Dreams from the LORD 2011-2012
31 July 2012

Last night I had a dream where I was camping out in a tent. It was an orange tent that was open on both ends—it did not have a floor (I used to have a two-man tent, but it was enclosed on all sides and had a floor). Then Jimmy Swaggart (a well-known American evangelist—especially in the 1980s) showed up. There was someone with him—it may have been his son. He needed some water. I had some water, so I gave it to him. Then I showed him a gas station up the road. I think he went to the gas station to get some more water.

If this dream is from the Lord, then what is the significance of the orange tent? I have never had an orange tent. If you are camping out, I would think that you would want a tent that blends in well with the scenery. Maybe the orange tent means that I don’t blend in well with the scenery, that I am not conformed to the world. The fact that my tent was open on both ends and did not have a floor, means that I am very mobile (I hitchhike a lot), I do not have a certain dwelling place and that I am a pilgrim on this earth.

Hebrews 11: 38: “They wandered in deserts, and in mountains, and in dens and caves of the earth.”

The water that I gave to Jimmy Swaggart is the life of Jesus that flows out of me feeding those who are thirsty for spiritual life/depth. I believe that Jimmy Swaggart represents evangelists and Christians in general.

John 7: 37-38: “In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink. He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.”

When Jimmy Swaggart goes up the road to the gas station to get some more water, I believe this means that he is going to the source (the Lord) for more revelation knowledge.

Mother Teresa of Calcutta: False Christian   6 comments

Dreams from the LORD 2007-2010
29 August 2007

On the 25th of August, I hitchhiked from Kooskia to Boise. I got dropped off in Boise and got something to eat at a McDonald’s restaurant. I read this newspaper article, while I was eating, and it was about Mother Teresa of Calcutta. The article said that during a crisis in her faith, she prayed to the Pope in 1958. She prayed to the Pope? You gotta be kidding me! Only a heathen moron would pray to the flogging Pope! Since I had first heard about Mother Teresa’s work in Calcutta, I had always scanned news articles to see if she ever talked about Jesus. She never did. Maybe she repented of her sin on her deathbed and asked Christ into her life, but I solemnly assure you: if she had the same nonfaith that she had in 1958 when she passed from this life, she is most definitely burning in hell.

Helping orphans or poor people in Calcutta or any other work will not appease God’s wrath–only the Blood of Jesus will. What horrible arrogance and pride to think that your work or effort can save you from hell. And Mother Teresa got a Nobel Peace Prize in 1979–she definitely made peace with the world system–the world absolutely loved her–but did she ever make peace with God through His son Jesus Christ? Again, maybe she got saved on her deathbed. I was never impressed with her life. Now, if she got saved (by grace through faith; not by works lest any man should boast), and later, when she could perceive the Lord’s voice speak to her spirit, and the Lord told her to go to Calcutta to help the poor–well then, that would be absolutely beautiful! That would be called a good work because the Lord told her to do it. The will of man always precedes a work; the will of God always precedes a good work. You can always judge a tree by its fruit.

I remember many years ago–it might have been in 1986 or 1987–this TV news program was interviewing Jimmy Swaggart (a well-known TV evangelist in the 1980s) and they asked him about Mother Teresa. He said that Mother Teresa’s working with the poor in Calcutta would not save her from hell. Let me tell you: the world let out a howl when he said that. How dare Jimmy Swaggart speak about Mother Teresa like that–the world was in love with Mother Teresa (but, of course, the world hates Jesus Christ with a perfect hatred). But Jimmy Swaggart spoke the truth: our works cannot save us; we are saved by grace through faith.

When Mother Teresa fed those poor people in Calcutta, did she give them the Bread from Heaven, that is, the Lord Jesus Christ (and I am not talking about that little cracker that some priest gives out during a so-called communion ritual at a church service)? (I am in constant communion with my Heavenly Father–it is a spiritual communion–it’s not eating crackers in some dead church) Or did she give them the food that perishes? Give people the Gospel first and then give them food for their bellies. Seek the Kingdom of Heaven first and everything else shall be added unto you. When we abide in Christ, we are broken bread and poured out wine (a sacrificial life–like Christ’s death on the Cross and his sacrificial ministry as he walked the earth) to those around us. If we abide in Christ, we can only bear much fruit to feed those hungry hearts that the Lord has placed in our path. If you don’t have a relationship with Jesus Christ, you are spiritually dead and you can only give people stale bread and swamp water. Abide in Christ and people will be drawn toward you and then you can give them the Bread from Heaven.

Hebrews 13: 13: “Let us go forth therefore unto him without the camp, bearing his reproach.”

I John 4: 5-6: “They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them. We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.”
