On 9/23/2016, I had the following dream:

I dreamt that I was in the coatroom of a banquet hall for a wedding celebration. The hall was filled with people.  There was a dress that was laid out for the bride, but she never came; however a new bride came. This bride’s name was Wendy.  As she entered the room, she smiled but didn’t say a word. Her hair was curly with locks of golden brown.  The Lord told me that her hair was made with the sand of eternity.

When I went to give her the dress, a second wending dress appeared supernaturally. I knew that this second dress was the one I was to give her.  At that time, I raised a tambourine embedded with silver bells, held it high in my right hand, and shook it to get everyone’s attention.

Revelation and Interpretation by Michelle Daniels and Matthew Gargano:

The year 5777/2017 is the Year of the Bridegroom. It is the year that Jesus is on the earth preparing His bride, the church.  The Lord allowed us to see, in part, what His bride will look like:

“Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for her, that He might sanctify and cleanse her with the washing of water by the word, and that He might present her to Himself a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but that she should be holy and without blemish” (Ephesians 5:25b-27).

The bride that those were expecting did not come, because she was the notion of the bride that was conjured up by the unsurrendered soul and the flesh (the image of what “church” people thought the bride should look like).

The true bride, the one worthy and acceptable unto Jesus, came forth with the name Wendy, and curly golden-brown hair. The very name Wendy means “friend” (Thompson and Beale, The Divinity Code).

“As the Father loved Me, I also have loved you; abide in My love.  If you keep my commandments, you will abide in My love, just as I have kept My Father’s commandments and abide in His love.  These things I have spoken to you, that My joy remain in you, and that your joy may be full.  This is My commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you.  Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends.  You are my friends if you do whatever I command you.  No longer do I call you servants, for a servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you my friends, for all things that I heard from My Father, I have made known to you.  You did not choose Me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit should remain. That whatever you ask the Father in My Name He may give you.  These things I command you, that you love one another” (John 15:9-17).

“Hair represents covenant, anointing, humbling love and devotion (Judges 16:17, 19-20, Luke 7:38); and curly hair represents God’s Glory (Daniel 7:9). Golden symbolizes refined, pure, holy, God’s Glory, beautiful, valuable, deeds done in God’s Holy Spirit (Thompson and Beale). With brown mixed in being the result or outcome of a repentant heart bathed in humility.

The bride was of average appearance (outside), but her countenance was beyond beautiful (that which radiated from within—the heart).  She didn’t need to say a word, because her countenance was her voice which spoke in the language of the Spirit.  She was not outwardly adorned, which represents what looks good to the world (miracles, signs, and wonders), as she had moved beyond that.

The people who focus on the outward appearance are those who have little to no relationship with the Lord—those in which Jesus said “I know you not” (Matthew 7:23).  The bride was not concerned with outward appearances, but rather the inward, which represented falling in love with Jesus.

Jesus’ true bride could never be adorned in anything made by the world, which is why the second wedding dress appeared supernaturally, which was her true adornment.

The fact that the Lord said that the bride’s hair was “made with the sands of eternity” represent how eternity has now invaded time. Just as it did when Jesus was born and walked the earth, and is now walking on the earth.  He is inspecting the fig trees (the churches), and He is judging their fruit, or lack of fruit, for the purpose of preparing His bride.  This is also a time of determining who will be among the wise and who will be among the foolish virgins; for the choices of the heart that we make will either bring us closer to God, or move us farther away from Him.

The fact that the tambourine was lifted up high in the right hand, getting everyone’s attention, is representative of our call to lift Jesus up high that all people would be drawn to Him (John 12:32).  Jesus is God’s gift to us; and we, as a bride, are a gift back to Him.  The right represents God’s power revealed through flesh (Exodus 15:6, 1 Peter 3:22).

The three 7’s of the Hebrew year 5777 (2017) represent perfection, completion, and alignment of our spirt, soul, and body; jointly fit and grafted into the Holy Trinity—God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.  The 5 represents this process of perfection, completion, and alignment which is anchored in God’s Grace, made manifest in the birth, life, and resurrection of His Son, our Lord, Savior, and Bridegroom, Jesus Christ.  These sevens also represent three doors facing to the left; again, representing the Trinity, with left being the direction of God’s strength or ability demonstrated trough man’s weakness (2 Corinthians 12:9a-10b, Judges, 20:16).

The three 7’s are the product of 21 (3*7), which represents fullness or the completion of spiritual perfection, expecting God, serving God (Exodus 12:18, Daniel 10:13, Haggai 2:1, Thompson and Beale).

This is a season of consecration and preparation. This is a season of asking, believing, and receiving God’s heart as our own.  This is a season of the bride tarrying in the bridal chamber, preparing, and eagerly awaiting her Bridegroom.

“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.  For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.  And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, so must the Son of Man be lifted up, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life” (John 3:16-17, 14).

“Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in, and we will share a meal as friends” (Revelation 3:20).

“I am the door. If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out to find pasture” (John 10:9).

“And He said unto me, My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness” (2 Corinthians 12:9).

“And Jesus spoke to them saying, ‘All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth.  Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commended you; and lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the age.’ Amen” (Matthew 28:16-20)

And in service of the Most High King,
