Over the years, the Holy Spirit has show me, some very fascinating scenes in my mind. They have ranged from sailing vessel at sea, fortresses, television personalities and colorful dragons. Yes, you read correctly.
A couple of years ago, I was praying and the Holy Spirit showed me, an incredible scene. I would call it, a vision because I was awake. I’m not sure of the appropriate term. I would love to see what you make of it. I do have an idea and will share it. Yet, I’d love to get your responses.
In the vision, I saw three dragons and each was a distinctive color. The first is a blue dragon and I could see the sparks coming out of its mouth. The second one is a red dragon and one could see the plumes of smoke coming from its nostril. The last is a white dragon. You could see ice vapors coming out of its nostrils.
You might think that I’d be afraid. Why should I be? As, I am with my Father then I’ve no reason to fear. Did they notice me? I don’t think so. As I continue to look, I asked, “What is this?”
It’s one thing to encounter dragons in a fantasy role playing game; it’s another to encounter such creatures in a vision. My attention was drawn to the mouths of each dragon. A dragon’s greatest weapon is its breath.
As I continued looking, each dragon transformed into a human being. As I considered this, I felt my Father saying, “Our words are like the breath weapon of each dragon.” How so?
The red dragon belches out flames of fire. As I looked at the red dragon turned human, I could see unchecked anger pouring out of the man’s mouth. It was easy to see the destruction caused when a man’s word is filled with anger and rage. Would you agree that this is a possible interpretation?
I know, from my role playing days, that the next two would not breathe fire. So, it’s no surprise to see the blue dragon breathe out lightning bolts. What type of words could be comparable to bolts of lightning? How about words of judgments? As I watch the blue dragon turned human, I could see a critical spirit surrounding him. Words of judgments, condemnation and criticism came forth from his lips.
As for the last, I did not know what to expect. This creature breath weapon is the opposite of a red dragon. A white dragon’s breath is icy cold and can literally freeze you. As I watch the creature turned human, I wondered“What type of words would be the equivalent?” Here is what I saw, in the vision.
When this guy is around, I saw a chilling of dreams and hope. After encountering this guy, people seem to become frozen in their track. They are no longer pursuing their dreams or their passions. When I originally saw this, I did not know what to make of it.
What do you suppose the last one represent? What type of words could do this? What could instill such a lack of motivation or drive? Should I add apathy to the list of effect? Would unbelief and discouragement be good candidates for a breath weapon consisting of our words?
As then, I strongly believe the above is a warning about the power of our words. I, for one, don’t typically think of my words being the equivalent to a dragon’s breath. Yet, our words do cut deeply into a person. For me, this is the scary part and quite humbling. What about you?
Just as our words can wreak havoc, we also have the ability to do the opposite. For Proverbs 18:21 says:
21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue,
And those who love it will eat its fruit.
Proverbs 12:18 says:
18 There is one who speaks rashly like the thrusts of a sword,
But the tongue of the wise brings healing.
Proverbs 15:4 says:
4 A soothing tongue is a tree of life,
But perversion in it crushes the spirit.
Is this not amazing? Not only can we speak words of destruction, we have the power to do the exact opposite. It’s a free choice. Shall we speak words of life and point the way to Christ Jesus? Or, shall we speak like the dragons in the above vision?
I really would love to hear your thoughts on the above vision? What is your take on what I described?
