On 9/30/2022 I had a significant dream that I believe speaks into what we can expect for this Biblical Year 5783. I shared my dream with the Apostolic Team I belong to and together we leaned into the Lord for prophetic insight about the aspects of the dream.
The interpretation was on point regarding my personal situation and I don’t usually share unless I believe it can help someone else and speak to their spiritual heart as it did mine. For the most part, dreams are usually personal and about yourself or your current situation, unless you are a Seer who dreams prophetically. I don’t usually dream but when I do, it’s usually prophetic or God is personally ministering to me in healing and deliverance.
This dream was one of those!
In the dream I find myself in a gathering of believers where I am commissioning a young woman. I was praying for her and anointing her for ministry. Along side her was an older or I should say more mature couple who I was also commissioning to be her personal intercessors. It felt very natural like I have done this before, yet I have not ever commissioned anyone let alone, set apart intercessors for anyone. This scene alone spoke so much to me about order in the Body of Christ which I will talk more about later.
In the dream, I could feel the anointing of the Holy Spirit and His fire all over me, and in that space and time. I was praying with fervency and passion. As I am praying for this couple I say Lord, give them wisdom and courage to pray with boldness for this young woman and may they be of good counsel to her. I return my attention to the young woman and I begin to cry and weep for her. My heart is filled with compassion and intercession for her and I say, “In the name of Jesus, I break off all the residue that’s left from church hurt inflicted in seasons past and I cover you and shield you from the sting of any future occurrences.” As I am praying for her my hand is on her heart and she drops to the floor under the power of the Holy Spirit. I kneel down next to her and continue to pray in the spirit when I notice that her water brakes. She was not physically pregnant so I knew at that moment that it was a spiritual breakthrough. Her healing made way for Labor to commence. The young woman was ready to give birth to destiny. Her purpose can now be fulfilled because she is ready.
Yes, for those of you who know me, you will know how this woman can easily be me. In fact, I believe she was me and my spirit man was the one praying and commissioning her. God has given me dreams in the past where I got to see my spirit man face to face. And wasn’t it King David that spoke to his soul saying, “why are you cast down oh my soul?” I am coming out of a heavy season of transitions and as one of our Apostolic team members put it, “the commissioning is the promise that you will arrive at your future destiny, but also shows your participation and role or assignment in the process of becoming.” My weeping in the dream is my intercession because of the burden I carry from the former season of intimacy. Hebrews 11:11 was shared as well. Like Sarah I will come into a Fuller revelation of what it is that I’m carrying and be able to produce the goods publicly of what was intimately conceived.
But how does this relate to you?
While I do receive this interpretation for myself, I do believe that this dream has prophetic insight into this new Biblical year, which includes the whole body of Christ. It is my personal observation in the spirit that the young woman could easily be anyone in the body of Christ or even the Church herself! Notice that I had the dream in the middle of ‘The Ten Days of Awe’ which this year landed on Sept. 25- Oct. 5, 2022. As we turn another Biblical year I found out that the significance of the number 83 in the Hebrew language is the number for Fullness, Expansion and Breakthrough, making the year 5783 a year of multiplication and fruitfulness. In the dream this young woman comes to the fullness of time in ministry, displayed in the breaking of her water. She breaks-through into another dimension of authority. Destiny breaks-through and Expansion is about to happen as she gives birth to the blueprints of the Good works God has prepared for her. (See Ephesians 2:10) In not-so-many words, she gives birth to purpose. (I love words, don’t mind me, LOL)
A commissioning is the ‘Sending’… it’s to say, “you are a disciple of Christ ready to make disciples of others at the capacity that God gifted you in, to fulfill the personal calling on your life that plays a part in the great work of God on this Earth.” Commissioning happens when you have been processed through God’s order of ascension that He does through healthy relationships in the Kingdom of God. He heals us, equips us, forms us and then sends us to do the work of the ministry. We commission Pastors, Teachers, Evangelists, Apostles, Prophet and even those called to the Helps ministries by the laying on of hands.
Here are some more insights that I hope give you some clarity into what this dream might mean for you. This is a compilation of the Apostolic Team’s Interpretation:
To be commissioned also means to be set-apart and authorized to represent the King in a new dimension of authority.
