    My Dream — Compliance or Defiance

    My Dream - Compliance or Defiance

    It was a very short dream. I threw my wife out of my house. She was being defiant and unruly and I told her she cannot stay in my house as long as she remains defiant. Her response, "Why can't I have my own way!"

    In the dream, I saw a kind of living plant I have never seen in real life. This plant was either compliant or defiant. Any part of her that was defiant had to leave but any part of her that was compliant could stay.

    When I woke up, I pondered this scenario. Here is what I learned. God is Holy according to His definition of Holy and in His holiness, there can be no room for defiance or self will. All such things are rebelling against Him and His authority as it does not seek what pleases Him but seeks what pleases oneself ABOVE Him.Anyone insisting on their own way and asking "Why can't I have my own way?" is walking in self will and will be rejected in God's kingdom. Selfishness is at the heart of rebellion as it refuses all instruction, correction and discipline.

    he wasn't used to such outspoken defiance: resistance, opposition, noncompliance, disobedience, insubordination, dissent, recalcitrance, subversion, rebellion; contempt, disregard, scorn, insolence, truculence.

    Cheerful Obedience (Disobedience)
    When we do something, anything, to please ourselves, we are living in OPEN DEFIANCE to God's will. As such, we are showing open hostility to Him and His authority over our lives.

    When we go to Him to see if what we want to do meets with His approval, this is the picture of compliance and pleases God.

    Everyday, we do things, approve of things in our lives on the basis of one or the other, either in defiance or in compliance. Which one are YOU walking in? Can you truly say you love the Lord with all your heart, mind and strength if you do those things that please yourself? Are you in DEFIANCE of Him or are you in COMPLIANCE? It cannot be both. It is one or the other.

    Soon after I received the Lord in 1976, I started receiving prophetic visions and warnings about the future of the church and the United States. I share my visions on my Hidden Manna websites and offer free of charge my two ebooks entitled “Hidden Manna” and “Hidden Manna 2”.
