Wow! It has been a whirlwind of a couple of months for us here at Dreams. But we absolutely love all the opportunities we get to simply love others without any agenda. You may notice a four letter word cropping up again and again – L.O.V.E. This is the incredible journey that God has had us on for the last few years via either that still small voice, many, many dreams, visions and pretty much every where we turn we can’t get away from LOVE and we truly don’t ever want to…….everything else passes but LOVE remains constant.
March 5th 2013 Andrew & Erin's Wedding Anniversary
Talking about love – we got to celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary and we gotta say – it just keeps getting better! Loving each other and loving others together that calls for a Yay God!
March 9th 2013 Auckland Night Markets Pakuranga
Loving people is what God does best and He loves to do that through us, so with around 30 people through the stall last night we saw Him pour out His love, comfort, peace and healing power. The challenges some people are facing can seem so overwhelming and we are thankful for this incredible opportunity to encourage and bring Gods presence into their situations. We saw people stunned as specific details were revealed at just how much He truly does care for every single aspect of their lives. From young teenagers to mature adults and again every nationality that you can think of – they are ALL his sons and daughters with whom He longs to have close relationship and see released into the fullness of their destiny and it was wonderful that many got to see Him truly as a loving Father for the first time last night. Much of what they tell us is so very personal and often quite traumatic so can’t always be publically shared. The hunger to experience God and to truly know Him and not just about Him is increasing and there seems to be a huge spiritual awakening happening in our little corner of the marketplace.
March 23rd 2013 Outside the Walls Training
We love seeing others really get that it is all about simply loving others in their sphere of influence – there is no pressure, no programmes, not a formula in sight which takes a load of pressure of those that are looking to see people touched, transformed and released into their destinies, whether it is by healing, spiritual insights, spiritual encounters, spiritual cleansing, dream interpretation or a smile, a hug a word of encouragement – it doesn’t matter just as long as they are releasing the incredible love that was freely given to them to others everywhere. Comments from a couple who attended both the training and the Auckland Night Markets where they got to put everything into practice -
“Incredibly impacted to be involved with the team from XP Erin-Andrew Bradley, releasing Papa's Love to a hurting and broken generation. It was absolutely priceless seeing people’s faces change as revelation broke into their hearts. It's the aaaaaaah moments of God that leaves you speechless and incredibly humbled that in the big scheme of things God chose us Les n I to be alive for a time such as this. We spoke with a lot of Maori people tonight, Our PEOPLE, HIS PEOPLE!!!!”
Please don’t read that it is all about “us” (Andrew, Erin, Denise, Mark etc) it soooooo isn’t but we just can’t and won’t keep this great love to ourselves – that would be incredibly selfish – how can we not want to share this with those who are broken, hurting emotionally, physically and spiritually and help them to find their identity as incredibly loved sons and daughters of the Creator of the Universe? It was so wonderful to see around 20 people really excited about getting “Outside the Walls” and some of them learning to become love for those that they spent time with in the stall.
If you, your friends, your whanau, your social group, church group, whatever group are keen to learn how to love others and find out how easy and how much fun it really is to re-present Jesus outside of the walls – feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org – no group is too big or small!
March 23rd 2013 Auckland Night Markets Pakuranga
Religion sucks – it never brings life and freedom and lots of people got to understand the difference between religion and having a true relationship with God with so many getting to experience Jesus in an authentic way. Physical healings are a regular occurrence in the Market and on Saturday we saw improvements with smashed ankles and hamstrings. Every week we have people come in desperate for hope in their current circumstances and they not only find this, but discover that they also have an incredible destiny ahead of them via Dream Interpretation, Name Readings, Spiritual Encounters and Spiritual Insights. God loves all His kids and many have walked away, not so much because of Him, but because they have been deeply wounded by others and what an incredible privilege it is to see them come into a place of emotional and spiritual freedom! Seeing restoration on so many levels is just amazing!
What does it look like when we become love to the world around us? What happens when His kids go out to love people without any other agendas? What happens when you put the Dreams team together with the Bethel Supernatural School of Ministry Team Whangarei and International team……….. A Love Revolution! Love doesn’t just make people feel better it transforms and we saw that in action at the Auckland Night Markets in Pakuranga where so many lives were touched, transformed and people were physically and emotionally healed by the love and power of Jesus. Jesus IS Love and we were created to be just like Him and express that wherever we go, and we sure had fun doing that on Saturday night. So many people
just don’t know who they are yet and when they get to meet with His kids that do know, it is inevitable that they will get to experience incredible goodness and supernatural love. One young Mum came in for spiritual insights and also received a small measure of freedom from pain of endometriosis – she came back an hour later, all the pain had completely vanished and she was thrilled to bits at being free for the first time in so long from pain! Loads of knees healed, arch healed, heel healed (lol), several ex drug addicts given encouragement by dream interpretations, spiritual insights etc. So many people experiencing the tangible presence of God in joy peace and of course LOVE – around 50 through the stall and countless around and outside the stall all getting to taste the extreme love of God in some form or another. Thanks so much BSSM team – we loved loving others with you!
