dream: idolatry & Revelation 17
On May 28th 2018, I received a prophetic dream from the LORD. In this dream I was sitting at a large dining table on a big ship. There were many people sitting at this long table, but I only really noticed the person who was sitting next to me. He was very intimating and I knew, somehow, that he was very rich, very famous and very powerful.
While eating, the famous man was being very snobby and completely ignored me. I was very put off by him and found him very rude. I was disturbed enough that I didn't want to be anywhere near him, so I decided to leave and go outside.
Once outside, I noticed that I was no longer on the huge ship but out on the docks where it was anchored. I walked around the docks and shipyard trying to cool off.
As I was walking around, I noticed something very odd. Lining the edges of the dock where the ship sat, were what seemed like hundreds and hundreds of little 'idol' dolls. They were lined up everywhere! They were about 10 inches tall, and though I could not see the details, they all were similar but different at the same time.
At this point, I decided to go back into ship and give the man another chance. I sat back down right next him and started eating. When he saw me arrive, he seemed very glad that I was back and we immediately started talking. Before I knew it, we were the best of friends and laughing. After awhile of becoming 'chummy,' he took out a comb and wanted to comb my long hair, which I thought was odd, but I agreed.
END OF DREAM
I had no idea what this dream meant, but I knew that it was from the LORD and prophetic. After praying about it and seeking the HOLY SPIRIT, I got an incredible interpretation that I was VERY shocked to receive. Here is that interpretation:
A ship can represent a very LARGE ministry or church. In this dream, the ship represented the Papacy and the famous man, represented the Pope. I represented the Protestant Church. At first we could not eat at the same table because of our differences, and that is why I left. This represents the split between the Catholic and Protestant church that occurred at the Reformation. The Catholic church turned its back on the those who wanted to reform the Church, so the reformers left and the Protestant faith was born.
Once outside on the dock I saw idols lining the ship. These idols represent the idolatry that comes from worshiping, showing reverence to, or paying homage to any other person besides the ALMIGHTY GOD and the LORD JESUS. That is what true idolatry is -- the worship of other gods/people. This is spoken about in the Exodus 20, which is the Ten Commandments:
“You shall have no other gods before Me.
“You shall not make for yourself a carved image—any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth; you shall not bow down to them nor serve them. For I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me, but showing mercy to thousands, to those who love Me and keep My commandments.
In my dream, once I saw the idols, they didn't seem to bother me because I decided to go back inside to see if I could reconcile with the famous man (the Vatican/Pope). This represents modern day and what is now happening to many of the Protestant Churches. They are once again coming back under the 'umbrella' of the 'Mother Church,' despite the idolatry that exists in their doctrine and beliefs.
Just as I was warmly welcomed back to the table with the famous man, so is the Protestant Church being warmly embraced by the Catholic Church. This also includes the Evangelicals and the Charismatics denominations as well! The Papacy is now embracing all religions into order to bring in the end time harlot religion mentioned in Revelation 17. This is all being done in the name of 'UNITY.'
The combing of my hair is symbolic of the intimacy and personal approach that is now taking place with the Vatican in the grooming of the Protestants. This is the moving away from the Reformation and embracing the false teachings, which will ultimately lead to idolatry.
The true believers in JESUS CHRIST must stay true only to the WORD of GOD and not waiver and fall prey to the end time One World Religion which is now being formed!
"Then one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls came and talked with me, saying to me, “Come, I will show you the judgment of the great harlot who sits on many waters, 2 with whom the kings of the earth committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth were made drunk with the wine of her fornication.”
"They have provoked Me to jealousy by what is not God; They have moved Me to anger by their foolish idols. But I will provoke them to jealousy by those who are not a nation; I will move them to anger by a foolish nation.
1 Chronicles 16:23
"For all the gods of the peoples are idols, But the LORD made the heavens."
