Just one of several thousand end-time voices.
The discount supermarket is the world. The aisles of food and merchandise represent all of the choices or information that is available for people to believe in or ‘consume.’ The beans represent the truth—the Word of God (Scripture). The oil also represents the truth or discernment by the Holy Spirit and by purchasing (consuming) the beans (the truth of the Word) we also receive the oil which fills our lamps for the tarrying of the Lord (See the parable of the 10 virgins – Matthew 25: 1-13).
[The shelves will soon be empty as a famine will sweep across the world and no beans will be found. Those who have not acquired and consumed the beans will search the world to and fro and will find no beans. Sadly, they will starve (die), never to live again. (Amos 8:11-14) ]
The customer looking for baked beans represents a seeker of the truth. He only wants what is safe (worthy) and good (joyful) to serve to his guests as well as himself. Notice that he continues to shop (search) until he finds what he is looking for (the truth).
The baked beans represent the ‘finer’ blessings of the Lord. To some, He provides delicious and nutritious white beans (necessities), to others He gives even baked beans (abundant luxury and riches). But whether we get baked beans, white beans, or brown beans, we are thankful for each.
The large, institutional-size cans represent the institutions of religions and denominations, especially the larger and older ones, that are no longer safe to consume (get the truth from). Though the contents within may look okay, they just can’t be trusted to consume as they may contain contaminants that might cause illness and possibly even death. God will be very angry when He has to pour out such large quantities of truth that institutions of religion could have fed to the congregations. The members of these churches, because they did not have a love for the truth, have shopped the same supermarket we all have and have left these cans of truth sitting on the shelves collecting dust, dirt, and rust. Though the church has led them astray, they blindly followed a false shepherd, not knowing the true voice of the Master—Who is revealed in the Bible.
The woman represents a strong believer who understands the Word fully. She doesn’t even buy pre-cooked beans but gets right down to the best beans to cook for the best pot of beans and the most economical as well. The mixed beans represent the full Scriptures, from Genesis to Revelation, from creation to salvation—from limas to lentils and navies to northerns—this woman walks the walk, talks the talk, and those who she meets are blessed by her spirit. I may not have seen those combo packages of mixed beans and spices had she not come along while I was there shopping.
The plain white box of assorted spice represents the added blessings God gives to those who love and seek the truth. The fact that these spices are hidden in a plain white box with no labels or descriptions is indicative of the ways of God; that there are blessings (flavors) we don’t yet see or realize until we begin to understand the fullness of the Word of God as this woman has.
Her quiet husband is a bit reserved and represents the timidity of the modern man in things of a spiritual nature. He is faithful to his wife and their relationship is good, but his vision is limited pretty much to the weekly routine of work and following the lead of his wife. She is perfectly content with a faithful husband. Ironically, in most instances it is the macho-type male who is most insecure of spiritual matters.
[The small cans of beans are first in contrast to what the large cans of beans are and that is as the large cans represent the “few” large churches and institutional churches, the small cans represent many small churches and home fellowships.] The small cans also represent smaller portions of the truth; smaller doses if you will. I believe this is a message specifically directed to me personally and tells me not to try to “win the debate” in trying to help someone see the truth. Give the Word of God in smaller segments or even individual Scriptures rather than trying to serve “too many beans” up at one time.
The full cases of beans that I purchased and the full cases of baked beans that the gentleman purchased represent our willingness to share the truth and spread the Word of God. The gentleman purchased what he needed for his large gathering (service) and I purchased all that they had left of the white beans which was all I could afford, anyway. [The full cases may also represent ‘the full church’ or the ‘complete church’ as in…not one missing!]
The bean can labels, which you can see in the inserted images are basic, 2 color labels. This again strongly represents the simple, “black and white” text of the Scriptures. But though the colors may be limited, there is a purpose in the wording and also in the design. There is order in everything God does including the writing, compiling, translating, and publishing of His word. His cans are in order.
The rude young man represents the scoffers, mockers, and persecutors of the believers. The fact that this young man works in this fine establishment—as will soon see—is just as it is today with unbelievers, truth-haters, and the proud mingled in amidst the true believers. Regardless of where you go, they will be there. Even in your home Bible study you are likely to have 1 out 12 who will betray you. But they have their purpose in God’s great plan just as Judas did in our redemption. We should try to reach these as God would that not one single of His creation perish. In obedience we try to love our enemies as best as we are able.
The very kind and self-assured owner at the cash register represents the Lord in these amazing dimensions. First, he was at the cash register even as I pulled my cart into the checkout lane (Before I called…He answered-Isa 65:24). Then, he greeted me with a warm reception and welcoming and proceeding to alleviate my fears (concern) about something the young man said. He was not bitter or harsh but seemed to accept that this young man had other things on his mind—or perhaps others god(s)on his mind. But I consider this, that though the young man was averse to his boss’ ways, the owner still provided a job for him and treated him very well.
