So, one night this week, my husband and I was watching YouTube videos of deception with the music industry and even among our fellow gospel artists. While watching the videos, I felt like MAN, GOD this is exactly why I must do what you told me to do! So, that night I went to bed and I dreamed......... God deals with me a lot in my dreams! I LOVE IT!
Anyway, I dreamed that I was with some prominent people in the gospel music industry. We were talking and singing; just having a good time, and then all of a sudden my nose started bleeding! In the path of the nose blood, clots were coming out. It wasn't painful or anything, but I was like OMG, what's going on?!?!?!?!
I woke up the next morning and the only thing I could think about was how my nose started bleeding, with what I knew were blood clots. This seem to happen for no apparent reason at all! So immediately, I started researching what blood clots and nose bleeds could represent in a dream, prophetically. Mid stride within my research, the Lord said "just look at what purpose blood clots play naturally." What I found out BLEW MY MIND!!!!! What an AWESOME GOD WE SERVE!!!
So, what I learned was that Blood clots can be healthy or it can cause abnormalities.There are platelets in the blood that initiates blood clots. It becomes stimulated when a blood vessel has been damaged, ruptured, and/or bleeding. So, the blood clots form and it rushes to the damaged area to create a plug to reduce bleeding. (WHOOOOOOO!!!!!)
The blood clots forms to heal the damaged vessel and it stays in that spot until the tissue heals. Afterwards, the body degrades the clot and reabsorbs the blood!! AMAZING!!!!!! Blood clots also form when the blood in the body fail to flow properly!! This is sooo significant in SOOOO many ways!
Now, what does this mean in regards to ministry????
Well, its simple! When a vessel of the Lord (believer) has been damaged or is bleeding in someway or another; we who are spiritual, must go (quickly) and restore (Galatians 6:1) - much like the blood clot! When restoration has taken its place and healing is present, the disease of the damaged, (i.e., the blow that caused the damage, the demonic spirit that dwelled in another vessel,) MUST NOT become comfortable and complacent within you- IT MUST COME OUT!!!! Hence, the nose bleed in the dream.
Now, the enemy attempts to be like God and he perverts everything! The blood clots original purpose is to heal the damaged vessel; but sometimes the clot can attach itself to things it was not intended to. The purpose of the clot at that point becomes perverted and manipulated. Then, the very thing that was designed to heal becomes harmful to you and can kill you, if its not properly aligned!
I ADMONISH YOU, Worshippers! Step up to the call of servanthood (ministry) - Someone near you may be damaged, bleeding, and broken because of some incident or some person, but we as believers are to GO, (QUICKLY) and restore! Don't let your brothers and sisters walk around damaged! Work the work of a humble servant and serve as God would have you to! Take the necessary precaution, as well, to avoid the clinging of another individual's issues to your life.
I know without a doubt in my heart that God has called me to work the area of tainted worship - healing and restoring TRUE Worship!
Do you know what HE is calling you to????
Galatians 6:1&2 (NIV) - Brothers and sisters, if someone is caught in a sin, you who live by the Spirit should restore that person gently. But watch yourselves, or you also may be tempted. 2 Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.
Galatians 6:1&2 (NLT) - Dear brothers and sisters, if another believer[a] is overcome by some sin, you who are godly[b] should gently and humbly help that person back onto the right path. And be careful not to fall into the same temptation yourself. 2 Share each other’s burdens, and in this way obey the law of Christ.
Galatians 6:1&2 (AMP) - Brethren, if any person is overtaken in misconduct sin of any sort, you who are spiritual [who are responsive to and controlled by the Spirit] should set him right restore reinstate him, without any sense of superiority with all gentleness, keeping an attentive eye on yourself, lest you should be tempted also. Bear (endure, carry) one another’s burdens troublesome moral faults, and in this way fulfill observe perfectly the law of Christ (the Messiah) complete what is lacking [in your obedience to it]
One of my favorite teachers of the presence of the Lord is Bill Johnson! He is the Senior Pastor of Bethel Church in Redding, California! You will find through out my blogs that I will post videos of his teachings and of the worship within that local worship assembly. The spontaneous or prophetic worship that is released in the house can keep the fire burning in your own personal life of worship! So, today I would like to host one of my absolute favorite videos & I believe it is helpful for EVERY believer, as we live this life! Take a look and enjoy!
Raine's heart is burdened with the passion to share with others different resources that will keep the passion, honor, and value for worship unto God ALIVE!
