I had this dream in late 2007. I call it the Red Dragon dream.
I was looking down on a world map laid flat with the focus on America. I saw a drop of water that began to run over the cities and states of the United States on the map. As it moved, the drop magnified the names of the cities and states it went over. Then the drop of water turned red and became blood. Then it became a red dragon.
The drop of water that turned to blood reveals a time coming when there will be great anguish and bloodshed across our land. The attack did not come from the outside, but from the inside. The drop of water became a dragon because it is the dragon causing division and harm in our cities and states. As the drop of water runs over our cities and states our cities and states will be run over by the red dragon. There is a word play here, too, in run over to over run.
Jesus warned us about a time when even members of our own household would become our enemies. Our families are under attack. Our churches are hemorrhaging from the wounds of hirelings and heresies.
The idea of the water on the map brings to mind the deluge. As in the days of Noe’s flood, so shall it be at the coming of the Son of man. Evil and wickedness abound now. In fact, we are inundated with wave after wave of it. We have only to consider the martyrs and the deaths of the innocent, and all that is in between, to realize that The Second Coming must be very soon.
What can we do? Prayer is available to all of us. If there be any that haven’t talked to Jesus lately, repent and pray. If there be any that haven’t made a decision, make it today and repent and pray. Choose life that it may be well you and your family.
For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High. (Isaiah 14:13,14)
For there are certain men crept in unawares,who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ. (Jude 1:4)

Then said he unto the disciples, it is impossible but the offenses will come: but woe unto him, through whom they come! It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones. (Luke 17:1-2)
But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. (Matthew 24:37)
Jesus wept. (John 11:35)

The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise. (Psalm 51:17)
My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocated with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous. (1 John 2:1)
If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray and seek my face, and turn from their wicked way; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. (2 Chronicles 7:14)
But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them that despitefully use you, and persecute you. (Matthew 5:44)
I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessingand cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live. (Deuteronomy 30:19)

Karen Sue started out to become a master teacher in the Child Development field until one day a phone call came that changed all of that. It was a call for help that led her into advocacy for children and victims of violent crime. She believes that is where her education really started. It was during that time she cried out to Jesus Christ and was saved.
Later she worked in skilled nursing with a focus on gerontology. She then moved into dementia care and found her niche with opportunities to counsel and teach in the area of therapeutic activities and activities of daily living. Advocacy in both arenas led her to a closer relationship with the Lord.
She now devotes her time to intercessory prayer and Bible study, often led by dreams that both quicken her and direct her prayer life. Karen has opted not to share her last name.
