Prophetic Word – It’s So Subtle

This prophetic word is based on a dream I had over 3 weeks ago.  It is a warning to the church. I was waiting for the Lord to unpack it for me some more before I shared it.  I believe this is for the season we are now entering.

I pray that as you read this, God will arrest your spirit if you have already fallen into this and you will know to turn away from it.  And if it hasn’t already happened that the Holy Spirit will put a check in your spirit when something is not right.

I won’t give you all the details of the dream or it will come across as rambling.  I’ll just hit to main points.

Subtle – adjective

1. fine or delicate in meaning or intent; difficult to perceive or understand.
2. delicate or faint and mysterious.
3. requiring mental acuteness, penetration, or discernment.
4. characterized by mental acuteness or penetration.
5. cunning, wily, or crafty.

I was an observer in this dream and I noticed this little outdoor type marketplace/restaurant setup.  They have many of these in downtown cities all over the world, and especially in Europe.  It’s these little quaint walkways with these cafes and restaurants with the staff standing outside with menus inviting you to come in.

There was this restaurant that was new.  They had just opened for business and their goal was to fill as many tables as possible because they needed to get the word out and get as many people as possible to eat in that restaurant.  They were offering the food for free!  Just imagine you walk into this area and all the other restaurants you have to pay for the food but this one is free and they say this is a promotion as a part of their grand opening.  Of course, everyone was going in there to eat.  They were quickly filling the tables and then turning them over to seat another group very fast and so on and so forth.  Turning over the tables many times each day.

The problem is that the plan was a sinister one.  There was something in the food.  This food had the ability to alter people’s perception/DNA (I don’t know exactly how or what but people were being altered from eating it).  So that when they left they were not the same person.  They didn’t think the same.  As soon as the food got into their system they were like drones/robots with an inability to think rationally or clearly.  Once they ate the food they were changed.  This restaurant wanted to give this food to as many people as possible because the more people they could infect the better it was because they would have the ability to control large groups of people and eventually the entire population!

As I stood there watching them I just saw that these people went in one way and came out different.  Their brain was not functioning the same they were completely warped but they didn’t even know it.  They thought they were the ones that had been “enlightened” not realizing this was something that came upon them once they ate the food.

Then I see this lady or a man (I’m not sure) who comes along and they are also watching what’s going on too and they are picking up on the fact that the food is altering the people.  So she gets really upset and starts coming up with a plan to save these people.  So she gets a food service truck (they deliver food supplies usually to the back of a restaurant) and she pretends that she’s one of the suppliers because now she’s trying to sneak untainted food into the restaurant to stop what is happening with the customers without saying anything to the owners of the restaurant.  The goal being that the restaurant would serve her food and not realize that it wasn’t their usual shipment.

Well, instead of just letting her in the security asks for her documents to go check with the owner.  At this point she realizes they are going to find out what she’s doing and kill her so while he’s gone to check the documentation she runs out of the truck and starts to run away.  Somehow we knew they were a big organization and they would kill her if they knew she had figured out what they were doing.  They couldn’t afford for anyone to get away that knew the truth.

That’s when I moved from being an observer just watching what was happening to helping this woman hide.  We’re running from place to place trying to find a place to hide (this is where I shorten the dream, it would’ve been rambling because we went to many places).  While we are going here and there they (the restaurant people) are also going to many places trying to find her. When she asks the people to hide her if they find out what she did they would call the same people from the restaurants and tell them where she is because of money.  They were being paid to turn in anyone who would speak out about their restaurant/business.  It was hard for us to find a place to hide her because people were either going after the money or they ate the food and so their minds were altered and couldn’t see the truth.

We eventually had to go into some underground looking community.  A place where you would imagine homeless people would be hanging out eating out of trash cans.  They were dirty and you could tell had nothing.  But this was the only place that became safe for her to hide.  I felt peace leaving her to hide there.  Then I left her and went about my way and then I woke up.

The problem with deception is that you don’t know you’re being deceived.

