Dream – Books before 1452 and True Theology of God

The Lord once showed me in a long dream that the all knowledge of Him that is written down would be second-hand, especially after 1452. He told me that people were trying to climb up Christ’s cross like a ladder to reach the oldest books on top of the library, but that this was trampling on the Son of God. The true theology of God was found at the foot of the cross and angels descended on it and then ascended – just as with Jacob’s Ladder.
It was an amazing, all-night, God-dream in which the Lord put me in a huge library with books that went up and up to a very high ceiling. He told me to only read books before 1452, but all I knew is that such old books must be very close to the ceiling. He told me that “I only want you to read true knowledge of Me.” I had no idea how I would get to those books so high up, but suddenly an “Old Rugged Cross” appeared before me. I pondered how I would use it as a ladder to reach the high books. The cross-beam was too high to even reach to pull up myself. If I turned it upside down, I could use the cross-beam as a step, but then there wasn’t more of them to continue climbing. As I pondered how to do this, I saw angels descending from heaven on the cross and then ascending back up and I immediately remembered the story in Genesis 28:10-12 where Jacob spent the night in the desert, and “as he dreamed, he beheld a ladder set up on the earth, and the top of it reached to heaven. And he beheld the angels of God ascending and descending on it!” Then I remembered when Jesus called Nathanael to follow Him in John 1:48-51, He said to Nathaniel: “You believe in Me because I saw you under the fig tree while you were praying earlier (but Jesus was nowhere in the vicinity)? Truly, truly, I say to you, you will see heaven opened, and the angels of God ascending and descending on the Son of Man.” Then God said that I misunderstood the purpose of the cross. It was actually a ladder, but not for me to take even one step up on! Instead I was to patiently wait at the bottom of it, like Jacob did, like Nathaniel would have to, in order to see the messengers of God minister to me through Christ. If I listened and watched, the genuine, experiential, relational epignosis knowledge of God would be delivered to me through Christ.” See also the Knowledge page.
When I awoke, I was shocked to discover that 1452 was when the first book was published on a metal-type printing press, and it was 180 copies of the Gutenberg Bible! It was also the year Leonardo da Vinci, the “Man of the Renaissance” was born. This period was also known as the “Era of Humanism” when man decided to be “the measure of all things, the center of the universe.” This led further to “The Age of Reason” when Aristotle’s Greek philosophy of “realism” over Plato’s “idealism,” science, and individualism replaced the family and the Church as the path to “the truth.” It wasn’t just the rapid spread of the bible that the 1452 printing press invention helped propagate but the world’s humanist propaganda!
When I found this out, I clearly understood that God didn’t want me to look for “true theology of God” in any books at all, because until 1452, everything was written on stone or scrolls! And it wouldn’t even come from these old scrolls of the bible and early Church records, but at the foot of the cross! I wouldn’t find the “genuine knowledge of God” or “theology” through even the first-hand accounts of people who heard directly-spoken prophetic rhema words from God or received revelation through visions and dreams that Acts 2:16-18 says is now the pattern for “the last days” or Church age, and certainly not from second-hand accounts – people quoting people, so common in religion! It would no longer be the “way” 5 bible colleges had taught me, which hundreds of books and websites had reinforced over years of writing hundreds of detailed papers. It would no longer be through “study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing (handling, teaching straight) the logos gospel message of [singular] Truth” (2 Timothy 2:15), which turns out to be a very misleading translation by the King James Version and 9 other bibles that spun off from it (see the bottom of the Conversational-Prayer page). God wanted me to sit patiently at the bottom of the cross until He taught me directly, just as Jeremiah 31:31-34; Hebrews 8:10, 10:16; Ezekiel 36:25-27; Isaiah 54:13, 59:21; John 6:45, 14:26; presently/ongoingly: 1 Thessalonians 4:9; 1 Corinthians 2:13; 2 Corinthians 3:3 – see Logos Word of God – BT20; 1 John 2:27, and many other verses declare.
I say “God didn’t want me to look” because in my dream God also told me that the lady who officiated my wedding, a gifted counselor who already hears from the Holy Spirit and operates in the grace-gifts of the Holy Spirit, was to read books “after 1452,” though I never got the reason why. After telling her the dream, she surprisingly remarked that she had been reading other Christian “mystics” who heard directly from God, and found this encouraging to her. Very possibly, God was trying to reinforce her own hearing ability and trying to get me away from my addiction to books and study so that I would hear more directly from God! That’s the way it is with direct communication from God – it’s very custom-fitted and tailored to your own needs, so you can’t universally apply what you are hearing for yourself. I’ve had many other dreams and visions to reinforce the tons of bible study I’ve done over the years, so I’m confident in the path that I am to take.
