And not only the creation, but we ourselves too, who have and enjoy the first-fruits of the Set-Apart Spirit—a foretaste of the blissful things to come, groan inwardly as we wait for the redemption of our bodies from sensuality and the grave, which will reveal our adoption—our manifestation as the Father/Creator’s children.
For in this hope we were saved. But hope the object of which is seen is not hope. For how can one hope for what he already sees?
But if we hope for what is still unseen by us, we wait for it with patience and composure.
So too the Set-Apart Spirit comes to our aid and bears us up in our weakness; for we do not know what prayer to offer nor how to offer it worthily as we ought, but the Spirit Himself goes to meet our supplication and pleads in our behalf with unspeakable yearnings and groanings too deep for utterance. End of quote.
What’s with A dream—dreams?
For the answer, let me paraphrase Romans 8 and Hebrews 12:
My dreams are messages to encourage me to put my efforts and focus towards my one goal and passionate desire—to abide in my Father/Creator’s Presence under His loving control and dominion forever.
My thoughts, feelings, emotions, actions and overall outlook are being boosting by so great a cloud of witnesses, who have borne testimony to the Truth.
So that I can continue to manifest the work of the Father/Creator in my life. Building strong foundations from well-laid plans ensures future progress, stability and success. The crowd of witnesses encourage me to work, to live my life with your passion and drive.
Therefore? I am empowered to strip off and throw aside every encumbrance unnecessary weight, as my fears/doubts/unbelief—the sins which so readily, deftly and cleverly cling to and entangle me unrelentingly.
