WORD & DREAM “THE LION UNLEASHED” January 13, 2020

So, Sunday God spoke to me that someone in the church was about to give a prophetic word and it was someone you would least suspect of having the ability, someone who has never heard from God like that before.  So, I shared that with the church and a young man named Scott approached me and he shared with me a dream he had Saturday night.  I may need some help interpreting this one, but I know it’s definitely God.  In the dream he said he saw me at church with a huge powerful lion to my right, but it was on a chain and large collar.  To my left were three small babies.  He said he was terrified and told me how you can have a huge ferocious lion next to three small babies.  I told him, don’t worry, the babies were marked as I had put sticky notes on their backs and that they were protected.  I then reached over and took the chain and collar off the lion and released him into the church.  He ran out of the sanctuary in fear and shut the doors behind him, but he heard the crowd screaming and yelling as the Lion was unleashed into the church.  Then he woke up shaking.

DREAM “STEALTH BOAT TEAMS TO SAVE THE LOST” January 19, 2020

I had a night of several smaller multi-dreams that at first, I felt were not making much sense but as I woke up this morning God began to speak to me about each one and how they all fit together like a puzzle pieces that made a full picture.

The call

In this dream it became increasingly aware of a call to rescue many who were trapped, they had been cut off by the enemy and in imprisoned on an island and separated by a great water divide.  This water was very rough and treacherous to navigate, and it took special boats that I saw like quick army green boats that we had to purchase the pieces and assemble the parts to get them working.  The boats all needed a hull, a motor and a pilot and those to help reach out and load the people onto the boat.  They were designed as stealth raiding type boats that were to make many runs into the enemy’s territory to save those who were trapped and enslaved.  I felt a sense of urgency in getting this mission off the ground and into action as time was running out, I felt the urgency  in the air that weighed on people like a heavy burden, it wrenched their hearts as they began to feel the great loss that was coming to many if they did not act now.

The weapon

I saw a great weapon that was being assembled by God’s people at the divine direction of the Holy Spirit.  No one person had all the parts, many different people who had been equipped for a purpose of this weapon would each bring the piece that they had been carrying for years and would surrender it to the master bomb maker and it would be assembled together to make one large bomb.  This bomb was meant to cause major damage into the enemy’s territory and distract him so that the boat people could make the rescue runs.  This weapon had many components and once assembled it was of the power of an atomic / nuclear bomb.

Wings of stealth

As the stage was set for the bomb and the boats were assembled, I heard God say I will give you wings of stealth, the ability to fly into and out of the enemy’s territory so swiftly and so quickly that you would not even be detected until it was too late.  This was a divine pane of attack that was being given directly from the war room of heaven.  It was a mantle of anointing on those boat teams like clearly see through wings attached to the boats side.

The price

In this dream, it was a picture of the many parts that must come together to build the boats and assemble them.  Each boat came at price.  Each component came at a price that could be purchased with a ticket.  I saw one man who had a boat hull but no motor, I saw another who had a motor but no boat hull.  I saw other boats that were assembled but with not captain or pilot.  In the dream that were a a high price to be paid for each part.  One man who had a boat went to a woman to ask her for a ticket in she had been carrying for years, the ticket was good for one free engine to the boat.  As she was approached, I could tell the man and the woman knew each other but had not talked for some time.  As he asked her for help, she dug in her purse and found some tickets that had been unused in her purse.  She had many tickets, but one in particular was for a boat engine.  As she looked at it and she knew it was of great worth, but it also had an expiration date on it that was only good for 5 more days.  She looked at it and decided to yield it to the boat builder to be used for this coming mission.  This ticket was given to her from heaven and she possessed the ability to help complete the boat build for many years but was holding on to it like many tickets in her purse because they all came with a great price and it was a decision she had to make to release the ticket to others or she could of just held onto them but they would eventually become void.

The attacks

In this dream there were counter attacks that were launched against the church in an attempt to stop God people from being a part of the team, to subdue them from giving the part they carried so that the mission would be restricted or even fail.

(smoke chaser) - The first attack I remember was the chasing the smoke as to find the fire.  Some people would begin to see smoke in places of a home that was not there.  They would convince others that there was a fire in the home and would urge them to follow the smoke.  I found myself on this mission as I left, he others and began to even see the smoke at times as I hunted it through the large house.  I eventually ended up in the upstairs area like an attack space.  The more I searched the smaller the spaces became.  I tore apart every area I could think the fire could be, I was hunting down the fire with great focus.  Finally, I became trapped in the smallest of spaces and then the door shut on me.  I realized there was no fire, only the appearances of a fire.  Now I was cut off from the rest of the team, I fought so hard to get free, but the enemy guarded the door and kept me cut off and hidden.  No one could seem to find me, and I was so upset that I had fallen for this trap.  I was even upset at others for leading me into this wild goose chase as it took me from my post, it pulled me away from what I should have been focusing on and occupied all my focus, energy and time only to be led to a dead end.

(Falling Asleep) – In this dream, I became very tired, I just wanted to lay down and go to sleep, but it became more than that, I wanted to sleep so deeply that I did wake up anymore.  I become so drained of life that I just kept laying down on my own bed and would just stay asleep. Many would come into the room and try to wake me up, but I would resist them and just lay back down.  It was if I laid down and slowly drifted off to death.

(Taking off the glasses – Losing Vision) – This was tied with the falling asleep dream.  As I would try to sleep, I could fall asleep unless I took off my glasses, I tried to pull them off, but it was as God would put them back on.  No matter how hard I pulled them off or how fast, they were right back on my head.  I knew that if I removed them, I would no longer have to see clearly and could drift off to sleep better. 

(Custom Sin) – I was coming under attack in a very systematic way.  The enemy kept dispatching different women to me that had one goal, to seduce me from my wife, to separate me from her and destroy my marriage.  I saw that these women were not even real.  One by one the attacks came.  One would try and fail, but then the enemy would send another with altered looks, from dark hair, to blonde, different body types as he was searching for the right bait that I would eventually take. They were vey persistent and the only way I could keep from falling prey to these was to never be alone.  The only help I had from resisting these fully was keeping people around me in accountability so they too would help me fight the temptations.

Summary

In all these different parts, it has one common thread of truth.  It is Unity that brings the parts together and it is also Dis-Unity that will tear apart the team and hinder the mission.  It is the price we are willing to pay, are we willing to hand over our tickets when asked, or will we hoard them until they become worthless.  Tickets are only good if redeemed.  Will we succumb to the attacks the enemy has launched against us or will we stand together and help protect one another?  We will all hear the call and respond, or will we separate ourselves and go to sleep?  If the enemy can get you alone, separate you from the others he will have you.  All these parts only work as we work together and play our part that we have been created for.

As we had our church service today, God was speaking through several different people many words in part but with them all they made a whole word.    People began in the spirit to sing in unison melodies from heaven and then these words began to flow.

The resounding words were:

God is bringing a season of consolidation and cohesion to the church.  At first that one stunned me as I have heard it many times in the business world and think of it negatively but let’s look at the definition:

The action or process of making something stronger or more solid.  "the permanent consolidation of peace" the action or process of combining a number of things into a single more effective or coherent whole.

The next ”C” word we hear was coagulation:

The action or process of a liquid, especially blood, changing to a solid or semi-solid state.  The ability of the wounded to now stop the hemorrhaging / bleeding.

And then God gave us two images from two other sources, one was a picture of many silos full of grain being poured into one giant silo that was now being made a never ending source of outpouring that was far greater than all the smaller sources combined.  The second and last picture given was a sheave of wheat that was bound together bay a large leather belt so that it would now stand upright together.

Even in our offering today the man selected to give it made a statement of many parts coming together to make one large offering.  It was a wonderful display today of the church being the church and speaking prophetically from many parts to paint one large picture from heaven.

So what is God saying to the Church, a revival of Unity is coming, the many parts that have remained separate are going to begin to come together for the greater good of the Kingdom.  Many will finally agree to lay down all they have and pay the price for the freedom of others.

 

DREAM “BREAKTHROUGH IS COMING” February 2, 2020

In a dream last night, I found myself being sentenced to jail, at least in my mind it’s what it felt like.  I spent much time and energy trying to figure out how to escape this prison complex, I even had others in my group wanting to escape.  I had an elaborate plane on how I was going to escape so I could be with Amy and the kids, I was even looking for another identity that I could assume so that I would not be found.  In my heart I heard a voice that said if you will just submit to this assignment and cooperate with the main guard of this assignment and lay down my plan of escape that the assignment would be fulfilled much quicker.  I began to give over all my secret plans of escape to the main guard and they began to work with me in counsel to not only put me in the position that I needed to be in but the others who were following me would also submit and take ahold of this assignment.  I then saw a brief vision of what my life would be if I did escape, I would be on the run for the rest of my life finding no peace, financially barren.  I then heard that this assignment was of the utmost importance as the completion of this assignment would be the catalyst that would propel us to all the other many assignments that lay before us in the future.  But to fail to take ahold of this assignment cancelled out all the other assignments in my future.  I feel God was revealing to my feelings and emotions of how I have been looking at this current assignment we are in at the Overflow.  My flesh at times can look at it as very constraining, like being held in confinement, separated from family and loved ones, but actually the best way was to submit through the process and see it as a current assignment not a jail sentence.  I heard if you submit, the struggle will be over in a year, then breakthrough would come.

 

VISION “MANY BOXES” February 2, 2020

Amy had a vision this morning that she found herself standing in a beautiful very large house with an elaborate fireplace in the room, but she could not reach the fireplace due to many boxes that were piled up in the room.  God spoke to her that the fireplace was all the fulfillment of the Promises God has for her and all the things she has prayed for as they were already in the room and that the room was Amy.  God spoke to her and said that she was going to have to unpack the boxes and remove the clutter that was piled up but that some would be easy to unpack but others very painful and her flesh would fight to keep them in place.  But that she would one day soon be sitting at the fireplace which was all the fullness of her giftings and callings.

DREAM “DON’T WASTE TIME BUILDING WHAT WILL BE IN THE WAY” February 28, 2020

In the dream I was standing with a group of workers but the only two I recognized was Doug and Larry.  They were working very hard on a very nice block and stucco wall.  It was about 7 feet tall, with columns, they were finishing up the stucco and the tops of the columns and as they were about to finish, I said to them, I’m sorry you spent all that time building that wall, but I hate to tell you its coming down.  All of a sudden small construction bob cats with hooks on them ran into the wall and pulled it down to nothing, then cleared it out.  God was expanding our property and the wall was in the middle now and had to come down.  The scene then shifted to a huge flurry of activity, I saw large 5th wheel RV’s and travel trailers being backed in, I now had a large white F-350 dually truck backed up to one.  We were in a season of preparing the RVs for use, remodeling them, new carpet, appliances, everything it needed to be functional as we were preparing to be a base station for launching and releasing mission that were very mobile.  It was kinds like that scene in Money pit, when they all show up to remodel and all the vehicles are invading every space of the property.