God hears our cry and answers
Brisy cries and weeps over the young woman, covering her and breaking off Church HURT SO that IT DOES NOT HAPPEN again. God has heard your cries. God has heard your prayers.
Girl gets slain in the Spirit: represents a FRESH ANONTING AND RELEASE INTO THE NOW PURPOSE OF GOD.
*And then her Water Broke which represents Giving birth to something.
NOTE: AFTER the girl WAS ANOINTED her WATER BROKE. SHE GAVE BIRTH; IT WAS THE APPOINTED TIME. THE ANOINTING BREAKS THE YOKE.
Lastly, I want to turn your attention now to this very important piece, the commissioning of the intercessors. In the dream, it felt like when we dedicate babies and people pick out God-parents. I believe God wants us to remember that Jesus sent the disciples two by two. When we commission a person we should commission their intercessors too! No woman or man will be sent alone to do the work of the ministry. And no intercessors will be left alone without the apostolic covering. They too will be set-apart and anointed for the task.
I also observed that when I woke up and thought about the dream I had, I felt to present it to the Apostolic team. I was a little intimidated at first, but then I thought, nope, this dream is significant, and I can’t interpret it alone. The team was gracious and bold. they didn’t hold back. they prayed into it and began to write down what they saw and heard in the spirit. I learned that this is what Unity looks like in the Body of Christ! Everyone shared a significant piece that I needed to hear to complete the work God was doing in me for that moment- because He’s not done with m yet.
The Apostolic team is made up of Apostles, Prophets, Evangelists, Pastors and Teachers, of which I am one. I am finding my place in this order of the Lord. He has called me to Teach in this season and it’s why I believe I had to share this with you. Do you see?? This observation is very important for this time. The church is longing for unity in its members. The enemy continues to bring confusion in this area, many have a skewed understanding of what Unity in the Body of Christ really looks like.
I have noticed that the people screaming the loudest about unity are the most obscure, isolated folks. Why is that? Could it be that the loneliness of their soul is crying out? Why don’t they congregate yet want to see unity? I say this with tears in my eyes and love in my heart, the unity that the soul clamors for looks different in the spirit.
Ephesians 4 is by far one of the most comprehensive scriptures that give us a glimpse into what God expects from us when it relates to unity. firstly, we must keep the ‘unity of the spirt through the bond of peace’. Peace is a key word. When we practice peace we are practicing yielding one to another. When a team works together in Christ we give way to peace. We let peace do it’s work in us, that we can keep the unity of the Spirit. What spirit, you ask? The Holy Spirit of God, verse 4-6 continues with “There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to one hope when you were called; one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.”
I encourage you to look around and ask the Lord to show you if you are in oneness of spirit with the body of Christ.
What does that look like?
- are we displaying the Fruit of the spirit?
- when others observe your life do they know you are a Christian? The word says that they shall know us by our love, the love we have for one another. (John 13:35) How do we show love? by submitting one to another. yielding. laying down my agenda for the agenda of the Lord for us together at the appointed time (in real time).
- Are we being equipped by others? That means are we being teachable and allowing God to do His work in us through the relationships He has picked for us? For this is the will of the Lord as it says in verse 11-12 “So Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers, to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up.”
- Are we equipping others as we are being equipped? For this is the will of the Lord, as it continues to say in verse 13, “until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.”
- Examine your heart today, are you in a place of maturity? so that, like it says in verse 14-16 of Ephesians 4, “we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of people in their deceitful scheming. Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will grow to become in every respect the mature body of him who is the head, that is, Christ. From him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work.
I invite you to read the rest of this Amazing Gem of Scripture which gives us instructions for Christian Living. Allow the Word to be a mirror, however, beware of the temptation to read this scripture holding it up to others. See yourself in it and then reflect on the word UNITY. What role do you play in keeping the unity THROUGH the bond of peace? Are you displaying the fruit of the Holy Spirit and getting rid of malice, slander, anger, bitterness and fits of rage? Beloved, if you as a member of the church criticize others, refuse to fellowship with others, refuse to submit to a leader, or are bitter and full of malice, then you are contributing to disunity.
