    My Final Farewell

    My Final Farewell!

    Early fall of 2013, I received a very interesting dream that I wish to share with you now. It started with me rushing to get to "formation" or roll call. You see, the setting is a military training base but unlike a typical military training base, this was not located in friendly territory but in hostile territory. The training received at this base was with live fire with hostile forces determined to kill and destroy.

    Apparently, in this dream, I was a military officer and was in a hurry to get to formation. I did not yet have my coat on nor did I have my proper shoes. To appear at formation out of uniform is a serious breach in protocol and i could face disciplinary action. As soon as I arrived, the base commander arrived too. I was out of uniform. Instead of calling me out, the commander came to me and helped me put my coat on and then presented me with a special pair of boots. He told me that these boots were specially prepared to compensate for my unique injuries. When I went to put them on, it was then that I noticed that I had no feet.

    Apparently, I had suffered severe battle injury with the loss of both feet and what I saw remaining was the jagged edges of bone and tissue. Also apparent at the time, the shoes I had were not sufficient and the pair given to me by the base commander were far better and far more comfortable than my old ones. In fact, they seemed to be absolutely perfect for me and enabled me to walk as if I had never had an injury. He then set me aside and handed me my new orders contained on a blood red disk. He then gave me my tickets after telling me that my new duty assignment was to be in Hawaii. I looked at my tickets and the price listed on those tickets were very cheap, somewhere between $223-$228.

    He told me to get my affairs in order as I would be leaving later that day. I left from him, took care of a few unknown details and left to speak to the troops under my command. The message to my troops was entitled "Final Orders" and was a short message that I had just written in real life but had not given a title to. Shortly after addressing my troops, I left for my new duty station. End of dream.

    This is the second of two dreams given to me from Holy Spirit. Both speak of my departure. This second dream was more specific and revealed a number of things that I believe is important for me specifically and for us all. The price of the tickets to Hawaii are significant but as yet, it has not been given to me to understand their meaning. The blood red disk represents the blood of Christ and my new duty assignment of Hawaii, which translates to "Paradise" is for me Heaven.

    I was lying in bed last night, Feb. 15, 2014, when Holy Spirit reminded me of this dream. For the first time, He gave me the meaning of that part where I arrived at formation out of uniform. Instead of reprimanding me and taking disciplinary action against me, He, as the base commander, helped me with my coat, His righteousness and provided for me a new pair of boots He had made for me specifically for my injuries.

    What I take away from this is this truth. No one escapes this life unscathed. Because of injuries I suffered at the hands of the enemy, my ability to walk was hampered and although I had my coat, His righteousness, I was not wearing it at the time. He showed me another very important truth. Where I lacked, He covered me. Jesus promised to complete that work He started in me. This dream reveals that this is what His actions did for me. He "covered" me and did not take into account my failings but covered them with His love.

    This is not to say that we can walk in unrighteousness and that is okay with Him. Actually, there is another verse of scripture that states:
    Psalms 37:23-24 (AMP)The steps of a [good] man are directed and established by the Lord when He delights in his way [and He busies Himself with his every step].24 Though he falls, he shall not be utterly cast down, for the Lord grasps his hand in support and upholds him.
    We have this confidence in Him, though we may fall, He promised never to leave us nor forsake us. So before I leave this duty station, He will have completed that work He promised in me to prepare me for my next duty assignment.

    The next significant thing Holy Spirit point out to me was that message to my troops, my "Final Orders" given to them before I was to leave. I mentioned that this short message was written in real life before the dream. This was a very pointed message addressed to the church at large as a reminder to that which He Himself was calling for us as His Body on earth, to do.

    In the dream, I had authority over my troops just as in the military a commander has authority over those under his command. He gives them orders and they are expected to obey those orders. The "Final Orders" I gave to my troops was more of a message to point out where our true focus should be. While Holy Spirit was reminding me about this part, I was reminded by Him about true authority.

    Jesus has all authority in heaven, on earth and under the earth but His instructions to His disciples was that they were never to do as the unbelievers where they lorded over one another. Anyone desiring to be great in His kingdom would need to be the servant of others. I understand this in the way that we are all to esteem others more highly than we do ourselves and see to their needs before our own.

    The only spiritual authority I can ever exercise in my life is over my own soul and its desires as well as over the powers of darkness. As far as spiritual authority regarding my brethren, whether I am an apostle, prophet, pastor, teacher or evangelist, a leader in any way, is to look to the Father, see and hear what He is doing and saying and share this with my brethren as my own witness. Then it is up to them to do with this witness as seems good to them.

    I am never called to bring another person as a subordinate to me. It has never been given to us to "have authority" over another to require them to do according to our will as regards spiritual matters, church service or any other spiritual governmental matters. We all serve One Master and He is our Master, our Lord as the scriptures say that the government is upon His shoulders.

    We are to speak of what we have witnessed as shown us by Holy Spirit. It is then up to the hearer to hear and do according as Holy Spirit directs them. They are not responsible to us and as such, they are not required by that same Spirit the need to obey us or bow down to us. We are brethren and are called to walk with one another, supporting one another, loving one another and never to have the rule over one another.

    In that dream, even though I am an officer with troops under me, my role is to lead through example and those that follow me, do so of their own accord as Holy Spirit confirms to them the words I speak and the action I take, we are brothers and sisters. It is my responsibility as one who has gone before them in my own life experiences, to share with them of those experiences and show what lessons I myself have learned and through this, demonstrate the truths discovered that they may all benefit. I know from experience what happens in battle and the mindset needed when facing our adversary. These are valuable bits of knowledge and understanding that the hearer will do well to consider, especially when they do not have that experience or exposure themselves.

    Getting back to the Final Orders, Isaiah 58 reveals the kind of attitude of heart we must all have as we continue in our walk with the Spirit of The Lord as we prepare ourselves to engage the enemy of our souls. These principles have been tested and are true and if followed, will enable the believer to not be overcome by the enemy but overcome the enemy and all his tactics. I encourage you all to read this chapter and consider the exhortation shared with you.

    Until my departure time arrives and I am no longer able to speak to you from these pages, we will all meet again in our glorious eternal home as we rise to meet our Savior upon His soon return, and may his blessings come upon you and overtake you and fill you with all power and might through His Holy Spirit and that you seek to walk according that Spirit every moment of every day, fulfilling the promise of Jesus Christ in your lives. LIFE, PEACE, HOPE, JOY AND REST to you all in Christ Jesus our Lord.
