Watch Out For Wasp and Hornets

Last week I had two dreams about wasp/hornets trying to build a nest on the back of my patio.  In my dream I was unaware of the several five to six nest being built.  I casually brushed them off as one flew near my head.  One of the people in my dream noticed the nest and quickly warned me about them.  I made a mental note to get some spray but still ignored them.  Two days later, I dreamed of a swarm of wasp or hornets, covering a tree.  There was a child I was trying to protect, and noticed the wasp came down and covered the child.  The child stood there motionless but still stood.  I remembered the spray.  It was as though the wasp could read my  mind and they left the child and went back into the tree.  I thought there is no way a child could be standing or even live after that attack but the child, although looked sick was still breathing and living.  I knew the child would be OK.  The swarm then left the tree as if a wind came and blew them away.
I wanted to share that dream with you for two reasons.  First, wasps or hornets in a dream mean “higher demonic power” .  I truly believe God speaks to us in dreams either in a warning, to show us something or to pray against future endeavors.  So I looked up about wasps and hornets and compared them to the natural world.  A tree in a dream means leadership.  A child in a dream is figurative to just that nevertheless I was going to protect it even though I sat back and watched what happened. 
Last week while at the Destiny Leadership Conference, a pastor from Texas who is used in the gift of Wisdom/Knowledge came up to Jeff and told him that he saw bees and wasps around him but God was sending a wind to blow these away.  It would leave Jeff standing, as a gold statue, sweet as honey.  Afterwards, I told the man my dream. We both smiled.   Amazing how God reveals!  
Here is the correlation between my interpretation and the actual wasp or hornet.
  • A swarm is a group of insects moving in large numbers, and many species of insects are known to move in swarms. When wasps swarm, the situation can be dangerous because wasps are stinging insects that become aggressive very quickly. Unlike many bee species, most wasps are capable of stinging numerous times because their stinger is not barbed. A wasp or swarm of wasps that feels threatened will sting continuously until they feel safe again.
  • The enemy of our soul, especially higher demonic power will come in a swarm.  This power is aggressive, comes very quickly with stinging remarks not stinging just once but on a continuous basis with poisonous venom that causes division.  It swarms the body.  Attacks the body and cause the body to seem almost dead.

___________________________________________________

  • Many wasp species swarm primarily to protect their nest. If wasps sense their nest is in jeopardy, they may swarm the area to fend off the perceived attacker. Wasps are known to swarm people and animals if their nest is disturbed. Although most wasp species, like yellow jackets, build their nests in the eaves of houses and in trees, some wasps build their nests in bushes or plants such as ivy, and so they can be disturbed much more easily and unintentionally, causing a swarm reaction.
  • Higher demonic power will build in false or perceived leadership or in people who desire control.  Once disturbed the power starts to swarm with anger, bitterness and unforgiveness and quickly will get others to do so also.
____________________________________________________
  • Wasps may also swarm when they are searching out a new nest location. This is not a threatening swarm, as they are simply moving in a group to locate the building site for their nest. If you disrupt a swarm of wasps looking for a nest, they may become aggressive. Many wasp species, such as paper wasps and mud daubers, can be aggressive any time they are away from a safe haven like their nest, and so you should avoid coming in contact with them.
  • Principalities are usually assigned and proceed over a location.  However spirits move looking for whom they can reside and set up camp.  They can become aggressive when they are disturbed by prayer and a move of God.  They will do anything to stop a move of God, the miracles of God and cause hopelessness in a body of believers.

____________________________________________________

  • Social wasp species, like hornets, have a hierarchy system with a single queen, numerous male suitors and sterile female workers. The queen hornet is responsible for beginning the nest creation before the female workers step in to finish construction. During this process, the males and other female bees are extremely protective of their queen, and may become aggressive and swarm easily.
  • Demonic Powers usually are not alone.  They bring with them other spirits looking for hosts.  Usually there is one who starts and dominates who quickly spreads gossip, rumors and lies, which in turn goes forward adding to and builds the nests.  It is another way to cause division in the body, people are deceived into protecting the one who is causing the division.
____________________________________________________

Some wasp species can be aggressive without provocation, and may swarm or attack for no perceived reason. Paper wasps, for example, are naturally aggressive wasps that may attack people or animals without any real provocation. Because flying wasps can be difficult to identify in motion, the best course of action is to distance yourself from a wasp as much as possible to avoid giving the insect a reason to sting.

