On the 2nd of September 2020, I had a strange dream. I dreamed I had some “old” Easter eggs in my bag given to me by Robert Pattinson as a Valentine’s gift. The dream took place in a high-school setting. My fellow students were impressed I had been given this ‘love gift’ from Rob (who we all know is many teenage girls’ heartthrob), but I couldn’t eat them because they were not gluten-free. So, I had put them in my bag and forgotten all about them.
This dream gave me cause for a chuckle as I’m not a ‘fan girl’ of Rob Pattinson, but I pay attention to dreams from the Holy Spirit. I want to share my interpretation of this dream in the hope you will receive some encouragement for the prophetic promise the Lord is placing in our mouths in this season.
For many of us, we have forgotten some of the promises of God and prophetic words spoken over us in the past season. These have been promises of expectation and great power but many have been drowned out by life’s circumstances and distractions.
And behold, I am sending forth the promise of My Father upon you; but you are to stay in the city until you are clothed with power from on high.
Luke 24:49 NASB
In the waiting, many of us have neglected our promises. It is time to dig them out again and remember His goodness and faithfulness afresh. As we do this, He will cause us to forget the pain and suffering of this past season.
For behold, I create new heavens and a new earth, and the former things shall not be remembered or come into mind.
Isaiah 65:17 ESV
There are deep treasures He has placed within our hearts. This is the significance of the bag in my dream. Just as we have sometimes forgotten the promises of God, we may also have buried our giftings. I have a sense Holy Spirit is wanting us to rediscover these gifts as ‘Easter eggs’ and treasure them for the talents they are. He wants to use them in powerful ways for His glory.
Then God added his witness to theirs. He validated their ministry with signs, astonishing wonders, all kinds of powerful miracles, and by the gifts of the Holy Spirit, which he distributed as he desired.
Hebrews 2:4 TPT
The Spirit gives gifts and talents as He wills. It is our job to steward well what we have been so graciously given. No more hiding under a bushel! It is your time to shine. The name Robert means one whose fame shines brightly and Pattinson denotes son of Patrick. The name Patrick is one of nobility and aristocracy. This is a beautiful invitation into our righteous and royal identities as sons and daughters of the Most High God.
We are in Spirit training at the moment
The dream was set in a highschool and the Lord told me this represented a form of Spirit training for the Bride.
[The Servant of God says] The Lord God has given Me the tongue of a disciple and of one who is taught, that I should know how to speak a word in season to him who is weary. He wakens Me morning by morning, He wakens My ear to hear as a disciple [as one who is taught].
Isaiah 50:4 AMPC
As we discipline ourselves to lean in and listen to His heartbeat each morning, we will have the tongue of the wise and learned. This is a season of the mouth. It is a time to speak. But we must not be hasty or presumptious in our choice of words. The Holy Spirit will personally give us the words to speak in wisdom, love and truth as we incline our ears to hear. We must not miss our Spirit training.
In this training, we are gaining strength we never knew we could possess. Valentine’s means brave and strong. In my dream, Valentine’s Day was a past event. This implies the strength and bravery we need has already been imparted to us. We just need to walk in it by faith holding His hand. It is okay to feel fear. We just can’t let it dictate our future actions.
Do not fear what is in your mouth
This dream had personal significance for me. I could not eat the eggs because they were not ‘gluten free’. For me, this means I can’t eat them. And yet, in the dream I felt the Lord urging me to overcome this fear and put the gift in my mouth.
Likewise, I believe He is beckoning us all to put the words He has given us in our mouths and use them as effective weapons against the enemy’s onslaught. The students in my dream represent those who will marvel at the gift He has given us. It is time to shine brightly and not shrink back in fear or false humility. Here is a beautiful promise from scripture which is definitely a word for “now”.
Open your mouth wide, and I will fill it.
Psalms 81:10b NKJV
Your promise is in your mouth. Begin to declare it with me.
