“…that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.” Ephesians 3:19
The following is a dream I had last year, on Sunday, October 28th. I will explain the dream as best as I remember it, from what I wrote in my journal, adding my thoughts and impressions from the dream.
I arrived from work, feeling somewhat detached from what was going on. There were people sitting, watching some kind of conference or event that was taking place. We were in some kind of cafeteria or auditorium. There was an event taking place with my church; I believe people from my church were there. I think they were looking through glass to the auditorium, and on the other side of the glass there was a stage, and I know Jan Crouch from TBN was there.
Then I walked down a hall of some sorts, and sat down by a small wooden door. Inside the door Creflo Dollar was speaking. It may have just been an audio recording of him. I believe he was speaking on the primary mission of the church. Maybe he had 3 points about the church’s primary mission.
Then I looked up and saw Paul Nelson’s face, broken, like he was weeping. Paul and his wife are the youth pastor’s at my church, and the directors of our World Prayer Center. It was as if he was longing for all of what God has to be realized, a deep cry of the heart for the fullness of all that God has. I believe that desire could be for me personally, for my home church, and even for the church at large.
Then my pastor came and laid his hands on me. I believe he stood behind me with his hands on my head. The sense and impression of his prayer was that of GRACE, BLESSING, and COMMISSIONING, and even DELIVERANCE too. He was praying a blessing of grace for me, I believe for my deliverance, and commissioning me to fulfill the Great Commission. I believe I heard the words, “Go, go, go!” There was a sense of commissioning and sending. For me, personally, perhaps a sense that I will be delivered in my heart, and sent out to fulfill the Great Commission.
When Pastor laid his hands on my head there was an earnestness in his prayer, I believe, that spoke to something deep in my heart. As I awoke I was weeping – not really shedding tears, but weeping. I was being touched by the Lord.
I think much of the dream is self-explanatory. However, when I shared my dream at my church’s Sunday evening equipping service I believe one of my friends pointed out that the dream speaks of a generational transfer taking placing between one generation and the next. Jan Crouch, Creflo Dollar, and my pastor all speak of the former generation. Jan and Creflo, despite their imperfections, may speak that God will use us even though we are far from perfect. I believe there is a deep desire of God for the church to walk in the fullness of all He has called us to do, both corporately and personally.
