A DREAM VISION ABOUT THE USA – AND THE ANSWER
I realize many people reading this posting live in countries other than USA.
However, this message is extremely relevant to all readers.
THE DREAM VISION I HAD WAS AS FOLLOWS:
In the night I was awakened with a dream or night vision. I prefer “vision” because the prophet Joel said, "It will happen afterward, that I will pour out my Spirit on all flesh; and your sons and your daughters will prophesy. Your old men will dream dreams. Your young men will see visions.” (Joel 2:28)
In the vision I saw a band of paramilitary men in black uniforms and face masks with assault rifles. They were standing guard, taking over, a local community shopping area. It could have been a downtown metropolitan shopping area . . . or a small town local community shopping area. There were about eight or ten of them. I was made to KNOW in the vision that this was in the USA.
They had their weapons ready at waist level with straps around their shoulders. One of the men [citizens] in the crowd resisted, and said: “This is the USA and you cannot do that here; this is our country!” Immediately one of the paramilitary men walked to the man, aimed his assault weapon at the man’s face with the end of the barrel about three inches from the man’s face, and shot at him. Nothing came out of the weapon but air.
After that, I realized that I was in the crowd. I went to the man who shot and told him: “I challenge you. You can NOT do that here. This is our country. I will defeat you myself.”
After that statement, I grabbed an iron bar and started after the man. He then jumped into a cement stairwell, or encasement. I began pounding into the stairwell to attack the man, attempting to strike him; however, he never came out. I then began to challenge the other paramilitary men. They were powerless.
THE INTERPRETATION OF THE DREAM VISION IS THIS:
Today, in the world, there are TWO churches:
1. The Western and European church.
2. The persecuted church (most of which is underground).
Today, in the world, there are TWO major OVERT militant spiritual forces in the world:
1. The evangelical soul winning church (having some members from all arenas of Christendom: Protestant, Catholic, non denominational, transdenominational, independent, non affiliated, house church, cell groups, and underground churches). These are militant spiritually, but NOT physically, operating in the Spirit of God.
2. The fundamentalist Islamic factions (such as Wahabi and terrorist groups). These are militant physically, operating in the spirit of Satan.
The purpose of the enemy in Islamic fundamentalism is to QUIET . . . or STOP . . . THE VOICE of Christian witness, especially the Good News, but also including all types of freedom.
Islamists have NO joy. Their services do NOT manifest shouts of praise or exuberance. There is NO animation or liveliness in their services, because nothing about which to be animated. You know a tree by its fruit. Islam kills, binds, tortures, and oppresses. This is the fruit of Satan.
Christians, real Christians, shout with joy and praise God because of the saving, healing, delivering, real miracle working power of Jesus, the Messiah. This is the fruit of the Spirit. Acts 13:52 says, “They were filled with joy and with the Holy Ghost.”
The message of the dream is this: Do NOT let the enemy STOP your voice . . . (or your shout, for that matter!). If you lose your shout, you lose your victory!
Several forces are at work in the USA to stop FREE speech. Political correctness is one of them. Already, in Canada and New Zealand there are laws in place to prohibit speech (even from houses of worship) against such things as homosexuality and false religions.
Do everything you can to resist this:
First, start with intercession daily, and fast as the LORD leads.
Second, resist with your words.
Never let the devil quiet your voice. When Peter and the apostles were released from prison by the angel of the LORD, they then went into the Temple and preached.
“When they had brought them, they set them before the council. The Kohen Gadol [High Priest] questioned them, saying, ‘Didn't we strictly charge you not to teach in this name? Behold, you have filled Yerushalayim [Jerusalem] with your teaching, and intend to bring this man's blood on us.’ But Kefa [Peter] and the emissaries [apostles] answered, ‘We must obey God rather than men.’” (Acts 5:27-29)
The last great bastion of Christian freedom is in the USA. However, the persecuted church in Communist, Islamic, Asian and third world countries is growing rapidly because of bold witnesses who are willing to face death, extreme persecution, and torture, if necessary.
The old adage at weddings, “Speak now, or forever hold your peace,” is quite applicable in this situation.
Pray and fast.
Speak to Satan (bind him) from taking inroads into your family, nation and community.
Speak out and witness for Christ.
Speak out to community leaders and vote.
Speak in prayer and loose the Holy Spirit as a standard against the evil one and his forces.
"When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord shall lift up a standard against him." (Isaiah 59:19)
“It will happen in that day, that his burden will depart from off your shoulder, and his yoke from off your neck, and the yoke shall be destroyed because of the anointing.” (Isaiah 10:27)
In the olden days, the standard bearer always began the battle by first attacking (striking at) the enemy. The Holy Spirit of the God of Israel is our standard bearer, and we can loose Him to strike first.
In the dream vision of the night, I went out to attack with iron: symbolic of the sword of the LORD. The enemy can NOT stand against the Word of God and the Holy Spirit. Go out against the enemy with the ANOINTING and the WORD OF GOD.
Remember, in Isaiah’s day when the Assyrians were threatening King Hezekiah, and the Angel of the LORD killed 185,000 of the enemy in one night, according to the word of prophecy spoken by Isaiah the prophet. “The angel of the LORD went out and struck one hundred and eighty-five thousand men in the camp of the Ashur (Assyria, close confines of present day Iraq). When men arose early in the morning, behold, these were all dead bodies.” (Isaiah 37:36)
THE ANSWER: If the USA - and this applies to Israel, also - will let the Holy Spirit be their banner, or standard, God will give victory. Any community, or country, or government who does NOT allow the Holy Spirit to be their banner will fall.
It is time to be militant in spiritual battle as well as in soul winning.
“They who go against sin and Satan with the Holy Spirit at their head are sure to win the day.” (Isaiah 59:19) (Kimchi: Adam Clarke’s commentary)
