A Great Storm is Now Upon Us


On August 28 2014, I dreamed I was alone in a barren desert plain that extended as far as I could see in all directions. I was outside without any shelter, but I had a couple of couches there. The sky became very dark and ominous from one end to the other, far beyond anything I have ever seen. Dark clouds were swirling around as the whole sky was filled with terrifying dark forces. A major storm was coming, but I knew it was bigger than a natural storm and was bringing far worse things than just bad weather, unleashing all sorts of evil upon the earth.

I looked up and saw very high up in the sky were long thin black strips, like thin banners, floating in the air. I did not know what they were, but I knew they were evil. I wanted to get away, but there seemed to be nowhere to go because it covered the whole land. So, I tried to hide on the ground next to my couches as if somehow they would protect me. I also had a set of keys, which I hid under the couch to protect them. However, I quickly realized I was not safe there, so I grabbed the keys and took off running as fast as I could to get away.

The scene changed and I found myself running up the stone steps to the front door of the little chapel at my old high school, so I used the keys to unlock the front doors to enter inside. As I did, I turned and saw two old friends of mine walking by, a mother and daughter. Then the mother walked up the steps and said to me, “The one who runs at the front of the pack…” Then I finished her sentence, “…sees what’s coming up ahead.” She nodded her head in agreement. That was the end of the dream.


I believe this dream reveals the time of great trouble coming upon the world prior to the return of the Lord. (Daniel 12:1, Matthew 24:4-31, Revelation 6-19) I believe He allowed me to experience a little of what it will feel like, the anguish, distress, consternation and bewilderment, which will be so intense, it will cause men to faint from fear of what’s coming. (Luke 21:25-26)

I knew the storm was unleashing great wickedness, covering the earth with darkness in both the spiritual and natural realms, filling the whole sky because this battle is against spiritual wickedness in the heavenly realm, not against flesh and blood. I believe the thin black strips floating way up in the sky represented dark spiritual powers in the heavenly places (Ephesians 6:12).

I felt vulnerable because I had no walls or roof to protect me, just two couches to comfort me, but they offered no protection. I believe they represented places we formerly found refuge, which gave us some temporary relief, but those former places of refuge will not be enough to get us through this storm.

I had the keys to unlock another place, but I couldn’t see it from where I was because it was in the unseen realm. God has already given us the keys to access the secret place of His presence, by the authority of the name of Jesus, which He gives to all who accept Him as Lord.

When I took off running, I did not even know where I was going because we don’t know the way to the secret place. (Psalm 31:20) We must go by faith, trusting our Father to somehow carry us there, and He always does when we run to Him. I had no idea how I found the chapel. I just started running and suddenly arrived there. My part was running to Him and He did the rest. Running up the stone steps of the chapel showed how God lifts us up on the solid rock. (Psalm 27:5) The chapel represented His sanctuary, the place of safety in the house of God. In that day, His presence will be the only safe place.

I believe I represented the remnant who arises during a time when the whole world is engulfed in darkness. We will see with clarity what is happening way up high in the heavenly realm, understanding both realms, aware of the darkness, but also knowing the way of escape, equipped with the keys to unlock the place of refuge. We will flee to His sanctuary and find protection. Even though great darkness will cover the earth, the Lord will arise on us and His glory will manifest in us so clearly, it will be seen by others around us. (Isaiah 60:2)

The woman who spoke to me has given me many prophetic words in the past, so it seemed appropriate she would bring me another word, but I believe her word was for everyone who draws close to God, confirming His promise to respond by drawing close to us. (James 4:8) The remnant runs at the front of the pack, ahead of the lukewarm who are distracted by other things, which is why so many are now receiving dreams and visions of what’s coming ahead.

God does not want us to be caught off guard, but to see what’s coming, so we can find refuge. (Proverbs 22:3) He wants to give us wisdom, discernment, light on our path, and insights into future things. (Proverbs 2:7-10, 4:18 and 8:20, Amos 3:7) As earthly parents, we would want to do the same for our children.