The dream is about deception.  People being deceived and taking in something that was so dangerous it had the ability to completely alter the way they see things.  The problem is that once they ate this food they didn’t even know they had changed.  And anyone that came to tell them or warn others that this was dangerous was being chastised and killed (words of the mouth) for doing so.  Their goal was to infect everyone.

When you have dreams and you are eating it means that you are forming a covenant with something or someone (the person you are eating with).  So you need to be very aware so that you cancel any dreams or covenants that are being made in your sleep through eating.

I believe this dream can have many applications for today as well as in the future.  The first thing that came to my mind was a new church/new movement or doctrine that was going to arise during this pandemic that was going to be very dangerous and people won’t even be able to tell on the surface how damaging it is.  It will appear to help and “feed” many but in the end it will be pure deception and evil.  After sitting on this for a few weeks, I believe it can have more than one interpretation. Psalm 62:11 says God said one thing but he (David) heard two.  That means God can take one dream/vision/message and it has more than one application and all of them are right! I’ve also found that in one season a prophetic word/dream will have one meaning for me but when I revisit it a year later it means something completely different, and it is still correct. The truth is when something comes from the Spirit of God it is living and active.  It never dies. I’m not saying it is the bible but the same One who breath it will make it alive in the right season.  If you happen upon a prophetic word on this site from 3 years ago you may find it still speaks to you today.  That’s because if it really came from the Spirit then it never dies and will speak to whomever finds it in the moment He wants them to find it.

Whatever interpretation you land on for this dream, please remember this, one important key is when you figure out what is really going on need to seek the Lord on how you should be handling it instead of just trying to blow the whistle or tell as many people as you can.  These same people you’re trying to warn may not believe you because they may be under the influence of that same spirit.  And, God will have a better way of dealing with this instead of you taking matters into your own hands and handling it the way you think it should be handled.  Also, remember one of the motivating factors for those who were not yet under the spirit was money.  The second thing is that some of you will have to take on the role of the observer.  You know what is going on but you need to stand back, collect the Intel,  and wait until God shows you what to do you may have to end up helping people who spoke too soon!

I asked the Lord for scriptures on this and got two.  He told me to read 1 Kings 18

1 Kings 18:19 

Now therefore send, and gather to me all Israel unto mount Carmel, and the prophets of Baal four hundred and fifty, and the prophets of the groves four hundred, which eat at Jezebel’s table.”

To put it in context, this is the story of Elijah and the false prophets when they had the showdown (1 Kings 18).  But notice it says that these prophets eat at Jezebel’s table.  They were completely infected by her lies.  Or was it the other way around?  Perhaps she got infected by them?!  Eating forms covenants!

The next person in this story that you need to pay attention to is Obadiah.  Please read the whole chapter.  Obadiah was the administrator in Ahab & Jezebel’s household BUT he was a devout follower of the Lord.  He was in the palace and worked for them but he wasn’t in accord with what they were doing.  So God used Obadiah to hide the 100 true prophets of God and feed them!!!  Praise God.  He was the observer, that turned out to be the one hiding and helping people.  Praise God.  Some of you will need to take on this role.  Watch & Pray and wait for God to tell you when you need to move and what you need to do.  Ahab and Jezebel had no idea that their own administrator was helping the prophets of the Lord, just as how those people in the restaurant had no idea I existed and was helping that woman find a place to hide.  I kept my mouth shut.  You have to remain silent.  Not because you endorse it or even that you are afraid but because somewhere in your heart you need to understand that God has a reason for allowing you to be in a place and know what it is that you know.  It has a purpose.  And, when the time is right HE will show you why you needed to know that, what you need to do and when you need to act.  Not because you know a thing means you need to say a thing.  Do you realize that the king who Esther married didn’t even know she was a Jew?  NOBODY knew!  Until.  Until…God SAID…open your mouth Esther.  Silent on purpose for a purpose.

The 2nd story is quite sad and it is lesser known about a young prophet.

1 Kings 13:6-10

Then the king said to the man of God, “Intercede with the Lord your God and pray for me that my hand may be restored.” So the man of God interceded with the Lord, and the king’s hand was restored and became as it was before.

