Are you looking for the missing key to your healing? Do you want to take back things the enemy has stolen from you? Are you tired of the enemy's needles that attack you and keep you from resting?
If so, the Lord gave me a word for you today! It's a word that I have already seen come true in my own life in dramatic ways, so I know it's going to encourage you too!
I recently had a dream in which the Lord showed me that the strongman's door is unlocked.
Here was the dream, in a nutshell:
My mother, my sister, and I broke into a house. The house had formerly belonged to my grandmother, who had it built from scratch.
However, in the dream, the house belonged to “the strongman.” My grandmother had sold the house to this “strongman.” We knew this full well, but we didn't care. We broke in anyway.
When we broke in, we did so by simply walking through the front door. We knew we were crossing somewhere that didn't belong to us. However, we also knew that the strongman wasn't home, so we went in anyway … and the door was actually unlocked.
Once inside the house, we began going through the closets.
In the closets, we found things that belonged to us–things that had been lost. Sometimes these lost items appeared out of reach (e.g. on a high closet shelf), but the distance was no problem. We reached everything easily and reclaimed what was ours.
While in this house, we saw two queen beds in a large, glass-walled, wraparound sunroom. These beds were meant to be places of rest, but they had briars growing (indoors!) next to them. The briars were spreading onto the beds, so anyone who tried to rest got poked with thorns instead. We uprooted those briars.
In the middle of the dream, a man named Daniel came to us and told us that the strongman would be angry if he knew we were in his house. However, we were unconcerned. We continued to reclaim what was ours.
At the end of the dream, the strongman came home.
We met him in the driveway. He was very angry that we had broken into his home.
We discussed the situation with him and said various things to try and convince him not to call the police. However, our approach to the whole conversation was very lackadaisical. We were not afraid of him, and he never called the police. We got away with everything we wanted!
I believe this dream is a significant word to the Body of Christ right now.
We are ALL supposed to reclaim our stuff from the strongman–and it's going to be EASY! How do I know this? Because my mother and sister in the dream represent YOU. Matthew 12:49-50 says:
And He stretched out His hand toward His disciples and said, ‘Here are My mother and My brothers! For whoever does the will of My Father in heaven is My brother and sister and mother‘” (Matthew 12:49-50).
The mother and sister represent the whole Church: Y-O-U. 🙂
The stuff we are supposed to reclaim has been lost for a long time.
That's why it was my grandmother's house. We're talking about OLD situations. Old things that were lost. Old wrongs that have never been made right. Big, old things that have haunted you all these years.
The things that the enemy has stolen from you could include:
- Your peace of mind;
- Your joy;
- Your reputation;
- Your childhood;
- Your innocent, trusting heart;
- Your ability to rest; and more.
You have not seen these things come back yet, so you've been afraid that they won't come back. You've worried that it might be too hard to get them back, if you get them back at all. And, you haven't known how to get them back.
But God is the Judge, and He has decided on your behalf.
In the dream, “Daniel” told us that the strongman wouldn't like it if he found out we were in his house. The name “Daniel” means “God is my judge.” So God is warning us that there will be some warfare here–and in the dream we saw that. We saw the strongman come home; and, sure enough, he didn't like it that we had broken and entered into his house.
But you know what? The strongman was powerless to stop us. We got everything we wanted, and it wasn't even hard.
Beloved, you can get your things back. The door isn't even unlocked.
Beloved, the strongman is the devil, but he is not home. JESUS has the keys, and the strongman isn't even able to defend the stuff he took.
This means that YOU can take back the things the enemy has stolen from you. You can find the things that appear to have been lost–the things that belong to you. Those things may appear out of reach, but they aren't. You can get them back, and it's going to be easy.
As you get your stuff back, clear out the briars that have kept you from resting.
You have an open heaven. THAT is the truth of God's Word. No matter where you go, you can see everything God has for you. You have access to everything in the spirit realm through the blood of Christ.
But there have been briars on your bed. Thorny, prickly things have intruded on your state of rest. Beloved, God is saying that you can get your stuff back, and it's going to be easy; and you can and should REST throughout the process.
Finally, don't be afraid of the warfare that comes against you during this time.
It's smoke and mirrors. You don't have to be afraid. In the dream, the enemy–the strongman–couldn't do a thing about the fact that we had just plundered his house. He blustered and put up an angry front, but he had no authority even though we plundered his house!
We simply don't understand the power of the blood of Jesus.
With His blood, Jesus purchased ALL authority back from the enemy. Matthew 28:18-20 says:
And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, ‘All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.' Amen.”
Because Jesus now has ALL authority, He can deliver nations to us. He commissions us to go because He has ALL authority. And as we go, He promises: “I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”
Beloved, Jesus has the keys. The strongman's door is unlocked.
The strongman can't defend anything. He took your stuff, but you can easily get it back. All you have to do is go in and take it. Exercise your God-given access to an open heaven. Take the practical steps necessary to get back whatever has been stolen from you. Heal those old situations. Enter into God's rest.
The strongman's door is unlocked. God is your Judge, and He judged on your behalf the moment His Son took His last breath on Calvary's cross. Go get your stuff, beloved. Take back what's yours. It's going to be easy.
