Using the principles taught in this lesson, interpret the following dream:
Dream: Naked on Television
"I was a part of a live audience on a national television show. My mother, who in reality, I have a positive and solid relationship with, was on stage and taking off all her clothes.
First her blouse came off, and then she started to take her skirt off too. I stood back in embarrassment and wanted her to stop. I wanted to grab her off stage and make her stop. I said to myself, 'She will never recover from this! She is in front of the whole world.'
Next to her, was standing a guy that I know in real life. In reality he is a guy that is on active duty in the military. He stood next to my mother, timid and shy. Then I woke up."
*Note: Dream interpretations may vary slightly. You may see something else that another person did not see and vice versa. However, everyone should arrive at a similar main message.
"This is an external dream. My mother represents the church. The Lord was calling me to intercede and letting me know what the Church looks like to the world and to Him, right now. She is showing her 'nakedness,' which in scripture often refers to shame.
She is giving a bad 'face' to the world. It reminds me of the story of Hosea, whose wife was very unfaithful, yet he loved her and went after her. In the same way, the Lord wants to cover the Church, His bride. Her behavior is even mild, next to the military guy (sitting next to her).
In reality, at the time of the dream, their was news that a certain church was protesting against homosexuals, right outside the funeral of homosexuals that were recently gunned down. It was recorded in front of national television. However, that was only one of few incidences where the Church made the news... in a negative way. This dream was a call to intercede and to bring order and conviction to the Universal Church."
