Prophetic Dream

Dear Saints,

The Dream

I had a dream in which the Holy and Promised Lands had come together. I was standing by a rail, high up with a view of the whole scene. In front of me was a big, deep river.

The water of the river was crystal clear, and you could see everything in it. The river was rising. People were gathering on the land by the river, waiting for a boat. Some were in waiting rooms where there were provisions for people to have something to drink and to use the restroom.

The time was drawing near for the boat’s arrival and there was a sense of urgency on the land where the boat was expected to dock, as some people that were expected to be there were not. Others went out looking for them and to sound the alarm for them to come as quickly as possible.

I could see that many of the missing people were elsewhere, in a line to use another restroom, further away, to urinate. The line was so long that it would take an hour and a half for everyone to finish, but there was no urgency. Some people in the line were even still drinking. They could have held on and gone to the waiting room on the land. They were comfortable waiting in that line for no reason. By now they could hear the alarm sounding but were fixed in their mindsets and stayed where they were despite the warnings. It was shocking to watch because there were people I knew there.

Also on the land was a boy I knew that was fostered and another who had both parents and was loved dearly by them. The adopted boy was trying to be the centre of attention and was being distracting. The one with both parents was trying to keep him in order and this was slowing him with what he was meant to do. The effect of this was to cause some people to miss the path they were supposed to take. In any case the water had risen to the place where it was high enough for the boat to dock. It was clear that a lot of people wouldn’t make it on time, and this was very sad.

Interpretation, part one: the boat and the line

The land represents the Holy and the Promised Land coming together, a place of convergence and preparation that brings people together into promise. There are many people who have been standing right with the Lord, but have sadly allowed urges that have no real urgency to keep them waiting instead of moving into the promise. Somehow, they are willing to wait as long as it takes for those urges to be dealt with rather than to go onto the clear path that leads to the movement. These urges that they’ve not been able to overcome keep them out of God’s will, and they simply maintain their present situation instead of moving into purpose. I think at this time and in this season there some sacrifices need to be made and the full picture needs to be seen. Moving into promise will itself deal with those urges. The journey through the Holy into the Promise removes these urges that limits one’s capacity.

It’s not everything that you give time to. Some things feel bigger than they really are. They can wait. It’s just something you feel a need to relieve yourself from. Make sure that when it comes to things that have real urgency that you don’t waste your time.

I feel we’ve come to a moment like that of Matthew 16:18 where Jesus asked Peter “Who do men say I am?” We have walked with the Lord in the Body of Christ, and with the teachings and the trainings. The anointing and the understanding is increasing. However, some feel they need a word right now that addresses their urges and which interprets Jesus’ identity to them in a certain way. It might be ‘God, You are my provider’, saving the sins of the world, moving into the supernatural, or understanding the capacity we have. Simon Peter had walked with the Lord, and he was resolving himself not to move in the familiar. The Lord doesn’t want us to become familiar with our giftings or our calling, as he is redefining everything. As we recognise who He is, the gifts are being given back with sharpness, accuracy, compassion and power.

Jesus asks “Who do men say I am?” Who do we say He is? It is from the place of revelation that the power and the pronouncements come.

Interpretation, part two: the adopted child and the son

Where the distraction of the foster child has not been dealt with in this season, it can move people out of where they are meant to be and into a different place of unsanctified mercy, and bring about pollution in messages. At this time, we need to have the revelation and the power for the harvest that is to come and to be able to address the brokenness of those yet to be born and yet to be saved. It is important for the Church not to create a replacement theology to sustain it while it is distracted, but to be focused and take the right path, knowing who we are in Christ.

The water rose and everything could be seen within it. What an incredible season we are living in. I call you to prayer. We will not be distracted by urges but be alert to what the Lord is saying. There will be a clear sound. In Jesus’ name!


Psalm 16

Preserve me, O God, for in You I put my trust.

O my soul, you have said to the Lord, “You are my Lord, My goodness is nothing apart from You.”

As for the saints who are on the earth, “They are the excellent ones, in whom is all my delight.

Their sorrows shall be multiplied who hasten after another god; Their drink offerings of blood I will not offer, nor take up their names on my lips.

O Lord, You are the portion of my inheritance and my cup; You maintain my lot.

The lines have fallen to me in pleasant places; Yes, I have a good inheritance.

I will bless the Lord who has given me counsel; My heart also instructs me in the night seasons.

I have set the Lord always before me; Because He is at my right hand I shall not be moved.

Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoices; My flesh also will rest in hope.

For You will not leave my soul in Sheol, nor will You allow Your Holy One to see corruption.

You will show me the path of life; In Your presence is fullness of joy;

At Your right hand are pleasures forevermore.
