In a recent dream I had just purchased a house. Since in the natural, I had just closed on a new home, I recognized that this referred to the timeline of the dream. It is a now word.
In the dream, a woman I know came to see if I wanted to buy her house. We talked awhile and then I decided to buy it. I paid $100 for it. That was all she wanted.
I expected there would be a period of time before I got the house. Plus, I expected I was only purchasing the house, nothing else with it. However, within days, I was notified that she had moved and I could take possession of my new property. The house was now mine.
When I arrived, I realized it was the same house I had dreamed of many times before. Over the past 25 years I have had dreams about this house. In my previous dreams it was three stories. The main floor (which was actually the second story) was the living quarters. On that floor were ample bedrooms, bathrooms, a living room, kitchen and the laundry room.
In my previous dreams, the third floor had steps leading up to it. There were evil spirits on that floor. Not that you could see them, but you could feel them and it always felt like you were fighting them if you went up to the third floor.
In my previous dream, the bottom floor was actually a house under the main house. Not just one house, but houses without end. The property and houses went on and on! I never once found the end of it. One door would open into more doors with more living quarters. It was awesome!
As I arrived at the house in the present dream, I walked into the garage. It was full. There was a vehicle, tools that had been organized, antiques and all sorts of treasures.
"Oh wow, I didn't know all this stuff was here, I thought I only bought the house," I exclaimed to the person showing me the house.
No this is all yours," they replied.
"What about her son?" I inquired, curious as to how I ended up with what I imagined would have been his inheritance.
"He didn't want it; it's all yours."
I looked through each and every room. It was filled with everything you could possibly need. On top of that, it had people who were there cleaning and organizing everything for me. They were even preparing meals and such.
I walked downstairs in the present dream, which led to the first floor. Sure enough, it was the same house that I had dreamed of in previous dreams, the one with rooms without end.
Each of those rooms was also decorated and filled with everything you could need. One door led to another and it seemed without end.
Finally, I walked out into the backyard. To my right was a lake with people sitting near it. It had a paved walking track. I started down the track, talking to the people who were with me. One was my grandmother who went to be with the Lord many years ago.
Once we walked through the property, we turned and started back to my house. My grandmother looked at me and said, "I can't walk anymore." I motioned for her son to come and help her, but he declined. "She's too heavy."
"Fine, I will do it," I said as I picked my grandmother up. Although she was old and fragile, she was extremely heavy. Yet I was able to carry her back to the house. I lowered her to the ground, and then she was gone.
I walked back into the house and even though I was dreaming, I was thinking in the dream, "the timeline of this house is now!" (Because remember, I just completed the purchase of my house in the natural.) And then the dream ended.
What does this mean? God showed me a few vital things.
The first is that the "house without end" will always be on the bottom floor. To find it we must go low. This has to do with humility. I always think of my friend, Pastor Derek, who has told me for years, "Go low, Kim, keep going low." What he means is be humble. Humility is the way to all God has for us.
Next, I thought, "OK God, what about the third floor, with the creepy stuff." His answer to me was so profound and yet so simple. He said, "As long as you allow pride to stay in your house, you will always be fighting."
I knew by "my house," He meant my life. When He told me that, I thought back to the current dream. In my previous dreams I was able to climb the stairs to the third floor. But in the current dream there was no access to the third floor or the creepy stuff! Thank God. Friends, we must keep all pride out of our life and live a life of humility.
Doesn't that make sense that pride would be on the top floor? Pride always tries to exalt itself above God and His Word. Thankfully, pride had no entrance in this current house!
As for my grandmother in the dream, she represented an inheritance we have that may have been passed down from generation to generation, through our bloodlines. Yet no one wanted to pick it up because it was heavy to carry. Not even those sons whom it rightfully belonged to! But I picked it up and carried it as I carried her.
People, it is time we claim and lay hold of our inheritance! Our inheritance is without measure—without end. Isn't that amazing!
This is a word for 2020. We have an inheritance and the timeline is now. It's funny, as I looked back over my journal from the night before I had this dream, I wrote "Inheritance! Call it forth." I knew that was part of the instruction to receive this inheritance.
Let me encourage you. You have an inheritance—if you are willing to carry it and call it forth.
Personally, I am doing several things to release my faith concerning this inheritance and encourage you to as well:
- Let's thank and praise God for this dream and its insight of inheritance.
- Declare your inheritance to come forth now in Jesus' name.
- Personally, I sowed a $100 seed into this word/dream. Why? For several reasons. I know this dream was from God and I am thankful. I want to extend my faith in the direction of my dream. In the dream I paid $100 for the house. Had it been $10, I would have sown that, but I felt the Lord personally gave me the direction to go.
- Finally, because God reminded me that one definition of sowing is to declare and call it forth, I am calling my inheritance forth and I am calling yours forth as well.
Are you willing to carry your inheritance? It may be heavy, but you can do it! The time is now. Call it forth.
