Do not eat and drink in dreams! You will be hungry and thirsty as before.
Prophet Isaiah says:
“And it will be as when a hungry man dreams- And behold, he is eating; But when he awakens, his hunger is not satisfied, Or as when a thirsty man dreams- And behold, he is drinking, But when he awakens, behold, he is faint, And his thirst is not quenched…” (Isaiah 29:28)
This site is dedicated to those who are burdened and feel emptiness in spite of following Jesus.
Why are we so hungry and thirty even if we are eating and drinking the word of Jesus for long? That’s because we are doing so in dreams.
What does it mean?
It means that we are interpreting the Scripture as the moral and ethic law of men to obey and labor, not as the life-giving words of God. Basically, we are destined to read the Scripture as ethics of this world until we meet life-giving Jesus in person who will appear to us as an apostle who has the spirit of Christ.
Jesus Christ is the Savior.
He came on earth in the flesh and saved his disciples by leading them for three and half years, and He was crucified and was resurrected in each disciples as the spirit of Christ on Pentecost.
By this resurrection of Jesus in each of the disciples, they received the same life of Jesus and could do what Jesus did. Thus, the disciples were saved and born again with new life. Now, they became apostles sent by Jesus Christ.
Apostle Paul says as follows:
I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ lives in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.
At Apostle Paul’s age, Paul was playing the role of the incarnated Jesus and gave salvation and sinless life to his church members, because he had the spirit of Christ in him. That is, through Apostle Paul, his church members were saved and received new life even though they could not meet the Jesus Christ Himself in the flesh.
Likewise, at our age, we cannot meet the incarnated Jesus Himself, but we can meet one of the apostles like Paul around us. And he, playing the role of Jesus Christ, will give us salvation and new life because he has the spirit of Christ. We are to meet an apostle around us if we want to receive true salvation and sinless life.
Consider that the promised forgiveness of sin by the Scripture is once-and-for-all forgiveness through Jesus, which is completed by giving sinless life to us. If you realize you sin every now and then while believing in Jesus, then your current salvation and forgiveness of sin are misguided somewhere, because that is not the once-and-for-all forgiveness of sin given by Jesus.
If we believe in Jesus without meeting Him as an incarnated person, that is, an apostle in our case, we’ve got to believe in Him in dreams and consequently are not satisfied.
The apostle will let us know the life-giving meanings of the Scripture. And through him, we too will have the sinless life of Jesus and live doing what He did naturally. This is the man who really follows Jesus.
Why spend money on what is not bread, and your labor on what does not satisfy? Listen, listen to me, and eat what is good, and your soul will delight in the richest of fare. (Isaiah 55:2)
Come! Let us have awakenings to the Scripture.
We will be satisfied in Jesus at last.
