In 2016, I shared a dream I received about an amazing horse. In that post, I was still wondering how and when it might be fulfilled. This post explains how it was fulfilled through a new book God gave me to write. The following is chapter one of “Remnant.”
On December 5 2015, I dreamed it was almost Christmas, which it was. My wife and I were told a Christmas gift was going to be delivered to our home and it would be like a singing telegram delivery, which would include animals.
We were in our great room discussing our plans to get together with our friends and family for the holidays. Our great room is right next to our front door and we kept thinking we heard the doorbell ringing. Each time it rang, we kept on talking like we didn’t hear it, but then we thought we heard it again. It was like it wasn’t registering for some reason, so we kept dismissing it. After several rings, my wife finally said, “Wasn’t that the doorbell?”
I replied, “Oh yeah, I think it was.”
I went to the door, but when I opened it, I saw a guy already going down our front steps, giving up on us answering. He was wearing an elf costume with a little elf hat and vest. He also had a full head of brown hair, like real elves have.
I asked, “Can I help you?”
He said, “Yes, we have a very special delivery for you. Can you please come around to the side of the house?”
Then I remembered the word about our special Christmas delivery. I had forgotten all about it! I called my wife and we both started walking around to the side of our house, which is where our driveway is. As soon as we went around the corner, but still not to where we could see the whole driveway, we saw the most amazing, majestic, beautiful horse I have ever seen. He was standing near the corner of our house, so we saw him before we even made it all the way around to the side, but I somehow knew there were more animals around the corner.
Our yard is filled with trees so he was standing in an area that is usually shaded, but a beam of sunlight was shining right on him, illuminating him in all his glory. When we saw him, he lifted his head and looked right at us. He was huge and muscular with long blond hair covering his body, grown out a couple of inches, with every hair perfectly in place. He had long white hair on his mane, tail, and feet, longer than horses usually have and all perfectly combed and blowing in a gentle breeze. Not only was he beautiful, but we sensed there was something sweet and loving about him. We understood we were going to get to keep him for some time so we could share him with our friends and family. We were so excited about that because we knew they would be just as amazed as we were.
Then the scene changed and I saw a short vision of us telling all our friends and family members, including friends we had not seen in many years since we moved away from where we used to live. Then I was back, beholding this beautiful horse and overwhelmed by a sense of awe when I suddenly woke up and was wide awake. That was the end of the dream.
Singing is a dream symbol for prophecy and horses often symbolize messages because riders on horses have delivered messages throughout history. So, I believe this amazing horse represented an important prophetic message God would soon be giving me.
Barely hearing the doorbell ringing was a warning for us to pay extra close attention so we don’t miss this important delivery. The elf coming to our door showed this message would be delivered during the Christmas season.
Horses are also known for their power and beauty. We live in horse country where we often see beautiful horses, but this one was beyond earthly beauty, showing this prophetic message would come from heaven and it would be very beautiful, amazing and powerful.
I saw we were going to be able to keep this horse for some time so we could share it with others, confirming the horse represents a powerful prophetic message from heaven that God wants to share as a gift for His people, give us amazing new insights from heaven. My short vision showing this message going beyond our current circle of friends was another confirmation God wants this message to be shared far and wide.
As Christmas day approached, it happened just like the dream showed because our sense of hearing seemed very dull. I was expecting something to happen, but had no idea what. I even wondered if an elf might show up at our door with some sort of delivery, but Christmas day arrived and no deliveries came. The only thing that happened even remotely like the dream was a Christmas gift we received from my wife’s sister, an all-expense paid trip to visit her and her husband where we used to live, the same place I saw in the dream. They suggested we come in July, so I wondered if somehow the dream would be fulfilled at that time because our family had previously exchanged gifts in July and even joked about it being Christmas in July.
We scheduled our trip for the last weekend in July, but ultimately had to reschedule it for the next weekend, the first weekend in August. Our whole family went and had a great time. We saw our old friends, which was great, but nothing unusual happened, so I concluded the dream must be fulfilled some other way, but I did not know how.
