I had an interesting dream last night. I wasn’t sure if it was just for me or for the Body of Christ, but I soon got the confirmation needed for sharing. Short & sweet: I was standing/waiting to get on to a train that had not only stopped, but the woman engineering the train (who represented the church in my dream) stood aside to let the ‘top guy’ take over the engine, back it up (literally, like backing up a vehicle with a trailer, only this had miles & miles of cars behind it & needed the only One who knew how to handle this enormous thing at the wheel), turning it around & then letting passengers begin getting on to head in the ‘turned around’ direction. There’s more to the dream, but the point of the dream was about the train representing united churches/denominations in the move of God/something new/on the same track/unceasing work/consistent/powerful/equipping. More confirmation came while reading Anne Elmer’s new book, “Creation Waits for Who?’: “Jesus has been waiting 2000 years for His followers to get it right. Creation has been waiting for the same thing! This generation is the one that is going to ‘just do it!'” (pg. 181). More confirmation came when I was prompted to Google the song that came suddenly into my spirit for lyrics, ‘People get ready, Jesus is coming, soon we’ll be going home’ by Crystal Lewis & instead I could only find, ‘People get ready there’s a train a-coming. You don’t need no ‘baggage’ you just get on board (I had no baggage in my dream.) All you need is faith to hear the diesels humming. Don’t need no ticket you just thank the Lord’ by Curtis Mayfield. This train is heading in the right direction, one with Father’s heart/will & is bringing the restoration that will prepare every tongue, tribe & nation – a multi-generation – a Bride – for our returning King! (Romans 8:13-19). We are to be released in every gifting, skill & calling to flow as an expression of His glory!

“Mark 12:30, ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’
ʺJust do itʺ means knowing His love, knowing His constant presence in our lives, knowing the authority He has, and doing what He has called us to do, as individuals and as a body. Of course there are many more Bible passages which could be included here, but I will mention just one more which sums up what I have been saying. James 1:22 Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says!’  ‘The Sons of God, for whom creation has been waiting so long, will be those who live in constant communion with the Father, who know their calling, who obey in His name, who use His authority, and who are overflowing with His love.'”  (Clarification from  Anne Elmer’s book, ‘Creation Waits for Who?’ pg. 183.)

Additionally, from Anne Elmer’s book, ‘Creation Waits for Who? (pg. 148),’ “In the last verse in the Romans passage above, Paul says: ‘We know that the whole creation has been groaning….’. I wish I knew what Paul knew, because I cannot say that I understand these things, can you? There are lots of people who have seen and heard things in the spirit, and have confirmed what Paul is saying, but personally I have to say it is just one of those things I believe because the Bible says it. I am aware that the understanding of the science of sound is progressing rapidly and modern technology has allowed us to hear sounds we didn’t know existed several years ago. I am sure it won’t be long before somebody plays a recording of what nature is saying to us. Maybe we’ll be surprised when we hear the groans of the earth.”

Sounds like ‘sound healing therapy’ to me! (See previous posts on this topic with Sound Expressions coming soon!)
