I had a very strong dream on the night of June 15 2015 about an upcoming interest rate decision by the Federal Reserve Bank. The Lord is really bringing it to mind as this next meeting looms closer.
Note: Although the dream did not reveal any specific timing, the next interest rate decision from the Federal Reserve is scheduled for tomorrow December 16 2015.
Here is what I saw in my dream:
I am seated in what appears to be a briefing room listening to a well-known TV minister speak. It seems he is making an announcement or having a press conference to discuss his current physical condition. He is pale, emaciated and bandages can be seen under his clothing. His face is gaunt and his eyes are dull and somewhat glazed.
As the scene opens he is already speaking and saying something to the effect “It’s been a terrible ordeal, but I have survived. By God’s grace, I have pulled through.”
I realize he is referring to the state of his ministry and this is being represented by his physical appearance. His income from donations and goodwill toward his ministry have suffered greatly. End of scene one.
Then a second scene begins and I am seeing an episode of the TV show The Waltons from almost 40 years ago. In this episode John-Boy Walton (a budding journalist) wins a contest and the prize is to cover a major news event. This happens to be the zeppelin Hindenburg’s arrival in New Jersey in 1937. Of course, this was one of the most famous explosions of all time.
Then I saw John-Boy return home, but he was hesitant to share his experiences. When pressed, he shouted, “You want to know what happened? I’ll tell you what happened! We were all standing there staring at this huge thing as if it’s from God and it blew up and a lot of people died! That’s what happened!” That was the end of my dream.
Upon waking I began to attempt to connect these two scenes. I knew this was about coming judgment and a crash, but why the Hindenburg? The minister in scene one was a wonderful grace teacher whom I have supported in the past, but he is known for stating “God’s not mad. He’s not even upset.”
I have not seen him take into account that one purpose of judgment is God’s mercy not to allowing us to continue in our transgressions. As I prayed over this dream I realized this minister was making his announcement after judgment of our nation had begun and his financial contributions and his reputation had both taken a severe downturn. He and his ministry were pretty banged up, but had survived. He had no answer to explain the events that were befalling our country.
The Hindenburg explosion was obviously about a crash. In dream interpretation, I always teach people to ask why this and not that? Why not an airplane or something more contemporary crashing? I try to be very objective when interpreting my own dreams. I have heard Rick Joyner kidding the late great prophet Bob Jones about Bob interpreting his own personal dreams, so I always want to err on the side of caution.
For this reason I contacted a pastor friend of mine with a strong prophetic anointing. As I have taught dream interpretation in his church, we have co-labored for many years in the study of dreams. We agreed this was about judgment and an economic “crash and burn” but some of the symbolism seemed hidden.
Within a few hours he called me and said check out today’s Drudge Report. One of the lead articles was The Fed’s Worst Nightmare – The Ghost of 1937. It showed a photo of the Hindenburg exploding! This was an article linked to an article on CNBC, which stated:
“Many policymakers and market observers assert that the risk of the Fed raising rates too early exceeds that of moving too late. This is the specter of 1937, when the Fed raised rates prematurely and exacerbated the Great Depression.”
This was exactly what the dream was prophesying. The Federal Reserve would begin to raise rates and judgment would begin through an economic crash in our nation. As I had never heard of the Hindenburg Omen or the fears that a rate hike would again create a “depression within a depression” as in 1937, I feel this was a pure revelatory dream. The specter of 1937 is upon us with this next Fed rate hike.
I now feel an unction that time has run out, that those in the body of Christ who believe our Lord no longer judges nations will suffer greatly as will mainstream America. I no longer see us falling off a cliff and having a complete systemic crash immediately, but I do feel this will be a major downturn. This will begin a catastrophic series of events which will continue through the end of next year.
