Last night (Good Friday 10th April) I had a dream in which I was in a large upper room in a church building with lots of people – some I knew and some I didn’t. During the course of the meeting my friend and I (we were not next to each other as we usually would be when seated in church) at exactly the same time spoke out a powerful tongue in unison.
As we spoke it out the words were so powerful and strong – the declaration in them went forth like a loud cry & a roar and we marched forward as we said the tongue. This was a completely new thing to us – my friend has the gift of tongues and I often have the gift of interpretation to her tongue and we will bring a word in church meetings but never at the same time. I remember being overawed in the dream because this was a new thing and the power of the Holy Spirit was tangible. The Lord was doing something new amongst us.
The interpretation of the tongue was:
“Our God is a man of war. See He goes forth. He has arisen! A mighty man of war. He rises against His enemies and they will be scattered. He has sent forth His arrows & pierced the darkness. He has defeated death. He has conquered. He has risen on our behalf and the glory is all His. All the glory belongs to Him and to no other. He is a man of war and He strides out on our behalf across the nations. He has conquered and has won the victory over death & disease. He is the victor. All honour & glory belong to Him and no other. He is the one true God & all the praise & honour is His. Let no-one try & take the honour for themselves. Woe to them who will claim the victory for themselves. God has arisen and His enemies are scattered. The victory is His. Amen.”
This morning I looked for these words in scripture and it says:
Exodus 15 -The Song of Moses
1Then Moses and the people of Israel sang this song to the Lord, saying,
“I will sing to the Lord, for he has triumphed gloriously;
the horse and his ridera he has thrown into the sea.
2The Lord is my strength and my song,
and he has become my salvation;
this is my God, and I will praise him,
my father’s God, and I will exalt him.
3The Lord is a man of war;
the Lord is his name.
1 Let God arise, let his enemies be scattered: let them also that hate him flee before him.
2 As smoke is driven away, so drive them away: as wax melteth before the fire, so let the wicked perish at the presence of God.
3 But let the righteous be glad; let them rejoice before God: yea, let them exceedingly rejoice.
