Last night while babysitting, I read the classic Oh the Thinks You can Think by Dr. Suess. I felt the Holy Spirit quickening me through some of the riddles in the book, including the page above.
It says (bold emphasis mine):
Oh, the THINKS you can think! Think of Peter the Postman who crosses the ice, once every day—and on Saturdays, twice.
I didn’t know what these creatures from Suess’ imaginary menagerie are actually called, but I said to the little girl I was reading to, “Hey, these look like walruses!”
Then today, I received this message in my inbox from my mentor, John Paul Peters of Eagle Focus International Ministries. Lately, he has been sending messages on a daily basis.
The message contained a link to his video on Eagle ITV on YouTube.
He had a dream about an older couple walking down a road, and there were walruses on either side. They were throwing dimes at the walruses. He said the walruses represent the work of the ministry, fellowshipping with God in the deep places. The dimes represent the tithe (ten percent) that is being released to support the ministry.
So, looking at the Dr. Suess riddle with fresh eyes, I see that “Peter the Postman” represents John Paul Peters being sent by God to release the GOOD NEWS about God’s provision. A postman or courier represents the APOSTOLIC calling. (see here)
I do not believe it was a glitch that the email was sent twice. Sometimes God will repeat, or echo, something to get our attention. For example, dreams or prophecies that are repeated are God’s sign that He is confirming and establishing something in our lives.
I am encouraged that as we continue to seek the Lord and live by faith in our ministries, He will be faithful to provide every need! He will break the ice, and open up new portals for provision, healing and the riches of the deep to be uncovered! Amen!
Scriptures to Ponder
Joseph, interpreting Pharoah’s dream:
As for having two similar dreams, it means that these events have been decreed [established] by God, and he will soon make them happen. Genesis 41:32
For God does speak–now one way, now another–though man may not perceive it. Job 33:14
