On the morning of March 3rd, 2017, I awoke at 3:53 am from a terrible dream. I believe it was from the Lord. I have a peace about it and I have increased in knowledge about it over time (it has become more vivid). It does not violate scripture and it agrees with the Rhema the Lord has revealed to His servants.
I was standing in a large formation of several hundred military personnel. It was summer. We were in a run-down industrial complex of some sort. The roof had failed but there were some rusty rafters left.
The troop commander told us to do a left-facing movement (dress…right dress movement…but turning away from the stage, which was on the west side of the complex to the left instead of the right). So we turned and faced left (south). We stayed there for a while. People began to chatter that the troop commander had forgotten to complete the rest of the facing movements. I looked over at the troop commander after a while, to get his attention to remind him to finish what he started. The troop commander came up to me and arrogantly reminded me he was in charge of this formation, not me. Even though he (and everyone) knew he had forgotten, he didn’t call for us to return to the front of the stage. So there we stood, still turned to the left (instead of the right as is normal)
It was then I noticed an appearance of very dark clouds on the eastern horizon. I could tell a bad storm was coming. I remember thinking: “Well, that’s what you get for humiliating the weather guy!” …ha ha ha
This storm was different. It was moving very rapidly; more rapidly than I have ever seen a severe thunderstorm move. The sky was boiling and getting very black. People were beginning to notice and act very nervous. Then I heard the roar. It was off in the distance. It sounded like a distant freight train, much like what they say an intense tornado sounds like. It increased rapidly in volume as the storm approached. Then it became deafening and the storm hit will full force.
It was a very strong wind. I began shouting at people to take cover. People all around me began to duck and cover…falling to the ground to hide from the wind and debris that was now flying all around, but I remained standing.
It only took about 20 seconds from the time I first noticed the dark clouds until the full fury of the storm was upon us. Then I heard a “POP!” I thought for a moment it was something being destroyed by the wind. Then another “POP” then another. It only took two or three pops until I realized it was semi-automatic weapons fire.
I turned to look at where it was coming from. It was coming from a balcony located on the north end of the complex. There, a young woman (black hair in a ponytail) was firing into the crowd directly below her (to my north). I knew this was a terrorist attack. She was firing very methodically…choosing her targets, not spraying randomly.
I remember thinking she looked like an anarchist and I was amazed she was not Islamic, but white or Hispanic. I began looking for cover. I noticed a building about 50 yards away. I began running in that direction. I remember having three thoughts as I ran:
1. Is she a lone wolf? Is there someone else waiting on the other side of the building to shoot people fleeing? I had to take that chance because if I remained where I was, I would surely die.
2. She WILL SEE ME! I thought as I ran. Everyone else was still on the ground and it seemed that only a few (out of hundreds) even noticed the attack. Everyone else was still distracted and in fear of the storm. They could only handle one emergency at a time and they had prioritized the storm and ignored the shooter. So, since I was the only one running there was ZERO DOUBT she would see me, turn towards me, and kill me. I just knew she was going to see me and kill me as I ran for cover.
3. WHERE ARE THE SECURITY FORCES? I remember wondering as I ran and contemplated my death that the cops weren’t firing back. Here we were in a group of hundreds of military personnel, some of which were armed, and nobody was doing anything about it. How did she get PAST the guards? Why aren’t they engaging her? Why is nobody doing anything?
It was a helpless feeling, but I ran, leaping over people, almost running on top of them. The building got closer and closer. It felt like I was running in slow motion with my eyes on her the entire time, just waiting on her to spot me. As I got within ten feet of the building, I was amazed I had gone unnoticed and it looked like I would find protection behind the building. I looked forward down the alley for another shooter, but saw nobody. I got closer to the building and thought: “ I can’t believe I’m going to make it! How did she not see me?” I dove behind the corner of the building and woke up immediately. It was as if when I dove, I dove from my dream into being wide awake.
I sat on the edge of the bed and looked at the clock. It was 3:53 am. I thought for a second, “Wow.” My heart was pounding. I laid back down and tried to go back to sleep, but could not. The overwhelming urge to write it in my journal forced me to get up, so I began to write. What you have read is from that journal, but now other details have been added as I have reflected on the dream.
