God spoke to me this week and told me that there is something very powerful that is about to happen in America! He said that I needed to post this dream and encounter that I had in 2001.
In 2001 I had one of the most vivid & disturbing dreams that I have ever had. In the dream I found myself at a funeral watching a man being buried. I did not have the pleasure of knowing the man in real life (who had been a Pastor) & I did not attend his funeral.
In the dream I was standing near his casket & watching the funeral. No one there could see me & no one knew I was there. In this dream there were 4 ropes on the four corners of the casket & the casket was slowly but surely being lowered into the grave. It was a very solemn moment. The Pastors wife was crying & it was a very hopeless situation. The casket was open & It was extremely clear that this man was dead! There was no question about it! There was a feeling of total hopelessness! This was the final goodbye! In the dream my attention was drawn to this mans hand which was placed next to the edge of the casket. As I stared at his very obviously dead hand his Pinky finger suddenly started twitching. This seriously startled me & took my breath away. With eyes wide open, I watched two of his other fingers begin to twitch. All three of them were trembling & shaking like an earthquake. This shocked me! I still remember how vividly real it was to see a dead mans hand start shaking. As I watched his fingers trembling the man very suddenly & forcefully jumped out of the casket and started hollering, I’m not ready to go! I’m not ready to go! This so startled me that I woke up out of a cold sleep, jumped out of bed & started hollering No, No, No! After I calmed down & started thinking about what this could be God spoke to me and said that this man represented America & the move of God that was coming.
About a month or so later I attended a repentance & reconciliation prayer event in Selma, Alabama at Browns Chapel. While there we had some astonishing things happen while we were praying over The Civil rights movement & The Spiritual high places in America (The name Selma means High Place). We saw a great deal of repentance & Spiritual breakthrough and were very encouraged that a change in the atmosphere had taken place over America. During this meeting God caught my attention & showed me the interior of the Chapel. It had an unusual look & feel to it. I suddenly realized that it was representative of the grave that I saw in the vision concerning America. On the way home from Selma God had me to stop by a Church in Alabaster, Alabama. He told me to go look for an old friend of mine who is a Pastor on staff there. Because It was a Saturday & there were only a couple of cars in the parking lot I felt foolish thinking in my mind that my friend would not be there! I turned a corner in the Church and ran into him in the hallway. I got excited because he was actually there and I told him about the dream of seeing the fingers move and about the dead man getting up! I also told him about what had happened at Selma earlier in the day! He got a really strange look on his face and told me that this was all very unusual! He stated, that at that exact moment; they were right in the middle of hosting a wake for a man that had just died. We both just kind of stood there looking at one another. He then told me about a dream that he just had. In the dream there were people lining the sidewalks! They were waiting to get in Churches all across America!
If you look at things right now; America is as a dead man! They have secretly said there is no hope! I believe that God is about to visit America in a very powerful way! An off the scale kind of way! There are many, many people that have prayed fasted & waited for God to turn things around in America. I believe that as a result of many prayers that an unprecedented move of God (a great awakening) is on the way!
As I prepared to post this Dream, God reminded me of a Vision that I had in 2006. He said to attach it at the end of this post. I wrote it down right after it happened & shared it with several area Churches. It is about three very powerful Horses that were actually representative of three moves of God, that God has been desiring to give away for some time!
Vision I wrote out in 2006:
I had a strange thing happen this past Saturday. I was at a friend’s house & he began watching The Kentucky Derby. It was kind of exciting to watch and see who would win. After the race I sat back down with my friend & the movie Sea Biscuit came on & I also ended up watching it. It was pretty good & was about a mistreated horse & 3 guys that everyone had given up on. Sunday after Church, I was eating lunch & started thinking about horses & I had a vision. I Saw Jesus holding three horses. Jesus asked a pastor if he wanted to ride one. The horse that Jesus offered the pastor had a huge grin on its face. I could tell that it was an unusual Horse. It seemed to have a mind of its own & was not what we call tame! The Pastor could get on this Horse or He could get off, but the Horse was going to go wherever it wanted, The Pastor could not control it. This Horse would not throw him or hurt him, but it definitely was going to do its own thing. It bucked, spun, turned, snorted, laughed, everything. You had 2 choices with this Horse get on & hang on for the ride of your life, or stay off. Those were the only 2 choices. I saw this pastor with a boyish grin get on & ride awhile & then get off. He said woughhhhhh…that is serious. He walked around a little while & then got back on. Later that Sunday evening at an unrelated Church meeting a lady walked up to me in the middle of worship & tried to give me a banner to wave. It made me very uncomfortable because I had never waved one before. She was very persistent & several ladies told me to go ahead. Although very embarrassed I finally took the banner from her & went to the front of the Church & began waving it. To my utter amazement; it had Horses on it! It read “Run with the Horses”!
Just a little while before having this vision I was seeing & thinking about old mechanical Horses that we used to put a quarter in & ride when we were kids. I remember thinking that they only had 1 speed. They were either on or off – that was it! You could get on or get off, but that was all there was, no other controls. I believe this Horse is representative of the Holy Spirit in this coming move of God. You have 2 choices, on or off, in or out, Hot or Cold, Yes or No – you can not control this Horse (Move of God)! Something is going on in the Spirit realm right now! God is ready to move! I do not know the significance, but a Quarter Horse’s characteristic’s has some significance.
