I Had A Dream With Jesus Saying To Me Some Of The Words In Matthew 25:36-37

Jesus-the-King

I had a dream today (9/26/2018), hearing a small gentle voice from Jesus while sitting in the kitchen who said to me: “you have clothed Me and gave Me something to drink.”

I immediately knew the passage and the One speaking with me. I responded with “Lord when did I clothed You and give You something to drink?” I didn’t get an answer but I know that the passage in Matthew 25, Jesus tells the group that did it, that they did do it and the other group who didn’t, that they did not do it. He didn’t reply to me because His answer was obvious. That’s what I think.

I wonder why I got that dream from the Lord?

Below are the passages that came to me when Jesus spoke to me in the dream.

Matthew 25:34-40

34 Then the King will say to those on His right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world.

35 For I was hungry
and you gave Me something to eat;
I was thirsty
and you gave Me something to drink;
I was a stranger and you took Me in;
36 I was naked and you clothed Me;
I was sick and you took care of Me;
I was in prison and you visited Me.’

37 “Then the righteous will answer Him, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry and feed You, or thirsty and give You something to drink? 38 When did we see You a stranger and take You in, or without clothes and clothe You? 39 When did we see You sick, or in prison, and visit You?’ 40 “And the King will answer them, ‘I assure you: Whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of Mine, you did for Me.’

Why Did Jesus Allow The Demons To Enter Into The Pigs?

demons-into-swine

Why would Jesus not save the pigs with the man?

Matthew 8:28-34, Mark 5:1-17, Luke 8:26-37

Everything that Jesus did was done with purpose.

Insight: Pigs
Under the Old Covenant, was an unclean animal (Deuteronomy 14:8).
In the New Testament, they are illustrated as sin (2 Peter 2:22)

Jesus explained with the illustration of the pigs that those who are unclean (being in sin) will be used and then terminated by the enemy of our souls. 

2 Timothy 2:26

Then they may come to their senses and escape the Devil’s trap, having been captured by him to do his will.

Another lesson that Jesus revealed was that with humanity, being created in God’s image means more to Him than animals. Jesus protected the man from being killed by the demons but allowed them to go into the pigs to make it crystal clear how much He loves us.

The demons called themselves Legion, think about that for a moment. A Roman legion was comprised of 5000 men. Demons hate humanity so much that they would go to any length if necessary to destroy us. 

Another reason that many demons went into the man was to make it harder for an exorcist to cast it out, being stronger in numbers. They wanted to make sure that their assignment would be completed but they did not put Jesus in their equation. 

Those who put animals above people have a love that’s twisted. We must be kind to animals but never in any circumstances choose an animal over a person. 

Why Does The Scripture Say That We Are Good-For-Nothing Slaves?

Lk17

Luke 17:10

10 In the same way, when you have done all that you were commanded, you should say, ‘We are good-for-nothing slaves; we’ve only done our duty.’”

Why did Jesus seem to say that we should have the mentality of being an unworthy slave when doing God’s will?

Jesus is not saying that we should look down on ourselves as being worthless. What He is saying is that we should have an attitude of humility. We are truly unworthy of Jesus’ love through His death and resurrection. He didn’t have to die but His love for us compelled Him to do it.

Jesus wants us to always have a mind of humility so that we would not drift away from Him. Pride shoves dependency on Jesus away and puts it on us.

Those who humble themselves, Jesus exalts.

1 Peter 5:5-6

5 In the same way, you younger men, be subject to the elders. And all of you clothe yourselves with humility toward one another, because

God resists the proud
but gives grace to the humble.

6 Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God, so that He may exalt you at the proper time

James 4:6

6 But He gives greater grace. Therefore He says: God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble.

The word grace in Greek refers to receiving God’s favor.

Let us always exalt Christ by obeying Him through His Word

The verse above came to my mind today with its own explanation. I believe that the Lord gave it to me to share it. May it bless you as it did me.
