Prophetic Dream; Shaking the Gates of Hell With a Basin of Water and a Towel

by | Feb 23, 2022 | Blogs, Prophetic Fire

Recently, as I was waking up, a dream slipped into the bedroom and curiously awakened me.

In this dream, I was standing in a bathroom with several inches of water. As I looked down, I was barefoot. I then woke up wondering what that was about.

I wanted to call someone for an interpretation, but it was too early. A little later, brushing my teeth, the interpretation came.

The bathroom prophetically represents a place of cleansing; my bare feet gave away the interpretation. I sense the Lord saying. “It’s time for an old fashion foot-washing, for the feet of My people have walked through desert places the last several years, kicking up dust, mud and mire (a stretch of swampy or boggy ground), affecting their walk with Me and one another.”

“It was just before the Passover Festival. Jesus knew that the hour had come for him to leave this world and go to the Father. Having loved his own who were in the world, he loved them to the end. “The evening meal was in progress, and the devil had already prompted Judas, the son of Simon Iscariot, to betray Jesus. Jesus knew that the Father had put all things under his power, and that he had come from God and was returning to God. So, he got up from the meal, took off his outer clothing, and wrapped a towel around his waist. After that, he poured water into a basin and began to wash his disciples’ feet, drying them with the towel that was wrapped around him” (John 13:1-5, NIV).

“When he had finished washing their feet, he put on his clothes and returned to his place. ‘Do you understand what I have done for you?’ he asked them. ‘You call me Teacher and Lord, and rightly so, for that is what I am. Now that I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also should wash one another’s feet. I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you. Very, truly I tell you, no servant is greater than his master, nor is a messenger greater than the one who sent him. Now that you know these things, you will be blessed if you do them'” (John 13:12-17, NIV).

For the grand finale of servanthood before the cross, He chose a towel and a basin of water, for He knew the journey ahead for His disciples would be a long road to walk. Many today are experiencing, “Throwing in the towel syndrome.” Maybe we should use it first and see what happens. We may be surprised whose feet we are washing.

This short dream reminded me of a vision I received many years ago, which I believe is a “now” word for the body of Christ:

Shaking the Gates of Hell with a Basin of Water and a Towel (This word includes all weary feet.)

In the Spirit, I saw God’s footstep down into cities and regions of the earth. I knew His foot represented great authority coming to earth.

When I saw His foot, I knew He had come to take back territory the enemy had stolen from His kingdom. As I began rejoicing at why His foot stepped down upon the Earth, He interrupted my praise service with a strong command: “Wash My feet!”

I was dumbfounded. I said, “Lord, how could I ever wash your feet?”

Pastors and Leaders Washing One Another’s Feet

The Lord spoke, “When you see pastors and leaders coming together and washing one another’s feet, you will see My foot come down with great power, releasing whole regions and territories back into My kingdom!”

I then saw a vision of pastors and leaders humbly kneeling before each other with basins of water and towels. As they began washing one another’s feet, titles, positions and even names of churches started drowning in that small basin of water. Pride, jealousy and envy were being drowned in just 10 inches of water. Weary, blistered feet that had lost their way in the dusty, soiled road of life were being healed by water and two hands of a pastor down the street. Help was never far away.

Even Our Eyes Were Being Washed with Tears

Tears began filling these basins to overflowing… tears of repentance from judging and misunderstanding one another. Even our eyes were being washed with tears to see that we were not each other’s enemy but were on the same team.

It was such a beautiful, pitiful sight. Pastors of huge churches and leaders of small churches, humbled and bowing before one another, confessing our total inabilities to advance God’s kingdom. Revelation began breaking forth upon us of how we needed each other. Many were held in each other’s grip, breaking together. Holy kisses were given out upon the faces and the feet. And a presence came as though we had kissed the face of God.

I Saw Divine Authority Flow

At that moment, I saw divine authority flow from the feet of one who was also in our midst. A divine authority and power were being unleashed upon regions and territories. We were shaking the very gates of hell with a basin of water and a towel. It seemed the smaller we became in one another’s sight, the bigger God became in the sight of the enemy. God began exalting Himself in the Earth and among the heathen.

I heard the Lord speak to the angels that were present during foot washing. “Take the tears from those basins and put them in bottles. They will bring forth a great move of My Spirit to bring in the harvest.”

“Wash My feet.”

Wisdom From the Towel

* The storm that terrified the disciples at sea put Jesus to sleep. Remember, He is never afraid, and as a believer, He lives inside you. Maybe you need a nap.

* With the growing airline difficulties, one day many of you will be taking a chariot ride to minister in, transported by the Spirit, just because you’re crazy enough to want to. Stay crazy (Acts 8:39, NIV).
