are and what God said about you.
In my dream the Holy Spirit was telling us to fill the gaps. The good food represented God’s word and the words He gives to us. He were told to ban together and pray. The Holy Spirit was with us and we surrounded ourselves with God’s word. In this young man’s dream, he saw the birds coming which represented the birds in the bible in Mark. He saw what the birds were doing to the people in the field.
