This is “The Dream”… not a dream personally given to me, but a dream given to another that applies to every one of us pressing on into a new stage of “being”…to everyone one of us entering into a new age within ourselves. Just as we passed from the age of the law to the age of truth and grace, now is the time to pass into the kingdom age from just seeing it to finally enter into full peace, joy and righteousness. We can not put new wine into old wineskins, can we? Each one in his own time and order goes from stage to stage and some (if God permits) go on into perfection.
I love this dream recorded by Maurice Nicoll in his book “The Mark”, an astounding writing full of deep revelations and wisdom:
“Someone pushes me up a grass slope. There is a ditch. It is not wide but difficult to cross. The difficult-to-cross ditch at the top of the slope is full of the bones of prehistoric animals- the remains of violent things, of beasts of prey, of monsters, of snakes. They go far down into this abyss. There is a plank to cross by, but the air seems full of restraining power, like the invisible influence of some powerful magnet; and this, with the fear of crossing this depth- although the width is not wide- holds me back. I cannot say for how long for there is no ordinary time in all this. Then I find myself across- on the other side. What wonderful vision do I now behold? I see someone teaching or drilling some recruits. That is all. At first sight there seems nothing marvelous. He smiles. He indicates somehow that he does not necessarily expect to get any results from what he is doing. He does not seem to mind. He does not show any signs of impatience when they are rude to him. The lesson is nearly over, but this will not make any difference to him. It is as if he said, “Well, this has to be done. One cannot expect much. One must give them help, though they don’t want it.”
It is his invulnerableness that strikes me. He is not hurt or angered by their sneers or lack of discipline. He has some curious power but hardly uses it. I pass on marveling that he could do it. I could not take on such a thankless task. Eventually I come to a place, perhaps a shop, where boats are stored. Beyond is the sea.
The author then gives the understanding of the dream which I will condense in my own words: The message is about coming into a place of “no violence,” but first a gulf has to be crossed over… We have to move on from the old way of attacking and devouring that the prehistoric beasts represent (even the “man of war” in us.) This is about going in a new direction and gaining a new will purified from violence.
The recruits represent a people who could learn something EVENTUALLY. If you’re like me, it’s taken you a long time to understand that people (including ourselves) can not learn something until hearts are ready for the truth. Truth can never be forced on others, but oh how we have tried, eh? Only God can open people’s hearts and minds, so our part is to say and do what we are called to do by Him with love, patience and faith. Ah, to put “NO EXPECTATIONS” on others and to do all things unto God trusting Him and committing ourselves and others to Him will take a “quantum leap!”… a leap I finally can see myself doing in the Spirit.
We are to be like Solomon, not men of war like David in order that the recruits in this life will have true ones to be their examples… They can not be trained except that there are forerunners who have their lives ruled by God… ruled by peace.
So tell me: Are there any prehistoric beasts like hatred, unforgiveness, division, jealousy, bitterness, resentment and more in your life that you need to get over? If you like Maurice Nicoll have crossed over, are you loving God by feeding His sheep patiently with love and faith? If so, know that all of the lost – the wicked and the tormented which the sea represents are waiting for you: Yay, All the world is moaning and groaning waiting for the perfected ones… the ones of peace and goodwill… even the nonviolent ones! See them coming and see yourself as one of them!
“I see YOU!” saith the Lord!
I like your interpretation of the dream. True, we cannot put new wine in old skin and love and peace is all in this new world, new age. I value dreams thus days, since especially after learning that when in deep state sleep we connect back to our higher self and source of creation God and it’s then that he restores our bodies and spirit.
Thank you so much for enriching me by your comment. I also love and value dreams, especially when they reveal things to come and contain answers in them of what I’ve been seeking to know. I’m so deeply grateful that my daughter was rescued from marrying the wrong man because of a dream. A minister had prayed with her that God would give ME a dream concerning this man and my daughter would ask me if I had any dreams, never mentioning the reason that she had asked. A few weeks later after her asking several times, the Lord gave that dream.
A great source of inspiration to me are the dreams recorded in the Bible. The ones given to Joseph and Daniel were instrumental not only in their salvation, but in the salvation of the people of Israel. I pray that you also will be given such dreams for you are a leader and you have a heart that’s concerned about the welfare of others.
May you have many, many wonderful dreams dear Kinge.
Blessing and love,

It’s inspiring and moving to hear your testimony on your dream and the life changing Blessings. I believe the Bible true to tell us that in our dreams, we interact with the Divine as God communicated to his people and choose sun as Jacob and Daniel in dreams. They are sacred, if only we knew how to interprete. Thank you for the good wishes and be Blessed
Your response “if only we knew how to interpret” prompted me to think about how interpretations come and I became aware that they must be given to us from God because the reasoning mind is not capable of knowing them. I believe that if we don’t have them, it’s because we didn’t “ask” which I must confess I have not always done. Because of your reply I will be sure to do so now.
May you find much delight in asking and knowing that the One Who delights in His children trusting Him will give you your heart’s desire in this matter.
May you have powerful dreams Kinge and “Wow” interpretations!

You are Blessed to have been gifted the gift of interpretation. Amen to your prayer and Blessing. I do get powerful dreams and realizations. They are even intense when I practice silence which helps self realization and that of the world around me. It reminds me that all is one, and everything and everyone come from God and that he is in everything and everyone if we take time and look/feel. Thank you again, be blessed
