Sabbath year

Dawn till morning of July 11, 2015, I got a very weird dream of young people my age which includes my schoolmates and classmates in elementary, high school and college falling in long lines (in queue).

I heard a voice saying, “After the Sabbath year (7 years of rest in the Lord), I will pour out my anointing to the young people, they will heal the sick…perform many miracles, signs and wonders in My name…(as of the great commission in Matthew 28)..”

Inside the running field, I noticed that my schoolmates and classmates in high school wore school uniforms and red IDs as I understood were in junior year. They got ready to form a long line like what some other age groups were doing who really need to pass in that area to be tested. I also saw my classmates in elementary, I started calling their names, so excited to see them again.

The queue has no end. The land area seemed so wide and huge. I see from afar young people performing, dancing on the stage. They wore beautiful clothes in white and red with angels flying above them. They looked so wonderful moving in perfect harmony.

I knew that it was year 2008. I travelled back in time so I added 7 years which results to 2015. So 2015 is a Jewish Sabbath year as confirmed. When I woke up, I checked the bible about it and learned from Leviticus 25: 1-7 about the Sabbath year.

(Still in my dream) I was in a huge white building with lots of huge rooms in different sizes, some smaller and others bigger and wider. Inside each room were my college schoolmates and others I don’t know doing different things. In a wide room, I saw a girl doing paper cutting works alone. In other rooms, I saw some other doing other task in pairs, and still in other room some were working by group. But when I entered inside the widest room, I saw a master bed with couples who were still at my age, busy mating.

I went to the other side of the room along the aisle and there I was taken to the open field with lots of young people. I even saw my former college classmates and my sister trying to do a team task not to break their lines. <The end of my dream.>

Points to ponder:

1. We’re given different tasks in this world. Each room with different sizes represents our status in society and how we live our life whether alone, with a partner or within a group depends on us by faith and God’s grace. To cast our cares upon the Lord still is our number one option if we can’t able to do the task by ourselves.

2. Flying angels above the performing young people represents the clouds of witnesses as written in the Scriptures that we are surrounded by clouds of witnesses…

3. Young people indeed are the future of a nation because of their strength. Needless to say, youth of these last days are called to be warriors of God and to be a warrior you must wear the whole armor of God. Read Ephesians 6:10-20.

4. The queue represents the race, our long journey in life and one of the fruit of the Spirit so essential to be developed in our attitude of waiting in a very long line, that is PATIENCE. A price in a contest is worth waiting and pay day is worth waiting and its along the road how we develop that attitude–patience and other fruit of the Spirit (love, joy, peace, gentleness, goodness, kindness..) versus complaining, worry, fret, anxiety, doubt, fear, sin, self-pity, blame, rebellion, self-will, excuses, injustice, guilt, wrong words, reputation…

MEMORY VERSE:

Philippians 3: 13-15 “…but one thing I do: forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God had called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.