Scripture References:

For in the day of trouble He will conceal me in His tabernacle; in the secret place of His tent He will hide me; He will lift me up on a rock. (Psalm 27:5)

1 He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will abide in the shadow of the Almighty.
2 I will say to the Lord, “My refuge and my fortress, My God, in whom I trust!”
3 For it is He who delivers you from the snare of the trapper and from the deadly pestilence.
4 He will cover you with His pinions, and under His wings you may seek refuge; His faithfulness is a shield and bulwark.
5 You will not be afraid of the terror by night, or of the arrow that flies by day;
6 Of the pestilence that stalks in darkness, or of the destruction that lays waste at noon.
7 A thousand may fall at your side and ten thousand at your right hand, but it shall not approach you.
8 You will only look on with your eyes and see the recompense of the wicked.
9 For you have made the Lord, my refuge, even the Most High, your dwelling place.
10 No evil will befall you, nor will any plague come near your tent.
11 For He will give His angels charge concerning you, to guard you in all your ways.
12 They will bear you up in their hands, that you do not strike your foot against a stone.
13 You will tread upon the lion and cobra, the young lion and the serpent you will trample down.
14 “Because he has loved Me, therefore I will deliver him; I will set him securely on high, because he has known My name.
15 He will call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will rescue him and honor him.
16 With a long life I will satisfy him and let him see My salvation.” (Psalm 91:1-16)

Two weeks ago I woke up from a dream. In the dream there it was like the beginning of a hurricane. The winds were starting to blow and the rains were coming down real violently. When I awoke I kept hearing the word Prepare. Not only did I hear prepare but the word has flashed before me in a vision. I asked The Lord what does this mean. Tell the people they must prepare, they must be rooted and grounded in Biblical Sound Doctrine. Those who do not adhere to the warning they will be carried away by false teachings. People’s faith is going to be challenged. The last words I heard was I am coming quickly

Hi James,
It was strange I came across your post. I have had a lot going on spiritually lately. Close to two years ago I had some visions that at the time I thought were meant for me. About 2 weeks ago one of my visions reappeared and I heard “Tell them, Tell them all”. The voice repeated over and over again. I tell you this because my vision was also about a storm very similar to what you described. It encompassed everything. I was in a wooden boat in the middle of the ocean, the water was black. It was very dark and the storm was right in front of me. There was one lightning strike. It was coming closer and I was afraid. I turned around and Jesus was behind me, sitting in the boat. Then a loud booming voice said “A great storm is coming.” That was it. The visions I had prior all reflect the spiritual battle that is coming. It is almost here. Thank you for sharing this and may God help us all as we stand on the frontline.

Thanks for sharing your vision Tiffany. We are very close to seeing these things manifest now so it is time to sound the alarm!

In 1998 I had a dream that i was in a huge building with other people. I automatically knew they were Christians. They told me to stay with them I would be safe there. They said “A storm is coming.” I looked out a large window and saw a supernaturally dark ominous storm stretched from each side of the horizon. It complete flled the sky yet it was still some ways off. I turned from the window but when I looked back I saw hundreds of Chinese dragons filled the sky. It was literally just filled with them. I woke up and asked the Lord to interpret the dream for me if it was from Him. A day or two later there was a knock at my door. When I went to the door their was nobody there but a paper was stuck in the door. I opened the door and looked down the street. A woman was walking away and was already a few houses down . She turned and waved at me and resumed walking. I opened the paper. On the front was a babies face and a drawing of the earth. The paper began by requesting prayer to stop abortion. On the back it told.of a woman and her daughter having dreams of a coming storm. In the dream there were CHINESE TERRORISTS on American soil torturing and killing American citizens. It also spoke of nuclear blasts. My son was 7 years ok when this happened he will soon be 25. The storm is upon us!

God be praised for the many warnings HE has been sending to us these days. I also had 2 special dreams. I usually don`t have many dreams of the Lord but these were no doubt 2 of them. In the first I saw an awful storm coming ahead of me into my direction. I looked to the skies and the clouds were very high with incredible lightening, I´d say some 40 miles away. The lightening just didn’t stop happening but not falling down, they were IN the clouds. In my dream I got the understanding that it was a kind of “electromagnetic storm” moving very fast. I think these kind of storms are going to happen really physically and could be also in fulfilling to the Word of God “the power of heavens should be shaken. In the 2nd dream I was at a shore looking to the sea as a giant wave appeared, a Tsunami wave big like a building. I feared the wave for sure but at the same time I got excited because I got to understand that it was my chance to fulfill my call. I jumped on the top of the wave and start ridding on it. And so it will be not only with me but with all other children of God, that we will fear the signs which will be horrible but filled with the Holy Spirit and enjoying the Presence of Jesus with us we are coming to do greater things than HE did. It will be the time to overcome in the power of the Spirit of God each obstacle and to rid on the top of every killer wave. Because living means Jesus and dying is a profit.

Thanks! I wish I could say I am back but not really yet. I had to stop blogging to work on another project which is still a few months from being done. It was a big stretch for me to post even one article so far this year, but I hope to get back to it eventually.
