I had a dream one time where the setting was at a regular church service that seemed typical of a Sunday morning. What I am about to share with you seemed to happen in less than a minute. The first thing that took place was that certain Christians across the sanctuary in the pew area all of a sudden started to grow physically. It looked like they were experiencing a type of growing pain and even confusion because of what was happening to them. Then all of a sudden they had stopped growing at what I would estimate to be somewhere around 8 feet tall. I do not know the exact height but it was apparent they were towering over everyone who did not grow.
The thing that made this so dynamic was that when they had finished growing they immediately could see above the rest and something immediately changed in them. The change was not only physical. They were also able to `immediately recognize their other brothers and sisters in the Body of Christ who had likewise grown. They were all filled with a powerful love for the other Christians. The best way to describe this love is that all the petty differences and doctrinal matters that keep so many Christians divided all of a sudden did not matter because this Love overrode ALL these things. These Christians could see through all those things now and the Love superseded it all. It was apparent that all these differences were derived from the traditions and teachings of men.
The last part of the dream was apparent even while these members were growing. Some of the members in the proximity of these growing believers were very uncomfortable with what was happening. They were filled with a type of fear when they saw it and even more so when it was complete. They could not relate to it, they did not get to experience what the others did. Then I woke up and I knew the dream had been from God. Immediately without thinking too much I asked God for the interpretation. The following words came to me, “Stature of the fullness of Christ” Ephesians 4:13
