I dreamed last night there was a flood. In my dream there was a “knowing” that I had left my house because of it. I was walking on a pathway to get back to my house, which split into two, one higher and one lower. The higher path was rocky and icy and on a steep incline, but the lower path was asphalt and smooth, curving downwards out of sight. I found myself starting to walk on the higher part of the path, which quickly became very difficult due to the rocks and ice. I paused, looking down to the lower path. I realized it was only a short hop down to the easier pathway, but if I kept going up this rocky path it would be increasingly further away from the lower path and I might not be able to get back to it.
In the dream, I felt as though I should drop back down onto the lower, smoother part rather than keep walking on the path in front of me that was icy and rocky and steeply inclined. After hesitating for a moment, I jumped back down and was able to easily walk, as it was asphalt and clearly marked. I looked up to my left and saw the upper path had become the side of a hill or a mountain. It had changed into rugged terrain and wasn’t a path at all.
When I arrived at my house, I found it had been robbed! The front door was kicked in and the door frame was splintered. Everything was smashed up and broken inside the home. The vandals had gone through every cupboard and every drawer, turning them upside down and scattering my belongings everywhere. Although at first I thought it was robbers, I realized that with the tremendous amount of damage I saw, that it had been done out of anger – the thief had been enraged.
All the valuables were gone, the ministry equipment and product had been stolen, the jewelry and $2,000 in cash and my guns. An angel walked up and said that it looks bad but that we are headed into the time of greatest abundance. I went to hug her but her but the angel’s face was down and she was stiff. Another person in the dream said it was the ex-husband of a ministry friend of mine, and that he had a beard.
There was a lot of damage to the house. An entire mantle – it looked like a double-door frame, although in my dream I “knew” it was a mantle – that had been torn out and was standing facing me. The frame was really beaten up, the paint was peeling but it was fully intact, standing to face me in my dream. There were broken windows, glass everywhere and total devastation everywhere I looked. I looked out the back door. The wooden back porch had warped terribly and there were huge holes in the wood as if trees had been ripped out of it, creating sinkholes or potholes.
Suddenly I was at the water’s edge. There were a lot of dead white mini-alligators, some kind of creature which I had never seen before. In my dream I thought they were like the dragonfly larvae called Helgermites, and that they would be useful as bait. There were thousands of them dead at the edge of the water, floating like schools of dead fish. The angel was with me, and said that I had built my dock all the way down into the water. I responded that I didn’t know how high the water would go. I looked down and there were weeds in the water in which I was standing. It was about ankle deep.
I won’t take time here to interpret the entire dream as there is an incredible amount of symbolism contained here; however, I welcome and encourage interpretation from all that read this. Here is the part of the interpretation that I want to share with you.
There is a flood coming! It is a Holy Spirit flood. It is a Holy Spirit chastity flood, a flood of sanctification and piety. It will wash away all the uncleanness in our lives. It will smash up our belief systems and wreck our houses. It will kill off all the little “white lies” that are the bait of the enemy, as well as gossip and slander, the backbiting of snapping jaws and sharp teeth that tear flesh. And it will leave us standing stronger, as the mantle – the doorway – was left intact, although it was beaten up and the paint was peeling, was fully intact and facing forward. This doorway will stand forever, the doorway of entrance into the Kingdom, the mantle of the true children of God.
The flood will cleanse away anger and wrath, leaving only love in its wake. There will be death and devastation, as the straw and the stubble is washed out of our lives, leaving only the rock, the true foundation intact. It will wipe away false doctrine, smash worldly values to which we still cling, and some – yes, some – will lose their ministries as a result of this flood of piety and chasteness, as this flood of truth in life and in spirit comes to expose our sins, even the secret sins that “no one” knows about.
If you choose the high road, instead of the easier lower path, you may be able to avoid this calamity. But if you do not – if you choose the wide road of this world, you will inevitably be subject to this flood, and in fact, may find yourself “collateral damage”, being found guilty by association.
However, fear not! The angel spoke at the beginning of the dream to say that even though it looks bad, we are still headed into the time of greatest abundance! I submit to you that even if you find yourself stripped clean by this flood, and all your “value-ables” are taken away, that you will be positioned to be a part of the greatest harvest in history! You will be positioned to be part of both the revival that is literally teetering at the edge of NOW, and in the coming end of days.
