Iron Chains and Elephants

A day before there was a heavy sand storm in the gulf country that I stayed, I saw the following dream. Several elephants with their hind feet shackled by huge iron chains walked together along a path; their progress was laborious with the chains making their forward march difficult. Waking up the next morning, I did not fully understand what the dream meant but I spent some time in prayer asking God to avert any calamity in my life that day. It was only when I drove in my car towards work that I realized what the Lord was hinting through the dream. Half way to the clinic I worked in, I saw a huge mass of dust rising from one side of the horizon and it rapidly engulfed the roads on all sides, reducing visibility to a meter or so in front. I prayed another prayer while maneuvering my vehicle carefully as vehicles suddenly slowed down because of the unexpected sand storm. Many were blaring their vehicle horns to avoid mishaps. But then a miracle happened. As quickly as the sand storm had appeared, so quickly did it clear up too. Everything was back to normal in a few minutes. That afternoon, I praised God for keeping me and my vehicle safe and for his faithfulness in my life, revealing a coming calamity that could have been catastrophic because of poor visibility and traffic congestion. 

There are many disasters that the Lord averts in the lives of those who dwell in the secret place of the Most High. Some of them he reveals to them, the others he just averts without revealing anything. Great is his faithfulness.

For he will deliver you from the snare of the fowler, From the deadly pestilence. He will cover you with his pinions. Under his wings you will take refuge. His truth is a shield and a buckler. (Psalm 91:3, 4)

Death of a Prophet

A Pentecostal minister hailing from Kerala, India, who helped us immensely at the beginning of our (me and my family) spiritual walk with Christ, went to be with the Lord recently. He was gifted with prophesy and we met him around 22 years ago, at a time when we needed answers to many questions (difficult situations) that troubled us. His preaching was strong  and he upheld strong Christian values; the prophesies that he gave regarding our lives enriched us and we were able to overcome several difficult circumstances that we faced. Additionally, when I started preaching in Kerala, he was one of the interpreters, who interpreted my English messages in to Malayalam, the local language. There was a time when I regularly preached in a meeting in his house every Thursday. That was around 15-17 years back. Later on when we started a Church of our own, he visited us once in a while to preach the Word.

I met him last around 6 months back, when I had asked him to meet me for praying regarding a certain issue. He had been sick for a couple of days prior to that and he spoke regarding the same, prayed at my home and left after having a cup of tea with us. I had to travel back to Qatar to rejoin my job after a short vacation in Kerala and a few days later, I got the news that he was sick and hospitalized. After he was discharged and was resting at home, I called him on several occasions to check on his health. He seemed reluctant to tell me what his sickness was; had breathing difficulty whenever I called him and spoke very little. His condition seemed to be worsening as time passed.

During those days, I saw 2 dreams regarding him. One was a dream where I saw his Chest X-ray in which there was a round opaque lesion in the upper zone, which I felt in my spirit was a tumor mass. The morning after I had seen the dream, I prayed for a healing for him. I did not tell him what the Lord had shown me. When I rang him up, his condition had worsened and he complained of dizziness and imbalance while walking. A month later, I saw another dream regarding him, in which he was shown to be with us in our house, talking with us, but when I go in to another room and return, I do not see him anymore and was left wondering in my dream how he had suddenly disappeared.

A few days back, my wife messaged me the sad news that our friend had died. That day, I grieved for quite a while, remembering the good fellowship that we had with him for years together. He was a blessing to thousands, leading many to Christ, mentoring many more. He was a chosen channel of healing and deliverance to innumerable people through the God given preaching and prophetic ministry that he had.

His sudden disappearance in the second dream was an indication from the Lord that he would abruptly depart for his heavenly home.

As he neared his end, I believe the Holy Spirit would have sounded the words of the Apostle Paul in his mind several times.

"I have fought the good fight. I have finished the course. I have kept the faith. From now on, there is stored up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, will give to me at that day; and not to me only, but also to all those who have loved his appearing." (2 Timothy 4:7, 8)

My friend fought the good fight, he finished the course, he kept the faith. Praise God.

A wooden horse

One night I saw a dream wherein I stood before a wooden horse and tried to jump over it to the other side. I tried a couple of times but had no success. I then stood there and thought of times in the past where I could effortlessly jump over this horse. The dream ended with me again and again, trying and failing, trying and failing. After waking up the next morning, I prayed to the Lord that he may not let me fail in whatever matter he had shown me in the dream.

I pondered on the dream later on to know what the Lord was telling me. It was a time when I had, without the Lord's approval, given a large sum of money to a person, but when I wanted the money to be returned, the guy said no. I had prayed for the matter several times, but had received a reply in the negative. This affected my faith and I got depressed that the Lord had not intervened. I tried to muster faith but negativity ruled. I could not jump (my faith was not rising) over the problem (wooden horse) as seen in the dream. Prayers and intercessions took a back seat for a couple of days because of the depression. But since I had prayed regarding the dream that God may not allow me to fail repeatedly, soon the depression was gone and I could pray and worship as before. The Lord moved the heart of the person to whom I had given the money and he returned it.

This dream could also have been regarding "fasting" which had been nearly non-existent in my life those days. Though earlier I could take fasts to bolster my prayer life and humble myself in the presence of the Lord, now because of a few illnesses that I suffered from, I did not have the faith or courage to take fasts; perhaps the inability to jump over the horse pointed to this and when I prayed regarding the dream, a few days later the Lord strengthened me to start fasting again.

God's strength is manifested in our weaknesses as we cry out to him. Praise be to his holy name.
