They are Dreaming Dreams!
God will pour out His Spirit on ALL flesh. No exceptions, and no exclusions
Consider this scripture:
Joel 2:28 And it shall come to pass afterward, [that] 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:
All flesh - there are no exceptions or no exclusions. God will move in places where we least expect God to move. To those people who dare to tell God where and how He must move, He will not be dictated to in this matter. The Word is clear. God will pour out His Spirit upon all flesh, and this includes gay people.
And in the second year of the reign of Nebuchadnezzar, he dreamed dreams,
wherewith his spirit was troubled, and his sleep brake from him.
I was traveling from London to Miami recently. On board as I was reading this scripture, the Holy Spirit started to speak to me about this. We tend to forget that the king, who did not know or serve God, was the one who had the dream. We are so used to focusing on Daniel who interpreted this dream. But the truth is that the king, Nebuchadnezzar, had this dream to start with. God revealed something to him about the ages to come. This dream disturbed him. He was troubled. He did not rest until he decreed that his council of wise men come and tell him what he had dreamed and the interpretation. Should they fail, they would be executed.
God said He was going to pour out His spirit upon ALL FLESH, the saved AND the unsaved. This ALSO includes gay and straight, presidents and peasants. God said that this has already begun, and that our political leaders are troubled. Our presidents, governors, prime ministers and other officials have started to dream. They are dreaming dreams as I write this. God is revealing to them details of things to come. They are troubled and do not know what these dreams mean. They have nowhere to go and nobody to consult to interpret these dreams for them. That is because the church is deceived and asleep.
God is asking where the Daniels of this age are to do that. These leaders SHOULD turn to the church just as Nebuchadnezzar turned to Daniel for council and direction.
Dear people of God, God is asking US to begin to become spiritually aware and sensitive. We need to be God's voice to these leaders. We need to know the gifts of the Holy Spirit, and we need to flow in them. The world is going to come knocking on our doors for answers, and we are asleep. Jonah was asleep on the sinking ship while trying to run away from God. The world went into a state of panic on the sinking ship, and Jonah was eventually thrown overboard. Unless we wake up and hear their call we are going to get thrown overboard and we will end up in the belly of the whale for a season. We can still turn things around.
Come on people of God. Let us WALK with God, let us hear from God, let us seek God for the answers so that when the world comes beating down our doors, we will give them God's timely and appropriate word.
I pray we will hear the voice of God and obey.
