A Dream that I had this past year Posted on 07-01-2007

Brother P
hardeeville, SC
DREAM I was at Bishop TD Jakes' Church when he took my hand, stretched forth my fingers, and yelled into my hand, “JESUS!!!” He looked out amongst the congregation and told them to bless me. As the people passed me, they would place in my hand cash and checks. Several white people passed and I was privy to there conversation. They commented that Bishop Jakes was a ****. After they passed a young lady approached me writing a check. When I glanced at her the second time her Sunday attire had changed into Greek paraphernalia. She was wearing Delta Sigma Theta paraphernalia from head to toe. I told her I had something to tell her and she was not going to like it. She backed up and said, “Don’t tell me I don’t want to hear it!” I than began to share with her my testimony about my deliverance from Greek associations. She handed me the check and walked away distraught. INTERPRETATION The Father’s Blessing Early in church history, apostolic fathers such as Paul imparted grace and giftings into their spiritual sons. Apostolic fathers were instrumental in helping the next generation discover their passions, creativity, giftings, and anointings. Bishop Jakes is embraced as a contemporary apostolic father in the Body of Christ. The dream illustrates a powerful principle about the dynamics of a spiritual father and son relationship. Spiritual fathers help shape their sons prophetic destiny in manifold ways. The dream clearly points to three areas of influence and investment in the life of a spiritual son: 1) Spiritual fathers identify the **** within their spiritual sons 2) Spiritual fathers disciple sons in their calling and labor to see Christ formed in their character and life 3) Spiritual fathers speak to the ****, barren and unproductive areas of their sons lives and align them to receive the Father’s blessing (demonstrated when Bishop yells Jesus over what was in your hand) You are entering a season of divine connections. You will submit to the Father’s correction and counsel for your life through the voice of a spiritual father. This connection will lead to the further unfolding of your prophetic purpose and destiny. The dream reveals that the Creator is ready to endow what is in your hand (which includes your life, ministry, and destiny). The Lord desires for a spiritual father to speak to the blind spots in your life that you may grow in wisdom, stature and in favor with God and men (see Luke 2:52). Sons that seek God and His righteousness are properly positioned to receive gracious endowments and blessings from their heavenly Father. Favor Aint’ Fair The Lord desires to increase your influence in your family, your community, and in the Church. The dream reveals that your heavenly Father will release the next wave of favor into your life once you are aligned to receive spiritual insight from your spiritual father whose role is to help shape your life and ministry for this next outpouring. When you stretched forth your fingers as the man of God commanded you, it was your willingness to submit yourself to a father’s instruction that unlocked this new dimension of increase and favor in the dream. Mighty man of valor, the hand of the Lord is strong upon you in this season and the dream was given to encourage you in this next season to embrace the mentoring plan the Father has elected for you which ultimately is designed to bring you into greater fruitfulness and abundance. The scriptures states it like this, “For it is God that gives you power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which He swore unto your fathers.” The Lord is empowering your life through a covenant relationship that will serve to remove flesh or anything that impedes the flow of the anointing into your life. You are embarking upon a journey that will bring you into your prophetic Goshen. You will know you have arrived when you have found favor with both God and men. The ridiculous season of favor that is coming to you will undoubtedly cause many to take inventory of their own lives and pursue a deeper consecration with the Lord of the harvest. Many will complain that your increase is unmerited. Many will claim the Lord is not fair when He promotes you over others that feel they have been more faithful than yourself. The Father is just in glorifying His name through a broken and yielded vessel that just happens to be you. Haters and Destiny Slayers The law of reciprocity is in full effect in your life. Luke 6:38 paraphrased simply states that Lord has made you a steward of what He has placed in your hands. When you invest what is in your hands into the kingdom of God the Father commands the blessing over your life. The blessing will provoke men to give into your passions (translated from bosoms to mean passions) so you may have the resources and influences to build and advance the kingdom of God. The flip side of this principle is that negative emotions will impede the flow of life. The dream reveals hidden critical and judgmental attitudes that you have toward some men in leadership. The Father exposes these hidden prejudices so you can take inventory and rid your spirit of any toxic emotions that will cause you to miss your divine connection. The white people who questioned Bishop’s integrity is that side of you that has had negative experiences with men in authority (this includes biological relations as well). The Father is ready to confront past issues as it relates to authority **** and the long term effects that it has had in your life. This is the season to heal from past disappointments that you may embrace with passion and great expectancy the things the Father will impart into your life through covenant relationships. Dreamer, you are admonished in the dream not to let familiar ties (associations and leagues with others) cause you to miss the best the Father has for you in this life time. The distraught lady in the Greek paraphernalia represents familiar church traditions and philosophies (DST comes from an old Greek philosophy) that many will struggle with breaking their allegiance from if they are to reclaim their prophetic destinies. The old religious mindsets lure many into a false sense of deliverance and freedom. The dream warns you not to hold to old paradigms that foster an atmosphere of counterfeit blessings. The old garments that kept you entrapped in cycles of defeat and despair are being removed in this season. Man of God the Father promise to you is that every blessing He adds to you will make you rich and is guaranteed not to add any sorrow with it. Dreamer, the haters and destiny slayers that threaten your future are strongholds of the mind and impurities of the spirit. Be vigilant in eradicating the enemies of your soul. Your loving Father is sending a spiritual father that will help to posture you according to godly character and purpose that you may expand your borders and increase on EVERY side. In the infamous words of Bishop Jakes, “Get ready, get ready, get ready……,” to multiply, increase, and overflow. Equipped to properly handle the favor of the Lord, Prophetess Lisa James Welcome to Hannah's Cry

