Not only are new trainees coming, who will likely look different from what we’re used to seeing, but based on a dream I received in May 2017, the training facilities will look different too. In this dream, we were not allowed to meet publicly, so we were meeting secretly. Instead of a traditional meeting facility, we met outside in what appeared to be the parking lot of an abandoned business complex. It looked like something out of an apocalyptic movie, but it was a gathering of disciples, all quietly standing and listening as several of us taught them how to be led by the Holy Spirit. Many of them stood around us while others looked down from the top of a parking deck.
We had no microphones or speaker systems, but everyone could hear us. We had no script, no program, no pre-arranged plan. We just followed the leading of the Holy Spirit, saying what He put in our heart to say. One person would speak for a few minutes, then another, as the Spirit moved. There was no competition between us. We worked together seamlessly, in perfect harmony. His promptings were clear and strong, so we had no doubt about what He wanted us to say. We just followed His script, so we were not only teaching, but also demonstrating how to be led by Him. At different times, the teaching reached climactic points, causing the whole crowd to erupt with applause.
I explained how to listen to the inner witness, the promptings coming from the inside, from our heart, our inner man. I explained that before we can be led by the Holy Spirit, we must first be born again by the Spirit. I told them, “You must first invite the Lord Jesus Christ to come into your heart. Invite Him to be the Lord of your life. Then He will receive you and He will lead you and guide you.” (Romans 10:9-10)
I looked up to the top of the parking deck and saw a row of rough looking guys standing there. They had long hair and beards and were dressed like biker dudes. I knew they were new disciples and they were hungry to hear the message. They were taking in every word of it, watching, listening, and nodding their heads in agreement. I knew how much they needed to know these things we were teaching. I felt compassion for them and for everyone there because of the dark times we were facing. End of dream.
I believe the context of this dream reveals the times of trouble coming upon the whole world before the Lord returns, which God has been warning about through many scriptures, dreams and visions, although many have refused to hear it. (Isaiah 24:1-6, Daniel 7:19-27, 8:22-25, 9:27, 12:1, Zechariah 12:8-9, 14:2-5, 14:12-15, Matthew 24:4-34, 2 Thessalonians 1:4-10, 2 Timothy 3:1-8, Jude 1:17-23, Revelation 6:1-17, 8-19)
The laws of our land had been changed, fulfilling the prophecies regarding the coming spirit of antichrist. (Daniel 7:25) That spirit had gained such a grip over our land, it had managed to steal our religious liberties, forcing us to meet secretly, like our brothers and sisters in other parts of the world have been doing for many years. We were not stopped by their threats or by our lack of facilities, but we were ministering in more power than what’s happening in many churches today.
Like my flying dream, I saw no envy, strife, or competition among us. Instead, we each took our turn speaking only what the Holy Spirit gave us to say. Then we stepped aside to hear what He was saying through someone else. It was not a one-man show, like what we see happening in our churches today. Instead, our ministry more closely resembled the first century church, with our attention focused on obeying the Lord because it was not about us. It was only about meeting the needs of His people without the least concern for any kind of leadership hierarchy or jockeying for position. Through all these things, we were demonstrating how God’s Kingdom operates.
Ironically, the primary focus of the training was a topic that is almost completely absent in our seeker-friendly churches today, being led by the Holy Spirit to do whatever He says to do and go wherever He says to go. That kind of obedience is what makes us sons and daughters of God, separating us from the hypocrites and harlots who only talk the talk. (Romans 8:14)
Our meeting was filled with many new disciples as shown by the way I was explaining to them they first needed to be born again. I believe my instructions showed what’s coming before the Lord returns, a great harvest of souls entering God’s Kingdom during dark times. (Isaiah 60:1-5, Amos 9:13-15, Zechariah 2:10-12, Matthew 13:24-30, Mark 16:15-18, John 12:32-33, Acts 1:7-8) The great trouble that had come upon our land was likely what caused many of them to turn to God. As new disciples, they needed to hear the most basic truths. They hadn’t had time to learn very much, but they were standing firm on what little they knew, even willing to risk everything to be part of our meeting when it was forbidden by our government, so they demonstrated their sincere commitment to God by their great faith and courage.
The rough looking biker dudes showed what’s coming in the harvest will not look like what we’re used to seeing. They looked rough on the outside, but their hearts were tender to God, as shown by the way they were nodding their head in agreement. I believe God is warning us in advance not to be moved by outward appearances, just rely on the leading of the Holy Spirit.
