A Powerful Prophetic Dream from Denni Roy
" ... that I may know Him and the power of His resurrection, and may share in His sufferings, becoming like Him in His death..." Phil 3:10
The scene opened to the backstage of a play or drama that had just been completed. I had been in this dramatization and was dressed as the lead character: Jesus!
I discovered I was wearing His clothes, I looked in a mirror, & saw my features were like Jesus, my eyes were like His, my characteristics & even mannerisms were like Christ. Inwardly, my heart was being greatly confronted of where I was not yet like Jesus, yet at the same time was being reformed at seeing myself look like Jesus. It was transformational from outside image to inward shifts.
I saw the crown of thorns on my (His) head, blood, bruises, stripes on my (His) body. And realized I (He) was alive & moving by resurrection life...this was the Lamb of God, this was signifying the Cross, the sacrificed Life, alive by the Power of God.
The next scene, I am still in Christ's character and people are drawing near, I become filled with knowledge of Jesus's ministry on earth, become flooded with hearing and feeling the deepest needs in human hearts, am flooded with feeling God's deep knowledge and His heart for each one, each heart is intensely personal to Him. He wants engagement and to interact with real people, real hearts, real issues.
I start calling out and pointing to each person, declaring "The Father wants you, He desires you, He died for you!" Hearts were cracking open at the encounter of seeing Jesus before their eyes....even though it was me in Him and Him in me, in this most incredible union.
End of dream.
The Holy Spirit ministered that the season of suffering many have walked in (or will walk in) is full or power and purpose to work more of Christ within, more union.
As we choose to act like Christ, dying to flesh, carrying our cross during all the "dramas" playing out it will bear the fruit of more becoming like Jesus in a deeper place than we have ever been.
The Church, the Body of Christ will be molded to be His image bearers, we will move out from "playing a part", playing Church and even imitating Jesus, to where we BECOME like Jesus.
This is His workmanship to be wrought within believers. What do we see when we look in the mirror of His Word? Does the image we reflect back resemble Jesus Christ?
The bridge to this deepening union in Christ, to a new depth in spiritual maturity is the fellowship of His suffering...it is not all the bad or heart-breaking things that happen but the choice to fellowship with Jesus in the midst of those things we suffer, it is the choice to peer into His Word in the suffering season. Many times, believers break down, or run, or try to escape at this juncture....instead we are to "Cross" over. Resurrection power will break forth for those who have been in the season of suffering and for those who will go into such seasons. The season of intense testing, wilderness, trials, fires, suffering, persecution, troubles will birth the image bearers of Christ, carrying resurrection life and power.
Oh the thoughts and works of God!!
