Dream; The Black Cloud
I was on this very large ship, it was white and the type that fighter jets land on in war, and in the distance I saw a very dark cloud rising. I knew that this was just not a cloud. As I watched this cloud it formed into a very deep black funnel – I have never seen such a black cloud in real life or even in photos– as this one was literally jet black, and I knew immediately that it was the manifestation of evil. It began to swirl and kick up and it came towards me. I had with me two loved ones. Out of the black cloud a man appeared and approached me of great power. He was pleasant in appearance – but I knew him to be dangerous and very menacing. He came right to me, and circled around me like he was looking for something. I understood that he was seeing how he could enter me/ my life so he could overtake me – and he saw that he could not so he looked at my loved ones. I immediately placed my right hand around one and my left hand around another and declared to him ‘ I take authority over these – in the mighty name of Jesus, you cannot touch them!’ and with that he knew he could not so off he returned into this cloud. And the cloud approached us with fury, we were literally in the middle of its destructive path – but we were untouched.
I saw how important it is to make sure we walk in Christ with our armor on and in use. That to be vigilant to live clean and blameless lives, quick to confess our sin and repent – so the enemy does not have any place for entry into our lives. Because the enemy did not see a place of entry in me, he went for those who I love. This affirms that we MUST pray for our loved ones – CONTINUALLY! To lift them up before God asking that His grace and mercy be upon them to protect them – and that the sin they are in, their unbelief would be used for God’s purpose, and that the enemy would not have his way with them that they be kept under His protective Hand.
Dream: There is sound in silence
I all of a sudden could hear the most foul, evil, satanic, murderous, terrifying, overpowering and deceiving voices – they were overbearing, so very repulsive and they shook me to the core. I was in a house and went to the window so I could jump out to escape them, then I realized they were outside too – I had no way to escape for they were everywhere!
The voices are of the satanic force in our world – heard only in the spiritual realm as I heard them. These voices speak constantly they leave no space, for all is filled with their voice. They are like a satanic wind that is continually blowing to snare and catch and influence all who have no guard to protect them. The force they contain enters into the very smallest of cracks that we leave open. The souls who have nothing to do with Jesus Christ are like what I felt – helpless and hopeless. And still, those who have Jesus, are still at risk if they do not guard their souls as we are instructed to. We have the armor of God given to us – as Paul instructs us with each piece we are to have and apply. Ephes 6:10-18
We as believers truly must take serious that there is a devour-er out there whose aim is to kill, steal and destroy! For far too many of us, we are complacent of this and plain lazy to our own ruin. We would much rather muffle the voices with things, doings and substances.
Vision; Praise is Power
I could visually see and feel the pain, chaos, fear, gloom, dread and anxieties whirl all around me. The amount of distress and darkness was unbearable because there was the feeling that there was no recovery or escape from it as it quickly consumed and overwhelmed. I knew that I was experiencing what we as individuals feel and go through and as a whole of society and how the terrible weight held each captive. I was able to see visibly depression, heartache, fear, loss, worry, dread, terror and everything else that was dark and evil. I could see the force and the ownership it held upon the world. My heart was pleading to God for his answer, his help…..
He turned my attention to a small box that lay strewn on the ground. It was opened a crack and I could see the power, the purity of life, truth and light flow outward from it as a living energy. As I looked upon the box I immediately understand that it contained healing, love, blessing, protection, joy, goodness, kindness, beauty, restoration, wisdom, knowledge, peace as it contained all resources to overcome. It vibrated crazily as if it were waiting for it to be tapped into so it could be unleashed.
It does not makes sense in explaining it with mere words but what I witnessed revealed to me that the force and darkness that was being experienced was not real, but as like a shadow – in comparison to what lie within that box. Although the heaviness of what I felt was a reality – it was not THE REALITY.
In the instant upon looking at the beautiful box I knew what was needed to access it; the answer to combat the dark atmosphere I was experiencing. It was so very simple; to Praise God in all things, yet it was not about simple lip service but rather an attitude. To ever look to our God and give attention to who He is by continually recognizing that it is He that is greater, He is what matters in and among what we may be experiencing. The point that I got in seeing what I saw was that it is ONLY when we give our eyes and attention – our focus to God will we ever have a chance to move through life’s challenges. There is the tendency to thank God for the things and circumstances in our life – but this is not where the power of His love is. For too many times this can become a self-orientated thankfulness because it is about us. It would be like: ‘ Lord, you are so very great, full of love and are all that matters to me’, rather than, ‘Thank you Lord for my house, my kids and that I have my health’. The difference is clear.
In this posture of living we are in the position to hear from God as He leads us through.
All the powers of this world are under the sway of the wicked one; and has the ability to fool and deceive us – to divert our eyes and hearts away from the Source of all life. The world is a cesspool of the work of this artist’s (Satan) craft; where many have been victimized. The truth of the matter is that it is all an illusion, of what is real – in essence to what REALLY matters. The power to overcome is to be ever present with what really is; or better said: WHO really is. The box contained the answer to be free of the chaos that these shadows bring – which is the power of praise to our God. It is the practice and discipline to ever tell Him that He is worthy of our attention by giving Him praise for who He is.
