28. And afterward I will pour out My Spirit upon all flesh, and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions. Amp.
I do believe we have been seeing the outpouring of His Spirit since Pentecost when it fell upon those in the upper room. It has continued and will become greater and greater until He returns.
I spoke the other night about a vision my late-husband Gary had. Now I want to talk about a recurring dream I keep having. I believe I finally received the meaning of it today. I heard a preacher speak about dreams a while back and he said to discern the emotion and the spirit behind the dream. Here is my dream. I have had it many, many times in different ways but always the same thing happens.
I was in a store with some members of my family (always my mother, stepfather, brother, husband or daughter who have all passed on) and this time Betty White (she was young). We were walking around and all of the sudden I am all by myself. I keep looking for them and could not find them. I walk all over the store and finally go to the elevator where there is an elevator man. I asked him if he could announce my name on the loudspeaker and find my family.
So, he picks up the microphone and starts to say the opposite of what I wanted him to say and started to laugh. I looked at him and said, “That will come back on you.” I left the elevator and there was Betty White looking for me and smiling so sweetly. So, I found my people.
I have had this dream so many times and always felt abandoned. This is the first time I found them. The spirit and emotion behind the dream is always fear of abandonment. But this time I believe He showed me the answer is to focus on the good ending with faith instead of fear. I knew the elevator man would reap what he sowed and so would I. I think it was Betty White because she has passed on like so many in my family and her last name is White. I am forgiven for my fears.
2 CORINTHIANS 4:8 We are hedged in (pressed) on every side – troubled and oppressed in every way; but not cramped or crushed; we suffer embarrassments and are perplexed and unable to find a way out, but not driven to despair;
9. We are persecuted and hard driven, pursued, but not deserted to stand alone; we are struck down to the ground, but never struck out and deserted.