 

DREAM “WATCH OUT FOR THE NINJAS” March 1, 2020

I was in a church meeting at the Overflow, when Pastor Kelly appeared in front of me with some concern that I could see on her face.  She said to me that she was worried about Pastor Tim as its been about 6 weeks since his return from Africa and things were crazy.  I was then moved in the dream to Freedom church in Viera and I saw Pastor Tim being very busy with multiple meetings back to back and I tried to speak with him but I felt I was just frustrating him further as he was so busy coordinating the multiple services.  I saw him complete one and was behind the scenes preparing for the second one to start.  I felt that things had become very busy with some great things happening, but it was also causing some frustrations with the rush of it all.  I stood and watch as a stairwell opened up leading to a dark basement area.  Out of it walk out two 5-foot-tall men that were dressed as ninjas from head to toe.  I could not even see their eyes, all dressed in black.  On their heads were these very thick stone like hats, they looked like turtle shells but were thick and looked way bigger than their heads.  I think the color of their hats were like a darkish green and black marbled like stone.  I watched them stretch their necks, arms and legs as a runner would do before a race. All of a sudden, they crouched down into a running position, lowered their head so as the turtle stone hat was facing forward and then took off in different directions.  They ran around the church between people standing next to each other.  People would be just barely touching arm to arm and they would run and ram between them causing them to pull apart suddenly.  I looked and saw some large stones about the size of a volleyball, I picked one up and struck one on the head and it cracked his turtle shell / stone hat.  I did it again and it caused more damage, and then a third time and it broke the hat off its head.  They then shook their heads, and both ran back down into he basement from where they came from.  The stairs then disappeared.  I saw the aftermath of some relationships that were damaged in the attack.  I saw an older couple that were damaged and hurting from the hit.  I saw some people beginning to reach out to them and react to them, but I told them “Be very careful with them as they are like a oyster.  They are very calloused and rough on the outside but inside its soft with a beautiful pearl.  Handle them gently.

 

DREAM “THE SURGE IS ABOUT TO START” March 1, 2020

I remember seeing a large wooden desk, the main drawer was opened up and a lot of papers were in it with folders.  I could not see who was sitting at the desk, but I could see what He was doing.  He pulled out a folder, laid it onto the desk, opened it up and I him say, the Surge begins now and will build over the coming days and months.  This surge will build into a waive and that waive will last into several years.

**This was a foretelling dream of the coming COVID-19 pandemic.  A second dream came from another leader about seeing the church working on a large bridge over water and suddenly a pirate ship flying a death flag on it came through the waters slowly.  Out of fear many began to stop their work and some jumped off the bridge into the water and were having a hard time breathing and started to drown.  After seeing the pandemic events unfold, it became clear what this dream was warning the church about.

DREAM “COMING SOON TO OVERFLOW” March 7. 2020

I had a commercial like dream that played over and over in a loop, it was like an add you would see advertising monster jam.  I just kept seeing a video and hearing “Coming soon to the Overflow, Sings, wonders and healing, you don’t want to miss this next season!

 

DREAM “NEW SONG FOR THE PRODIGALS RETURN AND RESTORATION” March 7, 2020

I had a dream about Pastor Krista & Keith and their daughters.  Pastor Amy and I were them in a small home, Saw Pastor Krista become very moved by God and she begin to sing out of her heart and Spirit.  Out of her came a song from a mother whose heart was broken for a son that they lost many years ago.  It was so beautiful, so powerful, that it pierced our hearts and we all began to weep.  It was a beautiful song of hope and restoration for that lost child.  Suddenly outside the home I looked out the window and in the street, I saw a child abandoned in the in the gutter, he was unconscious and badly abused and beaten.  He appeared to have been attacked by a dog as he had scratches and puncture wounds on him.  Pastor Keith picked him up in his arms and we all began to love on this child.  The child came to and began to look at everyone with such glee and thankfulness as he was rescued.  He had been gone for so long he had forgotten his family but then remembered his remembered his father as he called him Rob.  The little boy told us his name was Danny.  It became aware to us that out of the heart cry of a broken mothers heart in the song you sang about your lost boy child, it brought this little boy to your door step and restored back what was taken.  As I touched him, I could see his into his spirit and I saw his spiritual house, it was a strong fortified stone structure, round, and as I looked inside his front door, I could see his mantle or calling if you will.  This is where it gets strange, as I saw him as a strong Jedi warrior fighting the enemy (Darth Vader) with his light saber.  He was called to be a warrior of light, he had strong purpose over his life, and it was your heart song that moved the hand of God to bring his purpose into fruition.

- Interpretation:  As I prayed on this today God showed me a spiritual image of family working together, each with their own part to bring back the prodigals.  I believe that God is about to bring a greater anointing on you to feel the hearts of the moms and dads who have lost their children to the world and then had to watch the world chew them up and spit them out.  Out of the grief a song arose out of singing intersession that brought hope and freedom to the parents, but it was also a song to call back the prodigal’s purpose.  In the dream the boy’s name was Danny which means “God has judged”.  The prodigals are walking in sin and with that sin judgement.  But the boy told me he remembered he had a father named Rob, the biblical meaning of this is “Bright and shining”.  The anointing is being poured out on pastors Krista and Keith and also onto us as we are in submission to them,  to call the prodigals out of judgment, get them healed up come to their senses and restored back to their bright and shining father.  You have that new anointing on you NOW says the Lord, to call them back, to love them and heal their wounds and then to train them up to be released to carry the light (saber) they comes from their Heavenly Father so they can take the battle back to the enemy and save even more!

DREAM “STEALTH BOAT TEAMS TO SAVE THE LOST” January 19, 2020

I had a night of several smaller multi-dreams that at first, I felt were not making much sense but as I woke up this morning God began to speak to me about each one and how they all fit together like a puzzle pieces that made a full picture.

The call

In this dream it became increasingly aware of a call to rescue many who were trapped, they had been cut off by the enemy and in imprisoned on an island and separated by a great water divide.  This water was very rough and treacherous to navigate, and it took special boats that I saw like quick army green boats that we had to purchase the pieces and assemble the parts to get them working.  The boats all needed a hull, a motor and a pilot and those to help reach out and load the people onto the boat.  They were designed as stealth raiding type boats that were to make many runs into the enemy’s territory to save those who were trapped and enslaved.  I felt a sense of urgency in getting this mission off the ground and into action as time was running out, I felt the urgency  in the air that weighed on people like a heavy burden, it wrenched their hearts as they began to feel the great loss that was coming to many if they did not act now.

The weapon

I saw a great weapon that was being assembled by God’s people at the divine direction of the Holy Spirit.  No one person had all the parts, many different people who had been equipped for a purpose of this weapon would each bring the piece that they had been carrying for years and would surrender it to the master bomb maker and it would be assembled together to make one large bomb.  This bomb was meant to cause major damage into the enemy’s territory and distract him so that the boat people could make the rescue runs.  This weapon had many components and once assembled it was of the power of an atomic / nuclear bomb.

The price

In this dream, it was a picture of the many parts that must come together to build the boats and assemble them.  Each boat came at price.  Each component came at a price that could be purchased with a ticket.  I saw one man who had a boat hull but no motor, I saw another who had a motor but no boat hull.  I saw other boats that were assembled but with not captain or pilot.  In the dream that were a a high price to be paid for each part.  One man who had a boat went to a woman to ask her for a ticket in she had been carrying for years, the ticket was good for one free engine to the boat.  As she was approached, I could tell the man and the woman knew each other but had not talked for some time.  As he asked her for help, she dug in her purse and found some tickets that had been unused in her purse.  She had many tickets, but one in particular was for a boat engine.  As she looked at it and she knew it was of great worth, but it also had an expiration date on it that was only good for 5 more days.  She looked at it and decided to yield it to the boat builder to be used for this coming mission.  This ticket was given to her from heaven and she possessed the ability to help complete the boat build for many years but was holding on to it like many tickets in her purse because they all came with a great price and it was a decision she had to make to release the ticket to others or she could of just held onto them but they would eventually become void.

In all these different parts, it has one common thread of truth.  It is Unity that brings the parts together and it is also Dis-Unity that will tear apart the team and hinder the mission.  It is the price we are willing to pay, are we willing to hand over our tickets when asked, or will we hoard them until they become worthless.  Tickets are only good if redeemed.  Will we succumb to the attacks the enemy has launched against us or will we stand together and help protect one another?  We will all hear the call and respond, or will we separate ourselves and go to sleep?  If the enemy can get you alone, separate you from the others he will have you.  All these parts only work as we work together and play our part that we have been created for.

The next ”C” word we hear was coagulation:

The action or process of a liquid, especially blood, changing to a solid or semi-solid state.  The ability of the wounded to now stop the hemorrhaging / bleeding.

And then God gave us two images from two other sources, one was a picture of many silos full of grain being poured into one giant silo that was now being made a never ending source of outpouring that was far greater than all the smaller sources combined.  The second and last picture given was a sheave of wheat that was bound together bay a large leather belt so that it would now stand upright together.

Even in our offering today the man selected to give it made a statement of many parts coming together to make one large offering.  It was a wonderful display today of the church being the church and speaking prophetically from many parts to paint one large picture from heaven.

So what is God saying to the Church, a revival of Unity is coming, the many parts that have remained separate are going to begin to come together for the greater good of the Kingdom.  Many will finally agree to lay down all they have and pay the price for the freedom of others.

 

DREAM “THEME PARK, NO LINES” February 2, 2020

How funny you use those descriptive words. I dreamed this morning that Erik and I were at a theme park and were at the front of a long line of people that stretched as far as you could see behind me. I felt guilty and that it was wrong for me to be there when we didn't have speed passes, but an attendant said it was OK. A voice came over the loudspeaker and said, “follow the arrows to find the prize". It felt like an exciting game. Suddenly hundreds of blue arrows came from the sky and began to land on the ground next to the line of people and went back in the other direction. I told Erik let's follow them, but he said he didn't hear the voice and didn't know what I was talking about. I was disappointed he wasn't paying attention and had him follow me. The arrows laid on the ground all in a line 4 or 5 arrows wide. As we followed them, obstacles and holes in the ground were between us and the next set of arrows. We had to figure out how to cross each one. The holes were rectangular and had burn marks on the sides of the walls as if land mines had blown up inside them. I thought they might have been made by lightning as well

DREAM “KEEP BUILDING THE BRIDGE, DON’T GET DISTRACTED” March 8, 2020

I am back at the amusement park that Erik and I visited a month ago in a dream, the one with the blue arrows that came from the sky. This time I am with a large group of people who are building a bridge to the amusement park. I didn't realize in the first dream that the park is on an island or a "key" and a highway connecting it to the mainland is to be built. (Funny how keys keep coming up, huh?) I am flying(?) back and forth between the pieces of the bridge being built and watching the progress. The giant pillar pieces are already placed in the water and just the road needs to be laid across them. I am caught up with the splendor of the park as it is bright and beautiful even from a great distance. I break away from staring at it to notice everyone has stopped building the bridge and are staring down at a pirate ship down below sailing directly beneath the bridge. Everyone wants to attack it and blow it out of the water, so it doesn't damage the bridge. I try to assure everyone it is not a threat and its weapons are futile against modern reinforced concrete. No one listens and everyone dives off the bridge from way high up down into the water. I am able to watch their trajectory as yellow arcs follow their movement down like a video game. I float down to the surface of the water. Their extreme speed falling so far causes them to all cut through the water and sink dangerously deep so that they can't get to the surface with the oxygen they have. I am able to point and drag a square around them like on a video game, grab them and lift them to the surface and they all are safe. The pirate ship has sailed by. I knew the ship felt it had succeeded, not in destroying the bridge, but getting the construction to halt.