“And it shall come to pass, that before they call, I will answer; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear.” – Isa 65:24 KJV
The owner asking me about the construction project is related to the gathering in of the Saints. Although this part seems more vague to me than earlier parts of the visit (dream), there are some parts that seem relevant and more clear. I can’t quite understand the trailer and material unless it represents the rebuilding of Jerusalem (the world) ‘trailing’ the return of Jesus Christ. The trailer being not so long at *sixteen feet may indicate a short or fast rebuilding period, which the Scriptures seem to implicate.
*[The number 12 represents the fullness of the Trinity. But is it possible that the number 16 represents heaven? That the reclamation and restoration of Adam (God’s creation) is the fourth dimension or fourth quarter of His perfect eternal kingdom? To understand this more clearly, it might be helpful to view the Tribes & Trinity video following this link.]
This one thing I am uncertain on and that is the odd request of the owner specifically asking me I would pick up all of the 7 foot 2 x 4’s for which are to be used for the walls. Isn’t the number (7) indicative of divinity? The seven foot boards must surely be a divine reference to—and Signature of the Lord. Why else would this part of the dream be so memorable and outstanding? What are the chances that the number or measurement of ‘seven’ is the length of the boards and height of the walls and that the owner essentially said that anything longer than seven feet would be a waste of height as nothing was going to be stacked above 4 or 5 feet. This is much like the Lord in that He doesn’t follow the norms, patterns, and traditions of man. If He says that an eight foot ceiling is a waste of material, I believe I’d have to agree until an NBA center puts an application in for night stocker.
But whatever the significance of this building, the owner already has much of the material ready to build it, as I myself unloaded and stacked some of the material myself. My biggest concern is that the owner asked me if I would pick up the 7 foot boards and I did not say yes. I did not offer to drive his truck, though I actually did not think about asking this. My singularly focused thought was how I would get a substantial number of 7 foot, 2 x 4′ in my old, Honda Accord. This is a part of the dream that concerns me and I will have to search this one out to see if I have missed an opportunity to serve the Lord. This may just be the case.
In conclusion, I believe this dream is very relevant and pertinent to the urgency of the day in regard to the soon return of Yeshua-Lord Jesus. If you have read this far, I want to thank you for staying with this rather long story until the end. I hope the Lord will bless you more abundantly because of your persistence and patience.
As I continue to study and relate to this material, I hope that I will be adding to this as I receive further understanding. For now, it seems like quite a lot to absorb in relation to all of the characters that were represented in the dream.
I hope you are one who is stocking up on dried beans, rice, and flour and oil for the coming tribulation. It is only by the truth, the oil for the lamps, that we will always have the paths lit as we walk through the valley of the shadow death—the tribulation.
God be with you brothers and sisters. God be with you indeed.
With the love of Christ, Amen.

The top shelf where the large, institutional size cans were located represent rank, authority, and power. Since the institutional-size cans were corrupted, this indicates that in these last days, the top-level personnel in most entities will also be corrupted. Secondly, the top shelf represents the designed plan of God in blessing the institutions with this position of responsibility, though they would defile it.
Bean “after-effects” represent our flesh’s natural aversion to the Word of God, especially the subjection of our bodies to the confines (safety) of holiness and obedience.
Matthew 25:1-13 KJV
“Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom. 2 And five of them were wise, and five were foolish. 3 They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them: 4 But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps. 5 While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept. 6 And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him. 7 Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps. 8 And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out. 9 But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves. 10 And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut. 11 Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us. 12 But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not. 13 Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.” – Mat 25:1-13 KJV
Amos 8:11-14 NLT
“The time is surely coming,” says the Sovereign LORD, “when I will send a famine on the land– not a famine of bread or water but of hearing the words of the LORD. 12 People will stagger from sea to sea and wander from border to border searching for the word of the LORD, but they will not find it. 13 Beautiful girls and strong young men will grow faint in that day, thirsting for the LORD’s word. 14 And those who swear by the shameful idols of Samaria– who take oaths in the name of the god of Dan and make vows in the name of the god of Beersheba — they will all fall down, never to rise again.” – Amo 8:11-14 NLT
I had a very vivid and memorable dream last night (2/10/13) about being in a discount supermarket. As I was browsing the aisles, a gentlemen came by and conveyed to me that he was looking for some baked beans to serve to a gathering of people. A particular brand of baked beans soon came to mind and I began looking at the shelves that contained canned beans of different varieties and quantities.
