The Table (Dream Interpretation)
Thank you for the overwhelming support of my last few prophetic words. Today I wanted to share with you a dream I received from a young woman in my church about two years ago that she wanted me to interpret. I felt to share it with you now as I believe this is a relevant word for the body of Christ today!
The Table (Dream): "It was a short but powerful dream which was repeated a few times in one night. There were people from our church in the dream that I recognised (I didn’t know where I was geographically) everyone had brought plates of different amazing looking food, we all placed it on a wooden table. I looked back at the table as people were putting down the food to my surprise the table had grown huge, the size of a swimming pool and there seemed to be many more plates than I saw people bring. I noticed the whole table was wrapped in plastic wrap not just the individual plates but the whole table! All the people were standing around the table waiting to eat and commenting on how delicious the food was with mouths watering; I sensed people were waiting around for someone to unwrap the table and give them permission to eat from the table".
Interpretation: Danielle Dixon
Repeated Dream The dream was repeated as the Lord wanted to make it clear and emphasise the content.
"Different amazing looking food."
The Father has given His children amazing (definition of amazing -causing great surprise or sudden wonder) spiritual gifts and talents. The people of God are directly representing the church gathering and sharing what they have. The Lord wants people to share what they have, by bringing it to the table. The plates of amazing and different food are described this way because if you have a gift of healing, it’s amazing to the person who needs healing. If someone else brings deliverance that's amazing to that person that needs deliverance. Etc. I also believe that people have had a mind set about the spiritual gifting’s in this season God is releasing different, unusual, out of the box gifting’s that we have not seen.
"we all placed it on a wooden table..." The plates were placed on a wooden table a symbol of something corruptible in the word of God, 'human nature' is represented by wood.
"to my surprise the table had grown huge, the size of a swimming pool..." As the plates were placed on the table the table grew, representing us growing supernaturally. As we bring what we have been given to the table, in turn, more people will bring what they have (represented in the plates of food multiplying) as others see us using what we have and partake of what we bring they will want to join in.
"the whole table was wrapped in plastic wrap not just the individual plates but the whole table!..." The Father has been preserving what we have brought and not partaken of yet representing everything being in plastic not just individual gifting’s but corporately.
"I sensed people were waiting around for someone to unwrap the table..." The church is admiring what was brought but are unsure if they can come up to the table, although they were hungry and wanted to eat.
I believe the Lord is saying even though we were born in a corruptible nature he wants us to bring what we have been given to the table stop worrying if we are ready, just come as we are with our plates (spiritual gifts) he will transform us. The table is already prepared, and as we unwrap what’s on the table God will take the wraps off our gifts we have been waiting, looking expectant now it’s time to taste and see that the Lord is good.
My sense through the dream was not one of the disobedient people, but more we are called for such a time as this and we are hungry and waiting for Him to unwrap things, but he wants us to start unwrapping these gifts and share them with others. He has called us to come up and be seated at the table which will send out an invitation to others.
