The Dream About the Nails

December 12, 2011 I had a strange dream. I don’t remember all the details. I just remember there was like a flood of water covering the land in a certain area, then when the waters receded there where these piles of six foot long nails in a couple places. I remember this feeling of wonderment of what the nails were used for while dreaming.

Couldn’t really say what the dream really meant if it meant anything. I’ve been pondering it though, because it sticks in my mind for some reason.

The water and nails remind me of things that happened to Jesus when he walked the earth. The water reminds me of his baptism and the nails remind me of his death on the cross. But the size of the nails could have only been used on a giant of a man.

Hmmmm….. is Jesus bigger than we think he is? Is our concept of who Jesus really is too small? Is he so much more than any of us can comprehend? I believe he is.

When someone is baptized they usually are immersed in water to symbolize death and when they arise from the water it is symbolic of a new life in Christ. (Death and Resurrection) So it is interesting that the nails were under the water and revealed when it receded.

Holy Week Explained

“Holy Week Explained” tells why this very special week is so Holy to Christians today. For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. (NKJV) John 3:16

Holy Week Explained…Excerpts

“The Crucifixion of Jesus Christ is the nexus of our faith–the key to restored relationship with God. The story of God coming to earth as one of us to die, at first glance, seems outrageously far-fetched. Yet all of Scripture either seems to point toward Christ’s crucifixion or deals with the new reality of renewed relationship brought about through this historical event. Although it is Christ’s resurrection that concludes the “life and death” drama of Holy Week, in a sense, the resurrection serves as God’s unambiguous confirmation that his forgiveness was accomplished — the spell of sin broken — and that Christ’s victory over death has, indeed, been won.” …

… “God, through his Son, suffered death so that we might live. In the book of Hebrews (2.14b, 15) it says, ‘Jesus himself became like (us) and shared (our) human nature. He did this so that through his death he might destroy the Devil, who has the power over death, and in this way set free those who were slaves all their lives because of their fear of death.’ It is the gift of Good Friday and the confirmation of Easter. God, through Christ, suffered the pain — the spiritual pain of separation — for our sins. Such is God’s love gift offered to us this and every Easter (or Holy Week).”
