Don't allow the wound of the past to hinder you!

The Dream

The Lord gave me some time ago a vivid dream, where he was showing me a former college of me and his son, who was rescued after a drowning and laying in a room of the first aid at the hospital. In the dream I was with my college and some other people in the first aid room and I could see, that his son was still alive but there was the danger of dying because of the measure of water, that he had swallowed up.

As I saw the danger of his death coming, I began to scream out with full passion: “JESUS! JESUS! JESUS (note: means "JAHWE is salvation, saves!"- Psalm 50:15)!"

I could see, that there was a fight going on in the person.
After this I woke up and felt still the danger between life and death in the atmosphere.

Abraham’s leaving from Ur (
“moon city”= city of darkness) in Chaldea (“manly, warlike”= own strength)

As I meditated about the dream, the Lord reminded me on Abraham as he was in the transition time to leave Ur in Chaldea with his father Terach/ Tharah (note: means
“a dithering person”= not making a clear dicision= James 1:6-8; "scratching into the skin"= selfdestruction, because of feeling guilty of the death/ loss of a person, Leviticus 19:28) and some of the family (see Genesis 11:27-32).

Genesis 11:27-32 (NIV):
27 This is the account of Terah’s family line. Terah became the father of Abram, Nahor and Haran. And Haran became the father of Lot.
28 While his father Terah was still alive, Haran (note: means “mountainous, way or street”= representing prideful lifestyle) died in Ur of the Chaldeans, in the land of his birth.
29 Abram and Nahor both married. The name of Abram’s wife was Sarai, and the name of Nahor’s wife was Milkah; she was the daughter of Haran, the father of both Milkah and Iskah.
30 Now Sarai was childless because she was not able to conceive.
31 Terah took his son Abram, his grandson Lot son of Haran, and his daughter-in-law Sarai, the wife of his son Abram, and together they set out from Ur of the Chaldeans to go to Canaan. But when they came to Harran, they settled there.
32 Terah lived 205 years, and he died in Haran.

The settling down of the father of Abraham, Tarah/ Terach in Haran is showing, that his soul got hurt by the death of his son Haran, that brought him to an emotional feeling, that blocked him to leave his present circumstance to step into his land of destiny- Canaan (note: means
“lowland”= the root word “Kana” means “to bow the knee”= humility).

The Sting of Death

Death has a sting, that produces pain but if we deal not with the pain it can hold us back to enter into the fullness of our destiny (see 1 Corinthians 15:55 in conjunction with Luke 9:62; Philippians 3:13-14).

1 Corinthians 15:55 (NIV):
55 “Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting?”

Luke 9:62 (NIV):
62 Jesus replied, “No one who puts a hand to the plow and looks back is fit for service in the kingdom of God.”

Philippians 3:13-14 (NIV):
13 Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, 14 I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.

The Place of Terachs Death

We can recognize this process of the stinging pain by the place where Tarah/ Terach died.
He died in Charan, which is the same pronunciation as the name of his son Haran (note: means
“mountainous, way or street”)
The name of the region “Charan” means
“a place dried up or parched with the sun" (note: exhausted by painful experiences).

The time of Mourning and the time of Joy

This means not, that we are not allowed to mourn over a period of time (see Numbers 20:29- 30 days of mourning by the people of Israel, because of the death of Aaron; Numbers 33:38-39) but we must still have the knowing in our hearts, that we finish the season of mourning and entering into the next season of harvest and this is the season of joy, because if we sow in tears we will reap in joy (see Psalm 126:5).

Psalm 126:5 (NIV):
5 Those who sow with tears will reap with songs of joy.

Don’t let the water of the past hurt/ trauma influence your now life anymore. Deal with it and give it to Jesus.
Embrace the middle cross of Calvary fully and receive the full power of the victory of the Lamb of God, that was slain.

Amen and Amen.

In His Glory,
