Brown Eggs and No Ham - A Dream Interpreted

Mark Virkler's picture

Esther recently attended our dream interpretation training, and as a result is now receiving guidance through her dreams. Here is one of them!

“Indeed God speaks once, or twice, yet no one notices it. In a dream, a vision of the night, When sound sleep falls on men, While they slumber in their beds, Then He opens the ears of men, And seals their instruction, that He may turn man aside from his conduct, And keep man from pride; He keeps back his soul from the pit, . . . Job 33:14-18

As I climbed into bed, I was excited about the new ideas I’d heard in the last two days. Like Mary, I wanted to ponder them in my heart before sleep set in.

I reflected on the ideas one by one.

  • The first one was that dreams contain a valid message. They are not the pizza I ate before going to bed.
  • The second one was that God wants to guide and counsel me through my dreams on a regular basis.
  • And third, I could let God know that I was open and ready to hear from Him through dreams by asking Him to speak to me in my dreams right before falling asleep. I could also put a journal and pen by my bed to record the dreams.

It seemed too good to be true, but I was all over it. What did I have to lose?

As a recovering workaholic, someone was talking my love language. The possibility of getting something done while I was sleeping was too good an offer to turn down.

My pondering was done. I was ready to try it.

My eyes closed and I drifted into much needed sleep. The next thing I remember is hearing God say to me, “What happens when you leave eggs on too long? What an odd question, I thought. But it’s God, so I’ll go with it.”

Immediately, I saw a picture of a pan full of eggs someone had whisked, poured into the pan, and walked away to focus on something else. The eggs had been neglected. God took a spatula and lifted the eggs slightly and I could see that they were beginning to turn brown. My first thought was that there are not many things I dislike more than overcooked eggs. I’d rather have no eggs for breakfast than overcooked eggs and I love eggs.

I refocused and went back to the question, “What happens when you leave eggs on too long?“

I answered, “They become tough. They’re not tender.”

The Lord spoke, “When you’re on duty too long, your heart gets tough. You’re working too much, and it’s not who you want to be.”

The guidance and counsel from Heaven had arrived. I now believe God does guide and counsel us in our dreams. It is much needed, and beautiful!

Health Mastery Through MRT

Wouldn't it be great if there were a way for my body to tell me exactly what it needs and desires, without having to take expensive or invasive tests? Wouldn't it be amazing if I could perform these tests as often as I wanted, right in my own home (or anywhere I wanted), with no costly instruments necessary?

Hearing God Through Biblical Meditation

by Mark and Patti Virkler | 179 Pages | $15.99 retail list price

For many years I studied the Bible incorrectly, and it produced death rather than life. Even though I had a knowledge of the Scriptures, I did not personally experience the life and the realities they revealed. The Bible calls this the ministry of death, rather than the ministry of righteousness (2 Cor. 3:6–9). Upon coming out of Bible college, I found myself just like the apostle Paul, attacking those who disagreed with my theology.

How Do You Know?

How Do You Know?

by Mark and Patti Virkler | 180 Pages

How do you know? What is the process you use to discover truth? I did not ask that question during the first 25 years of my life. I used various methods for discovering truth such as: if my parents said so, then it was so. If my teacher said it was so, then it was so. If my pastor said it was so, then it was so. If my theology said it was so, then it was so.

How to Walk by the Spirit

How to Walk by the Spirit

by Mark and Patti Virkler | 136 Pages

Are you like many western Christians who have been taught little about how to sense their spirits? Do you have trouble even defining what spirit sensations feel like within you, much less recognizing them? This training was birthed from Mark’s passion to live out of his spirit, and thus release the anointing of God. The problem he faced was lack of clear biblical definition as to what his spirit felt like. So Mark looked up every verse in the Bible on heart and spirit.

FINALLY - A Spirit-Anointed Epistemology! A system of knowing for the Spirit-filled believer. A fresh moving of the Holy Spirit has been upon the Church of Jesus Christ for the last 100 years, since the Asuza Street Revival in 1902. In all that time the Spirit-filled community of believers (now numbering 27% of all Christendom), had yet to delineate an approach to learning which restored the Holy Spirit to His rightful place as the primary Teacher in our midst.
