VISION:  I saw a boy.  He was walking in water that was about waist high and he had a huge wad of gum in his mouth.  He had a fist full of gum and kept pulling the sticks out and adding them to his mouth and the gum wad kept getting bigger.  He was chewing and chewing and chewing. 


He was chewing as he was walking in the river, and for a while I watched his feet underwater.   The river bottom was completely covered with rocks and most of them were much larger than his feet, and he had to overstep them and make sure he did not stumble over these stones.  He maneuvered them really well because the water made him buoyant and he just kept walking and chewing.


Finally he reached the other side of the river, and stepped up onto a sidewalk.  At the sidewalk was a storefront that was a school on how God speaks and I saw that he had a headgear earphone on where he was listening in one ear to someone speak to him at the same time he was chewing this giant gum wad.  Somehow what he was listening to was connected to him chewing.  At the door, someone told him that if he wanted to go any further in learning about how God speaks, he could no longer add any more pieces of gum to what he was already chewing.  He had to be willing to let go of his gum wad before he could go any further. 


INTERP:  The gum represented chewing rhema questions that are pondered and mulled over but never resolved or swallowed. 

Prov 1:5-7 NKJV

A wise man will hear and increase learning, and a man of understanding will attain wise counsel,  to understand a proverb and an enigma, the words of the wise and their riddles .   The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge, But fools despise wisdom and instruction.


Stepping over the rocks is passing over stumbling stones that can cause someone to be offended or get tripped up and fall in their faith.  These stones are related to the unresolved questions that are causing the person to have to step over them in order to move forward.  These are not resolved because of lack of counsel.


Isa 57:14 NKJV

And one shall say, "Heap it up! Heap it up! Prepare the way, take the stumbling block out of the way of My people."


It was later quickened to me that many of the rocks were very lovely, as though laid out in a river bed.  They could have been memorial stones of generations of teachings and promises.


Josh 4:7 NKJV

Then you shall answer them that the waters of the Jordan were cut off before the ark of the covenant of the LORD; when it crossed over the Jordan, the waters of the Jordan were cut off. And these stones shall be for a memorial to the children of Israel forever."


Letting the gum wad go, is either asking the questions so they can be resolved or putting them aside and no longer considering them.


Isa 43:18-19 NKJV

"Do not remember the former things, Nor consider the things of old.  19 Behold, I will do a new thing , Now it shall spring forth; Shall you not know it? I will even make a road in the wilderness  And rivers in the desert.


Walking through the river is receiving corporate rhema from the river of God that has progressed to waist high level. 


Ezek 47:4-5  NKJV

Again he measured one thousand and brought me through the waters; the water came up to my knees. Again he measured one thousand and brought me through; the water came up to my waist. 5 Again he measured one thousand, and it was a river that I could not cross; for the water was too deep, water in which one must swim, a river that could not be crossed.


Listening through the earphone in one ear is listening to the voice of God spoken from a teacher. 


Isa 30:20-21 NKJV

And though the Lord gives you the bread of adversity and the water of affliction, Yet your teachers will not be moved into a corner anymore, but your eyes shall see your teachers.  21 Your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, "This is the way, walk in it," Whenever you turn to the right hand  or whenever you turn to the left.



The QW prophetic class interpreted this vision and came up with some wonderful applications.