The king said to the man of God, “Come home with me for a meal, and I will give you a gift.”

But the man of God answered the king, “Even if you were to give me half your possessions, I would not go with you, nor would I eat bread or drink water here. For I was commanded by the word of the Lord: ‘You must not eat bread or drink water or return by the way you came.’” 10 So he took another road and did not return by the way he had come to Bethel.

 

From this we see that this man of God, does hear from God and God clearly answers his prayers.  He tells the king what the Lord said that he cannot go home and eat with him and he has to take another way home.

1 Kings 13:11-24

11 Now there was a certain old prophet living in Bethel, whose sons came and told him all that the man of God had done there that day. They also told their father what he had said to the king. 12 Their father asked them, “Which way did he go?” And his sons showed him which road the man of God from Judah had taken. 13 So he said to his sons, “Saddle the donkey for me.” And when they had saddled the donkey for him, he mounted it 14 and rode after the man of God. He found him sitting under an oak tree and asked, “Are you the man of God who came from Judah?”

“I am,” he replied.

15 So the prophet said to him, “Come home with me and eat.”

16 The man of God said, “I cannot turn back and go with you, nor can I eat bread or drink water with you in this place. 17 I have been told by the word of the Lord: ‘You must not eat bread or drink water there or return by the way you came.’”

18 The old prophet answered, “I too am a prophet, as you are. And an angel said to me by the word of the Lord: ‘Bring him back with you to your house so that he may eat bread and drink water.’” (But he was lying to him.) 19 So the man of God returned with him and ate and drank in his house.

20 While they were sitting at the table, the word of the Lord came to the old prophet who had brought him back. 21 He cried out to the man of God who had come from Judah, “This is what the Lord says: ‘You have defied the word of the Lord and have not kept the command the Lord your God gave you. 22 You came back and ate bread and drank water in the place where he told you not to eat or drink. Therefore your body will not be buried in the tomb of your ancestors.’”

23 When the man of God had finished eating and drinking, the prophet who had brought him back saddled his donkey for him. 24 As he went on his way, a lion met him on the road and killed him, and his body was left lying on the road, with both the donkey and the lion standing beside it.

Now here it is an old prophet, so notably one more established comes and says and angel of God told me otherwise and this young prophet believes him!  Why?  because he’s well known!

There is nothing wrong with honoring people BUT, if God specifically tells you something you need to follow what God tells you.  Seriously!  Where we are right now in the body of Christ we need to fear God more than we fear man.  It may come across as being rude and disrespectful to those who appear to be more senior than you but if you know God has told you something, you need to stick with that.  Why didn’t he just say let me pray and ask God about it myself and then I will let you know if it is OK for me to come to your house?  Because he’s giving more respect to the word of a man than the word God spoke directly to him.  Selah!

Be careful in just following the directives of others when God told you something different.

The problem is that obviously there was a territorial spirit that was giving lies to the prophets and the people (read the whole chapter).  Which is exactly why God told him not to eat there!  He was saving him from getting infected by it.

Please pay attention that this old prophet can hear from God, but in a moment a lying territorial spirit came over him.  So God couldn’t even use the old prophet to warn the people in his own region.  He had to find someone from out of the region and send them in to do the job.

When I got this dream I was so disturbed by it and it put me on guard in my spirit to watch what I am listening to, watch what I am eating (spiritual food), watch my associations and who I allow to speak into my life.

You know people in the body of Christ generally move in camps.  If you look at the conference flyers you’ll see the same people usually end up in the same conferences in different places.

If you ever notice something off with one person in the group shortly you will see one of two things happening, either that one person is no longer included in future events with the same group (because someone from the group realized what was going on and remove them) or the one person starts infecting all the others.  The defiled and the undefiled cannot hang out together, one will change the other eventually.  Birds of a feather…

It’s contagious!!  That’s why you have to watch where you eat!

Notice I stood back and watched what was going on before I jumped in to help that lady.  Sometimes you need to step back and observe.  Especially when you are trying to discern what’s going on.  Don’t get involved in it.  Eventually the truth will come out.  Things that are deceptive and/or counterfeit are generally so close to the real thing that unless you are truly observant, discerning and watching it for awhile from a distance, you can’t tell the difference.  It’s so subtle.

