I dreamed that I was crowned the Pope, then I was afraid that this
office I cannot take it , I may become too proud, then I was asked the
group of cardinals why did u take it, I do not want it now, I have not
preached, I saw something like to preach on the coming storm. I
thought I can do that by taking teaching from a famous Indian Preacher
Paul Dhinakaran. what does this mean???
Crowned as Pope —
Isaiah 62:3 NAS You will also be a crown of beauty in the hand of the LORD, And a royal diadem in the hand of your God.
The wants to give you the authority to carry out His work to touch many lives.
Afraid to full the office:
Luke 5:10 NAS and so also were James and John, sons of Zebedee, who were partners with Simon. And Jesus said to Simon, “Do not fear, from now on you will be catching men.”
The Lord has a desire for you to be a man of great influence (like the Pope) to bring many into the kingdom of God.
Thinking you might become too proud suggests further training and confidence in the Lord and a trust in Him to keep you humble.
Which is naturally leading you to be trained by Dr.Paul Dhinakaran.
His ministry is ” Jesus Calls”, quite appropriate for additional training. He has a prophetic ministry as well which I can see in the dream by your desire to preach on the coming storm– which takes a prophetic understanding or gifting.
Dr. Paul DhinaKaran was also gripped with fear about his future ( please review his website regarding his testimony).
I found this message on his website and it might encourage you:
THE YEAR OF FAVOUR Stella Dhinakaran
And provide for those who grieve in Zion– to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair. (Isaiah 61:3)
Dearly beloved, we know that God sent His Son Jesus into this world to redeem us.
The Bible says, “To proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn, and provide for those who grieve in Zion– to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair” (Isaiah 61:2,3).
While Lord Jesus sojourned on this earth, He healed the broken hearted people, delivered the captives, proclaimed freedom for the prisoners and was a Father to the fatherless (Psalm 68:5). He also came to set the lonely in families (Psalm 68:6). In short, He came to give hope to the hopeless.
He healed the invalid who was lying near the pool of Bethesda for nearly 38 years (John 5:5-9). He healed a woman who was crippled by a spirit for 18 years and comforted her (Luke 13:11-13). When a woman, who was suffering from an infirmity for 12 years, touched the hem of His garment she was healed immediately (Luke 8:43,44). Above all, He raised a few dead people right before the eyes of their relatives (John 11:44; Luke 7:14,15; Mark 5:41,42).
In this manner He wiped away the tears of many, and enabled them to see the year of Lord’s favour. He who sent good gifts (James 1:17) to them is ready and willing to do the same for you also because He is the same yesterday, today and for ever (Hebrews 13:8).
Dearly beloved, surrender yourself and your family at the feet of God in the very beginning of this year. He cares for those who believe in Him (Nahum 1:7). Those who love God are known by Him (I Corinthians 8:3). The Lord sees your heart (Genesis 16:13). When we follow the Lord wholeheartedly, we shall receive His divine blessings. The Bible says, “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose” (Romans 8:28).
A couple had two daughters. They brought them up with much love and concern. The first daughter was called Selvi and the second was known as Lilly. Both of them attended the Sunday School regularly. Selvi was leading a nominal Christian life and did not surrender herself fully to Lord Jesus Christ. On the other hand, Lilly had accepted Him as her personal Saviour.
Both of them grew up and got married. Selvi married a person according to her own desire and chose a lavish life. Lilly married a person who had accepted Christ and lived an ordinary life. So Selvi used to mock at Lilly and thus hurt her feelings. But Lilly never lost her temper. Instead, she prayed sincerely for God to transform Selvi.
Days passed by. Selvi’s husband, who loved her wholeheartedly, suddenly became very indifferent. His eyes fell upon some other lady and he started showering his love upon her. It came as a bolt from the blue for Selvi. Only then she noticed her sister Lilly leading a happy and peaceful life inspite of her meager income. She wanted to enjoy the same kind of peace in her life also. Shedding all her pride, she went to her sister and poured her heart out to her. Seizing that opportunity, her sister started telling Selvi all about the love of Lord Jesus. Both of them began to pray together every day.
One day, Selvi surrendered her life to Lord Jesus and He transformed her completely. All her pride vanished. Just like her sister, she also started praying and fasting regularly. She poured her heart at the feet of Lord Jesus. The Lord heard her prayer and brought her husband back to her. He also transformed him through the love of his wife, and divine joy began to prevail in their home.
Dearly beloved, analyze your life today. Are you going through afflictions and tears just like Selvi? Accept Lord Jesus Christ as your personal Saviour in this New Year. Then He will certainly satisfy you with His goodness.
Prayer: Loving Lord Jesus,
You came to this world to redeem us. I believe in You. I accept You as my personal Saviour. I surrender myself at your feet. Set me free from my troubles. Bestow your favour upon me. Satisfy me with your goodness. Wipe away my tears and fill me with gladness.
In Your matchless name I pray. Amen.
