I was swimming in a big pool of… popcorn. I knew this experience wasn’t about popcorn so I asked the Lord, “what is this?” He told me this popcorn was revelation – revelation of the Word that I’ve heard taught, read in books… good revelation of the Kingdom of God. Then I came across a burnt piece of popcorn in my ‘pool’ of good popcorn. The Lord showed me that I didn’t ever need to worry about false teaching or revelation because I would be able to tell it was bad (or ‘burnt’) and could just throw it out. I didn’t need to live in fear about coming across false teaching because I would know the difference – like anyone who has every eaten popcorn, I could tell good popcorn from burnt popcorn.
Then I found myself swimming in a pool of unpopped popcorn. Just kernels. The Lord told me that this was a pool of my own revelation. That the oil of Holy Spirit that I was filled with would pop these kernels – this would be the truths revealed to me, from His Word, from His Voice – that would pop from the oil of Holy Spirit on me.
