Your message burns in my heart and bones, and I cannot keep silent.

"Behold the Lamb of God" (Dream/Song/Word)
On November 16, 2019, I had a dream that fits like a glove with the word the spirit of the Lord has given
me to proclaim as our present age nears its end and King Jesus manifests His presence.
However, before sharing the dream, it is important to keep in mind that the Lord can and does express
Himself to us any way He so chooses. In my experience, the Lord likes changing things up a bit. He did it
to a prophet once through a donkey, and He can do it to any of us even in this day through means that
might seem strange or, to some, even inappropriate, such as something quite worldly. I believe that the
Lord is not put off by these things and uses them to His glory. This is said for those who see the Lord
revealing Himself exclusively through scripture and no other way, no matter what. Such exclusivity is not
being challenged, for scripture is a sure anchor if used properly. However, for some, this borders on
superstition, as if the "devil will get them" or God will be upset with them if anything comes their way that
veers in the slightest from this approach. Most likely, those who box the Lord in like this limit their
experience of knowing the Lord and remain this way, until or unless He breaks in to shatter the box.
Well, here is the dream.
My wife and I were sitting in folding chairs in a dimly lit backstage of an auditorium. There was some
type of band (rock) there and they were doing a sound check. A young man walked past us with a
headset on. Directly in our view across from us was a man sitting in another folding chair. I couldn't
discern his face. All of a sudden, a song broke out; it was Come a Little Bit Closer by Jay and the
Americans . It's not necessary to print all the lyrics, which have a very worldly theme; you can find
them online.
Now, the line that stood out is this: When I heard her say, "Come a little bit closer, you're my kind
of man so big and so strong." This song kept repeating until all of a sudden when this verse came
around again and I heard come a little bit closer , the man sitting across from us belted out in tune
and in melody: Behold the Lamb of God!
My initial reaction was: how did he blend this so beautifully into this song?
So, the tune went like this: Come a little bit closer; Behold the Lamb of God! With this, my wife
jumped out of her seat and, with her arms raised high, began worshipping the Lord.
It is as if the spirit of the Lord is saying: Come closer ; I have something to share with you: Behold; see the
Lamb of God. Draw near to Him in this day. Though a lamb, He is mighty and strong and infinite in His
reach and His scope. The Lamb of God is the all in all Son of God who is summing up and heading up all
things in heaven and on earth by the power He has to subject all things to Himself. Worship Him!
Who is the king of glory? Yahweh, strong and mighty, Yahweh, mighty in war. (Psalm 24:8
"Behold the Lamb of God"
It must not be lost on us that John the Baptist proclaimed this as Jesus appeared on the scene a little under
2,000-years ago. It was the announcement of the presence of the Messiah of Israel and the embodiment
of the kingdom of the heavens on earth in His person. Heaven had come to earth in the person of the Son
of God, Yeshua, the rescuer, the deliverer, the savior of the world.
Physical structures called temples were no longer needed, for God's plan all along has been to take up
residence, by His spirit, in people, and Yeshua stood in the land of Judea as the prototype or, if you will,
the pattern of what was to commence with the cross and the empty tomb. New Jerusalem would rise up
from the grave with Yeshua, as a new creation came into being. New creation is the uniting of both heaven
(God's realm) and earth (man's realm).
And a temple I did not perceive in it [New Jerusalem], for the Lord God Almighty is its temple, and
the Lambkin. (Revelation 21:22 CLV [added])
Much is packed into these few words; I leave it for the discerning to unpack them.
What about Jay and the Americans; could this group's name play into this proclamation? After all, Jay can
stand alone as a name or be a nickname for Jacob, John, or James. Jacob was a supplanter. Could this
relate to Americans? The word supplant means: 1. To take the place of; supersede, especially through
force, scheming, or treachery. 2. To remove or uproot in order to replace with something else. Has not
American history had elements of this in it? Consider the ill-treatment of the native American Indians as
an example. Or, consider how the government has sought to overturn governments in the world in a quest
to maintain American hegemony, and our willingness to use force if needed. Could this be a message to
America today that it is time to come a little bit closer, to wake up to the reality of the Lamb of God who
takes away the sin of the world? To awaken to the king of glory, King Jesus who is the rightful possessor
of the earth and inheritor of the nations! To embrace the victor! (Interestingly, in other languages, jay
means victory or victorious .) Behold!
As for us individually, it is a call to draw near to the Lord in this hour. The whole of this dream deals with
the presence of King Yeshua as the lamb who laid down His life for the whole world, only to be gloriously
taken up again as the consummate and ultimate victor over sin and death.
All this leads to one final point. This dream speaks to the presence of Yeshua. Just as John the Baptist was
the forerunner announcing the arrival (presence) of the king of the kingdom of the heavens, pointing to
the sacrificial lamb and the cross He would face, so too, in our day (the end of man's six days), are there
forerunners being raised up to announce the soon arrival (presence) of the lamb who comes as the king
of the nations?
Now is the time to do a spiritual sound check. Are we hearing the spirit of the Lord? Are we ready to sing
a new song? Are we ready to proclaim the truth of King Jesus!
For those of you out there to whom this speaks, don't shrink back when others superstitiously doubt you—
proclaim the truth: Proclaim the presence of King Jesus . Make straight the way of the Lord. Behold the
lamb today, for soon this same lamb will appear as the King of kings to openly manifest His kingdom on
earth as the glory of God begins to fill, not only all the earth but all creation. The age of God's king
approaches. Let us not shrink back, but let us be ones who love His appearing. Let us have His song in our
"Behold the Lamb of God"
I can't say that this is from the Lord, but I wondered if, based on the date of this dream (11.16), there
might be a chapter and verse that coincides with the preceding interpretation. Interestingly, there is one
found in Acts.
Now I am reminded of the declaration of the Lord, as He said that 'John, indeed, baptizes in water,
yet you shall be baptized in holy spirit.'" (Acts 11:16 CLV)
This verse, in turn, leads us back to John the Baptist and his declaration of the lamb.
And I was not aware of Him, but He Who sends me to be baptizing in water, That One said to me,
'On Whomever you may be perceiving the spirit descending and remaining on Him, This is He Who
is baptizing in holy spirit.'" And I have seen and have testified that This One is the Son of God." (John
1:33-34 CLV)
The next day again John was standing with two of his disciples, and he looked at Jesus as he walked
by and said, "Behold, the Lamb of God!" (John 1:35-36 ESV)
I can't help but wonder if this dream signifies the coming anointing that will rise up from within the Lord's
people; a word the spirit of the Lord has impressed on my heart. In that day, we will truly know what it
means to be immersed in the holy spirit. The good news is that this will be on the cusp of the presence of
our beloved Lord Jesus and our immortal glorification.