 

DREAM “EXPOSURE WILL LEAD TO EXPANSION” May 5, 2020
I was in a dream where we were sitting on a bed, the room had nice walls, very nice ceiling and then suddenly it began to rain.  I noticed it started to drip from the ceiling indicating there was a leak, but it got worse and worse until the ceiling collapsed in on us, then the walls.  The once nice pretty drywall was gone and the wood structure under it was exposed.  It was eaten up by termites, wood rot and was not even functional anymore.  Then the window next to the bed fell out of the wall into the yard below.  Light filled the room; it was bright and blinding, but we could now see all the damage that had been hidden for years.  As I started to climb into the ceiling, I noticed another door that was hidden, and I stepped into it.  It opened into a large warehouse that led to another warehouse full of old antiques and old custom cars, trucks and tractors.  It had been stored up for years waiting to be rediscovered.  I looked and saw a small driveway leading up to the warehouse, but it was overgrown and no longer viewable form outside.  I heard God speaking to me that this is a season of exposure, His rain will begin to fall and it will wash away the pretty facade that are hiding the ruin, the rot and all that te enemy has been doing behind the scenes.  The windows will be opened and even removed so that they can not shut out the Light that is coming.  But this is not to destroy you, it is an exposure that will lead to expansion if you will allow it.  For I have many things stored up for you as a people for such a time as this.

 

DREAM “CORN AND BIC LIGHTERS“ May 8, 2020

In this dream I was standing in the sanctuary of the church.  It was filled with many new faces, many more ethnic faces that I have ever seen before.  There was an excitement in the air when suddenly I saw a large crate in the right side of the church. It was like one of those large air crates that are dropped from cargo planes to bring supplies to troops.  In the crate I saw piles of ears of corn.  I pulled them out and began throwing them to others in the room and passing them out.  I through one to a man in the back but he didn’t catch it, he it just hit the floor next to him and he had to make a decision to pick it up.  I told the people as they held the corn to count the kernels as that is the allotted souls you would bring into the Kingdom.  I said, this is the harvest that is about to come in!  I then looked in the box and I saw two more items, but one items disappeared as someone came and took them,  I heard a voice say, that item was not for you but for another church.  The third and last item I saw was new cases of Bic lighters.  I pulled out the cases and opened them up and passed them out.  Suddenly I saw people light them one by one and they became as the light, with a flame coming out of the tops of their heads.  I heard this is the Holy Fire that each person will need in this season of harvest.  I then saw the video screen on the wall turn off, and I saw the room , ceilings and wall turned into one large video screen and began to show forth the most beautiful display of colors I have ever seen.  It came from the ceiling and flowed down like liquid to the floor.  It collected like water on the floor and came up to our ankles.  The floor became like a thick blue shag carpet that was saturated with this electric blue water.  I saw people jumping in it, playing in it with great joy and I even saw some people on skates skating through the slushy blue water as they glided briskly over it.  Suddenly I was a person outside in the street, he was almost dead, passed out, deceased and wearing a large diaper as he had lost all control of himself. His face was half gone as he had no chin, no teeth, not tongue in which to even speak or cry out. We carried him into the church and people gathered around in a group and took him from our hands and said, we know what to do for this one. They began to change him, love him and healing began to come to him. 

 

DREAM “KING OR QUEEN?“ August 16, 2020

I had a really deep dream that played out more like a movie.  I would wake up several times from the dream and then go back to sleep and then re-enter the dream where I left off.

To set the stage in the dream it was a shot of Amy and I in our normal lives.  Very unassuming, just going about the daily business of our lives.  The scene moves to far away distant kingdom like old England.  In this Kingdom I become aware that it is a smaller kingdom as part of many kingdoms within on enlarge Kingdom.

As the scene shifts, I see the small kingdom with no king or queen, as the thrown had been vacant for many years, they had lost their lineage line and could not agree on who would be the true king or queen.  Suddenly the scene shifts to an old library that a worker is in and he discovers a hidden chamber within the library that has a an ancient manuscript covered in dust from decades of being hidden.  In the book the true lineage of the King and Queen are revealed.  A decree is sent out to discover the lineage.  This search led them to down my family tree to my father who had passed away, so they came to my house.  They approached us and begged us to come to the kingdom that they represented and that we were the true heirs to this kingdom.  We were very reluctant to go as he though it was some sort of scam.  The scen now shifts back to us now arriving in the Kingdom.

We were overwhelmed by those who greeted us.  Many were ringing the bells and announcing our arrival, but I became aware that there were some that felt we were not worthy to be in this position.  They separated Amy and I from one another and began to make custom clothing, robes, garments and dresses for us both as they prepared us and dressed us in these new beautiful outfits.  I noticed that one of my sleeves were sown too tight and I had to break my hand through the sleeves to allow my right hand to be able to function properly as I would shake hands with people.

As I looked down I was dressed in a very bright white long garment that was embroidered with ornate colors on the shoulders and chest in a very elaborate design but most of the design was done in black.  As Amy appeared, she was wearing a beautiful white and golden color dress.  We walked in and among the people as many greeted us but many still yet stayed at a distance as they could not figure us out and some even rejected us and our lineage. 

We were overwhelmed at the great honor and love and respect that was shown to us by the people, but the more and more we walked in and among the people, we got a sense that it was all for show, not real, not completely anyway.  We saw there was more to this kingdom that was hidden, and we were about to see that hidden very quickly.

At this point the scene moves to two different scenes.  One scene focuses on my and the other on Amy.  In the scene that follows Amy, I was allowed to see as events unfolded.

 

Amy was taken by a horse drawn carriage to the city center.  As she stepped out of the carriage, she was confronted by the true nature of the living conditions on those in the city.  Most of the people appeared to be normal, but she pushed passed the parade and crown of people to the back alleys and back streets.  There she saw young dirty children running in the shadows.  They would huddle in corners, hungry, abandoned, and orphaned.  As she watched them, she saw them trying to play music on broken instruments.  They dug through t he garbage and found old broken drums, violins with no strings and many other items that they tried desperately to play a song and to sing as their gifts would allow but to no avail they were not working properly and it distorted the sound.  He saw many other kids in the city that were dressed nicely who were able to go to schools to teach them to sing and play and to get an education but not these lost kids.  As she approached them, she was warned to not get near them as they would get her beautiful garments dirty.  But she refused to listen as she was moved with compassion and embraced the children.  She asked them, why are you not allowed to go to school and be like the other kids?  They responded, because we have no address in this kingdom, we are homeless and abandoned.  She immediately mandated a decree that they were to use her address at the castle in the Kingdom.  That they were to write that address down and make a permanent change of address. 

Now when word got back to the castle of all that she had done, there were those in the kingdom that embraced it as a wonderful change, while many other scoffed at it as this had never been done before and was not proper.

The scene now shifts back to me as I am in the castle.  I walked around and noticed that there were some people who were serving but were being forced to serve in areas they were not gifted in.  They were miserable and they begged my to place them where they were called to be, but the powers to be in the kingdom would not allow it and if they asked to be transferred they were sent to even a worse position.  I said, well am I not King?  She then pointed to another structure in the kingdom near the castle, this was a large tower that rose above the castle with many windows at the top all around to view and watch the kingdom.  I was moved in the direction of this tower and I entered.  I walked up all the stairs to the top, but as I entered and climbed the stairs I was strongly encouraged to not go in there and to not climb any higher.  They wanted to keep me out of there so I would not see what I was about to see.

As I got to the top, I entered a large room that had two main chambers.  The first was like the reception area. Here there were servants that acted more like prisoners and they were not allowed into the inner second chamber.  The wall separating them was made of thick glass with large doors.  I was looked at with disgust and was asked what are you doing here?  I said I a.m. the King I have a right to be, here don’t I?  They were not sure how to answer as they were torn with allegiance to me as king but as they looked over their shoulders to the other chamber, I could tell they were afraid to speak.  My attention was now drawn into the second chamber.  As I entered, I was greeted my many in the room as if I were nothing, that I had no real power here as this was the true hidden power of this kingdom.  As I looked, I saw three sections of people.  It was an open room with windows all around overlooking the kingdom from a high place.  The first section to my left was a large area of sectional couches with many sitting, talking, scheming, cutting deals.  They were in a party mode with drinks and cigars but they were bartering deals over parts of the kingdom.  To my right was a large table like a huge dining table but abnormally large.  This crowd was small than the other about half, there were men and women sitting at the table eating piles of food in a very disgusting manner.  It was like the scene from the Lord of the Rings where the steward of the house was eating chicken and items in a gross manner while the hobbit sang a song to him.  I saw these people eating greasy chicken and food to the point they had huge overflowing stomachs from the gluttony.  I reached out to shake their hand and it left a greasy residue on my hand.  I was then directed to the back wall as the people at the table were too busy eating to talk.

On this wall a large row of very elaborate chairs sat and upon them different men and women that were dressed in fine clothing, jewels and gold chains about their necks.  There was a ranking system there too as the one in the middle appeared to be the man in charge.  I spoke with them on behalf of those in the kingdom where were not serving as they were called or gifted to do and they laughed at me and sent out an order to make it even harder for those serving and moved them around to even more hurtful situations.  It was like they had full control of the kingdom, who came, who went, who was raised up and who was lowered.  They looked at me as if I was nothing, they laughed at me.  As I saw that I was not welcome, they said why don’t you just go back be king and let us take care of everything else.  As I left, I was infuriated, I realized that I was not truly King as I did not possess the power to change this kingdom.  Before I left a servant followed me out and privately got down on his knees and begged for forgiveness for how I was treated and that he was not part of them or for them, but was a slave to the current system and could do nothing.  With the combined chambers I saw, felt and smelled an awful aroma of corruption, pride, and gluttony.  I felt as if I was looking a depiction of what church had become, those who had used power, money and affluence to better themselves and to grow their own tower in the kingdom to serve them and to not serve the people of the kingdom.

As I left the tower, I could no longer look at the kingdom the same way.  I could no longer look at myself as a King if I had no power to truly be a King.  I decided it was time to rally those to me that truly wanted a free kingdom, a true Kingdom, a kingdom that was in alignment with the king of all kings in the kingdom.

The scene now shifted to me walking out to a large group in battle array.  There were two sides, those who chose to fight for freedom and those who were too afraid to fight the powers to be.  I announced to all those standing that before we could move forward any further we first had to set the captives of war free.  I called for the most notorious of prisoners of war to be brought out.

