I came to know Christ in 1995 and from that day whenever and wherever I close my eyes and sleep. I dream, and sometimes I am scared to go to sleep. We are in 2015 and I am still dreaming. I can write a whole book about these dreams.
I remember dreaming that my colleagues at my work place were in their offices, and it was dark. I was the only one outside and saw in the sky a battle between angels and demons. They were on horses and I could see the weapons they used.
I tried to show my colleagues but I was the only one who could see. After that I was given a cup of oil from above to pour out on myself. when it was empty I gave it back but was told that it was not yet empty, so I poured it on myself until I was wet from the oil, and then I woke up
Florence: "I came to know Christ in 1995 and from that day whenever and wherever i close my eyes and sleep i will dream and sometimes being scared to go to sleep. "
Toni: The day you gave your heart to Christ the enemy became anxious to quickly work on your mind because of who you are through Christ. God shows us dreams for divine revelation and instructions as His children but never to scare you.
A Righteous reverential fear isn't the same as anxiety based fear as in being scared or anxious etc. One thing that may work to do for dreaming discerners like yourself is to always conclude your evenings with calming environments by winding down your mind to reading, listening & reciting Gods promises while confessing them over your mind in prayer.
Biblical Meditation on His words keeps our hearts and minds purely strong against the evil ones wiles and it keeps our minds able to handle when God reveals His messages to us as we rest.
1. "If you lie down, you will not be afraid; when you lie down, your sleep will be sweet." Proverbs 3:24 ESV
2. "In peace I will both lie down and sleep; for you alone, O Lord, make me dwell in safety."(Psalms 4:8 ESV)
3. "The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?" (Psalm 27:1 ESV)
4. " For this reason I remind you to fan into flame the gift of God, which is in you through the laying on of my hands, for God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control." (2 Timothy 1:6-7 ESV)
Our Heavenly Father desires that you not only have a sound sleep but a restorative confidence in Him while you rest to handle all that He wants to reveal to you!
Florence: "we are in 2015 and is still dreaming. i can write a whole book about these dreams."
Toni: This is a good point! Keep a dream journal and pray over them as well as any
interpreted info you receive from God in it so you have a running log of all the info:-)
Florence: "i remember i dreaming that where i was working, my colleagues were in their offices and it was dark. i was the only one outside and saw in the sky a battle between angels and demons."
Toni: The darkness inside the "offices" & you being outside along with you being the only one able to see reveals a detail that you are called as Gods light to shine to lead others out of the darkness around you.
The workplace is the perfect battle ground to walk the walk so to speak because it's in those arenas your true character is developed and tested for others to see as a true example of our savior Jesus Christ:-)
The angels and demons fighting in your dream is the atmosphere you are in and the battle definitely is a spiritual one first!
So being mindful of your environment is not to fear but be confident in Jesus as well as being prayed up, spiritually fed by eating Gods word and being prepared for the battle you are being shown about.
The battle field preparation is taught to us by the Apostle Paul.
"Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil.
For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.
Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm.
Stand therefore, having fastened on the belt of truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and, as shoes for your feet, having put on the readiness given by the gospel of peace.
In all circumstances take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming darts of the evil one; and take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God, praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication.
To that end keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints, and also for me, that words may be given to me in opening my mouth boldly to proclaim the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in chains, that I may declare it boldly, as I ought to speak." (Ephesians 6:10-20 ESV)
We are told in Gods word that the fight is not one of flesh and blood but against spiritual wickedness in high places! (Ephesians 6:11)
We also can rest assure that we are on the winning team & can rely that Jesus finished it all at the Cross. Remind the enemy that your confidence is not in the flesh but in the blood that Jesus Christ shed for your salvation!
Florence: "they were on horses and i could see the weapons they used. i tried to show them but i was the only one who could see.
after that i was given a cup of oil from above to pour out on myself. when it was empty i gave it back but then was just told that it was not yet empty so i poured it on me and later i was wet from the oil and then i woke up."
Toni: The study of horses in the battle is indicative of definitely the end times to come but being saved & in relationship with our Jesus frees His people from fearing His return.
The study of the horses in Revelation for instance foreshadows the angelic battle to come but also brings to light that spiritual warfare takes place! We also know from study that we are in war as ambassadors for Christ!
"Now I watched when the Lamb opened one of the seven seals, and I heard one of the four living creatures say with a voice like thunder,
“Come!” And I looked, and behold, a white horse! And its rider had a bow, and a crown was given to him, and he came out conquering, and to conquer.
When he opened the second seal, I heard the second living creature say, “Come!”And out came another horse, bright red. Its rider was permitted to take peace from the earth, so that people should slay one another, and he was given a great sword.
When he opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature say, “Come!” And I looked, and behold, a black horse! And its rider had a pair of scales in his hand. And I heard what seemed to be a voice in the midst of the four living creatures, saying,
“A quart of wheat for a denarius, and three quarts of barley for a denarius, and do not harm the oil and wine!”
When he opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature say, “Come!” And I looked, and behold, a pale horse! And its rider’s name was Death, and Hades followed him. And they were given authority over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword and with famine and with pestilence and by wild beasts of the earth," (Revelation 6:1-8 ESV).
Lastly, the oil you were using may be a symbolism relating to Gods Holy anointing upon you to prophesy to the nations about His gospel! The ability to discern and see Godly insight is definitely a God given spiritual gifting that is purposed to equip the saints & minister to the lost the heart of God by His divine leading before His return!
