When I entered the fellowship building I heard the words “Pool of Siloam.” I began to think about what it meant.
Couple it with this.
I had a dream last night about a baseball stadium in New England. In the dream. In the dream people entered and were given a position. Some took the field, others filled the bleachers. There was one man who was very high up. Dressed in a uniform, he was high above the bleachers at the edge of a roof. Standing on what looked like a small “diving board” this gloved man would jump and cheer. No ball came near him, but he was excited. And then the announcer shouted over the PA system, “Look out!” and at that moment the man threw what looked like a man from the high position. The effigy dressed in a uniform fell to the bleacher seats. And he laughed.
I had no real revelation about the falling part. The rest so dovetailed with my friend Mark’s message. While talking to another friend, Pat, the thought came forth that the representation may well be symbolic of puffery and not being exalted. I leave it for you to contemplate.
While worshiping, I had a vision of the pool and felt the Lord say that this is an opportunity for the body of Christ to enter in in be cleansed of all that is going on in their life.
The story comes from the book of John 9:6-11. Jesus spits on the ground mixing clay with His saliva. Wiping it on the man’s eyes, He tells him to go wash in the pool. The man was a man who had been blind from birth. He could see! People knew he was the blind man who had been in the city.
I felt the Lord say that like the pool in the book of John, God was opening the “pool” of His goodness to all believers. The Lord was removing our “blindness” and asking us to “wash” off. The name Siloam means “sent”. I believe that it was symbolic of each of us opening our eyes that have been closed since birth that we might see all that God has for us. And that we would allow ourselves to be sent. “Once I was blind and now I see.”
When combining Mark’s message with the vision and the dream, I think our hearts out to be open to expectancy. The light of the Lord is revealing that which we have not previously seen.
Consider letting the dream that has been hidden to be revealed and released.