They brought out a large cage that was metal and glass, it was lowered out of a large building that housed many more like it and it was on wheels.  It was like a mobile cage and you could see the prisoner inside.  The one thing I noticed about the cage is that it was not a correct representation of who was indie.  They had constructed the cage in such a way to make him look like a monster.  They had distorted him in an action position like he was lunging forward to attack.  They had put fake arms over his real arms that were really long and carry with claws.  They did the dame with his feet and they put a mask over his face and a bit in his mouth so that when he talked, he sounded like a monster.  As I ordered hi to be released a set of keys were handed to me.  There were many keys on the ring, some metal some glass, some triangular some very square, some elaborate some simple.  I struggled at first as I did not know what key to use.  I tried a few but they did not work.  I would have people warn me don’t do it, he will kill you, he is vicious and so on.  For years the powers to be had spoken lies over this man and persecuted him because he chose to fight against them.  They painted such a horrible picture of the man that it brought fear to anyone who would try to set him free.  As I found the right key, it was one made of glass.  As I turned it would bend to the point I thought it may break, so I had to do it very slowly as the lock was seized up from years of being unused.  Suddenly it unlocked and the man was released form this horrible chamber.  His feet and hand were bloody, he could hardly stand, walk or even talk.  He was very angry and had grabbed a knife in his hand.  Even though he could not speak I could see in his eyes what he wanted.  Revenge.  He was so full of anger, contempt and hate for those who had imprisoned him, he was bent on revenge.  But I stopped him and said.  You have two choices, go get your revenged, or let it go and be part of this kingdom revolution that will not only pay back the powers to be but will also set many more free like you.  He stood contemplating and I said, if you chose revenge it will kill you.  Finally, after some contemplation, he dropped the knife, picked up a sword, armor and garment and joined the ranks of those where readying themselves for battle.

I felt in my heart I had to make a decision, to embrace this war, or just go back being a fake king.  To put the kingship on the line for something more than just myself, to be willing to lose it all for the freedom of those in the kingdom.

The scene closes and I wake up.

 

DREAM – “TRANSITION” August 2020

I heard in a dream as I was waking up the Lord speak to me.  “You need to prepare the people both Heart and Mind for the Transition that I a.m. about to bring.”

 

DREAM – “NEW BATTERY NEW FUEL TANK” September 2020

In the dream I found myself on a mission for two things.  A new deep cycle marine type battery and a new marine fuel tank.  I was obsessed in the dream to find the perfect ones.  In the dream I had a vision about seeing myself in front of a mirror.  I looked horrible, old, out of energy, sickly, I felt like I was dying.  I looked over and saw Amy on a stage ministering to a crowd.  She was full of energy, full of life, and looked refreshed. I then flashed back to the old man.  He said, “You can not keep up with where I a.m. needing to take you”  He showed me a large marine Battery and then showed me a new fuel tank.  He said you need both to get you where you need to go.”  He said but in the fuel tank, you need a special kind that will balance itself out when in rough seas.  It will stay balanced and will not shift the fuel too much to one side or the other.  As I looked the fuel tank was situated on a boat on rubber balancing mounts.  As I woke up God began to give me the interpretation.  It was both spiritual and physical.  It was time to get my body and my spirit retrofitted with the new deep cell batter and the special fuel tank.  I have owned many boats and the two most used items on it is the battery and the fuel tank.  If you have no depth of power or the ability to retain that power for long periods of time, you will fail.  A deep cycle battery is different form a regular car battery.  They are designed the be discharged and re-charged many times.  They are designed to give you a charge for far longer than a regular battery.  In a boat, you will general have two, three or even four batteries, there really is no limit other than space.  The fuel cell is also a limit on to how far you can go, how deep you can go on the ocean without needing to return to port.  The more fuel the farther you can go.  I have had boats with 5-gallon tanks and others with 250-gallon tanks.  Fuel tanks also carry a lot of weight.  If you hit a rough wave and get tossed to one side or the other, the fuel can shift in your tank to one side or the other cause you to be off balance and cause your direction / trajectory to shift.  Many fuel cells in boat tend to go bad due to corrosion of the salt water.  They eventually get holes in them to allow fuel out and to let water in thus eventually leading to the boat motor to fail and be destroyed.

DREAM – “EXPANSION” October 24, 2020

I had a dream where I saw two houses, older but very large.  I watched as both houses were picked up off their foundations on their small lots and picked up and carried to a new piece of land, a larger land.  On it was a new foundation already laid, but much work had to be done to fit the two large homes together upon their new foundation.  The foundation had to be altered to accommodate both homes.  A new basement access was also developed.  I saw at the tops of the foundation new large bolts that were attaching the homes to the foundation.  The main home was on the first floor but added to it was the second home that was the upper levels.  I saw our grand kids in the home sitting in highchairs laughing and playing with the lights and the doors they could reach.  As I opened up the door, I looked at them and they laughed as they were trying to get my attention to hang out with them and laugh.  I was very busy trying to watch the new foundation being laid and attached to the homes to all become one.  I think God was trying to tell me that I needed to enjoy the process and laugh a little.  God has been speaking to Amy and I about new things that God has been calling us to, but He has also been asking us to give some things up in the process.  I believed God is calling us to be one, fashioned together spiritually to see the differences in our callings but also to see how we fit together.  But in order for us to be expanded, we must be removed from our current foundations and shifted together to a new territory that will accommodate the expansion.  We too must also allow parts of our old home to be removed and then re-arranged for His greater purpose.  I am the lower levels, that’s the Apostolic and my is the upper levels, that is the Prophetic.

PROPHETIC WORD “GREAT EXPOSITION” November 10, 2020 
Prophetess Amy Mefford

In my prayer time this morning, the Holy Spirit spoke this loud and clear to me:
 “You are living in the moment of the great exposition. This is the biggest time of exposure this world/My creation has ever known! I Am exposing what the church collectively is made of what My people are made of, the hidden agendas and motives, the hidden sin. I am exposing defilement within the government from the local level to the federal, top to bottom. I have allowed and given much time for these things to be remedied in a collective and individual standpoint. I have warned and spoken through My Word and My Prophets. I have given ample time. Now the shaking begins. Be ready for what is to come! Be solid and steady in your faith! The proud will come toppling, the false humility exposed. The arrogant will be bought to their knees. BE READY! This will be a time of unrest like never before, but My children will be protected. Do not judge or condemn, do not operate in idle chatter. PRAY, LOVE AND BE MY HANDS AND FEET! Check your hearts, keep them pure. This is in My plan!”

DREAM – “WE ARE LOSING THE LOST” December 1, 2020

I had a very detailed dream that struck me so hard as it stirred up many emotions of some of my experiences that I had while serving in the US Navy.  The dream was a snapshot dissection of The Church (As a whole) and Pastors, Church Leaders and Church attenders.  I will do my best to explain parts of the dream as God gave me the interpretation immediately as I woke up.  This dream shook me to the core, and I was awakened by it was such a deep heartbreak and tears for the lost, and those that are injured in the body of Christ. 

Burned Out

This first part of the dream, God was revealing to me a thought process of many Christians as they attend church.  In the dream, I found myself in a different time, an awfully familiar time where Amy and I served in church ministry at a church in Kentucky.  As I awoke on a Sunday morning, I remember thinking the way I have thought many times when first starting to serve in church.  I was not a senior leader, but just a lay leader at that time in our lives.  I just felt tired and worn out from going to our church and decided that I would not go today as they wouldn’t miss me anyway.  I had a very lackadaisical attitude about serving in church as I didn’t see as what we were doing really made a difference.  I decided that I wanted to go to other churches and try them out as I needed something new, something different other than the norm.  I also felt a sense that I just wanted to blend in with the crowd and not be there to give but to just receive.  I felt like too much was expected of me and I no longer wanted to be busy doing but just wanted to attend like everyone else.  I was asked, don’t you think we should let them know we will not be coming, but I replied, who cares, they really won’t miss us.

Too Busy to fix what is broken

The dream now shifted, and I found myself change.  I was no longer the lackadaisical feeling Christian; I was now on a mission.  I received a fire alarm on my phone with a map that led me to a Pastor’s home that I have known.  I do not believe the dream was necessarily about the pastors but more of a symbol of their position.  I was concerned for them and their safety, so I went into their home.  Upon arrival, I entered through a door that was left wide open, but no one was home.  I walked through the house and I noticed their house was in dis-array.  I had a picture of who they were in my mind but the way they lived was nothing like who they portrayed themselves to be.  There was clutter, trash, dirty clothes, dishes, and things scattered from room to room.  As I entered the bedroom, the bed was unmade with dirty worn sheet laid bare, the blankets and pillows scattered at the foot of the bed and onto the floor.  Above their bed was a ceiling fan that was smoking and sparking and was about to break out in fire which would burn their entire house to the ground.  I saw them in my spirit as they left their house that morning for church.  They were in a hurried rush as they were running late, thy looked exhausted.  They smelled the smoke and as they walked out, they heard the fire alarm going off but they walked right past it as if they didn’t hear it or smell the smoke.  They left for church anyway as if they had grown use to the mess, the smoke, the smell and the alarm.  I knew I had to find them and warn them about what was about to happen to their home.  I was then transported in the dream to their church.  Upon arrival, I found a flurry of activity by them and the leaders as they prepared for church.  I found the wife as she seemed really busy and frustrated as she was running behind and was frustrated with people in the worship team and staff as she was trying to motivate them to get ready for the service.  I waved at her to get her attention and I asked, can I please share a word with you about your home, it is of great importance.  But she rebuked me and shut me down as I tried to warn her and snapped on me and said “I don’t have time for this, I have a service to prepare for” and then quickly turned her back on me and went about her business.  I got the sense that she knew there was a problem but was embarrassed to acknowledge it and that the best way she could cope with it was to just stay busy in the doing of church.

As I walked away from her puzzled, I then shifted my focus again and my feelings changed. 

Preoccupied with us

This next part of the dream was focused on Amy and me as a couple, but we were not ourselves.  The way I felt and the thoughts I felt were different than what we feel.  I believe we were just representing many couples in church life today.  Amy and I were there to attend the service, but we were running late, it was crowded, and we were concerned about finding a good seat.  We found ourselves separated by the crowd; we became frustrated with each other as we seemed to be unable to communicate effectively as our phones would not work.  The more we tried to communicate with each other, the more frustrated we would become.  We spent most of the service just trying to find each other and I noticed that we were were so per-occupied with us, where we sat, how we looked and looking at our phones the whole time we were in church, that our minds were not on God, worship or the church.  It was preoccupied with us, what we didn’t have, what we thought we needed.  We were more concerned about where we would sit physically and not on where we sat spiritually.  I remember being more concerned about how we looked together on the outside, than how we actually were on the inside. I remember being frustrated with the other people in the church as we did not see them as individuals, but as just an annoyance.  I feel like this part of the dream represents many couples in the church that are so per-occupied with the wrong things.  We were not in a place to serve as we barley had it together in our lives just to show up to church was all we could do.  We were not there to be focused on God; we were their as it was the thing to do.  It was the check in the block for the week that made us feel better about our lives.  Our lives were so busy, our minds and thoughts were so preoccupied with things that we could not focus on the service.  We ended up spending much of the service wondering around the church looking for each other and a place to sit, but never comfortable enough to settle down.

