I pray over my dreams a bunch of prayers every night. It feels like a lot of things go down in my dreams, so praying over them seems appropriate.
Job 33:15 At night when people are asleep, God speaks in dreams and visions. (GNT).
We can get into my prayers over dreams, or some of the amazing things that go down at some other post if anyone is interested. This post isn’t about that. This post is about the spoken message I got last night.
The spoken message I got in my dream was,”With God you either make it or you make it.” Before you speculate what that means, I immediately knew what was meant by it. You either have it good in this life or you get it even better in the next life. Having it good in this life does not exclude you from having it good in the next, but people who have it bad now will be super blessed in the next life.
Before you think I’m bringing a new message, this stuff is Biblical.
Matthew 19:16 Once a man came to Jesus. “Teacher,” he asked, “what good thing must I do to receive eternal life?”17 “Why do you ask me concerning what is good?” answered Jesus. “There is only One who is good. Keep the commandments if you want to enter life.”18 “What commandments?” he asked.Jesus answered, “Do not commit murder; do not commit adultery; do not steal; do not accuse anyone falsely; 19 respect your father and your mother; and love your neighbor as you love yourself.”20 “I have obeyed all these commandments,” the young man replied. “What else do I need to do?”21 Jesus said to him, “If you want to be perfect, go and sell all you have and give the money to the poor, and you will have riches in heaven; then come and follow me.”22 When the young man heard this, he went away sad, because he was very rich.23 Jesus then said to his disciples, “I assure you: it will be very hard for rich people to enter the Kingdom of heaven. 24 I repeat: it is much harder for a rich person to enter the Kingdom of God than for a camel to go through the eye of a needle.”25 When the disciples heard this, they were completely amazed. “Who, then, can be saved?” they asked.26 Jesus looked straight at them and answered, “This is impossible for human beings, but for God everything is possible.”27 Then Peter spoke up. “Look,” he said, “we have left everything and followed you. What will we have?”28 Jesus said to them, “You can be sure that when the Son of Man sits on his glorious throne in the New Age, then you twelve followers of mine will also sit on thrones, to rule the twelve tribes of Israel. 29 And everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or children or fields for my sake, will receive a hundred times more and will be given eternal life. 30 But many who now are first will be last, and many who now are last will be first. (GNT).
Jesus is teaching us that people who don’t have it good down here for health, mental, poverty, just incessant bad fortune, or all sorts of other negative reasons; They may be super blessed in Heaven. I’m of the persuasion that some of us will have super powers in Heaven. Maybe the ability to fly, jump high, run fast, have a super mind, quick reflexes, teleportation, or whatever is possible. We know all things are possible with God, so anything you imagine could happen. So scripturally, I believe those who have it bad down here may have it amazing in the next life.
Blind in this life? Maybe you can see xrays and infrared. Maybe you can see thousands of colors that we can’t even imagine.
Deaf now? Maybe you’ll be able to understand music like other people understand math. Maybe you’ll experience and create concerts for us and God.
Lame without a chance on Earth? Well maybe you’ll be lifting up huge boulders, or jumping from one planet to another.
The fact that many that are last now will have it great in Heaven makes us think things like this are more likely than not.
It goes with my dream,”With God you either make it or you make it.”
Well what about those who have it good now, but become last in the Kingdom of Heaven?
Matthew 11:11 I assure you that John the Baptist is greater than anyone who has ever lived. But the one who is least in the Kingdom of heaven is greater than John. (GNT).
There is no bad places in Heaven. Getting to Heaven is what matters. All you need is to obey Jesus and accept him to get to Heaven.
Now, reread that scripture I posted. Jesus wanted the rich man to give away his wealth to help the poor. We probably shouldn’t give everything away right now or we’ll have less tools to make more. That command to give all was for him and to follow Jesus who was there at the time. If you knew Jesus was the King of the Universe and he asked you to give up all your worldly possessions and follow him back then, could you? That is just a thought exercise.
We’re called to help the poor some though. We should figure out a strategy to help some. I review one here: https://www.reddit.com/
This is the only side of eternity that we can help our fellow human brothers and sisters out of their suffering. If we have it really good in this life, we should not try and make things harder on others so our own status is elevated higher. That is evil. We should instead be good and make less of ourselves to lift others up! In this way, we are no longer the first in this world, but less… and we then may be made more in the world to come. Giving away our wealth now may seem foolish to some, but those with faith it is investing in the next life after we pass on.
My prayer is that you get more faith in Jesus. If you had no faith, may you have some. If you had some faith, may you have more. And if you had more faith, may you be a spiritual zealot out to spread goodness, love and help to everyone. If you can go from 0 to loving everyone, then may your faith be ignited to do so! Amen.
