I dreamt I was with Jesus.
He was sitting on a bamboo rafter and later lay down on it.
I sat on the ground holding His feet and kissing it. Then He sat up but did something strange.
His laps extended to the position of His feet and I was still kissing it before I knew it was His laps.
I looked straight into His eyes and asked Him two questions.
The first was: “As man, what was your biggest regret you wished you could change?”
“Judas” He said.
“What was the most exciting and interesting aspect of your earthly walk?”
“The crucifixion,” He responded!
I got a little bit confused at this point…
How could the JUDAS that caused Him pain, lead to the exciting part of His walk (Crucifixion).
Still looking straight into His eye’s, I saw myself entered into His heart and straight to the spot of the regret – Gethsemane.
It was the place of His biggest conflict where His humanity conflicted with His divinity!
At this point I began to weep!
I wept into the physical still sleeping.
I saw the human aspect of Him struggle to accept the Divine aspects of Him.
As soon as this struggle was over and He became one with the Divine side, the crucifixion became the most exciting aspect of His walk and what made it so was the redemption of man!
As He journeyed to the cross, I saw a cup fell and a man robed in white coat stretched to pick it up.
I knew that man would have been chosen instead of JUDAS just looking into the Lord’s eyes.
The man was called Gauntlet in my dream. I asked Him, why didn’t you choose him instead of JUDAS?
“He is far from me,” was His response.
Immediately I understood that the man would never have betrayed Jesus and if he didn’t, the redemption of man would not have been possible.
Looking at Him, I saw the bruises on His chest and head. He didn’t want me to see it so He tried to distract my gaze with some hay he was having, as though a farmer, going to feed his sheep.
I was so concentrated on everything I saw.
His face was marred, the chest was.
I knew the vision was coming to an end and He was leaving for the Throne.
His presence was so comforting and the journeys so educating.
I didn’t want Him to go and I didn’t know I was calling Him DAD till I woke up only to hear me calling out to Him with an outstretched arm with tears flowing.
This vision shaped my perspective afresh about my Jesus!
I wish we all can see Him afresh, then will people stop abusing His Body – THE CHURCH!!
