For the past few weeks, God has been giving me dreams concerning holidays. Yet He isn’t referring to the holiday itself, but the season it represents.

I shared with you the dream about Thanksgiving. He was referring to a time of giving thanks for all the wonderful things He has done in our life.

And then God gave me another dream. This dream was about the season of Christmas.

In the dream, I was completely prepared for Christmas. The gifts were all wrapped and under the tree. There was nothing else I needed to do. However, on Christmas Eve, Mom had asked me to run to Walmart and pick something up for her. To which I replied, “Mom, it will be crazy out there, it is Christmas Eve!”

The word EVE was magnified in my dream.

It was magnified in picture form and the words seem to vibrate and repeat over and over again, similar to what happens when you yell into a canyon. I knew immediately that God was showing me the place we are in this present time.

We are in the EVE of something wonderful. We are in the EVE of a great celebration! We are in the EVE of a time of great thanksgiving for all the things God has done and will manifest in our lives.

The word EVE means the day before Christmas, of course. But it also means, the period of time just before an important event or happening.

This is what I felt the Lord was showing me. The time period we are in right now is the period of time just before an important event or happening. We are in the timing of the EVE of something wonderful. That doesn’t necessarily mean the day before, but the period of time before.

There was a period of time before God delivered the children of Israel from Pharaohs rule. There was a period of time before Abraham saw Isaac, the son of promise. There was a period before David became king. There is always a period before…there is always an, EVE just before every great event or happening.

If you take a moment and look at the eve of the children of Israel being delivered, you will see things appeared to get worse before it got better.

If you look at the time, the eve, before Isaac was born, you will see there was much confusion, even some doubt it appeared. During that time, Ishmael was born as Sarah and Abraham tried to fulfill Gods promise in their own way.

If you look at the time before David became king, you will see him running for his life.

Yet in all of these instances, what God said would happen, happened just as He said it would.

So shall it be in this time. God had repeatedly said we are in a time of great breakthrough. He has said we are in a time of revival. He has said things are coming that are going to be so great we will have a hard time believing them. And He is saying we are in the eve of those events, the period of time just before they happen.

John 16:13 says, “However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come.”

The word of God says, “He will tell us things to come.”

I love how the Basic English version says it. It says He will make clear to you things to come. I believe God is making things clear to us, don’t you?

So, we are in the eve of a time of celebration, what do we do? Make sure you are prepared. I am talking about your heart. Make sure your heart is ready to receive all God has for you. Increase your capacity to receive, if need be. Spend time with God. Pray in the Spirit. Worship God. He is a good God and He will do all He has said He will do. Just as He did for the children of Israel. Just as He did for Abraham. Just as He did for David…so shall He do for you. He shall bring to pass every word He has spoken to you, every promise He has made you… you are in the EVE of that time…believe it and receive it.

Meditate on this:

I say to the Lord, “You are my Lord, apart from you I have no good thing.”
Psalm 16:2
