Prophetic Dream: The Power That Opens to You a Heavenly Portal of Peace and Prosperity

I dreamed I was in the section of the zoo that houses all the snakes and scorpions. It was a zoo where you could get into the pen with the animals, and I stepped into a pen designed to look like the jungle.

I sensed that I wanted to test the truths that God had been giving me about His eternal power and dominion on earth. I began to roll around on the sandy ground, and I could not see any of the snakes and serpents, yet suddenly, different kinds began to pop out one by one. I would wrestle one and think, “Whew, I am so glad I defeated that.” Then I would roll over like I was waiting for another one, first under some trees and then on some grass.

One by one, they would show up and hiss at me, but none of them bit me.

I would grab them off my back and throw them. As I did this, the snakes would look me in the eye. I knew I was supposed to fear them, but I viewed them as a nuisance. I kept throwing them and going back in for more of the same. I would think of my prosperous soul and how they could not get access to the soul that was full of life and believed in the fullness of the resurrection and ascension of Christ. I felt whole and complete in the power of dunamis, the miracle-working power of Jesus Christ, inside me. I was only in the pen with them because I was training my mind and body to handle their attacks when they came. I kept seeing them as having no real power, just an ugly appearance and a hiss that was supposed to scare someone afraid of death. Yet not one of them bit me.

I woke up thinking, “Wow, what a gruesome time with those snakes. But why was I the one constantly going back for more with them? Why was I going back in the pen of my free will?”

Then the Holy Spirit spoke to me and said, “You were training your mind with the new truths I have shared with you about the eternal realm of prosperity of soul and walking in the ascension life. You had stepped through a heavenly portal into an eternal realm of prosperity.”

I knew at that moment that was exactly what I was doing, and I believe the Lord wants you to accomplish the same thing. Heavenly portals are gateways or doorways that enable heaven to come to earth and reveal itself. I pray that you will learn to live in the prosperity realm of soul so much that who you are in your soul—your mind, will, and emotions—has expanded beyond measure in the eternal reality of life everlasting. When this happens, you magnify the Lord daily with what He has already done for you, and you live life to the fullest as though all things are eternally complete from past, present, and future because of what Jesus already accomplished for us all. When you experience prosperity of the soul, you begin to live back in the Garden of Eden, where Adam and Eve were in their state of bliss with the Father.

You have been equipped through His death, burial, and resurrection. Now learn what comes after the resurrection: the power of ascension. This power opens a heavenly portal of an eternal realm of prosperity and a release of the glory of the Lord that will bring the joy, peace, and rest you have desired. {eoa}
