In a dream on October 18, 2022, I was listening to a narrator saying, “And now, into captivity, war!” When he said that I heard one loud drum beat.
Then the scene changed and I was looking straight down about ten feet below and saw my one-year old grandson sitting on the floor looking straight up at me with an innocent look on his face. End of dream.
The first part requires no interpretation. War is coming. No dates were given, but the troubling part of it was the narrator saying, “And now…”
So that sounds soon.
And war leads to captivity, so I believe that’s coming but based on many other insights into my own future and the future of our country, I believe captivity is much further out on the timeline, how it ultimately ends, not how it begins.
In the second part, looking straight down is a common dream symbol for financial markets dropping straight down. And babies often represent the start of a new season ahead. And I believe he was shown as a reminder for us to be mindful of the needs of His little ones during these times of trouble.
I believe this dream provides more insights into another dream I received on August 24 in which I was speaking with an unseen person and told them, “Nothing will be the same after September 25, 26.” As I explained in my post on September 10, 2022, those two days mark the start of the new year on the Hebrew calendar, Rosh Hashanah, so the warning was not about a specific day, but about the coming new year which began one month ago.
By connecting war with a straight drop in financial markets, this confirms another dream I received on April 23, 2020, in which I was high up in the sky in a very large military facility that was floating thousands of feet above the ocean. I saw soldiers busily preparing for something but they weren’t ready yet because they had not yet put on their uniform shirts, so they were wearing their white t-shirts. Then I leaned over the edge of a large bay door and looked straight down at the ocean and saw the water was very troubled. For more details, see my post.

The other troubling part about all these warnings is that football season is now underway, which is precisely when I was told in another dream that America would be invaded. I received that on November 9, 2014. The following is an excerpt from my post in which I shared this dream the same day.
Today I dreamed America was under attack. It was during football season and everyone was totally distracted by either attending the games or watching them on television. Suddenly, our nation came under attack as we were invaded right here in our land.
In this dream my family and I were living in a house located in a neighborhood in a coastal city. I don’t know what city it was because we actually live far from the coast. When the news of the invasion was announced everyone panicked. There was total hysteria and chaos. Fear gripped the whole nation. Everyone in our city was getting out of there as fast as they could, grabbing what they could and fleeing inland. I went out to my driveway and spoke with one of my neighbors. He told me he was getting his family together and fleeing. He said he thought they would be much safer getting away from the coast.
No one had any information about where the foreign armies had landed or what cities were under attack, but everyone just assumed they would be safer by getting away from the coast.
At my house several families came together. I asked them if we could all pray together so we formed a big circle with all of the adults and kids. We joined hands and started praying. There were several other fathers there and they each prayed short prayers. Their prayers were way off the mark because they seemed to be so full of themselves.
Then I started praying and something rose up from deep inside of me as my heart cried out to God saying, “Oh God, you alone are our God! We look to you and only you! We put all of our hope and trust in you. We are not going anywhere without you. We are going to stay right here until you tell us to go somewhere else. Wherever you are is where we want to be!”
As I prayed everyone including the kids joined in agreement with me. By the time we were done we were all in agreement, in one accord. Immediately we were given insights into what was happening and saw what we needed to do. We saw the enemy was able to monitor our movements through their satellite surveillance. They were watching everything going on in America. Since everyone else had fled the enemy would assume we had fled with them. We understood we could not go outside during the daylight hours, but needed to stay in the house. At night we could go outside without being detected. If we stayed inside after dark we had to keep our lights turned off except perhaps a flashlight or a candle.
So we came up with a plan to send everyone out into the neighborhood at night to gather as much water and food as we could find. We became nocturnal, sleeping during most of the day and eating breakfast just before it got dark. Then at night we went into the abandoned homes looking for things we needed. Although we still had electrical power, we did not expect it to last much longer so we looked for items that we could use without power. We knew the neighbors were not coming back so they would not need these things. Then we would all return back to our house before sunrise. After sunrise we would have our dinner before going to bed.
We saw that everyone who fled in panic had not taken time to realize what they were doing. The freeways would be jammed like a parking lot. The gas stations would be closed or out of gas so their cars would soon run out of gas. Then they would be stranded a long ways from their homes. They would not be able to find water or food. Besides that they had no idea where the enemy was going to strike next. For all they knew they could have been driving into an area where a nuclear bomb was going to drop. They were racing to their own destruction because they did not trust the Lord or take the time to seek Him about what they should do. They were in great danger because He was not a part of their lives.
Meanwhile, we were safe and had everything we needed because we sought the Lord first and followed His leading. We seemed to have an endless supply of everything we needed.
Then the scene changed and I was at a hospital. At the front desk I saw two ladies working there. I recognized one of them as a Christian lady I knew who just recently died. Yet she was very actively involved in helping people during this time trouble. I thought about how the people in heaven were working together with the believers on earth to do the will of God. Those who have died in the Lord are very much alive with Him. They are not just floating on clouds playing harps either. They are busy doing His will, which means they are tending to the important matters that are on His heart. What is on His heart is the people who are now living on the earth because He knows we’re in the heat of the battle, in the valley of decision where we must choose between eternal life and eternal death. The Bible tells us people in heaven are able to see what is happening here (Hebrews 12:1), but I believe the Lord allows them to be involved in other ways too. Heaven and earth join together as one in doing the will of the Father! (see the complete post)
Finally, the dream below confirms all of the above dreams. It was received by Karissa Washburn early in the morning on May 21, 2012. That was over ten years ago, but the warning remains just as alive today as ever. I believe God gives longer advance warning for major events.
