On Monday the 23rd of October 2017, I dreamed I was standing with hundreds of people, all spread out behind a type of fort, defending it. It was a wooden wall that seemed not very strong, more like aged and weathered plywood with large open sections.
An enemy force was arrayed against us across the field and I knew we were all going to war soon. I could see movement, but I could not make them out. I started to worry as I realized I was not ready for battle. I went over to the fort wall to look for a weapon and I saw arrows, a shield and swords, all with a red color surrounding them, but they were high up on the wall and I couldn’t reach them. Nobody else I saw had a sword either, as if we had not met the requirement to use them.
I tried to grab a shield with arrows behind it, but as I got close, I couldn’t reach it. So, I went to get a stool, but others were rushing to grab weapons, so when I came back, it had disappeared. There were almost no weapons remaining, so I took a handful of arrows from a container bin on the ground, but they didn’t look very good. We were all in a rush as we knew the battle was about to commence, but I did not feel ready. The others looked unprepared too, wearing dirty, torn, shoddy, rag looking clothing and only a few of them had any weapons or armor.
I went back from the wall to ready myself. I had no sword or knife, but had a small piece of metal the size of a knife, but it was blunt and not even in the shape of a blade. Then I saw I had a bow and I was happy for a moment because it looked nice, an olden style horse bow, but as the battle was about to commence, I realized the bow string was a thick purple rope instead of a proper bowstring.
A man who seemed like a leader in our army came over and saw my weapons were ineffective. I asked him if there were any swords available I could use, but he shook his head. Like many of us, he had no sword for himself or much armor. Then I noticed the swords that were high on the wall had disappeared, replaced by ineffective sticks and clubs, but only a few of them remained as most had already been taken by our soldiers.
This leader had pity on me as I showed him my knife, which wasn’t even a knife, and he attached two small pieces of armor onto my upper thigh connecting to my outer armor. He then gave me a small knife and I put it in my belt. Then I realized I was wearing some very basic leather armor. So, I now had the knife and the bow with a small misshapen shield. I looked around and most people had nothing and were dressed in rags, although a few were carrying sticks and some others had bows and basic light armor.
I felt the energy increase as people began to move to their defensive positions near the fort wall. Then I heard a loud noise from the enemy camp (it could have been a trumpet, but I’m not sure). I could see their army vaguely, a huge force, but it was difficult to see them because their side of the field was in darkness and obscured in shadows, even though it was daytime. As the noise sounded, they fired a huge volley of arrows. We were confident, thinking the arrows would not penetrate our fort, but they reigned down on us and went through many large open windows and shattered through the thin walls. Most of our soldiers were standing before great open holes in the fort, thinking they were protected, but they were overconfident and almost our whole army was slain by the enemy’s first volley of arrows!
I didn’t trust our fort, so I had aligned myself with one of the wooden pillars supporting the wall. I held up my shield, which was hit by many arrows, but none penetrated and I was unharmed. I picked up my bow and a handful of my arrows, but when I looked at the arrows, I realized they were just sticks from the ground. They had bumps and small forks and knobs on them and were not straight and had no arrow heads! So, I dropped my bow and left it.
Then I heard a yell as a small number of our forces ran towards the opposing army screaming and yelling valiantly carrying large two-handed swords, the only swords I saw in our army, but they were all dressed in rags with no armor at all. Then I saw a vast number of the enemy forces charging forward, wearing full-face battle helmets, breastplates of iron, iron leg armor, full sized shields, and sharp swords. They decimated our unarmored forces, then advanced further and easily defeated us and captured our leader.
When the enemy came into our fort, they didn’t kill us (as they did many others), but took us as slaves because they knew we posed no threat since most of us were dressed in rags, unarmored, and had almost no weapons.
A middle aged woman wearing a black dress walked slowly among the enemy soldiers towards us. Everyone gave her a lot of space and even her own army seemed afraid of her. She gave me a twisted smile as she walked past. She had something in her hand and threw it at one of the prisoners and it attached to his leg. I felt immediate danger so I moved forward just as it exploded like a grenade. She laughed with joy at this.
Upon seeing this, one of our soldiers was so overtaken by anger, he rushed forward to kill this woman with his small knife. She pretended to be scared in a mocking way. The moment he tried to cut her, an invisible force repelled him onto the ground. She laughed again with glee. I thought about using my small knife to try to do something, but I felt it would not work. She looked at me, seeming to emanate very dark and evil energy.
Suddenly, I was inside a building, in a bath house area. The same woman was standing there, but dressed in white instead of black. She spoke to me softly, trying to convince me to come into a pool area. In my mind, I saw it had a sign over it called “Genesis” and I knew she wanted to try to make me forget what I knew (of God) and to become her slave. I felt her energy was suffocating and evil, like the demons I have seen in my dreams many times. I fled, but she chased me and she was abnormally fast, so she grabbed my shirt and I swung my arm and hit her hand away. There seemed to be no exit from this place, but I did not give up. She started appearing before me as I was running in different places trying to tempt me to give up. She was giving off a powerful energy of suppression, but I did not stop. She appeared in front of me again, but I saw a small gap in the wall behind her and I knew she was trying to obscure it. I knew from the Spirit I had to go that way and I suddenly had the power to jump right over her and went through this gap in the wall and turned to the right. I saw a fancy looking door that I knew was the exit. I opened the door and the illusion disappeared. Everything went black and I woke up.