I looked on the top shelf and saw the large, institutional-sized cans that had baked beans in them. These cans were very similar to 1 gallon paint cans in that on the top there was a removal tin lid that could be popped out to open the can. The odd thing though was, that all of the large cans seemed very old, somewhat dirty and dusty, and even rusted in some instances. Several of these large cans that had the removable lid were not sealed completely, as if over time the lids had become ill-fitted and worked loose.
I then looked into one of the cans to view the contents and at the top or surface was what appeared to be an inch or two of oil above the beans below. The beans appeared perfectly fine and seemed no different from a can of kidney beans one might open fresh from the grocery today. I pushed the lid down tight and thought that these large cans of beans might be okay but then I changed my mind and told the gentleman that he ought not to serve these because the quality and safety could not be determined assuredly. He agreed and went on to look for something else that might work.
Though I was disheartened that all of these large, institutional-sized canned beans including baked beans, white beans, and brown (pinto) beans were probably going to have to be discarded, I continued to browse the nearby aisles for a good choice as well. As I moved on down toward the end of the aisle, I saw a small stack of the 15 ounce, no. 2-size can of beans in full-case, cardboard flats. I recognized the name as being a quality brand but the label was not something I had seen before. These beans, in 24 cans per case, were a special production of beans with a unique blend of seasonings. The labels were kind of light, creamed color with a fancy, dark, nearly black lettering that conveyed a sense of quality, originality, and unique flavor that—to me—made them desirable. I immediately decided to purchase as many of these full-case allotments of beans as I could afford. Thankfully—or regrettably—there were only a few cases left which was all I could afford, anyway. But I did take all of these that I could find and put them in my shopping cart.
As I continued shopping the area, a nice couple came by pushing a shopping cart and I saw the woman take an odd-looking package from the bean shelf several shelves down from the top shelf. The package looked somewhat like a plain-white cereal box only a bit thinner and had attached to it on the outside, a packaged of assorted or mixed beans which included split pea, navy, pinto, lima, garbonzo, kidney, and many other varieties that I wasn’t familiar with. This very friendly lady seemed to know just what she was looking for and must have been a regular shopper of beans at this store. As she shared with me briefly her cooking knowledge, her husband behind her quietly leaned with his elbows resting on the cart handle.
As they moved on, I glanced back at the shelf and saw that there were only a few of these odd combo packs of mixed beans left and I immediately grabbed what was left and put them in my shopping cart. I was curious what was in the plain white box that the package of mixed beans was attached to and I was able to open the box just at the corner and saw what looked like a small onion or possibly a garlic pod. I then determined that the box contained all sorts of spices such as dried peppers, bay leaves, root spices, cinnamon sticks, cloves, garlic, and seeds such as celery, sesame, barley, sunflower, and mustard seed.
As I continued on happy that I had found these great products, the gentleman that was looking for the baked beans came by with a shopping cart containing several full cases of the regular-sized cans of baked beans. He seemed very pleased that he found what he was looking for and I was glad for him as well because the brand of baked beans he had found was the same brand as I had found with only a slightly different label. I felt very confident that the baked beans this gentleman was going to serve to his guest would go over very well and receive noticeable compliments.
Soon, I found myself near the checkout lanes and had a strange encounter with a young, male, clerk. This young man was rude and sarcastic and seemed to be mocking me in a personal way as if he’d been told something about me. I don’t remember responding to him in any way and continued on to the check-out lane.
As I entered the check-out lane, I was met by what I assumed to be the owner of the store running the cash register. This somewhat older, very kind gentleman greeted me graciously and made a subtle remark about the young clerk, as if he was aware of this boy’s issue. The owner’s kind eyes seemed quite sure of himself and gave me a sense of peace to just dismiss the incident as nothing more than ignorance; that the young boy did not—or perhaps could or would not—understand.
As I finished my transaction with this kind gentlemen at the checkout lane, he began asking me about a construction project he was working on. He was building a small storage building for the supermarket to store empty soda-pop bottles and other things in. He asked me about a few materials and what type of trailer he would need to have to haul these materials with. We agreed that a 16 foot steel trailer with steel-grid sides would be best to keep anything from falling out.
Toward the end of our conversation, he made a strange request to me and asked me if I could pick up all of the 7 foot boards or 2 x 4’s. I found out that the seven-foot boards were for the side-wall studs and questioned him about the height. He explained to me that the building didn’t need to be ‘that’ tall as the soda-pop bottle cases could only be stacked about chest-height only. I thought, well that makes perfect sense and did not belabor the point. I then told him I would pick up the 7 foot boards but then realized that I really didn’t have an adequate vehicle to pick these boards up with. I told him I didn’t have a truck and he said he would pick the boards up with the trailer.
Shortly thereafter, I found my self unloading and stacking construction material which is the conclusion of the my recollection of the dream.
