In a dream two nights ago, I saw a terrible wide-scale civil war between blacks and whites raging throughout the United States. For whatever reason, none of us seemed to have access to guns, so the war was being fought with knives and it was gruesome and bloody. The fighting seemed to go on and on with many casualties. I recognized the knife I was holding as a steak knife from my own kitchen.
At one point, a man in our camp was very troubled by what he saw, so he started questioning whether or not it was right to participate in the fighting, even for self defense. His views were not well received so there was division even within our own group.
Although I was participating in this war in the dream, I would not do so in real life. I believe the purpose for this dream was to sound the alarm so we can avoid this tragic scenario by recognizing we are being led like sheep to the slaughter by demonic entities seeking our destruction. By getting us to kill each other, the culprits operating behind the scenes to pit us against one another keep themselves hidden while we do the killing for them.
What I saw would not be possible in a nation walking in keen discernment, the kind of discernment which God has promised to give to all those who walk uprightly before Him. (Proverbs 2:7, 2:9-10, 8:20, 9:9, 15:28, Ezekiel 44:23) It could only happen if we are deceived, believing Satan’s lies, which are daily bombarding us in the news media, movies, TV programs, government policies, and sometimes even coming from our pulpits. Satan does not care how he divides us. Any topic is fine with him, whether it’s our race, income level, religion, political views, sexual orientation, or anything else. These emotionally charged topics are continuously presented to us, demanding us to choose sides, but it’s just bait to divert our attention away from the only choice that really matters, Christ or antichrist. If we can keep our focus on the right topic, we can defeat Satan’s schemes because he only advances under cover of darkness, so by exposing him to the light as our true enemy, we are united together stronger than ever before, so his schemes are defeated and we can avoid what I saw.
Those who live in the realm of their intellect are continuously engaging in endless debates that ultimately accomplish very little and more often just cause division, but those who live in the realm of the spirit soar high above all those earthly things to connect with others on a heart to heart level that always produces good fruit because they are empowered by the irresistible love of God.
