On November 6th, I dreamed that I was in a small building with several rooms and there were many young men and some boys getting ready for a “ceremony” and to my surprise none of them looked happy. They were all well dressed and each held a ring in a box in his hand. I saw Jamal Parrish, he was dressed in a very expensive looking golden-bronze colored suit with a bow tie. A woman was prepping him and excitedly telling him what an honor this was. She was telling all the young men that they were special to be selected for this ceremony. But no matter what she said, none of them appeared to share the excitement. I also recognized Maurice Robinson.
Finally, all the young men went out onto the field. The field was lit up like a football stadium. And a huge platform stage was there. On it was Bishop Long and other men but I didnt know their faces. Across the street I could see many people looking at the ceremony. Some looked like they wanted to cross the street and come to it, but were hesitant. The boys were all lined up in front of the platform with their rings in hand.
Then Eddie Long got up and began to sing a song to them. It was called “Celebration”. He was dressed in what appeared to be black velour jogging suit. The song was extremely sensual and he moved his body sensually as he sang it. The words I remember were “I want to look into your eyes, then lay you down…”
I was standing behind the platform and I could see each of the boys facing the platform. As Eddie Long was singing all I could see in their eyes was fear.
After the song Jamal Parrish got up and gave a speech. His speech (from what I understood) was supposed to extol the privilege and benefit and honor of being selected for the ceremony. But as he talked he became angry and started to say that he was disgusted and that the ceremony was not what it was put out to be. No one stopped him, not even Eddie Long.
When the ceremony concluded, I followed them back into the building. I was standing there watching as they all silently prepared to get out of their fine clothes. Then a young boy who appeared to me to be about 13-14 years old told me to come into a side room where there was what looked like an old office desk. He was dressed in a dark suit with stripes and a black bow tie. When we got into the room he asked me “Are you a member of New Birth” I told him no I wasnt. He then asked me ” How long have you attended here?” I told him that I didnt attend the church either I was just here to watch. His eyes filled up with tears. “Then I have something I need to tell you”, he said. I hurriedly got out a paper and pen and wrote down either my website or phone number (I cant remember which) and gave it to him.
At that point, I awoke.
I’ve discussed dreams Ive had on the blog before. Twice to be exact here and here and Ive really been blessed to hear the responses. Of course I don’t share every dream but considering all that has come to light, I felt I should share this. If, after reading this you feel the Lord has gives you insight or if you feel it is simply a dream with no meaning whatsoever, I’d like to hear your thoughts or interpretation.
Additional question (if you’d like to comment): Are dreams tied to prophecy in the sense that some prophecy is “forthtelling (general)” and some is “foretelling(specific)”? Thus, a dream can also be foretelling or forthtelling?