Not serving due to hurts, offenses, and weariness

The dream no shifts, as I am no longer a husband, but just an observer of the church.  I wondered around the church and saw many things that distressed me.  As I walked through the church, I could overhear peoples conversations and thoughts and I watched how they reacted to people that walked into the room.  I ran into another couple that I have known in the past. This couple are really great people and they served faithfully for may years but were aging as they moved into their 60’s.  I found them sitting at a table watching church happen, not actually serving anymore but there to be served.   They seemed to be satisfied with all that they had done over the years. Again, I do not believe it was about this couple but more of a representation of what I know about them.  I stood and watched them briefly and I could hear their thoughts as they made truth statements out of their hearts about themselves other people.  I heard them say “we have done enough, sacrificed enough, its now time for us to enjoy our life and do what we want.  It’s time to retire from serving others and serve ourselves for once.  We have done OUR part”.  This couple in real life had the perfect image, the perfect family, they were worship leaders.  They served for years faithfully and are great people.  Be there came a time that they stepped away from serving and retried to spend more time traveling and enjoying life.  I remember this couple as we took over a ministry reacted with great difficulty as we began to shake things up by way of the Holy Spirit.  They drew a line in the sand and said if we are going to become charismatic, then we are out.  Again, this a great couple, but they have grown accustomed to very controlled life and ministry. They spent their time serving in a box and would not do anything that made them uncomfortable.  The next thought I heard come out them was very ugly.  I saw them notice a family who came into the church that they knew form the past in another church or ministry.  I heard them say “Great, they are here, now we are going to have to find someplace else to sit and may even have to find another church.”  I felt their heart briefly and I they had a great frustration with these people as they had a run in in the past with them.  Something happened in ministry that caused them to see them differently.  They had no plans to try and make amends with them or forgive them.  They just wanted them out of their site.  They seemed to become very uneasy and again, were no longer paying attention to what was going on in the church service.  They focus was on their own feelings, their own desires and not on worshiping.

Judgmental attitude

Now the dream shifts again as I find myself in the café area where many gather to fellowship and drink coffee.  Again, this is not a church that I recognize, but it is a church.  I also do recognize many people from past churches that I have attended but there was a lot that I did not know.  As I walked into the café, I saw a family standing in suits and dresses as they were posing for a picture.  They were looking very well dressed and seemed to be happy.  I did not speak with this couple, but I could hear other people around the couple talking about them and the thoughts they were thinking about them.  These people stood around the family with smiles on their faces, but in their hearts, they thought many different ugly things.  I heard people think judgement in their heart towards them.  They said things like “they don’t have it all together like they act”.  This thought was not based in truth but based out of jealousy as their own family was not as happy as them.  I heard someone think “One of them is not even a Christian the son is a Mormon”.  They did not seem to have any love for him as they did nothing to reach out to him they did nothing to engage relation-ally to show him truth in love, but they just stayed in a place of judgement.  I heard another one think about another family “They only come here for the children’s church to drop off their kids”.  They seemed to have a per-disposed judgment on the family’s motives for being at the church.  And yet another thought “The younger one is only hear because he’s getting schooling for free”.  I was so saddened by the thoughts of the people.  They were so busy looking at other in judgment out of their own hurts, that the service continued on without them.  As I looked at them closer, through their own insecurities, they thought these things.  They were hurting, they were wounded, but instead of entering the service and focusing on God and His healing presence, they chose to cope by busying themselves with looking at the faults of others instead of addressing their own.  They chose to stay out of the service and stay on the fringes.

I don’t need your help, I got this alone

I was then moved to the parking lot area and the church appeared more like a large service auto repair shop.  I walked into the parking lot where I saw many people wandering around completely unaware that the service had begun.  They were smoking and talking, joking and laughing, they were standing next to their cars.  These people had shown up in their cars but did not seem to want help to make their cars and many of the cars were having mechanical issues, but instead of coming inside for help, they remained outside.  I got the feeling that they could get their cars fixed inside, but there were some that were under the hood of their cars working on them in the parking lot, they knew their car did not run right and they needed help, but decided to try and fix their cars themselves.  They just stayed in the parking lot.  One couple had even showed up in a truck pulling their own car that was not longer working.  They pulled it everywhere with them, but they left it on the trailer.  I noticed that the car had come untied from the trailer and was about to roll off, but they quickly jumped into action and tightened the straps to pull it back into position and then covered up the car with a tarp.  They were embarrassed that the car did not run, but instead of seeking help, they just got a truck and pulled their car to and from the church as if it ran fine.  They said it was a classic and they acted like it was in good running order, but they wanted to protect it as it was old and a valuable classic.  I remember seeing the car, it was a sporty red convertible two-seater made specifically for the couple, but they chose to pull it around with an old four door truck.  I believe this car was their purpose, their joy, their fulfillment, but it was broke, it needed repair, but they were too embarrassed to let anyone know they needed help.  They were so focused on not letting anyone near their car, that they remained isolated in the parking lot.

Not ready to help rescue the lost

This is when the dream shifted into a military mode.  I found myself back in the Navy on board a large grey ship.  I got the sense that it was a large hospital ship but was also a battleship.  I got the sense that we were at war, but I noticed it was tied up at the dock.  When at war, the ships that remain tied up are sitting ducks, and very vulnerable to being attacked.  If a ship is not moving, it can not be steered and it can not fight.  (Just look at what happened at Pearl Harbor).  I noticed that everyone was busy doing their job, when all of a sudden, the ship shook, and it was like an explosion just happened.  I heard saw smoke and fire and I knew that many were injured below deck and were cut off from help.  As I walked around the ship trying to make my way to where the explosion happened, I noted that everyone just went about their business as if nothing happened.  I was in shock, I was hurt that no one seemed to care.  I started to run towards the smoke to investigate what had happened.  I could see through a small port hole into the interior of the ship.  I could see the damage and the people that were hurt. I saw a pile of bodies, fellow shipmates that were piled up, crying, yelling, screaming for help.   I saw their faces as they reached out their hands towards me begging me to save them.  Many others saw them too through other small port holes, but chose to turn their heads and walk away as they felt powerless and I even heard them think to themselves “What an I do, there’s nothing I can do.”.  These people were trapped, and fire was all around them consuming them. 

Too much debris is blocking the path of rescue

I tried to get to them but the pathway to rescue them was blocked with large old comfy couches and large wooden roll top desks.  These looked to be from the 70’s as the couches were like the old ones, we would take naps on at our grandparents’ home.  They were stacked up and packed in tight, I began pulling the couches and desks out of the way but the more I pulled out, the more there would appear in its place.  It seemed endless and I seemed unable to do it alone.  I found myself on a large elevator like the ones we had on an aircraft carrier I served in the USS Saratoga.  The elevator was there to lift heavy plans to the surface from the hangar bays so they could be launched on flight missions.  But the debris, the couches and the desks were blocking the way to save them.  Also, amongst the debris I saw burned out metal rolling serving trays that ere charged black.  They seemed to come from the source of the explosion that originated in the kitchen area.  This area was where the crew of the ship would eat together, called the galley.  Someone had made a mistake in the kitchen and through negligence caused the large explosion.  This shocked me as this damage was not caused by the enemy, it was caused by someone just going through the motions lackadaisically. When on the ship for 6 months at a time, it is easy to get so caught up in the routine, that you operate on autopilot. When doing this, we become complacent with what we are doing and forget how dangerous it is and become negligent in how were do our jobs.  This opens us up to cause great collateral damage at times, not on purpose, but none the less just as deadly.  Every 6-month cruise I took in the Navy, we would lose up to 5 or 6 people even though we were not at war most times.

Serving Carts

Let us take a break from the dream to address why God showed me the serving cart, the couches and the desks.  The serving trays are used to serve food to many people, they were mobile and able to carry many shelves loaded with food to the starving.  But they were now out of action due to being burned.  They could no longer serve or be utilized in the manner they were created for.  They could no longer feed the hungry.  I believe this was damaged at our church in the beginning, not because of the ability to feed, but we didn’t like those whom we were feeding.  They were the least of these, the down and out, the homeless, the needy.  They didn’t always smell nice, act nice or look nice.  In our church’s history, this was a focus but it came to an end and blew up overnight as a small group of leaders grew tired of serving them and didn’t want that image in the church any longer.  They grew uncomfortable with the mess and the smell, they no longer wanted to be a church for the “have nots” but a church for the “haves”. You see they focused on the haves of the church as they were the ones with the money, they smelled nice, looked nice and spoke politely. 

 

The Comfy Couches

The comfy couches were the old ones you would find at your grandparents’ home, or your uncles house.  They were old and out of date but very comfortable.  They were the kind that as soon as you ate a big meal at a family get together, you just laid back in that old couch and would fall into a drifting slumber.  I used to see these couches loaded with my uncles with the ball game playing in the background but everyone was snoring and not really watching the game, but if you tried to turn it off, they would notice.  I feel like God is speaking to our way of life.  We have grown so lazy in our approach to ministry and seeking the lost, the hurting and the hungry.  We have grown accustomed to getting what we need to eat and then taking a nap and sleeping the day away.  It has become a typical Sunday where we go to church in the masses, leave unchanged and descend like locusts to the restaurants and then make our way home as that old comfy couch is called, beckoning us to come lay back and take a much deserved nap.  I feel like we have been doing this both physically and spiritually and in the American church for decades.  We have been doing our thing all week, we carve out a few hours on a Sunday to get the check in the block and then we go and hear a sermon, only to quickly forget what we heard even before we have left the parking lot.

The Heavy Roll Top Desk

The old oak heavy roll top desks have a much different meaning to me.  It represents office of authority; it represents man’s knowledge and study.  It can be opened or even closed by our own power and ability.  It is a status symbol of importance.  In many dreams that God has given me, I have always seen God sitting at an open flat desk with his papers and folders laid out.  He is a God who does things for all to see.  He doesn’t shut them up and hide what he is doing.  The previous leadership of our church was a very secret type guy, with lots of hidden secrets.  But in time they all came out.  The desk to me also represents Prayer and intercession.  I know what you are thinking, how can that remind you of prayer.  Well let me explain.  When Amy and I took over the church over 6 years ago, we had to face a battel with the previous pastor as he transitioned out.  He had a large office to the back of the church, and we noticed that there was no prayer room in the church, but God was leading us to get the church back to a place of prayer.  We tried to pray in the sanctuary, but they were too busy practicing for worship we would just annoy them as we had some that were very passionate.  We went through a great battle of exposure that God did for us that cleared the way for us to have a prayer room.  We decided that once the previous pastor moved out his office furniture we could then make it a prayer room as we had no need of an office and a door with our name in it, we desired a place for prayer more.  I won’t go into great detail about the transition, but I can tell you there was a difference in pastoral styles.  One was looking at ministry as a business and the other was looking at it as a calling.  Slowly the transition took place over many months and the old pastor managed to move out all his items from the office, except for an old oak roll top desk.  He refused for weeks that led to months to get it moved out, so it just stayed in the room making it difficult to utilize the room as a pray as a team.  It was left there with strict instructions that we could not touch it, or we would be sued if there was one scratch put on it.  It became very clear that it was not about the desk but about the control of leaving the desk in our way so we could not move forward with prayer in the room.  This was a frustrating time for us that eventually came to an end once we were able to get it out of the church. 