Why does the demonic power come all of a sudden?  It seems for no reason, yet when there is a move of God it attracts all forms of higher power to put a stop to it.  The best action is pray against it in the Spirit.  Distance yourself to the one causing division.  Do not listen to the lies or gossip to avoid getting stung.  Run to God, pray, read and keep yourself in the Father’s arms for safety.

Wasps eat animal food mostly and never store any honey. They make their nests from paper and colonies only last a season.  The basic color for wasps is black and yellow stripes. Some wasps have some red as well. We have about eight kinds of wasps. Americans call them “yellow jackets”. Wasps also have yellow legs.
 Hornets are particularly big wasps. They live in similar paper nests and eat other insects. Though they look and sound fearsome, hornets are not really more dangerous than other wasps and perhaps even a bit less aggressive.
Deuteronomy 7:19-21

Remember the great terrors the LORD your God sent against them. You saw it all with your own eyes! And remember the miraculous signs and wonders, and the strong hand and powerful arm with which he brought you out of Egypt. The LORD your God will use this same power against all the people you fear.

Moreover, the LORD your God will send the hornet among them until even the survivors who hide from you have perished.

Do not be terrified by them, for the LORD your God, who is among you, is a great and awesome God.
Matthew Henry’s Commentary says:

In real kindness to the church, its enemies are subdued by little and little; thus we are kept on our guard, and in continual dependence on God. Corruptions are driven out of the hearts of God’s people, not all at once, but by little and little. The precept with this promise is, that they should not make friendship with idolaters. Those that would keep from bad courses, must keep from bad company. It is dangerous to live in a bad neighbourhood; others’ sins will be our snares. Our greatest danger is from those who would make us sin against God.

We are in danger of having fellowship with the works of darkness if we take pleasure in fellowship with those who do such works. Whatever brings us into a snare, brings us under a curse.

Flying, Floating and Earthquakes

My dreams have been crazy lately.  Earthquakes in neighboring counties, people being pregnant, shopping and school boys getting into trouble, cutting my foot and other random things.  My mind at times seems to explode with creative thoughts and I wake asking God for the interpretations.  I have always been a dreamer and many times God speaks to me through the dreams and even more so when I found out that God can reveal things to you through dreams.  I go to bed each night exhausted but asking God to show me something in my sleep and look forward to what He has for me.  I lay down as if to crawl up into the lap of Jesus and rest, while he whispers in my ear new revelations and thoughts of creativity.  I may not be normal but I get excited about sleeping.

My life has always been full of dreams and I remember some of the dreams I had when I was little, the times when God spoke in an audible voice, when I seen Him as a man who continued to morph into different people while talking to Jeff, floating in the spirit at church and when I was transported in the rapture.  You can call me loony if you want, but the greatest dream or vision I had, was the night I burst through the ceiling and flying toward a bright light as the rapture of the church took place.  My mind was focused on a bright light as I was moving quickly through the trees and clouds.  I felt the breeze of the wind on my face, my feet were kicking like I was swimming and there were millions of people on my left, on my right as if we were in a line but I continued to look up.  Many voices shouting “Hallelujah!”  I was not thinking about Jeff, the boys or anyone else but I kept saying, “This is it, I finally get to see Him, be with Him with all these people!”  Within an instant, it was like I was sucked back to earth with a force and dropped into my bed.  I immediately woke up as if I bounced on the bed and was shaking all over and speaking in the heavenly language of tongues.  I was crying and immediately rolled out of bed on my knees to pray, feeling disappointed that it didn’t happen.

