Who Is the Woman Dressed in Purple?

Hi J____,

I am very happy to know that you are being edified by what you are reading on iswasandwillbe. com All I can do is give you the Biblical principles by which we should all “try the spirits to see whether they are of God” (1Jh 4:1). The scriptures give us the principles for doing that, and they give us the meanings of virtually every single symbol that appears anywhere in scripture.

One such principle is that the symbols in your dream, like the symbols in Pharaoh’s dreams are one.

Gen 41:25 And Joseph said unto Pharaoh, The dream of Pharaoh is one: God hath shewed Pharaoh what he is about to do.

Pharaoh had dreamed of cows and of stalks of corn, and God gave Joseph realize that they were both symbols for the same thing. In your dream you have the symbols of damaged cars which did not at first appear to be damaged, and of a woman dressed in purple who wanted you to “sit by her” instead of being diligent in watch where you were going.

The woman in purple is obviously a false church:

Rev 17:3 So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.
Rev 17:4 And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication:
Rev 17:6 And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.

Mankind is that “scarlet colored beast” and “the mother of harlots” and all of her many daughters ride upon our flesh, just as that woman wants you to let her do the driving, which always leads to being rudderless and leads to a certain life of damage. The damaged cars are simply the revelation of where you are when you listen to that woman. So the essence of your dream is the call we are given in Rev 18:4:

Rev 18:4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.

“That you be not partakers of her sins and that you receive not of her plagues” is actually saying that you no longer partake of her sins and you no longer receive of her plagues, because the truth of “the sum of God’s Word” (Psa 119:160) is:

Rev 15:1 And I saw another sign in heaven, great and marvellous, seven angels having the seven last plagues; for in them is filled up the wrath of God.
Rev 15:2 And I saw as it were a sea of glass mingled with fire: and them that had gotten the victory over the beast, and over his image, and over his mark, and over the number of his name, stand on the sea of glass, having the harps of God.
Rev 15:8 And the temple was filled with smoke from the glory of God, and from his power; and no man was able to enter into the temple, till the seven plagues of the seven angels were fulfilled.

It is in ‘coming out of her’ that we gain that victory. Your passenger in your car was those who God has placed in your life and to whom your life is a witness.

Luk 24:48 And ye are witnesses of these things.

I hope these scriptures help you to understand the significance of your dream. God uses dreams to both confirm His Word and to keep us in deep deception.

Deu 13:1 If there arise among you a prophet, or a dreamer of dreams, and giveth thee a sign or a wonder,
Deu 13:2 And the sign or the wonder come to pass, whereof he spake unto thee, saying, Let us go after other gods, which thou hast not known, and let us serve them;
Deu 13:3 Thou shalt not hearken unto the words of that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams: for the LORD your God proveth you, to know whether ye love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul.
Deu 13:4 Ye shall walk after the LORD your God, and fear him, and keep his commandments, and obey his voice, and ye shall serve him, and cleave unto him.
Deu 13:5 And that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams, shall be put to death; because he hath spoken to turn you away from the LORD your God, which brought you out of the land of Egypt, and redeemed you out of the house of bondage, to thrust thee out of the way which the LORD thy God commanded thee to walk in. So shalt thou put the evil away from the midst of thee.

The “other gods” are the false doctrine of “another Jesus”. That is the “other gods”, and if we know God’s Word, we will never make the mistake that is so extremely common in today’s churches of “thinking above what is written”.

2Co 11:4 For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him.
1Co 4:6 And these things, brethren, I did transfer to myself and to Apollos because of you, that in us ye may learn not to think above that which hath been written, that ye may not be puffed up one for one against the other,

When we think of dreams “above what has been written” God has given us over to “the idols of our heart” (Eze 14:1-9), and He Himself has deceived us (verse 9). Read about all the symbols in our studies on the Book of Revelation. Stay in your Bible, and you will be given to try the spirits, and in doing that you will know how to understand you dreams based upon God’s Word. Never ever reverse that order or you will be the prophet of Deu 13:1-5 and:

Deu 18:20 But the prophet, which shall presume to speak a word in my name, which I have not commanded him to speak, or that shall speak in the name of other gods, even that prophet shall die.
Deu 18:21 And if thou say in thine heart, How shall we know the word which the LORD hath not spoken?
Deu 18:22 When a prophet speaketh in the name of the LORD, if the thing follow not, nor come to pass, that is the thing which the LORD hath not spoken, but the prophet hath spoken it presumptuously: thou shalt not be afraid of him.

Your brother in our Lord’s service,