A few days after we got back home, I started writing this book to share a powerful prophetic dream I had received two days before Christmas, December 23 2015, revealing a move of God coming upon a righteous remnant. The dream had made such a great impact on me, I had been thinking about it ever since. I knew it was from heaven and I knew God wanted me to share it, but had not connected it with the first dream, but as soon as I started writing, I realized the second dream was the message of the majestic horse. God had delivered it right on time, two days before Christmas, but it took me over seven months to realize it. Like the elf walking away from our door, I had nearly missed the delivery.
Just as I was excited to share the amazing horse with everyone, I have been excited to share what I saw in this second dream. Just as I saw the amazing horse being shared beyond our friends and family, I believe the message from the second dream will be shared far beyond our friends and family.
Most dreams just start at the beginning, but this one required another dream to announce its’ arrival. I’ve never heard of anything like that before, but I believe it shows how important this message is to God. He wants His people to receive these amazing revelations as a gift from Him.
Living the Dream:
This was by far the most powerful dream I have ever received, not just because of what I saw, but also because of the powerful presence of God I encountered during the dream and after I woke up.
In the majestic horse dream, my wife and I were ourselves, we looked like ourselves and we were in our house, which means it was intended for us personally, but in this dream, we were not ourselves. We both looked like super models because this message was not about us personally, but for all who are part of God’s righteous remnant. I believe our super model appearance showed the fulfillment of God’s promises in us, the completion of the transformation of the person God is molding us to be.
I call it “living the dream” because every area of our life was so intensely wonderful. I had such a passion and love for my wife. I intensely adored everything about her.
The same thing was happening in my ministry. I had a real heart for God and for people and a real genuine heart for repenting in every area of my life. I felt such a deep conviction of my sins, deep conviction of wanting to be right with God. It was like no matter where I went, I just cried out to God. I just wanted to be right with Him. I put aside everything else to know Him. And it was highly contagious wherever I went, spreading to other people and causing them to repent too.
I attended many powerful meetings with many others who shared this same hunger for God. Every meeting was packed to the max with young people, teenagers and young adults, and it was standing room only. Even up in the balcony, every seat was filled and along the front of the balcony, I saw them sitting on the floor in a long row along the railings with their feet dangling down. They were completely consumed with God.
I knew we all had this in common, we had completely emptied ourselves until there was nothing left but empty vessels for God to fill. This was especially true for these young people. God was everything to them, their one and only desire.
I have been in lots of great meetings before and experienced powerful moves of God, but this was unlike anything I have ever seen before. For one thing, we were truly one body, which is almost impossible to adequately describe. This process of emptying ourselves of ourselves and being filled up with the presence of God had resulted in a powerful transformation in our inner man, causing us to be filled with a higher purpose, a divine purpose, no longer controlled by our selfish human nature, so when we all came together, we were united and joined together in such a powerful and glorious way that I could sense what was going on in them and I knew they could sense what was in me too. Our awareness level between us was so clear, it was almost like we were inside each other, like we were all part of one living organism, not just a bunch of individuals who happened to be meeting in the same place.
We were so filled up with the love of God that His love joined us together as one, so we had great love for one another, genuinely caring for one another and being attentive to the needs of each other and not just thinking about our own needs. I believe it was the fulfillment of what the Lord Jesus prayed when He said, “I do not ask on behalf of these alone, but for those also who believe in Me through their word; that they may all be one; even as You, Father, are in Me and I in You, that they also may be in Us, so that the world may believe that You sent Me.” (John 17:20-21)
I saw the unity He described. We were all in agreement, in perfect unity, with one unanimous cry of our heart, the cry of repentance. With everything in us, we longed to be right with God in every area. Our hunger for more of Him consumed us so much that we constantly cried out to be right with Him, turning away from anything that displeased Him. I saw us walking around during these meetings, weeping openly as we cried out for more of Him. Repentance was the overwhelming dominant theme in everything we did because we wanted to remove anything that separated us from Him.
