Summary: I dreamed that the Holy Spirit took me up in the air. He was teaching me how to fly. At first I felt like Dumbo, I was then catching on. I was able to fly as the Spirit was enabling.

Flying Like Dumbo

Ezekiel 43:4-5

4 And the glory of the LORD came into the house by the way of the gate whose prospect is toward the east.

5 So the spirit took me up, and brought me into the inner court; and, behold, the glory of the LORD filled the house.

I am entitling this today:

Flying like Dumbo

How many knows this morning that we serve a speaking God who is able to show us the plan that he has for our lives?

How many knows that sometimes God speaks to us the way that He did in the Bible days?

If you look through out the Bible God has always spoke in Parables.

Eze 20:49 Then said I, Ah Lord GOD! they say of me, Doth he not speak parables?

Mt 13:13 Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand.

Mr 4:11 And he said unto them, Unto you it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God: but unto them that are without, all these things are done in parables:

We as believers are able to understand the mysteries of God, but sometimes we have to be willing to seek the matter out.

Pr 25:2 It is the glory of God to conceal a thing: but the honour of kings is to search out a matter.

In Ezekiel 43 heralds the return of the Holy Spirit to the Millennial Temple, Ezekiel had saw Him leave in verse 11, but now see’s His glorious return.

Atonement as the eternal foundation of Gods relationship with man is the key note of this chapter.

Eze 43:2 And, behold, the glory of the God of Israel came from the way of the east: and his voice was like a noise of many waters: and the earth shined with his glory.

Israel had rejected Him and so he left, now Israel has been washed and cleansed by the blood of the Lamb and He returns.

Ezekiel was considered a watchman who was to hear from God and announce what he heard.

Church we need some watchmen and watch women on the wall that is able to hear the word of the Lord.

Ezekiel in verse one says that He was brought to the gate.

This tells us that he did not get there on his own.

Verse two says the glory of the God of Israel came from the way of the east: and his voice was like a noise of many waters:

Church how many knows that God and His Throne are in the eastern skies?

Ezekiel heard Him that sets upon the throne speak and it was the sound of many waters.

Church we have to start believing that he can speak and open up the word and see that nothing is too hard for God.

Church we need to tap into that underground spring.

It might look dead but God is applying the water for growth.

4-1-12 by Joe Rowland (Sunday afternoon)

I dreamed that we (Susan and I) were going to clean the church. I went back and turned on the water hose. I was watching as the church was flooding with water. (Sanctuary and everywhere) I said something to Susan about the dirt; she said that it would flow out.

Scene change

Susan and I and two other people were in a room at the church. It was a hidden room. It was all yellow. I said to Susan why isn’t the water flowing in this room. She said its coming. I then felt the water on the floor. There was a special traction on the floor. I slipped to the bottom and I noticed a baby.

Be joyful - God is moving in the church!

The church is going to be filled with God & Holy Spirit like an incoming flood, taking out the grim & dirt within it (get ready because when God starts cleaning house it can get a bit messy).

The hidden room speaks of hidden talents & a gift within the church. The church is going to birth some type of new ministry as this takes place - something wonderful from the Lord and, someone said Pastor Joe, it appears you are going to have yourself quite an experience when this gift arrives! There are 4 of you in the room at this point - four speaks of 'creation or creativity'. The traction seems to speak of God's help & aid along this journey.

All the messiness will be worth it in the end. God is giving us a promise to look forward to!

Ezekiel 43:4

4 And the glory of the LORD came into the house by the way of the gate whose prospect is toward the east.
