Faces set like flint

There is a man dying, fighting for breath but he does not have a disease. It is because the very air is full of beings that have crowded the oxygen out of the atmosphere. There is none to breathe in. These beings that fill the sky are like clouds, but they are not, and they have huge faces. One is in the front leading the way with a very determined expression. I feel the urgency and call to fight! Fight for our very air. Meanwhile, on the ground, I am looking for someone I know to be a leader of the resistance in this war in the heavenlies. I find him, and a few others and we are discussing going to his hide out. An armed soldier arrives. The others disperse and I am hiding in plain sight in a phone booth. The soldier approaches me and points his huge gun at me, demanding that I tell him where the others went. I attempt to tell him the wrong direction and he interrupts saying, ” No, I know they did not go that way, tell me where they went, or I will kill you” I somehow manage to lose him and find the hideout. It is a suite in a house with apartments on either side, but the walls are made of glass, windows on the worlds of those next to me, I can see what they are doing.

I am waiting for the others to arrive and know that I am between assignments. I decide to bake and have made both bread and cake. I am putting it all away in the cupboards, cleaning all signs of my presence in the apartment away so that I could not be found, when I realize that people will know someone was there because of the smell of the baking.

The resistance leader and two others show up. They are giving me my assignment. I am to go undercover as a cheerleader. I prepare by taking a bath and shaving going way higher up my thighs than I have ever shaved before.

James Goll, in his book about dreams tells us that if you feel the presence of an angel for an extended period after the dream, that it was a real visitation.

The angel in my dream was a real visitation. I could feel his presence and encouragement for days following this event. That determined face like flint in the battle was vividly etched in my mind, and still is, to this day.

It seemed important to the interpretation of this dream to research verses that contained that word flint:

Jeremiah 5:3 O Lord you are looking for faithfulness, you have tried to get them to be honest for you have punished them, but they won’t change. You destroy them, but they refuse to turn from their sins. They are determined with faces as hard as rock (flint) not to repent”

Isaiah 50:7 For the Lord God helps Me, Therefore, I am not disgraced; Therefore, I have set My face like flint, And I know that I will not be ashamed.”

This was a prophecy bout Jesus, He had his face set like flint to obey, towards the cross, and because of this, He won victory

These two scriptures outlined two very different examples. In one, people were determined to disobey. In the other Jesus was determined to obey. Intercession for repentance in His body overcame me, “O lord give us respect for you, great love for you so that we will WANT to be more submitted to you with our faces set like flint toward obedience to you instead of away from you, continuing in our sin, living in grace but lacking in power! Don’t let us take advantage of your grace, abuse it!” There was a fear of the Lord on me, this was indeed what the church had been doing abusing His grace, not treasuring it.

Back to some interpretation of the dream because there is strategy to found. The first thing about this dream that seemed to be of significance was that I hid in plain sight in a phone booth. I asked the Lord,” how does a person hide in plain sight?”

The answer came: humility.

I was reminded that the phone booth is where mild-mannered Clark Kent became Superman. That to clothe oneself in humility, to appear unassuming is a posture of safety.

Then this scripture came to mind: Philippians 2: 5 Have this attitude in yourselves which was also in Christ Jesus, 6 who, although He existed in the form of God, did not regard equality with God a thing to be grasped, 7 but emptied Himself, taking the form of a bond-servant, and being made in the likeness of men 8 Being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. 9 For this reason also, BECAUSE OF THE STANCE OF HUMILITY God also highly exalted Him and bestowed on Him the name which is above every name. I could hear Him saying that in humility God gives us victory over our enemies.

To get ready for my next assignment I had to bathe and shave higher than I ever had before. Bathing and shaving speaks of being purified and a higher level of sanctification required in the next season.

I was approached by a soldier with a gun: symbol of spiritual warfare usually an accuser of the brethren on personal assignment to stop a believer. My daily scripture reading for the day I woke up from this dream just coincidentally happened to be this:

Isaiah 62: 8 The Lord has sworn to Jerusalem by his own strength: “I will never again hand you over to your enemies. Never again will foreign soldiers come and take away your grain and new wine.

The reason to shave higher than ever before outlines the need for a higher level of sanctification that is needed for a higher level of victory in our own lives. We need it so we can bring healing and deliverance to others.

I took a lot of your time, telling you about this dream. It is a significant indicator of strategy for the church today as the times get more difficult. The angles have been sent to fight on our behalf and their faces are set like flint to win, and they are on the winning side. There is also  an increased need for Christians to have faces set like flint toward humility and obedience.