The nightmares came when I was a child and I remember yelling at times for my mother to come into the room for the rescue.  As I got older, I realized most nightmares come from tormenting spirits creating fear in your life.  As I became a Christian, the nightmare came again but in the form of spiritual attacks while I was sleeping.  One particular night, it was as though I was paralyzed with fear as I heard the back door slam shut as if someone came in.  I heard many tiny footsteps run down the hall into our room and surround our bed.  In this scenario, my hand was hanging off the bed exposed and a small demon like creature bit my finger causing pain.  I was trying to shake it loose but to no avail.  The other small creatures hopped up on the bed, snarling and growling causing me torment of fear.  I couldn’t seem to wake Jeff and my tongue was thickened where I could not talk, suffocating under my own breath.  As I finally spoke the name of Jesus, the creatures were immediately swept out of the room by the presence of God.  I opened my eyes and covered my head and prayed.  It took me a long time to get over that one, but as I continued getting stronger in my Christian walk, the enemy gave up trying to cause me fear cause I learned how to fight.

Jeff continues to sleep throughout the night with no dreams or nightmares and when he does dream it truly has significance.  Our boys had nightmares many times too, especially Lyle.  The enemy wants to create fear in our lives when he sees the potential of the damage we can do to his world in the spiritual and natural.

I love hearing about dreams, if you have had a dream there are a few of us who like to interpret so feel free to leave a comment stating your dream or share a dream with us.

Prayer:  Lord, I thank you for the dreams you give me.  Thank you for your spirit to lead and guide me throughout my adventures in my rest.  In Jesus Name amen.

I Had A Weird Dream

images-3What does a flood and a boat, electricity lines falling down and electrocuting people, a church service with special dancing, which turns out to be a wedding and eating gorilla hands and fingers have in common?  I also saw all the cut off gorilla hands crawling on the ground, looking for their fingers for they had been severed at the wrist, yet they were still alive.  Dreams.  I am a dreamer.  I believe the kerosene is still reeking in our house and making me have weird dreams, very weird dreams.  The night before, I dreamed of fighting a wasp nest, a large nest.  I would spray them with a chemical and they would die.  I researched wasp, and it means a higher demonic power.  I am glad that I was killing them off while boarding a train. 

Research tells us that God speaks to us in our dreams.  Many people dream but never remember.  It is also good to keep a dream journal to look back on the play of words in your dream.  If you could remember if your dream is in color, that is good and from God.  If it is in black and white, then it is not from God but from the oppressor.  This past summer, when conducting a weekly bible study, one of the ladies attending dreamed she was Sharon Stone.  Little did she realize the next bible study lesson was about ‘sharing a stone’.  God really does have a sense of humor and He really does want us to find the treasure and search out a meaning.  

So here is what I got:  

Jeff was trying to drive my car with me in it, over a bridge, flood waters over the bridge with a large yacht next to us…If a flood blocks your path while driving a car, an emotional hurdle is indicated, that you must cross to reach your goal ….To dream of electricity, symbolizes vigor and life energy. You need to be revitalized. Alternatively, the dream suggests that you need to conserve your energy.  To dream that the electricity is out, indicates your lack of insight and perspective on a situation. To see live electrical wire, foretells that enemies will disturb your plan.  In my dream, the wire snapped and wrapped around Jeff which made him fall down, then the wire came after me as I crossed the road.  

The dream then went to a church service in which we were suppose to be inside a large building yet it was also outside.  Jeff was going to preach for about 20 minutes but first our dance team celebrated in a dance.  images-5Right after the dance, the wedding took place.  The Bride and Groom in which I didn’t know served a platter  of these fried gorilla hands.  He went on to tell us how the hands were running around looking for their fingers without any bodies.  And, I could see this documentary unfolding before my eyes.  Strange yes?  Throughout our travels, I have always tried different foods but oddly enough I was hesitant on trying to eat these deep fried delicacy.  Hands means to expect big work ahead, meanwhile must take better care.  To dream that you are eating with others, signifies harmony, intimacy, merriness, prosperous undertakings, personal gain, and/or joyous spirits. To dream that you are attending or going to a dance, indicates a celebration and your attempts to achieve happiness.

So there you have it!  Do you have an interpretation of this dream, if you do, please leave me a comment.  I am looking forward to hear from you and in the mean time, I will look forward to the dreams I may have tonight, hopefully it will be restful and not so strange.
