The Chinese Dragon
A Vision Seen in England
I saw a vision on the morning of 24 October 2003 at 0721 of what I suppose was a demon lying down as I was. It reminded me of a Singapore or Chinese dragon. It was a close-up ... of the head. Its eyes were black and piercing ... and angry. As I prayed, beings of light came down with what looked like wings and entered the eyes [of the dragon] until they disappeared and the demon/mask disappeared also. There were several of them. I could not see the angels (if that is what they were) clearly. Indeed, as I come to think of it, they were DOVES. They did not have a clear outline but seemed to be made of pure energy - they pulsated and moved with such beauty ... streams of highly organised and complex light. (From the Diary of Lev-Tsiyon, 23 October 2003, England)
I had quiote forgotten this vision which I saw seven years ago while lying on my hôtel bed in England whilst on a month's visit. Some of my readers may not be aware that I was born in Singapore and lived my childhood in Malaysia. During that period of time I came to admire and love the Chinese people and Chinese culture, many of our family friends being from amongst them. Inevitably one picks up the good and bad in any culture one lives in and comes to accept. For some reason Yahweh chose this moment in time for me to make contact with this 'layer' of my being which had picked up some of the dark side of that culture. For some reason I did not, at the time, equate the 'angelic' beings with the sevenfold Ruach haQodesh (Holy Spirit), or at least some aspect of Their activity, and particularly Their connection with vision or sight:
In this action the Ruach haQodesh (Holy Spirit) is deactivating a false way of viewing some things inherited from Chinese culture as She enters the eyes of the dragon. Once accomplished, the dragon's head disappeared signifying the removal of the demonic mechanism.
"And I looked, and behold, in the midst of the throne and of the four living creatures, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as though it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Ruachim (Spirits) of Elohim (God) sent out into all the earth" (Rev.5:6, NKJV).
We must never be so arrogant or proud as to assume that our various cultures are acceptable to Yahweh. Very often culture is simply what is left after you have forgotten why you do it. All culture must be measured against the Word of God, the good retained and the bad dismissed along with any lies and demonic influences. It is only a half-truth to say that the Gospel belongs to 'all cultures' - the Gospel is, in truth, a culture all of its own and it is that to which we must conform or else be partically blinded.
"Then one was brought to Him who was demon-possessed, blind and mute; and He healed him, so that the blind and mute man both spoke and saw. And all the multitudes were amazed..." (Matt.12:22-23, NKJV).