I think what God is speaking in the dream about the desk is that we have allowed too much of our own control and agendas to get in the way of helping rescue the lost.  I have been in some large churches and seen many very elaborate large pastoral offices that were stately and awe inspiring, and the prayer room, if they even had one, was usually an afterthought space.  I have even seen them to just use the storage space. The problem of many churches is less to do about the people and more to do with the leaders.  All things flow from the top down, blessing as well as curses.  Too many churches and leaders about running a church as a business or even make it a place to promote their own financial stability and not about the Father’s business any longer.  They have become heavy with the workings of man and are standing in the way rallying a church to save the lost.  Prayer has to be the first response to any rescue, but before prayer can be affected, we must first clean out the prayer room.

Are we really ready for the Harvest we have been praying for?

I then focused my attention on the crew.  I was so angered that they just stood by and witnessed this great explosion, they could see the men and woman that were trapped through small windows, dead, dying and burning.  But, since they were not organized and they were confused and they felt unequipped to do anything, they decided not to do anything.  As I looked around at the crew, I could hear their excuses some out loud and some through thoughts.  I saw many ranks and positions and also just as many reactions to what happened.  I saw many pretend to not see the damage done nor the hurt and dying people in the flames.  They would walk by shielding their eyes as they would think “If I don’t see it, I don’t have to do anything about it” I saw several officers talking to each other about having a meeting to discuss what to do as they hid behind the rules and regulations (Religion) of doing church that they would not be moved beyond the lines of acceptability out of fear.  They hid behind this reasoning to excuse their own lack of action to help.  I ran around the ship and gathered a small crew to help in efforts to save our fellow shipmates.  As we began to pull the couches, burn food trays and desks out, they just seemed to be more and more stacked up.  We were trying to throw the couches and desks off the elevator about a 10-foot drop but some of the officers stood in the way.  They refused to even move out of the way to make room for the debris to be removed.  One looked up at me and said, “you cannot tell me what to do I out rank you; you will not tell me to do anything.”  I replied, “if you don’t move, I will drop this on your head, you have been warned.”  This person would not help and would not help due to pride.  As we cleaned the debris from the hallway, we noticed it would pile up at the bottom under the elevator causing the elevator to not function property. We again asked many fellow shipmates on the ground to help clear out the trash and debris, but many just stood there and looked at us in a very nice neatly pressed uniform.  They felt they were above getting their hands dirty, they felt it was beneath them even though ironically it was physically above them.  They had become so accustomed to a higher rank and position and they were so careful as to not get their uniform dirty or tarnish their golden oak leaves on their collars, or mess up all their medals and ribbons on their chest.  They were so consumed by their uniform and position, that they remained unmoved to help and just stood in the way of those where were trying to help.

Harvesting the Lost is dirty work

In the dream we finally made a way into the room with those that were injured, burned and being burned.  The elevator still did not function properly because of the debris so we had to climb up to another level and try to lower down the hurt and injured.  I remember feeling so upset, so hurt, so angry that I had to fight my own shipmates to get this rescue efforts underway.  I remember yelling, crying and even cursing at them to get them motivate to move and put forth a hand to save those injured and, burned and burning.  When a small group of us finally reached them, the room was full of death, fear, and a smell of unimaginable level than many could not go in as they lost their stomachs and refused to enter the room as they held their mouths and noses and retreated back outside the ship.  I saw two try to pick up a person who was badly burned and their skin came off in their hands causing them to vomit in disgust. They wined and complained so loudly that it caused all hope of rescue to leave the room as the others that were injured heard their words of disdain for their condition.  Several to the injured were covered in feces and urine, they were naked mostly and some only had partial clothing on them while others only a sheet to partially cover them.  As they began to try and lower some of them down to the elevator platform, they dropped some of them on their heads causing further damage to them and even killing them as they could not stand the stench or even look at their naked bodies covered in the feces and urine.  They did not want to touch them as they felt it would get on them and their clothes.  They looked at them as if diseased, filthy, and contagious.  I became so angry that all the effort we spent to get to them and now we were dropping them and causing more damage to them because we were not accustomed to the odor we were smelling or the sights they were seeing.  I heard them say, “This is not my job, this is not what I signed up for” or even “It’s too late, they are too far gone.”

In the dream I was so broken, so hurt that we were completely unprepared for what just happened.  It took us by surprise and many people acted differently, but it all corporately led to us loosing many of our shipmates being lost for good.  I heard many say, “It’s too late and we might as well just let them go as there is no way we can save them”.  It seemed it was easier to turn our heads and let it happen or pretend it did not happen all together. 

Our church once had this mantle of saving the lost and feeding the least of these in the building we are currently in now.  But when we took this church assignment the church had moved to a smaller building across town to hide from the down and out, the least of these, the homeless and hungry that were beginning to come through the door.  It made the church uncomfortable as they did not want to mess up their Sunday clothes or their freshly laid carpets and blemish less new chairs.

I’ve seen this play out in real life events

As the dream moved on, it brought me to a very painful time in my life as I served aboard the USS Saratoga in the Mediterranean Sea in 1992.  I the dream I was allowed to re-live that night.  We were on the aircraft carrier and since we were not in a time of war, we spent most of our time preparing for war by playing war games with our allies.  We split many ships in two teams, a brown team and a green team.  We played these games with our allies to include Turkish, Greek, French and Spanish ships.  We pretended to be at war, we played a game of hunt or be hunted.  At about 2 a.m. I was working in the Intelligence Center of the ship and we located three Turkish ships approximately 2.5 nautical miles from our position.  We passed on that information as they were our enemies for this war game we were playing.  As they passed on the information to Fire Control, they targeted the ships and lined up 6 Seas Sparrow missiles in position to strike.  This was all supposed to be a simulation, it was a war game, just an exercise.  We had all been out on a long 6-month deployment and our hearts and minds were not on the exercise or mission at hand.  We were all thinking about pulling onto a port of call on a small Spanish Island full of sand, sun, and fun.  We were going through the motions and became very lackadaisical in our approach to this training mission.  We forgot that we were on a peace keeping mission to keep the waters free and clear of danger, we forgot that we had a greater mission at hand that we were being prepared for.  As they began to target the ships, they realized that the guy who was to launch the missiles was still in bed.  Again, this was just an exercise, we were not really going to launch 6 missiles at our allies.  As the young shipmate was bright to fire Control, he was sleepy, he was just woken up and the information he was given he thought was real.  They had failed to issue the command “Exercise, Exercise Exercise” statement with every command.  This young man was tired, and he was trained to not ask questions, he was trained to do his job without question.  He pushed the button and launched two of the six missiles.  He replied, “Birds Away Sir”.  That is when all panic set in.  As I stood there watching the video cameras outside the ship, I felt the ship shake and I saw the missiles launch, I saw the glow of them leaving the ship, then I saw the explosion on the horizon.  I was in shock, we just launched two missiles at another ship, our friends, our allies, men and woman my age.    My heart sank, and pandemonium engulfed the ship. They managed to stop the other four missiles from launching, but now we had to decide what to do next.  We had not trained for this, this was unexpected, this was unprecedented.  There was confusion and chaos in all ranks. 

A plan must be made, we must be prepared both physically and spiritually

Finally, a plan was made to go into rescue mode and fly our helicopters over to them to try and save them.  The ship we struck was dark, but on fire, we had struck the bridge and killed the captain and XO with the first missile, the second struck their armory and blew the ship apart.  We were in fear as we did not know if the other two Turkish ships would retaliate out of confusion.  We did not speak their language, we had communication barriers, we just blew them up and killed many of their shipmates and knew we are trying to board them in the dark in the midst of the confusion.  We were there to help but would they interpret out intentions correctly?  They did manage to evacuate the wounded and dying back to our ship as he had to clear out all the debris form the hangar bay via the large elevators.  We had to become coordinated as we had to have teams moving planes, boxes, supplies, teams working the elevators, teams in helicopters, we had to call on the medical staff on all the ships around us to set up a mash style triage unit in the ship. 

A call went out on the intercom asking for those with specific blood types to give their own blood to hep save those that were dying.  The scene the hangar bat was horrific, many bodies, missing limbs, limns missing bodies, body bags stacked up, many burned, many dying.  The smell was unimaginable, the sight was horrifying.  Some in the teams were so moved by what they saw they went into shock, others stood by on the side lines not knowing what to do, while others staying in their racks pretending that this didn’t happen.  Some could not stand the sight of all the blood, missing limbs or the sight of many people who had defecated on themselves.  But in the end, we managed to save all we could. 

In this real-life scenario, I had to live, I had to experience, ai had to decide to either roll up my sleeves and help or pretend it didn’t happen.  I feel the church is about to face one of the greatest revivals it has ever experience, but we are unprepared for it as we have lived mild lives as Christians.  Are we prepared to get our uniforms, dirty, are we prepared to lose our rank and medals for the lost, dying and hurt?  Are we prepared to love the most unlovable that you will ever encounter?  Are you ready to get your hands dirty, give blood, be OK with touching the feces of those who are not your own kin?  Are we prepared to work together with other ships to accomplish the mission that is at hand?

A call to Action through Conviction

As I woke up this morning I was in tears, I cried and grieved, and I was convicted and convinced that we are not ready for this level or rescue.  But my heart is so broken and moved to the lost, dying and burned that I saw in that room.  I was moved to action as I realized that we have wasted too much time already and its time to get into position and be made ready like an Emergency Room Triage staff is readying themselves as they get the call that they are about to receive many dying and injured who are in need of a savior.  In both the dream and in my real life experience there is a common theme, there was smoke in the Pastors house and the alarm was being sounded, there was serious lack of planning and confronting of issues that need to be dealt with, there was an array of distractions from pride, judging and arrogance that limited action, there was negligence that took place form alack of focus and a lackadaisical attitude that led to many of our allies being lost.  I saw the church her people were exposed in a way that scared me, it upset me and I realized hat the real enemy in the church is us, not Satan, its our ignorance of how important our mission is to save the lost.  We have forgotten that that’s our only mission, its where the church was created.  But due to be per-occupied with business, titles, positions, meetings and programs, we have built a weak church that is not prepared for War, it is not prepared for what must be done must start in our hearts, in the prayer rooms, in the bedrooms, and in the store rooms of the church.   We have forgotten that we are here to work with other churches to accomplish the greatest harvest the church has ever seen. 

2nd Confirming Dream

As I woke up and even before I could write this dream down, I received another dream from one of our leaders that brought such confirmation to God making this very clear to us. 