The enemy sets it up that way.  He doesn’t want you to easily pick up that something is wrong.  I just thank God for the Holy Spirit that can give us a check in our spirit when something is off.  He is the only one who will be able to show you the difference!

Whenever you feel that something is off just pray quickly and ask God “Father, my spirit is saying something is wrong here, what is wrong with this situation or this person, please reveal it to me”  Then you wait. Without casting judgement, just wait.  God will reveal it to you.

 

***Please note – If He doesn’t show you that something is wrong, this doesn’t mean it is OK.  It could mean that He’s not ready to show you yet what the problem is or He could just be saying “mind your own business, what is it to you?” (John 21:20-22) Just don’t ignore the check in your spirit and walk cautiously around that situation.  Continue to pay attention but don’t judge it, or open up your mouth against it unless He shows you what is wrong with it and tells you to say something.  Sometimes we can get uneasy when something doesn’t line up with our way of thinking but that doesn’t mean it is wrong.   Also, just because something is bad doesn’t mean He’s going to instantly remove it either… wheat and tares have to grow together until the end. (Matthew 13:24-30).  The key is for you to personally know what the truth is.

There’s a difference between not agreeing with someone’s point of view and being around someone who is under the influence of a lying and deceptive spirit.  What is the difference?  With one you can reason based on facts with the other there is no reasoning because they’re being blinded from ever seeing the truth by an evil spirit which means you have to handle it through warfare praying and not reasoning.  Big difference.

Here’s a prayer for you:

Holy Spirit, put a guard over my ears, my eyes, my nose, my mouth and my spirit so that I will not ingest anything that is rooted and grounded in the lies and deception of the enemy.  I pray that as soon as he attempts to deceive me, You will give me a check in my spirit so I will know something is wrong and then clearly show me what is wrong with it.  Do not allow me to fall into deception.  Give me the gift of discerning of spirits.  Give me a bold spirit to follow what You have said and not to cave into the wishes of men, even if they are senior to me.  I pray that in this season You guide me and lead me by Your Spirit.  If there is any area in my life right now where I have fallen into deception please show me.  Remove the blinders and veil from my eyes and give me a brave spirit to step away from it no matter what I may lose in the process and regardless of what others may say.  I want to start the new year with fresh clean eyes and a perspective that will come from You and not the enemy, in Jesus name, Amen

Blessings.

    Thank you for this post. I have been having difficulties dealing with some deception that has been going on in my church and I just came to know about it. Like the lady in the dream you shared, I learnt about the situation and shared with someone thinking I would get a solution but nothing happened instead it continued. I was in prayer asking God what to do , whether I should share it with another person or move to another church then this message came in. I will now keep my mouth shut and understand why God wanted me to know the rot that is taking place.
    God bless you

      Amen! It’s a sign of your maturity. Praise God for that. Ask the Lord if you should leave. If He says NO, then just keep your eyes open and watch what He reveals by keeping you there. Now when you go to church you HAVE to put on the armor of God before you enter that place. You wouldn’t want that spirit jumping on you. Blessings

    This message impacted me in so many ways, one of the ways is just that cartoon.. you said there was one error I believed you and didnt even think to question or check for myself. That is so wrong as a child God, we cant be that lazy , especially in the seasons we are heading into..a prophet says something a pastor says something and I dont for myself test the spirit, ask Father, check for myself in God’s word.. the number of revelations this whole teaching gave , just made me stop and repent before Father. Thank you.

      That’s exactly why I chose the image Nicola. I saw this on Facebook and I looked and saw the clock instantly and as I was about to scroll away a thought crossed my mind “What if there is actually more than one?” So I started looking more closely and when I saw the 2nd one I thought there could be more too. I didn’t say anything on purpose because I wanted to see how many people (even after reading the message) would actually take the time to look again…and question what they are being told!

