Dreamed with Leviticus 5:1


witness

On the dream we were in some kind of camp, retreat or something. I got out of bed and this white American preacher, who seemed to be accompanied by his wife, starts a full-blown Bible Study. We gathered around some round chairs, similar to bar chairs. He immediately and, very enthusiastically, asked for us to open our Bibles in Leviticus 5:1. It was like this man could not wait for me to get out of bed to start ministering. I made the comment to this preacher that I just woke up 3 minutes ago as he seemed to be in a hurry.  In this dream, I am the first to get to Leviticus 5:1; but I had problems reading it; it was fuzzy. The preacher, his wife and the small group composed of my wife, some of my children and my brother Carlos also laughed about the fact that I could not see. I laughed also and said, “I better read this thing with my cell phone so I can see.

As we all laughed the preacher walked us outside. It looked like a camping area or retreat area. The weather was nice, and it was sunny. I was getting ready to read Leviticus 5:1 out of my phone when I woke up. I immediately grabbed my phone with great expectation to read Leviticus 5:1,

“Now if a person sins after he hears a public adjuration to testify when he is a witness, whether he has seen or otherwise known, if he does not tell it, then he will bear his guilt.” (NASB)

So, essentially, if you are an eye witness or you know of a crime, sin, violation of any law, etc. and you decide not to testify of that sin, violation of any law, etc. that you know about, that you know is wrong… then you become guilty of what you are trying to cover up. When we look at the apostles, they were constantly dealing with confronting sin and false doctrines. I am sure they have many people accusing the apostles of judging and thinking they were holier than anybody, but that did not stop them from continuing to address sin, preach the gospel, teach sound doctrine and confront false doctrine. At the end it cost them their lives. There is indeed a price to pay when we speak God’s truth. I wonder what my price would be.

It is so easy to keep our mouth close, to stop preaching and teaching, to turn our heads and go on by our business. However, we as Christians are called to be witnesses. Acts 22:15 tells us, “For you will be a witness for Him to all men of what you have seen and heard.” (NASB) As witnesses, we have an obligation to testify of what we see according to Leviticus 5:1. When we don’t, we become accomplice.
