Hello Heartdwellers family, I wanted to introduce this message, and it means a lot to me because the young lady sharing this message, is my own sister. She’s the fifth- youngest girl out of six. The LORD has been so merciful on our family and delivered us from so much. She has a powerful testimony of her own, after dealing with much insecurity and the LORD delivering her from mental sickness, suicide attempts, and sexual abuse. She has now given her life completely to the LORD and is really on fire for him. She, too, hears from the LORD and gets prophetic messages from Him, and has many prophetic dreams. I encouraged her to start her own channel, and she has. This is her first video from a powerful dream she had when she was taken to the judgment seat of God and judged for how she used her time. I believe this will resonate with so many young people because this is a common idol to many in our generation, and it could lead you to eternal separation from the LORD. In Exodus 20:3 he says, “You shall have no other god beside me”. Whomever or whatever you give most of your time to is your god. So let me ask you, who is your god?
Hey viewers, I appreciate your watching this video. I’m simply just wanting to share, just the dream that I had about God telling, straight up that I have made social media an idol. Again, this video is not to say that social media, if you have Instagram, Facebook, Snapchat, all that stuff, that it’s bad or it’s a sin, it’s far from the truth. This, again, just pertains to me—me, and my walk with and personally what he sees fit and unfit in my life, that may be keeping me away from him, and, in this case, it’s social media. Now, I know exactly what I do with my time; given that each and every one of us is given 24 hours in a day, what we do with that time, the balance, and all of that good stuff. For me, embarrassing and sadly enough, I have to say that it involved me simply just literally—when I say literally, for more than four hours I could just lie down or sit in one sitting and just scroll on social media, whether it’s Instagram—normally it’s YouTube—but it could be Instagram—I used to have Facebook but, I just felt led to delete that because I felt like that was one of the main things that was hindering me personally—again this is a personal issue, so if you’re using Instagram or social media, just social media in general, with a healthy balance, kudos to you. But for me, this was not the case.
So, right into the dream…
In this dream, I was in an open field. In this open field—again, I couldn’t see myself, so it was like I was just watching and looking—so, in this big open field, there were rows of people that were lined up. These people that were lined up were literally just standing in a line, one behind the other, row by row, kind of like the military-style. No one was interacting with each other, everyone was just looking straight, it even kind of looked like people couldn’t recognize the other people who were next to them. So, again, at the bottom it was like two stacks of people so at the very bottom stack—it was weird because in the dream, I automatically had an idea—or I knew, I just knew that the people in the bottom were the people that were going to hell and the people in the top, they were going to heaven, they had eternal life. The people at the bottom were out of luck. Mind you, these people at the top that had eternal life, there were very few compared to the people at the bottom. I just want to back this up with scripture. In Matthew 7:13-14, it says;
“Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. 14 Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.”
This just stuck with me. So again, the people at the top were very few, I knew automatically that they had eternal life. The people at the bottom—it was a lot of people, countless, very broad, and I just knew automatically that these people were going to hell.
In front of these people, there was a judge. And this judge was not happy, and I knew that this judge represented God, Jesus, himself judging everyone. And to back this up with scripture, this is Revelation 20:12;
“And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and books were opened. Another book was opened, which is the book of life. The dead were judged according to what they had done as recorded in the books.”
So again, these people were just forward, looking at this judge, waiting to be judged, waiting for it to be their turn. Right next to them was a huge lake, a long lake that stretched out on the side, and next to everyone standing was a big lake, literally as it opened up it became a portal to hell. This portal then was a ring of fire as it opened. As God was throwing people, not throwing but casting people, just as the Bible says, into this lake of fire. And of course, just to test everything I had to refer back to scripture, which it also says in plenty of others, but I went ahead and chose Revelation 21:8, this one says;
“But as for the cowardly, the faithless, the detestable, as for murderers, the sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars, their portion will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur, which is the second death.”