    Hello MOP
    Praise God for the wonderful work you are doing, at all times we really need to focus on God ,He Has promised never to leave us or forsake us.
    In this recent article you mentioned about warfare praying when someone is under the influence of a lying and deceptive spirit,how do I identify this in a person and how i do warfare praying?
    Be blessed and kind regards .

    • December 8, 2020 at 10:54 am — Reply

      Hi Grace, very good question. First, you have to be observant as I was in the dream. I was able to identify that those people were not the same without opening my mouth. If you have the gift of discerning of spirits you’ll pick it up right away but if you don’t it means you have to watch and pray until you are sure. The big clue is when you try to have a civil, FACT based conversation with someone and they can’t receive the facts. Usually it is because they are working off of their own set of facts because the problem with deception is they don’t know they are being deceived. Which you now need to be sure that their facts are actually false and show it to them. If they still refuse to accept it then you are not talking to someone that operating in their right mind. Please understand that you have to make sure that your own facts are facts, not opinions, evening news, Facebook memes, or 3rd party stories. Most of what is in the public is false, from both sides. And you have to be sure that you are not also operating from pride. With pride we always want to be right. If you are sure then you need to handle it like you are doing a demonic deliverance which is binding the spirit and casting out that spirit. It’s deliverance. Sometimes the spirit that they are under, as in the story of Elijah, is a territorial spirit. That means everyone in that area will think exactly the same way as that person. Now you are dealing with a larger entity that you can’t just bind and cast out. You would have to take the person completely out of the territory into a new area that is far away from that place, pray that the veil be removed from their eyes and then start having the conversation again. At that moment, they will easily accept the fact because they are not under that territorial spirit anymore. This happens alot which is why sometimes when people go on a vacation they can think clearer, come up with new ideas, see things in a different light…because that spirit that is on and possible in their household is not there. Hope this helps.

        MOP, thank you for answering this question. I had the same question this week and here is the answer! There is a lady friend with whom I come across often and once the quarantine started, it’s like I couldn’t even reason with her. What threw me off was that she was a Christian and someone I respected (past tense). The root of the problem was that she was “eating” CNN on a daily basis and that’s when I began to see hostility come out of her and slander against people in authority. But the main thing now that you mention it, is that there is no reasoning whatsoever with this person. Thank you for giving some examples of how to spot the deceptive spirit and what to do in these situations.

        • December 8, 2020 at 5:30 pm — Reply

          Yes, they usually become very hostile. Even if you are calm, this spirit of deception doesn’t want you questioning the person. Because remember there is a spirit there which is separate from the actual person. You can’t even have a discussion they are dismissive and unwilling to listen. A normal person would listen, take some time to reflect and examine what you said and then come back with a ration answer, reasoning or response. Even if you don’t agree in the end you can tell when someone listened and formulated an answer after carefully examining the facts.

    Hi Matthew,
    Good observation! I also noticed the cowboy’s boots, the little red haired girl’s hairstyle, and I think the dollar sign on the sign. The key for me was that the disclaimer was the lie letting us believe that there was only ONE difference which is obviously false 🙂

    Shalom!

    This is a very important article for our time and in the future.
    On a spiritual perspective, it is obvious that in every move that God makes with his people, satan trys very hard to imitate in order to mislead and draw away from God.
    He did it in the time of the Israelites by having false prophets. Jesus mentioned it twice, first as a warning in Matthew 24:24.
    Second, In Matthew 13:37-39 when Christ sow kingdom seeds, the enemy (satan) also sow his seeds, however his are an imitation of the real .
    If we allow ourselves to be absorbed in God’s word more than ever before, and make our quiet time with the Lord a priority in our daily life and put into practice John,14:23; what a wonderful protection that we will have!!. We will be on the safe side aquiring and experiencing Ephesians 3:18,19 to the glory of our God, always. And we’ll not be shaken but become more firm on the Rock of Ages.Amen.

    I need prayers. For the past month I have been eating a lot in my dreams, sometimes up to 2 or 3 times. I have been eating with people unknown to me, some known to me and some who are even dead in real life.
    I am in repentance and fasting and I have been taking communion for a week now. The dreams will stop for a day or two and then come back full swing. I need deliverance from this demonic bondage.