She shares it in her own words…
“It woke me up when it was finished at around 5:30-6am. It was very disturbing. I felt a great deal of sorrow and mourning when I woke up. It was very heavy. The dream was a series of “scenes” in which I saw back to back.
A family was sitting at a dinner table. Mom, dad, baby in a high chair and 2 small children. They were enjoying a meal. A bomb was placed down in the middle of the table and they completely ignored it. The bomb was round and large – about the size of a basketball. The family kept eating. At first the mother and father slightly glimpsed at it but then they ignored it. The children started drawing on it with crayons. The parents were interacting with their children and laughing. Then the bomb started ticking and the ticking became more intense, louder and faster. Their eating slowed down and the parents looked at each other in fear.Then the ticking stopped and the parents grabbed each other’s hands and held on to their children. The bomb exploded.
Men were in a yard throwing a baseball. They were playing a game of baseball together. It wasn’t professional baseball. It was like a bunch of family members together playing ball. In the middle of throwing the ball, the ball exchanged to a grenade. It looked like a grenade was thrown into the game and the regular game ball fell by the side. The men at first looked at the grenade but paid no attention to it and continued to throw it….they continued with the game. Then it went off.
Men were running down a football field toward the goal. People in the stands were cheering. It was a professional football game. As they were running toward the goal a large missile came through the air, skidded in the dirt and dug into the dirt right beside the goal. No one paid any attention to it being there…they were so engrossed with the amazing play and the game. The crowd was standing and cheering. I saw a couple of the football players (as they were running) look at each other and the missile that was buried halfway into the dirt. But they kept on running. Moments after the touchdown, the missile exploded. (The team was wearing a dark red color and I thought I saw something gold).
Children were playing on the school playground. A fence surrounded the entire perimeter of the school. Suddenly men dressed in long white gowns and white head-dresses started coming out of the woods. Others got out of cars. They made their way to the fence and surrounded the school. The teachers on the playground watched the men gather. They had a look of uncertainty and worry but they said and did nothing. They just stood there and watched as the children continued to play. It seemed like a loud echoing sound was heard…then all at once in unison they jumped over the fence, pulled machetes from their gowns and began their terror. I don’t want to write what I saw.
Men and women that looked very ashen and thin were walking toward what looked like on the outside a bank. They walked up to the bank and put their money through a slot that was accepting their “deposit.” They seemed sad and lifeless. Part of the bank became transparent so I could see into it. It was totally destroyed on the inside….there was nothing. It looked like a bomb went off on the inside – it was a bottomless pit. There was nothing there – no floor. I saw the people putting their money into the slot. The money merely floated down into the bottomless pit.
I asked the Lord when these things will happen. I’m frightened. I don’t want this to happen to us and our children. The Lord said “Go back and look again.” I revisited every single scene. This is what I saw:
The family at the table: They were dressed in sweaters and on their plates was cranberry sauce. The flowers on the table were not “spring or summer” flowers – they were darker in color – looked more fall.
The men playing ball were wearing jackets.
The people in the crowds at the football game were wearing coats, some had scarves on, there was a light drizzle of snow that was dissipating on the ground. I saw the breath of the players.
The children at the playground: The children were dressed warmly with heavy jackets. The men at the fence – their gowns were blowing heavily in the wind – the wind was very heavy.
The people at the bank were wearing coats and jackets.
The final scene: I was using my hand to scrape away a thin layer of ice from a window so I could peer through….when I cleared the window I saw a large city with smoke coming from its buildings. I remember saying in great sorrow, “My America! My America!”
I woke up immediately and felt a great sense of sorrow and mourning.
In this crazy world we will have trouble, but when it comes we must be on guard against fear because it undermines our faith and causes us to make bad decisions, putting us in the wrong place at the wrong time, just like the people I saw in my 2014 dream (shown above). The people who panicked were far worse off than those who resisted fear and sought God.
Although trouble is coming, the righteous have nothing to fear because God is much bigger than any trouble that comes our way and He has a long history of delivering His people, just as He has promised repeatedly throughout the scriptures.
It’s amazing how fast store shelves can get depleted during a panic, so I recommend taking some practical steps to prepare by stocking up on long lasting food items like rice, oatmeal and canned food. Paper products like toilet paper and paper towels were unavailable during the 2020 covid scam, so it makes sense to stock up, especially since they have no expiration dates.
Banks have a history of declaring banking holidays during times of trouble, shutting down temporarily, making it impossible to access our money. Other bank tactics include capital controls, limiting the amounts of cash available for withdrawal. So I recommend having some cash on hand. There’s no downside risk since withdrawals cost nothing and the money can later be deposited.
