Jas 4:8-10 Come close to God, and he will come close to you. Clean your hands, sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded people! Wail, mourn, sob! Let your laughter be turned into mourning and your joy into gloom! Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up. (CJB)
This morning (3/7/13) I had a very long dream, and so I am going to simply summarize what I was shown. The dream was about people separating themselves from the things of the world.
What the Lord is showing me, is that there are people who are beginning to make that choice, or having been making that choice, or will be making that choice to separate themselves from the things of the world, and they understand, that this also means choosing between even their own families, and their children, their brothers, sisters, husbands, wives – and Yeshua.
This means if their family and friends choose to do things that are offensive to our Savior, and they know that it’s wrong, then that person has to say, “I”m sorry, I can’t join you.” It’s like that.
They have to make that choice, that no matter what the people in their lives are participating in, they are going to choose Yeshua, they are going to wash themselves, and allow themselves to be washed by Him.
It’s wonderful. It’s a tough road, I know that it is, but, it’s a wonderful choice to make, because when we begin to draw close to the Lord like that, He draws very, very close to us.
King James Version
Mat 19:28 And Jesus said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That ye which have followed me, in the regeneration when the Son of man shall sit in the throne of his glory, ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.
Mat 19:29 And every one that hath forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my name’s sake, shall receive an hundredfold, and shall inherit everlasting life.