      Hi June, the prayer within this post is enough and you need to pray it every time you have these dreams. It appears that they already have access to you so there are some other things that you need to take care of. Dead people or people from the past can be familiar spirits here is a post that explains what this is and a prayer to cut the connection https://www.missionariesofprayer.org/2015/04/prayer-against-a-familiar-spirit-and-monitoring-spirits/. Since this is a chronic issue you may need to do a spiritual house cleaning as well and here is some information on this https://www.missionariesofprayer.org/2017/04/house-cleansing-prayer/ and then the final thing because this may be linked to a generational curse, here is a series on that https://www.missionariesofprayer.org/2012/09/blessings-curses-work/ We can pray for you but where these things are concerned you have to participate in your own deliverance because they are obviously attached to something you are doing or somewhere you are going or some things that are in your house so only you can cut the connections. Blessings

    As I was reading this my spirit bore confirmation to it. God kept speaking Isaiah 17 as I was reading it. This is a season were we must have a personal relationship with God and stop relying on what the leadership saids to do. Time to sto playing church but time to start walking with God for real. Many are and will be deceived because they have already been infected by deceptive lying spirits. A few months ago Gid spoke through a dream about Isaiah 7 dealing with bees and locust and t watch and observe what He is going to do, but to stay with Him at all times. We are to be very careful during this season. Do not give in to the flesh, but fight to follow the spirit. There is power is silence and observation, it is in doing this that God will speak to us.

    As soon as I started reading this, I immediately thought about the coronavirus vaccine. It just doesn’t sit right with me. I have spoken with seniors in my church in regards to this, especially that all 3 companies that have found a “cure” at some point have all used aborted/miscarriage tissue as part of their research. My leaders which I have spoken of this are going ahead with the vaccine. After all it’s just going against God a little right? It’s all for the greater good right? A little here, a little there.
    This is not condemnation to anyone who has chosen to go ahead and get the vaccine, each to their own. After all we are all given free Will.
    But as for me and my house, We will serve the Lord.
    Blessings

      Yes, that’s why I said that this could have many different applications. Always remember what happened to the lady that went about trying to fix it on her own without seeking God. You need to pray about this if that’s what you believe it is. Handle it in prayer first, wait for an answer from the Lord and then go from there before saying anything to anyone including family members. In the end people were turning people in just to get the money. It came down to money. Just remember that.

    Hello MOP,

    Thank you for sharing this word as it resonates with me strongly. One of my prayers at the beginning of the year was for the Heavenly Father to show me people’s hearts. This is a serious prayer and we need to be ready for the answer. I was shocked when certain individuals’ true character was revealed.
    The story of the old and young prophet from 1 Kings 13:11-24 is one that I have often pondered and continued to ponder. The punishment that the younger prophet received, i.e., death, might be deemed pretty harsh and I have always wondered why God did not punish the older prophet that lied. I agree wholeheartedly that we need to abide and be resolute with what God has told us and not be afraid of man regardless of status. I’m glad that you touched on honour as that’s another thing that I have been pondering over recently.

