Several years ago, I dreamed about two plump pomegranates. One was much larger than the other, both were cracked, revealing glistening bright purplish-red seeds inside. When I prayed for the interpretation, the Holy Spirit showed me these represented the church in China and in Japan. These will be persecuted, but they are ripe fruit- ready for the harvest. Pomegranates grow in the drier regions of southeast Asia.
Here is the question sent to me:
Last night, I dreamed of a very ripe plantain. What does it mean?Ripe fruit represents something ready to be harvested. It could represent a business opportunity, a relationship, or even a level of personal development. However, the most common interpretation I see is that of people ready to enter the Kingdom of God.
Why different fruit? Why not show other kinds of fruits? I believe the plantain shown to you represents one specific person you know. This person is very likely from South America, or of South American ancestry, where fried plantains are a staple food. (Very tasty, by the way.)
When my wife and I arrived in Ukraine, she received a dream of a vast orchard of apples. The fruit was so heavy, all the branches were bowing under the weight.
In 2002, I attended a conference in South Carolina. The main speaker, George, spoke about timelines in scripture. He was a messianic Jew, and had an amazing grasp of continuity between the Old Testament and the New Testament. A few weeks after the meeting, I walked with him in a dream (Most likely, this was Jesus, the Holy Spirit, or an angel. However, my mind substituted in the face of a recent encounter.). He showed me first a large orchard of oranges. "It is a great joy to bring in the fruit," he said, gesturing toward the trees. Then, he turned me to look behind us. There, invisible at first against a black backdrop, slowly came into view an entirely black orchard. On the trees, even black oranges were visible.
George nudged my arm and I moved into the orchard. We walked together. "But," he said, "the greatest joy is to harvest where other workers have come and gone." Then, I noticed a bright, bright orange hanging between two branches. We continued our walk. I noticed others, too. They were all hidden at first glance. But, they were there: ripe oranges waiting to enter the Kingdom!
Here, oranges represent gentiles in the large orchard, and blood descendants of Abraham in the second orchard.
In scripture, the Jews are represented as figs.
