Dream: The Stock Market Declining – Nicole Moore

On Saturday 18th August after praying and going back to sleep I received a dream. In this dream I was shown a picture of the stock market. It looked like the picture
The week before this dream, I had another dream. There was two specific people in this dream who were called to help others. The Lord was supernaturally supplying the needs of his people and THOSE WHO NEEDED HELP.
In the dream last night the picture was of the stock market declining. It was very high almost at the top of the side bar. I do not know what the top dollar amount was. The base line went in month order. The start of the base line was September. From then on it just went down. It would go up a little but not enough to cover the decrease. Then month by month it just went down again, going up a little but still not enough to cover the loss. As each month went by it declined and declined until it hit the bottom base line.
This whole process from September was not years till it hit bottom but months. I do not know what year this was or what caused the sudden decline. I believe it to be this September, I may be wrong with the year but the month I was shown it started was September .
Isaiah 55:6-7 
Seek ye the Lord while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near:
Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the Lord, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.

HOW CAN I BELIEVE IN THE GOODNESS OF GOD WHEN THERE IS SO MUCH EVIL IN THE WORLD?

The evil in the world did not come from God. If Adam and Eve had only obeyed God, then they may have lived on earth forever, walking with God, tending the garden and working together. After they sinned, they were just not on the same page with God anymore.

God cannot tolerate sin and has no sin within Himself, so Adam and Eve hid from God in guilt and fear. You perhaps could blame Adam and Eve for the evil in the world just as they blamed each other and the serpent.

However, “all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23).

So it is safe to say that, had we been in the garden instead of Adam and Eve, we would have sinned in the same way. But, God is good in that He has a plan to redeem sinful humans.

The salvation Jesus provides shows to His goodness and love (Romans 5:8). The effect of the Fall is upon all of us, but so also is the offer of His divine grace (John 3:16).

The Bible clearly shows the devastating effects of sin upon us and the hopelessness of us in solving his our sin problem. 

God is good in that He has sent His Son “to destroy the works of the devil” (1 John 3:8). The blame for the evil in this world should be placed squarely upon Satan.

Much is written about the devil—he comes only to kill, steal, and destroy (John 10:10). He is a fierce enemy (1 Peter 5:8). He is a liar and a murderer (John 8:44).

God is good in that He is implementing a plan to rid the universe of evil once and for all. He is the God of justice, and He will one day make all things right (Psalm 89:14; Revelation 21:5). Sin and evil will be dealt with in perfect judgment (Revelation 20:13).

Because of Christ, we have the promise of Romans 16:20, “The God of peace will soon crush Satan under your feet.”

God is good in that He provides for His children (Matthew 6:33). He gives life to all and upholds all things by His wisdom and power (Hebrews 1:3). He is patient with sinners, desiring them to come to repentance and find eternal life (2 Peter 3:9).

God gives us eternal life and abundant life now, free from the death penalty of sin (Romans 6:23). He is “rich in mercy” because of “His great love for us” (Ephesians 2:4).

Just picture the Sinless One who created everything, willfully hanging on a cross and spilling His blood for the sin of those who put their faith in Him.

How can you possibly charge Him with injustice? (Romans 9:14)

Jesus proves God’s love. “Love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love” (1 John 4:7-8)

WHAT DOES IT MEAN THAT THE BODY IS THE TEMPLE OF THE HOLY SPIRIT?

Instructing the Christians in Corinth to flee from sexual immorality, the apostle Paul exhorted, “Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your body” (1 Corinthians 6:19-20).

Indeed, God the Father created our bodies, God the Son redeemed them, and God the Holy Spirit indwells them. This makes our body the very temple of the Holy Spirit of God.

Those who do not belong to Christ do not have the Spirit of Christ residing in them (Romans 8:9). Thus, their bodies are not a temple of the Holy Spirit. Clearly, then, the greatest thing we can do for our bodies is to make them into a temple for God’s Spirit. And we do this by placing our trust and faith in Jesus Christ as our Savior.

The moment we do this, the indwelling of God’s Spirit takes place (1 Corinthians 12:13). Our salvation is then sealed and guaranteed (Ephesians 1:13-14). The Holy Spirit will then be with us forever (John 14:16), given by God as His pledge of the believer’s future inheritance in glory (2 Corinthians 1:21-22).

As the Holy Spirit resides in us, therefore, we are to honor God with our bodies as they “are not our own,” as Paul said. We have indeed been bought with a price. And it was not gold or silver or other perishable things by which we were redeemed; it was with the unblemished blood of Jesus Christ (1 Peter 1:18-19).

Ordained by God before the foundation of the world (Acts 2:23), Christ’s blood purchased us out of the slavery of sin and set us free forever. And as Christian’s bodies are God’s temple, we are to use them to glorify God.

If God meant to convey the idea that the Spirit lives within the believer,

He could well have used words such as “home,” “house,” or “residence.” But by choosing the word “temple” to describe the Spirit’s dwelling, He conveys the idea that our bodies are the shrine, or the sacred place, in which the Spirit not only lives, but is worshiped and honored.

Therefore, how we behave, think and speak, and what we let into the temple through our eyes and ears becomes critically important as well, for every thought, word and deed is in His view.

Even though God will never leave us, it is possible to grieve the Holy Spirit (Ephesians 4: 30). Paul told the Ephesians  to “get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice.

Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you” (Ephesians 4:31-32).

When we live by the Spirit, we will no longer gratify the desires of the sinful nature (Galatians 5:16).