    I really want clarity,please about the notion of eating in dreams and the explanation that it is making some sort of covenant with someone or something. I do not quite see that at this time. Could it be possible that eating in dreams can be positive as well depending on who you are fellowshipping or supping with?
    I have recently had two dreams of eating by means of former classmates (from over 20 years ago) putting food directly in my right hand and I receiving and eating it. Neither of those dreams seemed negative but I might be missing something.
    I will like to share the one from November 7, 2020 as I think it has some corporate application after reading the word you shared today and me re-reading it again a few minutes ago. I welcome any further insights please as I am still pondering over the interpretation.
    November 7, 2020 @ ~0701 (I woke up a bit earlier but did not check the time right away)
    “Dreamt that I was with my senior pastor and some other people. It looked like my senior pastor was playing/learning to play a new instrument, ? clarinet, but was not doing too well. I left what I was doing with something/contraption (? another instrument) that had many parts and was trying to clean it. I decided to go retrieve a ziploc bag to contain the small cleaning parts, e.g., a small brush. The quest for a ziploc bag took me to what looked like the operating room. I saw a VERY tall Caucasian anesthetist that was unknown to me. He simply looked down at me. I proceeded to another room and saw classmates (Beenish, Shazia, and Maryam) from my middle/high school but they were not wearing uniforms but busy performing different roles. Beenish appeared to be in charge of cooking and was cooking a big batch of cabbage dish that was all vegetation. I noticed a big batch of smoked dried fish next to the batch of cabbage. She gave me some of the cabbage to taste by plopping into my right hand directly. Maryam told me she would show me where a ziploc bag was and got me one that appeared to have the number “33” stuck on it as a sticker in black and white. I asked her to please put it in my pocket as I was still eating the cabbage and my hand was dirty.
    Either in the same dream, in a different scene or in another dream, a tiger (black and white) was looking to me for help in a room with other people. On closer examination, I found that it had a few teeth that were loose and later noticed some dental instruments on a bed, ready for a dentist or surgeon to assist it.”
    Interpretation:
    I believe that there are many levels of interpretation for this dream and believe that my pastor in this dream could either be literal suggesting that the whole current situation is making him learn a new “instrument”, and/or corporate i.e. work in a different way which is probably true for the church at large.
    The other elements of the roles, ziploc bag, #33, and the tiger remain an enigma and I believe that God will continue to reveal more.
    I had two other dreams that same night with no times listed upon waking but I won’t share them at this time as this entry is already very long.
    Any thoughts? Thanks!
    Shalom!

      Eating is forming a covenant. As we all know there are good covenants and bad ones. Jesus had communion with the disciples, that was eating. The disciples eating fish on the beach with the Lord after his resurrection or Jesus feeding the 5,000 is all good. The point is not that you are eating in the dream but who are you eating with. Who are you forming the covenant with? So then your people in dreams represent something – good or bad. So you need to interpret your own dream by saying what do these people represent? They are from your past, is this good or is it bad? What were they like? Their spirit that is. That’s how you know if it is good or bad. You can do a word study in the bible with people eating together and clearly see which ones were good and which ones were bad. The same with the dreams. Now if you don’t know who you are eating with in the dream and it was just eating, that cannot be good because some important information is being concealed and only the devil lives in darkness. Then that could be seen as the witchcraft. Hope this helps.

        Thank you for the further clarification about eating in dreams. It definitely helps. May I ask what your thoughts are on why God did not punish or rebuke the old prophet for lying? I feel like there is more that meets the eye here. I guess my question may be deemed as merciless, lacking grace, and/or judgemental. I like how you painted the story in the sense that it had never occurred to me that the old prophet was under the bondage of a lying spirit perhaps that is the answer. If indeed the old prophet was “bound” he was not acting under his own influence, he was a captive and somehow his “eyes were opened” when he saw the plight of the young man’s punishment, death.
        I mentioned that I had been reflecting on honour recently. Here are two epiphanies that came to be this morning and I thought I should share without going into any detail or further explanation unless if requested.
        (1) 1 Peter 2:23
        (2) “God assesses the your levels of pride and humility before He promotes you.”
        I saw this comment above today or at least the essence of it on a “Which Jesus Are You? Just for Laughs Gags” of all places 🙂 I believe the individual that was attributed to stating it was David Taylor. I tried to go back to verify from the comments section and found that it has over 7.1K comments!!! I think it was definitely Divine that I found it imbedded there in the first place. It’s an interesting clip that can be perceived as blasphemous, humorous, and/or ministering tool. I had all three initial thoughts and I settled with that it all depends on the motives of the producers in the same token that a poet truly understands the true meaning of each penned word and verse and we may all have our own interpretations and perceptions. I won’t lie, it brought a smile on my face and thought at least they know their Bible to some extent.
        Any way, this clip reminds me of this word’s notion of subtle deception in the sense that we do need to try every spirit and word.
        Shalom!

    Witchcraft.

    Eating in dreams is indicative of witchcraft.

    What and tares, well, I suggest praying about what those truly are.
