I am so excited to share this wonderful dream with my brothers and sisters in Christ. So often, the dreams I receive have an ominous tone of warning. This dream is one of celebration and great jubilation! I trust I will be able to share it in such a way that you will have the same sense of excitement and great expectation of what is soon to come! I received this dream sometime after 5:30am this morning, October 22, 2021. The setting of the dream was of a gathering of people at harvest time. If you have children or grand-children, I’m sure many of you have visited a ‘pumpkin patch’ at this time of year. It was somewhat like this but on a grand scale. It would be more comparable to a state fair without the carnival rides but with more focus on the feasting and the celebration of an abundant harvest. There was music and dancing and games for children. Concessions of every kind were available with many, many booths covering acres and acres. People were coming from everywhere, traveling great distances to be a part of this wonderful festival. Everything was free . . . the admission, the food, the activities, even the parking!
In this dream, I was part of the organization team. I had been working many, many months on planning this event. There was an office building in which I had a desk that was located away from the activities. I don’t remember all the little details, but I remember taking a ride around the festival grounds in a small vehicle like a golf cart, making sure everything was set up perfectly before the gates to the event were opened. One of my tasks had been to procure a virtual caravan of open trolley buses to be on hand to transport the attendees from the parking lots on the outer perimeter to the main festival area. All was ready, the trolleys had been dispatched and everything was perfectly in place. At one point I stopped in an open eatery with picnic tables set up to grab something to eat. There was such urgency in the time I had left before the ‘grand opening’ that I had to get the food ‘to go.’ I’m not sure what this detail means, but a young girl perhaps age 6 to 8 years old, seemed to attach herself to my skirt-tail while I was waiting for my food. She reminded me of my little sister when we were young with a head full of blonde curls and a sweet smile with dimples in her cheeks. I got her some food also, but the little girl was not in the remainder of the dream.
After receiving my food, I hurried back to the office building to report that everything was in order and the gates could open on time as scheduled. I had just sat down at my desk when something marvelous happened. I wish I could say I heard a trumpet or saw a great light, but that is not the case. I just suddenly heard a KNOCK AT THE DOOR. I had a mouth full of food that I was trying to swallow before I answered the door. It was a very tiny delay but by the time I got to the door, no one was there. I poked my head out and looked all around . . . NOTHING! Then I turned around and THERE HE WAS! He was inside the office waiting for me to turn around and see Him. OH, THE JOY . . . unspeakable and full of glory! MY JESUS! I saw him standing only a few feet from me and I felt His joy as well . . . as if our spirits were rejoicing together as ONE!
Upon awakening, I was still filled with so much JOY and a sense of great expectation! This is not the first dream that I have had of Jesus coming for me . . . not even the first time He has knocked down or come through walls ‘coming after me.’ A lyric from the song ‘Reckless Love,’ sung by Corey Asbury, came to my remembrance . . . “There’s no shadow You won’t light up, mountain You won’t climb up, COMING AFTER ME . . . There’s no wall You won’t kick down, lie You won’t tear down, COMING AFTER ME . . . Oh the overwhelming never-ending, reckless love of God!”
I would like to be able to tell you with certainty that I know the interpretation of this dream. However, all I can share with you is the BLESSED HOPE that this dream gives me . . . the fulfillment of my Lord’s promise that He is coming after me. Could this be the season? Whether that even occurs tomorrow, this week, this month, this year, or whenever Our Heavenly Father chooses to send Him . . . I will be waiting. Someday soon there will be a gathering like the one in this dream . . . the Greatest Harvest Festival ever to take place on planet earth . . . and JESUS IS GOING TO SHOW UP RIGHT ON TIME! Be watchful . . . be ready . . . be listening for His knock on your door!
Yours for the Harvest, Averine
P.S. While researching scriptures to go with this message, I was led once again to Genesis 49:10. Those of you who have followed my previous writings may know the significance of this verse. It was given to me by the Lord with the very first message He gave me to post back in March of 2020 when I was instructed to “Gather the People, Call a Solemn Assembly.” I literally got ‘Holy Ghost chill bumps’ as I read this verse once again! May we continue to pray for national and individual repentance ‘until Shiloh comes!
