My third Islamic invasion dream occurred on 11-22-15. Jihadist invaders were now occupying my “homeland,” my father’s land where I was born and raised. And so I fled north, searching for a safe haven in the neighborhood.
First I stopped by my nephew’s home where the orchards had once stood to see if they had room to hide us, my family and me.
As I walked up the steps to enter their home, I met my nephew’s ex-wife and her mother coming down the steps, and I stopped for a moment and spoke with them. They were in a hurry to leave, and seemed oblivious to the danger we were all in. What I most remember about them is how they loved more than anything to bargain shop, hitting all the Black Friday sales.
And so I left them and walked further north, to the homes down that stretch of land where my cousins used to live before they all tragically died – still looking for a sanctuary for my family. Of utmost concern to me was my beautiful young daughter and how vulnerable she was to being captured by those barbarians and sold into slavery. Women like me, too mature to serve as sex slaves, were thrown in mass graves and buried alive. So we had to find a safe haven.
You Will Observe Only With Your Eyes
As in dream two, I was on my father’s homeland, symbolizing American soil. Jihadists were confiscating property and wreaking havoc. Like Christians throughout the Middle East and elsewhere across the globe, we were now fleeing genocide. Strangely, I didn’t feel terrified, but kept walking north, seeking old familiar places to hide. I didn’t actually see the calamity up close and personal, but knew in the dream what was taking place around me. The scene reminded me of Psalm 91.
A thousand my fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you. You will only observe with your eyes and see the punishment of the wicked. (Psalm 91:7-8)
All That Can Be Shaken is Now Being Shaken
The ex wife and mother-in-law of my nephew represent the typical American Christian, most of whom are oblivious to the dangers we face, as they are too enamored with consumerism and materialism to see reality.
When I mentioned Black Friday in the dream text, I was reminded of the financial markets’ shaking, and how all the signs point to a crash. Everything that can be shaken is now being shaken. And only those awake and aware see danger on the horizon.
Walking North among the Cloud of Witnesses
Walking north and seeking familiar faces and places symbolizes the search for spiritual direction from the Lord, looking to Him as our hiding place. Looking to Him for refuge. He is our only hope in times like these.
The cousins who’d died represent the “cloud of witnesses” spoken of in Hebrews 12:1. The concern over my daughter’s safety from the barbarians is a sign urging us to pray over our children with more fervor.
The Absence of Fruit
In both dreams two and three, I noted orchards. In dream two: “I was at my father’s birthplace, across the orchards…” And in dream three: “First I stopped by my nephew’s home (where the orchards had once stood)…” When I was growing up we had fruit orchards that bore apples, peaches, pears, and plums. The absence of these is crucial, as they represent good fruits. America has become like the fig tree Jesus cursed because it bore no good fruit. We ceased bearing high-quality fruit long ago, ever since abandoning God.
Therefore, He has declared judgment upon our nation which sanctions and protects the unfruitful works of darkness. Where we once saw his blessings and guardianship, we now see signs that his hedge of protection has been removed, as calamity and chaos ensues.
In what ways do you see God’s hand of judgment upon our nation?
