Within a dream of the night ...Behold I found myself standing as it were on the side walk in front of what appeared to be a church...and as I turned to look upon the place I saw ...manicured grass even every blade ...a lawn that stretched some distance to the building ...now there was a perfect sidewalk leading to the building ...straight and perfect in all appearance ...Behold there arose a building of pure white stone all cut exactly and to the finest fitting one stone unto another and such was the building that all who looked upon it would stand in awe of it for the craftsmanship of it and all the grounds round about was perfect to the eye ...and Behold there were folks there ... all were dressed in perfect white gowns and their manner was as to be in perfect relationship one unto another ...that is to say none had so much as the smallest dispute between them for they were learned of relationships and how people were to be one unto another.
Then behold the leaders of this gathering came out and invited me to join them ...and it this I was reluctant for fear of offending God ...yet these said oh we know of these things and if it be comfortable to you ...please come see for we are perfect in all things according to matters of God ...come then let us show you around and you will see how all things are right here ... even when you see ...we would very much like you to join us.
Now as it was I looked upon the people and their manner ...and I did not see one greivable thing that they did, spoke, or acted in ...and so I wondered before God what was He trying to show me? ...now even was I invited graciously into the building to ...as it were find anything grievable ...and it came to pass as I went through all the building ...nothing did I find that was forbidden of God ... for all seemed in perfect order ...even did they explain in much detail how that they had studied much as to the discipline of themselves coming together ...and yea they were all in harmony one with each other.
Now it came to pass that as I walked with these leaders of this church that they encouraged me many times to join them ...and as now we were walking at the side of the building ...as if I was now going to leave did they ask me to pause for a moment to decide wither or not I would join them ...and they asked behold did you find any ...even the smallest thing that might be grievable to God or that offended you? ...and to this I said "no for all things seemed right among you and of your building." ...and I trembled before the Lord and prayed within myself asking what is this Lord? Now did they still courteously entreat me to Join them ...and I said unto them that I did not know if I would for I would have to pray about it, (they were unawares that I had already ...within myself beseeched the Lord as to these matters ...yet He had not opened anything to me yet).
Now as we walked at the side of the building approaching the front from where I came ...they did ask me again to consider joining them ...and I said unto them for it is in the Lords hand s to show me all things ...and for now I cannot say ...yet I wait upon the Lord.
Now Behold as we turned the corner of the building and the very face of it came into my seeing ...Behold a funeral procession was going round to the back of the church ...and I was stunned for the Lord turned me to look upon these leaders saying ...for this I will not join you ...yet they understood not ...and seemed not to care as to the discernment of the matter ...for they went about ...that all gathered up for their funeral.
And I as it was walked away ...thanking the Lord for the truth of the matter, the peace of his freedom and the quietness of my walk with him ...that in him is no death ...that as it is written; let the dead bury the dead...
