In a dream I received on June 19, 2016, aman escorted me into a wide-open field in a large valley. In the center of the field at the lowest point of the valley was a large, flat, solid rock about one-foot high and about fifty feet across. We stepped up onto it and looked around in all directions at the rolling green hills on all sides.
Then I saw very large crowds of people gathering, way too many to count, many thousands. Many of them were seated on the ground while more were just arriving and finding places to sit, but even as they got situated, their eyes stayed focused intently on us like they didn’t want to miss anything, even though we were just standing there doing nothing. They were hungry to receive, so their faith created an atmosphere of great expectation that we were about to give them an important message.
When I saw this, I was concerned and perplexed because I knew I was not the kind of person that should be on a stage of any kind. I was sure they were gathering to hear someone else. So, I turned to the man who had escorted me there and told him, “I think there must be a mistake because I don’t belong here.”
He didn’t say anything. He just turned and looked at the crowds and pointed to them in all directions. Then he directed me to also turn and look all around, 360 degrees. For as far as my eyes could see, multitudes and multitudes of people were all looking at us, waiting eagerly to hear. That was the end of the dream.
I believe the man who escorted me was the Holy Spirit because I never saw His face, which is how He often appears in dreams. The platform made of solid rock represents the Word of God, the foundation for all our messages. I felt there was a mistake made because speaking to a crowd is way out of my comfort zone. Words have always escaped me when I’ve needed them, so I wanted to find the exit, but we were surrounded.
This dream reveals the assignments God will soon be giving His remnant army of forerunners will stretch our faith by putting us in positions that require more talents, gifts, and abilities than we possess, leaving us no choice but to cry out to Him for help. (Luke 12:11-12) The same point was illustrated in my remnant dream with me being one of the speakers. As He has done many times in the past, God is again going to use the weak things to demonstrate His power and the foolish things to demonstrate His wisdom, so everyone can see only He could have done it. (1 Corinthians 1:26-29, 2 Corinthians 12:9) For example, He instructed Gideon to pare down his army from 32,000 men to just 300, even though they were going against a far larger army of Midianites. He explained to Gideon, “The people who are with you are too many for Me to give the Midianites into their hands, lest Israel claim glory for itself against Me, saying, ‘My own hand has saved me.’’” (Judges 7:2 NKJV)
Surely many of those who turned back from Gideon’s army were stronger, faster, and smarter than the 300 who remained, but God used those who were small in numbers, but great in faith, to demonstrate His power so everyone would know the victory came from Him alone. There is no other explanation for their victory, just as there will be no other explanation for ours.
God Provides Help:
Since I started Z3news.com in November 2012, it has grown dramatically. Earlier this year, we passed one million page views per month. We currently get about 10,000 unique visitors each day. In March 2016, we reached the point where I was no longer able to keep up with the emails, comments, and new posts, so I had to make a choice where to spend my limited time. I decided to focus on keeping up with the comments and new posts while letting the emails go. There was no way to do it all. As a result, hundreds of emails submitted on our contact form have never even been read because there is only one of me and not enough hours in the day. I don’t like ignoring any emails, but that is our situation.
Handling the increased traffic would not have been possible if not for help sent by God in the form of Rob Perrett. Rob has volunteered as our website administrator. He is an Australian citizen currently living in Thailand where he works as a missionary. He is a very rare individual because he gives everything he has for God, working very hard while asking for nothing in return. He has spent lots of time improving our site, but has never once asked for any financial compensation. Even when I have sent donations to his ministry, he has reminded me he is not working for money, which is truly rare!
Earlier this year, Rob went home to Australia for a few weeks to visit his family and speak in a few churches where he saw the power of God move mightily. While he was home, God instructed him to devote even more of his time working on Z3news.com. By faith, Rob agreed to do that, but he immediately came under attack from Satan. Soon after he returned to Thailand, he nearly died from a sudden bout of heat exposure while out exercising at night. A friend prayed in the spirit to revive him from the point of death. Immediately after recovering from that, he endured another attack on his health in the form of food poisoning that has developed a parasitic infection in his intestines, causing him to be weak and unproductive. He continues to receive medical treatment for those symptoms. If Rob was an old man, perhaps these attacks on his health would seem more believable, but he is only in his early thirties and physically very fit. Please pray for him!
I believe the timing of the attacks on Rob are no coincidence because it started as soon as he stepped out in faith to obey God. Needless to say, our plans to add a forum and other improvements to our site have been delayed.
Not Led by Money:
I believe Rob is the perfect fit for Z3 News because he and I are like-minded, both willing to step out by faith to do what God has given us even when there is no financial compensation. I have been working on Z3 full time since November 2012 with the exception of part of 2014 when I had to complete another project. The site received zero financial support in 2012, 2013, and 2014. In late 2015, we received enough donations to support my family for two weeks, leaving the other 50 weeks for our finances to be depleted.
Jesus instructed us, “Give, and it will be given to you. They will pour into your lap a good measure—pressed down, shaken together, and running over. For by your standard of measure it will be measured to you in return.” (Luke 6:38)
I believe that and try to live by it, which is demonstrated by the fact there are no advertisements or any products for sale on our site. Everything we have is given away for free. However, by April 2016, after several years of working full time on this site, we reached the point where we could not continue financially. It did not even enter my mind to ask for support because Luke 6:38 does not say anything about having to beg. It simply says if we give it will be given back to us in return. Then someone posted a comment about making a donation and my reply revealed the difficulty of our financial condition. Other people saw my comment and spread the word until a rally of support was poured out and we were bailed out of a big hole.
