This Christmas and Thanksgiving Will be Very Different Than Normal

christmasI would like to share a couple of dreams the Lord recently gave me. I don’t often have prophetic dreams. I’ve had some, but not a lot.

Dream #1:
A few weeks ago I dreamt that it was Christmas Eve morning, and we were living in our old house (we moved a year ago).  And neighbors from our CURRENT neighborhood (they’re good friends of ours who are definitely Christians) showed up at the front door of our old house with a big basket of Christmas goodies.  When they arrived I finally realized that I had not done ANYTHING to decorate or prepare for Christmas.  I was getting worried because my mom and stepdad were coming over that day (as they do every Christmas Eve to spend the night), and I knew my mom would be incredibly upset and disappointed.

Interpretation:
This Christmas is going to be very different than normal.  Our old house represents how we’ve always done our Christmas traditions.  And neighbors coming over from our new neighborhood represent that it’s for this new season, this coming Christmas.  I asked the Lord if this dream was from Him, and He confirmed it was.

Dream #2:
Then last week I dreamt that it was Thanksgiving morning.  We had just gotten back from a trip late on Tuesday night.  And I was getting ready to have to call my mom to tell her that I had no turkey and stuffing (the heart of the Thanksgiving meal – to me) prepared, let alone in the oven.  I was going to have to suggest that we buy a store-made version of stuffing and slices of turkey, which I knew would really upset her.

Interpretation:
This Thanksgiving will also be very different than normal. I asked the Lord if this dream was from Him, and He confirmed it was as well.

God is so GOOD, and I’m honored that He would give me dreams like this.

I sensed that because of major financial crises, or martial law, a huge natural disaster, etc. – that is why our holidays will be vastly different. None of us know EXACTLY how it’s going to play out, but we all know something big is coming. It will likely be a combination of things. And also, Frank, I like the added interpretations of the dream. Amen. May we all be found pure-of-heart before our Lord and Savior!

Amen! In the future, the Lord will greatly use those who are truly walking in holiness and prepared for difficult times. Those Christians who are in denial, who don’t believe they will have to go through any type of trial, will either fully seek the Lord, or unfortunately, many will turn from God and blame him for the trials they are experiencing, which are clearly foretold in prophecy. May the Lord greatly bless your ministry.

This is a confirmation to what my hubby and I have been sensing since last year. . that 2014 was the LAST time Thanksgiving and Christmas will be celebrated as it has been celebrated. I say this: NO MORE “CHURCHIANITY” . . . the man-made doctrines need to go in the trash heap and burn up . . . may the Holy Spirit help us ALL to have “eyes to see” and “ears to hear” that we may know the truth and be set free from any pharisee doctrine that binds us. LORD HELP US ALL!!!

I’m here to chime in on the same bandwagon: Last year as I was taking down our Christmas decorations, I just knew that I would not be using them again. I donated most and put a few up for sale. When I had a small group of friends over and offered them my angel collection, it was just a few sentences of conversation later that we discovered we ALL had that inner knowing that this had been our last Christmas to celebrate.

Hello Linda. Your words; ” I say this: NO MORE “CHURCHIANITY” . . . the man-made doctrines need to go in the trash heap and burn up . . . may the Holy Spirit help us ALL…”; is music to my ears. All I want to say to that is AMEN. Jim.

And AMEN Jim. . . Here’s an aside note, but true. . . EVERY time I write out the following word, it starts with demon and I have to change it:
denomination.
I TRULY believe the religious spirit is a shape-shifting spirit that takes on the “form” that fits in with each flavor of churchianity that meets. ANY of us are subject to this VILE spirit, unless we continue to be clean in our walk with Jesus, be STRONG in the Word and listen to/obey the leading of the Holy Spirit.
I have faced this “religious spirit” and it can’t be fought by “debating’ doctrines. .. it can only be “fought” through prayers that the Heavenly Father will open the eyes of those who are under the influence of this VILE demonic entity.

Linda, thanks for sharing. God very clearly told our family over the past two years to stop celebrating the so called “Christian” holidays such as Christmas and Easter. I like your use of the word “Churchianity” although that is a very mild way of putting it – the reality is that these holidays are rooted in pagan sun god worship (Christmas) and the worship of the bare breasted goddess of fertility, Ishtar (Easter). Jesus was actually born on a fall feast day (either Feast of Trumpets or Feast of Tabernacles) and the resurrection of Jesus Christ did not take place on Easter, it took place on the Feast of First Fruits. The timing of Easter is determined based on sun worship and has nothing to do with the timing of the resurrection of Jesus Christ. I don’t believe that we are required to celebrate the feast days legalistically, but my family believes that God is pleased when we celebrate His feast days, rather than the pagan holy days (holidays). Plus, the feast days have so much depth and meaning compared to has so much more meaning than Santa Claus and bunny rabbits. The church is the bride of Christ. So Christmas in effect is celebrating our groom’s birthday not on his actual birthday but instead on the birth day of a pagan sun god (which is really a demon) and participating in traditions used in demon worship (bringing a tree into your house and all the other traditions which are not found anywhere in the Bible). The Bible very clearly and repeatedly emphasizes that God is very particular about how He is to be worshiped. Look at the detailed instructions for building the tabernacle. Look at the worship of the golden calf. Look at the many references to the Israelites… Read more »

We didn’t observe those “holidays” either, Mike. . . . it has been a process of “unplugging” from tradition that is not Biblically based, but social tradition based. It’s difficult, because most of us have this engrained in us, but Jesus came to set us free from ALL that binds us. Each of us must take these things to the LORD in prayer, because we are all in a “process of transformation” and are not necessarily in the same place as another. BUT LORD help us all to be clean and pure before Him, that we may be cleansed vessels of honor for His use now and that we may be ready for the return of our Heavenly Bride groom.