Since we were so closely connected to each other, whatever one person did, made an impact on the rest of us. So, when one person came under conviction for their sins it immediately spread to others causing a chain reaction, which caused others to start repenting too. Everything we did was very contagious and spread quickly throughout the whole place!
As we became filled with more of Him, more of His love flowed through us to others, which caused us to notice and genuinely appreciate little things about others we had previously failed to notice or appreciate. We even gained a new perspective on their weaknesses, which had previously annoyed us, so they became genuinely adorable to us. With this great love abounding in us, we became rich in ways words cannot describe, experiencing an abundance of joy and a great sense of satisfaction. We were finally living the abundant life, just like Jesus promised when He said, ” I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.” (John 10:10 NKJV)
I was one of the leaders and one of the speakers in these meetings. In one meeting, I told the people, “It doesn’t matter if you’re standing up with your arms lifted or kneeling down or laying down or walking around or whatever position you take, seek to please Him in all you’re doing, but the main thing is that you let Him know that you want your life, what is in your heart, to be conformed to His life and for His image to be formed in you. In whatever position, just go all out for God!”
At one point, I left the main meeting place to go into another area to pray and seek the Lord. A few of the young people came with me because I was mentoring them, helping them to understand how I prayed and sought the Lord. We went to a smaller room where we spent some time seeking the Lord together while the large meeting was still going on. When we were done, we went back into the large meeting. So, even while the larger meetings were continuing, there were smaller meetings for training purposes.
As wonderful as these meetings were, the scene changed to reveal what was happening in my family relationships. It seemed like I was going back and forth between being in these meetings and seeing my heart for my wife. She didn’t look like my wife, but I knew she was my wife. I blessed her socks off because I continually spoke such powerful words of love to her, sharing my heart’s desire for her to be blessed, to have everything God wanted her to have. As I spoke to her, she cried because she sensed the love of God flowing through my words. Every area of her life was getting ministered to by the power and love of God. As I spoke to her, I also felt that same love of God returning to me.
Then the scene changed again. I was in the Navy with a bunch of other sailors. It was time to report back to our post, so we were returning to our submarine. As we were going aboard, the submarine was already starting to move and submerge. I sensed a strong connection between all of us, as if we were one unit with each of us moving perfectly in step with the others, without even looking at each other. We moved as one, even though we were each doing different tasks as we got on board.
As we submerged under water, I saw large sharks trying to attack us, but we paid no attention to them and were not afraid because we knew they could not touch us inside the safety of the sub, which was much bigger and stronger than them.
Then the scene changed again and we were back in the large meeting place. An older man that we did not know entered the meeting place and walked about half way down the center aisle and stopped there as if he was not sure what to do next. As soon as we saw him we immediately knew there was something not quite right with him.
Someone asked him a question, “What do you want?”
That simple question was all it took. The conviction in that place was so strong it came all over him and completely exposed him for seeking his own agenda. He did not have in mind the heart of God or any interest in what God wanted. God had accepted our invitation, our unanimous cry for more of Him, had filled that place so strong with His presence, anyone who entered was immediately brought under heavy conviction because no unclean thing can remain in His presence.
When I woke up from this dream, the same power of the Holy Spirit that was present in those meetings was still resting on me heavily and causing me to manifest the same hunger and same cries for more of Him. I felt greatly impacted, like I had been there.
Since that night, I have been seeking God and studying the scriptures to understand what I saw, but still feel like I have barely scratched the surface because there is so much more to learn. It profoundly impacted my understanding of God’s righteousness and His plans for His righteous remnant in the days ahead, which I will do my best to share.
This is chapter one. The remaining chapters are devoted to interpreting different parts of the dream, which has been an amazing journey of discovery. Stay tuned for chapter two!
