I dreamt I was at someone’s house and we were in the basement. I think a prayer meeting was about to start. I knew the people that were there and they were similar in the sense that all were going through great trials. Just then a pastor and his wife I knew and hadn’t seen in over ten years came in the door and down the stairs towards me. (Side note: The last time I saw this couple I had given a prophetic word that they didn’t accept. In fact they had publicly denounced me because of it, as it was word of rebuke and Judgment. They were head of several church’s all over and were well known. I had received several dreams concerning them but in the end I saw a great surrender and they were on a different road all together. In fact they and I became friends again.
As they descended the stairs I saw something different in them. They seemed to have a real glow and humility. I suddenly felt the presence of God and knew I had a word for them from the Lord and told them so. They smiled and sat down. I then began to quote John 12:24 Verbatim to them. They both began to weep and it was as if the scales fell from their eyes. I could see them think through all the trials and loss they went through over the last ten years and a smile came over their faces. He got up to lay hands on me and pray over me. Immediately I felt the presence of God very strongly and felt some kind of healing in me. I knew that the great surrender they went through installed a new level of apostolic authority and they were ready to go forth.
When I awoke I realized it was just a dream. It was so vivid I thought it was really happening.
24 Very truly I tell you, unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed. But if it dies, it produces many seeds. 25 Anyone who loves their life will lose it, while anyone who hates their life in this world will keep it for eternal life. 26 Whoever serves me must follow me; and where I am, my servant also will be. My Father will honor the one who serves me.
The truth is, if your a christian and you are called to service, at some point in your walk you will get buried and hidden away for a long season. The season will remove the dross and hinderances from you producing the fruit your were designed for. Its happening to me now. I dont really like it but its necessary. -EJ Ouellette
