Although this dream is personal to me and has much to say to me personally, I feel that it could be helpful to others, to reveal part of God's nature and His love and care for us.
I began to walk up a hill, which was very difficult. There were cars to my side and I knew I could explore them and their drivers, but I was determined to make it to the top of the hill. At this point I knew I was dreaming and everything in the dream became clearer to my eyes. I made my way up the hill walking under and around many trees, saying,
"Lord, please help me find the top."
I shortly did, came through a wall of greenery and saw a house. It was very pretty and on lots of land. I was amazed at the detail and beauty (I still knew it was a dream). But, I decided to walk back around through the forest to another clearing. I peered through and saw an even bigger house, even more beautiful, on even more land! I realized I was inside the trunk of a tree and could only see out through a few holes in the bark. I tried to back up and out of the trunk but there was a large cobweb in the way. As I sat there trying to figure it out I heard the voice of an older woman, and she began to guide me out under the webs. Though the voice came from outside my body it was as though it was inside as well. When I got out of the tree I was facing the back yard of the house. There was a family playing on a swing set.
From around the corner came an even younger man's voice, saying,
"Yes, I am here."
As I came around the corner I saw the young man, maybe 20 at most, sitting down talking to someone at the end of a sidewalk. He had short, blonde, spiky hair! When I came up to Him, I noticed His shirt had some writing with the word "Jesus" on it!
I laughingly said,
"You're wearing one of your own shirts!!"
He smiled at me, as if to say "you know Me, and you know that I'm here and everything is ok," and then turned back to the one to whom He had been talking (as though he were counseling the person).
I walked down the sidewalk in the opposite direction and came to a house. When I enter, it was beautiful: Dark wood, a peaceful atmosphere, and the feeling I was the only other person there.
After hesitating out of deep reverence, thinking that this was the great "House of Yahweh," I finally exclaimed,
The answer came in the full and rich voice of an older, distinguished man, from high above my head, as though it came from the sky (yet I heard it reverberate in the room I was standing):
"Yes, I am God the Father. We am one and we are doing fine."
At this I was completely shocked! "We am one"! I immediately knew He was speaking of Jesus and the HolySpirit. But instead of "we are one" He said "we am one." Yet in the next sentence He says, "We are doing fine." I got the impression, do not worry about us, everything is under control, but thank you for being concerned.
When He spoke, it was the most inviting voice. It was though this was where I was supposed to be—the end of my journey. Though the house felt familiar, it was as though there were countless hours to be spent exploring it. And all the while, the Father would be with me, since it was His house. Not to disrespect or belittle them, but it was as though the HolySpirit and Jesus were simply pointing me to, and preparing me for, meeting the Father. He was the reason for the journey and He was my destination. He was "God the Father" and it was in His house that I belonged.
This is where the dream ended.
The HolySpirit had guided me out of a hollow tree, so that I could actually go where I was looking. He encouraged me to listen to Him, just as I did when He led me out of the tree (my flesh), and reminded me that He loved me just as I loved Him.
Jesus encouraged me by letting me know He was here, and that He was already speaking to someone else shows me that He is always open to talk to us. He gives witness of Himself by "wearing one of His own shirts"! If we have anything on our mind, He is open to speak to us.
And the Father is the One for Whom they both prepared me. The reason for me existing, and for my journey!
Truly, "they is one" in a way we can never fully comprehend! Glory to Yahweh for this beautiful revelation! His nature is amazing and we can only stand in awe when faced with His presence.
As you read this site, you will hopefully come to know Yahweh more fully.
But all of this continuing knowledge is useless unless and until you come into union with Him. I use the word union because it is truly a marriage. It is that deep connection we all seek, for which we most often look in other people. However, the truth is that our hearts will only be fulfilled when we enter that union in fullness with the One Who made us.
This is the grace of God, that He has not stayed distant for us only to worship as Creator. But He has come unto us, even become one of us—in His Son, ChristJesus—in order to share an intimate union with us. He desires such closeness that it truly will envelope our entire life, transforming us into something new and wonderful.
You may have already entered this union with Him and only seek to know Him better through reading here. But if you have not, as you do read, let this Gospel sink into your heart as you read it now.
God loves you, and has cast your sins into the sea. He has sent His only Son as the Savior of the world—that includes you.
That Son, JesusChrist, was born as a man through a virgin who had given her life to Yahweh; He lived without sin, reflected the glory of His Father, God, in all His words and deeds, and was persecuted even unto death because of it.
His death upon a cross was the powerful explosion that separated you from your life of death. It remains for you, now, to enter into that death with Him. As you die to the one you are now, a person separated from God from your many sins, you will be born anew, with a nature predisposed to live rightly. This gift is free to you, with nothing you can do to earn it. It is the mercy of God to offer it to you, as He loves you so much! All you must do is receive it by trusting Him to have delivered you. Simply place your life in His hands and embrace the freedom that came through that death on the cross.
The Gospel is that Jesus did not remain dead, but rose again on the third day after His crucifixion! Death could not hold Him, as He was without sin. And so death will not be able to hold you, as you identify with Him fully through your trust in Him. Let go of yourself and confess Him as Lord of your life. The power of His death and resurrection will work in you all that your Creator has destined for you. You will truly enter a new life and experience that intimate union you have been seeking all of your life.
So ponder these words as you read here of this great God—Yahweh—and all that He has revealed to His creation. Let His Spirit testify to your heart that these words are true, that God is Love, and that He sent His Son so that you might receive the life that is unbound by time and space. As you feel that witness in your heart, simply believe and receive what He is offering to you, even now, and begin your new life as a child of God.
Please write to me and let me know when you take this step, as I will be your brother in Christ—we will be one in Him!

26He made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the surface of the earth, having determined appointed seasons, and the boundaries of their dwellings, 27that they should seek the Lord, if perhaps they might reach out for him and find him, though he is not far from each one of us. 28'For in him we live, and move, and have our being.' As some of your own poets have said, 'For we are also his offspring.' (Acts 17:26-28)
