Dreamed With Leviticus 5:1

My ministry

I had this dream a few weeks ago. 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 the bar chairs. He immediately and very enthusiastically asked for us to open our Bibles in Leviticus 5:1. I made the comment that I just woke up 3 minutes ago.
I am the first to get to Leviticus 5:1; but I had problems reading it. The preacher, his wife and the small group that also included my wife, some of my children and my brother Carlos, laughed about me having problems reading. 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 look like a camping area or retreat area. The weather was nice and it was sunny. I am getting ready to read Leviticus 5:1 and I woke up.
When I woke up I immediately grab my phone to read Leviticus 5:1 with great anticipation:
“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 dealt a great deal with sin. 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 would be the price I have to pay.
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 and as witnesses we have an obligation to testify of what we see according to Leviticus 5:1. When we don’t we become accomplice.
