Prophetic Dream: We’re in a Season of Fulfillment, So There Will Be No More Delay

Several nights ago, I had an intriguing dream. It was like I was invited into someone else’s house, yet there was a sense of ownership as well—in particular in regards to three separate orchid plants which I was taken to view.

It was as if I owned them or was responsible for them somehow.

Incredibly, one by one these three orchids had all bloomed on the same day, each producing one remarkably large and beautiful bloom. Each bloom had an overwhelming fragrance, as if out of this world. As I buried my face in one and inhaled its scent, I remembered thinking that this must be the smell of heaven. The scent was so overpowering that as I awoke, I was surprised to find it wasn’t real—that I had been dreaming!

The Scripture the Lord brought to mind as I prayed and meditated on this dream was Jeremiah 1:11-12 (NKJV), which reads: “Moreover the word of the Lord came to me, saying, ‘Jeremiah, what do you see?’ And I said, ‘I see a branch of an almond tree.’ Then the Lord said to me, ‘You have seen well, for I am ready to perform My Word.’”

Something I have heard the Lord say repeatedly lately is that we are in a season of fulfillment. According to commentary sources I consulted, the poetry of the symbols used in this passage is of exquisite beauty. In harmony with words of hope, Jeremiah sees the almond bough, with its bright pink blossoms and its pale green leaves, the token of an early spring rising out of the dreariness of winter. The name of the almond tree (the poetical name is used here, not the common name) made the symbol yet more expressive.

It was the watcher, the tree that “hastens to awake” (shâkêd) out of its wintry sleep, and thus expresses the divine haste which would not delay the fulfillment of its gracious promise, but would, as it were, make it bud and blossom, and bear fruit.

I’ve had multiple orchid plants over the years, and can recall one in particular that hadn’t bloomed in at least three years. On the exact day I had given up on it and went to throw it away, I discovered that a new flower spike had miraculously appeared. Sure enough, a short time later it was covered in beautiful blooms!

Friends, do not give up on your prophetic promises that haven’t “blossomed.” I feel the dream of the beautiful orchid plants was not specifically for or about me, but was representative of all those who have prophesied words of hope to others, and/or have received and stewarded the same. That there were three flowers seems important. Three in scripture typically means something that is complete, perfect or whole, as with the beauty of the trinity. The blooms appearing all on the same day represent that indeed, we are in a “day,” or season for prophetic promises to blossom, replete with the fragrance of heaven.

I invite you to speak the word of the Lord to your prophetic promises by declaring, “We are in a season of fulfillment—there will be no more delay.”
