Not by might or by power — Marian Fitzgibbon

“…Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit, says the LORD of hosts.” — Zechariah 4:6 ESV)

I woke at 4 am to capture the following dream:  I was on an extremely fast-moving train. It was like one of those supersonic types of trains, yet I had not yet been on one like this.  Everyone was dressed in white; the train was pretty full, yet none of us were concerned with space issues.  We were all chatting and happy and whole.  Suddenly the train came to a halt and the doors flung open.  I knew I was to get out.  The strange thing was I found myself down on my knees rather than standing.  I looked back at the train — the doors remained open and the people were still happily chatting.  As I glanced down at the floor, I was keenly aware that it was made of white marble.  The entire floor area was cool and clean, which is most unusual for a train station.  I moved along toward the big double doors but before I got there, I had a keen sense I should make contact with the train driver. I didn’t want to be left behind. As I approached the cab with the train driver, I sensed he had more power than just an ordinary train driver.  He smiled at me and beckoned me to go quickly and bring the people.

 The big doors opened to a large concourse and there in front of me was a large thronging crowd. Some people wore white clothes, some dirty stained clothes. I recognised some, some were on stretchers, they were anxious, young and old. A deep desperation to get them all onto the train gripped my heart. I glanced back at the driver and he smiled raised his eyes to the large clock in the concourse. The clock was close to midnight.

When I took this to the Lord for greater understanding it came to me that a train with a very powerful engine can be the church operating in the power of the Holy Spirit and not of man (Heb 2.4). The train was a large, highspeed, out-of-this-world type of train. For us, as the body of Christ, if we will allow the Holy Spirit to be the driver, it will be a seamless drive carrying a large burden.

Right now if one looks at the world, at every turn the fields are white unto harvest and the workers are few and we should ask the Lord of the harvest to send out workers into His harvest as the time is drawing to a close (Mathew 9.37 & Matthew 9.38).

If we lean into the Holy Spirit, He will turn the fields that are white unto harvest into the most glorious harvest we could ever hope for. The burden will be easy because it’s His plan to unfold and the power and the glory go to Him. This is the revival and reformation we have all been praying for.

    A powerful dream and interpretation…. Jesus bringing the certainty of His Presence and Holy Spirit willing to move as we allow….

  2. Amen. Thank you Marian. Yes! May we yield to Him and allow the Holy Spirit to work in and through each one of us. People are searching for truth and hungry for that peace and security that only Jesus Christ can bring.
