Kathy: United States
As I was on my way to a doctors appointment I saw a large grave yard in every field we passed by. As we got closer to our exit on the highway each graveyard contained less and less grave stones.
Then the last field, as we entered the highway, only had one gravestone in it. The stone was of white marble, surrounded by a bright light and upon the stone was the name, Bishop, and the dates, October 2014 to December 2015. Then the vision ended.
I asked the Lord what it meant, but He hasn't answered. Does anyone know what the word Bishop may mean?
Interpretation by Toni
Kathy: "As I was on my way to a doctors appointment I saw a large grave yard in every field we passed by."
Toni: A "field" is referenced in Matthew 13:38-43 as "the world" the graveyard you were passing was the spiritual condition of this world as being that of forever separated for eternity, w/o accepting Christ.
" The field is the world, and the good seed is the sons of the kingdom. The weeds are the sons of the evil one, and the enemy who sowed them is the devil.
The harvest is the end of the age, and the reapers are angels. Just as the weeds are gathered and burned with fire, so will it be at the end of the age.
The Son of Man will send his angels, and they will gather out of his kingdom all causes of sin and all law-breakers, and throw them into the fiery furnace. In that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
Then the righteous will shine like the sun in the kingdom of their Father. He who has ears, let him hear." (Matthew 13:38-43 ESV)
Kathy: "As we got closer to our exit on the highway each graveyard contained less and less grave stones."
Toni: The highway possibly symbolizes "your" charted directional destiny by God that you are assigned to do. As you engage those assignments through doing what God has called you to do the world has less souls being lost to the enemy and more for Gods kingdom.
Kathy: " Then the last field, as we entered the highway, only had one gravestone in it."
Toni: The last field of the dream being one gravestone left may be symbolic for you to understand that the number one means " the beginning" or "new beginning."
As you move in your gifts by faith leaning on Gods support you are also being made new. He promises us in His word that He that hath begun a good work in us will continue it until Christ returns!
Go back to the beginning of your life dreams from a child and allow your inner dreams to be rejuvenated by feeding on our Heavenly Father's Words to build your faith even stronger as you pray & seek His guidance here.
Kathy: "The stone was of white marble, surrounded by a bright light, and upon the stone was the name, Bishop, and the dates, October 2014 to December 2015."
Toni: The marble stone with a bright light may symbolize your ministry calling as you yield yourself to God by leading the lost souls of this world to Christ.
A stone is strong and unmovable. The dates are indicative that your time of ministry level is about to elevate as you pray, seek and move in His directional paths of restorative healing in your own personal walk as in the place you were heading to in your dream (doctors apt).
Your leadership mantle is one of many spiritual gifts being revealed here because as you go through your own trials in life others are watching & learning from you. It's apart of the leadership mantle God has given you.
Kathy: "Then the vision ended. I asked the Lord what it meant, but He hasn't answered."
Toni: His voice is small and still which is heard and made clearer as we seek Him out in His word daily. Our bodies are His temple the church which is being made ready each day we yield to Him.
Our first assignment is truly to understand who is living on the inside of us for confidence in His calling upon us to be used effectively.
Kathy: "Does anyone know what the word Bishop may mean?"
Toni: Bishop means a "spiritual overseer" or "spiritual leader" the scripture that correlates to this context appears in Acts...
"Pay careful attention to yourselves and to all the flock, in which the Holy Spirit has made you (overseers), to care for the church of God, which he obtained with his own blood.
I know that after my departure fierce wolves will come in among you, not sparing the flock; and from among your own selves will arise men speaking twisted things, to draw away the disciples after them.
Therefore be alert, remembering that for three years I did not cease night or day to admonish every one with tears.
And now I commend you to God and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up and to give you the inheritance among all those who are sanctified." (Acts 20:28-32 ESV)
Toni: So Kathy as you travel your journey path to restoration & leadership elevation let your light shine bright and tell your story to others to lead them through their darkness into perfect wholeness in God!
In doing this you will lead many out of the pit of destruction into Gods glorious light. Don't hold back, share your testimonies!