After the dream, I prayed to the Lord for guidance and got the following words which He confirmed to me were from Him (I very rarely receive words from the Lord):
“A war is coming. My children are not ready to face the enemy. The enemy forces are ready. Ready yourselves now and draw near to Me in the time you have left.”
I prayed to ask the Lord how we can be ready, I felt the answers were:
- We need to spend quiet time with God ourselves and seek Him, there is no replacement for this.
- We need to pray for the whole armor of God (Ephesians 6:10-18).
- We need to abide in Jesus and His Word, following His commandments, coming out from sin and worldly ways.
- We need to prepare and ready each other.
I believe this advice is something we should take to prayer and consider seriously.
Here is what I received from prayer and seeking the Lord. The fort represents the church, which is weak because of not being founded on the Rock (Jesus Christ the only foundation). I felt this dream represents the majority of the body of Christ, those believers in Jesus who are unprepared and not ready for the war that is coming.
I also have my own interpretations from the dream, which are as follows:
The war was imminent and we were not ready, we were scrambling at the last moments, but were unprepared in many ways. We had few forces compared to the enemy. Our forces were over-confident and could not tell we were in rags, unarmored, with little weapons and were defending a thin-walled fort with large open windows! We believed we were safe from the enemy in our fort, oblivious to the large openings and thin walls, which allowed the enemy’s arrows to pour in and kill many. I believe many of our soldiers thought they were under protection and were confident in their defense, but did not make their defense in the Rock Jesus Christ, but who they thought was Jesus (not adhering to His teachings, but following the gospel of another).
We also did not understand how evil, ruthless, well prepared, well equipped, and well led (by the witch/demon lady) our enemy was. Their army was large, cloaked in darkness and fully armed and armored. They were prepared and ready. Their first attack, a volley of arrows, decimated most of our forces. I believe this shows how unprepared we were. They defeated us easily, taking many as slaves whom they did not slay. Their weapons included pure evil, magic, illusion, sorcery, deceit, fear and oppression, which they used against us to make us forget what we knew about God and our relationship with Him and to weaken our resistance so we would willingly submit to slavery and death. The only way of escape from the illusion of the witch was perseverance and guidance from the Holy Spirit.
I believe the reason why we did not qualify to use our weapons and armor, which were out of our reach and later disappeared, was because of sin and worldliness and departing from the sure foundation of the teachings and Gospel of Jesus Christ, revealing the spiritual condition of the church.
Because you say, ‘I am rich, have become wealthy, and have need of nothing’ – and do not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind and naked”. (Revelation 3:17 NKJV)
We were in rags, not wearing white, not clothed in the righteous acts of the saints.
And to her it was granted to be arrayed in fine linen, clean and bright, for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints. (Revelation 19:8 NKJV)
Also many of our soldiers were blind due to being arrogant and overconfident, even despite our defenses being already wide open and the fort walls made of thin, aged plywood. We were not founded on the Rock, nor was the Lord our refuge,
Blessed be the Lord my Rock, who trains my hands for war, and my fingers for battle – my lovingkindness and my fortress, my high tower and my deliverer, my shield and the One in whom I take refuge, who subdues my people under me. (Psalm 144:1-2 NKJV)
Those few of our army who had swords were overconfident, unable to see their own weaknesses, having no armor, so they were easily defeated.
We must put on the whole armor of God, which includes the helmet of salvation, the breastplate of righteousness, the belt of the truth of God, girding our waist with the truth, our feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace (walking in the Lord’s peace), and the shield of faith to block all the fiery darts of the wicked one and the sword of the spirit, which is the word of God. (Ephesians 6:13-17)
I believe this coming war is of course spiritual, as we have been told in the Word, but also physical. I believe demonic forces will be coming upon the earth in the future (I’ve had so many dreams of this) and we will be in battle in the near future. It might not be actual physical battle, but it might.
I believe this dream stands as a warning for the body of Christ to prepare for the coming war. We should all earnestly seek to ready ourselves in the Lord our Rock and fortress! I recommend the following to consider: Psalm 91, Psalm 23, Psalm 144, Psalm 56:3-4, Ephesians 6:10-18, Psalm 62:5-8, Psalm 46:1-3, Psalm 18:1-3, Psalm 149, Isaiah 54:17, Philippians 4:13 and Psalm 37.
I love you all my brothers and sisters. I would be very interested to hear your thoughts and interpretations. Just this morning, a brother posted on my YouTube channel, “I don’t know why, but I had a dream of God telling me to stay and fight the war. I don’t know why He would say that.” This served as an additional confirmation to me. Praise the Lord!
I welcome your views and interpretations and recommend you take this to prayer for your own confirmation and guidance.
With love, your brother in Christ,

Christopher Harris lives in Australia. He came to Jesus Christ and confessed his faith in 2016, after coming away from the faith since primary school. Since 2009, he began having dreams of tsunamis and other natural disasters, and these became more frequent and varied from 2015, and especially since he came to Christ. He’s had dreams of war, troop led exterminations and roundups, demons coming upon the earth, battling demons, false aliens (demons), natural disasters and tribulation. He has dreamed of the USA being conquered by Russia and Asian troops, a nuclear strike on the country and massive tsunamis (striking NYC and other areas). Christopher has put his focus on the Lord and awaits His return, while making videos to try to warn others of the times he believes we are living in, with the judgment of God at the door.