DREAM “ARE WE TRULY READY FOR REVIVAL?” December 1, 2020

I am in the back of the church and worship has just ended. Very packed morning and people are moving around using bathrooms, etc. before you start your message. The worship leader is a short, heavy set woman with short hair and dark complexion. She walks up to me and says, "Doug I was really distracted during the set because there was a first time guest sitting in the front row who sat during all of worship with his hand on his crotch." Then another woman walks up to me and says, "Doug, there were two men a few rows back, they are new and look homeless. One of them was sticking his finger into his butt and then using poop as lubricant to masturbate with." She looked horrified and I thought it was the worst thing that could possibly happen. I asked them both where these people were as they were not at their seats. They weren't sure but perhaps they were in the bathroom or cafe. I saw the two come in but for some reason they were now 2 very butch lesbians. I was rehearsing how to scold them and not draw attention or distract you as you were at the pulpit now getting ready to start. Before I could walk over to them, I heard the Lord out loud say, "I invited them here. Why are you going to embarrass them, so they never come back? He (the one who masturbated) is so bound in his infestation that he doesn’t even know what he is doing." I wake up to my alarm, consider the dream, then fall back asleep and the dream continues: I am now in the bathroom with Larry and that guy. Larry is holding him up straight by holding his upper arms. He is so demonized he is writhing and swaying and can’t hold himself up. His pants are down and there is crap all over his genitals. He has crap and sperm on his hands. I somehow know if I clean his body, the demonic will utterly leave, and he will be whole again. I am gagging and disgusted but I begin to slowly clean him with paper towels that are !
 largely ineffective.
At one point he grabs my face with his hands and smears my face with filth. I almost vomit. The demons behind his eyes are trying everything they can to stay inside him. I wake when I am 90% or so done cleaning him.  End of the dream.

 

This has been a very disturbing and I know graphic dream, but I know that God is trying to warn us to get ready for what is to come.  This week I had a person visit our church and we have had many new visitors.  This one in particular is a bit brash and comes across in a critical way that automatically causes our defenses to go up as to not hear what he is saying.  I dismissed him and several leaders were also critical of his approach  but God stopped me and rebuked me gentle as He said:  “I have brought this person to your church to be an asset, but you only see him as a hindrance.  Stop looking at the package and then making a quick decision to not receive that package based on the box it came in.  Learn to speak their language and look beyond the rough package and see them the way I see them.”

3rd Confirming Dream

As I shared this dream with our oversight Pastor Tim Franklin at the Freedom Church in Viera, I was blown away with his response.  He stated that over thanksgiving week he had a very disturbing dream where he was no longer himself but in the body of a Lost man.  He felt all the emotions, fears and actions that this man took to try to be rescued.  He was even taken up to a high pinnacle to see his life from a distance so that he could understand what he was feeling.  He was so broken by this but was left puzzled as to why he had this dream but once he received these two dreams it brought a clarity to action for him.  Even prior to hearing these dreams, God had given him a clear plan to prepare his church for saving the Lost.  He had told me that God told him that the month of December he to focus all the church on a sermon series called…drum roll please, “Church, we are losing the Lost.!

God is always faithful to prepare us for what is coming, and we know one thing, the Harvest is coming, but it does not look like what e have seen in the past.  We have been called to ready the remnant, get organized, check our hearts, lose the religion, titles, positions and self-imposed ambitions and roll up our sleeves to make ready for the casualties that are coming.

 

DREAM “ANTICHRIST BORN – RAPTURE UNFOLDING”  He’s Coming NOW!  December 6, 2020

I was sitting in a chair in a living room when I felt the ground and house shake, almost as if a huge boulder had been dropped outside. I got up to see what was going on and, in the distance, I saw what looked like a large, clear vacuum hose coming out of the sky to the ground. I saw something being sucked into it. As I looked closer, I noticed it was animals. Pigs, sheep, cows, dolphin, sea turtles etc. I quickly realized what was going on. The rapture was happening! I ran into the rooms where my kids wee sleeping and yelled, “Get up! If you don’t have Jesus in your heart, you need to ask Him, He’s coming NOW!” I tried to call Buddy; he was out of town working. But no matter how often I called, He didn’t answer. Max told me, “Mom, dad has changed where he is leaving from, he will meet us there.”. I looked down at my phone and my group text that my family back home has going was blowing up, asking “Do you see that strange looking funnel cloud? What is it?” I texted back, “It is not a funnel cloud, but the rapture. Jesus is coming NOW!”

I was able to see into a store where people were shopping, carrying on with life as usual talking about some sales that were going to happen in July. I told them, “It won’t matter in July! Jesus will have come back! You need to ask Him into your heart! He’s coming NOW!”

I walked in a room and saw a pregnant woman. She was in pain and I wanted to get her to a doctor, she was going into labor. Suddenly, her stomach started tearing open. She said, as she was screaming in terror and pain, “Something is wrong! He isn’t being born the natural way; He’s helping himself out!” I then saw this baby as he came out of her abdomen, walking and talking. His birth had killed his mother. I immediately saw Satan come up out of a dark closet and wrap his arms around this child, embracing him.

I quickly ran outside where people were standing looking up and around, lost and scared. I saw my mom, buried up to her neck in the ground, crying (I am feeling it’s because she was paralyzed in fear). I remember seeing other family members there who were Christians and family and strangers who I didn’t know whether they knew Jesus or not. I kept yelling outside to the group “If you don’t know Jesus, you need to ask Him into your heart, He’s coming NOW!” One young man, who I didn’t recognize was standing there with doubts, full of fear, but knowing he had to make a choice. He asked,” how can a God who is so loving, leave part of His creation behind to face the enemy?” I told him, “this is what will happen, the dead will rise next. Which means the graves will open up and they will go up just like you saw the animals going. Believe me, when that happens, I am going to the cemetery to see that! Afterwards, He will take the ones who are living on the earth who know Him to meet Him up in the air. The ones left behind will have to face the enemy. They will be left with a choice. To get the mark of the beast or die. Those who do not get the mark, will be tortured and killed, but will be able to enter the Kingdom of heaven. That is their final chance.”

Doug Rice was standing with me among all the people outside. I told him about seeing the baby born and the circumstances around it. He wanted to see it. I took him inside along with another unrecognized female. I went to the room where the baby was born and I yelled, “Satan come out!”. Again, he and the child were hiding in the dark closet. Out came the “baby” first. He had grown freakishly quick, about the size of a 10-year-old within a couple hours. Satan followed right behind him with a smirk. The child started speaking telling us that he knew everything going on because Jesus spoke with him, asking him to pray for the people. I spike, “Satan you are a liar! You are the deceiver and the master of all things impure! I bind you in the name of Jesus!” Both the “child” and Satan shrieked and drew up, but then started speaking again. I declared, “I am covered in the blood of Jesus and in ALL His authority, I bind you and cast you away from us and command you to be silent!” They both shrieked and withered up, retreating back to the dark closet.

I went back out and there suddenly appeared what looked like “Storm Troopers” militants where you couldn’t see their faces, fully armed in armored gear head to toe, carrying guns. They were in twos, doing a run, march to Satan’s room. I started to get panicked thinking maybe I had missed the rapture because everything was happening so fast. SUDDENLY, I saw people running out of the cemetery. They were carrying rocks, frantically dropping them along the edge of the cemetery trying to build a wall as if they were trying to block something. The dead had started to rise! I saw them coming out of the graves, going into the air! Some were completely decayed; some were partially and some not at all. Some were dressed in tatters of clothes (I remember seeing some in old military uniforms like confederate soldiers) But they were smiling, full of joy, reaching up into the heavens. I said, “This is it!” and I awoke.

DREAM “CLINT EASTWOOD” December 10, 2020

It was a movie that was playing out.  The pastor was Clint Eastwood (Pastor Buddy). He was doing a murder investigation for someone in the church.  Something happened where it was publicly known there was favor given towards the murderer.  So, while the pastor was away taking weeks to investigate, murderers and rapists were visiting the church.  There was a scene where a senior church lady employee complained about them coming.  Then I saw a scene with Clint Eastwood and Doug talking about what happened.  Clint was saying these people have been coming in while I was gone?  Doug responds yes. Clint says this is what must have been prophesied about recently in regard to people coming into the church. 

 

DREAM “Catching Large Fish, Being Transformed” December 15, 2020

Part 1

This dream was made up of several parts.  The first part was about me and my son Max and we were fishing inside a building, that almost looked like a parking garage.  But in the middle was a large opening that was filled with water.  We began to fish and suddenly we would hook into a very large fish.  This happened over and over and as soon as we would catch one, remove it from the water, we would catch another one.  I remember the fish were all very different in size, shape and color.  The first one was like a large permit fish, I remember hearing Max say wow I have never caught one of those before, this is a first.  I could hear the excitement in his voice.  The next one looked like a tiger stripped type of fish that resembled a Hog Fish.  The next one was a Pacu Fish, they look like they have human teeth, but this one was grey and missing many teeth.  The next one I remember was a black and white fish that looked a little like a small shark.  It was black and white with small bumps on it and I looked it up on my phone in the dream and it showed that it was a “Deep Dweller Fish” and that it was very rare to catch this kind of fish.  I noticed another fish that was large and blue, but as Max was getting ready to put him back into the water, I noticed it had a large silver hook in its mouth and I stopped him and said we have to remove that hook so he could heal.  Se we removed it slowly as to not harm him, then let him go in the water.  We were very busy catching the fish that I noticed several other people that I did not recognize started trying to fish in the same spot as we were, but they grew very frustrated as they could not catch the fish we were catching.  In fact, they did not catch any at all.  They seemed to be doing the same thing we were but with no luck.  I noticed that the fish were very large and were even stretching our poles to the limit and even breaking some of them slightly as we hooked into them.  The final fish we caught was by accident.  It was a large Dolphin (Porpoise) It was grey and had hit our lines and become tangled.  We pulled him in and noticed that if was sick and needed help.  This fish we carried to another location to get some help and a team met us and said this was a juvenile Dolphin and he must have been in the waters we found him by accident.  We felt a since of urgency to get him in a much large body of water so he could survive.  As we released this dolphin to the team and was walking back to our fishing spot, the same ones who were frustrated that they could not catch the fish we were catching, now tried to take credit for saving the Dolphin.  I turned to them and said, go ahead and take credit for it, but we choose to give the credit to God.  That’s when I walked into a gated area and they turned to go back to seek the glory for saving the Dolphin.

Part 2

The dream now shifted to Amy.  I saw here standing in front of me and she seemed overly excited about a new vehicle that she was about to test drive.  She was standing with headphone in her ears as if she was listening to worship music.  She said this new vehicle was super exciting and you loved it but that the interior was solid blue, and she wasn’t sure about it as it was very different than any vehicle, she had been in.  She said that she needed to go away for a few days to get used to this new vehicle and spend time with it to see if it was worth the price, she was going to have to pay to get it.  Suddenly everything shifted and I knew it have been some time to pass and now when was pulling up in her new vehicle.  She stepped out of the blue interior and now since she had spent some time in it there was a huge change in her as she stepped out of the vehicle.  She was now transformed into a little girl wearing a beautiful dress with ruffles, stockings, shoes, jewelry, and even a hat but they were all blue.  The Blue Interior had transformed her into what I was now seeing.

Part 3

In this part of the dream, I didn’t see people, but I saw two things.  A row of glass vases and a large pots / pans.  They were undergoing a transformation to modify them back to there original design.  I saw the vases undergo a flame / fire treatment to them that made them flexible again.  I saw them be stretch upward as the heat made them glow.  They were all be stretched to up to 3 times taller than before.  Then it shifted to the pots.  I saw that there was some modification made to them over the years as partial coverings and ornamental metal was added to them causing them to not function the way they were created to function.  I saw a hand removed the extra items from them so that they were now totally open and ready to be filled.  End of the dream.

