Prophetic Dream: We Are Moving Toward a Divine Acts 13 Moment

by | Jul 15, 2019 | Blogs, God Encounters Today

I received a vivid dream in which a roundtable of key national and international leaders in the body of Christ were discussing the end times or eschatology (the biblical study of the final destiny of the soul of mankind and the order of last days events).

These various leaders represented diverse views on these subjects.

At one end of the table was an important man known for a particular set of understandings; at the other end of the table was another influential leader who held a distinct and divergent interpretation to the first man in the dream.

The atmosphere in the dream was thick with tension as the leaders convened. But as discussion unfolded, an agreement was reached to seek the Lord together for the essential main points that the various theological camps actually held in common.

In this strategic dream, I acted as a moderator and convener to bring the leadership together. A spirit of camaraderie and cooperation resulted as clarity came forth when the leaders each offered up their “doctrines and personal views” to the Lord and everyone worshipped the Lord together.

It seemed to be another divine Acts 13:1-3 moment, where unity in diversity was celebrated and conformity and the prideful control spirit were set aside.

In the church that was in Antioch there were prophets and teachers: Barnabas, Simeon who was called Niger, Lucius of Cyrene, Manaen who had been brought up with Herod the tetrarch, and Saul. As they worshipped the Lord and fasted, the Holy Spirit said, “Set apart for Me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them.” Then after fasting and praying, they laid their hands on them and sent them off.

Prayer with worship was the key in creating an atmosphere where hearing the voice of the Lord was predominant.

The dream culminated with the presence of peace and joyful faith as I read a five-point agreement that each leader had signed. The document was titled: “A Glorious Eschatology.”

The following were the five clear points presented in this revelatory and instructional dream:

  1. We believe in a literal Second Coming of the Lord Jesus Christ.
  2. We believe in a literal eternal dwelling place of heaven and hell.
  3. We believe that the Great Commission will be fulfilled including a grand global harvest of souls with mighty signs and wonders following.
  4. We believe that Israel holds a special place in God’s heart and in His end-time purposes.
  5. We believe that the glory of the Lord will cover the earth as the Holy Spirit is poured out upon all mankind.

As I woke up from the dream, the phrase “moving toward a glorious eschatology” stayed with me.

Isaiah 60:1-3 was illuminated to me as key biblical text for the days to come. “Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you. For the darkness shall cover the earth and deep darkness the peoples; But the Lord shall rise upon you, and His glory shall be seen upon you. The nations shall come to your light and kings to the brightness of your rising.”

Before feeling a release to begin publicly describing what I experienced, I have prayed into this dream a great deal.

My intention in this article is simply to act as a reporter of the dream, not to attempt to solve all the complex theological issues on the end times (eschatology), or to give a final word on the subject.

This dream gives hopeful insight that we will come together in the coming days to earnestly seek the Lord. God will hear our prayers!

And yes, God has the final word. His truth will prevail.

God has a great plan, and the Lord of heaven and earth has a dream in His heart of a “glorious eschatology.” Amen and Amen!