That definitely resonated with me. Many people, again, were being cast into the lake of fire. Then, at that moment, everything changed. God then turned his face to me—again, this person who was symbolizing God—I didn’t really see their face, it was like a regular judge you would see in a courtroom. But again, like I said, the whole dream in itself is symbolic. So God then turned himself to me and told me, “You’ve made social media an idol” in a very angered voice. Literally, you guys, that was it. I stepped back…I was taken back in the dream, and I stepped back a little and I woke up.
As I woke up, of course, I was like, okay well, what was that about? But again I knew exactly what God had just told me straight up because again, I knew how I had been just so distracted and so just in tuned and so consumed in social media. And when I say social media, I mean YouTube, Facebook, Instagram…I don’t even have to speak anymore…but just social media, anything, just even my phone in general. It’s like a little social media device that I carry around that I am so attached to. I feel like a lot of people are the same way. We panic whenever we can’t find our phone. And I remember there was a pastor I was watching one day that said that only if Christians would treat their Bibles like they do their phones, the world would be so much different. And I feel I stand behind that.
So I am just praying to God that he would release me of this…idol worship, that I didn’t even know…like, I kind of knew, like, okay, I’m giving myself so much
time to this. But for it to become an idol, in my head, I’m like, “Ugh, naw, it can’t happen. But we don’t realize how many things can become an idol. Just think about whatever you give your time to, 90% of the time, whether it is a person, a job, you know, if God is not before that or if he is not before everything you do, or your first priority, or everything kind of shifts back to Him, just kind of really examine and ask yourself. But also be encouraged because, like I said, God is a good Father. I am so thankful that I had this dream. It wasn’t to condemn me, it wasn’t to make me feel bad, but it was it to make me aware, like okay, seek God watchfully he can be found, because there will be a time where that won’t exist, it will be too late. And just like the parent, if you are a parent, you correct your children whenever they’re going the wrong way or they are doing something you don’t approve of, you correct them in love. Although you might be angry, it’s a righteous anger because it’s like you want them to do it the right way. And God does this, he corrects us, chastises us, rebukes us, all that stuff, but it is for our good. So, if you’ve ever had a similar dream where you thought God was speaking to you or kind of correcting you, take it. It’s not the devil condemning you. Like I said, there is a difference between condemnation and conviction. Moving forward, sorry I got off track. When I woke up from this dream (just to close everything out) I came across Leviticus 26., and I kid you not, I literally just asked the Holy Spirit—Holy Spirit, speak to me what you were trying to tell me in this dream. Lo and behold, I opened up and I prayed, and I got Leviticus 26 that said;
“Do not make idols or set up an image, or a sacred stone for yourselves, and do not place a carved stone in your land to bow down to or before it. I am the LORD your God.”
Sorry, I was getting a little bit emotional but yeah, that stuck with me, and it will stick with me. And again, I am so thankful that God gave me this dream. But I just want to warn those who are just so intertwined and so devoted to their phone. It has nothing to do with social media, it’s something else. Just be aware of where you’re giving your time and how much time you’re investing in it and in the end, how is it having an impact on God’s kingdom. Again, social media can be very good and can be used as a platform to glorify God, to share His word, to encourage other people. So it’s not like it’s bad but it’s just a matter of what are we doing on there, are we just wasting time…, idle time that we could be doing something else? we could be just thanking God, or are we distracted? Just a number of things. The one thing I want those listening and those who have chosen to watch this video all the way to the end, I thank you so much, God bless you. I just want this to be as an encouragement to really just step back and examine your life and, like I said, what you are giving your time to and how much time we’re giving God. And truly just seeking him because He’s our loving father, he cares.
Time is running short, whether people want to believe it or not, I mean you look at the Bible, we’re in the End Time, I don’t care what anyone has to say, I mean, it says it himself just like we know the season is coming for summer and fall, etc. We know the season is coming to an end very soon. Nobody knows the day nor the hour, but in this time that we’re given, let us not waste it doing things that we’ll be standing at the end of our lives, and we know that it is still meaningless. Just take that and just be encouraged. And thank you so much for watching. I pray you guys have a blessed day.
