This dream also speaks to the prophetic ministry I have been given…
In this dream, something frightening was happening to my mouth. All of my teeth were loose and crumbling, despite my attempts to keep them in my mouth. A woman in the dream who revealed herself to me as my mentor explained saying, “Don’t be frightened, this happens when there is great sin in a person’s life. This is what must happen in order to make restitution to God.”
But I cried, “But what have I done that is so terrible? I try so hard to be good!”
She replied, “It’s the same thing that happened to the prophets of old.”
I walked over to a bathroom sink and began spitting the teeth out, there was nothing I could do, I could not keep my teeth in my mouth and my grieving was tremendous. There were a lot of dead teeth, and I was extremely sad, weeping, in the dream. I thought to myself oh no! I’ve lost all my teeth and everyone will know!
Mournfully, I looked in the mirror and made a grin to see my toothless face, dreading the appearance of my face…But instead what happened was I saw a mouthful of PERFECT TEETH, all two rows of them, perfectly formed, perfectly white, they were beautiful – and I was so very relieved!
As the dream came to a close, I was still very troubled about all the teeth I had spit out, I likened them to dead bones. I didn’t want anyone to know that I had gone though that terrible ordeal, I felt so much shame.
When I woke from the dream, I had purposed it in my heart not to share it, because I was afraid of what people would think. But the truth is, what I was shown has broader applications and it is relevant, not only to myself but also to anyone who calls themselves a Christian. We all have the Spirit of Prophesy if we have the Testimony of Jesus, Rev 19:10; and if we break even just one law of God – we’ve broken them all.
This is why living in the Spirit of Repentance is so critical to our walk:
Jas 2:10 For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all.
