About a month ago I was given a dream. I felt surely this dream was given to me by the Lord. I saw 3 rats appear. I saw one of the rats try to devour my home but when it started to eat at the insulation (a symbol of protection) the small amount of insulation that it had eaten began to gum up within the mouth of that rat and the rat’s lips were sealed as it died. I wondered what happened to the other two rats. I had a knowledge that the other two rats had died in the same way.
This dream was brought to my attention once again during the past few days when I found out that a person we know of who was a dastardly person had died. There are a different set of emotions that come forth when someone who had done evil things dies compared to the emotions you feel when someone who had done good things dies.
Here are notes [these notes have been revised a bit] I sent to a couple of people concerning the dream I had over a month ago:
—– Original Message —–Aw rats also could be a symbol for people who betray you – AW….. three people having their mouths shut because they were betraying someone who was loyal to them – they are rats, too –I saw a dream yesterday – it ended with rats/large mice (three of them) showing up in a dark corner of a home – I saw them and I think I was telling a family member the rats were getting into something rather than being contained. I guess it was a good dream since I saw one rat take a bite of insulation (the yellow colored spray foam kind of insulation) and the insulation sealed the mouth of the rat and it apparently died. It was as though I had the knowledge that the other two rats were going to do the same thing.In the natural I do not mind knowing rats will be killed. I remember the insulation looked like it gummed up in the mouth of the rat and gagged it and sealed it’s mouth.Ha! I like the idea of a rat having it’s mouth sealed shut. When people are called rats it is usually because they tell on other rats for their own personal gain. “You dirty rat”I have read that some animals can be symbols of demons. I don’t mind it if the demons get their mouths shut and they are destroyed.God is greater than the power of the enemy. I will keep trusting in God. May the Lord show me how this dream pertains to my life. I feel as though there must be a reason I was shown this positive thing of having rats destroyed.///////// I saw the word “jerk” when I looked for definitions that help describe rat. I suppose that is another reason why I thought of the dastardly people I’ve met that I have called a jerk. There may be times when I mildly call someone a jerk and I do not mean anything serious against them when I say it but there is at least one person I have called a jerk for years and that person was one that I felt acted as though he was demonic. He told me that he believed he had demons.++++++++++++++++++
I will share another thing to recall when praying about interpretations of dreams. In the book of Genesis a dream was given in two forms. Joseph said the dream was given in two forms to denote the fact that the dream would come true. It is possible the dream I was given had three rats die to confirm that it would come to pass. If that is the case then this dream was prophetic and it has come to pass. If there are still two more evil people I know of who are to meet God during a time of judgment causing us to know that the Lord prohibited them from threatening and lying to people any longer then I feel sure this dream will come to mind again.
I believe God speaks through dreams because He said he would pour out His Holy Spirit on people then dreams and visions from Him shall come forth.
Proverbs 12:19 (KJV), “The lip of truth shall be established for ever: but a lying tongue is but for a moment.”
Revelation 20:1-3 (KJV), And I saw an angel come donwn from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. And he laid hold of the dragon, that old serpent, which is the devil, and satan, and bound him a thousand years, and casthim into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season.”