I felt that there was a theme in all three parts.  The fishing poles were not ready for the size of fish were catching and it caught us off guard.  They needed to be modified or strengthened as I felt they were going to break from too much flexing.  Amy was being transformed, and so were the vases and pots / pans.  They were all being modified and stretched for purpose.

DREAM “YOUR HIDDEN IS KEEPING YOU FROM THE HIDDEN” December 17, 2020

In the dream I was allowed to be part of a team of what appeared to be police officers.  We were searching a large apartment complex as we had flashlights and others carried a large metal trash dumpster.  As we went into a house, we were looking for something that the family was hiding.  We shined our lights all around the room and was then led to the couch.  Inside the arms of the couch had a stash of various items to include jewels, passports, weapons, and ammunition.  They had been hiding these items for their own family and from others in the apartment buildings.  As we pulled the items from the hidden storage in the sides of the couch arms, I stepped back a looked at an outside wall with a large fireplace in the middle.  I noticed that the wall was much thicker than it should be as the fireplace was flush on both the inside and outside of the home.  I was able to open the whole wall like a door and inside was full of gold, gems, jewels, supplies, guns, ammo and countless other items.  I got the sense from the dream that in this season of the church, many have hidden what little they have for themselves.  They are looking out for their own families and refuse to use what little they have to help others.  This was being exposed by authority and I could see that of they did not even know about the hidden stash inside the wall with the fireplace.  I felt in my spirit that because they held onto the little hidden stuff in a selfish move, that it had cut them off form the much larger heavily supply that was laid up for them.  I believe God was speaking that if we would trust him in this season to release what little we have to help others that will be in need, that it will unleash an un-measurable amount of heavens resources laid up for the Church and church people.  I also felt that we were there to collect what little they had in selfishness that was about to be thrown into the dumpster bin.  It was like a Holy Spirit exposure that had lasting consequences.  It reminded me of the boy with the fishes and loaves who gave what little he had to feed 5000 and in Acts when they had all things in common and every need was met unselfishly by the body of Christ.  There was a multiplication of great level coming to the body of Christ if we choose to look past our own needs to help the least of these.

 

DREAM “PROTECTION FROM TARNISHING” December 17, 2020

Amy also had a dream last night of God showing us the people of God and how they allow things into their lives to tarnish the silver that we are.  The more we get tarnished by the world, the more we must be polished.  But with each passing polish some of our silver goes with it. She saw God putting the silver piece into an airtight clear box to protect from the tarnishing process.  We have to allow God to separate us by His presence from the world to keep the beauty of who He created us to be to stay pure and full of reflection of Christ.  He desires to set us up as a piece of His treasure to the world fit for a museum not a tarnished worn-out utensil fit for a flea market.

 

DREAM “PROPHETICALLY FOCUED PRAYER” December 24, 2020

 

I dreamed I was at the Overflow Church in the place they are now, across from the courthouse. I either had a stage view looking out to the people and chairs or I was standing on the stage. I saw a simple folding chair over to the Right, past the stage, under the projector screen. (If I was sitting out with the congregation, it would be on the Left side of the stage, but from my perspective it was to the right.) I immediately began to pray for someone that would one day be sitting in that chair. I prayed for emotional healing. And deliverance. I knew what to pray for because the Holy Spirit led me. And then I began to get up and go down to a seat where everybody sits. I went to the Right side, closest to the back-parking lot and found a seat. Then I woke up.

 

DREAM “GOD IS IN THE FLOOD” December 24, 2020

 Here's the other dream. Only some of it took place at Overflow. I went back to bed. Again I dreamed being at Overflow Church. I saw some people. Hailey (from high school cheer) was there. She led worship or spoke on the microphone on the stage some. She wasn't wearing a lot of makeup (like I had seen her weeks ago in person at Bethany's baby shower). But her and I connected. She spoke about something, and God had clearly given her insight. I was impressed! It was like she was talking directly to me as she spoke. Either switched scenes or switched view... Now, the chairs had been moved to the sides of the room (only a few chairs in each row, on both sides of the room) and the middle of the room was open for standing, praying, dancing. I waited a bit and then decided I was going to get up and be in the middle. There was only a handful of people standing in the middle, everybody spread out. Amy was one of them in the middle. Later, a guy told me what he was trying to fix. It was either in the front near the stage, or on the stage. (Without the stage being raised up like it is in real life) Then scene switched to the back part of the sanctuary of Overflow. I talked with somebody from the sound booth that was standing on the bottom step, closest to the ground. (I don't remember if I was catching up with someone I know or just saying hi?) Then the guy that I had talked with in the front was back there. He was in a bubble or some kind of circle thing. He introduced himself to me and I introduced my name and we shook hands. He acted like he didn't want to let go of my hand, but I did gently and kindly. He had bought a new phone but was upset that it wouldn't play the new video game he wanted to play. I had a suggestion on how to fix it. But when I said "can I share an idea with you?" He wasn't interested. So I began to walk away. Then he said something as I was walking away. I said "that's what my idea was about- a solution on how to fix it." Then he listened. I can't remember what else happened or how it went for that guy. But then I walked towards the cafe, as I was, I saw Shayne & Juliette briefly at the doors of the sanctuary (right by cafe). We all smiled at each other and waived as we walked by. It was very quick though; I barely saw their faces. I walked into the cafe/lobby. The counter had been upgraded and curved around the wall about a foot in length (curved towards the standing area right in front of the sanctuary). It did not extend all the way, but just about a foot around. (Overflow obviously invested into the serving ministry of food/kitchen area - and I remember how God gave Leal & David the food ministry because I had a vision earlier this year while at Tues night prayer with them about Leal handing out rubies from the fridge to people) I walked behind the kitchen counter and just stood there. I saw Abby Cummings (we met in middle school) and some other people. Abby sat a chair in the lobby (in front of the TV, above the receptionist room with sliding windows) it was near the front door, but maybe 7 feet inward. She began to play guitar and sing. She sang about how God is with us in a flood. Then I saw water rushing outside. Mostly just covering the street in between Overflow & the Courthouse. The water outside did NOT go really high to the top of the windows (ceiling). But water definitely rushed over the street, and was probably at least 3 or 5 feet high. It was flowing fast. Then scene switched and I was outside on a street (I didn't recognize the place). Somebody started running because a huge flood water (like tsunami) was coming. I watched them run. They were headed toward a big building (was it at least 10 stories high?) It wasn't rectangular like a sky scraper. It was wider. (I guess they were trying to get to the top of the building away from the water? In my mind as I watched the guy run I thought about how people & families get split up and washed away during floods. And how you can be on your own for days, wondering where your family and friends are.. looking around til you find them. Then I saw a dog (or creature) eat a tan/brown mouse (not grey mouse) he found on the side of the road under something. It carried the mouse in its mouth for a while and then grabbed a black bug (put the mouse down) because it wanted to have both. I watched this happen. Then more flood waters came.

 

DREAMS “TIME TO CLEAN OUT THE OLD TO MAKE READY FOR THE LARGER” December 26, 2020

In this dream it was in many parts.  The first part of the dream I was in the process of trading our car in for a much larger SUV.  I was not for sure if we could afford it as it would be a higher price than what we were usually willing to pay.  Amy and I shopped and searched for this vehicle, but we first had to clean out our old one.  We hit many roadblocks in finding this new larger vehicle but suddenly we were in it.  It had much more room inside it and I remember saying, wow this will be much more comfortable for traveling as I remember feeling the seats as they were exceptionally large and comfy leather seats with lots of support.

The dream now shifted to a large travel like trailer that we received.  It was mobile but it needed some renovation to make it ready for its purpose.  Inside of it were many things from an older couple who once lived there.  I saw many journals written by the wife and I saw many old relics from a career in Private Investigations from the husband.  I saw old videos and audio recordings, an old camera that looked very similar to mine.  I was collecting these items and putting them away in drawers and filling them away.  I felt like it was saying goodbye to an old life well served and making ready for anew life.  I saw a large refrigerator in the center of the room.  Doug walked in and opened the fridge and was excited to see it fully stocked with all his favorite drinks.  I noticed the back of the fridge was open so you could see inside.  It was if the fridge was being stocked from the rear, always kept full of everything we needed or wanted so we could retrieve it from the front.

The dream now shifts, and I see a very large building that we were retrofitting for church.  It was like a large warehouse with a main seating section that was open to the outside.  We were cleaning out all the rooms of old items to make ready for the new items that would fill it.  There was a large platform that led to the outside that was a large body of water.  As I walked around the large body of water edge inside the building, I saw a multitude of fish, large once just swimming around.  I also saw a large alligator that was in the process of trying to get those fish and causing a commotion in the water that was pushing the fish closer to us.  I remember thinking in the dream wow we could really set up a lot of tables in the open area facing the water and could feed so many.  There were two large restrooms near this open area, and we started by cleaning them out of all the trash.  I found a large bag of items I brought out of the bathrooms and brought it over to an old man sitting at a large wooden desk.  He was directing us as to what to keep and what to throw away.  In the bag were a large pile of glass door, drawer and cabinet knobs that were from many antiques.  The old man said oh yes keep those you will need them to access the hidden.  I then noticed a chain at the water’s edge that went into the water.  It was connected to a large metal object that I pulled out of the water and set it on the edge.  It was a large chicken type feeder that many chickens could eat from at a time.  It was round and had many openings for little chickens to eat small amounts of seed like food.  The old man said keep that, but its not good to be used anymore, it will be used as wall art, so hang it on the wall.

The dream now shifts, and I find Amy and I standing next to a large chain link fence and on the other side was a paved road.  Doug walks across the road and speaks to me through the fence.  He says, “You do realize that you and Amy will no longer be able to work in the careers you are currently working in right?”  I saw before me in my mind my private investigation career and Amy’s Recovery Church careers going away.  He Said, “With what God is about to do, you will have no time for them, and God will be provided for you in other ways” He said “You ill not be able to do both as some of the meetings you will be involved in with last for days on end”.  I got he sense the this was a new road for us that was about to be released but was for now just on the other side of the fence.

The dream now shifts back to the large building.  As I stood in the large open area overlooking the water, my attention was drawn to the right side of the property, just beyond the waters edge and the buildings edge.  I was standing up on a platform and could see a large army sunk down in just out of view.  I could only see them from the foreheads up.  They were in perfect battle array, with perfect looking shinning helmets with red feather like adornments o the tops of the helmets.  I heard God Speak a phrase over and over…” The hidden Army had been concealed, but it is now about to be released!”.  I was unsure as to what the Armies purpose was, but I knew it was planned for a new season that was about to come upon the church and it was fully equipped for battle and they were together in unity.  I could only see the tops of their helmets as they had been hidden but were about to be released!

DREAM “PUSH THROUGH YOUR EMOTIONS AND PREACH THE WORD” December 30, 2020

I had a dream that Amy and I were ministering in a black church in another city.  I saw a woman that I recognized as it was her church in Jacksonville, Fl.  The presence of the Lord came in so think that we could barely stand.  I remember being caught off guard by how strong His presence was that I was doubled over laughing and crying.  I couldn’t find my notes, but I remembered a scripture of Less is More.  Amy came over to me and said push through your emotions and preach the WORD.