I have heard of people denouncing their Greek letters because of religious beliefs. I feel that with anything you should keep it balanced. There are many Christian believers that are a part of Greek organizations. If a person's perspective toward Greek orgs is thinking of it as a way of meeting new people and making new friends with people, you wouldn't have normally talked to, then I feel that's having balance. People start to step off into sin when they start hazing people and being mean spirited toward individuals or thinking they are better than someone because of a Greek org. It becomes an issue when people are so busy with Greek business that they forget the Father's business. It is a problem when people can go to a sorority jazz brunch on Saturday but can't get up and go to church on Sunday. That is when the Greek stuff becomes an issue. If a person has a healthy perspective of what Greek orgs are for, then they shouldn't have problems with it. I know of this one lady that has a departmental job at a college campus and her office was filled from top to bottom with AKA stuff. It looked like a shrine. The instant I walked in her office I knew something wasn't right with that picture. In a sense it looked like she had built a shrine to worship AKA. That is when things are out of balance. There isn't anything wrong with showing Greek pride, but then there is a thin line between showing the pride and stepping off into idolatry. So to the person who started this thread, if the Lord told you to denounce it, then you must do what God has told you to do. Some people can't handle the Greek stuff because they let it take over them and make them think that those particular orgs made them. Some people let Greek stuff distract them from God and get so wrapped up in worldly things. So it is for each its' on. I am also thinking about joining a Greek org, but I have a strong foundation in the word of God. It is an issue for many when joining these orgs and they don't have a foundation in the Lord. I know who I am in Christ and NO Greek org can tell me who I am! I have already been revealed who I am from my creator. I also have a balanced attitude for what the purpose of Greek orgs are for. It is for socializing, networking, meeting new friends, and helping people in the community. Anything beyond that purpose would be considered out of balance!

The thing about this dream is that it happenned several years after i denounced and the Prophetess who interpreted the dream several months later just so happenned to have pledged delta the same time as me spr 92. I did not look for her to interpret my dream a delta from a message board read my dream and asked me to send it to Prophetess Lisa James. Many people thought i was not telling the truth but i sent it to her immediately and this is how she explained it. We have talked on the phone and thats when i found out that she had pledged delta spr 92.

Was she the one, the delta, in the dream that didn't want to hear your advice about denouncing the letters and cutting all ties from Greek affiliation? (The Prophetess)

I dont know ..... the only face that i can remember was TD Jakes' . The main thing i remembered about the young lady is how her clothes changed and the expressions on her face. I did not see Prophetess Lisa James Face until months later on her website .... and by that time all i could remember about the face of the young lady in my dream was her expressions.

With dreams you have to be careful. Sometimes you dream strange stuff because of something you ate the night before. Some dreams you might have to cast down, in the name of Jesus, or the dreams didn't have any meaning at all and it was just a dream. Also, you have to be very careful of receiving prophecies from people. If it isn't something that lines up with the word of God, or something that isn't confirmation for you, then you have to put the prophecy on the shelf. I have had people to prophecy things to me, in the past, that weren't any confirmation to me. God will use someone to give you a prophecy, as a confirmation, for something he has already told you. If it is something you are hearing for the first time, from a person, you have to be very leery. Also, God usually gives something in two or three witnesses. He will show you where it lines up in the Word. So be very careful with having to chase after a interpretation of every dream you have. The enemy will see that and will start trying to send you weird dreams because he knows that you think every dream is from God.

.... we must cast down imaginations and bring every thought into the captivity of Jesus Christ. If you knew me you would know that i dont play the prophecy church game at all... The delta did not even know that Prophetess Lisa James had pledged delta spr 92. Thank God for the Word and prayer. God still speaks through dreams and visions but they should always line up with the Word of God .