I believe this was a warning from the Lord. After some prayer and contemplation, I believe I have a PRELIMINARY idea as to what the Lord is trying to say.
There is a storm coming. It will hit quickly and come out of nowhere. It will be totally unexpected and catch everyone off guard.
In the middle of the storm, enemies of this country (anarchists, extremists and Islamic terrorists) will take advantage of the confusion, systematically bringing even more devastation to this country. They will infiltrate large gatherings of people and kill many very systematically.
The military will be powerless to stop the terrorist attacks. They will be so concerned with the storm and the devastation caused by it, they will not be concerned with the attacks and won’t be able to stop them.
God’s people will be supernaturally protected and hidden from the enemy and the storm. The enemy will not see them. They will pass through the danger like CHRIST did when they were attempting to stone Him.
There is a great storm of judgment coming to this country. What now seems orderly will turn to chaos. It will be quickly come upon us. The nation will not escape, but God’s people (the TRUE bride of Christ) will be protected.
This dream is in line with other dreams I have had. Here are a selected few “Cliffs-notes” from those dreams:
20 December 2016: I was outside…in a city…and military fighter jets…F-16’s and F-18’s…were filling the sky. Then, one by one, they started bursting into flames and falling to the ground. There were explosions in the sky and planes hitting the ground. Some were on fire when they hit the ground (falling through the sky while burning) and some blew up when they hit the ground.
6 January 2017: I was standing at a desk, leaning over looking at maps. A friend of mine (who I am stationed with) came up to me and leaned over to whisper in my ear.
He said, “The rumor mill is they are going to declare Martial Law. It’s going to happen on May 24th (or perhaps it was March, seemed like spring/summer time but a little fuzzy). Looks like we will be in charge of crowd control.”
28 September 2016: I had a conversation about how to hide; specifically how to hide Christians from persecution. We discussed how it used to be you could walk out in that thicket and hide…and nobody would find you. It was so dense that not even dogs could get through it and a determined man could easily hide in there from authorities and not be found. However, that was not the case these days. We talked about how today a man hiding in that dense thicket would easily be spotted by our recon aircraft using thermal sensors. I remember the phrase, “They would stick out like a sore thumb” when an aircraft flew overhead to scan the area.
The scene shifted and I was in a shopping mall. There were windows and passers-by could see in. It was, however, an underground church. We were certainly hiding in plain sight of everyone, but our actions did not betray who we were. Our enemies will seek to destroy us, but God will hide us in plain sight, just like He did His Son. We will walk through the crowds unnoticed and towards safety. This does not mean, however, that we will always be safe. Just as they eventually killed Jesus Christ and the prophets, so shall they kill us. However, that timing is determined by God and until that time, we will walk through the midst of the enemy, unseen and without fear.
3 August 2016: A Word from God (NOT A DREAM) – “Thus says the Lord, My hand of vengeance is upon this land. My hand is upon the church and My hand is upon the fields. Your harvests will fail. My hand is in this election. I will accomplish My will for My glory. I will not be mocked – whatsoever a nation sows, so shall it reap. The US has sown destruction – it has sown violence – debauchery – lasciviousness – and sin. It will reap that reward. I am the Lord, I will not be mocked. My name will be exalted in all the Land. America will crumble. It is My will. I will establish it.
4 April 2015: “Behold a revival is coming. I will pour out My Spirit. Do you want to be a part of that? Confess your sin, your collective sin of indifference.”
4 June 2015: A Word from God (NOT A DREAM) – “Judgment is coming. It cannot be delayed. It will not be stopped. There will be no reprieve. Revival is not coming until after judgment.”
Judgment is coming to the church (Dream of 8 May 2015; May 14th 2016 (on the Agape Home Fellowship webpage)
30 July 2015: A Word from God (NOT A DREAM) – “There is (soon) coming a time when the people’s (lost) hearts will be turned towards God by calamity. Embrace it and be ready for it. A time of great evangelistic opportunity is near.”
These are just a selection of the Rhema Words and Dreams I have had. They agree completely with my most recent dream, which I am calling “The Coming Storm.”
Judgment is coming. Be found praying.