Well said Linda, the Lord told me the same thing, that not everyone is at the same place. But I do believe that is where the Holy Spirit is going to lead the church, just not necessarily all at the same time. It was very difficult for our family to unplug from these holidays as well, but we did it in a way that was not condemning of others because of the things you mentioned in your post. Thank you again for sharing this – it is encouraging to see the Holy Spirit saying to others what we feel strongly He said to us!

I hear you. It seems we’re in a lull and that perhaps things will continue to go on for a while. But then BAM, what just happened in France? How quick are things changing in Germany? I think radical Islam is stirring and executing plans long put in place. Things can change fast. But I like what George said Sept, 11, expect the best for we have a merciful God but expect the worst for the sin of the nations is causing judgement to fall to shake the people, that perhaps some will turn to God and not perish.

Well with Thanksgiving just about 12 days away, I’m thinking the crash has to happen within next week for this dream to be accurate. This dream however, could be for 2016 maybe? I just don’t see how this Thanksgiving could be affected with such little time to the 25teh of Nov.

I’m going out on a limb and against the grain…..but, I don’t think anything will happen on the 13th or 23rd per se. Prophecy is 20/20 looking back but has been ever so elusive looking forward when it comes to time frame. Things will “happen” when we least expect it, like a thief in the night….or better yet, like the 10 virgins. This could be due to God’s mercy given the US one more chance. His mercy is infinite and his dealings with His people have always been redemptive in nature. That said, I could see September passing uneventful….and even a few months then bam….just like 9/11. Then again, we will see because there are less than 3 weeks left in September and we will see for sure. This is just my opinion…and time will reveal.

Michael, I tend to agree. If you look at the past crashes, 1929 took 2 years to bottom, 2001 took almost 2 years and 2008 took over a year to bottom out. It’s a good idea to expect the best because we have a good God but to prepare for the worst because of the sin of our nation. We never expected 9/11 and some event could throw our nation/world into chaos. So the best thing to do is what this site says over and over again. Draw close to the Lord and follow/listen to Him. Let His peace reign in our lives. We need to be a light now more than ever.

Amen, George. Draw close to the Lord and He will draw close to you; then you can be that light and salt. Rick Wiles of TruNews.com has repeatedly told of prophetic warnings that a bomb would end the NFL season short, but he did not know the year. That would be just one more example of a disaster that would have far-reaching impact.

Hi Paloma, I would add that whenever I’m asking God for His wisdom or to hear His voice, I’ll quote James 4:7, “Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.” And Rev. 12:11, “And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony…” That way the enemy is removed from the equation. Also, I quote out loud where Jesus said, “My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me.” I also ask God to please help me to not hear the voice of my flesh, or the enemy, but that I would become increasingly more sensitive to His voice.

Thank you. This is perfect! James Bailey had also advised to get into the Word and really know it by heart. I’ve recently started doing that on a daily basis. But I hadn’t thought of declaring his Word out loud and in faith when seeking to hear Him.

I’m so grateful for this site, James, Linda, Bryan, Jolie and others who have contributed with articles and comments, THANK YOU and BLESS YOU.

I think the neighbors with the basket of Christmas goodies represent those people who have prepared for the collapse and have enough abundance and the inclination to share. The fact that they are Christians is a confirmation that some Christians are recognizing the warning signs and stocking up for future emergency use. The family on the receiving end which didn’t have enough to buy decorations or a turkey represents those families who ignored the warning signs and failed to put away canned goods and other food for the future. The mother who became upset over the suggestion of sliced turkey instead of a store-bought turkey represents those people who will have a very difficult time adapting to the paradigm shift that will occur when severe food shortages hit. Some people will be able to adapt; others will suffer both physically and emotionally. We all need to seek the Lord and prepare both spiritually and physically for the coming collapse.

Yes, a few weeks ago a man was tossing empty gift wrapping paper tubes my way and I was catching them without even having to look. The holidays shall be anything but… America’s turkey has come home not to baste. God Bless, Daniel. No paper, No gifts. A confirmation I believe of what God has shown you.

This reminds me of Rick Wiles daugther’s dreams that she saw a fall scene where multiple dreams played out and tragedy striking the American people.

I’m pretty sure he outlines this in his Oct 17th 2014 broadcast with his friend Stephan from Panama.

Hi Paloma you have raised a great question that I wish so many others would sincerely ask: how do you know God’s voice as apposed to other voices? The thing that has helped me the most is keeping a reflective diary, or call it a journal. I use an A4 sized one page per day diary. This is helpful because it disciplines me to write something every day. Then on reflection, say each week, I go over what has been written and pray about it. Over time I learn to discern the voice of God by reflecting back. At the end of each year I spend two days going through every page and writing summaries month by month. Then I am in a better position to have confidence about bringing the word of the Lord to a person, a congregation, or to a nation. I hope this helps.

I had never thought about reflecting back and praying about it… and what better way to do that than to keep a journal! Thank you for your advice. It does help!