April 13th 2013 Auckland Night Markets Pakuranga & Jacqui & George and Papatoetoe Night Market Team (to be)
It is always a heap of fun for the Dreams Team at the Auckland Night Markets in Pakuranga, but even more fun when we have others that are learning about becoming love with us! It never ceases to amaze us how accurate words of knowledge break down barriers and we saw this many times on Saturday night. In particular with three individual young Maori women who God was encouraging in their vocations as well as bringing restoration so they could move forward from broken promises into a future that held hope and trust. Sometimes it is more fun watching the friend sitting next to them whose mouths seem to hit the floor as they also get to experience the incredible love of God as He very clearly reveals how much He loves them. A spiritualist had significant decrease of pain in her joints from head to toe and increased movement as tested on the stairs outside the stall. Many dream Interpretations again revealed giftings and amazing opportunities ahead for both young and old alike. One young Muslim girl received an instant decrease from pain in her knee from a 6/10 to a 1/10 while her Dad and sister were hugely encouraged by the Destiny Word Cards as they waited and lastly near midnight a man we spoke to the week before hobbled in (because he needed a hip replacement) to discover more about Jesus and danced out free from pain and looking forward to his future! Each week it is so different as each person that comes into the stall has different needs, but everyone that comes in always leaves being touched by God’s love and goodness in some way or another – all with a fresh and new perspective of who He really is!
April 19th 2013 Wise Cicada
Thought that today I may only see one person as the first lady was with me the whole time I am usually there, which is fine by me as I always believe that every person I get to speak with is a divine set up by God. Then I got to encourage another with a dream interpretation followed by a lady who came in initially with a fairly downcast demeanor. It felt a little like she was saying “Well what have you got for me!” By the end of her time with me, she was smiling and had hope for her future that God would deal to the liver disease that she had been battling. By the end of that session it was well into the afternoon and I had packed up most of the gear when two very young teenage girls came in and the Father’s heart was poured out yet again as I spoke healing over them for eating disorders and encouraged them with words of destiny for their future. Honestly, nothing compares to seeing His love speak life into those that need a miracle.
April 22nd 2013 Chateau de Peninsula
Erin-Andrew Bradley came and shared their outreach ministry with us last night at Chateau de Peninsula - 17 in person and 2 on Skype turned up. Fantastic learning opportunity for everyone present. Andrew & Erin have developed a very mature, relevant and effective method of evangelising and speaking light & life into the world via the night market scene. Wonderfully wise, humble and talented couple. Contact them if you desire to step out & walk alongside others already making a difference in your world.
Another opportunity to equip and release others to “Just Do It” outside the walls and a great evening of fun and food – thanks Paul and Simon!
April 27th 2013 Auckland Night Markets Pakuranga
“Coincidence or Divine Appointments” – We will leave you to decide, but whatever you think we found that the Auckland Night Markets in Pakuranga started humming really early last night, with a huge influx of people very early on, so it was wonderful having George, Jacqui and Kathryn with us to help out. We saw over 30 people – each person hoping for something special for either their current set of circumstances or for their future. One lady who came in with only partial hearing and walked out being able to hear clearly was so excited that she now had the ability to be able to hear her phone ring for the first time ever that she brought her son and husband in to receive from God too! “Coincidence” No: 1 – A young woman came into the stall not realising that we were the same people that she had been sending in dreams to for around a year now through the "Dreams" website www.dreams.org.nz (She is just beginning to search for her spiritual identity) and it was so incredibly touching to see God speak to both her and her friend and remove obstacles that had been preventing them from moving forward into their destinies – we ran out of tissues. “Coincidence” No: 2 A young girl and her cousin enormously encouraged on their spiritual journey discovered that her Mother went to school with one of the team (in a different part of New Zealand many moons ago) – small world! There are so many lonely people out there just needing to know that they are loved and in fact not alone and that God really is good and He loves them so very much, He will never leave them, never abuse them physically or emotionally and never let them down. For some we get the awesome opportunity to help them discover their created value and to speak life into them so that they can be completely released with confidence into their true identity. God knows just what is needed for each and every individual that comes through the stall and He loves to pour out His goodness and love above and beyond what we even expect…..we are so blessed and immensely thankful to have this amazing opportunity – thank you God!
Dream Interpretation – You may be patiently waiting for your dream to be interpreted from the www.dreams.org.nz site. As you can see from above we have been a tad busy ( not to mention selling our house and packing to move to a rental popped into the equation too!) so please bear with us as we do get many dreams coming in from all over the world and this is not our day job lol – in fact it is all FREE!! For those of you that understand the Ancient Hebraic texts – a Revelations Dream School is a wonderful way of learning how to interpret your own dreams so if you or your friends etc are keen on that just drop us a line at email@example.com and we can look at coming to do something in your neck of the woods.
A long post this time – hope you enjoyed it and we hope that all your Dreams are sweet!