That was three months ago. Soon after that, our donations dropped back down almost to what they were before April. Despite getting 10,000 unique visitors per day, we typically receive between zero and two donations per day, but despite it being such a small number of supporters, they have provided us with enough money to cover about one third of my monthly expenses, not including any of Rob’s expenses. The good news is it would only take a few more supporters to keep Z3 going.
It remains a mystery to me how we get from where we are today to what I saw in my dream, but I believe God has a plan.
To help clarify our vision for Z3 News, here is a list of things Rob and I would like to do:
- New Forum Software – The number of comments shared on Z3 has increased dramatically during the past year. Today we have a thriving community, which keeps going strong even without any new articles posted. We are hoping to add a true forum, which will make it much easier to follow these conversations and join in because they will be organized by topic rather than comments spread across many different articles. Finding the right forum, adding it, and maintaining it will all require manpower, which we do not currently have. Rob has already done a lot of research looking for the right software and we recently spent a few hours discussing it on Skype.
- Sending Emails – A couple of years ago, I added a mailing list sign up form in the right column on every page. So far, about 5,000 people have signed up to receive our emails, but they have never received anything because we have never had enough manpower to set up a mailing system and send them. I would like to be able to send previews of excerpts from my new books as well as other insights not shared online. We are now trying to find the best way to send our mailings. I have been adding subscribers to our Google Group, but they only allow me to add 100 per day so it will take a few more weeks just to get everyone added. Meanwhile, Rob is looking into other ways to get them sent. I believe the day is coming when sites like ours will not be tolerated by our government. When that happens, email contact will become vitally important.
- More New Posts – With so many things happening in the world today, I would like to be able to provide more information and prophetic insights into current events with more new posts, but we need more manpower to do that.
- Replies to Visitor Emails – As stated above, I have not been able to read or reply to hundreds of emails sent from our contact form. I would like to be able to keep up with that, but it requires more manpower.
- New Video Content – I want to convert some of our articles into videos, especially ones that have required lots of research. Some of the end-time dreams would also be powerful in video format. Professional quality videos could reach a much larger audience, which could include Podcasts and YouTube. For an example of an article I think would work in video format, please see: The Rider on the White Horse is Now Riding Across America.
New Books Coming Soon:
At first, I assumed my dream was referring to more people coming to Z3 News, but then I realized that might not be the correct interpretation because it was never mentioned in the dream. I believe it might refer to Z3, but it depends on whether or not the Z3 community chooses to support the vision. Otherwise it could also refer to the audience of people who will be reading my future books, which I have already started but not yet completed because so much of my time has been devoted to the website. I have always wanted to be able to give my books away for free, but the gap between my income and expenses is now forcing me to reconsider that approach.
I am excited about my new books. The first one is about the future of end-time believers, including lots of dreams and insights I have not been able to share on the website because the articles are just too long for a blog format. Here are a few examples of what is coming in this book, which I am hoping to complete within the next few weeks.
- I received a powerful dream in which I participated in meetings with other end-time believers in the future. I saw how we are going to be connected together like never before, how repentance is going to be one of our top priorities, and how we are going to operate as one body like nothing I have ever seen before. Our unity brought an anointing that was also stronger than anything I have ever experienced. I saw an army of young people totally sold out for God. After I woke up, the anointing that was in those meetings was still on me very strong!
- In January 2016, I shared a blog post regarding an old Indian Chief who visited me in a dream. Many people seemed to connect with that message. However, a couple of days after I posted that I received the complete interpretation of what the Chief was saying. His message is vitally important for preparing us for the days ahead. I believe these insights will be a great blessing to many people. This is one of the most powerful messages I have ever received and I know it is going to make a big impact in the lives of many people.
- I received several dreams showing me how we will be operating in the days ahead as the battle lines are drawn between our government and true believers. I saw us doing espionage, supernatural witnessing, and supernaturally avoiding arrest.
- Since I saw an increased focus on righteousness in the days ahead, I studied this topic in depth to find out what it is and what it is not. I scoured the whole Bible and found 204 blessings promised to every believer who walks in righteousness. I studied these scriptures in the original Hebrew and Greek and then re-wrote amplified versions of each of them to state their full meaning as clear as possible. I grouped them by topic, including 26 blessings on our relationship with God, 22 blessings of increase, 21 blessings of protection, 11 blessings on our children, 19 blessings on our character, 9 blessings on our relationships with other people, and many more blessings.
- I saw a training center for end-time believers where we will learn how to operate in the power of the Holy Spirit like never before. I saw a remnant of these believers moving on to advanced levels, even learning to fly as identified in Isaiah 60:8.
- I saw a greater level of the glory of God coming upon His people, causing us to do great exploits unlike anything ever seen before. I then studied the scriptures and found evidence supporting this. Then I collected prophetic visions and words from many people who have received insights into this topic.
- Lots more than I can list here.
While I am excited about writing this book, I hope to keep Z3 News going at the same time, but that is only possible with the support of the Z3 community. I greatly appreciate the support of everyone who has faithfully stood with us. We would never have made it this far without you.
Many of our churches are not ready for what is coming in the very near future. Even worse, they are not helping others to prepare. Compromise has become normal and the message of repentance has been almost completely silenced. I believe God is raising up alternative ministries like Z3 News to prepare His people for the days ahead. If our messages are bearing witness in your spirit, I hope you will consider becoming part of the vision God has given us by supporting us on a regular monthly basis so we can take this ministry to the next level. Visit our donations page to find out how to donate. Where we go from here is up to you. Thanks!
