How much more....
I had a dream this morning that was so profound
that I knew it was from God. This is the general gist of it.
It involved two other people. One was arguing that they wanted
something owed from the other. The one they wanted it from,
was dear to me and couldn't afford it. I wanted to shut the
mouth of the first. I shouted for him to be quiet, and reminded
him of how dear the person was to us. Then all of a sudden
I was quoting over and over again to him. 'How much more shall
the blood of Christ cleanse your conscience from dead works
to serve the living God'
I knew the problem was to do with the person's
conscience being taught to make sure that every penny was
accounted for! His conscience told him that this was the best
and would override any genorosity because it seemsed the best
thing to do!
And in that moment I understood that there
are hang ups and strongholds that can be dealt with so easily
and powerfully by the blood of Jesus. The answer is in applying
it to the conscience. We take on commitments and inner vows
that God never wanted us to take on. And even when we are
born again they are working in our conscience to cause us
to act in ways that keep us in bondage and are a disturbance
to others. The scripture is one of the most powerful weapons
we have got. The promise that the blood will free us from
the bondage of a wrongly trained conscience I believe could
solve more problems than we have ever realised.
...How much more will the blood of Christ,
who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without blemish
to God, cleanse your conscience from dead works to serve the
living God? Hebrews 9:14
Still in my dream state I saw a vision of
a weighing scales. On the left were two heavy weights and
on the right was a small bottle of what looked like anointing
oil. The balance was equal. The bottle was so much lighter
than the weights yet the scales were in balance.
My first thought was that the blood of Jesus
is far more weightier to cleanse ounce for ounce the burden
of our uncleansed conscience. But that didn't seem to make
sense .....something was equal.
Well!..Candy, my daughter in grace, got the
interpretation. Wow, wow!
If I can explain this right. Our conscience
knows when something is wrong because it looks like a big
sin like the heavy weights on the left. But something can
look good but is equally as bad because it keeps us from Gods
best therefore the blood of Jesus is required to cleanse us
from the 'dead works' ... the things that are apparently seem
ok but in actual fact keep us in bondage and stop us serving
God. ... good job Candy
