The imagination is capable of writing a whole book. Look at the likes of Star wars, Star Trek and Harry Potter for example. Putting together a dream isn’t all that much bother.
Secondly since the imagination is a function of the subconscious (Soul) within us, when you dream you are merely experiencing the contents of your subconscious. Your mind (spirit) gets fully absorbed through the 3rd eye, the window to the soul’s imagery, and thus in most, the mind forgets itself and lives among the soul’s light and sound imagery, or as people call it, dreaming.
A more subtle effect of this is day dreaming, and even more subtle than that and it’s called thinking. Where the soul (subconscious) constantly fires thoughts to our mind to dwell upon. Normally thoughts related to the incoming imagery of the senses.
When we die and leave the body, our minds live within the subconscious imagery for a time, that isn’t set in stone, the experience therein then formulates our next incarnation in the flesh. Or as it is called in the Bible, the second death, since this is the world of the dead.
Life is pretty much a chance of regeneration since Jesus brought the teachings of the Father here. So life on Earth is the lake of fire. Fire meaning to purify, not of eternal punishment.
Revelation 20:15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.
When we overcome this world, our name is found in the book of life (eternal) and we are resurrected from the dead of this world. If not, then we are cast again into the lake of fire which as stated, is the second death. Which is reincarnation.
Revelation 20:14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.
Prior Jesus’s coming this Earth was a prison, or should I say a trap created by the Lord God (Satan) of the Old Testament to hold us here. Jesus Teachings’s are needed to help us overcome this evil world of Satan. There’s no point in worshipping the image of the beast (Jesus’s name and image of a cross) you must apply what he taught to yourself. By turning to the Father within, and seeking his help and righteousness. There is no other way.
The subconscious of good and evil has a will of its own, it knows its purpose and is designed to keep the spirit blind to its true identity. Which is a Fallen Angel from Heaven. It is extremely intelligent, and it is the prince of this world, the wicked one’s child, which works with us the children of disobedience. It is that great city which encompasses the world
It is what we live through in life, and it is what we live in when we die. The goal is to overcome and resist it’s wiles. But as it stands most are ignorant of its devices, and because of that we’re fully controlled by it, and we’re fully in love with the imagery we identify with as our-self, and it is that in which we trust.
When it’s happy, we are happy, when it is depressed, we are depressed. We basically have no control on how we’re going to feel one day to the next. It deceives the WHOLE world. Few there be that escape it.
The Great Tribulation is the battle against the soul. It is a spiritual war, not seen on Earth since time began, nor ever will there be a war like that on Earth, because is not a war of the Earth. Jesus spoke in parables about the spirit, at ALL times.
Matthew 24:21 For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.
Why would Jesus tell his disciples to watch if it was about some great battle that brings about the end of the world.
Matthew 24:42 Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.
Meaning when you die, so keep watch over the soul and it’s many temptations.
The great battle is what brings about the end of our sojourn in this world, so that we may be raised up on the last day of our life, having overcome the soul and this world. Fought and come through the great tribulation, the battle to regain control of our mind from the soul..
Revelation 7:16 And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.
Blood of the lamb meaning actually applied Jesus’s Teachings to themselves, to become righteous.
We cannot enter into Heaven without first suffering the tribulation of our soul. it will fight tooth and nail to keep our self, the spirit (mind) bound to it and this world. It truly is a fight for life.
For everyone the tribulations are different, but they tend to focus on our weaknesses of the flesh, and our mental and emotional short comings.. Tribulations worketh patience though, so when you receive them, receive them with gladness.
Acts 14:22 Confirming the souls of the disciples, and exhorting them to continue in the faith, and that we must through much tribulation enter into the kingdom of God.
Romans 5:3 And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience.
The Father will guide us through them though, so do not fear.
2 Corinthians 1:4
Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.
Again, just Google Tribulation and see how it’s all about the things of this Earth.
1 Thessalonians 3:4 For verily, when we were with you, we told you before that we should suffer tribulation; even as it came to pass, and ye know.
Jesus said the flesh profits nothing, so he talked of the spirit only, since it is the spirit that gives life.
The Soul’s job is to keep you blind to your true identity and focused on the events of this world.
As Jesus stated many, many times. Seek to OVERCOME this world, since the works of this world are evil. He also said care not for tomorrow. So trust me, he isn’t talking about some far of future war like most believe. It is the battle within.
John 16:33 These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.
