I saw a person standing in the shoreline behind a huge rock. It was a stone that was round, about 12 feet tall. It was too large for anyone to lift. It blocked the way out of the shallow water. I understood this stone to be the fears and failures, the shame and sins of this person. There was writing on the stone that said, “You will never remove this stone!” There was a snake like fish with shiny scales swimming coming in from the deeper water. He would raise his head and tell the person, “you can move that rock out of your way, just try, I know you can do it.” The person would bend over and try and the snake would laugh in delight. Or he would whisper, “that is a memorial of who you are, you have come through so much, look how you have suffered. You didn’t deserve to be treated that way.” And the person would bow down in front of the rock. When the person bowed before the rock the snake would swell and appear larger than life. I saw Jesus on the shore. He picked up the rock, lifted it over His head and heaved it completely over the person. The rock crushed the head of the swollen pride snake. Jesus was pounding His chest, with His head held back hollering. He wanted the person to watch and praise Him for what He had done. As the person praised Him, he began to walk out of the water, for the path was clear. The stone of condemnation had been removed by the power and love of Jesus.
Romans 8:1 Therefore there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.
Isaiah 62:10 Go out, go out through the gates; prepare a way for the people! Build it up, build up the highway; clear away the stones! Raise a banner for the peoples.
Psalm 100:4 Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise. Give thanks to Him and praise His name.
