Genesis 41:32 says; ‘And the dream was repeated to Pharaoh twice because the thing is established by God, and God will shortly bring it to pass.’ Has this ever happened to you? Has God given you the same dream more than once? It has happened to me.
This doesn’t happen often, however, every now and then God will give me the same dream at least twice in one night, sometimes over and over again…until I get it.
Let me share my dream with you; in this dream, I was led to a house. As I walked up to the door, I took hold of the door knob and realized it was unlocked. Reluctantly, I went into the house. This house, in the dream, belonged to my grandparents and great grandparents and many other family members before them. I knew it was a place that held my inheritance and I knew in my spirit that it was time to take what belonged to me, my inheritance that had been laid up for me. It was a house that had no limits. What I mean by that is that I walked into room after room, filled with wonderful things, however I never saw the end of the rooms, it just kept going.
In the first dream, I was timid about the inheritance and felt I should gather it and share it with all my other family members, like cousins and aunts, but even in the dream I could feel that wasn’t the right perspective. I woke up.
When I went back to sleep I dreamed the same thing again. This time I was amazed and delighted that the door was open and I knew it was opened just for me, that no one else would find this particular door open to them. I knew this because there were people all around and no one else found the door unlocked – this was MY door and MY property and MY inheritance. I was excited! I quickly went into the house and began gathering the treasured inheritance. There were all kinds of treasures, all from things I enjoy, like antiques, sewing, quilts, jewelry, emeralds, books, journals, kitchen appliances, beautiful pictures and furniture, there were even valuable treasures for my grandkids. In this second dream a man was in the house and he kept handing me treasures and saying ‘and this is for you…and this is for your daughter and this for your grandchildren…and this is for you also….here take this, it’s yours’…treasure after treasure was handed to me. As I looked through the rooms, I was amazed at my inheritance. In every place I found wonderful treasures and I also found money, coins and paper money that was hidden everywhere, in the oddest places. Just like the first dream, this house had no end. It simply went on and on.
As I awoke from the second dream the Lord said to me ‘the door is open, your inheritance is a sure thing, go on in and partake of what is yours.’
These words took me back to something I studied a few days ago. I was looking at the word AMEN. I have always been taught and understood it to mean ‘so be it’ and that is part of its meaning. However it also means ‘a sure thing, something already completed.’ As the Lord spoke to me that morning I felt He was putting His AMEN on that dream. It is already done, go on in, the door is open for you.
I meditated on this dream for several hours and the Lord took me to several scriptures, I want to share them with you today.
We have an inheritance in God. Scriptures makes that plain to us.
Ephesians 1:14; ‘In Him also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestined according to the purpose of Him who works all things according to the counsel of His will, that we who first trusted in Christ should be to the praise of His glory. In Him you also trusted, after you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation; in whom also, having believed, you were sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise, who is the guarantee of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, to the praise of His glory.’
Psalm 37:29; ‘The righteous shall inherit the land, and dwell in it forever.’
Colossians 1:12; ‘giving thanks to the Father who has qualified us to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in the light.’
Our inheritance comes through Jesus, who IS THE DOOR, as John 10:9 tells us. Isaiah 22:22 says Jesus will open doors no man can shut. In my dream, the door was open day and night BUT only open for me to walk in, no one else could walk into my inheritance for me, I had to turn the knob and walk in for myself.
Finally, Isaiah 45:3 says; ‘I will give you the treasures of darkness and hidden riches of secret places that you may know that I, the Lord, who call you by your name, am the God of Israel.’ Throughout the dream, as I walked through this place of my inheritance, I was continually finding hidden riches and treasures – just as this scripture says, I literally found treasures and money in every room I walked into.
To summarize these dreams from the Lord. First of all, it was repeated twice because it is established in Christ. Secondly, the door was open, Jesus is saying ‘come on in, it’s time, come in and receive your inheritance.’
You see Jesus said ‘I came that you might have life and have it more abundantly.’ Jesus never intended for His people to live without what they need, quite the opposite. He said ‘I will give you hidden riches and treasures just because I AM YOUR GOD.’
Finally, you simply have to walk through the door, without timidity and lay hold of what is yours. There is no battle for it, the battle is already won. Just simply believe and trust God’s promises in His word. He has an inheritance ready for you to take, hidden treasures ready to place into your hands…will you walk through the door? Will you lay hold of all that belongs to you today? It’s ready NOW, lay hold.
Prayer for Today: Father, by faith, we take hold of the doorknob and turn it, we walk into our inheritance, and lay hold of all that belongs to us today, not tomorrow, we take it today, in Jesus name. Show us what to do, show us where the hidden treasures are that you have laid up for us. For this we give you praise, in Jesus name. Amen.
