Prophetic Vision of Illuminated Washington Monument Points to Awakening

by | Aug 29, 2019 | Blogs, Prophetic Fire

The Washington Monument was illuminated, almost glowing. Natural light wasn’t causing it to shine and brighten the sky around it. Only a supernatural light could cause such a radiant sight. It was as though the glory of God enveloped this national landmark.

I saw this in a vision during worship at Awakening House of Prayer. I kept on looking from the perspective as one standing near the base of the structure looking up. As I kept looking, I saw it from further away. The light wasn’t blinding to the eye but seemed to almost pulsate as the monument reached into the dark sky.

The vision was interrupted as worship ended and I had to step into the pulpit, but I could not shake it. Given that we have an Awakening House of Prayer branch in Washington, D.C., I determined to seek out the Lord for an interpretation of this vivid vision. I knew in my spirit it was a significant symbol bearing good news.

Washington Monument Significance

The 555-foot marble obelisk known as the Washington Monument was erected to honor President George Washington, who served as commander-in-chief of the Continental Army before the United States was officially a nation.

Washington goes down in history as, “first in war, first in peace and first in the hearts of his countrymen.” His legacy reminds us of the spirit of the American Revolution. But in recent years, Washington has been revered for a white flag with an evergreen tree that flew on ships in his “secret navy” in 1775.

That flag had the words “An Appeal to Heaven” written across the top in black, bold letters. Dutch Sheets received a revelation about this flag and its implications in the first war or our nation and has continued rallying intercessory prayer troops since.

A Sign of Coming Third Great Awakening

Before the prophetic vision, I did not know the Washington Monument was closed in August 2016 to repair elevators. A cable broke loose at the bottom of the elevator. Prophetically speaking, we can’t ascend with broken cables. The Washington Monument is set to re-open on Sept. 19.

I believe Sept. 19 is a significant day for the nation in the spirit dimension. I believe the relaunch of the Washington Monument is shifting something in the spirit, which is why I saw it illuminated in the vision. I believe we’re getting closer to another Great Awakening.

On April 21, 2007, the Lord woke me up at midnight with a prophetic word that I didn’t fully understand. The Holy Spirit spoke these words to me:

“There is a great awakening coming to this nation, for I have heard your cries and I long to heal your land. I am a covenant God and I will not forget the covenant I made with your Founding Forefathers. Yes, there will be a shaking, but the foundations will not crack and they will not crumble. Only those things which can be shaken will be shaken that the sin in the land may be laid bare.

“Repentance. I require repentance from My people who have through the generations allowed the enemy to take ground in this nation. I require repentance for the abortions and for the prayerlessness. I require repentance for the apathy and for the idolatry. You shall have no other gods before me. I am indeed the God of America.

“Yes, there is a great awakening coming to this nation. I am the author of it, and I will bring it to pass. Just turn from your wicked ways and humble yourselves. Stand in the gap and make up the hedge. I am the Lord, and I am a warrior. I will not leave or forsake this country. I will fight through you and with you to regain what has been lost.

“Be encouraged now because as you go forth boldly with My Word and My Spirit, there will be the sound of truth, and it will prevail in the land. Speak boldly and clearly and watch as the mighty men arise to take their positions on the wall and in the churches and in the marketplaces, for I am raising up deliverers and reformers in this generation who will not shrink back at the challenge that is coming in the days ahead.

“Yes, it will grow darker before My light shines brightly from this nation again. But the light has not been extinguished and will not be extinguished. The time to rise up is now. I am calling you to war. I am calling you to repentance. I am calling you to My side. I am the Captain of the hosts. I am calling you to victory. I am calling you to destiny. Will you answer?”
