One Richard’s dream-A A +A

IT WAS an honor to borrow the word “theospective” from John Paul Jackson of Streams Ministries and enrich the personal vocabulary. Theospectivity or the approach taken in decoding the message in a dream by adapting the divine perspective is the key to understanding God-given dreams. Knowing the language, context and symbolisms God or preferably Elohim uses enables one to remove the noises and distortions from the message which could be: personal and cultural biases or other subjective matters inherent in or acquired by the receiver through tradition, religion and education.
Now for a dream by Richard: he sees one male and one female whose skin colors were dark singing a duet on a stage and they sang a familiar beat typically sung my black Americans. It was soul music. In the dream, he was impressed they were singing to raise funds for a child with leukemia. Richard wakes up hearing the refrain of the song, “Dance with my Father” playing in his head.
The central theme of this dream is the type of song that was sung. Black Americans are known for soul music. The soul consists of the mind, intelligence and emotions. These are the faculties used for rational thinking. Singing music from the soul means that high praises or work addressed to God comes from the mind.
The stage means that your work is public in nature or something which the public sees. Two singers mean that there is a partnership in the work done.
Theospectively, a child symbolizes God’s blessing. A child suffering from leukemia means your blessing is broken by the character of this malignant disease. The Dream Giver shows you the work by a partnership of minds has not brought the fruit desired and your soulish work will not heal the disease. Known also as cancer of the blood because the WBCs destroy the RBCs, leukemia in the dream could mean your blessing suffers internally because there is an ongoing spiritual battle in your midst where death-causing parts annihilate life-giving co-equal parts.
The Dream Giver provides the solution. From the lingering words in your dream’s epilogue, the spiritual answer has been given. As loud as the voice that gave the commandments in Sinai, the Dream Giver gives you His direct word - Dance with my Father. Theospectively, dance is a form of praise. In 2-Sam.6, King David danced. His wife Michal despised him for dancing publicly. She bore no child until her death. Allegorically, she was without a blessing.
We don’t see Catholics dancing in the Holy Mass where everyone ought to be solemn; but I’ve seen charismatic Christians dance in praise during their worship services. You can still be a pious Catholic but dance like a Charismatic. And Father? Yahshua (Jesus in Hebrew) instructed His followers to address Elohim as their “Abba” or Father in prayer. In Hebrew, the father is the strength of the house. To praise Him is to make Him your strength.
With that, the Dream Giver exhorts you now to search your heart. There may be former resident “theologians” there. Fire them. Embellish your spirit with the Truth. Learn to praise Elohim. From the heart or your spirit man which is the light of the Lord (Prov.20), give praise in the Truth. Praise creates an interface with God’s Spirit and healing results from this supernatural communion. There is the promise that broken blessings are restored to wholeness. Yahshua said, “I came that they might have life and may have it abundantly (John.10).”
Great dream! Thank you for sharing this dream. Have life, Richard. Your night mystery was decoded!
