A Word for Those Fearing the Doom and Gloom

by | Jul 27, 2015 | Prophetic Insight

The Lord woke me up at 5:13 a.m. recently from a prophetic dream. In the dream I was walking out of my childhood home in the country to do my daily chores. We lived on a cattle and horse farm, so there were always plenty of chores.

As I walked out, three faithful dogs that always went with me everywhere greeted me. Then things started changing suddenly, as I looked across our place, I saw ministry leaders that we are currently in ministry with, and they were all in quicksand.

Now we all know that when you’re in quicksand you never panic. The leaders were whispering, “Help us.” In the dream, as I walked toward them, the ground became solid and they were freed. Some climbed out of their situation with a little help. Others I had to drag out of the miry clay. The Scripture that stuck out to me was Numbers 16:48, “He stood between the dead and the living, and the plague was stopped.”

As I was pulling the leaders from the quicksand I saw a sheep running scared. It ran right past us and no one was able to help because they were themselves in need of help. Then the sheep was caught by three demonic beings and forced back into the barn.

As they carried the sheep back toward the stables and barn I followed after them. When I got close to the barn door I heard a voice say, “We will kill some, steal some and make the other to act dead.” Immediately the first part of John 10:10 came to mind: the thief comes to steal, and to kill and to destroy.

At this moment fear came over me and I ran into the house, found my safe place, and started praying. The Lord spoke this to me: “My ministers in this hour will walk in fear or faith. They will decide in the safe place which one they will choose. The safe place is the place of prayer.” I started asking God for a greater revelation of this prophetic dream in my morning quiet time. This is what God showed me:

“My leaders are sinking into the things of the world” (that’s what the quicksand represented) “that seem so familiar to them. They need someone to lend a hand and pull them out. They couldn’t help the flock (sheep) because of this. The enemy was there to kill some, steal some, and force others to play dead.”

Isn’t this a picture of to many believers today? They act as if they are dead. God needs leaders to arise. I felt the Lord say, “My flock is so scared in America right now and they need a voice to speak life into them, but so many key voices are sinking right now and have lost their voice.”

The word of the Lord came to me about ministers in this hour. He said we can’t be afraid of what’s around the corner, but we must walk in faith, knowing that whatever comes their way God will get them through.

If you’re sinking into things today, cry out for help and God will send you someone to lend you a hand. If you’re sinking, you can’t minister to the sheep God has entrusted into your care. Remember the last part of John 10:10: “But I have come to give that you will live more abundantly.” America needs her prophetic voices to arise and not be afraid of the attacks of the enemy. I believe the flock of America will be saved!
